allie beth stuckey interviews rebecca friedrichs: Exposing the Mafia-Like Tactics of Teachers Unions

Today we're talking to Rebecca Friedrichs, a former teacher who now speaks out against the state and national teachers' unions. She provides personal experience and other evidence that the teachers' unions at those levels have been infiltrated by ideological Marxists who want to fundamentally change the United States. They strong-arm their opponents into submission, their ideas on history and sex can hardly be considered "education," and the millions of dollars teachers unions collect in dues each year are more likely to be spent protecting abusive teachers rather than empowering the good ones.

Oregon Communists Brag about ‘Preschool for All’ to Indoctrinate ‘Next Generation of Democratic Socialists’

"Olivia Pace, along with Sahar Yarjani Muranovic and Emily von W. Gilbert — two other Multnomah County activists on behalf of universal preschool — are part of a coalition fighting to transform early childhood education in their community. They have lofty goals, from addressing racial disparities in access to preschool and paying educators a living wage, to helping women stay in the workforce amidst the pandemic."

“…we must begin educating and valuing the input of the next generation of Democratic Socialists.” – DSA Resolution 25: Childcare

The Portland, Oregon branch of America’s largest Marxist organization, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), is bragging about winning “Preschool for All”, a communist program similar to one being proposed by Joe Biden which undermines parental authority and indoctrinates children. The initiative would raise $132 million by taxing households that make over $200k per year, a Leninist strategy.

Socialists have long been promoting “Universal Preschool.” Unsurprisingly, it was reported in July that Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden unveiled a $775 billion plan for “universal preschool, child care and elder care” “that aims to fundamentally shift the way American families care for each other, both at the beginning of life and at the end.” Joe Biden’s unconstitutional effort includes a “public health jobs corps of 100000 people.”

The Universal Preschool campaign in Multnomah County is completely driven by communists, and supported by subversive “progressive” organizations. One of the main organizers of Measure 26-214 in Portland is Emily Von W. Gilbert, a self-described “anti-fascist socialist feminist”.

“At our April 2019 General Meeting, Portland DSA voted to put a measure on the Multnomah County ballot through Oregon’s citizens’ initiative process,” Portland DSA explained in an email sent to supporters on November 21, 2020. “The measure would tax the rich, pay preschool teachers a fair wage, and give preschool to every kid in the county…And on Election Day 2020, we had 64% of the vote and WE WON,” they bragged.

RAIR Foundation USA warned Americans over a year ago about Measure 26-214, which was a part of the larger national DSA resolution #25 to “educate” the “next generation of Democratic Socialists”. Other approved resolutions included solidarity with Cuba and a resolution to work closely with Antifa groups.

From the DSA childcare resolution:

“Socialism recognizes that childrearing should be a communal undertaking, and that by providing welcoming and supportive spaces for children, we can support both those children’s own social, political, and emotional development, along with ameliorating their primary caregivers’ alienation and atomization under capitalism;

Our own organizing spaces must be inclusive, accessible, and welcoming to people of all ages, including families with children, and we must begin educating and valuing the input of the next generation of Democratic Socialists.”

The childhood-robbing initiative was supported by “more than 30 groups, including at least 10 labor organizations: Northwest Oregon Labor Council, PAT, Reynolds Education Association, AFSCME Local 88, UFCW Local 555, ILWU, CWA Local 7901, PSU-AAUP, PCCFAP, and National Association of Letter Carriers Branch 82,” as reported at a newsletter for unions in the northwest.

The parents who will take part in the “Universal Preschool” program in Portland, Oregon are likely unaware of the real goal of “free” childcare.

OREGON, VIRGINIA, CALIFORNIA ENCOURAGING SNITCHERS REPORT PEOPLE & BUSINESSES VIOLATING THEIR ILLEGAL COVID MANDATES

Reinhard Heydrich of the Nazi Police State:

"SNITCHERS GET REWARDS" TAKEN RIGHT FROM HITLER'S PLAYBOOK:

Right out of 1933 Germany,  Hitler’s Third Reich,  – the mayor of Los Angeles encourages the population to rat out on their neighbors. “Snitches get rewards!” 

OREGON GOVERNOR KATE BROWN: 

BY RICK MORAN

Oregon Governor Kate Brown (D) is asking citizens to call the police on neighbors who violate her new lockdown restrictions.

“This is no different than what happens if there’s a party down the street and it’s keeping everyone awake,” Brown said in an interview Friday. “What do neighbors do [in that case]? They call law enforcement because it’s too noisy. This is just like that. It’s like a violation of a noise ordinance.”

No, it’s not “just like that.” Brown’s remark is a clever framing but there’s a huge difference between someone blasting music at 1:00 a.m. and an extended family quietly sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner. Only an authoritarian mind with delusions of control can’t see the difference between violating the law and violating a questionably constitutional edict from the governor.

KGW:

The restrictions, known as a freeze, were implemented this week via an executive order by the governor. For the next two weeks in Oregon, and four weeks in Multnomah County, residents are banned from eating out at restaurants and going to the gym, among other restrictions. Social gatherings in our homes are also limited to no more than six people. Violators could face up to 30 days in jail, $1,250 in fines or both.

Critics of the freeze have called it unconstitutional. Clackamas County Chair-elect Tootie Smith said on FOX News the freeze made Oregonians “second-rate slaves” in their own homes.

The “freeze” — a lockdown by any other name — may itself be unconstitutional as the governor’s decree is being challenged in court. But it’s the limits on family gatherings that have most people riled up. The government of a free society should never be allowed to reach into our homes and tell us what to do. This is so basic to the American character that the Founders included the Third Amendment to the Constitution, assuring citizens that they would be secure in their property.

But this is an emergency! It’s a crisis! It’s..it’s…human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together — mass hysteria! So it’s time to toss the Constitution into the dustbin of history in order to save lives!

There has been some pushback from law enforcement who take a dim view of barging in on people’s holiday meal and arresting them for…something. Governor Brown thinks that it’s all political posturing and no vital, irreplaceable principle is at stake.

“Look, all of this is irresponsible,” Brown said in response to those criticisms. “These are politicians seeking headlines, not public servants, trying to save lives. My top priority as governor is to keep Oregonians healthy and safe. That’s where I’m focused.”

The governor said Friday she’s promoting an “education-first” model, and she hopes enforcement won’t be needed. But she is employing the option in Oregon.

Governor Brown is not promoting an “education-first model” if she’s urging citizens to tattle on their neighbors if they violate her royal decrees. The next step is for Brown to put a bounty on the heads of violators and allow for citizen arrests of the criminals. It won’t slow the pandemic much, but it would be very effective in filling Oregon’s jails with dangerous COVID crooks.

POLICE STATE N.J. Seeks to Mandate LGBT-approved Books

BY ALEX NEWMAN

SEE: https://thenewamerican.com/n-j-seeks-to-mandate-lgbt-approved-books/;

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

Lawmakers in New Jersey are considering legislation that would ban textbooks that are not in a database approved by radical homosexual and transgender activists, sparking alarm about religious liberty and government indoctrination of children.

The proposal, dubbed S1512, would force the state Department of Education to maintain a list of textbook publishers that include “inclusive material” in their products. However, “inclusive material” does not include being inclusive of people of faith who reject LGBT propaganda in the classroom.

Critics blasted the legislation, warning that it threatens religious freedom, strips parental rights, silences First Amendment-protected freedoms, shatters the innocence of children, forces divisive indoctrination into the class, and represents taxation without representation.

Parents and faith leaders are also warning that the legislation would encourage bullying of children who come from Christian, Jewish, and Muslim homes. By teaching that there is something wrong with those who consider homosexuality sinful and believe that there are only two genders, the schools would stigmatize and demonize children from religious homes, critics warned.

Under the bill, local school districts would be stripped of their authority to purchase textbooks that did not include “diversity” in “such areas as gender, … gender identity or expression, and sexual orientation.” In other words, books that do not peddle homosexuality or gender confusion would be banned from school.

“This legislation will force publishing companies and textbook authors to elevate sexual attractions and gender identities in their publications in order to be approved by the state of NJ to sell books to your school district,” explained Director of Advocacy Shawn Hyland with the Family Policy Alliance before urging parents to get involved in the fight.

“Elected school board members, in collaboration with parents serving in curriculum committees, should decide what is best for their community — not the all-encompassing overreach of state government,” Hyland added in an email to activists. “Education is best left to local school boards and parents.”

Conservative grassroots groups across the state are gearing up to fight the bill, too. The Morris Patriots of Northern New Jersey, for instance, sent out an e-mail alert over the weekend including Family Policy Alliance’s warning and urging activists to reach out to legislators to stop the bill before it comes up on November 16 at noon.

“There is no longer religious freedom in NJ when school boards will be mandated to purchase and students will be mandated to read textbooks that normalize LGBTQ behavior,” the Morris Patriots organization said in its mass email encouraging N.J. activists to get involved.

Another group fighting back is Team PYC – Protect Your Children, which has been organizing people of faith all across the state to stand up for religious liberty and against anti-Christian indoctrination in public schools.

In an email about the legislation, Team PYC urged those who value parental rights to prevent the far-left from transforming the state with radical LGBT legislation and tax-funded propaganda targeting children.

The group also warned about another piece of legislation in New Jersey, S2781, set to be considered next month. It would order school districts to “provide instruction” on “diversity” in sexual orientation and gender identity as part of the New Jersey Student Learning Standards in Comprehensive Health and Physical Education.

Among other concerns, Team PYC, which is active across the state, blasted the idea of teaching a 10-year-old child that children should get a sex-change or that it is normal to have “fluid ever-changing sexuality or identity.” And yet that is coming, with these bills paving the way.

“The Inclusion Bill (if passed into law) will mandate changing terms and definitions and that is 100% going against the HOLY WORD of GOD how God has made man and woman, not a combination of the two,” explained Victoria Jakelsky, state director for Team PYC.

The extremism that has engulfed New Jersey schools and lawmakers in recent years is getting worse. And it is hardly limited to New Jersey. The consequences will be devastating. Americans across the nation must take action, or it will be all downhill from here.

POLICE STATE N.J. REP. BILL PASCRELL, JR. says Trump should be tried for ‘crimes against our nation and Constitution’

New Jersey Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr., one of Donald Trump’s fiercest critics on Capitol Hill, is demanding the president and his aides be investigated and prosecuted after they leave office.

Pascrell, D-9th Dist., said late Tuesday that a failure to do so would embolden “criminality by our national leaders” and continue "America down the path of lawlessness and authoritarianism.”

The congressman, re-elected Nov. 3, ticked off a litany of “innumerable crimes” that he said the president should be held accountable for.

“He has endangered our national security,” Pascrell said. “He ripped families apart. He poisoned the Census. He has personally profited from his office. He has attacked our elections and sought to throttle democracy. He was rightly impeached by the House of Representatives. He has engaged in treachery, in treason. He has all but given up on governing and protecting our nation and if he had a shred of dignity he would resign today.”
Pascrell said that the U.S. Justice Department and others should investigate the entire Trump administration next year, and that any effort by the president to pardon his aides should be considered “obstruction of justice” and a self-pardon would be illegal.

“Donald Trump along with his worst enablers must be tried for their crimes against our nation and Constitution,” Pascrell said. “Failure to hold financial and political wrongdoing accountable

in the past has invited greater malfeasance by bad actors. A repeat of those failures in 2021 further emboldens criminality by our national leaders and continues America down the path of lawlessness and authoritarianism. There must be accountability.”

The Trump campaign nor the White House did not respond to requests for comment.
 
One of Trump’s most loyal members in the House, Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., did respond, calling Pascrell’s position “disgusting.”

Pascrell has used Twitter, Trump’s favorite communications medium, to regularly bash the president and his aides.

He also led the so-far unsuccessful effort to obtain Trump’s tax returns, and quickly used his new position as chair of the House Ways and Means oversight subcommittee to demand that Internal Revenue Service Commissioner Charles Rettig release the returns.

GERMANY & COVID-19 ILLEGAL MANDATES: Police fire water cannons at Berlin demonstrators after they ignored calls to wear face masks

Police Use Water Cannons Against Anti-Lockdown Protesters in Berlin

German government trying to codify social distancing, mandatory mask wearing.

BY PAUL JOSEPH WATSON

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

Police in Berlin used water cannons on anti-lockdown protesters who were demonstrating near the Brandenburg Gate against new COVID-19 laws they claim are unconstitutional.

The new law would codify current social distancing requirements, mandate mask wearing and increase the punishment for those flouting the rules.

The measures are expected to pass both lower and then upper houses of parliament, but that didn’t stop thousands of protesters defying a government ban to descend on the Bundestag in opposition to the law.

Police turned water cannons on demonstrators as the crowd booed while LRAD sound cannons were also utilized.

However, as the videos show, the size of the gathering was far too large for the water cannons to have much effect.

German chancellor Angela Merkel is attempting to make the country’s current “soft lockdown” more draconian, but she does not have the backing of enough state leaders and has delayed the move.

Merkel wants people to self-isolate at home for 7 days even of they only display symptoms of an ordinary cold while limiting social interactions to a maximum of two households.

The chancellor is pursuing the new measures despite Germany’s Minister of Economic Cooperation and Development Gerd Muller warning that the lockdown will end up killing more people than coronavirus itself.

 

The Left’s Wanton Violence Against the MAGA Marchers

A preview of what’s to come if Biden-Harris take over

BY JOSEPH KLEIN

SEE: https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2020/11/lefts-wanton-violence-against-maga-marchers-joseph-klein/;

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

We are already getting an early taste of what Biden-Harris’s America will look like. Black Lives Matter (BLM) and Antifa thugs harassed, threatened and assaulted pro-Trump demonstrators, who had peaceably assembled on Saturday in the nation’s capital for what was billed as the Million MAGA March. The radical leftists are preparing to own the streets, forcing law abiding Americans to either kowtow to their demands or get out of the way.

What a difference four years make. When Donald Trump was elected president in 2016, 'Not my president' marches took place across the country. The marches were loud, angry and unruly. Conservatives who witnessed the marches undoubtedly did not like what they were hearing and seeing, but they did not try to bully the protesters. They respected the First Amendment rights of those upset by the election’s outcome so long as the protesters expressed their views peacefully, which they not always did.

Fast forward to 2020 when conservatives backing President Trump have cause to be upset about what many believe to have been a stolen election. Trump supporters organized protests, culminating on Saturday when thousands gathered in Washington D.C. for the Million MAGA March. President Trump drove past and waved at the demonstrators at one point.

The Trump supporters sang patriotic songs and exercised their First Amendment right to peaceably assemble and voice their objections regarding how the presidential election was handled. But the radical leftists could not care less about the First Amendment except when it helps them. The BLM and Antifa radicals violently confronted the pro-Trump demonstrators as they were wrapping up the MAGA gathering and preparing to leave.

The Daily Caller’s Jorge Ventura tweeted, “Multiple Trump supporters assaulted by pro-BLM supporters in Washington D.C. One of the supporters assaulted was brutally knocked out. The scene is chaotic right now #MillionMAGAMarch.”

Andy Ngô is a journalist who has reported extensively on Antifa’s violence. He was roughed up by Antifa thugs last year in Portland. Ngô tweeted  about the rioters’ unprovoked attacks on Saturday, including an attack on an elderly couple. Ngô wrote in one of his tweets, accompanied by a video of the incident, that a “BLM rioter rushes in and punches a woman in the back of the head as she’s walking away.”

A video posted on Twitter by NBC reporter Shomari Stone shows fireworks being hurled in the direction of Trump supporters while they were dining outside at a restaurant following the MAGA Million March.

The D.C. police not only failed to intervene and protect the peaceful demonstrators from the rioters. As reported by Breitbart, the D. C. police blocked a safer route that the Trump supporters were trying to use to exit the area, forcing them “to walk through a gauntlet of BLM, Antifa, and black bloc assailants in order to leave the area.”

The Trump-hating mainstream media downplayed or distorted what happened. CNN, for example, ran a story entitled “MAGA March brings together Trump voters, far-right leaders and counterprotesters, ending in some clashes.” CNN’s main takeaway was that “Saturday's rally illustrates the thinning of a line between the mainstream right and far-right extremists.” CNN referred to smaller groups of “counter demonstrators” who had gathered “in support of President-elect Joe Biden's electoral victory.” There was not a word said about Antifa or BLM specifically, not to mention their role in starting the “clashes.” We can assume from CNN’s reporting that CNN believes Antifa and BLM agitators should be lumped in with the rest of the cadre of Biden supporters.

Ellison Barber, a so-called “reporter” for MSNBC, tried to make herself the victim when she accused Trump supporters of  “chasing us as we walk further back,” after some protesters began chanting “fake news” in her presence. Then she editorialized: “This gives you a sense of the crowd here. They have no intention of accepting the election results. And as you can tell from the jeering right now, not fans of ours, either.” No to worry. MSNBC, like CNN, has plenty of fans on the far left.

Andy Ngo warned that the “wanton violence in the nation’s capital” on Saturday “demonstrates that BLM-antifa is not going away. They’re emboldened. They are an existential threat to the Constitution & liberal democracy.”

The existential threat is coming not only from the wanton violence against law-abiding Americans that BLM and Antifa perpetrate. BLM is most likely going to be given the opportunity by the Biden-Harris administration to destroy our constitutional republic from within.

Patrisse Cullors, one of the leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement, sent a letter recently to Biden and Harris claiming in effect to speak for all black people who voted for Biden. She requested a meeting to "discuss the expectations that we have for your administration and the commitments that must be made to Black people." According to Cullors, “The best way to ensure that you remedy past missteps and work towards a more just future for Black people—and by extension all people—is to take your direction from Black grassroots organizers that have been engaged in this work for decades, with a legacy that spans back to the first arrival of enslaved Africans. We look forward to meeting with you at your convenience to begin the immediate work of Black liberation."

What is the ideology that Cullors would bring with her to a seat at the table in Biden’s White House? “We are trained Marxists,” she has said.

What is the BLM “agenda” that Cullors wants “to be prioritized?” It includes defunding the police.  According to Cullors, the “fight for black liberation” includes closing all federal prisons and immigration detention centers and dismantling Immigration and Customs Enforcement. She supports reparations for what she describes as "the historical pains and damage caused by European settler colonialism", including "financial restitution, land redistribution, political self-determination, culturally relevant education programs, language recuperation, and the right to return (or repatriation)." And, by the way, Cullors hates Israel and links the Palestinians' victimhood narrative with the suffering of black people in the United States.

Assuming that Joe Biden succumbs to the pressure exerted by BLM and other progressive leftist movements that claim he is indebted to them for his victory, the left will have an inside track to enact their radical agenda. They will also have the BLM and Antifa shock troops to enforce their agenda and squelch any serious opposition.

Biden Transition Official Wants Speech Restrictions

Biden Transition Official Believes the First Amendment Has a 'Design Flaw' -- His Remedy Is to Curb Free Speech

BY ROBERT SPENCER

SEE: https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/robert-spencer/2020/11/14/biden-transition-official-believes-the-first-amendment-has-a-design-flaw-his-remedy-is-to-curb-free-speech-n1144746;

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

Richard Stengel, according to the New York Post, “is the Biden transition ‘Team Lead’ for the US Agency for Global Media, the U.S. government media empire that includes Voice of America, the Middle East Broadcasting Networks and Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty.” He is also a menace to our constitutional protections and to free society in general. If he is any indication of what is coming, we’re in for a rough four years, or longer.

Stengel wrote last year in a Washington Post op-ed that the freedom of speech must be restricted, for “all speech is not equal. And where truth cannot drive out lies, we must add new guardrails. I’m all for protecting ‘thought that we hate,’ but not speech that incites hate.”

What kind of speech “incites hate”? As far as Stengel is concerned, the answer is any speech that Muslims find offensive. He wrote: “Even the most sophisticated Arab diplomats that I dealt with did not understand why the First Amendment allows someone to burn a Koran. Why, they asked me, would you ever want to protect that?”

Well, maybe because a law forbidding criticism (including mockery) of any group establishes that group as a protected class that cannot be questioned, and that in turn would allow this group to do whatever it wanted without fear of any opposition even being allowed to articulate its case. The freedom of speech is, in sum, our foremost protection against tyranny. Without it, a tyrant can work his will without any fear of his opponents uttering even one crossword.

But instead of explaining and defending the freedom of speech, Stengel agreed with his “sophisticated Arab diplomats,” answering their query about Qur’an-burning with this: “It’s a fair question. Yes, the First Amendment protects the ‘thought that we hate,’ but it should not protect hateful speech that can cause violence by one group against another. In an age when everyone has a megaphone, that seems like a design flaw.”

Many other nations are fixing that “design flaw,” according to Stengel, and so the U.S. should also: “Since World War II, many nations have passed laws to curb the incitement of racial and religious hatred. These laws started out as protections against the kinds of anti-Semitic bigotry that gave rise to the Holocaust. We call them hate speech laws, but there’s no agreed-upon definition of what hate speech actually is. In general, hate speech is speech that attacks and insults people on the basis of race, religion, ethnic origin and sexual orientation.”

The destruction of the freedom of speech is an idea whose time has come, says Stengel. “I think it’s time to consider these statutes. The modern standard of dangerous speech comes from Brandenburg v. Ohio (1969) and holds that speech that directly incites ‘imminent lawless action’ or is likely to do so can be restricted. Domestic terrorists such as Dylann Roof and Omar Mateen and the El Paso shooter were consumers of hate speech. Speech doesn’t pull the trigger, but does anyone seriously doubt that such hateful speech creates a climate where such acts are more likely?”

Yes. I’m not in favor of the burning of any book, and I believe that people ought to read and understand the Qur’an rather than burn it. However, note that Stengel is calling for legal “guardrails” against “speech that incites hate.” If someone burns a Bible, no one cares. If someone burns a Qur’an, there are riots and death threats. So for Stengel, burning a Bible would not be “speech that incites hate,” but burning a Qur’an would be. Saying that “speech that incites hate” must be criminalized is tantamount to calling for the heckler’s veto to be enshrined in law.

Stengel’s statement that “the First Amendment protects the ‘thought that we hate,’ but it should not protect hateful speech that can cause violence by one group against another” means that if Muslims riot over burned Qur’ans, we must outlaw burning Qur’ans. That would only signal to Muslims that they can get us to bend to their will by threatening violence, and ensure that we will see many more such threats.

In Richard Stengel’s ideal world, non-Muslims are cowed into silence by Muslims who threaten to kill them if they get out of line, and by non-Muslim officials who react to the threats by giving the Muslims what they want.

Note also that Leftist and Islamic groups in the U.S. have for years insisted, with no pushback from any mainstream politician or media figure, that essentially any and all criticism of Islam, including analysis of how Islamic jihadis use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and make recruits among peaceful Muslims, is “hate speech” and “speech that incites hate.” Thus Richard Stengel will silence that as well, and the global jihad will be able to advance unopposed and unimpeded.

In a year or two I might tell you “I warned you this was coming,” but by then I probably won’t be able to.

DEMOCRATS, VACCINE PUSHERS TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ELECTION CHAOS: AIRLINES TO REQUIRE VACCINATION CERTIFICATES FOR BOARDING; OPEN STRIP CLUBS; CANCELLING THANKSGIVING; NO FOOD STAMPS WITHOUT VACCINES; INCREASE MUSLIM IMMIGRATION

Airlines to Require “Health Pass,” Vaccine Certificate Before Allowing Passengers to Fly

BY PAUL JOSEPH WATSON

SEE: https://summit.news/2020/11/13/report-airlines-to-require-health-pass-vaccine-certificate-before-allowing-passengers-to-fly/;

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

Airlines are likely to require passengers to sign up for a “health pass” which includes a digital certificate of vaccination against COVID-19 before allowing them to fly, according to a new report.

The system would be similar in nature to that being considered by Ticketmaster, who it was revealed earlier this week are considering making customers prove they’ve had the vaccine or a negative coronavirus test before allowing them to purchase tickets.

Ticketmaster later clarified that a final decision on such measures would be up to event organizers but that they were still mulling over the implementation of the system.

Now according to a new report by Axios, airlines are likely to follow the same model.

“Three global alliances representing 58 airlines are pushing governments to allow widespread COVID-19 testing of passengers instead of existing quarantine restrictions that they argue are ineffective and have killed travel demand,” states the report.

Airline passengers would be subject to similar measures being considered by Ticketmaster whereby they would have to verify they’ve been vaccinated or tested negative 24 to 72 hours before the flight.

“The bottom line: No heath pass? No admittance. And perhaps, no flying,” states the report.

The system would likely be organized under the auspices of CommonPass, a program sponsored by the World Economic Forum, which is pushing for a post-COVID “Great Reset” that would transform the world.

With Uber and other companies also beginning to refuse services to people who fail to comply with coronavirus restrictions, the “new normal” will likely create a lower caste of refuseniks who are barred from traveling, any form of social life, and in the future even basic financial services.

If you vote for tyrants, you get tyranny.

This is what millions of Joe Biden supporters are about to discover if their candidate manages to steal the election and seize control of the White House.

A prominent member of Biden’s Covid-19 taskforce, a CIA-linked operative named Luciana Borio, says that people who refuse to be vaccinated should be deprived of food stamps and rent assistance.

And in order to convince Black Americans to take the vaccines, influencers should be hired to brainwash Blacks with special compliance messages that are scientifically tested in social engineering focus groups.

In other words, obey or starve. This is all contained in the report linked in this story, by the way.

This is on top of another Biden taskforce member now calling for a 4-6 week national lockdown for all Americans — a kind of national economic suicide to finish off whatever small businesses might have survived the covid nightmare so far.

This covid tyranny is exactly what we’ve warned was coming: Lockdown tyranny and vaccine tyranny, enforced through a horrifying new “medical credit scoring” system that tracks your compliance with government mandates for vaccines, lockdowns and masks.

The task force member in question here is Luciana Borio, MD, the Vice President of In-Q-Tel, a CIA-linked propaganda front that uses social engineering tactics to enslave humanity. She’s listed as the top member of the “Working Group of Readying Populations for COVID-19 Vaccines” as described in a document from the Center for Health Security, released in July of this year by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. A copy of this PDF has been saved at the Natural News servers, in case they try to take it down from its original location.

The document says that federal agencies should collude to develop a “national promotion strategy” — which might as well be called a “national propaganda strategy” — for convincing people to take potentially dangerous and deadly covid-19 vaccines which have skipped any real rigorous testing.

“Bundling” of vaccinations with food stamps, health care and rent assistance

The document recommends that vaccine mandates get “bundled” with other social services such as food stamps (WIC program), rent assistance and health care services. The report explains:

Local and state public health agencies should explore collaboration with interagency and nongovernment partners to bundle vaccination with other safety net services.

It also says that “bundling” vaccines with food stamps would be, “a way to build trust and streamline vaccine provision” among low-income people such as “Blacks and minority communities.”

Yes, just as we’ve all known for quite some time, the depopulation vaccines will be targeting Blacks in America, which is exactly what the abortion industry targets as well. But anyone who criticizes the forcing of vaccines onto Black Americans will be called racist, of course. The report also talks about putting in place a medical police state monitoring infrastructure to surveil Blacks and minorities in real time, making sure they surrender to forced immunizations:

It will also be critical to monitor in real time who has gotten the vaccine and what the key facilitators and barriers to vaccination have been within communities, so local public health departments can adapt their approaches accordingly.

The document even talks about Blacking-up the vaccine propaganda language in order to appeal to Blacks and so-called anti-vaxxers:

Given the diverse nature of social identities in the United States, vaccination communications will need to be tailored to specific audiences that are key to an equitable and effective COVID-19 response (eg, essential workers, parents, groups with high comorbidity rates, communities of color, vaccine-hesitant persons).

In order to brainwash Blacks and minorities into accepting dangerous, experimental covid-19 vaccines, document authors say that influential celebrities (such as Hollywood stars and music stars) should be recruited to deliver messages so that uninformed people can be influenced:

Engage a broad network of trusted spokespersons who can deliver and reinforce a unified message about COVID-19 vaccination…  To motivate people to take protective actions like vaccination requires that they hear a salient and specific message repeatedly, delivered by multiple trusted messengers and via diverse media channels.

The report even admits that Blacks and minorities have been lied to and abused by the government before, especially involving public health issues: “…minority groups have often experienced a history of government abuse that may make it harder build trust.”

Finally, the document proposes that scientific testing on “vaccination messages” should be openly published by the NIH, CDC and NLM (National Library of Medicine) so that all the authorities have access to all the social engineering experiments that attempt to brainwash Blacks with pro-vaccine propaganda.

Mandatory vaccine sites: Grocery stores, pharmacies, schools, workplaces, senior citizen centers and churches will all be used to force vaccines on everyone

The document not only recommends that food assistance and rent assistance be withheld from those who refuse mandatory coronavirus vaccines, it also says that “home visits” should be used to inject people on a door-to-door basis. In addition, workplaces, pharmacies, churches and schools are named as candidates for forced immunizations, and the document recommends that pharmacists be allowed to “administer a vaccine directly without a standing order.”

The document specifically states that vaccine efforts should include “nontraditional sites” such as “places of worship” or senior centers, and that covid-19 vaccines should be “bundled” with other essential social services such as food stamps (see below).

From the document: (emphasis added)

COVID-19 vaccination may require ramping up the use of sites that are already available and accessible to older adults but are used less frequently; widely placed community pharmacies, for example, are an underutilized site for routine vaccine promotion and administration,111 but they were used successfully for expanding access to pandemic vaccine in 2009 and 2010.112 Most adults in the United States live closer to a pharmacy than to a clinic, and pharmacy vaccination programs can be especially effective for harder-to-reach populations. Pharmacy immunization efforts work best when pharmacists are given adequate training in administering a new vaccine and when state-level policies allow pharmacists the ability to administer a vaccine directly without a standing order. Other nontraditional vaccination settings include grocery stores, senior citizen centers, health departments, mass vaccination clinics, and local corporations; these have been assessed as safe and acceptable sites for pneumococcal and influenza vaccines.113-115 After doctors’ offices, the next most common settings for influenza vaccination are pharmacies, stores (eg, supermarkets), and workplaces.116 To allow adults to be vaccinated directly in their workplaces seems prudent, especially for essential workers likely to be in the first tier for vaccination. Schools, which are trusted institutions present in every community and available on weekends and at night, are an additional candidate location; they were used during mass polio vaccination campaigns.117 In some cases, it also may be acceptable and feasible to deliver vaccination via home visits by community health nurses when vaccination is bundled with delivery of other preventive health services; this approach has received a strong recommendation in the past from the Community Preventive Services Task Force.118 Ensuring that all COVID-19 vaccination sites maintain safe physical distancing practices may require additional planning.

The report also urges vaccine pushers to plan for the “logistics” of using grocery stores as “frontline” sites in a “vaccine rollout.” Here’s the text from the report:

Federal, state, and local health officers and their strategic partners should actively involve experts on preparedness and planning in vaccine rollout preparations as early as possible, given that novel or nontraditional sites for vaccination may become the frontlines of a successful vaccination program. These experts can help coordinate efforts at heterogeneous sites and adapt strategies that suit each site accordingly. For example, the vaccination logistics and rollout at a grocery store site will require different planning and preparation than vaccine rollout in traditional physicians’ offices.

Get ready for the rolling out of an Orwellian medical police state run by fascist vaccine pushers and Big Tech censors

The bottom line in all this? If Biden is elected President and his covid-19 taskforce becomes a reality, America will be transformed into a vaccine-pushing medical police state where you can’t even go to the grocery store or go to church without being harassed by crazed vaccine zealots.

All independent journalism that questions the safety or efficacy of vaccines will be completely banned, and the CDC — using taxpayer money — will roll out an endless stream of pro-vaccine propaganda by hiring famous actors and recording artists to brainwash the masses into getting vaccinated.

This is what happens when you vote for tyrants: You get tyranny.

So roll up your sleeve, Biden supporters, and prepare to be forcibly injected with an experimental, potentially deadly vaccine cocktail that will make the Tuskegee experiments look like a cakewalk.

Blacks and minorities are about to be targeted with the ultimate depopulation weapon: An engineered euthanasia shot called a “vaccine,” that’s so deadly and dangerous, every propaganda trick imaginable has to be used to convince people to take it… even when it’s free.

And if you say no, you won’t be able to buy groceries, go to church, attend a concert, travel by air or even open a bank account. If you continue to resist, don’t worry: They’ll send “isolation teams” to your home to kidnap you and throw you in a CDC concentration camp, where you’ll be “recycled” into biosludge that’s deposited onto the food crops.

It sounds a lot like the Green New Deal, doesn’t it? Except it’s actually the Green New KILL.

Welcome to Covid-1984.

H.R. 8424: Supreme Court Term Limits & Regular Appointments Act Taking Aim at SCOTUS

Judges Court Gavel Law Legal

New Jersey – -(AmmoLand.com)- As the crack of freedom rings out across the nation in the wake of our election for President of the United States, all kinds of bills are popping up for the next legislative session.

It's clear that the people have spoken and Joe Biden is our president-elect!!… I jest, as we are wading into some of the muddiest waters in election history of most everyone’s lifetimes.

The crack of freedom is not only undermined by the continual speculation on what the actual results are but that this is or was, in fact, a very close race. What may come from Trump’s challenges to the election results remains to be seen.  However, we need to be posed and positioned for an anti-freedom Biden Presidency.

The country is fairly split, and anti-freedom lawmakers should not be clicking their heels saying “the people have spoken” and thus introduce laws that would limit any rights of the people, specifically the 2nd Amendment.

More and more people are embracing firearm ownership and many of them may have voted for Biden.

It seems across the nation that lawmakers are emboldened by a Biden win, and all kinds of new legislation have been introduced.  With these bills being proposed on the state and national level, of course, freedom limiting measures are being brought up.  Beyond the legislative, there are murmurs that Biden’s team has already met with the head of the ATF with plans to do what?  Speculation says the banning of arm-braces, a concern that was uncovered in a recent NJ state OPRA request shows the anti-gun group Moms Demand Action in correspondence with New Jersey policymakers (see OPRA W160618 Moms Demand Action Phil Murphy New Jersey 6-25-2020).  Further, the regulation of 80% lowers, to make “ghost guns” unavailable might be on the menu.  Rumors are flying.

What a Biden presidency would mean to the 2nd Amendment and what gets done executively remains to be seen, but we should take his word at it that he’s no friend to lawful gun ownership.  The ATF has been running out of their lane as it is, and what other damage they’re going to do is up in the air.  This is further compounded by legislation introduced to increase the scope of the ATF’s abilities to regulate.

Would a Biden presidency mean the United States entering back into the UN Small Arms Treaty (a scary proposition)?

One thing that continues to be clear, is the progressive agenda and its assaults on the system when America does not go their way.  The progressive agenda does not try to work within the rules like Trump does with his vote count challenge that is within the rules. No, instead, they try to change them to favor one agenda.

Enter H.R. 8424: Supreme Court Term Limits and Regular Appointments Act of 2020

Scene in HR 8424, the Supreme Court Term Limits and Regular Appointments Act of 2020, introduced September 29, 2020.  Interestingly enough, this bill did not pop up in the wake of this year’s election, as many have, but only a scant 11 days after the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Not only is the introduction of this legislation telling because it’s a clear way to try and change the goal post concerning Supreme Court Justices, but it also highlights how disgusting and distasteful some could be by bringing such a bill up not even a full fortnight after RBG’s passing.

The bill proposes that Supreme Court Justices only serve 18-year terms and that every two years the president will get a chance to appoint two new justices.  The current court would be exempt from these provisions, so this is clearly a long game that is being played.  On a personal level, I’m not sure how I feel about the idea of justices having term limits, sure, this could be a good thing, potentially a bad thing.

I think before turning their sights on the courts, congress should be discussing instituting term limits for themselves, prior to projecting on another branch of the government.  A little housekeeping perhaps?

The troubling part of the proposed bill is not so much the 18-year terms, and again, arguments can be made either way on that.  But rather, the more troubling thing is the bill is a direct retaliation and response to the Garland appointment that did not see the light of day, and how Trump was able to fill that seat.  The stonewalling of Garland can be talked about for years to come, and the more progressive-leaning individuals, as they lick their wounds on that loss, had a new nightmare come to fruition, the death of RBG right before the election.

In all rights, RBG should have retired under Obama’s watch if she was particularly worried about securing her seat with a justice that would support policies similar to her own (legislating from the bench).  She rolled the dice and lost. Regardless, the Senate followed the rules, as they did during the Garland appointment, it's just the rules that did not suit progressives.

The dangerous provision of HR 8424 is this:

If the Senate does not exercise its advice and consent authority with respect to a President’s nominee to the Supreme Court within 120 days after the nomination, the Senate shall be deemed to have waived its advice and consent authority with respect to such nominee, and the nominee shall be seated as a Justice of the Supreme Court.

This is clearly an agenda to move the goal post on the selection of Supreme Court Justices when there is an upcoming election.  Let’s change the rules to suit our needs so this never happens again.  When the shoe is on the other foot, conservatives do what they usually do, pick themselves up by their bootstraps, and carry on.

In a United States that did not have judges and justices trying to legislate from the bench, maybe this would not be a bad thing?  I don’t know.  But what I do know is that justices and judges are legislating from the bench all the time, not looking into the history, text, and tradition of the Constitution, rather leaning on “feelings.”  We cannot continue to have a country that has the executive branch or judicial branch create laws.  We must maintain a system to protect what little is left of this ideal.  That means constitutionalists in the courts.  Strong and originalist judges and justices, at this juncture, are the only stop-gap the US has to safeguard against executive overreach and malfeasance of the law in lower courts.

I don’t think HR 8424 will make it anywhere, as most bills don’t.  However, we’d be remiss to not at least point out what is in the playbook.  About those term limits that Donald Trump wants/ed in a second term?

Limits That Donald Trump Wanted In A Second Term
Term Limits in a Donald Trump Second Term

Maybe we should be writing our legislators to impose limits on how long members of Congress can stay in office.

When Leftists Call For ‘Unity,’ They Mean ‘Submission’ – and They’re Not Getting It From Me

BIDEN'S TOTALITARIAN DECLARATION THAT HE WON THE ELECTION & CALL FOR "BIBLICAL" UNITY

After years of calling conservatives "racists," "Nazis" and "white supremacists," Democrats now say they want "unity" - while making lists of Trump supporters to be "held accountable."

THE "UNITY" SPEECH THAT WAS & IS A LIE:

AOC’s Squad Gets New Members, Boosting Democrats’ Socialist Wing

AOC’s Squad Gets New Members, Boosting Democrats’ Socialist Wing

Is the Democrat Party inevitably destined to be AOC’s Democrat Party?

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), seen as one of the most radical left-wing lawmakers in Congress, has her squad growing thanks to the election of a handful of young new progressives on November 3.

The “Squad” refers to the freshman congresswomen elected in the 2018 midterms who, like Ocasio-Cortez, favor socialist policies such as the Green New Deal, Medicare for All, open borders, and defunding the police. The other members of the group are Representatives Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.).

Two of the new additions to The Squad are male. 

The first, Democrat Mondaire Jones of New York, is an advocate for Medicare for All and the Green New Deal and has called for defunding police departments and ending cash bail.

“Congress must cease all funding that militarizes police forces, repeal the 1994 Crime Bill that accelerated mass incarceration, and abolish cash bail, which condemns poor people to pretrial detention while more affluent people await trial from the comfort of their homes,” he wrote in a June article.

For Jones, dismantling white supremacy involves “moving funding away from police departments and toward programs that improve public safety by helping to address the roots of systemic inequality.”

Jamaal Brown, also of New York, likewise backs the Green New Deal and Medicare for All, along with canceling student debt and “shifting funding and resources from police departments, jails, and prisons to new agencies designed to protect public health.”

In addition, he has pushed the “Reconstruction Agenda,” which includes creating a “National Truth and Reconciliation Commission to investigate, document, and assess the federal government’s role in America’s history of racism.”

According to Brown, a “federal investigation and commission modeled on the transitional justice approach in Germany, South Africa, and Rwanda” is needed to make a proposal for slavery reparations.

He also wants to “dramatically” reduce prison populations, by ending mandatory minimums, cash bail, the “war on drugs,” and what he calls “mass deportation.”

Then there’s Cori Bush (D-Mo.), who, in addition to the Green New Deal, seeks a $15 minimum wage, the abolition of immigration enforcement, and an end to “right-to-work” protections for workers — a move that would empower labor unions.

Bush has floated the idea of funding more social services not only by defunding the police, but the military as well.

“If you’re having a bad day, just think of all the social services we’re going to fund after we defund the Pentagon,” she tweeted in October.

The election of the three radicals will strengthen the Democrat Party’s progressive wing, which has taken heat in recent days as moderates within the party are blaming the more extreme element for the party’s loss, rather than gain, of seats in the House on Election Day.

House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) said in a caucus call last week that if “we are going to run on ‘Medicare-for-all,’ defund the police, socialized medicine, we’re not going to win.”

The Free Beacon has reported on Democrats’ support for defunding the police, despite claims by some progressives that they never supported the idea:

Earlier this year, progressive Democrats backed proposals to defund police departments across the country. In July, Reps. Ayanna Pressley (D., Mass.) and Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.), both members of the far-left “squad,” endorsed a bill that would strip federal funding for police departments and disband several federal law enforcement agencies. Ocasio-Cortez, who has also backed efforts to defund police departments, said New York City’s decision to cut more than $1 billion in funding for the city’s police department in June did not go far enough, saying “the fight to defund policing continues.”

Ocasio-Cortez, however, defended progressives by arguing that the Democrats who support policies such as the Green New Deal and Medicare for All won reelection.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) has said that the New York congresswoman “runs the floor. That wing of the party, the socialist wing of the party, they are the new power of the Democratic Party.”

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) does not renounce socialism because it would get her in trouble with her party’s progressives.

Democrats are currently on track to lose between seven and 11 seats in the House of Representatives, which would make for the thinnest majority in two decades.

Florida Governor DeSantis Proposes Bill to Let Citizens Shoot Looters & Rioters

Florida Gov Ron DeSantis is proposing an expansion to the state's Stand Your Ground law that would allow armed citizens to shoot and possibly kill anyone they suspect of rioting or looting

EXCERPT FROM: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8936631/Florida-Governor-Ron-DeSantis-allow-armed-citizens-shoot-suspected-looters-rioters.html:

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis 'to allow armed citizens to shoot suspected looters and rioters' who target businesses in an expansion of the state's Stand Your Ground law

If leftists were calling him “Death Santis” before over COVID-19, he’s doubly earned the nickname now.

Florida governor Ron DeSantis (R) has prepared an “anti-mob” legislation that would expand the state’s Stand Your Ground law to allow citizens to shoot at looters.

The legislation says it is an attempt to prevent “violent and disorderly assemblies” by permitting violence against anyone involved in the “interruption or impairment” of a business, which the proposal describes as being a burglary within 500 feet of “violent or disorderly assembly.”

Florida’s Stand Your Ground law, passed in 2005, removed the burden of having to retreat first before using force to counter a threat and gave judges more leeway to grant “immunity” to someone they believed acted in self-defense before letting a case get to the jury.

This comes as the year 2020 has been rocked by riots and looting throughout America since the deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.

DeSantis, a vocal supporter of President Trump, reportedly submitted copies of the legislation to the state’s Senate Committee on Criminal Justice and the House Judiciary Committee, according to the Miami Herald.

The outlet notes that “Other key elements of DeSantis’ proposal would enhance criminal penalties for people involved in ‘violent or disorderly assemblies,’ make it a third-degree felony to block traffic during a protest, offer immunity to drivers who claim to have unintentionally killed or injured protesters who block traffic, and withhold state funds from local governments that cut law enforcement budgets.”

The section of the proposal targeting counties and municipalities that make “disproportionate funding reductions” to law-enforcement agency budgets is likely DeSantis’ way of fighting back against the “defund the police” movement. Under the governor’s proposal, each municipality would need to certify to the state by October 15 that it is not disproportionately cutting law-enforcement agencies’ funding.

And the Tampa Bay Times reported on the reception the draft legislation is getting from key Republican leaders in the GOP-controlled state legislature:

Incoming Senate President Wilton Simpson is “interested in taking a look at the issue,” but there is no update on what the Senate plans to do with the draft language the governor’s office emailed in September, according to Senate spokeswoman Katie Betta.

Sarasota Republican state Sen. Joe Gruters, who doubles as the chairman of the Republican Party of Florida, told the Times/Herald on Monday that the governor “has the right idea” with the proposal. He did not say whether he will sponsor the bill, only that he “will definitely be supporting it however I can.”

Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri, who serves as the legislative chair of the Florida Sheriffs Association, said the issue is an important one to sheriffs across the state but was hesitant to comment on draft legislation.

“The sheriffs want to review it and look forward to the proposed bill that comes out of drafting, and we will carefully analyze and consider it, and take a position once we see the final form,” Gualtieri said Tuesday.

As expected, the proposal has elicited criticism from liberals in the state.

“It dangerously gives armed private citizens power to kill as they subjectively determine what constitutes ‘criminal mischief’ that interferes with a business,” former Miami-Dade prosecutor Aubrey Webb told the Herald. “Someone graffiti-ing ‘Black Lives Matter’ on a wall? Urinating behind a dumpster? Blocking an entrance?”

“Any number of things could occur. ‘Interruption or impairment’ to what degree? You could have people who are peacefully assembling who go in and out of a store — and a store owner or even a passerby could get nervous and misinterpret something and think they have the right to use unnecessary physical force — or even deadly force,” said Reid Rubin, a retired Miami-Dade homicide prosecutor.

Melba Pearson, a civil-rights attorney and former deputy director of Florida’s American Civil Liberties Union, told the Times the bill is “designed to tamp down on First Amendment rights of protesters.” She called the term “anti-mob” misleading, asserting that Florida did not have large-scale clashes between police and protesters like other states.

“These are not mobs running around the street. People are using their First Amendment rights. This is a democracy, lest some in Tallahassee forget,” said Pearson, a former Miami-Dade prosecutor.

First, Pearson is wrong in saying this is a democracy. The United States and the State of Florida are republics.

Second, while it is true that Florida has escaped the kind of anarchy seen in Portland, there certainly are Antifa cells and other armed left-wing elements in the state (the John Brown Gun Club, the Coalition of Armed Labor, etc.), and the only reason they haven’t risen to CHOP-level mob violence is because Republican leaders such as DeSantis repeatedly show that such antics will not be tolerated in the Sunshine State.

 

The Non-stop Effort to Take Down Trump and America

When Donald Trump was elected, the head of the United States Cyber Command warned Trump about a planned coup against him by America’s elites. He was spot-on.

The Non-stop Effort to Take Down Trump and America

On November 17, 2016, a meeting that may turn out to have been one of the most pivotal in American history took place at Trump Tower in New York City. On that day, nine days after the tumultuous 2016 presidential election, Admiral Michael S. Rogers met secretly with President-elect Donald Trump. It was a meeting that set off Deep State alarms, and those alarm bells instantly started echoing throughout the controlled Deep State media empire. 

Why the intense anxiety? As director of the National Security Agency (NSA), Admiral Rogers was then also chief of the Central Security Service (CSS) and commander of the United States Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM). He had previously served as the director for intelligence for both the Joint Chiefs of Staff and U.S. Pacific Command, as well as commander of the U.S. 10th Fleet and commander of the U.S. Fleet Cyber Command. In other words, he was the top dog in the world of signals intelligence (SIGINT) and held the keys to the kingdom of America’s powerful surveillance-state apparatus. 

Admiral Michael S. Rogers Trump Deep State coup

The patriot vs. the plotters: Nine days after the 2016 election, Admiral Michael S. Rogers (shown) made a high-risk journey to New York to warn President-elect Donald J. Trump he was being spied upon and inform him of a Deep State coup effort that included other intelligence chiefs. (Photo credit: AP Images)

What was Admiral Rogers doing at Trump Tower? According to globalist Deep State media assets, such as the Washington Post, NPR, and the New York Times, he was ingratiating himself to Donald Trump, hoping to get a job in the new administration as director of national intelligence (DNI), a position then held by Obama appointee James Clapper. The admiral’s detractors claim that he was about to be fired by President Obama for NSA intelligence failures and for his “aloof” leadership style. But according to Rogers’ defenders, the admiral’s journey to New York was a daring mission to warn the incoming president about a treasonous coup plot involving top members of the Obama administration and key leaders in the other intelligence agencies. And the media efforts to denigrate Rogers’ reputation were aimed precisely at publicly undermining his credibility and the warning he was delivering.

The extraordinary events of the past four years support the position of Admiral Rogers’ advocates, not his attackers. We all have witnessed, in real time, an unprecedented and ongoing coup effort in which high-level officials within the Trump administration, together with members of Congress, former government officials, media organizations, major think tanks, tax-exempt foundations, labor unions, and militant street mobs have carried out a coordinated and relentless campaign of disruption, subversion, insurrection, sabotage, and “resistance” to cripple and topple President Donald J. Trump. During that time, a continuous stream of revelations — through leaks, whistleblowers, inspector general reports, court rulings, congressional investigations, and Department of Justice investigations — has provided crucial witness testimony and documentary evidence to connect many of the dots. 

Some of these crucial disclosures have only come to light in the final weeks leading up to the November 2020 elections. It has taken that long — the entire (first) term of the Trump presidency — to pry loose the damning evidence of criminality and treachery behind, for instance, the infamous (and phony) “Steele dossier”; the illegal FISA court warrants obtained for Spygate; the sham “Trump-Russia collusion” charge; the vicious FBI/DOJ/Mueller railroading of General Michael Flynn, Carter Page, Roger Stone, and Paul Manafort; the real evidence of Hillary Clinton-Russia collusion; the FBI/DOJ/Mueller collusion with Hillary Clinton, Fusion GPS, and Crowdstrike — and much, much more.

The Empire Strikes Back

The Trump Tower rendezvous between the president-elect and the NSA chief, understandably, caused a panic attack among the Deep State coup plotters. Although the actual content of the conversation between Trump and Rogers has not been publicly revealed, all indications are that the admiral spilled some pretty big beans. On the same day of that meeting, having apparently been apprised by Rogers that they were being spied upon, the Trump Transition Team surprised everyone with the abrupt announcement that they were immediately moving all transition activity to Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey. Trump then had a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility, or SCIF, constructed at Trump Tower to prevent hostile surveillance — from enemies both foreign and domestic. On November 19, 2016, two days after that historic Trump-Rogers meeting, the attacks on Admiral Rogers began. Naturally, the Deep State conspirators chose the Washington Post, their longtime favorite disinformation spigot, to lead the smear campaign. The Post article, entitled “Pentagon and intelligence community chiefs have urged Obama to remove the head of the NSA,” stated, “The heads of the Pentagon and the nation’s intelligence community have recommended to President Obama that the director of the National Security Agency, Adm. Michael S. Rogers, be removed.”

“The recommendation, delivered to the White House last month,” the story continued, “was made by Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter and Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr., according to several U.S. officials familiar with the matter.” Typical of media hatchet jobs, the article was replete with alleged negative statements and allegations by anonymous “senior officials.”

Although it is dangerous to believe anything carried in that lie factory, it turns out the Post was correct in stating that top Department of Defense and intelligence community officials were urging President Obama to fire Admiral Rogers even before his trip to Trump Tower. Why? Well, as we subsequently learned, Rogers had been throwing sand into the gears of the coup plotters for the past year, challenging and thwarting their illegal activities. It appears that for months prior to the Trump Tower meeting, Rogers had been playing a cat-and-mouse game with the Obama administration and its lackeys in the “Intelligence Community.” Defense Secretary Ashton “Ash” Carter, who is also a director of the globalist-minded Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), along with Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, took the lead in calling for his ouster. However, apparently it was Department of Justice National Security Division (DOJ-NSD) head John P. Carlin who had been assigned the job of deep-sixing the troublesome admiral. 

Jeff Carlson, who writes for the Epoch Times and has posted some of the most detailed and perceptive articles on the coup intrigue, wrote that “Carlin was setting up Rogers as the scapegoat” for the very crimes Rogers was trying to stop and expose. Rogers had gone to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) to report violations of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) by the Obama administration and members of the intelligence community. Section 702 of FISA is aimed at protecting Americans against warrantless search and seizure. Under Section 702, the NSA “may not intentionally target any person known at the time of acquisition to be located in the United States.” Among additional prohibitions, it “may not intentionally target a U.S. person reasonably believed to be located outside the United States.”

Carlin was the official at DOJ responsible for ensuring that the administration abided by FISA restrictions, prohibitions, and procedures. However, he had covered for the Obama administration’s routine violation of those restrictions, prohibitions, and procedures. Admiral Rogers became aware of the serious nature and extent of FISA violations and ordered the NSA’s Office of Compliance to “do a fundamental baseline review of compliance associated with 702.” Among the findings of the review was that the FBI, which had access to NSA intercepts, was illegally sharing this FISA data on individuals with private contractors. This criminal use of private contractors was one of a number of violations condemned by FISC presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer in her stinging rebuke of the FBI in her April 26, 2017 ruling. This FBI abuse apparently had been brought to her attention by Admiral Rogers, who had already shut down all FBI contractor access a year before, in April 2016. Although Judge Collyer’s ruling redacts the names of the contractors, various analysts have reasonably suggested from clues in the text, timelines, and related data that at least some of the contractors cited are very likely entities associated with Hillary Clinton’s campaign, such as Fusion GPS and Crowdstrike.

Additionally, the NSA compliance review found numerous “About Query” violations. “Rogers shut down all ‘about query’ activity on Oct. 21, 2016,” reported Jeff Carlson in the Epoch Times on December 20, 2019. “‘About queries’ are particularly worrisome,” Carlson noted, “since they occur when the target is neither the sender nor the recipient of the collected communication; rather, the target’s ‘query,’ such as an email address, is being passed between two other communicants.” 

Admiral Rogers and the FISA court also dinged the FBI and DOJ for failure to comply with Standard Minimization Procedures. The website of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) describes “minimization” as “a detailed set of procedures designed to minimize the acquisition, retention, use, and dissemination of U.S. person information acquired under Section 702.”

Subsequent revelations highlighted another egregious intelligence abuse, the illegal “unmasking” of individuals in NSA data by Obama officials. And as Representative Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), then chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, has said, these violations had “nothing to do” with Russia or national security matters. They were all about weaponizing and politicizing the intelligence functions.

Representative Nunes was one of many who came to Admiral Rogers’ defense when he was attacked by Carter, Clapper, and the Washington Post. Nunes’ defense of Rogers, as well as his pit-bull tenacity in exposing the criminal deeds of the coup plotters, soon earned him even more vicious attacks in the Deep State-aligned press than had been dished out to the NSA chief.

Taking Out His Teammates

For much the same reasons that they wanted to get rid of Admiral Rogers, the Deep State’s globalist elites wanted to make sure that General Michael Flynn would not survive as President Trump’s national security advisor. General Flynn had been director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) under President Obama. However, he had been forced out, into early retirement, in 2014 by Clapper and Obama. He shares many of the traits of Admiral Rogers that make the insiders of the Obama-Biden-Clinton-Pelosi circles of power (and those above them) very nervous. He knows too much and can’t be depended on to go along with their subversion of the Constitution and the rule of law. Thus, he was forced to resign, by a campaign of lies and innuendo, on February 13, 2017, only 24 days after having been sworn in.

However, General Flynn’s long ordeal was just beginning. The coup plotters were determined to make an example of him, to crush him, to send him to prison. They very nearly succeeded. Four years later, the general’s tribulation is still not over. The Department of Justice under Attorney General William Barr filed a motion on May 7, 2020 to dismiss with prejudice the charges against Flynn. The DOJ motion noted that Flynn’s questioning “was untethered to, and unjustified by, the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation.” However, federal district judge Emmet G. Sullivan has refused to dismiss the case and continues to fight the dismissal with extraordinary measures. 

The pretext for the vendetta against General Flynn is the charge that he lied about the content and nature of his communications with Russian ambassador to the United States Sergey Kislyak. This was all part and parcel of the hoax aimed at convincing the American public that Donald Trump and other members of his team were colluding with and/or were compromised by Russia and Vladimir Putin. The congressional investigations found no evidence to substantiate these charges. Neither did the much-ballyhooed two-year “Russia probe” by Office of Special Counsel (OSC) Robert Mueller. Nor did any of the media sleuths who had been trumpeting the “Russia, Russia, Russia” theme for four years.

Many stakes have been driven into the heart of the “Russia collusion” corpse, but the latest one delivered by FBI agent William Barnett this past September may finally do the job. Barnett, who was the FBI’s lead agent on the Flynn case, has described the investigation and prosecution of Flynn as an operation to “get Trump.” Barnett says he and other FBI and CIA investigators and analysts recognized early on that the probe was an “exercise in futility” and that the prosecutors were “groping” to find a crime. According to Barnett, top Mueller team prosecutors such as Jeannie Rhee and Andrew Weissmann were “obsessed” with finding a Trump-Russia connection and used overly aggressive tactics to obtain what they wanted. He says he had to intervene multiple times during interviews with Flynn and others due to misleading questions by Mueller team members.

FBI Director James Comey, Special Counsel Robert Mueller (a former FBI director), and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates had stacked the FBI/DOJ/OSC investigations with virulently partisan, anti-Trump staffers, as the notorious e-mail and text messages of FBI Agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page show.

Real Collusion: Russia-Hillary 

On October 3, 2020, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe declassified notes of former CIA Director John Brennan. It was an explosive revelation, but (surprise!) none of the “mainstream” media seemed to show the slightest interest. What did the notes reveal? They showed that Brennan had briefed former President Obama on July 26, 2016 concerning Hillary Clinton’s alleged “plan” to smear then-candidate Donald Trump by tying him to Russia as “a means of distracting the public from her use of a private email server.”

Brennan’s handwritten notes state:

We’re getting additional insight into Russian activities from [REDACTED]. . . CITE [summarizing] alleged approved by Hillary Clinton a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisers to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by the Russian security service.

On July 31, 2016, five days after Brennan’s briefing of Obama on the Clinton scheme, Comey’s FBI opened its bogus “investigation” of the Trump campaign and its alleged ties to Russia. 

Consider the enormity of this: The Steele dossier, as it has now been incontestably shown, was put together by British ex-spy Christopher Steele, with the assistance of Russian intelligence. It was then used by not only Hillary Clinton but also her co-conspirators Barack Obama, James Comey, James Clapper, Nancy Pelosi, Representative Adam Schiff, the Washington Post, the New York Times, CNN, CBS, and all the rest of the Deep State cabal to vilify Trump, precisely as directed in the Clinton scheme outlined in Brennan’s briefing to President Obama. So, it is Hillary Clinton who is the Russian colluder. 

Then Clinton and her campaign lawyer Marc Elias repeatedly lied and denied any connection to the obscene “pee dossier” — until documentary evidence forced them to admit that they had financed it. Then Hillary switched her tune and even defended funding the dossier. It was just legit “opposition research,” she told ABC News.

Audacious it certainly was, especially since the Clinton-Russia ties go far deeper than her collusion with Russian intelligence to produce the aforementioned “Steele dossier.” It was/is Hillary Clinton (and her husband, Bill, and daughter, Chelsea, and their Clinton Foundation), not Donald Trump, that has all the ties to Putin and Russia. As we have reported in The New American many times over the years, Hillary Clinton had notoriously concluded a number of deals with Putin’s regime that materially aided Russia’s military-industrial-techological advancement, while simultaneously striking serious blows to America’s national security. Along these lines we could mention, for example, the Uranium One deal that gave Russia a controlling interest in our American uranium production, and the technology transfers that have helped build Skolkovo, Russia’s hi-tech Silicon Valley.

Of course, that was already known by the Deep Staters who were, nevertheless, pushing the Trump-Russia theme with a vengeance.

Those Spreading the Lies

Thus far in this article, we have focused primarily on the Deep State’s coup efforts through the operations of its captive intelligence agencies. This is not to suggest that all or even most of the men and women who serve in the FBI, CIA, DIA, and other intelligence-community agencies are parties to this treachery. Indeed, it is due to leaks and testimony from many brave and patriotic employees who have risked their careers, reputations, pensions — and even their lives — to expose the crimes and treason of the political hacks who are their bosses, that we know about the fraud and lies. 

The intelligence community wields enormous power, but it is only one facet of the larger Deep State cabal that has been attacking the Trump administration — and America — from every angle and on every level.

Billionaire globalist Bill Gates WHO/CDC Trojan horse

Working closely in tandem with the Deep State intelligence community is the controlled establishment media, whose indispensable role we have highlighted in an article on page 16. Together with the Big Tech social-media giants and search engines — Facebook, Twitter, Google, YouTube, Reddit, Yahoo, Microsoft, Bing, etc. — they are transforming American society ever more rapidly to resemble the totalitarian system of Communist China. Not only are they dispensing statist prop-aganda that more and more mimics the Chinese Communist Party line, but in true Orwellian fashion they are blatantly punishing “thought crime” with censorship, demonetization, deplatforming, bullying, doxing, and label-lynching.

Deep State operatives within the intelligence community and throughout the federal bureaucracy also collude with the anti-Trump/anti-American media to produce a steady deluge of strategically timed leaks, many of which involve classified material, and all of which are calculated to disrupt and cripple the operations of government. Like the Antifa street thugs, they may as well adopt the revolutionary slogan, “Make America Ungovernable!”

Speaking of Antifa, we should mention here the important role they and their comrades in Black Lives Matter are playing in the orchestrated coup effort. Their job is to provide pressure from below while Deep State operatives in government and the media provide pressure from above. The BLM/Antifa rioters would have amounted to nothing except for: 1) the massive funding they have received from George Soros and other globalists; 2) the massive media promotion and propaganda they have enjoyed; 3) the enormous boost they have received from radical politicians and particularly from mayors and prosecutors (many of whom are Soros-funded) who refuse to prosecute the rioters; and 4) the crucial leadership of hard-core Marxist-Leninists of the Revolutionary Communist Party, the Freedom Road Socialist Organization, and other revolutionary groups. But, naturally, these things are never mentioned by the controlled media, which would have us believe the lie that the BLM/Antifa mobs are authentic, grassroots organizations.

Still another important element of the ongoing coup effort is the campaign to expand and empower the United Nations and all of its programs. President Trump not only has initiated action to withdraw the United States from the disastrous UN Climate Accord, but also has terminated U.S. membership in UNESCO, WHO, and the UN Arms Trade Treaty, which is a thinly disguised attack on the Second Amendment. Obviously, these and other Trumpian attacks on the globalists’ New World Order could not be allowed to stand. Then we saw the convenient unleashing of the COVID-19 “pandemic” upon the world by Communist China to wreck the rebounding U.S. economy, while pro-Beijing globalists such as Bill Gates, George Soros, and their confreres at the Council on Foreign Relations and World Economic Forum have cheered the moves by Western governments to adopt Chinese-style totalitarianism and “global health governance.” 

As we go to press (on November 5) the official results of the election are still up in the air, though it is obvious that operatives of the Deep State have been active at all levels, and using all illegal means at their disposal, to steal votes from President Trump and throw the count to Joe Biden. As the decision over who won the White House gets thrown to the courts, we can expect that the BLM/Antifa mobs will also be unleashed into the streets. There also are crucial U.S. Senate and House races that remain unresolved. The outcomes of these races will hugely impact our nation, not the least of matters being whether or not we will see a packing of the Supreme Court, as many leading Democrats are calling for.

The Left Goes Full-Fascist With an Enemies List

To hold “Trump sycophants” accountable for their “complicity.”

BY MARK TAPSON

Mark Tapson is the Shillman Fellow on Popular Culture for the David Horowitz Freedom Center.

Even as last week’s election results are being contested and the Democrats’ massive voter fraud is being exposed, the supporters of empty-suit candidate Joe Biden are already claiming victory and chafing at the bit to implement their radical agenda. And in contrast to his hypocritical call to “put away the harsh rhetoric” and unify Americans after the purported divisiveness of Donald Trump, Biden’s supporters have already begun threatening their political opponents with vicious retribution for supporting their #MAGA nemesis.

True to their totalitarian nature, newly-reelected New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other high-profile Democrats tweeted Friday that Trump supporters essentially should be blacklisted for their role in advancing his unacceptable agenda to make America great again. “Is anyone archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future?” the socialist Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “I foresee decent probability of many deleted Tweets, writings, photos in the future.”

“Lol at the ‘party of personal responsibility’ being upset at the idea of being responsible for their behavior over last four years,” she added later. It takes enormous chutzpah to accuse Republicans of misbehavior in our current, thuggish “cancel culture” marked by rampant leftist violence.

“Complicity” is a loaded word, which she no doubt chose intentionally. It means participation in criminal or wrongful activity. The implication, of course, is that both President Trump and his supporters are not simply political opponents but are legally guilty of wrongdoing and must be punished.

In a democratic political system, one party “punishes” the other by beating it in elections. Losing the election – being denied the opportunity to implement your agenda – is the punishment. The opposing parties then move forward together in an often uneasy or even contentious coexistence until the next election. But totalitarians by definition reject coexistence; after seizing power they punish their opponents literally and brutally, out of pure vindictiveness and with the intent to eradicate any opposition once and for all.

In a related tweet on Friday, Never-Trumper columnist Jennifer Rubin, the Washington Post’s token “conservative” (until she officially dropped the label from her bio two months ago), embraced her inner totalitarian: “Any [Republican] now promoting rejection of an election or calling to not to follow the will of voters or making baseless allegations of fraud should never serve in office, join a corporate board, find a faculty position or be accepted into ‘polite’ society,” Rubin stated with eyebrow-raising directness. “We have a list.”

We have a list. The left is gleefully boasting about putting together an enemies list to ostracize – no, to destroy – Trump supporters. This echoes unhinged Rep. Maxine Waters’ reprehensible call two years ago to her supporters to publicly confront and harass Trump cabinet members: “Let's make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they're not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

Not welcome anymore, anywhere. This kind of ugliness goes far beyond agreeing to disagree. It is a rabble-rousing call to wage mob intimidation against fellow Americans, ostracize them from what Rubin calls “polite” society, and ruin their livelihoods. This is a totalitarian threat.

And who has this enemies list? Other social media users announced on Friday the launch of an ominous new initiative: the Trump Accountability Project, the purpose of which, as Emily Abrams, former campaign staffer for failed presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, tweeted, is “to make sure anyone who took a paycheck to help Trump undermine America is held responsible for what they did.”

“We must never forget those who furthered the Trump agenda,” the Trump Accountability Project website states. “We should welcome in our fellow Americans with whom we differ politically. But those who took a paycheck from the Trump Administration should not profit from their efforts to tear our democracy apart.”

Don’t assume that the Party of Tolerance and Inclusiveness will “welcome” Trump supporters under a Joe Biden-Kamala Harris regime, or that their retribution will be limited to paid employees of the Trump administration. As the Massachusetts Daily noted, in addition to campaign workers, political appointees, and Trump donors, the Trump Accountability Project site originally added to its hit list “Individuals and Organizations that publicly endorsed either of Trump’s campaigns for President, in 2016 or 2020. – This means you.” So paid or not, anyone who publicly declared they were voting for Trump is a target. [That part of the statement disappeared from the website by Saturday morning, no doubt because it exposed just how broad and “inclusive” their vengeful scope really will be.]

We have already witnessed innumerable violent examples in the recent past, caught on video, of just how “welcoming” the left is to Trump supporters even while Trump is still in office. Are we now expected to believe that, if Biden is confirmed as President, the Democrats will treat Trump voters with any less cruelty, as long as the latter didn’t receive an actual paycheck bearing Trump’s signature?

The website continues: “The world should never forget those who, when faced with a decision, chose to put their money, their time, and their reputations behind separating children from their families, encouraging racism and anti-Semitism, and negligently causing the unnecessary loss of life and economic devastation from our country’s failed response to the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Every one of these points is either misleading, an outright lie, or pure Democrat projection. Temporary separation of illegal alien families at the border is for the protection of the children and a check against human trafficking -- not, as the left insists, just capricious cruelty (nor did it originate with Trump; Barack Obama, with Biden as Vice President, separated families as well). It is the Democrats who have divided us with their inherently racist identity politics. It is the Democrats who openly express anti-Semitism (Ilhan Omar, anyone? Rashida Tlaib? Linda Sarsour? Black Lives Matter?), not Trump, who is widely considered the most pro-Jewish and pro-Israel American president ever. It was not Trump but Democrat state leaders like the incompetent New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and tyrannical Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer who exacerbated the “unnecessary loss of life and economic devastation” from the coronavirus.

Right-wing social media reaction to these threatening tweets was swift and defiant. Conservative actor and Twitter gadfly James Woods tweeted to AOC, “Are you literally making lists? I understand you’re an ignorant nitwit who’s never had a passing acquaintance with a history book, but political lists are EXACTLY what Communists do: Lenin, Stalin, Pol Pot, Castro. So put me at the top of your list, you moron. I’d be honored.”

Republican Senator Marsha Blackburn too proudly offered her name to the list: “If by undermining America you mean stopping Democrat socialists, not defunding police and blocking the Green New Deal, add me to your list,” she wrote, adding the hashtag #MAGA.

Today’s Democrat Party – proudly far-left, anti-Constitution, anti-capitalism, and anti-American – has demonstrated through its ruthless "cancel culture," its violent assaults and mob harassment against conservatives, and its lawless urban rampages which the media dishonestly dismiss as "mostly peaceful protests," that it is totalitarian to the core. Can anyone seriously doubt that, given enough power, and aided and abetted by today’s media propagandists, the left would not merely eject conservatives from their “polite” society, but would establish re-education camps and eventually even gulags for those who hold “incorrect” opinions? It has happened everywhere that totalitarianism reigns. All freedom-loving Americans must defy and vigorously denounce the left’s call to exact revenge upon their political opponents.

 

David French Joins Southern Baptist Leaders in Praising Joe Biden for “Character”

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

David French, a political commentator at the National Review — who also happens to be in bed with the leftist wing of Evangelicalism — has joined hands with progressive Southern Baptists such as Russell Moore of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) and president of the denomination, J.D. Greear to congratulate and extend a warm welcome to Joe Biden as their future pastor-in-chief. After years of relentless attacks on the current president Donald Trump over his “character flaws,” these men now praise Joe Biden for carrying the moral high ground despite the fact Biden opposes God from every conceivable angle.

In a recent piece at his personal blog titled May God Bless President Biden, David French asks, though he may disagree with Biden on policy issues, “since when do we require perfection or agreement to appreciate a good moment in a man’s life, especially when he has endured such terrible grief, including the recent death of his beloved son?”

Now, let that sink in for a moment. French, who claims to be a Christian and runs in circles with Southern Baptist elitists, demands we set aside our policy differences with Joe Biden because he has endured “terrible grief” in his life. Nevermind that Joe Biden wants to kill babies, force the LGBTQ agenda down your children’s throats in public schools, steal from hard workers to give to sluggards, destabilize the nation through open-borders policies and defunding law enforcement, and silencing the gospel by flushing religious freedom down the proverbial toilet. David French wants Christians to embrace him — all while he wanted Christians to reject Donald Trump.

FACT: Donald Trump is not a Christian. He may profess Christianity, but he does present the fruits of a born-again believer.

FACT: Donald Trump has done more for the unborn over the last four years than the vast majority of the professing Church, especially David French and his ilk.

FACT: Joe Biden is not a Christian. He is a Roman Catholic, but he is certainly no Christian. In fact, he does not even believe and follow what the Roman Catholic Church teaches on morality, let alone follow the Scriptures and believe in Christ.

FACT: Joe Biden has done nothing in 47 years to advance the cause of the Church, promote righteousness in our nation, defend the freedoms of Christians, or to give a voice to conservatives. In fact, he has fought for the exact opposite.

Joe Biden does not hold the moral high ground between him and Donald Trump. Hell, he wants to kill babies and force you to pay for it against your conscience. That alone should be enough to set any Christian against him. But his list of moral failures far exceeds anything Donald Trump could muster up. It’s just that these progressive leftists don’t see an anti-Christian agenda as immorality — and that’s what’s wrong with the Church.

Why there were no fears of post-election riots in Montana

Around the country businesses boarded up their windows before election day.

Our Montana MassResistance activists show why things remain calm there!

November 8, 2020
ALT TEXT When hundreds of fanatical Black Lives Matter demonstrators descended on this Montana downtown park, some of the citizens came to make sure that it really was peaceful! [All photos by MassResistance except where noted.]

In cities and towns across America on Nov. 3, people braced for post-election riots and destruction by Black Lives Matter (BLM) and Antifa – a continuation of the violence those groups had been committing for months – which had been threatened by top Democrats. Store owners boarded up their windows. Police were put on alert, and in some places the National Guard was called up.

ALT TEXT Store windows in downtown Boston the day of the election. [Photo: NBCBoston.com]

But not in Montana. Earlier this year, Black Lives Matter and Antifa got a clear message that their brand of intimidation and violence would not work there! Here’s just one story.

On June 6, hundreds of agitated BLM-allied leftists converged on Depot Park in the center of Kalispell, Montana for a so-called “protest.” Kalispell, a small city north of Missoula in the northwest corner of the state, had not seen anything like this before.

Many locals feared that a mob would attempt to deface or destroy the Flathead County Veterans Memorial in the center of the small downtown park, as BLM activists had done to other monuments (particularly those involving military figures) across the country. And neighborhood businesses were on edge.

But when the BLM supporters arrived, the area around the monument was surrounded by dozens of well-armed local citizens. (Montana allows open-carry of firearms without a permit.) And the locals were prepared to also protect the nearby local businesses if necessary.

As a result, everything was peaceful. The leftists got the message! The virtue-signaling local people were surprisingly restrained. They stayed on the side of the street with their signs and banners and didn’t even block traffic. Even the more surly rabble-rousers held back.

Here are photos taken by our Montana MassResistance chapter:

And the word got around. There haven’t been any Black Lives Matter or Antifa problems in Montana.

How civilized life was intended

This is, of course, what the founders of America intended. Regular citizens who have a stake in the community are supposed to be able to protect themselves and others, especially at times of civil unrest. For most of our history, that’s how things were.

Unfortunately, in most of the country people now continue to live in fear of uncontrolled, lunatic mobs burning and looting buildings, tearing down monuments at will, and even attacking (and sometimes killing) bystanders. People living in fear and insecurity gives power to the Left and elected officials. And to make things even worse, the fake-news media viciously distort legitimate self-defense by citizens. But it’s not what America is all about.

ALT TEXT This was the scene in Boston the night after the election. Rabid "protesters" came and took over the streets. The Governor had to call in the National Guard to keep them from destroying property and looting. {Photo: Boston Herald]

Other attributes in Montana

Montana is quite civilized and normal. This is largely because most citizens are serious about preserving their Constitutional rights. And it’s much more than just self-protection.

They have maintained fair elections: At the polls, voters always had to show their photo ID to cast their ballot. Although this time most counties opted instead to go to mailed-in ballots, local election offices still kept the process clean. (It helped that many Montanans hand-delivered their ballots to election offices, rather than trust the US Mail.)

As a result of having a legitimate process, President Trump won Montana with 57% of the vote, and Republicans won the races for Governor, US Senate, US House, and all the major statewide offices.

We’ll see what happens in the rest of the country …

VIENNA, AUSTRIA: Another Terrorist Released Early, Another Deadly Terror Attack

After being captured while trying to join the Islamic State, Kujtim Fejzulai, a dual citizen of Austria and North Macedonia, was sentenced to 22 months in prison. However, after showing a positive attitude and completing Muslim deradicalization programs, he was released early. Once released, he assembled a variety of weapons and launched a terrorist attack in Vienna (where he was born), killing four and insuring fourteen others. Fejzulai was killed by police. David Wood discusses the terror attack and its connection to the Quran and the Islamic doctrines of jihad and taqiyya.

The flawed policy of releasing convicted terrorists before they have completed their sentences has once again struck a lethal blow. This time it happened in the Austrian capital of Vienna.

A man armed with a handgun, assault rifle, and machete attacked innocent civilians Monday outside the Seitenstettengasse synagogue, killing four and wounding several others including a police officer responding to the incident. Witnesses said they heard the man shouting "Allahu Akbar" during the attack.

The gunman was killed by responding officers within 10 minutes of the attack. Authorities are now investigating whether this was part of a larger terror network or a lone wolf acting on his own. The terrorist was identified as Kujtim Fejzulai, a 20-year-old with dual citizenship in Austria and Northern Macedonia.

Following the identification, the descriptive phrase "was previously known ..." was once again uttered by investigators. Fejzulai had been convicted of providing material support for a terrorist organization following his capture in Syria when attempting to join ISIS. He was sentenced in April 2019 to 22 months in prison. However, because of his age and Austria's lenient policies regarding youthful offenders, he was released in December having served just 8 months of his original sentence.

"He [Fejzulai] was young and enjoyed the privileges of the laws pertaining to minors," said Austrian Interior Minister Karl Nehammer, explaining why Fejzulai was released early from prison.

Fejzulai "managed to deceive the judicial system's deradicalization program" to secure his release," Nehammer said.

Fejzulai managed to fool others regarding his radicalization. His attorney, Nikolaus Rast, said he saw his client as "completely harmless" after meeting in the 2019 case. Rast seemed to believe Fejzulai's conversion to a radical form of Islam was the result of some unfortunate coincidence of fate.

"He was a young man who was searching for his place in society, who apparently went to the wrong mosque, [and]ended up in the wrong circles," Rast said.

As ridiculous as that comment sounds, it does recognize that mosques, where radical imams are free to coax the vulnerable to the glories of jihad, can play an important role in the radicalization process.

It's not the first time.

In 1994, Rashid Baz, a New York City cab driver, attended the Islamic Society of Bay Ridge mosque. While there, Baz listened to a fiery anti-Semitic sermon calling for the death of Jews, preached by one of the Imams. Following that experience, Baz attacked a van full of Orthodox Jewish students on the Brooklyn Bridge with automatic weapons, killing 16-year-old Ari Halberstam and wounding several others.

London's Finsbury mosque offers another example of this phenomenon. It was there a former ex-con named Richard Reid heard the call for jihad by radical imams such as Abu Hamza, and responded in 2001 by placing an explosive device in his footwear and attempted to blow up an American Airlines flight from Paris to Miami.

Social media is another catalyst in the radicalization process.

Just before waging the Vienna attack, Kujtim Fejzulai posted a photo of himself holding a machete, a handgun, and an AK-47 on Instagram while pledging allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurashi.

This was not Fejzulai's first foray into social media. Officials had been monitoring him after he posted extremist missives on the internet prior to his 2019 conviction, and also after his December prison release, Nehammer said. He did not say why Fejzulai was not returned to prison after his internet activity was discovered. Perhaps that was not considered a violation of Fejzulai's post-release guidelines.

Austrian security officials were notified in July by Slovakia's intelligence services that Fejzulai had attempted to purchase ammunition there. That information was never acted upon.

Had it been, perhaps four innocent people would still be alive.

Nehammer is now calling for an immediate examination of the effectiveness of Austria's de-radicalization program. We would hope that the examination results in changes, such as mandates for training staff to see through the "jail wise" cons used by incarcerated Islamic terrorists to feign rehabilitation, as Fejzulai did. We would also hope that stringent post-release conditions would be placed on every paroled terrorist.

A change in the laws governing early release of terrorists would also be a step in the right direction. The UK took that important step earlier this year after two terrorist attacks by jihadists released early from prison.

Both Usman Khan and Sudesh Amman were serving time in UK prisons for terror related crimes when they were granted early release under the UK's older sentencing laws. After their release, they were separately killed by police as they mounted terror attacks, despite being under police surveillance. Khan stabbed at least two individuals to death on the London Bridge in November 2019; Amman stabbed two people in Streatham, London, in February 2020.

Waiting until another terror attack occurs before considering changes to counter terrorism strategies is a dangerous policy. Rehabilitation and de-radicalization programs are well-intentioned goals; however, they cannot be the primary goal in combating radical Islamic terrorism.

"Protecting the public is Government's first duty..." as the UK's Justice Secretary Robert Buckland reminded us in February.

And unless immediate security measures are taken to stop the prison door from opening early for convicted terrorists, more violent acts like these will continue. And that is unacceptable.

Austria: All 14 of those detained in connection with Vienna jihad massacre are Muslim migrants

Wait, there’s more.

Tashfeen Malik, one of the San Bernardino jihad mass murderers, passed five separate background checks at five different U.S. agencies. The U.S. government policy still (we may hope President Trump will change this soon) doesn’t even recognize the existence of Islamic jihad; how can officials possibly vet for it.

More of what Bishop Malone doesn’t mention: Somali Muslim migrant Mohammad Barry in February 2016 stabbed multiple patrons at a restaurant owned by an Israeli Arab Christian; Ahmad Khan Rahami, an Afghan Muslim migrant, in September 2016 set off bombs in New York City and New Jersey; Arcan Cetin, a Turkish Muslim migrant, in September 2016 murdered five people in a mall in Burlington, Washington; Dahir Adan, another Somali Muslim migrant, in October 2016 stabbed mall shoppers in St. Cloud while screaming “Allahu akbar”; and Abdul Razak Artan, yet another Somali Muslim migrant, in November 2016 injured nine people with car and knife attacks at Ohio State University. 72 jihad terrorists have come to the U.S. from the countries listed in Trump’s immigration ban.

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

As President, Joe Biden has pledged he will increase “refugee” intake by 700%. No vetting of the new arrivals will be done; that would be “Islamophobic.” What could possibly go wrong?

“Austrian Interior Minister: All Those Held in Connection to Vienna Attack Have Migration Background,” Sputnik News, November 4, 2020 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Four people were killed and more than a dozen injured, several of them critically, in Monday’s attack in the Austrian capital. The 20-year-old perpetrator was shot and killed by police. Authorities have classified the attack as a terrorist incident motivated by Islamist extremism.

All those detained in connection with Monday’s terror attack in the centre of Vienna have a migrant background, and some are foreign nationals, Austrian Interior Minister Karl Nehammer has said.

Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday, Nehammer also indicated that the arrested people were between the ages of 18 and 28, and are under investigation for suspected involvement in a terrorist organisation. Police earlier reported that 14 people had been detained in Austria after raids at 18 separate locations.

The interior minister added that more than a terabyte of video evidence of the attacks from eyewitnesses confirmed the lone attacker theory to be true, and showed the brutality and cruelty with which they took place.

Nehammer also reported that Slovak officials had informed their Austrian neighbours of ammunition possibly being bought by the terror suspect inside Slovakia, but “something went wrong” and that an “apparent miscommunication” took place between Austrian agencies after the intelligence was received.

“In the past few hours information has come to light that some time before the terror attack, Slovakian intelligence informed BVT [Austrian intelligence] about the attacker. The information was that he wanted to get ammunition,” Nehammer  said.

The minister blamed his predecessor Herbert Kickl for weakening the capabilities of Austria’s domestic intelligence service and causing it “lasting damage”.

Nehammer also repeated that the attacker had fooled Austria’s deradicalisation programme “perfectly”, leading to his early release from custody on terrorism-related charges late last year….

 


BLM activist Cori Bush becomes Missouri’s first black congresswoman

A Black Lives Matter activist in Missouri breezed to an election night victory to become the state’s first black congresswoman.

Cori Bush, who may become the fifth member of “The Squad,” garnered a whopping 84 percent of vote in the state’s 1st Congressional District.

“This is definitely a night to remember,” Bush, who is also a nurse, told her supporters during her acceptance speech.

“This has been a historic day from the beginning to the end.”

Bush had the backing of the Justice Democrats — who helped propel Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to her first upset victory over 10-term incumbent Joe Crowley.

In her August Democratic primary, Bush had her own upset victory, defeating longtime incumbent, Missouri Rep. William Lacy Clay.

Bush got involved with the Black Lives Matter movement in 2014, when Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager, was shot and killed by a white police officer in Ferguson.

She joined the protests that erupted in the wake of the shooting and soon began leading the protests in her Missouri district.

Bush has remained engaged in protest work ever since, getting heavily involved in the recent protests surrounding the murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.

 

Hundreds Arrested in Minneapolis Protest Against Trump

More than 600 marchers were arrested on Wednesday night after blocking traffic on I-94 in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota. Earlier, several dozen protesters set off fireworks and spray-painted business storefronts leading to the arrest of 14.

The unrest occurred after Donald Trump demanded that counting ballots in some states be halted because state laws were being violated.

Fox News:

A few dozen protesters marched through the city’s Uptown neighborhood, lighting fireworks and carrying a banner that read “America is Over” as presidential election results started to come in.

The protesters also blocked traffic, spray-painted storefronts, and threw traffic signs and debris into the streets, police told Fox News in a statement.

Everything was fine until the mostly peaceful marchers started to shoot fireworks into the ranks of police.

Police at the scene maintained their distance from the protesters until members of the group shot firecrackers at officers and refused to obey orders, police spokesman John Elder said in the press release.

Police arrested 12 adult females and one adult male on suspicion of rioting. One adult female was also arrested for fourth-degree assault in addition to the rioting suspicion charge.

It’s an intriguing notion that after 140 million people went to the polls to elect the next president that this is an indication that “America is over.” If anything it shows we’re just getting started.

But most of the action last night happened on I-94 near downtown as hundreds of people spilled out on to the interstate playing chicken with drivers until the police finally closed the highway.

KNSI:

State troopers and Minneapolis police cited 646 people for walking on the highway and being a public nuisance after the protest that started on the streets of Minneapolis spilled onto 94.

No chemical irritants or force were used, and no one was hurt.

94 was shut down between Highway 280 in St. Paul and Interstate 35W in Minneapolis for hours while people were cited. The roadway finally reopened at 1:23 a.m.

The State Patrol and Minneapolis police were assisted by the Hennepin County Sherriff’s Office, University of Minnesota Police Department, and Metro Transit Police.

Under Minnesota law, it is illegal for pedestrian, bicycle, or non-motorized traffic to be on the freeway.

The state police felt it necessary to explain to the children why walking on a highway is dangerous.

This is a preview of what we’re in store for if Trump wins re-election. The kids will stomp their feet and throw a tantrum any time Trump does something they don’t much care for — which will probably be nearly every day. God help us if they get really mad.
