It's not about contraception

by Sara J

"Government is instituted to protect property of every sort... [and] conscience is the most sacred of all property." James Madison

The current attack against the Catholic Church from the Obama administration is not about birth control. Freedom is under attack across the globe, and has been under attack since long before America's founding. It wasn't until the United States Constitution was written that freedom was sewn into the roots of any nation. America's founding documents protect the God-given rights of the people from an oppressive government.

These Truths that are sewn into the fabric of America allows the individual to correct course when the leaders and institutions around them go astray, not depend on the leaders and institutions to solve all of the problems. This is why America is known for it's people not necessarily it's landmarks or leaders, and why faith and The Church have always played a large role in its history. America has been great, because Americans are good. But, with God being labeled as "taboo" by the media, while the unique religious freedom of America continues to be disregarded by its federal government, people of faith need to take a stand soon or everything could change.

Throughout America's history it has been our people of faith and our religious institutions that have started the movements causing real positive change in the American people and our laws. For example, Martin Luther King, a Baptist Preacher, lead the Civil Rights Movement. Our Judeo-Christian values have set the tone for our country, allowing Americans to better themselves throughout history.

This is not simply an attack on the Catholic Church, reproductive rights, or a push for better “women’s health.” Contraception is not a right. The ability of a church to uphold its doctrine--that's a right, and it's clearly stated in the First Amendment of our Constitution. I women think it's the job of their employer to provide them free birth control pills in the name of 'gender equality,' they can find an employer outside of the Catholic Church. (side note: nothing says strong, independent female like begging for free birth control pills…).

The contraception mandates the Obama Administration is attempting to place on Catholic institutions would force these them to break Catholic Doctrine--a direct violation of their freedom of religion protected by The Constitution.

Thomas Jefferson said, “No provision in our Constitution ought to be dearer to man than that which protects the rights of conscience.” Also stating, “our rulers can have no authority over such natural rights only as we have submitted to them. The rights of conscience we never submitted.”

It has taken progressives over one hundred years to paint people of faith as extremists and blur the divide between good and evil, but they did, and I’m afraid that many Americans either don’t see the battle we’re in or think it’s not their battle to fight. Conservative politicians, political pundits, disenfranchised voters, religious leaders and others are pointing the finger at the White House, outraged that they believe they have the authority to force the Catholic Church to break with its doctrine—but before that finger is pointed at the White House, we all need to pick up a mirror and point it at ourselves.

The church in America has had a weak influence on our culture in recent years. All you have to do is turn on a TV to notice that “God” is used in vane far more than in any other instance. Our music, movies, advertising, and most other tools of messaging have gone completely secular. It’s not rare to hear someone apologize “for all the God talk” or say “I don’t mean to preach, but,” before openly bringing up their faith or God in a conversation. Politically correct is quickly transforming into morally bankrupt.

We have allowed society to remove the church from the mainstream, and have sat quietly in our “appropriate pews” on Sundays while the country continues down its path of self-destruction. The church is not standing up to the evil growing across the country. Should we really be shocked family values have taken a backseat in society when the church is taking a backseat in our daily lives?

How does a nation that proclaims to be ‘one nation under God,’ allow itself to be run by a group of progressives that have such high levels of animosity towards faith and God, and claim that “you can’t legislate morality?” Of course we can, but not until the people move in a moral direction. Morality is always a step ahead of policy. Did we not outlaw slavery and segregation, give women the right to vote, or put an end to child labor? The higher our moral values are the freer we will be.

History has not been kind to countries that have ignored blatant evil and strayed from their values. In Germany little things started happening between the state and the church. It always starts small--a little nudge. Then the state started to bully the churches. They enacted laws restricting religious education and institutions, and no one spoke up until it was too late. Evil always starts small, but history has proven that government overreach will eventually affect every single one of us, if it isn’t already.

It is time for a movement towards goodness. Whether you’re Catholic, Protestant, Mormon, Jewish, etc. it’s our job to protect our rights, not only by speaking out when they’re under attack, but by living them in our daily lives, so they stay in the mainstream. We should hold one another and ourselves accountable to what we say we believe and how we live our lives. If we don’t live our faith in the good times, our faith will be too weak to make it through the bad times.

In 2009 the right of conscience of pro-life doctors and nurses who wouldn’t perform abortions was under attack, today it’s the doctrine of the Catholic Church. If doctors are made to perform abortions that are in direct violation of their beliefs, churches are being mandated to break with their doctrine to comply with the law, and the attack on our faith continues, we will be headed in a very disturbing direction.

Today the battle is against the Catholic Church, but the war is being waged against all people of faith and man’s freedom.

Senator Roy Blunt (MO-R) has proposed an amendment called the Conscience Protection Measure. This is a small battle in a big fight, but holds the power to make a big statement to the country and the globe that we won’t stand idly by while our faith is under attack.

When Biden was given the keys to the Oval Office in January 2021, gas was $2.50 a gallon and the inflation rate was 1.4%. Today gas is at $3.32 a gallon and the inflation rate is at 7% ... and STILL RISING. These are just 12 months of numbers, but we’re clearly in a worrying decline. While the economy has opened up more post-COVID, it’s not just getting worse — we’re going IN REVERSE.

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard (and the very top of his studio ceiling) to explain what’s happening to inflation and why it’s so hard for your family to afford basic goods and groceries. It’s not “corporate greed,” as Democrats have been telling you. The Biden administration wants to continue to spend trillions of dollars to “reinvent capitalism,” but that’s in addition to the trillions that are being pumped out IN THE SHADOWS.

Glenn exposes what the Fed has been doing behind closed doors and shows us the tidal wave that’s about to hit. He’s looked at the numbers, and they're frightening. Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” gives advice to Americans who want to protect their checking and savings accounts before it’s too late.

The stock markets have taken a nosedive in the biggest downtrend since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. But that's nothing compared to what's coming thanks to our government's embrace of modern monetary theory, warned BlazeTV's Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It really is important that you understand what's happening to us," Glenn stated. "Modern monetary theory is truly the [fuel] ... for the great reset. It is the idea that we can print as much money and spend as much money as we want," he explained.

"Then the next step is to release the Federal Reserve digital currency and make payments by other currencies [including cryptocurrencies] illegal," he continued. "And you're seeing it happen now in real time. Why would they do this? Because you cannot print this kind of money without having absolute control over how it is spent."

Glenn broke down the steps powerful political organizations — like the Federal Reserve — will take to end currency competition and enact a Federal digital dollar, which will allow for the government to have complete control over how we spend our money.

"This is what's coming. This is coming quickly, and events will make it move faster. For instance, why is Joe Biden basically giving Ukraine to Russia? He's giving it to them. He he knows Russia's not afraid of him. Putin knows that [Biden] is not going to do anything ... neither is NATO. They're not going to do anything," Glenn said.

"It's because war resets everything. War is the best great resetter. Changes boundaries. It changes borders. It changes laws. It changes societies. It changes currencies. It changes everything. And in the end you just want the war to stop. And so you you accept whatever it is the terms are that you're going to have to live under now. We're in very, very dangerous times. The only way to survive this is to know why they are dangerous times."

Chances are, you've noticed that many large companies have decided to become woke activists, despite the fact that alienating half your customer base is a terrible business strategy.

This woke shift isn't being driven by the usual market forces. It's the Great Reset's ESG score system at work, Glenn Beck said on "GlennTV." Under the “environmental, social, and governance” score system, companies will no longer make decisions based on what you, the consumer, want. Now, it's all about what those in power deem society should want. And it's not just businesses that are affected, he explained.

11 things you can do to help stop the Great Reset

The foundation of the American way of life is freedom from tyranny, which can only exist in a nation that defends the rights, powers, and property of individuals and families. Over the past two centuries, the greatest threats to liberty have come from governments, both foreign and domestic. And from the beaches of Normandy to the civil rights movement of the 1960s, Americans have repeatedly conquered the challenges placed before them by those seeking to extinguish or limit individual rights.

However, over the past few years, a new, potentially catastrophic danger has emerged, but not primarily from the halls of Congress or state capitols. This threat to freedom has largely emanated from the board rooms of the world’s wealthiest, most powerful corporations, large financial institutions, central banks, and international organizations such as the United Nations and World Economic Forum.

In an attempt to secure vast amounts of wealth and influence over society, corporate CEOs, bankers, and investors, working closely with key government officials, have launched a unified effort to impose environmental, social, and governance (ESG) standards on most of the industrialized global economy. ESG standards are also referred to as “sustainable investment” or “stakeholder capitalism.” According to a report by KPMG, thousands of companies, located in more than 50 countries, already have ESG systems in place, including 82 percent of large companies in the United States.

ESG standards are designed to create a “great reset of capitalism” and to “revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions.” ESG supporters plan to enact these radical changes by using ESG schemes to alter how businesses and investments are evaluated, so that instead of focusing on the quality of goods and services, profits, and other traditional economic metrics, companies — including financial institutions — are evaluated largely on their commitment to social justice and environmental causes and then assigned scores so that companies can be compared, rewarded, or potentially punished.

Supporters of the movement for a Great Reset also plan on using technology to limit free speech and privacy rights, and they support creating vast new government programs that are designed to transform the Western economy via the Green New Deal, European Green Deal, a federal jobs guarantee, and basic income programs.

Together, the proposals that make up the Great Reset represent the most serious threat to freedom in the West since the fall of the Soviet Union and perhaps since World War II. But there is hope. We can stop the Great Reset, but only if we act quickly and with great conviction.

Below are 11 steps you can take to push back against the Great Reset. These steps represent a powerful bottom-up, grassroots approach to the Great Reset’s top-down plan to remake the world. Although many of these steps won’t be easy for everyone to take, they are essential for ensuring that our children and grandchildren will grow up in a world that protects the rights of individuals and empowers families, rather than wealthy special interests, financial institutions, and large corporations.

1. Live Not by Lies: The time for remaining quiet is over. When you hear or see something that you know to be false, speak up. Be kind, generous, and compassionate, but do not, under any circumstances, allow lies to infect your life. Further, do not support organizations, publications, politicians, schools, or any other institutions that regularly promote false claims.

2. Buy Local: The reason the Great Reset is so powerful is because so many of us have become totally dependent on large multinational corporations. They can be easily manipulated in a way that small, local businesses cannot. Learn to buy local, whenever possible, even if it means spending more money on your purchases. Yes, big corporations offer conveniences and low prices that many small businesses can’t compete with, but those benefits come with a great cost: your freedom.

3. Bank Local: Big financial institutions and banks are driving much of the Great Reset movement. They have started to use their incredible wealth and power to alter society by financing only those businesses who agree to the terms of the Great Reset. This problem is going to get worse, so it’s important to find local banks and credit unions you can trust and who refuse to utilize ESG scores and other discriminatory schemes.

4. Support Local Farms: If you live in an area that has local farms and farmer’s markets, consider buying as many of your groceries as possible from farmers. In the future, food production and distribution are going to change dramatically. It’s important that you support local farmers and build relationships with individuals who can provide you with the goods you need in a time of crisis. One of our main goals must be to make local communities as self-sufficient as possible, and that cannot happen unless we support local farms.

5. Be Vocal: After starting to shop and bank locally, be sure to tell big financial institutions and corporations why they have lost your business. They need to know that their decisions have serious consequences.

6. Run for Local Government: Local and state governments will soon be our most important defense against the Great Reset. Consider running for your local school board, zoning board, or even for a state legislative office. If you don’t feel qualified for these positions, find someone who shares your values and help them run for office. If we don’t have control of our local governments, we won’t be able to halt the Great Reset.

7. Demand That Your State Pass Laws Against ESG Scores: In America, states have a tremendous amount of power to slow the Great Reset and protect their citizens from abuses by large corporations, banks, and international institutions. They can do this by passing laws that make the use of ESG metrics and other, similar systems by financial institutions illegal, when used as a precondition for banking services, financing, investment, etc. ESG scores are, by definition, discriminatory and should be made illegal by state lawmakers who care about protecting their citizens’ rights.

8. Make Responsible Spending a Key Issue for Politicians: In recent years, politicians on the ideological left and right have totally abandoned responsible fiscal policy in favor of vast money printing and loose monetary policies. The many trillions of dollars that have been “printed” in recent years put our economy at risk and are being used to fuel the Great Reset. Without these trillions of dollars of printed money, it would be exceptionally difficult for governments and financial institutions to buy off corporations.

9. Organize Anti-Great Reset Groups: No matter where you live, there are Americans in your community who do not support the Great Reset — Republicans, Democrats, and independents alike. Find like-minded neighbors and organize a local, peaceful resistance. Find people you can trust and agree to support one another when times get tough. Now, more than ever, we need to develop dependable communities.

10. Buy Property and Diversify: Property ownership is going to become increasingly more difficult in the months and years to come. It’s important that you work with a qualified financial adviser to help you figure out the best way to buy property and diversify your investments. Buying hard assets, including real estate and precious metals, could be a good way for you to protect against the Great Reset and a possible financial collapse. If you already own property, resist selling it to large corporations and financial institutions, whenever possible. (This is not financial advice, and I’m not a financial adviser. Talk to an expert you trust before taking action!)

11. Make the Great Reset a Litmus Test for Politicians: Before supporting politicians, find out if they know what the Great Reset is and what they plan to do to stop it. If they aren’t familiar with the Great Reset or don’t have a plan to halt it, then demand that they learn about the Great Reset and develop a proposal to prevent it. Political leaders who refuse to take the Great Reset seriously do not deserve your support. This is the key issue of our generation.
