Despite Fauci’s assertions, Israeli data indicate natural immunity 6x greater than achieved from the jab

Of new cases, 40 percent were patients who had already received experimental COVID gene-therapy vaccinations, compared with only 1 percent who were previously infected.

July 15, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — Adding to a long list of studies contradicting recent statements by Joe Biden’s chief medical adviser Anthony Fauci, statistics out of Israel indicate that the immune response of those individuals who have recovered from COVID-19 is approximately 6.72 times greater than those who accepted experimental COVID-19 gene-therapy injections. 

As reported by Israel National News, data submitted to the nation’s Health Ministry shows that COVID-19 “patients who recovered from the virus were far less likely to become infected … than people who were vaccinated against COVID.” 

The Health Ministry’s data on infections over the last two months reveals that “Israelis with immunity from natural infection were far less likely to become infected again in comparison to Israelis who only had immunity via vaccination.” 

With 7,700 new cases of the virus being detected since the reported “new wave” beginning in May, only “72 of the confirmed cases were reported in people who were known to have been infected previously – that is, less than 1 percent of the new cases.” 

“Roughly 40 percent of new cases – or more than 3,000 patients – involved people who had been infected despite being vaccinated,” according to the report. 

“With a total of 835,792 Israelis known to have recovered from the virus, the 72 instances of reinfection amount to 0.0086 percent of people who were already infected with COVID,” wrote David Rosenberg from Israel National News. 

In contrast, 3,000 of the 5,193,499 Israelis who have received experimental vaccines were infected in recent months, equating to 0.0578 percent.  

This means that those injected with these experimental vaccines (mostly from Pfizer) were “6.72 times more likely to get infected after the shot” than those who had recovered from natural infection.  

This is important because in his push to get more people, even children, to take the jab, Fauci recently asserted “vaccination in people previously infected [with COVID-19] significantly boosts the immune response. Vaccines actually, at least with regard to SARS-CoV-2, can do better than nature.”

This assertion from the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) not only contradicts these latest findings from Israel, but the prestigious Cleveland Clinic released a study last month confirming “subjects previously infected with SARS-CoV-2 are unlikely to get COVID-19 reinfection whether or not they receive the vaccine,” prompting them to call “into question the necessity to vaccinate those who have already had SARS-CoV-2 infection.”  

Another earlier study from Israel validated the same conclusion, finding that protection from the virus is no more robust after injection with Pfizer’s experimental mRNA vaccine than that gained after recovering from previous infection, compelling them to “question the need to vaccinate previously-infected individuals.” 

An additional study, published May 24 in the journal Nature, found a significant presence of antibodies against COVID-19 in subjects previously infected with the virus, providing “strong evidence for long-lasting immunity” that should continue “for the rest of people’s lives.” 

A study, published the same day in The Lancet, found that individuals infected with COVID-19 remain immune to reinfection for a “substantial” period of time. This follows numerous other studies determining vaccination to be unnecessary for providing immunity to SARS-CoV-2 infection for the previously infected.  

In a recent interview, Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, an epidemiologist and associate professor of medicine at Stanford University Medical School, said Fauci “has ignored the data on this” and his directive on this topic “makes no sense. It’s bad for public health, and it is contrary to the science,” he said. “I’m at a loss for words to explain how you can continue to ignore the vast amount of evidence on this and then make policy around that. It’s just a mistake.”  

Johns Hopkins School of Medicine professor Dr. Marty Makary supported the growing evidence for natural immunity in a May radio interview and called out U.S. government bodies for “ignoring natural immunity.” 

Makary explained that “[t]here is more data on natural immunity than there is on vaccinated immunity, because natural immunity has been around longer,” adding that “[w]hen you get natural immunity from a severe COVID infection, you have natural immunity that’s probably lifelong.” 

“Right now, in America, 62 percent of all adults have been vaccinated and half of the unvaccinated have natural immunity. That means 80 to 85 percent of adults in America today have immunity … That’s called herd immunity and we are there,” the professor said. 

On the same broadcast with Bhattacharya, Dr. Peter McCullough, an internist, cardiologist, professor and medical journal editor, concluded that for these reasons and more there’s “no clinical reason to go get vaccinated.”

Former HHS Sec. Sebelius: Unvaccinated shouldn’t be able to work, have limits ‘on where they can go’

'You may not have access to a situation where you’re going to put my grandchildren in jeopardy, where you might kill them.'

LifeSiteNews has produced an extensive COVID-19 vaccines resources page. View it here. 

July 15, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Former Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius said Americans who refuse the experimental coronavirus vaccine ought to have limited mobility and participation in society. 

On Tuesday night, CNN “OutFront” host Erin Burnett spoke with Sebelius. In addition to being the Secretary of Health and Human Services under the Obama administration, Sebelius served as the governor of Kansas from 2003 to 2009.  

Sebelius is well-known to pro-lifers. During her time as HHS Secretary, she was responsible for the contraceptive mandate ordering employers to participate in the provision of contraception, including abortion-inducing drugs, in their health care plans.  

As governor, she used her power to protect the legality of late-term abortion facilities.  

During the TV interview, Sebelius said she wants COVID-19 vaccines to be fully approved by the FDA. Currently, the COVID vaccines are available under “Emergency Use Authorization.” She also encouraged private businesses to force their employees to receive the experimental shots.    

“We’re in a situation where we have a wildly effective vaccine, multiple choices, lots available, free of charge,” she claimed. She failed to address the lack of evidence that the vaccines are effective or the dangerous effects.

“We have folks who are just saying I won’t do it,” she continued. “I think that it’s time to say to those folks, it’s fine if you don’t choose to get vaccinated.” 

“You may not come to work. You may not have access to a situation where you’re going to put my grandchildren in jeopardy, where you might kill them, or you might put them in a situation where they’re going to carry the virus to someone in a high-risk position,” Sebelius said, despite the fact that COVID-19 poses almost no risk to children and there is a lack of evidence that asymptomatic people can transmit the virus.  

“That’s, I think, the point where we are, is freedom is one thing, but freedom when you harm others like secondhand smoke and issues that we’ve dealt with very clearly in the past,” she added, but did not explain how someone with vaccine-induced immunity could contract the virus from an unvaccinated person. 

“So I think we’re reaching that point in the United States where those of us who are vaccinated, I want to take off my mask,” Sebelius continued, even though the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has already said vaccinated people needn't wear masks. 

“I want to be able to live my life with vaccination, and right now, I’m being impinged on by people who say I don’t want to get vaccinated,” she said. “It’s fine. I want them to maybe have a limitation on where they can go and who they can possibly infect.”

CALGARY, Alberta, July 15, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – LifeSiteNews’s LifeFunder platform is launching a campaign in support of Canadian Pastor Tim Stephens, who despite being out of prison is not yet safe from government persecution for public religious exercise and assembly.

Stephens is a father of eight and serves as the pastor of Fairview Baptist Church in Calgary, Alberta. He was arrested June 14 for holding an outdoor prayer service in violation of Alberta’s COVID-19, despite the rarity of outdoor transmission of the virus. He was previously arrested for holding indoor church services, for which the authorities changed the locks to prevent entry to the church.

Stephens was released July 2 with the help of the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, after the news that orders from the Chief Medical Officer of Health (CMOH) would be rescinded and cancelled. Control of church buildings was also returned to the congregants on July 1, but the threat of grave legal penalties still hangs over his head.

“Legally speaking, I’m in a lot of trouble,” Stephens told radio host Mark Patrone on Wednesday (the interview begins approximately 44 minutes into the episode). “I have the criminal charge against me still outstanding, and my court date for that keeps getting adjourned. I’m supposed to be in court July 26, and then I have a number of summons against me for public health violations, and so I think I have six or seven of those, and those carry a penalty of up to $100,000 or up to $500,000 for repeat offenses, so multiple hundreds of thousands of dollars of fine.”

Proceeds for the LifeFunder campaign will go to the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, which is representing Stephens. Those interested in donating can do so anonymously by clicking here.

The case has drawn international attention and outrage thanks in part to video of his arrest, in which his children could be seen crying and clinging to his hand as Stephens was hauled into a police car.

“I am troubled that our Canadian neighbors are effectively being forced to gather in secret, undisclosed locations to exercise their basic freedom to worship,” wrote U.S. Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Missoui, last month in a letter asking the U.S. Commision on International Religious Freedom to consider adding Canada to its watch list. "Canadian authorities’ arrest of faith leaders and seizure of church property, among other enforcement actions, appear to constitute systematic, ongoing, and egregious violations of religious freedom.”

Through it all, Stephens has managed to find positivity in his ordeal. "The last 17 nights I've spent in jail have given me opportunities to declare the glory of Christ, within and without,” Stephens said during his July 4 sermon. “[There] never has been a time in my life when I've been so hated by people. But never has there been a time in my life when I felt so loved by people [at] the same time. Don't fear men. Shout from the rooftops that Jesus Christ is King of all kings.”

“There’s a number of inmates that I met and became friends with, that I had many conversations with and ministered to, that I wrote letters to so they could have words of wisdom and encouragement,” he added to Patrone. “I was able to get them to get Bibles while they were in jail, so many of these men I’ll reconnect with, and they said when they come out they’re gonna come to church and we’re going to continue our relationship. So, you know, God had me there for a reason, and those inmates that I had interaction with knew that, and they were thankful for that. So I am thankful for the time that I was there, and able to minister to these men.”

Stephens also asked listeners to consider donating to the Justice Centre and to Fairview Baptist Church.

Canadian journalist: Ongoing church burnings are Canada’s equivalent of BLM

'It's the Canadian equivalent of when Black Lives Matter burns down black owned businesses in black neighborhoods – that does not help black people.'

CANADA, July 15, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – The head of Rebel News, Ezra Levant, told FOX News host Tucker Carlson that the multitude of arson attacks on churches in Canada are the nation’s “Black Lives Matter” moment, and called out the near silence regarding the burnings from the nation’s top leaders.

“It's the Canadian equivalent of when Black Lives Matter burns down black owned businesses in black neighborhoods – that does not help black people,” Levant told Carlson last week.

There has been heavy media coverage of the discovery of unmarked graves at now-closed residential schools once run by the Church in parts of Canada and now nearly 40 churches, most of them Catholic, have either been burned or vandalized.  

An online map posted by True North News shows the locations of these churches.

“All of a sudden Canada looks a lot like the Soviet Union,” Carlson began.

“Seem like we're exaggerating a little bit? Well, they're burning Catholic and Anglican churches in recent days. Leftist groups are. But Canada's leaders aren't condemning the burning of churches. No, they're endorsing the burning of churches,” he continued.

Levant told Carlson that most of the churches being burned are “Aboriginal-focused.”

“And you often have, in one case, white Antifa-style vandals...filming themselves desecrating a church. And the trouble is from the very top, it's either silence or tacit support,” said Levant.

Levant added he is “reluctant to use the word Kristallnacht because we're not there yet,” in regard to the church burnings in Canada.  

“It was a precursor to the Holocaust. Obviously, we are not that far gone yet, but what do you call it when literally dozens of churches are being systematically vandalized, torched?” 

Kristallnacht was the burning of Jewish synagogues, homes, businesses, schools, and hospitals at the hands of the Nazis in Germany in 1938, which resulted in many deaths and thousands of Jewish people taken to concentration camps; ultimately six million Jews died in the Holocaust.

Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau waited weeks before acknowledging the church vandalism, and when he did speak, he said it is “understandable” that churches have been burned, also saying it is “unacceptable and wrong.” 

In early July, Gerald Butts, a former adviser and close friend to Trudeau was called out for saying the recent rash of arson and vandalism attacks on mostly Catholic churches are “understandable.”

Carlson called out both Butts as well as Harsha Walia, executive director of the British Columbia (B.C.) Civil Liberties Association (BCCLA). Walia recently sparked online fury after openly calling for violence against Catholic parishes, writing on Twitter, “Burn it all down.”  

Said Carlson of Walia, “the head of the B.C. Civil Rights Commission says burn it all down. I mean, that person sounds like a dangerous lunatic. Is that who is that? What is going on?”

Levant responded to Carlson by noting that Walia “hasn't been sacked” yet because of her comments, noting that a lot the churches being burned have been ones with Aboriginal Indigenous congregants, who have asked for their churches to not be burned down.

Although the residential school system was founded by the secular government in the 19th century, and then woefully underfunded by the state, and although different religious groups were asked to run the schools, the Catholic Church has borne the brunt of recent criticism.

Catholic author Michael O’Brien who attended residential schools and gave testimony to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, previously told LifeSiteNews that the chief underlying issue in the residential school saga was the institutional abuse of children by removing them from their families by the state authorities, and then taken to the schools, noting the “long-term psychological and social effects of this.”

Furthermore, residential schools were severely underfunded, meaning that children did not receive sufficient medical care. These children often suffered from excessively high rates of tuberculosis. From 1910 through 1920, child mortality rates were consistently high. Additionally, the Department of Indian Affairs often refused to ship home the bodies of children who died at the government-mandated schools, meaning they were frequently buried on site.

WATCH: Lifelong Cuban-American freedom fighter says ‘it’s clearly a new day in Cuba’

Commenting on the ongoing anti-communist protests in the island nation, Maria Werlau, Executive Director of Cuba Archive, told LifeSiteNews that in the future, people will think of Cuba ‘before July 11’ and ‘after July 11.’

July 15, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Massive, spontaneous peaceful protests erupted all over Cuba earlier this week calling for an end to the nation’s communist dictatorship, prompting one lifelong Cuban-American democracy activist to declare, “It’s clearly a new day in Cuba.” 

During a wide-ranging interview with LifeSiteNews correspondent Jim Hale, Maria Werlau, Executive Director of Cuba Archive, a.k.a. Free Society Project, explained that the mainstream media have incorrectly portrayed the protests as focusing on denouncing U.S. economic sanctions against the island nation when in reality “most people were chanting for freedom from the dictatorship.”

“I didn’t hear anybody in the streets of Cuba – and there’s tons of video – saying ‘Down with the embargo,’” noted Werlau. “Not one.” 

On the contrary, “people were flying U.S. flags.”

Werlau explained that as word spread through social media about a freedom protest in one small city on Sunday, July 11, others throughout the island were emboldened to pour into the streets to peacefully demonstrate.   

Citizens who have spent their entire lives under tyrannical communist rule “overcame their historic, ingrained fear,” said Werlau. “And the most amazing thing is they went to the streets chanting ‘Freedom!’ and ‘Down with communism, down with the dictatorship!’”

“This was shocking for the government,” said Werlau. The impromptu cascade of protests “took them by surprise.”  

Government forces quickly moved to clamp down on the marchers, and at the moment it remains unknown how many have been detained.   

Despite the communist dictatorship cutting off internet, telephone communications, and electricity in many places on the island in order to stifle the nascent freedom movement, Cuban citizens have found ways to get electronic messages and video out to the free world. 

Werlau spoke of one video showing police entering the home of a family in order to arrest the father “just because he attended a protest.” The police shot the unarmed father of three as the man’s horrified wife filmed the unprovoked assault.  

“It’s pretty bad. They’re disappearing people, arresting people,” said Welau. “The terror apparatus is in full force.”

“I’ve studied the mechanisms of repression in Cuba. Cuba has a higher surveillance rate than the Stasi had in the former East Germany, higher than the KGB in the former Soviet Union,” noted Werlau.

“I think this is going to create a momentum that will be hard to put down,” continued Werlau. She quoted a Cuban priest who announced, “They cannot repress all the people, all the time, everywhere.”  

“It’s a desperate situation, but it’s clearly a new day in Cuba,” declared Werlau.  

“I think we will see the Cuban situation as ‘before’ and ‘after’ July 11,” she predicted.  

Since its founding in 2001, CubaArchive.org has conducted investigations and research with the goal of advancing human rights in Cuba. The U.S.-based non-profit organization documents disappearances, deaths, and killings by the State. 

“The facts speak for themselves,” said Werlau. “We have attributed to the Castro regime 3,500 firing squad executions, almost 2,000 extrajudicial killings, and a lot of prisoners dead from minor medical conditions.”   

Though she allows that these statistics most likely represent only a small fraction of the real number of victims of the Castro dictatorship, Werlau said that they are enough to convey to the world the horrors of communist rule. 

Alluding to the death of George Floyd last year, Werlau pointed out that in the U.S. people pour into the streets by the hundreds of thousands to protest police abuse of just one person, yet in Cuba people have been repressed and victimized for six decades, and people outside don’t seem to care.

Despite their crimes against humanity, Werlau said that the island’s dictators are “celebrated by the world.”

President Obama’s visit to Cuba in 2016 opened the dam, according to Werlau, “and everybody went to Cuba to kiss the dictators.”  

“We’ve had Jimmy Carter play ball with Castro; the Obamas did the wave in a baseball stadium in Cuba,” she recounted. “Those are very, very hurtful things, because there’s been so much suffering in Cuba. It’s not just the loss of life. Every Cuban has a story: Families separated, lives reduced to misery, because they are peons of the state.”  

“It's a totalitarian state that owns all the economy,” she continued. “The laws are ‘Stalinist.’ That word fits today after the collapse of that failed system, [yet] it remains alive in Cuba.”

“In the end, my real wish for Cuba is a lot of love in order to overcome the rhetoric of hatred, division, class war – all sorts of aggressions to the human soul,” said Werlau. “The only way that Cubans are going to rise and put that behind is with love.”

“That’s how a peaceful transition can happen,” she added.

Amid flood across southern border, Biden admin says Cuban refugees won’t be let into US

Inhabitants of the island nation have been told not to enter the United States while illegal immigrants from Mexico and other countries are crossing the border.

WASHINGTON, D.C., July 15, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – The Biden administration is taking a strikingly different view of refugees hoping to flee to the United States from the Communist regime of Cuba than it does for illegal immigrants from Mexico, with U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas stressing Tuesday that members of the former group will not be allowed to enter the country.

“We also stand in solidarity with the Cuban people and their call for freedom from the repression and economic suffering that the Cuban’s authoritarian regime is causing,” Mayorkas said during a Tuesday press briefing. But the “time is never right to attempt migration by sea. To those who risk their lives doing so, this risk is not worth taking. Allow me to be clear: if you take to the sea, you will not come to the United States.”

“If individuals make, establish a well-founded fear of persecution or torture, they are referred to third countries for resettlement,” he added.

The Homeland Security chief’s rhetoric contrasts sharply with the more relaxed posture the Biden administration has taken to illegal immigration overall, which has been credited with the humanitarian crisis at the southern border this year, as the border became flooded with an “unsustainable” number of crossers.

In fact, in February the administration specifically canceled predecessor Donald Trump’s third-country agreements with the governments of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras to host refugees while their applications for political asylum in America were reviewed. In March, U.S. Border Patrol agents confirmed the agency was releasing illegals seeking asylum in the United States without a notice requiring them to appear in court at a specific date.

“Secretary Mayorkas made a pose of being tough on Haitian or Cuban boat people if we have a problem like that. But it wasn’t quite as tough as you think,” Center for Immigration Studies executive director Mark Krikorian told NewsNet. “Because, while he pledged to stop people from Haiti or Cuba coming by sea, he specifically said that. At the very time he was speaking, the Border Patrol was forced to let in people from Haiti and Cuba and a lot of other places, who snuck across the land border.”

Conservatives argue the apparent double standard is rooted in political self-interest rather than principle. Migration from Mexico has long been considered to be a source of reliable Democrat voters, whereas Cuban immigrants are generally Republican allies, thanks in large part to their firsthand and/or family experience living under Communist rule.

The national Black Lives Matter organization also weighed in, blaming the United States for Cuba’s current woes rather than the Cuban government, which it praised for granting asylum to “Black revolutionaries” like Assata Shakur:

Shakur was a Black Panther member and avowed Marxist who in the 1970s was placed on the FBI’s Most Wanted List for violent crimes, including multiple bank robberies, kidnappings, and murders. She murdered Pennsylvania state trooper Werner Foerster in 1973 during a traffic stop, was sentenced to life in prison, and escaped in 1979 with the help of Cuban or Cuban-trained domestic terrorists.

Massachusetts legislature mulls allowing kids of any age to be vaccinated without parental knowledge or consent

The bills would either eliminate the religious exemption or else make the exemption much harder to obtain by incentivizing institutions to reject students who seek religious exemptions, allowing minors to get vaccines without parental approval, and letting schools make up their own vaccine requirements.

BOSTON, Massachusetts, July 15, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Massachusetts is considering legislation that would allow children to be vaccinated without their parents’ knowledge or consent and weaken religious exemptions to current school vaccine requirements. 

According to a press release put out by Health Choice 4 Action, a Massachusetts-based coalition of health care advocates, over 400 people signed up to testify before the Joint Committee on Public Health, which is considering several bills designed to change existing legislation related to immunizations. 

Participants spoke for 3 minutes each at the 13-hour-long hearing which began at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, July 12 and ended 1:20 a.m. on Wednesday, July 13.

Health Choice 4 Action, which says it is “against medical coercion,” targeted a pack of new legislative proposals that would permit physicians to treat minors without parental consent in non-emergency situations, conceal medical records from parents, and do away with religious exemptions for students.

Among the most significant measures were Senate Bill 1517 and its companion House Bill 2271 (known as the Community Immunity Act) which were proposed by Democrat legislators Rep. Paul Donato and Sen. Becca Rausch, as well as House Bill 2411 filed by State Rep. Andy Vargas (D).

Opponents of the Community Immunity Act say the measure upends parents’ rights to be involved in their children’s medical decisions and gives schools authority to require whatever vaccines they choose.

The Act seeks to amend Section 12F, Chapter 112 of the Massachusetts General Laws, which grants physicians authority to treat minors without parental consent in emergency situations “when delay in treatment will endanger the life, limb, or mental well-being of the patient.”

Sen. Rausch said her bill “doesn't mandate vaccines” or “permit a young person to waltz into a pharmacy and get a vaccine."

However, the Act would expand existing law to allow health care providers to treat any minor, with no specified minimum age, for the “prevention” of any infectious diseases the child is “at risk of contracting,” with no prerequisite of a precipitating emergency and without notifying parents.

According to Health Choice, “[t]hese bills would allow children to be vaccinated without their parents’ consent or knowledge, even if the child is young or intellectually disabled. Parents might not ever know since medical records would be hidden from parents without a court order.”

The provision could create medical complications. Parents unaware that their children already received a shot without their consent could unwittingly have their children inoculated again with the same vaccine at a standard health care appointment.

Moreover, the bill fails to prevent authority figures from soliciting consent from minors without parental involvement.

Existing Massachusetts law does not require children to provide informed consent under Section 12F, which Health Choice said “is justifiable only on the basis that this statute is intended to provide for emergency treatments of minors, not preventative treatment.”

“At all times,” the coalition noted, “every person (and every minor) is at some level of risk of contracting illnesses. As such, these proposed amendments would permit a health care provider to administer any preventative treatment designed to prevent any infectious disease, including vaccines, to any minor regardless of their capacity to provide informed consent. This is a fundamental departure from established law in the Commonwealth.”

Arguing that “medical decision-making for children is a fundamental right of parents that needs to be preserved,” Health Choice suggested that “parents would likely be astonished and concerned by this provision.”  

The press release said the bills would also “limit the criteria for medical exemptions” to a single list created by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which “was never meant to define all circumstances necessitating a medical exemption.” 

“A one-size-fits-all approach is simply bad medicine,” Health Choice said.

The Community Immunity Act would additionally allow educational institutions to create their own immunization requirements, which might include vaccines not otherwise required by the Department of Public Health.

Further, the coalition says the legislation would “strongly incentivize” private daycares, schools, and camps “to refuse religious exemptions to avoid being publicly branded as an ‘elevated risk program.’”

The Massachusetts proposal is similar to a 2020 Washington, D.C. law which permits children eleven years old and older to consent to vaccination without parental knowledge. Four parents have filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court, seeking a court order declaring the law unconstitutional.

As Children’s Health Defense pointed out, the D.C. Act has dire implications for the health of children. If parents do not know their child was vaccinated at school, they may not recognize vaccine adverse reactions. Serious adverse reactions require immediate medical treatment and are contraindications to further vaccination. Also, if the family doctor is unaware the child was vaccinated at school, additional vaccines may be administered too close in time to those given at school. Vaccine manufacturers, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and government public health authorities publish strict warnings about the timing of vaccines. Children are typically unaware of their family medical history and any inherent contraindications to vaccines.

‘Systemic bias against those with differing religious beliefs’

In addition to the Community Immunity Act, Health Choice 4 Action also took aim at House Bill 2411 introduced by Rep. Vargas.

The bill would prevent students attending institutions ranging from daycare to college from obtaining religious exemptions, and force students with current exemptions to take the required vaccines in order to continue their education.

A summary of the bill produced by Health Choice said the measure “demonstrates systemic bias against those with differing religious beliefs.”  

Rep. Vargas defended his move to strip out the religious exemption to vaccination, saying that “whether we like it or not, Americans, Massachusetts residents and human beings have a responsibility for the health and safety of one another.” 

At the hearing early this week, concerned parents argued that the bills unfairly target families with strong religious beliefs and infringe on medical and religious liberty.

“When evaluating the proposed bills, please contemplate the following questions," said Timothy Murzycki, a father who testified at the committee, “Is this freedom? Is this a democracy? Is this a free and fair society?”

Beth Cook, another parent, called the bills “discriminatory toward families whose sincere moral and religious beliefs influence their decisions regarding vaccination and medical intervention.”

Many pro-lifers have concerns over the use of the bodies of aborted babies in vaccine development and/or production, and the fact that the only measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine available in the U.S. contains in the syringe DNA of aborted children (cell lines RA273, WI-38, MRC-5). Other parents may not want to follow the exact vaccine schedule recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). That vaccine schedule, for example, recommends newborns be vaccinated for hepatitis B, which is spread through dirty needle sharing or sex with an infected person.

Despite differing approaches, Rep. Vargas said his bill and the Community Immunity bills are intended to accomplish the same goal, which he said is addressing “the high rates of vaccine exemptions in our state."

 But Health Choice 4 Action says “there is no immunization problem in Massachusetts.”

“We enjoy the highest school vaccination rates in the country, without coercive measures, and have had no outbreaks of vaccine preventable illness in school-aged children in the past decade,” the coalition said.

Nonetheless, Vargas said that “as lawmakers, we have to reason with the facts, listen to trained experts, trust the science and make tough decisions to stop preventable death and illness. We learned this the hard way during the pandemic.’

Versions of the bills currently under consideration had been proposed in 2019 but were killed off or died in committee. They were revived this year amid renewed interest due to COVID-19.

‘Divisive, bureaucratic, not evidence based’: University of Toronto professor blasts vaccine passports

TORONTO, Ontario, July 15, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – In the wake of vaccine certification requirements being implemented in some Canadian provinces, a bioethics professor at the University of Toronto has publicly stated that “vaccine passports” are unnecessary and will lead to an increase of fear, anxiety, and division among the public.

Dr. Kerry Bowman, Ph.D., also an expert in global health, has been speaking out on the social effects of vaccine passports for some months, and has criticized the implementation of COVID-19 certification policies publicly since at least June, saying that such “passports” are “divisive, they’re bureaucratic, and they’re often not evidence based.”

Within the last few weeks, the Quebec government revealed its intention to require COVID-19 “vaccine” certification in the autumn, should there be another ostensible outbreak of the virus, or a variant thereof, spread throughout the population. 

“The vaccination passport is going to be used if, and only if, transmission or outbreaks justify us doing so in a certain sector of activity, or a given territory,” Health Minister Christian Dubé insisted.

While public services and those deemed essential by the Legault government will not be restricted, others such as gyms, bars, concerts, sporting events, and festivals could be placed on a “moderate” or “high” risk category list, restricting entry to the double jabbed.

The Manitoba administration, in like manner, has initiated an “immunization card” scheme within its province for those who have a Manitoba health card and have “received all required doses of a vaccine (that means for Pfizer, Moderna or AstraZeneca, you require two doses).” Applicants are reminded to wait at least two weeks since their final dose before applying for the certificate, in order to be considered “fully vaccinated.”

As things stand, the scheme allows certified “immunized” individuals to forego quarantine requirements when travelling between provinces as well as an enhanced ability to visit friends and family in hospitals.

So great has been the demand for the certificates that the government website now displays a disclaimer, informing hopeful passport holders of a backlog in production of the cards, and suggesting that “digital cards are available for use immediately” while physical certificates “will be mailed as soon as supplies are available.”

For those who decide not to take the jab in Manitoba, they are advised that “you may not be able to take part in specific activities that can be accessed by individuals who are fully-immunized. You are strongly encouraged to continue to practice physical distancing, wear a mask and reduce contact with people outside your household.”

Bowman criticized the Manitoba government’s approach, explaining that holding restrictions over citizens who don’t take the “vaccines” will place immense pressure on them, essentially coercing them into taking the jab. 

“There’s this anxiety that everyone’s going to need one. And I’m not sure we’re going to need any,” the professor lamented. Manitobans will undoubtedly feel that “if they don’t have this, that they’re going to have really very restricted lives.”

“The last thing we need in this challenging, difficult world we live in is one more thing to divide people,” Bowman added.

Regarding Quebec’s passport scheme, Bowman noted the need for the government to demonstrate why it is necessary to prove immunity to COVID-19 to engage in normal activities, describing the move as “a kind of nudge to the younger generation to get on with it and get vaccinated.”

“But you need to show compelling evidence that you need to do this. Anything that creates divisions among people is very problematic, and freedom of movement is a democratic principle that we don’t talk about,” he said.

“There’s ethical concerns with vaccine passports and I think that, if we use them within our country, there really has to be some strong justification for it,” Bowman told CityNews Montreal. “Where you go for coffee, where you go for dinner, where you go for a drink, all of that is monitored. 

“Some people would say ‘So what?’ But the problem is that your movements are being monitored.”

After qualifying that he is “as pro-vaccine as a person can be,” Bowman asked, “if somebody really doesn’t want a vaccine or doesn’t feel safe taking a vaccine, is it really right that their movements are restricted?”

“It’s good to plan [against contagion] but I don’t think we can enact these plans until we can really justify why we need them,” he concluded.

While critical of the rapid deployment of vaccine certificates at this time, he proposed that the responses from government bodies to the coronavirus crisis “have to be proportional,” arguing that passport schemes might yet be justified “if we have a fourth wave that is profoundly serious and a tremendous threat to all of us. I truly hope that doesn’t happen.”

Unlike Bowman, who seems to have held his post at the University of Toronto, other academics who have been outspoken on the politics and science related to COVID-19 have found themselves removed from their teaching positions or otherwise blacklisted by the mainstream media and Big Tech.

Dr. Charles Hoff, a medical doctor in the village of Lytton, British Columbia, for example, raised the alarm in April after many of his First Nations patients suffered Bell’s palsy and other neurological defects after receiving shots of the Moderna developed mRNA gene therapy for COVID-19.

A few weeks later, the Internal Health Authority within the province reprimanded the doctor, removing his ability to work in the emergency room due to spreading “vaccine hesitancy.”

“On 29th of April 2021, the Interior Health Authority (IHA) suspended my clinical privileges, for the crime of causing ‘vaccine hesitancy,’ for speaking out about my vaccine injured patients. So I am no longer allowed to work in the ER,” Hoff told True North in a May 25 interview.

“I am still permitted to see patients in my private practice, which is not under the jurisdiction of the Interior Health authority, but I have effectively lost about 50% of my income. This is the price of advocating for the safety of my patients,” he added.

Although both Quebec and Manitoba have signaled a move towards vaccine certification and adjoining restrictions, province leaders Jason Kenny of Alberta and Scott Moe of Saskatchewan have both made strong announcements against the notion of such requirements.

On Monday Kenny announced his opposition to vaccine passports during the annual Calgary Stampede pancake breakfast, stating that “we will not facilitate or accept vaccine passports” in the region. 

“I believe they would in principle contravene the Health Information Act and also possibly the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, we also amended the Public Health Act to remove the 110-year-old power allowing Alberta to force people to be inoculated,” the Alberta Premier confirmed.

While still encouraging vaccine uptake, Moe declared that to ask for any vaccine status “would be a potential violation of health information privacy,” thus asserting that COVID immunity documentation “will not be a provincial requirement in Saskatchewan” in a June 29 press conference.

Why closing ‘clinics’ saves lives: Study finds fewer abortions when women have to travel

The Journal of the American Medical Association found that increased distances to abortion centers are associated with lower abortion rates.

July 15, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – A recently published U.S. study has found that the farther a woman lives from an abortion center the less likely she is, statistically, to abort her child.

The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) study, which collected abortion data from 1,948 counties, found that increases in median travel distance to the nearest abortion center were associated with significant reductions in median abortion rate, measured per county.

For every 1000 female residents of reproductive age a median rate of 21.1 abortions were recorded for a median travel distance of less than five miles to the nearest abortion center. This fell to 12.2 abortions for median distances of five to fifteen miles, and further dropped to 3.9 abortions for distances of 120 miles or more. 

“Some people argue that if Roe v. Wade is overturned and some states protect preborn children – women will simply obtain abortions in other states where the laws are more permissive.  However, this study shows that the travel involved with heading to another state will dissuade some women from obtaining abortions,” said Dr. Michael New, a research scholar who studied Political Science and Statistics at Stanford University.

In 2019, The Guttmacher Institute shared U.S. data from 2014 reporting that 65 percent of women seeking abortions traveled less than 25 miles one-way for their abortion, 17 percent traveled 25 to 49 miles, and 18 percent traveled more than 50 miles away for their abortion.

The JAMA study authors cite several other regional studies which they claim are “consistent” with their own study findings, “suggesting this phenomenon is robust to differing analytic approaches.”

One study by the Institute of Labor Economics analyzed the impact of abortion access on abortion rates using “cross-county variation in access to abortion” generated by Texas legislation that “significantly reduced funding for family planning services and increased restrictions on abortion clinic operations.”

The study found that “[i]n-state abortions fell 20% and births rose 3% in counties that no longer had an abortion provider within 50 miles.” The authors acknowledged that in-state abortion numbers “may not capture the total effect on abortions” because of potential out-of-state or self-administered abortions. They described the three percent birth increase as “more informative of the total effect on fertility-related behaviors.”

The study also found that “births increased 1% and contraceptive purchases rose 8% in counties without a publicly-funded family planning clinic within 25 miles.”

The JAMA study attempts to address some of its limitations, such as its assumption that women would travel to the nearest abortion center, acknowledging that factors such as financial limitations may impact the choice of an abortion facility. It notes that a national survey showed that 80 percent of women who aborted their children “went to the nearest facility or to one that was within 15 miles of the nearest facility.”

The authors of the study also sought to address the possibility of “reverse causality” – that is, a scenario where the presence of abortion facilities are an indication of abortion demand – by citing a U.S. study, published in December 2020, that “showed that increased distance to abortion providers accounted for their observed declines in the abortion rate.”

The JAMA study authors posed state laws and regulations as an explanation for lack of abortion facilities in a given location, rather than lack of demand.

Is this alleged sex abuser who goes by the name of ‘Ruby’ a man or woman? Police, media say woman

'Ruby' Ebby Toronto Police Service

By Michael Haynes

TORONTO, Canada, July 15, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – A Toronto person who appears to almost certainly be a man has been charged with sexually assaulting a six-year-old boy, yet the mainstream media are describing the assaulter as a female, as he claims to be a woman called “Ruby.”

Toronto Police Service (TPS) issued a press release July 13, announcing that they are conducting a sexual assault investigation following an arrest. On June 8, the police had arrested and charged 33-year-old man, “Ruby” Ebby, with two offenses: “1. Sexual Interference with a Person Under the age of 16. 2. Sexual Assault.”

Ebby was arrested after a six-year-old boy was assaulted in Walter Saunders Park, on May 20. The Toronto police now believe that there may be additional victims and Ebby will appear in court on July 21.

However, both the police and the mainstream media describe Ebby as female, despite Ebby being clearly male. The TPS press release refers to Ebby as “she.”

Toronto’s CTV News does likewise, titling their report “Woman charged after allegedly sexually assaulting 6-year-old boy in Toronto park.” The text of the article continues to refer to Ebby as “woman,” and “she.”

The Toronto Sun follows suit, although the Toronto Star managed to report the incident without referring to Ebby as either male or female.

The picture provided to all media outlets by the TPS shows a person who appears to be a white male with close cut facial hair.

The pandering of the police and media to Ebby’s identifying as female is not without precedent. One similar incident in 2014 was of a British man detained while attempting to enter Canada illegally, and was subsequently sent to a female prison, after he protested against being placed in a male prison. The man’s passport identified him as a woman name Avery Edison.

In fact, LifeSiteNews previously reported how Correctional Services Canada (CSC) was quietly moving dangerous and violent male criminals into female prisons, due to their claim of being female.

Former inmate and prison advocate Heather Mason told the Toronto Sun’s Brad Hunter in 2019 that male criminals housed with women include serial pedophile Matthew “Madilyn” Harks (reportedly now released); contract killer Fallon Aubee; child killer and rapist “Tara” Desousa (formerly Adam Laboucane); murderer John “Jamie” Boulachanis; and serial sex offender Patrick “Tara” Pearsall.

Mason previously wrote on Facebook that the CSC was even aware of the danger which these men posed to the female inmates, as another inmate in Ontario had revealed to Mason how CSC medical staff were “handing out the morning after pill” to female prisoners.

“They currently have three ‘trans’ inmates here and I use the term trans loosely here because they are openly telling the other female inmates they are not really trans. They are only at GVI to have sex with the females,” she noted.

Reporting on Mason’s testimony, Brad Hunter wrote for the Toronto Sun at the time: “These self-identifying transgender jailbirds are dangerous. And the female cons know it.”

In a 2018 op-ed, LifeSite’s Jonathan Van Maren noted the global phenomena of male prisoners claiming to be female and being awarded “cushier prison sentences” as a result.

“Most people recognize that this is insane, but because they have accepted (or been forced to accept) the premises of the gender fluid ideology, they have nothing to say that will not result in an immediate lynching for the crime of ‘transphobia,’ which these days is a worse crime than locking up a rapist with a bunch of women,” wrote Van Maren.

Thousands of French protesters take to the streets nationwide in opposition to mandatory vaccines and COVID passports

In total, nearly 20,000 demonstrated against what many are calling 'a sanitary dictatorship.' And everywhere, the same slogan could be heard: 'Liberté!' ('Freedom!')

PARIS, France, July 15, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — Following President Macron’s announcement on Monday to extend the sanitary pass and make vaccination mandatory for healthcare workers, thousands of people took the streets this Wednesday, July 14, France’s national day. 

As President Macron watched the annual military parade on the famous Avenue des Champs-Elysées, demonstrations were taking place in a great number of French cities: Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux, Toulouse, Bayonne, Avignon, Nantes and others.

According to official figures nearly 20,000 demonstrated against what many are calling “a sanitary dictatorship.” And everywhere, the same slogan could be heard: “Liberté!” (“Freedom!”) The official figures for the number of people who protested are likely underestimated, as is generally the case for protests against government policies.

The decisions announced by President Macron on Monday included: 

  • Mandatory vaccination for all healthcare workers with sanctions to be enforced as early as the 15th September for those who don’t comply.

  • A sanitary pass for people over 12 to access places of leisure and culture with room for 50 people or more (including cinemas) as early as July 21.

  • The extension of this pass to other public spaces including cafés, restaurants and public transport later this summer.

Since the announcement, Macron has received criticism from a number of French politicians who have accused him of blatantly contradicting himself. Indeed, back in December of 2020 the French President had stated in an interview with French online news site Brut:

I do not believe in mandatory vaccination for this particular vaccine. First of all, let’s be honest here, we do not know everything about this vaccine yet (…) And I believe much more in persuasion through transparency than in coercion.

In his statement on Monday, Macron reiterated: “Vaccination is not yet mandatory for everyone”. 

But the very measures he announced appear to contradict that statement, as non-vaccinated people will soon be refused access to even the most basic public venues if they fail to produce a sanitary pass upon entry. And workers of some professions, such as healthcare workers, who refuse to get vaccinated before September 15 even risk losing their livelihoods.

Reactions from the French public were initially mixed following the President’s announcement.

On Monday evening, huge numbers rushed to book vaccination appointments using the app “Tousanticovid” (“All against covid”). Unable to cope with the sudden volume of connections, the app quickly became saturated and crashed. 

On Tuesday, queues formed quickly in front of vaccination centres in many French cities; some people explained there that they had previously no intention to receive the vaccine but now felt obliged to do so, like Christophe, 47 who told French newspaper Le Parisien:

I came because I’m forced to. I was told this morning I didn’t have a choice. I was against taking the vaccine as I saw it as a violation of my freedom (…) I was going to refrain from going out, in bars and restaurants, but since I have to take the train to spend a holiday with my 3-year-old-daughter…

Others rushed to the web in search of ways to get false passes. On Monday evening the key words “fake sanitary pass” exploded on Google’s search engine and some are already being sold for up to 250 euros as French news channel RMC reported.

But on Wednesday, France’s national day, a wave of opposition washed over the country as demonstrators took to the streets of Paris and many other French cities. A total of 53 demonstrations took place throughout the whole of France according to the French Ministry of the Interior which brought the total number of protesters to nearly 20,000, including 1,900 in Toulouse, 1,400 in Lyon and Chambery, 1,200 in Bordeaux and Montpellier and 800 in Nantes and Annecy. 

In Paris, thousands marched in the streets from place de la République to place de Clichy. The demonstrations started out peacefully but after instances of vandalism as well as a departure from the pre-planned route, Parisian police used tear-gas in some places to disperse the crowds. 

On this symbolic day for France and Paris when 232 years ago Parisian rioters stormed the Bastille prison, an event which is commonly accepted as the starting point of the French Revolution, Parisians were heard shouting “Liberté!” (freedom!) or “On est pas des cobayes!” (“We are not guinea pigs!”) 

Peoples of all backgrounds and lines of work were present at these protests and rallies to denounce the imposition of the sanitary pass in public places:

Cathy, one of those demonstrating yesterday, told Le Parisien:

I am against the sanitary pass because I think it is ridiculous to force people to get jabs so they can get a coffee somewhere or get on a train. This vaccine scares me because we have no perspective on it. We don’t know what’s in it, it’s not a real vaccine. Everyone can choose what they want to do but I don’t want to do it, and I don’t want to be coerced (…) I think it’s dictatorial.

One group whose presence at the demonstration was particularly noticeable were the healthcare workers who are directly threatened by this new decision: 

“I work as a care assistant and I’ve decided not to get vaccinated because I think we don’t have enough perspective on this vaccine yet…” declared one of them to regional newspaper La Provence at a demonstration in the city of Avignon. 

Some even said they were ready to quit their job as a way to show their opposition. That’s the case of Coralie, another healthcare worker who told French news channel RMC:

I have to get vaccinated before the September 15, but I’ve decided to resign, I will fight until the end.

Healthcare professionals have been at the front line of the COVID crisis since the beginning and are now the first ones at risk of losing their jobs following the President’s decision.

No COVID-19 vaccines needed for children and teens: Former HHS adviser and epidemiologist

COVID-19 vaccines, not the virus, are hurting our healthy young people
Thu Jul 15, 2021 - 11:08 am EST

Paul Elias Alexander, PhD Follow

HAMILTON, Ontario, July 15, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — Children and teens do not need COVID-19 vaccines and can be harmed by them, argues Dr. Paul Elias Alexander, a former senior adviser to COVID pandemic policy in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). In a new testimony signed also by his colleagues,  Dr. Howard Tenenbaum of the University of Toronto and Dr. Parvez Dara, Alexander argues that only certain groups — which do not include healthy young people — were ever at risk during the coronavirus pandemic. 

How did we arrive at the insane and dangerous idea to mass vaccinate our children with a vaccine that is not tested for safety when they have a near statistical zero risk of severe illness or death from the disease it allegedly prevents?

Let me begin by arguing that this COVID-19 pandemic was not the emergency many claimed it was. This was an illness devastating to elderly high-risk persons, and we cannot discount this.  However, we knew very early on who the high-risk groups were, and we created devastation with failed lockdown policies when a focused age-and-risk targeted approach was needed. 

Illogically, we locked down the healthy people and failed to protect the vulnerable. In effect, global COVID-19 Task Forces, the medical advisors, and all the television medical experts were flat wrong in all their positions and policies. The lockdowns, the school closures, the masks, the mask mandates, the shelter-in-place, and all of the COVID policies (the so-called ‘non-pharmaceutical interventions’) were catastrophic failures and caused more harm and deaths than anything. The Task Forces and their governments, the bureaucrats, the technocrats, and the now famous media medical doctors: they all failed. Why? Why did our governments continue these punitive unsound lockdown policies when there was clear evidence from summer 2020 that they were very harmful?  

We knew very early on, in May or even April 2020, that COVID-19 exploited risk factors and that the virus was amenable to risk stratification. We knew that one’s baseline risk, determined by such factors as age, obesity, renal disease or heart disease,  predicted whether or not one would suffer severe illness or death from the virus, and we quickly knew how to manage COVID patients. We have also discovered that children, especially poorer children, have fared badly as a result of the COVID lockdown and school closure polices. Children in the United States and elsewhere have committed suicide, not due to the virus, but due to the lockdown policies. The collateral damage has been devastating. 

There is zero benefit to children from the vaccine. If children are infected with the virus, they are typically asymptomatic, and the disease is very mild and non-consequential. However, the potential harm from vaccines is severe. Just look at the cases of myocarditis and pericarditis that have emerged in our teens, especially boys, due to the vaccines.  

My position is that there must be no mass-vaccination of our children, teenagers, and young adults with these vaccines. The vaccine roll-out must be stopped immediately.  The focus of this vaccine program must be only people at high risk from the disease. These people could derive benefit if the vaccines are effective, even modestly so. Yes, properly developed, the vaccine can be helpful for certain high-risk sub-groups.  

It is not that the relative benefits versus risks for the young and healthy remain unclear. No, there are no benefits, and the risks are serious if they materialize. We are witnessing this now with daily reports of adverse effects and deaths due to the temporal links to the vaccines (blood clots, bleeding disorders, myocarditis, and deaths). The balance (and trade-offs) of benefits versus risks differs between children and adults. The potential for serious adverse effects is real, and we cannot rule this out because we did not study it and “excluded” this in the clinical trials. The testing of these vaccines was not followed for the correct duration for such a study. When it comes to studies on the vaccine and children, the same will apply, and this is a major problem. We cannot sidestep the safety data, and I am afraid we did just that. If a vaccine takes approximately 10 to 12 years to completion with a follow-up for safety as a key component, and we did not do this for these vaccines, then how can we ever say that they are safe? This is illogical, irrational, absurd, unscientific, duplicitous, and reckless. It is a lie. 

Our position is that the vaccines should be prioritized and given only to the very elderly and other high-risk persons. Based on the CDC's own risk estimates, if a given person is 70 years old or younger and of reasonable health, the risk of survival if infected with the virus is 99.95%. Recent modelling by John Ioannidis of Stanford suggests that the general IFR [infection fatality rate] is 0.15%, and for persons less than 70 years, it is 0.05%. 

For parents, the question is really one of risk-management. Do I subject my child, who is healthy and well, to a vaccine that confers no benefit, yet carries the potential for serious harm? Why subject my child to this when vaccine developers like AstraZeneca, public health agencies like the CDC, and regulators like the FDA have not done their due diligence?  Moreover, the argument that we need child vaccination to help arrive at population level ‘herd’ immunity is duplicitous, misguided, and actually false. If you decide to disregard cross protection (T-cell cross-reactivity) that exists from prior common cold coronavirus exposures (even in adults), and even pretend that there is no existing immunity from persons who had COVID-19 infection and recovered, then you can make that claim. But it would be a falsehood, and thus there is no need to vaccinate children to achieve herd immunity. Children are not needed to “help protect the adults.” We have never ever placed our children at risk to protect adults; it is supposed to be the other way around. We have never asked our children to risk their lives for adults’ health.  

Our position, based on both the initial and the accumulated evidence, has always been that in response to this pandemic we 

i)  first protect the elderly in their private homes and nursing homes (assisted living and long-term facilities), principally by preventing staff from bringing infection to them);

ii)  use early outpatient treatment, including background nutraceuticals such as Vitamin D, Vitamin C, and zinc along with hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin as the anti-viral backbone, budesonide, methylprednisolone, high-dose aspirin, enoxaparin (lovenox), low molecular weight heparin etc. (see Risch, McCullough, Zelenko, Ladapo, Kory etc.), to address the three phases of COVID-19 (i.e., the viral replication phase, the ARDS ‘florid pneumonia’ hyper-immune inflammatory phase, and the vascular blood clotting phase);

iii)  publicize the need to get sunlight and/or Vitamin D supplements; and

iv) publicize the need for body weight control. 

At the same time, we encourage improved hand-washing hygiene, and we quarantine/isolate and test only people with symptoms of COVID-19.  

We never isolate or test asymptomatic people as neither confers a benefit. Isolation is actually very harmful to the person and to society at large. At the same time, we allow the low-risk “healthy” and “well” in our society to live largely unfettered lives with limited disturbance and restrictions, taking only reasonable precautions, so that they can become infected ‘naturally’ and ‘harmlessly’. We never mean to deliberately infect people; we mean only to allow life to go on unimpeded and allow the ‘well’ who are best able to face the pathogen with their robust immune systems to develop immunity naturally. This would, in turn, protect the elderly and other high-risk people. Natural exposure immunity is far more optimal, robust, durable, and long-lasting than any immunity conferred by a vaccine with a very narrow “spike-specific” immunity with a very narrow immune library of antibodies.  

We never lock down schools; there was, in fact, no basis for this. We harmed our children by doing this, and it will take decades to recover the losses. In fact, poor children have been extensively harmed due to the school closures, for they often get their only meals at school, and that is where they get their sight and hearing tested. The school offers a level of protection from abuse.  Abuse is often brought to the attention for the first time in the school setting. The safest place, in terms of being at very low risk, for both children and teachers is the school setting. 

The most up-to-date data by the American Academy of Pediatrics showed that “Children were 0.00%-0.19% of all COVID-19 deaths, and 10 [US] states reported zero child deaths. In states reporting, 0.00%-0.03% of all child COVID-19 cases resulted in death.” This is the data.  

Based on the reporting of CDC data, 266 children aged 0 to 17 years in the US have died of COVID-19, and we mourn each death. We cannot even imagine the pain for the grieving parents and family. Each death of a child is devastating. But let us put this in perspective to yearly seasonal influenza. During the 2018-2019 influenza season, 477 children aged 0 to 17 died of the regular flu, and we did not mask the nation, close schools, or seek to mass- vaccinate children. The science is stable and settled globally: children are at near statistical zero risk of dying from COVID-19.  

We note also that neither vaccine developers nor anyone involved in advocacy for the vaccines is liable. But without liability, how then can parents trust them? Why would the vaccine developers (Moderna et al.), the FDA, CDC, NIH, Dr. Fauci, Dr. Walensky, and Dr. Collins not put liability protection on the table?  We ask, “Come on, you are smart people, very intelligent we are told, so if you people believe that the vaccine is safe for our children, and given their near zero risk of illness, then put liability protection on the table.  Allow yourselves to be held legally responsible. If you believe the vaccines are safe enough for our children to be subjected to them, then put liability protection on the table and offer to give it up completely. Then parents will trust you.”  

We hope the vaccines are successful and safe — we really do, but we have no confidence in them at this time given what has transpired in the roll-out. We are stepping up here to defend our children. We are outraged and shocked by government leaders and public health officials calling for mass vaccination when there is no need. We support vaccinations in general but not these COVID-19 vaccines in our children, not for this level of near non-existent risk from the virus. The vaccines were sub-optimally developed, and this raises serious questions as their effectiveness and, critically, their safety. Several questions emerge that the CDC, NIH, FDA, and vaccine developers must answer publicly before we proceed. To date, they have provided no case. They have failed to present any case to argue why children must be vaccinated, and we will not poke needles into the arms of our precious children just because a Dr. Fauci or Dr. Walensky says with a smile to do so. They are dangerous and pose a severe threat to our children. We caution these people to act in our children’s best interests. 

“COVID-19 spares our children”

What do we know? Well, we know conclusively that COVID-19 spares our children, unlike the seasonal influenza which is far more lethal to children than COVID 19. We know the following points: 

i) Children do not acquire the infection readily, e.g. studies show fewer ACE-2 receptors expressed in their nasal epithelia, and we argue this confers a natural form of protection for children and that a vaccine in the deltoid will bypass this natural protection and potentially place children at levels of risk we have seen in adults since the roll-out began; we refer to the emerging reports of the spike protein being itself a pathogen and deleterious to the vascular endothelium;and we insist this cannot be discounted but studied and clarified urgently. 

ii) Children do not readily spread the infection to other children. 

iii) Children do not spread it readily to adults; it is the other way around. 

iv) Children do not readily take it home; infection arises mainly from adults in home clusters. 

 

v) Children do not become severely ill from it. 

vi) Children do not die from it. 

vii) MISC (multi-symptom inflammatory syndrome), which has been linked by some to COVID infections in children, is very rare, very treatable, and almost all who suffer from it leave the hospital. It is serious, but children rarely die of MISC.  

We also wish to draw attention to the issue of informed consent. Although it has not yet been addressed, it really is, along with vaccine safety, the core issue at hand. Children are in no position to give informed consent, and thus their vaccination with an experimental vaccine is highly unethical. Moreover, there are people administering the vaccine who do not properly obtain meaningful consent even from adults, for they do not know their medical history, nor do they explain the benefits or risks of the vaccines. Informed consent is not saying "Hey, roll up your sleeve.” It is far more than that, for there are serious consequences from a vaccine, and the person getting the shot must be informed of them. The upsides and downsides of the vaccine must be fully explained. We argue not one person who has been inoculated in this COVID vaccine roll-out has consented according to ethical guidelines.

In conclusion, we again argue that it is dangerous to rush to vaccinate low-risk children with vaccines untested for safety. This recklessness could result in our children enduring decades of severe disabilities. We are for vaccines and see the need when properly developed; they save lives. But they must be appropriately developed, and the emerging adverse effects and the lack of safety data for these COVID-19 vaccines raise serious concerns about their impact upon children. The benefits just do not outweigh the risks, and to claim that we need kids taking the vaccine is in our view very irresponsible. We conclude that our children must be fully exempt from any of the existing COVID-19 vaccines, at least until proper studies are conducted to collect the proper safety data. But, in fact, the vast majority of children are not appropriate candidates for any of these vaccines, given their low statistical zero risk from COVID-19. Not now, not in the future.

There is no urgency. There is no basis for the vaccine in children, and those advocating for it have presented no evidence to support this. It must not be allowed in any manner, even if shown to be “effective.” There is no need, and there are serious safety concerns. Parents must take the time now to think this through carefully and be prepared to step up and say “no." Be prepared to fight. This is the cause. This is the hill we are willing to die on. Our children are depending on us now to protect them and wage this battle for them.

Democrats push HHS budget that directly funds abortions

Traditionally included every year in federal budgets with little objection, the Hyde Amendment is estimated to have saved more than 2 million lives since its adoption decades ago by forbidding most taxpayer dollars from funding abortions.

WASHINGTON, D.C., July 15, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – House Democrats on Monday submitted to the House Appropriations Committee a proposed budget for the federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that omits formerly-bipartisan language that for years has spared federal taxpayers from directly funding most abortions.

“Allowing the Hyde Amendment to remain on the books is a disservice to our constituents,” said House Appropriations Committee Chair Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) of the 40-year-old amendment, ABC News reports. “We are finally doing what is right for our mothers, our families and our communities by striking this discriminatory amendment once and for all.”

Traditionally included every year in federal budgets with little objection, the Hyde Amendment is estimated to have saved more than 2 million lives since its adoption decades ago by forbidding most taxpayer dollars from funding abortions except for cases of rape, incest, or threat to a mother’s life.

The move is consistent with President Joe Biden’s own recent proposal of a 2022 fiscal year budget omitting Hyde. Biden had supported the amendment for most of his political career, but abruptly disavowed that support in response to pressure he received during the 2020 primary for the Democrat presidential nomination.

A pro-abortion budget is expected to make it through the Democrat-controlled U.S. House of Representatives with little difficulty, but its fate in the U.S. Senate is more uncertain. Democrats’ hold on the chamber is razor-thin, with a 50-50 margin in which Vice President Kamala Harris can cast tie-breaking votes. 

Even for spending measures that can be passed with simple majorities, however, Senate Democrats require 100% agreement from their own members to succeed – and it remains to be seen whether an anti-Hyde budget can achieve it.

Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia said in June he is “going to support Hyde in every way possible,” though it is not yet known whether Manchin would vote against a final budget without Hyde or whether he would justify a “yes” vote in the name of, as he has said in the past, not letting “the perfect be the enemy of the good.”

French bishops fail to denounce vaccine pass, country’s new ‘sanitary dictatorship’

Those who will be tasked with controlling the population’s compliance with the new rules will not be subject to them, perhaps because the government fears massive resignations and will need every hand on deck to keep track of citizens’ every movement.

ANALYSIS

FRANCE, July 15, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – In a series of tweets on its official account presenting the very short communiqué of the Catholic Church in France, the French bishops made perfunctory comments about Emmanuel Macron’s announcement of what will be to all intents and purposes a coronavirus vaccine pass required for most everyday activities from August onward, if the Parliament adopts the law presently being drafted by the government.

Instead of pointing out the attempt to set up a fully-fledged sanitary dictatorship by way of mandatory inoculation of morally questionable experimental “vaccines,” the French bishops asked everyone to enter the fight against the coronavirus and to “take personal responsibility regarding the vaccine.”

Without going so far as to call on the entire population to get the COVID jab, the leaders of the Catholic Church in France at least suggested that the correct way to join the national effort against COVID was to consider vaccination.

One of them, Denis Moutel, bishop of Saint-Brieuc and Tréguier (Britanny), wrote a follow-up the tweet proclaiming: “To take personal responsibility means to get vaccinated if you haven’t done so already.” Most comments were critical, some energetically so.

Bishop Xavier Malle of Gap et Embrun (French Alps) tweeted this Wednesday: “Let it be known that my account is not a place to display your opinions against the vaccine. So I'm masking those comments. I have been vaccinated - first dose - and am looking forward to the second.”

To date, no statements condemning the vaccine pass have been forthcoming from individual French bishops.

Traditional institutes have kept a low profile on the issue.

Most remarkably, the French bishops have de facto condoned Emmanuel Macron’s Monday evening speech by failing to condemn compulsory vaccination of health workers and the wide extension of the “sanitary pass,” both of which Macron had personally promised would never happen during former declarations to the French citizens.

They have also remained silent about the grave moral issues raised by the four “vaccines” that are at present officially accepted in France: Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, and Johnson & Johnson. In varying degrees they are all linked to the use of fetal cell lines obtained through particularly heinous abortion procedures. And even though the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith has ruled that in case of grave necessity for the protection of lives and in the absence of alternatives such vaccines can be licitly used, the CDF did underscore the need to denounce their manufacturing processes, if only by clear assertion of conscientious objection.

Nor did the operating mode of these shots, which modify the normal operating mode of human cells by tricking them into producing the Spike protein of SARS-CoV-2 in order to promote an immune response, receive a mention. Arguably, modifying the human body in order to make it produce foreign substances is a first incursion into transhumanism, and as such gravely immoral.

As to the dangers associated with the present experimental “vaccines,” they were not mentioned either.

The pastors are leaving their flock out in the open, facing its enemies alone.

The bishops’ statement, entitled: “COVID: after the declaration by the President of the Republic on July 12, 2021,” focused on the fact that the “sanitary pass” will not be required for religious worship.

It said:

Following announcements made by the President of the Republic on July 12 concerning sanitary measures, the French Bishops' Conference (CEF) notes that religions and their public practice have not been mentioned in the list of places that will require a sanitary pass for admission.

As a consequence, the CEF considers that the current rules remain valid: the use of hydro-alcoholic gel, the wearing of masks and all other sanitary measures related to the practice of worship.

Out of concern for the common good, the CEF continues to invite everyone to mobilize against the virus.

It calls on Catholics to take personal responsibility regarding the vaccine.

The CEF will remain vigilant, as it has been since the beginning of the crisis, with regard to the respect of freedom of worship.

That last sentence is a lie. During the first lockdown from March 17 to May 11 2020, the leaders of the Catholic Church in France did exactly nothing to obtain access to churches for public worship, while supermarkets remained open throughout the period. When measures were partially lifted, it was only because traditional Catholic associations such as the AGRIF (a French and Christian defense league) and others, and Ecclesia Dei religious institutes took the matter to the French administrative high court, the Conseil d’Etat, and obtained victory. Not a single bishop accepted to add his name to the list of applicants, although some were privately asked to do so by the original applicants.

Considering that these experimental jabs will already be widely necessary to buy and sell, as well as their moral questionability, it is hard not to see this as a prefiguration, at the least, of the ‘mark of the beast’ in France.

Since Macron’s announcements, the government has made clear that places of worship have not been included in the list of places where the sanitary pass will have to be shown. Responding to a request for clarification by Le Figaro, the Prime Minister’s office indicated that “places of worship are not affected by the sanitary pass because they enjoy constitutional protection.”

It is likely that the government wishes to avoid further litigation following the Conseil d’Etat’s ruling regarding the “fundamental liberty” of freedom of worship in May 2020.

But this is sparse comfort in a rapidly unfolding set-up of tyranny of a hitherto unknown form, where supposedly free citizens are being cornered into accepting the injection of a substance whose mid- and long-term effects are totally unknown, and whose adverse effects are reaching totally unheard-of proportions when compared with existing vaccines, even the more controversial ones.

Considering that these experimental jabs will already be widely necessary to buy and sell, as well as their moral questionability, it is hard not to see this as a prefiguration, at the least, of the “mark of the beast” in France.

In practice, insofar as it requires proof of vaccination or COVID-negative status for a large number of venues that will include all cultural and leisure spaces receiving over 50 people as of July 21, followed in August by restaurants, cafés, hotels, commercial centers (very large and large shopping malls), hospitals, homes for the elderly and the handicapped, airplanes, long-distance trains and buses and the like, the new rules will impose vaccination as the only possible solution. Macron has already stated that the list may be lengthened in the face of the extension of new COVID variants, particularly the “Delta” or Indian variant that is extremely contagious (but sends few to hospital and kills only a handful of those infected). Proving COVID-negative status on a permanent basis would require PCR or anti-genic testing every two days, and these tests will need to be paid out of pocket in the absence of a doctor’s prescription in case of symptoms as of October, to the tune of 30 to 50 euro per test.

In new developments, government sources have revealed that under new COVID measures, people testing positive for SARS-CoV-2 will need to observe 10 days’ isolation in the place of their choice, under control of the “liberty and detention judge” ordinarily responsible for the application of prison sentences, with a daily “exit permit” from 10 to 12 a.m., and verification by the police or the “gendarmerie” (a national police force linked to the army).

It has also been revealed that in all venues where the sanitary pass will be required, those in charge will incur a fine of up to 45,000 euro ($53,000 USD) and up to one year imprisonment for failure to check the pass of any individual traveler, guest, or customer.

All workers in these venues will need to show a sanitary pass, meaning that in practice workers in hospitals, cinemas, restaurants, cafés, hotels, transportation, museums, and many others will be required either to test every two days or to receive a COVID-“vaccine.”

All health workers will be obliged to receive a COVID-jab, under penalty of losing their job and unemployment benefits, but on the other hand some professions that were among those prioritized for reception of the “vaccine” last May have been explicitly excluded from the list of those for whom full “vaccination” will be mandatory as of September 15: the police and the “gendarmerie.”

In other words, those who will be tasked with controlling the population’s compliance with the new rules will not be subject to them, perhaps because the government fears massive resignations and will need every hand on deck to keep track of citizens’ every movement.

In a final twist, Emmanuel Macron will be visiting Lourdes on Friday, July 16. The sanctuary’s rector, Bishop Olivier Ribadeau-Dumas, stated on Tuesday that he is “delighted” that the French president has decided to visit the famous shrine – no other French head of state has done so to date. July 16 marks the anniversary of the Virgin Mary’s last of a series of 18 apparitions to Saint Bernadette Soubirous in 1858.

One of the shrine’s priests, Father Cayla, commented: “Even if Emmanuel Macron is not coming for a religious reason, the Virgin Mary knows how to make use of all events. In Lourdes, she made the afterlife glow, she wanted to build the Church there so that it would become a landmark, a rallying sign, a foretaste of eternal life in our society.”

After the adoption of a gravely transgressive bioethics law in June and now the bid to set up a tyranny of control and destruction of individual liberties in a matter of weeks, the question is rather: will the Blessed Mother of God give the leaders in France the courage to resist?

New COVID law in Ontario ‘being used to encourage our society to accept totalitarian rule’: MPP 

Premier Ford continues to hold unprecedented power over almost 15 million people

TORONTO, Ontario, July 15, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — The government of Ontario revoked the Declaration of Emergency last month, but its leader still has enormous power unprecedented before the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The Reopening Ontario (A Flexible Response to COVID-19) Act (ROA) passed into law on July 21, 2020 for one year. It gave Ontario Premier Doug Ford total legislative authority without having to declare a state of emergency. Under the ROA, Ford can act unilaterally for up to a year to impose coronavirus restrictions and measures without the need of a legislature, votes, or a debate. 

“The ROA and the actions of our Premier are both repugnant and reprehensible,” Randy Hillier, the Independent MPP of Lanark — Frontenac — Kingston, told LifeSiteNews

“They are contrary to good government, to representative government, and they are absolutely unwarranted,” he added.

“They are being used only to instil fear to our society and to encourage our society to accept totalitarian rule.”

Hillier explained that the original Declaration of Emergency was implemented on March 17, 2021 in Ontario. It gave all legislative authority to the Premier. When the Emergency Order expired, the ROA was implemented and was supposed to be in force until July 2021. In March of 2021, Ford re-issued a state of emergency, which he needed in order to shut down the provincial borders, to ensure the police had the authority stop people and demand where they were traveling, and to issue a Stay-at-Home order.  

“These three measures were not included in Bill 195, the Reopening Ontario Act. So lawfully, he had to declare a new state of emergency,” Hillier explained.  

The emergency ended in June 2021, which meant these three measures expired, but Ford’s authority to keep the province locked down remained. 

Hillier told LifeSiteNews that the ROA was meant to be in place for only one year and to end in July 2021. On May 31, 2021, the Ford government voted to extend the ROA till December 2021 even though the coronavirus case rate in Ontario has decreased to 0.001% (as of July 12).  

When asked if the government could legally keep extending the ROA indefinitely, Hillier said yes, adding, “I disagree with it. I think it is reprehensible, but unfortunately they can.” 

The ROA orders the reopening of Ontario into three stages determined by the percentage of the population that has been vaccinated. The Government of Ontario website explains that “Ontario will remain in Step Three until 80 per cent of the eligible population aged 12 and over has received one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 75 per cent have received their second, with no public health unit having less than 70 per cent of their population fully vaccinated.” 

Step Three, the most unrestricted stage of the ROA, insists on social distancing and masking, restricts indoor gatherings to 25 people and outdoor gatherings to 100 people, and continues to limit the number of people at religious services, retail outlets, and public events.  

As of July 13, 2021, 68.78% of the eligible adults in Ontario have received the first jab and 48.17% have received the second dose. 

Hillier is not the only MPP opposed to the ROA. York Centre MPP Roman Baber has also stood against the new law. In January 2021, Baber issued an open letter to Ford calling the lockdowns “deadlier than Covid.” After being booted from Ford’s Progressive Conservative Party for speaking up for his constituents, Baber launched a lawsuit suing the provincial government over the restrictions in the Reopening Act.  

In the summer of 2020, MPP Belinda Karahalios was banished from Ford’s Conservative government for standing against Bill 195 as she felt the Reopening Ontario Act ignored the principles of democracy. 

John Carpay, until recently the head of the the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF), stated in a recent post that “Canadians under 70 have a higher chance of dying in a car accident than they do of dying of Covid. The chance of a child dying of Covid is the same as being hit by lightning.”  

“Covid has a 99.77 percent survival rate, and is harmless to 90 percent of people,” he continued. 

“But ideology hates common sense, so we allow lockdowns to our entire society rather than focusing our efforts sensibly on protecting truly vulnerable individuals, particularly seniors in nursing homes, from this bad annual flu.”

Referring to the mainstream COVID-19 narrative as “Covidism,” Carpay suggested that its grip on civil authority is leading to “incalculable damage.”

“Unfortunately, ideologies inflict incalculable damage on millions of people while coercive state power is in their service,” he wrote.

“But there is hope: truth eventually prevails over falsehood. For the sake of Canada and the entire world, let’s hope that Covidism’s reign ends soon.”

Ontario, Canada’s most populous province, is scheduled to move into Step Three of the reopening act on July 16, 2021.

Alberta Premier says his province will not introduce ‘vaccine passports’ or accept one imposed by the federal gov’t

'We’ve been very clear from the beginning that we will not facilitate or accept vaccine passports,' said Alberta leader Jason Kenney at his annual Calgary Stampede pancake breakfast Monday.

CALGARY, Alberta, July 15, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – The Premier of the Canadian province of Alberta has said that his government will not introduce a provincial “vaccine passport” nor accept one if imposed at the federal level. 

“Opposed. And we’ve been very clear from the beginning that we will not facilitate or accept vaccine passports,” said Alberta leader Jason Kenney at his annual Calgary Stampede pancake breakfast Monday. 

Kenney made the comments in response to a direct question from Rebel News reporter Adam Soos about his take on vaccine passports.

“I believe they would in principle contravene the Health Information Act and also possibly the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, we also amended the Public Health Act to remove the 110-year-old power allowing Alberta to force people to be inoculated.” 

Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in June that in the fall the federal government will be rolling out a system of “national certification of vaccination status” that travelers can use to prove they’ve had the “full” two doses of the COVID-19 jab.

Kenney responded with a simple “yes” when asked if he would fight for Albertans should Trudeau try and mandate a national “vaccine passport.” 

“These folks who are concerned about mandatory vaccines have nothing to be concerned about, and there will be no vaccine passports in Alberta,” he said.

Despite Kenney saying he would fight a federal “vaccine passport,” recently, Trudeau’s office claimed that a “broad consensus” was reached among the nation’s premiers in working to create “a proof of vaccine credential” system for travel.

On July 1, Alberta lifted virtually all COVID-19 restrictions, being the first province in Canada to do so. 

However, to lift all restrictions, the Kenney government mandated that 70 percent of the province had to have received at least one COVID-19 jab.

Kenney was faced with protestors during his annual pancake breakfast. In a video posted by the group called Calgary Freedom Central, some in the crowd at the breakfast chanted, “lock him up” with others holding signs in opposition to the Kenney government’s push to get 70 percent of Albertan’s jabbed before all restrictions were lifted.  

Independent Canadian MP Derek Sloan welcomed Kenney’s comments saying no to vaccine passports in Alberta.

“Good! Every Canadian province should immediately disavow medical apartheid and discrimination based on medical status,” tweeted Sloan

Currently, both Manitoba and Quebec have forms of vaccine proof one can attain in digital form.  

In the late spring, Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister officially launched the province’s immunization card program for those who have received both doses of a COVID-19 vaccine.

In May, the Quebec government announced that they will now send “electronic proof” in the form of a QR code to those who have had a COVID-19 jab. 

Recently, the government in the province of Quebec threatened to enforce a local COVID-19 vaccine passport which would limit access to services deemed non-essential. 

The government of British Columbia said in June that it is working “in concert” with federal authorities for the creation of a “vaccine passport” to be used for international travel.

In May of 2020, Kenney said he had no intention” of making a coronavirus vaccine mandatory, despite the fact that at the time a law existed in his province to allow for this.

In June, the Kenney government passed Bill 66, which repealed a long-standing vaccinations section of the province’s Public Health Act that in theory could be used to force jabs on everyone in the province. 

At the time, the then head of the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF) John Carpay blasted parts of Bill 66, for giving the government dangerous new powers by entrenching the “authoritarianism of the Chief Medical Officer of Health.”

In May, JCCF lawyer Allison Kindle Pejovic told LifeSiteNews that any requirement of a “vaccine passport” to allow Canadians to travel is a “blatant” infringement of one’s personal sovereignty.

Despite removing all COVID-19 restrictions and promising to not introduce “vaccine passports” in Alberta, Kenney’s popularity has been hit amongst his conservative base. 

Harsh COVID-19 restrictions earlier in the year, combined with three Alberta pastors being jailed for defying virus rules, has resulted in a low level of approval for Kenney in the polls

The third Alberta pastor to be jailed, Tim Stephens, wrote a letter to Kenney while in prison, saying that his government’s handling of the coronavirus crisis has made his province an “embarrassment of conservative governments” the world over.

Stephens was freed on bail in early July. 

Alberta Pastor James Coates of Grace Life Church, was jailed for 35 days for defying COVID rules. 

In addition to Coates and Stephens, Pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam church, also located in Calgary, was arrested on a highway and jailed for defying COVID-19 rules. He was released from jail after three days.

Texas Republicans advance election, transgender bills, move to arrest fleeing Dems

On Tuesday, the Republican-led state Senate passed Senate Bill 1, which requires absentee voters to provide a form of identification, like a driver’s license or social security number. Senators also moved forward with legislation earlier this week to ban transgender biological males from competing against females.

AUSTIN, Texas, July 15, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Texas senators are advancing election reform and transgender sports bills, as their House colleagues move to arrest Democrats who fled the state this week to block election integrity efforts in the lower chamber. 

On Tuesday, the Republican-led state Senate passed Senate Bill 1, which requires absentee voters to provide a form of identification, like a driver’s license or social security number. Other provisions include bans on drive-thru voting and 24-hour voting, changes to early voting hours, new protections for poll watchers, and a ban on unsolicited mail-in ballot applications. 

S.B. 1 additionally requires that voter rolls be reviewed on a monthly basis for illegal immigrant voters, according to the Texas Tribune. The bill passed 18-4 yesterday, along party lines. The senate maintained a two-thirds quorum, even though nine Democrats fled to Washington, D.C., on Monday with fellow Democrats from the House, the Texas Tribune said

Senators also moved forward with legislation earlier this week to ban transgender biological males from competing against females. The Senate Health and Human Services Committee on Monday approved the bills, Senate Bill 2 and Senate Bill 32, with a 6-0 vote, Breitbart reported.

The two bills would ban public schools and higher education institutions from letting students compete on teams “designated for the biological sex opposite to the student’s biological sex.” 

All six votes in favor of the bills came from Republicans, Breitbart said. Both Democrats and Republican in the Texas House impeded similar legislation earlier this year. 

Along with election reform and the protection of biological sports standards, priorities for Texas’ special session include abortion pill restrictions, a ban on critical race theory, and funding for border security, among other things. Election integrity is listed as the second priority, behind bail reform, according to an agenda released by Republican Gov. Greg Abbott. 

Fleeing Democrats ‘will be arrested’

Texas Republicans’ push for greater election integrity comes as the Lone Star State faces a record number of voter fraud cases. “In my office we have over 500 cases waiting to go trial,” Texas attorney general Ken Paxton said in a Monday appearance on Fox News. “We have more voter fraud cases that we have ever had.

Nevertheless, at least 51 of 67 Democratic House lawmakers fled the state to Washington, D.C., on Monday to deny a quorum needed to pass House Bill 3, a counterpart to Senate Bill 1. 

Democrats had previously blocked Senate Bill 7, another election integrity bill, by walking out and breaking quorum during Texas’ regular legislative session, which ended in May. Gov. Abbott responded last month by defunding the legislature and calling the current special session.

The fleeing Texas Democrats took a chartered jet to D.C., and could be seen bringing on board a case of Miller Lite as well as forgoing face masks, which are required for passengers over two years old on commercial flights due to Biden administration guidelines

The Democrats released a statement upon breaking quorum, demanding that Congress pass the so-called “For the People Act,” which would institutionalize no-excuses mail-in voting  nationwide and abolish voter identification rules. More than 80% of Americans support photo ID, recent polling has found. 

The lawmakers are also lobbying U.S. senators to cut back the Senate filibuster, despite using similar quorum rules to prevent a vote on H.B. 3. 

National Democrats and the White House have celebrated the Texas House Democrats, who have fundraised off of their stunt, with Vice President Harris likening them to people who “died for our right to vote.” 

Republicans, like Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX), slammed them as “pathetic.” 

“Hard to imagine a more delusional group of people – thinking that lying about these bills, hopping on a chartered flight, sipping beer, and skipping work is ‘sacrifice,’” Crenshaw, a Navy SEAL veteran, tweeted. “You guys are pathetic.” 

The Texas Democrats’ flight is ultimately meaningless, as Abbott has promised to continue calling special sessions “all the way up until election next year” to pass an election integrity bill.

On Tuesday, remaining members of the Texas House voted 76-4 to authorize state troopers to arrest the Democrats once they return to the state, NBCDFW reported

Abbott said the day before that they would eventually be arrested and forced back to the capitol. “Once they step back into the state of Texas, they will be arrested and brought to the Texas Capitol, and we will be conducting business,” he said in an interview with the Ingraham Angle.

Texas lawmakers’ trip to the D.C. this week is not the first time that Democrats have pulled such a move, which is known as “fleebagging.” Texas Democrats broke quorum as recently as 2003 by going to Oklahoma and New Mexico in a failed bid to stop redistricting efforts. 

The move also reflects a growing trend of left-wing activists and politicians simply disrupting proceedings to stop bills that they don’t like, as in Ohio, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, and Oklahoma this year.

250+ missing, many likely dead as Cuban regime brutalizes anti-communist protesters

HAVANA, July 15, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – At least one protester has been killed and the number of Cubans missing continues to rise amid a brutal crackdown by the communist regime following historic demonstrations this week. 

The Associated Press reported on Tuesday that Cuba’s Interior Ministry said that one man, Diubis Laurencio Tejeda, 36, died “during a clash between protesters and police” in Arroyo Naranjo, near Havana. The death toll from the government’s clampdown is undoubtedly far higher, however. Videos posted to social media have shown police shooting protesters, including in their homes, and savagely beating people

Footage published by Cubanet, a dissident news outlet, shows a protester bleeding from a gunshot wound to the head, apparently in the city of Santiago de Cuba, Breitbart reported. Bystanders shouted, “they killed him!” 

Independent Cuban newspaper 14 y Medio has also reported that at least one death occurred in the province of Mayabeque and that around 2,000 people were injured in one city. 

Cuban organizations have documented over 200 missing persons in the wake of the protests, which broke out in at least five dozen locations on Sunday and continued in parts of the island into Monday, according to Cubanet. 

A list compiled by the legal assistance organization Cubalex has identified more than 250 individuals who have disappeared or been detained since the demonstrations, as of Wednesday.

Those missing include dissident leaders, like José Daniel Ferrer, head of the Patriotic Union of Cuba (UNPACU), and Luis Manuel Otero Alcántara, leader of a collective of dissident artists in Havana. 

Security forces had detained Father Castor Álvarez, a Catholic priest and critic of the communist government, on Sunday, after he attended protests and reportedly defended protesters. Fr. Álvarez was released the following day, though with a visible head wound, Global Liberty Alliance (GLA) confirmed. A Catholic seminarian remained uncounted for yesterday, however, according to GLA. 

14 y Medio has estimated the full number of Cubans detained or under investigation to be roughly 5,000, citing reports by civil society groups and on social media. Unauthorized protests and other public gatherings are criminalized in Cuba, and authorities have arbitrarily arrested around 30,000 people in the last five years, often for criticizing the government. 

Cuban president Miguel Díaz-Canel, who succeeded Raúl Castro in 2018, vowed a violent response to the protest movement, issuing a “combat order” to fellow communists on Sunday. “We’re calling on all of the revolutionaries in the country, all of the communists, to come out onto the streets and to go to the places where these provocations are going to take place,” he said. “The combat order is given: To the streets, revolutionaries.”

Indeed, counterintelligence officers and brigades of Communist Party militants poured into Havana on Monday, alongside increased police contingents, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The Cuban regime has repeatedly blocked internet access as well, and network monitoring organization Kentiks has said that the entire island lost connection temporarily Sunday afternoon before hours of sporadic outages. Netblocks, another internet monitoring group, also said that access to social media sites, like Facebook and Instagram, had been blocked.

Prominent US doctors slam ‘medical dictator’ Fauci on vaccinating the recovered, as Ingraham calls masking kids a ‘crime against humanity’

Drs. Peter McCullough and Jay Bhattacharya said in the interview that despite, ‘medical dictator’ Fauci’s continued mask guidelines, there remains ‘no benefit to public masking at any level,’ while COVID injections are ‘contrary to the science.’ Masking kids is ‘a crime against humanity,’ added Ingraham.

July 14, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — Two eminent American doctors took Dr. Anthony Fauci to task on Tuesday evening’s Ingraham Anglestating many of the directives given by the presidential advisor are “not true,” that masks “harm the development of children” and provide “no benefit” to the public “at any level.” Furthermore, injecting experimental COVID-19 vaccines into the arms of those who have recovered from the virus is “bad for public health” and “contrary to science,” they said. 

Dr. Peter McCullough was joined by Dr. Jay Bhattacharya as guests on the program with Fox News host Laura Ingraham. McCullough is an internist and cardiologist, along with being a professor of medicine and editor of two major medical journalsBhattacharya is an epidemiologist, an associate professor of medicine at Stanford University Medical School, and a co-author of The Great Barrington Declaration 

Ingraham opened the segment revealing how even some of the mainstream media are now beginning to report what she has been presenting for over a year, including the statistical irrelevancy of COVID-19 in threatening young lives, the injustice of depriving them of live instruction in school, and the mandating of their wearing of masks.

July 15, 2021 (NewsBusters) – While the liberal media disregarded the spread of COVID during Black Lives Matter protests in the summer of 2020, Reuters admitted on Wednesday that it couldn’t stand watching the people of Cuba protesting against communist oppression and crying out for their freedom. And even though Cuba’s authoritarian regime was rounding up journalists and there were still solidarity protests in South Florida, the broadcast networks were done covering the story.

“Cuban protests risk exacerbating COVID-19 spike,” chided Reuters reporters Aislinn Laing and Vivian Sequera in their headline.

“Protests in Cuba will increase the risk of COVID-19 transmission because of an already high level of cases and the more contagious Delta variant, health officials said on Wednesday,” they added, citing the Pan American Health Organization.

They also noted that besides wearing a mask and washing their hands, the PAHO “urged Cubans and tourists visiting the Caribbean nation to avoid crowds…”

“The gathering of individuals for protests... increases the risk of transmission, in particular in cases such as Cuba where you have active transmission in many areas over the last week…” said one official.

Meanwhile, Cuban-Americans in South Florida (plus other Florida residents) were still out in forces trying to bring attention and help to the people still trapped in Cuba. But despite their cries for aid, ABC, CBS, and NBC were finished with the story and had moved on, preferring to talk about President Biden drumming up support on Capitol Hill for in so-called “human infrastructure” plan.

Fortunately, the Fox News Channel’s Special Report saw the importance in the story and continued to give it airtime.

After noting that “thousands” of people were marching in “a dozen cities” because of “food shortages and chronic poverty,” Fox News correspondent Phil Keating reported: “Extra military and police on the streets have locked down any defiance. Dozens of dissidents have been reportedly arrested. The state confirming one protester died.”

He also showed off a video of a journalist getting arrested at her home during a live hit on a Spanish news program.

Keating reported on the ineptitude of the Biden administration as they still had yet to finalize a Cuba policy and they were refusing to take in Cuban refugees fleeing communist oppression:

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki: I would also note though that we’ll do that through the prism of what will help the people of Cuba. Not what will help pad the pockets of the regime. And that is a challenging circumstance, given the control of the regime currently on the people.

Keating: U.S. fears of another wave of Cuban refugee migration a la the 1980 Mario boatlift, led the Homeland Security secretary to warn Cubans not to flee, emphasizing they will not be allowed in.

DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas: The time is never right to attempt migration by sea. To those who risk their lives doing so, this risk is not worth taking.

“And several South Florida Democrats are now urging President Biden to come right down here to Miami and deliver a pro-democracy and human rights message and to voice support, once again, for the Cuban people,” he added as he wrapped up the segment.

The apparent indifference from the broadcast networks was made possible because of lucrative sponsorships from WeatherTech on ABC, Crest on CBS, and GEICO on NBC. Their contact information is linked so you can tell them about the biased news they fund.

Did you know? Little known facts about COVID-19 jabs, media ‘misinformation’ and Bill Gates

The media has played a role in promoting the injections, and there has been widespread 'misinformation' about the nature of the injections, including the liability of the manufacturers.

July 15, 2021 (No Jab for Me) – Editor’s note: The following is Part 4 of a short series of articles, drawn from the research on all things related to COVID-19, by Paul Adams. Part 1 dealing with the experimental vaccines, can be found here, Part 2 on death rates and PCR tests, here, and Part 3 on COVID lawsuits and courageous doctors here.

1. Widespread misinformation about the nature of the injection

Injuries and deaths by mRNA jabs keep rising. VAERS reports 41,015 serious injuries as at July 9/21. Yet at vaccine sites, administrators cannot answer the simple question: “What's in the vaccine?,” while a total of 3.54 billion doses have been distributed worldwide.

Connecticut, in describing the Pfizer and Moderna jabs, commits a crime against humanity with this statement:

“COVID-19 mRNA vaccines provide instructions to cells in our upper arms to make a harmless protein found on the surface of the virus that causes COVID-19.”
However, the spike protein is anything but harmless, it doesn’t confine itself in your arm, it accumulates particularly in ovaries and other organs, can penetrate the brain, and it is still undergoing clinical trials. This is a blatant case of misinformation for which Nazi doctors were hung.

This is Vermont’s full, true and plain half-baked disclosure :

“What are the ingredients in the COVID-19 vaccines? How do they work?

The ingredients in the COVID-19 vaccines are similar to what is found in other vaccines. They contain protein, and fats, salts and polysorbate. The mRNA vaccines (Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna) also have sugars and polyethylene glycol. They do not have any fetal tissue, pork products, eggs, gelatin, latex, microchips or preservatives in them.”

However, they have a lot more than that, like SM-102 and the inorganic medical device/molecule that messages your cells to produce the pathogen, the spike protein, with no OFF switch.

Pennsylvania’s misinformation is as follows:

“Is natural immunity from the COVID-19 disease better than immunity from the vaccine?

Getting COVID-19 may offer some natural protection, known as immunity. But experts don’t know how long this protection lasts, and the risk of severe illness and death from COVID-19 far outweighs any benefits of natural immunity. COVID-19 vaccination will help protect you by creating an antibody response without having to experience sickness.”

The JAB can make people very sick, even kill them, and the survival rate from COVID-19 is 99.9%.

Here’s New York’s version of full, true and plain misinformation:

“Will the vaccine give me COVID?

No. None of the vaccines being studied are made up of materials that can cause disease. For example, the first vaccines authorized for emergency use by the FDA use a small, harmless part of the virus’s genetic material called ‘mRNA’. This is not the virus. mRNA vaccines teach your body to create virus proteins. Your immune system develops antibodies against these proteins that will help you fight the virus that causes COVID-19 if you are exposed to it. That is called an immune response.”

According to immunologists who know about the animal studies, first, you are not given the mRNA of any virus; you are given an inorganic molecule (a medical device) that signals your cells to generate the spike protein of the virus. Your body produces the actual pathogen. The jab instructs your body to produce the pathogen that you don't want to infect you in the first place. There is no OFF switch. The spike protein alone can wreak havoc, as results show. And should you get infected by a wild virus you run the risk of triggering a cytokine storm, as animal studies have shown. You become a ticking time bomb. And you can still get infected by the Covid virus and transmit it to others. The use of the word “harmless” is an egregious crime against humanity.

Here is Nevada’s propaganda:

“Safety

The COVID-19 vaccines were developed according the rigorous standards of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Many thousands of people participated in the clinical trials to ensure the vaccines were safe and effective before being offered to the public. The clinical trials included three phases.

Phase I

Small volunteer group to determine initial safety and potential side effects

Phase II

Larger volunteer group to determine efficacy and dosage

Phase III

Very large volunteer group where a portion of the participants receive the vaccine, and the other portion get the placebo to determine efficacy and side effects.”

No mention of the undergoing clinical trials slated to end in 2023 or of the increasing number of adverse events. No mention either of proven therapeutics or of the high COVID-19 survival rates. Since no informed consent is possible, therefore, a crime against humanity has been committed.

By analyzing this chart on the FAQ sites and documents of all 50 states, you should arrive at only one conclusion: All 50 States, including the elected officials and health administrators, are complicit in the greatest crime against humanity, ever.

The inventor of the mRNA Vaccines, Dr. Robert Malone, warns: “People should not be forced to take experimental COVID vaccines because risks aren’t known and under 18s and those who’ve had virus shouldn’t take it.” Dr. Scott Jensen reiterates Malone’s words.

2. Media promotion of the injections

Documents prove that the media was to be the key player in creating the hype leading up to the promotion of vaccines, that a vaccinate with confidence paper by the CDC exists, along with its British equivalent, and even that lifting lockdowns on condition of vaccination is used as a carrot to get people to accept the jab, as we learn in this CNN interview.

Even the WHO’s COVID-19 specialist, Dr. David Nabarro, who extols universal vaccinations as the prescribed solution to a pandemic with a 99.9% survival rate, denounces lockdowns.

3. CDC employing old tactics

The CDC at one time recommended DDT for in home use. It used the same fear tactics that it’s currently using for Covid,

The CDC owns the patent for the coronavirus that is transmitted to humans; also, a patent for a System & Method to test for COVID-19 was filed in 2015, as corroborated here, and COVID-19 test kits were being shipped around the world in 2018.

The CDC props itself up with such statements as:

“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is the agency Americans trust with their lives. As a global leader in public health, CDC is the nation’s premier health promotion, prevention, and preparedness agency. Whether we are protecting the American people from public health threats, researching emerging diseases, or mobilizing public health programs with our domestic and international partners, we rely on our employees to make a real difference in the health and well-being of people here and around the world.”

Yet the CDC also buys and resells injections at a markup, about $4.6 Billion worth every year, and owns over 20 vaccine patents - according to Robert F. Kennedy Jr. - and is listed on Dun & Bradstreet. Dr. Anthony Fauci, who leads the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), and personally owns 1000 patents, has not said a word about preventative measures that naturally boost one’s immune system.

The CDC concedes that its Head of Immunization Safety makes vaccine policy with Pharma Companies that Sell Vaccines.

And, in a disclosure of one of its best-kept secrets we learn: “The introduction of additional safety surveillance (including active safety surveillance) could potentially lead to negative impact on the public’s confidence in the vaccines and the willingness to participate in vaccination programs.”

Discussing Adverse Events Following Immunization (“AEFI”), the report adds: “Although extensive efforts were initiated to actively find cases of AEFI in multiple settings, underreporting remained a major limitation (e.g., more than 38,000 deaths within one month of vaccination would be expected in the eight countries); however, only 33 deaths were reported.”

Now, there’s a seminal material fact to disclose to someone contemplating getting “vaccinated.”Wouldn’t you agree?

4. Vaccine designed in hours and companies have no liability

The COVID-19 injection was developed in just a few hours on January 25, 2020. No wonder there were no animal studies.

The vaccine companies cannot be sued for injuries. Given the track record of these companies, every measure has been taken to classify these shots as “vaccines.” By the CDC’s definition a vaccine is designed to prevent infection.

But Fauci claims the primary aim of these “vaccines” is to reduce the severity of the illness, not prevent infection. Why? Because he knows the Pfizer and Moderna jabs are not vaccines. Moderna is not in the vaccine business, but in the mRNA business.

Technically, since the delivery system of the Pfizer jab is similar to Moderna’s, those jabs are not vaccines but information therapies, no matter what Merriam Webster says. They are labeled as vaccines to indemnify their makers from lawsuits. The American Society of Gene & Cell Therapy labels them as gene therapeutics.

To highlight this fact even further, according to Bill Gates’ own MSN Lifestyle, the mRNA jab can alter your DNA. He quotes a NCBI article to support this. And Moderna's chief scientist underscores that mRNA jabs hack the software of life (DNA). This is not an anecdotal story. This is a material fact that should be disclosed before informed consent can be given and is the basis for another Crimes Against Humanity tribunal.

Ironically, MSN news now reports that mRNA information therapeutics, predictably, weaken your immune system; something doctors, immunologists and molecular biologists have been warning us about since 2020.

Conflict of interests should be disclosed at the outset, not kept buried in documents.

5. The influential Bill gates

Bill Gates, the philanthropist who invested $10 Billion into vaccines, boasts of how he injects kids with genetically modified organisms, and can’t wait for the next pandemic to hit, as India is still reeling from his polio vaccines.

Bill Gates is also on record pushing for vaccine passports. Parenthetically, various domain names for “vaccinepassport” were filed in 2016 by an entity in Milan, Italy. A vaccine passport would discriminate against these people as they attempt to go about their lives, in violation of The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (42 U.S.C. Section 12101)

Furthermore, Bill Gates is on record pushing for the right vaccines to lower the world population by 10% to 15%, backed by a newspaper article. The World Health Organization (WHO) whistleblower, Dr. Astrid Stuckelberger corroborates this (skip to 3:47). A call in the Italian Parliament has actually been made for Gates’ arrest and trial at the International Criminal Court.

Beware the remaking of the parish by glib marketing experts

What this means in practice — and we know this because these things are have been happening, to some extent, for years — is 'lay-led' parishes, lay-led 'Communion services,' lay parish catechists wholly ignorant of or (or hostile to) the Faith being put in charge of sacramental preparation, and selling off church buildings.

July 15, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – The Church of England has adopted a radical restructuring plan. Giles Fraser quotes a supporter of the new program:

Lay-led churches release the church from key limiting factors. When you don’t need a building and a stipend and long, costly college-based training for every leader of the church … then we can release new people to lead and new churches to form. It also releases the discipleship of people. In church planting, there are no passengers.

The need for expensively educated full-time (and therefore paid) clergy is a “limiting factor” on growth in the sense that for a given sum of money you can only staff a limited number of parishes or missions with them. Buildings are also a “limiting factor”, because they cost money and take time to build, but then so are doctrines, because they might put people off.

There is a grain of truth in this: ecclesial bodies which don’t have lengthy (or any) training for their leaders, or tiresome fixed teachings, can grow very fast. Saying “there are no passengers” means that every member of the congregation is expected to evangelize, maybe even become a “leader” and plant a new community: all you need is a bible, an appealing message, and a carrying voice — or an efficient sound system.

This raises the question of why the whole world hasn’t long since been effectively evangelized, by the kind of independent or loosely organized “preachers” who have roamed Protestant countries since the 16th century. Yes, they can spread like wild fire through a society, “planting churches” in town after town, but these communities can evaporate just as quickly. The part of England in which I live was once a hotbed of this kind of thing, and today their tiny churches can still be seen, often several in one village or small town, almost all of them converted into homes. The tide came in, and the tide went out again.

Not only has the Church of England failed to learn from the history of the last four centuries, which has seen one after another Protestant revival rise and then collapse like a soufflé, but it hasn’t learnt from its own history of the past four decades. Because all this has been tried before: lay leadership, “house churches”, doing without the Eucharist, doing without doctrine, and doing without anyone trained in theology. 

The Catholic Church, alas, is not immune to these temptations. We too have seen a continuous series of slickly packaged initiatives, which involve closing down and selling off church buildings and calling 0n lay people with limited, or no, theological or pastoral training to take up the slack. The latest example in England is the lay “Synod” organized by the Archdiocese of Liverpool in 2020. I don’t doubt the good will of those involved, but the results were predictable. The most popular resolution of this exercise, which absorbed vast amounts of time and energy, and a certain amount of money as well, was that the Church should do more in the way of:

honouring the many vocations of all the baptised, women and men alike. This will also include a strong commitment to lay ministry including training employed ministers, supporting volunteer ministers, and coordinating their work alongside the clergy. 

The next most popular one was practically the same. The Archdiocese was told to:

assist parishes in understanding, meeting, forming and welcoming young people and young adults, and developing locally employed and volunteer youth ministers to work with young people and young adults. 

What this means in practice — and we know this because these things are have been happening, to some extent, for years — is “lay-led” parishes, lay-led “Communion services”, lay parish catechists wholly ignorant of or (or hostile to) the Faith being put in charge of sacramental preparation, and selling off church buildings.

In Britain and North America alike, the Church today is living off what it inherited from the great program of establishing or re-establishing the parish and school system, from practically nothing, in the course of the 19th and early 20th centuries. These buildings, now being flogged off, were mainly funded by the ordinary Catholics of the day, people who suffered real, not relative, poverty, and real, not imaginary, discrimination and hostility. It was common for building contracts to specify that the parishioners would be digging out the foundations by hand.

They built with confidence, because they believed in the power of the Church’s sacraments and doctrines to transform individuals, and ultimately society itself. The reason we are wasting our energy debating the merits of a Church with as few priests as possible, and which says as little about doctrine as possible, is that this power is no longer taken seriously. There can, however, be no evangelization without it.

Official report notes the ‘US Navy is too woke for war’ as diversity trumps military ability

July 15, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Some years ago, I interviewed Stephen Mansfield on his book The Faith of the American Soldier. Embedding with soldiers on the ground in Iraq to research the beliefs of military service members as well as the role of chaplains in serving the troops, he produced a fascinating (and near-unique) account of faith under fire. But one developing aspect of the role of faith in the military, he told me, was the extent to which progressive activists were pushing a new agenda that many chaplains found incompatible with their beliefs. In a war for the hearts and minds of America’s fighting men and women, woke activists were winning — at least, in terms of institutional infiltration.

A recent report indicates that these trends are rapidly accelerating. According to the Daily Mail, an official report says, “the U.S. Navy is too woke for war because of risk averse, politically correct, control-freak top brass.” The report, which was prepared by Rear Admiral Mark Montgomery and Marine Lt. General Robert Schmidle and commissioned by members of Congress in response to two collisions involving Navy ships and the surrender of two seacraft to Iran, “claimed that the Navy’s surface warfare forces have systemic training and leadership issues, including a focus on diversity that overshadows basic readiness skills.”

After anonymously interviewing nearly eighty Naval officers, Montgomery and Schmidle found that 94% of those interviewed believed that recent failures — including the two collisions in the Pacific — were “part of a broader problem in Navy culture or leadership.”

As one retied officer scathingly put it: “I guarantee you every unit in the Navy is up to speed on their diversity training. I’m sorry that I can’t say the same of their ship-handling training.” According to a black lieutenant: “Sometimes I think we care more about whether we have enough diversity officers than if we’ll survive a fight with the Chinese Navy. It’s criminal. They think my only value is as a black woman.”

From across the U.S. Navy, officers — including captains — complained that the top brass appears to value appearances over the ability to fight wars. The report concluded that the excessive focus on social engineering was hurting the Navy’s readiness for combat: “The non-combat curricula consume Navy resources, clog inboxes, create administrative quagmires, and monopolize precious training time. By weighing down sailors with non-combat related training and administrative burdens, both Congress and Navy leaders risk sending them into battle less prepared and less focused than their opponents.”

The final conclusion was a jarring one: “A major peer-level conflict in the 21st Century will likely play out largely in the naval theaters of operations; unlike the surface Navy’s last major war, which concluded 76 years ago, such a conflict will likely proceed swiftly and not permit significant time for organizational learning once it is underway. Unless changes are made, the Navy risks losing the next major conflict.”

Over at The American Conservative, retired U.S. Army colonel Douglas Macgregor, a former senior advisor to the Secretary of Defense, noted that increasingly, military officials are simply following the dictates of civilian overseers — and thus “ready to adopt whatever politically mandated social policy their civilian superiors demand, provided they are left to run the service bureaucracies, control promotions, and structure the forces as they like. Thus, punishing midshipmen who criticize Black Lives Matter and compelling soldiers to march in high heels or to embrace identity politics even in the face of evidence that such policies might weaken, if not subvert, American fighting power is carried out with surprisingly little fanfare.”

For progressives, everything takes a back seat to the imperatives of the revolution — and that includes the fighting readiness of the armed forces.

‘Gay’ conservatives: You can learn from Milo’s intellectual honesty and integrity

‘Every couple, every family on Earth is like a Cathedral … All of us can be creators of a masterpiece; Only male and female together have the task of bringing the love and life, stewardship and care of God’s creation into the rest of the world.’

July 15, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – High-profile, politically engaged conservative men who identify as “gay” could learn a lot from the intellectual honesty and integrity of Milo Yiannopoulos, who has left the world of sodomy and the cortege of lies and partial truths that follow in its train.   

Former Ambassador and National Security Director Richard Grenell, FOX News commentators Guy Benson and Chadwick Moore, “Walk Away” Movement founder Brandon Straka, outspoken pro-Trump activists Scott Presler and Christian Walker, and others – although brilliant, successful men – have not yet tapped into the intellectual curiosity and honesty necessary to reject the “born this way” lie which now defines them. Homosexuality remains a stumbling block, stalling their trajectory beyond political truth toward bigger, preeminent ones.    

In this one way, their personal lives serve as obstructions, hindering the flow of maximum truth into the world as they continue to resist both science and nature. They cling to an impoverished self- and worldview, leading to diminished personal lives and contributing to our pauperized American culture.     

Yiannopoulos and many other formerly gay, lesbian, and transgender men and women have acquiesced to the sublime truth about the complementarity of male and female, entering into an existence at peace with science, with nature, and with God – an existence not attainable while trapped in a barren, monochromatic genderless world, set apart from half the human race. 

Yiannopoulos explained in a recent video, “It’s a year from the day I said I was going to put sodomy and lust behind me and live more closely to God’s wishes for me, and since I did that, everything in my life has begun to get better.”  

Today’s high-powered conservative men leading gay lives would do well to heed Yiannopoulos’s words:

If you’re one of those people that thinks of themselves as “gay,” but in the back of your mind something has always not quite been right about it; You’ve sort of known that this is not really what you want. Perhaps you’ve looked at gay “pride” as I have with a mix of consternation and horror; something twists in the pit of your stomach when you see it?  

If that does describe you — and even if it doesn’t — I have good news for you: “Born this way” is a lie. It’s propaganda. It’s not true.  

You can get better. You can change. You can live as you were always supposed to. When you do that, everything in your life will start to get better. It has for me.

It’s only within the framework – the splendid truth – of complementarity that men and women become fully human. 

Nowhere is this better portrayed than in the magnificent Humanum Series of videos produced by Ecce! Films for the Vatican’s 2014 Colloquium on the Complementarity of Man and Woman.

It’s a cosmic thing

Masculine and feminine are cosmological terms, not artificial stereotypes invented by society, explained prolific Catholic author and Boston College Professor of Philosophy Peter Kreeft. “Every society in the history of the world has seen that.”

Pointing to a seascape with waves splashing across shoreline rocks, “The sea is ‘she’ and the rocks are ‘he,’” said Kreeft. “And of course this is not just a private or biological or subjective thing. This is a cosmic thing.”

“The shore is the most popular place on Earth. Waterfront property is the most expensive real estate anywhere in the world. Why? Because that’s where the sea and the land meet. That’s where man and woman meet,” said Kreeft. “The place where they meet, that’s where all the action is.”        

The great complementarity of heaven and Earth 

“Right there at the start of the whole Bible, we have this rich symbolic account of God’s good creation, which has male plus female at the heart of it, as a signpost, pointing to that 

great complementarity of God’s whole creation of heaven and Earth together,” explained N.T Wright, presently a senior research fellow at the University of Oxford. 

“By putting male and female together as the image of God, there’s something very powerful being said about the rest of creation seeing this symbol and realizing something about who God is, and about how the male and female together have the task of bringing the love and life, stewardship and care of God’s creation into the rest of the world,” said Wright. 

“Every couple, every family on Earth is like a Cathedral,” explained Paris sculptor Fleur Nabert, describing Auguste Rodin’s The Cathedral in which a man and a woman’s hands lightly touch to create a sacred space between. “All of us can be creators of a masterpiece of goodness, beauty, and spirituality.”  

Intellectual bankruptcy  

Abandoning complementarity is a disaster to our humanity “reflecting a tendency to live alone, and aloneness is the number one source of suffering among human beings,” observed Dr. Chady Rahme, Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Notre Dame University, Louaize, Lebanon. 

Not belonging to a family “will also make us more and more selfish people because we didn’t experience love within a family. We didn’t see love between a man and a woman and we did not experience receiving love from both a man and a woman, and so we end up thinking that we should take whatever we can,” continued Rahme. “We become selfish, we become destructive, living in an illusion of self-sufficiency, keeping us alone.”

Capitulating to the baseless demands of LGBT ideology has impoverished the entire western world by halting intellectual curiosity and honesty. The fact that so many can no longer affirm that men are men and women are women, or cannot deny that two men, two women, or a “throuple” can form a marriage reflects the extent of our intellectual bankruptcy. Even “conservative” members of the U.S. Supreme Court have not been immune. 

“Homosexual” and “heterosexual” are contrived terms created for political purposes, not for the enrichment of lives, explained Thérèse Hargot-Jacob, Philosopher, Sexotherapist, and Blogger of Collège Stanislas, Paris, France.  

“These are meaningless terms” asserted Hargot-Jacob. “What we are is women and men, and we are, first and foremost, all human beings. We must remind ourselves of this to free ourselves from anguish.”

And that is precisely what Yiannopoulos and many others have done.  

Yiannopoulos’s announcement that he would open a reparative therapy clinic to help men deal with unwanted same-sex attraction has been met with derision by most of the secular world, yet human flourishing – helping others experience the fullest life possible – is the aim of reparative therapy, according to Paul McHugh, Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.      

We have been told over and over again that gays, lesbians, and transgenders are “born that way,” yet science makes no such claim. In fact, social science, biological science, and every branch of medical science and psychology contradict this claim. And above all, the testimony of nature all around us vividly proclaims the reality that humans are complementary beings. It’s written in our DNA, in every cell in our bodies. 

We are made for each other. 

“Homosexuality doesn’t have to last a lifetime,” declared Greg Quinlan of New Jersey, another man who once identified as gay, during a recent Washington, D.C press conference.

“The God who invented human sexuality also invented the universe. The two fit,” said Prof. Kreeft. “It’s a much happier philosophy. We fit the nature of things.” 

By exempting ourselves from complementarity, as I once did when I lived as a gay man, we are strangers to the universe.  

Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks, former Chief Rabbi of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth, now deceased, explained to those gathered at the 2014 Vatican Colloquium on Complementarity that through the union of man and woman in marriage: 

We come as close as we will ever get to God himself, bringing new life into being, turning the prose of biology into the poetry of the human spirit, redeeming the darkness of the world by the radiance of love. 

The future of humanity and the destiny of each of us extending into eternity come neither through homosexuality nor trans- and multi-genderism, but solely through complementarity.
