(Natural News) It’s official: The White House has publicly and unapologetically announced the deployment of “strike forces” — a military term — to go door-to-door across America, targeting unvaccinated people in their own homes. This was proudly announced yesterday by Jen Psaki.

The goal of the program — which has already been denounced by numerous state governors and U.S. senators — is to coerce people into taking “kill shots” of spike protein bioweapons, which are deliberately mislabeled “vaccines.” Very quickly, this program will be ramped up to full mandatory status, which means gunpoint enforcement of deadly shots, essentially meaning the U.S. government is unleashing death squads across America.

And they aren’t even hiding it anymore.

My best advice on how to handle this is:

  1. If they come to your door, don’t answer it.
  2. If they keep knocking, call the police.
  3. If they break in your door, defend yourself.
  4. At all times, video record whatever is happening. And upload your video to Brighteon.com or other free speech platforms.

Every human being has the right to self-defense. An assault with an experimental vaccine that has already killed at least 9,000 Americans (according to VAERS.HHS.gov) is, of course, an assault with a deadly weapon.

Anyone attempting to assault you with a deadly weapon is committing a criminal act and should be arrested.

Here’s what Jen Psaki said this week:

“Our work doesn’t stop there and we are going to continue to press to get 12-18-year olds vaccinated… that’s one of the reasons why we initiated these strike forces to go into communities…”

Watch her say it here:

The Biden regime just declared war on American civilians

“Strike forces” is a military term that refers to armed squads who intend to destroy their target. In this case, the target is every American who refuses to be injected with spike protein bioweapons. The government has declared war on the American people.

Deployed domestically, these militarized “strike forces” will consist of FEMA enforcers and almost certainly armed federal agents. These might be more accurately called “death squads,” and their goal is to either inject people with deadly bioweapons or medically kidnap them and take them away to FEMA’s covid death camps where they can be exterminated quietly, without making a scene on the street.

Anyone who resists this with a firearm will likely be executed on sight and labeled a “domestic terrorist.”

This has gone beyond merely “authoritarian.” The goal of the government is extermination. Mass depopulation by any means necessary. This is a declared way against humanity. Psaki didn’t use the phrase, “strike forces” by accident. That’s not a phrase to be used lightly, either. It has a very specific meaning that’s all about using militarized squads to destroy intended targets.

Listen to my full Situation Update podcast for the horrifying details on what the criminal Biden regime plans to unleash across America — a wave of executions, medical kidnappings and mass death:

This second video offers a short, 10-minute summary of all this that also discusses the likely timeline of how this overlays with gun confiscation and false flag operations. First, they need to run a false flag, then issue an order outlawing all firearms, and then they dispatch the vaccine death squads to the homes of those who either refused vaccines or who own guns.

If you comply, you are killed by the vaccine. If you resist, you are taken to a FEMA death camp. If you fight back, you are executed on sight by armed federal “strike forces” teams. They want you dead, and they are openly declaring their intentions to mass murder Americans in the name of “community good.”

Soon, FEMA squads and U.S. soldiers will be coming to your door to vaccinate you at gunpoint (or drag you away to a covid death camp)

(Natural News) The scenario I’ve been warning about for years is finally here. It’s now confirmed by the White House that FEMA goon squads will be going “door-to-door” across America to coerce unvaccinated people into taking deadly bioweapons spike protein kill shots.

It is now openly admitted that the government is keeping lists of those who are not yet vaccinated, and just today, Biden’s Health Secretary Xavier Becerra doubled down on the plans, claiming, “knocking on a door has never been against the law” and adding, “Because if you haven’t been vaccinated, we can help dispel some of those rumors you’ve heard and hopefully get you vaccinated.”

What rumors? Rumors that the government would be knocking on your door to coerce you into getting injected with a deadly bioweapon? That’s not a rumor, Xavier, that’s an admitted fact.

It turns out that it’s a violation of the law for the federal government to trespass on private property and harass private citizens over their vaccination status. As Robert F. Kennedy aptly states about this nefarious plan:

It’s a foreboding fork in the road to totalitarianism. We are now moving beyond the propaganda stage into this very coercive program where federal agents appear at American homes with the menacing message: ‘We know who you are and where you live. We have you on our list, we have your medical records, we want your neighbors to know that you are dangerous. We don’t recognize your property or privacy rights. You must take our untested, experimental pharmaceutical product. If you want to end this harassment, you must submit to a risky medical intervention made by an unscrupulous company with no liability and if you die or suffer permanent neurological injury, tough luck!’

The Biden regime’s totalitarian plan to threaten Americans on a door-to-door basis smacks of a medical dictatorship where no human rights or civil rights are respected whatsoever. This is exactly what we’ve been warning about over the last several years, usually being mocked by the controlled left-wing media that repeatedly insisted there would never be door-to-door vaccination coercion campaigns in America. They even claimed there would never be vaccine passports or vaccine mandates.

Now we have all three.

The dystopian future I warned you about is here right now.

From The Epoch Times:

“Door to door to vaccinate Americans this year… door to door to confiscate guns next year?” asked Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) on Twitter.

“In 2021, the nine most terrifying words in the English language: ‘I’m from the government, have you been vaccinated yet?’” wrote Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.).

White House spokesperson Jen Psaki confirmed all this over the last two days in official statements. Biden’s Health Secretary doubles down on it. They can’t wait to round up the anti-vaxxers because they know people who resist deadly vaccines are the same people who tend to own guns and vote Republican.

The US government just declared unrestricted warfare on the American people

This announcement by the White House is a declaration of war against the American people. They’re essentially saying you get to choose the method of your execution: 1) You can be executed by the spike protein injection which will likely kill you over the next year or two, or 2) You can be executed in a FEMA covid death camp for refusing the vaccine. In this case, you will die via guillotine or a forced spike protein injection at the camp.

If they don’t manage to find you, they will still try to starve you to death with engineered food shortages (famine) that are now being ramped up across America and the world.

And don’t forget the coming grid-down blackouts, cyberwar attacks, false flag attacks and door-to-door gun confiscation that’s coming next.

This is an all-out war against humanity, and it’s being waged on a global scale. The criminals in charge are knowingly exterminating their own people by the billions, all while claiming it’s for “public health.”

The only people who survive this will be those who are:

  1. Far away from blue cities.
  2. Well stocked and prepared to survive at least one year without a power grid.
  3. Capable of self-defense against imminent threats of violence against your life (an attack with a spike protein injection is an attack with a deadly weapon, and all people have the fundamental human right of self-defense).

In essence, you can now either choose to DIE (and comply) or LIVE (and resist the medical tyranny).

About half of the U.S. population has already chosen to die via spike protein injections. The Biden regime is now trying to mop up the other half to achieve a high kill rate, specifically targeting counties and regions with high “vaccine hesitancy” scores.

REP. RASHIDA Tlaib calls for defunding Border Protection, Immigration Enforcement, and Department of Homeland Security

One might almost get the impression that she wants America defenseless before its enemies if it weren’t for the establishment media and the political elites reassuring us of how patriotic she is.

“Rashida Tlaib calls to defund immigration agencies amid border crisis,” by Mark Moore, New York Post, July 8, 2021:

​Rep. Rashida Tlaib, original member of the progressive “Squad,” is calling for defunding immigration agencies like Customs and Border Protection, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and even the Department of Homeland Security, because they “terrorize” migrant communities.

Tlaib (D-Mich) in comments released Wednesday from an interview with Just Futures Law was reacting to a question about her thoughts on President Biden wanting to increase technology at the border for CBP​, Immigration and Customs Enforcement​ and the Department of Homeland Security in response to the ongoing crisis of hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants arriving in the US.

“Look, the simple answer to that question is we must eliminate funding for CBP, ICE and their parent organization, DHS,” Tlaib told the legal group that opposes deportation.

“Time after time we have seen it as advocates on the ground, as human services agencies on the ground continue to see over and over again, that these agencies are inept to humanely guiding migrants through our immigration system and instead they further continue to terrorize migrant communities located within our communities,” she said in the interview​ recorded last month.​…​

RED ALERT: Deranged tyrant nominated to head ATF says anyone uttering “hate speech” online should have all their guns confiscated by armed federal agents

(Natural News) One of the problems with having Marxists in the White House is that they tend to choose left-wing extremists to serve the administration, and that is certainly the case when it comes to David Chipman, the man the Biden regime has nominated to serve as director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF).

For one, Chipman only seems concerned about the “firearms” part of his regulatory position.

In an obscure interview with the BBC in 2019, Chipman came out and said that anyone who posts “hate speech” online ought to be subjected to having their firearms confiscated by armed federal agents, because the First Amendment and Second Amendment to the Constitution, he suggests by default, are not inalienable rights but rather those that are only granted by government.

“We really need to do more to monitor hate speech on the internet,” Chipman argued, going on to suggest that then-President Donald Trump’s speech was hateful as well and should also be regulated.

“But we also have to do more to curb that same speech being presented by our president and other elected public officials,” he went on.

Questions: Who are “we” and what “more,” exactly, should be done?

“The FBI, other federal agencies, have a tough job responding to these threats when they don’t currently (our emphasis) have the authority to remove weaponry just because people are saying hateful things,” he added.

Of course, “hateful things” is very often in the eye of the beholder, and when that speech arbiter happens to be a well-armed federal agency, that gets really worrisome really quickly.

It’s bad enough that a guy like Chipman has even been nominated to lead one of those armed federal agencies, but this guy literally would have jailed our founding fathers for their “hate speech” about liberty and freedom against the British Crown’s tyranny while at the same time confiscating their firearms.

The framers literally wrote and states literally ratified the First and Second Amendments to be able to be a) critical of government; and b) armed while being critical of government. Chipman and those in government like him want to punish Americans in the same way King George did before the American Revolution.

The one good thing is that Chipman may actually lack the votes in the evenly divided Senate to win confirmation. Yes, the Senate is currently split 50-50, Republicans and Democrats with Kamala Harris providing the tie-breaking vote, but he may not get all 50 Democrats.

Fox News reported late last month:

The Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday advanced President Biden’s nominee to run the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) on a party-line vote, setting the table for an uncertain confirmation effort on the Senate floor. 

Republicans, all of whom voted against David Chipman in the 10-10 Judiciary Committee vote, have raised alarms about Chipman’s alleged hostility toward guns – citing his past comments and his previous work with gun control groups like Giffords and Everytown. It’s likely all 50 Republicans will vote against the nominee on the Senate floor. 

“After meeting with Mr. Chipman, listening to Mainers, and reviewing his record, I have decided to vote against Mr. Chipman’s nomination to serve as the ATF Director,” Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, said in a statement ahead of the Judiciary Committee vote. “In recent years, Mr. Chipman has been an outspoken critic of the firearms industry and has made statements that demean law-abiding gun owners.”

Meanwhile, Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., a constitutional originalist, echoed most Republicans when he said of Chipman that he’s leery of his “agenda… to take away Second Amendment rights from law-abiding citizens while violent criminals are loose on our streets.”

Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, blasted Chipman for saying in a Reddit post a few years back that anyone who fails a gun background check should be arrested.

“We don’t arrest people before they commit crimes. That’s the sort of thing that’s reserved for bad post-apocalyptic dystopian novels and movies,” Lee said.

Racist Mayor: Ted Wheeler OF PORTLAND, OREGON

12th in a series

BY THOM NICKELS

SEE: https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2021/06/racist-mayor-ted-wheeler-thom-nickels/;

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

Editor's note: This is the 12th part in Frontpage Mag's series on Racist Mayors. (See previous parts below this article). Stay tuned for more installments.

Mayor Ted Wheeler of Portland is one of those sinewy male types who look as though they could live to be 100.  His biography states that he loves any type of physical challenge: swimming laps, running half marathons, participating in triathlons, and Iron Man contests. Not only that, but the 6 foot 59-year-old has climbed and reached the summit of Mount Everest and doesn’t let being mayor keep him from taking quick swims in Portland’s Willamette River. His picturesque Oregonian boyhood included hiking, camping, and climbing local peaks, further proof, as if any was needed, that his favorite sort of challenge is the one-on-one variety--- or doing things his way.   

Wheeler’s fondness for no-contact athletics indicates a loner personality, so it comes as no surprise when in December 2018, just one year into his first term as mayor, Willamette Week, Portland’s newspaper, noted: “No man is an island, but Ted Wheeler looks marooned.”  Of course, he looks marooned. When you look a little deeper into the man’s bio, you realize that this a man who thinks he can do it all by himself, from climbing Everest to tackling triathlons, so it’s quite unlikely that he’s going to ask for help from teammates that do not exist.  

Wheeler was Oregon’s state treasurer from 2010 to 2016 prior to running for mayor. This experience caused him to be called a “pragmatic executive who challenges the status quo when the politics are on his side.” (Read this sentence twice for full effect.) As state treasurer, he supported a reform of the state’s retirement system and went against his fellow Democrats when he challenged plans for a new Interstate 5 bridge.

Fast forward to 2021, when Wheeler’s mayoral “marathon” had reached a crisis point with critics pointing out that he was “trying to do too much, and do it on his own terms.”

 During his first year as mayor, the Willamette reported on the existence of “Extremist groups [that] regularly brawled in Portland streets at the behest of Joey Gibson, an unemployed Washington real estate broker who leads a right-wing group called Patriot Prayer.” The news insinuated that Patriot Prayer was a serious threat to urban peace and tranquility when in fact it was mostly a paper tiger with a “right-wing extremist’ label stuck on it by so-called anti-fascist groups who were really fascists themselves.  In 2020 this fact would be made plainly clear when the so-called anti-fascists held the city hostage for the better part of a year, subjecting it to nightly riots and wide-scale destruction.

The most dramatic confrontation between Patriot Prayer and the left occurred on August 29, 2020, when a mile-long caravan of what the media termed “far-right activists” entered Portland to confront BLM and Antifa thugs who were destroying downtown Portland. During that melee, Antifa activist Michael Reinoehl shot and killed Aaron “Jay” Danielson, a caravan participant.  Reinoehl was later shot and killed by Portland police when he drew a gun while resisting arrest. 

Portland, the first U.S. city to lose its mind after the death of George Floyd, became the protest-riot role model for other cities across the nation.  Prior to the Floyd riots, there had been lighter skirmishes (and talk of skirmishes) in Portland between Patriot Prayer groups and left-wing protesters  that “frightened the city, frustrated downtown business owners and seemed to baffle the mayor—who tried repeatedly to bar Gibson's group from gathering.”

“The mayor did nothing to create these protests, but he seems ill-equipped to address them,” the newspaper cautioned in 2017.

This may have had something to do with Portland’s so-called “polite political way,” or its more or less relaxed attitude of letting “everything be” until the Apocalyptic 11th hour.

The period after Danielson’s murder was perhaps the darkest time for Wheeler. That’s when he found himself in the murky mist of a Faustian bargain he had made with leftists. He felt an obligation to coddle them and not go out of his way to offend them. Many Democratic mayors across the nation behaved in a similar manner but none gave them as much leeway as Wheeler.   

Portland is politically ‘woke’ in the extreme. One only has to check the city’s website, especially Meet the Mayor’s Team, to get a sense of the orthodoxy. Under each staff member’s name, you’ll find a list of their preferred pronouns. Ironically, out of the entire staff of 22, only one staffer deviates from traditional gender roles, listing themselves as they/them/theirs, suggesting that the rule for the whole was made for the sake of one.  A few staff members, however, in a display of common sense, ignore the pronoun category altogether by allowing only their names to indicate their biological gender.

"There was the hope he [Wheeler] would be the grown-up in the room," Jim Pasero, a conservative political consultant, told the Willamette in  2018. "I think he strategically when he got elected, decided to take a deep dive into the progressive end of the pool. But he is an MBA and a state treasurer, so I'm not sure it was a natural fit for him."

As mayor, Wheeler kept police from shutting down an Antifa blockade of federal immigration officers. He ignored the exponential growth of homeless camps throughout the city. Portland Downtown Clean & Safe, the city’s 7-day a week cleaning crew, reported that in Wheeler’s second year as mayor 39,000 hypodermic needles were picked up throughout the city, a marked increase from previous years. As a mayoral candidate, Wheeler promised a tenant’s bill of rights, radical police reform that included the “demilitarization” of the department, and the addition of body cameras on officers.  Wheeler’s ambitious leftist “marathon” also included plans to provide bed shelters for every homeless person in the city (Wheeler would later insist that he never meant that every homeless person would be sheltered.)  

When running for mayor, Wheeler wanted very much to win the hearts and minds of the city’s progressive community.

By October 2020, after the brunt of the George Floyd riots kept Portland burning for weeks, the National Police Association headlined a story: “Ted Wheeler Never Lets an Opportunity Pass to Put Portland in Danger.” For five days during the worst of the riots, the mayor was absolutely silent. Then, in September 2020, when the U’S. Marshals Service deputized members of the Oregon State Police, in effect allowing them to charge rioters with arrest under the federal imprint ( guaranteeing stiffer penalties), yet Multnomah District Attorney Mike Schmidt refused to prosecute rioters. Wheeler, rather than raise a voice in protest, kept silent. What had been the proper legal course of action in US cities when it came to convicting rioters was now discarded like Wheeler’s old running shoes because George Floyd riots were somehow different. The latest activist slogan said it all:  “No justice, no peace.”

While Wheeler condemned the violence in Portland during the worst of the riots, his words of condemnation never translated into action. Each condemnation, in fact, seemed to spew another cycle of burnings and lawlessness, so that many began to ask:  What is Ted Wheeler waiting for? Wheeler was waiting for the crisis to pass, for the Antifa, BLM, and the dressed-in-black Ninja gas mask-wearing street thugs to grow bored and go home, even though it seemed like they were winning the race.

In his naiveté, Wheeler did not realize (or want to admit) that Left Progressive movements tend to become more radical as time goes by and then, like a dog eating its own tail, turn back on those followers who don’t “catch up” in a cannibalistic frenzy.  Wheeler suddenly felt caught in the backlash.

In June 2021 The New York Times ran a story—“After Nearly a Year of Unrest, Portland Leaders Peruse a Crackdown”-- about a Portland resident who toured the city every day in tears at what the rioters had destroyed. The article told the story of how the Oregon Historical Society had its windows smashed two times by rioters who then wrote: “No More History” on the building’s walls.

“Portland was a beautiful city,” said Ms. Carter, who was the first Black woman elected to the Oregon Legislative Assembly and is now retired. “Now you walk around and see all the graffiti, buildings being boarded up. I get sick to my stomach. And I get angry.”  (New York Times)

An Antifa-sympathizing activist community group responded to the concern over the Oregon Historical Society by saying how the activists (rioters) “were intent on saving lives, while city leaders are focused on saving windows.”    

In August 2020, Mayor Wheeler who was finally fed up with the daily violence and burnings gave a televised speech imploring the leftist rioters in the city to take stock of their actions.

“Many of the residents of our mostly white city,” he said, “have exercised their free speech rights to peacefully protest structural racism in a way that makes me proud to be a Portlander, but these crises have also created an opening for violent extremists, to do harm to our city, to scare our downtown employers late at night, to wreak havoc in an effort to drain city resources, not in an effort to reinvest them….Rising up to destroy structural racism is a noble cause, pulling people from their vehicles and beating them in the streets is a horrific violent crime…”  

Wheeler called on all city residents to start talking about ending the violence, to “virtually link arms” while remembering that “We can do better.” This oatmeal milquetoast plea, however, did not win the heart of rioters. His admission that “I take personal responsibility for not being here earlier, not finding ways to address these important issues,” is an ‘oft-repeated political form of address and apology, a kind of Pepto Bismol cure-all to make sure you still stay in the public’s good graces.

It was, as they say, a “Kumbaya” moment and coming long after the horses had already left the stable, but not long before the mayor himself would begin to be a target for the cannibalistically-inclined street lefties.  The mayor’s television address also put into perspective his first worry when he took office in 2017: that an obscure right-wing group called Prayer Patriots posed an extremely dangerous threat for the city, a laughable comparison that today seems very close to insane.

Once the mania for rioting and burning takes hold, it’s there for the long haul.  Portland’s violent protests continued long after the George Floyd protests in other cities died out, and despite the mayor’s having committed $12 million to Black and Brown communities, previously slated for the police department. “I’m also directing all City bureaus in my portfolio to develop strategies to better serve Black communities,” the mayor is quoted as saying on the city’s Racial Justice site.

Wheeler has been confronted several times in restaurants by disgruntled leftists. Eater magazine reported that while dining out at a Northwest Bamboo Sushi location, he was accosted by a protestor shouting, “You gas children in their homes,” a reference to Portland police using tear gas on Black Lives Matter protesters. One time the mayor was forced to pepper-spray a stranger when the latter insisted he was violating social distancing rules. In January 2021 a group of protesters interrupted the mayor’s meal at Café Nell.

The Oregonian in June 2021 reported on a Total Recall campaign organized by activists who fault the mayor for the city’s “police response during months of racial justice protests.” (The city’s police response, if anything, was too little too late.) The newspaper quoted Athul Acharya, a civil rights attorney with the ACLU of Oregon, who stated: “Portlanders deserve better than a mayor who spent the summer tear-gassing his own residents.”

The mayor has also had to deal with leftists who have smashed windows and set fires inside his condo building.

But isn’t this what you get when you make a Faustian deal with the left?

Wheeler, who was re-elected for another term in November 2020, describes the people attacking him and engaging in criminal destruction as “middle-age to young white men…who should be arrested, investigated and prosecuted.”

“They want to burn, they want to bash, they want to intimidate, they want to assault,” the Washington Post reported Wheeler saying in April 2021. ‘Our job is to unmask them, arrest them and prosecute them,’ he said, asking the public to contact the police and provide them with information about the rioters, write down their license plate numbers or film them when they commit acts of vandalism.”

Sadly, Ted Wheeler’s epiphany has come too late.

“Wheeler, the über-progressive, who made a national reputation last year by apologizing for vandals and rioters he said were merely exercising their right to protest against an unjust America. Now he’s had an epiphany, after his indulgence has made parts of Portland a battle zone, The Wall Street Journal reported in April 2021.

Is a racist mayor still a racist mayor even after he sees the light?

Did Amazon’s Critical Race Theory Push Lead to a Racist Assault on a Customer?

When a company pushes racism, is it responsible when its employees assault white people?

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

Ever since Amazon created its own delivery service, the blue vests of its drivers and the dark blue trucks with the monopolistic giant’s arrow have become as ubiquitous as UPS brown or FedEx purple and orange on every street and highway in America. And with good reason.

Amazon’s package volume is expected to surpass UPS and FedEx as a host of men and women in blue rush to deliver orders from Chinese third-party sellers and drop shippers.

But on the first Friday of June, a delivery in California instead ended in a violent assault.

Usually, Amazon rips off customers, companies, and entire countries, but it doesn’t beat them. This time there was an exception as Itzel Ramirez, an Amazon driver in her twenties, was caught on video violently assaulting a 67-year-old woman who had asked about her package.

While Ramirez claimed self-defense, the video shows her assaulting the elderly woman from behind, punching her in the back of the head, and seemingly using a keyring in the assault. The beating caused the victim to collide with the door and reportedly left her with a broken nose.

It was not the first assault by an Amazon driver on an elderly person caught on video. An Amazon driver had previously assaulted a 73-year-old man in Miami Beach. But this time the Amazon delivery person had used a politically correct slur thereby turning it into a hate crime.

Ramirez had accused her victim of “white privilege”.

Despite that slur, she has not been charged with a hate crime. In a state where critical race theory is being forced into schools and on employees of major corporations, it’s not likely that a violent racist echoing an official dogma that demonizes white people would be held accountable.

Amazon claimed that the violent assault on one of its customers “does not reflect the high standards we have for drivers" and assured everyone that "this individual is no longer delivering Amazon packages.” But it may be worth examining what Amazon’s standards really are.

Like every Silicon Valley company, Amazon has gone all-in on critical race theory.

The Amazon assault happened the same year that Jeff Bezos, the company's founder and CEO, announced that he was stepping down. Bezos was ruthless, cruel, and amoral, but beyond using the Washington Post to become a D.C. power broker had less interest in conventional corporate virtue signaling.

Andy Jassy, his right-hand man who will replace him as CEO after being in charge of Amazon's cloud platform, is a more traditional Big Tech wokester.

Jassy falsely accused police departments of "murdering black people", supported illegal aliens, and made the decision to shut down Parler. His wife is a Bernie Sanders donor.

The incoming Big Tech CEO has vowed to focus the company on “diversity and more inclusion.” If its employees weren't feeling abused enough by having to pee into cups, Amazon mandated that all employees complete a 90-minute "Strengthening Our Culture of Inclusion" program.

Amazon had already banned non-inclusive language like "blacklists" (which didn't stop it from blacklisting all sorts of people), but now it was going further with identity politics affinity groups and its Conversations on Race and Ethnicity (CORE) events featuring extremists and racists.

CORE events packed thousands of Amazon employees into massive meetings to be accused of racism by a series of racist and extreme leftist speakers.

The Big Tech monopoly’s first CORE event had already featured Robin DiAngelo, whose famous idea is that white people are all racist and evil, as well as Carmen Perez, the Farrakhan supporter who served as one of the leaders of the Women's March before being forced out.

Amazon also invited Ijeoma Oluo, a self-described “internet yeller” who had written a book arguing that “white male mediocrity” is a theme throughout history. That’s exactly the message that a company of white male engineers needed to hear. Oluo had berated her own mother, who raised her after being abandoned by her Nigerian academic father, over her “white privilege”.

Also at Amazon’s first CORE was Michael Welp whose White Men As Full Diversity Partners stirred a backlash when its training at Lockheed described white men as racists and privileged.

Welp was also present at the second CORE event while stigmatizing white people.

Alicia Garza, a co-founder of the racist black nationalist hate group Black Lives Matter, appeared on a CORE panel together with DiAngelo and Perez.

Also, there was Latasha Gillespie, the head of global diversity and inclusion at Amazon Studios, who has claimed that police murder black people while ranting about "white privilege".

The second CORE event also included rabid hatred for America with Edgar Villanueva showing a slide that described America as being based on colonization and genocide.

What impact did all of these racist and hateful ideas have on Amazon employees?

Amazon, like many other major corporations, has submerged its employees in the dogma of critical race theory. And while this is meant to lead to the discrimination and mistreatment of white employees in the name of equity, could it also lead to violence against white people?

The Big Tech monopoly has relied on independent contractors to build its delivery network. However, Amazon also exercises a great deal of control over these drivers. And as its statement after the “white privilege” assault in California shows, it ultimately controls their employment.

Amazon has embedded equity into its Delivery Service Partner push and encouraged existing employees to become DSPs. Did any of its existing racist CORE programming have an influence on the cultural ecosystem of the DSP that employed Itzel Ramirez?

That is unfortunately a question that no one in the media appears to be asking.

The rise of the DSP system paralleled the rise of critical race theory at Amazon. Even while Amazon was finding new ways to virtue signal, it was also finding new ways to exploit workers.

Amazon’s DSP program evades accountability for delivery drivers like Ramirez who wear its blue vests and drive its vans, but who are actually working for small contractors, many of them minorities, who are being deliberately kept small so they can never compete for a better deal.

The Big Tech giant will insist that it had no responsibility for the assault on one of its customers by a racist driver who had absorbed the critical race theory slur of “white privilege” that Amazon had endorsed by featuring racist figures and rhetoric at its CORE inclusion events.

Amazon’s white leadership encourages racism against white people while remaining insulated from minority workers who might want to lash out at the nearest white person they can find.

When BLM and Antifa created CHAZ in their Capitol Hill Occupied Protest zone, the epicenter was about a dozen blocks away from Andy Jassy's 1906 mansion on the outskirts of Capitol Hill. But there's a world of differences between the local small businesses that were terrorized by black nationalists and anarchists in CHAZ and the sedate tree-lined street of multi-million dollar Victorian homes where Jassy and his pro-Sanders designer wife comfortably reside.

The incoming Amazon CEO may rant about the police and his home may boast the ubiquitous "Black Lives Matter" "No Human is Illegal", and "Science is Real" lawn sign preferred by wealthy woke suburbanites, but his estate is protected by a spiked gate and high walls disguised by massive hedges. Defunding the police is an experience to be lived out by other, poorer people.

Some people may be beaten by Amazon’s critical race theory drivers over their white privilege, but Amazon executives have spiked gates to make certain they’re not the ones being beaten.

Racist MINNEAPOLIS Mayor: Jacob Frey~10th in a series.

Editor's note: This is the 10th part in Frontpage Mag's new series on Racist Mayors. (See previous parts below this article). Stay tuned for more installments.

If you want to be thorough about the matter, of course, you can’t talk about the ongoing destruction of the city of Minneapolis under the auspices of its callow, hapless young mayor, Jacob Frey – aptly described by New York Post columnist Miranda Devine as a “soy boy,” a “man-child,” and a “half-price Justin Trudeau” (they’re both cute in the same doe-eyed, dumb-looking way) – without also taking into account the pernicious contributions of Minnesota Governor Tim Walz, whose mantra, since the death of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, has been “systemic racism”; Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan, who, with breathtaking mendacity, blamed last year’s Antifa and BLM mayhem on “white supremacists”; the state’s Hamas-linked, Jew-hating Attorney General Keith Ellison, a serial girlfriend abuser and longtime Farrakhan acolyte who boasts continually of his efforts toward “social transformation”; and radical-left City Council President Lisa Bender, who, when challenged (by CNN, no less!) on her ridiculous call for “a future without police,” dismissed public concerns about armed home burglaries as coming from “a place of privilege.”

But although each of these reprehensible characters has played a significant role in Minneapolis’s current tragedy, Frey, who turns forty in July, is without question the star of the show. His big moment came on June 6 of last year, when, in what Devine characterized as “a scene reminiscent of a Maoist struggle session,” the masked, t-shirted mayor inanely confessed to a restive crowd of black radicals that he was “coming to grips with my own brokenness.” Yet even this wince-inducing display of abject contrition wasn’t enough for them: when he told them he wouldn’t defund the police (although, as he assured the New York Times, he believes fervently in “deep structural reform of a racist system”), they jeered at him, and Frey, looking for all the world like a teenager being sent to bed without dinner by his parents, meekly obeyed the rabble’s command to go home. Did it count for nothing with this mob that two days earlier, in an almost equally pathetic tableau, Frey had abased himself at a memorial service for George Floyd, sobbing hysterically for over a minute, his entire body trembling and heaving, as he knelt by the creep’s casket? Or did the June 6 horde, having observed this embarrassing spectacle, figure that if this wuss could be brought so low, so fast, so easily, then perhaps, with just a little more humiliation, he might not only shutter the police department but offer to put every last cop in front of a firing squad?

These scenes of well-nigh unprecedented public debasement, as it happens, came after several days during which Frey, not previously known for a preoccupation with race relations, privately strove, in the wake of Floyd’s demise, to play catch-up, holding mawkish phone calls with black staffers and colleagues and activists and clergy, attending what the Star-Tribune called a “listening session hosted by Black media outlets,” reading a book about “the long-lasting psychological damage of racism,” and essentially apologizing for his whiteness to pretty much everyone in town with a melanin count higher than his own. So eager was he to ingratiate himself with the canaille - justice be damned - that before the verdict came in at the Derek Chauvin trial, he declared, disgracefully: “Regardless of the decision made by the jury, there is one true reality, which is that George Floyd was killed at the hands of police.” And this in a burg that was once famous mainly for being safe, clean, and dull – identified in the American mind with wholesome Seventies sitcom heroine Mary Richards and with the hard-working, law-abiding Scandinavian-Americans who called it home.

Indeed, while racial unrest is old news in places like Baltimore, Detroit, St.Louis, and Los Angeles, it’s new to Minneapolis – and to Minnesota generally, where, as Powerline’s John Hinderaker noted recently, the “population was barely 1 percent African-American” until 1980 or so; in the decades since, the growth in the non-white population has been the result mostly of mass welfare migration and a tsunami of Somali refugees. If black people consider Minneapolis a white supremacist hellhole, they sure have an odd way of showing it. Yet Frey would have you believe that his city has for generations been a locus of world-class tensions between oppressive whites and tyrannized blacks, that the Chauvin trial was part of a “global reckoning” after “centuries-long inequities and racial injustice.” And what was Frey’s own contribution to this momentous “reckoning”? Unforgivably, and to what we may hope will be his everlasting infamy, he decided to let criminal gangs run riot in the streets, laying waste to homes, banks, stores, libraries; faced with a decision either to send in the police to protect lives and property or to virtue signal by caving to a barbaric mob, he chose the latter, even instructing police to abandon a precinct house to the mindless jackals. After all, Frey pronounced, the havoc wrought by black rioters was the result of “400 years” of “built-up anger and sadness” and was thus “not only understandable” but “right.”

Among the victims of all this “understandable” violence have been several black Minneapolis children. On April 30 of this year, Ladavionne Garrett Jr., 10, was shot in the head in his parents’ car; he had brain surgery and slipped into a coma, but so far has managed to cling to life. On May 15, Trinity Ottoson-Smith, 9, was struck by a stray bullet at a birthday party and rushed to a hospital by police; when she died twelve days later, Frey tweeted tritely: “No parent should ever have to say goodbye to their child.” On May 17, Aniya Allen, 6, was shot by a stray bullet while eating a Happy Meal in a car outside her home; when she died two days later, Frey tweeted: “Aniya’s life mattered. Ladavionne and Trinity’s lives matter. We owe it to them and their families to help get answers.” Answers? The answers were obvious. Savages given carte blanche by Frey to go on shooting rampages had slaughtered innocent children. In all likelihood, these savages were black males – career criminals, probably, like Floyd, whom Frey had mourned so ostentatiously. But Frey, naturally, made no mention of this detail. (Nor, when he lamented, on March 17, the growing number of assaults on Asian-Americans, did he acknowledge that most of the perpetrators were black, and that these assaults were simply part of an overall rise in black crime; instead, he attributed them to “[h]ateful rhetoric,” presumably by white racists.)

The deaths of Trinity and Aniya, and the ordeal of Ladavionne, taught Frey nothing. His tweets about them came off as perfunctory. Only when white cops kill black hooligans does he seem to break out the Kleenex. This was demonstrated on April 11, when a police officer in the Minneapolis suburb of Brooklyn Center killed Daunte Wright, a black man resisting arrest on a weapons warrant; it was demonstrated again on June 3, when another black man, Winston Boogie Smith (was his mother an Orwell fan?), died during an exchange of gunfire with U.S. Marshals trying to arrest him for murder. Like Floyd’s death, but not those of Ladavionne or Trinity or Aniya, the deaths of Wright and Smith sparked new rounds of civil unrest in the Twin Cities – and more tearful hand-wringing by the reflexively repentant boy mayor: “The anguish in Katie Wright’s voice after losing her son echoes in my mind and across our entire state this morning….Minneapolis stands firmly with the people of Brooklyn Center in seeking justice for Daunte Wright and peace in our cities.” 

Even when he isn’t weeping convulsively over dead hoodlums, Frey engages in an over-the-top brand of racial pandering that self-respecting black Minneapolitans must surely find condescending. Every time he stands at a lectern (invariably coming off like a kid who’s been cast as a mayor in a school play), he repeats the same absurd hyperbole about the “400 years of injustice” that are now hitting the black community “like a tidal wave”; about how he’s “building a new and inclusive community as we speak”; about the urgent need to transform the intersection of 38th Street and Chicago Avenue, where Floyd died, into a “permanent memorial to George Floyd and everything that he stood for [!] in his life”; and about how the black citizens of Minneapolis should henceforth be the “key beneficiaries” of municipal largesse. Post-Floyd, pretty much every issue, in Frey’s anything-but-colorblind mind, seems to have become tinged with race: for example, he recently applauded a push in the Minnesota statehouse to legalize recreational pot use as an “encouraging step for racial justice.” You can’t make this stuff up.

As much as he’s genuflected toward blacks, moreover, Frey hasn’t neglected to fawn impressively over other non-whites. On April 12 (two days after tweeting that a newly opened Muslim eatery offered “the best goat I’ve ever had”), he bragged about having “granted a noise permit to Dar Al-Hijrah for Cedar-Riverside to broadcast the call to prayer for the holy month of Ramadan”; on May 13, he tweeted: “As this Holy Month comes to a close, I’m wishing all our Muslim friends and neighbors who observed Ramadan a happy and healthy Eid al-Fitr.” Note that while Frey, a Reform Jew, twice referred to Ramadan as “holy,” he failed, last fall, to tweet so much as a word about Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur. As for the two major Christian holidays in 2020-21, he contented himself with a brief, breezy “Merry Christmas to those celebrating” and “Happy Easter, Minneapolis.” And this man who called Ramadan “holy” made no mention of God in his Thanksgiving tweet (“Our family couldn’t be more grateful for the frontline workers, healthcare heroes,” etc.), which, in any case, was considerably less enthusiastic than his tweet, a week later, about Native American Heritage Day: “Love seeing Indigenous voices lifted up & celebrated….Leaders like Autumn Dillie [of the American Indian Community Development Association] are working year-round to make MPLS a better place.”

And, alas, his actions match his contemptible words. Repeatedly, he’s given the thumbs-up to special treatment for blacks at the expense of whites. In February he touted the Minneapolis Climate Action and Racial Equity Fund, which, in the name of pursuing an “inclusive” approach to climate change, distributes public funds exclusively to BIPOC- and immigrant-owned businesses; in March he promoted another initiative, this one administered by the Metropolitan Economic Development Association, that also enriches only black firms. The goal of Minneapolis’s post-COVID recovery, he explains, “has never been to return to the way things were. A more equitable economy means specifically lifting Black businesses.” Some might decry this policy as blatantly racist; but Frey calls it “inclusive recovery and transformation,” boasting that “equity has been the driving force behind allocating the limited funding we have.” Yes, not equality but equity – meaning systematic discrimination to address “systemic racism.” For if your city is emerging from a pandemic-induced economic crisis that was made even worse by a concomitant epidemic of black vandalism, arson, and looting, how to handle the recovery justly other than by throwing money at blacks and freezing out whites? On Martin Luther King Day, Frey proclaimed that he was “in awe of [King’s] legacy of championing meaningful change”; but virtually everything that this nincompoop has said and done during the last year has been utterly, and dangerously, at odds with King’s noble proposition that it’s character - not skin color - that counts.

ST. LOUIS’ Racist Mayor: Tishaura Jones

BY JOSEPH KLEIN

SEE: https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2021/06/racist-mayor-tishaura-jones-joseph-klein/;

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

Editor's note: This is the 7th part in Frontpage Mag's new series on Racist Mayors. (See previous parts below this article). Stay tuned for more installments.

The murder rate in St. Louis, Missouri, which is at a 50-year high, is reportedly the highest in the country. Tishaura Jones, who became St. Louis’s first African American female mayor last April, rejects the notion that it is the individuals who commit the violent crimes who should be held fully responsible for their crimes and serve their sentences in prison.  Jones, a radical leftist who has been described as a “champion of Black Lives Matter,” believes that society is responsible. She blames “systemic racism” and poverty as the root causes of the rampant crime afflicting her city. The newly elected mayor believes the answers to the crime problem in St. Louis are to cut the police department budget, close a jail, end cash bail, mandate mental health evaluations for police officers, and send social workers in response to 911 calls.

In one of her first decisions as mayor, Jones proposed an initial $4 million reduction in the St. Louis Police Department budget, including the elimination of 98 officers’ positions from the police force. “More police doesn't prevent crime,” Jones asserted last month. Nevertheless, in the typical leftwing hypocrisy of “rules for thee but not for me,” Mayor Jones “doubled the number of police officers on her personal security team,” according to the Police Tribune. While “Jones is beefing up her personal security,” the Police Tribune added, “she doesn’t seem as worried about the security of her voters.”

Former St. Louis Public Safety Director Jimmie Edwards, an African American, said last year that protesters outraged over police brutality against African Americans are ignoring the main issue involving the loss of black lives to crime. “Black-on-black crime--we run away from it like it doesn't happen," Edwards said. Jones rejects this premise out of hand, despite the overwhelming evidence that supports Edwards’ statement of fact. Jones' rush to blame a supposedly white-controlled racist system for the crimes rather than the perpetrators themselves - too often blacks killing or maiming other blacks - is racist in itself.

During her campaign for mayor, Jones tweeted that she planned on replacing Edwards because “it's time for a new direction. We'll put the public back in public safety, we'll make sure that police aren't the only response when you call 9-1-1, and we'll lead with prevention-first.” Edwards resigned before the April 2021 mayoral election.

As Matthew Vadum noted in his May 29th FrontPage article, “Jones’s campaign, which focused on ‘progressive’ criminal justice reforms, was unabashedly racist.” For example, Jones proudly tweeted on March 30th essentially what she had said during her debate with her liberal white female opponent: “A white person doesn’t have to have the ‘talk’ with their children. While I appreciate the role of white allies in this movement of progress, I don’t believe they have the lived experience to lead a majority-minority City right now.”

Jones racially stereotyped white parents and children as being too “privileged” to bother having a serious “talk” about crime.

Moreover, in Tishaura Jones’ racially divided world of "oppressors" versus the "oppressed," whites have no business running St. Louis solely because they are of the wrong skin color. Jones reiterated this message during her victory lap as Mayor-Elect. During a CNN interview on April 8th, Jones said that “what I heard from voters is that they are ready for a black woman to lead this city, that a black woman has lived experiences that others do not.” Jones is a purveyor of racist identity politics.

This wasn’t Jones’ first run for mayor. “St. Louis is the epicenter of Black Lives Matter,” Jones declared back in 2017 when she ran against and lost to a white female, Lyda Krewson, who chose not to run for re-election in 2021. After winning this time against another white female opponent, Jones spitefully declined to invite Krewson to her April 20th inaugural ceremony – breaking a decades-old tradition.

Mayor Jones is now busy making St. Louis City Hall the epicenter of Black Lives Matter and its anti-white, far-left progressive platform. Jones is also trying to do the same with the St. Louis Public Schools Board of Education, filling a vacant seat with a 25-year old pro-Back Lives Matter activist named Alisha Sonnier.

Sonnier made her mark as a leftwing agitator when she helped lead a student week-long occupation of a portion of Saint Louis University’s campus in 2014. Just seven years later, the young activist ran for a seat on the Board of Education. The only candidate out of ten whom Jones endorsed during the campaign was Sonnier, who lost anyway. Not to worry as far as Jones was concerned. After Jones won her own campaign for mayor, she used her current appointment power to have Sonnier fill a remaining vacant seat on the Board of Education.

Three weeks prior to the announcement of Sonnier’s appointment to the Board of Education on May 11th, Sonnier tweeted “that it’s time we look at how systematic oppression, capitalism & other structural inequities are negatively impacting us all & we’re overdue for systematic changes.”

Less than two weeks after her appointment, Sonnier tweeted enthusiastically about an event she attended where she had the opportunity to discuss “the intersection of white supremacy + class + patriarchy + abortion.” With Sonnier, Mayor Jones’s handpicked leftwing progressive wunderkind on the St. Louis Public Schools Board of Education, some radical changes in education may be right around the corner. St. Louis public school teachers and students could soon see the racist, anti-white critical race theory and the New York Times’ historically distorted “1619 Project” become an integral part of the St. Louis public school curriculum.

Mayor Tishaura Jones blames St. Louis’s out-of-control crime rate on systemic racism and poverty. The police, she believes, are a major part of the problem rather than a key part of the solution. It is estimated that the homicide rate per 100,000 in 2020 was 87.2. If systemic racism and poverty are the long-term root causes of crime as Jones and her Black Lives Matter allies claim, how do they explain the much lower homicide rate between 1997 and 2001, when a former African American mayor who had previously served as chief of police was in charge? It's worth looking back for a moment to get some perspective on Jones's racially divisive agenda as the third African American elected mayor in St. Louis.

During Clarence Harmon’s one term as the second African American elected mayor in St. Louis, the average homicide rate per 100,000 was under 40. Harmon’s predecessor, Freeman R. Bosley Jr., was the first African American elected mayor in St. Louis, whom Harmon defeated in the March 1997 mayoral Democratic primary. During Bosley Jr.’s one term, the homicide rate per 100,000 exceeded 50. After Harmon completed his term and brought the homicide rate down by approximately 20 percent, the rate did not rise above 50 again until 2015.

Bosley Jr. and Harmon had widely divergent approaches to dealing with crime and race, which first played out when Harmon resigned out of frustration as St. Louis’s police chief in 1995 while Bosley Jr. was mayor. Harmon felt that he was not getting enough support as police chief from Bosley Jr., who tended to look at the police through a racial prism. Harmon decided instead to run in 1997 against Bosley, Jr., who was seeking a second term as mayor.

During their 1997 primary campaign for mayor against each other, Bosley Jr.’s father, Alderman Freeman Bosley Sr., called Harmon a ``rented Negro.″  Bosley Jr.’s campaign was built around such racial polarization, casting Harmon as the white establishment candidate. Harmon ran his campaign as a coalition builder seeking racial rapport. ”The best representation is provided for all the people,” Harmon said. ”Everybody has to feel included.”

The voters in St. Louis back then were turned off by the racially tinged rhetoric of Bosley Jr.’s campaign. They felt more confident voting for the law and order candidate with a strong police background and sent Bosley Jr. packing. After Harmon won the general election the next month against two white opponents, he said "I'm ready to start the healing process beginning with this moment, the healing process St. Louis so desperately needs."

Fast forward to 2021. Tishaura Jones ran a racially charged, anti-police campaign. Rather than seek to heal racial divisions in her city after she won the election, Jones is using her office to widen the racial divide. That’s how leftwing progressive racists roll.

CANADIAN Pastor Tim Stephens arrested on new charges after ‘underground’ church services

Rumble — Rebel News' Adam Soos and Kian Simone were on scene as police in Calgary, Alberta arrested Pastor Tim Stephens of Fairview Baptist Church for a second time on new charges stemming from his hosting of 'underground' church services the past two weekends.

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

Pastor Tim Stephens was arrested on Monday afternoon on new charges after Fairview Baptist Church gathered for underground worship for the second week in a row since their church was effectively seized by Alberta Health Services last Saturday.

Alberta authorities were forced to drop other charges against Pastor Tim last month, after discovering that Alberta Health Services never served Pastor Stephens with the court order he was accused of having violated, a requirement under the order. That effectively ended the case against Pastor Tim, but he will now be facing another legal battle.

Over the weekend, an ever-growing crowd gathered at the undisclosed location and shared the word, sang songs of praise and heard Pastor Tim preach.

As worship progressed, a police helicopter discovered the gathered congregation.

It is unclear if police were actually searching for the group or simply happened upon it, as the helicopter was significantly north of the location of worship and continued towards the city. It wasn’t until several minutes later that the helicopter returned and completed repeated passes overhead.

Minutes later, police vehicles were seen circling the location, but they never moved in to interrupt worship or make arrests.

Ironically, all efforts to suppress worship by Alberta Health Services, whether at Pastor Artur Pawlowski’s or Pastor Tim’s church have only served to significantly bolster church attendance. As public health restrictions continue to be relaxed, these churches are not facing defeat at the hands of overreaching officials, quite the opposite — they are stronger and larger than ever before.

Despite worship continuing, Pastor Tim was arrested in front of his family on Monday. He is fortunate to be represented by the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, who will be working for his immediate release.

Polish Pastor Found Guilty of Exercising Free Speech; Sentenced to Community Service, Slapped with Steep Fines

Polish Pastor Found Guilty of Exercising Free Speech; Sentenced to Community Service, Slapped with Steep Fines

BY ANNALISA PESEK

SEE: https://thenewamerican.com/polish-pastor-found-guilty-of-exercising-free-speech-sentenced-to-community-service-slapped-with-steep-fines/;

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

On June 10, the government of Poland, a democratic republic, joined the increasingly despotic regimes of Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and, oh, Communist China, where the persecution of dissenting voices, particularly Christian pastors, is increasingly on the rise.

In an extraordinary move, the Polish state ruled against evangelical pastor Paweł Chojecki, punishing him for exercising his freedom of speech and for publicly criticizing in his sermons and via his online platform “the remnants of communism” in Polish President Andrzej Duda’s current leadership. Chojecki is also accused of attacking Catholic dogma with which he disagrees as a Protestant.

The 58-year-old founder of New Covenant Church and creator and editor-in-chief of Against the Tide TV was convicted in a District Court in Lublin, Poland, on Thursday of “insulting the religious feelings of Catholics, and insulting President Duda.” Judge Andrzej Klimkowski delivered the guilty verdict, concluding Chojecki’s months-long criminal trial that began this past March.

State Prosecutor Katarzyna Urban accused the pastor of insulting President Duda with the terms “ram,” “traitor,” “coward,” and “sleeping agent,” and demanded Chojecki serve up to five years in prison for such “assaults” on the state. Judge Klimkowski ruled in favor of a lesser but still restrictive sentence of eight months of community service and fines of more than 20,000 Polish złoty, the equivalent of roughly $6,000.

During his TV program on Thursday, Chojecki announced plans to appeal the judgment, which he claims is “not legally valid.”

“The greatest harm that this judgment does is that it has already gone out to the public,” exclaimed Chojecki. “I have been humiliated and stigmatized in front of the whole of Poland. The biggest victim of this verdict is the Polish nation, not me. It is our freedom that has been harmed!”

Dangerous Criminal?

Chojecki has long claimed that the current Polish state bears no resemblance to the once-great Western power of yore, when, in his own words, “religious disputes were separated from patriotism and a common concern for the state’s good.”

“It is the Poland of that period [the 16th century] that is known for its ingesting of religious freedom and tolerance,” he told The New American in May. “Poland was the power of Western civilization in the 16th century, which we know as the Golden Age. It was then that the discoveries of the Reformation about the role of the Bible published in national languages and salvation as a personal decision of faith in Christ reached our freedom-loving nation.”

It is extraordinary that in a free Poland, a pastor would be dragged to the courts over exercising his right to free speech. Yet Chojecki is no stranger to investigation by the Polish authorities; he’s been surveilled for years. A one-time member of the free-market, conservative Real Politics Union — in 2008, Poland’s most libertarian community — which he reportedly left after it adopted pro-Russian rhetoric in the once-communist nation, Chojecki at present exercises his freedoms by tackling controversial social issues via his sermons and online conservative Christian platform. Through this work, he has amassed hundreds of thousands of devoted followers.

On December 31, 2020, an indictment by the District Court in Lublin was issued against the pastor for “insulting the President of the Republic of Poland and inciting hatred on the basis of sectarianism.”

“I have been a Christian since the times of communism,” said Chojecki. “I converted [to Christianity] in 1986…. I was afraid [then] that I would be prosecuted by the Ministry of Public Security or the courts. Thank God this did not happen…. That the Polish State will punish me [now] for my beliefs and words…. I have not experienced something like this in my life. I don’t think any pastor in Poland has been convicted of criticizing the dogmas of another church.”

Allegations against Chojecki involving offending the religious sensibilities of Catholics by ridiculing Catholic dogma specifically involve his criticism of Catholic teachings on transubstantiation — “the change of the whole substance of bread into the substance of the Body of Christ and of the whole substance of wine into the substance of the Blood of Christ” — which he considers a form of idolatry. He also has allegedly suggested that the Catholic belief in the apparition of Our Lady of Fátima is a denial of what Christians know the Word of God says.

He further made this controversial statement: “You eat the little Jesus, and He will stay in you for up to 15 minutes. If someone digests faster, for example, if the priest has drunk wine, the digestion is faster, and Jesus lives in a priest for 5 minutes. As for a poor man who only drinks water, his gastric juices dilute it a little, and Jesus stays for 15 minutes.”

“Honestly speaking,” said Chojecki, “I do not know which object of religious worship is offended here and which words are an insult in this description. It is a humorous paraphrase of a fragment of an article from the Catholic portal Deon.pl: ‘So we can say that after consuming Holy Communion, this physical presence of Jesus lasts from 10 to 15 minutes in our bodies because this is how long the process of digesting takes more or less.’”

What’s Next?

Even if the judgment is overturned by the court of appeal, the punishment has already made a strong impact on the pastor’s reputation and sent a severe message of what will happen to others who dare share his viewpoints.

“The judge sent a clear signal to those who criticize the Catholic Church and the power of Law and Justice to be very careful about the words, because they will share my fate…. This punishment is intended to make me think about how my dogmas are presented. As I understand it, the point is that I have to think about my Christian beliefs. I wonder how the Poles will react. Is it really the court’s job to shape the dogmas of the faith of Poles?”

At the core of Chojeck’s trial is the issue of freedom of speech. Krzysztof Kilian, professor of ontology and theory of cognition at the University of Zielona Góra, offered these remarks in response to the judge’s ruling:

From what I know about it, in any literature on the subject, “religious feelings” have not been defined. If they have not been defined, it is difficult to talk about what has been offended, or what has not been offended…. There is exactly one definition in our Supreme Court that defines religious feelings as a mental state. The question arises, how can one offend someone else’s mental state?

A second query might be, why is the court taking the time to address the potential personal and religious feelings of Catholics throughout Poland?

Though Chojecki says he was prepared for such a verdict, he admits he has accepted it with great sadness. Quoting Philippians 1:29, “For to you it has been granted for Christ’s sake, not only to believe in Him but also to suffer for His sake,” Chojecki urged his supporters to continue to stand in solidarity with other Christians and to pray for him.

“Thank you very much to all those who have been with me during this time,” said Chojecki to his supporters. “My family, the crew, you as well. After all, the action #SupportPastorChojecki involved a few hundred people, numerous messages. This has been a great experience. I know we’re entering dark times. This is the [government’s] message: keep your trap shut! But the question now is: Are Poles free people?”

Consider learning more about Chojecki’s legacy in the video below and spreading the word about who he is and why he is fighting for principles of freedom, liberty, and justice for all.

It is imperative that we make our voices heard to the Polish government. To easily contact the relevant Polish officials in favor of the dismissal of charges against Pastor Chojecki, visit The John Birch Society’s action alert here.

Florida: Muslim Inmates Beat Officer Unconscious For ‘Touching’ Qur’an

BY AMY MEK

Why is a book filled with supremacy, hatred, threats, hostility, and commands to kill non-Muslims given to violent offenders?

A Flagler County Sheriff’s Office Detention Deputy in Florida was punched 25 times in the face and back by two Muslim inmates Friday, causing him to lose consciousness. The attack occurred after the inmates became enraged that the officer handled the inmate’s Qur’an. The officer searched the book during a routine security check for weapons and contraband, often hidden in hollowed-out books.

In many Islamic countries, even accusations of mishandling a Qur’an could mean death. Muslims believe that since non-Muslims are impure, they cannot touch the Qur’an because the book itself instructs, “No one can touch it except those who are pure.” (56:79) They believe that the non-Muslims are impure because they claim the Qur’an states it: “Indeed the polytheists are impure.” (9:28)

Inmates Carlos Dupree and Marion Leo Gavins Jr. were captured on jail video surveillance footage violently attacking the corrections deputy. The pair were going to a religious meeting and requested to bring their religious items with them. According to standard procedure, the Detention Deputy was instructed to search the inmate’s items.

Inmate Gavins’ allowed the Deputy to search his belongings. However, when the officer tried to search Dupree’s religious items, the inmate told him “he would not allow him to search his Quran.” Prison officials reported that the detention deputy tried to reach for the Quran and Dupree shoved the deputy away. The deputy attempted to detainDupree; however, Gavins shoved him into the wall.

The two inmates launched into a brutal attack on the deputy, repeatedly punching him in the back and face until he lost consciousness. Detention Deputy Meyer heard the assault and rushed in to detain the inmates. Despite Deputy Meyer’s help, Gavins continued punching the injured Detention Deputy. The inmates were finally able to be subdued.

The Detention Deputy was rushed to the hospital with head and back pain along with lacerations to his head, back, and forearm. It was suspected he sustained a concussion from the attack and underwent numerous medical tests. Doctors have since released the officer to continue his recovery at home.

Both Gavins and Dupree were already charged with serious crimes before they attacked the Detention Deputy.

Gavins, 20, was charged with first-degree murder in the 2019 killing of 18-year-old Curtis Gray. Gavins shot the star athlete outside of the ‘Blaze N’ Flame Smoke Shop’ in Palm Coast.

Dupree, 34, had been in jail since December 2020 related to a home invasion robbery. His charges included possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, false imprisonment, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, home invasion with a firearm, wearing a mask while committing a felony, and resisting without violence.

Dupree and Gavins are both being additionally charged with aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest with violence, and depriving an officer of means of protection or communication.

Why are Qurans Allowed in Prisons

America and western nations allow inmates to have copies of the Qur’an, a dangerous book that preaches hate and violence towards non-Muslims. There are dozens of Quranic commandments about waging violent jihad against infidels.

The Qur’an dehumanizes and stigmatizes non-believers, making it easier for Muslims to rationalize attacks in the name of Islam. As reported at Gatestone,

The holiest book of Islam (most of which is about non-Muslims) draws the sharpest of distinctions between Muslims, the best of people (3:110),  and non-believers, the worst of creatures (98:6).

Far from teaching universal love, the Quran incessantly preaches the inferiority of non-Muslims, even comparing them to vile animals and gloating over Allah’s hatred of them and his dark plans for their eternal torture.  Muslims are told that they are destined to dominate non-believers, against whom harsh treatment is encouraged.

Why is a book filled with supremacy, hatred, threats, hostility, and commands to kill non-Muslims given to violent offenders?  The Muslim men were acting in accordance with the Qur’an, a book approved by the prison. Will the prison ban the book and stop putting non-muslims correctional officer’s lives in danger? Is the Florida Department of corrections ignorant about the calls to violence in the Qur’an or terrified of being labeled Islamophobic?

As reported by the Religion of Peace, the Quran contains at least 109 verses that speak of war with nonbelievers, usually based on their status as non-Muslims. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding.

The Qurans violent verses are very clear:

“O believers, fight the unbelievers who are near to you; and let them find in you a harshness, and know that Allah is with the godfearing.” (Qur’an 9:123)

Fight them, till there is no persecution and religion is all for Allah; then if they give over, surely Allah sees the things they do.” (Qur’an 8:39)

“When your Lord was revealing to the angels, ‘I am with you; so confirm the believers. I shall cast terror into the hearts of the unbelievers; so strike the necks, and strike every finger of them!” (Qur’an 8:12)

“We will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve for what they have associated with Allah of which He had not sent down authority. And their refuge will be the Fire, and wretched is the residence of the wrongdoers.” (Qur’an 3:151)

For more violent Qur’an verses, see here. To learn more about what the holiest book of Islam says about non-Muslims, see here.

Unfortunately, there are very few verses of tolerance and peace to balance out those calling for non-believers to be fought and subdued until they either accept humiliation, convert to Islam, or are killed.

DOJ Releases Biden Gun Confiscation Order Legislation

NRA-ILA AR-15 Locked

In May, Attorney General Merrick Garland told lawmakers that the Department of Justice’s civil rights work was “critical to protecting the American dream.” IMG NRA-ILA

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- In May, Attorney General Merrick Garland told lawmakers that the Department of Justice’s civil rights work was “critical to protecting the American dream.” Since then DOJ has made clear that Garland’s selective definition of “civil rights” has no room for the Second Amendment or even basic due process under the law. Moreover, contrary to recent messaging, Garland and the DOJ appears to support an increase in civilian-police confrontations – so long as the civilian involved is not actually suspected of having committed any crime.

On June 7, the DOJ released model state gun confiscation order legislation – sometimes referred to as “extreme risk protection order,” “gun violence restraining order,” or “red flag” legislation. Regardless of the marketing, such laws empower the government to extinguish a person’s Second Amendment rights and confiscate their firearms without due process. Those subject to these orders are stripped of their rights without being convicted of any crime. By releasing this model language, the Biden administration has endorsed these unconstitutional measures.

Section 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution provides that no state shall “deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.” In District of Columbia v. Heller (2008), the U.S. Supreme Court determined that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms; in the Fourteenth Amendment context, a liberty. A respondent’s firearms are, of course, their property

Ex Parte Orders

The Biden gun confiscation order language provides that a,

court shall issue an emergency ex parte extreme risk protection order upon submission of an application by a petitioner, supported by an affidavit or sworn oral statement of the petitioner or other witness, that provides specific facts establishing probable cause that the respondent’s possession or receipt of a firearm will pose a [significant danger/extreme risk/other appropriate standard established by state law] of personal injury or death to the respondent or another person.

An ex parte hearing takes place without notice to respondents and without their ability to participate in the proceedings. The court is only presented the statements of the individual petitioning to strip the respondent of their rights. There is no opportunity for the respondent to challenge the veracity of the petitioner’s statements. This one-sided procedure is ripe for abuse.

The Biden administration proposes a “probable cause” evidentiary standard for the ex parte gun confiscation order procedure. This means that the petitioner need not establish proof that the respondent poses a “risk” in order for the court to issue a confiscation order.

Moreover, a “probable cause” standard makes no sense in this context. In order to make an arrest or acquire a search warrant, police need to cite specific facts that establish probable cause that a crime has been committed. Crimes, of course, have specific elements. In the Biden gun confiscation order context, no crime has been alleged. Vague claims about a person’s strange but lawful behavior giving rise to “probable cause” of “risk” is a ridiculous perversion of the long-established legal process.

Orders Pursuant to a Hearing

Biden gun confiscation orders issued after a full hearing, where the respondent had an opportunity to participate, would strip a person of their Second Amendment rights and firearms for at least one year. Under the Biden language, such an order could be renewed indefinitely in one-year increments – empowering the government to strip a person of their Second Amendment rights in perpetuity without a trial.

Moreover, in the full hearing context, the Biden administration endorses a “preponderance of the evidence” evidentiary standard. In other words, the petitioner must prove that there is a greater than 50-percent chance the respondent meets some nebulous level of “risk.” Of course, this weak evidentiary standard is in stark contrast to the traditional evidentiary burden used in circumstances where individuals face a lengthy and indefinite loss of a fundamental right: “beyond a reasonable doubt.”

During the course of an order, a respondent would have one opportunity to petition for the termination of their gun ban. In order to prevail,

The respondent shall have the burden of proving, by the same standard of proof required for issuance of such an order, that he or she does not pose a [significant danger/extreme risk/other appropriate standard specified by state law] of personal injury or death to himself or herself or another.

In a sick perversion of our constitutional order, under the Biden legislation, the state would be relieved of its burden to prove that the respondent poses a “risk” that necessitates the continued deprivation of a fundamental right. Rather, the respondent would be required to prove that they do not pose a “risk.”

Such a bastardized legal procedure based on a flimsy evidentiary standard combined with an ill-defined concept of “risk” endangers all gun owners’ right to keep and bear arms.

Petitioners

In many jurisdictions with gun confiscation order legislation, only close family members and law enforcement officers may petition for an order. This helps to ensure that the petitioner has a significant relationship with and knowledge of the individual, or in the case of law enforcement, will face professional consequences if they have been found to have abused the procedure.

In its draft legislation, the Biden administration has made clear that they want the categories of petitioners to be far broader. The legislation would define eligible petitioners to include,

(E) A health care provider [as defined by state law] who has provided health services to the respondent; 

(F) An official of a school or school system in which the respondent is enrolled or has been enrolled within the preceding [six months/one year/two years/other appropriate time period specified by state law]; or

(G) [Any other appropriate persons specified by state law.]

Under such a regime, a doctor, nurse, dentist, optometrist, or EMT might be able to petition the court to strip an individual’s Second Amendment rights regardless of how fleeting their interaction with the respondent may have been or whether or not they have any mental health assessment training.

Worse, the Biden administration endorses granting any school employee a veto on a student’s right to keep and bear arms up to two years after they were enrolled. Consider the danger of empowering one of the most partisan left-wing occupational fields to adjudicate millions of current and former students’ Second Amendment rights.

Dangerous Confrontations Between Citizens and Police

The Biden gun confiscation order legislation would create confrontations between armed individuals in their homes and the law enforcement officers tasked with disarming them. The problem is potentially even more acute in the ex parte context, where the arrival of an officer may be the individual’s first notice that their rights have been abrogated.

At 5:17 a.m. on November 5, 2018, police served a “Red Flag” protective order at the home of 60-year-old Gary J. Willis in Anne Arundel, Md.  According to the Baltimore Sun, Willis brought a firearm when he answered the early morning knock at his door. The confrontation ultimately ended with police shooting and killing Willis in his own home.

Confiscation of Non-Prohibited Persons’ Guns

The Biden gun confiscation order legislation contemplates the confiscation of all firearms in a location which a respondent has access to, regardless of whether those firearms are owned by the respondent.

The Biden legislation provides,

(1) If the evidence presented at the hearing establishes probable cause that the respondent has access to a firearm, on his or her person or in an identified place, the court shall concurrently issue a warrant authorizing a law enforcement agency to search the person of the respondent and any such place for firearms and to seize any firearm therein to which the respondent would have access.

(3) If the owner of a firearm seized pursuant to this subsection is a person other than the respondent, the owner may secure the prompt return of the firearm by providing an affidavit to the law enforcement agency affirming his or her ownership of the firearm and providing assurance that he or she will safeguard the firearm against access by the respondent.  The law enforcement agency shall return the firearm to the owner upon its confirmation, including by a check of the National Instant Criminal Background Check System and the applicable state firearm background check system, that the owner is not legally disqualified from possessing or receiving the firearm.

The legislation anticipates that law enforcement would be empowered to confiscate firearms owned by individuals who are not covered by a confiscation order. The legislation places no burden on law enforcement to determine whether the firearms at a location accessed by the respondent are in fact the respondent’s property. To add further insult, those whose firearms are erroneously confiscated would be required to undergo an FBI background check before the return of their lawful property.

No Solid Evidence Supporting Biden’s Gun Confiscation Legislation

In a “commentary” released alongside the draft Biden gun confiscation order legislation, the DOJ pronounced, “research has shown that states can save lives by authorizing courts to issue [gun confiscation orders].” In reality, research on the effectiveness of gun confiscation order laws has been limited.

Research does show that the absence of due process has practical consequences for those wrongfully targeted under gun confiscation orders. Connecticut adopted an ex parte gun confiscation order procedure in 1999. An examination of the law found that 32 percent of ex parte orders issued in Connecticut were overturned following a hearing.

The RAND Corporation conducted a comprehensive study that surveyed the available research on several gun control policies. As part of the study, RAND researchers sought to determine “How Extreme Risk Protection Orders Affect Gun Use Outcomes.” The study stated, “We found no qualifying studies showing that extreme risk protection orders decreased any of the eight outcomes we investigated.” The “gun use outcomes” studied included “violent crime” and “suicide.”

The draft Biden gun confiscation order legislation is an overt attack on the Second Amendment and the due process rights that protect all Americans, regardless of whether they own firearms.

Attorney-General Garland appears all too willing to selectively undermine civil rights by executive fiat at Biden’s request. However, gun owners can strike a blow against Biden’s executive gun control efforts by denying him his choice to lead ATF – longtime anti-gun activist David Chipman.

Please contact both of your United States Senators and ask them to vote against David Chipman.

“It’s like Gitmo:” Capitol demonstrators treated like third-world terrorists in DC jail where they are brutalized, terrorized, and locked in cells for days at a time

Rumble — Real America - Dan W/ Trial Lawyer & Attorney representing Jan. 6th Protestors, John Pierce (June 7, 2021):

BY J.D. HEYES

SEE: https://www.naturalnews.com/2021-06-07-like-gitmo-capitol-demonstrators-treated-like-terrorists.html;

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

(Natural News) Many Americans have long thought the reason why problems like sanctuary cities, open borders, homelessness, mass migration and crime often go unsolved by our elected leaders is because they are out of touch and unaffected by those problems.

There is no better example of this than the fallout for Jan. 6 demonstrators, many of whom were merely tourists entering the building to look around.

No, what happened at the Capitol Building earlier this year wasn’t an “insurrection.” It wasn’t an act of “sedition.” It wasn’t a “revolt.” It wasn’t “domestic terrorism.” It was just a protest, and the average supporters of former President Donald Trump who got swept up in the moment thanks to the trained agitators working the false flag event were never hunting for lawmakers and weren’t out to kill anyone.DC

And yet, that’s how they’re being treated so the Biden regime and its Department of Injustice can justify arresting as many of those people as possible and then locking them up in the famously atrocious DC Jail — for months and months at a time, without the possibility of bail (while they’re pushing policies in other cities that see far more dangerous criminals back out on the street without having to worry about posting bond).

Bottom line: When BLM and Antifa were actually rioting and those incidents were occurring far away from them, Democrats had no problems with it. In fact, they supported those riots. But when a riot hit very close to home, they got scared, then they got angry, and now they’re out for revenge.

So much for what remained of our criminal justice system.

The UK’s Daily Mail reports:

The Washington D.C. Jail – where dozens of Capitol [demonstrators] are housed before their trials — is like ‘Guantanamo Bay’, a lawyer representing one of the protestors told DailyMail.com. 

The suspects are held in solitary confinement in cells the ‘size of walk-in closets’ for up 24 hours a day and treated like ‘domestic terrorists’ by jail guards after several law enforcement officers were injured and killed during the January 6 violence at the Capitol, lawyer Joseph McBride said. 

McBride, who represents Richard ‘Bigo’ Barnett, 60, of Arkansas — the man known for putting his feet up on Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s desk- – claimed that the guards are ‘roughing up’ the siege suspects to show solidarity with law enforcement who protected the Capitol.

First of all, while there were officers injured Jan. 6, none died on Jan. 6. Officer Brian Sicknick died a day after the protest, and likely from a preexisting condition, not from being bludgeoned with a fire extinguisher, as the lying mainstream media reported for days (obviously without verification). Two others who died killed themselves in the aftermath. But one person did die the day of the riot: Unarmed Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt, who was shot and killed by a Capitol Police officer whose identity we still don’t know.

“The DC Central Detention Facility has become Guantanamo Bay for American Citizens,” McBride told the outlet. “In the eyes of the Federal Government, the 2021 Trump supporter is the 2001 religious Muslim. This is demonstrated by the fact that Trump Supporters, type cast as extremists, are being illegally detained pretrial by the United States Government.”

The first suspects were rounded up and placed behind bars within a few weeks of the riot; many of them are still locked up, having been denied bail. That means they have been in jail (five months) longer than other people who have committed far worse crimes (and certainly a lot longer than most all of the BLM and Antifa rioters of last summer and fall).

McBride said brutish DC jail guards told the “1/6ers” that “the world hates them” and “they’ll be forgotten.” Guards have also told the riot suspects “they’ll spend the rest of their lives in here,” which is the kind of blatant psychological torture used by third-world (or in China’s case, first-world) dictatorships.

So much for the Eighth Amendment’s protections against cruel and unusual punishment; the Constitution obviously doesn’t apply to Trump supporters.

BREAKING: Emergency Motion Filed for Release of Cancer Patient Who Contracted COVID While Being Held in Jail Over Capitol Protest — Life Seriously at Risk

BY CASSANDRA FAIRBANKS

SEE: https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2021/05/breaking-emergency-motion-filed-release-cancer-patient-contracted-covid-held-jail-capitol-protest-life-seriously-risk/

EXCERPTS: 

The attorney for Capitol protester Christopher Worrell has filed another emergency motion with the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals seeking the release of his client, who has cancer, after he contracted COVID-19 in the jail where he is being detained.

Worrell has been held for over two months after firing pepper spray during the chaos on January 6, which he says was aimed at people who he believed to be Antifa that were targeting police.

Worrell has been denied bail since March 12 — and has been shipped around from Florida, to Oklahoma, to Virginia, and now finally DC. He has been subjected to horrific conditions including a lack of water for sometimes up to seven hours and contracted COVID on top of his non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma cancer. 

The proud and patriotic American is now severely at risk of dying from COVID or metastasizing cancer advancing while being denied bail.

“Mr. Worrell is currently held in pretrial detainment without access to his prescribed cancer medication, or the regular examination and treatment necessary for someone with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. He is experiencing a rapidly deteriorating condition as he develops lymphomas on the skin of his face, neck, back, arms, and legs putting him at great risk for further complications and COVID-19 exposure. Mr. Worrell is allegedly one of the thousands of individuals who went to the grounds of the U.S. Capitol Complex on January 6, 2021 to exercise his First Amendment rights,” the motion states.

“Mr. Worrell has suffered aggravating symptoms of his cancer, including lymphomas of the skin on his face. The lesions are often itchy, scaly, and red to purple – appearing in different parts of the skin and increase Mr. Worrell’s COVID infection risk,” the motion says.

So, when will the Feds raid Fauci’s home as part of a criminal investigation?

(Natural News) There is a good chance that Anthony Fauci is currently under criminal investigation, which begs the question: When will his house be raided by the Feds like Roger Stone’s was?

During a recent segment of his Fox News show, host Tucker Carlson revealed that some of Fauci’s emails obtained via Freedom of Information Act Request (FOIA) bear redactions that suggest he could be the subject of a criminal inquiry – which he clearly should be.

Fauci is a career criminal and a fraud, and millions of people are now dead because of what he has done. The world is rapidly figuring this out, finally, but we wonder if true justice will ever be served?

While many mistakenly believed that Fauci was here to help us stay “safe” against the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19), the reality is that Fauci is the reason why we were plagued with it in the first place.

As Carlson puts it, Fauci is “just another sleazy federal bureaucrat” who is “deeply political and often dishonest.” This is probably too kind, as Fauci seems to always be dishonest.

Thanks to Buzzfeed, of all places, we now know that Fauci lied about the origins of the Chinese Virus, lied about his involvement in its creation, lied about hydroxychloroquine, lied about face masks, lied about lockdowns, and lied about vaccines.

There is pretty much nothing that Fauci told the truth about this past year, which resulted in business failures, economic collapse, millions of deaths and societal chaos. Fauci really did play the role of the grim reaper in 2020.

The world deserves to see justice delivered to Fauci

Fauci also lied about gain of function research, which he offshored to Wuhan after it was banned here in the United States. He also covered for Ralph Baric, Peter Daszak, Bill Gates and other co-conspirators concerning their involvement in the scheme.

Fauci ruined so many lives this past year with his lies that many are calling for swift and appropriate justice. Perhaps that justice is soon to come.

What Fauci has done is nothing short of treason against the United States, and against humanity at large. The guy is a villain of the worst kind, and he must be held accountable for his actions.

To call him a “doctor” is remiss, which is why this writer never refers to him as such. Fauci is a con man and someone who absolutely cannot be trusted, especially in matters of life and death.

Still, there are some out there who believe that Fauci should be thanked for his contributions to the plandemic. There are some who believe that Fauci is some kind of savior, despite what has been revealed.

“Tony Fauci is no longer a scientist, assuming he ever was one,” Carlson says. “Tony Fauci is a figure of religious veneration. He is ‘Jesus’ for people who don’t believe in God.”

The jig is up, though. Fauci is done. He will never again hold a position like he currently does, and if there is anything decent and right still left in the world, he will soon be behind bars – at best.

Fauci lied under oath on numerous occasions concerning his involvement in creating and fomenting the spread of the Wuhan Flu. Were it not for his existence, there probably never would have been a Chinese Virus in the first place.

“At this point … we do know that Fauci hasn’t simply lied about the origins of COVID, pretending to know things he could not know,” Carlson added during the segment. “He has also lied about vaccines in key ways,” denying the existence of natural immunity.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Slams Democrat Bill to Destroy Police While Embracing Antifa

BY RENEE NAL

SEE: https://rairfoundation.com/rep-marjorie-taylor-greene-slams-democrat-bill-to-destroy-police-while-embracing-antifa-video/;

“If you don’t fund law enforcement, you’re funding criminals.”

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene delivered a jaw-dropping speech exposing America’s “two-track justice system”, as well as the disastrous anti-police legislation H.R.1280.

The speech, delivered in the House of Representatives on May 20, slams the double standard of the treatment of January 6th protestors versus the violent Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioters.

“If you’re part of the democrat-sponsored democrat terrorist organization B.L.M. and antifa,” she said, “[Y]ou can burn down American cities for an entire year, get bailed out of jail, and face no investigation or commission from congress.”

The Two-Track Justice System

As reported extensively at RAIR Foundation USA, the damage done during the riots last year was incalculable. Rep. Taylor Greene detailed much of the damage during her presentation.

“Rioters did a horrific and jaw-dropping amount of damage to cities across America,” MTG said in part. “During 2020, there was up to $2 billion in damage due to the riots that swept the nation. The most expensive in insurance history,” she continued.

By contrast, many individuals in Washington, D.C. on January 6th have been hunted, imprisoned and placed in solitary confinement for simply wandering into the Capitol building through open doors. It should be noted that federal and state buildings are often targets for violent leftist agitators, but they are largely ignored and certainly not referred to as “insurrectionists”.

“Meanwhile,” MTG continued, “if you’re a Trump supporter who happened to be at the Capitol on January 6, you face exorbitant bail, solitary confinement, abusive jail guards, and no due process.”

As RAIR observed on January 9th, “If citizens do not push back against these political arrests, they will only continue and get worse.”

Anti-Police Legislation

As reported at RAIR, the unconstitutional “George Floyd Justice in Policing Act” would cripple police officers and empower criminals.

Rep. Taylor Greene said that H.R. 1280 will remove “qualified immunity” for police. She explained how devastating this could be:

That means police officers can be sued if someone is upset with them for their actions on the job. Police officers don’t make a lot of money. They can’t afford big attorney bills. It will ruin them. Just because someone may get their feelings hurt because they got arrested. H.R. 1280 also will allow police officers to be put on a list.

That means if it’s proven or unproven, someone can accuse a police officer of doing some sort of wrong and their name and information gets put on a public list that the department of justice will manage on a website that’s open to anyone that wants to look it up. Founded or unfounded, their actions, no matter if it’s true or not, their name goes on this list and what they’re being accused of.

Watch:

 

Transcript:

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Oh, is this one on? Yes. Mr. Speaker, I’d like to address the two-track justice system here in the united states. If you’re part of the democrat-sponsored democrat terrorist organization B.L.M. and antifa, you can burn down American cities for an entire year, get bailed out of jail, and face no investigation or commission from congress.

Meanwhile, if you’re a Trump supporter who happened to be at the Capitol on January 6, you face exorbitant bail, solitary confinement, abusive jail guards, and no due process. This is an outrage. Just today, just this week, congress told all of the American citizens that congress cares more about congress than the American people.

After all, we have witnessed American cities all over our country be victims to violent riots by domestic terrorists all over this country. The people have endured this. Businesses have been destroyed. Violence has happened. Police officers night after night have been abused, have had to endure these violent riots, attacks on and on.

But yet, this institution has been focused on itself and focused on investigating January 6, even though there are many investigations already happening here through the senate and the house committees. There have already been over 445 people arrested from January 6. There are also more than 100 to be arrested soon. There is justice happening for the riot here at the capitol on january 6.

Republicans and Democrats together are against the violence and the riot that happened here in the capitol on January 6. But the problem lies with this — republicans and democrats are not together on the violence that’s happened to the people all over this country throughout the past year.

And that’s why congress is only concerned with itself and not about the American people. Rioters did a horrific and jaw-dropping amount of damage to cities across America. During 2020, there was up to $2 billion in damage due to the riots that swept the nation. The most expensive in insurance history.

By the way, that’s not a $2 billion bailout fund coming from the government. That’s not a taxpayer-funded check. That’s private money. That’s private money that insurance companies are having to pay because domestic terrorists rioted.

The damage done to federal buildings is costly. B.L.M. In Nashville set a federal courthouse on fire. It cost $1.2 million in damages. This is a federal courthouse. Why were those involved attacking and setting fire to this federal courthouse not called insurrectionists? It’s a question that needs to be asked.

Rioters in Portland destroyed barriers and attempted to burn down government buildings causing $1.6 million in damage to the federal courthouse downtown. See. Why is this not called an insurrection? And again, why is congress not concerned with creating a commission for this type of damage and the people that caused this attack?

And in North Carolina, a courthouse was broken into and set on fire resulting in roughly $200,000 in damages. Again, it’s a courthouse, why is that not called an insurrection? And there’s not a government bailout or a commission in place to investigate these things.

Los Angeles, Oakland, Louisville and Dakota City also had damage to federal buildings. These cities are not being named. Members of congress are not demanding a commission to investigate the damages happening to the federal buildings in these cities? No one is being called insurrectionists for the damage done to these federal buildings?

Most of the time if you watch the news, they are called peaceful protestors. These are not peaceful protests. These are violent domestic acts of terror and this is how they should be viewed and handled. The looting, burning and destruction across America have cost cities millions and millions of dollars.

Riots caused an estimated $55 million in damage in Minneapolis alone. Minneapolis city officials estimate 700 buildings were damaged, burned or destroyed, including, 360 local businesses. And I have an article right here that contains a list of 1,500 businesses that were damaged or destroyed. 1,500 businesses.

By the way, it’s these businesses and these business owners that pay the taxes that fund everything that we do here. These people should matter. Their businesses should matter. Why is there not a commission investigating this? Why doesn’t congress care about these people and their businesses?

Rioters in Portland set up an autonomous zone and cost the city $2.3 million in damages. Autonomous zone? What is an autonomous zone? How can people take over an American city and say it is theirs and that they control it and that no government authority can come in and enforce the law, enforce law and order in this part of the city. But this is what happened with peaceful protestors in Portland. They created an autonomous zone costing the taxpayers of Portland $2.3 million in damages. Again, that was not a bailout fund. Those are people’s actual dollars, private citizens’ dollars.

Riots in New York are estimated to have cost the city $115 million. One Friday night alone cost the city $100,000 and resulted in the arrest of 150 rioters. That was in one night. It’s unbelievable. Riots in Salt lake city cost $100,000 in damages. Riots in Wichita, Kansas cost the police department nearly $1.5 million in overtime. Because they had to work. They had to show up for another shift. When they were exhausted from working the shift before. So they had to be paid overtime because they were overrun with rioters.

Riots in Denver cost the city at least $5.5 million in damages and in overtime. This is unbelievable where antifa, B.L.M. Rioters causing so much violence in a city that these police departments are having to call police officers back in after working their shift, long hours, no, I’m sorry, you can’t go to your family and do things that you need to do in your regular life. We need you to come back and work overtime because our city is overrun with violence.

But yet here, the United States congress, the 117th congress has no interest in launching a commission to investigate, to stop these incredibly organized and well-funded organizations of terror across the American cities in the country that is causing private citizens, businesses, insurance companies, cities, counties and states so much money?

It all comes from American citizens and taxpayers. You know, money is not created right here in congress. This is not a facility, not an institution that creates revenue. The only revenue that congress operates on is the American people’s tax dollars that they have to pay right here to the federal government.

Congress needs to learn to put the people first and not itself. Riots in Baltimore cost the city an estimated $26 million. Again, American taxpayer dollars. Riots in Kansas city resulted in $2.1 million in damages. Mostly over the course of just one weekend. That’s some kind of party, isn’t it where antifa and B.L.M. Terrorists can go out and riot in violence and rage in one weekend costing the city $1.2 million.

Rioters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, set off fireworks near the police and courthouse and set two city trucks on fire. Altogether, the destruction cost the city $50 million. Does anyone understand what $50 million is? That is an exorbitant amount of money in damages for people that were angry and think it’s OK to riot and destroy other peoples’ properties and businesses and tear down a community. There’s no excuse for that.

Here we have California close down all of its state buildings in downtown areas that staff should not report to work for any reason. That sounds like a third-world country where you have California closing its state buildings in downtown areas saying your staff should not report to work for any reason, why? Because it’s too dangerous for you.

Yet this congress is concerned about spending money on a January 6 commission, when there is already multiple investigations underway. There’s already been 445 arrests already made, 100 more to take place, but yet this congress is not concerned about all of the violence and the organizations that caused all of this to the point where California has to say don’t come to work, it’s dangerous? It’s unreal. This is our country.

The police officers who defend Americans paid a great price as well. Just like the Capitol police officers here in the Capitol did. The police officers all over the country in American cities, it just didn’t happen to them on one day or part of the day. It happened to them night after night, day after day continuously.

In some cities, for a short time, weeks, but in some cities, months and months. And it still continues. The major cities chief association found between May 25 and July 31, there were 8,700 protests nationwide. 8,700. How many were there on January 6? One. Nearly 600 of those protests were declared riots with violence and criminal acts and 2,385 looting incidents were reported. 600 of them were declared violent riots. 2,385 looting incidents.

Again how many times did that happen here at the Capitol? We’ll go with one riot. But this congress is more interested in spending an unknown amount of money to investigate one riot here because this congress seems to only care about itself and not the American people. Three-quarters of law enforcement agencies reported officers harmed during the protests, three-quarters of law enforcement agencies, why don’t we hear about them over and over on the news? Does no one care about those police officers’ lives? Apparently not.

This congress obviously doesn’t. More than 624 Arizonans were reported in and 97 police vehicles were burned. Do you know whose money that is? Taxpayers’ dollars that did nothing wrong to deserve these riots in their cities and the police officers that do a good job every day don’t deserve it either just because of the actions of a few bad a.M. Himself. The ncaa reported that over 2 ,000 law enforcement officers were injured in these nine weeks alone. This is why I introduced h.R. 2446 to award police all over the country who defended american cities, they deserve medals. They deserve medialities because no one is acknowledging what they have gone through night after night day after day with what cnn calls peaceful protests. I don’t think so.

B.L.M. and antifa domestic terrorists are bailed out and supported by our new vice president Harris. George Floyd died on May 25 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. As you see here on June 1, we have been senator Kamala Harris and then vice-presidential candidate for the united states sharing, tweeting to the Minnesota Freedom Fund encouraging people, if you are able, chip in now, chip in now. Spend some more money to the Minnesota freedom fund to help post bail for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota. But yet we know what was going on. These were not protests but violent riots.

I’m sorry, you can’t stand in front of a city on fire and people fighting and say it’s a protest, it’s a riot and it’s not peaceful. Kamala Harris and unfortunately my own colleague from Minneapolis, representative Omar shared links to the Minnesota Freedom Fund with their millions of Twitter followers, and you know what? It raised a lot of money. In August the Minnesota Freedom Fund reported that it raised $35 million in donations.

Yes, when the democratic candidate for vice president of the United States says ‘Donate to the Minnesota Freedom Fund,’ people donated. When the congresswoman from Minneapolis, Minnesota, shared on her twitter to millions of followers and said, point it down, meaning follow suit, donate.

Guess what? They raised $35 million. And guess what happened from that. As a result of all the money raised by then-senator Kamala Harris and then the democrat vice president of the United States, now our current vice president and current congresswoman from Minneapolis, Minnesota, 184 domestic terrorist criminals that rioted, 184 of them were bailed out from the Minnesota Freedom Fund.

The criminals they helped bail out include a woman who shot at the S.W.A.T. Team. . . Another woman who was accused of killing her own friend and a convicted rapist. That’s a few of the people bailed out with the money raised directly for the Minnesota Freedom Fund by then-senator Kamala Harris and congresswoman Ilhan Omar. Shared on their own twitter pages. Can you imagine if a republican congresswoman or man or a republican senator or president shared a bail bond link and said, bail out the protesters from January 6, can you imagine the result of that? It would be unreal.

There has been no backlash. There have been no consequences. There has been no action taken from this responsibility supporting domestic terrorists who were responsible for crime and costing innocent American people an exorbitant amount of money, stress, ruining communities, ruining people’s livelihoods, and tearing apart our country. No. No accountability whatsoever.

The criminals — excuse me — these democrat lawmakers have also voted for defunding police departments across the country. So while they also raise money for domestic terrorists committing crimes to be bailed out of jail, at the same time they legislate and vote to defund police. H.R. 1280 that they voted for and passed removed qualified immunity, removed qualified immunity.

That means police officers can be sued if someone is upset with them for their actions on the job. Police officers don’t make a lot of money. They can’t afford big attorney bills. It will ruin them. Just because someone may get their feelings hurt because they got arrested. H.R. 1280 also will allow police officers to be put on a list.

That means if it’s proven or unproven, someone can accuse a police officer of doing some sort of wrong and their name and information gets put on a public list that the department of justice will manage on a website that’s open to anyone that wants to look it up. Founded or unfounded, their actions, no matter if it’s true or not, their name goes on this list and what they’re being accused of.

This is what these people voted for to do to police officers and remove a lot of their funding. After the LAPD was defunded by $150 million, vice president Harris said, I applaud Eric Garcetti for doing what he’s done. As a result of the funding cuts, the LAPD dissolved its sexual assault unit.

Defunding the LAPD where they have to get rid of the sexual assault unit, that’s unbelievable. That means women, children, any victim of sexual assault, I’m sorry, there’s not a unit there to help them anymore because they’ve been defunded.

As a result of this defunding that vice president Harris applauds Eric Garcetti for doing what he’s done, there’s been a 73% spike in shootings in l.A. 73%. When you defund the police, ladies and gentlemen, there are direct consequences. That means crime goes up. There’s also been a 200% higher murder rate than last year at the same time. 200%.

If you don’t fund law enforcement, you’re funding criminals. And clearly, we can see this is what some of these democrat lawmakers — lawmakers have done. They’ve clearly funded criminals and defunded the police. Back to Minneapolis and the right outs there — riots there. Notice that this state, 11 — notice this date, 11/4/20. That’s not too long ago. Encouraging donations. See, there’s no excuse for that. November 4, 2020. By that date we had seen plenty of violence and damage all over the streets.

There was no way to call those riots peaceful protests. We know exactly what they are. Domestic acts of terror. And congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s district, 700 buildings were damaged, burned or destroyed. Who owns those buildings? Mostly private citizens. 1,500 businesses — here’s the list. Here’s the list. It’s reported from the “Star Tribune” from Minneapolis for the Twin Cities, 1,500 privately owned businesses, heavily damaged, two destroyed, mostly completely destroyed.

The problem with congress is, congress does not get up early every single day, go into its business and have to earn the money that keeps it going. Congress does not have to work so hard, lose sleep at night to figure out how to earn the money to keep the doors open to their business.

Congress does not have to lose sleep at night when things get rough like when the government shuts down the economy because of a Chinese Virus and tells businesses that they cannot keep their door open and sell their goods and services, that they cannot earn a living.

You see, congress doesn’t understand how hard it is to figure out how to keep paying your employees when that happens to you. And congress doesn’t understand or seem to care about doing a commission for the people that pay the taxes to keep the lights on in this building, to care about them and why they were violently attacked.

No. Only congress cares about itself and why it was attacked on January 6, even though there are multiple investigations going on. Even though there have been 445 people arrested and 100 people more arrested. And justice should be served for those that committed violence here at the capitol on January 6. But congress doesn’t care about the American people that have suffered this entire year. And it’s despicable. The human cost of a year of riots and violence is 25 American lives lost. That’s been estimated. 25 Americans are dead as a direct result of B.L.M. And antifa terrorism that swept our nation.

I’ll go ahead and tell you about one. This little girl, her name is Secoriea Turner. She was killed at a Wendy’s in Atlanta because there were riots going on. Her mother was pulling in the Wendy’s, turning around, trying to go the right way when gunshots were fired that took Secoria Turner’s life. She was 8 years old. This little girl was 8 years old and was murdered during a riot.

There’s not a commission being launched in here for her life. There’s also not a commission being launched for the life of David Dorn. A great man. A retired police officer who was murdered during domestic terrorist, B.L.M., riots. Why does congress not care about David Dorn? Why does congress not care about Secoriea Turner?

Despite all of this damage, there is no investigation into domestic terrorism from congress. We have no commission launched to investigate the funding of antifa. There’s no investigation into the funding of B.L.M. There’s no commission set forward for the past year of violent riots. But all they care about is the commission for the one riot here on January 6.

The accused on January 6 have been — they’ve been abused behind bars. They’ve been denied due process rights. They’re still being held in jail. Michael Sherwin from D.C. bragged they rounded up 400 people who participated in the breach of the capitol on January 6. He said he wanted to charge as many people as possible. What kind of justice system do we have if officials are eager to charge as many people as possible but they don’t care about antifa domestic terrorists and they don’t care about the people in those riots?

The Biden administration has taken investigators who normally work on drug trafficking, child pornography, and assigned them to calling relatives and even ex-girlfriends of the January 6 accused and attempt to find them guilty. Please put them back on drug trafficking and child pornography.

These departments are being defunded anyways. One person accused faces seven years in prison for walking through the open doors of the capitol, taking photos in the hallway and leaving without doing any harm. Even the mainstream media outlets outlets have reported on D.C. Jail guards cruel beating trump supporters. One man was beaten so badly he has a skull fracture and is now blind in one eye. You hardly hear about that on the news. Months after January 6, men and women are still being held in jail, and they haven’t seen their day in court.

Justice should be served for January 6, but this congress needs to care about the people of the united states who have not seen justice for the riots of the past year. This congress is failing the American people. Not only are we a nation nearly $30 trillion in debt, but we have a congress that could care less about law and order and the united states. I yield the remainder of my time.

Ashli Babbitt’s Family Sues D.C. Cops to Learn the Identity of Her Killer

The family of Ashli Babbitt is suing Washington, D.C.’s Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) to learn the identity of the officer who fatally shot Babbitt in the Capitol on January 6.

Court documents show that the plaintiff, Aaron Babbitt, filed the lawsuit on April 21, 2021. Under Washington code, the MPD was supposed to produce the requested information or prove that the department is legally exempt from doing so within 15 days. As of June 4, the department has yet to do either.

Aaron Bobbitt’s attorney, Terrell Roberts, stated the problem with the lawsuit is that Capitol Police are not subject to the law regarding the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

“The complication here is that the Capitol Police are not subject to FOIA. However, they used the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia to conduct their investigation,” Roberts explained. “In other words, the United States Attorney’s Office did a criminal investigation and relied upon the Metropolitan Police Department to conduct their factual investigation. And so now that they’ve decided against bringing charges I am going to seek any kind of records that they may have collected in their investigation, including any records which identify the officer.”

The Department of Justice (DOJ) decided not to press charges against the Capitol Police officer who shot the unarmed Babbitt as she was attempting to climb through a broken window to get into the House speaker’s lobby, stating, “Based on that investigation, officials determined that there is insufficient evidence to support a criminal prosecution.”

Roberts alleges that the officer who killed Babbitt didn’t give her a verbal warning before fatally shooting her with one shot to the neck.

We have seen plenty of shootings where the identity of the cops involved in a shooting are known immediately, including the shootings of young teens like Tamir Rice and Adam Toledo (Rice was holding a pellet gun and Toledo was holding a real one). Personally, I can’t recall a shooting where we didn’t learn the name of the officer involved except for Babbitt’s killer.

Babbitt’s killing seems even harsher knowing that almost half of the Seattle rioters had their federal charges dropped — charges including arson and assault against cops. Ashli Babbitt didn’t start a fire or throw rocks at police officers but a mysterious cop who won’t be named or charged decided lethal force was necessary.

UK: Rotherham police only secured charges in 1 out of 34 Muslim rape gang cases

There has been no justice for these victims, only politically correct maneuvering by authorities in Britain’s so-called justice system, which appears to be primarily interested in protecting Muslim perpetrators. The intent has been to avoid the label of “Islamophobia” and provide cover for these mostly Pakistani Muslim men. As a result, they continue to escape justice, and are given the green light to continue “grooming” infidel girls. It has also been happening to Sikh girls for decades.

The Network of Sikh Organisations “called on the media to stop referring to grooming gangs that are predominantly comprised of perpetrators from a Pakistani Muslim Pakistani as ‘Asian’, which inaccurately incorporates much of the British Hindu and Sikh communities.”

“Rotherham Police Secure Charges in Only 1-in-34 Child Sex Abuse Cases,” by Jack Montgomery, Breitbart, May 31, 2021:

The British police force which oversaw the Rotherham “grooming gangs” child rape scandal is securing charges for just one in 34 crimes flagged as having links to Child Sexual Exploitation, it has been revealed.

All told, South Yorkshire Police secured just 16 charges out of some 540 crimes officers flagged as Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) related, according to data secured by The Times through the Freedom of Information Act.

West Midlands Police, which has been slated for a wide variety of so-called “grooming” gang failures over the years, disclosed an only marginally less embarrassing figure of one in 28 offences linked to Child Sexual Exploitation resulting in a charge.

Across all 34 police forces which responded to the Freedom of Information requests from The Times, the average number of crimes flagged as having CSE links which “resulted in a charge or summons” was a mere one in 14.

“The low charge rate staggers me. My concern is that known perpetrators are slipping through the net. We need absolutely zero tolerance for this crime,” commented Sarah Champion, a Member of Parliament for the left-wing Labour party whose frontbench career as a shadow government minister was swiftly ended after she wrote an article saying that “Britain has a problem with British Pakistani men raping and exploiting white girls.”

“We will actively continue to investigate all CSE reports and take any action possible to prosecute and disrupt the perpetrators who commit these despicable acts,” claimed South Yorkshire Police in a statement quoted by The Times, in defiance of what appears to be statistical evidence to the contrary.

Less than a week ago, The Times reported on internal reports which found there is “little evidence of the exploiters being investigated” by West Yorkshire Police, with South Yorkshire Police being one of a number of forces refusing to disclose the findings of internal reports on their handling of child sexual abuse cases….

BLM Founder Patrisse Cullors, Marxist Abolitionist She doesn’t want to just defund the police — she wants to abolish them.

BY PAUL KENGOR

SEE: https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2021/06/blm-founder-patrisse-cullors-marxist-abolitionist-paul-kengor/;

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

Black Lives Matter founder Patrisse Cullors has been in the news a lot lately because of controversy over her income and financial dealings, including recent purchases of several new homes. Cullors lashed out at these criticisms by protesting, “The fact that the right-wing media is trying to create hysteria around my spending is, frankly, racist and sexist.”

The fact is that Cullors’ own organization has demanded answers. Hawk Newsome, head of Black Lives Matter Greater New York City, called for “an independent investigation” of Cullors. “If you go around calling yourself a socialist, you have to ask how much of her own personal money is going to charitable causes,” says Newsome. “It’s really sad because it makes people doubt the validity of the movement and overlook the fact that it’s the people that carry this movement.… We need black firms and black accountants to go in there and find out where the money is going.”

But another particularly striking Cullors revelation of late has gotten almost no publicity. It was flagged for me by Mike Gonzalez, author of an upcoming major new book on BLM. It’s a video by Cullors titled, “What Is Abolition And Am I An Abolitionist?” Posted on her personal YouTube channel, it needs to be widely watched.

In that video, Cullors repeatedly calls herself an “abolitionist.” She talks about her “abolitionist journey” and the “abolitionist future we deserve.” She announces that she’s writing a book titled An Abolitionist Handbook.

Cullors applies her abolitionist goals to police — and not just police but even prisons and jails. She states flatly, “Abolition is the getting rid of police, prisons and jails, surveillance, and courts.”

Yes, the abolition of police, prisons, jails, surveillance, and courts — all part of what Cullors calls the “prison industrial complex.” As many of us have noted, she emphasizes that BLM’s “defund” movement is about literal abolition. That is, not just defunding the police, but abolishing the police. Plus prisons and jails, and now surveillance and courts, too.

In the video, Cullors points to (as she often does) her mentor Angela Davis, whom she hails as a fellow abolitionist, including of prisons. Davis, of course, is America’s best-known female Marxist. In Moscow in 1979, the Soviets (in a hall of entirely white folks) awarded her their prestigious Lenin Prize. Cullors’ memoir opens with a foreword by Davis.

It’s important to pause here to understand something crucial that helps make sense of where Cullors is coming from on this “abolition” theme.

Cullors, of course, is a proud Marxist (see my American Spectator piece “The Politics of Patrisse Cullors”). She describes her “ideological frame” as that of a “trained Marxist organizer” who is “super-versed on ideological theories.” In interviews and in her memoirs, she speaks of her intensive study reading Marx, Lenin, Mao, and other leading Marxists. “We spent the year reading, anything from Marx, to Lenin, to Mao, learning all types of global critical theory,” she said in an April 2018 interview.

Those of us who have repeatedly underscored these significant facts have done so for good reason, namely that when Cullors tells us this about herself, she’s telling us something very instructive. This is her philosophy and her worldview. And utterly essential to the Marxist philosophy and worldview is the notion of abolition.

Karl Marx (and Marxism) was all about abolition. The word is omnipresent throughout his writings. As noted by Marx biographer Robert Payne, the word “abolition” seems to practically jump off every page of the Communist Manifesto. “And after he has ‘abolished’ property, family, and nations, and all existing societies, Marx shows little interest in creating a new society on the ruins of the old,” observed Payne. “The Communist Manifesto was the gauntlet he threw at the world.”

It was indeed. Go online to various writings of Marx and do a search on words like “abolish” and “abolition,” as well as “criticize” and “criticism.” You’ll be struck immediately.

The goal of the Marxist project was one of fundamental transformation, of pursuing permanent revolution and unrestrained criticism of everything — nothing less than what Karl Marx called “the ruthless criticism of all that exists.” Marx in his essay declaring religion “the opium of the people” said that “the criticism of religion is the beginning of all criticism.” In that infamous essay, he used the word “criticism” 29 times.

Marx’s ideas were utterly radical, or (as Marx openly conceded) “contrary to the nature of things.” Above all, Marx in the Manifesto acknowledged that communism seeks to “abolish the present state of things.”

Think about that one: “abolish the present state of things.” Read it again. Say it out loud. What could be more radical, more revolutionary?

For those who think that Marxism was about mere markets and wealth, chew that one over.

Marx in the Manifesto stated that communists “openly declare that their ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions.” Note these words: “forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions.” “All” meant “all.” He and Friedrich Engels closed the Manifesto with this: “Communists everywhere support every revolutionary movement against the existing social and political order of things.”

Quite chillingly, Marx, who wrote about the devil, had a favorite quote from the Mephistopheles (i.e., devil/demon) character in Goethe’s Faust, “Everything that exists deserves to perish.”

Again, chew that over: “Everything that exists deserves to perish.”

That is reckless and irresponsible — as reckless and irresponsible as calling for the abolition of police, prisons, jails, surveillance, and courts.

Above all, Karl Marx, like Patrisse Cullors, was an abolitionist.

Marx and Engels in the Manifesto targeted everything from property to the family to faith. “Abolition of the family!” they wrote with an exclamation. “Even the most radical flare up at this infamous proposal of the communists.” They noted that “Communism abolishes eternal truths, it abolishes all religion, and all morality.”

God has long been a special target for these revolutionaries. To quote Marx’s socialist buddy Mikhail Bakunin from his signature book God and the State: “If God really existed, it would be necessary to abolish him.”

Yes, you read that right: “If God really existed, it would be necessary to abolish him.”

Marx envisioned an apocalyptic revolution leading to the abolition of capitalism, classes, and the state itself. In the process, even democracy (temporary exploited) would be abolished.

Reading all of this closely, of course, was Vladimir Lenin, the totalitarian despot and mass killer that Patrisse Cullors read closely. In his most revealing work, The State and Revolution, Lenin, in his chapter “The Transition from Capitalism to Communism,” quoted Marx and Engels: “the bourgeois state does not ‘wither away,’ but is ‘abolished’ by the proletariat in the course of the revolution.”

That wasn’t the only thing that Lenin and the Bolsheviks sought to abolish. Consider Lenin’s landmark October 2, 1920, speech to the Russian Young Communist League, in which Lenin instructed the 600 assembled delegates in how to “accomplish the task of destroying the foundations of the old.” Lenin said of Marx: “He critically reshaped everything that had been created by human society, without ignoring a single detail. He reconsidered, subjected to criticism, and verified on the working-class movement everything that human thinking had created.” Everything, everything. Among them, the “old schools” would need to be abolished. “The old schools produced servants needed by the capitalists,” sniffed Lenin. “We must therefore abolish them.”

The new “aim,” Lenin told young communists, was simple: “learn communism.” He told the youth, “You have to build up a communist society,” and “every young man and woman” must proceed in that task without exception. “You must train yourselves to be communists.” As for “the old society,” said Lenin, “We had to destroy all that, and overthrow them.” This meant “overthrowing the tsar, overthrowing the capitalists, and abolishing the capitalist class.”

Abolish, abolish, abolish. Lenin, too, was an abolitionist. Communism required a constant process of abolition.

In short, the notion of abolition dominates Marxist thoughts and writings. Marxists are abolitionists. And, not surprisingly, so is Patrisse Cullors, as she tells us in this new video and upcoming book.

So, when you hear Patrisse Cullors, founder of BLM, talking about “abolishing the police” — and, more so, “getting rid of” prisons and jails and surveillance and courts—and when you hear her calling herself a trained and studied and committed Marxist, you need to understand that the Marxism is not unrelated. For those liberals who shrug off the fact that Cullors is a Marxist, well, you have a lot to learn.

And above all, most disturbing is what this says about the destructive roots of the “abolish the police” movement that Patrisse Cullors and BLM have inspired. The Marxism matters.

DHS Secretary Mayorkas Cancels Agreement to Arrest Illegal-alien Criminals

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has ended his department’s 287(g) agreement with Bristol County, Massachusetts. The program trained county law-enforcement personnel how to identify illegal-alien criminals and helped Immigration and Customs Enforcement deport them.

An open-borders subversive born in Red Cuba, Mayorkas acted three months to the day after a letter from Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and other leftist elected officials suggested the move.

Result: Bristol County cops will identify fewer illegal-alien rapists and murderers.

That means fewer violent predators will be deported. So Mayorkas, Warren, and the rest of the subversive gang now running the country will be directly responsible for the crimes these offenders commit.

Free the Criminals

Reporting the news yesterday, Jon Feere of the Center for Immigration Studies disclosed just how important the 287(g) program is to protect Americans from illegal-alien thugs.

“In fiscal year 2020, state and local law enforcement trained under 287(g) encountered approximately 920 aliens convicted for assault, 1,261 convicted for dangerous drugs, 104 convicted for sex offenses/assaults, 377 convicted for obstructing police, 190 convicted for weapon offenses, and 37 convicted for homicide, to name a few crimes,” he reported.

And “as of May 2021, ICE has 287(g) agreements with 71 law enforcement agencies in 21 states. ICE has an additional 76 agreements in 11 states based on a more narrowly-focused version of the program.”

That was irrelevant to Senator Warren and her pals. They were more concerned that the Bristol County sheriff’s deputies roughed up the aggressors in detention.

More concerned about the thugs than the crimes they committed — and what the thugs would have done to Americans if left on the street — the Warren cohort demanded that Mayorkas cancel the program:

On May 1, 2020, there was a violent altercation between Sheriff’s Office personnel and detainees. The incident followed detainees’ expression of concerns about contracting COVID-19 in the facility.

The Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office conducted an investigation of the May 1 incident and made a number of concerning findings including that the Bristol County Sheriff’s Office “violated the civil rights of the detainees on May 1 by using excessive force against the ICE B detainees.…

The Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office recommended that “DHS should terminate its IGSA and 287(g) agreement with the” Bristol County Sheriff’s Office. We agree, and we ask you to implement this recommendation without delay.
