At his nature, man is corrupt, a truth stated in scripture and borne out in history and the human experience. How else does one explain the over 100 million who perished by Communism in the 20th century, following the dawn of progressivism?
Denial of man’s real nature provides the cloak behind which would-be despots hide their true intentions. Only those who understand the natural state of man will comprehend how evil men could conspire to incite fear and control from crisis, as they do today.
At its root, the solution requires not merely a change in circumstances but a change in heart. And this cannot come from within ourselves, but only from Jesus Christ (John 3, Romans 1-6).
Note: Due to the magnitude of the attacks against freedom, this week’s brief is longer than usual. This week’s news is grouped in six main categories: (1) the Covid-19 agenda, (2) the globalist economic agenda, (3) the woke/trans agenda, (4) the immigration agenda, (5) the cultural agenda, and (6) other agendas.
Note: We’ve added a comments section at the very bottom of this page for readers to share their ideas on how to best stand for freedom.
THE COVID-19 AGENDA
1. COVID CONCENTRATION CAMPS ARE HERE: In contrast to 20th-century despots who openly exploited their people, today’s totalitarians pretend to pursue the public good as they wage war on freedom. New York’s Senate has passed a bill to authorize the government to lock up citizens in concentration camps for an indefinite period if they are constituted as a threat to public health. Canada is now requiring all citizens who return to the country to quarantine in government facilities (internment camps) if they test positive for Covid-19. To learn more, see our selected video from Tucker Carlson.
2. ELITES PROPOSE A GLOBAL PANDEMIC TREATY: Never forgot the goal: a one-world totalitarian technocratic order, as the late David Rockefeller himself once admitted.
Now, the Covid crisis provides the excuse for a global pandemic treaty to “build a more robust international health architecture that will protect future generations.” Life Site News reports, “U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson, French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the head of the World Health Organization (WHO), as well as 20 other world leaders, joined forces in penning a joint letter with the apparent intent of winning popular support for the globalist plan.”
The signatories called Covid-19 the “biggest challenge to the global community since the 1940s” and predicted that there “will be other pandemics and other major health emergencies.”
Further, they stated, “No single government or multilateral agency can address this threat alone. The question is not if, but when. Together, we must be better prepared to predict, prevent, detect, assess and effectively respond to pandemics in a highly coordinated fashion. The Covid-19 pandemic has been a stark and painful reminder that nobody is safe until everyone is safe.” Read the full text of the letter here.
3. NOTABLE COVID-19 HEADLINES: Consider the following headlines.
4. GRACE LIFE COMMUNITY CHURCH IN CANADA SHUT DOWN: On April 7, authorities erected chain-link fencing around the church and blocked the entrances. The church’s pastor, James Coates, was previously jailed and fined $1500 for keeping his church open against government mandates. One individual tweeted, “Never forget: The airports never closed, the subways never closed, the buses never stopped running (all things that would have happened if COVID was truly dangerous). This is all political targeting.”
Erin Coates, the pastor’s wife, featured images of the fencing on Instagram. She wrote, “Now they’ve chained the doors of GraceLife Church, enclosing in chain link fence. This is all under the guise of a health order. Too bad the Church isn’t a building; it’s a blood-bought people. Christ has and will prevail…I pray for all the pastors and Christians that still think this is about a virus and health order. God have mercy on our nation.” Learn more here.
5. CANADIAN PASTOR STANDS UP: In Canada, Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of The Cave of Adullam told six police officers to leave after they disrupted the church’s Easter service without warrants. “Out! You understand? Nazis are not welcome here. Out! Do not come back without a warrant. Do you understand that? Gestapo is not welcome here. Unbelievable, sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover. The holiest Christian festival in a year, and they’re coming to intimidate Christians?” The viral video has seen over 3 million views. Watch it here.
6. COVID VACCINE “VARIANTS” FEED THE FEAR NARRATIVE: CNN reports, “The highly contagious Covid-19 variant first discovered in the UK has now spread to all 50 states. More than 15,000 such cases have been reported in the US, and while vaccines are highly effective against the variants, medical experts are worried we may not be vaccinating fast enough to prevent more major outbreaks.” Last week’s brief exposed how Bill Gates and others are promoting variants to create fear and seize more control. This comes at a time when only 35% of Americans are worried about catching Covid-19, the lowest since April of 2020.
7. VACCINE PASSPORTS IN THE UK AND SOUTH KOREA: The British government says vaccine passports will be a “feature of our lives,” possibly even after Covid has passed. A Canadian study promises that vaccine passports will be “imminently introduced.” South Korea looks to implement vaccine passports based on blockchain technology. Prime Minister Chung Sye-kyun has assured, “The introduction of a vaccine passport or ‘Green Pass’ will only allow those who have been vaccinated to experience the recovery to their daily lives.”
8. WARNINGS AGAINST VACCINE PASSPORTS: Dr. Joseph Mercola explains how IBM, the same company that is working to develop vaccine passports in the US today, provided the information technology system through its European affiliates that allowed Hitler to track and then exterminate the Jews.
Former Clinton advisor Naomi Wolf gave this warning in a recent interview: “‘Vaccine passport’ sounds like a fine thing if you don’t understand what those platforms can do. I’m [the] CEO of a tech company. I understand what these platforms can do. It is not about the vaccine; it’s not about the virus; it’s about your data.”
Wolf continued, “Once this rolls out, you don’t have a choice about being part of the system. What people have to understand is that any other functionality can be loaded onto that platform with no problem at all. It can be merged with your Paypal account, with your digital currency. Microsoft is already talking about merging it with payment plans.”
“Your network can be sucked up. It geolocates you everywhere you go. Your credit history can be included. All of your medical and health history can be included.”
“This has already happened in Israel, and six months later, we’re hearing from activists that it’s a two-tiered society and that basically, activists are ostracized and surveilled continually. It is the end of civil society, and they are trying to roll it out around the world.”
“It is absolutely so much more than a vaccine pass…I cannot stress enough that it has the power to turn off your life, or to turn on your life, to let you engage in society or be marginalized.”
To better understand vaccine passports, or to watch the interview with Naomi Wolf, read the following article from Dr. Joseph Mercola, entitled, “Vaccines Are the New Purity Test.”
9. STATES JOIN FLORIDA IN RESISTING AGAINST VACCINE PASSPORTS: Two states, New York and Nevada, have already launched vaccine passports, while at least 18 states (including Florida and Texas) have passed introduced legislation or executive orders to ban vaccine passports. You can personally stand up against masks, mandates, and vaccines, and encourage your legislators to as well. (See Agenda Weekly Action section).
In related news, Alabama Governor Kay Ivey has ended that state’s mask mandate.
THE GLOBALIST ECONOMIC AGENDA
1. IMF AND TREASURY HEAD PROPOSE GLOBAL MINIMUM TAX FOR CORPORATIONS: Such a tax would curb “tax avoidance.” In her first major address said, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen advocated for a global minimum tax, less protection for American businesses, and more global cooperation. Yellen said, “America first must never mean America alone.” Biden supports the plan, as do finance ministers from the Group of 20 countries (G-20).
Even Amazon’s Jeff Bezos endorses the plan, along with Biden’s proposed hike on corporate taxes, likely knowing that both measures wouls squeeze out smaller competitors.
2. INTERNATIONALIST GROUPS WANT INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND TO LEAD GLOBAL RECOVERY: Citing Covid-19 variant mutations (see #6 in Covid agenda section), the Council on Foreign Relations said that this requires all nations to work together. The CFR proposed, “With the support of its wealthy members, including the United States, the IMF should provide greater financial assistance and more liberal borrowing terms to help the world’s developing countries recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Jeffrey D. Sachs, writing in the internationalist Project Syndicate, recommended, “A new allocation of up to $650 billion worth of the IMF’s reserve asset, special drawing rights, would ensure that governments have the means to combat the coronavirus pandemic and start on the path of investment-led recovery. We must seize this critical opportunity to cooperate effectively for the sake of humanity.” Of course, these loans will only make poorer nations more indebted to the IMF and, therefore, unable to resist globalist encroachment.
3. WAR ON CASH ACCELERATES: China has now officially unveiled its own digital currency, a tool to better control its economy and people. Financial analyst Jim Rickards reveals why global elites (including in the US) want to eliminate cash and switch to a fully digital currency: to impose negative interest rates and to control people by controlling every transaction.
THE WOKE/TRANSGENDER AGENDA
1. “TRANS” AGENDA IN PRISONS AND SPORTS: Following the implementation of a new California law on January 1, 261 prisoners want to switch to prisons not corresponding with their biological gender. 255 of these are biological males who pretend to be females and want to switch to female facilities. The NCAA is now backing men in women’s sports. Due to wokeism in sports, nearly 35% of Americans report that they now watch less sports than they did a few years ago.
2. THE MILITARY CONTINUES TO GO WOKE: After reversing Trump’s ban on “transgenders,” a new order goes further to allow members to disfigure themselves and “transition gender while serving,” according to the Pentagon’s new guidelines.
Continuing in the woke vein, the Daily Signal reports, “The Defense Department is promoting reading resources on opposing ‘systemic racism’ that include radical authors as part of a program to combat extremism within the ranks of the military.”
3. ARKANSAS PASSES BILL TO PROTECT MINORS FROM GENDER MUTILATION OVER RHINO GOVERNOR’S VETO: The Arkansas state legislature stood up and overrode Governor Asa Hutchinson’s veto of a bill to block “transgender” procedures for those under 18, becoming the first state to do so. The Arkansas Senate also voted to block their Governor from ever again imposing a mask mandate.
THE IMMIGRATION AGENDA
1. NEW YORK FUNDING ILLEGALS: Almost 200,000 illegals in New York will soon receive a generous $2.1 billion in taxpayer-funded stimulus checks and unemployment benefits from the new budget. Simultaneously, over one million jobs have been lost in the state since the beginning of Covid-19. Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York believes that migrant families should receive taxpayer-funded “reparations.”
Thomas Jefferson reportedly once said, “The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.”
2. TERRORISTS COMING ACROSS US BORDER: Two men on a terror watch list have been arrested at the southern border, an incident the Biden administration attempted to cover up. At the same time, 53% of Americans say border security and immigration need improvement, according to a new poll. Immigration officials apprehended a staggering 172,000 illegals at the border in March.
THE CULTURAL AGENDA
1. 60% OF AMERICANS AND FRENCH WANT CHANGE: According to the Pew study, they believe (especially Americans) that most politicians are corrupt, and they think their political systems need radical change. What kind of change will they get?
2. FREEDOM ROAD SOCIALISTS RE-ARTICULATE THEIR VISION: In a recent article that highlighted race, unionization, and the immigration crisis, the Freedom Road Socialists said, “The fight against the national oppression of Blacks, Chicanos, and other nationalities is an important struggle the working class must continue to wage.” They continued, “It is clear that the rule of the 1% needs to be replaced by a system that benefits that 99%. This system, Socialism, must be achieved by any means necessary.” They asked members to celebrate “the struggle of the international working class” on May Day.
1. INSIDE GEORGIA’S LAW: President Trump has encouraged Americans to boycott Major League Baseball, Delta, and Coca-Cola. “Baseball is already losing tremendous numbers of fans, and now they leave Atlanta with their All-Star Game because they are afraid of the Radical Left Democrats who do not want voter I.D., which is desperately needed, to have anything to do with our elections,” Trump wrote in a statement. “Boycott baseball and all of the woke companies that are interfering with Free and Fair Elections. Are you listening Coke, Delta, and all?”

2. BIDEN ANNOUNCES SIX GUN CONTROL EXECUTIVE ORDERS: These orders come to fight what Biden called an “epidemic and an international embarrassment.” During remarks at the White House, Biden said, “The idea that we have so many people dying every single day from gun violence in America is a blemish on our character as a nation.” Referring to the Second Amendment, Biden even stated, “No amendment is absolute.” The order includes new rules on untraceable “ghost guns” and modified pistols. Further, Biden nominated David Chipman, a former federal agent, and employee at the gun control group Giffords, to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms. Giffords was on the FBI team that oversaw the 1993 Waco, Texas massacre.
Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey signed legislation on April 6 that would prohibit police and sheriffs in the state from enforcing new federal gun laws that may violate the Constitution’s Second Amendment. On April 2, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds signed a constitutional carry bill, while Tennessee Governor Bill Lee signed a similar bill on April 6.
3. EXAMINER RULES ASHLEY BABBIT’S DEATH AS HOMICIDE: The Chief Medical Examiner for the District of Columbia released a report stating the Ashli Babbit’s death on January 6 in the Capitol was a homicide.
4. DEMOCRATIC SENATOR JOE MANCHIN SUPPORTS KEEPING THE FILIBUSTER: From Democratic Senator Joe Manchin: “The filibuster is a critical tool to protecting that input and our democratic form of government. That is why I have said it before and will say it again to remove any shred of doubt: There is no circumstance in which I will vote to eliminate or weaken the filibuster. The time has come to end these political games and to usher a new era of bipartisanship where we find common ground on the major policy debates facing our nation.”
HYMN OF THE WEEK
O JESUS I HAVE PROMISED BY JOHN E. BODE
O Jesus, I have promised to serve Thee to the end;
Be Thou forever near me, my Master and my Friend;
I shall not fear the battle if Thou art by my side,
Nor wander from the pathway if Thou wilt be my Guide.
Oh, let me hear Thee speaking in accents clear and still,
I dare not trust my judgment: Thy way shall be my will;
Oh, speak to reassure me, to hasten or control;
Oh, speak, and help me listen, Thou Guardian of my soul.
O Jesus, Thou hast promised to all who follow Thee
That where Thou art in glory there shall Thy servant be;
And Jesus, I have promised to serve Thee to the end—
Oh, give me grace to follow, my Master and my Friend.
Oh, let me see Thy footprints, and in them plant mine own;
My hope to follow duly is in Thy strength alone;
Oh, guide me, call me, draw me, uphold me to the end;
And then in Heav’n receive me, my Savior and my Friend.
