Down God’s People, or at Least That’s What the Ungodly NWO People Assumed, There’s No Better Place to Start Persecuting the Christian Than in the State of California, Hell On Earth…

A California church and its bishop have asked the US Supreme Court to step in after the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals struck down their emergency application to reopen amid the coronavirus pandemic, in defiance of executive orders issued by Gov. Gavin Newsom.

Gov. Gavin Newsom and many of his colleagues have waited for this opportunity for a long time, using the Fake coronavirus lockdown to make their decisions look genuine. Still, the truth is they hate Christians, and they’ll do whatever it takes to close the doors of the church, here’s the problem, this is all been done before, you cannot remove God from a Christian’s heart. These are the worst of the worst persecutors, God-haters, family haters, it should be gruesome these people are evil…

Lawyers for the South Bay United Pentecostal Church and Bishop Arthur Hodges filed with the USSC after the 9th Circuit panel split 2-1, with Judges Barry Silverman and Jacqueline Nguyen – appointed by Clinton and Obama respectively – wrote in their Friday order “We’re dealing here with a highly contagious and often fatal disease for which there presently is no known cure,” adding “In the words of Justice Robert Jackson if a ‘court does not temper its doctrinaire logic with a little practical wisdom, it will convert the constitutional Bill of Rights into a suicide pact.’”

Apparently a fatality rate below 0.3% counts as ‘often fatal,’ and it would be a ‘suicide pact’ to allow people to worship freely while accepting the well-established risks of contracting COVID-19.

The panel’s third judge, Trump appointee Daniel Collins, weighed in with an 18-page dissent arguing that Gov. Newsom’s orders intrude on religious freedom protected by the First Amendment, according to Politico.

“I do not doubt the importance of the public health objectives that the State puts forth, but the State can accomplish those objectives without resorting to its current inflexible and over-broad ban on religious services,” wrote Collins, who noted that the Governor’s orders allow many workplaces to open, while religious gatherings remain banned even if they can meet social distancing requirements imposed on other permitted activities.

“By explicitly and categorically assigning all in-person ‘religious services’ to a future Phase 3 — without any express regard to the number of attendees, the size of the space, or the safety protocols followed in such services8 — the State’s Reopening Plan undeniably ‘discriminate[s] on its face’ against ‘religious conduct,” Collins continued.

The legal dispute may turn on how much weight the justices choose to give to a 115-year-old Supreme Court precedent, Jacobson v. Massachusetts, which upheld a mandatory vaccination scheme for smallpox.

Lawyers for Newsom have argued that the decision gives states broad powers during a public health emergency and effectively supersedes typical protections for First Amendment activity, including religious practice.

While the 1905 high court ruling remains on the books with no case since where the justices have grappled with similar issues, in his dissent from the Friday 9th Circuit order, Collins sounded skeptical about the sweep of the century-old case.

“Even the most ardent proponent of a broad reading of Jacobson must pause at the astonishing breadth of this assertion of government power over the citizenry, which in terms of its scope, intrusiveness, and duration is without parallel in our constitutional tradition,” he said. –Politico

In other parts of the country, challenges to pandemic lockdowns have been met with mixed results in federal courts. For example, New Orleans’ Fifth Circuit and the Cincinnati Sixth Circuit have granted emergency relief to churches in defiance of state orders, while Chicago’s 7th Circuit joined the San Francisco-based 9tth circuit in declining to intervene.

Chicago Mayor Lightfoot Defies President Trump — Sends Armed Police Squad to Shut Down Black Baptist Church in Southside Chicago

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot lashed out at President Trump on Friday as “foolish” after he deemed all churches and synagogues and places of worship as “essential.”

Lightfoot says President Trump has no power to override her local lockdown on churches and businesses.

Chicago police fined three churches last weekend for holding worship services.

South Side Churches cheered President Trump’s announcement on Friday.

On Sunday the Chicago mayor defied President Trump and sent an armed police squad to a Black Baptist Church on the Southside of Chicago.

Todd Starnes reported:

Courtney Lewis, the pastor of Cornerstone Baptist Church in Chicago, was in the middle of his sermon when he heard loud banging on front doors. It was the police and they were denied entry into the sanctuary according to Todd Starnes.

Mayor Lori Lightfoot had dispatched three squad cars and two unmarked cars filled with armed officers. A representative from the mayor’s office was also present.

(On a side note – I warned Americans in my new book that the left would try and shut down American churches. Click here to read “Culture Jihad: How to Stop the Left From Killing a Nation.”)

Pastor Lewis said the intent was to shut down their Sunday services. It was “like the Soviet-style KGB,” he said.

“The only thing she hasn’t done yet is beat the doors down and arrest our members,” the pastor said.

Terrible. The shutdown occurred right in the middle of a sermon. Mayor Lightfoot should be using her police department to fight the violent crime plaguing Chicago, instead of terrorizing defenseless congregants in a church. The pastor is rightfully calling on the DOJ and President Trump for help. The American people must put a stop to this tyranny, by voting the Democrats out of office in November. There is no other choice. #Blexit! #GOP2020!

Chicago Mayor Lightfoot Sends Armed Police To Shut Down Black Baptist Church

By Godfather Politics, May 24, 2020

Pastor Lewis said Christian pastors are under attack in Chicago and they need help: “All we are seeking is the same consideration and trust that is being tendered toward the liquor stores, abortion clinics and Walmart,” he told the Todd Starnes Show.

Courtney Lewis, the pastor of Cornerstone Baptist Church in Chicago, was in the middle of his sermon when he heard loud banging on front doors. It was the police and they were denied entry into the sanctuary according to Todd Starnes.

Mayor Lori Lightfoot had dispatched three squad cars and two unmarked cars filled with armed officers. A representative from the mayor’s office was also present.

Pastor Lewis said the intent was to shut down their Sunday services. It was “like the Soviet-style KGB,” he said.

“The only thing she hasn’t done yet is beat the doors down and arrest our members,” the pastor said.

Pastor Lewis tells the Todd Starnes Radio Show that the men of the church were instructed not to open the doors during the services — per protocol.

“Thankfully our doors were locked as a normal safety precaution we take each service to protect our members from the escalating gun violence in Chicago,” the pastor said.

A church usher, who is typically positioned outside the building during the services, saw the mayor’s goon force attempt to enter the building and began taking photographs.

Even more disturbing, an individual in an unmarked car with tinted windows was seen filming and photographing church members as they arrived to worship Jesus Christ.

“The mayor wants to educate everyone into compliance – which means intimidate,” the pastor said.

Who Is Lori Lightfoot's Wife? Everything To Know About Amy Eshleman

It Appears Chicago Is in Deep Trouble With Mayor Lightfoot, She’s a Lesbian, Anti-Christian, Anti-Family, Puke, You Folks From Chicago That Voted Her/He In–Now Enjoy the Ungodly Ride to the Bottom

Lightfoot made history.

Lori Lightfoot is the current Mayor of Chicago. Not only is she the first black female mayor, but she’s also the first openly gay mayor in the city’s history. Before winning the election, she worked in a private legal practice, and was President of the Chicago Police Board and chair of the Chicago Police Accountability Task Force.

She announced her candidacy for Mayor of Chicago in May 2018, and just one year later, she will be sworn into office in May 2019. She won more than 73 percent of the overall vote in the runoff, and won every ward in the city.

In her acceptance speech, Lightfoot had a positive outlook for the future, saying, “Out there tonight a lot of little girls and boys are watching. They’re watching us. And they’re seeing the beginning of something, well… a little different. They’re seeing a city reborn, a city where it doesn’t matter what color you are, where it sure doesn’t matter how tall you are, where it doesn’t matter who you love, just as long as you love with all your heart…

In the Chicago we will build together, we will celebrate our differences. We will embrace our uniqueness. And we will make certain that we all have every opportunity to succeed. Every child out there should know this: Each of you, one day, can be the Mayor of Chicago.”

But throughout her campaign, there was one person who stood by her: her wife.

Who is Lori Lightfoot’s wife?

Here are six things to know about Amy Eshleman, who will become Chicago’s first lady when Lightfoot is sworn in.

She’s from Illinois.

Eshleman is from Sterling, IL, but has lived in Chicago since the early 90s. In high school, she played on the basketball and tennis teams; her school’s 1977 girls basketball team became the first girls basketball state champions in the state. She was also a member of the National Honor Society.

She holds multiple degrees.View this post on Instagram

After graduating high school, she attended Miami University in Ohio. She earned a bachelor’s degree in history from the college.

She worked for the Chicago Public Library for almost 20 years.

From 1994 to 2012, Eshleman worked as a Chicago Public Library assistant commissioner. She helped develop YOUmedia, a digital media center for teens; the program has been successful since its inception in 2009 and spread to the national level, where President Obama cited the center as innovative.

Eshleman also helped expand similar programs nationally while in her role as “leader for education” at the Urban Libraries Council. Chance the Rapper and Vic Mensa credit YOUMedia with helping to launch their music careers.

They’ve been together for a long time.View this post on Instagram

A post shared by The Guardian (@guardian) on Apr 3, 2019 at 8:49am PDT

Eshleman and Lightfoot apparently met through Mary Dempsey, the Chicago Public Library Commissioner; Eshleman was Dempsey’s assistant commissioner. The couple has been together for 16 years, and got married the day same-sex marriage was legalized in Illinois.

According to Eshleman, the couple waited to get married and were surrounded with the anxiety of coming out: “You don’t know what your life is going to be like. You want certain things for yourself, and falling in love and having a family and doing all those things felt really important to us. To be able to be married on that day felt really big.”

They have a daughter.

The couple have an 11-year-old daughter, Vivian. The family lives in Logan Square.

Their openness had a major impact on the campaign.View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Lori Lightfoot (@lightfootforchi) on Jun 11, 2019 at 7:05am PDT

Their support for the LGBT community led to people to back the candidate. Brian Johnson, CEO of Equality Illinois, “a Chicago-based nonprofit dedicated to LGBTQ rights,” said the support “was a major, major piece. Thirty to 35 years ago, our bars were still being raided. Now we’re represented in City Hall by the mayor. That’s a pretty profound switch.”

Eshleman and Lightfoot also walked in June 2018’s Chicago Pride Parade, and according to Eshleman, the experience was “one of the most profound and emotional and humbling” moments, showing that the people of Chicago are “open and welcoming and diverse and loving and nonjudgmental.”

Lightfoot has drawn some controversy during the coronavirus quarantine.

Photos of the mayor recently cropped up on social media that showed her getting a haircut with a stylist during the quarantine. The state currently has a stay-at-home order in effect and salons are not open.

When asked about it, Lightfoot responded, “I think what really people want to talk about is, we’re talking about people dying here. We’re talking about significant health disparities. I think that’s what people care most about. The woman who cut my hair had a mask and gloves on so we are, I am practicing what I’m preaching.”

A reporter also brought up an instance during a coronavirus public service announcement where the mayor told someone, “Getting your roots done is not essential.”

Lightfoot responded by saying, “I’m the public face of this city. I’m on national media and I’m out in the public eye. I’m a person who, I take my personal hygiene very seriously. As I said, I felt like I needed to have a haircut. I’m not able to do that myself, so I got a haircut. You want to talk more about that?”

Alderman Carlos Ramirez-Rosa criticized her explanation, writing on Twitter, “She is under no obligation to look good on national TV. She is under no obligation to book national interviews. But she is under an obligation to follow and promote social distancing in order to save lives. This is a bad example for our city.” Source:

The accumulating death toll from Covid-19 can be seen minute-by-minute on cable news channels. But there’s another death toll few seem to care much about: the number of poverty-related deaths being set in motion by deliberately plunging millions of Americans into poverty and despair.

American health care, as we call it today, and for all its high-tech miracles, has evolved into one of the most atrocious rackets the world has ever seen. By racket, I mean an enterprise organized explicitly to make money dishonestly.

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.

    I thought it interesting that during the Democratic YouTube debate, when asked if Hillary was a liberal, she preferred to refer to herself as a “progressive”.

    “Progressive” is one of those words that certainly sounds like it should be a good thing, right? I mean, who doesn’t want progress! The issue is, however, what are we “Progressing” toward?

    Make no mistake about it – Hillary Clinton is every bit the Socialist that her husband is. One has to only scan through a few of Clinton’s policies in economic, spending, and tax strategy to see that sovereignty and personal freedoms are the items actually targeted for reduction.
