Asian leader warns Putin warrant could spark nuclear war | 20 March 2023 | The issuance of an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin by the International Criminal Court (ICC) could lead to nuclear war, as well as creating other implications globally, Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen has warned.

Governor Hochul Files Appeal in Quarantine Camp Lawsuit | 14 March 2023 | Late in the day on Monday, March 13, 2023, just hours before the deadline, New York Attorney General, Letitia James, filed an appeal to try to overturn our successful lawsuit that struck down Governor Kathy Hochul’s (D) unconstitutional “Isolation and Quarantine Procedures” regulation. The case, Borrello v. Hochul, which we won last July, was brought against the Governor and her Department of Health, on behalf of a group of NYS Legislators, Senator George Borrello, Assemblyman Chris Tague, Assemblyman (now Congressman) Mike Lawler, together with our citizens’ group, Uniting NYS… For anyone unfamiliar with this regulation, it allowed the Department of Health to pick and choose which New Yorkers they could lock up or lock down, with no proof that you were ever even exposed to, let alone actually sick with, a communicable disease. They could have locked you down in your home, or they could have removed you from your home and forced you to quarantine in a facility of their choosing. There was no time restriction, so you could have been quarantined for however long they required — days, weeks, months. There was no age restriction, so they could have done this to you, to your child, to your grandchild, etc. In the true fashion of a totalitarian regime, they could have told you what you could and could not do while in quarantine. They literally could have controlled your every move.

Craigslist Craig Funded the Censorship-Industrial Complex to Silence Dissent Online | 21 March 2023 | The billionaire founder of Craigslist, Craig Newmark, is using his [resources] to further shape journalism into partisan activism to help Democrats win elections. He is the nation’s leading funder of the “mis”- and “disinformation” industries and is now the largest private stakeholder in America’s legacy journalism schools. The most recent Twitter Files released by Matt Taibbi add a deeply disturbing new layer to the story. They show Newmark is at the very heart of a web of government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and corporate media institutions operating in concert to censor political opponents on social media. Newmark is financing the largest coordinated assault on American free speech in living memory. On March 9, journalist Matt Taibbi outlined how pre-Elon Musk Twitter acted as “a partner to government,” working in concert with the Department of Homeland Security, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Department of Health and Human Services, Treasury, the National Security Agency, and local police. An elaborate system for reporting hundreds of thousands of accounts was set up, and Twitter obliged by deleting thousands of accounts on demand.
Bill Pending in Israel Would Criminalize Talking About Jesus – in Person, Online, Print and by Mail: Two Years Prison | 20 March 2023 | Christian Leaders are urging Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to stop a bill pending in the Israeli Knesset (Parliament) that would make it criminal to tell people about Jesus, inside Israel. Just days before Good Friday, Palm Sunday, and Easter, the bill would punish believers for sharing the Gospel of Jesus. The bill was introduced by two ultra-Orthodox members of Netanyahu’s Coalition — United Torah Judaism party members Moshe Gafni and Yacov Asher. The bill would make it ILLEGAL to share, in personal conversation, or produce content online, in print, or by mail, talking about Jesus or His Gospel… The punishment for doing so would be “one year imprisonment.” If the conversation is with minor – someone under the age of 18 – the punishment would be “two years imprisonment.” This bill would apply to people having spiritual conversations with Israelis of any religion. However, in their official explanation of the bill, the two Israeli legislators specifically emphasized the warning to stop Christians, in particular.

Dr. Aaron Edwards, who taught theology at Cliff College in Derbyshire, England, was dismissed from the school after being accused of “bringing the college into disrepute” on social media last month. “Homosexuality is invading the church,” Edwards tweeted on Feb. 19. “Evangelicals no longer see the severity of this [because] they’re busy apologizing for their apparently barbaric homophobia, whether or not it’s true. “This *is* a ‘Gospel issue,’ by the way. If sin is no longer sin, we no longer need a Savior,” Edwards added… Edwards was suspended from the school pending an investigation and the college revealed during a disciplinary hearing on March 8 that it was considering referring him to Prevent, which polices allegations of terrorism in the U.K.

Black DEI director: I was called white supremacist for questioning woke policies | 18 March 2023 | Since becoming the faculty director for the Office of Equity, Social Justice, and Education at De Anza College in August of 2021, Dr. Tabia Lee said, she endured “non-stop hostility” on campus. Now, she claims, she’s out of a job after colleagues retaliated against her for questioning certain diversity, equity, and inclusion policies at the Cupertino, California, school. But her vision of diversity and inclusion, it seems, was the wrong one. “I’m trying to create safe spaces for everyone,” Lee said. “But some people wanted me to create spaces that were just safe for them, and that’s not my mission as an educator. That’s not what I’m here to do.” …Citing the recommendation of the National Association of Black Journalists, she suggested all racial groups be capitalized. “For that, I was accused of being a white supremacist,” she said.
