You can find the entire report right here.

Below are specific quotes from the report.

The rise of white Christian nationalism is a national security threat. We recommend you: encourage the Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice to dedicate resources to the deradicalization programs at hate groups, including, but not limited to, white nationalists; increase monitoring of such groups, including the online environment and take action to address increased hate crimes towards minority faith communities; and shift rhetoric to label violent white nationalist extremist as terrorist

We believe that this is a moment not only to enact policies to advance constitutional secularism but position the democratic party to take back the mantle of religious freedom and pluralism from the republican party.

We urge you not to underestimate the institutional strength of what we refer to (interchangeably) in this document as the Christian nationalist movement or the religious right. This movement is extraordinarily well funded and well organized in the manifestation of its extreme Insectarium agenda is a constant display under the Trump-Pence administration. Its political ideology is anti-democratic and anti-scientific. It provides constant cover for white supremacy.

Its agenda rests on a pinched interpretation of biblical principles preached by Christian nationalist leader ship and thought leaders. With their political agenda sanctioned by a higher power, their base of support is disciplined, motivated, and deeply committed to a vision that does not align with our basic constitutional values and democratic principles.

We ask that you counter this movement narrative by actively working to dismantle its grip on our government and counter it’s in accurate and revisionist messaging around our nation’s founding.

Policy decisions that should be guided by science and evidence, on matters ranging from climate change to comprehensive sex education to federal funding for stem cell research, I’ve been scooter blocked entirely by powerful religious interest groups and further undermined at every turn by the Trump administration.

The first three areas where we believe President Trump has violated basic constitutional principles and elevated religious privilege over the Bill of Rights and the common good. The fourth area of focus is protecting the rights and dignity of nontheists.

According to Gallup the most mistrusted religious minorities in the United States are atheists and Muslims.

Utilize every mechanism at the administrations disposal to ensure that the Department of Education does not funnel taxpayer dollars to private schools.

Reverse all executive orders, rules, memoranda, and other actions that exempt faith based organizations contracting with the federal government from non-discrimination requirements that apply to secular organizations.

We are at your administration to disincentive eyes state funding for programs that are not evidence-based in which can cause harm by spreading misinformation, such as crisis pregnancy centers and abstinence only education programs.

Work with Congress to incentivize states to increase their vaccination rates by repealing all non-medical exemptions to mandatory vaccination for children in schools and day care centers.

Fully and robustly fund comprehensive, medically accurate sex education.

Donald Trump has empowered the religious right in ways no other administration has before, making significant advances in enacting their Christian nationalist agenda.

Oppose religious displays on government property and recognize this issue’s importance as a matter of basic constitutional respect.

Issue guidance that clarifies the duty and obligation of government officials to separate their personal religious beliefs from their work.

Crackdown on nonprofits operating as businesses, including mega churches.

Update the current guidelines to clarify the constitutional boundaries of religious expression in public schools.

Disentangle the conflation of faith and patriotism. In public statements, avoid phrases like “God and country.”

With the rise of Christian nationalism, there is an urgent need to reframe public discourse surrounding patriotism.

When listing faiths in public remarks or talking about religious pluralism, always include non-religious people.

The current motto, “In God We trust,” is a relic of McCarthyism in the anti-atheist hysteria of the 1950s, and it has been invoked by Christian nationalists to reinforce their historically revisionist narrative of our nations founding.

We urge you to avoid invoking the phrase “Judeo-Christian values,” as it has been Weaponized by the religious right to advancing agenda that has the veneer of inclusivity but actually undermines religious freedom and tolerance and does not represent tens of millions of Americans implicitly excluded from its formulation.

Send Boatloads, Not Plane Loads, of Migrants to Eastern Seaboard Sanctuary Cities

Ultra-wealthy liberal communities don’t want to handle an ultra-thin fraction of border-crossing illegal immigrants

Published

on

The Über-Liberals of Martha’s Vineyard got a tiny, tiny taste of what Texas and Arizona endure every hour, of every day, with no end in sight. What a wonderful glimpse for all the world to see: how an ultra-wealthy, sparsely populated island, in a virtual sanctuary state, handled a thin fraction of border-crossing illegal immigrants, yearning to be free! They sent them away in less than a day.

All those yard signs, all that virtue-signaling, and it all added up to what? Gross hypocrisy. Then the blame game started. DeSantis and Abbott… they are simply evil men, using the poor as political pawns. How do we know? The liberal press is blasting out this message via bullhorns.

As any thinking person knows, the blame lies in Washington, DC thanks to the lax administration of Joe Biden, his lackey Kamala Harris, and the super-incompetent Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas.

Making the Dollars Go Further

Apparently Governor DeSantis had to pay handsomely to fly the 50 “exploited souls” to Martha’s Vineyard. However, here is a solution for sending even more, at a far lower cost per person. Buy or rent one of the many cruise ship for sale from the cruise companies which have been hit hard over last 30 months and that now seek to reduce some of their inventory.

Personally, having cruised 39 times, and I can tell you that the these big ships can comfortably accommodate between 2500 passengers. The mega-ships can accommodate 4500. For a short trip up the Atlantic coast, doubling and tripling the number of family members in each room would sum to nearly 10,000 on one voyage. From Texas, navigating the Gulf of Mexico, or directly from Florida, heading up the Atlantic Ocean, a ship could reach Massachusetts within three days.

During the time of the voyage, the facilities on board are excellent. There are health clubs, saunas, steam rooms, a running track, and even a swimming pool or two. These guests of Joe Biden, transported by governors, would actually enjoy themselves on the way up, and then, by golly, be rewarded via the largesse that represents the good people of Massachusetts.

Fulfilling Sanctuary Dreams

Governor DeSantis, as well as Governor Abbott, employing cruise ships could then supply all the sanctuary cities along the Atlantic Seaboard with exactly what they’ve been begging for. After all these years, hey, why not make a wonderful delivery to Baltimore, and then Rehoboth Beach, Delaware where the Bidens frequent?

And how about 1,000s of migrants delivered to Atlantic City, New Jersey, and the Hamptons in Long Island? Don’t forget Bridgeport and New Haven, Connecticut before proceeding to Newport, Rhode Island, Nantucket, and Boston. For good measure make some deliveries to the resort towns in Maine.

What a marvel to behold, as these self-described caring destinations welcome thousands and thousands of migrants, all at once, and artfully absorb them. Sure, there will be some adjustments; such locales will have to spend big bucks for food, shelter, and clothing for these new arrivals… and then find them longer term homes and jobs. So what if local schools are not equipped with foreign language teachers and curricula so that the new children can get up to snuff? Isn’t that what sanctuary cities are all about?

Just Checking In

Let’s revisit all of these places one year later and see exactly how these welcome guests have feared. How about crime? Have they had run-ins with the law? What about the schools? How about public health? Let’s take a very accurate snapshot of what happens on the day they arrived, versus one year later, two years later, and three years later.

Having people dumped into your community, or your home for that matter, despite liberal virtue-signaling, represents a huge change in how you live, and how they live. It’s humanitarian to help a migrant in need. Thousands of migrants, or tens of thousands of them, all at the same time, dropped into a community is not a humanitarian gesture, it is an attack on your way of life.

As Henry Kissinger famously advised then German chancellor Angela Merkel, helping one person in dire need to come to Germany is a humanitarian gesture. Having great masses come to Germany threatens your culture.

Interview with My Son Hunter Producer Phelim McAleer

My Son Hunter

Phelim McAleer is one of the most courageous men alive today. He has produced many movies that depict true stories that the mainstream media tries to cover up, like Gosnell, the story of America’s most prolific serial killer, Abortionist Kermit Gosnell. His latest movie, My Son Hunter, is a viral sensation that tells the story of Hunter Biden’s laptop and the corruption of him leveraging his father’s office to do big deals with Ukrainian and Chinese oligarchs.  This is a powerful interview with a brave men, telling a story ripped from the conservative media headlines and bringing it to a man audience.

The late Andrew Breitbart said that politics is downstream from culture, and he was right. This movie is part of the Right’s effort to recapture the culture from the Left.
