Obey God rather than man (government). Thank God for men of strength and character.
Every American who cares about this country needs “to step out of [their] comfort zone and go out and defend this republic. Because being on cruise control anymore is not going to work.” -Katharine Gorka @Heritage
It’s time to fight like the 3rd monkey on the ramp into the ark.
Whatever it takes we must never give up. Fight for this country. It is worth it.
Inaccurate data points or misconceptions when it comes to testing, hospitalizations and deaths are giving the wrong impression that Florida is losing the coronavirus battle.
Much better than invading a country. Let God do it.
In Chicago, two churches have been threatened by city officials with complete destruction if they fail to obey the arbitrary edits issued by the city concerning COVID restrictions. They said the buildings would be demolished.
Although statistics prove that the virus is no more deadly than the flu, and that fatalities have dropped in massive numbers, somehow, the war against Christian Americans, small businesses and freedom is ramping up.
The lawyer for two Chicago churches has reported that city officials informed his clients that they would consider bulldozing their facilities if they do not comply with COVID-19 edicts.
Matt Staver, the founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, said on Wednesday that the city is classifying his clients as “public nuisances.” He said they were issued a letter declaring that the city “has the power and duty to cause all nuisances affecting the health of the public to be abated.” The letter threatened a “summary abatement,” which would mean the destruction of the facilities without due process.
Staver said during an appearance on the “Todd Starnes Radio Show” that he is seeking an emergency injunction and hopes to take the case to the Supreme Court. The motion for the injunction is headed to the desk of SCOTUS Justice Brett Kavanaugh right now.
Tensions between the United States and China seem to be growing by the day, prompting some in Washington to worry about a potential military conflict between our two countries within the next six months. The latest flashpoint: the vital waterways of the South China Sea.
For the first time, the US government this week declared China’s activities in the South China Sea illegal.
“On Monday for the first time we made our policy on the South China Sea crystal clear: It’s not China’s maritime empire,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told reporters Thursday.

I think this might be a little alarmist, but we know tensions have been rising between China and the United States every since this virus hit the scene. They are very unhappy with our plan to move manufacturing back to the US as well as tariffs. We shall see what happens in the future.
New York Times op-ed writer and editor Bari Weiss has quit the so-called “paper of record,” alleging in a resignation letter that she was bullied for expressing conservative viewpoints—the very reason she said she was brought on board in the first place.
“I was hired with the goal of bringing in voices that would not otherwise appear in your pages: first-time writers, centrists, conservatives, and others who would not naturally think of The Times as their home,” Weiss wrote in a letter to the newspaper’s publisher Arthur G. Sulzberger.
She said she was hired three years ago amid a bout of soul-searching at the paper after its “failure to anticipate the outcome of the 2016 election” and an apparent conclusion on the part of the publication’s leadership that the New York Times had missed the mark on what drove people in parts of America.
“The priority in Opinion was to help redress that critical shortcoming,” she wrote, calling the opportunity to work towards that goal an honor. Yet in due course, she became increasingly disillusioned, arguing that a “new McCarthyism” had taken hold at the paper, forcing journalists to conform to an ideological “orthodoxy,” with the Twitter mob serving as “its ultimate editor.”
She claimed the paper came to view “truth” not as “a process of collective discovery, but an orthodoxy already known to an enlightened few whose job is to inform everyone else.”
“I was always taught that journalists were charged with writing the first rough draft of history. Now, history itself is one more ephemeral thing molded to fit the needs of a predetermined narrative,” she wrote.
Weiss claimed she was subjected to “constant bullying by colleagues who disagree with my views,” alleging that fellow journalists at the New York Times would call her “a Nazi and a racist.”
“There are terms for all of this: unlawful discrimination, hostile work environment, and constructive discharge,” Weiss wrote, adding, “I’m no legal expert. But I know that this is wrong.”
Further, she said her experience was not unique.
“The truth is that intellectual curiosity—let alone risk-taking—is now a liability at The Times. Why edit something challenging to our readers, or write something bold only to go through the numbing process of making it ideologically kosher, when we can assure ourselves of job security (and clicks) by publishing our 4000th op-ed arguing that Donald Trump is a unique danger to the country and the world? And so self-censorship has become the norm,” she wrote.
Her letter sparked a flurry of reactions on social media.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a human rights activist and fellow at the Hoover Institute, wrote in a tweet: “The New York Times was once a great paper. Not anymore. It is now held hostage by a small group of censorship terrorists. Yesterday they hounded out James Bennet and today it is Bari Weiss who must leave. Who is next?”
The Media Research Center, a conservative media watchdog with a focus on reporting liberal media bias, wrote in a tweet: “The @nytimes has proven that their paper does not seek the truth. @bariweiss’ resignation is just the beginning of the downfall of the New York Times.”
The New York Times did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
