Four stories on the problems of Mayor Pete Buttigieg

Featured

  1. Buttigieg Says He Won’t Be ‘Lectured On Family Values’ By Rush Limbaugh Or Trump Supporters

The Daily Caller points out that Mayor Pete has rejected the criticism of various people.

MayorPete2020 Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg said Sunday that he will not be “lectured on family values” by the likes of radio host Rush Limbaugh or Trump supporters.

The former South Bend, Indiana, mayor spoke on “Fox News Sunday” with anchor Chris Wallace, who brought up separate comments Limbaugh and “America First” host Sebastian Gorka made on Feb. 12 about Buttigieg’s stances on abortion and electability.

“A gay guy, 37 years old, loves kissing his husband on debate stages. Can you see [President Donald] Trump have fun with that?” Limbaugh asked, while Gorka questioned, “Why is a homosexual man lecturing us about the sanctity of life in the womb? Just a little curious there, strange.”

“What is your reaction to those comments?” Wallace asked Buttigieg.

The gay presidential candidate responded: “I am in a faithful, loving, committed marriage. I’m proud of my marriage, and I’m proud of my husband.”

He added:

And I’m not going to be lectured on family values from the likes of Rush Limbaugh or anybody who supports Donald J. Trump as the moral as well as political leader of the United States. America has moved on, and we should have politics of belonging that welcomes everybody. That’s what the American people are for. And I am saddened for what the Republican Party has become if they embrace that kind of homophobic rhetoric.

This seems like a return to the times before the Israelite kings and the times of the Proverbs

This does seem like a return to the times of the Septuagint. You see, in the days before the kings, “every man did what was right in his own eyes” (Judges 17:6 NASB). Likewise, Solomon observed this binary nature of the paths we can take:

Every man’s way is right in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the hearts. (Proverbs 21:2 NASB).

Like the men of those earlier times, Mayor Pete only wants to do things his way. He would rather ignore the counsel of both the Old and New Testaments concerning homosexuality (Leviticus 18:22; Leviticus 20:13; Mark 10:6-9; Romans 1:26-28; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11; 1 Corinthians 7:2; 1 Timothy 3:2-3; 1 Timothy 1:8-11; and Jude 1:5-8). Likewise it seems that he would ignore the verses limiting marriage to one man and one woman (such as Matthew 19:4-6). Like many others, Buttigieg would like to focus on a a message that offers the love and forgiveness of God without requiring repentance. Sorry to say, but that adulterates the entire message of the Bible. Therefore, this has become one step too far.

You might ask why anyone would bother pointing out this discrepancy. Normally, politicians build coalitions based on shared goals of various groups they may claim allegiance. In this case, Buttigieg claims to be a Christian. Mind you, this type of Christianity falls outside of most Christian orthodoxy. Nonetheless, it would seem that an aspiring politician would do everything to build commonalities between himself and the large groups. Not so in this case, which does not seem so wise — which brings up back to Solomon.

Solomon also reminded us:

Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates reproof is stupid. (Proverbs 12:1 NASB).

It seems to me that Mayor Pete might want to listen to someone who does not exactly mirror his own views.

  1. Buttigieg Scorns Pro-Life Votes

Lifezette reports that Mayor Pete calls for Democrat purity on the pro-abortion topic.

ButtigiegScornsProLifeVotesAt a Fox News town hall appearance on Sunday Democrat presidential candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, IN, read out of his party anyone who supports the rights of the unborn and who disdains infanticide.

He instead hoped they could work together on other issues, he responded to a pro-life Democrat who queried him on the matter.

Democrats for Life of America leader Kristen Day said on Fox & Friends on Tuesday, “But I would first of all say that when I asked him the question, I didn’t ask him where he stood on abortion. And the fact that he took that opportunity to double down and sort of alienate pro-life Democrats even further just showed me that he did not — he does not want our vote. And, you know, I’m willing to discuss platform language with, but…he could say that and reinforce that he is pro-choice and…let’s find ways that we can work together,” Day also said.

“The people will have to go to the polls and decide, but I know for sure a lot of Democrats did not go out and vote for Hillary Clinton because of her extreme stance on abortion,” Day concluded.

If Buttigieg and Bernie want to turn their backs on pro-life votes, there is room elsewhere

If Mayor Pete and Senator Sanders would like to make commitment to abortion a Democrat litmus test, then I wish them all the power they need. There is room in the conservative ranks for debate on various issues and we can welcome any degree of pro-life supporters that want to join.

  1. Media Ignores Buttigieg Refusing To Say He Does Not Support Infanticide

The Daily Caller points out how other outlets have ignored Mayor Pete’s refusal to say he does not support infanticide.

Establishment and liberal media failed to cover a presidential candidate refusing to say he does not support infanticide.

2020 presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg refused to come out against late-term abortion or infanticide Thursday, speaking to The View’s Meghan McCain. Yet establishment and liberal media, including CNN, The Washington Post, The New York Times, HuffPost and Vox, did not cover Buttigieg’s remarks. None of these publications responded to requests for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation.

McCain reminded Buttigieg that he once suggested unborn babies can be aborted up until they draw their first breath, and offered Buttigieg a chance to walk back the statement.

Buttigieg said “it shouldn’t be up to a government official to draw the line. It should be up to the woman.” When McCain pressed him on this, specifically asking if he would be comfortable with a situation where a “woman wanted to invoke infanticide after a baby was born,” Buttigieg still didn’t distance himself from infanticide.

Does anyone expect the media to come out against a Democrat?

I cannot express any surprise that the media that carried San Fran Nan’s message of “it’s for the children” now kow-tows to the abortion until birth mantra.

  1. Queer community isn’t happy with Mayor Pete

Townhall points out that Buttigieg doesn’t hold universal support among the gay community.

The LGBTQ community in San Francisco isn’t happy with former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg. They feel as though he fails to represent their community. On Friday, two protestors were booted from a fundraiser at the National LGBTQ Center for the Arts for attempting to ask him a question. When it became obvious that they were protestors, supporters began chanting “Boot-Edge-Edge! Boot-Edge-Edge!”

“I’m definitely proud of the fact that a gay candidate has made it thus far, but it’s hard to enjoy or appreciate when his stances are so middle of the road and speak to a predominantly white, upper class audience,” Celi Tamayo-Lee, one of the women who was kicked out of the event, told The Guardian.

Those who feel he’s too moderate take issue with Buttigieg not supporting Medicare for All, free college tuition, his issues with the black community and his ties to billionaire donors. There are issues that don’t impact the LGBTQ community as a whole but impact individuals who are also queer.

While I have seen the purity test play out in the Tea Party, I have seen it even more in liberal groups

Over the past few years, it seems that many liberal groups have called for ideological purity (refer to Bernie’s call and Buttigieg’s call for abortion purity). Hence, I expect this to continue and certain groups to tear themselves apart.

To those who find themselves victims, please hear this: every person was made in the image of God. All of us have messed something up, but each of us can be forgiven when we ask for that forgiveness.

Four stories on the Democrat side of the election

Featured

  1. Bernie Sanders wins New Hampshire, falls short of 2016 performance

Breitbart reports in a 11 February 2020 article on Bernie’s win (and how it does not stack up to his 2016 performance).

Bernie Sanders

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) won the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday, but he fell far short of his 2016 performance.

Sanders, who had been leading in the polls ahead of the first in the nation primary, only bested former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg by less than two percentage points when the race was called with 80 percent of precincts reporting. Sanders beat Buttigieg, garnering more than 64,000 to the former mayor’s less than 62,000.

The numbers stand in stark contrast to 2016 when the Vermont septuagenarian bested former Secretary of State Hillary by double digits in New Hampshire. In that contest, Sanders garnered more than 152,000 votes, compared to just a little over 95,000 for Clinton. Overall, Sanders carried New Hampshire by more than 22 percentage points during that cycle.

The 2016 victory was made possible by high turnout and little competition—two luxuries Sanders did not have this time around. According to exit polls conducted by NBC News, turnout appeared to be lower across New Hampshire than in prior presidential primary cycles. The biggest dropoff seems to have come from new and young voters. In particular, according to one exit poll, only 11 percent of New Hampshire voters were younger than 29 on Tuesday, down from 19 percent in 2016.

Complicating matters for Sanders is that the same exit polls showed that half of New Hampshire primary voters found his position too liberal, while only 40 percent thought they were a good fit.

As many reports have been made on Bernie’s NH win, no other addressed the smaller support he received since 2016

The way Bernie proclaimed that he would beat President Trump, I wonder whether he knows that his own support has decreased since 2016. Maybe nobody had enough courage to mention the falling numbers to the angry old socialist.

  1. Sanders: ‘Being pro-choice is an essential part’ of being a Democrat

The Daily Caller points out how candidate Bernie Sanders sees no room in the Democrat tent for pro-life Democrats.

bernie-sanders

2020 Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders said Saturday that “being pro-choice is an essential part” of being a Democrat.

The Vermont senator spoke Saturday morning at the “Our Rights, Our Courts” presidential forum in New Hampshire. Demand Justice Initiative, Center for Reproductive Rights, NARAL Pro-Choice America and MSNBC cosponsored the event.

Sanders discussed whether Democrats must be pro-choice. “I think in the Senate’s, probably 95% of the Democrats are pro-choice, the other few are not — in the House, maybe even a higher percentage,” he said.

“So that’s kind of what my view is. I think by this time in history, I think when we talk about what a Democrat is, I think being pro-choice is an essential part of that,” he added.

Sanders’s words come after pro-life Democrat Kristin Day questioned former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg on Democratic inclusion of pro-life Democrats during a Jan. 26 town hall with Fox’s Chris Wallace.

“I’m a proud pro-life Democrat,” she said. “Do you want the support of pro-life Democratic voters?”

“There are 21 million of us. And if so, would you support more moderate platform language to ensure the party of diversity and inclusion does include everybody?” she continued.

Buttigieg said that though he respects her views, he is not going to try to earn her vote “by tricking” her.

(Read more at the Daily Caller)

This comes from the party of “inclusion” and “diversity”

So, to be a Democrat according to Comrade Sanders, you need to goose-step to his tune. Of course, this comes from the party where all of the front runners are white. At least they got away from the requirement that they all be white and 70+.

  1. Bernie Sanders goes full tilt abortion

Townhall comments on the diatribe of Bernie Sanders on taxpayer-funded abortion and pro-life Democrats.

A conglomerate of pro-abortion groups, including NARAL Pro-Choice, the Center for Reproductive Rights and Demand Justice, held a forum in New Hampshire on Saturday focusing on abortion.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) made it very clear he believes that in order to be a Democrat a person must be pro-choice, a clear jab at pro-life Democratic voter Kristen Day. She was the one who asked former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg if he supported the Democratic Party changing its platform to be more inclusive of pro-life Democrats.

“Is there such a thing as a pro-life Democrat in your vision of the party?” NBC News’ Stephanie Ruhle asked.

“I think being pro-choice is an absolutely essential part of being a Democrat,” he replied to audience cheers. “If you’re asking me – and I think I may be wrong on this – I think in the Senate, probably 95 percent of the Democrats are pro-choice, the other few are not. In the House, maybe even a higher percentage. So that’s kind of what my view is.”

“I think, by this time in history, I think when we talk about what a Democrat is, I think being pro-choice is essentially an essential part of that,” Sanders concluded.

Later in the forum, he discussed Medicare for All and how, under his version of the plan, abortions would be funded by the taxpayers.

Once we knew that Sanders would limit Democrats to the pro-abortion view, we should expect that the socialist would require us to participate in abortion

Never mind the Supreme Court decisions on freedom of religion. This angry old socialist will shout down any opposition to abortion. If he can, he will likely be the one to require Christians stand before firing squads (considering his past views on Christians in office).

  1. Poll says Americans do not accept Bernie’s socialism

Townhall comments in a 15 February 2020 article on a poll that suggests that America has not developed a taste for Bernie’s brand of socialism.

Well, this should make for some good talking points against Sen. Bernie Sanders’ agenda to transform America into a socialist utopia. The Vermont senator is running on one of the most radical agendas in recent memory. It’s decidedly left-wing. Its supporters are decidedly left-wing. The energy that is has channeled has forced the Democratic Party to lurch to the left, much to the annoyance of the establishment. You see that with the Democratic National Committee pretty much changing the rules so that former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg can be on stage. Sanders supporters will only see this as yet another time the Democratic National Committee interfered in a primary contest to screw over Sanders. Still, there is this poll to deal with that shows a majority of Americans would not vote for a socialist for president (via Fox News):

The results of a new Gallup poll suggest that Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., may face a big challenge winning the White House if he succeeds in capturing the Democratic Party’s nomination for president.

The survey, conducted from Jan. 16-29 among 1,033 adults, found 53 percent said that they would not vote for their party nominee if they were a, “generally well-qualified person for president who happened to be socialist.”

Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist, went into the New Hampshire Democratic primary on strong footing Tuesday night, after he nearly tied former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg in the Iowa Caucuses.

[…]

The Gallup poll showed Democrats are most willing to support a socialist, with 76 percent saying they would vote for a candidate with that political ideology. Only 45 percent of Independents and 17 percent of Republicans said they would do the same.

This is by no means a silver bullet that could end Sanders’ agenda. Or could it? Seventy-six percent of your party’s voters is not a strong showing from the base. Yet, let’s not take Sanders out of the realm of the possible, which is one of the reasons why Trump won; Democrats simply couldn’t fathom him winning. Keep this trend in your back pocket. Yet, what is does show is that all-in-all Americans know what far-left policies yield: equal suffering.

One wonders whether the 76% of Democrats supporting socialism have looked at Venezuela

It seems that the line that gets toed is whatever the Democrat leadership says calls it. If the Democrat leadership says abortion-to-birth constitutes the Democrat line, then almost 80% of the Democrat faithful sidle up to that line. If San Fran Nan and Bernie say that capitalism sucks (even though just about every Democrat in Congress for more than a term has amassed a fortune), then the Democrat faithful fall in line with socialism.

Five stories on the March for Life

Featured

  1. Trump becomes first President to attend March For Life: ‘Every person is worth protecting’

The Daily Caller reported in a 24 January 2020 article on the historic speech by President Trump.

Trump-speaks-at-march-for-life-President Donald Trump became the first U.S. president to attend the annual March For Life on Friday, telling the crowd that he believes “every person is worth protecting.”

Hundreds of thousands of people gather every year in Washington, DC for the march in opposition to abortion. Vice President Mike Pence has attended the march in the past and Trump has addressed the rally goers in video messages, but this is the first year that the president attended in person.

“It is my profound honor to be the first president in history to attend the March for Life!” Trump told the crowd. “We’re here for a very simple reason — to defend the right of every child, born and unborn, to fulfill their God-given potential.”

“Every life brings love into this world,” Trump said. “Every person is worth protecting.”

Trump knocked several Democrats during his speech for their pro-abortion comments, particularly Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, who suggested that mothers and doctors should be allowed to kill children shortly after they are born.

“If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother,” Northam said during an interview last year.

Trump has implemented several pro-life policies since taking office, including declaring that taxpayer funds can no longer be used for abortion referrals under Title X. Planned Parenthood opted out of Title X program funding rather than stop referring women for abortions.

Better than the common defense “you may be aborting the person to cure cancer”

Better than the worthless-until-proven posit, President Trump’s suggestion that all people (even those born with disabilities or those who stutter — like San Fran Nan) have the image of God upon them (for those who were schooled under the tutelage of nuns, that would be the imago dei).

  1. Lifezette also reports on Trump’s historic speech

In a 24 January 2020 article, Livezette reported on the speech by President Trump at the March for Life.

Fox News reports that from laymen to leaders, conservative and pro-life Christians are showing up at Friday’s DC pro-life March for Life in droves.

Many of them are no doubt encouraged and thrilled at the scheduled appearance of President Donald Trump.

Trump is the first U.S. president to ever address the rally in person.

Heather Childers
Heather Childers

Appearing on “Fox & Friends: First” with host Heather Childers, March for Life president Jeanne Mancini said that President Trump has “absolutely put his money where his mouth is” on pro-life issues.

Their own words speak volumes as to their commitment to this cause.

“Inviting wonderful Evangelical leaders like … Pastor David Platt from McLean Bible Church, Rev. Dr. Matthew Harrison of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod and Jim Daly, President of Focus on the Family, to participate is one small way we do this. We want to do everything possible to welcome pro-life people of all faiths to the March for Life,” said march organizer Jeanne Mancini.

The march began in 1974 as mainly a Roman Catholic event. It has expanded to include all faiths.

A first ignored by the main stream media

While the main stream media focuses on the third impeachment of a president (mind you, the first to be impeached without being charged with a crime), they ignore the first time a sitting president speaks to the March for Life.

  1. Exclusive: Mike Pence’s daughter, Charlotte Pence explains why being Pro-Life is Pro-Woman

The Daily Caller reported in a 24 January 2020 article on the words of Charlotte Pense.

Charlotte Pence Bond

Charlotte Pence Bond, author and the daughter of Vice President Mike Pence sat down with the Daily Caller’s Stephanie Hamill for a wide-ranging interview on her views of the pro-life movement.

Bond explained to the Caller why she’s a supporter of the pro-life movement and why she believes being pro-life is actually pro-woman.

“The pro-choice movement isn’t pro-women, I think it’s ultimately sending a message of defeat, I think it’s giving women a choice, but really they’re not given a choice, they’re told what to do,” said Bond.

She also gave reaction to President Donald Trump speaking at the March For Life rally in Washington D.C. on Friday.

It’s a good thing that the press never idolizes the children of politicians

In this case, the press barely gave Mrs. Bond the time of day. It’s a good thing that people like Chelsea Clinton or Meghan McCain don’t get a special consideration by the press (and especially not for any far-left positions held).

  1. Thousands of college students will travel up to 24 hours on a bus for this DC protest

The Daily Caller also reported in a 21 January 2020 article on the thousands of college students who traveled up to 24 hours on bus to attend the march.

prolifestudents51College students throughout the United States will take bus trips up to 24 hours long as they head to the nation’s capital to “bring awareness to the horrors of abortion and the beauty of life.”

Many college students who are preparing to go to the March for Life on Friday face at least a full day of traveling on a packed bus for a short trip — but they said they could not be more excited.

The Daily Caller News Foundation spoke with students and leaders at Christian colleges and universities across the country who described how students are willing to make sacrifices and take initiative to make sure they get to the 47th annual March for Life.

The last time I heard “college” it seems I also heard “liberal”

The last time I heard about a college, I remember hearing the words “socialist,” “liberal,” and other such words. However, this report (like the report posted in early January) provides significant hope. Thank God (and I do mean it)!

  1. Flashback: March For Life Defeats Obama Administration In Court

In a flashback to 2015, the Daily Caller points out how the Obama administration lost to the March for Life.

Obama-vs-SupremeA federal court prohibited the Obama administration from forcing a pro-life nonprofit to insure “abortion-inducing” contraceptives Monday, in what is the first exemption from the mandate granted to a secular organization.

March for Life, which holds a pro-life rally every January in Washington, D.C., filed suit against three federal agencies last year, demanding an exemption from the mandate. It requires employers to provide insurance coverage for 20 FDA-approved contraceptives at no extra cost to the employee — including birth control pills March for Life and other pro-lifers believe are a form of abortion.

A D.C. District Court sided with March for Life Monday, signaling organizations that are not overtly religious can be exempted from the mandate, in addition to those which fall under a religious exemption put in place.

“If the purpose of the religious employer exemption is, as HHS states, to respect the anti-abortifacient tenets of an employment relationship, then it makes no rational sense-indeed, no sense whatsoever to deny March for Life that same respect,” the decision states.

The Obama administration formulated the religious exemption after a decisive defeat last year in a case against Hobby Lobby. Religious employers can exempted if they notify the Department of Health and Human Services or their insurance providers that they have religious objections to birth control coverage.

Least any of you forget the strong dictatorial tendencies of the last socialist-leaning administration

Christians must forgive; however, for us to learn from history, we must also not forget the past while we forgive the people. Remember the letter to the Ephesians:

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 6:12 NASB)

Good news that went unreported in main stream media


74 Miles of Border Wall Completed, 158 More Under Construction

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

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

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

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

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

Nobody in the main stream press will report this win

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

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

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

Lives saved: nine illegal aliens rescued from Texas border river

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Your gift today can expose Democrats’ abortion agenda.

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

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

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

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

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

President Trump is “stacking” the 9th Circuit

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Religious liberty cases reaching nation’s highest court

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Democrats compared Clinton’s impeachment to lynching

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

WaPo calls al Baghdadi an “austere religious scholar”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

House Democrats to Vote on Impeachment Procedures Thursday

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Observations on the El Paso and Dayton shootings


Walmart shooter manifesto: a madman’s rant

WALMART SHOOTER MANIFESTO

The Inconvenient Truth

About Me

Walmart

In general, I support the Christchurch shooter and his manifesto. This attack is a response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas. They are the instigators, not me. I am simply defending my country from cultural and ethnic replacement brought on by an invasion. Some people will think this statement is hypocritical because of the nearly complete ethnic and cultural destruction brought to the Native Americans by our European ancestors, but this just reinforces my point. The natives didn’t take the invasion of Europeans seriously, and now what’s left is just a shadow of what was. My motives for this attack are not at all personal. Actually the Hispanic community was not my target before I read The Great Replacement. This manifesto will cover the political and economic reasons behind the attack, my gear, my expectations of what response this will generate and my personal motivations and thoughts.

Political Reasons

In short, America is rotting from the inside out, and peaceful means to stop this seem to be nearly impossible. The inconvenient truth is that our leaders, both Democrat AND Republican, have been failing us for decades. They are either complacent or involved in one of the biggest betrayals of the American public in our history. The takeover of the United States government by unchecked corporations. I could write a ten page essay on all the damage these corporations have caused, but here is what is important. Due to the death of the baby boomers, the increasingly anti-immigrant rhetoric of the right and the ever increasing Hispanic population, America will soon become a one party-state. The Democrat party will own America and they know it. They have already begun the transition by pandering heavily to the Hispanic voting bloc in the 1st Democratic Debate. They intend to use open borders, free healthcare for illegals, citizenship and more to enact a political coup by importing and then legalizing millions of new voters. With policies like these, the Hispanic support for Democrats will likely become nearly unanimous in the future. The heavy Hispanic population in Texas will make us a Democrat stronghold. Losing Texas and a few other states with heavy Hispanic population to the Democrats is all it would take for them to win nearly every presidential election. Although the Republican Party is also terrible. Many factions within the Republican Party are pro-corporation. Pro-corporation = pro-immigration. But some factions within the Republican Party don’t prioritize corporations over our future. So the Democrats are nearly unanimous with their support of immigration while the Republicans are divided over it. At least with Republicans, the process of mass immigration and citizenship can be greatly reduced.

Economic Reasons

In short, immigration can only be detrimental to the future of America. Continued immigration will make one of the biggest issues of our time, automation, so much worse. Some sources say that in under two decades, half of American jobs will be lost to it. Of course some people will be retrained, but most will not. So it makes no sense to keep on letting millions of illegal or legal immigrants flood into the United States, and to keep the tens of millions that are already here. Invaders who also have close to the highest birthrate of all ethnicities in America. In the near future, America will have to initiate a basic universal income to prevent widespread poverty and civil unrest as people lose their jobs. Joblessness in itself is a source of civil unrest. The less dependents on a government welfare system, the better. The lower the unemployment rate, the better. Achieving ambitions social projects like universal healthcare and UBI would become far more likely to succeed if tens of millions of dependents are removed.

Even though new migrants do the dirty work, their kids typically don’t. They want to live the American Dream which is why they get college degrees and fill higher-paying skilled positions. This is why corporations lobby for even more illegal immigration even after decades of it of happening. They need to keep replenishing the low-skilled labor pool. Even as migrant children flood skilled jobs, Corporations make this worse by lobbying for even more work visas to be issued for skilled foreign workers to come here. Recently, the senate under a REPUBLICAN administration has greatly increased the number of foreign workers that will take American jobs. Remember that both Democrats and Republicans support immigration and work visas. Corporations need to keep replenishing the labor pool for both skilled and unskilled jobs to keep wages down. So Automation is a good thing as it will eliminate the need for new migrants to fill unskilled jobs. Jobs that American s can’t survive on anyway. Automation can and would replace millions of low-skilled jobs if immigrants were deported. This source of competition for skilled labor from immigrants and visa holders around the world has made a very difficult situation even worse for natives as they compete in the skilled job market. To compete, people have to get better credentials by spending more time in college. It used to be that a high school degree was worth something. Now a bachelor’s degree is what’s recommended to be competitive in the job market. The cost of college degrees has exploded as their value has plummeted.

This has led to a generation of indebted, overqualified students filling menial, low paying and unfulfilling jobs. Of course these migrants and their children have contributed to the problem, but are not the sole cause of it.

The American lifestyle affords our citizens an incredible quality of life. However, our lifestyle is destroying the environment of our country. The decimation of the environment is creating a massive burden for future generations. Corporations are heaing the destruction of our environment by shamelessly over harvesting resources. This has been a problem for decades. For example, this phenomenon is brilliantly portrayed in the decades old classic “The Lorax”. Water sheds around the country, especially in agricultural areas, are being depleted. Fresh water is being polluted from farming and oil drilling operations. Consumer culture is creating thousands of tons of unnecessary plastic waste and electronic waste, and recycling to help slow this down is almost non-existent. Urban sprawl create s inefficient cities which unnecessarily destroys millions of acres of land. We even use god knows how many trees worth of paper towels just wipe water off our hands. Everything I have seen and heard in my short life has led me to believe that the average American isn’t willing to change their lifestyle, even if the changes only cause a slight inconvenience. The government is unwilling to tackle these issues beyond empty promises since they are owned by corporations. Corporations that also like immigration because more people means a bigger market for their products. I just want to say that I love the people of this country, but god damn most of y’all are just too stubborn to change your lifestyle. So the next
logical step is to decrease the number of people in America using resources. If we can get rid of enough people, then our way of life can become more sustainable.

Gear

Main gun: AK47 (WASR 10) – I realized pretty quickly that this isn’t a great choice since it’s the civilian version of the ak47. It’s not designed to shoot rounds quickly, so it overheats massively after about 100 shots fired in quick succession. I’ll have to use a heat-resistant glove to get around this.

8m3 bullet: This bullet, unlike pretty much any other 7.62×39 bullet, actually fragments like a pistol hollow point when shot out of an ak47 at the cost of penetration. Penetration is still reasonable, but not nearly as high as a normal ak47 bullet. The ak47 is definitely a bad choice without this bullet design, and may still be with it.

Other gun(if I get one): Ar15 – Pretty much any variation of this gun doesn’t heat up nearly as fast as the AK47. The round of this gun isn’t designed to fragment, but instead tumbles inside a target causing lethal wounding. This gun is probably better, but I wanted to explore different options. The ar15 is probably the best gun for military applications but this isn’t a military application.

This will be a test of which is more lethal, either it’s fragmentation or tumbling.

I didn’t spend much time at all preparing for this attack. Maybe a month, probably less. I have do this before I lose my nerve. I figured that an under-prepared attack and a meh manifesto is better than no attack and no manifesto

Reaction

Statistically, millions of migrants have returned to their home countries to reunite with the family they lost contact with when they moved to America. They come here as economic immigrants, not for asylum reasons. This is an encouraging sign that the Hispanic population is willing to return to their home countries if given the right incentive. An incentive that myself and many other patriotic Americans will provide. This will remove the threat of the Hispanic voting bloc which will make up for the loss of millions of baby boomers. This will also make the elites that run corporations realize that it’s not in their interest to continue piss off Americans. Corporate America doesn’t need to be destroyed, but just shown that they are on the wrong side of history. That if they don’t bend, they will break.

Personal Reasons and Thoughts

My whole life I have been preparing for a future that currently doesn’t exist. The job of my dreams will likely be automated. Hispanics will take control of the local and state government of my beloved Texas, changing policy to better suit their needs. They will turn Texas into an instrument of a political coup which will hasten the destruction of our country. The environment is getting worse by the year. If you take nothing else from this document, remember this: INACTION IS A CHOICE. I can no longer bear the shame of inaction knowing that our founding fathers have endowed me with the rights needed to save our country from the brink destruction. Our European comrades don’t have the gun rights needed to repel the millions of invaders that plaque their country. They have no choice but to sit by and watch their countries burn.

America can only be destroyed from the inside-out.

If our country falls, it will be the fault of traitors. This is why I see my actions as faultless. Because this isn’t an act of imperialism but an act of preservation. America is full of hypocrites who will blast my actions as the sole result of racism and hatred of other countries, despite the extensive evidence of all the problems these invaders cause and will cause. People who are hypocrites because they support imperialistic wars that have caused the loss of tens of thousands of American lives and untold numbers of civilian lives. The argument that mass murder is okay when it is state sanctioned is absurd. Our government has killed a whole lot more people for a whole lot less. Even if other non-immigrant targets would have a greater impact, I can’t bring myself to kill my fellow Americans. Even the Americans that seem hell-bent on destroying our country. Even if they are shameless race mixers, massive polluters, haters of our collective values, etc. One day they will see error of their ways. Either when American patriots fail to reform our country and it collapses or when we save it. But they will see the error of their ways. I promise y’all that. I am against race mixing because it destroys genetic diversity and creates identity problems. Also because it’s completely unnecessary and selfish. 2nd and 3rd generation Hispanics form interracial unions at much higher rates than average. Yet another reason to send them back.

Cultural and racial diversity is largely temporary. Cultural diversity diminishes as stronger and/or more appealing cultures overtake weaker and/or undesirable ones. Racial diversity will disappear as either race mixing or genocide will take place. But the idea of deporting or murdering all non-white Americans is horrific. Many have been here at least as long as the whites, and have done as much to build our country. The best solution to this for now would be to divide America into a confederacy of territories with at least 1 territory for each race. This physical separation would nearly eliminate race mixing and improve social unity by granting each race self-determination within their respective territory(s).

My death is likely inevitable. If I’m not killed by the police, then I’ll probably be gunned down by one of the invaders. Capture in this case if far worse than dying during the shooting because I’ll get the death penalty anyway. Worse still is that I would live knowing that my family despises me. This is why I’m not going to surrender even if I run out of ammo. If I’m captured, it will be because I was subdued somehow.

Remember: it is not cowardly to pick low hanging fruit. AKA Don’t attack heavily guarded areas to fulfll your super soldier COD fantasy. Attack low security targets. Even though you might out gun a security guard or police man, they likely beat you in armor, training and numbers. Do not throw away your life on an unnecessarily dangerous target. If a target seems too hot, live to fight another day.

My ideology has not changed for several years. My opinions on automation, immigration, and the rest predate Trump and his campaign for president. I putting this here because some people will blame the President or certain presidential candidates for the attack. This is not the case. I know that the media will probably call me a white supremacist anyway and blame Trump’s rhetoric. The media is infamous for fake news. Their reaction to this attack will likely just confirm that.

Many people think that the fight for America is already lost. They couldn’t be more wrong. This is just the beginning of the fight for America and Europe.

I am honored to head the fight to reclaim my country from destruction.

A few correlations that need to be made

Just as the El Paso shooter predicted, Trump has been blamed for the shooting.

Admittedly, just as Democrats have pointed out, there are two points of commonality between this degranged madman’s rants and President Trump’s speeches. First, both call the events at the Southern border an invasion. But what else do you call the incursion of hundreds of thousands of uninvited invaders? Second, they both call out “fake news.” Still, what else do you call a press that reports positive stories on one president 59% of the time while reporting 93% negative stories on another?

On the other hand, the following commonalities exist between the El Paso shooter and the Democrat Presidential nominees:

  1. Their common hate for corporations (as evidenced by the video and article on Liz Warren below).
  2. Their consideration of free healthcare for illegal immigrants (the madman opposes this while all of the Democrat Presidential candidates at the second debate supported it)
  3. Their consideration of basic universal income — something the shooter saw as an inevitability and the Democrats embrace.
  4. Their fixation on the environment. On one side, the shooter waxes eloquent on the environment (calling a Dr Seuss children’s book a “decades old classic.”) Likewise, Democrat luminary AOC befuddled us all by first stating that we only had 12 years to correct global warming, then stating that it was just a joke, allows her chief of staff to tell us the Green New Deal centered on implementing socialism, and (finally) returning to her original screed stating that we only had 12 years.

The Dayton shooter was a leftist

Heavy.com reports in an 1 August 2019 article that Conner Betts was a self-described “leftist” who supported Bernie Sanders, Liz Warren, and Antifa.

ShootingDayton

Connor Betts, the Dayton, Ohio mass shooter, was a self-described “leftist,” who wrote that he would happily vote for Democrat Elizabeth Warren, praised Satan, was upset about the 2016 presidential election results, and added, “I want socialism, and i’ll not wait for the idiots to finally come round to understanding.”

Betts’ Twitter profile read, “he/him / anime fan / metalhead / leftist / i’m going to hell and i’m not coming back.” One tweet on his page read, “Off to Midnight Mass. At least the songs are good. #athiestsonchristmas.” The page handle? I am the spookster. On one selfie, he included the hashtags, “#selfie4satan #HailSatan @SatanTweeting.” On the date of Republican Sen. John McCain’s death, he wrote, “F*ck John McCain.” He also liked tweets referencing the El Paso mass shooting in the hours before Dayton.

Twitter has now suspended the Twitter page, removing it. It was up for several hours after the mass shooting.

Politicians’ statements that may have incited hatred

Maxine Waters

In a 25 June 2018 Real Clear Politics article, we see how Representative Maxine Waters said:

Already you have members of your cabinet that are being booed out of restaurants. We have protesters taking up at their house who are saying, ‘No peace, no sleep. No peace, no sleep.’

When can we expect an apology from Maxine Waters? How many attacks against both Trump supporters (like the boy at a Whataburger, the shop owner mentioned below, and other instances), conservative politicians (like Ted Cruz in the restaurant, Mitch McConnell at home, and others), or the general public (like the San Diego, Garden Grove, and other cities) will occur before those on the Left ratchet down the rhetoric?

You see, I don’t see the problem as being guns. I see the problem as originating in the hearts of men.

Biden suggests starting ‘physical revolution’ to deal with Republicans

In a 17 June 2019 article at the Daily Wire, we find out about some of Joe Biden’s inner demons.

biden_0

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden appeared to suggest using violence against Republicans on Monday in response to a question about how he as president would deal with opposition to his agenda in the Senate from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Biden, currently the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination, made the remarks at the Moral Action Congress of the Poor People’s Campaign in Washington, D.C.

MSNBC’s Joy Reid asked Biden: “How would you get past either a majority Republican Senate in which Mitch McConnell was determined to kill all of these ideas or even a Mitch McConnell in the minority who repeated the consistent filibustering when you were vice president and anything that came from the Obama-Biden administration Mitch McConnell considered dead on arrival?”

“Joy, I know you’re one of the ones who thinks it’s naive to think we have to work together,” Biden responded. “The fact of the matter is if we can’t get a consensus, nothing happens except the abuse of power by the executive.”

“There are certain things where it just takes a brass knuckle fight,” Biden continued, later adding: “Let’s start a real physical revolution if you’re talking about it.”

As I mentioned in the reply to Maxine Waters’ screed, I think that the problem is in the tendency of all people to act on their baser motivations, to consider their immediate situation, and to sin.

Things do not get better when “leaders” advocate violence.

Liz Warren

Although the following Prager University video does not tell us where or when Liz Warren turned the corporations of America into boogeymen, it does show her saying:

My message is: You got things broken in your life? I’ll tell you exactly why. It’s because giant corporations (billionaires) have seized our government and — for decades now — they have been making that government work for a thinner and thinner slice at the top. And they do it mostly on the headlines: just a little tilt here, just a little shift there, just a little exception, until — over time — they’ve gotten richer and richer and richer and richer. And everybody else is left eating dirt.

As demonstrated by this little speech, Liz Warren carries at least a little in common with the El Paso shooter who so idolized her.

New York Teens react to Waters’ words

Intolerance in New York

Fox 5 in New York reports that a MAGA-hat wearing shop owner was beaten by a group of teens.

MagaHatNYA New York City art gallery owner says he was viciously beaten in Manhattan by a large group of teens for wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.

Jahangir “John” Turan, 42, says it happened Tuesday evening on Canal Street. He was wearing the MAGA hat that he had purchased earlier in the day at Trump Tower.

“I love President Trump. I think he’s doing a great job,” Turan said.

He says the group of about 15 “kids” yelled “F*** Trump” and stomped on him. One of them smashed his head into a scaffold. Turan says he suffered a fracture in his cheek and a badly swollen eye. He’s awaiting an eye specialist to determine if there is any permanent damage to his sight.

The Castro brothers dox Trump donors in San Antonio

CBS, USA Today, and the Washington Times tell us how one of the Castro brothers (one of whom is running for President) now finds himself being shamed for doxing.

The Washington Post reports it this way:

JoaquinCastro

The 44 names Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Tex.) tweeted late Monday have at least two things in common: They’re all constituents in his district, and they all donated the maximum amount to President Trump’s campaign this year.

The congressman and brother of presidential hopeful Julián Castro said the people listed — including retirees, business owners and other individuals whose names are public record — were “fueling a campaign of hate.”

“Sad to see so many San Antonians as 2019 maximum donors to Donald Trump — the owner of ⁦@BillMillerBarBQ⁩, owner of the ⁦@HistoricPearl, realtor Phyllis Browning, etc.,” Castro wrote. “Their contributions are fueling a campaign of hate that labels Hispanic immigrants as invaders.”

Castro, who also serves as chairman for his brother’s presidential campaign, spent much of Tuesday deflecting intense criticism from GOP lawmakers and others. They contended that Castro was “targeting” the listed donors by tweeting their names to his thousands of followers, a serious accusation in the aftermath of two weekend mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, Ohio, that left 31 people dead and many more wounded.

One interesting thing about Joaquin’s doxing of Trump voters in San Antonio was that these doxed donors included donors to the Julian and Joaquin political campaigns.

Evidence of a Pro-Obama media bias

Media Shocked by Joaquin Castro Doxxing Trump Donors; Ignored Obama Doing Same in 2012

Another Breitbart article reminds us that Obama also used intimidation of the donors to Romney’s campaign.

Hackett could have added that the Obama campaign did the same in 2012 without much objection from the media, except for a few conservative journalists, such as John Nolte of Breitbart News or Kimberly Strassel of the Wall Street Journal.

As Strassel noted in her 2016 book, The Intimidation Game: How the Left Is Silencing Free Speech:

It was an election year, and Obama was already going in heavy against the presumptive Republican nominee, Mitt Romney. The president’s reelection campaign erected a website, called “Keeping GOP Honest,” and had been using it to “truth check” Republican statements. But on that April 20, it broke new territory. In a post entitled “Behind the curtain: a brief history of Romney’s donors,” the president’s team publicly named eight private citizens who had given money to the Republican, accusing them all of being “wealthy individuals with less-than-reputable records.”

The site bluntly claimed that all eight men were “betting against America.” They were then each singled out, subjected to slurs and allegations.

As Strassel documented at the Journal, one of those eight, Frank VanderSloot, soon found himself the target of private investigators — and the federal government:

Mr. VanderSloot has since been learning what it means to be on a presidential enemies list. Just 12 days after the attack, the Idahoan found an investigator digging to unearth his divorce records. This bloodhound—a recent employee of Senate Democrats—worked for a for-hire opposition research firm.

Now Mr. VanderSloot has been targeted by the federal government. In a letter dated June 21, he was informed that his tax records had been “selected for examination” by the Internal Revenue Service.

Two weeks after receiving the IRS letter, Mr. VanderSloot received another—this one from the Department of Labor. He was informed it would be doing an audit of workers he employs on his Idaho-based cattle ranch under the federal visa program for temporary agriculture workers.

Others, such as the voter integrity organization True the Vote, were also targeted. Meanwhile, the Internal Revenue Service was also targeting conservative non-profit organizations — a fact that only became public after the election.

So, no matter how much the true believers of Saint Obama want to believe that there were no scandals within the Obama administration (despite their ignorance of Fast and Furious, the NSA scandal, the IRS being weaponized against the Tea Party, and other issues) — here is another fly in their ointment.

Hollywood steps in on the side of hateful Democrats

Leftist Netflix’s ‘Dear White People’ Depicts Trump Supporters as KKK Members

Breitbart reports in a 7 August 2019 article how Netflix plans to depict Trump supporters in their serice Dear White People.

The race-baiting Netflix series Dear White People has debuted its third season, and this year the show portrays supporters of President Donald Trump a racists and KKK members.

In the season’s third episode, Chapter III, a family of Trump voters is being given a makeover by a group of gays in a parody of the Netflix series Queer Eye called the U.S. of Gay.

The episode portrays the family as thoroughly low brow, slow-witted, and racist. They have Confederate flags posted around their home and property and have Trump signs in their yard. One member of the pro-Trump family — a bearded, bandana-wearing, bumpkin — asks if they can “make it so that only some people feel more welcome” at their home as the camera focuses in on the only black member of the gay crew. The “joke” was clearly stating that the family is racist.

Nothing to see here. Nothing but the rantings of a Leftist lunatic in full Trump Derangement Syndrome.

I mean, really. Just read the paragraph and imagine the scene the Netflix has created. This is hyperbolic racism against what they see as lower-class Whites. This doesn’t deserve any more time than to jot down a note and promise to never pay for Netflix.

‘Elites’ Kill ‘Deplorables’ In New Horror Film ‘The Hunt’

Breitbart reports in a 7 August 2019 article on a deplorable movie.

The Hunt is about a group of left-wing “elites” who hunt “deplorables.” and is scheduled to open everywhere September 27.

More from the far-left Hollywood Reporter:

“Did anyone see what our ratfucker-in-chief just did?” one character asks early in the screenplay for The Hunt, a Universal Pictures thriller set to open Sept. 27. Another responds: “At least The Hunt’s coming up. Nothing better than going out to the Manor and slaughtering a dozen deplorables.”

In the aftermath of mass shootings within days of one another that shocked and traumatized the nation, Universal is re-evaluating its strategy for the certain-to-be-controversial satire. The violent, R-rated film from producer Jason Blum’s Blumhouse follows a dozen MAGA types who wake up in a clearing and realize they are being stalked for sport by elite liberals.

Texas Lt. Gov. tells Antifa to ‘stay out’ of El Paso after Walmart shooting

Fox News points out in a Sunday, 4 August 2019 article how Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick told Antifa to “stay out” in light of the Walmart shooting.

danpatrick

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick explicitly warned the left-wing group Antifa against coming to the state following Saturday’s mass shooting at an El Paso Walmart.

The shooting came 29 days before a scheduled visit from Antifa, which planned to conduct a “Border Resistance” militancy training tour.

“Stay out of El Paso,” Patrick told Antifa during an appearance Fox News. He noted that while the group wasn’t usually welcome in Texas, they especially weren’t welcome after the shooting.

“Stay out of Texas, basically,” Patrick said. “We don’t need them coming in on Sept. 1. We didn’t need them coming in before this happened.”

I agree with the Lt. Governor. Even if this tragic event had not happened, we would not need Antifa in the state. We need these leftist thugs even less now.

President Trump’s inputs to this situation

Donald Trump mistakenly offers condolences to ‘Toledo’ shooting victims

Breitbart reports in a 5 August 2019 article how President Trump introduced a human factor into the equation (he screwed up).

President Donald Trump on Monday mistakenly referred to a shooting in Toledo, Ohio — instead of Dayton — in his address on a pair of mass shootings that occurred over the weekend.

“May God bless the memory of those who perished in Toledo, may God protect them. May God protect all of those from Texas to Ohio. May God bless the victims and their families,” the president stated in his remarks that he read from a teleprompter at the White House. It is unclear whether President Trump’s prepared remarks included Toledo or if he deviated from the speech as written. He correctly referred to Dayton during other parts of his remarks.

The president misspoke toward the end of his 10-minute speech in which he offered condolences to those affected by the “barbaric slaughters” in Dayton and El Paso, Texas, and condemned “white supremacy.”

“In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy,” he said. “These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hate has no place in America, hatred warps the mind, ravages the heart and devours the soul.”

Sorry that President Trump made this mistake; however, we are all fallen creatures and we miss the mark occasionally.

President Trump is talking about red-flag laws. Texas lawmakers have blocked those bills in the past.

The Texas Tribune points out in a 7 August 2019 article how Trump’s proposed red flag laws have been opposed by Texas Republicans.

In the wake of shootings in El Paso and Dayton, Ohio, the president and Congress are discussing laws blocking access to firearms for people considered an imminent threat. But here in Texas, bills that would do that have made little traction.

President Trump called for reforms to keep guns out of the hands of “mentally unstable” people on Wednesday, addressing reporters outside of the White House as he left for visits to Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, where two mass shootings have left at least 31 people dead and dozens more injured.

This is the second time this week President Trump has brought up possible reforms to gun laws. In a speech addressing the nation on Monday, Trump called for law enforcement to do “a better job of identifying and acting on early warning signs,” citing warnings to the FBI about a potential school shooting before a shooter killed 17 people at a high school in Parkland, Florida last year. Trump said that people who pose a “grave risk” should not be able to access firearms and there should be “rapid due process” for the weapons to be taken from such people who already have them.

“That is why I have called for red flag laws, also known as extreme risk protection orders,” Trump said.

Red-flag laws, which in most cases allow judges to temporarily seize an individual’s firearms if that person is considered an imminent threat, have faced a rough path in the Texas Legislature. At a 2018 committee hearing on gun proposals, law enforcement and gun rights advocates opposed such measures, citing worries that a progressive or unethical judge could take guns away from innocent people, or bend to the will of disgruntled family members or divorcees who may seek the order out of spite.

(Read more at The Texas Tribune)

I do not agree with the use of red flag laws. I believe that we should be held accountable for our actions and not for our potential acts.

Just as Ezekial 18:20 says The person who sins will die. The son will not bear the punishment for the father’s iniquity, nor will the father bear the punishment for the son’s iniquity; the righteousness of the righteous will be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked will be upon himself..

Armed customer likely deterred potential shooter at Mo. Walmart

A 10 August 2019 OneNewsNow article points out how an armed customer probably stopped a potential shooter at a Missouri Walmart.

In the wake of the recent Texas and Ohio mass shootings that took more than 30 lives, a “good guy with a gun” reportedly kept a man at a Walmart in Springfield, Missouri, from possibly unloading his assault rifle into unexpecting shoppers.

Exact details of the incident are still under investigation, but police arrived at the scene as a courageous bystander – an off-duty fireman holding a concealed carry permit for his firearm – was holding the threatening shooter at gunpoint and given credit for stopping the suspect – Dmitriy Andreychenko, a 20-year-old white mail – from carrying out a potential mass killing just five days after two horrific mass shootings took place across the country.

“[H]is intent was not to cause peace or comfort to anybody that was in the business,” Springfield police stated about the would-be shooter, according to KOLR 10 TV. “In fact, he’s lucky to be alive still, to be honest.”

The one thing not mentioned by either the Left or Right

In all the recriminations from the left and the right, nothing has been mentioned of a primary factor shared by the more recent, non-Muslim shooters: the breakdown of the family.

Dylan Roof, the racist shooter at the Charleston church, was a product of a divorced union. Likewise, the shooter at Santa Fe and other shooters.

Although mental illness also figures in the cases of the Sutherland Springs shooter and the Parkland shooter, these might also have been effected by the breakup of the family and the destabilizing effects of the current direction of morality within our society.

Why the Right does not mention the problem

Guys (and probably gals) on my side probably do not mention this problem because of our tendency to focus on ourselves. That is, we’ve been offended and we want our divorce now (without thinking of the repercussions). While this may be a condition shared by all humanity, it does not excuse the creation of the problem.

Why the Left does not mention the problem

As much as the Left would like to just be all-loving and all-forgiving, there have to be standards. Not every sexual desire that pops into a human head can be justified. Additionally, breaking the natural order the way the current trends push has consequences.

Three ways five stories tell us how we are losing our freedoms


  1. Emails Show Omar’s Committee Boasting of Being Able to Shut Down Stories in Star Tribune

Personnel in the office of Democrat Representative Ilhan Omar have taken to bragging about suppressing the freedom of the press as shown by a 14 June article in the Tennessee Star Tribune.

Ilhan-Omar-Emails

Internal emails released this week show members of Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN-05) 2016 Minnesota House campaign committee attempting to “shut down” a story “as we do with the Strib.”

“Strib” refers to the nickname used for The Star Tribune, Minnesota’s largest newspaper. The shocking emails were obtained by Powerline from the Minnesota Campaign Finance Board, which discovered the emails during its investigation into Omar’s campaign finance violations.

As Powerline notes, the emails were written following the outlet’s publication of an August 12, 2016 story questioning Omar’s marital status—the first story discussing Omar’s alleged marriage to her brother.

In response, Omar’s campaign committee temporarily hired Ben Goldfarb as a crisis communications manager.

“Does anyone on the team have a relationship with Blois?” Goldfarb wrote in an August 15 email, referring to Blois Olson, best known in media circles for his popular newsletter, Morning Take. That morning, Olson had linked to Powerline’s article in his newsletter.

“Someone should probably reach out to talk off the record and shut it down with him as we do with the Strib,” Goldfarb continued. “I don’t know him, but can do it if nobody has a relationship. And we can tighten up the statement today in case it does spread and we feel like we need to broadcast something later today.”

Goldfarb was attempting to craft a statement addressing the allegations against Omar, but admitted in a later email that “it’s impossible without making it even more confusing.”

“It just doesn’t work in writing,” he continued, noting that he’s “talked to the Strib and they are generally in a good place.”

“They get that there are not 2 legal marriages and are not pursuing the brother angle, but have pieced together that the person she is legally married to is not the father of children, on the website, etc. They are asking for confirmation of that,” Goldfarb wrote. “I think this gets us the best result of a closed case in the Strib that we can then point people to and say no more comments.”

Olson addressed the emails Thursday morning in his newsletter, claiming “no one ever reached out” and “we weren’t ‘shut down.”

“This is the type of reporting that other media should be doing, which is why there continues to be fair criticism about local coverage of Omar and others,” he added.

  1. a. New York Ends Religious Exemptions For Required Vaccines

National Public Radio seemingly covers the public-safety side of the issue of requiring people to vaccinate themselves and their children.

orthodox-jews_CanariesInTheReligiousMines

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a bill Thursday ending vaccination exemptions based on religious beliefs, the latest attempt to address the growing measles outbreak, the worst the U.S. has experienced in decades.

Cuomo said plugging the loophole should help contain the spike in measles cases in New York, the state hardest hit by the uptick in the contagious virus due to low vaccination rates in ultra-Orthodox communities.

“The science is crystal clear: Vaccines are safe, effective and the best way to keep our children safe,” Cuomo said after signing the bill. “While I understand and respect freedom of religion, our first job is to protect the public health and by signing this measure into law, we will help prevent further transmissions and stop this outbreak right in its tracks.”

The Democratic-controlled Legislature approved the measure, which also eliminates other nonmedical exemptions for schoolchildren across the state.

“We are facing an unprecedented public health crisis,” said Sen. Brad Hoylman, the legislation’s sponsor. “The atrocious peddlers of junk science and fraudulent medicine who we know as anti-vaxxers have spent years sowing unwarranted doubt and fear, but it is time for legislators to confront them head-on.”

Just looking at one side of the equation, it seems easier to say that the need to maintain the public’s health interests.

However, if you look at both sides of the equation (which the National Public Radio does not, but the purportedly “right-wing” Fox News — shown below — does in full measure), then a different picture develops.

  1. b. New York Ends Religious Exemptions For Required Vaccines

Fox News presents both the religious and the public-safety sides of the issue of requiring people to vaccinate themselves and their children.

NY_Measles_poster

New York eliminated the religious exemption to vaccine requirements for schoolchildren Thursday, as the nation’s worst measles outbreak in decades prompts states to reconsider giving parents ways to opt out of immunization rules.

The Democrat-led Senate and Assembly voted Thursday to repeal the exemption, which allows parents to cite religious beliefs to forego getting their child the vaccines required for school enrollment.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, signed the measure minutes after the final vote. The law takes effect immediately but will give unvaccinated students up to 30 days after they enter a school to show they’ve had the first dose of each required immunization.

With New York’s move, similar exemptions are still allowed in 45 states, though lawmakers in several of them have introduced their own legislation to eliminate the waiver.

The issue is hotly contested and debate around it has often been emotional, pitting cries that religious freedom is being curtailed against warnings that public health is being endangered. After the vote in the Assembly, many of those watching from the gallery erupted in cries of “shame!” One woman yelled obscenities down to the lawmakers below.

The debate has only intensified with this year’s measles outbreak , which federal officials recently said has surpassed 1,000 illnesses, the highest in 27 years.

“I’m not aware of anything in the Torah, the Bible, the Koran or anything else that suggests you should not get vaccinated,” said Bronx Democrat Jeffrey Dinowitz, the bill’s Assembly sponsor. “If you choose to not vaccinate your child, therefore potentially endangering other children … then you’re the one choosing not to send your children to school.”

Hundreds of parents of unvaccinated children gathered at New York’s Capitol for the vote to protest.

Stan Yung, a Long Island attorney and father, said his Russian Orthodox religious views and health concerns about vaccines will prevent him from vaccinating his three young children. His family, he said, may consider leaving the state.

“People came to this country to get away from exactly this kind of stuff,” Yung said ahead of Thursday’s votes.

Supporters of the bill say religious beliefs about vaccines shouldn’t eclipse scientific evidence that they work, noting the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 1905 that states have the right to enforce compulsory vaccination laws. During the Assembly’s floor debate, supporters brought up scourges of the past that were defeated in the U.S. through vaccines.

“I’m old enough to have been around when polio was a real threat,” said Assemblywoman Deborah Glick, D-Manhattan. “I believe in science…. Your personal opinions, which may be based on junk science, do not trump the greater good.”

If I understand it correctly, the stated need for immunization (to keep the unimmunized public from catching illnesses virtually wiped out by vaccination campaigns) is nothing more than an exercise in Nanny Statism. That is, if vaccines work, then the people (and their children) who are endangered by not being vaccinated are those choosing to honor their religious traditions.

These laws impose an undesired cure to an almost eradicated disease in violation of these people’s religious liberty.

What will be next? Will they impose the Equality Act, requiring all to accept all phases of the trans agenda in violation of religious convictions?

  1. c. Migrant Detention Centers Are Getting Slammed with Mumps, Chickenpox, Measles, TB, …

Unlike American schoolchildren, the children from Honduras, Nicaragua, and other Central American nations do not receive regular vaccinations. Therefore, when they flood our southern border, the possibility of an outbreak exists. Hence, a 4 June 2019 Vice News article reports on how immigrant have been quarantined in over 30 ICE centers for mumps.

Immigrants have been quarantined in over 30 ICE detention centers across the U.S. for mumps and a few cases of chickenpox in recent months, according to a Quartz investigation into information shared by attorneys.

Why it matters: Mumps is from a fast-spreading but relatively mild virus that sometimes causes serious complications. But the people who are quarantined also are not allowed access to their attorneys and cannot attend bond or asylum proceedings, Quartz points out.

By the numbers: Quartz found nearly 300 confirmed cases of mumps in ICE facilities and other immigration detention centers across the country — with the most cases concentrated in Texas, Mississippi, Arizona and Georgia.

ICE_Detention_Center

Yes, but: Not all state or county health departments monitor disease outbreaks in ICE facilities. Louisiana and California “said they had no data on disease in ICE facilities,” Quartz reports — so the case numbers could be higher.

Where it stands: “Local health authorities tasked with keeping civilian populations in their areas safe said they have no idea how widespread the mumps epidemic is in immigration facilities around the US,” Quartz reports.

Of note: The recommended 2 doses of MMR vaccine is roughly 88% effective at preventing mumps, per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

This incredibly shallow article on the danger of unvetted illegal aliens and the diseases they can carry at least mentions a few of the diseases common to the ICE facilities.

This article doesn’t mention the numbers at the immigration detention centers who carry tuberculosis, scabies, or other common diseases.

Additionally, just as the previous articles do not explore the “Nanny State implications of requiring people to surrender their religious convictions due to the vaccination requirements of the state — this article does not explore why so many individuals break laws to enter the U.S. and thereby have been interred in detention centers during the Clinton, G. W. Bush, Obama, and Trump administrations.

  1. Pinterest Suspends Pro-Life Organization, Places it on Pornography Blocklist

The Daily Signal points out how Pinterest has stifled the free speech of Live

Pinterest has suspended the account of pro-life group Live Action, saying it violates the social media company’s policies on “misinformation.”

Alison Centofante, director of external affairs for Live Action, tweeted about the incident last week as the organization appealed Pinterest’s decision.


Pinterest_Suspends_Live_Action

“LiveAction.org” is the only pro-life website included on Pinterest’s list of banned websites, Centofante said in a tweet.

The nonprofit educates on, reports on, and investigates the abortion industry, according to its webpage, and seeks to inspire others in the pro-life movement.

Project Veritas, an undercover investigative journalism nonprofit, received and published information from Pinterest employee Eric Cochran, revealing the social media platform added Live Action’s website to a list of sites blocked for pornographic content.

The whistleblower has since lost his job at Pinterest and was interviewed Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” about his decision to speak out.

“I saw a big tech company saying quietly behind closed doors that they believe Live Action shouldn’t have a platform to speak. … I want them to have to say this explicitly,” Cochran told host Tucker Carlson.

When the framers of our Constitution created the Bill of Rights, they put the freedom of the press along with the freedom of religion in the First Amendment expecting that extra-governmental forces would work to keep the government honest. Part and parcel of this arrangement was that a free press would expose corruption within government and free churches would keep the populace both honest and demanding honesty from their government.

However, in an era where 97% of the “journalists, reporters, news editors or television news anchors” identified by the Center for Public Integrity in 2016 donated to Hillary Clinton, can we expect balanced reporting? In an time when a Harvard study found Trump to have received 93% negative coverage (compared to 41% negative coverage for Obama in the same study), can you expect balanced reporting?

2 Stories that prove abortion is not for reproductive health care


  1. Five Shocking Facts About New Illinois Late-Term Abortion Law

In a 12 June 2019 Christian Broadcast Network article titled “5 Shocking Facts About New Illinois Late-Term Abortion Law Called ‘Death Penalty’ for Viable Babies,” we find the horror that Democrats have laid out for the unborn and women.

govjbpritzker

Illinois Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed an abortion bill into law on Wednesday that expands The Prairie State’s abortion rights in profound ways.

The new law strips all rights from unborn children, changes the definition of the viability of a fetus, and legalizes abortions through all nine months of pregnancy, right up to birth.

Supporters of the new law say it’s needed just in case the US Supreme Court overturns its 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

But pro-life groups around the country quickly responded with shock, calling the new legislation extreme.

The Thomas More Society called the new abortion law the same as “legalizing the death penalty, with no possibility of appeal, for viable unborn preemies.”

“This law is the most radical sweeping pro-abortion measure in America and makes Illinois an abortion destination for the country,” Thomas More Society Vice President and Senior Counsel Peter Breen said in a press release. “The deceptively titled ‘Reproductive Health Act’ gives our state some of the most extremely permissive abortion laws of any state in the nation.”

The group says there are 5 shocking facts about the new law:

  • All licensing requirements for abortion clinics are abolished, and health and safety inspections ended, despite those inspections shutting down numerous dirty abortion clinics in recent years
  • Dismemberment abortions of “preemie” babies, who feel pain, without anesthesia, are legalized
  • Every private health insurance policy, including those for small churches and religious nonprofits, must pay for elective chemical and surgical abortions
  • Every unborn child, up to and even during birth, will now have NO legal rights in Illinois
  • Abortion is labeled a “fundamental right,” protected to a greater degree than Free Speech and other First Amendment rights

If abortion were reproductive healthcare, then:

  1. There would be a focus on providing clean and safe abortuaries for women (rather than removing the licensing requirements)
  2. There would be a focus on life, not the ending of a life. There is nothing reproductive about a procedure that ends in the death of a human.

The governor of Maine has signed a bill that lets health care professionals who are not doctors perform abortions.

Democratic Gov. Janet Mills signed the bill Monday – a bill she had introduced herself.

The new law lets nurse practitioners, physician assistants and others carry out abortions.

Only doctors can perform abortions in most states, for the safety of the woman. Critics say allowing more people to do abortions could make it more dangerous.

“Expanding who is allowed to perform an abortion does not expand the safety of the procedure,” Republican state Sen. Stacey Guerin said.

Fox News reported Maine will be the second state after California with a law allowing non-doctors to perform in-clinic abortions, according to Maine’s Office of Policy and Legal Analysis.

Maine is also working on a bill to use taxpayer money to fund abortions for Medicaid recipients. That could mean $375,000 worth of abortions each year.

Maine’s new law expanding abortion providers adds to the current contention surrounding abortion laws and procedures in the US.

  2. There would be a focus on providing more care (not less) to women who endure abortion.
