  • Confrontation and Repentance...Elijah pt 13

    And it came to pass, when Jezebel heard that Naboth was stoned, and was dead, that Jezebel said to Ahab, Arise, take possession of the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, which he refused to give thee for money: for Naboth is not alive, but dead. And it came to pass, when Ahab heard that Naboth was dead, that Ahab rose up to go down to the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, to take possession of it. And the word of the Lord came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying, Arise, go down to meet Ahab king of Israel, which is in...
  • COVID has cost Canadians their freedom. It must be restored [The Free North Declaration]

    National Post [Canada] ^ | Nov. 20, 2021 | Bruce Pardy
    Late last week, three colleagues and I launched the Free North Declaration , a call to defend civil liberties in this country, which lawyers and members of the public are invited to endorse. So far more than 6,000 have done so, including over 100 lawyers. The declaration outlines the ways in which legal authorities — legislatures, governments, public health officials, professional regulators, administrative bodies and public institutions — have restricted Canadians’ liberties during the COVID-19 pandemic. They have done so shrewdly, to attempt to remain inside the strict letter of the law and to avoid triggering protections in the Charter...

    Internal documents released Thursday confirm that the National School Boards Association coordinated with the White House before formally sending a letter to the Biden administration requesting federal intervention to probe and potentially prosecute parents for threatening school administrators. In an October 12 memo , obtained by the nonprofit Parents Defending Education, NSBA president Viola Garcia stated that the organization had been “actively engaged” with federal departments including the White House, Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, before sending their letter to the president. Chip Slaven, NSBA’s interim executive director, wrote in a September 29 email that the letter, which...

    The White House on Monday said businesses should move forward with President Joe Biden’s vaccine and testing requirements for private businesses, despite a federal appeals court ordering a temporary halt to the rules. “People should not wait,” White House Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters during a briefing. “They should continue to move forward and make sure they’re getting their workplace vaccinated.” The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit, considered one of the most conservative appellate courts in the country, halted the requirements Saturday pending review, writing that “the petitions give cause to believe there are grave...

    Swiss police were deployed en masse to take brutal action against a non-compliant entrepreneurial family critical of the state’s mandates. On Sunday, October 31, 2021, Swiss police stormed the famed Walliserkanne restaurant in Zermatt after the owners refused to enforce the government’s mandate requiring vaccine passports for indoor dining. Dozens of masked armed officers rushed into the famous family-owned establishment to arrest the restaurant’s owners, Patrik Aufdenblatten, his brother Ivan, and their parents, Nelly and Andreas. According to eyewitnesses, the police physically attacked the family with their “fists and shoes – and without warning.” The family did not fight back....

    School boards the country over are becoming increasingly terrified of parents demanding accountability from their local education system and its elected officials – and one Minnesota school board is tripping over its own feet trying to fight back. Video posted to social media shows Jodi Sapp, a school board member at Mankato Area Public Schools, instructing all members of the public wishing to speak at a recent school board business meeting that they must state their name and their entire home address before being allowed to comment. Before we go on, an important reminder: this is a school board meeting,...

    The Biden administration and the National School Boards Association have been in hot water since news broke that the two had colluded to use “domestic terrorism” laws to wage a war on parents concerned about school coronavirus policies and left-wing curricula. The plot thickened on Monday with the revelation that the administration rewarded the NSBA’s president with a cushy education appointment just two days after she sent the infamous letter. Purportedly to “deal with the growing number of threats of violence and acts of intimidation occurring across the nation,” the NSBA sent a letter to the Biden White House on...

    [PALESTINIAN POLICEMEN face off against demonstrators in Ramallah in June, during protests following the death of Nizar Banat, a critic of the Palestinian Authority.] Hamas sources said that the crackdown was one of the fruits of the ongoing security coordination between the PA and Israel. The Palestinian Authority is continuing its crackdown on political activists and rivals in the West Bank, notwithstanding protests by Palestinian and international human rights organizations, Palestinians said on Wednesday. The clampdown, which has targeted dozens of Palestinians over the past few weeks, is emboldening Hamas, the PA’s main rivals, and threatening to undermine security and...

    Every Columbus Day, we are treated to recycled howls from the left who insist the day be rebranded as Indigenous People’s Day, in honor of the millions of Native Americans displaced, enslaved, or killed during the centuries preceding the discovery of America. We hear terms like “colonialism,” “systemic oppression,” “cultural genocide,” and “stolen land,” thrown around. Here is a brief list of the European Indigenous Peoples who were victimized by invading armies and migrations, by colonialism, systemic oppression, and cultural genocide, but whose sufferings are rarely if ever acknowledged by the left: The Greek city-statesFrom 492 to 449 BC, Persia...

    President Joe Biden’s administration appears to be making a concerted effort to criminalize — and penalize — political dissent. The most recent step down that road came in the form of a letter from Attorney General Merrick Garland, indicating the Justice Department’s plan to coordinate with local law enforcement in order to quash protests at school board meetings.

    NY Post ^ | 10/05/2021 | David Harsanyi
    When is a protester “angry and justified” and when are they a “domestic terrorist”? It all depends on how far left they are. This week, activists stalked Sen. Krysten Simena into a women’s restroom at Arizona State University, where the senator teaches a class. Angry that she won’t vote for the Democrat’s unprecedented $3.5 trillion reconciliation mega-bill, the protesters filmed her walking into a bathroom stall. The same liberal commentators and politicians who were wringing their hands over “civility” in politics under Donald Trump suddenly had an array of justifications. President Joe Biden said “it happens to everybody . ....

    In New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio's decree blocking unvaccinated persons from entering public buildings and many commercial businesses discriminates against blacks. It turns out that 72% of blacks aged 18-44 have not been vaccinated against COVID. A New York Times investigation of the reason for this phenomenon concluded that "during these uncertain times they could not trust the government with their health." De Blasio called this reluctance to get vaccinated "foolish. Look, the majority of white New Yorkers have been smart enough to see that obedience earns them freedom. By barring the disobedient from our public spaces I'm...

    Irritated by foreign criticism of some of his policies, President Xi Jinping vowed that "The Chinese people will absolutely not allow any foreign force to bully, oppress or enslave us and anyone who attempts to do so will face broken heads and bloodshed in front of the iron Great Wall of the 1.4 billion Chinese people." The examples of "bullying" that so incensed Xi include objections to China's treatment of the Uyghurs and its culpability for the coronavirus pandemic that has resulted in nearly four million deaths around the globe. The Uyghurs are an ethnic minority whose members are being...
