John MacArthur’s LA County Church Continues To Fight For Freedom To Hold Indoor Services



The church, which has repeatedly made headlines since its leadership decided to resume services last July in defiance of state and local health mandates, was issued an injunction last September by L.A. Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff that ordered them against holding indoor services.

The injunction also required that congregants wear masks and socially distance even during outdoor services.

Grace Community Church and its legal representation will be in court next Friday on their motion to dissolve the injunction.

Among the documents filed was a declaration from Grace’s senior pastor John MacArthur, who addressed allegations from a blog post that his church is not reporting outbreaks of COVID-19 among the congregation. As The Daily Wire reported last November, the church was cleared by county public health officials after three out of their approximately 7,000 members came down with COVID-19 in October.

FBI Warns Americans Who Use Fake Vaccine Passports ‘May Be Breaking The Law’

President Joe Biden’s administration has been working with major corporations to establish a nationwide vaccine passport, and last month New York rolled out its own vaccine passports, which state residents will need to show in order to get into most sports and entertainment venues.


Now, the FBI is warning people against using fake vaccine passports.

“We’ve all seen friends posting their #COVID19 vaccination cards on social media,” wrote the Minneapolis branch of the FBI on social media. “If you make or buy a fake one to misrepresent your vaccination status, you endanger other people and may also be breaking the law.”




Because Computer Databases are always 110 % Accurate :sarcasm:


Plus I'd like to know what Law is being broken - Federal / State / Local

Who Needs the 14th Amendment? Vermont's Blatantly Unconstitutional Vaccine Rules Prioritize 'BIPOC' Households


The state health commissioner says it’s not race per se that’s the determining factor. It’s that people of color have higher rates of infection, disease, and death, as well as lower rates of vaccination.

This is statistically true. But the Constitution says that’s not enough, says Cato Institute legal expert Walter Olson.

“This runs into the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution, which says citizens of all races are entitled to the equal protection of the laws. The Supreme Court has long interpreted this to mean that the government may ordinarily not dole out valuable benefits, or impose harms, based on a citizen’s race,” writes Olson.

Reason:

It’s true that people of color are more likely to be frontline workers or have health conditions that make them more at risk of COVID-19 complications and death. However, directing vaccines to those higher-risk people can, and should, still be done through race-neutral categorization, says Olson.
“Many sensible priority rules do incidentally protect relatively more minority persons — and that’s fine, so long as the decision is based on the neutral grounds rather than being a pretext aimed at getting results based on race,” he writes.
NRO’s Isaac Shorr refers to the policy as “dystopian.”

The problem with this vaccine prioritization scheme is not so much practical as it is a matter of principle. Racial preferences in vaccine distribution during a pandemic seem like a lab-made recipe for fomenting racial discord, balkanizing American society, and sowing distrust in our institutions. The fact that shots are being made available to BIPOC only — a strange and seemingly arbitrary category of people with completely different life experiences — isn’t likely to have major public-health consequences. It should be expected, however, to have a number of deleterious downstream consequences, in addition to just being flat-out wrong.
Oh, dear. He used the “W” word. Mr. Schorr should know by now that there’s no such thing as “right” or “wrong” — only what feels good.
Schorr finds several specific things wrong with the policy, including its detrimental impact on national unity and the precedent it establishes to create other race-based policies.

The Suicide of Expertise



There is no human being on the planet who has changed their story more than Anthony Fauci. He’s a doctor, he went to medical school and graduated, but there isn’t much to suggest he’s treated a patient since the late 1960s. He’s a bureaucrat, a pretty bad one, who became “known,” as they say, for his work on an AIDS vaccine. If you’re playing the home game, there is no AIDS vaccine. That makes him the Steve Bartman of vaccine development. (No offense to Steve Bartman, I would’ve done the same thing in that seat and Bartman didn’t go on to spend the rest of this life telling the Cubs how to play baseball).

Through it all, Fauci has managed to become the highest-paid person in the federal government, even more than the President of the United States. The attention and fame he’s garnered through the pandemic will lead to a seven, maybe eight, figure book deal and a speaking fee rivaling any world leader.

Unfortunately, Fauci’s salary of $416,608 breaks down to roughly $758 per contradiction over the past year. Name a side of an issue and he’s been on it. There has been zero consistency for that money. A mortal would have been fired, he will be carved into a mountain, if liberals have their way.

Every TV doctor and medical contributor to any outlet has been embarrassingly wrong about everything. Unable to fend off the pull everyone in journalism has succumbed to, they uncritically parrot whatever the latest supposition is. When someone, say a Dr. Scott Atlas, questions the current narrative, they are smeared as a kook and audiences are always reminded that they are “not a virologist.” These reminders are usually conveyed by people like Sanjay Gupta, a neurosurgeon, or the former head of Planned Parenthood, also not a virologist.

Biden’s Notorious COVID Adviser Is Still Fearmongering About ‘Category 5 Hurricane’ Pandemic

“First of all, let me say that at this time, we really are in a Category 5 hurricane status with regard to the rest of the world,” Osterholm said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday. “At this point, we will see in the next two weeks the highest number of cases reported globally since the beginning of the pandemic. In terms of the United States, we’re just at the beginning of this surge. We haven’t even really begun to see it yet.”

In addition to making bold predictions about case numbers in the United States, the director for the University of Minnesota’s Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy also praised Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky for being a “truth-teller” and said the message sent out by health experts at the agency “was completely consistent [about vaccines], although it may confuse the public.”

“When you get vaccinated, it’s like buying a fireproof suit that works 90 to 95 percent of the time, but it doesn’t work all the time. So why want to walk into a big fire if you don’t have to? What they’re basically saying is, yes, if you are vaccinated, you can start opening up a lot of things in your life that you couldn’t do before. But now, if you know you’re going to be walking into a fire, why do it?” Osterholm questioned. “Get vaccinated. That’s your fireproof suit, but don’t put yourself in harm’s way unnecessarily because it’s not going to be foolproof.”

'Police State': Cops Swarm ANOTHER Canadian Church for COVID Defiance and the Woke Crowd Cheers

At dawn on Wednesday morning in Edmonton, Alberta – in an area that looks like it’s the middle of a prairie – Alberta Health Services police and cops with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) swarmed the GraceLife Church to cut off the building from its parishioners.

Police and crews arrived at oh-dark-30 to erect fencing around the church property to send a message that the church would not be able to worship on site until the government gave permission.

The church’s pastor was previously jailed for 35 days for defying shut-down orders.

Ezra Levant, the founder of Rebel News, noted the obvious “police state” tactics of locking people people out of church.
