Journey to Capitalism


Ayn Rand 1967 Lecture on Capitalism

 

John R. Houk

© October 7, 2018

 

In my twenties (early 1980s) I became enlightened that the Democratic Party had moved to a political place that placed its moral make-up and stealth support of Socialist principles were antithetic to the Founding Fathers’ vision of a Constitutional Republic

 

And so, I abandoned supporting the political party my family insured was the way of thinking that saved America from the poverty of the Great Depression (circa 1929 through the 1930s decade). My Grandparents and mother lived through that devastating economic period in America. (I have since learned that Franklin Roosevelt’s policies may not have been as saving as my Grandparents and Parents were led to believe. But that is another story.)

 

As a former Dem I didn’t exactly embrace Ronald Reagan in the 1980 voting cycle. I fell for the line that Reagan was such a Hawk, he would push the nuke buttons ushering in WWIII. And I was so disenchanted with President Carter, there was no way I would vote for him. In 1980 I went Third Party. I voted for Ed Clark of the Libertarian Party.

 

In those days Ayn Rand writings were very influential among Libertarians thus that was my introduction into Randian Philosophy. I was addicted to all things Ayn Rand.

 

By 1980 I had been a Christian for two years. In case you didn’t know it, Christian Morality and Randian ethics influencing moral thinking do not line up well. You can guess the longer I have been a Christian, the more I gravitated away from an extreme affinity to Randian Objectivism Philosophy. And yet I still like Rand’s economic principles.

 

As such you should be aware Rand was a staunch Capitalist and very combative against Socialism and Communism. Ayn Rand was born into Czarist Russia in 1905. She endured the travesty of the Bolshevik (Communist) Revolution. She managed to complete her education and find a way to get out of the USSR in 1925 one year of graduating from a college in St. Petersburg (then Petrograd – later Leningrad then back to St. Petersburg). Rand passed away in America 3/6/1982. (Ayn Rand Lexicon bio)

 

I stumbled onto a lecture provided by Ayn Rand herself on Capitalism:

This 1967 lecture is Ayn Rand’s flagship talk on capitalism. In it she explains in depth what capitalism is, why it is often misunderstood and why it is the only social system consonant with man’s nature. She discusses the philosophical and ethical roots of capitalism, and contrasts them with the moral-philosophic doctrines that lead to rule by force. She then discusses progress under capitalism and how it is fundamentally different from the so-called progress of a statist society. Along the way, Rand takes up such questions as:

 

  • What is the essence of man’s nature?

 

  • What is the fundamental basis for the concept of individual rights?

 

  • How is capitalism consonant with man’s nature? Why are other social systems not consonant with it?

 

  • Why is serving “the common good” not a sound principle for governing a free society?

 

  • What are the different perspectives on “the good,” and how do they inform people’s views on what constitutes a proper social system?

 

  • What has been the ethical basis of all tyrannies in history?

 

  • Who prospers on a free market?

 

  • How does a free market unleash man’s creative abilities?

 

  • What is so often misunderstood about progress under capitalism?

 

This talk is excerpted from Rand’s substantially longer and more comprehensive essay of the same name. Students interested in mastering Rand’s views on capitalism are encouraged to study the full essay, available here, in addition to enjoying this course.

How do YOU Want to Define WE THE PEOPLE?

Abraham Lincoln (the first Republican President) quote on WE THE PEOPLE

 

Donald Trump’s election as President and the despicable lengths Leftists (i.e. THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY) have gone to smear and lie about Brett Kavanaugh to prevent a Constitutional Originalist from SCOTUS exposes a choice Americans have to make.

 

Do we Americans want to uphold everything that has propelled America into greatness from the Founding Fathers to now? OR do Americans want to continue Obama’s fundamental transformation of America toward moral relativity, Socialist Collectivism (as opposed to Free Market Individualism) and a tailspin into a Globalist New World Order subservient to international elitists rather than a government accountable to WE THE PEOPLE?

 

This is the CHOICE Americans must decide not only in Election 2018, but also future elections probably for decades, to solidify America’s final choice.

 

I FOR ONE will vote for what has made America Great! Leftist Transformists will lie and deceive to achieve their agenda.

 

DO YOU WANT TO LIVE IN AN AMERICA where lies and deception is the basis for your culture? THEN vote for the Democratic Party.

 

DO YOU WANT TO LIVE IN AN AMERICA where the rule of law derives from the standard of the U.S. Constitution that can only be changed by a significant majority of WE THE PEOPLE? THEN vote (currently) for CONSERVATIVE Republicans (NOT RINOs).

 

I placed the word “currently” in parentheses because today I list myself as an Independent rather than a Republican. WHY?

 

Because I have zero trust for the Republican Establishment that is the preponderance of GOP leadership. As long as you vote Conservative more than Republican, the Establishment GOP Establishment is pushed toward Conservative principles rather than political status quo principles that have had an enabling effect of the Dem Party Left.

 

Below are some articles (and a short video) that will provide some perspective of what Conservative Americans must fight for to preserve the Republic of the United States of America as envisioned by our nation’s Founding Fathers that risked their very lives to begin the political experiment that made America the greatest nation in earth’s history to date. Globalist George Soros is the focus of the first article and the second is actually an open letter to Americans from Hal Lindsey.

George Soros: Trump Has Almost Destroyed the New World Order

 

October 05, 2018

Prophecy in the News

 

Pouting George Soros

 

George Soros says he is alarmed and frustrated at the speed in which President Trump is dismantling the New World Order.

 

Speaking exclusively to the Washington Post, the billionaire globalist admits he regrets not foreseeing Trump’s meteoric rise to power.

 

Fearful that Trump “is willing to destroy the world”, Soros has vowed to “redouble [his] efforts” in pouring millions of dollars into opposing everything Trump stands for.

 

Zerohedge.com reports: While the Hungarian-American might come off as full of doom and gloom in his interview, he actually has a reason to feel that way because Trump has single-handedly presided over the dismantlement of the Liberal-Globalist world order that Soros has worked for decades to build, destroying the old paradigm of Trans-Atlantic relations in a simple spree of tweets and presiding over the return of Christian morals, ethics, and values in American society, ideas that are absolutely anathema to the atheist billionaire.

 

From Soros’ perspective, Trump is indeed destroying the world, albeit not in the apocalyptic sense like he’s implying but in the ideological one of pioneering a completely new world order than the one that the President inherited.

 

Obama, who can be regarded as Soros’ surrogate in the White House, worked towards building a world where the US bows before the authority of the UN on many (but crucially, not all) key issues such as climate change and sustainable development agendas, heralding in a new multilateralism that would have moved International Relations closer to a so-called “one world government”, albeit one that would still be largely under indirect American influence.

 

Concurrent with this, the Obama-Soros vision was to have the media attack all of their opponents as “racist, fascist, white supremacists” for daring to think that the future might be different, but then all of a sudden Trump came along and committed to undoing their legacy.

 

The world that Trump wants to build is one of unrestricted American unilateralism in “Leading from the Front” while unabashedly pioneering a return to unipolarity, righting what he truly believes to have been the many historic wrongs that Obama, Soros, and all the others before him committed in voluntarily handicapping American power through lopsided trade deals and various other unfair commitments.

 

All told, this global recalibration can rightly be described as a “Revolution in World Affairs” because of the “new thinking” involved in guiding America’s policies from here on out.

A Most Important Letter From Hal Lindsey To America

 

BY GERI UNGUREAN

OCTOBER 5, 2018

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

 

Hal Lindsey

 

It is almost impossible to overstate the importance of the crossroads at which we stand today in America.

 

The unexpected election of Donald Trump forced into open view the truth about the “fundamental change” that has occurred in our nation during the last few years. It revealed unacknowledged corruption in our government’s institutions that has shaken the confidence of many Americans.

 

In the same way, the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court has exposed the extreme threat the Left poses to the core values of our republic.

 

None of us doubted that the Left would fight tooth and nail to defeat anyone who might pose a perceived threat to our national orgy: the unrestrained practice of killing our unborn — or almost born — at whim. Most Americans, even if not practicing Judeo-Christians, still have within themselves an uncomfortable sense that something is not right about this national disgrace. After all, the “lawful” murder of 152 absolutely innocent persons per hour per day per week per month per year cannot be swept under the cosmic rug forever.

 

Deep within most Americans, the disconcerting thought lurks that, at some point, God Himself is going to say, “Enough is enough!”

 

But I think few of us realized exactly how much the Left is willing to sacrifice to preserve that national sin.

 

Everything.

 

One of the defining principles of our nation — one that is almost innate within the psyche of Americans — is the idea that each of us is “innocent until proven guilty” of any accusation. We all grew up knowing that, when the stakes were high, at least we had the protection of that fundamental assumption.

 

We knew that in matters great or small, the onus of proof was on the accuser. (Unless the accuser was Mom. She didn’t actually need proof, she somehow just knew.)

 

In fact, it has been a main pillar of jurisprudence in America for centuries, and millennia in previous societies.

 

Yet the main bludgeon in the final battle against Kavanaugh’s nomination has been an attempt to pervert that principle. The Left is so desperate to win that it has chosen to sacrifice that hallowed right on the altar of expediency.

 

The Democratic Party, the mainstream media, academia, entertainment, and a disappointing number of “establishment” organizations (even churches) apparently all agree that “guilt by accusation” is the new, acceptable standard. And that the concept of a “statute of limitations” is unnecessary.

 

I don’t need to tell you how explosively dangerous both of those ideas are. Normal Americans understand the frightening possibilities this quicksand represents. Those on the Left know, too, that’s why their reckless willingness to discard them is so disturbing.

 

“Guilt by accusation alone” was the foundation on which The Inquisition, the Salem witch trials, and the Reign of Terror were perpetrated. (Also, the practice that the accused defend himself before he heard the accusation. The Senate Judiciary Committee’s minority members — the Democrats — insisted that Judge Kavanaugh testify in his defense before Dr. Ford presented her accusations. The Committee Chairman refused.)

 

As I write this, I feel vaguely like we are Christian in the Slough of Despond (The Pilgrim’s Progress). It is, indeed, a dangerous place that can claim our lives if someone does not happen by to help us reach the other side.

 

In this case, I believe that “someone” is God and He has already happened by to help us. He has helped us by providing a spotlight to expose the dangerous bog into which our nation has wandered. And the helpful hand that is extended to us is the recognition that we, as citizens, have the power to pull ourselves out of this immediate threat before it is too late.

 

We have the means to reject the wiles and ploys of those who are willing to subvert our rights and liberties to hold on to the power to which they feel entitled.

 

That means is the ballot box. Our power is the vote.

 

We are just over a month from the mid-term general elections. As I always do, I encourage you to study the platforms and policies of the candidates in your state and your district. Compare them to the principles taught in the Bible.

 

Then vote the Bible. And vote your conscience.

 

Once again, I cannot overstate the importance of this moment in our history. If we are to continue to realize God’s blessings on our nation, we must get serious about rejecting the slide into nihilism. We must get serious about restoring to preeminence the moral foundations on which our nation was built.

 

We must get serious about seeking God’s forgiveness for our national failures and working to restore our national values.

 

Our second President, John Adams once observed, “Avarice, ambition, revenge and licentiousness would break the strongest cords of our Constitution, as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made wholly for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

 

America was not designed to operate in the chaos of backstabbing, greed, and rage. But since our nation has been systematically eliminating God from our institutions and culture, we no longer have the moral compass to sustain the greatness that our heritage allowed us to achieve.

 

Pray for America. We are at a moment of great crisis.

 

And greater danger.

What is the Actual Dem Resistance to Kavanaugh?

Breaking News as I was constructing this post

 

Julie Swetnick

 

A “Julie Swetnick” is now accusing Brett Kavanaugh not of sexual assault but of being one of many High School contemporaries of Kavanaugh of being a member of gang rape gangs.

 

AGAIN no corroboration or witnesses just Switnick’s word who is being represented by lawyer sleaze Michael Avenatti. The same Avenatti losing legal battles representing Stormy Daniels the porn actress who broke her nondisclosure agreement which she pocketed Trump cash. The same Avenatti who has his own legal and financial problems.

 

Even CNN (should be acronym for Communist New Network) brings up Avenatti’s criminal past in a story to potential financial involving $$$ MILLIONS:

He’s a convicted felon whose rap sheet is 15 pages long and spans four decades, according to court records. He served time in prison in the early 90s and was arrested on domestic violence charges as recently as February. (He pleaded not guilty and the case is awaiting trial). (Exclusive: How a ‘nobody’ ex-con pushed Avenatti law firm into bankruptcy; By Maeve RestonScott GloverSara Sidner and Traci Tamura; CNN; 6/1/18 Updated 8:12 PM ET)

And now as the Dems & Leftist MSM hops on the crucify Kavanaugh Train, Swetnick’s propensity for mental illness is being brought up:

In the wake of the 3rd Kavanaugh accuser Julie Swetnick’s identity becoming public through her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, The Kuhner Report received a call from a man who identified himself as “Thomas in Boston,”  whose family knew the Swetnicks “Well” in Maryland, and discussed the known “Issues of Substance abuse,” and “Mental Issues from Julie.”   He detailed a phone call from his sister this morning, who still lives in Maryland, where she said “Can you imagine a more delusional whack job is the one that came forward against Kavanaugh?”

“Thomas” also went on to describe the[y] are where they grew up in Montgomery Village, “Quite a distance from Bethesda” and that the “Social circles” would not have interacted.  He refutes that during High School “No way that she would have encountered these same social circles, certainly not during High School.”

He did say the information he received was “Second hand,” as it came from family members, but, he also offered details of the Swetnicks and his own family that lend credence to his story.

You can hear “Thomas in Boston” below: [i.e. on WRKO-AM 680 – The Voice of Boston page toward bottom] (Family Friend” of Julie Swetnick Details Her “Issues”; posted by Kuhner Report; WRKO-AM 680; 9/26/18)

 

What we have going on here is lie after lie by Dems trying to prevent Kavanaugh’s Confirmation.

 

+++****+++++****

Steven Ahle writing at DavidHarrisJr.com, lists 10 Republican Senators who have not committed to vote for Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s  confirmation to SCOTUS.

 

The Republican Party is supposed to stand for Conservative principles of governing. AND YET these GOP Senators will not go on the record to confirm Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh represents an Originalist view of the U.S. Constitution. This is as opposed to the official stand of the Dem Party that places its political principles on the so-called Living Conservative.

 

A brief description of Living Constitution:

 

In United States constitutional interpretation, the Living Constitution is the claim that the Constitution has a dynamic meaning or that it has the properties of an animate being in the sense that it changes. The controversial idea is associated with views that contemporaneous society should be taken into account when interpreting key constitutional phrases. While the arguments for the Living Constitution vary, they can generally be broken into two categories. First, the pragmatist view contends that interpreting the Constitution in accordance with its original meaning or intent is sometimes unacceptable as a policy matter, and thus that an evolving interpretation is necessary. The second, relating to intent, contends that the constitutional framers specifically wrote the Constitution in broad and flexible terms to create such a dynamic, “living” document. Opponents of the idea often argue that the Constitution should be changed through the amendment process, and that allowing judges to determine an ever-changing meaning of the constitution undermines democracy. The primary alternative to the Living Constitution is most commonly described as originalism. [Bold text Editor’s]

 

A brief description of the Originalist Constitution or Originalism:

 

In the context of United States constitutional interpretation, originalism is a principle of interpretation that tries to discover the original meaning or intent of the constitution. It is based on the principle that the judiciary is not supposed to create, amend or repeal laws but only to uphold them. The term originated in the 1980s but the concept is a formalist theory of law and a corollary of textualism. Today, originalism is popular among some political conservatives in the U.S., and is most prominently associated with Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Robert Bork. However, some liberals, such as Justice Hugo Black and Akhil Amar, have also subscribed to the theory. Originalism is an umbrella term for two major theories, principally: ⁕The original intent theory, which holds that interpretation of a written constitution is consistent with what was meant by those who drafted and ratified it. ⁕The original meaning theory, which is closely related to textualism, is the view that interpretation of a written constitution or law should be based on what reasonable persons living at the time of its adoption would have declared the ordinary meaning of the text to be. It is with this view that most originalists, such as Justice Scalia, are associated. [Bold Text Editor’s]

 

Both descriptions are from Definitions.net. It may be my imagination but it seems Definitions.net interpretation of Originalism though accurate in my opinion, is slightly dismissive. That annoys me. And so an affirmative analysis of Originalism comes Conservapedia:

 

Originalism is a method of constitutional interpretation that focuses on how a provision of a constitution would have been understood at the time of its ratification.[1]

 

The most common form is so-called “original meaning” originalism. This form that focuses on how ordinary people at the time would have understood the language of the constitutional provision. A largely-discarded form of orginalism [sic] is so-called “original intent” originalism, which focuses on what the authors of the constitution might have meant.

 

The philosophical basis of originalism is that a constitution only has force because it was approved by the people when it was ratified. Thus, the understanding of the constitution by the people who ratified it is the only valid interpretation.

 

Originalists reject the “evolving standards of decency” approach to constitutional interpretation that allows judges to effectively amend the constitution based on their own views of what the constitution “should” say. Instead, originalism is anchored in one certain interpretation. READ THE REST for even more details

 

Hmm… The concept of “evolving standards of decency” rather than a concept of “We The People” decide the rule of law by the vote is the fear that a Kavanaugh confirmation will ignore. Since Dems and Leftists in generals cannot stand that THE PEOPLE can comprehend what is good for them, Dems and Leftists would rather decide what is good for PEOPLE and what is good for society in general.

 

AND THAT IS WHY Dems in the Senate will do ANYTHING – lie, fabricate and/or rewrite laws via judicial activism – to prevent an Originalist to become a Justice on the Supreme Court of the United States.

 

OBVIOUSLY fabricating accusations of rape on Judge Brett Kavanaugh is the Dem process of doing ANYTHING to transform Constitutional Interpretation away from Originalism to Living Constitution is the purpose of the incredulous character assassination happening now.

 

Kavanaugh has already gone through SIX FBI investigations in his Federal journey of working for WE THE PEOPLE. In the confirmation process Kavanaugh experienced for the Federal Judiciary and Appellate Judiciary met hardly any Dem resistance. THEN he is nominated for SCOTUS and suddenly and mysteriously a couple of ladies with a sudden memory resurgence think it might have been teen Kavanaugh in High School and his Freshman year in college involved in their sexual assault that neither women reported to the police OVER 35 FREAK’IN YEARS AGO!

 

Only an idiot or an infected Leftist ideologue could believe such accusations. Are you an idiot are a mind-diseased Leftist Ideologue?

 

Think about your state of mind when you realize that there are actually TEN Republican Senators who haven’t made up their own minds on confirming Kavanaugh for SCOTUS.

 

Below Steven Ahle lists those ten Senators including their official phone numbers. MY GOD! If you are a constituent of one of these Senators call their office to demand Kavanaugh’s confirmation!

Here is an example email from what I sent to my Senator in Oklahoma according to the Steven Ahle list:

 

Senator Lankford,

It has come to my attention that you as a Conservative Republican have not committed to confirm Judge Kavanaugh to SCOTUS (https://davidharrisjr.com/politics/ten-senators-who-havent-committed-to-kavanaugh-yet/). I find this quite shocking as a Conservative! The only basis I can think of for any hesitation are the alleged sexual assault claims from ladies with very vague memories from over 35 years ago. AND IF Kavanaugh was a frisky teenage boy in High School and as a Freshman at Yale, can you not remember you were once a teenage boy. Even the most stellarly behaved teenage boy at very least has raging hormones that as more responsibility arises in life, more focus on mature life issues grow.

Surely you recognize that the sudden memory recovery of ladies that never reported a heinous crime of sexual assault when the alleged incident occurred are untrustworthy in their accusations. I have been doing some reading on sexual assault on women. In spite of MSM and/or Democratic Party assertions otherwise, sexual assault leave an indelible memory of revulsion and personal violation. Are you seeing this from Judge Kavanaugh’s accusers?

Dear God in Heaven Senator Lankford as a Conservative from Oklahoma, you should feel compelled to honor your constituents and confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Sincerely,

John R. Houk

Feel free to amend and place your Senator and name to an email or FAX.

Ten Senators Who Haven’t Committed To Kavanaugh Yet

 

By STEVEN AHLE

SEPTEMBER 25, 2018

DavidHarrisJr.com

 

There is one thing you have to admire about Democratic Senators. They stick together and move forward, public opinion be damned. I really wish Republican Senators would do the same. If they mess up the Kavanaugh nomination, it will cost them on November sixth. They try to please the Democrat voters who will never vote for them regardless, so why do they even try? Currently, 10 out of 51 Republican Senators are not committed to Kavanaugh. They are:

 

  • Maine Senator Susan Collins -office number 202-224-2523

 

  • Louisiana Senator Bill Cassidy – office number 202-224-5824

 

  • Tennessee Senator Bob Corker office number 202-224-3344

 

  • Arizona Senator Jeff Flake – office number 202-224-4521

 

  • Wyoming Senator Michael Enzi – office number 202-224-3424

 

  • Louisiana Senator John Kennedy – office number 202-224-4623

 

  • Oklahoma Senator James Lankford – office number 202-224-5754

 

  • Kansas Senator Jerry Moran – office number 202-224-6521

 

  • Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski – office number 202-224-6665

 

  • Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse office number 202-224-4224

 

Look at all the RINOs. Jeff Flake has already said that he may vote against Kavanaugh because of the bogus accusations against him. But the truth is, Flake hates Trump more than he likes his constituents.

 

From The Gateway Pundit

 

Creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti is set to roll out Kavanaugh’s 3rd alleged accuser in the next 48 hours–Michael Avenatti took his grotesque attacks to the next level and informed the Senate he is accusing Kavanaugh and witness Mark Judge of getting women intoxicated at parties with drugs and alcohol so they could be gang raped by a “train” of men.

 

Call these Republican Senators and tell them enough is enough!

 

Mitch McConnell blasted Democrats earlier Monday from the Senate floor.

 

McConnell said the resistance has become a smear campaign aided and abetted by members of the U.S. Senate.

Kid Pulls Knife on Woman and Demands Sex, So Man Pulls Gun on Kid and Teaches Lesson

The title of this Conservative Tribune article reads like the beginning of a bar joke:

 

Kid Pulls Knife on Woman and Demands Sex, So Man Pulls Gun on Kid and Teaches Lesson

 

It’s no joke. It is a good reason for the Second Amendment:

CBS47 VIDEO: Woman threatened with knife at

[Blog Editor: If the embed works on my blog you’ll never this is the hugest embed code I have EVER seen. Then again if doesn’t work, you’ll never know either. It is seriously too long. The url is just as long but thanks to tiny url the short link is embedded in the video title.]

 

A Florida woman says she was saved by a good guy with a gun after a teen pulled a knife on her in a store and demanded sex.

 

WJAX-TV reported that a 14-year-old was arrested after the incident at a Walmart in Fleming Island, about 20 miles southwest of Jacksonville, earlier this week.

 

“I am convinced that I would’ve been stabbed had it not been for the divine timing of another customer walking by who just happened to have a concealed carry license,” Alis Muntain wrote in a Facebook post Wednesday.

 

“I was making a quick run to get cat food and litter. My arms were so full that I was sitting in the aisle contemplating whether I wanted to put it down and search for a cart when a teenager (15-17) approached me. I thought he was going to see if I needed help, but then he asked how old I was.

 

“A bit confused by the question, I just assumed he needed help himself and wanted to verify that I was an adult. I hesitantly replied with my age. He then said ‘I want you to have sex with me. I have a knife in my pocket.’, proceeding to pull out his pocket and show me that there was indeed a knife there. I blinked, paused, and then said ‘Are you aware that we’re on camera?’”

 

He said he was. Muntain told him she wanted to make him “aware that I have a husband and a THREE year old son waiting in my car for me. They will be looking for me soon.”

 

Even after all this, she said, the teen continued to insist that she follow his orders.

 

“RIGHT at that moment, a man walked across the end of the aisle behind the teenager,” Muntain wrote.

 

“I have no idea how I had remained (at least visibly) calm to this point. Keeping my voice light, I called out ‘Excuse me sir, could you help me?’ as the boy turned to see who was behind him.

 

“Thinking I was talking about my still full arms, he said ‘sure’ and turned towards me. As soon as he took a step, I stated: ‘This boy has a knife and is threatening to use it on me if I don’t have sex with him.’”

 

After confirming what was happening, the man told Muntain to get help, she said.

 

“By this point, I was about 8-10 feet away, so I turned and RAN, screaming for help. I didn’t know the man had a concealed weapon that he pulled on the boy, who then proceeded to run after me. At the end of the aisle, I veered left. running into an entire display of plastic bins and losing my glasses, but he went right. He ran out of the store, but eventually was caught by police after pulling a knife on them as well,” she wrote.

 

“I firmly believe that if that man hadn’t walked by when he did and had his gun on him, things could’ve gone VERY differently. It still doesn’t feel real. I’m so grateful that he was placed in my path at that moment, and that he was exercising his right to bear arms. I always figured that was a slim possibility at my school, but never at a Walmart in Fleming Island. You literally never know …

 

“I’m safe, guys,” she concluded. “I just figured this was a story that should be shared, because it truly emphasized the importance of utilizing your freedom to keep yourself and others safe. I’m not trying to cause a huge debate, just offering some food for thought.”

Censorship/Defunding MUST CEASE!


John R. Houk

© August 25, 2018

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you are probably aware the wicked Left has been trying to mute Conservatives and Counterjihadists for some time via censorship and cutting off revenue streams.

 

I have posted on this effort to mute Conservatives several times. Here are some of the most recent titles:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Robert Spencer Censored

 

Now I am discovering the attack is pouncing on Counterjihad writer Robert Spencer. These are the platforms banning Robert Spencer:

 

Patreon

 

Mastercard has reportedly forced funding platform Patreon to kick conservative author and “Jihad Watch” owner Robert Spencer off its site.

 

“My name is April and I’m on the Trust & Safety team here at Patreon. I’ve been notified by Mastercard that we must remove your account from Patreon, effective immediately,” wrote Patreon in an email to Spencer. “Mastercard has a stricter set of rules and regulations than Patreon, and they reserve the right to not offer their services to accounts of their choosing. This is in line with their terms of service, which means it’s something we have to comply by.”

 

GoFundMe

 

After Patreon banned me without explanation, I set up a GoFundMe account, with the same goal in view of constructing a studio for Jihad Watch videos, and quickly raised over $3,000. …

 

 

But today, I got this:

 

Hi Robert,

We’re sorry, but we have canceled your 08/21 withdrawal of $3,299.42 from WePay Payments.

The funds from this withdrawal have been added back to your balance.

 

I also got multiple notices from GoFundMe; each informed me that a particular donation to me from a particular person had been refunded.

 

When I asked for a reason why they had canceled my withdrawal and were refunding all the donations to me, they did not, of course, answer.

 

MasterCard and Visa

 

[David Horowitz message to Robert Spencer]

 

Dear Robert,

 

We’re under attack by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC)…

For years, the SPLC has labeled the Freedom Center a hate group and tried to get organizations like Amazon, Facebook and Twitter to ban us and silence our message.

 

Yesterday, SPLC finally convinced MasterCard and Visa to cut us off. Now we can’t process donations from any major credit card companies.

 

In fact, if you received Robert Spencer’s e-mail last night, you may have noticed your donation was DENIED.

 

The pattern is quite obvious. If the Left can’t outright censor Conservatives and Counterjihadist websites, the plan is to starve the finances until there is no resource to operate.

 

THIS MUST CEASE!

 

Below is the Spencer email flowed by a Jihad Watch article on the situation by Christine Douglas-Williams.

The History of Jihad ad

 

The fascism is coming down fast. I’ve now been banned from Patreon and GoFundMe. MasterCard and Visa have stopped processing donations for the David Horowitz Freedom Center.

Why? Because David Horowitz and I are defamed as “hate group leaders” by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which is now strong-arming businesses to deny service to us. The SPLC has been discredited as a dishonest, far-Left propaganda outfit determined to destroy all those who dissent from its Leftist agenda, but that doesn’t matter: these companies are allowing no appeal, no discussion, no right to reply.

This will by no means end with David Horowitz and me. The authoritarian Left is working energetically now to ban all dissenting voices in the run-up to the 2018 elections.

If this keeps up, only Leftists will be allowed any kind of platform anywhere.

It’s clear that I am one of the principal people in the Left’s crosshairs. Muslim Brotherhood-linked Congressman Keith Ellison has already demanded that Amazon stop stocking books by people who are blacklisted by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

I wrote The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS as a challenge to the elites’ narrative about jihad and Islam. And it’s clearer every day now that the elites are brooking no challenges to their narrative, and are moving as fast as they can to muzzle the people who refute their lies and distortions.

 

Given that initiative, and Ellison’s specific demand to Amazon, I don’t know how long The History of Jihad will be available, although I’ll circulate it in mimeographed form if I have to.

The book is listed as out of stock right now at Amazon: the publisher and distributors were caught off guard by demand much greater than they expected. But if you order it now, you should receive it soon — as long as the book burners don’t shut the whole enterprise down. They’re on the horizon. Click here to order The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS now.

And please – again, while you still can – make a tax-deductible donation to Jihad Watch here.

Citizens beware: MasterCard and Visa cross the line into totalitarian thought control

 

Visa-MasterCard

 

By CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS

AUG 24, 2018 4:20 PM 

Jihad Watch

 

Like many people, my inbox has been flooded by concerned citizens about David Horowitz and Robert Spencer over MasterCard and Visa, blocking their flow of revenue needed for daily operations. Spencer stated:

 

This is getting very serious. It won’t stop with David Horowitz or me. The Left is moving quickly to silence all dissenting voices in the run-up to the 2018 elections. The freedom of speech is the foundation of a free society, and it is rapidly being destroyed in the United States.

 

To add to the heartfelt concerns of those who respect the work of these stalwart defenders of freedom and human rights, all citizens would do well to recognize that the actions of MasterCard and Visa are also a slap in the face to their customers. These companies have infringed upon the rights of anyone who supports the cause of freedom and the efforts of Horowitz and Spencer. Customers who choose to donate to these necessary initiatives have been told that they are financing “hate” and therefore are stripped of their right to donate. They have been dictated to by MasterCard and Visa, who are acting as if they do not have the right to think for themselves as long as they want to use the services of MasterCard and Visa.

 

As totalitarianism overshadows America, no one can say that they were not forewarned. Both Horowitz and Spencer have been sounding the alarm for years; the Muslim Brotherhood plan for North America has been public knowledge for years. Its Explanatory Memorandum is expansive and detailed in describing its mission:

 

“The process of settlement is a ‘Civilization-Jihadist Process’ with all the word means. The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”

 

9/11 “mastermind” Khalid Sheik Mohammed stated:

 

“We will win because Americans don’t realize . . .we do not need to defeat you militarily; we only need to fight long enough for you to defeat yourself by quitting.”

 

Mohammed was correct. Far too many citizens of the West have quit — they take their freedoms of granted and are in denial, having not learned the lesson of history that fascism is insidious and does not take control of societies suddenly, as many seem to think. Its invasion is methodical and gradual.

 

Some examples of how businesses have joined the totalitarian initiative:

 

Kellogg Co. announced on November 2016 its decision to pull ads from Breitbart “because its 45,000,000 monthly conservative readers are not ‘aligned with our values as a company.’” Here we see Kellogg’s attempting to control the thoughts of citizens and impose its values on consumers. Fortunately, Breitbart “launched a #DumpKelloggs petition and called for a boycott of the ubiquitous food manufacturer, which lead to plummeting stock and reported $53 million loss in the fourth quarter.” The arrogance of Kellogg Co. was astounding, with CEO John Bryant claiming that the company’s massive losses were just a “coincidence” and not due to the boycott.

 

In the three months following Kellogg’s war against Breitbart:

 

the company has faced allegations of racism toward factory workers and has been accused of allegedly profiting from the use of child labor. Its non-profit W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s ties to radical anti-American billionaire George Soros, hate group Black Lives Matter, and deceased Cuban dictator Fidel Castro have been exposed, and the Michigan-based company is set to shutter dozens of distributions centers and lay off more than 1,100 full-time employees.

 

Last August, Paypal decided that it, too, wanted to interfere with freedom of speech and thought. The company cancelled Jihad Watch’s account, but it was reinstated not long afterward after public outrage. Meanwhile, the Islamic State used PayPal to send money to jihadis inside the U.S., but that revelation wasn’t enough to stop Paypal from pontificating in its letter announcing its reinstatement of the Jihad Watch account:

 

PayPal’s Acceptable Use Policy in our User Agreement prohibits individuals and groups from using PayPal for activities that promote hate, violence, or racial intolerance.

 

This is a key statement, as Jihad Watch is not a hate site. It is a news aggregate and commentary site dedicated to exposing the broad range of human rights abuses committed in the name of Islam, and reports from a range of news sites are referenced. Take, for example, a few recent Jihad Watch headlines:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These are but a mere few examples, but they go on and on. What normal citizen can point out the “hate” in exposing such news? Every single day, reports emerge from the four corners of the earth about human rights abuses committed in the name of Islam, Islamic supremacist incursions into once-peaceful countries, the slaughter and injury of innocent people committed in the name of Islam, and jihad attacks. If reporting and discussing these facts are an offense to Muslims and deemed to be “hateful” and “racist,” then we need to have serious open discussions about why and how this is so. But there is a strenuous effort to shut down all discussion of these matters.

 

Meanwhile, who remembers or cares about the victims? Jihad Watch, the Horowitz Center and others that are unashamed to stand for human rights and who are grateful to those who died in the cause of freedom. Fierce battles have been waged against fascism, and if history has taught us anything, we should know that fascist regimes endeavor to control the thoughts and words of their people, as does the Southern Poverty Law Center today. The SPLC has mutated into a hate group itself. In the words of its former spokesman Mark Potok, who spent 20 years as an SPLC senior fellow (according to LinkedIn):

 

Sometimes the press will describe us as monitoring hate groups, I want to say plainly that our aim in life is to destroy these groups, completely destroy them.

 

As reported by Breitbart:

 

The David Horowitz Freedom Center has had their donation processing system blocked by Visa and Mastercard allegedly following a campaign by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Visa has since contacted Breitbart News to deny involvement in the blacklisting of the Freedom Center.

 

It is by degrees that totalitarians manage to seize control. The establishment media becomes a mouthpieces of the people in power, and soon, the population becomes enslaved to their ideologies, as we see with Islamofascism. It is abusive, oppressive and aims to silence all dissent as it marches against the House of War in order to subvert it and bring it into the House of Islam. This 1,400-year-old doctrine has infiltrated the West in the private and public sectors, and the Muslim Brotherhood, in accordance with its memorandum, has managed to redefine “hate” to mean any criticism of Islam.

 

Now Horowitz and Spencer stand accused of “hate,” without any semblance of justice or due process. MasterCard and Visa have bowed to the totalitarian impulse, and in so doing have also indicted their customers. This will continue, if there is no resistance. Let’s hope that boycotts and class action suits will soon be in the offing, prompted by both consumers and the leaders of conservative organizations.

Conservatives & Counterjihadists UNITE to Battle Leftist Censors

Conspiracy Theorist Alex Jones is facing a ban from all quadrants of Social Media, Prager U is being censored by Facebook and Youtube, and more. These appear to be the main culprits that hate Conservative ideology so much that they direct wholesale bans, shadow bans and temporary jail which is essentially a suspension of service for a period of time:

 

  • Facebook

 

  • Google

 

  • Twitter

 

  • Youtube (Google owned)

 

I myself have experienced the jail-privilege from Facebook and Google (specifically from G+) several times. As of this writing, G+ is preventing even a “request” to “join” any G+ Community. As a test I even withdrew from a couple of low-traffic Communities, then I tried to put in a couple of “ask to join” requests. Each time a little banner-box pops up telling me there was an error and try again later.

 

I’ve been trying later for weeks now and the error message still pops up.

 

Here is a list of Conservatives censored one way or the other from 3/4/18 Gateway Pundit:

 

Young Cons: Extremely popular conservative news site and received millions of daily readers during the election.  The website received nearly all of its traffic from Facebook. Since 2016 Facebook shut down stories to Young Cons.  Each algorithm change meant less traffic for the popular website.  YoungCons was blacklisted by Facebook and struggles to maintain readers.  The site regularly switches domains to save traffic.

 

SarahPalin.com: With over 4 million fans one of the popular conservative pages on Facebook until Facebook blocked all traffic to the website.  The page was forced to change the domain to save traffic numbers.

 

Right Wing News:  Right Wing News grew to an enormous website in the past few years thanks its popularity on Facebook. In July of 2015, in just a week, the Right Wing News Facebook page reached 133 million people. Because conservatives were sharing content they were interested in, Right Wing News (with 3.6 million Facebook likes) was driving the same amount of web traffic as some of the biggest newspapers in America.  Since the 2016 election Facebook blocked traffic to the website.  Owner John Hawkins announced he was shutting down the website in January.

 

Western Journalism: Newsweek reported that the site has grown from receiving 1,000 page views a day in 2009[3] to more than 1 million during 2016. The website was averaging around 6 million page views a day according to Quantcast during the election. Today it is down to around 500,000 a day. Western Journalism was blacklisted by Facebook.

 

The Gateway Pundit: TGP was ranked as the 4th most influential conservative news source during the 2016 election. The site in 2016 received nearly a third of its traffic from Facebook. This past weekend Facebook blocked all traffic from recent stories to the website. TGP advertised with Facebook and is another top conservative website blacklisted by the company. TGP is also shadow-banned by Google and frequently attacked and smeared by the liberal media.

 

President Trump Facebook page:  A recent algorithm change has caused President Donald Trump’s engagement on Facebook posts to plummet a whopping 45%. In contrast, Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) do not appear to have suffered a comparable decline in Facebook engagement, reported Breitbart’s Alum Bokhari.

 

Independent Journal Review:  A massive conservative website based on Facebook audience.  The Independent Journal Review (IJR) terminated a number of its employees on Thursday, leaving an unclear future for the millennial-focused conservative website that has recently faced a declining audience.  IDF was also shadow-banned and blacklisted.

 

Breitbart.com:  Breitbart was the most influential conservative news source in 2016 with a massive audience.  Since the election Breitbart is constantly targeted and smeared by far left operations.  Breitbart advertising was targeted by Sleeping Giants and other Soros sites.

 

InfoWars:  Infowars is another dominant conservative site with enormous traffic.  After several years of video production and tens of thousands of video YouTube gave Infowars its third strike this week and threatens to shut the YouTube Channel down.

 

Rightside Broadcasting: This YouTube Channel had millions of views before the election.  Since 2016 YouTube has shadow-banned all of their videos.  YouTube has classified its videos of President Trump at a rally as hate speech.  YouTube has demonetized hundreds of its videos.  YouTube hides its videos.  Income for the site is down 95% since the election.

 

Natural News: A very prominent health website and the world’s top source on natural health. The site receives tens of thousands of readers every day. YouTube wiped out over 1,700 videos covering everything from nutrition, natural medicine, history, science and current events.

 

From a reader: You Tube deleted Natural News Channel. It’s conservative and full of info on health, too. I took a screen shot. I’m very upset. My husband has aggressive cancer from. Agent Orange and I depended on this channel for his diet among other things. The man, Mike Adams, is literally a genius, and I mean literally, and he is very conservative.

 

Prager Report:  PragerU, a conservative educational site, is suing Google and its subsidiary YouTube, accusing the video site of censoring its online videos because of their political leanings.  YouTube has banned several of its videos including segments on abortion and Islam.   Prager U has a massive conservative audience in the millions.

 

Pamela Geller.com Pamela is well-known for speaking out against radical Islam.  ISIS has threatened to behead her several times.  During the election PG had over 100,000 daily views from Facebook.  Today Facebook has shut down most of her traffic.  Her website suffered serious losses in revenue since the election.

 

Diamond and Silk: Pro-Trump YouTube sensations have a suit against YouTube. The Trump supporters announced in August 2017 that 95% of their videos have been demonetized on YouTube.

 

This list is derived from March 2018. Indeed, I just receive an email Alert from ACT for America that Youtube has pulled videos. The ACT email states according to Youtube rules, this video removal counts as a strike. The email doesn’t specify how many strikes have been placed on ACT for America, but the rules state three-strikes and the Youtube Channel is removed.

 

The most recent video related to reporting on the Islamic cult compound being busted for child abuse and training kids to be school shooters among other things. Youtube called the video report HATE SPEECH.

 

ACT for America began a petition to protest the Youtube action. Other than validation for ACT choices, I am unsure how much effect such a petition will have.

 

What needs to happen is to have Conservative and Counterjihad writers and organizations ban [maybe “ban” is the wrong word for this instance – maybe “group] together, perhaps with some kind of joint-petition with the goal of influencing legislation.

 

Below is the ACT email Alert about unjust Youtube censorship.

Big tech companies are using their power and influence to censor the conservative voice. ACT for America has experienced this first hand over the last few weeks.

 

First, YouTube removed an ACT for America video that dated all the way back to 2012 – in the process of removing the video, YouTube applied a “strike” to our account. If an account receives three strikes in a 90-day period, the account is expelled from YouTube. This is problematic because YouTube is the ONLY major platform to share videos from and if ACT for America were to lose our YouTube channel – we would be at a serious disadvantage to other organizations.

 

Youtube Attention Warning

 

Most recently, I called Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, the terrorist who was just charged for training young children in New Mexico to shoot up schools, “sick and depraved.” Calling a terrorist who takes pleasure in training young children to kill people “sick and depraved” should not be controversial. However, Facebook did not agree. Within just a few hours of posting about the accused terrorist, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, my account was suspended for 24 hours for violating Facebook’s policy regarding “hate speech.” Yes, that’s right – I was suspended from Facebook for calling a terrorist “sick and depraved.”

 

Fortunately, Twitter did not find my post to violate their hate speech policies – you can take a look at my post below:

 

Screenshot Brigitte Gabriel report on depraved Muslim Terrorist

 

That’s the reality we live in right now with big tech companies. Kathy Griffin can pose with a decapitated head of our President and receive no punishment, but if I call a terrorist sick and depraved I get suspended for hate speech. These Orwellian “hate speech” policies are being implemented with the explicit purpose to silence conservative voices.

Banning Alex Jones?


Justified Only If…

 

John R. Houk

Alex Jones is literally being censored on every digital media format I can think of.

 

I have to be clear. I am not a supporter or big fan of Mr. Jones. Many of his Conspiracy Theories propagated from his soapbox are just plain outlandish and crazy.

 

The massive digital censorship Jones is accused of is hate-speech. Frankly, as outlandish and offensive Jones can be I am not surprised the hate-speech accusations are levelled against him.

 

I do have a couple of problems with the censorship.

 

ONE: The same media platforms censoring Jones allow Muslims to spew Jew-Hatred and promote physical harm to Jews and other non-Muslims. However, when a non-Muslim points out Islamic tenets and Muslim history demonstrate violent hatred for all things non-Muslim specifying Jews, Christians and polytheists. Militant homosexuals overtly express hatred toward Biblical Values Christians yet will censor Biblical Values Christians for supporting the Bible’s labelling the homosexual practice a sin against God’s Word. In essence this is censorship hypocrisy.

 

TWO: The same media platforms rarely if ever censor Left-Wing calls for violence against Conservatives yet they will censor Conservatives refuting a violent Leftist agenda. For example Maxine Walters advocating Leftists to disrupt reputed Conservative meetings and Conservatives living their private lives at open-to-the-public venues. Astonishingly to date, Conservative individuals have refused to respond with self-defense violence for Leftist provocation. I’m a disabled dude and I don’t know if I would exhibit such self-restraint to respond with action if someone shouting directly in front of my face.

 

I hate defending Alex Jones because I am convinced he has used actual hate-speech; however look at some of phrases the digital media platforms label as hate-speech worthy of censorship via banning:

 

The resident Jew, Leftist Jews, Jewish Mafia (Alex Jones Accused Of Anti-Semitism, Sexual Harassment; By Aiden Pink; Forward.com; 3/1/18)

 

The same article on Forward.com also illustrates actual forms of hate-speech via sexual harassment which is unacceptable but demonstrated on Alex Jones programs.

 

I don’t know what Alex Jones other than the vague accusation of the kind of speech the digital platforms call hatred or inciting violence:

 

“… the stated reason for the ban on his content is not defamation but “hate speech” against Muslims, transgender people, and other groups.” (Booting Alex Jones from social media wasn’t wrong, but it could be dangerous; By Cathy Young; USA Today; 8/8/18 9:03 a.m. ET)

 

If the hate-speech was critical of a belief system corresponding to Islam or the LGBTQ agenda, then said hate-speech violation is an absurd accusation. If Jones said something dimwitted such as maybe, “hunt down the camel jockeys and give them a tasted of their own medicine” or “rope the fudge-packer and drag the shem down the road”. Those kinds of phrases are indeed inciting violence and is a good reason for censuring and/or banning.

 

Here is the Joseph Farah email (which is also a bit of a fundraiser) that inspired my thoughts.

First, they came for Alex Jones …

The pretense and subtlety are over, ‘Digital Cartel’ now overtly attacking ‘offensive’ voices

I’ve been warning everyone who would listen about the greatest threat to freedom of speech, freedom of the press and freedom of religion in America today.

It’s not government.

Instead, the overt attack on America’s First Amendment comes from the corporate behemoth internet gatekeepers who are in ideological lockstep with each other – from Google to YouTube to Facebook to Twitter to Apple to Amazon.

This week, YouTube and Facebook followed Apple’s lead in banishing Alex Jones, the iconic, high-energy voice that rails against globalism and the Deep State daily on radio, podcasts and his own Infowars TV show. He was an easy target and a predictable one – a controversial figure, without doubt, and a high-profile one with a sizable following.

Not everyone wants to defend Alex Jones – certainly not everything he says.

Yet, the First Amendment wasn’t crafted by America’s founding geniuses to protect tepid, non-controversial speech. It was crafted to protect just this kind of fiery dialogue – the kind that offends some people, some sensibilities. Alex Jones is a good choice to start the censorship juggernaut rolling if you think like the Southern Poverty Law Center. And one thing Apple, Google, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Amazon all have in common is their love of, reverence for, and partnerships with this extremist band of smear merchants who never met anyone right of center that they didn’t label a “hater,” a “fascist,” a “Nazi” or a “racist” – including, of course, the current president of the United States.

So, first the Digital Cartel came for Alex Jones.

Who will be next? I don’t know, but I don’t plan to find myself in the position in which Martin Niemöller found himself in Nazi Germany. He’s most famous for this prescient quotation: “First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me – and there was no one left to speak for me.”

I’m going to defend Alex Jones’ right to say what he wants – even if I sometimes, or even often, find myself in disagreement with him. And I’m going to condemn this cabal of bloated mega-corporations imposing their ideology on America’s most vital public square – the digital media.

Maybe you say, “Well, Farah, don’t these corporations have the absolute right to approve and disapprove of the viewpoints they carry – just like you do?” The answer may be surprising: No, they don’t. None of these conglomerates are publishers, content producers, part of the “press.” They are more akin to “utilities” – like the telephone companies of old, or the electricity producers who have a public obligation to be fair and neutral in offering the services they provide to all, without regard to race, religion and ideology. They don’t have to like Alex Jones. They don’t have to listen to Alex Jones. But if they are going to hold these privileged positions of making lots of money by distributing all manner of content, data and information to the public, they dare not think of themselves as ideological gatekeepers against “offensive” political speech. And they better not designate the disgraced partisan hacks of the SPLC as their content cops, which is precisely what they have done – all of them!

I know I sound like a broken record on this theme, but I’m going to keep pounding on it until the public catches on to the threat these trillion-dollar monopolies pose to America’s precious institutions of free speech, the free press and freedom of religion. We need congressional hearings. We need action in Washington. We need President Trump to recognize who the biggest purveyors of fake news really are. It’s not just CNN and the Huffington Post. It’s their distribution arms – Google, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Apple and Amazon – the Digital Cartel.

It’s time to throw down the gauntlet, draw a marker in the sand, file class-action lawsuits, summon our leaders to action.

Are we going to let this cabal render the First Amendment null and void?

I’ve been telling you how they have attacked WND relentlessly and ruthlessly through its politically and religiously discriminatory algorithms. I’ve told you how they have been coming after the independent media, especially since the 2016 election that so disappointed all of them.

Do you really want to talk about supposed Russian interference in our free society when this powerful monolithic cartel is setting the rules of debate for Americans out in plain sight – openly censoring voices they don’t like while systematically elevating those they do like? What a sick joke!

As for me, I will defend the voices of dissent, and even controversy, as long as I have a soapbox upon which to stand. I know they are coming after me and the world’s first independent online news company, which I founded 21 years ago. Once again, I ask you to stand with me, or else find yourself living in a country you won’t long recognize. No privacy. No freedom.

Please support us, or risk finding yourself living in a very different and scary version of America soon.

Help us to raise a much-needed additional $100,000 through August – our biggest crisis period yet, as we battle for survival against the cartel. We’re already nearly 20 percent of the way there, thanks to many of you. You may not be able to give $1,000 or even $100. But everyone who understands the stakes can contribute $10 or even $3.

 

You can also support WND’s groundbreaking new book, “The Gospel in Every Book of the Old Testament,” with your tax-deductible contributions in any amount to the fabulous missions organization, Gospel for All Nations, which has adopted the project to help spread the truth of the Good News around the world. This book, coming out in hardcover in September, is an important part of WND’s recovery, rebirth and revitalization plan for later this year. Your help with book-printing and marketing expenses will help immensely to weather this storm – not to mention help us distribute this compelling and redemptive “breakthrough Bible book.”
