The latest example of Leftist using children for their ends starred 16-year-old Swedish social media sensation, Greta Thunberg. Her performance at the U.N. was highly emotional and generated much controversy, though it was also notable for the lack of facts, as is typical of all advocacy for the fairy tale of “man-made climate change.”
Some very recent revelations of actions within two mainstream Protestant church denominations are manifesting levels of idolatry and impurity which are unprecedented and extremely disturbing but are also unfortunately not unexpected. They are but the latest logical extensions of the philosophy the Leftchurch has been operating under for many decades.
This author has been ardently pro-life for about 40 years or so. Along the way, I have participated in some protests by marching with thousands and in others by praying alone in front of Planned Parenthood clinics, as well as helping establish Crisis Pregnancy Care centers in two communities. During this time, I have also followed the antics and proposals of the “pro-choice” crowd closely and written much about the evil nature of the “pro-choice” philosophy. Earlier this year the vile doctrine of the Left plumbed the depths of evil to the very bottom by politicians in New York and Virginia promoting killing the baby up to, and even beyond, leaving the womb.

A very revealing transcript from an internal “town hall” meeting at the New York Times was reported on in the Friday, August 16th, 2019 issue of Newsbusters online. The transcript reveals two Leftist principles combining to become a new and alarming era in the history of the Times and perhaps in mainstream journalism as well.
The recent mass shootings in El Paso, TX, and Dayton, Ohio this past weekend have once again turned the political spotlight on the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The Left always has its attacks primed for these eventualities, and as usual, their arguments are forceful demonstrations of folly.
The Left has always been a movement which sought power to obtain their warped view of the ‘greater good.’ Moreover, that view has always trended toward Socialism in one variety or another. Leftists search for power is through both cultural and political avenues. For the better portion of the last 60 years, the Left has used the public education system at all levels toward gaining influence and control in both.
