This rogue Governor just outlawed millenia of Christian tradition with one jaw-dropping ban

0

The coronavirus has been used by petty tyrants to quash civil liberties.

The country has endured an unbelievable amount of government overreach.

Now one rogue Governor just outlawed millenia of Christian tradition with one jaw-dropping ban.

California is an ugly example of a nanny state.

It ranks low in the state freedom index in several areas, and Governor Gavin Newsom once again showed why.

He tried to ban gatherings and fireworks for the Fourth of July, but citizens responded with an amazing fireworks spectacle of their own in an act of defiance.

But Newsom is moving on to a far more dangerous restriction.

Newsom issued a ban on singing in church services.

The new rules read:

“Places of worship must, therefore, discontinue singing and chanting activities and limit indoor attendance to 25 percent of building capacity or a maximum of 100 attendees, whichever is lower.

This is yet another encroachment on religious liberty by the Left.

Sadly, this is all too common, and it’s accelerated during the coronavirus pandemic.

Before Donald Trump deemed churches essential services, several states attempted to bar people from attending church.

Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear ordered the state police to record the license plate numbers of anyone who attended church services and place them under mandatory quarantine, even if they didn’t exit their vehicles.

This ban comes in the wake of nationwide protests that have violated every inch of coronavirus safety measures.

Sean Feucht, worship leader at Bethel Church in Northern California, called out this blatant hypocrisy.

Feucht said, “For the last several weeks, tens of thousands of people have been gathering outdoors in cities all across California and they have been screaming and chanting and protesting, and all the while state officials are encouraging them as they do this.”

This an absurd double standard.

California has seen a dramatic rise in coronavirus cases as a result of the protests, but the Left is trying to blame the spike on economic reopening and singing in church.

This is preposterous.

Not only that, but the rise in cases is also related to a significantly higher rate of testing.

In addition, the mortality rate has been plummeting for several weeks straight.

This is simply a scare tactic by Democrat politicians who want to see people locked down indefinitely, and they’re trampling on the rights of churchgoers in the process.

Do you think Newsom is using churches as a scapegoat for the massive protests that spread the coronavirus?

Colin Kaepernick was handed the Hollywood deal of a lifetime after attacking Independence Day

8

Since his anti-American kneeling stunt, Colin Kaepernick has become a hero to the radical Left.

He has also doubled down in his extremism, even attacking the very notion of celebrating Independence Day in America.

And after that attack, Kaepernick was handed the Hollywood deal of a lifetime.

The entire Black Lives Matter movement is nothing more than an anti-American movement at this point. 

While they initially claimed to care about stopping police brutality and racism, which when looking at the actual data, isn’t really a real issue, they have extended far beyond that.

The group’s founder has admitted to being a “trained Marxist,” and promoted many issues far beyond police accountability.

Black Lives Matter’s issues include abolishing the police, eliminating the nuclear family, and the LGBT agenda. 

But above all, at this point, their main issue seems to be destroying American history.

Statues to dozens of American icons have been ripped down.

While it all began with Confederate Monuments, they have moved on to taking down statues to American president’s like George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, and even slavery abolitionists like Frederick Douglas.  

Kaepernick proved this by attacking America on Independence Day, claiming it is a “celebration of white supremacy.”

“Black ppl have been dehumanized, brutalized, criminalized + terrorized by America for centuries, & are expected to join your commemoration of ‘independence’, while you enslaved our ancestors,” Kaepernick posted on Twitter.

“We reject your celebration of white supremacy & look forward to liberation for all,” Kaepernick added.

These statements seem to be exactly what Hollywood is looking for, because just afterward, Kaepernick was handed a film deal with Disney, in conjunction with ESPN.

Jemele Hill, who ESPN previously bought out of her contract for being too liberal, will produce the documentary that will cover Kaepernick’s life.

“I am excited to announce this historic partnership with Disney across all of its platforms to elevate Black and Brown directors, creators, storytellers, and producers, and to inspire the youth with compelling and authentic perspectives,” Kaepernick said. “I look forward to sharing the docuseries on my life story, in addition to many other culturally impactful projects we are developing.”

It is unclear if Kaepernick will spend much time on his early years, considering that he was adopted by a white family. 

But the documentary is sure to be one that paints him as some brave hero, all because he disrespected the U.S. flag. 

Do you think Colin Kaepernick hates America?

This top Hollywood actor just delivered a powerful Christian message for all to hear

33

Secularists have been at war with religion in America for ages.

Religion has largely been stamped out of institutions controlled by the Left, particularly Hollywood.

But this top Hollywood actor just delivered a powerful Christian message for all to hear.

Denzel Washington is one of the best and most recognizable actors of his generation.

He’s starred in many iconic roles, and along the way he’s maintained a faith in God.

That is quite rare in an industry that’s often hostile toward religion.

During a recent interview, Washington recounted a profound experience in his life when he attended a church service in the 1980s.

He said, “I was filled with the Holy Ghost and it scared me. I said, ‘Wait a minute, I didn’t want to go this deep, I want to party . . .’ I went to church with Robert Townsend and when it came time to come down to the altar I said, ‘You know this time, I’m just going to go down there and give it up and see what happens.’ I went in the prayer room and gave it up and let go and experienced something I’ve never experienced in my life.”

Christians in Hollywood often hide their religiosity so as not to lose work, while others end up on the defensive when speaking about their faith.

Chris Pratt had to defend his church against smears from actress Ellen Page, who is gay, that the church does not allow LGBT people through its doors.

While other actors take every opportunity to cater to the left-wing mob, Washington takes an old school approach and is cagier about his politics.

After the 2016 election, a reporter impolitely asked Washington who he supported, and fired back, “None of your business.”

During a 2004 interview with Katie Couric, Washington rejected the idea that he was part of the Hollywood club.

He said, “I don’t know what Hollywood folks are . . . Hollywood is a town that has some stars on the sidewalk. I don’t know anybody from there . . . I’m not a Hollywood folk. I don’t know who they are . . . I’m a human being. My job is acting.”

Washington has even taken shots at Fake News Media bias.

During a red carpet interview he said, “If you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed. If you do read it, you’re misinformed.”

Washington doesn’t broadcast his politics, but his belief in God and personal responsibility puts him at odds with the super “woke” set within the industry.

While on a press junket for the film Roman J. Israel, Esq., which deals with the criminal justice system, Washington said of the incarceration problem, “I think it’s more important to make headway in our own house. By the time the system comes into play, the damage is done. They’re not locking up seven-year-olds . . . It starts in the house. It starts in the home.”

Statements like that certainly won’t sit will with the Marxist cultural revolutionaries who want to burn down the entire society.

Will Denzel Washington be “canceled” if he continues to contradict the “woke” orthodoxy?

Leftists Are Trying To Cancel Superhero Movies For An Insane Reason

29

The far-left assault on culture is escalating at breakneck speed.

A small group of loud activists are dictating to the rest of the country what is and isn’t permissible.

Now leftists are trying to cancel superhero movies for an insane reason.

The murder of George Floyd has been expoited by radical leftists who aim to tear apart the country.

Every time these radicals get political leverage, they use it to push the country further to the Left.

Leftists have wanted to abolish the police for decades, and they have enough political capital to advance the ball on this radical agenda.

On the cultural front, they’ve successfully banned shows like Live PD and Cops, and there was even a push to cancel the kids show Paw Patrol.

Even raging anti-police crusader Ice Cube thought that was a bridge too far for the Cultural Revolution.

He tweeted: “My grand baby loves Paw Patrol, this sh*t is going too far.”

But now the cultural terrorists have moved on to the next totem: superhero movies.

TIME magazine argued that it’s now time to “re-examine” superhero films.

Author Eliana Dockterman argued that “cops with capes who enact justice with their powers” are primarily “straight, white men who either function as an extension of a broken U.S. justice system or as vigilantes without any checks on their powers.” 

She opened with a hackneyed intersectional critique of superheroes being “straight, white men” who are emblematic of an unjust system.

She continued, “When Batman ignores orders and goes rogue, there’s no oversight committee to assess whether Bruce Wayne’s biases influence who he brings to justice and how.”

This is an example of the contradictory language leftists use.

The solution to a supposed broken system accountable to no one is a more powerful Soviet-style politburo accountable to no one.

The same people who want to abolish prisons are eager to throw political dissidents in gulags.

Dockterman argued that superhero movies must “reckon with issues of systemic racism – let alone sexism, homophobia, transphobia and other forms of bigotry.”

According to the Left, everything must be political, even popcorn entertainment that’s largely marketed toward kids.

Dockterman concluded, “If Hollywood is to do better in telling these stories, more creators of color need to be given the reins to tell them.”

But she really only means “woke” creators of color.

A creator who favors the writings of Thomas Sowell over Ta-Nehisi Coates needs not apply.

Will the Left’s attack on superhero films be successful?

Tom Hanks just attacked everyone who isn’t wearing a mask with one sick word

56

The CDC has already admitted that asymptomatic carriers almost never spread coronavirus.

Despite this, the Left is demanding everybody wear a mask all the time.

And Tom Hanks just attacked everyone who isn’t wearing a mask with one sick word.

If there is one thing Hollywood celebrities love to do more than anything, it is to shame everyday American citizens. 

From their ivory towers, these Hollywood elites spend their days lecturing Americans living in experiences they have never known. 

So it’s no surprise that Tom Hanks took time to attack Americans who aren’t wearing masks in response to coronavirus. 

And at the end, he said that you are a “pussy” if you don’t wear a mask. 

“Those things are so simple, so easy, if anybody cannot find it in themselves to practice those three very basic things — I just think shame on you,” Hanks said. “Don’t be a pussy, get on with it, do your part. It’s very basic. If you’re driving a car, you don’t go too fast, you use your turn signal and you avoid hitting pedestrians. My Lord, it’s common sense.”

“There’s really only three things we can do in order to get to tomorrow: Wear a mask, social distance, wash our hands,” Hanks continued. 

This is a trend among celebrities at the moment. 

They are all putting out videos shaming Americans about masks. 

This is because it is the current trend. 

Before this, the trend was putting out videos to shame white people, in support of Black Lives Matter.

Naturally, Hanks hops onto all these trends.

It has long been known that Hanks is a liberal. 

He is good friends with Michelle Obama, and sits on the board of her voter registration group, “When We All Vote,” and regularly holds voter registration events with Obama.

The goal of that organization is to turn out more left-wing voters so they can defeat President Trump. 

Hanks has hated Trump for many years.

Before the 2016 election, he declared that Americans would never elect “a simplistic, self-involved gasbag” like Trump.

Hanks is far from the only liberal in Hollywood. 

Joe Biden recently attended a virtual Hollywood fundraiser where he raised $6 million for his campaign. 

The fundraiser was reportedly based entirely around bashing President Trump, with Joe Biden saying very little about what he believes in.

Do you think Hollywood is too liberal?

The NBA just caved to China in a pathetic way

18

The world of sports has taken a turn for the worse by becoming political.

Some of the most vocal figures in sports politics reside in the NBA, patting themselves on the back for ripping America.

And now the NBA just caved to China in a pathetic way.

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James, Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr, and San Antonio Spurs coach Greg Popovich are just a few of the NBA luminaries who attack Donald Trump as if it were a full-time job.

Popovich even sat for an interview with the far-left publication The Nation in order to get in even more digs at Trump.

What would the American people do without these multimillionaires “speaking truth to power”?

The reality is these NBA voices are perfectly fine taking shots at Trump because they have nothing to lose.

In fact, they’ll be rewarded.

But when real courage is required, they mysteriously lose the ability to speak.

Such is the case with the NBA’s relationship vis-à-vis China.

The conflict first began last fall when Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey tweeted support for pro-freedom protesters in Hong Kong.

This was a slap in the face to the Chinese Communist Party, and they came down on the NBA like a piano falling from the sky in a Looney Tunes sketch. 

The NBA immediately bent the knee, and Morey was almost fired for his tepid endorsement of Hong Kongers.

And now the NBA is groveling to China again.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver said in an interview with TIME:

“We’ve had a long history in China. and certainly, this is a bump in the road in our relations…[W]e come to China with a certain set of core American values and principles. I understand also they have a different form of government, and they have a different view how things have been done, how things should be done. Hopefully, we can find mutual respect for each other.”

What a cowardly statement.

There is no mutual respect, only a veritable show trial where the options are exile or death.

China is a country literally has over 1 million Uyghur muslims in concentration camps, forces women to undergo abortions or sterilizations, and has finally annexed Hong Kong.

Popovich was silent about the Chinese atrocities.

Kerr deflected and said America has problems with gun violence.

LeBron was the worst of the three and lectured Morey about not being educated.

Slamming Trump in America takes no guts whatsoever.

Calling out China for their human rights violations with money on the line is completely different.

Since LeBron is so “woke,” perhaps he could criticize China for barring Africans from entering a McDonalds, or speak out about the Africans who were evicted due to the coronavirus.

That’s a fight that might take a little courage.

Has the NBA forever ruined its brand by kowtowing to China?

This smoking gun could shut down Planned Parenthood for good

27

Every year, Planned Parenthood kills thousands upon thousands of unborn babies in the womb. 

And they have been able to get away with it.

But this smoking gun could shut down Planned Parenthood for good.

Nobody aborts more babies each year than Planned Parenthood. 

Due to the disturbing Roe. v. Wade Supreme Court decision, there has been little to stop them.

But public opinion is beginning to turn, with many Americans finally realizing just how evil abortion is.

One of the ways this opinion has been able to change is through exposing Planned Parenthood for their demented activities.

Pro-life groups have been able to expose that Planned Parenthood doesn’t just kill babies in the womb, but that they often either kill them, or let them to die after birth. 

These groups have also exposed that they will sell their fetal baby parts after the procedure is done. 

The Center for Medical Progress has been on the forefront of this.

And after being sued by Planned Parenthood for revealing their secrets, they have been able to find more of their disgusting activities. 

The most recent crop of videos they just released shows Planned Parenthood officials admitting, under oath, that they have allowed babies to die after being birthed during abortions. 

Their new video shows Planned Parenthood’s advanced Bioscience Resources procurement manager Perrin Larton admitting this. 

She was asked about the term “intact” in relation to abortions.

Larton says that while she didn’t observe signs of life in the babies, she did say that, “I can see hearts that are not in an intact POC [product of conception] that are beating independently.”

So she admits that they have seen babies birthed through abortion that have been able to beat their hearts without their support, but that they have allowed them to die.

She also talks about observing patients who have birthed a “nonviable fetus,” meaning that it would not be able to survive without support. 

But in reality that describes any baby moments after birth.

A newborn baby is often at risk of death without some sort of medical support. 

They are essentially arguing that because the baby was not wanted, they had no reason to help it alive after surviving an abortion procedure. 

This should shock anybody with a heart.

But Planned Parenthood doesn’t care, and only wants to continue their highly profitable business based around killing unborn babies. 

Do you think Planned Parenthood should be shut down?

Republican Senators stabbed every American in the back with what they said about Christopher Columbus

36

Republicans have thrown in the towel.

They’re capitulating to the outrage mob at every turn.

And what these two Republican U.S. Senators just proposed will make you furious.

Columbus Day is observed on the second Monday in October, commemorating Christopher Columbus’ discovery of the New World.

Now the mob wants to erase Columbus’ achievements from the history books.

Rioters have toppled statues of Columbus nationwide. They see Christopher Columbus as an “evil colonizer” part of the oppressive patriarchy.

Even the city of Columbus, Ohio has taken down a Columbus statue, which only leads us to wonder if they’ll rename the entire town next.

Sadly, in the U.S. Senate, it’s Republicans James Lankford (R-OK) and Ron Johnson (R-WI) leading the charge to banish Columbus.

They’re backing a proposal to replace Columbus Day with Juneteenth.

Juneteenth is a day that celebrates the end of slavery. The abolition of slavery is certainly something worth celebrating.

But in their haste to appease Black Lives Matter activists, Republicans cavalierly took a shot at Americans.

Sen. Johnson stated, “I’m just saying let’s replace it with something. I chose Columbus Day just because it’s probably the most lightly celebrated and less disruptive to anybody’s schedule.”

Senator Johnson wouldn’t be here if Christopher Columbus didn’t set out on his brave voyage.

Columbus wasn’t perfect. There’s only one person in history that was.

But his achievements are worth honoring.

Our country is facing a “Year Zero” moment.

Cultural Marxists are toppling or defacing statues from Thomas Jefferson to George Washington, and even several statues of abolitionists.

They want to erase our history so they can re-write their own.

LeBron James made one move signaling “woke” culture is going to get worse

33

Far-left nonsense is becoming more and more inescapable these days.

It’s becoming increasingly obnoxious in the world of sports.

Now LeBron James announced one move that signals “woke” culture is about to get a lot worse.

“Woke” capitalism has become a plague on society.

One of the healthiest aspects of America was that personal politics didn’t matter in your daily routine.

However, leftists believe that everything is political, which is the nature of countries around the globe that are beset by political strife.

In certain countries, belonging to the wrong tribe or ethnic group could mean denial of basic services, or far, far, worse.

America largely conquered that divisive mentality, but the Left is doing everything it can to bring it back.

NBA superstar LeBron James is doing his part to reach into the dustbin of history and retrieve the idea of group discrimination.

James launched SpringHill Co., a new media company with $100 million investment from other wealthy businessmen.

According to a Bloomberg report, “[James and business partner Maverick Carter] describe it as a media company with an unapologetic agenda: a maker and distributor of all kinds of content that will give a voice to creators and consumers who’ve been pandered to, ignored, or underserved.”

This is code for leftist propaganda.

James openly campaigned for Hillary Clinton, constantly rips Donald Trump, attacked Drew Brees for saying he would stand for the anthem, among other political statements.

There’s no doubt James’ company will push the ascendant militant Left’s narrative that America is evil and racist and must be uprooted.

Earlier in his career, James said he wanted to be a “global icon.”

The easiest way to do that is to pander to the woke Left, which controls the media companies and institutions that give out awards and accolades.

James is playing the game, but it’s Average Joe who will suffer from this corrosive left-wing marriage.

Conservatives need to learn a lesson from James.

He and other left-wingers are willing to pour money into these causes to move the culture.

Meanwhile, people on the right are giving money to think-tanks that promote squishy Supreme Court justices like John Roberts.

Contributing to think-tanks is fine, but until conservatives seriously engage in the culture, dwindling electoral victories won’t matter.

Do conservatives need to fight for the culture by creating art?

Black Lives Matter just declared all-out war on the Catholic Church after what happened in St. Louis

97

For weeks, Black Lives Matter has been destroying American history.

But their hatred for America seems to extend even further.

And Black Lives Matter just declared all-out war on the Catholic Church after what happened in St. Louis.

Things got wild in St. Louis over the weekend.

The most notable event was on Sunday when two citizens in an upscale neighborhood had to hold off a mob of Black Lives Matter rioters in their neighborhood after they broke down a wrought iron gate and crossed into their private property.

But less than a mile from that home, another incident happened on Saturday, which shows just how much disdain they have for Americans.

A radical Muslim activist named Umar Lee announced a plan to remove a statue to French King Louis IX, who is a Catholic Saint, and the city’s namesake.

One of the most notable monuments in St. Louis is a statue to him, which sits atop a hill.

That statue was actually on the original flag of the city of St. Louis, making it perhaps the most notable monument besides the Arch.

After this call came to remove the statue, Catholics in the city announced their opposition and planned daily prayer events where they prayed the Rosary around the statue.

One of those events occurred on Saturday.

In response, Umar Lee announced a counter-rally, claiming that the Catholics praying were actually racist members of the Ku Klux Klan, a claim mirrored by officials in the St. Louis government with no evidence.

According to The Gateway Pundit, who advertised Saturday’s prayer rally, the mob quickly turned violent, harassing those praying with threats of violence and noisemakers to try to drown out their prayers.

The entire event was recorded on video:

Following the rally, a few Catholics stuck around to pray, and take down hateful chalk messages on the statue.

That’s when the mob turned especially violent, with Black Lives Matter radicals going on the attack, viciously assaulting one elderly man, and two others who tried to defend him.

So far no charges have been pressed on the main attacker, who local St. Louis news reports as being named as Terrence Page.

St. Louis officials are known to let violent rioters free, with their Circuit Attorney (chief prosecutor) Kim Gardner, who receives money from George Soros, letting them off without charges.
