Alex Newman: Southern Baptists: Abolish Abortion Now, Nullify Roe vs. Wade 4 (1)

by Alex Newman

Abortion is murder and represents a “crime against humanity,” so it must be immediately re-criminalized and abolished without any exceptions, according to a resolution approved earlier this month by the powerful Southern Baptist Convention (SBC).

The new measure, which rejected the “incremental approach” to stopping the slaughter of the unborn favored by many “pro-life” activists, also called on Christians and governments to repent for their complicity in the ongoing atrocities.

The move even calls for state nullification if needed. And it has the potential to supercharge the movement to stop the massacre of pre-born children taking place in America.

The SBC has been issuing tepid resolutions against abortion since before the U.S. Supreme Court even authored its opinion in Roe v. Wade. That decision purporting to overturn all state laws banning the murder of unborn babies has facilitated the slaughter of some 60 million innocent human beings so far.

But the latest measure demanding “the immediate abolition of abortion without exception or compromise” by the SBC represents the most strident language yet from America’s largest Protestant Christian denomination. The SBC includes about 50,000 churches with some 15 million members.

Despite the lack of attention from the establishment press, the resolution is already sending shock-waves through the church. Many analysts believe it represents a turning point in the battle to stop abortion.

“The bloody stain that comes from the more than sixty million babies who have been legally put to death belongs in part to Southern Baptists for their ethical failures to speak clearly, prophetically and consistently on the sanctity of the life of preborn humans,” explained Pastor Tom Ascol of Founders Ministry, one of the key forces behind the measure, in a post about it on his website.

“It is time for Southern Baptists to repent of their complicity in searing the conscience of a nation that has yet to cease the slaughter of unborn innocents,” he added.

According to numerous scripture verses cited in the resolution, all human beings are “created in God’s image” from the moment of fertilization. That means, as God’s image-bearers, each baby in the womb is equal in value to God, regardless of the baby’s age, ethnicity, size, gender, and so on.

As such, murdering any preborn baby “is a sin, violating both the natural law of retributive justice as set forth in the Noahic covenant, as well as the sixth commandment forbidding murder.” It is also an “assault on God’s image” and an effort to “usurp God’s sovereignty as Creator,” the resolution declares.

Again citing the Bible, the resolution goes on to argue that all human life is a “sacred gift,” and that God’s law is supreme over human life and human law. Pointing to Proverbs 24:11-12 commanding Christians to “rescue those who are being taken away to death,” as well as the fact that God will hold Christians responsible for failing to do something, the Southern Baptists said there is no choice but to get involved.

“God establishes all governing authorities as His avenging servants to carry out His wrath on the evildoer,” the resolution continues, noting that government authorities have an obligation to judge justly when punishing evil.

The document, approved on June 16 in Nashville at the SBC’s annual meeting, also brought in the U.S. Constitution. “In 1973, the Supreme Court of the United States rendered an iniquitous decision on Roe v. Wade, and in doing so deprived the innocent of their rights, and usurped God, who sovereignly ordained their authority,” the SBC said.

In its decision, “the Supreme Court of the United States subverted the U.S. Constitution namely, the Preamble, as well as the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments without any legal authority (Article 6, Clause 2 ‘Supremacy Clause’),” the resolution continued, pointing to the fact that only constitutional laws are permissible and supreme over state laws.

In other words, government authorities at all levels have a duty under the laws of God and under the U.S. Constitution to protect unborn babies. That means, if necessary, state and local governments have a duty to intervene, even if they have to ignore and nullify illegitimate federal usurpations such as Roe v. Wade.

Indeed, governing authorities have not just a constitutional obligation to act, but “a duty before God” to uphold justice by protecting the unborn, regardless of what the high court says in its opinions.

In what will sound bizarre to some seeking to protect unborn babies, the measure goes on to criticize the pro-life movement and its efforts.

“Over the past 48 years with 60+ million abortions, traditional Pro-life laws, though well intended, have not established equal protection and justice for the preborn, but on the contrary, appallingly have established incremental, regulatory guidelines for when, where, why, and how to obtain legal abortion of innocent preborn children, thereby legally sanctioning abortion,” the measure states, calling for a new approach often dubbed “abolition” by proponents.

By approving the measure, the SBC resolved to “state unequivocally that abortion is murder.”

They also agreed to “reject any position that allows for any exceptions to the legal protection of our preborn neighbors, compromises God’s holy standard of justice, or promotes any God-hating partiality.”

Indeed, SBC messengers go on to repent of any complicity they may have had in tolerating exceptions that legitimize or regulate the murder of the unborn.

As part of the resolution, the SBC’s messengers, who represent SBC churches nationwide, vowed not to embrace any incremental approach to saving babies. Rather, abortion must be looked upon as murder, always, starting now, and appropriately punished by government.

“As Southern Baptists we will engage, with God’s help, in establishing equal justice and protection for the preborn according to the authority of God’s Word as well as local and federal law,” the measure declared, calling on pastors and leaders to get involved in abolishing abortion immediately.

“Because abolishing abortion is a Great Commission issue, we must call upon governing authorities at all levels to repent and ‘obey everything that [Christ] has commanded,’ exhorting them to bear fruit in keeping with repentance by faithfully executing their responsibilities as God’s servants of justice, and working with all urgency to enact legislation using the full weight of their office to interpose on behalf of the preborn, abolishing abortion immediately, without exception or compromise,” the resolution concluded.

The language in the historic SBC resolution goes beyond what other Protestant denominations and even the Catholic Church have taught in America. Indeed, it marks a turning point in the battle against abortion when it comes to tactics and rhetoric.

After almost 50 years of the “pro-life” movement accomplishing little as babies continued to be butchered, advocates of “abolition” have argued that new strategies and a biblical approach to the issue must be used.

One key element of the emerging abolition movement relies on Reformation-era biblical theological thinking. Especially relevant is the “Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates,” which calls on “lesser magistrates” — governors and sheriffs in America, for example — to interpose on behalf of their constituents to protect them from evil decrees of higher magistrates. For instance, a state legislature and governor could interpose on behalf of unborn babies in the state by arresting and prosecuting those involved in murdering babies.

Also key in America are constitutional arguments. Under the U.S. Constitution, the federal government has limited powers — something the 10th Amendment makes clear when it expressly reserves all powers not delegated to the feds for the states and the people. As such, Founding Fathers including James Madison and Thomas Jefferson argued that states have a duty to nullify unconstitutional actions by the federal government.

Dozens of states have already nullified federal statutes and international treaties purporting to prohibit marijuana. Nullification of the Supreme Court opinion pretending to overturn state murder laws would be just as effective.

The state of Oklahoma has been at the forefront of the effort to nullify Roe v. Wade. Numerous abolition bills have been introduced, though none have been signed into law yet.

However, with the new SBC resolution on abolishing abortion, the tide may finally be turning, first in the Southern United States, and eventually nationwide.

Alex Newman: Declaring War on U.S. Energy and the U.S. 4 (1)

by Alex Newman

As President Biden works to handicap both American energy production and usage, in the name of fighting global warming, he is destroying jobs, prosperity, and freedom.

On January 20, 2021, the booming town of Midland, South Dakota, became practically a “ghost town” in an instant. In the morning, every single room at the rustic Stroppel Hotel was occupied by highly paid workers toiling away on the Keystone XL pipeline and associated operations. By evening, there was nobody left. “Our whole world turned upside down with the stroke of a pen,” explained Laurie Cox, who bought the hotel six months ago with her husband, Wally, with the understanding that the pipeline would be bringing in large numbers of guests and patrons for the foreseeable future.

Now, thanks to Joe Biden’s executive decree canceling the pipeline, the Cox family’s future is uncertain at best. “Our real money was in renting the rooms — that’s where the pipeliners came in and really helped sustain us,” Cox told The New American magazine in a phone interview from her hotel. “We had a significant amount of people in the hotel, working on the pipeline and supporting them. Now, that’s done. We’re a small community, we don’t have a lot of opportunity. This was our once-in-a-lifetime chance and now it’s gone.”

Weeks into the devastation, the situation is already a tragedy. “I’ll be honest, we’re going to struggle month to month to pay the bills, whereas before we had plenty of money coming in to re-invest and improve the hotel and even hire people,” Cox said, reading off a list of other people in the region whose lives were similarly turned upside down. “I don’t even take a wage — everything we’ve got now we’re putting back into this hotel. I had hired somebody to help us run the place, but there is just no more money to have an employee anymore.”

There is still hope thanks to the hotel’s mineral bath. “Being a small hotel in the middle of nowhere, we do have our mineral waters that bring people in, even though right now we’re not bringing in enough to keep going,” she said. “We had been planning on having the workers for at least quite a long time. And our main money would have come when the main line kicked in. But now we’re going to have to try to pull in more people for going into our mineral waters — which are really special, by the way, healing.”

Still, Cox, sounding devastated but displaying traditional American spirit and perseverance, vowed not to give up. “This hotel is part of our little community, and when we bought it in September, we became part of this community. The hotel is a resource that this town has had since 1939, for generations, and we’re going to keep trying to make it work,” Cox continued. “We’re going to do everything we can to preserve this resource that God has given us.” But it will be hard, she added.

Keystone XL & National Pain

Of course, the Cox family is just the tip of the iceberg of destruction as Biden’s unconstitutional executive orders and his war on U.S. energy destroy thousands of lives and wreak havoc on countless families nationwide. According to data from the companies involved in just this one project, the Keystone XL pipeline was supposed to directly create almost 11,000 jobs — most of them “union” jobs, too, supposedly Biden’s favorite type of jobs.

Biden Bringing Economic Harm

Many of the unions that backed Biden are now expressing outrage. “The Biden administration’s decision to cancel the Keystone XL pipeline permit on day one of his presidency is both insulting and disappointing to the thousands of hard-working LIUNA members who will lose good-paying, middle class family-supporting jobs,” said the Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA), which previously endorsed Biden’s candidacy. “By blocking this 100 percent union project, and pandering to environmental extremists, a thousand union jobs will immediately vanish and 10,000 additional jobs will be foregone.” 

But it gets worse. With a few strokes of Biden’s pen on a flurry of executive decrees, he managed to directly torpedo over 50,000 high-paying jobs on just his first day in office, according to estimates based on government figures. Some estimates suggest the real number may be as high as 70,000. Countless more will be lost in the years ahead as energy prices soar and firms seek out greener pastures to create wealth and manufacture products in places such as China.

While the Kremlin and dictators across the Middle East and beyond were thrilled with the killing of the Keystone XL pipeline, even America’s liberal friends and allies to the north were furious. Alberta Premier Jason Kenney, for instance, blasted Biden’s executive order as a “gut punch to the Alberta and Canadian economies” and “an insult.” Despite being a fellow “green” fanatic, the far-left prime minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, expressed “disappointment” in Biden’s move.

American lawmakers were outraged, too. “President Biden’s executive order will rob both American and Canadian workers of good-paying jobs,” said Senator John Barrasso (Wy.), who is the top Republican on the Energy and Natural Resources Committee. “President Biden’s actions will not end our need for oil from our strongest ally, Canada. Instead, it will cost jobs, result in more shipments of oil by rail and make America even more vulnerable to OPEC and foreign adversaries, like Russia.”

Fact checkers promptly sprang into action to silence critics of Biden’s killing of the pipeline. Their primary line of attack was the notion that, while it was true that Biden was destroying tens of thousands of high-paying jobs, he planned to create even more jobs in “green” energy at some point in the future. Basically, all those laid-off oil and gas workers could simply learn how to make solar panels, batteries, and those giant wind turbines strewn across large swaths of Texas and the American plains.

In other words, oil workers are being asked to give up high-paying jobs in exchange for jobs that usually pay less, in technical fields that can’t absorb the numbers of workers being shed by the oil patch, and that usually require retraining and that will mainly end after the big wind and solar projects are installed. Perhaps Biden could “create jobs” by borrowing money from China to pay people to smash big rocks into little rocks, too. At least it would not be as destructive.

Then mid-February’s bone-chilling cold hit. The very same wind turbines that were supposed to save humanity from alleged man-made global warming ended up freezing amid devastatingly cold temperatures, contributing to plunging millions into electrical blackouts as temperatures dropped below zero. (It’s noteworthy that there is a record of such cold snaps occurring in Texas since the 1890s.) The irony was not lost on the people of Texas — America’s largest energy producer — as some five million victims of government “green energy” schemes wondered if they might freeze to death before power returned. A number of people died, including an 11-year-old boy.

Other Assaults on U.S. Energy & Jobs

The war on American energy — and America itself — goes far beyond just the Keystone XL pipeline. Under President Trump, in 2019, America became “energy independent” for the first time in more than six decades. With his pen and phone, however, following in the footsteps of Barack Obama before him, Biden  reversed much of that progress in just a matter of weeks. Biden’s actions will be a boon to Middle Eastern tyrants, Russia, Venezuela, and other regimes awash in oil. But the costs will be devastating to America, and to some of its most vulnerable communities.

It is not just energy and transportation that depend on “fossil fuels” and hydrocarbons. According to the U.S. Department of Energy’s own website, oil and natural gas are needed in the manufacturing of over 6,000 everyday products and high-tech devices. These include tires, heart valves, toothbrushes, helmets, laptops, phones, wind-turbine blades, hearing aids, life jackets, and countless other essential goods without which modern life would come to a screeching halt. Producing these goods in the United States under the sort of regime envisioned by Biden would become difficult, if not impossible.

One of Biden’s major changes was an indefinite freeze on drilling and exploration for energy on federal lands. In just the state of New Mexico — one of the nation’s poorest states — Biden’s executive order halting oil and gas leases and drilling on federal lands is set to cost over 60,000 jobs, representing almost seven percent of the state’s entire workforce. New Mexico, a Democratic state, is also expected to lose more than $1 billion in tax revenue in the first year, an economic impact study by the American Petroleum Institute (API) suggests. Because half of New Mexico’s energy extraction happens on federal lands, and the feds own more than a third of the state’s land, that state will be particularly hard hit.

Other states set to be devastated by Biden’s decrees include Wyoming, North Dakota, Colorado, Oklahoma, and more. In Louisiana, API data suggest, the state’s Gulf Coast region could lose 50,000 jobs and almost $100 million in tax revenue just by next year as a result of Biden’s imperial decrees against American energy production. It could get worse, too, as the offshore drilling industry in Louisiana supports hundreds of thousands of jobs and contributes almost $7 billion to the state’s tax revenues each year.

“It’s devastatingly simple,” explained Representative Yvette Herrell (R-N.M.) and House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) in an op-ed for Fox News. “When Washington radicals ban drilling on federal lands, Americans lose their jobs, investment flows overseas, and communities across America lose a primary source of revenue for schools, health care, and conservation efforts…. Our friends and neighbors rely upon these jobs to pay rent, put food on the table, and keep the lights on.”

“The Biden administration is attacking their livelihoods and jeopardizing America’s energy security,” the two lawmakers continued, adding that America is a global leader in producing and using energy in a clean, environmentally responsible manner while the regimes that will benefit do not adhere to proper environmental standards. “President Biden either doesn’t understand the damage he is doing to our communities or he doesn’t care.”

Gunning Americans down: Using executive orders, Biden has destroyed untold numbers of high-paying jobs producing energy domestically and made America more dependent on hostile foreigners. Perhaps even more significant than the economic damage inflicted on Americans is the national-security threat these decrees pose. “When the United States became the single largest oil and gas producer in the world, we were protected from market manipulation by OPEC and rogue actors,” the representatives said. “By undermining our energy dominance, Biden once again puts us at the mercy of foreign regimes, many of whom use those new-found billions of dollars against America and our allies.”

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey was fuming over what he described as Biden’s “destructive” policies. “What we’re seeing in the first week of the Biden administration is that the president is really taking a wrecking ball to many of the states that have oil, gas, coal, manufacturing jobs — that’s gonna have a real detrimental impact, especially as the American economy is coming out of COVID-19, a pandemic,” he declared, noting that Biden was going even further than Obama in his “green” scheming. “I think he’s really kicking the American people when they’re down economically and it’s not a message of unity that he’s been talking about.”

Producers, too, are sounding the alarm, even as apologists try to soothe concerns. Speaking of the drilling “moratorium,” Dan Naatz with the Independent Petroleum Association of America suggested this was likely to be significant and long-term. “Do not be fooled, this is a ban,” he explained. “The Biden administration’s plan to obliterate the jobs of American oil and gas explorers and producers has been on clear display.” Experts such as investment legend Felix Zulauf are predicting almost a doubling in the price of oil during Biden’s first term due to the anti-energy policies being pursued.

Green Energy Fraud

The notion that America can simply replace all of its lost energy from hydrocarbons with windmills and solar panels is plainly preposterous. Perhaps nobody explained it more beautifully and succinctly than Mark Mills, senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, in a powerful five-minute video for PragerU exposing the “wind and solar” racket being used to dupe Americans into destroying their energy production.

Consider, among the countless problems, that the technology is simply not capable of supplying the power needed for an advanced civilization. After decades of governments showering billions of dollars in subsidies on their cronies behind the “green” wind and solar interests — think the scandal-plagued, Obama-backed solar panel company Solyndra, for instance, which flushed half-a-billion tax dollars down the drain when it declared bankruptcy — wind and solar power accounts for less than three percent of the world’s energy supply.

Aside from the economic absurdity of it all, the environmental devastation that would result from more widespread use of wind, solar, and battery power is hard to fathom. “Like all machines, they are built from non-renewable materials,” explained Mills. For instance, producing just one single electric-car battery requires digging up and processing over 250 tons of earth. Producing one wind farm, meanwhile, requires 30,000 tons of iron ore and 50,000 tons of concrete — not to mention nearly 1,000 tons of plastic. To get the same amount of power from solar would take 150 percent more resources.

In short, to continue pursuing the tax-funded solar and wind fantasies of central planners will require digging up millions of acres of pristine areas. All of that mining will consume an unfathomable amount of hydrocarbon energy, too, as will the industrial processes needed to refine the materials. And if that “green” power is stored in batteries, it will cost orders of magnitude more than traditional sources of electricity.

Those enormous numbers do not even factor in the massive mining operations that would be needed to get the rare-earth metals necessary to produce the batteries, wind turbines, and solar panels. For a number of reasons, almost none of that mining is taking place in America now, and it will not in the future either — especially as the Biden administration and the federal government frantically work to destroy U.S. mining operations. Instead, much of the mining will take place in China and Russia and other hostile nations. Ironically, a great deal of it is being mined by children in some of the areas environmentalists say they most want to protect — in Central Africa and the Amazon region of South America.

As Mills also points out, the life of wind and solar equipment is typically half the lifespan of conventional energy machines such as gas turbines. The International Renewable Energy Agency estimates that by 2050, solar-panel waste in need of disposal will be double the tonnage of the plastic waste produced today. And that does not include worn-out batteries or wind turbines. Adding insult to injury, storing one barrel of oil costs about 50 cents, while storing the equivalent amount of energy generated by wind turbines in batteries will take $200 of batteries, Mills explained.

In short, the true cost of all this “green” energy scheming — both economic and environmental — is astronomical.

Green New Deal & Sustainable Development

But there is a method to the madness. Indeed, it is all part of a broader and more destructive plan. Even before winning the dubious 2020 election, which was  marred by countless credible allegations of voter fraud, Biden was quietly but firmly peddling the Green New Deal. “Biden believes the Green New Deal is a crucial framework for meeting the climate challenges we face,” explained the Biden-Harris campaign website outlining a “plan for a clean energy revolution and environmental justice.”

On January 27, just one week into his presidency, following dozens of executive decrees, Biden held a press conference at the White House to unveil what sounded suspiciously like the Green New Deal floated by extremists and socialists in Congress in recent years. In his Executive Order on Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad, signed amid the confab, Biden even called for “conserving 30 percent of our lands and waters by 2030.” In other words, almost one-third of all the land and water in America would be made virtually off-limits to man. Also in the order was a new “Civilian Climate Corps.”

Adding insult to injury, he promised to “create jobs” by finishing off the energy-extraction infrastructure. “We’re also going to create more than a quarter million jobs to do things like plug the millions of abandoned oil and gas wells that pose an ongoing threat to the health and safety of our communities,” he said before parroting the UN-created slogan about “building our economy back better,” a derivative of the UN slogan “Build Back Better” that Biden ripped off for his campaign. “It’s a whole-of-government approach to put climate change at the center of our domestic, national security, and foreign policy.”

The public first got a taste of the “Green New Deal” agenda in 2019, when H.R. 109 was introduced in Congress by a coalition of 67 radical communist and socialist Democrats led by U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.). Among other absurdities, the effort would seek to eliminate air travel, the eating of steaks, the use of hydrocarbons, and more. It would aim to completely end all emissions of CO— an essential gas exhaled by every living person and required by plants — over the coming decade. An FAQ released with the bill even touted “paying people who are unwilling to work.” Seriously.

But even serious environmentalists ridiculed the Green New Deal. Calling it a “recipe for mass suicide” and the “most ridiculous scenario I ever heard,” in an interview with The New American, Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore blasted the “deal” as “completely preposterous.” He warned that if the scheme were actually implemented, people could be forced to turn to cannibalism to avoid starvation — and they still would not survive. All the trees on Earth would be chopped down, too, as people scrambled for energy to cook and warm their families with, he said.

That horrifying scenario would seem to fit quite nicely with the plans of the Club of Rome, an establishment powerhouse bringing together a diverse group of totalitarian characters from around the world, ranging from climate guru Al Gore to Bill Gates, George Soros, and Bill Clinton, to the late New World Order kingpin David Rockefeller and former Soviet dictator Mikhail Gorbachev. In its 1991 report, this group of powerful billionaires and policymakers indicated that with the Cold War officially in the rear-view mirror, a new target was needed to justify globalism and Big Government.

“The common enemy of humanity is man,” the club said in its report, The First Global Revolution. “In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself.” In short, you and your family are the enemy — and your ability to sustain yourself, especially the energy needed to sustain life and civilization, is now officially in the cross hairs.

War on the United States, and Fighting Back

The war on America’s energy is actually a war on America itself, and the American people, by enemies foreign and domestic. As to the involvement of foreign interests, while most critics have seen the benefits to the Kremlin and other regimes as an unintended consequence, there is actually more to the story. As The New American magazine has been reporting for years, members of Congress discovered that Russian-government energy interests were funding U.S. “green” groups through a shell corporation in Bermuda called Klein Ltd. It was sending money to the Sea Change Foundation. From there, the money was distributed to a broad network of extremist “environmental” organizations such as the Sierra Club, the League of Conservation Voters, and the Climate Action Network that are all seeking to destroy America’s energy industry.

Also, not only were Communist China’s agents deeply involved in promoting the Obama administration’s “green” policies, but China is a major beneficiary of Biden’s policies (see article on page 17). As American companies become uncompetitive due to surging energy prices, and Communist China continues building coal-fired power plants, America’s productive capacity and its jobs will be quickly shipped off to China. And all those “green energy” jobs and technologies? They will be in Beijing’s interest, too.

“What they’re talking about is exchanging [our former] dependence on the Middle East and OPEC, which was at one point close to 50% of our energy, for almost total dependence or twice as much dependency on China,” American Energy Alliance Senior Vice President Dan Kish explained regarding the expected hard shift into wind and solar power, pointing to Communist China’s dominance in the “green” energy sector. “I’ve got friends who are geologists who are saying, ‘Why are we doing this? This is crazy.’”

There are also powerful domestic forces hostile to American interests who are pushing for — and profiting from — the misery they are imposing on America. In 2014, the tip of the iceberg surfaced when the U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee dropped its bombshell report headlined “The Chain of Environmental Command: How a Club of Billionaires and Their Foundations Control the Environmental Movement and Obama’s EPA.”

This shadowy network identified as the “Billionaires Club” was exposed showering huge amounts of funds on the environmentalist “green movement.” And with all that money, the billionaires had come to dominate policy making, fleece taxpayers, and more — often in violation of federal laws. Numerous billionaires involved in the Club of Rome, such as the late David Rockefeller and Bill Gates, were key players.

This war on energy inspired by hostile foreign powers and anti-American billionaires in bed with Beijing has known consequences — and those responsible have openly admitted it. As Obama put it in 2008, under his plan, “electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.” And when power prices skyrocket, businesses will rocket out of the United States and into other countries — China, for example. In countries where power prices are not skyrocketing and where companies need not even worry about pollution, there’s the extra benefit of slave labor. Biden and his handlers are not fools. Like Obama, they fully understand the consequences of their actions. And that is the point.

But from the flyover country and state capitols to the halls of Congress, opposition is growing quickly. And effective ways to resist are already being explored. Consider the example set by Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt. Noting that Biden’s decrees targeting energy are “in contravention of Article II Section 2 and the 10th Amendment of the United States Constitution,” in addition to the threat they pose to his state, the Republican governor ordered state agencies to resist.

Specifically, Stitt directed that state officials “utilize all civil methods and lawful powers to protect [Oklahoma’s] 10th Amendment powers and challenge any actions by the federal government that would seek to diminish or destroy Oklahoma’s ability to encourage job growth and the responsible development of our natural resources within the energy industry.” Other governors may follow suit.

Every state in the union can use the power of nullification. For the last four years, Democrats used it unconstitutionally to block immigration laws and constitutional Trump policies. By contrast, Republicans at the state and local level can and should use it, constitutionally, to stop federal overreach into the energy sector, where the government has no constitutional authority.

America’s Founding Fathers viewed nullification as “the rightful remedy” to lawless usurpation of power by the feds. When there’s a case such as Biden’s, wherein an apparently almost-senile puppet is carrying out the instructions of power-mad billionaires and hostile foreign powers to reduce the United States to poverty and despotic rule, it is not just the right of the states and the people under the Constitution to resist — it is their duty.

Alex Newman: “Great Reset” Transhumanism-Merging Man & Machine 4.5 (2)

by Alex Newman

Under the new world order envisioned by the proponents of the United Nations-backed “Great Reset,” humans will be merged with machines and technology. Literally. Perhaps most incredibly, the Deep State globalists behind the efforts are coming out of the closet. These days, they are openly and literally proclaiming their intention to abolish private ownership of property and even fuse microchips into people’s brains that will be able to read and manipulate individuals’ thoughts.

Just last year, the schemes peddled under the “Great Reset” banner would have been dismissed as “crazy conspiracy theories.” Today, top globalists such as World Economic Forum boss Klaus Schwab, UN chief (and socialist leader) Antonio Guterres, IMF leader Kristalina Georgieva, and others are trumpeting their agenda from the rooftops. World leaders such as far-left Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau are doing it too, despite frantic efforts by the fake media to downplay the significance.

As The New American reported this summer, shortly after the “Great Reset” agenda was unveiled, there are many elements to the plot. Everything must change, from education and business to the global economy and governance, Great Reset advocates declared during the summit announcing the scheme. However, one area that has not received nearly as much attention is the plan to fuse human beings with technology under the guise of “improving” mankind.

WEF chief Schwab, the chief marketer of the Great Reset who recently released a book with that title, has proclaimed that a key element of the “reset” will be the so-called “Fourth Industrial Revolution.” And in very public statements, he has explained what this means: merging man with machines. “What the fourth industrial revolution will lead to is a fusion of our physical, digital and biological identity,” Schwab explained in a speech to the Chicago Council on Global Affairs.

Schwab, whose accent and demeanor make him appear to be almost a caricature of some evil cartoon villain, even wrote a book on the subject in 2016 entitled Shaping the Future of The Fourth Industrial Revolution. In it, the globalist schemer explains how looming technological changes will allow governments to “intrude into the hitherto private space of our minds, reading our thoughts and influencing our behavior.”

“Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies will not stop at becoming part of the physical world around us — they will become part of us,” continued Schwab. “Indeed, some of us already feel that our smartphones have become an extension of ourselves. Today’s external devices — from wearable computers to virtual reality headsets — will almost certainly become implantable in our bodies and brains.”

Among those technologies are “active implantable microchips that break the skin barrier of our bodies,” Schwab explained. These “implantable devices,” Schwab continued, “will likely also help to communicate thoughts normally expressed verbally through a ‘built-in’ smartphone, and potentially unexpressed thoughts or moods by reading brain waves and other signals.”

Even more creepy, perhaps, is that Schwab suggested these technologies would be used by governments to determine who may travel and even for “pre-crime” purposes. “As capabilities in this area improve, the temptation for law enforcement agencies and courts to use techniques to determine the likelihood of criminal activity, assess guilt or even possibly retrieve memories directly from people’s brains will increase,” he explained, adding that authorities might require “a detailed brain scan to assess an individual’s security risk.”

In a post on the WEF website by Danish Parliamentarian Ida Auken, the direction and goals of all this transhumanism become more clear. “Welcome to the year 2030,” Auken writes. “I don’t own anything,” including a home, and “I have no real privacy. No where I can go and not be registered. I know that, somewhere, everything I do, think and dream of is recorded.” But her biggest concern is those who refuse to participate.

“My biggest concern is all the people who do not live in our city,” Auken explains, noting that some stubborn individuals refused to merge with machines. “Those we lost on the way. Those who decided that it became too much, all this technology. Those who felt obsolete and useless when robots and AI took over big parts of our jobs. Those who got upset with the political system and turned against it.”

The push toward transhumanism and merging with computers is becoming especially obvious in the “education” system amid the hysteria surrounding COVID. From moving everything online and sidelining teachers to bringing in Artificial Intelligence and algorithms, the technology is getting downright creepy. Huge totalitarian firms such as Google, which brazenly discriminates against Christians and conservatives, are key players as they gather enormous amounts of sensitive data on children and blatantly manipulate the public.

The WEF, which is leading the push with help from the UN and the IMF, is a powerhouse. Every year, it brings together billionaires and even mass-murdering dictators from around the world to promote globalism and technocracy under the guise of “helping” humanity. Naturally, all of the major tech companies — Facebook, Alphabet, Microsoft, and so on — are intimately involved. Fringe billionaire totalitarians such as George Soros are key players, too.

The push for the “Great Reset” is hardly the first time the elites have peddled the trans-humanist agenda. At the 2018 “World Government Summit” in the United Arab Emirates, top globalists and “world leaders” gathered to push, among other key themes, the normalization and glorification of “cyborgs.” Indeed, the confab, which brings together top leaders of government and business, offered a prominent role to a self-proclaimed “cyborg” named Neil Harbisson, who argued that governments must facilitate the transition to at least some people becoming “part-technology, part-human.”

“I have an antenna that is implanted inside my head, which allows me to extend my perception of reality beyond the visual spectrum,” said Harbisson, co-founder of the Cyborg Society and the Transpecies Society which fight for people who “identify” as non-human. “I can sense infrared and ultraviolet, and I also have an internet connection in my head that allows me to receive colors from other parts of the world, or connect to satellites so I can send colors from space.”

The year before that, globalists at the World Government Summit gathered under a replica of the “Arch of Baal,” a monument to the demon god of the Canaanites frequently referred to in the Bible. More than a few commentators saw it as an ominous sign.

Aside from the fusion with machines and technology, globalist elites are also pushing for genetic modification of everything — including humans. In fact, Microsoft tycoon Bill Gates has openly pushed for such schemes. In 2018, he touted gene-editing technology in Foreign Affairs, the mouthpiece of the globalist Deep State organ known as the Council on Foreign Relations. More recently, he has celebrated vaccines that literally alter the genetic code of those receiving them.

The transhumanist movement has been on the fringes, under the radar, for decades. In the late 1990s, Swedish economist Nick Bostrom of Oxford and British “philosopher” David Pearce founded the World Transhumanist Association. And more recently, in his book Homo Deus, Israeli author and historian Yuval Noah Harari has also been peddling the idea that mankind is on the verge of evolving to god-like status through technology. Ultimately, humans would be re-designed using genetic modification and technological “upgrades.”

“It is very likely, within a century or two, Homo sapiens, as we have known it for thousands of years, will disappear,” Harari said at the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs recently. “We will use technology to upgrade ourselves — or at least some of us — into something different; something which is far more different from us than we are different from Neanderthals.” The establishment media has been breathlessly parroting his propaganda.

Of course, the advancement of transhumanism requires a destruction of Christian moral principles and a negation of the fundamental truths about humanity and reality that revealed in the Bible, analysts have observed. Indeed, many of the leading proponents of transhumanism believe their route to “eternal life” involves uploading their consciousness to a computer and merging with technology.

One of the prominent experts speaking out against it all is Dr. Miklos Lukacs de Pereny, a professor of science and technology policy at Peru’s Universidad San Martin. “The Fourth Industrial Revolution is literally, as they say, a transformative revolution, not just in terms of the tools that you will use to modify your environment, but for the first time in human history to modify human beings themselves,” he told LifeSiteNews, adding that he believed the COVID-19 hysteria was being engineered to enable the Great Reset transformation.

Even though world leaders are openly talking about it all, in response to a public backlash, far-left fake-media outlets such as the New York Times and the BBC are currently engaged in frantic “damage control.” Incredibly, they are even falsely claiming the Great Reset is a “baseless conspiracy theory.” Apparently New York Times writer Davey Alba is not familiar with the definition of the word conspiracy. He also reported on his efforts to pester Big Tech social-media firms about censoring people’s comments about it.

If the comments under its videos on YouTube are any indication, the globalist Great Reset is less popular than cockroaches and head lice. However, that does not mean the Deep State will give up on trying to advance its agenda under the slogan, which fits nicely with the UN and Biden, “Build Back Better” and the schemes outlined in UN Agenda 2030. It is basically the same old “New World Order” agenda, complete with the elimination of private property, privacy, self-government, and nation-states, now fused with transhumanism. Those who value truth, liberty, and humanity must resist.

Alex Newman: Fresh Lawsuits Give Proof of Massive Vote-machine Fraud 4 (1)

by Alex Newman

Voting machines and software used across dozens of key jurisdictions in the 2020 election were literally designed to rig elections, according to evidence presented in federal lawsuits by powerhouse attorneys Sidney Powell and Lin Wood. Using these compromised systems secured a phony victory for Joe Biden in ways that would have been “impossible” without the widespread fraud, the suits show. Legal experts said the cases exposing the coordinated vote fraud could ensure another four years for Trump in the White House.

In her suit filed in Georgia this week, Powell explained that the ultimate objective of the vote riggers was to “illegally and fraudulently” manipulate the vote count so that Biden could appear to to be the winner. And this fraud was accomplished through various means, including lies, computer rigging, “old-fashioned ballot-stuffing,” and more that were all covered up using computer software programs created and run by foreign and domestic enemies.

Among the many pieces of evidence: a damning affidavit by a whistleblower who helped the late mass-murdering Socialist dictator Hugo Chavez of Venezuela create voting systems that could be rigged to favor a chosen candidate. Indeed, according to the suit, the software by Smartmatic was literally created for the purpose of rigging elections in a manner that would be impossible to prove or detect. And Smartmatic is closely linked to Dominion and other firms that were key in the 2020 election.

“Chavez was most insistent that Smartmatic design the system in a way that the system could change the vote of each voter without being detected,” the whistleblower explained under penalty of perjury. “He wanted the software itself to function in such a manner that if the voter were to place their thumb print or fingerprint on a scanner, then the thumbprint would be tied to a record of the voter’s name and identity as having voted, but that voter would not be tracked to the changed vote.”

The brutal Venezuelan dictator, the affidavit continues, “made it clear that the system would have to be setup to not leave any evidence of the changed vote for a specific voter and that there would be no evidence to show and nothing to contradict that the name or the fingerprint or thumb print was going with a changed vote.” The company in question, Smartmatic, which operates through an international network of companies spread across multiple nations, “agreed to create such a system and produced the software and hardware that accomplished that result for President Chavez.”

As the lawsuit points out, Dominion’s software was literally designed to prevent simple audits that would reveal the “misallocation, redistribution, or deletion of votes.” And under the law, that makes it all invalid. “There is incontrovertible physical evidence that the standards of physical security of the voting machines and the software were breached, and machines were connected to the internet in violation of professional standards and state and federal laws,” the suit continues.

Under the law and previous court rulings, Powell’s lawsuit only needs to show that a “preponderance of evidence” reveals that “there were enough irregular ballots to place in doubt the result.” There appears to be far more than that, despite the establishment media refusing to even mention it.

Another affidavit filed on November 25 in the case by a military intelligence analyst also revealed how vote tabulation software with operations in Serbia and other nations was critical in rigging the numbers sent to Decision HQ. The systems were accessible — and were accessed — from Communist China and other nations, the affidavit explains. Dominion, Edison Research, Scytl, and Smartmatic were all implicated, according to the sworn document.

“In my professional opinion, this affidavit presents unambiguous evidence that Dominion Voter Systems and Edison Research have been accessible and were certainly compromised by rogue actors, such as Iran and China,” the military-intelligence official said. “By using servers and employees connected with rogue actors and hostile foreign influences combined with numerous easily discoverable leaked credentials, these organizations neglectfully allowed foreign adversaries to access data and intentionally provided access to their infrastructure in order to monitor and manipulate elections, including the most recent one in 2020.”

“This represents a complete failure of their duty to provide basic cyber-security,” added the U.S. government official, whose name was redacted for security purposes. “This is not a technological issue, but rather a governance and basic security issue: if it is not corrected, future elections in the United States and beyond will not be secure and citizens will not have confidence in the results.”

The document also mentions former Dominion Vice President of Security Eric Coomer, a fringe anti-Trump extremist with a vicious and very public hatred for the president. According to journalist Joe Oltmann who infiltrated Antifa meetings online, Coomer even promised his fellow Antifa revolutionaries that he had ensured Trump would not be able to win the 2020 election.

Yet another sworn affidavit filed in federal court in a separate but related case by a cybersecurity expert explains how the compromised voting machines were able to rig the election in Michigan. The document, signed under penalty of perjury by Russell Ramsland of Allied Security Operations Group, outlines the findings of an 18-month investigation into Dominion and other Elections Management Systems.

“These systems contain a large number of vulnerabilities to hacking and tampering, both at the front end where Americans cast their votes, and also on the back end where votes are stored, tabulated, and reported,” the affidavit explains, specifically calling out major deficiencies and problems with Dominion. These are some of the reasons states such as Texas refused to use such technologies, according to the document filed in the case Wood v. Raffensperger involving superstar attorney Lin Wood.

Official data and analysis of Michigan’s election “pinpoints a statistical anomaly so far outside of every statistical norm as to be virtually impossible,” the sworn statement explains. “There are a stunning 3,276 precincts where the Presidential Votes Cast compared to the Estimated Voters based on Reported Statistics ranges from 84% to 350%.”

Breaking down the numbers, the document explains that this pattern “strongly suggests the additive algorithm … was activated in the code.” Indeed, the User Guide for the EMS system specifically outlines the function that allows a method of tabulating votes to elect a winner.

“The final red flag is perhaps the greatest,” the affidavit continues. “Something occurred in Michigan that is physically impossible, indicating the results were manipulated on election night within EMS [Election Management System].” That red flag, the affidavit explains, are four spikes totaling almost 400,000 ballots that were allegedly processed in less than 3 hours. “This is physically impossible given the equipment available at the 4 reference locations,” the document points out.

The affidavit, which has been entered into evidence, offers further proof of establishment media dishonesty in falsely claiming that there is no evidence of fraud–later turned to “no evidence of widespread fraud.”

At least some Republican members of Congress are not playing along with the establishment effort to ignore the evidence and pretend like it does not exist. “We know what is documented here is impossible as the Maricopa County Supervisors told us everything is fine and go back to sleep and pay your taxes and wear a mask,” said Congressman Paul Gosar (R-Arz.) in a sarcastic social-media comment shared by President Trump about the affidavit filed in Wood’s suit. “And leftist reporters told us to move on.”

As recently as last year, top Democrats expressed serious concerns about election integrity using voting-machines, specifically calling out Dominion. Just weeks before the 2020 election, a federal judge in Georgia also sounded the alarm about Dominion’s systems and their vulnerability to fraud.

Wood, the attorney leading this particular case, vowed that the truth about election fraud would be exposed, and the perpetrators jailed. Powell has similarly explained that exposing the fraud and prosecuting the perpetrators is essential to the survival of America’s constitutional Republic, and therefore, it will be done.

Courts in Nevada, Pennsylvania, and other states have already issued rulings in the case favorable to the Trump campaign. In Pennsylvania, a judge even ordered a halt to any further certification of results pending a hearing. Some cases have been rejected, but they are being appealed. Eventually, the Trump campaign and other lawyers litigating the fraud in courts expect to land at the U.S. Supreme Court. And as Trump’s attorneys have explained, the president still has multiple paths to another victory.

Alex Newman: Massive Vote Fraud Across U.S. as Trump Decries Attempted Coup 4 (1)

by Alex Newman

Reports, videos, and other evidence of rampant and brazen voter fraud from all across the country — especially in jurisdictions controlled by Democrats — continue pouring in faster than the Big Tech giants can censor it and the fake “fact-checking” industry can dishonestly attempt to discredit it. At this point, virtually anybody who is not depending on the fake-news media as their only source of information can see it clearly. The outcome of the election is at stake. And Trump supporters are already rallying nationwide against the “Big Steal.”

Some analysts have suggested that the Democrats’ vote fraud is so brazen in this election that it was as if the fraudsters did not even care if it was known — or worse, that they wanted conservatives to realize the vote was rigged. In any case, despite blatant censorship by Silicon Valley “Big Tech” totalitarians, President Trump is fighting hard to expose and defeat the fraud. Lawsuits have been filed by the Trump campaign across the nation, especially in crucial swing-states where much of the voter fraud appears to have taken place. And Trump is gearing supporters up for a long fight.

“The Democrats will try to steal this election,” President Trump warned in an e-mail to supporters after facing blatant censorship and other shady antics from far-left social-media services such as Twitter and Facebook. “Just like I predicted from the start, mail-in ballots are leading to CHAOS like you’ve never seen, plain and simple! The Radical Left is going to do whatever it takes to try and rip a TRUMP-PENCE VICTORY away from you.”

Trump, who has already publicly suggested that he won, warned for months that Democrats would try to cheat and steal the election, with help from their Deep State allies in the press and social-media firms. “I warned the Nation this would happen,” he said in the e-mail to supporters vowing to fight on. “I knew the Democrats wouldn’t be able to accept another CRUSHING defeat, so now they’re trying to mess with the results. It’s madness!” Still, Trump promised to “fight back” to ensure the integrity of the election. Evidence of fraud is turning up all over the place.

Indeed, a number of arrests have already been made, stretching back months, as more and more evidence of fraud emerges. In Vanderburgh County, Indiana, for example, Janet Reed was arrested on felony charges for sending out hundreds of ballot applications with the Democratic party box pre-checked. In Gregg County, Texas, a county commissioner and three others were arrested in September on 134 felony charges of election fraud, illegal voting, and more in a scheme to help Democrats in a recent election. Numerous other arrests on elections charges have been made nationwide, and police are investigating many more cases.

Michigan, a key state in the election, has also been plagued by reports of fraud and irregularities. The investigative journalist group Project Veritas, for instance, released an interview with a U.S. Postal Service worker who explained that he was ordered by his superior to post-mark ballots for the day before they were received. “Separate them from standard letter mail so they can hand stamp them with yesterday’s date and put them through,” the worker said he was told. Another video, this one from Nevada, includes a postal worker pledging to use voter fraud to remove Trump from office.

While counting the mailed-in votes in Detroit, observers and Republicans were barred from watching, with cardboard and other obstructions placed in the way. The bizarre spectacle led to widespread accusations of impropriety and a lawsuit by the Trump campaign. Similar antics are occurring in Democrat strongholds across the state and beyond as lawless efforts to block GOP poll watchers and election observers are caught on tape by concerned citizens.

And those were hardly the only problems with mail-in voting in Michigan. For instance, according to publicly available data on the Department of States Michigan Voter Information Center, a 118-year-old man named William Bradley received an absentee ballot in Wayne County, Michigan, and voted with it. The problem is that Bradley actually died in 1984. Similarly, a 120-year-old woman named June Aiken also voted absentee in Jackson County, Michigan. Same for Donna Brydges, who was born in 1901 and voted absentee in Michigan’s Mason County.

Obviously, none of those votes were legitimate. Authorities responded to the scandal by claiming that even though the government Web page shows dead people voted, they do not count those votes once they become aware of them, and based on that statement, phony “fact check” services falsely claimed the reports of dead voters in Michigan were false. Republican Party officials nationwide are calling for law-enforcement officials to visit the addresses and determine what is going on so that criminals involved in election fraud can be prosecuted and punished. Countless similar examples from Michigan and other states will undoubtedly be discovered in the days and weeks ahead. In Florida, a man has already been arrested for voting using ballots belonging to the dead.

In Wisconsin, which is also crucial to the 2020 election, the results are more than a little suspicious, critics said. For one, the state counted more votes in 2020 than it had registered voters in 2018. However, even comparing the latest official numbers on voter registration, 3.68 million, with the number of votes counted, 3.3 million, reveals that about 90 percent of registered voters turned out. Unlike many states, Wisconsin allows eligible voters to register on the day of the election, and so the state calculates turnout differently than many jurisdictions, using all eligible voters rather than all registered voters. But still, more than a few critics, including the president’s sons, argued that the numbers do not make sense. Breaking down the numbers even further, a number of precincts in Milwaukee included extremely high voter turnout that has raised suspicion nationwide.

Even conservative states run by Republicans have not been immune to Democrat fraud. In Texas, for example, Harris County, home to left-leaning Houston, appears to be the epicenter of most of the fraud. Raymond Stewart, a poll watcher and retired police officer, submitted a sworn affidavit to the district attorney about a Houston precinct judge — identified in news reports as a Democrat — and election staff who unlawfully used a “large stack of Texas driver’s licenses” to allow people to vote illegally at a “drive-through voting window.”

“Staff would come inside from the drive-through voting booth and scan a driver’s license from someone outside and get a ticket and return outside,” Stewart said. “But sometimes a staff member would search through the stack of driver’s license on the table, then scan it, receive a ticket and also go outside to the drive-through booth. As a Police Officer, I quickly became suspicious that they were committing a crime by having the unattended D.L.’s just sitting on the table and that possible voting crimes were being committed using these forms of ID.”

The problems in Texas appear to go very deep. The state political director for Joe Biden’s campaign, Dallas Jones, has been accused in affidavits filed at the Texas Supreme Court of operating a massive, illegal ballot-harvesting scheme involving as many as 700,000 ballots. The affidavits making the accusations, filed by a former FBI agent and retired police officer, allege that Jones was also ordering those ballots to be filled out in the names of homeless, dead, and elderly people. National File broke the story.

“This scheme involves voter fraud on a massive scale,” explained retired Houston Police Department Captain Mark Aguirre in his sworn statement. Using interviews, documents, and other information, Aguirre publicly identified Jones, Texas State Senator Borris Miles, political consultant Gerald Womack, and Harris County Commissioner Rodney Ellis. “This entire operation is being run by the elite politicians of the Democrat Party in Houston/Harris County,” the retired lawman explained, adding that he had video evidence as well.

Project Veritas also released video footage from San Antonio suggesting electoral fraud there, with somebody “helping” an elderly citizen to change her votes from Republican to Democrat. “What’s shown in the video is shocking and should alarm all Texans who care about election integrity,” Texas Attorney General Paxton said in a statement. “We are aggressively investigating the serious allegations and potential crimes that Project Veritas’s documentary audio and video recordings shed light on today.”

One of the non-profit organizations at the forefront of ensuring election integrity is the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF). Attorneys backed by the group already announced that they would be representing an unknown number of voters in Arizona, including Laurie Aguilera and anonymous plaintiffs, whose ballots were rejected after they were instructed to fill them out with Sharpies instead of pens that can be read by the machine. The scandal is being referred to as “Sharpiegate” by those fighting voter fraud across the nation.

“Plaintiff fed her ballot into the ballot box. The ballot box failed to properly register her vote, causing a poll-worker to cancel her ballot in the presence of Plaintiff,” the lawsuit explains. “Plaintiff requested a new ballot but, upon information and belief, upon consultation with the Maricopa County Recorder’s Office, the poll workers refused to provide her with one.”

That means the system “failed to provide for the maximum degree of correctness because at least some voters experienced issues having their ballots read because of the use of the Sharpie marking devices,” the lawsuit states, arguing that upwards of 80 percent of ballots at some locations were affected by the issue. The law requires integrity in elections so that citizens can be confident that their elected officials were legitimately elected by the people.

PILF President and General Counsel J. Christian Adams, an expert on vote-integrity issues, emphasized the seriousness of the issue. “These voters were denied the right to vote. Arizona election officials allegedly were part of the problem, and denial of the right to vote should not occur because of failures in the process of casting a ballot,” he said. “We are asking that all ballots that were uncured or denied be identified and allowed to be cured.”

Even more sophisticated methods are also being alleged. Former intelligence and military officials interviewed by Dave Janda on Operation Freedom and Brannon Howse on Worldview Weekend alleged that computer code would be used. “Scorecard steals the elections by tampering with the computers at the transfer points,” explained Lieutenant General Tom McInerney, referring to a computer program known as Scorecard used by vote-fraud perpetrators to rig the vote in an imperceptible way.

In the run-up to the election, Biden bragged about having the largest “voter fraud organization” in history. “We’re in a situation where we have put together — and youse guys did it for President Obama’s administration before this — we have put together the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics,” he said in an interview. The fake media and fake “fact checkers” dismissed it as Biden misspeaking. However, the evidence suggests Biden may have been speaking the truth.

As evidence of massive, widespread fraud from Democrat-controlled jurisdictions continues to pile up, and as the establishment media and the Big Tech firms try frantically to cover it up so they can declare Biden the winner, more than a few experts have suggested that an attempted coup d’etat is underway. In fact, The New American magazine warned that the very same shadowy officials who ran “Color Revolution” operations across Eastern Europe were making plans to target the U.S. president at home.

Whether they succeed or not will depend on what happens in the coming days.

Update: Early reports from Milwaukee City Wire showing turnout of over 200 percent in some Milwaukee wards were based on data that the outlet said have since been updated. This article has been updated based on that new information as well. Authorities in Milwaukee who spoke to The New American on background claimed reports of voter fraud from across America were a “conspiracy theory” by President Trump.

Alex Newman: School: Individualism and Objectivity Are “White Supremacy” 4 (1)

by Alex Newman

Elementary school children in at least one government school in Virginia were taught the outrageously racist lie that “objectivity,” “perfectionism,” “individualism,” and a dozen or so other traits are actually characteristics of “white supremacy.” Parents were outraged. But this is just the tip of the iceberg.

In the real world, of course, countless people of all “races” believe in those values. Anyone who implies that those characteristics and values are inherently tied to European and Western peoples would be a racist by definition, more than a few critics observed in response to the scandal.

Prominent India-born writer Asra Nomani, for instance, slammed the dangerous propaganda, calling it “political corruption at its most lethal — for the soul of our kids.” She also ridiculed the silly narrative that proper punctuation and grammar are racist.

Other critics were even more forceful. “Ironically, this type of ‘anti-racism’ indoctrination is alarmingly racist and ignorant,” observed Rita Panahi, a prominent Australian columnist of Iranian origin, in commenting on the toxic propaganda being force-fed to captive children in America.

And yet, students ages 6 through 11 at the Belvedere Elementary School in Virginia were subjected to this and more. And children all over the nation and beyond are stewing in this sort of ignorant racism being peddled by government schools, evidence available all over the Internet shows.

This particular bit of propaganda originated in the 2001 “Dismantling Racism Workbook.” It was produced by fringe leftwing extremists Kenneth Jackson Jones and Tema Okun, a vocal self-declared supporter of proud communist terrorist Bill Ayers of the Weather Underground. There is a method to the apparent communist madness.

Other traits and values that are listed in the program as characteristics of “white supremacy” include having a “sense of urgency,” “defensiveness,” “quantity over quality,” “worship of the written word,” “only one right way,” “either / or thinking,” “power hoarding,” “fear of conflict,” “progress is bigger, more,” and “right to comfort.”

Of course, these ramblings are so idiotic and racist that they would normally just be laughed off by normal people as the product of a pathetic lunatic with too much time on their hands and hatred in their heart. Unfortunately, the lunacy is being forced on gullible, naive children without any context or reference for them to understand just how absurd it is. That makes it extremely dangerous.

Consider the almost comical levels of idiocy here. Objectivity, for instance, is defined in the dictionary as a “lack of judgment, bias, or prejudice.” Do only white supremacists lack bias, judgment, or prejudice? The irony is off the charts, though it was not immediately clear if perceiving irony was also a white-supremacist trait.

Individualism, meanwhile, is defined in the dictionary as “belief in the primary importance of the individual and in the virtues of self-reliance and personal independence.” Do only white supremacists believe in self-reliance and personal independence? If a fair-skinned person said something so dumb, they’d be slammed as a racist — and rightfully so. And yet children are being taught this garbage as truth.

The latest scandal comes as Americans nationwide recoil in horror in response to revelations that “Critical Race Theory” was being forced on federal employees thanks to the Obama administration. President Trump promptly rescinded the Obama-era measure. But massive damage has already been done. And in public schools, it continues uninterrupted.

THE TAKEAWAY

This clown-world level absurdity in “education” is only possible in an absurd system such as the tax-funded public-school monopoly that exists today. In a free market, no sensible parent would ever pay anything to have their child indoctrinated with hateful, racist, and ridiculous propaganda such as the garbage described above.

If parents do not wake up, it will be their children and their nation who will pay the enormous price.

Alex Newman: “Hail Satan”- After Terrorizing Churches, BLM Witchcraft Exposed 5 (2)

by Alex Newman

There is now proof that there are very dark forces behind Black Lives Matter, and it’s not just the blatant Marxism of its founders and leaders. The darkness literally includes summoning dead spirits and allowing them to work through BLM leaders. Sound crazy? BLM bosses admit it.

Clues about the true nature of BLM have been available for quite some time. Last month, Black Lives Matter activists terrorized church attendees in Troy, New York, while chanting “hail Satan.” They even shrieked at black families and young mothers trying to get in the building. Just this week in Kenosha, Wisconsin, a church with a “Black Lives Matter” sign on it was torched by BLM activists. In a video that went viral this week, a mob of white BLM activists shout at a couple at a D.C. restaurant for refusing to raise their fists, with one activist asking the confused victims, “Are you a Christian?”

Now, newly released audio recordings reveal the occult practices, ancestor worship, African paganism, and literal witchcraft of at least one of the national group’s co-founders, as well as the founder of BLM’s Los Angeles chapter. Apparently the entire George Soros-funded leadership of BLM is involved in these practices as well.

In the audio, BLM co-founder Patrice Cullors, who boasted in a TV interview of being a “trained Marxist,” revealed that she is also consulting spiritual entities and allowing them to “work through” her. “I’m calling for spirituality to be deeply radical,” she said. “We’re not just having a social justice movement, this is a spiritual movement.”

Of course, Christians, pointing to Ephesians 6:12 and its reference to spiritual warfare, have been making this argument since the fruit of BLM became more clear: destruction, hate, looting, burning, Marxism, division, riots, and more. But until recently, the spiritual nature of the struggle was simply inferred and deduced from the Bible and the news. Now, the proof is available to all.

In a recorded conversation with Cullors, BLM Los Angeles founder and California State University Professor of “African Studies” Melina Abdulla reveals more than she thought she should have. “Maybe I’m sharing too much, but we’ve become very intimate with the spirits that we call on regularly, right.” she explained. “Like, each of them seems to have a different presence and personality, you know. I laugh a lot with Wakisha, you know. And I didn’t meet her in her body, right, I met her through this work.”

Cullors echoes the sentiments of Abdulla. “It’s a very important practice, um, hashtags are for us, are way more than a hashtag, it is, um, literally almost resurrecting a spirit so they can work through us to get the work that we need to get done,” said Cullors, one of the three founders of BLM. “I started to feel personally connected and responsible and accountable to them, both from a deeply political place, but also from a deeply spiritual place.”

“Always, you know, in my tradition you offer things that that your loved one who passed away would want, you know, whether it’s like honey or tobacco, things like that,” the trained Marxist and BLM co-founder continued. “And that’s so important, not just for us to be in direct relationship to our people who’ve passed, but also for them to know we’ve remembered them. Um, I believe so many of them work through us.”

Cullors also admits that the very first thing BLM leaders do when they hear of a “murder” is to pray to the spirits and “pour libation.” Again, she emphasized, this is not just about “racial and social justice.” “At its core, it’s a spiritual movement,” she continued. “You can’t pretend like that work is just organizing work. That’s, you know, that’s some serious stuff.”

The whole “say his name” mantra also has deep spiritual significance, according to Cullors. “When we say the names, right, so we speak their names, we say her name, say their names, we do that all the time that, you kind of invoke that spirit, and then those spirits actually become present with you,” she explained, revealing something that virtually none of the “useful idiots” attending BLM rallies understand.

“Spirituality is at the center of Black Lives Matter, and I think that’s not just for us, I feel like so many, um, leaders and so many organizers, um, are deeply engaged and in a pretty, um, important spiritual practice,” Cullors continued. “I don’t think I could I could do this work without that. I don’t think I could do it as long as I’ve done it, and as consistently. Um, it feels like if I didn’t do that it would be antithetical to this work.”

Talk-show host and Christian attorney Abraham Hamilton, III, first aired the audio recordings on August 19 during his show The Hamilton Corner. His conclusion is that the conversation proves top BLM leaders are involved in witchcraft, “summoning the spirits of the dead,” and engaging in other satanic practices that are firmly condemned and strictly prohibited in the Bible.

“What they are describing is their adherence to the Yoruba religion of Ifa, to where they are summoning dead spirits,” Hamilton explained before getting into more depth about the occult pagan practices. What Cullors revealed, Hamilton continued, is exactly what the Apostle Paul was referring to in Ephesians when he explained that Christians wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against spiritual wickedness.

Quoting the Bible, Hamilton also noted the link between those who sacrifice children to demon gods such as Molech (abortion) and summoning spirits (witchcraft). Interestingly, the Yoruba were known for practicing human sacrifice until Christianity became more prevalent in the region.

The Bible is very clear about what is happening here, as consulting spirits of the dead is strictly prohibited. In fact, under the Old Testament law revealed by God for Israel, necromancy — consulting the dead — was punishable by death. All those who do it are described as “detestable” to God. Multiple passages in the Old and New Testaments also suggest that the supposed “spirits” that necromancers and witches believe they are communicating with, or sacrificing things to, are in fact demons.

Professor Abdulla’s voice message machine said she was on sabbatical for the 2019-2020 academic year. Nobody answered any of the other phone numbers listed at the Pan-African Studies department, and messages seeking comment by The New American were not returned. Abdulla did not respond to an e-mail before press time.

 

Terrorizing Churches

Even before the audio became public, the true nature of BLM was becoming obvious for all to see. Last month, supposedly responding to a church’s giveaway of an AR-15, BLM activists terrorized black and white churchgoers alike in Troy. They literally beat Christian adults and harassed little children while shouting obscenities and chanting “hail Satan.”

A young mother and her very young children, as well as a black family, had to be escorted by church members through the screaming mob of BLM supporters. The mob threatened to call Child Protective Services on parents in the church and started shrieking “save those kids” as families walked by. At least one protester even threatened to torch the church.

While the scenes at Grace Baptist Church were captured on video and made headlines across conservative-leaning independent media, the establishment’s propaganda organs had a virtual black-out on the story. Only the local paper ran an article — a highly biased “article” against the church. No politicians rushed to condone the violence and hatred on display. The government official involved has not been fired.

The mob was angry about a variety of issues, especially the church’s decision to give away an AR-15 rifle. On several occasions over the last decade, the church has given away or raffled off the classic and highly popular AR-15 rifle, partly in response to unconstitutional government attacks on the right to keep and bear arms. The church said on social media that it had no regrets over its decisions.

Much of the barbarism was caught on video. One clip, for instance, shows violent BLM supporters physically attacking church members. At about 1:20 in the video, a protester can be seen grabbing a church attendee and putting him in a headlock after a verbal spat. Another BLM activist then begins savagely beating the victim, throwing punch after punch after punch. A man identified by the church as Alexander Contompasis was seen punching two church members from behind before pushing the pastor. Police eventually show up to stop the physical attacks on churchgoers.

In a statement to The New American, Pastor John Koletas said the church has stood firmly against communism and totalitarianism since it was founded in 1987. “Too many Americans view the church as weak and apathetic to self defense and the biblical command to arm ourselves,” he said, explaining the decision to give away a semi-automatic rifle in light of that and unconstitutional gun-control policies. “We wanted to be an encouragement to lawful gun owners who had been vilified by the anti-Christian, socialist media and fake, phony, and fraudulent religious leaders.”

“When this year’s gun giveaway was announced, it brought out the God haters and devilish forces again,” Koletas continued, adding that the reasons for the attack by the BLM mob included anger over the church continuing to hold services during coronavirus, the preaching, and the promotion of firearms ownership through the AR-15 giveaway. “All were angry that we refused to back down on all accounts.”

Koletas expressed shock about the “screaming” mob of BLM activists who “mocked and jeered” a black missionary family that was attending. Other videos recorded during the attacks showed a man, identified by the church as Lukee Forbes, berating a black man on the steps of the church. The reason: “He dared to stand with the church instead of the communist detractors,” Koletas said, adding that Forbes was a government employee of the City of Albany who did time in prison for nearly beating a homosexual to death after a “Pride” parade.

Making matters worse is that the police refused to intervene until the mob actually became physically violent, Koletas said. In fact, they even sent some church members away rather than protect their rights to religious liberty, freedom of association, and private property from the angry BLM mob. “A black couple from our church were turned away by the police because of the mob: ‘tonight might not be the best day to go to church,’” he continued.

The pastor responded to the hate and extremism by inviting the mob inside, hoping for peaceful dialogue and that the angry protesters would benefit from hearing about the Bible. Some went in, but when invited to receive salvation, they became disruptive, with some again threatening violence and bearing false witness against the pastor, he explained.

All of that evil should have been evidence enough to understand the reality of what is going on and what BLM is really about. But the true spiritual nature of the BLM mob was even more clearly evident throughout the mob’s rampage. According to Koletas and other witnesses, as well as video evidence, an actual witch stood outside the church with candles and ritual drawings. Cries of “hail Satan” could be heard clearly, too.

The spiritual implications of the billionaire-funded BLM attack on America are becoming clearer. As The New American has been documenting for months, the Marxism and the hatred of the BLM has been beyond dispute for quite some time. Now, the occult connections of the leadership and the spiritual nature of the battle are beyond dispute, too.

BLM is not just an attack on liberty, property, statues of great Americans, history, and Western civilization. It is an attack on Christianity and God, too. Churches must take their rightful place on the front lines.

Alex Newman: TN to Parents-Do NOT Watch Kids’ Online Classes 4 (1)

by Alex Newman

Government education bureaucrats in Tennessee are under fire again after asking parents to sign a form pledging not to watch their children’s online public-school classes, drawing suspicion and criticism from across America. When outrage ensued, officials backed down, but still asked parents not to record or share the lessons.

The nationwide scandal over the requests comes as multiple government-school teachers have been publicly fretting on social media about parents finding potentially out what their children are being exposed to amid virtual classes. It also comes right after Tennessee officials were forced to walk back a plan to send swarms of government agents to perform “wellbeing” checks on every child in the state.

The form in question attempts to justify the bizarre request that parents stay away by claiming that it was about protecting “student privacy” to “the greatest extent possible.” However, with government schools deliberately obliterating privacy rights of children for data-mining and other purposes, and sharing that data with practically anyone, few analysts believe the dubious excuse.

“RCS strongly discourages non student observation of online meetings due to the potential of confidential information about a student being revealed,” explained the form sent home by the Rutherford County Schools district that was obtained by The Tennessee Star. “Violation of this agreement may result in RCS removing my child from the virtual meeting.”

In short, if a parent decided to check on what their child was being taught, that child could be removed from the virtual classroom. According to “educators” who have expressed concerns about parents seeing what is going on, major concerns are that parents might disagree with or even interfere with the indoctrination on gender, sexuality, LGBT, race-mongering, history, and other controversial subjects.

Philadelphia teacher Matthew Kay, for instance, publicly expressed a common concern among teachers recently. “So, this fall, virtual class discussions will have many potential spectators — parents, siblings, etc. — in the same room. We’ll never be quite sure who is overhearing the discourse. What does this do for our equity/inclusion work?” he wondered without explaining why he was doing “equity/inclusion work.”

“I am most intrigued by the damage that ‘helicopter/snowplow’ parents can do in honest conversations about gender/sexuality,” he continued after saying race “conversations” are in his “wheelhouse,” even worrying about leftist parents being upset. “If we are engaged in the messy work of destabilizing  a kids [sic] racism or homophobia or transphobia — how much do we want their classmates’ parents piling on?”

Naturally, parents and citizens were incensed at the form in Tennessee asking them to stay out. The outrage forced the school district to walk back the demands, but officials still insisted that parents would not be allowed to record or share the content. “We are aware of the concern that has been raised about this distance-learning letter that was sent to parents,” district spokesman James Evans told the media.

Claiming that the intent was not to prevent parents from being involved with their children but to “protect” supposed “academic privacy,” Evans said the district has now shifted its policy. “We have issued new guidance to principals that parents can assist their children during virtual group lessons with permission of the instructor but should refrain from sharing or recording any information about other students in the classroom,” he said.

The bizarre request is especially ironic considering that just last week, Tennessee parents were boiling over a plot to send government agents into every family home to check on the “wellbeing” of every child in the state, including homeschoolers. The plan called for the agents to try to speak with the children without parents to check on whether their “needs” were being “met.” Parents who resist would have their information placed in a database.

Apparently phony Republican leaders in the state of Tennessee believe they have a right to propagandize “our” children without interference from parents. Parents, by contrast, have no right to raise their own children without interference from government. Only a massive, nationwide outrage campaign that included furious legislators speaking out forced Governor Bill Lee and “Education” Commissioner Penny Schwinn to go back to the drawing board.

THE TAKEAWAY

Government is growing increasingly arrogant in its war against families and parents over control of the raising and upbringing of children. Because molding the minds of the next generation is such an awesome power, tyrants everywhere have desperately sought it out. Only educated and active parents will be capable of pushing the tyrants back. They must. Liberty literally depends on it.

Alex Newman: Bill Gates: Philanthropist or Scoundrel? 5 (1)

by Alex Newman

It is undeniable that Bill Gates gives lots of his own money to causes around the world, causing many to dub him a philanthropist. But his causes and motives are questionable.

He has already subjected America’s children to educational quackery as the main sponsor of Common Core, and he has gathered more data on you and every American than you could imagine. Now, as this article will show, one of the world’s leading population-control zealots wants to inject you, your whole family, and every single person on the entire planet with an as-yet undeveloped and untested vaccine — supposedly to protect against coronavirus. Then he wants to track you using technology that sounds like it comes out of a science fiction movie. And unless and until everybody on Earth submits to his vaccination demands, the technocratic globalist has declared repeatedly, society cannot and will not return to normal. That man, of course, is Microsoft founder Bill Gates — perhaps one of the most controversial people in the world right now, despite media adulation.

With all Gates’ connections, media appearances, and demands, one might be forgiven for thinking that he was emperor of the world. And if humanity is not careful, the agenda Gates represents may well succeed — potentially in the near term. That means liberty, health freedom, the family, self-government, much of the population, and the economy are in mortal danger.

Simply put, Bill Gates is potentially dangerous because he has great wealth and great influence, both of which he uses to try to make the world follow his dictates. Gates is so powerful that he was able — almost single-handedly — to impose the national education standards known as Common Core on almost the entire nation. (Elite private schools such as those his children attended proudly rejected it.) Gates put more than $2 billion of his own money into the scheme, backed by the Obama administration. Pointedly, he pushed the installation of Common Core though there were indications that it would lead to reduced educational quality. In fact, Common Core’s Validation Committee refused to sign off on the plans because they were so bad. And Gates himself claimed to be unsure about its success. “It would be great if our education stuff worked, but that we won’t know for probably a decade,” the tycoon admitted in 2014. Since then, multiple studies of U.S. students have confirmed that the standards led to scores cratering across the board, making American children less educated than ever before.

Despite Common Core’s failures, with help from the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), Gates’ educational vision is going global. In 2004, Gates was in Paris to sign an agreement with UNESCO on behalf of Microsoft to work on global standards, guidelines, curriculum, and technology. The UN agency had already been working on centralizing control over education for decades. And the UN’s educational goals don’t seem to be about making children into critical thinkers; among other schemes, it peddled the World Core Curriculum. Written by Assistant UN Secretary-General Robert Muller, the scheme was based on the teachings of Lucifer Publishing Company founder Alice Bailey, an advocate of world government and a one-world religion merging many of the world’s religions together under one banner.

On the global health front, Gates’ activities are as ill-advised and harmful as his education schemes — perhaps more harmful. Now that Trump has put on hold U.S. contributions to the World Health Organization, Gates is the world’s largest single donor to WHO — an outfit literally run by a Communist Chinese-backed Politburo member of an ethno-Marxist terror organization from Ethiopia. He is the world’s largest single financier of vaccines, too, vaccines that are notorious for their harmful side effects.

Most of the major media fawn over Bill Gates, portraying him as some sort of nerdy, self-made business genius turned selfless and benevolent “philanthropist” simply working to “save” and “help” humanity. The reality, though, as this article will show, is much different. Gates, afflicted with the same messianic complex so common among the global elites, is pushing an agenda of globalism, technocracy (rule by scientific elites instead of self-government), forced vaccines, dangerous indoctrination, and totalitarianism. And one does not need to dig deep to find the abundant evidence.

What Does Bill Gates Believe?

Perhaps the issue that has defined Gates’ giving and efforts more than any other is population control — in particular, the Malthusian idea that there are too many people on the planet for “Mother Earth” to sustain. In his public statements and in his “charity,” Gates and his wife, Melinda, have focused on “overpopulation.”

It appears this passion was instilled in him by his father, Planned Parenthood bigwig Bill Gates, Sr., a prominent former attorney. Gates, Sr. still advises Junior, despite being in his mid-90s.

“When I was growing up, my parents were always involved in various volunteer things,” Gates, Jr. said in a 2003 interview with Bill Moyers on PBS. “My dad was head of Planned Parenthood. And it was very controversial to be involved with that. And so it’s fascinating; at the dinner table my parents are very good at sharing the things that they were doing, and almost treating us like adults, talking about that.” In short, Gates, Sr. was a eugenicist.

Like father, like son — the younger Gates has picked up where his father left off, showering hundreds of millions on abortion behemoth Planned Parenthood and other abortionist groups. At a 2017 “Global Family Planning Summit” in London, Gates’ wife announced that the Gates Foundation would be spending almost $400 million on population-control schemes through 2020 — much of which has and will, at least indirectly, finance the killing of pre-born babies. She also called for sex education to begin “very, very early.” Gates has also been a major donor to the UN Population Fund, the pro-abortion UN agency that specializes in reducing the human population and has been exposed in Congress working with the Communist Chinese government on forced abortions and forced sterilizations.

Gates also thinks contraception should be ubiquitous, if not mandatory. In 1997, Gates and his wife started pouring money into various forms of birth control. And Gates-funded contraception hasn’t only meant fewer babies, it has also led to other dangers and deaths. For instance, Gates funded and peddled the contraceptive Depo Provera — especially to Third World women. Aside from preventing pregnancy, sometimes by inducing abortion, it was blamed by experts for causing or at least contributing to cervical cancer, breast cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, stroke, heart attack, sterility, and miscarriages. It also encouraged the spread of  HIV/AIDS, chlamydia, and other debilitating and deadly venereal diseases. The Gates Foundation spent $2.6 billion buying and giving this drug to 100 million African women.

On politics, while Gates normally remains quiet, he has spoken out against President Donald Trump and has come down firmly on the side of Democrats and the establishment for years. During the 2016 election, he funded three Democrat campaigns for Congress. In 2012, the tech billionaire hosted a fundraising dinner for Barack Obama’s campaign, charging attendees almost $13,000 per plate.

He has also been outspoken about his desire to see a more powerful federal government and president. “Right now it feels like I wish there was slightly more power in the presidency to avoid some of these deadlocks,” Gates was quoted as saying, adding that he wished America had a system more like the United Kingdom. “So I think what [Obama] wants to do and what he’s actually able to do, the gap is so big there that it’s hard to know in some ways.” More on Gates’ wishes for more command and control later.

Patrick Wood, author of two key books exposing the global elites’ push for technocracy, blasted the Microsoft founder and highlighted his crucial role in the push for global governance by experts and technocrats. “Bill Gates exhibits the mind of a Technocrat in three key areas: education, vaccines and population control and data,” said Wood, who worked with the late Antony Sutton to expose the Trilateral Commission. “Every single initiative that he is involved in today is central to the implementation of Technocracy on a global scale, including the drive for a permanent ID for every human on planet earth.”

Vaccines for Population Control?

Despite being highly counter-intuitive at first glance, even Gates’ obsession with vaccines fits into his population-control agenda. Indeed, Gates, the world’s largest financier of vaccines, is notorious for peddling the idea that vaccines will be a crucial tool in reducing the population.

During a 2010 “TED Talk,” for example, Gates made clear his belief that a lower population was necessary to save the planet. After he told the audience that human emissions of carbon dioxide would have to go down to zero to avoid killing the planet, he totaled up emissions from each person and said, “Probably one of these numbers is going to have to get pretty near to zero.” He added, “The world today has about six billion people. That’s headed up to about nine billion. Now, if we do a really great job on new vaccines, healthcare, and reproductive health services [contraception and abortion], we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.”

Did you catch that? Vaccines, “healthcare,” abortion, and contraception are all part of a comprehensive strategy to reduce the number of people on Earth.

The next year, he was singing the same tune. In a 2011 interview, he told CNN’s Sanjay Gupta that he was hoping for “unbelievable progress in both inventing new vaccines and making sure they get out to all the children who need them.” “We only need about six or seven more — and then you would have all the tools to reduce childhood death, reduce population growth, and everything — the stability, the environment — benefits from that,” he continued. (Emphasis added.) Again, notice that Gates ties vaccines to reducing the population, and says that fewer people will be good for “stability” and the “environment.”

Now, apologists for Bill Gates argue that what he really means is that by vaccinating everyone, more parents will choose to have fewer children. Gates himself has suggested that this is what he meant with his cryptic comments about using vaccines to reduce the population. “A surprising but critical fact we learned was that reducing the number of deaths actually reduces population growth,” he claimed. But the track record of Gates’ vaccination programs suggests that in reality, the vaccines themselves will be used to thin the population — and not by encouraging parents to have fewer children.

Gates’ Vaccine Programs

Consider a 2014 “tetanus” vaccination campaign in Kenya targeting women and girls by the UN’s WHO and UNICEF that was financed in large part by Gates — this in a nation that had recently been targeted by the UN Population Fund in a report for drastic population-control efforts. Concerned about the vaccines, the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association obtained multiple samples of the vials and sent them to independent labs for testing. They found that the vaccines were laced with beta human chorionic gonadotropin immunogen, which causes the body to stop a pregnancy from coming to term. Women become infertile because their own immune systems attack the critical hormone hCG. WHO discovered in 1976 this “birth-control” vaccine and injected the substance into women in other nations, including Mexico, Nicaragua, the Philippines, and beyond.

“This proved right our worst fears; that this WHO campaign is not about eradicating neonatal tetanus but [is] a well-coordinated forceful population control mass sterilization exercise using a proven fertility regulating vaccine,” explained Dr. Wahome Ngare, spokesman for the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association. “The unfortunate truth is that the vaccine was laced with hCG [immunogen] just like the one used in the South American cases. Further, none of the girls and women given the vaccination were informed of its contraceptive effect.” Shortly after this, the Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops released a statement signed by every Catholic bishop in Kenya warning people to avoid the vaccines, saying, “We are convinced that it is indeed a disguised population control program.” This incident was one of several highlighted recently on the floor of the Italian Parliament, with MP Sara Cunial criticizing Gates for sterilizing large numbers of African women and calling for him to be prosecuted for crimes against humanity.

Meanwhile, WHO was exposed by The New American in January of 2019 training medical professionals to lie about the safety and efficacy of vaccines. Declaring that “vaccine hesitancy” was one of the greatest threats to “global health,” the Gates-funded UN agency created a training guide for health workers. It gives strategies for convincing parents to comply with vaccination programs that include using manipulation and even providing misleading or downright false answers to possible questions parents might ask. “Can vaccines cause harmful side effects, illness and even death?” a hypothetical hesitant parent in the program asks the doctor. “No, vaccines are very safe,” the health worker is instructed to say, even though that is demonstrably false. Every vaccine maker in the world acknowledges that vaccines can cause harmful side effects, illness, and even death — that is why they successfully lobbied the U.S. Congress for a total exemption from all liability, forcing U.S. taxpayers to pay billions of dollars in damages to victims of vaccines.

Even WHO admitted last year that most of the polio paralysis around the world was actually caused by the Gates-funded polio vaccination campaigns in Africa and Asia. According to an Associated Press report published on November 25, 2019, “Global health numbers show there are now more children being paralyzed by viruses originating in vaccines than in the wild.” The WHO-created “Independent Monitoring Board” also warned in a report that month that the vaccine-derived polio virus was “spreading uncontrolled in West Africa.” And it described the attitude of  WHO and its “partners” to this news as “relaxed.”

In India, Gates is also blamed for unleashing hell on the population under the guise of “vaccination” programs. Writing in the Indian Journal of Medical Ethics, Indian doctors Neetu Vashisht and Jacob Puliye blamed the WHO/Gates polio vaccination programs for causing almost 50,000 additional cases of paralysis in children in just one year. Almost half a million cases of paralysis attributed to the vaccines occurred between 2000 and 2017, according to doctors cited by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and other prominent vaccine skeptics. Indian authorities eventually got involved and worked to stamp out Gates’ influence, but the damage was done. Gates-backed trials of HPV vaccines, given to tribal children in rural India without parental consent, also killed and injured many victims, according to media reports of lawsuits that went all the way to that nation’s Supreme Court. The scandal eventually concluded with the government being forced to make drastic changes to its vaccine permissions, including restrictions on foreign groups; however, Indian law had no provisions to penalize ethical and legal violations in trials. In addition, an all-party parliamentary investigation accused Gates’ operatives of unethical practices in a bid to make profits for Big Pharma, an allegation the Gates-funded group behind the schemes denied.

Now, Gates wants to vaccinate the world against coronavirus. “The thing that will get us back to the world that we had before coronavirus is the vaccine and getting that out to seven billion people,” Gates said in one of many similar public statements, echoing propaganda being pumped out by the enormous network of think tanks, propagandists, pharmaceutical companies, and organizations that he funds. “Once you have a safe and effective vaccine and get that out to almost all of the people on the planet … we will go back to normal, and economies will recover.”

On April 30, Gates claimed on his blog that the idea of using drugs to treat COVID-19 was unrealistic and said that the only way to “go back to the way things were” will be to make sure that “almost every person on the planet has been vaccinated against coronavirus.” “Humankind has never had a more urgent task than creating broad immunity for coronavirus,” he claimed, adding that it should be given to newborns. “Realistically, if we’re going to return to normal, we need to develop a safe, effective vaccine. We need to make billions of doses, we need to get them out to every part of the world, and we need all of this to happen as quickly as possible.” The WHO will need to give its “approval,” he added, painting the UN outfit as a sort of global health ministry.

Global Tracking and Tyranny

But Gates really isn’t offering his vaccines as much as he is demanding people get them: Gates has been calling for everyone to receive a “digital certificate” proving that he or she has been vaccinated. In March, Gates said on his blog that the “question of which businesses should keep going is tricky,” but eventually “we will have some digital certificates to show who has recovered or been tested recently or when we have a vaccine who has received it.” Fauci at National Institutes of Health has echoed Gates’ rhetoric on having “coronavirus immunity cards” for everyone, and he was quoted in Politico saying this was “being discussed.”

This idea is hardly new. For years, Gates and other globalist billionaires, including multiple Rockefeller foundations, have been peddling the “ID2020” scheme. According to the effort’s website, the plot seeks to mandate that everyone on Earth have a “digital identity” that would follow them from birth to death. It would keep track of all sorts of data, including health and vaccine information, enabling governments and globalists to keep people everywhere under control. This has been a major focus of Gates’ work: Everyone must be identified, vaccinated, and tracked. A Gates-backed biometric ID for 1.2 billion Indians was the test run.

Starting in 2016, Gates funded research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to develop “a novel way to record a patient’s vaccination history: storing the data in a pattern of dye, invisible to the naked eye, that is delivered under the skin at the same time as the vaccine.” In a press release about the scheme released late last year, MIT said the technology “consists of nanocrystals called quantum dots.” This tattoo-type scheme would “remain under the skin where it emits near-infrared light that can be detected by a specially equipped smartphone.”

More recently, Microsoft published a patent for a “cryptocurrency system using body activity data,” which is now registered with the UN World Intellectual Property Organization. With the war on cash accelerating, this technology to obtain currency with a piece of technology embedded in the body could be used to implement a digital currency regime that would end privacy and put every individual at the mercy of the powers that be. The patent number on it is WO-2020-060606-A1. The numbers 2020 and 060606 (666) have been widely picked up online, fueling endless speculation and theories about their possible significance.

Much the same has happened regarding Gates’ funding of NIH research into the use of luciferase and luciferin, bio-luminescent compounds, in medical applications. In fairness to Gates, those two terms, which were invented before he was born, are used in biotechnology for their scientific meanings, not in reference to the prince of darkness.

“Contact tracing” schemes to track everyone under the guise of stopping the coronavirus, which are being rolled out worldwide, are also being funded by Gates, along with George Soros. Everything from hiring an “army” of contact tracers to using smartphones as tracking devices is now under way. According to top local, state, and even WHO officials, the tracing schemes will also be used for splitting up families if a member of the family is suspected of having been exposed to COVID-19.

Former U.S. Congressman Ron Paul, a medical doctor, has been highly critical of these coronavirus efforts, making a good case that these are totalitarian actions. “If government can force individuals to receive medical treatment against their will, then there is no reason why government cannot force individuals to buy medical insurance, prohibit them from owning firearms, dictate their terms of employment, and prevent them from taking arguably harmful actions like smoking marijuana or drinking raw milk,” he said. “Similarly, if government can override parents’ wishes regarding medical treatment for their children, then there is no reason why government cannot usurp parental authority in other areas, such as education.”

He added that Americans should “reject this ‘deal.’ Instead, they should demand an immediate end to the lockdowns and the restoration of individual responsibility for deciding how best to protect their health.”

Preparing Well — or a Little Too Well?

Propagandists in the establishment media have been fawning over Gates and his supposed foresight, noting that the billionaire technocrat has been warning about a looming pandemic for many years. And it’s true — he has been. In fact, the preparations and statements he has made over the years were so eerily similar to the way things played out under COVID-19 that they have more than a few critics crying foul. Clearly, Gates and his allies at the globalist World Economic Forum (WEF) were getting ready to use a pandemic to remake the world to suit their technocratic vision.

In October 2019, Gates and the WEF put on Event 201 at the “Bloomberg School of Public Health” at Johns Hopkins University. The program simulated an “outbreak of a novel zoonotic coronavirus transmitted from bats to pigs to people that eventually becomes efficiently transmissible from person to person, leading to a severe pandemic.” The pathogen and disease “are modeled largely on SARS, but it is more transmissible in the community setting by people with mild symptoms.” Key figures from Big Government (including China’s), Big Business, and Big Pharma all participated. In the scenario the nightmare only ends when a vaccine comes along. And naturally, tyranny is the preferred response — everything from censoring social media to autocratic control over the public were celebrated as necessary.

Such planning isn’t anything new, though. A decade earlier, the Rockefeller Foundation issued a report headlined “Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development.” The report featured four scenarios that could help pave the road toward the world order envisioned by globalists. One was a future pandemic scenario, dubbed “LOCK STEP,” in which the United States suffers huge losses from an outbreak due to a lack of tyranny, while Communist China fares much better due to its ruthless totalitarian system with no constraints on government power.

The Rockefeller Foundation’s LOCK STEP scenario goes on to outline the expected results of this pandemic. Citizens everywhere will demand “top-down direction and oversight” over whole nations and economies. The scenario also touts, among other policies to supposedly deal with the outbreak, “biometric ID for all citizens,” “tighter regulation of key industries,” “a suite of new regulations and agreements,” and other power grabs allegedly needed to “restore order and, importantly, economic growth.” In fact, reading the decade-old report feels very much like reading the news today, with the very same “solutions” being advanced that all tend to erode liberty.

Speaking with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, Gates praised China’s response to the coronavirus, while attacking the United States. “China did a lot of things right at the beginning,” Gates claimed, one of countless pro-China statements made by the billionaire over the years. “Some countries did respond very quickly and get their testing in place and they avoided the incredible economic pain, and it’s sad that even the U.S., that you would have expected to do this well, did it particularly poorly.” Meanwhile, Gates blasted criticisms of Beijing’s response, including the fact that its regime covered up the outbreak, as a “distraction.”

Interestingly, Gates was also a chief financier of the two outfits that provided the projections of mass death that panicked governments around the world into pursuing the policies that Gates was peddling. The first was the Institute for Health Metrics Evaluation at the University of Washington in Seattle, which was launched with a $100 million grant from Gates. The other was the Imperial College of London, which normally specializes in producing climate-change hysteria and sustainable-development propaganda. Both organizations warned of millions of coronavirus deaths, with the Imperial College even projecting a potential 2.2 million deaths just in the United States under one scenario. Both organizations eventually acknowledged that their numbers were wildly out of touch with reality, though policymakers apparently never got the memo. And both organizations were heavily funded by Gates, as were companies all over the world that received investments by Gates to find vaccines for the coronavirus.

Troubling Associations and Connections

Gates’ affinity for totalitarianism is also evidenced by his close ties to globalists and totalitarian leaders.

Indeed, in 2017, he joined the “elite” Chinese Academy of Engineering, an organ of the State Council of the People’s Republic of China headed by Communist Chinese “Premier” Li Kequiang.

Recently, Gates wrote a letter to Chinese dictator Xi Jinping — whose government has a well-documented history of imprisoning and murdering political dissidents, even going so far as to harvest their organs and put them up for sale — about the coronavirus. In the letter, which was reported by Communist Chinese propaganda organs, Gates boasted that his foundation “has committed up to 100 million U.S. dollars in emergency funding, much of which will help China bolster epidemiological research, emergency intervention, and the research and development of drugs, vaccines, and diagnostics,” reported the state-controlled China Global Television Network.

Xi responded to Gates with a fawning letter of his own. “I support your cooperation with relevant Chinese institutions, and look forward to enhanced coordination and concerted efforts in the international community for the sake of [the] health and well-being of all,” he said.

Gates’ choice of associates demonstrates that, to him, the ends justify the means — no matter what — and that any association that can forward the cause is therefore a suitable one. Case in point: Gates’ very close links to Jeffrey Epstein, the infamous child-trafficking pedophile who supposedly killed himself in prison. According to the New York Times, Gates repeatedly visited Epstein’s home and even flew on one of his private jets — one of which was known as the “Lolita Express” owing to the perversion and child rape known to have been ubiquitous on board. To the point, unlike other associates of Epstein, such as Bill Clinton, Gates only began his relationship with Epstein after the pervert was convicted on child-prostitution charges in Florida that forced him to register as a sex offender. Gates’ employees also regularly visited Epstein’s mansion. And Gates’ former science advisor, Boris Nikolic, was listed as a back-up executor for Epstein’s will, according to media reports.

As for globalist associations, while Gates himself is not listed as a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, Microsoft Corporation is listed on its website as a corporate member. In 2003, the Gates Foundation also gave a grant to the group to establish a “Senior Fellowship” in “Global Health and Foreign Policy.” Then-CFR boss Leslie Gelb explained the purpose like this: “Global health issues must be integrated, in study and in practice, into U.S. foreign policymaking. This will be the chief mission of the new Senior Fellow in Global Health Policy Studies.”

It worked. Just a few years later, the Obama administration launched the “Global Health Initiative,” showering billions of U.S. tax dollars on contraception and $63 billion on “improving global health.” Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who said publicly that the CFR tells her “what we should be doing, and how we should think about the future,” was crucial in the scheme, too. If globalist billionaires funding “senior fellowships” at the CFR can hijack U.S. policy so easily — and they can — just imagine how easy it is for them to control bankrupt and corrupt Third World kleptocracies to advance a New World Order.

Gates also wrote an article in the CFR mouthpiece Foreign Affairs promoting “gene editing” technology to engineer organisms, bio-tech developments that will be important in his coronavirus vaccine schemes. Before that, Gates’ wife gave a speech there in 2008 praising the CFR for the “indispensable work you do.” “Your work benefits every American,” she claimed about the organization, which has been instrumental in surrendering U.S. sovereignty and eroding constitutional government. Melinda also said, “I would like to acknowledge a special debt to the Council,” adding that the “success of our efforts” depends on “informed decisions by policymakers” whom the CFR influences.

Gates has also been an attendee at the infamous Bilderberg summits, the semi-secret group of about 120 to 150 extremely influential (mostly) Americans, Canadians, and Europeans that meets once per year behind heavy security. The shadowy group, whose members have admitted to plotting global policy and working toward world government, has started releasing lists of attendees. On at least one occasion, Gates was not listed but was spotted sneaking in by reporters outside. Critics have suggested that American participants — business tycoons, politicians, officials, bankers, and more — ought to be prosecuted under the Logan Act, which prohibits Americans from working on policy with foreign governments without having official authorization to do so.

Another Gates group with less-than-noble aims is known as the “Good Club.” In 2009, the Times of London reported on a secret meeting of top globalist billionaires aimed at reducing the population. The article, headlined “Billionaire club in bid to curb overpopulation,” reported that “some of America’s leading billionaires have met secretly to consider how their wealth could be used to slow the growth of the world’s population.” The summit was “convened on the initiative of Bill Gates,” the report said, and the billionaires “discussed joining forces to overcome political and religious obstacles to change.”

Others in attendance included New World Order architect David Rockefeller, who boasted in his memoirs of “conspiring” “against the interests” of his own country with a “secret cabal” to create “a more integrated global political and economic structure — One World, if you will.” Also among the “Good Club” are Warren Buffett, George Soros, Michael Bloomberg, Ted Turner, and Oprah Winfrey. Aside from their fervent desire to reduce the population, all of the members seem to have an infatuation with Chinese dictator Xi and a vitriolic hatred of President Trump.

Can He and His Cronies Be Stopped?

On the bright side, the public appears to be waking up. All over America, protesters showed up at state capitols to demand a restoration of liberty and an end to the lockdowns. Outrage against Gates and his agenda is boiling over too. A petition on the White House website calling for investigations into the Gates Foundation, “for medical malpractice and crimes against humanity,” gathered 500,000 signatures in just three weeks — more than five times the number of signatories needed to get a formal response from the president.

“As we look at events surrounding the ‘COVID-19 pandemic,’ various questions remain unanswered,” the petition reads. “On Oct. 18th of 2019, only weeks prior to ground zero being declared in Wuhan, China, two major events took place. One is ‘Event 201,’ the other is the ‘Military World Games,’ held in none other than Wuhan. Since then a worldwide push for vaccines & biometric tracking has been initiated. At the forefront of this is Bill Gates, who has publicly stated his interest in ‘reducing population growth’ by 10-15%, by means of vaccination. Gates, UNICEF & WHO have already been credibly accused of intentionally sterilizing Kenyan children through the use of a hidden HCG antigen in tetanus vaccines. Congress & all other governing bodies are derelict in duty until a thorough and public inquiry is complete.”

A thorough congressional investigation of Gates and his foundation, along the lines of the 1952 Select Committee to Investigate Tax-Exempt Foundations and Comparable Organizations, is long overdue. The Senate Environment Committee scratched the surface with its 2014 report on the “Billionaires Club” behind the “green” movement. But the Gates, Rockefeller, Ford, Soros, Bloomberg, and other foundations are clearly up to no good — and they are using their oftentimes ill-gotten wealth to hijack government and undermine freedom.

Even more alarming is that he is not done yet. Not only has he claimed that we cannot get back to normal until there is a new coronavirus vaccine, but he is also assuming that the current coronavirus pandemic will not be the only one. “No one who lives through Pandemic 1 will ever forget it,” he warned. How Americans respond to “Pandemic 2” may well determine whether freedom and self-government survive.
