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!

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.

In this exclusive interview with The New American magazine’s Senior Editor Alex Newman, world-renown German-Thai-American microbiologist Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi warns that the COVID hysteria is based on lies and that the COVID “vaccines” are set to cause a global catastrophe and decimation of the human population. Starting off, he explains that the PCR test has been abused to produce fear in a way that is unscientific. Next, he explains what the mRNA vaccines are going to do to the human body in terms and using analogies that anyone can understand. Among other concerns, he expects massive deadly clotting as well as immune system responses that will destroy the human body. Finally, Bhakdi, who warned of impending “doom” during a Fox News interview that went viral, calls for criminal prosecutions of the people responsible and an immediate halt to this global experiment.

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

Top ‘O the Briefing

No Thanks, Comrade Biden

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

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

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

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

What they don’t have is reality.

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

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

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

People are getting fed up with the mask nonsense.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This is from Bryan’s post as well:

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

Regarding the gun stuff:

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

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

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

I’ll stay positive for now. Whiskey helps.

Biden Picks Soros BDS Activist as Assistant Secretary for Human Rights~Her idea of human rights is cheering the destruction of Israel

CATHOLIC GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY IS CLEARLY ANTISEMITIC:

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism.

When Airbnb began boycotting the homes of Jews living in those parts of Israel claimed by Islamic terrorists, the Jewish communities of the United States rallied against the dot com.

Sarah Margon however stood against the Jewish communities and with the Airbnb boycott.

“Airbnb to remove listings in Israeli settlements of occupied West Bank. Thanks @Airbnb for showing some good leadership here. Other companies should follow suit,” she tweeted.

“Airbnb is playing a role by supporting the settlement real estate infrastructure — they’re perpetuating an illegal activity,” Margon ranted. “There is no way for a company…to do business in the settlements without violating the laws of occupation.”

That’s the woman Biden picked as his Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor.

"Yesterday @Airbnb agreed to stop renting in the Israeli-occupied settlements," Margon argued. "Other companies should follow @Airbnb's lead."

BDS will now have a powerful ally within the Biden administration and the State Department.

Margon’s hatred for Israel was not surprising. The leftist extremist was heading up the Human Rights Watch office in Washington D.C. HRW has defended BDS and recently issued a report falsely accusing Israel of apartheid. Airbnb’s temporary surrender to BDS was an HRW project

Sarah Margon was defending an HRW policy. HRW’s Deputy Director for the region had agreed in an interview that it was a crime for Jews to live anywhere in the West Bank. That same HRW official recently argued that the Biden administration should support the “right” to boycott Israel. Margon’s appointment would make that much more likely. So much for human rights.

Margon was active on social media “urging companies to pull out of the Israeli Settlements”, but her hatred for the Jewish State goes beyond an economic war of BDS in all its forms.

When Peter Beinart put out his infamous, “I No Longer Believe in a Jewish State” op-ed, Margon highlighted an excerpt calling for one state and the destruction of Israel.

“Peter Beinart on fire,” she cheered.

That’s Biden’s Assistant Secretary for Human Rights supporting the destruction of Israel.

Sarah Michelle Margon is one of a number of anti-Israel activists Biden picked including Maher Bitar, who was pictured dancing in a keffiyah in front of a banner reading, “Divest from Israel Apartheid” and is now Biden’s Senior Director for Intelligence on the National Security Council, and Hady Amr, who described being “inspired by the Palestinian intifada” and is now Biden’s point man on the conflict between Israel and the terrorists fighting to destroy the Jewish State.

Reema Dodin, Biden's Deputy White House Legislative Director, had argued that, “suicide bombers were the last resort of a desperate people.”   

Margon’s selection isn’t surprising for an administration that appears determined to put a few moderates out front while packing the policy ranks full of anti-American and anti-Israel extremists. At one point Matt Duss, an ally of Margon, Bernie’s foreign policy advisor, and one of the more infamously anti-Israel figures in the echo chamber, was under consideration.

While Margon may not be up there with Duss, whom she’s praised and promoted, her attacks on Israel and opposition to Jewish civil rights was consistent. When she wasn’t attacking Israel, she was attacking the idea of protecting Jewish students from her anti-Israel collaborators.

When President Trump signed Executive Order 13899 on Combating Anti-Semitism at colleges, Margon complained that it "ostensibly addresses antisemitism. But in reality it's a bogus initiative geared to stifle free speech & go after those who might criticize Israel."

Margon’s hatred and hostility for the Jewish state were relentless. 

As Hamas supporters rioted at Israel’s border fence with the terrorist statelet, a New York Times puff piece celebrated one of the rioters who was “screaming ‘Allahu akbar!’ and hurling stones”. 

Sarah Margon tweeted a link to it with the comment, “Extra important read when the new US SecState comes out of the gate noting Israel has a right to defend itself.”

When the Obama administration stood against Israel, she tweeted, “Vote affirms illegality of settlements, longstanding US policy. Thank you @POTUS.”

Margon repeatedly complained that the United States was providing Israel with military equipment and falsely accused it of “exploiting COVID-19 & using it as a pretext for repression.” 

“Such brutality & injustice rarely so stark,” she tweeted about a piece smearing Israel over casualties in Gaza.

After HRW, Sarah Margon joined one of George Soros’ Open Society Foundations as its director of foreign policy advocacy. The OSFs fund BDS groups and Soros, its backer, has blamed antisemitism on Jews and the “pro-Israel lobby”. "If we change that direction, then anti-Semitism also will diminish,” the extremist anti-Israel billionaire has argued.

"Despite what Giuliani wants you to think, being Jewish is not decided by political preference or how you live your life or how much you support Israel," Margon, who is of Jewish ancestry, had argued. But how you live your life does determine if you’re Jewish or not. 

And part of that is opposing antisemitism and the murder of Jews. 

A snapshot of Margon’s activism can be seen in her Twitter feed which shows her promoting attacks on Israel by HRW’s Abier Almasri who has defended terrorists. In one article promoted by Margon, Almasri described, “three military assaults Israel has launched during its armed conflicts with the Hamas-led Gaza authority since 2008”. Not Hamas terrorists: authority.

"Starting our day off right - visit to @RashidaTlaib," Margon tweeted in 2019 about accompanying Almasri to the militantly anti-Israel and pro-terrorist House member. 

Included in the tweet was Omar Shakir, an HRW BDS activist, on whose behalf Margon had campaigned when Israel told him to leave. “Where is the US on the ouster of my colleague @OmarSShakir from Israel? Virtually silent, just like on the Israeli security forces’ disproportionate attacks on Palestinians in Gaza,” Margon complained in 2018.

But it wasn’t just the Islamic Jihadis trying to murder Jews who animated Margon’s activism.

When President Trump took out the head of ISIS and said, “he died like a dog”, Margon whined about his “aggressive language” which “can easily be used to recruit & radicalize.”

“US is illegally transferring foreign ISIS suspects from Syria to Iraq, leading to botched trials & torture,” another tweet complained.

All of this will have severe consequences for American soldiers who have come under fire from Sarah Margon before.

When Air Force pilots bombed an Afghan hospital that Taliban fighters had been using, Margon wrote a letter to Obama's Secretary of Defense on behalf of HRW demanding a "criminal investigation" and the "possible criminal liability of US personnel."

Our men and women in uniform, like the Israelis, have to watch out. 

The Biden administration is coming for them.

US Catholic bishops urge Biden’s handlers to bring in more ‘refugees’

BY ROBERT SPENCER

SEE: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2021/04/us-catholic-bishops-urge-bidens-handlers-to-bring-in-more-refugees;

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

What about one’s obligations to one’s own community, to try to preserve their freedom and the stability of one’s society? That is selfish, Mario Dorsonville would likely say. And with jihadis crossing the border recently, do the U.S. Catholic bishops feel any obligation to support measures that would protect Americans from jihad attacks? Apparently not. The message that the bishops are sending to Americans is simple: drop dead.

The U.S. Catholic bishops appear to be absolutely unconcerned about the following facts: Adnan Fazeli, a Muslim refugee brought to Maine by Catholic Charities, died waging jihad for the Islamic State. Somali Muslim migrant Mohammad Barry in February 2016 stabbed multiple patrons at a restaurant owned by an Israeli Arab Christian; Ahmad Khan Rahami, an Afghan Muslim migrant, in September 2016 set off bombs in New York City and New Jersey; Arcan Cetin, a Turkish Muslim migrant, in September 2016 murdered five people in a mall in Burlington, Washington; Dahir Adan, another Somali Muslim migrant, in October 2016 stabbed mall shoppers in St. Cloud while screaming “Allahu akbar”; and Abdul Razak Artan, yet another Somali Muslim migrant, in November 2016 injured nine people with car and knife attacks at Ohio State University. 72 jihad terrorists have come to the U.S. from the countries listed in Trump’s initial immigration ban.

What’s more, all of the jihadis who murdered 130 people in Paris in November 2015 had just entered Europe as refugees. In February 2015, the Islamic State boasted it would soon flood Europe with as many as 500,000 refugees. The Lebanese Education Minister said in September 2015 that there were 20,000 jihadis among the refugees in camps in his country. On May 10, 2016, Patrick Calvar, the head of France’s DGSI internal intelligence agency, said that the Islamic State was using migrant routes through the Balkans to get jihadis into Europe.

The bishops, of course, have 91 million reasons — indeed, 534 million reasons — to turn against the truth and disregard the safety and security of the American people: “In the Fiscal Year 2016, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) received more than $91 million in government funding for refugee resettlement. Over the past nine years, the USCCB has received a total of $534,788,660 in taxpayer dollars for refugee resettlement programs.”

With that kind of money involved, is it any surprise that the bishops want more “refugees,” and show no concern whatsoever for the possibility that they might be facilitating the entry of criminals and jihad terrorists?

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

“The Catholic Church is urging President Biden to accept a lot more refugees,” by Charles Davis, Business Insider, April 19, 2021:

President Joe Biden may attend mass every Sunday, but when it comes to welcoming more refugees he has thus far been a disappointment to the Catholic Church.

Biden campaigned on establishing a more humane immigration system, promising, in particular, to restore a refugee resettlement program that had been systematically gutted by his predecessor. Soon after taking office, the first Catholic in the White House in more than 50 years announced plans to resettle as many as 125,000 refugees in fiscal year 2021, which begins October 1.

But last week the Biden administration disappointed immigrants and their allies when it informed Congress it was not committed to raising the ultra-low cap on refugee admissions set by the last White House. Left unchanged, just 15,000 people, at most, would be resettled by the end of the current fiscal year. For comparison, the US admitted over 200,000 refugees in 1980.

Bishop Mario Dorsonville, head of the US Conference on Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Migration, said Monday the country can do a lot more to help the world’s most vulnerable

“The number of refugees who will be welcomed this year is far short of what we can do as a country and is not an adequate response to the immense resettlement need,” Dorsonville, an auxiliary bishop in Washington, DC, and himself an immigrant from Colombia, said in a statement.

The church frequently clashed with former President Donald Trump. US bishops accused him of seeking to “instigate panic in our communities” with mass deportations, and describing his efforts to practically eliminate refugee resettlement — he launched racist attacks on Somali refugees who had already come, while his adviser, Stephen Miller, advocated slashing admissions to zero — as “counter to our values as a nation of immigrants.”

The US Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Migration and Refugee Services is one of nine nonprofit organizations that partner with the US government to meet the needs of refugees who arrive in the country. Those seeking protection from war and repression deserve compassion and assistance, it teaches, citing the “mercy of Christ, who himself was a immigrant and child of refugees.”…

Vaccine death wave now unstoppable… 122 million Americans at risk

Vaccine death wave now unstoppable... 122 million Americans at risk

According to the CDC Covid Data Tracker page, over 122 million Americans have already received at least one dose of a covid vaccine. That's over one-third of the population, and it's increasing by nearly 2 million people per day in the United States.

As Americans are being killed by vaccines, globalists are replacing the American electorate by bringing in massive waves of illegal aliens, many of whom are pregnant women ready to give birth to anchor babies. The criminal Marxists who stole the 2020 election are continuing their plan to mass murder real Americans (with vaccines and bioweapons) and replace them with compliant, low-skilled illegals who will vote for socialist handouts and freedom-killing Democrat policies.

Today's Situation Update tells the full story on what's really happening with the vaccine depopulation weapon and why literally millions of Americans will likely die from this vaccine over the next few years.

Biden nominates David Chipman for Director of ATF

Today, the president nominated former ATF agent and staunch anti-gun advocate David Chipman for the position of director of the ATF. Chipman's resume includes stints working for anti-gun groups Everytown for Gun Safety, and currently the Giffords gun control group. During his time as an ATF agent, he was also involved in the Waco massacre as the case agent, which you'll remember as the time the government burned down a building full of little kids. It's difficult for me to remain objective about this, since this nomination would place someone at the reigns of the agency responsible for regulating the firearms industry and gun ownership who is completely opposed to private ownership of guns.

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- During a press conference on Thursday, President Biden announced that he would once again be targeting law-abiding gun owners by ordering ATF to develop two new restrictive regulations. Aiming to accessorize the Department of Justice’s anti-gun leadership team, Biden announced his nomination of gun control lobbyist David Chipman for Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.

It’s hard to imagine choosing a nominee who is more hostile to the rights of American gun owners than Chipman.

Chipman is a Gun Control Extremist

David Chipman’s current employer, Giffords, co-founded by the United States Senator Mark Kelly, filed a brief in the landmark Second Amendment case, District of Columbia v. Heller. The brief argued that “The Second Amendment Does Not Limit the Options Available to Cities to Address the Problem of Gun Violence.” Notably, Giffords argued that the District’s complete ban on the possession of handguns by law-abiding Americans was constitutional. Such an interpretation would have completely eviscerated the Second Amendment.

This extremist view put Giffords sharply out of touch with the American people. Nearly, three-quarters of Americans at the time thought the Second Amendment “guaranteed an individual right to own gun.” For those who might think that Giffords has moved on from such extreme views, their law center’s website still proudly notes that they filed the brief arguing “that the right to possess a firearm is not based on an individual right of self-defense, but rather related to service in a militia based on the prefatory language in the Amendment.”

Chipman Wants to Target America’s Rifle

In October 2018, Chipman argued in favor of subjecting all AR-15s and potentially all semi-automatic rifles to regulation under the National Firearms Act. Beyond the problems of subjecting the most popular rifle in America to punitive taxation and registration, such a move would likely lead to a decade-long backlog in NFA registrations, effectively banning America’s rifle, firearm suppressors, and other firearms currently subject to NFA regulation.

ATF operates on a “normal” backlog of 9-12 months for NFA applications. Even with this backlog and despite the registry being nearly 90 years old, as of 2020 there were only 6.6 million firearms in the registry. And, in recent years ATF has had the capacity to process only about 350,000 NFA forms per year. Even using the most conservative estimate for the number of AR-15s in America, with ATF’s current forms processing capacity, the agency would clear the backlog in NFA forms sometime around 2070. And, that’s only if the agency didn’t process a single NFA form for a suppressor, short-barreled rifle, or other NFA firearm.

As an agent with ATF for over two decades, Chipman is familiar with the agency’s NFA form processing capacity. He likely sees such a delay as a feature rather than a defect.

Chipman reiterated his wish to subject existing AR-15s to the NFA in a Reddit “Ask Me Anything” last year, but he further explained his position on future sales: “The biggest challenge we have is sheer numbers. It has been estimated that there are around 15 million assault rifles currently in circulation. I believe we should ban the future production and sale to civilians and afford current owners of these firearms the ability to license these particular guns with ATF under the National Firearms Act.”

Chipman Has Repeatedly Lied to Further his Gun Ban Agenda

Regular readers of NRA-ILA alerts are likely familiar with Chipman’s lies.

In 2019, we explained how Chipman was trying to mislead the public regarding firearms suppressors. He claimed that “The gun does not sound gun-like. It takes the edge out of the tone . . . This is how I would describe it: It makes a gun sort of sound like a nail gun.” As we said at the time, “The 30-35 dBA difference between a nail gun and a suppressed pistol will be perceived as at least eight times louder to the human ear.”

And, this wasn’t even the first time he lied about firearm suppressors. In 2017, Chipman claimed, “Anyone who has worked in law enforcement for as long as I have will tell you that silencers were not designed to protect hearing, they were designed to make it difficult for people to identify the sound of gunfire and locate active shooters.” Again, at the time, we set the record straight by pointing out that he was simply flat wrong regarding the design intent of firearm suppressors. “Unfortunately for Mr. Chipman, Hiram Percy Maxim, the designer of the firearm suppressor, made his design intent perfectly clear.  Maxim wrote “The Maxim Silencer was developed to meet my personal desire to enjoy target practice without creating a disturbance . . . I have always loved to shoot, but I never thoroughly enjoyed it when I knew that the noise was annoying other people. It occurred to me one day that there was no need for the noise. Why not do away with it and shoot quietly?” At the time, Chipman’s employer also received three “Pinocchios” from the Washington Post for another misleading claim about firearm suppressors.

In the same Reddit “Ask Me Anything” discussed above, Chipman made the absurd claim that “At Waco, cult members used 2 .50 caliber Barretts to shoot down two Texas Air National Guard helicopters. Point, it is true we are fortunate they are not used in crime more often. The victims of drug lords in Mexico are not so lucky. America plays a role in fueling the violence south of the border.” Needless to say, no helicopters were “shot down” “at Waco.”

In testimony before the House Judiciary Committee in 2019, Chipman claimed that the American gun market was “flooded” with “foreign-made ARs.” Anyone even remotely familiar with the American gun market knows that this claim is false. Not only are nearly all AR-15s made in America, but continued strong demand for ARs seems to also refute his notion that the market was “flooded.”

It is clear that, if confirmed, Chipman would use every tool at his disposal to attack the rights of law-abiding American gun owners.

Chipman’s views on the Second Amendment and his work as a gun prohibitionist should disqualify him from serving as the Director of the ATF.

Rep. Lauren Boebert: Gun Control is a way to 'Enslave and Control the People'

“Democrats & their allies seek to enslave and control the people of the United States and every aspect of their lives.”

Fearless Second Amendment defender and Colorado Representative Lauren Boebert responded to installed puppet Joe Biden’s ridiculous gun control executive actions with a truth bomb on Twitter.

Biden dutifully obeyed the “impatient activists” pushing to disarm Americans with his series of executive actions designed to degrade and dismantle the Second Amendment to the Constitution, which states that the right to keep and bear arms “shall not be infringed.” The rights outlined in the Constitution are meaningless unless Americans understand their rights and fight for them.

During his embarrassing, error-ridden speech, Biden announced David Chipman as his pick to run the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) (which Biden referred to as the “AFT” twice). Chipman is a gun control activist who notoriously lied about events that occurred in in Waco in 1993, claiming that members of the Branch Davidian sect “shot down two helicopters during a standoff with federal agents”, a blatant lie.

From the History Channel:

“Though initially reluctant, Attorney General Janet Reno ended up approving a plan to fire CS gas (a form of tear gas) into the Mount Carmel compound to try and force out the Davidians. Just after 6 a.m. on April 19, 1993, FBI agents used two specially equipped tanks to penetrate the compound and deposit some 400 containers of gas inside.

Soon after the attack ended, around 12 pm, several fires simultaneously broke out around the compound, and gunfire was heard inside. Safety concerns prevented firefighters from entering Mount Carmel immediately, and the flames spread quickly and engulfed the property.

Though nine Davidians were able to escape, investigators later found 76 bodies inside the compound, including 25 children. Some of them, including [David] Koresh, had fatal gunshot wounds, suggesting suicide or murder-suicide.”

According to a must-read article at lawofficer.com, “Chipman’s Twitter account is now private and in recent days, he deleted more than 1000 tweets.” Chipman is “senior policy adviser” to former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords’ gun grabbing organization.

Citing founding father George Mason‘s quote: “To disarm the people is the most effectual way to enslave them,” Boebert said in part that “Democrats & their allies seek to enslave and control the people of the United States and every aspect of their lives.”

RAIR Foundation USA’s Amy Mek is also a strong supporter of the Second Amendment. Last month Mek Tweeted “Nazi Germany established gun control in 1938 & from 1939 to 1945, Millions of Jews & others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up & exterminated”, she said. “I refuse to be a victim!”, she continued.

The New American: Biden Treasury Secretary Yellen Embraces Globalism, Calls for Global Corporate Minimum Tax

BY STEVE BYAS

SEE: https://thenewamerican.com/biden-treasury-secretary-yellen-embraces-globalism-calls-for-global-corporate-minimum-tax/;

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

In a pugnacious speech on Monday to the Chicago Council on Global Affairs — an organization formed in 1922 as the Chicago Council on Foreign Relations — President Joe Biden’s secretary of the treasury, Janet Yellen, explicitly rejected the “America First” standard used by former President Donald Trump. Instead, Yellen made it very clear that her priority is the “international order,” even calling for a minimum global corporate income tax.

While the Chicago Council on Global Affairs pretends to be a “neutral forum” to discuss world politics, it clearly promotes the idea that American foreign policy should put the world, not America, first. Globalists have dominated its leadership for years. For example, globalist and Kennedy-era UN Ambassador Adlai Stevenson was its president in the 1930s.

Yellen’s speech certainly reinforced the organization’s globalist ideology.

Without mentioning him by name, Yellen contrasted Trump’s supposed isolationism with Biden’s dedication to internationalist principles. “In the most recent period, when we might have adopted policies at home to face these issues and joined our allies to address issues abroad, we isolated ourselves and retreated from the international order that we created.”

Of course, isolationist is a straw-man argument, and it is intended as a slur. President Trump was engaged with other nations regularly, but instead of adapting policy to what was good for the European Union, or China, or some other nation, power, or international organization, it was his policy to put America First. Globalists such as Yellen typically will attribute all sorts of calamities to “isolationism.” On the 50th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, then-President George H.W. Bush blamed the “isolationism” of the United States for that incident. Of course, this is ludicrous, as it was America’s increasing involvement on the side of China in the Second Sino-Japanese War, including an oil embargo against the Japanese, that eventually led to the attack on December 7, 1941. In other words, it was not some abstract principle of American “isolationism” that caused Hideki Tojo to go to war against the United States.

Yet, Yellen followed this globalist propaganda pattern in her speech. “Over the past four years, we have seen firsthand what happens when America steps back from the global stage. America first must never mean America alone. For in today’s world, no country alone can suitably provide a strong and sustainable economy for its people. Over time, a lack of global leadership and engagement makes our institutions and economy vulnerable.” (Emphasis added.)

According to Yellen, the “invaluable lesson” that was learned from the Great Depression and the Second World War was “the United States must not go it alone.”

This is, of course, based on some rather faulty premises as to what caused the Great Depression and the Second World War. Certainly, the Great Depression was not caused by the United States going it alone. Had the United States stayed out of the First World War, the belligerents in Europe would have most likely come to a peaceful settlement, and the monetary systems of the great powers, including that of the United States, would not have been weakened by inflation caused by governments printing money to pay for the war. That inflation, as was predicted by the great economist Ludwig von Mises, is what caused the economic collapse of 1929 — not “isolationism.”

As is typical, however, government causes a problem, blames it on something else, then offers a “solution” of more government. Yellen supports this notion completely. “In the aftermath of destruction [of World War II], the United States built strong political and security alliances that helped keep our country safe and helped our economies flourish. We created global institutions, such as the United Nations, and financial institutions, such as the International Monetary Fund and World Bank, to reduce economic conflict and address global poverty.”

Of course, this supposed addressing of global poverty meant trillions of dollars out of the pockets of American taxpayers to foreign nations. One must wonder: If the IMF were so successful, why does Yellen so strongly criticize all the supposed “inequality” in the world that remains?

Speaking of economic issues, Yellen addressed Biden’s promised corporate tax-rate hike from 21 percent to 28 percent, intended to help pay for his massive infrastructure spending plan. Realizing that an increase in U.S. corporate tax rates could send American companies overseas, as happened during the Obama administration, Yellen pushed for a minimum global corporate income tax, particularly across G-20 nations. “It is important to work with other countries to end the pressures of tax competition and corporate tax base erosion,” Yellen said.

She also condemned Trump — although, again, not by name — for the problems of COVID-19. “We did not respond sufficiently last year to address the devastating health crisis at home and failed to engage early to address the crisis beyond our borders.” (Emphasis added.) Actually, it was Trump who did address the crisis “beyond our borders,” when he moved quickly to prevent any entry into the United States of people coming from China, where the virus originated. It was Yellen’s boss, Joe Biden, who criticized Trump as xenophobic for taking this prompt action.

Predictably, Yellen used the COVID-19 pandemic to as justification for globalism: “COVID-19 has clearly shown that pandemic responses require global cooperation.”

Finally, she touted global action on “climate change,” calling it the “biggest long-term threat the world faces.” Claiming that the United States sat “on the sidelines for four years” on this issue, she praised Biden for rejoining the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. “Treasury is working closely with our international partners and international organizations to implement ambitious emissions reduction measures, protect critical ecosystems, build resilience against the impacts of climate change, and promote the flow of capital toward climate-aligned investments and away from carbon-intensive investments,” adding that “finance ministries and central banks will work together to identify mechanisms for promoting green investments and accelerating transition to a zero-net economy.”

What Yellen is saying here is that we need more globalism and government control of the economy to fight climate change, which will require subsidies for things such as solar and wind power, and restrictions on the oil, gas, and coal industries.

Whatever else Yellen is for, it is not limited government and free enterprise. And her boss, President Joe Biden, appears to be in perfect agreement with her.

EPOCH TIMES; AMERICAN THOUGHT LEADERS: KT McFarland-How Communist China Is Exploiting Perceived U.S. Weakness and Becoming More Aggressive

In recent weeks, the Chinese Communist Party has skillfully exploited arguments about race to try to discredit the American system, says former Trump deputy national security adviser KT McFarland. Propaganda and disinformation campaigns are a critical part of the Chinese Communist Party’s strategy of unrestricted warfare against the United States. At the same time, the regime has brought its economic power to bear on those that dare cross the regime. After H&M took a stand against forced labor in Xinjiang, it vanished from Chinese e-commerce stores, ratings apps, and even Apple Maps in China. “China plans to remake the world in its own image,” McFarland says. What should the Biden administration do to protect the United States from CCP aggression? #china #antonyblinken #xinjiang

Pope Francis Calls For “New World Order” As Fauci Pushes “Globalization”

The global elite are using COVID to usher in their one world government

BY KELEN MCBREEN

SEE: https://www.infowars.com/posts/pope-francis-calls-for-new-world-order-as-fauci-pushes-globalization/;

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

Both Pope Francis and Dr. Anthony Fauci are endorsing globalism as an answer to COVID-19, climate change, poverty and other issues.

In an interview with Italian journalist Domenico Agasso, set to be released Tuesday, Pope Francis promotes the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset agenda.

Regarding COVID, the Pope says, “The world will never be the same again. But it is precisely within this calamity that we must grasp those signs which may prove to be the cornerstones of reconstruction. Speeches are not enough to solve emergencies. The pandemic is an alarm signal on which humanity is forced to reflect. This time of trial can thus become a time of wise and far-sighted choices for the good of humanity, of all humanity.”

Pope Francis also calls for “a new model of development” that is more environment-friendly.

He urges the world start this phase as soon as possible, saying, “If we don’t roll up our sleeves and immediately take care of the Earth, with radical personal and political choices, with an economic ‘green’ turn by directing technological developments in this direction, sooner or later our common home will throw us out the window. We cannot waste any more time.”

One way to accomplish this, according to the pontiff, is by “limiting support to companies that are harmful to the environment and to peace.”

This coming from the Vatican, which literally did business with Hitler, Mussolini, and other Axis leaders during and even after WWII.

Again promoting “reconstruction” or a Great Reset, the Pope asks world leaders to “rebuild from the rubble.”

Part of the rebuilding process includes the removal of “social injustice and marginalization.”

Pope Francis explains, “We can heal injustice by building a new world order based on solidarity, studying innovative methods to eradicate bullying, poverty and corruption, all working together, each for their own part, without delegating and passing the buck. Also by working to provide healthcare for all.”

Those who “manufacture and traffic in arms” and engage in crimes against humanity are also condemned by the Pope as he promotes an agenda created by those same groups.

“United in fraternity, humanity is able to face common threats, without any more counterproductive mutual recriminations, instrumentalization of problems, short-sighted nationalism, protectionist propaganda, isolationism and other forms of political selfishness.”

The open call for a “new world order” is interesting for many reasons, one being the mainstream media’s mockery of “conspiracy theorists” who have warned of the planned global government system for decades.

Apparently, the establishment hacks ridiculing people like Alex Jones have never seen George H. W. Bush calling for a NWO, which he did multiple times.


While Pope Francis calls for a new world order, Dr. Anthony Fauci appeared on NBC News with Chuck Todd on Sunday to promote globalism.

Todd told Fauci many people feel that “Due to climate change and due to globalization in general, it’s inevitable, we’re going to deal with more and more viruses like this.”

The NBC host asked, “What’s the biggest lesson you’re going to take away to prepare for the next one?”

Fauci responded “Let’s take global to begin with. We have to have a better global health security network of interconnectivity, of communication, of transparency so we are talking to each other all the time and know what’s going on.”

“So, keep the science up,” he said. “Continue to support the public health infrastructure and remain global in our interactions. As I’ve said so many times, a global pandemic requires a global response.”


Top reasons why not to be afraid of COVID; Lose your fear and engage your brain. Look at the facts and understand the facts do not support the fear and they never have.

Assumptions of the Leftist/Globalist/Woke Explain Absurd Policies

Anonymous Snitch Group to Dox ‘Domestic Terrorist’ Trump Voters

BY DEAN WEINGARTEN

SEE: https://www.ammoland.com/2021/03/assumptions-of-the-leftist-globalist-woke-explain-absurd-policies;

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

U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- To those who support the United States Constitution and the Second Amendment, many propositions put forward by the ruling class do not make any sense.

The United States is/has been the most successful, most prosperous, most powerful, most free, and least racist (with the exception of Affirmative Action) nation on the face of the earth, at least for the last thirty years.  The “poor” in the United State would be upper middle class in most of the rest of the world.

Given this reality, when appraising the proposals of the Leftist/Globalist/Woke establishment, they often seem insane and/or counterproductive.

They seem designed to destroy the United States as founded. They work directly against the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

They appear designed to make the United States disorganized, weak, dependent, fractured, and chaotic.

Here are some examples:

  • Working to disarm the U.S. population, especially of arms which would be effective militia weapons.
  • Claiming being born with a light skin color makes people racist.
  • Demanding oil pipelines, which are safer than trucks or railroads, be stopped (in the United States).
  • Insisting the United States stop using all carbon fuels, while allowing increased use of carbon fuels in China and India.
  • Demanding cities and states which have mismanaged their own economies, be bailed out with trillions of US dollars, taken from other people.
  • Demanding certain crimes not be enforced or punished for certain groups; calling for the abolition of property rights.
  • Promoting American families to have two children or less, while promoting the immigration of millions of people without allegiance to the United States.
  • Asserting there are many different sexes, each of which deserves its own affirmative action program. Sex preference is claimed to be both genetic (unalterable) and a volitional choice, changeable in days or hours. (In Western Civilization)
  • Spending trillions of dollars merely by creating more dollars with a few strokes on a keyboard.
  • Demanding colleges and corporations discriminate against Asian and White students, and in favor of Black and Hispanic students.
  • Insisting that math, reason, and merit, are all racist (in the United States).
  • Claiming that being a patriot makes a person a prime suspect as a terrorist (in the United States).

All of these proposals make sense if you consider assumptions about reality which are common on the Left and among Globalists and the Woke. Not all will share all of these assumptions, but many will share most of them.

Here are some of the assumptions:

  1. Government is an inherently good force. Limitations on government are inherently evil.
  2. Nationalism is the principal cause of war. A global government is the only way to stop war.
  3. The major obstacle to global government is a strong United States.
  4. Christianity and Judaism, especially Christianity and Judaism which place moral limits on sexual acts, are evil and limit human possibility.
  5. There are too many people on the earth. The population of the world must be reduced. (Corollary to the above two: Sex without the possibility of children is a positive. Life without children is a better life.)
  6. The use of carbon-based fuels will lead to the destruction of the Earth, as we know it.
  7. Wealth is a zero-sum game. The only reason some have more is that they took it from others who then have less.
  8. There is no such thing as human nature. Humans are nearly infinitely malleable, given enough control and power by the state.

These assumptions are in direct conflict with the assumptions which lead to the design of the American Constitution and Republic.

Consider what follows from these assumptions about the nature of reality:

Any policy which weakens the United States in comparison to the rest of the world is a positive good.

Hence:

  • Economic policy to place the United States at a disadvantage with the rest of the world is good.
  • Trade policies which are advantageous to other countries, and disadvantageous to the United States, are good.
  • Immigration policy to allow unlimited immigrants, enhance Leftist power, and weaken US institutions, is good.
  • Energy policy to make the United States more vulnerable to the rest of the world is good.
  • Promotion of small families and few children by Americans is good.
  • Denigration of Christianity and Judaism and restriction of churches and synagogues which teach sexual limits, restraint, and morality, is good.
  • Promotion of racial division and sexual balkanization to divide and weaken the United States population and allegiance to the United States is good.
  • Placing trans-gender “rights” above military efficacy, as a military goal.
  • Educational policy to teach the United States is evil, other societies are “better”, in the United States, is good.
  • Educational policy to suppress excellence and merit-based outcomes, in the United States (making the United States less competitive) is good.
  • Educational policy to suppress rational thought and math… in the United States.  Same as above.
  • Educational policy to teach limitation on government power is bad, hence, the Constitution is outdated and must be ignored.
  • Educational policy to erase history. Historical examples place the above assumptions into question.

In the past, such assumptions about reality, and the policies which come from them, would have been considered absurd.

Ruling classes, in any country, had their self-interest tied to the prosperity of the country where they lived.

With a global economy, especially a global digital economy, many of the global wealthy, especially in Western Civilization, no longer feel tied to any one country. They have little restraint from weakening their country in order to gain more wealth and power, even if they owe nominal allegiance to that country.

Countries other than the United States desire the global supremacy the United States currently commands. They have a vested interest in promoting assumptions that can be used to move power and wealth from the United States. They use the desire of the U.S. ruling class for a global government and more wealth to subvert the United States from within.

The United States economy and wealth are the biggest prize on the global stage. They offer the largest opportunities for taking wealth from those who have produced it, and placing it in the hands of powerful groups and individuals who have no allegiance to the United States.

The easiest way to accomplish this transfer of wealth is to gain control of the United States government. The Constitutional structure of the American political system is an obstacle to this control.

Control of the flow of information is a viable tool to overcome that obstacle.

A difficulty with the above assumptions and programs is they directly affect the people of the United States in numerous negative ways.

Those who believe the assumptions and put forward the policies must constantly misinform and propagandize the United States population, so as to make the resulting loss of wealth and power of the United States seem positive, or at least, inevitable.

President Donald Trump presented/presents an obstacle to this transfer of wealth and power from the United States, by placing the welfare of the United States ahead of other governments and the wealthy few, as his first priority.

Policies which place the United States first are not difficult to understand, or even to implement if the political power structure is willing to act in the best interest of the United States. This is why President Trump was so wildly successful with his programs, in spite of the constant opposition from most of the ruling establishment.

President Trump acted more in the interests of the people of the United States than was considered acceptable by the current ruling class, global government enthusiasts, and ambitious other governments. Putting the United States first is directly opposed to the assumptions listed and the policies proposed as a result of those assumptions.

What sort of society is expected by the Leftist/Globalist/Woke who agree with the listed assumptions, who support the listed policies?

It is, in many respects, the society put forward in Aldous Huxley’s novel, “Brave New World”.

In that society, there is no God, but the state. The State controls all of human existence, from before “birth” to death.

The State creates humans for certain tasks. Those humans are constantly kept from critical thought through a combination of meaningless sex and unlimited access to drugs. The words “family”, “mother”, and “father” are considered obscenities.  All children are created in artificial wombs and raised entirely by the state.

Only a powerful few have access to significant resources and an understanding of how the power structure actually works.

The flow of information is carefully controlled and monitored by the state.

Ordinary humans have no control over their own lives, which are crafted, controlled, and monitored by the state.

It is an interesting dystopian vision.

It seems far from any practical reality, although the rapid rise of digital and genomic technology may alter that reality.

Historical precedent suggests the most powerful, well-organized, ruthless, and self-interested group will seize control of the apparatus of a global state, and use it for their own power, wealth, and aggrandizement. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) takeover and use of the World Health Organization (WHO) during the current pandemic comes to mind.

Such ruthlessness in a singular world government will generate opposition, resulting in longstanding uprisings, civil war, unrest, and repression.

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is a strong contender as the group most likely to seize control of a global government. They seem far better organized, disciplined, and ruthless than the Bilderbergs, Trilateral Commission,  Council of Foreign Relations, or similar loosely affiliated groups of wealthy individuals.

The bureaucrats in charge of the European Union do not seem nearly as organized, indoctrinated, and ruthless as the CCP.

The former Soviet Union does not have the population, organization, or economic might, to be a contender.

A unified Islamic Caliphate might be as ruthless, they might have the population; they seem far less capable of central organization and economic development.

None of the eight listed assumptions about the nature of reality need to be true, or even plausible, to be effective. They serve as much as an excuse for taking the desired action, as a rational explanation of human history.

The weakness of this approach to undercut the power and reduce the prosperity of the United States is the necessity of controlling the flow of information to the citizens of the United States.

If Citizens better understand reality, they reject weakening the United States. They reject reducing the prosperity of United State Citizens.

This is what brought about the election of President Trump.

President Trump promised to put American interests, and the American population, first. In spite of enormous opposition from much of the American ruling class, the Left, the Woke, and other countries. He delivered on his promises.

A majority of Americans no longer trust what is presented in the Old Media. Unless those who push to weaken the United States regain control of the information flow, they will need to rely on less satisfactory means to maintain control over the United States Government.

The attempt at regaining control of the flow of information is seen in the censoring, de-platforming, and de-monetizing by the Tech Oligarchs, the old media giants, and the Woke.

About half the country is refusing to follow the direction of our new Tech Overlords.

The attempt to gain permanent control over the government is the basis of the current scheme to make election fraud an even greater feature of National policy. Such policy is put forward in the proposal of HR-1, the bill to nationalize control of ballots and elections by the Left/Globalists/Woke, to duplicate the efforts done in the 2020 elections, as detailed in the bragging Time article.

While the Time article claims everything done by the anti-Trump cabal was “legal”, it would be foolish to believe all the efforts expended to make election fraud easy, cheap, and undetectable, were simply happenstance, and all of the effort to prevent any real examination of the election for fraud was done simply for the sake of appearance.

If HR-1 is defeated, and reasonably fair election reforms are implemented, it is possible a bloodless revolution of the people, such as elected President Trump, will happen in 2022. The powerful in the United States, and in much of the world, are doing everything they can to prevent such an occurrence.

In the United States, they have been in power for so long, at so little cost, they think they can bend the Chinese Communist Party to their will.

They have been so protected, so pampered, so removed from reality, they believe they are immune to economic laws, human nature, and even physical laws.

A missionary friend, who travels widely in the ‘Stans, the Middle East, and the former Soviet Union, tells me the common people there understand reality all too well. They applauded President Trump, and wished for him to be re-elected.

Their tyrannical rulers disagreed…

Global Plot: Left-Wing Leaders Use Migrants and Coronavirus To Seize Power (Video)

Global Plot: Left-Wing Leaders Use Migrants and Coronavirus To Seize Power (Video)

Left-wing Western leaders continue to open their borders to mass migration while imposing harsh coronavirus lockdown measures on their own citizens. Migrants are being used by the left to dilute host cultures, ensure more votes, and consolidate power.

These leaders have chosen to impose no consequences for migrants trying to make their way to liberal-run Western nations. Once illegals break in, leaders use taxpayer money to reward them with food, clothing, shelter, healthcare, and other benefits. All asylum applications are considered and rarely refused.

As left-wing leaders implement these costly measures, their own citizens are economically struggling due to tyrannical coronavirus restrictions imposed on citizens for a virus with a 99.8% survival rate.

Germany

German Chancellor Angela Merkel is using taxpayer money to fly hundreds of Middle Eastern migrants from the Greek Islands to Germany. Meanwhile, the left-wing leader is threatening to close Germany’s borders to European Union member states if stricter uniformed coronavirus “safety” mandates are not implemented across all EU countries.

It seems the “dangerous” virus with a microscopic infection fatality rate has not stopped the relocation of migrants to Germany’s “epidemic areas.” Sadly, migrants are being used by the left to dilute host cultures and ensure votes in order to seize more power.

Merkel is using taxpayer money to reward the illegals with flights, homes, food, and many other free benefits. As she implements these costly measures, German citizens are economically struggling due to Merkel’s tyrannical coronavirus measures.

Since April 2020, over two thousand Migrants have been flown from Greece to Germany alone. Migrants are flown by a taypayer-funded plane to Hanover from Lesbos. In the past several months, the pace of the migrants' “resettlement” has increased. Covid travel restrictions seem not to apply to them. The illegals are now arriving by plane twice a week.

The final week of February saw 277 illegals flown into Germany seeking more taxpayer help. Another 197 were flown in the following week. The majority of the people being implanted into Germany are from the Middle Eastern Islamic countries of Afghanistan, Iran and Iraq. 

The Federal Ministry of the Interior announced this week that two new groups of migrants would be arriving at Hanover Airport. One group consisting of 106 migrants made up of 26 families with 50 adults and 56 minors. Another group consisted of 91 migrants comprising 20 families with 41 adults and 50 minors. Germany has taken hundreds of sick migrant children, along with many unaccompanied minors from Greece. Although, there is some disagreement about whether they are indeed minors or not.

Merkel is distributing the illegals throughout the federal states and cities of Bavaria, Berlin, Hamburg, Hesse, Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate, Saxony, and Schleswig-Holstein.

America

In America, newly installed Democrat President Joe Biden’s new border measures allow illegals to break into America without fear of being detained by the border patrol. Biden is already welcoming 6,000 illegals each day despite the virus. While most of the country remains on lockdown or facing harsh restrictions, illegals are moving freely across our border. As reported at RAIR, Biden is not even testing the illegals for the coronavirus or any other diseases that could harm citizens.

Biden is also not allowing the virus to slow down his plans to welcome 700% more “refugees” from terrorist hot spots around the world through his agenda-driven Refugee Admissions Program. This controversial program to import more Democrat voters was the brainchild of then-Senator Joe Biden. Meanwhile, President Trump lowered the cap for refugee admissions each year of his presidency, dropping them to a record low of 15,000 for 2021.

Just recently at CPAC, President Trump explained how Biden’s open borders policies have triggered a massive flood of illegal immigration into our country”:

European Union

The day Joe Biden was sworn into office as America’s new president Swedish European Union (EU) Commissioner Ylva Johansson delivered a speech celebrating their new open borders alliance. While the Commissioner is forcing member states to accept migrants, she is ramping up coronavirus restrictions for travelers within the bloc of 27 member states.

During the pandemic, Johansson continues to force European Union member states to accept all migrants applications despite their country’s overwhelmed and financially depleted systems:

“Rejections are illegal. Not everyone has the right to asylum, but everyone has the right to be treated in line with our values. When people apply for asylum in the EU, they appeal to European values. And we must honour that appeal”

Johansson told Swedish news agency TT she does not believe closing countries’ border helps secure a nation, but nations should instead enhance their “digital security”:

I do not believe that either the security threats or the pandemic threats today can be met in any effective way with closed borders. Rather, it is about the need to better protect ourselves digitally. This is where we can be incredibly much more efficient within the EU.

Johansson and the European political elite have gone to great lengths to conceal the devastating effects of their suicidal immigration policies that are transforming Europe. From arresting migration critics to lying and concealing the links between migration and crime/terrorism, to labeling those concerned about the financial effects of millions of migrants as right-wing extremists or racist and “xenophobic”.

Spain

In Spain, the socialist-led government has imposed strict lockdown measures as it is mandating coronavirus “vaccinations” in one region and registers the name of citizens who refuse the injection. Spain has reported they will share the list of vaccine refusers with all EU member states. Meanwhile, the arrival of illegals to Spain, many who are infected with the coronavirus, has skyrocketed over the past year. The migrants are regularly escaping quarantine or are confined for a short period by the government and then released into the Spanish public.

Italy

In Lampedusa, Italy, throughout the pandemic, landings of illegal migrants have reached epidemic proportions – many infected with the Chinese coronavirus. Hundreds of illegal immigrants mainly from Bangladesh, Tunisia, Morocco, and the Ivory Coast, arrived day after day.

Residents in Lampedusa express their fear and people are exasperated, “We are afraid” declared a community member. “It is like this every day, the risk of contracting Covid-19” is once again a threat because of the arrival of the illegal migrants. Despite the community’s cries for help, the government continued to allow their shores to be invaded by criminals while only imposing stricter lockdown measures on citizens of Italy.

Meanwhile, Italy served as the launch-pad for tyrannical coronavirus mandates. The coronavirus crisis is offering Italy’s leaders a convenient pretext to silence critics and consolidate power. Any doctor or critic who has gotten in their way and refuses to fall in line is being canceled.

CanadaFranceBelgiumBosnia and HerzegovinaNetherlands, and many other left-wing-run nations are imposing tyrannical lockdown measures and regulations on their own citizens while flooding their countries with illegals during the pandemic.

Western leaders have capitalized on the pandemic to seize more power and control. Instead of closing their countries’ borders, these leaders have rewarded human traffickers, NGO’s and migrants. Their illegal behavior in the Mediterranean and across Central America goes unabated. Meanwhile, they have kept citizens locked in their homes like criminals and used taxpayer money to import left-wing voters.

Pope meets Ayatollah Sistani in Iraq, repeats the usual comforting fictions about Islam

Church Militant asked me for comment about this meeting this morning, and I sent them this: “A genuine interfaith meeting at the “Birthplace of Abraham” would have included representatives of all three Abrahamic religions. But the Jewish representatives who were invited reportedly refused to attend. As the Qur’an is deeply antisemitic and calls Jews the worst enemies of Muslims (5:82), under the curse of Allah (9:30), and calls on Muslims to make war against and subjugate them (9:29), it is likely that the Jewish leaders did not believe they would be safe or respected there, which would have been a more realistic view of Islam than the one Francis has. In the same way, there was no mention of Isaac, because in Islamic tradition, Ishmael is the sacrificial son, and so the Pope was apparently all too willing to go along with the devaluation of the tradition shared by Jews and Christians in favor of the Islamic understanding. The readings were from Genesis and from the Qur’an’s Sura Ibrahim, that is, sura 14. It would have been more illuminating and instructive if Qur’an 60:4 had been read. At that point, Abraham tells his unbelieving family that there will be enmity and hatred between him and them forever unless they worship Allah, and he is presented as a model for imitation in doing this. And of course, Jesus was not mentioned, for as always, “Muslim-Christian dialogue” means that Christians move closer to the Islamic position, not any genuine give-and-take or mutuality.

“Hostility, extremism and violence are not born of a religious heart: they are betrayals of religion,” said the Pope. As I told Church Militant, the Pope clings to and repeats the popular fiction that Islamic jihad terrorism arises from a misunderstanding of Islam. Indeed, he can’t even go that far; instead, he says that terrorist acts are “betrayals of religion,” as if there were Christian terrorists in numbers comparable to Islamic terrorists worldwide. His ignoring of the Qur’an’s exhortations to violence against unbelievers doesn’t have the remotest chance of compelling jihadis to give up that violence. All it does is foster complacency and ignorance in Christians.

“For Iraq’s dwindling Christian minority, a show of solidarity from al-Sistani could help secure their place in Iraq after years of displacement — and, they hope, ease intimidation from Shiite militiamen against their community.”

Muslim-Christian dialogue has so far not prevented even one Christian from being persecuted. Maybe this time it will be different, eh?

“Pope, top Iraq Shiite cleric hold historic, symbolic meeting,” by Nicole Winfield and Qassim Abdul-Zahra, Associated Press, March 6, 2021:

PLAINS OF UR, Iraq (AP) — Pope Francis and Iraq’s top Shiite cleric delivered a powerful message of peaceful coexistence Saturday, urging Muslims in the war-weary Arab nation to embrace Iraq’s long-beleaguered Christian minority during an historic meeting in the holy city of Najaf.

Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani said religious authorities have a role in protecting Iraq’s Christians, and that Christians should live in peace and enjoy the same rights as other Iraqis. The Vatican said Francis thanked al-Sistani for having “raised his voice in defense of the weakest and most persecuted” during some of the most violent times in Iraq’s recent history.

Al-Sistani, 90, is one of the most senior clerics in Shiite Islam and his rare but powerful political interventions have helped shape present-day Iraq. He is a deeply revered figure in Shiite-majority Iraq and his opinions on religious and other matters are sought by Shiites worldwide.

The historic meeting in al-Sistani’s humble home was months in the making, with every detail painstakingly discussed and negotiated between the ayatollah’s office and the Vatican.

Early Saturday, the 84-year-old pontiff, travelling in a bullet-proof Mercedes-Benz, pulled up along Najaf’s narrow and column-lined Rasool Street, which culminates at the golden-domed Imam Ali Shrine, one of the most revered sites in Shiite Islam. He then walked the few meters (yards) to al-Sistani’s modest home, which the cleric has rented for decades….

The official said al-Sistani, who normally remains seated for visitors, stood to greet Francis at the door of his room — a rare honor. Al-Sistani and Francis sat close to one another, without masks. Al-Sistani, who rarely appears in public — even on television — wore black robes and a black turban, in simple contrast to Francis’ all-white cassock….

The pope arrived later in the ancient city of Ur for an interfaith meeting in the traditional birthplace of Abraham, the biblical patriarch revered by Christians, Muslims and Jews.

“From this place, where faith was born, from the land of our father Abraham, let us affirm that God is merciful and that the greatest blasphemy is to profane his name by hating our brothers and sisters,” Francis said. “Hostility, extremism and violence are not born of a religious heart: they are betrayals of religion.”…

The Vatican said Iraqi Jews were invited to the event but did not attend, without providing further details. Iraq’s ancient Jewish community was decimated in the 20th century by violence and mass emigration fueled by the Arab-Israeli conflict, and only a handful remain….

The Vatican said the historic visit to al-Sistani was a chance for Francis to emphasize the need for collaboration and friendship between different religious communities.

In a statement issued by his office after the meeting, al-Sistani affirmed that Christians should “live like all Iraqis, in security and peace and with full constitutional rights.” He pointed out the “role that the religious authority plays in protecting them, and others who have also suffered injustice and harm in the events of past years.”

Al-Sistani wished Francis and the followers of the Catholic Church happiness, and thanked him for taking the trouble to visit him in Najaf, the statement said.

For Iraq’s dwindling Christian minority, a show of solidarity from al-Sistani could help secure their place in Iraq after years of displacement — and, they hope, ease intimidation from Shiite militiamen against their community….

Pope Francis Warns of Another Great Flood Due to Global Warming

COMMUNIST POPE FRANCIS DENIES THE WORD OF GOD IN ORDER TO BE POLITICALLY CORRECT & IN LINE WITH THE GLOBALIST, SOCIALIST AGENDA

The Pope Has Totally Lost His Mind and Gone Full Political

BY JAMES MURPHY

SEE: https://thenewamerican.com/pope-francis-warns-of-another-great-flood-due-to-global-warming/;

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

Pope Francis is warning that the Earth could be facing a second great flood — similar to the one that Noah and his family faced — should planetary leaders not quickly address “injustice” and the scourge of anthropogenic global warming. The pontiff made the remarks in a new book titled Of Vices and Virtues by Don Marco Pozza, the chaplain of the Padua prison.

The book — basically a book-length interview with Pope Francis — was released on March 2 in Italian by Rizzoli Publishers. An excerpt was published on Sunday in Corriere Della Sera, an Italian newspaper.

“A great deluge, perhaps due to a rise in temperature and the melting of the glaciers: what will happen now if we continue on the same path,” Pope Francis said.

The Pope made the remark while speaking on the much broader topic of God’s wrath against evil and injustice.

“God’s wrath is against injustice, against Satan. It is directed against evil, not that which derives from human weakness, but evil of Satanic inspiration: the corruption generated by Satan, behind which single men, single women, entire societies go. God’s wrath is meant to bring justice, ‘clean up,’” the 84-year-old Francis said.

“The flood is a result of God’s wrath,” the Pope continued. “He is a figure of God’s wrath, who according to the Bible has seen too many bad things and decides to obliterate humanity. The biblical [flood], according to experts, is a mythical tale. (Now I hope someone doesn’t argue that the Pope said the Bible is a myth!) But myth is a form of knowledge. The flood is a historical tale, archaeologists say, because they found traces of a flood in their excavations.”

“The story of Noah shows that God’s wrath is also a savior,” Francis concluded.

The excerpt also included Francis’s thoughts on prudence in government, saying that “prudence is an essential virtue for those who govern.” The Pope also spoke about faith and doubt in the lives of Christians.

The release of these papal remarks comes in advance of the Pope’s visit to Iraq this week. It is the first papal visit to any country since the COVID-19 pandemic began and is believed to be the first visit by any pope to a Middle Eastern country besides Israel.

It is hoped that the visit will bolster the Christian population of the region, which had suffered so terribly under ISIS rule. Christians still find themselves under attack by Islamic extremists in the region.

The trip will include a meeting between Francis and the Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, the spiritual leader of Iraqi Shia Muslims. Open Doors, which maintains a world watchlist of Christian persecution, currently lists Iraq as the 11th most dangerous country for Christians.

Hopefully, the Pope can use his influence to make some inroads in Iraq about the treatment of Christians there.

But he may wish to study the Great Flood a little more.

Pope Francis describes the evil events preceding the flood accurately enough. Genesis 6:5 says, “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thought of his heart was only evil continually.”

We all know the story. Noah alone was found righteous by God; the ark was built and the flood destroyed everything but Noah, his family, and the animals on the Ark. God’s wrath fulfilled, just as Francis described.

But there was more to it than that. After the flood receded and Noah and his family got to work rebuilding the world, God made a covenant with Noah and his descendants. Among God’s promises: “And I will establish my covenant with you, neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there be any more a flood to destroy the earth.” — Genesis 9:11.

Is Pope Francis calling God a liar? Doesn’t the leader of the Catholic Church believe that God will keep His word?

In times past, the question, “Is the Pope Catholic?” has been a sarcastic reply to a question for which the answer is an obvious “yes.” However, Pope Francis’ many unorthodox views and expressions of support for “progressive” policies that are at variance with Catholic teaching — on communism, socialism, capitalism, Islam, immigration, radical environmentalism, “gay marriage,” divorce, pagan worship, etc. — have many conservative and traditional Catholics seriously asking, “Is the Pope Catholic?”

Vatican conference to promote Mary as ‘model for faith and life for Christianity and Islam’

Vatican Conference to Promote Mary as ‘a Jewish, Christian and Muslim Woman’

'Belonging to these three religious and multi-cultural worlds (Judaism, Christianity, Islam), the figure of Mary is in itself a pressing and constant invitation to intersect and interconnect these same worlds'

Does the Vatican really think that this will increase harmony and mutual respect between Muslims and Christians? Vatican top dogs should consider a statement of the Muslim Brotherhood theorist Sayyid Qutb: “The chasm between Islam and Jahiliyyah [the society of unbelievers] is great, and a bridge is not to be built across it so that the people on the two sides may mix with each other, but only so that the people of Jahiliyyah may come over to Islam.” Dialogue, in other words, is all too often for the Islamic side a means of dawah, Islamic proselytizing, not a genuine discussion. In the Qur’an, the Virgin Mary gives birth to Jesus, but it is stated that he is not the Son of God (19:35), not divine (5:17), and was not crucified (4:157), and thus could not be and is not the savior and redeemer of the world. Do these Vatican officials really think that their Muslim interlocutors will discard what the Qur’an tells them and move closer to the Christian view? Or are they discarding the Christian view of Mary (and hence of Jesus) themselves, so as not to offend their “dialogue” partners? Almost certainly.

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

“Vatican to organize conference promoting Mary as ‘model for faith’ for both Christianity and Islam,” by Jeanne Smits, LifeSite News, February 16, 2021:

February 16, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — “Mary, a model for faith and life for Christianity and Islam:” is the title of an upcoming series of online webinars presenting Our Lady as a bridge between Catholicism and Islam organized, among others, by the Pontifical Academy of Mary (Pontificia Academia Mariana Internationalis or PAMI).

Starting on February 18, ten weekly conferences will be given jointly by Catholic and Muslim speakers who will seek “dialogue, knowledge and cooperation” regarding themes such as “Mary, a woman of faith,” “God who is love and faith,” prayer, purity, hospitality and non-violence, fasting and penitence, fraternity and citizenship.

The Franciscan pontifical University of Rome, the “Antonianum,” is another co-organizer of the event through its Duns Scot Chair of Mariological Studies as well as the International Islamic-Christian Marian Commission and the Grand Mosque of Rome and its Islamic Cultural Center of Italy.

The Italian weekly Famiglia Christiana presented the event in the light of the Abu Dhabi declaration, illustrating its article on Saturday with a photo of Pope Francis signing the Human Fraternity Document together with Imam al-Tayyeb of the Al-Azhar University of Cairo.

Quoting at length from the Document, Gian Matteo Roggio commented: “The course of these webinars is therefore aimed at active, free, conscious, solidary and popular participation in the opening of this space of intersection, interconnection, hospitable reception, thus meeting the explicit requests of Pope Francis and the Grand Imam of Al-Azahr, the noble Sheikh Ahmad Al-Tayyeb.”

Readers of Famiglia Christiana in Italy are being asked to believe this: “The figure of Mary, a Jewish, Christian and Muslim woman, belongs by right and by fact to the path, the processes and the experiences that contribute to the generation of such an educational path, which makes a positive and confident wager on the embrace between generations and on a new politics and economy, where countries do not need to build their identity on contempt and on systematic negation, whether overt or covert, of the other and of others: an identity, that is, at the expense of the dissimilar and ready to identify in the other the cause of all the ills, failures, limitations and problems that instead have their multiple causes elsewhere. Belonging to these three religious and multi-cultural worlds (Judaism, Christianity, Islam), the figure of Mary is in itself a pressing and constant invitation to intersect and interconnect these same worlds, even making them a model of plural coexistence where the boundaries of each are made to allow communication, passage, exchange; and not to be closed, according to the many figures of exclusion that have, as their fruit, the culture, psychology, politics and economics of war, hatred and inhumanity.”

In the same grandiloquent style, Roggio added: “The webinars will end during the month of Ramadan with ‘the dates of Mary’ in the Conference Hall of the Great Mosque of Rome (health situation permitting): in memory of what is stated in the Holy Quran (Sura 19,22-26), namely that after giving birth near the trunk of a palm tree, she was called by the newborn child who told her ‘Do not be sad […] shake the trunk of the palm tree towards you and it will drop fresh and ripe dates on you. So eat them,’ a meal of friendship and fraternity will be shared once the sun goes down, as a tangible pact of alliance for the service to the common good of all, no one excluded, in obedience to the ‘understanding of the great divine grace that makes all human beings brothers’ (Document on human brotherhood for world peace and common coexistence).”

Roggio, the author of these very pro-Islamic lines, is not simply a journalist, he is a member of the religious order, the Missionaries of Our Lady of La Salette. He studied Mariology at the Pontifical Academy of Mary and is now a professor at the same institution. Roggio will be giving the lecture on “God who is love and mercy” on February 25, together with Islamic theologian Shahrzad Houshmand Zadeh, who teaches at the Gregoriana Pontifical University.

Roggio’s words therefore clearly express the spirit of the coming Islamo-Christian webinars: a spirit of profound relativism and misleading equation between the Catholic faith and Muslim beliefs.

The real question is this one: is the Virgin Mary whom we Catholics honor as the Mother of Jesus, only Son of God and the Word Incarnate, the same person as the woman named “Miriam” by the Quran? Is her son, Îssa, the Quranic equivalent of Jesus? He would then be a “Jesus” who could not in any way be the Son of God, because, the Quran proclaims, such an idea is “something monstrous” and that “it is not fitting for the Most Merciful to have a son.”…
