Dozens of witches say they plan to gather in New York City this month to hex Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who was sworn into the nation’s highest court last week.  Kavanaugh’s journey was a rough one, with women coming forward seemingly out of nowhere with allegations of sexual misconduct.

Those allegations (remember, allegations are simply accusations, not convictions) appear to be the reason the witches will gather on October 20 in order to hex the newest Supreme Court Justice. Dakota Bracciale, the Brooklyn-based witch who is organizing the hexing event, said the witches see the hex as a radical act of resistance that continues witchcraft’s long history as a refuge and weapon for the “oppressed, downtrodden and marginalized.” Bracciale is also the witch who organized three hexes against President Donald Trump last year.




“Witchcraft has been used throughout history as a tool and ally for people on the fringes of society who will not ever really get justice through the powers that be,” Bracciale told The Huffington Post. “So they have to exact their own justice.”  Bracciale added that the ritual is meant to be cathartic for alleged victims of sexual assault. Kavanaugh will apparently be the focal point for the hex, but not the only target. The public hex is meant to exact revenge on “all rapists and the patriarchy at large which emboldens, rewards and protects them,” a Facebook page dedicated to the event states.

According to USA Today, about 60 people will be in attendance at the pagan event on Saturday. The ritual will include effigies, coffin nails, graveyard dirt, and a spell, Bracciale told media outlets. Bracciale also said that not everyone in attendance will believe in the power of the hex but that won’t matter. According to Bracciale, the hexing event is, in part, nothing more than a means of spiritual or emotional catharsis. Immediately following the hex, a second ritual will be held, which is called “The Rites of the Scorned One,” according to the Facebook page.  It will “validate, affirm, uphold and support those of us who have been wronged and who refuse to be silent any longer.”

Hexes are “not something you do lightly,” Bracciale said to The Huffington Post, “but it is something you have in your arsenal or toolbox.”

Virtually no one had even heard of Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI) before the Kavanaugh hearings, but she has garnered her 15 minutes of fame, albeit to only demonstrate how absolutely incompetent she is.  Still, the senator from Hawaii stood right alongside Rep. Maxine Waters in her justification of harassing Republicans in public.

In an interview on CNN with Dana Bash, Hirono did not denounce such actions by Democrat supporters who want to form an angry mob like “Mad” Maxine Waters encouraged them to do to force Trump cabinet members out of the public square and threaten Trump supporters, but instead, sought to justify their criminal behavior.




From CNN.

BASH: The president, Republicans are saying Democratic protesters are, quote, ‘an angry mob.’ What I want to ask you about, it is one thing to protest the Supreme Court at the Capitol. That’s been done for generations and frankly since the founding of this country.

HIRONO: Yes.

BASH: It’s another thing to run senators out of restaurants and go to their homes. Is that going too far?

HIRONO: I think it just means that there are a lot of people who are very, very much motivated about what is going on. Because that happened with Judge Kavanaugh from the very beginning, this is not a fair process. What the Republicans did was to telegraph after Dr. Ford’s account came forward, what they telegraph was, one, Dr. Ford, we don’t want to hear from you. Two, if we have to hear from you, we will rig the hearing —

BASH: Should they be going after people at restaurants?

HIRONO: This is what happens because when you look at white supremacists and all that, this is what’s coming forth in our country. There is a  tremendous divisiveness in our country. This is the kind of activism that occurs and people make their own decisions.

Say what?  White supremacists and all that?  This woman has to be taken seriously enough in order to oust her out of her position of representation.

Saying that she thinks people are “motivated” and that the confirmation hearings were “not a fair process,” along with saying that such behavior is “people make their own decisions.”  That is not a denunciation of the criminal activity.

DNC Chair Tom Perez was right the first time when he uttered, “There are no moderate Democrats left.”

However, to cover herself, she threw in, “If they violate the law, then they have to account for that.”

Only Hirono won’t actually push for that, in the same manner that she claimed to have believed the lying Christine Ford, she is also saying in that same breath she believes Judge Kavanaugh lied under oath.  Every piece of evidence and every witness supported Kavanaugh, including Ford’s lifelong friend Leland Keyser, but Hirono doesn’t have the guts to actually try and hold Kavanaugh to a perjury charge.  Everything the Senate Democrats did was a political hit in those hearings.  It wasn’t about confirming a constitutional judge.  By the way, though Republican senators pretty much bent over backward for Dr. Ford, they weren’t really set on trying to understand if Judge Kavanaugh was constitutional or not either.

It was all a dog and pony show.

If you want to know if Democrats will be civil, you only need to listen to their former failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who said that Democrats will be civil once they regain power, but not until then.

That’s a lie too.  They haven’t been civil for a very long time.

Still, the fact that people in this country have debased themselves to the point of threatening to assassinate their political opponents and even their wives demonstrates the Hell that America is being turned into, not because we don’t elect Republicans, and not because we elect Democrats, but because we have turned from the Lord our God.  We have forgotten His goodness and mercy and grace that was shed upon our country and our forefathers for hundreds of years.  We have become a land of forgetfulness because we have failed to teach our children about the God who established us, who gave us our rights and established government to protect those rights and punish true criminals.

If the day comes that we are awakened to our own sinfulness and repent of it, then, and only then, will we see the hand of God move here and heal our land.  Until then, expect things to only get worse.

Last week the United States, Mexico, and Canada agreed to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with a new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). Sadly, instead of replacing NAFTA’s managed trade with true free trade, the new USMCA expands government’s control over trade.

For example, under the USMCA’s “rules of origin,” at least 75 percent of a car’s parts must be from the US, Canada, or Mexico in order to avoid tariffs. This is protectionism designed to raise prices of cars using materials from outside North America.

The USMCA also requires that 40 to 45 percent of an automobile’s content be made by workers earning at least 16 dollars per hour. Like all government-set wages, this requirement will increase prices and decrease employment.

The USMCA also requires Mexico to pass legislation recognizing the “right of collective bargaining.” In other words, this so-called free trade agreement forces Mexico to import US-style compulsory unionism. If the Mexican legislature does not comply, the US and Canada will impose tariffs on Mexican goods.




The USMCA also requires the three countries to abide by the International Labour Organization (ILO) standards for worker rights. So, if, for example, the bureaucrats at the ILO declared that Right to Work laws violate “international labor standards”’ because they weaken collective bargaining and give Right to Work states an unfair advantage over compulsory unionism states and countries, the federal government may have to nullify all state Right to Work laws.

The USMCA also obligates the three countries to work together to improve air quality. This sounds harmless but could be used as a backdoor way to impose costly new regulations and taxes, such as a cap-and-trade scheme, on America.

This agreement also forbids the use of currency devaluation as a means of attempting to gain a competitive advantage in international trade. Enforcement of this provision will be difficult if not impossible, as no central bank will ever admit it is devaluing currency to obtain a competitive advantage in international trade. Of course, given that the very act of creating money lowers its value, the only way to stop central banks from devaluing currency is to put them out of business. Sadly, I don’t think the drafters of the USMCA seek to restore free-market money.

The currency provision will likely be used to justify coordination of monetary policy between the Federal Reserve and the Mexican and Canadian central banks. This will lead to region-wide inflation and a global currency war as the US pressures Mexico and Canada to help the Fed counter other countries’ alleged currency manipulation and challenges to the dollar’s reserve currency status.

A true free trade deal would simply reduce or eliminate tariffs and other trade barriers. It would not dictate wages and labor standards, or require inter-governmental cooperation on environmental standards and monetary policy. A true free trade deal also would not, as the USMCA does, list acceptable names for types of cheeses.

Those of us who support real free trade must not let supporters of the USMCA get away with claiming the USMCA has anything to do with free trade. We must also fight the forces of protectionism that are threatening to start a destructive trade war. Also, we must work to stop the government from trying to control our economic activities through regulations, taxes, and (most importantly) control of the currency through central banking and legal tender laws.

A writer for CBS‘s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” seemingly celebrated the damage done to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s life in a social media post. “Whatever happens, I’m just glad we ruined Brett Kavanaugh’s life,” the writer, Ariel Dumas, posted on Twitter.

Dumas then made her Twitter account private to prevent any backlash over the joy she obtained from destroying a man’s reputation. Her Tweet came as the Senate confirmed Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court by a 50-48 vote, with some Senators saying that the several allegations of decades-old sexual misconduct brought against him simply lacked sufficient corroboration and credibility.

According to Fox News, the tweet has now been deleted and Dumas apologized on Sunday, claiming she was being “sarcastic.” She alleges her sarcasm was all because Kavanaugh’s elevation to the Supreme Court demonstrated that his life had not, in fact, been entirely derailed by the accusations as some Republicans had claimed. So, you mean some people actually still think you are innocent until proven guilty? Oh, the horror…

“The last couple of weeks have been hard for the country and for me personally,” Dumas wrote. “The complexity of frustration, anger and sadness can’t be accurately conveyed on twitter, and I regret my tone-deaf attempt at sarcasm in the wake of it.”

Dumas had also posted many other anti-Kavanaugh Tweets to her account, including this gem: “Brett Kavanaugh is 100% gonna ask Justice Sotomayor to fetch him coffee.”




Dumas also criticized Kavanaugh for invoking his family in a Wall Street Journal op-ed, saying, “It is not automatically a moral achievement to be a son, a husband, a dad. It is biology, a legal decision, and biology again. Plenty of a–holes are all three.”

When Dumas was reached for further comment by Fox News, CBS said Dumas’ “apology spoke for itself.” The network confirmed that Dumas currently works for Colbert’s left-leaning show.

Dumas’ IMDB page lists that in addition to “The Late Show,” she has worked on “Stephen Colbert’s Live Election Night Democracy’s Series Finale: Who’s Going to Clean Up This Sh*t?” as well as the 2017 Emmy Awards, which were hosted by Colbert. Both events were markedly and caustically anti-Trump throughout. For his part, President Trump tweeted at the time that he was “sad” to see that the Emmy Awards had their “worst ever” ratings.

If you ever wondered about the power of the internet, wonder no more. The pressure that readers across the nation – and the world – put on officials in Wayne County, North Carolina regarding the arrest of Tammy Hedges for rescuing and caring for animals during Hurricane Florence was relentless enough that all the charges have been dropped.

Ms. Hedges’ organization released the following statement:

We are very blessed that the charges against our founder, Tammie Hedges, have been dismissed. We remain optimistic that no other charges will be filed, and that this is the end to a terrible, terrible situation. We hope to devote time and energy to our rescue, Crazy’s Claws N Paws, and to our renovation of our dream project. We strive for a lifelong dedication to working with state and local law enforcement to make North Carolina safe for our animals.

We cannot begin to express our heartfelt appreciation for the outpouring of support, globally, for CCNP’s founder, Tammie Hedges.

We wish to personally thank RAINA NYLIRAM from Langhorne, PA for her generosity, foresight, and love for animal security by starting the first GOFUNDME account. Although we do not know you, we are sisters in the fight for animal welfare. If you are ever in our area, please make some time for CCNP!

ESOR SAFARI from Trenton, NJ, and WENDY MAY from NC, we’d also like to thank you! Your GOFUNDME charity is much appreciated as well. Please, if you ever are in the area, come visit with us!

This experience has unified rescues and has made our organization realize that not only do we need to be vigilant in our rescue efforts but, also in our legislative efforts to foster animal welfare laws that are conducive to actually helping owners, rescuers, and animals. (source)

Thank you, Tammy Hedges, for doing the right thing by those animals. I’m so glad these ridiculous charges were dismissed. I’m thrilled that I get to report such wonderful news today.




Let’s remember how freedom won.

I know that many readers of The Organic Prepper took the time to send emails to the officials involved in Ms. Hedges’ arrest and also made contributions to her legal defense fund.

Please know that your efforts made a difference.

By standing together and making an outcry too loud to ignore, freedom won this time around. By refusing to quietly allow the prosecution of a good Samaritan, freedom won. By calling out a government out of control, freedom won.

Please remember this in the future. When you see injustice, speak up. All our voices combined are very powerful. We don’t have to allow our rights to be trampled upon by greedy governments that want us to get “permission” for every little thing. But if we silently allow it, our rights will disappear one by one. I think it even makes us complicit.

Remember this.

The people do have power. We should use it more often.
