The 'covert tactics' used to scare Britons

UK - A document presented to SAGE called for an increase in the 'perceived threat' of Covid using 'hard-hitting emotional messages', reports claim today. Psychologists have accused Downing Street of using 'covert psychological strategies' to emphasise the threat from Covid-19 without contextualising the risks, the Telegraph reported. It was said this created 'a state of heightened anxiety', adding many people became 'too frightened to attend hospital'. Experts fear Britons have been the subject of an experiment in the use of tactics which operate 'below their level of awareness,' it was said.

This woke world has gone too far

USA - I am a trans woman – but I think this woke world has gone too far. Trans people have lost the plot. Every day, an increasing amount of absurdity floods in as they do more harm than good. They scream for acceptance without realizing that the ones damaging their image aren't bigots, but themselves. From anger directed at celebrities for the rational belief that parents shouldn't decide whether their three-year-old is trans, to a culture of outrage that freaks out at the most minor of offenses, transgender activists have become detrimental to my, and others', very existence.

Parents encouraging kids to become transgender are guilty of ‘child abuse’

USA - ‘It’s an assembly line’: De-transitioned man says parents encouraging kids to become transgender are guilty of ‘child abuse’. A man who lived for eight years as a trans woman before de-transitioning has called out the “child abuse” from adults who encourage transgenderism in kids, saying it’s an “abhorrent” interference in their natural development. Born male, Walt Heyer began transitioning to female at 42 years-old. He lived that way for eight years before realizing he had been a victim of childhood abuse and began the process of returning to his birth-assigned gender.

TV’s anti-meat indoctrination of children by vegans and vegetarians

UK - BBC TV show Blue Peter is incentivising youngsters to reduce their meat intake to fight climate change. Is it really the role of a television programme to tell impressionable kids what to eat? Finally, there has been a bit of a backlash to the anti-meat crusade promoted by the BBC children’s programme Blue Peter. Numerous farmers and parents have reacted after the show urged its young viewers to go vegetarian as part of its climate change challenge. Apparently, kids can now work towards a Blue Peter ‘green badge’ by choosing a vegetarian option for a meal. The show’s website suggests that embracing this approach is a marker of “true climate hero behaviour.” One farmer, Andrew Ward MBE, complained, “Bloody diabolical. The BBC do not have any morals. Targeting children to push the anti-meat agenda is a new low.”

 
The Vegan Crusade

UK - A UK activist wants to make veganism protected like a religion, unleashing the zealots. British ‘ethical vegan’ Jordi Casamitjana hopes to have his whole movement recognized by an employment tribunal as a protected belief, similar to a religious faith – which could give vegan zealots free rein in the workplace. Casamitjana says he was fired from his job because of his beliefs – he disclosed to other employees at the League Against Cruel Sports that it invested its pension funds in firms involved in animal testing. He couldn’t leave well enough alone because he is an ‘ethical vegan’ – someone who doesn’t just avoid animal products, but also holds veganism as a “philosophy and a belief system”, and, apparently, feels the need to spread it around. During hearings on Thursday and Friday, Casamitjana hopes to convince an Employment Tribunal that his beliefs should enjoy the same status as long-established religions such as Christianity, Judaism or Islam. Beyond merely vindicating the man in his job dispute, the process could end up opening the door to endowing veganism with the authority of the sacred.

 
Unashamedly intolerant

UK - You’ve probably heard of transphobia or xenophobia or islamophobia. Well, welcome to the latest invented fashionable phobia, vegaphobia! Vegaphobia refers to meat-eating purveyors of hate, who dislike and fear vegans. Veganism loves to present itself as a brave progressive doctrine fighting off hordes of uneducated angry carnivores. In reality, it is the ideology of veganism which promotes a religion of hate. Veganism is unashamedly intolerant. Anti-meat campaigners are not prepared to allow others to decide for themselves what they should eat. That is why activists upholding the ideology of veganism feel entitled to invade supermarkets and prevent people from gaining access to the meat counter. They are zealously intolerant towards people who choose to adopt a diet that is at variance with their ideology. Veganism has become an unpleasant and sanctimonious ideology that directs its energies towards imposing its lifestyle on society.

 
Iran Ignores US Sanctions

IRAN - Iran knows they can do what they want with Obama/Biden in charge again. Millions of crude oil barrels are on their way to Syria from Iran, violating US sanctions. According to a civilian naval intelligence firm, there are four vessels with more than 3 million barrels combined on their way to the Baniyas oil refinery, near the Mediterranean coast. Syria has been struggling with an oil shortage, relying primarily on Iranian help. However, with the burdening sanctions on the two countries, the shortage has turned into a crisis, causing power outages and rationing petrol. With Obama/Biden back in charge, Iran will do what it wants. Now with the help of the European Union, the US and Iran will hold indirect talks to get the Iran deal back on the table. It’s unknown how much Obama/Biden will give to Iran this time around. In 2016 this was one of the main reasons Americans voted for President Trump. Giving billions to Iran was giving billions to our enemy.

 
Real men like Prince Philip are rare as hen's teeth these days…

UK - Real men like Prince Philip are rare as hen's teeth these days... because the modern world despises them. Now that he has gone, he leaves a gaping hole in both [the Queen's] heart and the heart of the nation (which, after all, are the same thing). Bigger and more profound, perhaps, than many of us might have expected. Because his passing represents much more than the end of a single life; it also represents the end of an era. Of a certain set of values and personal qualities that seem to have less and less place in the modern world but without which, we all instinctively know, life is an infinitely more superficial and barren experience.

WEF Warns Of Cyber Attack on The Global Financial System

USA - A report published last year by the WEF-Carnegie Cyber Policy Initiative calls for the merging of Wall Street banks, their regulators and intelligence agencies as necessary to confront an allegedly imminent cyber attack that will collapse the existing financial system. In November 2020, the World Economic Forum (WEF) and Carnegie Endowment for International Peace co-produced a report that warned that the global financial system was increasingly vulnerable to cyber attacks. Advisors to the group that produced the report included representatives from the Federal Reserve, the Bank of England, the International Monetary Fund, Wall Street giants like JP Morgan Chase and Silicon Valley behemoths like Amazon.

Prince William Calls for a ‘Reset’

UK - Prince William has confirmed that he’s at least as dodgy a kingly prospect as his father the Prince of Wales by calling for a ‘Reset.’ William, who is second in line to the British throne, slipped the codeword into a video broadcast for the environmental charity Conservation International. He said: ‘All of us, across all sectors of society, and in every corner of the globe must come together to fundamentally reset our relationship with nature and our trajectory as a species.’

Grim view of global future offered in intelligence report

USA - US intelligence officials are painting a dark picture of the world’s future, writing in a report released Thursday that the coronavirus pandemic has deepened economic inequality, strained government resources and fanned nationalist sentiments. Those assessments are included in a Global Trends report by the government’s National Intelligence Council, a document produced every four years. This year’s report is designed to help policymakers and citizens anticipate the economic, environmental, technological and demographic forces likely to shape the world through the next 20 years. The document focuses heavily on the impact of the pandemic, calling it the “most significant, singular global disruption since World War II, with health, economic, political, and security implications that will ripple for years to come.” The document finds cause for concern in virtually all aspects of life.

 
Rising Tensions in South China Sea

CHINA - Although US shores are thousands of miles from the South China Sea, its spy planes have regularly combed the waters in recent years. It has also dispatched thousands of assault forces to conduct drills in the waterway, claiming itself to be the enforcer of the international rules-based order. A second US aircraft carrier has entered the South China Sea amid rising tensions between the US and China. Several other warships have sailed perilously close to Chinese waters, including a destroyer on Wednesday that traversed the Taiwan Strait.

US Navy to challenge New Delhi's ‘excessive maritime claims’

USA - The US Navy has said it deliberately refrained from asking India’s consent for a ‘freedom of navigation’ patrol near its Lakshadweep archipelago this week because New Delhi’s demands to do so contravene international law. An Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer, the USS John Paul Jones, “asserted navigational rights and freedoms approximately 130 nautical miles (240 km) west of the Lakshadweep Islands, inside India's exclusive economic zone [EEZ], without requesting India's prior consent, consistent with international law,” the US 7th Fleet announced in a statement on Wednesday. Its mission in the Arabian Sea “upheld the rights, freedoms, and lawful uses of the sea recognized in international law by challenging India's excessive maritime claims,” the statement added. The US Navy said it was well aware that New Delhi “requires prior consent for military exercises or maneuvers in its EEZ and continental shelf,” but insisted those claims have no legal basis.

 
“Just what is an APOSTLE?”
Just what is an Apostle?

Today we find the Church of God in a “wilderness of religious confusion!”

The confusion is not merely around the Church – within the religions of the world outside – but WITHIN the very heart of The True Church itself!
