Judging by the following clip, faith may have won…
No doubt this is will be a historic Easter Sunday unlike any other, with American Christians by and large watching services from home, whether online or on television, or also in some cases in their cars in church parking lots. Lockdowns across the nation have already triggered fierce 1st Amendment debates, to which states have in some cases responded very differently.
One Florida pastor late last month wound up in handcuffs after defying local authorities’ orders to not hold a live church service, but in other states like Texas, governors have declared church an ‘essential service’ and reaffirmed that Bill of Rights ‘freedom of religion’ protections means police can’t go in and shut services down.
But in Mississippi, not even ‘drive-in’ church is being allowed, in what will likely be seen by most American Christians as an example of severe legal overreach and breach of rights against a community clearly enacting health measures recommended by the CDC of social distancing. “Your rights are suspended,” one police officer days ago told a local pastor who planned to hold modified drive-up services (see 1:20 mark below):
“Drive-in church services that attempt to adhere to social distancing guidelines by keeping worshipers physically apart from one another in their own cars will not be allowed this Easter Sunday in at least one Mississippi community, as the coronavirus crisis has left wide swaths of the country shut down,” reports Fox News.
It happened in the city of Greenville, Miss., where King James Bible Baptist Church previously enacted this ‘drive-in’ format after a state-wide shelter in place order was issued by the governor early this month.
“Churches are strongly encouraged to hold services via Facebook Live, Zoom, Free Conference Call, and any and all other social media, streaming and telephonic platforms,” the mayor of Greenville said in an earlier directive.
But as Fox notes, the governor’s order did not place a specific ban on drive-in services: “The Rev. James Hamilton of the King James Baptist Church in Greenville tried to hold a drive-in service anyway — and police arrived to shut it down, as seen in cellphone video he recorded.”
The pastor can be seen confronting police who just before Good Friday services arrived with multiple squad cars to “warn” the church not to hold any services there, Easter included. The pastor in the video says the police “heard through the grapevine” the congregation was going to hold service at 6:30.
“Ain’t breakin no law, ain’t sellin no drugs, I’m just preaching the word of God – and look at all these police cars here. This is America, private property of a church,” Pastor Hamilton says in the video.
The pastor was told in the confrontation that the city was ready to issue citations to any citizen that comes to the drive-in service.
At about the minute 1:20 mark a police officer actually approaches pastor Hamilton and asserts this astounding line:
“We got an order from the governor, yo rights are suspended.”
In his response the pastor said, “We’re talking about the Constitution – 1st and 2nd Amendment – that was given to us by our forefathers!”
The police officer replied: “It can be suspended, by the military that’s martial law.”Pastor James Hamilton of King James Baptist Church. Multiple police cars raided the church property.
Churchgoers were actually fined $500, according to local media:
Churchgoers who attended a drive-in service at a church in Greenville, Mississippi, were fined $500 for reportedly violating a curfew order from the mayor.
During Thursday night service at King James Bible Baptist Church, while parishoners sat in their vehicles listening to Pastor Charles Hamilton, Greenville Police surrounded the church parking lot.
The lawyer representing the pastor and the church, Jeremy Dys of Frist Liberty Institute, had this to say: “They park in their parking spaces, they keep their windows up, doors closed and they never get out of their cars as the CDC recommends.”
“Look, there’s no exception to the United States Constitution for a pandemic,” Dys said. “What Mayor Simmons has done is to apply an order without regard to equality, and he’s singled out churches, in particular.”
Likely, more such similar scenes will play out across America before the nation emerges from the current coronavirus lockdown, but many are asking: will it be the same America?
“Papers, Please!” Fauci Agrees Gates’ “COVID Immunity Card” Idea “Has Merit”…
Talks of COVID immunity cards have certainly been a hot subject in the last several weeks from high-ranking Western officials. It could be the means to reopen crashed economies seen across Europe and the US.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, America’s top infectious disease expert, told CNN “New Day” host Alisyn Camerota that people could soon carry ‘cards’ proving their immunity to COVID-19.
“Can you imagine a time where Americans carry certificates of immunity?” Camerota asked Fauci during an interview Friday.
“You know, that’s possible,” Fauci responded.
“It’s one of those things that we talk about when we want to make sure that we know who the vulnerable people are and not.”
A few weeks ago, Dr. Anthony Fauci sat down in front of Congress and warned that millions of Americans could die if the federal government didn’t take the outbreak seriously.
And now, after the Trump administration scrambled to ramp up testing capacity and the states worked with the Feds, private entities, and others (including in some cases foreign nations) to distribute ventilators as Gov. Andrew Cuomo painted a horrifying portrait of sickened New Yorkers suffocating to death in hospital hallways because there were no ventilators available.
Well, yesterday, NYC Mayor de Blasio said that, after a few days of near-capacity numbers, hospitalizations have dropped by such a steep degree that the city believes it has enough ventilators on hand, and won’t need anymore.
Now on Thursday, Dr. Fauci is taking to cable news to spread the message of optimism that has lifted US stocks over the past few days: Instead of the 240k figure used by President Trump as recently as two weeks ago, Dr. Fauci told NBC News that if the public continued to stick to the “mitigation efforts”, that the death toll might be as low as 60k.
To be sure, while lockdown conditions are in place around the world, there are still a dozen or so states who don’t have mandatory closure or curfew orders in place.

Dr. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said he’s “cautiously optimistic” that the US might soon see cases reach the back-side of the curve as the “turnaround and that curve not only flatten but are coming down.” He made clear, however, that the virus is never going to disappear, and things will still be different even after we’ve finished going “back to normal”.
“When we attempt to get back to normal, we have to have in place the ability, when it starts to try and rear its ugly head, we can absolutely suppress it by identification, isolation, contact tracing,” he said.
He also warned that this outbreak is a “wake up call”, warning that more serious outbreaks might occur in the future.
This Pestilent Is Revealing to All What Many of Us Have Known for a Long Time: This Godless Nation Was Designed by the Un-Godly to Fail and so Its Failure Was Not Just Predictable but Inevitable
We noted the proposal of immunity cards first appeared in Europe, with Germany, Italy, and the UK all calling for some form of documentation that would allow people who were immune to the disease to travel freely. Imagine stepping into an airport, and an official says, “papers please!” – while referring to a passport, you might also need your COVID immunity card.
Talk of these specialized health passports surfaced in American politics several weeks ago when House Democratic Caucus Chairman Mike Stewart called on Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee to implement an “Immunity Certificate” for first responders and healthcare professionals. Last week, Senator Bill Cassidy pitched the creation of an online registry that would help to identify who tested positive and negative.
And for more confirmation that immunity passports are going to be the next big thing in the Western world, or maybe across the globe. Here is Bill Gates on March 24, giving a 50-minute interview to Chris Anderson, the Curator of TED, the non-profit that runs the TED Talks.
Right at 34:14, Gates discussed how the future in a post-corona world would be. He said:
Eventually what we’ll have to have is certificates of who’s a recovered person, who’s a vaccinated person…
…Because you don’t want people moving around the world where you’ll have some countries that won’t have it under control, sadly.
We’ve noted, immunity passes and “intermittent lockdowns” could become a reality in the months or quarters ahead and last for some time -– as the virologists at JPMorgan believe the virus could unfold in several waves, similar to 1918 Spanish flu pandemic.
This Pestilent Is Revealing to All What Many of Us Have Known for a Long Time: This Godless Nation Was Designed by the Un-Godly to Fail and so Its Failure Was Not Just Predictable but Inevitable of its citizens, impose martial law, and run the country as a dictatorship? According to web-based pundits, the types of crises involved include:
- The threat of imminent nuclear war,
- Simultaneous rioting in multiple U.S. cites,
- A national disaster (such as the outbreak of a new and deadly contagion) that presents an imminent danger to the general populous,
- Widespread terrorist attacks on our own soil,
- An economic depression that leaves tens of millions unemployed and without financial resources,
- A major environmental disaster.
Under these circumstances, what kinds of rights and privileges would likely be suspended? For the answer to that question, it is educational to review the various executive orders that can be invoked by the Office of the President. Here are some of them:
- #10990 enables the government to take over all modes of transportation and control of highways and seaports.
- #10995 enables the government to seize and control the communication media.
- #10997 enables the government to take over all electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels and minerals, public and private.
- #10998 enables the government to take over all food supplies and resources, public and private, including farms and equipment.
- #11000 enables the government to mobilize American civilians into work brigades under government supervision; allows the government to split up families if they believe it necessary.
- #11001 enables the government to take over all health, education and welfare functions and facilities, both public and private.
- #11002 empowers the Postmaster General to operate a national registration of all persons: men, women and children, for government service.
- # 11003 enables the government to take over all airports and aircraft, including commercial aircraft.
- #11004 enables the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate communities, build new housing with public funds, designate areas to be abandoned as “unsafe”, and establish new locations for populations.
- #11005 enables the government to take over railroads, inland waterways and storage facilities, public and private.
- #11051 identifies the responsibilities of the Office of Emergency Planning and gives authorization to invoke all Executive Orders in times of heightened international tensions and economic or financial crisis.
- #11310 grants authority to the Department of Justice to enforce the plans set out in Executive Orders, to institute industrial support, to establish judicial and legislative liaison, to control all aliens, to operate penal and correctional institutions, and to advise and assist the President.
- #11049 assigns emergency preparedness function to federal departments and agencies, consolidating 21 operative Executive Orders issued over a fifteen-year period.
- # 11921 allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency to develop plans to establish control over the mechanisms of production and distribution, of energy sources, wages, salaries, credit and the flow of money in U.S. financial institution in any (undefined) national emergency. It also provides that when a state of emergency is declared by the President, Congress shall cannot review the action for six months.
In cases of true national emergency, many of the powers ascribed by these various executive orders are beneficial. For example, executive order #11002, which grants the Postmaster General authority to plan for a registration system, could be extremely beneficial in a scenario where an earthquake swallowed up all of St. Louis, and the families and friends of more than 2 million people were frantically trying to determine if their friends and loved ones had survived. However, the sweeping scope of the combination of these orders could result in a complete loss of the American way of life if they were abused. All it would require is for the President of the United States to invoke a state of national emergency. At that point, essentially all governmental authority would be under his immediate control. Then, at least for 6 months, a malefactor in that office could essentially maintain control as long as the perception of a national emergency could be maintained, and a lot of damage – some of it permanent – could be done.
Since 1979, a number of people have called the motives of creating these executive orders and the powers of the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) into question. FEMA was created in 1979 under Presidential Memorandum 32 authored for President Carter by Professor Samuel P. Huntington, a Harvard professor and former FEMA Advisory Board chairman. In a document written for the Trilateral Commission in the mid-1970s, Huntington described democracy and economic development as outdated ideas. As co-author of another report prepared for the Trilateral Commission, The Crisis of Democracy, Huntington also wrote:
“We have come to recognize that there are potential desirable limits to economic growth. There are also potentially desirable limits to the indefinite extension of political democracy. A government which lacks authority will have little ability short of cataclysmic crisis to impose on its people the sacrifices which may be necessary.” Huntington’s assertions were transposed into National Security Decision Directive #47 (NSDD47), which was enacted in July 1982. This law laid the groundwork for Emergency Mobilization Preparedness, a plan under which many legal constraints would be waived in the event of a national emergency. This plan was further strengthened in Public Law 101-647, signed into law in November 1990.
Essentially, when the President declares a national emergency (for any reason), FEMA can then implement Executive Orders 10995 through 11005. These Executive Orders permit a takeover by FEMA of local, state, and national governments and the suspension of constitutional guarantees. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Security_and_Homeland_Security_Presidential_Directive) Diana Reynolds authored a series of articles on this topic in 1990. At the time she was a Program Director at the Edward R. Murrow Center at Tufts University. She was also an Assistant Professor of Politics, Bradford College and a Lecturer at Northeastern Univeristy. Among the things she said (http://www.publiceye.org/liberty/fema/Fema_1.html )
“FEMA will have the authority to exert any sort of control that it deems necessary over the American public. A national state of emergency can be declared by a concurrent resolution of both houses of Congress or by the President in the case of natural disasters, nuclear war, a massive mobilization in anticipation of an enemy attack on U.S. territory, or domestic civil unrest.” She also said: ““The scenarios established to trigger FEMA into action are generally found in the society today, economic collapse, civil unrest, drug problems, terrorist attacks, and protests against American intervention in a foreign country. All these premises exist; it could only be a matter of time in which one of these triggers the entire emergency necessary to bring FEMA into action, and then it may be too late, because under the FEMA plan, there is no contingency by which Constitutional power is restored.” Conservative activist Howard J. Ruff agreed, and wrote: “The only thing standing between us and a dictatorship is the good character of the President and the lack of a crisis severe enough that the public would stand still for it.” (http://www.publiceye.org/liberty/fema/Fema_2.html)
So what is the danger that a highly skilled, manipulative and malevolent person could win a Presidential election, and utilize (or even orchestrate) a national disaster to achieve dictatorial control over the United States of America? It’s impossible to say, but when I consider this question, I cannot help but recall a partial list of things that the American public was willing to accept in the background of their current President, including his proud and close association with a pastor who for 20 years proclaimed that God should “damn America”, his association with unrepentant anarchist and bomber William Ayers, his close ties to the organization ACORN (which was later exposed as willing participants to tax evasion and under-age prostitution), and who presided over an administration so determined to get a nationalized health care bill into law that they openly bribed representatives for their votes (the “Louisiana Purchase” and “Cornhusker Kickback”.) Is it unreasonable to assume that this level of deliberate myopia on the part of the left, and apathy and naïveté’ on the part of the right could also permit the country to fall victim to such an individual? I think not. Still, these facts demonstrate only America’s vulnerability; not the likelihood of such an event.
The factors that make this scenario less likely include the vigilance of our press, and the remaining number of US Government officials who are of sound character and sound mind. They represent the checks and balances – formal and informal – that really hold things together. Certainly, over recent years we have seen both of these elements weakened dramatically. Public polls reflecting approval ratings for Congress are abysmal, and for the President they are not much higher. President Obama has recently directed the Department of Justice to stop enforcing those laws that he does not believe to be constitutional (the Defense of Marriage Act), ignoring the express will of the populace and the legislative processes of the United States, and he seems to be getting away with it.
So in summary, the potential impact of this scenario if it occurs is absolutely devastating to the United States as we know it, and as it was designed to operate by our founding fathers. The probability that it will occur, in my estimation, is still low to medium, but is increasing day by day. What do you think?

All the official reassurances won’t be worth a bucket of warm spit. The Globals are behind the CoronaVirus, It Is a Man-Made Bioweapon.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Have NOT Got The Memo Yet, “Pestilences” Has No Cure
The Coronavirus Was Most Certainly Produced by Crazy (Un-Godly) Men in Laboratories, WGO and CDC Knew All Along That the Coronavirus Was a Bioweapon, There’re in Charge?
Well-known medical expert Bill Gates did an AMA on Reddit (transcribed here), in which he casually drops some chilling ideas into the conversation: Ummm, people of God! Am I late? Did I miss this? Did we see this already? Digital certificates to identify those who got the #Covid19 vaccines and TO DO BUSINESS?
Eventually we will have some digital certificates to show who has recovered or been tested recently or when we have a vaccine who has received it.
All in all, our freedoms are being swamped. Big corporations and states alike are setting boundaries on individual rights on a flimsy pretext.
Is anyone in the media reporting that? Of course not. Instead we’re getting fawning celebrity-based drivel like this in the Independent, trying to convince us “we’re all in this together”, or weasel-worded nonsense like this from Jonathan Freed land in The Guardian where he mourns Johnson’s “libertarian” spirit and reluctance to impose social control. That would be the mass-surveying, drone executing, war-supporting type of libertarian. A crass and obvious example of narrative management.
Even members of the alt-media are falling for this, with prominent voices hailing the measures as necessary or demanding “further action” (one usually sane analyst is advocating locking all of those “probably infected” inside empty sports stadiums to be “medically monitored”). Somehow former Goldman Sachs banker and Hedge Fund manager Rishi Sunak is being praised as some kind of Nye Bevan figure. It’s almost literally insane.
If a mandatory vaccination program were to be implemented again in the U.S. for (“Chinese virus”) COVID-19, the government would have to reassure the public its previous negligence of such side effects would not be repeated, an unlikely scenario after the corporate breach of trust exposed on Wall Street in recent years involving large pharmaceutical firms. Regardless, Big Pharma is already partnering with the U.S. army to develop a vaccine for the coronavirus which would have to be tested and evaluated before licensing by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and recommended for use by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), both of which partner with the WHO whose largest financial contributor is the U.S. government.
One of the WHO’s other largest benefactors is the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation with whom it has a partnership on vaccinations. The billionaire Microsoft Corporation founder has used his enormous wealth to dodge paying taxes under the guise of philanthropy and his ‘charitable’ private ventures have mostly focused on producing vaccines for developing countries and purportedly tackling global poverty, especially in Africa. On the surface this may appear to be benevolent work, but like many so-called altruistic projects it is a scheme which allows ultra-wealthy plutocrats like Gates to influence global policy and obtain political power with no accountability by investing in “fixing” the social problems caused by the very system which made them rich, with the expansion of neoliberalism as their real agenda. The consequences of this can be seen with charitable projects involving Gates in the Congo which forced its local agribusiness into using GMO seeds which only benefited private companies like Monsanto.
More disturbing is that in regards to environmental concerns about man-made climate change, Gates has made public his views on curbing human population growth as a solution. At a 2010 TED Conference, Gates stated:
“First we got population. The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s headed up to about 9 billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.”
To put it another way, one of the world’s wealthiest men admitted in public he believes vaccines should be used for depopulation, just as he is financially investing in both developing and delivering them to countries in the global south. The misanthropic myth of ‘overpopulation’ pushed by Gates and the elite not only suggests that depopulation is a solution for slowing the warming of the climate but retains the logic of an essential component of eugenics with the implicit idea that the quality of life for the human species can be improved by discouraging human reproduction. Since developing countries have the highest child mortality rates, families are more likely to be larger because children are less likely to survive. Hence, the inherent racism and classism in such a misconception.
The number of Orphans aging out of Child Protective Custody has grown at an alarming rate. The 127 Faith Foundation receives many requests each week to house them at our ranch. Our prayer is that the good people of our country will step up to the challenge and offer financial support for "the least among us." We need your help!
