Coca-Cola Hosts Earth Day Event with D.C. Councilman who Claimed Jews Control the Weather

By Jihad Watch

The big corporations, including but by no means limited to Coca-Cola, believe they can partner with any Leftist, no matter how hate-filled, crazy or extreme, and there will be no consequences: no boycott, no adverse publicity. They wouldn’t dream, however, of partnering with any open American patriot, for then they know the charges of “racism” and boycotts would come from Left-fascists. This perception must change. Geico dropping Linda Sarsour was a good start, but why was she invited in the first place?

Meanwhile, events such as this one legitimize and mainstream White’s hateful views, while the fact that it would be inconceivable for Coke to partner with someone who spoke out for traditional values contributes to the marginalization of those values.

Coca-Cola Hosts Earth Day Event With Democrat Who Says Jews Control Weather

by Alana Goodman, Washington Free Beacon, April 20, 2022:

Coca-Cola Consolidated and Giant Food held an Earth Day environmental cleanup event with a Democratic Washington, D.C., councilman who has accused Jews of controlling the climate.

Ward 8 councilman Trayon White Sr., who is challenging incumbent mayor Muriel Bowser in the Democratic mayoral primary, teamed up with the Coke-bottling company and grocery chain last week to host the cleanup day for Oxon Run, a stream located in White’s ward.

White’s fraught relationship with the Jewish community dates back to at least 2018, when he claimed that wealthy Jews used “climate manipulation” to cause bad weather in D.C. and donated $500 in community funds to sponsor a conference by infamous Jew-hater Louis Farrakhan….

White drew controversy in 2018 for his statements about the Rothschilds, a wealthy Jewish family that has been the subject of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories for more than 200 years.

“Man, it just started snowing out of nowhere this morning, man. Y’all better pay attention to this climate control, man, this climate manipulation,” White said in a video he posted on Facebook in 2018. “And D.C. keep talking about, ‘We a resilient city,’ and that’s a model based off the Rothschilds controlling the climate to create natural disasters they can pay for to own the cities, man. Be careful.”

While attending a city council breakfast, White also claimed that the Rothschilds “pretty much control the federal government” and “control the World Bank, as we all know.”

After public backlash, White apologized for the remarks and agreed to attend a tour of the Holocaust Museum. But many Jewish community leaders questioned his sincerity after he walked out of the tour halfway through….

Leadership in a time of crisis: Israel and America thumbnail

Leadership in a time of crisis: Israel and America

By Howard Rotberg

Israel is facing some potentially catastrophic challenges that require supporters of Israel to speak out as never before in support of the Jewish State. Its government is in crisis as well.

NOTE: This is part one of a two-part series, with the second one being entitled On Leaders and War: Ideological Transformation in the West After Ukraine.

Perhaps we have all been so focused on Covid 19 and then on the Russian war against Ukraine, that we have given insufficient attention to other important geopolitical events affecting America and Israel. Surely, the Western world is in a crisis and in times of crisis, good leadership is more important than ever.

One aspect of the crisis is inattention to critical matters. As Covid wanes, hopefully, there is the possibility that on an individual level we shall get preoccupied with all the activities we have missed during the lockdowns – attending movies and concerts, synagogue and public lectures, sporting events, and education. In the case of Israel, we see that Israel is facing some potentially catastrophic challenges that require supporters of Israel to speak out as never before in support of the Jewish State.

The seven most important problems facing Israel:

1. The Iran nuclear deal, otherwise known as the JCPOA-2, in which the major world powers believe it is appropriate that the world’s worst rogue state – that pledges destruction of Israel (and America) – should be awarded sanctions relief and enough money that it can finance more terrorism, even a war, against Israel. And how sad that the world powers think that it is not an issue of whether Iran gets nuclear weapons but when. It is sad that what appears to be delaying the deal is not the needed moral vision of America, but a Russian demand that its trade with Iran be exempted from sanctions.

2. The United Nations which seems to consider its main duty as criticizing every action by Israel to protect its rights under international law dating back to the San Remo declaration, has now gone even further than usual – its creation of an open-ended and permanent international investigation into Israel’s treatment of Palestinians, after Israel’s 11-day self-defense to Hamas firing missiles. The fraudulently named UN Human Rights Council voted to create the “Commission of Inquiry”investigation after the UN rights chief said Israeli forces may have committed war crimes. The resolution called for the creation of a permanent “Commission of Inquiry” to monitor and report on rights violations in Israel, the Gaza Strip and the ‘West Bank’. It would be the first such commission of inquiry with an “ongoing” mandate.

Israel’s representative at the meeting said the commission was “yet another example of a grossly discriminatory and fraudulent body that this distinguished forum should be working to abolish.”

I agree with calling the commission “fraudulent” but not with terming the Human Rights Council a “distinguished forum”. The Israeli representative said experts involved in the commission had made statements revealing a bias against Israel, and that the commission “pre-assumes Israeli violations of international law rather than presuming innocence as is required.” Israel’s UN envoy Gilad Erdan said in a statement: “The UN fell to a new low and approved a budget for a despicable and biased commission that has no right to exist.” He said the commission of inquiry ignores Hamas war crimes, including the 4,000 rockets fired at Israeli civilians.

Besides the Israel-Hamas conflict, the commission is also to investigate “all underlying root causes of recurrent tensions, instability, and protraction of conflict” including discrimination and repression.

The commission will no doubt ignore that the 11-day war last May, began with Hamas firing rockets at Jerusalem, followed by towns in south of Israel and the Tel Aviv area. Israeli airstrikes in response against targets in the Strip killed some 250 people, including minors, according to the Hamas-run Health Ministry, which does not differentiate between terror group members and civilians. Twelve people were killed in Israel, all but one of them civilians, including a 5-year-old boy and a 16-year-old girl. Israel has said the majority of those killed were terror operatives and insists it did everything to avoid civilian casualties while fighting armed groups deliberately embedded in populated areas.

3. The increasing anti-Israelism of the Biden administration, and its new ambassador to Israel, Thomas Nides. In fact, I believe that Nides’ opinions are so anti-Israel that his appointment should be viewed as a hostile act. Nides, a banker and former deputy Secretary of State under Obama, is Jewish but neither his wife nor children are. His wife will not join him in Israel as she is a Vice-President of CNN, hardly a pro-Israel media.

His anti-Israelism is most apparent when he is in the presence of others who he perceives correctly to be anti-Israel. Daniel Greenfield, writing in INN and also JNS, notes that Nides was featured in a webinar with the anti-Israel group, Americans for Peace Now, whose CEO has described Israel as an “oppressive regime”.

Greenfield asserts that Nides’s main qualification for the job had been yelling “You don’t want to f***ing defund UNESCO” at a former Israeli ambassador. He had also vocally opposed efforts to defund UNRWA and stop subsidizing the terror refugee industry. Early on, Nides announced that he wanted to open an occupation (!) consulate to the terrorists in Jerusalem, over the opposition of the Israeli government, and that he would not visit those parts of Israel wrongly described as “settlements” – because they’re claimed by Islamic terrorists. Many American Jews who made Aliyah live in Judea and Samari and you can imagine how they and their families who may still reside in America feel about the ambassador shunning them.

At the infamous APN webinar, Nides felt he was with the like-minded. APN opposes Jews living in Jerusalem, opposes anti-BDS legislation and opposes Jews defending themselves against Islamic terrorism. And so, Nides’ true feelings were expressed this way: “You have a clear agenda. I think your agenda is where my heart is,” Nides told APN.

Nides also told the webinar that he and Biden wanted to divide Jerusalem and that “my job is to knock down things that make that possibility impossible.” He also admitted that “the idea of settlement growth … infuriates me”. Nides wants to reverse Israel’s success in the 1967 war – he says that his priority is fighting to prevent Jews from living in those parts of Jerusalem that had been captured by invading Muslim armies in 1948 and liberated from their occupiers in 1967 during the Six-Day War.

“We can’t have the Israelis doing settlement growth, both in East Jerusalem or the West Bank.”

Finally, we note that rather than vocally condemning the PLO for subsidizing the murder of Americans and Jews, as they pay pensions to family members of dead terrorists, Nides only appears to be concerned that the terror payments were an “excuse” for Jewish “haters” to cut off funding to the terrorists.

Nides’ positions encourage more Israel hatred among American Jews and non-Jews.

4. The virtue signaling of admitting immigrants to Israel, who are Ukrainian non-Jews who practice Christianity (to a greater extent than most Christian countries) thus jeopardizing the role of Israel as a Jewish state.

5. The continuation in the world’s universities of hate speech and fraudulent antisemitic nonsense such as the so-called Israel Apartheid Week.

6.The practice by Biden of overturning almost everything good, domestically or in foreign policy, done by President Trump. If that practice extends to Trump’s Abraham Accords, this might destroy the best plan for Middle East peace in history. The adoption of the Oslo Accord, after the Six Day War, set Israel on a path that resulted in terrorism and naivete that a terrorist organization seeking ejection of Jews from all of our historic homeland could be a partner in a so-called “two-state” solution.

7. Perhaps most serious of all the problems facing Israel is the fading loyalty of its Arab Muslim citizens to the sovereignty and peacefulness of the nation of Israel. Israel is now facing a growing sector of people who not only do not contribute to the defense of Israel but are involved in terrorism and other violence in the “mixed” cities like Lod, Ramle, Jaffa, and Nazareth.

In recent days, at the end of March and the beginning of April, terrorist murders of Jewish Israelis occured in Hadera, Gush Etzion, and Bnai Brak. But the turning point happened some ten months’ earlier, during Operation Guardian of the Walls.:

On May 10, 2021, Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), two Gaza-based Palestinian U.S.-designated terrorist organizations, with the excuse that they were “defending Al-Aqsa,” and citing a dispute over some disputed ownership of homes in East Jerusalem (where the courts ruled in favor of Jewish ownership, began launching rockets and missiles into Israel. For eleven days, over 4,300 rockets and missiles were fired from Gaza towards Israeli civilian centers, throughout the south and central parts of the country, including Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. Millions of Israelis were forced to take cover in bomb shelters. This was especially true in the south, including in cities such as Ashkelon, Ashdod and Beer Sheva, which were severely impacted by the rocket attacks.

In response, the Israeli military launched what it called “Operation Guardian of the Walls” targeting Hamas and PIJ sites and operatives throughout Gaza via airstrikes and artillery fire.

The shocking development was that during this war against Israel by Hamas, there was an alarming outbreak of Arab violence in a number of Israeli cities which have significant populations of both Jewish and Arab citizens. Arabs engaged in arson, looting and rioting. Jewish and Arab-owned businesses and vehicles were targeted and damaged. Synagogues came under attack and were burned and vandalized as well. There were also a number of incidents in which individuals were targeted.

These seven most important problems require great leadership and great policies to meet and overcome them. How are both America and Israel and their leaders poised to meet them?

The one overriding concern that I have in the face of such issues is that Israel and America are currently led by individuals who have so little support, in recent polls, that they may now realize that they have little chance of maintaining their governance in future elections. Thus, they may not govern with the usual moderation that is shown by leaders trying to maintain popular support from a large moderate majority; in fact, if such leaders face almost certain defeat in the next election, they may embrace policies espoused by the most radical of their electoral base.

Some six months since the formation of an eight-party ruling coalition led by Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, and containing everything from Leftists to an Arab party, a poll published by Channel 12 news in December showed that the current government is largely unpopular.

But the survey also showed that new elections would do little except continue the parliamentary deadlock that plagued Israel for some two years and four elections.

The poll showed that nearly twice as many Israelis prefer opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu as prime minister to Bennett or Alternate Prime Minister Yair Lapid.

When asked what government they preferred, 43% said they preferred the previous government led by Netanyahu, while 36% preferred the current government led by Bennett and Lapid. Others had no clear answer.

But Netanyahu still lacked a viable path to forming a government if elections were held today, with only 57 seats to his bloc of right-wing and religious parties. Meanwhile the current coalition would lose four seats, sitting at 57 as well.

The Joint List, a smaller coalition of four predominantly Arab parties, would hold the other six.

A poll in February by Direct Polls showed that if elections were held then, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s Yamina party would barely be able to cross the electoral threshold.

The 2021 Israeli legislative election saw Bennett’s Yamina party secure six seats. He partnered with Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid, who won 17 seats, to oust them-PM Benjamin Netanyahu. While Likud had won 30 mandates in the election – and was the winning party in the three election campaigns that preceded it – Netanyahu was unable to form a government.

Bennett then managed to forge a power-sharing deal with Lapid that granted him the premiership. As part of the deal, Lapid is slated to become prime minister in August 2023.

The move sparked outrage among right-wing voters, pundits, and politicians, who continuously accuse Bennett of defrauding the public. It is indeed outrageous that Bennett’s government relies for power on the support of Arab Islamists.

Were elections held at this time, the poll found that the Likud would win 36 seats, followed by Yesh Atid (17), Blue and White (9), Sephardi ultra-Orthodox party Shas (9), the Religious Zionist Party (8), Ashkenazi ultra-Orthodox party United Torah Judaism (7), Labor (7), Joint Arab List (7), Yisrael Beytenu (6), Meretz (5), the Islamist Ra’am party (5), and Yamina (4).

But with this week’s resignation by coalition whip and Yamina MK Idit Silman, all may change. Without brilliant leadership by Bennett, the coalition that many feared would not last and would lead to yet further elections, looks indeed to be falling apart.

The coalition, based as it is, and led by a party that actually received so few votes, is now facing a crisis. On Monday, Yamina MK and coalition whip Idit Silman decried Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz from Meretz for sending a letter to the heads of hospitals instructing them to abide by a 2020 High Court of Justice decision and let guests bring bread and other leavened products (chametz) into the hospitals during the upcoming Passover holiday.

Silman stated that this was a cardinal issue for her and threatened that it was something she could not tolerate. Accordingly she has quite the coalition and rejoined Lihud.

But the chametz issue may only be the proximate cause of a split that may always have been inevitable for a politician with a religious base, but trying to govern with radical leftists, secularists and Arabs. Bennett has been turning his attention to the possibility of mediating between Russia and Ukraine; meanwhile, he neglected the concerns of his own party, and these concerns may eventually cause an end to his government, if more members follow Silman’s lead.

Thus, one can say that Bennett’s leadership is perhaps too weak to hold together the disparate forces in his coalition.

Turning to the United States, we see a dangerous failure of leadership by President Biden and Vice-President Kamala Harris. A sampling of recent polls show Biden with an approval rating between 39% and 45% and a disapproval rate of between 50% and 55%.

Biden has been seen to fumble policies on the economy, inflation, the southern border, crime and drugs, energy independence, China, Ukraine, and corrupt practices with his son Hunter. He often misspeaks and appears to be suffering from age-related mental confusion. His hurried pull out from Afghanistan, abandoning to the Taliban the Bagram Airfields, numerous Afghan interpreters and other American allies and billions of dollars of the most modern military equipment and vehicles, has done incalculable damage to America’s leadership position in the world. What leadership can he offer?

GEICO blundered with invite to Islamist, will it fix the mess? thumbnail

GEICO blundered with invite to Islamist, will it fix the mess?

By Center For Security Policy

If anyone has reason to be furious about GEICO’s decision to invite Linda Sarsour to participate in a diversity seminar honoring Middle Eastern and North African Heritage Month for the company’s employees in early April, it’s the company’s corporate owner, Omaha-based Berkshire Hathaway.

For a company whose entire raison d’etre is to mitigate risk, GEICO’s selection of Sarsour is bewildering. Without meaning to, GEICO provided a clinic on how companies can make gross errors in partnerships when they move forward without an iota of research or an eye towards actual risk for the company, its communities, and our country. Even a few moments with that elusive search engine, Google, would reveal Sarsour’s incendiary and divisive rhetoric is hardly the message that a national insurance company in the business of risk management should promote.

In 2017, Sarsour called for “jihad” in America, comparing Donald Trump, an elected president, with unelected authoritarian tyrants in the Middle East. And at the height of the George Floyd riots during which protesters were destroying store fronts and setting buildings on fire in cities throughout the country, she declared that reforming law enforcement practices in the United States was impossible. “Burn it all down, start over,” she said.

In both instances, Sarsour said she wasn’t promoting violence, but given the realities of intergroup conflict in the U.S., it’s hard not to conclude that some of her listeners would interpret her words as license for attacks on property owned by GEICO customers.

It just doesn’t make sense for an insurance company to promote such a speaker, but that’s what GEICO did when it asked Sarsour to speak at a celebration of Middle East and North African Heritage Month.

GEICO officials did the right thing by canceling Sarsour’s presentation, but the company put itself into the proverbial Islamist frying pan and is not yet out of trouble. GEICO is facing an onslaught of bad publicity from Islamist groups like the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and its allies who now absurdly claim that its change in programming for its employees is surely a sign of “Islamophobia.”

Many Muslims would argue that the only anti-Muslim bigotry seen so far from GEICO officials was their perception that civilizational jihadists and Muslim Brotherhood legacy group sympathizers like Sarsour somehow represent “diversity” among the Arabic and Muslim communities. If events proceed as has other Islamist bullying episodes, CAIR and its allies will not stop until they force the company into apologizing for canceling Sarsour’s presentation and admitting to the sin of Islamophobia.

I’m certainly not a fan of cancel culture, as the Islamists have targeted me on a number of occasions. When I was targeted, however, I was booked to speak on the very principles our reform-minded Muslim organization promotes.

In this instance, GEICO did the right thing. When GEICO realized it booked the wrong person for the event they were hosting, the corporation changed direction.

By anointing Sarsour as a representative of Arab Americans with its invitation, GEICO unintentionally portrayed this community as being at war with the country where they live, and that’s simply not how it is, not to mention the venomous antisemitism that Sarsour embodies in her support of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement targeting Israel.

Most Arabs and Muslims living in the U.S. are not interested in promoting “jihad” in the streets of the cities in which they live, nor are they interested inflaming tensions in a country that has endured so much violence in recent years. They want to live in peace with their neighbors and have little tolerance for Sarsour’s inflammatory and self-aggrandizing rhetoric.

Sarsour also brings Islam into undeserved disrepute with her antics. The cycle is all too predictable. First, she engages in divisive rhetoric that incites tensions. And then, when people complain, she calls them white supremacists and Islamophobes, transforming Islam from a pietistic faith that changes people’s lives into a club with which to abuse her opponents in the public square.

GEICO didn’t know how unpleasant Sarsour was, but they did the right thing upon finding out.

The company needs to do more.

In particular, GEICO needs to promote the work of moderate, reform Muslims on the American scene. Not only will this help improve intergroup relations in the U.S., but will preempt attacks from CAIR and its allies to portray GEICO as a bastion of anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant bigotry in the U.S.

First off, GEICO should contact the American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD), an organization founded to advocate for the preservation of the founding principles of the United States Constitution, liberty and freedom, through the separation of mosque and state.

GEICO could also contact the Muslim Reform Movement which seeks to “reclaim the progressive spirit with which Islam was born in the 7th century to fast forward it into the 21st century.” The organization’s website declares, “We support the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which was adopted by United Nations member states in 1948.”

The company should consider hosting a talk by Asra Nomani, Raheel Raza, or Soraya Deen. They are all Muslim Reformers and women’s rights activists outspoken against the separatist Islamist ideas Sarsour touts. Soraya praised the company for canceling Sarsour’s talk and confronted Sarsour’s rhetoric directly, declaring that she is “is proud of her hate of Israel, Israeli Jews and Muslim reformers and atheists, not to mention conservatives, cops and the US military.”

GEICO made a terrible mistake by inviting Sarsour to speak at a “diversity and inclusion” seminar. Sadly, the cancelation of the event where she was slated to speak rendered the company vulnerable to attacks from Islamist groups like CAIR. The damage can be minimized and the attacks countered by highlighting Arabs and Muslims in the U.S. who love their country and want to see it succeed.

If GEICO does the right thing, it will help the U.S. turn a corner and start to heal from the ugly divisiveness and hostility that has dominated its public square for far too long.

It will also perhaps learn its own actuarial lesson in loss-prevention.

The Lie of Biden’s ‘Lifesaving’ Treatment thumbnail

The Lie of Biden’s ‘Lifesaving’ Treatment

By Family Research Council

I have this intense rage in me over the harm that was done to me…” — Julie, 27

When Julie woke up from her double mastectomy in the children’s hospital in Syracuse, she expected to feel elated. Instead, she only felt numb. It wasn’t supposed to be like this, she thought. Years later, she looks back with anger at the “collaborative idiocy” that crushed her spirit, permanently scarred her body, and left her feeling empty, betrayed, and alone. Like so many victims of the mutilating treatments this White House calls “livesaving,” Julie will never fully get her life back. We’ve gone too far, the survivors of this movement are crying out. And no one, not even the president, is listening.

For Suzy Weiss, who tells their stories, the emotions must be difficult to contain. In a powerful piece called “The Testosterone Hangover,” Weiss is a witness to the pain of these trusting souls — women who were pushed along a path that would ultimately destroy their young adulthood.

Chloe was only 15 when her mother sat nervously in the waiting room, waiting for word on her daughter’s breast removal. Like so many of the teenagers sucked into this world, she was unhappy with how she looked and spent a lot of time on Tumblr, immersed in trans messaging. She remembers sitting on her bed at the tender age of 12, wondering if she was meant to live as a boy. Two years later, Weiss recounts, she was taking puberty blockers and testosterone injections. By June of 2020, she was wheeled into an operating room for a drastic surgery that she would regret for the rest of her life.

Eleven months later, she was still confined to her bed, struggling with the restrictions of “nipple grafts” and other side effects. She started to miss “being pretty” and made the brave announcement that she was going to detransition — a move that made her even more of an outcast at school. Today, she misses the feminine body that she left behind. “I was looking for a niche to fit in and a sense of fulfillment.” Now, she tells Weiss, “I don’t really believe in gender identity at all.”

Meanwhile, people at the highest levels of government seem fixated on casting our sons and daughters in these horror stories — even going so far as to force taxpayers to fund the harm. Congresswoman Mary Miller (R-Ill.), one of the many Republicans appalled by HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra’s insistence that children are “entitled” to these treatments, pushed back. She demanded to know if it was “child abuse,” as the American College of Pediatricians has labeled it, to perform sterilizing surgeries on kids as young as 12. He refused to answer. “[The Biden administration is] doing nothing but engaging in extreme woke politics with children being their victims,” she said angrily on “Washington Watch.” “I can’t even think of enough bad adjectives to describe this. It’s evil, it’s insane.”

And the mainstream press is enabling it. Just this past week, the much-maligned PolitiFact, whose obvious political agenda has made its “fact-checking” a punch line, weighed in on the exchange between Miller and Becerra. “Miller said the Biden administration is ‘encouraging children to take chemical castration drugs and undergo surgeries,’ and ‘are lying to children by telling them puberty blockers are reversible…’ We rate this claim as FALSE.”

That’s news to the medical community, groups of which have openly admitted that puberty blockers are not “fully reversible.” The Society for Evidence Based Gender Medicine (SEGM) has warned repeatedly that “[l]ittle is known about the long-term side effects of hormone or puberty blockers in children with gender dysphoria.” As experts repeatedly point out, several of these hormones are off-label drugs that haven’t been studied for their impact on children. But there are plenty of things experts do know about the side effects, including: “When puberty blockers are administered in early puberty and followed by cross-sex hormones,” SEGM notes, “sterility is expected.”

Even transgender activists — many of whom blazed this trail and underwent radical operations themselves — have been horrified at the rush to transition children. One, a doctor, is speaking out publicly — sounding the alarm that this wave is rooted in social influence, not genuine gender dysphoria. “I have these private thoughts: ‘This has gone too far. It’s going to get worse. I don’t want any part of it,’” said Erica Anderson, who, until recently was “on the forefront of transgender care.” He underwent dramatic surgery in his late 50s but believes strongly that the pendulum has swung “to an extreme.”

“A fair number of kids are getting into it because it’s trendy,” he told the Washington Post. “I think in our haste to be supportive, we’re missing that element… Teenagers influence each other.” Anderson thinks kids are leaning into gender treatments, hoping it helps with other psychological problems — and then struggle to dig out of the depression when it doesn’t. “I have a dictum: When in doubt, doubt,” she told the LA paper. “Questioning is a good thing. How are you going to find out if you are lockstep with whatever conclusion you come to first?”

Helena Kerschner, an outspoken detransitioner with one of the biggest platforms, is grateful for anyone who raises a red flag. “I had a ton of issues with my academics and my mental health, but I never really got help with that,” Helena said. “As soon as I said I was trans, it was all-hands on deck.” But after a year and a half on drugs, she started to cut herself. “The reality I was living was not lining up with the fantasy I’d had as a teen… It was a crushing and terrifying feeling.”

To her, this White House’s obsession with gender treatments is terrifying. “The fact that there [are] adults as high up as in the Biden administration putting out these claims that young people need to medically transition is really dangerous. There’s no logic to it.”

Fortunately for this generation, there are leaders like Mary Miller who will lay it all on the line to stop more Julies, Chloes, and Helenas from living this nightmare. When PolitiFact and the rest of the Left’s bullies come after her, she says, “I’m going to fight back. If they want to fight, they can bring it on. Because… I’m not backing down.” Thank goodness.

Ilhan Omar Blasted for Anti-Christian Bigotry Over Video Comment

By Discover The Networks

Noted antisemite and sharia-supporter Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) incurred a flood of social media condemnation — and rightfully so — over the weekend for her remarks about a video of passengers singing Christian music on a plane.

In the now-viral video, captioned “Worshipping Jesus 30,000 feet in the air,” passengers are seen singing a popular Christian worship song inside an airliner. The clip was originally posted by Jack Jensz Jr., founder of Kingdom Realm Ministries, who has been assisting Ukrainian refugees in Europe along with his congregation.

The Muslim congresswoman retweeted the clip, adding, “I think my family and I should have a prayer session next time I am on a plane. How do you think it will end?”

“I think you should shut up and stop being a bigot,” responded conservative author Kurt Schlichter.

“Ilhan Omar @IlhanMN attacks a group of Christian volunteers on an @easyJet flight in Europe delivering aid to Ukraine, because they’re singing,” wrote activist and businessman Avi Kaner.

“Why does this person who lives free and liberated because of the compassion of our country not appreciate that we’re a Judeo-Christian society uniquely founded to protect those of all faiths?” wrote talk radio host Joe “Pags” Pagliarulo.

“Why does she constantly denigrate the place that offered her so much?” he asked. “Praying for her.”

“I spent decades flying in the Middle East. We weren’t even allowed to bring Bibles into the countries or worship. This sort of impromptu singing would turn into arrests and imprisonment,” wrote former congressional Republican candidate and Air Force pilot Buzz Patterson. “I’ll celebrate our freedoms here. You do you.”

“I doubt that people would care one bit. It’s the slitting of throats with box cutters and flying jetliners into buildings that we have an issue with. Next question,” wrote conservative commentator Todd Starnes.

“Stop with the Christianphobia, Congresswoman,” wrote conservative author and YouTube personality Mark Dice.

“If someone yelled Allahu Akbar I’d freak out, YOU’d freak out and ANY Muslim would freak out given the fact we still have many radical Islamists in our religion (Hizbollah, ISIS, Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas etc) all would love to hijack a plane for another 9/11 who we kidding..,” wrote former Miss Iraq Sarah Idan.

Omar Emphasizes That America Is a Racist Nation

On May 3, 2021, Omar told MSNBC host Joy Reid that she and her fellow black Democrats were becoming exhausted by people who refused to concede that America was a racist nation. “I think there is a lot of emotional exhaustion that many of us who are black lawmakers and black people in public service are experiencing,” said Omar. “Because every single day you know that there are ways to transform the justice system, the policing system, and you have to have conversation[s] with people who want to turn a blind eye to the injustices that exist within our systems, who continue to insist that this country is not a country that is racist, that our systems don’t have racism embedded in them.”

The far-left propaganda outlet The New York Times chose Good Friday, which commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus, to publish an op-ed that proposes rejecting belief in God.

Titled “In This Time of War, I Propose We Give Up God,” the article by disillusioned ex-Jew and New Yorker Shalom Auslander, who claims that God is responsible for “war and violence” and for “oppression and suffering.” He argues that, especially as war currently rages in Ukraine, we stop teaching children about Him:

God, it seems, paints with a wide brush. He paints with a roller. In Egypt, said our rabbi, he even killed first-born cattle. He killed cows. If he were mortal, the God of Jews, Christians and Muslims would be dragged to The Hague. And yet we praise him. We emulate him. We implore our children to be like him.

Perhaps now, as missiles rain down and the dead are discovered in mass graves, is a good time to stop emulating this hateful God. Perhaps we can stop extolling his brutality. Perhaps now is a good time to teach our children to pass over God — to be as unlike him as possible…

Killing gods is an idea I can get behind.

The article is so poorly-argued and theologically illiterate that one must assume the Times published it on Passover/Easter weekend solely for its clickbait value.

96 Known Connections

During the course of its history the Times has won 94 Pulitzer Prizes (including a record seven in 2002), far more than any other newspaper. These awards have sometimes been fraught with controversy, however. For example, Walter Duranty was a Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times Moscow correspondent in the 1930s who concealed his knowledge of Joseph Stalin‘s mass murders and other atrocities in the Soviet Union. In 1933, at the height of the Russian famine during which millions starved to death, Duranty wrote that “village makets [were] flowing with eggs, fruit, poultry, vegetables, milk and butter. … A child can see this is not famine but abundance.” According to historians, reports such as these were crucial factors influencing President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s decision to grant the Soviet Union diplomatic recognition in 1933. Writes historian Ronald Radosh,  “Duranty was a propagandist for Stalin and everything he wrote was a lie.”

The Times was likewise dishonest in its reporting about the atrocities of the Nazi Holocaust…

Americans overwhelmingly support a congressional review of a new Iran deal thumbnail

Americans overwhelmingly support a congressional review of a new Iran deal

By Center For Security Policy

Editor’s note: The Center for Security Policy gratefully acknowledges its collaboration with tippinsights on the simultaneous and exclusive release of this important story.

As the final stages of the Vienna talks progress, the prospects for a revived joint U.S.-Iranian nuclear deal become more likely. Americans overwhelmingly agree that a new deal must be submitted for Congressional review.

Congressional Review And Vote

A new collaborative CSP/TIPP poll conducted in early April 2022 found that 83% of respondents, including 85% of “liberals” who are following the story, feel that it is essential that Congress votes on whether or not the U.S. rejoins the nuclear deal.

38% of respondents are “closely” following stories related to the Iran deal, while 53% are not. The number of Americans tuning in to the progress of the Vienna talks is likely to rise as the prospects for a revived deal become more imminent.

The Iran Nuclear Agreement Act (INARA), passed in 2015 with bipartisan support, prevents the president from suspending or waiving sanctions before Congress can vote on an agreement. Essentially, any new deal to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons must be submitted to Congress for review. Therefore, if Democratic Party leaders refuse to submit the current Iran deal on the table in Vienna for Congressional review, they would violate this treaty. Additionally, according to the poll results, a lack of Congressional review would not be supported by the American people. But, the administration is not likely to follow it. The argument is that the reentry to JCPOA is not a new deal and that Congress authorized it earlier in 2015.

President Biden promised to rejoin the Obama-era deal that remains constitutionally questionable at the onset of his term. In 2015, the Obama administration executed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) as an executive agreement, not a treaty reviewed and voted on by Congress. While executive orders alone are not rare, the use of one to accomplish significant international arrangements is. Article II of the Constitution dictates the president must obtain consent from a two-thirds majority to pass international obligations.

The method the Obama administration used to push through the original 2015 JCPOA, combined with Iran’s growing capabilities, may be influencing the strong support Americans have for Congressional oversight this time around.

Joining The Deal

62% of those following the story support joining the deal, while 33% oppose it. Support by party and ideology varies widely. Most Democrats and liberals support while Republicans and conservatives oppose the agreement. Support by party and ideology:

  • 84% of Democrats,
  • 37% of Republicans,
  • 49% of Independents,
  • 43% of conservatives,
  • 69% of moderates, and
  • 84% of liberals.

Full Disclosure Of Terms

In the same CSP/TIPP poll, respondents were asked, “How confident are you that the Biden administration will fully disclose all of the terms of the new Iran deal to Congress?” 64% of those following the Iran story selected “confident,” while 34% selected “not confident.” Ideally, Americans would trust the sitting president to be transparent with Congress, especially when significant consequences are on the line.

President Biden’s credentials aren’t the best, despite his 40 years of foreign policy experience. We hope he will be transparent and negotiate a long-term agreement with bipartisan support.

Faith – Why Is It Important? thumbnail

Faith – Why Is It Important?

By Bud Hancock


There is a battle constantly raging in the mental realm, a battle that if lost, can claim the soul of the combatant.  The battle is between Good (God/faith) and evil (Satan/fear).  Just as God and Satan are diametrically opposing forces, so faith and fear have never been able to exist together without a fight breaking out.  They are both spiritual forces and the fight is in the spiritual realm where both faith and fear operate, and in the mental realm where Satan attacks.

There are several main differences between faith and fear.  First, from the human perspective, fear is both a ‘passive’ force and an ‘aggressive force’.  From its source, Satan, it is an ‘aggressive’ force, ALWAYS active and actively seeking to enter and control your mind; it is ‘passive’ from the perspective that the target of it doesn’t need to do anything for it to enter and destroy.  In fact, unless the target aggressively acts to oppose and stop fear, it WILL enter your mind and begin its destruction.

Satan is the ‘master of fear’ and he works to introduce issues, questions or problems through your eyes and ears that provide a pathway for fear to enter and begin its destructive work.

On the other hand and also from the human perspective, faith, when put into action, is an ‘aggressive’ force, meaning that the person who wants to use his or her faith to produce a specific result MUST deliberately and aggressively exercise his or her faith for it to work and produce that result.

This article attempts to explain the workings of ‘faith’ and why it is critical to maintain strong, active and aggressive faith in our Christian walk.

What is Faith?

The writer of the Book of Hebrews tells us, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear” (Hebrews 11:1 KJV).

Interestingly, the word ‘substance’ in this passage is the English translation of the Greek word, ‘hupostasis’, (Strong’s 5287, pronounced hoop-os’-tas-is); it means the ‘setting under’, support (as in a foundation), the ‘essence’.  In its use as a ‘foundation’, it assures us that faith is ‘the foundation’, the spiritual support on which our hope rests.

Enter the ‘Evidence’

The evidence mentioned in Hebrews 11:1 is the English translation of the Greek word elegchos (Strong’s 1650, pronounced el’-eng-khos) and is generally defined as a ‘title deed’, or a ‘proof’, a ‘conviction’ that brings confidence.  Even though every man has been ‘dealt the measure of faith’, faith alone will accomplish nothing.  A person’s ‘hope’ must be reinforced with a foundation (support for things hoped for) that will make evident (bring into sight) those things which ‘are hoped for’, but cannot yet be seen.  The first verse in chapter 11 of Hebrews tells us that by this action, the combination of support and the ‘title deed’, God the Creator made everything that can be seen from that which is unseen.

Greek scholar Marvin R. Vincent explained this action very well: the foundation, Gr. ‘Hupostasis’, and the evidence, Gr. ‘elegchos’ are not to be considered as totally separate conceptions in this case, but must be taken together for faith to work.

The foundation and the evidence cannot be separated or faith will fail.

How is Faith Activated?

It is critical to understand that faith, lying dormant, has absolutely no ability to bring anything hoped for into existence.  Faith, a spiritual substance, when used according to God’s word, will allow unseen things that are ‘hoped for’ and which exist in the spiritual realm to be proven, or seen, first on a spiritual level, with ‘spiritual eyes’, then on a physical level as faith causes the unseen things to be brought into the physical realm where the former ‘hope’ for them can be realized and fulfilled.

There are substantive things which can be seen with the human eye and things which cannot.  Both exist, but the physical things we CAN see often are given more credence just BECAUSE they can be seen.  However, the things that are spiritual exist on a higher level, one that can be accessed only by the spiritual force of faith.  It is futile and dangerous to try to see the unseen things with the human eye and bring them into the physical realm (using mental assent, wishing them into existence), thus denying the faith that supports the hope for, and the attainment of, the unseen:  futile in the sense that your physical eyes and ears, absent the force of faith, are not and will not ever be able to ‘see’ them; dangerous in the sense that, an unseen spiritual force, such as a demon spirit, is more than happy to provide you with something you can see that will enter your life in a way that causes chaos and destruction.

The Faith of God

Faith is not just required in order to realize the things one hopes for, but even more importantly, one cannot please God except through faith (Hebrews 11:6 KJV).  Why is this?  Consider that everything that our God created was ‘by faith’ (Hebrews 11:3 KJV).  He knew that  whatever He spoke forth using His faith, would come to pass, or appear, in the exact way He desired.  But why does God have to use faith?  Everything that can be affected in the spirit realm can only be affected using a spiritual force.  Fear uncontested will stop faith in its tracks.  Since there is no fear in God, He used His faith to create what He desired to have. His spoken words activated His faith and brought the unseen into a physical world where it can be seen with physical eyes.

Where Does Human Faith Come From?

We’re told in Romans 12:3, For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.”  So there it is: God has given every man the measure of faith, but how much is that ‘measure’?  The English word ‘measure’ is from the Greek word metron (Strong’s 3358, pronounced met’-ron), meaning by implication, a ‘limited (fixed) amount’ or to a limited (fixed) degree.  So, from the above scripture, it should be apparent that every person has been given ‘the measure of faith’.

Dormant faith is virtually useless since it must be activated to bring any change.  If we are to learn to use faith to produce good things/results, we need to understand that it is NOT the amount of faith one has, but whether one has learned how to activate it.  What is needed to get the faith into motion, working on the ‘things hoped for’?  When Jesus was teaching around a multitude, a man approached Him and begged the Lord to heal his son who was ‘lunatic and sore vexed’ by a demon spirit.  The disciples had tried to heal the child but were unable to do so and the man brought the child directly to Jesus.  Jesus rebuked the demon which then departed from the child.  The disciples privately asked Jesus why they were unable to cast out the devil.  “And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, YE SHALL SAY unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.  Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting” (Matthew 17:19-21 KJV).

There are two critical points in Jesus words that MUST be understood if one is to use his faith to produce good results.  First, even though Jesus mentions ‘faith as a grain of mustard seed’, He is not talking about the size of the seed.  The mustard seed, even though extremely small, is capable of growing into a plant large enough for birds to roost in.  But, unless that seed is planted, it will remain a tiny seed that produces nothing.  Jesus equates the mustard seed with faith.  It is NOT the size of your faith that is important, but what you DO with it. But how does that seed (faith) get planted?  Allow the words of Jesus to answer that question with the words He gave to His disciples when they asked Him about the ‘parable of the sower’ in Mark chapter 4: “The sower soweth the word”.  The physical act of sowing a seed into the ground (which when watered, activates the seed) is equivalent to activating faith by speaking it out (sowing the word).  In Jesus’s words, if one has faith and properly activates it, nothing shall be impossible unto him.

Secondly, Jesus confirms that dealing effectively with certain demon spirits ‘requires prayer and fasting’.  Being ready in an instant to help someone who is being tormented by a demon will require more than reciting a few Bible verses and saying, ‘be freed, healed or blessed’.  This can be equated with the words of James who said, Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” (James, 4:7 KJV)

‘Aggressive Faith’ Demands Something

In Luke chapter 18, Jesus was teaching His disciples and followers and he used the parable of the widow who went to a judge and asked him to ‘avenge her of her adversary’.  Jesus described this particular judge as ‘unjust’, a man who neither feared God nor had any regard for man.  Obviously, after the judge originally refused to hear her, the widow returned several times, asking for his help, and he, being wearied of her persistence, finally provided the vengeance she requested.

The widow seems to have had faith in the ability of the unjust judge to avenge her since she kept returning and repeating her request.  She likely knew that he was unjust but she recognized the authority that was given to him as a judge to avenge her.  We’re told that she sought ‘vengeance’, so vengeance is what she was hoping to get. She exercised faith by asking/demanding to be given what she hoped to get.

As Jesus ended the teaching, he stated that even though God ‘bears long with his elect’, He will avenge them speedily.  Then He asked a curious question: “Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall He find faith on the earth?”  I found the best explanation for this curious passage in The New Testament, An Expanded Translation, by the renowned Greek language scholar and Biblical translator, Kenneth S. Wuest.  Mr. Wuest also wrote a four-volume series, Word Studies in the Greek New Testament and these books provide an education in understanding the New Testament using his thorough translation and word study of the original Greek words from that period.  In this passage, Wuest relates that when Jesus asked that question, based on the tense of the words written, He was referring to the ‘type of faith’ the widow used when she ‘constantly’ asked the judge to satisfy her demand for justice.  Hers was a faith that would not allow her to ask once and then quietly and meekly walk away, forgetting what she needed.  Her faith was strong and she repeatedly used it (aggressively) to receive what she hoped for until the judge relented and provided it.

This use of ‘aggressive’ faith was what Jesus was talking about when He questioned whether He would find it when He returns.  Just before His death, He was explaining to His disciples who had depended on Him for all their needs, sometimes through miracles, that He was going away and that they would now be praying to the Father in Jesus name.  He told them, Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.  The word ‘ask’ used here is best translated ‘be continually asking’, or ask just as the widow did who, due to her aggressive faith and persistence, received what she needed.  Jesus is talking about ‘aggressive faith’, the kind that never gives up.

Jesus was at times amazed at the lack of faith among his Jewish brethren, and was often amazed at the great faith he found among some gentiles.  But this question seems to indicate that He has some doubt about the presence of ‘aggressive faith’, the persistent faith that actually gets results, the kind that He seems to doubt will be in use when He returns to earth.  Based on the level of apostasy now being seen among the ‘religious denominations’, I would say His doubt is well founded.

Great Faith

The definition of a ‘measure’, or ‘fixed amount’ of faith, could easily beg the question, “If every man has inherently a measure of faith exactly the same as every other man, how is it that some people are known as having ‘great faith’ and some as having ‘little faith’.  Jesus used those descriptions in several passages, for example, when He was asked to heal the sick servant of the Roman centurion, and Jesus offered to come to the centurion’s house and heal the man, the centurion said, “Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.”  (Matthew 8:8-9 KJV).  Jesus then marveled at the man and said to all the people around him, “I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel” (Matthew 8:10 KJV)

Why did this get the attention of Jesus so that he marveled at the man?  Because the centurion, ‘a man set under authority’, and knowing exactly the limit of that authority, he recognized the authority in Jesus and he voiced his faith in that authority.  He spoke out (vocally exercised) his faith in Jesus authority, the authority God had given to Jesus to heal any sickness or disease.   The ‘exercise’ of his ‘limited measure of faith’ brought forth from Jesus the healing of his servant, that which he had hoped for.  His faith was still limited, but, because he exercised the ‘measure of faith’ he HAD, he received that for which he had hoped.

Little Faith

Shortly after his meeting with the centurion, Jesus commanded His disciples that He and they should enter a small ship and depart for the other side (of the Sea of Galilee).

And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him. And behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep. And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish. And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.  But the men marveled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!” (Matthew 8:23-27 KJV).

Jesus asked His disciples why they were so fearful and said they were “of little faith”.  He did not mean that their faith was ‘small in stature’, but that, because they did not exercise it, it had no force behind it.  Just for comparison, let’s say that faith is similar to a bicep muscle in a man’s body.  Every male person born has that same muscle, whether a grown man or a small child.  But the bicep in the adult body is much larger and stronger than that of the child.  Why is that?  Simple, the man has used and exercised that muscle thousands of times, causing it to become larger and stronger with constant exercising, and the child has not.  It is not the ‘size’ of the muscle (faith) that matters, but how it is used, or exercised.

Faith Exercised Brings Peace and Joy

This same event is mentioned in the Book of Luke: “Now it came to pass on a certain day, that he went into a ship with his disciples: and he said unto them, Let us go over unto the other side of the lake (Luke 8:22 KJV).  If Jesus spoke it, whatever He spoke was sure to find fruition, or in this case, whatever conditions might prevail, such as a violent storm, because Jesus had spoken the words, He WAS GOING TO THE OTHER SIDE, no matter what.  He never allowed fear to enter His consciousness because fear is the enemy of faith.

Had the disciples established their confidence in and on Jesus’s words, they also would have laid down and slept, totally without fear, because the ship was going to the other side, storm or no storm.  Jesus never allowed fear to enter His consciousness because fear is the enemy of faith and if allowed to enter the heart, faith will give way to it. God’s spiritual laws always guided Jesus in everything He said and did; remember, God’s spiritual law always dominates physical law, even when the physical law presents a violent storm.

Thankfully, Jesus DID exercise His faith and he SPOKE to the winds and the waves and brought peace and calm out of chaos and violence.  This is what Jesus demonstrated during His entire life, that ‘aggressive’ faith can bring peace that passes all understanding and joy unspeakable.

The fact that Jesus questioned whether that kind of faith would be ‘found’ when He comes back indicates that He is constantly looking for it, knowing that it is the only way to bring the peace and joy that He wants us to have.

Are you ready to aggressively exercise your faith and receive the things hoped for along with the peace and joy you desire?  If so, submit yourselves to God, stay submitted to Him and then get to work and allow the exercising of your faith to begin bringing those unseen ‘things hoped for’ from the  spiritual realm into the physical realm where they can be seen and enjoyed.

Blessings and, Maranatha!

Homoerotic singer to entertain teens on Easter Monday in the Vatican.

VATICAN CITY ( – The Italian bishops have invited Italy’s leading soft porn singer and rapper to perform at St. Peter’s Square on Easter Monday before an audience of 60,000 teenagers.

Blanco (right) and Mahmood posed naked on Vanity Fair’s cover

Riccardo Fabbriconi, known professionally as Blanco, won acclaim from LGBTQ+ fans after a homoeroticperformance at Italy’s Sanremo 2022 Festival where he does a double act with singer Alessandro Mahmood, who is rumored to be gay.

“Blanco and Mahmood have become true icons for homosexuals,” Italian media reported, commenting on the duo’s “intense and enchanting song ‘Brividi,’” (translated as “shivers” or “chills”). The song uses the “f-word” and celebrates a homoerotic relationship.

The invitation to Blanco is at the behest of the Italian Episcopal Conference (CEI), which has organized the national youth pilgrimage being led by Fr. Michele Falabretti, head of the bishops’ National Service for Youth Ministry.

Around 60 bishops are expected to attend the event, bringing young people from their dioceses to the Vatican. The bishops’ media Avvenire said Blanco’s performance will prepare the teens for a prayer meeting and sermon from Pope Francis later the same evening.

‘Not Suitable’ Messaging

Bishop Antonio Suetta of the diocese of Ventimiglia-San Remo told Italian newspaper La Nuova Bussola Quotidiana he was scandalized by the invitation since “the message conveyed by Blanco is not suitable for a Catholic context.”

Blanco and Mahmood have become true icons for homosexuals. GabTweet

“If entertainment is intended to prepare children for the meeting with the Holy Father and for prayer, I would find it more appropriate to invite artists in the field of Christian music, and there is an avalanche of them,” Suetta said.

Blanco’s public photos “reflect an approach to the body, to human relationships and to the vision of life that clashes with the Christian vision,” the bishop explained. “I also saw a photo of him practically in his underwear, squeezing his genitals with his hand.”

Blanco and Mahmood appeared stark naked on the cover of the Italian edition of Vanity Fair, only covering their genitals with their hands. (Church Militant has pixelated the offensive parts in the image, shown above.)

Suetta, one of the lone Italian bishops to stand against the spirit of the age, elaborated:

I understand that the world has fallen into vulgarity, but we, as a Church, must we endorse the vulgarity? We have an enormous artistic heritage with multiple expressions; the Church has always used these means to elevate the spirit, illuminating the fashions and different styles of the times. But can we call this kind of performance “art”?

I’ve long been under the impression that these slips come from a misunderstood concept of dialogue. I give dialogue a positive value. Clearly, I do not consider it an absolute, because the meaning of our human relationships cannot be limited to dialogue. It should not be confused with compromise; dialogue is an instrument of our intelligence to get to know each other and walk together to the truth.

I also saw a photo of him practically in his underwear, squeezing his genitals with his hand. GabTweet

In the first week of April, the rapper made headlines when he picked up a bra and wore it around his tattooed chest. The bra was thrown at him by a young female fan in the front row at a concert in Padua.

“For some, the gesture of wearing women’s underwear was a signal to define themselves as ‘fluid.’ For others, Blanco once again showed his eclectic exuberance,” Italian daily Il Giornalecommented.

Latest Perversion of ‘Art’

The Vatican and the Italian bishops have scandalized the faithful in recent years with a number of displays masquerading as art.

“Gender fluid” Blanco dons a bra at the Padua concert

Donations from Peter’s Pence, the pope’s charitable collection, were used to fund the 2019 Elton John biopic Rocketman, featuring an explicit gay sex scene. Singer Elton John, who “married” his “husband” David Furnish, slammed the Church as “hypocritical” for funding his film but refusing to bless same-sex marriages.

Faithful Catholics blasted the Vatican’s 2018 nativity for featuring a homoerotic figure. The Christmas crib, meant to portray the seven corporal acts of mercy, was made in Montevergine, a town famous for its close links with Italy’s LGBTQ+ community.

In 2017, Abp. Vincenzo Paglia, head of the Pontifical Academy for Life, commissioned homosexual artist Ricardo Cinalli to paint a homoerotic mural in his cathedral in the diocese of Terni-Narni-Amelia.

The mural includes a homoerotic image of Paglia and portrays Jesus lifting to Heaven two nets filled with naked and semi-nude homosexuals, transsexuals, prostitutes and drug dealers tangled together in sexual interactions.

I understand that the world has fallen into vulgarity, but we, as a Church, must we endorse the vulgarity? GabTweet

In April 2008, authorities at Vienna’s St. Stephen’s Cathedral caused outrage when they exhibited an artwork portraying the Last Supper as a homoerotic orgy. The exhibition, “Religion, Flesh and Power,” by controversial sculptor Alfred Hrdlicka, depicted Jesus being fondled and the Apostles groping one another.

Cardinal Christoph Schönborn ordered the removal of the Last Supper exhibit, but other blasphemous pictures — including one showing Christ being fondled while on the Cross — were left on display.

“I don’t think it helps the kids to get to know Jesus Christ better by offering a further opportunity to listen to Blanco,” Suetta lamented. “It is something that embarrasses, creates worry and discomfort. If by scandal we mean something that literally stands in the way, yes, it is.”

The Holy See Press Office did not respond to Church Militant’s request for comment as of press time.

Person of interest in NYC subway shooting expressed black identity extremism in online posts thumbnail

Person of interest in NYC subway shooting expressed black identity extremism in online posts

By Center For Security Policy

UPDATE: Law enforcement arrested Frank James on April 13th in New York’s East Village neighborhood following an anonymous tip. He has been charged under federal terrorism statutes.

Law enforcement remains on the look out for Frank James, a 63-year-old man with ties to Pennsylvania and Wisconsin who is alleged to be responsible for a mass shooting that took place April 12th, at a New York City Subway Station, in which 10 people were shot and 13 others injured. James was reportedly identified as the renter of a U-Haul van believed to be linked to the attack. According to media reports, the FBI had previously investigated the suspectfor ties to terrorism in 2019 but had cleared him.

According to Law enforcement, James, wearing a green vest similar to that used by MTA subway workers and donned a gas mask prior to the attack inside the N-Line subway train at the 36th and 4th Avenue station. He then deployed a smoke grenade inside one of the subway cars before opening fire with a small caliber handgun equipped with an extended magazine, firing at least 33 rounds, before escaping in the confusion, possibly along the subway tracks.

According to social media posts and videos which this author has reviewed, James made repeated and routine references to violence and a willingness to conduct a shooting on social media. He also posted material linked to black identity extremist ideologies, including the Nation of Islam, Moorish Science, Black Panthers, Black Liberation Army, and Black Lives Matter. He notably posted a picture of Micah Johnson, the BLM supporter who killed 5 Dallas police officers in 2016. In online videos James can be seen urging racial separatism between whites and blacks.

There is some reason to believe that James may have suffered from a mental illness at some point, as he makes a reference in a video to having been previously detained for mental illness. However, his articulation of black identity extremism appears cogent and in line with common ideological expressions although without any immediate signs of adherence to one specific group.

If it is true that the FBI previously investigated James and cleared him, it once against highlights federal law enforcement’s “Known Wolf” problem where, despite having significant intelligence capabilities that bring potential threats to law enforcement attention, the FBI remains incapable of determining which individuals represent genuine threats and has repeatedly failed to successfully intervene.

In this case that may have something to do with the FBI’s politicized determination to eliminate “black identity extremism” as a potential terrorism motivation for analysis. The FBI had previously used the term to refer to a variety of black supremacist threats until it came under political pressure from the Congressional Black Caucus and left-wing media. As the Center previously noted following an April 2021 vehicular Ramming attackwhere Noah Green, a 25-year old adherent of the Nation of Islam killed a Capitol Police Officer:

Federal Law enforcement has abandoned categorizing or identifying attacks conducted by “black identity extremists” the previous FBI term for attacks conducted by black supremacist or black separatist organizations, following politicalized criticism. The FBI, DHS, and other elements of the intelligence community have routinely downplayed the potential risk of violence from black identity extremists.

The FBI instead classifies black identity extremism under the too-broad category of “Racial or Ethnically Motivated Violent Extremists (REMVE),” although in practice this term is being used exclusively to refer to white supremacist ideologies. This has led to some ridiculous results, such as congressional legislation which included an attack by Black Hebrew Israelites among a list of “white supremacist” attacks. As a result of this political pressure, there has been minimal study and training done to educate law enforcement on the intricacies of the black identity extremist thought, and its various strains and idiosyncrasies. Instead, the tendency is to deny that such attacks are politically motivated, and thus deny any terrorism angle for further investigation.

Law enforcement and intelligence professionals must return to doing detailed analyses to understand threat ideologies within their own historical and ideological context. The current methodology, which seeks to lump various ideological expressions into the broadest possible category trades genuine understanding for political convenience, and as a result, leaves potential threats unaddressed.

The Personal Tragedy of Transgenderism thumbnail

The Personal Tragedy of Transgenderism

By The Daily Skirmish – Liberato.US

I told you a year ago about personal stories of unhappiness coming from transgenders who end up regretting the choices they made.  [Daily Skirmish – 4//6/21].  Another such story has just been told.  This one is remarkable because it appeared where you would least expect it, in the ultra-liberal Washington Post.

A middle-age transgender who had sex change surgery at 19 wrote,

“I know now that I wasn’t old enough to make that decision.”

This person now regrets not being able to have children and being condemned to a lifetime of powerful drugs:

Surgery unshackled me from my body’s urges, but the destruction of my gonads introduced a different type of bondage. From the day of my surgery, I became a medical patient and will remain one for the rest of my life. I must choose between the risks of taking exogenous estrogen, which include venous thromboembolism and stroke, or the risks of taking nothing, which includes degeneration of bone health. In either case, my risk of dementia is higher, a side effect of eschewing testosterone.

The writer is today,

“alarmed by how readily authority figures facilitate transition. I had to persuade two therapists, an endocrinologist and a surgeon to give me what I wanted. None of them were under crushing professional pressure, as they now would be, to ‘affirm’ my choice.”

The writer advises young people give your body and your sexuality a chance before making irreversible changes:

Most of all, slow down. You may yet decide to make the change. But if you explore the world by inhabiting your body as it is, perhaps you’ll find that you love it more than you thought possible.

Another 19-year-old transgender, this one in California, committed suicide.  She started transitioning to a boy secretly at her school a couple years earlier, but it never made her happy.  Her mother lost custody when the mother wouldn’t get with the program.

A former transgender says kids are often misdiagnosed with ‘gender dysphoria’ and set on a path toward sex change, when what they really need is treatment of their underlying unhappiness.  Trauma from adverse childhood experiences like sexual abuse, or physical or emotional abuse, can manifest as gender dysphoria but, once identified and treated, can dissipate without going down the gender transitioning road.

Draft guidelines from the World Professional Association for Transgender Health recommend mental health screenings for adolescents before transitioning starts.  This is common sense but, unfortunately, too many professionals skip that step and go right to gender transitioning as the first resort.

A year ago, I wrote about the hundreds of transgenders who regret their choices and seek to detransition, about how hormone blockers are linked to over six thousand deaths, and about individual transgenders lamenting their sex change was a bad idea, and it ruined their life.

Reason is what sets us apart from animals.  Humans can think about the consequences before making choices.  People who don’t think about the consequences end up having a bad life, it’s that simple.  Transgenders with regrets later in life are Exhibit A.

There will always be transgender people, and nobody should hate them or wish them harm.  But it’s an adult choice, only to be taken after years of calm reflection, not a choice to be foisted on unsuspecting youth by financially self-interested professionals or ideologically motivated left-wing activists.  Think about the consequences – unhappiness, suicide, a lifetime of powerful drugs, among them – before the current bout of transgendermania ruins your life or the life of someone you love.

So ask the professionals trying to make a buck, the activists pursuing a political agenda, and school officials who want to keep it all secret from parents: where’s the fire?  Have you made full disclosure of all the risks to me, including not being able to have children and dementia in old age?  And are you going to be around to help me if it all goes horribly wrong?  See what kind of answers you get.  “Most of all, slow down.”

The secret is, there is no fire.

The Resurrection of Christ Was a Game-Changer thumbnail

The Resurrection of Christ Was a Game-Changer

By Jerry Newcombe

Every week the whole world is reminded of what happened on the first Easter 2000 years ago. Jesus Christ, who was crucified by the Roman Empire, rose from the dead. The atheist who sleeps in each Sunday morning pays indirect homage to the fact that Jesus Christ rose from the dead that first Easter.

Through His atoning death on Friday and His bodily resurrection on Sunday, Jesus solved the two biggest problems we have as human beings:

  1. How can we, as sinful people, be accepted by a holy, perfect God?
  2. How do we deal with life’s biggest threat, which is death?

It’s common among skeptics to believe that Christianity is not based on actual history. But is that view based on actual history?

Dr. Sam Lamerson of Knox Theological Seminary once told me, “Many assume that Christianity is a historical myth much like Apollos or some of the Greek myths, but Christianity is based on historical events that can be verified both archeologically and literarily.”

Several years ago, Newsweek had a cover story, in which they said of the Gospels in general: “These are books that meant to declare religious truths, not historical facts.”

I asked Dr. Paul L. Maier, professor emeritus of ancient history from Western Michigan University, about the idea of separating “religious truths” from “historical facts.” Henoted, “You cannot separate the two. If you do, it’s no longer spiritual or religious truth that has any value. Rather, [the Biblical accounts] must be an honest case of reporting of what happened in the case of Jesus.”

Maier said that historians cannot prove things like Jesus’ resurrection from the dead (how can you prove a miracle?), but they can validate the facts that point to it, such as the empty tomb. Even sources hostile to the message of Jesus and His resurrection testify that His heavily-guarded tomb was empty that first Easter morning.

Like Maier and Lamerson, there are many conservative, well-informed Bible scholars today, who hold to the veracity of Christ’s resurrection. But what about the genuine Bible scholars who do not believe that Jesus rose from the dead? Ultimately, they chafe at the idea of miracles.

As one legal scholar wrote:

“Miracles, say the objectors, are impossible; and therefore the evangelists [Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John] were either deceivers or deceived; and in either case their narratives are unworthy of belief….The argument supposes that the creator of all things first made a code of laws, and then put it out of his own power to change them.”

Who is this—some backwoods rube? No, it was the eminent Simon Greenleaf (1783-1853), professor at Harvard Law School, who contributed a great deal to the school, expanding it, including its library.

Greenleaf wrote the book on legal evidence. Literally. His 3-volume textbook, A Treatise on the Law of Evidence, set the standard for decades and was reprinted through 16 editions. Later, he applied these legal principles to the Biblical Gospels.

Some people have mistakenly claimed that Greenleaf was converted to Christianity by his examination of the evidence. That is not accurate—he was already a committed Episcopalian—but his investigation of the Gospels and the resurrection from an evidentiary standpoint was still a landmark.

That investigation was his 1846 book, The Testimony of the Evangelists: The Gospel Examined by the Rules of Evidence. The evangelists, of course, are Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. As he applied the rules of evidence to the Gospels, he found them reliable.

Greenleaf notes what hurdles the apostles had before them in proclaiming a crucified and risen Jesus:

“The fashion of the world was against them. Propagating this new faith, even in the most inoffensive and peaceful manner, they could expect nothing but contempt, opposition, revilings, bitter persecutions, stripes, imprisonments, torments and cruel deaths. Yet this faith they zealously did propagate; and all these miseries they enduring dismayed, nay, rejoicing…one after another was put to a miserable death.”

He adds,

“The annals of military warfare afford scarcely an example of the like heroic constancy, patience, and unblenching courage. They had every possible motive to review carefully the grounds of their faith, and the evidences of the great facts and truths which they asserted…It was therefore impossible that they could have persisted in affirming the truths they have narrated, had not Jesus actually risen from the dead, and had they not known this fact as certainly as they knew any other fact.” [Emphasis added]

As Biblical scholar Dr. Mike Licona said recently in our D. James Kennedy Ministries-television special, Who Is This Jesus:

“If Jesus rose from the dead, it’s game, set, match. Christianity is true.”

By Christ’s rising from the dead, He proved He is who He said He is.

He is risen indeed.

VIDEO: Carla Sands’ Senate Campaign Rolls Out Faith Leaders Coalition

By Dr. Rich Swier

HARRISBURG, Pa. /PRNewswire/ — More than 50 pastors in over 20 Pennsylvania counties have joined Ambassador Carla Sands’ new Faith Leaders Coalition, the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate announced today. “I am truly honored to have the support – especially in the form of much-needed prayer – of so many pastors and people of faith across the Commonwealth,” Ambassador Sands said today.

The Faith Leaders Coalition is led by John March, executive pastor at Christ Community Church in Ambassadors Sands’ hometown of Camp Hill, Pennsylvania. “Carla learned from her parents’ own Christian ministry right here in Camp Hill – and spent her summers in a Halifax Christian youth camp,” March noted today. “From these Pennsylvania roots, Carla became the servant-leader we have come to know and love – and that’s exactly what our nation so desperately needs.”

Charles Stock, senior pastor at Harrisburg’s Life Center Ministries, cited Ambassador Sands’ “pro-life, pro-family” values in his endorsement of the candidate. “I am thrilled to officially join Carla’s Faith Leaders Coalition,” Stock said today. “I know Carla – and I know that her convictions are deeply held. I have no doubt that Carla will remain a steadfast voice for human dignity and freedom.”

Members of the Faith Leaders Coalition will energize and mobilize “values voters” across Pennsylvania, according to Sands for Senate Campaign Manager Alec Jones. “Families know that Carla will have their backs. Carla will fight to remove divisive ideology from our public schools and protect our children’s innocence while fighting to give families real educational freedom through school choice,” Jones said.

“Carla is a genuine conservative with Pennsylvania roots and Pennsylvania values – and a record of public service in defense of those values,” said Jones. “That’s why faith leaders are concluding that Carla is not just right on the issues – she is the best candidate to run and win this November.”

Disney Stock Plummets -30%: Boycott Child Grooming

By The Geller Report

Dump your stock. Take the kids to Dollywood. Unsubscribe to Disney plus. These cretins are sexually grooming your kids. Protect the children. Do not support sexualizing children.

Or down over the past 6 months

— John Wick (@JohnbabaykaWick) April 12, 2022

NEW: Disney corporate president Karey Burke, the “mother of two queer children,” says the company has been “targeting Gen Z and millennials” with LGBTQIA+ “inclusion” content. Her son told her that “Gen Z is 30-40% queerer” and that Disney “better get with it.”

— Christopher F. Rufo ⚔️ (@realchrisrufo) April 7, 2022

In recent weeks, Disney has been emerging as an increasingly vocal activist for the LGBTQ+ agenda.

Disney’s CEO Bob Chapek has argued that Disney is simply seeking more diversity because it is good for business.

In that light, Chapek apologized to the LGBTQ+ community “for not being the ally you needed me to be,” and pledged to be a better ally, in a new video that journalist Christopher Rufo tweeted.

Chapek said that he is working with the “LGBTQIA+ Advisory Council” to discern different suggestions about how to take action to help the LGBTQ+ community.

He added that “words are not enough so we are taking some actions now.”

“I want you to know that your words have made a real impact on me,” he said. “I understand that we have made mistakes, and the pain that those mistakes have caused.”

“I and the leadership team are determined to use this moment as a catalyst for meaningful and lasting change,” Chapek added.

Disney has continued to insist that there is a growing queerness in our culture that now must be catered to in entertainment.

Karey Burke, head of entertainment, said that her son had told her: “Gen-Z is 30-40 percent queerer than the other generations Mom, so Disney better get with it,” the Daily Mail reported.

NEW: Disney corporate president Karey Burke, the “mother of two queer children,” says the company has been “targeting Gen Z and millennials” with LGBTQIA+ “inclusion” content. Her son told her that “Gen Z is 30-40% queerer” and that Disney “better get with it.”

— Christopher F. Rufo ⚔️ (@realchrisrufo) April 7, 2022

Disney keeps pushing the envelope beyond just verbal support of the LGBTQ+ agenda, though, as Chapek said they would.

The entertainment giant also announced to its employees that they have a new benefits program that will allow employees and their families to access gender reassignment surgeries or hormone usage, the Post Millennial reported.

“The other big area is gender identity and expression. So doing all of this work to ensure that our employees and cast can express their gender here authentically and proudly at the company. So, you know, coming up with guides on how to change your photo information about pronouns, working with our benefits team to give information about gender affirmation procedures, both for our employees who are transitioning and trans, but also our employees who have kids who are transitioning,” a man explained in a video of a Disney internal meeting, that journalist Christopher Rufo then tweeted.

NEW: Disney has adopted a benefits program to assist employees and their minor children with “gender affirmation procedures.” This type of treatment typically includes puberty blockers, breast removal, and genital surgeries for “kids who are transitioning.”

— Christopher F. Rufo ⚔️ (@realchrisrufo) April 7, 2022

Disney’s strong stance has come particularly to light after Florida passed the Parental Rights in Education bill (which critics inaccurately call the “Don’t Say Gay” bill). The bill prohibits Florida teachers from teaching about sexual orientation to children in kindergarten through third grade.

Disney blatantly declared that they opposed this bill and would try to overturn it, CNBC News reported.

Since then, Disney has grown bolder in its stance of allying with the LGBTQ+ community and more evidence has been published about just how the corporation is planning to do that.

Either through catering to LGBTQ+ employees, or featuring more trans and gay characters in its content, Disney is acting on its promise.

For instance, Disney, alongside three other media corporations, announced that it will air a new public service announcement from GLAAD that will feature a transgender teen and will call for nationwide support for LGBTQ+ youth, CNBC News reported.

Chapek was serious when he announced that Disney would be taking more action.

“By now, I hope you have all read my most recent note in which I pledged to be a better ally for the LGBTQ+ community; apologized for not being the ally you needed me to be; and committed to ensuring that our company lives up to its values,” Chapek said in the video. “I meant every word.”

California: Muslim tries to join ISIS, says he’d try again if acquitted, gets 20 years thumbnail

California: Muslim tries to join ISIS, says he’d try again if acquitted, gets 20 years

By Jihad Watch

He might have had a better chance of being acquitted if he had worked harder to fool the infidel authorities, telling them that he now realized that ISIS was un-Islamic and all the other nonsense that we so often hear from jihadis in court. And those infidel authorities are so ignorant, and so very eager to be fooled. But Augustine was honest with them, and will have a few years in prison at least to think about that and work on his prison dawah.

California man who tried to join ISIS sentenced to 20 years

by Gabrielle Fonrouge, New York Post, April 7, 2022:

California man who tried to join ISIS and wanted to encourage more English speakers to be part of the terror group was sentenced to 20 years behind bars, Brooklyn federal prosecutors announced.

Bernard Augustine, 25, represented himself during his one-week trial in August and told jurors that if he was acquitted, he’d try once again to join the terror group, prosecutors said after his Wednesday sentencing….

Around the time Augustine turned 18 while living in Keyes, a small rural community outside of Modesto, he made plans to travel in February 2016 to Tunisia from San Francisco with the goal of joining ISIS across the border in Libya.

In the months leading up to his trip, Augustine spent time watching ISIS propaganda videos that glorified the terror group’s violence and googling questions like “how to safely join ISIS,” prosecutors said.

The wannabe terrorist also visited websites on the ISIS recruitment process, including one titled: “How does a Westerner join ISIS? Is there a recruitment or application process?”

Augustine went through with his February 2016 trip to Tunisia, but before he could cross the border into Libya, he was detained for two years and then returned to the US in 2018.

During his trial, Augustine testified that he still wanted to join ISIS and described videos of the group beheading Syrian captives as “good” and “really cool.” He said he intended to help the group by providing English-language voiceovers for their propaganda videos.

Prosecutors asked him to confirm testimony he gave that he “would do it all again and would go back today” if given the chance and Augustine replied, “No, tomorrow, when they let me off.”…

Biden’s Secret Service Agents Bribed by Jihadis with Iran and Pakistan Visas Pose as DHS Agents thumbnail

Biden’s Secret Service Agents Bribed by Jihadis with Iran and Pakistan Visas Pose as DHS Agents

By The Geller Report

Four Secret Service employees who were special agents to the Bidens are entangled in an alleged bribery scheme carried out by two Muslim men accused of masquerading as Department of Homeland Security law enforcement agents , reports Real Clear Politics.

#Breaking Prosecutors say one of the men arrested for impersonating federal agents had visas to Pakistan and Iran and claimed a connection to Pakistani intel agency ISI. @wusa9

— Bruce Leshan (@BruceLeshan) April 7, 2022

But no one in the media is asking about the motive.

When investigators searched the defendants’ apartments, they found a drone, handguns, ammunition, bullet-proof body armor, gas masks, zip ties, handheld radios, body cameras, binoculars, a high-powered telescope, and four laptop computers. They also discovered what appeared to be official DHS patches and training manuals, scopes for weapons, components of disassembled rifles, and a list of every resident of the apartment complex.”The FBI has arrested Arian Taherzadeh, 40, and Haider Ali, who posed as Homeland Security agents for years, using their false identities to get close to actual law enforcement officials, including a Secret Service agent assigned to the detail of First Lady Jill Biden.

An affidavit filed Wednesday night in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. revealed that one of the Secret Service agents involved in the bribery scheme was a special agent assigned to First Lady Jill Biden’s protective detail. Another was a Uniformed Division officer at the White House.

Taherzadeh and Ali allegedly obtained guns and assault rifles used by federal law enforcement agencies, as well as items carrying the insignias of those agencies.

Prosecutors say that they went so far to recruit someone to be an “employee of DHS” and “serve on their task force,” and subjected that person to what appears to be a painful hazing ritual.

“As part of the ‘recruitment process’ Taherzadeh and Ali required that the “applicant” be shot with an Airsoft rifle to evaluate their pain tolerance and reaction,” the affidavit says. “Subsequent to being shot, the applicant was informed that their hiring was in process.”

That applicant was “assigned” to conduct research on someone who “provided support to the Department of Defense and intelligence community,” the affidavit says…. more

RealClearPolitics has learned that another Secret Service special agent involved in the alleged bribery is assigned to President Biden’s detail, those agents who accompany the president nearly everywhere he goes and stand by his side during the most sensitive of discussions and private moments. A second Uniformed Division officer caught up in the bizarre scheme was assigned to protect Vice President Harris’s residence, according to sources familiar with the matter.

Daniel Greenfield nails it:

The strangest part of this story is why no one in the media is asking about the motive.

Two men were arrested in Washington DC Wednesday for pretending to be federal operatives who gifted Secret Service agents with lavish handouts in an effort to gain access to them

Why did they want to gain access to them?

People do this kind of thing to gain access to politicians or to decisionmakers, they don’t do it to gain access to protective detail people.

Arian Taherzadeh, 40, and Haider Ali, 36 posed as members of a fake Department of Homeland Security task force investigating violence connected to the Jan. 6, 2021 riot at the US Capitol, the feds said.

Taherzadeh is an Iranian last name. Haider Ali would also seem to come from a background that implies a Muslim country. Their religion obviously isn’t stated or commented on, but raises questions. They are at the very least from Muslim-origin countries. Shouldn’t that trigger some inquiries?

The suspects allegedly set up the ruse to ingratiate themselves with Secret Service agents, who they supplied with rent-free luxury apartments, high-end electronics and policing equipment.

One of the duped agents worked on first lady Jill Biden’s security detail and was offered a $2,000 assault rifle from Taherzadeh, according to prosecutors.

In another instance, the suspects allegedly supplied an agent with a penthouse apartment that was rented for more than $40,000 a year.

Where were they getting all this money and what was in it for them? Why throw a $2K rifle at a secret service agent working a security detail?

Questions no one in the media seems to even admit are there.

Secret Service Agents bribed by men with Iran, Pakistan visas pretending to be DHS Agents

By: Sara Carter Staff, April 8, 2022:

Four secret Service employees who were special agents to the Bidens are “entangled in an alleged bribery scheme carried out by two men accused of masquerading as Department of Homeland Security law enforcement agents” , reports Real Clear Politics.

Two men impersonating DHS agents allegedly attempted to bribe the four members of the Secret Service. In an affidavit, the FBI said the men “have been pretending to be DHS agents from as early as February until their arrest and noted that they carried insignias and firearms used by federal agents as part of that deception. The goal was to ‘ingratiate themselves with members of the federal law enforcement and the defense community.”

The men accused of bribery are Arian Taherzadeh and Haider Ali, both U.S. citizens with passports and visas to Iran and Pakistan who appear to have targeted an apartment complex which is home to many law enforcement employees from the Secret Service and Department of Homeland Security.

Real Clear Politics reports Taharzadeh and Ali “seemed to have control of five apartments. When investigators searched the defendants’ apartments, they found a drone, handguns, ammunition, bullet-proof body armor, gas masks, zip ties, handheld radios, body cameras, binoculars, a high-powered telescope, and four laptop computers. They also discovered what appeared to be official DHS patches and training manuals, scopes for weapons, components of disassembled rifles, and a list of every resident of the apartment complex.”

Their cover was blown when a U.S. postal inspector responded to the apartment complex to investigate an alleged assault on a letter carrier. During the investigation, the inspector spoke with Taherzadeh and Ali, who gave them wild tales about being investigators with the U.S. Special Police investigation Unit and “deputized special police” with the city of Washington.

It was revealed in an affidavit filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. that one of the agents caught up in the bribery scheme was a special agent assigned to First Lady Jill Biden’s protective detail. A second agent was a Uniformed Division officer at the White House.

A third Secret Service special agent is assigned to President Biden’s detail, Real Clear Politics learned. The agent’s position puts him at the President’s side “nearly everywhere he goes and stands by his side during the most sensitive of discussions and private moments.”

The fourth agent, a second Uniformed Division officer, was assigned to protect Vice President Harris’s residence. Real Clear Politics details the bribery accusations:

According to court filings, one of the more troubling details of the case involves Taherzadah allegedly offering to give an assault rifle worth $2,000 to the Secret Service agent assigned to Jill Biden. The filing also says that Taherzadeh lent what he described as a “government vehicle” to the same Secret Service agent’s wife and also gave her a generator.

Taherzadeh is also accused of giving members of the Secret Service, as well as a legitimate DHS employee, “rent-free apartments (with a total yearly rent of over $40,000 per apartment), iPhones, surveillance systems, a drone, a flat-screen television, a case for storing an assault rifle, a generator and law enforcement paraphernalia,” the filing states. Prosecutors say one of the agents who received the free rent and additional gifts is the Uniformed Division officer assigned to the White House.

That agent lived rent-free in a three-bedroom apartment that generally would rent for $48,000 annually, the filing said. It was located at the same complex where Taherzadeh lived. Prosecutors said he was tricked into believing accepting the free rent wouldn’t raise ethics or conflict of interest issues because Taherzadeh told the agent that a division of DHS “had approved extra rooms as part of his operations, and that [agent] could live in one of them for free.”

“The investigation confirmed that there are no such [DHS] operations, and it authorized no such expense,” the filing said.

Disney corporate president says next generation ‘queerer,’ company must ‘get with it’

Disney corporate president talked about targeting younger viewers

By Timothy Nerozzi, FOX Business, April 9, 2022:

FOX Business host gives his take on the company’s reaction to the Parental Rights in Education Bill on ‘Making Money.’

Disney corporate President Karey Burke told company staff that Generation Z is “30-40% queerer” than previous generations, according to video of a company video call.

“As my son texted me this morning, Gen Z is 30-40% queerer than other generations,” Burke said on the video call, published by writer Christopher F. Rufo. “So Disney better get with it.”

“When I was at Freeform, it was very much in the brand ethos to be the tip of the spear when it comes to inclusion,” Burke explained earlier on the same call. Freeform is a cable television channel owned by the Disney corporation.

“In part, I think nobody stopped us because we were targeting Gen Z and millennials. We were targeting younger and more open-minded …,” Burke added before cutting herself off.

Burke said in another video that she would like to see at least 50% of Disney’s characters in the future identify as LGBT or as a racial minority.

The in-house videos of Disney pushing the progressive agenda come after some Disney employees walked off the job last week protesting a perceived lack of company opposition to a Florida bill that prohibits teachers from providing instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity in kindergarten through third-grade classrooms.

White House Vows To Punish States Who Oppose Child Sex Reassignment Surgery, Puberty Blockers (VIDEO) thumbnail

White House Vows To Punish States Who Oppose Child Sex Reassignment Surgery, Puberty Blockers (VIDEO)

By Dr. Rich Swier

The Democrat regime is officially the pro-pedophilia party.

Alfred Kinsey’s ongoing sexual anarchy campaign has no end in sight.

Matt Barber, associate dean of the Liberty University School of Law, and I attended the “B4U-ACT” pedophile conference Aug. 17. To eliminate the “stigma” against pedophiles, this growing sexual anarchist lobby wants the American Psychiatric Association (APA) to redefine pedophilia as a normal sexual orientation of “Minor-Attracted Persons.”

Adhering to the Kinsey principle of lulling “straights” into a false sense of security, pedophile dress was largely conservative – short hair, jackets, some ties and few noticeable male ear piercings.

Matt Barber and I sat in the back of the meeting room among roughly 50 activists and their “mental health” attending female enablers. “Pedophilia, Minor-Attracted Persons, and the DSM: Issues and Controversies,” keynoted “Fred Berlin, M.D., Ph.D., as founder, National Institute for the Study, Prevention and Treatment of Sexual Trauma; Johns Hopkins Sexual Disorders Clinic.”

However, the sex clinic was initially founded by John Money, Ph.D., to give judges “leeway” to keep child molesters out of jail. Money (deceased), a pedophile advocate, also called for an end to all age-of-consent laws. Dr. Berlin was his disciple.

In 1973, our “post Kinsey era,” a small APA committee of psychiatrists, quite terrified by homosexist public harassment, agreed to rely on Kinsey’s fraudulent human sexuality “data” to redefine homosexuality as normal, removing it from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) of mental disorders.

The APA decision was hyped in college textbooks, law journal articles, judicial rulings, and by 1974 pitched as high-school sex education. Soon the homosexist lobby would sail into primary schools and kindergartens by agitating recurring AIDS “prevention,” “bullying” and “hate” panics.

To redefine homosexuality as a normal “orientation,” nature not nurture, researchers were told to ignore all data of early sex abuse or other trauma. This hoax was followed by the 1999 U.S. Department of Justice data that found 64 percent of forcible sodomy victims to be boys under age 12.

For after claiming 10 percent to 37 percent of men were sometime homosexual, Kinsey also said children are sexual from birth and so deserve to have sex with adults or youths (taught as a 1974 Planned Parenthood sex ed doctrine).

The APA path to pedophile norms follows the success of the homosexual anarchy campaign. Arguably, the pedophile media lobby directed the passionate boy-boy kisses on the TV series “Glee,” to enable fellow “Minor-Attracted Persons” to increasingly be seen as a boy’s sex “friend.”

B4U-ACT claims to “help mental health professionals learn more about attraction to minors and to consider the effects of stereotyping, stigma, and fear.” While the group claimed they want to teach pedophiles “how to live life fully and stay within the law,” no one suggested how to stop their child lust or molestation.

Barber asked what “age of consent” the group proposed and what role pornography plays as a causative factor in child sex abuse. No one would answer the first question, and all denied any harm from pornography.

Arguably, due to our presence, Dr. Berlin (who sat next to me during the entire event) admitted that occasionally pornography could trigger sexual acting out. He also expressed a personal belief that pre-pubescent children (that is, under about age 10) cannot consent, and that perhaps even teenagers might be sexually vulnerable.

All speakers focused on pedophiles as healthy, normal and unfairly victimized by stigma and mean words. Following repeated assertions that pedophiles never force children, are gentle and loving, one researcher did cite a child “victim” who was raped and sodomized.

One speaker laughingly compared doing an obscene act “on” a child to doing the same obscene act on a shoe. No one protested, and some chuckled. One young female suggested pedophiles might be helped by engaging in “sex play” using naked pictures of pseudo children, allied with some sadism, bridal gowns, etc. This Ph.D. social worker candidate proudly noted her objection to any “repression.”

For their attendance, the pedophile political activists could earn 6.0 units of continuing education credits by the “Maryland Board of Social Work Examiners.” These 12 board members credentialed this pedophile academic farce, giving higher education credits to allow felons and near-felons to advance their child sexual abuse agenda by using bogus and fraudulent research. I would encourage people to complain to the board at this link.

Committed to quietly monitoring this meeting, I offered a few unwelcome closing remarks. I noted the arrogance of this group’s conclusion that Americans’ fear for child safety is due to a puritanical “sex panic.” Since the Department of Justice found 58,200 children kidnapped by non-family members in 1999, such fear seems well-placed.

Before leaving the issue of stigma and hate speech, note a few excerpts from BOYCHAT April 15 by some of these “social worker” credentialed pedophiles:

“Judith Reisman” is “with the worst of them … dehumanizing hate speech … extreme christian [sic], right wing … alarmist … creating gross distrotions [sic] … no genuine integrity … a harlot. … Judith did, in fact, make [Kinsey’s sexual stimulation of infants and toddlers] sound like horrendously violent, child sexual assault … [she is a] horrible, wretched scumbag … pathetic, sorry excuse for a human being. … The world will become a less wretched place, the second Judith Reisman drops dead [from natural causes, of course, though I’d not complain if she got accidentally ran over by a semi]. … With Love, Stevie-D.”

Love? What was that about stigma and hate speech?
