“History doesn’t repeat itself, but it often rhymes,” Mark Twain observed. Joe Biden’s rebranding of Easter Sunday as the Transgender Day of Visibility can be understood as part of a long line of efforts to replace a religious observance with state-sponsored ersatz. 

NOW, THEREFORE, I, JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR., President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim March 31, 2024, as Transgender Day of Visibility.  I call upon all Americans to join us in lifting up the lives and voices of transgender people throughout our Nation and to work toward eliminating violence and discrimination based on gender identity.

These ersatz systems could take the form of state-sponsored atheism, state-mandated religion or even a completely invented replacement cult, like the French Revolution’s Cult of Reason. What explains this secular obsession with religion? Henry Kissinger pointed out that the two most powerful forces in history are the Conqueror and the Prophet. “The Middle East has been the chrysalis of three of the world’s great religions. From its stern landscape have issued conquerors and prophets holding aloft banners of universal aspirations. Across its seemingly limitless horizons, empires have been established and fallen; absolute rulers have proclaimed themselves the embodiment of all power, only to disappear as if they had been mirages.”

From the historical perspective, there nothing more interesting to “secular” government than religion. China, for example, is officially atheist but you may join any one of 5 registered faiths. It is sort of like buying a gun. Clearly religion is dangerous. While secular ideologues often say that “religion is based on fear” and empty superstition, they are obviously afraid of religion and it is the first thing they suppress. I call this the “ghost problem.” “God? I don’t believe in no God,” we say with our eyes flitting from side to side. Then how comes you is skeered? The ghost haunts us notwithstanding.

Conquerors and Prophets are among the two most powerful forces in history. The principle difference between the two is the time scale of their message. Conquerors live the lifespan of empires while Prophets exist on the scale of civilizations.Two thousand years later the Conqueror still fears the empty tomb.

Happy Easter.

Confirmed: Minority Voters Shifting to GOP in Large Numbers

Confirmed: Minority Voters Shifting to GOP in Large Numbers

LTP News Sharing:

Financial Times columnist and chief data reporter John Burn-Murdoch has been crunching the numbers on the 2024 vote and has reached some startling conclusions.

We’ve known for years that the black and Hispanic vote has been trending more Republican. But as the Democrats’ share of the white vote shrinks and the GOP minority support increases, Democrats find themselves in dire straits.

Burn-Murdoch also points out that “identity politics” is losing its electoral potency, further eroding and narrowing the Democrats’ path to victory.

Financial Times:

Last week, a New York Times poll showed President Joe Biden leading Donald Trump by just 56 points to 44 among non-white Americans, a group he won by almost 50 points when the two men last fought it out for the White House in 2020. As things stand, the Democrats are going backwards faster with voters of colour than any other demographic.

The election of 1960 saw the last racial realignment in America. Black people had been loyal Republican voters since Reconstruction. This is not surprising considering that the Democrats were the party of the Klu Klux Klan. 

But when Martin Luther King was jailed in late October 1960 for supporting some young civil rights advocates in Georgia, John F. Kennedy saw political opportunity where Nixon feared consequences. JFK called King’s wife Coretta to express his support and tell her she was thinking of her and her family.

That simple act galvanized the black community, and for the first time, a Democrat won a majority of the black vote.

Today, the racial realignment has destroyed the Democrats’ dream of a permanent Democratic majority in Washington. 

Why is this happening? Minorities have not suddenly fallen in love with Republicans. But, as with all things in American politics, time is the great equalizer.

Part of this is due to fading memories and weakening ties. Black Americans who lived through the civil rights era still support the party at very high levels, but younger generations are wavering. There’s also the weakening correlation between income and voter choice in US politics. The image of the GOP as the party of wealthy country club elites is dimming, opening the door to working- and middle-class voters of all ethnicities.

More ominous for the Democrats is a less widely understood dynamic: many of America’s non-white voters have long held much more conservative views than their voting patterns would suggest. The migration we’re seeing today is not so much natural Democrats becoming disillusioned but natural Republicans realizing they’ve been voting for the wrong party.

 In a way, black and Hispanic voting trends match those of immigrants who, by the third generation, have lost all fealty to the political party of their parents. For minorities, the touchstones of their struggling past are either a distant memory or never lived by younger generations. They have, to varying degrees, embraced the American dream.

With more affluence comes a recognition to elect people who will protect what they’ve achieved. There is also a strong element of religious faith that undergirds many minority communities and Democrats aren’t even bothering to give lip service to people of faith anymore.

In hindsight, the realignment appeared inevitable. Where it goes from here is anyone’s guess.

Black Conservatives: “Lift Every Voice and Sing” Should Never Replace the National Anthem

Black Conservatives: “Lift Every Voice and Sing” Should Never Replace the National Anthem

LTP News Sharing:

In advance of Super Bowl LVIII this weekend, ambassadors with the Project 21 black leadership network are voicing their thoughts about Andra Day performing “Lift Every Voice and Sing” — often referred to as the “Black National Anthem” — during the Super Bowl pregame celebration.

Donna Jackson

Donna Jackson

Donna Jackson, Project 21 Director of Membership Development:

If the goal was to divide us, the NFL’s decision to include the singing of “Lift Every Voice and Sing” at the Super Bowl missed the mark. “Lift Every Voice and Sing” was written by James Weldon Johnson for the celebration of Abraham Lincoln’s birthday on February 12, 1900.

Lincoln was a conservative, and no doubt Johnson was inspired by the bravery and courage Lincoln showed in making this country into a great nation. Lincoln refused to allow our great country to become a divided nation, and today that goal is more important than ever. During the Super Bowl, this song should cause us to reflect on the sacrifices Lincoln made to keep these United States as one nation, under God, with liberty and justice for ALL.

Michael Austin

Michael Austin

Michael Austin, Project 21 Ambassador:

“Lift Every Voice and Sing” once served as a reminder to former slaves to show gratitude and faith to God for their freedom, but its inclusion in the Super Bowl 120 years later is less of a strategic move and more of a desperate Hail Mary to exploitation.

The NFL is shamelessly following the leftist playbook, shaming Americans for crimes they didn’t commit and victimizing Americans for injustices they never suffered. It’s a divisive play, where the only trophy hoisted will be an award of resentment and division instead of a celebration of America and a thrilling game we deserve to see.

AK Kamara

AK Kamara

AK Kamara, Project 21 Ambassador:

The NFL has once again bowed to the pressure of Marxist racial identitarians. The “Black National Anthem” will be performed by Andra Day during the Super Bowl 58 pregame broadcast.

“Lift Every Voice and Sing” is a spiritually deep and powerful hymnal song. FULL STOP. It is NOT the “Black National Anthem.” Nations have national anthems, whereas ethnic and racial groups do not.

Performing this song as the “Black National Anthem” destroys the true beauty, meaning and power of the song. The “Black National Anthem” narrative foments racial divides and animosity.

Maybe every person opposed to this divisive racial narrative should start taking the knee any time “Lift Every Voice and Sing” is performed under the banner of the “Black National Anthem.” Now that’s not a half bad idea.

Marquita Bushrod

Marquita Bushrod

Marquita Bushrod, Project 21 Ambassador:

As long as the intent is pure, I am all for the NFL’s decision to have the hymn “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” also known as the “Black National Anthem,” be sung at the Super Bowl.

While no anthem can or should ever replace the National Anthem, “Lift Every Voice and Sing” is an important song in the history of black Americans that is a prayer to God of thanksgiving and freedom.

The song is not being performed during the game, nor it is replacing the National Anthem; rather it will be sung during the pregame which is appropriate during Black History Month. The National Anthem will still have its rightful place immediately prior to kickoff, which is customary.

For this reason, I see no issue with the song being performed. America needs all the prayers it can get as we are fighting for our freedom every day. Bringing this song to the NFL’s biggest game of the year is a win-win in my book.

Companies See Their LGBTQ Scores Tumble Despite Best Woke Efforts

Companies See Their LGBTQ Scores Tumble Despite Best Woke Efforts

LTP News Sharing:

This year we’ve seen Anheuser-Busch, Target and other companies sacrifice both their bottom lines and reputations in order to be seen as woke.

Turns out that didn’t quite pan out for them.

The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) touts its Corporate Equality Index (CEI)  as “the national benchmarking tool on corporate policies, practices and benefits pertinent to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer employees.” For years we’ve criticized the companies that continue to kiss the HRC ring even as HRC’s polices become ever more illogical, offensive and even predatory.

This year, despite their best efforts to stay atop the rankings, it seems almost 300 companies have seen their CEI scores decline.

Members of our Free Enterprise Project team, who have been vocal opponents of HRC’s corporate manipulation, are responding to this news.

Scott Shepard

Scott Shepard

Free Enterprise Project Director Scott Shepard:

HRC was once a legitimate civil rights organization that represented the genuine interests of most gay people. Now it has become both a lunatic asylum and an unvarnished cog in the leftwing pressure conglomerate.

Its Corporate “Equality” Index reflects this, being revised every year to make ever-more-radical demands on corporations in defense of positions that harm everyone — including and perhaps especially most gays and lesbians.

Because the CEI requires companies to take — and spend shareholder money to advance — the hard-left position on matters wholly unrelated to their business purposes, a company that scores 100 percent on the CEI has proudly declared its violation of its fiduciary duties.

Any companies that aren’t seeing lower CEI scores are betraying their duty and their shareholders.

 

Ethan Peck

Ethan Peck

Free Enterprise Project Associate Ethan Peck:

HRC constantly shifting the criteria for its index is part of its modus operandi – it keeps corporations fearful of a bad score, on edge and ready to succumb to new and more radical demands.

It’s right out of the Hamas & PLO playbook: If you give them a finger, they want your hand. So then you give them your arm and they take your head. They view appeasement not as an act of good faith or attempted compromise but as weakness – as an opportunity to exploit and keep exploiting.

That’s why Bud Light couldn’t buy its way to a good score, because HRC does not have an end goal – it is prepared to keep moving the goalposts indefinitely.

 

Stefan Padfield

Stefan Padfield

Free Enterprise Project Deputy Director Stefan Padfield:

Radical leftism is built upon unsustainable lies. We are told that despite all the natural diversity of individuals, we should expect equality of outcomes. We are told that despite their long history of being oppressed, Jews fall on the “oppressor” side of the oppressor-oppressed spectrum and thus may be “decolonized” by any means necessary.

And in the case of HRC, we are told that a man can become a woman simply by identifying as such.

These lies are ultimately unsustainable, but we must confront them nonetheless because of the damage they can cause before they are fully exposed.

And when it comes to corporate executives and directors, we must continue to exert pressure on them to stop placing their personal beliefs and self-interest ahead of their fiduciary duties, including by bending the knee to HRC.

Why is the Church Still Tithing?: Who is Really Robbing God?

Why is the church still struggling with Tithes and Offerings? Why, after nearly two thousand years, are we still in confusion? Are we under obligation to offer up our Tithes to God? If not, then why is the church teaching it? Are there any clear indications in the scriptures to point the way for us? Yes! Thank God, Yes! 

God is very clear on Tithing and Offerings, but the church today doesn’t suggest any clear directions to its members. This isn’t new; the first-century churches also had difficulties with the laws of Moses. As a matter of fact, the first general council of the new Christian church addressed keeping the laws of Moses as a requirement for Christian fellowship. Acts Chapter 15 records this major debate within the Church, should we require Circumcision in order to be saved? After much disputing Peter (vs 7-10 ) asked: “Why tempt ye God, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?” I ask the Church today the same question, if the prophets, children of Israel, and the disciples couldn’t keep and bear the yoke of the law, why are you burdening us with it?

Then James added (vs. 13-18 with Romans 3:21) that even the prophets agreed on salvation to the Gentiles is without the law. And they all concluded in verse (24) that Christians were not required to keep the law of Moses. (24)”Forasmuch as we have heard, that certain which went out from us have troubled you with words, subverting your soul, saying, Ye must be circumcised, and keep the law: to whom we gave no such commandment” 

James, Peter, Paul, and the other first-century apostles, teachers, and ministers felt it was a subversion of the soul to teach keeping the laws of Moses to Christians. So why are we still hearing about Tithing in the church today? Under what authority do preachers have to go back into the old Testaments and pull out one law, use only a small part of that Law and place its yoke around the people of God? By which scriptural permission does today’s church have to determine which part of the Old Testament Christ didn’t fulfill, died for, and abolish forever?

Galatians 3:1 “O Foolish Galatians, Who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?”

3:2 ” This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?”

3:3 “Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?”

Would Paul call the church today foolish? Are we trying to become justified by the works of the law, which was designed to condemn us? What are the results of believing in the law of Moses to salvation? Where are the praise, worship, and celebration? All we have is condemnation, death, and hell. The Law was never to benefit mankind, it was to condemn mankind. But because we have been under oppression for so long, we seek an oppressor over us. Even when victory was found, we still seek a master over us. It is our nature to serve our abuser. 

An abused woman will support her abuser. You cannot tell her she is being abused; she knows that. You cannot rescue her from her abuser; she will only return. If the abuser leaves her, she will find another. If you call the police while she is being beaten on her front lawn, she will get up and fight the police. She cannot be reached until she has had enough of the abuse. Then and only then will she leave in the middle of the night with only her clothes on her back. Then you had better have a safe place for you to go. A safe place all prepared to handle her fears and burdens. 

That was what the death and resurrection of Christ is to the church. While we were under the abusive Law, we supported and defended it. We sought to be under it and defended it. But we were rescued by our Savior and are no longer over the taskmaster. But some are trying to keep their loyalty to the abuser, and it is an insult to our Savior.

Galatians 5:1-6 (along with Romans 4:13-16) (1) “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. “(2) “Behold I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing.” (3) ” For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.” (4) “Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.” (5) “For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.” (6) “For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth anything, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.”

I believe Paul is very clear here; you cannot believe in the law and grace at the same time. You can’t serve two masters. Either Christ abolished the law, or He didn’t, and God will accept whichever choice we make. He will either judge us by the law or forgive us by the blood whichever one we select! 

Galatians 3:10 or Malachi 3:10? ONLY the truth will set you free.

Galatians 3:10 “For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.”

Are you free to Christ or a slave to the Law? The Galatians were warned not to take even a piece of the law because they would be required to keep all of the law. They had been raised to believe in the law, were required to keep the law, and had followed the traditions of their fathers with the law. But they had forgotten the promise of a deliverer from the law. They had not learned enough about the redemption from the law that they could not recognize their kinsmen redeemer when they saw Him. It is natural to keep our traditions. They form our culture, and culture forms our heritage. But man can void the very word of God with his traditions. Mark 7:13 “Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.” Make up your mind saints, do you live in Old Testament times or New Testament time? Why would Jesus need to die on the Cross if you are still under bondage?
