The case of Masterpiece Cakeshop now hangs in the balance

The legal case of Jack Phillips came and went and now they wait with bated breath to find out how the Supreme Court rules and were Justice Neil McGill Gorsuch stands on the issue of religious freedom and freedom of conscience. We shall find out if voting for the Republican candidate is still the right thing to do for the Conservative Christian, or if the argument can finally be torpedoed.

We know why Jack Phillips is in court to begin with, and all because of the ideal that homosexual rights are the same as the rights of minority groups who were truly discriminated against in the past. In a piece written by Jack Phillips himself that was published in the USA Today; he says that he would sell your basic cookies, cakes etc anyone regardless of their faith and choices on who they go to bed with, and if the statement did not conflict with his faith, he would create one of his ‘masterpieces’ for you and whomever to gorge on. Charlie Craig and David Mullins however, wanted Phillips to create a cake that would affirm their ‘marriage.’ As Phillips said in his article, they were living their beliefs as Phillips was living his.

With Phillips as the owner, he told them quite clearly that he would not use his skill set to promote and affirm that ran in conflict with his beliefs. He would still sell them a cake, or whatever but he would not affirm their lifestyle or marriage. From the stories I have heard Craig and Mullins were enraged and the Rainbow Jihad coupled with the Colorado Civil Rights Commission came down on Jack like the weights in an Olympic competition. With the CCRC as progressive as they are, they naturally sided with Craig/Mullins and found Phillips guilty. Phillips was not willing to just give up and thus his day with the Supreme Court.

Charlie Craig meanwhile talked with the press saying; “This entire time Dave and I have just been asking to be treated equally in public. We’re two regular guys that just were wronged and decided to stand up for ourselves. Dave and I do not have an agenda, we all deserve fair and equal treatment, and that’s why we’re here today.”

This should bring up a lot of questions that the press should have asked. Why did you want Jack Phillips to affirm your marriage with his cakes? Why could not have taken your business to a gay friendly bakery? You say that have no agenda and you just want to be treated equally; why did you want to make a business transaction with Masterpiece Cakeshop? I honestly think that Craig/Mullins are not sincere in their statement about having no agenda. I honestly believe that they (and perhaps others sympatric to their cause) were searching for someone who would refuse service based on their so called ‘love of each other.” To paraphrase the old song from the heavy metal group Metallica, they wanted to seek and destroy a God fearing Christian and their business, and put other likeminded Christians on notice. This is just as much of a terrorist attack than any attack in which actual people have been killed. They are not alone, but this the one that made to the highest court in the country.

Progressives see the LGBT community as a force of arms in order to finally corner and marginalize Christians who believe in the Bible and take their faith seriously and literally. The public education system has done a good job in turning many children against the Christian faith or at least got them to embrace certain anti-biblical ideas that have crept into Christian teaching. So has our mainstream media which for many years pushed a liberal to progressive narrative on its viewers.

The LGBT community does not want to be told that their sexual acts are self-destructive to them and the people around them. They want that sexual fix, cause it “feels good.” They don’t want to be told that it is destructive. They might know it deep down, but like drugs they just keep doing it. Because they don’t want their neighbor to remind them of their impending fate, they have to force people to tell them, it is ok to be gay. While I disagree somewhat with Denver pastor Bob Enyart that telling a child that homosexuality is good will inoculate him or her from the Gospel of Jesus Christ (God through the Holy Spirit can still draw people to himself regardless), he is right about how the devil can use people to allow a community of people to die slowly. By using people to encourage wickedness, a community destroys themselves from within rather than without, with the approval of the community’s leaders, and much to the pleasure of the devil watching the people with glee, self-distrust slowly.

Will America as a whole go the same path? Justice Gorsuch could allow for such a fate, in the name of judicial precedent. If so, the LGBT battle will be elevated to the same level as the abortion fight for the progressives have supported two things that enable the destruction of humanity, and why Satan himself maybe pulling the strings of our justices in order for the American people to eventually perish, or cause another empire to fall.

Conspiracy Theory

Russian meddling is about dividing us, not helping Trump

Russian meddling is about dividing us not helping Trump

Russia is meddling with our elections. They’re meddling with our entire political system. They’re meddling in our culture, freedoms, and methods of communication. I once believed they were trying to help Donald Trump become President. Now I realize they are simply elements of chaos.

Today’s report of charges filed against a Russian agent working against American interests is striking for two reasons. First, the details they’ve been able to uncover about “Project Lakhta” are astounding. Second, their strategic goal was NOT to get one person or one party into office but to sow division among the American people regardless of their political ideology.

First charge filed against Russian for interfering with elections

http://noqreport.com/2018/10/19/first-charge-filed-russian-interfering-elections/“The strategic goal of this alleged conspiracy, which continues to this day, is to sow discord in the U.S. political system and to undermine faith in our democratic institutions,” said G. Zachary Terwilliger, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia. “This case demonstrates that federal law enforcement authorities will work aggressively to investigate and prosecute the perpetrators of unlawful foreign influence activities whenever feasible, and that we will not stand by idly while foreign actors obstruct the lawful functions of our government. I want to thank the agents and prosecutors for their determined work on this case.”

Russia didn’t want Trump or Clinton to be President. They didn’t really care who won. All they wanted and continue to want is that no matter who wins any given election, the opposition will be so hateful about the loss that they’re willing to act out more aggressively than they otherwise would have normally.

It’s finally becoming clear that Russia’s plan is much more subverted and, frankly, ingenious than anything mainstream media or the Democrats could have ever fathomed.

They are taking advantage of our freedom of speech and the technology that allows that speech to reach the masses. They’re theory is that if they can get people on both sides of the political spectrum to voice their opinions with hate rather than understanding, it will spread. Those who have practiced thoughtful debate are now becoming raving ranters. Those who once argued their points thoughtfully are now becoming trolls.

Russia is not the only negative actor in this and the trends were already pointing to this divisiveness taking hold and spreading like a virus well before Project Lakhta was conceived, but they have definitely added to the cacophony and harnessed our vilest emotional responses to be used against us.

Their goal is to push as many people towards the fringes as possible. They want the far-left and the far-right to grow. They want debates to turn into arguments, then arguments to turn into blind rage. From there, they speculated that we would be the initiators of our own destruction.

They may be right.

From the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation debacle to the illegal immigration debate to anything that has to do with gun rights, Americans on both sides of the aisle are becoming more passionate. That’s leading many to become unhinged. When enough people are unhinged, any hopes of civil discourse can be forgotten. We are getting to the point where we no longer discuss our differences. We simply try to shout our perspectives louder than those opposed to us.

The left is the easier target. I’m not just saying that as a conservative. I say that because their position on issues make it easier for them to be emotional when news breaks about an event important to them. This is why those who blame racism for everything are not only seeing racism in every aspect of American life but are feeling justified in practicing their own versions of racism.

We now see that Russia’s goal wasn’t to get Trump elected. It was to make one side or the other absolutely hate the outcome regardless of who won. They aren’t pushing a political agenda. They’re pushing a cultural apocalypse.

The NPC meme triggers leftists so much because it’s too close to the truth

The NPC meme triggers leftists so much because its too close to the truth

Leftists have been called cucks, snowflakes, libtards, and a multitude of other names assigned to them by conservatives and internet trolls for years. These labels often annoyed them, but the latest popular insult has triggered them like no other. It’s the NPC meme and it’s spreading like wildfire across the internet.

Twitter has even started banning people using the meme because it is “dehumanizing.”

But here’s the thing: previous labels may have been funny or even harsh, but the NPC meme strikes so close to home that it’s actually becoming a threat. It is being called dehumanizing, but it’s the closest a label has come to hitting the nail on the head when it comes to the unhinged left of today.

A non-player character, or NPC, is a character in a video game that is controlled by the computer. Some are influential to the outcome of the game but most will wander around the video game’s world doing random things and generally taking up space.

The use of the NPC meme in reference to leftists is tantamount to calling them unthinking automatons that echo each other without understanding beyond the collectivist, Marxist vision they claim to share. This label is quickly becoming the ultimate insult because it is, for all intents and purposes, true.

Thoughtful conservatives have known for years that mainstream media and social media are echo chambers for popular leftist mantras and incessant anger towards the boogeyman of the day. For over two years, that boogeyman has been President Trump, who has made the left so enraged they cannot see anything other than the hatred they feel towards him and those who support him.

Anything positive he does is dismissed while anything bad he does is blown out of proportions. This destructive cycle is so rampant, the echo chamber is experience a feedback loop. They no longer hear or know anything outside of their collective.

They have become NPCs controlled by the leftist puppet masters.

If it didn’t strike so close to home, it wouldn’t be getting such a vicious response.

Elizabeth Warren releases DNA proof that she’s at least 1/1024th Native American. Twitter responds appropriately.

Elizabeth Warren releases DNA proof that shes at least 11024th Native American Twitter responds appr

There’s a strategist in Senator Elizabeth Warren’s ear who thought it was a good idea to release results of a DNA test showing a likelihood that one of her very distant descendants was Native American. The advice taken. The results were predictable.

The test shows she is at most 1/32nd Native American if she is six generations from her Native American ancestor. That’s her best-case scenario. At worst, her ancestor was as far back as ten generations which would make her 1/1024th Native American. To put that into perspective, if she were to honor her heritage by engaging in 1/1024th of a four-hour Native American Sweat, she’d be in and out of the lodge in 14 seconds.

Elizabeth Warren releases results of DNA test on Native American ancesty

https://www.bostonglobe.com/news/politics/2018/10/15/warren-addresses-native-american-issue/YEUaGzsefB0gPBe2AbmSVO/story.htmlThe inherent imprecision of the six-page DNA analysis could provide fodder for Warren’s critics. If her great-great-great-grandmother was Native American, that puts her at 1/32nd American Indian. But the report includes the possibility that she’s just 1/1024th Native American if the ancestor is 10 generations back.

Undergoing the test and releasing the results reveal how seriously Warren is taking the attacks from Trump, who has been able to effectively caricature and diminish his national foes via nicknames and conspiracy theories. Trump pushed then President Barack Obama into releasing the long form of his birth certificate to prove what most knew was already true: He was born in America.

This publicity stunt was designed to let everyone know she’s serious about running for President in 2020. She wanted to be able to call out President Trump on his promise to give $1,000,000 to charity if she could prove Native American heritage. He won’t pay, of course, which will get plenty of headlines calling him a deal-breaking scoundrel, but was it really if for her to be the focus of even more jokes on social media?

Here are some of the reactions on Twitter. You decide:
