Portland braces itself for violent clashes between right-wing and antifa protesters – a rally organized Saturday by Patriot Prayer leader Joey Gibson was expected to be the third to roil Portland this summer. Two previous events ended in bloody fistfights and riots, and one counterprotester was sent to the hospital with a skull fracture. This time, Gibson changed the venue from a federal plaza outside U.S. District Court to a waterfront park so some of his Oregon supporters can carry concealed weapons as they demonstrate. Chartered buses will bring participants from Vancouver, Washington — where Gibson lives — to downtown Portland with armed security on board. The Portland Police Bureau said Friday that protesters should expect to see a significant police presence including bomb-sniffing dogs and checkpoints where weapon screenings will occur. Patriot Prayer also has held rallies in many other cities around the U.S. West, including Berkeley, California, that have drawn violent reactions.

A fairy tale for our time: Bishop Bruskewitz heroically fought the pro-gay bishops’ document Always Our Children written by homosexual priest activist James Schexnayder. It’s an important issue to address – — especially when one finds bishops promoting the very activity, same sex behavior, which so often involves abuse of young men and boys. So common is that abuse that there is a gay lexicon for it. Young men, inexperienced in homosexual activity, are called “chickens” and their predators “chickenhawks.” Cardinal McCarrick was one of the chickenhawks, but he is certainly not the only one. And it would be prudent of the laity to be on guard and watch for the signs that likely identify them: pandering to the homosexual agenda and dissenting from Church teaching. Some of these evil men make no bones about who they are like Fr. James Schexnayder, the attributed author of the horrible USCCB document, Always Our Children, that had to be corrected by the Vatican. Even after correction it is a destructive document that supports the gay agenda.

Richard Stengel, a former high-level U.S. government official, head of the office for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs at the State Department from 2013 to 2016, former editor of Time Magazine and a regular pundit on MSNBC, said at a Council on Foreign Relations forum about “fake news,” that he “supports the use of propaganda on American citizens.” He then continued; “Basically, every country creates their own narrative story and, you know, my old job at the State Department was what people used to joke as the ‘chief propagandist’ job”. In 2013, Congress passed legislation allowing the federal government to fund and create propaganda they knew could be used to manipulate Americans. The Smith-Mundt Modernization Act overturned a prohibition against domestic propaganda that had been in place since 1948. This act was passed as a result of a series of events in American history that drew the concern of those who wanted to secure a free press and the freedom of speech of the American people.

Unsuspecting individuals and parents along with their children around the world are being unwittingly and shockingly exposed to the growing number of highly-publicized events such as World Naked Bike Rides (WNBR), in which participants flout their nudity as a form of “political protest” to promote a “more body-positive world.” Casting all modesty aside, to draw attention to themselves the riders use bullhorns, boomboxes, musical instruments and other forms of public address systems to ensure that their exhibitionism does not go unnoticed. The party often continues at local parks and other public venues, where the highly-visible nudists dance to bands and engage in body painting contests.
The nudist bicycle parades have expanded from events in 28 cities in 10 countries on four continents in 2004, to events in 74 cities in 17 countries in 2010. This year’s 11th annual WNBR in St. Louis featured a striptease dance, with hundreds of participants wearing nothing or next to nothing as they engaged in a costume contest, a drag show, and provocative dancing.
Those of a more traditional mindset were surprised at the near universal positive portrayal of the blatant nude romps in the media. The Wikipedia article – which unabashedly featured full-frontal nudity – described the “colorful and creative nakedness in repressed societies” as all about “establishing and projecting a positive self-image; and rejecting shame.” WNBR was “a ride for self-empowerment.”
Not all those who were exposed – often unwillingly – to the lewd spectacle found it an enlightening experience. While enjoying the sights of the city while on vacation in St. Louis on July 21, John Ellis was enjoying dinner downtown with his family. As they left they found their way blocked by the disrobed promenade. Appalled, he writes that the “World Naked Bike Riders in St. Louis Exposed Penises and Vaginas, Sexually Molesting My Kids.” Some of the bike riders, he writes, “flagrantly stood up on the pedals and flaunted their nudity to the waiting cars. In legal terms, I’m pretty sure that is referred to as ‘indecent exposure.’”
If Ellis imagined that he could expect law enforcement to deal with the nudists, he was sadly mistaken. In Missouri it is illegal “to expose your genitalia to others in public, thereby alarming them. This crime is referred to as “sexual misconduct.” In Missouri, along with other states, purposefully exposing your genitals to children is a serious crime.
Astonishingly, Ellis reports that “the St. Louis Police Department was unable (or unwilling) to do anything about the fact that my kids were molested and violated by the St. Louis Naked Bike Ride.” The officer he reported the offense to “dismissively said, ‘We can only enforce laws that we see or have evidence of [being broken].’”
In other words, unless Ellis could somehow provide the names of the individuals who had exposed themselves to his children, the officer “couldn’t do anything about it.” Even though technically the bike riders were required to cover their genitals, according to Ellis at least 50 percent of the bike riders violated that rule, “but the St. Louis Police Department shrugged it off. In fact, during the parade, St. Louis Police officers were escorting those guilty of indecent exposure.”
The exponential growth of WNBR and similar events in which full male and female nudity is paraded, in the virtual complete absence of public outcry, would never have been countenanced until recent years, and signals a disturbing attack upon basic human modesty —and the celebration of the lasciviousness that is the antithesis of Judeo-Christian society.
A pastor who has started hundreds of churches in Pakistan, where he suffered persecution for his faith, has chronicled his extraordinary journey in a new book where he says that divine healings and prophetic dreams are leading many Muslims to Jesus Christ. Pastor M El Masih, who started Cry of the Persecuted Church and now lives with his family in the United States, shared in an interview with The Christian Post some of his most difficult challenges growing up in Pakistan, where he studied and followed Islam and the Quran for years. In his book, From Persecution to the Promised Land, Masih, who has spoken in thousands of churches and universities, explains that he grew up in a nominally Christian family but embraced Islam at one point in his pursuit of truth, even becoming a teacher at an Islamic high school.

1) The transgender revolution is oppressive. As reported on July 16 on Lifesite News, “Failing to refer to a gender-confused student, professor, or staffer by his or her ‘preferred’ pronouns could become a fireable or expulsion-worthy offense at the University of Minnesota, according to proposed guidelines currently under consideration.” It is not enough to allow a biological male to identify as a female. Hardly. Society must conform, or else. If “he” now identifies as “she” (or “xe” or “ze”) and you fail to use the right pronoun, you will be punished. This is already the law in New York City. And Canada has taken steps to make this kind of enforced speech the law across the country. This cannot succeed in the long-term. Society will push back. 2) The transgender revolution is irrational. As a result of trans activism, tampons are now available in some college campus bathrooms. After all, we are told, men menstruate as well. Yes, a woman who identifies as a man but still gets her monthly period is actually a menstruating man.

Welcome to #PedoGate: the idea is simple, yet completely ridiculous. The elite, the Illuminati, or whatever it is that you want to call them are all a part of a secret organization that preys on young children, either for sexual purposes or, in some circles, to conduct human sacrifice to some sort of Luciferian deity. Yes, this is an actual thing that people believe. In fact, much of the fabled “Q Anon” conspiracy theory revolves around the idea that President Trump and Robert Mueller are secretly working together in order to expose this incredibly disturbing behavior. Seeing as these fringe-theorists are basing their insinuations off of mere scraps of information, it becomes necessary to absolutely scour the media for evidence of this extraordinary theory. In the case of Disney-connected director James Gunn, however, they didn’t need to look all that hard. Gunn “apparently deactivated his personal website in the midst of the online firestorm[.]” One of the reasons might be the prior existence of a video on the site that, according to the site’s own url, was titled: “100-pubescent-girls-touch-themselves.” [Note: Breitbart News has not viewed the video, would not view the video, and will not link the url, even though it has been deactivated.] Read more: https://constitution.com/disney-director-is-latest-trophy-in-pedogate-hunt-for-great-awakening/
