God Repays — VCY America

He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the Lord; and that which he hath given will he pay him again. (Proverbs 19:17)

We are to give to the poor out of pity. Not to be seen and applauded, much less to get influence over them; but out of pure sympathy and compassion we must give them help.

We must not expect to get anything back from the poor, not even gratitude; but we should regard what we have done as a loan to the Lord. He undertakes the obligation, and, if we look to Him in the matter, we must not look to the second party. What an honor the Lord bestows upon us when He condescends to borrow of us! That merchant is greatly favored who has the Lord on his books. It would seem a pity to have such a name down for a paltry pittance; let us make it a heavy amount. The next needy man that comes this way, let us help him.

As for repayment, we can hardly think of it, and yet here is the Lord’s note of hand. Blessed be His name, His promise to pay is better than gold and silver. Are we running a little short through the depression of the times? We may venture humbly to present this bill at the bank of faith, Has any one of our readers [oppressed] the poor? Poor soul. May the Lord forgive him.

Incorruptible Holiness — Grace to You Blog

God’s holiness has been described as the sum of His infinite perfections. There is nothing for Him to learn, gain, or improve upon. Conversely there is nothing in the universe that can dilute, diminish, or contaminate the holiness of God—not even entering this corrupt, sin-ravaged planet as flesh and blood.

Pope Francis denies that Hell is ‘a place,’ says it is ‘a posture towards life’

Janet Yellin Fails to Instill Confidence

Joe Biden’s treasury secretary took to Capitol Hill yesterday, but her assurances weren’t very reassuring.

Douglas Andrews

St. Patrick may have driven all the snakes out of Ireland, but we’d like to see him perform that miracle in our nation’s capital.

Yesterday, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellin took to Capitol Hill, there to soothe the fears of both lawmakers and the rest of us about the recent collapse of two banks: Silicon Valley Bank in the leftist enclave of California, and Signature Bank in the leftist enclave of New York.

If you have three hours to kill, knock yourselves out.

Otherwise, read on.

Yet Yellin’s reassurances that our banking system was sound and that the Biden administration’s “resolute commitment to ensure that depositors’ savings remains strong” didn’t seem to instill confidence in anyone. And why would they?

Remember: This is the same elegantly coiffed Janet Yellin who, back in 2021, told us that the bone-crushing phenomenon known as Bidenflation was “transitory.” It was a claim that turned out to be dead wrong — so much so that she had to concede as much last year.

“I can reassure the members of the [Senate Finance Committee] that our banking system remains sound,” Yellin said, “and that Americans can feel confident that their deposits will be there when they need them.”

Indeed, her performance was, well, downright serpentine. You will not surely die, she seemed to be telling us.

What Yellin failed to disclose about these too-blue-to-fail banks, SVB and Signature, is that they were neck-deep in wokeness initiatives and chock-full of Demo donors in Big Tech and Big Climate. If you understand that, you understand the big picture of what’s happening here. As our Nate Jackson rightly noted earlier this week: “American taxpayers will bear the financial burden of two big banks overextending themselves to Democrat allies. The Wall Street Journal editorial board calls it ‘an income transfer from average Americans to deep-pocketed investors.’ The overextension, in turn, goes back to Democrat regulation of the banking industry.”

So much for the party of the people, the party of everyday Americans. Folks, as Scranton Joey likes to say, there’s been a switcheroo. This ain’t your granddaddy’s Democrat Party.

As for the Democrats’ penchant for picking winners and losers, Oklahoma Republican Senator James Lankford pressed Yellen on that very issue — about whether the administration’s safety net will apply across the banking industry.

“Will the deposits in every community bank in Oklahoma, regardless of their size, be fully insured now?” asked Lankford. “Will they get the same treatment that SVB just got, or Signature Bank just got?”

Answer: Nope.

Uninsured deposits, she said, would only be covered in the event that a “failure to protect uninsured depositors would create systemic risk and significant economic and financial consequences.”

Missouri Republican Josh Hawley saw right through this Yellinspeak: “Let me translate that,” he told Fox News’s Laura Ingraham. “You only get protection if you’re a woke billionaire who gives a lot of money to Democrats.”

What might the future hold? Bad tidings, it seems. As the Washington Free Beacon’s Matthew Continetti observes: “Now Biden and the Fed are caught in a stimulus trap: Higher interest rates increase the likelihood of financial instability, while keeping rates pat — or cutting them — will prolong the inflation. Doing nothing will perpetuate the current mix of declining standards of living amidst periodic chaos.”

So we’ve got that going for us.

Incidentally, if you were worried about whether these events will affect the savings of our, er, friends the Chinese, fear not. As The Washington Times reports, “Uninsured Chinese depositors in the failed Silicon Valley Bank likely will be made whole through the special assessment on U.S. banks that is funding the rescue crafted by the Biden administration, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen told lawmakers Thursday.”

Whew. That’s a relief. We wouldn’t want our nation’s foremost geopolitical foe getting stuck instead of everyday Americans.

The Biden Crime Family’s Chinese Millions

The House Oversight Committee has some receipts for ChiCom money the Bidens received.

Nate Jackson

People smart enough to get their news from The Patriot Post and/or other conservative media have known about Joe Biden’s quid pro quo crime syndicate involving his wastrel son Hunter since October 2020. Unfortunately, millions of Americans were deliberately kept in the dark by the Leftmedia/Big Tech censors, so he won the 2020 election. Now that Republicans control the House, however, they’re digging up the receipts on Biden’s corruption.

First of all, our nation’s intrepid journalists were consumed for years chasing down every shred of a hint of a rumor regarding Donald Trump’s supposed collusion with Russia — even awarding themselves Pulitzers for all the fake news. It shouldn’t have been too much to ask that they spend five minutes looking into Joe Biden’s family. Clearly, however, the Leftmedia works for the Democrat Party and they had a 50-year Swamp dweller to elect as president, so not only didn’t they cover the news, they actively worked to “fact-check” and suppress it.

For example, only 17 months after the fact did The New York Times even get around to quietly admitting that Hunter’s laptop was “authenticated” and not a Russian hoax.

That said, what has the House Oversight Committee uncovered? Chairman James Comer (R-KY) released a memo yesterday detailing some large financial transactions involving several Bidens, revealed thanks to subpoenas from the committee, as well as listing some questions to which the committee is seeking answers.

“The Committee recently obtained financial records related to Mr. John Robinson Walker, a Biden family associate, and his company Robinson Walker, LLC,” explains the memo. “Prior to issuing the subpoena, the Committee received information that Mr. Walker used his company to transfer money to Biden family members.”

In fact, $3 million was wired from CEFC China, a now-defunct energy conglomerate that like every other Chinese business is tied to the Chinese Communist Party, to Walker’s company, which then distributed nearly $1.1 million to several Bidens via numerous smaller deposits. “The recipients of the money included Hallie Biden, companies associated with Hunter Biden and James Biden, and an unknown bank account identified as ‘Biden.’” That happened beginning in March 2017, curiously two months after Joe Biden left the vice presidency. Other transfers from Walker’s business to him personally and then to Hunter Biden were dated November 2015 — while Joe Biden was vice president.

“The Oversight Committee is concerned about the national security implications resulting from President Biden’s family receiving millions of dollars from foreign nationals,” said Comer. “We will continue to follow the money trail and facts to determine if President Biden is compromised by his family’s business schemes and if there is a national security threat.”

Comer also said his committee had uncovered a “decade-long pattern of influence peddling, national security risks and political cover-ups” perpetrated by the Biden family.

The committee is seeking answers to several questions:

The Committee is concerned about the information revealed in these bank records, including: (1) why the Chinese energy company waited less than two months after Vice President Biden left public office to send the $3 million wire; (2) why the Robinson Walker, LLC account received the China company’s payment instead of the Biden family members’ companies; (3) why the payments to the Biden family members were structured in incremental payments to different bank accounts; (4) what services the Biden family members provided to the China company and when those purported services were provided; (5) why Hallie Biden — publicly reported to work as a school counselor — received money from Robinson Walker, LLC; 2 and (6) who the account holder is for the bank account entitled “Biden.”

By the way, Hallie Biden is the widow of Beau Biden who began a romantic relationship with Hunter the year after his brother’s death. Other Biden family members involved in these and other transactions include the “Big Guy’s” brothers Jim and Frank, and it’s possible the grift involves Jim’s wife Sara, Howard Krein (daughter Ashley’s husband), and Joe’s sister Valerie Biden Owens.

When Biden was first asked about these allegations in October 2020, he rejected it categorically as “Russian disinformation.” That was a lie, of course, and he knew it. After three years of the media circling the wagons, his family is resorting to other tried and true Democrat tricks, dismissing it as “old news” that isn’t important anyway.

Hunter’s legal spokesperson called it “something old” and Comer is trying to “make it new by wrapping it in a wild and baseless right-wing conspiracy.”

“Hunter Biden, a private citizen with every right to pursue his own business endeavors, joined several business partners in seeking a joint venture with a privately-owned, legitimate energy company in China,” the spokesperson explained. “As part of that joint venture, Hunter received his portion of good faith seed funds which he shared with his uncle, James Biden, and Hallie Biden, with whom he was involved with at the time, and sharing expenses.”

Hunter may have been a private citizen with every right to sell his (ahem) vast personal experience to Chinese and Ukrainian companies. Or he may have been a crack addict used by his dad to cash in on the Biden name and Joe’s position of power. Or somewhere in the nebulous middle.

The White House instead chose to express phony dismay that Comer “has now decided to go after Beau’s widow,” as if somehow Hunter’s lover is out of bounds regardless of the evidence.

In any case, it’s three years past time the American people learned all the facts about their president and his family.

Comer intends to make that happen. “This just shows how deep the Biden family was involved in this influence-peddling scheme,” he said. “It looks to me like these people, who are closely aligned with the Chinese Communist Party, sent $3 million to a shell corporation, then they turned around and split it three ways with a third going to the Biden family — three different family members for no apparent reason. They didn’t invest it in a business. They just, it appears, stuck it in their pocket.”

Why does any of this matter? Doesn’t pretty much everybody who’s anybody in Washington, DC, engage in lucrative foreign business dealings? What makes Biden worse?

Well, consider that China unleashed COVID on the world, killing more than a million Americans and wreaking havoc on our economy. The ChiComs are supplying the fentanyl industry that’s killing tens of thousands more Americans. They’re spying on millions of us through TikTok and balloons and stealing our intellectual property, all while triangulating with our Russian and Iranian adversaries. China represents our number one geopolitical threat.

Yet the current American president has been pretty soft on China conspicuously after his family profited immensely from business dealings there. Is that really a coincidence?

Executive News Summary

DeSantis leads 19 states against ESG agenda, FAA nominee has ZERO aviation experience, and more.

Thomas Gallatin & Jordan Candler


  • DeSantis leads 19 states against Biden’s ESG agenda: Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has created an alliance of 19 states in an effort to counter Joe Biden’s environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investment order. Releasing a joint statement, the states warn that Biden’s “proliferation of ESG throughout America is a direct threat to the American economy, individual economic freedom, and our way of life, putting investment decisions in the hands of the woke mob to bypass the ballot box and inject political ideology into investment decisions, corporate governance, and the everyday economy.” That DeSantis is leading this push against Biden’s woke agenda is yet another indication that he will soon be launching his presidential campaign.
  • Biden’s FAA nominee has ZERO aviation experience: When a commitment to diversity trumps competency, everyone suffers. In one of the most blatantly woke and racist (but we repeat ourselves) decisions made since assuming office, Joe Biden has nominated Phil Washington to head the Federal Aviation Administration. While Washington may be entirely competent to lead men in battle, the one thing he has never done and cannot currently do is fly an aircraft. And that is because Washington is not a certified pilot and has never had flight training. So why did Biden tap such a manifestly unqualified individual to head the FAA? Almost certainly because Washington is black. This seems like a classic diversity hire for the sake of diversity. So egregious is the choice that 14 Republican lawmakers who are themselves licensed pilots sent a letter to Biden calling on him to pull Washington’s nomination precisely because he has “zero aviation experience.” It does seem like he’d be better suited to run the Transportation Department…
  • China and Russia will talk: Next week, Chinese dictator Xi Jinping will be traveling to Russia for a meeting with Vladimir Putin. The visit is obviously intended as a show of support for Russia and is the first for Xi to Moscow since Putin launched his invasion of Ukraine. Strategically, Xi aims to carve out the role of mediator and potential peace broker while setting up China to usurp America’s role as the world’s top diplomatic arbiter. For Putin, having China publicly express support for his nation will be used to further spin an air of legitimacy to his blatant territorial power grab. In short, for both Xi and Putin, all this is global political posturing. Putin could end his war today, and Xi could give up on his greedy ambitions to take over Taiwan, but neither will.
  • Why did Greta delete that tweet? Back in 2018, the world’s arguably most famous radical climate activist, Greta Thunberg, posted a tweet claiming that “climate change will wipe out all of humanity” by 2023 if fossil fuel usage continues. Thunberg’s post included a link to an article that stated, “A top climate scientist is warning that climate change will wipe out all of humanity unless we stop using fossil fuels over the next five years.” Well, it’s 2023, and humanity is far from wiped out or even remotely being on the verge of impending climate-caused global annihilation. And conveniently, Thunberg’s tweet has mysteriously disappeared. Is anyone surprised? Climate alarmists repeatedly make predictions of the end being near only to be proven wrong in every single instance. The polar bears are gone… Nope, they’re still there, and their numbers are growing. No more polar ice… Oops, the caps are still iced. And so on. Climate alarmism is little other than Chicken Little grifting, but it has proven lucrative for individuals like Al Gore, who has made millions preaching a message of environmental doom and gloom.

The Flood of Border Blood on Biden’s Hands

Why Democrats boycotted the border meeting this week.

Mark Alexander

A human trafficker killed a Texan grandmother, Maria Alvarez, 71, and her granddaughter, Emilia Tambunga, this week — just the latest victims of Joe Biden’s deadly open border. They were killed by Rassian Natery Comer, who evaded police while transporting 11 illegal immigrants in his van, two of whom were also killed.

“While I am heartbroken, I am also enraged,” protested Rep. Tony Gonzales (R-TX). “Enough is enough. Illegal immigration is killing Americans. We need to stop with the rhetoric and deliver solutions.”

But Biden and his leftist congressional cadres are not and never have been interested in solutions because, despite all the Leftmedia echo-chamber fake-news claims they are securing our border, they are not. Fact is, the Demos’ whispered policy is, and has been since Biden arrived, keep our border open, and the result is that an estimated 5.5 million illegal immigrants have entered the U.S. There has been no serious effort to close our border since Donald Trump left office.

That is precisely why Demos were AWOL this week when House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Mark Green (R-TN) convened his key committee members at the border to investigate (read: “expose”) the Biden administration’s open-border agenda. Among those testifying was Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz, who, when asked by Chairman Green if we have operational control of our southern border, responded flatly, “No, sir.” Green noted that U.S. Code stipulates that operational control means “the prevention of all unlawful entries into the United States, including entries by terrorists, other unlawful aliens, instruments of terrorism, narcotics and other contraband.”

Hmm … “terrorists, other unlawful aliens, instruments of terrorism, narcotics and other contraband.”

In the first six months of fiscal 2023, law enforcement agents have stopped 69 suspects on the FBI’s foreign terrorist watch list. That is on pace to substantially exceed the 98 interdictions in 2022.

However, in addition to the 5.5 million illegal immigrants Biden has, in effect, invited across our southern border, there have been 1.4 million additional border crossers who entered without being apprehended, those called “gotaways.” Given that actual terrorists are certainly more highly trained and skilled at evasion when entering the U.S., I wonder how many of those were among the 1.4 million who entered on Biden’s watch with their “instruments of terrorism.”

And regarding the flood of blood on Biden’s hands, consider the “narcotics and other contraband” that he has allowed across our border. White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre recently claimed, “Because of the work that this president has done, because of what we’ve done specifically on fentanyl at the border, it’s at historic lows.” Nate Jackson fact-checked that number: “More than 70,000 Americans died from a fentanyl overdose in 2021. … The death toll almost certainly went even higher in 2022.” Most of that fentanyl is being trafficked into the U.S. across our southern border by the Sinaloa and CJNG cartels after being mass-produced in Mexico with chemicals sourced primarily from China. The reports of enormous interdictions almost daily barely put a dent in that trafficking.

Additionally, amid the crime surge Demos provoked and promoted over the last three years, Republicans should demand from DHS and the FBI a national database on violent crimes committed by illegal aliens so there can be some accountability for that toll resulting from Biden’s open-border policy. Of course, the obstacle to reliable data is the same as it is with the FBI’s overall crime data — some Demo-controlled states and urban centers, especially those so-called sanctuary cities, will also conceal crime data committed by illegal immigrants.

As for the cost of illegal immigration to taxpayers, Heritage Foundation researcher Erin Dwinell notes, “The crisis now costs California $21.76 billion and Texas $8.88 billion annually in education, health care, law enforcement and criminal justice system costs, welfare expenditures, and more.”

Finally, Democrats have repeatedly claimed that Capitol Police officers who committed suicide after the J6 protests were “killed by the protesters.” Well, in addition to the rising body count of Border Patrol agents murdered by illegal immigrants, there were 17 Border Patrol officer suicides last year. Not a word from Democrats claiming they were “killed by illegal immigrants.”

The Appalling ‘Morality’ of Democrats

When an American president says it’s sinful to defend children against gender mutilation, we’ve arrived at a very dark place.

Brian Mark Weber

President Joe Biden claims to care about our children. But it’s not what you think.

Biden and the Democrats have twisted the cultural narrative so much that the president recently declared that resisting the “transgender” mutilation of children is “close to sinful.” He also said in reference to the grossly misnamed Respect for Marriage Act that we need to “pass legislation like we passed with same-sex marriage.” He threatened, “You mess with that, you’re breaking the law and you’re going to be held accountable.”

That’s a chilling threat from the president of the United States, a supposed “good” Catholic,“ and it’s directed at the millions of Americans who are standing up to defend our children from these horrific practices. But it’s especially rich coming from Joe Biden, who claims to have changed his mind about same-sex marriage after seeing two men kissing way back in the 1950s. Biden says that was an epiphany in his life. “I’ll never forget it,” he said. “I turned and looked at my dad. He said: ‘Joey, it’s simple. They love each other.’”

Joey, it’s simple. You’re a liar.

Back in 1973, more than a decade after he learned that those fictitious men simply loved each other, Biden opposed homosexuals working in the federal government. In 1993, he voted in favor of the Defense of Marriage Act, which defined marriage as the union of a man and a woman. He also supported Bill Clinton’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy in the U.S. military.

As for children, political analyst Robert Spencer wonders whether Biden will ever be held to account for the human cost of his misplaced compassion. “Almost certainly not,” he writes. “He’s more likely to get a Nobel Prize than to face the repudiation and shame that should be coming to him for endorsing this inhuman social contagion.”

Although Biden and others may have thought they were being compassionate and empathetic by opening the doors to celebrating and codifying same-sex marriage, it was entirely predictable that they wouldn’t stop there and that our children would be the groomers’ next target.

Sadly, too many on the side of morality and decency are silent.

But Florida Governor Ron DeSantis isn’t holding back. In response to Biden’s comments about the sinfulness of protecting children, DeSantis said: “It is not ‘sinful’ to prohibit the mutilation of minors. It is not acceptable for the federal government to mandate that procedures like sex change operations be allowed for kids.”

At least there’s one person in power who’s not afraid to stand up for children.

Fortunately, while the establishment uniparty on Capitol Hill is too fearful to stop this horrific attack on the most vulnerable among us, states around the country are taking bold steps. More recently, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem signed the Help Not Harm bill, making hers the sixth state to restrict or outright ban so-called gender-affirming surgery and even puberty blockers and hormone therapy for minors. It’s particularly welcome there given Noem’s previous inconsistency.

What’s problematic for the anti-science Left is the disregard for solid research. As the Manhattan Institute reports: “On the issue of medical treatment for youth gender dysphoria in particular, American medical organizations have demonstrated a preference for ideologically driven conclusions over cautious review of the available research.”

In reality, this movement to mutilate our kids is really a social and cultural one. There’s very little debate, and those who do speak up are condemned in the most aggressive and hateful ways. Think of the attacks on author J.K. Rowling for merely expressing her views on sex and gender.

And we can’t forget about James Shupe, the first “nonbinary” American.

“It wasn’t until I came out against the sterilization and mutilation of gender-confused children and transgender military service members in 2017 that LGBT organizations stopped helping me,” Shupe writes. “Most of the media retreated with them. Overnight, I went from being a liberal media darling to a conservative pariah.”

The laws now being considered in some states may be a case of too little, too late. Unless we seriously address what one writer calls “the queering of the American frontier,” the country may be irreversibly lost.

In the end, a nation that considers itself both civilized and virtuous and yet won’t defend its children is neither civilized nor virtuous.

‘Trad Wives’ Are Triggering Feminists

Some women are rediscovering the beauty of being a housewife.

Emmy Griffin

What started out as a BBC joke/skit wherein working women complain about having to work has blossomed into a trend on TikTok called #tradwife. “Trad wife” is slang for traditional wife (i.e., a stay-at-home wife with kids), and the videos are generally of these women going about their day. Many of them are religious. The more theatrical among this set have chosen to go the extra mile (it is TikTok, after all) and actually dress up like 1950s housewives. And it’s making the radical feminists and the wokesters angry.

How dare these women post about being satisfied being wives and mothers? Women fought hard for the right to work and be outside the home. This trend, to feminists, is like a social contagion that needs to be suppressed at all costs.

What happened to women supporting women? Why are they so threatened?

Here are some thoughts.

Trad Wives Are Great!

By this we mean that traditional wives are great, not necessarily the hashtag trend on TikTok (every trend has its wackos). But here in the real world, society needs women who, if they have the means and inclination, are homemakers. We need women who are cooking, cleaning, and raising children. It is dignified good work.

Not all women have this option. It is very hard to survive financially on one income. Some moms are hybrids who stay at home with children but also work. This is also good and necessary.

Not all women have the inclination or desire to marry. Not all wives are called to have children. That is also okay.

What is ridiculous is that instead of respecting the choices these women have made — a good and societally necessary choice — the screaming masses are tearing these women to shreds.

Critiques of the Trend

It is interesting that the mainstream media have been reacting so strongly to this TikTok trend. The usual mudslinging ensued. This trend is racist, sexist, homophobic, and trans/gender-nonconforming-phobic.

It’s racist, you see, because many of the women in these videos are white. It’s also particularly racist because some of these trad wives dress in 1950s clothing — didn’t you know that during the ‘50s there was Jim Crow and segregation?

Honestly, some of these people need to get off their screens and go outside and touch grass. Being traditional doesn’t mean retrograde. These critics are looking for something sinister in something that simply is not.

It also overlooks the fact that there are plenty of women of color who are also traditional wives. We suppose, though, according to the woke, that adhering to and agreeing with an institution such as heteronormative marriage is akin to being a racist, but you’re still going to have to square that circle.

The sexist accusation is baffling. Can women be sexist against themselves? Leftism is so confusing. On the one hand, they tell us if women/girls don’t act girly enough, we must actually be men. Then when women embrace their femininity in a traditional way, they are raked over the coals for not being like men. Honestly, we can’t win. Perhaps that’s the point of this circular illogic.

According to them, trad wives are homophobes, transphobes, and/or nonbinary-phobes because being in a traditional nuclear marriage (one man, one woman) is bad.

Conversely, being in a monogamous traditional marriage is fulfilling a purpose — family and security — and is satisfying to both partners.

The Tell That #Tradwife Is Actually on to Something

The fact that these radical feminists and leftists are reacting so strongly to this TikTok trend is a tell that the trad wives might be on to something.

Perhaps these women looked too happy. Because “traditionalism when it comes to homemaking has a particular magic to it that seems fulfilling,” argues political analyst Brandon Morse. “Men love being breadwinners and having loving, caring wives. Women want to feel safe, provided for, and admired.”

Perhaps these women’s choices threaten the Left because they’re subversive to the woke rhetoric, upholding the institution of marriage and family at the most basic units. Being a wife, mother, and homemaker throws a wrench into the works of this ideological takeover. If a wife is at home carrying out everyday duties, she might notice if something awful comes home from her child’s school (like a pornographic book from the library). She might not be as reliant on convenience items and instead she might garden, bake, create, and sew. She might even be teaching her children to be religious like herself. This, of course, is probably the greatest threat.

Being a religious wife and mother in a committed marriage is now an act of extraordinary courage. Sharing it on TikTok is an act of rebellion to the woke.

“When our [gender-confused] children tell us who they are, it is our job as grown-ups to listen and to believe them. That’s what it means to be a good parent.” —Minnesota Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan (“No it is not our job as grownups to simply believe whatever our children say. In fact our job very often is to do exactly the opposite.” —Matt Walsh)


“I don’t believe the deficit spending is one of the main causes of inflation.” —Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen

The BIG Lies

“There were 550 companies of the Fortune 500 that made $40 billion that didn’t pay a penny … in taxes. … I said they ought to pay a minimum of 15%. … That’s less than you all pay. And guess what? It allowed me to cut the deficit.” —Joe Biden

“[Biden’s] economic agenda is fueling an unprecedented clean energy manufacturing boom that is bringing energy costs down.” —White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre

“Everything that we have seen since June, when … Roe v. Wade … was taken away from women, puts women’s lives in danger. And now we’re seeing anti-abortion legislation across the country — again, dangerous to the health of women.” —Karine Jean-Pierre

Veep Thoughts

“It is important to understand what freedom and opportunity means to real people every day, which calls into question whether we’re all on the same page about what freedom means.” —Kamala Harris

“[Biden] is an extraordinary leader and I wish that people could see what I see.” —Kamala Harris

Re: The Left

“Black Lives Matter has taken up the Marxist mantle and is incorporating a Jesse Jackson-style extortion scheme through which BLM threatens to call people racist and damage their reputations or businesses in order to get the funding it desires. The Claremont Institute has been able to track at least $82.9 billion in ‘donations’ or ‘pledges’ by individuals and companies to BLM. … The reasoning [leftist] companies have behind bending to the grift (as if giving money will ultimately protect them, which it won’t) isn’t as scary as the political and cultural ramifications of the riots, bullying, lying, and indoctrination that BLM is bringing about.” —Emmy Griffin

“Blacks now make up less than 6% of [San Francisco’s] population but an estimated 38% of its homeless people. If the do-gooders running the city want to actually do good, they’d clean up the city, make it safe, and free its residents of the draconian one-party tyranny that has plagued it for so long. … For several years now, San Francisco has only exported its residents. We’d say the pain is starting to open some minds except that enacting reparations will likely only accelerate that exodus.” —Nate Jackson

“Calling individuals ‘people of color’ is literally no different than saying ‘colored people,’ but they’ve trained you to be good little sheep who use the first term because they added a preposition to make it sound nicer.” —Joel Abbott

For the Record

“The cost of Joe Biden’s open border is incalculable, and not only in terms of the human and financial costs. Even harder to calculate is the cost to the American fabric, which is irrevocably altered over weeks and months and years and generations as an influx of people unlike any in American history is forcibly distributed across the land, often without notice and in the dead of night. Article 4, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution states, ‘The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion’ (emphasis ours). Maybe Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats should revisit the oaths they took.” —Douglas Andrews

“As the Reason Foundation reported in 2020, ‘Inflation-adjusted K-12 education spending per student has increased by 280 percent since 1960.’ … But trust us: Our kids haven’t gotten 280% smarter since 1960. Indeed, now we’re learning that they’ve gotten demonstrably dumber. A new study suggests that, for the first time in nearly 100 years, the American people’s average IQ is declining, with the greatest difference in annual IQ scores being in the 18-22 age group. … Trillions of dollars have been pumped into our nation’s public schools and universities for decades, and this is what we’re getting. If ever a moment was ripe for a hostile conservative takeover of Big Education, this is it. —Douglas Andrews

“The reality of abortion is dark and leaves women hurt and ashamed while abortion facilities continue to profit. Abortion is a lucrative industry preying on misinformed or desperate women.” —Scarlen Valderaz

My New Political Litmus Test: Election Fraud, the COVID Panic, and January 6 | The Stream

It used to be easy. Back when being pro-life cost a candidate something, instead of boosting his chances, that was a good enough litmus test for who deserved support. There were still some pro-life Democrats in office — quite a few, when I was a kid, since in big cities that party had been the semi-official political wing of my own Catholic Church. (Can you spell “I-R-I-S-H?”) A serious party in New York was the Right to Life Party, through which I first registered to vote.

Establishment Republicans were mostly pro-choice before Reagan, like George H.W. Bush — whose father, a U.S. senator, helped Margaret Sanger found Planned Parenthood. In private (sometimes in public) such people would talk about “thinning out the welfare rolls.” One way we knew that Reagan was trustworthy was his embrace of the unborn’s cause.

Reagan Converted His Party

Then the pro-life issue conquered, at least among Republicans — and was hunted to extinction among Democratic candidates. There are more wild rhinoceri running free in Africa than pro-life Democrats serving in office today. If I were a betting man, I’d put my money on the rhinos. Poachers have nothing on pro-choicers, when it comes to ruthlessness and firepower.

That meant that claiming to be pro-life became a net political benefit among Republicans. So while the issue remained first and foremost in my priorities, it no longer served to weed out the opportunists, weaklings, hobbyists, and crooks.

A Country Without Borders Isn’t … a Country

The next crucial issue, in terms of importance, was immigration. As I explained in an Obama-era article, “Amnesty Equals Abortion,” it’s all fine and dandy to advocate pro-life judges. But if you keep importing millions of new, poor voters who follow the breadcrumb trail of government benefits and race-baiting ethnic politics into the Democratic party … you won’t accomplish a thing.

And as we saw, overturning Roe v. Wade changed nothing in deep-blue states, like my native New York. Voters were once 50/50 on that issue. But millions of low-skill immigrants later, it’s a one-party state. Likewise, on other issues, the federal government imported an entire congressional district full of Somalis to elect Ilhan Omar. That wasn’t an accident.

Now Suddenly Everybody’s a Border Hawk

So immigration control was the next reliable test of a politician who actually cared about saving his country, more than he did about boosting the bottom line of companies that relied on very cheap labor. It marked off Pat Buchanan, for instance, from the Chamber of Commerce errand boys who dominated the GOP in the 90s.

And we won on that issue, too, at least inside the GOP. Few conservatives outside the Wall Street Journal’s editorial suite now still claim that wide-open borders are helpful to Americans. The era of John McCain lecturing voters that they are bigots for wanting borders ended at last. Now virtually every Republican candidate at least pretends to want border security — even if like Paul Ryan he quietly works to sabotage it.

Costly, Controversial, and Crucial

So what’s a decent test issue to tell me whether a politician has principles, and a heart filled with passionate love for our great, endangered country? Here are the criteria, the three big “C’s”:

Costly. Taking a stand must cost a candidate something inside GOP circles, repel some high-dollar donors, and win him instant hatred from our Stasi media. Controversial. It can’t be a no-brainer, where taking the correct stand is virtually forced on someone by politics. You won’t see many Republicans openly questioning the Second Amendment, for instance. So that issue, though critical to freedom, won’t shake out the men from the boys. Of course, someone who’s wrong on it is instantly worth opposing. Crucial. The issue must be make-or-break to the survival of freedom in our country. So as much as I care about … the humane treatment of animals, and preserving historical landmarks, neither subject will meet the need.

So are there any issues that meet all these criteria?

Yes, I’d say that there are three, and for each I’ll explain how these stances jump through all three of my hoops.

Election Fraud

Is a candidate willing to admit that Democrats routinely engage in election fraud, and did so in a massive way in 2020, employing the lax voting rules smuggled in during the


panic? Admitting this ugly fact will earn a candidate the earsplitting leftist dog-whistle “Election Denier,” and might even get him sued by a billion-dollar corporation. It will turn off some big money interests, and unite our media in hostility to a forthright, courageous candidate.

This isn’t a no-brainer, sadly. Look at the GOP establishment in states like Georgia, where playing footsie with leftist community organizers like Stacy Abrams somehow became all the fashion in top Republican circles.

Crucial? Could any issue be more crucial? Of what conceivable value is any candidate who adopts every single solid, pro-freedom, conservative and Christian-friendly position in the world, with just one single caveat:

But … I want to let Democrats steal all our elections, and imprison people who demonstrate against that as ‘insurrectionists.’ Apart from that, I’m 100% with you.

That’s like somebody offering you $1 billion for your house, then you read in the sale document’s fine print the payment schedule: $1 per year, for a billion years.

Vaccine Mandates and Lockdowns

Far too many self-styled conservatives were willing to throw out every constitutional principle when our elites waved the panic flag over COVID. They meekly went along as governors shut down churches (but not casinos or abortion mills), bankrupted small businesses, banned political gatherings (except for BLM riots) and forced a dubious, rushed vaccine dependent on aborted babies’ tissue into every American’s arm.

It cost candidates (and pastors) something to push back against that panic. Ron De Santis was accused of “mass murder” for re-opening Florida. Church leaders who gathered for worship were condemned as “superspreaders.” Leftists in the media even sneered when the beloved Herman Cain died of COVID, as if he’d deserved it, for attending an election rally for Trump.

There was far from universal resistance on the Right to the COVID panic attack. Far too many eager to appear “responsible” threw their weight behind the most radical, draconian measures — as if locking down the country and forcing vaccines into their veins brought no costs at all.

And yes, it is absolutely crucial that we refuse and resist the construction of a public health dictatorship, where the Constitution itself can be suspended at the whim of the World Health Organization. Which is run by Communist China. Call me a far-right lunatic, but that rubs me the wrong way.

January 6

When the election integrity rally on January 6, 2021 went sideways, establishment Republicans pounced right alongside the Left. You had the likes of Liz Cheney (and others still in power) colluding with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer to purge the GOP of anyone linked to Trump. Hundreds of honest citizens went to jail in inhuman conditions for trivial crimes or non-crimes. Dozens have been imprisoned after highly politicized trials with inadequate counsel before biased judges and juries.

And the authorities have been hiding or destroying evidence, denying it not just to media but to defense counsel. The January 6 hearings were run like Stalinist purge trials, right down to refusing to examine what role our secret police (the FBI) played in goading the chaos and violence.

Please Support The Stream: Equipping Christians to Think Clearly About the Political, Economic, and Moral Issues of Our Day.

There is massive pressure inside the GOP to shrug at all this injustice, if only to crush the populist insurgency inside the party. Few conservative media (The Stream is among the exceptions) have even proved willing to question the savagely one-sided narrative put out by Deep State lackeys and lapped up across the spectrum.

It’s not politically popular to ask ugly questions about the FBI, the Capitol Police, or the fairness of our justice system. Digging out the role of FBI infiltrators in instigating violence requires that we look again at how that agency has been doing the same among Muslims, for instance — essentially manufacturing “extremism” and “terrorism” to meet a perceived shortage.

And yes, it’s incredibly crucial that Anarcho-Tyranny not run wild in America unopposed. One political faction cannot be allowed to riot across the country, and escape with a slap on the wrist, while the other half of the country is held to the strictest standards of Prussian decorum — or else imprisoned so cruelly that they plead to be transferred to Guantanamo Bay, where conditions are less abusive.

So those are my three litmus test, deal-killer issues. Take some time and think about yours.

Restoring Truth to Politics

A closer look at both the Bible and America’s Constitution reveals that neither ever intended to separate Christian truth from government. But the damage has been done with many Christians believing in the “wall of separation.” Pastor Rob Pacienza shares three priorities that Christians need to establish to see truth and goodness brought back into our politics.

Freedom of Speech Under Fire| CBN NewsWatch March 17, 2023

Freedom of Speech under fire after a prominent U.S. Judge was “shouted down” during a visit to California’s Stanford law school. As Americans worry about what’s next for the country’s banks Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen was on Capitol Hill Thursday to take tough questions from lawmakers. A Federal judge pressed both sides in a hearing questioning FDA approval of an abortion drug. A life-or-death election. “That’s what pro-life organizations consider the battle for control of Wisconsin’s Supreme court. Right now, conservative Judges hold a one seat majority that democrats are trying to win. The black voices movement’s goal is to reach, empower and equip Black Millennial’s and Gen Zs with the Gospel. It’s important work when you consider statistics show only 1-percent of American missionaries are black. Climbing steep hills and navigating rocky paths: hiking in the holy land can be challenging. the tough terrain has made it nearly impossible for the disabled to enjoy all the sites Israel has to offer.

White House Press Corps Frustrated At Biden Ignoring Questions | RealClearPolitics Videos

FNC’s Harris Faulkner looks at President Biden’s refusal to answer questions from the White House press corps in light of assurances yesterday from press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre that he would do so.

HARRIS FAULKNER, FOX NEWS: Frustration over the top among the White House press. They say President Biden has a long pattern of refusing to answer their questions.
