Guess what saved Democrat NYC councillor’s life?

Well, if you guessed, the controversial, mainstream-bashing malaria drug, hydroxychloroquine, you guessed right. Not only did New York City councillor Paul Vallone credit the drug for saving his life after he caught COVID, he even thanked President Donald Trump for recommending the treatment.

Sweden and COVID: Look who is laughing last

Sweden didn’t lock down the country when the COVID-19 hit. Elementary schools kept going. Businesses stayed open. Their leading epidemiologist doesn’t even want people to wear masks. READ: Sweden’s Top Epidemiologist Says ‘We See No Point In Wearing Masks’ As COVID-19 Cases Drop (“Not even on public transport.”) Sweden was mocked, pilloried, criticized, condemned, chastised for not following the main stream narrative. Instead of quarantining the healthy, they tried to focus their attention on those most vulnerable, the elderly and those with underlying health conditions. Without a lockdown, Sweden officials knew there would be a spike in cases, but their health system handled the surge just fine. And now it is all over in Sweden. New COVID cases and deaths are in an absolute free fall. It is all over because Sweden has achieved herd immunity. Meaning they stopped the pandemic by letting most people get it, knowing full well that the vast majority of people would have minimal to no symptoms. Meanwhile, other countries are now bracing for a second COVID wave and many are …

Justin Bieber and his wife Hailey were water baptized together in July

Several secular media outlets have reported on how pop superstar Justin Bieber and his wife Hailey, the daughter of Stephen Baldwin, were baptized together in an Idaho lake in July. The baptisms were performed by Judah Smith who pastors Churchome in Seattle, Washington. Several family members and at least one celebrity, E! host Jason Kennedy, were present at the baptism. Jason described it as “one of the top moments of my life doing this with you.” Justin shared the experience with his 143 million followers on Instagram writing: “The moment @haileybieber my wife and I got baptized together! This was one of [the] most special moments of my life. Confessing our love and trust in Jesus publicly with our friends and family.” The pop star received nearly 4.5 million likes for the post. Justin was previously baptized in 2014 by New York Hillsong pastor Carl Lentz. When Lentz was unable to find a swimming pool for the water baptism, they approached seven-foot NBA star Tyson Chandler and were able to use his extra-large sized bathtub. …

PORTLAND: Cowards run in packs

Apparently, the rioting is continuing in Portland. I am not sure how many days this is now, but it must be well over two months. Meanwhile, the Democrat mayor of Portland, Ted Wheeler, who actually participated in one riot, keeps his head deeply buried in the sand. And apparently, the rioters have now turned their attention on a police precinct located in the suburbs of Portland. And the people of Portland are trying to stand up for their city. This includes two elderly women, who the rioters turned on. There is an old saying “cowards run in packs.” How many brave left-wing extremists does it take to assault and harass elderly women? One of the elderly women was apparently using a walker. The Daily Wire explains: Rioters again returned to the Portland Police Department’s East Precinct Thursday night, which is in a residential area, where they doused an elderly woman with paint and harassed another who was using a walker. Once again, the Portland Police Department was forced to declare a supposed protest an “unlawful …

Psychiatry journal retracts article

Last fall, the American Journal of Psychiatry published a report stating that the mental health of individuals who were transitioning to a different sex improved after surgery. That study has now been retracted. CBN reports: Last fall, the journal published the results of the study and found the surgeries improved patients’ mental health. But this week, the journal retracted its findings, saying a second look at the subject found no improvement. When asked about how a prestigious journal incorrectly analyzes its data, Dr. Ryan Anderson, the Heritage Foundation’s William E. Simon senior research fellow in American Principles and Public Policy, told CBN News there may have been a preferred outcome for the study. “Human error is a possibility here,” Anderson said. “But there’s also the possibility that there was a preferred outcome for the study. So that they wanted the study to say a certain thing. Obviously, we don’t know in this particular instance whether this was just an honest mistake or if this was motivated research, motivated reasoning to lead to a certain conclusion.” …

Communist China forcing pastors to praise Xi Jinping in sermons, but there is good news

It is unfortunately a good news, bad news scenario. Bitter Winter, an online magazine reporting on religious freedom in Communist China, recently reported that pastors of churches, closed due to COVID, are being told that in order to reopen, they must both praise China’s current Communist tyrant, Xi Jinping, and criticize America in their sermons. These involve churches that are part of the Communist party approved Three-self churches. Essentially, the church pastors must preach Communist Party propaganda instead of sermons from the Bible. Bitter Winter reports that in Henan, 11 churches were not allowed to reopen, because Communist censors did not pre-approve the sermons prepared by their pastors. When pastors did comply, church members were very critical of sermons that lacked any spiritual message. One church member from Henan told Bitter Winter: The government said that churches must preach about national affairs if they want to reopen. With Xi Jinping’s speeches as the main content, it’s better for churches not to reopen.” “Those preachers who agree to preach politics just want their churches to be …

81% of US Blacks do NOT want police funding cut?

A new Gallup poll released on Wednesday (Aug. 5, 2020) suggests that 61% of Blacks in America do not want funding for police cut and 20% implied that they actually wanted the funding for police increased. Actually the question Gallup asked was this: Do people want to “maintain or increase” the police presence in their neighbourhoods? But in my mind that was ultimately a question on police spending, without wording it directly.

Should North American churches transition to house churches in the fall?

A recent article on CBN threw out an interesting idea that maybe churches should look at starting house churches if the recent COVID-19 lockdowns don’t end. The coronavirus has resulted in restrictions being put on church services severely limiting the number of people that can attend a service. Many believe it’s more political than health related because the restrictions on churches are more severe than businesses with very similar vulnerabilities. For example, are people attending a casino any less vulnerable to the Coronavirus, than those attending a church? Obviously not. So, why does a church have more severe restrictions than a casino? When the Coronavirus originally hit and services were prohibited, many churches turned to online services that people watched in the privacy of their homes. Initially it seemed popular, but according to Barna Research the number of people watching online services has been steadily dropping with 32% fewer people watching today, than during the early days of the pandemic. And recently, some large churches, such as Grace Community Church in Los Angeles, pastored by …

Can the common cold help you fight off COVID?

According to researchers at Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin and the Max Planck Institute, the common cold may help people build up an immunity to COVID-19. In a study of the blood of 18 people, who previously had the Coronavirus, the research team discovered the presence of T-helper cells which play an important role in a person’s immune response to the COVID-19 virus. StudyFinds reports: T-helper cells are critical for the development and maintenance of protective antibody responses in humans. Scientists believe these cells may play an important role in the immune response to SARS-CoV-2.” However, they also found that the same T-helper cells were present in 68 people who had never had the Coronavirus. They were uncertain where they come from, but believe the Common Cold may have resulted in the development of these cells providing people at least a partial immunity to COVID-19. StudyFinds reported on the comments of one of the lead researchers, Claudia Gieseck-Thiel: “This suggests that the T-helper cells of healthy individuals react to SARS-CoV-2 because of previous exposure to the endemic …

Powerful testimony reveals no contradiction

One of the ways that atheists and their ilk attack the Bible is by exposing contradictions that they claim occur between the Old and New Testament. In the New Testament, Jesus said that we needed to love our neighbours as ourselves (Mark 12:31) and love our enemies (Matthew 5:44), while the Old Testament talks of an eye for an eye, projecting the idea of like punishment for crimes (Exodus 21:24). They claim these contradictory themes expose a flaw in the Bible’s message. However, in doing this, they make one fundamental error. The Old Testament involved the law set down for the nation of Israel and its courts, and Jesus’ message was personal. It was for the individual, you and me. While the individual needs to forgive any offence done to them, in the more serious cases, the nation must still dispense justice. And this was on display in the sad case involving Darrin Ray. In 2006, while studying counselling with the intent of entering the Christian ministry, Ray and his daughter were on their way …

Cultural Marxism: ‘2 + 2 = 5’

In his novel, 1984, George Orwell used the equation “2 + 2 = 5” to describe the attempt by socialist tyrants to convince people an obvious lie, is true. It was their way of controlling the narrative. And in fact, the Soviet Union even employed an actual poster (see above) when Joseph Stalin implemented his five-year economic plan and later announced it would be completed in four years. It was a tyrant mocking his citizens, because he could. In his book, 1984, Orwell wrote: In the end the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it. Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality, was tacitly denied by their philosophy. The heresy of heresies was common sense. And what was terrifying was not that they would kill you for thinking otherwise, but that they might be right. For, after all, how do we …

VIDEOS: Who are communism’s ‘useful idiots’?

Below are a three videos that may help explains the recent activities of the radical left in America. In the first video, former Lieutenant Colonel Allen West explains the term ‘useful idiots’, that was coined by Vladimir Lenin, the founder of the Soviet Union, to describe those who paved the way for the introduction of communism into a nation. In the second video, G. Edward Griffin, discusses the book Color, Communism and Commons Sense, that was written by a Black man, Manning Johnson, who left the communist movement in the early 1920s, when he realized the Marxists wanted to use the racial problems in the US to destroy America. And of course, I would be completely remiss, if I didn’t include a video of one the founders of the Black Lives Matter movement who says she is a trained Marxist:

Different COVID rules for the political elite

Apparently, the political elite have different rules about COVID-19 than the rest of us. The Mayor of Washington, DC, Muriel Bowser, (D), issued an order on July 24, 2020, demanding that anyone travelling to/and or from high-risk COVID states, such as Georgia that was specifically mentioned, must quarantine for 14 days when they return to the US capitol. But apparently, those rules didn’t apply to the political elite, several of whom attended the funeral of John Lewis, in Atlanta, Georgia. Lewis, who recently died of Pancreatic cancer, was a member of the US House of Representatives until his death. The Blaze explains: According to Roll Call, 50 members of Congress attended Lewis funeral, including: * Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)* Maryland House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.)* House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.)* Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.)* Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) Despite having traveled to Georgia, which Bowser’s office has classified as a “high-risk area,” people in power do not have to self-quarantine upon reentry into the nation’s capital, Bowser’s office told JustTheNews. …

Tracking Justin Trudeau’s ethic’s scandals

Over the last few years, Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has blundered from one ethic’s scandal to the next. However, some allege that the latest scandal smells more like corruption, as Trudeau’s family financially benefited from the Liberal government’s cozy relationship with We Charity. My favourite legal YouTuber, Viva Frei, provides an overview of Trudeau’s scandal-ridden dynasty.

Portland’s radical left now burning Bibles?

Though the rioting have toned down over the last couple of days, last night the radical left was allegedly trying to incite a reaction from the officers inside the federal courthouse, that has been the target of their violence in recent weeks, by trying to tear down the barricades surrounding the building and setting fires, that included burning a pile of Bibles.

Another Study: Lockdowns failed to reduce deaths

Another study confirms that if the dystopian lockdowns were intended to save lives, they failed miserably. The Heritage Foundation’s recent study of ten countries’ reaction to COVID reveals that though broad ranged lockdowns did not work, there were things that did reduce the virus death toll: Lockdowns that targeted those who were most vulnerable to the Coronavirus including the elderly and those with underlying health conditions. Quarantining those who were sick, not those who were healthy. LifeSite News reports on the study: In another instructive comparison, “South Korea permitted much of its economy to remain open, choosing instead to engage in aggressive testing and isolating the infected,” yielding “13,979 cases and 298 deaths (0.0272% and 0.000579% of its population, respectively” as of July 22. By contrast, “Italy pursued a strict lockdown policy,” and by the same date “had 245,590 cases and 35,097 deaths (0.406% and 0.058% of its population, respectively).” “Maintaining a strong economy and protecting public health are not mutually exclusive,” the authors conclude. “Focusing on hot spots, protecting the elderly and most vulnerable, …

Oh, the BLM irony

When Black Lives Matter (BLM) protestors show up in Springfield, Oregon, city residents realizing their elected officials were useless decided to tell these people to leave. You will notice in the video below that most of the BLM protestors are white left-wing Millennials. And some protesters were even wondering why this protest wasn’t going as well as they did in Portland. Are we too presume that many of the protesters were not from Springfield? And one tweet asked the obvious question: And now the irony. Remember that these BLM protestors are demanding that the police be defunded. So why did they call the police for help? Language warning in video. And even Blacks are starting to notice that BLM protests have been hijacked by left wing “white” extremists. Language warning in the video below: And on a related note, one writer addressed the rioting that has taken place in the smaller communities around the US, which has basically been ignored by the main stream media. Michael Tracey decided to visit some of these smaller communities …

Twitter slammed for its hypocrisy

Several have slammed Twitter for flagging a tweet of US President Donald Trump for promoting a video of medical doctors talking about the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine as a Covid treatment, while allowing Iran’s Ayatollah to call for a Jewish genocide. The Daily Mail explains: Twitter has been slammed for its double standards for flagging posts by Donald Trump while Iran‘s Ayatollah can call for ‘genocide’ of the Israeli people. The social media giants says the dictator’s anti-Semitic tweets calling Israel a ‘cancerous growth’ pass as ‘commentary on political issues of the day’, while President Trump’s tweets ‘could inspire harm’.  During a Knesset hearing on antisemitism in social media Wednesday, human rights lawyer Arsen Ostrovsky questioned why the President’s tweets were flagged but not those of Ayatollah Khamenei, who  ‘literally called for the genocide of Israel and the Jewish people’.  READ: Twitter is slammed for flagging Donald Trump’s tweets on hydroxy because they ‘could inspire harm’ while allowing Iran’s Ayatollah to call for ‘genocide in Israel’ because it is ‘commentary’ Apparently, the President’s recommendation of a commonly used malaria drug …
