The Attorney General’s Bizarre Attack on Parents
In early October, Attorney General Merrick Garland issued an unusual directive to the FBI and federal law enforcement officials across the nation to focus on alleged criminal conduct in protests by parents against school boards.
Garland directed the FBI and U.S. attorneys in the next 30 days to convene meetings with federal, state, and local leaders within 30 days to “facilitate the discussion of strategies for addressing threats against school administrators, board members, teachers, and staff,” according to a letter.
And the DOJ made sure that school boards and officials will be trained in how to be claimed as victims who can call on those enforcement mechanisms. From the DOJ press release:
“The Justice Department will also create specialized training and guidance for local school boards and school administrators. This training will help school board members and other potential victims understand the type of behavior that constitutes threats, how to report threatening conduct to the appropriate law enforcement agencies, and how to capture and preserve evidence of threatening conduct to aid in the investigation and prosecution of these crimes.”
Outrage ensued immediately and appropriately from parents and their organizations and commentators who are infuriated that a threat of federal law enforcement is being used to try to scare them out of constitutionally protected speech.
Many parents across the country have spoken out recently with unprecedented anger in unprecedented numbers at school board meetings and beyond. Many of their complaints have been about Critical Race Theory in classrooms, mask mandates, and explicit materials for minors about sexuality and gender.
Garland’s directive came one day after a North Carolina school board adopted a policy that would discipline or dismiss teachers if they incorporate critical race theory into their teaching of the history of the United States.
While most of our major cities have a soaring problem with murder and robbery, we have Garland worried about unruly parents at a school board meeting. I read several stories on this issue, and not once did someone cite an example of a meeting that involved violent crime.
Keep in mind that a real crime requires violence or a threat to commit either violence or some other illegal act. But most of the offensive conduct being referenced by the media and school officials is not criminal. Is it criminal to say, for example, “we will get you,” or “we will not forget this,” or “your career in education is dead”?
The Attorney General has no business involving himself in school boards’ crime problems. This action is like the Coast Guard becoming concerned about parking violations in North Dakota. If there are any issues with matters at school board meetings, it should be the concern of local police or city administrators.
Several people in Washington have called Garland for his odd directive. “Garland knows this is dangerous nonsense. I personally know that he knows it.” That’s from Andrew McCarthy, who worked under Garland in the DOJ.
McCarthy further wrote that “Garland incorrectly — indeed, outrageously for someone of his experience as a Justice Department official and federal appellate judge — claimed that free-speech principles yield not only to “threats of violence” but also to “efforts to intimidate individuals based on their views.”
Republican Congressman for Colorado’s 4th District, Ken Buck, has penned an excellent reply for Garland’s overreach, taking apart the AG’s “weaponization” of the DOJ point by point…
“Your memorandum is a politically-motivated abuse of power and displays a lack of reasoned, sound judgment… confronting parents to oppose the views of the Biden administration and its socialist agenda…”
At any other time, Garland would be forced by outrage to apologize for this type of action. Because a special level of stupidity has taken over America, he was not forced to back down. At a recent Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Garland said the directive was part of “a rising tide of violence” targeting a range of public figures, from teachers and election administrators to members of Congress and the media. We need to fear out-of-control government leaders 10 times more than we do crime waves.
It is so fortunate that the Republican senators refused to vote on Garland’s nomination when Obama selected him as his last Supreme Court candidate. Garland would vote with the other lefty justices, so we could have already lost many of our liberties to this man.
The actions by Garland show why we are slowly losing our nation to the leftist agenda. Most of them always vote for what the party wants. They are of one giant collective mind on most issues. Once there is enough of them to take full control, freedom will end in America.
“When the righteous increase, the people rejoice, but when the wicked rule, the people groan” (Proverbs 29:2, ESV).
Pope at Apex of Antichrist’s Arrival
Like it or not, the pope of the Roman Catholic Church, in the world’s view, represents the vast body that view calls Christendom. Increasingly, the current pope is in the news and leading the way in globalization.
I receive an email newsletter at least three times a week from a source called These Last Days Ministries. It is immersed in Catholicism in every aspect, including Mariology and all that idolatrous system entails. Yet those who put out the newsletter seem to hold to the pre-Trib view of Bible prophecy. They believe in the Rapture, I presume. However, it is the Rapture of all within Catholicism they embrace—again, I presume.
There is one thing sure about this group we can agree. Well, maybe several things…
They see this present world system as being on the trajectory toward globalism, and as being a precursor to the Antichrist regime. They believe the COVID-19 matter is a tool contrived to help achieve that world order. One other thing, and this is something they consistently bring to the forefront in their newsletters. They don’t like this pope and believe him to be, if not the false prophet of Revelation 13, certainly an anti-Christian, from the Roman Catholic viewpoint. I can agree to these things without reservation.
In that regard, I maintain the title of this commentary is most appropriate: “Pope at Apex of Antichrist’s Arrival.”
These Last Days Ministries sends out many “prophecies” given by those who they say receive such messages directly from God or from some saint—again, I presume. These, of course, are of no interest to yours truly. But the news articles they send are often more on the mark than many articles I receive from other sources. With regard to this present pope being at the forefront of the globalist assault on America and the world, one item I recently found in my in-box spotlights, in my opinion, the Vatican’s current diabolical collusion with the powers and principalities of Ephesians 6:12.
Three Swiss Guards have resigned and three others have been suspended after refusing to comply with a Vatican mandate that they get the COVID-19 vaccination.
The Swiss Guards, colloquially known as the Pope’s bodyguards, had previously been ordered “to protect their health and that of the others they come into contact with as part of their service” by getting the jab.
The mandate was part of a broader instruction to all Vatican employees to get the COVID shot or face losing their jobs.
“Besides the three guardsmen sent back to Switzerland, at least three others were suspended from active duty after they agreed to vaccinate but have yet to receive their jabs,” reports RT.
The fact that there is no religious exemption against taking the vaccine within the Vatican tells you everything you need to know about the Vatican and the Pope.
Pope Francis has repeatedly amplified pro-vaccination narratives and refused to extend any understanding to Catholics who are hesitant to take the jab.
The Pontifical Academy for Life, the official bioethics academy of the Catholic Church, has also insisted that it is a “moral responsibility” for Catholics to take the vaccine.
“The Vatican has said that it considers it acceptable for Catholics to use vaccines, even those that use stem cell lines from aborted fetuses in their research,” reported the Mail…
As we highlight in the video below, by enforcing vaccine mandates, the Pope is also enforcing vaccine passports, which some Catholics would argue represent something not too dissimilar from the Mark of the Beast from the book of Revelations [The article writer’s misspelling].
Wow, so Christian! (“Pope’s Swiss Guards Resign over Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccinati,” Paul Joseph Watson, Summit.news, 10/4/21)
Many among the Bible prophecy community—both of the pre-Trib belief and of other views—have long thought this pope to possibly be the False Prophet of Revelation 13—despite his advancing age. We can all agree that this pope certainly proclaims teachings contrary to the teachings of God’s Holy Word.
He has said on more than several occasions that there other ways to God, Heaven, and salvation of the soul than through belief in Jesus Christ alone. He has backed up those political minions in high places within the Catholic Church, giving them a pass on the murder of millions of babies through the abortion process. He has embraced at every opportunity the climate-change madness and the worship of Mother Earth and the Gaia mantra that we must all come together to save the planet.
He joins the totally reprobate purveyors of insanity who demand that all must either submit to an experimental, highly questionable injection or be excluded from the formerly normal activities of the compliant human community.
This, of course, comes very close indeed to what God has said Antichrist and his False Prophet will demand. Again, our article’s heading is not far from the truth!
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (Revelation 13:16–17)
