Reports LGBTQ protesters incited ‘violence and fear’ at Christian gathering

Christian Lives Matter founder Charlie Bakhos has condemned the violence that broke out when LGBTQ protestors tried to block a church in Sydney’s South West on Tuesday night.

Bakhos said he had no idea that more than 600 people would arrive at St Michael’s Church in Belfield when he advertised a prayer meeting there in response to LGBTQ protestors.

Reports from those on the ground claim protesters attending the event from outside suburbs attempted to vandalise Church property and destroy a Crucifix, which incited Christians at the event.

Western Sydney communities are increasingly frustrated their concerns about religious freedoms are failing to be heard as progressive activist groups continue to push a social agenda at odds with their faith and politicians refuse to act.

Some locals say they are ‘fed up’ with mainstream media reports which continue to fuel the cultural divide with one-sided coverage of the issue. 

The Community Action for Rainbow Rights (CARR) group had threatened to block access to the church where NSW One Nation leader Mark Latham was giving a talk on religious freedom and parental rights.

They accused Latham of being a transphobe.

Bakhos organised a prayer vigil outside the church but said he was shocked when hundreds of people arrived, many of whom were not Christians but who wanted to defend the church from swarm of LGBTQ protestors.

“We don’t condone violence and that’s not what we organised,” Mr Bakhos told the Daily Telegraph.

“A big group of us did pray, but at the end of the day you can’t control everyone else’s reactions,” he said.

“Last night showed that this is much bigger than Christian Lives Matter. More than 80 per cent of people I’ve never seen in and some people came to pray and others came to protect the church.

“There were Muslims, nonbelievers and Christians who came together.”

Bakhos said tensions were still high after queer comedian Reuben Kaye made an x-rated joke about Jesus on Channel 10 program The Project and so while he did not condone violence he was unsurprised when some people attacked CAAR protestors.

Joseph Charbel, who attended Tuesday night’s protest, said he doubted the LGBTQ protestors would have tried to a Mosque.

“These activists wouldn’t dare go to a Mosque and Synagogue, yet they expected us to sit there and let them come into our own backyard and not do anything,” he said.

“When word got around on social media about the unauthorised protest by CARR everyone got together to defend the church.

“You can’t incite fear and threats towards us and expect people not to defend, especially when we didn’t know how many would be coming from their side.”

Ex-Soldier Kills 3 Kids In Their Sleep, Fellow Soldier In SC Murder-Suicide, Cops Say

Ex-Soldier Kills 3 Kids In Their Sleep, Fellow Soldier In SC Murder-Suicide, Cops Say

On Tuesday night, a former soldier entered his ex-wife’s home in Sumter, South Carolina, where he shot and killed her three children in their beds before killing himself.

The mother, who was trying to stop him, witnessed the shooting of her co-worker in the backyard, the AP reported.

The soldier had no personal relationship with the mother outside of work.

It is unclear why the ex-soldier had a key to the home after being divorced.

The victims were identified as the ex-soldier’s two young children and his former stepdaughter, ages 5, 6, 11.

The ex-soldier was a civilian assigned to U.S. Army Central at Shaw Air Force Base.

BREAKING: Pastor Derek Reimer released on bail after being arrested for protesting all ages drag queen story hour

Remove Ads

Street pastor Derek Reimer was released on early Wednesday evening, after a successfull bail hearing this morning.

Rebel Reporter, Angelica Toy captured the moment where the pastor was dropped off at a local train station, where he was driven too, instead of the jail he was originally in.

“Happy to be out. Then about a week or so, bail hearing. Well, this big shout out to my lawyer (Ben Allison). So to all the supporters that came. Thank you, guys. Thanks for everybody. Just watching, supporting and donating.”

Angelica continues to speak with Derek for his thoughts on being released, with new bail conditions.

“I don’t like any of the bail conditions to be honest.”

Rebel’s Chief Reporter, Sheila Gunn Reid reported earlier from inside Calgary’s court that Pastor Reimer’s conditions were as follows:

  • $5000 no cash bail
  • No contact or public statements with certain named people from Seton Library event
  • No contact with participants or performers at Drag Queen Story Hour events
  • Staying away atleast 300 meters from Drag Queen Story Hours and LGBTQ events
  • No weapons or guns

Reimer expressed his dissatisfaction with his bail conditions, though he was happy that his lawyer, Ben, was able to loosen some conditions. Reimer stated that he would continue to fight against children’s involvement with drag shows despite the arrest.

“To paint me with a certain brush, they bring up my my whole past my whole criminal record of like 12 years ago and just trying to have me look like a certain guy. But we’re just thankful, you know, and praise God again for Ben’s performance and for the judge as she was fair and I thought did a good job there as well.”

When asked if if he’ll continue his advocacy to end children’s involvement with drag shows, he says yes.

“Yes, absolutely. You know, this is a conviction. It’s a calling from the Lord. And I’m looking forward to talking with the team and discussing what we’re going to do moving forward. But again, that that compulsion and that conviction and that calling, that’s all there and burning within me. And I’m just happy to be out and just kind of take this one step at a time.”

Rebel News will publish Angelica’s full interview tomorrow morning.

You can help support Pastor Derek Reimer’s legal fund to fight back by heading to, there you can make a tax deductible donation through the registered charity, The Democracy Fund, who has hired a lawyer on his behalf.

Feds Arrest 22-Year-Old Woman For Fire At Planned Abortion Clinic In Wyoming

Cheyenne, WY (DOJ) – Lorna Roxanne Green, 22, of Casper, Wyoming, has been arrested and charged by complaint with arson of a facility engaged in interstate commerce.

The affected facility is Wellspring Health Access Clinic, which was scheduled to open June 14, 2022. The clinic intended to offer services of OB/GYN care, gender-affirming care, and abortion procedures.

The arrest took place on March 21, 2023, in Casper, Wyoming by the Casper Police Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).

On May 25, 2022, at about 3:49 a.m., Casper Police Department officers responded to the Wellspring Health Access Clinic in Casper, Wyoming. Officers observed smoke coming from the east side of the building and dispatched the Casper Fire Department who responded and extinguished the fire. Through witness accounts and video surveillance, investigators identified a suspect who had gained entry by breaking a window, pouring gas in the facility, then leaving just prior to the reporting party calling in suspicious activity.

On March 3, 2023, the Casper Police Department, with the assistance of an anonymous donor, issued a press release soliciting the public for leads in the case, with an additional $10,000 reward. Shortly after that, several tipsters identified a potential suspect, which led to the filing of charges after additional investigation.

“This case demonstrates how valuable tips are from the community,” said United States Attorney Nicholas Vassallo. “Every tip received was shared with and evaluated by cooperating law enforcement partners from the Casper Police Department, FBI, and ATF. Several tips from the public and the hard work of the investigators were instrumental in identifying and arresting Lorna Green.”

“The progress we’ve made in this complicated investigation is a perfect example of the strong working relationships we have with our Federal Law Enforcement partners,” said Chief of Police Keith McPheeters. “The FBI and the ATF provided significant resources and expertise to the Casper Police Department, working hand-in-hand with our detectives and officers throughout this lengthy investigation. Importantly, our community members also assisted in bringing this investigation to this stage. We would like to thank and recognize the dedicated investigators and citizens who contributed to the investigation of this dangerous arson incident.”

“ATF Certified Fire Investigators provided expert investigative and logistical support to the Casper Police Department where they worked together in determining the origin and cause of this arson, said Acting ATF Special Agent in Charge Kirk Howard. “While established local and federal partnerships contributed greatly, we are especially grateful to the Casper community for their pivotal engagement.”

“The FBI is grateful for the relationships it maintains with local, state, federal and tribal partners,” said Denver FBI Special Agent in Charge Mark Michalek. “It cannot be stressed enough that these kinds of partnerships are integral to keeping our communities safe. We are appreciative of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, the Casper Police Department, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Wyoming for their collaborative work in this case.”

If convicted, Green faces a minimum of five years and up to 20 years’ imprisonment, up to a $250,000 fine, three years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment.

LAS VEGAS – On Wednesday morning, a Southwest Airlines pilot suffered an apparent medical emergency on a flight from Las Vegas to Columbus, Ohio, the airline said.

After the pilot became incapacitated, another pilot from a different airline who happened to be on board provided assistance with radio communication while the remaining Southwest pilot took control of the aircraft.

The flight flew over Utah north of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument before eventually returning to the Las Vegas gate nearly two hours after takeoff.

“Southwest Flight 6013 from Las Vegas to Columbus, Ohio returned to LAS after departure on Wednesday when one of our Pilots needed medical attention,” Southwest said in a statement. “The flight landed safely, and an alternate Flight Crew is operating the flight to CMH. We commend the Crew for their professionalism and appreciate our Customers’ patience and understanding regarding the situation.”

It was unclear what caused the pilot to collapse mid-flight.

Warning! Silicon Valley Bank Collapse – A Prelude of Much Worse to Come? Derivatives: “Financial Weapons of Mass Destruction”.

“Every cause has its effect; every effect has its cause; everything happens according to law; chance is but a name for law not recognized; there are many planes of causation, but nothing escapes the law.” —Kybalion

It is no coincidence that within 48 hours, two California commercial banks failed. The not much talked-about Silvergate Capital, a central lender to the crypto industry, declared on March 8, 2023, it would wind down its operations. On March 10, the Silicon Valley Bank (SVB), primary lender for tech-startups, collapsed.

SVB was immediately taken over by federal regulators. It is the largest bank failure since the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers in 2008. Relatively unknown outside of the Silicon Valley, SVB was the 16th largest US commercial bank with US$ 209 billion in assets at the end of 2022.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) has assured SVB insured depositors that they will have access to their full funds within the FDIC-fixed limits of US$ 250,000 per depositor.

However, the FDIC total fund covers only about 2% of the $9.6 trillion in US-insured deposits.

What happens when other banks collapse at the same time and uninformed depositors believe their deposits up to US$ 250,000 are safe? But then find out that they are not?

The failure of the SVB is the result of several converging factors. As former Deputy Treasury Secretary, Paul Craig Roberts says, one of the key reasons is the 1999 Clinton-regime repealing the Glass-Steagall Act, i.e. a large degree of banking deregulation, and because the Dodd-Frank Act (2010) allows failing banks to seize the deposits of depositors in order to have a bail-in instead of a bail-out. The legislation, especially the latter, causes depositors to withdraw their deposits on any sign of bank trouble. It is called a run on the bank.

Another reason for SVB troubles is the Fed’s rapid and substantial interest rates hikes – the largest and in the shortest period in the last at least 30 years – which also reduced the value of the SVB’s bond portfolio. Banks and businesses have difficulties to adjust to the size and pace of interest rate increases. See this.

The same may apply to other banks which are not sufficiently diversified and securely funded. Wait and see.

As if programmed and looking like a domino effect, on Sunday March 12, Signature Bank folded too. SB is a New York-based commercial bank with a big real estate lending business, as well as sizable cryptocurrency deposits. SB had a total asset base of $110.4 billion and deposits of $88.6 billion as of December 31, 2022.

It closed its doors abruptly after regulators said that keeping the bank open could threaten the stability of the entire financial system.

Are we talking about a lingering and potentially rapidly expanding domino effect?

Nothing happens by coincidence. All is connected with everything. We have to learn overriding the mainstream media narrative that points always to singular events to confuse and brainwash. When we learn connecting the dots between occurrences and events, we will realize that everything is connected with everything. See also Michel Chossudovsky’s “Ninety-nine Interrelated Concepts”.

Switching the Narrative

So far, hardly anybody has made the link of these banking failures – and potentially more to come – to the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) prophesized Great Reset.

A WEF insider has been caught boasting that the Silicon Valley Bank crash was an orchestrated plot that went to plan perfectly – and the crash will have a domino effect on the banking industry, leading to a global financial meltdown.

To what extent such a scenario will play out remains to be seen.

For more on the subject of “collapse and control”, see this, watch in particular the 11:11 min. video (below), inserted in this newspunch clip. It also features the General Manager of the Bank for International Settlement (BIS), Augustin Carsten, who already in 2020 was talking about the need for Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) for total control of who spends money for what and especially for control of cross-border transactions. He deliberately avoids mentioning “personal control”.

In a juxtaposition, the video also shows a clip of Tucker Carlson’s Fox News interview with South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem (Rep), where she explains why she vetoes CBDC and that she is joined by at least another 20 US States, so far. She confirms what many economists have been saying since the concept of CBDCs is being pushed around the western hemisphere in the last ten years.

CBDCs would be an absolute control mechanism of every citizen on the planet. Nobody wants to be controlled, and – à la Great Reset, own nothing and be happy. People like their autonomy. See this for full interview (4 min) (video is below).

The massive planned banking collapse – already announced as a doomsday scenario in the aftermath of the 2008 / 2010 banking crisis and on several subsequent occasions — may already have begun. “They”, the “doomsday-people” who also command the WEF, are running ahead of schedule, execution of Agenda 2030, because people are gradually but increasingly waking up to the WEF-planned world disaster.

Of course, the WEF with its more than willing founder (1971) and CEO, Klaus Schwab, coming from a solid Nazi background and from a family deeply embedded into the Third Reich, is more than willingly complying.

Today the WEF is backed by Big-Finance looming in the shadows, BlackRock being WEF’s major financier. The likes of BlackRock, Vanguard and StateStreet, plus a series of smaller banks, Citi, Chase, Morgan, Bank of America – and further down the ladder, Deutsche Bank and Credit Suisse – all of them are controlling an estimated US$ 25 to US$ 30 trillion of assets around the globe.

In addition, they are all deeply “over-engaged” in the Derivatives Market. While nobody knows exactly what the total of this Casino Money amounts to, estimates range from US$ 500 trillion to over a quadrillion dollar. Compare this with the world’s projected GDP of US$ 112.6 trillion (2023 estimate).

According to the Economic Times, a derivative is a contract between two parties (mostly banks and other financial institutions) which derives its value / price from an underlying asset. The most common types of derivatives are futures, options, forwards and swaps. In other words, they may include short-term speculations, helped by AI, for example on exchange rate fluctuations, often in fractions of a second.

Derivatives are not real money, but under certain circumstances, they are allowed to be part of a bank’s asset base, thereby risking blowing the total volume of assets out of proportion.

Derivatives are the loose card in a house of cards. You pull it, and the house collapses. You pull a card in two or three houses and the domino effect may wipe out the entire city of cards – the entire banking system may go down the drain. Since derivatives are interconnected worldwide, the entire international banking cartel may suffer.

If one or two heavily derivative-exposed banks claim their derivative holdings from their partner bank or banks, it becomes a “derivative-run” on the banks, and the system may collapse – possibly on a worldwide basis, or at least in the western dollar-based banking system.

Derivative speculations should long be either forbidden or at least regulated. They are not, thanks to massive lobbying of Big Finance. And thanks to almost total banking deregulation by the Clinton Administration in 1999, i.e. the repeal of the Glass Stegall Act, the abolition of the separation between investment and commercial banking, as well as basically limitless lending, without mandatary asset-liability ratios. This facilitates risk and laissez faire banking.

In times of fast and substantial interest rate hikes as we experienced over the last 12 months, over-exposed banks run higher risks of failure.

Back to derivatives – which are key in the looming banking crisis. Warren Buffet calls derivatives “Financial Weapons of Mass Destruction”. He is right.

Let’s look at the derivative exposure of big banking, also called “systemically important financial institutions” (SIFI). In a better-known term, they are called Too Big To Fail Banks, and used to be eligible for government “bail-outs” with taxpayer’s money.
In an elaborate paper by Ellen Brown, Chair of Public Banking, she describes the conundrum of derivatives. As of the third quarter of 2022, a total of 1,211 insured U.S. national and state commercial banks and savings associations held derivatives, but 88.6% of these were concentrated in only four large banks: J.P. Morgan Chase ($54.3 trillion), Goldman Sachs ($51 trillion), Citibank ($46 trillion), Bank of America ($21.6 trillion), followed by Wells Fargo ($12.2 trillion). Unlike in 2008-09, when the big derivative concerns were mortgage-backed securities and credit default swaps, today the largest and riskiest category is interest rate products.

SIFIs, as defined by the Dodd-Frank Act, ratified in July 2010, is requiring insolvent SIFIs to “bail-in” the money of their creditors to recapitalize themselves. This banking law is seriously flawed because it incites depositors to run-on-their-bank to withdraw their money as soon as there are rumors of a bank’s instability. As we know, such consumer panics may bring down a bank and possibly the banking system, or parts of it, through a domino effect.

According to Ellen, “Technically, the cutoff for SIFIs is US$ 250 billion in assets. However, the reason they are called systemically important is not their asset size but the fact that their failure could bring down the whole financial system.”

“That designation comes chiefly from their exposure to derivatives, the global casino is so highly interconnected that it is a “house of cards.” Pull out one card and the whole house collapses. SVB held US$ 27.7 billion in derivatives, no small sum, but it is only .05% of the $55,387 billion ($55.387 trillion) held by JPMorgan, the largest US derivatives bank.”

For Ellen’s comprehensive article The Looming Quadrillion Dollar Derivatives Tsunami, see this.

The build-up of an up to a quadrillion dollar or more of a derivative casino does not happen overnight. And it does not happen haphazardly either. Could it possibly have been planned by a long hand – and prepared to fit the WEF’s Great Reset and Agenda 2030?

Massive growth of the derivative market started with the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act (banking deregulation) in 1999. At the end of 1999, total outstanding derivatives stood at US$ 88.2 trillion dollars. Today, 23 years later, it is estimated at perhaps one quadrillion US-dollars or more. Was this explosive and exponential growth planned?

Was the Clinton Administration 1999 banking deregulation / repeal of Glass-Steagall a deliberate precursor for what was planned to be part of the WEF’s Great Reseat which intends to reset, to destroy the global economy, to rebuild it according to WEF’s One World Order, directed from the shadows by Big Finance, that the deregulation has helped it to become monstruous and all-dominating?

The derivative market is internationally highly interconnected. The collapse of a Casino Bank in the US may trigger banking failures in Indonesia. It is like a financial “butterfly effect”.

All that serves global dominance, to create a well-controlled and regulated One World Order, run on Central Bank Digital Currency – CBDC – with any parallel currency, crypto or else, strictly forbidden.

It is the international pharma industry married to international banking. The former controlled by WHO, the latter by the BIS – Bank for International Settlement.  Both based in Switzerland. As we know there are no coincidences.

So far it is just a plan – a diabolical plan, that We, the People can and must stop.

The Federal Reserve Increases Interest Rates amid Banking Crises

The Federal Reserve Increases Interest Rates amid Banking Crises

The Federal Reserve continued to increase interest rates by quarter of percent (25 basis points) on Wednesday, a decision subject to speculation by financial experts, as the central bank weighed reducing soaring inflation and the stability of the banking system.

The increase is the same point increase it implemented in February before the recent banking crises, though the 25 basis point increase in February was a reduction from the previous increases of 50 and 27 basis points respectively.

The Fed was stuck between a rock and a hard place. With the Fed increasing interest rates, banks could likely continue to struggle with liquidity and perhaps cause more bank failures. Not raising the interest rate would likely fuel inflation that previous interest rate hikes were intended to reduce.

According to Barron’s, past inflation and jobs data argued for continued increased interest rate hikes, while the recent banking crisis indicated a pause would be prudent.

Harvard Prof., Fmr. IMF Economist Rogoff: San Fran Fed Didn’t Know About SVB’s Problems, But Likely Knew ‘Their Carbon Footprint’:

It appears the Fed’s Wednesday decision attempted to balance both concerns.

The Fed had previously hiked the interest rate eight times since last March to a range of 4.5 percent to 4.75 percent. On Wednesday, it continued its march toward a projected target rate of 5.1 percent.

Before the recent banking crises, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell stated on March 7 that stronger-than-expected economic data meant the central bank would likely need to increase interest rates higher than previously anticipated.

But the rapid increase of interest rates over last year exposed weaknesses in the banking system, causing in part Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank to collapse. Over a week later, First Republic Bank was rescued with $30 billion worth of deposits and Credit Suisse was bought by UBS to prevent further collapses.

By mid-March, Moody’s Investors Service reduced its forecast for the U.S. banking system to negative from stable, placing six U.S. banks on review for potential credit rating downgrades.

“We have changed to negative from stable our outlook on the US banking system to reflect the rapid deterioration in the operating environment following deposit runs at Silicon Valley Bank (SVB), Silvergate Bank, and Signature Bank (SNY) and the failures of SVB and SNY,” Moody’s said.
