Radio host Michael Savage has called on President Trump to direct Homeland Security to arrest prominent members of Antifa, labeling the organization a “domestic terrorist group”.
During an interview with the American Mirror, Savage said the group should be treated like the new Weather Underground.
“I think they have declared themselves to be a terrorist organization,” said Savage, pointing to a story from last month about how Antifa members strategized how they could carry out “ambushes and assassinations” to further their political agenda.
“They’re absolutely a domestic terrorist group, what else would anyone call them?” asked Savage.
He then called for the Department of Homeland Security to “round up the leadership and arrest them,” adding, “what else do you do, wait for them to kill people?”
Savage warned that the left are “in a revolution” and would continue to enact it by “smearing and destroying anyone who stands in their way — first verbally and then physically.”
“They are absolutely on the warpath. There’s very little opposition,” he added, noting that those on the far-left still revere Communist regimes that engaged in mass executions of political enemies.
Savage is known to be close to Trump and has met him privately on several occasions.
As we reported yesterday, stunning video out of Portland shows leftist Antifa thugs trying to block and direct traffic while threatening anyone who disobeys with violence and calling them “white supremacists”.
Another clip shows irate leftists chasing a driver in his vehicle who then gets out to confront the mob.
It’s to happen Friday at midnight at a variety of locations across the nation, and again every month until Donald Trump is no longer in office.
The rite, requiring a stub of a candle, a pin, salt, matches, a tarot card, a feather and other odds and ends, calls on spirits to ensure President Trump will “fail utterly.” It also includes burning a picture of the commander in chief, visualizing him “blowing apart into dust or ash.”
Participants apparently have the option of using a baby carrot instead of an orange candle.
Among the various spirits invoked are the “demons of the infernal realms.”
There is even a Facebook page networking those who want to participate in the ritual. Some media outlets are also looking to film whatever happens.
It’s not the first time anti-Trump occultists have tried to use black magic against the president.
Still, Christian leaders believe these kinds of spiritual threats should be taken seriously, condemned and countered.
Jan Markell of Olive Tree Ministries said the left’s open embrace of demonic imagery is revealing.
“It shows that the level of hatred against Donald Trump is generated by Satan himself,” she said. “Donald Trump is not a perfect man. But he is trying to stop the runaway freight train of evil that has existed for eight years emanating out of Washington and the Democratic Party.
“The left is mesmerized by issues that tear down and that grieve the heart of God. Donald Trump doesn’t have the power to neutralize these people and their agenda, but he is trying to make significant inroads to stop the tremendous slide to the dark side in America. He has some solid Bible-believing Christians at his side. Together they can make a huge difference and repair some of the damage done by evildoers.”
Markell, featured in the WND Film “Trapped in Hitler’s Hell,” argues occultism is being normalized in an increasingly degenerate nation.
“The Bible says that in the last days evil will wax worse and worse,” she said. “A part of that is that the paranormal is being normalized.
“I have done two-dozen radio programs on this topic as it is so alarming. Children as young as 4 and 5 are being desensitized to the occult. After-school ‘Satan clubs’ have been launched in public schools to offset the good that the ‘Good News Clubs’ have been doing for decades. If parents don’t wake up and rise up, we are going to have a society steeped in occult practices in a few years, much worse than the situation is today.”
Pastor Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries, author of “God’s Day Timer,” cited Deuteronomy 18:10-12 to argue those who use occult practices are an “abomination” in God’s sight, according to the Scriptures. He agreed with Markell that such practices are becoming increasingly common.
“We are living at the time of the coming of the Messiah,” he warned. “The world will be getting worse until Messiah’s return. We are to always pray for those who are our leaders. Not only should Christians pray, but they should get actively involved.”
“America’s born again believers should cover President Trump in prayer,” Gallups said. “It’s obvious that the demonic realm is stirred by his presence. It’s also obvious that the antichrist agenda of the globalist community is going berserk over a Trump presidency. These are simply signs to those of us who know God’s word that President Trump is being used by the Lord in these prophetic times. Pray for him. Pray for our nation. And, then, get on with the work of the Kingdom.”
Gallups recalled he was once the target of spiritual warfare by a group of supposed witches. And he argued faith in Jesus Christ is an effective counter to any form of spiritual attack.
“I have been a senior pastor of a church in one location for 30 years,” he said. “Very early on in my ministry there, I too became the directed target of witchcraft through an organized witch coven. We even had a couple from the coven who were sent/paid to disrupt one of our worship services. All kinds of promises of ‘evil’ were made that would befall me. I gave no credence to it whatsoever. They went to jail, and I went on with my life and my work for the Kingdom of Jesus Christ, simply claiming the promise of God’s protection along the way.
“Twenty-five years later I am still at that church, the church is powerful in the Lord and reaching the world for Jesus, and the Lord continues to bless my life and ministry beyond anything I ever imagined,” he said.
“I am certain that the demonic activities against me and my ministry have never let up; it’s just that I purposely pay them no mind. My trust is in Jesus; I have no fear of magic ‘spells’ and the silly incantations of Christ deniers who are burning candles and looking for signs in a deck of cards.”
Karl Payne, the former chaplain of the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks and an expert in exorcism who penned “Spiritual Warfare” as a guide for Christians dealing with unseen forces, denounced those behind the spiritual attack on Trump as “so ideologically driven, they do not see straight.”
But he also warned occult forces are being increasingly normalized in popular culture through an anti-Christian media.
“It is not possible to watch major television stations, cable stations or movies without being inundated with shows and movies on the paranormal,” he said. “To think that the constant exposure to these types of shows will not have an impact on those watching them is as naïve as it is to believe people can watch and play hours of video games glorifying murder and mayhem and it not make an indelible impact on their minds.
“Those denying this are typically those with private agendas hoping to see occultism normalized, and those who profit financially from it with no care or concern for the destructive collateral damage incurred as a result.”
Payne said that “too many Christians and churches are more concerned about making friends and straddling an ever eroding moral, ethical and cultural divide in hopes of appearing politically correct rather than being biblically correct.”
He urged Christians to pray for President Trump, but he also said Christians are commanded to pray for everyone in authority over them, even those who are hostile to the Christian faith.
“Christians should not ‘begin’ praying for President Trump; they should already have been praying for him and his administration, just like they should have been doing for Presidents Bush, Clinton and Obama when they were president, whether they were one’s first choice, second choice or no choice,” he said.
However, Payne also said this is a critical time of choosing for American Christians, too many of whom, he claimed, are not standing up for their faith.
“It is time for Christians to view themselves as victors in Christ because of His selfless sacrifice on the cross, rather than apologize for their faith, hiding in fear and volunteering to ride in the back of the bus in hopes of not offending someone or being dragged into the scrum,” he said.
“I personally prefer truth to pretense and posturing, and I refuse to apologize for the One who loved me enough to die for me. Occultists, witches and political hacks should remember the One who lives in Christians is greater than the ones who oppose Christians, natural or supernatural.
“Maybe it is time for Christians to be motivated by courage and faith rather than compromise and fear,” he continued. “Maybe it is time for Christians to step out of the closet too; seems everyone else already has. Christians in this country supposedly represent a 50 million strong voting bloc. Maybe it is time they began to think like a guard dog rather than a posturing, prancing poodle. Jesus did not hide, the apostles did not hide, the early church did not hide, so why should we hide?
“Maybe Christians should view blending into culture rather than shining through it as the compromise that it really represents rather than an art form to be perfected. Jesus was perfect, and the Romans and Jewish leadership still teamed up to crucify Him. Why should we think that if we make friends with everyone, and try not to offend anyone, we will be treated any better than Jesus in this country or around the world?”
As spiritual warfare moves into the headlines, Markell argues it is time for believers to wake up to what is truly at stake.
“Christians need to get educated about the paranormal and just what the agenda is,” she told WND. “It is all evil. The topic may be dark and unpleasant, but learning that loved ones have been snared by the occult is worse. The occult is bold today and growing bolder each day.”
However, Markell also said Christians should remember victory in spiritual warfare is assured if they take up the battle.
“Christians can also unite in individual or corporate prayer on behalf of President Trump, Vice President Pence and all in this new administration,” she said. “We need to push back against the darkness that has consumed Washington, D.C., in recent years.
“The secular world knows nothing of spiritual warfare. This should get Christians galvanized to restore decency and righteousness in America’s highest leaders.”
A man suspected of mailing ricin to President Donald Trump and Defense Secretary James Mattis was taken into police custody in Logan, Utah, according to authorities.
Captain Tyson Budge of the Logan Utah Police Department announced the arrest to news outlets Wednesday afternoon.
“No wider threat to the public safety exists at this time,” said FBI Salt Lake City field office spokesman Doug Davis. “As it is a pending matter, that’s all we can say at this time.”
A spokesperson for the U.S. attorney for Utah identified the suspect as William Clyde Allen III.
Authorities were investigating two envelopes suspected of containing a suspected poison addressed to top military chiefs and a third with unknown contents sent to President Donald Trump.
In a statement Tuesday evening, the Secret Service confirmed that a suspicious envelope had been sent to the president on Monday but was not received at the White House, nor did it ever enter the building. The agency did not disclose any details about what was in the envelope or where it was received. The White House had no comment.
Authorities at a Pentagon mail screening facility were investigating two envelopes suspected of containing ricin, a poison made from castor beans. Those letters were addressed to Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, who is traveling in Europe this week, and the Navy’s top officer, Adm. John Richardson, a defense official said.
They were turned over to the FBI for further analysis. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to speak publicly ahead of the FBI’s release of its findings.
Neither envelope entered the Pentagon. The mail screening facility is on the Pentagon grounds but separate from the main building.
Pentagon spokesman Chris Sherwood said the envelopes had been found on Monday.
Another Pentagon spokesman, Col. Rob Manning, said all U.S. Postal Service mail received at the screening facility on Monday was under quarantine and “poses no threat to Pentagon personnel.”
Ricin is part of the waste “mash” produced when castor oil is made. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, if it is made into a partially purified material or refined, ricin can be used as a weapon capable of causing death under certain circumstances.
Dana W. White, the chief Pentagon spokeswoman, told reporters traveling with Defense Secretary Jim Mattis in Brussels that the substance was castor seeds.
Less than an hour after CNN reported that two envelopes tainted with the deadly poison ricin had been intercepted at a Pentagon Mail Facility (the pieces of mail were addressed to Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Navy Admiral John Richardson), the Weekly Standard reported that an envelope containing a “white powdery substance” was received by Ted Cruz’s Houston campaign headquarters.
Multiple fire trucks and at least one hazmat truck responded to the scene after the letter was opened by campaign staff, who promptly reported it to authorities.
According to WS, two people were hospitalized following exposure to the powder, though the Houston Fire Department later confirmed that the substance didn’t test positive for anything harmful.
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich told Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly last night that the establishment is scared of Donald Trump because he “didn’t belong to a secret society” and wasn’t involved in any of the rituals associated with such groups.
Discussing Mitt Romney’s anti-Trump speech yesterday, Gingrich said it represented “the panic of the establishment wing of the (Republican) Party,” and that the prospect of Trump becoming the nominee “absolutely drives them crazy”.
When asked why, Gingrich responded, “Well because he’s an outsider, he’s not them, he’s not part of the club, he’s uncontrollable, he hasn’t been through the initiation rites, he didn’t belong to the secret society.”
Gingrich is in a perfect position to know about “secret societies” given his affiliation with Bohemian Grove, an annual encampment that takes place every year in Monte Rio, California and is attended by some of the most powerful people in the world.
Gingrich’s photograph is featured in the Annals of the Bohemian Club, Volume 7, 1987-1996 alongside George W. Bush and his father.
The former Speaker of the House could also be referring to Skull and Bones, a secret society at Yale which counts amongst its members both George W. and John Kerry, who ran against each other in the 2004 presidential election.
Skull and Bones is notorious for its initiation rituals, which according to some include masturbating in a coffin. In 2001,journalist Ron Rosenbaumbecame the first outsider to witness some of the rituals. Video footage of the ceremony shows ‘Bonesmen’ screaming while they kiss a skull and perform a mock murder.
