The Facist - Communist police state Gestapo FBI are the enemies of Americans!
[Editor's note: This story originally was published by LeoHohmann.com.]
An FBI SWAT team raided the home of an activist mother of four in Colorado on Tuesday, Nov. 16, knocking down her door, bursting into the house with guns and handcuffing her while she was homeschooling her children.
This is the first known case of the federal government making good on its promise to not only intimidate but actually carry out a raid on a mom who was involved in her local school board politics, said Brannon Howse, who interviewed Sherronna Bishop at Lindell TV Wednesday night.
The U.S. Department of Justice and Attorney General Merrick Garland issued an Oct. 4 memorandum directing federal, state and local law enforcement to look for parents to prosecute nationwide who may have made “threats” and made “harassing” phone calls to school board members nationwide, equating such parents to domestic terrorists.

UPDATE, Nov. 22, 2021: This story has been updated to note that following its publication, a Fox News source with knowledge of the situation said the network had no intentions of renewing Hayes and Goldberg's contracts when they expired in 2022. This story and its headlines remain as published.
Calling a Tucker Carlson documentary on January's Capitol incursion the last straw, two Fox News contributors are walking away from the network.
Jonah Goldberg and Steve Hayes announced their divorce from Fox on Sunday in a blog post on The Dispatch, a website they created to promote their brand of conservatism.
In a comment to The New York Times, Carlson called their resignations “great news.”
“Our viewers will be grateful,” he said.
Carlson’s documentary “Patriot Purge” was the catalyst for leaving Fox after 12 years, Goldberg and Hayes said in the post.

The Last Confessions of E. Howard Hunt
What secrets do they hold? researchers demand sealed files about JFK assassination be made public on eve of fiftieth anniversary
Even fifty years after JFK's assassination there are still documents related to his death that have not been released to the public.
Rolling Stone | April 5th Edition
He was the ultimate keeper of secrets, lurking in the shadows of American history. He toppled banana republics, planned the Bay of Pigs invasion and led the Watergate break-in. Now he would reveal what he'd always kept hidden: who killed JFK
>> Who assassinated JFK? The conversation continues in our politics blog, National Affairs Daily .
Once, when the old spymaster thought he was dying, his eldest son came to visit him at his home in Miami. Long past were his years of heroic service to the country. In the CIA, he'd helped mastermind the violent removal of a duly elected leftist president in Guatemala and assisted in subterfuges that led to the murder of Che Guevara. Diminished too were the old bad memories, of the Bay of Pigs debacle that derailed his CIA career for good, of the Watergate Hotel fiasco, of his first wife's death, of thirty-three months in U.S. prisons -- of, in fact, a furious lifetime mainly of failure, disappointment and pain. But his firstborn son -- he named him St. John; Saint, for short -- was by his side now. And he still had a secret or two left to share before it was all over.
They were in the living room, him in his wheelchair, watching Fox News at full volume, because his hearing had failed too. After a while, he had St. John wheel him into his bedroom and hoist him onto his bed. It smelled foul in there; he was incontinent; a few bottles of urine under the bed needed to be emptied; but he was beyond caring. He asked St. John to get him a diet root beer, a pad of paper and a pen. But now, in August 2003, propped up in his sickbed, paper on his lap, pen in hand and son sitting next to him, he began to write down the names of men who had indeed participated in a plot to kill the president. He had lied during those two federal investigations. He knew something after all. He told St. John about his own involvement, too. It was explosive stuff, with the potential to reconfigure the JFK-assassination-theory landscape. And then he got better and went on to live for four more years.
That December, Hunt's wife, Dorothy, carrying $10,000 in $100 bills, was killed in a plane crash, foul play suspected but never proved. "She got on that plane willingly and lovingly, because that's the kind of woman she was," the younger Hunt says. "They had lots of marital problems, but when it came down to it, she had his back, and she could hang in there with the big dogs. She was really pissed at Nixon, Liddy, all those guys, and she was saying, 'We're not going to let them hang you out to dry. We're going to get them. Those motherfuckers are going to pay.' So I've never held what happened against him. I had bitterness and resentment, but I always knew he did what he had to do given the circumstances."
Two years later, impeachment imminent, Nixon resigned his presidency. And in 1973, E. Howard Hunt, the man who had unwittingly set all these events in motion, pleaded guilty and ultimately spent thirty-three months in prison. "I cannot escape feeling," he said at the time, "that the country I have served for my entire life and which directed me to carry out the Watergate entry is punishing me for doing the very things it trained and directed me to do."
After his release, Hunt moved to Miami, where he remarried, had two more children and spent three decades living a quiet, unexceptional life, steadfastly refusing to talk about Watergate, much less the Kennedy assassination. His connection to the JFK assassination came about almost serendipitously, when in 1974 a researcher stumbled across a photo of three tramps standing in Dallas' Dealey Plaza. It was taken on November 22nd, 1963, the day of Kennedy's shooting, and one of the tramps looked pretty much like E. Howard. In early inquiries, official and otherwise, he always denied any involvement. In later years, he'd offer a curt "No comment." Not surprisingly, those things he wrote down about JFK's death and gave to his eldest son don't make an appearance in the book, at least not in any definitive way. E. Howard had apparently decided to take them to the grave. But St. John still has the memo -- "It has all this stuff in it," he says, "the chain of command, names, people, places, dates. He wrote it out to me directly, in his own handwriting, starting with the initials 'LBJ' " -- and he's decided it's time his father's last secrets finally see some light, for better or for worse.
Italy's enchanting forests: Spellbinding images show the beauty of the country's stunning woodlands throughout the seasons
Italy is best known for its picture-perfect cities, stunning lakes, incredible mountains and beautiful coastline. But its fairy tale-like forests are just as spellbinding- as these jaw-dropping images show. They were all snapped in enchanting woodland areas across Italy throughout the seasons and entered into the 2019 Experience Forests photo contest run by the Italian branch of the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC).
A former CIA director withheld information about President John F Kennedy's assassination, according to declassified agency reports.
The CIA reports, which were declassified last fall, claim that then-agency head John McCone and other top officials were part of a 'benign cover-up' surrounding the assassination of Kennedy in November 1963.
The report's author, CIA historian David Robarge, claims McCone withheld information to keep the Warren Commission focused on what the agency believed to by the 'best truth… that Lee Harvey Oswald, for as yet undetermined motives, had acted alone,' according to Politico.
McCone and others were 'complicit' in keeping 'incendiary' information from the Warren Commission, a group established in the days after Kennedy's assassination by President Lyndon B Johnson to investigate the incident.
The investigators were officially known at the President's Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy.
McCone, who was appointed by Kennedy, died in 1991. His testimony in front of the commission, including Chief Justice Earl Warren, was considered vital in finding out what led to Kennedy's death.
The former CIA head concluded in his assessment that Oswald, a former Marine, was a 'lone gunman' who acted on his own.
The Warren Commission's final report - after a year-long investigation that included testimony from hundreds of other witnesses - was consistent with McCone's assessment.

'I was blacklisted': Native American actress who rejected Marlon Brando's Oscars award on his behalf reveals she never worked again in Hollywood and was abandoned by The Godfather actor
Marlon Brando, pictured, had been awarded an Oscar in 1973 which he refused. He asked Sacheen Littlefeather, pictured, to go to Hollywood to refuse the award on his behalf. But while the legendary actor was delighted by her performance, Littlefeather, a White Mountain Apache who had appeared in B-movies and on TV, never worked in the industry again.
Remember the Beast of Europe is rising. Jesus warned us of this in His Bible! A revised Roman Empire is forming! The Pope will be the spiritual head and the antichrist will be the governmental head. The two may be the same person eventually! But the Bible talks about TWO Leaders, not one. The BEAST and the False Prophet.
Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming.
and also: He replied: “Watch out that you are not deceived. For many will come in My name, claiming, ‘I am He,’ and, ‘The time is near.’ Do not follow them.
Let me be clear. Despite every lie you have heard and/or believed, there's nothing normal nor natural about the sexually deviant practice of homosexuality. The so-called "lgbtq" assemblage of sexual amoral deviancy is as unnatural, unhealthy and abnormal as an unemptied chamber pot at the kitchen table.
I've been ahead of the curve in warning about the social decline in America; and with every warning came assertions by demonic minions mocking me and calling me names.
May 30, 2013, a front group for People for the America Way called Media Matters, both of which are neo-Leninist groups committed to subversion of all truth and morality through demonic agitprop and intimidation, lashed out at me. Satan had to do his best to downplay my truth, and as usual he chose them to attempt same. I'd written in a syndicated op-ed, "Let the homosexuals have the Boy Scouts."
I wrote: "It's not personal – it's a choice, and I choose not to participate in and/or support the activities of the perverse. It doesn't matter who disagrees." They attacked and attempted to belittle me because I "warned that boys would be brainwashed into accepting homosexuality and that boys would be coerced into homosexual behavior [in no small part] because of their hormones."
When I wrote my column "Do you want your child to be a homosexual?" (April 19, 2005), the proponents of immorality and debaucherous amoral behavior inherent in godless society called me names. They were particularly upset because I wrote:
Archaeologists digging in southern Israel may have found the name of Jerubbaal, scourge of the Midianites, on a broken fragment of a Judges-era clay pot.
The inscription in primitive alphabetic writing from the time of the biblical Judges was found in Khirbat er-Ra’i, near Kiryat Gat in southern Israel. The extremely rare inscription, written in ink on a fragment of clay pot, apparently bears the name “Jerubbaal.” AKA Gideon...... Read on
Whatever else the pot may have said is lost to the mists of time, but that is a name known from the biblical book of Judges and the inscription is roughly from the time of the judges – about 3,100 years ago, the Israel Antiquities Authority reported on Monday. The coincidence is intriguing.
The shard with the rare ancient writing was found in a subterranean storage pit that had been lined with stones, the IAA says. The vessel was quite small, with a capacity of about a liter (a quarter of a gallon). The archaeologists therefore speculate that it held a precious liquid, such as a perfume or medical concoction, and that it may have belonged to a man named Jerubbaal, making it Jerubbaal’s pot.
Khirbat er-Ra’i is being excavated under the direction of Prof. Yossi Garfinkel of the Hebrew University, Sa’ar Ganor at the Israel Antiquities Authority, and Dr. Kyle Keimer and Dr. Gil Davis of Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia.

The name was written in an ancient alphabetic script, which derived from the earliest alphabetic script known (as opposed to cuneiform or hieroglyphics), which had apparently been invented by Canaanite merchants or slaves working in or with ancient Egypt around 4,000 years ago, during the Middle Bronze Age. The theory is that they invented phonetic letters because learning to write in hieroglyphics in adulthood was too onerous.
Very few inscriptions from such distant reaches of history have been found, but a handful exist from the Late Bronze Age – mostly from the town of Lachish, a mere 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) from Khirbat el Ra’i.
The writing was deciphered by epigraphic expert Christopher Rollston of George Washington University, who discerned the letters yod (albeit broken at the top), resh, beit, ayin, lamed – YRBA’L, i.e., Jerubbaal. The original inscription had been longer but is lost, the archaeologists surmise.

As for who Jerubbaal may have been remains unclear - he could have been anybody. But based on timing and location, the archaeologists surmise that he may have been none other than the biblical figure Gideon (also known as Jerubbaal), son of Joash the Abiezrite, whose activities are described at length in the book of Judges.

It bears adding that inscriptions from the period of the judges, 3,100 years ago, are extremely rare. This is the first time, the archaeologists say, that the name Jerubbaal has been found in an archaeological context. It also bears adding that the inscription was in Canaanite script and it is possible that Jerubbaal the putative owner of the pot was, simply, a Canaanite.
Anyway, the biblical story (Judges 6) tells of an angel joining Gideon beneath a terebinth tree owned by his father, Joash. Gideon presses the angel over the Lord’s forsaking the people of Israel and abandoning them to the rule of Midianites. The angel explains that the Lord wants Gideon to save Israel from the Midianites. The man demurred that he was the least significant person in his family, which belonged to the least significant clan, Manasseh, but was assured that the Lord would be with him “and thou shalt smite the Midianites as one man.”
Gideon makes an offering of meat and bread to the Lord, who accepts it. And that night, the Lord tells him:
“Take thy father’s young bullock, even the second bullock of seven years old, and throw down the altar of Baal that thy father hath, and cut down the grove that is by it” (Judges 6:25; grove being translated by some as “Asherah” – figurine, wooden image, Asherah pole and more).
And that, Gideon did, anecdotally burning the bull as an offering using the wood of the figurine. The infuriated townspeople demanded Gideon’s head, but Joash suggested that Baal be left to defend himself – which, as we know, did not happen.
“Therefore on that day he was called Jerubbaal, saying: Let Baal contend against him, because he hath broken down his altar" (Judges 6:32).
This, then, is the putative Jerubbaal. Whether the pot belonged to him, we cannot know, but it is an intriguing theory.
Sa'ar Ganor of the Israel Antiquities Authority tends to the theory that it did, on the grounds of his interpretation that the syllables "Jeru" stem from the ancient root of "rav" in the sense of "fight" (not rabbi); and who did he fight? Baal.
"He broke Baal's altar," Ganor points out, according to the biblical narrative. Or alternatively - it could be interpreted as "Baal will judge him," which obviously did not happen.
