Actor Laurence Fox creates new political party to fight the woke Left

Something is happening in Britain that isn’t in the United States.

Prominent Brits are saying they’re sick of the “woke” culture of the Left.

First, it was journalist, TV personality and self-identified liberal Piers Morgan who, on the Ben Shapiro Snow last August, launched a stinging critique of the contemporary Left, calling them “unbearable”.

Then, at 2020 Golden Globes awards in January, comedian and host Ricky Jervais lambasted the Hollywood crowd for their arrogance and hypocrisy.

The latest is actor Laurence Fox (you may know him as Inspector Hathaway in the Lewis TV series that was aired on PBS Masterpiece Theater).

Fox became an instant fave of conservatives when he said on BBC’s Question Time last January that Meghan Markle is not a victim of racism (see “Harry & Meghan Markle lose in duel with the Queen”), followed by Fox appearing on the cover of The Sunday Times to tell the world that he does not “date woke women”.

Note: Urban Dictionary defines “wokeness” as “self-righteousness masquerading as enlightenment” and “being constantly offended”.

For saying that, and wearing a MAGA cap for a media interview, Fox was vilified. See “Feminists see something very sinister in men who don’t want to date ‘woke’ women”.

Now, Fox has started a new political party called Reclaim, to fight the woke Left.

In an October 6 interview with Spiked, Fox explains why:

Fox: I don’t feel either of the two main parties are addressing the issues at all. I feel Labour is actively swallowing critical race theory. It is actively making culture worse. You have Keir Starmer literally taking the knee, and then metaphorically taking the knee with what he said in terms of structural inequality and racism, and in terms of seeing racism everywhere, which I think is one of the most false and divisive things that a politician can do to try to garner votes. And then, obviously, you would have expected the Conservatives to be very hot on these issues. Things like the right to speak freely and think freely and not have your thoughts policed are very personal issues to a lot of people. But the Conservatives don’t seem to be taking it on board.

There are many brilliant movements and pressure groups around that do fantastic work, such as the Free Speech Union, the Academy of Ideas and Don’t Divide Us, which are all fantastic. But how do you really make politicians sit up and listen? I believe you do that through the ballot box.

One thing that has struck me is the viciousness with which the left bullies people of all kinds for having what are essentially very moderate opinions. Aside from questions concerning perjury, laws on speech must not go further than stopping incitement to violence. But that is not what is happening at the moment….

We are switching the whole judicial system on its head. People are being tried by social media, and that can have really awful effects, such as what happened with Caroline Flack. I feel it has escalated beyond the point where we can ignore it….

I am aiming to appeal across party lines. I don’t need to be politically affiliated to want to promote an open public space through full protection of the fundamental freedoms of speech, expression, thought, association and academic inquiry, and to stand in opposition to laws and other measures which undermine those freedoms.

spiked: Are you worried that getting involved in the ‘wrong’ side of the culture war will damage your career?

Fox: I have certainly been told that it has had a very profound effect on my acting career….

If you risk making yourself unemployable by having the wrong view, I can understand why people would just parrot the views that are accepted – especially those who have children.

I feel like I have no option but to take this thing forward, because someone has to do it, and I seem to be well-placed to do it in terms of my platform, my profile and my views, which I think are actually pretty moderate.

spiked: How have members of the public responded to the party so far?

Fox: We have had so many positive reactions. Ten thousand people have registered on our website, and we set up a Twitter account a couple of days ago which has 15,000 followers already. I get stopped in the street relentlessly, and people thank me for doing it. I get a stack of letters every week, and endless messages of support, all of which is encouraging.

I think these issues bother ordinary people much more than those with a profile. The right to communicate and to be able to tell your own story affects everybody.

We need a high-profile person with Laurence Fox’s courage here in the U.S.

Women bark like dogs against Trump supporters

On  October 3, 2020, supporters of President Trump held in street rally in Claremont California.

A group of enraged Biden supporters protested by barking and growling like dogs.

You tell me if this isn’t demonic possession.

Next, they’ll be spewing green bile and spinning their heads.

Ann Loy, a commenter on the YouTube video, says Demonrats acted like this in every Trump rally she’s attended:

Every Trump rally I’ve been to they act like this,… Like caged rabid dogs who missed their rabies vaccines! I was at this rally in Claremont, by the way! And yes, the behavior you see in this video of the rally I was at was the same behavior I saw at the other seven rallies I was at!

Note that it’s all women doing the growling.

I truly believe pro-abortion, a grave sin, is a portal to demonic possession.

Pelosi 2.0 – Biden says you’ll have to elect me to find out what my policy positions are

The utter arrogance of Democrats.

Do you remember in 2020, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi telling the American people that we “must pass the [Obamacare] bill so that you can find out what is in it?”.

Ten years later, it’s the Pelosi bamboozle all over again.

This time it’s the Democrats’ presidential nominee Joe Biden effectively telling the American people we would have to elect him to find out what all his policy positions are.

Recall that a week ago, during the first 2020 presidential campaign debate, moderator Chris Wallace pressed Biden on whether he would pack the Supreme Court by increasing the number of justices from the traditional 9 justices (since 1869), as a way to boost the number of “Progressives”.

Biden flatly refused to take a stance on the issue, saying: “Whatever position I take on that, that’ll become the issue.”

When President Trump pressed him on it, Biden acknowledged that he had no intention of giving a straight answer. (Fox News)

Two days later, on October 1, 2020, during one of Biden’s press conferences, a reporter followed up on the question about packing the Supreme Court. She said: “Voters want to know what you would do as president.”

Biden answered: “That’s exactly what they want me to talk about so we don’t.”

In other words, Biden is saying the same thing Pelosi had said ten years ago:

“You American sheeple will have to vote for me in order to find out what I’ll do as President.”

But millions of Americans simply don’t care. They’ll vote for Biden no matter what he says or refuses to say.

Creation: Pufferfish constructs intricate design with his fins

The Pufferfish or blowfish (Tetraodontidae) range in size from the 1-inch-long dwarf or pygmy puffer to the freshwater giant puffer, which can grow to more than 2 feet in length.

Somehow, the male Pufferfish knows how to create, with his little fins, intricate and simply exquisite designs in sand to attract female pufferfish.  (H/t Elizabeth)

How does the pufferfish, laboring at the bottom of the sea, manage to construct this perfectly symmetrical design, the beauty of which can only be seen and appreciated from above?

But biologists tell us the pufferfish somehow developed his ability to create these designs by mere happenstance, otherwise called evolution. [Eyeroll]

The Pufferfish’s clumsy swimming style makes them vulnerable to predators. But the Pufferfish have developed three ways to repel predators:

  1. By puffing up into a virtually inedible ball several times their normal size via quickly ingesting huge amounts of water or air.
  2. Some species have spines on their skin to make them even less palatable.
  3. Almost all pufferfish contain tetrodotoxin, a poison that’s 1,200 times more toxic than cyanide, which makes pufferfish foul tasting and deadly to other fish as well as humans. There is enough toxin in one pufferfish to kill 30 adult humans, and there is no known antidote.

Perversely, it is precisely the pufferfish’s toxin that makes them, called fugu, considered a delicacy in Japan, where the fish is extremely expensive and only prepared by trained, licensed chefs who know that one bad cut means almost certain death for a customer. In fact, many such deaths occur annually.

Writing in 2017, a contributor to Quora, who lived in Tokyo and was treated by his professor to fugu in a restaurant, said a meal of fugucosts around 6000 yen [US$57] per head including small desert and sake,” but sometimes “the price can reach up to several thousand yens in auctions”.

Sunday Devotional: Have no anxiety at all

Philippians 4:6-9

Brothers and sisters:
Have no anxiety at all, but in everything,
by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving,
make your requests known to God.
Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding
will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, brothers and sisters,
whatever is true, whatever is honorable,
whatever is just, whatever is pure,
whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious,
if there is any excellence
and if there is anything worthy of praise,
think about these things.
Keep on doing what you have learned and received
and heard and seen in me.
Then the God of peace will be with you.

May the peace and love of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you,

Pro-abort female attorney becomes a Satanist because Ruth Bader Ginsburg died

5 days ago, I posted on the inhuman, demonic screams when President Trump paid respect to the corpse of Ruth Bader Ginsburg at the Supreme Court.

Here’s more evidence that the battle we find ourselves in is not just a political or ideological battle, it is a spiritual and supernatural battle, against the dark forces of Hell itself.

A pro-abort female attorney, who calls herself Jamie Smith (likely a pseudonym), is so distraught by the death of Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg — who favored decriminalizing pedophilia and child sex trafficking — that she became a Satanist.

Below are excerpts from Smith’s essay, “The Death Of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Pushed Me To Join The Satanic Temple,” Huffington Post, Sept. 24, 2020:

I am a 40-something attorney and mother who lives in a quiet neighborhood with a yard and a garage full of scooters and soccer balls. I often walk with my children to get ice cream and spend weekends hiking through a national park. I am not the type of person who would normally consider becoming a Satanist, but these are not normal times….

When Justice Ginsburg died, I knew immediately that action was needed on a scale we have not seen before. Our democracy has become so fragile that the loss of one of the last guardians of common sense and decency in government less than two months before a pivotal election has put our civil and reproductive rights in danger like never before. And, so, I have turned to Satanism. 

Members of the Satanic Temple do not believe in the supernatural or superstition. In the same way that some Unitarians and some Jews do not believe in God, Satanic Temple members do not worship Satan and most are atheists. They are not affiliated in any way with the Church of Satan. Instead, the Satanic Temple uses the devil as a symbol of rebellion.

Just like other faiths, the Satanic Temple has a code that their members believe in deeply and use to guide their lives. These Seven Fundamental Tenets include that “one should strive to act with compassion and empathy toward all creatures in accordance with reason,” that “the struggle for justice is an ongoing and necessary pursuit that should prevail over laws and institutions,” and that “one’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone.”

Reading through the Seven Tenets, I was struck by how closely they aligned with the unwritten code I had used to try to guide my own life for several years. I realized, happily, that these were my people and that I had been a Satanist for several years without even knowing it. When Justice Ginsburg’s death suddenly made combating the threats to reproductive rights and a government free from religious interference more urgent, I knew it was time to join them and support their conceptual and legal battles.

Even before Ginsburg’s death, the Supreme Court was unwilling to provide adequate protection for a woman’s right to choose and to control her body. The court was unwilling to keep church and state separate. Now, without her voice of reason on the court ― let alone her vote ― Roe v. Wade is in imminent danger of being overturned not based on legal arguments or scientific reasoning, but because of religious objections to what is a safe and necessary procedure for the women who seek it out after discussion with their physician. Ginsburg’s replacement is all but certain to be vehemently anti-choice, with one of the top contenders belonging to a sect that actually used the term “handmaid” to refer to some women until the popularity of the TV series “The Handmaid’s Tale” gave the term negative connotations….

The Satanic Temple hopes to appear before the Supreme Court in a case challenging a Missouri abortion law that requires those seeking to terminate their pregnancy to first receive materials asserting that their abortion would end the life of a separate, unique person….

This is an organization I want standing up for my rights and for my daughters’. While I support more mainstream groups like the American Civil Liberties Union and Americans United for Church and State, my research has shown that the Satanic Temple is truly in line with my beliefs about protecting our First Amendment rights and fighting laws that promote or are based on religious doctrine and that it is willing to use radical, creative and yet legally sound strategies to make its case….

We need to think outside the box to challenge what is coming and what is already here. The Satanic Temple is already doing that, and by becoming one of its members, I believe I have joined a community of people who will stop at nothing to safeguard my family’s rights ― and all of our rights ― when they are at their most vulnerable.

Jamie Smith is an attorney and mother who cares about civil rights. She can be reached at jamiesmithwrites@gmail.com.

If Smith thinks Satanic Temple is not about Satan, then she’s deeply deluded. But then, sins obscure not just our souls, but also our ability to see, recognize and discern evil.

And whatever the lies “Jamie Smith” tells herself, abortion is not a noble “civil right” but a grave sin — the intentional and deliberate killing of an innocent human life.

Today is our Guardian Angels’ feast day!

Today is the feast day of our Guardian Angels!

A 2007 Harris poll found that 74% of U.S. adults believed in angels.

How do we know that each of us has a guardian angel? Because Jesus tells us so!

“See that you despise not one of these little ones: for I say to you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.” -Matthew 18:10

The word “angel,” in Greek is angelos, in Hebrew is malach, in Arabic is mala’ika– which all mean “messenger.”

Angels are incorporeal (without body, material form or substance) spiritual beings who can assume bodily form. They act as messengers and intermediaries between God and humanity. St. Augustine said that although angels are defined by their function as messengers or message-bearers, their activities are not limited to just this function. Messenger is one of their functions, not their nature.

St. Thomas Aquinas maintained that each angel is unique, a species unto itself — truly a mind-boggling idea. (J.R.R. Tolkien, a devout Catholic, probably had angels in mind when he fashioned the Ents, who are each a species unto itself.) That means each angel is truly an individual, with his own personality and quirks. This may explain why some guardian angels are pro-active, while others seem not to be.

Major philosophers — such as the great medieval theologian Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274), René Descartes (1596-1650), John Locke (1632-1704), and most recently, the American philosopher Mortimer Adler (1902-2001) — offered compelling reasoning for the existence of angels. (For the conversion of Adler, a Jew, see “A philosopher-pagan comes home: The conversion of Mortimer Adler“.)

Theologians maintain there is a hierarchy of angels, their belief stemming from allusions in both the Old and New Testaments (Genesis 3:24; Isaiah 6:1-7; Ezekiel 1, 10; Romans 8:38; Ephesians 1:21, 3:10, 6:12; Colossians 1:16, 2:10, 2:15) to “seraphim,” “cherubim,” “thrones,” “dominions,” “mights,” “powers” and “principalities” in the “heavenly places.”

Dionysius the Areopagite and St. Thomas Aquinas delineated three hierarchies of angels, and three orders within each hierarchy, totaling nine orders in all:

  • 1st hierarchy: Seraphim, Cherubim, Thrones.
  • 2nd hierarchy: Dominions, Virtues, Powers.
  • 3rd hierarchy: Principalities, Archangels, Angels.

Of the nine angelic orders, five are sent by God for external ministry among bodily creatures, as indicated by their names of Virtues, Powers, Principalities, Archangels, and Angels—all of which refer to some kind of administrative or executive office. Of these five orders, only the last three minister to human beings (which implies that the other two orders minister to non-human bodily creatures, like animals?):

  • Principalities are in charge of the whole of humanity.
  • Archangels minister to nations — their leaders and those persons whom God tasks with special work to do on Earth.
  • Angels, the last order, are God’s messengers to and guardians of individual human beings.

According to St. Thomas Aquinas, a guardian Angel is appointed by God’s loving providence to each human being from the moment of birth because “the dignity of human souls is great.”

Throughout the lives of “changeable and fallible” human beings, their guardian angels assist them toward goodness. Although the guardians never fail or forsake their human charges, they eschew interfering with Divine providence or with our free will to commit sin, if we so choose, and to suffer punishment.

When I see a drunk or derelict sleeping on a bus bench or curled up in a street corner, I can’t help but wonder how very sad their guardian angels must be. Imagine what it must be like to be the guardian angel of a serial killer . . . .

In Summa Theologica, St. Thomas also wrote that at the end of a human being’s earthly life, the guardian angel of the virtuous person will be replaced with an angelic companion because the guardian’s mission will have been successfully discharged. What a wondrous thought — that our guardian Angel who has known and loved us all our lives will be our friend and companion through all eternity!

But the wicked in Hell “will have a fallen angel [or demon] to punish him” for eternity. Let that thought sink in . . . .

My husband, James, who passed away a year and a month ago, was blessed to have encountered his guardian angel (see “We have no nurse named Benjamin“). James spent the three years before he passed in a quality assisted care facility where he continued to write each day, and succeeded in publishing three books. He said he felt his angel’s presence and companionship all the time. There were times when he almost fell but didn’t, propped up by an invisible hand.

How his angel, Benjamin, must love him.

I believe James finally saw his angel face-to-face, and the two are wandering the Universe together.

Just because we can’t see them doesn’t mean our guardian angels aren’t with us all the time. In fact, there are many stories of angelic encounters and assistance. See, for example:

My days are so busy with writing and family-, house- and garden-work that the only time when my mind is at rest is when I walk in the hills. On one such walk some years ago, I talked to my guardian angel and humbly asked him to show me he’s there. Instantly, I felt his presence walking alongside me, on my right. I can’t tell you what he looks like (he is a bodiless spirit after all), but what I felt was his staggeringly-profound LOVE — a love that is unconditional and wholly unearned, the depths of which I have never, and will never, experienced from any human.


Here’s a simple prayer to our guardian Angels, by St. Bonaventure (1221-1274):

Angel of God, my guardian dear,
to whom His Love commits me here,
ever this day be at my side,
to light and guard,
to rule and guide. Amen.

Some questions to ask yourself:

  1. How is my relationship with my guardian angel?
  2. Do I listen to him?
  3. Do I bid him good day in the morning?
  4. Do I tell him: “Guard me while I sleep”?
  5. Do I speak with him?
  6. Do I ask for his advice?

Talk to your Guardian Angel!

He loves you very, very much, more than you’ll ever know.

Tell him you love him.

And thank your Guardian Angel today and every day — for watching over and protecting you, and for loving you in spite of ourselves.
