Data Privacy: The Frontier of Liberty
“Without privacy, we have no liberty.”
At a time when corporate media propagate seeds of divisibility, a new paradigm of discrimination is masquerading among us. The precipice of tyranny we face extends far beyond the hypocrisy of hate speech, military aggression, and global corporation collusion with seemingly all world governments. Today, the biggest threat to human Liberty may be corporate access to personal data combined with a unique digital identifier for every citizen. ” -Gregory Porter, Texas Liberty Council

Sharing with you a post from Wallbuilders.com, January 11, 2021.
For many modern Americans it might be surprising to learn that one of the first national mottos and flags was “an appeal to Heaven.” Where did this phrase originate, and why did the Americans identify themselves with it?
To understand the meaning behind the Pinetree Flag we must go back to John Locke’s influential Second Treatise of Government (1690). In this book, the famed philosopher explains that when a government becomes so oppressive and tyrannical that there no longer remains any legal remedy for citizens, they can appeal to Heaven and then resist that tyrannical government through a revolution. Locke turned to the Bible to explain his argument: (click here to read more)

Featuring: SICHAN SIV
Sichan Siv, international best-selling author of “Golden Bones: An Extraordinary Journey from Hell to Cambodia to a New Life in America”
While the United States battled the Communists of North Vietnam in the 1960s and ’70s, the neighboring country of Cambodia was attacked from within by dictator Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge. The Khmer Rouge imprisoned, enslaved, and murdered the educated and intellectual members of the population, resulting in the harrowing “killing fields”–rice paddies where the harvest yielded nothing but millions of skulls.
Young Sichan Siv–a target since he was a university graduate–was told by his mother to run and “never give up hope!” Captured and put to work in a slave labor camp, Siv knew it was only a matter of time before he would be worked to death–or killed. With a daring escape from a logging truck and a desperate run for freedom through the jungle, including falling into a dreaded pungi pit, Siv finally came upon a colorfully dressed farmer who said, “Welcome to Thailand.”
He spent months teaching English in a refugee camp in Thailand while regaining his strength, eventually Siv was allowed entry into the United States. Upon his arrival in the U.S., Siv kept striving. Eventually rising to become a U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Siv returned with great trepidation to the killing fields of Cambodia in 1992 as a senior representative of the U.S. government. It was an emotionally overwhelming visit.

We have less than a week left to tell Biden not to change the definition of “sex”! For the past 55 days activists have been bombarding the Biden administration with comments defying his radical, incoherent gender ideology.
Over 50,000 comments have been submitted and over 20% of those comments have been Heritage Action activists.
This is a fantastic number and it gives us the momentum we need to keep pressuring the administration to repeal this rule.
Keep going! We have limited time before this rule takes effect. Tell Biden to stop, HERE!
Share this link and spread the word. We need to bring the HEAT!
Thank you for your participation.
