Powderhorn Park: The moral dilemma of not calling police

The little community of Powderhorn Park in Minneapolis decided to become a haven for the homeless, drug dealers and their addicts. A group convinced residents to allow them to occupy a local park and pledge not call the police if some of these new residents broke the law by stealing, selling drugs and committing vandalism.

Virginia Gov. wants people to snitch on Christians

According to Liberty Counsel, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam is encouraging citizens to snitch on people who are breaking his lockdown orders. The state even provided an online snitch form that you can fill out to snitch on your neighbours, friends or anyone you hold a grudge against. It could even be family member if you like (Matthew 10:21-22). And this even includes churches, as the handy dandy online snitch form has a dropdown box where one of the choices you can select is religious services. According to Liberty, in Northam’s phase two opening churches are limited to “no more than 50 percent of the lowest occupancy load on the certificate of occupancy of the room or facility,” and the people must be six feet apart. Violators are threatened with one year in jail and a $2,500 fine. Meanwhile, the Democrat Governor allows demonstrators protesting the death of George Floyd to flaunt all his rules. Liberty Counsel, a nonprofit legal organization, is representing Lighthouse Fellowship Church in a legal battle with Governor Northam. In its news …

Are we starting to see a pattern: black vs white?

A recent Pew survey of the ethnicity of demonstrators, some of who turned into rioters, discovered that 46% are white compared to only 17% black. And that pattern seems to be holding true for those screaming to have the police dismantled. Filmmaker Ariel Horowitz recently took to the streets of New York to find out what people thought of dismantling police. He talked to white people in the East Village and blacks in Harlem: The Blaze reports on his East Village visit: Horowitz began by visiting the East Village in New York City.  All of the white demonstrators who spoke to Horowitz said that police should be abolished.  One man insisted that police officers were flat-out “monsters.” According to The Blaze, Horowitz’s visit to Harlem took a slightly different tone: One man said that protesters demanding the abolition of police were “full of crap.”… “I have family members that are police,” she said. “I respect the police. I would not want to see a lawless society.”  One man — who was wearing a Black Lives …

Why is Instagram censoring Sean Feucht’s worship videos?

According to CBN, Sean Feucht, a worship leader associated with Bethel Music, recently shared several social media posts that Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are now censoring worship and praise videos. Apparently, Feucht was going to places where there has been rioting and then posting videos of praise and worship from these locations. And while these social media corporations allowed posts of actual rioting, somehow praise and worship songs was considered insensitive or harmful and removed. Feucht tweeted: While @Facebook @instagram @Twitter promote the content of violence, rioting & destruction, they are actively CENSORING worship, prayer, peaceful protest & anything going against their fear-mongering narrative. My feed and many others is proof.#ChangeTheNarrative — Sean Feucht (@seanfeucht) June 23, 2020 Feucht reports that Instagram justified the removal of his praise and worship videos because they were classified as “harmful” or containing “false information”: This is what we’ve come to in America! Instagram is now classifying my WORSHIP videos as “harmful or false information” Religious Liberty? Freedom of Speech? Big Tech censorship? pic.twitter.com/I7s6HUfKH4 — Sean Feucht (@seanfeucht) June …

It started with pulling down statues in Venezuela

Venezuela used to be one of the most prosperous nations in South America and then left-wing Marxists gained control under Hugo Chávez sending the country into tyranny and a poverty spiral. So how did it all start there? Well, according to Venezuelan Elizabeth Roglianai, it started with pulling down statues. CBN writes: “Why do I even worry about some silly statues coming down. Because the last time I didn’t care about this I was a teenager,” Roglianai said. “I have already lived through this thing when I was living in Venezuela. The statues came down…Chavez didn’t want all that history displayed and then he changed the street names, then came the school curriculum. Some movies couldn’t be shown on TV channels and so on and so forth.” The goal of communist extremists is disconnect a country from its past, and create a new identity. In an interview with Fox News, Roglianai explained: “It’s an attempt to change the identity of the country. That’s my opinion. And, that’s what they did to us. Of course, it …

COVID: Non lockdown states had a 75% lower death rate

According to research by a Kansas-based nonprofit group, The Sentinel, published in the Wall Street Journal (WSJ), the per-capita death rates from the coronavirus was 75% lower in states that did not initiate a lockdown compared to states that did. If, the lockdowns were effective, you would expect it to be the exact opposite. The Wall Street Journal notes: “GOP governors have faced enormous media pressure to lock down their states in solidarity with Democrats, and some now are getting browbeaten to shut down again amid coronavirus flare-ups. So it’s worth pointing out that states that didn’t lock down this spring kept the virus under control and experienced fewer deaths than most [of the states] that did. Of course, not only did these states have fewer deaths, their economy is also in much better shape. WSJ writes: “A new analysis by The Sentinel, a Kansas nonprofit, compares the 42 states that shut down most of their economies with the eight that did not. The latter group includes mostly rural states with some small metropolitan areas: …

PEW: Only 17% of protestors are black, 46% are white

According to a survey by Pew Research only 17% of the people protesting in the US are black. The biggest majority are white at 46% and the second largest group was Hispanics at 22%. Asians are fourth at 8%. Most of the demonstrators are peaceful. During a protest in Madison, WI, it was noted that about 150 people broke off from a peaceful demonstration numbering about 1,000 and started rioting, setting fires and looting and vandalizing businesses. So who is the source of the violence? Breitbart writes: “Protests in Seattle, Washington, Portland, Oregon; Washington, D.C.; and New York City, New York have been dominated by Antifa members and Black Lives Matter activists.” The Pew survey also showed that most of the protestors are young adults and 80% said they are Democrats or support Democrats.

California Church shut down because it doesn’t financially fit in?

The Pacific Justice Institute (PJI) has announced it will be appealing the court case of New Harvest Christian Fellowship (NHCF) located in Salinas, California after a Judge ordered it shut down because it didn’t fit in. NHCF has been operating a church on the city’s main street for over 25 years and in 2018, the church bought a larger building because its growing congregation no longer fit in its previously rented facility. The city took the Church to court demanding it be shut down because it did not fit in to the vibe that the city council was trying to build for the city’s main street. It wants a pedestrian-friendly environment along its main street full of shops and entertainment facilities. The city would only allow the church to continue if it held services on the second floor of the building, instead of the main floor. In a court case over this dispute, the Judge ruled in the city’s favour stating that it did not fit the vibe the city was trying to create and …

Does Seattle mayor plan to turn all of Seattle into CHAZ?

Seattle Democrat Mayor Jenny Durkan has announced the city will be dismantling the CHAZ/CHOP Paradise Lost experiment after the recent shootings in the seven block zone taken over by left wing extremists. They had allegedly turned the area into a no-police zone. READ: Seattle will move to dismantle ‘CHOP’ zone after shootings, mayor says So while she is pledging to end CHAZ, it appears the mayor has bigger plans for Seattle. Mayor Durkan also announced that there will be major funding cuts to the Seattle police force in an effort to counter the economic fallout from the city imposed lockdown due to the Coronavirus. This will include a $20 million cut for the remainder of the year. But there are more police cuts coming. Fox News reports: Demonstrators occupying the Capitol Hill Organized Protest, or the CHOP, have called for the police department’s budget to be slashed by 50 percent. But the mayor’s proposal accounts for just a 5 percent decrease in the police budget for the rest of the year, according to the Times. …

Under 50s more likely to die from accidents than COVID

According to Cambridge University statistician Sir David Spiegelhalter, a healthy person in Britain under the age of 50 is more likely to die from an accident (this includes car accidents) than from COVID. Spiegelhalter added that of the near 43,000 deaths in Britain that have been blamed on COVID, only 959 were 50 years of age or under. And of that group 80% of those had underlying health conditions which means they would have undoubtedly survived if they had been healthy. This has left many wondering if COVID was the cause of death or the underlying health condition. Which of course begs the obvious questions, why was the whole country quarantined? Why were the healthy quarantined? He said: Under 40s were more like to die in car accident than COVID Under 25s more likely to die of pneumonia or the flu than COVID READ: Healthy under-50s are more likely to die from a car accident or an injury than Covid-19, leading statistician says Epidemiologists in Canada came to a similar conclusion. They said based on …

Why a black man risked his life to rescue a white cop?

Even though he had previous run-ins with the police, Daylan McLee, 31, a black man, risked his life to save a white police officer trapped inside a burning cop car in Uniontown, PA. McLee was at home when he heard a large crash outside his home. Two cars had collided at a nearby intersection. One of them was a police car operated by Jay Hanley who had now had a broken leg and was trapped inside his burning car that could potentially explode. McLee took the initiative and with the help of another police officer ripped open the car door and pulled Hanley to safety. A police spokesman said without McLee’s help there was real possibility Hanley would have died. The Blaze explains why McLee did it: “I know this man is my brother through Christ, and I couldn’t leave him behind,” McLee said. “There were people outside screaming. We felt it in the house. It was like a jolt.”… “There is value in every human life,” he said. “We are all children of God, …

BLM activist calls for pulling down statues of Jesus

Now I am not necessarily a big fan of Jesus statues, but Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King has recently said it’s OK for protestors to pull down statues of Jesus, not just any statues, but those that are specifically white. He allegedly wants any stained-glass windows portraying a white Jesus destroyed as well. Though, I am not a big fan of Jesus statues, I don’t think it’s fine to destroy another group’s property. And if it’s solely about colour, why did rioters destroy businesses owned by black people? The Blaze writes: “Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down. They are a form of white supremacy. Always have been,” King tweeted on Monday. “In the Bible, when the family of Jesus wanted to hide, and blend in, guess where they went? EGYPT! Not Denmark. Tear them down,” he added. “Yes. All murals and stained glass windows of white Jesus, and his European mother, and their white friends should also come down,” he explained in a …

Last words: Never give up your faith in Jesus

You have probably never heard of Kande Mudu, 27, but the Apostle John mentioned Kande in his vision of the end times found in the book of Revelation. Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW) recently reported on what happened to Kande, a Christian living in Khunti district in Jharkhand state located in the North East corner of India. CSW is an organization that monitors religious freedom in 20 countries. According to CSW, Kande and his wife Bindu became Christians in 2016, and they along with their two daughter were the only Christians in the small village where they lived. On June 7, 2020, a mob of armed Hindu extremists started pounding on the door of the family home around 8 PM. They eventually broke down the door and dragged Kinde out of the house. They then started beating him with their weapons and Kinde was killed when an assailant slit his throat. Kinde’s body was discovered later that night on a deserted road. This was not the first time the family had been assaulted because of their …

Angry Experts and a Rejected Prophecy

Recently, someone published a religious “prophecy” ad in a newspaper in Nashville Tennessee. The paper has apologized and called the ad “horrific and is utterly indefensible in all circumstances.” At least one Christian has stated that the ad’s “claim is not supported in the Bible.” I respect those voices and I accept their verdict. You can read the description: READ: Tennessee newspaper investigating ‘horrific’ ad predicting terrorist attack in Nashville The danger for us all, is that anyone can be rejected with emotion and without evidence, if the experts say we are wrong. The people who wrote the “prophecy” ad can now claim religious persecution. It would be better if we could see at least part of their ad, to understand why it is wrong. Criticism must be transparent and correct.

Video: Then he asked if unborn black babies matter?

A man approached medical staff at an unnamed hospital holding a Black Lives Matter protest. First he asked, “Do all black lives matter, or just some black lives?” They responded, “All black lives.” Then he asked, “Black lives killed by black men matter.” They replied with a bit of encouragement, “Yes.” Then he asked “The black lives killed in the abortion clinics matter, right?” No response.

Has COVID changed from a tiger to a wild cat?

I have previously reported that there are indications the COVID virus is weakening suggesting that it may start dying out on its own. It was first noticed in Italy, but the news is starting to hit the mainstream media. The British newspaper, The Telegraph, recently interviewed Dr. Matteo Bassetti, of San Martino hospital’s infection disease clinic on what was happening.

CHAZ: Paradise lost?

So, how are things going inside CHAZ or CHOP as some now like to call it? This is a seven block, police-free autonomous zone set up in Seattle, Washington that the radical left has claimed as an independent territory. A few days ago, Andy Ngo spent five days inside the zone. In an article for the New York Post, Ngo tells his harrowing five-day visit. Of course, Ngo had to go undercover: During five undercover days and nights in the zone, I witnessed a continuing experiment in anarchy, chaos and brute-force criminality. In order to avoid being exposed as a journalist — several reporters have been barred or expelled — I slept and showered outside the zone. (Those inside have no showers but they do have portable bathrooms.) I took meals, and most of my water breaks, elsewhere because I was reluctant to remove my mask and risk being recognized. Every day I entered the zone twice through its semi-porous borders — once in the early afternoon, and again after sundown, staying until the wee …

Police officer saves baby of BLM protestor

Some anti-police protestors are pushing the message that all cops are bad. They aren’t. A young woman was attending a Black Lives Matter protest at a park in Palmdale, California, when her 11-month-old child lost consciousness. Panicked she and a friend ran over to a nearby Deputy, Cameron Kinsey, asking for help. Faith Wire explains what happened next: According to NBC4, the women ran to the deputy who was in a parking lot nearby. Deputy Cameron Kinsey then began attempting to dislodge whatever was in the baby’s mouth, before finally issuing several blows to the baby’s back, which ultimately succeeded and saved the baby’s life. Turns out the child had swallowed a coin, which became stuck in its airway. Kinsey was asked about the protest and according to TheBlaze, his response was succinct: “None of that other stuff matters, just the baby.” You can watch a video of what happened caught by a nearby security camera: READ: Deputy Saves BLM Protester’s Dying Child in dramatic video

UN deletes tweet criticizing criticism of ANTIFA

When the UN issued a tweet defending ANTIFA from accusations that it is a Marxist terrorist organization: UN #HumanRights experts express profound concern over a recent statement by the US Attorney-General describing #Antifa and other anti-fascist activists as domestic terrorists, saying it undermines the rights to freedom of expression and of peaceful assembly in the country. pic.twitter.com/2Pz2dMyq8k — UN Geneva (@UNGeneva) June 19, 2020 Several responded.

Is Black Lives Matter a Marxist organization?

According to reports, Black Lives Matter (BLM) was founded in 2013 by Alicia Garza, Opal Tometi, and Patrisse Cullors after the death of Trayvon Martin and acquittal of the man who shot him, George Zimmerman. A recent video has surfaced from 2015 suggesting that the organization, with 40 offices around the world, may have deeper political motivations than just a concern for Black people. The Blaze explains: Black Lives Matter doesn’t specifically note that they are Marxists on its website, but one of the organization’s creators admitted that they subscribe to Karl Marx’s ideology. In a newly resurfaced video from 2015, Black Lives Matter Global Network co-founder Patrisse Cullors reveals that she and her fellow BLM creators are “trained Marxists.” “Myself and Alicia in particular are trained organizers. We are trained Marxists,” Cullors said in the 2015 interview. “We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories.” Of course, the bigger question is who trained them: BLM founder Patrisse Cullors, reassuring an old communist that she understands that the goal is to destroy freedom: “we’re trained …

Why is BLM not protesting Planned Parenthood?

I have spoken about CHAZ or CHOP as some people call it, which is the seven block zone taken over by radicals on the east side of Seattle. Recently a video has shown up of a Black woman, Edmee Chavannes, going to CHAZ and asking why they are not protesting Planned Parenthood. She told the group: “Why don’t I see my brothers and my sisters outside Planned Parenthood?” “We need you all there. Number one killer of the black population is Planned Parenthood. I don’t see Black Lives Matter in front of a Planned Parenthood.” You can see her speaking in the video below: Inside CHAZ Territory with @TPUSA, This Preacher exposes the HYPOCRISY of Black Lives Matter ⠀⠀If Black Lives Mattered to them, why aren’t they outside of a Planned Parenthood? pic.twitter.com/RG8nT8hfPvSUBSCRIBE — Benny (@bennyjohnson) June 17, 2020 Apparently, several in the crowd were not appreciative of having anyone expose their hypocrisy.

Canada’s Prime Minister misplaces addresses

People are asking embarrassing questions about Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s vaunted infrastructure program, such as where did the money go: According to Blacklock’s Reporter of the 53,000 companies, organizations and/or individuals who received federal tax dollars under the program, Canada’s Parliamentary Budget Office reported that nearly 20,000 did not have addresses or details describing the project. They all had bank accounts though. Addressing the missing information, Parliamentary Budget Officer Yves Giroux said: “It’s hard to be convinced. I have faith they do exist, but I don’t have proof that they exist.” According to reports, the total spending on the infrastructure program so far amounts to about $187 billion. If everything is proportional roughly $70 billion is MIA. READ: Audit of $187 billion worth of Liberal infrastructure spending finds 20,000 missing projects

Black theologian calls social justice ‘cultural Marxism’

Voddie Baucham currently serves as the Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia. He is causing a stir, because he is coming out against the narrative of social justice comparing it to cultural Marxism. He says there is no such thing as social justice, there is only Biblical justice. Dr. Baucham was recently had an interviewed by Glenn Beck, from The Blaze that writes: He [Dr. Baucham] argues to Glenn that today’s social justice, anti-racism movements are steeped in Marxist critical theory and aim to redistribute justice to certain societal groups…with no consideration for individual man. Dr Baucham refers to social justice and cultural Marxism in its various forms as “poisonous” ideologies: Former pastor @VoddieBaucham REFUSES to stay silent against the “poisonous” ideologies of social justice and Marxism: “I am not willing to lay down my Bible and have anyone force me to agree with certain things.” pic.twitter.com/QJ9Iv2sG46 — Glenn Beck (@glennbeck) June 18, 2020 Faithwire reports on the interview: “And what worries me about this, is that there are real problems.

China’s Communist regime goes rogue?

According to reports, China’s communist regime has allegedly launched a massive cyberattack against Australia. The attacks have targeted government agencies, businesses and critical infrastructure. The Daily Mail reports: China was today blamed for a massive cyber-attack on Australia amid an escalating feud between the two nations.  . Australian PM Scott Morrison said the country was under attack from a ‘sophisticated state-based actor’ targeting companies, hospitals, schools and government officials. . Mr Morrison did not name the country, but government sources say there is a ‘high degree of confidence that China is behind the attacks’. … … Security chiefs say the hackers are using the so-called ‘spear-phishing’ method to steal sensitive login details by sending scam emails, and carrying out regular ‘reconnaissance’ to find weak points in Australia’s defences. So why has the country’s despot, President Xi Jinping, allegedly gone rogue? Many suspect Jinping is upset that Australia is calling for an investigation into China’s role in covering up the Coronavirus. Some believe the Communist regime is trying to bully Australia into bending the knee. But …

Can the Tabernacle of David heal the racial divide?

In his article on Charisma News entitled, Is Rebuilding David’s Tabernacle the Solution to Our Racial Division?, Michael Thornton believes that the rebuilding of the Tabernacle of David may be the key to healing the racial issues in the US. He writes: King David also lived in similar times thousands of years ago. The nation of Israel was culturally and politically divided. Communities were fragmented. There was a major disconnect between the law enforcement and local communities. The whole nation was on edge. The atmosphere was filled with anger, hostility and civil unrest because of King Saul’s prior leadership. In the midst of this crisis, King David brings a solution. He recovers the ark of the covenant (presence) and places it in a tent in the middle of his city. He gathers and employs over 4,000 musical prophets and initiates a 24/7 worship reformation that lasts 40 years. Imagine an unending worship and prayer meeting erupting from a team of over 4,000 prophetic musicians! He goes on to the say that the 24/7 worship and …

Are you easily offended?

In an interview with ABC‘s George Stephanopoulis, Ben Carson, who serves as secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development in the US government, made the amazing statement that Americans need to toughen up (he actually said grow up) and quit being offended over everything. And this is all the more incredible considering that Ben Carson is black. Some would argue that he has multiple reasons to be offended in today’s American society. But Carson refuses to go down that road telling Stephanopoulis: “We’ve reached a point in our society where we dissect everything and try to ascribe some nefarious notion to it. We really need to move away from that. We need to move away from being offended by everything, of going through history and looking at everything, of renaming everything. . “I mean, think about the fact that some of our universities, some of our prestigious universities, have a relationship with the slave trade. Should we go and rename those universities? . “It really gets to a point of being ridiculous after …

Made Up News; We are being baited.

Some protesters organized a rally, in the name of Black Lives Matter, in the town of Innisfail Alberta. That’s a town of about seven thousand, surrounded by farms, and popular with retired people. There is no notable history of racism. When the local people heard about activists driving in from big cities far away, some of them got angry. I believe they didn’t want to be pulled under the bus; their town is not like the big cities in the news. When the rally happened, a few people were angry and other people were nice, in a small town way. An activist made a speech in a vacant lot near a supermarket, and then everyone went home. The ugly brawl never happened. We create news when we answer an angry person, with our own anger. That is the outcome some people were hoping for in Innisfail, but I think those nice small town people won this round. A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. The tongue of the wise …
