A CNN editor-at large published a hilarious op-ed Friday claiming that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 85-years young, is the “face of the Trump resistance.”
“With the Democratic Party largely leaderless and the 2020 presidential primary race still a long way off, one person has served as a rallying point for dispirited Democrats: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg,” said Chris Cillizza.
At least Cillizza is self-aware. The Democrats are in fact leaderless as they continue to trip over themselves, trying to decide whether they want to embrace their hard-leftist youth like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, or whether they want to be the party of dying globalists, a la House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
But Cillizza also tacitly admitted that Ginsburg is not an impartial justice, but rather a Democrat activist in a robe. Unsurprisingly, Democrats are happy to co-opt sacred institutions for their political furtherance.
Of course, America already knew that. Ginsburg’s first act of resistance was her public denunciation of President Donald J. Trump’s candidacy.
“I can’t imagine what this place would be — I can’t imagine what the country would be — with Donald Trump as our president,” Ginsburg told the New York Times in a July 2016 interview. “For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be — I don’t even want to contemplate that. He has no consistency about him. He says whatever comes into his head at the moment. He really has an ego.”
Cillizza pointed to Ginsburg’s absence from Trump’s 2018 State of the Union speech as a second example of Ginsburg’s valiant fight against Trump on behalf of the Democrats.
“When Ginsburg skipped Trump’s 2018 State of the Union speech, Democrats celebrated — touting it as a sign of her unwillingness to bend to the domineering President,” Cillizza said.
But Ginsburg did not skip the speech in defiance of Trump as CNN suggested. Rather, she had a previous commitment to speak at the Roger Williams School of Law in Rhode Island.
Those two acts of Trump “resistance” combined with the fact that Ginsburg publicly stated that she wants to serve on the Court for another five year (still not long enough to last through a second Trump term) were enough to make Ginsburg the face of the resistance.
That is all it took.
“Though she has yet to return to her overt and public criticism of Trump, Democrats take moments like her skipping of the State of the Union or her insistence that she will serve on the court until she is 90 (and, theoretically, someone other than Trump is President) as acts of defiance,” Cillizza said. “At a time when so few people, in Democrats’ minds, will stand up to Trump’s bullying style of leadership, a tiny octogenarian woman has stepped into the void and seemed to say: I’m not afraid of him at all.”
The level of Trump derangement is indescribable. In the face of such “resistance” it is no wonder he keeps winning.

New York Times Claims Churches are ‘Major Source’ of COVID-19 Infections…Despite Accounting for Only 0.02% of Cases
This is a war on Christianity.
The New York Times published an article on Wednesday that claimed, “Churches Were Eager to Reopen, Now They Are a Major Source of Coronavirus Infections.”
“More than 650 coronavirus cases have been linked to nearly 40 churches and religious events across the United States since the beginning of the pandemic,” the Times claims, “with many of them erupting over the last month as Americans resumed their pre-pandemic activities.”
Reason Magazine performed an analysis of the claims made by the Times and found they were complete bunk. Only 0.02% of cases have come from churches, an infinitesimal percentage, but the fake news targets churches while giving a pass to leftists who are rioting and looting nationwide.
“The number of confirmed COVID-19 infections in the United States is now 3.1 million, meaning the church-related cases identified by the Times account for 0.02 percent of the total. On the face of it, that does not seem like “a major source of coronavirus infections.” And there are something like 385,000 churches in the U.S., so the ones tied to COVID-19 infections represent around 0.01 percent of Christian congregations,” Reason Magazine wrote.
Reason Magazine noted that the article from the Times is bigoted against Christianity and serves as propaganda against religious worship. The Times claims that COVID-19 “has struck churches that reopened cautiously with face masks and social distancing in the pews, as well as some that defied lockdowns and refused to heed new limits on numbers of worshipers.”
“The issue is whether churches can reopen with an acceptable level of risk by following the same guidelines that apply to other settings where people gather for extended periods of time. By implying that precautions don’t really matter, the Times is sending a dangerous message to Americans, many of whom are already weary of social distancing rules and disinclined to wear masks,” Reason Magazine wrote.
Big League Politics has reported on how Christian pastors have been charged with crimes for holding services during COVID-19 mass hysteria:
Another Christian pastor is being charged with crimes for holding church services during the coronavirus lockdown.
Mark Anthony Spell, a Central, La. pastor, is receiving six misdemeanor charges for disobeying Gov. John Bel Edwards’ emergency shutdown edicts after he held church services this past weekend.
“Over the last two weeks I have worked with the sheriff, state police, the state fire marshal, Reverend Tony Perkins, and others to address this matter outside of legal action. Mr. Spell made his intentions to continue to violate the law clear. Instead of showing the strength and resilience of our community during this difficult time, Mr. Spell has chosen to embarrass us for his own self-promotion,” said Central Police Chief Roger Corcoran, who issued the misdemeanor summons to Spell.
“Mr. Spell will have his day in court where he will be held responsible for his reckless and irresponsible decisions that endangered the health of his congregation and our community. This is not an issue over religious liberty, and it’s not about politics. We are facing a public health crisis and expect our community’s leaders to set a positive example and follow the law,” he added.
Spell has allegedly convened six unlawful church services at his Life Tabernacle Church hosting more individuals at his worship proceedings than what is allowed by the state. East Baton Rouge District Attorney Hillar Moore said Spell is receiving a misdemeanor count for every time he allegedly violated the edict. They will not charge everyone who gathered unlawfully at the church but will attempt to make an example of Spell because “encouraged others to violate” the law.
The Left has used COVID-19 to punish Christians, as they exploit the crisis to punish hurt enemies and gain illicit control.
