Ben Sasse Wants to Make the US Senate Great Again (And I Could Not Agree More!)

US Senator Ben Sasse (R-Nebraska) is a consummate constitutionalist.

He does not do whatever President Trump wants, and he is not afraid to demand jealous safeguarding of the United States Senate and its institutions.



Indeed, the Framers of the United States Constitution never intended to the United States Senate to operate as an extension of the House of Representatives. The US Senate was never intended to be an extensive democratic chamber.

The US Senators were supposed to be elected by the legislatures, and they were supposed 

Make the Senate Great Again

To restore the world’s greatest deliberative body, we need to think big.

What would the Founding Fathers think of America if they came back to life? Their eyes would surely bug out first at our technology and wealth. But I suspect they’d also be stunned by the deformed structure of our government. The Congress they envisioned is all but dead. The Senate in particular is supposed to be the place where Americans hammer out our biggest challenges with debate. That hasn’t happened for decades—and the rot is bipartisan.

Many on the left think the problem is the filibuster, which requires a supermajority to end debate and enact most legislation. But ending the filibuster would allow political parties to change the direction of the country dramatically with a succession of shifting 51-49 votes. That’s a path to even more polarization and instability. The Senate’s culture needs dramatic change aimed at promoting debate, not ending it. Here are some ideas:

• Cut the cameras. Most of what happens in committee hearings isn’t oversight, it’s showmanship. Senators make speeches that get chopped up, shipped to home-state TV stations, and blasted across social media. They aren’t trying to learn from witnesses, uncover details, or improve legislation. They’re competing for sound bites.

There’s one notable exception: The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, the majority of whose work is done in secret. Without posturing for cameras, Republicans and Democrats cooperate on some of America’s most complicated and urgent problems. Other committees could follow their example, while keeping transparency by making transcripts and real-time audio available to the public.

• Abolish standing committees. The Senate is supposed to be the world’s greatest deliberative body, but it operates on about 20 permanent fiefdoms. Dividing legislative work is important, but there’s no corporation that would tackle its problems by creating 20 permanent committees and running every decision through them. The Senate should instead create temporary two-year committees, each devoted to making real progress on one or two big problems. Committees should draw power from their accomplishments, not based on which industries need to supplicate before the gavel.

• Pack the floor. Serious debate happens only if senators show up. Ninety-nine percent of the time you see a senator talking on the floor, he’s speaking to a chamber with somewhere between zero and two colleagues present. The Senate’s rules privilege the majority, which controls the agenda and floor time. Senators ought to be packed on the floor having real debates. We can do that by changing the rules to allow committees to control some floor time. Elections have consequences, so the majority leader should control the majority of the Senate’s time, but committees should be able to command specific times for specific debates.

• Live together. A lot of time is spent demonizing the opposition, but most senators can get along quite well. Sen. Brian Schatz of Hawaii is as liberal as the day is long, but he’s my friend. Senators should live, eat, and meet in dormitories when the Senate is in session. It’s hard to demonize people you spend time with every day.

• Cancel re-election. One of the biggest reasons Congress gives away its power to the executive branch is that it’s politically expedient for both parties to avoid the decisions that come from the work of legislating. Lawmakers are obsessed with staying in office, and one of the easiest ways to keep getting re-elected is by avoiding hard decisions. We ought to propose a constitutional amendment to limit every senator to one term, but we should double it from six years to 12. Senators who don’t have to worry about short-term popularity can work instead on long-term challenges.

If that’s a bridge too far, at least ban fundraising while the Senate is in session in Washington. It’s an everyday experience to sit down at a $2,000-a-plate lunch fundraiser and then run over to make committee votes. Lobbying is protected by the First Amendment, but it shouldn’t be the primary focus of senators when we’ve got work to do.

• Repeal the 17th Amendment. Ratified in 1913, it replaced the appointment of senators by state legislatures with direct election. Different states bring different solutions to the table, and that ought to be reflected in the Senate’s national debate. The old saying used to be that all politics is local, but today—thanks to the internet, 24/7 cable news and a cottage industry dedicated to political addiction—politics is polarized and national. That would change if state legislatures had direct control over who serves in the Senate.

• Sunset everything. For decades Pennsylvania Avenue has been a one-way street, as authority flowed from Congress to the executive branch. When the unelected bureaucracy gets power, it doesn’t let go. We ought to end that by having the Senate create a “super committee” dedicated to reviewing all such delegations of power over the past 80 years and then proposing legislation to sunset the authority of entire bureaucracies on a rolling basis. Does, say, the Health and Human Services Department ever answer for its aggressive regulatory lawmaking? Of course not. Sunset all its authority in 12 months and watch lawmakers start to make actual laws.

• Make a real budget. The power of the purse is Congress’s primary lever—and the area where Congress is most unserious. The budget process is completely broken, and every couple of months lawmakers are faced with a monumentally stupid decision: Shut the government down or spend 102% of what was spent last year, with no oversight. It’s an endless series of all-or-nothing brinkmanship fights—continuing resolutions, omnibus spending deals and debt-ceiling hikes. We ought to fix that with two-year budgeting that includes all federal spending, including on entitlements. We ought to end the distinction between appropriation and authorization. Legislation that authorizes federal action should also appropriate the money to pay for it.

These aren’t partisan proposals, because congressional dysfunction isn’t a partisan problem. Lawmakers—Republicans and Democrats—don’t make laws. Over years, Congress made the choice to shirk its duty and cede power to the executive branch. Recovery will be hard, but it’s time for Congress build some muscle and figure out how to serve the American people by doing our constitutionally mandated jobs again.

Mr. Sasse, a Republican, is a U.S. senator from Nebraska.

Here are my reflections on the above set of suggested reforms:

I agree with the vast majority of US Senator Ben Sasse's (R-Nebraska) suggested reforms.

The Senate’s culture needs dramatic change aimed at promoting debate, not ending it."

Agreed. Here are reforms that would restore the deliberative core of the US Senate:

1. Repeal the 17th Amendment. The Senate was designed to represent STATES, not individuals. Senators should not be elected by popular vote. The United States is not a democracy, although one chamber does indeed represent the more democratic impulse in the country: The House of Representatives

2. Cut the cameras. Hearings should be audio-recorded only (just like Supreme Court hearings), and transcripts can be provided afterwards. No more videos, no more playing to the cameras.

3. Abolish standing committees. YES! Every committee should be ad hoc (set up for a specific task, then decommissioned once the task is completed). Standing committees have allowed The Swamp to gain considerable power in Washington at the expense of the states and the people (cf. Ninth and Tenth Amendments)

4. "Pack the Floor" -- Senators need to show up and speak. Sasse points out that most US Senators speak on the floor to only one or two people. There is no real discussion or deliberation, just a lot of pontification and monologue. By extension, US Senators must be present when invoking a filibuster. They cannot "call in" to object to a legislative motion, and that alone suffices. Blue paper motions must also be scrapped. If a home state senator wants to block or delay a judicial or executive nominee, he needs to make the case to the entire body.

5. "Sunset everything", i.e. give regulatory or legislative action and commission assignments a 12-month time limit. There should be no bureaucratic process in place beyond one year. Every legislative action of such a caliber should have a required "sunset" clause. This reform from Senator Sasse is excellent.

6. I disagree with his call for term limits. No term limits for legislators. The best term limit is an election. Instead, we need to make it easier for every citizen to challenge incumbents. Enactment of recall for federal officials would be far more appropriate.

7. "Make a real budget ... We ought to end the distinction between appropriation and authorization. Legislation that authorizes federal action should also appropriate the money to pay for it." Yes. No more "all or nothing" budget bills which waste money on frivolous projects with no oversight.

The biggest reform needed, of course, is the full repeal of the 17th Amendment. Make America a Republic Again.

Horrific: California passes LGBT bill that removes “sex offender” label for adult-child homosexual sex

 

California passes LGBT bill that removes “sex offender” label for adult-child homosexual sex

Signed by Governor over objections of many Democrats

MassResistance fought hard to stop it

Analysis: Result of long-term capitulation on the issue by pro-family movement

September 17, 2020
ALT TEXT The California Assembly (all wearing masks) suddenly takes up SB145 on August 31 - the very last day of the legislative session.

A huge problem in society is teenage boys (and also girls) being seduced and lured into homosexuality by “gay” older youth and adults. Many anguished parents have shared their heart-breaking stories of that with us. The “chicken hawk” – a homosexual man who seduces boys – is part of the homosexual vocabulary. As far back as 1972, the homosexual movement called for the repeal of age of [sexual] consent laws.

As we reported last June, there was a frightening LGBT bill in the California Legislature, SB 145, that would remove the mandatory “sex offender” label for adult-child homosexual sex. The bill was filed in Jan. 2019 by Sen. Scott Weiner (D-San Francisco), who is openly “gay” and has been an aggressive LGBT advocate in the legislature.

ALT TEXT Openly “gay” State Senator Scott Wiener (left) and “friend” at a recent San Francisco Gay Pride Parade.

At the time of our previous report the bill had been stalled in the Assembly’s Appropriations Committee for over a year by the Committee’s chairman, Lorena Gonzalez (D-Chula Vista). It was assumed to be effectively killed, though MassResistance continued to organize Gonzalez’s local constituents to push her to keep it blocked.

But suddenly everything changed. On Aug. 20, 2020, the Appropriations Committee voted to approve SB 145 and move it forward. On Aug 31, the very last day of 2020 legislative session, both houses of the California legislature voted to pass it. On Sept. 11 it was signed into law by the Governor. (One pleasant surprise: Every Republican voted against it.)

During that time, MassResistance worked around the clock to stop the bill, marshalling citizens across the state to pressure their legislators. Some got meetings with staffers. Some MassResistance activists confronted legislators at town halls and other public events. After the bill passed the legislature, we worked with some Democrat legislators who opposed the bill to attempt to persuade the Governor to veto it. But the sudden momentum was too great, even though several left-wing Democrats besides Gonzalez were against the bill.

How did this happen? The bill had languished and seemed dead to most people who follow those things in California, then at the last minute took off like a rocket. Here are the two things that we noticed:

Legislators’ dishonest action

Assembly member. Lorena Gonzales, chairman of the Assembly Appropriations Committee, had sat on the bill for over a year.  Then on Aug. 20, 2020, she brought it up for a vote – likely under pressure from the leadership.

As the Bill 145 vote-tally page shows, it passed the Appropriations Committee by 10 to 6 with 2 abstentions. Since abstentions are considered “No” votes under California legislative rules, it was effectively a 10-8 vote.

But if you look carefully, three of the committee members who voted “Yes” to pass SB 145 out of Committee (Calderon, Eggman, and Eduardo Garcia) later voted “No” or abstained (both effectively a “No” vote) when it got to the Assembly floor for the final vote! Had those three voted the same way in the committee as they did on the Assembly floor, the bill would have died in committee.

Why did they do that? That way they could please their left-wing party bosses and the LGBT lobby by getting it out of committee, and they could still tell their constituents that they opposed it when the Assembly voted! (The leadership knew they had the votes to spare in the full Assembly.)

It’s a very corrupt process, one which allows lawmakers to make it seem as though they showed courage and integrity in voting against their party, when in fact they were going along with their policy agenda the whole time. We’ve contacted their offices for an “explanation,” but the three Assembly members and their staffs refuse to comment on it.

ALT TEXT The final Assembly vote was 41-18, with the rest of the 80-member body abstaining. But the margin is misleading. As soon as the leadership knew they had a majority, they allowed the other Democrats to vote any way they pleased, or absain.

SB 145’s opponents lose the argument

The rallying cry of the LGBT lobby was that bill SB 145 was simply to bring about equality – treating everyone the same.

Since 1944 in California, if an adult (age 18 or over) had heterosexual relations (i.e., vaginal sex) with a teenager (age 14-17) and the age difference between them is less than 10 years, then the adult has not been required to register as a sex offender – it was up to the judge’s discretion. But if the adult had homosexual relations (i.e., sodomy, oral sex) with a teenager, then he was required to be registered as a sex offender – the judge had no discretion.

SB 145 removed the requirement of being a registered sex offender if the adult had homosexual relations with the minor, and gave the judge the same discretion as with heterosexual sex.

The LGBT activists and the Democrat leadership argued that the previous difference in punishment was unfair, unequal, and discriminatory. This bill just made it the same for both. It was a powerful argument. Who could be against equality?

But in fact, it was unequal for a good reason. The law rightfully recognized the depraved and destructive character of homosexual sex (both physical and mental) and how it affects a child much more profoundly. When that original law was passed (in 1944) the legislature understood that very well.

But in 2020 virtually nobody (except MassResistance!) was willing to say that. They were afraid the Left might call them “homophobic.” So as a result, the arguments that were used against the bill were logically pretty weak.

Much of the time, the opposition to SB 145 seemed completely disjointed. Lorena Gonzalez – a liberal, progressive Democrat – spoke passionately against the bill during the Assembly debate. She started off by saying that she supported LGBT “equality” which this bill would provide. But then, speaking as the mother of a 14-year-old, she said she was very uncomfortable with adults having sex with young teenagers, and therefore was voting against it. It begs the question: If she’s so worried about children being exploited, why didn’t she file a different bill that made heterosexual sex with minors a mandatory sex offender listing? Her speech (and the similar speeches by other opponents) didn’t do much to dissuade any of the bill’s supporters.

ALT TEXT During the floor debate on SB145, Assembly member Lorena Gonzalez speaks against the bill.

The larger failure of the pro-family movement

If conservatives aren’t willing to speak out on this issue, we certainly can’t expect liberals to do so!

Let’s be honest. This is the result of a fear among pro-family people of opposing the concept of LGBT “equality” with heterosexuality and telling the truth about perverted behaviors. It has been predominant in mainstream conservative circles for many years.

We could tell story after story of pro-family activists around the country who will fight the “hetero” portion of Comprehensive Sex-Ed and other horrible programs in their schools, but won’t oppose (at least publicly) the “homo” part of it. They will even make it a point to say “No, we’re not ‘anti-gay.’ We’re just against ‘inappropriate’ sex-ed material.” It’s one of the reasons our side loses that battle so frequently. They’re selling out children’s well-being for their own political cover.

Of course, a huge part of the problem is that a frightening number of so-called pro-family conservatives (most of whom claim to be religious) actively accept the absurd LGBT “born that way” argument. As a result, they may be uncomfortable with the latest transgender madness, but they aren’t really opposed to the homosexual agenda targeting children.

Final reflection

In many ways, as we’ve discussed above, the mushy pro-family movement has become a major impediment to fighting and stopping this hideous agenda. This is not just in fighting the exploitation of children, but also the “gay marriage” issue, oppressive LGBT non-discrimination laws, transgender public restrooms, etc.

Too many pro-family groups avoided labeling SB 145 as what it apparently really was: a way to make it easier for homosexual adults to prey on vulnerable teenagers. This is what the LGBT movement has sought for decades – and has incrementally worked towards.

Most pro-family groups also misjudged the power of LGBT militancy in the California legislature. They did not believe that such a horrible bill would actually make it to the Governor’s desk – and be signed into law. So they didn’t put in the hard day-to-day lobbying work against it.

Too many family groups focus on creating relationships and persuading lawmakers and LGBT groups to stop pressing forward with the LGBT agenda, rather than confronting them outright that everything about the LGBT movement and its ideas are wrong. They are only focused on the policies that are pushing more offensive intrusions against children. They have all but given up on stopping the LGBT onslaught at its core. They still do not understand that there is no room for compromise or dialogue with LGBT activists and their supporters, whether in the major parties or interest groups around the country. Still, many pro-family lobbying groups think they can work out compromises to slow the spread of this dangerous agenda, when they should be working towards undermining the agenda completely.

Politicians need to be made to feel ashamed of supporting this horrible agenda, not celebrated for it. MassResistance will keep up this fight!

LGBT Golfer Displays Wet Bottom (Yet Doesn't Want to Be Treated Differently)

 The intersectionality cult has hit a new low.

The Human Hate Campaign (otherwise known as the Human Rights Campaign, promoting LGBT privileges), published a report about "Out" Asian athletes.

Two checks for the intersectionality box:

1. Gay

2. Asian

3. Anything we should add? Male? Female? Immigrant?

Here's one profile: Tadd Fujikawa. 


Notice how he flaunts his "gayness" with the six-colored logo on his hat.

Here's the first paragraph about himself on his professional website:

Fujikawa, a native of Hawaii, most recently made headlines being the first openly gay male professional golfer. He came to fame in 2006 when he qualified for the U.S. Open at Winged Foot, which made him the youngest ever to qualify at 15 years old. The next year he made the cut at the Sony Open in Hawaii, becoming the youngest player in 50 years to make the weekend in a PGA Tour event.

What do his sexual preferences have to do with playing golf? Can anyone answer this question for me? Why does it matter? Why do we need to know about this?

Consider what he writes at the bottom of his "About" page on his website:

In his coming out post, he wrote, “I can’t wait for the day we all can live without feeling like we’re different and excluded. A time when we can love the way we want to love and not be ashamed. We are all human and equal after all. So I dare you…spread love. Let’s do our part to make this world a better place.”

So, Fujikawa wants to spread love, and he wants to live life without feeling different or excluded.

Yet he insisted on sharing the following with the general viewing public:


So, we all get to see his butt, and we get to see that he was sweating. Seriously? And he calls this dampness "hot flashes." Really.

He wants people to treat him with respect, and he does not want to be treated differently, yet he insists on treating us to a picture of his rear shoved in our faces.

Why do we need to see this?

Afterthought

Homosexuals, especially homosexual activists, do not display very good judgment. They are more interested in promoting themselves and act out in very silly ways. It's almost as though they have not grown up.

Why would an adult insist on showing the world his wet pants, his wet buttocks, as though this will help for his bid that so-called LGBT people be treated normal, just like everyone else?

The behaviors are not normal. The ideology is not normal. The desperate need for self-promotion and public acceptance is not normal. What is going on here?

And once again, what does Fujikawa's sexual behavior (in reality, perversion) have to do with professional golf?

Unborn Black Lives Matter

 

Unborn Black Lives Matter Project Hits Major Cities

Columbus, OH – September 10, 2020 – When it comes to killing babies, no organization is worse than Planned Parenthood, which happens to be a dedicated ally and co-conspirator with the Black Lives Matter movement.  From its founding Planned Parenthood has used Black leaders – especially ministers and preachers – to sow the seeds of deadly abortion weeds within the African-American community. 


We are delivering this image on postcards, tow banners, and mobile billboards in predominantly Black neighborhoods in key cities where we’ll have courageous counselors on hand to pass out literature and speak with people about the tremendous harm abortion is wreaking on the Black community.

As you can see, we are NOT supporting Black Lives Matter; neither the movement nor the organization.  Rather we support all Black lives – born and unborn!  So, we designed our graphics to generate huge amounts of media coverage and make it clear that for the pro-abortion anarchists at Black Lives Matter – along with those at Planned Parenthood – there are hundreds of thousands of Black lives that DON’T matter to them; namely, all the unborn Black babies Planned Parenthood abortionists kill every year.
WILL YOU HELP US CHANGE HEARTS DURING THIS ELECTION SEASON? YOUR GIFT DELIVERS POSTCARDS, FUELS OUR BILLBOARD TRUCK, AND HELPS RENT OUR TOW BANNER!

Keep in mind the Unborn Black Lives Matter Project is only one way Created Equal is working with you to end our nation’s abortion holocaust.  In addition to this project we are about to launch both our "Road Trip for Life" project to college campuses and our VOTE ANTI-ABORTION CAMPAIGN to key cities and states.

You can give online HERE or send your check to: Created Equal, PO Box 360502, Columbus, OH 43236. Your gift is tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

You are a real blessing to Created Equal.  I value your partnership in our work more than I can express in words. 

For the born and the unborn,

Coming Out, Coming Home: Young Gay YouTube Star Leaves Homosexuality, Comes Out for Christ

 Lohanthony, aka Anthony Quintal was a Zoomer YouTuber who was quite a craze on social media.

The girls loved him, but that love would not take them very far. This boy was an out homosexual. Strangely enough, these kinds of YouTube profiles are getting lots of attention. Pretty sad, and quite shocking.

However, good news has emerged.

Now at 21 years old, Anthony has announced that he is no longer acting on his same-sex desires. He wants to live a celibate, life in Christ.

Of course, the gay-centered magazines and news sites are condemning his liberty in Christ.


            https://img.particlenews.com/image.php?url=4azUnX_0WjsA5Ce00

Newsbreak reports:

Fans are heartbroken after YouTuber Lohanthony posted a video preaching Christianity and seemingly denouncing homosexuality.

 In the video, Lohanthony, whose real name is Anthony Quintal, says he was “decade long search for gay love that would ultimately end with disappointment … a void, which was later filled by Jesus Christ.” The video is in stark contrast to the ones he used to post, leaving many to speculate whether he is a victim of conversion therapy.

At the beginning of the almost 42-minute-long video, titled “Jesus delivers – Surviving Sexuality,” Lohanthony asks for the “spirit of Jesus” to guide him because it’s “the hardest video” he’s ever had to make. He reveals the sexual assault and trauma he’s suffered, including being sexually abused by an “older boy” when he was a child.

This part is essential for people to see. Like many who struggle with same-sex temptations, he was abused as a kid, abused by an older boy. This is a very traumatic experience, but he had the courage to share this very painful event in his past.

 Lohanthony devolves into seemingly denouncing homosexuality, saying that through the pursuance of his same-sex attraction, he was “trying to fit a circle into a square, trying to find God’s love in all these other things.”

“It’s no coincidence that through pursuing my same-sex attraction, I was also addicted to alcohol, I was also addicted to weed, I was also trying hallucinogenics, I was also addicted to money, I was addicted to views, I was addicted to attention,” he adds.

He says that he will now be practicing “Christian celibacy.”

“The holy spirit received me fully and changed me entirely into who God originally intended me to be: free from sin, held by forgiveness, and guided by his pure goodness, guided by God’s love,” he says.

The video was eventually re-uploaded to Twitter, where it alarmed former fans. “This lohanthony situation is horrifying i hope hes okay,” one user wrote.

“This lohanthony situation is quite sad actually,” another said.

What's really sad is that Anthony is facing so much abuse for speaking the truth and breaking out of behaviors and ideas that are destructive and dishonest. This experience is all too common for men and women, for boys and girls who leave the homosexual lifestyle.

Many began questioning if Lohanthony went through conversion therapy. “Okay i know nobody cares but this lohanthony situation is making me bawl. i grew up watching him & this whole situation is awful. conversion therapy is mentally & physically abusive. the fact that he had to go through that. i feel so bad for him. to hear a person that helped me come to terms with my sexuality when i was very young hurts. i really hope he gets the help he needs,” one user wrote.

For the record, it's not "conversion therapy", as though there is an effort by a therapist or counselor to get someone to change from one essential status to another. The normal, healthy status for individuals is to have desires for the opposite sex, or to refrain from sex.

Some took issue with him seemingly “linking homosexuality to a consequence of sexual abuse.”

Others felt that Lohanthony “returning” to the mainstream to preach Christianity and seemingly denounce homosexuality is too shocking for even 2020. “Lohanthony preaching conversion therapy and telling us homosexuality is wrong was not on my 2020 bingo card,” one wrote.

Ironically, Queerty News reported on Anthony's Coming Home announcement, and as expected they refused to recognize the real issues behind individual's homosexual desires:

He opens up about his struggles with drug and alcohol addiction, and reveals that he was sexually abused by an “older boy” when he was a child.

But then he takes a troubling turn by connecting his substance abuse and other addictive tendencies to pursuing his “same-sex attraction,” giving fans cause for concern that he’s undergone some form of religious ex-gay therapy.

 “It’s no coincidence that through pursuing my same-sex attraction, I was also addicted to alcohol, I was also addicted to weed, I was also trying hallucinogenics, I was also addicted to money, I was addicted to views, I was addicted to attention.”

Lo and Behold, the gay lifestyle is well, not so "gay".

Final Reflection

No one should be shocked by the growing outpouring of God's spirit and His revelation. No one should be shocked that more young people are abandoning the pervere, empty lifestyle of homosexuality, transgenderism, and like destructive behaviors.

Once should not be surprised that this story received very little attention. No one wants the news to get out that more young people are giving up the homosexual lifestyle, acknowledging that much of the whole way of life is actually quite painful, based on lies and unresolved hurts.

This is great news for many people. Young people who have been abused need to know that they have nothing to be ashamed of. If as a result of such abuse, they find that natural affections for the opposite sex are missing, and they have strong desires for the same sex, they can rest assured that there is hope.

They do not have to live in shame. They can come out, and come home, and they are coming out for Christ.

Rule Britannia (Its History, Its Legacy)

 Dear Friends,  

One of our group Patricia Jelbert who was actually in Prague on the day Russian tanks rolled into Czechoslovakia in 1968, sent me an  explanation of the song "Rule Britannia". 

This is what Patricia sent me:

The BBC tried to “de-voice” the Rule Britannia hymn on the basis, apparently, of allusions to this countries slavery history. Of course, using Covid19 as an additional cover-story justification.

Slavery, YES indeed, but brother, didn’t the BBC get it wrong as to “WHICH” slavery….

In the 17th century the seas around Britain were ruled by North African Muslim Slavers. They stopped British ships and carried off the crews to be sold as slaves in Algiers and Tripoli.

The situation became so bad that fishermen from Devon and Cornwall wouldn’t put out to sea in case they were captured by North African Slave Traders.

Between 1609 and 1616, 466 British ships were captured by Slave Traders in the Bristol channel, English Channel, Irish Sea and North Atlantic, and the crews were sold into slavery.

In 1625 a raiding party landed at Mount’s Bay in Cornwall and 60 people who had taken refuge in a local church were dragged out, loaded up and taken off to Africa to be sold as slaves.

On 12 August 1625 the Mayor of Plymouth wrote to London for military help after 27 ships had been seized by North African Muslim Slave Traders in just 10 days.  In 1645, 240 people were seized as slaves in Cornwall.

The situation only began to change after the end of the English Civil War when the Navy (future Royal Navy) started building up under Oliver Cromwell. By 1700, North African Slavers generally knew better than to bother the British Isles in the search for slaves because of the Royal Navy.

It was a triumph that Britain was finally able to control its own coastal waters. And it was in commemoration of this that in 1740, James Thompson wrote ‘Rule Britannia’.  It is a hymn of thanksgiving rather than a proclamation of aggressive Nationalism.


In the light of our government about to impose same sex marriage on the people of the Cayman Islands, a deeply Christian population of only 68000 souls,


I found the leading of singing of the Rule Britannia by the gross bisexual mezzo soprano, Jamie Barton , on the last night of last year's proms, macabre. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sDtyJyidhlc

Just prior to this the BBC showed her being interviewed by a drag queen, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXsVThTHpDE

I can only assume that the BBC and the Promenaders were both LGBT  and Palestinian supporters and would fully support the Britannia invading  the Caymanian islands with gay cruise ships . Britain is neither Great anymore, nor does it rule the seas - not in any shape or form!

So I say put an end to this grotesque mockery of a real love for our nation and that of other Commonwealth countries on whom her majesty's government  is going to impose imperial LGBT human rights.

UK MassResistance Denounces Abuse of Power, Forced Imposition of False Marriage on the Cayman Islands

Dear Friends,

There has recently been a stirring in the patriotic breasts of the British over the removal of the song, “ Rule, Britannia! Britannia, rule the waves!” from being sung at the end of this year’s last night of the Proms at the Albert Hall, London.  The song was written when Britain, as a powerful colonial and sea power was becoming the largest empire that the World had ever seen. This was achieved on the backs of millions of Africans shipped to the Caribbean as part of the slave trade.



One of these former slave colonies, The Cayman Islands, set in the sapphire blue waters of Caribbean, has today a mainly Christian, Protestant population of 68000. Its motto is part of Psalm 24: “The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness, The world and those who dwell therein. For He has founded it upon the seas, And established it upon the waters.".  They have remained a British overseas territory, and come under direct British rule, whilst Jamaica, its neighbour, also a former slave colony, gained independence in 1962.

During her coronation on the 4th of June 1953, Queen Elizabeth II vowed to God that she would uphold the Protestant faith and protect the traditions and customs of the Commonwealth countries.
However, the strong Christian traditions of these islands have been threatened ever since the Queen allowed herself to be renamed the ‘Kaleidoscope Queen’ in 2012 by the  Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow, the President of the Kaleidoscope Trust [1], an organisation dedicated to infiltrate and subvert Commonwealth countries with queer philosophy [2]. This was followed in 2013 by her signing the Commonwealth Charter, forcing homosexuality and gay rights on 54 commonwealth countries - on pain of having their financial aid cut. At the time, Shirley Richards, a Jamaican Christian objected bitterly to this new form of colonialism [3]

Shortly after, the queen gave her royal assent to same marriage. https://youtu.be/zBy3hEpRNm8?t=802 [4] and in 2018 made Prince Harry and Megan Markle the Foreign and Commonwealth youth ambassadors so as to promote LGBT rights around the World 
Homosexuality, with pressure from Britain and the European Union Court of Human Rights - to which Britain is still bound  in spite of Brexit -  was only legalised in the Cayman Islands in 2000, even though it had been made legal in the UK since 1967. The relaxation in the law in both the UK and the Cayman Islands was initially conditional on its being practised in private and only between two men over the age of 21. It was tolerated but not given public acceptance, let alone celebratory status.

It took forty six years, from 1967 to 2013 for same sex marriage to be legalised in the UK, during which time, many incremental pieces of legislation, stealthily whittled away any legal opposition to the gay agenda, which is to achieve total world domination. In 2013 those pushing for same sex marriage, argued that this  was not only superior and would strengthen the ailing institution of marriage but would in time make it obsolete.  Boris Johnson Prime Minister supports this argument and has said,“…marriage… has been here since before the Stone Age, and now it needs to move beyond the Stone Age.”

Due I believe to the grace of God, the Caymanians have managed to avoid all the pink legislation imposed on the UK over past decades. However, two lesbians, Vickie Bodden Bush, her partner Chantelle Day briefly in March 2019 managed the get the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands to award their relationship with marital status,. But in November of the same year, the Court of Appeal were instructed to annul the marriage on the grounds that the Cayman Legislative Assembly had not authorised let alone legislated for it.  But it did argue that Bush and Day had a right to have their relationship legally protected and a right to family life and would therefore push for a Civil or Domestic partnership Bill in the new year.  But on the 29th July the opposition in the Assembly, led by a Christian MLA (Member of the Legislative Assembly), Anthony Eden, narrowly voted down the proposal.

Bush, Day and their queer allies appealed then directly to the privy council, the High court in London and Baroness Sugg, the UK Minister for Sustainable Development and the Overseas Territories. She wrote to British governor the Cayman island, Mr Roper, advising him to step in and exercise his powers and have the bill passed.  Should the Cayman Islands Legislature fail to act to rectify the situation, the UK government would exercise direct power and force the Caymanians to embrace same Domestic Partnerships.

What will happen therefore in the Cayman Island is that there will be no incremental staged legislation added to that of 2000, but a fast forward, as in a time machine, from legalisation of homosexuality  to same sex marriage. But this will not be end of it, for as the gays and their useful idiot allies often say, “There is so much more to do.”

Homosexual, Sir Adrian Fulford, High Court Judge, Senior Presiding Judge for England and Wales and member of the Privy Council, was quoted in Pink News as saying, “Pink Law will cease to be an anomaly but rather the shape of things to come”.  

As soon as same sex marriage is allowed - due to its position in the Caribbean - the Cayman islands will not only experience earthquakes and hurricanes but attract a tsunami of filth from gay cruise ships, searching for young flesh, followed by a raft of social and spiritual devastation. 

For Vickie Bodden Bush, her partner Chantelle Day and their allies in Cayman government appealing to the British Foreign Office and the British courts just so they can be like all the other Western nations, will be inviting Colonialism and sexual slavery to be imposed on the islands.  

So let us return to the last night of the Proms, at the Albert Hall, London, last year, 2019, where the bisexual mezzo-soprano, Jamie Barton led the audience in singing Rule Britannia. Prior to this she had been interviewed by a drag queen. Dinah Lux RuPaul's Drag Race UK Ambassador [5], When Jamie Barton sang this last song, “Rule Britannia! Britannia rule the waves. Britons never, never, never shall be slaves”she unfurled the rainbow flag , amid shouts of acclaim from the Promenaders  [6].

Britain is no longer “Great”, neither does it rule the waves nor is it a land of hope of glory. Britain like many other nations before them has followed the example of Sodom and become slaves of sexual perversion. Let us pray that the Caymanians will indeed, take to the lifeboats and abandon HMS Britain before it sinks beneath the waves, with the ship’s band playing  [7]
