The Conservative Baptist Network claims on their website to be a partnership of Southern Baptists where all generations are encouraged, equip & empowered to bring positive, biblical solutions that strengthen SBC in an effort to fulfill the Great Commission & influence culture.

Feb 2020 | Brad Jurkovich announced Conservative Baptist Network, a grassroots movement of Southern Baptists “concerned about the current direction & perceived future of the Convention.” baptistmessage.com/lbc-pastor-cre…

Several Republican political figures are on the steering council, including former Arkansas Gov. Huckabee, former US Congressman Bob McEwen, and Family Research Council president Tony Perkins. christianitytoday.com/news/2020/octo…

They hold events called PASTOR PROPHET PATRIOT Freedom & Liberty One held at Truett McConnell, a Christian college "This dynamic event will encourage & equip Christians to engage culture and public policy with confidence & biblical conviction." truett.edu/event/pastor-p…

Key Note speaker Tony Perkins. Perkins was appointed to the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom By Mitch McConnell & recently reappointed. WHY DOES THE FEDERAL GOV EVEN HAVE THIS!? uscirf.gov/about-uscirf/c…

Perkins was also associated with Chuck DeVore who was part of the plot to overturn the will of the people in the 2020 election. twitter.com/gal_suburban/s…

You'll notice scrolling through the verbiage used by these affiliated religious organizations is quite reminiscent of language used to radicalize QAnon believers. This is likely not a coincidence.

Brad Jurkovich and a little trail I followed that led to "Truth Network" Liberty University's Standing for Freedom Center Heritage Action This damn LifeNewsHQ that I see constantly associated with the same people, but specifically Code of Vets.

Of course, Charlie Kirk, one of the most dangerous people in the country, is featured on this so-called "Truth" Network. (More to come on this)

Thiel hosted a dinner w/one of the most influential & vocal white nationalists in modern-day America — a man whos called for the creation of a white ethnostate & played a key role in to mainstream white nationalism as the “alt-right.” twitter.com/gal_suburban/s…

Thiel argued American politics would always be hostile to free-market ideals & politics was about interfering w/other people’s lives without their consent. Since then, he has hosted & attended events with white nationalists & alt-right figures. /11 buzzfeednews.com/article/rosieg…

“They trained this entire next generation of white nationalists,” Heimbach told @Luke O'Brien at HuffPost in 2016. highline.huffingtonpost.com/articles/en/al…

“I don’t think that Trump set out to inspire the alt-right, but we’ve been thrown into the same boat by our shared enemies, so he’s become an alt-right god,” Richard Spencer told me. “If you wear a Trump hat in many places, you might as well be wearing a swastika.” @Luke O'Brien

As an undergraduate, Spencer staged avant-garde plays & had a life-changing experience reading Nietzsche. In 2005, he began a doctoral program in European intellectual history at Duke. He was devouring the writing of racist intellectuals. twitter.com/gal_suburban/s…

Now I want to look at Peter Thiel's potential of being the silent leader of the so-called Patriot Caucus. @Dr Nafeez Ahmed FRSA of @Byline Times found that Thiel & a "Theil Network" are using 'free speech' to normalize white nationalism on UK Campuses

This UK-based ‘Thiel network’ first began to come together in 2017 – a year after Trump took office – with Thiel’s top chief of staff attending regular meetings and ongoing discussions with a small group of Christian theologians at Cambridge University’s Faculty of Divinity.

Darkest & little-known aspects – Peterson's admiration for a book described in Scientific American as “the flagship modern work reporting on racial differences in IQ score”. blogs.scientificamerican.com/voices/the-rea…

*Foreshadow* Aug 2016 Chuck Johnson explained he was interested in so-called “race realism” at a young age. At 16 he had already read the pseudoscientific book The Bell Curve, which posits that blacks are intellectually inferior to whites. angrywhitemen.org/2016/08/04/chu…

Described as an “alt-right darling”, Peterson has been widely criticized for claiming that gender & class hierarchies are a function of the natural order, despite having little meaningful expertise in these areas. He became an icon among far-right fans.

Peterson’s return wasnt a victory for ‘free speech’. Instead, the culmination of a concerted effort by “the Thiel network” to use free speech as a cover to wage #war on the perceived liberal threat to theological beliefs & normalize pseudoscientific theories of scientific racism.

2018, in discussion w/Douglas Murray – accused of promoting far-right conspiracy theories like the baseless ‘Great Replacement’ – Peterson once again approvingly referred to Charles Murray’s The Bell Curve.

Hosting of both Charles Murray & Jordan Peterson by Cambridge Univ academics is the culmination of an ongoing campaign to normalize anti-liberal ideas driven by individuals closely linked to Peter Thiel. Early meetings of the “Thiel network” first occurred around 2016 and 2017.

Peterson reached out to Thiel. Blake Masters, COO Thiel Capital, replied enthusiastically to arrange a meeting. Peterson met Thiel & engaged w/members of his team. They discussed an “unspecified future venture”. Peterson: archive.ph/MSmlM Masters: archive.ph/W0fom

This reminds me of when I was asking if In-Q-tel // Palantir looked QAnon-ish. 2019-Michael Kratsios, Thiel’s former chief of staff, was appointed chief technology officer for the WH, where he served as Trump’s top tech advisor. twitter.com/gal_suburban/s…

Another unexplained link to QAnon's network that hasn't been discussed. Ingersoll Lockwood Inc & Gary Miliefsky, chairman of the Cyber Defense Media Group twitter.com/gal_suburban/s…

But of all those things, the one that is most alarming is this. The link: www.iqt[dot]org/?source=Ingersoll-Lockwood-Inc The link no longer works, but "source = Ingersoll-Lickwood-Inc" IQT = In-Q-Tel In-Q-Tel is the venture capital firm that first invested in Palantir.

Thiel had allegedly met secretly w/influential leaders in the US white nationalist movement – including Kevin DeAnna, the main ideological architect of the alt-right. “He’s fully enlightened, plays it very carefully,” another far-right blogger wrote about Thiel to Yiannopoulos.

This activity appeared to follow shortly after Palantir’s alleged involvement in Cambridge Analytica, whereby employees from the firm helped it to engineer psychographic models used to build profiles of American and British voters. twitter.com/gal_suburban/s…

1/Story @Byline Times needs to be looked at. We need to understand what happened, who all was involved & there must be accountability to restore trust & integrity for the sake of Democracy. Did #CambridgeAnalytica Collude w/Russia's Intelligence Svcs TO INTERFERE IN US ELECTIONS?

“They believed transgender issues proved liberal agenda was going too far & their right to refuse it w/their own theological positions was under threat.” An increasing hostility toward liberalism became a focal point that made the group vulnerable to a gradual radicalization.

Recruitment efforts did not stop at staff in Cambridge & other universities. It extended to students, w/academics starting to recruit interns to work for Peter Thiel. “This was a deliberate & systematic effort to recruit people into the group & mold them in a certain direction”

It is, therefore, no surprise that apart from attempting to recruit staff and students into the worldview of the “Thiel network”, one academic claims that the group actively sought to influence Government policy.

The social connections of key Quillette contributors to the “Thiel network” around Cambridge University points to an alignment of interests & ideology illuminating the extent to which several Quillette writers & editors operate within Peter Thiel’s sphere of influence.

Standing in between them is Rob Henderson, who co-hosted Charles Murray in November at the Trinity Forum Europe event, and who is also a regular contributor to Quillette.

Henderson is now a ‘Foundation Faculty Fellow’ at a new anti-woke ‘free speech’ college linked to Peter Thiel – ‘University of Austin’ – launched earlier this year, where he is “actively participating” in its “curricular & institutional planning & design”. uaustin.org/news/joe-lonsd…

Members of this network characterize themselves as politically neutral, focused on defending free speech & promoting opposing views. But the links between this network and Peter Thiel appears to show that it is far from being non-partisan.

The parallels between Peter Thiel’s campaigning in the US and UK are revealing: Thiel’s chief of staff was involved in building up the UK ‘free speech’ network exactly while Thiel himself was ingratiating himself with the Trump administration and its white nationalist supporters.

It appears to be the brainchild of a transatlantic network of academics & journalists linked to Thiel. It raises disturbing questions about how the ‘free speech’ mantra can be cynically exploited by political lobbyists w/white nationalist sympathies. twitter.com/gal_suburban/s…

Since the 2020 election, they have met at least three times in New York and at Mar-a-Lago, sometimes with Masters or Vance. Thiel invested in McEntee’s company, which is building a dating app for conservatives called the RightStuff. /17 twitter.com/gal_suburban/s…

Far from wanting real free speech, their hope is to silence liberal speech that questions the entrenched hierarchies with which their most cherished interests and beliefs are entwined. twitter.com/gal_suburban/s…

OCT 31 2021 @Salon By PAUL ROSENBERG How extremist Christian theology is driving the right-wing assault on democracy The Texas abortion law is one step toward the true goal of Christian dominionism: Destroying democratic government salon.com/2021/10/31/how…

Dominionism is the theocratic idea that regardless of theological view, means, or timetable, Christians are called by God to exercise dominion over every aspect of society by taking control of political and cultural institutions.

Connection to the doctrine of the lesser magistrate is clear: Power comes from God not the people. Whatever the people want is irrelevant. Whatever laws they pass are irrelevant if they go against God. "Tyranny" is whatever the Christian reconstructionist decides he doesnt like.

This movement believes that rights come from God & not from any gov, therefore, any 'rights' that conflict w/their interpretation of God's law are not actually rights. Hillsdale College & Claremont's Larry Arnn teaches this: twitter.com/gal_suburban/s…

Hillsdale College's President Larry Arnn explains their interpretation of the laws of nature and nature's God. (Arnn was the previous Pres of the Claremont Institute). youtu.be/e6tc9IXejP0
