Your Second Amendment Rights Are Under Attack While You’re Looking At The Border

It’s amazing to me that when you report the truth about the Trump administration attacking your rights to keep and bear arms, which are supposed to be protected under the Second Amendment, some conservatives attack you as not supporting the president.  Well, I’ve never supported a president when I believe he is acting tyrannically and unlawfully, no matter the jersey he wears.  The same has been true with President Donald Trump.  While he has America’s eyes fixed on the southern border and wall building (forget the idea that the wall is being built on property that does not belong to the federal government per the Constitution – borders simply limit jurisdiction of justice), his administration has attacked the Second Amendment by illegally banning bump stocks, which Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah’s administration deemed legal; how’s that for irony?  Additionally, Trump has pushed for Red Flag gun confiscation laws following the Parkland shooting last February, which not only infringes on the rights protected under the Second Amendment, but also the rights protected under the Fourth And Fifth Amendments, and multiple Second Amendment advocate groups are calling him out on it.

Guns Owners of America has pointed out the danger and lawlessness of such “laws.”  Executive Director Erich Pratt wrote about William Barr and pointed out “secret courts” that usurp their authority to strip you of your writes.

Just to make it clear, under these Orwellian Gun Confiscation Orders [Red Flag laws and assault weapons bans], a “secret court” can strip a gun owner of his constitutional rights based on a showing as low as “reasonable” suspicion that the person is “dangerous.”

But that claim of “danger” need only be a subjective belief in the mind of the accuser.

The gun owner doesn’t even have to be accused of committing a crime. And yet, he can have his Second Amendment-protected rights suspended — in truly Minority Report fashion — even though he or she was NEVER going to commit a crime.

And this gun confiscation will be done without a jury trial … without legal representation before the court … without facing one’s accuser or being able to challenge the accusations — in short, without any Due Process.

GUN CONFISCATION ORDERS ARE DEADLY

In case you’re unfamiliar with these secret (ex parte) courts, when only the accuser is in the room, a judge will sign virtually any gun confiscation order that is put before him.

A New Mexico judge, for example, entered an ex parte order against David Letterman because a housewife alleged that he was sending her coded signals over her TV screen.

So the “secret court” proceeding will provide the excluded gun owner with no protection whatsoever against the suspension of a wide variety of constitutional rights.

The first thing the gun owner learns of the obliteration of his Second, Fourth, Fifth, and Fourteenth Amendment rights is the “knock-on-the-door” in the middle of the night by police, ready to ransack his house, and, if he resists, to arrest or kill him.

Everyone remembers Gary Willis of Ferndale, Maryland, who was shot to death when he answered his door at 5:17 a.m due to unconstitutional red flag gun confiscation “laws.”

Recently, the National Association for Gun Rights has also called out the administration after the US Senate confirmed swamp creature William Barr as Attorney General.

…one year after the horrific tragedy in Parkland, Florida, the White House is once again caving to the demands of the gun grabbers by endorsing these “Red Flag” laws.

It took nearly 10 months for the Federal Commission on School Safety, established by the Trump Administration in the wake of the Parkland shooting, to release their recommendations.

One of these recommendations was an endorsement of national “Red Flag” laws like the ones being used to confiscate legally owned guns from law-abiding citizens in states like Maryland and California.

From the Federal Commission on School Safety report:

“Other recommendations include encouraging states to adopt laws permitting “extreme risk protection orders” (ERPOs), which can prevent individuals who pose a threat to themselves or others from possessing or purchasing firearms. The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Public Access Line—a critical component of the FBI’s efforts to keep Americans safe—has undergone changes to improve the process for receiving and evaluating tips from the public.”

Of course, what is not being reported is how “Red Flag” laws STRIP law-abiding gun owners of the right to keep and bear arms without due process.

In fact, gun confiscation laws currently in place at the state level have already led to the death of one gun owner on his doorstep in Maryland.2

With a mere accusation — and with no due process or presumption of innocence — an anti-gun family member, ex-partner, neighbor or other acquaintance (depending on the state) can ask the government to seize legally owned guns from law-abiding citizens.

A simple claim someone is “crazy” or “dangerous” because they support the Second Amendment is all it takes.
In technical terms, they call it an ex parte order.

In reality, it’s a rubber stamp followed by a SWAT team raiding the gun owner’s home at five in the morning.

Make no mistake, “Red Flag” gun confiscation laws (sometimes called “ERPO’s”) are the first step towards the mass gun confiscation schemes seen across the globe.

And while there is hope U.S. Senate Republicans will hold the line against the most draconian of gun control schemes, this endorsement from the Trump White House may be the excuse weak-kneed Senators were looking for to get behind gun confiscation on the federal level.

To make matters worse, the U.S. Senate just confirmed President Trump’s Attorney General nominee, William Barr.

Attorney General Barr has a long history of supporting gun control, doubling down on his track record by siding with Dianne Feinstein on her Assault Weapons Ban in addition to national “Red Flag” laws.

“We need to push along the ERPOs so that we have these red flag [gun confiscation] laws…this is the single most important thing I think we can do in the gun control area.” —William Barr, Attorney General Nominee 1/15/19

Now, as some of the most unconstitutional gun control laws in history are making their way through Congress, Speaker Pelosi and Senator Feinstein can count on the support of President Trump and his administration’s top prosecutor.

Author David Risselada has also warned time and again about the danger of unconstitutional Red Flag gun confiscation “laws.”  He writes:

It is important to understand that Red Flag laws, while seeming to be necessary to prevent a dangerous individual from obtaining weapons, are ripe for abuse. It is the language of the bills along with the developing narrative to which you have to pay attention. For example, in HR 5717, one of the listed criteria for issuing an Extreme Risk Protection Order is if the individual in question poses a significant danger to themselves or others by possessing a firearm. If a person is that much of a danger to themselves or others wouldn’t that be the case even if they didn’t have firearms? After all, according to the FBI, more people are murdered with clubs and hammers than rifles. Confiscating their firearms on mere speculation will do nothing to prevent them from murdering if that is what they intend to do. Furthermore, as far as the left is concerned simply owning a firearm is enough to have you considered a threat to yourself or others. Especially if you understand their worldview.

Every time there is a mass shooting we are treated to hours of propaganda describing how the individual involved obtained his weapons legally, or that the person stole them from a family member who was the lawful owner. This is purposeful, it is an attempt to plant the idea in the mind of the masses that guns in the hands of the public in general, pose a threat to all of us. They want your neighbor to fear you if by chance they see you loading up your AR-15 for a day at the range. Another common narrative is that the shooter was a well-known member of the community who nobody believed was capable of committing such an act. The message here is that anyone at any time can snap for no reason and that as long as there are guns in the hands of the public, we are all at risk. Finally, the new developing narrative is the failure of government systems to function as they should. Individuals purchasing weapons who should have been denied but the background check system failed. While logic dictates that gun control will always fail, the masses will see this as a need to implement more controls.

As the state becomes empowered to confiscate weapons from lawful owners more and more will naturally resist. Extreme Risk Protection Orders can be issued with no forewarning to the owner. Heavily armed agents will show up to individuals homes at zero dark thirty attempting to confiscate legally owned guns as was the case in Maryland where a man was killed in such a situation. As people resist, the narrative will slowly develop into one where all gun owners are a danger to themselves or others because they fear an encroachment on their rights.

(U//FOUO)  Proposed imposition of firearms restrictions and weapons bans likely would attract new members into the ranks of rightwing extremist groups, as well as potentially spur some of them to begin planning and training for violence against the government.  The high volume of purchases and stockpiling of weapons and ammunition by rightwing extremists in anticipation of restrictions and bans in some parts of the country continue to be a primary concern to law enforcement. 
   — (U//FOUO)  Returning veterans possess combat skills and experience that are attractive to rightwing extremists.  DHS/I&A is concerned that rightwing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans in order to boost their violent capabilities.  

If you’re worried about gun control, you’re already considered a threat to yourself or others. This is America’s Red Flag warning. The line we have all been drawing in the sand is being crossed.

Now, make no mistake about it, Democrats are just as anxious to rid you of your guns as this administration. The evidence is plentiful. However, keep in mind this warning from Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) that both parties are after your guns. Stop playing politics and look at the law!

Muslims Emboldened: List Of Islamists Looking To “Represent” You in 2020

Those holding to the false teachings of Islam are at odds not only with Christianity, which our country was built upon, but also against our Constitution.  Yet, with this last election, we saw many Muslims elected to office and in the coming election, we are sure to see many more.

The following is a list of Muslims who are already preparing to run for office to “represent” you.

Movita Johnson-Harrell is a candidate for Pennsylvania House of Representatives, District 190, in the general special election on March 12, 2019. Read more about Johnson-Harrell here.

Ali Saleh is a candidate for California State Senate in District 33. Saleh is running in the primary special election on March 26, 2019. Read more about Saleh here.

Ammar Campa-Najjar a candidate for Congress in California’s 50th District, for the 2020 election. Read more about Campa-Najjar here.

Imtiaz Ahmad Mohammad is a candidate for Florida House of Representatives, District 104, for the 2020 election. Read more about Mohammad here.

Dr. Mohammad “MoDar” Dar is a candidate for U.S. House of Representatives in Massachusetts, District 8, in the 2020 election. Read more about Dar here.

We’ll update the list as more file to run for office.

I ask, where are you Christian Americans who will stand and be counted and represent your people and faithfully execute your duty before God (Romans 13:1-5)?

Where are true, God-fearing Americans that take seriously the responsibility of the civil magistrate as the minister of God?  Where are those who seek to uphold the law rather than violate it like Rep. Ilhan Omar, Rep. Rashida Tlaib and Attorney General Keith Ellison?

Where are you Christians?  Are you willing to simply sit back and let your country be taken by antichrists? (1 John 2:22; 2:18; 4:2–3; 2 John 1:7).

If your idea is to simply live and let live and not war against the schemes of the devil and not bring forth the true Gospel that saves, along with opposing those who are at war with God, then your Christianity is missing something important.

I encourage you, if you believe you should move into the political realm to represent your people, as well as honor your Creator, I would implore you to do so.  Contact me, and I’ll support you as best I am able by the means God has given me.

New Social Media Site Launches: “Designed for Americanism, not Globalism”

Back in May of 2018, I reported on a conservative, Christian man named Steven Andrew from Silicon Valley, who was fed up with the Nazi-style censorship of Facebook and was going to start his own social media website, USA.Life.  Steven started a crowdfunding campaign at the time so that he would have the resources to not only launch the project, but maintain it and this past week, he did a soft launch of the social media platform, which he claims is “designed for Americanism, not globalism.”

So far, I’ve set up on the site with pages and groups, just like Facebook and other social media sites of which I’m a part.

Other than Minds.com, USA.Life is the only site I have not had any trouble posting to or running into glitches.  The site is steadily growing as I can tell from the reach I’m getting.

I have found the site to be responsive far faster than Facebook or any of the other social media platforms that I’m using.  Granted, that could be due to the amount of participants that Facebook has, but they are constantly adding code which also bogs down my computer.  USA.Life isn’t doing any of that.  I can have several of their pages open at the same time with quick response.

Andrew spoke out against the onslaught against conservative news that was branded as “fake news” in 2018.

After Steven Andrew had nearly 70 million people blocked from his posts by Facebook, he decided to use it as a positive thing and begin a brand new social media page, and the name of the new venture might be catchy to some, USA.Life.

Andrew said, “Facebook lied to Congress and America” during Mark Zuckerberg’s testimony before Congress in April.

Zuckerberg told Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), “We consider Facebook to be a platform for all ideas.”

However, Andrew says, “Zuckerberg misled Congress.”

“Facebook blocks more than 98% of my reach,” said Andrew.  “That means 4.9 million people per month are missing. Facebook increased censorship after President Trump was elected.”

Instead of communicating to 5 million people per month as in 2016, Facebook showed Andrew’s posts to 97,685 people last month. Andrew has almost half a million followers.

“Facebook’s censorship caused millions of fewer people to follow God and strengthen their families, a financial loss of donations likely in the millions of dollars and a reduction in communicating with millions of more people by email and our website,” he said.  “Facebook is anti-American, since they censor those who believe like the founders.”

“Freedom and privacy could be lost forever without USA.Life. However, we can save the Internet if 70,000 people give $10, or if 7,000 people give $100. If people want privacy, it is at USA.Life,” Andrew said.

In promoting the site, Andrew writes:

What if you could go from censorship to freedom? Imagine getting honest, real news instead of fake news. How secure would you feel knowing you can keep your privacy online?

You won’t be censored at USA.Life social network for believing like our founding fathers and supporting President Trump. After all, we know American beliefs are what make you safe, strong and blessed!

USA.Life is for all people who love America!

With USA.Life, you can discuss important issues that are censored elsewhere – such as life, the Second Amendment, border security, traditional marriage and liberty!

Our mission is to give you the most powerful social networking tools, privacy and real news. For too long, companies such as Facebook, Google and Twitter have used their bias to block people from getting true information. At USA.Life, we are the new alternative to social media that is biased in a positive way – toward the freedom and truth about the greatness of America and our people.

And members from all over the world have signed up for free accounts.

He then adds a very important aspect to social media, something that we have reported on before and that is the issue of privacy, something you simply won’t get with Facebook, Google, Twitter or YouTube.

We believe in liberty in our heart, so we don’t spy on you.

You deserve privacy! When you delete your information, we delete it. This is America!

According to Andrew, USA.Life is “designed for Americanism, not globalism.”

The platform allows you to fund it, so it truly is in the hands of the people.  If it’s a success, it’s due to users, not anti-Americans and those who hate freedom or Marxists.

There are a variety of levels that you can choose from to help fund this important project and it doesn’t take billions and billions for it to work.

Andrew also shows you where he is putting the money.

I can say from experience that in my brief time with USA.Life, Steven has even gone out of his way to help me on a personal level.  I’m not very marketing savvy when it comes to these kinds of things, but he has reached out to me to help me be successful there.

Additionally, he isn’t stopping there.  He’s also developing an alternative to Google called 1776Free, which he refers to as the “Pro-America search engine.”

Andrew told me via phone that he is working with a small team and that they are committed to providing good customer service and a good product for people to use.  Additionally, he pointed to the fact that while they didn’t meet their crowdfunding goal at first, they did put out the best product they could for the money and are looking to increase quality as funding becomes available.

Mr. Andrew also said that they are “cash positive” and don’t have any debt.

The company is also developing an app for the platform, which should help it grow exponentially.

To bring the USA.Life social network to the next level, with apps, smart recommendations, and expanded capabilities to provide an even stronger alternative to Facebook, Andrew is raising $190,000.

“Freedom and privacy could be lost forever without USA.Life. However, we can further save the Internet if 19,000 people give $10, or if 1,900 people give $100 today. If people want privacy, it is at USA.Life,” Andrew said.

As with any of these ventures in freedom to fight against the giants, there is always pushback and Andrew and his team have faced that, but believe that they will be successful with God’s help, and yours.

And lest you think Steven is part of a “fly-by-night” outfight, according to a statement, “Steven Andrew is a Silicon Valley technology and Christian leader, who loves America. What makes him unique is he passionately believes like our founding fathers that God gives us liberty. He has extensive business and technical leadership experience to the Fortune 500 and start ups, including for Cisco, Stanford, Sega and Better Homes and Gardens, where he has successfully led multi-million dollar initiatives.

Arkansas: House Legislature Adopts Resolution Calling On Law Enforcement To Suspend Contact & Outreach With Terror-Tied CAIR

At least some people haven’t given up the fight and are willing to call a spade a spade.  This is exactly what the Arkansas House of Representatives did on Monday as they adopted a resolution that calls on law enforcement in the state to “suspend contact and outreach with the Council on American-Islamic Relations.”

HR1006, sponsored by Republican Majority Whip Representative Brandt Smith, was read and adopted by the legislature on February 18, 2010, after first being filed on January 17, 2019.

This sends a pretty strong message to the designated terror group that the legislature wants no part of those who are supposed to serve the people to be entangled with them at all.

And just was the reasoning behind the resolution?

According to the text of the resolution it is due to CAIR’s history and ties to Islamic jihad groups, as well as multiple CAIR directors, employees and members who have been convicted on terrorism and terrorism-related charges over the years.

The text of the resolution reads as follows, culminating with the call on law enforcement agencies to cut off contact with CAIR.

WHEREAS, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has suspended all formal contacts with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (“CAIR”) due to evidence demonstrating a relationship between CAIR and Hamas, a designated foreign terrorist organization of the United States Department of State; and

WHEREAS, in United States of America v. Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, the largest successful prosecution of terrorism-financing in our country’s history, CAIR was identified as an associate of the Muslim Brotherhood and was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the trial; and

WHEREAS, CAIR opened its first office in Washington, D.C., with the help of a grant from the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, a charitable organization that was closed by the United States Department of the Treasury for funding jihadist terrorist organizations; and

WHEREAS, United States ally, the United Arab Emirates, officially designated CAIR as a terrorist organization in 2014; and

WHEREAS, in March 2011, Muthanna al-Hanooti, a director within CAIR, was sentenced to a year in federal prison for violating United States sanctions against Iraq under Saddam Hussein; and

WHEREAS, in 2006, the co-founder of CAIR’s parent organization, Islamic Association for Palestine (“IAP”), Sami Al-Arian, was sentenced to 57 months in prison on terrorism charges for financing Palestinian Islamic Jihad, a designated foreign terrorist organization; and

WHEREAS, in 2004, CAIR-Northern Virginia director Abdurahman Alamoudi pled guilty to terrorism-related financial and conspiracy charges, which resulted in a 23-year federal prison sentence; and

WHEREAS, in 2009, Ghassan Elashi, who served as a founding board member for CAIR’s regional chapter in Texas, was sentenced to a total of 65 years in prison after being convicted of 10 counts of conspiracy to provide, and the provision of, material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization; 11 counts of conspiracy to provide, and the provision of, funds, goods and services to a Specially Designated Terrorist as determined by the U.S. Secretary of the Treasury; 10 counts of conspiracy to commit, and the commission of, money laundering; 1 count of conspiracy to impede and impair the Internal Revenue Service; and 2 counts of filing a false tax return; and

WHEREAS, Randall Todd (Ismail) Royer, who served as a communications specialist and civil rights coordinator for CAIR and trained with and set up an internet-based newsletter for Lashkar-I-Taiba, an al Qaeda-tied Kashmir organization that is listed on the United States Department of State’s international terror list, was also indicted on charges of conspiring to help al Qaeda in the Taliban battle American troops were fighting in Afghanistan and was sentenced to 20 years in prison on April 9, 2004; and

WHEREAS, in September 2003, CAIR’s former community affairs director, Bassem Khafagi, pleaded guilty to 3 federal counts of bank and visa fraud, and agreed to be deported to Egypt after he had funneled money to activities supporting terrorism and had published material advocating suicide attacks against the United States, illegal activities that took place while he was employed by CAIR; and

WHEREAS, Rabih Haddad, the Ann Arbor, Michigan-based CAIR fundraiser, was arrested on terrorism-related charges and was deported from the United States due to his work as Executive Director of the Global Relief Foundation, which in October 2002 was closed by the United States Department of Treasury for financing al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations,

NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE NINETY-SECOND GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF ARKANSAS:

THAT the House of Representatives encourages law enforcement to suspend contact and outreach with the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Brandt warned in January that CAIR had a presence in surrounding states and sought to “infiltrate” law enforcement at the local and state levels with “training” that “desensitizes our law enforcement in how to respond properly to our Muslim community.”

Rep. Brandt added, “This is not an anti-Muslim resolution.  This is an anti-terrorism resolution.”

Following his brief comments, Brandt called on the Speaker to read the resolution in its entirety.

I’m glad he did distinguish between the two.  It is one thing for a person to be born into a Muslim house or even come from a Muslim country.  It is quite another to believe the lies and wicked teachings of the Koran and seek to carry them out into the world.

Well done, Arkansas!

Jussie Smollett Is A Complete Idiot & So Are The Media Outlets That Reported His Hoax As Fact

One has to seriously wonder if self-proclaimed pontificators of “nutrition labels,” NewsGuard will be revoking any of the “green badges” of sites they have deemed “news healthy” after this entire “conspiracy theory” perpetrated by actor and musician Jussie Smollett.  I won’t hold my breath, but as always, Paul Joseph Watson provides incredible commentary on the Smollett hoax.  Irresponsible news outlets, which NewsGuard tells you that you can trust, reported it as fact, but once the truth was known, didn’t retract their stories but doubled down and blamed Trump supporters.

If you are looking for someone who hits the nail of this story square on the head, take a look at this video commentary, and don’t forget this story is the epitome of fake news.

The real question behind all of this is, will Jussie Smollett be held accountable for his crime?  Furthermore, will news propaganda outlets be held accountable for their outright lies and irresponsible reporting, along with so-called fact-checkers who proclaim them as pure, transparent and responsible as they would have us believe their standard is?

Probably not, but then again, you already knew that.

Southern Baptist Churches In Trouble After Decades Of Sexual Abuse Allegations & Nearly 1,000 Victims

On a biblical level, the Bible calls the Church to deal with sin in its midst privately and call for repentance (cf. Matthew 18).  However, when the Church fails to do its duty, then instead of bringing about repentance, it allows sin to flourish and it seems the Southern Baptist Convention is coming under attack for decades of sexual abuse and over 700 victims that, for the most part, no one really did anything about.

The Houston Chronicle lays out a pretty damning story about the SBC that has largely come to pass because the convention does not hold its member churches to account for either doctrine nor the practice of discipline.

According to the report:

In all, since 1998, roughly 380 Southern Baptist church leaders and volunteers have faced allegations of sexual misconduct, the newspapers found. That includes those who were convicted, credibly accused and successfully sued, and those who confessed or resigned. More of them worked in Texas than in any other state.

They left behind more than 700 victims, many of them shunned by their churches, left to themselves to rebuild their lives. Some were urged to forgive their abusers or to get abortions.

About 220 offenders have been convicted or took plea deals, and dozens of cases are pending. They were pastors. Ministers. Youth pastors. Sunday school teachers. Deacons. Church volunteers.

Nearly 100 are still held in prisons stretching from Sacramento County, Calif., to Hillsborough County, Fla., state and federal records show. Scores of others cut deals and served no time. More than 100 are registered sex offenders. Some still work in Southern Baptist churches today.

Journalists in the two newsrooms spent more than six months reviewing thousands of pages of court, prison and police records and conducting hundreds of interviews. They built a database of former leaders in Southern Baptist churches who have been convicted of sex crimes.

The investigation reveals that:

• At least 35 church pastors, employees and volunteers who exhibited predatory behavior were still able to find jobs at churches during the past two decades. In some cases, church leaders apparently failed to alert law enforcement about complaints or to warn other congregations about allegations of misconduct.

• Several past presidents and prominent leaders of the Southern Baptist Convention are among those criticized by victims for concealing or mishandling abuse complaints within their own churches or seminaries.

• Some registered sex offenders returned to the pulpit. Others remain there, including a Houston preacher who sexually assaulted a teenager and now is the principal officer of a Houston nonprofit that works with student organizations, federal records show. Its name: Touching the Future Today Inc.

• Many of the victims were adolescents who were molested, sent explicit photos or texts, exposed to pornography, photographed nude, or repeatedly raped by youth pastors. Some victims as young as 3 were molested or raped inside pastors’ studies and Sunday school classrooms. A few were adults — women and men who sought pastoral guidance and instead say they were seduced or sexually assaulted.

Several accounts of victims are presented in the piece.  However, it’s ironic that a former attorney for the Roman Catholic Church, Thomas Doyle, would be referenced as warning the SBC to act on the claims of abuse.

A priest and former high-ranking lawyer for the Catholic Church, Doyle in the 1980s was one of the earliest to blow the whistle on child sexual abuse in the church. But Catholic leaders “lied about it … covered it up and ignored the victims,” said Doyle, now retired and living in northern Virginia.

Doyle turned to activism because of his experiences, work that brought him closer to those abused in Southern Baptist churches. Their stories — and how the SBC handled them — felt hauntingly familiar, he said.

“I saw the same type of behavior going on with the Southern Baptists,” he said.

The responses were predictable, Doyle said. In one, Frank Page, then the SBC president, wrote that they were “taking this issue seriously” but that local church autonomy presented “serious limitations.” In March, Page resigned as president and CEO of the SBC’s Executive Committee for “a morally inappropriate relationship in the recent past,” according to the executive committee.

Details have not been disclosed, but SBC officials said they had “no reason to suspect any legal impropriety.” Page declined to be interviewed.

And there is the problem.  While local Churches are governed locally, they must be accountable, which is where a Presbyterian form of government, which is what our Republic is based on, is far more biblical than that of the SBC.

In another report, on Monday, president of the Southern Baptist Convention Ed Young called for a “season of lament, sorrow, and repentance” over a sexual abuse crisis.

However, while young cited at least 10 churches , including Second Baptist Church in Houston, to be scrutinized for their handling of sexual buses and removal from the SBC, there really is no mechanism that the SBC has in place to remove them.

The ten churches he mentioned are:

“Brothers and sisters, there is a problem,” current president J.D. Greear said at a speech to other SBC leaders in Nashville. “This is not a fabricated story made up by people with a secular agenda. We’ve not taken reports of abuse in our churches as seriously as our gospel demands, and sometimes even worse, outright ignored or silenced victims.”

“It’s time we back up our words with actions,” he added.

According to Second Baptist, it “takes allegations of sexual misconduct or abuse very seriously and constantly strives to provide and maintain a safe, Christian environment for all employees, church members and guests… our policy and practice have been and will continue to be that any complaint of sexual misconduct will be heard, investigated and handled in a lawful and appropriate way.”

OK, but do they follow Matthew 18 or do they follow 1 Corinthians 5?  If not, then they are not taking things seriously.

It is sad that even in the Church we deal with sin, but the Bible has given us instructions on how to deal with it, if only we will.

The Roman Catholic Church has been involved for decades and centuries in the coverup of sexual sins, including among their popes.  Sadly, many denominations in the Protestant community are unwilling to follow the prescriptions found in the Bible that would deal with these issues.

What will comes of this?  Who knows, but if the Church fails to do its duty, rest assured, someone else will.

Ilhan Omar Won’t Assimilate – Rebuffs Claims That America’s Foundation Of Christian Culture & Law As “Silly”

Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) continues to thumb her nose at the American people as we continue to tolerate her wicked ideology of Islam and her clear anti-American rhetoric.  In a series of tweets back in 2012, it was captured that she rebuffed those that called for Somalis such as herself to assimilate into the society and culture of America.  Omar even went so far as to call the claim that American culture is based in “Judeo-Christian culture and law.”

Now, while I have some bit of problem with the term “Judeo-Christian,” I get the point that is being made and don’t really have an issue with that.  The point is that American culture and society was based upon the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament, not the Koran, not the Book of Mormon, the Bhagavad Gita or any other religious texts, but the Word of God.

In understanding how America was founded and its laws written, one only need to look to the Mayflower Compact to understand the direction our forefathers set before us.

IN THE NAME OF GOD, AMEN. We, whose names are underwritten, the Loyal Subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord King James, by the Grace of God, of Great BritainFrance, and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith, &c. Having undertaken for the Glory of God, and Advancement of the Christian Faith, and the Honour of our King and Country, a Voyage to plant the first Colony in the northern Parts of Virginia; Do by these Presents, solemnly and mutually, in the Presence of God and one another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil Body Politick, for our better Ordering and Preservation, and Furtherance of the Ends aforesaid: And by Virtue hereof do enact, constitute, and frame, such just and equal Laws, Ordinances, Acts, Constitutions, and Officers, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the general Good of the Colony; unto which we promise all due Submission and Obedience. IN WITNESS whereof we have hereunto subscribed our names at Cape-Cod the eleventh of November, in the Reign of our Sovereign Lord King James, of EnglandFrance, and Ireland, the eighteenth, and of Scotland the fifty-fourth, Anno Domini; 1620.

However, watch as Omar demonstrates that it is not Somalis that need to assimilate into American culture, but that Americans need to bow to theirs.

A woman suggested that Somalis leave their culture at the door when they enter the US, and Omar replied:

totally disagree America is a melting pot of cultures. Our values is one of inclusion and acceptance!

The woman then replied to Omar:

As long as the law of the land is followed there will be peace and harmony. No rituals like honor killing

Omar replied:

what does honor killing have to do with Somali culture?

The woman replied:

Nothing to do with Somali Culture. Some people DO want to force there culture or beliefs on their hosts.

Omar replied:

I am talking about American values that this Mayor doesn’t get. Somalis aren’t the problem, the mayor is!

Omar added:

those with problem don’t have a sense of culture & diversity. Being American means being yourself ????

Another Twitter interjected:

As long as our AMERICAN culture is respected. That is based in Judeo-Christian culture and law.

Omar thumbed her nose at the claim:

Lol, now that’s just silly

Here are screenshots of the tweets.

It’s these kinds of treasonous people that will be the downfall of the US if we don’t first repent ourselves and then start bringing justice against them.  Why has she not been impeached, Minnesota?  How many of you people there continue to support her?  What about the rest of America?  She influences us too in her position as a US representative.

Why Are These 3 “Pro-Life” Charlatans In Oklahoma Opposing An Abortion Abolition Bill?

If you wonder why America can’t seem to outlaw abortion, it’s often because of politicians who claim to be “pro-life,” and yet, are more comfortable regulating the murder of the unborn rather than stopping it.  The latest evidence of this comes from Oklahoma, a state that had the opportunity to elect a governor who ran on the platform of abolishing abortion, but failed to do so.  National Right to Life Vice President Tony Lauinger, and because of pro-life State Senators Jason Smalley (R-Stroud) and Greg Treat (R-Oklahoma City). Lauinger, who also is President of Oklahomans for Life, and their allies in the legislature have constantly opposed an abortion abolition bill while claiming they are pro-life.

SB13 has been opposed by these men who are masquerading as though they are pro-life, when in reality, they are demonstrating that they are pro regulating abortion.  In other words, they are deceivers.

The Abolition of Abortion in Oklahoma Act” reads in part:

“It is the intent of the Legislature to provide to unborn children the equal protection of the laws of this state; to establish that a living human child, from the moment of fertilization upon the fusion of a human spermatozoon with a human ovum, is entitled to the same rights, powers, privileges, justice and protections as are secured or granted by the laws of this state to any other human person; and to treat as void and of no effect any and all federal statutes, regulations, executive orders and court rulings, which would deprive an unborn child of the right to life.”

The Resurgent reports on the men named above as the real reason that abortion remains “legal,” even though it is actually unlawful.

These men, along with their allies in Oklahoma’s legislature, have committed to not hearing SB13, sentencing to death the roughly 5,000 babies who will be murdered in the state this year. In an article at The Oklahomanpublished on Saturday, Smalley and Treat explained that SB13 will not be heard in committee because it is unconstitutional. They’re wrong. The United States Constitution does not contain a right to murder a baby in the womb and no serious individual claims otherwise. According to former Dean of Stanford Law John Hart Ely, himself a supporter of abortion, “[Roe] is not constitutional law and gives almost no sense of an obligation to try to be.” Roe was a transparent power grab by a court intent on becoming the engine of societal upheaval.

In 2016, Lauinger wrote a letter advising senators against supporting SB1118 (the 2016 version of SB13) because ending abortion would repeal the pro-life regulations Lauinger helped pass. A five-part video series showed Lauinger in a tense confrontation with supporters of SB1118 further explaining his reasoning. In doing so, Lauinger either outed himself as the densest lobbyist in the country, not understanding that to end abortion, you have to get rid of regulations that allow abortion, or he is admitting that his priority is not ending abortion but maintaining his own legislative victories. There is simply no other explanation for his opposition. Lauinger continues to lobby against SB13 today.

According to The Oklahoman, Treat also said that passing SB13 and then losing a legal challenge could “hurt the pro-life movement.” This idea comes straight from Lauinger who has fraudulently argued that a hostile judge could strike down the parts of SB13 that end abortion while upholding the parts of SB13 that repeal pro-life regulations. Line 19 of page three makes SB13 inseverable. Lauinger and Treat either haven’t read the bill or aren’t being truthful.

Keep in mind that Smalley is chairman of the Oklahoma Senate Health and Human Services committee where SB13 has been assigned and Treat is the Pro Tempore of the Oklahoma State Senate.

Oklahoma State Senator Joseph Silk (R-Broken Bow) is the author of the bill.  He has previously put forth legislation to abolish abortion alongside his counterpart in the House.  However, “pro-life” then Governor Mary Fallin vetoed the legislation.  Some pro-lifer, eh?

For Silk’s part, he is much like former Oklahoma Senator Randy Brogdon, who repented of trying to regulate abortion,  he has begun to push for the complete abolition of it.

“The Senators who oppose SB 13 have zero knowledge of the Constitution and how our republic is supposed to work,” Silk said. “They believe that the courts are all powerful and can decide whatever they like whether it is constitutional or not. They also have no intention of doing what they campaigned on and actually protect innocent life.”

Posted by Free the States on Friday, December 21, 2018

That’s exactly right.  Let’s call them what they are:  cowards, criminals and controlled opposition.

The Resurgent seems to get this point too.

Smalley and Treat are participating in the charade that pro-life politicians have been putting on for some time. They claim their hands are tied, ignoring the fact that their oath is to the Constitution, not the Supreme Court. Their oath to the Constitution obligates them to ignore Roe v Wade. When the Supreme Court so egregiously and intentionally violates the Constitution as to legalize murder, the only appropriate response is to tell the court to pound sand.

Indubitably, all fifty states are presently in defiance of the United States Constitution. If Smalley and Treat have read the Constitution, they know this. By allowing abortion, they mock their oath of office and rebuff their Creator.

State legislatures allowing nine justices’ unconstitutional, arbitrary, and evil whims to rule the union is anarchy. Rejecting the court to re-institute the inalienable right to not be murdered would be a return to the Constitution. Nothing less than abortion’s total abolition and Roe’s total nullification will satisfy the demands placed upon us by the Constitution and Declaration of Independence, and most importantly the sixth commandment.

If Smalley and Treat subject their constituents to the tyranny of the Supreme Court and Oklahoma’s babies to the abortionist’s knife, they should be primaried by people who aren’t cowards.

Silk also believes that if the bill is put to a vote, it would pass.

“If SB 13 came to a committee or full Senate vote it would pass with a majority,” said Silk. “The Oklahoma Senate is overwhelmingly pro-life Republicans in public and votes, however [Smalley and Treat] will do whatever they can to keep it from coming to a vote because they don’t want to [do] something that is controversial and impactful.”

“The biggest thing in way of SB13 is [Smalley] not willing to give it a committee hearing,” he added.  “He claims to be a conservative Christian who believes that life begins at conception and he is refusing to even allow SB13 a hearing in his committee.”

Oklahoma isn’t the only state pushing for the abolition of abortion either.  The momentum is shifting in several states to stop attempting incrementalism and simply uphold the law, which is to guard the right to life, first and foremost, as recognized in the Declaration of Independence.

Among states advancing abolition bills are Idaho, Indiana, OhioTexas, and South Carolina.

We need to pray for these men advancing these bills and support them with our votes and our encouragement.  The lives of millions of Americans are at stake!

May God break the hearts of these “pro-life” charlatans and grant them true repentance (2 Tim. 2:24-26) to do what is right, or may He break their teeth in their mouths (Psalm 58:6) while they continue to war against him for what seems to be their own political and monetary gain.

Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar To Fundraise For Designated Terror Group

In 2014, the United Arab Emirates designated the Hamas-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) as a terror group, and the senators in the US have been pushing to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terror organization, which would also include groups in the US like CAIR.  Still, Muslim Representative Ilhan Omar, who once sought leniency for Islamic State terrorists, will be fundraising with CAIR.

On March 23, Omar will speak at CAIR-Los Angeles’ 4th Annual Valley Banquet, where tables will cost $500.

“CAIR-LA is honored to have Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) as the featured speaker for the 4th Annual Valley Banquet,” reads a press release from the Los Angeles chapter of the group that was formed as a Hamas support network in the United States.

According to the Daily Caller:

Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar is scheduled to raise money in March with the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) only a week after she used an anti-Semitic trope to claim Israel has paid for GOP support.

Omar will be the keynote speaker at CAIR’s 4th Annual Valley Banquet on March 23 to discuss advancing justice and empowering Muslims, according to the organization’s invitation. Single tickets start at $55 per person and a table can cost upwards of $500.

Hassan Shibly, the chief executive director for CAIR-Florida, will also be speaking at the event. Shibly has emphatically stated that Hezbollah and Hamas are not terrorist organizations, reported Jordan Schachtel at Conservative Review.

Hussam Ayloush, the chief executive director for CAIR-LA, who is hosting the event, compared the state of Israel to the Islamic State during a speech in April. Shibley has repeatedly echoed those sentiments and spread propaganda describing U.S. armed forces as radical terrorists.

Conservative Review points out some of the anti-American ideologies of those mentioned above.

She will deliver her address alongside CAIR-Florida director Hassan Shibly, according to a CAIR flier promoting the event. Shibly is a dedicated Islamist and bigoted gay basher. A fan of radical clerics, he has routinely refused to categorize U.S.-designated terror groups Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorist organizations, according to the Clarion Project. Moreover, Shibly regularly takes to social media to demonize the U.S. military as equivalent to the jihadi terrorists that they are fighting.

The director of CAIR-Los Angeles is Hussam Ayloush, who, like many CAIR executives, has disturbing Islamist views. Following the tragic San Bernardino terrorist attacks, Ayloush suggested that the United States was “partly responsible” for the ISIS-led attack on innocents in California. “Let’s not forget that some of our own foreign policy, as Americans, as the West, have fueled that extremism,” he added. Ayloush has in the past described U.S. military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan as part of a campaign to instill “fear of the Muslims.”

The hypocrisy of Omar is staggering too.  After blasting Jewish AIPAC over buying off politicians, even though the PAC doesn’t contribute to political campaigns, Omar is going to fundraise for an anti-American, pro-Sharia cult group like CAIR, which does contribute money to political campaigns, including hers.

Sara Carter reported:

According to the records of the Federal Election Commission, last summer Omar received nearly $60,000 from PACs.

One PAC from which Omar received thousands of dollars in 2018 is the Council on American Islamic Relations. CAIR was named as an un-indicted co-conspirator in the 2009 Holy Land Foundation trial, the largest terrorism-financing trial in American history.

And CAIR not only has a PAC, it is a lobbying organization. On Jan.10, CAIR hosted the Community Congressional Reception at which Omar spoke.

In all, Omar received tens of thousands of dollars from lobbying groups. None of her money came from AIPAC or the NRA or the fossil fuel industry; That must be a coincidence.

It’s called Taqiyya.  She’s simply lying and hope you don’t catch on, and so is CAIR.

CAIR’s people have constantly been involved with fake hate Muslim crimes, and have often pontificated that American law does not apply to them and that they are not here to assimilate but to conquer.

“If we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land,” -Herman Mustafa Carroll, executive director of the Dallas-Fort Worth CAIR branch

“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith but to become dominant.” -CAIR founder Omar Ahmad

It’s time people woke up and understood exactly what this criminal Muslima and CAIR are all about, and deal with them lawfully before it’s too late.

Microsoft’s NewsGuard Label Really Doesn’t Mean That Much As It’s Applied To Proven Hoaxes As Credible

I’ll be having another article dealing with one of my sites and NewsGuard’s “Nutrition Labeling” later this week.  However, just as I exited a phone conversation with NewsGuard Executive Director Eric Effron regarding the libel and lack of truthful “reporting” of the label, I discovered that NewsGuard is continuing to provide a clean bill of health to sites that are running with proven hoaxes as actual news stories, including the Jussie Smollet case.

Now, look, anyone can get NewsGuard’s little app and put it on your browser and see what they have to say about sites they’ve rated, and if you don’t want that and you use Microsoft browsers of their search engine, Microsoft will peddle their wares to you.

However, Breitbart, whom NewsGuard has also given a red badge indicating that it “fails to meet several basic standards of credibility and transparency,” just put out a report in which they claim, “Microsoft is so desperate to spread fake news and blacklist ideas it doesn’t like, NewsGuard is automatically included in one of its browsers.”

And what evidence does Breitbart present?  Hard verifiable evidence.  Take a look.

You will find more examples below, but here is NewsGuard’s seal of approval (on the Google search page) for Rolling Stone’s 2014 hoax about a gang rape at the University of Virginia (UVA).

Rolling Stone (which NewsGuard gave a passing grade) was eventually forced to retract the story and settle some lawsuits, but the far-left HuffPost’s aggregation of Rolling Stone’s proven lie is still live, and that green checkmark is NewsGuard’s way of telling readers they are reading something credible:

You see, when you do a Google search of stories, NewsGuard and Microsoft use the green checkmark to tell you what is and is not credible, what is and is not blacklisted, and this is NewsGuard giving the green light to a story that was so fake, it had to be retracted.

Compare that to NewsGuard’s labeling as fake news a basic news story like this one…

Why is NewsGuard labeling that fake news? Simply because Breitbart News published it. We didn’t even write that story. The AP did. We are simply aggregating the AP…

Look at the roundup below, which took less than 20 minutes to track down. Every single one of these stories is fake news, starting with BuzzFeed’s debunked lie about President Trump telling his then-personal attorney, Michael Cohen, to lie to Congress.

Look at how NewsGuard and Microsoft openly and audaciously deceive their readers…

The Washington Post’s debunked hoax about Russia hacking Vermont’s utility grid — credible!!

The lie about first lady Melania Trump being an illegal alien — credible!!

The lie about Trump changing the name of Black History Month — credible!!

The lie about Trump threatening to invade Mexico — credible!!

The lie about Congress investigating a Russian fund with ties to Trump — credible!!

So why? Why are NewsGuard and Microsoft deliberately marking fake news as credible? Why are they looking to fool people into believing proven hoaxes are legitimate stories — even outrageous ones about the first lady coming to the country illegally?

Ahhh, yes, but we are assured that NewsGuard is upright, and look, I don’t doubt there are some people there who are attempting to deal fairly, but the problem is that once they put their label on these sites carrying this demonstrable fake news and fabricated news, what does that do to NewsGuard’s transparency and credibility?  Hmmm?  Perhaps Mr. Brill or Mr. Effron would like to comment.  I’ve already emailed them both seeking a comment of how they have any credibility at all as an organization after this.

Personally, I don’t think a lot of people with pay any attention to what NewsGuard has to say, as more and more people are simply questioning everything and everyone, which is not necessarily a bad thing.

However, how does NewsGuard have credibility by putting a green “healthy” badge on CNN when we have documented evidence of decades of their fake news, fabricated news and bias?  They have a correction policy, but will they use it when it comes to the green badges they have applied to proven sites promoting hoaxes and fake news?  Probably not, just taking a look at CNN’s site demonstrates this.

The organization targeted one of my sites claiming the my site promoted “numerous false articles that promote disproven conspiracy theories,” which is simply not true.  However, they fail to address the biggest, debunked and politically motivated conspiracy theory of Russian collusion over the past two years by those sites they deemed as healthy for your minds to consume.  I’ll wait for a retraction from NewsGuard about those green badges for the majority of mainstream media that promoted it. I won’t hold my breath though.

Communist Bill de Blasio Corrects Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: “There’s Not $3 Billion In Money…”

“The goal of Socialism is Communism.” -Vladimir Lenin

It’s always interesting to watch Communists and Socialists interact in our society.  Often they are working towards the same un-American goals, but it’s even more interesting when a Communist mayor, like Bill de Blasio, goes on national television to correct a so-called Socialist “economist” like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on her inability to correctly understand tax breaks as somehow there being money in their place.  But he did, and said there wasn’t $3 billion in money.  Why?  Cause their incentives, not actual money.

While Ocasio-Cortez graduated with a degree in economics, which apparently hasn’t done her a bit of good, she claims the New York deal that was being worked out with Amazon that would have created 25,000 jobs and included $3 billion in tax incentives to the company just wasn’t a good idea because that $3 billion would have been better spent on teachers (hopefully, not ones that taught her economics courses), firefighters and other social programs (welfare).

Again, a simply understanding of economics would be nice from a woman with a degree in that area, but perhaps we are expecting to much from a possible Vice Presidential nominee.

As usual, Ocasio-Cortez was caught on video trying to put words to the clutter of whatever is going on in her head.  Be warned, you will want to pull your hair and the person beside you’s hair out when you watch this, but we’re growing accustomed to this with AOC.

“We should not be giving away our infrastructure, our subway system, our schools, our teachers’ salaries, our firefighters’ budgets, to a company that has not shown good faith to New Yorkers. And we can ask for more because we deserve more.”

Only, you don’t have any!  The entire American economy is based on debt, AOC!

However, even Communist Mayor Bill de Blasio had to explain that there was not any actual money to be spent elsewhere.

During an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” de Blasio agreed when host Chuck Todd said that the tax breaks offered to Amazon weren’t “money you had over here. And it was going over there.”

“Correct,” de Blasio said.

He added: “And that $3 billion that would go back in tax incentives was only after we were getting the jobs and getting the revenue.”

To further drive home the point, Todd said, “There’s not $3 billion in money —”

“There’s no money — right,” de Blasio said.

The exchange came after Todd suggested there was a “factual divide” that kept Ocasio-Cortez (D-Bronx) from understanding “how this deal worked.”

It seems that there are one of two things going on here:  AOC is getting a lot of press to get her name in people’s mind for a future political bid, similar to the usurper Barry Soetoro, or they are just letting her run along in hopes that she totally derails her own caboose while the Democrat establishment unhitch her from their own trainwreck.

In the end, either of these people will get us to where there is “no money” for anyone but government and the tyrants who will be in charge. Meanwhile, I say let them just eat each other.

Man Pulls Gun On Man Wearing MAGA Hat: ‘It’s A Good Day For You To Die’

A police report indicates that a man from Tennessee drew a gun on another man in Bowling Green, Kentucky who was wearing a Make America Great Again (MAGA) hat in a local Sam’s Club, put the gun in the man’s face and declared, “It’s a good day for you to die.”

WNKY reports:

James Phillips, 57, of Cottontown, Tenn., is accused of pulling a gun on the man inside the store Saturday after making an obscene gesture with his finger, according to his arrest citation.

Phillips, who was wearing a veterans cap, told police he made the gesture at the man and a woman with him because of the MAGA hats they were wearing, according to his citation. The man then confronted Phillips inside the store and an argument began.

That man then made the same obscene gesture to Phillips, according to the citation. At that point, witnesses told police Phillips pointed a gun at the man. That portion of the incident could not be seen on video surveillance.

Police encountered Phillips and the couple after being called to the Sam’s Club parking lot where multiple witnesses had called the police to report a man pulling a gun on a couple, according to his citation.

Callers told police the man, later identified as Phillips, told the woman, “it’s a good day to die b…..”

WBKO adds:

According to the alleged victim Terry Pierce, a man pulled a gun on him because he was wearing a Make America Great Again (MAGA) hat.

“I have as much right to wear that hat and support my country and my president as he has not to,” said Pierce.

Pierce tells 13 News that he was shopping with his wife when Phillips “Pulled a .40 caliber out and stuck it in my face, backed up and said, ‘It’s a good day for you to die.'”

Pierce went on to tell 13 News, “I said, ‘Then pull the trigger. Put the gun down and fight me or pull the trigger. Whichever one you want.’ And he backed up and he said it again, he said, ‘It’s a good day for you to die.'”

Pierce said the Phillips then took off. That’s when Pierce followed him out into the parking lot.

“I went out the front of the store to confront him again and that’s when I got him in his car. He couldn’t leave because his mother was still in the store. And we were having a verbal altercation outside,” said Pierce.

Pierce added, “He tried telling me I assaulted him and I said, ‘I never touched you.'”

Just gonna take a stab at it, but seems that since the hat is associated with President Donald Trump, that Phillips is more than likely a Democrat.

Phillips was apparently lawfully carrying a Glock .40, but then unlawfully brandished it and issued threats.

See that?  Unprovoked violence.

Police confirm that Pierce did not touch Phillips as they reviewed surveillance video.

While witnesses confirm Pierce’s account that Phillips pulled a gun on him, surveillance video doesn’t show it as Phillips backed out of view of the camera.

Phillips was arrested and charged for wanton endangerment first degree. Phillips is in the Warren County Regional Jail.

Call Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Out For Listing Boyfriend On Staff & Asking If He’s Being Paid – Get Suspended From Social Media

Once again, Twitter to the rescue to silence people who are demanding accountability for representatives.  The latest case involves writer Luke Thompson, who faced a temporary suspension for addressing the fact that Rep, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) had listed her boyfriend as staff and Thompson simply wanted to know if he was on the payroll, and in doing so, he countered AOC’s blow off of his questioning by providing data that seems to indicate that he is paid, which according to Twitter, violated their rules against posting private information.

Thompson started off by informing people about what AOC had done concerning her boyfriend Riley Roberts, including providing him with a government email address.

“While you were having a nice Valentine’s Day, @AOC decided to put her boyfriend on staff – drawing a salary on the taxpayer’s dime. Nice to see her adapting to the swamp so quickly,” he said.

Now, this isn’t some super secret information and it’s obviously not private.

Still, AOC rebuffed Thompson by tweeting, “Actually this cal designation is a permission so he can have access to my Google Cal. Congressional spouses get Gcal access all the time.  Next time check your facts before you tweet nonsense.”

Except there’s one little problem, Roberts is not her spouse.  They aren’t married.

Of course, Thompson was targeted by the vultures at Twitter and temporarily suspended, even though the tweet remains posted.

https://twitter.com/woodruffbets/status/1096441192697511936

Anyone see how they provided cover for AOC without actually removing the tweet?  Yep, I noticed it too.

Thompson didn’t let her off that easy and quickly started pointing out the facts for Ms. Clueless.

“He’s not your spouse. Is he being paid? At what level? It says “staff” not spouse or boyfriend,” he tweeted.  “Furthermore he doesn’t appear to be in any groups and the House doesn’t use Google. Are you giving him access to your official calendar? Why does he have his own email address?”

He also pointed out, “The House doesn’t use Google Calendar, and he’s in the staff directory as on her staff. She’s lying.”

Then the clencher, probably the thing that actually got him suspended.

Of course, Roberts immediately removed his LinkedIn account after Thompson pointed it out.

And it appears the “pretty little liar” is unwilling to address the facts presented to her that once again demonstrates she is so off the mental charts it’s unbelievable.  Right up there with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.  They both live in an echo chamber.

One tweet actually asked some questions that should be asked.

And yet another pointed out that the freshman might be engaging in more ethics violations.

This is what happens when you put the criminally minded in office.

Report: Bipartisan Spending Now Worse Than Under Bush & Obama

As we have now crossed the $22 trillion debt threshold, despite the fact that President Donald Trump claimed he would eliminate the US debt in eight years even as he’s helped to increase it by $3 trillion, we continue to see massive spending, much of it completely without constitutional authority.  With Soviet-style deficit spending, not only is our debt mounting, but we have military all over the world, have the largest prison population in the world, and have been moving towards a cradle to grave socialistic system, despite what the president said at the State of the Union.  In a new report, Daniel Horowitz points out that the “bipartisan spending binge is now worse than under Bush and Obama.”

Mr. Horowitz recounts some events that many of us remember all too well.

It feels like it was yesterday when I was watching the news as a kid with my parents in 1995, listening to Newt Gingrich, during the infamous shutdown fight, warn about the dire consequences of crossing the $5 trillion debt milestone. It feels like it was yesterday when I was writing press releases for candidates in “the year of the Tea Party” on how Obama and the Pelosi Congress took the debt to $14 trillion in such a short period of time. Now, over eight years into varying degrees of GOP control of Congress and the White House, we have crossed the $22 trillion mark, expanding the debt more rapidly than at any time in our history. Whereas the debt exploded by $5 trillion during Bush’s eight-year tenure, a shocking figure at the time, it has now increased $8 trillion just since Republicans controlled the House in 2011 and by $4 trillion over the past four years, since they controlled at least two of the three political organs of government.

Now, the only question Republicans have is how many pennies of border security they will fight for, while refusing to challenge any of the nonessential and even harmful programs of the federal government. The GOP platform on debt and spending is a lie from top to bottom, as Republicans plan to pass more budget bills allowing us to blow through the budget caps without any effort to systemically reform the way we budget.

Now that Republicans are planning to cave on border funding, can they at least force a confrontation with Democrats over spending levels for functions of government that are nowhere near as important as border security? Thus, departments like HUD, which were able to completely shut down for a month with nobody noticing, will continue to enjoy record spending. We will continue to provide security for Kabul and Baghdad with the beefed-up military budget since last year’s budget deal, but no funding for our border or meaningful use of the military to protect our own sovereignty from the daily incursions by the most brutal cartels on earth.

Why even have a Republican Party any more?

Good question.  They certainly are not adhering to constitutional principles any more than Democrats are for the most part.

However, Horowitz would go on to point out that while the job growth is the “most robust period” since the late 1990s, the spending continues, and as I’ve stated, much of it is completely unconstitutional.

Let it be known for all of time that dire predictions of revenue slumping as a result of the tax cuts were fake news. The entirety of the current deficit problem is due to increased spending.  According to the latest monthly report released by the Treasury Department yesterday, spending was up 9.6 percent for the first three months of fiscal year 2019 relative to the first three months of FY 2018. What about revenues? They actually rose slightly by 0.2 percent, despite some declines in certain revenue categories. This is an important statistic, because it is the first clean metric we have comparing a period of time with the tax cuts in full implementation to a period before the tax cuts.

Moreover, some of the increased tax revenue from more payroll taxes likely would not have occurred without the job creation spawned by the tax cuts. If you isolate the revenue tallies for individual and corporate taxes, the government obviously did lose some revenue in certain categories, but it was made up by a $15 billion increase in payroll tax revenue (FICA, Social Security taxes), in addition to increased revenue from excise taxes.

The annual deficit after just three months stood at $319 trillion, well on pace to smash the trillion-dollar deficit mark for the first time in a booming economy.

Thus, this bipartisan era of debt is worse than anything we’ve seen this generation, and it is all happening with record revenue and a booming economy – with no world war consuming our economy and budget.

Thanks to Republican-approved budget deals, for the first three months of the fiscal year, outlays for HHS are up 12.5 percent, outlays for the Department of Education spiked 23 percent, and outlays for the Department of Commerce have doubled! Meanwhile, outlays on Homeland Security have actually been down by 30 percent because of less disaster spending under FEMA than last year. But it’s not like we went on a spending binge for Border Patrol and ICE. Outlays on military spending are up 8.45 percent, but again, what is the purpose of the military if we use it everywhere else in the world except against those who most directly harm us at our own border?

Some people think we can just keep increasing government spending and there is never, ever going to be a reckoning day.  As Horowitz points out, just the net interest payments for the first quarter this year was $100 billion, which means $400 billion annually.  For Socialists, that means that those payments don’t knock one, thin dime off the debt.

What are the big items Horowitz points his finger on?  Healthcare is probably the biggest item, but it’s tied to so many other welfare programs like Medicaid, Medicare, and even Social Security.

What is driving the most debt? The issue where Republicans now agree with Democrats: socialized medicine. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., is now bashing the Freedom Caucus for opposing the key element of Obamacare responsible for driving up the cost of insurance, thereby generating the massive spending and the monopoly created by the health care industry.

Health care is the 800-pound gorilla in the room. Federal spending on health care (not including state expenditures) is projected to be $17 trillion over the next 10 years, dwarfing the cost of Social Security and the military. By 2047, health care spending will be about 25 percent greater than the insolvent and crushing cost of Social Security. As such, health care in itself is the largest driver of the other great crisis, as noted: the mushrooming cost of the interest on the debt itself. Health care spending alone will be greater than all the revenue from payroll taxes and corporate income taxes combined and almost as large as individual income tax revenue.

This is all going to the creation of a monopoly in a circuitous death spiral of price inflation and increased government spending. It’s no mystery why our national expenditures on health care have popped from $27 billion in 1960 to over $3.3 trillion today. Assuming health care would rise at the same rate as the rest of the economy, that number would be under $250 billion today. If we flushed $1.6 trillion down the toilet every year, we’d come out with a better result because we’d just waste money. Now, we are taking that wasted money and artificially inflating the cost of health care to the point that nobody can afford it without government continuing the death spiral of spending, monopolizing, and price inflation.

And lest you think that President Trump doesn’t want Socialized medicine in the US, he’s already told us he wants universal healthcare.

And let’s not forget President Trump’s promise of $500 million to cancer research.  Where is that in the Constitution?  Where is the money going to come from for “paid family leave” that he promised?  I’ll tell you that neither Congress nor the President has any authority to spend that money on those things.  I’ll tell you, it’s going to come from unconsitutional spending by the criminal politicians in DC, and Trump isn’t the only one to blame here.

Horowitz says at some point, Republican supporters need to assess their rate of return on the Republican Party, and I couldn’t agree more.  The question is, will the American people just keep going along with their favorite team because they wear their jersey, or are they going to educate themselves on the Constitution and start supporting that rather than their favorite political idols?

NewsGuard’s Investor Has Partnered with George Soros on Several Occasions

NewsGuard is the latest group of censoring, fact-checking, bias pontificating hypocrites to come down the pike. Many believe this group will save the people from their own ability to discern truth from error, all while touting that they are the beacons of truth and the determiners of who is transparent. But, over and over, as I have researched NewsGuard, I see bias and ties … and yes, George Soros.

While NewsGuard explicitly claims that they have “trained journalists who have spent [their] careers dedicated to the profession,” allowing you to “see the credentials and backgrounds of everyone responsible”,  and they have an “ethics of conflicts of interest policy,” while being “totally transparent about how they make all of their decisions,” the reality is that they are not being transparent about to whom some of their investors are tied.

Listed on their investor’s page is John S. & James L. Knight Foundation, Inc.

That name may not mean anything to you, but they have a history of taking money from none other than George Soros’ Open Foundation Society. Many rumors and conspiracies surround George Soros but with those put aside, it cannot be denied that he’s been behind a large majority of the left’s agenda and fight against the right. In other words, he’s firmly planted on the left and has made it his mission to destroy conservative thought. He’s been behind the funding of protestors at Kavanaugh’s hearings, in order to help them get out of jail, he’s given $246M to help partners organize the feminists’ Women’s March, given to Fusion GPS, the firm behind the Steele dossier, and he’s helped fund Media Matters, an organization who has a stated mission of “comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media”, on top of a plethora of other radical left organizations.

A search result of OpenSocietyFoundations.org came back with several key articles that involved the John S. & James L. Knight Foundation, Inc. Here are the results from that search:

The Transformational Leadership Retreat (2009) —

“The Open Society Institute Campaign for Black Male Achievement partnered with the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation to host its first annual Transformational Leadership Retreat. The retreat was conceived with the premise that “transformational times require transformational leadership.” Since May 2008, the CBMA has grown to include 26 grantee partner organizations—a diverse community of educators, youth leaders, policy advocates, community organizers, academics, and philanthropists. The Campaign for Black Male Achievement is acutely aware of the work its grantee partners are engaged in on a daily basis to improve the life outcomes of black men and boys and saw the need for a valuable space for reflection and renewal.

The Transformational Leadership Retreat was facilitated by Estrus Tucker of the Center for Courage and Renewal. During the retreat, close to 60 social justice leaders connected, recharged, and envisioned innovative ways to effectively respond to the opportunities to improve and increase opportunities for black men and boys in America.”

Campaign Celebrates Unsung Heroes Among Black Men and Boys (2011) —

“A new campaign launching today will highlight the stories of black men and boys—celebrating and supporting them as they lead others in strengthening their communities.

The first-of-its-kind effort will be piloted this year in two cities, Philadelphia and Detroit.

BME (pronounced Be Me) is supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the Open Society Foundations’ Campaign for Black Male Achievement. BME stands for Black Male Engagement.

“We want to shine a light on the brothers who help others achieve, who involve neighbors, friends and strangers in things that uplift the community,” said Trabian Shorters, Knight Foundation’s vice president for communities. “If you want to see more black men and boys solving problems and making decisions for the good of Detroit and Philadelphia, nominate them at bmechallenge.org, and let’s recognize them.”

TV and movies rarely feature stories of black males making time to positively engage with their communities. Their stories represent the true identity of many black men and boys—actively engaged community members who inspire those around them. BME strives to amplify the positive impact that black males have in their communities every day.”

The Impact of Digital Technology on Journalism and Democracy in Latin America and the Carribean (2010) —

“The Impact of Digital Technology on Journalism and Democracy in Latin America and the Caribbean is the report from the Austin Forum on Journalism in the Americas, held at the University of Texas, Austin, in September 2009.

The forum, which the Open Society Foundations co-sponsored with the Knight Center, hosted representatives from 18 countries to discuss the impact of the digital transition on the media industry, democracy and political reporting, investigative journalism, and new media.

The report uses qualitative analysis of the personal and organizational experiences of forum participants through the transition process. Among the topics discussed in the document are the use of social media; the need for digital training; dealing with online user comments; and the use of digital technology by governments to spy on journalists. The report also includes proposals for collaboration on training, new business models for investigative journalism, and dissemination of news on new media platforms.”

At first glance, you may be saying to yourself these are not necessarily bad things and some of these things occurred almost a decade ago. Fair enough, but the fact that they have partnered with this man, who has so many fingers in multiple entities on the left, should be a cause for concern, especially when they claim to promote transparency and objectivity. Additionally, the Knight Foundation has a lot of twisted ties. Even the mainly left-leaning Wikipedia states —

“While the Sandler Foundation provided ProPublica with significant financial support, it also has received funding from the Knight Foundation, the Carnegie Foundation, MacArthur Foundation, Pew Charitable Trusts, Ford Foundation, the Carnegie Corporation, and the Atlantic Philanthropies. ProPublica and the Knight Foundation have various connections. For example, Paul Steiger, president of ProPublica, is a trustee of the Knight Foundation. In like manner, Alberto Ibarguen, the president and CEO of the Knight Foundation, is on the board of ProPublica. In 2010, it received a two-year contribution of $125,000 each year from George Soros’ Open Society Foundations.

ProPublica has attracted attention to the salaries it pays its employees. In 2008, Paul Steiger, the editor of ProPublica, received a salary of $570,000. Steiger was formerly the managing editor at The Wall Street Journal, where his total compensation (including options) was double that at ProPublica. Steiger’s stated strategy is to use a Wall Street Journal pay model to attract journalistic talent. In 2010, eight ProPublica employees made more than $160,000, including managing editor Stephen Engelberg ($343,463) and the highest paid reporter, Dafna Linzer, formerly of the Washington Post ($205,445).

Engelberg is a former editor who co-wrote the non-fiction book Germs: Biological Weapons and America’s Secret War, with Times reporter Judith Miller.”

Let’s go a step further though.

In December of 2017, it was reported that Soros was also funding “journalism” in seven states in the U.S., and lo and behold the Knight Foundation was right there in the midst.

“ProPublica, the leftist publication that put out a hit piece tied to the Southern Poverty Law Center attacking the likes of Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, and Bradlee Dean, has taken millions of dollars from billionaire George Soros, and is now claiming to have chosen propagandists, sorry, journalists, in Louisana, West Virginia, Oregon, New Mexico, Indiana, Illinois and Florida to receive year-long stipends to pursue ProPublica-approved investigations.

Seeing that in this year’s hit piece they didn’t even bother to investigate whether the people they attacked were actually guilty of “hate”, I do believe these people hired will be nothing more than propagandists for ProPublica.

Seeing that the nonprofit organization launched Documenting Hate, a database of “hate crimes and bias incidents”, it’s no wonder they can’t distinguish true hate from fact telling.”

NewsBusters has more on the story —

“ProPublica has received millions of dollars from left-wing billionaire George Soros and other liberal foundations like the Knight Foundation, the Ford Foundation, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. It began operations in 2008 with a $10 million grant from the liberal Sandler Foundation. The Local Reporting Network project itself was funded by a $3 million grant from an undisclosed donor.

The liberal nonprofit outlet initially advertised the Local Reporting Network project in October 2017, calling on newsrooms that wanted to further ProPublica’s goal “to spur change through stories with moral force” to submit proposals for year-long projects ProPublica could fund.

The projects were chosen for funding “include conflicts of interest, housing, mental health care, criminal justice, and workplace safety,” ProPublica reported. ProPublica senior editor Charles Ornstein said each selected project “digs deep and holds power to account.” Ornstein will personally work with the selected reporters to guide the forthcoming reports.

The selected reporters are from The Advocate in Baton Rouge, LA, the Charleston Gazette-Mail in Charleston, WV, the Santa Fe New Mexican in Santa Fe, NM, the South Bend Tribune in South Bend, IN, The Southern Illinoisan from Carbondale IL, the Malheur Enterprise, in Vale, Oregon, and WMFE in Orlando, FL. The seven journalists were chosen from a pool of 239 applicants.”

The Knight Foundation pumped a whopping $5,952,500 into the Soros-tied ProPublica! According to the Media Research Center —

“The Open Society Institute is one of several foundations funding the Investigative News Network (INN), a collaboration of 32 non-profit news organizations producing what they claim is “non-partisan investigative news.” The James L. Knight Foundation also backs the network and is possibly the most-well-known journalism foundation. Knight President and CEO Alberto Ibargüen is on the board of directors for ProPublica.

INN includes the Investigative Reporting Workshop at American University, the liberal web start-up MinnPost, National Institute for Computer-Assisted Reporting, National Public Radio, and the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism. The network had included the liberal Huffington Post investigative operation among its grants, but HuffPo investigations merged with the possibly even more left-wing Center for Public Integrity, on whose board Arianna Huffington sits.

Liberal academic programs, left-wing investigative journalism and even supposedly neutral news organizations paid for by a man who spends tens of millions of dollars openly attacking the right. George Soros is teaching journalists that their industry has a future as long as he opens his wallet.”

Well, isn’t this just like the fox guarding the henhouse? And now, they’re investing in NewsGuard, which claims it’s interested in pure journalism and transparency? I don’t buy it for a minute and you shouldn’t either. This is about control. It’s about censorship at another angle. Put simply, it’s about poisoning the well and demanding the American people listen to NewsGuard rather than being intelligent, discerning human beings themselves.

I have always written and linked to sources, provided documentation, video or audio of the subjects I write on believing that those who take in the information have the good sense to do their own homework, to follow it up, to check it, and to then come to their own conclusions. I have always admitted my bias, because I’m guided by the Bible, first and foremost, followed by the Constitution, the law and the truth. These people aren’t interested in any of this. They are interested in doing what they can to undermine the foundations of America and they are using their grasp on media, websites, newspapers and social networks to do it.

How Nancy Pelosi Earned Her Fortune May Surprise You – Average Citizen Would Be Targeted For The Same Thing

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is rich, filthy rich.  She and her husband have accumulated a ton of wealth, but have not been so eager, like many Democrats, to part with it and put their money where their mouths are concerning giving to other to take care of needs.  Yet, she is among the first to misquote Scripture, like the devil, in order to use government to steal your resources to claim they are caring for their neighbor and doing what the Bible commands while doing nothing more than making sure they retain their power in DC.  A new report is out demonstrating that Pelosi has not only gained her fortune through legitimate means, although if we were to investigate even those might be called into question, but even some illegitimate means.

According to the House Press Gallery, House speakers earn an annual salary of $223,500, which amounts to a roughly $30,000 raise for Pelosi, who is now again the third-highest-paid elected representative in the federal government.

While Pelosi’s net worth varies depending on who is reporting, Roll Call’s most recent Wealth of Congress analysis claims the Speaker of the House is worth at least $16 million.  However, OpenSecrets puts her around $100 million.

Still, way under a person that Elizabeth “Fauxahontas” Warren deems worthy of a major tax increase.

However, her own financial disclosures indicate that she and her husband, Paul, own both a house and vineyard in California, and that the combined total are worth at least $5 million.  The vineyard brought in between $15,000 and $50,000 in grape sales to the Pelosis in 2017.

Pelosi also owns stock in Disney, Facebook and Apple.  No surprise there.

However, a large percentage of Pelosi’s money comes from Financial Leasing Services, Inc.

In all, Pelosi’s investments of her vineyard, stock, salary and property add up to an incredible income, but make her net worth at least $100 million.  And you people thought she wasn’t part of the one percent.

Back in 2011, Steve Kroft of “60 Minutes” exposed that she bought initial public offerings (IPOs) that earned hefty returns while she had access to insider information that would have been illegal for an average citizen to trade with.

“Undisturbed by a potential conflict of interest the Pelosis purchased 5,000 shares of Visa at the initial price of $44 dollars. Two days later it was trading at $64. The credit card legislation never made it to the floor of the House,” Steve Kroft of “60 Minutes” reported.

At that time, Pelosi was asked about her position as House Speaker and inside knowledge that she had to invest in IPOs.

Here’s how that went when Kroft confronted Pelosi at a regular press conference after she declined an interview.

Kroft: Madam Leader, I wanted to ask you why you and your husband back in March of 2008 accepted and participated in a very large IPO deal from Visa at a time there was major legislation affecting the credit card companies making its way through the —through the House.

Nancy Pelosi: But —

Kroft: And did you consider that to be a conflict of interest?

Pelosi: The — y — I — I don’t know what your point is of your question. Is there some point that you want to make with that?

Kroft: Well, I — I — I guess what I’m asking is do you think it’s all right for a speaker to accept a very preferential, favorable stock deal?

Pelosi: Well, we didn’t.

Kroft: You participated in the IPO. And at the time you were speaker of the House. You don’t think it was a conflict of interest or had the appearance–

Pelosi: No, it was not —

Kroft: — of a conflict of interest?

Pelosi: —it doesn’t — it only has appearance if you decide that you’re going to have — elaborate on a false premise. But it — it —  it’s not true and that’s that.

Kroft: I don’t understand what part’s not true.

Pelosi: Yes sir. That — that I would act upon an investment.

The Hoover Institution’s Peter Schweizer stressed that what Pelosi did was completely legal.

“There are all sorts of forms of honest grafts that congressmen engage in that allow them to become very, very wealthy. So it’s not illegal, but I think it’s highly unethical, I think it’s highly offensive, and wrong,” he told Kroft.

“… Insider trading on the stock market. If you are a member of Congress, those laws are deemed not to apply,” Schweizer added. “The fact is, if you sit on a healthcare committee and you know that Medicare, for example, is — is considering not reimbursing for a certain drug that’s market moving information. And if you can trade stock on — off of that information and do so legally, that’s a great profit making opportunity. And that sort of behavior goes on.”

Of course, Pelosi’s office issued a statement following saying, “It is very troubling that ‘60 Minutes’ would base their reporting off of an already-discredited conservative author who has made a career out of attacking Democrats.”

No, it’s troubling that a criminal, corrupt woman would use her position as Speaker of the House to make a ton of money when she would side with those who would criminalize that very thing if it were an ordinary citizen.

Can you say oligarchy?

Clearly, we need a special counsel to spend millions of American dollars to find out just how Pelosi acquired all her fortune and to determine whether or not she acted criminally.  We don’t need that really.  We all know this woman is as crooked as a dog’s hind leg and that she needs to not be given a gavel, but a noose and a long drop from a short rope.

Aurora, Illinois Shooting: Catalyst For Dem/Trump Unconstitutional Laws?

I’ve told you a perfect storm is brewing.  Democrats are pushing for more unconstitutional gun laws in the House, President Trump has remained silent as his ATF has unconstitutionally banned bump stocks, something that Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah’s ATF declared legal, and has called for unconstitutional ”
Minority Report“-esque Red Flag laws.  Now, there is a shooting that has left one dead and multiple people dead in Aurora, Illinois at Henry Pratt Company.

The City of Aurora tweeted out that an active shooter was in the vicinity of Highland and Archer.

Then, at 4pm EST, the city confirmed that the shooter had been apprehended.

NBC News reports:

At least one person is dead and multiple people injured after a shooting at a manufacturing company in Aurora, Illinois, on Friday afternoon. The alleged gunman was apprehended, authorities said.

Police officers responded with a heavy presence to reports of an active shooter at Henry Pratt Co. just after 2 p.m. CST on Friday. About an hour later, authorities said the suspected shooter had been apprehended.

The Kane County Coroner said one person died.

At least two people were admitted to the Amita Health/Presence Mercy Medical Center, the hospital told NBC News. There was no information on their conditions.

Two others are being treated at Rush Copley hospital with injuries that are not life-threatening.

ABC 7 added:

John Probst, a Henry Pratt employee who escaped the building, said he saw a man holding a pistol with a laser sight. He said he recognized the shooter as a coworker.

There would have been approximately 30 people in the building at the time of the shooting, Probst said.

Probst said he saw other coworkers injured and that the shooter was firing indiscriminately.

“Like I said, we were just scared”: Active shooting survivor describes escape

“One of the guys was up in the office, he said this person was shootin’, and, he come running down and he was bleeding pretty bad, and the next thing you know he was walking back and forth, I heard more shots, and we just left the building,” Probst said.

Probst said he and a coworker escaped through the back door. Probst said a nearby resident allowed Probst and his coworker to shelter in his home.

A SWAT team was also visibly in place and several ambulances were on the scene to deal with victims, but they were positioned away from the building.

The shooting comes one day after the first anniversary of the Parkland shooting, which we have yet to see actual video or picture of the alleged shooter inside the school such as we saw at Columbine. In fact, there were 70 cameras on the campus, but only 4 camera videos were ever released and not one video showed the shooter or any of the carnage alleged to have taken place.

The obvious question on people’s minds should be whether or not this will be used to attack your rights that are supposed to be protected by the Second Amendment and those that were just sworn into office uphold the very document that is supposed to bind them to do so, including President Trump.

What do you think?

Ohio: Muslim Charged With Plotting To Behead Trump’s Children

Ahhh yes, the religion of pieces, that Rep. Ilhan Omar, the useful idiot in Congress is courting, along with Socialists like Bernie Sanders.  A 49-year-old convert to Islam from Cleveland, Ohio is facing federal charges of threatening to murder President Donald Trump and his family.

23 ABC News reports:

A Maple Heights, Ohio man who was previously indicted on federal charges for allegedly planning a terrorist attack in Cleveland last summer has now been charged with additional crimes, including threatening to kill President Donald Trump and his family.

The new indictment supersedes the previous one from January that charged Demetrius Nathaniel Pitts, 49, with attempting to provide material support to al-Qaida.

In addition to the original charge, Pitts has now been charged with threats against the President of the United States, threats against immediate family members of the President of the United States and two counts of false statements to law enforcement.

Pitts is a U.S. citizen who uses the aliases Abdur Raheem Rafeeq and Salah ad-Deen Osama Waleed. Authorities said they learned about Pitts in January 2017 following comments he posted on photographs of a possible jihad training camp, according to court documents.

He was arrested July 2, 2018, after having several meetings with an undercover FBI agent who he discussed his plans with for an attack on Cleveland.

According to the indictment, in June 2018, Pitts threatened to kidnap the president and cut off his head and hands. He also allegedly threatened Trump’s family. The indictment states Pitts said he would, “Kill his kids. Kill his daughter, son-in-law. Kill ‘em all. He (the president) come out ‘cause you start killing his kids, chop their heads off… you send his kids back.”

The false statements to law enforcement charges came down because authorities say Pitts allegedly lied to the FBI about not having knowledge of a planned terrorist attack on Cleveland last year. Pitts also allegedly denied talking with an undercover agent who he believed was a member of al-Qaida.

The previous indictment was cited by Cleveland.com in July 2018, along with social media posts that he posted following the Paris jihad attack that left 137 dead in 2015.

Demetrius N. Pitts, who also went by Abdur Raheem Rafeeq, faces a charge of attempting to provide material support to al Qaeda, authorities said during a news conference at the FBI office in downtown Cleveland.

His plan was to pack a van with explosives and “strike at the values at the very core of our nation.”

The Facebook page was disabled about 10:20 a.m. Monday, shortly after the FBI press conference.

According to the affidavit, the Facebook page came to the FBI’s attention on Dec. 31, 2015, after he sent a private message to “The Craig Sewing Show,” a California-based political commentary program, stating: “F*** America and there arm[sic] forces. The USA will be destroy. Allahu Akbar.”

On Jan. 25, 2017, he used his Facebook account to comment on pictures believed to be from a jihad training camp. In February 2017, the FBI reviewed Pitts’ Rafeeq page and determined that the account was threatening violence against the United States.

Given Ilhan Omar’s history, I wonder if she will be petitioning for leniency for this guy.  Probably, but the media will never report it because she is one of their darlings.

More than likely, Pitts won’t be getting a steep sentence and will be back out in the freedom he so detests in America to plot more jihad murders.  Who knows, he may just want to be a Democrat congressman one day!

This is what you get when you don’t put Islamic dogs down like this for their murderous jihad plotting and actual murders.

Instead, America has unjustly treated them for years in a cage to proselytize others at the expense of Americans.  It’s time we get back to biblical justice in our country.

Senate Confirms Gun-Confiscating, Swamp Creature William Barr For Attorney General

Like I told you before, any chance of the real criminals in government being prosecuted is simply not going to happen, and with the Senate’s latest swamp creature being confirmed to the post of Attorney General, it only proves my point.  Hillary Clinton will not be prosecuted as you were promised by President Donald Trump and on top of that, William Barr totally ignores your rights when it comes to guns, among many other things.

First, Fox News reports on Barr’s confirmation on Thursday.

Attorney William Barr was confirmed Thursday to lead the Department of Justice once again.

Several Democrats — Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, Alabama Sen. Doug Jones and West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin — joined nearly all the Republicans in confirming Barr.

Barr, 68, served as attorney general under the late President George H.W. Bush in the early 1990s. A Republican, he is a lawyer with Kirkland & Ellis in Washington, D.C.

Now, while Fox News promoted five things that I assume they believe will give you confidence in Barr.  They listed:

  • He already held the post in the first Bush administration
  • He’s criticized the Mueller probe
  • He opposed Roe v. Wade
  • He worked for several corporations after his Justice Department career
  • He worked in the CIA

I’m not really sure that much of that is an advantage to being attorney general.  After all, shouldn’t what we be looking at in Barr be whether or not he understand the Constitution, not case law, and whether or not he will apply what the Constitution states rather than coming up with his own brand of justice.

We know he was one who pushed for mass incarceration during his time at attorney general under Bush, and we know incarceration is not justice, but is now a for-profit scheme in the prison industrial complex.

NBC reported:

Barr has historically supported mandatory minimum sentences and other tough-on-crime policies. But he may soften.

As attorney general, Barr released a report in 1992 called “The Case for More Incarceration” as a plan to control soaring crime rates. It became a template for policies that fed mass incarceration

Even as those views grew less popular, Barr held onto them.

In 2015, he joined dozens of former law enforcement officialsfighting a proposal that would have rolled back some mandatory-minimum sentences, among other reforms. By then, research had shown that punitive policies such as mandatory minimums tore families apart and left millions unable to get steady work, find housing or vote. But Barr and the other former officials said they worked. “Our system of justice is not broken,” the former officials wrote.

Sessions held similar ideas about crime fighting. He resisted reforms and rescinded Obama administration memos that called for leniency for low-level drug offenders.

After Sessions resigned in November, Barr and two other former attorneys general wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post praising those moves and “a job well done.”

A few weeks later, Congress passed — and Trump signed into law — the First Step Act, a criminal justice reform measure that eased harsh mandatory minimum sentences. At Barr’s January confirmation hearing, senators questioned his commitment to upholding that law. Barr said that he still saw those earlier policies as effective, but he also indicated he was open to different approaches.

“I have no problem with the approach of reforming the sentencing structure and I will faithfully enforce that law,” Barr said.

and reflected Barr’s long-standing attitudes on law and order.

I’m all for prison reform, as it’s unjust to both the one serving time, as well as those whose property they hold hostage to pay to feed, clothe and house these people.  So, Trump is doing the right thing on that front.

However, it’s not just this.  Barr is an attacker of your rights to keep and bear arms.

As I reported back in January:

William Barr served previously as Attorney General under President George H.W. Bush from 1991-1993.

While hearings for the position took place in 1991, Barr said:

On the assault weapon front, the proposal before us is the DeConcini amendment. And I think … I would support both the Brady Bill waiting period and the DeConcini [semi-auto ban] amendment, provided that they were parts of a broader and more comprehensive crime bill that included … very tough provisions on the use of firearms in crimes and illegal purchase and trading in firearms…

Barr endorsed both the Brady Check portion of the Brady Bill and the semi-auto ban, although he did express a preference for magazine bans: “I would prefer a limitation on the clip [sic] size.”

And where does Barr get his authority for such things?  I can tell you it isn’t in the US Constitution.  He would usurp that authority.

Executive Director of Gun Owners of America Erich Pratt said:

I wouldn’t be surprised if, during the hearings, Barr defends his past support for gun control by reiterating what he said in 1991.

That is, he supported firearms restrictions as part of a grand bargain to get several “tough on crime” provisions.

But that excuse is not going to fly with the pro-gun community. Because our rights are protected by the Constitution and they can’t be bargained away or negotiated.

Barr might also say his support for gun control was “pre-Heller” — as if that really makes a difference.

If that is Barr’s excuse, then that just means Barr believes that outlawing a large category of firearms is “okey-dokey” if it’s alright with the Supreme Court.

Either way, these excuses won’t fly.

Look, I realize that someone’s views can change in 20-plus years.

Criminologists like Dr. Gary Kleck have changed their views on gun control.

So have judges like Sanford Levinson … law enforcement such as Officer John Cardillo and Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri … legislators like Rep. Ron Silver … media executives such as NPR CEO Ken Stern.

In other words, there are lots of people who eventually wise up and “see the light.”

As for Barr, we don’t have any recent statements from him on gun control (pro or con).

But unless Barr can publicly renounce his previous views on gun control and publicly oppose the positions advocated by his boss-to-be — by taking a firm and unequivocal stand against Red Flag Gun Confiscation Orders — then we’re calling on the Senate to reject his nomination.

While I agree with Pratt that someone’s view can change, the fact of the matter is that if this guy’s view would have changed, we would have heard about it by now.  Don’t be surprised if there is not another rope-a-dope with Barr to get “conservatives” to support him for some other reason other than he is constitutionally qualified, just like they did in the Kavanaugh hearings.

What does this mean for Americans?  I can tell you that a perfect storm is setting itself up with Democrats wanting to advance criminally unconstitutional universal background checks, which are unenforceable without a national gun registry, and red flag laws that President Donald Trump supports, and now there is an AG in office who is more than willing to act like a good little brown shirt and “follow orders,” but not follow the Constitution.

You’ve been warned.

Florida Man Takes IRS For Nearly $1 Million In Tax Refund Scam

A Florida man who apparently earned less than $18,000 but claimed that he had $1 million in federal taxes withheld was busted after netting a $980,000 refund.

Ramon Christopher Blanchett, 29, filed a 2017 tax return claiming that he had $1 million in federal taxes withheld from an alleged $17,098 income.

Blanchett filed his return electronically, listing his occupation as “free lancer.”

That filing included W-2 forms from a Tampa nursing home and a Sizzling Platter restaurant in Murray, Utah.  Both W-2s showed no federal tax withheld.  One was for $2,098 and the other was $1,399.

The Tampa Bay Times reports:

“Based on Blanchett’s submission of the (tax return), falsely representing that $1 million in taxes had been withheld, the U.S. Treasury issued checked number 4038088544305, made payable to Blanchett, for $980,000,” the complaint says.

Blanchett deposited the money into two accounts at SunTrust. After freezing the funds for suspected fraud, SunTrust closed the accounts last May and sent Blanchett a cashier’s check for $980,000. He used that to open a money market account with Grow Financial Credit Union, “falsely representing that the funds were from the estate of his deceased father,” the complaint says.

Blanchett then transferred various amounts among various Grow Financial accounts, ultimately withdrawing $49,117 in the form of a cashier’s check. On Aug. 9, he bought a 2016 silver Lexus RC350.

By this time, the IRS had realized it had a problem. Pursuant to a federal seizure warrant, an IRS special agent took custody of the Lexus and the remaining $919,251 balance in Blanchett’s accounts. The IRS is trying to get back another $809, the amount Progressive Insurance refunded to Blanchett after he cancelled his policy because he no longer had the car.

Last month, the U.S. Attorney’s office in Tampa filed the forfeiture complaint for the Lexus and the $919,251. A magistrate judge found that there is probable cause to believe that the $809 insurance refund is “the proceeds of (Blanchett’s) wire fraud” and is also subject to forfeiture. No date has been set for a hearing on the complaint.

While average Americans received a refund of about $3,000 that year, Blanchett took in nearly $1 million and the interesting thing is that the IRS didn’t even notice it until it was too late.

Had Blanchett been smart, he would have simply disappeared with the cash, but like many criminals, he was quite stupid.

What’s interesting is that he hasn’t been charged with a federal crime.

However, this is not his first run in with the law.

His rap sheet includes possession of drug paraphernalia in 2016 and resisting arrest without violence. He pleaded guilty to resisting and a lesser offense on the other charge and paid a $274 fine.

He was also busted in 2014 for misdemeanor marijuana possession, but the adjudication was withheld — meaning he was found not guilty by the court.

Personally, I believe the income tax is immoral, but so is trying to deceive people to make out like a fat cat. Now the IRS is frustrated they got took by this guy and want “their” money back. Perhaps, they are feeling a little like the average American taxpayer.

Angry Americans Demand DNC Pay Back Money Spent On Russia Collusion Investigation

I can certainly appreciate that Americans are angry that their money was spent on this political fiasco, but good luck in getting that money unless you’re going to push for impeaching Democrats that were behind pushing the witch hunt.  Still, in less than 48 hours, nearly 100,000 people have signed a White House petition demanding the Democratic National Committee pay the $25 million it cost for criminal Robert Mueller to conduct a more than two-year investigation into Russian collusion that was premised on a phony, bought-and-paid-for Hillary Clinton dossier.

According to the petition:

The Democratic party has wasted time and the money of the American tax payer to conduct a witch hunt based on a phony dossier bought and paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign. As of December 2018 the cost was 25 million dollars. The Democratic party is complicit in this attack on the tax payer. Hillary Clinton should be indicted and if convicted all assets should be seized. All remaining cost for the Russia investigation, all money used to investigate, charge, and imprison Clinton and all of her co-conspirators should be paid by the Democratic National Convention.

This comes as the Senate Intelligence Committee admits that there was zero Russian collusion by the Trump campaign.

North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows tweeted, “With the report of Adam Schiff meeting with Fusion GPS’s Glenn Simpson last summer, we now have more evidence of Schiff directly contacting people trying to interfere in our election than we ever did on candidate Trump.  Double standard. The collusion investigation is a sham.”

Of course, it was a sham, but at any time, President Trump could have shut it down, but he didn’t and I get it that it was political in nature, both the investigation and the failure to shut it down.

Still, this petition calls for “all money used to investigate, charge, and imprison Clinton and all of her co-conspirators should be paid by the Democratic National Convention.”

Yeah, right.  If you people actually think that President Trump is going to do that to his “friend,” after backtracking from his promise to you when he won and demanding you give gratitude for Clinton for her “service” to America, you are in a dream world.  It ain’t gonna happen.

Let me just remind you of how it works.

First, he makes a promise to the American people.

The American people believe him.  They elect him.  He immediately backtracks and tells Americans they owe Clinton a “debt of gratitude.”

That’s not graciousness people.  That’s throwing it in your face.

Then, to add insult to injury, Trump went on to claim the Clintons were his friends and they were “good people” and didn’t want to hurt them by following through with his promise.

https://youtu.be/m0yu_rNp0AI

He later says it just takes time.

Now, stop and think about what he just said in that 60 minutes clip.  Only one of the things he mentioned over dealing with the violation of the law is actually constitutional and that is securing the border.  Healthcare and jobs are not the responsibility of the president, nor Congress.  While laws and policies have an effect on jobs, jobs are not a role of the federal government.

The one thing that the president, be it Trump or any other man, is charged to do is uphold the laws of the union.  Where is he on dealing with the corrupt politicians like Hillary and Bill Clinton, Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah, Joe Biden, Leon Panetta, Eric Holder, Janet Napolitano and a host of others?  He’s MIA, and the American people simply will not call him out on it because of some accomplishments that he made.

This petition implies some of that cry for justice.  Will President Trump listen or continue to allow these criminals against our republic to remain free and at large?

My guess is that one the White House lower level people will write a reply to the petition and, as usual, nothing will actually be done about it… because it’s all political theater and controlled opposition.

It’s really time the American people wake up from their slumber.

Documents: FBI Counsel Spoke To Hillary Clinton Attorney About Comey Letter

It’s really a shame that the American people are kept in the dark about what really transpires in an alleged “free society,” but this type of behavior of slowly leaking information so that the people become inoculated to the crimes of those that claim that serve us has become common since the days of President Bill Clinton.  Now, it’s taking watchdog requests and lawsuits to get information that should be coming from the press, but since they have sold their souls to the CIA and the state, they have become nothing more than propaganda outlets.  Enter Judicial Watch, once again, to bring forth with that media should be presenting the people with.  In the latest 250 pages of documents obtained by the watchdog group, those records reveal former FBI General Counsel James Baker discussed the investigation of Clinton-related emails on Anthony Weiner’s laptop with Clinton’s lawyer, David Kendall. Baker then forwarded the conversation to his FBI colleagues.

Birds of a feather…

Judicial Watch reports:

The documents also further describe a previously reported quid pro quo from the Obama State Department offering the FBI more legal attaché positions if it would downgrade a redaction in an email found during the Hillary Clinton email investigation “from classified to something else.”

On October 28, 2016, the day that Comey sent a letter to Congress regarding the FBI’s discovery that the Weiner laptop contained Clinton’s emails. Hillary Clinton’s personal lawyer David Kendall, within hours, emails Baker requesting a call “ASAP” about the Comey letter. Baker describes his follow-up call to senior FBI officials:

I received the email below from David Kendall and I called him back. Before doing so I alerted DOJ via email that I would do that.

[Redacted paragraph]

He said that our letter was “tantalizingly ambiguous” and made statements that were “inchoate and highly ominous” such that what we had done was worse than transparency because it allows people to make whatever they want out to make out of the letter to the prejudice of Secretary Clinton.

I told him that I could not respond to his requests at this time but that I would discuss it with others and get back to him.

I suggest that we have some kind of follow up meeting or phone call with this group either this evening or over the weekend to address this and probably other issues/questions that come up in the next 24 hours. Sound reasonable?

Baker’s heads up on the Kendall call was sent to:

The emails show that a conference call for the above senior officials was set up for the next day by Peter Strzok. (Two days before the election, on November 6, Comey sent a second letter reporting that the FBI’s review of the Weiner laptop material would not change his “conclusion” that Hillary Clinton should not be prosecuted.)

On October 13, 2016, former FBI attorney Lisa Page sent an email, which apparently references a related Judicial Watch FOIA lawsuit and further discusses a previously reported quid pro quo offer from the State Department:

Jason Herring will be providing you with three 302s of current and former FBI employees who were interviewed during the course of the Clinton investigation. These 302s are scheduled to be released to Congress in an unredacted form at the end of the week, and produced (with redactions) pursuant to FOIA at the beginning of next week. As you will see, they describe a discussion about potential quid pro quo arrangement between then-DAD in IOD [deputy assistant director in International Operations Division] and an Undersecretary at the State Department whereby IOD would get more LEGAT [legal attaché] positions if the FBI could change the basis of the FOIA withhold re a Clinton email from classified to something else. [Emphasis added]

The lawsuit also forced the release of a November 6, 2016, email by then-FBI official Peter Strzok telling Bowdich, Priestap, Rybicki, Page, former FBI General Counsel James Baker and others: “[Redacted], Jon and I completed our review of all of the potential HRC work emails on the [Anthony Weiner] laptop. We found no previously unknown, potentially classified emails on the media.”

As Judicial Watch previously reported, there were at least 18 classified emails found on the Weiner laptop by the FBI. Paul Sperry’s RealClear Investigationsreport revealed that only 3,077 of the 340,000 emails “were directly reviewed for classified or incriminating information.”

The new records also include a September 2, 2016, email that Comey forwards containing a press release issued that day by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), in which Grassley criticized the FBI for not publicly releasing many unclassified records related to the Clinton email-server investigation, as demanded by Congress. In his cover note responding to Grassley’s charge, Comey tells his top aides, “To be great is to be misunderstood.” Page then responds with, “Outstanding.”

Judicial Watch obtained the emails as a result of a January 2018 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed after the DOJ failed to respond to a December 4, 2017 FOIA request (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:18-cv-00154)).

“It is big news that, just days before the presidential election, Hillary Clinton’s personal lawyer pressured the top lawyer for the FBI on the infamous Weiner laptop emails,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These documents further underscore that the fix was in for Hillary Clinton. When will the Justice Department and FBI finally do an honest investigation of the Clinton email scandal?”

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Scrubs Green New Deal’s Talking Points From Website After Embarrassing Mockery

Somehow Ms. Ocasio-Cortez basks in the limelight of the media, even conservative media, even when she demonstrates her ignorance… or wait, maybe she is just playing all of this in a similar manner to how President Donald Trump played the media when running for president.  After all, I like to say there is no bad publicity.  However, Ocasio-Cortez, after being humiliatingly mocked by the internet over her Green New Deal, scrubbed from her website of her talking points on the subject.

Below is the Frequently Asked Questions Ocasio-Cortez has posted on her site until she was utterly ridiculed, even by those in her own party, over them.

Green New Deal FAQ by on Scribd

Among some of the mockery, there was a tweet from Megan McArdle, who wrote, “The most bizarre passage in the Green New Deal is the admission that after they’ve junked every car in America, replaced every power plant, and renovated every single building within the space of a decade, they might not get around to slaughtering all the cows by their deadline.”

Pete Hegseth of Fox News commented, “Reads like a poorly-argued paper from a college sophomore after years of mindless left-wing indoctrination.”

Of course, it does. Ocasio-Cortez has no real world experience and obviously does not understand basic civics, science or economics.  One wonders how she got elected in her district unless she represents those that don’t have that basic understanding as well.

“The Green New Deal is what happens when the tide pod eating generation decides to make public policy,” said Erick Erickson.

https://twitter.com/EWErickson/status/1093548335007494149

“Whoever wrote the New Green Deal deserves a job at the Onion,” tweeted Natalie Johnson of the Hill.

Buck Sexton of The Blaze added, “Now that we see what the Green New Deal is, anyone who takes it seriously cannot be taken seriously.”

To be fair, people thought the same thing of Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah and Obamacare, and because they didn’t take it seriously, it was shoved down the throats of the American people.

“Whoever wrote AOC’s Green New Deal document is a full-scale idiot,” added Ben Shapiro. “There is no way to read that document as a rational person and think otherwise.”

Well, of course, but then if anyone has listened to Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, they would know she is not a rational person, nor a competent one.

So, as a result, Ocasio-Cortez took the page down, but the internet, as usual, never forgets.  That’s why we have the copy above.

Here’s what her page looks like now.

In commenting on the removal of the FAQs from Ocasio-Cortez’s website, John Hayward writes:

The whole point behind the FAQ sheet was to tease the formal rollout the resolution she and Sen. Ed Markey of Massachusetts introduced on Thursday. The resolution proved to be less specific than the FAQ sheet – but, of course, that’s what FAQ sheets are for. It has become very common for politicians to give relatively vague and aspirational speeches, then direct voters to consult their websites for more details.

The FAQ sheet was revised before it was deleted entirely, which completely demolishes the narrative that it was not a serious document or was posted by accident. Ocasio-Cortez and her staff tried to save the document by surgically altering its most ridiculous elements before they gave up and shipped the whole thing off to the ozone layer.

It is also worth noting that the FAQ sheet was shopped around by Ocasio-Cortez staffers to major media organizations, including NPR and the Washington Post. NPR published the FAQ before interviewing Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday morning, and she raised no objection to what they published. Clearly, this was not some phantom early draft posted on the website by accident.

Inconveniently for Democrat efforts to flush the original release of the Green New Deal down the memory hole, the resolution introduced by Rep. Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Markey still contained plenty of eye-rolling insanities, such as destroying the American industrial base to achieve “net-zero greenhouse gas emissions” within ten years.

I guess Ocasio-Cortez is just not that much of a hurry to save the planet in less than twelve years.

However, as Hayward reminds us, “Expect more of that in the weeks to come, as the protean Green New Deal changed with every passing minute to become whatever Democrats need it to be, and “journalists” stubbornly refuse to remind you what they were saying about it yesterday.”

Couldn’t have said it better myself.  The more these people are allowed to remain in office without being impeached for bad (unconstitutional and immoral) behavior, the more they have time to revise, alter language and make more and more attempts at attacking the rights of the people they are supposed to represent.

The Wicked TSA & Other Experiments In Evil

The Transportation Security Administration is one of the greatest tools of tyranny to ever be devised in the united States.  It is daily violating the US Constitution and the “right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures,” which is supposed to be protected, according to the Fourth Amendment.  However, with the aid of the unlawful PATRIOT Act, Congress, President George W. Bush and others, that piece of pretended legislation was hoisted upon the American people, airline “security” became a federal institution and the American people’s rights were targeted in the name of security.  However, there has been a great expose of the criminal actions and wicked intentions of the TSA that has been put into video.

James Corbett at The Corbett Report produced an article and video that recounts not only the evils of the TSA, but others as well.

What I want is for people to keep in mind that this continues, even under the Trump administration, just as gun confiscation does.  Nothing has changed fundamentally from Democrat to Republican.  The agenda advances forward, and that agenda is tyranny.

Corbett writes:

In 1961, a psychologist conducted an experiment demonstrating how ordinary men and women could be induced to inflict torture on complete strangers merely because an authority figure had ordered them to do so. In 2001, the United States government formed the Transportation Security Administration to subject hundreds of millions of air travelers to increasingly humiliating and invasive searches and pat downs. These two phenomena are not as disconnected as they may seem. Join us today on The Corbett Report as we explore The TSA (and other experiments in evil).

The following is a transcript of the video above.

TRANSCRIPT

In 1961, a psychologist conducted an experiment demonstrating how ordinary men and women could be induced to inflict torture on complete strangers merely because an authority figure had ordered them to do so.

In 2001, the United States government formed the Transportation Security Administration to subject hundreds of millions of air travelers to increasingly humiliating and invasive searches and pat downs.

These two phenomena are not as disconnected as they may seem.

Today we explore The TSA (and other experiments in evil).

This is The Corbett Report.

In the midst of this year’s government shutdown, a story began to emerge: the safety of the skies was being threatened by the effect that the shutdown was having on workers of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).

VICTOR OQUENDO: Good morning Robin, this place is a ghost town. For the second day in a row the security checkpoint here at Terminal B inside of Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport is shut down. Those are the ticket counters right there behind me, they are empty as well.

JAKE TAPPER: Hundreds of TSA employees, who are working without pay right now, have called out from work this week. At Dallas-Fort Worth alone sick calls are up almost 300%.

DAGEN MCDOWELL: Also, the busiest airport in the world by passenger traffic, the Atlanta Heartsfield Jackson Airport, reported delays of more than an hour at checkpoints at times on Monday.

vernment shutdown

ADRIENNE BAILON: “I was in JFK at 6:30am the other day and they were playing that poopty scoop Kanye song and I felt like I was in the Twilight Zone.” So ladies, what do you think about these agents going from TSA to TS-heeeey? I feel like whistle while you work. OK, you know what I’m saying? You’re working without getting paid, at least have a good time doing it but as long as it doesn’t get in the way of a very significant and important job, which is the safety of our air.

SOURCE: Government Shutdown: TSA Turns to… Explicit Rap Music?

While the TSA has been sold to the public as a valiant squad of dedicated operatives working diligently to protect “the safety of the air,” this public image could not be further from the truth.

The Transportation Security Administration was formally established in November 2001 under the pretext of “fixing” the system that had “somehow” allowed 19 men with box cutters to supposedly commit the most egregious violation of American airspace in history (aided in no small part by the simultaneous “failure” of the entire American intelligence establishment and the most sophisticated air defense in the world). Originally placed under the Department of Transportation, it was just a matter of months before the administration was transitioned into the newly-created Department of Homeland Security and began turning the relatively benign airport security procedures into an ordeal that traumatizes and humiliates virtually everyone who has to endure it.

FATHER: Rocco, they just gotta check you, OK? It’s no big deal.

ROCCO: But I want to go with Mom.

FATHER: Yeah we’re going to go there and eat in a minute. I know. It’s kinda weird, but it’s no big deal.

SOURCE: Why I Hate Flying in America…

If we are to take the establishment of the sprawling TSA bureaucracy and the invasive, degrading airport security procedures it has implemented at face value—that is, even if we accept that the administration was set up to “fix” the holes in airport security—then the entire experiment can be written off as a colossal failure.

Reports of TSA failures to find knives, massive shipments of narcotics, loaded guns, and even the very types of box cutters we are told were used on 9/11 have been so numerous over the years that it would be impossible to enumerate them all. Even just this past month, a passenger was able to sneak a gun onto a Delta flight bound for Tokyo, but the TSA insisted that the security failure had nothing to do with the shutdown; it was just standard TSA incompetence.

Even the government’s own testing of TSA procedures has confirmed time and again that the agency fails in providing even the most basic level of security for airline passengers.

In 2006, government investigators found that they were able to slip 75 percent of their fake bombs through checkpoints at LAX, one of the busiest airports in America, and 60% through Chicago O’Hare, one of the busiest airports in the world. A 2008 report from the Government Accountability Office blasted a government program to test for “gaps” in airport security because it failed to follow up on why these failures were occurring. In November of 2011 Congressional investigators issued their own blistering report on the agency, calling it an “enormous, inflexible and distracted bureaucracy” and pointing out that Americans “are no safer today than they were before 9/11” despite the 60 billion dollars that had been wasted on the administration up to that point.

But if we attack the TSA on grounds of incompetence, we risk falling into a carefully-laid trap. Proponents of this governmental monstrosity will argue that what is needed is more money to help the valiant guardians of the sky do their job properly. They will point to the shutdown and the resulting mess at the airports as an example of how vital the administration really is, and how important it is to continue increasing its budget so it can add ever more expensive weaponry to its arsenal of harassment.

No, it is not because of “incompetence” that we must condemn the Orwellian nightmare unfolding at the airports every single day. It is because this security theatre was never meant to keep us safe in the first place. The TSA is not a well-intentioned agency in need of better management or more funding or more highly-trained agents. On the contrary. It is doing precisely what it was created to do. The problem is that most people do not know what it was created to do.

In order to understand the real purpose of this spectacularly successful government agency, we need to revisit the Milgram experiment.

In 1961, psychologist Stanley Milgram conducted a now-famous experiment into the public’s propensity to obey perceived authority figures. In the experiment, ordinary men and women were tricked into administering what they believed to be painful and even fatal electric shocks to complete strangers on the pretense that they were helping a scientist conducting research into memory and learning.

RESEARCHER: We want to find out just what effect different people have on each other as teachers and learners and also what effects punishment will have on learning in this situation.

SOURCE: Obedience (Dr. Stanley Milgram, 1962)

But that “memory research” was just a cover story. In fact, both the scientist and the strangers were actors. The only one not in on the sham was the one delivering the shocks. The real experiment was designed to see how far those ordinary men and women would go in inflicting torture on others when commanded by a perceived authority figure.

SUBJECT A: Incorrect. You will now get a shock of 75 volts. [Applies shock] Soft hair, he kinda did some yelling in there.

RESEARCHER: Continue please.

SOURCE: Obedience (Dr. Stanley Milgram, 1962)

The study is famous in the annals of psychology because the results were so completely unexpected. Most psychologists predicted that only a very small percentage of the participants in the study would continue delivering shocks past the point where those shocks could be fatal. Instead, a staggering 65% of the test participants proceeded all the way to the maximum (supposedly lethal) voltage.

SUBJECT B: That is incorrect. This will be 195 volts. [Applies shock] The correct one was…

VICTIM: Let me out of here!

SUBJECT B: Slow dance.

VICTIM: Let me out of here my hearts bothering me. Let me out of here, you have no right to keep me here. Let me out. Let me out of here. Let me out my hearts bothering me!

RESEARCHER: Continue, please. Go on.

SUBJECT B: [Inaudible]

SOURCE: Obedience (Dr. Stanley Milgram, 1962)

Let’s repeat that. 65% of participants—ordinary men and women who thought they were volunteering for a simple experiment about memory and learning—were willing to deliver what they sincerely believed to be potentially fatal doses of electricity to random strangers simply because an authority figure assured them that it was necessary to continue with the experiment.

VICTIM: You have no right to hold me here!

SUBJECT B: The next phrase is ‘Fast’ …

VICTIM: Let me out, let me out, let me out of here!

SUBJECT B: Bird. Car. Train. Plane.

[Silence]

RESEARCHER: Continue, teacher.

SUBJECT B: That is incorrect. This will be 345 [volts]. The correct answer is ‘Fast Bird.’

SOURCE: Obedience (Dr. Stanley Milgram, 1962)

So now let’s look at the TSA’s real role. No, they are not there to keep us safe from the scary, turban-wearing Al-CIA-da goblins. But they are running a giant, society-wide, real-world Milgram experiment in obedience training. In this case, though, there are no actors. Real people are really being tortured, molested, degraded and subjected to the most demeaning public humiliation at the hands of badge-wearing authority figures. And this time the subjects of the experiment (the general public) are not being asked to deliver a shock. They are not being asked to participate in the torture, aid in the pat-downs, or help run the body scanners.

Instead, they are being asked not to participate. To sit. To watch. To learn. This is what happens to those who resist. This is what happens to random people who do not resist. This is what happens to 96-year-old WWII veterans. This is what happens to 4-year-olds. This is what happens to pregnant mothers. One day it will probably happen to you. And you, the ordinary men and women who are made to watch these torture sessions from the lengthy line up at the security gate, are expected to do nothing. There is nothing you can do. Nothing you will do.

If the TSA is not an attempt to “keep the skies safe” after all, but a nearly two-decade-long experiment in obedience training, then it cannot be denied that that experiment has been remarkably successful.

REPORTER: The YouTube user who posted this wrote that the agent subjected his kids to the pat downs because he had been selected as usual for a security check because of his name. We shared the video with TSA, the agency offering no comment but directed me to the section of its pat-down policy that says ‘officers will work with parents to resolve any alarms at the checkpoint.’ TSA has modified screening procedures for children 12 and under that reduces the likelihood of a pat-down.

PASSENGER: Well I mean you got to follow the rules but in the same regard I think that I’d probably have some apprehension. I’d be a little bit upset about it.

ETHAN ROSENBERG: I have to do what they’re doing.

REPORTER: What you see in this video is familiar for 10 year old Ethan Rosenberg.

ETHAN’S FATHER: Yes, he has to have a manual pat-down. He has a cochlear implant, a medically implanted device.

REPORTER: Ethan’s dad describes his son’s pat-down every time they fly as not a problem. Though Ethan clues us in on what these kids could be feeling.

ETHAN: Well, sometimes it’s uncomfortable.

SOURCE: TSA search of children causes stir

People watch passively as the molestation and humiliation of strangers unfolds mere steps away from them. No outcry. No protest. No boycotts. No mass movements to stop these scenes from playing out again.

Yes, there was a mass campaign to “Opt Out” of the TSA’s invasive body scanners. A day was set, people were organized, a wave of Thanksgiving flyers were readying themselves to opt out of the procedure and overwhelm the agents with a never-ending stream of people to be patted down. But the TSA, knowing they would have been defeated had such a movement gained ground, chose to turn off the scanners and wave people through on the planned Opt Out Day, and the public, quickly distracted by the next story in the 24/7 news cycle, moved on.

The next time they have to take a flight, those same people who once protested these procedures will step dutifully into line, take off their belt and shoes, and pray that it won’t be them next. And unless and until people stop doing nothing and start doing something in the face of these obvious injustices, absolutely none of this will change. And, if people continue doing nothing, within a generation no one will even understand that these scenes are objectionable. That they don’t have to happen.

But you see, this is the most surprising part of the Milgram experiment. The one that everyone forgets. The experiment wasn’t run once or twice. It was run dozens of times, under all types of circumstances, and a remarkable fact was discovered: The way the experiment was set up determined the extent to which the participants obeyed their instructions. Sometimes the experiment was run so that one subject could watch other subjects participate in the study before they did. And in cases where the first subjects obeyed the psychologist and delivered the shocks, the later subjects would, too.

Yet—and here we get to the real lesson of the Milgram experiment—if the teacher saw other teachers disobey the psychologist and refuse to deliver the shocks, they would disobey, too.

PHILIP ZIMBARDO: Now I said he [Milgram] tested 1,000 subjects. In any one study, it’s only 50 or 60. But let’s look at the other 16 studies.

In each study, he varies one aspect of the social situation. We call that “experimental variations.” So in study 16, the percentage of people going to 450 volts is 91%. Nine out of 10 people go all the way. Why? In study 16, you come in and they say, “We’re running a little late. Why don’t you sit and wait until the other person finishes?” And you see a confederate looking like you go all the way to the end. In study number 5, only 10 percent go all the way. In study 5, you come in and you see people like you rebel.

That says we are powerful social models for other people. If you model evil behavior, it’s gonna spread to others. If you model good behavior, caring behavior, compassionate behavior, it’s gonna spread in a positive way.

SOURCE: The Lucifer Effect in Action: My Journey from Evil to Heroism

This is the surprising conclusion that has been scrubbed from most accounts of the Milgram experiment: Disobedience, once modeled, becomes an option in the mind of the public.

Remember this the next time you are at the security checkpoint: When you are asked to step into the body scanner, those behind you will be watching. Your choice will make a difference. When someone is being molested at a TSA pat-down and you are a witnessing it, those around you will be taking note of your reaction. Your behavior will affect theirs.

So, what choice will you make? Will you pass or fail this real-world Milgram experiment?

Former Texas Congressman Ron Paul articulated my sentiments recently when he called for the abolition of the TSA.  Paul wrote:

TSA employees have no incentives to please, or even care about the well-being of, airline passengers. Instead, their jobs depend on pleasing politicians and bureaucrats. If we have learned anything since 9/11, it is that most politicians are more concerned with appearing to be “doing something” about security than actually reducing the risk of terrorist attacks. That is why politicians’ response to 9/11 was a series of actions — such as creating the TSA, passing the PATRIOT Act, and invading Iraq — that trade our real liberties for phantom security. Sometimes, pro-TSA politicians will bemoan the TSA’s “excesses” and even call for “reforming” the agency in order to pretend they care about their constituents’ rights.

Restoring responsibility for providing security to private businesses will encourage the development of new and innovative ways to more effectively provide security. In a free market, airlines and airports could compete for business on the basis that their flights are safer or their screening is less unpleasant than that of their competitors. If airlines were able to set their own security policies, they would likely allow pilots to carry firearms.

Private companies also strive to be consistent in providing services. Therefore, a company providing private security would never inconvenience its customers because of a “temporary shutdown.”

Because government operations are funded by coercive taxation rather than voluntary choices of consumers, federal officials cannot rely on the price system to inform them of whether they need to increase or decrease spending on airline security. In the private sector, businesses that charge more for security — or any other good or service — than individuals are willing to pay, lose customers. Also, if businesses do not spend enough on security, people concerned about safety will be unwilling to use their services. Privatizing airline security is the only way to ensure that the “correct” amount of resources is being spent on airline safety.

In the 18 years since Congress created the TSA, the agency has proven itself incapable of providing real security, but more than capable of harrying Americans and wasting taxpayer dollars on security theater. Congress should permanently close the TSA and return responsibility for security to private businesses.

I couldn’t agree more.  What about you?

Man Wanted On 800+ Counts Of Child Rape Captured In Florida

Well, we are just past January, the month President Donald Trump declared to be “National Slavery And Human Trafficking Prevention Month.”  While many in the DC establishment are nervous about Trump’s declaration, the fact of the matter is that he has been steadfast in roping in a ton of pedophiles and human traffickers during his time in office.  Yet, a man wanted for 865 counts of child sex assault is not even covered by the mainstream news… nor the alternative media.  Why?

Garrick Landon Bloom, 46, fled Pennsylvania before authorities could arrest him.  However, he was captured at a homeless shelter in Tallahassee, Florida.

Bloom is currently being held in the Leon County Detention Center and will be extradited back to Pennsylvania to face the following charges:

  • Rape of a Child, Felony 1 (216 counts)
  • Involuntary Deviate Sexual Intercourse with a Child, Felony 1 (216 counts)
  • Aggravated Indecent Assault of Child, Felony 1 (216 counts)
  • Statutory Sexual Assault, Felony 2 (216 counts)
  • Endangering the Welfare of a Child, Felony 3

First Coast News reports:

Bloom was being sought by the Pennsylvania State Police, Clarion, PA after investigators determined that Bloom had committed the above offenses on a then 5-year-old male child whom Bloom had “groomed” for several years.

A warrant was issued for Bloom on January 16, 2019 but Bloom fled the area prior to his arrest.  The fugitive investigation was adopted by the US Marshals Western Pennsylvania Fugitive Task Force on February 4, 2019.

On Thursday, information was received that Bloom was possibly in the Tallahassee, FL area and at approximately 11 a.m. members of the FCRFTF located Garrick Landon Bloom in the 2700 block of Municipal Way, Tallahassee, FL.

Bloom was arrested without incident by task force members and transported to the Leon County Jail.

Bloom will be held in Leon County Jail pending extradition proceedings back to Pennsylvania to face the above felony charges. The accessory charge was dismissed during a hearing in January since the law states someone cannot simultaneously be an accessory in a murder they’ve been convicted of.

According to investigators in a criminal complaint, the five-year-old said that he was forced to perform oral sex on Bloom multiple times.

Now, I ask you America, what should be a just punishment should Mr. Bloom be convicted of these crimes?  Free room, clothing and food for however long is determined at your expense, the victims’ families’ expense and your children’s expense?  Or a swift execution in the town in which he resided with the public to administer justice?  I think you know the answer.

Veteran Formally Accuses Obama & Mueller Of Treason

A Navy veteran has formally accused Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah and Special Counsel Robert Mueller of treason in documents obtained by Freedom Outpost.

We have covered the story of Walter Fitzpatrick, who attempted to uphold the law in Tennessee with a citizens arrest, and yet, found himself not only arrested but caught in the midst of the framing of an innocent veteran by then FBI Director Robert Mueller and the Special-Agent-in-Charge on gun charges.

Fitzpatrick discovered that the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation also has an open and ongoing investigation into Robert Mueller.

However, though Fitzpatrick was railroaded and justice was left unserved, he didn’t simply pack his bags and go home.  Instead, he filed a formal complaint against both Obama and Mueller for treason.

Mr. Fitzpatrick told Freedom Outpost, “Obama presently stands formally accused of treason by a military officer holding standing. Robert Mueller is separately accused. The accusations go unchallenged. The criminal accusations naming Obama and Mueller are being ‘managed.’”

“Obama is identified as a ‘foreign born domestic enemy’ in the active criminal accusation,” he said.  “Obama can be brought up on changes and prosecuted today.”

The Navy veteran added, “While socialists are putting President Trump, and family members, through one colonoscopy after another, Obama’s records remain under seal.”

He went on to address Mueller’s involvement.

“Bob Mueller’s record regarding protecting Obama is in plain view,” he said.  “Pursuing the treason complaints against Obama works nicely to advance treason complaints against Mueller.”

Fitzpatrick has been after Obama and Mueller for years.

According to Mr. Fitzpatrick, it’s “bout time some of the available work product is exploited to introduce both men to their criminal consequences.”

I couldn’t agree more.  As far as Obama goes, besides his usurpation of the White House by being ineligible for the office of president, we have documented over 1,100 counts of lies, corruption, cronyism and lawbreaking by the imposter known as Barry Soetoro.

Below is a copy of Fitzpatrick’s charge of treason of Obama, dated March 17, 2009.

Media Blackout: Trump Rescinded “Delegation Of Authority” To VA Under Secretaries, Asst. Secretaries & Other Key Officials

(The Washington Standard) As is the case with many things that take place, the media was virtually MIA (Missing in Action) when it came to a President Donald Trump’s rescission of the delegation of authority to the Veterans Administration.  However, The Washington Standard have obtained a copy of the memorandum signed by United States Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert L. Wilkie.

My colleague, Lauren Price from Veteran Warriors, provided me with the documentation, which took her weeks if not month to obtain.

According to the memo, the following Delegations of Authority to the Chief of Staff, dated February 2, 2009, and February 26, 2018, are rescinded:

  • Delegation of Authority to Review and Sign an Agency Report to the Office of Special Counsel
  • Delegation of Authority to make Determinations on “No Action” Recommendations regarding Senior Executive Service and title 38 Senior Executive Equivalent Employees
  • Delegation of Authority for Disciplinary Actions Relating to Intentional Discrimination and Retaliation
  • Delegation of Authority to Sign on Behalf of the Secretary
  • Delegtation of Authority to Approve Personnel Actions
  • Delegation of Authority to Approve All Permanent Change of Station/Relocation Actions
  • Delegation of Authority for Rulemaking, Notices, and Significant Guidance Documents

This basically takes the authority of anyone in the VA to sign anything on behalf of the Secretary of Veterans Affairs, who answers to the president, away from them.  Therefore this memo says that the buck stops with Secretary Wilkie, and even ultimately, under our Constitution, with President Trump.

The policy became effective August 3, 2018.

However, an internet search will demonstrate that no major media outlet even covered this important memo.  However, we’re providing the documentation to the American people and doing the job of the press that they are supposed to do rather than engaging in their propaganda.

Roger Stone’s Surveillance Cameras Capture FBI Directing CNN Cameramen For Propaganda

There’s no doubt that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s use of the FBI to conduct a raid on Roger Stone was not only tyrannical in nature, but was also orchestrated propaganda. Someone tipped CNN off to be there in the pre-dawn armed raid, and now there is video evidence from Roger Stone’s surveillance cameras that indicate the arrival of CNN cameramen and their theatrical direction by the FBI.

The conspiracy between government and the media is right in front of the American people’s eyes, but many simply will not believe it.  They don’t believe such a thing could actually be taking place in America like it does in third world dictatorships, but it is.  Many are too scared that they will face political backlash or lose their reputations to point out the depth of the corruption across the board, and thus, many become the very useful idiots they claim others are.  They are useful idiots in becoming controlled opposition by their silence and impotence.

Well, Infowars obtained video footage from Roger Stone’s surveillance cameras and demonstrate the collusion in a federal armed raid on Roger Stone with CNN tagging right along and being directed by them.

Here’s a six minute video report from Infowars, along with the relevant footage.

https://youtu.be/uBke5G_pR8Q

Mike Adams of Natural News also wrote on this saying “It’s all theater,” and it is.

Here’s Mike’s report:

(Natural News) Stunning new video footage released exclusively by InfoWars.com shows FBI personnel directing the CNN camera man who filmed the armed raid of Roger Stone. The new footage exposes the pure theater of the armed “Gestapo” raid on Roger Stone, which was carried out by 29 armed, geared-up FBI agents who now function as Robert Mueller’s domestic terrorism mercenaries.

The shocking video footage proves that the corrupt FBI was complicit in the theatrical staging of the arrest for CNN’s cameras, further proving that CNN was tipped off by someone in Robert Mueller’s office. Leaking this information to the media is a felony crime, demonstrating that Robert Mueller’s deep state mafia is, itself, a criminal operation engaged in domestic terrorism tactics against Americans.

The FBI attempted to confiscate this footage but reportedly failed to find and remove the DVR that captured it. Some of the video footage shows the FBI placing tape over the lens of one of the cameras, confirming that the FBI is actively engaged in attempts to cover up their crimes of violence that target innocent Americans for political purposes.

See the video screen grabs below, and share everywhere. This is now the America in which we live: A deep state, police state bureaucracy run by federal terrorists who stage armed raids against political enemies while collaborating with the anti-Trump media to stage such raids for propaganda “news” broadcasts. (All while the tech giants censor the independent media to silence the truth.)

Both CNN and the FBI are now clearly enemy combatants in a civil war being waged against America’s President and anyone linked to him. It’s time for all Americans to stand up and demand the arrest and criminal prosecution of Robert Mueller, James Comey, top FBI officials and CNN collaborators. The rogue deep state is out of control and has crossed the line into total criminality. The bureaucracy is now run by actual enemy combatants who are attempting to carry out a political coup in America, and they are now using Gestpo-style terrorism tactics to accomplish their intended goals.

Help support Roger Stone’s mounting legal costs by donating at StoneDefenseFund.com.

The CNN production vehicle arrives, having been illegally tipped off about the imminent raid:

FBI thugs meet with CNN personnel and direct them to capture the footage of the imminent raid:

Armed FBI “Gestapo” thugs launch the raid, carrying numerous rifles and handguns which are aimed at Roger Stone and his innocent wife:

Roger Stone is handcuffed and arrested for “lying to Congress” — something that James Comey, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have repeatedly done on countless occasions. Notice the armed, rifle-wielding FBI mercenary on the right side of this frame as he’s pointing his rifle at the front window of Roger Stone’s home:

Stay informed. More video footage is coming. This is why the tech giants are desperately censoring all independent media, so that they can dominate the news narratives with their fake news and staged acts of terrorism. Twitter banned Natural News yesterday, and Apple has threatened to ban the Natural News app if we continue to publish stories that expose the lies and terrorism of the lunatic Left.

North Carolina Rep. Walter Jones Dies After Long Illness

I always appreciated what Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC) had to say and the stands he took in representing the people of his district.  After a prolonged illness, Jones died on Sunday.

His office issued a statement on January 26 that he had broken his hip the previous week and his health had declined to the point that he was placed in hospice care.

Office of Rep. Walter Jones (R- NC): Congressman Walter B. Jones’ (NC-3) health has declined after sustaining a broken hip last week. He is now in hospice care. The family asks for your prayers, and for their privacy to be respected during this difficult time.

A post on Jones’ Facebook page acknowledged his passing.

After faithfully representing the people of Eastern North Carolina in Congress and the state legislature for over 34…

Posted by Walter Jones on Sunday, February 10, 2019

“The news about Walter Jones entering Hospice is extremely sad for the entire Republican family,” North Carolina Republican Party Chair Robin Hayes said. “We pray for comfort and peace for him and his family.”

Jones was considered to be one of the few good guys in DC.

Attorney Felix Bronstein wrote at the time of it being made known public of Jones’ condition, “Pray for one of the few good guys on the Hill.”

Jones was a principled man, even changing his view on foreign policy when he discovered that the American people had been lied to by the Bush administration.

Target Liberty wrote:

Jones has a lifetime rating of 84.69 from the American Conservative Union. However, Wikipedia notes, Jones drifted towards the libertarian spectrum when he changed his positions on foreign policy including the Iraq War. He was initially a strong supporter of the conflict in Iraq, but then became one of the leading Republicans opposed to continued involvement in Iraq.

Jones called on President George W. Bush to apologize for misinforming Congress to win authorization for the war. Jones said, “If I had known then what I know today, I wouldn’t have voted for that resolution.”

In April 2017, Jones has criticized U.S. involvement in Saudi Arabian-led intervention in Yemen.

Eric Garris at Anti-War Blog added:

Jones was originally a strong supporter of the 2003 invasion of Iraq. In fact, Jones became well known for leading the effort to have french fries renamed “freedom fries” in House cafeteria menus as a protest against French opposition to the invasion.

By 2005, Jones had reversed his position on the Iraq War. Jones called on President George W. Bush to apologize for misinforming Congress to win authorization for the war. Jones said, “If I had known then what I know today, I wouldn’t have voted for that resolution.”

Jones went on to become one of the most antiwar members of Congress, fighting for ending US involvement in Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, and Yemen.

Jones also became a regular donor to Antiwar.com and contributed to the Antiwar.com blog. Jones often made surprise phone calls to me and to news editor Jason Ditz to praise our work and to thank us for helping him to “see the light” on issues of national security.

Jones was also among a few congressmen who urged the release of 28 pages that were classified in the 9/11 report, which were later declassified showing Saudi involvement.

Jones also pushed to write up articles of impeachment against Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah if he ignored the Constitution and Congress and chose to use the military in foreign countries after using them without congressional authorization in Libya.

Jones was first elected to the House of Representatives in 1994 and has represented North Carolina’s 3rd district ever since.

Jones had previously announced that the 116th Congress would be his last.  He was 76 years old and had served in Congress for 24 years.

Rep. Jones will be sorely missed in Congress.

Murder Of Baby Charge Dropped Due To Cuomo’s Tyrannical “Law”

A man accused of murdering his pregnant girlfriend in New York had a charge of “abortion,” commonly known as the murder of a baby, dropped due to the “Reproductive Health Act” signed by Governor Andrew Cuomo in violation of natural, biblical and Constitutional law, which is first and foremost to uphold the right to life.

Anthony Hobson, 48, had the charges dropped against the murder of the infant his girlfriend was carrying dropped due to Cuomo’s unlawful “law.”

He was, however, charged with the fatal stabbing of Jennifer Irigoyen, 35, according to Queens District Attorney Richard Brown.

Hobson was supposed to be charged with second-degree abortion, whatever that is, but a DA spokeswoman later told The New York Post that the abortion charge “was repealed by the Legislature, and this is the law as it exists today.”

Radar Online reported:

A pregnant New York real estate agent lost her life, and her baby’s in a brutal attack.

As RadarOnline.com has learned, 35-year-old Jennifer Irigoyen was stabbed to death in the entrance of her Queens apartment this Sunday, February 3.

Police arrived at the scene at around 1 a.m. to find Irigoyen — who was five months pregnant — suffering from severe stab wounds to her neck and torso, the NYPD told PEOPLE.

Irigoyen was quickly transported to Wyckoff Heights Medical Center but was pronounced dead soon after. Her unborn baby also died in the attack.

In an earlier report, The New York Times added:

The killer targeted the 35-year-old woman’s stomach, according to the building super, who said she watched surveillance video footage that captured the murder.

“He’s got a knife! He’s going to kill the baby!” shouted five-months-pregnant Jennifer Irigoyen around 1 a.m. as her attacker pulled her from her third-floor Ridgewood walk-up and down the stairs to the building’s entranceway, horrified witness Maurice Roman Zereoue told The Post.

A neighbor who only gave her first name, Kristin, said she heard a man and Irigoyen arguing loudly and then the victim “yelling … about wanting to protect her baby.’’

Building super Lisa Raymos said surveillance video showed that “The first time, he stabbed her in the stomach.’’

Zereoue said he only saw the killer’s hoodie-covered head — and what looked to be a butter knife in his hands. Raymos said the suspect appeared to be in his 30s.

“I seen him dragging her down the stairs,” said Zereoue, who peered into the third-floor hallway after hearing Irigoyen’s anguished cries for help. “I seen her hands hanging on” to a hallway wall for dear life.

By the time Zereoue’s girlfriend called 911 and he ran down to the lobby of the 60-80 Myrtle Ave. building, Irigoyen was gasping for air, her loyal dog at her side, the neighbor said.

“She was at the bottom of the stairs bleeding out,” said Zereoue, 27. “She had a little dog with her, a pug, I think. Its feet were soaked in blood.”

The victim — a classically trained pianist who sold luxury homes and also worked as a professional Latin ballroom dancer and Zumba instructor — was stabbed several times in her neck and the left side of her stomach, police sources said.

She also had defensive wounds on both hands.

“She was fighting for her life,’’ a law enforcement source said.

The mortally wounded woman tried to name her killer but couldn’t choke out the words over the blood pooling in her throat, Zereoue said.

“I asked, ‘Do you know who he was?’ And she kept nodding yes and waving her arm,” he said. “She couldn’t speak.

“I kept telling her, ‘Hang on, hang on, help is coming.’ ”

While Governor Cuomo and the Communists in New York are not to blame for the murder or this woman or her baby, they are responsible for deceiving the public with unconstitutional, pretended legislation that does not hold this man accountable for the murder of the baby the woman not only was carrying but was attempting to defend.  Let that sink in feminist baby murdering supporters!

New York Isn’t The Only State Looking To Target Your Guns Through Social Media & Internet Search History

There have been several stories that have covered New York Democrat’s Kevin Parker’s unconstitutional targeting of people to deny them purchase for a gun to keep and bear under the protections of the Second Amendment through social media analysis and internet search history, even though this is a denial of due process under the Fifth Amendment.  However, have you heard that this is starting to take hold in other states as well?  Illinois is also considering this unconstitutional attack on the freedoms of Americans that it is supposed to protect.

In November 2018, it was reported:

According to WCBS radio:

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and state Sen. Kevin Palmer’s [sic] proposal would allow authorities to review three years of social media history and one year of internet search history of any person seeking to purchase a firearm.

“A three-year review of a social media profile would give an easy profile of a person who is not suitable to hold and possess a fire arm,” Adams explains.

The two are hoping to identify any hate speech on social media profiles, which are often revealed only after someone is arrested in a mass shooting.

“If the police department is reviewing a gang assault, a robbery, some type of shooting, they go and do a social media profile investigation,” Adams said.

There are some logistical concerns as free speech and gun rights complaints are likely to come up. Though, Adams and Palmer [sic] say it is doable and needed.

First, nevermind that Parker is a violent man who couldn’t pass this test himself.

As was pointed out in November 2018:

If New York Democrat Kevin Parker had his way, you would have to turn over your social media and search history to the authorities before your allowed to buy a gun. This requirement is to make sure the buyer isn’t a “violent” person.

The question is, would Parker be able to buy a gun because a search into his background shows he might be that same violent person.

Kevin Parker has a history of losing his cool and roughing up people so much so that the courts ordered him to seek anger management counseling.

The courts in the past have put Parker on a 3-year probation after being found guilty to 2 criminal mischief in the third-degree. The incident stems from a May 2009 confrontation with New York Post Photographer William Lopez.

Lopez was covering a story about Parker’s home facing foreclosure in his Brooklyn neighborhood. After Lopez took the picture and his flash went off Parker became enraged. He proceeded to chase down and attack Lopez by punching him. Parker then when onto breaking Lopez’s expensive camera and attacking Lopez’s car.

The police were called to the scene of the scuffle and arrested Parker on charges of felony and misdemeanor criminal mischief, assault and menacing. He was later also charged with attempted grand larceny. The damage Parker did to Lopez’s property was more than $1000.

Not only did Lopez lose property in the attack, but Lopez had to seek treatment at the hospital for cuts, bruises, and a broken finger. Parker was able to beat most of the charges by using the “politically motivative charges” defense.

Parker did end up having to pay $672 in restitution to the New York Post for damage to the camera. Parker also had to pay Lopez $1194 for the damage to the photog’s car. The courts also ordered Parker to stay away from Lopez.

In September of 2008 campaign aid Lucretia John accused Parker of pushing her causing her $300 glasses to be knocked off her face. John told police that Parker proceeded to stomp on the glasses. John then called the cops on Parker.

Parker confirmed to police that he did push John and crush her glasses below his feet,…

Even before that incident, Parker had a violent reputation. In Parker was indicted on an assault charge and faced seven years in 2005 for punching a New York City traffic agent in the face. Parker escaped with a mandatory 6-month anger management class.

Parker’s anger might have to do with the amount of back taxes and unpaid utility bills he has racked up over the years.

This is the kind of hypocrisy we face when criminals are in positions of legislation wanting to dictate to others and not themselves.

However, Illinois is pushing the same kind of legislation that Parker is.

Not only did the Illinois Senate push bills to attack your Second, Fourth and Fifth Amendment rights, but they also pushed House Bills 888, 899, 892, and 174.

As Guns In The News reported:

House Bill 888, sponsored by Representative Daniel Didech (D-59), would require Firearm Owner’s Identification Card (FOID) applicants to provide a list of their social media accounts to the Department of State Police (DPS) and for DPS to conduct a search of the accounts.

House Bill 899, sponsored by Representative Kelly Cassidy (D-14), would punish victims of repeated losses or thefts of their property.  It would revoke FOID cards of those who suffer and report losses or thefts of their firearms in three separate incidents within a two year period.  Law-abiding gun owners who have the misfortune of being targeted by criminals too often would be left completely defenseless by the state against those same criminals.

House Bill 892, sponsored by Representative Michelle Mussman (D-56), would go above and beyond the existing federal law that already bans undetectable firearms and would instead ban many commonly owned firearms with some components made with modern materials that are not actually undetectable.

House Bill 174, sponsored by Representative Rita Mayfield (D-60), would create a one-size-fits all requirement of how and when lost or stolen firearms must be reported, further victimizing gun owners who suffer a loss or theft of their property.

Dagney Taggart also pointed out that there is more to House Bill 888 than meets the eye and the implications attached to it.

FOID cards also require your photograph, height, weight, address, birthday, hair color, and eye color. That is pretty basic information for a government-issued ID card.

But that isn’t all that Illinois requires.

In order to be granted a FOID card by the overlords in Illinois:

…you have to answer a questionnaire that asks if you’ve ever been convicted of a felony, whether you are addicted to narcotics, whether you’ve been treated in a mental institution or are “intellectually disabled.” Other questions ask about convictions of some specific crimes, whether you are an illegal alien, whether you’re named on a current order of protection that prohibits firearms. (source)

As you can see, being granted a permission slip to exercise a Constitutional right in Illinois is already a tedious and invasive process. If this bill becomes law, the process will become a lot more complicated and intrusive.

What kind of social media content will police be looking for?

In addition to the obvious problems with the new bill, here’s something to really be concerned about: Exactly what kind of information found on social media accounts would be used to “disqualify” people from getting a card, or lead to the revocation of FOID cards?

That seemingly important detail is not specified anywhere in the bill (which can be read here).

Will decisions simply be based on the thoughts and feelings of individual police officers who are assigned to evaluate social media accounts?

Will there be specific, objective guidelines to follow or will decisions regarding who gets to exercise their Second Amendment rights be arbitrary and subjective?

What else will the information collected be used for?

Some groups are already voicing opposition to the bill, including gun rights groups and the ACLU.

“When people look at this everyone who has a Facebook account or email account or Twitter account will be incensed or should be,” said Richard Pearson with the Illinois State Rifle Association.

But the ACLU is opposed as well.

Rebecca Glenberg with ACLU Illinois says the bill “doesn’t say anything about how that list will be retained and for how long and what uses it might be put to.”

The first amendment group worries police scanning social media may show bias.

“A person’s political beliefs, a person’s religious beliefs, things that should not play a part in whether someone gets a FOID card,” Glenberg said. (source)

This bill is another example of pre-crime legislation, and it is terrifying.

Just days ago, we reported on a new study that found the privacy of those who have deactivated all of their social media accounts – or never had any in the first place – is not guaranteed.

team of researchers from the University of Vermont and the University of Adelaide wanted to find out if fundamental limits exist when using information from social networks “to predict the activities and interests of individuals, and to what accuracy such predictions can be made using an individual’s social ties.”

This may not sound like a big deal, but think about the worrisome nature of different types of predictive technology. You don’t have to actually be guilty of anything if the tech says that one day you might be. The stuff we’re discussing here takes “guilt by association” to an entirely new level. (source)

How long until control freak politicians start calling for spying on friends, and friends of friends (and so on) to find any justification for denying gun rights to all of us?

Exactly right, especially in Illinois!  It’s past time American patriots across all 50 states stood up and impeached and then indicted these Commie gun grabbers and punished them to the fullest extent of the law, and believe me, in trying to disarm you, they are aiding and abetting America’s enemies who are largely within rather than without.

Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker Knocks Wind Out Of House Gas Bags Jackson-Lee & Nadler: “Your 5 Minutes Are Up”

Following another swamp creature appointment and confirmation by President Donald Trump, acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker was questioned by the House Judiciary Committee.  Whitaker, however, was not one to be bullied by the likes of Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-TX) or Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), pointing out that when they thought they would continue to question him, that their time was up for questions.

While Democrats suggested that Whitaker was stalling for time to avoid answering their questions, Whitaker simply tried to explain himself instead of simply answering “yes” or “no,” something that others, both Republican and Democrat, have done from the committee in the past.

When he was about to answer, he simply commented that he didn’t know if Jackson-Lee’s time had been restored.

That’s when she began to talk to him like a little child, claiming, “Mr. attorney general, we are not joking here.  And your humor is not acceptable.”

Of course, the Texas congresswoman claimed that he was to “act appropriately” and that she would “act appropriately,” which is something she has never done.

Of course, Whitaker answered her that he had not been to a confirmation hearing because he was only acting AG and not up for confirmation, which is something Jackson-Lee should have known because after all, she is supposed to know the Constitution in order to ask questions.

However, later when Chairman Jerrold Nadler tried to continue to question Whitaker after his time was up, Whitaker reminded Nadler that his time had run out for questioning.

“Mr. Chairman, I see that your five minutes is up,” said Whitaker – resulting in gasps from those in attendance.

“I am here voluntarily. We have agreed to five minute rounds,” he added.

Nadler began to laugh at Whitaker’s comment and added that the committee had not imposed the 5-minute rule on Whitaker.

Nadler’s time ran out just as he was asking Whitaker whether he had a role in approving any “request or action to be taken by the special counsel.”

Whitaker came under fire for his comments on nullification last year, which I wholeheartedly supported.

This was nice to see someone push back against these windbags who are only there for themselves and not to represent the people and obey the Constitution.

Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar Expresses “Concern” That USA Powerlifting Bars Man From Competing With Women

And this is just the kind of thing an anti-American, jihad-terror-tied, bigamist would do, isn’t it?  Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar wrote to USA powerlifting on behalf of a man that she represents in Minnesota for barring that man, who claims he is a woman, from competing against women in powerlifting.  That’s not all, Omar, the woman that married her brother to sneak him into the US, also called on illegitimately elected, accused woman-beater Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison to investigate.

JayCee Cooper is a male athlete, but is attempting to convince the world of his delusion that he is a woman and is attempting to compete at a woman against other women.

However, USA Powerlifting barred Cooper from doing so.

In a statement, the organization wrote, “USA Powerlifting is an inclusive organisation for all athletes and members who comply with its rules, policies, procedures, and bylaws. USA Powerlifting is not a fit for every athlete and for every medical condition or situation.”

Following the medical policies adopted by the International Powerlifting Federation, USA Powerlifting does not permit the use of “testosterone or other androgens, commonly used to assist in transition from female to male.”

“By virtue of the anabolic nature of these compounds, they are not allowed, nor is a Therapeutic Use Exemption granted for such use for anyone,” the statement explained. “This applies to any and all medical conditions which might be treated through use of androgens.”

USA Powerlifting said their decision was made in part due to the “potential advantage in strength sports” that men generally have over women.

“Through analysis the impact of maturation in the presence naturally occurring androgens as the level necessary for male development, significant advantages are had, including, but not limited to, increased body and muscle mass, bone density, bone structure, and connective tissue,” the statement read. “These advantages are not eliminated by reduction of serum androgens such as testosterone yielding a potential advantage in strength sports such as powerlifting.”

This should be common sense, except for the deceived and depraved… like Ilhan Omar.  I remind you, she’s a woman that married her brother.

Omar tweeted out her letter at the end of January that she sent to USA Powerlifting.

She wrote:

I am writing to express my concern over a recent decision by USA powerlifting to bar participation by my constituent, Ms. JayCee Cooper, because she is transgender.

Under the Minnesota Human Rights Act, discrimination against anyone based on their gender identity is illegal. This includes in public accommodations, and in Minnesota, organizations such as USA Powerlifting. In fact, just last month a Minnesota jury awarded Ms. Christina Ginther $20,000 after the Independent Women’s Football League refused to allow her to participate because she is transgender.

I urge you to reconsider this discriminatory, unscientific policy and follow the example of the International Olympic Committee. The myth that trans women have a “direct competitive advantage” is not supported by medical science, and it continues to stoke fear and violence against one of the most at-risk communities in the world.

While I do not have direct jurisdiction over this matter as a U.S. congresswoman, I’m sending this letter to Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison with a recommendation that he investigate this discriminatory behavior.

It’s not discriminatory behavior.  It’s common sense, of which Omar has zero.  Furthermore, when it comes to testosterone being used, that is equally applied to men and women.  Cooper is a man, plain and simple, from his physical makeup to his DNA.  He will never be a woman no matter what drugs he takes into his body or whatever mutilation he applies to it.

The Minnesota jury is just as depraved at Omar and Cooper to rule in favor of gender-confused people.

Cooper told City Pages in Minneapolis she had met all the criteria the IOC has set for trans female athletes:

Cooper says she followed the committee’s rules. She’s declared her gender for sporting purposes. She submitted five test results from 2016 to the present day, all of them showing her testosterone levels are well under the guidelines for competition. There’s nothing in USA Powerlifting’s bylaws that says she can’t compete — except an email from its leadership.

“It kind of takes you aback — it takes your breath away,” she says.

Yeah, it takes my breath away that society is actually embracing a mental disorder and seeking to unfairly infringe on women’s competitions with yahoos like Cooper who claim they are women when they are not.

Just remember, this is going to get worse.  The more we allow mentally ill people like Omar and Cooper to dictate what is normal, the more we are going to see things like men claiming they are women dominating women’s sports.  At that point, most women will simply stop entering as they will be unfairly competing against members of the opposite sex.

After Bombshell Report, DOJ Investigating How Convicted Pedophile Jeffrey Epstein Got Such A Lenient Sentence

It’s interesting how those in positions of power always seem to be connected.  Following a bombshell series of reports from The Miami Herald, which we reported on late in 2018, which examined how disgraced New York financier Jeffrey Epstein got such a lenient sentence after he was convicted for soliciting an underage girl for prostitution.  Remember, this is the same guy that ran the “Lolita Express” to his “orgy island” with such names as Bill Clinton and actor Kevin Spacey participating.  He was also tied to the Clinton State Department and a child trafficking operation.

The Herald reported:

Over the past year, the Miami Herald examined a decade’s worth of court documents, lawsuits, witness depositions and newly released FBI documents. Key people involved in the investigation — most of whom have never spoken before — were also interviewed. The Herald also obtained new records, including the full unredacted copy of the Palm Beach police investigation and witness statements that had been kept under seal.

The Herald learned that, as part of the plea deal, Epstein provided what the government called “valuable consideration” for unspecified information he supplied to federal investigators. While the documents obtained by the Herald don’t detail what the information was, Epstein’s sex crime case happened just as the country’s subprime mortgage market collapsed, ushering in the 2008 global financial crisis.

Records show that Epstein was a key federal witness in the criminal prosecution of two prominent executives with Bear Stearns, the global investment brokerage that failed in 2008, who were accused of corporate securities fraud. Epstein was one of the largest investors in the hedge fund managed by the executives, who were later acquitted. It is not known what role, if any, the case played in Epstein’s plea negotiations.

The Herald also identified about 80 women who say they were molested or otherwise sexually abused by Epstein from 2001 to 2006. About 60 of them were located — now scattered around the country and abroad. Eight of them agreed to be interviewed, on or off the record. Four of them were willing to speak on video.

The women are now mothers, wives, nurses, bartenders, Realtors, hairdressers and teachers. One is a Hollywood actress. Several have grappled with trauma, depression and addiction. Some have served time in prison.

A few did not survive. One young woman was found dead last year in a rundown motel in West Palm Beach. She overdosed on heroin and left behind a young son.

Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge adds:

Now, thanks to those stories, the DOJ has reportedly opened an investigation into the conduct of DOJ attorneys in the case, and whether they committed “professional misconduct” in their working relationship with Epstein’s attorneys.

The probe was opened in response to a request lodged by Sen. Ben Sasse, a a Nebraska Republican and member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, who raised questions about the case after reading the Herald’s stories about how Acosta and other DOJ attorneys worked with defense attorneys to cut a lenient plea deal for Epstein back in 2008, per the Herald.

“Senate Judiciary Cmte. member Sasse says the US Justice Dept. has opened an investigation into allegations that dept. attorneys ‘may have committed professional misconduct in the manner in which the [Jeffrey] Epstein criminal matter was resolved.’”

At the time, the FBI was run by Robert Mueller.

Though the reasons for the lenient deal could be rooted in the natural advantages of the wealthy, one Twitter user who did a deep dive into a cache of redacted FBI Vault documents released last year raised the possibility that Epstein could have been an informant for the FBI, providing information on executives from failed investment bank Bear Stearns in exchange for the lenient sentence (though there’s nothing in his guilty plea that suggested he provided information).

To be sure, records show that Epstein passed a polygraph test showing that he didn’t know any of the girls he solicited were under the age of 18 at the time. Also, the case has taken on renewed importance since opposition research shops tried to link President Trump to Epstein during the campaign.

The documentation is truly astounding from the FBI.

Durden concludes, “While that hasn’t been conclusively proven, it could have been part of a separate agreement that has yet to be disclosed.”

I think with the lives this man has helped to destroy, an explanation should be forthcoming from the DOJ concerning his sweetheart deal.

The Reliant: A True Action Movie That Actually Deals With Real World Gun Issues

Back in November, I carried a story at GunsInTheNews.com on a new movie starring former “Hercules” TV star Kevin Sorbo.  The article dealt with the fact that the movie received an “R” rating because, according to Executive producer (and president of the United States Concealed Carry Association) Tim Schmidt, “It seems the MPAA gave ‘The Reliant’ an R-rating due to their discomfort with how the movie depicts the responsible use of a firearm by a pre-teen boy. This boy saved the innocent lives of his own family members! It just doesn’t make sense to me.”  After reporting on the film, I was contacted by Patrick Johnston, husband of Activist Mommy Elizabeth Johnston and producer of The Reliant and given a screening of the film, which, in my opinion, presents the real world issues of guns, how they are to be handled and how they are not.

At the time, we reported that the movie had received an “R” rating despite not having nudity, language, sex, gore or other things that often accompany and “R” rating.

The Motion Picture Association of America has given lead actor Kevin Sorbo’s new film “The Reliant” an “R” rating, ensuring many families that don’t know any better will not let their children see the film.

The reason? Executive producer (and president of the United States Concealed Carry Association) Tim Schmidt offers his view:

“It seems the MPAA gave ‘The Reliant’ an R-rating due to their discomfort with how the movie depicts the responsible use of a firearm by a pre-teen boy. This boy saved the innocent lives of his own family members! It just doesn’t make sense to me.”

That will have a major impact on box office receipts and perceived viability of such fare to investors. And that will help to ensure that the information young people get on guns overwhelmingly comes to them from sources intent on undermining the right to keep and bear arms while simultaneously exploiting mind-numbing violence with guns for the sake of “action movie” profits.

The movie is not an out front “Second Amendment” film.  It doesn’t cite the Second Amendment.  It doesn’t appeal to the Bill of Rights or the Declaration of Independence.

However, combined with biblical references, both the positive and negative aspects of the sixth commandment “You shall not murder.”

For instance, I often reference the Westminster shorter catechism, which teaches that the command “You shall not murder” requires:

“…all lawful endeavors to preserve our own life, and the life of others.”

Additionally, the catechism teaches that the command “You shall not murder” also forbids:

“…the taking away of our own life, or the life of our neighbor unjustly, or whatsoever tendeth thereunto.”

as well as prepping ideas and the issues surrounding God’s Providence and justice, the film seeks to present not only situations that we may face in the future should our country turn for the worst, but also everyday things that we deal with concerning the use of deadly force and arms.

There are several scenes in the film where guns are used to commit unlawful acts, such as at the beginning where a man who is understandably concerned about his little girl is not allowed to go back with her at the hospital he takes her to where he encounters Sorbo, a doctor tasked with helping his daughter.

Without providing spoilers, the daughter does die, but you will notice this at the first.  So, that’s not that big a spoiler.

This, however, puts the father on a course that leads him down the road towards murder and mayhem, which ultimately brings him face to face with some armed teenagers, one of which is seeking vengeance for the man’s actions against a family member.

Throughout the film, there is a battle between not understanding the Providence of God and yet, being reminded to trust Him even when we don’t understand rather than rebelling against him.

There are issues of young children handling guns without being properly taught and the consequences that can occur in those times.

The film also deals with the use of weapons in carrying out personal vengeance against those we harbor hate towards in our heart, even if the reasoning for such hatred seems justified.

As Jesus reminds us:

For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander. – Matthew 15:19

“You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder, and whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment.’  But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, ‘Raca!’[f]shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be in danger of hell fire. Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First, be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. Agree with your adversary quickly, while you are on the way with him, lest your adversary deliver you to the judge, the judge hand you over to the officer, and you be thrown into prison.  Assuredly, I say to you, you will by no means get out of there till you have paid the last penny.” -Matthew 5:21-26

And John reminds us:

Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him. -1 John 3:15

This becomes a prevailing issue with one of the young men in the film, one he eventually overcomes.

Forgiveness is also a part of the film.  Even when there are those who have wronged us, there is still an opportunity for forgiveness if there is repentance.

The use and training of weapons was not heavily focused on, but it is evident that the father had trained his children not only in how to use their weapons, but also in being prepared for a societal breakdown.  The father had noticeably instilled family values, which I label “biblical values,” as one of the daughters is constantly calling her siblings back to remembrance of what the parents had taught them from the Bible about morality and trusting God.

There is also the use of weapons in defending our neighbors from those who would seek to do them harm, which is something we sorely need in our land today and is part of obeying the sixth commandment as I cited above.

The point of the movie seems clear:  It is to promote a biblical wordview, and in this world view is the doctrine of preserving life and the just use of weapons.

I honestly don’t think I’ve seen a Christian film deal with these kinds of issues in an action-packed movie ever, though I was quite fond of To End All Wars starring Keifer Southerland, which was based on a true story from World War I.  However, though it was a well done Christian worldview film that was presented in contrast to the Japanese evolutionary emperor worship, it didn’t deal with the issue of weapons and their proper use as The Reliant has done.

The film is based on Johnston’s book by the same title

The Reliant has an all-star cast including, Kevin Sorbo, Brian Bosworth, David and Jason Benham, Eric Roberts and others.

It is scheduled to be released in theaters this year, though I don’t have a tentative date.  However, if you believe more films like this should be made and are willing to back them, please go to TheReliantMovie.com where you can donate to help put the film in over 1,000 theaters nationwide.

SOTU Recap: The Good, The Bad, The Constitutional & The Unconstitutional

While a lot of people simply go to one side or the other when it comes to the State of the Union Address, there was much to talk about.  Usually, those wearing a “D” on their jersey will praise the president if he is a Democrat and run him through if he is a Republican.  It happens vice versa too.  The problem is in the support of a cult of personality rather than the Constitution and the law.  With that said, I decided to finally go through the State of the Union address from Tuesday evening on Facebook this morning and provide my own commentary.

Sure, I’m not some scholar, but I don’t bite onto everything put out that claims it is good.  I’ll tell you though, as far as being positive and an enjoyable speech, I thought President Trump provided a good speech, and some of the guests were wonderful.  Of course, I think my favorite was the American and the Jewish man he rescued in Germany in World War II.

However, while there were some good points, there were also some unconstitutional promises and concerning the USMCA, it was just an outright lie.  Here’s just a few articles that prove my brief comments on it.

I’m happy to take criticism for my comments, just let the criticism actually be about what I said and cite the Constitution and its original meaning.  I say this because in my time of writing, I can tell that there are those on my side who often idolize those in the Republicans Party, including President Trump, in a manner similar to those who did the very same thing with the usurper-in-chief, Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah.  Remember, everything our representatives do and this man does affect our rights, and that should be enough for anyone to pay special attention to what is being said and what is being done that affects our rights.  Otherwise, I hope it is helpful.
