More Than These: A Call for Reformation by Pastor Ralph Ovadal. This is a hard-hitting, brilliant critique of the Roman Church State’s use of the Pro-Life Movement to advance its ecumenical efforts among Bible-believing Protestants. It includes numerous references to recently defrocked Roman Catholic Priest Frank Pavone, who is being held up as a martyr for his faith by some in the Conservative Movement. Not only is Frank Pavone an unrepentant Roman Catholic, but for many years he has also been at the forefront of Rome’s efforts to bring American Protestants “home to Rome.” I discuss Frank Pavone in this podcast.

Over the past few years, it’s been common to hear defenders of social media censorship retort to those who complain about, “Twitter is a private company, and they can ban whom they want.  If you don’t like it, go start your own Twitter!” 

One interesting aspect of this argument is that those who made it generally were individuals who were not known to respect laissez-faire capitalism or private property.  In fact, they tended to be socialists of one stripe or another. 

Those who complained about the censorship, generally those people who tended to favor political and economic liberty, then were wrongfooted.  Either they felt they had to call for government regulation of social media, which contradicted their free market principles or to make charges that the government was behind the censorship, at which point they’d be called “conspiracy theorists.”

“Conspiracy theorist” is one of those terms that seemingly everyone wants to avoid.  “I’m by no means a conspiracy theorist,” is a common turn of phrase people will use when they’re about to introduce an idea that sounds like a conspiracy theory.  It’s as if to believe in conspiracies is the very height of ignorance, and that one must deny conspiracies exist if he wants to remain a member of society in good standing. 

But conspiracies do exist and are even recognized in criminal law.  In many Western nations, one can be charged with conspiracy to commit murder.  In the Bible, we find many conspiracies. When Absalom sought to overthrow David, his plot was rightly described in the King James Bible as a conspiracy.  Twice, the Apostle Paul found himself the object of conspiracies to kill him.  The arrest and crucifixion of Christ was the culmination of a three-year-long conspiracy by the Jewish religious leaders to get rid of the man they perceived, rightly, as a threat to their power.  Doubtless, other examples of conspiracies can be found in the Bible, but these should be sufficient to make the point that conspiracies are not a figment of the imagination, but a documented historical reality. 

If he has done nothing else, Elon Musk has exposed for all the world to see that the “conspiracy theorists” were right.  As the Twitter Files have revealed, the government was deeply involved in the social media censorship business.  Not that there was any lack of evidence of this previously.  For example, the New York Post ran a headline on July 15, 2021, that read, “White House ‘flagging’ posts for Facebook to censor over COVID ‘misinformation.’” The Independent ran a piece on February 3, 2022, with the headline, “White House urges Spotify to take further action on Joe Rogan: “More can be done.’”  Why did the White House want Spotify to censor Joe Rogan?  It was due to the popular podcaster’s explosive interview with Dr. Robert Malone, who among other things, called the hysteria over Covid an example of “mass formation psychosis.”

“We are Republicans, and don’t propose to leave our party and identify ourselves with the party whose antecedents have been rum, Romanism, and rebellion.  We are loyal to our flag.”

  • Dr. Samuel D. Burchard

Because there are more important things going on.”  That was Joe Biden’s answer to a reporter who asked him why he wasn’t going to visit the border while he was in Arizona. 

It would be hard to find a single statement from this evil man that would better summarize his entire administration than this.  You may even say it’s his Marie Antoinette moment, the queen of France who is said to have responded “let them eat cake” when told the peasants had no bread.

As her statement was a callous dismissal of the suffering of the poor people of France, the very people for whom she had a responsibility as a member of France’s royal family, so too does Biden’s brusque comment to the reporter show his callous disregard for the suffering his irresponsible immigration policies have caused the American people and will cause them in the future.

Not a few times has this author heard Biden’s policies described as “a failure” by various media pundits.  For example, CNN ran a headline in October that reads “’Hail Mary after Hail Mary’: Biden administration struggles with border policy, fueling frustration.”  Center for Immigration Studies, a group that opposes the sort of mass immivasion that’s taking place on our southern border wrote a piece titled “Biden’s border policy may be 2021’s biggest failure.” Or take this article from the Washington Post, “’No end in sight” Inside the Biden administration’s failure to contain the border surge.” Many other such references can be found in the media, both from liberal as well as conservative sources.

But what if Biden’s border disaster is not a failure at all, but rather a roaring success?  Even before he took office, Biden and the Democrats generally signaled their intention to reverse the Trump administration’s border enforcement policies that had done a great deal to cut down on illegal immigration.  According to this article, on day one of his administration Biden signed seven, seven!, executive orders essentially gutting all the progress Trump had made on immigration during his four years in office.  Did Biden not know what he was doing?  Some people think he’s so senile that he was clueless.  I’m not so sure.  But whether it was Biden himself doing this or whether he was just carrying out the order of his handlers, whoever was responsible for these executive orders had to know full well that they would create chaos at our southern border and were willing to accept that chaos as the price of doing business.  Put differently, these policy changes, and the resulting massive influx of illegal aliens, were not bumbling mistakes on the part of the Biden regime, but the clear intention of the policymakers who drafted these executive orders and, in my opinion, of the president himself.

Dr. O’Dell Owens, noted fertility doctor and former Hamilton County Coroner.

Renowned local health leader Dr. O’Dell Owens has died” was the headline in one local news outlet.

If you’re not from the Cincinnati area as I am, you likely do not know the name Dr. O’Dell Owens.  But in this area, he was a very well-known and admired individual.  The article just cited listed some of his titles: Hamilton County (Cincinnati) coroner, Cincinnati State Technical and Community College president, and Cincinnati Health Department medical director.

Personally, I never knew him or interacted with him at all.  My only knowledge of him comes from his media persona.  From my own observations, he seemed to be a sincere and decent fellow. I know of no scandal associated with his name.  From some of the coverage I’ve seen, he was a member of a local Baptist church.

His death on November 23 at the age of 74 has generated no small amount of coverage in the local newspapers and TV stations.  There is talk of naming the recently opened county coroner’s crime lab after him.  That seems reasonable enough, given that he was the county coroner. 

But then there’s this.  The county commissioner who wants to name the office after Owens stated one reason she wants to do this is because of Owens, “encouraging people during the pandemic to get vaccinated.” 

According to local radio station WVXU, “Owens planned to spend his retirement volunteering ‘to support community groups on the regional response to the COVID-19 pandemic,’ and even advised Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine on the state’s COVID response” Advising Gov. Mike DeWine on the Covid response is a dubious accomplishment to cite, as DeWine was a Covid tyrant.  While not as bad as some of the Democrat governors, his response was heavy-handed and did a great deal of damage to the personal liberty of all Ohioans and to the economy of the state.  If it were not for the action of the Ohio General Assembly, which passed a bill curtailing the emergency medical powers of the governor, a bill that was passed over DeWine’s veto, it’s hard to say when the Covid lockdown would have ended in Ohio.  It ended despite, not because of, the actions of Gov. DeWine.

According to his Wikipedia article, Owens’s role in advising DeWine concerned “equitable vaccine distribution.”  The likely meaning of this is that Owens worked to ensure vaccines were distributed to black Ohioans.  If so, this was not the blessing that Owens seemed to think it was.

Another article from a local TV station noted, “Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Owens was one of Cincinnati’s most vocal advocates for COVID-19 vaccination in the Black community.

There’s also this short video from June 2021 Owens made for PBS titled “Confidence in the Vaccine / Dr. Owens.” In it, Owens claims that he has confidence in the vaccine because it’s been under development since 1999 and that it’s been tested. Owens conceded that there was no long-term testing data, but he called the vaccine safe and effective anyway. 

What’s the sum of all this?  Dr. Owens, despite all his significant accomplishments, was a pusher of what is probably the deadliest medical treatment in all of history.  But not one of the many local stories on Dr. Owens made this point.  And the fact that not one news outlet coving this story saw fit to mention that Owens pushed the Covid jab tells you that we’re still very much in the propaganda matrix when it comes to Covid.
