The impression is being given, both in the USA and here in the UK, that the election is in the bag for Biden. Let’s hope and pray that this is not the case because it would have serious consequences for life across the world, including the UK. We are already experiencing Police State tactics here, and increasingly so; watch this video about the young English mother who was arrested – and is living under Bail conditions – for attending an anti-lockdown protest…
There is no question that we are seeing tyrannical governance in action today in various parts of the world, perhaps more so in the UK than in America. Trump apparently said at one of his many recent rallies that if he is returned to the White House he will be visiting foreign leaders to educate them about the truth about this virus (I paraphrase, but that is the sense of what I’m told he said at one of his rallies a day or so ago.) Fear of this virus, whether real or contrived, is being used to subject us to tyranny. That is now indisputable.
We need Donald Trump to be returned for a number of reasons, not least so that he can to continue his efforts to save unborn and newly born babies from being put to death. The latest news on that front is that Trump has issued a proclamation promoting adoption as an alternative to abortion. That he is pro-life and Biden is pro-death should suffice for any Christian to vote to return Trump to the White House.
In the case of a Biden victory, not only will the murder of unborn and newly born babies continue (Biden & Harris are unashamedly pro-abortion without limits, i.e. to include infanticide), but Amy Stewart won’t be the last victim of tyrannical State rule here in the UK. Not for nothing is the President of the USA called “leader of the free world”. Team Biden is not interested in “freedom” – he’s already promising to lockdown America (in the name of the virus, of course) if he were to win today’s election.
Without Trump in the White House, democracy and life itself will be – literally – endangered species… Why would any Catholic NOT vote for Trump? As one commentator wrote on the YouTube platform under a video promoting a Trump win buildings are not being boarded up in Washington DC for fear of having Trump Tweets thrown at them… The alternative to Trump is a vicious, violent Party which hates both democracy and human life. No Catholic may, in good conscience, vote for that. They must pray – and vote – for another 4 years in the White House for Donald J. Trump. And if they don’t like his tweets, tough! Actress, Kirstie Alley sums up that dilemma beautifully in the video at the top of this page: when the choice is between “rough and tough” or “snakes” there is no contest.
God bless America!
Just imagine, for a moment, the outcry if those anti-Catholic Democratic politicians had quizzed a Muslim, or the member of any other religion, in the way they put down Amy Coney Barrett due to her religious beliefs. Just imagine the outcry in the media. What is it about Catholics, that we take such hatred “on the chin”?
And why do Catholics in public office seek to allay the fears of our enemies by saying things to the effect that their religion won’t interfere with their professional obligations? No point in being a Catholic at all, if that is the case.
What else could Amy Coney Barrett have said in response to the question about her Faith and her work as a Judge? Perhaps point out that it could never be the case that true justice would be opposed to anything taught by Christ and His Catholic Church? Words to that effect? What, then?
Four months ago, I wrote a column titled “The Worldwide Lockdown May Be the Greatest Mistake in History.” I explained that “‘mistake’ and ‘evil’ are not synonyms. The lockdown is a mistake; the Holocaust, slavery, communism, fascism, etc., were evils. Massive mistakes are made by arrogant fools; massive evils are committed by evil people.”
Regarding the economic catastrophe in America and around the world — especially among the world’s poor who are dependent upon America and other first-world countries for their income through exports and tourism — I wrote, “It is panic and hysteria, not the coronavirus, that created this catastrophe.”
Unfortunately, I was right.
The world should have followed Sweden’s example. That country never locked down and has even kept children under 16 in school the entire time. As Reuters reported on July 15, the number of Swedish children between 1 and 19 years of age who have died of COVID-19 is zero. And the percentage of children who contracted the illness was the exact same in Sweden as it was in Finland, which locked down its schools.
Reuters reported that three separate studies, including one by UNICEF, “showed that Swedish children fared better than children in other countries during the pandemic, both in terms of education and mental health.”
For more than a month, Sweden has had almost no deaths from COVID-19 while the entire society remains open and almost no one wears masks. (In Holland, too, almost no one wears masks.) For all intents and purposes, the virus is over in Sweden.
I live in California, a state governed by that most dangerous of leaders: a fool with unlimited power. Despite the fact that California ranks 28th among the 50 states in deaths per million, Gov. Gavin Newsom has destroyed and continues to destroy tens of thousands of small businesses and untold numbers of livelihoods. His continuing to forbid — a half-year after the onset of the pandemic — indoor dining in restaurants is leading to a projected permanent closure of approximately 1 in every 3 restaurants in the state. The same catastrophic destruction will likely affect retail businesses and services such as hair and nail salons. But all this human tragedy — not to mention increased depression and suicides among the young and increased abuse of children and partners — means nothing to Newsom, to Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti or to the Los Angeles Times, whose editors and columnists continue to advocate for the lockdown while they receive their salaries.
And the American Alliance of Museums issued results from a survey on July 22, 2020, that warned 1 out of every 3 museums may shutter forever as funding sources and financial reserves run dry.
On Aug. 3, The Wall Street Journal wrote, “In March … There was broad public support for the prudent goals of preventing hospitals from being overwhelmed and buying scientists time to develop therapies.” But the left — the media and Democratic governors and mayors — immediately moved the goal posts to “bending the curve” and “saving one life,” enabling them to get away with destroying lives and livelihoods.
“Covid is over in Sweden. People have gone back to their normal lives and barely anyone is getting infected any more. I am willing to bet that the countries that have shut down completely will see rates spike when they open up. If that is the case, then there won’t have been any point in shutting down in the first place … Shutting down completely in order to decrease the total number of deaths only makes sense if you are willing to stay shut down until a vaccine is available. That could take years. No country is willing to wait that long.”
The lockdown is a crime. But even more upsetting is that it is supported by so many Americans. This country is unrecognizable to those of us who lived through the 1968-1970 pandemic, which killed, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 100,000 Americans — the 2020 equivalent of 170,000 Americans. Nothing shut down. Not one mask was worn.

Lockdown is no longer a mistake – it’s now a crime. I’m inclined to agree – big time. What about you?
And surely, if lockdowns are a crime, then someone has to be held accountable – but who? And what might be the consequences for those politicians who kept these lockdowns in place, and/or are reintroducing them on a whim, keeping us in a state of fear? Resignations galore? Prison? What then?
What, too, about those in positions of authority within the Church – the bishops who offered to close churches and those others in authority who were in a position to resist? These alleged men of God are enforcing the Government imposed restrictions on how we pray and worship God – many of them, to their eternal shame, doing so enthusiastically. Are they just as guilty as our political masters – or even more guilty?
Born in Budapest, Soros survived Nazi Germany–occupied Hungary and moved to the United Kingdom in 1947. He attended the London School of Economics, graduating with a bachelor’s, then obtaining a master’s, and eventually a Doctor of Philosophy. Soros began his business career by taking various jobs at merchant banks in the United Kingdom and then the United States, before starting his first hedge fund, Double Eagle, in 1969. Profits from his first fund furnished the seed money to start Soros Fund Management, his second hedge fund, in 1970. Double Eagle was renamed to Quantum Fund and was the principal firm Soros advised. At its founding, Quantum Fund had $12 million in assets under management, and as of 2011 it had $25 billion, the majority of Soros’s overall net worth.
Soros is known as “The Man Who Broke the Bank of England” because of his short sale of US$10 billion worth of pounds sterling, which made him a profit of $1 billion during the 1992 Black Wednesday UK currency crisis. Based on his early studies of philosophy, Soros formulated an application of Karl Popper‘s General Theory of Reflexivity to capital markets, which he claims renders a clear picture of asset bubbles and fundamental/market value of securities, as well as value discrepancies used for shorting and swapping stocks.
Soros is a well-known supporter of progressive and liberal political causes, to which he dispenses donations through his foundation, the Open Society Foundations. Between 1979 and 2011, he donated more than $11 billion to various philanthropic causes; by 2017, his donations “on civil initiatives to reduce poverty and increase transparency, and on scholarships and universities around the world” totaled $12 b…
On Soros’s 90th birthday (12 August, 2020), American commentator Bill Reilly opines that he, Soros, has done more damage to the USA than any other person or group…
Nigel Farage questions Soros’s links to the European Union…
This thread is posted following conversations with people here in Scotland who have never heard of George Soros. These are people who consider themselves to be reasonably well informed but had no idea of the extent of this one man’s influence. The subject arose during a brief discussion about the riots in America. The possibility that these riots and “protests” were paid for by this one elderly gentleman was breaking news to these politically aware Scots – never mind his funding of abortion etc. So, how many others know nothing about this man? How many others have no idea that he is using his money to re-shape society – or in the plan set out at the January 2019 World Economic Forum, to “reset the world“?
Should this wealthy man be allowed to use his money to thwart the USA election in November, because that’s what he seems to have in mind. Trump was falsely accused of colluding with Russia to win the 2016 election. Should Soros be allowed to collude with the Democrats and/or whoever else, to prevent Trump winning a second term? In the popular parlance of cancel culture, we need to debate whether or not George Soros should be cancelled… I vote “aye”!
Out and about this morning, I marvelled – as I always do these days – at the tangible fear around me. Nobody seems to notice the contradictions. I saw three people in a shop, all wearing masks, all standing shoulder to shoulder chatting right beside a “social distancing, keep two metres apart” sign 😀 Then a member of staff, wearing a perspex mask, licked her finger again and again, in order to separate plastic bags… It would be hilarious were it not so serious. The above video was made, I think I’m right in saying, just before lockdown, so that particular fear (of sickness and death) is not included in the possible reasons for unhappiness among young people. Whatever, the following quote from Mark Twain is perhaps why there is so much unhappiness around, and not just among the young. How many people spend any time investigating the “why”? Goodness, according to the several conversations I’ve had today, nobody is spending time investigating the “why” for allowing the Government to control us to the point where they can tell us what to wear. Over to you!
After watching the above video, you may feel that if Donald Trump, for all his faults, is not re-elected in November, then we can well and truly – all of us in the western world – say “goodbye” to our civil and religious liberty for the foreseeable future.
Tucker’s point that what we are witnessing is not really chaos – that the rioting and apparent chaos is happening by design, should strike a chord with us all. It is certainly by design, and I’m not thinking of the nearest famous fashion icon. What is going on right now in the USA and to a lesser extent (so far) here in the UK, is by satanic design.
So, what will the immediate future hold, do we think, if Joe Biden is elected President in November? After all, he is a Catholic – at least, to be a tad more precise, he identifies as a Catholic… So, should we be supporting “Sleepy Joe”?
Q first appeared in October 2017 on an anonymous online forum called 4Chan, posting messages that implied top-clearance knowledge of upcoming events. More than 3,000 messages later, Q has created a disturbing, multi-faceted portrait of a global crime syndicate that operates with impunity. Q’s followers in the QAnon community faithfully analyze every detail of Q’s drops, which are compiled here and here.
The mainstream media has published hundreds of articles attacking Q as an insane rightwing conspiracy, particularly after President Trump seemed to publicly confirm his connection to it. At a North Carolina rally in 2019, Trump made a point of drawing attention to a baby wearing a onesie with a big Q.
If you’re unfamiliar with Q or only know it through the media’s attacks, I’d like to provide a brief introduction to this extraordinary phenomenon. I’ve followed Q since the first drop, and I’ve grown increasingly impressed by the accuracy, breadth and depth of Q’s messages. Q followers were prepared long in advance for the easing of hostilities with North Korea, the deflation of the mullahs of Iran, and the discovery of Ukraine as a hotbed of corruption for American politicians. They knew a great deal about Jeffrey Epstein’s activities before the public did and anticipate even more shocking revelations to come. As Q likes to say, “Future proves past.” As Q’s predictions come true, they lend retroactive credibility to the entire enterprise.
Q’s followers believe that Q is a military intelligence operation, the first of its kind, whose goal is to provide the public with secret information. Many Q followers think the Q team was founded by Admiral Michael Rogers, the former Director of the National Security Agency and former Commander of US Cyber Command. Some suspect that Dan Scavino, White House Director of Social Media, is part of the team, because the high quality of Q’s writing has the luster of a communications expert.
Q is a new weapon in the game of information warfare, bypassing a hostile media and corrupt government to communicate directly with the public. Think of Q as a companion to Trump’s twitter. Whereas Trump communicates bluntly and directly, Q is cryptic, sly and subtle, offering only clues that beg for context and connection.
Here’s the way it works: Q posts messages (also known as “drops” or “crumbs”) on an anonymous online forum, which are discussed, analyzed, and critiqued by the board’s inhabitants. (The forum has changed a few times after massive online attacks.) Hundreds of social media accounts then spread Q’s latest posting to worldwide followers who share their research, analysis, and interpretations of Q’s latest information…
The “fake news” decried by President Trump is losing credibility and audience by the day. Q has exposed the 4 A.M. drops that provide the daily talking points to media personnel, so they can all parrot the same propaganda. Q has also named various journalists whom he says take bribes.
[It is painful to learn that] “those you trust the most” (in Q’s phrase) are deceiving you. Beloved celebrities, religious leaders, doctors, educators, innovators, and do-gooders are all in on the hoax…
[Deborah Franklin, author of above article in The American Thinker lists various sayings of Q including the following…]
We know what happens in the end. God wins. Many times, Q has asked us to pray. He’s quoted the famous Biblical lines of Ephesians 6:12, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” We’re living through monumental times. It’s comforting that Q believes that if we work together, God wins. End of extracts… Note: Deborah Franklin is the pen name of a writer who fears professional retribution. Source
So, with “religious leaders” listed among those who are “in on the hoax”, what is the likelihood that Pope Francis might be implicated in the Q phenomenon? Remember, as one commentator on YouTube notes: The term “conspiracy theories” was invented by the CIA in order to make people who question the JFK assassination look foolish. What is really foolish is to believe that there are no conspiracies.
Personally, I don’t know what to think about the Q phenomenon – what do YOU think?
We discussed the subject of gun ownership in the USA back in 2015 here
Watching the news reports over this weekend, of the mass shootings in two American towns, it is unfathomable to many of us that people of faith support, and even advocate, gun ownership – perhaps because it has never been the culture here in the UK. However, in America, it is considered a very important constitutional right to bear arms. Here’s the young American Jewish commentator, Ben Shapiro, debating the issue with Piers Morgan in 2017…
We know that the gun lobby, big guns business (so to speak), makes it very difficult for politicians to propose a ban on gun ownership, never mind the Second Amendment right to bear arms, cherished by the American people. My own gut feeling is that, with the extent of the killing sprees now taking place almost routinely across the USA, a President – preparing for possible re-election – who boldly proposed doing whatever is reasonably possible to deal with the problem of widespread gun ownership, would be onto a winner. Surely, the sheer number of deaths caused this weekend alone, in two different parts of the United States, would be sufficient to cause a change in the American mindset about the Second Amendment?
Personally, I’d like to see a courageous President move to end widespread gun ownership, by whatever constitutional means are available, and if you agree, let’s hear it. But if you disagree (and I can already see some of our American bloggers bristling with indignation 😀 ) then please suggest your preferred solution – but make it one that would truly make a difference…
Final thought: I have a young (teenage) relative who says he would dearly love to move to the USA when he’s finished his education. I keep reminding him of the two things that would be very different if he did so; one, the gun culture (don’t get impatient – with anyone! If the bus is late, so be it! If that hamburger is cold, smile at the waiter and tip him/her anyway!) And the second – well, that’s irrelevant to the present discussion, so I’ll leave that hanging there for another day 😀
For the purposes of this conversation, please, simply answer the questions in the headline – can these massacres be prevented? And if so, how?
The above video interview dates from President Trump’s previous visit to the UK when the same ugly baby balloon image of him was permitted that will be flown in London during this week’s visit. It’s a disgrace. It’s insulting, as is his description of the President as a “fascist“. One thought which crosses my mind is whether a Christian Mayor would have been so unkind, whatever his political views. Now, before I’m arrested for “hate speech” let me make my position clear; just try it – if anyone is guilty of hate speech and inciting to hatred, it is, in my considered view, Sadiq Khan. And let me add, by way of emphasising that thought which crossed my mind, I sincerely hope that no Christian Mayor of London (or anywhere else for that matter) would be so cruelly unkind in his remarks and in permitting such an insulting image to be publicly displayed during such an important state visit. I know it’s completely unfashionable to even hint at anything negative in any non-Christian religion but that’s too bad. I’m hinting. In Christianity, we are taught to love even our enemies, to “do good to those who persecute you” – I’m wondering if there is anything similar is Islamic teaching that should have prevented Khan from being so nasty to Donald Trump? Obviously, as a public figure, the President is not above criticism, but nasty personal remarks and caricatures?
Headlines today scream that it is Trump who is insulting Khan! Laughable. As it is laughable that Trump is intervening in UK elections by suggesting Boris Johnson for PM. Having watched the interview, I am appalled at the dishonesty. The political editor of The Sun ASKED Donald Trump for his opinion on various people including Boris, so it is entirely disingenuous to give the impression that the President pushed for any particular candidate in the leadership race. He simply answered a question. End of.
No wonder Donald Trump despises the mainstream media. Me, too. What about you? IS Sadiq Khan guilty of inciting hatred against the President of the United States of America?
