Dr. Fauci voices support for vaccine mandates, predicts mandates are coming once FDA gives shots full approval – Conservative Review

Dr. Anthony Fauci, chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden, suggested Sunday that municipalities should begin issuing COVID-19 vaccine mandates.

What did Fauci say?

During an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Fauci agreed that vaccine mandates should become a reality on the “local level.”

“I have been of this opinion, and I remain of that opinion, that I do believe at the local level, Jake, there should be more mandates. There really should be,” Fauci told host Jake Tapper.

“We’re talking about life-and-death situation. We have lost 600,000 Americans already, and we’re still losing more people. There have been 4 million deaths worldwide. This is serious business. So, I am in favor of that,” he added.

In fact, Fauci foreshadowed what may come in the near future: vaccine mandates when the Food and Drug Administration gives the vaccines official approval. 

Currently, COVID vaccines being used in the U.S. have been awarded emergency authorization only.

I think the hesitancy at the local level of doing mandates is because the vaccines have not been officially fully approved. But people need to understand that the amount of data right now that shows a high degree of effectiveness and a high degree of safety is more than we have ever seen with emergency use authorization. So, these vaccines are as good as officially approved with all the I’s dotted and the T’s crossed. It hasn’t been done yet because the FDA has to do certain things, but it’s as good as done.

People should really understand that. But they are waiting now until you get an official approval before. And I think, when you do see the official approval, Jake, you are going to see a lot more mandates.

State of the Union with Jake Tapper 7/11/21 | CNN Breaking News Today Jul 11, 2021 youtu.be

What is the background?

Fauci’s request came as the chorus of vaccine-mandate advocates grows louder. 

CNN political analyst Julian Zelizer, for example, made headlines last week after demanding that vaccination and vaccine passports become a mandatory staple of American life as COVID-related hospitalizations remain at low levels. CNN medical analyst Leana Wen is also aggressively pushing for vaccine mandates.

Meanwhile, former Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, who served the Obama administration, told the New York Times she also supports businesses and schools enacting vaccine mandates.

‘Who shot Ashli Babbitt?’ Trump asks, floating theory ‘head of security’ for top Democrat could have pulled trigger — RT USA News

Donald Trump has suggested the “head of security” for a top Democrat in Congress is behind the shooting of Ashli Babbitt during the Capitol riot, and demanded the release of their name.

In a Sunday interview with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo, Trump described Babbitt as an “innocent, wonderful, incredible woman” and once again demanded that the identity of the shooter be released. 

“People want to know [who shot Ashli Babbitt] and why,” the former president claimed. 

Babbitt, an Air Force veteran, was shot and killed after rioters breached the US Capitol on January 6, and lawmakers and security either locked themselves in place or evaded the area. The identity of Babbitt’s shooter has not been released, but it had been believed to be a Capitol police officer who fired the shot, allegedly to prevent Babbitt and others from breaking through a door. Trump, however, has suggested that it was the “head of security” for a top Democrat who was behind Babbitt’s death. 

Bartiromo first brought up the “speculation,” and Trump confirmed he’s heard the same things. 

“I’ve heard also that it was the head of security for a certain high official, a Democrat,” Trump said. 

The shooter, the former president added, is being “protected,” but the truth “will come out.”

Ashli Babbitt’s death has become increasingly controversial, with mostly conservative critics claiming the shooting was unjustified and demanding the release of the shooter’s name and further investigation. Fox News’ Tucker Carlson has been among the most vocal pundits questioning Babbitt’s death. 

Liberal pundits have not been so suspicious of the death, and many blasted the president’s latest suggestions, claiming it could “inflame”some on the right. 

Since leaving office, Trump has continued to hold rallies and release public statements on current events. He also recently joined a class action lawsuit against Facebook, Google, and Twitter, seeking to take away those platforms’ ability to discriminate against people based on political opinions. Trump’s political future, however, has been open to speculation, with the president hinting multiple times that a 2024 presidential run could happen.

Asked if he will be running by Bartiromo, Trump said he “knows”whether he is running or not and people are “going to be very happy”with his decision.

“I absolutely know my answer, and we’re going to do very well and people are going to be very happy,” he said.

FBI Wants Family Members To Snitch On Each Other To Prevent ‘Homegrown Extremism’ | ZeroHedge

“As the Nazis worked to consolidate their power and build a cohesive “national community,” suppression of dissent played a key role. In 1933, the Nazis issued a decree that required Germans to turn in anyone who spoke against the party, its leaders, or the government…” –Facing History

The FBI issued an ominous tweet on Sunday which encourages “family members and peers” to “learn how to spot suspicious behaviors and report them to the FBI” in the name of national security.

The broadly-worded tweet from the same agency that confiscated an unassembled Lego model of the US Capitol as evidence against a Jan. 6 protester – suggests that family members are “often best positioned to witness signs of mobilization to violence.” For example, your radicalized Antifa nephew is being encouraged tell the FBI that you might be a domestic terror threat because you own guns and told the family at Thanksgiving you don’t like illegal immigration.

The FBI’s tweet goes hand-in-hand with a campaign dating back to at least September of 2020, when FBI Director Chris Wray told Congress that the greatest threat facing America comes from domestic extremists (and not the thousands of ‘protesters’ who spent much of last year looting, murdering and setting fires across American cities), which quickly morphed into ‘angry white men’ who disagree with Democratic policies.

Combine that with President Biden framing the Capitol rioters as ‘white supremacists,’ which he said is ‘he most lethal terrorist threat to our homeland today’, and Gen. Mark Milley, the highest-ranking military officer in the U.S. as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, testifying last month that he wants to understand where ‘white rage’ comes from, and it couldn’t be more clear that this is a coordinated propaganda campaign to demonize an entire race to solve a problem that largely doesn’t exist, while actual domestic terrorism is excused as ‘mostly peaceful’ protests.

Chicago’s 400 homicides year-to-date (black rage?) apparently don’t register on the radar, but if your indoctrinated leftist family member thinks you’re on the path to ‘extremism’, you may receive a knock on the door.

Plague Of Biblical Proportions: A Billion Sea Creatures Have Been Cooked To Death By The Blazing Heat — The Economic Collapse

Did you know that a billion sea creatures were just wiped out on the west coast?  And they did not die pleasantly.  The historic “heat dome” that hit the Northwest like a freight train literally cooked them to death.  Needless to say, this is not normal.  In fact, we have never, ever seen anything like this before.  Weather patterns all over the planet are going absolutely nuts, and this is having a devastating impact on many highly vulnerable ecosystems.

I knew that the recent heat wave was really bad, but I didn’t know that it had caused this much destruction.  According to NPR, it is being estimated that the record high temperatures along the west coast killed at least a billion sea creatures…

With the Pacific region hitting record-setting temperatures in the last few weeks, a new study from Canada shows the heat waves’ enormous impact on marine life: An estimated 1 billion sea creatures on the coast of Vancouver have died as a result of the heat, a researcher said.

It is hard for me to wrap my mind around a billion sudden deaths.

Why isn’t the corporate media making a much bigger deal about this?

Can’t they take a break from obsessing over the latest political scandals for just a little bit so that they can report on the things that really matter?

A billion deaths is an unimaginable loss, but Professor Christopher Harley says that the true death toll is probably even higher than that

But that number is likely to be much higher, said professor Christopher Harley from the University of British Columbia.

“I’ve been working in the Pacific Northwest for most of the past 25 years, and I have not seen anything like this here,” he said. “This is far more extensive than anything I’ve ever seen.”

Harley is comparing a mussel trapped on the beach to “a toddler left in a car on a hot day”.  When the record heat came along, there was nothing that the mussels could do…

“A mussel on the shore in some ways is like a toddler left in a car on a hot day,” Harley told the CBC. “They are stuck there until the parent comes back, or in this case, the tide comes back in, and there’s very little they can do. They’re at the mercy of the environment. And on Saturday, Sunday, Monday, during the heat wave, it just got so hot that the mussels, there was nothing they could do.”

Millions upon millions of sea creatures were literally cooked to death, and the scene along the coast is nothing short of horrifying

Dead mussels and clams coated rocks in the Pacific Northwest, their shells gaping open as if they had been boiled. Sea stars were baked to death. Sockeye salmon swam sluggishly in an overheated Washington river, prompting wildlife officials to truck them to cooler areas.

This is truly a disaster of biblical proportions.

When are people finally going to start waking up?

According to Harley, when he surveys the immense carnage along the coastline it “feels like one of those postapocalyptic movies”

“It just feels like one of those postapocalyptic movies,” said Christopher Harley, a marine biologist at the University of British Columbia who studies the effects of climate change on coastal marine ecosystems.

Of course we have witnessed a lot of bizarre “plagues” lately, haven’t we?

Just last week, I wrote about how countless birds are suddenly dropping dead from a “mystery disease” in Washington D.C. and nine eastern states.

And last week I also wrote about the millions of grasshoppers that are relentlessly eating crops in seven western states.  Colossal hordes of voracious grasshoppers are on a rampage, and some of the swarms are so large that they are actually being picked up on radar.

But don’t worry.

We are being told that it is just a “coincidence” that so many bizarre things are happening all at once, and we are being assured that everything will go back to “normal” very soon.

You can believe that if you would like.

On top of everything else, now we are learning that “mosquitoes that carry West Nile virus” have been detected in six different states

Mosquito bites are annoying at best, and, at worst, can lead to illnesses like malaria, Zika virus and West Nile virus. New reports show at least six states are detecting mosquitoes that carry West Nile virus — and humans have contracted the disease in four of these places.

And in four of those states, there have already been confirmed cases of humans testing positive for the virus…

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Arizona, Arkansas, Illinois and Iowa have confirmed cases in humans.

In New York, officials informed residents on July 2 that two groups of mosquitoes tested positive for West Nile virus in Rockland County. No humans have been reported as contracting the disease in New York.

So let me get this straight.

Mosquitoes are testing positive for West Nile virus as far east as New York and as far west as Arizona, and this is the first that we are hearing about this?

What in the world is the corporate media doing?

I just went to the front page of CNN, and I couldn’t find a single story about this.

But there were plenty of stories about how much they hate the things that Trump has been saying lately.

West Nile virus is nothing to mess around with.  If you get infected, it can result in serious illness or even death.

Sadly, instead of keeping us informed, the corporate media would rather rehash old political controversies over and over again.

Perhaps they think that is good for ratings, but the truth is that it should make us all sick to our stomachs.

A billion sea creatures have been wiped out, birds are suddenly dropping dead in vast numbers, millions of grasshoppers are eating our crops, and now mosquitoes are spreading a deadly virus all over the country.

But if you rely on corporate media outlets for your news, you might not be aware that any of these things have happened.

This is just one reason why independent news sources are needed more than ever, and I am so thankful for the faithful readers that have supported my work all these years.

Perfect Purity — VCY America

He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment. (Revelation 3:5)

Warrior of the cross, fight on! Never rest till thy victory is complete, for thine eternal reward will prove worthy of a life of warfare.

See, here is perfect purity for thee! A few in Sardis kept their garments undefiled, and their recompense is to be spotless. Perfect holiness is the prize of our high calling; let us not miss it.

See, here is joy! Thou shalt wear holiday robes, such as men put on at wedding feasts; thou shalt be clothed with gladness and be made bright with rejoicing. Painful struggles shall end in peace of conscience and joy in the Lord.

See, here is victory! Thou shalt have thy triumph. Palm, and crown, and white robe shall be thy guerdon; thou shalt be treated as a conqueror and owned as such by the Lord Himself.

See, here is priestly array! Thou shalt stand before the Lord in such raiment as the sons of Aaron wore; thou shalt offer the sacrifices of thanksgiving and draw near unto the Lord with the incense of praise.

Who would not fight for a Lord who gives such large honors to the very least of His faithful servants? Who would not be clothed in a fool’s coat for Christ’s sake, seeing He will robe us with glory?

July 11 Evening Verse of The Day

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is img_0691.jpg

104:24 In wisdom. See notes Prov. 8:22–31. The divine answer to Job (Job 38–41) contains many examples of God’s wisdom in creation. See “The Wisdom and Will of God” at Dan. 2:20.[1]

104:24 wisdom The Hebrew word used here, chokhmah—meaning “skill,” “experience,” and “shrewdness”—is often used of human wisdom. Yahweh’s chokhmah is marked by His insight and foresight.[2]

104:24 — O Lord, how manifold are Your works! In wisdom You have made them all.

The creation reveals our God with a vast intellect that we cannot begin to comprehend. Our best scientists must regularly revise their theories to try to explain what He created—and He puts all His wisdom at our service.[3]

24. “O Lord, how manifold are thy works!” They are not only many for number but manifold for variety. Mineral, vegetable, animal—what a range of works is suggested by these three names! No two even of the same class are exactly alike, and the classes are more numerous than science can number. Works in the heavens above and in the earth beneath, and in the waters under the earth, works which abide the ages, works which come to perfection and pass away in a year, works which with all their beauty do not outlive a day, works within works, and works within these—who can number one of a thousand? God is the great worker, and ordainer of variety. It is ours to study his works, for they are great, and sought out of all them that have pleasure therein. The kingdom of grace contains as manifold and as great works as that of nature, but the chosen of the Lord alone discern them. “In wisdom hast thou made them all,” or wrought them all. They are all his works, wrought by his own power, and they all display his wisdom. It was wise to make them—none could be spared; every link is essential to the chain of nature—wild beasts as much as men, poisons as truly as odoriferous herbs. They are wisely made—each one fits its place, fills it, and is happy in so doing. As a whole, the “all” of creation is a wise achievement, and however it may be chequered with mysteries, and clouded with terrors, it all works together for good, and as one complete harmonious piece of workmanship it answers the great Worker’s end. “The earth is full of thy riches.” It is not a poor-house, but a palace; not a hungry ruin, but a well-filled store-house. The Creator has not set his creatures down in a dwelling-place where the table is bare, and the buttery empty, he has filled the earth with food; and not with bare necessaries only, but with riches—dainties, luxuries, beauties, treasures. In the bowels of the earth are hidden mines of wealth, and on her surface are teeming harvests of plenty. All these riches are the Lord’s; we ought to call them not “the wealth of nations,” but “thy riches” O Lord! Not in one clime alone are these riches of God to be found, but in all lands—even the Arctic ocean has its precious things which men endure much hardness to win, and the burning sun of the equator ripens a produce which flavours the food of all mankind. If his house below is so full of riches what must his house above be, where

“The very streets are paved with gold

Exceeding clear and fine”?[4]

24. This pause for reflection and adoration saves us from turning the psalm into a poetic catalogue, but also from misreading the almost frightening fertility of the living world. What the sceptic sees as a meaningless swarm of life, the psalmist teaches us to view as giving some inkling of the Creator’s wealth, and of the range and precision of his thought. And because all is shaped by his wisdom, the creation is a unity, not only stirring us to wonder but (as Ps. 3:2 will observe) inviting us to explore it.[5]

Ver. 24.—O Lord, how manifold are thy works! This is a parenthetic ejaculation, from which the psalmist cannot refrain, as he contemplates creation so far. It breaks the continuity of his description (vers. 2–32), but not unpleasingly. In wisdom hast thou made them all (comp. Prov. 3:19, “The Lord by wisdom hath founded tile earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens”). (On the “wisdom” of God, as shown in creation, see the whole series of ‘Bridgewater Treatises.’) The earth is full of thy riches; or possessions (comp. Ps. 105:21). “The earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof” (Ps. 24:1). Creation gives the right of ownership.[6]

24. How beautifully is this verse introduced! It should seem as if the sacred writer, while contemplating the Lord’s goodness in creation and providence, could no longer contain himself, but leaving the whole of inferior creatures, breaks out in this hymn of praise. Reader! shall not you and I do the same, while contemplating with him the same wonderful subject, and adding to it also the still more wonderful theme of God’s goodness in redemption and grace? Yes, indeed, if we know ourselves to be the happy objects of these rich mercies in Jesus! Oh! Lord! may we well say, how manifold are thy works, and thy works to us! Lord! how is it that thou hast manifested thyself to us, and not unto the world? And, Reader! think what wonders will break in upon our souls when redemption work in us is finished; when standing on the sea of glass, with the harps of God in our hands, we sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints! Rev. 15:2, 3.[7]

How many are your works, O Lord! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures (v. 24). Before going on further to speak of the sea, the psalmist pauses to praise God for his manifold works. The opening words are an exclamation, which, in drawing attention to God’s works, in effect are a statement of praise of them. This clause is similar in form and intent to Psalm 8:1: ‘How majestic is your name in all the earth!’ Several Old Testament passages in addition to this one draw attention to the manifestation of God’s wisdom in creation (Ps. 136:5; Prov. 3:19; Jer. 10:12). The variation between English translations of the last word in the verse (either ‘your creatures’, or, ‘your possessions’) is due to uncertainty as to the Hebrew root from which it comes (cf. its use in the next psalm, where the translation as ‘possessions’ is necessary, Ps. 105:21).[8]

Safe Pastures — Daily Devotionals by Thoughts about God

We all need sanctified imaginations. It’s easy for us to fret and let our imaginations run wild. In reality, most things don’t happen the way we imagined them. The Bible doesn’t tell us to live by our imaginations. Our imaginations can be a fast track to worry. Worry says, “What happens to me seems out of my control.” Faith says, “My life is in God’s hands, and He is in control.”

Jesus, our Good Shepherd, will lead our minds to still waters and quiet resting places.

If our imagination runs free, it will soon run wild. Without being under the control of the Holy Spirit, our imagination can easily mislead us. Unchecked imagination can quickly take us down the road of anxiety and expose us to a wide variety of fears. We need to yield control of our imagination to the Holy Spirit. He will keep our imagination feeding in the safe pastures depicted in Psalm 23. Jesus, our Good Shepherd, will lead our minds to still waters and quiet resting places.

“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want..”  Psalm 23:1

July 11 Afternoon Quotes of The Day

Seeking God without Jesus
John 1:14–18; Hebrews 1:1–4

All who seek God without Jesus Christ, and who rest in nature, either find no light to satisfy them, or come to form for themselves a means of knowing God and serving Him without a mediator. Thereby they fall either into atheism, or into deism, two things which the Christian religion abhors almost equally.


Ritzema, E. (Ed.). (2012). 300 Quotations for Preachers. Bellingham, WA: Lexham Press.

Discoursing on the Trinity while Displeasing the Trinity
1 Corinthians 8:1; 2 Timothy 3:7; 4:2

What good does it do to speak learnedly about the Trinity if, lacking humility, you displease the Trinity? Indeed it is not learning that makes a man holy and just, but a virtuous life makes him pleasing to God.

Donald Trump Said The COVID-19 Vaccine That’s Killed 6,000 People So Far Should Be Called The ‘Trumpcine’ Because He Was The Force Behind It
In a speech given on April 10, 2021 at a closed door donor gathering at Mar-a-Lago for the Republican National Convention, former president Donald Trump said that the COVID-19 coronavirus should be called the ‘Trumpcine’ because he was the driving force behind its creation. When you consider that strong adverse reactions to the experimental vaccine are nearly one million, and that deaths are passing 6,000 souls, it’s quite a dubious achievement to be the one who brought these vaccines into existence.

A Country That Has Lost Its Way:

The American people have increasingly become aware that government surveillance and corporate censorship have combined to keep people ignorant and controlled. What is taking place has generated some dark humor. A friend of mine, also a former CIA officer, wrote to me recently and said tongue-in-cheek that he retains a lot of respect for the Agency because it is the only major government national security entity that does not read our mail and emails. Those jobs are the responsibility of the NSA and FBI. I responded that I would imagine that CIA does in fact read quite a lot of mail where it operates overseas but it is probably done the old-fashioned way by recruiting an underpaid mail clerk as an agent.

The whole issue of the government spying illegally on its own citizens has again made the news with the claims by conservative commentator Tucker Carlson that NSA has been spying on him, presumably because he has connections that the government regards either as subversive or, in the new reckoning, as “extremists” who are potential “domestic terrorists.” Given the reasonable assumption that anyone who voted for Donald Trump might well fall under those categories, that means that something like half the US population could be under suspicion.

Yes, They Really Are Coming for Our Children — Daily Declaration

The San Francisco’s Gay Men’s Chorus recently released a mock Broadway video boasting how “they really will convert your children”. After a massive backlash, the video has been taken down, but it can still be viewed here:

Note in particular the opening lines of the song:

You think we’re sinful,
you fight against our right,
you say we all lead lives you can’t respect.
But you’re just frightened,
you think that we’ll corrupt your kids
if our agenda goes unchecked.
Funny, just this once, you’re correct.

The SF Gay Men’s Chorus has since issued a statement on Twitter, claiming that not only are they the victims of homophobia but that,

‘After decades of children being indoctrinated and taught intolerance for anyone who is “other,” from using the Bible as a weapon to reparative therapy, it’s our turn.’

However, in an even more shocking development, Milo Yiannopoulos — who now identifies as a ‘reformed sodomite’ — has revealed that at least four men in the video are sex offenders, with one in particular a convicted paedophile. As such, they really are coming for our children. Literally.

Yiannopoulos has provocatively labelled the gay men’s chorus as a ‘pagan death cult’. In fact, Milo goes on to say that the video has done more damage to the gay cause then decades of opposition from FOX News or the US Republican Party. The full video with Milo can be viewed below:

FAMILY RESEARCH COUNCIL: Biden Agenda Undermining ‘Life, Family And Religion’

A webpage created by the Family Research Council, called “Tracking the Biden Administration,” shows that more than half of the president’s executive actions have had one focus. To undermine “life, family, and religious freedom.” “At the 100-day mark of the Biden administration, it has become evident that President Biden’s call for unity and healing on day one of his presidency was nothing more than a rhetorical diversion, as he has demanded conformity to policies and priorities that threaten to lurch America to the Left in historic proportions,” said FRC President Tony Perkins. FRC found that of 62 executive actions, 32 undermine life, family or faith. “As our Tracking the Biden Administration report shows, President Biden has moved at a record setting pace to enact a far-Left, anti-family agenda… (READ MORE)
