You’ve got to see the Biden-Harris-Sanders agenda

You’re familiar with President Donald Trump’s public policies, but what would the Democrats give you — or do to you — if they seize the White House this election?

Well, Joe Biden and his friends have put it in writing. In May, Biden and socialist independent Bernie Sanders assembled teams of liberals to hammer out what a Biden Administration would believe and stand for. It was an aggressive “progressive wish list,” with Sanders’ people leading the way.

Then, in early July, a 110-page “Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force Recommendations” was posted on the Biden for President website.

Joe Biden said he liked it. Yet Bernie Sanders had to like it even more, because it demonstrated he had made Biden into the most leftist Democrat nominee for U.S. president ever.

Said Biden in a July 8, 2020 statement, “I commend the Task Forces for their service and helping build a bold, transformative platform for our party and for our country. And I am deeply grateful to Senator Sanders for working together to unite our party, and deliver real, lasting change for generations to come.”

Get it? Biden and Sanders (and Kamala Harris) want to “build a bold, transformative plaform,” meaning radical and revolutionary. New York Post columnist Miranda Devine, in her piece, “Beware the Biden-Sanders radical lefty manifesto,” opined:

Joe Biden signed the death warrant for his campaign last week, even if he doesn’t know it. The joint manifesto he released with Bernie Sanders is 110 pages of radical far-left policies — from a job-killing $2 trillion climate agenda to eliminating cash bail and dismantling border protection.

It betrays the working-class voters Biden claims to represent and destroys any pretense that he is a “moderate.” As Sanders has boasted, Biden would be “the most progressive president since FDR.”

Well-meaning people might stick their fingers in their ears and vote for Biden out of nostalgia for a Democratic Party that no longer exists or out of exhaustion at the relentless anti-Trump barrage.

But with his “Unity Task Forces” document, Biden has proven only that he is an empty husk. Old Joe, who was for police and working people and law and order, is long gone. His body is there but, like his party, it has been invaded by the socialist left.

True-blue constitutional scholar/author/radio host Mark Levin explained the specifics of the Biden-Sanders ‘manifesto’ August 20 with Sean Hannity on FNC). It’s worth watching.

Here’s a transcript of the best parts of the interview:

LEVIN: All right. Let me — let me — let me — let me jump in here. You see this, Sean, you know what this is, it’s the akin to the communist manifesto. This is the Bernie Sanders-Biden manifest. They put this out.

Nobody’s discussing it. No newsroom has actually read it. It’s not discussed at the Democratic Convention. And by the way, liberty is not discussed, electricians aren’t discussed, plumbers aren’t — it’s just a big hate-fest.

But I want to go through this very briefly, because that’s all the time I have anyway. I want people to know what’s in these documents, 110 pages long, how they’re going to destroy your country.

They want to retrofit millions of American homes and buildings to prevent carbon dioxide emissions in use. What’s carbon dioxide? Well, if you’re in third grade and taking a science class, it’s what you exhale and then plants use it to create oxygen. That’s third grade stuff.

Encourage more publicly owned municipal broadband networks, expand public and private care-giving jobs in health care, child care, elder care, and they want them unionized and they want them to have benefits and imposed by the federal government.

Create a postal banking system to expand banking access for low-income families funded by us, forge a new social and economic contract — whatever the hell that is. Bail out states and cities, $15 nationwide minimum wage, massive expansion of public sector unions, elimination of right-to-work laws in states.

This is their proposal. Domestic workers Bill of Rights and the Power Act, further federal guarantees to public sector unions, guaranteed pay sick leave, guaranteed family leave, massive redistribution of wealth through taxation, federal government will provide affordable housing, federal homeowners and renters bill of rights, federal involvement and local zoning decisions and neighborhood economic and racial diversity aimed at the suburbs, retool assembly lines for zero emissions vehicles.

Bye, Detroit.

All 500,000 school buses in America transition to zero emission vehicles within years, massive expansion of public transportation, massive regulation of fossil fuels leading to brownouts and blackouts. You can see in California right now. In other words, they want to end natural gas coal and oil.

Health care, a public options plan administered by Medicare. They’re going to destroy Medicare. The age rule of Medicare will be lowered from 65 to 60, it can’t handle it.

Price controls, taxpayer funding of all abortions, gun control and confiscation treated as a public health issue by the CDC. They call health care equity, whatever that means.

Climate, national goal of achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions for all new buildings by 2030. By the way, you know what greenhouse gas emissions are? You ever drive by the road and you see a greenhouse in the winter and flowers are growing and tomatoes are growing? It’s called the atmosphere.

In an attempt to create a 100 percent clean building sector, you can see how they’re going to demolish our economy, destroy our smokestack industries, commit to eliminating carbon pollution.

Carbon dioxide is not pollution. We don’t get oxygen but for giving carbon dioxide to plants, from power plants by 2035 through new technology and neutral standards for clean energy and energy efficiency.

They want to install 500 million solar panels, 60,000 made in America wind turbines, you’ll never get any sleep. Commit that all jobs in clean energy economy will be unionized, pursue environmental and climate justice, I have no idea what that means. I’m not done.

Create a federal civilian corps of unarmed, first responders, social workers, EMTs to go to non-violent emergencies, how do you know emergencies nonviolent until you get there? Reduce the militarization of police — yeah, we have all these tanks that the police forces are using.

And the use of private prisons and detention centers, including for immigrant related offenses. Prevent desperate disciplinary treatment of children of color in school and educational settings, federal standards for training and use of force for local law enforcement, lower the standard for prosecuting law enforcement officials and expand prosecutions of law enforcement officials.

This is in the Biden Sanders manifesto: eliminate imprisonment for failing to pay fines and fees, appoint leftists to the federal courts , appoint leftists to prosecutorial positions. Man, I better not be running out of time.

Reduce pre-trial detention, abolish the federal death penalty retroactive reduced sentence — retroactive reduced sentences. All — all but in solitary confinement, abolish prison labor, ensure housing for formerly incarcerated individuals.

What else? Let me just hit immigration quickly. Extend Affordable Care Act benefits, in other words government-paid health care to Dreamers, immigrants with temporary legal status under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. In other words, government paid for by you health care for illegal aliens. Gee, that won’t cause a rush on the border.

Support legislation to treat the spouses and children of green cardholders as immediate relatives. So massively expand chain migration. Boy, they must be looking out for union workers and blue-collar workers in the battlefields — battleground states.

Waivers to the permanent bars that keep families separated support — all right, enough.

Here’s the bottom line: any one of these proposals by this crazy left-wing party — that’s what it is now, it’s been taken over by the hardcore Marxist left — any one of these proposals will adversely harm the workers in this country, the families in this country and the communities in this country.

It’s 110 pages long. For all of the talk they do covering the Democrat convention, for all the yammering about who gave a good speech, or that was really great, notice how our newsrooms don’t discuss the substance of what the Democratic Party is running on.

If they win in November 3rd, everything about your country is going to change for the worse. America will not look like America again. We tried these failed experiments throughout Europe. We’ve tried them throughout the third world. You get poverty, you get dislocation, you get massive inequality, you get a police state. That’s what they stand for. That’s it.

HANNITY: I have another minute for you. I was totally — you know, I gave you extra time.

LEVIN: Well, then let me take it up. I got another minute.

HANNITY: Of course you do.

LEVIN: First of all, hold on now, there’s 320 million Americans, about 18 million Americans are watching this. So, the vast majority are — honestly, Sean, I’m watching clips. Who the hell can sit there after dinner and watch this and keep the food in their stomach? Perfectly honest.

And look at the analysis. Oh, Obama, that (ph) speech. Oh, Michelle Obama’s speech was great! This is the nature of the media today, lacks substance.

This 110-page document has been sitting out there. We got superficial reviews of it. People need to understand. They are going to destroy blue collar jobs. They are going to destroy the assembly lines in this country.

And I’ll add this. The Biden-Harris-Sanders manifesto is messing with Creator God’s design of humans, sex, and family. On page 83, the Biden-Harris-Sanders manifesto perverts private schools and ban parental choice in education (no tax credits, no vouchers):

“Prohibit the disbursement of federal funds to organizations or providers that discriminate based on race, sex, religion, disability, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, or immigration status.”

“Oppose any and all voucher and neo-voucher programs such as Education based on race, sex, religion, disability, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, or immigration status.”

And made-up “genders,” mentioned as “LGBTQ+,” are throughout the document.

So there you have it — some of the best voter information you can get on what Joe Biden and Kamala Harris stand for. Because no one should vote in the dark.

“How do you tell a communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin.
And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.”

I admire these loving California pastors who’ve reopened

Monday, August 10, 2020, 8:55 am | Randy Thomasson
…and when they had called for the apostles and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go. So they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for His nameAnd daily in the temple, and in every house, they did not cease teaching and preaching Jesus as the Christ. Acts 5:40-42

I want to publicly commend the California pastors who have reopened for in-person congregational meetings. In addition to acknowledging virus science and history, which informs them that the COVID-19 scare and unprecedented lockdown have been grossly overblown for evil purposes, these pastors have not forgotten or “justified away” their Biblical commands to preach, assemble, and fellowship. And they haven’t forgotten or disregarded their First Amendment guarantee of “free exercise…of religion.”

Every pastor who has reopened despite warnings or threats is showing his loyalty to King Jesus. This is not a comprehensive list, but prominent pastors taking this Biblical stand include:

Rob McCoy of Godspeak Calvary Chapel in Newbury Park (Ventura County)
Jack Hibbs of Calvary Chapel in Chino Hills (San Bernardino County)
Tim Thompson of 412 Church in Murrieta (Riverside County)
John MacArthur of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley (Los Angeles County)
Greg Farrington of Destiny Christian Church in Rocklin (Placer County)
Jon Duncan of Cross Culture Christian Center in Lodi (San Joaquin County)
Jim Franklin of Cornerstone Church in Fresno

What’s more, there are 3,000 other California pastors who previously committed to reopen earlier this year, in defiance of Gavin Newsom.

Who are these pastors? Their resistance to tyranny shows they’re men who are loyal to the New Testament, who know the guarantee of the First Amendment, and who recognize the threat of dying from COVID-19 is less than the seasonal flu. So it’s Christian for them to reopen — and stay open — for church fellowship and corporate worship of the Risen Lord Jesus Christ. They are your role models for obeying God despite pain or loss.

No threat of a politician or judge will stop them. Neither will they submit to the unscientific, unconstitutional bullying of a public health officer. For the Word of God and the written U.S. Constitution are above these tyrants. Making this all the easier is few police are motivated to hassle pastors beyond mere warnings, if even that.

This current test of pastors is so important. For if a pastor avoids conflict and doesn’t study facts, isn’t this tantamount to avoiding pain (loving pleasure) and being a people-pleaser? Quite frankly, unless Biblical pastors get some hair on their chests now, in the face of verbal opposition and this mild oppression, how easy will it be for them — and their congregations — to, in the future, cave to even more government persecution, more infringement of constitutional liberties, and eventually, avoiding martyrdom by doing the will of the Antichrist?

Now is a time for testing — and training — of those who are true worshipers, who worship God in spirit and truth.

“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep. But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them. The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep.” Jesus Christ in John 10:11-13

In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith — the salvation of your souls. 1 Peter 1:6-9 

“And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write, ‘These things says the First and the Last, who was dead, and came to life: “I know your works, tribulation, and poverty (but you are rich); and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan. Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes shall not be hurt by the second death.”‘ 
Revelation (of Jesus Christ) 2:8-11

Why I won’t wear a mask

Never before have our basic freedoms been taken away from us as Americans. And I have to tell you, I’m having “mental health issues” over the prospect of wearing a face mask.

But it doesn’t really matter how I feel about it, does it? Because what matters is whether face masks are helpful or necessary, right? 

This is my study of these questions over the past 24 hours. And I’ve made my decision.

1. It’s not helpful: The last two months, I’ve learned several COVID-19 facts, including:

  • “People infected with COVID-19 who are asymptomatic (which is most people) do NOT spread COVID-19.”
  • “Emerging science shows no spread of COVID-19 in the community (shopping, restaurants, barbers, etc.).”
  • “Published science shows COVID-19 is NOT spread outdoors.”
  • “Science shows masks are ineffective to halt the spread of COVID-19, and The WHO recommends they should only be worn by healthy people if treating or living with someone with a COVID-19 infection.”
  • “There’s no science to support the magic of a six-foot barrier.” 

What’s more, I discovered that top “authorities” spoke out against general public mask use BEFORE the political correctness set in. For example, on February 29, 2020, U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams said don’t wear masks — because, unless you’re a trained expert with the best face masks and face mask protocols, face coverings don’t protect you and will actually invite infection:

“Seriously people — STOP BUYING MASKS!” Adams, an anesthesiologist who has been surgeon general since 2017, wrote on Twitter. “They are NOT effective in preventing general public from catching #Coronavirus, but if healthcare providers can’t get them to care for sick patients, it puts them and our communities at risk!” Adams wrote.

Adams also tweeted: “The best way to protect yourself and your community is with everyday preventive actions, like staying home when you are sick and washing hands with soap and water, to help slow the spread of respiratory illness.” He also said: “Avoid touching your [face] w/ unwashed hands, and wipe down surfaces with cleaning solution or wipes.”

With the mainstream media feeding the frenzy of fear, Americans have bought up millions of masks, even though they won’t be effective in prevention. Unless they are the right kind and fit perfectly, masks are ineffective — and Adams said they may even worsen the spread. “You can increase your risk of getting it by wearing a mask if you are not a health care provider,” Adams said during an interview on Fox & Friends on Monday morning.

And in the month of May, this study of decades of face mask studies appeared on the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website, which reported, “In our systematic review, we identified 10 RCTs [randomized controlled trials] that reported estimates of the effectiveness of face masks in reducing laboratory-confirmed influenza virus infections in the community from literature published during 1946–July 27, 2018. In pooled analysis, we found no significant reduction in influenza transmission with the use of face masks … Proper use of face masks is essential because improper use might increase the risk for transmission. Thus, education on the proper use and disposal of used face masks, including hand hygiene, is also needed.”

Also this year, the World Health Organization (WHO), in a moment of candor, said face masks are NOT recommended for the general public“If you do not have any repository symptoms such as fever, cough or runny nose, you do not need to wear a mask,” Dr. April Baller, a public health specialist for the WHO, says in a video on the world health body’s website posted in March. “Masks should only be used by health care workers, caretakers or by people who are sick with symptoms of fever and cough.”

Let’s put masks to the test.

According to a study of coronavirus particles (pre-COVID-19) published in the Journal of Virology in 2006, “Particle diameters ranged from 50 to 150 nm, excluding the spikes, with mean particle diameters of 82 to 94 nm.” (copied from above Figure 1). This year, it’s been found that the COVID-19 virus “is in the size range of 65-125 nm [nanometers]” — which is comparable to the flu virus’s common size of 100 nanometers.

And no doubt you’ve heard N95 surgical masks are among the best, if not the best, masks you can wear to protect yourself from COVID-19. But how good are N95 masks at filtering out COVID-19 particles? 

“The researchers pointed that normal N95 masks currently used by most health workers can filter about 85 per cent of particles smaller than 300 nm. However, the size range of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) is 65-125 nm, which means some virus particles could potentially slip through these coverings. Moreover, N95 masks are intended for single use only. But due to the shortages, many health care workers are compelled to wear the same N95 mask repeatedly.” Source

Back to the study of studies on the CDC website“Disposable medical masks (also known as surgical masks) are loose-fitting devices that were designed to be worn by medical personnel to protect accidental contamination of patient wounds, and to protect the wearer against splashes or sprays of bodily fluids (36). There is limited evidence for their effectiveness in preventing influenza virus transmission either when worn by the infected person for source control or when worn by uninfected persons to reduce exposure. Our systematic review found no significant effect of face masks on transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza.”

In other words, N95 masks won’t necessarily protect you and there’s hardly any reliable evidence that they will. N95 masks require individual fitting, training on proper use, and daily replacement. Cloth masks are even lower efficacy. No wonder the early voices, including the U.S. Surgeon General, the CDC, and even the WHO, all opposed general public use of face masks. Contrary to what you’re hearing now, face masks are not the solution.

Bottom line, wearing a mask doesn’t protect you against COVID-19 infection, and might even increase virus transmission. And even the best masks do better if you can acquire them, are properly trained, and use a new one every day. As for my own health, I know that wearing a mask depletes my oxygen intake, makes me inhale toxins, and inhibits my immune system from improving. Therefore, wearing a mask doesn’t help me or others.

2. It’s not required

California’s June 18, 2020 so-called “statewide mask order” is nothing of the sort. It’s not a law that’s been passed by the California State Legislature and signed by the governor. Nor is it an executive order of the governor clearly justified under the Emergency Services Act.

No, this is merely a deceptive recommendation that Californians can take or leave. Because the “guidance” issued by the California Department of Public Health is no law, no requirement, and no mandate. Peggy Hall of Orange County, California explains it well.

Already several California county sheriffs have announced they won’t enforce anything regarding face masks: Sheriffs of Sacramento County and Placer County, Yuba County, Calaveras County, Stanislaus County, Tulare County, Orange County, and Riverside County. And you can expect the anti-lockdown sheriffs of Merced and Sonoma counties to agree. In addition, we’re hearing from several city police chiefs, who’ve announced they won’t cite or arrest business owners for not requiring masks, or individuals for not wearing masks.

Now, it’s the right of individual businesses whether to require face masks on their own property. But consider using one of SaveCalifornia.com’s mask exemption forms: 

mental health condition | medical condition | medical condition obstruct breathing | disability

Note that the “mental health condition” exemption is very broad, and could include anxiety, depression, panic, sudden rage, etc. The “obstruct breathing” exemption is also very broad, for whose breathing is not obstructed by a face mask? Confidently show your chosen form to a manager to explain you are exempt from any face mask requirement. Be prepared to argue, using the California Department of Public Health’s list of exemptions. If they let you in, you win; if not, tell them they’re violating your rights, and shop elsewhere.

3. Forced masks aren’t the mark of free Americans

As you’ve witnessed this tumultuous year, the New Communism is trying hard to take over the United States of America. And the Democrat politicians represent this tyrannical spirit, coupled with their own lust for power and attention.

They already robbed you of your God-given and constitutional rights to work, earn, own, fellowship, socialize, play, and purchase. And they looked the other way as Antifa and Black Lives Matter rioters destroyed property and targeted equal justice under the law.

Now these Democrat politicians want to force us all to wear face masks. They claim it’s because of a spike in COVID-19 cases, while failing to remind us that 97-99% of infected persons completely recover, or that hospitalization spikes in California counties are from infected Mexicans being helicoptered in, skewing the data. And they deserve your trust?

Our elected officials have lied to and seriously hurt us. First, they overly-scared us with false projections about COVID-19. Then they imposed an unnecessary, destructive lockdown, destroying our basic rights. And now they’re enjoying seeing masks on people’s faces, without scientific justification. Who are your domestic enemies, mentioned in these Democrat elected officials’ oaths of office? The very same Democrats doing this to you.

As an American, I know my constitutional rights. As a human being, I know my God-given rights. As a growing disciple of Jesus Christ, I know my life’s purpose includes supporting good and opposing evil. The New Testament informs me that I’m called to be free from the bondage of sin and the father of lies, and to live in love for God and people. I’m neither an animal nor a number, and I refuse to see others or let myself be treated as such. This is why, for the sake of love and liberty, I refuse to be masked.

“I am not afraid of Covid — I am afraid of what Covid’s creating. I am afraid of the ugliness, the distance, the anti-social, the communism. All of this — that’s what scares me. I’ve seen so many patients recover from this virus just fine. Some of these people don’t even need hospitalization. They really could have just gone home.”
