Mr. Marks, by mandate of the District of Columbia Precrime Division, I’m placing you under arrest for the future murder of Sarah Marks and Donald Dubin that was to take place today, April 22 at 0800 hours and four minutes.” (Minority Report)

Pre-Crime is unconstitutional, yet Republican Congressman Dan Crenshaw supports pre-crime legislation to take guns from people before any crime is committed. Clearly, he is betraying his oath of office as well as the voters who put him in that office.

“What we’re talking about is the ability to confiscate weapons when there’s clear evidence that violence is about to be committed.” [emphasis mine] Dan Crenshaw, R-TX

The reality of Red Flag Laws is that they nullify individual rights, and innocent people lose their 2nd Amendment rights and even their lives.

Yet Crenshaw says that Red Flag Laws aren’t “that controversial” becausethere can be “good ones and there can be bad ones.” Crenshaw doesn’t seem to understand that it’s never good to expand the power of the federal government at the expense of individual liberty. Human error is always possible; therefore, always error on the side of liberty.

John Anderton: Why don’t you cut the cute act, Danny boy, and tell me what it is you’re looking for?

Danny Witwer: Flaws.

John Anderton: There hasn’t been a murder in six years. There’s nothing wrong with this system it is…

Danny Witwer: Perfect I agree, but there’s a flaw. It’s human. (Minority Report, 2002)

Back in the day when leftists masqueraded as liberals, they’d often say, “I do not agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it.” Although the aphorism’s meaning was lost on them, it reverberated within their “echo chambers” and gave them the pretense of magnanimity, which they seemed to relish at the time.

Today the leftists have bolted from the closet and have abandoned all pretense of embracing the protection of free speech. They’ve taken off the mask of liberalism, and discarded it along with their “cherished” aphorism. Now they are leading the effort to squelch freedom of speech, demanding that ideas and opinions they deem insensitive and hateful be censored and silenced on social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Being hardcore leftists themselves, the CEOs of these social media giants have been more than happy to comply with their wishes.

First Stormfront, a white nationalist, white supremacist, neo-Nazi group lost its web address of more than two decades beginning the “crackdown against hate sites.” Whimpers chimed over the Internet, but not many on the right gave serious attention to what was happening.

Next the social media giants collectively set their sights on Alex Jones, which garnered more attention and brought their assault on free speech to the forefront. Although they saw Jones as an easy target, he was the proverbial “canary in the coal mine” (albeit more Kuku than canary) warning Americans that the social media giants had joined forces and were out to purge the Internet from politically “inappropriate” ideas and “offensive” speech.

But the giants weren’t concerned because they viewed Jones as the tin-foil hat poster boy for offensive, insensitive, and hateful speech. They surmised that the mainstream conservative and evangelical opinion makers would show little sympathy for Jones and wouldn’t make much noise about the violation of his free speech rights. And they guessed right because few of the mainstream talkers and pundits on the right voiced any genuine concern for what was happening to Jones.

As they say, the camel doesn’t stop once its nose is under the tent, so the social media giants went after more undesirable voices that they considered low-hanging fruit. They banned Dennis Prager, Franklin Graham, some lesser known Christian ministries for posting “unsuitable” content on their platforms. And now it’s become a daily occurrenceas more and more evangelicals, conservatives, classic liberals, and patriots are rounded up and shadow banned by Twitter, censored by Facebook, and terminated by YouTube for expressing ideas and opinions that the giants claim violate their community standards regarding bullying and hate speech.

America needs a kid who’s good with a sling shot because the lauded movers and shakers and heralded opinion makers with the loudest voices and biggest megaphones on the right are either intimidated, afraid, or controlled and won’t stand up and fight the giants. They know what’s been going on, yet they constantly promote the social media giants’ platforms on their shows encouraging people to join the platforms and to like and follow them when they go there. They’re appeasers feeding the giants hoping to be the last ones censored and banned.

Conservatives, classic liberals, evangelicals, and patriots on social media find themselves on the horns of a dilemma. If they continue to express contrary thoughts, ideas, and opinions, they will be purged. If they self-censor and stop posting and tweeting their “offensive and hateful” thoughts, ideas, and opinions and go along to get along, some social media friend, social justice warrior, or LGBTQ and sometimes Y-stapo member will uncover something offensive they tweeted or posted years before they got their mind right and they’ll be given a strike or a time out or some other childish reminder that failure to communicate means time in the box.

Yet something must be done to halt the attack on free speech and to keep the giants from purging all their political and religious enemies from their platforms under the pretense of promoting inappropriate ideas and expressing offensive speech. Although the solution may prove to be easier said than done, it will solve the problem, and it doesn’t require government intervention.

If the majority of account-holding conservatives, classic liberals, evangelicals, and patriots on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube would en masse join the giants’ competitors such as Gab, USA Life, and Brighteon.com and ask their friends on social media to join them there, it’s likely Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube would backpedal their censorship and revise their speech code guidelines and community standards.

If the U.S. Constitution, the First Amendment’s freedom of speech and conscience clause, and the Founders’ belief in God-given rights and individual liberty mean anything to conservatives, classic liberals, evangelicals, and patriots in this country, this proposed solution will be easier done than said. What’ll happen next only God knows. “I didn’t come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here to tell you how it’s going to begin. … Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you.”

UN Set to Launch ‘New Universal Agenda’ for Global Governance

By Jerry A. Kane

image13_1064

The United Nations is set to launch its “new universal agenda” for humanity and the planet September 25, 2015. The UN’s “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” document is a blueprint to “transform our world for the better by 2030,” and yet most major media outlets in the United States refuse to report on the far reaching implications of this document.

“This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model, for the first time in human history. This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for … 150 years, since the industrial revolution.”—Christiana Figueres, Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change

Unlike the UN Agenda 21 action plan, which mainly focused on the environment, the 2030 Agenda action plan will strictly regulate nearly every human activity in every area of life. The preamble to the document states:

“This Agenda is a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. It also seeks to strengthen universal peace in larger freedom. We recognise that eradicating poverty in all its forms and dimensions, including extreme poverty, is the greatest global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development. All countries and all stakeholders, acting in collaborative partnership, will implement this plan. We are resolved to free the human race from the tyranny of poverty and want and to heal and secure our planet. We are determined to take the bold and transformative steps which are urgently needed to shift the world onto a sustainable and resilient path. As we embark on this collective journey, we pledge that no one will be left behind. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets … demonstrate the scale and ambition of this new universal Agenda. … They seek to realize the human rights of all and to achieve gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls. They are integrated and indivisible and balance the three dimensions of sustainable development: the economic, social and environmental.”

On September 25, 2015, Pope Francis will travel to New York City to help launch the new universal agenda. He will address the UN General Assembly and urge the people of the world to support the United Nations’ blueprint for world governance.

It’s like everybody in this party’s shining like Illuminati

It’s like everybody in this party’s shining like Illuminati

Here are the adopted Sustainable Development Goals as set forth in the 2030 Agenda document:

Goal 1. End poverty in all its forms everywhere

Goal 2. End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture

Goal 3. Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages

Goal 4. Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all

Goal 5. Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls

Goal 6. Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all

Goal 7. Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all

Goal 8. Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all

Goal 9. Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation

Goal 10. Reduce inequality within and among countries

Goal 11. Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable

Goal 12. Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns

Goal 13. Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts*

Goal 14. Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development

Goal 15. Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss

Goal 16. Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels

Goal 17. Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development

Nearly every nation in the world is expected to sign on to the 2030 Agenda. But what happens to the nations that won’t sign on or go along with the plan? Or better yet, what happens to freedom of conscience, individual liberty, and free enterprise in those nations that do go along?

Where have the apostles gone?

Joining hands with wicked ones

Revelation has come to pass

New world order will hold the mass

Bolivian President Honors Pope with Hammer and Sickle Crucifix

By Jerry A. Kane

During a formal ceremony, leftist Bolivian president Evo Morales presented Pope Francis with a communist crucifix depicting Jesus nailed to a hammer and sickle.

The communist crucifix is a replica, originally designed by Jesuit activist Luis Espinal, who was assassinated in 1980 by suspected Bolivian paramilitaries during the months that preceded a military coup.

The night before, Francis stopped at an airport to pray at the site where Espinal’s body was found.

“Dear sisters and brothers. I stopped here to greet you and above all to remember. To remember a brother, our brother, a victim of interests who did not want him to fight for the freedom of Bolivia,” Francis said.

Following a brief examination of the wooden crucifix, Francis handed the gift to one of Morales’ aides.

Although spokesmen for the Bolivian government maintained that there was no political motive behind the gift, conservative Catholics claimed that Francis was being manipulated for ideological reasons.

Morales also presented Francis with a medal depicting the hammer and sickle in memory of Espinal’s death. Espinal was a Jesuit priest, journalist, and communist agitator.

“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast …” Revelation 13:11,12 (KJV)

For more on the story, see Vatican bewildered by Bolivia’s ‘communist crucifix’ gift to Pope Francis.

UPDATE

The video clip below shows Morales giving Francis several gifts in a formal ceremony. Before Morales gave Francis the communist hammer and sickle crucifix, he presented him with a pectoral cross with the same hammer and sickle image.

According to Francis, Espinal, the Marxist Jesuit who designed the communist crucifix from which the replica was taken, was a friend and brother who “preached the Gospel and this gospel bothered, and that’s why they eliminated him.”

What most Catholics and self-identified Christians don’t know is that the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church has been deeply invested in progressive collectivism for generations. While abhorring atheistic dialectical materialism, the hierarchy has embraced certain elements of Marxist theory including social justice and economic redistribution of wealth and has sided with authoritarian collectivism over personal freedom and individual liberty.

“Papal encyclicals that touch upon socioeconomic issues routinely attack ‘capitalism’ and ‘individualism’ as inhumane and unjust forces, thus implying that less capitalism and individualism would make society more humane and just. See Paul VI’s Populorum Progressio (1967), for example, which rejects the right to private property and demands that ‘public authorities’ (i.e. governments) solve the social injustice of men holding “surplus goods” for their own private use while others lack necessities.”—Daren Jonescu

Catholic visionaries and commentators such as the late Father Malachi Martin and Kathleen Keating have predicted the rise of an Anti-Pope who would transform the Church’s fundamental teachings and lead the faithful to embrace the Antichrist.

Some prophetic scholars say the book of Revelation predicts the rise of a future Antichrist along with the False Prophet who will implement the religion of the Antichrist and cause the masses to worship him as God.

“Full in the face of the world,

And see the collapse of this pygmy giant

Whose fall will not stifle my ardour.

Then will I wander godlike and victorious

Through the ruins of the world

And, giving my words an active force,

I will feel equal to the Creator.”—Karl Marx

There is a complete breakdown of civilization in the black community in America’s inner cities, and the black community is most responsible for it.

Rather than do something about it, black Americans blame racism, and point to white evangelical Christians, social conservatives, and white Republicans as the culprits. They don’t blame leftist Jews, progressives, or white Democrats for racism.

The underlying problem is ideology, not race. Black Americans have taken sides in the ideological struggle and prefer a people’s republic to a constitutional one.

Scott Lively, A One-Eyed Man in the Land of the Blind

By Jerry A. Kane

Last week the Rev. Scott Lively, an independent candidate for Governor of Massachusetts, joined seven other declared candidates in the state’s first gubernatorial forum on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues at the Boston Public Library.

Rather than join in with the others in the hallelujah “pro-gay” chorus, Lively addressed homosexual behaviors from a medical, sociological, and biblical viewpoint. Lively’s common sense language left politicians and audience members startled like they’d been slapped in the face with some cheap aftershave.

At times Lively was interrupted by grunts and guffaws from disgruntled audience members and rude and snide comments from the candidates, yet their mockery, scorn, and hostility did not deter him. He presented a clinic on how to fight back against hostility and overwhelming odds. He kept his composure and conveyed his message.

When it was over, Lively stood alone as the only independent thinker among the group of me-too candidates parroting gaystapo talking points. As one reporter put it, “Most of the candidates for governor had the same message … Lively was the forum’s outlier. He lived up to his last name …”

For too long now, conservative politicians and pro-family leaders have been reluctant to tell the truth about homosexuality. When they are confronted with political correctness, they back peddle and compromise rather than stand tall and fight on principles.

All too often they collapse under the pressure and run away instead of standing up to the name-calling and engaging the battle. It’s obvious they’re controlled by fear, but what’s sad is that they seem to be the only ones who don’t know it.

If nothing else, Lively has shown that repeating truths forcefully and fearlessly is the only way to defeat a homosexual movement built on lies, deceit, and disinformation.

In last week’s Massachusetts candidate forum, the Rev. Scott Lively proved he’s more than just some run-of-the-mill independent candidate for governor; he’s the proverbial one-eyed man in the land of the blind. Whether or not he’s made king is another matter altogether.

Ronald Reagan spent most of his career challenging reigning Republicans and fighting their orthodoxy. He wasn’t a part of the Nixonian/GOP establishment.

Reagan’s eleventh commandment never meant Republicans should not criticize fellow Republicans over ideology or philosophy. When Republicans don’t stand for principles, Democrats celebrate.
