Kamala Backpedals On Private Health Insurance


Written by Wes Walker on January 30, 2019

Kamala Harris was a little TOO honest about her plans for nationalizing health care… and now she’s in damage control mode. Where Obama famously lied with his line ‘if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor’ and if you like your plan you can keep it, Kamala reached even further saying she would dispose of health plans altogether.

That IS, after all, what the left really means when they talk about single-payer, right? So what’s the big deal with being bluntly honest about what your big agenda is?

Well, suddenly Socialism is looking less like a friendly helping hand from the government and more like centralized control and Soviet bread lines.

Even CNN was reporting the screw-up, albeit in more friendly terms:

By stating she would eliminate private insurers as a necessary part of implementing “Medicare-for-all,” California Sen. Kamala Harris during a CNN town hall Monday night sent a shockwave through the national health care debate.

Harris’ comments underscored the extent to which a move to single payer would radically overhaul the current system and, in frankly addressing one of the transition’s most politically difficult steps, stepped directly into her critics’ crosshairs.

Republicans attacked Harris within minutes of her remarks, tweeting that she “says she wants to eliminate private insurance even if you like your plan.” By Tuesday morning, former Starbucks boss Howard Schultz was piling on and fellow billionaire potential presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York, was dismissing the entire plan as a fiscally ruinous pipe dream.

As the furor grew, a Harris adviser on Tuesday signaled that the candidate would also be open to the more moderate health reform plans, which would preserve the industry, being floated by other congressional Democrats. It represents a compromise position that risks angering “Medicare-for-all” proponents, who view eliminating private health insurance as key to enacting their comprehensive reform.

With Venezuela blazing as a shining beacon about all the perils inherent in the Socialist Solutions, she’s doubling down anyway. Both the adviser and Harris national press secretary Ian Sams said her willingness to consider alternate routes to a single payer system should not cast doubt on her commitment to the policy.

“Medicare-for-all is the plan that she believes will solve the problem and get all Americans covered. Period,” Sams told CNN. “She has co-sponsored other pieces of legislation that she sees as a path to getting us there, but this is the plan she is running on.”
Source: CNN

Even friendlies on the Left — like Dick Durbin, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, and Bloomberg have shot it down. Nevertheless, against all sound reason, she persisted… she’s just willing to get there by whatever means is palatable to the public — so long as she gets there eventually.

“I believe the solution — and I actually feel very strongly about this — is that we need to have Medicare-for-all,” she said. “That’s just the bottom line.”

Harris then spoke about her mother and the benefits of Medicare, a point she has made repeatedly and wrote about in a New York Times op-ed, and called the current order “inhumane” for making “people go through a system where they cannot literally receive the benefit of what medical science can offer because some insurance company has decided it doesn’t meet their bottom line in terms of their profit motivation.”

When pressed by town hall host Jake Tapper over whether she would be willing to eliminate private health insurance as part of creating that new single payer system, Harris stood firm.

“Who of us has not had that situation, where you’ve got to wait for approval (for medical care) and the doctor says, well, I don’t know if your insurance company is going to cover this?,” Harris said. “Let’s eliminate all of that. Let’s move on.”

Well, if nothing else, at least we can thank her for being up-front about her agenda to nationalize America. Most leftists — even those who agree with here — are reluctant to say the quiet part out loud.

For the record — Cuba and Venezuela have ‘free’ health care. What does the vaunted ‘free’ Cuban health care look like? It is ‘free’ but free still costs something. In this case, the forfeiture of all Cuban industry to pay for it. Here’s one observer’s description of what using their system looks like:

To end, I will just say that nurses need to ask patients (who bring their own) to lend them their thermometer or  blood pressure cuff to take everyone else’s temperature and blood pressure because they don’t have any at the hospital to do this. Next to my mother, there was an 88-year-old woman with ischemia, who needed a special need for a drip and my father had to go out on the street to get her one.

On the other hand, my wife has gallstones which torment her with pain, but it’s still not a life or death urgency so she still hasn’t been operated. She has to look after our small daughter like this. She received the diagnosis in November and she was only put on the surgeon’s operations list in January. It’s been five months now and she still isn’t anywhere near being operated. Her complementary tests have expired and she needs to do them again. When she did them, there weren’t any needles so I had to go out and find them outside. I have no words. Source: Havana Times

HEY BERNIE FANS: Venezuela’s Socialized Medicine Threatens Life of Baby Boy

Have you seen the heart-rending stories where cancer treatment is being sold on the black market, and Venezuelans? Have you seen the BBC footage of their hospitals? If someone comes with a cardiac arrest, they die. We have nothing to treat them. Even their defibrillators do not work. Their supplies drawers are not low… they are legitimately empty. Everything is gone.  — read more here.

Maybe you dismiss that as ‘third world’ problems, and not problems with the Socialist Health care. Here’s the UK:

The problem with government health care is how very quickly it stops being about CARE and starts being about CONTROL.

That dirty little secret the left won’t talk about is a quote from one of our stories on the Tragic bureaucratic failures that lead directly to the needless death of Alfie Evans. In case you don’t think it can happen here… it could. All too easily. If you’re having trouble imagining that possibility, just take the failures that have plagued the VA since forever… and replicate them at a national level.

You could look up the Fraser Institute’s latest study on wait times in Canada. Or you could just watch this Canadian doctor drop tell Bernie Sanders the ‘Inconvenient Truth’ on his radio show:

That’s one helluva truthbomb!

With chants of ‘Drain the Swamp’, we sent Trump to Washington for a reason:  to protect our Freedoms from the all-consuming appetite of a Leviathan Government. That’s why he started slashing red tape and taxes. He’s getting Government out of the way, so free people —  individuals and businesses — can give the double middle-finger to the scolds who recently told us ‘you didn’t build that’.

Biden claimed that Republicans wanted to “put y’all back in chains”. But in two years as President, he’s done the opposite.

Trump came to take the shackles off so that the world could once again hear the Roar of true American Freedom.

Police Report Is Game-Changer in Case of Gay, Black Actor Attacked by ‘Trump Supporters’


Reported By C. Douglas Golden | January 30, 2019 at 9:29am

When gay black actor Jussie Smollett said he was attacked by white men who yelled some stuff about “MAGA,” it didn’t take long for the liberal rage machine to mobilize.

“The star of the tv show ‘Empire,’ Jussie Smollett, was attacked by two assailants early Monday morning in Downtown Chicago according to Chicago Police Department Spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi,” CNN reported.

“Smollett, 36, was walking on the 300 block of E. North Lower Water Street when two men approached him and ‘gained his attention by yelling out racial and homophobic slurs towards him,’ Guglielmi says in a statement.

“Two unknown offenders — it is unknown if they were male or female — then attacked Smollett, hitting him in the face and then poured an unknown chemical substance on him.

“At some point during the scuffle, one of the offenders wrapped a rope around the victim’s neck and then both offenders fled the scene, the statement reads.”

Smollett took himself to Northwestern Hospital, where the incident was reported to police, according to CBS Chicago.

There was plenty of condemnation to go around, particularly after TMZ reported that the attackers had shouted “this is MAGA country.” Two of the outraged included black Democratic senators, who just by chance, happen to either be running for president or widely expected to be running for president.

There was one problem with this “modern-day lynching” narrative: None of that “MAGA country” stuff was originally mentioned to police and they’re having trouble corroborating the fact that the attack even happened.

“According to the victim, the offenders’ faces were concealed,” a police spokesman said, according to Reason. “We have no record indicating that (they shouted ‘MAGA’), we only have record of them shouting racial and homophobic slurs at him.”

A statement from Chicago Police confirmed that, Reason reported.

“We have no record of the ‘MAGA Country’ comment,” the statement said, according to Reason. “We have racial and homophobic comments documented.”

CNN reported that when police heard about the accusation and called the actor, he “relayed it to detectives in a supplemental interview.”

But then again, there’s some doubt as to whether the attack even happened.

In an area that has a “very high density” of surveillance cameras, according to the police spokesman’s statement, there is not a single image of an attack like the one Smollett described.

“A Chicago police spokesperson tells CNN that investigators canvassed the neighborhood where the reported attack occurred on actor Jussie Smollett and have found no still images or video from security cameras of the incident,” CNN reported.

“The only image of Smollett police obtained from security cameras was inside Subway Sandwich shop near the location of the reported crime, the actor was standing alone.”

For all I know, Smollett really was attacked by bigots who shouted the phrase “MAGA country,” and ambitious, Democratic politicians who are calling this a “a modern-day lynching” are absolutely justified. But here’s the thing — I’m going to wait to see whether or not that’s the case, as everyone else should have.

It hasn’t even been a fortnight since the Covington Catholic incident, and the lesson we were should have taken away from that “teachable moment” — be careful dealing with stories that confirm your cultural narrative — has been lost.

No fewer than two senators with eyes on the 2020 Democratic nomination have taken this accusation as gospel because they can use it as an illustration of supposed Trump-fueled hate coursing through the country, even though no arrests have been made and the evidence is scanty. If this turns out to be a hoax, Sens. Booker and Harris own this, as do the legion of liberals who tweeted this out without waiting for a fuller investigation.

Even if this turns out to be true, what they did was supremely irresponsible. That these two individuals are in the Senate is bad enough. Just imagine one of them in the White House, backed by a legion of people who think Donald Trump supporters are irresponsible bigots, but are willing to blame white Donald Trump supporters for a hate crime without any charges or even direct physical evidence. It will make the Obama years look like pure reason.

Exclusive–Angel Mom: Kamala Harris’ Staff Threatened to Call Capitol Police When Angel Families Visited Her Office


Reported by John Binder | January 29, 2019

Angel Families on Capitol Hill WASHINGTON, DC – JUNE 15: Senate Intelligence Committee member Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) (R) leaves a closed-door committee meeting with Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats in the Hart Senate Office Building June 15, 2017 in Washington, DC. According to committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC), …

Angel Mom Maureen Maloney, the vice president of Advocates for Victims of Illegal Alien Crime (AVIAC), says Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA)’s staff threatened to call Capitol Police when Angel Families visited her Senate office in Washington, DC, this month.

Maloney — whose 23 years-old son, Matthew Denice, was killed in August 2011 by an illegal alien who ran over him while drunk driving without a license — told SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Tonight that the staff of Democrat 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris threatened to call Capitol Police when Angel Families visited the offices of prominent House and Senate Democrats to discuss illegal alien crime.

Meanwhile, Maloney told Breitbart News Senior Editors-at-Large Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak that Harris makes it known that illegal aliens are welcome in her office.

“So we went past her office about two weeks ago, we were in D.C. to see … Pelosi and Senator Chuck Schumer, and Kamala Harris, in front of her office, has a big welcome sign in Spanish that says ‘Dreamers Are Welcome,’” Maloney said.

MANSOUR: Were you welcome?

MALONEY: No, in fact, two of the people I was with, they threatened to call Capitol Police on them if they didn’t leave.

MANSOUR: Kamala Harris’ staff threatened to call the police on you?

MALONEY: Yes.

Listen to Maloney’s full interview here:

In her 2020 presidential campaign kickoff speech in Oakland, California, Harris portrayed herself as an advocate for crime victims and thanked illegal aliens for visiting lawmakers in Washington, D.C.

You see, in our system of justice, we believe that harm against any one of us is harm against all of us. That’s why when we file a case, it’s not filed in the name of the victim. It reads, “The People.” This is a point I have often explained to console and counsel survivors of crime, people who faced great harm. Often at the hands of someone they trust – be it a relative or a bank or a big corporation. I would remind them. You are not invisible. We all stand together. [Emphasis added]

During the health care fight, I saw parents and children with grave illnesses walk the halls of the United States Congress, families who had traveled across the country at incredible sacrifice. They came to our nation’s capital believing that if their stories were heard, and if they were seen, their leaders would do the right thing. I saw the same thing with our Dreamers. They came by the thousands. By plane, train, and automobile. I’m sure they were sleeping ten-deep on someone’s living room floor. [Emphasis added]

Maloney said it is illegal aliens who have the upper hand against their American victims, not only when it comes to trying to speak with lawmakers, but also in the court system.

“Illegal aliens are treated with such leniency compared to American citizens. It’s really sickening what goes on in the courts,” Maloney said.

Harris and other elected Democrat lawmakers are “absolutely not” working on behalf of illegal alien crime victims, Maloney said, noting that she and other Angel Families have been unable to meet with Democrats about the immigration issue for years.

“My senators up here, Sen. Markey and Sen. Warren, I’ve tried for years to get an appointment to meet with them. They’re unable to meet with people here in Massachusetts and down in Washington,” Maloney said. “When I’ve been down in Washington to meet with Democrat leaders, they’re not available. Members of AVIAC have been trying to meet with Nancy Pelosi as long as we’ve been in existence and they’ve made public pleas to meet with her and she won’t meet with any of us.”

“No, I don’t feel that the Democrats are representing my family at all,” Maloney said.

Lesbians Protest Trans Activists – Grab Some Popcorn!


Written by Wes Walker on January 29, 2019

The Left’s intersectional coalition is imploding… exactly as predicted. What do you EXPECT will happen among groups ‘united’ by their grievances?

There’s a really good reason the Left has to push their bogus ‘sexist, racist, homophobe’ line so hard that it’s beyond parody. If they ever stop hating ‘the evil Republicans’ long enough to take a good look at whose on ‘their’ team, they will realize they aren’t really fighting for the same things.

We saw cracks in their base between the Islam/Feminism factions where one started curb-stomping the other here:
Watch: Topless Feminist Agitators Disrupt Muslim Speaking Engagement … All Hell Breaks Loose!

And now the LGBT ‘alliance’ is starting to crumble. How ‘bisexual’ will maintain its place in the acronym in our Brave New Gender-Fluid World is ‘problematic’ enough, but now Lesbians are taking issue with the transgender crowd.

Just like we predicted.

Although, I have to admit, we were expecting the Feminists would split off first — see our piece picking up on the parody t-ball story: 36yr. Old Man Identifies As 6yr. Old – Wins T-Ball Game With EPIC Home Run!

What got the lesbians upset with the trans activists? Here’s a headlne from last summer:

London Pride: Anti-trans activists disrupt parade by lying down in the street to protest ‘lesbian erasure’ LGBT groups condemn protesters who describe trans movement as ‘anti-lesbianism’

You see more of that sentiment here:

Kara Dansky, a feminist lawyer and spokeswoman for Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF), spoke against the so-called “Equality Act” at the Heritage Foundation on Monday, denouncing the transgender and gender identity movement as anti-women and anti-lesbian in particular. Her remarks echoed the London Pride March sign declaring that “Transactivism Erases Lesbians.”

“This is a men’s Rights movement — this is really a men’s rights movement,” Dansky declared, calling for men to stand up for women and denounce the transgender movement.

“Overwhelmingly women have been resisting this,” Hacsi Horvath, a man who once identified as a woman and underwent surgery, said a few seconds before Dansky’s remark. “And it’s really shocking how many men on the internet are defending the whole trans thing. Straight men are all about the trans, and you have to wonder what the heck is going on.”

Horvath agreed with Dansky in condemning transgender activism as a “Men’s Rights movement,” and Julia Beck — a lesbian and former member of the Baltimore mayor’s LGBTQ Commission — nodded in agreement. Beck had been kicked off of the commission for opposing transgender identity.

“I got kicked off of the Baltimore mayor’s LGBTQ commission — as the only lesbian — simply for stating biological facts,” Beck said. “I was found guilty of ‘violence.’ My crime? Using male pronouns to talk about a convicted male rapist who identifies as transgender and prefers female pronouns.”

Lesbian thrown under the bus for using the wrong pronoun. And she’s wondering why straight men aren’t standing up for men’s rights. Where does it all end?

It ends when everyone realizes that the Conservative approach of general rights for all and special rights for none — with the government getting the hell out of our way for most aspects of our lives — is the best path to genuine personal freedom of every kind.

After 4 Officers Shot, Furious Police Union Pres. Lays into Media, Antifa-Types. ‘Sick & Tired of Dirtbags Trying To Take Our Lives… the Ones Spreading Rhetoric That Police Officers Are the Enemy…’


Reported By Malachi Bailey | January 29, 2019 at 10:58am

Houston Police Officers’ Union President Joe Gamaldi slammed “dirtbags” who spread anti-law enforcement rhetoric after four Houston police officers were shot Monday night during a drug raid. The shootout took place while officers were investigating a drug case the southeast section of the city, according to ABC News.

They were met with gunfire as soon as they reached the door of the home they were targeting. Four were wounded immediately, with two shot in the neck, according to CNN. Two suspects were found dead at the scene.

Initial reports indicated five officers had been shot, but CNN reported that the five had suffered a knee injury.

Speaking at the hospital, Gamaldi exploded on those who support anti-cop rhetoric.

“We are sick and tired of having targets on our back,” he said.

Police officers have been under fire from the left in recent years, especially with protests from so-called antifa thugs and NFL players like Colin Kaepernick. The media only fuels the left’s outrage by zealously reporting on alleged incidents of police brutality. But the media doesn’t report on police officers who’ve been brutalized with anywhere near the same level of interest.

In 2018, 144 police officers died. That’s a 12 percent increase from the 129 police officers who died in 2017.

“We are sick and tired of having dirtbags trying to take our lives when all we’re trying to do is protect this community and protect our families,” Gamaldi said. “Enough is enough.”


It’s obvious that Gamaldi was referring to antifa and the left-wing media. Liberals seem to have no respect for the law — they embrace illegal immigration, want to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and even criticize police officers at every opportunity.

Do you think the media is anti-cop?

Yes No

When NFL players were protesting “police brutality,” the establishment media rarely stopped to clarify that the overwhelming majority of police officers are good people dealing with some of the most dangerous elements in society. Because of the left’s blatant anti-cop rhetoric, tragedies are more likely to happen.

When the left-wing establishment media undermines the law, some criminals see a green light to do whatever they please. And Monday’s shooting in Houston is exactly the result to expect.

Home Depot Co-Founder Blasts Socialism, Quietly Calls Out Ocasio-Cortez in Explosive Interview


Reported By Karista Baldwin | January 27, 2019 at 10:32am

The co-founder of The Home Depot slammed supporters of socialism during a Friday interview on Fox News. Bernard Marcus, The Home Depot co-founder, talked to Fox News host Neil Cavuto about the failure of socialism in Venezuela and Cuba. Marcus said socialism has devastated those countries and compared their present state to what they were like before socialist rule. He specifically called Cuba a “perfect example of socialism gone wrong.”

“They took a great country. They put it right down the drain in every way possible,” Marcus said about Cuba.

“People are starving to death. Medical (care) is not available for them. And we have a group of people in Washington today, new representatives especially, that look at socialism as the way to go,” he said. “And if you don’t think that’s dangerous, I do.”

Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is one such self-proclaimed “socialist Democrat.” Ocasio-Cortez is one of the leading backers of the Green New Deal, which calls for some of the largest government expansion in decades.

Yes No

Marcus told Cavuto that he believed the growing support for socialism among young Americans “comes right out of the universities.”

“You see students graduating today and a very high percentage … almost 50 percent of students coming out of universities today believe that socialism is the answer,” Marcus said.

One recent survey found that that 51 percent of American millennials would rather live under socialist or communist rule than in a capitalist country. A study by Campus Reform found that Ocasio-Cortez’s alma mater, Boston University, overwhelmingly supported Democratic causes. The study found that of the donations given by Boston University faculty in 2017-2018, 97 percent were to Democrat politicians and Democrat organizations. And support for socialism springs from these disproportionately left-leaning schools.

RELATED: Ocasio-Cortez’s Talking Points Sound Eerily Similar to Stalin’s Soviet Constitution

“That’s frightening to me because the things that made this country great, that created the wealth of this country — and I mean the wealth of every single person right down the line — the best medical care in the world, the best housing in the world, that’s why people want to come here, is because of the system, and that’s the free enterprise system,” Marcus said.

Instead of looking to socialism, Marcus said to look at what the U.S. is doing right. He pointed to the current low unemployment and economic prosperity.

“Why would you want to take that formula, where there’s prosperity, where jobs are out there where people can pay their own way, take care of their families. Why would you want to change that?”

It’s a good question to ask those like Ocasio-Cortez who are eager to proclaim the virtues of socialism.  One just needs to look to Cuba or Venezuela to see what a few decades of socialism will do to a country.

Group of Border Patrol wives invite House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to visit Texas border town


Reported By Lucia I. Suarez Sang | Fox News

“We would like to show you around! You don’t need to bring any security detail. Our husbands/boyfriends/fiancés/wives/significant others are actually very good at their jobs, thank goodness!” Jill Demanski wrote in the letter posted on Facebook.

Demanski added: “We’d also appreciate if you’d stop pretending that you care about federal workers. If you did, you would care for their safety, not just their paychecks. We can hold out a while longer if it means our husbands and communities are safer.”

Posted on Thursday – a day before President Trump announced a tentative deal to reopen the government at least until mid-February – the letter quickly went viral.

“I felt it’s really important to have our leaders come here and see what’s happening first. It’s important to meet with the people who are here on a daily basis, that are witnessing it – the effects of it, that it has on our country,” Demaski said on “Fox & Friends” on Monday. “We want them to come here and make an informed decision and to see what’s really going on.”

A 17-person bipartisan committee of House and Senate lawmakers is expected to negotiate border spending as part of the legislative process. It’s unclear if Democrats will budge in their opposition to funding a border wall, while Trump said Sunday he doubted he could accept any agreement struck by congressional negotiators that gives him less than his requested $5.7 billion for the construction of a barrier on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Renea Perez, another Border Patrol wife, told “Fox & Friends” that, while the women feel safe in Rio Grande Valley, the men and women who patrol the southern border could still use some help in high-traffic areas.

“[A wall] will allow them to do their job more efficiently and give them more time – if they are by themselves – have another agent meet them. It is definitely needed,” Perez said. “We just want them to come down there on the line and actually see where the argument is all about.”

She added the partial shutdown was very hard for the families of Border Patrol agents, who hadn’t received a paycheck during the partial shutdown, and, at times, it felt like nobody cared about their community.

“It gets tough. The bills don’t stop. We were feeling like we were forgotten,” Perez said.

Demaski said if Pelosi sees the letter and agrees to visit, she hopes the California Democrat will do a ride-along with border agents to see the day-to-day experiences of those on the front lines of the border issue.

“Border patrol and our agents and experts here have been asking for [the wall] for years,” she said. “Now we have a president who has come here and seen first-hand the need and has had our backs.”

THIS IS OUTRAGIOUS. THIS IS A MUST READ AND SHARE TYPE REPORT: “California Dept. Of Education Wants To Teach Your Kindergartners There Are 15 Genders”



Reported by Tim Brown

OTHER URLs OF RELATED REPORTS:

Parents that stand for this and willingly submit their little ones to this perversion should be held accountable for child abuse, but they won’t be in a state that sanctions it.

Apparently, in the land of fruits and nuts, the California Department of Education believes it knows what is best for your children and wants to teach kindergartners that there are at least 15 different genders.  Not only that, but the curriculum being looked at claims that it is an impossibility to know whether a baby is a boy or a girl or something else… forget that 6,000 years of history has taught us “boys have a penis, girls have a vagina.”

Alex Newman from The Freedom Project and The New American was interviewed about California’s plan to indoctrinate young children, and no, parents you can’t opt out of the propaganda that will be fed to your little ones.

Newman reported in April 2018:

In a March 29 memo obtained by FreedomProject Media, Orange County Board of Education General Counsel Ronald Wenkart detailed his legal reasoning. As part of the “California Healthy Youth Act,” government schools are required to provide so-called “Comprehensive Sexuality Education.” One section of the “Education Code,” though, allows parents or guardians to excuse their child from “comprehensive sexual health education and HIV education,” Wenkart wrote.

Unfortunately, there is a giant loophole in the law that still mandates LGBT indoctrination. Another section of the “Code” explains that the exemption does not apply to “instruction, materials, or programming that discusses gender, gender identity, gender expressions, sexual orientation, discrimination, harassment, bullying, intimidation, relationships, or family and does not discuss human reproductive organs and their functions.”

Therefore,” Wenkart wrote, “parents who disagree with the instructional materials related to gender, gender identity, gender expression and sexual orientation may not excuse their children from this instruction. However, parents are free to advise their children that they disagree with some or all of the information presented in the instructional program and express their views on these subjects to their children.”

So, in short, as long as actual reproduction is not discussed, government schools are free to brainwash children to support homosexuality, transgenderism, and more. Indeed, among other schemes, the California code requires affirmation of homosexuality and gender confusion while prohibiting “outdated gender norms.” In short, biblical morality is now banned at government school.

Carly Hoilman reports on the new developments:

California elementary school students could soon be the targets of progressive sexual indoctrination if new health guidelines are approved.

The guidelines, listed under the California Department of Education’s proposed Health Education Framework, include educational resources that teach children to reject gender stereotypes and embrace a rainbow of possible gender options. One recommended book calledWho Are You?teaches that there are at least 15 genders, and that it’s impossible to determine whether a baby is a boy, a girl or something else.

Fed Up Parents Organize ‘Sex Ed Sit Out’ to Protest ‘Gender-Bending Propaganda’ Taught in Schools

“Babies can’t talk, so grown-ups make a guess by looking at their bodies,” an excerpt reads.

One chapter in the proposed guidelines offers suggestions on how to explain sexuality with kindergartners.

“Discuss gender with kindergarteners by exploring gender stereotypes and asking open-ended questions, such as what are preferred colors, toys, and activities for boys/girls, and then challenging stereotypes if presented,” chapter three reads. “Throughout this discussion, show images of children around the same age who do not conform to typical gender stereotypes. Examples do not have to be exaggerated or overt. Simple differences, such as colors or toy preferences, can demonstrate acceptance of gender non-conformity.”

Newman goes on to elaborate more:

Then, the teacher should continue to confuse the children. “Throughout this discussion, show images of children around the same age who do not conform to typical gender stereotypes,” the instructions read. “Examples do not have to be exaggerated or overt. Simple differences, such as colors or toy preferences, can demonstrate acceptance of gender non-conformity.”

Of course, preaching this sort of madness to vulnerable and impressionable children captive in a government classroom has devastating effects. As The Newman Report documented last year, a study from the University of California, Los Angeles, found that more than one fourth of children in the state between the ages of 12 and 17 are “gender non-conforming.”

The new proposed guidelines, which are even more extreme than the previous ones, also call for encouraging middle-school students to fornicate with multiple people at the same time. “Some students may be non-monogamous and the term ‘partner(s)’ may be used to be more inclusive,” reads the material, which aims to normalize perversions that would have been unthinkable just a generation ago.

Among the examples offered is “polyamory,” which is defined as “the practice of, desire to, or orientation toward having consensual non-monogamous relationships (i.e. relationships that may include multiple partners).” Another option is “polyfidelity (which involves more than two people being in romantic and/or sexual relationships which is not open to additional partners), amongst many other set-ups.”

What exactly any of this perversion has to do with “health” was not made clear — especially since encouraging this sort of promiscuity and fornication leads to all sorts of venereal diseases, some of which can be deadly. Ironically, some of the sex propaganda is taught under the guise of preventing venereal disease.

On the gender-bending madness, the American College of Pediatricians has said that encouraging children to believe they can change genders by taking hormones and mutilating their genitals is “child abuse.” In other words, these schools are institutionalizing the abuse of children.

That’s exactly right!  And parents that stand for this and willingly submit their little ones to this perversion should be held accountable for child abuse, but they won’t be in a state that sanctions it.

This is just another reason why if you have your children in the public indoctrination centers known as public schools, you should protect them by getting them out and teaching them yourself at home, and you can do so for free by clicking here.  Stop making excuses for turning your children over to the state to become little statists, and start becoming a part of the revolution!

The Left’s Use of Intimidation to Silence Christians


Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann, who was lambasted after smiling in a viral video at a Native American activist, went on the “Today” show Wednesday to defend his reputation. (Photo: “Today” show)

If you’re Christian, shut up. That’s been the unmistakable message of our current culture in recent weeks.

Karen Pence has been lambasted for her decision to teach at a Christian school. Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, after asking a judicial nominee about his membership in the Catholic Knights of Columbus, has tied the organization to the alt right.”

And a group of teenage Catholic schoolboys waiting for a bus at the March for Life, who didn’t know the mob-approved way to handle a Native American activist walking up to them, are fighting for their reputations.

Of course, this isn’t really about Karen Pence, or judicial nominee Brian Buescher, or the Covington Catholic High boys. It’s about intimidating everyone else.

It’s telling the husband or wife of an up-and-coming lawmaker that if they want to teach at a school, it’s probably better they choose a non-Christian one, unless they want their spouse someday ensnared in a media cycle over LGBT discrimination.

It’s telling the law student who dreams of someday becoming a judge that no matter how appealing he finds joining a Catholic charitable organization, it’s probably better for his career ambitions if he doesn’t.

And it’s telling schools and students and parents that no matter if they are willing to deal with the expense and trouble of hauling dozens or hundreds of students to Washington, D.C., on buses and having them sleep on gym floors, it still might not be a good idea—because the students’ future reputations, careers, and college prospects could all be gone with one viral video.

No, that wouldn’t happen if the students came to Washington to fight for gun control or raise awareness of climate change.

Just if they’re there to speak up for the babies who can’t.

When President Donald Trump was elected—in a shock for conventional D.C. wisdom—it become obvious that there were plenty of silent Americans who, in the privacy of the ballot box, dared to defy the politically correct, woke cultural leaders of our time. But it’s not enough to vote.

I’m glad Karen Pence, the vice president’s wife, isn’t backing down and resigning. I’m thrilled Brian Buescher is remaining a member of the Knights of Columbus, and that Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., introduced a resolution saying there’s nothing wrong with a judge being in the Knights. I’m heartened that the Covington students are fighting back, and saying they did nothing wrong.

But they can’t do this all on their own.

About 70 percent of Americans are Christian, according to the Pew Research Center. They—and everyone who believes in religious freedom—need to start speaking up.

You don’t have to agree with Buescher’s judicial philosophy to say that in the United States, there should be no religious test for judges.

You don’t have to have attended a Catholic school or be pro-life to say that a group of teen boys being awkward around an activist—an activist who later that weekend tried to bring a group of protesters to disrupt a Catholic Mass at the basilica in D.C.—should not be a news story, much less a reputation destroyer.

You don’t have to agree with Immanuel Christian School’s faith tenets to defend Karen Pence’s right to choose the school where she wants to teach.

You know what breeds intolerance? Silence. It’s easy for someone to kvetch about the Covington boys or mock the second lady as a bigot at the water cooler if he has no reason to believe any other colleague will speak up. We need to take a lesson from the left’s playbook.

Here’s what liberals do really well: They share their stories. And they make it personal. We need to do the same.

Did your son or daughter go to the March for Life? Talk about it. Share how proud you were that they cared enough about the lives of unborn babies to be on a bus for 20 hours and sleep on a crowded gym floor.

And share how scared you are that they, too, could become targets of social media activists and mainstream media because they didn’t know the appropriate public relations strategy to deal with a protest.

Does it make you feel like an alien in your own country that what you hear from the pews on Sunday could make you ineligible to do certain jobs in our system? Express that anxiety. Tell the truth about how you don’t like being treated like a second-class citizen in your own nation.

Are you appalled that your mom’s job at a Christian school could get her branded as a bigot? Say that. Share the facts: Plenty of Christian denominations adhere to 2,000 years of sexual morality, and demand no sex outside of marriage—whether you’re straight or LGBT.

If we keep talking, things will change.

Because people know that if their colleague Kelly is pro-life, or their hair stylist Melissa is Christian, or their neighbor Bob teaches at a Christian school, they will think twice. That doesn’t mean they will agree with Kelly or Melissa or Bob. But it does mean they will realize it’s unfair to assume all pro-lifers hate women, or that all Christians hate LGBT people. They will realize it’s more complex than the woke leaders of social media say it is. And then we can have real discussions and real dialogues, person to person.

I get that it’s hard. I’m often more of a coward than I’d like to be—even with the job security of working at a conservative news outlet. It’s hard to speak up sometimes, especially if you’re scared people will judge you or there will be hidden consequences—promotions that never occur, networking that abruptly stops.

But we don’t have a choice.

Right now, thought leaders in the United States are working overtime to make it clear: Stand up for your Christian beliefs, your pro-life beliefs—and you will pay.

But we can rise up, too.

If there’s one thing we should have learned in this era of Trump, it’s that standing up to bullies works. And we need to—because there’s nothing American about a future where holding certain religious beliefs makes you a second-class citizen.

Today’s Ann Coulter Letter: “Break Ground, Not Promises”


Commentary by Ann Coulter | Posted: Jan 23, 2019 6:45 PM

Break Ground, Not Promises

Source: AP Photo/Daniel Ochoa de Olza

As days turned to weeks and weeks turned to months and months turned to years, and not 1 inch of the wall was built, the “3-D chess” crowd dwindled.  Sometimes Trump would concede he hadn’t built any part of the wall. Sometimes he would fib and claim it was being built. There’s no way to sugarcoat it: That was a lie.

Drug dealers, drunk drivers, criminals, welfare dependents and low-wage workers driving down American wages continued to flow across our border.  We are now past the midway point of Trump’s first term, maybe his only term. If Trump couldn’t come up with a legislative fix when he controlled both houses of Congress, he’s sure not going to now that he’s lost the House.

We are headed for another failed Republican presidency.

President George H.W. Bush promised, “Read my lips, no new taxes” — then raised taxes. President George W. Bush promised that America would not be “the world’s policeman” — then turned the United States into the world’s policeman.

Whether these promises weren’t kept out of bad faith, incompetence or changed minds is of no consequence. That will be a minor footnote for future historians to debate. All that matters is that it didn’t happen. That’s why Trump got elected.

But he still hasn’t started the wall.

By now, my erstwhile critics are getting the point. But I’m not sure the president is — a few weeks ago, he unfollowed me on Twitter. Trump seems to be mystified about what he needs to do to maintain the support of his most devoted backers. He’s saying the right things, isn’t he? He’s holding press conferences, giving Oval Office addresses and tweeting that he wants a wall.

Here’s what you haven’t done, Mr. President: You haven’t broken ground. You want your supporters back? BREAK GROUND TODAY.

You know those caravans marching north toward our border? They’re not giving speeches about how they’re coming north. They’re not tweeting about how they’re coming north. They’re not giving Oval Office addresses about how they’re coming north.

They’re coming north.

What you need to do today — not after the State of the Union address, not after the next GOP retreat, not after another meeting with the Democrats — is to start rolling construction trucks to the southern border.

When Obama wanted something done, he did it. After spending two years saying he didn’t have constitutional authority to amnesty Dreamers, he issued an executive order amnestying Dreamers.  Obama has a legacy — a terrible legacy, but a legacy nonetheless. We’re still living with that executive order today.

By contrast, Mr. President, you do have constitutional authority to defend the nation’s borders, as you have noted repeatedly. But you’ve chickened out. The only edifice you have built is constructed of tweets, press conferences and speeches.

Ironically, Obama was a man of action. The New York real estate tycoon is just a man of words.

Words don’t stop caravans. No one rushes to a caravan saying — WAIT! STOP! TRUMP IS ABOUT TO TWEET!

Are you sure you want to make a dangerous 700-mile journey through cartel-infested lands when you know that as soon as you get to the U.S. border, there could be a Donald Trump tweet awaiting you?

Obama assumed dictatorial powers, bypassing Congress to issue laws from the Oval Office. You would just be doing your job, Mr. President. BREAK GROUND TODAY.

The most fundamental responsibility of the U.S. president is to protect the nation’s sovereignty. It is not to ensure the safety of the Kurds or the Syrian Christians or Pakistani goat herders, but to ensure the safety and security of the American people. BREAK GROUND TODAY.

The Senate’s latest omnibus spending bill provides “not less than $15,000,000” for border security — in Pakistan. The border security of our own country has become a joke. BREAK GROUND TODAY.

Yesterday people crossed our border who will kill Americans. Today there are people crossing our border who will kill Americans. And tomorrow there will be more people crossing our border who will kill Americans. BREAK GROUND TODAY.
 
It’s great that you met with the Clemson football team, but while you were doing that, people were crossing the border who will kill Americans. BREAK GROUND TODAY.
 
Countless presidents and presidential candidates have vowed to stop illegal immigration. Good intentions, bad intentions — it doesn’t matter. They didn’t keep their promises. BREAK GROUND TODAY.

Fifty years from now, an American family will pile into the car to see the country and, while motoring by the Texas border, will slam on the brakes. Oh look, honey, here’s a historic site! They’ll blow the dust off a small plaque on a garden trellis that will read: “On this site, President Donald Trump built the impregnable southern border wall.”

Stanley, you have to step to the left — you’re blocking the whole thing!

There will be plenty of room in the Trump Presidential Library for the entire border wall, because the library will contain only two books, “The Art of the Deal,” and Trump’s follow-up book, “Never Mind.” BREAK GROUND TODAY.

Emergency powers or no emergency powers, on tomorrow night’s news we want to see helicopters circling the trucks headed to the border. BREAK GROUND TODAY.

They have a caravan; you have a caravan. They’re heading north; you head south. BREAK GROUND TODAY.

Cost: People who don’t like you will continue not to like you. Benefit: Your legacy will be — He kept Americans alive who would otherwise be dead. BREAK GROUND TODAY.

We’ve heard your speeches. We know you understand the crisis, and you know what needs to be done. But none of that will mean anything if you don’t take action — not in a month, not in a week, but today. BREAK GROUND TODAY.

Bombshell: WaPo Issues Nathan Phillips Correction, Says Never Served in Vietnam


Reported By Ben Marquis | January 22, 2019 at 5:13pm

After an incident involving Covington Catholic High School students following Friday’s March for Life in Washington D.C., an Native American activist and black supremacist protesters became emblematic of “fake news” complaints that have been lodged against the establishment media for decades.

Starting with a short snippet of video featuring the Native American activist — identified as Omaha tribe elder and Marine Corps veteran Nathan Phillips — banging a drum and chanting while locked in a standoff with a smiling young teen wearing a red MAGA hat, the media ran wild with accusations of racism and harassment against the elder by the students who had purportedly approached and surrounded him in an intimidating display of white privilege and social oppression.

Except, having rushed to judgment without waiting for all of the facts, much of the media was forced to walk back their initial reports by Sunday after other, longer videos emerged that painted an entirely different picture. It was the boys who had been harassed by the black supremacists and approached by Phillips, not the other way around, as had been implied at first.

The media had sought to demonize the students and portray Phillips as a victim, and countless outlets — including The Washington Post — reported that the abuse from the boys was extra terrible in light of the fact that Phillips was a combat veteran of the Vietnam War.  Except, the media has had to walk back that claim as well, as it has now been revealed that Phillips never served in Vietnam, though it is still maintained that he served as a Marine during the same time period.

The Washington Post issued a correction on Tuesday about Phillips to the hit piece against the MAGA hat-wearing boys that was first posted on Sunday morning. That correction reads: “Earlier versions of this story incorrectly said that Native American activist Nathan Phillips fought in the Vietnam War. Phillips served in the U.S. Marines from 1972 to 1976 but was never deployed to Vietnam.”

This is yet another huge factual error within the larger array of mistakes in the story that the media got wrong at first glance. It doesn’t appear that Phillips ever specifically described himself as a combat veteran — though he certainly remains fair game for criticism for his distorted version of events in several interviews following the incident. Yet, despite Phillips having never specifically said he was a combat veteran of the Vietnam era, that was most definitely insinuated — both implicitly and explicitly by some — in countless reports and tweets from media outlets and reporters.

CNN transcripts from their interview with Nathan Phillips say that he said he was a Vietnam War veteran, but the video interview shows him saying he is a “Vietnam times veteran.”

The folks over at a veteran-focused blog known as This Ain’t Hell took a closer look at the circumstances surrounding the media’s portrayal of the self-described “Vietnam times veteran.”

Without Phillips’ military service records to verify — that have been requested — the blog nevertheless proceeded to display several screenshots of media chyrons and tweets announcing Phillips as a war vet, again clearly implying that he had served in the conflict.

The blog further dug into several interviews of Phillips and even looked into old media accounts of Phillips from prior incidents over the years and found no evidence that he had ever described himself as a combat veteran, but did find several instances where potentially “over-zealous” reporters had assigned that specific honor to him.

On top of that, the blog also looked closely at his age — reported to be 64 — and compared that to the actual timeline of the Vietnam War. Phillips would have turned 18 right around the tail-end of the war in 1972/73, so there is only an exceptionally small window with little margin for error to account for his having graduated from high school, enlisting in the Marines, as well as graduating from basic training and additional training schools prior to being immediately shipped off to the war zone, were he to have actually served in the war.

Again, without his actual service records to provide verification, there is really no way to know for sure, but odds are Phillips served in the Marines during what is called the Vietnam era — which officially ended in 1975 — without having served in the combat zone.

To be sure, we here at Conservative Tribune are not knocking Phillips for his military service. Indeed, we commend him for his service and sacrifice to the nation, regardless of whether he served overseas or at home, during a time of war or peace.

Instead, we are throwing a sharp elbow in the direction of the mainstream media — especially The Washington Post — and all of the reporters who perpetuated the implication that he was a Vietnam War veteran who had actually fought in the war, which appears to have not been the case at all.

This was a story made huge by the media in large part because it was deceptively framed to fit the preconceived notions of liberals by portraying a Native American activist as an oppressed victim and a bunch of white, MAGA hat-wearing Catholic school boys as privileged aggressors, which was pretty much the opposite of what actually happened. The media should be ashamed of themselves, and minor corrections and half-hearted apologies aren’t going to cut it in making things right this time.

Hey Media(D): Some Things Don’t Add Up With Your Little Drummer Provocateur’s Dubious ‘Vietnam Service’


Written by Wes Walker on January 22, 2019

The Media shamed the Covington kids for ‘mocking a Vietnam Vet’ … did they get THAT part of the story wrong TOO?

Nathan Phillips is back in the media spotlight. Again.This time it’s over that drumming incident where he walked up to fifteen-year-old Nick Sandmann and stared him down while Nick smiled awkwardly, not sure of Phillip’s intentions.

His intentions, we learned later, were to run to the press (more than once) and complain about how he had been victimized by those MAGA-hat wearing teens. Except he had to keep changing his story in light of more video evidence about the actual event.

But for a full day, the Media and Blue-check Twitter warriors piled on the poor kids, calling for (so to speak) their heads on a platter. But they DID call for acts of specific violence, doxxing, expulsion and harm to relatives places of business. Some even waxed lyrically about how they wouldn’t object to the school burning down with all the kids in it, or a school shooting in THAT school. All because a protester walked up to a kid in a red cap and started banging a drum.

Even we made the mistake of at least giving a Veteran the benefit of the doubt, and believing that he may have an explanation for what was going on here other than malice. Judging by liberal his use of playing the victim and his willingness to dramatize and exaggerate the incident to make himself out to be a hero standing in front of dangerous people.

They were in the process of attacking these four black individuals,” Phillip said. “I was there and I was witnessing all of this … As this kept on going on and escalating, it just got to a point where you do something or you walk away, you know? You see something that is wrong and you’re faced with that choice of right or wrong. ”

Phillips said some of the members of the Black Hebrew group were also acting up, “saying some harsh things” and that one member spit in the direction of the Catholic students. “So I put myself in between that, between a rock and hard place,” he said.

But then, the crowd of mostly male students turned their anger towards Phillips.

“There was that moment when I realized I’ve put myself between beast and prey,” Phillips said. “These young men were beastly and these old black individuals was their prey, and I stood in between them and so they needed their pounds of flesh and they were looking at me for that.”

The crowd of students, some of whom wore MAGA caps, mocked Native Americans while chanting “Build the Wall” and using derogatory language, he said. The students had a “mob mentality” that “was scary,” Phillips said. “It was ugly, what these kids were involved in. It was racism. It was hatred. It was scary.”

Speaking from his niece’s home, Phillips said: “I’m a Marine Corps veteran and I know what that mob mentality can be like. That’s where it was at. It got to a point where they just needed something for them to … just tear them apart. I mean, it was that ugly.”

Phillips said he recalled “the looks in these young men’s faces … I mean, if you go back and look at the lynchings that was done (in America) … and you’d see the faces on the people … The glee and the hatred in their faces, that’s what these faces looked like.”
Source: ChicagoTribune

We’ve got a couple of observations here, (other than the parts that have already been completely refuted by the video)…

The ‘Beast and Prey’ thing doesn’t check out… at all, so he’s a liar right from the beginning. And the ‘Black Hebrew’ cultists were hurling insults at both the MAGA-hat wearing kids AND (before that) some of the Native activists, too, including saying Indian meant ‘savage’, which was funny when a scholar in their midst set straight on the history of the term.

And Covington lawyers could have a field day with the way he is still demanding expulsions of the teenage boys whose reputation smearing with a literal equivalent to lynch mobs.

And because he’s Native, people are expected to walk on eggshells about calling out any lies, lest they be condemned for racism in the process. Truth is, if we had lower expectations of his honesty and integrity than anyone who ISN’T Native, THAT would be racist.

He’s got the same expectation of integrity as anyone else. And he invoked his military service as to how he knew what a mob mentality looked like. He invoked it again in the CNN interview that was so scathingly judgmental of the High School students:

And it’s because I’m a veteran — I’m a Vietnam veteran — that these two groups even have the right in this country to have protests, to have conflicting opinions. CNN

The guy who claims to have defended their right to free speech sure didn’t think very highly in that interview of their right to actually EXERCISE it, does he?

Moving on…

Which military service, precisely, was Phillips referring to? Is he claiming to have seen something ‘Winter-Soldier-y’ in Vietnam?

Hollywood has gone a long way to tagging the entire American Military Service in Vietnam with a reputation of an unruly mob, rather than treating as specific disreputable incidents those darker moments of history. (Thank you, John Kerry.)

All the leftist sites piling on to praise Phillips and denounce Nick Sandmann made a point of referring to Phillip’s military service. But they didn’t just call it MILITARY service, they called him a Vietnam vet, which made the alleged disrespect the MAGA-hats gave him so much more heinous.

But IS he a Vietnam vet?

Weasel words are often a BIG red flag with this sort of thing, especially when we already have valid reasons to doubt the man’s honesty.

What was the quote?

A careful reading of Mr. Phillips‘ own descriptions does not make clear if he ever set foot in Vietnam. Instead, he has used much more careful language claiming he is a “Vietnam times veteran,” an ambiguous phrasing that led many media accounts to conclude he was a combat veteran.
Source: WashingtonTimes

Ask Dick Blumenthal whether there’s a difference between serving DURING that period of time and serving IN Vietnam. He could tell you that the public doesn’t take kindly to having their heartstrings abused.

What ELSE has he said about Vietnam?

He raised a wooden staff adorned with nine eagle feathers in the air as he addressed his security team, volunteers who had stepped back into familiar roles guarding gates at camp. They were outfitted in head-to-toe camouflage, masked by bandanas printed with the word Resist, and bearing walkie-talkies. “I have a relative here who said he’d lead the way and scout ahead for us,”Phillips continued, his voice breaking. “You know, I’m from Vietnam times. I’m what they call a recon ranger. That was my role. So I thank you for taking that point position for me.” — Source: Democratic Underground

We have enough readers with military experience that we can let them fight over whether there is any way for a Marine to call himself a ‘Recon Ranger’ without being completely full of Sh-t. But did he actually set foot in ‘Nam?

The math doesn’t look right. Born in 1955, the earliest he could have enlisted would be at the age of 17… in 1972. What was happening in Vietnam in 1972? As far as a new recruit was concerned, not much.

According to multiple news accounts, the activist is 64 years old, which means he would have been 18 years old in 1973, the last year any U.S. combat units were stationed in Vietnam. Mr. Phillips also claims to be a Marine veteran, although the last Marine combat units left Vietnam in 1971. — Source: Washington Times

From The Marine Corps Official History:

But by the end of 1970, more Marines were leaving than arriving as replacements. On 14 April 1971, III MAF redeployed to Okinawa, and two months later the last ground troops, the 13,000 men of the 3d MAB, flew out from Da Nang.

Although Marine combat units were no longer in Vietnam, Marine advisors remained to assist the South Vietnamese. During the North Vietnamese 1972 Easter Offensive, Marine advisors played a pivotal role in repelling the Communist attacks. Captain

Ok…

So, about this guy who had been wearing the ‘Resist’ Bandana who picked a fight with a gaggle of MAGA-hat wearing Teens… … if he never set foot in Vietnam, why is he very carefully wording himself as a ‘Vietnam Era’ Veteran, while talking about ‘Mob Mentalities’ that he has supposedly seen, and claiming to have been a “Recon Ranger’ who scouts ahead?

There are a LOT of holes in this professional protester’s story, and he’s not taking calls from anyone who might ask him the hard questions. Maybe someone in the ‘Mainstream’ media can make up for wrongly shaming those kids over ‘disrespecting a veteran’ by finding out what his REAL service record looks like? Is this someone who served in peacetime but wants the respect given to those whose lives were in real danger? Was he honorably discharged? Did he even serve at all?

He’s the one who is bringing attention to his service record. If he weren’t lying about other things, we wouldn’t have even noticed the inconsistencies. Now he has us wondering if he was lying about that too.

If anyone has answers, we’d sure like to hear them.

Dear ‘Media’: Why No Interest In The VILE Black Hebrews And Their Racism & Homophobia?


Written by Wes Walker on January 22, 2019

It had all the makings of a good old-fashioned media scandal, but for some reason, the media avoided it like the plague. Imagine a much-hated activist group, maybe Westboro Baptist, picking a fight with a Native group and calling them savages. Now imagine them turning on teenage kids who had the misfortune of standing nearby, hurling racial insults at them before calling them F-gg-ts, and the children of incest. Imagine them trying to whip up that hatred in other bystanders — including the Native group — by saying THOSE are the people you should hate. Now imagine that encouragement caused a confrontation between the other two groups — at the National Capital — that became a national news event.

Do you think there would be ANY way they would ignore that part of the story?

Throw in a monologue about how women should know their place, for good measure. Could anyone POSSIBLY resist a story like that?

Are you kidding? We’d know every single lurid detail about that cult, right down to the last parking ticket or juicy rumor of infidelity within 90 minutes of the story breaking. There WAS a story just like that, but they refused to touch it.

There’s even a ‘Cultural Appropriation’ angle, which the Left LOVES to talk about in any other situation. But this is one of those ‘enemy of my enemy is my friend’ situations.

The religious cult in question isn’t the now-mostly-defunct Westboro dumpster fire. No, but they’re every bit as wholesome. Much like Westboro, they are that wonderfully self-righteous hybrid of Carnival Barker and Angry SJW Protester. This group calls itself the Black Hebrews.

But just like ‘Christian Science’ has nothing to do with either Christianity or Science, these Black Hebrews have nothing that actually marks them as Jewish or even Christian in their beliefs or behavior. And if they’d like to play the same game Pocahontas did with the DNA test, they are more than welcome to try. It would be good for a laugh. We’re guessing this is one DNA test that even Elizabeth Warren could win. We’re betting even she has a higher chance of having some trace of Jewish ancestry than this crowd of misfits and clowns. Which is a pretty good trick for someone who’s never claimed to be Jewish.

That checks off the ‘appropriation’ box in the Leftist scorecard.

And you know that ‘Native Vietnam Veteran’ with the drum (?) that the Media(D) got so worked up over this weekend? His group appears in this story. The ‘Black Hebrews’ (this one happened to say he’s Puerto Rican) are shouting the ‘Truth of the Holy Bible’.

At the :48 second mark, he’s Blasting Native Indians over their improper religious practices. “You’re not supposed to worship Eagles, Buffalo, (inaudible), all kinds of animals. This is the reason why the Lord took away your land.” If ANY other person said those words around a Leftist in ANY other context, you would see someone cutting to commercial, or yelling about racism, bigotry, and religious expression, they would flip their lid.

But in this story?

Forget it, they’ve got bigger fish to fry. He’s not done. “We’re from here. We’re natives too. My people are so-called Puerto Ricans, we are from the tribe of Ephraim’

Then he tells her that’s her nationality. She’s “not” Indian, Indian means ‘savage’ he says … to a native woman. Then he tries to build bridges between his group and the natives, by saying they have a common enemy. He turns the attention to those ‘pompous bastards over there wearing the Make America Great Again hats’. ‘Why you not angry at them?’

Then he turns the camera on himself (2:25) and says “this is the problem Israel, there’s always our women coming around with they (sic) loud mouth, thinking they can run and bogart things, thinking they can come and distract things with their loud-ass mouth cus they not used to dealing with no real men. And you think we supposed to bow down to you damn emotions when you come an you run your mouth and distract what we doin, instead of coming wi’ order” Then he yelled at a woman calling her something that sounded like ‘a $5 Indian” and then called her a ‘fake’ and not a child of God. Then he had the audacity of accusing HER of trying to take HIS culture.

“Culture-Vulture.” “Blue-eyed demon.”

Get the sense that we’re dealing with a real ‘winner’ here?

At about 4:15 he started calling the ‘crackers’ to come over into the ‘Lions Den’. The speaker started threatening children when he “You dirty-ass crackers, your day coming”. Even the black guys hanging out with the schoolkids were being called ‘little Kanye N*****s’.

“Simple C**n- yays.” (Said in a way that it would sound like Kanye) They walked right up to the kids and started insulting them at about the 5:15 mark.

They tell the Hispanics and Negros that they have no business calling themselves a Roman Catholic. (Like anyone asked THEIR permission in the matter)

Tries to pick a fight with a black man for not agreeing with them that his REAL fight ought to be with the ‘racist-ass crackas’ behind him… calls him Uncle Tom.

Peckerwoods (7:05) … walks right up to the teens, arms’ length away filming their faces saying ‘look at all these dusty-ass crackers’… Big ‘man’ brags that he intimidated them enough that they walked away at 7:28… look like they about to shoot up a school right now 7:30… you owe reparations 7:45… biggest terrorists are white 8:05… calls divine curses on their families 8:14… calls them incest babies 8:24… (at about 9 min mark they’ve had enough abuse and start drowing it out with pep cheers)…. he says they have lice… calls them goddam dog…

Kid takes off shirt to lead cheer… ‘put a bra on’ 9:36

(That’s “body-shaming”, isn’t it, feminists?)

Other clips had sexual slurs in there too. F****t, for example.

And what did Nathan Phillips, the drummer, claim he was doing with his drum?

CNN: What did it feel like that you were witnessing?
Phillips: Oh, what I was witnessing was just hate? Racism? Well, hate. What I’m saying is that when these folks came there, these other folks were saying their piece, and these others they got offended with it because they were both just expressing their own views. And if it’s racism, that’s what it was because the folks that were having their moment there, they were saying things that I don’t know if I agreed with them or not, but some of it was educational, and it was truth, and it was history about religious views and ideologies, but these other folks, the young students, they couldn’t see it. They had one point of view, it seemed, and that was that their point of view was the only point of view that was worthwhile. And that’s now what I was feeling.
Source: CNN [emphais added]

I, for one, would be interested to know which of these ‘Black Hebrew’ views he agrees with. Their misogyny? Their criticisms of his ancestral religion? Indian meaning ‘savage’? Bragging that you could intimidate a class of fifteen-year-old kids? Fat-shaming a kid? Accusing them of being the products of incest? Which is it? Or is it the unchecked hatred toward white people who vote the ‘wrong’ way.

Sorry, bro. You can’t brag about defending people’s freedom as a vet and hate them for exercising it the ‘wrong’ way. The whole point of freedom is that some other jackwagon doesn’t get to tell you how to exercise it. Not even if he (may have) served in Vietnam.

In shutdown fight with Trump, Dems reject immigration deal they once sponsored


Reported By Alex Pappas | Fox News

But now that President Trump has offered to essentially include it as part of a compromise to re-open shuttered government agencies, those same Democrats are rejecting it — unwilling to trade border wall funding for the immigrant protections they have long sought.

“We must move on the Bridge Act quickly to protect DREAMers,” Illinois Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin said back in December 2016.

TRUMP OFFERS IMMIGRATION COMPROMISE TO END PARTIAL SHUTDOWN; DEMS COOL TO OFFER

Durbin, along with South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, unveiled the bill before Trump took office; others who signed on as sponsors included California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein. The president would eventually try to end the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that shielded the 700,000 immigrants illegally brought to the United States as children from deportation, leaving the program in legal limbo ever since.

On Saturday, though, Trump announced he was prepared to back a three-year extension of protections for DACA recipients, and extend protections for 300,000 recipients of the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) program — which protects immigrants from designated countries with conditions that prevent nationals from returning safely. The BRIDGE Act, likewise, included a three-year DACA extension.

But Durbin, like virtually every other congressional Democrat, said he would oppose Trump’s offer considering it’s attached to $5.7 billion for a barrier on the southern border with Mexico.

“I cannot support the proposed offer as reported and do not believe it can pass the Senate,” Durbin said, adding he is “ready to sit down at any time after the government is opened and work to resolve all outstanding issues.”

“He talked about protecting those already in the program,” Durbin said. “Our bill talked about those eligible for the program.”

But Republicans accused Democrats of turning their back on a deal they once supported.

“@POTUS offers to support 2 bills sponsored by Dems (TPS & DACA extensions)in exchange for Border Security (something Democrats claim to support) & the immediate response from Dem leaders is No?” Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., tweeted.

“Walls are not immoral,” he said, adding that a wall “will save many lives and stop drugs from pouring into our country.”

While the Democratic leadership in Congress has come out against the compromise, they are facing some pressure to deal. The editorial board of the Washington Post over the weekend called on Democrats to come back to the table. In an editorial titled “Make a deal. Save the dreamers,” the paper argued Trump “should not be rewarded for having taken the government hostage” but said Trump’s offer to compromise “should be welcomed.”

Meanwhile, some in Trump’s conservative base are coming out against the deal — signaling significant concessions were put forward over the weekend — with commentator Ann Coulter and others accusing the president of offering “amnesty.”

The plan would also allocate $800 million for drug detection technology to secure ports of entry, 2,750 new border agents and law enforcement professionals, and 75 new immigration judges to reduce an immense backlog of asylum requests.

The partial government shutdown has dragged on for a month now and led to hundreds of thousands of federal workers being furloughed or working without pay.

Trump has said he will not sign a bill to open the government unless it includes that wall funding, while Democrats have refused to consider the $5.7 billion figure, instead offering $1.3 billion for general border security.

FBI Bruce Ohr TESTIFIES: FBI Tried to Bring Down Trump


Reported by Kevin Jackson |

Rep. Adam Schiff

What happens when the reason you gave for investigating Trump falls apart?

We are about to find out. Because according to The Daily Caller,

Justice Department official Bruce Ohr’s testimony about his meetings with FBI officials regarding dossier author Christopher Steele severely undercuts claims made in 2018 by California Rep. Adam Schiff and his fellow Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee. Ohr told lawmakers Aug. 28, 2018, he briefed top FBI officials Andrew McCabe and Lisa Page in early August 2016, just days after he met with Steele, a former British spy who was investigating then-candidate Donald Trump. Ohr testified he told McCabe and Page about his interactions with Steele, who was working at the time for Fusion GPS, a Democrat-funded opposition research firm.

The FBI relied heavily on Steele’s unverified dossier to obtain Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

But there is more to the dossier, based on Steele’s admission to Ohr.

The article continues,

In a memo dated Feb. 2, 2018, House Intelligence Republicans, led by then-Chairman Devin Nunes, asserted the FBI filed to disclose in their FISA applications Ohr’s wife, Nellie, worked for Fusion GPS. They also noted in the so-called Nunes memo that the FISA applications do not reveal Steele’s anti-Trump bias. Ohr claimed Steele told him during a meeting Sept. 23, 2016, he was “desperate” that Trump not win election.

So we have a fake dossier, presented by a foreigner who hated Donald Trump. And the FBI knew this information. Yet, they still continued to pursue FISA warrants.

No longer can the FBI pretend they were unaware until later, because Ohr testified he had shared details of his contacts with Steele with the FBI prior to the election.

Let’s review the cast of characters and where they fit past and present.

In addition to the meeting in early August 2016, Ohr met in late September 2016 or early the next month with Page, FBI counterintelligence deputy chief Peter Strzok, and Justice Department officials Bruce Swartz, Zainab Ahmad and Andrew Weissmann. Ahmad and Weissmann are currently working on the special counsel’s investigation.

Unbelievably, Mueller’s team remains comprised of people who undoubtedly were out to get Donald Trump, pre and post-election. Still, Democrats pretend that Mueller and team remain unbiased?

Although Mueller will eventually become the fall guy for the Democrats, let’s not forget what Democrats said of Ohr’s role in this, as well as their contention about the timeline.

The FBI obtained its first FISA against Page on Oct. 21, 2016, weeks after that meeting.

Ohr’s testimony conflicts with House Intelligence Democrats’ claim in a memo released Feb. 24, 2018, that served as a rebuttal to the Nunes memo.

That document sought to defend the FBI’s handling of the Steele dossier and its applications for the first FISA warrant.

Democrats asserted Ohr did not meet with the FBI until after the 2016 election and thus had no opportunity to tell the FBI his wife worked for Fusion GPS. He was also unable to relay that Steele had communicated anti-Trump bias to him.

“[Republicans] mischaracterize[s] Bruce Ohr’s role, overstates the significance of his interactions with Steele, and misleads about the timeframe of Ohr’s communication with the FBI,” the so-called Schiff memo reads.

To put this simply, the FBI used the Steele dossier as evidence against Carter page. But when pressed, they claimed to have only been briefed on the dossier post-election.

I can’t wait to see bug-eyed Adam Schiff try to talk his way out of this one.

Feminist Rips the ‘Women’s March’ for Not Addressing Any of the Important Issues



Reported By Karista Baldwin | January 20, 2019 at 7:49am

One self-described radical feminist is speaking out against the Women’s March for its failing to focus on actual women’s issues.

Phyllis Chesler, a long-time feminist and a professor of psychology and women’s studies, called the march “a con job” and criticized it for its unfit leadership.

In an opinion piece published by Fox News on Saturday, Chesler voiced her disapproval of the latest wave of feminism.  She wrote that the marches are “stage events, not revolutions,” and lamented the loss of “a vibrant and radical feminist movement.”

Now 78, Chesler is considered part of “second-wave feminism,” the movement that ushered in the sexual revolution (and legalized abortion). She believes that the current feminist movement is no longer really concerned with women’s issues. Instead, feminism is now about intersectionality and identity politics, at the cost of real women’s liberation.

“The Women’s March addresses things like ‘immigration reform’ and ‘police violence against black men;’ they say they are ‘anti-racists,’ more than they are ‘anti-sexists;’ and they prioritize ‘queer and transgender’ politics, but never plain old garden variety women’s issues,” Chesler wrote.

She complained about how the leaders of the Women’s March are branded like actors and reality show celebrities, unlike the members of grassroots movements Chesler was a part of. Chesler expressed disapproval of modern feminism’s convoluted identity politics, where members get points for their minority statuses. She also bashed the march for its anti-Semitism, pointing to claims that Jewish leaders were pushed out of the group. Chesler believes that the few Jewish members of the march’s committee, “have mainly been chosen as window dressing and as proof of intersectionality.’”

She argued that current feminist leaders’ obsession with inclusiveness trumps their concern with women’s rights in Third World countries. Chesler called out Women’s March leader Linda Sarsour for failing to condemn the human rights abuses in Muslim states.

“Sex trafficking? Child marriage? FGM? Forced face veiling? Honour killing? None of these issues are being addressed by the American Women’s March leadership,” Chesler wrote.

Many conservatives have voiced similar confusion over the broad range of issues that are now being grouped under the name of “feminism.” However, the fact that Chesler’s criticism comes from an old-school feminist’s perspective says a lot about how far gone the modern feminist movement has come. The left is imploding on itself. Liberals can’t sustain coherence with their identity politics-focused model because it’s inherently divisive. Leftists compete with each other to see who’s more oppressed, and bash anyone they deem “privileged.” They demonize Americans by carelessly throwing around labels like “racist” and “Nazi,” and are therefore deathly afraid of the labels being turned on them.

As Chesler wrote, this comes at the price of real crises that need attention. Tied up in their own identity politics, liberals are often silent on the issues they should be helping, like the sexist practices rampant in radical Islam.

Feminism is no longer feminist enough for people like Chesler. Some African-Americans are no longer considered “black enough” for liberals. Prominent gays and lesbians are criticized for not advocating for gay rights in the politically correct way. And even old-line feminists are starting to notice.

Free Posters! Just Add Your Own Trump-Hate Slogan


Reported By Tiffany Layne |

#TeamKJ; #KevinJackson

Liberalism on the university level has long-been out of control.

Instead of teaching young minds to be free thinkers, they are taught to follow-the-leader. Even when the leader is wearing a ridiculous vagina hat and hollering a bunch of socialist nonsense.

But hey, that’s what higher education is all about these days. We can’t say the downward spiral of Wackademia started with Trump’s Administration, because, frankly universities fell to leftism long ago. However, once Trump won the presidency, things escalated to a new level of ridiculousness.

As Campus Reform recently reported:

Students on campuses across the country are being offered opportunities to prepare posters for next Saturday’s Women’s March events scheduled to occur in multiple cities, with one of those colleges even providing students with the supplies.

At Iowa State University, students are encouraged to stop by the union and be inspired by a playlist of Beyonce, Nina Simone, and Gloria Gaynor as they make posters with materials provided at no cost to the attendees. Students will also have the chance to pick up a feminist button or make their own for $0.50.

At the University of California, Berkeley, the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive will offer an opportunity to make posters with artist Masako Miki, who is currently a solo exhibitor there. Miki has already commissioned a print to commemorate the 2019 Women’s March. Miki’s art piece continues “the tradition of collaborating with artists and activists to create political poster art using the museum’s Risograph print resource,” according to the event’s webpage.

But don’t let the promises of political art give you some warm fuzzy 1960s peace rally feelings. Believe me, these aren’t your mama’s protests.

According to Breitbart:

While there may be several coinciding Women’s Marches occurring across the country, not all of them will go on as originally planned. Organizers of the California Women’s March have decided to cancel their January event, citing “overwhelmingly white” participants as their reason.

Moreover, several Women’s March leaders — such as Carmen Perez, Linda Sarsour, and Tamika Mallory — have recently fallen under scrutiny for their association with the proud anti-Semite and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

But exactly what are these students protesting? Many of them can’t even tell the difference between an Obama quote and a Trump quote. In fact, liberals are so brain-washed to hate Trump, they automatically pounce on an idea that seems to be Trump-related. It doesn’t matter whether or not the issue has merit.

As Fox News reported:

Students at American University reacted unfavorably to calls for increased border security to stem the flow of illegal immigrants, expressing shock that prominent Democrats have agreed with the idea in the past.

Campus Reform’s Cabot Phillips visited the university’s Washington, D.C. campus amid the ongoing border funding battle and partial government shutdown.

He presented students with several quotes that sounded a lot like President Trump’s speeches, but actually came from then-Senator Barack Obama, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Hillary Clinton — including:

“Illegal Immigration is wrong, plain and simple. Until the American people are convinced we will stop future flows of illegal immigration, we will make no progress.” – Schumer, 2009

“We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented and unchecked” – Obama, 2005

“I voted numerous times when I was a senator to spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in. And I do think you have to control your borders.” –  Clinton, 2015

Students described the quotes as “dehumanizing,” “problematic” and “jingoist,” with one student dubbing it “hateful speech” and another claiming the comments contained “racial biases.”

Pelosi Comes Face to Face with Victims of Illegal Immigration…Her Response is HORRID


Reported By

Nancy Pelosi

Even though I imagine that no one reading this has forgotten, there are currently 800,000 of our fellow Americans being asked to work without pay because the ruling class cretins in the DC Swamp can’t get along. That’s nearly a million Americans on the rice and beans diet, or worse, going hungry.  All because the democrats decided that they couldn’t support anything that Donald Trump wants to do because they signed up for some phony “resistance” thing the millennials were putting together.

Before it was “cool” to hate Donald Trump, the democrats were pretty gung-ho about the whole “border wall” thing.

Trending: Democratic Senator Says We’re Headed Toward INDICTMENT of POTUS!

Now, as the voice of the people has been focused on the single, solitary subject of the border wall, there is no time like the present for those of us with vested interest in immigration policy to do our damnedest. This is precisely the attitude of a group of “Angel Moms” who stormed into Nancy Pelosi’s office today to demand the democrats negotiate an end to the shutdown by providing the funding necessary for a physical barrier at the border.

The “Angel Moms” had a clear message for the press after being denied the ability to speak with their elected officials.

“It’s a slap, it’s a stab, it’s a kick in the gut, in the groin,” Sabine Durden, whose son Dominic was struck dead in 2012 by an illegal alien, said of Pelosi’s and other Democrats’ decision not to meet with Angel Mothers.

“It’s not a matter of if you’re going to be affected by illegal alien crime, it’s when you are going to be affected,” replied Mary Ann Mendoza, whose 32-year-old police officer Brandon Mendoza was killed by a drunk illegal alien driving on the wrong way down a Mesa, Arizona highway.

Radio host Rose Tennent, who appeared to be filming the protest, asked the women how it feels to tell their story, only to be refused a meeting with Pelosi. Several Angel Moms said they felt “angry” and “insulted.”

“If you can talk all that talk, why can you walk all that walk,” Durden said of Democrats with harsh words for President Trump’s border security proposals. “If you’re that tough, come see me. Come see all of us in one room. No press, just us, just for two minutes.”

Then, for the kicker…

“What’s interesting is, literally, there’s a wall between you and Nancy,” Tennent then noted.

 

Texas Authorities Arrest Another Illegal, This Time Accused of Sex Assault on 11-Year-Old


Reported By Kara Pendleton | January 16, 2019 at 10:29am

URL of the original posting site: https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/texas-authorities-arrest-another-illegal-sex-assault-11-year-old/

It seems that when it is politically expedient, liberals claim to deeply care about women and children. But it also seems that on a regular basis, their actions say otherwise.

Yet another example of this has hit the news. It began with the sexual assault of an 11-year-old child in Conroe, Texas, according to authorities.

KHOU reported that the 30-year-old man accused of the crime was arrested and is being held due to not only the alleged crime, but also his legal status.

Details of the alleged sexual assault were not available, but the immigration history of the suspect, Jose Manuel Tiscareno Hernandez, definitely was. An illegal alien living in the United States, he has already been deported to Mexico a number of times.

In fact, if authorities hadn’t caught Hernandez when they did, he had planned on fleeing back to Mexico, according to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.

A media advisory issued by the sheriff’s office stated that two search warrants had been issued as part of the investigation. The first was to search his home. He was not at home at the time, but that is when they got the information about his plan to flee across the border.

The second warrant was issued for authorities to search a different residence to collect evidence.

Hernandez was finally arrested on Saturday, KHOU reported.

The various authorities involved in the investigation included the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Special Victims Unit and SWAT, the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office, and the FBI. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the U.S. Marshals Service also played a role in his capture, according to the news release.

Not every illegal alien commits other crimes once over the border. But in regard to border security and a wall, as the Democrats so often say, “if even one life can be saved, it’s worth it.” So, how many lives, particularly those of the women and children they claim to love and advocate for, must be damaged or lost before they follow up on their claims? If even one can be saved, isn’t it worth it by their own logic?

These stories of illegal aliens committing other crimes once here are being reported far too often. It’s almost daily that we read or hear about yet another illegal alien being arrested for other, usually violent, crimes.

It needs to stop. And Democrats need to do more than talk. It is time to fund the wall and stop the insanity. It is time to actually protect the men, women and children of America. Isn’t that part of their job description? They don’t seem to think so.

Instead of working on a deal with President Donald Trump, Democrats took a holiday vacation. Then, barely after getting back from that, a number of them were off to Puerto Rico to party with lobbyists and watch the musical hit “Hamilton.” That’s how much they care about innocent women and children. That’s how much they care about doing the job Americans elected and pay them to do.

Hey Pelosi: ‘Suddenly’ You’re Not So Flippant About Security, Eh?


Written by Steve Bowers on January 17, 2019

Pelosi has no sense of humor. When other people take her words at face value, she doesn’t get the joke. Walls are an ‘immorality’ are they? California is a ‘Sanctuary’ State, is it? So security and private property are no big deal.

If you say so…

You heard about that publicity stunt when Loomer and a bunch of illegals jumped the fence at Pelosi’s place, didn’t you? HER security wasn’t as welcoming as the Democrats who live in their gated communities seem to be toward illegal aliens flooding into the country.

Hey Dems: THIS Was Discovered On A Rancher’s Property… Is Border Security A Priority NOW? (Video)


Written by Wes Walker on January 17, 2019

Nancy and Co dismiss the importance of stemming immigration — does THIS raise any red flags? A rancher says she’s found prayer rugs on her property, and that there has been a spike in “OTM” (other-than-Mexican) illegal entry into America. Is that a problem?

 

“There’s a lot of people coming in not just from Mexico,” the rancher said. “People, the general public, just don’t get the terrorist threats of that. That’s what’s really scary. You don’t know what’s coming across. We’ve found prayer rugs out here. It’s unreal. It’s not just Mexican nationals that are coming across.”

Her comments were part of a larger conversation about how many in the region believe migrants are coming to the U.S. illegally from all over the world, not just Central America.

Border Patrol and its parent agency, Customs and Border Protection, did not respond to multiple interview requests. But CBP’s Arizona region issued a statement on Twitter Wednesday that said agents had arrested people from across the world over the past five days.

Here’s another, related video from the same State along the border:

What makes that part of the border so vulnerable?

They’re remote, with wide open spaces, no local police department, and no physical obstacle preventing people from crossing.

Even PBS has picked up on it, as recently as December 18th, 2018, posting this story only four days before the partial government shutdown began over this very issue.

Headline as follows:
U.S. officials baffled by large migrant groups flocking to remote New Mexico border crossing

Large numbers of Guatemalan families and unaccompanied children are surrendering to U.S. immigration agents in an extremely remote and dangerous stretch of New Mexico desert, a new smuggling route that has baffled authorities.

We’ve got an identified border crossing at a relatively undefended stretch of border — which puts both residents and trespassers in real danger. We were discussing it at a national level literally days before the shutdown.

But despite news like that, or news like this:

Pelosi and Schumer refuse to fund border security anyway. And if PRAYER rugs are turning up at the border..?

In our post-9/11 world, what motives should we ascribe to Muslims and other “OTM” entrants who are avoiding lawful ports of entry into America?

Well, you don’t have to watch “Sicario 2: Day of the Soldato” to imagine those implications.

However desperate the Democrats are for any short-term political gains their open-border policy might give them, they do NOT want that kind of blood on their hands.

Just build the damned wall already.

This ‘People Who Don’t Want A Border Wall’ Meme Needs To Go VIRAL


Written by Wes Walker on January 17, 2019

If you want to see Democrats torn between winning their Shutdown Showdown and saving their skin for 2020, show them this meme.

We can’t take credit for this meme, it was posted on Instagram by the user ‘dc_draino’. But we sure can agree with and promote the hell out of it. (And you can too!)

Do drug cartels want open borders? Yes.

Do sex traffickers want open borders? Yes.

Do smugglers want open borders? Yes.

Does MS-13 want open borders? Yes.

Do rapists that prey upon the vulnerable border-crossers want open borders? Yes.

They even said so in a memo of their own.

The Center for American Progress (CAP) Action Fund memo, which circulated Monday, called on Democrats to “refuse to offer any votes for Republican spending bills that do not offer a fix for Dreamers and instead appropriate funds to deport them.”

The memo from the left-leaning think tank also said that protecting DACA is not only a “moral imperative” but also a “critical component” in winning elections.

“The fight to protect Dreamers is not only a moral imperative, it is also a critical component of the Democratic Party’s future electoral success,” the memo read.

It finished, “If Democrats don’t try to do everything in their power to defend Dreamers, that will jeopardize Democrats’ electoral chances in 2018 and beyond.”

Why would anyone, of any party POSSIBLY be in favor of open borders?

What difference would that make? Oh, nothing much, just a permanent expansion of the Left’s political power base.

One electoral news site gives us an explanation of what counting illegals does to the electoral college numbers, including an interactive map:

Here’s how the electoral map would look, based on 2013 Census estimates, and using 2016 election results, if only citizens were counted. […]

As we found at the time, “11 states would be impacted. The big loser would be California, which would see 4 of its 55 electoral votes trimmed away. No other state was impacted by more than one electoral vote. FL, NY and TX would lose one each, while seven states (LA, MO, MT, NC, OH, OK, VA) would gain one.” In terms of the 2016 election, Donald Trump would have won an additional four electoral votes, giving him a 310-228 victory, vs. the actual 306-232 result.*

“Fundamentally Transforming,” indeed. Into their own perpetual power base, whether we want it or not.

Just like the Big Tech Companies said they would in the article endorsed by their own management:

Today’s Ann Coulter Letter: White Supremacists Ate My Homework


Commentary by Ann Coulter  | 

By finally returning to the issue that won him the election, President Trump once again has a winning hand. That’s why we’re hearing so much about “white supremacy” this week. Liberals lie all the time, but when they know they’re vulnerable they lie even more than all the time. They’re vulnerable on immigration. Even heroic, nonstop lying doesn’t help — as CNN has discovered.

So, naturally, the media have turned to their larger project of relentlessly trying to discredit conservatives as “white supremacists.” Unfortunately for them, apart from a few crackpots — whom I assume exist in a country of 320 million people — there are no “white supremacists.” There were white supremacists 50 years ago, and they were all Democrats. (See my book Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama.)

Today, “white supremacy” is nothing but a comfortable fantasy the left developed to explain its sick preoccupation with white people. Talk about a manufactured crisis! The same people who love to snicker about Fox News viewers worrying about Sharia law sweeping the country are convinced that mythical “white supremacists” are hiding under every bed.

The whole concept is bogus. In my life, I’ve encountered a number of white people — some of them are my best friends. I’ve never heard any of them suggest that whites should rule over other races. None of them has argued that a substandard white person should get a job over a more competent person just because he’s white — you know, what every other group openly advocates for itself.

There is a whole swath of journalists who have decided that instead of investigating relevant news, they will spend their time doing oppo-research on prominent conservatives, hoping against hope to call them “racists.” If the facts don’t fit, they’ll make them up. The New York Times’ Maureen Dowd once famously imagined a Republican congressman calling Obama “boy.”

This week, Newsweek’s Nina Burleigh (“I’d be happy to give (Bill Clinton) a b—job just to thank him for keeping abortion legal”) casually asked to interview me about “white identity politics.” I have nothing to do with “white identity politics.” I don’t know anyone who knows anyone who even knows what that means. (Nor do I know anyone who’s seen a copy of Newsweek in at least a decade.) When will we get around to talking about the media’s actual hatred of whites?

Last year, The New York Times hired Sarah Jeong, a Korean journalist who has posted such venomous anti-white tweets as:

“White men are bullshit.”

“(F)**k white women lol.”

“White people have stopped breeding. (Y)ou’ll all go extinct soon. (T)hat was my plan all along.”

“Dumbass f**king white people marking up the internet with their opinions like dogs pissing on fire hydrants.”

“#CancelWhitePeople.”

“Are white people genetically predisposed to burn faster in the sun, thus logically being only fit to live underground like groveling goblins?”

“(O)h man it’s kind of sick how much joy I get out of being cruel to old white men.”

There’s no question but that such racist attacks would never be tolerated toward any other group. Jeong never apologized and happily took her seat on the Times’ editorial board.

Our cultural institutions regard the statement “It’s okay to be white” as hate speech. Colleges instigate investigations whenever signs with that phrase appear on campus. Second-graders in this country are being indoctrinated into “white privilege” ideology.

Eventually people get tired of the left’s fixation on “white people” -– the gratuitous dumping on Western civilization, the incessant sneering about “old white men,” and the nonsense about “white privilege,” as if every white person knows every other white person and is greased into jobs and promotions.

But if you ever respond to the hate by noting that the contributions from the parts of the world loathed by The New York Times dwarf the contributions of other cultures, they threaten you. Any references to white male accomplishments are merely defensive.

Consider the current Gillette ad, “We Believe: The Best Men Can Be” (after the board of directors rejected the more accurate title, “ANNOUNCEMENT TO SHAREHOLDERS: WE’RE FOLDING THE COMPANY”). The ad shows only white men harassing women — and being corrected by minority men.

As long as they brought it up, every culture in the universe is galaxies more misogynistic than Western European culture. The ad should have been titled, Hey, white America, you’ve got to stop doing the things that everyone BUT you does.

When other groups talk about themselves, they instantly go to: We rock, we’re awesome! Only the descendants of white Western Europeans are not allowed to be proud of their culture.

There is still casual racism, and that should be quickly and severely condemned. Iowa Rep. Steve King, for example, was fanatically obsessed with vindicating a white defendant accused of, first, murdering a half-Pakistani woman, and, second, falsely accusing a Congolese man of the murder.

Except King never did that. Newsweek’s Burleigh did, writing an entire book in defense of alabaster-white Amanda Knox, after she was convicted of the brutal murder of her half-Pakistani roommate — later overturned — and also convicted of falsely accusing an innocent Congolese man of the crime, for which she served four years.

Liberals could never, in a million years, survive the standards of “racism” applied to conservatives. Even famed defense attorney Alan Dershowitz said that the only reason journalists defended “Foxy Knoxy” was that “she’s pretty and she doesn’t look like she did it and Americans care about what people look like. She’s the all-American young woman and we don’t care about the evidence.”

If you want to know about white supremacy, Nina, interview yourself. After that, maybe you can learn your maid’s name.

I’m getting back to the subject you desperately don’t want to discuss: How uncontrolled low-skilled immigration is slaughtering our working class — white, black and brown.

Tim Allen Beats Liberal Establishment, Ratings Soar for ‘Last Man Standing’


Reported By

Tim Allen

Tim Allen’s sitcom, Last Man Standing, was canceled by the liberals at ABC even though it was a ratings leader on the network. But now that Fox has picked the show up, Allen is having the last laugh as his show becomes one of Fox’s ratings leaders.

ABC cancelled Last Man Standing after its sixth season, even though it was still among ABC’s top rated shows. There was only one reason for its cancelation. It wasn’t because the show was failing. It was because ABC executives hated the fact that Allen’s show often featured conservative subject matter.

But only a few months after it was unceremoniously dumped by ABC, Fox TV picked the show up for a seventh season. Now, much to ABC’s dismay, Last Man Standing has become a new ratings leader for Fox.

According to CinemaBlend, LMS has proven Fox executives right for having taken on the show.

What’s especially exciting is that Last Man Standing has only increased in its dominance since returning at midseason to a 1.0 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 5.66 million viewers. During the January 11 airing, the show actually did a 1.2 rating and increased to 6.21 million total viewers, per TV By The Numbers.

If you look back over Season 7, that’s the highest the show has done in total viewers since the November 9 episode, which brought in 6.3 million total viewers. But forget total viewers, because in total viewers Last Man Standing often loses to its CBS competitors like Blue Bloods and MacGyver. Where Last Man Standing really shines is the coveted advertising demographic, and that’s where Fox should be clapping backs–all the way to the bank.https://lockerdome.com/lad/10817563773098342?pubid=ld-7985-7177&pubo=https%3A%2F%2Fflagandcross.com&rid=&width=740

In one of the series’ most recent episodes earned the highest ratings of any network TV show on Friday.

“This Friday, Last Man Standing pulled a 1.2 rating, which just so happens to be a number that is a whole lot higher than everything else network TV aired on Friday night,” CB reported. “It’s closest competitors were Fox’s own The Cool Kids, with a 1.0 rating, and CBS’ Hawaii Five-0, with a .9 rating.”

Fox execs are now reaping the rewards and dancing on ABC’s grave.

The show had a few cast changes with the move to Fox. The part of Allen’s grandson, Boyd is now being played by Jet Jurgensmeyer. Allen’s number two daughter, Mandy, is now being played by Molly McCook . And Tisha Campbell took over the role of Carol Larabee. But the rest of the cast stayed on.

In any case, the show is still a hit and has maintained its audience despite ABC’s attempt to destroy it because it is a conservative show.

Transgender Step-Dad And Female Partner Reveal That Son, Age 5, Is Transitioning To Be A Girl


Written by K. Walker on January 15, 2019

Is this the family of the future?

Jody and Greg Rogers of Glasgow have been labeled Britain’s first ‘Transgender Family’ now that they have revealed that their five-year-old son is transitioning to become a girl.

Jody, 21, and Greg,27, though not married, share the same last name and home with Jody’s biological son, Jayden. The family, which has been together for 3 years, has been reported to social services and faced ‘cruel online bullies’ since Jayden began living life as a ‘fashion-loving girl’ and using female pronouns almost a year ago.

This is the same country where Muslim rape-gangs were permitted to rove free preying on vulnerable young girls from blue-collar families because you wouldn’t want to offend anyone.

The Daily Mail wrote a piece about the family’s struggle with a ‘campaign of online abuse’ and a few neighbors that just don’t accept the five-year-old’s transition.

For although Jayden’s teachers, friends and most of their neighbours have accepted the child’s gender transition, others have mounted a campaign of online abuse centred on the unfounded claim that the parents had somehow cajoled their child into becoming a girl.

The nightmare began with an anonymous complaint to social services from a resident who saw Jayden playing outside the family home in girls’ clothing and accused the couple of child abuse. Astonishingly, although the council officials who investigated the claims found the Rogers to be a happy, loving family, the couple say it was suggested they move away from the area to solve the problem.

They angrily refused but have since suffered a barrage of online insults from anonymous trolls who insist that because Greg had changed sex, he must have forced Jayden to do the same.

Greg was born a woman and has taken male hormones and has undergone surgery to remove both breasts, but has not yet had full gender reassignment surgery. Greg who transitioned at age 16, says that it was the last thing that the couple wanted for their child because it’s such a difficult life.

‘We haven’t encouraged Jayden to do this, despite what people think, and we are hurt at the suggestion.

‘She has no idea that I’m transgender. Having been through this myself, I have conflicting emotions about her deciding she doesn’t want to be a boy any more. It’s not an easy life. People will always judge you and I don’t think there is a single transgender person on the planet who would push that on a child.

‘We can’t fix society but we can help Jayden to be happy with who she is. We don’t encourage it. In fact, we buy boys’ and girls’ clothes to give her the option and we have regular conversations with her, underlining that if she wants to go back to being a boy, we will love her regardless. It is not something I would have chosen for myself and certainly not something I would choose for my child, but she is so much happier now.’

It all began about a year ago when Jayden, then aged 4, had surgery to correct a hearing problem that was affecting his ability to communicate. Step-dad Greg says that once the operation was complete, Jayden immediately expressed his displeasure at being a boy.

She developed speech and immediately started saying, “I hate wearing boys’ clothes and everything about being a boy”. At first, we thought it was probably just a phase but it’s been consistent ever since. She is adamant she’s a girl.

Jayden’s mother, Jody, spoke about how her son became her daughter overnight.

‘I had a son one moment and a daughter the next. It probably took me six months to start accepting that it was what Jayden really wanted. It’s been like a grieving process for me, though. I do miss having a son and, as a baby, Jayden looked so much like a boy.

‘I look back at photographs of him now, in his little suits, and it’s like a different person.

‘I’ve never been a “girly girl” myself, but Jayden is, and I’ve had to learn to do her hair and nails.

‘I never had to bother before because when she was a boy, she just had a short back and sides. Fortunately, her name was unisex, otherwise she would have had to change it, but I still get the pronouns mixed up, calling her “he” rather than “she”. Jayden gets really annoyed with me.’

Fortunately. You wouldn’t have to go through the hassle of changing your child’s name or anything. Altering their very existence, however… well, that’s fine.

Doctors still know very little about the long-term effects of taking puberty blockers over an extended period and have claimed there is ‘anecdotal data’ the drugs are linked to osteoporosis.

Young people who are prescribed blockers are likely to progress onto ‘cross sex’ hormones when they reach 16. Boys will be given oestrogen and girls will start on testosterone. The effects of this medication are irreversible and can have ‘lifelong implications’ for the users.

Jody said: ‘Of course I have concerns for the future. I get really worried because she will have to go on hormone blockers when she’s older if she wants to remain being a girl. People have actually asked us if she’s had the surgery already to her lower half, which is frankly ridiculous. She’s five!

‘Others have told me I should force Jayden to be a boy and not pander to it because she will get bullied. But she was getting bullied anyway because she’s always been flamboyant.’

She added: ‘This is all about a boy wearing a dress and some people’s prejudices. If it was a girl with short hair and tracksuit bottoms, no one would bother.’

Source: Daily Mail

So, here’s an awkward observation…

Perhaps Jayden hates everything about being a boy because he lives with two women and one has taken the form of a man but is still genetically a woman. He doesn’t have a genuine male role model. His ‘dad’ is a woman who believes that she is a man and has had surgery to mimic being a man. As difficult as it is for transgender individuals to hear, a woman cannot be a man, nor can a man be a woman. It is not biologically or genetically possible.

It could be that the tolerance for gender fluidity that they have been teaching Jayden from the time he was two has had an effect on him. After all, there is nature and there is nurture. I actually say this without judgment on these parents who believe that they were training their son to be kind to people who are ‘different’ and eventually understand that his step-dad was once a woman. I understand teaching your kids your values, and well, what else would they teach him?

But maybe there are just some things that children are unable to cognitively grasp at certain ages. That’s why many conservatives are concerned about the age-appropriateness of some sex ed curricula that include things like gender identity at a very early age.

Look, as a Christian woman, I do believe that we need to have compassion for people that are struggling with gender confusion. It is such a basic part of who we are, and I cannot imagine what it would be like to question that. However, this statistically tiny community has been growing, and I personally don’t believe that it’s just because there is more acceptance to the premise that gender is fluid. (Which I don’t believe to be true.)

If this family is concerned about the well being of Jayden, then maybe they should look at moving. A married, gay conservative man is seeking asylum in the United States because of the Islamization of the UK.

And then there is the issue of regret and de-transitioning.

The decisions children make are often regretted. This is also true of gender transition. That’s because once trans kids become adults, they quite often ‘grow out of’ being transgender. What, you mean things can change once you hit puberty? That doesn’t stop the Media(D) and transactivists push younger and younger transition with the use of puberty blockers that cause permanent changes like sterility.

Regret is real. Take it from the words of a conservative transgender woman, Blaire White, who doesn’t regret her transition, but warns of children transitioning too early:

America’s Youngest Black Legislator Is a Pro-Life, Pro-God Breath of Fresh Air


Reported By Bryan Chai | January 13, 2019 at 12:24pm

I despise identity politics. To reduce one’s worth or meaning to an arbitrary feature or characteristic like skin color is the antithesis of progress. It’s no secret that leftists and Democrats love their identity politics. They’re always identifying things like racism or sexism under the cynical idea that it’ll help unite voters under their banner.

The truth of the matter is that identity politics, by definition, don’t unite. They divide.

Frankly, the content of one’s character and beliefs should always be more important than the color of one’s skin or ethnic background. Those are just some of the reasons why seeing a legislator like Caleb Hanna rise in prominence is so exciting.

Now, if I were a Democrat or a leftist, I might focus on the fact that he’s a young black man who’s won a seat on the West Virginia state legislature at the insanely young age of just 19. It’s one thing to describe Hanna by mentioning his skin color, there’s nothing wrong with that. The problem is when leftists begin defining people by their skin color.

That’s exactly why I instead want to focus on what makes Hanna such an exciting young lawmaker. And it has nothing to do with skin color.

According to a candidate profile provided to The Register Herald in May, the young Republican is made of the right stuff and stands for the right stuff.

“I’m proudly a Christian conservative and was raised on the belief that success is built with hard work, commitment and dedication – West Virginia values that continue to guide me today,” Hanna said.

According to the West Virginia MetroNews, Hanna won his seat in the state House District 44 by a nearly 2-to-1 margin in November’s general election. That win made him unique among American lawmakers, according to the Charleston Gazette-Mail.

“At that moment, Hanna became the youngest African-American in America to be elected to a state legislature, according to the National Council of State Legislatures. The results were 1,306 to 874 in the fragmented 44th District, which includes all of Webster County, half of Nicholas County and a couple of precincts in Randolph and Upshur counties.”

Hanna’s stances echo some of the hallmarks of modern conservatism.

“I support the WV Pro-Life movement and have been endorsed in the Republican Primary by West Virginians for Life. I also fully support the 2nd Amendment and our right to bear arms,” Hanna said in May. “I will be a passionate, effective, and conservative fighter for limited government, economic growth, and the Constitution.”

Another aspect of conservatism that Hanna is shaped by is his family upbringing.

“When I was only 10 years old, I heard my father say, ‘The American Dream is getting harder to find. Opportunities are becoming tougher to come by, and the simple idea, of by doing the right thing and working hard you can provide for your family, just really isn’t so simple anymore.’ From that moment, I knew I wanted to somehow help and serve the people of the great Mountain State.

“My goal is very simple, and that’s to bring A New Era of Leadership to West Virginia government. By implementing my youth and skills into government, I can provide a fresh new perspective to policy making that is not usual but is certainly effective,” Hanna said. “I have vision for opportunity that others typically miss, and West Virginia needs that now more than ever. I have a lot of pride for this state I’ve always called home.”

Compare Hanna’s rhetoric to some of the drivel pushed by young leftists like congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. I’ve never been one to summarily dismiss someone because of their youth. I don’t care that Hanna and Ocasio-Cortez are so young for their respective positions. I care about what they have to say. Ocasio-Cortez says foolish things that threaten to disrupt the American democracy with her socialist and leftist ideals.

Hanna seems like a smart young man who wants to genuinely improve his country. That’s worth lauding and I can’t wait to see what he does next.

All It Took Was 1 Border Photo and Trump Has Leftists Triggered


Reported By C. Douglas Golden | January 12, 2019 at 11:04am

There’s nothing quite like the Trump tweet. It’s not just a matter of owning the libs, as they say. In fact, the tweets often aren’t perfect from a policy and/or public relations standpoint. There’s definitely been some problematic stuff in the presidential feed from time to time.

Nevertheless, therein lies the fun. However much you might think that the president has done harm to his cause in 280 characters or less, his enemies tend to do way more damage to theirs.

Take, for instance, a tweet that should have been entirely unproblematic. After all, it was confrontational, but decidedly true. It involved a section of new fencing being put up along the border:

Now, there wasn’t a whole lot of context here regarding funding, where this was being built or whether or not it was replacing an old barrier. The point was, however, a new border wall was indeed being built — at least according to the tweet.

And thusly did the left half of political Twitter lose their minds.

Dr. Eugene Gu, a surgeon who has become a liberal political hashtag activist because a) he does transplants using tissue from aborted fetuses and b) why the heck not, was definitely triggered by the post.

Yeah, stopping people from entering the United States illegally makes you “like the worst, evil cartoon character villain.” Also, a “Game of Thrones” reference. Yet more proof Trump does triggering better than anyone else. Also, he does “Game of Thrones” references better, too.

Oh, and one of the Brothers Krassenstein commented on it, because of course they did. They didn’t seem to understand the whole mechanics of wall funding or the fact that there are still numerous areas along our southern border that are unsecured:

Someone please remind me why these guys are beloved social media stars.

There was also a tweet from a mental health counselor and author which we can’t show here that basically said, in vulgar terms, that Trump’s “imaginary wall is a metaphor” for his reproductive parts and that he’s building it because there are, ahem, medical issues with said parts. You can see the original tweet here. Again, published mental health counselor.

There are plenty of other tweets in this vein, although these are the most famous lib trolls that seem to have been trolled and don’t seem to get either the purpose of the wall or how it’s funded.

This is the state of the left today. Even the mere mention of the wall sends them into a tizzy. “This was already planned!” “It’s a fence, not a wall!” “You’re a barbarian!” Etc., etc.

And the media says someone in the White House should take away Donald Trump’s Twitter. Not when it creates reactions like this, they shouldn’t.

Seventeen Burned Bodies Appear Near Border as Democrats Say We Don’t Need a Wall


Reported By Ben Marquis | January 10, 2019 at 4:25pm

Democrats and the media immediately set about disputing Trump’s labeling of the border situation as a “crisis,” part of their overtly biased effort to instantly “fact-check” every word or statistic uttered by the president in the brief speech, and — coincidentally? — all seemed to arrive at the same conclusion: There is no real crisis at the border, only a “manufactured crisis” brought about purposefully by Trump’s actions, or some such nonsense like that.

Of course, to follow along with the media’s bouncing ball on this one, everyone must ignore the fact that the same liberal media loudly trumpeted the “crisis” at the border in 2013 and 2014 — when they were supporting comprehensive immigration reform and amnesty for illegal immigrants — or their hollering about a “crisis” on the border through much of 2017 and 2018 when Trump began to crack down on illegal border crossings and deportations ticked up.

In truth, however, the only thing “manufactured” about all of this is the Democrats ‘obstinate opposition to the president and their refusal to acknowledge the basic and undeniable facts of what is occurring on and around the porous and lightly defended southern border.

Case in point, Reuters reported on Thursday that at least 20 dead bodies — 17 of which had been badly burned — were discovered on Wednesday in the Mexican city of Ciudad Miguel Aleman, which is located a mere 56 miles across the Rio Grande River from the U.S. border city of McAllen, Texas, where President Trump visited with U.S. Border Patrol agents and other officials on Thursday.

Mexican authorities are reportedly investigating what has all the appearances of a deadly battle between members of two rival gangs in the area, gangs that routinely play in a role in the illicit cross-border excursions that bring illegal aliens, criminals, drugs, weapons and even terrorists into this nation.

The suspected gang-related massacre even drew a mention from Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador at his daily news conference on Thursday, and though he didn’t offer up much in the way of specifics, he did say that security officials would provide more information at a later date or time.

Reuters noted that according to one Mexican security official, five burned-out vehicles were also discovered along with the 20 dead bodies, though the outlet noted that a separate Mexican security official had reportedly counted as many as 21 dead bodies at the scene. The grisly scene was located in the Tamaulipas region of Mexico, one of the more violent states in that nation that has been controlled by dangerous criminal cartels and gangs for years. Those groups exert a great deal of control over drug and human trafficking across the border in that region, and are well-known for running extortion rackets on local residents and exploiting migrants passing through the area for whatever can be gained.

When not engaged in those border-related crimes, the cartels and gangs are fighting violently among each other or waging war against Mexican security forces, violence that has claimed tens of thousands of lives — some innocent, some not so much — over the years.

Obviously, incidents like this one — and this bloody incident is far from an isolated occurrence — are what President Trump is referencing when he speaks of the “crisis” at the border while demanding Congress appropriate the necessary funds to construct a border wall where needed and to increase border security measures in other ways.

Yet, based solely on their reflexive opposition to all things Trump, many talking heads in the liberal media staunchly refuse to acknowledge as a “crisis” what their own colleagues are quietly reporting on a near-daily basis.

Indeed, some in the media have even adopted a sort of “Don’t believe your lying eyes” attitude when it comes to their anti-Trump reporting on the border, as evidenced by a ridiculous tweet from CNN’s Jim Acosta that actually seemed to prove the president’s point about how necessary and effective a border wall truly is.

In several other tweets after that, Acosta hyped up how safe the border town of McAllen is — while studiously ignoring the obvious fact that McAllen is safe because it has a border wall and other barriers obstructing those who would illicitly cross over.

Unfortunately, the wall and other barriers along the border in the McAllen region that keep it so safe only extend for so long, and eventually give way to mere chain-link fencing or nothing at all, meaning those who wish to cross the border illegally need only walk around the end to do so. Anyone with common sense and intellectual honesty can plainly see that and realize Trump is absolutely correct to want to address this security crisis post haste.

State lawmakers forcing pro-LGBTQ material on schools


Reported by Bob Kellogg (OneNewsNow.com) | Thursday, January 10, 2019

"Celebrate Diversity" bannerNew Jersey could soon become the second state requiring public schools to include in their curricula the societal contributions of LGBTQ individuals.

In 2012, California became the first state mandating that public schools recognize the contributions of homosexuals. New Jersey could be next if Governor Phil Murphy signs into law a bill requiring school districts include instruction on the contributions of people with disabilities and those in the LGBTQ community. If signed into law, S-1569 would apply to the curriculum of middle school and high school students beginning with the 2020-2021 school year.

Len Deo, president and executive director of the New Jersey Family Policy Council, describes the bill as ludicrous legislation that could alter history.

Deo

“It’s a ridiculous piece of legislation,” he tells OneNewsNow. “It should not be redoing history, no matter what a person’s gender identity or sexuality was in the past.”

The bill’s sponsor is Democratic Senator Loretta Weinberg of Bergen. However, Deo says there was no notable clamor for such a bill.

“This has not been a mandate from the New Jersey Department of Education,” he points out. “This legislation is forcing local school boards individually to have to address this issue and change their current curriculum.”

In December, the legislation passed both the State Assembly (52-10-15) and the State Senate (27-5).

News from Associated Press

WASHINGTON (January 11, 2019) — President Donald Trump is edging closer to declaring a national emergency to fund his long-promised border wall, as pressure mounts to find an escape hatch from the three-week impasse that has closed parts of the government, leaving hundreds of thousands of workers without pay.

BARRON, Wis. (January 11, 2019) — A 21-year-old man is jailed in the deaths of a Wisconsin couple he killed because he wanted to kidnap their teenage daughter, investigators said Friday, a day after the girl approached a stranger along a rural road saying she’d been abducted in October and held against her will.

SAN FRANCISCO (January 11, 2019) — A U.S. judge will hear arguments Friday over California’s attempt to block new rules by the Trump administration that would allow more employers to opt out of providing no-cost birth control to women.

CAIRO (January 11, 2019) — U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo brought the Trump administration’s anti-Iran message to Gulf Arab states on Friday, arriving in Bahrain to continue a nine-nation tour of the Middle East aimed at reassuring America’s partners that withdrawing troops from Syria does not mean Washington is abandoning the region.

WASHINGTON (January 11, 2019) — Thousands of requests by men to bring in child and adolescent brides to live in the United States were approved over the past decade, according to government data obtained by The Associated Press. In one case, a 49-year-old man applied for admission for a 15-year-old girl.
