It seems to fall on me to write about pertinent news stories that the vast majority of Christian conservatives choose to ignore. If the news doesn’t do something to glorify Donald Trump, Israel or America’s foreign wars, most Christian conservatives are not interested in it. Nevertheless, here are a few important news stories that need to be covered, the indifference of Christian conservatives notwithstanding.
Many County Sheriffs Are Refusing To Enforce “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation Laws
Despite the fact that 99% of America’s evangelical pastors are completely mute regarding the tyrannical gun confiscation laws being proposed in several states (14 states have passed these gun confiscation bills so far—and the governor of Colorado is days away from signing a “red flag” bill into law, making it 15 states) and in Washington, D.C. (the chief proponents being Republicans Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio and Donald Trump), many county sheriffs across the country are bravely refusing to enforce these Hitlerian laws.
Weld County Sheriff Steve Reams disagrees so much with a gun bill making its way through the Colorado legislature that he's willing to go to jail rather than enforce it.
"It's a matter of doing what's right," he said.
He's not the only one who feels so strongly.
The controversial "red flag" bill aims to seize guns temporarily from people who are deemed to be a threat to themselves or others.
But more than half of Colorado's 64 counties officially oppose the bill. Many have even declared themselves Second Amendment "sanctuary" counties in protest.
Failure to enforce a court order to seize a person's guns could mean sheriffs being found in contempt. A judge could fine them indefinitely, or even send them to jail to force them to comply.
Reams says it's a sacrifice he'd be forced to make.
Colorado is not the only State in which county sheriffs are refusing to enforce “red flag” gun confiscation laws. Sheriffs all over the country (especially in the West) are taking the same stand. For example, over a dozen sheriffs in Washington State are refusing to enforce newly enacted gun control laws.
Bob Songer, the sheriff of Klickitat County, a rural county in southern Washington, said that the law violated gun owners’ rights.
“There is no way in hell I’m going to be going after their guns if they are honest citizens,” he said. “What I’ve told people is: I’m not giving up my guns, and I don’t expect them to give up theirs.”
The sheriff dismissed the pressure from the state’s attorney general to abide by the law.
“They are not the boss of the sheriff,” he said. “The only bosses I have are the voters of Klickitat County.”
“Red flag” gun confiscation laws are the most serious threat to the liberties of the American people since Lexington Green. And where are America’s pastors? Dead silent! If they say anything, they speak IN FAVOR of these draconian laws. I am thoroughly and completely disgusted with these so-called preachers. Why the American people continue to support these good-for-nothing preachers is beyond me. By their refusal to take a vocal and vociferous stand against these gun confiscation laws, they are as culpable of the destruction of our liberties as any gun-grabbing liberal Democrat—probably more so.
I urge folks to share this short video presentation of an open letter to our legislators, judges and lawmen regarding the enactment of these communist “red flag” gun confiscation laws that I recently delivered to the folks at Liberty Fellowship in Kalispell, Montana. Please share it with everyone you can. Maybe it will help to awaken at least some people.
It is disgraceful that our pastors would sit back in sheepish timidity and leave it to sheriffs to lose their jobs or go to jail for doing what every pastor in America should be doing: RALLYING THE NATION IN DEFENSE OF OUR GOD-GIVEN LIBERTIES.
America Is In Full Attack Mode Against Parental Authority
All over America, government agencies are attacking the right of parents to not vaccinate their children if they so desire. This story is out of Arizona:
A group of heavily armed police officers in tactical gear broke down the door of an Arizona home last month, entering with their guns drawn and shouting "come out with your hands up!" — all so they could remove a toddler with a fever whose parents refused to bring him to the hospital.
The 2-year-old boy was unvaccinated, and his parents have each been charged with child abuse after refusing to bring him to the emergency room and ignoring doctors' orders to do so.
At 1:24 a.m., a group of officers broke down the door, kicking it in, and entered the home with their guns drawn and what appeared to be a riot shield, shouting at the parents to come out with their hands up.
A state investigator later said in court that the toddler was eventually diagnosed with RSV, a respiratory virus that typically causes mild, cold-like symptoms but can sometimes be dangerous for young children, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
All three of the couple's children are now in the custody of the Arizona Department of Children's Safety.
The attacks being perpetrated against parents who choose to not vaccinate their children is something out of Mao’s China.
Let me ask you: If a person has been vaccinated, why should they worry about someone who hasn’t been vaccinated? After all, that’s why they were vaccinated: to protect themselves from getting someone else’s disease, right? If they and their children are protected, why the hysteria against parents who choose to not vaccinate their children? As with gun laws, it is not about protection; it is about control.
And there is this question: Why do pro-life Christians allow their children to receive vaccinations, knowing that many—if not most—vaccines that are injected into their bodies these days contain tissue that is harvested from aborted babies?
Killing a human being and then using the body parts for the benefit of another human being is tantamount to cannibalism. No aborted baby had an opportunity to donate their organs or body parts to someone else after their death. This is nothing more than the for-profit merchandising of human bodies. Make no mistake: The selling of aborted baby body parts is BIG BUSINESS. Such a practice is beyond morbid and ghastly. Yet, Christians by the millions not only willingly vaccinate their children with the body parts of aborted babies, they sit in hypocritical judgment over those parents who choose to not vaccinate their children with aborted baby body parts.
Plus, if vaccinations are so safe, why has the government shelled out over $4 billion since 1989 to pay for medical complications (including deaths) that were directly caused by vaccinations?
But the bottom line is, this decision belongs to the parents and the parents only. Think about it: Parents are not even given the option of making an informed decision. They are not told about the vaccine’s ingredients or potential risks. If these vaccinations are so wonderful, why must they be FORCED on people? And the truth is: As in the Arizona story mentioned above, many people in government (and, tragically, even some physicians and educators) believe that our children do not belong to us; they believe them to be wards of the state.
Let this sink in: We have government agencies confiscating our firearms and seizing our very own children, and pastors and Christian conservatives sit back and say NOTHING. What can be more precious and valuable to us than our means of self-defense and the right to raise our own children? Yet, pastors are too busy making everybody feel good on Sunday morning to bother to say anything about these tyrannical abuses of power. Without a doubt, these are among the most cowardly, contemptible clergymen on earth.
Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Killing Thousands, Most Of Whom Are Innocent Women And Children
While Christian conservatives continue to look the other way, Israel continues to massacre innocent civilians—including children—in its occupied territories. This particular attack occurred four years ago, but it is illustrative of the ongoing attacks against innocent Palestinians by Israel. You didn’t hear anything about this attack then, and you aren’t hearing anything about the ongoing attacks now:
United Nations officials described the killing of sleeping children as a disgrace to the world and accused Israel of a serious violation of international law after a school in Gaza being used to shelter Palestinian families was shelled on Wednesday.
At least 15 people, mostly children and women, died when the school in Jabaliya refugee camp was hit by five shells during a night of relentless bombardment across Gaza. More than 100 people were injured.
Israel on Thursday was showing no sign of scaling back Operation Protective Edge, with the military reportedly calling up an additional 16,000 reserves as the offensive entered its 24th day.
At the UN school the first shell came just after the early morning call to prayer, when most of those taking shelter were asleep, crammed into classrooms with what few possessions they had managed to snatch as they fled their homes.
About 3,300 people had squashed into Jabaliya Elementary A&B Girls' School since the Israeli military warned people to leave their homes and neighbourhoods or risk death under intense bombardment. Classroom number one, near the school's entrance, had become home to about 40 people, mostly women and children.
As a shell blasted through the wall, showering occupants with shrapnel and spattering blood on walls and floors, Amna Zantit, 31, scrambled to gather up her three terrified infants in a panicked bid for the relative safety of the schoolyard. "Everyone was trying to escape," she said, clutching her eight-month old baby tightly. Minutes later, a second shell slammed through the roof of the two-storey school. At least 15 people were killed and more than 100 injured. Most were women or children.
The Israeli military said it had targeted more than 4,100 sites in Gaza since the start of the conflict on 8 July. The death toll in Gaza rose above 1,300 on Wednesday.
The carnage, death and destruction inflicted upon the Palestinian people by the IDF since 1948 rival anything that took place in the concentration camps of history. Israel’s continuous attacks against the Palestinian people (with the financial, military and moral support of the U.S. government—and vast majority of evangelical churches, of course) can only be described as genocidal. Over the past year alone, the IDF has killed hundreds and wounded thousands of Palestinians in what many people are rightly calling war crimes.
The plight of the Palestinians—many of whom are Christians—is almost totally ignored by the American people. And evangelical Christians are the most insensitive and calloused of all to the untold suffering and death of these poor innocent souls.
Since the Rothschild antichrist State of Israel came into existence in 1948, over 5 million Palestinians have been slaughtered by the IDF. Most of these victims were innocent men, women and children. Yet, due to the massive acceptance of the Darby/Scofield Israel-based prophesy propaganda, pastors and churches all over America continue to herald these butchers as “God’s Chosen People.” These preachers have MUCH to answer for.
The Head Of New Zealand’s Largest Mosque Probably Properly Identified Who Carried Out The Recent Mass Killings In That Country
Shortly after the mass killings in a New Zealand mosque, I wrote this on my Facebook page:
I am convinced that most every—if not every—mass shooting is a professional Black Ops event. And the massacre in New Zealand was no exception.
I then went on to identify a few of the indicators that this massacre was carried out—not by one crazed madman—but by a network of professional assassins.
Shortly after I wrote that Facebook post, the chairman of the largest mosque in New Zealand identified who he believed carried out the massacre:
The chairman of New Zealand’s biggest mosque told a rally attended by thousands in the city of Auckland on Saturday that Israel’s intelligence agency, Mossad, was behind the far-right terrorist attack on two Christchurch mosques that left dead fifty people and wounded dozens of others.
In a video posted online, Ahmed Bhamji can be heard saying, “I will not mince my words. I stand here and I say that I have a very, very strong suspicion that there is some group behind him, and I am not afraid to say that I feel that the Mossad is behind this.”
I must admit that the Mossad was the very first organization I thought of when I heard about the New Zealand shootings. Mr. Bhamji is probably right. And he had a lot of guts to say it.
And here is one more little news story that our Christian conservative friends will ignore:
Donald Trump Is About To Hit A Major Milestone—$100 Million In Taxpayer Money Spent On His Golf Trips
Donald Trump is close to hitting a major milestone that has social media buzzing — the $100 million mark for taxpayer funding spent on his golf trips.
The president has taken plenty of heat for both his frequent trips to the golf course and for the costs involved. During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump frequently told voters that he would be too busy to go golfing if he were president. Since taking office, he has hit the links at a rate much higher than Barack Obama — a man who Trump frequently attacked for his golf trips.
This weekend’s golf trips [March 30 - 31, 2019] would likely be enough to put Trump over the $100 million mark. A recent report from the Government Accountability Office found that each of Trump’s golf trips cost taxpayers close to $3.4 million, with most of the costs coming in the form of travel and security costs. Because Trump chooses to golf at his company’s course, many of the costs — like golf cart rentals — end up going back into Trump’s pocket, critics point out. The GAO report found that for four golf trips, the Mar-a-Lago resort was paid a total of $600,000. (Source)
Of course, most Christian conservatives will continue to ignore these stories and disparage me because I dared to report them. So be it. America is fast losing its liberties due to the abject apathy and pathetic partiality of our pastors and churches. Someone must say something. And it appears that that someone is ME. So, there. I said it. And I will keep saying it as long as my Christian conservative brethren won’t say it.
