Obeying from the heart.

Part two                    5/2/2021

“For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous” Romans 5:19. NKJV.

“Although He was a Son, (Son of God) yet He learned obedience by the things He suffered” Hebrews 5:8. Jesus was perfected, not in a moral sense since He always possessed moral perfection. But in His nature as the (Son of Man) the author of Hebrews emphasizes the genuine humanity of Jesus.

The path that He trod as the suffering Redeemer was fitting, for thereby He was made perfect. He became perfect or complete as an all-sufficient Savior Hebrews 2:10.  

What is obedience? The Bible’s definition of obedience in the New Testament is given in the second part of 2 Corinthians 10:5. “Casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ. Strong’s # 5218 is from two Greek words “hupo, meaning “under” and “akoun” “to hear”.

Hoop-ak-oh-ay means attentive hearing, to listen with compliant submission, agree to God’s commands, especially after thoughtful consideration. Obey and do it. To not obey is to sin.

In last week’s message Samuel spells out (I kings 15:22) what obedience and sacrifices mean to us. We read about the sad end to King Saul’s rein as king over Israel. Samuel said, “Has the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord?

Saul’s motives are shown to be rebellion and stubbornness or standing in opposition to God’s commands.

Behold, to obey is better than to sacrifice…

So, what is the meaning of sacrifice in our text? 1 Samuel 15:22. “Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice. Faith in God’s Word that produces obedience to God’s will delights the Lord. Burnt offerings and sacrifices may indicate mere external religionism or even hypocrisy, but obedience to God springs out of the heart.

There is a direct link here given by Hosea the prophet. Hosea says in 6:6: “For I desire mercy (here meaning faithfulness or loyalty) and not sacrifice, and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.”  Mercy (Hebrew hesed) is a loyal covenant love extended to others because it has been experienced in one’s own relationship with God.

Two Covenants are to be understood here. In the Old Testament the word “Knowledge” Strong’s #1847 (Dah-aht) is defined as knowing, understanding, intelligence, wisdom, discernment, skill (dah-aht) comes from the verb yada; “to know.” Hosea 4:6 says, lack of knowledge destroys God’s people. “By His knowledge, MY righteous Servant (Jesus) shall justify many” can be taken to mean that knowledge of Him (Jesus) that is knowing Him justifies them or that He uses His knowledge and skills to obtain their justification that is, He: by His priestly intercession, knows how to justify believers.

 Now, in regard to the Holy Spirit His impartation only came upon kings, priests, and prophets to guide the people; then He would leave, the Holy Spirit was not resident in the Old Covenant believers.

So, in context the Old Covenant believers only had head knowledge, which is incomplete, because the Holy Spirit was not in residence. One of Our Lord Holy Spirit’s names is Parakletos. Our helper, or comforter, one called ‘Alongside.” He leads and guides while imparting His wisdom, understanding, help in so many ways. Another name for Holy Spirit is Spirit of Truth.”

Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth and the truth (the truth is a person the Holy Spirit) shall make (speaks of a process) you free.” John 8:31,32. Let’s compare these two definitions for clarity.

Three types of knowledge.


Dah-aht is defined as knowing, understanding, intelligence, wisdom, discernment, skill (dah-aht) comes from the verb yada; “to know, only as man limited. With out the influence of the Holy Spirit.


Know (ginosko) Strong’s # 1097. To perceive, understand, recognize, gain knowledge, realize, come to know. Ginosko is the knowledge that has an inception, a progress, and an attainment.   It is the recognition of truth by personal experience of the person of the Holy Spirit.

Knowledge (epignosis) Strong’s # 1922. Meaning precise and correct knowledge. It expresses a more thorough participation on the part of the knower, with the object of knowledge; a knowledge that has a powerful influence on the knower. Under the influence of the Holy Spirit.

I.E. “And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgement and discernment. Philippians 1”9.

Now for part two of the process. “So then faith (trust) comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Romans 10:17. We are limited to our five senses, but in our hearing, we understand because the H.S. is in the Word and bears witness to our B.A. spirit, so faith (trust) comes so that we can submit to His will in obedience.

“Casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5.

Obedience (hupakoe) Strong’s # 5218. From hupo, “under,” and akouo, “to hear.” The word means attentive hearing, to listen with compliant submission, assent, and agreement. It is used for obedience in general, for obedience to God’s commands, and for Christ’s obedience.

Out of all of these, the highest significance of the usage of the word obedience in the Bible is between the relation of man to God. The reason for this is that obedience is the supreme and ultimate test of faith in God and reverence for him.


Truth & Love

Today’s message will be short as I have a follow up  power point presentation for your viewing pleasure entitled “Honesty.”  

Our culture force-feeds us a false notion of love. Tolerance and diversity are its defining features. Meanwhile, truth is generally held in high suspicion—if not treated with outright contempt. An unyielding commitment to truth is often viewed as unloving. As a result, truth is regularly sacrificed in the name of love.

But the symbiotic relationship between love and truth is essential. Authentic love “rejoices with the truth” (1 Cor 13:6). Love without truth has no character. Truth without love has no power.

When separated from one another, either virtue is nothing more than mere pretense. Love deprived of truth deteriorates into self-love. Truth divorced from love breeds self-righteousness.

Love and Truth Complete One Another

Love and truth are key words in John’s second letter. The central theme throughout is the interdependence of these two qualities of Christlikeness.

John is the right person to write on this theme. Jesus had nicknamed John and his brother James “Boanerges, that is, Sons of Thunder” because of their fiery zeal for the truth (Mark 3:17). At first, their passion was not always tempered with love. We see a glimpse of this in Luke 9:54, when they wanted to call down fire from heaven upon a village of Samaritans who had rebuffed Christ.

In later years, however, John distinguished himself as the apostle of love—highlighting the theme of love in his gospel and in all three of his letters.

As we see in all his letters, John never lost his zeal for the truth. But he connected it to Christ-like love. In his second letter, where he has some hard things to say in defense of the truth, he is careful to give first place to love. Before getting into the main issue—how to deal with supposed Christian teachers who deny truth—he accents the supreme importance of obedience to Jesus’ command “that we love one another” (v. 5; compare John 13:34–35).

John writes about two essential features of a worthy walk:

We must walk in truth by displaying love (vv. 1–5).

  1. Truth is the foundation of love (vv. 1–3).
  2. Love is the fulfillment of truth (vv. 4–5).

We must walk in love by devoting ourselves to truth (vv. 6–13).

  1. We must know the truth (vv. 6–9).
  2. We must guard the truth (vv. 10–12).

Likely, the recipient(s) of John’s letter had read his warning: “That antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come. Therefore, we know that it is the last hour” (1 John 2:18; compare 2:22; 4:3). John made it clear that such men were “false prophets”—teachers who claimed to be believers but whose doctrine undermined the faith. And many of them had already gone out all over the known world (4:1).

For someone, whose ministry entailed showing kindness to strangers, those were unsettling words. What was the loving response to someone who claimed to be a brother in Christ but taught the doctrine of antichrist?

The Importance of Love

Verses 1–5 describe the relationship between love and truth. “All who [genuinely] know the truth” do love. Love itself is at the heart of all truth, because love is just what the truth demands. Love is the perfect fulfillment of God’s commandments (compare Rom 13:10Gal 5:14). John does not want the recipient(s) of this letter to think that anything else he is about to say denigrates the importance of love.

But then, between verses 6 and 7, the tone and thrust of the letter take a dramatic turn. John reiterates the necessity of being on guard against deceivers and antichrists. In verse 9, he gives a thumbnail description of how to distinguish such people from authentic believers.

What are the distinguishing marks of someone who “goes on ahead and does not abide in the teaching of Christ” (v. 9)? John’s answer to that question can be found in 1 John, where he expounded on the marks of authentic faith and the characteristics of false faith.

Loving the Truth

Verses 10–11 contain the main point John wants to address in this letter:

“If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house or give him any greeting, for whoever greets him takes part in his wicked works.”

John warns against those who come in Christ’s name but deny Christ’s essential teaching. He is not talking about simple matters of disagreement between believers in Christ. He is prescribing what to do with someone who is on a mission to undermine the foundations of the faith. He expects his readers to distinguish between essential and inconsequential errors.

John wants us to learn what it means to ground love in the truth. We should not succumb to the pressures of our age to spurn or subjugate Christ’s truth to a false and foggy notion of love.

Anger and its place in our lives.

“The New Testament views unjustifiable anger and its fits of rage as originating in the old carnal nature. In the Old Testament Israel’s obedience to the Law brought them into outward conformity to His will and character. Through the workings and power of the cross in the New Testament, the focus is on the inward nature, the character of man”. Dr. Harold Dewberry.

“Get rid of bitterness, rage, anger,” Paul wrote, “Brawls, and slander, along with every form of Malice.” Let all bitterness and indignation and wrath (passion, rage, bad temper) and resentment (anger, animosity) and quarreling (brawling, clamor, contention) and slander (evil speaking, abusive or blasphemous language) be banished from you, will all malice (spite, ill will or baseness of any kind). And become useful helpful and kind to one another, tender-hearted (compassionate, understanding, loving -hearted), forgiving one another (readily and freely) as God in Christ forgave you.”  (Ephesians 4:31-32 Amp).    

So, we can conclude that unchecked anger can be the root of inter-personal bitterness, the root source of murder. Revenge is ruled out for the believer, not only by the principle of forgiveness (Ephesians 4:32), but also to leave room for God’s wrath (Romans 12:19). God alone is judge, and he alone has the right of retribution. Although anger can be justifiable, it is no question that anger can become a major source of sin. Paul writes, “Do not sin. Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry (Ephesians 4:26 Amp).

Beneficial Anger.  

What do I mean by beneficial anger. This is to say, to be angry and yet sin not. In praying with people who have suffered from some form of abuse (whether it be social/cultural injustice, sexual, physical, or emotional abuse). Get in contact with their emotions, a great deal of anger is always present.  

A sure sign that inner healing and transformation of the soul is taking place is the evidence of anger. Instead of repressing the anger, our sister/brother is encouraged to let the anger come to the surface, so that the violated and broken boundaries can be re-established. In this sense, anger becomes the solid resilient strength of the soul, whereby anger is then the inner strength of will which will allow one to establish boundaries.

In the overall approach there needs to be other areas which should be dealt with before proceeding to allow anger to manifest. Other negative emotions such as shame, fear, guilt and grief must be confessed (James 5:16) and healing prayers offered. If the other negative emotions are not released and healed, then anger will be the channel through which other emotional tensions and stress will be released.   

Whenever the moral boundaries have been re-established, the anger is dissipated by confession and prayer. The key to inner healing and restoration of the soul is found in James 5:16; James 1:21; Ephesians 5:26; and 1 Peter 1:23.

Confession in the Greek Koine definition is defined as EXOMOLOGEO which is a combination of two words. PARATOMIA  refers to basic attitudes of, or the deep feelings of the heart. The second part refers to faults which is related to inner shame, guilt, the internal psychic effects of sin. Confession is to externalize these deep feelings of the heart.

The emotional and psychological responses to another’s sin towards us is called in James 5:13 afflictions.


The word afflictions is found in James 5:13 refers to emotional and psychological pain or stress. The word is used in a two fold way in the gospels. Jesus healed those who were oppressed or afflicted from  an outside source. The other expression of the word wounded or hurt by an action or words of another.

One example of this is the wounding that Joseph received (Genesis 42:21) when his brothers were motivated by envy and jealousy to sell him as a slave. The symbolism of his tormented, pained, soul was manifested in the iron fetters that  bound him at the ankles (Ps. 105:18). Release only comes from this type of inner pain when the sin of the other is forgiven and the emotional pain which has resulted is confessed (Genesis 41:51).     

The soul is diseased and needs to be converted.

What does it mean to be converted? Our personal spirit must be reborn, and the soul converted. Conversion is the continual process of regeneration of the soul. This is called sanctification, Jesus said, (John 8:42) “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” The word “make” speaks of a process, not a one time event.

Repressed memories can cause hidden walls, and structures, blockages, and hidden motivation for relational attitudes and behaviors. The Apostle Paul refers to “past feelings” in Ephesians 4:19 means to cease to feel pain or grief, to become callous, insensitive to pain, apathetic.

Pain expresses in this case moral insensibility, the deadness that surpasses when the heart has ceased to be sensible to the stimuli of the conscience. This kind of deadness leads to behavioral problems. It is from the diseased soul that we are caused to have strong and ever present sensual desires. It is translated as lust. See verses like Col.4:5; 1 Thes. 4:5; Rom.1:26.

The most Scriptural way of handling negative emotions and psychological pain is to be able to release the emotions from the platform of forgiveness. Having forgiven the perpetrator, then the focus is on personal attitudes and feelings. The result is restoration of the spiritual tone of heart and tone of heart and mind. The ultimate result is soul peace and harmony.(James 5:16).

Anger, then, becomes an acceptable emotion and when stimulated is governed by love, joy, peace, faith, long suffering. Unresolved anger has a direct link to depression and is one of its basic root causes. Anger when turned inward will burn up soul energies, causing tiredness, lack of mental and emotional motivation.  

If anger has turned into unjustifiable anger (wrath) vengeance. The person needs to repent and release their right of judgment over the other person. Wrath is forbidden in Scripture because it creates in the mind resentful and negative thoughts of vengeance.[1] These vain (to no end) imaginations can be phobic and lead to paranoia. This can be very harmful at this point as a door can be opened to a “spirit of murder” to enter. If the psychosis is not treated, then the psychosis can develop into schizophrenic tendencies, as sub-conscious guilt increases.      

 Overcoming Anger.

The Apostle Paul gives us a Key, In the last part of 1 Cor. 15:31 he says, “I die daily.” We die to self, the old nature with all of its destructive attitudes needs to die at the cross of Christ Jesus. 

Common roots of anger include fear, pain, and frustration. For example, some people become angry as a fearful reaction to uncertainty, to fear of losing a job, or to fear of failure. Others become angry when they are hurt in relationships or are caused pain by close friends.

“Over the years, we’ve discovered that whenever we ignore or bury an emotion, it is buried alive. At some time and in some way, that ignored or buried emotion will express itself – physically, psychologically, or spiritually.” By addressing our anger as it comes, we will be able to stop this strong emotion from building up.

Here are 3 ways to help answer the question, “Why are you so angry?”

1. Face it.

Don’t avoid the red warning light out of fear. The most important thing is to first face the fact that we all struggle with anger. As humans, we naturally react emotionally to distressing situations.

2. Find it.

Next, after facing it, we must find the root of the anger that is lodged deep within us. Common roots of anger include fear, pain, and frustration. For example, some people become angry as a fearful reaction to uncertainty, to fear of losing a job, or to fear of failure. Others become angry when they are hurt in relationships or are caused pain by close friends. When it comes to me, the root of my anger is often found in all the little frustrations I’ve let build up within me.

3. Figure it out.

Once we’ve found the root of our anger, we will be able to figure out how to deal with it in a healthier way.

  • Deal with fear: Sometimes the best way to face our fears is to write them out. By taking the time to examine what you’re deeply afraid of on a piece of paper, you will be able to rationalize your thoughts. In the future, this may help keep fears from building up into anger.
  • Deal with pain: If you’re trapped and experiencing pain, go talk to the person who caused you pain right now! Whether the hurt is a result of a misunderstanding or an intentional attack, you won’t be able to move forward until you discuss your pain with the person who hurt you. Only when confession and forgiveness are present will you be able to let go of your anger.
  • Deal with frustration: While we can’t always choose what happens to us, we can choose how to respond. So in response to frustrating moments, choose to dwell on the positive. Also, frustration is sometimes the result of unmet expectations. Make sure your expectations are realistic and show grace if they are not fulfilled.

Only when confession and forgiveness are present will you be able to let go of your anger.

 “One of the many potentially positive aspects of anger is that it can serve as a very powerful and effective warning system. Healthy anger can help us identify problems and needs and provide us with the energy to do something about them.”

When was the last time you were angry, and how did you deal with it?  [2]

Administering ‘Truth’ in our Schools

By Janet Levy

In George Orwell’s novel 1984, the Ministry of Truth is responsible for falsifying historical events and advancing government-approved versions of the ‘truth,’ such as ‘2 + 2 = 5’ and ‘War is peace.’ The ministry, the propaganda wing of the government of Oceania, one of the fictional superstates in the novel, uses ‘doublethink’ and ‘newspeak’ to obscure, distort or even reverse the meaning of words.

That was a fictional dystopia. But a few current examples will leave no doubt that the Orwellian manufacture of ‘truth’ is very much a salient feature of the American educational system.

Last week, the Palm Beach County School Board, FL,  voted four to three to reinstate William Latson, a former principal of the Spanish River Community High School, Boca Raton, who had emailed a parent: “I can’t say the Holocaust is a factual, historical event because I am not in a position to do so as a school district employee.” His dismissal of  the most well-documented genocide in history, and in a school with the largest Jewish student population in the country at that, caused shockwaves and resulted in his suspension.

In 1994, the Florida Legislature passed the Holocaust Education Bill (SB 660), mandating  lessons of the Holocaust to be part of the public-school curriculum. It said the Holocaust must be taught as “a uniquely important event in modern history, emphasizing the systemic and state-sponsored violence, which distinguish it from other genocides.”

Despite this, Latson was selective in teaching Holocaust material, saying, “I work to expose students to certain things, but not all parents want their students exposed, so they will not be and I can’t force that issue.” This was beyond belief for many in the community: the principal was implying not only that whether the Holocaust happened was open to interpretation, but also that the study of the topic was optional.

When Latson was recently reinstated with $152,000 in lost wages, state administrative judge Robert Cohen ruled that the principal “made some unfortunate choices in expressing his thoughts,” but should have received a verbal or written reprimand — a mere slap on the wrist. He called for reassigning Latson to a post “commensurate with his qualifications,” no punishment at all for doubting the worst genocide in modern history. Surely, if Latson had minimized slavery, he would have been fired.

When the school board rehired Latson, Congressman Alcee L. Hastings (D-FL) made the following statement: “At a time when anti-Semitism in our country exists at record levels and basic knowledge of the Holocaust among young Americans has been found to be profoundly lacking, it is incumbent upon our educators to push back against intolerance — not embrace the language of Holocaust deniers. This decision reflects poorly on our community and is an insult to the thousands of Holocaust survivors who have made South Florida their home, the descendants of victims, and the millions of Jews who were murdered during the genocide.”

Now, contrast the Latson case with that of Catholic high school theology teacher Timothy Gordon, who was fired over personal social media posts characterizing Black Lives Matter (BLM) as a terrorist group. For the record, between 2017 and 2019, the FBI officially referred to BLM as a “black identity extremist group.” The bureau explained this was not racial profiling, but a necessary response to the rising number of ambush attacks by BLM on police officers. Scott Walter, of Capital Research Center, a think-tank, was quoted by Fox News as saying, “It’s not racial profiling, it’s violence profiling.”

Gordon’s online posts warned of BLM violence, called on Americans to “forcibly defend your cities from arsonist-vandals,” and said BLM opposes “the western Christian nuclear family.” He also alleged that BLM readies weapons and rocks at protest sites to foment mayhem.

Gordon was accurately describing current events as a private citizen on social media; he says he never shared these views with students. Yet, he was sacked. Clearly, he is being discriminated against for views that happen to be politically incorrect, or just unpopular.

The stunningly disparate outcomes in the Latson and Gordon cases point to the special status enjoyed by some groups despite illegal activity and violence: Latson, as a principal, perverted and doubted a copiously documented historical event; Gordon truthfully reported, as a private citizen, on actual riots, looting, and the stated mission of an organization that supports violence. This sadly indicates that Jews may not rate the same level of protection as a radical black Marxist group that chants, “What do we want? Dead cops!” and urges blacks to kill “honkies.”

In yet another public school case, not only was there no action against a teacher for promoting the Islamic faith in a world history class, but a court of appeals upheld a requirement for a dissenting student to recite the Islamic conversion prayer in violation of her religious beliefs.  When 11th grader Caleigh Wood, of La Plata High School, in Maryland, refused to intone, “There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah,” she was threatened with a failing grade.

Students at the school were required to watch presentations that endorsed Islam and criticized Christianity and the Pope. Ms Wood refused to complete her assignment, citing religious objections, and sought an alternative, which the school rejected. Her lawsuit documents that no portion of the Bible or any other non-Islamic religious texts were covered in class. Instead of viewing this as religious coercion, the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the teacher “did not violate the Establishment Clause” of the First Amendment in teaching about Islam as part of a history class. Later, the Supreme Court of the United States refused to review Ms Wood’s appeal.

The landmark case that set the precedent for school prayer decisions was Engel v. Vitale (1962), in which the United States Supreme Court held that it was unconstitutional for public schools to lead students in prayer or Bible reading, even on a voluntary basis.  Incredibly, in  Ms. Wood’s case, Islamic prayer was exempted.

In the current secondary school environment, an educator can get away with denying or minimizing the Holocaust, while Islam may be promoted with impunity. And a teacher who reports on actual events — rioting, looting, vandalizing, and assaults on civilians and police officers by a militant black group — is censured, shunned and loses his job.

These events reinforce the view that anti-Semitism, anti-Christianity, anti-white racism and attacks on police are tolerated. Statements criticizing a violent black movement that has wreaked havoc in dozens of cities are automatically labeled racist, and objections to curriculums that subject students to Islamic indoctrination (in ways that wouldn’t be tolerated for any other religion) are labeled racist. Even non-critical, neutral statements can be perceived as racist, with dire consequences: Grant Napear, a broadcaster, was fired by KTHK Sports 1140, a radio station, and had to resign from Sacramento Kings TV, for tweeting ‘All Lives Matter’ when asked what he thought of BLM.

We have truly entered the alternative reality of Oceania, where our freedom to hold nonapproved versions of the truth is severely threatened.  We need to speak out louder — and boldly — before it is too late. Or else, we will have to swallow what the Ministry of Truth force-feeds us.

Turning the Clock Forward

By Christopher Garbacz

If America returned to 1950s family values with obvious improvements (constitutional civil rights and reasonable environmental regulations), would we be turning the clock back or forward? There is substantial evidence that this would turn the clock forward, given society’s backward trend over the last sixty years –family breakdown, retreat from religion, and educational and moral malaise. When Attorney General William Barr spoke at the Notre Dame Law School, he attributed this decline primarily to the progressive movement.

Amy Wax and Larry Alexander argued for a return to 1950s values (the bourgeois culture that reigned from the 1940s to the mid-1960s) to mend America’s torn social fabric and disparate class gap:

That culture laid out the script we all were supposed to follow: Get married before you have children and strive to stay married for their sake. Get the education you need for gainful employment, work hard, and avoid idleness. Go the extra mile for your employer or client. Be a patriot, ready to serve the country. Be neighborly, civic-minded, and charitable. Avoid coarse language in public. Be respectful of authority. Eschew substance abuse and crime.

Wax and Alexander do not offer a path back to the script. Congress has no will to act, and the President cannot legislate. However, a revitalized federal court system, starting with the Supreme Court (“SCOTUS”), can lead the way. President Trump has moved the Court in the direction that would allow it to reverse past activism. Putting a strict constructionist in Justice Ginsburg’s seat is the precursor to another four years of Trump that would move the federal courts in this direction for decades to come.

This essay suggests ten key areas of change for SCOTUS, each of which could help turn America around. These changes might not contain all that needs to be done to restore the republic, but they would move us far down the path. These categories allow a cohesive, united country to emerge to solve our problems in an innovative process not possible under the current administrative state.

Category I. Taxation.

Legal scholar Richard Epstein argues that the Fifth Amendment – by mandating compensation for property seized for public use — means that higher tax rates on different people constitute an illegal “taking.” Progressive taxes, therefore, are illegal. The alternative is a flat tax law that could be codified in a couple of hundred pages instead of the current 80,000 pages.  It would be a tremendous stimulus to the economy – perhaps up to a 3% economic growth rate over time.

Category II.  Federal Agencies and Regulations Revoked.

The Education Department could be a test case because education policy falls under state authority. The President could say that the Feds have no authority in education and withhold funding from the Education Department.  If the Supreme Court agrees, this process could be repeated in numerous other cases.  The President could issue an Executive Order defunding dozens of agencies that are not constitutionally authorized, leading to a scaled-back Federal government as initially designed.

Also, SCOTUS can declare Federal government regulations unconstitutional in many cases. Courts can fill in legislative gaps as they did before the rise of the administrative state. These regulatory rollbacks could generate as much as a 2% economic growth rate over time.

Since tens of thousands of state and local entities are tied to federal regulations hand and foot, the decline of the administrative state would free them as well.

Category III. Education.

Education vouchers should prevail throughout schools. This would free education, allowing schools, new and old, to thrive in a competitive environment.

Category IV. Religion.

SCOTUS should return prayer to public schools and the public square and allow governments to post the Ten Commandments. Religious freedom reigns both privately and publicly.

Category V. Equality.

SCOTUS’s decisions should reflect that America is not a nation of warring tribes, that all citizens are created equal before the law, and that no one is more equal than another.

Category VI. Free Speech.

A decision should affirm that free speech is a civil right enforceable under the civil rights laws, making it illegal to enforce speech codes on campuses or elsewhere. The FBI can arrest those who impede free speech, those rioting against free speech, and those who foment violent action against free speech, including those who plan and fund such actions. The FBI may recommend prosecution to the DOJ’s Office of Civil Rights.

Category VII. Self-Esteem Decisions.

The abortion, homosexual marriage and transgender decisions were “self-esteem decisions.” Activist courts essentially said, “To improve your group self-esteem, we shall create a special right that’s not in the Constitution.” The Court should rethink these rulings, not only because abortion is abhorrent, marriage is a settled, and transgenders need mental health care, not legal approval, but because these decisions undermine the Constitution. SCOTUS should not operate by saying, “Anything goes, as long as you have the votes.”

Category VIII. Immigration.

SCOTUS should affirm that the President has broad powers under the law to restrict immigrant entry to the country, that petitioning to enter the country does not equal a right to citizenship, and that the President has broad powers to expel non-citizens from the country.

Category IX Second Amendment.

The Court must roll back gun control laws.

Category X. The Constitution.

The Court can use its bully pulpit to encourage everyone to read and understand the Constitution, something few Americans do. As more citizens appreciate its basic tenets, it will be more difficult to subvert. People will dismiss the notion of mandated equal outcomes in favor of constitutionally mandated equality of opportunity.


Will all these categories play out as suggested? Maybe not, but we can evaluate the concept of a realistic proposal in light of SCOTUS history. Would ordinary Americans have thought an activist Supreme Court’s decisions would be realistic?

If the Court acted on the above categories, over time, America would rediscover its “America The Beautiful” destiny. The DC swamp would become solid ground. Congressional vote value would plummet along with lobbyist salaries. Ideas would have to compete in a real marketplace of ideas. Education would thrive. Religion would be planted in fertile soil. We would be Americans, not a nation of warring tribes. Serious immigration problems would be reduced. The environment and the economy would be appropriately balanced. Free enterprise and untold innovation would emerge, leading America and the world to new heights. Western civilization would be robust. The clock would be set forward, and an enhanced version of American values would prevail to the great advantage of young and old.

The Supreme Court can be a positive or negative force. When it is in a “living constitution mode,” it is a dangerous oligarchy with the final say over everything, making it the most powerful institution in America.

Originalist orientation puts a brake on how far the judicial oligarchy can go, but we’re still left with a ruling oligarchy. The three branches of government are supposed to be equal.  How can they be equal if one branch is Supreme? By shrinking government and limiting its reach, a strict constructionist Court can return the American government to its proper constitutional balance.

Old Joe Biden: Unfit for Office

By Gary M. Wilmott

Never in American history has a major political party nominated two candidates for president and vice-president who are so manifestly unfit for the elective offices they seek.

Joe Biden, the corrupt, unaccomplished 47-year career politician, with a reputation of having been a proud segregationist, an unabashed plagiarist and liar, a resolute tale-teller, and a serial flip-flopper, is pretending to head up a radical social-democratic ticket for President of the United States that includes as his running mate the ambitious, disagreeable junior senator from California: Kamala Harris.

Biden, Obama’s vice-presidential lackey for eight years (a period of unprecedented corruption and personal enrichment for both men), has always craved power and attention.  But unfortunately for Joe, his mouth, hands, and nose have consistently undermined his presidential ambitions.

This year, courtesy of an international pandemic, unprecedented social unrest, an obsequious leftist media, and the customary DNC shenanigans, Biden miraculously emerged from the basement as the last Democrat candidate standing — figuratively speaking, of course.

Touted as the most acceptable contender in a general election, the ever-manipulative DNC, with assists from Majority Whip James Clyburn, foisted the 77-year old empty suit on the Democrat voters, despite an interminable career of incompetence and uncontrollable pervy conduct around women and young girls, including a credible allegation of sexual assault.

Joe Biden is the DNC’s so-called “empathy candidate,” and “restorer of America’s soul.”  Uncle Joe — the perpetual advocate of blue-collar, lunch-bucket workers, friend of the common man, and supposed champion of every solution destined to restore calm to the country and dignity to the White House — is the candidate that cares about you. Not like the brash, egotistical, illegitimate, and unrefined President Trump.

And yet, despite a lethargic, uninspiring campaign, and a shocking dearth of mental competence and physical vivacity on Joe’s part, Biden stands incredibly today, at the pinnacle of his political career; anointed as the Democrat Party’s nominee for president, despite two prior, failed attempts, including one in the last century.

Joe’s good fortune, however, is based on a lie; a political mythology, as it were, deviously by the elite power brokers,  that Joe was, and still is, a moderate and is therefore, the most electable Democrat out there.  It cannot be based on the candidate’s unifying, optimistic, and patriotic vision for the future, because there is none.  There are no reasonable, practical, and substantive ideas being proffered regarding freedom, liberty, prosperity, and security for the American people.  On the contrary, the Harris-Biden candidacy is distinguished by a dark, overtly divisive, and destructive agenda, masked most days by shameless untruths and unrelenting criticism of President Trump. So much for empathy and unity.

Once the nomination was secured, Biden promptly sold his soul to the radical left wing of the Democrat Party for the purpose of appeasing the puppet masters and fulfilling his lifelong dream. Biden, the overrated, aging, and broken-down pol just wants to be president. And perhaps even more so, “Dr. Jill” wants to be First Lady.  If Joe needs to be scripted, guided, and controlled by radical left-wing power brokers and his stonyhearted wife, so be it.  Integrity, honesty, and principled positions are not essential elements of the Biden’s quest for power, perks, and prestige.  Come On, Man!

In his effort to bamboozle the American voter, Biden has effectively embraced the anti-American, Marxist policies of Obama, Sanders, and Ocasio-Cortez while still pretending to be a moderate.  The treasonous fake news media and propaganda arm of the DNC have enthusiastically aided and abetted Biden as they shamelessly promote the centrist lie.

Sadly, this dishonest and extremely corrosive strategy, if successful, will only serve to hasten the destruction of the America as we know it.  Socialist-Marxist policies implemented by a radical Harris-Biden administration will undoubtedly diminish our freedoms, our liberty, threaten our security, and severely impact our daily pursuit of happiness and prosperity.  We would be on the fast-track to Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of America.

It’s not the radical, anti-American policies that make Joe Biden unfit for office, however.  Rather it is the indisputable fact that Joe is not all there. Joe Biden is a hollow man. He is incredibly low energy, with obviously declining faculties. Joe Biden is physically and mentally incapable of performing the duties and responsibilities of the most difficult job in the world.  Joe Biden does not have the cognitive abilities to  string coherent sentences together without the use of notes or teleprompter, let alone make critical decisions.  Physically and mentally, Biden is a shell of his former self.

The prospect of a 78-year-old man of such diminished capacities in the White House is terrifying, to say the least. Coupled with his unprincipled embrace of hard-left policies, a Biden presidency would pose an unprecedented danger to the country.  A President Biden on the national and international stage would be an embarrassment to America and would confer way too much power and influence on Barack Obama and Valerie Jarrett (Obama’s brain), and the ambitious, “harpy in waiting,” Kamala Harris.

There can be no doubt, that a President Joe Biden would merely be a figurehead. A dithering and doddering Biden will be allowed to masquerade as POTUS until such time as the puppeteers find it expedient to wheel Joe and his security blanket out the White House door, replaced by Kamala Harris.  Harris in fact, has publicly and accurately stated that the correct designation, is in fact, the “Harris-Biden ticket.” Kamala knows the plan, and apparently Joe is okay with his “second fiddle” status as he has recently confirmed the reality of a Harris-Biden ticket. The truth is that the Harris -Biden campaign is nothing more than a cynical manipulation of public opinion, with Biden being the empty vessel by which power is attained.


Trump’s announcement that schools must teach patriotism inflames leftists

By Andrea Widburg

On Thursday, President Trump announced an upcoming executive order intended to return patriotism to American education.  The “1776 Commission” will counter the Critical Race Theory training that schools across America are embracing under the banner of the New York Times’ racist and divisive 1619 Project.

Leftists responded with fury, charging Trump with everything from imposing non-factual propaganda on American education to creating his version of the “Hitler Youth.”  The response was sickening, but it also showed how badly needed the 1776 Commission is if we are to prevent Marxists from completing their intellectual takeover of America.

Trump seemed to realize only a couple weeks ago that Critical Race Theory (CRT) is growing exponentially fast in America.  This theory is both anti-white and anti-black.  As to whites, it teaches that whites are innately evil and can, at best, be marginally redeemed if they acknowledge how evil, wrong, and racist they are, and then just bow out of life.

As to blacks, CRT teaches them that traditional American virtues such as self-reliance, hard work, ambition, punctuality, faith, etc., are all inextricably intertwined with whiteness.  A black person who embraces those values is subordinating himself to the white privilege worldview and denying his essential blackness.  In other words, CRT encourages the values that have kept generations of blacks stuck in physical and mental ghettoes, and dependent on the Democrat party to fulfill their basic life needs.

Trump’s first attack on CRT was his order that federal agencies may no longer impose CRT on their employees.  Showing how deep the CRT toxin runs in the federal government, the CDC nevertheless announced that it would host a 13-week CRT seminar despite the order, although it was quickly disabused of that idea.

Now Trump is attacking CRT in America’s schools:

“Critical race theory, the 1619 Project, and the crusade against American history is toxic propaganda — an ideological poison that, if not removed, will dissolve the civic bonds that tie us together,” Trump said. “The only path to national unity is through our shared identity as Americans. That is why it is so urgent that we finally restore patriotic education to our schools.”


“The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution are the greatest charters of freedom the world has ever known,” Pence said. “Our Founders knew history, but sadly we live in a time when too many are forgetting history today.”

America’s history isn’t just being forgotten; it’s being perverted as America’s teachers, many of whom embrace the BLM movement, are aggressively inserting CRT into their classes.

Trump’s initiative can’t happen fast enough.  If you’re wondering how important the 1776 Commission is, look at the ugliness and ferocity of the pushback against Trump’s announcement.

Yamiche Alcindor, the BLM propagandist who works for NPR as a faux reporter, cannot understand how the president can walk back the “facts” in the 1619 Project:

Trump is correct that we have to reinstate a balanced and respectful approach to American history in our schools.  If Trump gets another four years in office, he can make it happen.  If he cannot, expect that our schools will swiftly continue their descent into being Marxist propaganda academies.

Falling for the Biggest Hoax in History

By Alicia Colon

It will probably take months if not years for the truth of the Covid-19 pandemic to emerge, but when it does will any politician take responsibility for the lies and disinformation or the damage this hoax caused this great nation? I don’t think so, but what it did prove was what happens when the Democrats are in charge. They may not be in the White House but it is the House that wields the power over legislation and our money.  Couple this power with the useful idiots in the mainstream media to promote the widespread hysteria, and we then had the total capitulation of a frightened nation that accepted an unprecedented total lock-down of its existence. Shame on us.

If the fourth estate had done its job or had any integrity left, it would have reported the actual figures of the corona-virus’ impact instead of what would generate the most fear. So what is the truth? Why did hospitals and doctors count practically all deaths, even motorcycle accidents and cancer deaths, as Covid-19 deaths? Could it be because of extra government funding for these cases?

The CDC released a very controversial report that the actual death rate due to the Covid-19 alone was minuscule compared to what was reported in the mainstream news. Reuters is listing 194,147 as covid deaths as of September 14, 2020.

In an August article by Leslie Eastman in Legal Insurrection.com, a chart was posted with CDC figures:

“To begin with, it doesn’t mean that the virus killed only about 9700 Americans. The data demonstrates that unless there is another underlying health condition, most people infected have very little chance of dying. This is especially true of young people who fall prey to the pathogen.

Yet, those people who had heart conditions, kidney problems, or other medical conditions who died might still be alive except that they were infected with COVID-19.

Since the inception of this pandemic, COVID-19 deaths have been lumped together into a category that included presumed deaths. 

Before the Covid-19 pandemic hit the news, over 12,000 Americans had died in 2019 of the regular flu. This new virus was supposedly deadlier because it was highly contagious, and no one was immune to it. But while the virus originated in Wuhan, China, progressives refused to name it the Chinese virus. Morons were even calling it the European flu. In January, Trump ordered restrictions on flights from China. In February, Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi was suggesting that we should go to Chinatown and hug a Chinese person to show we’re not discriminating against them.

Unless your source of news is only the mainstream press, then you probably have not heard this quote from a Chinese virologist Dr. Li-Meng Yan, who says she did some of the earliest research into COVID-19 last year. She escaped from Hong Kong and had been hiding in fear but has stepped out into the public eye again to make the explosive claim that she has scientific evidence to prove that Covid-19 was human-made in a lab in China.

“When asked where the deadly virus that has killed more than 900,000 around the globe comes from, Yan — speaking via video chat from a secret location — replied, “It comes from the lab — the lab in Wuhan and the lab is controlled by China’s government.” “The first thing is the [meat] market in Wuhan … is a smoke screen and this virus is not from nature,” Yan claimed, explaining that she got “her intelligence from the CDC in China, from the local doctors.”

BTW, Twitter just shut down her account. Quelle surprise!

The truth is that we’ve been lied to continuously since the media decided to scare us to death with bogus data, and our lack of common sense. Since I am high risk due to my age and health issues, I have been self-quarantined for several months. My daughter and her husband who works for the MTA came down with the virus and recovered because they are young and had no serious health issues. In other words, the young and healthy are unlikely to succumb and should never have been locked down. The vulnerable, on the other hand, needed to take proper steps to quarantine voluntarily.

When the Covid-19 press conferences began with the medical experts dispensing their opinions and advice, Dr. Anthony Fauci became the so-called expert to go to, but I never cared or trusted him. Fauci would roll his eyes, bring his hand to head, and smirk while Trump was talking and once when leaving the room nodded in solidarity with the CNN reporter. The MSM made him a superstar in spite of the fact that he kept changing his opinion and hadn’t seen a patient in over 35 years.


In previous severe flu seasons, there were much higher death rates yet there were no mandatory lock-downs.  Why do I call this pandemic a hoax?  The only reason why politicians, especially the Democrats in charge, pushed for shutting down the economy was because economic destruction was their ultimate goal. Trump’s strong economy, low unemployment numbers for all Americans was a real obstacle to a Joe Biden victory. Democrats have seized on this pandemic because they never let a crisis go to waste.

Americans have been gas lighted. We can’t take anything reported by the New York Times, Washington Post, Associated Press, Reuters, CNN, MSNBC, the Drudge Report and the Alphabet Networks as gospel because it’s all designed to frighten and delay the recovery. Dr. Fauci insists that things will not return to normal until 2021. Joe Biden if elected will mandate mandatory mask wearing for all. What a joke. Masks don’t even work and I feel sorry for all those required to wear them all day at work because they are breathing in carbon dioxide and moisture.

There is one good thing about the pandemic. I wrote before about the new thrilling novel, Silent Strike, by Dr. Francis Bandettini and Matt Nilsen, about a deadly bio attack by Iran. What made it deadly was the fact that we were unable to handle the shortage of medical equipment needed to battle the epidemic of respiratory cases. This administration proved that it could produce whatever we needed in a short space of time. Kudos to our POTUS.

I hope and pray that if President Trump is reelected and the Democrats lose the House and the state legislatures in the states overrun by Antifa riots and BLM protests, normalcy will return swiftly and the economy will boom.

From my lips to God’s ears.


Fight — or the Dems Will Steal This Election.

By William L. Gensert

It did not start when Barack Obama descended from the heavens to lead an ignorant, savage, and unfair country. Yet he certainly epitomized the left’s hoped for “new America” of which his bitter half only then became proud.

Schools have been teaching identity politics to our children for decades. The left seeks to abrogate of our nation’s moral fiber with the deliberate destruction of absolute right and wrong under written and duly enacted law. While we seek to debate, they seek to silence. While we accept differences of opinion, they cancel. While we would live and let live, they will burn it all down. We see the consequences of this in the disaffected youth playing “resistance” dress-up and burning down our cities.

The process of using identity politics to maximize victimhood has damaged the values and principles this nation was founded upon and its citizens have lived by. Self-sufficiency, taking responsibility for one’s own actions, equality under the law, property rights, and law and order have been cast aside in favor of Critical Race Theory and the 1619 Project.

It is the left’s attempt to see anarchy reign in our streets as rioters run amok, steeped in the victim hood and righteous violence taught to them all their lives. It is all part of their plan to steal the presidency, one way or another.

Yet, it is important to note the BLM and Antifa goons currently wreaking havoc are doing so almost exclusively in America’s Democrat-run states and cities.

It is a fake “revolution,” executed for the cameras and done to justify chaos as a tool to be used on a grand scale this election. It is a “revolution” that persists only under the aegis of the Democratic Party of America and the blind blessings of its propaganda arm, the media. This faux rebellion is the Obama of insurrections, a mile wide and an inch deep. It exists solely because right-minded Americans “have not yet begun to fight.”

The left hopes to use the upheaval to steal this election and banish America to the ash heap of history. To the left, people must either be outraged victims, with every brutality undertaken against others deigned acceptable, no matter how violent and destructive, or they are oppressors who deserve outrage and atrocity.

When you need people to believe something new for your plans to succeed, you must first destroy what they believe in presently.

In this they have failed. Trump’s win in 2016 showed the left they cannot depend on free and fair elections. To prevail in their plan to take over America, they would need an army. With the training of outraged victims and the removal of any restraint or consequences for their actions, they believe they have built one. It is an army they plan to deploy with vengeance, before, during, and after the actual vote.

After years of using the tools of government and bureaucracy to unsuccessfully rid the world of the troublesome Trump, the left has had enough. They are planning this Presidential Election to be the last one they will need to steal. After attaining power, they plan to rig all future elections so they cannot lose.

The left aims to use the riots to keep people from voting on Election Day. Therefore, we are seeing a new tactic of storming restaurants and physically attacking and hurling obloquy at bewildered and frightened diners. The Democrats want to create an ascendant, all-encompassing aura of universal fear among voters to suppress turnout and preclude a Trump landslide.

The riots are integral to the left’s purposes; they will not be stopped by anything other than force or surrender. Biden is the “surrender.” Trump and the American people are the “force.”

If Biden fails to attain victory at the polls, they will ratchet up the savagery as the “will of the people” afterward to either steal the presidency in the courts or depose Trump in a mostly unpeaceful coup.

We know this because they have told us so. Just as with training the nation to accept the violence from their minions before, during, and after the election, they are advertising this election as one that will not be over when the polls close and not settled until the courts, California, Oregon, Washington State, and the armed forces have their say. Hillary told moldering Joe to never concede, no matter the vote count, because she knows vote counts can be changed. Electoral votes can be stolen. In fact, that is part of their plan.

Recently the Democrats published a 22-page report entitled: “Preventing a Disrupted Presidential Election” from an organization called the Transition Integrity Project led by Georgetown law professor Rosa Brooks, among others. In it they described war-gaming four possible electoral results. The interesting outcome was the one where Trump won and Biden, played by political hack John Podesta, refused to concede and instead convinced California, Washington, and Oregon to threaten secession. They would then let the army decide what to do.

It doesn’t take a conspiracy nut to see the connection in letting the army decide the election and the coordinated “Trump hates and disrespects the military” smear by Jeffery Goldberg of the Atlantic, the same-day release of the military men denigrating Trump commercial, and the softball question and already prepared answer from Biden at his press conference.

As Gore tried to do with his, “we count until I win” strategy in 2000, in 2020, the Democrats and their newly hired 600 lawyers are going to insist that every vote be counted no matter how long it takes. And when the mail-in votes suspiciously turn a Trump landslide into a Biden victory, they will declare Democrats believe in science and were afraid of COVID and therefore, voted by mail.

Why do you think Biden wears the mask and keeps mentioning the pandemic? Why do you think Democrat governors are keeping economies closed even though COVID is fast disappearing as a threat?

The riots were kept alive by Democrats to get Americans used to the violence that they will use to help steal this election. The vote by mail push is to make it easier to steal. The lawyers are to make it legal for them to do so.

It does not have to be this way. Americans in both blue and red states can and should be prepared to defend themselves, their families, their livelihoods, their property, and their vote when challenged by those on the left. America is comprised of the best armed and trained citizenry this world has ever seen. It is why the 2nd Amendment will be the first thing the left will come after should they prevail. An armed people can say, “No!” It is high time Americans said, “Hell No!” A popular mostly peaceful uprising from the right is not uncalled for in the situation we find the nation in.

Also, Trump is also no dope. They have thrown everything at the man for years and he has beaten them silly at every turn. Only the naïve would believe that he is not aware of what the left is trying to do and does not have a plan to counter it. That is the thing with successful businessmen — they think in exigent circumstances and contingencies.

The easiest way to kill this coup-baby in the crib is for Americans to get out and vote. If Republicans hold onto the Senate and take the House, and if the people show up at the polls and give Trump a majority-vote and electoral win of such magnitude that stealing the election would be too obvious, the worm will turn and the left will return to its status of malignant impotence.

There comes a time in the “course of human events” when people need to stand up and fight for what they believe in.

If the people believe in America, now is that time.




‘Something’s going on here and it’s much bigger than people think’

By Monica Showalter

Following the conclusion of the Republican National Convention, the far left’s “fiery but peaceful” protesters had a pretty disgusting plan: instead of just yelling at the top of their lungs from the outside, or attempting to disrupt the convention from the inside, or burning and looting nearby shops to give the whole thing a bad public relations odor, they decided to physically attack Republicans as they exited the convention.  That was the plan.

They certainly attacked random nobodies exiting the front, but when Sen. Rand Paul attempted to get to his hotel two blocks away on foot after waiting 45 minutes at the wrong hotel, the mobs recognized him and got really excited, first swarming him and his wife in a group of 30, and then swelling to 60, and then to a 120-sized turban mob.  They made lunging attacks at the senator and his luckily spotted police escort who were trying to protect Paul and his wife and deflect the “protesters.”

It was a travesty.  Paul described it very well.

Some excerpts: “We cannot go outside now, it’s too dangerous.”

“The United States is going to become Portland.”

“We’ll eff you up.”

“This is happening in all our cities, thank God for the police.”

“I want to live the life of a normal person, where I go to the grocery store and buy groceries, or stop at the Minute-Mart.”

Paul’s most important statement came here:

“This also is not normal.  There’s something … going on here.  This is like, the FBI needs to be involved.”

And more specifically, as the Fox News reporter probed:

My feeling is there is interstate criminal traffic being paid for across state lines, but you won’t know it unless you arrest them. Otherwise you just think oh these are just some normal hoodlums from a big city. I promise you that at least some of these members and people who attacked us were not from D.C. They flew here on a plane, they’ve all got fresh new clothes, and they were paid to be here. It is a crime to do that and it needs to be traced. The FBI needs to investigate. But the only way you can do it is you have to arrest people. And usually we say ‘oh, well, you didn’t get hurt, so we’re not going to arrest them.’ They were inciting a riot, and they would have killed us had the police not been there. They all need to be arrested, and I’m not saying forever, but they need to be arrested, questioned, they need to say where you’re staying, and the bills need to be subpoenaed by a judge, to say ‘who paid for your bill, how did you get here on a plane and staying in a fancy hotel, and yet you’re acting like a criminal.’ Something’s going on here and it’s much bigger than people think. But the bottom line is, we can’t let the United States become Portland and that’s what my fear is…

This is pretty much the most important question that can be asked of any of this lunacy engulfing the country.

Two things stand out.

One, dangerously opaque foundations, such as the Tides Foundation, which takes cash in big amounts from anonymous donors and has been known to contribute to terroristic organizations such as Earth First! and the “Ruckus Society,” have stepped up their donations to “social justice” and “criminal justice” and “racial justice” organizations.  George Soros’s Open Society Foundation, while less opaque, given that the group’s money comes from Soros’s vast fortune as a currency speculator, is in this category, too.  Here is what the New York Post, via the Center for Consumer Freedom, noted:

The New York Post reports today that the secretive Tides Foundation began organizing attacks on President Bush after receiving millions of dollars from foundations controlled by presidential candidate John Kerry’s wife. Tides’ role in this “charitable money-laundering” operation is hardly surprising. After all, for over two decades it has been a major financial clearinghouse for radical activist groups. Many major philanthropies like the Ford Foundation and Pew Charitable Trusts fund projects through Tides to disguise themselves as the funding source.

Anti-consumer beneficiaries of Tides’ “anonymous” funds include Greenpeace, the
Ruckus Society, the Center for Science in the Public Interest, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), and Earth First!. Earth First! spun-off the FBI-certified “terrorist” Earth Liberation Front in 1992. Tides was instrumental in NRDC’s now-infamous (and unfounded) health scare about Alar on apples. NRDC paid the PR firm that was promoting the scare through the Tides Foundation.

Second, the Democrats, who also take money from the donors to these foundations that may be behind these riots, have been curiously silent in their failure to condemn the violence, even on people they know and work with from the Senate building.  Joe Biden made a general condemnation of violence after poll numbers showed that rioter violence was not playing well with the American voters, but he hasn’t said a thing about the attack on Sen. Rand Paul.  His running mate, Kamala Harris, is even worse, witcherily cackling that the violence will never stop, as noted in this well written blog item today by Bill Dunne here.

Paul noted the irony of his own role in attempting to get justice for Breonna Taylor, who was killed in a no-knock raid on apparently the wrong apartment, writing a bill to ban no-knock raids.  But he came off as a little naïve there — these mobs aren’t interested in reform.  They want to tear the whole edifice down, and some huge billionaires are behind them.  More than tanks in the streets, there needs to be an investigation into who’s funding these mobs and arrests of the foundation executives and moneybag billionaires found to be involved.  We still don’t know precisely which ones are doing this, and it’s critical that we find out, because as Harris says, the attacks won’t stop (and we need to know how Harris would know this, too).  Some big swoop-downs need to happen, and one hopes the Trump administration is willing to take on the task or is already on it.  Paul would be wise to initiate some Senate investigation, too, because someone’s getting away with this, and the attacks are growing more brazen, targeting not just shopkeepers, but now police and elected officials.
