Alex Newman: Using Bribery and Threats, China Seizes Another UN Agency

by Alex Newman

Using bribery and threats, the Communist Chinese regime in Beijing just secured control over the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (UN FAO), a key UN agency with a massive budget. Several Western governments tried unsuccessfully to stop the takeover by Communist Chinese operative Qu Dongyu (shown). Especially alarming to observers is the fact that the regime openly boasts that its nationals at international agencies must continue obeying orders from the Communist Party of China. Indeed, the Communist Chinese then-president of Interpol was arrested during a visit to China, with officials saying he was obligated to obey party orders.

But the latest victory for the most murderous dictatorship in human history represents only the most recent international organization to fall into China’s hands. Indeed, a fast-growing number of UN organs are already under Chinese control including the agency being groomed to control the Internet, the agency overseeing air travel, and other powerful UN bureaucracies. And if Beijing and its powerful Western allies get their way, this will not be the last UN outfit to come under Beijing’s control. The implications for freedom in light of Beijing’s growing role in what globalists describe as the “New World Order” are enormous.

The UN FAO selection process was hardly legitimate, sources in Rome and Washington told The New American and other publications. Indeed, a diplomatic source quoted by the French newspaper Le Monde said that Beijing had given African candidate Médi Moungui a multi-million dollar bribe in exchange for withdrawing from the race. Multiple UN FAO ambassadors sustained “intense Chinese pressure.” Various media outlets around the world even reported that Beijing had threatened at least several national governments, including those in Brazil and Uruguay, with a ban on agricultural exports to China if they failed to support Qu. Communist regimes such as the mass-murdering dictatorship enslaving Cuba openly backed Qu.

While the election is based on a secret ballot, it is known that Qu secured 108 votes in the first round of voting. The next closest candidate was Catherine Geslain-Lanéelle, a euro-socialist from France with the full backing of the European Union superstate who secured 71 votes. Coming in third place was Davit Kirvalidze from the nation of Georgia, who, despite backing by the Trump administration and some of its allies, barely got a dozen votes. The decision was made by the UN FAO’s 194 member governments and dictatorships, all of which get one vote. The agency has more than 11,000 employees and is one of the largest in the UN system.

Qu and his masters in the Communist Party of China could barely contain their glee. “I’m very grateful to my motherland,” the communist operative declared after winning the secretive selection process. “Without 40 years of successful reforms and open-door policy I would not have been where I am,” he said in his first speech, proudly sporting a lapel pin promoting the totalitarian UN Agenda 2030 that Beijing said it played a “crucial role” in developing. “Now the election is over and I will be committed to the original aspiration, mandate and mission of the organization.”

Among the various policies Qu has touted was a massive surge in what he called “Vitamin M,” or “money.” In a speech, he called for boosting the organization’s funding — already at almost $3 billion per year — by 10 percent annually for every year of his term. And in April, while campaigning for the post, Qu called for “changes” in the “production and consumption” of agricultural goods around the world under the guise of environmentalism. This comes directly out of the Agenda 2030 scheme, described by UN leaders as the “master plan for humanity” and a “global declaration of interdependence.”

Back in Beijing, Qu’s overlords were overjoyed, too. Qu’s victory was a “show of high appreciation of China’s support for multilateralism and advancing global development,” according to Communist Chinese “foreign ministry” spokesman Geng Shuang. Geng vowed that the dictatorship, which starved millions of people to death in the not-too-distant past, would “continue to work with other countries to promote the development of the global food and agriculture industries.” That should be highly troubling to advocates of freedom and private land ownership.

The new director-general, who served as “vice minister for agriculture and rural affairs,” will replace Brazilian communist Jose Graziano, whose term has been marked by seemingly never-ending scandal. Among other outrages, Graziano has worked to shut down honest reporting and criticism of his tenure. In one especially outrageous case, the Brazilian radical even sought to destroy the Italian Insider newspaper while having its editor jailed under arcane local laws. Graziano was outraged that the Rome-based publication was exposing various scandals and misdeeds among FAO leadership, and so, in totalitarian fashion, sought to crush his perceived enemies using the power of government.

Graziano is also a longtime ally of disgraced former Brazilian President Luis Inacio “Lula” da Silva, a Marxist revolutionary sitting in jail for corruption. The outgoing FAO boss has also used corruption and nepotism to try to advance the communist takeover of Latin America while trying to protect communist criminals from prosecution by granting them diplomatic immunity. Under Graziano, FAO even awarded honors to the imploding socialist dictatorship in Venezuela for its efforts to “fight hunger” — even as much of the population literally survived by eating garbage, pets, and zoo animals. Unsurprisingly, Graziano was fully behind Qu.

As The New American has been documenting for many years, the Communist Chinese dictatorship, with the full support of subversive Western globalists, has been busy accumulating more and more influence within the emerging “global governance” system. Indeed, there are more Chinese nationals in charge of UN bureaucracies than any other nation or government. Until recently, even the self-styled global “police” agency Interpol was under Communist Chinese control.

Other UN agencies under China’s control include the UN International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), which is pushing global taxes on air travel. Also run by a Communist Chinese agent is the UN Industrial Development Organization, a disgraced entity helping to build up hostile Third World regimes such as the murderous dictatorships in North Korea and Cuba with Western money and technology. Another key UN entity run by a Communist Chinese agent is the UN International Telecommunications Union (ITU), which is seeking global censorship and controls of the Internet. Also under Communist Chinese control is the powerful UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA). Beijing has agents serving as deputy leaders of multiple UN organizations as well.

Communist Chinese agents are also embedded all throughout the IMF, the World Bank, and beyond. Numerous UN agreements and conferences have featured Chinese Communists as leading players, including the UN Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro, which was chaired by a Chi-Com agent. The Party-controlled autocracy even opened a “School of Global Governance” at the Beijing Foreign Studies University to train legions of Communist Chinese agents to penetrate the institutions of the so-called New World Order, as Western and Chinese globalists refer to the emerging global regime.

Taiwan Ministry of Foreign Affairs Spokeswoman Joanne Ou warned that Beijing was “systematically deploying its officers to occupy high-ranking management positions in many important organizations, purporting to alter their policies and operations to serve its own national interests,” local media reported. Behind the scenes and increasingly out in the open, senior officials from Western governments are starting to wake up to the increasing threat of Communist Chinese influence operations.

Qu’s widely touted role as Beijing’s “vice minister for agriculture” should itself have been a giant red flag for governments around the world. Among the atrocities being perpetrated against the Chinese people under the guise of “agricultural reform,” for instance, is the wholesale uprooting of families and communities from their land. These rural people are currently being herded — often at gunpoint — into emerging new mega-cities being constructed by Beijing in accordance with UN “sustainability” schemes such as Agenda 21, Agenda 2030, and more.

Qu has also worked on the dictatorship’s so-called Belt and Road scheme, whereby Beijing intends to expand its totalitarian tentacles across Eurasia. Numerous UN agencies — especially those under Beijing’s control — are hard at work helping China to promote and advance the Belt and Road project. And they do not even bother to hide it anymore.

Qu will take up his post on August 1, with his first term ending in 2023. His salary alone will be more than double President Donald Trump’s pay. With the UN’s agricultural department firmly under Beijing’s grasp, the regime is now working to install Andy Tsang Wai-hung as head of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime. The U.S. taxpayer funds about one third of the FAO’s bloated budget. And there is already talk in the White House about defunding or withdrawing from the FAO. But that is not enough. It is time for the United States and other civilized and free nations to abandon the corrupt UN and its Communist Chinese-controlled tentacles before the threat grows even more severe.

Alex Newman: Texas Under Pressure to Sexualize Kindergarteners

by Alex Newman

Under the guise of promoting “sexual health” and adapting to modernity, education authorities and front groups for Big Abortion in Texas are plotting to sexualize children as young kindergarten. The consequences could be devastating.

Leading the charge to corrupt young Texans is Texas Education Board Commissioner Mike Morath, who is working to overhaul the state’s already radical sex-ed standards. Among other topics, Morath is hoping to present information on “sexual risk reduction methods,” “healthy relationships,” and “anatomy” to children as young as 4 and 5.

“By the end of middle school, adolescents should understand sexual risk avoidance as the primary goal and learn sexual risk reduction methods that may be needed later in their lives,” Morath wrote in recommendations on how to update Texas sex-ed programs. He added that government schools can and should “play an important role” in teaching children about sex.

Also working to indoctrinate young children in Texas is the fringe leftwing group “Texas Freedom Network.” Among other topics, the group wants more LGBT propaganda added in. It also complains that because more than half of Texas children supposedly become sexually active before leaving high-school, that all children must learn perversion at school.

The outfit, which works to demonize and marginalize Christians and other people with traditional values, is at the forefront of attacking Texas’ current sex-ed programs. Establishment media outlets have given the fringe group endless free media coverage, without ever mentioning that it was founded by recently departed Planned Parenthood boss and pro-abortion fanatic Cecile Richards.

Another deception being parroted by the fake media is the idea that Texas has more teen pregnancies than other states. What the advocates of sexualizing children refuse to mention is that this is only because Texas girls are far less likely to kill their unborn babies in abortions.

There are reportedly several sensible experts on the advisory panel considering changes to the sex-ed program. However, they are under relentless pressure from advocates of sexualizing and grooming children at the earliest possible ages.

Especially infuriating to sex-ed peddlers are the experts who oppose killing unborn babies and who believe what the Bible says about sex: that it should be reserved for marriage. The evidence also shows that the biblical view of marriage is best from a health and mental health perspective.

The final vote on updating Texas’s sex-ed standards is expected in September of 2020.

The Takeaway

From sexually transmitted diseases and mental scars to learning problems and future marital issues, encouraging children to fornicate and engage in perversion and debauchery has horrifying consequences that will result in life-long damage. It is time for Americans and Texans to “just say no” to the sexualization of children.

Alex Newman: California Goes Full Orwell: “Cradle-to-Career” Data Scheme 

by Alex Newman

Blazing ahead on the highway to a full-blown Orwellian society, California just approved a new comprehensive “education” data regime that is being touted by Governor Gavin Newsom and lawmakers as a “Cradle-to-Career Data System.”

While details are still being worked out, it is clear that this massive data-gathering machine is intended to vacuum up every sort of information imaginable on California children. The intrusive surveillance and tracking will begin at birth and extends through work life. Health data will be included, too.

The scheme was strongly supported by Governor Newsom. In fact, on the very first page of his proposed budget for the year, the radical left-wing politician demanded $10 million to start building the enormous data regime.

The purpose of it all, Newsom said, is “to better track student outcomes and increase the alignment of our educational system to the state’s workforce needs.” In short, government central planning is the admitted goal — though certainly not the only one.

The “Cradle-to-Career Data System Act” was approved overwhelmingly as part of a broader “education” bill. In the Senate, SB 75 was approved by a massive landslide of 31 in favor versus 7 against. In the Assembly, the vote was 62 to 14 in favor.

A “workgroup” under the supervision of the executive branch will bring together “social justice” groups, unions, Big Tech bosses, Big Business, and other special interests to determine what data to collect and what exactly to do with it. More details on the scheme are expected by July of next year.

For now, the legislation calls for integrating K-12 data with higher education data. After that, the next phase will include workforce data, “early education” data, preschool data, health data, and much more. It will all be linked together in the databases, which will be shared with the feds and special interests. Even private institutions are expected to provide data for Big Brother’s new scheme.

Would-be profiteers and totalitarians of all varieties celebrated the legislation, disgorging platitudes on the supposed wonders it will do for “education” and the “children.” Critics, though, sounded the alarm.

“Big data and technological progress are enabling leftist government officials to take totalitarianism socialism to unforeseen heights,” explained popular liberty-minded commentator Shane Trejo in a piece about the new data-gathering scheme in California. “George Orwell must be spinning in his grave.”

Meanwhile, as The Newman Report has documented, more than half of California children cannot read, and over 25 percent are “gender non-conforming.” Obviously, education is not the goal here.

The Takeaway

As long as parents continue allowing the government to brainwash and data-rape their children in government schools, the abuse will continue to get more extreme. The government has no business gathering this private data from children and families. It is past time for parents to “just say no!”

Alex Newman: False Attack on FreedomProject Shreds “PolitiFact” Credibility

by Alex Newman

In a ham-handed effort to mislead concerned parents and protect the education establishment, the far-left “fact checking” website PolitiFact has again exposed itself as a dishonest purveyor of misleading propaganda rather than a genuine fact-checking service. Aside from the scam website Snopes, which recently defended the teaching of child rape to children in a ludicrous attack on FreedomProject, Politifact may be the most dishonest “fact checking” service around.

This particular story began in January when FreedomProject’s The Newman Report exposed California’s proposed new “Health Education Framework” and the gender-bending propaganda within it. FreedomProject leader Dr. Duke Pesta and this writer went on to produce a video focusing on one point in particular: The HEF’s recommendation of the controversial book Who Are You?: The Kid’s Guide to Gender Identity

Among other absurdities, the book, recommended in the Kindergarten through 3rd grade section of the HEF, teaches children that they can choose from an infinite variety of “genders” that may not match their “sex assigned at birth.” Examples of choices offered include “trans, genderqueer, non-binary, gender fluid, transgender, gender neutral, agender, neutrois, bigender, third gender, two-spirit,” and more. This is described in the book as the “gender spectrum.”

“Some people say there are only two genders. But there are really many genders,” the book teaches children as young as 4. “I am … girl boy both neither just me! You are who you say you are, because YOU know best. For some people, the grown-ups guessed right about their body and their gender. This is called cisgender — when someone’s identity matches their sex assigned at birth. And for some people, there are more than just two choices.”

The FreedomProject video exposing this insanity — widely regarded by experts as child abuse — reached over 5 million people on Facebook. It also sparked a national outcry that shocked California’s fringe political establishment. After the massive scandal, education policymakers in the state retreated slightly. Indeed, in press release issued just last month, they even announced that the book “Who Are You?” would be removed from the Health Education Framework.

However, the latest version of the HEF posted on the California Department of Education’s website still includes the book as of June 27. Indeed, Politifact reported that an official had promised to remove the book in revisions due “in a couple of months,” and until then, there was not even a public notice that the extremist propaganda would supposedly be removed from the HEF.

And yet, that supposed decision to remove it is the crux of PolitiFact’s rating of “false” the notion that California was planning to teach children that there are at least 15 “genders” they could choose from. Even if it is true that the state backed down and removed the book in May, which at this point is far from clear since no version of the HEF has been released without the book, the article and video produced by FreedomProject were entirely accurate when they were produced in January.

Claiming that the claim is “false” because months after it was made, the state supposedly revised its materials is the height of dishonesty. Imagine Politifact and its hack “fact checker” Amy Sherman going back to fact check New York Times articles from 2004 about the Iraq War and claiming the articles were “false” because the U.S. government had largely removed it forces by 2019. That is how absurd the website’s attack on FreedomProject’s reporting is.

PolitiFact also claimed, falsely, that FreedomProject had reported that the book was mandatory. In reality, Dr. Pesta was very clear in the video that it was a “recommendation,” which in practical terms means it will be used. “The State of California has recommended — and when California recommends something, that means they want it in there — they’ve recommended a book for 5-year olds to begin to comprehend the complicated nature of gender,” he said in the video.

What FreedomProject did report is what the State of California has been explaining openly for many months: Parents may not opt their children out of state-mandated LGBT indoctrination. This is stated openly and clearly all over California Department of Education websites and materials, and can be verified with a quick check. PolitiFact apparently hopes nobody will read past their bogus “false” rating — much less investigate their report — to discover the truth.

The Takeaway

The fact that fake “fact-checking” websites are brazenly lying about FreedomProject and its reporting to conceal the truth is actually very good news. It means the work of FreedomProject exposing this evil perpetrated against America’s children is highly effective. And it has the establishment and its toadies in the business of fake “fact checking” worried sick. Still, because the far-left Facebook partners with PolitiFact, legal options are being considered to deal with the malicious libel. Stay tuned.

Alex Newman: Growing Push to Teach Bible in Government Schools

by Alex Newman

WILLIAMSTOWN, Kentucky — Across America, states are looking to Kentucky for guidance on teaching the Bible in government schools without arousing the wrath of lawless federal courts determined to stamp out God’s Word.

Under a bill signed two years ago, students in Kentucky are allowed to take elective Bible classes at government schools, provided the Bible is not presented as the inerrant Word of God—a fundamental doctrine of the Christian faith.

After Kentucky, Georgia and Arkansas passed similar legislation. At least 10 others have introduced bills to do the same. Project Blitz is leading the charge nationwide.

The idea is to ensure that students understand their heritage as well as the foundations of their civilization and the great literature of the Western world, supporters say.

However, the Bible will not be taught as God’s Word due to rogue federal court decisions purporting to outlaw that. And many Christians have expressed concerns that anti-Christian zealots would use the course to demonize Scripture and those who believe it.

Still, supporters said it was important to allow children to be exposed to the Bible.

“It really did set the foundation that our Founding Fathers used to develop documents like the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights,” Kentucky Rep. D.J. Johnson (R-Owensboro) was quoted as saying by local news service WDRB when the bill passed there. “All of those came from principles from the Bible.”

Governor Matt Bevin, who has developed a national reputation as a true conservative, also expressed strong support for the measure when he signed it in June of 2017.

“The idea that we would not want this to be an option for people in school, that would be crazy. I don’t know why every state would not embrace this, why we as a nation would not embrace this,” the governor told supporters at the bill signing. “You could be an atheist, and you would appreciate there’s a lot of wisdom in the Bible.”

Under the legislation, local school boards are allowed to offer an elective course on Bible literacy as part of the “social studies” curriculum.

The measure was approved overwhelmingly by the state legislature. And across America, the idea is tremendously popular.

Even President Trump has expressed support. “Numerous states introducing Bible Literacy classes, giving students the option of studying the Bible,” he tweeted in January. “Starting to make a turn back? Great!”

On the other side of the debate, the ACLU and various other fringe far-left organizations are foaming at the mouth in outrage. The increasingly unhinged Washington Post even claimed it was “unconstitutional.”

The Takeaway

The Supreme Court never had the power to ban Bible reading and prayer in schools. And it certainly did not have the power to establish the dangerous false religion of humanism using government schools to conscript children.

Alex Newman: Study: Common Core Had “Significant Negative Effect” on Students

by Alex Newman

A barely noticed study on the Obama-backed Common Core scheme revealed that the controversial national “education” standards caused a “significant” decline in student achievement.

Basically, if the Common Core scheme had never existed, students would have been much better off, according to researchers at the federally funded Center on Standards, Alignment, Instruction and Learning (C-SAIL).

Results show that student performance declined in both reading and math as a result of Common Core, the researchers noted.

“Contrary to our expectation, we found that [Common Core] had significant negative effects on 4th graders’ reading achievement during the 7 years after the adoption of the new standards,” the study found.

Indeed, Common Core is packed with quackery such as the “sight-word” method that was first exposed as a dangerous failure over 150 years ago when it was tried in Boston. Even contributors to the Common Core reading section are blowing the whistle!

The controversial standards also “had a significant negative effect on 8th graders’ math achievement 7 years after adoption based on analyses of [National Assessment of Educational Progress] composite scores,” according to the analysis.

Researchers were surprised a how bad it was. Mengli Song, one of the authors of the study, noted that it is getting worse, too. “It’s rather unexpected,” Song explained. “The magnitude of the negative effects [of Common Core] tend to increase over time. That’s a little troubling.”

The results, which come after the politically toxic scheme has infested everything to do with education, confirm once again that the critics have been right all along.

The only two subject matter experts on the Common Core Validation Committee tried to warn Americans about it, too. Some of it was even based on incorrect math!

Common Core has been a total disaster for education, as FreedomProject Academy and FreedomProject Media have been warning consistently since the scheme was established. But of course, the disaster began long before Common Core.

And despite false statements from U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, Common Core is more firmly entrenched today than it was in the final year of the Barack Obama administration.

The Takeaway

As Ronald Reagan’s National Commission on Excellence in Education warned in 1983, the disaster in public “education” literally threatens the future of America as a nation and a people.

It is time for the fraudulent “education” system to be exposed and replaced with real education before even more children are irreparably harmed — and the nation itself is destroyed.

Alex Newman: Parents Sue After Second Grade Teacher Tries To Convince 8-Year-Old Boy He Was A Girl

by Alex Newman

Outraged parents are suing an Oregon school district after a government-school teacher repeatedly tried to convince their son that he was a girl trapped in a boy’s body, causing severe emotional trauma to the child. Similar horrors are taking place in public schools across America.

According to a report in local Fox affiliate KPTV, the boy was held back from recess multiple times in April of 2018 by the teacher at Nellie Muir Elementary School.

During these incidents, the teacher reportedly pestered the boy about whether he was “transgender.” The child was also forced to watch videos and read about gender-confusion, referred to by school officials as “transgenderism.”

And now, the boy is suffering, big time, his parents reported.

“He feels different now, he feels confused,” the mother was quoted as saying, requesting anonimity to protect the family’s privacy. “To hear your son say that…on a couch talking to a therapist, holding back tears – it’s very heartbreaking.”

The parents are suffering too, with the mother taking medical leave from work and the father now dealing with panic attacks.

The mother only found out about it all because the teacher ordered the child to read books about transgenderism, which the mother found in her son’s backpack.

School officials are claiming that the boy had said he felt like a girl before the extreme transgender indoctrination began. But the father says that even if that were true, it is no excuse for what happened.

“She should have notified us if that was the case, if he did say he felt like a girl,” said the boy’s father. Indeed, if it is true that the boy expressed confusion, it was almost certainly a result of propaganda at school.

Across America, though, government schools have adopted policies to keep parents in the dark about “sexual identity” and “gender” issues.

In any case, the parents believe the teacher began pestering the child because he was using the staff restroom due to embarrassment about a stomach issue — not because he was confused about whether he was a boy or girl.

The Oregon parents in this case, however, want others to know about the secret indoctrination taking place at Nellie Muir Elementary School. Similar outrages and abuses—the American College of Pediatricians has referred to transgender propaganda as “child abuse” — are occurring nationwide.

But it could have been worse for this family. As The Newman Report documented in November, government-school officials in Minnesota actually took a child to have his genitals surgically removed in a “sex change” operation in defiance of the parents. A lawsuit is currently underway in that case, too.

The Takeaway

Parents who trust government schools with their children are putting those children in grave danger, as this case illustrates. Ultimately, it is up to parents to protect their children from the madness and abuse that has overtaken the “public education” system.

Alex Newman: Harvard Diversity Speaker: Christians & Jews Should Be “Locked Up”

by Alex Newman

Activist Tim Wise spoke at Harvard University’s annual “diversity” conference despite having said that Christians and Jews who believe the Bible “deserve to be locked up” due to an alleged “utter inability to deal with reality.” He later claimed to be “sorta kidding but not by much.” People of faith also should be “politically destroyed” and “deserve to be mocked viciously and run out of the public square,” he said.

The anti-Christian, anti-Semitic bigot, who styles himself an “antiracist essayist,” was the keynote speaker on April 25 at an annual “diversity” conference at Harvard Faculty of Arts and Sciences. Dubbed “A Decade of Dialogue,” the event, ironically, was supposed to provide “a retrospective look at diversity and inclusion, a discussion of current issues, and practical guidance on how we can move toward greater inclusion and belonging at Harvard.”

Presumably that “inclusion” does not apply to Christians, Jews, or even Muslims. Indeed, Wise — a straight white male, as The College Fix observed — has a long history of publicly expressing vitriolic hatred against people of faith. Harvard, however, described him as “a prominent anti-racism writer, educator, and activist.”

Consider some comments he made in 2015. “This is America…people basing their beliefs on the fable of Noah and Ark, or their interpretation of Sodom and Gomorrah…rather than science or logic…If you are basing your morality on a fairy tale written thousands of years ago, you deserve to be locked up…detained for your utter inability to deal with reality,” he said, with the ellipses all included in the original post.

“NO, we are not obligated to indulge your irrationality in the name of your religious freedom,” Wise continued. “But we will provide you a very comfortable room, against which walls you may hurl yourself hourly if your choose. Knock yourself out….seriously, knock yourself out, completely, for weeks at a time.”

After spewing his venom, he added, “I’m sorta kidding but not by much.” Then he proceeded to disgorge even more hatred. “I do think they have to be politically destroyed, utterly rendered helpless to the cause of pluralism and democracy,” he said. “They have no right to impose their bullshit on others. They can either change, or shut the hell up, or practice their special brand of crazy in their homes…or go away.”

He also made clear that he hates Muslims and other people of faith, too. “And this argument applies to any fundamentalist religionist of any faith who thinks they have a right to impose their beliefs on a secular, pluralistic society,” he said. “Go away.” It was not immediately clear why he felt entitled to impose his moral beliefs on society, or what his source of moral beliefs actually is.

Keep in mind that this anti-Christian extremist, who regularly and viciously demonizes Christians with terms such as “extremist Jeezoids,” spoke at a university that was literally founded to help spread the Gospel of Christ. Harvard’s original mission statement put it well: “Let every student be plainly instructed, and earnestly pressed to consider well, the main end of his life and studies is to know God and Jesus Christ which is eternal life (John 17:3), and therefore to lay Christ in the bottom, as the only foundation of all sound knowledge and learning.”

The Takeaway

The hatred against Christians and biblical morality is getting progressively more extreme, and most of it is due to the so-called “education” system. That Harvard would invite a violently hateful individual like Wise to give a keynote address is merely a sign of the times. And it is getting worse. If the government-sponsored anti-Christian indoctrination continues, the unhinged hate will increasingly move from rhetoric to action. Christians must be prepared.

Alex Newman: Is Kremlin Using School Children as Dupes in “Climate” Protests?

by Alex Newman

Across Europe and beyond, indoctrinated school children have been marching out of their classrooms and on to the streets to protest against “climate change.” But rather than just being the spontaneous actions of brainwashed victims of government schools, a number of high-profile voices have suggested that there is something more at work here: the Kremlin.

The most high-profile child being exploited by adults with an agenda is Greta Thunberg. As The Newman Report reported from the UN “climate” conference in Poland, the autistic Swedish girl’s face has been plastered across newspapers and TV screens worldwide by the establishment media. She began skipping school to protest “climate change.” And that promptly got her an audience with presidents, United Nations leaders, European Union bosses, and so on.

But now, there is good reason to believe that there is something even more sinister behind the exploitation of these whiny children by Western adults with sinister agendas. Consider the recent comments made by German Chancellor Angela Merkel at the Munich Security Conference. Speaking of Russian hybrid warfare and disinformation aimed at manipulating public opinion and destabilizing governments, Merkel suddenly mentioned the children protesting for the “climate.”

“In Germany now, children are protesting for climate protection – that is a really important issue,” said Merkel, a “former” communist who openly admits that her half-baked “climate” policies are making her nation more dependent on Russian energy. “But you can’t imagine that all German children, after years, and without any outside influence, suddenly hit on the idea that they have to take part in this process.” A spokesperson later tried to walk her comments back, but it was a bombshell.

Last month, Belgian “Climate” Minister Joke Schauvliege made very similar remarks about the brainwashed young “climate” activists. “I know who is behind this movement, both of the Sunday demonstrations and the truants,” she said in a speech. “I have also been told that from state security. I can guarantee that I do not see ghosts alone and that climate demonstrations are more than spontaneous actions of solidarity with our climate.” She was eventually forced out for saying that, but again, it was huge.

Obviously, plenty of these poor children really believe the lies they are being fed in their government schools. For instance, all over the Western world, captive children are being taught that the gas they exhale, carbon dioxide (aka the gas of life), is “pollution” that must be taxed and regulated by the UN to save humanity. It seems they never learn that human emissions of CO2 make up a fraction of 1 percent of all the “greenhouse” gases present naturally in the atmosphere.

But the idea that Russian authorities would be manipulating and weaponizing gullible, indoctrinated young people to march against their own freedom and energy security is hardly far-fetched. In fact, just last year, a congressional report exposed the Kremlin’s bankrolling of U.S. “environmental” groups dedicated to destroying the American energy industry. Russia, of course, is heavily dependent on its energy exports. And now that America is the largest energy producer in the world, the Kremlin is turning to dirty tricks.

The Takeaway

If Western children were being properly educated at school, there is no way the Russian government could convince them to go out and demand their own enslavement — much less get them to protest against the essential-to-life gas they exhale. But unfortunately, they are not being properly educated. Instead, they are being deliberately dumbed down and indoctrinated on an industrial scale.

Parents must step in to protect their children immediately, or their own offspring will end up being weaponized against faith, family, freedom and America. Whether the Russians or homegrown totalitarians do it matters little. What matters is that the future is literally at stake.

Alex Newman: California School Bans MAGA Hats, Student Fights Back

by Alex Newman

More than half of California’s children cannot read at even a proficient level, and more than a fourth of the state’s students are now “gender non-conforming.” Considering the crisis engulfing the state’s so-called “education system,” one would think that school officials would be scrambling for solutions.

But one would be wrong.

Instead, policymakers for at least one school district in California are working to prohibit students from wearing “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) hats. Yes, seriously.

While the Clovis Unified School District dress code does not specifically prohibit hats or shirts with political messages, officials decided that pro-Trump gear would not be allowed. At least one student has been told that she cannot wear a MAGA hat or any other pro-Trump clothing.

“Bottom line for us is the dress code is for kids to feel safe at school and free of distractions so they can focus on learning,” district spokesman Kelly Avants was quoted as saying in local media reports. “Here we are closer to shouting fire in a crowded theater.”

But for Clovis North High School senior Maddie Mueller, a member of “Valley Patriots” and a strong Trump supporter who was told not to wear a MAGA hat, that policy is outrageous.

“How does being a patriot in trying to show pride in your country, how is that inappropriate?” she asked. “I don’t care if I offend anybody I’m just showing support for the President and what I believe…. To my knowledge Trump is not a logo it’s a last name, it’s just our President, you can’t claim the President is a logo, sports team or affiliated with any gang.”

This is not the first time government schools in California have discriminated against students for choosing to wear clothing. As far back as 2010, school officials at Live Oak School ordered students not to wear shirts with American flags. And incredibly, the courts upheld the ban on the U.S. flag — in America!

Meanwhile, innocent children at government schools have been forced on multiple occasions to sing praises to former President Barack Hussein Obama and his agenda to “change” America. Incredibly, teachers even filmed the young victims of their dictatorship-style political indoctrination.

The Takeaway!

This blatant discrimination against conservative students and Trump supporters is only the tip of the iceberg. The government’s indoctrination system has become openly hostile to any ideas or values that contradict its own.

Considering the fact that over 85 percent of American children are captive in these institutions for five days a week, it is clear that freedom is in mortal danger. Americans must not allow this to stand.

Alex Newman: Wealth Redistribution and Globalism, for the Climate

Wealth Redistribution and Globalism, for the Climate  “And because nearly every human activity in the New World Order falls under the umbrella of “fighting climate change,” the importance of this effort is hard to overstate.” 

by Alex Newman

KATOWICE, Poland — The word “ambition” was on everybody’s lips during the United Nations climate summit, almost as if everyone was reading from the same script. But it was not the sort of ambition parents urge their children to show in their studies, their sports training, or their future careers. Instead, the term was being used to describe how “ambitious” the governments and totalitarians who made up the “Parties” of the COP24 climate conference would be in imposing draconian, unpopular, and, in many cases, totalitarian policies on the people they rule.

The attendees of the 24th “Conference of the Parties” intend to be fairly ambitious in centralizing and consolidating their power, though once again the participants did not get all they wanted.

After two weeks of negotiations and months of pre-negotiations, almost 200 governments and dictators from all over the world agreed on a massive and absurdly complicated document that promises to redistribute more wealth and institutionalize the mechanisms to control human emissions of carbon dioxide — and by extension, to control every human activity.

As is usual with such events, the resulting document is mind-numbingly complicated. In an official press release, even the UN itself described the agreement as a “complex and difficult document.” That may be an understatement. But the complexity was obviously by design. If humanity clearly understood what was happening — essentially the fastening of shackles on people and nations under the guise of controlling the climate — there would likely be blood running in the streets. The uprisings across France in response to a new carbon tax, one component of the overall agenda being pushed by the UN and its members, would seem mild by comparison.

And so the almost 150-page agreement inked in Katowice was written in a way that makes it virtually impenetrable to all but the most highly trained lawyers and policy wonks. But while the rules may be obscure and difficult to read, they are reportedly extremely important. And they assuredly will be, since the UN and other alarmist groups will surely find in them the power to do myriad things. As the state-funded BBC put it, these rules “will govern the way the world tackles climate change for decades to come.”

And because nearly every human activity in the New World Order falls under the umbrella of “fighting climate change,” the importance of this effort is hard to overstate.

Officially, the document, being referred to as everything from the “Paris Agreement Working Programme” to the “Katowice Climate Texts” or the “Katowice Package,” is meant to prevent global temperatures from rising 1.5 degrees Celsius above “pre-industrial” levels. More than a few observers, though, recalled the famous story of King Canute. According to legend, in an effort to prove that his power was limited and that God was supreme, Canute placed his throne at the sea shore and commanded the tide to stop rising. Obviously, it continued to rise. “Let all men know how empty and worthless is the power of kings, for there is none worthy of the name, but He whom heaven, earth, and sea obey by eternal laws,” Canute was recorded as saying.

Despite the total failure of every UN climate model to accurately predict temperature changes as the Earth’s CO2 levels have increased (they all predicted much warmer temperatures than we’ve had), there was no  humility on display among the self-styled climate dignitaries and excellencies assembled in Poland. In their ludicrous quest to control weather and global temperatures by raising gas prices and restricting choices, no pronouncement was too absurd. Indeed, the official narrative broadcast endlessly throughout the summit was that humanity only has 12 years left to do what the UN says, or the Earth will be destroyed due to the carbon-emission sins of evil humans — and particularly evil Western humans, since Chinese and Indian emissions are apparently less evil than emissions from Americans or Germans.

What Does It Do?

Often described as a “rule book,” the agreement is “designed to operationalize the climate change regime contained in the Paris Agreement,” the UN said. The Paris Agreement was concocted by former President Barack Obama and other globalist leaders at the 2015 UN climate summit in the French capital. This pseudo-treaty, which was never ratified by the U.S. Senate and which President Trump announced the U.S. government would withdraw from, has enormous goals — namely, fundamentally transforming the planet.

Alex Newman: Government to Re-Educate Kids of “Right-Wing” Parents

Government to Re-Educate Kids of “Right-Wing” Parents  “In other words, treating a daughter as a daughter and a son as a son is now considered harmful to children by the extremist regime ruling Germany.”

by Alex Newman

In what was seen by many observers as a throwback to evil ideas from Germany’s National Socialist (Nazi) days, German authorities helped publish a pamphlet advocating the re-education of children whose parents disagree with the regime’s official (and totally insane) ideology. Among the ideas that are verboten: opposition to “gender theory,” the “sexualization” of children, and mass immigration. So-called education must help combat “right-wing populism,” the document added.

Critics blasted the document’s instructions for using the language of children to detect thought crimes by parents. According to the brochure, parts of which were translated into English for an article by LifeSiteNews.com, parents with attitudes the state deems unacceptable can be sniffed out. In particular, they can be detected through the use of “seemingly harmless words which stem, however, from the jargon of the New (or Old) Right and which imply a deeply misanthropic attitude.”

The Orwellian propaganda also gives examples of warning signs that children may come from a “racist” or “right-wing” family. One involves a brother and sister who seem “especially obedient” and have no “so-called disciplinary problems.” The siblings in question also display “traditional gender roles,” with the sister wearing “dresses and braids” and learning “needlework” at home while the boy “is physically being strongly challenged and drilled.”

Another example involves a mother coming to school to complain that her son was dressed up as a girl and had his finger nails painted at school the previous day. The mother “declares that this has a bad influence upon her child; children should not be further confused; boys are boys, girls are girls.” Such attitudes are not allowed in today’s totalitarian Germany, it seems.

According to the document, “gender-stereotype parenting styles limit the manifold possibilities of children and [adversely] affect their development.” In other words, treating a daughter as a daughter and a son as a son is now considered harmful to children by the extremist regime ruling Germany. Another issue raised in the document is when parents complain about the “premature sexualization” of their children.

To deal with such situations, the document calls on the school brainwash the children with “diversity” propaganda and “children’s rights” ideology, holding that children have a right to be whatever gender they please. The teachers are also expected to “explain that gender diversity and tolerance are welcomed at the pre-school” and that children must be encouraged to “experiment with themselves.” The teachers are also supposed indoctrinate them with far-left political views.

The controversial brochure, which was funded by the German Ministry of Family Affairs and published by a tax-funded foundation, includes a lengthy forward by Family Affairs Minster Dr. Franziska Giffey. The dangerous left-wing extremist claims that children must be trained in a “democratic manner” and that education must be steered toward “children’s rights,” which is code from trampling on parental rights. Giffey also lashes out at the “significant increase of right-wing populist movements,” suggesting the regime’s indoctrination centers will be used shift the political system in a more totalitarian direction.

The tax-funded “foundation” that published the tax-funded brochure, known as the Amadeu Antonio Foundation, is led by a confessed spy for the barbaric Stasi, the infamous “intelligence” agency of the murderous communist regime that enslaved and terrorized East Germany. And so, more than a few critics highlighted the resemblance and parallels between the totalitarian ideology in the brochure and the the totalitarian ideology of the communist and National Socialist regimes in Germany.

Unfortunately, the disgusting hatred of families, faith, and freedom exhibited in the brochure is simply a local manifestation of a global movement — a totalitarian movement that has thoroughly infiltrated American education, too. But unlike in Germany, where Adolf Hitler’s ban on home education remains in place, American parents still have options. Now would be the time to exercise those options, before it is too late.
