Suspect Tosses Gun Out Car Window & Is Cited For Littering As DA Refuses Gun Charges

BlueLivesDontMatterToKimOgg

Our friends at Blue Lives Matter report in a 21 May 2019 article how Democrat District Attorney Kim Ogg (elected with the aid of George Soros) has refused to charge two suspects despite incriminating evidence on more than two separate badge cams.

Houston police charged an 18-year-old woman who threw a pistol out of a car window with “littering with gun” because the Harris County prosecutors refused to authorize weapons charges.

The incident occurred on Sunday when two Houston police officers on patrol initiated a traffic stop in the 7200-block of Tobruk Lane, according to an internal Houston Police Officers’ Union memo obtained by Blue Lives Matter.

As they were attempting to stop the vehicle, both officers witnessed the passenger throwing a pistol out of the car’s window.

Once they had the vehicle stopped, the officers detained the male 17-year-old driver and his 18-year-old female passenger and located the weapon where it had been tossed, according to the confidential memo.

The driver told the officers that he had given the gun to his passenger and told her to throw it out the window.

All of the admissions were captured on the officers’ bodycams so it should have been an easy slam dunk to charge both the driver and his passenger, but that isn’t how it works in Harris County.

Law enforcement officers in Harris County are required to contact the district attorney’s office for permission to charge before they actually arrest a suspect, Houston Police Officers’ Union Vice President Doug Griffith explained to Blue Lives Matter.

“We are the only county in the state that does this,” Griffith said. “We have to contact the DA’s office and ask permission to file the charge. It’s always been that way.”

What’s different now is that current Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg has quickly earned herself a reputation as a friend to the Houston criminals by refusing to charge anything but the most violent of crimes.

“In my 28 years with the Houston Police Department, this is the first district attorney who has actively refused charges on good hard criminals where we have body camera evidence,” Griffith told Blue Lives Matter. “It’s truly sickening that our officers put themselves in harm’s way and then turn around and have a DA refuse all charges.”

For those Democrats who have pushed David Hogg, Nikolas Cruz, or the murders at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida from your minds, please research to find that Mr. Cruz had over 50 run-ins with the police that were brushed under the rug due to Obama’s PROMISE program.

We do not need to repeat Obama’s failures again, thank you.

Democrats’ open borders have consequences again

  1. Illegal alien living in stolen truck robbed & killed elderly woman inside her southwest Houston home

MarcoCobos-EttaNugent.jpg

As shown by the 22 May 2019 Houston Chronicle article, a Houston woman lost her life due to Democrats’ refusal to recognize our crisis of illegal border crossing. From the account provided by the Chronicle, it sounds like the only sin that Etta Nugent committed was opening the door and being sick, old, and unable to fend off a bully from Mexico.

A teenager has been charged with capital murder in the death of a beloved southwest Houston grandmother who he is accused of stabbing after she was unable to help him fix his truck, according to police.

The broken-down vehicle across from Etta Nugent’s home and the 19-year-old living in it over the weekend had caught the attention of the tight-knit neighbors on tree-lined Neff Street next to the St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church soccer field.

Sunday was when Ninfa Palazzolo’s husband first saw him, she said. The suspect, identified by police as Marco Cobos, stood out among the mass of cars parked along the church property for a baptism ceremony.

“My husband saw him sitting in a truck with the car door open, and he saw him again yesterday,” said Palazzolo, who had lived near the Nugents for three decades.

Court records show Cobos was born in Mexico and homeless. The truck he had been sleeping in had been reported stolen, police said.

Cobos sought help from 75-year-old Nugent to fix his vehicle but she was unable to “because of her age,” police said. The 6-foot, 230-pound suspect then forced his way into her longtime home and stabbed her to death. Police did not say when Cobos broke into the home.

Another neighbor, Sharon Shanahan, said she last saw Nugent on Sunday.

Nugent had been home alone for most of May as her husband recovered from a medical procedure at a convalescent care facility, Shanahan said. She was supposed to visit her husband on Monday morning but never showed. Calls to her phone went unanswered.

Now, because some illegal alien demanded money to get a stolen truck fixed, a woman who once worked as a church secretary at a local Catholic church has died a painful death.

  1. Illegal alien murders as many as 12 elderly women

illegal-alien-murder-12-women

As shown by a 16 May 2019 Daily Caller article, an illegal alien from Kenya has killed elderly women 12 times. This illegal alien and former male nurse seems to have targeted elderly women by both robbing and killing them.

An illegal alien from Kenya has been charged in the deaths of 12 elderly women in Texas, and at least one major media outlet has so far ignored what could be one of the most prolific serial slayings in American history.

Billy Chemirmir, a 46-year-old former healthcare worker, had already been charged with capital murder in March 2018 in the death of Lu Thi Harris, 81, but was indicted on Tuesday for 11 additional deaths: five in Collin County and six more in Dallas County.

Court records show that Chemirmir, a citizen of Kenya living illegally in the United States, allegedly smothered his victims with a pillow and then robbed them, according to The Dallas Morning News.

After Chemirmir’s initial arrest, authorities told reporters their plans to review around 750 cases of unattended deaths of elderly women for links to Chemirmir, some of which had already been ruled as natural causes.

The Dallas Morning News reported:

He was indicted Tuesday in the deaths of six Dallas County women:

Phyllis Payne, 91, who died May 14, 2016, according to the indictment and her obituary

Phoebe Perry, 94, who died June 5, 2016, according to a family obituary

Norma French, 85, who died Oct. 8, 2016, according to the indictment and her obituary

Doris Gleason, 92, who died Oct. 29, 2016, according to her family and the indictment

Rosemary Curtis, 76, who died Jan. 19, 2018, according to her obituary

Mary Brooks, 87, who died Jan. 31, 2018, according to the indictment and her obituary

Details about the new Collin County indictments were not immediately available on Wednesday evening.

Additionally, Chemirmir is charged with attempted capital murder for allegedly trying to suffocate two other Collin County women. He also allegedly attacked a 93-year-old woman in 2017 at a Frisco assisted living facility.

One really sad part of this comes to us through Red State, who tells us that (although Nancy Pelosi and CNN are making up lies about the border and Trump) neither Pelosi or CNN can be bothered to say anything about this illegal alien mass murderer.

  1. Missing girl Salem Sabatka found safe after ‘heroes’ lead Texas police to her kidnapper

Democrat Blind Eyes toward Sexual Trafficking & Sexual Deviancy has Related Issues

SalemSabatka

According to even left-wing CNN, bad things can be averted when good people spring into action. Pastor and family friend Jeff King not only prayed, but also jumped into action (searching local park and hotel parking lots for the type of car used in the kidnapping of Salem.

Authorities rescued a Texas 8-year-old Sunday after a vigilant duo saw the Fort Worth Police Department’s description of the car suspected in her kidnapping and went hunting for it, police said.

Standing in front of the WoodSpring Suites in the suburb of Forest Hill, a beaming Buddy Calzada, spokesman for the Fort Worth police, told reporters that the pair, members of a local church, found the grey Ford Five Hundred in the hotel parking lot.

“As you can see, there is a smile on my face. I’m here to report that Salem has been found safe,” he said.

Police have charged Michael Webb, 51, with aggravated kidnapping, a first-degree felony. Webb is not related to the girl, Salem Sabatka, police said.

Salem was taking a walk with her mother Saturday night in Fort Worth when a car approached and a man snatched her, police said. Her mother tried to jump into the vehicle to save her daughter, but the man shoved her and sped away, video from a home doorbell shows.

Authorities issued an Amber Alert and posted photos of Salem and the Ford Five Hundred to social media.

The churchgoers saw the posts, found the vehicle and called it in to police. Officers determined in what room the car’s owner was staying, breached the door and found Salem, Calzada said.

“They’re our heroes tonight, I’ll tell you that,” he said of the churchgoers.

Jeff King has come forward as one of the heroes and told “Good Morning America” that he knew Salem’s dad, so when he learned the girl was missing, he touched base with friends who were already out looking for the youngster. King went to the crime scene where a Fort Worth detective told him he should be checking parks, apartments and hotels, he told the show.

“We got out here and tried to make a difference,” he said. “I went ahead and started looking at parks and then just kind of (was) told this one motel and we went there. And on the way back from that motel, this one was right next to us on the access road, so we just pulled in and yeah, that’s how it happened. It’s kind of crazy.”

One of the sad by-products of the border crisis is that boys, girls, and women become the sexual playthings of men who are willing to pay. Therefore, kidnappings like these seem to be on the rise in major cities.

Since Ms. Pelosi was so animated about the “Equality Act” and the supposed injustices there, I wonder if she could be bothered with protecting victims against kidnapping and sexual trafficking?

  1. Unrepentant ‘American Taliban’ Eligible for Early Release Thursday for ‘Good Behavior’

Never-Trump Democrat Judges and the Ilhan Omar-coddling party will produce another attack

American-Taliban-John-Walker-Lindh

As reported by a 21 May 2019 Breitbart article, the “American Taliban” who was captured by the US Army during the Obama administration will be released on Thursday (23 May 2019) due to his “good behavior” (although he killed US troops and has not renounced jihadism).

A U.S. federal prison is expected to release John Walker Lindh, an allegedly unrepentant jihadi known as the “American Taliban,” on Thursday, years before the end of his 20-year sentence reportedly due to good conduct and time served before his trial.

Lindh became the “American Taliban” after he joined the Afghan terrorist group and U.S. troops captured him in late 2001 when he was 20 years old.

In October 2001, the U.S. invaded Afghanistan to oust the Taliban regime for harboring al-Qaeda before the September 11 attacks. The war in Afghanistan continues, and the Taliban and al-Qaeda remain allies.

After taking into account good behavior and time served, Lindh will have spent 17 years in prison.

Fox News reports:

The Islamic militant who became known as the infamous “American Taliban” member is set to be released from a U.S. federal prison Thursday despite lawmakers’ concerns about the “security and safety implications” of freeing an unrepentant terrorist who officials say continues to “openly call for extremist violence.”

John Walker Lindh, who is currently behind bars in Terre Haute, Indiana, is set to be discharged May 23, several years before he would complete the prescribed 20-year prison sentence he received for joining and supporting the Taliban.

I lay the jihadism within America at the feet of Barack Obama for his tying of the hands of the military. This idiot and traitor should have been killed on the battlefield.

Were this a Christian that had taken up arms against the US (though I cannot see a scriptural basis for such a move) and were to remain unrepentant of their desire to kill Americans, I would say the same of them. First and foremost, this traitor needs to be given the punishment of traitors. We need to stop going soft on crime.

Department of the Interior sued by environmentalists

  1. Trump Administration Will ‘Shed Light’ On A Secretive Practice That Costs Taxpayers Millions Of Dollars

A 15 May 2019 Daily Caller article outlines Trump’s plans to “shed light” on Obama-era practices styled to benefit environmentalists willing to game the system.

The Interior Department will publicly list attorneys’ fees paid out, often to environmental activist groups, for legal settlements, according to a recent memo from Principal Deputy Solicitor Daniel Jorjani.

Jorjani’s memo states the Interior Department will develop a webpage within 30 days to publicly list details of legal settlements and cases, which the agency says is a big step in bringing sunshine to a non-transparent practice that the public is largely unaware is happening.

“This is a big deal that will shed light on the millions of dollars the DOI pays out every year in attorneys’ fees” under federal laws, an Interior Department official said in an email.

“This is your tax money and only by shining a light on this process can you decide if it is being put to good use,” the official said.

The memo was signed May 10, but made public Wednesday. Jorjani issued the memo in response to a 2018 order from Interior Secretary David Bernhardt while he served former Secretary Ryan Zinke’s number two. Zinke resigned earlier this year and has since been replaced by Bernhardt as head of the Interior Department.

Environmental groups have been particularly successful using “citizen suits” to sue the federal government into taking an action, then getting taxpayers to pay their attorneys’ fees. A 2016 Daily Caller News Foundation investigation found federal agencies paid out $49 million for 512 citizen suits filed under three major environmental laws during the Obama administration.

Nikki-Haley-Venezuela

  1. ‘Cowardice’: Nikki Haley Takes Aim At Ocasio-Cortez, Omar And Sanders Over Venezuela

In a second 15 May 2019 Daily Caller article, former UN ambassador Nikki Haley calls out the reluctance of fake socialists (you know, the ones who have million-dollar royalties and three homes or three-figure salaries and exclusive apartments that they don’t share with the masses) to face the reality of socialism in Venezuela.

Former Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley sharply criticized three prominent Democrats — Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders — for going soft on Venezuela’s socialist dictatorship.

“On the fringes of the left, celebrity politicians refuse to condemn [Venezuelan dictator Nicolas] Maduro. Worse, some have actually embraced him,” Haley wrote in a Monday post for Stand For America, her new political organization.

Haley ticked through the responses from Ocasio-Cortez, Omar and Sanders, taking shots at each one.

Ocasio-Cortez dodged when asked if Maduro was a legitimate ruler. “A simple ‘no’ would have sufficed,” commented Haley.

Considering the fact that AOC does not understand the difference between socialism and capitalism (as demonstrated by the following video), it shouldn’t be hard to convince thinking liberals to consider the benefits of the system that has lifted more people from poverty worldwide.

When you compare Bernie Sander’s “Democrat(ic) Socialism” to the socialism that wrecked Venezuela, you’ll find mirror copies shared by Bernie and Venezuela. Both Bernie and Venezuela went for government-owned banking. Both Bernie and Venezuela went for universal healthcare. Most importantly, both Bernie Sanders and the socialists of Venezuela would rather that the people not be able to defend themselves with guns.

In retrospect, that did not work out very well for the people of Venezuela.

us-weekly-jobless-claims-fall-more-than-expected

  1. Jobless claims fall more than expected

A 15 May 2019 Reuters article points out how economic factors have worked in favor of anyone with a business. Therefore, this works well for non-socialists (non-Democrats).

The number of Americans filing applications for unemployment benefits fell more than expected last week, pointing to sustained labor market strength that should underpin the economy as growth slows.

Initial claims for state unemployment benefits dropped 16,000 to a seasonally adjusted 212,000 for the week ended May 11, the Labor Department said on Thursday. Data for the prior week was unrevised.

Claims had been stuck at higher levels for three straight weeks, reflecting difficulties stripping out seasonal fluctuations from the data around moving holidays like Easter, Passover and school spring breaks.

Economists polled by Reuters had forecast claims would fall to 220,000 in the latest week. The Labor Department said no states were estimated last week.

The four-week moving average of initial claims, considered a better measure of labor market trends as it irons out week-to-week volatility, rose 4,750 to 225,000 last week.

The labor market is strong, with the unemployment rate near a 50-year low of 3.6%. The robust job market is supporting the economy as the boost from the White House’s $1.5 trillion tax cut package fades and President Donald Trump’s escalating trade war with China disrupts supply chains at factories, which are already struggling with an inventory bloat that has cut production.

Reading the above Reuters article, you can tell that the author wants America to fail so that Republicans (and the evil business community that supports them) will fail. Oddly, nothing but a point of view separates the author from those he hates. Similarly, I have seen leftist Antifa supporters bludgeoning young women and old men over their having attended a Trump rally. Again, nothing but a disagreement on whether a socialist government or a free people would best govern America separates the attackers from the victims.

In contrast, I have worked for ideologies to fail, but not people. In s recent post, I advocated against the passage of the Equality Act because I am certain that it will lead to the subjugation of my religious rights. However, in other posts, I have stood against Islamists that would kill gays. That is to say, I have stood by those in the “Gay Agenda,” because I see life as sacred, all people as sinners, and the only unforgivable sin as the rejection of Christ.

However, I also cannot stand by while Christians continually find themselves abused by gay groups who had benefited from the Christians’ action. Additionally, I cannot ignore the harshness and inhumanity of a gay system that time and time again has proven itself willing to subjugate those who disagree on points of conscience.

  1. Liberals have started to lose their composure due to fear of losing the battles they forced on the rest of America

Unborn Babies Are Not Human? CNN Debate Leads to Stunning Declaration: ‘That Is Not a Human Being’

A 10 May 2019 Christian Broadcasting Network article shows how liberals have been taken so aback by the possibility that Roe versus Wade might be returned to the states. As reported, a CNN panel consisting of former Senator Santorum, Chris Cuomo, and talking head Christine Quinn produced a surprising quote.

A CNN interview this week raised some powerful questions about the humanity of the unborn, taking the abortion debate straight to the most central question. But the arguments made by CNN’s host and contributor are stunning.

Host Chris Cuomo took the pro-abortion side as he questioned former US Senator Rick Santorum and CNN political contributor Christine Quinn.

They spoke about states that are passing restrictive abortion laws like Georgia’s hearbeat law, with Cuomo and Quinn arguing that a decision by five people on the Supreme Court is more valid than the rights of states or the beliefs of millions of Americans.

That turned into a heated exchange over when life begins before Quinn said something a lot of people find shocking.

The pro-life Santorum had challenged Cuomo and Quinn about their belief that the unborn baby inside a woman’s womb is not a human.

“Do you guys realize a baby DIES in an abortion? Are you ignoring that fact. This is a human life,” Santorum says.

“It’s not a legal fact,” Cuomo inserts.

“Do you disagree that at the moment of concept that child is human and alive? Is it biologically a human life?” Santorum says. Cuomo says the issue should only be about “viability,” to which Santorum replies, “You guys talk about being the party of science, that is so a-science.”

Then he raised the issue of humans being treated as property in a clear reference to the wrong-headed arguments that had been used by pro-slavery forces in the 1800’s. “That’s a unique human being inside that woman. So is it the property of a woman, that you can do whatever you want with it?”

Christine Quinn, a board member of the National Institute of Reproductive Health, said, “When a woman gets pregnant, that is not a human being inside of her. It’s part of her body, and this is about a woman having full agency and control over her body and making decisions about her body and what is part of her body with medical professionals.”

When liberals start claiming that babies in utero are not human, they are losing their grip with reality. Nobody thinks that you will crack an eagle egg and get a chicken or a wolf, but (somehow) liberals want us to believe that there is an immaculate conception each time a woman decides to keep her child. Until then, according to Christine Quinn, no human is human.

As shown by a 23 March 2019 Breitbart article, it seems that even street artists have had enough of Representative Omar’s anti-Semitic rants.

IlhanomarPolitical street artist Sabo put up a number of signs criticizing anti-Semitic comments from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) in the Woodland Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles amid the freshman lawmaker’s appearance in town for a speech.

Ilhan Omar is scheduled to speak at a fundraiser for the controversial Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in Los Angeles Saturday. Counter-events have been organized against herIlhanOmardoor_hangers appearance.

“CAIR-LA is honored to have Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) as the featured speaker for the 4th Annual Valley Banquet,” the group’s website states.

“Born in Somalia, Ilhan and her family fled the country’s civil war when she was 8 years old. They lived in a refugee camp in Kenya for four years before coming to the United States, eventually settling in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis in 1997.”

Persecuted Christian Asia Bibi Arrives in Canada After Leaving Pakistan

Breitbart informs us through an 8 May 2019 article that Asia Bibi has escaped the death threat of her country for the asylum of Canada.

Asia Bibi, a Pakistani Christian woman who spent eight years on death row for blasphemy against Islam before she was freed last year, is now safely in Canada and reunited with her family, her lawyer has said.

“It is a big day,” Saiful Malook told the Guardian. “Asia Bibi has left Pakistan and reached Canada. She has reunited with her family. Justice has been dispensed.”

Pakistani TV channels Geo and ARY, citing unidentified sources, also reported Bibi had left the country.

Roman Catholic Bibi was acquitted of her religious crime last year but has since faced death threats in Pakistan and was offered asylum by multiple countries including Italy, the Netherlands, and Canada. The latter has finally provided her with safe haven.

The British government turned her away, allegedly to appease “certain sections of the community” at home and Islamist terrorists who might be inclined to attack British embassies abroad.

Everyone, please thank Canada for their help in this matter of providing asylum to Christians.

European Churches: Vandalized, Defecated On, and Torched “Every Day”

EuropeanChurchesDesecrated

In a 14 April 2019 article by the Gatestone Institute, we find how Europe’s churches have seen much harm recently.

Countless churches throughout Western Europe are being vandalized, defecated on, and torched.

In France, two churches are desecrated every day on average. According to PI-News, a German news site, 1,063 attacks on Christian churches or symbols (crucifixes, icons, statues) were registered in France in 2018. This represents a 17% increase compared to the previous year (2017), when 878 attacks were registered — meaning that such attacks are only going from bad to worse.

Among some of the recent desecrations in France, the following took place in just February and March:

  • Vandals plundered Notre-Dame des Enfants Church in Nîmes and used human excrement to draw a cross there; consecrated bread was found thrown outside among garbage.
  • The Saint-Nicolas Church in Houilles was vandalized on three separate occasions in February; a 19th century statue of the Virgin Mary, regarded as “
    irreparable
    ,” was “completely pulverized,” said a clergyman; and a hanging cross was thrown to the floor.
  • Vandals desecrated and smashed crosses and statues at Saint-Alain Cathedral in Lavaur, and mangled the arms of a statue of a crucified Christ in a mocking manner. In addition, an altar cloth was burned.
  • Arsonists torched the Church of St. Sulpice in Paris soon after midday mass on Sunday, March 17.

Similar reports are coming out of Germany. Four separate churches were vandalized and/or torched in March alone. “In this country,” PI-News explained, “there is a creeping war against everything that symbolizes Christianity: attacks on mountain-summit crosses, on sacred statues by the wayside, on churches… and recently also on cemeteries.”

Shep Smith shuts down French commentator suggesting Notre Dame fire wasn’t an accident

shepsmith

A 15 April 2019 article at The Hill points out a massive failing of Shepherd Smith on his Fox News show.

Fox News anchor Shepard Smith abruptly cut off an interview on Monday with a French commentator floating conspiracy theories about the fire burning at Notre Dame.

Smith’s guest was French media analyst and former elected official Philippe Karsenty, who said the blaze burning at the Parisian landmark was “like a 9/11.”

“It’s like a 9/11. It’s a French 9/11. It’s a big shock,” Karsenty said. “The church was there for more than 850 years. Even the Nazis didn’t dare to destroy it.”

He said there have been churches “desecrated each and every week in France, all over France” in recent years.

“So, of course, you will hear the story of the political correctness which will tell you it’s probably an accident,” Karsenty said before Smith interrupted.

“Sir, sir, sir, we’re not going to speculate here of the cause of something which we don’t know,” Smith said. “If you have observations or you know something, we would love to hear it.”

Karsenty said that he was warning viewers that they “need to be ready” before Smith cut his guest off again.

“No, sir, we’re not doing that here, not now, not on my watch,” Smith said before ending the interview with Karsenty.

Muslim Militants Slay Missionary Priest in Burkina Faso

SpanishPriestKilledInBurkinaFaso
A 17 February 2019 Breitbart article describes the attack on a missionary priest.

A group of Islamic terrorists opened fire on a customs post in southern Burkina Faso Friday, slaying a missionary priest as well as four customs officials, Vatican News reported Saturday.

Father Antonio César Fernandez Fernandez, a Spanish priest of the Salesian order, had been working as a missionary in Africa for the last 37 years and helped to found the first Salesian community in Togo in 1982.

The three men were returning from Lome, Togo, where they had participated in the first session of the provincial chapter of the Salesians of Francophone West Africa.

Clashes between security forces and some jihadist groups have increased in recent months in Burkina Faso, but this is the first attack in this region of the country. Mali and Niger have been facing similar attacks for several years.

Burkina Faso is several hundred miles from Nigeria, where jihadists from the Boko Haram terror group have carried out deadly attacks for the past ten years. Boko Haram has reportedly killed some 30,000 people and forced another two million to flee their homes since the insurgency began in 2009.

300 Nigerian Christians Killed by Muslim Attackers

72 Christians Supernaturally saved from a Firing Squad

The Right Scoop reports 500 Christians killed by Islamic extremists.

In a story that occurred concurrently with the Christchurch attack, at least 300 Christians were killed by 2 Islamic groups according to a report by the Christian Broadcasting Network in mid-March.

The news out of Nigeria is getting progressively worse as it is being reported that more than 300 people were killed in at least seven predominantly Christian villages across Nigeria in February and March this year, according to multiple sources that monitor persecution of Christians.

“Since February 10, there have been at least 270 people killed in Kaduna State alone,” International Christian Concern confirms. “It has been reported that at least 70 Christians have been killed during a 10-week span at the beginning of 2019 across the other Middle Belt states.”

In one early morning attack on the village of Karamai on Feb. 14, sources said 41 people died after 300 gunmen swarmed the village shouting “Allahu Akbar!” as they fired their weapons and ransacked people’s homes, according to Barnabas Fund. It was reported almost all of those killed were women and children along with a few senior residents who were unable to run away.

‘Everything is burning’: Notre Dame cathedral in Paris on fire

The Russian Times reported in a 15 April 2019 article that Notre Dame was burning.

A fire at the iconic Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France has destroyed most of the roof and collapsed the church’s central spire. Eyewitness videos show smoke and fire engulfing the jewel of Gothic architecture.

The blaze broke out in the scaffolding around the spire on Monday afternoon, Paris firefighters confirmed, adding that a major operation to tackle the fire is underway.

Everything is burning. There won’t be anything left of the wood frame, which dates to the XIX century on one side and the XII century on the other,” Notre Dame spokesman Andre Finot told French media. “We’ll have to see if the [stone] vault, which protects the cathedral, will be touched or not.”

I hope that there is definitive proof that this was not the work of an Islamist. However, to declare that the fire resulted from an accident while the firefighters are still putting the fire out is premature.

Lesbian Feminist Testifies Against the ‘Equality Act’

A 2 April 2019 National Review article points to the words of lesbian feminist Julia Beck as she points out many of the things that Christians have regarding the Equality Act. Specifically, she points out many instances where the Equality Act will allow the blurring of lines that protect women.

On Tuesday Julia Beck testified against the Equality Act (H.R. 5) before the House Judiciary Committee. Beck is a lesbian who was booted out of the Baltimore LGBT Commission for describing a male transgender rapist as a male and saying that men can’t be lesbians.

Advocates of the Equality Act characterize it as anti-discrimination for LGBT people and a much-needed extension of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Nearly 300 Democrats (and a few Republicans) support the bill. It is scheduled for hearings later this spring, and a vote this summer. It will likely pass the House, if not yet the Senate.

In her testimony, Beck said the law would mean that,

male rapists will go to women’s prisons and likely assault female inmates as has already happened in the U.K.; female survivors of rape will be unable to contest male presence in women’s shelters; men will dominate women’s sports — girls who would have taken first place will be denied scholastic opportunity; women who use male pronouns to talk about men may be arrested, fined, and banned from social media platforms; girls will stay home from school when they have their periods to avoid harassment by boys in mixed-space toilets; girls and women will no longer have a right to ask for female medical staff or intimate care providers, including elderly or disabled women who are at serious risk of sexual abuse; female security officers will no longer have the right to refuse to perform pat-downs or intimate searches of males who say they’re female and women undergoing security checks will no longer have the right to refuse having those security checks being performed by men claiming a feminine identity.

She pointed out that “everything I just listed is already happening, and it’s only going to get worse if gender identity is recognized in federal law.” And added, “I urge my fellow Democrats to wake up. Please acknowledge biological reality.”

Now that a recognized leader in the lesbian community has said the same thing that Christians (such as Tim Wildmon of the American Family Association) has been saying, maybe more people in government will start to take note.

Then again, maybe they will just sideline Ms. Beck just like they have sidelined Christians.

Still, with that said, what about the Christians who want to live out their faith despite aggressive attacks from liberal activists? What about Jack Phillips and his Masterpiece Cakeshop? What about the former owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa? What about Barronelle Stutzman?

Rep. Nadler says that we cannot hide behind religion when discriminating against transgenders and homosexuals. Can this question be turned around? Have lesbians used their power with liberal states to persecute Christians? Is there equal representation under the law?

Houston Library continues program after registered sex offender found in Drag Queen Storytime

houston-storytime-drag-suspect

The Houston Chronicle tells of Alberto Garza in a 17 March 2010 article, a transgender who was convicted of abusing an 8-year-old boy has now been found participating in the Houston Public Library’s program that has transgenders reading to preschoolers. What can go wrong there?

Houston Public Library officials apologized Friday for failing to conduct a background check on a registered sex offender who read books to children at an event hosted by drag queens.

Albert Garza, a 32-year-old registered sex offender, participated in the program under the name Tatiana Mala-Niña, according to the conservative anti-LGBTQ group, MassResistance.

Library officials acknowledged in a statement Friday that Garza has “a criminal background that should have prevented him from participating” in the Drag Queen Storytime program, in which drag queens read books at the Freed-Montrose library.

Department of Public Safety records show Garza was convicted of aggravated sexual assault of an 8-year-old child in 2009, for which he received five years of probation and community supervision.

Mala-Niña did not respond to attempts Saturday to confirm her apparent criminal background.

“We assure you that this participant will not be involved in any future HPL programs,” the library’s statement reads. “…We deeply regret this oversight and the concern this may cause our customers. We realize this is a serious matter.”

Although many citizens of Houston’s Montrose would not be surprised to find that a transvestite who was reading to children at the public library was a registered sex offender, this is still a breach of the public trust. The sad thing is that it was not the Houston Public Library’s last breach of trust under this program.

Second Child Sex Offender Unmasked at Drag Queen Story Time, Houston Activists Say

Sex-Offender-Drag-Queen_sized-770x415xc

According to a 5 April 2019 article on PJ Media, a second child abuser discovered within the Houston Public Library Drag Queen program.

On Thursday, activist parents with MassResistance unmasked another child sex offender who greeted children at Drag Queen Story Time. According to local MassResistance leader Tracy Shannon, a drag performer with many aliases has sexually assaulted children and publicly recounted his history as a transgender dominatrix and prostitute for hire. His name has been redacted here because he was allegedly convicted for sexual assault against children at age 16, so his record has been sealed.

“We have another big reveal today at our press conference which will take place at 2 PM at the Freed Montrose Library,” Shannon announced in an email. “Due to this individual using multiple aliases and having moved around a lot it was hard to nail down his identity but we finally connected the dots. We found his name a few days ago but trying to find some affirmation and photos was like looking for a needle in a haystack of social media postings.”

“Once we affirmed the identity we ran background checks and found the record. We will reveal all at 2 PM Central time at our press conference,” she added. She also excoriated the Houston Public Library (HPL) system for allowing child sex offenders to greet children.

At the conference, “MassResistance will demand an audit of the entire HPL background checks vs volunteer applications to see how many have experienced an ‘oversight’ and how many sex offenders have been allowed to participate in children’s programming at the libraries in Houston. We will also be demanding a city ordinance that requires background checks for all city-sanctioned programs for children when we have our press conference.”

Shannon sent PJ Media the research document outlining how MassResistance uncovered this second alleged sex offender.

She connected the man to an article at About Online recalling experiences in “sex work” as a “professional dominatrix.” At the beginning, the anonymous author admitted, “I had tried for so many years to alleviate my depression and dysphoria through random sex, I had lost track of how many partners I’ve had.” This eased the transition from “sex work” to becoming a transgender prostitute and porn actor.

Hopefully, this will be the last breach of trust for the Houston Public Library for a while.

We must protect children and others who are incapable of protecting themselves. Allowing preditors, whether in the library or in the church, does not cut it. We need to either stay with them or know those in whom we trust our children.

From Baylor to Yale, Free Speech for Christians Is Dying, and Ted Cruz Wants Some Answers

As made evident in a 5 April 2019 Christian Broadcasting Network article, even liberals on Christian campuses are threatened by Christian speakers coming with messages that other crowds of Christians want to hear.

Freedom of speech is under fire now possibly more than ever on college campuses as this fundamental American freedom is being stripped from students, professors, and even public speakers.

Examples of threats to free speech continue to roll in across the nation, especially for Christians and conservatives and their biblical stand on issues.

Even at a Christian university in the Bible belt, free speech is at risk. Some at Baylor University in Texas are trying to stop Matt Walsh, a Christian author and blogger, from speaking on campus.

Walsh was invited by Baylor’s Young Americans for Freedom chapter to give a speech titled, “The War on Reality: Why the Left Has Set out to Redefine Life, Gender, and Marriage.”

It didn’t sit well with some students and so they circulated a petition to stop him from speaking on the topic from a biblical perspective.

The petition accuses Walsh of spreading “harmful hate speech.” Some students even vandalized posters advertising the event.

Walsh took to Twitter saying he simply wants to express a point of view, is trying to have a good sense of humor about the protest, and is asking students to try to have a rational dialogue with him.

Organizers say the event, scheduled for April 9, is now sold out.

A second recent case involves Yale Law School saying students who work for Christian groups supporting biblical teaching on marriage being between one man and one woman will no longer receive school financial support.

The controversy erupted when an attorney with Alliance Defending Freedom was invited to speak on campus about Christian baker Jack Phillips who, for religious reasons, declined to make a wedding cake for a gay couple.

A number of Yale’s liberal groups, including the LGBTQ advocacy group the “Outlaws” protested the speech and the school’s financial help to conservative students.

Yale responded by pulling the funding for students who follow their biblical beliefs.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) is now involved. He sent a letter to the dean of the Yale Law School saying its new policy is “transparently discriminatory” and intended to “blacklist Christian organizations.” Cruz has threatened legal action.

It would seem that a number of liberals have flocked to the private institutions founded by religious groups (like Baylor, which is currently at least partially funded by the Southern Baptist Convention). Therefore, it seems that Christians have been tolerant of liberals who moved into their halls of learning. However, it also seems that those same liberals cannot be tolerant of Christians.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Melts Down over Criticism of Fake Accent

This Breitbart article highlights both the extremes of pandering that the Democrats have fallen to and the degree of pain they feel upon being called out for that pandering.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) responded to criticism for her patronizing use of a fake accent in front of a black audience in the usual manner — crybabying.

The not-terribly-bright socialist was caught on video Friday patronizing the mostly black audience with a fake southern drawl at Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network conference.

The humiliating video quickly made the rounds on social media, earning the criticism and ridicule it deserved.

The video is as shocking as it is excruciating. All of a sudden, the Westchester socialist, who is famous for her Jerry the Mouse voice, starts talking like a black preacher.

“This is what organizing looks like. This is what building power looks like,” Ocasio-Crazy said with her affected cadence. “This is what changing the country looks like. It’s when we choose to show up and occupy the room and talk about the things that matter most, talking about our future.”

“Ain’t nothing wrong with that. There’s nothing wrong with working retail, folding clothes for other people to buy,” she continued. “There is nothing wrong with preparing the food that your neighbors will eat. There is nothing wrong with driving the buses that take your family to work”:

The moment is reminiscent of two-time presidential loser Hillary “Hot Sauce” Clinton’s similar attempt to condescend to a predominantly black audience with her “Ain’t No Ways Tired” remarks in 2007:

The Swedish Church Creates LGBTQ View of the Bible for Children, Identifies Jesus as ‘Queer’

SwedishChurch&Sexuality

One 5 April 2019 Christian Broadcasting Network article shows that one diocese of the Church of Sweden has published a guide stating that Christ was homosexual.

The Diocese of Västerås, a division of the Church of Sweden, is now giving away an LGBTQ guide for “Christian queer kids.” Bible-believing Christians may be stunned to hear that this extreme guide describes Jesus as “queer” and Joseph as transvestite.

No, this isn’t just some radical college course about the Bible. This is coming from the actual Church of Sweden.

The church, which identifies as Protestant, has created what it calls a “survival guide” for LGBTQ youth. A Swedish news site, Nya DagBladet, states the church’s guide contains definitions and concepts, a bit about the Bible and LGBTQ, as well as Bible stories that it claims are related to LGBTQ people.

The guide goes on to contradict Scripture by stating the Bible is actually not against homosexuality, implying scriptures dealing with it are actually about exploitation or rape. Click Here to see what the Bible actually says about homosexuality.

‘Hate-Filled, Anti-Christian, Anti-Conservative Organization’: Why the SPLC Has Been Given an ‘F’ by Charity Watch

SPLC-2

A 4 April 2019 article at the Christian Broadcasting Network points out the vehemence of the attacks by the SPLC.

More than 25 Christian and conservative leaders have signed a letter to the CEO’s of Facebook, Twitter, Google and Amazon, urging them to end any working relationships with the Southern Poverty Law Center.

The SPLC has notoriously listed Christian and conservative groups as hate groups.

“It is now clear that the SPLC has proven to be a hate-filled, anti-Christian, anti-conservative organization and nothing more than a weapon of the radical Left, whose goal is to bully people into compliance with their ideology,” the letter states. “Fail to comply with their demands, and you will be labeled as a hate group or an extremist.”

The Family Research Council is one group the SPLC has put in that hate group category for its Biblical beliefs and defense of traditional marriage. Others like the Alliance Defending Freedom and Prager University have also been targeted.

And this letter may be just the beginning of the SPLC’s worries. Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) is calling on the IRS to investigate the non-profit and review its tax exempt status.

“They’ve really become kind of a hate group themselves,” Cotton told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson. “Serial repeated defamation against what you see as a political opponent is not a tax exempt purpose.”

The SPLC has a reported $500 million in assets with a good chunk of that in offshore accounts.

When you also consider that the leadership of the SPLC left under the cloud of mistreatment, sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and racism, you would not know it from the virtual silence among the mainstream media outlets.

Additionally, you would not know that the current leader of the SPLC (Tina Tchen) has close ties to the Obama administration — including Greg Craig — and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation case). What do we here about this? Do we even hear crickets out of the media?

 

14 times Democrats did their best to alienate voters

#1: Connecticut woman says then-Vice President Joe Biden touched her inappropriately at a Greenwich fundraiser in 2009

The Hartford Courant reports in a 2 April 2019 article how a Connecticut woman has charged Joe Biden with unwanted advances.

A Connecticut woman says Joe Biden touched her inappropriately and rubbed noses with her during a 2009 political fundraiser in Greenwich when he was vice president, drawing further scrutiny to the Democrat and his history of unwanted contact with women as he ponders a presidential run.

“It wasn’t sexual, but he did grab me by the head,” Amy Lappos told The Courant Monday. “He put his hand around my neck and pulled me in to rub noses with me. When he was pulling me in, I thought he was going to kiss me on the mouth.”

Lappos posted about the alleged incident on the Facebook page of Connecticut Women in Politics Sunday in response to a similar account by former Nevada legislator Lucy Flores, which comes as Biden is considering a 2020 run for president. Flores accused Biden of kissing her on the back of her head in 2014, when she was a candidate for lieutenant governor.

Lappos, 43, who is now a freelance worker with nonprofit agencies, said she felt extremely uncomfortable when Biden approached her at the 2009 fundraiser for U.S. Rep. Jim Himes, D-4th, where she was volunteering. At the time, Lappos was a congressional aide to Himes, who she said was not in the room when the incident took place.

“I never filed a complaint, to be honest, because he was the vice president. I was a nobody,” Lappos said. “There’s absolutely a line of decency. There’s a line of respect. Crossing that line is not grandfatherly. It’s not cultural. It’s not affection. It’s sexism or misogyny.”

#2: MeToo Movement Strikes Again: Even MORE Women Accuse Biden of Sexual Harassment

A 2 April 2019 article on Townhall tells us about more women who have reportedly come forward with tales of impropriety against Joe Biden.

Two more women stepped forward on Tuesday and accused former Vice President Joe Biden (D) of sexual harassment. The women, Caitlyn Caruso and D. J. Hill, told their stories to The New York Times.

Here’s what took place, according to The Hill:

Caruso, 22, told the Times that Biden rested his hand on her thigh even as she attempted to show her discomfort by squirming in her seat during a sexual assault event at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas. Caruso, who was 19 at the time, added that Biden hugged her “just a little bit too long.”

She told the newspaper that the interaction was uncomfortable because she had just discussed a time she was sexually assaulted and expected Biden to be aware of physical boundaries.

“It doesn’t even really cross your mind that such a person would dare perpetuate harm like that,” she told the paper. “These are supposed to be people you can trust.”

Hill, 59, told the Times that while taking a photograph with Biden in 2012, the then-vice president placed his hand on her shoulder and began moving it down her back, something she said made her “very uncomfortable.”

“Only he knows his intent,” she added.

As pointed out by a 6 April 2019 on SFGate, it seeems that Democrats are intent on doubling down on identity politics. In this case, Pete Buttigieg is counting on riding the label of “gay” into the White House.

Pete Buttigieg sat in the back of a black SUV with a couple of staffers, sipping a still-steeping cup of tea to ease the fatigue from his suddenly frenetic schedule, when he looked out the window and interrupted himself.

“Man,” said Buttigieg, taking in the rainbow-hued signs and colorfully dressed passersby that signaled he had entered West Hollywood, Los Angeles’ de facto gay neighborhood. “It got real gay real quick out there.”

Few Democratic presidential candidates could assess their surroundings so bluntly without seeming painfully out of line. But Buttigieg is not like any other Democratic presidential candidate – in part, if not exclusively, because he is gay.

Still, Democrats are going to have to provide more of a reason for voter support than “Vote for me, I’m gay.”

#4: AOC – You Guys, They Amended the Constitution to Stop FDR From Running Again, or Something

As we see in a 1 April 2019 article on Townhall, AOC has uttered another set of indefensible statements about FDR.

According to her supporters, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a singular obsession of the right-wing media. This framing ignores the indisputable reality that she’s a creation of the mainstream and left-wing media, heralded and celebrated as the fresh face of a new generation of hard-charging progressives. She’s also succeeding in yanking her party leftward, as multiple presidential candidates have endorsed her fanatical and fanciful “green new deal” legislation — although they all scurried behind a wall of “present” votes when the moment to support the resolution actually arrived.

Her latest media showcase occurred on MSNBC late last week, during with the freshman Congresswoman made all sorts of attention-grabbing assertions and comparisons — including advancing the notion that “environmental justice” must only be achieved alongside “economic justice,” which certainly won’t hlep dispel many skeptics’ suspicion that programs like the green new deal are less about addressing an urgent crisis, and more about redistributing wealth and amassing governmental control. Among other topics, she explained that the Tea Party is different than her movement because unlike those xenophobic white supremacists, she doesn’t call her opponents names:

Seems legit, and duly noted. She went on to make the following claim about the success of aggressive statism in American politics. FDR’s vast expansion of government was so popular, she averred, that opponents had to amend the constitution to prevent him from winning again:

Her point is correct, except for the fact that (a) President Roosevelt (who ignored the Washington-set precedent of serving a maximum of two consecutive terms) had been dead for roughly two years when the 22nd Amendment was passed by overwhelming and bipartisan Congressional majorities, and approximately six years by the time it was ratified by the states and implemented, and (b) even if it had been directed at FDR while he were still in office, the amendment only applied to future presidents. It’s also worth noting that Republican majorities were only able to introduce this ultimately-successful amendment because they’d won sweeping landslide victories in the 1946 midterm elections, winning control of both legislative chambers. Also, at least two Republican presidents opposed the amendment, with Ronald Reagan going so far as to urge its repeal. Some dutiful media acolytes are performing their own version of Trumpist ‘translations’ in order to ostensibly demonstrate how AOC was actually kind of correct, if you ignore the actual substance of her core claim.

According to one 6 April 2019 Fox News article, even members of the socialist branch of the Democrat party have had enough of the idiocy that comes out of AOC.

Hours before Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called for an “agenda of reparations” at an Al Sharpton-sponsored event in New York on Friday, she was slammed as “financially illiterate” at the same conference for killing the Amazon deal with the state.

Ocasio-Cortez spoke to the crowd at the National Action Network, saying her Green New Deal will consider reparations to black Americans for slavery in addition to the radical overhaul of the economy in a bid to combat climate change.

But at the same conference, hours before Ocasio-Cortez’s speech, an investor ripped those who opposed the Amazon deal with the state that would have generated billions in tax revenue and 25,000 jobs.

“The people campaigning against the Amazon campus are financially illiterate,” said Tracy Maitland, president and chief investment officer of Advent Capital Management during a panel discussion the Black Economic Agenda, according to the New York Post.

According to a 19 March 2019 Fox News article, it seems that a previous group has decided that AOC is a persona non grata.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., reportedly has been de-listed from the board of left-wing activist group Justice Democrats, following legal and ethical questions about her affiliation with the group.

The Daily Caller reported that Ocasio-Cortez, along with chief of staff and former campaign chair Saikat Chakrabarti, have been removed from the board of the political action committee after previously holding “legal control over the entity” in late 2017 and early 2018.

The Daily Caller had reported earlier this month on Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti’s role with the PAC, noting that the congresswoman never disclosed to the Federal Election Commission that they “controlled the PAC while it was simultaneously supporting her primary campaign.” Former FEC officials said at the time this could represent violations of campaign finance law.

Just when good news seems sparce, Breitbart News reports in a 17 March 2019 article how AOC didn’t receive the news of her falling popularity very well.

Earlier this week, Breitbart News reported on Ocasio-Crazy’s awful polling numbers as reported by Gallup. There is just no question that as her national profile has exploded, primarily through gushing coverage from the establishment media, it has backfired bigtime with the public.

The more people know about Ocasio-Crazy, even though the media’s Vaseline-smeared filter, the less they like her.

Although she is much better known than almost all of her counterparts in congress, better known than even Chief Justice John Roberts, a plurality of 41 percent view her unfavorably, a leap of 15 points since September.

Meanwhile, her favorable rating has only jumped seven points, from 24 to 31 percent.

Right now, Ocasio-Crazy is underwater with the public by double digits, by ten full points.

The latest Gallup poll reveals that the public’s opinion of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has plummeted, as the socialist Democrat’s ignorance on issues and shocking ultra-left stances continue to make more and more Americans fearful about the potential damage she can do in Washington.

Before the young “rock star” candidate rocked the world by defeating 10-term incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.) at the ballot box last November, American negativity toward the self-proclaimed socialist was relatively low, but after her numerous controversial gaffs and oblivious comments exposing her inexperience and dangerous worldview, more Americans are becoming wary about the destructive path on which the left-leaning representative could lead America.

Since Americans were surveyed in early September, a shocking upward shift in their negative opinion toward AOC has been discovered, as Gallup’s new poll indicates that the millennial Democrat is scaring off many once-impressed left-leaning sympathizers.

Let’s just hope she keeps it up.

#10: Obama acolyte warns of the unpopularity of socialism

#10: Famously ruthless Dem warns about going Red

8-rahm-emanuel-upset-AP-640x480

In a 15 March 2019 OneNewsNow article, news of the unpopularity of socialism comes to light (at least on other-than-main-stream press).

A prominent Democrat is warning his party that Donald Trump will exploit their far-left ideas in 2020, and a political analyst says it’s good advice that won’t be heeded.

“Rahm Emanuel warns Democrats in 2020 not to play to ‘socialist’ type,” a USA Today headline states to begin a March 21 story.

Emanuel, the outgoing Chicago mayor, wrote an op-ed for The Atlantic warning fellow Democrats that they are serving up “slow pitches over the plate” to Trump, and he said the Republican president will peel away Democrats over proposals such as the Green New Deal and Medicare for All.

Emanuel, a Bill Clinton advisor who later served as Barack Obama’s chief of staff, is not appealing to Democrats out of niceness: he is known as a ruthless political player who once sent a mob-like dead fish to a pollster he didn’t like, and rattled off a list of political “enemies” as he stabbed a steak knife into a table.

A 28 January 2019 Daily Caller article points to the anti-Semitic ties of Rashida Tlaib.

Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s ties to anti-Semitism run deeper than previously known, a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation found.

Tlaib, part of a heralded freshman class of House Democrats, has already come under scrutiny over her positions on Israel and ties to fringe figures. But TheDCNF’s investigation uncovered additional ties to anti-Semitism.

Tlaib is a member of the Facebook group “Palestinian American Congress,” where members often demonize Jews. The group’s founder, Palestinian activist Maher Abdel-qader, was a key fundraiser for Tlaib and organized campaign events for her around the country.

In January 2018, Abdel-qader shared an anti-Semitic video that claimed Jews aren’t actually Jewish, and invented their historical claim to Israel and secretly control the media.

The video, which described Jews as “satanic,” also questioned whether 6 million Jews actually died in the Holocaust.

“Research the truth about the Holocaust, and you’ll definitely start to question what you thought you knew,” the video’s narrator says.

#12: Ilhan Omar ignites new anti-Semitism controversy with comments on AIPAC

According to a 10 February 2019 article in Politico, Ilhan Omar decides to use anti-Semitic language to associate Jews and Republicans (when, oddly, many Jews are Democrats).

Freshman Minnesota Democrat Ilhan Omar ignited a new controversy on Sunday night when she suggested GOP support for Israel is driven by campaign donations from a prominent pro-Israel group.

Omar singled out AIPAC, one of the most influential lobbying groups in Washington, as the source of those donations.

Omar’s comments touched upon a long-running, and particularly ugly, thread of the anti-Semitic movement — that Jewish money fuels backing for Israel in the United States and elsewhere. A freshman Democrat, Max Rose of New York, said, “Congresswoman Omar’s statements are deeply hurtful to Jews, including myself.”

And the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee is a non-profit that doesn’t donate directly to candidates. AIPAC, however, does relentlessly push a pro-Israeli message on Capitol Hill and inside the executive branch, and its members donate to pro-Israel lawmakers and candidates while seeking to defeat those it considers a threat to U.S.-Israeli relations.

#13: She Said What!? Ilhan Omar Has Anti-Semitism Trouble Again

11-Omar

As recorded in a 4 March 2019 Townhall article, it seems that Ilhan Omar repeated her anti-Semitic ways.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) just can’t get past the anti-Semitism issue. She has peddled in such trash before, posting tweets that were very…problematic with regards to this issue. And no, they’re not old. They’re not from high school. They’re from last month. And it’s stuff that isn’t new; Jewish Minnesota leaders had to have a sit-down with her because of her remarks. It was when she tweeted “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel” back in 2012. Now, after her “all about the Benjamins” fiasco, which once again peddled old anti-Semitic stereotypes about people of the Jewish faith, money, and influence, these local leaders might not treat her with “kid gloves” anymore. The media certainly hasn’t let her off the hook, reporting on her serial stupidity on this front.

So, what’s her latest anti-Semitic trainwreck? Well, she sort of accused people who are pro-Israel of exhibiting dual loyalty. She made such remarks last Wednesday. Even liberal writers can see through her nonsense, noting that she’s peddling the Palestinian cause to smuggle in bigoted talking points (via NYT):

Representative Ilhan Omar, a freshman Democrat from Minnesota, came under scrutiny again this week because of her comments about Israel.

The remarks in question came during a discussion at a Washington bookstore on Wednesday about how critics have repeatedly labeled Ms. Omar’s criticism of Israel as anti-Semitic. She argued that the label is being used in bad faith to shut down debate.

The sentence that garnered the most attention was, “I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is O.K. for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country.”

Ms. Omar questioned why it was acceptable for her to speak critically about the political influence of the National Rifle Association, fossil fuel industries and “big pharma,” but not the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. (After she was widely criticized for a tweet about Aipac last month, she deleted it and apologized.)

In an article for New York magazine about the bookstore event, the writer Jonathan Chait accused Ms. Omar of using the cause of Palestinian rights “to smuggle in ugly stereotypes.”

He added that she was “invoking the hoary myth of dual loyalty, in which the Americanness of Jews is inherently suspect.”

Some conservative news outlets also posted articles critical of the comments. And Marshall Wittmann, a spokesman for Aipac, said in a statement that the accusation of “dual loyalty” was alarming.

“The charge of dual loyalty not only raises the ominous specter of classic anti-Semitism, but it is also deeply insulting to the millions upon millions of patriotic Americans, Jewish and non-Jewish, who stand by our democratic ally, Israel,” Mr. Wittmann said.

The New York Times continues with its part of main-stream media’s wall-to-wall coverage of the Christchurch massacre

The New York Times reported in a 25 March 2019 article on, more or less, 10 days of non-stop reporting on the Christchurch massacre at two mosques.

As Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern of New Zealand considered on Monday how her government would investigate the terrorist attack that traumatized the country 10 days ago, she also began returning to normal business, announcing that she would make a long-delayed trip to Beijing next week.

The visit will be “literally 24 hours, and traveling with as little time away as possible,” Ms. Ardern said, adding that the trip had been planned “some weeks ago” and that Chinese officials had been “incredibly accommodating” about her decision to shorten it after the shooting attacks on two Christchurch mosques in which 50 people were killed.

The Right Scoop reports 500 Christians killed by Islamic extremists.

In a story that occurred concurrently with the Christchurch attack, at least 300 Christians were killed by 2 Islamic groups according to a report by the Christian Broadcasting Network in mid-March.

The news out of Nigeria is getting progressively worse as it is being reported that more than 300 people were killed in at least seven predominantly Christian villages across Nigeria in February and March this year, according to multiple sources that monitor persecution of Christians.

“Since February 10, there have been at least 270 people killed in Kaduna State alone,” International Christian Concern confirms. “It has been reported that at least 70 Christians have been killed during a 10-week span at the beginning of 2019 across the other Middle Belt states.”

In one early morning attack on the village of Karamai on Feb. 14, sources said 41 people died after 300 gunmen swarmed the village shouting “Allahu Akbar!” as they fired their weapons and ransacked people’s homes, according to Barnabas Fund. It was reported almost all of those killed were women and children along with a few senior residents who were unable to run away.

Dutch Tram Attack May Be Terrorism

A 19 March 2019 New York Times piece outlines the obvious without pointing fingers at the guilty.

The Dutch police said on Tuesday that they were still considering terrorism as a motive for a deadly shooting on a tram in the city of Utrecht based partly on a note they discovered.

The shooting on Monday, which left at least three people dead and seven injured, and an ensuing manhunt prompted heightened security and sent ripples of fear through the Netherlands. A 37-year-old immigrant from Turkey was arrested Monday night.

People who know the suspect, Gokmen Tanis, and family members in Turkey quoted by news organizations there, had said on Monday that they believed the assault grew out of some kind of domestic dispute.

But the police said they had so far found no links between Mr. Tanis and the three people killed on the tram.

Never mind what the attacker yelled, what affiliations he had, or where he came from — we would not want to characterize the guilty, would we?

RedState: Islamists Kill Hundreds of Nigerian Christians Since February and No One Notices

In a 29 March 2019 RedState article, I confirmed the findings of the reporter (since normal searches on Google will put the New York Times right at the top of any search of any news topic. The NYTwits had nothing to say. RedState, on the other hand, had this:

If you want an example of how the media picks and chooses tragedies on the basis of how much of whether they can push their chosen political narrative or not, here you go.

After weeks of coverage, and rightfully so, over the mass shooting in Christchurch, New Zealand by a white supremacist, ask yourself why you’ve haven’t also heard about the consistent slaughter of Christians that’s happening in Nigeria?

Islamic terrorists killed more than 120 Christians and burned dozens of homes in northern Nigeria in a series of attacks they have waged since February.

ISIS-affiliated Boko Haram militants and Muslim Fulani tribesmen have hammered Christian villages in the Kaduna, Benue and Borno state, spurred on partly by Kaduna Gov. Nasir El-Rufai’s dubious claims that 133 people, mostly Fulani, were murdered on the eve of Nigeria’s presidential elections. The Nigerian Emergency Management Agency refuted his claim, calling it “a rumor to instigate violence.”

As is often the case, a Muslim leader lied in order to facilitate deadly attacks on other religious groups. This is a pattern that’s repeated itself in Islamic countries for as long as the religion has existed.

We most definitely need to pray for our brothers in Nigeria, along with encouraging what help we can provide.
