Look how many dislikes Sleepy got when he spoke on how to reduce gun violence! In this video Sleepy is announcing the steps he will take in this initiative but he himself cannot walk up the steps of Air Force One without falling! Hmmm!
Facebook is a Marxist/Socialist/Communist stooge organization.

Follow the science say those in authority, but whose science? Wear a mask and then don’t wear a mask! This stuff is scary!
‘Quoting from the results of a study carried out in 1963 by Stanley Milgram, Chuck Colson predicted the kind of C0V1D-19 lockdown authoritarianism that was birthed by Communist Chinese authorities and copycatted all around the world.
The Milgram ‘shock experiment’ was a study into “the conflict between obedience to authority and personal conscience.”
Milgram’s aim was to see how “easily ordinary people could be influenced into committing atrocities, for example, Germans in WWII.”
He designed the study to answer questions raised by the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials, and the defence’s justification that those on trial “were only following orders.” [i]
In 1974, Milgram himself wrote:
“I set up a simple experiment at Yale University to test how much pain an ordinary citizen would inflict on another person simply because he was ordered to by an experimental scientist.
“Stark authority was pitted against the subjects’ [participants’] strongest moral imperatives against hurting others, and, with the subjects’ [participants’] ears ringing with the screams of the victims, authority won more often than not.”
Colson explained that up to 80% of those who participated in Milgram’s experiment were willing to “inflict painful electric shocks on another person if an authority figure told them to do so.” [ii]
In 2007, Santa Clara University’s, Jerry Burger ‘replicated the experiment, and Burger’s results were nearly identical with Milgram.’
This prompted New York Times’ Adam Cohen to conclude that “ordinary Americans are about as willing to blindly follow orders to inflict pain on an innocent stranger as they were four decades ago.”
Colson, not surprised by the results said, “the two experiments are a huge cautionary tale of how people respond to authority.”
The studies, he said, show that “nothing changes about human nature; we really do blindly follow authority, and very few people challenge it.”
Colson wrote, “when there’s social chaos, people will choose order over liberty. It’s the reason why, if you give a prison guard or a government clerk a little power, they become abusive.”
The “only real barrier preventing people from inflicting pain is conscience,” which Colson explains is our God-given “internal moral bearings” (see Romans 2:15) that have to be nurtured into maturity.
The problem and its cause are, as the Milgram/Burger studies infer, a lack of Godly nurturing, which is the consequence of “the breakdown of the family and moral decay in American life.”
The abdication from nurturing our God-given internal moral bearings blinds us to tyranny and binds us to sinful participation in it.
People will obey a lawful authority without question because there’s no acknowledgement of God; no other authority or power higher than Government fiats and stuffy, bloated Bureaucratic rules.
This is God vs. Government-become-god territory.
Where unjust laws are obeyed because, as Colson argued, “people have lost the concept of a law beyond the law.”
Which, says Colson, leads to a rejection of civil liberties, because “given a choice between order and chaos, Americans will always choose order – even if it shuts down some of our freedoms.”
The act of civil disobedience, he said, also becomes a farce, because “in a morally relativistic era, there’s nothing that kicks in and tells us that something is wrong.”
A docile, conditioned polis simply can’t know what they’re protesting, or find reasons to justify why.
It was a dismal prediction. Now a C0V1D-19 reality.
Atheist, secular humanist Governments following their Communist Chinese counterparts turned neighbour against neighbour. The police were weaponised against the people they’re paid to protect, and fighting the virus became about denouncing people perceived to be lockdown “lawbreakers.”
The highest civic duty was the surrender of civil liberties, wearing a mask, not questioning the mandated medical advice from bureaucrats, applauding their disaster porn, and staying glued to the media’s daily “briefings.”
As Milgram, commenting on the outcome of his experiment noted: “The extreme willingness of adults to go to almost any lengths on the command of an authority constitutes the chief finding of the study and the fact most urgently demanding explanation.”
To paraphrase Colson, the only sure-fire way to protect civil liberties, and live out just civil disobedience, is by ‘courageously asserting the law beyond the law’; disobeying unjust laws that are contrary to our internal moral bearings, informed as they are, by the self-revealing God of Grace, and His objective moral law.
Though it may seem like we are being “plunged into the abyss of hell,” Charles Spurgeon once said, “God does not leave us there alone.”
The “star of hope is still in the sky when the night is blackest. Surely out of death, darkness, and despair, we shall yet arise to Life, light and liberty.”’https://caldronpool.com/follow-the-science-obedience-to-authority-vs-personal-conscience/

‘TAIPEI, TAIWAN – Hong Kong’s legislature will undergo major changes to its format and structure as a result of Beijing’s approval of a political shakeup that will expand its control over the semiautonomous city.
China’s National People’s Congress, the Communist Party’s rubber-stamp legislative body, passed a resolution earlier this month proposing the overhaul, which would make it harder for candidates from Hong Kong’s pro-democracy opposition to be elected.
The revamp, signed into law Tuesday by President Xi Jinping, reduces the number of directly elected seats on Hong Kong’s Legislative Council and increases the number of pro-Beijing voices.
Those seeking office will face strict vetting by a special committee, which critics expect to shut out pro-democracy forces and ensure that “patriots” govern the Chinese city.
Lee Cheuk Yan, a veteran pro-democracy activist and former lawmaker, told VOA that it’s a “disastrous act” for Hong Kong.
“I think it’s closer to the National People’s Congress, which also have the candidates before any election takes place. There will not be any more credibility for this Legislative Council in the future,” he said.
Fewer selections by public
In its current form, the Legislative Council has 70 members, of which 35 are selected every four years by popular vote from various municipal constituencies and district councils.
Under the reforms, Legislative Council seats will increase to 90, of which the public will vote for only 20, down from 35. The lawmaking body’s Election Committee, which is heavily pro-Beijing and tasked with appointing Hong Kong’s chief executive, will be expanded to 1,500 members from 1,200.
Lee said during his time as a Legislative Council lawmaker from 1995 to 2016, the aim was to gradually increase the number of seats to be filled by public elections.
“Don’t go too quick, too fast — we have to make a gradual step,” he said. “The debate was always about the speed, never about the direction. But now this time, the direction is backwards and it’s really a shock to us.”
The former lawmaker believes those seeking greater democracy will have to wait for more opportunities in the future.
“I think we have to prepare ourselves to be outside the system for some time to come, for years to come, wait it out,” Lee told VOA. “Wait for Hong Kong people to continue [voicing protest], if possible on the street, to work it out in civil society.”
Lee is due in court Thursday to learn his fate on a charge of illegal assembly in relation to pro-democracy protests in 2019. He has four cases outstanding.’https://www.voanews.com/east-asia-pacific/beijing-led-electoral-reforms-hong-kong-redefine-democracy-critics-say
The way things are going in the West this may be our future as well!
The CCP has the West exactly where it wants it; under their thumb. The China virus was a weapon sent out from China to destroy what was left of the West. Now, with biding his time Biden in the WH there is no stopping this take over. Sadly, the make believe Christians go along with whatever the officials say the pseudo ‘science’ says to do. So, ‘In early March, Harry Schmidt learned the answers to questions some religious conference organizers may be asking: What’s it like to hold an in-person event in the midst of an ongoing pandemic?
When more than 300 planners and exhibitors gathered in North Carolina at the Religious Conference Management Association’s annual meeting, they got a glimpse of what could be ahead for their upcoming convocations, synods and general assemblies:
Four people — sitting 6 feet apart — were served fresh prepackaged meals at round tables set 10 feet apart in a ballroom in the Charlotte Convention Center.
Attendees walked along one-way aisles in the exhibit area, where they could speak face-to-face — or, rather, mask-to-mask — but there was no handing out of “trade-show tchotchkes.”
Registrants were screened before entering the building and given a QR code to present once they were inside.
“It really became a great model,” said Schmidt, president and CEO of the Indianapolis-based association that worked in collaboration with regional convention and public health officials in planning the event.
“Everybody wore a mask at all times except for when they were actually consuming food.”’https://julieroys.com/conference-continues-covid-19/?mc_cid=3641bfe77d&mc_eid=b13d34ad49
So much for free speech!!!
‘A professor at the University of San Diego School of Law is under investigation by administrators for a personal blog post that used colorful language in reference to Chinese government propaganda.
“If you believe that the coronavirus did not escape from the lab in Wuhan, you have to at least consider that you are an idiot who is swallowing whole a lot of Chinese cock swaddle,” wrote Professor Thomas Smith on March 10 on his blog the Right Coast.
Students took notice and complained, and Smith appended an update.
“It appears that some people are interpreting my reference to ‘Chinese cock swaddle,’ as a reference to an ethnic group. That is a misinterpretation. To be clear, I was referring to the Chinese government,” Smith added to the post.
Despite Smith’s clarification, as well as the fact that he wrote it on his personal blog and not in an official capacity as a law professor, he remains under investigation.’https://www.thecollegefix.com/usd-law-professor-under-investigation-for-personal-blog-post-critical-of-chinese-government/
‘USD officials said they do not condone racist language and the incident is under review. The Asian Pacific American Law Student Association released a list of several demands, CBS 8 reported. In addition to Smith’s firing, they included giving students the right to opt out of his class and a reporting system “for students to access when there is offensive conduct by faculty or staff at USD.”’https://www.insidehighered.com/quicktakes/2021/03/22/u-san-diego-professor-investigated-anti-china-blog-post
Would the CCP lie? What a silly question!
‘The timeline of the COVID-19 outbreak published by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has been questioned by experts after an official claimed on March 5 that many executives in his company took an experimental CCP virus vaccine in March 2020.
Yu Qingming, party secretary and CEO of Sinopharm Group Co., Ltd. (Sinopharm) claimed that executives and senior leaders of China National Pharmaceutical Group (CNPG), the parent company of Sinopharm, had received the vaccines developed by the group as early as March 2020.
Sinopharm is a Chinese state-owned pharmaceutical company.
Yu also claimed that the antibody level remains high after one year.
His statement is completely incompatible with the CCP’s previous propaganda about the source of the virus and the development of vaccines.’ https://www.theepochtimes.com/chinas-covid-19-timeline-questioned-after-official-claims-to-be-vaccinated-in-march-2020_3731984.html
One must truly wonder if there are any conservative governments left in this world. Australia’s Federal government likes to spout that it is conservative but in reality it is not conservative in finances or culture. The Morrison government may not be as left as Labor is but it isn’t far behind. And when you consider the states that have Liberal governments it isn’t any better. The climate scam has taken over all the state governments as well as the Federal. I wrote to our state Federal member who is supposedly a conservative concerning the direction the Federal government was going in renewable stupidity and he wrote back saying the science is in. Well, anyway, here is Episode 3 of Spectator Australia TV and HOW SCOTT MORRISON IS FAILING AUSTRALIA IN 2021!
The world seems to be in love with the CCP and ‘As the world is celebrating International Women’s Day, let’s not forget the horrifying abuses that mothers and sisters, and even grandmothers, are subjected to in the land of communist China.
Since the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) came to power in 1949, it has been employing unethical ways to persecute citizens and suppress spiritual groups. Recently, several reports have confirmed how the CCP is using sexual abuse as a tool for re-educating and transforming prisoners of faith, regardless of their age.
Rooted in atheism and materialism, the communist regime has been brutally suppressing Uyghur Muslims, Christians, Buddhists, and Falun Gong practitioners for years. Those who refuse to comply with the CCP’s orders are detained and taken to secretive “re-education camps” where they are subjected to unimaginable abuses, including gang rape and electrocution.’ For the entire article please go to https://www.theepochtimes.com/mass-rape-sexual-abuse-communist-chinas-genocidal-tool-to-eliminate-faith_3716865.html?utm_source=newsnoe&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=breaking-2021-03-08-4
CCP Dictator Daniel Andrews is playing the China virus for all he can. Now, ‘Pre-covid, a State of Emergency could only be declared for a maximum of six months. This extension will bring the total to one year and nine months.
Daniel Andrews won the vote after reaching backroom deals with Greens leader Samantha Ratnam, Reason Party MP Fiona Patten and Andy Meddick from the Animal Justice Party.
About 100 protesters gathered outside to voice their opposition to extending the declared State of Emergency.
The State of Emergency gives the government and police unprecedented powers to lock down the city, enter homes, detain citizens, enforce masks and much more.
During the rally outside parliament, police threatened to arrest protesters when the group reached more than 100.
Monica Smit from Reignite Democracy said she wasn’t afraid anymore and that no matter what, the group were not leaving.
Another organiser, Morgan C Jonas told Tom Elliot that the State of Emergency is “an extraordinary consolidation of power by the Victorian government”.
Member of Parliament, Dr Catherine Cumming joined the crowd outside, telling them that she voted against the extension.’https://www.rebelnews.com/this_is_what_happened_at_the_state_of_emergency_protest_in_melbourne?utm_campaign=ay_emergency_3_3_21&utm_medium=email&utm_source=therebel
