John Kachelman, Jr.: “Consider yourselves warned, America!” 5 (1)

by John Kachelman, Jr.

You definitely remember where you were on September 11, 2001 when the Twin Towers collapsed. This article examines where you were 19 years later (September 11, 2020).

Click on this countdown that gives the day when our general election will our nation either secure our liberty or the progressives will sacrifice our freedom…

Each morning’s news briefings highlight the steady march of our nation to a decision regarding its destiny. When each day’s developments are added to the existing analysis of information already made public, a serious alarm is sounded. Below are four points that I ask you to consider. These look at the facts and developments that are the vanguard of the November 3, 2020 general election.

In war the key to victory is formulating a strategy that is communicated simply and deployed easily. The messaging of the invading forces must follow the elementary principles of propaganda so the masses will be “softened” and open to the coming conflict (hence historically military operations have dropped brochures and leaflets to persuade the population of the intended conflict to be less resistant to those about to invade and more willing to oppose those targeted for removal).

In war the key to a successful defense is knowledge, understanding and action that disrupts and destroys the enemy’s strategy.

Currently YOU are involved in this strategy. YOU are targeted by a constant pre-emptive propaganda blitz. The below points are not fiction. They are not idle and inconsequential exercises of “war games.” YOU are being manipulated by fear mongering. YOU are being intimidated by deliberate design. YOU are being censored as you utilize social media platforms generating millions of dollars for the purpose of supporting an agenda with the objective of sedition.

Angrily YOU say, “I DO NOT support such!” This is where the analysis becomes interesting. Exposed is the cleverly designed objective to manipulate you so YOU are a “useful idiot” in the strategy destroying your nation. Hence the warning is applicable: “Consider yourselves warned, America.”

Please read all points below.

A fitting introduction is taken from Kelly’s (see below for link) article (first point) published in American greatness: “Their plan, using the intentionally misleading title, ‘Transition Integrity Project,’ outlines alarming and wholly unconstitutional responses to a number of post-election scenarios. Once upon a time, I would’ve read such a far-fetched document through tears of laughter. But considering the desperation and depravity of the people involved, this terrifying roadmap needs to be taken seriously.”

Alarm #1 Sounding The Resistance War Games a Post-Election Civil War by Julie Kelly was published on September 10, 2020 in American Greatness. She bluntly began her article with the phrase I borrowed for this article’s title, “Consider yourselves warned, America.” In this article Kelly presents an exceptionally reasoned article highlighting why the 2020 General Elections are in peril.

Kelly astutely warns, “A vengeful and well-funded coalition of Trump-hating insurrectionists are prepping the battlefield for a post-election civil war, threatening not only to extend the 2020 election into 2021 but to weaponize every tool at their disposal to make sure Joe Biden assumes the presidency even if President Trump legitimately wins.”

The article details how the DEMS/Liberal Left/Progressives have mapped the plan for the compromise, confusion, chaos, and eventual censure of the election’s results.

“Organizers, including Clinton loyalist John Podesta and NeverTrump leader Bill Kristol, have been playing war games for the past few months, plotting how to deploy media, government, and public armies to install Biden no matter what. Their scorched earth strategy rests on two factors: the use of widespread mail-in voting, intended to delay the official result so they can manipulate the outcome while stoking civil unrest until Republicans cry uncle, and the notion that if he loses, President Trump will claim the Democrats stole the election, a legitimate possibility that this plan only serves to further validate.”

The objective that is planned is that a “constitution crisis” will be announced and the chaos will be exploited for a violent overthrow of the elected officials and the placement of those specifically selected to “transform” the USA from its Constitutional Republic into the “whatever-will-evolve” governing structure.

Key to this operation are the mass protests, the continued poisoning of the public’s mind by the evil propaganda spewed by the hateful media, destruction of valid ballots and the harvesting of false ballots. Critical to this operation will be the constant turmoil that is stirred by the DEMS in their attacks on our President and those in his Administration. The “TIP” group at one point envisioned at least 4 million Biden supporters taking to the streets with warnings of “violent skirmishes and vandalism.”

These insurrectionists plan and predict that there will be “a breakdown in the joint session of Congress by getting the House of Representatives to agree to award the presidency to Biden based on the alternative pro-Biden submissions sent by pro-Biden governors.” January 20, 2021 would arrive with no clear winner, raising the specter of military action.

Alarm #2 Sounding

An EXCEPTIONAL communication was received on 10 September 2020…

Friend, Democrats masked and impoverished America to rig an election. COVID-19 has been wildly inflated to scare Americans and increase the people’s reliance upon the government. Every four years, the Democrats have a new ploy to take the focus away from qualified candidates and stir national pandemonium—thinking that this will scare Americans into voting blue. This year the American people are waking up…Nancy Pelosi’s salon blowout trip without a mask made it clear that COVID-19 is not a real threat to the Democrats. Nancy has no problem putting the single mother who owns the salon out of work and shutting down her business in order to achieve a radical Leftist political agenda. The unhinged far-Left has now become the face of the Democrat party. Children are 20x more likely to die in an accident and 10x more likely to die of the flu than to die of COVID-19 and yet they are masking your small children in school — why?! It all goes back to the election. Democrats are scaring voters into fraudulent mail-in voting. I am working against the radical Democrat party to unleash the truth during this election cycle. The Democrats are using COVID-19 and BLM to push their political agenda and once this election cycle ends they will forget all about the pandemic and the BLM movement. Every Democrat city has been run into the ground and is a distressing scene of poverty and high crime rates. Their policies have not helped minorities and they never will. America needs to wake up and realize that the Left has been lying to them year after year for decades.

Alarm #3 Sounding

Here is probably the one point that will ignite your ire toward me more than anything else. We are dealing with facts and not what you feel or how you have been manipulated to ignore the facts. The facts are given by those involved. Right before your eyes are the very words of those subtly seeking to manipulate the election (it appears most are as ancient Judah who had ears but would not hear and eyes but refused to see in Jeremiah 5:21). The evidence has been abundantly presented by investigative reporters. This states the FACTS of the situation and not what you FEEL. This may not be YOUR position but YOU are enabling this ungodly agenda to have fuel.

Social Media platforms continue to be used to manipulate the population. A direct threat of murder to those who disagree politically was posted on Twitter. FaceBook is extensively involved in insidious efforts to subvert and destroy our Republic. Yes, there is MUCH about FB that is commendable BUT an evil mission is deliberately embedded. An entire gallon of water can have pure water but a small drop of poison proves fatal to the entire volume!

For years professional security sources have urged people to avoid these platforms. Those posting reveal significant information on every aspect of their lives. The posts are a treasure trove for the unfriendlies. Your name, address, activities, family members, finances, security, EVERYTHING about your life that you consider valuable is exposed. And if not exposed by YOU personally, it is exposed by those linked to you!

Indeed, it is a “social disease” and everyone in contact with you is a point of compromise for your security and the security of your entire family! Photos are rich sources of data mining about your personal security. And the amazing fact is that you eagerly and willingly compromise the security of yourself, your family, your associates! You have willingly provided security details that betray the safety and well-being of your family! This is NOT my personal bias but the repeated warnings of professional security analysts.

By participating in these social media platforms, you provide millions of dollars in revenue that is used to support the sedition undermining our nation.

By participating in these social media platforms, you volunteer to place yourself under the censorship of those dedicated to anarchy. You agree to allow the “censors” to decide what can be used.

This is not my personal opinion. Look at two points brought to light within the past few days…

First, FB has committed to a “censorship” to make sure that which they determine as “hate-speak” is prevented from being published. This hate-speak includes any overtly positive nationalism, “radical” religious tenets (identified as “Christianity”), and political “untruths.” This sounds good. Who would object to a filter that removes hate, lies and division? But YOU are being played! Who are those selected to compromise the FB censorship committee? “18 out of 20 members on Facebook’s fact-checking board have ties to George Soros.”
https://gellerreport.com/2020/09/18-out-of-20-members-on-facebooks-fact-checking-board-have-ties-to-george-soros.html/ 

Second, multiple sources have documented how FB has a subtle campaign to “soften” the American population to accept a prolonged, if not an indefinite, electoral decision. YOU are being played to start thinking that the final results should be allowed weeks or months for certification. YOU are being played to accept the lie that the initial results will be wrong and that Trump is “stealing” the election.

In an incredible interview Mark Zuckerberg tells you this happening and he lays the battle plan out right before your eyes. “Amid election security concerns, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg attempted to normalize the possibility of a delayed outcome of the upcoming presidential election were to occur. This despite the fact that he is not an elected official and holds no government position. ‘One of the things that I think we and other media need to start doing is preparing the American people that there’s nothing illegitimate about this election taking additional days or even weeks to make sure that all of the votes are counted,’ Zuckerberg told “Axios on HBO.” Did you understand the point—YOU are being “normalized”!

FB’s Zuckerberg continued, “In fact, that may be important to make sure that this is an important, legitimate, and fair election.” Administrators will market messaging around this premise “just to make sure people know that’s normal.”

You will probably fuss and cuss me for the above. But you cannot ignore for long the battle plan charted by those deliberately using you. FB, Twitter and other social media platforms pander to the desire of gossip. Remove the “idle talk” and what do you have? You say you do not support such, but by your logging-on and your clicks, you are involved. The damage done to the American culture, civility and conscience by these social network platforms cannot be undone. These allow the most ungodly conversations and communicates acceptance of the greatest immoralities.

These actions are decimating our nation. You may “hide” such comments and such people BUT your continued log-ons and clicks fund and fuel the mechanism that has brought about the current crisis in our nation. You may “hide” the “unwanteds” on your FB page but you cannot hide your support for this evilly designed program.

Think on this—“Aiding and abetting a crime” is a legal doctrine related to the guilt of someone who aids or abets (encourage; support; give material assistance; to join not necessarily in person) in the commission of a crime. It exists in a number of different countries and generally allows a court to pronounce someone guilty for aiding and abetting in a crime even if they are not the principal offender. In war such is a crime deserving death.

Alarm #4 Sounding

Our national security is currently threatened by different actions. We have been compromised (as Owens ably notes above) by the fear mongers of the “scamdemic.” These are hypocritically “protecting your freedom and health” while subtly restricting your personal freedoms and limiting your individual choices! Adding further chaos is the racial unrest that erupted by the design of the BLM/ANTIFA/DEMS/Liberals/Progressives. Everything that clashes with the Progressive Dem agenda is labeled “racist.” BUT the Progressives are the biggest racists in our culture. They accuse the Christians of being “fascists” but the protestors epitomize fascism! Consider this maneuver by the University of Michigan (Tuesday September 8, 2020):

https://archive.is/qkIzq “The University of Michigan-Dearborn hosted racially segregated events on Tuesday, one for ‘Non-POC,’ and the other for ‘BIPOC’ (Black, Indigenous, and People Of Color) students. During the two racially segregated ‘cafes,’ the groups were encouraged to ‘discuss their experience as students on campus.’

“‘The Non-POC (People Of Color) Cafe is a space for students that do not identify as persons of color to gather and to discuss their experience as students on campus and as non-POC in the world,’ read the event description on the university’s website. Although the university has since pulled the relevant pages off their website, archives of the information pages exist.

“‘Feel free to drop in and discuss your experiences as non-persons of color and hopefully brainstorm solutions to common issues within the non-POC community,’ added the description.”

THIS IS WHERE YOU WERE ON SEPTEMBER 11, 2020…

Your nation is NOT in an enviable position. Your nation is precariously perched on a precipice. Have you seriously considered that YOU are unwittingly contributing to this decline? I do not want to hear you protest about the censorship, decline and inevitable criminality of practicing the Christian religion if you sit idly while your country is hijacked and you simply proceed “aiding and abetting” this calamity.

In the 1930’s Germany was being manipulated by the Fascist National Socialist politicians. Their takeover of the German nation was incremental, almost imperceptible. Little-by-little Germany was infected by a malignancy that eventually led to multiple millions dying. An early supporter of the National Socialist was Martin Niemöller. He embraced the politics and was played by the manipulators. Too late he realized his mistake and decided not to cooperate with the manipulators. He left behind this confession: “First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.” 

Ancient Judah was precariously perched on the precipice of national existence. God revealed the truth and the machinations of the Evil destroying the nation. The message sent to the nation was simple, “Consider yourselves warned, Judah!”

Historically there is not an encouraging ending to such a national warning. What did Judah do when warned that she was about to be removed? There was an element within the national leaders who refused to listen and the general population followed this “mainstream” urging. The tragedy of the nation’s demise and erasure of existence was announced, “the prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests rule on their own authority; and My people love it so! But what will you do at the end of it?” (Jeremiah 5:31).

Let this calamitous refrain play over and over in your mind; let it prick your conscience, “My people love it so! But what will you do at the end of it?”

This is where YOU were on September 11, 2020…“But what will you do at the end” of the election? Where will YOU be November 4, 2020?

Bill Lockwood: Judicial Supremacy? 4 (1)

by Bill Lockwood

Thomas Jefferson warned us that the Supreme Court itself had the potential to distort the original intent of the Founders by using “Judicial Review.” He saw that the Court might begin creating law instead of merely interpreting the laws passed by the legislature and applying them in the cases that came before it. Late in life he wrote:

It has long, however, been my opinion, and I have never shrunk from its expression … that the germ of dissolution of our federal government is in the constitution of the federal judiciary; an irresponsible body, (for impeachment is scarcely a scare-crow) working like gravity by night and by day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow, and advancing its noiseless step like a thief, over the field of jurisdiction, until all shall be usurped from the States, and the government of all be consolidated into one. To this I am opposed; because, when all government, domestic and foreign, in little as in great things, shall be drawn to Washington as the center of all power, it will render powerless the checks provided of one government on another, and will become as venal and oppressive as the government from which we separated.

While there are certainly other factors involved in America’s decline from its original constitutional model, Jefferson’s admonition strikes at the heart of the issues involved today.

With the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsberg, and President Trump’s constitutional role in filling that vacancy, the war that is shaping up in Washington, D.C. is ominous. Showing complete disdain for our Constitution, the frenzied left is promising such outlandish measures as bringing impeachment charges against our president solely for the purpose of hindering him from doing his Constitutional duty.

Let’s look, however, behind the mayhem to see the foundational issues involved.

Constitutional Nonsense

One rude and reckless blogger posted this on Facebook. “With justice Ginsberg passing today, all my female and minority friends better vote like your life depends upon it … these … Republicans are going to have you barefoot and in the kitchen with zero rights over your genitals and put minorities ‘back in their place’ in society …!!”

It is difficult to imagine a more frantic and ignorant statement than this. But it does highlight some major erroneous thought processes that live on the socialist left. Before noting them it is worth mentioning that the comment above focuses upon the issue of abortion. That is noteworthy because it is the lefties and socialists in America who like to say, “You conservatives are a ONE ISSUE group of people—always mentioning abortion!” In point of fact, that is inaccurate—however, surrounding the war pertaining to Ginsberg’s replacement, just who is riveting attention to one single issue? The Liberal Left.

Judicial Supremacy

Judicial Supremacy is a “radical over-extension”, indeed, perversion – “of the legitimate doctrines of ‘judicial review and stare decisis (‘to stand by matters that have been settled’). In brief, the modern doctrine of “judicial supremacy” is as follows: (1) That the Supreme Court has the authority to construe the Constitution in issues that come before the Court and that that meaning of the Constitution, instead of applying only against the parties that come before the Court, applies against everyone in the country situated in similar circumstances.

(2) That an opinion of the Supreme Court can only be modified or cancelled by a later opinion of the Supreme Court or by a formal amendment to the Constitution.

(3) Nothing can be done to any justice of the Court as a consequence of any opinion handed down, no matter how fraudulent or willfully false it may be.

(4) Most importantly: Judicial Supremacy assumes that the meaning of the Constitution’s provisions are: (i) largely unknown and even unknowable, unless that provision becomes illuminated by the Supreme Court itself; (ii) politically plastic, in that the meaning of those provisions can, and even should, change from time to time as the Supreme Court deems advisable.

What Shall We Say to These Things?

Like liberal views of the Bible, so these views of the Constitution and of the role of the Supreme Court land us in nothing less than an oligarchy whereby we are ruled by a board of nine judges—not the Constitution itself. And in case of a 5-4 decision by the Court, the fate of the nation can be decided by only one single judge. Little wonder therefore, that the Political War of 2020 is heightening.

First, the Constitution had a Definite Meaning Before the Supreme Court was Formed. The Constitution and all of its provisions were well known by the people much before the Supreme Court was formed. The Constitution was ratified in 1788 and the Bill of Rights in 1791. However, the Supreme Court was not formed until 1789 and the first cases reached it in August of 1791. In other words, the Supreme Court did not even exist when the Constitution was ratified. Are we to believe that it was passed and ratified by “We the People” but that they had no idea as to its meaning until nine black-robed justices began handing down decisions?

Further, public officeholders have been “bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support the Constitution” and the president to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution”—no person could honestly have taken this oath before the formation and decisions of the Supreme Court if “Judicial Supremacy” be true.

Second, Judicial Supremacy is Self-Contradictory. Article 3 of the Constitution covers the Judicial Branch. “The judicial power of the United States shall be vested in one supreme court, and in such inferior courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish.” Section 2 describes the cases that come before the Supreme Court. Those who favor the modern doctrine of “Judicial Supremacy” point to this Section to establish it. But that presupposes that we are able to comprehend the meaning of its provisions without Supreme Court clarification.

This is the same fundamental contradiction made by the Roman Church when seeking to establish papal supremacy. Catholic defenders run to Matthew 16:16-18 in an effort to establish the doctrine in the minds of doubters. However, this maneuver assumes that one may read and understand the text without papal assistance. In point of fact, the text actually teaches no such thing as papal supremacy any more than Article 3 gives foundation for Judicial Supremacy.

Third, the Constitution is Self-Defining. One is able to read and understand the meaning of the text without assistance from an “inspired” Court of Nine. If there are challenges to interpretation, one need only read The Federalist Papers, the commentary composed by those who actually wrote the Constitution, to determine its meaning. As a matter of fact, it was upon this basis, by the notes put together in articles by John Jay, James Madison, and Alexander Hamilton, that the colonies learned and accepted the Constitution to begin with.

There is a frenzy of activity surrounding the replacement of Ruth Bader Ginsberg, but the real reason the Democrat/Socialists of America are waging war is found in the following statement from the Tenth Amendment Center. “Progressives want a living, breathing Constitution because they want to mold society into their own image. They crave power. Originalism restrains power.” Without rule of law, government becomes arbitrary and despotic. Exactly where the Socialists will take us.

 

 

 

Mike Maharrey: While You Were Obsessing Over Impeachment 0 (0)

by Mike Maharrey

Well, they did it!

The House impeachment hearings were little more than political theater — a partisan fistfight with the majority party coming out the “winner.” In the process, it created the illusion of deep division and disagreement. Devoted Democrats and Republicans are both convinced that their team is fighting for their interests against a determined foe on the other side of the aisle.

But while everybody obsessed over the political theater playing out on CNN, Fox News and MSNBC, they completely missed the sideshow that could actually impact their lives. Even as Democrats and Republicans engaged in a contentious public spectacle in the media spotlight, they worked in concert behind the scenes to steal your liberty and your wealth.

While you argued over the gory details of impeachment with your friends on Facebook, Congress passed the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act. The nearly 3,500-page bill authorizes $738 billion in defense spending in Fiscal Year 2020. It creates a “Space Force,” so the U.S. can expand its empire into the cosmos. And Congress rejected a provision that would have made it just slightly harder for the president to unilaterally send American troops into combat. In other words, Congress agreed that it would not bother to do its job and declare war before sending the U.S. military to conduct offensive combat operations as required by the Constitution. It will continue to let the president make that call on his own. You know – the president the House just impeached.

Even worse, the current iteration of the NDAA extended provisions written into the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act that effectively authorize government kidnapping. The vaguely worded sections purport to authorize the arrest and “indefinite detention” of anybody the president decides might be associated with “terrorism” and subject them to the law of war. In effect, the government can deem you a terrorist and lock you away without due process. Government kidnapping may sound like hyperbole, but that’s exactly what the NDAA authorizes in effect.

Speaking of war, while all eyes were glued to the three-ring circus in D.C., the Washington Post released documents revealing that the U.S. government has been lying to us about the war in Afghanistan for decades.

“A confidential trove of government documents obtained by The Washington Post reveals that senior U.S. officials failed to tell the truth about the war in Afghanistan throughout the 18-year campaign, making rosy pronouncements they knew to be false and hiding unmistakable evidence the war had become unwinnable.”

As one three-star general put it, “What are we trying to do here? We didn’t have the foggiest notion of what we were undertaking. If the American people knew the magnitude of this dysfunction .?.?. 2,400 lives lost.”

This seems, maybe, just a tiny bit, significant. But the news barely saw the light of day. It was completely buried under an avalanche of impeachment reporting.

The sad truth is that these papers that have been mostly ignored provide legitimate grounds for impeachment – not just of Donald Trump, but Barack Obama and George W. Bush to boot. But when it comes to war, Congress maintains a bipartisan consensus supporting the endless, unconstitutional foreign interventions and the presidents who run them. And the media is complicit, focusing on the fake wrestling matches on Capitol Hill instead of reporting on real wars

And while we’re on the subject of bipartisan consensus, let me remind you that Congress reauthorized sections of the Patriot Act in the latest stopgap spending bill. This means the federal government will be able to continue to spy on you without a warrant and in complete disregard of the Fourth Amendment. Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) predicted it would happen.

Today, while everyone is distracted by the impeachment drama, Congress will vote to extend warrantless data collection provisions of the #PatriotAct, by hiding this language on page 25 of the Continuing Resolution (CR) that temporarily funds the government. To sneak this through, Congress will first vote to suspend the rule which otherwise gives us (and the people) 72 hours to consider a bill. The scam here is that Democrats are alleging abuse of Presidential power, while simultaneously reauthorizing warrantless power to spy on citizens that no President should have… in a bill that continues to fund EVERYTHING the President does… and waiving their own rules to do it. I predict Democrats will vote on a party line to suspend the 72 hour rule. But after the rule is suspended, I suspect many Republicans will join most Democrats to pass the CR with the Patriot Act extension embedded in it.

And indeed they did.

And finally, while Congress-critters battled it out on the House floor, behind the scenes, congressional leaders worked with the Trump administration to hammer out a $1.4 trillion spending agreement. According to an Associated Press report, the deal “fills in the details of a bipartisan framework from July that delivered about $100 billion in agency spending increases over the coming two years instead of automatic spending cuts that would have sharply slashed both the Pentagon and domestic agencies.”

So, let’s review. While America was mesmerized by the pro-wrestling event on Capitol Hill, Congress agreed to maintain the government’s “authority” to kidnap you, to keep spying on you without a warrant, to continue unconstitutional wars, and to spend you deeper into debt.

Political theater makes for splashy headlines and heated debates, but it really has very little impact on your life. The political class, including the mainstream media, would prefer you pay attention to the fluff, not to the things that really matter. Perhaps instead of obsessing over impeachment or the latest debate over a Trump tweet, you would be better served to pay attention to what they don’t want you to pay attention to.

Bill Lockwood: Freedom v. Force 0 (0)

by Bill Lockwood

Freedom irritates the left. Not their own freedom—but yours. Democrats live with a hatred; a despising of the very principle of liberty. This is the essential difference between the left and the right—not merely how spend money and upon what—but whether or not to curtail your freedom.

Consider free speech. The free and open exchange of ideas has been the hallmark of American society for over two centuries. The First Amendment has served as a prohibition against the Federal Government from managing any kind of speech. Alarmingly, however, more than one-half of Americans today favor a “re-writing” of the First Amendment whereby “hate speech” would be illegal. The survey was taken by the nonpartisan Campaign for Free Speech (CFS).

As everyone knows, the determination of what constitutes “hate speech” is the crux. Who will determine what type of speech is hateful enough to be illegal? (see First Liberty Institute article, 11-15-19).

College campuses lead the nation in showing contempt for free speech. Most college students, according to surveys, want restrictions on what they call “offensive” speech. Marxist professors have instilled a pure hatred for free speech in the student bodies. Witness the hostile reception conservative speakers have had at various Universities around the country.

Even the liberal American Bar Association (ABA) documents in a recent article the silencing of various speakers at college campuses. The authors, Stephen J. Wermiel & Josh Blackman, try to explain that it comes from “both sides”, left and right, but conclude that the “incidents” of disruption to speakers on the liberal side are “less common.” Indeed! And it is more than a stretch to say that “hecklers” wearing “Make America Great Again” hats equate with the violence of shutting down speakers and forcing college campuses to withdraw conservative invitations to speak. Silencing by force is the leftist method.

Force has been used so much by the left that some Republican-led state legislatures have felt the need to impose policies on their state university campuses to allow free speech.

Under the rubric of “hate speech” the big tech giants Facebook and YouTube have already shut down Alex Jones’ voice on InfoWars.  Some Christian voices, like Julio Severo, are put in “Facebook jail” for posting Bible verses such as about homosexuality. Google suppressed Prager University and Twitter temporarily banned Candace Owens. So prevalent has this forcible silencing of speech been on the left that Bill Maher was compelled to ask, “If you’re a liberal, you’re supposed to be for free speech. That’s free speech for the speech that you hate.”

Consider Climate Change. The Paris Climate Accord from which Trump withdrew in 2017 is all about force. Those who preach the Green Gospel of saving the planet cannot garner enough support for their message by normal debate and means of persuasion. Therefore, these globalists wish to sign American taxpayers on to a globalist “Carbon Pricing Panel” whereby the dictators of the United Nations will force reparations from the United States to pay for our environmental sins. These payments will be distributed to Third World and developing nations.

All of us have pulpits. Some of us preach the gospel of Christ and by reasons addressed to the mind ask worshippers to contribute in collection trays. Leftists and socialists of the Democrat Party cannot garner enough support for their doomsday message that the Sky is Falling, consequently they must save us all—by forcing us to pay contributions to their collection baskets. They cannot rely on freedom or the free-flow of ideas, so proponents of the Green Gospel use force.

Fred Singer, prominent scientist at the Heartland summit, a University of Virginia environmental science Professor Emeritus, and founder of the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change, observed, “This is about money and power. Science plays a small role, and mostly it’s being misused….It’s a matter of really trying to control things.”

Consider attacks on private property. So essential is this to freedom that John Adams commented that this was the single foundation stone undergirding all human freedom and liberty. “Property must be secured or liberty cannot exist.”

The left knows this as well. The all-out attack on private property by the program Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH), fostered by the United Nations’ Sustainable Development program and flourishing under HUD funding, has become common-place in American cities.

Big government planners do not like that you have the “freedom of association.” Liberty to live where you like and with those whom you are most comfortable is anathema. We must pare down your liberty branches! Cities are bribed with the endless access to federal money to “re-distribute” the racial mixes of their populations. Cities such as Baltimore, MD are placing minority families in white suburbia. No freedom here.

Liberal bastion Minneapolis, Minnesota became the first city to end single-family zoning. The Mayor of the city called such housing a mark of racism and “self-segregation” that must be halted at once. The white population is in his cross-hairs. Other cities are beginning to follow suit. 1

There are also a large number of organizations, such as Center for Study of Social Policy, Program for Environmental and Regional Equity (PERE); Center for American Progress (CAP); W. Kellogg Foundation, Annie E. Casey Foundation, and others, that are in the business of bribing cities with large amounts of George Soros money to forcibly re-zone various neighborhoods or re-draw school boundaries to dismantle schools that have “too large a white or Asian population.” 2

Another group, PolicyLink, a radical activist group, pushes policies such as “parks equity” which states that lack of access to city parks are partly responsible for “racial performance gaps” in school and on the job. The manifesto therefore is for middle-class tax-payers, once again by force, to begin funding more parks in slum areas of the country.

The common denominator in all of this is lack of freedom. Force replaces it. This is the tool of the left.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Takeaway

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

Bill Lockwood: Obama’s War Against Freedom of Speech 0 (0)

Internet Giveaway: Obama’s War Against Freedom of Speech-“Hate,” like beauty, is the eye of the beholder. “

by Bill Lockwood

The danger is real. The threat is imminent. Under Barack Obama’s direction the United States is set to give up control of the internet to a world body controlled by other socialists such as himself. Obama’s Marxism is not the armchair sort where he simply cogitates about philosophies of life while puffing on a pipe. “Street-organizing” is called such for a reason.

As these lines are being composed Barack Obama, as has become his modus operandi, via the back door, is seeking to curtail freedom of speech. His proposal is to end the U.S. government’s oversight of the internet domain name system by turning it over to a world body called ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) composed of 162 nations. These nations, composed of dictatorships of the communist or Islamic brands, such as China or Iran, will certainly curtail the precious freedoms long-cherished by Americans.

The Left argues that this “danger” outlined above is overblown. No entity would ever “censor” the internet, we are assured by the globalists. As Senator Ted Cruz observed on the floor of Congress recently, “A representative of Iran is already on record stating, ‘we should not take it [for] granted that jurisdiction is already agreed to be totally based on U.S. law.’” Unbelievable. More unbelievable is the fact that this does not cause Barack Obama to even pause in his internet giveaway. He pushes it onto the fast track.

Further, as Cruz pointed out to the Senate, leading technology companies in the United States have already agreed with the European Union to remove ‘hate speech’ from their online platforms. Giant U.S. companies  are currently in the process of “censoring speech” that is deemed unacceptable. “Hate,” like beauty, is the eye of the beholder. Those who have Twitter or Facebook accounts know that this is already occurring.

Freedom of Speech

America has had a long history of cherishing the precious freedom of speech, the free flow and exchange of ideas. Our framers of government fought long and hard that they and we might enjoy this God-given freedom, which had been stifled throughout the governments of history.

Probably the most significant figure of the Founding period in America is Thomas Jefferson. As were all of those remarkable statesmen called Founding Fathers, Jefferson was a fierce lover of freedom. At his First Inaugural Address (1801) the Sage of Monticello admonished future generations, in memorable phraseology, to carefully guard the Freedom of Speech.

The diffusion of information and arraignment of all abuses at the bar of the public reason; freedom of religion; freedom of the press, and freedom of person under the protection of the habeas corpus, and trial by juries impartially selected. These principles form the bright constellation which has gone before us and guided our steps through an age of revolution and reformation.”

The wisdom of our sages and blood of our heroes have been devoted to their attainment. They should be the creed of our political faith, the text of civic instruction, the touchstone by which to try the services of those we trust; and should we wander from them in moments of error or of alarm, let us hasten to retrace our steps and to regain the road which alone leads to peace, liberty, and safety.”

Elsewhere Jefferson rightly connected the freedom of speech with religion. “…Insomuch that whatever violates either throws down the sanctuary which covers the others” (Kentucky Resolutions, 1798).

Benjamin Franklin warned: “Freedom of speech is a principal pillar of a free government; when this support is taken away, the constitution of a free society is dissolved, and tyranny is erected on its ruins. Republics and limited monarchies derive their strength and vigor from a popular examination into the action of the magistrates.”

Is it the case that this ‘principal pillar of free government’ is near evaporation? Will tyranny indeed be erected on its ruins? Marxist Obama does not cherish this freedom; the liberal establishment does not desire a free flow of ideas. Placing the forum of the internet into globalist hands assures us that tyranny is in the offing.
