Marianne Williamson The Democrat candidate and thought leader for a new age cult

In an expansive Democrat field for the 2020 primary, one underdog has a larger following and more exposure than some of Governors and Congressmen. Marianne Williamson is a New York Times bestselling author who has been Oprah, Bill Maher, Good Morning America and more. It is undeniable that Marianne Williamson knows how to maintain attention when on camera. And her new age religious message has touched figured in Hollywood. A dated list of celebrity guests at her lectures include Anthony Perkins, Lesley Ann Warren, Tommy Tune, Cher, and Roy Scheider, according to the LA Times.

“Spiritual Growth involves giving up the stories of your past so the universe can write a new one.” The Law of Divine Compensation

It’s rare to see in a presidential candidate depicted in a 1992 article, in such a way that provides understanding to their current worldview and political formidability as a candidate. The LA Times in February of 1992 penned a report about Marianne Williamson is what seemed like her apex as a New Age guru. She was on Oprah and after reading her book A Return to Love, Oprah claimed to have experienced 157 miracles. Miracles is a theme of Williamson’s theology. She pioneered a lecture series called “The Course of Miracles” which is the launching point for numerous books. Of the twelve books listed on her website, six have the word “miracles” in the title or subtitle. Her best seller A Return to Love is her most famous work.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” A Return to Love

Self-Love Gospel

“We are depressed collectively.

This collective depression is so huge, so all-pervasive that few even recognize how strange it is.

And just as enlightenment is the antidote to individual despair, it is the antidote to our collective despair as well. The spiritual journey is not limited to the path of the individual. We’re challenged not just as individuals, but as nations, as groups, and ultimately as a species to become the embodiment of our more loving selves.” From Tears to Triumph

In none of her quotations that she presents, to sell her books, is Jesus mentioned, only the vague self-determinable notion of a god that is loving and powerful. A lot of quotes by her are not, on their face, heretical per Christian orthodoxy, but the foundational premises are. For instance, her new age religious beliefs foundationally believe that human nature is inherently good. While there is acknowledgement of evil and even personal responsibilities, paints a dichotomy that is fear vs love, instead of sin and salvation. Yet in removing these foundational doctrines, this new age faith still promotes forgiveness, loving other people and seeking purpose in one’s life. Our purpose is to be our best selves, living out our potential intellectually, physically, spiritually, emotionally, and every aspect of their lives. We live to make the world a more beautiful place. Her faith is mystical, polar opposite of legalistic

“Like ancient priestesses at Delphi, let us summon all our powers of multi-dimensional knowing, emerge from the narrow and shallow casing of a mechanistic worldview, throw off the chains of a rationalistic approach to life, and remember we are co-creators of our future.” December 13, 2017

Invocations of Jesus

The name of Jesus is used scarcely and more in reference to a historical or literary figure. Following the Las Vegas Shooting that most in the media have forgotten about, Marianne Williamson talked wrote about Jesus overturning the money changers in reference to politicians refusing to take money from the NRA. A prior reference in September of 2018. In the Christmas season of 2015, Marianne Williamson wrote that Jesus and what he stood for is born in our hearts through our actions like giving and we can do what Jesus can do.

According to A Course in Miracles, he doesn’t have anything we don’t have; he simply doesn’t have anything else. He is in a state that is still potential in the rest of us. The image of Jesus has been so perverted, so twisted by institutions claiming to represent him. As it’s stated in the Course, “Some bitter idols have been made of him who came only to be brother to the world.” But beyond the mythmaking, doctrine and dogma, he is a magnificent spiritual force. And one doesn’t have to be Christian to appreciate that fact, or to fall on our knees with praise and thanks at the realization of its meaning.

Jesus was a wise teacher but not the messiah or God. He is one-natured, a perfect or near perfect one-natured being of the past. He is not our salvation and some people, those who claim he is make him a bitter and scornful judge, pervert his memory. This is what Marianne Williamson is saying. It’s almost exactly like Islam, though Marianne Williamson is not claiming Christ will return to judge the Christians. Though even following the terrorist attacks in Paris, a place of significance for her, her language in addressing Islamic terrorism was nonexistent. She denies that ISIS terrorists are actually Muslims.

Pantheism

Perhaps what best sums up Marianne Williamson’s theology is pantheism. This is a mystical notion that there is no one right answer. Another way of wording it is Universal Unitarianism, believing everything and nothing simultaneously. A more pop cultural comparison is the Force in Star Wars with all of the confusions of the latest trilogy. This force is love, not the biblical notion of love but the unfulfilling pagan notion of love that plagues our society.

Permeating Worldview

In being a thought leader for the new age pantheistic faith, Marianne Williamson has increased her activism from charitable causes such as AIDS activism and feminism to more overtly political causes. In 2014, she ran for the Congress in the 33rd District of California. She was not successful finishing fourth out of sixteen candidates. She ran on an extremely far left platform for 2014 politics. That platform has since become more mainstream. She has expressed passed support for Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, out of the closet socialists. She is advocating her actual thoughts, not parroting some leftists on social media. For instance, she wrote in 2018, in the Washington Posta passionate plea for reparations before it became a plank on the Democrat primary debate.

An apology does not constitute a true amends, and to truly heal our racial divide, we cannot stop there. Germany didn’t just apologize for the Holocaust; it has paid out $89 billion in reparations.

Her platform on her campaign website is a standard socialist platform that is very detailed to the point of lack of concision. Climate crisis, abortion, tax hikes, halting all fossil fuel projects, gun control, and a plethora of other leftist causes.

Final Thoughts

Marianne Williamson has a campaign that appeals to watchers of Oprah, therefore has some capacity to be a flash in the pan candidate in the Democrat primary. More importantly is how widely believed her worldview is in American society. She was a NYT bestseller at the top of the charts on multiple occasions. She fills new age megachurches. She would not have profited from her religious beliefs without a demand for God without Jesus. “Ye be like God.”

The practice of Satanism is not worshiping the literal Satan, it’s a philosophy of self-worship. That is essentially what Marianne Williamson spent a career preaching with her self-help spirituality. Know the source of her worldview; it’s not God, it’s one of the legion of manifestations of Baal. Seeing her worldview, it should come as no surprise that the result of spiritual depravity leads to an inclination towards socialist policies.

The false narratives behind Portland’s Antifa versus Proud Boys

Published

The false narratives behind Portlands Antifa versus Proud Boys

Depending on which news outlets you use, there are two primary narratives that are being pushed. Narrative one is, “Far-right group and Antifa clash in Portland.” Narrative two is, “Antifa gets violent. Again.”

The first narrative is what you’ll get from progressive legacy media outlets as they offer cover for the violence being perpetrated almost exclusively by Antifa as they clash with the Proud Boys. The latter is being classified as a “far-right” group, but they’re actually more of an “alt-right” group that does not believe in true conservative principles. Nevertheless, anything “right” is painted by the media as part of the conservative movement, the GOP, and President Trump’s base. This is important to understand because in the narrative the left is painting, their goal is to make the Proud Boys appear to be white supremacist and therefore attached to President Trump because according to their latest agenda, they have to portray him as a racist at every turn.

The second narrative is the reality, and you won’t find it reported this way by many news outlets, even on the right. There’s a disassociation some publications are actively engaged in where they believe reporting that seems to favor the Proud Boys makes the news outlet seem like it’s supporting white supremacy. This is the progressive propaganda machine at work; even conservative journalists are hesitant to lose credibility over perceptions.

Quillette journalist Angy Ngo is reporting live on Twitter. We’ll try to update it as he adds more:

As you can see from Ngo’s reporting, the violence seems to be undertaken exclusively by Antifa. But legacy media will only report it as clashes “between” the two groups and not as violence instigated solely by the side that holds the left’s progressive mantle. All of this is secondary to the overarching narrative they’re driving, that the Proud Boys represent the right and their white supremacy beliefs are defended by the President.

On cue, the President chimed in:

The left pounced, as they’re wont to do, by saying this is evidence the President is sympathetic to the Proud Boys because he singled out Antifa in a “mutual” conflict. What they won’t tell you is Antifa is starting the fights. They’re bringing the weapons. They’re pepper-spraying people. They’re attacking buses. One does not have to believe in the Proud Boys’ rhetoric to realize Antifa is instigating violence here.

As Beth Baumann reported, even journalists are being targeted:

So Much For Being ‘Peaceful’: Antifa Attacks Reporters And Conservatives In Portland (Again)

Not quite seven weeks ago, conservative journalist Andy Ngo was attacked while covering an Antifa protest in Portland, Oregon. Mayor Tom Wheeler ordered police to stand down at the time and received backlash for doing so. The city prepared for the Proud Boys to hold a rally on Saturday, with Antifa showing up to counter protest. Wheeler made it clear that Portland is taking a “zero tolerance” policy during Saturday’s activities.

Despite the warning, Antifa, once again, became violent.

At one point, Antifa protestors had The Washington Examiner‘s Julio Rosas surrounded. They wanted him to report on what was taking place from the other side of the street because he “wasn’t with” them.

Rosas attempted to explain that he was simply reporting on the events for his job but Antifa didn’t care. They thought he was “spying” on them.

The irony in all of this has become a recurring theme between Antifa and their supporters in progressive media and the Democratic Party. They claim Antifa is simply “anti-fascist” while ignoring the fact that they’re the ones using fascism to promote their ideas and to quash opposing ideas. Reports on the ground in Portland demonstrate this clearly.

Here are Rosas’s Twitter reports:

The left’s narratives: (1) Proud Boys and Antifa are equally to blame, (2) Proud Boys are white supremacists while Antifa are anti-fascists, and (3) President Trump support white supremacists. Don’t believe the lies.

Alleged Philadelphia shooter Maurice Hill attended radical Wahhabi Islam mosque: report

Alleged Philadelphia shooter Maurice Hill attended radical Wahhabi Islam mosque report

Wahhabism, the anti-American fundamentalist Islamic sect that drives the religious culture in Saudi Arabia, has as one of its stated goals to spread their beliefs around the world through any means necessary. Mosques promoting their radical ideology have been popping up across America over the last few years, including in Philadelphia. Alleged cop-shooter Maurice Hill attended one of them.

According to Clarion Project:

The mosque, called Masjid Ahlil Hadith Wal Athar, is known for preaching the Islamist ideology promoted by Saudi Arabia referred to as “Wahhabism.”

Clarion Intelligence Network has been aware through its sources that the area where the shootings took place is known for trafficking in guns, drugs and counterfeit items. This criminal market has a strong Islamist element that includes extremist gangs.

Hill’s older sister said he “occasionally attended” an unnamed mosque, confirming initial reports from our sources that Hill is a Muslim. The sources do not yet have first-hand evidence of the shooter being personally involved in Islamist extremism.

Clarion Intel’s sources report that Masjid Ahlil Hadith Wal Athar is a Salafi mosque which follows the theocratic teachings of Saudi Arabia’s top Wahhabist scholars.

At this point, there is no indication that Hill’s shooting of police officers was motivated by Islamism or anything other than a desire to resist arrest.

Today, a march was scheduled to “Free Maurice Hill” by Black Community Control of Police, a group adamantly opposed to law enforcement. There are no indications the group is aligned with Masjid Ahlil Hadeeth Wal Athar, but it is a common practice among radical Islamic groups to disguise their associations and operate apparently independent from one another.

The details surrounding the gunfight seem to indicate it was not prompted by Wahhabism as Hill was apparently approached as a result of a separate warrant enforced against a neighbor. But the clear disregard for police authority and the willingness to attempt to murder multiple law enforcement officers indicates an ideology that is prepared to kill and die. Was this ideology sparked at the radical mosque Hill attended?

As expected, the appetite of legacy media to cover Maurice Hill died down quickly despite the rampant calls for gun control. His story has too many things that go against the progressive media’s narrative.

Any connections to Islam in situations like these are automatically dismissed as Islamophobia. But it’s highly unlikely Maurice Hill’s alleged actions were completely disparate from the radical teachings of the mosque he attended.

The 2nd Amendment is the first target in the left’s war on liberty

The 2nd Amendment is the first target in the Lefts war on Liberty

The commonsense civil right of armed self-defense is the canary in a coal mine for the cause of liberty.

It was a little over a month ago that John Lovell from the Warrior Poet Society produced this video, but it seems longer given recent events. He expresses the thoughts of many that are becoming increasingly prescient by the day. We are witness to the fact that while those on the national socialist left like to profess support of liberty as being ‘liberal’ they are becoming ever more strident towards the concept.

While the common sense human right of self-defense is literally the tip of the spear in the defense of liberty. The people on the left who only pretend to be liberal are now branching out from this basic human right, going after other civil liberties with a vengeance. Topping their list is a concept that eviscerates several civil liberties with on fell swoop, Gun Confiscation SWATing [aka so-called ‘Red flag’ laws ]. So far they’ve done little to solve the problem and according to an article from colleague Blaine Traber: Baltimore’s homicides by firearm RISE 13% since red flag gun law went into effect. Thus, these abominations of Constitutional Liberties are not only useless for their intended purpose, they are making the situation even worse.

Presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris belched forth an even more egregious example in which she expanded her ire for self-preservation to what George Orwell characterized as ‘Wrongthink’. As reported in Bearing Arms, Senator Harris proposed opening up the criteria for gun confiscation to the realm of improper viewpointsThis case illustrates that the 2nd amendment is just the first target in the Left’s war on Liberty, but it certainly won’t be the last.
