SARAH CORRIHER: Watch “Jonathan Pentland Is a Hero” on YouTube & OTHER VIDEO PLATFORMS

Fort Jackson, S.C. Drill Instructor Jonathan Pentland 

Stops Black Man Accused of Sexual Abuse of a Woman, Kidnapping of a Baby;

Gets Charged with third-degree assault and battery by Sheriff, Calls Pentland a Bully; All Due to Fake News Reports:

In our world of pathologically woke media outlets, black men are said to be hunted as they walk too close to white neighborhoods. The media recently tried to destroy the life of Jonathan Pentland, in a new narrative that labeled him as an evil racist who assaults innocent black men. The truth is that Jonathan is actually a hero of his neighborhood, who was protecting it from a predator who had recently engaged in kidnapping, sexual assault, and animal cruelty to name a few. As should be expected, the rapey kidnapper was the media's darling whom it fawned over. He was the black guy, after all. The "white supremacy" narrative must be maintained.

12-Year-Old Gets Social Justice Stabbing by Black Man at a McDonalds


While waiting in line at a McDonald's, a 12-year-old white boy was stabbed in the neck and tackled by a black man, who was calling him a "White Devil" (among other things). His family and a couple of good Samaritans were able to subdue the knife-wielding attacker before the young boy was killed. Then, as expected, the media went mute; even completely ignoring the racist slurs by the attacker which preceded the attack. There were no grandstanding race-baiters on TV, no marches in the streets, nor were there calls to change anything. Dutifully following the program, the media simply went silent, as it anxiously awaits an act of violence that actually matches the politically correct narrative about race and violence. Once again, Fox News participated in the cover-up as well.

Pittsburgh Man Arrested After Stabbing 12 Year Old Boy In The Neck At McDonald’s!

In a shocking incident, a 12-year-old boy who went out with his family to enjoy a McDonald’s meal in downtown Pittsburgh, was stabbed in the neck by a stranger from behind. The attacked child was rushed to the hospital immediately after the incident on Saturday, March 20, 2021. Soon police arrested 51-year-old Charles Edward Turner as the prime suspect, who reportedly went back inside the restaurant to ‘finish his coffee’ after stabbing the child.


Biden Political Operative Blocks Ted Cruz From Filming Illegals in Detention Facilities

Senator Ted Cruz has released a video he says shows a Biden administration staffer clashing with him at a border facility and trying to prevent him from filming – telling the Republican “this is not a zoo, sir”. Senator Cruz said the facility he filmed in Donna, Texas, was a “giant tent city”. He and eighteen of his colleagues visited the border to see for themselves the unfolding humanitarian crisis. “We went and toured the Biden cages, you know for four years we heard Democrats and the media talking about kids in cages under president Trump, Joe Biden has built more cages, the cages are bigger and they’re more full,” he said. In the video Senator Cruz shared, the staffer quickly jumped in the frame after he began filming. “Please give dignity to the people,” the staffer said. “So you work for the commissioner, you’re a senior adviser, you were hired two weeks ago and you’re instructed to ask us to not have any pictures taken here because the political leadership at DHS does not want the American people to know it,” Senator Cruz said. “Please respect the rules,” the staffer said. “You keep standing in front of the picture, so you don’t want the pictures taken, the rules are arbitrary, and they’re designed to keep the American people in the dark,” Senator Cruz said. Senator Cruz told Fox News the children in the Donna facility were testing positive for COVID-19 at “roughly” a 10 per cent rate. “They’re locking them in these cages where COVID in a pandemic is a real risk, it is inhumane, it is unconscionable, and it’s the direct result of the political decisions that Joe Biden has made,” he said. “It's massive, it's designed to hold a thousand people but under COVID restrictions, its capacity is 250. “It right now has over 4,000 people in it, it is at a 1,500 percent capacity and that meant you saw in these cages children, little boys and little girls, side by side, they're not six-feet apart, they’re not even six inches apart.”

A political operative of the Biden Administration attempted to stop Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) from documenting the squalid conditions inside a crowded illegal immigrant detention facility in South Texas.

On Sunday, Cruz uploaded video of a woman blocking him filming as he tried to show the American people the inside of an overflowing detention center in Donna, Texas.

As Cruz attempted to film, a woman approached him to obstruct the camera view and telling him to “Please give dignity to the people.”

“This is not a zoo, sir,” the woman at one point tells Cruz, to which he responds, “You’re right and this is a dangerous place and your policies unfortunately are trying to hide them.”

Cruz, who was attempting to show hundreds of illegals wrapped in mylar blankets sleeping on floors inside the makeshift tent facilities, appears to be familiar with the woman.

“So you work for the commissioner,” Cruz tells her, “you’re a senior adviser, you were hired two weeks ago, and you’re instructed to ask us to not have any pictures taken here because the political leadership at DHS does not want the American people to know it.”

The outrageous video comes as Cruz called on the Biden administration to grant the media access to the facilities so Americans can see firsthand the out-of-control humanitarian crisis at the border.

“We understand the heartbreaking tragedy unfolding at the border because we were there. We saw it,” Cruz stated. “But the American people are unable to see it because you remain intent on keeping the media from shining a light on your administration’s failures.”

“This is outrageous. The Trump administration allowed media into DHS facilities. So did the Obama administration, the Bush administration and the Clinton administration. But you want to hide what is going on.”

Biden during a press conference Thursday suggested media access could be forthcoming, saying “I will commit to transparency, and – as soon as I am in a position to be able to implement what we are doing right now.”

Cruz’s letter says on Friday, however, reporters were still not allowed inside the Donna facility.

“They could not show the American people cages after cages of little boys lying side-by-side, of little girls lying side-by-side, covered with reflective emergency blankets with virtually no space between them,” Cruz says. “They could not see the playpen of infants and toddlers brought here by human traffickers and then left alone. They could not see the row of children who, having just been crammed into the crowded cages, were now testing positive for COVID-19.”

Biden Tries to Hide an Obvious Crisis at Border~Former DHS Chief Chad Wolf: Perverse Incentives Fueling Border Crisis



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

The full-blown humanitarian crisis on the southern border ultimately could threaten the safety and security of every single American. The Biden administration has failed to properly acknowledge the severity of the situation and seemingly is in total denial of just how dire the circumstances are.

Even more alarming, President Joe Biden has imposed a gag order on U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents, instructing the agency’s press officers to deny all ride-along requests and refer all questions—even from local reporters—to Washington for approval.

The Biden administration is trying to hide and impose censorship on the border crisis that everyone already knows is underway. In the past month alone, nearly 100,000 illegal immigrants have attempted to unlawfully enter our nation.

It’s clear that the administration’s slew of executive actions and policies have incentivized this illegal behavior, leading to an extreme uptick of criminal crossings. According to Customs and Border Protection, migrant encounters along the southern border are up 28% since January and up 173% since this time last year.

Keep in mind, these migrants aren’t adults only but also children and family units. Customs and Border Protection expects about 13,000 unaccompanied migrant children to reach the border by May and 117,000 by the end of the year. Apprehensions of family units are up 317% since last February.

Nearly one-third of migrants have been affected by human trafficking or other exploitative practices along their route. Some migrant women have shared that, as The New York Times reported, “sexual violence has become an inescapable part of the collective migrant journey.”

The rush we are seeing to cross the Rio Grande is a direct result of the Biden administration’s efforts to weaken border security, virtually eliminate enforcement of U.S. immigration laws, put a moratorium on deportations, and promise amnesty to undocumented immigrants residing in the country illegally. 

The administration also put a stop to the construction of the border wall, reinstated “catch and release,” and tied the hands of immigration enforcement officers.

The Biden administration recently awarded $86 million to cover hotel costs for migrants at the border in Texas and Arizona. These migrants are entering our country illegally, but instead of being sent back, they are greeted with hotel accommodations. That’s just plain wrong.

We also know that drug cartels actively are exploiting the administration’s dismal immigration stance to cross our southern border. Nationwide, drug seizures increased 50% in February from a month earlier.

Several known terrorists, or others reasonably suspected of terrorism, are capitalizing on this influx of migrants to fly under the radar and infiltrate our nation through our porous borders.

Without question, the Biden administration has failed to be transparent about the problem or even acknowledge that it is a crisis. Despite this, the administration deployed the Federal Emergency Management Agency—which coordinates the response to disasters in the U.S. and is another part of the Department of Homeland Security—to assist in handling this surge in migrants. If that doesn’t constitute a crisis, what does? 

The administration’s immigration policies are in fact a disaster, and they have failed monumentally as this crisis has developed.  

It’s deeply concerning that House Democrats’ answer to this growing problem has been to pass two bills that will further incentivize and reward illegal immigration with amnesty. 

To be clear: Whether Democrats like it or not, this is a full-blown national security and humanitarian emergency.

Our country cannot afford politically motivated policies that make our borders less secure, fail to uphold the rule of law, and damage public health.

But those are exactly the kind of policies President Biden has enacted since Day One of his presidency, and they have accelerated the crisis at the southern border dangerously. We need an immigration policy that prioritizes securing the border and protecting the health and safety of Americans first.

'Whatever You Do, We're Coming': Coyotes Heckle Senators at the Border



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

Eighteen Republican senators decided to see for themselves what was happening at the border so they took a little excursion to Texas, visiting several border facilities run by the Border Patrol.

The trip to the border became necessary because the Biden administration has imposed a near-total news blackout on what’s happening there. The administration flunkie who was escorting the senators even asked that the lawmakers delete any pictures, a request echoed by border officials. Not surprisingly, the GOP senators refused to comply.

Indiana Senator Mike Braun described some of what he saw.

Washington Examiner:

Those photos showed children as young as 3 years old jammed into the facilities that Braun described as the worst situation for migrants in 20 years. He earlier provided Secrets with a video of migrants being held by the dozens under a bridge.

In a debriefing of the tour, Braun said that one of the first stops was with border agents at the edge of the Rio Grande, where illegal immigrants typically cross. There, he said, the “coyotes,” who charge $4,000 to $20,000 to get migrants across, heckled the group in Spanish.

“All of a sudden to hear from the other side of the river taunting from the smugglers and coyotes, most of it in Spanish, telling the border guards that ‘whatever you do, we’re coming,’” said Braun. “That kind of hit home in such an anecdotal way because it is one story that kind of is a metaphor for what’s happening all up and down the border,” he added.

“A big welcome sign was put out,” said Braun. “I think it was a political blunder.”

Sen. Ted Cruz describes seeing “cage after cage after cage” of children.

The Biden administration has made a big show of telling would-be migrants to stay away—that the law is the law and they will be deported if they showed up at the border. But the reality is far different.

CBS News:

U.S. agents in south Texas are not expelling Central American families with children younger than seven years of age to Mexico, according to a senior Border Patrol official who requested anonymity during a call with reporters Friday. Some of the migrant families encountered in south Texas are being flown to other Border Patrol sectors, like El Paso, and sent to Mexico from there, the official confirmed.

“We’re still leveraging Title 42 in other areas,” the Border Patrol official said, referring to the expulsions policy, which was first authorized by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in March 2020.

Mr. Biden and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials have said that while they would like to expel most Central American families to Mexico under the Title 42 public health authority, Mexican authorities in the state of Tamaulipas, across from the Rio Grande Valley, are not accepting young children traveling with parents.

According to the Customs and Border Patrol, 86 percent of families processed at the border have been allowed into the U.S without being deported. There were 6,000 apprehensions at the border on Thursday and virtually none of the migrants were sent back.

Biden looked into the cameras during his press conference and said “nothing has changed” at the border. That was a lie. He said most people were being deported. That was a lie. He said the surge in unaccompanied minors at the border is normal. He lied. He’s allowing the release of illegal aliens into the country without giving them a court date. And he’s allowing unvetted sponsors to take children from border facilities.

Biden is getting away with his lies because, in addition to the media being in his pocket, he’s preventing any bad news from leaking out by muzzling the press.

Biden can improve the situation immensely by reimposing some Trump-era policies. But he’d better do it quickly. If the border isn’t already out of control, it soon will be.

Pushing the Boulder Jihad Into Invisibility

Why the Left is so callous towards the victims of Jihad and Sharia.



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

Editors’ note: As we witness U.S. authorities and the establishment media trying to de-Islamize the Jihad in Boulder and to obscure the fact that the Jihadist perpetrator, Ahmad Al Issa, is a Muslim migrant ISIS sympathizer, some vital questions confront us: why does the Left consistently engage in Jihad Denial? Why is it so invested in denying the Islamic roots of Islamic Jihad?

This is, without doubt, one of the most pertinent questions of our time, especially now with the Boulder Jihad -- and its tragic victims -- hovering right before our very eyes. Frontpage Mag editors have therefore deemed it vital to run, below, an excerpt from Jamie Glazov’s book, Jihadist Psychopath: How He is Charming, Seducing, and Devouring Us.

The excerpt, which is Chapter 4 of the book ('Jihad Denial'), explains why the Left must push Jihad into invisibility -- and why it is so callous towards the victims of Jihad and Sharia.

This documentation equips us with the understanding of why Jihadists like Ahmad Al Issa are able to sow the destruction that they do today -- and so easily. It also sets the foundation for our insight into why exactly the Left practices Jihad Denial -- and what all the specious ingredients of that denial entail. These facts will all be unveiled in several published segments of Jihadist Psychopath in our forthcoming issues of Frontpage Mag.

Don't miss this essay below.

[To read the chapter on what the Left actually is -- and why it aids and abets Jihad -- read Utopian VirusHERE. The Virus in Power, meanwhile, explores how the Left took power in America -- and why it had such an easy time doing so. Read it: HERE. The introduction crystallizes the general nature of Jihad Denial: HERE -- while Chapter 1 details the Obama administration's horrific record of trying to hide and camouflage the true sources of Islamic terror: HERE.]


Jihad Denial

The Left’s war on its own host democratic society is greatly enabled by its consistent and focused empowerment of that society’s enemies. As explained earlier, this is precisely why the Left sided with communism during the Cold War and why, today, it works collaboratively with Islamic supremacism within the Unholy Alliance in the terror war.1 Islamic supremacism has simply replaced communism as the Left’s ally against America and the West over the course of the past quarter-century.

The Left well understands that in order to facilitate Islamic supremacism’s assault on our society, it must suppress the ugly, discomfiting truth about this fascistic ideology and movement. Doing so is completely natural for the Left, which has routinely turned a blind eye to evil and to undesirable elements within adversary cultures, ideologies and religions for decades. When Western citizens recognize an ugly truth about an enemy society, it poses a tremendous danger to the Left because (1) the conclusion can be reached that Western society is better and, therefore, worth protecting and defending; (2) the nature of the actual threat the enemy poses and a way to counter that threat can be discerned; and (3) the importance of preventing adherents of the enemy ideology from coming to live on the host society’s terrain becomes plainly evident.

All of the above realizations are anathema to progressives, whose entire mission falls into ruins if citizens of their host society understand the evil of an adversarial system. The Left’s goal of destroying its own society, and of constructing upon its ruins a utopia of perfect integration, equality and sameness, simply crumbles if people take concrete steps to defend their own society from the enemy -- which includes recognizing the destructiveness of immigration and refugee policies designed to import hostile populations.

Thus, we begin to understand why the Left is so unsympathetic to the victims of Jihad and Sharia -- and why it consistently pushes them into invisibility. Their reality and suffering is bad news for the Left. When people witness the horrific ordeal of human beings tortured and murdered by the adherents of Islamic supremacism, they begin to see Islam for what it is. The Left is determined to stop this from happening, since its agenda cannot succeed if people understand the truth about the threat that they face. This is exactly why the Left engaged in Gulag Denial throughout the Cold War; denying the monstrous evils of communism was crucial for the Left’s war on its own host society, and for its effort to help communists conquer that society.2

And so we have Jihad Denial -- the Left’s vehement effort to silence those who dare to tell the truth about Islamic supremacism. The Left has to keep Jihad Denial alive and healthy, so that its plan of building its Tower of Babel on the ashes of its host society can move forward.Most important for the Left is the tactic of disconnecting Islam from Islamic terrorism. As has been shown in Chapter 1, and as will be documented further in the ensuing chapters, the Left has succeeded brilliantly in this effort. Indeed, while controlling the culture and framing the national discourse on this issue, the Left has arrogated the moral high-ground to itself when engaging in Jihad Denial, posturing as though it is working toward a society of social justice and fairness, while it paints all Muslims as victims of Western transgressions -- even during the height of an age that is replete with Islamic terrorism.

Any person, meanwhile, who dares to whisper any sobering truth about Islam is now immediately shamed and dehumanized. Labelled a racist, bigot and “Islamophobe” who supposedly hates all Muslim people and thinks that all Muslims are terrorists, this individual is caricatured as a mouthpiece of “hate speech” and an inciter of violence against Muslims. He is regarded as someone who needs to be silenced and, ideally, criminalized.4

One transparent example of this atrocious distortion that comes with Jihad Denial is the case of leading counter-jihadist Pamela Geller and the slanders leveled against her. Geller is perpetually cast by the Unholy Alliance as an “Islamophobe” and a “Muslim hater,”5 when in fact she is a noble humanitarian who is motivated not just by the desire to defend Western freedom, but also by an impulse to protect Muslim people themselves -- especially Muslim women and young girls who suffer under the vicious barbarities of Islamic gender apartheid. Geller has, for instance, done more on behalf of Muslim women than have any of her slanderers. Emblematic of her efforts was her fight on behalf of Aqsa Parvez, a 16-year-old Muslim girl who was murdered by her Muslim father and brother in an honor killing in Toronto, in 2007. Geller brought attention to Aqsa’s case and had a memorial grove successfully built in the girl’s memory in Israel -- after Aqsa’s family and other Unholy Alliance forces had made it impossible for Geller to do so in Ontario.6

Geller’s valiant efforts to bring attention to Aqsa’s fate were part of her overall campaign to shine a light on the shameful practice of honor killings and on the suffering of all Muslim women under Islam in general. Such efforts are symbolized by the page on Geller’s website titled “Honor Killings Grow in the West: Islam’s Gruesome Gallery,” which documents horrific cases in which Muslim women were subjected to honor killings and acid attacks.7 It is worth noting that the members of the Unholy Alliance who smear Geller are the ones who are actually engaged in the hatred of Muslim people, since their assault on this counter-jihadist inevitably exonerates the Islamic ideology that inspires and sanctions the oppression of Muslims themselves -- and leaves millions of them helplessly ensnared by the shackles of Sharia. When the Unholy Alliance demonizes Geller, it actually exacerbates the suffering of Muslim people and depicts them as inferior, since it lowers expectations of how Muslims should treat each other and non-Muslims. This way of thinking holds Western societies to a higher standard of moral accountability, which confers an implied civilizational superiority on these societies and civilizational inferiority on Muslim societies. This is a dark form of leftist bigotry that is, with a few exceptions, never discussed in our media and culture.8

The Left used all of these same dirty tactics during the Cold War as well, labelling any conservative who tried to oppose communist aggression and infiltration as a “fascist,” “McCarthyite” and “Red-Baiter” (among other terms) -- while making victims and martyrs out of many traitors who were in league with the communist enemy (i.e. the Rosenbergs, Alger Hiss etc.).9

Jihad Denial, therefore, is a powerful mechanism through which the Left advances its malicious goals. It assists the Left, for instance, in bringing Islamic supremacist populations to Western shores through Hijrah -- the process of Jihad-by-immigration.10 By importing masses of people who hate America and seek to destroy its way of life, the Left succeeds in severely damaging the United States and making it more vulnerable to attack. This explains why President Obama worked so hard to flood the U.S. with Muslim refugees11 and why the Left is now so ferociously fighting Trump’s efforts to protect America from refugees who hail from terror-infested nations.12

By denying the true character and roots of Jihad and Sharia through Jihad Denial, the Left prevents an evil enemy from being exposed and, in turn, enables that enemy. And the Left has been extremely successful in this feat, having imposed Jihad Denial on Western culture to such an extent that we are now seeing the virtual surrender of our civilization in the face of Islamic supremacism. Indeed, the West is now perpetually bending over backwards in its effort to silence any truth-telling about Islam and, of course, to disconnect Islam from every Islamic terror attack. Anyone who tries to point out unpleasant truths about Islam is either demonized or silenced. Many people are simply too scared to say what they see and think about Islam, because they are terrified of being called racists and suffering the consequences of being tarred with that word -- consequences that may include stigmatization, marginalization, getting fired from one’s job, being held back in one’s career, being criminally charged, and much more.13

All in all, what Jihad Denial has achieved is to make the real perpetrators the victims, and the victims the perpetrators. Patriotism is now considered hatred -- while self-defense is regarded as an incitement to violence against innocents. As a result, the effort to defend Western civilization from Islamic supremacism has been largely paralyzed.

Our next step in evaluating this disaster is to explore how Jihad Denial works as a machine. It is vital to lay bare the main arguments utilized by Jihad Denial, since they are extremely calculating, deceptive, and destructive. In the next chapter, we outline and discredit the specious facades of Jihad Denial.

American Thought Leaders: Lawyer Lisa Haba on Lawsuit-Section 230 Does Not Protect Sex Trafficking

Rumble — Twitter is being sued for refusing to remove a video of alleged child sex abuse from its platform.

According to the lawsuit, a child was coerced by sex traffickers to record sex acts with another minor. A video of this was later posted on Twitter. When he asked for the video to be removed, Twitter allegedly said it “didn’t find a violation of our policies, so no action will be taken at this time.” It was only when the Department of Homeland Security stepped in that it was finally removed.

In this episode, we sit down with attorney Lisa Haba. The case was jointly filed by The Haba Law Firm, The Matiasic Firm, and The National Center on Sexual Exploitation Law Center (NCOSE).

All Not Well at Newsmax

"Now he is fighting an even bigger battle against even bigger odds, while being censored and de-platformed by the liberal-left media and social media companies. As if all that isn’t bad enough, Lindell also faced a hostile “interview” and censorship on the conservative network Newsmax on February 2, during which anchor Bob Sellers repeatedly interrupted Lindell, then got up out of his chair and stormed off the set. Sellers insisted that Newsmax was not going to allow Lindell to discuss election fraud, asserting that the election had been certified and settled. Sellers’ outrageous treatment of Lindell and his insistence on adopting the Big Media/Big Tech party line of unquestioning acceptance of the official election results reportedly caused considerable blowback from Newsmax viewers. In a subsequent episode, Sellers apologized for his over-the-top reaction and referred to Lindell as “a friend of the network.”

The Sellers escapade adds to other concerns that Newsmax may be drifting the way of Fox. The hiring of disgraced former ABC/NBC pundit Mark Halperin has been cause for concern. As the result of charges of sexual harassment by multiple women, Halperin was bounced from NBC in 2017. Although he denied some of the particular charges, he apologized for “inappropriate” behavior and said he was going to “properly deal with this situation.” However, aside from Halperin’s status as “damaged goods,” there is his left-wing persuasion and pedigree. His father, Morton Halperin, is a notorious far-left/pro-communist activist who has worked for the ACLU, the Carnegie Endowment, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), and the Center for American Progress. Morton Halperin is currently a senior advisor to George Soros’s Open Society Foundations and has been closely involved with the subversive Institute for Policy Studies and the pro-communist National Lawyers Guild.

Mark Halperin’s father, Morton Halperin, and his brother, David Halperin, are members of the globalist Council on Foreign Relations. In 2019, Mark Halperin came out with a campaign-themed book entitled How To Beat Trump: America’s Top Political Strategists On What It Will Take. A gaggle of left-wing Democrats assisted him in this effort to rehabilitate his career: Donna Brazile, James Carville, David Axelrod, Jennifer Granholm, Kathleen Sebelius, Bob Shrum, Anita Dunn, Karen Dunn — and others.

Then there’s the troubling political “evolution” of Newsmax founder and CEO Christopher Ruddy. Not only has he given $1 million to the Clinton Foundation, but has also become something of a buddy of and cheerleader for Bill Clinton, opining that Clinton “was a pretty good president in a lot of ways.” Ruddy the executive has come a long way since his investigative journalism days tracking Bill and Hillary Clinton’s crime spree. His 1997 book The Strange Death of Vincent Foster was a damning indictment of the Clintons — and of the media and government cover-up of the Foster murder, which (like the Jeffrey Epstein death) has been officially ruled a suicide. Now Ruddy calls himself a “moderate conservative” and has adopted Fox News founder Rupert Murdoch’s modus operandi of cozying up to both political parties.

Are the Bob Sellers/Mike Lindell dust-up, the Mark Halperin hiring, and Chris Ruddy’s political “mellowing” signs that Newsmax may be drifting in the same leftward direction as Fox, even while staking out a conservative-sounding agenda to lure in Fox defectors? Something to think about."


Can Ron DeSantis Teach Media Relations to Weak Republicans?



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

The DeSantis Factor Keeps Getting Stronger

Happy Thursday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. Anyone know where I can get a used submarine in good condition?

The Republican party’s Biden-era adjustment period is a bit all over the place, to put it mildly. We knew that there would be more than a few adjustments to be made after Donald Trump left Washington for the sunshine of Florida, but it’s turned out that there are more than that.

Naturally, most of the party drama involves D.C. Republicans. Too much time inside the Beltway infects even the best people with a severe case of the drama queens, so that’s to be expected. Even the ones you want to like eventually end up not being able to get out of their own way while trying to knock someone else over trying to get to a camera. Expect the worst, and the Beltway Republicans will never disappoint you.

Most of my conservative friends and colleagues prefer not to dwell on this hot mess too much and dream of better days, like 2024. I’m not a big fan of getting too far ahead of ourselves like that, and I’ll be writing a column about that in the next day or two. Still, it’s a useful coping mechanism for many and fleshing out a partial plan is never a completely bad idea.

Whenever the hopes for 2024 are discussed, the name of Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida comes up a lot. There are a lot of Trump supporters who would like to see him return and run again. Among those people, DeSantis seems to be the favorite to run if Trump doesn’t decide to put himself through that again.

It’s easy to understand why DeSantis would be so popular with conservative Republicans who aren’t in the mood for the GOP to backslide and start capitulating to the Democrats all the time. He doesn’t do much of that.

OK, any of that.

Throughout this plague, DeSantis has heeded his own instincts rather than react to the shrieking of the Democrats and their hysterical flying monkeys in the media.

That’s precisely what the Republican party needs — leaders who don’t fall for the false promise of respect from the mainstream media. It was bad enough before Trump won in 2016. The MSM hacks would dangle carrots for witless Republicans. If the Republicans in question did what they were told — like backstab other Republicans — they’d be treated slightly less awfully in the press. As soon as their service was no longer required, it was back to crap treatment as usual.

All of the biased media malpractice was more veiled and coy before Trump made everyone involved rip off their masks and expose themselves for the cancer that they are. That the insidiousness of their ways is now a fully known commodity and there are still so many Republicans who want to play into their hands is rather disturbing to those of us who found Trump’s media battles such a refreshing change of pace. Decades of watching Republicans like Mitt Romney and George W. Bush gleefully submit to being whipping boys for the MSM had left us searching for reasons to stick with the party.

Trump changed all that. If the GOP wants most of those 74 million votes Trump got last year to stick around it better not fall in line behind squishes who are saying, “Thank you sir, may I have another?” while being embarrassed by the likes of CNN.

Speaking of media, we saw social media wield real bias and power in the 2020 election, and all of it for the Democrats. To date, the only pushback Republicans in Congress have managed has centered around strong finger-wagging during sham hearings.

DeSantis and his legislature are working on some actual pushback, which Bryan wrote about on Tuesday:

A new proposal expected to be filed Tuesday would prohibit companies from suspending the account of a political candidate and be subject to a fine of $100,000 for each day the account of a statewide candidate is blocked, or $10,000 a day for other office seekers.

The proposal would also allow consumers to sue if they have been treated unfairly and would authorize the state attorney general to take on the country’s largest tech companies because of anti-competitive practices. Social media companies would be required to reveal how they became aware of any content they censor.

That might not be a complete fix, but it’s more concrete than anything the D.C. GOPers have attempted.

Ignore the mainstream hacks, push back legally against the social media barons when possible. If only DeSantis could impress that attitude upon his fellow Republicans. Some are getting the vibe — South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem comes to mind — but a lot more need to get with the program or the GOP will be relegated to a double-masked Democrat mandate hell forever.

Or until China occupies the United States.

New York Times Details Horrors of Trump’s ‘Muslim Ban,’ Ignores Victims of Jihad Attacks




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

The New York Times story opens with a scene of unmitigated horror: “On May 30, 2019, Mohamed Abdulrahman Ahmed should have been in class preparing for exams. Instead, neighbors found the gifted high school senior hanging lifeless from a beam in his home in the Dadaab refugee camp in northeastern Kenya. He had taken his own life.” Since this is the New York Times, it comes as no surprise that the ultimate culprit is none other than Donald J. Trump, and his nefarious “Muslim Ban” that his wise successor’s handlers have now consigned to the dustbin of history.

Times author Ty McCormick does his best to tug at our heartstrings as he describes Dadaab, “a sea of sand and thorn scrub and makeshift tarpaulin dwellings” that is “home to more than 200,000 people — a city the size of Richmond, Va., or Spokane, Wash., except without electricity or running water.”

It’s a place absolutely mired in despair, but “over the years, refugees in Dadaab have clung to one hope: resettlement overseas, sometimes in Europe or Canada but mostly in the United States. Tens of thousands of Dadaab’s residents have come to the United States; in 2015, for instance, more than 3,000 people from the camp were resettled there.”

But then came the reign of the Evil One: “Those hopes of a better life were dashed on Jan. 27, 2017, when on his eighth day as president, Donald Trump suspended all refugee admissions and banned entry to citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries, including Somalia. (Restrictions were eventually applied to 13 countries in all.)”

It’s a predictable sob story about how hard the residents of Dadaab have had it since they have been unable to come to America. One is moved to tears, but when one begins to consider the issue rationally, other considerations inevitably intrude: there are people who are having hard times all over the world. In fact, there are even people who are having hard times in the United States of America. There are people who are suffering economically, like the people in Dadaab. There are people who are suffering physically, emotionally, mentally, and in other ways. All over the world, there is suffering and pain. Why, then, is it the moral responsibility of the United States of America to alleviate the suffering of the people of Dadaab? No one in Kenya or Somalia or France or China or Australia or anywhere else is doing a thing to alleviate the sufferings of Americans; why is it up to Americans, all of whom are suffering in various ways themselves, to alleviate the suffering of everyone else?

Meanwhile, what about the suffering of those whose lives were destroyed by Somali migrants who came into the country before Trump’s travel ban came into effect? Can we get a New York Times article on them? Somali Muslim migrant Mohammad Barry in February 2016 stabbed multiple patrons at a restaurant owned by an Israeli Arab Christian. When is the New York Times going to interview the people whom Barry stabbed, and publish a piece about how they have suffered, and how their lives forever changed that day? When is the New York Times going to write a piece about the other people who were in the restaurant that day, and explore their trauma, their horror, their terror, and the nightmares and anxiety they have experienced since then?

When does the New York Times plan to profile the victims of Dahir Adan, another Somali Muslim migrant, who in October 2016 stabbed mall shoppers in St. Cloud while screaming “Allahu akbar”? Do Adan’s victims get a New York Times article about their injuries, their healing processes, any operations they may have had to undergo, and their own ongoing trauma and fear?

How about the victims of Abdul Razak Artan, yet another Somali Muslim migrant, who in November 2016 injured nine people with car and knife attacks at Ohio State University? Does the New York Times plan to explain to us how the victims whom Artan tried to run down with his car (in an instance of the common phenomenon of vehicular jihad) now find their hearts racing at the prospect of having to cross the street?

Of course, the New York Times is not going to publish even a single line about the suffering of those people and others like them, or even consider the possibility that Trump’s travel bans did anything but harm. Only the suffering of the people of Dadaab and others like them, not the suffering of victims of jihad attacks, matters to the Times. The suffering of the people of Dadaab is very real, and should be addressed, but is the only solution, or the best solution, really the resettlement in the United States of large numbers of people among whom is an unknowable number of jihad terrorists, who will enter undetected since any vetting to try to discover them will be deemed “Islamophobic”?

There will soon be new victims of Biden’s handlers’ marvelous, multicultural discarding of the “Muslim Ban.” The New York Times will ignore them, while congratulating themselves on how they helped install a president who strikes back against “racism” and “xenophobia.”

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez Wants to ‘Rein In’ Media


CHILLING: AOC Wants a Gov't Commission to 'Rein in' Media to Prevent 'Disinformation'


'I can say, there is absolutely a commission being discussed but it seems to be more investigatory, in style rather than truth and reconciliation, so I think that’s an interesting concept for us to explore,' she replied. 

'And I do think that several members of Congress, in some of my discussions, have brought up media literacy because that is a part of what happened here and we’re going to have to figure out how we rein in our media environment so that you can’t just spew disinformation and misinformation,' Ocasio-Cortez said. 

Welcome to AOC's "Ministry of Truth" (COMMUNIST STYLE) 


Squad member's suggestion for federal commission to 'rein in' the press is slammed as 'wholly un-American' attack on free speech

  • Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made the remarks in Instagram video this week
  • She said Democrats are discussing plans to 'reign in' media 'misinformation'
  • Suggested the plan could be part of a 'truth and reconciliation committee' 
  • Proposal drew furious backlash and was called a plot to restrain the free press
  • 'She wants to basically establish a Ministry of Truth,' columnist Joe Concha said
  • 'It's just creepy, not to mention wholly un-American,' wrote David Harsanyi
  • Others predicted that government 'fact checkers' would be politicized 
  • AOC's remarks echo Trump's attacks on the press that were slammed by critics

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said in an Instagram post that she and several other members of Congress were exploring the possibility of setting up a commission to “rein in” the media, whom she accuses of spreading “disinformation” in the lead-up to the Capitol attack.

Since I don’t think she’s talking about stifling the New York Times or Washington Post, I wonder who she has in mind to “rein in”?

This was the same Instagram interview in which she admitted that she feared for her life during the Capitol attack, so it’s not surprising that the media would ignore her suggestion for censorship and lead with her life being in danger.

But her suggestion that the United States Congress needs to form a commission to rein in the news media has gone largely unreported,

New York Post:

There’s absolutely a commission that’s being discussed but it seems to be more investigating in style rather than truth and reconciliation.


I do think that several members of Congress in some of my discussions have brought up media literacy because that is part of what happened here.

Here’s our “expert” on media literacy.

How easily could a government commission become a censorship board?

We’re going to have to figure out how we rein in our media environment so you can’t just spew disinformation and misinformation.

It’s one thing to have differentiating opinions, but it’s another thing entirely to just say things that are false, so that’s something that we’re looking into.

What is “disinformation”? What is “misinformation”? What is “false”? What AOC is ignoring is that her “truth” might not be the same as your “truth.” And she wants a government commission to “investigate” which is which?

David Harsanyi:

As a practical matter, we can already envision from “lived experienced” — as a progressive might say — how sanctioning the state to adjudicate the veracity of journalism can be abused.

We need only point to our media “factcheckers,” journalists with political and ideological biases who have regularly, and arbitrarily, labeled completely debatable contentions as falsehoods, while either ignoring or justifying scores of other unsettled contentions. Are these the arbiters of facts who will be manning the government commission appointed by those storied truthtellers in congress?

A recent example was the suppressing of the New York Post’s blockbuster story of Hunter Biden’s business deals and whether or not Joe Biden, as vice president, profited from them. An alliance of Big Tech and left-wing media made sure that either the story was suppressed or “debunked” by “fact-checkers.”

No doubt AOC’s “commission” would help facilitate bringing to heel the conservative media. I don’t know about you, but I’d almost prefer a “truth and reconciliation commission” to a media star-chamber.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Wants to Liberate Red States From Their Suppression


The All-Out Assault on Conservative Thought Has Just Begun



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

After the white nationalist riots in Charlottesville, Va., in 2017, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and others renewed their demands for the suppression of conservative speech on social media. After Trump’s supporters breached the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, Big Tech companies clamped down on President Donald Trump and many of his supporters. Incoming President Joe Biden has said he plans to pass a law against domestic terrorism.

While conservatives rightly denounced the violence this week, this response bodes ill for conservative speech not just on social media, but in the public square and even in private organizations.

In the aftermath of the Capitol riots, Twitter suspended President Donald Trump’s account for the first time and Facebook permanently banned the president. After Trump deleted the tweets Twitter had flagged and had his account restored, Twitter proceeded to ban him entirely on Friday, and then it banned the official President of the United States (POTUS) account.

Facebook throttled the great Rush Limbaugh, notifying him that his “Page has reduced distribution and other restrictions because of repeated sharing of false news.” Limbaugh left Twitter in protest after the platform banned Trump. Apple and Google attacked Parler, claiming that the new haven for conservatives had allowed people to plan the violence of the Capitol riots on its platform.

House Democrats filed articles of impeachment that explicitly blame President Trump for the Capitol riots, even though he never told his supporters to invade the Capitol. While the president’s exaggerated rhetoric inflamed the rioters, Democrats repeatedly did the same thing this summer. Before and after Black Lives Matter protests devolved into destructive and deadly riots, Democratic officials repeatedly claimed America suffers from “systemic racism” and institutionalized “white supremacy.”

Columbus’ Proposed Police Witch Hunt Will Send Chills Down Your Spine

Big Tech did not remove House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s accounts when she called for “uprisings” against the Trump administration. Facebook and Twitter did not target Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez when she claimed that allegedly marginalized groups have “no choice but to riot.” These platforms did not act against Kamala Harris when she said the riots “should not” stop.

This week, Joe Biden condemned the Capitol rioters, saying, “What we witnessed yesterday was not dissent, it was not disorder, it was not protest. It was chaos. They weren’t protesters, don’t dare call them protesters. They were a riotous mob, insurrectionists, domestic terrorists. It’s that basic, it’s that simple.”

Yet he refused to speak in those terms when Black Lives Matter and antifa militants were throwing Molotov cocktails at federal buildings, setting up “autonomous zones,” and burning down cities. Instead, he condemned Trump for holding up a Bible at a church — without mentioning the fact that that very church had been set on fire the night before.

Despite this hypocrisy, Biden’s speech on Thursday proved instructive. Biden used the Capitol riots to condemn Trump’s entire presidency, accusing Trump of having “unleashed an all-out assault on our institutions of our democracy from the outset.” Biden twisted Trump’s actions into an attack on “democracy.” He claimed Trump’s originalist judges were a ploy to undermine impartial justice — when they were truly the exact opposite. Biden claimed Trump’s complaints about the Obama administration spying on his campaign were merely an “attack” on America’s “intelligence services.” Biden said Trump’s complaints about media bias constituted an attack on the “free press,” when the Obama administration actually attacked the free press.

Despite the fact that leftist violence has wracked American cities for years (remember Ferguson and the shooting of police officers in Dallas in 2016?), Biden seized on the Capitol riots as evidence that everything the Right had been saying the past four years was a blatant and destructive lie.

This reminded me of the Southern Poverty Law Center, a once-noble civil rights organization that has become a far-left smear factory. The SPLC weaponizes its history suing white supremacists and the Ku Klux Klan into bankruptcy and monitoring them through its Klanwatch program to silence conservative thought. It brands mainstream conservative organizations “hate groups,” listing them along with the KKK on a “hate map.” This “hate map” inspired a deranged man to target the Family Research Council (FRC) for a mass shooting in 2012.

Doubling Down on Division: Joe Biden Uses Capitol Riot to Demonize Trump’s Entire Presidency

The Trump administration has worked with conservative organizations the SPLC falsely smears as “hate groups,” and the SPLC has made hay of this fact. Its latest “hate group” report — published last March — mentioned Trump no fewer than 66 times. Yet the SPLC carried water for antifa during the riots this summer.

The SPLC has repeatedly pressured Big Tech to clamp down on conservative “hate groups,” suggesting this is the right way to fight white supremacist terrorismAmazon has excluded mainstream conservative Christian nonprofits from its charity program, Amazon Smile.

After Charlottesville, the SPLC raked in cash with big donations from Apple and JPMorgan. CNN even shared the SPLC “hate map” on its website and Twitter account, effectively endorsing the false accusations.

Not surprisingly, the SPLC has already seized the moment after the Capitol riots.

“One of the powerful lessons we must take away from this week’s coup attempt by President Trump and his supporters is that 2021 is not a time for half measures in the fight against hate and extremism,” Margaret Huang, the SPLC’s president and CEO, said in a statement on Friday. “This violence is bolstered by the infrastructure of white nationalist movements that the Southern Poverty Law Center has been tracking and fighting for decades.”

She warned that the Capitol riots will become “a recruitment tool for white nationalist movements” and “hate groups.” She claimed that “the violence in Washington was predictable and preventable,” citing the SPLC’s list of “hate groups” — specifically the increase in the number of white nationalist hate groups. (Since the SPLC does not explain how large specific “hate groups” are, the number of such “groups” is arguably meaningless. Some “hate groups” consist of merely one person.)

Prominent leftists are likely to celebrate the SPLC as the harbinger of this violence, and the SPLC does do some important work monitoring white nationalists. Unfortunately, the group also smears conservative and Christian groups because they defend biblical sexuality, oppose illegal immigration, and warn about the threat of radical Islamist terrorism. Even fellow liberals have condemned the SPLC’s “anti-LGBT hate group” accusation against Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a conservative Christian law firm that has won multiple Supreme Court cases.

The SPLC also has skeletons in its closet. In 2019, the SPLC fired its co-founder, had its president step down, and had a prominent member of the board distance herself. The scandal broke out due to accusations of (decades-old) racial discrimination and sexual harassment. Amid the scandal, former employees came forward to expose the “con” of exaggerating hate to bilk donors.

Despite all this, the SPLC still enjoys considerable sway among Big Tech, corporate America, the legacy media, and the Democratic Party. When Attorney General Dana Nessel (D-Mich.) announced a new “hate crimes” unit, she specifically cited the SPLC’s list of “hate groups” in the state. Kamala Harris, soon to become vice president, has repeatedly cited the SPLC in attacking Trump’s judicial and administration nominees.

This makes it all the more ominous that Biden has said he plans to prioritize passing a law against domestic terrorism. Domestic terrorism is indeed a serious problem in America, but Biden’s egregious and blatant double standard on the Capitol riots and antifa, along with his party’s growing alliance with the SPLC, suggests he may use such a law to silence conservative dissent while going soft on far-left rioters.

Conservative Christians should pay close attention to this threat. Biden, like the SPLC, has long championed LGBT activism, and in 2018 at an LGBT activist group, he attacked people who have “tried to define family” in the U.S. as “the dregs of society.” At the CNN LGBT town hall in October 2019, Biden called for a kind of terror watchlist to monitor organizations that oppose same-sex marriage and transgender identity. Biden firmly supports the Equality Act, which would outlaw discrimination against LGBT people. While Americans do not support discrimination, laws like this have been weaponized to punish Christians for refusing to celebrate same-sex weddings.

Buckle up, conservatives. The Biden administration represents a serious threat to conservative thought in the public square, and now Democrats have both houses of Congress to ram their agenda through.

In fulfillment of Bible prophecy, the Democratic leadership of the 117th U.S. House of Representatives is 
attempting to defy God with an “inclusive language” policy. The new rules would “address issues of inequities 
on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, age, or 
national origin.” This is impossible nonsense, of course, since addressing alleged inequality on the basis of 
sexual orientation or gender identity creates inequality against sex and religion, etc. The rule would outlaw 
the use of he and shefather, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, nephew, niece, husband, 
wife, father-in-law, mother-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, grandson, or granddaughter, among others. 
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the new measures would make the House of Representatives “the most 
inclusive in history.” True, and it would also make it the most stupid in history. “So God created man in his 
own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them” (Genesis 1:27). “The 
kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his 
anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in 
the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision” (Psalm 2:2-4).

Emanuel Cleaver, an ordained United Methodist minister and Democrat Representative, opened the first 
session of the 117th U.S. Congress by praying in the name of a Hindu god. He concluded, “We ask it in the 
name of the monotheistic God, Brahma, and god known by many names by different faiths. Amen and 
a-woman.” The term “amen” has nothing to do with gender, of course. It simply means “so be it.” According 
to the Encyclopedia Britannica, “Brahma was born from a golden egg and created the earth and all things 
on it. Later myths describe him as having come forth from a lotus that issued from Vishnu’s navel.”

The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) is standing up for freedom of speech against the totalitarian cancel culture. 
After the WSJ published an editorial on Dec. 11 by Joseph Epstein poking some fun at Joe Biden’s wife, Jill, 
for flaunting the title of “Dr.,” there was a “flood of media and Twitter criticism,” angry tirades demanding 
an apology, retraction, lifelong ban of Epstein, and the resignation of the WSJ editorial editor. Epstein was 
sharply criticized by Northwestern University, where he taught some 20 years ago. The school went so far 
as to remove Epstein’s name from its website listing past faculty. In his reply to the critics, Paul Gigot, 
editor of the Wall Street Journal’s editorial page, wrote, “My guess is that the Biden team concluded it was 
a chance to use the big gun of identity politics to send a message to critics as it prepares to take power. 
There’s nothing like playing the race or gender card to stifle criticism. ... these pages aren’t going to stop 
publishing provocative essays merely because they offend the new administration or the political censors 
in the media and academe.” In a report on the WSJ brouhaha, The New Criterion observed, “Last month, 
after the electors met to cast their votes for him, Joe Biden once again made a plea for unity. ‘Now it’s time 
to turn the page ... to unite and to heal,’ he said. We applaud that sentiment. But we wonder what he 
means by ‘unite’ and ‘heal.’ To judge by the actions of the institutions supporting his cause in this sorry 
episode, ‘turning the page’ might just be euphemism for sweeping everything and everyone out of step 
with his program into the oubliette” (“The ‘Dr.’ will see you now,” The New Criterion, Jan. 2021).

The following is excerpted from “U.S. Divorce Rate,” Christian Headlines, Nov. 11, 2020: “The new data 
shows that 14.9 marriages per 1,000 ended in divorce in 2019, a rate that is the lowest it’s been since 
1970, according to an analysis by author Wendy Wang, director of research for the Institute for Family 
Studies. It’s even slightly less than in 1970 when it was 15.0, Wang wrote in an online analysis. The data is 
derived from the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey. ... The drop in the divorce rate likely will 
continue, despite the pandemic, Wang asserted. New data from the American Family Survey shows that 58 
percent of married Americans say ‘the pandemic has made them appreciate their spouse more and half 
agree that their commitment to marriage has deepened,’ Wang wrote.  ... But the Census data also has 
some bad news for the nation: The marriage rate continued to decline in 2019, hitting an all-time low. 
‘For every 1,000 unmarried adults in 2019, only 33 got married. This number was 35 a decade ago in 2010 
and 86 in 1970,’ Wang wrote.”

The following is excerpted from “Court Strikes Down,” PJMedia, Nov. 25, 2020: “Last week, a panel on the 
11th Circuit Court of Appeals effectively struck down two Florida bans on sexual orientation change efforts 
(SOCE) that sought to ban counselors from putting minors through ‘conversion therapy.’ The court ruled 
that the laws violated the First Amendment by restricting free speech. While LGBT activists have rightly 
condemned the historic abuses of ‘conversion therapy’ in the past, modern SOCE therapists use patient-
directed talk therapy, not ‘shock therapy.’ When the City of Boca Raton and the County of Palm Beach 
banned SOCE counseling, licensed marriage and family therapists Robert Otto and Julie Hamilton sued, 
seeking an injunction to prevent the city and county from enacting their bans. ... The therapists argue that 
‘their clients typically have sincerely held religious beliefs conflicting with homosexuality, and voluntarily 
seek SOCE counseling in order to live in congruence with their faith and to conform their identity, concept 
of self, attractions, and behaviors to their sincerely held religious beliefs.’ ... As Judge Grant wrote, ‘The 
ordinances thus codify a particular viewpoint--sexual orientation is immutable, but gender is not— and 
prohibit the therapists from advancing any other perspective when counseling clients.’ ... This involves an 
unconstitutional restriction of free speech. ‘Whether therapy is prohibited depends only on the content of 
the words used in that therapy, and the ban on that content is because the government disagrees with it. 
And whether the government’s disagreement is for good reasons, great reasons, or terrible reasons has 
nothing at all to do with it. All that matters is that a therapist’s speech to a minor client is legal or illegal 
under the ordinances based solely on its content,’ Judge Grant wrote. ... Lawsuits against ‘conversion 
therapy’ bans received a new lease on life thanks to NIFLA v. Becerra. In that decision, Justice Clarence 
Thomas explicitly struck down California’s law forcing crisis pregnancy centers to advertise abortion under 
the argument that states can regulate ‘professional speech.’ In striking down California’s law, Thomas 
referenced a case (King v. Governor of New Jersey) involving bans on sexual orientation change efforts. 
Otto v. Boca Raton represents a landmark case for therapy freedom.”

Lockdowns dominated the news for 2020, but the really big lockdown is in the future. Bible prophecy was 
fulfilled literally and precisely in the first coming of Christ, and it will be fulfilled in the same manner in His 
second coming. As a precursor, the Antichrist will lockdown the whole world with his worship program and 
economic control scheme, backed up by the death penalty. It will be a global North Korea. “And he had 
power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause 
that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small 
and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And 
that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his 
name” (Revelation 13:15-17). The Covid pandemic is child’s play compared with the trouble that looms on 
the horizon. Billions of people will die during the Great Tribulation from wars, famine, pestilence, 
earthquakes, and totalitarianism on a scale that will make Stalin and Mao seem like choir boys. It is all 
described in the book of Revelation for those who are interested. It is called “the day of the Lord” because 
it will spell doom for “the day of man.”

Top U.S. Media Outlets “Compromised” by Communist China

Sponsored by CUSEF, the webinar explores the challenges to U.S.-China educational collaboration and how to sustain and even advance the significant progress that has been made over the past 40 years.




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

A huge list of left-wing establishment media outlets have troubling ties to the mass-murdering Communist dictatorship ruling over mainland China, according to newly released documents. One leading commentator who first broke the story argued that it showed Western media was “compromised.” The outlets involved in the scandal include powerhouses such as CNN, the New York Times, Fox News, the Washington Post, Bloomberg, MSNBC, and many major newspapers across the country. Millions of dollars have been paid by the regime to top U.S. media outlets, too.

According to documents obtained by the National Pulse, a shadowy Beijing-backed outfit known as the China-United States Exchange Foundation (CUSEF) has been treating key U.S. media personalities and “journalists” to exclusive private dinners and even trips to Communist China. Among other major concerns, CUSEF was founded by the vice-chairman of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), which U.S. authorities have identified as a critical part of the Chinese Communist Party’s “United Work Front.”

The regime’s “United Front Work” department is a crucial branch of the regime handling its overseas influence operations. The U.S. government’s U.S.-China Security and Economic Review Commission (USCSERC) noted in an official report that the CCP uses United Front work “to co-opt and neutralize sources of potential opposition to the policies and authority of its ruling Chinese Communist Party.” This would be completely in line with efforts to manipulate the American media, which, aside from being naïve, has a bizarre soft spot for communism.

Using United Front, the CCP selects a wide range of targets for manipulation — especially those in a position to support or oppose the mass-murdering regime’s objectives, such as media outlets. “The United Front strategy uses a range of methods to influence overseas Chinese communities, foreign governments, and other actors to take actions or adopt positions supportive of Beijing’s preferred policies,” the 2018 U.S. government report on China’s Overseas United Front Work continues.

In an interview with The New American magazine last year, investigative journalist Joshua Philipp with The Epoch Times, who investigated the United Work Front, explained that its operatives in the United States were terrorizing dissident Chinese in America. Some of those attacks included physical violence by Communist Chinese operatives, he explained. The regime also targets leaders in Chinese communities overseas to help expand Beijing’s influence in nations such as the United States.

With funding from CUSEF, another key outfit involved in the wining and dining of “journalists” is BLJ Worldwide, a lobbying and “communications consultancy.” On its website, the controversial firm boasts that it is “proud” to “work with numerous nations and governments, among them some of the largest and most influential on Earth.” It uses its “powerful global network” that includes “thought leaders and media.” Whether the mass-murdering dictatorship enslaving China is among BLJ’s clients was not immediately clear, but one of its two listed vice-presidents serves “governmental, corporate, and nonprofit clients based in the U.S., China,” and other nations.

Indeed, according to 2011 disclosures made under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) cited by Axios, CUSEF paid BLJ $20,000 each month to promote pro-Beijing propaganda in America. This included sending journalists and journalism students to China to give them a “positive look at China’s accomplishments.” This was done to supposedly “educate the next generation of U.S. journalists on China and U.S.-China relations while they are still honing their craft,” the public filings revealed.

Another element of the BLJ package for CUSEF included crafting a “short-medium term U.S. campaign to influence key constituencies (politicians, academics, and experts) as well as general public opinion regarding China’s true efforts and intentions in Tibet,” where the regime in Beijing is engaged in what critics have referred to as “cultural genocide.” This scheme was supposed to help analyze how “leading United States high-school textbooks” portrayed Tibet and China, then help peddle Beijing’s talking points as recommendations for “countering the tide of public discourse.”

According to CUSEF’s federal disclosures required under U.S. law, the goal of the campaign is to “effectively disseminate positive messages to the media, key influencers and opinion leaders, and the general public” about the Chinese regime. “In order to develop favorable coverage in key national media, BLJ will continue to organize and staff ‘familiarization trips’ to China,” CUSEF added. “This includes recruiting top journalists to travel to China, selected for effectiveness and opportunities for favorable coverage.” It paid off, with the CCP getting its propaganda pushed in dozens of top outlets and hundreds of “news” and opinion pieces across America.

As this magazine has been documenting for years, CUSEF is also bribing American universities and educational institutions. As The New American reported this weekend, CUSEF is also flying top American politicians to China to be wined and dined. The list of politicians who have made the trek include congressmen, senators, governors, mayors, and prominent state lawmakers from both parties. Reports created by these politicians on their trips were then distributed with the help of CUSEF lobbyists to other political leaders and opinion molders.

A related scandal involving Communist Chinese propaganda and establishment media outlets in the United States is also brewing. Last June, CCP mouthpiece China Daily filed a disclosure with the U.S. Department of Justice admitting that it had paid $19 million U.S. dollars to top American “news” organizations. That includes about $12 million to leading newspapers that serve as mouthpieces for the globalist establishment and now, Communist China, such as the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the Washington Post.

The China Daily paper, a wholly-owned propaganda mouthpiece for the murderous regime in Beijing, paid U.S. media outlets some $2 million just in 2020 to promote CCP talking points. It paid almost $20 million throughout the Trump administration’s term in office so far, revealed official disclosures filed with U.S. authorities and required by federal law. Other newspapers listed as being on Beijing’s payroll include the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago TribuneBoston GlobeSeattle TimesHouston Chronicle, and Foreign Policy.

According to a report by Judith Bergman at the conservative-leaning Gatestone Institute, the strategy being pursued by the CCP propaganda machine is to buy huge “ads” in these newspapers in the form of “China Watch” inserts. These are carefully crafted to look like “news” coverage in the newspaper, misleading casual readers into believing the paid CCP propaganda is actually a news report by one of the newspapers on Beijing’s payroll.

“The practice does not seem to have caused any sort of actual uproar in those media circles that engage in it,” observed Bergman. “This reticence is odd … because so many journalists and editors consider themselves as standing up against racism, ethnic and religious discrimination, and human rights abuses. Taking money from the Chinese Communist regime in exchange for spreading its propaganda would seem to indicate that this stance is simply empty posturing.”

On the Wall Street Journal “China Watch” website, which has not been updated for months but still features content from their CCP “partner,” a broad range of paid propaganda pieces glorifying the mass-murdering dictatorship and parroting its dishonest narrative can be found. And unless one looks closely, the content appears almost indistinguishable from a regular news article. The same is true for the many other U.S. media outlets that publish the paid CCP propaganda.

Would WSJ and other major American newspapers accept paid propaganda from Adolf Hitler’s National Socialist regime, which slaughtered millions of innocent people? If not, why do they run propaganda from the CCP regime, which has murdered over 100 million, not including unborn babies? The barbarism and savagery of the two regimes is off the charts, and top Communist Chinese officials have made clear that they intend to supplant the United States — and even destroy it with nuclear weapons under certain scenarios.

The coopting of Western media is all part of a coordinated strategy by Chinese dictator Xi Jinping. “China needs to strengthen media coverage … and use innovative outreach methods … to tell a good Chinese story and promote China’s views internationally,” Xi was quoted as saying at the National Meeting on Propaganda and Thought Work in August 2013. He has echoed those points repeatedly since then, including telling a 2018 National Meeting on Ideology and Propaganda how important it was to improve “international communication” to present “good images” of China while raising the regime’s “soft power” and the influence of its “culture.”

Aside from co-opting Western “presstitutes,” as the Western media has come to be ridiculed by critics for behaving like prostitutes, Beijing also has its own massive propaganda megaphone with global reach. Xinhua, an intelligence front masquerading as a news agency, has agents all over the world spread out across hundreds of bureaus gathering intelligence and disseminating CCP lies worldwide. Whistleblowers have been trying to expose this threat for almost a decade, but of course, the CCP-compromised Western media has largely failed to report it.

According to a 2018 Pentagon report, the regime has even been buying up radio stations — including American stations — using subsidiaries to conceal the ownership. “These radio stations broadcast pro-China content but have not registered as agents of a foreign government under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA),” explained the Defense Department report, headlined “Assessment on US Defense Implications of China’s Expanding Global Access.”

The new revelations follow a recent leak of names of almost two million Communist Party of China members from the Shanghai area representing about two percent of the party’s total membership. The list, only parts of which have been published, already revealed that there are hundreds of CCP operatives in sensitive posts in Western governments, banks, embassies, defense contractors, pharmaceutical companies, and universities. The establishment media has been almost totally silent, for obvious reasons. More disclosures are expected in the weeks ahead.

There exists a massive array of powerful organizations in the United States working to build up Communist China — and especially its economic and military power. One of the most powerful but obscure is the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations, which has a leadership that reads like a who’s who of pro-Beijing powerhouse figures in the United States. The roster includes former U.S. Secretary of State Henry “New World Order” Kissinger, former U.S. Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair, former U.S. Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew, and more.

With the obvious fact that America’s top propaganda outlets posing as “news” organizations are compromised by the world’s most murderous dictatorship, it is perhaps no surprise that those same “news” organizations refused to expose the Biden and Harris families’ myriad corrupt ties to that dictatorship. But as The New American magazine has been reporting for many years, the Deep State and the mass-murdering regime are essentially partners in the quest to undermine America and freedom as they impose what they all openly describe as the “New World Order.”

If not stopped, the “New World Order” that globalist elites and Beijing are seeking to build will look a lot like Communist China — and America’s sellout journalists, who will lose all press freedoms guaranteed under the First Amendment, will bear a large part of the blame.

Trump Acted Properly, The Media is Lying About His Georgia Call

Trump's call with Raffensperger reveals U.S. President is a great negotiator & never gives up



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

Over the past couple of days, media headlines have tried to convey the impression that a leaked phone call between President Trump and top Georgia officials shows Trump pressuring Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to fraudulently “find” enough votes for him to win the state.

“Trump pressures Georgia’s Raffensperger to overturn his defeat in extraordinary call” read the headline from the Washington Post.

CNN called the leaked audio “astonishing new evidence of a desperate President Donald Trump” trying to “steal the election,” claiming Trump “tried to bully” Raffensperger “into finding votes” for him.

But a review of the transcript of the call shows no such thing. The Washington Post claimed that Trump “repeatedly urged [Raffensperger] to alter the outcome of the presidential vote in the state,” but that isn’t what happened.

Throughout the conversation, Trump lays out the evidence that there was voter fraud in the state, and demands an honest accounting of the ballots, which he believes would give him more than 11,000 votes needed to win the state. “I just want to find 11,780 votes,” is the key quote cited by the media, but there’s more to the quote.

“So look. All I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have. Because we won the state,” is what Trump said, in context. He also insisted that “there’s no way I lost Georgia. There’s no way. We won by hundreds of thousands of votes.”

During the conversation, Trump laid out the evidence, explaining how there “4,502 voters who voted but who weren’t on the voter registration list,” and “18,325 vacant address voters” whose votes should not have been counted. He even mentioned 904 votes linked to post office boxes, which is also not allowed. Trump also mentioned the State Farm videotape that corresponds to a late-night vote dump of at least 18,000 votes which were counted after Republican poll watchers were told to leave. Trump brought up nearly 5,000 out-of-state votes, 2,326 absentee ballots sent to vacant addresses, and roughly 5,000 votes from dead people. Then there are the suspicious military ballots that went all for Biden.

“So there were many infractions, and the bottom line is, many, many times the 11,779 margin that they said we lost by — we had vast, I mean the state is in turmoil over this,” Trump said on the call.

Raffensperger disputed Trump’s claims, saying that only two dead people voted, that the State Farm video didn’t actually show fraud. Raffensperger also claimed that an audit showed that there weren’t any ballots that were scanned three times.

While it’s true that not all of these allegations by Trump’s team may pan out or be proven, the allegations are linked to many thousands of votes and should be investigated properly. Yes, Trump did acknowledge that he’d only need roughly 12,000 votes to change the result, but that margin is smaller than the number of disputed ballots. “Look, Brad. I got to get . . . I have to find 12,000 votes, and I have them times a lot. And therefore, I won the state. That’s before we go to the next step, which is in the process of right now. You know, and I watched you this morning, and you said, well, there was no criminality.”

Trump very clearly believes that he legitimately won Georgia, and wasn’t asking Raffensperger to fraudulently “find” enough ballots to make up that margin. Trump discussed at length the examples of fraud, which are backed up by video evidence, affidavits, and statistical analyses.

Like the transcript with Ukraine president Volodymyr Zelensky that Democrats impeached him over, this phone call is yet another nothing burger that has the media and the left crying foul. There’s already a Wikipedia page for the “Trump-Raffensperger scandal.” Democrats are reportedly looking to censure Trump and have asked FBI Director Wray to open a criminal probe. But Trump quite clearly presented evidence that there was fraud, and made the case that the number of disputed ballots is larger than his deficit in the certified results. A proper investigation would resolve these outstanding questions about these disputed ballots.

"In December 2015, one of Telnaes's animated cartoons became the center of controversy. In response to an ad for the presidential campaign of Republican senator Ted Cruz, which featured his 5- and 7-year old daughters delivering a partisan message and an oblique attack on the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. In her cartoon, Telnaes portrayed the daughters of the senator as monkeys on leashes, with Cruz holding the leashes and grinding an organ. Though the cartoon was taken down from the Washington Post's website, Telnaes stood by it, tweeting "Ted Cruz has put his children in a political ad — don't start screaming when editorial cartoonists draw them as well.""

A Washington Post cartoon in the Sunday Opinion section portraying Republicans as “rats” is strikingly similar to a 1939 Nazi propaganda illustration portraying Jews as rats.

Ann Telnaes, the Washington Post’s self-proclaimed “Nasty Woman Pulitzer prize-winning editorial cartoonist,” produced a cartoon eerily similar to the one published in 1939 in the wake of the Anschluss, or the German annexation of Austria in 1938 by the Marxist publication “Das Kleine Blatt”.

The cartoon seeks to intimidate Republicans for following the process bestowed to Americans by the founding fathers to ensure fair elections. Telnaes and her allies seek to dehumanize those who dare to thwart the very evident and well-planned voter fraud that has occurred during the 2020 elections.

Steve Milloy of Junk Science highlighted the images side by side in a Tweet, but it has not stopped leftists from praising the cartoon. “A picture that’s truly worth a thousand words,” gushed Lawrence Tribe, Professor of Constitutional Law at Harvard.

“Ann Telnes does it again,” praised leftist podcaster Amy Siskind. “They are attempting to sink the ‘Ship of State,” lamented actor Tim Matheson. Journalist Dave Keating wrongly and embarrassingly observed that the “rats” cartoon is an illustration of a “shockingly long list of the Republicans in high office who collaborated in the attempted coup in America.”

Salon author Amanda Marcotte sneered: “Honestly, this is an insult to rats.” “Art Director” Chris Rukan at Washington Post Opinions experimented with his alliteration skills, gleefully tweeting that “really RATcheted up the RAT RATio in this RAT-tacular RAT-ravaganza.”

Americans should support those very few people who stand up to the bullying left. They are not “rats,” they are the actual resistance.
