Every year, IPOS conducts a poll of people living in Britain to find out how much they trust various professions to tell the truth. At the very bottom of the list scoring as the least trustworthy, are four professions that dominate the media in Britain — journalists, Government ministers, politicians and advertising executives.

Facebook’s fact-checker gets fact-checked

We reported recently how Candace Owens’ Facebook post/video was labelled as false information by an organization used by Facebook to fact-check content. Candace Owens is a popular black Conservative woman. Owens’ video stated at the time that Biden was “literally and legally not the President-elect” which he isn’t until he is approved by the electoral college. However, Facebook’s fact-checker declared her video as “false” and the same message was given to everyone who shared it.

Why was Johns Hopkins’ COVID report retracted?

There have been nearly 300,00 deaths from COVID this year in the US, but a study of data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control by a lecturer at Johns Hopkins University came to the startling conclusion that COVID has not led to an increase in the overall number of deaths in the U.S. Based on everything you have heard in the mainstream media, you would have expected there was a dramatic increase.

What the smartest person in the room had to say?

In a Sept. 9, 2020 article, the New York Times described Navid Keshavarz-Ni, a cyber-crimes security expert as “always the smartest person in the room.” So what did Keshavarz-Ni, whose cyber-security expertise has been sought out by the FBI, CIA, Department of Homeland Security, the US Military’s counter intelligence unit, and major banks around the world, allege about the recent US Federal Election? WND explains: A cyber-crime expert who recently was praised by the New York Times declared in a sworn affidavit in a Sidney Powell lawsuit that hundreds of thousands votes were shifted from President Trump to Joe Biden in battleground states. Navid Keshavarz-Nia, the Times said in September in a glowing report, was regarded by those who worked with him as “always the smartest person in the room.” […] “I conclude with high confidence that the election 2020 data were altered in all battleground states resulting in a hundreds of thousands of votes that were cast for President Trump to be transferred to Vice President Biden,” he wrote. The alterations, he added, resulted from …

Using strip clubs to be as wise as serpents?

When Jesus was sending out His disciples to preach the Gospel, the Lord gave them some very strange advice, He said: 16 “Behold, I am sending you out as sheep in the midst of wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves. (Matthew 10:16 ESV) Many struggle to interpret what Jesus meant by this. Biblically, the serpent was portrayed as crafty and deceptive when it tempted Adam and Eve to fall into sin. Meanwhile, the dove was considered clean, a picture of innocence and the Holy Spirit. So how do these two conflicting metaphors work together? I think the glue that brings them together is that the disciples were being sent out as sheep among wolves. The church has enemies. We need to understand how this enemy works and be as crafty when it comes to dealing with them. But this craftiness needs to be balanced with the innocence of doves meaning we can’t use this craftiness to take personal advantage of others. A couple recent stories may portray this balance at work. As …

Growing support of civil disobedience for church services: Poll

According to a recent poll conducted by Public Religion Research Institute, and Ryan Burge, an Eastern Illinois University professor, there is a growing support for churches to defy the COVID-1984 lockdowns and start holding church services. But here is what is really bizarre. The poll showed that while over 60% of Americans were fine with church’s defying COVID0-1984 lockdowns, only 34% of church attenders supported such acts of civil disobedience.

Antifa launches Thanksgiving Day attack in Portland

On Thanksgiving Day, Antifa, a left-wing anarchist group, attacked a veteran’s war memorial in Portland, toppling the statue on top and as well vandalizing several businesses in down town Portland. This even included a grocery store that openly supported the Black Lives Matter (BLM). Apparently, BLM is not radical enough. Even though one of its founder is a self-proclaimed “trained Marxist.” Breitbart explains what happened on Thanksgiving day: An Antifa group in Portland, Oregon, called for a Thanksgiving Eve attack on “symbols and structures of colonialism and capitalism.” The incited direct action led to the destruction and vandalism of a veterans’ war memorial and downtown businesses. PNY Youth Liberation Front, a group described as an Antifa group by independent journalist Andy Ngo, tweeted a call for a “decentralized anti-colonial day of action” on Thanksgiving Eve. The message began, “F**k Thanksgiving, f**k Black Friday!” READ: Portland Antifa Attack BLM-Supporting Grocery, War Memorial: ‘F**k Thanksgiving’ Andy Ngo videoed the vandalism (language warning): One Tweet summed it up well: Meanwhile, Oregon’s Democrat Gov. Kate Brown has set up …

Do you see apples or do you see pies?

I was reading an interesting story on Charisma News about an interview with Barry Maracle, a pastor, author and prophet, who is convinced that God has a purpose for your life. Maracle shared a story about his Native American grandfather who was a pastor with the Assemblies of God. His grandfather would bring out a white board and put a small apple seed on it and ask his students what they saw. Immediately they all focussed their attention on the board. But gradually their eyes would shift to the tiny apple seed, and they would describe it. As his grandfather pushed them on what else they saw, some would speak of the giant tree that would spring from that tiny seed. But for his grandfather, even this wasn’t enough, they needed to see beyond that. “My grandpa would say, ‘No, you see bakeries.’ ‘You see apple pie.’ ‘You see everything that produces after its own kind,” said Maracle. Like that tree, we all have a greater purpose in life beyond growing and living. And for …

Death sentence due to COVID-1984 lockdown?

The Daily Mail is reporting that Britain’s lockdown may have severely impacted the health of a 23-year-old mother who now has a cancer life sentence after having three previous appointments cancelled. The Daily Mail explains: A care worker who had three vital medical appointments cancelled due to Covid was told by doctors she had cancer over Zoom.  Kimberley Eccles’s aggressive cancer has now spread and the mum-of-one has been told she only has six months to live. The 23-year-old has been diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare tissue disease her doctors tell her is found in only 1% of the adult population.   She was told the devastating news in August over an online video call with her doctors while her shocked seven-year-old daughter looked on.  READ: Mother-of-one, 23, who had three vital medical appointments cancelled due to Covid is told over ZOOM she has deadly cancer and six months to live British doctors have repeatedly warned the government of the untold medical damage being caused by the lockdowns.

Seattle cuts police funding by 18%

On Monday, Nov. 23, 2020, Seattle City council voted 8-1 to cut police funding by 18% after bending the knee to left-wing extremists in the city demanding funding cuts. The activists were demanding a 50% cut. Newsmax explains: The Seattle City Council approved the city’s 2021 budget with reductions to the police budget, though not as much as activists sought amid mass demonstrations against police brutality over the summer. The council voted Monday to shrink the budget of the Seattle Police Department by about 18%, which includes cuts to overtime and training, KING-TV reported. Dozens of vacant jobs will not be filled and 911 dispatchers and parking enforcement will be moved out of police jurisdiction. Millions of dollars will instead go to community programs. READ: Seattle City Council OKs Budget with Nearly 20 Percent Police Cut Then in addition to this, the city council is also considering making theft legal. KOMO News explains: SEATTLE — The Seattle City Council is considering new legislation that would create a legal loophole that would make substance addiction, mental …

US Supreme Court blocks Cuomo’s church lockdown

New York’s Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo is probably most famous for sending COVID patients to nursing homes and those most vulnerable to the virus. So, when Gov. Cuomo recently implemented COVID-1984 restrictions limiting church attendance in certain areas of the state to 10 or 25, a Catholic Church and two Jewish synagogues challenged Cuomo in court.

Denver mayor tells people to stay home as he flies out for Thanksgiving

According to reports, the Democrat mayor of Denver, Michael Hancock, sent out a tweet telling the commoners living in his city to avoid travel and stay home for Thanksgiving. He then promptly caught a flight to visit his daughter living in Mississippi for a family Thanksgiving. The Daily Wire explains: On Wednesday morning, Denver mayor Michael Hancock’s Twitter account warned citizens that they should stay close to home for Thanksgiving and avoid travel. That tweet came before a flight on Wednesday that Hancock was taking to Houston to visit his daughter in Mississippi, 9Newsreported. Hancock, a Democrat, tweeted on Wednesday morning, “Pass the potatoes, not COVID. Stay home as much as you can, especially if you’re sick. Host virtual gatherings instead of in-person dinners. Avoid travel, if you can. Order your holiday meal from a local eatery. Shop online with a small business for ‪#BlackFriday.” READ: Denver Mayor Tweets, ‘Stay Home… Avoid Travel.’ Then He Takes Flight For Family Thanksgiving, Report Says.

My new favourite spiritual warfare song

We have weapons to pull down spiritual strongholds: 3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 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 (2 Corinthians 10:3-5 NKJ) And in the days of King Jehoshaphat: 21 And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the Lord, and who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying: “Praise the Lord,For His mercy endures forever.” 22 Now when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; and they were defeated. (2 Chronicles 20:21-23 NKJ)

The battle for the true meaning of Christmas continues

The American Nativity Scene (ANS) is an organization in the U.S. dedicated to having a nativity scene set up in every state legislature in America. The goal of ANS is to help keep Christ at the center of the Christmas season and it believes this is ultimately a fight for religious freedom. This year ANS announced that another four more states have agreed to displaying Nativity scenes on their legislative grounds bringing the total to 31. The new additions include: Idaho; Oklahoma; Nevada; West Virginia; and Possibly more will be added. Contrary, to what many people believe, it is not unconstitutional for a privately funded nativity scene to be set up on public property for the Christmas season. The Thomas More Society that provides free legal representation for ANS states that it is a first amendment religious freedom right and fundamentally an issue of Free Speech. In 2019, ANS reported that an additional eight capitols agreed to allow a Nativity scene bringing the total to 27, with 21 of the Nativity Scenes being provided by …

Has Jesus’ childhood home in Nazareth been discovered?

Some are suggesting that an ancient stone house located beneath the Sisters of Nazareth Convent in Nazareth may actually be the house that Jesus grew up in. In his book, The Sisters of Nazareth Convent: A Roman-period, Byzantine and Crusader site in central Nazareth, Professor Ken Dark, an archaeologist at the University of Reading, states that there is evidence that the home partially carved into the side of a limestone hill was constructed in the first century or earlier and was revered by early believers. A group of archaeologists had been working at the site since 2006. The property was donated to the Sister of Nazareth Convent in the 19th century, and led to the construction of their convent. But prior to this, the archaeologists discovered that previous churches had been built at the site. A Byzantine cave church had been built into the hill beside the first-century house in the fourth century. The larger cave church had mosaics and a large marble screen common to Byzantine churches of the day. There is also evidence …

Communist China proposes world tracking system

Taking a page out of the Book of Revelation, Communist China’s tyrant for life, Xi Jinping, is proposing the world embrace a system using QR codes that would track every citizen of the world. He made the recommendation during a recent virtual meeting of the G20. His justification for this is to keep tabs on the spread of the COVID-1984 virus that originated in China. China has been using the system, that tracks people in real time, in a few of its cities as another layer of oppression.

The COVID ‘asymptomatic’ cover-up?

Some governments and media seem intent on terrorizing people into submission by posting the latest updates on the number of new COVID cases. But deliberate or not, what is missing in those numbers is some very important data, like how many who tested positive are asymptomatic? This means they tested positive for COVID, but did not get sick.

Britain’s ‘illegal’ underground church movement

Reminiscent of the underground churches in Iran and Communist China, churches in Britain have been forced to secretly go underground to hold services in the face of the government’s COVID-1984 lockdowns. And they don’t use social media or texts to spread word about these illegal services, they do it the old-fashioned way — word of mouth — in order to avoid detection.

Study: Vitamin D may increase cancer survival rates

You probably think I must own stocks in a vitamin D manufacturer? Well, I don’t. I have previously reported on several studies suggesting that low levels of vitamin D may make us vulnerable to COVID-19. However, there may be an additional benefit to taking vitamin D. A recent study conducted by researchers at Harvard revealed regularly taking vitamin D supplements may reduce our chances of dying from cancer. However, researchers are uncertain as to why.

Left wing anarchists target Portland businesses, again

The rioting apparently hasn’t stopped in Portland, Oregon and on Friday night, Nov. 20, 2020, a small group of left-wing anarchists took to the streets vandalizing several small businesses. The Blaze explains: Destructive saboteurs purposely damaged at least two dozen businesses in Portland on Friday night. The Portland Police Bureau declared that the night of civil unrest resulted in “widespread destruction to businesses in Hollywood neighborhood.” The Portland Police Bureau stated that a “group of nearly 50 people gathered” and then “vandalized many businesses including many small businesses in their path.” The vandals were “dressed in all black and seen wearing helmets and carrying umbrellas.” READ: ‘Widespread destruction to businesses’ in Portland by violent black bloc vandals

How to manufacture a COVID-1984 crisis?

I was as shocked by the fact the Daily Mail published the article, as I was by the information in it. Essentially, it shows that a COVID-1984 crisis is being manufactured to justify a second lockdown of Britain. People are screaming that hospitals are being overrun and people are dropping on like flies from COVID. The projected deaths are being exaggerated to create terror.

A Third Jewish Temple, Yea or Nay?

There have been two temples in Israel’s history. The first built by King Solomon, was destroyed in 586 BC by the Babylonians and a second one built by Ezra when King Cyrus and Darius allowed the Jews to return to Jerusalem from their Babylonian. This second Temple underwent major renovations by King Herod and it was the temple that Jesus visited. That second Temple was obliterated by the Romans in 70 AD and since then Orthodox Jews believe that God wants a third Temple built based on prophecies in Ezekiel that spoke of a temple that did not fit the descriptions of the previous two temples (Ezekiel 40-42). According to Israel365 news, an orthodox Jewish news site, many orthodox Jews are convinced a third temple must be built. They also believe that it will be much larger than the first two because it needs to make room for arrival of the gentiles who will be part of the temple worship (Isaiah 2:2-3). Israel365 writes: The details of the prophecy related to the building of the …
