Plug: Fight Laugh Feast Conference in Lebanon, TN, just outside of Nashville.
Sex is inherently political. What you do in the privacy of the bedroom never stays there. It always impacts the world. A culture is either built on the fruitfulness of a godly union between one man and one woman, or else it dies from self-inflicted fruitlessness and sexual rebellion against God. Worldview matters, the nuclear family matters, definitions of male and female matter, godly children matter. Our sexual choices and values are building and cultivating a particular kind of public square. Join us in Lebanon, TN with Pastor Douglas Wilson, Voddie Baucham, Doug TenNapel, David Bahnsen, and then on Saturday will have 9 SWAT talks with over 20 speakers arming you to go out into the world to take dominion with your gifts and abilities.

Trump to sue Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Twitter’s Jack Dorsey, Google’s Sundar Pichai
According to American Military News:
“Former President Donald Trump announced class-action lawsuits against Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Wednesday after being kicked off multiple social media platforms earlier this year.
“We’re asking the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida to order an immediate halt to social media companies illegal, shameful censorship of the American people and that’s exactly what they are doing,” Trump said Wednesday in a press conference.
“We’re demanding an end to the shadow-banning, a stop to the silencing, and a stop to the blacklisting, banishing and canceling that you know so well,” Trump continued. “Our case will prove this censorship is unlawful, it’s unconstitutional, and it’s completely un-American.”
The America First Policy Institute, a nonprofit created by former Trump administration personnel earlier this year, will reportedly support Trump’s legal efforts. The class action lawsuit allows Trump to represent a larger group of people who he claims have been censored as a result of biased policies.
“This is going to be a very, very important game changer for our country,” Mr. Trump said. “It will be a pivotal battle in the defense of the First Amendment, and in the end I’m confident that we will achieve a historic victory for American freedom and at the same time freedom of speech.”
Mr. Trump was banned from Twitter, Facebook and Instagram in the wake of the January 6 storming of Capitol Hill while he was still President of the United States.
Twitter permanently suspended then-President Trump’s account due to alleged “risk of further incitement of violence.”
“This determination is based on a number of factors, including:
President Trump’s statement that he will not be attending the Inauguration is being received by a number of his supporters as further confirmation that the election was not legitimate,” Twitter said in a statement.
The statement continued, “The use of the words “American Patriots” to describe some of his supporters is also being interpreted as support for those committing violent acts at the US Capitol.”
Also in January, Facebook suspended Trump from its platform because, at the time, the “risks of allowing the President” to post on Facebook for the remainder of his term “are simply too great,” CEO Mark Zuckerberg asserted.
During the press conference, Mr. Trump was asked how he plans to fight the argument that Facebook, Twitter and Google are private companies, Trump echoed earlier comments from his team asserting they are no longer private companies due to their “collusion” with government entities.
“Well, they say that they’re private but they’re no longer private,” Trump said.
Pam Boni, fmr. Florida attorney general and member of America First Policy constitutional litigation team, explained, “When you have Mark Zuckerberg and others being called in front of Congress and being coerced and being questioned by all these congressmen, and then you also have Mark Zuckerberg emailing with Dr. Fauci about COVID…a private company is communicating with the federal government and parts of that were redacted,” she continued. “[The social media companies] are not immune [under Section 230] anymore.””
Pfizer vaccine less effective against delta variant
According to the Hill:
“A study conducted in Israel found that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is somewhat less effective against the more infectious delta variant, though it was still found to be effective at preventing severe illness.
As The Wall Street Journal reports, the Pfizer vaccine protected 64 percent of immunized people during an outbreak of the delta variant, a sharp drop when compared to the 94 percent of people it had previously been shown to protect. However, the shot was still 94 percent effective at preventing severe illness, a slight decrease from the 97 percent that were kept from experiencing severe illness previously.
The data for the study was collected from June 6 through early July, according to officials from Israel’s Health Ministry. The data and the methodology of the study was not released, according to the Journal.”

Assassins Kill President of Haiti in Midnight Home Invasion
““Around one (1) o’clock in the morning, on the night of Tuesday July 6 to Wednesday July 7, 2021, a group of unidentified individuals, some of whom spoke in Spanish, attacked the private residence of the President of the Republic and thus mortally wounded the Head of State,” Joseph’s statement to the Haitian public read, according to the national outlet Haiti Libre. “Wounded by gunshot, the First Lady is receiving the care that her situation requires.”
Joseph referred to the killing as “odious, inhuman and barbaric” and urged the public to remain calm. The statement also claimed the situation was “under control.” Authorities shut down Port-au-Prince’s international airport to prevent suspects from fleeing and have prevented planes arriving there on flights that left before the assassination from landing.
In addition to First Lady Martine Moïse, one of the president’s children was present for the attack but reportedly uninjured. Moïse was 53 years old.
Moïse took over for predecessor Michel Martelly in the aftermath of the chaotic 2015 elections as a placeholder president. Moïse insisted that his term began in 2017, thus making him legitimate president through 2022, but faced opposition who claimed that his term had expired by this year and branded him a dictator. Opposition leaders attempted to install a parallel president, 72-year-old judge Joseph Mécène, in February, but Mécène has not received any international recognition and has not made any significant public pronouncements since allegedly becoming president.
In addition to pressure from opposition leaders to step down, Moïse faced mounting demands from Haitian business leaders to consider establishing relations with China. Haiti is one of the few remaining nations in the world to recognize Taiwan’s sovereignty and maintain close ties to that country. Under the Communist Party’s “One China” policy, Beijing does not maintain any diplomatic relations with countries that recognize Taiwan. In an interview with Taiwan News published Wednesday, Haiti’s ambassador to Taiwan asserted that Moïse valued the bilateral relationship and had no intention of accepting lucrative Chinese loan offers to abandon Haiti’s relationship with Taiwan.
Joseph, the prime minister, was scheduled to soon leave his post after serving three months in office. Moïse announced the appointment of his seventh prime minister, Ariel Henry, on Monday. Joseph congratulated Henry and had not indicated any conflict existed between the two.”
Newsom needs to halt transgender mixing of prison populations, women advocates say
According to Yahoo News:
“A California law allowing transgender inmates to pick the prison gender of their choice has come under fire from a women’s rights group citing abuse of females by men.
In a letter to Gov. Gavin Newsom, the Women’s Liberation Front accused the state of violating the constitutional rights of incarcerated women by allowing men into their living quarters to “prey on women.” Since the law took effect on Jan. 1, WLF has received numerous complaints of assaulted, abused, and traumatized women at the hands of male inmates transferred into their prisons, WoLF Legal Director Lauren Adams said.
“We are working with a woman who was punched in the face so hard by a new transfer that she couldn’t chew for three days. He was taken away and released back in a different yard with no restrictions,” Adams said. “He was her cellmate. She had to sleep with him.”
Other women have been sexually abused in the past and must now contend with nude men sharing communal showers, Adams said.
“One woman went in there with two naked men showering who still had penises,” Adams added. “It was incredibly traumatic and scary, to know for, [possibly], the rest of their lives they are going to be subjected to this.”
The state currently has 273 transfer requests; 266 are from people housed at male institutions requesting to be transferred to a female institution, and seven are from people at female institutions requesting to be transferred to a male institution, according to the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. California has 1,286 inmates identified as transgender or nonbinary.
Currently, 24 male prisoners have been transferred to female institutions. WoLF theorizes that many men transferring into women’s prisons are not transgender but are just trying to escape their current living situation.”
Pennsylvania GOP state Sen. Mastriano announces investigation into 2020 election results
According to Just the News:
“ennsylvania state Sen. Doug Mastriano announced Wednesday that he will lead an investigation into the state’s election system, saying it will “go a long way to restore trust.”
In his capacity as chairperson of the state Senate’s Intergovernmental Operations Committee, Mastriano sent letters to Pennsylvania counties requesting information needed for his investigation.
“A forensic investigation of our election results and processes for the 2020 General Election and the 2021 primary will go a long way to restore trust in our system,” Mastriano, a Republican, said in a press release. “Voting is the fundamental right of all citizens. We should continually look for ways to improve the voting process to ensure every voice is heard.”
Pennsylvania follows Arizona in efforts to examine the results of last year’s election results, amid concerns about voting irregularities and fraud, and to try to ensure systems are secure for future balloting.
Much of the concern about fraud centers on mail-in ballots. In 2020, there were 2.7 million mail-in ballots cast, compared to 263,000 in 2016.
Mastriano also said the state’s Supreme Court changed its guidances and rulings on mail-in ballots, just days before the 2020 elections, which perhaps left the system more vulnerable to fraud or other voter miscount.
However, Mastriano make clear the intent of the probe is not to try to overturn the results of the 2020 election.”
