WATCH: Schumer Says BORDER FENCE Makes U.S. More SECURE In 2009 Video


Written by Wes Walker on December 28, 2018

If the Schumer of 2009 were still in the Senate, instead of the 2018 version, we’d have already started building that border wall. Schumer USED to oppose illegal immigration as wrong. Now he will literally shut down the Government to defend it. He used to OPPOSE the use of phrases like ‘undocumented workers’ because those words would “convey a message to the American people that their government is not serious about combatting illegal immigration”.

And now, he’s more than happy to convey that very message to the American people. More than that, he tries to paint those who oppose his open-borders agenda as somehow ‘immoral’.

“People who enter the United States without our permission are illegal aliens, and illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who entered the United States legally,” Schumer continued. “Any immigration solution must recognize that we must do as much as we can to gain operational control of our borders as soon as possible.”

…”The American people need to know that, because of our efforts in Congress, our border is far more secure today than it was when we began debating comprehensive immigration reform in 2005,” Schumer stated. “Between 2005 and 2009, a vast amount of progress has been made on our borders and ports of entry.”

“This progress includes … construction of 630 miles of border fence that create a significant barrier to illegal immigration on our southern land border,” Schumer explained.

Schumer is by no means the only Democrat who’s ‘evolved’ over this issue.

Pelosi and Schumer posted tweets slamming Trump that were word-for-word identical on Christmas Eve.

It’s clear they aren’t thinking for themselves. But seeing how they are ‘evolving’ on policy, and not standing on principle, it makes you wonder. Whose script are they reading from? And why? 

Dear CNN: Illegal Immigrant Kills Cop On Christmas Day – Is That ‘News?’


Written by Wes Walker on December 28, 2018

A legal immigrant spent Christmas day apart from his wife and kid, to serve and protect… only to be gunned down by an illegal immigrant.

Does anything explain where Left and Right divide on the issue of immigration in starker terms than this sad tale?

Newman’s police chief broke down in tears while describing what happened to Officer Ronil Singh, who moved here from Fiji lawfully with dreams of being a cop.

Here’s a family photo, taken just hours before his death.

What makes this story all the more tragic was that he was working an overtime shift and responding to a DUI call. Singh was murdered by an illegal immigrant who fled the scene. Singh radioed for help and returned fire, but help arrived too late.

Governor Jerry Brown issued a statement after the shooting.

“On behalf of all Californians, Anne (Brown’s wife) and I extend our condolences to Corp. Singh’s wife, young son, loved ones and colleagues,” Brown said. “Our hearts are with the entire community of Newman and law enforcement officers across the state who risk their lives every day to protect and serve the people of California.”

Newman is a small city off Interstate 5 north of Los Banos. Singh had been a police officer there since 2011. He was married and the father of a 5-month-old son.
Source: Mercury News

Governor Moonbeam should sit this one out. One of the illegal immigrants he works so VERY hard to advocate for and defend just murdered a LAWFUL immigrant who arrived the way Trump and his supporters want ALL immigrants to come into the country.

Isn’t this story exactly what the government ‘shutdown’ showdown is all about in the first place?

Trump wants everyone coming to America to come through what he metaphorically described as a ‘big very beautiful door’ in that wall. Trump just wants a wall there to keep out the miserable bastards who gun down good cops at traffic stops.

Schumer and Nancy WANT those miserable bastards to come in unopposed. Trump does not.

Is this really so hard to understand?

Unplanned to expose the truth about PP


Reported by Charlie Butts (OneNewsNow.com) | Friday, December 28, 2018

Planned Parenthood buildingA pro-life movie that is coming out next year is anticipated to destroy all the myths about abortion spread by left-wing media.

The film is titled, Unplanned: the Abby Johnson Story.

Johnson worked as the director of a Planned Parenthood in the Bryan/College Station area to the northwest of Houston, Texas, for about eight years – doing so because she wanted to help women.

Cary Solomon – the writer, director and producer of the movie – says that Johnson did not do abortions until they were shorthanded one day.

“In her own words, she said I’d done a lot of ultrasounds, but I had never seen a baby so completely as I did that day – hands moving, eyes, you know, everything … legs, Solomon shared. “The baby was alive, and then suddenly, I saw the catheter entered into the woman’s uterus to basically remove the baby, and the baby tried to escape.

Needless to say, the escape was unsuccessfully. A tiny human being was denied life.

It was then that Johnson realized she had been the supervisor over the termination of 22,000 babies during her tenure. She subsequently resigned and joined the pro-life movement.

Solomon explained that Unplanned is a pro-life movie, but noted that it was not done in a fashion to condemn women who have experienced abortion.

“For women that have not had abortions or children or young girls that are considering it, we want them to realize that this is a baby,” the pro-life director asserted. “You have to contemplate that. You cannot buy into the myth of the media and of Planned Parenthood that it’s not a baby.”

Already, Solomon’s crew is working on opening the movie in as many theaters nationwide as possible, and so far, 500 have expressed interest.

Unplanned is slated to make its debut in March.

OH legislators fail to override Kasich


Reported by Charlie Butts (OneNewsNow.com) | Thursday, December 27, 2018

John KasichOhio legislators attempted but failed to pass a pro-life bill that died due to a veto. As he promised to do, Gov. John Kasich delivered a veto of the Heartbeat Bill, which would make illegal an abortion if the abortionist detects a heartbeat.

Yet the pro-life state legislature attempted an override: the state House on Thursday voted 60-28 to successfully override the veto, and a vote in the Senate followed hours later and failed by one vote.

Kasich is term-limited and the governor-elect, Mike DeWine, has said he will sign the bill if it passes again. 

Barry Sheets, a spokesman for the Right to Life Coalition of Ohio, says the bill has been described as anti-abortion legislation but insists that’s not true.

“It would actually save babies,” he says. “They could not abort once a fetal heartbeat is detected, and we believe that that is a very strong line to draw for the first evidences of life.”

Kasich vetoed the legislation after claiming it would fail to stand up to a court challenge, but Sheets says the president of the state senate, who is an attorney, and other attorneys stated during floor debate that the bill would withstand constitutional scrutiny.

Janet Porter of Faith 2 Action tells OneNewsNow that pro-lifers will fight next year with DeWine as governor.

“Who will sign the Heartbeat Bill into law,” she predicts, “rather than heartlessly veto it like Gov. John Kasich did not just once but twice.”


Editor’s Note: This story has been updated after the Ohio senate voted on overriding the Heartbeat Bill.

—————————————————————————-
Everyone Is Smart, Except Trump


It really is quite simple.  Everyone is smart except Donald J. Trump.  That’s why they all are billionaires and all got elected President.  Only Trump does not know what he is doing. Only Trump does not know how to negotiate with Vladimir Putin.  Anderson Cooper knows how to stand up to Putin.  The whole crowd at MSNBC does.  All the journalists do.


They could not stand up to Matt Lauer at NBC.  They could not stand up to Charlie Rose at CBS.  They could not stand up to Mark Halperin at NBC, nor up to Leon Wieseltier at the New Republic, nor Jann Wenner at Rolling Stone, nor Michael Oreskes at NPR, anyone at the New York Times, or at the Associated Press.  But — oh, wow! — can they ever stand up to Putin!  Only Trump is incapable of negotiating with the Russian tyrant.


Remember the four years when Anderson Cooper was President of the United States?  And before that — when the entire Washington Post editorial staff jointly were elected to be President?  Remember?  Neither do I.


The Seedier Media never have negotiated life and death, not corporate life and death, and not human life and death.  They think they know how to negotiate, but they do not know how.  They go to a college, are told by peers that they are smart, get some good grades, proceed to a graduate degree in journalism, and get hired as analysts.  Now they are experts, ready to take on Putin and the Iranian Ayatollahs at age 30.


That is not the road to expertise in tough dealing.  The alternate road is that, along the way, maybe you get forced into some street fights.  Sometimes the other guy wins, and sometimes you beat the intestines out of him.  Then you deal with grown-ups as you mature, and you learn that people can be nasty, often after they smile and speak softly.  You get cheated a few times, played.  And you learn.  Maybe you become an attorney litigating multi-million-dollar case matters.  Say what you will about attorneys, but those years — not the years in law school, not the years drafting legal memoranda, but the years of meeting face-to-face and confronting opposing counsel — those years can teach a great deal.  They can teach how to transition from sweet, gentle, diplomatic negotiating to tough negotiating.  At some point, with enough tough-nosed experience, you figure out Trump’s “The Art of the Deal” yourself.


Trump’s voters get him because not only is he we, but we are he.  We were not snowflaked-for-life by effete professors who themselves never had negotiated tough life-or-death serious deals.  Instead we live in the real world, and we know how that works.  Not based on social science theories, not based on “conceptual negotiating models”.  But based on the people we have met over life, and always will hate.  That worst boss we ever had.  The coworker who tried to sabotage us.  We know the sons of bums whom we survived, the dastardly types who are out there, and we learned from those experiences how to deal with them.  We won’t have John Kerry soothe us by having James Taylor sing “You’ve Got a Friend” carols.


The Bushes got us into all kinds of messes.  The first one killed the economic miracle that Reagan had fashioned.  The second one screwed up the Middle East, where Iraq and Iran beautifully were engaged in killing each other for years, and he got us mired into the middle of the muddle.  Clinton was too busy with Monica Lewinsky to protect us from Osama bin Laden when we had him in our sights.  Hillary gave us Benghazi and more.  And Obama and Kerry gave us the Iran Deal, ISIS run amok, America in retreat.  All to the daily praise of a media who now attack Trump every minute of every day.


So let us understand a few things:


Negotiating with NATO 


NATO is our friend.  They also rip off America.  They have been ripping us off forever.  We saved their butts — before there even was a NATO — in World War I.  They messed up, and 116,456 Americans had to die to save their butts.


Then they messed up again for the next two decades because West Europeans are effete and so obsessed with their class manners and their rules of savoir faire and their socialist welfare states and their early retirements that they did not have the character to stand up to Hitler in the 1930s.  Peace in our time.  So they messed up, and we had to save their butts again.  And another 405,399 Americans died for them during World War II.  And then we had to rebuild them!  And we had to station our boys in Germany and all over their blood-stained continent.  So, hey, we love those guys.  We love NATO.


And yet they still rip us off.  We pay 4% of our gigantic gross domestic product to protect them, and they will not pay a lousy 2% of their GDP towards their own defense.  Is there a culture more penny-pinching-cheap-and-stingy than the fine constituents of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization?  These cheap baseborn prigs will not pay their fare.  They are too cheap.  They expect America to send boys to die for them in one world war, then another — hundreds of thousands — and then to pay for their NATO defense even a century later.  And then they have the temerity to cheat us further in trade


Long before Trump, they set up tariffs against us for so many things.  If the average American knew how badly Europe has been ripping us off for decades with their tariffs, no one in this country would buy anything European again.  We would say, as a matter of self-respect and personal pride, “I no longer will buy anything but American, no matter what it costs”.


Every American President has complained about the cheating and imbalance — the NATO penny-pinching-cheapness, the tariff and trade imbalances.  In more recent years, the various Bushes complained about it.  Even Obama complained about it.  But they all did it so gently, so diplomatically.  They would deliver the sermon, just as the pastor predictably tells the church-goers on Sunday morning that he is against sin, and the Europeans would sit quietly and nod their heads — nodding from sleeping, not from agreeing — and then they would go back out and sin some more.  Another four years of America being suckered and snookered.  All they had to do was give Obama a Nobel Peace Prize his ninth month in office and let Kerry ride his bike around Paris.


So Trump did what any effective negotiator would do: he took note of past approaches to NATO and their failures, and correctly determined that the only way to get these penny-pinching-cheap baseborn prigs to pay their freight would be to bulldoze right into their faces, stare them right in their glazed eyes with cameras rolling, and tell them point-blank the equivalent of: “You are the cheapest penny-pinching, miserly, stingy, tightwadded skinflints ever.  And it is going to stop on my watch.  Whatever it takes from my end, you selfish, curmudgeonly cheap prigs, you are going to pay your fair share.  I am not being diplomatic.  I am being All-Business: either you start to pay or, wow, are you in for some surprises!  And you know what you read in the Fake News: I am crazy!  I am out of control!  So, lemme see.  I know: We will go to trade war!  How do you like that?  Maybe we even will pull all our troops out of Europe.  Hmmm.  Yeah, maybe.  Why not?  Sounds good.  Well, let’s see.”


So Trump stuffed it into their quiche-and-schnitzel ingesting faces.  And he convinced them — thanks to America’s Seedier Media who are the real secret to the “Legend That is Trump” — that he just might be crazy enough to go to trade war and to pull American boys home.  They knew that Clinton and Bush x 2 and Kerry and Hillary and Nobel Laureate Obama never would do it.  But they also know that Trump just might.  And if they think they are going to find comfort and moderating in his new advisers, John Bolton and Mike Pompeo, alongside him…. Nuh-uh.


So CNN and the Washington Post and all the Seedier Media attacked Trump for days: He is destroying the alliance!  He attacks our friends!


Baloney.  Obama was the one whom the Left Echo Chamber never called out for attacking our friends — Israel, Britain, so many others — while cozying up to Hugo Chavez, bowing to dictators, and dancing the Tango for Raul Castro.  Trump is just the opposite: He knows who the friends are, and he wants to maintain and strengthen those friendships.  It is no different from a parent telling a 35-year-old son: “I have been supporting you for thirty-five years.  I put you through college by signing four years and $100,000 PLUS in Loans.  You graduated college fifteen years ago.  For fifteen years I have been asking you nicely to look for a job and to start contributing.  Instead, you sit home all day playing video games, texting your friends on a smartphone I pay for, and picking little fuzz balls out of your navel.  So, look, I love you.  You are my flesh and blood.  But if you are not employed and earning a paycheck — and contributing to the cost of this household — in six months, we are throwing you out of the house”.  That boy is NATO.  Trump is Dad.  And all of us have been signing for the PLUS Loans.


Negotiating with Putin


Putin is a bad guy  A really bad guy.  He is better than Lenin.  Better than Stalin, Khrushchev, Kosygin, Brezhnev, Pol Pot, Mao.  But he is a really bad guy.


Here’s the thing: Putin is a dictator.  He answers to no one.  He does whatever he wants.  If there arises an opponent, that guy dies.  Maybe the opponent gets poked with a poisoned umbrella.  Maybe he gets shot on the street.  Maybe the opponent is forced to watch Susan Rice interviews telling the world that Benghazi happened because of a YouTube video seen by nine derelicts in Berkeley and that Bowe Berghdal served with honor and distinction.  But, one way or another, the opponent dies.


Trump knows this about Putin.  And here is what that means: If you insult Putin in public, like by telling the news media just before or after meeting with him that he is the Butcher of Crimea, and he messed with our elections, and is an overall jerk — then you will get nothing behind closed doors from Putin.  Putin will decide “To heck with you, and to heck with the relationship we just forged”.  Putin will get even, will take intense personal revenge, even if it is bad for Russia — even if it is bad for Putin.  Because there are no institutional reins on him.


But if you go in public and tell everyone that Putin is a nice guy (y’know, just like Kim Jong Un) and that Putin intensely maintains that he did not mess with elections — not sweet little Putey Wutey (even though he obviously did) — then you next can maintain the momentum established beforehand in the private room.  You can proceed to remind Putin what you told him privately: that this garbage has to stop —or else.  That if he messes in Syria, we will do “X”   If he messes with our Iran boycott, we will do “Y.”   We will generate so much oil from hydraulic fracturing and from ANWR and from all our sources that we will glut the market — if not tomorrow, then a year from now.  We will send even more lethal offensive military weapons to Ukraine.  We can restore the promised shield to Eastern Europe that Obama withdrew.  And even if we cannot mess with Russian elections (because they have no elections), they do have computers — and, so help us, we will mess with their technology in a way they cannot imagine.  Trump knows from his advisers what we can do.  If he sweet-talks Putin in public — just Putin on the Ritz — then everything that Trump has told Putin privately can be reinforced with action, and he even can wedge concessions because, against that background, Putin knows that no one will believe that he made any concessions.  Everyone is set to believe that Putin is getting whatever he wants, that Trump understands nothing.  So, in that setting, Putin can make concessions and still save face.


That is why Trump talks about him that way.  And that is the only possible way to do it when negotiating with a tyrant who has no checks and balances on him.  If you embarrass the tyrant publicly, then the tyrant never will make concessions because he will fear that people will say he was intimidated and backed down.  And that he never will do.  Meanwhile, Trump has expelled 60 Russians from America, reversed Obama policy and sent lethal weapons to Ukraine, and is pressing Germany severely on its pipeline project with Russia.


The Bottom Line

At the end of the day, Donald Trump is over seventy years old.  He has made many mistakes in his life.  He still makes some.  He is human.  But Trump likewise has spent three score and a dozen years learning.  He has seen some of his businesses go bankrupt, and he has learned from those experiences to be a billionaire and not let it happen again.  No doubt that he has been fooled, outsmarted in years past.  And he has learned from life.

He is a tough and smart negotiator.  He sizes up his opponent, and he knows that the approach that works best for one is not the same as for another.  It does not matter what he says publicly about his negotiating opponent.  What matters is what results months later.

In his first eighteen months in Washington, this man has turned around the American economy, brought us near full employment, reduced the welfare and food stamp lines, wiped out ISIS in Raqqa, moved America’s Israel embassy to Jerusalem, successfully has launched massive deregulation of the economy, has opened oil exploration in ANWR, is rebuilding the military massively, has walked out of the useless Paris Climate Accords that were negotiated by America’s amateurs who always get snookered, canned the disastrous Iran Deal, exited the bogus United Nations Human Rights Council.  He has Canada and Mexico convinced he will walk out of NAFTA if they do not pony up, and he has the Europeans convinced he will walk out of NATO if they don’t stop being the cheap and lazy parasitic penny-pinchers they are.  He has slashed income taxes, expanded legal protections for college students falsely accused of crimes, has taken real steps to protect religious freedoms and liberties promised in the First Amendment, boldly has taken on the lyme-disease-quality of a legislative mess that he inherited from Reagan-Bush-Clinton-Bush-Obama on immigration, and has appointed a steady line of remarkably brilliant conservative federal judges to sit on the district courts, the circuit appellate courts, and the Supreme Court.

What has Anderson Cooper achieved during that period?  Jim Acosta or the editorial staffs of the New York Times and Washington Post?  They have not even found the courage and strength to stand up to the coworkers and celebrities within their orbits who abuse sexually or psychologically or emotionally.  They have no accomplishments to compare to his.  Just their effete opinions, all echoing each other, all echoing, echoing, echoing.  They gave us eight years of Nobel Peace Laureate Obama negotiating with the ISIS JV team, calming the rise of the oceans, and healing the planet.

We will take Trump negotiating with Putin any day.

NYT calls out hypocrisy of feminist icon


Reported by Chris Woodward (OneNewsNow.com) | Friday, December 21, 2018

NYT PP storyA pro-life activist who famously left a Planned Parenthood job says she is grateful for a New York Times story that took on the abortion giant.

The liberal newspaper published a Dec. 13 story describing how pregnant employees are mistreated by Planned Parenthood, an obvious and ironic slap at the beloved hero of feminists and abortion rights supporters.

The supposed champion of feminism and women’s rights, the Times revealed, doesn’t offer maternity leave to its own employees, and the story describes the harsh treatment employees received while pregnant.

Other corporations and a liberal law firm are also named in the story.

“In interviews and legal documents,” the story states, “women at Planned Parenthood and other organizations with a feminist bent described discrimination that violated federal or state laws — managers considering pregnancy in hiring decisions, for example, or denying rest breaks recommended by a doctor.” 

Abby Johnson was among the people interviewed for the article because she gave birth while employed there.

“They asked me some questions and so I just told them Well, there is no parental leavepaid maternity leave for employees,” Johnson says. “They told me at that time that they were going to be writing this exposé on Planned Parenthood. Here they are, this group who is supposedly a champion for women, yet they’re not taking care of their own employees.”

According to the reporters Johnson talked to, she learned that Planned Parenthood tried to stop the article from being published.

Johnson

“I have no reason to believe these two reporters at The New York Times are pro-life,” she tells OneNewsNow, “but I do know they are really disgusted with the way Planned Parenthood is treating their employees, the lack of care that their showing for their employees.”

Johnson was asked about her own non-profit organization and told the reporters it offers 12 weeks of paid parental leave for employees.

Johnson estimates her revenue to be about one percent of Planned Parenthood’s.

“Yet we’re able to provide 12 weeks parental leave for our employees and Planned Parenthood is saying they can’t do it for theirs,” she points out. “Yet they’re making over $1 billion a year.”

Meanwhile, Johnson suggests the revelation about Planned Parenthood should be a reminder that organizations that claim to value children and motherhood should lead by example.

“Because we have got to treat our employees better than Planned Parenthood is treating theirs,” she explains. “This is just one area where we can start.”

Reported by Michael F. Haverluck (OneNewsNow.com) | Thursday, December 20, 2018

Chinese Commie PropagandaThe Chinese communist government continued its crackdown on Christianity by shutting down the nation’s largest underground churches.

A few of China’s prominent churches that were not under the control of the government were recently raided as communist officials seized Bibles, Christian materials and cell phones from church members.

Submit to the state first, God second

One 5,000-member church founded in Guangzhou Province in the 1970s – formerly pastored by the late prominent religious freedom advocate Samuel Lamb – was the latest target of the communist government in its quest to make all Chinese citizens in Christian churches bow down to its authority.

“An underground Protestant church, Guangzhou’s Rongguili Church, was closed and sealed after 60 police and Religious Affairs officials raided it [Sunday] morning,” Asia News reported. “Police entered the building during children’s Bible class, which was cancelled, and seized lists and books and took the names of those present – as well as their mobile phones.”

Rongguili Church and other underground churches that have not yet been forced to join the state’s Three-Self Movement – the Chinese government-controlled Protestant community – are now being targeted to conform to the government’s dictates … or be shut down.

“Since it is an underground Church, its meetings are deemed ‘illegal,’” Asia News’ Wang Zhicheng noted. “Local authorities posted a message on social media telling worshippers to go to 15 other registered Protestant churches.”

“[The Chinese government] knows that a lot of these churches … won’t budge, so they’re thinking of ways to completely shut them down and … dismantle them. I think these Christians, in preparation, knew what might come – but it’s inspiring that despite of that they still want to continue to worship and gather in public to testify their faith.”

Crackdown on Christianity

Shutting down China’s largest underground Protestant churches not submitting to the government’s communist dictates is becoming a trend in the world’s most populous nation, with Rongguili Church’s closure preceded by Beijing’s Zion Church being forced to close it doors in September and the Early Rain Covenant Church having to close down last week.

“The previous Sunday, Dec. 9, the Early Rain Covenant Church in Chengdu was shut down, and more than a dozen Christians were arrested, including Pastor Wang Yi,” WND reported. ”In September, Beijing’s largest unregistered church, the 1,500-member Zion Church, was closed … after refusing a government order to install security cameras in the sanctuary.”

After Wang Li was released from custody, he issued a public statement in defense of his nonviolent resistance to China’s “evil” and “wicked” rulers who authorized the raid of his church.

“I firmly believe that Christ has called me to carry out this faithful disobedience through a life of service, under this regime that opposes the Gospel and persecutes the Church,” Wang Li proclaimed, according to Christianity Today. “This is the means by which I preach the Gospel, and it is the mystery of the Gospel which I preach.”

The vocal and courageous pastor does not plan on relenting to Chinese authorities any time soon.

“Wang declared prior to his arrest that the church would continue to gather in the event of a government shutdown,” WND announced. “World magazine reported [that] 50 to 60 people gathered for worship outdoors this week and were arrested. At least 10 leaders of the Early Rain Church remain in custody. Leaders who have been released said they were shackled, starved and tortured while in detention.”

A call to end the persecution

With the intensifying crackdown on China’s underground church movement, American advocates of the persecuted Church are calling for action against the communist authorities’ crackdown on Christianity.

“The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom – an independent entity created by Congress – recommended in a report last week putting China on the State Department’s “Countries of Particular Concern” list of the world’s worst religious freedom violators,” WND added.

U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom Sam Brownback has called out Chinese President Xi Jingping for reverting to the old ways of the Chinese government.

“China isn’t backing away from the religious persecution,” Brownback asserted, according to CNN. “It seems to be expanding.”

And there are no signs that the communist regime’s incessant attack on the Church will abate any time soon.

“The Chinese government is increasingly concerned about the growth of Christianity – especially among underground communities – and is implementing with ever-growing rigor new regulations on religious activities with the aim of eliminating churches that are not under the control of patriotic associations,” Zhicheng informed. “Recent reports indicate that Beijing’s Cathedral of the Immaculate will also not be spared. In this case, the church will be closed indefinitely for [so-called] ‘repairs,’ Catholic worshippers are invited to use the Church of St Saviour [in] Beitang.”

“Repairs” are reportedly the excuse Chinese authorities are using to at least temporarily shut churches down that do not bow down to their authority.

“For many believers, these ‘repairs’ are just a veiled attempt to hamper Christmas celebrations, which attract thousands of people – even non-Christians – whose curiosity often leads them to the catechumenate,” Zhicheng added. “Conversely, other Catholics believe that ‘repairs’ are needed, but the question remains as to why they should start just a few days before Christmas.”

Gutless President in Wall-less Country


Commentary by Ann Coulter | Posted: Dec 19, 2018 4:30 PM

Gutless President in Wall-less Country

If you were elected president after decades of politicians doing nothing about the millions of illegals pouring into our country every year, committing crimes, dealing drugs, driving drunk, molesting children and killing Americans like Kate Steinle, and your central campaign promise — repeated every day — was to build a wall, wouldn’t you have spent the entirety of your transition period working on getting it done? 

Wouldn’t you have been building prototypes, developing relationships with key congressional allies and talking to military leaders about using the Seabees or the Army Corps of Engineers to build the wall? 

Wouldn’t you skip the inauguration and take the oath of office in San Diego so you could get started on supervising wall construction immediately after putting your hand on the Bible and being sworn in as the leader of the free world? 

You would if you meant it. 

Well, Donald Trump didn’t do that. 

OK, sure he could have taken the oath in D.C., gone to a few balls, then started the wall on day two of his presidency. But he didn’t do that either. 

Maybe I’m a literalist. A zealot. When people kept telling me to be patient — the wall is coming! — I nursed a private hope that I was wrong, and they were right. 

It is now crystal clear that one of two things is true: Either Trump never intended to build the wall and was scamming voters all along, or he has no idea how to get it done and zero interest in finding out. 

He sacrifices every opportunity to make the wall happen. 

For two years, Trump pretended to believe the president of the United States needs express authorization from Congress to defend the nation’s borders and blamed the Republican majority for not “funding” the wall. 

In a few weeks, he’ll start blaming the Democratic House. 

Last week — several whole days ago — Trump said over and over again that he would shut down the government if he didn’t get funding for the wall — the precise thing he claims he needs. “We need border security. The wall is a part of border security,” he said. “If we don’t have border security, we’ll shut down the government.”

Trump wore the shutdown over the wall as a badge of honor: “You want to know something? OK, you want to put that on me. I’ll take it. You know what I’ll say? Yes, if we don’t get what we want … I will shut down the government. Absolutely.” 

“WALL FUNDING OFF TABLE “

In other words, Trump is doing exactly what I feared he would do in the worst conceivable way. He’s not building the wall, while making ridiculous promises right up until the second before he folds. 

The Washington Post loves to find the one crazy, trailer park lady who supports Trump because she’s had religious ecstasies about him, but most people who voted for him did so with a boatload of qualms. 

The basic factory setting on the perception of Trump is: gigantic douchebag. This is a man who manufactured fake Time magazine covers featuring himself with the headline, “Donald Trump: The ‘Apprentice’ is a television smash!” so that he could put framed copies of it on the walls of his clubs. 

His business is convincing people with lowbrow taste to give him their money. 

He’s a vulgar publicity hound who used to call reporters in a fake voice and pretend to be his own PR agent, “John Miller” or “John Barron,” so he could brag that actresses wanted to date him. 

On one “Apprentice” episode, the reward for the winning team was: to see Trump’s apartment. Not to eat there or spend the night. They got to see it. “As a little treat,” he said, “you’re gonna see the nicest apartment in New York City.” He added: “I show this apartment to very few people. Presidents, kings …” 

It’s not as if a majority of his voters weren’t clear-eyed about what kind of man he is. If anything, Trump’s vulgar narcissism made his vow to build a wall more believable. Respectable politicians had made similar promises over the years — and they always betrayed the voters. Maybe it took a sociopath to ignore elite opinion and keep his word. 

On the basis of his self-interest alone, he must know that if he doesn’t build the wall, he has zero chance of being re-elected and a 100 percent chance of being utterly humiliated. 

But when Trump is alone with Ivanka, they seem to agree that the wall has nothing to do with it. The people just love him for who he is! In a country of 320 million people, I’m sure there are some, but I have yet to meet a person who said, Yeah, I don’t really care about immigration or trade, I just love his personality! 

What else were we going to do? He was the only one talking sense. Unfortunately, that’s all he does: talk. He’s not interested in doing anything that would require the tiniest bit of effort. 

In the end, we’ll probably find out “wall” was Trump’s “safe word” with Stormy Daniels. It’s just something he blurts out whenever he’s in trouble. 

He’s in trouble now. As absurd as the Russia nonsense is, the details about Trump’s sleazy associates, the porn star, the Playboy playmate and his seedy business practices leave his supporters feeling queasy, even if he hasn’t committed any crimes. 

Instead of joining a fight that will make his most ardent supporters cringe no matter how it comes out, why not choose a battleground where he’s guaranteed a win? If Trump used the military to build the wall — actually build it, not keep telling us he’s going to build it — the Democrats will go mad. 

They’ll hold impeachment hearings, file a million lawsuits, produce weeping children reading from phony scripts written by immigrant rights groups — and Trump will win. The public will support Trump overwhelmingly, and the left will be forced to keep reminding voters why they hate Democrats. 

Instead, what he’s doing now absolutely guarantees that the next president will be a Democrat and, given today’s Democratic Party, that president will be Kamala Harris.

Department of Homeland Security Reveals Official Cause of Death for 7-Year Old Guatemalan Girl


Reported By Jack Davis | December 18, 2018 at 9:29am

A 7-year-old Guatemalan girl who tried to enter the U.S. with her father earlier this month died from sepsis shock, according to the Department of Homeland Security. DHS released a statement about her death on its Facebook page.

“After completing a days-long, dangerous journey through remote and barren terrain, the child, who according to the father had not been able to consume water or food for days, began vomiting, went into sepsis shock and after receiving emergency treatment from U.S. Border Patrol Emergency Response Technicians (EMTs), air paramedics and emergency room personnel, died,” the department said Friday.

The statement said that during an “initial screening” after Jakelin Caal Maquin and her father, Nery Gilberto Caal Cuz, were detained on Dec. 6, “the father denied that either he or his daughter were ill. This denial was recorded on Form I-779 signed by the father. At this time, they were offered water and food and had access to restrooms.”

The statement said that the next morning, as a group of detainees was being transported on a bus, “the father advised Border Patrol agents that his child had become sick and was vomiting. Out of an abundance of caution, agents immediately requested that an EMT meet the bus on arrival at the Lordsburg station.”

By the time she arrived at 6:30 a.m. on Dec. 7, “the father notified agents that the child was not breathing. Border Patrol EMTs began medical care and requested an ambulance. At this point her temperature was 105.9 degrees. Agents providing medical care revived the child twice.”

A helicopter flew the girl to Providence Children’s Hospital in El Paso, Texas, but she died there the next morning, the statement said.

“The initial indication from the Providence Hospital is that she passed due to sepsis shock,” the statement said.

The statement closed with a warning to families.

“As we have repeatedly said, traveling north illegally into the United States is extremely dangerous. Drug cartels, human smugglers and the elements pose deadly risks to anyone who attempts to cross the border illegally. Once again, we are begging parents to not put themselves or their children at risk by attempting to enter illegally. Please, we are begging you, present yourselves and your children at a port of entry and seek to enter legally and safely,” it said.

The DHS investigation is not sufficient for lawyers who represent the girl’s family. They have called for an outside probe that “will assess this incident within nationally recognized standards for the arrest and custody of children. The family intends to assist in such an investigation into the cause and circumstances of Jakelin’s death,” according to CNN.

Members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus are also planning to visit the site where she was taken ill, according to WILX-TV.

The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines sepsis as “the body’s extreme response to an infection. It is a life-threatening medical emergency.”

“Sepsis happens when an infection you already have — in your skin, lungs, urinary tract, or somewhere else — triggers a chain reaction throughout your body. Without timely treatment, sepsis can rapidly lead to tissue damage, organ failure, and death,” according to the CDC.

DEMONIC: Look What This ‘Poor Migrant’ Did One Night In The U.S. During His ‘Personal Reign Of Terror’


Written by Wes Walker on December 18, 2018

He was deported in 2014… but ‘somehow’ managed to come back to maim or kill some Americans in 2018. 

While Schumer is fighting like hell to keep the borders open and cities in California and elsewhere are working hard to undermine the work of ICE, keep stories like this one in mind. Because there is a real human cost paid by both of those political ‘open-borders’ agendas. A real cost that our President has chosen to recognize as ‘Angel Families’.

And this punk just added some more families to that unfortunate list. Not that Schumer or Pelosi seem to care about them.

This is the guy that Democrats say isn’t really a meaningful threat to American Citizens. He’s just here for a ‘better life’… or something.

Authorities say 36-year-old Gustavo Garcia of Visalia killed a man and wounded several other people in apparently random shootings that started Sunday. He also robbed a convenience store, carjacked a truck, fired shots at his ex-girlfriend’s house, and finally injured four people in wrong-way car crashes on State Route 65 before he was flung from the car and died Monday morning.

Tulare County Sheriff Mike Bourdreaux says a motive is unclear but may have involved an ended relationship.

He also says Garcia had a long criminal history and was deported from the U.S. in 2014.

Here’s what’s left of the truck he stole at gunpoint:

Watch the News report here:

In attacks on apparently random strangers, Garcia also killed a man at a gas station convenience store, shot and wounded a farmworker in an orchard and a woman at a motel, carjacked other farmworkers and robbed a convenience store at gunpoint, Tulare County Sheriff Mike Boudreaux said.

He also fired shots in the backyard of his ex-girlfriend’s Visalia home as she and her children were inside and may have committed as many as a dozen crimes during a ‘rampage’ that began Sunday afternoon, he said.
Source: DailyMail

Had Garcia STAYED out of the country after being deported, all these people would still be alive and unharmed today. But Democrats are actively making it HARD to keep people like Garcia out. They pull on heartstrings, they use language like ‘temper tantrums’ to belittle the President taking a stand. But what they WON’T do is be held to account for the needless death of Rocky Paul Jones, whose only offense was being in Garcia’s way in a State that neither keeps criminals out, nor turns them in.

But Democrats try to claim WE are the heartless ones?

Oh really? Will a SINGLE Democrat dare show their faces at any of the funerals that would never have been planned if Garcia hadn’t been here in the first place? 

We already know the answer to that question… don’t we? Is there any wonder we’re so fired up about having Trump take a stand over the wall?

‘God Healed Roxli’: Young Girl’s INOPERABLE Brain Tumor Disappears – Can You Say, ‘Christmas Miracle?’


Written by Wes Walker on December 18, 2018

This will bring a little Christmas cheer to even the most cynical humbug. Seeing someone sick with a serious illness is tough enough. Seeing a kid with one is even worse. But when the doctors say nothing can be done? It’s out of your hands. Many people pray — or say they will — in such a situation. They hope for a miracle, but often as not don’t really expect one. But every so often, the impossible happens.

Some may chalk her recovery up to some kind of a rigidly rational explanation. But explanations like those are difficult to produce with a result like the one eleven-year-old Roxli Doss just saw.

Total recovery. On a type of cancer with no known cure.

“The doctors guide us, but really the true guidance that we’re looking for is from God because that’s who we need our help from right now, and we’re really just praying for a miracle,” her father told local station KVUE in August.

Though it was thought to be impossible, the little girl’s tumor has vanished and she is back to doing what she loves — riding horses.

“When I first saw Roxli’s MRI scan, it was actually unbelievable,” Dr. Virginia Harrod with Dell Children’s Medical Center told KVUE. “The tumor is undetectable on the MRI scan, which is really unusual.”

The station reports that doctors double checked her scans just to confirm the results, and there is no sign of the tumor. Still, doctors are watching her closely and she will continue to undergo treatments, such as immunotherapy, as a precaution.
Source: GatewayPundit

She gets to go on being a kid and living her life. You can bet that she’ll have a much greater sense of what a precious gift that life really is.

God’s blessing on her and her family as they get to enjoy another Christmas together when that outcome wasn’t always so certain.

The spiritual and moral bankruptcy of ‘progressive’ Christianity


Reported by Dr. Michael L. Brown – Guest Columnist | Tuesday, December 18, 2018 | http://www.askdrbrown.org/

Michael BrownI pray that someday they see the light, but zealous supporters of “gay Christianity” can have their “progressive” religion. I’ll stick with the Jesus of the Bible – the Jesus who liberates and transforms, the Jesus who doesn’t affirm us in our sin but delivers us out of it.


So-called “progressive” Christians love to bash conservative Christians. They call us dinosaurs. They mock us as outdated fundamentalists. They taunt us as “Bible bashers.” They claim to be the enlightened ones, and they celebrate their departure from the “traditional church.” But the reality is that they are simply following the spirit of the age, swimming with the current cultural tide rather than against it. In the name of conformity to Jesus, they are being conformed to the world. How ironic.

On Saturday night, while working on a major book project at my computer, I noticed a tweet from a “progressive” pastor. I had reached out him to several times before, but always without response. He wrote, quite out of the blue:

“When hopelessly phobic people of faith like @DrMichaelLBrown claim that God is against ‘homosexual practice.’ #ThatsNotAThing”

As soon as I spotted the tweet, I replied:

“Hey John, I’ve reached out to you on several occasions, always without response. Rather than engage in baseless (and silly) name-calling, let’s a have a mature, scripture-based, minister-to-minister dialog. You’re welcome on my show any time. Why not?”

For the record, he still has not replied to my invitations – not once, ever – and I continue to reach out to him. But despite his lack of response, I decided to engage some of his followers. Talk about enlightening!

The first thing that became immediately evident was this. There was virtually no substantive interaction. Instead, there was mockery and insult and misrepresentation, making me wonder out loud, “What’s so scary about the truth?”

It started out of the gate with this pastor maligning me as “hopelessly phobic” (for reaching out to the LGBT community with the truth of the gospel while opposing radical LGBT activism). And, remarkably, while the Bible consistently and categorically opposes homosexual practice (meaning, same-sex relationships and sexual acts) a pastor – yes, a pastor – came against me for standing with God’s Word.

How dare I – how dare you – do such a thing. How dare you agree with Scripture. How dare you affirm that the Lord’s ways are best. That is so 1950s!

Rather than interact with a single thing I said, he later posted:

“Michael thinks LGBTQ people can NOT be LGBTQ. Michael thinks you can pray the gay away. Michael preys upon already marginalized people. Michael thinks other people’s bedrooms and body parts are his business. Don’t be like Michael.”

'Progressive' ChristianityNow, you would think it would trouble a pastor to post blatant falsehoods about other people, but when you’re “progressive,” you’re morally superior, which means you are the judge of the motives of others. You determine what they really think and believe, despite what they say and do. In the name of not judging, you are now the judge!

Of course, the issue is not what “Michael” thinks but what God says. That’s why, later in the night, I posted this:

“To all professing LGBT Christians and their allies: Please give me just ONE explicit verse in the Bible where God sanctions same-sex relationships. Just one. You know already there are clear verses saying the opposite.”

Not a single one gave me a single supporting verse. How telling!

In direct response to the pastor’s tweet, I wrote:

“John, by God’s grace, I know MANY ex-gays and lesbians who are so thankful for new life in Jesus. And I continue to have fruitful ministry around the world, NOT focused on LGBT issues. I have simply responded to biblical deception and radical activism. You have accommodated sin.”

How did he reply? He tweeted:

“No you don’t. You know people who you and others have badgered into modifying their behavior to stay in community. You’ve squandered your time here and you’ve caused irreparable harm to already marginalized people. That’s on you.”

Are you detecting a pattern? This “progressive” pastor has the right to misrepresent me publicly because, well, he’s progressive, so it must be right. He has the right to put words into my mouth (like “pray away the gay”) and make inane and ridiculous comments (such as the bedroom remarks), no matter how farfetched they may be.

But since, in his eyes, I’m a Bible-bashing religious fundamentalist and he’s a liberated progressive, his perceptions are the truth. Who cares about facts? Who cares about Scripture?

Not only so, he claims the right to deny the very real stories of thousands of ex-gays, people who, with God’s help, have left homosexual practice and gay identity behind. They do not exist. They cannot exist. If they did, it would cause his house of sand to collapse in an instant. It would mean that Jesus can change anyone.

So, in the name of standing with the marginalized, he casts out and mocks the most marginalized group in America today: ex-gays. This is the heart of Jesus? This is pursuing righteousness? This is practicing mercy?

The “progressives” also fail to realize that they are joining forces with those who want to take away rights, who want to silence Christians, who want to impose their ideology, who want to penalize all dissenters. (Yes, I’m talking about LGBT extremists and their allies, sometimes known as the pink mafia for a reason. I and many others have documented this steadily for years.)

And when it comes to fealty to the Word of God, the Twitter interaction proved extremely interesting.

Queen James BibleA professing gay Christian tweeted with joy about his upcoming wedding to his partner, telling me the Scripture he would use at the event. When I came back to him with other scriptures about same-sex relationships, he told me plainly that the Bible was not his final authority and that God was bigger than a book. Fascinating!

When I challenged a zealous supporter of “gay Christianity” when she simply repeated the standard, LGBT theological talking points, she told me I was obviously not a scholar. How dare I set the record straight. How dare I share the fruit of decades of serious academic study of the Scriptures (in their cultural context and in their original languages, with due attention to the Spirit’s intent). How dare I rely on the best research by the best scholars. How dare I burst her bubble.

Of course, when I asked her for a verse to back her points, she had none. When I presented her with verses that rebutted hers, she had vacuous talking points and nothing more.

But she was progressive, and I was not. Of course she was right. Of course I was not a scholar.

What I experienced over the course of hours of interaction with scores of different people was a steady tide of condescending, name-calling, biblically-bankrupt, and morally-hypocritical rhetoric, and all of it devoid of a single substantive response.

So, these folks can have their “progressive” religion (although I pray they’ll see the light). I’ll stay with the Jesus of the Bible, the Jesus who liberates and transforms, the Jesus who doesn’t affirm us in our sin but delivers us out of it.

He was good enough for the last 2,000 years. He’ll be good enough for eternity.

Despite destruction, community Christmas on the way


Reported by Steve Jordahl (OneNewsNow.com) | Monday December 17, 2018

Paradise homes burntThe town of Paradise lies in ruins among the fire-scarred foothills of the Sierra Nevada in Northern California – but a Christmas miracle could be rising from the ashes.

The good folk of Paradise, California, have likely tamped down their expectations for this Christmas season. With most of the homes destroyed by the Camp Fire just last month, it’s going to be a scramble to get family, food, and presents together for a celebration. But Pastor Tim Bolin of Paradise Alliance Church says there’s at least one thing that’s coming together for the community.

“We’re going to do a Christmas Eve service in our building,” he tells OneNewsNow. “Our electric company just hooked our power up today, and our water company hooked us up today so we can get the main auditorium cleaned out.”

Despite destruction, community Christmas on the way

With a theme of “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” the event “could be a launching point of hope and of Christmas and of Christ and the gospel,” says the pastor.

So on this one day, perhaps for just a few hours, the community can think about “Joy to the World” and “O Holy Night” and maybe even “Jingle Bells” – instead of how they’ve seen fire and they’ve seen rain.

“Our church holds about 1,200 people, and with the whole community and all the churches involved we think we’re going to need three services,”Bolin reports. “We’re going to make a path to our church from the valley so people can come up and go to service with us that day.”

Samaritan’s Purse will be on hand to serve about 3,500 dinner boxes for people who attend – a Christmas blessing that will truly allow them to be home for Christmas.

 

 

 

Attorney: Ruckus over citizenship question really about Trump


Reported by J.M. Phelps (OneNewsNow.com) } | Monday December 17, 2018

census worker

A U.S. census analyst and experienced attorney questions whether President Donald Trump is being treated fairly on an issue concerning a citizenship question for the 2020 census.

As a first of its kind, a field test for the 2020 census form will be administered to thousands of U.S. households next year – and it will include this question: “Is this person a citizen of the United States?” As OneNewsNow reported earlier, it’s a question that has not been void of controversy.

Liberals consider it intrusive to ask a person’s citizenship as part of the census because … (Select up to 2)
It’s not really that important to liberalsIt threatens illegals (‘potential voters’)Trump is in the White HouseThey’re already a ‘citizen’ by virtue of being here

However, Justin Torres suggests the ploy to contest the question is much ado about nothing. The D.C.-based attorney at Schaerr | Jaffe LLP explains to OneNewsNow that, in fact, the “citizenship question has been asked in one form or another for a long time,” including the 19th century, and “every census through the 20th century – up through 1950.”

The question has also been asked every year for at least the past 15 years in the American Community Survey, according to Torres, who describes it as “a survey that the Census Bureau sends out to a sampling of American households to get demographic and other data from them.”

Torres

While the attorney agrees there have always been accusations about the inaccuracy of responses to a citizenship question, he points out there is “a fairly long vetted history of asking this question and no evidence that has been brought forward, besides speculation, that people are going to refuse to answer the question – or answer it incorrectly.”

“The minute you get beyond a simple counting of noses and you start asking for data,” Torres explains, “there is no fail-proof method of ensuring that the data is accurate.” Consequently, the census analyst says, results are compared to other forms of data that are available, including Social Security registrations, veterans’ records, and “things like that which help determine whether we have what seems like a reasonable answer here or not.”

Addressing what Torres describes as a “broader phenomenon” is the use of administrative law.

“[That’s] the law that deals with [government] agencies,” he says, pointing specifically to “the judicial review of federal and state agency action to determine if there’s a reasonable non-arbitrary process that [produces] agency decisions.”

“One of the fundamental principles of administrative law,” Torres explains, “is that courts will defer to the agency action when there is a reasoned explanation for that action.” This does not mean a court must “decide whether the action is wise or prudent or just,” but he says the court simply “has to have a reasoned explanation.”

However, over the past two years, he reports, “it turns out that some of those rules may have a sort of ‘Trump-only exception’ where courts are willing to be much more intrusive in looking into the decision-making processes of a federal agency” particularly when “they work for Donald Trump.” And this, he adds, can be seen in a variety of areas, including environmental litigation and “all of the litigation relating to immigration.”

Torres describes it as “a very unusual and not an entirely understandable impulse that these courts seem to have” when applying the administrative law.

“It raises the question of whether Donald Trump is being treated the way presidents have been treated throughout modern American history,”Torres emphasizes – concluding that “there’s a strong argument that [President Trump is] not being treated the same way” as he pursues inclusion of the citizenship question in the 2020 census.”

After judge’s ruling against Obamacare, what happens now?


Associated Press | Monday December 17, 2018

WASHINGTON (December 17, 2018) — A federal judge’s ruling would, if upheld, wipe away the entire Affordable Care Act, the health care overhaul championed by President Barack Obama and twice sustained by the Supreme Court.

Judge Reed O’Connor’s opinion was issued late Friday and supporters of the law vowed to appeal and take other steps to preserve health benefits in the law sometimes called Obamacare. (See weekend story)

Some questions and answers about O’Connor’s ruling:

WHAT IS THE IMMEDIATE EFFECT OF THE RULING FOR AMERICANS COVERED UNDER THE ACA?

In a word, nothing. Although O’Connor said the entire law must fall, he did not grant a request from its opponents to have his ruling take effect immediately. That means that all the law’s provisions remain in effect. The federal Health and Human Services Department put out a statement making clear that it “will continue administering and enforcing all aspects of the ACA as it had before the court issued its decision.”

HOW WOULD THE AVERAGE PERSON’S HEALTH CARE BE AFFECTED IF THE RULING IS UPHELD?

The impact would go well beyond the more than 20 million people who are directly covered through the Obama health law.

More than 170 million Americans are covered by employers and they could lose no-cost preventive care, from screening tests like colonoscopies to birth control for women. Employers would no longer be required to keep young adult children of their workers covered up to age 26. Gone would be limits on annual out-of-pocket expenses, which provide greater financial protection for people with job-based coverage. Another kind of limit — lifetime caps on what insurance will pay for medical bills — could stage a comeback.

Medicare would be affected because the ACA expanded no-cost coverage of preventive services and reduced the bills of seniors with high prescription drug costs. Program finances would also take a hit. Medicaid, the federal-state program for low-income people, was expanded under the ACA. So about 12 million people who gained coverage could be left uninsured. Efforts to counter the opioid epidemic would be dealt a severe blow, since Medicaid has become a mainstay for treatment.

HealthCare.gov and state insurance markets offering subsidized private insurance would disappear, potentially leaving 10 million people or more uninsured.

WHAT WAS THE JUDGE’S REASONING IN STRIKING DOWN THE ENTIRE HEALTH CARE LAW?

A key part of the Affordable Care Act that Obama signed into law in 2010 was the provision requiring people to have health insurance or pay a penalty if they refused. The Supreme Court upheld this individual mandate in 2012. Congress reduced that penalty to zero as part of the tax legislation it passed and President Donald Trump signed in 2017. That means that beginning in January, there no longer will be a penalty for not purchasing health insurance.

O’Connor agreed with Texas and other Republican-led states that challenged the law that the elimination of the penalty rendered the requirement to have health insurance unconstitutional. In a crucial step in his logic, O’Connor then held that because the individual mandate is so important to the overall law, the whole thing can no longer stand. The legal explanation is that O’Connor found that the mandate could not be severed from the rest of the law, meaning he struck it down in its entirety.

HOW LIKELY IS IT THAT HIGHER COURTS WILL AGREE WITH O’CONNOR’S RULING?

Even some opponents of the health care law, including the Wall Street Journal editorial page, have said O’Connor went too far and predicted he would be reversed in the appeals process. Congress did indeed render the individual mandate unenforceable when it reduced the penalty for not complying to zero. But that very same Congress left the rest of the law intact. What’s more, Republican efforts to repeal the ACA failed in the same Congress. In addition, even if the federal appeals court that oversees Texas were to agree with O’Connor, it seems improbable at best that Chief Justice John Roberts, who twice wrote opinions upholding the law — in 2012 and 2015, would now strike it down.

WHO WILL APPEAL THE RULING, AND HOW LONG MIGHT THE PROCESS TAKE?

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, the leader of a coalition of states defending the law in court, already has promised to appeal. The process will take months at a minimum, even with the states pressing for a speedy resolution because of the uncertainty O’Connor’s ruling creates and the potential effects on the insurance markets.

If the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit reverses O’Connor, chances that the Supreme Court would hear the case are slim. If the 5th Circuit agrees with O’Connor, high court review becomes very likely because the justices almost always weigh in when a federal law has been struck down. But even then, the Supreme Court wouldn’t hear the case before the fall of 2019 at the earliest, with a decision unlikely before the spring of 2020 — in the midst of the presidential and congressional campaigns.

America’s newest Underground Railroad from injustice?


Friday, December 14, 2018 | Bryan Fischer – Guest Columnist | http://on.fb.me/1pFPvvd

Bryan FischerGiven the direction our society is headed, and its willingness to sacrifice children to the god of sexual perversion, Lisa Miller may not be the last mother who needs a modern version of the Underground Railroad to deliver her child from evil.


Philip Zodhiates went to prison last week, convicted of helping a mother use a modern version of the Underground Railroad to protect her child from the clear and present danger of being raised in a homosexual household.  If judges would follow the laws the voters had instituted instead of imposing their viewpoints, Zodhiates would be free and another man would have never served three years in prison.

Here is a quick summary of the history of this case (related articles). Lisa Miller is the mom in question. She grew up in a sexually and emotionally abusive household, where a rancorous divorce between her parents left her shaken and insecure. Her own mother poisoned her mind against males, by repeatedly telling her that “all men are evil.”

Lisa entered into a troubled marriage at a young age, a marriage that didn’t last and left her seeking therapy for depression and suicidal thoughts. Her therapists—on at least two occasions—suggested that she experiment with lesbianism. And so she did, even though, in her own words, “I did not feel sexually attracted to women.”

She eventually hooked up with Janet Jenkins at an AA meeting, and though they lived in Virginia where such a relationship had exactly zero legal status, they entered into a civil union in the state of Vermont in 2000.

Lisa conceived a child through artificial insemination in Virginia (according to Lisa, Janet did not even accompany her to the fertility specialist for the procedure), where Isabella was born in 2002. Again, mind you, in a state where civil unions had no legal recognition whatsoever.

Four months after the birth of Lisa’s daughter, the lesbian couple moved to Vermont.

Despite repeated appeals from Lisa, Janet refused to consider formally adopting Isabella. During their time in Vermont, Lisa converted to Christianity, and at the same time, Janet became increasingly abusive, both emotionally and physically. Ms. Jenkins had an explosive temper, and posted pictures of naked women on the screensaver of the household computer to boot.

Lisa left the relationship and eventually the state of Vermont when Isabella was 17 months old, moving back to Virginia for her own protection and the protection of her child. There, Lisa continued to grow in her Christian faith and left the lesbian lifestyle altogether. She filed to dissolve her civil union with Ms. Jenkins in 2003.

The civil union was dissolved in Vermont, and even though Lisa lived in Virginia where such orders had no legal force, she reluctantly and only under compulsion complied with an order from the Rutland County Family Court to allow Isabella to visit Ms. Jenkins in Vermont.

The Vermont judge granted parental status to Ms. Jenkins in violation of Vermont state law, which grants parental rights only to adults who have a connection to the child either through biology or adoption. Ms. Jenkins, of course, met neither standard.

It’s worthy of note that in the four years between the time Lisa left the relationship, taking Isabella with her, and the court-ordered visitations began, Ms. Jenkins did not once, during all that time, bother to phone Isabella, or send her a note, a card, or so much as a birthday or Christmas present. Not once in four years.

Lisa was deeply disturbed, as any mother would be, by what happened to her precious daughter when she spent weekends with Ms. Jenkins.

When Isabella would return from her weekends with Ms. Jenkins, she experienced severe reactions. She suffered from nightmares and bedwetting. She was filled with fear that Ms. Jenkins would make good on her threat to take her away from the only mother she had ever known. She tried to harm herself and showed signs of sexual molestation, touching herself inappropriately and sexually.

Lisa pleaded with the Vermont judge to allow only supervised visitations, but the judge flatly refused even to consider the evidence of Isabella’s violent reactions.

Lisa, at that point, had no choice as a loving parent but to stop complying with the court ordered visitations for the safety of her own daughter. She would have been morally and in fact criminally negligent had she allowed her daughter to go even one more time into an environment that was an obvious threat to her emotional, physical and sexual health.

To make the cheese even more binding, the Virginia judge before whom Lisa appeared ruled in 2004 that Lisa “solely has the legal rights, privileges, duties and obligations as parent hereby established for the health, safety and welfare” of Isabella. No other person, wrote the judge, “has any claims of parentage or visitation rights.”

Although the Supreme Court’s Obergefell decision of 2015 radically altered the marital landscape, Virginia had enacted a marriage affirmation act on July 1, 2004, which was absolutely unambiguous. It not only prohibited recognition of civil unions in Virginia “between persons of the same sex purporting to bestow the privileges or obligations of marriage,” it declared flatly that civil unions performed in other states “shall be void in all respects in Virginia, and any contractual rights created thereby shall be void and unenforceable.”

Sadly, not only did the Vermont judge break Vermont law by awarding parental status to Ms. Jenkins, the Virginia Supreme Court broke its own law by overruling the lower judge in Virginia and granting the judge in Vermont the unprecedented right to dictate family structure to a resident of the state of Virginia. In so doing, the Virginia court not only broke Virginia state law but federal law as well, since the Defense of Marriage Act, the law in effect at the time, was passed precisely for the purpose of preventing one state from dictating family policy to another.

So with multiple judges conspiring to break the laws of their own respective states and the laws of the United States, the Vermont judge, angry with Lisa for protecting her daughter from the abusive treatment she was receiving from Ms. Jenkins, granted sole custody to Ms. Jenkins and ordered Lisa to turn her over full-time to her abuser on January 1, 2010.

Lisa and her daughter disappeared in September of 2009, and now are evidently living in Central America.

Kenneth Miller (no relation), the leader of a Beachy Amish Mennonite church in Virginia, was prosecuted, convicted, and incarcerated for his alleged part in making travel arrangements for mother and daughter to Canada and from Canada to Managua, Nicaragua.

Image result for disbelief gif

However, even the New York Times admits that Lisa was still legally free to make a flight at that time and that a warrant for her arrest was not issued until months later. So this pastor went to prison for three years for helping a mother plan a perfectly legal trip.

Now a second man, Philip Zodhiates, has been convicted of “an international kidnapping” for his alleged role in helping Lisa’s daughter escape the prison house of lesbianism and make it to safety in Central America.

My sympathies are entirely with the now Christian mother who repented of her homosexuality and also with the two Christian men in this circumstance.

The left came unhinged and accused me of supporting kidnapping raids on homosexual households to snatch children from their beds. I, of course, have suggested no such thing.

In fact, I was trying to prevent a kidnapping, a judicial kidnapping orchestrated by a judge marching in goose step with Big Gay and seeking to snatch a vulnerable young child from the only mother she had ever known and forcing the child into a same-sex household where there was clear evidence of a train of life-scarring abuse.

I submit that it is not Lisa Miller nor these two men who have broken the law. The judges in Vermont and Virginia are the true lawbreakers here. They issued rulings at variance not only with the laws of their respective states but also with the laws of nature and nature’s God.

An illegal order has no force of law, either legally or morally. You can check with Martin Luther King, Jr. on that one.

I do not see that this mother had any other option in exercising her unalienable, God-given right to direct the upbringing of her daughter. What loving parent would consent to such an outrageous, unethical, immoral and flatly illegal order, even if issued by a tyrant wearing a black robe? If we are a nation of laws, then this judge’s order had no validity and Lisa was under no moral obligation to obey it, particularly when to do so would have meant the sacrifice of her daughter’s sexual innocence and safety.

Peter famously said, in Acts 5:29, “We must obey God rather than men.” If a mother and those who care for her are faced with a choice between doing what man commands them to do and what God directs them to do, they must follow the voice of God, especially when vulnerable young children are the ones at risk.

If there was ever a time for a parent and pastor to obey God rather than man, this was it.

This is not the only instance where similar reprehensible things have happened. A caller to my radio program told my listening audience about the sad saga of a personal friend of his. This woman’s husband left her to enter into the homosexual lifestyle after conceiving a child with her.

After the divorce, the ex-husband demanded custody, even though he had moved to a different state with his homosexual lover, and was awarded it by a judge on the grounds that the child would be better off in a home with two parents, even of the same sex, than in a household with just one. This mother will now only rarely even be able to see her child because of the distance and cost of travel.

Given the direction our society is headed, and its willingness to sacrifice children to the god of sexual perversion, Lisa Miller may not be the last mother who needs a modern version of the Underground Railroad to deliver her child from evil.

Fewer link Jesus to Christmas but a detective is on the case


Reported by Chris Woodward (OneNewsNow.com) | Friday, December 14, 2018

A survey shows a noticeable decline in Americans linking Christmas to the birth of Jesus, and a Christian apologist predicts that number will keep dropping.

According to Lifeway Research, 65 percent of Americans say Christmas should be more about Jesus. While that may figure may seem full of Christmas cheer, LifeWay found 79 percent of Americans felt that way just four years ago.

“We are in a rapid decline of connecting Jesus to the holiday altogether,” warns J. Warner Wallace, a former cold-case detective, and former atheist, who now writes and speaks about Christianity.

Speaking on American Family Radio, Wallace said Christianity’s claims — including the birth of a Messiah — are not a matter of “personal opinion” but a debate over facts and truths.

“It’s either objectively true or objectively false,” he said.

It’s not in dispute that remembering Christ’s birth came before Santa Claus and Rudolph, with some historians tracing the first recorded Christmas to 336 A.D.   There is dispute among church historians — no surprise — over when and why the Church began celebrating Christ’s birth. One view is that the early Church wanted to steer believers from raucous pagan festivals, such as Saturnalia, a late-December party that was celebrated by the Romans.

While the New Testament is the first source many people read to study Christ’s coming, said Wallace, the Old Testament prophecies should be studied, too.

“There’s great prophecy that doesn’t just describe the birth of the Messiah, but the life of the Messiah, (and) the death of the Messiah,” he said. “There’s so much in biblical prophecy that we could point to.”

There is also a persistent argument that the early Church simply crafted a story to fit the prophecies made hundreds of years earlier, and Wallace told the radio program that is a claim he made as an atheist.

“But as I examined the New Testament to discover if, in fact, the writings of the New Testament were historically reliable,” he explained, “you’re going to have a hard time denying that they were written early, denying that they aren’t corroborated by several forms of internal and external evidence.”

There is also the question of truth: what is the motive for lying?

The detective said he naturally wrestled with that issue  — motive — as a seasoned detective, eventually concluding there is no evidence of lying by the authors.

“So I think what you have,”he says, “is good prophecy that points to something, and a reliable record that says it happened.”

Remains of Two Migrants Discovered in Texas — 80 Miles from Border

Sheriff’s deputies in a Texas county located 80 miles from the U.S.-Mexico Border reported the recovery of two migrants’ remains who apparently died attempting to circumvent the Falfurrias Border Patrol Checkpoint.

On December 11, a Brooks County Sheriff’s Office dispatcher received notice for the discovery of skeletal remains presumed to be those of a deceased migrant. The dispatcher sent Training Officer Ben Gomez to the scene to meet with a ranch hand who discovered the remains and Border Patrol agents, according to Brooks County Sheriff’ Benny Martinez.

The ranch is located west of the Falfurrias Border Patrol Checkpoint located on U.S. Highway 281, about 80 miles from the Mexican border. Human smugglers frequently use this area to drop off their “cargo” and force them on a lengthy march that has led to the deaths for at least 48 migrants in Brooks County this year.

Gomez met up with the Border Patrol agents who escorted him 7.6 miles into the ranch where workers found the remains. Only the migrant’s skull and a small piece of bone were present. The remainder could not be found after they were presumably hauled away by animals.

The remains were transported to the sheriff’s office where a local justice of the peace made the formal death declaration. The remains will be transported to the Webb County Medical Examiners Office in Laredo, Texas, where officials will attempt to identify and make family notifications. No documents were found at the scene.

On December 1, Brooks County dispatchers sent Deputy Brenda Ligas to another ranch in the same part of the county following a report that a ranch hand found another set of skeletal remains, local officials reported earlier this week. Scattered remains were reportedly found while a hand was discing a field.

Officials recovered a skull and mandible, along with numerous other bones. A search of the area resulted in the recovery of several articles of clothing and two Honduran passports which could help identify the deceased migrant. Both bore the name Felix Antonio Godoy Ramos, a 43-year-old Honduran national. It is not known if these passports actually belonged to the deceased migrant.

The remains were transported to the Webb County Medical Examiner, who will attempt to verify identity.

The remains discovered this month bring the death toll in this single Texas county to at least 48, local officials reported.

In 2018, at least 226 migrants died in Texas while crossing the U.S. border or during smuggling into the U.S. interior, according to the International Organization for Migrants’ Missing Migrant Project. Nationally, that number climbed to at least 373 in the same period. An exact number is not known because many deceased migrants are never found.

The number of reported deaths this year rose by nearly nine percent over 2017.

Thought Police: Public University’s Rules Now Prohibit Offensive Facial Expressions


Reported By Benjamin Arie | December 12, 2018 at 5:53pm

When George Orwell famously wrote about a dystopian future where your every thought is monitored, he shouldn’t have set it in Great Britain. It would have been much more accurate had he instead written about American college campuses. We’ve known about the alarming trend of coddling and control at colleges for a while, but it may be getting worse. At the publicly-funded University of Montana Western, college administrators seem to be doing their best Big Brother impressions.

That university recently published a policy which threatens punitive action against students for making — wait for it — “mean facial expressions.”

“While discussions may become heated and passionate, they should never become mean, nasty or vindictive in spoken or printed or emailed words, facial expressions, or gestures,” the official Civility Standards at Montana Western declare.

Who decides what a mean facial expression looks like? Nobody seems to know.

“The policy says students must promote an atmosphere of civility and that their discussions should never become ‘mean, nasty, or vindictive,’ but those are all entirely subjective terms that could be applied to punish constitutionally protected speech,” Laura Beltz of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education explained to Campus Reform.

She’s right: People use a variety of facial expressions when upset, flustered or merely just excited. If you roll your eyes or raise your eyebrows, is your academic career over?

“If it is the responsibility for students to uphold these standards, it follows that they may be punished for perceived violations of these standards, in this case, for failing to promote civility or for having a discussion that is deemed mean, nasty, or vindictive,” Beltz pointed out.

Image result for you cannot be serious gif

Being punished for making a face seems like something that belongs in kindergarten, not a major university attended by serious young adults. But that certainly seems to be how the policy is written.

“According to the policy, violations of the Student Code of Conduct can result in suspension of a student’s technology account, suspension, or in extreme cases, expulsion,” explained Campus Reform.

“Even if the policy isn’t actually applied that way, students who read the policy and see how vague it is are likely to self-censor instead of taking the risk that something they say will be seen as mean, nasty, vindictive, or not civil,” Beltz added. “This sort of chilling effect on protected speech is unacceptable at a public university like Montana Western.”

If someone doesn’t think these kinds of policies could be used to infringe on free speech and inspire proverbial witch hunts, they probably haven’t been paying attention.

We’ve already seen hysterical reactions to imagined “hate crimes,” which more often than not turn out to be wildly exaggerated or blatant hoaxes. And as everyone from the Duke lacrosse team to Rolling Stone magazine found out, due process can be quickly tossed aside when there’s a social justice crusade.

There have also been countless cases of free speech infringement throughout American campuses, and students with conservative views are often the ones being silenced.

Everyone agrees that civility is important. But by trying to monitor and enforce every element of human interaction and speech, down to which facial expressions somebody uses during a debate, campus busy-bodies have lost the plot.

The real world is not a safe space free of triggering facial expressions and terrifying eye rolls, and it’s ridiculous to pretend that this is what increasingly irrelevant universities need. Let’s try more freedom of speech, not less.

An ethics lesson for USA Today’s ‘queer’ bullies


Commentary by Michelle Malkin | Guest Columnist

Wednesday, December 12, 2018 http://michellemalkin.com/

Michelle Malkin


This week, I did something that USA Today‘s executive leadership apparently hadn’t done lately: I read the newspaper’s “principles of ethical conduct for newsrooms.”

It’s pretty highfalutin. The media manifesto of virtue, posted online, applies to all employees “working with any news platform, including newspapers, websites, mobile devices, video, social media channels and live story events.” Whether writing online or covering breaking developments, USA Today‘s journalists are supposedly committed to:

  • Seeking and reporting the truth in a truthful way.
  • Serving the public interest.
  • Exercising fair play.
  • Acting with integrity.

Kyler Murray (Heisman winner 2018)Now, let’s compare the lofty rhetoric with low-blow reality. On Sunday, 21-year-old University of Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray (right) won the Heisman Trophy. He gave a gracious, emotional speech that celebrated his faith in God, respect for his fellow athletes, love of family, lifelong work ethic and team spirit.

“I’ve worked my whole life to fulfill my goals, but at the same time, I know there’s a higher power looking down on me. He enables me to do all things. For that I’m grateful – for the many blessings that God has blessed me with,” Murray humbly told reporters.

But one reporter wasn’t interested in covering the actual news of the Heisman winner’s triumph. He was interested in sabotaging it. Within hours of the press conference, USA Today sports writer Scott Gleeson penned an article attacking Murray for posting “tweets using an anti-gay slur.” Murray and family awoke Monday morning to a barrage of character smears slamming his “homophobic” posts from six years ago – when Murray was 14 or 15 years old and jokingly called his friends “queer.” Google is now clogged with wall-to-wall coverage of his teenage antics from CNN to The Today Show to every sports outlet and his hometown Oklahoma newspaper.

Gleeson’s hit piece reeks of deceptive vigilantism, not journalism. After noting that Murray had a “Saturday to remember,” Gleeson wrote that “the Oklahoma quarterback’s memorable night also helped resurface social media’s memory of several homophobic tweets more than six years old.”

Who “resurfaced social media’s memory?” Why, it was Gleeson himself! By creating an illusion that Murray’s schoolboy tweets were the subject of any scrutiny and outrage other than Gleeson’s own, USA Today gave us a shining example of the manufacturing of fake news. Ain’t misleading passive voice grand?

Indeed, Gleeson’s own biography is one of a social justice advocate dedicated to identity politics propaganda. “My enterprise and human interest work on the LGBT movement in sports made me an APSE award finalist in 2016 and a USBWA award winner in 2017,” Gleeson boasts. Was he aiming for another award with his ambush of Murray? Gleeson certainly got his new scalp and paraded it prominently, with aiding and abetting by USA Today‘s silent, AWOL editors. Within hours of publication, Murray had apologized.

Gleeson’s new headline blared: “Kyler Murray apologizes for homophobic tweets that resurfaced after he won Heisman Trophy.”

On Tuesday, I wrote to USA Today‘s editor in chief Nicole Carroll and executive editor for news Jeff Taylor with the following questions:

  • How does Gleeson’s article comport with USA Today‘s stated principles of ethical conduct for newsrooms?
  • Specifically, how did the piece “serve the public interest,” “exercise fair play,” exhibit “fairness in relations with people unaccustomed to dealing with news media,” observe “standards of decency” and demonstrate “integrity”?
  • And have there been any executive leadership discussions about the piece since its publication and widespread public backlash?

The editors have not responded yet. In the meantime, I have more questions.

How does lying in wait in for unknown months or years (when Gleeson could have “resurfaced” the old tweets at any time) and publishing a smear in the middle of the night before giving Murray a chance to respond comport with the newspaper’s promises that:

  • “We will be honest in the way we gather, report and present news — with relevancy, persistence, context, thoroughness, balance, and fairness in mind.
  • “We will seek to gain understanding of the communities, individuals and issues we cover to provide an informed account of activities.
  • “We will uphold First Amendment principles to serve the democratic process.
  • “We will reflect and encourage understanding of the diverse segments of our community.
  • “We will provide editorial and community leadership.
  • “We will treat people with respect and compassion.
  • “We will strive to include all sides relevant to a story.
  • “We will give particular attention to fairness in relations with people unaccustomed to dealing with the news media.
  • “We will act honorably and ethically in dealing with news sources, the public and our colleagues.
  • “We will observe standards of decency.”

Will the editors respond publicly to criticism and address readers and employees so that their actions match these words?

  • “We will explain to audiences our journalistic processes to promote transparency and engagement.
  • “We will correct errors promptly.
  • “We will take responsibility for our decisions and consider the possible consequences of our actions.”

Tick tock.

Outrageous: Caravanners Offer To Return Home If US Pays Them $50,000 Each


Reported By Benjamin Arie | December 12, 2018 at 5:13pm

We’ve all seen the eye-opening images: Hordes of people from migrant “caravans” have moved from Central America into Mexico, pushing past border checkpoints and clashing with officials. Thousands of those migrants are now near the U.S.-Mexico border, creating chaos in places like Tijuana. All the while, the left has insisted that they’re merely fleeing oppression and want “a better life,” which America is apparently obliged to give them.

But a shocking update from those same migrants is casting doubt on the liberal narrative. The caravans are now making demands from the United States, and it’s almost impossible to see it as anything other than mass extortion. 

According to The San Diego Union Tribune, caravan members marched on the U.S. consulate in Tijuana and demanded that either they be granted entry across the border, or be paid tens of thousands of dollars.

“Two groups of Central American migrants made separate marches on the U.S. Consulate in Tijuana Tuesday, demanding that they be processed through the asylum system more quickly and in greater numbers,” the newspaper reported.

They’re also demanding “that deportations be halted and that President Trump either let them into the country or pay them $50,000 each to go home.”

Yes, that’s $50,000 per immigrant.

Image result for laughing gif

To put that in perspective, the average yearly wage in Mexico is about $15,000 dollars. In Honduras, it’s even less.

Where did that absurd number come from? Caravan organizers declared that it was essentially reparations for what the United States “stole” from Central America.

“It may seem like a lot of money to you,” declared organizer Alfonso Guerrero Ulloa. “But it is a small sum compared to everything the United States has stolen from Honduras.”

It’s worth remembering that the Mexican government previously offered working visas and at least basic jobs for the migrants. The vast majority refused, and chose instead to try to illegally cross border fences — often waving the flags of their home countries. The hostile, almost ransom-like insistence on being paid over three times Mexico’s average annual wage seems to be completely opposite of past claims that their trek was about escaping crime and poverty back home. It looks now like a get-rich-quick scheme that fell apart.

And if the group’s demands are not met? Well, it isn’t clear what they’ll do.

“They gave the U.S. Consulate 72 hours to respond. They said they had not decided what to do if their demands were not met,” stated The San Diego Union Tribune.

“I don’t know, we will decide as a group,” Ulloa said.

Image result for mockingly i'm afraid now gif

Some caravan members essentially admitted that they expected to cut to the front of the immigration line and enter the United States no questions asked, a delusion that was abruptly halted by President Trump.

A lot of people are leaving because there is no solution here,” said Douglas Matute in Tijuana. “We thought they would let us in. But Trump sent the military instead of social workers.”

In one of the most bizarre twists, caravan members blamed their situation on Americans “intervening” in Central America. Their solution? Demand that President Donald Trump intervene in Central America.

“[F]amilies, women and children who have fled our countries continue to suffer and the civil society of Tijuana continue to be forces to confront this humanitarian crisis, a refugee crisis caused in great part by decades of U.S. intervention in Central America,” one of the letters delivered to the American consulate insisted.

Yet intervention is exactly what the groups say they want.

“[T]he majority of [caravan members] are young men who are fleeing from poverty, insecurity and political repression under the dictatorship of Juan Orlando Hernandez,” lamented a second letter, according to The Tribune.

“Orlando Hernandez is the president of Honduras. Their letter also asked the U.S. to remove Orlando Hernandez from office,” the San Diego newspaper explained.

Well, so much for that narrative.

Dems AWOL as Last Week Marked 153 Years Since the GOP Outlawed Slavery Forever


Reported By Cillian Zeal | December 10, 2018 at 9:03am

URL of the original posting site: https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/dems-awol-last-week-marked-153-years-since-gop-outlawed-slavery-forever/

The Lincoln Memorial

It’s a fairly short piece of law, too: “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction,” the amendment reads.

It also gives Congress the power to enforce the law.

Now, the traditional anniversary of the end of slavery, at least in the African-American community, is Juneteenth — June 19, the date in 1865 when Maj. Gen. Gordon Granger of the Union Army read the Emancipation Proclamation to slaves in Galveston, Texas. However, when the 13th Amendment celebrated its 153rd birthday on Dec. 6, it didn’t get a whole lot of mention. And what definitely didn’t get mentioned is that it wouldn’t exist if Democrats had their way.

As Ourdocuments.gov notes, “The 13th Amendment was passed at the end of the Civil War before the Southern states had been restored to the Union and should have easily passed the Congress.

“Although the Senate passed it in April 1864, the House did not. At that point, Lincoln took an active role to ensure passage through Congress. He insisted that passage of the 13th Amendment be added to the Republican Party platform for the upcoming presidential elections. His efforts met with success when the House passed the bill in January 1865 with a vote of 119–56.”

Indeed, it had to be ratified before the Southern states rejoined the union. The reason is that the Democrats considered Dixie their own personal fiefdom up until the late 1960s. Jim Crow laws, segregated schools, the KKK, massive resistance, eugenics — all of these things were brought to you by the Democratic Party and vigorously fought by the Republicans.

But, you say, what about the “great switch?” That’s when the Democrats supposedly became the party of racial justice, all put into motion to the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Well, yes, about that. The bill couldn’t have passed without Republican support.

Even the U.K. Guardian, of all sources, notes that “80 percent of Republicans in the House and Senate voted for the bill. Less than 70 percent of Democrats did. Indeed, Minority Leader Republican Everett Dirksen led the fight to end the filibuster. Meanwhile, Democrats such as Richard Russell of Georgia and Strom Thurmond of South Carolina tried as hard as they could to sustain a filibuster.”

The vote was taken during the “Solid South” era, where almost every elected official below the Mason-Dixon was a Democrat. Only eight out of 102 representatives from the former Confederacy voted for the bill in the House and one of 22 voted for it in the Senate.

Yet, the fact that the South is now pretty solidly Republican always brings a asking from Democrats, who constantly mistake the new South — the product of economic growth and migration — with the old South they provided over for so many years.

They lament the racism they so successfully fomented for years, as if their party played no role in it. They’ve washed their hands clean. As “penance,” they’ve taken on a different form of identity politics which doesn’t involve standing in the schoolhouse door but is every bit as pernicious.

That’s why the 13th Amendment ought to be celebrated a bit more, we think. Not only did it officially end slavery and passed without Democratic support, it had to be passed before the Southern Democrats could rejoin the Union, lest they continue one of the most evil practices in the history of this planet.

The Democrats have always been the party of oppression and identity politics, whether it be Dec. 6, 1865 or Dec. 6, 2018. If only America would remember that. The Democrats would certainly prefer you didn’t.

School Board Fires Christian Teacher by 5-0 Vote for Refusing To Use Kid’s Preferred Pronoun


Reported By Benjamin Arie | December 9, 2018 at 5:22pm

A widely respected teacher in Virginia is out of a job and his family now has no income after he committed the gravest of politically-incorrect sins: He used the word “she” to refer to a girl.

On Thursday, Peter Vlaming was released from his teaching position at West Point High School after all five board members voted that his objection to using male pronouns for a female student was a fireable offense.

According to WRIC News, a girl at that school decided that she is transgender, and insisted that everyone call her by a new name. Vlaming had no problem with this, but drew the line at saying “him” and “his” to refer to a student who is biologically female. The teacher and students who know him explained that this wasn’t about purposely insulting the transgender person, but rather about being honest and true to his personal beliefs.

“My religious faith dictates that I am to love and respect everyone, whether I agree with them or not. Because we are all made in God’s image,” Vlaming said in an opening statement at the board meeting which decided his fate.

“I am also aware of, and agree, with speech limits that are placed on public school teachers, concerning matters of religious faith,” the teacher continued. “However, we are here today because a specific worldview is being imposed upon me.”

By all accounts, the teacher tried to accommodate the trans student in many ways but does not believe his faith or personal code permits him to pretend that a girl is now a boy.

“I won’t use male pronouns with a female student that now identifies as a male though I did agree to use the new masculine name but avoid female pronouns,” Vlaming said, according to an online petition that circulated to protect his job. Over 2,500 people sided with him.

“Administration is requiring that I use masculine pronouns in any and every context at school. I was informed that any further instances of using female pronouns would be grounds for termination,” the teacher continued.

For their part, the school is claiming that it’s an issue of tolerance … yet they seem to be demonstrating intolerance themselves.

“We do not and cannot tolerate discrimination in any form, or actions that create a hostile environment for any member of our school family,” declared the school board.

It apparently didn’t dawn on them that firing a member of their “school family” for his personal views was fairly hostile.

“What could be worse for your family than being fired from your job for not lying and violating conscience?” wondered Robert A. J. Gagnon, a Harvard-educated theology expert who is following the controversy.

A large number of students and parents apparently agree. “The public hearing was held in the Chorus Room, only allowing 38 members of the public to sit in on the meeting,” explained The Family Foundation.

“There were well over a hundred people who tried to attend the meeting in the middle of a Thursday afternoon. Students and parents sat in the hallway watching a live-stream of the hearing when they learned they could not get into the room,” the pro-family group continued.

Here’s the bottom line: Schools are supposed to be places where facts, reality, and critical thinking are held up as high standards. Young and often rebellious students should have a voice, but they are not the ones who run our schools.

The female student can still be treated with respect, as this teacher reportedly tried to do. She can still choose for herself how she wants to live outside of the school and make choices for herself when she’s an adult graduate.

But the reality is that this student is biologically a female, try as she might to pretend otherwise. Forcing the rest of the school and society as a whole to bend to her whims is not only contradicting scientific facts, it imposes her views onto other people. In a word, it’s dishonest.

Experts agree: America being exploited by veiled threat of Islam


Reported by J.M. Phelps (OneNewsNow.com) | Tuesday, December 11, 2018

'It's Islam stupid!' signA pair of experts say the demands of Islam, particularly those in defiance of the laws and customs of the United States, do not have to be accommodated by the government or military.

In opposition to a 200-year tradition, Minnesota Democrat Ilhan Omar desires to wear her Islamic headscarf while serving as an incoming member of Congress. Likewise, the Air Force is appeasing Muslims by granting waivers for wearing beards.

In response to the latter example, Dr. Bill Warner, founder of the Center for the Study of Political Islam, tells OneNewsNow “there is a hadith [a tradition] that says Muslims should wear a beard without a moustache. This is a political demand to the Kafirs (non-Muslims). The out here is that if it were denied, then the sin is on the Kafir and the Muslim is released from the Sharia rule.”

Warner

Warner explains that two, often over-looked principles of Islamic law “give direction to Muslims who find themselves in situations where they cannot practice Islam in complete obedience to the totalitarian rules of Sharia – Islamic law.”

The principle of tayseer allows a Muslim to “lighten one’s burden,” according to Warner, which then “leads to the second principle of dararu.” Appointed times of prayer for the Muslim may become lenient, for example, when circumstances to fulfill this duty become difficult or impossible. Missed prayers would simply be accomplished at another time – without doing any harm to their religious beliefs.

Author of Lifting the Veil: The True Faces of Muhammad and Islam, I.Q. al-Rassooli, concurs. The Iraqi-born native Arabic-speaker, living in an undisclosed location in Europe says, “everything Dr. Warner shared is true and correct.”

Al-Rassooli suggests few people in the American government, military, or citizenry have either the knowledge or the backbone to say “although these Sharia-compliant Muslims were elected fairly or may be serving in the U.S. military, they cannot ever be loyal to the American Constitution because Sharia is the nemesis of all known human freedoms.”

al-Rassooli

He declares “the minute a woman insists she wears a hijab, that means she is Sharia-compliant. Since she is Sharia-compliant, she cannot be loyal among non-Muslims. It’s that simple. It’s not complicated.”

Likewise, al-Rassooli points out “if a Muslim is insisting he needs to have a beard, for so-called religious reasons – which, in fact, means he is Sharia-compliant – then automatically these same reasons would also mandate that he destroy the infidel [the non-Muslim].” He believes “such Muslims are nothing short of a waiting, and ticking, suicide bomber.”

Allowing Muslims to be Sharia-adherent in the U.S. military is “the worst mistake,” according to al-Rassooli. “I have absolutely no doubt that one day soon, such a Muslim will cause horrendous and catastrophic damage, either to planes or to an aircraft carrier.” “The sole purpose in the life of every [Sharia-compliant] Muslim anywhere on Earth is to subjugate all of humanity to Sharia,” al-Rassooli avows. “Therefore, their foremost method is to deceive hundreds of millions of Qur’an-ignorant and Sharia-ignorant people that they [Muslims] mean well.”

According to both Warner and al-Rassooli, Muslims can be released from the demands of Islam while living in America. Sharia offers some leniency, which dismisses any professed necessity for the United States to nix its Constitution to become Sharia-compliant.

Trump Paid Stormy Himself. Congress Paid Its Victims $17 Million out of Treasury. Who’re the Real Criminals?



Reported By Cillian Zeal | December 10, 2018 at 12:16pm

The one person who seemed to sum up the Democrats’ reaction to Michael Cohen’s guilty plea — and subsequent allegations against President Donald Trump — was Rep. Jerry Nadler. There’s long been speculation that the New York Democrat is considering impeachment hearings against Trump and anyone around him regardless of what the evidence might entail. A report from the day after the midterms had the powerful ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee ranting on a train about impeaching Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. He also talked about going “all in” on Russia.

Well, Russia might not work out, but how about Cohen? On TV this weekend, Nadler talked in grave terms about Cohen’s claim that Trump directed him to pay Stormy Daniels as part of a non-disclosure agreement and paid him back. This would, according to Nadler, be a sufficient reason to remove Trump from office.

“They would be impeachable offenses. Whether they’re important enough to justify an impeachment is a different question,” Nadler said in an appearance on CNN.

“Certainly, they’re impeachable offenses, because, even though they were committed before the president became president, they were committed in the service of fraudulently obtaining the office.”

This is hardly a surprise; from Day One, Nadler has called Trump “not legitimate” as a president. But the media is lapping it up. They seem to forget two things.

One, campaign finance issues — and it’s questionable as to whether this falls under the aegis of campaign finance — are generally settled without impeachment proceedings, mostly because they aren’t important enough to justify an impeachment.

The second is, well, how does Congress have any room to talk?

Yes, $17 million of taxpayer money has been spent on settling, among other things, sexual harassment claims in Congress, and we pretty much don’t know anything about the cases. As CNN noted, the names of those involved are withheld not only from the public but also from party leadership.

“A source in House Speaker Paul Ryan’s office told CNN that Ryan is not made aware of the details of harassment settlements. That source also said that the top Democrat and Republican on the House administration committee review proposed settlements and both must approve the payments,” the network  reported in November 2017.

“Similarly, a source in Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s office told CNN that Pelosi also is not made aware of those details, and that they are confined to the parties of the settlement and the leaders of the administration committee.”

This is essentially the cozy system that the establishment has set up so that it doesn’t have to face repercussions from sexual harassment lawsuits, discrimination suits and the like. There are also other rebarbative elements of how the system is set up, too long to detail here but enraging in their own right.

But this is perfectly legal.

Trump, meanwhile, paid a much smaller sum to women who allege he had consensual sex with him in order to obtain an NDA. Because of the methodology of obtaining it and the question of whether or not it should have been included in campaign finance reports, we’re now talking impeachment. Apparently, Nadler isn’t going all-in on Russia, he’s going all-in on Stormy. I guess it’s easier.

So, yes, Nadler can continue to claim that “the president was at the center of a massive fraud — several massive frauds against the American people.” That doesn’t actually mean anything. If we scrutinized the campaign ledgers of everyone in high office for any sort of problem, we’d probably have to extirpate at least half of them from their position.

Now, here’s the thing: I haven’t seen the Mueller report. Neither has Nadler. For all I know, Trump is implicated in a panoply of heinous crimes and his ties with Russia were way more extensive than we thought. Or it could be a very big nothingburger, albeit a nothingburger dressed up like a very appetizing somethingburger and advertised incessantly in the media like it was the Arch Deluxe circa 1992.

I still have my money on the latter, and I think Nadler does too. He heavily qualified whether the alleged campaign finance violations rose to the level of impeachability.

“You don’t necessarily launch an impeachment against the president because he committed an impeachable offense,” he said. “There are several things you have to look at.”

“One, were impeachable offenses committed, how many, et cetera. Secondly, how important were they? Do they rise to the gravity where you should undertake an impeachment? An impeachment is an attempt to effect or overturn the result of the last election and should do it only for very serious situations. That’s the question.”

My guess is that Nadler finds they were very important, committed with great frequency and rise to the gravity where one should undertake an impeachment — an impeachment which would overturn the result of the last election, which elected a president Nadler has already declared as “not legitimate.”

The rest of us might look at the report and realize this has nothing on what Congress has been doing for years. Whether that makes it right is an entirely different question, but the contrast will still make a huge difference in terms of how Americans view any attempts at impeachment.

After all, Trump used his own money to pay for an NDA through a liaison, which would generally garner a minor fine at most if you even concede it was a campaign-related expense. Congress used $17 million of your money to pay for its mistakes, some of which involved sexual harassment. They took every possible step to make sure you didn’t know about it. And they made it all perfectly legal.

Dems still confused by racist, hateful, clueless GOP voters


Reported by Steve Jordahl (OneNewsNow.com) | Monday, December 10, 2018

I Vote Pro-Life (woman holding sign)Leaders of the Democratic Party keep talking down to Christian voters even while claiming they want to reach them and earn their vote.

At a gathering of far-left activists, DNC chairman Tom Perez complained that pastors’ conservative sermons are one reason Democrats’ message doesn’t resonate with churchgoers.

“Their principle sources of information are Fox News, their NRA newsletter, and the pulpit on Sunday,” Perez complained to the gathering of Demand Justice, which formed this year to fight for “progressive change” in the federal courts.

Are you surprised a Dem leader is blaming pastors for pushing a conservative message?
Yes, must not know many pastorsYes, maybe actually visit a churchYes, somebody was thinking out loud again, huh?No, conservatives get blamed for everythingNo, the Church is the far left’s newest enemyNo, but it’s good to be reminded of their beliefs

“And it should come as a surprise to no one,” he added, “that our message doesn’t penetrate.”

Perez’s rant singled out the abortion issue, when he complained that the churchgoers are told to focus on Roe v Wade but ignore other issues. Kristin Day of Democrats for Life tells OneNewsNow there is not a single leading Democrat who understands the pro-life right.

“With the Democratic candidates for president who have been named,” she says, “I don’t see one that can really bring the party together so far: Cory Booker, Kamala Harris or Elizabeth Warren.”

It’s not new to hear Democratic leaders suggest conservative voters are brainless, hateful and racist, but many of those voters have good memories, too.

“So it’s not surprising then,” Barack Obama told a San Francisco fund-raiser in 2008, “that they get bitter, and they cling to guns, or religion, or antipathy towards people who aren’t like them.”

Then-Democratic primary opponent Hillary Clinton said at the time she was “taken aback by the demeaning remarks,” but it wasn’t too long until the presidential nominee was describing a “basket of deplorables” to a similar audience.

“The racists, sexists, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic,” Clinton said. “You name it.”

Day says Democrats would be wise to get over the “fear” of pro-life people, suggesting that the far-left party would be wise to embrace a pro-life politician such as Louisiana’s governor, John Bel Edwards. But the far-left Democratic Party doesn’t seem to be listening to that suggestion. 

Justices won’t hear states’ appeal over Planned Parenthood


Associated Press

WASHINGTON (December 10, 2018) — The Supreme Court on Monday avoided a high-profile case by rejecting appeals from Kansas and Louisiana in their effort to strip Medicaid money from Planned Parenthood, over the dissenting votes of three justices. The court’s order reflected a split among its conservative justices and an accusation from Justice Clarence Thomas that his colleagues seemed to be ducking the case for political reasons. New Justice Brett Kavanaugh was among the justices who opted not to hear the case.

The two states were appealing lower court rulings that had blocked them from withholding money that is used for health services for low-income women. The money is not used for abortions. Abortion opponents have said Planned Parenthood should not receive any government money because of heavily edited videos that showed the nation’s largest abortion provider profiting from sales of fetal tissue for medical research.

Investigations sparked by the videos in several states didn’t result in criminal charges.

The dispute at the high court has nothing to do with abortion, as Thomas pointed out in a dissent that was joined by Justices Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch. Kavanaugh’s decision not to join the three justices was his first discernible vote on the court. Had he or Chief Justice John Roberts voted to hear the case, there would have been the four votes necessary to set the case for arguments.

The issue is who has the right to challenge a state’s Medicaid funding decisions, private individuals or only the federal government. The states say that the Medicaid program, a joint venture of federal and state governments to provide health care to poorer Americans, makes clear that only the Secretary of Health and Human Services can intervene, by withholding money from a state.

Most lower federal courts have found that private parties can challenge Medicaid funding decisions in court, although the federal appeals court in St. Louis rejected a similar court challenge and allowed Arkansas to end its contract with Planned Parenthood. A split among federal appeals courts is often a reason for the Supreme Court to step in.

“So what explains the court’s refusal to do its job here? I suspect it has something to do with the fact that some respondents in these cases are named ‘Planned Parenthood.’ That makes the Court’s decision particularly troubling, as the question presented has nothing to do with abortion,” Thomas wrote.

The dispute over funding for Planned Parenthood stemmed from the July 2015 release by the pro-life group Center for Medical Progress of a series of edited videos purportedly depicting Planned Parenthood of America executives talking about the sale of fetal tissue. Planned Parenthood has said it did not seek any payments beyond legally permitted reimbursement of costs.

Catherine Glenn Foster, president and CEO of the pro-life Americans United for Life, said the court should have heard the case. “But the good news is that there are other similar cases pending in lower courts, which may give the Supreme Court another opportunity to decide this important issue. In the meantime, AUL will continue to fight to protect states from being forced to use their limited public funds to subsidize abortion businesses,” Foster said.
