Christian Nationalism – Is Dead!

“Longtime anti-LGBT activist Peter LaBarbera, who worked for the Family Research Council and Concerned Women For America and the Illinois Family Institute before going it alone with his own Americans For Truth About Homosexuality, is praising nations like Uganda and Gambia, where homosexuality is punished by life imprisonment (after first considering punishment by the death penalty).  According to Peter, these nations are far better off than the United States.

The premise that Jesus used our Founding Fathers to create a Religious Nation in America, is shot all to hell by the Northwest Ordinance wherein it is made clear Signer Thomas Jefferson – is not FOR the spread of slavery, or, FOR the mistreatment of Indians, and, NOT FOR the theft of their lands. The Founding Fathers of our Democracy did not give Native Americans and Blacks – THE VOTE! How about women. Could they vote?

This Satanic Devil, LaBarbera, wants to import punishment for Homosexuals from a dictatorship – IN THE NAME OF JESUS – who wants to be King of the World and Haven – too! I will make a strong case King Jesus backed the Anglican Church in England – and in America – and the King of Heaven DID NOT WANT a Secular Democracy as established by our Constitution, because, he wanted HIS PASTORS to keep their slaves. oppress women, and commit genocide in their bloody desire for more earthly property. Did Emperor Jesus – START THE TREACHEROUS CIVIL WAR?

MILLIONS OF WHITE PEOPLE want their Nation to be a MEMBER OF NATO so they can destroy the evil Gay Bashers, Puppet Putin, and Killer Kirill. White People are spending billions of dollars to STOP the utter destruction by GAY HATERS – who need to be SUED – forced to pay for damages. I would name all the Fake Pastors in our Secular Democracy, as CO-DESTROYERS, and, TRAITORS!

NATO needs to FUND an Anti-Christian Traitor and Terrorist organization in order to STOP ‘The Enemy Within Our Democracies – WHO PUTIN COUNTS ON!

By Ralph Z. Hallow – The Washington Times – Thursday, November 12, 2015

Backed by the likes of Ted Cruz, Bobby Jindal and Newt Gingrich, evangelical Christian organizer David Lane set out in January to put the pastor into American politics.

He began implementing a plan to restore to the nation basic Christian values that he thinks have been disappearing into the mists of secular materialism and political correctness.

His goal was to recruit 1,000 pastors across America to start walking the godly talk by campaigning for public office. The project was dubbed “Issachar,” after the Old Testament founder of one of the 12 tribes of Israel.

Lane also has a long history organizing campaigns for religious right candidates and events. In 1991, he spearheaded a front group of African Americans to support the nomination of Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court.  Six years after that, he helped Jerry Falwell launch the National Committee for the Restoration of the Judeo-Christian Ethic.

For most of the past century, America’s conservative Christians and conservative politicians were united in the firm belief that the communist USSR — and later, Russia — was anti-American, anti-God and a threat to the world. In the 1950s, a young Billy Graham preached the Cold War as a holy crusade. In the 1970s, Hal Lindsey’s “The Late Great Planet Earth” claimed the biblical book of Revelation said the Soviet bloc would play a major role in the apocalypse and the second coming of Christ.

But that script has been flipped during the last decade as traditional family values have brought together supporters of “Christian America” and “Holy Russia.” A handful of U.S.-based Christian nonprofits have consistently praised Russian President Vladimir Putin as a global beacon of hope — both for families and for the survival of Christianity.

In February and March 2014, Putin invaded Ukraine and annexed the Crimean Peninsula. The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association featured Putin on the cover of the March 2014 issue of Decision magazine, ignoring the invasion but praising the dictator’s stand protecting children from “propaganda of homosexuality and pedophilia.” 

“To be clear, I’m not endorsing President Putin,” wrote Franklin Graham, BGEA’s president and CEO, in the 2014 cover story. “Isn’t it sad, though, that America’s own morality has fallen so far that on this issue — protecting children from any homosexual agenda or propaganda — Russia’s standard is higher than our own?”

“I think Russia is the hope for the world right now,” said Larry Jacobs, managing director of the Rockford, Illinois-based World Congress of Families, in 2014. Russia’s invasion of Crimea led WCF to cancel its 2014 gathering in Moscow that year, but the nonprofit continues to partner with Russia’s religious and political leaders.

“The Russians are not our problem,” said the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer in a 2018 post about then-President Trump and the 2016 election.

Anglicans and Empire. One of the closest connections between religion and the American Revolution involved the Anglicans. These people belonged to the official Church of England, which enjoyed the protection of the state and was supported by tax money. In five of the thirteen colonies the Anglican Church was the legally established religion in the 1750s and 1760s. Anglicanism was a version of Protestantism, distinguished by the fact that the king of England was the official religious leader as well as the head of state. Theologically it was closely related to the Calvinist reformed tradition, the religion of the Puritans who settled New England, but Anglicans were more moderate in tone and placed greater importance on more-elaborate rituals. As a belief and a practice, then, it fit comfortably among the varieties of Christian religions practiced by most early Americans. The feature that most set Anglicans apart from other American Protestants was the presence of bishops as religious leaders. Most reformed Protestant denominations were congregational, giving authority to individual churches to govern their own affairs, without interference from any central authority, such as the Pope exercised in Roman Catholicism. Anglicans rejected the authority of the Pope but did not abolish the bishops’ role in church government. Anglicanism was among the most hierarchical of early American religious groups, with individual congregations or parishes run by a priest, who was answerable to a bishop. It also was intimately connected to Britain’s effort to shape an empire out of the individualistic American colonies. Most people considered church and state to be mutually supportive and believed that one could not exist for long without the other. This idea was fundamentally challenged by the American Revolution, which ended with the separation of church and state. In the 1750s, however, the British tried to strengthen their political control over the colonies through religious means that involved the Anglican Church.

As a result of the looming crisis in 1775, the Royal Governor of VirginiaLord Dunmoreissued a proclamation that promised freedom to indentured servants and slaves who were able to bear arms and join his Loyalist Ethiopian Regiment. Many of the slaves in the South joined the Loyalists with intentions of gaining freedom and escaping the South. About 800 did so; some helped rout the Virginia militia at the Battle of Kemp’s Landing and fought in the Battle of Great Bridge on the Elizabeth River, wearing the motto “Liberty to Slaves”, but this time they were defeated. The remains of their regiment were then involved in the evacuation of Norfolk, after which they served in the Chesapeake area. Eventually the camp that they had set up there suffered an outbreak of smallpox and other diseases. This took a heavy toll, putting many of them out of action for some time. The survivors joined other Loyalist units and continued to serve throughout the war. African-Americans were often the first to come forward to volunteer and a total of 12,000 African Americans served with the British from 1775 to 1783. This forced the Patriots to also offer freedom to those who would serve in the Continental Army, with thousands of Black Patriots serving in the Continental Army.[31]

Americans who gained their freedom by fighting for the British became known as Black Loyalists. The British honored the pledge of freedom in New York City through the efforts of General Guy Carleton, who recorded the names of African Americans who had supported the British in a document called the Book of Negroes, which granted freedom to slaves who had escaped and assisted the British. About 4,000 Black Loyalists went to the British colonies of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, where they were promised land grants. They founded communities across the two provinces, many of which still exist today. Over 2,500 settled in Birchtown, Nova Scotia, instantly making it the largest free black community in North America. However, the long period of waiting time to be officially given land grants that were given to them and the prejudices of white Loyalists in nearby Shelburne who regularly harassed the settlement in events such as the Shelburne Riots in 1784, made life very difficult for the community.[32] In 1791 the Sierra Leone Company offered to transport dissatisfied black Loyalists to the nascent colony of Sierra Leone in West Africa, with the promise of better land and more equality. About 1,200 left Nova Scotia for Sierra Leone, where they named the capital Freetown.[32] After 1787 they became Sierra Leone’s ruling elite.[citation needed] About 400 to 1,000 free blacks who joined the British side in the Revolution went to London and joined the free black community of about 10,000 there.[citation needed]

In the past few months, the Latter-day Saint concept of Heavenly Mother has been discussed, debated and disputed in endless conversations online and in person, including in a talk at the faith’s April General Conference.

© Provided by Salt Lake Tribune(File illustration by Amy Lewis | The Salt Lake Tribune)

In apostle Dale Renlund’s speech, he urged members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints not to speculate about the divine feminine but rather stick to what is known in the faith’s Gospel Topics essay about her.

That is still a lot, say authors McArthur Krishna and Bethany Brady Spalding, who posted on YouTube a six-minute video in which interviewees describe what the doctrine means to them.

Clearly, others want to take it beyond official pronouncements.

One somewhat surprising split among proponents, however, has pitted some feminists who celebrate Mother God against some LGBTQ advocates who fear their exclusion from the deity.

In a just-released special issue of Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought, three pieces examine the conflict from various angles.

The solution to the dilemma cannot be to eliminate the physical nature of the feminine deity, Margaret Toscano argues in her article, “In Defense of Heavenly Mother.”

She can be “an indispensable figure and source of hope, comfort, and liberation for all the oppressed, the vulnerable, and the powerless,” Toscano writes. “…But Mormon theology and practice also require Heavenly Mother to be more than a symbol since the embodiment of the divine is a central doctrinal tenet…a coequal of Heavenly Father…a real personage who acts as the Other to the male God.”

Still, it is possible to believe in “an embodied Mother and Father Gods of equal status,” she writes, “while promoting free choice and fluidity of sex, gender, and sexuality for them and their children.”

After all, Toscano notes, the “doctrine of eternal progression implies movement, not statis.”

It is acceptable “within a Mormon framework to accept sex differences as biological realities,” Toscano reasons, “while favoring fluid categories and porous boundaries, rejecting simple dichotomies, and moving to multiple gender identities.”

A ‘queer heavenly family’

Like Toscano, Charlotte Scholl Shurtz rejects the suggestion to remove Mother God’s physicality.

The creation of a “genderless god erases gendered experiences, whether [they] are those of a transgender or a cisgender individual,” Shurtz writes in “A Queer Heavenly Family: Expanding Godhood Beyond a Heterosexual, Cisgender Couple.” “Claiming that a genderless god is inclusive is parallel to claiming that ‘colorblindness’ solves racial issues.”

Shurtz accepts “the premise that gender is an essential characteristic of an individual’s eternal existence and assume[s] that sexuality is similarly essential,” but rejects the gender binary.

“If I, a queer woman, only know the story of God as a cisgender, heterosexual individual or couple,” she asks, “how can I see godliness in myself?”

The writer suggests expanding Mormonism’s “concept of godhood” to include a “queer heavenly family.”

That would offer “hope instead of exclusion,” Shurtz says, and provide a “way to see godliness in all humanity.”

Recognizing such divinity “leads to greater respect, compassion, and affirmation of ourselves and one another, and offers everyone hope for godhood and joy,” she writes. “Without a diverse heavenly family, anyone may struggle to see godliness in themselves or in their earthly family or friends.”

God is ‘they’

The third writer in the series, Blaire Ostler, also builds a case for multiple divinities on Latter-day Saint theology that all humans are gods in embryo.

God is “they” in Mormonism, Ostler writes in “I Am a Child of Gods,” but most believers presume that means the heterosexual couple of a Heavenly Mother and Father.

Yet, for many queer Latter-day Saints, God is “they” because God is “composed of diverse genders, orientations, abilities, races, bodies, and families,” she writes. “God is ‘they’ because if we are all made in the image of God, ‘they’ is the only pronoun we have in English to adequately signify the plurality and diversity that exists within the heavenly family.”

The Latter-day Saint understanding of Heavenly Mother is “carving a path to a more inclusive physicalist theology” but is too limiting as currently described, Ostler believes. “…We are all made in the image of God, which includes queer, intersex, trans, and nonbinary bodies.”

Mortals are not just “children of God,” she writes. “We are children of gods in an endlessly creative, dynamic community of diverse deities reflected in our earthly existence.”

This much is clear from these conversations: Talk of God the Mother in Latter-day Saint theology is not going away — and will likely grow as more and more voices weigh in and speak up.

Johnny Oregon Gets Prepared For Killer Kirill

Here is Pastor McGill getting behind a set of laws, or, edicts, published in 1787 that protects worshippers from being “molested”. By whom – roving bands of atheists? Yes, Native Americans were not Christians. But, the folks that did most of the molesting, was, and still is – Fellow Christians!

Art.3 says you will not “molest” Indians and honor their land and treaties. Did this happen? No. Therefor this contract is null and void. This is another ruse to make the White Christian Man – A BIG VICTIM – so he can get on his cross with his guns and protect the land God-Jesus gave to……..Christians! This divine plan is part of the Manifest Destiny that Jefferson condoned that led to Oregon becoming a State. This has nothing to do with North Carolina – but that slavery was outlawed in the Northwest. Ordinance.

Here’s what I have to say to McGill……Mind your own fucking business, and don’t bring your polluted bullshit to Oregon. Don’t stir up shit – or molest any Oregonian!

McGill appears to be disciple of David Lane. Are these two righteous men eyeballing our election for the next Governor? Are they thinking about strapping on some leather, and getting on the High Noon Train for……Oregon? I challenge them to a Bible Thumpen Contest! Already – I kicked the secular slats from under these Stilted Bigots!

The Free World is at war with the evil men of the cloth who back Putin’s holy war against homosexuals. Christians are not protected by an old Jefferson Act. Do these Bozos for Jesus support Putin?

Article 1 of the Transcript of Northwest Ordinance [1787] pronounces that “No person, demeaning [conducting] himself in a peaceable and orderly manner, shall ever be molested [harassed] on account of his mode of worship or religious sentiments.”

“Evangelical pastors must raise the responsibility of civic participation by registering, mustering and marshaling parishioners to the voting booth on election day. That is, if the secularization of America is to be brought to heel.

Art. 6. There shall be neither slavery nor involuntary servitude in the said territory, otherwise than in the punishment of crimes whereof the party shall have been duly convicted: Provided, always, That any person escaping into the same, from whom labor or service is lawfully claimed in any one of the original States, such fugitive may be lawfully reclaimed and conveyed to the person claiming his or her labor or service as aforesaid.

50 Pastors Run for Local Office in North Carolina to ‘Restore Righteousness’ in Public Square

4:00PM EDT 5/18/2022 ROB VISCHER

Pastor Cameron McGill (Washington Post YouTube channel)

In 2020, Pastor Cameron McGill ran for Bladen County Commissioner and won. This year he’s running again, unopposed.

Pastor McGill was recruited and trained by the American Renewal Project, a group that aims to “restore righteousness in the public square.”

David Lane, the group’s founder and president, says, “Our goal is really 20 pastors in 2022 running for local office. And we’re going to prove the model in North Carolina. According to Lane, McGill is one of 50 North Carolina pastors running for local office in 2022.

“There’s no such thing as the separation of church and state. The First Amendment is to keep the state out of the church,” says Lane. “My goal is to restore America to our Judeo-Christian heritage and reestablish a biblically based culture.”

To motivate pastors to run, Lane has enlisted North Carolina’s Lieutenant Governor, Mark Robinson. Robinson is known for calling it “filth” to teach homosexuality and transsexuality in schools. Some lawmakers on the Left have even called for his resignation. He responded, “I feel compelled to say that word, ‘filth,’ because we have a filth problem in this country right now.”

Lane believes the key to “restore righteousness in the public square” is winning local elections first. “We’re interested in the local races because that’s gonna be where the magic begins,” says Lane. “They don’t need to be running for Congress and governor and U.S. Senate. They need to start out [with] city council, county commissioner, school board if they’re going to be effective.”

When Pastor McGill traveled to Israel with the American Renewal Project, he was inspired to run for office, especially when he witnessed COVID culture and “just how fragile our freedoms have become.” Whenever he makes a decision, he says that he feels the weight of it. “I realize, boy, when I make this move, there’s 30,000 people that are going to pay the consequences for a bad decision and reap the benefits of a good decision,” says McGill.

When Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson addressed the pastors at a recent meeting, he said, “It’s time for us to start standing up like John the Baptist, ready to give our heads for the causes of this glorious freedom that God has given us.” Then he asked, “You gonna join in the fight? Or you gonna sit in the foxhole shaking in your shoes?”

THE AMERICAN RENEWAL PROJECT MISSION

Posted by arp2021 | | Renewal Project News |  |     

The American Renewal Project was founded to give greater currency to the principles laid down by the American Founders. The Project’s mission is to minister to people of faith in their transition from spectators to participants in the cultural arena, with emphasis being placed on religion and morality, the cornerstones of freedom.

In 1784, 1785 and 1787 a similar model was presented, as Congress enacted the ‘Northwest Ordinances’, drafted by Thomas Jefferson. The three acts laid the basis for the admission and incorporation of the Northwest Territory’s constituent parts as states into the union. The Northwest Territory eventually spanned most or large parts of six future states: Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota.

Article 1 of the Transcript of Northwest Ordinance [1787] pronounces that “No person, demeaning [conducting] himself in a peaceable and orderly manner, shall ever be molested [harassed] on account of his mode of worship or religious sentiments.”

Of particular significance, Article 3 starts with: “Religion, morality, and knowledge, being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged.”

Freedom was not an afterthought for the Founders. They understood that freedom requires virtue and virtue requires Christianity. “Daniel Webster, Benjamin Franklin, Benjamin Rush, Samuel Adams, and George Washington echoed the same sentiments, believing that the strength of the republic was dependent upon the morality of her people, and that religion must undergird it.”(1)

We may call into question where such voices are today among the ‘leading lights’ of public education, higher learning, and academia.

Sustaining freedom is not a passive act. “To speak of a passive ‘overcomer’ is to employ words without meaning. To make the believer a mere onlooker of the Lord’s exploits is to reduce him to something less than a moral agent.”(2) Pastors must thus take civic responsibility to the next level if America is to survive.

Lamentably, Christians display a lack of active involvement with modern America. Whereas contemporary pastors may view delivering a Sunday Election sermon as the summum of civic responsibility, a Sunday sermon is not a denomination of political currency. Evangelical pastors must raise the responsibility of civic participation by registering, mustering and marshaling parishioners to the voting booth on election day. That is, if the secularization of America is to be brought to heel.

Dr. Jerry Falwell’s approach in the late 20th-century for registering God’s flock for civic engagement provides an excellent model for voter registration. Two or three times a year Dr. Falwell would announce in the middle of his sermon on the Old-Time Gospel Hour:

“We’re going to take two minutes to do this, I want all of the good citizens of VA who are registered to vote to please stand.” While waving his hand for the ushers to come forward, he would then say: “Now for you good citizens that are seated we are going to get you registered today. Ushers pass out the voter registration cards.”

“Now this is difficult part,” he continued, “you have to know your name and address. Fill them out now, and pass the voter registration card back to the usher, otherwise, it’ll be in your Bible three years from now!”

Hill Dems back-burner Ginni Thomas even as Supreme Court grabs national attention – POLITICO

Outraged Democrats demanded accountability after Virginia Thomas, the conservative activist and wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas also known as Ginni, was revealed pressing top White House officials to overturn the 2020 election. But a cascade of competing crises have since pushed the Thomases out of the headlines, and the fervor for action against them on Capitol Hill appears to have faded.

Rosamond Press

Bankers guilty of usury are purchasing so called Christian leaders who hold public office. The scum of Judas is born in the world and runs for the Senate and Congress so they can protect their Big Earthly Boss who loves piling up vast treasure on earth so Big Boss can hold power over God’s children.

“Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, ‘How hard it is for the rich to enter the Kingdom of God!’ The disciples were amazed at His words. But Jesus said again, ‘Children, how hard it is to enter the Kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God.’” — Mark 10:23-25

Fremont’s Foreign Fighters

The South hated John Fremont – and still does. He made California great, and was the first to free the slaves. His wife, Jessie Benton Fremont, is my kindred. This progressive couple is the San Francisco World’s Fair.

How the war in Ukraine is challenging the long-sought pivot to Asia

From left, Japan’s Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, U.S. President Joe Biden and Germany’s Chancellor Olaf Scholz speak as NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, back, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, and Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau listen during a NATO summit on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in Brussels on March 24, 2022.

President Biden will spend five days in Asia — his first trip to the continent since taking office. He departs for South Korea on Thursday and will then continue on to Japan. Both countries have been vital allies in the United States’ effort to compete with China, but they’ve also proved valuable in holding Russia accountable for its aggression in Ukraine.

Biden, like presidents before him, entered the White House with the mission of reorienting U.S. foreign policy toward Asia. He reportedly has about three times as many people working on the Indo-Pacific as he does on other regions of the globe.

The ultimate goal is to counter China, even if that is sometimes left unsaid publicly. But between the pandemic, the withdrawal from Afghanistan and the war in Ukraine, that goal seems to have, at times, taken a backseat. Experts say Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has posed one of the biggest hurdles to Biden’s foreign policy agenda, but it’s also presented the president with an opportunity to reinforce alliances, not just across the Atlantic, but also across the Pacific.

POLITICS

Biden and major allies are meeting about Russia’s war in Ukraine

“After Russia invaded Ukraine, the administration was very quick to enlist our allies and partners in East Asia … to sanction Russia and to isolate them diplomatically,” said Evan Medeiros, who led Asia policy under former President Barack Obama.

Singapore, South Korea, Australia, and Japan are now all partners in the international coalition to punish Russia for its behavior.

“Korea is closely aligned with the U.S. and the global coalition to put export control measures and economic sanctions against Russia’s military aggression,” Yeo Han-koo, the South Korean trade minister, said in a statement in early March. In fact, experts say if the U.S. had acted on its own, export controls put in place wouldn’t have made much of an impact on Russia, but the support of Asian countries who manufacture key technology has been critical.

Michael Green, who worked on Asia policy in the National Security Council under George W. Bush, says Ukraine has shown that when allies in Asia and allies in Europe unite, they can impose a devastating cost.

“What Ukraine has demonstrated is the United States, and only the United States, has the ability to mobilize an international coalition of the most powerful democracies and economies to punish aggressors,” he added.

That requires not just U.S. investment, but the willingness of allies to join forces. This Asia-Europe-U.S. coalescence is relatively recent.

In previous decades, Japan in particular has been reluctant to needle Russia.

EUROPE

Ukrainian President Zelenskyy to address Japanese parliament

“In 2014, in Crimea, Japan was not aligned despite it being a member of the G7,” said Sheila Smith, an expert on Japanese politics with the Council on Foreign Relations. “It was certainly not aligned on the sanctions piece.”

Despite Japan’s unwillingness to provoke Russia during its 2014 invasion of Ukraine, this time Japan’s leaders have taken a leading role in responding.

“What very early on in this crisis was impressive to me is Prime Minister Kishida defined this not as a European war but as a challenge to the global order,” Smith said.

And one reason, experts say, has nothing to do with Russia — it’s about a neighbor in Asia’s own backyard.

“In recent years, we’ve seen increasing bullying by China,” Green said. “Our Asian allies are watching … there’s concern that the United States doesn’t have the bandwidth to handle crises in both Europe and Asia at the same time.”

Shortly after the invasion of Ukraine, the White House dispatched a delegation of former and defense and national security — including Green and Medeiros — to Taiwan to reassure the self-governed democratic island off the Chinese coast. China has vowed to unify the two and hasn’t ruled out force to do so.

Experts say the Ukraine crisis has accelerated a nascent relationship that was already developing between Europe, the U.S., Asia, and Australia to counter China.

“When I worked on the rebalance, or pivot, in the Obama administration, one of the major challenges, I would say mistakes, that were made was a sense that we were somehow pivoting away from Europe,” said Kurt Campbell, the Biden official in charge of the Indo-Pacific region, in a speech last week at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

POLITICS

Why Biden Is Taking The Rare Step Of Sharing Nuclear Submarine Tech With Australia

Nowadays, he said, there’s a sense of collaboration with Europe to take on the challenges in Asia. Experts point to AUKUS — the security pact established between the U.S., the United Kingdom and Australia last September to share nuclear submarine technology — as a prime example of working across the Atlantic and the Pacific.

“I spend more of my time engaging with European partners around various initiatives in the Indo-Pacific almost than I do with Indo-Pacific partners,” Campbell added.

But the War in Ukraine has also posed major challenges to the administration. It has taken up headspace and resources from a president with finite time.

On Feb. 11, two weeks before Russia invaded Ukraine, the administration released its Indo-Pacific strategy. And now, in the midst of the ongoing war, on the same day the president meets with the leaders of Finland and Sweden to discuss their desire to join NATO, he’ll fly out to Asia.

The juxtaposition of these events shows the dilemma but also the opportunity for Biden.

National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said Wednesday the White House doesn’t see it as tension, but as “mutually reinforcing.”

“There’s a certain level of integration and symbiosis in the strategy we are pursuing in Europe and the strategy we’re pursuing in the Indo-Pacific. And President Biden’s unique capacity to actually stitch those two together is going to be a hallmark of his foreign policy presidency,” Sullivan said.

Still, a key question is whether this transatlantic-transpacific bond is a temporary side effect of Russia’s invasion or a long lasting realignment. And no doubt, there are cracks in the the relationship. On this trip to Asia, Biden will meet with India, a partner that has been unwilling to join the U.S. in punishing Russia.

Moscow-Canada Radio

Called another one!

Johnny Oregon – is on the air! Yeehaw!

OTTAWA — Russia’s Foreign Ministry says it is shutting down CBC/Radio-Canada’s Moscow bureau and revoking the accreditations and visas of its journalists.

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Wednesday that the move is in retaliation for Ottawa’s ban on Kremlin-backed RT, formerly known as Russia Today, and RT France from being broadcast in Canada.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Russia’s move was unacceptable, and that Canada would continue to stand up for a free press.

“Obviously the truth, responsible journalism, sharing what’s actually going on with citizens, is a deep threat to Vladimir Putin and his illegal war and his authoritarian tendencies … it’s unfortunate, but not surprising, that he’s trying to shut down strong journalistic institutions.”

CBC News Editor-in-Chief Brodie Fenlon said CBC/Radio-Canada is deeply disappointed to learn of the news.

“Our journalism is completely independent of the Canadian government and we are saddened to see the Russian government conflate the two,” he said on Twitter.

Fenlon noted that the broadcaster, the only Canadian news organization with a permanent presence in the country, has maintained a Moscow bureau for 44 years. He said this was the first time to the organization’s knowledge that a foreign government has forced the closure of one of its bureaus.

“This appears to be another step by Russia to stifle a free and independent press within its borders.”

In March, CBC/Radio-Canada said it had temporarily suspended reporting in Russia because of new legislation in the country that “appears to criminalize independent reporting on the current situation in Ukraine and Russia.”

And in April, Russia widened a list of sanctioned Canadians, adding 61 more people including several journalists such as Globe and Mail international correspondent Mark MacKinnon, and National Post columnist John Ivison, as well as the editor-in-chief of the Globe and the president and CEO of CBC.

Canada’s broadcast regulator removed RT and RT France from its authorized list of programming services and stations in mid-March after it found programming targeting Ukrainians constituted abusive comment.

The move came after the federal government formally asked the CRTC to review the presence of the broadcaster on Canadian airwaves on March 2. 

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said at the time that action was needed to combat falsehoods and disinformation by Russia about the invasion of Ukraine, including on social media.

Numerous other countries, and the entire European Union, have also banned RT broadcasts.

When I awoke yesterday, the first thing I was going to do was e-mail Senator Wyden, and suggest the U.S. Government fund KYIV. Then I got distracted by Betsy Johnson. When I went shopping – I was attacked by a witch. I conclude – real evil is about the world! Good people must stay focused!

Dr. Senator; Two days ago I read an article about ‘Putin’s Brain’. Alexander Dugin has been called Putin’s Rasputin. I listened to a video of him talking about how Russia is entitled to rule the world, and invade the Ukraine, because they are a physically BIG nation. Because we are a SMALLER nation, we should back off and let Russia does what it wants. I googled the size of Alaska, Canada, and the United States and WE are just as big. There has been talk about Russia getting Alaska back, because we OWE them. What I want the U.S. Government to do, is fund my idea for a radio station – stationed in Alaska, that is close to his royal bigness, and, taunt Putin’s Giant Brain. We need to open a Western Front. I tried to save Armstrong’s KORE radio station. How about….KYIV Radio?

Thank You

I Concede

I will not be the next Governor of Oregon. I concede.

Below is a video of my Republican opponents who look like they came to my State for the Creamed Corn Convention – that is traditionally held in Nebraska. We get promises to deal with the homeless, but, only I got frontline battle scars. Are those images of happily married Lesbian Couples?

Threat From Alley Valkyrie

Posted on January 8, 2015 by Royal Rosamond Press

Here is the threat I received from Alley Valkyrie ten months ago. I did not know her. Belle did not tell me to stop calling her or write about her until after I received this threat that was carried out.

“I’m going to make this very simple for you. I don’t know if you know who I am, but I sure as hell know who you are, and when you fuck with my friends, you fuck with me. Stop writing about Belle or I am going to make your life very difficult. I mean it. If I see one more word about her on your blog, your FB, or anywhere else, I will make sure that you experience all the fear and discomfort that she is experiencing right now. And no, this isn’t a physical threat, so don’t try to play victim. Frankly, I encourage you to contact EPD, as they already know all about you. I will not do anything illegal, but mark my word you will regret it if you write one more word about her. I will make sure that the entire community knows exactly how much of a sick fuck you are. Your picture, your name, and “samples” of your writing will be posted on every bulletin board in town. There will not be a single person in the Eugene/Springfield area who won’t know that you’re a sick stalker who won’t leave a young girl alone. Cut it out. Now. This is your first, last, and only warning.”

“Cut it out.”

Anti-Capalist Pagan Primer | Rosamond Press

“Please, go ahead and blog my threat.
You have no fucking idea what you’re getting yourself into
You also have no idea how many people are already on to you, and how many people have my back. We also have six other mutual friends who are going to learn about your behavior ASAP
And just so you know as well: if you write anything about me that could be construed as defamatory, you will be hearing from my lawyers ASAP.”

Multnomah County

Two seats on the Multnomah County Board of Commissioners are on the ballot this year, one of which is the chair position. The position of Multnomah County Sheriff is also on the ballot.

Incumbent commissioner Susheela Jayapal is running for reelection, but incumbent chair Deborah Kafoury and sheriff Mike Reese are not. Incumbent commissioner Jessica Vega Pederson is running for the chair position rather than her current seat.

These are all nonpartisan races. If any candidate gets more than 50% of the vote, they will win their seat outright. If no one gets there, the top two finishers in the race will advance to a runoff in November.
