Tower of Babel 2023: Christian Nationalism Part 2 - A Leftist Narrative / Building a Brand
Last week we exposed the overarching connection between Christian Nationalism and a Globalist takeover. This week, we more deeply reveal the Christian Nationalism movement as the Progressive Left fabrication that it is and the reason they so desperately need to scapegoat Christians in particular.
It’s not exactly a news flash that our Judeo-Christian values upon which America was founded are under siege. What is difficult to grasp is that Christians who endeavor to live biblical values are being painted as enemies of the State under a movement called Christian Nationalism.
In Tower of Babel fashion, communication is blurred. God’s desires are being trampled. This article connects the dots between what the Left expresses (love, safety, security) and what they really want (oppression, tyranny, centralized control).
The more extreme the Left gets, the more ridiculous their agenda and antics seem to any sane individual.
Recent rainbow festivities on the White House lawn celebrated the codification of marriage to anyone, complete with interchangeable genders and lipstick on all the wrong faces. This scene has to be fiction, but it isn’t.
The Left will perpetrate anything on the American people that up-ends God and our country’s biblical values while bringing more power to Washington (and to the Globalist agenda).
Why? A vilification of our strong value system creates weakness among Christians and their churches, making it easier to enact more legislation against Christian values. (THINK: Hitler and the Jews) Weakness and fear (THINK: January 6) provide a red-carpet rollout for the Left to gain more centralized control in Washington (THINK: healthcare monopoly and COVID “vaccines”).
The Left scapegoats, but Christians remain the same God-fearing individuals we’ve always been. Christian Americans still stand peacefully and patriotically by their Christian values and their right to religious freedom afforded us by the First Amendment of our U.S. Constitution.
Nothing has changed except the expanding absurdity of the Left and their need to scapegoat Christians as hate mongers. Meanwhile, their intolerant, hate-mongering absurdities toward Christians never stop.
More absurd is that patriotic Christians who believe marriage is only between a man and a woman are standing in forced silence, thanks to biased media/social media networks in a country that is still, believe it or not, 63 percent Christian!
God asks Christians to stand for biblical truth. Same-sex relations and marriage are in the Bible, but as sins. To say that Christians who do not support sin are hateful is to say freedom of religion no longer exists. Now you are getting the picture. Crushing America’s right to freedom of religion is what the Left wants.
The Left is gaslighting Christians in an effort to destroy their freedoms. They even gaslight churches as a whole, saying they choose “hate rather than love” if they do not support same-sex marriage. This is a lie.
So it is that our freedom of religion as patriotic Christians in this country is being attacked daily. Christian Nationalism—the derogatory, scapegoating misnomer created by the Left—has been one of the most effective vehicles in driving oppression as well as framing Christians as hate mongers.
The accusations never stop because the Left has to keep “evil Christians” in the spotlight to continue building the “brand” in order to deepen the lines of division (Marxist intersectionality).
In Jonathan Cahn’s recent video, he directly addresses President Biden and asks him to repent. Cahn talks about the new assaults on Christians through radical abortion laws, same-sex marriage laws and the melding of terms like transphobia, homophobia, racism and antisemitism—all of which negatively frame Christians, chip away at our religious freedom and set the stage for future religious persecution of Christians and other dissenters.
On the abortion stage, Roe v. Wade has been repealed. What appeared to have been a victory for unwanted, unborn babies has backfired. Pro-choice states can now enact more radical abortion laws, and pro-life states will now have to accept abortion pills being sent across state lines via U.S. mail to anyone who asks.
If we, as Christians, speak out, the Left says we are evil Christian Nationalists trying to control women’s bodies. This claim obscures our real goal of saving the lives of tiny, unborn babies.
The Tower of Babel 2023 strikes again. Confusion from the lies the Left promotes, painting Christians as hateful, racist, homophobic Christian Nationalists instead of patriotic Christians supporting biblical values and enjoying freedom of religion in America, a freedom that has blessed our country so much through the many years.
Something is seriously wrong with this picture.
The Cornerstone Chapel in Virginia held a townhall meeting to educate its congregation and the world about the truth of what is happening in our country today with regard to the leftist’s derogatory term, Christian Nationalism. We need more of these meetings all across the United States!
Three speakers explained the truth behind the misnomer, each from a different vantage point.
1. January 6 had little or nothing to do with Christians. Not one photo sent by the national media to expert Mark David Hall showed evidence of Christians anywhere near the insurgency site. In fact, two of the five photos he received were shot from over a mile away. When he questioned that fact and objected, the media did not call back to interview him but proceeded full force into their Christian Nationalist/White Nationalist/racist dogma.
Bottom line: the Left is dying for a “gunfight” to frame Christians as evil, so they create one that brings down Trump and Christians all together in one afternoon. Christians are not the gun-toting rioters that the Left and their paid-for media partners would have the world believe. Unfortunately, guilt by location appears to be enough to convict these days. Truth doesn’t matter in their false narrative.
2. According to former Senator Michelle Bachman, if churches go silent, weakened Christian doctrine ushers in bad things (Christians being framed) that would likely lead to even worse things (Christians being murdered for their beliefs) just as it did with the heavy-handed, senseless mass murder and oppression of the Jews in Hitler’s Germany.
If we continue to allow the Left to frame Christians and churches as hateful, violent people trying to overthrow the U.S. government instead of the patriotic Christians we strive to be, we are condoning their use of double-speak in their efforts to cause further oppression and imprisonment or death for crimes we didn’t commit.
The Left is bold. Christians and churches need to be bolder. Now.
3. Stephen Coughlin, another speaker at the Cornerstone Townhall, is a leading expert on Islamic Law as it relates to national security. He is dedicated to the analysis of evidence unconstrained by pre-conceptions and biases and describes what is happening in our country today as “akin to a Leftist occupation of enemy combatants.”
According to Coughlin, we are no longer in a two-party system in our great land. We are fighting an enemy of the State called the Progressive Left.
Straight out of the Marxist playbook is a tactic called “lines of intersectionality.” Coughlin shows that the Left has been creating and using intersectional lines to divide and conquer our great nation for quite some time. They have drawn intersectional lines on race (BLM), sexuality (LGBTQ), politics (MAGA), abortion (control of woman’s body—no mention of tiny baby), the 1619 Project (alienate Christians from their heritage) and more.
Each line is designed to tear us apart socially and call us “backward,” as well as divert attention away from what they, the Left, are doing to systematically dismantle our nation.
Intersectionality is created by taking a value, creating a phony term, giving it negative attributes and disseminating the term with all these attributes through the biased media (or a political speech) so that people believe it. Then, rinse and repeat.
In a speech given by Joe Biden and replayed during the Christian Nationalism Townhall meeting was a telltale melding of terms that relates to Republicans—MAGA, Christian Nationalism, extremism, racism, political flames of violence, taking the country backward, etc.
The leftist Biden administration is a puppet for the Elite Technocrats (Globalists). That is why his administration is after our country’s freedom of religion, freedom of speech and free-market economy. All three represent the belief systems that founded this great nation and still unite us as Americans today.
Christianity in this country is still mainstream. Do not be fooled. It’s a fact that 63 percent of our population today consider themselves Christian.
The issue is that our voices have been censored to near silence, so no alternative view is offered to whatever narrative the Left creates. And their narrative is always tainted by lies. Labels like racist, misogynist, homophobic hate mongers are used for Christians when we are merely trying to uphold God and the biblical principles of our nation’s founding.
For enjoying our religious freedom, Christians are labeled as awful people with awful leaders and awful values.
Currently, the Left functions as a well-paid action committee and mouthpiece for the Globalist agenda in America and a precursor (THINK: non-binary and obscuring of genders) to the future Globalist economy of the World Economic Forum (WEF), with its de-humanization plans for every one of us.
Together, the faraway Globalists and their consenting Leftist cohorts in Congress are breaking down the United States as a Republic with Judeo-Christian values and a vibrant free-market economy with free and fair political elections (until 20 years ago) so they can more easily fold this great nation into their tyrannical global economy.
Again, right now the path to getting their way demands that they up-end God to destroy the backbone of our great nation. That is why the enemy must be Christians.
To get the job done, they label God-fearing Christians as Christian Nationalists because of its evil ring. They are creating a brand. And to more severely draw the line of Marxist intersectionality, they attach Christian Nationalism to racism, White Supremacism and anything else that involves small fringe groups that like guns.
The Left, together with the Globalists, are grooming our population, conditioning us for the evils to come (AGAIN THINK: Hitler’s Germany). If the Globalists complete their plan of a more sinister union, God will truly cease to exist in the minds of many. His free will becomes a distant memory amidst transhumanism. Political and religious freedom in America is being systematically destroyed and will become obsolete sooner than we can imagine.
We are seeing the mid-stages of this horrifying Globalist future today. The time to fight is now.
The integrity of the upright guides them, but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity.
Proverbs 11:3 NIV
But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your heart, do not be arrogant and so lie against the truth.
James 3:14 NASB
Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, But those who deal faithfully are His delight.
Proverbs 12:22 NASB
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth.
Romans 1:18 ESV
Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.
Isaiah 5:20 NIV

The Palestinian “Street”
One of the continuing disturbing aspects of the Israeli-Palestinian struggle is the view of the so-called Arab Street, ie, the people themselves. I’m not talking about the Marxist-trained PLO or Hamas. Their Jew-hatred has an economic component to it; it’s good business to oppose Israel.
But the rank-and-file has always been somewhat of a mystery. Do they really hate Israel, or are they foils for the corrupt leadership?
(By the way, I’ve always maintained that I don’t know I’d be principled and brave if I lived under a tyranny. I pity the people that live in a society that isn’t free. Increasingly like ours, I might add.)
I’ve had quite a few conversations with Palestinians in Israel, many of them Christians. They tend to speak differently in private. I understand that. They are not nearly as hostile to Israel in private, for they know what leadership is easier/better to live under. Palestinians in Bethlehem, for example, might have wished to remain under Israeli control in the 90s, rather than be used as political pawns by lightweights like Martin Indyk and the EU. Today, they tow the PLO line.
Now, a study by the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research indicates that trouble is still afoot—after decades of incitement to violence taught by the PA/PLO. Dr. Khalil Shqaqi’s public opinion poll tells us that Palestinian pubic support for “an armed struggle against Israel, a return to ‘armed attacks’ inside against Israeli civilians and support for ‘armed groups’ in the Palestinian Authority (PA)” increased in the latter part of last year.
The public supported (72 percent!) the Palestinian terror groups operating against Israelis. According to Shqaqi, “There was a particularly significant increase in support for terrorist attacks inside Israel, and the findings apparently indicate a trend within the Palestinian public towards extremism, especially in Judea and Samaria.”
Here are some disturbing details:
“A number of possible reasons were given for the results, among them the formation of the new right-wing government in Israel, the escalating military clashes between Palestinian ‘armed groups’ and the IDF in Samaria, especially after the event of March 2022, and the ‘unprecedented number’ of Palestinian casualties in clashes with Israeli security forces.
In ITIC assessment, to a significant degree senior figures in the PA and terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip have also contributed to increasing extremism. Figures in the PA, led by Muhammad Shtayyeh and Prime Minister Muhammad Shtayyeh, encourage violence and reward both Palestinian terrorists who carry out attacks and their families. They also promote international dialogues and activities to delegitimize Israel, call for boycotts, and repeatedly and publicly claim that today there is no partner for peace in Israel.4 Their efforts increased this past year as a result of the IDF's intensive counterterrorism activities, especially in northern Samaria (Operation Breaking Dawn), and have increased even more since the elections in Israel and the formation of a new government with Benjamin Netanyahu as prime minister. In the Gaza Strip, the terrorist organizations, primarily Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, continue efforts to foment unrest in Judea and Samaria and encourage Palestinians to clash with the Israeli security forces and carry out terrorist attacks, while abstaining from terrorist attacks on Israel's southern border.”
One can say that the “right-wing” government of Israel is an excuse, the top evidence being that the Palestinians were also violent under doves like Ehud Barak and Yair Lapid. Bottom line is, a steady diet of hate has almost destroyed Palestinian society and is the chief reason Ariel Sharon said he was confident that the Israelis and Palestinians would indeed achieve peace “in 500 years.”
While violent attitudes toward Israelis, from the Gaza Strip, held steady, the uptick in such fervor in Judea/Samaria is quite alarming. After 30 years of disingenuous, murderous behavior from the PA/PLO, Palestinians still believe violence is their path forward to establishing a state. As if a state wasn’t offered multiple times. In 2000, Barak offered Arafat 97 percent of the West Bank and control over the Temple Mount. The killer dwarf walked away from the negotiating table in a huff, perplexing Barak and even Bill Clinton (who years later admitted that Arafat was a liar and never a peace partner).
An interesting fact to be considered is that the Palestinian Center for Policy has been around since 2000 and headquartered in Ramallah, the headquarters of the PLO. It ain’t exactly an unbiased and free agency. They couldn’t, for example, release any data that really puts the onus on Palestinian leadership. However, we should also note that its findings are probably largely correct. As I said, my personal conversations in the country back this up.
As believers interested in Bible prophecy, we know that geopolitical solutions are not the long-term solution, at all. But we must pray like everything to see a slowdown in the violence. Even one life saved is worth it.
The spiritual struggle over Washington politics
WASH—Jan 12—KIN--The news media and Democratic Party had a heyday ridiculing Republicans over their endless ballots in deciding who would be speaker of the house. They mocked the seemingly indecisive Republicans, suggesting that they were leaderless, a reflection on former president Trump, a deep rift in the party, and that they didn't know how to govern. In my opinion, what we saw play out before our very eyes was a spiritual struggle. The entire seat of government has been engaged in a spiritual war for many years, perhaps even since the beginning of this wonderful experiment of a constitutional republic. It is not only a struggle between good and evil but also a classic battle between statism and individual freedom.
Democrats always have had a much easier time unifying under one big umbrella of political interests. They are, by definition, an everyone-votes, majority-rule façade in front of statist ideals of control. When they say free, they mean someone else is going to pay for it. Republicans, by definition, adhere to qualified voters electing representatives to vote by the rule of law. This system requires constitutional and legal protections so the majority cannot enslave or control the minority. It's based on less government and more individual freedom. The problem of the human factor seeps in. Humans seem to like control. They think they know best, like if you eat of the apple, you surely won't die. Some Republicans think this way.
Some conservative Republicans believe to change the way government is headed—to impact the spiritual battle over the principality of the godless statist system—they need to stand. And no matter how the world viewed what they were doing during this speaker battle, they remained strong through 14 ballots to receive guarantees that the not-so-strong Republicans would hold up their end of the bargain and do the right thing. That's the way politics works. The guarantees received by the conservative Republicans in exchange for supporting House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) included fiscal accountability measures and several bills, among them one to repeal authorization of the army of 87,000 IRS agents; a bill to prohibit taxpayer-funded abortions; a resolution to investigate the weaponization of the federal government against its citizens; and much more.
What seemed to be a sloppy process—a process ridiculed by the news media, the Democrats and some Republicans—was necessary to force a rollback of some of the nonsense that has taken place in government over the past several years. Ephesians 6:12 says, "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Indeed, Satan is a statist—government replaces God, and the head of government and his minions are satanic sock puppets. Satan has wanted to destroy this country and remove its God-ordained constitutionally-guaranteed freedoms since the beginning. And finally, there are a handful of people who did what Ephesians 6:13 instructs, "having done all, to stand."
CDC analysis identifies dangers of COVID vaccines
WASH—Jan 10—KIN--The Proportional Reporting Ratio (PRR) analysis of the Moderna and Pfizer COVID vaccines conducted by the Centers for Disease Control indicates literally hundreds of safety signals linked to the vaccines, including twice the proportion of adverse events and seven times that of death when compared with other vaccines. However, the same CDC continues to push the vaccines as safe and effective. The CDC refused to make the analysis public until it was forced by a Freedom of Information Act request from The Epoch Times. These revelations possibly coincide with, maybe even confirm, the astronomical increase in excess deaths among otherwise healthy people, including sudden death syndrome in many adults.
The Epoch Times reports, "PRR involves comparing the incidence of a specific adverse event after a specific vaccine to the incidence after all other vaccines. A signal is triggered when three thresholds are met, according to the CDC: a PRR of at least two, a chi-squared statistic of at least four, and three or more cases of the event following receipt of the vaccine being analyzed. Chi-squared tests are a form of statistical analysis used to examine data. The results obtained by The Epoch Times show that there are hundreds of adverse events (AEs) that meet the definition, including serious conditions such as blood clotting in the lungs, intermenstrual bleeding, a lack of oxygen to the heart, and even death. The high numbers, particularly the chi-squared figures, concerned experts."
The Epoch Times also reports, "The CDC's results also show that a much higher proportion of events after COVID-19 vaccination were serious. For adults, for instance, the proportion was 11.1 percent, compared to 5.5 percent after non-COVID-19 vaccines. The proportion of deaths for adults was 15.4 percent after COVID-19 vaccination, much higher than the 2.5 percent after other shots. . . . The newly obtained PRR results returned more than 500 adverse events larger than myocarditis and pericarditis." Israeli professor Josh Guetzkow, a statistics expert, told The Epoch Times, "We know that the signal for myocarditis is associated with something that is caused by the mRNA vaccines, so it's more than reasonable to say that anything with a signal larger than myocarditis/pericarditis should be taken seriously and investigated."
A confidential Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine adverse event report to the FDA, dated April 3, 2021, and obtained by The Daily Jot, listed nine pages--472 lines and 2072 words--of "Adverse Events of Special Interest." Side effects including those involving pregnant women, heart conditions, blood clots, anaphylactic shock and lack of efficacy were withheld from the public as the government propagandized that the vaccine was "safe and effective." No wonder FDA wanted 75 years to release vaccine data and Pfizer filed in federal court to work with FDA to ensure "proper redactions are made." As Jesus said in Mark 4:22 (NKJV), "For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light." May it be so in this case so lives can be saved and preserved.
Apostasy in the Church
The Foundations Destroyed: Part 4
As we conclude this four-part series, we end at the logical place: the end.
Beginning with how our foundations have been damaged in the American Church, we finish with where this all inevitably leads: a look at the prophecy haters in the Church. There are too many of them. Legions.
Many people ask me each month why we are in the place we are. Drag queens in pulpits, denial of the fundamentals of the faith. The rapid advancement of the homosexual agenda.
The crystal-clear answer is: The Bible prophesied it!
Ahead of the 2018 move of the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, left-wing writer Jonathan Merritt sarcastically noted that “controversial” evangelical pastors would take part in the ceremonies. The two pastors whose photos he attached to his tweet were John Hagee and Robert Jeffress. He loathes pastors that support Israel and/or teach Bible prophecy.
(Here I’m not advocating for these men, but to point out that they are among the few national evangelical leaders that support Israel. They arrive at this position biblically, not politically.)
Merritt is the homosexual son of former Southern Baptist Convention President James Merritt. Merritt the Elder has a nasty habit of responding in a nasty way to anyone that criticizes his son. My, how far the SBC has fallen!
On November 19, 2012, evangelical writer (turned marketing guru) Donald Miller wrote a blog piece about Israel, filled with lies. When he was asked directly to respond to criticisms, he did what all leftists do: ignored the requests. He had spent some time in a place he calls “Israel/Palestine.” He actually visited PLO headquarters and then came home to spout their propaganda. One wonders if critical thinking skills are completely gone in this country. Miller’s “reporting” rivaled that of Soviet lackey Walter Duranty in the 1930s (Duranty later recanted much of what he had written; it appears Miller doesn’t have that much integrity).
There are subtleties to this whole subject, too, of evangelical leaders that have a problem with prophecy teaching. After Rick Warren urged pastors to ignore prophecy teaching (in his landmark book, The Purpose-Driven Life), he has consistently put himself far to the left of pro-Israel, pro-prophecy teachers. A few years ago, he tweeted the following:
“Israeli govt tells Jerusalem pastor “The State of Israel doesn’t recognize the Baptist church”. This was a retweet of a message from Sami Awad, an Israel-hating resident of Bethlehem, under the sway/pay? of the PLO. Warren always sides with this crowd, and his embrace and mentoring of such Palestinian-supporting millennials as Cameron Strang attests to this.
All these things contribute to the current climate. Last week I had a conversation with a top prophecy teacher that lives in a major city. He told me that they had contacted 30 churches in their area about having a prophecy conference. Not a single positive response. Not one!
The root of this very sobering reality is the liberal scholarship of the 19th century and the liberal pulpits of the 20th (remember, Warren received his Ph.D. from Fuller Seminary in 1980 and pro-Palestinian founders of the the Willow Creek Association, Bill and Lynne Hybels, launched the seeker-driven movement in the Chicago suburbs in 1975. The fruit of the Seeker-Driven/Church Growth Model is now complete and explains as much as anything the overall loathing of prophecy teaching in evangelical churches today. This is mind-boggling turn of events. In the 1970s, it was almost exclusively the mainline and Catholic churches that denigrated prophecy teaching.
One of the bridges to this reality has been men like Brian McLaren. The former liberal pastor became so successful on the book writing and speaking circuit that he moved from Maryland to Florida to do that full-time. His popularity among millennials is frankly heartbreaking. I had occasion to engage him in some dialogue a decade ago and asked him one day if he didn’t find it ironic that he was helping fulfill—directly—2 Peter 3. Not only does he deny the Genesis accounts of creation, he laughs off Bible prophecy, especially last-days theology.
He dismissively laughed off my comment. He and his friends, which now number in the many among evangelical pastors and ministry leaders, don’t have to answer ignorant knuckle-dragger fundamentalists such as me. They simply continue spewing their theological sewage to the people in the pews, most of whom don’t know enough about the Bible to know they’re being played.
The great scholar Oswald Allis, who taught and wrote in the last century, had keen insights in the study of Bible prophecy. He also vigorously opposed the false teachers of his day. He once wrote:
“It is to be remembered, however, that the fulfillment of prophecy is the one great evidence to which the Bible itself points.” He then asserted:
“As Justin Martyr, who himself was converted to the Christian faith by a study of the prophets, put it, ‘To declare a thing shall come to pass long before it is in being, and then to bring it to pass, this or nothing is the work of God.”
There you have it, the key to understanding both prophecy and the hatred of it in our day.”
People either love the reality of God’s sovereign nature, or they despise it. Just as the pagans, many evangelical leaders today absolutely hate the teaching of Bible prophecy and they employ a bunch of tactics to oppose it.
They are helping fulfill the very prophecy they deny.
The digital dollar is coming on the back of the FTX collapse
January 4, 2023
Source: The Hill
The arrest of CEO Sam Bankman-Fried may be the smaller news story coming out of the collapse of FTX. Politicians will miss the point surrounding the massive political donations of the company and instead push for simplistic solutions to a complex issue. Ultimately, the collapse of the crypto company could lead to onerous federal regulations and the establishment of a federal “digital dollar.” The FTX issue isn’t large enough, under normal circumstances, to push through such dramatic banking and financial changes, but it is clear that those at the Federal Reserve and many in Congress have been salivating for such changes for years. This could be a fig leaf to justify it.
The loss of billions of dollars through the collapse of FTX is beginning to echo through the economy. Both private investors and crypto holders lost big in the company’s collapse. With nearly 1 million customers, the similarities to previous large-scale collapses are obvious. The criminal charges against Bankman-Fried perhaps offer someone on whom to pin responsibility, but not a means to fix the damage. The purported remedy instead may be the largest fiscal overhaul since the creation of the Fed.
A switch to a cashless, centrally-controlled digital form of currency could be relatively simple. Currently, the Fed and several major banks are running a “Digital Dollar pilot,” and it is being pushed as a good idea by media outlets including opinion writers in the Wall Street Journal. The Fed is preparing the electronic form of currency in conjunction with similar efforts by other nations. After all, the argument may go, if the United States doesn’t innovate, China or someone else will. Some in Congress already support the idea, and FTX may have provided just the grounds needed for a transition to such a system.

Abp. Vigano: Trump’s LGBT gala shows Deep State has ‘contaminated the entire political elite’
December 20, 2022
Source: LifeSite News
The Republican Party is recklessly pursuing a minority of voters who are indulging in lifestyles that are contrary to the Commandments and to the common good.
A large scandal has been created, as well as discouragement, upon learning the news of the gala event hosted by President Donald J. Trump for openly homosexual supporters of the Republican Party. This endorsement of LGBT ideology is even more serious if one considers that, only two days previously, Joe Biden signed the “Respect for Marriage Act” which recognizes the legal validity of so-called homosexual marriages in the United States, in violation of the Natural Law and also the Law of God.
The Democratic Party is totally anti-Christian and obstinately determined to implement the globalist agenda of the New World Order. On the other hand, the Republican Party is recklessly pursuing a minority of voters who are indulging in lifestyles that are contrary to the Commandments and to the common good.

NY officials: Yeshiva U must explain public funds as it won’t recognize LGBTQ group

State lawmakers say university may have misled agency to get over $230 million earmarked for non-religious purposes while claiming religious protections to reject campus Pride club
NEW YORK — State officials in New York said Wednesday that Yeshiva University appeared to have misrepresented its status as a secular institution to obtain state funding, the latest fallout from the university’s lengthy and acrimonious legal battle against recognizing an LGBTQ student group.
The flagship Modern Orthodox university in New York City has for years refused to recognize the YU Pride Alliance, arguing that approving the club would infringe on its religious beliefs.
The legal dispute revolves around whether the university is a secular institution that must adhere to non-discrimination laws, or a religious one covered by protections for the free expression of beliefs.

Come to the ‘war cry party’: How social media helped drive mayhem in Brazil
January 9, 2023
In the weeks leading up to Sunday’s violent attacks on Brazil’s Congress and other government buildings, the country’s social media channels surged with calls to attack gas stations, refineries and other infrastructure, as well as for people to come to a “war cry party” in the capital, according to Brazilian social media researchers.
Online influencers who deny the results of the country’s recent presidential election used a particular phrase to summon “patriots” to what they called a “Festa da Selma” — tweaking the word “selva,” a military term for war cry, by substituting an “m” for the “v” in hopes of avoiding detection from Brazilian authorities, who have wide latitude to arrest people for “anti-democratic” postings online. “Festa” is the Portuguese word for “party.”
Organizers on Telegram posted dates, times and routes for “Liberty Caravans” that would pick people up in at least six Brazilian states and ferry them to the party, according to posts viewed by The Washington Post. One post said: “Attention Patriots! We are organizing for a thousand buses. We need 2 million people in Brasília.”

A brief response to the latest hit piece
MSNBC opinion columnist Zeesham Aleem just penned the latest in what’s become a parade of hit pieces from mainstream outlets directed at me and other independent journalists. Even by the low standards of the genre, “How the populist left has become vulnerable to the populist right” is a humorous standout. It argues that after I spent a month detailing how the FBI, DHS, DOD, CIA and other agencies built a system for mass delivery of censorship requests to firms like Twitter and Facebook, I helped fuel a subculture that “could funnel people from leftism to authoritarianism.”
Here’s a brief list of talking heads at the network now claiming people like me, Glenn Greenwald, Tulsi Gabbard and Jimmy Dore are the ones guilty of funneling audiences to “authoritarianism.”

‘No amnesty!’: Brazilian protests demand jail for rioters
January 10, 2023
RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — “No amnesty! No amnesty! No amnesty!”
The chant reverberated off the walls of the jam-packed hall at the University of Sao Paulo’s law college on Monday afternoon. Hours later, it was the rallying cry for thousands of Brazilians who streamed into the streets of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, penned on protest posters and banners.
The words are a demand for retribution against supporters of former President Jair Bolsonaro who stormed Brazil’s capital Sunday, and those who enabled the rampage.
“These people need to be punished, the people who ordered it need to be punished, those who gave money for it need to be punished,” Bety Amin, a 61-year-old therapist, said on Sao Paulo’s main boulevard. The word “DEMOCRACY” stretched across the back of her shirt. “They don’t represent Brazil. We represent Brazil.”

How does Israel interpret the Russian-Iranian alliance?
January 6, 2023
In Israeli eyes, Tehran is allied with Moscow because both are in conflict with the U.S. for different reasons, and that fact is far more important than any ideological overlaps between them.
It is perhaps a measure of Israel’s elevated stature in the world that its newly elected right-wing government is under scrutiny not just for its domestic policies and its approach to the Palestinians, but its foreign policy as well.
The last week has witnessed an enormous amount of speculation over which path Benjamin Netanyahu’s coalition will follow with regard to Russia’s brutal aggression against Ukraine. Some believe that the new government will break with every policy of the previous government with the exception of Ukraine, by retaining an extensive humanitarian aid operation, voicing political support for the democratic government in Kyiv, but refusing to supply the Ukrainians with the weaponry they are clamoring for. Others believe there is a chance that Israel might arm Ukraine after all, citing Netanyahu hinting at the possibility in an interview with MSNBC last October. (In the interview, he also said that “there is always the possibility—and this has happened time and again—that weapons we supply in one battlefield end up in Iranian hands, used against us.”) Still others believe that Netanyahu’s return signals a realignment with the regime of Russian President Vladimir Putin, whom he described in his recently published book My Story as “smart, sophisticated and focused on one goal—returning Russia to its historical greatness.”
All of these options are more or less plausible. And they are being debated in a febrile context defined in military terms by ongoing sledgehammer Russian strikes against Ukraine’s civilian infrastructure using Iranian-manufactured Shahed-131 and Shahed-136 drones, and in political terms by the appointment of a new Israeli foreign minister, one of whose first acts was to do what his predecessor refused to do, in speaking by telephone with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov.

Israel nanosatellite a breakthrough in quantum communications
January 4, 2023
Its main mission: to synch with the optical ground station at Tel Aviv U.
TAU-SAT3, launched Tuesday on a SpaceX rocket from Cape Canaveral in Florida, will pave the way towards quantum communication via a nanosatellite, Tel Aviv University reported on Wednesday.
TAU- SAT3 was launched to an altitude of 550 kilometers (340 miles) and will orbit the earth for five years carrying out several scientific tasks.
“Its main mission will be to communicate with the new optical ground station set up on the roof of the Shenkar Physics Building on the TAU campus,” said Noam Eliaz, dean of the Iby and Aladar Fleischman Faculty of Engineering.

The false prophets of an impending Israeli apocalypse
January 3, 2023
Given their pernicious predictions about the end of democracy, Zionism and Judaism, the sore losers to Netanyahu’s new government will do even worse in the next election.
Within minutes of the swearing-in of Israel’s 37th government, the self-proclaimed “forces of light” who were defeated by it began a campaign to prove that the voters were already suffering from buyer’s remorse—and that the public was in for an Armageddon of Prime Minister Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu’s making.
As part of the effort, Channel 13 on Sunday broadcast a survey, conducted on its behalf by leading pollster Camil Fuchs, showing that if Knesset elections were held today, Bibi’s bloc would garner eight seats fewer than the 64 it gained at the ballot box on Nov. 1 . Leaving aside the consistent inaccuracy of Fuchs’s forecasts in the lead-up to that date, the local media’s inability to accept that the “most right-wing coalition in the country’s history” was neither a fluke nor a mark of Cain has been almost comical.
In the first place, the very commissioning of an electoral poll at such an early stage—some five minutes into the changing of the guard—was as ridiculous as it was transparent. Secondly, the only company that proved worth its salt was Direct Polls. Nevertheless, its research is still viewed as biased for two reasons.
