Muslim Academic: ISIS Represents Islam – We Must Discuss This Honestly & Take Responsibility for What Is Happening in the World

As if we didn’t know that ISIS is Islamic, despite insistence to the contrary from the likes of John Kerry and Theresa May. Dr. Arwa Al-Khattabi is by no means the first or only Muslim scholar to make abundantly clear that what ISIS did was Islamic, and entirely in keeping with Quranic doctrine and Muhammad’s commands.

There have been many, and no doubt there will be many more.

But instead of heeding them and making adequate preparations for the defense of free people and free societies, feckless leftist leaders all over the West claim that they know more about Islam than Muslim scholars such as Al-Khattabi do, and insist that it’s a religion of peace that is completely benign and will be nothing but a boon to free societies in the West.

They are leading those societies on the path to suicide.

“Yemeni Academic Dr. Arwa Al-Khattabi: ISIS Represents Islam; We Must Discuss This Honestly and Take Responsibility for What Is Happening in the World,” MEMRI, March 16, 2019:

On March 16, 2019, BBC Arabic (U.K.) hosted a debate about extremism and Islam. Dr. Makram Khouri-Machool, the director of the Cambridge-based European Centre for the Study of Extremism, said that most Muslim societies are peaceful and that Islam should not be accused of extremism. He said that there had been no killing of Arab Christians in the Middle East until American and Western occupation. Dr. Arwa Al-Khattabi, a Yemeni expert in European and German history, said that ISIS represents Islam and that it has attempted to implement it by the book without distorting, changing, or adding anything. She said that Arabs and Muslims must discuss the matter honestly and take responsibility for what is happening in the world rather than act like victims and blame others.

Following are excerpts:

Dr. Makram Khour-Machool: This is an important point for everyone to understand – the matter is between extremist forces in the West and the Muslims. This is why we say that most Muslim societies in the world are peaceful societies, and Westerners cannot look at the religion of Islam and accuse it of extremism in the world. This must stop – from a scientific, legal, practical, and procedural perspective.

Host: Okay let’s hear from…

Dr. Makram Khour-Machool: Just one more thing… The problem is that the Arab regimes do not have the power to stand before the European regimes and tell them: “What you want to apply to us – you must apply to yourselves.”

[…]

We had not seen the killing of Arab Christians and easterners until the intervention and occupation by America and the West in the Arab east and in our Arab world. The Arab Christians lived with their Muslim brothers in security in their countries, and there were no problems until the invading Western powers came in and nurtured the hatred and supported it financially, as they still do. Thus, there is no connection or correlation between Western terrorism and Christianity in the East.

[…]

Host: Do you agree with Dr. Gabriel Sawma’s point that ISIS represents Islam?

Dr. Arwa Al-Khattabi: Yes. This is the truth, and we must discuss this in full honesty and fairness. We must confront our [problems]. ISIS has come to implement Islam as it is, by the book. It has not come up with anything on its own. It evoked the religious texts exactly as they are. It did not distort, change, or replace anything. It came with the text and implement it exactly as it is.

[…]

They came in order to [implement] the proper Islam, complete with slave girls, the rape…

[…]

It is very unfortunate that we want to deny… We have a huge problem and we must recognize this before [we do] anything else. We have a problem, and we must take responsibility for it before we blame others for what is happening in the world. We cannot shut our eyes and deny this. It is happening because of us. When we deny things and place the blame on others, as if we are forced to do all this and are not the reason for what is happening… We must all own up to what is happening.

American Idiocracy: 50 Years Later, We’re Still Stranded in the Twilight Zone

We’re developing a new citizenry. One that will be very selective about cereals and automobiles, but won’t be able to think.”—Rod Serling

Have you noticed how much life increasingly feels like an episode of The Twilight Zone?

Only instead of Rod Serling’s imaginary “land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas,” we’re trapped in a topsy-turvy, all-too-real land of corruption, brutality and lies, where freedom, justice and integrity play second fiddle to political ambition, corporate greed, and bureaucratic tyranny.

It’s not merely that life in the American Police State is more brutal, or more unjust, or even more corrupt. It’s getting more idiotic, more perverse, and more outlandish by the day.

Somewhere over the course of the past 240-plus years, democracy has given way to idiocracy,  and representative government has given way to a kleptocracy (a government ruled by thieves) and a kakistocracy (a government run by unprincipled career politicians, corporations and thieves that panders to the worst vices in our nature and has little regard for the rights of American citizens).

Examples abound.

In Georgia, political organizers posted a “Black Media Only” sign outside a Baptist Church, barring white reporters from attending a meeting about an upcoming mayoral election.

In Arizona, a SWAT team raided a family’s home in the middle of the night on the say-so of Child Protective Services, which sounded the alarm after the parents determined that their 2-year-old—who had been suffering a 100-degree fever—was feeling better and didn’t need to be admitted to the hospital.

In Virginia, landlords are requiring dog-owning tenants to submit their pets’ DNA to a database that will be used to track down (and fine) owners who fail to clean up after their dogs poop in public.

In Texas, a police officer who allegedly gave a homeless man a sandwich with dog feces won’t be held accountable for his actions.

In Illinois, Chicago police used a battering ram and a sledgehammer to crash into a family’s home with weapons drawn, terrorizing the young children gathered for a 4-year-old’s birthday party, only to find that they were at the wrong house.

In Kansas, a 61-year-old back man in the process of moving into his new house found himself held at gunpoint and handcuffed by police, who refused to believe he was a homeowner and not a burglar.

If you’re starting to notice a pattern here, it speaks to the fact that nearly 50 years after Serling’s creative brainchild, The Twilight Zone, premiered on national television, we’re still fumbling around in the dark, trying to make sense of a world dominated by racism, cruelty, war, violence, poverty, prejudice, intolerance, ignorance, injustice and a host of other social maladies and spiritual evils.

The Twilight Zone was an oasis in television wasteland: a show that captured imaginations; challenged moral hypocrisy and societal prejudices; and railed against inhumanity, racism, prejudice, the mechanization of human beings by way of their technology, tyrants of all shapes and colors, a passive populace, war, injustice, the surveillance state, corporate greed.

Fifty years later, with so much having changed legally, technologically and politically, so much still remains the same. Fear is the same. Prejudice is the same. Ignorance is the same. Hate and war and tyranny are unchanged. Police officers are still shooting unarmed citizens. Bloated government agencies are still fleecing taxpayers. Government technicians are still spying on our communications. And American citizens are still allowing themselves to be manipulated by their fears and pitted one against the other.

All of these themes can be found in The Twilight Zone.

Serling, a truth-teller who pulled no punches when it came to calling out the evils of his day, channeled his moral outrage into storytelling. As his daughter Anne explained, “The Twilight Zone was more than just the strangest show on TV, with the best theme song, but back in the 50’s Rod Serling was serving up social commentary through science fiction.”

That social commentary disguised as entertainment tackled some of the most pressing issues of Serling’s day. “It dealt with human issues which I guess is why it’s lasted so long, because it dealt with racism and mob mentality and scapegoating and things that are still very, very prevalent and relevant today sadly,” said Anne. “We don’t seem to be able to move ahead and change.”

Serling would have no shortage of material to draw from today, given the government’s greed for money and power, its disregard for human life, its corruption and graft, its pollution of the environment, its reliance on excessive force in order to ensure compliance, its covert activities, its illegal surveillance, and its blatant disdain for the rule of law.

“I can tell you [my dad] would be absolutely apoplectic about what’s happening in the world today. And deeply saddened,” said his daughter Anne Serling. “There are moments that I’m glad he’s not here to see.”

It boggles the mind how relevant The Twilight Zone and its unique brand of truth-telling are to an age in which truth has become a convenient fiction for those in power, what researchers refer to as “Truth Decay.”

As a report from the Rand Corporation explains, “Truth Decay is defined as a set of four related trends: increasing disagreement about facts and analytical interpretations of facts and data; a blurring of the line between opinion and fact; an increase in the relative volume, and resulting influence, of opinion and personal experience over fact; and declining trust in formerly respected sources of factual information.”

Serling would have had a lot to say about the lies that masquerade as truth today.

I’m not sure that Serling would have been surprised by current events, though. After all, this was the man who concluded that people are alike all over: that was the kernel of truth in one of Serling’s episodes about a pair of astronauts who journey to Mars only to find that while they may have landed on an alien planet, inhabited by alien creatures, the ignorance, fear and prejudice of the “foreigner” was the same.

So many truths, packaged in 156 episodes that aired from 1959 to 1964.

Serling took pride in the writing, penning 92 of the 156 episodes himself. For the rest, he enlisted some of the best writers of the 20th century to lend their talents to Zone episodes: Ray Bradbury, Richard Matheson, Charles Beaumont, Earl Hamner, to mention a few. As such, the Twilight Zone became the embodiment of great story-telling.

If you want to watch something that fuses time and space into reality by way of a fictional setting, then I suggest that you tune into The Twilight Zone.

Director Jordan Peele has taken Serling’s material out for a new spin in a reboot airing on CBS All Access, but if you haven’t experienced the original series, do yourself a favor and spend some time with them.

There are so many to choose from, but the following are 12 of my personal favorites:

Time Enough at Last: Mild-mannered Henry Bemis (Burgess Meredith), hen-pecked by his wife and brow-beaten by his boss, sneaks into a bank vault on his lunch hour to read. He is knocked unconscious by a shockwave that turns out to be a nuclear war. When Bemis regains consciousness, he realizes that he is the last person on earth.

I Shot an Arrow into the Air: Three astronauts survive a crash after their craft disappears from the radar screen. They find themselves on what they believe to be a dry, lifeless asteroid. Only five gallons of water separate them from dehydration and death. And temperamental crew member Corey (Dewey Martin) goes to great lengths to ensure his survival.

The Howling Man: During a walking tour of Europe after World War I, David loses his way and comes to a remote monastery. He is turned away but passes out, and the monks take him in. David regains consciousness and hears a bizarre howling. He eventually finds a man in a jail cell who the monks say is the Devil himself, kept in his prison by the “staff of truth.”

Eye of the Beholder: Janet lies in a hospital bed, her face wrapped in bandages, hiding the hideous face that has made her an outcast all her life. This is her eleventh hospital visit and the last allowed by the government. The faces of the doctors and nurses are also hidden by shadows and camera angles. Janet’s bandages are finally removed, and the medical staff retreat in disgust.

The Invaders: A haggard woman (Agnes Morehead) hears a strange sound on the roof. She climbs up to see a miniature flying saucer and tiny spacemen who invade her home. Their small ray guns sting, but she fights back.

Shadow Play: Adam (Dennis Weaver) is on trial, and the judge gives him the electric chair. Adam chortles that it’s all a joke, a recurring nightmare in which all the participants are bit players in a scripted play. But will anyone listen?

The Obsolete Man: Romney (Burgess Meredith) is a God-fearing librarian in a totalitarian state in which books and religion have been banned. Romney is judged obsolete by the government chancellor but is granted several requests before he dies. He chooses to have a television audience watch his execution. Forty-five minutes before he is to die, he invites the chancellor to his room and locks them both inside.

Nightmare at 20,000 Feet: Robert (William Shatner) boards an airplane after having been discharged from a mental hospital for a nervous breakdown. He looks out his window during the flight and sees a weird creature on the wing. Alarmed, he alerts others. However, when they look out, the creature disappears. Robert eventually realizes that what he sees is a demon trying to dismantle the plane so it will crash. Robert decides to act.

Living Doll: Erich (Telly Savalas) is angry at his wife for buying his stepdaughter an expensive doll. Erich has a nasty disposition and soon discovers that the doll has a life of its own and it dislikes him. In fact, the doll tells him so. Talky Tina says emphatically “I hate you” and “I’m going to kill you.”

The Masks: On his deathbed, Jason Foster calls his four heirs to his side on a Mardi Gras evening. Each heir has a character flaw—self-pity, avarice, vanity or cruelty. Foster demands that each wear a mask he has fashioned for them. If they refuse to keep the masks on until midnight, they will be disinherited. The masks are hideous, and the heirs do not want to don them. But out of greed, they slide them onto their faces.

It’s a Good Life: Peaksville, Ohio, a small community, has been “taken away” from the so-called normal world—ravaged by 6-year-old “monster” Anthony (Billy Mumy). By mere thought and/or wishes, Anthony can make things and people disappear or turn into hideous creatures. All of the adults kowtow to his every desire.

To Serve Man: The Kanamits—nine-foot-tall, large-headed creatures—come to Earth from outer space, bringing gifts, spouting peace and promising to end famine. After some initial resistance by earthlings, the world relents and humans become entranced by the visitors. However, government agent Mike (Lloyd Chambers) soon discovers a sinister and shocking plot being hatched by the Kanamits.

The Twilight Zone was a paradox.

Although the series is often seen as science fiction, ultimately it was not science fiction.

Whatever weird or far out setting may have been involved in a particular episode, the focus was always on the angst, pain and suffering we face in the so-called “real” world. As author Marc Scott Zicree writes:

The Twilight Zone was the first, and possibly only, TV series to deal on a regular basis with the theme of alienation—particularly urban alienation…. Repeatedly, it states a simple message: The only escape from alienation lies in reaching out to others, trusting in their common humanity. Give in to the fear and you are lost.

Fifty years after the original The Twilight Zone series questioned whether we can maintain our humanity in the face of authoritarian forces trying to reduce us to mindless automatons, we’re still struggling with the demons of our age who delight in fomenting violence, sowing distrust and prejudice, and persuading the public to support tyranny disguised as patriotism.

Yet as I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, we don’t have to be stranded in this alternate universe, this twilight zone of tyranny, brutality and injustice.

We still have the power to change our circumstances for the better.

However, overcoming the evils of our age will require more than intellect and activism. It will require decency, morality, goodness, truth and toughness.

As Serling concluded in his remarks to the graduating class of 1968:

Toughness is the singular quality most required of you… we have left you a world far more botched than the one that was left to us… Part of your challenge is to seek out truth, to come up with a point of view not dictated to you by anyone, be he a congressman, even a minister… Are you tough enough to take the divisiveness of this land of ours, the fact that everything is polarized, black and white, this or that, absolutely right or absolutely wrong. This is one of the challenges. Be prepared to seek out the middle ground … that wondrous and very difficult-to-find Valhalla where man can look to both sides and see the errant truths that exist on both sides. If you must swing left or you must swing right—respect the other side. Honor the motives that come from the other side. Argue, debate, rebut—but don’t close those wondrous minds of yours to opposition. In their eyes, you’re the opposition. And ultimately … ultimately—you end divisiveness by compromise. And so long as men walk and breathe—there must be compromise.”

Washington State Police Chief & Sheriff Declare Their Constitutional Duties To Not Infringe On Rights Of Gun Owners Despite Attorney General’s Threats

The Second Amendment Foundation and National Rifle Association filed a lawsuit in federal court challenging gun control Initiative 1639 in Washington state last year after voters voted to violate the rights of their fellow citizens and the Constitution that protects the rights of those citizens.  However, while the state’s attorney general has threatened that sheriffs and police officers are to enforce the law and also threatened that they could be held liable for those who purchase semiautomatic rifles under the age of 21, many are speaking out saying that they have a constitutional duty and have taken an oath to not infringe on the rights of the citizens.

In February, Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson wrote an open letter to the state’s law enforcement representatives demanding that they must enforce the state’s new unconstitutional gun law.

Not only does the new law violate the Second and Fifth Amendments to the US Constitution by adding background checks for those who purchase semiautomatic rifles, but also demands they must store them the way government claims they must store them, along with a waiting period to purchase firearms and not allowing anyone under 21 to purchase a semiautomatic rifle.

According to CNN:

Police chiefs who refuse to enforce Washington state’s new gun restrictions could be liable if that refusal results in someone buying a gun and committing a crime, state Attorney General Bob Ferguson says.

..
The section raising the minimum purchasing age went into effect January 1. The rest of the law, including the enhanced background checks, is to be implemented July 1. The new background checks would be identical to those the state has been performing for handgun buyers for years.

The Seattle Times reported that sheriffs from 13 of the state’s 39 counties have signaled they won’t enforce the law. The Chinook Observer put that number at 20.

In an open letter on Tuesday, Ferguson called out police chiefs and sheriffs who are refusing to enforce the law: “In the event a police chief or sheriff refuses to perform the background check required by Initiative 1639, they could be held liable if there is a sale or transfer of a firearm to a dangerous individual prohibited from possessing a firearm and that individual uses that firearm to do harm.”

The letter also said, “Local law enforcement officials are entitled to their opinions about the constitutionality of any law, but those personal views do not absolve us of our duty to enforce Washington laws and protect the public.”

The attorney general’s open letter noted that local law enforcement has discretion to prioritize its resources, but said, “Enforcement discretion, however, cannot subvert the rule of law.”

Sorry, Mr. AG, but when that “law” is repugnant to the Constitution, it is null and void, and you have no authority to either write the “law” nor enforce it.

“Following other law enforcement officials across Washington, including Grays Harbor County Sheriff Rick Scott, Pacific County Sheriff Robin Souvenir came out Friday to voice concerns with voter-approved Initiative 1639,” according to KXRO.

The problem is all of this is that voters do not have a right to vote down the God-given rights of other citizens.

Furthermore, threats from the AG to hold sheriffs and police officers accountable for the crimes of other individuals is unconstitutional and highly immoral (Deuteronomy 24:16; Ezekiel 18:20).

Lincoln County Sheriff Wade Magers told Gunpowder Magazine, “The bottom line is that we have Constitutional duties with our oath of office,  There’s not anything for sheriffs to enforce yet. Other than the laws sounding good, there’s not much we can do.”

Gunpowder Magazine also reported:

Magers contends that the laws were written and sold to the public in such a way that they distort the duties of a law enforcement officer. The police do not play a part in selling weapons; they do not handle background checks – those are left to the National Crime Information Center within the Federal Bureau of Investigations – and they cannot legally knock on doors to ensure firearm owners are securing their weapons properly. Such action would violate the Fourth Amendment.

“Hypotheticals aside, there really is no practical scenario in which we can enforce any of 1639,” Magers said. “Just because you start an initiative and get a bunch of signatures doesn’t mean it’s right.”

Sheriffs in Okanogan, Cowlitz, Douglas, Benton, Pacific, Stevens, Yakima, Wahkiakum, Mason, and Klickitat Counties also said they will wait until the courts decide on the legality of the laws.

Washington Police Chief Loren Culp rightly stated in a Facebook post the state’s gun confiscation initiatives don’t supersede the Second Amendment of the US Constitution.

“I’ve taken three public oaths, one in the US Army and Two as a police officer,” Culp wrote on his Facebook page. “All of them included upholding and defending the Constitution of the United States of America. The second amendment says the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. As long as I am Chief of Police, no Republic Police Officer will infringe on a citizen’s right to keep and Bear Arms, PERIOD!”

Sheriff Souvenir, who was placed in office this year, issued a statement saying that his office “will continue to investigate all complaints we receive from our community members but until the legality of Initiative 1639 is resolved by the courts these Initiative matters will be documented only.”

No matter what the courts say, the Constitution is clear:  the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.  That right is not up for debate, mob vote or majority rule.  It is an established God-given right, or liberty, that all men are endowed with by their Creator.

Tyrants don’t believe this because, just as Lucifer did, they want to be God.  By the way, this is exactly what the Beast is all about.  It’s about a government that believes its laws are higher than the Creator’s laws.

New Zealand: Door-to-Door Gun Confiscation Targets Thousands – One Man Already Reported Dead

Listen carefully.  Your right to both keep and bear arms is a right given to you by your Creator and any man who attempts to deprive you of that right is a tyrant, period.  Yet, this is what the government of New Zealand, which has bowed to Islam as evidenced by their Prime Minister, a woman wearing a hijab, pontificating on installing pretended laws to disarm the population after the alleged Christchurch mosque shooting.  Now, after thousands have been targeted in door-to-door gun confiscations, it’s being reported that at least one man is dead due to the tyrannical policies of New Zealand.

Following questionable video of an alleged attack in Christchurch on a mosque, a video which has been outlawed in New Zealand with threats around the world for anyone even posting it online to comment (If you need a copy of it, I have one), Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and the tyrants in government there, issued ex post facto “laws” to outlaw firearms that were previously considered legal.

Like what took place in Maryland last year while executing the unconstitutional red flag “laws” there in which one man was killed, the same has apparently occurred in New Zealand.

The Truth About Guns reports:

According to members of New Zealand’s largest firearm forum, Kiwi police are starting to go to gun owners’ places of employment, homes, and even visiting gun ranges in an attempt to gather information and get gun owners to relinquish their firearms.

Police are apparently trolling social media websites in an attempt to spot the newly outlawed firearms and seeking to steal them from their owners.

And what has been the result? According to Stuff which appears to be the New Zealand equivalent of The Patch . . .

A former Russian soldier who feared going back to prison tried to call his son before dying of a suspected suicide following a three-hour standoff with police.

The family of 54-year-old Troy Dubovskiy told Stuff he was sought by police after his property in the Christchurch suburb of St Martins was searched on Tuesday.

Police acted on information from the public.

His son posted a photo of him wearing a Russian Army Helmet and posing with an airsoft rifle on social media.

Dubovskiy’s 16-year-old son, who Stuff has decided not to name, said police searched the homes of his father, mother and grandparents after someone reported a photo the teen made his profile picture on Facebook five days ago.

The photo, which he first posted to Facebook several years ago, shows the teen holding a replica rifle and wearing a Russian helmet. The teen used the equipment along with his father while playing Airsoft, a team sport where people shoot each other with pellets using replica guns.

During a search of the home, police found a blank pistol, an airsoft rifle, and an SKS carbine; the latter is now illegal under the new “assault rifle” ban.

Sadly, both Democrats and Republicans are pushing for the same kinds of unconstitutional “laws” in states and in DC, including President Donald Trump.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) warned the American people that both parties were going after your guns and to be vigilant.

This is going on in New Zealand.

It’s also going on in many states in our nation.

It’s long past time for the men of the counties to band together behind constitutional sheriff to oppose this tyranny.  If we don’t, we are surely going to be destroyed.

CO Sheriff On Unconstitutional Red Flag Bill: “I’ll Go To Jail Before I’ll Violate Somebody’s Constitutional Rights”

I have always appreciated constitutional sheriffs, especially when it comes to them taking a stand that might even put themselves and their freedom in jeopardy.  In a recent report, a Colorado sheriff said that he would rather go to jail than enforce the unconstitutional red flag bill that the House is seeking to pass which would infringe upon the constitutional rights of citizens in his country.

House Bill 19-1177 is a tyrannical bill that seeks to operate under the terms of Extreme Risk Protection Orders (ERPOs), or what is commonly called “red flag laws.”  They aren’t laws since they violate the Constitution and the rights of the people.  They are lawless pretended laws.

Weld County Sheriff Steve Reams was asked by CNN, “Are you willing to sit in your own jail to avoid enforcing this law?” according to the Greeley Tribune.

“Well obviously no sheriff wants to be confined in their own jail, but if that’s what it takes to get this bill ironed out, then I guess that’s a sacrifice I’ll be forced to make,” Reams replied. “The worst way to bring attention to it is for me to be put in that position, but I’ll do that before I’ll violate somebody’s constitutional rights.”

Sheriff Reams is currently in court to seek to keep the bill from being made into “law.”

“We’re working hard to try to figure out a mechanism to get this into the courts before anybody is harmed by it,” Reams said. “Unfortunately, someone has to be damaged by it first. It comes down to whether I want to take this to court for violating somebody’s rights or for me refusing to enforce a court order.”

You might say, well, what good is just one sheriff?  I ask you, what good was one little shepherd boy with a sling and some rocks against an armored giant?

The fact of the matter is that it isn’t just one sheriff.

More than half of the 64 counties in Colorado have declared themselves to be “Second Amendment Sanctuary County,” which means they are ignoring these types of unconstitutional gun laws.  Many counties in New Mexico are also declaring themselves to be Second Amendment Sanctuary Counties, as well.  I wish they would ignore every gun law, which would make them completely constitutional in the matter.

Should the bill pass and be signed by the governor, it could be used against sheriff’s like Reams to either arrest them or fine them indefinitely.  Of course, since the sheriff is the supreme law officer in the county, he could simply deputize every able man he desires to do so that is on his side and mount and opposition against anything the state wanted to try and do to him.

However, the Communists advancing the unlawful bill, such as Democratic House Majority Leader Alec Garnett, aren’t worried about the sheriffs being arrested and spending time in jail.

Garnett said he “won’t lose any sleep” over the arrest of sheriffs being jailed for standing for the Constitution.

No, Garnett claims, “What I’m going to lose sleep over is, if that’s the choice that they make and someone loses their life, someone in crisis goes on a shooting spree, (or) someone commits suicide” because the gun was not stolen from the individual.

First, Garnett will sleep sound in his little bed.  He won’t lose a wink of sleep.  Second, I use the term “stolen” because unless a crime has occurred or there is an indictment, per our Constitution, to go and take people’s property or liberty is a violation of their rights.

Mr. Garnett is promoting theft by the government of Colorado.  So is Rep. Tom Sullivan, whose son was killed in the Aurora shooting in 2012.  He is a co-sponsor of the bill.

While I sympathize with the loss of his son, Rep. Tom Sullivan is also promoting government theft of law-abiding citizens’ property.  Both of these men should be called out for the criminals they are and impeached from their seats of representation by the people.

As for Sheriff Reams and others like him in the state of Colorado and across the country, there are plenty citizens such as myself you can call on in your respective counties that will stand with you against the tyrants and their pretended laws.  All you have to do is call on us.

Trump Threatens To Shut Down Southern Border – Even For Trade

President Donald Trump has threatened to shut down the United States – Mexico border, even for trade. In a tweet sent out Friday, Trump said he’d shut down the border if Mexico refuses to tackle the illegal immigration issue he’s made a cornerstone of his presidency.

Trade problems have already hit Americans right in their wallets and Trump continues to threaten to make things worse.  In a series of tweets, the president made threats that will be a bit difficult to follow through with. And he started by throwing some shade at Democrats in typical U.S. political rhetoric.

According to RT, shortly after issuing the inflammatory tweets, Trump confirmed to reporters that the border shutdown could affect “all trade,” and that he would “keep it closed for a long time.” The president added, “I’m not playing games, Mexico has to stop it,” he added.  U.S. Customs and Border Protection Deputy Commissioner Robert Perez told CNN that “the entirety of the immigration system is absolutely overwhelmed,” adding that it was essential to “work with our Mexican counterparts” to handle the issue.

Closing the border could make things even harder on those trying to enforce the already cumbersome immigration laws in effect and trade fights have already hurt the average American. Prices have gone up and layoffs have taken place as companies lose money thanks to the tariffs.  Additionally, it hasn’t fixed the trade deficit with China Trump was concerned about. In fact,  it’s made it worse. 

More Trade War Failures: US Trade Deficit Hits Highest Level In A Decade

Politicians on both sides of the aisle have been fairly quick to point the finger at each other. Especially after footage emerged of hundreds of migrants being housed under a bridge in El Paso due to the extremely crowded situation in detention facilities. Border Patrol Commissioner Kevin McAleenan announced earlier in the week that the agency had even begun to consider the “direct releases” of migrants that the government (U.S. taxpayer) is unable to provide for.

Trade has been a concern for over a year now, and with no end in sight, Trump could be making a massive mistake by further hampering free trade between nations and causing the costs of goods and services to continue to rise at a point when Americans can’t afford it.

Gun Control Costs: Dick’s Sporting Goods Takes $150 Million Loss, CEO Is Perfectly Fine With It

Dick’s Sporting Goods took a hard Communist stance against guns in the wake of the school shooting at Majorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.  Since then, Dick’s has lost over $150 million, but the CEO is ok with it.

In the midst of the retail apocalypse, Dick’s CEO Ed Stack has decided it isn’t important to make money, it’s only important to be a flamboyant leftist. According to a Bloomberg report, that Dick’s lost about $150 million after the company publically came out for gun control, yet Stack continues to stand his ground. He addressed America’s gun policy, saying, “The system does not work. It’s important that when you know there’s something that’s not working, and it’s to the detriment of the public, you have to stand up.”

Dick’s quit selling their definition of “high capacity magazines” and “assault rifles” in the wake of the shooting in Parkland, Florida while a bunch of teenagers demanded perfectly innocent people give up their rights to suit the feelings of those upset. The company also raised its own personal minimum purchase age for long guns to 21, according to a report by Breitbart. 

But Stack should probably not be too comfortable with a loss of $150 million.  The retail apocalypse is upon us, and Dick’s could now be in the crosshairs, and they’ll probably be upset that that terminology was used. On April 17, 2018, Breitbart News reported that Dick’s would not be sending the unsold “assault rifles” and “high capacity” magazines back to manufacturers. Rather, they would destroy them wasting millions of dollars.

Dick’s Sporting Goods Will DESTROY All Guns Removed From Shelves

“Thoughts and prayers are not enough,” the company said in a statement. “We support and respect the Second Amendment, and we recognize and appreciate that the vast majority of gun owners in this country are responsible, law-abiding citizens. But we have to help solve the problem that’s in front of us.”

So they intend to destroy guns that good people would never use to harm anyone unless a self-defense situation warranted it.  That’s like castrating yourself because your neighbor has too many kids. But no one has ever accused a gun control activist of using logic.  –SHTFPlan

The result of the decision to pull the guns from the shelves and destroy them has resulted in a monetary loss that’s massive and noticeable. In the era of the “retail apocalypse,” look for this retailer to be added to the list of those closing stores or liquidating in 2019.

Trump Tells the Truth: Sanctions Cause People to Suffer

This week President Trump admitted what the Washington policy establishment of both parties would rather be kept quiet. Asked why he intervened to block a new round of sanctions on North Korea, he told the media that he believes the people of North Korea have suffered enough. “They are suffering greatly in North Korea…And I just didn’t think additional sanctions at this time were necessary,” he said.

The foreign policy establishment in Washington, whether they are neocons, “humanitarian interventionists,” so-called “realists,” or even progressives have long embraced sanctions as a way to pressure governments into doing what Washington wants without having to resort to war.

During my time in Congress, I saw many of my antiwar colleagues on the Left vote for sanctions because they believed sanctions are more “humane” than war. Neocons and other interventionists endorse sanctions because they know that sooner or later they will lead to war, their preferred foreign policy.

With his characteristic bluntness, President Trump has exposed this big lie. Sanctions are not a more humane alternative to war. They are just another form of war. In fact they are perhaps the cruelest form of war because they do not target the military of an adversary, but rather the innocent civilian population. As President Trump said, they make people suffer.

Sanctions are meant to make life so miserable for the civilian population that it rises up and overthrows a leader out of favor in Washington. In Iraq in the 1990s, those sanctions cost the lives of a half a million children, but then-Secretary of State Madeleine Albright infamously said she thought the price was worth it. But still the people didn’t rise up and overthrow Saddam even as their lives became more and more miserable. So the neocons had to concoct some lies about WMDs and Iraq was invaded anyway. An estimated million more people were killed in that war. So much for the “humanitarianism” of sanctions.

Sanctions often target water supplies, sewage treatment, medicine, food supply and other essentials for civilian life. After the people suffer under the “soft” war of sanctions, though, they most often are forced to suffer again as the US attacks anyway. That was the case in Iraq, Libya, Syria, and elsewhere. And it may soon be the case for Venezuela and perhaps even North Korea.

In Yemen, sanctions have contributed to the death of some 80,000 children from starvation. Millions more are facing starvation, yet they continue to resist Saudi and US demands that they overthrow their government.

Sanctions do not inspire people to rise up and overthrow their governments. Most civilians suffering under sanctions couldn’t throw out their rulers even if they wanted to – after being impoverished and malnourished for years they are really expected to take on their own government’s military?

I am glad to hear President Trump tell the truth about sanctions. They hurt the powerless in the false hope that the powerful will change their behavior. No new sanctions on North Korea is a good start. Now how about dismantling the inhumane and counterproductive sanctions from Caracas to Damascus and from Moscow to Beirut. Let’s return to a foreign policy of peace and engagement, backed by a strong military for our defense alone.

Hold Hillary Clinton Accountable For Russiagate Hoax

After the Mueller report plopped with a wet thud on the media, everyone is blaming everyone else.

MSNBC and CNN are blaming the fake experts they invited on and interviewed night after night, urging them to make outlandish predictions that Mueller would soon have Trump locked up for treason. Like Inspector Renault, they’re shocked that the baseless claims they had been repeating were nonsense. And a few of the experts who turned it up to 11 will no longer be invited into media green rooms.

Meanwhile, the politicians are blaming the media, even though Rep. Adam Schiff, Rep. Maxine Waters, Rep. Jerry Nadler, Rep Ted Lieu, and many other political reps were every bit as bad as the ‘experts’. Some, like Schiff, are doubling down and will go on investigating Russian collusion until the media stops inviting them on morning shows to discuss the nothing that they found last week and the week before.

Oddly, no one is blaming the political arsonist who started the dumpster fire that is Russiagate.

The Russian conspiracy theory was invented by the Clinton campaign. It was used as a pretext for spying on Trump associates. And then became an argument for invalidating the results of the 2016 election.

And while the Republicans and Democrats tore each other apart over Russiagate, Hillary Clinton sipped her chardonnays and spent the evenings cackling madly at the TV while watching Washington D.C. burn.

The Russiagate conspiracy theory had multiple purposes. The most cynical one was exempting Hillary and her Clintonworlders from any of the blame for the election defeat. Invoking Russia was also an effort to create an election issue that Clinton, a former Secretary of State, could claim expertise on. It would also neatly counter Trump’s focus on Islamic terrorists and on China with a Cold War boogeyman.

Russia split lefties along interventionist lines. Hardcore anti-war types became Russia skeptics. Most of the rest went along because they hated Trump more than they cared about foreign policy. That’s why, aside from Israel, foreign policy has mostly been absent from the 2020 battles even as the radical primaries push Democrat candidates further leftward on a wide variety of domestic issues.

That’s strikingly different from the 2016 primaries where Hillary’s opponents repeatedly attacked her over the Iraq War. This time around, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is the only candidate to run on a leftist foreign policy platform. And has next to nothing to show for it. Even Senator Bernie Sanders, a Castro and Soviet sympathizer, is carefully steering clear of foreign policy except for the ritualistic bashing of Israel.

Why is foreign policy out of bounds? One reason is a surplus of inexperienced candidates who have spent hardly any time in national office, some who never did, squatting in the 2020 clown car. But a big part of the reason is that Hillary Clinton’s domestic positions are seen as fair game for lefty critics, but, due to Russiagate, her foreign policy people and her international positions are viewed as off-limits.

2020 candidates have a choice between endorsing Hillary Clinton’s interventionism, “We came, we saw, he died”, which would earn them the ire of grass-roots leftists, or avoiding the subject altogether. The clowns in the 2020 clownmobile car don’t want to step on Russiagate trip wires or offend the lefties.

That’s why the only safe subject to tilt leftward on is Israel.

After the Mueller report fell, they may be a little bit more willing to question interventionism, but the base remains passionately convinced that Russia plotted to put President Trump in the White House.

The post-Mueller poll by Reuters shows 84% of Democrats still believe in collusion. 57% strongly agree.

Hillary Clinton may not be a 2020 honored guest, but her legacy is safe. 2020 Dems will be cautious about criticizing her, not only because she still has a fan base, but because she never really lost. The election was stolen by a bunch of Russian bots on Facebook. And no lessons, except for the need to censor social media, have been learned from her defeat. Once again, Hillary Clinton got away with it.

The media deserves plenty of the blame. But MSNBC, CNN, the New York Times and the Washington Post, not to mention the outlets more explicitly tied to the Steele report, were acting as Hillary’s greedy ideological catspaws. They got rich off the hoax, but they didn’t invent it. Hillary Clinton’s people did.

Any real reckoning should begin with the mother of all the hoaxes.

But that too is very risky. Hillary Clinton tied in Obama’s people into the conspiracy. Any reckoning of Hillary’s role in Russiagate would rebound and take down sizable chunks of the Obama administration.

Once again, Hillary Clinton used complicity, tying multiple interests into mainstreaming her hoax, that her lie had become too big to fail. Like the banking system, it would take too much down with it. The media is a safer target. Its only collateral damage is its non-existent credibility. Obama’s people however committed actual crimes. Eavesdropping on the political opposition is redolent of Watergate.

And while the Dems no longer need Hillary, they very much need Obama. Especially if the top of the 2020 ticket ends up being a white New Englander with as much appeal to black people as mayonnaise.

Take down Hillary over Russiagate, and Obama goes with her. It’s safer to just leave her alone.

Any meaningful reckoning of the Russiagate hoax won’t end with the media. It will follow it through Fusion GPS, the DNC, and Clinton associates who hoped to swing the election with one last dirty trick. It will trace the passage of the Clinton conspiracy theory through the DOJ and the FBI. It will measure the institutional damage inflicted on the government, not just the permanent tainting of the 2016 election.

Nobody complicit in Russiagate is about to allow that to happen. And so everyone, from the media on down, is willing to be Hillary’s fall guys instead. The Clintons have never had a shortage of those.

Hillary Clinton’s political career is over. But despite the odds, she’s managed to evade blame not only for her crimes, but for her terrible political instincts and failures. And she is able to sit back and watch Democrats and Republicans still fighting it out over a game that she set into motion years ago.

It’s hard not to believe that she doesn’t feel glee at the damage she is continuing to inflict on America.

Russiagate was not a media failure. The media these days is just a Democrat messaging operation. Its broadcasts and articles exist to promote the partisan agendas of its political faction. Holding the media accountable for spreading smears, lies and conspiracy theories is like blaming the dog, instead of the owner, when it makes a mess on your lawn. The media makes messes, but it doesn’t originate them.

MSNBC, CNN and the Washington Post can’t and won’t clean up the Russiagate mess. The only one who can is a retired politician dictating books, doing speaking tours and watching TV in her home in Chappaqua, New York. She is also the only person to have escaped a Russiagate reckoning.

Unlike her fellow Democrats, she has nothing at stake in this post-Clinton political order and is happy to watch the country burn, and her party with it, to slake the frustrated anger of her final defeat.

Russiagate is Hillary Clinton’s revenge on everyone. On Trump, on Republicans, and on her own party. If she can’t have the White House, she can still set the agenda by watching her big lie take over the national conversation, hounding Trump and forcing the Dems to fight her war using her last dirty trick.

The only way to stop the damage that the last two years have inflicted on our country is to hold Hillary, Obama, their associates and officials accountable for the catastrophic dirty trick known as Russiagate.

Irrefutable Evidence: 10 Videos That Show Creepy Joe Biden Touching Women Inappropriately

Has the #MeToo movement destroyed Joe Biden’s chances of ever getting to the White House?  In virtually all of the early polls for the race for the Democratic nomination, Biden had been leading.  And most polls have shown him with a sizable lead over Donald Trump in a hypothetical head to head contest.  So there was a very real chance that Joe Biden could have become the next president of the United States, but many believe that his political career has now been brought to an end.  It was anticipated that President Trump and the Republicans would attack Biden relentlessly once he had secured the nomination, but what makes this recent attack so devastating for the Biden campaign is the fact that it is coming from the left.  Joe Biden has been accused of inappropriate touching by a former Democratic nominee for lieutenant governor in Nevada, and the mainstream media is pushing this story really hard.  Could it be possible that someone is trying to push Biden out of the race before it has even really begun?

I would like to share with you what Lucy Flores had to say about Joe Biden in her own words.  But let me warn you that there is one expletive in this quote.  Since this is such an important national story about a man that could potentially become our next president, I decided that it was best to leave this quote unedited

Just before the speeches, we were ushered to the side of the stage where we were lined up by order of introduction. As I was taking deep breaths and preparing myself to make my case to the crowd, I felt two hands on my shoulders. I froze. “Why is the vice-president of the United States touching me?”

I felt him get closer to me from behind. He leaned further in and inhaled my hair. I was mortified. I thought to myself, “I didn’t wash my hair today and the vice-president of the United States is smelling it. And also, what in the actual fuck? Why is the vice-president of the United States smelling my hair?” He proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head. My brain couldn’t process what was happening. I was embarrassed. I was shocked. I was confused. There is a Spanish saying, “tragame tierra,” it means, “earth, swallow me whole.” I couldn’t move and I couldn’t say anything. I wanted nothing more than to get Biden away from me. My name was called and I was never happier to get on stage in front of an audience.

During a subsequent interview, Flores stated that she was motivated to come forward when she saw photos and video clips of Joe Biden touching many other women inappropriately on social media

But the #MeToo movement and Biden’s serious consideration of a presidential run changed her mind. Her friends and political allies in Nevada were talking to Biden and his associates about his potential bid this month. And the pictures and video clips of Biden hugging women, caressing their hair and holding on to their shoulders in too-familiar ways began surfacing on social media.

“When I started to see pictures of him behaving in the same way he did with me and with other women, it was very triggering,” she said. “I felt so much empathy for them. I knew what they were going through. I had been in their shoes.

It would be difficult to overstate how damaging this could potentially be to Joe Biden’s campaign.

In the era of the #MeToo movement, even a hint that a male candidate may have been sexually inappropriate with a woman is often enough to completely destroy a political career.

Of course Biden’s people are scrambling to contain the damage, and an “apology” was quickly issued

In a statement to Fox News, Biden spokesman Bill Russo said the former vice president “was pleased to support” Flores’s 2014 campaign “and to speak on her behalf” at the rally.

“Neither then, nor in the years since, did he or the staff with him at the time have an inkling that Ms. Flores had been at any time uncomfortable, nor do they recall what she describes,” the statement said. “But Vice President Biden believes that Ms. Flores has every right to share her own recollection and reflections, and that it is a change for better in our society that she has the opportunity to do so. He respects Ms. Flores as a strong and independent voice in our politics and wishes her only the best.”

That actually doesn’t sound like much of an “apology” to me, and Biden certainly did not acknowledge that he had done anything wrong.

And some of Biden’s supporters are actually suggesting that this was a “politically-motivated” stunt by Flores.  At this point we know that Flores endorsed Bernie Sanders in 2016, and we also know that she has attended events for at least 3 other 2020 candidates

Ms. Flores had a falling out with some in Mr. Sanders’s orbit and left the Our Revolution board. She attended former Representative Beto O’Rourke’s campaign kickoff in El Paso on Saturday, but said she is not supporting any candidate at the moment, though she allowed that she “probably will down the road.”

She also said she had attended an event for Julián Castro and was part of a group that met with Kamala Harris’s campaign manager.

Could it be possible that Flores was encouraged to release this information now by another campaign?

We may never know, but many are speculating that an all-out attempt is being made to get Joe Biden out of this race.  On Twitter, Emerald Robinson suggested that “they’re going for the knockout early”…

Obama is backing Kamala. Joe Biden has been told not to run – he wants to run anyway. So they’re going for the knockout early. Will it stop Joe from running? My guess: yes it will.

We will see what happens, but it is hard to imagine too many on the left rallying to support Joe Biden once people see all the evidence that is out there.

Ilhan Omar: “To Me, The Hijab Means Power, Liberation, Beauty, & Resistance”

Vogue Arabia on Thursday published a glowing puff piece fawning over Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar, who has, said Vogue, “made history in her adopted country,” apparently while hating every minute of it. Life in Trump’s America, she said, is “an everyday assault”; she did not, however, say anything about moving back to that paradise of multiculturalism, her native Somalia. Instead, she is bringing it here, at least in one aspect of Sharia observance: “To me,” she said, “the hijab means power, liberation, beauty, and resistance.”

What would the innumerable victims of the hijab say to that?

Omar said nothing about them. Instead, she painted the hijab as if it were entirely a matter of each woman’s free choice: “For me, that is how I raise my kids. I work to remove obstacles so they can live at their best and happiest selves. If that translates to adapting the hijab, that’s fine. If they don’t, that’s also fine. They have freedom of choice. Society tends to place lots of limitations, depending on what gender you are. I want my kids to be free. Walk in your own path. We are as much worthy of joy, power, and pleasure as the next human. We are deserving and we don’t need permission or an invitation to exist and to step into our power.”

Maybe she doesn’t.

But what does Ilhan Omar think about Aqsa Parvez, whose Muslim father choked her to death with her hijab after she refused to wear it?

Or Amina Muse Ali, a Christian woman in Somalia whom Muslims murdered because she wasn’t wearing a hijab?

Has she shown any concern for the 40 women who were murdered in Iraq in 2007 for not wearing the hijab; or for Alya Al-Safar, whose Muslim cousin threatened to kill her and harm her family because she stopped wearing the hijab in Britain; or for Amira Osman Hamid, who faced whipping in Sudan for refusing to wear the hijab; or for the Egyptian girl, also named Amira, who committed suicide after being brutalized by her family for refusing to wear the hijab; or for the Muslim and non-Muslim teachers at the Islamic College of South Australia who were told they had to wear the hijab or be fired; or for the women in Chechnya whom police shot with paintballs because they weren’t wearing hijab; or for the other women in Chechnya who were threatened by men with automatic rifles for not wearing hijab; or for the elementary school teachers in Tunisia who were threatened with death for not wearing hijab; or for the Syrian schoolgirls who were forbidden to go to school unless they wore hijab; or for the women in Gaza whom Hamas has forced to wear hijab; or for the women in Iran who protested against the regime, even before the recent uprising, by daring to take off their hijabs; or for the women in London whom Muslim thugs threatened to murder if they didn’t wear hijab; or for the anonymous young Muslim woman who doffed her hijab outside her home and started living a double life in fear of her parents; or for the fifteen girls in Saudi Arabia who were killed when the religious police wouldn’t let them leave their burning school building because they had taken off their hijabs in their all-female environment; or for the girl in Italy whose mother shaved her head for not wearing hijab; or for all the other women and girls who have been killed or threatened, or who live in fear for daring not to wear the hijab?

Courageous women in the Islamic Republic of Iran are taking off their hijabs as a sign of resistance to the oppressive Sharia regime under which they live, and at least 29 women have been arrested for doing so.

For far too many women around the world, the hijab is not a symbol of power, liberation, beauty, and resistance, but of their own powerlessness, oppression, dehumanization and subjugation.

Who is standing in solidarity with them?

Not Ilhan Omar.

Or Vogue.

Pennsylvania: Taxpayers On The Hook For “Annoyed Bully Cop Who Beat The Crap Out Of Kid” For No Reason”

Pittsburgh, PA — A belligerent and violent cop was convicted in 2017 of violating the civil rights of a teenager by savagely beating him at a high school football game. The entire incident, which looks like a giant bullying a small child, was captured on video and led to the initial firing of officer Stephen Matakovich, 48, and the subsequent charges.

Matakovich “was an annoyed bully who beat the crap out of a drunk kid,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephen Gilson told jurors after his conviction. “This was an officer abusing his power.”

Now, nearly four years after this officer’s abuse of power, the taxpayers will be shelling out $77,500 to Matakovich’s victim, Gabriel Despres.

“The settlement, from a monetary perspective, is good. What’s better, in this case, was that Stephen Matakovich was held accountable, that the city of Pittsburgh was held accountable,” attorney Alec Wright said.

As TFTP reported at the time, in 2017, the officer received an unprecedented 27-month sentence and was also forced to pay restitution to his victim from his own pocket.

Matakovich’s defense attorneys had argued against imprisonment, saying he had led an “honorable and lawful life,” according to KDKA.

But the pre-sentence report detailed a pattern of questionable arrests involving Matakovich over several years, and states that he “never used the lowest amount of force available.”

The victim’s mother took the stand during the hearing and told the court how she hoped Matakovich will be sent to prison.

“It’s hard watching your son being beaten like that. We teach our children to respect police officers then this happens and I think it’s just a blemish on the Pittsburgh police, on all police,” Sherry Despres said.

Matakovich originally faced two charges, the first being the violation of Gabriel Despres’ civil rights and the second accusing him of falsifying the police report on the incident. Somehow he was acquitted on the second charge, convincing the jury that he did not lie about or exaggerate Despres’ actions which caused the officer to push and hit him.

Matakovich said he had to beat the small teenager at that time because he felt threatened. After watching the video, this claim becomes utterly hysterical. However, somehow a jury bought it.

Naturally, the violent officer’s defense team painted him as the victim, claiming that Despres’ posture and demeanor at that time were threatening to Matakovich, who was surrounded by five security guards and in spite of the teen being unarmed and inebriated.

According to WTAE, lead defense attorney Tina Miller, a former federal prosecutor, told the jury that dissecting the 29-second encounter in a one-week trial was unfair to Matakovich, who could be trusted for the “split-second” judgment he made.

“Nobody is going to say to a police officer, ‘I’m going to assault you,’” Miller told the jury. “You’re not going to advertise what you’re going to do. Your actions are going to be subtle. It’s not going to be like some poster or (TV commercial).”

She defended Matakovich as “one of those guys on that thin blue line between chaos and order” before asking the jury, “Do we really want to second-guess?”

The prosecution even responded in jest at the outright silly claims of the defense in trying to justify this crazed cop’s violence.

“The only way (Matakovich) can convince you that what he did was reasonable is to convince you that you can’t trust your own eyes,” Gilson said.

As the video shows, Despres calmly stood with his arms down at his sides when Matakovich suddenly shoved the teen to the ground and began punching him in the head. Although Despres did not provoke the attack and did not appear to fight back, the off-duty cop repeatedly struck him while several other security guards watched.

In an attempt to establish the ex-cop’s history of violence, county prosecutors introduced a motion during the proceedings detailing Matakovich’s use of unnecessary force against 56 other people and another case in which he assaulted a security guard then arrested him on false charges.

Out of those 56 reports, 20 cases involved strikes to the face and head, with 17 of those resulting in injuries including broken noses, broken jaws and loss of consciousness.

According to the prosecution and video footage, Matakovich brutalized innocent people and arrested them on false charges in order to cover up his own violent provocations. Luckily, video evidence of this cop’s rage finally put an end to his rash of belligerence.

Matakovich’s sentence should be held as the standard for cops who abuse their authority and attack innocent people. If enough cops are sent to jail and forced to pay for their own crimes, rest assured police brutality would be far less common.

Jihad & the Media in an Age of Delusion

On Sunday the BBC reported about another horrible news story from London: a knifeman went on a stabbing spree of “defenceless” people in London. The story revealed less about the incident it was purporting to report on than it did about our age of anti-reality and delusion.

In this age, it is not difficult to step back and observe almost indiscernible but seismic historical shifts in the making — not in the big-bang news events, but in the nitty-gritty details of the social fabric of our daily lives, where life happens. It is usually not so easy to detect such subtleties, let alone observe the silent measures a nation or a civilization takes when it quietly but most decidedly has… given up. One need not be an anthropologist to detect seismic changes in human behavior or societies.

First, it’s language. Language is key. Subtle and not-so-subtle restrictions are placed on what would offend the invading force with its hair-trigger sensibilities.  These restrictions are rigorously enforced by quisling societal institutions — media, academia, and so forth. So, for example, “Muslim” is replaced with “South Asian” or “Asian,” with no fear that the “South Asians” or “Asians” will bomb a pop concert, mow down scores of families on a national holiday such as Bastille Day or Halloween or Christmas, shoot up a gay nightclub, and so forth. Actual South Asians and Asians have held demos against the media using them to cover for jihadis, but no media reported on them, of course. Only the small, sagacious group of readers who follow websites such as the Geller Report were aware of the South Asian community’s opposition to the wrongful blame.

Every time there is an attack by a jihadi, all apologies are extended by the host Western country, with admonitions of impending “phobia” of Islam and backlash, and so the cycle of self-flagellation begins and builds with each ensuing attack (all 34,800 since 9/11).

In initial reports of all jihad attacks, we are told: “it is not terror-related.” The shifting definition of terror is slippery but expected. Then President George W. Bush dropped the ball on September 20, 2001, when he danced around whether “A is A,” decidedly avoiding jihad and Islam. Even with the thick, acrid smell of burnt blood and flesh, ash and steel in the NYC air, Bush opted instead for the vague, blame-free “War on Terror.”

The root cause, above all, is never to be spoken of. Verboten. Anyone who dares cross that line will be ultimately destroyed — a pariah, his or her good name murdered, unable to make a living. You will submit or you will cease to exist, literally or figuratively. There is no motive, we are told; the motive, we are told, is “mental illness.”

There is almost nothing in Sunday’s BBC article about the London stabbings that is correct, save for the reporting that four people were stabbed. After that, it is all… editorial and subtle propaganda. This has all the earmarks of jihad, but it would be a horror, blasphemous (Islamophobic) to dare say it. When there is an incident that isn’t jihad, it is immediately cast in the media as right-wing, white-supremacy bullocks. Absolutely. But jihad is quite different. You can never surmise, let alone speculate about whether some attack or incident might be jihad. And when it is jihad, you still cannot say it. If you use the word Muslim — as in, “Devout Muslim shouting allahu akbar stabs…” no one will publish it, and social media platforms will block the link. You will land in Facebook jail. Your first infraction gets you three days suspension. Your next “violation” will land you in FB jail for a week, then a month, and eventually, you are terminated.

The BBC headline states that the stabbings were “random attacks.” But they were not random if the knifemen wanted to kill unbelievers. Then they were not random at all. There is a reason these folks were targeted.

The article goes on to say, “The Metropolitan Police said the motive ‘appears to be solely to inflict harm’ as none of the victims were robbed or engaged in conversation before they were attacked.” That, too, screams jihad. It is the very essence of a jihad terror attack. Instead, the BBC tells us, “mental health issues may be a factor.” That they can say; that is accepted language in the age of jihad. The mental health community is not going to blow up Buckingham Palace.

There’s a lot of fluff in the piece, but what the article does not tell you is that Edmonton is home to London’s largest Turkish community. Or that a widow and grandmother described as “such a sweet lady” was beheaded in her own backyard by a devout Muslim in Edmonton not that long ago.

The attack is referred to as “GBH.” Note the obscure terms. One might say that grievous bodily harm is too harsh, but the media is shielding the perp, not the reader.

This act of sheer terror is getting no press. And why would it?

Rape Victim Claims Gloria Allred Failed To Honor Agreement – Now She Faces Threats Of Arrest & Judgments Of Over $1 Million

I’ve reported on the story of Deanna Williams in a series of articles.  In those articles, I have referenced the woman who refers to herself as “the most famous female attorney in the country” to the wishes of Ms. Williams concerning the report.  However, following another interview with Ms. Williams and seeing her case is desperate to the point of threats of arrest, Williams believes attorney Gloria Allred has failed to honor their agreement.

If you are unfamiliar with the story, there are three previous reports:

The last report and video interview took place just a few days ago.

Ms. Allred has been hailed in the media as an attorney who comes to the aid of women, and no doubt she did so in the matter of Ms. Williams, but Ms. Williams claims that Allred failed to honor her retainer agreement by making sure that previous attorneys were paid.

Ms. Williams has desperately attempted to have attorneys come to her aid after numerous attorneys she employed acted inappropriately, unprofessionally, negligently and even what seems to be criminally, according to Williams.

As Ms. Williams awaits being interviewed by a Florida Bar investigator for several attorneys she has hired to represent her who seem to have engaged in malpractice, theft and negligence, she remains under threat of arrest.  However, though the case may be confusing to many because it seems to have “many working parts,” it appears that Ms. Williams’ problems come down to one specific thing.  She claims, and her retainer agreement with Gloria Allred and Jonathan Heller appear to confirm, that her attorneys were to pay her previous attorney fees and liens from the money they received in her rape settlement case.

The specific words of the retainer agreement dated August 14, 2012, read exactly, including underline, as follows under the heading “Attorney’s Fees.”

“As for attorneys fees, you agree to pay us a fee equal to forty (40%) percent of the gross amount recovered.  This percentage constitutes the entire amount of fees you will be responsible to pay us, as well as all your prior counsel.  Towards that end, we will take all reasonable steps to negotiate prior counsels’ undetermined fees which they may claim by way of their respectively filed charging liens.  This includes the claim of your first layer, Peter Itzler.”

Williams told The Washington Standard that she had a great concern with changing attorneys because she wanted to make sure prior attorneys fees would be paid out of the money the new attorneys would receive if they were able to settle the case.

As you can see from the direct words of the retainer, which is not part of the non-disclosure agreement in the rape case, attorneys Jonathan A. Heller, Gloria Allred and Nathan Goldberg agreed to receive 40% of the final settlement in the case, which they were able to resolve in a matter of weeks.

The amount of the settlement is unknown due to a non-disclosure agreement signed by Ms. Williams.  That amount is irrelevant to her claim.

If these fees and liens were paid, there would never have been a suit against her by attorneys in 2013, and the subsequent court allowing what it calls a “substitution” of attorney Scott Mager of Mager Paruas to the plaintiffs in place of Michael Dolce, a man who purchased the right to sue Williams from  Dolce, according to Ms. Williams.  Williams claims that if Mager had purchased a settled judgment, it would be legal under Florida law, but she says that a third party, who never aided her in her rape case interfering is illegal.

To be fair, I have contacted an attorney and paralegal for assistance in simply understanding a couple of phrases in the section I mentioned.  When I mentioned the fact that the wording read “respectively filed charging liens,” I was told that is where the loophole was and that since a 2016 ruling by Judge LaRose reversed a previous temporary injunction on the holding of Ms. Williams’ assets in this case.  The reason, according to Judge LaRose was “because the trial court committed legal error in granting the motion to preserve assets,” as well as “neither the magistrate nor the trial court held an evidentiary hearing… substantial, competent evidence was not provided to establish entitlement to a temporary injunction.”

Williams claims that the attorneys did speak about the payment to the attorneys between themselves.  So, clearly, they were aware of liens and fees prior to taking on the case.

During transition, Ms. Williams previously retained her new attorney Gloria Allred and they did speak with one another about fees and whether or not they were wanted to stay on the case at the service of Mr. Heller.

Calls to Mr. Heller have gone unreturned, and according to Ms. Williams, when she asked for canceled checks or verification that her previous attorney fees and liens were taken care of, he failed to provide evidence.

Thus, this is why she has been placed in the situation she is in from 2013 to the present.  While it is true that the court is merely acting as the court, one would think that seeing the dire nature of this woman’s condition and threat of arrest in a case in which a man, Scott Mager, who had no skin in the game during her original rape case though he continues to claim to have been in this “from the beginning,” is awarded over $1 million dollars.  This was largely due to the fact that Williams’ attorney had filed his appearance in the inactive rape case rather than the one he was retained to represent her in.  This led to Williams not having any representation in the court and ultimately a final judgment against her for over $1 million.  Additionally, that attorney, G. Ware Cornell, intercepted a $200,000 payment that was to be paid to Ms. Williams, which she never authorized him to do and at least $100,000 of that money was issued to Scott Mager under direction of Judge Jay B. Rosman, who just weeks later would be arrested in a prostitution ring sting.

It’s interesting that a judge who was busted for a sex crime is presiding over a case resulting from a sex crime.

In a letter submitted to the court on March 19, 2019, Williams pleaded with the court about the unethical nature of what has transpired.  Here is the full text of her letter as typed via the Lee County court documents in the case (13-CA-3181).

As you’re aware, I’m the rape victim Mr. Mager purchased the rights to sue for profit after attorney Ware Cornell made the error of entering his appearance under the inactive rape case which allowed a default judgment opening the door for Mr. mager to profit after my rights were denied and funds were stolen by wire fraud by Attorney G. Ware Cornell who then promised the intercepted fund to Mr. Mager.

As Mr. Mager is aware, by email to Mike Corso in Octboer 2017, Ware Cornell falsely claimed authorization to receive funds on my behalf and requested that a $200,000 payment be wired to Mr. Cornell instead of being sent to me.  The stolen funds were later distributed by Judge Jay B. Rosman who distributed stolen funds more than a month after the theft.  The attempt to clean up the stolen funds by Distributing them through a judge who was arrested for a sex crime while presiding over a case arising from a sex crime makes the funds that Mr. Mager is still in receipt of no less stolen.

Mr. Mager continues to commit crimes against me using the court as a weapon and a shield to conceal his illegal acts.  In May of 2018, Mr. Mager, submitted to the court and agreed entry that was absolutely fraudulent.  Both sides had not agreed to irrevocably transfer any funds in the underlying case to Mr. Mager.  It flies in the face of reason to believe I would have agreed to such a thing.  It is simply preposterous.  In an affidavit filed with the court upon discovery of the fraudulent order, my attorney at the time Mike Chionopoulos details the “error.”

The level of Mager’s hubris while requesting that a rape victim with multiple sclerosis dealing with complications of a high-risk pregnancy and PTSD be jailed for contempt for not turning over extensive financial documents which are nearly impossible to provide after losing her home due to Mr. Mager’s theft of hundreds of thousands of dollars is astonishing.  It would shock the conscience of anyone who possesses a conscience.  Mr. Mager is not a victim of anything but an individual who knowingly bought the rights to sue a rape victim for profit after Michael Dolce abandoned the case after Dolce missed important deadlines and walked out of mediation in the underlying case crying when opposing counsel didn’t want to hear explicit details of Dolce being anally raped as a child.

It is in light of Mr. Mager’s repeated dishonesty and omission of relevant fact before the court that I ask that all attempts to threaten and intimidate using the court as a weapon stop immediately.  I asked that deposition respect my disabilities as a woman with multiple sclerosis and and complex medical issues at present.  I ask that deposition is set at a time that works for both parties and I am no longer threatened with arrest.

Unfortunately, due to Mr. Mager’s continued possession of funds stolen from me by fraud upon the court, I am unable to be represented by counsel.  I cannot even afford necessary medical care.  I am most vulnerable as I have been denied the right to have representation due to the thefts erroneously reflected in court records as legitimate funds received by Scott Mager.

I am asking that my health and safety be respected during and before deposition.  I am requesting deposition be scheduled at a time agreeable to both parties.  I look forward to the record accurately reflecting what has happened in this case as opposed to Mr. Mager’s version of events as a party who did not participate in the underlying case.  Additionally, I ask that it be noted that I am being denied representation in this matter due to impossibility noted above.

Thank you,

Deanna Williams

Several calls to Mager Paruas for comment by The Washington Standard have gone unreturned.

What Ms. Williams is currently going through since 2013, following the settlement, appears to be because her previous attorneys were not paid as agreed to in the retainer.  If payment was made at the time, then this entire lawsuit is a fraud.  The lawsuit and prior settlement of fees cannot both be true.

Ms. Williams is in contact with both federal authorities, as well as the Florida Bar and Florida Attorney General in the matter and an interview is being scheduled with a Florida Bar investigator in the matter.

When The Washington Standard reached out to attorney Allred regarding the payment of previous attorneys, she responded directly in an email stating,

We represented Ms. Williams approximately 7 years ago.  She has had a number of lawyers since then.

Any legal problems that Ms. Williams faces has nothing to do with our representation of her and there is no factual basis for the assertions set forth in your email.

We suggest that you review the public documents in the case of Victim Justice, P.C., et al v. v. Deanna Williams, Case number 13-CA-003181 pending in Lee County, Florida, prior to making any further false statements.

Also, you do not appear to have possession of all the relevant confidential documents. Your statements are based on incomplete information which has led you to a false and misleading conclusion. Ethical rules which prohibit disclosure of attorney client communications preclude us from providing additional documents to you or commenting further.

It is true, I don’t have certain confidential documents.  I agree.  I have read the signed retainer agreement, and it seems fairly clear that if prior attorneys had been paid, Ms. Williams’ current situation would not be what it is, as an attorney who had nothing to do with the case is going after her for over $1 million.

Ms. Williams has also left voicemail messages at Ms. Allred’s office pleading with her and her associates to honor their agreement and pay the prior fees and liens with no response.

Now, I ask, why is that?

If you would like to help Ms. Williams not only survive as she has had virtually all her money stolen in the process of this, but acquire an attorney to fight back because they demand a retainer fee to take the case, there is a Go Fund Me page set up here.

Media Only Now Willing To Cover Joe Biden’s Creepiness When It Suits Their Agenda

Why did the media ignore Joe Biden’s creepiness for eight years only to report on it now?

Here’s a typical apologetic.

All of those frames made appealing pitches just a few years ago. Editors would be happy to get a “lovable Uncle Joe strikes again” story. The environment is not the same now. Certainly the media is not nearly perfect when it comes to covering gender and power. But in the era of #MeToo, there is far less appetite for a story that makes light of a candidate behaving badly toward women.

It’s not about #MeToo.

If Biden were a sitting senator who wasn’t running against prog favorites, this story would stay boxed up. And Flores, a former Bernie ally, would never have come forward.

It’s not a new enlightenment. It’s the media’s ongoing use as a political hit machine for certain political interests.

In the big picture, damaging stories against lefty Dems get covered up. Unless there’s an interest by even leftier Dems in taking them down. It’s no coincidence that this story appears just as Biden is prepping his entry into the race.

We saw the same thing with a Beto O’Rourke story.

Times have changed. Reporters now would look twice at a new politician who is handsy on camera. They’d ask questions about it and likely look into his private conduct. And women like Flores are taking big risks and speaking out.

Nah, they wouldn’t.

It took a lot of work to call Franken out and there’s constant talk of a comeback. 2014 was not some sort of dark age. Attitudes haven’t changed all that much.

Only the politics of it did.

New York Times Admits That “Withdrawing From Iran Nuclear Deal Has Paid Dividends”

When even the New York Times and its house Never-Trumper Bret Stephens are applauding Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal, you know that the results have been decisively in Trump’s favor.

I detail just how bad the Iran nuclear deal really was in The Complete Infidel’s Guide to Iran.

That many, if not all, the Democrat presidential candidates want to reenter it should be regarded as suicidal and treasonous if we had a sane public discourse today, which, of course, we do not.

“The Foreign Policy Fiasco That Wasn’t: Withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal has paid dividends,” by Bret Stephens, New York Times, March 29, 2019:

It’s been nearly a year since Donald Trump made the decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal, to loud cries that it would bring nothing but woe to the United States and our interests in the Middle East.

So far, the result has been closer to the opposite.

That much was further made clear thanks to excellent reporting this week by The Times’s Ben Hubbard. “Iran’s financial crisis, exacerbated by American sanctions,” he writes from Lebanon, “appears to be undermining its support for militant groups and political allies who bolster Iranian influence in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and elsewhere.”

Well, heavens to Betsy. When the Obama administration negotiated the nuclear deal, the president acknowledged that sanctions relief for Tehran would inevitably mean more money for groups like Hezbollah. But he also insisted it wouldn’t make much of a difference in terms of Iran’s capacity to make mischief in the Middle East.

Hubbard’s reporting suggests otherwise. Iran can no longer finance civilian projects or credit lines in Syria. Hezbollah fighters and Palestinian militants aren’t being paid, and their families are losing subsidized housing. Even Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah has complained publicly about the effects of U.S. sanctions.

Nor are those the only benefits of withdrawal. The U.S. is no longer looking the other way at Hezbollah’s criminal enterprises, including drug smuggling and money laundering, the way it did during the Obama administration in order to engage Iran diplomatically. Iran’s protest movement, quashed in 2009, has shown signs of renewed life, not least because of public fury that the regime spends money on foreign adventures while economic conditions worsen at home.

Most importantly, Iran has not used the U.S. withdrawal from the deal to restart its nuclear programs, despite its threats to do so. Part of this has to do with Tehran’s belief that it can wait Trump out, especially since Democrats like Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris have promised to re-enter the deal if elected….

The Associated Press & NY Times “Not Real News” Series Is Not Real #FAKE

You just can’t make this stuff up. The Associated Press and New York Times, the world’s leading disseminators and dictators of what the national and international news outlets write and run in their publications, has published a piece by AP writer Beatrce Duply, “NOT REAL NEWS: A look at what didn’t happen this week.” It’s “part of  the Associated Press ongoing effort to fact-check misinformation that is shared widely online.”

It’s so bad, it’s good.

The only really fake news story, and I mean giant fake news, is the Russia collusion hoax that these same outlets have been running with for well over two years.

No mea culpa.

Instead, they zero in on a Facebook post and a video which are both largely true.

Mind you, these are not news or website stories, but Facebook shares. This is the level of desperation the big left has had to resort to. The first Facebook comment the AP deems “not real news”:

 

“California Rep. Maxine Waters, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders have passed only six bills during their combined 67 years in office.”

The AP’s correction is actually worse.  Waters, Pelosi and Sanders have not 67 years between them but 80 years and have sponsored a scant 13 bills. 13 bills in 80 years. And the AP is crowing about this?

The other “not real news” is concerning a Facebook comment (a small page with roughly 5,000 likes) ] about the Islamic supremacist demo in NY. The AP deems this major reportage and claims:

a video circulating on social media that claims to show Muslims in New York rallying for Sharia law has been falsely captioned. The footage was taken during the March 24 “United Against Islamophobia” rally in Times Square.

“Islamophobia” is a thought crushing device designed to silence any criticism of Islamic terror and sharia oppression. Anyone who opposes sharia, i.e. advocates for free speech, is deemed islamophobic. So the post title is not wrong. And considering how the AP and the NYT editorialize their headlines when it comes to Israel, Trump, Republicans or anyone with whom they disagree they have a helluva lot of nerve.

But this is what the AP is reporting as news. First off, these are not even news stories, but folks sharing their opinions on Facebook. Secondly, we are talking about a few hundred shares. Nothing.  It’s like the thought police.

 

NOT REAL NEWS: A LOOK AT WHAT DIDN’T HAPPEN THIS WEEK

A roundup of some of the most popular but completely untrue stories and visuals of the week. None of these is legit, even though they were shared widely on social media. The Associated Press checked these out. Here are the real facts:

———

CLAIM: California Rep. Maxine Waters, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders have passed only six bills during their combined 67 years in office.

THE FACTS: The three Democratic members of Congress have together served more than 80 years and have sponsored a total of 13 bills that became law. The false claim about their combined years of service and number of bills passed is circulating on Facebook. According to Congress.Gov, the government’s official website for federal legislative information, Waters has sponsored three bills in her 28 years in office, all of which have passed, including the National Flood Insurance Program Extension Act of 2010. Sanders has sponsored three bills that have passed during his 28 years in office, including the Veterans Compensation Cost-of-Living Adjustment Act, which increased rates of compensation for disabled veterans. Pelosi, who was voted speaker of the house for the second time in January, has sponsored seven bills that have been enacted during her 32 years, including the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008, which was introduced to address the mortgage crisis, and the Economic Stimulus Act of 2008, which was passed to help boost the economy. In her time as House speaker, she has played a major role in passing numerous bills, including well-known laws like the Affordable Care Act.

CLAIM: Muslims in California are asking people to not decorate for Easter or Christmas this year out of respect.

THE FACTS: There have been no documented cases of any prominent Muslim leaders or Islamic organizations in California requesting that people not decorate for Easter or Christmas this year, as posts circulating social media suggest. The Council on American-Islamic Relations, the nation’s largest Islam and civil rights advocacy group, said the claim was baseless and conspiratorial in nature. “I’ve never in my life heard Muslims say you can’t decorate for Easter, Christmas or whatever,” Ibrahim Hooper, CAIR national communications director, told The Associated Press. “Muslims are not opposed to Christians celebrating Easter, they just don’t celebrate it themselves,” he said. Ishaq Pathan, deputy director of Islamic Networks Group, said his organization had not heard of any such reports. “I’m inclined to believe it’s a hoax,” he said. This claim was circulating widely days after a mosque in Escondido, California, was set on fire, and weeks after the attacks in New Zealand.

–AP Writer Joseph Gedeon in Phoenix reported this item.

CLAIM: Video footage said to show Muslims rallying in New York City demanding their “Sharia Rights.”

THE FACTS: A video circulating on social media that claims to show Muslims in New York rallying for Sharia law has been falsely captioned. The footage was taken during the March 24 “United Against Islamophobia” rally in Times Square. Muslim leaders and allies held the march to combat Islamophobia and show solidarity following the mosque attacks in New Zealand, where at least 50 people were killed on March 15. Hossam Gamea, outreach director for Majlis Ash-Shura: Islamic Leadership Council of New York, one of the organizers of the event, confirmed to The Associated Press that the footage showed the Sunday rally against Islamophobia.

CLAIM: Disney-Pixar to release “Boo,” a film spinoff from the animated “Monsters, Inc.” franchise, in July 2020.

THE FACTS: Disney is not releasing a sequel to the popular animated buddy movie “Monsters, Inc.” this summer, despite social media posts circulating what appears to be a movie poster for “Boo,” which is the name of the child featured in the 2001 movie. The poster, which shows a grown-up Boo with a teddy bear standing in a doorway, says “SHE KNOWS MONSTERS ARE REAL. JULY 2020. The same poster circulated widely in 2016. At that time, an Instagram user took credit for the poster saying it represented a concept for a movie. A Disney-Pixar spokeswoman, who declined to be identified by name, told The Associated Press in an email that Pixar is not releasing “Boo” in 2020 and has no such movie in the works. According to Associated Press reporting CEO Bob Iger said Disney is planning a “Monsters, Inc.” series for its upcoming streaming service.

Texas: Dept Writes 1 Citation Every Minute – Let Cop’s Son Who Murdered Man on Video Walk Free

Killeen, TX — The cops in Killeen, Texas are garnering some much-needed scrutiny this week after a report from a local news outlet found that they have been aggressively targeting drivers in a speed trap. Just last week, Killeen cops wrote a total of 95 traffic tickets in just an hour and a half. That is over one ticket a minute.

Police claim they were reacting to a complaint from a citizen about a speeder going through a school zone. Speeding through a school zone is a terrible and dangerous idea and those who recklessly endanger the lives of kids should certainly be held accountable.

However, these cops took revenue collection to new heights this month by setting up in Pershing Park Elementary School zone and stopping dozens of motorists, issuing all of them citations. According to police, 76 of those citations were for speeding.

“Our goal is to ensure the safety of our citizens and students as they walk and bike to and from school,” KPD wrote in a press release.

As stated above, it is dangerous to recklessly travel through areas where small children are walking around. However, a citation every minute in less than two hours is predatory and seemingly has very little to do with public safety.

If the Killeen police department was really worried about public safety and stopping criminals, they could start with the son of one of their own.

Disturbing video of a murder in Killeen, Texas was published in 2017 by the Free Thought Project of a man being murdered in broad daylight. We reported on this video to help seek justice for Curtis E. Shelley. However, as we reported earlier this month, while cops were writing a ticket every minute, we learned that the killer—who is the son of a Killeen police officer—will have no charges filed against him.

The Bell County Grand Jury met at the beginning of March and no charges were returned in the killing of Shelley. Naturally, the Shelley family was devastated and were quick to claim that the suspect got away with murder because he’s the son of a cop.

As KCEN reports, they said the aftermath of the shooting has torn the family apart and they do not have closure or feel like justice was served. They also said they’re upset that the person they believe shot Shelley has still not been named as the suspect.

Bell County District Attorney Henry Garza released the following statement after the no bill was returned:

On November 12, 2017, the Killeen Police Department began an investigation concerning the death of Curtis Shelly.  As a result of the subject of the investigation being related to an active officer with the Killeen Police Department, Police Chief Kimble requested the Texas Rangers to handle the investigation.

Toward the end of 2018 the investigation was completed by the Texas Rangers and due to other work that was scheduled before the grand jury the investigation could not be presented before their term expired.

Today, (Wednesday) The Bell County Grand Jury was presented the completed investigation of the Texas Rangers and after due deliberation by the Bell County Grand Jury they decided not to return an indictment in connection with the death of Curtis Shelly.

In any other case involving the shooting death of an unarmed person, rest assured that the public would be, at the very least, given the shooter’s name. However, this case was tainted from the start. Despite video showing the shooting of an unarmed man, no arrests and no charges were ever made and his name was never released.

As we reported at the time, an anonymous source told the Free Thought Project that the shooter in the video below is the son of a KPD officer. The victim’s grandmother confirmed this as well. And only after we reported it did the Texas Rangers announce this connection.

Police officials said the Texas Rangers were invited to assist in the investigation into the death of Curtis E. Shelley after the alleged shooter’s connection to a department employee was discovered.

The investigation determined that “the victim and suspect” were involved in an ongoing dispute, according to the Killeen Police Department. The shooter was reportedly Shelly’s neighbor.

According to Shelley’s family, Shelley was walking home when he got into an argument with his neighbor over Shelley’s family dog. The family claims Shelley’s neighbor stabbed their dog a few weeks earlier.

As the video shows, the two men were engaged in an obvious dispute with the shooter training the gun on Shelley the entire time. As the situation appears to calm down, Shelley walks backward and the shooter has the chance to leave the scene. However, the shooter chooses not to leave and with no warning and without Shelly lunging or otherwise posing any threat, the man fired the shotgun.

The single shot dropped Shelley immediately and he died shortly after.

At the time, legal experts noted that it would be difficult for the shooting to be justified. However, it was and now a family has to live with the fact that their neighbor—a son of a police officer—killed their beloved family member and no justice will be served.

As TFTP reported at the time, the shooter wasn’t even brought in for questioning for several days after he killed a man. He was allowed to leave the scene after police arrived and nothing ever came of it.

When watching the video below, ask yourself what possible reason would deter police from going to the shooter’s house and immediately arresting him. Then think about the video above in which cops were writing a ticket every single minute. As we can clearly see, Killeen police are clearly more interested in revenue collection than they are with going after a relative of one of their own who killed an unarmed man in broad daylight.

SPLC Employees Claim Organization Suffers From “Systemic Problems With Racism & Sexism”

Just a week after Southern Poverty Law Center President Richard Cohen resigned and two weeks after its co-founder Morris Dees was terminated, more employees are stepping forward and calling out the nonprofit group saying that the environment that they were in at SPLC was a culture of “systemic problems with racism and sexism.”

At least two dozen employees of SPLC signed a letter alleging “mistreatment, sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and racism” by the SPLC after Dees was fired.

Three current employees spoke to CNN.

CNN spoke with three current employees of the organization who talked on condition of anonymity because of fears over possible retribution.

It was one of those employees who cited the systemic problems with racism and sexism, and a second employee agreed with that assessment.

But one of the employees who spoke to CNN alleged the organization suffers from a “pervasive racist culture” and an environment in which a woman is not seen or heard. She also said qualified African-American employees were regularly passed over for promotions — including one African-American colleague she describes as brilliant. She added, “My boss only hires white people.”

I have to admit that while the situation is very serious and sad, it is interesting watching this hateful, bigoted organization eat itself.

Zero Hedge adds:

Conservative pundit Gavin McInnes has said that the SPLC wants everyone to believe that America is “frothing with bigots.” McInnes is suing the nonprofit for labeling his fraternal organization, the Proud Boys, a hate group

And as the Washington Examiner‘s Beckett Adams wrote last week, the Southern Poverty Law Center is a “scam,” which has taken “no care whatsoever for the reputational and personal harm it causes by lumping Christians and anti-extremist activists with actual neo-Nazis.”

As it turns out, the SPLC is a cynical money-making scheme, according to a former staffer’s blistering tell-all, published this week in the New Yorker. The center’s chief goal is to bilk naive and wealthy donors who believe it’s an earnest effort to combat bigotry.

The only thing worse than a snarling partisan activist is a slimy conman who merely pretends to be one. –Washington Examiner

““Outside of work,” recalls Bob Moser of his days working for the organization, “we spent a lot of time drinking and dishing in Montgomery bars and restaurants about … the hyperbolic fund-raising appeals, and the fact that, though the center claimed to be effective in fighting extremism, ‘hate’ always continued to be on the rise, more dangerous than ever, with each year’s report on hate groups. ‘The S.P.L.C.—making hate pay,’ we’d say.”

Of course, hiring the chief of staff of Michelle Obama, who was instrumental in fixing the Jussie Smollett “fake hate hoax” is probably not going to be a good public relations move for the SPLC in all of this, but not to worry, the media who has been using their lies for years, funded by George Soros, will no doubt continue to provide for this hateful, sexist, racist, bigoted criminal organization.

Pentagon Putting Your Tax Dollars To Work: Lobster, Crab, Alcohol, Golf Carts, Tubas & Trombones!

We’ve known for years the US government unconstitutionally spends money it doesn’t have and then puts the burden of that debt on the citizens.  And it’s continuing.  In the latest report this month, it was revealed that the Pentagon has been engaged in more wasteful spending of taxpayer dollars with purchases of lobster, crab, alcohol, golf carts, tubas, trombones and more.

In a report by Rick Sanchez breaks down the Pentagon’s wasteful spending.

Then constitutional attorney and president of the Rutherford Institute John Whitehead joins to weigh in on the colossal waste of tax money that the US “defense” budget represents and which puts the country ever deeper in debt.

None of this is about defense, and none of it is authorized in the US Constitution for Congress to fund nor the executive branch to spend on.

You’ll be astounded at what our government is spending our money on outside of the law, the US Constitution.

According to the report, $97 billion were spent on tubas and trombones, $1.7 million dollars on lobster and crab for many of the government contractors, $309,000 on alcohol and $567,000 on golf carts.

Let’s not even talk about the other unconstitutional spending that takes place in other agencies of the federal government.

President Trump promised an end to wasteful spending.  Why are things like this not being addressed?

Soros Bankrolled “Hate Crime” Database Used By Media With Claims By Debunked SPLC & Hamas-CAIR

The mainstream media is being exposed as the corporate, state-controlled puppets they are.  In a report this week, a massive “hate crime” database, which was used by more than 100 media outlets to report alleged hate crimes, was funded by none other than George Soros, according to tax documents and interviews.

Among those that contributed to the database are known liars such as the discredited SPLC and designated terror group Hamas-CAIR.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

ProPublica, an investigative reporting nonprofit based in New York City, launched the project, known as “Documenting Hate,” in 2017. The New York Times backed the project in January 2017 editorial, “Why We Need a Project to Document Hate Crimes.”

“Reliable data on hate crimes is hard to come by. As reports of racist, anti-Semitic and Islamophobic harassment and attacks poured in after the election of Donald Trump, many Americans wondered whether they represented a nationwide increase in hate crime,” the Times editorial board wrote. “While the Southern Poverty Law Center saw a dramatic increase in reports after the election, it’s not yet clear whether this indicates a nationwide trend.”

ABC News later ran a piece titled, “Help ABC News, ProPublica and other newsrooms across America track hate crimes across the US” that also cites the SPLC as to why it is needed. The announcement urges the public to share their stories if they have been a victim of a hate crime.

The Beacon then added that the project received substantial backing by Soros.

The project received hundreds of thousands of dollars in funding from George Soros’s Foundation to Promote Open Society, according to the group’s most recent tax forms.

On page 321 of the Foundation to Promote Open Society’s 2017 tax forms, a $200,000 contribution is shown to ProPublica “to create a well-reported data set of hate crimes and to produce high-quality investigative reporting on the subject” while another $375,000 donation was made to ProPublica “to support the hate crimes tracking project.” Soros gave $200,000 more to the group, which was split between “general support” and a separate initiative on online price discrimination.

Soros vowed to put $10 million into combating hate crimes following Trump’s election.

Additionally, the Free Beacon reported:

While “Documenting Hate” is not specifically mentioned by name on the tax forms, the Soros donations were, in fact, for the project, which made it possible for the initiative to launch and maintain itself, according to a phone interview with Richard Tofel, the president of ProPublica.

Tofel said that the $375,000 contribution was used for “Documenting Hate” in 2017, while the $200,000 donation was used for 2018 so the group could maintain and continue the project. Soros was the first funder of the project; his grants expired in December. Google is now the funder of the project, according to Tofel.

Of course, we know that the leadership of the SPLC have either been fired or are headed for the exit doors about scandals of their own, which is not surprising in the least.

Two weeks ago, the SPLC fired it’s co-founder Morris Dees over sexual harassment and racism.  On the heels of that revelation, SPLC President Richard Cohen also let it be made known that he was on the way out as well.

Immediately following that news, the SPLC just stepped right into another controversy by hiring the usurper Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah’s senior advisor who fixed Jussie Smollett’s “hate crime” hoax, Tina Tchen.  Isn’t it nice to know that an organization that often brands decent, moral and upstanding, law-abiding citizens and organization as hateful, not only has a history of promoting “fake hate,” but then brings someone in that has recent history is fixing a “fake hate crime”?  It’s scandalous, which should be the first word now in SPLC.

Not only did the Free Beacon report that many of the alleged “hate crimes” were hoaxes and often self-inflicted, like Smollett’s, but that they were promoted by the SPLC and CAIR through media outlets as though it were actual real news.  I guess NewsGuard is going to need to work a little harder to prop up the mainstream media by red badging those they disagree with.

WND adds:

The author of “Hate Crime Hoax,” Wilfred Reilly, found more than 400 hate crime hoaxes while conducting research for his book.

Reilly, an assistant professor of political science at Kentucky State University, wrote in USA Today that the Jussie Smollett hoax is one of many widely reported instances.

He said “these cases are not isolated outliers.”

The website Fake Hate Crimes, citing news sources, has a running list of 353 hate-crime hoaxes.

Watch The Prayer That Made Democrats & Muslims Lose Their Minds (Video)

Islamic totalitarianism reared its ugly head this past week as an opening prayer of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives cause Democrats and Muslims, particularly the first Muslim woman to be sworn in to be offended and act completely inappropriately.

Rep. Movita Johnson-Harrell, D-Philadelphia, the first Muslim woman member of the House was to be sworn in on the same day the prayer occurred.

Of course, freshman Rep. Stephanie Borowicz, R-Clinton County, offered the opening prayer that day.  Here it is.

There is nothing controversial about the prayer for any red-blooded American.  It is documented history that America is a Christian nation, though she has departed from her God.

One simple look to the first governing document establishing the people here was the Mayflower Compact and it was just as explicit as Ms. Borowicz’s prayer.

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.

Notice, it was the advancement of the Christian Faith, whose head and king is Jesus the Christ.  We were not established as a Muslim nation, but a Christian one.  The only people who are offended by a prayer mentioning Jesus are antichrists, and that’s the only people who were offended.

“Jesus, you are our only hope,” Borowicz said, before going on to pray for the House Republican leaders, Gov. Tom Wolf, and President Trump.

She invoked the name of Jesus some 13 times during the prayer, exalting Him as “the King of Kings; the Lord of lords; the great I Am; the One who’s coming back again; the One who came, died and rose again on the third day.”

She also prayed for forgiveness for the nation’s sins and ended her prayer declaring, “At the name of Jesus, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess Jesus, that you are Lord.”

Of course, she took a position about modern-day Israel, which is unbiblical.  Nevertheless, her prayer caused quite a controversy, something that would never have been a controversy just 20 years ago.

Johnson-Harrell, as well as other Democrats, denounced the prayer.

“I knew I was going to receive some discrimination because of my religion,” Johnson-Harrell said, according to WHYY radio in Philadelphia. “Because I’m a hijabi woman. And I am the first … but I did not think it would come on the actual day of my swearing-in.”

Johnson-Harrell said the prayer was “highly offensive to me, my guests, and other members of the House.”

“It blatantly represented the Islamophobia that exists among some leaders — leaders that are supposed to represent the people,” Johnson-Harrell said in a statement. “I came to the Capitol to help build bipartisanship and collaborations regardless of race or religion to enhance the quality of life for everyone in the Commonwealth.”

Democratic House Minority Whip Jordan Harris claimed that the prayer was weaponized to “intimidate, demean and degrade.”

No, ma’am, that’s what Islam and totalitarians do and her comments are evidence of that.

“Let me be clear,” Harris said in a statement.  “I am a Christian. I spend my Sunday mornings in church worshiping and being thankful for all that I have.  But in no way does that mean I would flaunt my religion at those who worship differently than I do. There is no room in our Capitol building for actions such as this, and it’s incredibly disappointing that today’s opening prayer was so divisive.”

There’s her problem.  She leaves her “religion” at the door of the church.  She doesn’t actually practice any of it and you watch, this professed Christian, given enough time, will convert to antichrist Islam.  She’s already openly denying Christ by blasting the prayer mentioning His name.

Additionally, WND reported:

The Daily Caller noted an Islamic prayer called Takbir was recited before the legislature during Johnson-Harrell’s swearing-in.

The Islamic prayer ended, however, before its last line, which denounces the central Christian doctrine that Jesus is the Son of God.

House Minority Leader Frank Dermody condemned Borowicz’s prayer, PennLive.com reported.

“It was not meant to bring us together. It was not meant to inspire us. It was beneath the dignity of the House,” he said to the applause of members.

But the state’s legislature applauded Muslim Democratic Pennsylvania State Rep. Jason Dawkins’ invocation Tuesday in which he recited from the Quran.

The reality is that if the Church would repent and start getting its doctrine and practice right, it would once again influence the politics of our land properly.  Until God grants such repentance, we can expect to see the enemies of Christ and His Church rise to power to be used in judgment by God against His people (Deuteronomy 28).

Is Modern Technology Hazardous to Health?

Technology has impacted our lives in many positive and negative ways, computers, mobile phones with 5G present and future robotic and automotive applications, smart meters, solar panels, wind turbines, and geoengineering, just to name a few. But are they good for our health?

As the 5G rollout is happening around the world, concerned groups are organizing to mount an opposition and voice their concern about its safety to humans and animals bathed constantly in EMF radiation from towers that will eventually be deployed on every street corner.

A recent article reported that four students and three teachers in a California school in San Joaquin County were stricken with cancer which was caused entirely by environmental factors. Parents were demanding that a “radiation-emitting cell phone tower be removed from elementary school property.”

As reported by DrJockers.com, documented 5G health effects include “worsened eye health, lowered bacterial resistance, impacted skin health, and more biologically-active organs – more dangerous.”

Dr. Klaus Kaiser wrote that “there is a one-plus order of magnitude difference in the photon (electromagnetic wave, EM) energy between the current 4G communication (4G) and the proposed 5G systems (5G).”

He continues that “The more powerful EM wave energy (30-80 GHz of the 5G vs. 3-6 GHz of the 4G) requires a novel set of long-term assessment testing on a variety of species that could be affected by it, even if it were eventually proven to be of no concern in any testing.” In the absence of such a testing, the hurried 5G rollout is a global experiment on humans as unwilling laboratory rats who want faster internet connectivity, smart appliances, future robotic applications not yet thought of, and self-driven cars, all controlled from towers on every block, like steel trees everywhere.

Dr. Kaiser recommends studying any health effects of 5G technology on the animal population of a zoo with its biological universe at the ready – animals live, breed, and die in a relatively secure and enclosed experimental area. His proposal for 5G testing is detailed here.

A recent study, “Microwave frequency electromagnetic fields (EMFs) produce widespread neuropsychiatric effects including depression,” was published in the Journal of Chemical Neuroanatomy. The abstract said, “Among the more commonly reported changes are sleep disturbance/insomnia, headache, depression/depressive symptoms, fatigue/tiredness, dysesthesia, concentration/attention dysfunction, memory changes, dizziness, irritability, loss of appetite/body weight, restlessness/anxiety, nausea, skin burning/tingling/dermographism and EEG changes. … All collectively show that various non-thermal microwave EMF exposures produce diverse neuropsychiatric effects.”

Josh Del Sol pointed out that the 5G seen in Wi-Fi routers means “5 GHz.” But the 5G they are talking about is the “5th Generation” infrastructure. “Actual 5G (5th Generation) is planned to operate at 25-90+ GHz frequencies, use beam-forming/targeting systems, and be integrated with thousands of satellites to blanket the earth.”

In the video below, U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal asked wireless industry reps questions about the safety of 5G technology and whether the industry that is pushing this 5G technology knows of or has sponsored any research studies as to the health effects on humans and animals and the answers were that the industry has done no health and safety studies on 5G technology. Independent studies do show “a risk to all biological life.”

Stephen McBride stated in a recent mailout that “China and the U.S. are neck in neck in the race to develop their 5G networks. In fact, so far China has outspent the U.S. by $25 billion in 5G, according to ‘Big 4’ accounting firm Deloitte.”

He believes that, even though “the Trump White House recently labeled 5G a national security priority for America,” the government’s “red tape is choking America’s 5G rollout.” He continues that America needs hundreds of thousands of new cell towers. These are “tiny compared to the 100+ foot cell towers you’re used to seeing.” They are the size of a trash can and carry signal only about half a mile. This means that “instead of placing one giant cell tower every few miles, we’ll need to place small ones every couple thousand feet.”

According to McBride, there are 220,000 cell towers in the U.S. today. In his estimation, AT&T alone will need 300,000 new 5G cell towers, a big project. The new towers are not just an improvement over 4G but a “huge leap.”

In their rush to deployment, the industry spent zero money to study the effects of the 5G towers on health.

Another health issue for humans and animals documented by many independent studies points to smart meters. Smart meters have been installed in most places for the convenience of utility companies and to the detriment of the population at large, who are experiencing various health problems, are paying higher electricity rates per kWh, are spied upon 24/7 without a warrant, their consumption patterns and activities sold to third parties, and are hit with radiation every so many seconds coming from the Mother Ship far away, measuring and controlling customers’ consumption by off switches during high peak demand. Why would the utility store extra electricity for high demand times when they can cut your electricity off and “save” you money while you swelter in your home for hours each day and your food and medicine spoil in the fridge?

Geoengineering is supposedly protecting humanity from the effects of global warming. It engages in aerial spraying and injection of the stratosphere with harmful chemicals in order, as we were told by former CIA chief, John Brennan, to mitigate the disastrous effects of global warming. The particles sprayed in the atmosphere are eventually inhaled by all of us as they fall to the ground and mix in the soil that grows our crops and in our waters from which we drink.

Despite complaints from farmers, environmentalists, and sick humans who experience heightened allergies and other medical problems, the geoengineering continues. The trails in the sky do not dissipate for hours and eventually turn into a milky grey cover that blocks the sun for hours or days. Water vapor trails from airplanes usually dissipate in minutes.

Solar panels installed in large fields are a health hazard to fauna, especially birds. Solar panels on homes reduce electrical consumption and eventually, after a high initial installation cost, begin to pay off in lower usage of electricity generated by fossil fuels. But, in the absence of sun, electricity produced by fossil fuels is necessary.

Fields of solar panels that produce more electricity require huge land area deployment that takes fertile soil away from agriculture and the production of food. Solar panels create heat fluxes, frying in flight any bird that is unlucky enough to fly in its proximity or is attracted to the solar panels that look curiously like shimmering rivers and lakes to them.

Wind turbines seemed like a good idea until the huge blades started chopping up millions of birds around the word. The constant thump-thump sounds interrupted the sleep pattern of humans and animals alike. Animals started exhibiting strange behaviors, attacking their young, and birthing dead litters. Humans living in the proximity of wind turbines complained of many strange health issues, such as insomnia, skin problems, hormonal issues, birth defects, and psychological problems.

And the production of electricity is sketchy at best since turbines produce electricity when winds exceed speeds of 32 MPH. Just because a blade is spinning, it does not necessarily mean that it produces electricity. According to the experts, the quantity of fossil fuels and other materials used to manufacture and maintain a wind turbine makes it almost impossible to break even in the life span of an electricity producing wind turbine. Some wind turbines in smaller European countries were installed in a hurry because the funds were available from the EU, but the turbines themselves were not connected to any electricity storage facility.

As I ponder the impact of technology on health, I cannot forget how at one time tobacco smoking was touted as a health benefit by those who profited from it.

Midwest Apocalypse: According To Satellite Data, “At Least 1 Million Acres Of U.S. Farmland” Have Been Devastated By Floods

We have never seen anything like this before.  According to satellite data that was just released by Reuters, “at least 1 million acres of U.S. farmland” were covered by water for at least seven days this month.  That is an agricultural disaster without equal in modern American history, and yet the mainstream media is treating this like it is some sort of second class story.  It isn’t.  This is the biggest news story of 2019 so far, and people want to know what is going on.  A few days ago, I posted a story entitled ‘“As Many As A Million Calves Lost In Nebraska” – Beef Prices In The U.S. To Escalate Dramatically In The Coming Months’, and it has already been shared on social media more than 145,000 times.  Farming communities all over the central part of the nation now look like war zones as a result of all this flooding, but the media elites on the east and west coasts don’t want to write about it.  And with more flooding on the way for the next two months, this crisis is only going to get worse.

This is the time of year when farmers are gearing up to plant wheat, corn and soybeans, and now a substantial portion of our farmland will not be able to be used at all this year.  According to Reuters, at least a million acres of farmland were covered by floodwaters for at least seven days this month, and that “will likely reduce corn, wheat and soy production this year”…

At least 1 million acres (405,000 hectares) of U.S. farmland were flooded after the “bomb cyclone” storm left wide swaths of nine major grain producing states under water this month, satellite data analyzed by Gro Intelligence for Reuters showed.

Farms from the Dakotas to Missouri and beyond have been under water for a week or more, possibly impeding planting and damaging soil. The floods, which came just weeks before planting season starts in the Midwest, will likely reduce corn, wheat and soy production this year.

And with “as many as a million calves” lost to the flooding, a lot less food than anticipated is going to be produced in the United States for the foreseeable future.

Between March 8th and March 21st, almost 1.1 million acres of cropland and over 84,000 acres of pastureland were covered by water for at least a week.  With more rain on the way, it is essentially going to be impossible for most of those acres to be usable this year.

In Iowa, 474,271 acres were covered by floodwaters for at least seven days in March, and Iowa farmers are facing some very tough deadlines.  Corn must be planted by May 31st and soybeans must be planted by June 15th in order to qualify for flood insurance.  For most Iowa farms that were covered by floodwaters, that is going to be impossible.

Overall, the recent flooding caused “at least $3 billion” in economic damage according to authorities, but many believe that the final number will be far higher.

Thousands upon thousands of farms have been completely destroyed, and thousands upon thousands of farmers will not plant any crops at all this year.

In addition to the vast agricultural devastation that we have witnessed, thousands upon thousands of homes have been destroyed as well, and now the National Ground Water Association is warning that “the safety of more than a million private water wells” could be compromised…

Record flooding in the Midwest is now threatening the safety of more than a million private water wells. The National Ground Water Association estimates that people living in more than 300 counties across 10 states have their groundwater threatened from bacterial and industrial contamination carried by flood waters.

If you live in the middle of the country and there is a chance that your well may have been compromised, please don’t take any unnecessary chances.  Contaminated water can be really, really bad news.

Unfortunately, this is just the beginning.  According to the NOAA, we are entering an “unprecedented flood season” that could potentially “impact an even bigger area of cropland”

Spring floods could yet impact an even bigger area of cropland. The U.S. government’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has warned of what could be an “unprecedented flood season” as it forecasts heavy spring rains. Rivers may swell further as a deep snow pack in northern growing areas melts.

In my previous article entitled ‘”200 Million People At Risk: National Weather Service Warns Apocalyptic Midwest Floods Are “A Preview Of What We Expect Throughout The Rest Of The Spring”’, I included a map from the NOAA which shows which areas of the central part of the country are projected to receive unusually high levels of rainfall over the next few months.

Unfortunately, there is a tremendous amount of overlap with areas that have already been devastated by flooding.

On Friday and Saturday, there will be “more heavy rains” in the Midwest, and Nebraska is in “the direct path” of the center of the storm…

From the Central Plains to the Midwest, it has been a disastrous spring for river flooding. A weather system slated to bring more heavy rains Friday into Saturday could aggravate the situation along and near the Missouri and Mississippi rivers.

It’s a one-two punch that combines additional rainwater with fresh runoff from snowmelt. Perhaps worst off is Nebraska, in the direct path of Friday’s quick burst of moisture. Barely a week has passed since Gov. Pete Ricketts estimated the cost of ongoing flooding in that state at more than $1 billion.

This is it.  America is being hammered by one storm after another, and I very much encourage you to get prepared for a very rough ride ahead.

There is going to be a lot more flooding.  Prices for beef, dairy, wheat, corn and soy products are going to rise significantly, and just when you think they are way too high they are going to keep on rising.

This is already the worst agricultural disaster in modern American history, and federal authorities are telling us that we should expect things to continue to get worse for at least two more months.

Perhaps the mainstream media will eventually decide to take this story seriously, but until they do those of us in the alternative media will do our best to keep you updated.

Democrat Senator Tim Kaine Introduces Bill To Combat “Undeniable Threat” Of White Supremacy, Ignores Jihad

Another Democrat trying to diminish the glaring Islamic anti-semitism in his own party and also detract from the seriousness and dangers of the highly threatening and vast global jihad.

Tim Kaine asserts that “the rise of white supremacy is an undeniable threat to the safety of our communities,” and “as the threat of violent white supremacy continues to mount, we must do more to ensure law enforcement has the training and resources they need to detect, deter, and investigate these acts of terrorism.”

Kaine is advocating for taxpayer money to go toward a hunt for “white supremacists,” and he uses one incident from 2017 to back up his claims.

Meanwhile, Kaine ignores news such as the story of the five New Mexico Muslims who were recently indicted on terrorism-related offences for allegedly training children “to carry out school massacres.”

The children were living under abusive conditions; the leader of the group is Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, the son of imam Siraj Wahhaj, a former board member of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

Siraj Wahhaj once urged the overthrow of the “filthy” U.S. government.

This same man gave an opening prayer at an event at the Democratic National Convention in 2012.

Britain’s Security Service (MI5) has already debunked the “white supremacist” or “far right” threat: it declared that “the number of far-right terror cases the authorities are faced with is ‘absolutely dwarfed’ by the number of cases related to radical Islam.”

That no doubt holds true in the U.S. as well.

“Kaine introduces domestic terrorism bill,” by Nick Shepherd, Bristol Herald Courier, March 28, 2019:

WASHINGTON D.C. — U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., has introduced a bill that would combat the threat of domestic terrorism.

Kaine and U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, introduced the legislation on Wednesday. It specifically addresses the growing threat of white supremacists and other violent right-win extremists, according to a news release. The bill is called the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act.

“The rise of white supremacy is an undeniable threat to the safety of our communities,” Kaine said. “In 2017, violent white supremacists brought their hate to Virginia when they marched through the streets of Charlottesville. As the threat of violent white supremacy continues to mount, we must do more to ensure law enforcement has the training and resources they need to detect, deter, and investigate these acts of terrorism.”

The bill would require the Justice Department, Department of Homeland Security and the FBI to regularly assess the threat posed by domestic terrorism and provide training and resources to assist state, local and tribal law enforcement to address it…..

Ben Rhodes Blames Jewish Donors For Obama Not Being More Anti-Israel

Rhodes sounds just like the anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar: “It’s all about the Benjamins, baby.” But in Obama’s case, it really was. Obama was a Jew-hater from the very start, and surrounded himself with venomous anti-Semites throughout his political career, as I meticulously documented in my book The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America. Now, Rhodes is revealing that Obama moderated his own Jew-hatred in order to fool Jewicidal leftists into pouring money into his coffers.

Nevertheless, while he was President, he did more to damage our alliance with the only democracy in the Middle East than any other President ever did.

And the money from the Jewicidals kept flowing in.

“Ben Rhodes Blames Jewish Donors for Obama Not Being More Anti-Israel,” by Joel B. Pollak, Breitbart, March 29, 2019 (thanks to Todd):

Ben Rhodes, a former national security aide to President Barack Obama, told the New York Times this week that the “donor class” had prevented Obama from taking more anti-Israel steps than the administration had wanted to take.

Rhodes spoke to author Nathan Thrall for a feature article titled, “How the Battle Over Israel and Anti-Semitism Is Fracturing American Politics.” The headline describes “politics,” but Thrall focused on policy debates within the Democratic Party, which has seen the rise of an assertive anti-Israel constituency in recent years. That constituency has included overtly and unabashedly antisemitic critics, largely but not exclusively from the Muslim community.

Thrall writes about the “boycott, divestment, sanctions” (BDS) movement, which seeks to isolate Israel as apartheid South Africa was once isolated — a comparison that BDS critics find not only factually wrong, but also offensive.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), whose recent antisemitic remarks sparked turmoil within the House Democratic caucus, supports BDS (though Omar suggested otherwise to voters in her Minnesota’ district during the 2018 election).

One of Omar’s most notorious remarks was, “It’s all about the Benjamins,” followed by a claim that the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) bribes members of Congress to support Israel. (AIPAC does not endorse or donate to candidates.) Thrall notes that Jewish donors do figure disproportionately among the Democratic Party’s largest donors — though he allows that few of them “prioritize pro-Israel policies above all other issues.”

Enter Rhodes — one of the architects of the Iran nuclear deal, which was vehemently opposed by Israel and by pro-Israel Americans. He blamed Jewish donors for the Obama administration’s supposed restraint towards Israel:

According to Ben Rhodes, a former deputy national-security adviser and one of Obama’s closest confidants, several members of the Obama administration wanted to adopt a more assertive policy toward Israel but felt that their hands were tied. “The Washington view of Israel-Palestine is still shaped by the donor class,” Rhodes, who does not support B.D.S., told me, when I met with him at the Obama Foundation in October. “The donor class is profoundly to the right of where the activists are, and frankly, where the majority of the Jewish community is.”

Rhodes’s claims were echoed by “[a]nother former member of the Obama White House,” who told Thrall that the Obama administration had prevailed upon the United Nations Security Council to delay a vote against Israeli settlements in Judea and Samaria (the West Bank) to after the 2016 election. (The resolution also declared Israel’s presence in eastern Jerusalem — including the Jewish Quarter of the Old City, inhabited by Jews for millennia — to be illegal.)

But these claims are contradicted by the fact that after the Obama administration abstained, allowing such an anti-Israel resolution to pass for the first time, Jewish donors (and voters) hardly bolted from the Democratic Party….

Bernie Sanders Doubles Down On Wanting To Eliminate Private Health Insurance

Nobody likes health insurance companies. They’re the worst. Except for government health care. That’s even worse.

Now the bread line candidate is doubling down on his call to kill health care in America and replace it with Cuban medicine.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who is seeking the Democratic nomination for president in 2020, late Tuesday reiterated his call for the elimination of private health insurance companies and moving to a single-payer, “Medicare for all” system of health care.

“You’re damn right,” Sanders wrote in a tweet in response to a Republican National Committee Research tweet pointing out that he called for eliminating private health insurance during an interview earlier in the day.

In that MSNBC interview, Sanders  said the “current system is incredibly dysfunctional and wasteful” and said universal health care can’t be achieved “unless you get rid of the insurance companies.”

It’s incredibly dysfunctional and wasteful. Because it’s a hybrid private-public system.

Much of it is dysfunctional because of insane government regulations that are driving doctors out of the industry and forcing huge mergers, creating massive beasts that serve as an argument for government health care.

It’s Obama’s Cloward-Pivenization of health care. With the eager cooperation of the big corps that saw short term profits without caring about long term consequences, and assumed that the government would be in business with them in some way, shape or form.

They didn’t foresee an old-line Trotskyist like Bernie getting the nom.

And Bernie would like to replace it with Soviet medicine and breadlines for pills.

“You are not going to be able, in the long run, to have cost-effective, universal health care unless you change the system, unless you get rid of the insurance companies, unless you stand up to the greed of the drug companies and lower prescription drug costs,” he said during an appearance on MSNBC’s “All In With Chris Hayes.”

“That’s the only way that you can provide quality care to all people.”

Unless you eliminate any alternatives.

And then “quality care” will be defined by government metrics. If 33% survive, it’s quality.

Sanders has previously called for the elimination of private health insurance companies.

“Yes, it does, because you’re not going to a have a need for private insurance,” he said earlier this month during an interview with NPR when asked if private insurance “goes away” under Medicare for All.

You might have a need. But Bernie has decided that you don’t. That’s how the Left works.

It decides what you need. And then tells you to comply.

‘You Have No Jurisdiction Over Me’: US Citizen Owns ICE Officers Flaunting Order As A Warrant, Shuts Down Arrest By Knowing the Law

Editor’s Note:  No matter what side of the debate you are on in the immigration issue, this should be thought-provoking for you.  I don’t even know a politicial affiliation for the young man in the video, but he points out something I’ve seen and heard for over a decade from local to federal level government, and that is the difference between administrative and judicial.  Instead of following the Constitution whether it is an incident like the one in this article or being checked by TSA every time you board a plane, there is no constitutional authority for it.  In fact, I’ve been told by a TSA agent they can circumvent the Fourth Amendment because it’s “administrative,” in the same manner that local Child Protective Services do the same thing to parents by not charging them judicially, but administratively.  People better learn the difference and support the law, not a political party and certainly not “administrative” nonsense like that below.

Albany, NY — Bryan MacCormack is the executive director of the Columbia County Sanctuary Movement which has led him on a journey of learning immigration law. This journey came to a head earlier this month when MacCormack was filmed thwarting an Immigration and Customs Enforcement officer’s attempt to circumvent the constitution and make an arrest.

On March 5, while MacCormack was helping two immigrants with their legal cases, an ICE officer approached him and tried to arrest his clients. However, the officer would quickly realize the power a citizen has when they know the law.

As the video begins, MacCormack is debating the law with the ICE officer in Hudson, New York outside of the courtroom in which MacCormack had been helping the two immigrants.

The officer tries to say he has a “lawful warrant” to arrest the two individuals in MacCormack’s vehicle. The officer asks MacCormack if he’s familiar with the part of the immigration law that makes it illegal to harbor and transport “illegal aliens” and likely wasn’t expecting the response he received.

MacCormack proceeded to school the officer in constitutional law and noted that the “warrant” the officer had was “administrative” and not signed by a judge—meaning it was not constitutionally legal to enforce.

Although the video ends before they get there, local police were called to the scene and the ICE officer then leaves—without making an arrest.

As USA Today reported:

Chief Edward Moore told the Times Union in Albany he sent two cars after an ICE agent reported he was meeting resistance from MacCormack and his passengers.

MacCormack’s attorney then showed up and ICE ultimately left, an agency spokesperson told the paper.

MacCormack contended local police shouldn’t have even got involved because the ICE officer didn’t have a judicial warrant, and Hudson has declared itself a sanctuary city, which means it won’t enforce certain federal immigration laws.

But Moore told Columbia-Greene Media that he was contacted after the stop and not told the reason for the warrants.

The warrants for the two individuals were allegedly over immigration violations according to a statement from ICE. However, according to MacCormack, the warrants are not enforceable and the ICE officers leaving seemingly proved him right.

“I hope it spreads the word about know your rights and exemplifies the behavior that an individual can have when they are being confronted by ICE,” he said Wednesday.

Local Immigrant Rights Advocate Stops ICE Agents From Illegally Arresting 2 Undocumented People

‘I have no obligation to oblige by that warrant.’ — This citizen stopped ICE from arresting 2 undocumented immigrants because he knew his rights

Posted by NowThis Politics on Tuesday, March 26, 2019

The immigration debate in this country is a heated one and unfortunately, MacCormick’s rights-flexing video is not enough to calm it down. Every time a video or image surfaces of a child being abused in a detention facility, both parties get up in arms and attempt to blame each other—all the while ignoring the real reason for the crisis in the first place.

While pundits on the left may want to paint the abuse of immigrants in a political light to implicate the Trump Administration, it is important to note the practice of housing children and teens began long before Trump ever took office. However, the Trump Administration has done nothing to curb the abuse and although it is out of the spotlight now, it is likely still a horror faced by hundreds of children.

The reality of the situation is that the recent spike in immigrants coming into the United States from the Southern border are fleeing the inevitable results of the bipartisan policy carried out by multiple federal agencies on a global scale. The overwhelming majority of migrants coming from countries like El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala are fleeing violence created by the US federal government’s own war on drugs.

But how does American policy create violence in Honduras, you ask? The answer is simple, supply and demand.

Because making something illegal does nothing to curb the demand for it, the war on drugs acts as fuel to the fire of gang violence and crime in these South and Central American countries by creating an incentive for criminals to capitalize on the constant demand.

Gangs and cartels form to meet this constant demand because they are the only ones willing to break the law to fill it. The void in demand created by the war on drugs is filled with society’s worst who have no qualms about murdering innocents to protect their supply chain and keep the blood money and illegal drugs flowing.

Because the United States has no legal supply of these drugs, cartels willing to break the law bribe politicians in their own country to grow them and then smuggle their products into ours. As a result, the US is actively incentivizing crime thus fueling a refugee crisis.

To show just how closely related gang violence and the drug war are, we can look at the effects that legalization of marijuana in only a few states has had on gang violence and trafficking throughout the US and Mexico.

A study earlier this year showed that marijuana legalization led to a drastic drop in violent crime in US states that border Mexico.

According to the study, Is Legal Pot Crippling Mexican Drug Trafficking Organizations? The Effect of Medical Marijuana Laws on US Crime, when a state on the Mexican border legalized weed, violent crime fell by 13% on average. According to the study, homicides specifically related to the drug trade fell by an astonishing 41%.

Just seven cartels control the illegal marijuana trade into the US and even with legalization, they still supply a large portion of the weed consumed in America.

But legalizing pot and allowing it to be grown inside the United States is crippling the cartels and putting them out of business, according to the study.

“These laws allow local farmers to grow marijuana that can then be sold to dispensaries where it is sold legally,” said economist Evelina Gavrilova, one of the study’s authors. “These growers are in direct competition with Mexican drug cartels that are smuggling the marijuana into the US. As a result, the cartels get much less business.”

Because there is less business for cartels, drug-related violence plummets.

“The cartels are in competition with one another,” Gavrilova explained. “They compete for territory, but it’s also easy to steal product from the other cartels and sell it themselves, so they fight for the product. They also have to defend their territory and ensure there are no bystanders, no witnesses to the activities of the cartel.

“Whenever there is a medical marijuana law we observe that crime at the border decreases because suddenly there is a lot less smuggling and a lot less violence associated with that.”

Currently, marijuana is only recreationally legal in just 9 states, yet the effect of this legalization is felt across the country. Imagine what will happen to the cartels when the other 80 percent of the country stops kidnapping and caging people for this plant.

But marijuana is only the beginning. Other similar studies show that countries like Portugal, who decriminalized all drugs in 2001, have seen drug usage rates sharply decline as well as violent crime.

To curb violence in countries south of the border—thereby stifling the massive influx of refugees and solving a major problem—the United States should end the war on drugs—all of them.

Christchurch Shooting Being Used To Silence Free Speech & Questioning Of The False Flag Event Globally

Since the shooting that took place in Christchurch, New Zeland at a mosque two weeks ago, there has been a global attack on free speech and the press as I’ve never seen before.  New Zealand has arrested people for simply possessing the video of the shooting and threatening them with over a decade in jail.  Australia has threatened American companies who provide internet infrastructure to paying customers who post the video.  Things are way out of control, and this is happening not just in New Zealand, Australia and the US, but globally.

In a short presentation of just how dangerous this is and the rise of Islam in New Zealand, a short video produced by Infowars lays out exactly what is taking place and people better wake up and pay attention.

I’ve seen the video.  I know what’s in it.  Some things appear to be authentic, but there are several anomalies also in the video.  Some of those are referenced in the video along with the absolute tyranny that is taking place not only in New Zealand but practically in every civilized nation in the world.

Take a look for yourself and see what you think.

Colorado Senate Votes To Pass Unconstitutional Red Flag Bill – Sheriff Vows Not To Comply

Colorado, the state that couldn’t determine whether a woman committed murder when she cut an unborn baby from the abdomen of a pregnant woman due to their pretended abortion “laws,” has now seen their Senate pass a red flag bill, which would authorize law enforcement to  take people’s guns if a court rules them to be a risk to themselves or others, something that violates the Second, Fourth and Fifth Amendments of the US Constitution.

On Thursday, the Senate voted 18-17 in favor of the legislation, House Bill 1177.  No Republican supported the bill and even Senate President Leory Garcia, a Democrat, voted no against the bill.

“I want to continue working with my colleagues to find a Colorado solution,” Garcia said earlier this week in a written statement.

The unlawful bill is expected to be signed by Governor Jared Polis.

The Colorado Sun reported, “The Senate, where Democrats hold a slim 19-16 majority, was where the bill faced its only real challenge.”

That hurdle has now been crossed.

However, there are some constitutional sheriffs who have said that they will not comply with the unconstitutional bill if it is signed by the governor.

“If you pass an unconstitutional law, our oaths as commissioners or myself as the sheriff — we’re going to follow our constitutional oath first,” said Sheriff Steve Reams.

Other sheriffs would rather mental health facilities be funded properly, which I question whether that is the role of government or not.

“It’s time we quit trying to put lipstick on a pig and start funding our mental health facilities, instead of trying to take the rights from our people,” said another sheriff.

The state’s attorney general, Democrat Phil Weiser, said that these men should leave office if they can’t follow a “law” that is unconstitutional.

“If a sheriff cannot follow the law, the sheriff cannot do his or her job,” Weiser said. “The right thing to do for a sheriff who says, ‘I can’t follow the law’ is to resign.”

Yet, Governor Polis is not exactly cozying up to Weiser’s comments.  Instead, he is leaving it up to the discretion of the police.

“Every law enforcement agency has limited resources, and they do have to prioritize what they choose to enforce or not enforce,” said Polis.

That’s a coward’s way out.

What the governor should do is state that the Constitution does not allow any state to engage in authoring red flag laws because they are an attack on the rights of the people.  He won’t do that because he’s playing politics…. with your rights.

I hope these sheriffs come through for their people and don’t kowtow to the pressure of the beast.  Let’s pray God gives them courage.

Muslim Rep. Rashida Tlaib Submits Impeachment Resolution With Support Of One Other Democrat

Muslim and alleged fraudulent representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) formally submitted her impeachment resolution on Wednesday with the support of just one other representative, a Democrat who is also Muslim, Al Green (TX).

Green has also tried to advance impeachment of President Donald Trump before and utterly failed.  Tlaib will probably do the same.

CNN reports:

“Just Al Green and I,” Tlaib said, adding that she does not think there will be any others who come forward with their support.
Tlaib has been working behind-the-scenes to get colleagues to put their name on the resolution that directs the House Judiciary Committee to inquire whether President Donald Trump committed impeachable offenses.

Earlier this week she sent a “Dear Colleague” letter to a targeted list of members who in the past had shown an openness to pushing for impeachment and that she thought could be open to signing their name to her resolution.

Asked if she is disappointed that others didn’t sign on, especially those in her freshman class who may have called for impeachment on the campaign trail, she said no.

In a last-minute news conference outside the Capitol, Tlaib brushed aside concerns that she failed to get more than one other Democrat to sign on to her resolution.

“For many of my colleagues, not one told me not to,” she said, explaining she wasn’t discouraged from pursuing her resolution. “And that’s important to know. Not one single person told me not to do this — and I think that speaks volumes, more than whether or not they signed on.”

The text of her letter to colleagues read in part:

We all swore to protect our nation, and that begins with making sure that no one, including the President of the United States, is acting above the law. I urge your support in recommending that the House Committee on Judiciary begin hearings, take depositions, and issue subpoenas to answer this question that is fundamental to the rule of law and the preservation of our democracy.

Clearly, she is suffering from a delusion, just like Adam Schiff.

“For many of my colleagues, not one told me not to,” she said, explaining she wasn’t discouraged from pursuing her resolution. “And that’s important to know. Not one single person told me not to do this — and I think that speaks volumes, more than whether or not they signed on.”

Yeah, it speaks volumes that they are going to let you hang yourself with your own rope.

Even House leadership isn’t considering her plans, which seems questionable at face value, sort of like her legitimacy to be in Congress.

“You can ask her how she’s doing on her resolution,” Pelosi told CNN earlier Wednesday. “That is not an initiative of our House caucus.”

“I’ve made it really clear on impeachment,” Pelosi added. “Everybody can do whatever they want to do but that’s not a place where we are right now. Right now, we are talking about health care, we are talking about climate and building the infrastructure of America in a green way. Just like we promised in the campaign. That is what we are spending our time on.”

Tlaib used vulgarity in a speech back in January in which she stated she was going to “impeach the m***erf**ker,” referring to President Trump.

Shortly after, there were nearly 300,000 people who signed a petition to have her removed from office for fraud, claiming that Tlaib lied about living in the district she ran to represent.

Clearly, this resolution is dead.  It’s a way to make Tlaib feel like she is special and doing something when she’s really doing nothing.

When are we going to see a real investigation into her Islamic terror ties and her alleged election fraud?  Hmmm.  Don’t hold your breath.

Pennsylvania’s Islamic Totalitarianism: State Dems Call Christian Prayer “Bigoted” – Applaud Qur’an Reading At State House Session

“State Rep. Jason Dawkins, another Muslim lawmaker, opened the session Tuesday by reading from the Quran, prompting applause in the chamber.”

The favored religion on the Left is one that has moved some of its adherents to wage war against the West for 1,400 years, as The History of Jihad illustrates in detail. Is it just coincidence that the Left seems to oppose every counterterror and national security measure, and always to denigrate Judeo-Christian tradition while exalting Islam?

An update on this story. “Pennsylvania state Dems slam Republican’s prayer as ‘offensive,’ bigoted,” by Lukas Mikelionis, Fox News, March 27, 2019:

Pennsylvania state Democrats branded as “offensive” a Republican’s decision Monday to open a voting session with a prayer and a thank-you to President Trump for supporting Israel, with some Dems claiming to be “horrified” by the remarks and accusing the female lawmaker of Islamophobia.

State Rep. Stephanie Borowicz, a Republican and associate pastor’s wife who was elected to the state House in November, was accused of bigotry after she invoked the name of Jesus at least 13 times just before the Legislature swore in its first Muslim woman at the Statehouse in Harrisburg.

“God forgive us — Jesus — we’ve lost sight of you, we’ve forgotten you, God, in our country, and we’re asking you to forgive us,” Borowicz said added. She then praised President Trump for his support of Israel.

“I claim all these things in the powerful, mighty name of Jesus, the one who, at the name of Jesus, every knee will bow, and every tongue will confess, Jesus, that you are Lord, in Jesus’ name,” Borowicz said.

Democrats slammed her for the prayer. Rep. Movita Johnson-Harrell, the Muslim lawmaker who was sworn in at the Statehouse, accused Borowicz of using her religion against her….

State Rep. Jason Dawkins, another Muslim lawmaker, opened the session Tuesday by reading from the Quran, prompting applause in the chamber.

Unvaccinated Children Torn From Parents in Horrifying Late Night SWAT Raid

Warning: If you care about parental rights, this story will infuriate you.

On February 25, a pregnant mother took her 2-year-old son to the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine clinic in Tempe, Arizona because he had a fever of over 100. The doctor instructed the mother to take him to the emergency room because he is unvaccinated and she feared he could have meningitis.

The doctor called the emergency room at Banner Cardon Children’s Medical Center in Mesa to let them know the boy would be arriving.

But after leaving the doctor’s office, the boy showed signs of improvement. He was laughing and playing with his siblings, and his temperature moved closer to normal. Around 6:30 pm, the mother called the doctor to let her know the toddler no longer had a fever and she would not be taking him to the emergency room.

In Arizona, parents may decline vaccinations for their child based on personal, religious, or medical exemptions, but the mother was still concerned that the Arizona Department of Child Safety (DCS) would come after her. One can’t blame her for being afraid, as unvaccinated families have been targets of dystopian crackdowns and witch hunts of late.

The doctor assured her DCS would not come after her. According to police records, the mother then agreed to take her son to the hospital.

This is when things took a particularly nasty turn, reports AZCentral:

About three hours later, the hospital contacted the doctor to advise her that the child had not shown up and the mother wasn’t answering her phone, according to police records. The doctor contacted DCS.

A DCS caseworker called Chandler Police and “requested officers to check the welfare of a two year old infant,” according to police records. A caseworker said he was on his way to the house.

It was about 10:30 p.m. when two police officers knocked on the family’s door. The officers heard someone coughing.

Officer Tyler Cascio wrote in a police report that he knocked on the door several times but no one answered. (source)

The police then asked a neighbor to call the mother to let her know they wanted to speak to her. Meanwhile, the boy’s father contacted the police:

Police dispatch told the officers that a man at the home had called requesting that they call him. They called, and the man identified himself as the sick boy’s father.

The officer said they told the father they needed to enter the home for DCS to check on the child. The father refused, explaining that his son’s “fever broke and he was fine,” according to police records. (source)

Then things escalated.

Despite the father’s attempt to assure police his child was fine, things escalated.

The caseworker informed officers that DCS planned to obtain a “temporary custody notice” from a judge to remove the child for emergency medical aid.

Officers then consulted with the police criminal investigations bureau and SWAT.

Yes, SWAT.

I know – it is outrageous and terrifying.

After 1:00 AM, officers kicked down the family’s door.

One officer carried a shield, while another was described as having “lethal coverage.” Officers pointing guns yelled, “Chandler Police Department,” and entered the house.

The father came to the door. Officers placed him in handcuffs and took him and the mother outside. (source)

Neither of the parents was arrested.

Officials took all three children to Banner Cardon Medical Center.

Let’s pause here for a moment to reflect on something: Authorities took the children under the guise of caring about their well-being. The fact that armed strangers snatching children away from their parents and siblings in the middle of the night could be, I don’t know – TRAUMATIC – didn’t seem to cross their minds.

Unbelievable.

Then the “legal process” took 10 days.

The parents had to wait 10 days to see a judge and begin fighting to get their children back.

Attorneys for the parents said the children hadn’t seen each other since being taken from their parents’ home. The parents had only had one visit with their older children. DCS officials told the parents the toddler couldn’t make that visit because he was at a medical appointment.

The state’s attorney argued that the children shouldn’t be returned to their parents yet because they’d been hostile to DCS workers and weren’t cooperating. He said the parents had attended a DCS visit with members of Arizona DCS Oversight Group who were combative toward DCS workers. He said the grandfather had tried to videotape a meeting with DCS, and recording is not allowed to protect the privacy of the children. (source)

DCS wanted the parents to undergo psychological evaluations, the father was required to undergo drug testing, and the grandparents agreed to background checks so they could become temporary caregivers for the children.

While everything about this case is horrifying, there is a bit of good news.

The family has a powerful ally:

Rep. Kelly Townsend, R-Mesa, who helped craft legislation requiring DCS to obtain a warrant before removing a child from their parents or guardians in non-emergency circumstances, said she was outraged by the response of police and DCS officials in the case.

“It was not the intent (of the law) that the level of force after obtaining a warrant was to bring in a SWAT team,” Townsend said. “The imagery is horrifying. What has our country become that we can tear down the doorway of a family who has a child with a high fever that disagrees with their doctor?” (source)

In Arizona, DCS used to be able to remove children from their homes without warrants, but that changed last July when lawmakers designated limited circumstances for removing a child from their parent without a warrant:

DCS must have probable cause to believe a child is at imminent risk of harm and there’s no less-intrusive alternative to removal, or DCS must have probable cause to believe a child is a victim of sexual or physical abuse that can only be evaluated by trained medical personnel…

…Concern over DCS abusing loopholes in the system prompted a second round of legislation in 2018. The restrictions designated “exigent circumstances” when DCS may remove children without a warrant. Removing the child must be so dire that there’s no time to use the electronic system to gain authorization from a judge who’s on call 24/7. (source)

Townsend wants a review of this legislation.

Townsend wants lawmakers to review the procedures that led to police using force, traumatizing a family, and putting three children in state custody.

She said that the fact that DCS obtained a court-approved warrant proves there wasn’t a life-threatening emergency.

Outside the courthouse, Townsend said she didn’t know the parents personally but was disturbed by the case.

“It was brought to my attention that these parents may have been targeted by the medical community because they hadn’t vaccinated their children,” she said.

Townsend said parents who don’t vaccinate their children because of medical concerns aren’t criminals and shouldn’t be treated as such. She worried physicians were using it as a reason to refer parents to DCS.

“I think if DCS decides to use this as a factor they would be violating a parent’s right to have a personal exemption, a religious exemption and perhaps a medical exemption,” she said. (source)

The family wants to warn others about DCS.

The father sent The Republic a statement. His family is scared, he said, but they feel compelled to warn other families:

We have been through a very traumatic experience with our encounter with DCS. We would like other parents out there to know and realize the amount of power DCS has over the welfare of your children. Even though we remain confident in our innocence through our case, it is immediately an uphill struggle of what to do or not to do. Even if you do not agree with them or the process in which they follow.

We thought they did not have the right to check on our children because they were getting better, from what they last heard about from us. We were in our home tending to our sick kids and did not want to be bothered in this tough time of illness.  With multiple children it is difficult to keep up their needs while they are ill, and to be bothered in the middle of the night by DCS was not something we were ready to tackle.

No matter what we though was right, it turned tragic with the removal of all of our children. The process of removal in our opinion was uncalled for and we would like to see the laws/process change when dealing with expedited removal of children.

Our children have sure been through a traumatizing experience and hope they have not been harmed psychologically or emotionally as we are a very happy family who love each other and would do anything for each other.

We hope to see a positive outcome for our trial, but worry about what the kids have been though. We would like to see some sort of public service announcement by DCS to inform other parents out there that this could happen to them, because nobody, especially children should have to go through what we are going through. We love our children and are doing everything possible to get them back to us. (source)

“What about parents’ rights to decide what’s best for their child?” Townsend said. “Parents felt the child was fine. Next thing we know, the Gestapo is at their door.”

The three children have been placed with their grandparents, and the parents are able to see them but have no idea when – or if – they will get them back.

What do you think about this case?

Do you think the parents handled things well? Do you believe the state acted properly?

State Upholds Law that Men Can Rape Women if They Withdraw Consent After Sex Begins

North Carolina — already not considered a democracy and characterized as more a dictatorial entity on par with Cuba and Indonesia — managed, with a fateful decision by the state Supreme Court in 1977, to pass a law allowing the legal rape of women who revoke consent to sex once the act has been initiated. Despite garnering national coverage for such a horrifying law, the law on the books still stands, and as a result, rape cases that actually make it to trial are extremely tough to win convictions—as all the defendant has to do is say the sex was consensual.

Most sex offense cases involve people who know each other, Cumberland District Attorney Billy West said, which makes those cases the most difficult.

A team of 11 media partners including Carolina Public Press and The Fayetteville Observer has extensively examined the state law in North Carolina and their findings are worrisome, to say the least. 

If actual sexual penetration occurs under the banner of consensuality, that agreement to have sex cannot— according to North Carolina law for decades — be suddenly revoked, even if a man turns violent.

“If the actual penetration is accomplished with the woman’s consent, the accused is not guilty of rape, although he may be guilty of another crime because of his subsequent actions,” the North Carolina Supreme Court wrote in its decades-old decision in State v. Way.

“It’s really stupid,” stated then-19-year-old Aaliyah Palmer — who allegedly agreed to sex — but revoked consent when the man she’d met at a party turned violent — to the Fayetteville Observer. “If I tell you no and you kept going, that’s rape.”

Palmer understandably surmised her brutal encounter amounted to rape — as it did — but discovered to her astonishment state law disagreed.

As TFTP reported at the time, a bill proposed in 2017, sought to jolt the fraught Southern state into the 21st Century — making legal rape illegal again.

“Legislators are hearing more and more about women who have been raped and are being denied justice because of this crazy loophole,” asserted North Carolina Senator Jeff Jackson, who introduced a bill on March 30 — similar to another he attempted in 2015 — to append the misogynistic law.

Jackson proposed, according to the text of the bill, “a person may withdraw consent to engage in vaginal intercourse in the middle of the intercourse, even if the actual penetration is accomplished with consent and even if there is only one act of vaginal intercourse.”

Seems simple enough. Sadly, the General Assembly never acted on the measure.

“This really shouldn’t be a controversial matter,” Jackson said. “North Carolina is the only state in the country where no doesn’t really mean no. Right now, if a woman tells a man to stop having sex he is under no legal obligation to do so, as long as she initially consented. If sex turns violent, the woman has no right to tell the man he must stop.”

Let that last part sink in for a moment: A man in North Carolina can forcibly complete a sex act with a woman — even if he employs violence to get his way.

That’s rape by nearly any definition — except in the eyes of the repressive state.

“Very few legislators are aware that this is the current state of our law,” lamented Jackson. “They’re very surprised when I tell them. Most of my conversations have been educating our members about this plainly unacceptable loophole in our rape law. I have not had any members defend the loophole. Every legislator I’ve spoken to agrees we need to fix this.”

Despite what should be unfettered support for a bill rescinding a man’s apparent ‘right’ to rape women, the state senator has received surprisingly resolute pushback by those who view Jackson’s proposed legislation as interfering with natural intercourse.

For 38 years this law has been permitted to languish on the books — depriving an untold number of rape victims from justice, human rights, and basic common decency.

“Aside from perpetrators not being held accountable, when women cannot revoke consent, then we are telling them violence can be perpetrated against them if they consented to begin with and then had a change of heart,” Angelica Wind, an advocate and executive director of Our Voice — a North Carolina-based crisis intervention and prevention agency for victims of sexual violence — said, adding, “allowing women to revoke consent would be transformative for the state of North Carolina.”

Hopefully, as this issue garners more attention, this archaic law will soon be overturned.

$222 Trillion: True Size Of US National Debt, Including Unfunded Liabilities

The United States is on a path to financial ruin, and everyone can see what is happening, but nobody can seem to come up with a way to stop it.  According to the U.S. Treasury, the federal government is currently 22 trillion dollars in debt, and that represents the single largest debt in the history of the planet.  Over the past decade, we have been adding to that debt at a rate of about 1.1 trillion dollars a year, and we will add more than a trillion dollars to that total once again this year.  But when you add in our unfunded liabilities, our long-term financial outlook as a nation looks downright apocalyptic.  According to Boston University economics professor Laurence Kotlikoff, the U.S. is currently facing 200 trillion dollars in unfunded liabilities, and when you add that number to our 22 trillion dollar debt, you get a grand total of 222 trillion dollars.

Of course, we are never going to pay back all of this debt.

The truth is that we are just going to keep accumulating more debt until the system completely and utterly collapses.

And even though the federal government is the biggest offender, there are also others to blame for the mess that we find ourselves in.  State and local governments are more than 3 trillion dollars in debt, corporate debt has more than doubled since the last financial crisis, and U.S. consumers are more than 13 trillion dollars in debt.

When you add it all together, the total amount of debt in our society is well above 300 percent of GDP, and it keeps rising with each passing year.

But for the moment, let’s just focus on the giant mountain of debt that the federal government has piled up.  The U.S. budget deficit for last month was 234 billion dollars, and that was an all-time record for a single month.  Our exploding debt is an existential threat to our nation, and we are literally destroying the bright future that our children and our grandchildren were supposed to have.

And it isn’t just a 22 trillion dollar debt that we are leaving them with.  We have also made tens of trillions of dollars worth of future promises that we expect future generations to keep.  These are called “unfunded liabilities” because we do not currently have the money to fulfill those obligations.

According to official government projections, the Social Security Administration is facing a 13 trillion dollar unfunded liability over the next 75 years, and Medicare is facing a 37 trillion dollar unfunded liability over the same time frame.

Adding those two numbers together, we get a grand total of 50 trillion dollars.

Where in the world would we ever be able to get so much money when we are already drowning in debt?

Unfortunately, as is so often the case with government projections, those unfunded liability numbers are actually wildly optimistic.

Boston University economics professor Laurence Kotlikoff has been studying our unfunded liability crisis for many years, and according to him the real number is 200 trillion dollars

Consumers will largely bear the brunt of the country’s financial ruin, according to Kotlikoff, which is why it is crucial to give them the power to make better financial decisions.

While the United States’ official debt is $20 trillion, the fiscal gap is really 10 times larger — $200 trillion. That comes from adding in off-the-book liabilities, including debt that’s in the Federal Reserve’s hands, Kotlikoff said.

If Kotlikoff is correct, that means that the true size of the financial obligation that we are imposing upon future generations is 222 trillion dollars, and that number just keeps rising month after month.

Many pundits speak of a day when America will be bankrupt in the future, but according to Kotlikoff we are bankrupt “right now”

But Kotlikoff’s dire prognosis for the United States is enough to wake anyone out of even the deepest summer slumber.

“The evidence is in front of our eyes that we’re bankrupt,” Kotlikoff said. “It’s not bankrupt in the future. It’s bankrupt right now.”

Unfortunately, there doesn’t appear to be an easy way out.  Any politician that would be foolish enough to even threaten to reduce Social Security and Medicare benefits would be immediately voted out of office.  America’s population is rapidly aging, and about half of America’s seniors don’t have anything saved for retirement

The bad news is that almost half of Americans approaching retirement have nothing saved in a 401(k) or other individual account. The good news is that the new estimate, from the U.S. Government Accountability Office, is slightly better than a few years earlier.

Of those 55 and older, 48 percent had nothing put away in a 401(k)-style defined contribution plan or an individual retirement account, according to a GAO estimate for 2016 that was released Tuesday.

America’s seniors are counting on us to keep the promises that we have made to them.

Sadly, it doesn’t appear that we are going to be able to do that for too much longer.

In the end, we are going to have to make some very tough choices.  One Democrat actually started a petition to sell the state of Montana to Canada for a trillion dollars, and so far it has over 18,000 signatures.  Of course, we aren’t ever going to sell off pieces of our country, but we are going to have to find some way to come up with an enormous mountain of money.

When I ran for Congress last year, I made doing something about the national debt one of my top issues.  Unfortunately, concern about the national debt is not a priority for either political party right now, and that is a huge mistake.

You can spend more money than you are bringing in for quite a while, but eventually, a day of reckoning arrives.  Anyone that has ever gone into too much credit card debt knows exactly what I am talking about.  We have been on the biggest debt binge in the history of the world, and it has allowed us to enjoy a standard of living that is far beyond what we actually deserve, but the price that we will pay for such utter foolishness will be extremely painful indeed.

The “Good Guys” are Illegally Pushing for Door to Door Confiscation through Red Flag Polices – Not Law! Learn From History

“Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.” – William Pitt (the Younger), Speech in the House of Commons, November 18, 1783

In the light of what just allegedly happened in New Zealand, one might ask themselves the question, why it is that their acting government would attempt to disarm their own citizenry instead of arming them to protect themselves against armed assailants (Luke 11:21-22)?

Furthermore, why is their acting government detaining and charging their own citizens for sharing the video of this alleged massacre? After all, it was broadcasted LIVE on Facebook!

One man has been arrested and charged with two counts of objectionable materials in New Zealand’s “Films, Videos and Publications Act.”  He is being held without bail and could be sentenced up to 14 years in prison for each offense. This is one of many that have been charged.

Here in America, and like that of the shooting that took place at Parkland High School in Florida, all videos were banned from big tech companies from the likes of Facebook, Google, Twitter, etc.  And why?  It’s because eyewitness accounts did not align themselves with the CIA-controlled media’s narratives. There are 70 cameras inside of that school shooting and only four videos were released.

Don’t forget about the teacher that said that she had seen the shooter and believed him to be a police officer.

Simultaneously, students were outside speaking to Nichols Cruz.

Could it be that this alleged massacre in New Zealand had inconstancies found in the film that they did not want anyone to see?

Could it be that New Zealanders thought it a little odd that their prime minister, while wearing a hijab immediately after the shooting, stated that “Our gun laws will change.”   Within just six days, they banned military-style firearms.

Maybe they thought it telling when the CIA-controlled media lied while promulgating that the masses are turning in their guns (A tactic to belittle opposition), when in fact, their gun control measures completely backfired.

The Sons of Liberty reports,

Tyler Durden explains that this is not the norm and that Kiwis are not complying, for the most part, with the ban.

Out of an estimated 1.2 million registered guns, New Zealand police report that as of Tuesday night, 37 firearms have been surrendered nationwide, according to BuzzFeed. 

No accounting was provided of how many people owned those guns, the types of firearms, or where they were surrendered. 

The reports of citizens disarming themselves came after a Monday announcement by Prime minister Jacinda Ardern that several “in principle decisions” on gun control have been made by Cabinet ministers, while praising residents who have surrendered their guns to police.

Ardern asked residents to surrender their weapons on Monday. 

“To make our community safer, the time to act is now,” she said. “I want to remind people, you can surrender your gun to the police at any time. In fact I have seen reports that people are in fact already doing this. I applaud that effort, and if you are thinking about surrendering your weapon, I would encourage you to do so. 

New Zealand Bans Guns – Vast Non-Compliance From Gun Owners

Again, and in parallel to the shooting in Parkland, Florida, behind the ‘March For Our Lives” (Permits were issued 2 months before this school shooting in order to march in Washington), 55 new gun control laws were passed in 26 states by a majority of Republican governors.  Take note, as the Denver Post points out, this massive push for gun control has bipartisan support. In fact, the majority of governors who signed in new gun control measures were Republicans.

Now, we are seeing the alleged “good guys” like Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham beginning to push for Red Flag laws, which are not law.  “Shall not be infringed” means shall not be infringed (2nd Amendment of the Bill of RIGHTS).  In the end, this will move to door to door gun confiscations if these criminals are not lawfully stopped.

Consider what this new administration is doing to Americans today could have never been done under that of criminal Barack Hussein Obama’s administration.  Never.

‘Not Coming for Your Guns?’ Since Parkland Shooting, 26 States Have Passed 55 Gun Control Laws

Now, we are dealing with those who you have been led to believe are the good guys, you know the Republican conservatives, advocating illegal Red Flag laws. Call it what you will, it matters not, it is all unlawful activity.

Forefathers Face-off with Modern Politicians – The 2nd Amendment is a God-Given RIGHT, Americans, not a Privilege!

Where are these said representatives that are attempting to disarm you in America deriving this authority from? It is not from “We the People!” 

“The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government – lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.” ― Patrick Henry 

“The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.” – Samuel Adams, Massachusetts Ratifying Convention, 1788

If you take the time to investigate many of these massacres, you will find, more than not, that many of them are false flags. You can identify the guilty culprits when you see who stands to gain by attempting to disarm, rather than to arm after these massacres take place.

Over and over again and across the globe, we are seeing that these alleged massacres happen while the government mysteriously waits in the shadows only to disarm or ban shortly thereafter.

“Never trust a government that doesn’t trust it’s own citizens with guns.” –Benjamin Franklin

You have heard it said, never let a good crisis go to waste.  Well, you need to begin to ask yourselves who is responsible for the crisis (Jeremiah 11:9)?

Governments, on a daily basis, somehow accuse law-abiding citizens, through totalitarian methods, for what the guilty are responsible for.

Another question that one should ask themselves is, who gains from these massacres?  Well again, the government stands in the shadows only to disarm the people and what is worse than all of that is those who are legislating illegally are advocating disarmament while surrounded with fully armed security details protecting themselves from the people that they are to serve.

Now, we are even beginning to see door to door confiscations. One must remember that it is no longer law enforcement at this point.  You are now dealing with agents of the state that are not doing their jobs, but are now violating their oaths (Psalm 94:20).

Door to Door Gun Confiscation: No Longer Law Enforcement, Now Agents of the State!-Don’t Let it Get This Far America

History teaches us what happens to people in many countries after disarmament takes place, the answer is genocide!  This is a fact that no one can dispute.

Furthermore, if you trust in a government that sanctions the murder of its own children (Proverbs 6:17) to represent you, then you have ignorantly taken on that which runs counter to that of American Government.

Did You Know That Your Government is Arming Agencies Like the IRS, DHS, VHA, OIG, SSA, NPS?

Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

Josef Stalin, the sole leader of the Soviet Union from 1924 to 1953, said:

“If the opposition disarms, well and good. If it refuses to disarm, we shall disarm it ourselves.”

In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Mao Tze Tung, communist dictator of China said:

“War can only be abolished through war, and in order to get rid of the gun it is necessary to take up the gun.”

China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Idi Amin, president of Uganda from 1971 to 1979, said:

“I do not want to be controlled by any superpower. I myself consider myself the most powerful figure in the world, and that is why I do not let any superpower control me.” 

Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Pol Pot, who created in Cambodia one of the 20th century’s most brutal and radical regimes, was responsible for killing one million of his own ‘educated,’ yet unarmed citizens.

Yet in America, the parents in the 86% ratio that are dropping their kids off in public schools to be illegally indoctrinated by the federal government through a violation of the Tenth Amendment now have some students so dumbed down that they are shouting “No more guns.”

For the record, I hate violence.  I mean I hate it, but there comes a time when enough is enough, no more and resistance comes into play. This is illegal and criminal at every given incremental step that these agents of the state are taking and it comes to a point where either you are going to throw off those who pervert the Constitution and its plain declarations or you will once again be enslaved (Deuteronomy 28:63).  That is the lessons and examples that our forefathers have left us.

 “What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms.” – Thomas Jefferson, letter to James Madison, December 20, 1787
