Roe v Wade: Could it be Overturned this year?

(Faith & Freedom) Lawyers for Mississippi asked the Supreme Court last Thursday to overturn Roe v Wade and give state legislators the authority to outlaw all abortions.

In May the Justices agreed to hear the state’s appeal of a lower court’s invalidation of a Mississippi law that would forbid abortions after 15 weeks.

In their brief filed with the Court last week, the state’s lawmakers raised the stakes and argued that the right to abortion set in 1973 should be repealed entirely.

They said that Roe v Wade was “egregiously wrong” as a matter of constitutional law and that it has proved to be hopelessly “unworkable” in practice. They point out that, in fact, more than a dozen conservative states like Mississippi want to outlaw almost all abortions.

State Attorney General Lynn Fitch asked, “Under the Constitution, may a state prohibit elective abortions before viability?”

“Yes,” the A/G answered. “Why? Because nothing in constitutional text, structure, history, or tradition supports a right to abortion.”  (Read More)

United Nations Greenlights Big Tech Mega-Database To Censor Americans Deemed ‘Extremists’

(The Federalist) A Big Tech-led group is using its influence and power to broaden its shared censorship database to curb “extremist content” and collect video and images deemed white supremacist, according to Reuters. The expansion comes after the group “took on renewed urgency” after the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, which Democrats and tech giants continue to use as an excuse to justify suppression.

Facebook, Microsoft, Twitter, and YouTube, tech oligarchs trigger-happy to deplatform political dissidents, founded the Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism in 2017 in what they labeled “a new collective effort to prevent the spread of terrorist and violent extremist content online.” Initially, the organization claimed to focus its efforts on rounding up content from terrorist organizations such as the Islamic State and the Taliban as designated by the United Nations, but now the monopolies running GIFCT are using their oligarch power to crack down on dissidents of their elitist agenda.  (Read More)

There’s No Place Like Home — to Learn

(FRC) If someone told me 18 months ago that homeschooling American households would triple in a year, I would hardly have thought it possible. Nor would I have believed the Associated Press and the Washington Post could report positively on something as beneficial as homeschooling. As it turns out, nearly anything can change in a pandemic. By the fall of 2020, 11 percent of U.S. households were homeschooling their children, up from 5.4 percent in the spring of 2020, and 3.3 percent in the years before that, according to the Household Pulse Survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. “A lot of parents and guardians are going to keep on with home schooling, or at the very least, give it another semester or two,” said education researcher Ellen Dundas.

“Even more remarkable are where those gains came from,” reported the Washington Post. “Even though home schooling has often been considered the domain of religious White families, the most significant increases were seen among Black, Latino and Asian households.” The Post reported that while white families homeschooling doubled from 4 to 8 percent between 2019 and May 2021, black families homeschooling increased from about one percent to eight percent, and Hispanic families homeschooling increased from two percent to nine percent. Asian families homeschooling have increased from one percent in 2016 to five percent in 2021.  (Read More)

The Attack has begun What will you do?

(Gem State Patriot) Not long ago I wrote about a new radio program on KIDO radio on Saturday mornings featuring two of my favorite RINOs, Tom “Common Core” Luna and Victor Miller. Unfortunately, I was right about this show it is a sham to promote any and all RINOs who will be running for office in next year’s primaries in our state. Yes, ladies and gentleman, this program was the prelude to the attack on any and all entities that might present a problem for any of these lobbyists sucking politicians who have had way too many years in our legislature.

The recent attack by Jim Jones and Fred Martin in articles presented by our favorite liberal rag the Idaho Statesman denigrating the Idaho Freedom Foundation were first rate garbage suitable for any dump you might want to drop them in. It seems only proper that we give them a little of their own medicine.  (Read More)

A Seven-Day Journey Through The Revolt Against The American People

(The Federalist) Last Friday, a six-year-old girl was shot down in a drive-by in Washington, D.C. while she walked with her parents and her younger sister by a park that hadn’t been taken care of — hadn’t been trimmed, hadn’t even been cleaned up or properly patrolled — by the city in a very long time. Authorities had surrendered the park to addicts and criminals, but the morning after the shooting you can bet the cleaning crews were there. It wasn’t worth salvaging the park for normal citizens who lived there, but it was for the news cameras.

This past Thursday was the six-month anniversary of the Biden administration, and by extension, the six-month anniversary of the demise of the Keystone Pipeline. The Austin American-Statesman fact-checked complaints from now-unemployed workers, claiming the jobs weren’t actually lost — they were just temporarily lost. Forever.  (Read More)

David Jeremiah: Cancel Culture is unbiblical … a sign of End Times?

(OneNewsNow) During a sermon he gave last Sunday to his congregation at Shadow Mountain Community Church in El Cajon, Calif., Jeremiah pointed out that cancel culture’s goal of punishing and ostracizing people in society is in direct conflict with the commands of Jesus Christ to love God and others.

“Cancel culture is laser-focused on judgment and accusation and punishment, and the goal of those who cancel others is to broadcast their sins from pillar to post, and never allow them to be removed or forgotten,” Jeremiah explained, according to Christian Headlines. “Christ’s goal, on the other hand, is love, mercy and grace.

The Southern California pastor addressed cancel culture’s detrimental effects on society in his sermon series focusing on current events, which are discussed in his upcoming book, Where Do We Go from Here? How Tomorrow’s Prophesies Foreshadow Today’s Problems – slated for October.  (Read More)

CRT Shape-shifting in Education

(FRC) Every once in a while, the Biden administration likes to pretend that it’s listening to reason. Don’t buy it. That’s the message from conservatives, who are trying to keep parents from falling for the White House’s line that it’s backing away from critical race theory in the classroom. That’s the impression Education Secretary Miguel Cardona was going for when he said that the department made an “error” promoting a radical group’s CRT theories. Some people cheered, thinking the White House had finally seen the light. But if it sounds too good to be true, experts warn, that’s because it is.

Cardona put up a convincing façade. In a statement to Fox News, his office said that it was a mistake to include a handbook from the controversial Abolitionist Teaching Network in the DOE’s resources for public schools. “The Department does not endorse the recommendations of this group, nor do they reflect our policy positions. It was an error in a lengthy document to include this citation,” a spokesperson said. (Read More)

Mississippi petitions U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade

(Standing For Freedom Center) With the balance of the Supreme Court shifted fully right for the first time in decades, Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch has filed a brief requesting that the Court overturn Roe v. Wade.

Amid an appeal to the Supreme Court regarding a Mississippi law banning abortion after 15 weeks, Fitch is calling into question the very foundations of abortion rights in America.

“On a sound understanding of the Constitution,” she wrote in her brief, “the answer to the question presented in this case is clear and the path to that answer is straight. Under the Constitution, may a State prohibit elective abortions before viability? Yes. Why? Because nothing in constitutional text, structure, history, or tradition supports a right to abortion. A prohibition on elective abortions is therefore constitutional if it satisfies the rational basis review that applies to all laws.”

Fitch added, “The only workable approach to accommodating the competing interests here is to return the matter to ‘legislators, not judges.’  (Read More)

Missouri Teachers Plotted With CRT Advocate to Hide Radical Teaching From Parents

(PJ Media) In the Francis Howell School District about 35 miles west of St. Louis, Missouri, teachers met in September 2020 to determine the curriculum the students would follow for the coming year. Advising them was equity consultant LaGarrett J. King, an associate professor of social studies education at the University of Missouri.

In addition to discussing the curriculum, King tried to impress on the teachers the importance of teaching history the “right way.”

“This is not a safe space,” but rather a ‘racialized space,’” King said. “In many ways, a safe space is a space where white people tell us how not racist they are. And this is not that space.”  (Read More)

‘I’m from the Government, and I’m Here to Vaccinate’

(FRC) Most people were shocked when the president wanted to go door-to-door with his vaccine campaign — but that’s only the half of it. According to a Pentagon spokesman, the White House is also planning to go barracks to barracks — requiring the men and women of our voluntary military to involuntarily surrender their freedom and take an unproven shot some of them don’t want.

Frankly, Obama Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told CNN, “I think the president ought to issue an order requiring everybody in the military to get a COVID-19 shot — period. That’s an issue involving our national security,” he argued. “The last … thing you need is to have those in the military that are our warriors unable to respond to a mission because they’ve gotten COVID-19. There’s no excuse for that.” Interesting, considering that the same military leadership has been cheerleading the troops’ gender reassignment surgery, which renders patients completely undeployable for months.  (Read More)

Christ of the Ozarks statue vandalized by activists

(Christian Post) A political activist art group hung a 45-foot banner reading “God Bless Abortions” on the 65-foot tall Christ of the Ozarks statue that “stands as a symbol of hope” in northwest Arkansas on Thursday night.

Members of the activist art collective called Indecline disguised themselves as construction workers to sneak onto the property and used pulleys and climbing gear to hang the banner on the Christ of the Ozarks statue in Eureka Springs that was erected in 1966.

Kent Butler, director of operations at The Great Passion Play, the Christian organization that manages the Christ of the Ozarks statue, told The Christian Post that he hopes the political message Indecline tried to portray will instead turn people’s attention to Jesus.

“It was all about [Indecline] getting attention to expand their platform, but our pivot really is to our mission,” Butler told CP on Saturday. “This whole place exists to lift up Jesus. And at times what was intended for evil, in Genesis 50, it says ‘what was intended for evil God used for good.’  (Read More)

Gay Men’s Choir: ‘We’re coming for your children’

(Standing For Freedom Center) Critics of the LGBT movement have long warned that conceding ground on issues such as gay marriage would not stem the lobby’s push for more, and a song by a gay choir from San Francisco shows they are correct.

“You think we’re sinful, you fight against our right, you say we all lead lives you can’t respect. But you’re just frightened, you think that we’ll corrupt your kids if our agenda goes unchecked. Funny, just this once, you’re correct,” the song says, and then continues,

“We’ll convert your children, happens bit by bit,

quietly and subtlety and you will barely notice it.

You can keep them from disco, warn about San Francisco,

make ’em wear pleated pants, we don’t care.  (Read More)

So Much For The P.T.A.–Parents Push Back

(Faith & Freedom) Once the “Parent Teacher Association” (PTA) was a helpful, constructive association in almost every public school district across the land.

The “association” between parents and teachers is frayed, if not gone in today’s great American pushback.

I’ve written about and talked about on the radio, the National Education Association’s declared attack on parents over the subject of racism in America.

In their annual conference last weekend, the NEA told the parents of the 50.7 million kids in public schools that they “would” teach Critical Race Theory to their children, and the parents “will not” stop them.

One black theologian is wondering if there is a demonic dimension to this battle.

The growing pushback by parents is underway, and all Christians and conservatives should be informed as to what is actually happening.  (Read More)

Loudoun County Parents Discover Chilling CRT Teacher Training Material

(RedState) Below you will find training materials used by the Equity Collaborative for Loudoun County Public Schools teacher training in May/June 2020.

Some highlights from the training:

— “The culturally competent professional does not profess color blindness.”

— “Culturally competent professionals accept responsibility for their own racism, sexism, heterosexism, etc., and attempt to deal with them in a non-defensive, guilt free manner. They have begun the process of defining a new non-oppressive and non-explotative attitude. In terms of racism, for example, addressing one’s Whiteness (e.g., white privilege) is crucial for effective teaching.”

— “Teachers have a special role to teach academics (and inculcate morals). ‘The teacher is the second mother.’ Parents’ role is to socialize children (and respect teachers’ authority).”  (Read More)

Anti-Christian Hysteria Has Grown Into Church-Burning Terror, And People Might Be Next

(The Federalist) St. Ann’s Catholic Church was a small church built to serve a small town, but that humble building was a mighty testament to the people who built and nourished it.

The people of Chuchuwayha Indian Reserve Number Two traveled more than 40 miles, each way, by horse and wagon, to pick up the lumber they used to build their small church, by hand, outside the town of Hedley, British Columbia. That church stood for more than a century, providing spiritual nourishment to its small congregation at the far-flung edge of the world.

But now, St. Ann’s is gone. On June 26, it burned until nothing was left but a smoldering pile of ash. It wasn’t lightning or a tragic accident. It was arson — and it wasn’t an isolated incident.

All over Canada, churches are going up in flames.  (Read More)

America, If You Want to Know What’s Coming Next, Look to Canada and Be Forewarned

(Townhall) In some respects, Canada has been a step ahead of America in terms of moral and cultural decline. That means that what happens in Canada today – and I mean what happens in the most negative sense – could well be coming to America tomorrow.

Of course, in other respects, America is far ahead of Canada in terms of serious moral issues. Just consider the difference in gun violence between our nations. Or ask yourself who is the world leader in exporting and providing porn, Canada or America?

Yet, when it comes to government overreach or attacks on fundamental liberties or hostility towards the Church, Canada’s descent has been more frightening.

We do well to pay attention to what is taking place to our north.  (Read More)

Frederick Douglass Versus the 1619 Project

(The Epoch Times) How amusing it is to see the advocates of critical race theory (CRT) and the 1619 Project vehemently deny that their philosophy is even being taught in elementary and secondary schools. Most recently, teachers’ union president Randi Weingarten insisted that CRT is merely a subject of discussion in law schools and the legal community, not in the public school system.

Hogwash! Parents wouldn’t be mobilizing against CRT if they didn’t witness its divisive propaganda being dumped on their children. Ironically, we have the COVID lockdowns to thank for this. Ordinarily, parents aren’t exposed to what their children are being taught in school. But with online instruction, they can pop into their kid’s room and go, “They’re teaching him WHAT?”

If CRT and its ideological cousin the 1619 Project really aren’t being taught in schools, why would the teachers unions and the left worry about them being banned by state legislators?  (Read More)

Planned Parenthood sex ed ‘sexualizes’ children, ‘leading to abortion’: former volunteer says

(Christian Post) A former Planned Parenthood sex education volunteer says a program that Iowa recently banned from receiving taxpayer funding pushed materials that encouraged students to become sexually active, “leading them to abortion.”

Monica Cline, a former volunteer educator with Planned Parenthood, was recently interviewed by the Catholic news outlet EWTN for a “Pro-Life Weekly” segment.

The interview came in response to a recent decision by the Iowa Supreme Court to uphold the right of the state to ban Planned Parenthood from participating in two federally-funded grant programs.

Cline expressed support for the decision, saying that Planned Parenthood’s educational materials are aimed at “pushing sexuality and sexualizing children.”  (Read More)

Here’s How Critical Race Theory Activists Try to Pull The Wool Over America’s Eyes

(PJ Media) Parents are speaking out against schools teaching about “white privilege” and “institutional racism,” and some have even gotten arrested at school board meetings. A New Jersey English teacher resigned because an ideology of skin color “power hierarchies” had dominated her school. An Oregon school superintendent suggested that if teachers don’t want to teach “anti-racism,” they should seek employment elsewhere. The largest teachers union in America expressly committed itself to fighting back against “anti-CRT rhetoric.”

Yet Ibram X. Kendi (born Ibram Henry Rogers), the founder of the much-vaunted “anti-racism” movement, took to The Atlantic with the Orwellian claim that “There Is No Debate Over Critical Race Theory.”  (Read More)

NEA Declares War On Parents

(Faith & Freedom) The National Education Association has moved to openly promoting the teaching of Critical Race Theory (CRT) and to allocate funds to research the “organizations attacking educators.”

Those referred to as “attacking” are conservative organizations like the Heritage Foundation and others. It also refers to parents who disagree with their children being indoctrinated with CRT teachings that say America is systemically racist and corrupt and so are the people who oppose CRT’s Marxist ideology and the widely discredited New York Times “1619 Project.”

The nation’s largest teacher’s union has declared war on parents and parental authority.

Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says this strikes at the very foundations of our country.

I would also add that it also strikes at the very foundation of the cornerstone of our culture: The family.  (Read More)

Dear Christian: Patriotism is a Biblical Virtue

(Standing For Freedom Center) It’s okay to be a patriot and a Christian. Patriotism in and of itself is not incompatible with Christianity nor does it redefine Christianity, just like being a football fan doesn’t compromise your salvation – unless you’re an Eagles fan, of course.

It’s incredible how logically inept culture can be. Wokism will suggest — and in some cases demand — that patriotism in America is wrong, especially for Christians, because wokism takes their flaw-of-the-day and generalizes it with the American majority. Thus, if you’re a Christian you’re not allowed to have pride in America because then you’re suddenly showing support for the variable flaw that wokists feel like being offended about.

Don’t buy into it. Wokists don’t care about America. They also don’t care about the issues that they say make America a bad country. Wokism is a poisonous doctrine of baseless facts that manifest into ungratefulness, selfishness, and contempt for America — a nation that has blood-secured freedom and opportunity for each of its citizens.   (Read More)

Facebook Is Now Identifying And Reeducating You And Your ‘Extremist’ Conservative Friends

(The Federalist) Facebook users started receiving notifications Thursday in a new campaign to “provide resources and support to people on Facebook who may have engaged with or were exposed to extremist content or may know someone who is at risk.”

The Big Tech giant is sending out two notifications to certain users. One asks, “Are you concerned that someone you know is becoming an extremist?” The Facebook message then goes on to suggest that “you can help” by joining their support group. “Hear stories and get help from people who have escaped violent extremist groups.”

The other notification reads, “You may have been exposed to harmful extremist content recently.” The message continues, “Violent groups try to manipulate your anger and disappointment. You can take action now to protect yourself and others.” Finally, Facebook prompts users to “Get support from experts.”  (Read More)

Gender and sexuality of our youth: Natural or deliberate indoctrination?

(Christian Post) As the battle rages on in our society about gender identity and the treatment of same-sex relationships under the law, the church is not immune from addressing these issues head-on – even at the dinner table. If you are like me, these questions are a constant source of debate with teenage children who are bombarded with social media and classroom discussions on the topic that challenge our Biblical views on sexuality, marriage, and gender.

Alarming statistics from a recent Gallup poll show that the onslaught of LGBTQ messaging directed at our youth is working. The report states, “younger generations are far more likely to consider themselves to be something other than heterosexual. This includes about one in six adult members of Generation Z (those aged 18 to 23 in 2020)…and more than half of those claim they are bisexual.”  The fact that the rise is most pronounced in young people and the majority is not experiencing same-sex attraction, indicates that the deliberate indoctrination of our children not to accept traditional gender roles is increasingly successful.   (Read More)

Church Holds Worship Services Outside Planned Parenthood to Save Babies From Abortion

(LifeNews) Planned Parenthood is trying to permanently stop a church from holding worship services outside its abortion facility in Spokane, Washington.

On Friday, Planned Parenthood of Greater Washington and North Idaho asked a Spokane County Superior Court judge for a permanent injunction against The Church at Planned Parenthood, KREM News 2 reports.

The abortion chain claims the pro-life ministry has been violating a temporary injunction that a judge issued in 2020 and “interfering with patients’ access to healthcare,” according to the report.

However, leaders of The Church at Planned Parenthood say they are not protesters. Their purpose is to worship God and pray for repentance “of our blood guiltiness in this abortion holocaust.” Prior to the judge’s order, hundreds of people would gather to worship outside the abortion facility in Spokane, according to the local news.  (Read More)

California’s Latest Gender Identity Law Is Producing Predictable Consequences

(Townhall) A California state law passed last year and implemented on January 1, 2021 allows men to be housed at prisons with women. All they have to do is identify as a woman and they’re in. No questions or judgement allowed.

Sane people knew the law would have negative effects on women in California’s prisons by putting them at risk for assault and abuse. Now, six months into the practice the results have been horrific. Worse, they were completely predictable.

But prisons aren’t the only places women are being forced to allow men into their personal and intimate spaces. Shelters for battered women are also under attack and transgender activists continue to demand men be allowed to sleep in the same quarters as abused women. Democrats in Washington D.C. want to cement these policies on a federal level through the Equality Act.  (Read More)
