January 21, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – A pro-life Polish Catholic man is being intentionally starved and dehydrated to death in a hospital in England despite the pleading of his mother and siblings, as well as the intervention of the Polish government and Catholic leaders in the U.K.

In many ways, this is Alfie Evans all over again, and LifeSite reporter Dorothy Cummings McLean has been the ground learning all the facts. She joined me on my podcast to discuss the latest developments. Click here to donate to help the man and his family.

Also, did you hear that LifeSite’s main YouTube account has been suspended? We’ve been banned for two weeks from our channel after they determined one of our videos about vaccines violated their “community guidelines.”

The show in question was a podcast I did with Dr. Pamela Acker, a microbiologist and vaccine researcher. She and I were discussing the fact that in the development of the fetal cell lines used to develop most vaccines, aborted babies had to still be alive during the tissue extraction process.

There were over 150,000 views on that video before it was removed by YouTube. You can still catch it on the LifeSiteNews Rumble channel. Be sure to check it out by clicking here.

In U.S. news, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris began their first day in office with a prayer service from the White House. And, in fitting fashion, it was an inter-faith, “inter-sexed” prayer service with plenty of rainbow stoles and flag. It also included a high ranking Catholic sister named Norma Pimentel, the CEO of Catholic Charities, the same organization LifeSite has previously reported on as scandalously promoting contraception, abortion, homosexuality and even Marxism. 

LifeSite writer Raymond Wolfe reports that medical doctor and lawyer Simone Gold, the founder of the advocacy group  America’s Frontline Doctors, was arrested on Sunday for having entered the U.S. Capitol on January 6.

The Department of Justice says that she was “released on conditions” and has a virtual hearing scheduled for Thursday. America’s Frontline Doctors is a group of medical professionals who work to promote early COVID-19 therapies such as HCQ and Ivermectin. They also expose the influence of pharmaceutical companies on treatment protocol for the Wuhan virus.

Federal agents arrested Gold in California days after she publicly admitted she followed other protesters into the Capitol building two weeks ago, as Congress was scheduled to certify the 2020 presidential election. “I can certainly speak to the place that I was, and it most emphatically was not a riot,” Gold  told  the  Washington Post  in an interview on January 12. 

“I was incredibly peaceful,” Gold said, adding that she thought protesters were legally entering the Capitol building. 

LifeSite’s Victoria Gisondi also reports on Washington Post  columnist Max Boot, who, in his column, called for the shutting down of Fox News.

“Just as we do with foreign terrorist groups,” he wrote in his  op-ed, “so with domestic terrorists: We need to shut down the influencers who radicalize people and set them on the path toward violence and sedition.” 

Patrick Delaney, another LifeSite reporter, has written about how at the “distinguished” Harvard University there is a petition  by some students and graduates being circulated that demands the university rescind the degrees of various political figures, including former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany;  U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX);  U.S. Rep.  Dan Crenshaw (R-TX);  and several others. Why are they doing this? Because the individuals are guility of spreading  “disinformation” and promoting the “mistrust that created” the “insurrection” on January 6.

After the events of the last three months, President Trump has departed the White House and Washington, D.C.

By SIGNING this petition, please thank President Trump for doing his best to protect Life, Faith and Freedom over the last four years, and wish him all the best and God's blessings for the next chapter of his life.

Every effort will be made to deliver this petition to President Trump, so please SHARE with all of your like-minded family, friends and colleagues.

No president in recent memory, including Ronald Reagan, has done as much to defend innocent preborn children as President Trump.

And, no president in recent memory has done as much to defend our freedoms of speech and religion as President Trump.

Promises made, promises kept. Please see the 'For More Information' section below for a comprehensive list of President Trump's accomplishments for Life, Faith and Freedom.

And, please SIGN and SHARE this petition of gratitude and thank President Trump for all he has done in defense of Life, Faith and Freedom.

On the issues of Life and Family, President Trump has accomplished the following amongst many others:

  • Appointed three supreme court justices, including Amy Coney Barrett, Brett Kavanagh, and Neil Gorsuch, who all appear to hold pro-life values.
  • Reinstituted the Mexico City Policy - preventing American aid from funding abortion and the promotion of abortion.
  • Kept his promise on judicial appointments by appointing more conservative men and women to federal courts of appeals than any president in American history.
  • Put the U.S. into the Geneva Consensus Declaration, which states that family is the "natural and fundamental group unit of society..."
  • And, signed legislation to empower states to defund Planned Parenthood.

And, on the issues of Faith and Freedom, President Trump has done the following amongst many others:

  • Lifted the Obama administration’s contraception mandate that required religious employers like the Little Sisters of the Poor to participate in the provision of contraceptives and abortifacients.
  • Issued an Executive Order on "Promoting Free Speech and Religious Liberty," granting churches more freedom to speak about political issues and elections.
  • Established a White House office tasked with fielding the concerns of religious Americans and monitoring threats as they arise.
  • Released a guidance affirming students have the right to pray in public schools.
  • Announced a new International Religious Freedom Alliance that joins more than two dozen countries to push for religious tolerance and an end to religious persecution.

Again...promises made, promises kept.

Thank you, President Trump, for fighting hard to defend Life, Faith and Freedom. Your legacy will live on, long after you have left office, and we applaud your courage and foresight to fight for these most vital of issues.

May God bless the next chapter of your life, and please keep fighting for Life, Faith, Freedom!

Please SIGN and SHARE to THANK President Trump for doing his best to protect Life, Faith and Freedom!

Meanwhile, in Canada, which is super leftist when compared with the U.S., the Conservative Party (not the liberals) have booted a pro-life Member of Parliament from its ranks. They did this with the same vapid excuse the Democrats are using to try to have their political opponents silenced — on false charges of racism!

Conservative leader Erin O’Toole called on the Party to vote in a secret ballot to oust Derek Sloan for accepting a $131 donation from a “well-known white supremacist” named Paul Fromm to the Conservative Party of Canada in August 2020.   

As it turns out, Fromm used an alias when he donated so there is no way that Sloan could have known. But that didn’t stop a majority of Erin O’Toole’s party from voting to throw Sloan out. And why? Because Derek Sloan is one of the most outspoken pro-life and pro-family MPs in the country. Oh, and this should come as no surprise, but our extremist left-wing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau congratulated the Conservative Leader O’Toole on the move. If that doesn’t tell O’Toole he is in the wrong, nothing will. 

Brothers and sisters in Christ, let’s indeed pray for all the craziness going on in the world, especially for the Polish Catholic man who is literally being starved to death as we speak. Let’s pray for the conversion of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and for the conversion of Pope Francis and many of our bishops and priests. Let’s continue to be strong in faith, in love, and, especially these days, strong in hope. In the end, we were promised the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph, which will mean the triumph of Her Son Jesus Christ and with that will come peace — the only true peace there is.
