It CAN Happen Here!

This isn’t freedom! It is totalitarianism! And it must be resisted!

I’ve mentioned before that I have heard from a lot of “Americans-by-choice” – people who came to this country to escape tyranny – warning against the radical left.

They are modern day Paul Reveres, sounding the alarm that the enemies they fled in their native countries have reached our shores. Of course, I don’t mean actual soldiers, but I do mean Marxist and anti-American enemy ideologies.

Earlier this week, Xi Van Fleet stood before the Loudon County School Board in northern Virginia, just outside our nation’s capital. Xi warned the public that what she is seeing in America today is exactly what she witnessed during communist China’s Cultural Revolution.

Here’s what she told the left-wing board members:

“You are now teaching, training our children to be social justice warriors and to loathe our country and our history. Growing up in Mao’s China, all this seems very familiar. The communist regime used the same critical theory to divide people. The only difference is they used class instead of race…

"We were taught to denounce our heritage, and Red Guards destroyed anything that is not communist… statues, books and anything else. We were also encouraged to report on each other, just like the Student Equity Ambassador program and the bias reporting system.

"This is indeed the American version of the Chinese Cultural Revolution. The critical race theory has its roots in cultural Marxism. It should have no place in our school.”

Many Americans look at the oppression around the world, shake their heads and say, “Well, at least that could never happen here.”

My friends, it can happen here. It is happening here.

Antifa radicals are destroying statues of our founders.

Leftists routinely disrespect our flag and national anthem – the very symbols that are supposed to unite us.

Books that don’t toe the approved ideological line are banned.

Speech that isn’t approved by our Big Tech censors is banned.

Views that run afoul of our elites can cost you your job and livelihood.

News that embarrasses the privileged political class is banned.

We’re being fed a steady diet of fake news and propaganda that only benefits one party. (See next item.)

This isn’t freedom! It is totalitarianism! And it must be resisted!

Please help us defend America from the Marxist left!

Media Malfeasance

Remember the controversy that erupted in the middle of 2020 riots when Donald Trump left the White House and walked across the street to visit the historic St. John’s Church? He visited the historic church because radical leftists had attempted to burn it down.

But before Trump’s visit, Park Police and other law enforcement agencies cleared the violent mob out of Lafayette Square. Within hours the media was promoting the narrative that Trump used tear gas on “peaceful protestors” for a “photo op.”

Under pressure from Democrats in Congress, the Interior Department launched an investigation of the Park Police. Wedensday, the department’s inspector general released the findings of his months-long investigation.

And guess what? The report found no evidence to support the left’s fake narrative. According to ABC News:

“The review ultimately found Park Police had been planning to clear the area for days to install anti-scale fencing and that the decisions on the ground were not changed because of the president or White House’s plans.”

Donald Trump did not clear Lafayette Square for a photo op. That’s another left-wing lie, just like the disgusting smear that Trump called neo-Nazis “very fine people.”

By the way, a new study regarding the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine against COVID-19 appears to prove that President Trump was right all along. The left mercilessly mocked Trump for promoting it, and they were outraged when he took it himself.

Biden vs. Boris

Joe Biden’s first overseas trip as president is getting off to a rocky start. He’s in Great Britain for the G-7 summit, ahead of a meeting with NATO leaders and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

But according to the British media, White House aides are in damage control mode after reports that Biden ordered U.S. embassy officials to condemn the position of Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservative government in the ongoing Brexit negotiations, which involve very complex dealings with Northern Ireland.

A top U.S. embassy official reportedly told British Brexit Minister Lord Frost to cool the rhetoric during the talks and to accept “unpopular compromises.”

Labour Party leader Sir Keir Starmer seized on Biden’s attack against Johnson, saying, “We’ve just seen an unprecedented rebuke from President Biden in relation to the negotiations in relation to Northern Ireland.”

Needless to say, Biden’s bungling isn’t going over well. Some Conservative Party leaders are reportedly complaining that our president is “senile.”

I know the liberal media worship Joe Biden as some kind of foreign policy genius just because he chaired the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for a few years.

But let me remind you of what Robert Gates, Barack Obama’s defense secretary, once said about Joe Biden, “I think he’s been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.”

Trump Or Abraham?

While we’re on the subject of foreign policy, State Department employees have reportedly been ordered to not call the peace treaties that Donald Trump brokered between Israel and five Muslim nations the “Abraham Accords.” Instead, they are to be called “normalization agreements.”

It’s hard to know exactly what State Department leftists found most offensive. Perhaps it’s because Trump created the name for the deals.

Or perhaps they are offended by Abraham, who was told by God, “I will make you into a great nation… I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”

That was the original “Abraham Accord.”

By the way, a new poll by Christians United for Israel finds the American people standing firmly behind the Jewish state and opposed to a number of Biden Administration policies. For example:

82% of Americans believe it is important for the United States “to support Israel’s sovereignty and existence as a democracy in the Middle East.”

61% of Americans support cutting off funding to the Palestinian Authority “until it stops incentivizing terrorist attacks against Israel.” As we recently reported, the Biden Administration has renewed taxpayer funding of the Palestinian Authority in spite of its continued payments to terrorists and their families.

Only 30% of Americans believe it is a good idea to rejoin the 2015 Obama/Biden nuclear deal with Iran. A solid majority (56%) said we should maintain sanctions on Iran.

I have been honored to partner with Pastor John Hagee and Christians United for Israel for many years now. They are doing incredible work, which has never been more urgently needed!
