Through the years I have written about false teachers and the “itching ear” crowd. Well, this past week in the midst of the devastation of Texas and its people by Hurricane Harvey, one of these so-called teachers showed the world his true colors.
He will answer for this.
Joel Osteen has never been a true pastor of the Gospel. He is a motivational speaker and the people who happily sit under his “Your best life now” speeches are deceived. But they really only have themselves to blame.
“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables” (2 Timothy 4: 3-4).
If you are among those in Osteen’s congregation, and you are angry at this article; you should take this to heart. You should know that if you have never repented of your sin, and trusted the Lord Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sin – you are NOT born again. You will NOT go to heaven when you die.

Joel Osteen and his beautiful wife live in a $10.5 million dollar home. Here is a picture of it:
They live like royalty. NO ONE should get rich from sharing Christ. But even though Osteen’s congregation believes that he is sharing the Gospel; he is a business man who saw the opportunity to make millions of dollars from his “congregation.”
Sharing in the Sufferings of Christ
When Christians are beheaded in various places in this world, was that their best life now? When Christians are mocked and called all sorts of disparaging names – do you think that they are experiencing their best life now?
When we come into the family of God through His Son, Jesus, we should expect to suffer for His namesake. This is not our home. We are hated by those who do not believe in God. I believe a time is coming when we will be imprisoned for our belief in Jesus as Lord and Savior.
Osteen Gets Rich off his Congregation
While people on fixed incomes give much of their money to the Osteens, Joel and Victoria live a life similar to a King and a Queen. Is this the Gospel of Jesus Christ? That’s a rhetorical question.
By shutting down his “church” building, and not allowing victims of the monstrous storm to have shelter, food and water in his building; the Lord used this to show people what Joel Osteen is really about.
“When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory.All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats.And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in;I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’
“Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink?When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You?Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’
“Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels:for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink;I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’
“Then they also will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You? Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me. And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life” (Matthew 25: 31-46).
For those who need proof that Osteen refused to open his doors:
Hillary Clinton received the “Margaret Sanger” award. I would liken that to someone receiving the “Adolph Hitler” award.
This woman was a beast. She was the RACIST of racists. She wanted to make sure that the Black communities had a “Planned Parenthood” on just about every corner. She believed that the Black population needed to be greatly reduced.
Well, maybe or maybe not, but it was still a rather hideous group. Can we not agree on that? This unending desire by the left to defend utterly everything about Planned Parenthood and its founder, Sanger, no matter how ugly, really is quite astonishing.
This same person who read my column went to pages 366-67 of Sanger’s 1938 autobiography—as I recommended doing—and accused me of “cherry-picking” from that material. I must say, I am pleased simply to see that some liberals are actually going to those pages. They have been in existence for 77 years now. It is high time that liberals read them. I’ve begged them to read that disturbing passage, and, alas, some of them are—though they’re usually motivated, it seems, to criticize me rather than Sanger. To avoid further accusations of cherry-picking this material, I’m herein reprinting the entire Sanger passage for readers to dissect themselves:
Always to me any aroused group was a good group, and therefore I accepted an invitation to talk to the women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan at Silver Lake, New Jersey, one of the weirdest experiences I had in lecturing.
My letter of instruction told me what train to take, to walk from the station two blocks straight ahead, then two to the left. I would see a sedan parked in front of a restaurant. If I wished I could have ten minutes for a cup of coffee or bite to eat, because no supper would be served later.
I obeyed orders implicitly, walked the blocks, saw the car, found the restaurant, went in and ordered some cocoa, stayed my allotted ten minutes, then approached the car hesitatingly and spoke to the driver. I received no reply. She might have been totally deaf as far as I was concerned. Mustering up my courage, I climbed in the back and settled back. Without a turn of the head, a smile, or a word to let me know I was right, she stepped on the self-starter. For fifteen minutes we wound around the streets. It must have been towards six in the afternoon. We took this lonely lane and that through the woods, and an hour later pulled up in a vacant space near a body of water beside a large, unpainted, barnish building.
My driver got out, talked with several other women, then said to me severely, “Wait here. We will come for you.” She disappeared. More cars buzzed up the dusty road into the parking place. Occasionally men dropped wives who walked hurriedly and silently within. This went on mystically until night closed down and I was alone in the dark. A few gleams came through chinks in the window curtains. Even though it was May, I grew chillier and chillier.
After three hours I was summoned at last and entered a bright corridor filled with wraps. As someone came out of the hall I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses. I waited another twenty minutes. It was warmer and I did not mind so much. Eventually the lights were switched on, the audience seated itself, and I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak.
Never before had I looked into a sea of faces like these. I was sure that if I uttered one word, such as abortion, outside the usual vocabulary of these women they would go off into hysteria. And so my address that night had to be in the most elementary terms, as though I were trying to make children understand.
In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered. The conversation went on and on, and when we were finally through it was too late to return to New York. Under a curfew law everything in Silver Lake shut at nine o’clock. I could not even send a telegram to let my family know whether I had been thrown in the river or was being held incommunicado. It was nearly one before I reached Trenton, and I spent the night in a hotel.
Those who have accused me of cherry-picking criticize me for not underscoring statements from Sanger like “hysteria,” “aroused,” and “weirdest.” Actually, I have noted those words when writing about this, and those words (I believe) actually further make the case against Sanger. They demonstrate that she knew that this was an extreme group. She clearly is intimidated somewhat. In fact, note Sanger’s comment about letting her family know that she hadn’t been thrown into the river. This suggests she understood that this was a rather violent group, right? What gave her that hint? The illuminated crosses? The KKK’s history of lynching black people?
Most notably, there are no regrets here articulated by Sanger. And there’s also no indication of what she said that so thrilled the KKK sisters that they proffered a dozen invitations to her to speak again. If what she said prompted such an enthusiastic reaction, we ought to be able to safely assume it was consistent with their values. Moreover, all of this is, flatly, indefensible. No, not “any aroused group” is a “good group.” Could you imagine a prominent conservative speaking to the KKK and then telling the New York Times, “Hey, to me, any aroused group is a good group, and so I accepted an invitation to speak to the Klan.” Would even one liberal in America accept that?
Aside from the KKK speech, another item is often cited by Sanger critics as evidence of her alleged racism. It’s another troubling Sangerism that her admirers on the left feel compelled to defend. In a December 10, 1939 letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble of the Eugenics Society, in the context of discussing the Negro Project, which she developed in concert with white birth-control reformers, Sanger wrote: “We do not want word to get out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out the idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”
What does the disturbing statement mean? It has been typically interpreted in two opposing ways: 1) Sanger admirers argue that she was saying “We do not want word to get out that we want to exterminate the Negro population” because, in fact, she did not want to exterminate the Negro population; and 2) Sanger detractors argue that she wanted to keep quiet her (alleged) desire to (indeed) exterminate the “Negro population.”
This we can say with absolute certainty: Margaret Sanger spoke to a women’s organization affiliated with the KKK and she started the Negro Project to bring birth-control information and clinics to impoverished southern African-Americans. Moreover, the Planned Parenthood founder unequivocally preached a creed of “race improvement,” which meant refining the gene pool and controlling and limiting the reproduction of human beings whom she thought weakened the human race. She clearly saw “Negroes” as among those members of the human race whose reproduction she wanted to control. And there is no doubt that the KKK, being absolute racists, would have lauded that.
Was Sanger plotting to eliminate all blacks? Of course, not. But she was plotting to control the reproduction of blacks and of the human race generally. She was a racial eugenicist. Was she a racist-eugenicist? Be careful. Really, even Margaret Sanger’s abortion views are not entirely clear. That is something that I’ve also written about many times for years.
What else can be said for certain about Sanger and race? If the person we’re describing here was a prominent conservative rather than a progressive icon, this would be grounds for liberals to completely discredit and outright destroy that conservative. Liberals should reconsider their views of Sanger and what she has wrought.
12 Disturbing Quotes from Margaret Sanger: Planned Parenthood’s Foundress
Apparently, supporting and advocating eugenics earns you a place of honor in today’s world. If you’re Francis Galton, who coined the term, eugenics meaning “well born,” then you’re forgotten. If you’re Margaret Sanger, then the world’s largest abortion provider names an annual award after you.
Margaret Sanger began in 1923 the American Birth Control League. It would go on to become Planned Parenthood Federation of America.
Back in March 2014, Nancy Pelosi, a self-professed Catholic, and current Minority Leader in the US House of Representatives, was given the dubious “Margaret Sanger Award.”
So, what did Sanger stand for? To give you an idea, here are 12 quotes:
1) “[Our objective is] unlimited sexual gratification without the burden of unwanted children… [Women must have the right] to live … to love… to be lazy … to be an unmarried mother … to create… to destroy… The marriage bed is the most degenerative influence in the social order… The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”
– Margaret Sanger (editor). The Woman Rebel, Volume I, Number 1. Reprinted in Woman and the New Race. New York: Brentanos Publishers, 1922 (emphasis mine).
2) “We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. And the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”
– Margaret Sanger’s December 19, 1939 letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble, 255 Adams Street, Milton, Massachusetts. Original source: Sophia Smith Collection, Smith College, North Hampton, Massachusetts. Also described in Linda Gordon’s Woman’s Body, Woman’s Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America. New York: Grossman Publishers, 1976 (emphasis mine).
3) “Today eugenics is suggested by the most diverse minds as the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems.
“I think you must agree… that the campaign for birth control is not merely of eugenic value, but is practically identical with the final aims of eugenics… Birth control propaganda is thus the entering wedge for the eugenic educator.
“As an advocate of birth control I wish… to point out that the unbalance between the birth rate of the ‘unfit’ and the ‘fit,’ admittedly the greatest present menace to civilization, can never be rectified by the inauguration of a cradle competition between these two classes. In this matter, the example of the inferior classes, the fertility of the feeble-minded, the mentally defective, the poverty-stricken classes, should not be held up for emulation.
“On the contrary, the most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the over-fertility of the mentally and physically defective.”
4) “Our failure to segregate morons who are increasing and multiplying… demonstrates our foolhardy and extravagant sentimentalism…
“[Philanthropists] encourage the healthier and more normal sections of the world to shoulder the burden of unthinking and indiscriminate fecundity of others; which brings with it, as I think the reader must agree, a dead weight of human waste.
“Instead of decreasing and aiming to eliminate the stocks that are most detrimental to the future of the race and the world, it tends to render them to a menacing degree dominant…
“We are paying for, and even submitting to, the dictates of an ever-increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all.”
– Margaret Sanger. The Pivot of Civilization, 1922, pages 116, 122, and 189. Swarthmore College Library edition (emphasis mine).
5) “Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.”
6) “One fundamental fact alone, however, indicates the necessity of Birth Control if eugenics is to accomplish its purpose…
“Before eugenists and others who are laboring for racial betterment can succeed, they must first clear the way for Birth Control. Like the advocates of Birth Control, the eugenists, for instance, are seeking to assist the race toward the elimination of the unfit. Both are seeking a single end but they lay emphasis upon different methods.”
7) The government ought to “apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.”
And the government should “give certain dysgenic groups (those with ‘bad genes’) in our population their choice of segregation or sterilization.”
– Margaret Sanger, “A Plan for Peace.” Birth Control Review, April 1932, pages 107-108 (emphasis mine).
8) “The third group [of society] are those irresponsible and reckless ones having little regard for the consequences of their acts, or whose religious scruples prevent their exercising control over their numbers. Many of this group are diseased, feeble-minded, and are of the pauper element dependent upon the normal and fit members of society for their support. There is no doubt in the minds of all thinking people that the procreation of this group should be stopped.”
– Margaret Sanger. Speech quoted in Birth Control: What It Is, How It Works, What It Will Do. The Proceedings of the First American Birth Control Conference. Held at the Hotel Plaza, New York City, November 11-12, 1921. Published by the Birth Control Review, pages 172 and 174 (emphasis mine).
9) “There is only one reply to a request for a higher birthrate among the intelligent, and that is to ask the government to first take the burden of the insane and feeble-minded from your back. [Mandatory] sterilization for these is the answer.”
10) “In passing, we should here recognize the difficulties presented by the idea of ‘fit’ and ‘unfit.’ Who is to decide this question? The grosser, the more obvious, the undeniably feeble-minded should, indeed, not only be discouraged but prevented from propagating their kind. But among the writings of the representative Eugenists [sic], one cannot ignore the distinct middle-class bias that prevails.”
– Margaret Sanger, quoted in Charles Valenza. “Was Margaret Sanger a Racist?” Family Planning Perspectives, January-February 1985, page 44 (emphasis mine).
11) Birth control: “To create a race of thoroughbreds.”
– Margaret Sanger, “Unity.” The Birth Control Review, Nov 1921 (emphasis mine).
12) “Birth Control is not merely an individual problem; it is not merely a national question, it concerns the whole wide world, the ultimate destiny of the human race.
“Hordes of people [are] born, who live, yet who have done absolutely nothing to advance the race one iota. Their lives are hopeless repetitions… Such human weeds clog up the path, drain up the energies and the resources of this little earth. We must clear the way for a better world; we must cultivate our garden.”
Again, Margaret Sanger is the woman Planned Parenthood proudly affiliates with, and calls a “great hero.” In fact, although not mentioning Sanger’s obvious efforts to promote eugenics, Planned Parenthood goes on to state“Sanger’s early efforts remain the hallmark of Planned Parenthood’s mission.” – source
Can you see this so clearly all over this sin ravaged world? The Blacks do not want to hear bad things about Margaret Sanger. They do not want to hear bad things about the Democrats. Basically, they don’t want to hear TRUTH!
If you have friends who are Margaret Sanger fans, you may want to share this article with them. Not sure whether it would make a difference at this point; the god of this world has deceived the masses. It does say that our God sends strong delusion and that the people would rather believe a lie. Don’t forget that Satan must go before God just as he did before his attacks on Job and his family.
The evil on this earth at the present time is much like the days of Noah. People are partying and drinking and having a grand old time. They have NO idea what is coming.
We are blessed that we do know these things, because God told us that they would happen. Every word in the Bible is TRUTH. God cannot lie. He wants His people to be informed.
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children” (Hosea 4:6).
Jews are expected to be liberal and vote Democrat – end of discussion.
Well, in my life that certainly was not the end of the discussion. After I was born again in 1983, my world view, my politics; everything that I was taught to believe as a Jew went up in smoke. I was no longer a liberal. I could not reconcile liberal views with the Word of God. It was a dramatic change for me and I knew that it had to be God Himself transforming me into His new creation.
Even before I was saved, I knew that abortion was evil. I wrote an article a couple of years ago, in which I revealed the pain, sorrow and torment I experienced when I was told that if I didn’t have an abortion, I would no longer be welcomed into my family. You can read this article here:
I felt guilty and beyond hope. I knew that what I had done was evil and wrong, but it wasn’t until I met the Lord that I experienced forgiveness for this sin. Jesus helped me to see why abortion is such a terrible sin. He also helped me to see that there were so many grieving women who thought that they would never be forgiven. I received hundreds of emails after I wrote that piece. Christian women who had abortions poured their hearts out in these emails, and thanked me for writing about my abortion. Satan was keeping these women in bondage – telling them that they were beyond hope; that God would never forgive this.
I have never seen hatred for a president as I am seeing for President Trump. The mainstream media cannot hide their disdain for him. People openly express that they hope that he is assassinated.
I am spending time with a relative as I write this article. She has been expressing her hatred for Trump to me. She even told me that another woman in my family wants to “kill” Trump before she dies. I know that this is just talk, but to me it’s quite appalling. This goes beyond human hatred. This is demonic.
I asked the relative with whom I am staying why she has such hatred for our president. At first she just said “I HATE him!” But then I asked for a reason. She answered me with a general statement “It’s because of things he does and says.” I then asked her to give me an example. She hesitated but then brought up what Trump had said about women when he didn’t know he was being taped.
I said to her “How about Bill Clinton and what he did in the Oval Office with Lewinsky?” She responded “But Trump wasn’t president yet!” I could only take this to mean that once you become president, you can do what you want. That does not make any sense to me. I’m convinced that this hatred of Trump is directly from Satan and he is using the MSM to do his bidding. Liberals believe anything and everything that comes out of CNN, MSNBC and the major networks.
Controlling the Media
If you watch the Leftist media, you undoubtably get the news through the lens of extreme liberalism. The thing that is most troubling is that the liberal viewers believe all of it – lock, stock and barrel.
After the violence in Charlottesville, President Trump expressed very articulately a question he had about the removal of Confederate monuments. He asked “Where does this end…….should we remove George Washington’s monument, and how about Thomas Jefferson; they both had slaves.”
Had to put on my headphones
CNN stays on all day long at my relatives home. I could feel myself getting angrier and angrier, so I finally put on my headphones while I was making dinner. I should have put on Praise music, but I could still hear the drivel coming from Anderson Cooper and Wolf Blitzer. The station had segment after segment about their hatred of Trump. They called him mentally unstable. They called him unpresidential. They insinuated that he is a bigot. ALL lies.
I finally turned to my relative and asked her “Would you please put on the Animal Planet?” I guess she could see in my eyes that I was getting pretty upset. Or maybe it was when I shouted at Anderson Cooper “LIAR!” Anyway, she turned on the Animal Planet.
Liberals are serving Satan and do not even know it
Satan is the author of confusion, the father of lies and the accuser of the Brethren both day and night. The liberals…….BLM……Occupy……..and now Antifa are all under the spell of the god of this world. They don’t think for themselves – they are told what to think.
President Trump loves Israel and this makes the evil one livid. While BHO was in office, his disdain for PM Netanyahu and Israel made the devil very happy. Satan and his minions were enraged at the election of Donald Trump as our president. The dark forces of evil did NOT see that coming.
Pray for President Trump
We must continue to pray for our president and his family and administration. But while we are praying for them, we should also be lifting up his enemies to God.
When I attended the University of Maryland, I saw first hand what SDS (Students for a Democratic Society) and Weather Underground (Bill Ayers) was doing. I saw hatred and violence and the burning of our flag. These people would gather together and make a lot of noise – angry noise. They protested the Vietnam war, which was certainly their right to do – peacefully.
But the war was just a front for their real agenda. They were anarchists; they were Communists; they were haters of democracy and Capitalism. Does this sound familiar?
Anarchists wait for a time such as now, to raise their hate filled fists and shake those fists at the “Establishment.” With the shadow government in the background, and George Soros footing the bills, the Antifa movement has its sights on one, President Donald Trump. You see, they must attempt to convince enough of the America people that President Trump is a “fascist.” With the MSM on their side, the movement seems much grander than it is in reality.
Nazis and White Supremacists
There will always be members of these bigoted groups in our country. They have the right to peacefully assemble. Those of us who understand how detestable these people are, may not like these racists to be assembled in our cities, but the First Amendment guarantees their right to gather – peacefully.
When the so-called Antifa groups faced off with the Nazis, it became a brawl and then more violence ensued when a crazed person was determined to wreak havoc by mowing down people with their vehicle as they gathered.
If the Antifa group had not come to the Nazi gathering – no one would have been injured or killed. But you see, that is why those in Antifa are paid by George Soros. The goal is to destabilize America. Theses thugs are paid violent protestors. They are bused in from different parts of our country. Very well organized.
Today, it has come out that Ayers is partnering with Antifa in the spread of militant violence against pro-America demonstrators. Leftists have historically turned Ayers into a folklore figure who they cherish and respect despite his violent past.
Bill Ayers was directly linked to today’s #BerkeleyProtests and has been actively involved in numerous actions against the Trump administration.
To further corroborate their connection to Antifa, a Breitbart article from earlier in the year breaks down in crystal clear detail the role Refuse Fascism plays in the chaos surrounding the cries of “fascism” toward the right. –source
Three Weather Underground members were killed when a bomb they had built exploded in the basement of a townhouse in Greenwich Village on March 6, 1970. In the days following the explosion, police found 57 sticks of dynamite, four completed bombs, detonators, timing devices, and other bomb-making equipment. Bettmann/Corbis photo.
On January 29, 1975, an explosion rocked the headquarters of the U.S. State Department in Washington, D.C. No one was hurt, but the damage was extensive, impacting 20 offices on three separate floors. Hours later, another bomb was found at a military induction center in Oakland, California, and safely detonated.
A domestic terrorist group called the Weather Underground claimed responsibility for both bombs. Originally called the Weatherman or the Weathermen, a name taken from a line in a Bob Dylan song, the Weather Underground was a small, violent offshoot of Students for a Democratic Society, or SDS, a group created in the turbulent ‘60s to promote social change.
When SDS collapsed in 1969, the Weather Underground stepped forward, inspired by communist ideologies and embracing violence and crime as a way to protest the Vietnam War, racism, and other left-wing aims. “Our intention is to disrupt the empire … to incapacitate it, to put pressure on the cracks,” claimed the group’s 1974 manifesto, Prairie Fire.
By the next year, the group had claimed credit for 25 bombings—including the U.S. Capitol, the Pentagon, the California Attorney General’s office, and a New York City police station.
The FBI doggedly pursued these terrorists as their attacks mounted. Many members were identified, but their small numbers and guerrilla tactics helped them hide under assumed identities. In 1978, the Bureau arrested five members who were plotting to bomb a politician’s office. Others were captured after two policemen and a Brinks’ driver were murdered in a botched armored car robbery in Nanuet, New York, in 1981.
Key to disrupting the group for good was the newly created FBI-New York City Police Anti Terrorist Task Force. It brought together the strengths of both organizations and focused them on these domestic terrorists. The task force and others like it paved the way for today’s Joint Terrorism Task Forces—created by the Bureau in each of its field offices to fuse federal, state, and local law enforcement and intelligence resources to combat today’s terrorist threats.
By the mid-’80s, the Weather Underground was essentially history. Still, several of these fugitives were able to successfully hide themselves for decades, emerging only in recent years to answer for their crimes. Once again, it shows that grit and partnerships can and will defeat shadowy, resilient terrorist groups.
A lot of conservatives are very frustrated at inaction in certain areas. And they have a good point. Sometimes things that need to be done aren’t happening. But other times they are moving forward secretly without making headlines.
Unlike Holder and Lynch, Sessions has to make some moves quitely without putting out press releases about them. Here’s an example of one of those silent running investigations.
The Department of Justice has requested information on visitors to a website used to organize protests against President Trump, the Los Angeles-based Dreamhost said in a blog post published on Monday.
Dreamhost, a web hosting provider, said that it has been working with the Department of Justice for several months on the request, which believes goes too far under the Constitution.
DreamHost claimed that the complying with the request from the Justice Department would amount to handing over roughly 1.3 million visitor IP addresses to the government, in addition to contact information, email content and photos of thousands of visitors to the website, which was involved in organizing protests against Trump on Inauguration Day.
The warrant, dated July 12, says that authorities will seize any information constituting violations of D.C. code governing riots that involve individuals connected to the protests on Inauguration Day.
More than 200 people were indicted on felony rioting charges in connection with the protests in Washington on Jan. 20.
“We’re planning a series of massive direct actions that will shut down the inauguration ceremonies and any related celebrations—the inaugural parade, the inaugural balls, you name it,” Disrupt J20 declares on its website, adding: We’re also planning to paralyze the city itself, using blockades and marches to stop traffic and even public transit.”
Organizers plan early-morning “blockade actions” Jan. 20 built around such banners as “racial justice,” “trade justice,” “climate justice,” “economic justice,” “communities under attack,” “labor direct action,” and “anti-war and Palestine.”
Our own Matthew Vadum noted the Soros linkage.
“George Soros is a major funder of Alliance for Global Justice, a radical left-wing group that collected donations on behalf of the Occupy Wall Street movement,” Vadum told The Daily Signal, adding:
Alliance for Global Justice is now functioning as a fiscal sponsor for a group called Refuse Fascism that is heavily involved in the Disrupt J20 effort. A fiscal sponsor accepts donations on behalf of unincorporated or small groups and charges a modest administrative fee so that donors can deduct the donations from their taxes.
Now, the DOJ is trying to shine a light under the rock. –source
The violence and murder of a protester in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend has been attributed to far-right elements that descended on the city to demonstrate against the proposed removal of a statue of Confederate war hero Robert E Lee.
President Donald Trump drew widespread criticism on Saturday when he said that there was violence on “many sides” in Charlottesville and initially neglected to explicitly censure the white supremacists who organised the rally.
On Monday, he bowed to pressure to castigate the KKK, white supremacists and neo-nazis.
But many conservatives say blame should be shared by Antifa, a loosely affiliated group of far-left protesters.
Critics argue the media tends to excuse violence by Antifa militants just because they are fighting white supremacists and their odious ideology.
The social causes of Antifa (short for anti-fascist or Anti-Fascist action) are easily identifiable as left-leaning.
Most members oppose all forms of racism and sexism, and strongly oppose what they see as the nationalist, anti-immigration and anti-Muslim policies that Mr Trump has enacted.
However, as their name indicates, Antifa focuses more on fighting far-right ideology than encouraging pro-left policy.
Unlike the mainstream left, they do not seek to gain power through traditional channels – winning elections and passing bills into law.
Antifa is anti-government and anti-capitalist, and their methodologies are often perceived as more closely aligned with anarchists than the mainstream left.
Antifa does not shy away from militant protest methods, including the destruction of property and sometimes physical violence.
They were present at the 2017 Berkeley protests of far-right speaker Milo Yiannopoulos and at violent protests against Donald Trump’s inauguration; they were also present at Charlottesville.
Antifa’s roots go back almost as far as Nazis
Much like the far-right, Antifa members around the world comprise a patchwork of groups, though the most active appear to be based in the US, the UK (under the name Anti-Fascist Action) and Germany (Antifaschistische Aktion).
The German movement was founded in 1932 to provide a militant far-left group to counter the fast-rising Nazi party.
They were disbanded in 1933 after Hitler took control of parliament and resurrected in the 1980s as a response to neo-Nazism after the fall of the Berlin Wall.
President Trump’s election seems to have been something of a touchstone for the Antifa movement, which has links with the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement and various anarchist groups.
According to James Anderson, one of a group of people who run the popular anti-fascist and anarchist news site, It’s Going Down, interest has spiked since Mr Trump’s election.
The It’s Going Down website, which received around 300 hits daily in 2015, now garners between 10-20,000 hits a day.
Since the events in Charlottesville on Saturday, the It’s Going Down Twitter handle has gained 2,000 new followers.
While interest may have spiked since Mr Trump’s election, it is all but impossible to quantify how many people are active members of Antifa.
Much like the far-right, chapters of Antifa are loosely connected and highly secretive, and organise mostly on message boards such as Reddit and over social networks like Twitter and Facebook.
Calls to label Antifa a terror organisation
Antifa has become a popular topic for right-leaning websites and among conservative pundits.
Fox News commentator and conservative speaker Erick Erickson says in The Resurgent, a conservative blog, that “Antifa and the white supremacists are two sides of a common coin. The people dead in Charlottesville died because of one neo-Nazi, but there were dozen [sic] of people left bleeding in the streets because of Antifa”.
Meanwhile, a change.org petition lobbying Mr Trump to declare Antifa a domestic terror organisation has garnered nearly 100,000 supporters.
While Antifa has gained relatively little attention in the mainstream media, that may soon change.
According to Mr Anderson, the events in Charlottesville over the weekend represent a “sea change” in how Antifa is perceived.
“This is a huge turning point and vindication for our movement,” he said.
“We are working with Black Lives Matter, local clergy, this is not a movement that wants to be a lone group of militants,” he said.
“This is about popular power. Sometimes that looks controversial – but this is a broad movement, and we are looking to engage a wide variety of people.” – source
So now hopefully, many will better understand this “movement” funded by the infamous George Soros. But there is something that I must point out here:
These anarchists have a higher purpose, and that is to attempt to convince the American people that our President is a fascist. The absurdity of this is astounding to me.
They use his immigration policies and his concern and desire to implement a better vetting system for Muslims from countries which are known to fund terrorism. A fascist? I don’t think so. More like a protector of America.
They are given sound bites and quotes taken entirely out of context to portray Donald Trump as a fascist.
It’s not going to work. Period.
I read an article today in which a poll was taken about Charlottesville. The question was “Do you think that President Trump’s Words about Charlottesville were strong enough? 62% of those polled answered NO. 27% answered YES and 11% said they didn’t know. This question was in regards to our president’s comments on other monuments such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson – “Where does it end?”
The same people polled were asked if they thought that Confederate monuments are offensive or are they part of America’s history. Again 62% said they are part of our history.
It seems that the American people are speaking again as they did in our last presidential election.
Keep looking up, brethren. Our Lord and Savior could come at any time!
