Three stories of good news concerning coronavirus

Featured

  1. One hundred and fifty thousand immigrants from seventy-two nations with coronavirus stopped at border

The Washington Examiner reported in a 11 March 2020 article that 150,000 immigrants from 72 nations with coronavirus have been stopped at border.

Some 150,000 illegal immigrants from 72 nations with cases of the coronavirus have been apprehended or deemed inadmissible from entering the United States since November, raising the ongoing border crisis to a potential public health threat, according to officials.

ReturnToMexicoPolicyFruitsNew figures provided to Secrets show that over half of the nearly 300,000 illegal immigrants apprehended or deemed “inadmissible” this fiscal year came from nations with cases of the coronavirus, including China, Italy, Iran, and South Korea.

The administration has been bracing for a federal court decision that would junk its “remain in Mexico” policy and open the doors on the southwest border. But the U.S. Supreme Court Wednesday put that on hold as legal arguments on both sides continue in the liberal 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which oversees Arizona and California.

“The border/immigration situation has taken on a whole new dynamic; it’s a public health threat,” said an official.

Secrets recently reported that 328 Chinese immigrants had been seized illegally crossing the border since the virus outbreak began in China.

So far, 150,958 immigrants from 72 nations with the virus have been stopped at the border. DHS has sought to return, repatriate, and remove as many as possible.

What’s more, another 43,000 from Latin nations including Venezuela, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti and Nicaragua — nations that haven’t reported the virus — have been turned away to wait.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials said last week none of the immigrants stopped by agents showed signs of the virus.

The administration has been making the case that continuing the so-called Migrant Protection Protocols that keep immigrants in Mexico pending approval to come into the U.S. to seek asylum is both an important national security and health security issue.

“MPP is all the more critical to keep Americans safe and healthy, which can only be accomplished through lawful and orderly migration,” said an official.

Another said, “We have a unique public health threat posed by individuals arriving unlawfully at the border, where migrants, law enforcement officials, frontline personnel, and the American public are put at risk. All it would take is a single infected individual to impact the detained migrant community within DHS facilities. Without proper precautions, which can only happen through orderly, lawful migration, the virus threatens to spread rapidly. Any halting of MPP would exacerbate this threat.”

Should the policy be lifted, holding stations run by the Department of Homeland Security would immediately fill up, and, there is the potential that the spillover would have to be shipped to facilities around the country.

Luckily, the Supreme Court has decided to uphold President Trump’s right to keep this policy

Even the liberal-left, Trump bashing CNN reported that the Supreme court upheld Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy.

In this age of Coronavirus panic, at least the Supreme court seems more reasonable than Bernie and Biden, both of whom pledged to open the border.

  1. Mullah who said Coronavirus was Allah’s punishment
    catches …

This comes from the department of “if you are going to claim an illness constitutes divine punishment on a group, make sure you don’t also catch the illness.” According to a MEMRI article published on 28 February 2020, one Iraqi Shi’ite scholar claimed that the Coronavirus was Allah’s punishment of China for their mockery of Islam.

https://youtu.be/K7BENXxou60
Shi’ite Iraqi Islamic scholar Hadi Al-Modarresi, who is based in Qom, Iran, said in a video that was uploaded to the Internet on February 28, 2020 that the spread of coronavirus is undoubtedly an act of Allah that is divine punishment against the Chinese for their treatment, mockery, and disrespect towards Muslims and Islam. In early March, online sources reported that Al-Modarresi contracted coronavirus.

HadiAl-ModarresiHadi Al-Modarresi: “It is obvious that the spread of this virus is an act of Allah. How do we know this? The spread of the coronavirus began in China, an ancient and vast country, the population of which makes up one seventh of humanity. More than a billion people live in that country. The authorities in that country are tyrannical and they laid siege to more than a million Muslims and placed them under house arrest. The journalists in that country began to mock the niqab of Muslim women and they forced Muslim men to eat pork and drink wine. Allah sent a disease upon them and this disease laid siege to 40 million [Chinese people]. The same niqab that they mocked has been forced upon them, both men and women, by Allah, by means of the state authorities and officials.

[…]

“Islam forbade people from eating insects, but [the Chinese] mocked this matter. And there you have it, this disease spread from the world of animals – be it bats, ants, or snakes, the result is the same – to the human world and it has scared humanity in its entirety.”

Occasionally, you just have to laugh

While I don’t minimize the risk of suffering to this man, the eternal risk to his soul by following a twisting of the message of the gospel will cost him much more.

Still, in this case, you just have to step back and laugh when someone gets hoisted on his own petard.

petard

Of course, other pieces of good news float all around this story. First, the good news that (in spite of both our self-righteousness [Romans 10:3] and sin [Romans 3:23]), God loves us and even this man and wants both us and him in heaven, if he (or we) would only accept the gift [John 3:16]. Another piece of good news previously blogged here is that Iranians have been turning to Christ due to the heavy hand of the regime, one-on-one evangelism, and the calling of God through dreams. Maybe this man can be reached.

  1. Most coronavirus patients recover, still anxiety, fear loom

According to an Associated Press article published 11 March 2020, most coronavirus patients recover. Still, with all of the media-driven hype, everyone is anxious. Therefore, it is really surprising when a bit of truth leaks out through the main stream media (as highlighted by the bolding, which is mine).

Amid all the fears, quarantines and stockpiling of food, it has been easy to ignore the fact that more than 60,000 people have recovered from the coronavirus spreading around the globe.

recovered
A recovered patient

The disease can cause varying degrees of illness and is especially troublesome for older adults and people with existing health problems, who are at risk of severe effects, including pneumonia. But for most of those affected, coronavirus creates only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough, with the vast majority recovering from the virus.

According to the World Health Organization, people with mild illness recover in about two weeks, while those with more severe ailments may take three to six weeks to rebound. In mainland China, where the virus first exploded, more than 80,000 people have been diagnosed, but more than 60,000 already have recovered.

Because the difference in impact can be so great, global health authorities have the difficult task of alerting the public to the virus’ dangers without creating panic.

Already, the widespread consequences of the virus have been staggering, sending shock waves through the world’s financial markets. Global oil prices sustained their worst percentage losses since the the Gulf War in 1991, and new restrictions were imposed in Italy and in Israel as the Holy Week approached.

But even some of the most vulnerable patients can fight their way through the disease.

Charlie Campbell’s father, 89-year-old Eugene Campbell, has been diagnosed with the coronavirus and is hospitalized in Edmonds, Washington. Charlie Campbell said his father’s doctor is cautiously optimistic, adding, “Under normal circumstances, he would discharge my dad, but these aren’t normal circumstances.”

Who would think that the truth might leak out of the main stream media

Among all of the coverage of the hype, who would think that the news that “most patients recover” would be reported? Additionally, who would think that a caption to a graphic within the same article might point out that many cases have recovered? The take-away from that may be a conclusion that a medical doctor brought out during a radio interview on AM 740 KTRH: many people have probably caught the coronavirus without noticing that they had it and have recovered (thence, the mortality rate of this disease may be multiple times lower than originally projected).

Two stories for Christians today


Group (2ndVote) identifies how liberal or conservative charities act

Watchdog Group Is Helping Conservatives Push Back on Leftist Corporate Activism

A Townhall article points out 2ndVote was born and how it operates.

We’ve all experienced it—standing in the checkout line at the grocery store when the clerk asks if you’d like to make a donation to the cause du jour. Sometimes the organization is a household name, other times not. Either way, customers are never given the full picture about how that organization uses its money.

When Dr. David Black was confronted with the question in 2011 at his local grocery store asking for donations to March for Dimes, he obliged without giving it another thought.

To this pro-lifer’s surprise, his wife, former Rep. Diane Black, informed him that the group has ties to Planned Parenthood.

The seemingly mundane incident forced Black, a forensic scientist by training, to question what else he didn’t know.

2ndVoteOut of his curiosity 2ndVote was born—a corporate activism watchdog that researches and exposes what retailers do with your dollars, giving conservatives and Christians the tools they need to shop and donate according to their principles.

While the group started by looking into nonprofits, 2ndVote quickly began to focus on corporations and identified seven conservative and Judeo-Christian values that are under attack: life, religious liberty, marriage, the Second Amendment, immigration, education, and the environment.

To date, the organization has a database of 900 for-profit and nonprofit entities that are ranked on a one (liberal) through five (conservative) scale. Christian and conservative consumers can now shop smarter and easier by utilizing tools on the 2ndVote website and app, such as the Everyday Shopping Guide.

As far as commands from Jesus go, this would fall under “be wise as serpents and innocent as doves”

Jesus set an impossibly high standard that we must strive to attain when He told us:

Behold, I send you out as sheep among wolves, so be shrewd as serpents and innocent as doves. (Matthew 10:16 NASB)

As anyone who has dealt with sheep would know, referring to his followers as sheep was no complement. However, this was a theme within the Old Testament that continued to the New that illustrated the believers’ dependence on God. Nonetheless, while continuing to refer to our dependence on God and the evil of the world (the wolves), Jesus commands us to use our brains to match the wiles of the world.

To make things a little easier, 2ndVote has apps on the Google Play and Apple platforms. Through those apps, any curious user can explore the proclivities of charities they wish to investigate.

If the user comes from the ideological left, the story section and news section of 2ndVote might make that user a bit uncomfortable (just as reading CNN makes most right-leaning users uncomfortable). Still, considering the pro-life genesis of the group, maybe that should be expected.

Therefore, with all this in mind, “study to show yourselves approved” (2 Timothy 2:15).

Islamists burn 30 alive in cars

The BBC reported in a 10 February 2020 article that Islamists burned 30 as they slept in cars in Nigeria.

borno2Most of the victims were travellers who were burnt to death while sleeping in their vehicles during an overnight stop, officials added

The attack took place in Auno town on a major highway in Borno State.

Militant Islamist group Boko Haram and its offshoots have waged a brutal insurgency in Nigeria since 2009.

About 35,000 people have been killed, more than two million have been left homeless and hundreds have been abducted in the conflict.

Nigeria’s government has repeatedly said that the militants have been defeated, but attacks continue.

For the mass media, one or two American illnesses and a number of Chinese deaths in the struggle against coronavirus seem to have outweighed this slaughter

While one might understand the self-interest built into the media’s decision to broadcast news on the coronavirus rather than these Islamist attacks, Christians need to lift up our brothers in prayer. Because this, like a long-festering sore, does not seem to be anywhere near going away — we need to continually pray for these Christians’ delivery.

 

Just eight stories on illegal aliens


  1. Al-Qaeda jihadis caught trying to enter U.S. with fake Colombian passports

Breitbart reports in a 23 January 2020 article that three Al-Qaeda jihadis have been caught trying to enter U.S. with Colombian passports faked by Venezuela.

Syria-al-qaeda-linked-Nusra-Front

American authorities identified and apprehended three Syrian nationals accused of belonging to al-Qaeda in Dallas, Texas, from Colombia, the Colombian news agency RCN reported on Thursday, publishing images of the three individuals’ fake passports.

According to RCN, American law enforcement identified the three individuals as Al Raefee, Tuameh Tuameh, and Al Harari Al Harari. The three are believed to be in U.S. custody, soon to be charged with membership in a terrorist organization. The men appear to have entered Colombia through Venezuela, where they acquired Colombian residency paperwork, a government identification card, and a Colombian passport through an illegal documentation network.

Journalist Luis Carlos Vélez published images of the counterfeit passports on Twitter, noting that the men appeared to have crossed into Colombia through the La Guajira border crossing with Venezuela. Reports have not yet specified how the Syrians entered Venezuela or how long they had spent in the country after leaving Syria. Vélez reportedly stated that the U.S. embassy identified them as al-Qaeda terrorists when they attempted to procure U.S. visas, which does not align with the RCN report that police arrested them in Dallas. The RCN report does not note if Dallas authorities arrested them at the airport, which would suggest the men did receive U.S. visas and got onboard a flight to the country, or if they arrived by other means.

American authorities reportedly suspected criminal activity after inspecting the passports and finding several irregularities. The identification numbers on all three passports, RCN noted, did not match their birthdates. Colombian passports assign numbers to citizens based on when they were born. Although the youngest of the three men is 45 years old according to his passport, the identification number on his passport corresponded to a much more recently born person, at most 25 years old.

If this hasn’t hit the rotation of your local nightly news, ask them why.

I have observed that the local news certainly has time to air the latest “blockbuster” video allegation against the president. They have time to produce op-ed pieces memorializing celebrities who have passed. Why don’t they have time to point out how three Syrians were caught with fake Colombian passports made in Venezuela?

Does the above story shatter their myth of the peaceful illegal alien who just comes to get work? Or does it do too much to bolster President Trump’s call for a border wall?

  1. In a similar story, Honduras arrests U.S.-bound Iranians

Judicial Watch reports in a 17 January 2020 article that four Iranians were arrested in an Honduran caravan of hundreds.

As hundreds join a new U.S.-bound caravan in Honduras, authorities in the crime-infested Central American nation reveal that four Iranians were recently arrested there. Like thousands of illegal immigrants from around the world, the Iranians entered Honduras illegally and were heading north to the United States, according to a Honduran newspaper article that attributes the information to the president, Juan Orlando Hernández. The Iranians were transported to the capital, Tegucigalpa, and officials have launched an investigation.

Four Iranian terrorists in transit to US held in Honduras

Earlier this week Judicial Watch reported on a U.S. alert warning Mexico of armed Iranians planning to enter the country through the southern border, but it’s not clear if the cases are related and calls to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) went unanswered. The bulletin, issued by the Border Patrol’s regional intelligence operation center in Arizona, said that a Guatemalan national may try to smuggle five Middle Easterners—including a suicide bomber—into the U.S. through Mexico. The smuggler and four other men and a woman transited through Guatemala and Belize before reaching Veracruz, Mexico, according to the bulletin. The Guatemalan, whose name is redacted in the government document, was deported from California a year ago. U.S. authorities received the threat after picking up recordings distributed via social media, according to a Spanish-language news story published by a Latin American outlet.

The U.S. alert didn’t faze a busy Mexican border city’s police chief, who confirms the region is full of Middle Easterners, Africans and Asians trekking north. In a Latin American news report published shortly after the U.S. issued the bulletin, Mexicali Police Chief María Elena Andrade Ramírez matter-of-factly said the arrival of people from the Middle East, Africa and Asia as well as the rest of the Americas is “normal” in her California border city of about a million residents. In a separate article published in a Mexicali paper, authorities downplayed the situation by assuring citizens that the arrival of people from the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia and the rest of the Americas is “something normal.”

They don’t magically land in Mexico. Central America has long been a popular route for illegal immigrants from terrorist nations who want to reach the U.S. There’s no doubt many will infiltrate the new caravan heading to the Mexican border from the northern Honduran city of San Pedro Sula. President Hernández says some 70,000 immigrants from these countries cross through Honduras annually, even without an organized caravan. When the first Central American caravan launched from Honduras in the fall of 2018, then Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales confirmed that nearly 100 ISIS terrorists had been apprehended in Guatemala. Like its Honduran neighbor, Guatemala too is a major smuggling corridor for foreigners from African and Asian countries making their way into the U.S. In 2017, Guatemala’s largest paper, Prensa Libra, published an in-depth piece on the inner workings of an international human smuggling network that moves migrants from Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Nepal and Bangladesh to the U.S.

One story is a point. Two draws a line.

If this type of story only happened once, it would make a point. However, it has happened twice. Americans need to stand with our president in the construction of a wall to protect our citizens from foreign threats.

  1. ICE leader blames ‘sanctuary’ policies for NYC killing

Breitbart reports in a 17 January 2020 article how the New York ICE office blames sanctuary city policies for the killing of the 92-year-old woman.

immigration-sanctuary-cities

The country’s top immigration official blamed the “sanctuary policies” of New York City on Friday for the sexual assault and killing of a 92-year-old woman, while the mayor’s office decried such rhetoric as “fear, hate and attempts to divide.”

Matthew Albence, the acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said at a news conference Friday that the slaying could have been prevented if city officials had complied with a federal request to turn over the assailant, a Guyanese national, for deportation.

“It’s unbelievable that I have to come here and plead with the city of New York to cooperate with us to help keep this city safe,” Albence said.

“Make no mistake,” he added. “It is this city’s sanctuary policies that are the sole reason this criminal was allowed to roam the streets freely and end an innocent woman’s life.

This death (and many like it) need to be laid at the feet of inactive politicians

Nancy Pelosi (with her visions of “sparks of Divinity”) needs to recognize that we have enough depravity within the nation without importing and retaining criminals. Therefore, when a foreign national breaks our laws, they need to be shown the door.

  1. NYPD union leader sides with ICE against de Blasio over ‘sanctuary’-tied murder: ‘He owns this’

Fox News reports in a 17 January 2020 article how a NYPD union leader sided with ICE against Democrat Mayor de Blasio.

A top New York Police Department union official on Friday called on Mayor Bill de Blasio to “own” the consequences of the city’s sanctuary policies — while insisting officers want to be allowed to work with federal immigration enforcement — after an illegal immigrant who was freed in November is alleged to have sexually assaulted and murdered a 92-year-old woman.

“The mayor can say what he wants to say — he owns this,” Sergeants Benevolent Association Vice President Vincent Vallelong told reporters. “He should step up and say these are his policies, he owns it.”

The remarks came at a press conference led by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Acting Director Matthew Albence in New York, days after the deadly consequences of the city’s policy again made headlines due to the murder this month of 92-year-old Maria Fuertes.

Reeaz Khan

Reeaz Khan, an illegal Guyanese immigrant, is accused of attacking Fuertes as she walked home on Jan. 6. Fuertes was reportedly found at 2 a.m. in 32-degree weather and near death on a sidewalk with her clothes pulled above her waist. She was taken to a hospital, where she died from injuries that included a broken spine, according to The New York Post. The Post cited law enforcement sources who said she had been sexually assaulted and strangled.

ICE revealed this week that it had issued a detainer — a request that ICE be alerted of an illegal immigrant’s release from custody so that they can be transferred into ICE custody and go through deportation procedures — in November for Khan.

Democrats own this

In a city where Republicans do not hold any significant sway, nobody can attribute the murder of a 92-year-old woman by an illegal alien to a conservative. Therefore, this is nothing but a liberal Democrat issue.

  1. New York Freed 7.5K Criminal Illegal Aliens into U.S. in 2019, Including Convicted Murderers, Sex Abusers

Breitbart reported in a 17 January 2020 article that 7,500 illegal alien criminals were released into the US by New York.

The sanctuary state of New York released more than 7,500 criminal illegal aliens back into communities last year, including convicted murderers and sexual abusers, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials confirmed Friday.

During a press conference, Acting ICE Director Matthew Albence revealed that in 2019, law enforcement officers in New York released roughly 7,516 criminal illegal aliens back into communities despite criminal convictions and charges against them.

criminal-illegal-aliens

In all of those cases, ICE agents asked that these criminal illegal aliens be turned over to them for arrest and deportation. Due to the state’s sanctuary policy, though, all were released. Albence said New York only turned over to ICE about ten criminal illegal aliens last year.

Altogether, these more than 7,500 criminal illegal aliens released back into New York communities had a total of 17,873 criminal convictions and 6,500 criminal charges against them. This includes criminal illegal aliens who have been convicted or charged with:

  • 200 homicides
  • More than 1,000 sexual offenses
  • More than 500 robberies
  • More than 3,500 assaults
  • More than 1,500 DUIs
  • More than 1,000 weapons violations

“The only immigrants protected by such policies are those committing violent and dangerous offenses, often in the same communities that these politicians are purporting to protect,” Albence said during the press conference.

As a second point against the liberals, this rate of releasing criminals can have no good results

We need to remember this when more murders, more rapes, more robberies, and other crimes occur at the hands of these illegals. However, if the media does not separate the murders by illegals from the murders committed by our populace, where will we be? We need to depend more on alternative media (One America News Network, Newsmax, etc).

  1. Harris County Releases Illegal Immigrant DWI Suspect Slated for Deportation to Honduras

According to The Texan reported in a 9 January 2020 article that Harris County released an illegal alien DWI suspect slated for deportation.

At the end of December, the Harris County jail released on bond a DWI suspect who had been ordered deported by a federal immigration judge in 2019.

According to a press release from the Harris County Constable Precinct 4 office, one Emilio Duarte was arrested on December 28, 2019 and charged with Driving While Intoxicated and Failure to Stop and Give Information.

The constable’s press release said that Duarte was booked into the Harris County Jail and then released on bond out of County Court 15.

The Texan requested additional information about the suspect from both the Harris County Sheriff’s Office as well as U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

A media spokesman for the Harris County Sheriff’s Office confirmed to The Texan via email that ICE is notified by HCSO when suspects are booked, but said all other information requests would need to go through ICE. He did not address questions regarding the suspect’s legal status or provide any additional information.

  1. ICE nabs dozens of illegal immigrants with record of child sex offenses, as director slams sanctuary cities

Fox News points out in an 26 September 2019 article how ICE nabbed dozens of illegal aliens with records of child sex violations.

ICE nabs

Acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Matthew Albence on Thursday revealed a recent ICE operation nabbed dozens of illegal immigrants with a record of child sex offenses, as he railed against the dangers of “sanctuary cities” he said put public safety at risk.

“It’s time to publicly call out those who have put politics over public safety, those who make our communities less secure, who create safe havens in which criminal aliens and gangs are allowed to flourish and can victimize innocent people with impunity,” he said in a White House briefing, surrounded by sheriffs and other law enforcement officials.

The briefing was part of a coordinated push by the Trump administration to again highlight the dangers of “sanctuary” jurisdictions that refuse to comply with detainers from immigration enforcement authorities. Senior ICE officials will be holding briefings across the country to warn of the dangers of sanctuary policies.

Those detainers request that local law enforcement notify immigration authorities when an illegal immigrant who has been arrested is due to be released from jail, so that they can be picked up by ICE and placed in deportation proceedings. Albence said that last year they deported more than 145,000 criminal illegal immigrants, including 10,000 gang members, and that about 70 percent of arrests ICE conducts occur via a detainer from a local or state jail or prison.

But with anti-ICE and open-border sentiments taking a growing hold among Democratic lawmakers and left-wing activists, a number of cities and states — including New Jersey, California, Chicago and New York City — have implemented sanctuary policies and refused to cooperate with law enforcement.

Albence pointed to a national ICE operation this week in which officers made 1,300 arrests. He said that of those, officers arrested nearly 200 who could have been arrested in jail if detainers had been honored.

Of all of these stories, this is the one good point

Thank God for the work of the agents of ICE who removed those with child sex offenses from our communities.

  1. Sanctuary city pays illegal alien arrested for DUI cash settlement over immigration hold

With a hat-tip to the Chris Salcedo Show, I found that Judicial Watch reported in a 24 January 2020 article that one sanctuary city paid an illegal alien (arrested for DUI) a cash settlement over immigration hold.

In the latest example of sanctuary madness, a U.S. city is awarding an illegal immigrant with a cash settlement because police detained him for federal authorities after being arrested for driving under the influence. The 29-year-old perpetrator, Edgar Torres Gutierrez, eventually pled guilty to a lesser charge of reckless driving and his pro bono attorneys from a nearby public university sued the city for violating his Constitutional rights as well as a statewide sanctuary law. Under the agreement, Gutierrez will receive $18,750 from taxpayers in the California coastal municipality where he lives illegally. Local police officers will also be forced to watch a training video involving sanctuary measures for the next two years.

Even for a famously liberal state this seems to be a bit much. The unbelievable incident occurred in Laguna Beach, a southern California town of about 23,000 residents. In the summer of 2018, Gutierrez was arrested and jailed by Laguna Beach Police on suspicion of driving under the influence. The law enforcement agency held him at the request of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) so the feds could take custody. In all, Gutierrez spent around 15 hours in Laguna Beach Police custody and several more hours in a Los Angeles immigrant detention facility, according to a local news report. Apparently, Gutierrez wasn’t deported because he is protected by an Obama-era amnesty program, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) that temporarily shields illegal immigrants that came to the U.S. as children. Government figures show that more than100,000 illegal immigrants who have requested DACA have serious criminal histories that include murder, rape and assault charges.

Imagine if every American city paid each of them a settlement for cooperating with federal authorities. Gutierrez came to the U.S. illegally from Mexico when he was three and takes responsibility for the “actions” that led to his arrest. He said this in one local news report: “I acknowledge that and I am at fault for that and I am dealing with the consequences of that.” However, the illegal immigrant added that police should not be working with ICE to deport undocumented aliens like him who are protected under DACA. He is calling on fellow illegal immigrants to speak up and come forward when they feel there’s been an injustice or if their “rights” have been violated. After taking a victory lap, his publicly-funded lawyers filed another complaint this week with the Laguna Beach Police Department that will require more taxpayer resources to defend.

Tell me again how Democrats put American citizens first

When Democrat sanctuary cities both pay illegal aliens and let them off of charges that would set American citizens back by thousands of dollars, please tell me how Democrats put Americans first.

Democrats take idiotic stances


The Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez section of stupid acts

AOC warns of war crimes

Fox News reports on AOC’s idiocy where she claimed Trump had committed a war crime by killing a general who was in an area where US troops had been attacked by Iranian-backed forces (many might consider that a combat zone).

The far-left “Squad” member wasted little time Saturday in denouncing Trump’s warning to Iran.

“This is a war crime,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter. “Threatening to target and kill innocent families, women and children — which is what you’re doing by targeting cultural sites – does not make you a ‘tough guy,’ It does not make you ‘strategic.’ It makes you a monster.”

Fellow “Squad” member Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., also accused Trump of “threatening to commit war crimes.” “God help us all!” she tweeted.

Never mind that the United States Embassy in Iraq was attacked

Never mind that Soleimani had directed attacks against the US Embassy just a week ago. Never mind that Soleimaini had designed the improvised explosive devices that resulted in the deaths of over 600 service men and women. Never mind that Soleimaini had been directed by the UN not to travel due to his coordination of terror. Never mind that countless Iranians had died under his direction. Never mind his connection to Hezbollah and violence launched by that group.

AOC likes a tweet from a Russian-state media claiming Iran doesn’t target civilians

According to the Washington Free Beacon, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez liked a tweet saying that the Iranians never attacked civilians.

This comes with a hat tip to the Chris Salcedo Show. Thanks, Chris.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) liked a tweet from a Russian-funded operative claiming that Iran, the world’s most prolific state sponsor of terrorism, does not target civilians.

“A friend flying into the US says he hasn’t seen so much security since 9/11,” activist Rania Khalek said in a Sunday tweet liked by the Democratic congresswoman. “The US is terrified of how Iran will retaliate. Iran won’t attack civilians, that’s what al Qaeda does. But it shows this assassination did the opposite of making Americans safer and our leaders know it.”
RaniaKhalek_RussianAgent

Khalek is a host for In the Now, a viral media company funded by the Russian government that was kicked off Facebook for its pro-Russia propaganda. She previously served as an editor for anti-Israel site The Electronic Intifada but resigned after speaking at a pro-Bashar al-Assad conference in Syria.

The extent of Khalek’s pro-Iran advocacy was on full display in a recent YouTube livestream in which the activist claimed that “Iran is a country that mostly keeps to itself.” She also said “it’s a really brave country that’s been essential to keeping the Middle East stable throughout the last several decades.”

Contrary to Khalek’s claims, Iran has been responsible for countless attacks on civilians carried out by Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and its funding of various terror organizations. Ocasio-Cortez’s office did not respond to questions about Khalek’s Russian state affiliation or her claims about Iran’s targeting of civilians.

TomSteyerCantDiscloseHundredsOfMillionsDemocratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has railed against campaigns funded by billionaires — but her own 2018 campaign took cash from billionaire and Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer.

The freshman congresswoman, who has endorsed Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in the 2020 presidential race, took aim at billionaires as she campaigned with the self-described socialist in Venice Beach, California, last week.

“For anyone who accuses us for instituting purity tests, it is called having values,” Ocasio-Cortez told the crowd. “It is called having standards for your conduct to not be funded by billionaires but to be funded by the people, which is different!”

But as several outlets reported, Ocasio-Cortez’s 2018 campaign accepted the maximum $2700 donation from Steyer.

Yep, never mind the money from Steyer or the endorsement of Sanders

Never mind the money taken from Steyer. That only makes AOC a standard Democrat hypocrit. Likewise, never mind AOC endorsing big money Sanders (who made all his dough while in office). That can also be ignored by the Democrat-loving press.

Tom Steyer says he can’t disclose hundreds of millions in financial assets

According to the Daily Beast, Tom Steyer can’t disclose where hundreds of millions lie.

TomSteyerCantDiscloseHundredsOfMillionsDemocratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer has insisted publicly that he is divested from his once-extensive fossil fuel interests. But he also has hundreds of millions of dollars tied up in assets that he will not or cannot disclose.

The California billionaire filed a new personal financial accounting last week giving a broad view of his extensive assets and sources of income. But he declined to go into detail about significant segments of his investment portfolio, citing confidentiality agreements that bar him from publicly disclosing the underlying assets in which he is invested.

Those assets are worth between $370 million and $742 million, according to a Daily Beast review of the filing, which only discloses the values in ranges. The total could actually be higher than that, as four of the assets, holdings in two hedge funds and two private equity funds, are valued at more than $50 million, without an upper range (The Daily Beast pegged their values at $50 million precisely for the purposes of this analysis).

Steyer declined to fully detail his holdings in 43 different investment vehicles, including hedge funds managed by Farallon Capital Management, the firm Steyer founded more than 30 years ago.

“Underlying assets are not disclosed due to a preexisting confidentiality agreement,” Steyer repeatedly told the Office of Government Ethics in his financial disclosure filing. For all 43 line items, Steyer pledged that he “will divest this asset if elected.”

Steyer’s arrangement appears kosher legally.  Federal law allows political candidates to shield such specifics from public view if the asset at issue “is considered confidential as a result of a privileged [legal] relationship.”

Bernie Sanders, Climate Hawk, Spends Nearly $300K On Private Jet Travel In Month

The Daily Caller calls out climate hawk Bernie on his private jet travel in one month.

Bernie Sanders

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’s re-election campaign spent just under $300,000 on private jet use in October, Federal Election Commission (FEC) records show.

The Sanders campaign, which is funded primarily by small-dollar donors, paid Apollo Jets $297,685.50 on Oct. 10, FEC records reveal. The payment was marked for “transportation.”

“This expense was for transportation for the senator’s 9-day, 9-state tour to support Democratic candidates up and down the ballot ahead of Election Day,” campaign spokeswoman Arianna Jones told local website VtDigger.com, which first reported on the jet expenses.

“This cost covered the entirety of the tour from Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Carolina, Colorado, Nevada, Arizona, California, and back to Vermont,” Jones said.

Sanders’s private jet use comes despite the senator’s hard-line stance on climate change, which he has consistently called “the single greatest threat facing our planet.”

Because flying generates significantly more greenhouse gases than driving, climate hawks generally advocate against taking unnecessary flights.

“The campaign purchased carbon offsets from NativeEnergy to support renewable energy projects and invest in carbon reduction projects to balance out the emissions produced on the trip,” Jones told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Carbon offsets in theory allow polluters to cancel out their emissions by funding projects aimed at reducing emissions.

Like his protege (AOC), Bernie wants restriction on you, not him

Prison Inmates Made Calls for Michael Bloomberg’s Campaign

Breitbart reports that Bloomberg farmed out his phone calls to inmates.

2012BloombergFormer New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s presidential campaign indirectly used prison labor to make telephone calls, according to a Tuesday report.

Bloomberg’s campaign used third-party vendor ProCom, a New Jersey call center company, to make the calls, according to The Intercept. ProCom reportedly operates two call centers from Oklahoma state jails, where prisoners were making calls on behalf of the billionaire’s campaign to California residents. A source familiar with the matter revealed to The Intercept that incarcerated individuals at Dr. Eddie Warrior Correctional Center were making the calls.

The Bloomberg campaign claimed it did not know prisons were being used to make the calls and said it had terminated the agreement.

“We didn’t know about this and we never would have allowed it if we had,” Bloomberg spokesperson Julie Wood told The Intercept. “We don’t believe in this practice and we’ve now ended our relationship with the subcontractor in question.”

Bloomberg partakes in slave labor while touting his socialist credentials

For all of the things that Bloomberg has touted in his ads, I doubt that a return to slave wages would be found among the brag list. However, by going to the correctional system and hiring his telephone calls out to inmates, Bloomberg has taken part in America’s last vestige of slavery.

Then again, if Bloomberg really has been trying to follow in LBJ’s steps — this is the logical next step (since LBJ came out of the Jim Crow South).

Michael Bloomberg Channels the Big-Government Failures of LBJ

Lifezette reported that Bloomberg fell into the footprints of big-government Lyndon Baines Johnson.

michaelbloombergNoInvestigationOfDemocratsBillionaire 2020 Democrat presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg promised to declare “a war on poverty” during a campaign trip to Stockton, California, on Wednesday.

“As president, my job will be to move all Americans ahead, and that includes committing our country to new and innovative ways to combat poverty. There has to be a war on poverty,” said the exceedingly upscale Democrat at the event, his first trip

Bloomberg may want to check his history books.

Dem President Lyndon Johnson made the same pledge more than 50 years ago — and the result was disastrous.

Multigenerational government dependency, the gutting of entire urban neighborhoods and cities, and the virtual destruction of the minority family unit due to the government’s welfare policies were just some of the consequences of statist income redistribution programs that attempted to replace individual initiative and work ethic with a government check.

But, not being a political party that has ever learned from history, the Dems are back at it again — through this initiative and through party leaders’ open embrace of socialism as a viable economic policy.

Bloomberg, seen by some as a relative moderate in the Democrat field of candidates for the White House, is likely regurgitating this failed mantra as a sop to the hard-Left of the party.

Many of them who have been, and still are, employed by the public assistance industry will like his inference of a great expansion of government programs that will bring their offices greater funding and more staff.

Bloomberg, the moderate socialist in the race, has the press fooled

Problem with the Bloomberg model is that capitalism takes more people out of poverty than charity could ever hope to. Additionally, socialism (as opposed to voluntary charity) drags economies down.

CNN Anchor Describes Bin Laden’s Death As A ‘Nothing Burger’ Compared To Soleimani Killing

CNN‘s Amanpour is shown in a Daily Caller article claiming that the Bin Laden death was a “nothing burger” when compared to the death of Soleimani.

Christiane AmanpourCNN’s chief international anchor described the death of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in 2011 as a “nothing burger” compared to Thursday’s killing of Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani.

The leader of Iran’s elite Quds Force was killed during an airstrike Thursday ordered by President Donald Trump near the Baghdad, Iraq, airport, the Pentagon said in a statement.

“Qasem Soleimani was at the height of his power when he was taken out. Unlike Osama bin Laden, who was a forgotten, you know, nothing burger, sort of hiding in a villa in Pakistan,” CNN’s Christiane Amanpour said Friday.

Former President Barack Obama ordered the raid on bin Laden’s compound in May 2011, resulting in his death. Bin Laden’s death was one of the highlights of the Obama administration.

“But, it’s not the person you take out, it’s what they leave behind and the tentacles and who comes next,” Amanpour continued. “Al-Qaeda terrorism did not end with the sidelining of Osama bin Laden. ISIS has not ended with the killing of al-Baghdadi.”

“So if you’re trying to end whatever is happening, this is a major escalation, and we need to see what the plan is.”

After Refugee Camp ISIS Child Tells UK Reporter ‘We Will Slaughter You’, media ignores it

Breitbart shows us how a kid from an ISIS camp told a reporter “We will slaughter you.”

islamic-stateChildren of Islamic State fighters and their brides in Syrian holding camps may represent a grave threat to the West, with one telling a British reporter: “We will slaughter you.”

“In Arabic, he first quoted a verse from the Koran: ‘God says, “Turn to Allah with sincere repentance in the hope that your Lord will remove you from your ills”,’” recalled Sky News correspondent Mark Stone of an encounter with a jihadist “cub” in the Al Hol camp in Syria, which holds some 70,000 Islamic State women and children, 10,000 of whom are foreigners.

“He was asking us to repent our sins,” Stone continued.

“And then, calmly, he said: ‘We’re going to kill you by slaughtering you. We will slaughter you.’”

Many Western countries are currently seeking to repatriate children born in the shattered caliphate to women who hold (or held) citizenship Western countries.

Just one day in October: Boko Haram Beheads Seven Civilians in Northern Nigeria

Breitbart reported on the continual crisis in Nigeria instigated by Islamists and ignored by the American press.

Boko Haram killed at least seven people.jpgThe radical Islamist faction of Boko Haram killed at least seven people in the city of Ngambu in the Borno state of northeast Nigeria. Local sources said that on Monday, they discovered the bodies of seven brutally decapitated people.

The gunmen “slit their (victims) throats just the way people slaughter goats,” said resident Musa Abor.

The Nigerian government has not yet released the identity of the victims.

Initially, the Boko Haram Islamists focused their aggressions mainly on resisting security forces, but recently they have increasingly targeted local civilians accused of “collaboration” with the military, as well as voluntary civilian militias.

The attacks took place while the people were celebrating the important Muslim feast of Eid al-Adha, a holiday commemorating Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son, Ishmael.

Officials believe that more than two dozen towns and villages in the northeast are under Boko Haram control, though the Nigerian military has vowed to retake all lost ground.

The total of name=”_Hlk400460821″>those killed as a result of the Boko Haram aggression in northeastern Nigeria is now at least 11,000, according to a new report by the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday morning, Boko Haram claimed eight other victims in neighboring Cameroon, separated from Nigeria by a long, porous border. A rocket launched allegedly by Boko Haram from the Nigerian city of Banki fell on the town of Amchide, in the far north of Cameroon, killing at least eight civilians and leaving an unknown number of casualties.

The bomb hit a busy road while people were out shopping. In Amchide, the population is forming vigilante groups to fend off increasingly frequent raids of the Nigerian fighters, who in recent weeks have taken control of several towns and villages in the neighboring states of Borno, Yobe, and Adamawa.

In Niamey Tuesday, a summit of the Lake Chad Basin Commission is scheduled to reinforce the fight against Boko Haram. The summit is to be preceded by a meeting of the defense ministers of Niger, Nigeria, Cameroon, Chad, and Benin.

The South-South and South-East chairman of Nigeria’s Northern Forum, Alhaji Musa Saidu, has called on the members of the Boko Haram sect to lay down their arms and embrace peace.

Five Stabbed at Hanukkah Celebration in New York Suburb

Breitbart documents the anti-Semitic stabbing in liberal New York.

A Hanukkah celebration in a New York suburb turned into horror late Saturday night after a man entered and began stabbing people, witnesses say. Five victims were taken to nearby hospitals, according to police.

The Orthodox Jewish Public Affairs Council for the Hudson Valley Region said in a tweet victims inside the Monsey residence were Hasidic Jews. Two people are in critical condition, co-founder of the council, Yossi Gestetner, told CNN.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has since called the stabbing attack at the rabbi’s home an “act of domestic terrorism.”

“Let’s call it what it is: these people are domestic terrorists.” Watch:

Earlier, local police said the perpetrator fled the scene in a vehicle but that they were able to track him down.

“Horrific,” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said of the stabbing. “So many Jewish families in our city have close ties to Monsey. We cannot overstate the fear people are feeling right now. I’ve spoken to longtime friends who, for the first time in their lives, are fearful to show outward signs of their Jewish faith.”

Walter E. Williams Warns Virginia About Gov. Ralph Northam’s Gun Registry Plan

Breitbart provides details from Walter E. Williams about the effects of Governor Ralph Northam’s gun registry plan.

Columnist and George Mason economics Professor Walter E. Williams is warning Virginia residents about Gov. Ralph Northam’s (D) gun registry plan.

Northam has been pushing an all-out ban on AR-15s and similar rifles for some time, but he recently changed the scope of the ban in the face of the growing Second Amendment Sanctuary movement.

On December 10, 2019, Breitbart News reported that Northam changed his position from supporting an across-the-board ban on possession of such weapons to supporting a ban only in a situation where a person refuses to register the firearm with the government. The Virginia Mercury quoted Northam spokeswoman Alena Yarmosky saying, “The governor’s assault weapons ban will include a grandfather clause for individuals who already own assault weapons, with the requirement they register their weapons before the end of a designated grace period.”

On December 27, 2019, Walter E. Williams used a Fox News op-ed to warn Virginians “not to fall for the registration trick.” He said, “Knowing who owns what weapons is the first step to confiscation.”

Williams added:

James Madison, in Federalist Paper No. 46 wrote that the Constitution preserves “the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation … (where) the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.”

Thomas Jefferson wrote: “What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms.”

Too many Americans believe the Second Amendment grants Americans the right to own firearms only to go hunting and for self-protection. The framers of our Constitution had no such intent in mind.

Registration came before confiscation in Germany and Australia

It happened in the Weimar Republic of Germany where law-abiding citizens complied, but the Communists and Nazis committing acts of political violence did not.

According to the Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, places that went from gun registration to gun confiscation include Soviet Russia, Red China, Cambodia, Kosovo, Great Britain, Australia, New York, and California.

Kentucky governor restores voting rights to 140K felons

CNN reports on how the Kentucky governor restored the voting rights of 140,000 felons.

Newly sworn-in Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear restored voting rights for over 140,000 former felons in the state through an executive order, his office announced Thursday.

“My faith teaches me to treat others with dignity and respect. My faith also teaches forgiveness and that is why I am restoring voting rights to over one hundred forty thousand Kentuckians who have done wrong in the past, but are doing right now,” Beshear, a Democrat, said in a statement. “I want to lift up all of our families and I believe we have a moral responsibility to protect and expand the right to vote.”

Beshear also lamented the state’s voter access issues, asserting that Kentucky has the third highest voter disenfranchisement rate nationwide with nearly 10% of people, and nearly 25% of African-Americans, in the state not being allowed to vote.

The move fulfills a campaign promise after Beshear’s upset victory over former Republican Gov. Matt Bevin in November. It was a key point in Beshear’s platform of progressive issues, including making Medicaid more accessible and replacing Bevin’s state board of education.

The order states that more than 140,000 Kentuckians were unable to vote despite completing their prison terms for non-violent felonies, and that Kentucky was one of two states that did not automatically restore voting rights to former felons. The order does not apply to those incarcerated for treason, bribery in an election and many violent offenses.

Voting rights measures coming from the governor’s office have been a point of contention in Kentucky across several administrations. Beshear’s father, former Gov. Steve Beshear, issued an executive order in 2015 restoring felons’ voting rights. But Bevin promptly reversed it with his own executive order upon taking office later that year.

Bevin said at the time that while he supported “the automatic restoration of civil rights” for qualifying former felons, he believed “that such restoration must come through an amendment to the Kentucky Constitution and not by executive action.”

Under the Kentucky Constitution, those with felony convictions lose their voting rights but “may be restored to their civil rights by executive pardon.”

Kentucky governor Beshear tells Trump state will keep taking refugees

The Courier Journal provided an article on how the governor of Kentucky told Trump that he would continue to take refugees.

Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear has turned down an offer from President Donald Trump’s administration to halt refugee resettlement.

“Kentucky has welcomed refugees for well over three decades,” the Democratic governor wrote in a letter dated Tuesday to U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. “Refugees in Louisville, Lexington, Bowling Green, Owensboro and other locales have contributed to the workforce and economic development of our state.”

About half of the states have consented to keep accepting refugees. No states so far have said they plan to stop accepting refugees under Trump’s order.

Even if a state opts out under Trump’s order, refugees could still move there, but they wouldn’t get funding for medical assistance and screenings, employment, social adjustment services and English language training.

In September, Trump slashed the number of refugees allowed into the U.S. and authorized state and local governments to refuse to accept them. An executive order says that if a state or a locality has not consented to receive refugees under the State Department’s Reception and Placement Program, then refugees should not be resettled within the state or locality unless the secretary of state decides otherwise.

An influx of new refugees will depress the jobs market for the less-skilled among us

Six Separate Foreign Policy Lies by Democrat Joe Biden

Breitbart shows how Joe Biden lied about foreign policy while on the campaign trail.

From Iraq to Iran, Afghanistan to Ukraine, and everywhere in between, President Donald Trump’s campaign says former Vice President Joe Biden has been lying nonstop about foreign policy in recent days in an attempt to revise history in his political favor.

The Democrat presidential frontrunner in 2020, Biden, has made a number of claims in recent days that are demonstrably untrue, ranging from false claims that the Iran deal during the Obama administration “solved” the problem of Iran to untrue claims that he was supportive of former President Obama’s decision to launch the 2011 raid that finally killed Osama bin Laden.

Matt Wolking, the deputy communications director for rapid response for President Trump’s re-election campaign, joined Breitbart News Sunday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel this weekend to expose several of Biden’s recent lies about foreign policy.

“What you’re seeing is Joe Biden is out there on the campaign trail trying to claim he is a foreign policy expert, and he claims that that is his area of expertise—which is really quite funny when you think about it,” Wolking said. “His own Defense Secretary under Obama, Bob Gates, said that he was wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades. So, now Biden is trying to rewrite history. He’s telling lie after lie to voters on a whole host of issues.”

Wolking and the Trump campaign before the show released a document demonstrating how Biden has in recent days spread six separate lies about his foreign policy record, all attempting to clean up what has been a political mess for him in the days leading up to the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primaries next month.

1.) Biden falsely claims he and Obama ‘solved’ Iran

At an event in Iowa on Friday, Biden claimed that the Trump administration had, regarding Iran, sparked an “extremely dangerous problem that our administration had solved and put on the back burner back on the table.”

The claim that Biden and Obama “solved” the Iran issue just is not true.

“He claims that with the Iran nuclear issue, he claims that he and President Obama solved the Iran issue and put it on the back burner,” Wolking said on Breitbart News Sunday. “But that’s ridiculous. President Obama himself admitted that down the road his nuclear deal would have allowed Iran to build the bomb almost instantly, moving the breakout time to near-zero.”

Obama did in an interview NPR in 2015 admit that his deal would not stop Iran from building a nuclear bomb, and that after the thirteenth year of that framework, Iran would be able to build one almost instantly.

With a complicit press, lying will help Sleepy Joe in the short term

Since the main stream media will cover for him, lying will work in the short run. However, when he has to campaign against a real opponent and when he has to work in the real world, lying will result in derision and a lost opportunity. Lying will cost America.

Fact Checkers Nuke Joe Biden on Foreign Policy as Iran Takes Center Stage

Breitbart lists the responses of fact checkers (who normally kiss up to Democrats) when they saw Sleepy Joe’s idiotic statements.

Fact checkers from a number of different establishment media operations crushed former Vice President Joe Biden this week as the issue of Iranian aggression continues to captivate the nation just weeks from the Iowa caucuses.

The shift to foreign policy in the national political debate has not been kind to Biden, who has been hammered by everyone from PolitiFact, to the Washington Post, to even CNN.

Just this week, three brutal fact checks came crushing down on Biden–whom Breitbart News and President Donald Trump’s campaign earlier this week exposed as regularly lying about foreign policy–on a number of different fronts.

First off, PolitiFact nailed the former vice president for embellishing claims about his role in former President Barack Obama’s decision to order the raid that killed Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in 2011.

In an exchange with Fox News’s Peter Doocy last week, Biden lied and claimed that he was supportive of Obama’s decision to send in the special forces team that killed bin Laden:

Doocy: “As commander in chief, if you were ever handed a piece of intelligence that said you can stop an imminent attack on Americans but you have to use an airstrike to take out a terror leader, would you pull the trigger?”

Biden: “Well, we did. Guy’s name was Osama bin Laden.”

Doocy: “Didn’t you tell President Obama not to go after bin Laden?”

Biden: “No, I didn’t. I didn’t.”

That was untrue, as Breitbart News and many other outlets have noted. Biden did oppose the raid, as he, Obama himself, then-White House press secretary Jay Carney, and several Obama Cabinet officials confirmed at the time.

Naval base shooter investigated for possible terrorism links

The Associated Press reported on the investigation of the Saudi man who shot three naval personnel at Pensacola on 6 December 2019.

Naval Air Station Shooting
One rehabilitated Saudi shooter on a gurney

The Saudi student who fatally shot three sailors at a U.S. naval base in Florida hosted a dinner party earlier in the week where he and three others watched videos of mass shootings, a U.S. official told The Associated Press on Saturday.

Officials investigating the deadly attack were working Saturday to determine whether it was motivated by terrorism, while President Donald Trump indicated he would review policies governing foreign military training in the United States.

The Navy on Saturday identified the three victims and hailed them as heroes for trying to stop the shooter and flagging down first responders after being shot.

“The Sailors that lost their lives in the line of duty and showed exceptional heroism and bravery in the face of evil,” Capt. Tim Kinsella, the commanding officer of Naval Air Station Pensacola, said in a statement. “When confronted, they didn’t run from danger; they ran towards it and saved lives.”

The shooter opened fire inside a classroom at the naval base on Friday, killing three people and wounding two sheriff’s deputies, one in the arm and one in the knee, before one of the deputies killed him. Eight others were also hurt. Both deputies were expected to survive.

The official who spoke Saturday said one of the three students who attended the dinner party hosted by the attacker recorded video outside the classroom building while the shooting was taking place. Two other Saudi students watched from a car, the official said.

Ten Saudi students were being held on the base Saturday while several others were unaccounted for, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity after being briefed by federal authorities.

The FBI identified the shooter in a statement Saturday night as Mohammed Alshamrani, 21. Investigators said he was a 2nd Lt. in the Royal Saudi Air Force and was a student naval flight officer of Naval Aviation Schools Command. A U.S. official on Friday said the FBI was examining social media posts and investigating whether he acted alone or was connected to any broader group. The official wasn’t authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.

Two U.S. officials said Friday that authorities were investigating whether the attack was terrorism-related. They spoke on condition of anonymity to disclose information that had not yet been made public.

In remarks at a gathering of top U.S. defense and military officials on Saturday, Defense Secretary Mark Esper was asked whether he could say definitively that the shooting was an act of terrorism.

“No, I can’t say it’s terrorism at this time,” he said, adding that the investigation needs to proceed. He declined to discuss details of the investigation so far.

President Trump also declined to say whether the shooting was terrorism-related. The president tweeted his condolences to the families of the victims on Friday and noted that Saudi King Salman had reassured him in a telephone call that the shooter “in no way shape or form represents the feelings of the Saudi people.”

Naval Air Station shooter wrote manifesto condemning US as ‘nation of evil:’ report

Fox News reports that the Saudi shooter wrote a manifesto that condemned both the US and Israel.

Naval_Air_Station_ShootingThe Saudi national who opened fire in a classroom at a naval air station in Florida Friday morning, killing three before being shot dead by officers, wrote anti-American and anti-Israeli tweets before the rampage, reports say.

Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, who was said to be a second lieutenant in a flight training program for foreign military personnel at Naval Air Station Pensacola, posted a short manifesto to Twitter, AFP reported, citing the SITE Intelligence Group, a group that monitors jihadist media.

A spokesperson for Twitter told Fox News in an email statement Saturday that the account was suspended but they declined to comment further as to when the manifesto was tweeted out.

The FBI told Fox News it was aware of the anti-American Twitter post, but would not comment on whether they’re looking at it as part of the investigation.

Alshamrani entered a classroom early Friday morning and opened fired, killing three people and injuring several others, including two Escambia County Sheriff’s deputies, who were the first to respond.

Sources told Fox News that the scene of the shooting — the classroom, where students usually spend three months at the beginning of the program — indicated that the shooter was a student who was “early” in his training.

While the early reporters did not know that this was an Islamist attack

When seven conspirators were known (including 3 filmers), things were clearer

While the Saudi kingdom technically stands as an ally, maybe now would be a good time to consider a permanent implementation of something President Trump announced 4 days after the shooting.

It seems at least one Republican took one step further than President Trump by calling for Saudi Arabia to be suspended from an American military training programs after a student pilot from Saudi shot and killed three sailors at a U.S. naval base in Florida.

Six Saudis Detained After Pensacola Shooting, Including 3 Who Filmed Attack

Breitbart reports that 6 Saudis have been detained after the Pensasola shooting.

Six Saudi nationals, including three who allegedly filmed Friday’s attack on Naval Air Station Pensacola, were reportedly detained after the shooting.

Breitbart News reported that a gunman opened fire at the air station Friday morning, killing three and wounding numerous others.

The Associated Press reports that the Pensacola gunman was an aviation student from Saudi Arabia, and NBC News reports that the gunman’s name was Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani.

Now the New York Times reports that six other Saudis were detained after the shooting and three of those six allegedly filmed the shooting as it unfolded in Pensacola.

The shooter was reportedly at the Pensacola to train. Former Gov. Rick Scott, currently Sen. Scott (R-FL), expressed concern that the Saudi attacker was in Pensacola training on a U.S. base:

The SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors jihadist media, identified the gunman as Mohammed al-Shamrani, saying he had posted a short manifesto on Twitter that read: “I’m against evil, and America as a whole has turned into a nation of evil.”

antisemites-david-anderson-francine-grahamAn assailant involved in the prolonged firefight in Jersey City, N.J., that left six people dead, including one police officer, was linked on Wednesday to the Black Hebrew Israelite movement, and had published anti-Semitic posts online, a law enforcement official said.

The violent rampage on Tuesday took place largely at a kosher supermarket where three bystanders were killed. The authorities now believe that the store was specifically targeted by the assailants, whom they identified as David N. Anderson, 47, and Francine Graham, 50.

Mr. Anderson appeared to have a connection to the Black Hebrew Israelite movement, though the extent of his involvement in that group remains unclear, the law enforcement official said.

The Black Hebrew Israelites, which has no connection with mainstream Judaism, has been described as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, a legal advocacy group that tracks such movements.

Since the Black Hebrew Israelites antagonized the Native Americans and Nathan Philips, liberals should be well acquainted with them

Since the liberals were so willing to blame the Covington Catholic boys earlier in 2019, they should easily remember that the people antagonizing everyone were the Black Hebrew Israelites.

Every time that this group has appeared in the news, they have been characterized by physically and verbally aggressive Black men working in pairs.

Rashida Tlaib Blames ‘White Supremacy’ for Jersey City Murders

Breitbart points out that Rashida Tlaib wanted people to believe that white supremacists were to blame for the Black Israelites shooting Jewish people.

121219tlaibAntisemitic Rep. Rashida Talib (D-MI) falsely blamed white supremacy for Tuesday’s heinous murders in Jersey City that targeted Jews.

“This is heartbreaking,” Tlaib tweeted, a little before 7 a.m. on Thursday. “White supremacy kills.”

Tlaib then deleted her tweet without comment and without explaining what made her believe this lie and then spread it a full day after the actual attackers had been identified as 47-year-old David Andersen and 50-year-old Francine Grahm, both of whom were black.

Tuesday’s rampage resulted in four murders. After killing Anderson and Grahm in a massive gun battle, police say they found antisemitic posts written by the suspects online. There was also a manifesto left in their car.

Local media reports say that Anderson was once associated with the Black Hebrew Israelites, a black nationalist group made up of racists and antisemites who made the news this year after they were caught on camera hurling homophobic and racist slurs at a group of students from Covington Catholic High School.

To the surprise of no one, America’s fake media smeared the innocent students as racists and portrayed the black nationalists in the most sympathetic light possible.

Anyway, this is all old news. Everyone knew all of this yesterday, and yet a full day later, Social Justice Warrior Tlaib is blaming white supremacists???

Well, maybe Tlaib has found something she loves more than how much she loves smearing Jews — spreading fake news.

“It’s telling, and frankly sick, that Tlaib tweeted out sympathies for the Jews that were murdered blaming it on white supremacists,” tweeted journalist Shoshanna Keats Jaskoll. “Didn’t care enough to find out what happened. Just enough to use dead Jews for her political agenda.”

How does the Islamist Tlaib look at Black Hebrew Israelite cultists attacking Jews and then blame white men?

Maybe this is proof that one does not have to think when going out to speak publicly.




Rep. Rashida Tlaib event at Poway school cancelled day after Trump signs anti-Semitism executive order

San Diego TV Station KUSI reports that Representative Tlaib’s scheduled event at the Poway school was cancelled after President Trump signed an anti-Semitism executive order.

A day after President Trump signed an executive order that targets the growing problem of anti-Semitism on college campuses, the scheduled Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) event featuring Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), has been cancelled.

CAIR’s event, “A Conversation with Rep. Rashida Tlaib,” was originally scheduled for Saturday, December 21, at Westview High School in Poway. Tickets were $65 per person, and Democrat candidate for California’s 53rd Congressional District, Tom Wong, was also going to be featured.

The Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund confirmed the event’s cancellation due to a school-related scheduling conflict.

Tuesday, they sent a letter to Poway Unified School District Superintendent Dr. Marian Kim Phelps, expressing concern that Rep. Tlaib’s appearance in Poway may cause controversy after an anti-Semite shot and killed a congregant at the Chabad of Poway synagogue and wounded three others, during a passover service in April. The letter stated, “Rep. Tlaib has a public history of making anti-Semetic remarks and espousing animosity toward the State of Israel.”

In November, Poway City Council approved a petition to rename a street in memory of the shooting’s victim, Lori Gilbert-Kaye. The Synagogoue’s Rabbi was one of the three injured in the attack.

The Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund executive director, Daniel Piedra said, “Congresswoman Tlaib certainly has a First Amendment right to express her views, but nowhere would her views be more offensive than in a city still healing from an anti-Semitic hate crime.”

Since taking office, Rep. Tlaib has repeatedly made anti-Semitic remarks “espousing animosity toward the State of Israel.” For example, she has compared the boycott movement against Israel to the American boycott of Nazi Germany, has claimed that thinking about the Holocaust gave her “kind of a calming feeling,” and has decried the “racist policies of the government and state of Israel.”

“Poway is still healing from the horrific massacre at the Chabad center. Our letter was a sign of support for the local Jewish community and a notice to Congresswoman Tlaib that anti-Semitism is not welcome in San Diego. Rep. Tlaib’s divisive rhetoric—although protected by the First Amendment—would only have opened fresh wounds,” said the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund.

The executive order President Trump signed Wednesday makes it clear that Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 applies to anti-Semitic discrimination based on race, color, or national origin. The President has also directed federal agencies to identify other ways the government can use nondiscrimination authorities to address anti-Semitism.

The order instructs the U.S. Department of Education to use the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s definition of anti-Semitism — which can include criticism of Israel — when evaluating discrimination complaints under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act. On that basis, the education department could withhold funding from universities that it finds in violation of the article.

Maybe this was preemptive use of good judgement — It’s been a long time in coming.

Considering the number of times that Tlaib has insulted both Jews and Americans, it would not be beyond the pale to assume that Ms Tlaib would always insult both Jews and Americans every time she opened her mouth. Therefore, her canceling this appearance before a school was probably the best of ideas.

Issues for Christians


Christians hunted, marked for death, meet secretly

OneNewsNow reports in a 6 December 2019 article how Christians suffer in Muslim-dominated lands.

syriachild.jpgFor those living in a Muslim island nation and various parts of West Africa, being a Christian means one is marked for death – and those who translate the Bible will likely never return to their homes again … alive.

Wycliffe Associates, one of the world’s leading Bible translation organizations, says workshops and strategies for Bible translation often spring forth from clandestine meetings between its team members and mother-tongue Bible translators.

Undercover Christians

Such workshops, reports Wycliffe Associates, “are springing out of the seeds sown in these secret meetings” – meetings that may take place on an isolated mountain top, or among church leaders disguised as tourists, or during a walk through a crowded market where translators’ prayers and conversations are drowned out by the noise and bartering.

Persecution for following Christ and translating Scripture into native languages in these volatile regions include being hunted, receiving death threats and working in secret to avoid imminent death.

Wycliffe Associates president and CEO Bruce Smith commends native Bible translators for secretly meeting with his ministry team, as the risk of being caught with foreigners could mean death.

“Despite the persecution and risks they face, Christians are reaching out to us, asking for the tools, technology, and training they need to launch Bible translation projects,” Smith states. “I am humbled and overwhelmed to see the tenacity of Christians in the most extreme anti-Christian environments on earth.

“In spite of the hostility of religious and governmental authorities, in spite of the risk of violence, of arrest, of torture, even death, Christians ardently press on,” he adds.

MAST (Mobilized Assistance Supporting Translation) – a collaborative translation method employed by the international nonprofit organization – equips native Christians to share the written Word where it is strictly forbidden. MAST projects currently under way across the globe number more than 1,200. The ministry also equips mother-tongue translators with technology that complements MAST, including computer tablets, Print-On-Demand equipment, and Bible translation recording kits.

In fact, in a number of areas that crack down on Christianity, believers must abandon their home country if they want to translate the Bible and stay alive.

“In some countries, we’ve helped move national Bible translators out of their own countries because their lives are literally at risk if they attempt to translate the Scriptures in their homeland,” Smith shares. “Some translators are at such risk that they will never be able to go home again. The translated Scriptures will have to be smuggled back across the border.”

Tragic stories of Christians giving up their lives and safety are not uncommon in this part of the world.

According to Wycliffe Associates, a translator in West Africa recently was murdered and his wife was mutilated; and one pastor – a hunted man – was forced to flee his country and now lives under a “virtual death sentence.” Regardless, says the ministry, that pastor remains firmly committed to the work of Bible translation for his language group.

Pray for an Islamic reformation where it moves from a cult of death

Pray for a change in the heart of Islam so that the focus moves from killing the enemies of Islam, from killing those who leave Islam, from visiting some form of “revenge” on those who have been deemed to insult Islam, from executing the deviants within the community, from falling on members of certain other named religious communities, and from otherwise focusing on death.

But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. (Matthew 5:44‭-‬45 NASB)

Speaking Truth not Tolerated at the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

It seems that a pro-LGBTQ agenda has crept into the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, as reported by the American Family Association.

SWBTS_Lopez.pngRobert Oscar Lopez is an outspoken witness to the power of God to transform a life.  He was raised by “two moms” and identified as bisexual for years before surrendering his life to Christ.

He has spent his life fighting. First, it was for his own life – for freedom from the clutches of homosexuality. Then it was (and is) against the attacks from the homosexual activist community. Read AFA Journal story “Breaking Free from a Culture of Shame” here.

This man’s resiliency is astounding.

And now he’s fighting one of the most powerful religious organizations in existence – the Southern Baptist Convention.

Prior to being hired in 2016 by Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (SWBTS), Lopez was a tenured professor at California State University. In today’s culture, it is no surprise that a former homosexual now speaking from a biblical perspective would be persecuted.

After repeated subjection to senselessly demeaning investigations at the public university, the sense of relief Lopez experienced when “rescued” into a Christian seminary must have been palpable. The pressure to shut up about his testimony and matters of biblical sexual morality was a thing of the past. Or so he thought.

Last week, the morning after Thanksgiving Day, Lopez received an email notifying him that his position at SWBTS had been eliminated. He told AFA this wasn’t really a surprise to him. He had been asked to resign two months earlier by the provost, Randy Stinson.

“I was called into seven secret meetings,” he explained. “They would never put anything in writing. I was called in alone all the time. I didn’t know who was going to be in the meetings. And I had no forewarning about what was going to be brought up. It was very much like mental intimidation. … They told me people were watching me.”

As part of the series of meetings, Lopez was told he was held in low esteem by the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention. Initially, he was subjected to an onerous process, requiring him to submit requests before writing or speaking on sexual matters. But eventually, Dean Michael Wilkinson made clear that Lopez was to stop talking about all matters of sexuality, including his testimony, homosexuality, and sex abuse.

Lopez had been active in writing and speaking about the dangers of the Equality Act and abuse in the gay community. And he had drafted and submitted a resolution to the SBC supporting counseling to help lead people out of homosexuality.  These were all apparently giant no-nos for the SBC, which according to Lopez has embraced the “Revoice” ideology.  Revoice is a radical movement to promote normalization and acceptance of LGBTQ terms within the church – creating a slippery slope which many believe will lead to full-blown acceptance of homosexuality.

Nothing good comes from capitulation

As we know by the capitulation of Chick-Fil-A to the LGBTQ crowd or by any of any number of reports by Janet Mefferd on “Revoice,” giving in to the demands of the the LGBTQ crowd will only result in a new set of demands to be met. Therefore, the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary must not bend as it seems to be doing.

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, (1 Corinthians 6:9 NASB)

Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth , and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, (Ephesians 6:14 NASB)

Hundreds of Pakistani Christians Sold as Brides to China

Breitbart reports in a 7 December 2019 article on the selling of

pakistan-christiansPage after page, the names stack up: 629 girls and women from across Pakistan who were sold as brides to Chinese men and taken to China. The list, obtained by The Associated Press, was compiled by Pakistani investigators determined to break up trafficking networks exploiting the country´s poor and vulnerable.

The list gives the most concrete figure yet for the number of women caught up in the trafficking schemes since 2018.

But since the time it was put together in June, investigators´ aggressive drive against the networks has largely ground to a halt. Officials with knowledge of the investigations say that is because of pressure from government officials fearful of hurting Pakistan´s lucrative ties to Beijing.

The biggest case against traffickers has fallen apart. In October, a court in Faisalabad acquitted 31 Chinese nationals charged in connection with trafficking. Several of the women who had initially been interviewed by police refused to testify because they were either threatened or bribed into silence, according to a court official and a police investigator familiar with the case. The two spoke on condition of anonymity because they feared retribution for speaking out.

At the same time, the government has sought to curtail investigations, putting “immense pressure” on officials from the Federal Investigation Agency pursuing trafficking networks, said Saleem Iqbal, a Christian activist who has helped parents rescue several young girls from China and prevented others from being sent there.

“Some (FIA officials) were even transferred,” Iqbal said in an interview. “When we talk to Pakistani rulers, they don´t pay any attention. ”

Why does this happen?

It happens because the Christian community of Pakistan has been isolated economically. It happens because China has limited its families to having one child per family. It happens because, with a preference for boys in Eastern cultures, generations of female babies have been aborted due to the one-child mandate.

It happens when a cowardly political class cannot find itself within its black heart to do the right thing. It also happens when a complacent media will not speak up for the underdog (especially when that media stands arrayed against a group like Christians).

Finally, it happens for reasons, both holy and evil, that fly out of our control. Nonetheless, we must prefer our brothers and sisters in Christ when moved by the Spirit.

Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor; (Romans 12:10 NASB)

Seek the Lord while He may be found; Call upon Him while He is near. (Isaiah 55:6 NASB)

Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. (Matthew 7:7 NASB)

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)
