Four reasons to make certain the press feel the heat


  1. “Christian” magazine calls for Trump’s removal

Christianity Today took another step toward main stream media when it quoted only from the Democrat side of the impeachment scandal and parroted the Democrat call for the President’s removal.

n our founding documents, Billy Graham explains that Christianity Today will help evangelical Christians interpret the news in a manner that reflects their faith. The impeachment of Donald Trump is a significant event in the story of our republic. It requires comment.

The typical CT approach is to stay above the fray and allow Christians with different political convictions to make their arguments in the public square, to encourage all to pursue justice according to their convictions and treat their political opposition as charitably as possible. We want CT to be a place that welcomes Christians from across the political spectrum, and reminds everyone that politics is not the end and purpose of our being. We take pride in the fact, for instance, that politics does not dominate our homepage.

That said, we do feel it necessary from time to time to make our own opinions on political matters clear—always, as Graham encouraged us, doing so with both conviction and love. We love and pray for our president, as we love and pray for leaders (as well as ordinary citizens) on both sides of the political aisle.

Let’s grant this to the president: The Democrats have had it out for him from day one, and therefore nearly everything they do is under a cloud of partisan suspicion. This has led many to suspect not only motives but facts in these recent impeachment hearings. And, no, Mr. Trump did not have a serious opportunity to offer his side of the story in the House hearings on impeachment.

But the facts in this instance are unambiguous: The president of the United States attempted to use his political power to coerce a foreign leader to harass and discredit one of the president’s political opponents. That is not only a violation of the Constitution; more importantly, it is profoundly immoral.

This magazine’s un-Christian act follows a tradition of pro-media, anti-Christian comments

This “Christian” magazine made this assertion just as Christianity Today previously tried to convince Christians of the rightness of:

  • Accepting the world’s view of welfare over promoting charity within the church and
  • Not standing against the deviancy of transgenderism (although the magazine does not mention the high suicide rate of transgenderism).

Christianity Today has decided to try to convince Christians to stand against the continued presidency of Donald Trump. However, there are these problems with their argument:

  1. They did not consider the testimony of Representative Doug Collins in the last day of debate where he said:

    As constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley (and I would challenge to say he’s probably the most respected — and we all know it — a Democrat who did not vote for the President) said under oath, “There was no bribery. There was no extortion, no obstruction of justice, and no abuse of power.” Based on the facts, based on the truth, based on the lack of evidence, Turley called it “the fastest, thinnest, and weakest impeachment in the U.S. history.” Such a definitive answer should be the end of all of this.

  2. If talking to world leaders and making quid-pro-quo deals is their problem, one must ask why they did not apply the same standard to Obama (who was whittling away our missile defenses) when he was caught on a live microphone talking to Russian President Medvedev:

    Tell Vlad, after the election, I’ll be more flexible.

  3. If corruption is an issue for the Christianity Today, one has to ask why they did not hold Senator Menendez to their high standard (and, notably, he still serves as a Democrat). For we all know that the Daily Mail reported:

    Senator Bob Menendez only ‘likes the youngest and newest girls’ says Dominican prostitute who ‘attended alleged sex parties with him’

  4. For all of their articles on forgiving the ways of the world and deviance like transgenderism &mdash this article included — I do not remember that many articles telling us to forgive Donald Trump.

For an alternate view from their Democrat-parroting, anti-Biblical view, consider the quotes and tweets cited by the Daily Caller. Chief among the tweets cited are the following:



  1. NYT Editorial Board: ‘Impeach’ Trump, But ‘Resist The Pull Of Partisanship’

The Daily Caller points out how the New York Times wants to seem unbiased while being biased.

The New York Times editorial board suggested Saturday that Congress needs to impeach President Donald Trump.

“In the end, the story told by the two articles of impeachment approved on Friday morning by the House Judiciary Committee is short, simple and damning,” The Times wrote.

“President Donald Trump abused the power of his office by strong-arming Ukraine, a vulnerable ally, holding up hundreds of millions of dollars in military aid until it agreed to help him influence the 2020 election by digging up dirt on a political rival,” the board argued in what is a recapitulation of what House Democrats have been saying since start of the impeachment inquiry drama.

The Times suggested the president was “caught in the act” and then proceeded to show “unprecedented, categorical and indiscriminate defiance” even after being issued multiple subpoenas. Because Trump “made it impossible for Congress to carry out fully its constitutionally mandated oversight role,” the editors accuse the president of trespassing “the separation of powers, a safeguard of the American republic.”

The Times noted that impeachment will move to the full House of Representatives on Wednesday.

For reasons like those shown in the above article, we need to resist the NYTwits

We need to avoid the NYTwit app. We need not pick up a paper copy of that vile rag. And, unless it is needed to prove a point with some idiot lib who still accepts them as a “paper of record,” there is no reason to reference the online version (as I have for the reason of trying to convince those who see it as a “paper of record.”)

Mind you, here, I did not actually refer first to the NYTwits.

  1. Unfit To Print Episode 34: IG Report Debunks Media’s Biggest Lies

The Daily Caller took the IG report and debunked the media’s biggest lies.

The IG report on FISA abuse finally dropped this week, and the media is still reeling from all of the lies it uncovered.

In this special episode of “Unfit to Print,” host Amber Athey is running through the craziest things the media said about Rep. Devin Nunes, the Steele dossier, Carter Page, and more.

Namely, the IG report found that the Steele dossier was “internet rumor” yet was used by the FBI to launch illegal surveillance against the Trump campaign’s Carter Page, who was falsely accused of being a Russian agent.

The media is going to be very embarrassed this week as they run through all of the silly things they said about Crossfire Hurricane — CNN has already issued a correction admitting the campaign was spied on by “confidential human informants.”

Of course, Carter Page should be able to sue the socks off of multiple entities

Without listening to this review, I can tell you that the IG report revealed 17 instances where the law was broken. While the IG says that there was no biases evident within the FBI, that may only mean that nobody confessed.

  1. Local media admits a border wall in Laredo will happen, like it or not

The Laredo Morning Times reports in a 16 December 2019 article something that the main stream media wants to ignore or deny. The border wall will be built in Laredo.

With or without Congress’ blessing, the Trump administration is moving money around to fund the construction of a wall in Laredo — and they’re acting quickly.

In his meeting with Laredo officials this week, Mark Morgan, acting commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, was upfront about the “different pockets of money” they have to fund wall construction in Laredo, according to Mayor Pete Saenz.

“He was clear. ‘We’ve got the money, we’re moving forward, whether you cooperate or not,’” Saenz recalled of their conversation. “… I thought we had more leverage going in, but apparently not.”

President Donald Trump is demanding that 450 miles of border wall be constructed in 2020, which would mark the fulfillment of his campaign promise in time for the November election.

And Webb and Zapata counties are wall-free and ripe for the taking as far as the Department of Homeland Security is concerned. This stretch of riverfront is their first priority for new wall construction.

Even as Trump’s ability to use budgeted military funding for wall construction has been shot down by two federal district judges, officials are planning to use more of this money plus counternarcotics funding to get the wall built in and around Laredo, according to Rep. Henry Cuellar.

Plus, Congress is lined up to appropriate another $1.4 billion for the border wall next week in order to avoid another government shutdown.

But if the city were to cooperate with the Trump administration, they could receive a little reward — a mile of more aesthetically pleasing, levee-style wall from the railroad bridge to bridge 2, leaving an unimpeded view of Mexico from the Outlet Shoppes, La Posada Hotel and Tres Laredos Park.

This is called a bulkhead. It would create a kind of sharp cliff above the river, and serve as a promenade and sloping park above.

The price will be City Council’s signature on right of entry documents for the feds to conduct surveys on the rest of their 10 miles of riverfront property, from Laredo College to Slaughter Park.

This is the Trump administration’s key to what they need most: speed.

If a local paper can figure it out, why can’t the main stream media?

Of course, they probably have. They just want to keep you in the dark.

Five stories that happened while Democrats pushed the impeachment scam


  1. New round of murderers, sex offenders, gangsters nabbed at border

OneNewsNow reports on a round of murderers, sex offenders, and cartel members caught at the border.

Border Patrol Chief Carla ProvostBorder Patrol Chief Carla Provost announced that over the past two months, scores of felons have been nabbed before breaking into the United States at the southern border.

“Since the beginning of the new fiscal year, which started in October, U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents have arrested dozens of sex offenders, convicted murderers and violent gang members attempting to enter the United States illegally,” Townhall reported.

Nabbing the importing of crime

Last month, a medley of dangerous gang members was apprehended before they had the opportunity to victimize American citizens – again.

“In October – just starting the new fiscal year – Border Patrol agents have already arrested 55 gang members,” Provost tweeted Thursday. “They are affiliated with, among others: Paisas, Surenos, MS-13, Latin Kings [and] 18th Street.

Preventative measures along the southern border of the Lone Star State have effectively curbed crime before it happens.

“Agents apprehended a convicted murderer as he attempted to illegally reenter the United States near Carrizo Springs TX,” the USBP Chief posted on Twitter Thursday. “Strong border security is necessary to identify & prevent dangerous people like this from entering the country.”

Last month alone, hundreds of illegals with criminal track records were nabbed before they could commit more crimes in America.

“Already this fiscal year – in the month of October – Border Patrol agents arrested 292 aliens with prior criminal convictions,” Provost announced in her recent series of tweets. “307 criminal aliens encountered by agents in October were found to be wanted by law enforcement or had outstanding warrants.”

It is reported that U.S. citizens living in border states are enjoying higher levels of security as Border Patrol ramps up its effort to keep neighborhoods in the states safe.

“Border Patrol agents in @CBPRGV, TX, arrested 2 convicted murderers in separate events in recent days – one w/ a conviction out of San Diego County, CA, & the other out of McAllen, TX,” Provost tweeted Tuesday. “We’re here to keep dangerous people from entering the community.”

Many attempted repeat sexual offenders are being nabbed before they can find new victims in America.

“Border Patrol agents arrested a previously deported sex offender as he attempted to illegally reenter the United States near Calexico, CA,” another Twitter post from Provost read on Monday. “The man has a prior conviction for assault with sexual motivation out of Clark County, WA.”

Children are also reaping the benefits of heightened security.

“Border Patrol arrested a sex offender near Dulzura, CA, for illegal reentry,” Border Patrol tweeted on November 15. “He has a prior conviction, w/an 8-year sentence, for continuous sexual abuse of a child out of CA. Strong border security helps keep criminals off the street.”

Any news of success at the border seems to have recently been lost

Just as the media has forgotten this story, they have glossed over the 78 miles of replacement wall and 450 miles of wall planned finished by 2020. Likewise, they have ignored the efforts of private group We Build the Wall as they continue to build in South Texas.

  1. Twitter Allows Pedophiles to Discuss Attraction to Minors

Breitbart notes in a 26 November 2019 article that Twitter now allows pedophiles to discuss attraction to minors.

TwitterLogoIn the past week alone, it was reported that Twitter has suspended journalist Andy Ngo for tweeting inconvenient facts about the purported “epidemic” of transgender deaths, and undercover journalism organization Project Veritas from running recruitment ads. But if you’re a pedophile who wants to discuss your attraction to minors — Twitter’s just fine with that.

Big League Politics discovered a little-noticed, quietly enacted Twitter rule change from March, which says “Discussions related to child sexual exploitation as a phenomenon or attraction towards minors are permitted, provided they don’t promote or glorify child sexual exploitation in any way.”

So, if you post politically inconvenient yet accurate statistical facts, as Ngo did, you get suspended. But if you discuss “attraction towards minors,” Twitter explicitly allows it.

It goes without saying that Twitter’s policy did not arise out of some blanket commitment to free speech. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has specifically rejected such commitments, rubbishing the idea that Twitter is the “free speech wing of the free speech party,” as one VP at the company described it in 2012.

In an interview with Wired last year, Dorsey said that the “free speech wing” comment was a “joke” that was taken too seriously.

“This quote around ‘free speech wing of the free speech party’ was never, was never a mission of the company. It was never a descriptor of the company that we gave ourselves,” said Dorsey.

The Twitter CEO continued, saying that a commitment to free speech “comes with the realization that freedom of expression may adversely impact other people’s fundamental human rights, such as privacy, such as physical security.”

Over recent years, the trends in deviant sexuality seem to center on the children

Whether we are talking about the recent instances of Drag Queen story hour at local libraries or the court cases of pastors who stood against having molesters read to young children, all of it has to do with the children.

Therefore, it is most important that Christians focus on our mandate from God to protect children in Psalm 82:3; Proverbs 31:8-9; Isaiah 1:17; James 1:27, and a number of other verses. Additionally, in Luke 17:2 and Matthew 18:6, we are warned “whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.” So, care must be taken to protect children from stumbling.

  1. Five-Time Freed Illegal Alien Accused of Killing 70-Year-Old Father of Two

Breitbart reports in a 26 November 2019 article that a 70-year-old American has been killed by an illegal alien who was freed five times.

Ulises Mondragon UmanzorAn illegal alien who was repeatedly freed from Florida law enforcement custody is now accused of killing a 70-year-old husband and father of two in a hit-and-run crash.

Ulises Mondragon Umanzor, a 30-year-old illegal alien from El Salvador, allegedly illegally drove a forklift while illegally working for a construction company and hit 70-year-old James “Jim” Zakos, according to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office.

While Zakos was rushed to the hospital and pronounced dead, Umanzor allegedly fled the crash and eventually got off the forklift and walked away even as an eyewitness told him to return to the traffic accident scene.

Zakos, his obituary notes, leaves behind his two children, Alexandra and TJ, his wife Celine, his two sisters Maria and Margaret, and his parents Thomas and Catherine.

“Many will smile when they hear his name,” his obituary states.

According to records, Umanzor was arrested in September 2011 in Palm Beach County for driving without a license and driving with an open container of alcohol. Despite being an illegal alien, he was released and re-arrested in February 2012 for again driving without a license.

After again being released from custody, Umanzor was arrested in November 2012 for possession of cocaine. The illegal alien was released again from custody and arrested in September 2016 and May 2018 for driving without a license.

Much like the illegal alien who murdered Kate Steinle, this illegal alien might provoke Americans to awareness

Hopefully, this will cause an up-welling in the hearts of Americans.

However, the truth of the matter is that this burdens me too much to see straight. While we cannot victimize the innocent (and especially my neighbors who have lived in Texas, New Mexico, and other border states for generations), we also cannot allow our governments to release offenders multiple times just because the bureaucrats feel like acting out social justice warrior tendencies.

  1. Florida court says Ilhan Omar is a Qatari asset who passed secrets to Iran

The Washington Examiner reports from a Florida court that an accused jihadi has implicated Ilhan Omar in a purported international scheme.

IlhanOmarIlhan Omar, the Minnesota congresswoman, has said she is the victim of Saudi propaganda after she was accused of being a “Qatari asset” and conduit to Iran during a Florida court case.

Kuwaiti-born Canadian businessman Alan Bender testified in the recent trial of Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad al Thani, a member of the Qatari royal family who is accused of ordering his American bodyguard to murder two people and of holding an American citizen hostage. His deposition was obtained by Saudi-funded outlet Al Arabiya English, which reported the allegations Monday.

A representative for Omar responded: “Since the day she was elected, Saudi Arabian trolls and mouthpieces have targeted Omar with misinformation and conspiracy theories. The latest, outlandishly absurd story from a Saudi-funded media outlet is, of course, false and only the latest in that trend.”

According to Bender, three Qatari officials asked him to recruit American politicians to be Qatari assets. He added he was told when he objected that several people were already on the payroll, including Omar, whom they called the “jewel in the crown.”

Bender said Qatar’s Secretary to the Emir for Security Affairs Mohammad bin Ahmed bin Abdullah al Masnad told him that the country “recruited Ilhan Omar from even way before she thought about becoming a government official … They groomed her and arranged the foundation, the grounds, for her to get into politics way before she even showed interest. They convinced her.”

He alleged that Omar cooperated with Qatar’s request and received cash payments. He also claimed that she used her position in the House of Representatives to access sensitive information, which she relayed to Qatar and through them Iran. According to the deposition, Bender further told the court that Omar actively recruited other politicians on behalf of the nation.

“If it wasn’t for our cash, Ilhan Omar would be just another black Somali refugee in America collecting welfare and serving tables on weekends,” he claimed the officials told him.

Several journalists have pointed out that they have seen no evidence to back up Bender’s claims and warned that the allegations against Omar could be part of a Saudi disinformation campaign, considering Qatar’s shaky historical relationship with the country and the fact that a Saudi-backed publication first picked up the deposition. In 2017, Saudi Arabia cut its diplomatic ties with Qatar.

On the day of the first accusations against Kavanaugh, Omar called for him to step down

On the first day of accusations against now-Justice Kavanaugh, Representative Omar called for him to leave the public eye and step down. After his confirmation, she called for the impeachment of Kavanaugh and Trump.


And, in the mean time, when Representative Omar made multiple anti-Semitic statements that she would not retract, she sent out her surrogates to make excuses for her.

Why, now, does Omar expect that an immediate price might not be asked of her?

  1. Chick-fil-A donates thousands of dollars to Southern Poverty Law Center during 2017

OneNewsNow reports that the Family Research Center was angered by the donation of $2,500 to the Southern Poverty Law Center. Considering that the attempted assassin of the FRC personnel got his information from the SPLC, this seems more than understandable.

A mega-popular fast-food chain that has been the target of left-wing hate for years has been tied to a far-left organization that targets conservatives.

splc_southern_poverty_law_center_1024_512_75_s_c1
Southern Poverty Law Center

A blistering Townhall.com story published Nov. 26 reports the Chick-fil-A Foundation donated $2,500 in 2017 to the Southern Poverty Law Center, a donation that angered the D.C.-based Family Research Council and its president, Tony Perkins.

“It’s time for Christians,” Perkins concludes, “to find a fast food alternative to Chick-fil-A.”

One obvious reason for such a statement is Chick-fil-A’s history: The company has stood out from liberal-supporting corporations for its Christian-based roots, and for its generous donations to faith-based causes. Yet those donations have now ceased after Chick-fil-A endured years of left-wing outrage over its CEO’s personal stance on biblical marriage and because the company is expanding into liberal enclaves, such as Toronto, where the Chick-fil-A brand is unwelcome.

A second reason for Perkins’ frustration is more personal: A far-left gunman used the SPLC “hate map” in 2012 to choose FRC as a target. Only a scuffle in the FRC lobby with building manager Leo Johnson, who was wounded, prevented a mass attack on the FRC staff.

The gunman told the FBI he chose FRC due to the SPLC website. He entered the building with a bag of Chick-fil-A sandwiches, planning to place them on the bodies of his dead victims.

FRC and Perkins fired off an email to supporters Wednesday morning, linking to the Townhall story and blasting Chick-fil-A for not only turning its back on groups such as The Salvation Army but for donating to “one of the most extreme anti-Christian groups in America.”

The Townhall story, written by pro-life activist Ryan Bomberger, digs into years of Chick-fil-A donations that are listed in required IRS forms known as 990s. The story lists numerous other donations to left-wing causes, too, at the same time the corporation is under fire for breaking ties with groups such as The Salvation Army and Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

The regularity of revelations regarding Chick-Fil-A almost points toward a campaign

Considering that, until the week of 22 November 2019, few knew of the charitable giving habits of corporate Chick-Fil-A and that the details of Chick-Fil-A’s giving seem to have switched from supporting Christian charities who guide and aid the poor to supporting social justice causes aligned with the left and LGBT agenda.

However, in truth, it seems that Chick-Fil-A capitulated in 2017 and has been attempting to walk the rail of the fence for several years. By the fact that the LGBTQ crowd has not backed off in the least in making additional demands, this jumping of paths seems counter-intuitive. That is, rather than following the commands of the Bible where we are told to prefer one another in brotherly love (Romans 12:10) — Chick-Fil-A decides to fake it and try to appease the world.

At that point three points from Christian thinking present themselves:

  • First, nothing remains a secret. As the Bible says,

    Accordingly, whatever you have said in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in the inner rooms will be proclaimed upon the housetops. (Luke 12:3 NASB)

     

  • Second, you cannot have two masters. You cannot align yourself with those who would support ongoing sexual deviancy and those who walk with God. Mind you, all of us fall, but Christians get up from the sin and try to re-align themselves with God.

    No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth. (Matthew 6:24 NASB)

  • Finally, although I cannot tell you the spiritual condition of those who made decisions for Chick-Fil-A, it would seem that those decisions are bearing fruit.

    So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. (Matthew 7:17 NASB)

Good news that went unreported in main stream media


74 Miles of Border Wall Completed, 158 More Under Construction

In a 26 October 2019 Breitbart article, we get a report on the 74 miles of border wall completed and the 158 miles still under construction.

WallBorder Patrol officials say communities along the border are safer following the completion of 74 miles of improved border wall systems. Those systems include 30-foot bollard walls, new border-access roads, lighting, and electronic surveillance. Construction on an additional 158 miles is underway with 450 miles scheduled to be completed by the end of 2020.

Construction crews under the direction of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) issued a report on Friday showing the completion of 74 miles of replacement border wall systems along the southwestern border with Mexico. Officials stated that 158 miles of additional walls are currently under construction and 276 miles are in a “pre-construction phase,” according to information provided to Breitbart News by CBP officials.

The new border wall system in Calexico, California, is the first section of replacement wall to be completed, El Centro Sector Assistant Chief Patrol Agent Joshua C. Devack said in a video presentation on Friday. “Since the border wall system was completed in this area, local business and commerce is thriving and areas once considered dangerous are now secure,” Devack stated. “In addition, overall crime in this area has been significantly reduced thus making our community a safer place to live and work.”

Prior to the new wall systems installed in January 2017, many sections of the border were relatively unsecured. Those areas consisted of landing mat walls that could easily be cut or climbed and other barriers designed only to stop vehicle traffic, Devack reported. The newly completed wall system includes 30-foot high bollard walls, new border-access roads allowing faster response by agents, additional lighting, and electronic surveillance systems, which provide advance warning and faster detection of border-crossing activities.

Nobody in the main stream press will report this win

humantraffickingJust as they will not report the reduction in human trafficking due to the construction of the border wall, main stream media outlets refuse to credit President Trump for building the wall.

Oddly, in the age of #MeToo, none of the main stream media want to champion a wall that reduces forced prostitution, forced marriage, child abduction, and other similar crimes.

Although their hypocrisy sticks in my craw, the opportunity for news distribution by alternative news sources does find support with me. In other words, I like supporting outlets like Breitbart, One America News, and Newsmax by visiting their websites and buying products there.

Lives saved: nine illegal aliens rescued from Texas border river

Breitbart continues its tradition of reporting on the heroics of Customs and Border Control agents.

Del-Rio-Migrant-RescueBorder Patrol agents assigned to the Texas-Mexico border region rescued nine migrant family members in two incidents from possibly drowning while illegally crossing the border from Mexico. The incidents occurred in the El Paso and Del Rio Sectors.

Del Rio Station Marine Unit agents patrolling the Rio Grande near the Del Rio Port of Entry on October 17 encountered a group of six Haitian migrants attempting to wade across the swiftly moving river currents. The group included two infants, according to information obtained from Del Rio Sector Border Patrol officials.

The agents observed the group appearing to struggle during the crossing and maneuvered their boat into position to affect a rescue. The agents pulled the Haitian migrants, including two children under the age of one, into their boat and transported them to the bank where ground-based agents evaluated their medical condition. The agents determined none of the migrants sustained injuries and transported them to the Del Rio Station for processing under current U.S. Customs and Border Protection guidelines.

Again, the main stream will not report heroics of the Border Patrol

Served_Congress_twice_subpoenaed_Bryan_PaglianoJust as Jeff Sessions would not prosecute Bryan Pagliano because he was “too close to Hillary,” the main stream media will not cover the saving of illegal aliens by Border Patrol agents because those agents are “too close to Trump.” Acknowledging the heroics of the Border Patrol would, in effect, provide a win for President Donald Trump in their eyes.

And, as the unhinged headlines on the Washington Post show, those members of the main stream media will not give an inch to President Trump.

Durham’s probe into possible FBI misconduct expanded based on new evidence, sources say

According to a 22 October 2019 article at Fox News, several sources report that Durham’s investigation into FBI misconduct has been based on new evidence.

U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the FBI’s 2016 Russia probe has expanded based on new evidence uncovered during a recent trip to Rome with Attorney General Bill Barr, sources told Fox News on Tuesday.

The sources said Durham was “very interested” to question former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former CIA Director John Brennan, an anti-Trump critic who recently dismissed the idea.

The two Obama administration officials were at the helm when the unverified and largely discredited Steele dossier, written by British ex-spy Christopher Steele and funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee, was used to justify a secret surveillance warrant against former Trump adviser Carter Page.

In Italy, Barr reportedly told embassy officials he “needed a conference room to meet high-level Italian security agents where he could be sure no one was listening in.”

A source in the Italian Ministry of Justice told The Daily Beast earlier this month that Barr and Durham were played a taped deposition made by Joseph Mifsud, the professor who allegedly told ex-Trump aide George Papadopoulos that the Russians had “dirt” on Hillary Clinton. Mifsud reportedly was explaining to authorities in the deposition why people would want to harm him, and why he needed police protection.

Papadopoulos has suggested he was connected with Mifsud as part of a setup orchestrated by intelligence agencies.

Additionally, reports have it that FBI top lawyer James Baker may be turning

According to the Washington Examiner and other sources, the FBI’s former top lawyer James Baker (pictured at the top of this post) may be cooperating with the investigation. If this is true, James Comey and other players in the Obama-FBI soft coup against Trump might want to have their own deals in place (or be in a country that has no extradition treaty with the United States).

Texas Right to Life got a voice outside the Texas Democrat debate

According to Texas Right to Life, they were able to provide a strong pro-life voice outside of the Houston Democrat Debate (even though it was totally embargoed by the main stream media and the local press).

Pro-life-democratic-debate-billboard-abortion-1Today, 10 of the most radical anti-Life Democrats will take the debate stage in Houston, trying to convince America — and more importantly, Texas — to vote pro-abortion in 2020.

But the media and the Democratic Party want to hide the issue of abortion at all costs! They know their position is out-of-step with most Americans; that’s why moderators didn’t ask about abortion in the last debate, and other than crazy Kamala Harris, none of the candidates dared to bring up their stance.

Analysts agree that Democrats have a real chance at turning Texas blue. You must expose them now… before we’re too late.

Thanks to your support thus far, Texas Right to Life will launch a Pro-Life billboard truck outside tonight’s Houston debate.

The message “Abortion separates children from their families” will make candidates and voters consider the issue, but only YOU can make them pick a side: Life or death. Biblical truth or anti-Life lies.

Your gift today can expose Democrats’ abortion agenda.

The Democratic Party platform calls the decision to murder an innocent unborn child a “right,” and every major candidate in the field supports totally unrestricted abortions until birth (sometimes even after birth!) with taxpayers like you footing the bill!!

And these Democrats are cunning. They know that only 6% of Americans agree with this rabidly anti-Life platform, so the mainstream media covering tonight’s debate will do everything possible to hide and disguise the abortion holocaust.

If I had not seen this truck, I would not have known to search the news venues for it

Had I not been required by my daily commute to drive by the outskirts of TSU on the day of the debate, I would not have known about the presence of this truck. Additionally, had the Texas Right to Life not posted a picture of their truck on Facebook, I would not have been able to provide a picture (since I’m not so good at taking pictures on the fly while driving).

Therefore, I have to both scold local media for not covering the whole story provided by the Democrat debate and thank Texas Right to Life for their getting the word out themselves.

President Trump is “stacking” the 9th Circuit

We hear through the Daily Caller that President Trump has been accused of “stacking” a court that continually gets overruled.

TrumpWinningPresident Donald Trump named two nominees for the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday, tapping a federal prosecutor and a conservative appellate lawyer for the west coast court.

The nominees, Patrick Bumatay and Lawrence VanDyke, are likely to elicit strong opposition for Democrats. If confirmed, the pair would raise the number of Trump’s 9th Circuit appointees to nine, with one other nomination pending.

Trump has clashed frequently with the 9th Circuit, which upheld injunctions against top administration policy priorities like the travel ban. His criticisms drew a rare rebuke from Chief Justice John Roberts, who rejected Trump’s charge that judges are sometimes motivated by politics.

Friday’s nomination is the latest twist in Bumatay’s meandering path to the federal bench. Trump nominated Bumatay to the 9th Circuit in October 2018 over the objections of California Democratic Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris, but his nomination lapsed with the end of the previous Congress. Thereafter, Trump nominated Bumatay to a federal trial court in southern California. That nomination was pending before the Senate until Friday, when the president changed course and named Bumatay to the 9th Circuit.

Bumatay currently advises senior officials at the Department of Justice on organized crime, incarceration and the national opioid strategy, according to a dossier compiled by supporters of his nomination. In that capacity, he helps manage federal law enforcement agencies like the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and the Federal Bureau of Prisons. Before coming to Washington D.C. in 2017 he was a federal prosecutor in southern California.

“Patrick Bumatay will make a terrific judge on the 9th Circuit,” former Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement following his nomination. “He has dedicated his career to upholding the rule of law. Patrick’s many fine qualities, including his integrity, intellect, and collegiality, make him exceedingly worthy of this position. And his fidelity to the text of the Constitution is exactly what this country needs.”

News to the Left: It is the President’s prerogative to provide judicial nominees

As much as I did not like the nominations made by Obama, I tolerated them and prayed for them to gain wisdom. Likewise, when Obama made appointments to predominantly conservative courts, I did not protest (but just prayed and hoped for a turning of the political tide). However, now that the court that has done more to overturn President Trump’s actions is being “fixed” — now the lefties cry out.

‘It is exactly what Hillary Clinton’s campaign did’: Newt Gingrich turns the tables on The View

The Daily Caller details how Newt straightened out the story-line the women of The View were trying to spin.

HuntsmanGingrich sat in for Joy Behar, and Former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich turned the tables Tuesday on “The View,” laying out the differences between President Donald Trump and former President Bill Clinton with regard to impeachment.

Abby Huntsman pressed him to revisit the Clinton impeachment — over which he presided — for the sake of comparison.<

Huntsman began by pointing out that Gingrich had once occupied House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s seat. “You did go down the impeachment road,” she said. “If you were Nancy today and you had a president that did exactly what Trump did that was a Democrat, what would you do?”

“Well first of all, I’m sitting here trying to be Joy and now you want me to be Nancy. All I can tell you is this is getting to be a pretty heavy load to carry psychologically,” Gingrich laughed. “But there are two big differences.”

Gingrich then laid out the fact that an independent counsel had delivered a report indicating that Clinton was guilty of a felony. “I think had speaker Pelosi referred the Ukrainian phone call to a special counsel, they could do a lot of things,” he added.

The former speaker also mentioned sending someone to interview former Democratic House Judiciary Committee Chairman Peter Rodino, who spearheaded the Nixon impeachment inquiry, in order to ensure that the process was fair.

“Rodino had a set of rules that were very bipartisan and we brought them back and implemented exactly what Rodino did,” Gingrich explained. “Today, the White House doesn’t have a lawyer in these hearings. Secretary Pompeo’s staff went into a hearing, he has no lawyer there, has no idea what they’re saying.”

Thanks to Newt Gingrich for going to hostile venues like this to spread a message of logic

As much as Newt did a great job of explaining how the current hearings are unjust, you have to wonder about how much of the message got through to the audience. That is, one has to wonder whether the audience just responds to a “cheer” sign that got turned on once or twice too often.

Religious liberty cases reaching nation’s highest court

According to s 33 October 2019 article at OneNewsNow, a number of religious liberty cases have made it to the Supreme Court.

Supreme-CourtExpect to hear a lot more about the Supreme Court and religious freedom cases in coming months.

“There are two big religious freedom cases at the Supreme Court right now,” advises attorney Luke Goodrich of Becket, a religious liberty law firm. “One involves federal employment discrimination laws, and the question is whether employers can be punished if they discriminate against their employees based on sexual orientation or gender identity.”

That case is R.G. & G.R. Harris Funeral Homes Inc. v. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Oral arguments took place Oct. 8.

“The religious freedom issue there is there are thousands of religious organizations across the country that have traditional beliefs about sexuality and they often expect their employees to uphold those traditional religious beliefs,” says Goodrich. “If the Supreme Court goes the wrong way, all of those religious organizations would suddenly be exposed to new lawsuits and new potential liability.”

Another religious freedom case at the Supreme Court is Espinoza v. Montana Department of Revenue. At issue is government funding for religious schools.

Goodrich says that issue is over a state program that provides tax breaks to Montanans who donate to a scholarship program. Those scholarship funds can be used at private schools, both religious and secular.

Pray for wisdom and God’s will

Pray that, through whatever may need to happen, God’s wisdom will be granted to the justices and that we will see God’s will prevail.

Under the heading of liberal hypocrisy that went unreported:

Democrats compared Clinton’s impeachment to lynching

As reported in the Daily Caller, Democrats used the term “lynching” multiple times when defending Bill Clinton.

Democrats compared President Bill Clinton’s impeachment trial to a lynching as they debated whether to impeach him in 1998.

President Donald Trump similarly compared the impeachment inquiry he’s facing to a lynching, and Democrats quickly condemned his comment as racist.

“It makes you no better than those who burn crosses. It makes you no better than those who wear hoods and white robes,” Democratic Texas Rep. Al Green said Tuesday.

In December 1998, congressional representatives debated whether or not to impeach a president for the first time since the House voted to impeach President Andrew Johnson on Feb. 24, 1868, according to The New York Times. Multiple representatives compared Clinton’s impeachment to a lynching, and several others condemned it as a Republican attempt to remove Clinton from office.

Democratic Illinois Rep. Danny K. Davis condemned the impeachment trial as “a lynching,” and former Democratic Rhode Island Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy called it “a political lynching.”

Former Democratic Michigan Rep. John Conyers Jr. said that he was seeing a “Republican coup d’etat” — a phrase that Democratic Reps. Jerrold Nadler of New York and Maxine Waters of California both used as well.

Rather than reporting the peoples’ ideas, Pew pushes polling propaganda

OneNewsNow reports on Pew, saying that they seem less interested in reporting the thoughts of the people than in molding those thoughts.

Pollsters are at it again, pushing sketchy polls – not to reflect public opinion, but to shape it. This is called propaganda, a popular tool for dictators who want to control the information flow from an all-powerful government to their subjects, the people.

What once passed for journalism is now mostly propaganda, an effort by major media organizations to insert themselves into the political process, to push their agenda, even if it means throwing any pretense of journalistic principle and integrity to the wind. Look at the Project Veritas undercover videos of CNN for the latest example.

Polls of any type are designed to take a scientific snapshot of opinion at a particular point in time. A small sample is taken from a larger population – and if the sample is representative of the entire population, then the poll should be valid.

When cooking a sauce, the chef might taste a bit to determine if additional seasoning is needed. If the sauce is mixed properly, then the small sample represents the entire sauce. Polls work the same way. A skewed sample will produce bogus results. This may be accidental or intentional. Which is it? I’ll report, you decide, to coin Fox News’s latest catch phrase.

Pew Research Center is the latest pollster to weigh in on President Trump and impeachment. Let’s see whether their polling sample sauce was well stirred before they took a taste.

analyzing-poll-resultsPew sampled 3,487 “randomly selected” adults between October 1-13. That may or may not be representative of the general population, but given that only about half of eligible voters actually vote in presidential elections, a better sample would be registered, or even likely, voters.

Who was in that sample? Of the 3,487 total sampled, 1,453 were or leaned Republican, 1,942 were or leaned Democrat. In other words, 56 percent Democrat and only 42 percent Republican, a 14-point difference favoring Democrats.

Odd thing is that Pew doesn’t think that we notice

Pew must think of the general public the same way that a con artist thinks of the mark.

During my years as an undergrad, I took a course on marketing writing and, as I researched another topic, ran across a study of the attitudes that con artists hold toward those who they attempt to fool and swindle. According to that study, con artists almost across the board think of their “marks” as being stupid and beneath contempt. In fact, these con artists often might assign nick names to the “marks” that might thinly veil the contempt the con artist holds.  Based on this, one wonders what the original versions of the graphs at Pew might be labelled.

MadJoeWould we see a resurrection of Hillary’s “deplorable” or Biden’s “dregs of society?”

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lets her hypocrisy shine as bright as the sun

Breitbart reports in a 21 October 2019 article on the hypocrisy of AOC as she calls out income inequality just after endorsing the multi-millionaire Bernie Sanders.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Sunday decried income inequality and the “top one percent” just one day after endorsing a millionaire.
Ocasio-Cortez tweeted a Business Insider report, which found that an individual needs to make “at least $500,000 a year” in order to make the “top one percent” in the United States.

“A lot of people think that folks like your typical lawyer or doctor are in ‘the 1%.’ That may be bc it’s hard to conceive how bad runaway inequality has gotten,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote.

“Even this number – $500k – reflects top income, & even THAT doesn’t hold a candle to recognizing concentrated wealth,” she added:

{tweet https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1185992674517626880 ]

The socialist lawmaker’s public complaint regarding the reality of “income inequality” comes just one day after she endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) – a millionaire – for president.

According to Forbes, Sanders has a $2.5 million fortune, which he acquired via “estate, investments, government pensions—and earnings from three books,” many of which lament the very system that made his wealth possible. While his senator’s salary is $174,000 per year, Forbes notes that the socialist lawmaker has made a “six-figure annual salary since he joined Congress in 1991”:

With 28 years in office and a current salary of $174,000, Sanders is entitled to around $73,000 a year from the federal government for the rest of his life. If he were to sell that guaranteed income stream for a lump-sum pile of cash, Forbes figures he could get around $650,000 for it.

In 2016, Sanders purchased a $575,000 lake house – dubbed a “summer home” – in the Champlain Islands, making the socialist the proud owner of not one, not two, but three homes.

Hopefully, if the only news of AOC is bad news, she will go away

Since this woman see-saws from demanding that climate change will destroy us in 12 years to insisting that this demand was a joke, maybe the electorate will see through her. However, since she knows how to apply make-up and has a large Twitter following, this may take some work.

Cases where left-wingers were so unhinged that they did crazy things

WaPo calls al Baghdadi an “austere religious scholar”

As reported in a 28 October 2019 article in USA Today, Twitter erupted in mocking tweets in response to the Washington Post obituaary that announced “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, austere religious scholar at helm of Islamic State, dies at 48.”

The Washington Post is facing backlash after a headline characterized the Islamic State leader who was killed in a U.S. raid over the weekend as an “austere religious scholar.” The headline was quickly changed, but critics say it sugar coated the terror inflicted by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

President Donald Trump announced Sunday morning that al-Baghdadi was killed when he detonated a vest he was wearing after being cornered by U.S. forces on Saturday evening.

The Post article says that when al-Baghdadi first rose as a leader of ISIS, he was a relatively unheard of “austere religious scholar with wire-frame glasses and no known aptitude for fighting and killing.”

Its original headline read, “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Islamic State’s ‘terrorist-in-chief,’ dies at 48.” But it was later changed to “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, austere religious scholar at helm of Islamic State, dies at 48.”

As of Monday morning, the headline was “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, extremist leader of Islamic State, dies at 48.”

As noted later in the article, al-Baghdadi encouraged followers to commit acts of violence and terror. He was also perhaps the most wanted terrorist leader in the world and the highest ranking since the death of Osama bin Laden in 2011.

The weirdest thing about all this seems to be the way WaPo writers persisted

In addition to the obituary issues, it seems that Max Boot went to the mat for al-Baghdadi, saying that the rapist and murderer who committed suicide while killing three children was “not a coward.”

‘Angry’ Katie Hill Blames Right-Wing Media for ‘Electronic Assault’ Leading to Her Resignation

Breitbart reports in a 28 October 2019 article how Katie Hill doesn’t blame either her affair with a female staffer or another affair with a male staffer for her having to resign, but blames “right-wing” conspirators.

Rep. Katie Hill (D-CA) released a statement on Monday formally announcing her resignation following allegations of inappropriate sexual relationships with congressional staffers, blaming “right-wing media” and “hateful political operatives” for “enabling and perpetuating my husband’s abuse by providing him a platform.”

Hill confirmed the reports of her resignation in a video announcement released Monday. Her resignation comes weeks after mounting allegations of inappropriate sexual relationships with congressional staffers, including a “throuple” relationship with a female staffer and a separate affair with a male staffer.

While Hill issued a relatively ambiguous statement confirming a relationship with a staffer the day after denying an affair with a male member of her congressional staff, she directly blamed her departure on a “coordinated campaign carried out by the right-wing media and Republican opponents,” accusing both of “enabling and perpetuating my husband’s abuse by providing him a platform” and calling it “disgusting and unforgivable.”

“They will be held accountable, but I will not allow myself to be a distraction from the constitutional crisis we’re faced with and the critical work of my colleagues, and so I have to take my personal fight outside the halls of Congress,” she said, stressing the importance of legislative policies — ensuring “quality health care, housing we can afford, and a government that works for the people” — that Democrats have largely ignored due to their endless pursual of impeachment.

“I cannot let this horrible smear campaign get in the way of that work,” she continued, telling her supporters that they “showed the nation that there is hope even in the darkest of moments.”

Hill added that she will “take on a new fight” to “ensure that no one else has to live through what I just experienced.”

“Some people call this electronic assault, digital exploitation. Others call it revenge porn. As the victim of it, I call it one of the worst things that we can do to our sisters and our daughters,” she said, adding that she will “not allow my experience to scare off other young women or girls from running for office.”

“For the sake of all of us, we cannot let that happen,” she added.

“I’m hurt. I’m angry. The path that I saw so clearly for myself is no longer there,” Hill continued. “I’ve had moments where I’ve wondered what the last three years of my life were for and if it was worth it.”

House Democrats to Vote on Impeachment Procedures Thursday

Within the words of a 28 October 2019 Breitbart article, it seems that San Fran Nan has capitulated to the demands of Republicans within the Senate (or there will be no trial after the “impeachment”).

house-to-vote-on-impeachment-inquiry-processHouse Democrats will vote on Thursday to establish the procedures for their ongoing impeachment investigation against President Donald Trump, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday afternoon.
Rep. Jim McGovern (D-MA), chairman of House Rules Committee, said he will introduce the resolution’s text for approval on Tuesday and the panel will move to mark it up by Wednesday.

“As committees continue to gather evidence and prepare to present their findings, I will be introducing a resolution to ensure transparency and provide a clear path forward,” McGovern said in a statement. “This is the right thing to do for the institution and the American people.”

The development comes as House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) faces pressure from House and Senate Republicans to bring the impeachment probe from out of the shadows.

In recent weeks, the House intel panel has interviewed several current and former Trump administration officials inside Capitol Hill’s SCIF room, also known as a sensitive compartmented information facility. Arguing against the secret bunker’s use, Republicans say no discussions involving classified information have occurred inside and assert Democrats are using it to selectively leaking excerpts of witnesses’ testimony to the media. Nearly 30 House Republicans attempted to storm the chamber on Wednesday as Laura Cooper, a senior Department of Defense official working on Ukraine, was scheduled to testify.

“Behind those doors they intend to overturn the results of an American presidential election. We want to know what is going on,” Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who led the group of frustrated Republicans, said at a press conference prior to attempting to enter the secured room.

Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) have introduced a resolution to condemn Pelosi and Schiff’s handling of the impeachment inquiry, which has already garnered 50 Republican cosponsors. Sens. Mitt Romney (R-UT), Susan Collins (R-ME), and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) do not support the measure.

Will Pelosi actually hold a vote or will she try to fool the Senate?

Can we expect a Kabuki theater between the lying Democrats that want to deny due process and the Never-Trumper Republicans that want to accomplish their globalist dreams? Or can we expect Pelosi to drop the pretense of a vote when she just decides to keep holding her closed-door hearings?

Lenient Democrats have effects


Teens’ Bond Set To Measly $1 After Burglarizing Home In Spring

Spring Happenings reports through a 15 October 2019 article that the lenient sentencing and policies of the newly-elected Democrat judges have continued to have effects.

sevengatearrestsc4

Officials with the Harris County Precinct 4 Constables say seven suspects who allegedly broke into a home and caused $2,800 worth of damage only received a $1 bond.

On October 12, 2019, deputies responded to the 5500 block of Ashgate Drive in reference to a burglary in progress.

When deputies arrived they found the front door forced open. Two suspects later identified as Hiley Robertson and John Jackson were attempting to flee the scene but were captured and arrested.

While clearing the inside of the home, deputies located five other suspects who were identified as Dominic Biggs, Logan James, Terrell Lacy, Marselena James, and Matthew Francis.

Deputies say $2,800.00 worth of damage was done inside of the residence.

“All seven suspects were arrested and booked into the Harris County Jail, charged with Burglary of a Habitation. Dominic Biggs, Logan James, Terrell Lacy, Marselena James, and John Jackson received a $1.00 bond out of the 351st District Court. Hiley Robertson and Matthew Francis received a $1,000.00 bond each out of the 351st District court.” – Constable Mark Herman

This starts teens on a road to crime

The Democrat judge who gave these criminals a $1 bail may think that he or she has given them a break; however, unless there is some type of resistance to their criminality (maybe a concerned parent), then this judge has just greased the tracks to continued criminality.

Crime Stoppers addresses issue of low bond for repeat offenders

Houston’s CBS affiliate KHOU reported on 22 October 2019 that the Houston Crime Stoppers has taken a stand against the low bond for repeat offenders.

CrimeStoppers.png

Crime Stoppers of Houston held a press conference to educate the public on the issue of felony offenders being released on bond who continue to commit offenses while out on bond.

Crime Stoppers says public safety is at a higher risk when career habitual offenders are continuously released and commit new offenses.

Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo and local business owners spoke at the press conference.

Odd that Kim Ogg and Art Acevedo were allowed to make proposals in a situation they created

Considering that this problem has popped up since the 2018 election that swept Democrats into Harris County public office (especially in judgeships), these two have a lot of chutzpah to make their part in this presentation.

Crime Stoppers, HPD address safety issue on push for bail reform in Houston area

Houston’s NBC affiliate KPRC reported on 22 October 2019 on the multiple cases of Him Ogg letting violent criminals out on bail. Thus, this article provided a slightly different slant on the above press conference.

Law enforcement officials say there is an ongoing public safety issue in Harris County due to a broken bond system that allows for violent offenders to be easily released back on the street.

Crime Stoppers of Houston victim advocate Andy KahnCrime Stoppers of Houston victim advocate Andy Kahn said there is a staggeringly high number of violent offenders on the street.

“There are roughly around 3,000 defendants currently out on bond for aggravated offenses included capital murder, murder aggravated robbery and aggravated assault,” Kahn said.

He said many of the violent offenders have committed more crimes while out on bond. Kahn said the recent murder of taco truck owner Enrique Ayala was at the hands of 21-year-old Anthony Conway who was out on bond for assault.

What can you expect when the primary driver for Kim Ogg’s election was billionaire George Soros?

SorosOggYes, Kim Ogg has allowed numerous felons onto the streets of Houston. That cannot be denied. In fact, murderers have been released under her watch. Under her watch, a Sikh deputy sheriff was killed by an abusive felon who had been reported as dangerous by the felon’s wife.

Why is this trend ongoing under Ms. Ogg? Could it be due to the baggage that she gained when she accepted campaign funding from George Soros? Did he demand certain policies in return for the monies invested in her 2016 campaign?

He was out on bond for another crime, now he’s wanted for a pregnant woman’s murder

Houston’s CBS affiliate KHOU reported on 6 August 2019 that a felon was let out on bond and is now suspected of murder.

felon_murderedwomanPolice are searching for a suspected killer after a pregnant 18-year-old was found shot to death in a northwest Houston motel room early Monday.

Justin Herron, 31, was initially identified as a person of interest in the case, but on Tuesday police announced he was charged with capital murder.

The victim was identified by police as Patra Perkins, 18.

Herron, who has a lengthy criminal history and was out on bond after a previous arrest, is said to be the one who rented the room where Perkins was found dead.

It was 2:30 a.m. Monday when a man flagged down an officer patrolling the Tinseltown across the street from a motel located in the . The man said there was a woman who had been shot multiple times at the motel.

The officer, along with hotel management, went to the room and found the victim’s body with at least four gunshot wounds.

Capital murder suspect walks free after not paying for ankle monitor

Houston’s ABC affiliate KTRK reported on 3 October 2019 how a murder suspect was released by Kim Ogg with an ankle monitor and then he got his ankle monitor repossessed by not paying for it.

A man is back behind bars after his GPS ankle monitor was repossessed by the company who owned it for non-payment.

gpsarrestfeatureIn June, Clint Walker was released on a $100,000 surety bond.

Walker is accused of shooting and killing 59-year-old Enrique Garcia during an attempted robbery at a north Harris County game room in November of 2016.

The Harris County District Attorney’s Office said Guarding Public Safety, the company who owned the monitor, did not alert the court that they took the monitor back on September 19th until afterward.

“The vendor that was monitoring Mr. Walker was upset with him being $305 behind in his fees,” David Mitcham, assistant district attorney, said.

When defendants are required to wear ankle monitors, they are able to choose between four companies to facilitate it.

Walker used Guarding Public Safety to provide his GPS monitor. He was unmonitored for about two weeks before he was arrested again on Oct. 2.

Dr. Teresa May, Department Director for the Harris County Community Supervision and Corrections Department, said their contract with the vendors, including Guarding Public Safety, requires them to get authorization from her office before removing a monitor. She said they did not.

Surely Ms Ogg would keep the murderers in jail, wouldn’t she?

Convict accused of killing Sikh Texas deputy will likely face death penalty, judge says

In a case of journalistic too-little/too-late, NBC News reported in a 30 September 2019 article on the loose supervision of parolees.

robert-solisRobert Solis, 47, was arrested on suspicion of capital murder in connection with the shooting of Harris County Deputy Sandeep Dhaliwal during an afternoon traffic stop on Friday. Evidence does not suggest the “ambush-style” attack was a hate crime, police said.

Solis, who was convicted of kidnapping in 2002 and was wanted for violating parole at the time of the shooting, will be held without bond, Harris County Judge Chris Morton said during a court hearing Monday morning.

Man with multiple parole violations has his wife warn many agencies, then he kills an ethnic-minority policeman. Then Democrats get tough.

If you researched the case of Robert Solis, you know that he was thankfully denied bail, had a long history of law breaking (including having kidnapped his son), and there were a number of known parole violations. After all of that, the Democrats finally got tough on crime.

For second time in three weeks, arresting a wanted parole ends tragically

In a 16 October 2019 article by Fox affiliate KRIV, we are told of the arrest of a gang member with four parole violations.

“He was a ticking time bomb and now someone has Piaf the price for it,” said Andy Kahan with Crime Stoppers.

CanizalezGeovany Canizalez, 30, a documented gang member, was granted parole in December of 2028.

Documents indicate he repeatedly violated his parole and on three occasions issued warrants for his arrest only to turn around and withdraw them.

“He had not one, not two, not three, this is his fourth parole warrant is less than a year,” Kahan said.

Last July, parole officials finally issued a blue warrant believing Canizalez had absconded.

This past Saturday, he led Precinct 4 deputies on a high-speed chase.

“We try to pull him over for a traffic violation. The guy immediately starts running,” said Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman. “There is a pursuit speeds get pretty high to the point where a supervisor terminated the pursuit.”

Moments later Herman says Canizalez hit and critically injured a bicyclist.

“He knew that the probability of him going to the penitentiary was pretty high,” said Herman.

Stories you probably did not hear about impeachment


NPR Regrets Interviewing Republican Who Called Out Schiff and Democrats on ‘Political Impeachment’

Breitbart reports on the National Public Radio interview that varied from their selected topic.

IdiotSchiffNational Public Radio (NPR) regrets a live radio interview with a Republican lawmaker who called out Democrats and Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, which is overseeing investigations against President Donald Trump, for what he called a “political impeachment.”

NPR sent out its public editor, Elizabeth Jensen, to defend the taxpayer-funded left-wing media outlet for it “journalistically strong” coverage of the impeachment effort after its supporters criticized an interview with Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN):

Unlike some of the critics, I think that overall the coverage has the handling of misinformation in an interview on Wednesday’s All Things Considered with Rep. Jim Banks, an Indiana Republican, raised journalistic concerns that I don’t think are explained away as purely partisan posturing (although there has also been plenty of partisan pushback from both sides about the interview). And once again, the journalistic challenge resulted from a format choice: the decision to interview a politician on live radio.

Live interviews have increased greatly on NPR’s newsmagazines in recent years. As readers of this column well know, listeners (and I) have raised many concerns about their execution.

When they work, live interviews are a valuable way to hear the point of view of a newsmaker in their own words. An interview runs into problems, however, when the guest says something that is provably inaccurate or seriously misleading. At that point the host is obligated to push back to correct it, which to some listeners sounds partisan (and it can be unpleasant and unproductive when an interview turns argumentative).

If only NPR would come clean, it would be much more simple

All that they would have to do would be to change their banner. Once it read “NPR provides all news that supports the current narrative of liberals and Democrats.” Of course, for anyone who has listened to 10 minutes of PAll Things Considered, Morning Edition, or Here and Now would know that a liberal slant predominates just about everything that comes across their airwaves.

Democrats make arguments against impeachment

If you listen to the Democrats in the following video, you will hear them make strong arguments against impeachment.

Speaker Testimony
Biden: It is simply antithetical to our constitutional democracy to use impeachment to overturn an election on partisan grounds.
Pelosi: I think it has dramatic impact on the confidence the American people have in government.
Nadler: The effect of impeachment is to overturn the popular will of the voters as expressed in a national election.
Schumer: Their hatred of the President exceeds their caring about this country and its people.
Biden: It would trample on the choice made by the people through the electoral process and do great harm.
Nadler: The people elected the President. They still support him. We have no right to overturn the considered judgement of the American people.
Sanders: But what the American people are saying loudly and clearly is — let’s get on with the business of the American people.
Nadler: Impeachment of a president is an undoing of a national election …
Biden: … it violates the independence of the presidency and it usurps the people’s voice.
Nadler: They are ripping asunder our votes. They are telling us our votes don’t count and that the election must be set aside.
Waters: Send a message through the ballot box. That’s what we do in this democracy.
Green: I’m concerned that, if we don’t impeach this President, he will get re-elected.

I will agree with all of these Democrats on these statements

However, unlike the times that we endured while Bill Clinton philandered and lied about the philandering, we do not have a media that wants to cover for the President.

So, it is completely up to the reasonable people of America to look at how things are being twisted and to vote accordingly.

Going into the next election, we need to remember that:

  1. Pelosi has not put out a level field for impeachment like the Republicans of the Clinton era did. She has not yet put the impeachment inquiry up to a vote, which would:
    • Allow both sides to issue subpoenas.
    • Allow the defenders of Trump to mount a defense.
    • Take the anonymous accusers out of the shadows (since, in the American judicial system, we have the right to face our accusers).
  2. Adam Schiff lied into the Congressional record with his opening statements to the House Intelligence Committee (later calling it a “parody”).
  3. In conflict with most Americans’ sense of fairness, Democrats have not allowed Republicans to ask questions or participate in the impeachment hearings so far.

Women for Trump have organized a march

With a hat-tip to the Chris Salcedo Show, I have found that Women for America First has organized at least one march for 17 October 2019.

I would encourage all who can to attend this march

The more support we can provide, the less cocky the Democrats will be. Therefore, send money, attend marches, and attend rallies.

The One America News Network points out how US diplomats gave Ukrainian officials a do-not-prosecute list of Americans.

Trump ImpeachmentTop U.S. diplomats will testify this week on Capitol Hill, including former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch and Deputy Secretary of State George Kent. Yovanovitch was removed from her post after she allegedly gave Ukrainian prosecutor Yuri Lutsenko a “do not prosecute” list of American allies she felt were above the law.

Also scheduled to testify is U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland, who made headlines when private text messages between him and top Ukrainian officials were released. In the messages he confirmed there was never a request for a “quid pro quo of any kind” from the president. The texts follow the July phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, where Trump congratulated Zelensky on his landslide victory.

“I actually spoke with President Trump just a few minutes before he placed the call and not only did the president call to congratulate president Zelensky, but also to begin the collaboration of charting the pathway forward with the U.S. support of Ukraine and a White House visit that’s upcoming for President Zelensky,” stated Sondland.

The U.S. Ambassador to the European Union and U.S. Special Envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker made frequent visits to Ukraine in the hopes of improving U.S. relations. Volker has been interviewed in regards to the matter and although Democrats attempted to pry him for information they could use in their impeachment inquiry, he maintained the president’s innocence.

Add to this, Volker has come out attacking Democrats for their bias in using his report

Now it seems that the Democrats want to ignore Ambassador Volker because he has discredited their little lie about Trump and Ukraine.

Biden berates reporter for question on Ukraine ‘conflicts of interest’

The Daily Mail reports that Biden berated a reporter for asking him questions about Ukraine.

Joe Biden has lashed out at a reporter in response to a question about his family’s potential conflicts of interest in the Ukraine, insisting that press should focus on allegations against President Donald Trump.

BidenSnapsAt a Service Employees International Union forum in Los Angeles on Friday, Biden was asked about his work overseeing foreign policy for Ukraine as vice president while his son Hunter served on the board of a major Ukrainian company.

‘It’s not a conflict of interest. There’s been no indication of any conflict of interest, in Ukraine or anywhere else. Period,’ Biden snapped.

Asked how his son’s cushy $50,000-a-month gig didn’t at least create the appearance of a conflict of interest, Biden rejoined: ‘I’m not going to respond to that. Focus on this man. What he’s doing that no president has ever done. No president.’

Biden has previously demanded that reporters ‘ask the right questions’ and accused Trump of trying to ‘hijack’ the campaign with unfounded assertions that Biden and his son had corrupt dealings in Ukrainian business and politics.

In late September in Iowa, the former VP scolded a Fox News reporter who asked about his family’s ties to Ukraine. ‘You should be asking him the question: why is he on the phone with a foreign leader, trying to intimidate a foreign leader?’ he said.

‘This appears to be an overwhelming abuse of power. To get on the phone with a foreign leader who is looking for help from the United States and ask about me and imply things … this is outrageous. You have never seen anything like this from any president.’

Considering the number of days the press spent on covering Trump’s blow-up …

When you think back a few days to Trump;’s verbal bout with the press, it seemed that the talking heads would not let it go.

On the other hand, now that Joe Biden is the one on the catbird seat, the press does not want to mention the dust up.

Why did you mostly hear about impeachment?

The Democrats want to distract us from 2019 having the most illegal crossings in 12 years

The Washington Examiner reports that illegal crossings rose in 2019 while San Fran Nan blocked all debate on the border wall.

Border Patrol agents working along the United States-Mexico border took into custody approximately 851,000 people in the U.S. government’s fiscal 2019, marking the highest number of arrests since 2007, according to federal data exclusively obtained by the Washington Examiner.

borderwallBut the 40,000 people taken into custody in September is less than one-third of the 132,000 arrests made in May at the height of a surge of illegal immigrants.

Roughly 40,000 people were apprehended after crossing into Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California during the month of September. That number was added to the previous 11 months to bring fiscal 2019, which ran Oct. 1, 2018, through Sept. 30, to slightly more than 851,000 arrests. Those arrested for illegally crossing into the U.S. from Mexico may have claimed asylum once in custody, but that figure is not released by the government each month.

The 851,000 arrested at the southern border does not include the number of people who approached ports of entry, or border crossings, to claim asylum or pass through but were turned away. U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the Department of Homeland Security agency that oversees these figures, is expected to release this and related data in a few weeks.

As of Aug. 31, another 263,000 people were encountered at ports by the Office of Field Operations, a component of CBP. Border Patrol agents are stationed on the land between ports of entry while field operations officers stay at ports. These people are not arrested but are simply denied entry.

These numbers do not include additional arrests and denied port crossers at the U.S.-Canada border and along the Pacific and Atlantic coasts, nor does it include the September figure for those encountered at the ports.

Due to the fact that the Democrats have a complicit press and we are too easily distracted, this bait-and-switch might work

Unless the grassroots of the conservative movement gets out and points out how the press and Democrats are covering this and other failings, they will get away with it. Unless we continually post and talk about the murders at the hands of illegal aliens, the Democrats will win here.

Should we fail to point out that the Democrats’ sanctuary cities have become cesspools of crime, drug use, and disease, the Democrats will win here.

Should we not point out that Democrats have failed to deliver on the infrastructure, Medicare, or anything else.

Democrats in the Press and Congress twist the rules

Fox’s Ed Henry blasted for twisting question to exonerate Biden

As recounted by the One America News Network, Fox’s Ed Henry has been blasted for twisting a question to blame President Trump and exonerate former Vice President Biden (who confessed to doing what our president is accused of doing).

EdHenryConservative commentator Mark Levin blasted Fox News host Ed Henry for pushing a “dishonest” narrative regarding the president’s Ukraine call. Levin appeared as a guest during a Sunday interview on the network, where he talked about the president’s discussion with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenski.

Early in the interview, they discussed Joe Biden and his son’s business dealings in Ukraine. Soon enough, however, things got heated when Henry pressed Levin on whether or not he was “okay” with President Trump asking for “dirt” on Biden. Levin hit back by calling the question misleading and dishonest. He then pointed out that nowhere in the transcript of the call did the president ask for any kind of information on Biden or anyone for that matter.

Henry was appearing to reference House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff’s infamous dramatization of President Trump’s phone call with Zelenski. The shutdown quickly attracted the attention of the president, who retweeted over 20 reactions to the exchange.

Democrats subpoena Giuliani for documents related to impeachment inquiry

Even though a vote has not been held (and, therefore, this is not a legal impeachment inquiry that would include real subpoenas), in contradiction to the concept of executive privilege, and despite lawyer-client confidentiality (already thoroughly undermined by the Mueller’s/Democrats’ raid on President Trump’s lawyer, Cohen), the Daily Caller points out how Democrats have insisted on receiving documents from President Trump’s lawyer.

Democratic lawmakers subpoenaed former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani Monday for documents related to the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

fullofschiff-liarcummings-natanengelHouse Democrats’ inquiry “includes an investigation of credible allegations that [Giuliani] acted as an agent of the President in a scheme to advance his personal political interests by abusing the power of the Office of the President,” Reps. Elijah Cummings, Adam Schiff, and Eliot Engel wrote in a letter to Giuliani Monday.

They asked Giuliani, Trump’s personal lawyer, to produce documents related to their request by Oct. 15. The move comes one day after Giuliani told ABC Sunday that he would not cooperate with Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.

Cummings, Schiff, and Engel are investigating whether Trump attempted push Ukraine into probing former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, who sat on the board of a Ukrainian energy company while his dad was in the White House.

Giuliani alleges that Biden worked to remove a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating the company Hunter was affiliated with.

This should not surprise anyone, because Democrats have sunken lower during the last three years

We should expect that Democrats would have no respect for the lawyer-client relationship. They had no respect for it when Mueller combed through the files and computers of the President’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen.

For all of the things Democrats “passed” with great fanfare (with no Republican or presidential support — so it went nowhere), none of it was in support of the regular American who works to keep this nation together.

The problem with this inaction becomes magnified when you also consider the ways that attacks made through their maniacal search for impeachable offenses. For example, although General Flynn had once been determined to have told the truth, he was later convicted on the process crime of lying to the FBI.

Also consider the way CNN recorded and the FBI staged the early-morning raid on the home of Roger Stone, who was so little of a flight risk and threat that he was able to bond out during the morning of the same day. For nothing but the hope of finding some impeachable offense, this man was routed from his home at gunpoint at the command of a party that wants to disarm us all.

Coincidentally, now that it has come out that Mueller may have lied to Congress and the testimony against him seems every bit as convincing as the evidence held against Flynn, do you think that Mueller see years in prison?

Schiff ‘helped write’ whistleblower complaint, after House panel admits advance knowledge

According to The Greg Jarrett and Lifezette, Adam Schiff had prior knowledge of the whistleblower complaint (and helped write it).

From The Greg Jarrett, we find:

A spokesperson for Congressman Adam Schiff confirmed Wednesday that the whistleblower alleging misconduct by President Trump had contacted the legislator before officially filing his complaint.

Schiff&RedStain“A spokesman for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., acknowledged Wednesday that the whistleblower alleging misconduct in the White House had reached out to Schiff’s panel before filing a complaint — prompting President Trump, in an extraordinary afternoon press conference at the White House, to directly accuse Schiff of helping write the document,” reports Fox News.

“It shows that Schiff is a fraud. … I think it’s a scandal that he knew before,” said the President during a press conference at the White House. “I’d go a step further. I’d say he probably helped write it. … That’s a big story. He knew long before, and he helped write it too. It’s a scam.”

“Like other whistleblowers have done before and since under Republican and Democratic-controlled Committees, the whistleblower contacted the Committee for guidance on how to report possible wrongdoing within the jurisdiction of the Intelligence Community,” Patrick Boland, a spokesman for Schiff and the House Intelligence Committee, told Fox News. “This is a regular occurrence, given the Committee’s unique oversight role and responsibilities. Consistent with the Committee’s longstanding procedures, Committee staff appropriately advised the whistleblower to contact an Inspector General and to seek legal counsel.”

How many layers of lies can Schiff press into this investigation

Consider that Schiff lied:

  1. By creating his imagined dialogue between Trump and Zelensky (which he, naturally, called “parody” once he got called on it)
  2. By remaining in the investigation even though he was involved in reviewing (if not creating) the whistleblower story
  3. By likely setting up all of the whistleblower scenarios.

Trump supporters greet Pelosi in South Carolina: ‘Impeach Pelosi’

Breitbart reports in a 5 October article how San Fran Nan was greeted with a banner saying “Impeach Pelosi” when she went to speak at an event.

Donald Trump supporters in South Carolina sent a clear message to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Friday evening, flocking to her event’s venue and holding up signs to express their support of the president.

Pelosi-in-South-CarolinaPelosi was featured as the keynote speaker at a South Carolina Democratic Party fundraising event at the Hyatt Regency in Greenville, South Carolina, on Friday. Trump supporters gathered outside of the event’s venue to express their support for the president. Videos show supporters shouting “Trump” and holding American flags, Trump-Pence 2020 banners, and homemade signs reading, “Impeach Pelosi”

Make a real difference. Follow in the steps of these Resistance Resistance.

If Hillary and Pelosi with their compatriots in Antifa can constitute the resistance, then we can make a new group. We can resist the resistance. We can be the Resistance Resistance.

At every Maxine Waters fundraiser, Pelosi speech, and even their trips to their limos — we can stand up. While nobody who claims salvation can advocate the things that Mad Max called for her followers to do, we can surely defend the defenseless.

The ‘Never Trump’ Coalition that decided Eh, Nevermind, He’s Fine

According to even the biased writers at the New York Times, we find independents, conservatives, and Republicans have come to support the President of the United States.

BrentBozellThey signed open letters, dedicated a special magazine issue to criticism of him and swore he would tear at the fabric of this nation. Now they have become the president’s strongest defenders.

In 2016, Erick Erickson could not have been clearer. Donald Trump was “a racist” and “a fascist.” It was no wonder, Mr. Erickson wrote, that “so many people with swastikas in their Twitter profile pics” supported him. “I will not vote for Donald Trump. Ever,” he insisted, adding his voice to the chorus of Never Trump Republicans.

This past week, Mr. Erickson, a well-known conservative blogger, titled one of his pieces “I Support the President.” In three years, he had come completely around, a transformation that is a testament to President Trump’s remarkable consolidation of support inside the Republican Party. The effort to impeach the president, Mr. Erickson wrote, was a desperate move by people “who have never come to terms with him.”

“Never Trump” no more, conservatives have largely resigned themselves to a more accommodating state of mind: “Never mind Trump.” And their change in attitude helps to mute the much smaller group of conservative voices who remain highly critical of the president and have questioned his conduct.

Glenn Beck, the radio host who once called Mr. Trump “an immoral man who is absent decency or dignity,” now says that his defeat in 2020 would mark “the end of the country as we know it.” Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, who so bitterly feuded with the president during the 2016 primaries that Mr. Trump gave out Mr. Graham’s cellphone number on national television, declared last week that impeachment was nothing but “a political setup.”

It can be difficult to remember that indignation and contempt for Mr. Trump once simmered in every corner of the conservative world. In August 2016, dozens of the most senior Republican national security officials signed a letter warning he would “put at risk our country’s national security and well-being.”

Female leaders of the anti-abortion movement joined together before the Iowa caucuses in 2016 and issued a joint statement declaring themselves “disgusted” at his behavior, saying he had “impugned the dignity of women.” National Review published an “Against Trump” issue that featured essays from 22 prominent conservatives who all made a case for why he should not be the Republican nominee.

At least half of those writers are now on the record making supportive comments about the president. Some, including Mr. Erickson and Mr. Beck, now fiercely defend Mr. Trump, joining many former foes who are speaking out loudly against the impeachment inquiry. Others who contributed to the issue, like Ed Meese, the attorney general under Ronald Reagan, have helped Mr. Trump plan his transition and build his administration.

A number of current supporters of Trump came from the ranks of other groups

As for myself, I supported Senator Cruz until candidate Trump eclipsed the Senator. I do admit that, like all Republicans (and most independents and conservatives), I think for myself. Therefore, when the administration steps away from my values, I speak up (maybe not in this blog, depending on how busy I am, but often here).

So, when Trump initially announced pulling out and abandoning the Kurds, I called. When the administration voiced support for the LGBT community, I pointed out how their agenda stands antithetical to God’s best in our lives. Still, in this age of grace and in this current political climate, God may be allowing us time to seek Him (however, our enemies here are putting up every obstacle to their possible loss of power).

Still, whether it is because of his support of religious rights or his appointment of conservative justices or his removal of inane bureaucratic regulations or his implementation of capitalism in place of Obama’s dream, I support my President.

Members of the Democrat coalition take positions against big parts of the party


AOC comes out against affirmative action

Ocasio-Cortez: Electoral College is ‘Affirmative Action’ for Rural Americans

Breitbart uses a 24 August 2019 article to point out how clueless AOC can be toward Democrats outside of the big city.

AOC_frogFace

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) continued her verbal assault on the Electoral College, this time smearing the Constitutional system that guarantees big states don’t have undue influence in electing the president as an “electoral affirmative action” scheme for rural Americans.

On Friday, Ocasio-Cortez posted the following 5-point missive on Twitter:




Last week, the socialist lawmaker claimed the Electoral College “is, in fact, a scam” and has a “racial injustice breakdown.”

She wrote: “The Electoral College has a racial injustice breakdown. Due to severe racial disparities in certain states, the Electoral College effectively weighs white voters over voters of color, as opposed to a “one person, one vote” system where all our votes are counted equally.”

AOC may be demonstrating the problem of unintended consequences

For AOC to claim that “electoral affirmative action” would be unfairly advantageous for rural Americans over urban Americans, she surely must recognize the overall inequity of the affirmative action program. That is, unless this woman has not considered the consequences of her actions.

Then again, just as Obama seemed not to associate his own divisive words with the riots in Ferguson and Baltimore, maybe Alexandria does not see how she is arguing against a program that many in her Democrat circles deem as central to their ideology.

Still, it would seem that the Democrats would stuff a sock in the mouthpiece that would have democrats tearing down affirmative action.


Democrats in media ignore stories that should be prominent for those affected by Mexico

Democrats ignore the violence in Mexico: 11th Mexican Journalist Murdered In 2019

As reported exclusively in a 25 August 2019 Breitbart article, Nevith Condez Jaramillo has been murdered (likely for his reporting of the corrupt conditions in Central Mexico).

Murdered-Mexican-Journalist

Press freedom organizations in Mexico denounced the murder of yet another journalist who died from at least four stab wounds. The journalist had previously been the target of threats for his reporting on corrupt activities in Central Mexico.

Mexico’s National Human Rights Commission (CNDH) confirmed the murder of Nevith Condez Jaramillo. The journalist was stabbed to death. Authorities recovered the victim’s body on Saturday morning in the town of Tejupilco in the state of Mexico. The murder marks the 11th of its kind in 2019 and the 13th of its kind since Mexico’s current President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador took office in December 2018. Mexico’s CNDH is reporting that Condez’s murder is the 12th of 2019.

According to El Sol De Mexico, Condez had been the target of numerous threats from local law enforcement and had reached out to press freedom groups for help. The journalist had also asked to be placed in a special program to protect journalists that is run by Mexico’s federal government. However, the measure was never completed. The press freedom group Periodistas Desplazados reported that Condez had been the target of numerous threats before his murder.

(Read about the other 10 journalists murdered for their work at Breitbart)

Both pitfalls and benefits exist in addressing this murder, but they can make them all positive

Considering that an emphasis on these stories would undercut their claims of oppression by President Trump and would bolster the argument of those supporting the Second Amendment.

However, in the interest of their readers who might travel to Mexico or trade with Mexican companies, it would build a trust that now seems to be lacking.

With all of this in mind, why would the Democrat candidates and Democrat press continue to ignore the murder of a corruption-exposing Mexican journalist?

Democrat governments like that in Portland have started using Antifa to punish their conservative “enemies” (much as Hitler’s brown shirts went after communists)

Antifa Accused of Attacking Small Conservative Group After Portland Police Reportedly Abandon Them

According to an 18 August 2019 article in the Western Journal, a man holding an American flag who was safe behind the police officers before they left soon found punks directly targeting him.

antifa

In the midst of a heated Portland, Oregon, rally, police allegedly abandoned a small conservative group to the clutches of antifa punks.

The scene, captured by journalist Andy Ngo, first shows Portland police in riot gear separating a conservative group from the black-clad leftist mob. The group was separated from the main crowd, according to Ngo.

WARNING: The following videos tweeted by Andy Ngo contain strong language. Viewer discretion advised.

According to Ngo’s tweets, the police allegedly abandoned the small group despite the mob presence.

Considering how amped up the black-clad antifa protesters were, this does not appear to be a safe or smart move.

If it quacks like a duck and walks like a duck …

As previously suggested several times by several people regarding Mayor Ted Wheeler, there seems to be a direct connection between the Democrat government of Portland and Antifa.

One thing that cannot be denied also stems from Antifa’s decision to stamp out all voices other than extremely liberal voices. Therefore, you cannot deny the parallels between Antifa and fascism.

Russian nuclear-powered cruise missile

In one of the few exceptions, Newsweek reports on the affects of the failed Russian cruise missile.

russia-nuclear-cruise-missile-test-burevestnik

Russian doctors who expressed fears about the radiation they would be exposed to by treating victims of a failed nuclear-powered missile explosion were ordered to “get to work” by officials, it has been reported.

Secrecy still surrounds the circumstances and impact of a rocket engine blast on a platform in Noyonoksa off the coast of Arkhangelsk on August 8, which killed at least five people and injured six.

The failed test is thought to have involved the nuclear-powered cruise missile in Russian known as “Burevestnik” and in the U.S. as “Skyfall.”

Victims were taken to Arkhangelsk regional hospital for treatment, where doctors say they were not warned about radiation exposure.

More accounts have been emerging from medical staff who treated victims that day.

Health workers have been sworn to secrecy, but one doctor told independent news outlet Meduza medical staff demanded answers from the victims’ government escorts over what the risks would be.

“Those accompanying the patients replied that everyone had been decontaminated. We were told: ‘They pose no danger for you, get to work.’

“After we started to operate on them, dosimetrists arrived and measured the levels of beta radiation and then ran out of the operating room in fear.

“When doctors asked them what had happened, they confessed that the beta radiation was off the scale.”

He said that other patients in the emergency room were also put at risk.

What is Russia hiding

A Deutsche Welle article explores the Russian nuclear-powered cruise missile mishap.

Burevestnik-nuclear-powered-cruise-missile.

After an explosion at a Russian missile-testing site led to a surge in radiation, five monitoring stations went offline. This did not happen by chance, experts say.

Concern is growing that the Russian authorities are covering up the scale of the explosion at a military site outside Severodvinsk on August 8. It emerged this week that five local monitoring stations had gone offline in the aftermath of the accident. This was reported by the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO), a Vienna based independent group which operates an international network of radiation monitoring stations. The CTBTO funds the stations in Russia, which are run by the country’s Defense Ministry.

The data recorded by these stations is automatically shared with the CTBTO and other members of the organization in accordance with an agreement signed by 184 countries to ban all nuclear testing, which Russia has ratified. However, because countries such as North Korea and Iran have refused to ratify it, the agreement has yet to become binding, a spokesperson for the CTBTO told DW.

The route of the radiation clouds

At first, Russia attributed the problem with the radiation monitoring stations to an error in their communication system. But later the country’s deputy foreign minister Sergei Ryabkov said that handing over the data from the stations to the CTBTO is a “completely voluntary” activity.

Experts interviewed by DW were convinced that the shutdown of the stations was directly connected to the blast outside Severodvinsk and that the Russian government was concealing information on the incident.

Lassina Zerbo, the CTBTO’s Executive Secretary, was one of the first to link the failure of the stations to the explosion. In a tweet, Zerbo published a map of how the radioactive clouds could have dispersed, based on weather conditions in the days after the blast. According to the model he outlined, the clouds would have travelled almost exclusively over Russian territory.

Does the press deny these stories because they deny the uniting power of external threats?

In part, Reagan lead by showing the reality of the threat of the Russian evil empire. He drew word pictures within his speeches showing us the murderous intent of rulers who had enslaved millions of their own subjects while they sought to expand their holdings worldwide.

Why don’t the Democrats start a rallying cry against the Russians and the threat they pose?

The community whose heart strings were regularly pulled “for the children” have been abandoned by Democrats because …

A 21 August 2019 article at the American Family Association suggests that children (once the object of pleas from the left) now are the target of action by the LGBTQ community.

08_19-lharvey

I admit that I don’t understand the “progressive” mind.

When public libraries – in the name of tolerance and diversity – invite transvestite “drag queens” to read to a group of children – I am NOT sympathetic.

Even as I write this, I feel my anger rising.

THESE ARE CHILDREN!

I wish this insanity represented isolated events, but it does not. First Things, a respected publication, reports that Drag Queen Story Hours are a “global phenomenon” with more than 35 chapters in the U.S. alone and that the events often draw hundreds of participants.

The New York Times defended these abominations as “nice public event[s].” Slate magazine called them mere exhibitions of “free speech and association.”

Christians, we are in a war with evil. It is important we remain faithful and defend the truths of Scripture.

Let there be no doubt that the intent of these far-left extremists is pure evil. Consider these recent attempts to radicalize our children and grandchildren:

  • Arthur (PBS) – In May, the beloved animated children’s series revealed that one of its longtime main characters and Arthur’s teacher, Mr. Ratburn, is “gay” and getting married.
  • Cartoon Network – For LGBTQ Pride Month in June, the popular children’s network tweeted outhe message: “We want to wish everyone a HAPPY PRIDE and encourage all of our LGBTQ+ fans to stand proud all year long!”

These purveyors of evil don’t care what parents and grandparents think. They are aiming for our children.

This clearly demonstrates two critical realities for America going forward:

  1. Christians must be instructed about what the Bible teaches and what it means for our nation’s moral foundations; and
  2. Christians must be salt and light – including being active in culture and politics.

How do we go forward in that vision?

First, we must recognize that ideas have consequences. In other words, a nation impacted by Christianity is going to look much different than one dominated by a Marxist, Muslim, or other worldviews.

Then, we must learn to defend and articulate the truth of a Christian worldview in contrast to the myriad of other belief systems in the world.

As noted earlier, transsexual ideology will impact women’s rights in ways Democrats do not want to acknowledge

But first, consider what the Bible says

In the Bible, we are told “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:28). We are also told “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them” (Genesis 1:27). Therefore, while men and women are not interchangeable and while they are both “imago dei” (in the image of God), they are equal in the eyes of God.

With this in mind, don’t let us imagine that there will not be consequences when we try to assign guilt to God (“He put me in the wrong body.”), decide to play God with our bodies with pharmaceuticals, and then go after children (although warned in Luke 17:2).

Nonetheless, as Christians, we need to respond with compassion and be prepared to search for answers to the questions asked of us. This is evident because there is no condemnation in the commandment to “save others, snatching them out of the fire; and on some have mercy with fear, hating even the garment polluted by the flesh” (Jude 1:23). Likewise, we are to answer (and not condemn), as required by the commandment to “sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence” (1 Peter 3:15). Still, providing this defense will come via the truth.

Additionally, there is the subject of protecting the children

As warned in Luke 17:2 and Matthew 18:6, “whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.” Therefore, care must be taken to protect children from stumbling.

Additionally, Christians and Jews find themselves charged with protecting helpless children (as outlined in Psalm 82:3; Proverbs 31:8-9; Isaiah 1:17; James 1:27, and a number of other verses).

As trans high school athletes win state titles, parents petition to ban them

As reported from the pro-transgender side, Outsports points out in a 14 June 2018 article:

Yearwood

Two transgender high school athletes in Connecticut both did really well on the track this season. Too well, say some detractors who are now trying to ban all transgender athletes from competing as their gender.

What has been a quiet murmur since the success last year of Andraya Yearwood now, with the added success of fellow trans sprinter Terry Miller, is quickly becoming a full-blown controversy in a state with some of the country’s most welcoming policies for trans athletes.

Recently, at the Connecticut state championships, Miller set Connecticut state open meet records in the girls 100-meter and 200-meter races en route to two state titles.

Miller, a sophomore, has added two New England regional championships to her trophy case, for both the 100-meter and 200-meter.

Yearwood, also a sophomore, finished second in the 100-meter at the state meet, losing only to Miller.

Now some parents and student-athletes are up in arms, starting petitions to ban trans athletes from competing.

“I think it’s unfair to the girls who work really hard to do well and qualify for Opens and New Englands [competitions],” Selina Soule, a sophomore who finished sixth in the 100-meter at the state meet, told the Hartford Courant. “These girls, they’re just coming in and beating everyone.”

13 Reasons to Build the Wall & Change the Law


  1. Border Patrol Is Dropping Hundreds of Ill and Hungry Migrants at Southern California Greyhound Stations

The Intercept reports in a left-leaning manner on their view of the “war on immigrants” who are being provided rides to interior bus stations.

Greyhound-SanBernardino

The vans started coming on May 14, depositing their passengers into an alley by the Greyhound station in San Bernardino, California, and then taking off. The first night, the station’s small lobby quickly filled with migrants from Guatemala and elsewhere who had been abruptly dropped off there by the U.S. Border Patrol.

The manager of the station ended up getting many of them tickets to Los Angeles that night, said Luis Suarez, of the Inland Coalition for Immigrant Justice. “It’s open 24/7, and he wanted them to have a warm place at least. San Bernardino closes at 2 a.m.” On summer nights, temperatures can drop 30 degrees in the city, which is located in the foothills of a mountain range about 60 miles east of Los Angeles.

In the following days, word spread among community groups that Border Patrol was leaving large numbers of migrants at the bus station several times a day without any orientation or assistance. “Our first day on the scene was that Thursday, May 16,” Suarez said. “By then, some of these folks had been sleeping out on the street overnight. We found maybe 35 people, extremely hungry, some of the kids were sick, people hadn’t showered since they’d crossed the border and been kept in hieleras” (the holding cells known in Spanish as “iceboxes” for their freezing air conditioning).

“Border Patrol was not providing medical attention” before dropping off the migrants, said Erika Paz, also with the coalition. “Everyone had a cold. … There was one youth who was seriously dehydrated, and our local doctors were able to bring him back to health.” In recent months, five Guatemalan children have died while in U.S. Customs and Border Protection, or CBP, custody or soon after being released, of flu or other ailments.

While this article verifies points denied by Nancy Pelosi (that we don’t have a crisis at our borders or that no resources are needed at the border), it also skirts past issues that liberals create.

Obamacare was all about bankrupting the middle class for the purpose of giving health care to people who do not provide their own. Now the people in this article complain that people who entered America illegally have not received health care through the ICE agents.

They complain that an overburdened ICE is not taking these people to a bus station in Los Angeles (where there is a typhus epidemic).

  1. Border Patrol holding 900 at facility fit for 125 in situation that ‘could turn violent’

The Washington Examiner uses a 31 May 2019 article to illustrate how the surge of illegal aliens has come to backfire on those breaking into America.

BorderCamp

A government watchdog is warning of a potentially “violent” situation at one Border Patrol station on the U.S.-Mexico border where migrants are held in unsafe conditions. Even so, Homeland Security officials are not planning changes anytime soon.

The Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General released a report Friday that found “dangerous overcrowding” among adults being held at the El Paso Del Norte Processing Center in West Texas.

During an unannounced trip to the border May 7 to 8, Inspector General Office workers observed 900 people being held at a facility where the maximum capacity is 125 people.

Inspectors peered into cells and found 76 people in one fit for a dozen people. Another cell suitable for eight people held 41. A third cell with capacity for 35 was holding 155 people.

“Border Patrol agents told us some of the detainees had been held in standing-room-only conditions for days or weeks,” the inspector general report states.

CBP’s 2015 National Standards on Transport, Escort, Detention, and Search standards state that “under no circumstances should the maximum occupancy rate, as set by the fire marshal, be exceeded.”

For the sake of those who would think of breaking in to America, build a wall and close the border. Create and enforce sane laws that protect our citizens and allow for the inclusion of people willing to both provide a service to America (as opposed to 71% of illegals with children who collect welfare) and to become Americans (as opposed to refusing to assimilate).

  1. Texas on pace for ANOTHER record month in illegal immigration: 19% increase from April

The Conservative Review reports in a 31 May 2019 article on Texas’ continued record-breaking illegal alien problem.

After the new record numbers of family units coming to the border almost every month this fiscal year, some might have thought the crisis would have maxed out in April and the numbers would begin decreasing. But preliminary data from Customs and Border Protection (CBP) apprehensions so far in May show that numbers continue to skyrocket.

According to preliminary weekly data used internally by CBP and given to CR by a Border Patrol agent who must remain anonymous because he is not authorized to speak to the press, 71,834 illegal aliens were apprehended between points of entry in the state of Texas from May 1 to May 28. That works out to a daily pace of 2,565.5 per day or a flow of 936,408 annually – just in the state of Texas alone. One has to go back to fiscal year 2006 to find this level of annual apprehensions in all four border states combined.

This ensures that May will now crush April’s unfathomable numbers. The same internal, preliminary CBP data for April shows that 60,476 illegals were apprehended in Texas during an equivalent 28-day period from April 3 through April 30. That means that illegal immigration into Texas likely increased roughly 18.8 percent in May over April.

Overall, in April, almost 99,000 illegal immigrants were caught between points of entry at the entire southwestern border, in addition to roughly 10,000 inadmissible immigrants at points of entry. Given that approximately 60 percent of the aliens have been coming in through Texas and Texas’ numbers increased almost 19 percent in May, it’s likely that when the final numbers are tallied for the entire border, May will easily set another overall record. Axios is reporting that 75,000 families have arrived, absolutely blowing out the record 58,000 in April.

On Wednesday, a record 1,036 illegal immigrants came in one large group at El Paso, which is the most of any single group coming in at once. Clearly, the situation is getting worse, not better.

While the overwhelming majority of the illegal aliens hailed from the three northern triangle countries in Central America, there were also a number of people from other Latin American countries and even other parts of the world. There were 1,045 from Brazil, 1,787 from Cuba, 1,118 from Ecuador, and 1,301 from Nicaragua. This suggests that a number of people in other countries relatively close to the smuggling routes are catching on to the de facto open border for those coming in with a child.

There were also illegal aliens caught from countries of possible terror concern, including 67 from Bangladesh and 40 from Uzbekistan. Special interest aliens (SIAs) usually pay smugglers much more to get smuggled in while agents are tied down with Central American family units, so it’s very likely that the apprehension rate for those from countries of particular concern is lower.

Just as most families cannot afford Obamacare, we cannot afford to take in this many immigrants when they are not self-supporting. When 71% of illegals with children are collecting welfare, but have never contributed a cent to the program, that creates a problem.

Of course, San Fran Nan and her protege AOC would suggest that we only need to raise taxes on the rich. However, what happens when (as happened in New York), the rich people that they wanted to use to raise taxes get up and move?

  1. Here’s How The Asylum System Is Being Exploited

HowTheAsylumSystemIsBeingExploited

The Daily Caller expounds in a 19 May 2019 article on the ways illegal aliens have been taking advantage of our asylum system. It tells how people who come to our borders have been coached to make claims of fleeing violence or religious oppression while, in actuality, they only flee economic conditions. Additionally, the uptick of “families” with children has its origins in American immigration law.

Tens of thousands of apprehended migrants from the Central American countries driving the border crisis exploit loopholes in the immigration system by making false asylum claims, according to data, experts and surveys.

The loopholes allow “people with suspect asylum claims … to make their way into the interior of the United States and disappear,” one expert told The Daily Caller News Foundation. Data shows only about half of the migrants from those countries who claim asylum actually file a formal application after being let into the U.S.

Northern-Triangle-2017-Reasons-for-LeavingAsylum is a status reserved for individuals who face persecution in their homeland, but less than 4% of migrants from the Northern Triangle countries of Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras exclusively said they were fleeing violence, while 72% cited economic conditions as their sole reason for leaving, according to a 2017 survey of deported migrants by the Migration in the Southern Border of Mexico (EMIF).

Just 10% cited both violence and economic conditions as motivating factors.

“The vast majority of current Central American asylum seekers — by their own admission — are economic migrants who do not qualify for asylum, because they are not subject to persecution on the basis of race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group,” Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) research director Matt O’Brien told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Of course, the ACLU and a number of other organizations gladly coach illegal aliens in the correct words to say to game the system. Sadly, some of the groups that I would otherwise support (like Catholic Charities) are known to coach illegals in methods of lying to game the law. Were it not for the fact that charities like this get funds from the government to take care of illegal aliens who have entered the system, this would not seem so bad. However, with this in mind, it seems very self-serving of them.

  1. Obama Border Official Brooks: Trump Is ‘Right’ About Border Crisis, But He Has ‘No Policy Process’

david_brooks

In a 6 April 2019 Breitbart article, Obama’s Border Official David Brooks is quoted as having agreed with President Trump (but only to the degree that would admit the obvious).

On Friday’s “PBS NewsHour,” New York Times columnist David Brooks stated that President Trump is correct that there is a crisis on the border, but Trump lacks a policy process and a wall isn’t the solution.

Brooks said, “I give him a little credit. He has been saying there’s a crisis on the border for the past six months and eight months, and he’s right. And I think some of us have downplayed that.”

It’s good to see that, when Nancy Pelosi adamantly denies the reality of the crisis at the border, someone with knowledge on the Democrat side is willing to stand up and tell the truth.

DallasShelter

  1. Dallas, Houston considered for new migrant shelters as monthly apprehensions expected to reach 100,000

This 8 April 2019 Dallas News article pointed out how several mega-centers have been planned for Dallas and Houston.

Thousands of asylum-seeking children could be headed to Dallas as the federal government looks to relieve pressure on a bloated immigration system and overwhelmed nonprofit shelters along the U.S.-Mexico border.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has contacted Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins to gauge the county’s willingness and ability to house some migrants as shelters along the border become overwhelmed by the number of asylum seekers vying to stay in the U.S.

Jenkins said his office received a letter from HHS Regional Director Fred Schuster, informing him that Dallas was being scouted as a possible shelter location.

“I let him know that we are ready, willing and able to help out these kids,” Jenkins said. “I asked him to let us do our part.”

A HHS spokesperson confirmed that the Office of Refugee Resettlement in HHS’ Administration for Children and Families is assessing vacant properties in Dallas, Fort Worth, San Antonio and Houston for “potential future use as state-licensed permanent shelter locations for unaccompanied alien children.”

Other cities being looked at are Phoenix, Arizona and Atlanta, Georgia. HHS is considering adding shelters to avoid using temporary shelters, like the Tornillo tent city.The development comes as apprehensions for the month of March are projected to rise to more than 100,000, with some experts concerned that totals could exceed 150,000 in the coming months.

On the border, the situation continues to have the look of a crisis: Troops are deployed, lining concertina wire on steel bollard fences. Border Patrol agents rounding up hundreds of migrants and showcasing them to the media.

Sadly, these shelters proved inadequate for the surge that occurred shortly after these shelters were announced. It seems that the illegal aliens are looking at the accommodations being prepared and this encourages them and others to come.

CubansSeekAsylum

  1. Inspired by migrant caravans, new wave of Cubans seek U.S. asylum

According to 9 April 2019 Reuters article shares how Cubans have been making a new push for asylum.

Isel Rojas put his dream of leaving Cuba on hold when the United States ended a generous immigration policy for island residents. But watching coverage of migrant caravans heading from Central America toward the United States on Cuban television last year, he began to see a new path.

One morning in January, he woke up and told his wife he was finally ready. Fifteen days later, he was gone.

“If they can do it, why can’t we?” said Rojas, a 48-year-old who worked in agriculture in the eastern city of Holguin, recalling the images of young men and families traveling en masse to the Mexico-U.S. border.

Rojas is now waiting to apply for U.S. asylum in the Mexican border town of Ciudad Juarez, which has become a magnet for Cuban migrants.

Political repression and bleak economic prospects remain the primary reasons cited by Cubans for migrating from the Communist-ruled island, a Cold War foe of the United States. But some in Ciudad Juarez say news of the caravans also motivated them, giving them the impression the United States was accepting migrants.

Since early last year, the caravans have been a frequent target of U.S. President Donald Trump as he advocates for stricter immigration policies. Critics say the president’s statements about the caravans, including a series of angry tweets, have ironically enlarged the groups and publicized asylum as a possible avenue to legal status.

“The person who created the media coverage and who drove the issue of the caravans has been President Trump,” Tonatiuh Guillen, the head of Mexico’s National Migration Institute, said on local radio last week.

The addition of Cubans to those flows is adding to the pressure on already overwhelmed shelters and border authorities in Mexico and the United States. More than 100,000 people were apprehended or presented themselves to authorities in March, the White House said on Friday, calling it the highest number in a decade. Trump has threatened a border shutdown or tariffs on Mexico in retaliation.

As mentioned in the third article in this series, illegal aliens from nations across the globe (even as far as Uzbekistan and Bangladesh). Previous posts have mentioned illegals caught at our border who hailed from Pakistan, India, Romania, and some Middle Eastern nations.

  1. “The Violent Type of People”: Drug Cartels taking Advantage of Migrant Tidal Wave Distraction

In a 8 April 2019 Christian Broadcasting Network article, we find how drug running and waves of illegal aliens has affected the ranchers along the border.

US Customs and Border Protection shut down a border crossing Saturday between Juarez, Mexico and El Paso, Texas, saying the crisis of migrants crossing illegally requires the agency to deploy its agents along the unguarded border fence.

But in nearby New Mexico, the risks to America go even beyond the flood of illegal immigration.

As the tidal wave of migrants at the southern border dominates the attention of authorities, cartels are using the distraction to ship record amounts of drugs into the US. So far this fiscal year, seizures of cocaine along the border are on pace to triple last year’s totals.

The Johnson family has been ranching 160,000 acres of the New Mexico desert for four generations.

Joe Johnson tells CBN News, “Well my grandfather came here in 1918, and we’ve been here 101 years this year.”

He’s seen the makeup of illegal border crossers change over the years. “I think what we have coming through us is the violent type of people… More drug traffic.”

“This right here is what the border patrol calls nineteen canyon. And we’ve been told many times we ought to stay out of here because of the danger. But we can’t. We have to keep an eye on our border.”

Amazing that the organization that has been known to chop off the heads of those who cross them might also use these illegal aliens as human shields or decoys to keep the police from their illegal and poisonous product.

Migrant Families Arrive In Busloads As Border Crossings Hit 10-Year High

When even National Public Radio starts to take notice in a 5 March 2019 article, you know that the border crisis has grown beyond a simple crisis.

The U.S. Border Patrol apprehended more than 66,000 migrants at the Southern border in February, the highest total for a single month in almost a decade.

The majority of those arrested were migrant families or children traveling alone or without a parent, according to figures released Tuesday by U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Many of the migrants say they’re fleeing criminal gangs and poverty in Central America to seek asylum in the United States.

“This is clearly both a border security and humanitarian crisis,” said CBP Commissioner Kevin McAleenan at a press briefing.

Between October and last week, Border Patrol agents have picked up more than 260,000 people — a 90 percent jump over the same period a year ago.

As we see from the YouTube video posted by a South Texas resident during January 2019, the border crisis exists.

  1. Although the media attempts to hide it, more of the murders than they report have come by way of illegals

Although the KRGV went to great measures to conceal that a shooter was a Mexican national, they let it slip.

An 18-year-old man is being held without bond on a capital murder charge after Houston authorities say he fatally shot two brothers in an ambush attack from a rooftop.

Marlon Valdez was being held Monday in the Harris County jail after appearing before a judge a day earlier who denied bond for the Mexican national.

Authorities say Valdez was atop an abandoned home Thursday and armed with a semi-automatic rifle when he fired on a group of people as they arrived to settle a lingering feud with another group.

Police Chief Art Acevedo previously said the “coward shot these young people like they were deer.”

Naturally, the hometown paper (the Houston Chronicle) hid the fact that this murderer was an illegal alien. Now, all of their articles on the perpetrator have been deleted.

  1. The Story of Another Angel Dad

USA Today provides the story of an Angel Dad who lost his daughter to an illegal alien.

In his declaration of a national emergency on our southern border, President Trump recognized the Americans who experienced the consequences of that emergency firsthand: angel moms and dads.

I never expected I would be one of them.

My beautiful daughter, Mandy, was a 28-year-old sixth-grade teacher at Eastwood Heights Elementary School, and the center of our family. She was my world, she was my wife’s best friend and, most importantly, she was my baby girl.

On the morning of November 22, 2018 — Thanksgiving Day — a man who should never have been in our country drank several beers before getting behind the wheel of a car. He blew through two red lights at an intersection, killed my daughter, and changed our lives forever.

Surveillance footage shows that Mandy was using a crosswalk as she crossed the street. A witness described the sound of the impact as being so loud that he thought two vehicles had collided, not that a human being was struck. My daughter died on the spot.

We should not have even one of these. Sadly, there were enough angel parents to pack Nancy Pelosi’s office so that she had to sneak out the back.

  1. Illegal immigration at worst rate since 2007

The Washington Times even reported in a 5 March 2019 article how illegal immigration had hit the worst rate since 2007 (when Obama posted billboards and distributed leaflets in Mexico telling how to game the system).

Illegal immigration continues to break records on the southwestern border — and they’re not good ones.

The number of families snared trying to sneak into the U.S. soared by 50 percent in one month alone, setting an all-time record with more than 36,000 family members apprehended, Homeland Security officials announced Tuesday.

The government has also encountered some 70 groups of at least 100 migrants during the first five months of the fiscal year, shattering records and placing new challenges on Border Patrol agents.

The mini-caravans are being funneled to some of the remotest parts of the border, where there is little in the way of medical help and it takes hours to process and transport the groups. That takes agents off the line, and drug smugglers use the distraction to send across their shipments, top border officials said.

“We are facing alarming trends,” said Kevin K. McAleenan, commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

These are records that we don’t need to break.
