House Passes ‘LGBTQ’ Equality Act Despite Serious Concerns Over Its Constitutionality Relating to Religious Liberty

(Christian News)  The Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives passed the controversial Equality Act in a 224-206 vote on Thursday despite growing concerns over how the legislation would affect religious liberty, women’s sports, as well as other concerns. The bill now heads to the Senate for consideration.

The Equality Act’s passage included the support of three Republicans, including Reps. Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania and John Katko and Tom Reed of New York, who joined the Democratic majority in voting to pass the bill. Continue reading

Mandatory Vaccinations Arrive in UK

The lioness in me is already up on her haunches, ready to defend her cubs to the death. I want to roar in the faces of the authorities until their hair singes off at the roots: ’Get your hands off my kids. They are not part of your freaky social experiment and they are never going to be!’

(Katie Hopkins – Frontpage Magazine)  For once in our lives we Brits have made it to the top of a league table, but for all the wrong reasons.

According to academic types at the University of Oxford, Brits are enduring the sixth strictest lockdown in the world and the second harshest in Europe.,,, Continue reading

Citing Wikipedia’s capture by the left, site’s co-founder launching free-speech-friendly competitor

(Carrie Sheffield – Just the News)  A co-founder of Wikipedia is launching a competing website as a free-speech-friendly alternative to what he views as the increasingly monolithic left-wing bias of his former organization.

Last May, Wikipedia co-founder Larry Sanger wrote an op-ed on his personal website titled “Wikipedia is Badly Biased” claiming that Wikipedia’s neutrality policy — known as  “NPOV,” or neutral point of view — “is dead.” Continue reading

Why You Probably Don’t Need a Quiet Time

You’ve always believed you should have what evangelicals commonly call a “quiet time.” Sometimes called “daily devotions,” a quiet time typically consists of Bible reading and prayer. Beyond these, the event can be highly individualized in terms of timing, duration, location, and content. Many add meditation on Scripture to their reading of it. Others will include some form of journaling. Some will append a brief devotional reading from another book. Generally, the goal is to feed the soul and commune with God.

Lately, however, your devotional habits have languished. In light of the struggle, privately you’ve been doing a little spiritual cost/benefit analysis about the whole enterprise. Continue reading

In Rush Limbaugh, We Have Lost an American Genius

“He grew increasingly frustrated that the naïve Right never fully understood the mind of the Left. In groundhog day fashion, conservatives, he felt, became shocked on cue that any means were not just necessary for the Left, but ethically justified—given its ends were global justice delivered by supposed moral superiors.” 

(Victor Davis Hanson – American Greatness) Rush Limbaugh created modern national talk radio as we now know it—from nothing. For over three decades he kept at rapt attention weekdays—live from noon to three—the largest conservative audience in broadcast history. Over 15 million tuned in each week.

Last week—32 years, and over 23,000 hours of on-air commentary after Rush went national in August 1988—he is gone, at 70 years young. Continue reading

Charismatic Prophet Jeremiah Johnson Suspends All Online Ministry After Visitation from Jesus

Before we get to Protestia’s piece, you should know that Jeremiah Johnson is one of many so-called NAR prophets who predicted falsely that Donald Trump would win the presidency. The NAR maintain that they are modern day “apostles” and “prophets.” People who are involved in this movement place a greater emphasis on dreams, visions and extra-biblical revelation than they do on the scriptures. Many leaders in this cult, yes, it’s a cult, declare that they experience visits by angels, some of them even claim they’ve had face-to-face conversations with the Lord Jesus. According to John MacArthur the NAR “is a rapidly expanding movement being generated by some of the same old troubling false teachers and false leaders that have been around in Charismania for decades, always dishonoring the Holy Spirit, always dishonoring the Scripture, always claiming miracle signs, wonders, visions, dreams.”

Now to Protestia’s piece: Continue reading

Transgender HHS Nominee Twice Refuses to Say If Minors Should Be Making Sex-Change Decisions

“Do you support the government intervening to override the parent’s consent to give a child puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and/or amputation surgery of breasts and genitalia? You have said that you’re willing to accelerate the protocols for street kids.”

(Susan Jones – CNS News)  Unafraid to address the transgender issue staring lawmakers in the face, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Thursday asked Dr. Rachel Levine (nee Richard) if she believes “minors are capable of making such a life-changing decision as changing one’s sex.” Continue reading

Tucker Carlson’s ‘Disinformation’ Monologue Triggers the Left Big Time – Now Watch Them Fall Into His Trap and Respond With Disinformation

(Victoria Taft – PJ Media) Tucker Carlson sits in his Dr. Evil ox chair at his Fox News hidey hole and looses his mind to come up with inventive new ideas to make CNN hosts apoplectic. Little finger resting on his lip, he squints his eyes and plots ways to trigger them with logic, facts, and ideas. It’s very effective. They wet themselves with regularity. Clean up on aisle 404.

Carlson’s segment on who’s spewing disinformation is the latest in a long line of subjects upon which CNN hosts and the rest of the Left are confounded. Continue reading

House Dems Want Biden’s Finger Off the Nuclear Button

(Jim Treacher – PJ Media) Remember the ever-looming threat of nuclear war? Back when I was a kid, I was terrified of it. Everybody was. We were all worried that Reagan was gonna go crazy and nuke the Russkies. (“We begin bombing in five minutes!”) Hollywood cranked out stuff like Special Bulletin  and The Day After WarGames and Miracle Mile and lots of other movies that reflected America’s fears of nuclear armageddon. They’re still making Terminator and Mad Max movies, decades after that original impetus faded. Back then, it just seemed inevitable. Like the man sang: “Everybody’s got a bomb, we could all die any day.” Continue reading

Once-secret FBI informant reports reveal wider-ranging operation to spy on Trump campaign

“But the memos’ most explosive revelations are the sheer breadth of the FBI’s insufficiently predicated dragnet targeting the Trump campaign, and the agents’ clearly stated purpose of thwarting any Trump campaign effort to get dirt from Russia that could hurt his Democratic rival.”

(John Solomon – Just the News)  Once-secret reports show the FBI effort to spy on the Trump campaign was far wider than previously disclosed, as agents directed an undercover informant to make secret recordings, pressed for intelligence on numerous GOP figures, and sought to find “anyone in the Trump campaign” with ties to Russia who could acquire dirt “damaging to Hillary Clinton.” Continue reading

Voddie Baucham Having Heart Surgery Today

“Please pray for the @mayoclinic team that will do the work. Please pray for my dear wife. She has had to watch me go through one traumatic event after another, including two cardiac events this week that set off alarms and brought the entire staff running into my room to intervene (crash cart and all!)”

(Protestia)  Voddie Baucham is scheduled to have surgery this morning at 11:00am to repair his heart and “give it a chance to ‘remodel’” according to a post to his social media. Continue reading

What The Biden Administration’s ‘Equality Act’ Would Do

 “An individual shall not be denied access to a shared facility, including a restroom, a locker room and a dressing room, that is in accordance with the individual’s gender identity.”

(Ryan T. Anderson – The Heidelblog)  Witness the so-called Equality Act, which candidate Biden vowed to make a priority and which is set to be voted on by the House this week. What’s the Equality Act? And who could be against equality? Don’t let the name fool you. Continue reading

Dr. Michael Brown – False Prophets are not False if They Were Sincere When They Prophesied Falsely

“Your notions are not only fanciful but they are heretical. Here is today’s deep theology. You cannot be a saved, blood bought believer in Jesus Christ and then proceed to lie about hearing from Him. Here is the fundamental error that Brown and Charismania constantly live under. They believe there is a difference between someone’s intent, and the eventual outcome.” 

(Anthony Wade – 828 Ministries) As the dust has settled over Charismania in the wake of nearly every false prophet being exposed in this past election, we see those who are gatekeepers still trying to hold the line. Dr. Michael Brown is one of the primary gatekeepers of both the NAR and false teaching/prophesy network that is the money spigot that makes Charismania the billion-dollar industrial complex it is today….

After Nearly Two Years, Gay-Affirming Southern Baptist Church Finally Booted from Denomination

(Reformation  Charlotte)  Nearly two years ago, Reformation Charlotte broke the news that a Southern Baptist church in Georgia had opened its doors of membership to openly gay, practicing homosexuals. Towne View Baptist Church in Kennesaw, GA is led by Jim Conrad who preached a sermon in August 2019 stating that his church would no longer follow the biblical mandate on human sexual morality and instead, it would affirm homosexuals and give them full membership.

Barack Obama’s Six Most Impeachable Offenses

Sens. Charles Grassley and Lindsey Graham saw right through the smokescreen. “Despite your claim that President Obama repeatedly told Mr. Comey to proceed ‘by the book,’ ” the good senators responded to [Susan] Rice upon discovering the email, “substantial questions have arisen about whether officials at the FBI, as well as at the Justice Department and the State Department, actually did proceed ‘by the book.’ ”

(Jack Cashill – American Spectator)  Now that we have established that even ex-presidents can be tried in the Senate, the time may be right for a fresh look at ex-President Barack Obama’s presidential crimes and misdemeanors. To get the tumbrils rolling, let me suggest the following six areas of investigation, ranked from probably worthy of impeachment to possibly worthy of imprisonment. Continue reading

Have You Seen the Insane Hillsong Church 2020 Christmas Video?! Well You Have Now!

(Protestia)  Hillsong Church is no stranger to controversy when it comes to their Christmas productions, most of which feature lascivious displays of writhing flesh and poor choices, resulting in Hillsong frequently deleting the videos so as to avoid criticism.

In other years, we have reported on a Hillsong production depicting Jesus born in a riotous bar, (since deleted) Hillsong’s sensuality Christmas show with fleshly dancers, the Hillsong show with women writhing in nothing but towels, and their infamous ‘Silent Night Sleazy Night’ Christmas special from several years ago. (also since deleted) Continue reading

Hero Liberal, Naomi Wolf, Goes on Tucker to Blast ‘Totalitarian’ COVID Policies

(Megan Fox – PJ Media)  Author Naomi Wolf might be the last true “liberal” in America. I never use the word “liberal” to describe the statist, pro-cancel-culture totalitarian left because the word doesn’t fit what they actually are. There’s nothing “liberal” about people who want to control every aspect of your life, including how much oxygen you can breathe in public. They are not “liberal” by any stretch of the imagination, nor do they support free speech as true liberals do. The American left cancels speech through firebombing or rioting or whatever other violent activities they regularly engage in to shut down free speech in America. (See any speech given by Ann Coulter or Milo Yiannopoulos on college campuses.) Continue reading

Justice Thomas Blisters Court on Rejecting Election Cases

(Eric Mack – Newsmax) After the Supreme Court turned away two Republican appeals over Pennsylvania’s mail-in ballot deadline changes, conservative Justice Clarence Thomas issued a blistering dissent against the decision to reject the case.

“One wonders what this Court waits for,” Justice Thomas wrote. “We failed to settle this dispute before the election, and thus provide clear rules. Now we again fail to provide clear rules for future elections. Continue reading

No Proof January 6 Was an ‘Armed Insurrection’

At least 100,000 attended Trump’s speech that day; fewer than 1,000 “stormed” the Capitol. A few hundred have been arrested and only 14 face weapons charges. Those “deadly and dangerous” weapons include two baseball bats, a can of pepper spray, a walking stick/stun gun, an axe, a few fire extinguishers…a helmet, a riot shield, and a collapsible baton. And at no time did this random weaponry pose a lethal threat to lawmakers inside the Capitol.

(Julie Kelly – American Greatness)  Since the Justice Department launched its nationwide manhunt to track down and arrest anyone involved with the Capitol breach on January 6, hundreds of perpetrators have been arrested. Continue reading

FCC Commissioner Blasts Democrats For Pressuring Providers To Drop Right-Wing News Orgs From Cable: ‘Chilling Transgression Of The Free Speech Rights’

“Are you planning to continue carrying Fox News, OANN and Newsmax on your platform both now and beyond the renewal date? If so, why?”

(Ryan Saavedra – Daily Wire)  Brandon Carr, one of four current FCC commissioners, slammed House Democrats in a statement on Monday afternoon for trying to crackdown on right-leaning television channels in response to the events that happened after the November elections, saying that Democrats were trying to stifle “political dissent.”

Democrat Reps. Anna G. Eshoo (CA) and Jerry McNerney (CA) wrote a letter to cable news providers and streaming platforms pressuring them on the issue of combatting “the spread of dangerous disinformation.”…. Continue reading

Meet the New President of the United States…Barack Obama

“…In his first two terms Obama tried his best to destroy the economy, high-paying jobs, healthcare, the US energy industry, the great American middle class, our relationship with Israel, American exceptionalism, and capitalism itself. He damaged us badly, but he fell short.”

(Wayne Allyn Root)  I’ve written thousands of columns and commentaries. This is the most important I’ve ever written.

This is my chance to play the modern-day version of Paul Revere. “The commies are coming. The commies are coming.” Yes, I am reporting a communist takeover. But the leader of this attack is not who it appears to be. Continue reading

Voddie Baucham Medical Update ‘I was Within an Hour or so of Death’

(Protestia)  Voddie Baucham has provided another update from inside the Mayo Clinic, informing supporters and concerned believers that he is fine for now, with a “clear, aggressive, and promising treatment plan” in place, but that he almost didn’t make it, with the doctor who brought him in telling him he was “in the final stages of a catastrophic event, and within an hour or so of death.”

The beloved teacher and minister flew out from Zambia to the hospital in Florida last week, making a trek that involved a 16-hour flight, 5 layovers, cancelled flights, a once-in-a-lifetime snow storm, and tens of thousands of saints keeping him in prayer. Continue reading

After 20 Years in Politics, Here Are 20 Pieces of Political Advice for Conservatives

16) The nature of liberals: There is almost nothing a liberal is incapable of doing if you don’t have some kind of figurative stick to hit them with. Liberals don’t care about human decency, intellectual honesty, morality, the good of the country, the results of their programs, or the Constitution. What they do understand and care about is, “This may have negative consequences for me or liberalism.”  Remember that and act accordingly.

(John Hawkins) I have been in politics now since 2001 and I’ve done a lot in that time. My website Right Wing News was one of the 10,000 biggest websites in America, I was a social media consultant for Duncan Hunter’s presidential campaign, I’ve been one of the most-read conservative columnists in America (I’ve been published in Townhall, Human Events, PJ Media, National Review, Hot Air, Gateway Pundit, BizPac Review, the Western Journal, The Dispatch, The Daily Wire, and numerous other outlets)….

New Studies Suggest One COVID Vaccine Shot May Be Enough for Some Patients

(Bruce Carroll – PJ Media)  There has been some very good news this week about the prospects of returning back to normal from the COVID pandemic earlier than thought. The first ray of sunshine is that herd immunity may be just weeks away in the United States.

This morning comes news that one of the reasons we are speeding toward herd immunity is that the various COVID vaccines are providing enough protection with just one dose. Continue reading
