Leftist Dark Money Group Pushes Scheme to Pack Supreme Court with Liberal Justices CRC’s “Dark Money Report” Cited by Breitbart Reporter Aaron Klein

This article originally appeared on Breitbart on October 13, 2019.

Demand Justice, an organization founded by former members of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and associated with a secretive “social welfare organization” financed by billionaire activist George Soros, is pushing a scheme to pack the Supreme Court with liberal justices by adding new seats to the nation’s highest court.

This comes after Demand Justice has failed in its repeated attempts to bring about the impeachment of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

A Demand Justice petition circulated over the weekend reads:The number of justices is not established in the Constitution — in fact, we’ve changed the number of justices seven times throughout our history.

We need every Democrat to join us. Sign the petition and tell Democrats to support adding seats to the Supreme Court today.

The missive, also promoted in Demand Justice mass emails, claims “Republicans stole a seat when they put Neil Gorsuch on the bench, so Democrats need to be committed to fighting back by adding seats to the Supreme Court.”

The petition continues, “You know what’s at stake: the right to a safe and legal abortion, the right to seek asylum, the right to a workplace free of discrimination for LGBTQ+ people, and so much more.”

The activism drive seeks to galvanize support for the concept of adding seats to the Supreme Court but does not explain the process of actually getting it done.

Immediately after the confirmation of Kavanaugh last year, Breitbart News reported that already some Democrats and progressive activists began shifting tactics, pushing the scheme to “pack” or “balance” the Supreme Court by adding two new seats to be filled by liberal judges.

The Supreme Court expansion plot would be enacted if Democrats retake Congress and the presidency in 2020, according to the plan.

Political scientist David Faris advocated in a book published last year for Democrats to pack the Supreme Court with as many liberal judges as they can. Farris branded the plan the “neutron option for the Supreme Court.”

Vice’s West Coast editor Harry Cheadle summarized Faris’s arguments thusly:

[It] would involve first proposing a constitutional amendment to end lifetime tenure on the court and pushing a proposal to let each president pick two justices per term, a compromise that Faris hopes would “end the court wars.” He suspects Republicans wouldn’t go for that, however, so he’d advise the next Democratic president to just “pack” the court as FDR tried to do in 1937 before Congress rose up against him and prevented it. That would involve passing a bill to expand the size of the court and allowing the president to appoint however many justices would be needed to create a new liberal majority, with the friendly Senate signing off on any appointee. (This would be legal, Faris points out, because there’s nothing in the Constitution stipulating the size of the court, which has in fact fluctuated in the past.)

Writing at NBC.com after Kavanagh’s nomination, political science professor Scott Lemieux opined that “Democrats are now much more likely to mobilize against an even more conservative court.”

He continued:

But how might Democratic leaders respond?

A more likely scenario — especially if a Trumpified Supreme Court not only effectively overrules Roe v. Wade but then keeps striking down legislation passed by the next unified Democratic government — is expanding the size of the Supreme Court. The constitution does not fix the size of any federal appellate court, and the number of justices can be changed with simple majorities of both houses of Congress. Doing so isn’t hypothetical: After the Civil War, congressional Republicans manipulated the size of the court to ensure that it wouldn’t interfere with Reconstruction.

In July 2018, Yale Law School professors Ian Ayres and John Fabian Witt laid out the case in the Washington Post for expanding the Supreme Court, referring to the tactic as “court balancing.”

“Democrats need a Plan B for the Supreme Court. Here’s one option,” their oped was titled.

The duo advocated for Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to announce a plan aimed at “balancing” the Supreme Court if the Democrats can win a majority in Congress and take the presidency in the 2020 election.

Ayres and Witt note the Constitution does not stipulate the Supreme Court must have nine seats and they reference historical precedent for expanding the nation’s highest court:

The court originally had six seats. It expanded and contracted in the first half of the 19th century, then settled on nine. It has remained there since 1869, partly as a political norm and partly to preserve competitive equilibrium.

At crucial moments in U.S. politics, parties have acted to change the size of the Supreme Court. Often the tactic was a political power play. But sometimes it was undertaken for the good of the country, as during the Civil War, when the Republican Congress in 1863 added a seat to the court in part to protect the success of the war effort against formidable legal challenges.

The Democrats’ court-balancing proposal for 2020 should commit the party to expanding the size of the Supreme Court by appointing two new federal judges who, by statute, would be designated to sit on the court for 18 years; thereafter, the constitutionally required life tenure would be served in lower federal courts.

While pushing their proposal under the banner of “balancing,” the Yale professors do not disguise their goal of packing the court with two new liberal judges:

If Democrats took control of Congress and the presidency in 2020, the new administration would effectively have two Supreme Court slots to fill immediately. The party should commit to nominate one liberal (say, the liberal analog of Justice Neil M. Gorsuch) and to fill the other spot by renominating the liberal-centrist Garland himself.

Ayers and Witt were referring to the nomination of Merrick Garland, who was the pick of Barack Obama, then a lame duck president, to fill the slot left vacant following the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.

Secretive Arabella Advisors 

Demand Justice has played a central role in leading activism against Kavanaugh.

Demand Justice is fiscally sponsored by the Sixteen Thirty Fund, one of four nonprofits run by the secretive, massively funded Arabella Advisors strategy company that pushes the interests of wealthy leftist donors. Arabella specializes in sponsoring countless dark money pop-up organizations designed to look like grassroots activist groups, as exposed in a recent extensive report by conservative watchdog Capital Research Center.

Soros’s Open Society documents that it provided financing to Sixteen Thirty specifically earmarked for Demand Justice activism.

The Capital Research Center’s expose documented that from 2013-2017 alone, Arabella’s four nonprofits spent a combined $1.16 billion with the aim of advancing “the political policies desired by wealthy left-wing interests through hundreds of ‘front’ groups.”

“And those interests pay well: the network’s revenues grew by an incredible 392 percent over that same period,” the report related.

“Together, these groups form an interlocking network of ‘dark money’ pop-up groups and other fiscally sponsored projects, all afloat in a half-billion-dollar ocean of cash,” states the report. “The real puppeteer, though, is Arabella Advisors, which has managed to largely conceal its role in coordinating so much of the professional Left’s infrastructure under a mask of ‘philanthropy.’”

Even before President Donald Trump first announced Kavanaugh as his official nominee, Demand Justice committed to spending about $5 million to oppose any eventual Trump nominee for the Supreme Court. The organization sought to raise $10 million in its first year.

Breitbart News reported that within less than one hour of Trump’s announcement that Kavanaugh was his nominee, Demand Justice had already put up the website stopkavanaugh.com, exclaiming: “We need to demand that the Senate defeat the Brett Kavanaugh nomination.”

The news media has routinely produced articles on Demand Justice protesters, with many pieces failing to inform readers that this is not a grassroots group but an organization spawned by professional organizers and tied to deep leftist funding.

Brian Fallon, the head of Demand Justice, served as press secretary for Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. The group’s digital team is headed by Gabrielle McCaffrey, who was a digital organizer for Clinton’s campaign.

In an interview with the New York Times, Fallon would not comment on the source of the group’s financing, but the newspaper noted that he was recently a featured speaker at the conference of the Democracy Alliance, a grouping of progressive donors.

Democracy Alliance’s founding donors include billionaires Soros and Tom Steyer. Fallon’s panel at Democracy Alliance was moderated by Sarah Knight of Soros’s Open Society Foundations.

Hate is Sin and Sin Powers Evil

HATE …

&

THE TRUE PERPETRATORS

 

 Power-Evil-Hate-Fear 02

 

“You who love the Lord, hate evil! He preserves the souls of His saints; He delivers them out of the hand of the wicked.  Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.  Rejoice in the Lord, you righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name.”         psalms 97: 10 – 12. 

The situation we find ourselves in today, is certainly a vast spiderweb of issues, however, the most pressing is deduced to the hatred where the haters hate each other and it is in this evil hate that we see the extreme evil that has been perpetrated against the citizens of the United States.  Nonetheless, evil is a very powerful ally in our stand for nationalism and freedom.  Ah, yes, evil wrought by Satan himself, as he dances among the people of a Christian nation.  The United States was not the only Christian nation, however, its founding, and Constitution were rooted in Christianity and the Christian moral values, and integrity of the Protestant Christian, seeking freedom from religious persecution.  The tyranny of the Kings and Queens of western Europe, oppressing the protestants.  Therefore, there has been a war waged against God’s free people, a free nation which was plagued with evil even before we started. Slavery, inequality of women and common folks, greed, and power.  Nearly the same thing in religion, race, women’s equality, greed and power. And about the time that Andrew Jackson ran a second time for office and formed the Democratic party from the Democrat-Republican party because the Whig Party was strong enough to have the Democrat-Republican split the vote in Congress where the President was elected at that time.

But it was during that time that evil really got moving strong among the voting class or congress, evil with a capital ‘E’ has been working against our free nation ever since.  Corruption in the hearts of men (and women) has been separating and dividing, isolating the weak, devouring the mind and hearts of the people stripping them of self-esteem; turning morals and integrity into a negative trait to the delusional mind controlled by evil.

Where the rubber meets the highway, evil is the single cause of all that is wrong with us today.  there is not an issue today that cannot be equated to evil, and the ruler of the darkness of this age.  The darkness of this age began with Satan’s weaponizing the ‘Seven Deadly Sins’ and for some time now man has character has been eaten away by the Seven Deadly sins, sins that are part of our human nature, indulging in sin not only destroys our relationship with the Lord, but with each other, and in our darkness we turn on each other.

Like a pack of ravaged starving wolfs will turn on each other, weakest first.  The sins are”…

In Prov. 6:16-19, “ there are things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him:

Haughty eyes, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, A false witness who pours out lies, and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.”

The seven deadly sins commonly referred to at this point in time, are: Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy, Pride. & Lust.

 

“These are the times that try men’s souls.  The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.  What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value.  Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods, and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as freedom should not be highly rated.”  By Thomas Paine, December 23, 1776, The Crisis.

 

Today, we are not faced with the same crisis, although, we are fighting a battle for the freedom of our people.  In 1776 General Washington and his citizen army was fighting for the fledgling nation’s freedom from a tyrant monarchy, freedom and constitutional sovereign Republic.  Today, we fight, not with lead ball, at least so far; nonetheless, there is plenty of violence during the protests and various liberal groups.  However, our fight today is motivated by the same thing, the same freedom, and the security of our sovereign Republic against the socialists to make us a socialist union.

Eph. 6:12 “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” 

Evil, yes there is evil everywhere under the sun, and we tend to not pay attention to its progression; for in order to notice and pay attention it has to come near the surface from time to time, or outright exposed.  Exposure of the evil only happens when God the Holy Spirit alerts the Christian to the evil by way of our values, principles, which God instilled in us and in our nation’s founders, our Constitution.  It has always been there, right from wrong, good from evil.

Our nation didn’t need any special “civil liberties” laws to become breeding lots for racist violent hatred and division.  The Constitution and the Bible would have been just fine.  It would have gotten rid of the Jim Crow laws, held people accountable for their ideologies.  Didn’t need a separate law to rid the country of the curse of evil slavery, that was being done before Lincoln became president.  Guess the politicians should have just stayed with protecting the Constitution, the citizenry, our sovereign freedoms, all the train-wrecks along the way would have been sorted out without all the hatred and discord.

It is amazing how Americans of all colors and persuasion, come together and help one another in a time of emergency and need, yes once upon a time, the average Americans looked out for one another, but as evil progressed we lost a lot of our national integrity, our values, our Christian faith and our Christian responsibility to our fellow man.  There is a great evil power breaking lose in our nation, an evil global socialism.  Over the past four decades or more it has been swimming close to the surface being exposed from time to time.  However, with the election of President Trump, evil knew it would be exposed more so than with Obama’s foolish attempt to complete the evil conspiracy to make this, our beloved Republic of the United States, the center of the North American Socialist Union, surrendering our Constitution to the Global Socialist Union, The United Nations.

President Trump became the object of evil hatred from socialists and progressive Republicans, and he has exposed evil and corruption in every nook and cranny, or should I say that the evil has exposed itself and to an unexpected degree through the manufactured hate for President Trump, it has involved all the vile evil groups that the socialists have been enlisting for scores of decades.  I don’t have to numerate them all, but the leader has been socialism disguised as liberalism, and the Democrat Party.  Who reached out to them for votes and loyalty, what they got was exactly what they wanted as they reached out to a generation who simply wanted acceptance or notoriety, perhaps those that have brought them into the fold, have shown them something they longed for and had not received, with the war against the church, most of the young people failed to find the unconditional love and acceptance of Jesus.  That experience could have shined a totally different light on the darkness that was reaching out to them.

Could it be, that these misguided young people who are displaying such disgusting vile and radical behavior as they portray such evil hatred for our President, our nation, and now the supporters of Trump are not totally heartfelt in what they represent?  Absolutely, it shows in their uninformed and deceptive rantings; they could not be as dumb as they sound, or could they?  As far fetched as it may seem, they might be with the public educations they receive now, unless they were home-schooled, or private faith-based  schooling, here not only do they learn required curriculum, but they learn values, integrity, responsibility and consequences of bad choices.  They learn right from wrong, they learn about godly character, and patriotism  and American History the good and bad of it, civic responsibility mutual respect, curriculum and essential social skills that will give a solid foundation to their lives.  Unlike public education that has became no more than a propaganda mill and brain washing institution, oh our higher education does provide excellent academics and scientists, bankers, and candlestick makers.  But with an evil socialist soul; amoral with no guidance in life except what evil has in store.

There is a host of psychological problems that cause our young people to seek acceptance in all the wrong places.  However, what is done to such a large number of young people for five generations, hopefully will not take five generations to fix.  I know Jesus can do it in a blink of an eye, but the subject must first own their sinfulness, and see the need to be accepted by the only one who really counts.  His acceptance is unconditional, cannot be bought, or earned with good works, it is entirely free – except it will cost you your old life in exchange for a new one.

When God created mankind, he created us a spiritual being, and where He tells us about evil in heavenly place, He is not telling about the throne-room of God, but He is telling us about the invisible world about us called the supernatural.  We are not humans going through a spiritual experience, what we are, is spiritual beings going through the human experience.  And as such we all experience a war, a war between God and Satan – good and evil, sin and righteousness.

The sin of hate, divisions, lying, sexual perversions, fornication, adultery, anger, murder, all empower evil, give evil a extraordinary over God’s creation.  Through the natural desires of our human nature, and one of the strongest from infancy, is love and acceptance with the parents and siblings as being part of the family.  Christianity builds and instills that love within the family, but for five generations evil and darkness in high places, has waged an unsuspecting war on the families sending in greed, lust, putting both parents to work just to keep up.  Divorce is over half of Christian marriages while children are still young, our children are suckered into all sorts of groups where they are accepted.

Christians and patriots are now being called to action.  God will enable the willing to stand firm and return to the absolute truth of our living God, The Bible, the Word of God.  We are the caretakers of this land that God gave our founders and immigrant Christian forefathers.  Could it be, that God is getting ready to show the world once more that this is a Christian nation?  Could be, yes we have messed it up enough falling to evil.

Hollywood Boycotts Georgia

Sexual perversion and deviant behaviors have inundated our national consciousness and the defenders of death to the unborn
Hollywood to Georgia: If You Won’t Kill Them – No Movies for You!

By Rev. Michael Bresciani —— Bio and Archives–June 5, 2019
HOLLYWOOD 00.
The Un-Holy of the Un-Holy

It seems more and more each day that America is becoming a subdivision of hell. Extreme political ideologies have gripped the Democrats and a general moral collapse has moved across our citizenry like a tidal wave.
Sexual perversion and deviant behaviors have inundated our national consciousness and the defenders of death to the unborn have become so twisted that they now plan boycotts and economic sanctions against states that want to pull the plug on all abortions.

Hollywood, which has been labeled a den of thieves with the morality of a pack of jackals, has targeted the state of Georgia with threats from Netflix and Disney.
Let’s examine these communistic, perverted threats from those who claim to be lovers of children and providers of the highest family values in the nation.
If the “heartbeat bill” becomes permanent law in Georgia Hollywood has put Georgia on notice that they will discontinue filming in the ‘Peach State.’
So, if they won’t kill the unborn, who then will never get to see the beautiful state of Georgia, those lucky enough to be born, won’t get to see it as well! Here is proof, that perversion is more widespread than we have ever imagined in these United States!
And yet, there are still some Americans who think saving the life of even one precious child is a greater gain than the entire 9.5 billion dollars in revenues from Hollywood studios.
We see visions of the magic kingdom lit up and dazzling little children; standing as the very portal of childhood dreams, but behind the scenes Disney CEO Bob Iger says, he doesn’t see how it is practical for Disney to continue shooting in Georgia if the law goes into effect, adding that the law would make it “very difficult” for Disney to keep filming there.
Alas, whatever shall we do?
Perhaps it is time to realize that dead children have no dreams—in the Magic Kingdom or anywhere else.
Perhaps it is time to realize that dead children have no dreams—in the Magic Kingdom or anywhere else
Why doesn’t Disney see their own, world-class hypocrisy?
Since pro-abortion activist Alyssa Milano sent her letter of protest to Gov. Brian Kemp we see among the death monger celebs in a list of almost 50 names. These marvels of human regression include Jessica Chastain, Amy Schumer, Brie Larsen, Mark Ruffalo, Alec Baldwin, and Don Cheadle. Some will no doubt thank Milano for providing them with a list of actors whose films they don’t want to see this year.
After raising the usual ‘denial of women’s rights argument’ which is leftist subterfuge and obfuscation at its finest—along comes Netflix with this declaration made by chief content officer Ted Sarandos.
“We have many women working on productions in Georgia, whose rights, along with millions of others, will be severely restricted by this law.”
We have to wonder how anyone would dare to use words like restrictive, and severe in defense of women who kill their own children.
Perhaps we should label the Z generation for what it actually is—it is the age of perversion.
We now see why preachers, prophets, and messengers of the Bible quote the following passage today more than any other time in history. To wit:
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isa 5:20)

Fraudulent Journalism …

Why Many of Today’s News Reporters Believe It Is Their Duty to Lie to You

Posted Monday, May 20, 2019, | By Outside Contributor – Brian Cates – Epoch Times.

Reblogged by R.S. Helms …

 

Media-logos

President Donald Trump rolled out a new immigration plan in a press conference held at the White House Rose Garden on May 16 that focused on addressing the major flaws in America’s current immigration laws and border control system.
During his presentation of his new plan, Trump said the following:
“We must also restore the integrity of our broken asylum system. Our nation has a proud history of affording protection to those fleeing government persecutions. Unfortunately, legitimate asylum seekers are being displaced by those lodging frivolous claims—these are frivolous claims—to gain admission into our country. Asylum abuse also strains our public school systems, our hospitals, and local shelters, using funds that should—and that have to—go to elderly veterans, at risk youth, Americans in poverty, and those in genuine need of protection. We’re using the funds that should be going to them. And that shouldn’t happen.”

Trump finished by saying, “My plan expedites relief for legitimate asylum seekers by screening out the meritless claims. If you have a proper claim, you will quickly be admitted. If you don’t, you will promptly be returned home.”

In an act of brazen dishonesty, here’s how CNN’s Jim Acosta summarized for his audience what the President said in a Tweet:
“Trump in Rose Garden speech paints asylum seekers with broad brush accusing them of misleading immigration authorities at border: ‘These are frivolous claims.’”

That bit of sophistry quickly drew the ire of the Official Trump War Room account on Twitter, which called out Acosta’s dishonest reporting:
“How can you do this and go home at night thinking you’ve turned in an honest day’s work as a journalist?”

Acosta shot back the following:
“Hi @TrumpWarRoom.. in the transcript you provided you note that Trump describes asylum claims as “frivolous” and “meritless.” The transcript also notes Trump uses the term “asylum abuse.” Trump clearly is accusing asylum seekers of misleading immigration authorities as I said.”

Now, most people who saw what Acosta did here will wonder how he thinks he has any integrity whatsoever as a journalist after engaging in this kind of absurd behavior.
I happen to know quite well how people in the “DNC media complex”like Jim Acosta can do this kind of thing every single day and actually think of themselves as being heroic for doing so.

Let’s Go Back To 2008 For A Minute
The Associated Press’s Washington Bureau chief, Ron Fournier, introduced the concept of “accountability journalism” publicly back in 2008, which gives reporters a license to go beyond just reporting the facts of a news story in a neutral and objective manner to instead begin putting their thumbs on the scale and start pressing down—hard—to ensure a desired politicized outcome is clearly seen in the reporting. It gives them a “duty” to shape the story toward political outcomes.
Fournier basically endorsed the idea that journalists need to stop seeing themselves as neutral relaters of facts and begin shaping narratives for the public in order to hold the powerful accountable.

There is a marked difference between where the basic facts of a story go versus where the reporter would like it to go due to his or her own political tastes and views. This is precisely why the American news media for many years championed the ethical guidelines of strict neutrality and objectivity in reporting the news. A journalist who got caught molding a news story to fit his or her own biases while omitting key facts from their reporting that counted against the outcome they wanted was considered to be engaging in journalistic malpractice.
Well, in our modern age, such quaint notions as journalistic objectivity & neutrality have been utterly dispensed with. What was once considered ethical malpractice in journalism is now expected and even encouraged in many newsrooms.
You can read more here about the entire accountability journalism philosophy and how some media outlets immediately embraced it while others quickly questioned it.

This new viewpoint of how “to do” the news quickly spread like wildfire throughout the entire DNC media complex. At last, reporters were actually being encouraged by their editors to give free rein to their own political biases while engaged in “reporting the news.” Far from being desirable, political neutrality in the newsroom came to be viewed as a bad thing.

So in case, anybody is wondering why over the recent past it looks as though news reporters took any semblance of objectivity or political neutrality in their work and gleefully dispensed with it, now you know why. They were told it was their public duty to do this.

We are now 11 years removed from 2008, when many media outlets in the political news industry enthusiastically embraced the new accountability journalism guidelines. What did this result in?

Reporters and editors gave in to their worst impulses. They began to give free rein to their most naked biases. And it began showing up loudly and clearly in their “news coverage.” By the time Mitt Romney ran against Barack Obama in 2012, most U.S. news media outlets had ditched even a pretense of neutrality between the candidates.

Accountability journalism was the last thing the American news industry needed. Fournier’s Frankenstein monster has now created an entire generation of reporters and editors who see absolutely nothing wrong whatsoever with being politically partisan and biased in their “shaping narratives” and calling it “news coverage” as they relentlessly attack one political party while endlessly slobbering adoringly over the other.

‘Heroic’ Journalists Who ‘Sometimes Have To Lie To You’
Since Acosta thinks Trump is a very bad President who needs to be “held accountable” at all times, the accountability journalism philosophy gives him the green light to crudely distort Trump’s words to achieve his goal of being a “heroic” journalist who is holding a power President “accountable.”

So understand this: you can’t shame reporters like Acosta no matter how brazenly dishonest his behavior becomes. It’s impossible because they know exactly what they are doing, and they are doing it deliberately because they see it as their vital public service to set the proper narratives for the public—even if that involves lying to the public.

Acosta and his accountability journalism brethren have draped themselves in the mantle of intrepid public servants, lying, twisting, and distorting the truth in the service of the “noble” cause of stopping Trump. He literally sees himself as a hero as he lies to you. You can’t reach him, so I wouldn’t even bother.
That’s why the old legacy media cannot be rehabilitated. There are too many people inside of it who could never go back to the “old” and “outdated” way of covering the news: strictly neutral and unbiased. They would not even be psychologically capable of doing it.

Instead of being rehabilitated, it’s going to have to be replaced. CNN is on the way out, as are many of these other outlets that went all-in on accountability journalism and ditched all their objectivity and standards in the service of their own biases and agendas.

The DNC media complex’s biases and its political agenda are why they fell so hard for the Trump-Russia collusion hoax for over two years. A neutral and impartial news industry that checked it’s own biases at the door and investigated thoroughly would never have fallen for it.

Far from making the American political news industry better, accountability journalism totally ruined it. It created an atmosphere where being neutral and objective in reporting on political issues is seen as counter-productive and out-dated while all the hip and sophisticated people who are going places and changing the world were the ones who were shaping the news to fit the “right” narratives that people “needed” to hear.

What many in the mainstream news media loved the most about accountability journalism is that it allowed them to openly be what they always were: political activists disguised as reporters, chafing under the repressive strictures of the old model of neutrality and objectivity.

The good news is, the DNC media complex has almost completely rotted itself to the point of total ruin at this point, and the collapse of the industry has already begun.
Trump predicts many of these news outlets will be gone in six years.
I think he’s right.

Sorry, Democrats, But Your Stars Are Socialists
Posted Monday, April 22, 2019

By… Outside Contributor 

 

aoc-alexandria-ocasio-cortez-2-768x512

There was Bernie Sanders at a Fox News Channel town hall, not giving an inch in a forum every Democratic presidential candidate has shunned.
His reward was a cataract of good reviews and monster ratings. Sanders had a solid hour to try to reach people not favorably inclined to his worldview, at the very least demonstrating that he’s willing to show up outside his political silo.
Why hadn’t any of the other Democrats done it before? Because they lacked the verve and ideological self-confidence of Sanders, as well as the independent streak to buck the Democratic party’s attempt to hold the line against Fox. As a message candidate, Sanders is willing to take his anywhere.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi, miraculously transformed into a relatively moderate Democratic elder stateswoman, has understandably been pushing back against the notion that she leads a socialist party defined by a few radicals in the House.
On 60 Minutes, she stalwartly declared: “I do reject socialism as an economic system. If people have that view, that’s their view. That is not the view of the Democratic party.” She dismissed the left wing in her caucus as “like, five people.”
In sheer numbers this is true, but it’s the wrong way to count.
The fact is that the most compelling stars of the party are self-declared socialists with a knack for generating controversy and media attention, and with committed mass followings. Pelosi might wish it weren’t true, but poll numbers, fundraising, and follower counts don’t lie.
Sanders is reliably second — sometimes first — in national and state presidential polling. He’s outraised everyone else in the field and, with his massive small-donor base, probably can continue to do so for the duration. More than anyone else, he has defined the Democratic party’s current agenda.
It’ll be much harder to maintain that the Democratic party isn’t socialist if it nominates one as its presidential candidate, which everyone paying attention realizes is a real possibility.
If this happens, it won’t be the work of conservatives hoping to negatively brand the Democrats, but of the party’s faithful. The same goes for the prominence of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. It is often said that conservatives are “obsessed” with her; maybe so, but the same is true — and probably more so — of everyone else.
AOC has been on the cover of Time magazine, Rolling Stone (with Nancy Pelosi, as it happens), Hollywood Reporter, and Bloomberg Businessweek. Annie Leibovitz photographed her for Vogue. She’s been interviewed by 60 Minutes.
She has nearly 4 million Twitter followers and more than 3 million followers on Instagram, where she feeds the insatiable obsession of her fans — not her critics — with videos from her apartment.
She was among the top 10 House Democrats in fundraising the first quarter and had the highest percentage of small donors (her ally, Ilhan Omar, also excelled).
It’s obviously vexing to Pelosi to see a House majority built by the careful avoidance of ideological extravagance and won in marginal districts hijacked, at least in terms of public attention, by a few freshmen and a 77-year-old Vermont socialist.
They might not define the center of gravity of the party at the moment, and the radical freshmen have lost most of their tussles with Pelosi. But there is a reason that they are so famous, with such fundraising prowess. The crusading purity of Bernie Sanders has an inherent appeal, and the outrageousness of the freshmen attracts attention, which always begets more attention.
Yes, there are vast numbers of Democrats out there who aren’t on Twitter or Instagram. Maybe there are enough of them to nominate Joe Biden, or a Pete Buttigieg can win on a progressive platform clothed in a moderate demeanor.
But the party’s stars will have something to say about it. The great Zionist Theodor Herzl maintained, “It is the simple and fantastic which leads men.” As Bernie Sanders showed, it’s also willing to go on Fox News.

Wake Up People!

So How Do We Wake People Up?

 

Wake up 03

 
I Wish I knew the answer to such an important and urgent question, but I must confess I don’t. That truly rests in the hands of God. God is still in control although it may seem like He is doing nothing, He is. In the case of conservatives who slumber, or perhaps, are simply cowering in a shadowy corner with millions of “evangelical” Christians who have a great time on social media complaining about the serious sins of the world, such as Homosexuals, Abortion, sexual misconduct of politicians, celebrities, TV and movie violence, fornication and who will fire a preacher for preaching against liberalism and socialism invading our nation and Church, for fear of losing the tax exempt for their congregation. I know what I am talking about, more than half of the big tithers would stop tithing if they could not claim it on their taxes, whatever happened to “give unto Caesar which is Caesars?”
Liberal Christianity has offered a safe place for the Christian congregation and many embraced liberal theology, and of course mega-churches started growing like weeds out of control. You because many preachers stopped preaching the Word of God and not addressing the issue of sin, some even went to preaching from the New Testament only, to avoid calling sin, S-I-N. Can you see why I have written several articles on the Seven Churches of Asia Minor (Rev. 1-3), along with some other Old Testament sermons especially dealing with sin and the Law, Law that Jesus told His Disciples that He had not come to abolish nor to change – not one tittle.
While Jesus came seeking the sinner, seeking with the grace of God and the gospel of repentance forgiveness of God, from all sin and unrighteousness. And like the Apostle Paul wrote, that without the Law we would have no sin, which is true, without the Law we would not know what sin is and what sin is not. But God gave the law that His people would be obedient to Him and to manage to live with each other and all of humanity.

The Ten Commandments were given so as the first four pertain to man’s relationship with God, the creator of all. The subsequent six pertain to man’s relationship to man, that we might live in peace with each other.
Because human nature is corrupt and sinful, we all have a nature filled with all sorts of desires or appetites for evil, and God has been the one who has attempted to offer a way from eternal damnation and the final estate of hell. I cannot preach enough on the love of God, and one of the reasons is how God loves us so much that He sacrificed His Son to fulfill the Law. But nearly half of “postmodern” Christianity, falling in after various interpretations of the Bible but not the versions which all say the same thing just in familiar English, personally it depends what my application is, with all versions, sin is still sin and in the United States, we once had moral values, integrity, and Christian freedom. Now we have chaos, hatred, all sorts of corruption and evil in our elected officials and in the leaders of liberal theological churches.

But Satan, yes Satan exists just as surely as hell. Satan, his devils, and demons cannot coexist with moral values, integrity, and people who are trying to live their Christian faith – all a constant threat to his work to claim souls and not all allow God to succeed reclaiming His creation to Himself. Satan has made great gains in the world and well should he have, after all, he is the prince of the air and controls the air and municipalities. It is Satan that walks to and fro upon the earth seeking those to devour and as Satan can make our lives miserable, he can only own those who follow him and those who reject God’s grace and reject the work of our Lord Jesus. Satan will never own the soul of a saved-born again Christian.

Now let’s get back to our beloved nation. Let me not be mistaken about the fact that the United States is and always has been a Christian nation, the one thing that our citizens need to understand really should reestablish, it has taken Satan over two centuries to convince, deceive, destroy the nation and the people in it. Speaking of Satan, I read an article I found in The Vigilant Citizen concerning the Satanic Temple, apparently, it is a well organized nontheistic religious and political activist group based in Salem Massachusetts and has chapters in 13+ states. Among putting a monument in the Rotunda of the Michigan State House, and Illinois on the Capital lawn, (all legal) and created an after-school program for children called “After School Satan.” It is up and running in cities across the U.S. including Atlanta, Los Angles, Salt Lake City, Pensacola, Washington D.C., Tucson, Springfield, Seattle, and Portland. I have not found the media outlets, but I will.

My problem with this is: How the officials let the Satanic Temple do legally what they will not allow Christians to do? As a matter of fact, they (officials) have banned crosses, Christian decorations, cross memorials in cemeteries – anything, anything at all that symbolizes Christian-Judeo religion, even had some private business’ remove them usually through some sort of lawsuit from an individual activist group who target Christian businesses. Satan has a big political foothold on our nation. Mainstream Media, Social Media platforms, and the political bias Judicial System.
Now, biblical Christianity has been under attack for decades, it is known as modernity or Modernism. Started early on during the late 19th and early century. It is a philosophical movement along with the cultural trend. Trends rising from wide-scale and far-reaching transformation in Western society. Industrialization grew cities into mega cities where they developed their own culture, their own free thinking and it spread with the help of our education system with the gentle propaganda, (At first), within the school administrators, Teacher’s Unions, and liberal state legislators.

We are experiencing a full-blown liberal public-school system, (In most part), and the loss of a generation. Under the façade of liberalism, we now have a liberal-socialism sweeping the nation and continuing to divide and remove our constitutional rights and freedoms. Brainwash the majority of two generations and socialism has an open door. No moral values, integrity, and Christianity (biblical Christianity), will be of no measurable consequence, except for Christians. And until Jesus Comes, we will probably be holding worship services in caves, but we will persevere in the might of the Lord Jesus.

Comcast Xfinity 200 plus channel and costs nearly as much a month with only one Christian channel, local affiliates of the MSM perhaps six or seven tolerable broadcasts and some oldies, the rest are ad channels milking the uninformed with junk. However, there is no option other than Dish which is nearly the same. Liberalism control what we are able to watch and that at the best subliminal propaganda (like global warming/climate change on “The Weather Channel” just to mention one so you can understand how socialist subliminal propaganda messaging works, all the way across our media networks starting from program writers and how they manipulate dialogue in script to set management to advertising, the media networks are the controlling source for our information, with the exception of our public school system. And that is for the next blog, as President Trump put out his EO for Freedom of Speech on campuses of our great colleges and institutions of higher propaganda. Now infested with liberal-socialist professors and administrators.
Back to the question at hand, “How do we wake people up?” and as I said, it will take God. And those he called to be His children. Are you up to the challenge? It is my studied opinion, that every conservative patriot and citizen who cares about our nation, Christian or non-Christian, Atheist, Jew, brown, red, yellow, black and white including anyone legally here trying to become a citizen of the USA, you are all called to help. Help wake up those who slumber, those who are afraid and huddle in a shadowy corner in fear of liberal-socialist ridicule and the bullying press. Time to at least wake the slumbering and afraid to stand and boldly proclaim Jesus, our Christian nation and our Christian principals, and if it offends the corrupt and evil, so-be-it let them pack up and find a more suitable country.

You are also called as a citizen to stand against what the Democrats and establishment corrupt snakes in Congress keep trying to do, you are called to do your own research and determine to go to the poll and vote liberal, progressive, socialist globalist out of office! From dog catcher to Senator … they have no power over you except that which you yield up – so instead of telling the conservatives in Congress to grow a spine, you might grow one and go about waking people up and making sure they know what is going on. Most of those slumbering and cowering in the shadows know what is happening but have not had the encouragement to wake up.

Courage and commitment is what God needs of our citizens and his church to encourage and support people to expose the vile politicians and vote them out of office before they destroy the Constitution and the Christian church. Empower the people to stop and overcome the vile septic state we are finding we are slopping around in.

God bless you.
