A few weeks back, K. Edward Copeland, a pastor and member of The Gospel Coalition (TGC), an ostensibly Christian organization that “exists to equip the next generation of believers, pastors and church leaders to shape life and ministry around the gospel,” published a horrendous hit piece framing Kyle Rittenhouse as a “mass shooter” no different than Dylann Storm Roof. Copeland flat-out misconstrued the facts by claiming that Rittenhouse was an aggressor rather than a victim, and also conveniently failed to point out that one of the attackers whom Rittenhouse shot to death was a child rapist who molested at least five young boys between the ages of 9 and 11.
Copeland, who pastors New Zion Baptist Church in Rockford, Ill., is a regular contributor to TGC, which we noted was originally founded by fellow pastor and New York Times contributor Tim Keller of Redeemer Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Manhattan. And the article in question, which is chock-full of lies and misrepresentations, is still published at TGC’s website without retraction or correction, despite its fake news elements having been brought to the world’s attention by numerous independent media outlets over the past month.
At no point in his article did Copeland even bother to suggest that Rittenhouse may have acted in self-defense to protect both himself and others from harm by the Black Lives Matter (BLM) mob that swarmed Kenosha that day. Copeland also failed to scope out the truth about those whom Rittenhouse shot, referring to them simply as “people,” and casting him as some kind of racist acting from a privileged position of white supremacy simply due to his fair skin tone.
Besides the defamatory nature of Copeland’s words, this so-called man of the cloth completely misconstrued the events that occurred that fateful day, which only fueled the fires of anger and rage that have already resulted in numerous American cities being burned to the ground by violent domestic terrorists. What is worse, Copeland inadvertently heaped scorn upon the lives of the five young boys who were raped by Joseph Rosenbaum, one of the men Rittenhouse shot to death that Copeland erroneously cast as a “victim” in the melee.
Will The Gospel Coalition rebuke Copeland and denounce pedophilia, or be seen as a supporter of lies and perversion?
It did not take this writer long to pull up Rosenbaum’s extensive rap sheet, which reveals him as a sex offender of the worst kind. It also took mere seconds to uncover video evidence showing that Rosenbaum lobbed a Molotov cocktail at Rittenhouse right before Rittenhouse, a trained sharp-shooter, responded by doing what needed to be done – as any good patriot and defender of justice would do.
Also worth noting is the fact that the other two “victims” who were shot by Rittenhouse, Anthony Huber and Gaige Grosskreutz, likewise had extensive criminal records. These were malignant agitators, in other words, not innocent bystanders like Copeland deceptively framed them as in his attempt to condemn Rittenhouse for “t[aking] lives in front of physical and digital witnesses.”
While we cannot know Copeland’s true motivations in lying about the Rittenhouse encounter, we can at least say with certainty that he is not telling the truth. And since Copeland’s article is still published by TGC, this alleged Christian organization is complicit in supporting this slanderous religious leader and his egregiously false message, which distorts the facts while pulling God into the equation as someone who “d[oes] not color-code human dignity and worth.”
The fact of the matter is that Rittenhouse successfully removed three dangerous men from America’s streets, two of them permanently, after being provoked by them. And at least one of these dangerous men was quite literally a demon in human flesh who stole the dignity and innocence of at least five little boys who were made in God’s image, and who did not deserve to be sexually molested by a pedophile.
With that said, we are calling on TGC to either rebuke this Copeland character publicly and remove his article, as well as issue an apology, or else be exposed as just another faux religious organization aiding and abetting criminals and pedophiles who rape little boys to push a political agenda. What is it going to be, TGC?

Attorneys for a Montana real estate agent are eyeing the assets of a neo-Nazi website operator to collect a $14 million court judgment against the man for an anti-Semitic online “troll storm” that he orchestrated against the Jewish woman and her family, court filings show.
More than a year has passed since a federal judge in Montana entered a default judgment against Andrew Anglin, the Daily Stormer’s founder and publisher. Plaintiffs’ lawyers say the Ohio native has failed to pay any of the monetary award to Tanya Gersh.
Gersh’s attorneys from the Southern Poverty Law Center say they intend to identify any of Anglin’s assets that could be used to satisfy the judgment. Trying to seize Anglin’s assets will be “time-consuming and extremely complex” given his lack of cooperation and history of holding assets in cryptocurrency rather than more traditional forms, law center lawyers wrote in a filing last month.
In August 2019, U.S. District Judge Dana Christensen ordered Anglin to pay $4 million in compensatory damages and $10 million in punitive damages to Gersh. The judge also ordered Anglin to permanently remove from his website the posts in which he encouraged readers to contact Gersh and her family. Anglin eventually complied with that part of the judge’s order, according to Gersh’s lawyers.
Other targets of Anglin’s online harassment campaigns also secured default judgments against him after he failed to respond to their respective lawsuits.
In June 2019, a federal judge in Ohio awarded $4.1 million in damages to Muslim-American radio host Dean Obeidallah, who filed a libel lawsuit against Anglin for falsely accusing him of terrorism. Obeidallah said he received death threats after Anglin published an article that tricked readers into believing he took responsibility for the May 2017 terrorist attack at an Ariana Grande concert
Muslim Advocates staff attorney Matt Callahan said the group, which represents Obeidallah, remains dedicated to collecting the judgment and holding Anglin accountable.
“Mr. Anglin cannot hide forever from the consequences of his false and hateful statements,” Callahan said in a statement.
In August 2019, a federal judge in Washington entered another default judgment against Anglin and awarded just over $600,000 in compensatory and punitive damages to the first Black woman to serve as American University’s student government president.
Taylor Dumpson’s lawsuit said Anglin directed his readers to “troll storm” her after someone hung bananas with hateful messages from nooses on the university’s campus a day after her May 2017 inauguration as student government president.
Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law executive director Kristen Clarke, whose organization represents Dumpson, said they are working closely with the Alabama-based SPLC and others to collect on the judgments.
“Collection of these judgments is a critical part of our ongoing work to confront and diminish the footprint of white supremacy in our country,” Clarke said in a statement.
Anglin and some other defendants also face a possible default judgment in a federal lawsuit filed in Virginia by victims of violence that erupted at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August 2017. The judge presiding over the case, which is set for trial next year against several other far-right extremist groups and rally organizers, hasn’t settled on an amount of money for Anglin or the others to pay.
“We are prepared to follow these defendants around for the rest of their lives to collect on these judgments. That includes seizing any assets, putting liens on their homes, garnishing wages,” said Integrity First for America executive director Amy Spitalnick, whose civil rights group is backing the Charlottesville lawsuit.
Anglin’s whereabouts have been a mystery, although he has claimed to be living outside the U.S. The federal court in Montana entered a default order against Anglin after he failed to appear for his scheduled deposition by Gersh’s attorneys. At the time, Anglin claimed it was too dangerous for him to travel to the U.S.
Anglin’s site takes its name from Der Sturmer, a newspaper that published Nazi propaganda. The site includes sections called “Jewish Problem” and “Race War.” For months, the site struggled to stay online after Anglin published a post mocking the woman who was killed when a man plowed his car into a crowd of counterprotesters at the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville three years ago.
In the lawsuit she filed in Montana against Anglin in April 2017, Gersh says anonymous internet trolls bombarded her family with hateful and threatening messages after Anglin published their personal information, including a photo of her young son. In a string of posts, Anglin accused Gersh and other Jewish residents of Whitefish, Montana, of engaging in an “extortion racket” against the mother of white nationalist Richard Spencer.
Gersh says she had agreed to help Spencer’s mother sell commercial property she owns in Whitefish amid talk of a protest outside the building. Sherry Spencer, however, later accused Gersh of threatening and harassing her into agreeing to sell the property
PART ONE: THE FAILURE
Peter Doshi, associate editor of the medical journal BMJ, and Eric Topol, Scripps Research professor of molecular medicine, have written a devastating NY Times opinion piece about the ongoing COVID vaccine clinical trials.
They expose the fatal flaw in the large Pfizer, AstraZeneca, and Moderna trials.
September 22, the Times: “These Coronavirus Trials Don’t Answer the One Question We Need to Know”:
“If you were to approve a coronavirus vaccine, would you approve one that you only knew protected people only from the most mild form of Covid-19, or one that would prevent its serious complications?”
“The answer is obvious. You would want to protect against the worst cases.”
“But that’s not how the companies testing three of the leading coronavirus vaccine candidates, Moderna, Pfizer and AstraZeneca, whose U.S. trial is on hold, are approaching the problem.”
“According to the protocols for their studies, which they released late last week, a vaccine could meet the companies’ benchmark for success if it lowered the risk of mild Covid-19, but was never shown to reduce moderate or severe forms of the disease, or the risk of hospitalization, admissions to the intensive care unit or death.”
“To say a vaccine works should mean that most people no longer run the risk of getting seriously sick. That’s not what these trials will determine.”
This means these clinical trials are dead in the water.
The trials are designed to show effectiveness in preventing mild cases of COVID, which nobody should care about, because mild cases naturally run their course and cause no harm. THERE IS NO NEED FOR A VACCINE THAT PREVENTS MILD CASES.
Now let’s go deeper. Read the next section from the Times piece, and then I’ll make comments.
“The Moderna and AstraZeneca studies will involve about 30,000 participants each; Pfizer’s will have 44,000. Half the participants will receive two doses of vaccines separated by three or four weeks, and the other half will receive saltwater placebo shots. The final determination of efficacy will occur after 150 to 160 participants develop Covid-19…”
Here’s how it works. The vaccine companies are looking for a total of 150 (mild) COVID cases to occur, combined, in the two groups; those receiving the placebo and those receiving the vaccine. How would that happen? The researchers believe ‘the coronavirus is spreading everywhere and it will pounce on some of the volunteers in the clinical trial.’
Let’s say that, during the trial, 100 people receiving the placebo develop mild COVID-19, and only 50 people receiving the vaccine develop mild COVID.
The vaccine companies would say, ‘We just proved the vaccine is 50% effective in preventing COVID, and that’s all we need to do, in order to win authorization from the FDA. Release the vaccine. Inject the world.’
The irrelevant outcomes for 150 people equal ‘let’s shoot up seven billion people.’ That’s staggering.
But it gets even worse. The magic number of 150 COVID cases? How is a COVID case defined? The authors of the Times piece have the answer:
“In the Moderna and Pfizer trials, even a mild case of Covid-19 — for instance, a cough plus a positive lab test — would qualify and muddy the results. AstraZeneca is slightly more stringent but would still count mild symptoms like a cough plus fever as a case.”
But wait. The NY Times itself recently published an article stating that up to 90% of US COVID cases could very well be false positives—in other words, not cases at all. Why? Because the diagnostic PCR test, as it is performed by many labs, is too sensitive. It registers ‘positive for COVID’ when it shouldn’t.
So, in these vaccine clinical trials, the whole process of determining that ‘150 people developed COVID-19’ is completely unreliable, useless, absurd, and nonsensical.
Other than that, the clinical trials are perfect. Yes, perfectly ridiculous.
There is much more in the Times opinion piece, but I’ll leave it there.
“So the magic number is 150? That’s the number that will decide the immediate fate of the planet?”
“And these 150 people, who you say develop COVID-19…you really can’t confirm that because the definition of a COVID case is so vague and the PCR test is so unreliable.”
“And come to think of it, the people receiving the vaccine in the clinical trials could develop symptoms indistinguishable from COVID-19, as a result of the effects of the vaccine.”
“Yes, that’s right.”
“But you’re very confident in the success of the vaccine.”
“I have to be confident. If we’re exposed as incompetent frauds, our bottom line will take a huge hit.”
“Thank you, sir. And that’s tonight’s news. Make sure you take the vaccine, everyone. It’s vital.

A group is suing Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum and Tulsa Health Department Executive Director Bruce Dart, saying the city’s mask mandate is harmful to healthy people.
Optometrist Robert Zoellner, Clay Clark, Dr. James Meehan, MD, and other Tulsa-based business owners are asking the city to immediately repeal the mask mandate which was passed by city council last month.
The group alleges wearing masks is causing healthy people to become sick while trying to prevent the spread of a disease that is not a deadly threat to children and much of the public.
“On the OSHA website it states that employers shouldn’t make employees work in an environment where they have less than a 19.5 percent oxygen level,” said Clayton Clark, one of the plaintiffs. “And the mandated masks cause employees to dip below a 19.5 percent oxygen level within 10 seconds of wearing a mask, so I don’t want to make my healthy employees sick.”
The American Medical Association (JAMA) and CDC both agree that cloth face coverings can help fight against COVID-19 that could reduce the spread of the disease, particularly when used universally within communities.
“We are not defenseless against COVID-19,” said CDC Director Dr. Robert R. Redfield. “Cloth face coverings are one of the most powerful weapons we have to slow and stop the spread of the virus – particularly when used universally within a community setting. All Americans have a responsibility to protect themselves, their families, and their communities.”
As of Monday, the Oklahoma State Department of Health has reported 48,711 cases and 665 deaths since March.
The group against masks held a news conference Tuesday in Jenks about their case:
