Many years after Democrat-affiliated predator Jeffrey Epstein was convicted of sex crimes, Conservative Inc. was shilling for the man in their most hollowed publication, praising his business acumen and his record of philanthropy to the sciences.
The National Review, the ‘Never Trump’ headquarters heading up to the 2016 presidential election, released a gushing profile of Epstein in 2013, written by Christina Galbraith, who was listed as a science writer by the publication but was in actuality Epstein’s publicist.
“The study of evolution is always moving, but nowhere has it been livelier than in Brattle Square, where, ten years ago, a financier named Jeffrey Epstein set up the Program for Evolutionary Dynamics with a $30 million gift to the university, $6.5 million of which was a current-use gift to the PED,” Galbraith wrote about the generosity of her boss.
She noted that Epstein helped fund scientists such as “Stephen Hawking, Marvin Minsky, Eric Lander, George Church, and Nobel laureate physicists Gerard ’t Hooft, David Gross, and Frank Wilczek” to promote his record of philanthropy. He is presented as a pioneer, rather than a predator, by the William F. Buckley-founded magazine.
Going through the writing, it becomes rather obvious that it was written by an author with much invested in whitewashing Epstein’s record. The underlying scientific basis of the article is just a veneer so the alleged virtuosity of this sex criminal can be promoted.
“Epstein is first and foremost a problem solver, interested in strategy and intellectual puzzles,” Galbraith wrote, before adding that he “has given thoughtfully to countless organizations that help educate underprivileged children, notably in the U.S. Virgin Islands, where his foundation is based.”
Galbraith did mention Epstein’s scandals, but only as a quick aside before going back into promoting the seedy financier and his contributions to scientific achievement.
“And while Jeffrey Epstein remains an obscure figure, tarnished now by a series of scandals involving underage women, one of which led to an 18-month jail sentence, he is nonetheless the talented catalyst, the accelerator of all this medical discovery,” she wrote.
“We took down the piece, and regret publishing it,” National Review editor Rich Lowry said in lieu of his fledgling, irrelevant publication being embarrassed by this news.
According to a New York Times report, HuffPost and Forbes also published similar pro-Epstein puff pieces following his conviction for sex crimes.
The National Review, which has portrayed itself as the principled standard bearer of true conservatism for generations, has shown that they will do public relations for a confirmed left-wing sex predator if it helps their bottom line.
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.
