What Is Patriotism and Why Does It Matter?

AGENDA Weekly Brief

Week of March 28-April 3

Dear Friend,

Tomorrow, we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. When all appeared lost, He triumphed, emerging victorious, over sin, death, and hell. The angel said, “He is not here: for He is risen” (Matthew 28:6).

The God of the resurrection is the God who holds the nations as a “drop in the bucket” (Isaiah 40). He delights in demonstrating His power when all seems lost.

He can be our hope for this life, but more importantly, for the life to come.

1. BILL GATES SAYS THAT COVID VARIANTS COULD PROLONG COVID-19: “We’ve come a long way in the fight against Covid-19. But new variants could threaten the progress we’ve made over the past year,” said Bill Gates in a March 31 video.

Gates says that Covid-19 vaccines help immensely, but “because these new variants have emerged, following best practices is even more important than ever.” These “best practices” can stop new variants. Gates promised, “If we remain vigilant about social distancing, getting vaccinated, and using a mask, we will bring the pandemic to an end much sooner.” Interestingly, comments were turned off for this video, as they are for most videos on Gates’s channel.

In the accompanying article, Gates wrote, “The big question now is whether we need to update the vaccines to target the variants. Regulators and drug companies are working on a modified vaccine that could be out in a couple of months if it’s deemed necessary.” Given the amount of money Pharma companies stand to gain from new vaccines and the amount of power globalists stand to lose if the Covid crisis ends, it’s likely that new vaccines will indeed be introduced, to be updated annually. Internationalists will “never let a good crisis go to waste”, unless individuals continue to push back together. Two of our action items are designed to help you do just that.

2. UNDER 50% OF AMERICANS SAY THEY BELONG TO A CHURCH, THE LOWEST FIGURE EVER: In 2018, Gallup said that 50% of Americans were members of a church, synagogue, or mosque. In 2020, that number dipped to 47%, according to a Gallup poll released on March 29. That number was 73% in 1937, the first year Gallup measured church attendance, and 70% in 1999. Antonio Gramsci, the father of cultural Marxism, once said, “Socialism is precisely the religion that must overwhelm Christianity…In the new order, Socialism will triumph by first capturing the culture via infiltration of schools, universities, churches and the media by transforming the consciousness of society.” Being part of a healthy church body and sharing the gospel has never been more critical.

3. NEW YORK LEADS THE WAY WITH VACCINE PASSPORTS: The state of New York has partnered with IBM to provide a “voluntary” and “secure” vaccine passport. Governor Andrew Cuomo stated, “New Yorkers have proven they can follow public health guidance to beat back COVID, and the innovative Excelsior Pass is another tool in our new toolbox to fight the virus while allowing more sectors of the economy to reopen safely and keep personal information secure.” This system could easily be extended to other states.

On March 28, The Washington Post reported, “The Biden administration and private companies are working to develop a standard way of handling credentials – often referred to as ‘vaccine passports’ – that would allow Americans to prove they have been vaccinated against the novel coronavirus as businesses try to reopen.”

Vaccine passports are today’s version of “show me your papers.” Even former Bill Clinton advisor and liberal feminist Naomi Wolf believes that “vaccine passports equal slavery forever.” Vaccine passports are totalitarian people-control and must be resisted.

4. FLORIDA GOVERNOR RON DESANTIS STANDS AGAINST VACCINE PASSPORTS: On April 2, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed an executive order banning vaccine passports in Florida. DeSantis said that the state legislature is working to make the ban permanent. DeSantis stated, “It’s completely unacceptable for either the government or the private sector to impose upon you the requirement you show proof of vaccine to just simply be able to participate in normal society.”

Governor DeSantis is leading the way, showing how a coalition of states could stand up to the federal government. U.S. Congresswoman Marjorie Greene has introduced a bill to ban vaccine passports. Ask your legislators and governor to stand with DeSantis, and consider personally boycotting businesses that promote such passports.

5. BIDEN PROMISES EXECUTIVE ORDER ON GUN CONTROL: “I can’t give you an exact time frame, in part, because they have to go through a review process, which is something that we do from here,” said Press Secretary Jen Psaki.

After signing a gun control bill in 1938, Adolf Hitler said, “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subjected people to carry arms; History​ shows that all conquered who have allowed their subjected people to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing.”

6. U.S. COMMUNIST PARTY BLAMES CAPITALISM FOR GENDER INEQUALITY: “Divide and conquer,” long a key element of the Marxist strategy, has only accelerated in the past year, as Marxists worked to pit blacks and whites (BLM), Chinese against Americans (the problem is not the Chinese, but the Chinese Communist Party), Democrats against Republicans (instead of elites against freedom), the rich against the poor, those who hold to a biblical definition of family and identity against those who promote radical gender ideology, and men against women.

In a March 26 article, Communist Party USA writer Lef Fazekas highlighted how Covid-19 caused nearly 11 million women to become unemployed and concurrently witnessed skyrocketing domestic abuse. However, rather than blaming the Marxist/globalist agitators who exploited the plandemic, Fazekas called to end the free market system that enables liberty. “It is not because of the disease itself, but rather because gender equity cannot be achieved under capitalism. Indeed, gendered oppression is an integral part of how the system itself operates.”

7. U.S. COMMUNIST PARTY PROCLAIMS ALLEGIANCE TO WITH CHINESE COMMUNIST PARTY: Trevor Loudon reveals the true domestic enemies within the U.S. “On March 10, a high-level delegation from the CPUSA met with senior CCP officials in Beijing. According to an article on the CPUSA website, the International Department of the CPUSA and the International Commission of the Central Committee of the CCP ‘held a bilateral meeting to celebrate and discuss the 100th anniversary’ of the CCP.”

8. OVER 100 VACCINATED PEOPLE CONTRACT COVID IN WASHINGTON STATE: The Epoch Times reports that 102 individuals in Washington State who were fully vaccinated (meaning they had received both doses of either the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine or the single dose of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine) tested positive for Covid-19.

9. DON’T BE DECEIVED BY GEORGIA’S DEEP STATE GOVERNOR AND SECRETARY OF STATE: Georgia recently passed an election security law which was defended by Governor Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. However, both men supported the election fraud in Georgia, which proves their allegiance to the Deep State. Their moves now come too late, and are likely just stunts aimed at salvaging their careers.

10. FEDERAL PROSECUTORS QUIETLY DROP JANUARY 6 CAPITOL CLAIMS DUE TO LACK OF EVIDENCE: Even Reuters admitted, “Amid setbacks, prosecutors abandon some claims in U.S. Capitol riot cases.” According to Big League Politics, “No counts for sedition have been filed against any of those charged thus far.”

11. BIDEN UNVEILS $2.5 TRILLION INFRASTRUCTURE BILL: Only $538 Billion in the package funds actual infrastructures like roads, bridges, ports, and airports. The rest goes to socialist pet projects. Read the details here.

12. APPLE AND GOOGLE COLLUDING: Marketers for an Open Web (MOW) believes that Apple and Google are conspiring to create a monopoly. In an email, Google and Apple executives reportedly discussed a “vision that we work as if we are one company.” Learn more here.

13. OVER ONE MILLION ILLEGALS EXPECTED TO CROSS US BORDER IN 2021: “We’re already starting to see some higher days of 6,000-plus apprehensions,” Raul Ortiz, deputy chief of the U.S. Border Patrol, told reporters. “So, I fully expect our border patrol agents to encounter over a million people this year.” However, Breitbart reports, “Government officials now predict that President Joe Biden’s deputies expect two million foreigners will cross the southern U.S. border by September.”

14. TEXAS RANGERS SHUN COVID RESTRICTIONS: The Texas Rangers plan to open their stadium to 100% capacity, but Biden isn’t happy, and has called the plan “a mistake.”

15. DONALD TRUMP LAUNCHES NEW WEBSITE: “The Office of Donald J. Trump is committed to preserving the magnificent legacy of the Trump Administration, while at the same time advancing the America First agenda,” the landing page of 45office.comstates. Learn more here.

16. HYMN OF THE WEEK:
HE LIVES by ALFRED ACKLEY

I serve a risen Saviour, He’s in the world today.
I know that He is living, whatever men may say.
I see His hand of mercy, I hear His voice of cheer,
And just the time I need Him He’s always near.

He lives! He lives! Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and talks with me
along life’s narrow way.
He lives! He lives! Salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know He lives?
He lives within my heart.

In all the world around me I see His loving care,
And though my heart grows weary I never will despair.
I know that He is leading, thro’ all the stormy blast;
The day of His appearing will come at last.

He lives! He lives! Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and talks with me
along life’s narrow way.
He lives! He lives! Salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know He lives?
He lives within my heart.

Rejoice, rejoice, O Christian! Lift up your voice and sing.
Eternal hallelujahs to Jesus Christ, the King!
The Hope of all who seek Him, the Help of all who find,
None other is so loving, so good and kind.

He lives! He lives! Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and talks with me,
along life’s narrow way.
He lives! He lives! Salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know He lives?
He lives within my heart.
