After Pastor Faces Jail For Disobeying Virginia Order – His Church Sues The Governor, Then Barr’s DOJ Sides With Them – Washington News

washingtonews.today

Mary Deanna Janee

Remember when Attorney General William Barr said he would protect our Constitutional rights?

Last week, he said his Department of Justice would be on the lookout for overly strict lockdown measures.

Well, it didn’t take long for Barr’s team to spot one glaring example — they found it in the state of Virginia.

A pastor dared to hold a church service for 16 people on Palm Sunday. And as a result, he was facing a steep fine and possibly even jail time.

However, it seemed like a ridiculous arrest: the church could hold 293 people, and only 16 – properly spaced out – were in attendance.

And the DOJ agrees that it WAS ridiculous.

They’re stepping in to help the church in their battle against Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (via Fox News):

The Justice Department is siding with a Virginia church suing Gov. Ralph Northam after police threatened a pastor with jail time or a $2,500 fine for violating the state’s coronavirus lockdown restrictions by holding a 16-person church service on Palm Sunday.

GOOD!

When police served a summons to Lighthouse Fellowship Church pastor Kevin Wilson, that was a step too far in the eyes of many.

The church quickly leveled a lawsuit against Northam and the state of Virginia. And rightfully so, I say.

Mat Staver, chairman and founder of Liberty Counsel, who is representing the pastor, added:

As important as it is that we stay safe during these challenging times, it is also important for states to remember that we do not abandon all of our freedoms in times of emergency.

Unlawful discrimination against people who exercise their right to religion violates the First Amendment, whether we are in a pandemic or not.

That’s exactly right.

And the good news is, our Department of  Justice is lending their significant influence and power to this battle.

So it looks like DO have allies in Washington, and Barr is true to his word!

They may find many other examples of draconian lockdown orders in the country. Maybe they should take a gander at Michigan, for instance…

But no matter what happens, it’s nice to know that Pastor Wilson and the faithful Virginia residents have a strong ally!

SHARE if you think some lockdown orders have become WAY too strict!

Petition to Register “Radical Predators” in a Public Database!

change.org

Hesitant Heroes started this petition to Representative Barbara Lee and 17 others 3-4 minutes

This petition aims to help pass a bill that would create a public registry for people who have been found guilty of committing a felony racial hate crime, similar to what already exists for those convicted of sex crimes.

First and foremost, we would like to convey our deepest condolences to the families of all those who have lost their lives due to the unjust, systematically biased America in which we find ourselves; in which we have always found ourselves. George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Rayshard Brooks, Eric Garner, Sandra Bland, Laquan McDonald, Tamir Rice, Alton Sterling, Freddie Gray, Rekia Boyd, Walter Scott and so many others. As we have witnessed the irreparable harm that has already been done, we continue to see African Americans subjected to these injustices daily. And we continue to see the perpetrators of these injustices not be held accountable. This must change.

Recently, there has been a plethora of videos to surface that shows racist people flaunting, abusing and misusing 911 as their own personal tool to fulfill their racist intentions. This crime is not only racist, it is reckless, abhorrent and could lead to death. Since the murder of Emmett Till, it has been a constant plague in our society.

Lawmakers in the city of New York have recently passed legislation that will make false race-based 911 reports a hate crime, according to Andrew Cuomo’s “Say Their Name” Reform Agenda. We vehemently support this bill, but want to push it further. We demand that those convicted be entered into a public database as Racial Predators. Eventually we hope to include all hate crimes (including, but not limited to, hate crimes based on sexual orientation/identification, creed or sex.) There is no legal accountability that is sufficient enough for the magnitude of this crime; nothing that would deter the misuse of our justice system or the continuation of these false accusations.

This petition calls to not only hold civilians accountable for race-based actions, but also for the accountability of Law Enforcement. In a Guardian article, Paul Butler states: “Cops routinely hurt and humiliate black people because that is what they are paid to do. Virtually every objective investigation of a US law enforcement agency finds that the police, as policy, treat African Americans with contempt.” These officers will search for every reason that might lead to an arrest and abusers have used this to their advantage.

The transparency of police officer’s prior disciplinary records, as well as the elimination of “Qualified Immunity” are essential in this venture. Truly reforming our broken system requires getting to the foundation of how it works. A farmer knows that nothing will grow an overgrown field by merely sprinkling seeds on top of the weeds. They need to clear the field and till the soil in order for things to grow. Let’s do what we need to do to plant the seeds that will feed and sustain our society.

We are demanding through this petition that anyone, including police officers who are convicted in this crime or any other racist hate crimes, MUST be registered as a racial predator in a public database so that we all know who they are.

Enough is enough.

Black Lives Matter activist injects race into Kellogg’s cereal packaging

Elves are fictional characters!!

washingtonexaminer.com

By Andrew Mark Miller 2-3 minutes

A Black Lives Matter activist suggested the packaging of American food manufacturing company Kellogg’s was racist, prompting a response from the company.

Black Lives Matter activist and former U.K. member of Parliament Fiona Onasanya criticized Kellogg’s earlier this week, asking why “three white boys” serve as the mascots of one the company’s signature cereals, Rice Krispies, and a monkey is displayed on boxes of Coco Pops in the United Kingdom, according to the Federalist.

“@KelloggsUK, as you are yet to reply to my email – Coco Pops and Rice Krispies have the same compòsition (except for the fact CP’s are brown and chocolate flavoured)… so I was wondering why Rice Krispies have three white boys representing the brand and Coco Pops have a monkey?” Onasanya, who was expelled from the U.K. Labour Party after a three-month prison stint for lying to police in 2018, tweeted earlier this week.

Onasanya also took a shot at the founder of Kellogg’s, saying, “Well, given John Harvey Kellogg co-founded the Race Betterment Foundation (the Foundation’s main purpose was to study the cause of and cure for “race degeneracy”), it would be remiss of me not to ask…”

Kellogg’s responded in a statement, arguing that it supports the black community.

“We do not tolerate discrimination and believe that people of all races, genders, backgrounds, sexual orientation, religions, capabilities and beliefs should be treated with the utmost dignity and respect,” the company said, adding that the Coco Pops monkey is also the same character representing the white chocolate cereal. “The monkey mascot that appears on both white and milk chocolate Coco Pops, was created in the 1980s to highlight the playful personality of the brand.”

The accusation against Kellogg’s comes as racial tensions across the globe were heightened following the death of George Floyd, a black man killed while in police custody on May 25.

Since Floyd’s death, household brands such as Aunt Jemima syrup and Uncle Ben’s rice have been forced to reexamine their packaging amid accusations of racism.

Pandemic Drones Being Produced To Surveil Our Health – PrepForThat

Pandemic Drones Being Produced To Surveil Our Health

pandemicsPrepper News

Jim Satney April 13, 2020

A drone developer claims to be working on new technology that uses sensors to monitor people’s heart rates and temperatures. Such technology has privacy advocates feeling rather unsettled.

Canadian drone company Draganfly says it’s working with the Australian Department of Defense and the University of South Australia to develop pandemic drones.

The drones leverage a computer vision system that is able to detect respiratory rates of people below its flight path. If these pandemic drones work as advertised, they’ll capture human sneezes and coughs.

Business Insider obtained demonstration images that show how these pandemic drones could monitor large events or nursing homes. Here’s a working example of how the pandemic drone functions. You’ll see in the demonstration below, as a man coughs, the drone is able to display it.


JOIN REOPEN AMERICA GROUP NOW Help Americans get back to work and get our liberty restored!


pandemic drone coughing detection

A human operates the drone as it soars above people. The information is cast back to the control device whereas the coughing or ill human’s location is quickly detected. The group claims to have a $1.5 million budget.

“We had imagined the technology being used in a future relief expedition to some far-away place. Now, shockingly, we see a need for its use in our everyday lives immediately” Dr. Javaan Chahl, defense science and technology chair at the University of South Australia said.

The company is working hard to secure a supply chain and begin distributing pandemic drones worldwide.

Of course, it is difficult to ignore the repercussions on privacy that such technology might have. A world whereas drones monitor our daily movements from above is as unsettling as it gets.

Petition · Let’s Stop the Robocall Insanity! · Change.org

Richard Codey started this petition to Ajit.Pai@fcc.gov and 8 others

Let’s stop the minute-to-minute annoyance of unsolicited calls constantly coming through to our mobile phones.

Calls when we are in a meeting, calls when we are with our children, calls when we are having dinner, calls when we are going to bed – when does it end?

Ten a day, then 15, then 20 – it just doesn’t stop.

Join me and sign the petition to pressure the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to require that all phone carriers implement into their networks, free of charge, robocall blocking technology to prevent these calls from ever getting to your mobile phone.

We need the FCC to make the necessary regulatory changes on their end and then to start this mandate of the phone carriers.

Many of the hundreds of millions of calls are originating overseas. Companies and scammers are using computer technology to dial literally millions of numbers a day. With the push of a button millions of calls go out through the network at one time.

Furthermore, they are using “spoofing” technology to have those calls come through to our phones as a local call by showing a local area code to try and fool people into picking up.

It is time for the FCC to require phone carriers to develop and implement technology that can detect when a flood of calls are coming through the networks and prevent those calls from ever making it to your mobile phone.

Please sign the petition here, send this along to your friends and family and make our voices heard! The more that sign, the more the FCC will take notice.

In addition to this petition, please reach out to your congressional representative and United States Senator and let them know you have had enough and that you want them to lend their voice by letting the FCC know the robocall insanity must stop!

You can find your Congressional representative’s contact information here: https://www.house.gov/representatives/find/

You can find your United States Senator’s contact information here: https://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm

To file complaints and contact the FCC you can do so here: https://www.fcc.gov/consumers/guides/stop-unwanted-calls-texts-and-faxes

Lets do our part to stop the insane robocalls now!

Please let me know your personal story with these insane Robocalls in the comment section. Thank You

Petition · National Boy Scouts of America: Demand the Boy Scouts of America reinstate the rank of Eagle Scout to Logan Blythe · Change.org

Fifteen- year- old Logan Blytne has Down Syndrome and Autism. He began as a Cub Scout when he was eight and progressed through the Boy Scouts earning sanctioned alternative badges. When the time came to earn his Eagle Scout rank, is Utah Chapter approved his Eagle Scout project. Then it happened. The National Boy Scouts of America decided not only to not approve his Eagle Scout project, but to rescind his alternative Badges and demote him to Cub Scout. This is outrageous. this petition demands of the Boy Scouts of America reinstate his Badges and approve his Eagle Scout project.

New Bill Would Let Cops Enter Your Home Without a Warrant and Kill Your Dog

Joshua Krause
Activist Post http://www.activistpost.com/2015/01/new-bill-would-let-cops-enter-your-home.htmlIn light of recent events, it’s become apparent that the public’s opinion of law enforcement is rapidly falling apart. Technology is partly to blame for giving the average citizen the ability to film police encounters at a moment’s notice, and post these videos on the Internet for the world to see. There’s always been bad cops, but now their antics are being exposed more than ever.

Of course, that’s not even the half of it. The police wouldn’t get any bad exposure if they weren’t caught doing terrible things in the first place. A cursory look through a Facebook group like Copblock will give you page after page of cops being stupid, trigger happy, petty, and negligent (and those are just the links gathered from the last 24…

Not Satire: New NRA Video Endorses Gun Permits For Blind People

The Fifth Column

The Daily Banter – Opinion

Several weeks ago, we covered one of several bizarre new videos released by the National Rifle Association in which a “commentator” pitches one or more ridiculous ideas for how to expand gun rights in the United States. In that video, a hipster commentator, Billy Johnson, made a case for government subsidies for guns, including free ammunition, justifying his plea by suggesting that the government subsidizes healthcare, so why not? Johnson went on to suggest that a right to an education is the same as the right to a firearm, clearly forgetting that guns are intended to hurt or kill living beings, while knowledge is generally intended to help living beings.

At the time, it was difficult to imagine a more absurd video from the group that gave us Wayne LaPierre and pearls of wisdom like “guns make people’s lives better.” But wow, the NRA just…
