    Surge Summary: As Leftists undercut America’s military preparedness in the name of “woke” causes and other favored “culture war” matters, normal Americans – and the U.S. Supreme Court – are pushing back.

    by Robert Knight

    Did you know that debating issues in Congress is part of the culture war and is bad for democracy?

    That’s what the Washington Post (motto: “Democracy Dies in Darkness”) strongly implied in its front-page story after the Republican-led House approved the National Defense Authorization Act in a 219-210 party-line vote.

    The bill authorizes an $886 billion defense budget and rolls back some of the Democrats’ schemes aimed at turning America into a Marxist version of Sodom and Gomorrah. These include tax-subsidized travel for abortions, transgender “care” (drugs, surgeries) and instructors who browbeat the troops with transgender ideology and diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) propaganda.

    The bill’s passage, the Post said, came after “an acrimonious battle … that reduced the chamber of America’s democracy into a battleground in its increasingly polarized culture wars.”

    Remember, under their rules, the “chamber of America’s democracy” is supposed to march in lockstep, not engage in debate.

    The Left’s idea of democracy is a centralized, one-party state where everyone must salute the Pride flag, embrace socialist economics and trash “White Supremacists” whose ranks include Hispanics, Asians, Blacks and Native Americans who hold conservative values.

    The term “culture war” isn’t aired when Democrats brazenly assault the natural order, only when there’s resistance. Any ground the Left gains is automatically considered settled and beyond debate.

    “Why would Republicans want the military to prepare for real wars when fighting culture wars is so much more fun?” asks Post columnist Catherine Rampell. She’s especially torqued that the defense bill would ban Pride flags and require military-run schools to remove “radical gender ideology” books.

    If I read her correctly, the way to prepare to fight “real wars” is to saturate children on military bases with LGBTQ and climate change propaganda, bring in drag queens and indoctrinate service members in the latest woke ideologies.

    Anyone trying to undo this mess and allow the armed forces to focus instead on defending the country is somehow weakening the military.

    The Post’s “news” story warns that Republicans are not only “restricting military personnel’s access to reproductive care and diversity protections” but are “imperiling lawmakers’ mandate to set major national security priorities.”

    Really? Run for your lives!

    House Speaker Kevin McCarthy dismissed Democrats’ outrage, quipping, “We don’t want Disneyland to train our military.”

    Indeed not. Disney went woke long ago and shows no signs of slowing down despite a string of box office bombs, a drop in attendance at its theme parks and an estimated $1.5 billion loss in its streaming service. The company, whose stock price plummeted 44 percent in 2022, is slashing $5.5 billion in costs and laying off 7,000 employees worldwide.

    By the way, Disney acquired “Sound of Freedom” in 2019 only to shelve it before Angel Studios was able to secure the rights and get it into theaters this past July 4th weekend. Starring Jim Caviezel and Mira Sorvino, the thriller about former Homeland Security agent Tim Ballard’s daring rescues of trafficked children has racked up more than $100 million in ticket sales in only three weeks’ release.

    The Democrats are right about one thing. There is a culture war raging in America. They touched it off, expecting little resistance. Now there’s serious pushback, and they don’t like it one bit.

    When they’re not trying to bully parents or prevent the military from shucking woke madness, leftists are assailing the U.S. Supreme Court. Over the last two years, the Court has issued multiple rulings that have set Democrats’ hair on fire.

    They ruled in favor of Harold Shurtleff, who was prevented from flying a Christian flag at Boston City Hall where dozens of others had flown without incident, including the Pride flag.

    In another First Amendment decision, the Court said Washington State high school football coach Joe Kennedy could pray quietly after games at the 50-yard line (and not lose his job.)

    They also ruled 9-0 that Gerald Groff, a Christian postal employee, could not be forced to work on the Sabbath (Sunday) just because the cash-strapped U.S. Postal Service began delivering for Amazon.

    They ruled that in Colorado, Christian designer Lorie Smith could not be forced to create a website for a same-sex wedding. This expanded their earlier ruling in the Masterpiece Cakeshop case.

    The Court also rejected the Biden Administration’s totalitarian COVID-19 shot mandate and Mr. Biden’s $400 billion student loan payoff scheme. And the Court slapped the EPA for exceeding its mandate and employing sweeping new powers without congressional approval.

    Finally, there was the big enchilada – the Dobbs ruling that struck down Roe v Wade.

    By this time, Democrats had launched all sorts of trumped up allegations against the Court and Justice Clarence Thomas in particular. The Supreme Court, the Dems say, needs lots of oversight and new rules to curb conflicts of interest.

    Nonsense. Democrats had no problem when Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan refused to recuse themselves from the 2015 Obergefell case creating a new “right” to same-sex marriage even though they had themselves officiated at same-sex ceremonies.

    Yes, there’s a culture war raging because the side of sanity is fighting back. We had better hope and pray that it continues until the ship of state is righted and liberty prevails across the fruited plain.

    Crooked: What Really Happened in the 2020 Election and How to Stop the Fraud

    By Robert Knight

    160 pages, fully footnoted and indexed. (2022 D. James Kennedy Ministries.) Available at the roberthknight.com website store.

    In 2020, the Left in America seized control of all three elected branches of the federal government. We have been paying for it ever since. But was the election fair and honest?

    We are told every day that we cannot even ask that question lest we be “cancelled” as “election deniers.”

    Yet, there is massive evidence that vote fraud, unconstitutional election law rigging and Big Tech manipulation yielded a pre-determined result. The media, which should be shining a light on all this, instead labels all such suggestions as “baseless,” “falsehoods,” or simply “false.” Instead of defending freedom of speech and free inquiry, the press vilifies anyone stepping outside their narrative.

    For more than 244 years, America’s Christian culture and its continued influence have combined with limits on government imposed by the Constitution to make the United States the freest, most prosperous nation in history. But forces have been at work for decades to “liberate” us from self-government.

    This book exposes the many threats to free elections posed by un-American, socialist activists. But it’s also meant to inspire patriotic Americans to resist intimidation and to restore limited government under God.
