Fauci: ‘It’s Still Not OK’ to Eat or Drink Indoors Even if You’re Vaccinated

White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci on Sunday advised people who have been vaccinated for COVID-19 to hold off on congregating indoors to eat or drink.

Silent Majority No More | The Aquila Report

Culture has shifted from embracing a Judeo-Christian worldview to one that repudiates every traditional expression related to biblical principles. Basic ideas regarding anthropology—gender, race, ethics—now face challenges for validity with each passing news cycle. The result has witnessed a retreat for many Christians. Rather than being salt and light, many now believe silence is the most loving response. To those Christians, Scripture would seem to instruct us to live quiet and peaceable lives (1 Thess. 4:11). This is true. We are instructed to live quietly and to mind our own affairs as believers in Christ. This truth serves the same purpose as the Scripture passages that instruct believers to love one another: “that they may know you are my disciples” (John 13:35). Nevertheless, this is not an instruction to neglect being salt and light to a culture in need of the gospel of Christ.

Christians are never to be silent about what we believe. We have been commanded in Scripture to be salt and light (Matt. 5:13–16). The previous verse (v. 12) is clear: we are to rejoice and be glad even in the face of persecution. This truth presupposes that we will be attacked by others as we declare truth. As salt, we are a preservative for goodness. Salt was a protectant against putrefaction. What is clear from this example is that as members of the kingdom, we are responsible to stand against the impurity of culture. In this example, Jesus was declaring the sanctifying saltiness of the believer. In the same way that a believing wife sanctifies her unbelieving husband (1 Cor. 7:14), believers are to have a sanctifying impact on culture through righteousness.

Jesus also declares that we are light. We are to be “a city set on a hill” that cannot be hidden. In the Old Testament, we find that Israel was to be the “light of the nations” (Isa. 42:6). Jesus would declare that He indeed is the “light of the world” (John 8:12). However, this same verse points to the fact that as followers of Christ, “we will no longer walk in darkness, but we will have the light of life” (v. 12). As those who have the light of life, we are no longer to fellowship with “fruitless deeds of darkness, but instead, expose them” (Eph. 5:11). As both salt and light, we have only the option to maintain a bold standard for truth in a darkening and decadent world.

In his speech “Vision for America” Ronald Reagan would appeal to this same passage in Matthew 5:14 and declare that America was to be a “shining city on a hill.” This term, however, is reserved for the Christian, not a Christian nation. In our current culture, Christian has come to mean someone who was born in America. As a result, we have witnessed an impotent church culture that has enjoyed the fruits of the gospel apart from being closely tied to the fight for the gospel. Cultural Christianity, particularly in America, has embraced prosperity while abandoning any notion of Christian persecution.

Second, pragmatism has invaded church culture to such a degree that we have abandoned the notion of an offense in the gospel we preach. Scripture is clear that we are to honor Christ above culture. We are instructed to “honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect” (1 Peter 3:15).

Japan Comes Clean, Admits Dumping Fukushima Radioactive Water In Pacific Ocean Is Now “Unavoidable” | ZeroHedge

Article Image

While Japan last month marked the 10th anniversary of the devastating 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami with solemn ceremonies, the government has also been stressing the successes of its recovery efforts in the country’s northeast.

In truth, however, the country is still coping with the aftermath of the Fukushima Daiichi disaster, which has already cost Japan trillions of yen and whose exclusion zone will require up to 40 more years to fully rehabilitate.

And with contaminated water continuing to build up at the ruined Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga says that the government must finally begin dumping it into the Pacific Ocean.

With nuclear waste and fuel rods still contaminating the area, over one million tons of radioactive waste water continue to seep from the facility, according to The Japan Times, forcing authorities into what Suga describes as the “unavoidable” position of having to dump the water.

Officials claim that the water would be purified to the maximum extent possible, but environmentalist groups like Greenpeace warn that the water contains hazardous material that could damage human DNA and the health of marine life.

Fishermen also fear that consumers will refuse to buy fish caught in contaminated waters, worsening their plight amid a restriction of imports from Fukushima prefecture imposed by 15 countries and regions.

Regardless, authorities argue they must deal with the cards that have been dealt.

WATCH: Christians tear down fences around shuttered Canadian church, government sends in 200 riot police – Conservative Review

Hundreds of Canadian Christians gathered on Sunday at the GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta. Government officials shut down the church for allegedly violating public COVID-19 health orders. Authorities erected a chain-link fence to prevent the house of worship from reopening last week. On Sunday, worshippers tore down the barricade, but were quickly met by a large contingent of riot police. 

Alberta Health Services physically closed the GraceLife Church, preventing access to the building. AHS said the church would remain closed until the GraceLife Church “can demonstrate the ability to comply with Alberta’s chief medical officer of health’s restrictions.” The Royal Canadian Mounted Police even closed off the access roads in front of the church to the public.

The AHS claimed it had received 105 complaints from the public about the GraceLife Church between July 10 and April 6. The church was shut down in January for breaching public health guidelines that limit worship services to 15% of capacity. The church was also accused of not ensuring that people wore face masks during religious services and for not practicing proper physical distancing.

In February, GraceLife’s Pastor James Coates was charged violating COVID-19 public health orders. Coates spent 35 days in custody before pleading guilty to a charge of breaching bail and was fined $1,500. He returned to the pulpit on March 28.

Coates’ attorney, John Carpay, said the government’s enforcement was excessive. 

“I’m very disappointed to see this kind of draconian and aggressive enforcement of health orders when these health orders themselves are being challenged in court,” Carpay told CBC News. “It shows a very aggressive government that is not answering questions about its policies, but wants to push its weight around and try and make an example out of GraceLife Church.”

WTH Is This? Over 100 Top Corporate CEOs Join First-of-its-kind Call to Denounce Voter ID Laws | The Gateway Pundit

CEOs from several top 100 corporations joined the first-of-its-kind call this weekend to discuss how to respond to proposed changes in state voting laws. 

At issue was the recent Georgia voting law signed by Governor Kemp that makes it a requirement for voters to show a photo ID to vote.

Over 70% of Americans, including black Americans, support voter ID laws.

Participants included top leaders of airlines, media, law, investment.

Every country in the world — besides the US — requires a photo ID or similar document to vote.

Russia Has Moved Missiles That Can Carry Nuclear Warheads Into The Conflict Zone With Ukraine — The Economic Collapse

How close can Russia and Ukraine come to war without actually going over the precipice?  Over the weekend, more forces on both sides continued to pour into the conflict zone.  And on the line of separation in eastern Ukraine, there are regular reports of gunfire and shelling.  At this point, there are no negotiations on the horizon, and one false move could easily spark an all-out war.  In fact, a Kremlin spokesperson is warning that we could soon see “full-scale combat operations”

Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov on Thursday said the situation in eastern Ukraine was ‘very unstable’ and warned it risked leading to ‘full-scale combat operations.’

As Kiev warned it could be ‘provoked’ by Russia’s aggression, several Western nations have voiced fears that Russian President Vladimir Putin’s move could trigger an all-out war, which could drag Nato allies, including Britain, into the conflict.

By rushing so many forces to the conflict zone, the Russians have prepared themselves to be ready for any scenario that may unfold.

According to one British news source, Russia now has “close to 100,000 troops” in the region…

The Russia-Ukraine crisis could explode into all-out war within days after Moscow amassed close to 100,000 troops at the flashpoint border, it was feared last night.

Senior Ukraine military sources fear Moscow’s war-planners may have wrong-footed Kiev by being far more battle-ready for a major land and sea attack than previously suspected.

If a full-blown war does break out, the Ukrainian military will be no match for the Russian military.

The Ukrainians would literally beg NATO for help, and Joe Biden has already promised “unwavering support” for the regime in Kiev.

Since the end of the Cold War, the U.S. and Russia have never been closer to war than they are right now, and that is why this crisis is far more important than most Americans realize.

Within the last 24 hours, there has been quite a bit more activity along the line of separation.  The following is an English translation of a report that was posted on the official website of the Ukrainian military

During the past 24 hours, on April 10, in the area of ​​the Joint Forces operation, the armed forces of the Russian Federation violated the ceasefire 10 times, including 9 shellings of Ukrainian defenders and 1 flight of an enemy UAV crossing the line of demarcation.

In particular, in the area of ​​responsibility of the operational and tactical group “East”, the Russian occupation forces fired at our positions near the village of PYSCHEVYK with 82 mm mortars, anti-tank and hand-held anti-tank grenade launchers prohibited by the Minsk agreements. In the suburbs of the villages of PISKY and SHYROKYNE, the enemy opened fire with small arms, and near AVDIYIVKA and KAMYANKA – with grenade launchers of various systems.

In the area of ​​responsibility of the operational and tactical group “North”, near the village of MAYORSKE, armed formations of the Russian Federation fired at the positions of Ukrainian defenders with hand-held anti-tank and grenade launchers.

Near the village of ZOLOTE-3, the enemy opened fire with automatic machine grenade launchers, large-caliber machine guns and small arms.

Of course the Ukrainians don’t always disclose when they fire upon forces on the other side, and that has been happening on numerous occasions as well.

This sort of low level fighting is only a concern because it could potentially lead to a much larger conflict.

And in preparation for such a conflict, the Russians have been moving some very serious hardware into the region.

For example, it is being reported that the Russians have moved at least six “city destroyers” into the conflict zone…

At least six 2S4 Tyulpan self-propelled mortars – capable of firing warheads 12 miles – were filmed on flat-bed trains. Dubbed the ‘city destroyer’, the weapon’s devastating power has demolished strongholds from Chechnya to Afghanistan.

Even more importantly, we are being told that the Russians have been deploying Iskander missile systems close to Ukraine

Open-source intelligence specialist at Janes Thomas Bullock identified Russian Iskander missile systems that have moved or are moving to the Ukrainian area of operations since late March through open-source intelligence.

Thomas Bullock posted a Janes article from 8 April that said he identified the deployment of Iskander short-range ballistic missile systems, likely belonging to the 119 Missile Brigade, to Voronezh from the Sverdlovsk region.

This is a sign that the Russians are definitely not messing around.

Iskander missile systems can be used to deliver conventional payloads, but they are also designed to carry nuclear warheads

Russian official sources claim that the R-500 missile carries a conventional 500 kg warhead or nuclear warhead with a yield of around 10-50 kT. It is likely that there are several different conventional warheads, including cluster, fuel-air explosive, and bunker-busting. The missile can overcome enemy air defense systems while offering high-probability of failure-free operation in countermeasures environments. It has a target accuracy of 5m to 7m and operates even in fog or low visibility.

If push came to shove, the Russians would not hesitate to use tactical nukes if they felt it was necessary.

We should all carefully monitor the situation in Ukraine, because this really does have the potential to spark World War 3.

Of course there are two other potential conflicts that could also cause global war to erupt.

China has been eyeing a potential invasion of Taiwan for quite some time now.  If China decides to actually pull the trigger, the U.S. and China would immediately be at a state of war.

Also, it appears to be just a matter of time before Israel and Iran go to war.  On Sunday, Iranian officials announced that the Natanz nuclear facility “was hit by a ‘terrorist” attack”

Iran’s Natanz nuclear facility was hit by a “terrorist” attack on Sunday, the country’s nuclear chief said, hours after reports of an electrical “accident” – and a day after new uranium enrichment centrifuges were started up.

Iran reserves the right to “take action” against those behind the incident at the Islamic Republic’s nuclear facility in Natanz, the head of the nation’s Atomic Energy Organization, Ali Akbar Salehi, told state TV on Sunday.

He called the incident at the plant an act of “nuclear terrorism.”

Iran’s nuclear program has been steadily moving forward, and Israel had made it abundantly clear that it will never allow the Iranians to develop their own nuclear weapons.

The clock is ticking, and there will be war at some point.

So which flashpoint will erupt first?

I don’t know, but the red horse is getting ready to ride, and things could start to spiral out of control at any time.

I believe that we will be the generation that will experience World War 3, and it truly will be too horrible for words.

April 11 Evening Quotes of The Day

Making Ourselves Our Rule Is Atheism
Nehemiah 9:26; Daniel 4:29–30; Romans 1:30–32; 2 Timothy 3:2; Revelation 18:7

To make ourselves our own rule, and the object of our chiefest love, is atheism. If self-denial be the greatest part of godliness, the great letter in the alphabet of religion, self-love is the great letter in the alphabet of practical atheism.

Pleased with Our Righteousness Until We Look to God
Luke 18:9; Philippians 3:9

So long as we do not look beyond the earth, we are quite pleased with our own righteousness, wisdom, and virtue; we address ourselves in the most flattering terms, and seem only less than demigods. But should we once begin to raise our thoughts to God, and reflect what kind of Being he is, and how absolute the perfection of that righteousness, and wisdom, and virtue, to which, as a standard, we are bound to be conformed, what formerly delighted us by its false show of righteousness will become polluted with the greatest iniquity; what strangely imposed upon us under the name of wisdom will disgust by its extreme folly; and what presented the appearance of virtuous energy will be condemned as the most miserable impotence. So far are those qualities in us, which seem most perfect, from corresponding to the divine purity.

April 11 Evening Verse of The Day

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is img_0650-1.jpg

37:17 Arms often refer to power (89:10), so breaking one’s arm means to render someone powerless (10:15; Jb 38:15; Jr 48:25; Ezk 30:21).[1]

37:17 the arms of the wicked shall be broken This refers symbolically to the destruction of strength (Jer 48:25).[2]

37:17 the arms of the wicked will be broken. Their members will be shattered for grabbing and getting wealth (v. 16b). Cf. Job 38:15; Ps 10:15; Jer 48:25; Eze 30:21.[3]

17. “For the arms of the wicked shall be broken.” Their power to do mischief shall be effectually taken away, for the arms which they lifted up against God shall be crushed even to the bone. God often makes implacable men incapable men. What is a more contemptible sight than toothless malice, armless malevolence! “But the Lord upholdeth the righteous.” Their cause and course shall be safe, for they are in good keeping. The sword of two edges smites the wicked and defends the just.[4]

17 “Power” is an idiomatic rendering of זְרוֹעוֹת (zerôʿôt, “arms”). The arms—symbolic of strength (cf. 10:15)—by which the poor have been oppressed will be broken. Truly this is a moving picture of the strength of the Lord and his just acts against the wicked. He “supports” or “upholds” the limbs of the weak (v. 24; Isa 40:29).[5]

6 Verses When You need to be Brave — Daily Devotionals by Thoughts about God

To act bravely is to meet or face something with courage; to act with courage is to make the choice to proceed with confidence, despite fear, adversity, intimidation, or feeling uncomfortable or judged.

Being brave doesn’t mean the threat is gone, it means we don’t let it stop us.

Having courage doesn’t mean the next step will be easy, it means we move forward anyway.

Following Jesus means we can draw from His unending strength and courage, and not try to rely on the amount of courage we can muster up ourselves.

When God told Joshua to be strong and courageous as he led the Israelites, He planned for Joshua to rely on Him. If Joshua had decided that he was brave enough without God, the Israelites never would have made it to the Promised Land.

Joshua was brave because He trusted God.

Just like Joshua, God makes us brave not because of who we are, but because of who He is.

6 Scripture Verses for When You Need to Be Brave

Joshua 1:9 NIV

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Deuteronomy 31:6 NLT

So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the Lord your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.”

Psalm 27:13-14 NLT

Yet I am confident I will see the Lord’s goodness while I am here in the land of the living. Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.

Psalm 31:24 VOICE

Be strong, and live courageously, all of you who set your hope in the Eternal!

Daniel 10:18-19 MEV

Then again, the one having the appearance of a man came and touched me, and he strengthened me. He said, “O man, greatly beloved, do not fear. Peace be unto you. Be strong and courageous!” When he spoke to me, I was strengthened and said, “Let my lord speak, for you have strengthened me.”

2 Chronicles 15:7 NLT

But as for you, be strong and courageous, for your work will be rewarded.”

6 Verses When You need to be Brave — Daily Devotionals by Thoughts about God

The Power of Consistency — Daily Devotionals by Thoughts about God

Read: Daniel 6 NIV


We live in a noncommittal world, where perseverance is all too rare.

If a job is difficult or boring, people often think, Why not find another one? Or when a marriage becomes unhappy, many wonder, Should I be with someone else?

Sadly, this mindset is also found among believers. At the first sign of conflict, some Christians hop to another church instead of working through difficulties with their local body of believers. And when it comes to our personal walk of faith, many of us struggle to maintain a consistent quiet time with the Lord.

Daniel was a man of steadfast loyalty. Not even the awareness that he could be killed interfered with his practice of praying three times a day. Such commitment to the Lord was noted by others. Jealous officers and governors used Daniel’s consistency to trap him, but the king made a remarkable statement:

Your God whom you constantly serve will Himself deliver you” (Daniel 6:16).

Apparently, he believed Daniel’s devotion would be the key to the young man’s deliverance

Daniel’s victory in the lion’s den led to great influence, as it inspired the king’s decree to worship the Lord. Have you considered that the Lord was able to use him because of his unwavering obedience and worship? Imagine what God can do with you when you also commit yourself to Him.

Inside the US government’s top-secret bioweapons lab | Business Insider

  • Dugway Proving Ground tests and stores some of the deadliest chemical and biological agents on Earth.
  • The facility, which opened in 1942, covers about 800,000 acres – larger than the state of Rhode Island.
  • Past experiments include weaponized mosquitoes and fleas, as well as tests with deadly diseases such as anthrax.
  • See more stories on Insider’s business page.

Following is a transcript of the video.

Narrator: In 1968, about 6,000 sheep died near this government facility. They were poisoned by a chemical weapon named VX.

The US hasn’t been known to actively use VX in combat. In fact, it’s begun destroying its stockpile of chemical munitions as part of a UN treaty. But it’s just one of many strange and secretive experiments that happened within these walls. Experiments on sheep, mosquitoes, and even civilians.

About 85 miles southwest of Salt Lake City is the US government’s top-secret bioweapons lab. It’s called the Dugway Proving Ground. The 77-year-old facility covers about 800,000 acres. That’s just a little larger than the entire state of Rhode Island. And it tests some of the deadliest chemical, biological, radiological, and explosive hazards on Earth.

Less famous than Area 51, Dugway dates all the way back to 1942. Right in the middle of World War II.

Clip: The decisive battle of war has begun.

Narrator: The government needed a large area to test powerful weapons, eventually settling on this stretch of land in the Utah desert. Back then, the site was used to test everything from chemical sprays and flamethrowers to various antidotes and protective equipment, and even fire-bombing.

After World War II, Dugway mostly shut down. Until the Korean War began in 1950. That’s when the proving ground turned into what it is today: a permanent military base. In Dugway’s first few decades, the base worked mostly on offensive weaponry: biological and chemical munitions designed to directly attack enemies.

Clip: Sampling devices, positioned throughout the test area, yield valuable information to chemical core researchers.

Narrator: The 1950s, for example, saw the launch of Operation Big Itch, an experiment that was testing weaponized fleas. The fleas weren’t infected with any type of disease or agent, but experimenters were working with thousands of them. And the fleas were dropped in cluster bombs, to gauge if they would survive the fall from an airplane. And this was only part one. Dugway launched a second experiment, called Project Bellwether, in the 1960s. Only this time, mosquitoes were injected with inert diseases, inert bacteria, and inert viruses. But get this: Those mosquitoes were released upon several groups of human volunteers, who were bitten again and again during the trials.

And there are records dating back to the late 1950s, which describe experiments that used infected mosquitoes. And those are just two experiments known to the public. Exactly what goes on at Dugway is, well, pretty unclear. And that’s not by accident.

The area is intensely guarded. Everything that comes in and out is carefully monitored, guards are on constant patrol and actively armed, and the perimeter is lined with tall, barbed-wire fencing. There are even signs that authorize “deadly force” when necessary.

Since the 1940s, officials say operations have shifted from offensive to defensive tactics. Case in point, most of the current known work prepares agents to defend against potential biological and chemical attacks. For example, a multitude of training programs are held on-site for the armed forces.

Here’s one in which Army Reserve soldiers are tasked with checking the radiation levels of artillery rounds. And here’s another where soldiers were tasked with identifying substances in a simulated chemical lab.

Dugway’s main operations include the “BRAUCH” training facility, constructed from various shipping containers. It simulates underground environments for military training. There are also various buildings and rooms that serve specific purposes. Like the decontamination testing chamber, the wind-tunnel testing room, and the material test facility.

But perhaps the most interesting room of all is this: the Smartman Laboratory facility, which houses the Smartman dummy, a model that’s used to simulate human contact with chemical agents, including the infamous VX nerve agent. Specifically, the Smartman helps the lab develop more effective individual protection respiratory equipment,- essentially, gas masks and the like.

A variety of chemists, chemical analysts, and technicians work on-site. And the use of airtight chambers and gas masks is not only common, but mandatory. Despite all of this dangerous experimentation, the work done at Dugway hasn’t always been properly contained.

Remember that sheep incident? That marked the start of a worrisome track record. It happened when overhead planes spewed out the nerve agent into the wind, accidentally sending it into nearby farmland in Skull Valley. Within the next couple of days, farmers found thousands of sheep dead in their fields. The Army compensated the farmers and lent them bulldozers to bury the sheep. But the accident sparked a whole debate on the use of chemical weapons in warfare.

Adding on to these questionable practices, a 1994 Senate hearing on veterans’ health focused specifically on Dugway veterans and civilians. A report found that people at Dugway were exposed to biological and chemical simulants believed to be safe at the time, but that the Army had later stopped using many of them because “they realized they were not as safe as previously believed.”

One veteran, who was accidentally sprayed in the face with the chemical DMMP in 1984, found himself wheezing and coughing the next day – symptoms that ended up lasting several weeks. Despite this, he was given only cough medicine and antibiotics by the Dugway Army Hospital. The Dugway Safety Office assured him that the chemical was safe. But by 1988, officials at Dugway had reevaluated the simulant’s danger and were concerned it could cause cancer and kidney damage.

In 2011, the facility slipped up again: It went on lockdown after workers lost a vial containing the VX nerve agent. Nobody was permitted to enter or exit the facility, not even the employees.

And in 2016, the CDC and the Department of Defense launched a major investigation when a review team found that Dugway had been operating dangerously for several years without the government’s knowledge. USA Today reported “egregious failures” by the facility’s leadership and staff. The reports singled out the head colonel in command at Dugway, Brig. Gen. William King.

The Army’s accountability investigation recognized King as unqualified, lacking the education and training to effectively oversee biosafety procedures crucial to Dugway’s operation. The report admonished him, saying he “repeatedly deflected blame” and “minimized the severity of incidents.” It even says King “fails to recognize” how serious the incidents truly were. And how serious were the incidents, exactly? Well, under King’s command, the facility mistakenly shipped live anthrax to other labs. And not just once, but multiple times. For over a decade.

That same report revealed that workers had been regularly and deliberately manipulating data in important records. Records meant to verify that pathogens being transported elsewhere were killed and safe for researchers to handle without protective gear. Still, the facility’s shady past, secretive operations, and intense surveillance have captured the attention, and skepticism, of some closer observers, including several conspiracy-theorist groups.

There are suggestions that the facility is the “new Area 51.” And the local community has raised their own questions about the facility’s operations. Dugway was even featured in an episode of The History Channel’s “UFO Hunters,” in which local residents and UFO watchers were interviewed and footage from the area was examined. It’s hard not to wonder, when you live in close proximity to such a restricted landscape.

Despite these theories, Dugway has expressed a desire to be “more transparent.” And representatives have said the facility wants to be “more a part of the local community” by better informing citizens about what exactly goes on there. So far, they’ve delivered some on that. The facility has its own events page, which lists several events open to the general public and the local Utah community. This year, they’re hosting a trail race on the facility grounds.

Certainly, today’s Dugway is a far cry from the 1940s Dugway, which was entirely closed off to the public. But despite the shift in the level of secrecy, much of Dugway’s testing remains classified, preserving the skepticism and mysteriousness surrounding the facility.

Sunday Talks, Jim Jordan Discusses His Border Visit and Being Forbidden From Documenting Crisis – ANALYSIS: A Part of The Crisis Story Everyone is Missing | The Last Refuge

The Truth Has No Agenda…

Ohio Representative Jim Jordan appears with Maria Bartiromo to discuss his visit to the U.S-Mexico border and what he personally witnessed.  Jim Jordan outlines how the JoeBama administration is blocking people from documenting the scale of the crisis and concludes the resulting influx is exactly what the administration wants.

.

ANALYSIS –  Many people (conservative media and politicians specifically) are misinterpreting the removal of the Biden administration’s Southern Border coordinator, Roberta Jacobson, from office.  Jacobson was not removed from her position for being ineffective, her removal was announced because her goal was successfully accomplished.  [It is frustrating to read THIS STUFF]

Let me be clear… Roberta Jacobson was put into position in January by those in control of the Biden administration specifically to coordinate this mass migration influx.  Her mission was to create the crisis, not to prevent it.  She was put into place to trigger the mass migration.  How do we know this?….

When Roberta Jacobson was Ambassador to Mexico she was working against the policy of the Trump administration.  She was running a covert effort to pipeline Central American immigrants through Mexico into the United States.  Yes, Roberta Jacobson was part of the trafficking network; that is why she was removed from her position in March 2018…  President Trump found out Roberta Jacobson was working with far-left immigration groups against his administration.

When Trump eventually found out what Jacobson was doing in Mexico, he quickly dispatched Jared Kushner to meet with Mexican officials and outline that Jacobson did not represent President Trump and she was fired.  [Remember, this was before AMLO was elected]

 

FLASHBACK MARCH 2018 –  Jared Kushner was in Mexico Wednesday to repair relations with the United States’ southern neighbor and key trading partner after a tense phone call between Presidents Donald Trump and Enrique Pena Nieto ended recently with the Mexican leader’s canceling a planned visit to America.

But Kushner, Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law who had no government or diplomatic experience before taking office …  has been criticized for not including the outgoing U.S. ambassador in his meetings.

[…] After Wednesday’s meetings, however, it appeared there had been little progress in rescheduling. Mexican officials say both sides agreed that a future meeting will depend on how much progress is made on other issues, including NAFTA, migration, economic cooperation, and security, which would include Trump’s proposal for a border wall.

[…] U.S. Ambassador Roberta Jacobson, a 30-year veteran of U.S.-Latin America policy and top diplomat who has announced her resignation, was not in either of Kushner’s meetings with Videgaray or Pena Nieto, according to a statement and photos released by the Mexican government. She was also not even invited, according to The New York Times. .. (read more)

It must be remembered the spring of 2018 was when President Trump was pushing forward with the USMCA trade agreement to replace NAFTA and the former Mexican government was pushing back hard against it.  President Trump announced he would initiate economic leverage against Mexico including tariffs if they did not comply with closing the NAFTA loopholes and supporting a new trade deal.

Videgaray and Nieto were fighting against President Trump and making threats to flood the U.S. with illegal aliens.  In the background Ambassador Jacobson was working as an inside agent to assist Mexico against President Trump.  Part of that effort by Ms. Jacobson was to organize and trigger the migrant caravan wave that happened in the fall of 2018.

The migrant caravan held a dual purpose of benefit for Ambassador Jacobson and the Mexican government:

(1) The caravan of immigrants was a coordinated ideological effort of the far-left, the open border community.

(2) The caravan of immigrants and the crisis they carried would be used as leverage by Mexican officials against Trump policy in the economic trade negotiations.

♦ In August of 2017 President Trump and Commerce Secretary Ross were discussing their trade efforts within NAFTA and renegotiation with Mexico/Canada on a trilateral basis. However, the U.S. administration said if it doesn’t work, they’d scrap the 3-way NAFTA deal and go one-on-one with individual bilateral agreements.

In response, Mexican Economic Minister Ildefonso Guajardo threatened to flood the U.S. with South American illegal aliens, criminals and gang members as leverage:

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexico could pull back on cooperation in migration and security matters if the United States walks away from talks to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement, the Mexican economy minister said in a newspaper report published on Thursday.

“If they do not treat [us] well commercially, they should not expect us to treat them well by containing the migration that comes from other regions of the world and crosses Mexico,” Guajardo said. “Or they should not expect to be treated well in collaboration with security issues in the region.” (LINK)

However, Mexican Minister Ildefonso Guarjardo’s threat was mild compared to a threat in January 2017, when another Mexican official promised to flood the U.S. with South American drugs and gang violence:

♦ In a stunning segment on Fareed Zakaria’s CNN broadcast January 29th, 2017, Mexico’s former foreign minister, Jorge Castaneda, states the Mexican government was willing to counter U.S. President Donald Trump policy by unleashing drug cartels upon the U.S. border.

Watch, and more importantly LISTEN, to his words at 02:10 below (Prompted):

 

This was the most politically explosive admission by the Mexican government in the past decade. Even Fareed Zakaria realized what was being threatened and quickly attempted to redirect the conversation.

Mr. Castaneda was openly admitting a willingness to promote drug trafficking. Additionally, Jorge Castaneda is so proud of the threat, he posted a video of the discussion on his own YouTube page.

 

This was the background battle in 2017.  Mexican officials were working with U.S. State Department officials and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to block President Trump from enforcing immigration limits, border security, building a wall and then proceeding to get rid of NAFTA.  The entire diplomatic corps, and Wall Street group which finds them, were trying to stop President Trump’s initiative.

Trump was waging this economic confrontation against Mexico at the same time he was dealing with North Korea nukes, moving trade policy in Southeast Asia, initiating tariffs against China and coordinating energy independence with peace in the middle-east.  There was so much going on that almost no-one was paying attention to the issues in Mexico…. UNTIL the fall of 2018 when the Central American caravans hit the headlines.

Roberta Jacobson had coordinated the caravans and was fired by Trump in the spring of 2018.  So when Biden hired Jacobson to be the border coordinator in January 2021 for 100 days (note the timeline was not accidental) she was installed specifically to trigger this massive influx of illegal aliens; which is an exact duplication of what she did in 2018 as Ambassador to Mexico.

Jacobson was always going to leave the administration after her successful mission.  It was planned this way.  The only reason she is leaving a little earlier is because she accomplished her task ahead of schedule.  She is leaving early because she did better than JoeBama expected.

Hopefully that clears up the confusion.

‘Critical Race Theory’ Being Taught at US Army’s West Point: Congressman

A Republican congressman said he is looking for answers from the U.S. Military Academy West Point about whether “critical race theory” is part of instruction for cadets. Rep. Michael Waltz (R-Fla.) sent a letter to West Point’s superintendent, Lt. Gen. Darryl Williams about “information” that recently came to his “attention from unsettled soldiers, cadets, and families that raises serious concerns about the U.S. Army’s introduction of elements of critical race theory into cadet instruction.” “While we should always eradicate extremism of all forms from our ranks and never tolerate racism, I am alarmed that this doctrine that focuses our future leaders on race in ways that will be detrimental to unit cohesion, destructive to morale, and strain the readiness of our armed forces,” according to the letter. Waltz told the Washington Examiner that he was able to speak with Williams. “We had a brief phone call, he assured me they’re looking into …

BOMBSHELL: Investigators Discover Modem Chips Embedded in Michigan Voting System Computer Motherboards | Geller Report News

Chips for remote access which, of course, has been categorically denied by the party of election theft and treason.

“Biden” is illegitimate.

EXPLOSIVE: Investigators for Attorney DePerno Reportedly Discover Modem Chips Embedded in Michigan Voting System Computer Motherboards

By Jim Hoft, April 10, 2021:

Friday’s release by Attorney Matthew DePerno on his ongoing election fraud investigation was explosive.

For months the companies behind the computer voting systems claimed their computers did not have internet access.

In his report that was filed in Michigan court, DePerno revealed that the ES&S DS200 voting machines contain a Telit LE910-SV1 Modem Chip installed on its motherboard.

Friday’s release by Attorney Matthew DePerno on his ongoing election fraud investigation was explosive.

For months the companies behind the computer voting systems claimed their computers did not have internet access.

In his report that was filed in Michigan court, DePerno revealed that the ES&S DS200 voting machines contain a Telit LE910-SV1 Modem Chip installed on its motherboard.

SEE Exhibit 6 in Antrim County Lawsuit

According to Patrick Colbeck at Let’s Fix Stuff the chip utilized a commercial Verizon SIM card with an Access Point Name (APN) configuration specific to the ES&S DS200 provisioning.

ESS DS200 Motherboard with Telit LE910-SV1 Modem Chip

According to former Senator Patrick Colbeck
What does the Telit LE910-SV1 Modem Chip do?

  • Enable communication between voting system equipment and election servers
  • Designed to operate on a virtual private network
  • Testing has revealed that the same SIM card could be used in a separate wireless hotspot device. This device could then join the same APN as the ES&S voting machines.

The Daily Mail Confirms What We Already Knew – The Abandoned Hunter Laptop Is Legit and the Biden Family Is Very Sick | The Gateway Pundit

The Daily Mail confirmed in a report Friday what we already knew – The abandoned Hunter Biden laptop is legit.

The Daily Mail wrote on Friday:

Hunter Biden‘s ‘tell-all’ autobiography promised the unvarnished story of his struggles with drugs, family turmoil and his controversial love life.

But there were many shocking details of his debauched life that the president’s son chose not to share with readers, including details of his fragile relationship with his father.

Now DailyMail.com can reveal the secrets Hunter chose not to divulge, exposed in the contents of his abandoned laptop and verified by top forensics experts.

The Daily Mail goes on to say:

The bombshell cache of 103,000 text messages, 154,000 emails, more than 2,000 photos and dozens of videos are packed with revelations conveniently missing from the memoir, including:

  • How he begged his father to run for president in 2019 to salvage Hunter’s own reputation

  • How he repeatedly dodged police action against him, despite constantly dealing with drug pushers and prostitutes and having multiple run-ins with law enforcement

  • Hunter was guarded by a Secret Service agent while on a 2018 drug and prostitute binge in Hollywood, despite not being entitled to protection at the time and amid denials from the federal agency

  • Joe Biden was afraid his text conversations with Hunter were being hacked even as they discussed his White House bid

  • How Hunter’s laptop is brimming with evidence of apparent criminal activity by Hunter and his associates including drug trafficking and prostitution

We reported on this in late October and the Daily Mail is now confirming our work.

In late October only a week before the 2020 election, we reported on many disturbing files, pictures, and videos found on Hunter Biden’s laptop.

We published in a breaking exclusive that text messages from Hunter Biden’s computers revealed VP Biden, his brother, and his wife colluded to suppress Hunter’s actions with a certain minor:

BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: Text Messages Show VP Biden and His Wife Colluded to Suppress HUNTER’S ACTIONS WITH A CERTAIN MINOR

The next day we reported in an exclusive on Hunter Biden’s sordid orgy with a group of seedy individuals in Hollywood. At least one individual involved held a Russian passport. The incidents that occurred there were ripe for blackmail:

BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: Hunter Biden’s “RUSSIAN BLACKMAIL PHOTOS” Uncovered – Hunter with Russians in Hollywood

Then we reported exclusively that there are inappropriate pictures of Hunter with a minor:

BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: Hunter Biden Held Inappropriate Pictures of Certain Minor — Joe Biden Is Lying

Then we shared additional text messages from Hunter Biden that were devastating.

In a long text that Hunter sent to a family friend, Hunter exposes all that was going on with him and his family. (See also the Illustrated Primer)

In the first few paragraphs of the very long text message, Hunter claims he loves a certain person and that he and she have problems staying sober:

In the continuation to the text message, Hunter comes across as a victim where he never received enough recognition from the person he is discussing.

The person claims Hunter got her hooked on drugs and then Hunter says: “She has told people that I was sexually inappropriate with xxxx and that’s why I wasn’t allowed in the house.”

Next, Hunter comes across as borderline crazy. He claims this woman only wanted him for sex and yet she was sexually involved with escorts and her girlfriends. Hunter says this woman owes him over $400,000 and then declares this woman implied that Hunter and another certain person were sleeping together.

Then Hunter says that the woman threw his gun away and the police, FBI and Secret Service got involved. The woman claimed she did this because she was afraid Hunter would harm himself or the kids!

Next Hunter shares some very disturbing information.

He writes that his woman friend believes that if a certain minor comes to visit him, Hunter would be, “walking around naked watching porn, masturbating and doing drugs in front of her”.

Yes, that was devastating for sure.

In the final segment of his text, Hunter complains that others think he is an unfit uncle who can’t be trusted alone with children, but then he claims that he is a better father and uncle than anyone he knows.

Then Hunter complains that he has no money.

What a mess. This series of text messages and confessions show Hunter Biden and his entire family are very sick and shockingly dysfunctional. Joe Biden knew about Hunter’s abuse and addictions and protected Hunter rather than focus on his victims.

Of course, this information is legit.  It’s sick but it’s legit.

Democrats Urge Biden to Make COVID Vaccines Mandatory for Military after 40% of Healthy Marines Refuse the Vaccine | The Gateway Pundit

Democratic lawmakers want Joe Biden to force military personnel to take the COVID-19 Vaccine for the coronavirus which is unlikely to adversely affect healthy young Americans.

Nearly 40% of healthy young Marines are refusing the vaccine according to CNN.

CNN reported:

A group of Democratic lawmakers sent a letter to President Joe Biden requesting that he issue a “waiver of informed consent” to make getting vaccinated against Covid-19 mandatory for all US military service members.

CNN obtained a copy of the letter, which was sent on Wednesday from a congressional aide.

Currently the Department of Defense cannot make vaccinations mandatory because they have only been authorized by the Food and Drug Administration for emergency use. A waiver from the President could bypass that rule.

The Department of Defense has said publicly that the opt-out rate among service members eligible to be vaccinated is about 33%, but last week military officials and service members CNN spoke with from several bases and units across the country suggest the current rejection rate may be closer to 50%.
