The worldwide protests going on this weekend are about more than just some truckers upset about vaccines and vaccine mandates.
The world is on fire. People are rising up to make a stand against tyranny. This is good rising up and confronting evil. People are waking up and sensing the urgency of the hour. When you truly wake up, you don’t shy away from the fight.
Parents protested outside the Jane Addams Elementary School in Moline when the first after-school Satan Club met there last month.
Last Thursday, a few people came out to protest the club’s second meeting as well.
It’s why some say that spiritual warfare is now taking place in America’s public schools.
The Satanic Temple, which runs the program, said students would be offered activities such as science and crafts projects, puzzles and games — and that they would learn about benevolence, empathy, critical thinking, problem-solving and creative expression, too.
Lucien Greaves, the Satanic Temple spokesperson, told Fox News about the clubs, “I’m hoping that with our presence, people can see that good people can have different perspectives, sometimes on the same mythology, but not mean any harm.”

Greaves also said, “We’re not including items of religious opinion … We’re not teaching children about Satanism. They’re just going to know that this is taught by Satanists.”
The Satanic Temple is not hiding the fact that it created the clubs to take on the Christian club called the Good News Club — which has become its No. 1 nemesis.
Said Greaves, “The after-school Satan Clubs were conceived of in order to give an alternative to [the] religious indoctrination [of] after-school programs.”
‘Contrary to the Good News of Jesus Christ’
Reece Kauffman, president of Child Evangelism, which operates the Good News Clubs, said of the Satanic Temple, “I cannot tell you what’s in their hearts, but they certainly are doing work that would be contrary to the Good News of Jesus Christ.”
Good News Christian Clubs are now in about 5,000 schools nationwide.
An Addams School spokesperson released a statement saying it was not endorsing the Satan Club or the Good News Club. Yet because of the Supreme Court’s decision, it could not turn down any group that wanted to start an after-school program, it said.
The Supreme Court ruled in June 2001 that religious groups could offer after-school programs in public schools. The high court ruled 6-3 for a Christian youth group, saying a New York public school district must allow the Good News Club to hold after-school meetings for children. (Associated Press)
Last month, Fox News Digital reached out to the Addams School district for comment about the Satan Club in Moline. A spokesperson said a flyer that had been placed within the school building was legitimate — but she stressed it was “notgenerated by the district, not distributed to all students, and not affiliated with any teacher in the district.” Candace Sountris, communications director, also said, “Community use of [the] school facility after school hours [is] approved by the Board of Education in accordance with IL School Code.”
Kauffman of Child Evangelism recently told Fox News, “We’re not trying to be against anyone. We’re simply trying to take the biblical Good News of the Gospel to the children.

And for them, the devil is simply a symbol of “defiance, independence, wisdom and self-empowerment.”
The Bible, however, has plenty to say about the dangers of spiritual evil and its No. 1 perpetrator, Satan.
It calls the devil the “father of lies” whose real power rests in his ability to deceive. Readers of the Bible know that the devil’s first appearance on creation’s stage is in the Garden of Eden, tempting Adam and Eve, and the infamous “Fall from Grace.”
Satan, in the form of a serpent, convinces the ancestral humans to defy God’s decree to not eat the fruit of a tree. It’s not the fruit that caused the problem — it was disobeying God.
That ancient act, the Bible says, ushered into creation disease, decay, death … and all sorts of crippling sins that separate humans from God.
But the Genesis story leaves one clue as to how it will be resolved, and how the world will someday be redeemed. It will happen during a key meeting between God and Satan sometime in the centuries ahead — that a descendent of Eve will “bruise” Satan’s head, while Satan “shall bruise his heel” (Genesis 3:15).
That cryptic verse in Scripture has spawned many religious discussions. But according to most theologians, that “crushing” and “bruising” happens in the New Testament, and the encounter begins in another garden, the Garden of Gethsemane, when Jesus is betrayed and arrested.
The victory over Satan occurs on the cross where Jesus is put to death, and where death itself, the true enemy, was defeated with Jesus’ resurrection from the dead.

But it doesn’t mean Satan isn’t still dangerous. He’s like a wounded animal.
John Stott, the noted English theologian, used Satan’s depiction in the Bible’s apocalyptic book, Revelation, to explain why Satan is still a danger to us. It’s because we live in the overlap of the ages between the world of a fallen creation — and the new heavens and new earth that Jesus brought.

Stott said Satan as the “Red Dragon,” and his legion of fallen angels, are still engaged in a spiritual battle with God’s image bearers, us … but that “he knows his time is short” (Rev. 12:12).
“The devil,” Stott also said, “has been defeated and dethroned … However, the rage he feels in the knowledge of his approaching doom leads him to redouble [his activities]. Victory over him has been won, but painful conflict with him continues” (“The Cross of Christ,” page 243).

Brethren, we blood bought born again believers in Jesus Christ KNOW that Satan is real. We know that he is powerful but less powerful than our Precious Lord Jesus..
Pray for these innocent children. This is beyond despicable but should we expect anything else from the Enemy of God??

Special counsel John Durham’s team alleged on Feb. 12 that a tech executive aligned with the Democratic Party was paid to spy on former President Donald Trump’s residences and the White House when Trump was president.
Lawyers for the Clinton campaign allegedly paid the technology executive to infiltrate servers at the Trump Tower and the White House, Durham said in court filings (pdf), in order to establish an “inference” and “narrative” to tie Trump to the Russian government. Durham’s office made the claim as part of his investigation that had brought charges against Michael Sussmann, a lawyer who had worked on behalf of the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign and who is currently charged with making a false statement to the FBI.
Durham alleged Sussmann “had assembled and conveyed the allegations to the FBI on behalf of at least two specific clients, including a technology executive (Tech Executive 1) at a U.S.-based internet company (Internet Company 1) and the Clinton campaign,” according to a section in the court filing, titled “Factual Background.”
Billing records he obtained suggest that Sussmann “repeatedly billed the Clinton Campaign for his work on the Russian Bank-1 allegations” and that the unnamed technology executive met and communicate with Mark Elias, a left-wing lawyer and operative who has filed numerous election-related lawsuits on behalf of the Democrats. Sussman previously pleaded not guilty and accused Durham of acting in a politically motivated manner.
“Tech Executive-1 also enlisted the assistance of researchers at a U.S.-based university who were receiving and analyzing large amounts of Internet data in connection with a pending federal government cybersecurity research contract,” Durham’s filing states.
The executive also “tasked these researchers to mine Internet data to establish ‘an inference’ and ‘narrative’ tying then-candidate Trump to Russia,” the filing states, adding that the technology firm that the executive worked for “had come to access and maintain dedicated servers” for Trump’s executive office.
“Tech Executive-1 and his associates exploited this arrangement by mining the EOP’s DNS traffic and other data for the purpose of gathering derogatory information about Donald Trump,” Durham’s filing reads. EOP refers to Trump’s office, while DNS traffic refers to traffic coming in and out of a server.
Durham further wrote that Sussmann “provided an updated set of allegations—including the Russian Bank-1 data and additional allegations relating to Trump” to another federal agency that isn’t the FBI. Claims that Sussmann provided in a meeting in February 2017 relied on “the purported DNS traffic that Tech Executive-1 and others had assembled pertaining to Trump Tower, Donald Trump’s New York City apartment building, the EOP, and the aforementioned health care provider,” according to Durham.
Sussmann, his court filing added, “provided data which he claimed reflected purportedly suspicious DNS lookups by these entities of internet protocol addresses affiliated with a Russian mobile phone provider” in the February 2017 meetings. Sussmann also said such DNS lookups “demonstrated that Trump and/or his associates were using supposedly rare, Russian-made wireless phones in the vicinity of the White House and other locations,” which Durham described as false.
“The Special Counsel’s Office has identified no support for these allegations,” Durham wrote. “Indeed, more complete DNS data that the Special Counsel’s Office obtained from a company that assisted Tech Executive-1 in assembling these allegations reflects that such DNS lookups were far from rare in the United States.”
After Durham’s court filing was unsealed, Trump on Feb. 12 issued a statement claiming it provided “indisputable evidence” his campaign and office were being spied on by Democrats in a bid to connect him to the Russian government. The former president has long decried the Trump–Russia collusion narrative as a falsified witch hunt designed to imperil his political chances while bolstering left-wing mainstream media outlets’ ratings.
“This is a scandal far greater in scope and magnitude than Watergate and those who were involved in and knew about this spying operation should be subject to criminal prosecution,” Trump stated.
And Kash Patel, a former U.S. intelligence official who hosts EpochTV’s “Kash’s Corner,” said the filing reveals a “most intricate and coordinated conspiracy” to target Trump while he was a candidate and later as president. Source
Brethren, this just serves to show the stranglehold over the GOP; that so many are RINOS. Couple that together with the outright IMMORAL, “Nothing to see here” DEMS and it is not hard to understand why America has been taken hostage.
