Breaking News For You And Your Church, Radical Islam Is Still A Threat, China vs. Hong Kong, The Real Covid Scandal

Gary Bauer
by Gary Bauer, Contributing Author: Update: Breaking News For You And Your Church
Moments ago, the president made an extraordinary announcement at the White House. President Trump demanded that the nation's governors allow churches to reopen, declaring religious services to be essential to the health of the nation.

During a White House press briefing, President Trump said:

"Today, I am identifying houses of worship, churches, synagogues and mosques, as essential places that provide essential services. . . I call upon governors to allow our churches and places of worship to open right now. . .

"These are places that hold our society together and keep our people united. . . Many Americans embrace worship as an essential part of life. . . In America, we need more prayer, not less."

To be clear: The president is not ordering churches to open, but he is instructing governors to allow them to open.

I can't tell you what has been happening behind the scenes in the last couple of days to make this announcement possible. But I am so pleased that God has allowed me to be part of the process that led to this outcome.

I urge all pastors and other religious leaders to rise to the occasion, of course, following prudent rules on how best to safeguard your congregations.

I urge all of you to share this information with your pastor, priest, rabbi or other religious leader right now. Ask how you can help make this happen this Memorial Day weekend or next weekend.

It has been a travesty watching left-wing governors and mayors rule that abortion clinics are essential, that lottery retailers are essential, that pot shops are essential, but that the places where we go to seek God are nothing to these left-wing politicians but disease spreaders.

President Trump just changed that with today's announcement. Now it is time for our religious leaders to find as much courage by reclaiming their First Amendment rights of freedom of speech, freedom of assembly and freedom of religion.

Still A Threat
While the progressive left and its media allies continue to obsess over the coronavirus and climate change, a jihadist attacked the Naval Air Station Corpus Christi in Texas yesterday.

Local law enforcement said within hours that it was an act of terrorism. The attacker, who was killed by base security officers, was identified as a Syrian national and had studied in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

This is the second jihadist attack against a U.S. Navy base in the past six months. Earlier in the week, Attorney General William Barr noted that the Pensacola shooter was working with Al Qaeda. We will see what else this investigation uncovers.

The Anti-Defamation League recently reported that there was a 50% increase last year in the number of domestic terrorism arrests linked to Islamic extremists. Clearly, radical Islamism remains a serious threat to our homeland and to the rest of the world.

Speaking Of Islamic Extremism. . .
Earlier this week, we told you that the daughter of Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, Isra Hirsi, denounced U.S. troops as "bitches" and baby killers in a recent Tik Tok post. Fast forward to today.

Law enforcement authorities in Maine are investigating the desecration of the grave of Master Sergeant Gary Gordon, a member of the Delta Force. Gordon was awarded the Medal of Honor posthumously for his courage during the Battle of Mogadishu.

You can learn more about his heroism here, which served as the inspiration for the book and movie "Black Hawk Down."

As you may recall, we were engaged in Somalia trying to save the country from radical Islamists. We later learned that Osama Bin Laden had a major influence in the Battle of Mogadishu.

It is worth mentioning that the Somali community in Minnesota, represented by Congresswoman Omar, has become a hotbed of terrorist recruitment. There also happens to be a large number of Somali refugees in Maine.

I concede I have no evidence, but I wouldn't be surprised if we later learn that Master Sergeant Gordon's grave was desecrated by an anti-American ingrate, perhaps someone inspired by Hirsi's Tik Tok rant.

Communist China Threatens Hong Kong
Ever since Great Britain relinquished sovereignty over Hong Kong, the Chinese communist bosses in Beijing have gone through a charade of pretending that the city-state has some semblance of self-governance. They did this because the communist regime signed a treaty in which it promised Hong Kong semi-autonomy for 50 years.

Beijing has been chipping away at the freedoms the residents of Hong Kong have enjoyed for years, but now the charade is over. Communist China just launched a direct assault on the city.

After massive pro-democracy demonstrations forced Hong Kong's puppet leaders to back down from their outrageous extradition bill last year, the Chinese Communist Party is planning to impose the law banning "treason, secession, sedition and subversion" through the National People's Congress in Beijing.

Once that it is done, China will have destroyed the "one country, two systems" model. Hong Kong will not be allowed to operate under anything but the communist system.

One pro-democracy leader referred to Beijing's move as "the largest nuclear weapon the Chinese Communist Party has used" against Hong Kong. Another described it as "the end of Hong Kong."

Reaction from U.S. leaders was swift. Senators Pat Toomey (R-PA) and Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) are drafting legislation to impose sanctions on Chinese officials, banks and businesses.

Senators Risch (R-ID), Rubio (R-FL) and Gardner (R-CO) blasted communist China for its "unprecedented assault against Hong Kong's autonomy" and for "once again breaking its promises."

Speaker Nancy Pelosi tweeted that Beijing's announcement was "deeply disturbing" and demonstrated the regime's "complete disrespect for the rule of law."

I couldn't agree more! Communist China lies, cheats and steals. Period.

The idea that a totalitarian system would tolerate a free city as part of its body politic is ludicrous on its face. Freedom in the midst of an oppressive regime is a threat to the oppressive regime, and Beijing is determined to stamp it out.

By the way, if China follows through on this action, it will send chills down the spines of the Taiwanese people. Unless the United States and our Asian allies safeguard our mutual interests in the Pacific, other countries, voluntarily or involuntarily, will fall into the orbit of communist China.

Again, it is impossible to imagine "Beijing Biden" standing up to the communist Chinese. In four decades in public office, he never did.

Speaking Of Biden. . .
He was on an influential show in the black community today known as "The Breakfast Club." The show's co-host is known as Charlamagne tha God.

Biden cut the interview short, and Charlamagne wasn't happy about it. He told Biden to come to New York to finish the interview because he had more questions for the former vice president.

Biden bizarrely responded, "If you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black."

Yes, Biden just questioned a man's ethnicity and pigeonholed an entire race of voters!

The Real Covid Scandal
Left-wing progressives have insisted that President Trump is responsible for every Covid death in the country. But they have been strangely silent about the growing scandal involving the obscene number of blue state nursing home patients who have died.

As we have reported recently, these deaths were due in large part to the policy decisions made by liberal governors. (Here, here and here.)

Today, the Associated Press reported that more than 4,300 Covid patients were transferred from New York hospitals to nursing homes, in spite of everything that was known about just how vulnerable the elderly were to this virus.

We're also learning that Minnesota Governor Tim Walz (D) has some explaining to do, as 81% of the Covid-related deaths in the North Star State have occurred in nursing homes.

These governors should be held accountable. It shows just how insane their plans are.

They have been on the news virtually every day reporting the latest death totals. Surely, they weren't clueless about the details of where those deaths were occurring or why.

Yet, their response was to tell the hard-working people of their states to lock down, sit down and shut up, while they presided over a massacre in the state's nursing homes.

Meanwhile, they keep moving the goal posts from flattening the curve to falling numbers and now to waiting until there's a vaccine. There is no logic that can explain this.
