Catholic Bureaucracy Bows to Biden

By: Cliff Kincaid

With “Catholic” Joe Biden declaring war on the unborn, heterosexuality, and traditional marriage, the Catholic Church bureaucracy in Washington, D.C. has surrendered to the forces of Cultural Marxism. Defying logic, common sense, and Catholic teachings, the Archbishop of Washington, Wilton Gregory, has decided that Biden is a Catholic in good standing and deserves Holy Communion.

Perhaps the prospect of dipping into the $1.9 trillion pandemic “relief bill” is a factor.

On February 7, Gregory gave a completely uninspiring recorded address to the Catholic congregations of the nation’s capital that failed to address in any way the federal assault on the teachings of the church on human life issues. Instead, as part of a special appeal for funds to subsidize the bureaucracy (in addition to the $1.4 billion in Covid-19 relief money already provided to the Catholic Church), he repeated a few Bible verses about seeking and finding truth, while talking in general terms about separating light from darkness.

The New York Times has declared that Joe Biden “is perhaps the most religiously observant commander in chief in half a century” because he “regularly attends Mass.”

Biden, who actually presided over a same-sex “wedding,” is making a mockery of the teachings of the church and leading the United States into further darkness. But Gregory, an enemy of former President Trump, knows this.

Biden’s reversal of the Trump ban on transgenders serving in the military is only the latest example.

Since military recruiters have already been going to gay “pride” events, we anticipate this will include not only paying for sex-change operations but active recruitment of transgenders, of the Corporal Klinger variety. The MASH television spectacle of Corporal Klinger wearing women’s dresses to get out of the military may now give way to the Pentagon actually permitting transgendered male soldiers to openly wear women’s military uniforms.

What’s more, as James S. Corum argues in American Thinker, much-needed medical funds will be diverted from military families to confused transgenders desiring to look like members of the opposite sex.

Perhaps the Pentagon will announce the formation of the Barney Frank Brigade, named after the former Congressman who once got mired in scandal after ordering a prostitute through a “hot bottom” ad in a gay paper.

Our once-feared military will become a global laughingstock.

It will only be a matter of time before conservatives and Christians start leaving the military in droves.

Beyond the corruption of the military, the Transgender Law Center is demanding that Biden implement a wide-ranging Trans Agenda for Liberation, including a focus on black trans women.

The frequently incoherent Biden cited his faith as a Catholic in supporting transgender rights, quoting Christ as saying, “What you’re doing to the least of my children, you’re doing to me.”

However, a document issued by the Vatican department overseeing Catholic education features a biblical quote in bold letters, “MALE AND FEMALE HE CREATED THEM,” while even left-of-center Pope Francis said in 2014, “Gender ideology is demonic.”

As Biden prepares to push the so-called “Equality Act” to benefit homosexuals, Catholics and non-Catholics alike know that the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 6-9 said, “Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality…”

Officially, the Catholic Church recognizes homosexuality as a disorder, but there are estimates that 25-50 percent of priests are homosexuals. What’s more, as numerous lawsuits and investigations have determined, the Catholic Church has failed to purge sexual predators.

Wilton Gregory’s predecessor, Cardinal Donald Wuerl, resigned from his leadership of the archdiocese in 2018 after he was accused of covering up sexual abuse. His predecessor as archbishop of Washington was the disgraced former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, the highest-ranking U.S. Catholic leader ever to be removed for sexually abusing a minor.

In an article, “How Joe Biden Will Open The Floodgates To Transgendering Public Schools,” Joy Pullmann noted that Biden “plans to quickly use executive power to push transgenderism in schools, farther than President Obama did.”

All of this is being done with the apparent official acquiescence of Catholic officials such as Wilton Gregory, even though Catholic schools will also be targeted.

Traditional Catholics such as Michael Hichborn of the Lepanto Institute are outraged and he came on America’s Survival TV discussing the “moral evils” being advanced by the Biden Administration on issues like abortion and transgenderism.

Brian Burch of the group Catholic Vote says the “devout” Joe Biden has been celebrating his election “victory” with more child-killing through pro-abortion executive orders. “Joe Biden is an enemy of life, period,” he says. “While he once held to some semblance of coherency on the life issue, he has since fully sold his soul to the Democratic Party’s War on the Unborn.”

In another shocking development, Dr. “Rachel” Levine, a man who wears lipstick and a dress and has been Pennsylvania Secretary of Health, has been nominated by Biden as Assistant Secretary of Health, a Senate-confirmed post. In addition to the controversy over his/her sexual identity, Levine sent many old people to their deaths from Covid in Pennsylvania nursing homes while saving his/her own mother.

We can expect the top officials of the Catholic Church to fall on their faces in subservience to Biden/Harris. But will Republicans challenge this bizarre nomination?

Meanwhile, censorship of traditional Catholics is underway.

A Catholic World Report (CWR) journalist, Matt Hadro, was suspended by Twitter for posting this “hateful” comment: “Biden plans to nominate Dr. Rachel Levine, a biological man identifying as a transgender woman who has served as Pennsylvania’s health secretary since 2017, to be HHS Assistant Secretary for Health. Levine is also a supporter of the contraceptive mandate.”

Catholic League president Bill Donohue commented, “If Twitter can silence such innocuous speech as this, the free speech rights of all Catholic media outlets and websites are in jeopardy.”

It gets worse. Professor and author Paul Kengor points out that ads for his book on the evils of communism, The Devil and Karl Marx, and Carrie Gress’s book, The Anti-Mary Exposed: Rescuing the Culture from Toxic Femininity, have been blocked by Facebook. In addition, he says Facebook ads have been blocked for a new TAN Books title on motherhood,  Motherhood Redeemed: How Radical Feminism Betrayed Motherly Love, and a children’s book on the Stations of the Cross.

Of course, those like Wilton Gregory who toe the liberal line will be encouraged to speak out for Joe Biden and be praised for doing so.

Fox News Cancels Lou Dobbs To Hide Mike Lindell Election Fraud Evidence

By Daniel John Sobieski

Remember Fight Club? The number one rule about Fight Club is that you couldn’t talk about fight club. As the flame of liberty is slowly extinguished in the emerging Biden gulag, it is the number one rule about 2030 election fraud and a possible stolen presidential election. If you do, you will be “canceled” or sued, or both. The winner has been certified, we are told, so just shut up, they argue. Forget that old dead white supremacist Voltaire. We disagree with what you say and we will not defend to the death your right to say it.

Yes, a presidential winner has been certified but, dare I argue, a presidential winner has yet to be determined. In our Republic, it is not enough to certify a winner. It is more important to agree upon a winner. Someone once said that history is a lie agreed upon. Well, elections can be too.

People who have spent the last four years trying to overturn the results of the 2016 election complain that the likes of MyPillow icon Mike Lindell and noted attorney Sidney Powell have been leading forces who are determined to overturn the 2020 presidential election. After four years of pursuing hoaxes from Russian collusion to Ukrainian quid pro quo without evidence, they now claim that there is no evidence of 2020 election fraud. And forget the First Amendment. Anyone who suggests election fraud is a danger to the Republic must be silenced. President Trump is facing a second and unconstitutional impeachment for telling his supporters to use their constitutional right to peaceably assemble to petition for a redress of their grievances and “peacefully and patriotically” let Congress hear their voices.

Lou Dobbs had been announcing that he was going to air the Lindell findings of how unconstitutional state law changes, coupled with actions by corrupt election officials, and the use of voting machines open to the Internet and ripe for hacking and manipulation, combined to alter the election results, Friday night but he never got the chance. As the Los Angeles Times was the first to break the news of Dobbs’firing, reported:

Fox News Media has canceled “Lou Dobbs Tonight,” the program hosted by television’s staunchest supporter of Donald Trump and of his assertions of voter fraud in the 2020 election, The Times has learned.

Dobbs’ program, which airs twice nightly at 5 and 7 p.m. Eastern on the Fox Business Network, will have its final airing Friday, according to a Fox News representative who confirmed the cancellation. Starting next week, the program will be called “Fox Business Tonight,” with rotating substitute hosts Jackie DeAngelis and David Asman, who filled in for Dobbs on Friday….

The cancellation comes a day after voting software company Smartmatic filed a $2.7-billion defamation suit against Fox News and three of its hosts — Dobbs, Maria Bartiromo and Jeanine Pirro. The company claims the hosts perpetuated lies and disinformation about Smartmatic’s role in the election, damaging its business and reputation….

Dobbs also gave free rein to Trump lawyers Rudolph Giuliani and Sidney Powell to push conspiracy theories about the election that were either rejected or never presented in court. Giuliani and Powell also are defendants in the Smartmatic defamation suit.

On his Nov. 30 show, Dobbs told Powell he believed Trump needed to take “drastic action, dramatic action to make certain that the integrity of this election is understood or lack of it, the crimes that have been committed against him and the American people. And if the Justice Department doesn’t want to do it, if the FBI cannot do it, then we have to find other resources within the federal government.”

The deep state has pushed the view that it is a “Big Lie” that the election was manipulated and stolen when the real big lie is that either no evidence has ever been presented or that it has been rejected by the courts. Courts have refused to hear cases using the excuses that the lawsuit was too early, or too late, or that the plaintiff lacked standing. In fact, there has not been a single evidentiary hearing in any court in the United States where the evidence of 2020 election fraud and manipulation has been examined and then rejected or disproven.

Silenced and complicit news outlets like Newsmax and Fox News and pundits like Tucker Carlson, who accused Sidney Powell of lying, bleat that they haven’t seen any evidence of fraud. Evidence is supposed to be presented snd examined in court, not in newsrooms or at decision desks. So far, a corrupt and cowardly judiciary has shirked its responsibility.

If Tucker had been paying attention to the press conference, both Giuliani and Powell were not presenting their case. They were, for the benefit of those who, like Tucker Carlson, apparently get their legal knowledge from watching Judge Judy, establishing probable cause, and making the equivalent of their opening statements. The actual evidence will be presented in an actual court before an actual judge and through a process called discovery. Sidney Powell does not have any of the servers used by Dominion, some located in foreign countries. Nor does she have copies of the software in her office. Forensic analysis of the servers and software has yet to be done. As someone who has spent four decades in information systems, I can attest that this is not an easy process that can be explained or done on the set of Fox News. Tucker Carlson is not a forensic computer expert, nor is he a judge or jury. I would trust their legal expertise over his.

This election was arguably stolen, even though the media will deny the evidence of electronic tampering, ignore the testimony by people sworn under oath before Congress and legislative committees, ignore that multiple states simultaneously stopped counting in the middle of the night followed by sudden Biden vote surges, ignore the election judges barred for required oversight of vote counting, ignore the signed affidavits of witnesses to widespread and systemic fraud, ignore the complicity of RINO Republicans like Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, and statistical anomalies that boggle the mind and are mathematically impossible unless engineered by human hands.

Dominion Voting Systems, credibly accused by attorney Sidney Powell and others of providing voting machines that can be hacked and reprogrammed on a dime to provide whatever election results desired, is suing everybody who wants to discuss the mountains of evidence accumulated that the 2020 election was manipulated and stolen. It has joined the left in intimidation and suppression of conservatives and forbidding any discussion or debate. It is as if the emperor was suing the individual who said he had no clothes.

The liberal tyrants want revenge and have a vast agenda of oppression and suppression in store for we cult members who need to be deprogrammed, reeducated, or made to pay for our thought crimes and support of Trump. Are you now or have you ever been a conservative? Have you ever bought a pillow from Mike Lindell?

Lou Dobbs is the latest casualty in the organized silencing and suppression of dissent. He dared to give the likes of Lindell, Powell, and Giuliani a hearing.  Liberals, RINOs, and timid conservatives want to punish and “cancel” anyone who supported Donald Trump, the latest big name examples being Lou Dobbs and Mike Lindell who, as well as being an early and ardent Trump supporter, has committed the sin of being a successful capitalist who believes in making a profit and whose life story is a rejection of dependency and victimhood and a stunning reminder that if you want to get back on your feet you first have to get off your butt. Brigitte Gabriel of ACTforAmerica details the liberal McCarthyism directed at the “MyPillow guy”:

Radical Leftists are waging an all-out assault on Bed Bath & Beyond and Kohl’s to “cancel” the wildly popular “My Pillow” line of products.

My Pillow was founded by Mike Lindell, a faithful Christian, and pro-Trump businessman. It has been a pillar of society and earned international headlines when it shifted all of its production to masks and other personal protective equipment (PPE) during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mike Lindell deserves to be praised for his leadership. But instead, Radical Leftists want him canceled. That’s why it’s so important for all of us to urge Bed Bath & Beyond and Kohl’s to RESIST the Radical Left and STAND with My Pillow!

Lindell points the finger for the liberal witch hunt targeting him at a group of Internet vigilantes under the name Sleeping Giants who want to “cancel” him and others and remove them from the public square for exercising their free speech rights in support of President Donald  J. Trump. As the Washington Examiner reports:

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell said that two large retailers have pulled his products from shelves as he continues to question the results of the presidential election.

“I just got off the phone with Bed Bath and Beyond,” Lindell said during an interview with Right Side Broadcasting on Monday night. “They’re dropping MyPillow.”

“I just got off the phone not five minutes ago,” Lindell, a staunch supporter of President Trump, continued. “Kohl’s. All these different places.”…

The Minnesota businessman pointed the finger at Sleeping Giants, a social media activist organization that has been pushing for companies to stop selling his product, and called the group “the most evil people on the planet.”

Sleeping Giants responded to the criticism on Twitter and confirmed that Bed Bath and Beyond had indeed pulled the pillow from shelves.

“CONFIRMED: @BedBathBeyond has dropped MyPillow in light of the CEO, Mike Lindell, playing a part in the insurrection last week,” Sleeping Giants tweeted….

Earlier in the day, it was reported that Lindell had received a letter from Dominion Voting Systems, the election technology company at the center of several election conspiracy theories, informing him that the company would take legal action if he continued to spread his belief that the election was stolen from Trump via their products.

“You have positioned yourself as a prominent leader of the ongoing misinformation campaign,” the letter said. “Litigation regarding these issues is imminent.”

Lindell was defiant in his response, telling the Washington Examiner that he is “going to keep fighting.”

“I’m going to keep going until the last little foot is trying to stomp me out,” he said.

A Michigan judge recently unsealed and released a damning report revealing the details of an audit on electronic voting machines used in Michigan’s Antrim County… machines which produced off-results and concluded these systems were ‘designed” to create “systemic fraud”:

A Michigan judge has released the bombshell report on the audit of Dominion Voting Systems, revealing that the machines and their software were “designed” to “create systemic fraud.”The report covers the forensic audit of Dominion’s machines in Michigan’s Antrim County — which received national attention after it was discovered that 6,000 votes for President Donald Trump were “flipped” to Democrat Joe Biden due to an “error.”   

The data firm that conducted the forensic audit of Dominion Voting Systems determined that the machines and software in Michigan showed that they were designed to create fraud and influence election results, the report reveals.

“We conclude that the Dominion Voting System is intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results,” Russell Ramsland Jr., co-founder of Allied Security Operations Group, said in a preliminary report.

“The system intentionally generates an enormously high number of ballot errors.”

“The electronic ballots are then transferred for adjudication,” the report continues.”The intentional errors lead to bulk adjudication of ballots with no oversight, no transparency, and no audit trail.

This leads to voter or election fraud,” Ramsland Jr. explains.”Based on our study, we conclude that The Dominion Voting System should not be used in Michigan,” he added.”We further conclude that the results of Antrim County should not have been certified.”

If FoxNews, Newsmax, or Tucker Carlson want evidence of anti-Trump foreign actors being able to meddle in our elections, he should get in touch with Secretary of State Ruth R. Hughes of Texas and read her report: “REPORT OF REVIEW OF DOMINION VOTING SYSTEMS”, detailing why Texas rejected the use of their voting machines and software:

The nation’s three largest voting machine manufacturing vendors — Election Systems & Software (ES&S), Dominion Voting Systems, and Hart InterCivic — have all publicly acknowledged that they place modems in some of their vote tabulators and scanners.

While the vendors claim that their “firewalls” protect computers from outside interference, many of the nation’s leading technical experts say this claim is bogus

“Once a hacker starts talking to a voting machine through the modem,” says Princeton University Computer Science professor Andrew Appel, “they can hack the software and make it cheat in future elections.” It’s as straightforward as that.

So, what can we do?

“We should be unplugging all of these machines from the internet,” says Kevin Skoglund, the computer scientist who led the 10-expert investigatory team. This means keeping elections technologies disconnected all the time, including on election night.

“We cannot make our computers perfectly secure,” says Andrew Appel. “What we should do is remove all of the unnecessary, hackable pathways, such as modems. We should not connect our voting machines directly to the computer networks. That is just inviting trouble.”

As I write this, I would not find it surprising to be added to the “canceled” list alongside Lou Dobbs and Mike Lindell but I will sleep easy at night on MyPillow knowing I did not sell out like FoxNews.

The Power of Otherization

By: Tabitha Korol

Otherization is the age-old phenomenon advanced by individuals who have a sense of their own specialness in the world.  The only antidote for their destructive behavior is for the “others” to assert their dignity and reclaim their culture, civilization, and country. 

***

Some time ago, it was suggested that I submit my essays to a respected online publisher.  It was accepted, but when it came time to read the published piece, I realized it was missing my explanation, the point of my effort.  I checked it against the original and wondered how the line had been dropped.  I called the editor’s attention to what I thought was an inadvertent glitch, only to learn that he had removed it intentionally, not realizing its cruciality.  After a few words of explanation, he agreed to its reinsertion, but the initial readers had been robbed of my intent.

It happened yet again.  Finding no spelling or grammatical errors and, I assumed, feeling a need to “do something,” he took an action that suited his own predisposition.  In his own defense, he cited his credentials.  What good are credentials when the patient has died?  He said it was not his company’s policy to check rewrites with the author, and I explained it was not my policy to have my name attached to changes I’d not endorsed.  And that was that.

Now, years later, I sent my recent essay, “Wasted Lives,” to an Israeli publisher that had been posting my work for numerous years.  I was one of several listed as bloggers.  When I searched my work on the site this time, I found my essay was replete with typographical or spelling errors, sarcastic parenthetical remarks, one or two unusual introductory insertions, and a postscript following my closing quote from a prominent author.  I contacted the editor to ask what happened and realized that she had taken a particular interest in my essay. In fact, she posted it on the op-ed page, which, apparently, then gave her leave to insert and embellish at will.  Her interest was personal, and her interjections were to the situations, quite unnecessary since I provided my opposition to the propaganda in ensuing paragraphs and links.  She was obviously slighted by my displeasure, did not apologize for her blunders, and the piece, complete with the nonsense and misspellings, remains buried forever under my authorship.  That was also that.

These incidents, while certainly small potatoes, are representative of something much larger that we are seeing in our world today.

There are many in positions of varying degrees of influence who have come to believe that they have both the power and perhaps divine right to scrutinize the deeds of others and take any actions they deem appropriate for their own objectives.  They have become the superior beings over the inferior ones who must obey.  The superiors have the right to “otherize,” to wield their power, to view and treat other persons or groups as intrinsically different from and alien to themselves.  “Otherization,” the noun, describes the condition in which an individual or group is excluded by an artificially established norm, thereby creating the discord endemic to a class system.

In our own schools, academia has infused a program that, under the guise of diversity, has divided the children against themselves, taught them to otherize by ethnicity, race, sex, and country of origin.  Instead of equality in laws and opportunities, they are taught equity, for equal outcome, which is unfairly regulating opportunities and treatment for enforced conformity.  The current vilification that has captured and manipulated our population is turning people of color against all Caucasians, uniting against so-called “white supremacism.”  They are first imbued with a sense of victimization, resentment, and anger, then inflated with an entitlement, superiority, and need for revenge.  They are never taught that all of mankind’s history is a story of the enslavement of all people and that we in the west have made the abolition of slavery the law of our land.

The new powerful are then spurred to riot, damage, loot, cause harm and pain while being exonerated of conscience and remorse.  These are our own “jihadis,” protected by their uniform black clothes and masks to erase detection, shame, and facial expressions.  They are united to loot, set fires, bring down monuments to erase our history, and blamelessly attack police and everyday citizens.  This power of destruction, permitted, and even fortified, to flourish with payments and donated signs and weapons, enriches them to continue.  Their destruction has now reached a price tag of many hundreds of millions of dollars.

We know the schools are complicit.  For too long our revolutionary academia abandoned their dedication to a good education and replaced it with social justice ideology – with the goal of redistribution of everything for equity – the same outcome regardless of talent, ability, hard work, acquired knowledge, and achievement.  The promise of equal opportunity penned in the US Declaration of Independence by Thomas Jefferson has been corrupted by the socialists; the lot of some coming at the expense of others.  The elements of tribalism and discord are overcoming civilization and the cardinal values we hold dear.

Beyond the foregoing luminaries are those of far greater influence, the social-media ubermenchen of the Internet or World Wide Web, whose world view is socialism, globalism, and intolerance of the “others.”  Being bestowed with enormous wealth, they, therefore, presume that they must possess exceptional wisdom.  Known as “Big Tech” (BT), they use their technological muscle to censor, shadowban, and data mine to swing our country’s ideology to the left.  Established in the milieu of freedom of speech, intellect, information, expression, differing ideas, and honest debate, BT not only discourages these ideals but is capable of removing them entirely.  Any topic researched may come up its opposite, to the leftist platform, or completely obliterated.

They are self-anointed standard-bearers whose rules are resolute.   Views deemed “hate speech,” without explanation or defense, are eradicated.  The culprits are Apple, Amazon, Facebook, Google, Netflix, and Youtube, which limit “dangerous content” (others’ views) and have gone so far as to remove access to communication necessities from the President of the United States.  If they can do it to him, why not to the rest of us?  A 2020 survey showed that Americans believed Big Tech has too much power, their reach immeasurable, their damage unbounded.

Their power extends to political coercion, control of information to affect public relations and opinions.  Suggestions of buyers’ remorse with regard to the election of Biden-Harris are suddenly surfacing as voters are learning what was previously withheld – information detrimental to their Constitutional rights.  The acolytes of the elites further conducted ballot harvesting, tampering and stuffing; voter suppression, and illegal poling practices.  Their minions threaten job loss and even bodily harm. All of this is only acceptable to a self-proclaimed elite who think in terms of ‘them’ and ‘us,’ classic otherization.

The winner was announced, the installation made – of a mentally impaired man who is illegally using the title and position of President of the United States.  This was a dream come true, not for us, but for former President Obama, who openly declared that he wanted a third term as president because he is assuredly pulling the strings in the Deep State.  He now has four more years to bring to ruin the country that he and his wife openly detest and disrespect.  And should the illegitimacy be challenged, a tall wall with razor wire (a wall that Democrats eschewed for our southern border) encircles the compound in Washington.  Further, 27,000 armed National Guards also patrol, a sure-fire sign of a tyrannical regime’s preparedness to fight the 80 million flag-waving, freedom-loving American citizens, the Others.

We are now as close as we could ever have imagined to being a totalitarian state, with companies closing and rampant job loss, citizens deprived of access to communication and other basic services, opinions stifled, and threats of re-education camps or classes.  The left has ample control over every facet of our society and, cleverly, has shifted the blame to the victims, the Others, the inferior white Europeans whose ancestry built the best free nation in the world, the ones who said we have a Republic – if we can keep it.
