Security risks in the Senate

“Biden is also linked through his son Hunter to the Chinese communists, a story suppressed by Big Tech as people were voting in the U.S. This kind of censorship, now documented by Elon Musk, should be enough to declare the election anything but honest and fair.”

(Cliff Kincaid – RenewAmerica) Ex-communist and internal security expert Herb Romerstein was a walking encyclopedia of knowledge about the communist conspiracy. Although Herb passed away in 2013, we have Trevor Loudon to continue his work. His KeyWiki Internet encyclopedia brings everything we know about the communist conspiracy up to date, even with “Weekly Profiles” of communists, socialists, and subversives. In addition, he records films for Epoch TV and publishes books on the latest scandals, including Security Risk Senators, Parts One and Two. Continue reading

American Girl Book Promotes Puberty Blockers to Pre-Teens: ‘More Time to Think About Your Gender Identity’

“If you don’t have an adult you trust, there are organizations across the country that can help you. Turn to the resources on page 95 for more information,” The American Girl company is facing outrage over a book that promotes transgenderism to young girls.”

(Nick Gilbertson – Breitbart) The American Girl company, renowned for its dolls that young girls have adored for generations, published the book titled A Smart Girl’s Guide: Body Image in paperback this past February, and its contents have parents irate. Continue reading

‘Transitioning’ Kids: Your Tax Dollars at Work

“The Biden administration is planning to force doctors to perform “sex changes” and other “transition”-related surgeries, and the American taxpayer will fund it. It’s no wonder, then, that “gender clinics” have been popping up around the country. After all, enticing children to undergo gender-transition surgery is lucrative big business these days.”

(Brian Mark Webber – The Patriot Post) We all grumble about paying taxes — at least those of us who pay them. In the end, however, we dutifully send our money to the IRS each paycheck or each spring in the hope that the fruit of our labor will result in paved roads, safe bridges, and a sufficiently funded military. Continue reading

Heresy: Antinomianism

It is a remarkable fact that all the heresies which have arisen in the Christian Church have had a decided tendency to dishonor God and to flatter man. ~ Charles Spurgeon

(The Dissenter) Antinomianism is a heresy that has been present in various forms throughout the history of Christianity. At its core, antinomianism is the belief that believers are not bound by moral law, and that they are exempt from following God’s commands. This belief is in direct opposition to the teachings of the Bible, which clearly state that believers are to obey God’s law and follow his commands. Continue reading

Sen. Ron Johnson Hosts Historic Round Table Discussion on COVID Vaccines with Prominent Doctors Including Drs. McCullough, Malone, Cole, Risch, and Others

Dr. James Thorp, a board-certified OB/GYN said, “What I have seen in my clinical practice has been a substantial increase of infertility, miscarriage, fetal death & fetal malformation.”

“Human rights and vaccine attorney Aaron Siri discussed the CDC data on vaccine risk and impact. He said that a staggering 25% missed work and had some serious event affecting their normal lives and needed emergency care or were hospitalized, and another 40% sought urgent care.”

(Jim Hoft – Gateway Pundit) On Wednesday, Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) hosted a roundtable discussion with prominent doctors to expose the dangers of the experimental mRNA Covid vaccine. Continue reading

Anthony Fauci’s Omerta

“Robert F Kennedy Jr documented this in The Real Anthony Fauci where he described Fauci’s personal affinity for Mario Puzo’s The Godfather, which was publicly seen when Cuomo compared the two of them to Al Pacino’s signature character. Yet the final book published by Puzo, posthumously, was Omerta. In the mafia, this means refusal to cooperate or lend admission with authorities or outsiders unto death, a code of silence.”

(Ray Fava – Evangelical Dark Web) Missouri v Biden is the most important lawsuit initiated in 2022. Helmed by Trump-endorsed Senator-Elect Eric Schmitt, the outgoing AG of Missouri, and the Louisiana AG Jeff Landry, the initiative has been undertaken to sue the Biden Administration over its collusion and coercion efforts to censor so-called misinformation pertaining to Covid and lockdowns, Hunter Biden’s laptop and election fraud. The filing argues that the First Amendment cannot be circumvented through collusion or coercion of social media companies to censor undesired speech. Continue reading

Kirk Cameron Request for Story-Hour Time Rejected by 50 Public Libraries

“We are a very queer-friendly library. Our messaging does not align.”

(Protestia) Kirk Cameron has been shut down by more than 50 public libraries who have rebuffed his attempts to put on a “story hour program” in the promotion and sharing of his new book As you Grow, according to his publisher Brave Books.

Cameron’s publisher told Fox News “Many of the same libraries that won’t give Cameron a slot, however, are actively offering ‘drag queen’ story hours or similar programs for kids and young people.”… Continue reading

The Christian Hip-Hop Scene Looks No Different Than the Pagan Hip-Hop Scene and is Largely Intertwined

(The Dissenter) Lest you think I’m picking on hip-hop, I’ve written plenty on the Contemporary Christian Rock movement and the charismatic movement as well. But there is a particular grievance with hip-hop culture that appears to have carried over and is inexcusable. It’s the fact that the “gangsta” lifestyle that hip-hop was born out of doesn’t seem to be removed from the “Christian” version of it. In fact, with the majority of these “Christian” hip-hop artists, the only difference in their life and music is that they throw in a “Jesus” here and there. Continue reading

It Begins: County Council in Oxfordshire, England, Edges Toward Restrictions On Residents Travel ‘For the Planet’

(Margaret Flavin – Gateway Pundit) COVID Passports were a dream come true for those trying to restrict the free travel of citizens.

And now, the County Council in Oxfordshire, England has another scheme ahead.  It has approved plans to begin ‘trial’ climate restrictions using traffic filter permits to restrict the amount of driving area residents can do.

Vision News reports: Continue reading

New Clinical Guidance Offers Therapeutic Alternative To ‘Affirming’ Gender Dysphoric Youth

Father injecting his child with puberty blockers.

“The international authorities that have departed from the gender-affirming model of care were outlined in the guide. After conducting systematic reviews of the evidence for the use of puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones in treating pediatric gender dysphoria, health authorities in Sweden, Finland, and England have decided to abandon the “gender-affirming” model, finding the costs far outweigh the benefits.”

(Christina Buttons – Daily Wire) A network of mental health professionals wrote a new clinical guide for adolescents struggling with gender dysphoria, offering an “exploratory” alternative to “affirming” a minor’s chosen transgender identity. Continue reading

Restaurant Refuses to Serve Christian Group, Citing Staff ‘Safety’ and ‘Dignity’

“We have always refused service to anyone for making our staff uncomfortable or unsafe and this was the driving force behind our decision.” 

(Selwyn Duke – The New American) Canceling a scheduled event at the very last minute simply because you don’t like the group that booked it doesn’t sound like a display of dignity. Nonetheless, protecting “dignity” was one of the reasons a Richmond, Virginia, restaurant cited when doing just that after learning that it would be serving a pro-life Christian organization that opposes same-sex “marriage.” Continue reading

What Americans Must Do to Stop the Great Reset

“Now is the time to organize, plan, and get vocal.  Now is the time to peacefully and legally push back and push back hard against the narrative.”

(Mark Schwendau) There was a very good article posted online earlier this year titled “11 things you can do to help stop the great reset”. The article was posted to a website that should be getting greater following these days, StoppingSocialism.com.  The article was written by Justin Haskins, editor-in-chief of StoppingSocialism.com, a New York Times bestselling author, and the director of the Socialism Research Center at The Heartland Institute.

Is God Using Sexual Immorality to Separate the Sheep from the Goats?

“If you attend a church where people can openly support what the Bible calls an abomination and the church refuses to do anything about it, respectfully speak to the pastor or elders….”

(The Doctrinal Watchdog) The time has come to purify the bride of Christ.  Anyone supporting same-sex marriage legislation needs to be put under church discipline including pastors.

Back in 2019, some people (not us) were shocked when SBC president JD Greear preached a sermon from Romans chapter 1 where he concluded that Christians must be the fiercest supporters of gay rights…. Continue reading

Pastor David E. Taylor Claims Followers Can See Jesus and God the Father Face-to-Face at Zoom Conference

“But wait, there’s more! At this year’s conference, which can be viewed online only, Taylor says that he has “covenanted” with God to make big things happen.”

*Protestia) Pastor David E. Taylor is known for his name-it-and-claim-it faith-healing and prosperity gospel antics. The ministry of fleecing the desperate, ill, and elderly has been so good to Taylor that his ministry recently purchased an $8.3 million Tampa mansion. Taylor, who self-identifies as an “apostle”, claims that in 1997 he was “given the keys to the Kingdom of heaven by Jesus in a face-to-face appearance in a dream.”… Continue reading

Ex-Intelligence Officials Who Said Hunter Biden Laptop Story Was a Russian Operation Silent After Twitter Files Released

(Kristina Wong – Breitbart) Former top intelligence officials who signed an open letter suggesting the Hunter Biden laptop story was part of a Russian operation just weeks before the 2020 election were silent after internal Twitter emails acknowledged there was no evidence the story involved material that was illicitly obtained.

According to the New York Post — the outlet that broke the story in October 2020 — as reported on Saturday: Continue reading

Matt Chandler Returns to the Pulpit, Receives Standing Ovation + His Critics Go Nuts

“We’ve had our share of issues with Chandler in the past. We’ve been on the record saying that the leaky charismatic has been drifting for years (they cite several examples)…But this restoration? Nothing about the situation would indicate that it is not appropriate.”

(Protestia) Three months ago, it was announced that Lead Pastor Matt Chandler would be taking an indefinite leave of absence from preaching and teaching at The Village Church after it was revealed he was engaged in an inappropriate texting conversation with a woman not his wife, (the conversation, while not romantic or sexual, was described as “overly familiar” and involved “coarse and foolish jesting.” Continue reading

Progressives grumble as Respect for Marriage Act advances: ‘I hate the Senate bill’

“If the Respect for Marriage Act (RMA) passes, it would not go so far as to require states to permit same-sex marriages, which is what has some progressives disappointed.”

(Brianna Herliay – Fox News) Complaints from some progressive Democrats about the much-heralded Respect for Marriage Act are on the rise, as they realize that the legislation often labeled in the press as the “same-sex marriage” bill would not actually require states to recognize same-sex marriages. Continue reading

Rigorous international study of N95 masks upends federal COVID narrative

(Greg Piper – Just the News) The CDC took nearly two years to formally recognize distinctions between masks for mitigating COVID-19 spread, finally saying in January that cloth masks offer “the least” protection and N95 respirators, which meet strict federal standards, “the highest.”

The agency’s slight nod to the largely symbolic value of cloth masks, predominantly worn in school settings, followed months of calls by onetime White House COVID advisers, among others, to promote masks actually designed to stop aerosolized transmission. It also spurred a run on N95s, sending prices skyward. Continue reading

The Gospel Coalition Uses the Book of Ruth to Defend Same-Sex Civil Unions

“In the example of Ruth and Naomi how is that relationship enhanced or harmed by any external civil policy whatsoever? The idea of such a thing is smuggled into the conversation in an attempt to lend credence to its thesis. There’s no way anybody would ever find that there without this cultural corruption as a backdrop for doing so.”

(The Dissenter) In a recent article at The Gospel Coalition, Joe Carter, a co-pastor at David Platt’s McLean Bible Church and a former employee of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission attempts to argue from the Book of Ruth in favor of same-sex civil unions. Continue reading
