Pro-life activists have responded after Planned Parenthood President Alexis McGill Johnson denounced the organization’s founder, Margaret Sanger, and accused the head of the abortion giant of attempting to undertake a “fake reckoning” regarding Sanger’s ties to the eugenics movement. 

Johnson, who heads the nation’s largest abortion provider, wrote a New York Times op-ed Saturday titled: “I’m the Head of Planned Parenthood. We’re Done Making Excuses for Our Founder.”

Johnson, who took over as Planned Parenthood president in 2019, noted that questions about Margaret Sanger’s views on race have loomed large in recent years. She stressed that “We must reckon with Margaret Sanger’s association with white supremacist groups and eugenics.”

Up until now, Planned Parenthood has failed to own the impact of our founder’s actions. We have defended Sanger as a protector of bodily autonomy and self-determination, while excusing her association with white supremacist groups and eugenics as an unfortunate ‘product of her time,’” she wrote.

“Until recently, we have hidden behind the assertion that her beliefs were the norm for people of her class and era, always being sure to name her work alongside that of W.E.B. Dubois and other Black freedom fighters.”

She acknowledged that Sanger “spoke to the women’s auxiliary of the Ku Klux Klan at a rally in New Jersey to generate support for birth control” and “endorsed the Supreme Court’s 1927 decision in Buck v. Bell, which allowed states to sterilize people deemed ‘unfit’ without their consent and sometimes without their knowledge.”

Johnson highlighted Planned Parenthood’s efforts to make “Margaret Sanger less prominent in our present and future.”

Maintaining that “Sanger remains an influential part of our history and will not be erased,” Johnson illustrated the need for her organization to “fully take responsibility for the harm that Sanger caused to generations of people with disabilities and Black, Latino, Asian-American, and Indigenous people.” 

The rest of the op-ed focused on what Johnson viewed as the positive effects of Planned Parenthood, specifically that the availability of birth control led to wage gains among women in addition to expressing support for combating systemic racism.

In response to Johnson’s op-ed, the pro-life group Human Coalition and its affiliated advocacy organization Human Coalition Action released statements arguing that the Planned Parenthood president’s attempt to apologize for Sanger was insufficient. According to Human Coalition Action Board Chair Deborah Honeycutt, “Planned Parenthood has contributed to the harm of women of color for decades, and Alexis McGill Johnson’s so-called ‘reckoning’ does nothing to change that truth.”

“They have failed to confront white supremacy within its own organization, as they continue to aggressively pray on Black and brown communities with abortion,” Honeycutt stated. 

“Destroying human life contributes to a culture of death and injustice, and Planned Parenthood will always be known for killing a generation of minorities, just as Margaret Sanger dreamed that it would.”

Benjamin Watson, former NFL football player and vice president of strategic relations for Human Coalition, argued that it is time for Planned Parenthood “to take the next step, or their denunciation of Margaret Sanger rings hollow.”

“Whether they personally identify with Sanger’s ideology or not, they continue to carry out her mission, by serving as the leading executioner of our children,” Watson, who retired in 2020 after 15 seasons in the NFL, stated.

“The same Sanger they claim to disavow would applaud their efforts and results, as a disproportionate percentage of Black children have been killed in Planned Parenthood’s abortion clinics. Acknowledging a racist history does not absolve them of the blood on their hands, as they continue to take full advantage of victims of the racism they decry.”

Human Coalition Action Executive Director Rev. Dean Nelson expressed gratitude that Johnson admitted “what many Black leaders have said for decades — Margaret Sanger harbored racist and eugenicist views.” 

Responding to Johnson, he argued that “The problem with Margaret Sanger is more than just her ‘association’ with white supremacist groups and eugenics.”

“You cannot acknowledge the racist person and history without admitting to the racist vision that has resulted in nearly 80 percent of Planned Parenthood’s abortion facilities being located within walking distance of minority neighborhoods,” Nelson continued. “There’s no redeeming Planned Parenthood’s tainted origins and current day racist practices. It’s a grave injustice that Planned Parenthood uses the taxpayer dollars of Black and brown people to continue Margaret Sanger’s legacy of racism and eugenicism across the country.”

Johnson’s op-ed comes more than six months after a group of more than 120 black leaders urged Planned Parenthood to “confront its racist founding, mission and practices.” 

Last summer, before the black leaders wrote the letter to Johnson, Planned Parenthood of Greater New York removed Sanger’s name from its building. Johnson cited that action in the op-ed as an example of the organization’s efforts to distance itself from Sanger.

Despite the newfound scrutiny surrounding Sanger’s support for eugenics, the Smithsonian Institute unveiled a new “Girlhood” exhibit last October at the Museum of American History. The exhibit paid tribute to Sanger alongside another notable figure in women’s history. 

Planned Parenthood is not the only abortion and birth control provider to distance itself from its founder in recent months. The global abortion provider MSI Reproductive Choices, formerly known as Marie Stopes International, changed its name last year to disassociate from its namesake over her “advocacy of eugenics.”

I have had these thoughts for a while hoping someone else more eloquent would say the same thing. If that has happened, I apologize for this drivel.

First of all, I wish those life forms that arrived from the planet Moron would board up and go back to their universe and leave us the hell alone. It’s moronic to take 10’s of thousands jobs away just because you want to go “green”. Even the least of all morons will agree that you don’t shut down one industry while you develop another.

These life forms have never started a business, hired workers and maintained a payroll. As a results they have these “pie-in-the-sky” ideas that are Pollyanna, and lack the concern for the American people and the lives they are building.

Need more proof they are from the planet Moron? If you really do understand the middle class and the lives, they build based on the income they earn, then you never insult them telling them to go to work in the Solar market when you don’t have any idea what those jobs, where available, are actually paying. Such stinking thinking is the result of Socialistic stinking thinking. Only pretend you care and let them eat cake.

Based on the results of the last four years it has become obvious to me that we need to fire all the Morons from the Planet Moron, and the human life forms that have had their brains eaten by the life forms Moron, then ship them back to planet Moron. Then hire only businesspeople who have started businesses, maintained a payroll, and have demonstrated common sense in their business practices. ALL LAWYER TYPES NEED NOT APPLY.

Second. Once the Morons have left, then we can stop the MOB RULE. Let us be very honest here. The Leftist have developed a MOB RULE mentality that drives every aspect of their rule. At times it is outright intimidation: DO WHAT WE WANT OR WE WILL HURT THIS CITY, THE INNOCENT BUSINESS OWNERS AND WHOEVER GETS IN OUR WAY. It works, because they always get away with it and no one ever goes to jail and then to prison.

Other times they advance toward holding entire cities hostage until they get what they want, what verdict they want, the election outcome they want or any other thing they desire, but know they cannot obtain by legislative, or other normal means.

Mob Rule implies the actions of “the mob”. Operating just inside the law to obtain their sordid gains. The Left is very aware they cannot win any more elections unless it’s by mob rule because their message is no longer of any relevance.

Have we reached the point where the “bully” has won and cannot be defeated? Are we as a nation going to be ruled by these mobs, or are we going to get our freedom back? Can it be done without bloodshed? Anyone praying that way?

Please give me your perspective, ideas, prayers, or any comments you would like to add to the conversation.

Chauvin Trial Judge: Rep. Maxine Waters’ threats may result in “this whole trial being overturned” on appeal


Posted by William A. Jacobson | Monday, April 19, 2021

For years Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters has gotten away with stoking political violence, without ever behing held to account by the media or her own party. This time her sleazy incitement may have real world consequences.

Just yesterday Waters threatened Protesters Need to “Get More Confrontational” If No “Murder” Conviction Of Derek Chauvin: “We got to get more confrontational. We got to make sure they know we mean business.”

Today the defense in the Chauvin trial moved for a mistrial based on Water’s comments. The judge denied the mistrial motion, but noted it may be an issue on appeal and could lead to any conviction being overturned.

The Post Millenial reports:

“I’ll give you that Congresswoman Waters may have given you something on appeal that may result in this whole trial being overturned.” He said further that I’m aware that “Congresswoman Waters was talking specifically about this trial, and about the unacceptability of anything less than a murder conviction, and talking about being confrontational, but you can submit the press articles about that. This goes back to what I’ve been saying from the beginning: I wish that elected officials would stop talking about this case, especially in a manner that is disrespectful to the rule of law and the judicial branch and our function.“ I think if they want to give their opinions, they should do so in a respectful, and in a manner that is consistent with their commitment to the constitution, to respect the co-equal branch of government. Their failure to do so is abhorrent, but I don’t think it has prejudiced us with additional material that would prejudice this jury. They have been told not to watch the news and I trust that they are following these instructions and that there is not in any way a prejudice…

“A congresswoman’s opinion really doesn’t matter a whole lot,” Cahill concluded, and denied the motion for a mistrial.

The obvious reason for the Judge to deny a mistrial is that if there is a not guilty verdict on all counts, then the issue of Waters’ threats goes away. Andrew Branca will have his full write up later tonight, but I think the defense counsel Eric Nelson was phenomenol in closing, he picked apart the timeline of the 9-minute video. He was so good that the prosecution rebuttal was mostly personal attacks on him, which led to another motion for mistrial that was denied.

Baylor basketball coach credits ‘Christ-centered program’ after winning 1st championship (interview)


Reported By Emily Wood, Christian Post Reporter | Monday, April 19, 2021

Baylor University men’s basketball coach Scott Drew speaks with players during a timeout. The Baylor men’s basketball program won its first NCAA championship on April 5, 2021. | Baylor University

Fostering a Christ-first, others-second team model, the Baylor University Bears won their first NCAA men’s basketball national title earlier this month, completing a championship turnaround over 17 years after scandal and murder rocked the program. But unlike many other Division I basketball teams, the Bears took steps to ensure Christ was at the center of their program, not selfish ambition. 

Moments after clinching the national title and being presented with the national championship trophy, Baylor Coach Scott Drew told CBS’ Jim Nantz that his team plays with a “culture of J.O.Y.,” which stands for “Jesus, Others and then Yourself.”

Drew, who has been the men’s head basketball coach at the Waco, Texas-based university since 2003, told The Christian Post in an interview last Friday that the “culture of J.O.Y.” motto factors into how the team seeks to honor God and love others.

“J.O.Y., it’s pretty simple, ‘Jesus, Others, Yourself. [Its] very easy to remember and yet so hard to do. But at the end of the day, we want to make sure we always honor and give credit to Jesus first, and our teammates and others second, and talk about ourselves third,” Drew, the son of National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame coach Homer Drew, explained.

He said all Baylor coaches strive for their team to play selflessly. But with a Christ-centered approach to life, this is easier to achieve.

“As coaches, your mission and goal for any team is to put your teammates in front of yourself,” he said. “Obviously, the only person you would want before others would be God. So if you could keep that priority, then obviously you’re playing selfless, you’re playing for others, you don’t have the pressure on yourself to perform.”

“At the same time, as we get older in life, you know it’s much better to give than to receive. Yet, obviously, with sin in the world, we get prideful, we get jealous, we want to get the attention. So it’s a constant battle …,” he continued. “It’s such a hard thing to actually enact. So you do have to love your teammates to put them in front of you, and it’s only through God’s grace and mercy are we able to do those kinds of things.”

Since Baylor is a Christian university — one of America’s largest Baptist universities — there are many ways for team members to become active in their faith. But the coaches seek to integrate faith into the team’s routine. Every practice begins and ends in prayer. The team also has Bible studies and holds gameday chapel services.

“So basically, everything we do is intertwined with being a Christ-centered program,” he said.

While in Indianapolis for the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, players had the opportunity to have communion together for Easter weekend, Drew shared.

“Everyone comes into college spiritually at a different stage of life, and that’s the beauty of working at Baylor,” Drew said. “We’re trying to prepare champions for life. So, it’s a four-prong attack. It’s not only on the basketball court, but it’s also spiritual development, academic development and then character formation. So, what you’re trying to do is to touch and affect every part of their life. Obviously, winning in the game of life is most important and that would be the spiritual part.”

The Baylor atmosphere is ideal for 18 to 22-year-old college students surrounded by so much temptation, Drew explained.

“Jesus came for the sick, not the healthy, and we all sin,” the 50-year-old coach said. “We’re all saved by grace. So our staff does a great job at not judging people but trying to help them come along and mature as their years at Baylor progress.”

Drew has witnessed this in the spiritual growth of his team. He has had years where as many as six players have been baptized in one season.

Drew, who grew up in a Christian home and was saved at an early age, said his relationship with Christ began to mature when he became involved with Athletes in Action, a Cru ministry that teaches athletes to find and grow in a relationship with Jesus.

After following in his father’s footsteps by coaching at Valparaiso, Drew accepted the Baylor men’s basketball position in 2003 after the team had experienced the murder of one of its players by a teammate and was under fire for NCAA violations, bribery and drug use.

“When [the Baylor position] came open, the first thing I obviously did was pray about it. And then, I felt led to come here. And after meeting with the leadership at the time, I loved the vision they had for the university and the plans they had …,” Drew recalled. “They wanted to make it one of the premier Christian institutions in Division I and they had a lot of big plans as far as new buildings, new facilities and ways to honor God and bring attention to the Gospel through it.”

When he arrived at Baylor, the men’s basketball program had a long way to go to reach championship success after being imposed with strict NCAA sanctions and self-imposed restrictions due to its violations. The team was also recovering from the tragedy involving the murder of forward Patrick Dennehy, who teammate Carlton Dotson shot in the summer of 2003. Even then, Drew never doubted the team would one day win a national title.

“[A national championship] was always the goal,” he said. “We never put a timetable on it, but when we took the job, being younger, I probably thought it would happen sooner because when you’re younger, you’re a little more ambitious or think things can happen a little quicker than they actually do.”

In recent years the team had come close to winning the title, he said. In 2010, Baylor lost to Duke University in the Elite Eight. And in 2012, Baylor lost to the University of Kentucky, who went on to win the national title. Baylor has averaged 24 wins per season since the first year that Drew led the Bears to the NCAA Tournament in 2008. Since 2008, Baylor has become one of the most consistent men’s basketball programs in the nation. Waiting nearly two decades to win the national title at Baylor made winning that much sweeter, Drew said.

“God’s timing is always best,” Drew stressed. “So, after being close but not having reached the Final Four or won a national championship, it made … me appreciate it that much more and know just what a blessing this year was when we made it to the Final Four and won a national championship. I think if we’d have done it in 2010, we probably wouldn’t have appreciated it or understood what a blessing it was.”

Oral Roberts University Coach Paul Mills coached with Drew at Baylor for 14 years before becoming ORU’s head coach in 2017 and leading ORU on a Cinderella run to the Sweet 16 in 2021. Mills shared with CP in a recent interview how Baylor’s program always emphasized that ‘unless the Lord builds the house, [the labor is in vain].’”

Drew alluded to this nod toward Scripture and said a strong foundation is essential.

“If God doesn’t ordain it, bless it, then it’s not going to happen, it’s not going to last,” Drew stated. “[It’s] Very similar to building and having a strong foundation on the rock rather than sand. So you gotta be prepared for when the storms come because the storms are going to come. And if you don’t have that solid foundation, then you’re not going to last, and it’s not going to hold up.”

BUSTED: CDC Created and Was Passing Out Coronavirus Vaccine ID Cards to States Back in August ’20 — Months Before the Vaccine Created

The world reacted with great optimism at the news announced in November days after the election that test subjects given a COVID-19 vaccine being developed by Pfizer had 90 percent fewer symptomatic infections of the China coronavirus than those given a placebo. This was after the November election.  Pfizer delayed their testing to not influence the election — for Trump.

President Trump repeatedly said in the fall that it looked like a vaccine might be announced in October.  Trump was on the right track, but the science community decided to hold off until after the election. But way before this the CDC was passing out COVID Vaccine ID Cards to different state governments.

I was doing a bit of internet sleuthing and was looking for a template for a COVID INJECTION card. With the fact that they are standardized I assumed that many places online would have a PDF out of convenience for local offices. VOILA, Google didn’t let me down. Now of course I was going to just fill my own out and take advantage of KRISPY KREME and their stupidity…..BUT WAIT! The date of the template is from 8/17/20!

Here is the link and information below…

And here is a closeup of the card with a date from August 2020.

The tyrants in government have been talking and thinking about this idea for MUCH LONGER than they have let on!

70-year-old Mexican-American grandmother brutally beaten on bus by attacker who thought she was Asian


Reported by PAUL SACCA | April 16, 2021

Read more at https://www.theblaze.com/news/mexican-grandmother-hate-attack-la/

An elderly Mexican-American woman in California was reportedly savagely beaten by an attacker who thought the woman was Asian and hurled an anti-Chinese racial slur at her, according to reports. A 70-year-old woman was riding on a bus to go grocery shopping in the Eagle Rock neighborhood of Los Angeles last Friday afternoon, the victim’s son told the Eastsider. The elderly woman was getting off the bus to go to the Vons supermarket when another passenger screamed an anti-Chinese racial epithet at the Mexican-American woman. The suspect brutally beat the Mexican-American woman, whom she allegedly believed to be Asian.

“The victim’s son reportedly says that a female passenger, described as ‘black,’ called his mother an anti-Asian slur and then attacked her,” KTLA reported.

The attacker reportedly pulled out some of the victim’s hair as she dragged her from the back of the bus to the front. The son said his mother suffered a concussion and a broken nose from the assault. Her leg was badly injured, and she now has difficulty walking, according to her son. She was allegedly held overnight in a hospital. Photos show the unnamed woman’s face severely bruised and swollen.

“Nobody would help,” the victim’s son alleges. “Not even the bus driver.”

A passenger called 911 to report the vicious beating. The Los Angeles Police Department said that a suspect was apprehended shortly after the assault. LAPD said Yasmine Beasley, 23, was arrested on felony battery charges, according to the New York Post. LAPD spokesman William Cooper told the Los Angeles Times that he did not know whether prosecutors were pursuing hate crime charges.

Jail records show that Beasley is being held on a $130,000 bond and is due in court on Friday, Crime Online reported.

The Stop AAPI Hate Reporting Center, which tracks incidents of discrimination, hate, and xenophobia against Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders, reported 3,975 racially motivated incidents against Asian-Americans between March 19 last year and Feb. 28, 2021. Nearly 45% of the incidents in the United States took place in California, and 68% of the victims were female.

Ashli Babbitt’s Legal Team Releases Statement After DOJ Abruptly Closes Investigation into Her Murder inside the US Capitol


Reported By Tayler Hansen | Published April 14, 2021

Read more at https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2021/04/ashli-babbitts-legal-team-releases-statement-doj-abruptly-closes-investigation-murder-inside-us-capitol/

As reported earlier — The Biden Justice Department announced Wednesday it has closed the investigation into the homicide death of Trump supporter Ashli Babbitt that took place inside the Capitol during the January 6 riot. This was while Congress was meeting in joint session to certify the November presidential election in favor of Joe Biden.

Babbitt, who was unarmed, was shot and killed without apparent warning by a plainclothes Capitol Police officer as she climbed through a broken window in a door at the Speaker’s Lobby. The name of the officer was not released. he DOJ stated that shooting her dead without warning was appropriate.  Evidently, this is the new standard for murder in our country.

Display at funeral service for Ashli Babbitt, February 21, 2021, photo by Taylor Hansen

Ashli Babbitt was a 35-year-old Air Force veteran who left behind a husband, Aaron Babbitt. The couple ran a pool service business in Spring Valley, California. On Wednesday afternoon the lead attorney representing the Babbit family, Terry Roberts, issued a press release following the DOJ’s earlier announcement.

Roberts explained, “A press release issued by the U.S. Attorney’s Office declared that “(t)he investigation revealed no evidence to establish beyond a reasonable doubt that the officer willfully committed a violation of 18 U.S.C. Sec. 242…   This double-negative is an odd way of explaining the basis for not bringing charges. It plainly glosses over the obvious problems of squaring the decision not to prosecute with the known facts. The actual evidence is this: the officer shot an unarmed woman who was not an immediate threat to him or any Member of Congress. This is inconsistent with any claim of self-defense.

Roberts then ended his statement by stating the legal team’s decision to proceed with their goal of true justice, “We strongly disagree with the U.S. Attorney’s decision. But we are not dissuaded from our goal of ultimately vindicating Ashli Babbitt’s constitutional rights in the civil arena.”

The shooting death of US Veteran Ashli Babbit was murder, plain and simple. Babbit did not represent a threat. The officer did not warn Babbit and disappeared after he shot her in cold blood. This case is far from over.

Democrats introduce bill to add 4 seats to the Supreme Court; Pompeo calls effort ‘political games’


Reported By Michael Gryboski, Christian Post Reporter | Thursday, April 15, 2021

Democrats in U.S. Congress have announced controversial legislation that would add four seats to the U.S. Supreme Court in response to the current conservative majority. However, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has reportedly said she won’t bring such legislation to the floor for a vote. 

Introduced Thursday, the bill is known as the Judiciary Act of 2021 and would increase the number of justices on the Supreme Court for the first time since the 19th century. Sponsors include House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler of New York, Chairman of the Judiciary Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property, and the Internet Hank Johnson of Georgia and Rep. Mondaire Jones of New York. In the Senate, the bill is backed by Sen. Edward J. Markey of Massachusetts.

In a statement, Markey claimed that “Republicans stole the Court’s majority, with Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation completing their crime spree.”

“Senate Republicans have politicized the Supreme Court, undermined its legitimacy, and threatened the rights of millions of Americans, especially people of color, women, and our immigrant communities,” he argued.

“This legislation will restore the Court’s balance and public standing and begin to repair the damage done to our judiciary and democracy, and we should abolish the filibuster to ensure we can pass it.”

Over the past couple of years, some progressive politicians and activists have pushed to add more justices to the Supreme Court to counter what is now a 6-3 conservative majority. During his only term in office, President Donald Trump appointed three justices to the Supreme Court. Those confirmations came after Republicans in the Senate blocked President Barack Obama’s 2016 nomination of Merrick Garland following Justice Antonin Scalia’s death. 

Following Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death, Democrats were upset that the Republican-controlled Senate quickly confirmed Barrett to the court last October just days before the 2020 election but never held a confirmation vote for Garland even though he was nominated months before the 2016 election. 

Last week, President Joe Biden signed an executive order creating a commission comprised of 36 individuals to assess the Supreme Court’s current status and whether to reform it. House Speaker Pelosi reportedly declared Thursday that she would not bring the bill to the floor for a vote. According to CNN’s Manu Raju, Pelosi responded with a “no” when asked if she would bring a bill to expand the Supreme Court to the floor. However, she reportedly said that she backs the White House commission to study the idea.

“I think it’s an idea that should be considered,” she reportedly said. “It’s not out of the question … I have no intention to bring it to the floor.”

Former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is not sold by Pelosi’s remarks. 

“Do not fall for the Left’s game. Dems put forward a Supreme Court packing bill. Pelosi not there yet but says she supports Biden ‘bipartisan’ commission,” McEnany tweeted. “Commission is 2-to-1 stacked w/ liberals Supporting commission = Supporting court packing.” 

Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo criticized the legislation in a tweet Thursday morning. 

“Our Supreme Court Justices uphold the rule of law, not the emotion of law,” he wrote. “Packing the Supreme Court to tilt favorable outcomes brings partisan politics into the courtroom. SCOTUS is the last place we need political games.”

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina called expanding the Supreme Court a “terrible idea” and vowed to vote against it. 

Critics of the plan to pack the high court include Walter Shapiro of The Brennan Center for Justice, who wrote in 2019 that the plan seems “like a banana-republic attempt to change the rules in the middle of the game.” Shapiro drew a parallel to President Franklin Roosevelt’s attempt to pack the court when its conservative majority often struck down his New Deal efforts.

He noted that, eventually, Roosevelt abandoned his effort in part because the makeup of the Supreme Court began to change more in his favor without the need to add justices.

“The principled argument against 21st-century court packing is that it is dangerous to tamper with the mechanisms of democracy to thwart a single political figure,” wrote Shapiro.

“For times change while power eventually ebbs. But restructuring the Supreme Court could have lasting repercussions long after the current crisis is as forgotten as the mid-1930s conservative decisions that jeopardized the New Deal.”

Lebanon, a haven for Christianity, on the brink of collapse if world fails to act, experts warn


Reported By Emily Wood, Christian Post Reporter | Thursday, April 15, 2021

Lebanon, known as a haven for Christianity in the Middle East, is on the brink of financial collapse and teeters on the edge of failed-state status if its path is not quickly reversed, an expert roundtable hosted by a leading Middle Eastern Christians advocacy group warned.

“Lebanon is moving rapidly towards total state failure. Full collapse would take weeks to unfold but decades to repair,” former U.S. Ambassador Ed Gabriel, the president of the American Task Force on Lebanon, said during a media roundtable hosted by In Defense of Christians last Friday.

Richard Ghazal, a senior advisor for IDC, a nonpartisan Washington-based grassroots human rights organization, said Lebanon will not remain “the final remaining bastion of Christianity in the Middle East” if immediate action does not take place to reverse the country’s downfall.

The explosion in Lebanon’s capital city of Beirut on Aug. 4 led to over 200 deaths, thousands of injuries and the destruction of over 300,000 homes. The explosion worsened Lebanon’s financial and humanitarian crisis as the country with nearly a 40% Christian population was already in a state of decline.

The Lebanese prime minister resigned days after the deadly explosion and the protestors alleged the government was guilty of negligent handling of the explosives that triggered the blast. Before the fatal blast, nearly 1 million people in the Beirut area could not afford basic living essentials such as food, clothing and shelter. Around and 60% of citizens live below the poverty line due to political corruption and negligence, according to IDC.

Lebanon, a country with a population of around 6.8 million, shares borders with Israel and Syria.

Though it was once a financial capital in the Middle East, recent events, government corruption and the destabilization of its currency are causing international banks to flee as it is in a financial crisis. Foreign lenders such as HSBC and Wells Fargo are removing themselves from Lebanon’s central bank, while Bank of America and Deutsche Bank have reduced activities in Lebanon. The prevalence of Iran-backed militant group Hezbollah makes the country’s banks increasingly risky for international lenders.

Bishop Peter Karam, the patriarchal vicar and titular bishop of Acre of Phoenicia of the Maronites, said part of Lebanon’s financial crisis is due to the amount of corruption in the government. He compared the financial system’s mismanagement as a “Ponzi scheme.”

“We must admit the fact that there is a lot of corruption in Lebanon. A lot of corruption in Lebanon financially, politically, socially. … The collapse of the financial institutions in Lebanon is a very complex issue. …,” Karam said. “The financial sector in Lebanon was a model in the region for a lot of years. The country was known as the Switzerland of the Middle East. But now it’s just nonexistent because of mismanagement, corruption and political interference in the workings of the central bank and the financial sector.”

Ghazal said the whole world would feel the effects of Lebanon’s failure if it collapses.

“The Lebanese people cannot buy food or even the basic life essentials. So make no mistake about it, a total collapse in Lebanon will send economic humanitarian and even national security ripple effects around the region and then across the globe,” Ghazal explained.

Ghazal said the international community must respond to Lebanon’s worsening crisis through a United Nations-led summit to “re-chart its course going into the future” and restore its founding values of egalitarianism, accountability, the rule of law.

“We often hear the phrase, ‘eternal vigilance is the cost of freedom,’ well that’s never been more true than today in the case of Lebanon,” Ghazal said.

The panelists agreed that the international community must respond to Lebanon’s worsening crisis with a non-corrupt, reform-minded government. Stabilizing the currency will be a first step in the right direction, Gabriel, the former U.S. ambassador to Morocco, said. Gabriel recommended a “solid diplomatic effort” and an international conference led by the U.S. and France to provide humanitarian effort and stabilized armed forces.

Robert Nicholson, president of the Philos Project, a Christian advocacy group in the Near East, said the country’s geopolitical importance means its impending downfall would cause a ripple effect of ramifications across Israel, the U.S. and Europe.

“Lebanon is uniquely linked to the West,” Nicholson explained. “It’s part of the Arab world, but it’s just as much a part of the Western world. I sometimes think of Lebanon as kind of a ceasefire zone between these two worlds or civilizations or cultural-religious blocks.” He said Lebanon is on the “seam line between the Christian West and the Islamic [Near] East.”

“We talk a lot about, as Christians, the importance of this country to the [Christian] who live there. But Lebanon is just as important for the Muslims who live there and their co-religionists throughout the region,” Nicholson contended. “What happens in Lebanon affects the Christians, yes, and I am very concerned about that as a Christian. But it also affects many Muslims.”

Amazon reverses ban on book helping parents rescue kids from transgenderism after pushback

With no notification given, Amazon banned a new book aimed at helping parents sever the influences of gender ideology and then reversed its decision in its latest move against voices that scrutinize transgenderism.

The online retail giant blocked the book Desist, Detrans, & Detox: Getting Your Child Out of the Gender Cult by Maria Keffler, the co-founder of the recently-formed Partners for Ethical Care, from being sold on its platform six days after its publication.

The book’s removal comes on the heels of a similar move earlier this year when Amazon scrubbed scholar Ryan Anderson’s book, When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment, which had until recently been allowed on the platform since its initial publication in 2018. Last summer, Amazon also prohibited the publisher of Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters by journalist Abigail Shrier from purchasing ads to promote the book. 

Keffler told The Christian Post in a phone interview on Wednesday that she wasn’t surprised Amazon blocked her book, though she had hoped it would last longer than six days. 

“We fully expected it to happen. We knew it was going to. We decided to launch it on multiple platforms because we expected it to be canceled. And so that’s why we also put it on Smashwords as well as Lulu, a print platform,” Keffler said. 

Shortly after CP’s interview with Keffler Wednesday, the author said that the online retailer sent her an email, which she shared with CP, explaining that the scrubbing of the book was an “error.” The Kindle version went live and the paperback version should be reactivated soon. Amazon had previously told her that the book had violated their terms of service, which she challenged.  In a subsequent email to CP, Keffler said it was possible that “a calling and emailing onslaught may have affected the outcome” as “lots and lots of people were contacting Amazon to complain.”

Keffler believes that Big Tech and large corporations are intent on silencing critical voices of transgender ideology because there is big money in the “gender industry,” referencing The 11th Hour Blog, a website where the revenue streams fueling transgender ideology worldwide have been traced and documented. 

Fifteen years ago, the trend in young adult literature was vampire and werewolves, she explained, noting that she was glad to see that trend come to an end. Yet today, the dominant genre is transgender literature. 

“There are hundreds of these trans books out there and there’s a lot of money in it … this is a huge money-maker for the medical industry. I think there’s a lot of unconscionable profiteering going on.”

Keffler’s organization, Partners for Ethical Care, has received an uptick in traffic in recent weeks as increasing numbers of parents have reached out for help because their children have been harmed by the medicalization of gender, such as the use of cross-sex hormones in teenagers in pursuit of appearing as the opposite sex.

“We talk to new parents all the time and several support groups for parents on social media, and there’s just more and more of an influx of them coming in. It’s heartbreaking. Honestly, I’ve felt this way about the book for almost a week now, and every time someone buys it my heart hurts a little bit because I know that this is another family that’s been impacted by this,” she lamented. 

“I think a critical mass is growing and people are going to realize that this isn’t just a trend with bad families or people who don’t parent well or some weird sub-set. This is actively being strategically put in our schools and on social media.”

Parents who are reaching out are politically diverse, conservative and liberal alike, she noted.

“[Gender ideology] is non-discriminatory across the spectrum with people whose kids are getting sucked into this,” Keffler said.

Trafficking survivors detail Pornhub’s ‘criminal’ practices at congressional briefing


Reported By Brandon Showalter, Christian Post Reporter | Tuesday, April 13, 2021

Advocates and survivors speak during a virtual congressional briefing on Pornhub hosted by the National Center on Sexual Exploitation on April 8, 2021. | YouTube/National Center on Sexual Exploitation

A coalition of advocates and sex trafficking survivors have detailed to U.S. Congress the myriad ways one of the world’s largest pornography sites has concealed the sexual abuse of children for over a decade and has “built an empire” off criminal copyright violations. 

Lawyer: Pornhub ‘built its empire on criminal copyright violations’

In a congressional briefing that took place last Thursday hosted by the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, the advocates continued scrutiny that Pornhub has come under in recent months as it has already faced questioning from lawmakers in Canada. MindGeek, the parent company of Pornhub and other popular porn websites, has faced mounting accusations that its companies have hosted child sex abuse videos and other non-consensually recorded content, including videos of rape and sex trafficking.

“MindGeek’s empire of exploitation is built on the monetization of sexual abuse and exploitation of children,” said sex trafficking survivor Brook Bello of the Sarasota, Florida-based More Too Life. She called for it and Pornhub to be shut down. 

The heightened pressure on Pornhub has intensified since early 2020 as more survivors have come forward with their stories of exploitation, and a petition was launched that garnered over 2.2 million signatures calling for the website to be shut down because of its links to trafficking. The petition came as The New York Times published an article by columnist Nicholas Kristof titled “The Children of Pornhub” in December.

A Pornhub survivor named Serena, whom Kristof interviewed for his article, shared Thursday that the man who exploited her also uploaded a video of her to Pornhub. And when she contacted the website pretending to be her mother to demand the company take the video down since she was only 14, Pornhub took weeks to respond. The video was taken down only to reappear there days later, Serena detailed.

“I’d have to do this over and over and over again,” she said, noting that she would tell the company that the videos were during a dark time in her life, and she was a minor when it was filmed. She explained how Pornhub made her go through many steps to prove her identity and said the company made her send photos of herself with an ID card next to her face. She said the video set her on a destructive path of dropping out of school, drug use and becoming homeless. She wound up with an older guy who convinced her that since she already had an online presence, there was nothing wrong with making money in the same way. 

“It wasn’t something that a 14-year-old should have had to deal with, let alone continue to deal with all the way up until I’m 20 now. And just after the [Kristof] article, that’s when Pornhub started deleting all of their videos. And I haven’t seen a video of myself up there again,” she said. 

Offering a legal perspective, Serena’s attorney, Michael Bowe, shared during the briefing that her story is indicative of what has happened to thousands upon thousands of women. In the span of just one year of investigation, the attorney has spoken to and investigated over 100 stories that sound very similar to Serena’s plight, he said. 

And the impact … doesn’t end with the assault or the posting [of videos on the site]. It takes life away from women, and it derails their life,” Bowe told congressional staffers, emphasizing that lawmakers need to understand that the porn industry is not occupied by responsible corporate actors. 

“This is not Apple. This is not IBM. It’s not Microsoft. This is an industry which, for various reasons, grew up in illegality. The most obvious and mundane illegality is that the entire industry, this online porn industry, particularly Pornhub and MindGeek, the mack daddy of them all, built its empire on criminal copyright violations.”

“They basically stole millions and millions of legitimate adult entertainment videos, put them up there, all of which was criminal,” he added. “And they made a fortune, between $500 million and $1 billion a year.”

The companies knew that child sexual abuse content, trafficking and rape videos were on the sites and they did not care, he said. The attorney argued that their carelessness reflects the entire industry that is inherently rogue and can’t be trusted to self-police.

Current federal legislation on the books in the U.S. is dated and from the pre-internet era, Bowe added. He asserted that Pornhub and MindGeek do not believe that existing laws apply to them.

“What needs to happen is the statutes need to be updated so that there is no loophole and no ambiguity. … There needs to be a clear obligation that they ensure that the content that’s on their site is consensual and of age,” he stressed. 

Laila Mickelwait of the group Exodus Cry, who launched the petition to shut down Pornhub last year, highlighted six areas of criminal content on the website: sex trafficking, child sex abuse material, rape, incapacitated sexual assault, “revenge porn” and hidden-camera/spycam abuse. 

“Videos on Pornhub have obvious indicators of illegality, of criminal sexual abuse,” Mickelwait explained, noting that some videos contain tags such as “middle schooler” and “young teen.”

Content moderators who have come forward said that Pornhub could flag illegal content and disturbing comments. But what the site did instead was hide and censor the troubling signs, Mickelwait said.

“They have spent over a decade concealing the sexual abuse of children on their site, making zero reports to relevant authorities and child protection agencies,” she added. 

Since December, five lawsuits have been filed against Pornhub on behalf of trafficked women and minors, while calls for criminal investigations have occurred in both the U.S. and Canada. 

“The evidence of crime is overwhelming,” Mickelwait said at the close of the briefing. 

She stressed that three things need to happen: a formal government hearing in the U.S. as Canada has done, the passing of preventative laws to respond in a regulatory fashion to the evasive porn industry and a criminal investigation and prosecution by the Department of Justice of MindGeek and Pornhub. 

“A slap on the wrist for MindGeek is a slap in the face for the countless survivors who have had their lives completely destroyed by this predatory company,” Mickelwait concluded. 

Terry Forliti of Breaking Free in Minnesota, also a survivor, emphasized that extensive movement occurs between several fronts of the commercial sex trade. Women are recruited into pornography from stripping or prostitution, trafficking victims are videotaped and the material is posted on pornography sites that they have no control over. People who are recruited into adult films are then pressured to escort, she explained. 

“The commercial sex trade tries to create false borders between the legal industries like stripping and illegal crimes like sex trafficking,” Forliti said. “These lines are more blurred and coercion is deeply embedded in all forms of the sex trade.”

She continued: “the physical and psychological harms of being exploited on a platform such as PornHub is similar whether you’ve been in the life, or you were passed out and somebody uploads a video of your sexual abuse.”

“In both cases, you lose control of intimate images, and it’s a massive violation of your privacy,” Forliti said. “And this has a long-term impact on your sense of security, ability to form long-term relationships and can lead to other addictions and coping mechanisms.” 

Online sexual abuse is becoming increasingly common, she believes, because there is no legal check on such abuse. 

Author and researcher Christine Stark was trafficked as a child in the 1970s and 1980s in an organized sex trafficking and porn ring. Because victims have no control over the use of the images that are widely distributed, they have no closure from the abuse they endured. 

“I’ve lived my entire life dealing with the harms of being tortured and also knowing that those images are being used over and over and over again,” Stark stated. “It’s like being used all the time for the rest of your life, psychologically, knowing that that is going on.”

Mike Pence launches new conservative organization to advance Trump-era policies

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence speaks about Operation Warp Speed with U.S. President Donald Trump in the Rose Garden at the White House on November 13, 2020, in Washington, D.C. | U.S. Vice President Mike Pence

Former Vice President Mike Pence has created a conservative advocacy group to advance policies that were championed during the Trump administration.

Known as Advancing American Freedom, the launch of the conservative policy group was announced last week, with Pence explaining in a statement that its goal is to “build on the success of the last four years by promoting traditional Conservative values and promoting the successful policies of the Trump Administration.”

“Conservatives will not stand idly by as the radical Left and the new administration attempt to threaten America’s standing as the greatest Nation in the world with their destructive policies,” stated Pence in the announcement.

Advancing American Freedom will engage in policy discussions and issue advocacy at both the state and federal level by proposing conservative policy solutions. Among many policy focuses, the group will try to “stop taxpayer dollars from funding abortions domestically and globally” and “defend religious liberty, including the conscience rights of doctors, nurses, teachers, and religious charities.” 

The announcement also listed the Advancing American Freedom Advisory Board members, which comprises several leading conservative activists and public figures. Advisory board members include former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum, Texas megachurch Pastor Robert Jeffress, former Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, former Heritage Foundation President Kay James, former U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint, and Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser, among others.

In an interview with The Christian Post, Dannenfelser, who heads one of the nation’s leading grassroots pro-life organizations, explained that she has known Pence and his team for many years and has worked alongside them to advance pro-life policy efforts.

“I’ve known Mike Pence and his team for many, many, many years. So, I think it’s a natural extension of our friendship and our partnership and the fact that I really believe in him,” said Dannenfelser. “He invited me to be on the advisory board, and I said yes.”

Dannenfelser spoke positively of Pence, saying he “makes this organization what it is” and has a strong “adherence to principle” and “ability to lead” in what she called a “moment” for the pro-life movement. She told CP that she believes Pence can be an important factor for helping to support pro-life legislation, especially at the state level, and aid in having Republicans take back the U.S. House of Representatives in 2022.

“This is a larger moment for the pro-life movement. And for him to lead at this moment is particularly important, and it is a watershed because of the complete transformation of the federal judiciary,” she continued.

“All of those [state-level pro-life] bills will require articulation, they require advocacy, and then the people who are the governors, who are signing those bills, the legislators that are advancing those bills, the people running for Congress later need an advocate that has a high profile, [an] articulate advocate like Mike Pence.”

Although Pence wants to build upon the Trump administration’s policies, former President Donald Trump recently criticized his vice president at a fundraiser event in Florida. At the invitation-only speech held Saturday at his Mar-a-Lago resort, Trump reportedly told Republican donors that he was disappointedin Pence. Trump also attacked U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.

Democratic Congresswoman Calls for Total Lawlessness: ‘No More Policing’

Amid rioting and looting after an officer-involved shooting near Minneapolis, Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan has demanded an end to the police.

On Sunday, a Brooklyn Center police officer shot and killed Daunte Wright. The killing of Wright, a 20-year-old black man, by a white police officer triggered looting and rioting in the Minneapolis suburb. Brooklyn Center Police Chief Tim Gannon said the officer who shot Wright appeared to have mistaken their service weapon for their Taser and accidentally fired the gun, according to the Star-Tribune.

As officials called for calm, Tlaib used her Twitter account to call for the abolition of all forms of law and order.

“It wasn’t an accident. Policing in our country is inherently & intentionally racist,” she tweeted. “Daunte Wright was met with aggression & violence. I am done with those who condone government funded murder. No more policing, incarceration, and militarization. It can’t be reformed.

Biden Admin Puts Use Of Johnson & Johnson Vaccine On Pause As Six Out Of 7 Million Develop Blood Clots

The Biden administration put a cautionary pause on the use of Johnson & Johnson’s coronavirus vaccine Tuesday after a handful of recipients developed “rare and severe” blood clots. Only 6 out of the nearly 7 million Americans who received Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine developed the blood clots, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Food and Drug Administration recommended the pause “out of an abundance of caution” in a joint statement Tuesday morning.

“In these cases, a type of blood clot called cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) was seen in combination with low levels of blood platelets (thrombocytopenia),” Dr. Anne Schuchat, principal deputy director of the CDC and Dr. Peter Marks, director of the Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research said in the statement. “All six cases occurred among women between the ages of 18 and 48, and symptoms occurred 6 to 13 days after vaccination.

THAT’S 6 WOMEN OUT OF 7 MILLION PEOPLE SHOWED THESE/THIS CLOT(S). 6 OUT OF 7 MILLION. No one has any idea if the clots were there BEFORE the vaccination. This is more of the RADICAL LEFTIST OVER REACTIONS. Jerry Broussard of WhatDidYouSay.org

The statement added that the CDC will convene an advisory meeting on Wednesday to discuss the six cases and offer a determination regarding future use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. 

The White House issued an additional statement to reporters in which coronavirus coordinator Jeff Zients claimed the pause would not interrupt the administration’s pace of vaccinations, as Johnson & Johnson vaccines make up “less than 5 percent of the recorded shots in arms in the United States to date.” He added that the government would further surge the distribution of Pfizer and Moderna vaccines to make up for the pause and pledged work with “state and federal partners to get anyone scheduled for a J&J vaccine quickly rescheduled for a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine”

Adm. Brett Giroir — one of the Trump administration’s top officials on the Operation Warp Speed vaccine initiative — also called the decision “an appropriate step.”Such clots occur regularly in the population, so this MAY or MAY NOT be related to the vaccine,” he tweeted Tuesday morning. “That is why the investigation and pause is appropriate.

AstraZeneca’s coronavirus vaccine, which has not been granted a U.S. Emergency Use Authorization by the FDA, faced similar blood clotting concerns in recent weeks. The European Union briefly paused that vaccine’s use in March, and the United Kingdom has sought to find alternative vaccines to provide to low-risk individuals.

This is a developing story and will be updated with more information as it becomes available.

Ecuador Swings RIGHT: Elects Conservative President after Decade of Left Wing Rule

https://youtu.be/BLkLz8O1-G8

After ten years as the ruling party, the populist left has been defeated in Ecuador.

Businessman Guillermo Lasso, a conservative banker, defeated the protégé of leftist ex-president Rafael Correa, setting the country on a new pro-business path.

“The first action will be to put the economy in order, promote investment and generate employment so that all Ecuadorians do not emigrate, stay in Ecuador and achieve the dreams they want for their families here,” Lasso said at a press conference Monday.

It was an unexpected rise for Lasso who barely won the chance for a runoff with less than 0.5% of the votes. He faced an uphill battle–running against the legacy of President Rafael Correa, a leftist authoritarian leader who governed Ecuador for a decade from 2007 until 2017, when he was sentenced to prison for a corruption scandal.

In the runoff election, Lasso beat Correa’s protégé, Andrés Arauz, a 36-year-old leftist economist. Guillermo Lasso, age 65, received more than 52% of the vote to win the Presidency (his third attempt at the office.) The expectation is that Lasso will be more market friendly and, as such, will likely plan to work with the International Monetary Fund in an effort to stabilize the country’s finances.

Lasso has also promised humane treatment for Venezuelan refugees who are flooding Ecuador, as they are trying to escape poverty and chaos brought about by the Venezuelan socialist experiment.

Chris Wallace Fact-Checks Pete Buttigieg Over Infrastructure During Live Interview — Twice

“Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace challenged Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg directly over his claims about President Joe Biden’s infrastructure plan. Wallace asked Buttigieg about claims that the United States ranked 13th in infrastructure as well as claims that the proposed infrastructure plan would create some 19 million jobs. 

“I want to start with a fact-check of how the Biden administration is selling this plan,” Wallace began, noting that several administration officials and Biden himself had claimed that the United States ranked 13th in the world in infrastructure. Wallace went on to point out that many of the countries ranked higher — such as Singapore, Hong Kong and the United Arab Emirates — were too small to truly be comparable.

“Of the 10 largest countries … the U.S. actually ranks first,” Wallace continued. “So secretary, not to say that everything is fine, but why not be straight about the actual conditions here in the U.S. to the American people?”

“Well, the American people already know that our infrastructure needs a lot of work,” Buttigieg replied, arguing that everyone who’s driven on America’s roads and bridges understands the need for a comprehensive plan to fix them.

“We don’t have a lot of work to do to persuade the American people that U.S. infrastructure needs major improvement. The American people already know it and that’s one of the reasons why there is such extraordinary Republican and independent and Democratic support for this package among the American people,” Buttigieg added.

“Not necessarily in Congress, however,” Wallace replied before pivoting to offer up a second fact-check.

“I want to give you another fact-check. All of you in the Biden administration have been selling this plan as a huge jobs creator,” Wallace said, sharing a video of Buttigieg from a week earlier touting the plan and claiming that it would create 19 million jobs. “But it turns out the study you are citing from Moody’s Analytics says the economy will add 16.3 million jobs without the infrastructure bill and 2.7 million more with it. So it doesn’t, as you said last Sunday, create 19 million jobs. Again, Secretary Buttigieg, why mislead folks?”

“You’re right, I should have been more precise,” Buttigieg agreed, saying that the real takeaway was that there would be more jobs created with the plan than without it.

“Two million, not 19 million,” Wallace pushed back.

“According to that Moody’s analysis, 2.7 million additional jobs if we pass this package — just further proof that it’s good for the economy and taken as a whole it’s going to add jobs compared to doing nothing,” Buttigieg repeated his point, prompting Wallace to ask whether it was fair to say that he and others within the administration had “exaggerated the jobs impact.”

“Look, there are a lot of different analyses about just how many million jobs this is going to create,” Buttigieg pushed back, but Wallace interrupted. 

“Secretary, you’re the one who cited Moody’s Analytics as 19 million and it’s actually 2.7 million, which is a bunch, but it’s not what you said,” he said.

“It’s part of a scenario that Moody’s says will create 19 million jobs,” Buttigieg insisted, once again repeating that the real message was that passing the plan would ultimately create more jobs than not passing it. “Why wouldn’t we want America to create 2.7 million more jobs?”

‘They Sit There And Plot Constantly’: Former Intelligence Officer Says Terrorists Exploit Biden’s ‘Weak’ Border Policies

A former military intelligence analyst warned Saturday that terrorists are plotting to exploit the border crisis and take advantage of President Joe Biden’s policies, which he criticized as “weak.”

“They are constantly plotting to conduct attacks against Americans and harm Americans,” Brett Velicovich told Fox News’ “Watters’ World.” “It’s natural for them to think of ways that they can infiltrate this border. And when they see the weak policies on behalf of the Biden administration, I mean what an opportunity for them to come in.”

“All it takes is one of these terrorists to infiltrate our border to be able to wreak havoc across the United States,” Velicovich continued. “The disappointing fact of all this is that the Biden administration loves to deny this border crisis. They love to downplay this terrorism threat along the southern border.”

Customs and Border Protection announced Monday that it had detained two Yemeni men who were on the FBI’s terrorism watch list. The two illegally crossed into the United States in January and March.

“How many more are coming across the border that we don’t know?” Velicovich asked Saturday, suggesting the Biden administration “just whistled past” this incident “as if there’s nothing to see there.”

The former military intelligence officer said counter-terrorist experts and intelligence personnel agree that “these transnational organized crime groups, these terrorist elements … they are looking to target weak gaps in our infrastructure. They are constantly trying to exploit porous borders.”

He suggested that terrorists would obviously be “looking at all of these weak immigration policies of the Biden administration” in order to find opportunities and exploit it to their advantage.

Former Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Tom Homan said on Apr. 2 that the border has become “a national security crisis” as Border Patrol agents were too busy with migrant children to stop drug smugglers.

On March 21, Biden suggested his administration could bring back the Trump administration’s “Remain in Mexico” policy.

Wyoming Governor Signs Bill that Requires Voter ID at Polling Station


Reported By Jim Hoft | Published April 8, 2021

Republican Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon signed House Bill 75 into law Tuesday that requires Wyoming voters to present a valid ID before casting a vote. This voter ID bill, primarily sponsored by Rep. Chuck Gray, will be effective on July 1. The new bill requires Wyoming voters to show one of the following forms of valid ID in order to vote at the polls:

  • A Wyoming driver’s license as defined by W.S. 31‑7‑102(a)(xxv)
  • A tribal identification card issued by the governing body of the Eastern Shoshone tribe of Wyoming, the Northern Arapaho tribe of Wyoming or other federally recognized Indian tribe
  • A Wyoming identification card issued under W.S. 31‑8‑101
  • A valid United States passport
  • A United States military card
  • A valid Medicare or Medicaid insurance card (wouldn’t be valid after Dec. 31, 2029)
  • A driver’s license or identification card issued by any state or outlying possession of the United States
  • Photo identification issued by the University of Wyoming, a Wyoming community college or a Wyoming public school

Rep. Dan Zwonitzer, a Republican, believed the bill will not suppress anyone’s vote because of amendments added to it that allow voters to use alternate forms of ID, such as a Wyoming student ID, Medicare ID or a tribal ID card, according to the Oil City News in Casper, Wyo.

Earlier this month, the Georgia state Senate passed S.B. 202 that included commonsense measures like tightening procedures for polling locations and requiring voters to present identification to request and cast absentee ballots.

Democratic allies like AppleDeltaMLB, and other companies have charged that the bill is voter suppression fueled by white supremacy, using the default accusation that has become their Pavlovian response to all Republican-initiated legislation.

Face masks are polluting the world’s beaches and oceans, pose potential health risks to humans: ‘Really concerning’


Reported by PAUL SACCA | April 09, 2021

Read more at https://www.theblaze.com/news/face-masks-pollution-beaches-ocean-health-risks/

This month marks the anniversary of San Francisco implementing the first face mask mandate in the United States. Since then, nearly all states have implemented mask mandates during the COVID-19 pandemic. By October, 93% of Americans said they sometimes, often, or always wear a mask or face covering when they leave their home and are unable to socially distance.

“Humanity is going through 129 billion face masks a month, which works out to three million a minute,” according to Big Think.

With large populations of the world using masks regularly as a health precaution against coronavirus, it has had an unintended consequence – pollution. The Ocean Conservancy released new data detailing how personal protective equipment has polluted beaches and oceans all over the planet. Volunteers who were cleaning beaches all over the world tracked the number of PPE they found on the shore. From late July until December 2020, volunteers collected 107,219 items of personal protective equipment from beaches and waterways worldwide.

The Ocean Conservancy notes that the number is “likely a vast undercount of what was and remains out there” because many volunteers recorded discarded PPE as “Personal Hygiene” or “Other Trash.”

“The amount of personal hygiene litter recorded in the app between January and July 2020 was three times higher than what was recorded in that same time period for each of the previous three years despite significantly lower participation levels due to the pandemic lockdowns.”

The report found that 94% of the volunteers encountered PPE pollution during their cleanup efforts, and over 80% of respondents identified face masks as the most common waste PPE. There were 37% of cleanup participants who reported PPE in waterways.

“This is the first time we have some very hard evidence to shed a spotlight on the magnitude of the PPE component of the plastic pollution issue, and really underscores how this is a new additive component to our existing global crisis,” Nick Mallos, senior director for the group’s Trash Free Seas program, told KING-TV.

“This was not a typical type of litter that we saw more than a year ago,” said Amber Smith, litter prevention coordinator for the Washington Department of Ecology. “This is a brand-new thing related to COVID, and it’s really concerning.”

Volunteers with New Jersey’s Clean Ocean Action environmental group removed 1,113 masks and other pieces of coronavirus-related protective gear from New Jersey beaches last fall.

A report from OceansAsia from last year estimated nearly 1.6 billion face masks flooded the oceans in 2020. The group suspects that discarded face masks would result in an additional 4,680 to 6,240 metric tons of marine plastic pollution. The Hong Kong-based marine conservation organization claims that the face masks would take as long as 450 years to break down.

“Most of these face mask wastes contains either polypropylene and/or polyethylene, polyurethane, polystyrene, polycarbonate, polyacrylonitrile, which add plastic or microplastic pollution to the environment,” ScienceDirect reports.

Single-use face masks are believed to be a source of microplastic pollution, which could pose health risks to humans.

“A newer and bigger concern is that the masks are directly made from microsized plastic fibers (thickness of ~1 to 10 micrometers),” according to a study by doctors Elvis Genbo Xu of the University of Southern Denmark and Zhiyong Jason Ren of Princeton. “When breaking down in the environment, the mask may release more micro-sized plastics, easier and faster than bulk plastics like plastic bags. Such impacts can be worsened by a new-generation mask, nanomasks, which directly use nano-sized plastic fibers (with a diameter smaller than 1 micrometer) and add a new source of nanoplastic pollution.”

“Single-use polymeric materials have been identified as a significant source of plastics and plastic particle pollution in the environment,” another study claimed. “Disposable face masks (single use) that get to the environment (disposal in landfill, dumpsites, freshwater, oceans or littering at public spaces) could be emerging new source of microplastic fibers, as they can degrade/fragment or break down into smaller size/pieces of particles under 5 mm known as microplastics under environmental conditions.”

“Obviously, PPE is critical right now, but we know that with increased amounts of plastic and a lot of this stuff getting out into the ocean, it can be a really big threat to marine mammals and all marine life,” said Adam Ratner, an educator at the Marine Mammal Center, a conservation group that rescues and rehabilitates mammals.

It is noted that face masks are easily ingested by higher organisms, such as fishes, and microorganisms in the aquatic life which will affect the food chain and finally chronic health problems to humans,” one study noted.

“Researchers believe masks could compound that issue, as the spun plastic fibers break down into smaller and smaller particles that evade filters,” KING-TV reported. “Small fibers and particles are widely found in drinking water, and such contamination can bio-accumulate in marine life, causing problems for the creatures themselves, and those higher up the food chain that consume them.”

2019 report by Australia’s University of Newcastle found that the largest source of plastic ingestion by humans were drinking water and eating shellfish.

“Plastic pollution is so widespread in the environment that you may be ingesting five grams a week, the equivalent of eating a credit card,” Reuters reported.

“Because research into microplastics is so new, there’s not yet enough data to say exactly how they’re affecting human health, says Jodi Flaws, a professor of comparative biosciences and associate director of the Interdisciplinary Environmental Toxicology Program at the University of Illinois,” according to a 2019 report from the Washington Post. “Flaws says microplastic particles can also accumulate polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), other chemicals that are linked to harmful health effects, including various cancers, a weakened immune system, reproductive problems and more.”

The article warns that microplastics can disrupt hormones and reduce fertility. Another issue is that disposable masks can’t be recycled with typical recyclables, which makes disposing of PPE even more challenging.

“Used correctly PPE saves lives; disposed of incorrectly it kills marine life,” said Cindy Zipf, the executive director of New Jersey’s Clean Ocean Action. “PPE litter is a gross result of the pandemic, and 100% avoidable. Use PPE properly, then dispose of it properly in a trash can. It’s not hard and it’s the least we can do for this marvel of a planet we all live on, not to mention ourselves.”

Hedieh Mirahmadi OP-ED: The assault on ‘White America’


Commentary By Hedieh Mirahmadi, Exclusive Columnist | Thursday, April 08, 2021

Whether it is a Syrian Muslim gunning down “Trump supporters” in Colorado, the attack near the Capitol by a Nation of Islam supporter, the change in laws that protect police in New York, or the campaign against the state of Georgia, we must acknowledge the widespread assault on the conservative, Christian community.  I use the phrase “White America,” though ironically we are comprised of all ethnicities and races but united in our stand for biblical and democratic values that are the foundation of our country. The radical left characterizes us as “angry white people” so they can garner support for the vilification of our principles as part of a broader scheme to undermine our way of life.  It is critical that we do not look at each of these issues as separate unrelated events when each of them is a critical aspect of how insidious movements weaken traditional social structures.

For over two decades, I researched and published about how these nearly identical tactics are used by radical Islamists to transform the Middle East, South Asia, and to a lesser extent, even parts of Europe. For over 50 years, radical Islamists have used outright violence, political upheaval, and large public campaigns to dramatically alter relatively tolerant societies into oppressive countries that eliminate personal liberties and freedom to practice any religion other than radical Islam. Most prominently, we see the results of their efforts in countries like Iran, Pakistan, Turkey, and Egypt where Christians are either driven out completely or suffer tremendous persecution. In Europe, I personally visited distinct neighborhoods in London and the Netherlands where non-Muslims are driven out and the immigrants are so isolated from mainstream society that their communities seem to be parts of a foreign country. 

Islamists have engaged in similar campaigns here in the US, successfully creating a group of homegrown terrorists and political organizations that seek to affect US policy, but their efforts remained marginal. The Judeo-Christian principles that govern American society and its legal system, coupled with a strong law enforcement apparatus, have been the bulwark against any ideological movement fundamentally changing American society.

However, the assault on “White America” that unites Islamists and the radical Left is particularly dangerous, not only because it has followers capable of terrorizing the population, they also have tacit support from the Biden administration, local and state lawmakers, and a large portion of mainstream society. Together these two movements have the power to murder opponents and sabotage traditional legal and political structures.  

The recently enacted law eliminating qualified immunity for the New York Police Department is an important example of this assault. The City Council said in a statement that it passed a bill creating a local civil right protecting the city’s residents against unreasonable search and seizures, excessive force, and a ban on the use of qualified immunity as a defense[1]. The general public thinks this is valuable to reduce police brutality cases but many are not considering the broader ramification of this dramatic change.  From my personal experience working with NYPD for years on counter-terrorism cases, it’s difficult enough to engage in the complex legal world of law enforcement and investigations, but this legislation will make the police department even more hesitant about programs and procedures that could potentially bring civil action against the department. Though the extent of its current application is unknown, this law could dismantle the massive counterterrorism effort in place after 9-11 because terror suspects would cripple the police by filing countless lawsuits that protest ongoing investigations, allegations of unreasonable searches, and arrests under the guise of discrimination against Muslims. 

Anyone who has ever been in a legal battle can tell you, the greatest consequence of lawsuits is not who wins or loses but the emotional and financial drain of fighting them.  It creates many opportunities for abuse and though this bill doesn’t impose direct liability for the officers, it puts their jobs at risk when a lawsuit is brought against the department for their conduct. It will limit the pool of good quality candidates in policing because they would fear the unbridled public scrutiny.  It is clearly a mechanism to harass and intimidate white officers and even Christians by accusing them of engaging in discriminatory practices. Simply put, it will weaken the structure of our law enforcement as we know it, which is exactly what destructive social movements seek to do.

The orchestrated boycott and vilification of Georgia is another alarming example of how these movements operate. We are seeing mainstream social structures such as corporations like Coca-Cola, Major League Baseball, as well as President Joe Biden himself supporting the effort to isolate and punish Georgia for creating voting restrictions[2]. The law protects the integrity of the voting system but it’s being purposely mischaracterized as racial discrimination to inflame the emotions of the public and cause financial harm, which they hope will force the legislature to retract it. The radical left is using social and financial coercion to compromise the sanctity of how we vote in this country. The threat this poses to the future of America as we know it cannot be overstated. Just ask immigrants from Venezuela what happens when an ideological movement has the power to change political safeguards. The result is catastrophic.  

Ideological movements like socialism, communism, or Islamism wear away at the fabric of a society in order to supplant it with a new and dominant ideology. This can only be accomplished by first dismantling the existing strongholds — traditional institutions like houses of worship, schools, political structures, and law enforcement. I have published reports detailing this phenomenon as it relates to Pakistan, Southeast Asia, Egypt, Europe, and the US, but I never thought I would see the same patterns gaining prominence in the US, with the help of large portions of the American people.  The alliance of the radical left with Islamists is a dream come true for Islamists because it gives them a national platform and credibility that was impossible on their own. 

Ideological movements like socialism, communism, or Islamism wear away at the fabric of a society in order to supplant it with a new and dominant ideology.………………. The alliance of the radical left with Islamists is a dream come true for Islamists because it gives them a national platform and credibility that was impossible on their own. 

There has never been a more important time for Christians to defend our way of life. Not only are we facing physical violence at the local store as we saw with the Colorado shooter or the attack near the Capitol, but our law enforcement and political structures are at risk. Remember, the Lord warned us of such times when He said:

“Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.[3]

We cannot ignore this assault on our way of life and we should be compelled to defend the values we believe in. The Apostles faced far worse in defense of the Gospel. They were persecuted, isolated and even tortured but they did not waiver because the Lord told us it would happen. “If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you[4]. Yet they knew, as we should know now, it was their obligation as Christ followers to preach the Gospel so that others would be saved, regardless of the personal consequences. As the Apostle Paul said, “In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evildoers and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of…” [5]

‘Gun Violence is an International Embarrassment’ – Biden Trashes America as He Announces Executive Actions on Gun Control (VIDEO)


Reported By Cristina Laila | Published April 8, 2021

Joe Biden on Thursday delivered remarks on ‘gun violence’ in America and announced his ‘initial’ executive actions on gun control. Biden used this as an opportunity to trash America and attack the Second Amendment.

“Nothing I’m about to recommend in any way impinges on the Second Amendment… No amendment to the Constitution is absolute. You can’t yell ‘fire in a crowded movie theater and call it freedom of speech. From the beginning, you couldn’t own any weapon you wanted to own,” he said.

No, Joe, you’re the international embarrassment.

WATCH:

Biden’s six executive actions include:

  • The Justice Department, within 30 days, will issue a proposed rule to help stop the proliferation of “ghost guns.”
  • The Justice Department, within 60 days, will issue a proposed rule to make clear when a device marketed as a stabilizing brace effectively turns a pistol into a short-barreled rifle subject to the requirements of the National Firearms Act.
  • The Justice Department, within 60 days, will publish model “red flag” legislation for states: Red flag laws allow family members or law enforcement to petition for a court order temporarily barring people in crisis from accessing firearms if they present a danger to themselves or others.
  • The Administration is investing in evidence-based community violence interventions.
  • The Justice Department will issue an annual report on firearms trafficking.
  • The President will nominate David Chipman to serve as Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.

This is just the beginning of Joe Biden’s war on the Second Amendment.

The Joys of Open Borders: Biden Is Converting Seven Border Hotels into ‘Casas’ for Illegal Migrant Families

Joe Biden and ICE are converting seven more hotels into living quarters for illegal migrant families. The hotels in Arizona and Texas will be used to house Joe Biden’s illegal border crossers — and you get to pay for it!

According to a report from Washington Examiner:

On Friday, families will be moved into a Best Western in El Paso, which ICE had dubbed “Casa Estrella” or “Star House.” The hotel is making at least 186 beds available for families. The building is located next to a Starbucks and 2 miles south of El Paso International Airport.

The Biden Administration is using a Best Western and a Comfort Inn up the road near El Paso, Texas.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement is taking over seven hotels near the southern border starting Friday as the federal agency begins placing migrant families released from Border Patrol custody into the hotels.

Hundreds of people who illegally came over the U.S.-Mexico border with a family member will be placed in hotels in El Paso, Texas, and Chandler, Arizona, this Friday as the Biden administration spends tens of millions of dollars to house people despite having its own holding centers, according to internal documents reviewed by the Washington Examiner. ICE has not revealed whether the families will be sent back to their home countries or released into the United States.

The Biden administration faces a growing problem at the border, where more people are coming across between land ports of entry than during the 2019 humanitarian crisis. U.S. authorities had been returning all children, families, and adults to Mexico since the start of the coronavirus pandemic last March, but a change in Mexican law has blocked the return of families with young children who come into the U.S. through South Texas. As a result, families must be taken into custody, but the Biden administration is struggling to house everyone.

New York Will Offer One-Time Payments of Up to $15,600 to Illegal Aliens Who Lost Work During Pandemic

New York lawmakers carved out a $2.1 billion Covid fund for illegal aliens who lost work during the pandemic. This is by far the largest in the country and dwarfed California’s $75 million give away to illegals last year. The fund is part of a larger state budget agreement that will offer one-time payments of up to $15,600 to illegals.

If the illegal alien is unable to provide any kind of documentation, they will still be given $3,200 – the same amount of money Americans were given in Covid stimulus checks approved by Congress.

According to the Pew Research Center, there are approximately 750,000 illegal aliens living in New York state.

Fox News reported:

New York lawmakers struck a deal this week to establish a $2.1 billion coronavirus relief fund for undocumented immigrants and other unemployed workers who were ineligible for federal aid during the pandemic.

The fund, which was announced as part of a broader $212 billion state budget agreement, will offer one-time payments of up to $15,600 to undocumented immigrants who lost their jobs during the virus-induced crisis.

“This nation’s economy has long been built on the backs of our undocumented workforce, and their essential labor that has helped keep our nation running throughout this pandemic,” New York State Sen. Jessica Ramos, a proponent of the fund, said in a statement.

Ann Coulter OP-ED: Derek Chauvin, Human Sacrifice

Derek Chauvin, Human Sacrifice

Source: AP Photo/Craig Mitchelldyer

In modern America, we periodically offer up white men as human sacrifices to the PC gods. Among our benefactions: Jake Gardner, Kyle Rittenhouse, Darren Wilson, the Duke lacrosse players, University of Virginia fraternity members, Stacey Koon and Mark Fuhrman.

The rest of us just keep our heads down and pray we won’t be next.

At least the Duke and UVA human offerings were sufficiently upper-crust to have a few journalists and lawyers defending them. But policemen, bar owners, military veterans and a Midwest teenager? Definitely not our crowd, darling.

Currently, Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin is on trial for killing George Floyd by kneeling on his neck, as it appeared in cellphone videos. You may remember something about this: It’s why America had to burn in 2020.

But the chief medical examiner’s report establishes that, however else Floyd died, it wasn’t from Chauvin’s knee. Oopsie! I guess it wasn’t absolutely essential that our country go through eight months of lootingriots and mostly peaceful arsons.

In lieu of citing some B.S. media “fact check,” I shall quote directly from the autopsy report by the Hennepin County Chief Medical Examiner, Andrew Baker:

“No life-threatening injuries identified —

“A. No facial, oral mucosal, or conjunctival petechiae

“B. No injuries of anterior muscles of neck or laryngeal structures

“C. No scalp soft tissue, skull, or brain injuries

“D. No chest wall soft tissue injuries, rib fractures (other than a single rib fracture from CPR), vertebral column injuries, or visceral injuries

“E. Incision and subcutaneous dissection of posterior and lateral neck, shoulders, back, flanks, and buttocks negative for occult trauma”

In short: No bloodshot eyes and no trauma to any part of Floyd’s neck.

And yet, day after day, prosecutors, witnesses and the media tell us that Chauvin “squeezed the life out of” Floyd. The medical evidence establishes that whatever else caused his death, it was NOT asphyxiation.

That’s the entire case against Officer Chauvin! But the howling mob isn’t giving up its holy religious observance because of one dork in a lab coat. The sun might not rise! The city of Minneapolis could be wiped out! Wait — that might actually happen.

The medical examiner also found that Floyd had enough fentanyl in his system — I don’t want to say “to kill a horse,” because that would be a cliche. But it would be enough to bump off an entire team of Budweiser Clydesdales. In technical medical jargon:

“A. Blood drug and novel psychoactive substances screens:

“1. Fentanyl 11 ng/mL”

That’s just the first few words of the “Toxicology” section. Also listed are norfentanyl, 4-ANPP, methamphetamine, cannabinoids, amphetamines, morphine and so on.

But the 11 nanograms per milliliter of fentanyl is rather important, inasmuch as the chief medical examiner called this “a fatal level of fentanyl under normal circumstances,” saying, “deaths have been certified with levels of 3.”

Three. But George Floyd went up to 11.

Naturally, Baker was quick to add, “I am not saying this killed him.” Please don’t throw me to the woke gods! Leave me to my test tubes! (And you thought lawyers were craven.)

I have a feeling we’re about to see another example of the left not accepting science.

In addition to liberals refusing to accept the science of:

— DNA (the O.J. trial)

— AIDS (we’re still waiting for that big heterosexual outbreak!)

— Cancer clusters and breast implants (billions of dollars wasted and companies destroyed because of the left’s adherence to junk science)

— I.Q. (just watch the reaction to my mentioning this hate-science) …

… we can now add “pharmacology”!

You mean to say that just by sticking a syringe in someone’s arm you can tell if he’s been taking drugs? That’s a lot of mumbo-jumbo, just like the moon landing.

This trial is a total sham, but the entire power of the state, the media, the left-wing shock troops and the country’s finest legal talent is being deployed against Derek Chauvin.

In addition to Minnesota’s top prosecutor, the state has hired Neal Katyal, former solicitor general of the United States — an unheard-of maneuver in a case that doesn’t involve some highly technical specialty, like antitrust. A slew of lawyers are working pro bono for the prosecutor — also unheard of. The state has unlimited resources to pursue Chauvin.

Against this, Chauvin has one lone defense attorney, Eric “Atticus Finch” Nelson. The Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association’s legal defense fund will put up to $1 million toward his defense, and Nelson can talk to the other rotating attorneys whom the fund employs. But unless they’re working pro bono, too, $1 million runs out pretty fast.

The legal mismatch in the O.J. Simpson case wasn’t this one-sided.

In the middle of jury selection, the city of Minneapolis announced an eye-popping civil settlement of $27 million with the family of George Floyd. Liberals are still denouncing Richard Nixon for a 1970 speech in which he inadvertently described defendant Charles Manson as someone who was “guilty, directly or indirectly, of eight murders” — leading to demands for a mistrial.

What does a $27 million settlement with the family of the alleged victim say?

Black residents of Minneapolis are threatening to burn the place down if Chauvin isn’t convicted — and the only reason anyone thinks a jury could possibly return a guilty verdict is that they believe them.

In the darkest days of Jim Crow, the entire country never ganged up on a single individual like this.

Please, gods of wokeness, we ask that his human sacrifice be acceptable!

Throw another virgin into the volcano.

GOP Congressman Says Fauci Needs To Answer For Why His Agency Bypassed Oversight Of Funding To Wuhan Lab


Reported by ANDREW KERR, INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER | April 05, 2021

Republican Rep. Scott Perry of Pennsylvania said it is “very concerning” that the federal infectious disease research organization led by Dr. Anthony Fauci bypassed federal oversight of a grant that funded a lab in Wuhan, China to genetically modify bat-based coronaviruses. Infectious disease experts say the National Institutes of Allergies and Infectious Diseases’ (NIAID) grant with the nonprofit group EcoHealth Alliance, which involved the transfer of $600,000 to the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), described scientists conducting gain-of-function research on SARS-like viruses to make them even more contagious. But a federal oversight board created in 2017 to scrutinize such research was not notified of the grant because the NIAID opted against forwarding it for review, the Daily Caller News Foundation previously reported.

“When it comes to oversight of U.S. tax dollars headed to the Chinese Communist Party, Dr. Fauci seems like he’s literally whistling past the graveyard,” Perry told the DCNF. 

The WIV is at the center of widespread speculation that COVID-19 could have accidentally leaked from its lab into the human population. A World Health Organization investigation into the origins of the pandemic concluded in late March that it was “extremely unlikely” that the virus could have escaped from a lab. But WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said his organization’s assessment of the lab leak theory was not sufficient and that further investigation was necessary.

The Department of Health and Human Service created the Potential Pathogens Control and Oversight (P3CO) review framework in late 2017 following a three-year federal funding moratorium on gain-of-function research. Had the EcoHealth grant been subjected to P3CO review, an HHS panel would have independently evaluated the grant and, if necessary, recommended additional biocontainment measures to prevent potential lab leaks — or even recommended that the grant be denied entirely.

Rutgers University professor of chemical biology Richard H. Ebright previously told the DCNF that NIAID’s ability to sidestep the P3CO framework is a “systemic problem“. Ebright said the offices of the director for NIAID and the National Institutes of Health have “systematically thwarted — indeed systematically nullified — the HHS P3CO Framework by declining to flag and forward proposals for review.”

EcoHealth president Peter Daszak, who was the only American member of the WHO’s investigation into COVID-19’s origins, spoke about how easy it was to manipulate bat-based coronaviruses during a podcast interview filmed just weeks before the first cases were reported in Wuhan.

An NIH spokesperson previously told the DCNF that NIAID did not flag the EcoHealth grant for independent review because it did not meet the frameworks’ definition of gain-of-function research.

Perry, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, told the DCNF he will call for Fauci to testify about why his agency did not flag the EcoHealth grant for P3CO review.

“We seem so cavalier about this approval paradigm for this funding and the definitions seemingly allow you to drive a truck through them regarding what is gain-of-function research and what isn’t,” Perry said. “It seems to me this was done by design to allow this kind of research to be done in these kinds of places without any kind of scrutiny. And this is the result of that.”

Perry said there is a great deal of interest among his Republican colleagues to probe the federal government’s funding of gain-of-function research in China, but added he wasn’t optimistic that Democrats, who control the House, would allow such a hearing.

“I won’t be surprised after requesting to bring these folks in as witnesses have an open hearing about it that those things fail to ever occur. I won’t be surprised,” Perry said. “In the minority, we can’t force it. If they’re not going to allow it or to pursue it, then it just won’t happen in the House side.”

Chinese Christians tortured in ‘brainwashing’ camps: ‘Death starts to look better’

Early Rain Covenant Church in China | Facebook/Early Rain Covenant Church

Christians in China are being detained in secretive, mobile “transformation” facilities where they’re subject to brainwashing, torture and beatings to force them to renounce their faith, a new report has revealed. 

Li Yuese, a member of an underground “house church” in the southwestern province of Sichuan, told Radio Free Asia he was held in a facility run by the ruling Chinese Communist Party’s United Front Work Department for 10 months after a raid on his church in 2018.

“It was a mobile facility, that could just set up in some basement somewhere,” Li recalled. “It was staffed by people from several different government departments. It had its own (CCP) political and legal affairs committee working group, and they mainly target Christians who are members of house churches,” he said.

Li said he was held in a windowless room with no ventilation and prohibited from going outside during the time he was held captive in the facility. There, he was subjected to various forms of torture, from beatings to mental manipulation. 

“They threaten, insult and intimidate you. These were United Front officials, men, women, sometimes unidentified, usually in plain clothes. The police turn a blind eye to this,” he said.

“You have to accept the statement they prepare for you. If you refuse, you will be seen as having a bad attitude and they will keep you in detention and keep on beating you.”

Li said most of his fellow inmates were also people who had been released on bail during criminal detention for taking part in church-related activities. Because police couldn’t prosecute them for any particular crimes, they were sent to the so-called “transformation” facilities.

“They were using brainwashing methods on those of us who were on bail from the detention center,” he said. “It was in a secret location, in a basement. There is no time limit for the brainwashing process. I don’t know the longest time anyone has been held there, but I was detained for eight or nine months. You can’t see the sun, so you lose all no concept of time.”

The Christian said suicidal ideation and self-harm were not uncommon in the facility due to the continuous torture inmates endured. 

“I couldn’t sleep; after you’ve been in there a week, death starts to look better than staying there,” Li said. “I bashed myself against the wall to self-harm.”

“One time in there, I was groggy and was trying to open my eyes but I couldn’t,” he said. “Four or five of them grabbed me by the arms and legs and pinned me to the ground. They injected me with some drug, and brought me back to consciousness.”

When he was finally released, Li said he was in extremely poor health and remains haunted by the experience.

Another Christian told RFA that similar facilities are being used across China, made specifically for Christians, members of the underground Catholic church, and of the Falun Gong spiritual movement.

A lawyer surnamed Zhang from the northern province of Hebei, who previously represented a number of former detainees who are Catholics, said that instead of pursuing criminal charges against the religious practitioners, the CCP simply “disappeared” them.

“Some were sent back home after five or six years, and that was how people learned about the brainwashing centers — from their accounts,” Zhang said, adding he believes such facilities have been running for a long time around China.

Open Doors ranks China at No. 17 on its World Watch List of 50 countries where Christians are most persecuted. 

Churches are being monitored and closed down across the country, whether they are underground or part of the Three-Self Patriotic Movement, the officially sanctioned Protestant church in China. The government has also imposed a ban on the online sale of Bibles and uses high-tech surveillance to oppress and monitor believers.

Other crackdowns on Christians have involved ordering Christians to renounce their faith and replace displays of Jesus with portraits of Chairman Mao and President Xi Jinping, as well as the ongoing demolition of churches

Boyd-MacMillan, director of Strategic Research at Christian charity Open Doors, recently told the Express UK that the CCP is becoming increasingly concerned about the Christian population’s growth and is cracking down on religion as a result. 

“We think the evidence as to why the Chinese Church is so targeted, is that the leaders are scared of the size of the Church and the growth of the Church,” Boyd-MacMillan said.

“And if it grows at the rate that it has done since 1980, and that’s about between 7 [percent] and 8 percent a year, then you’re looking at a group of people that will be 300 million strong, nearly by 2030. And, you know, the Chinese leadership, they really do long term planning, I mean, their economic plan goes to 2049, so this bothers them. Because I think if the Church continues to grow like that, then they’ll have to share power.”


State Dept. disbands Trump-era commission that heightened importance of religious freedom

By Emily Wood, Christian Post Reporter FOLLOW| Monday, April 05, 2021FacebookTwitterEmail Print MenuComment27

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken testifies before the House Committee on Foreign Affairs on the Biden administration’s priorities for U.S. foreign policy on Capitol Hill on March 10, 2021, in Washington, D.C. | Ken Cedeno-Pool/Getty Images

Secretary of State Antony Blinken has formally dismissed the controversial Trump-era Commission on Unalienable Rights, which sought to elevate the promotion of religious freedom worldwide. Blinken, who vowed to promote LGBT rights worldwide during his confirmation hearings, only briefly alluded to religious persecution in a press conference unveiling the 45th State Department country reports on human rights practices last Tuesday. 

The annual human rights reports comprehensively cover internationally recognized individual, civil, political and worker rights outlined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international agreements in nearly 200 countries and territories.

In his remarks during the press conference, Blinken referred indirectly to former Secretary Mike Pompeo’s Commission on Unalienable Rights and dismissed the Trump-era commission, which was a panel of experts formed in 2019 who argued in a report last July that religious freedom and the right to property were more important human rights. 

Pompeo praised the report as one that “reorients us back to the foundational unalienable rights that we are bound to protect.”

“There is no hierarchy that makes some rights more important than others,” Blinken said. “Past unbalanced statements that suggest such a hierarchy, including those offered by a recently disbanded State Department advisory committee, do not represent a guiding document for this administration.”

At the time, pro-abortion and pro-LGBT groups derided the commission as trying to devalue “women’s rights” and LGBT rights. Pompeo argued at the time that the commission was formed as “International institutions designed and built to protect human rights have drifted from their original mission.”

Travis Weber, vice president for policy and government affairs and director of the Center for Religious Liberty at the Christian conservative activist organization Family Research Council, told The Christian Post that the repudiation of the Commission on Unalienable Rights is “an unfortunate development.” Weber argues that it diminishes religious freedom.

“This signifies the downgrading of the role of religious freedom in foreign policy and frankly, domestically as well because the commission had elevated the role of religious freedom and articulated its role as an important human right,” Weber said. A Message from

“So, that’s a negative development in our view that the Biden administration is seeking to put all international human rights on the same level. Certain human rights are more important than others and religious freedom is one of them.”

The commission created in July 2019 sought to define human rights since the definition had “drifted” through the years to accommodate abortion and LGBT rights. Despite backlash from LGBT advocates, the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom praised the commission.

In his press conference, Blinken said all human rights are “co-equal.”

“At my confirmation hearing, I promised that the Biden-Harris administration would repudiate those unbalanced views [of the previous administration],” he said. “We do so decisively today.”

Weber also pointed out how Blinken’s remarks failed to highlight religious persecution worldwide despite the serious issues.

“Christian girls in Pakistan [are] being forced to convert in forced marriages. The Uyghur community in China is certainly being persecuted. I am glad he mentioned that, but there’s also persecution of Christians in China, … and Christians and any others in North Korea,” Weber stressed. 

“The situation of many Muslim-majority countries around the world, including Iran, is very dire. Christians are being slaughtered in Nigeria almost weekly, it seems, and there is no mention of that. So, when we look at the horrific atrocities and human rights violations going on around the world, religious persecution is among them, and it’s totally disappointing that he’s not highlighting that [in his remarks].”

Weber said these are human rights violations that deserve President Biden’s attention. He hopes the administration “reverses its course.”

“By elevating other human rights on par with religious freedom, you’re diminishing the importance of religious persecution and sending the signal that it’s not that important when people are being slaughtered around the world because of their faith,” Weber said. “This is unfortunate because it is important, and it does deserve more attention than a lot of other concerns and rights when you look at the international sphere.”  

Matias Perttula, director of advocacy for International Christian Concern, a religious persecution advocacy organization based in the U.S., also expressed concern.

“We at ICC welcome the progress that the State Department has made on promoting religious freedom and human rights around the world,” Perttula said in a statement. “However, we remain concerned whether the Biden administration is still committed to putting religious freedom as a central principle in the United States’ foreign policy priorities. We look forward to working with the State Department in ensuring that this vital right is protected for all.”

Blinken did call out human rights violations in China through the “genocide” of Uyghur Muslims and ethnic and religious minority groups in the Xinjiang province. He also condemned the attack or imprisonment of opposition politicians, anti-corruption activists or independent journalists in places like Russia, Uganda and Venezuela.

His remarks also called out violence against protestors in Belarus, abuses afflicted in Yemen, atrocities committed in Ethiopia, the executions and tortures committed by the Syrian regime and widespread violations by Burma’s security forces, among human rights violations in other nations.

Blinken pointed out how some autocratic governments have used COVID-19 to further repress human rights, saying this disproportionately impacts racial and ethnic minorities, those with disabilities or LGBT individuals. Blinken also highlighted the heightened gender-based violence toward women and girls around the world due to lockdowns.

Blinken announced plans to add reproductive health back into the report after the Trump administration removed it. The Biden administration is taking steps to “promote women’s health … because women’s rights — including sexual and reproductive rights — are human rights,” he stated.

Weber said Blinken’s remarks signaled how the administration would advocate for expanded abortion access around the globe.

“The other development that stood out in [Secretary Blinken’s] announcements was the elevation of reproductive rights, which we know is code for abortion expansion,” Weber said. “We expect the Biden administration to push abortion in international policy, and I think he clearly signaled that in his press conference.”

Blinken also noted “profound inequities, including systemic racism” and said, “we have work to do at home.”

The administration will work with its allies and institutions like the United Nations Human Rights Council and Congress to demonstrate a commitment to promote human rights around the globe.

Blinken promised the administration would “redouble” its efforts to support journalists, human rights defenders, anti-corruption activists, labor union organizers and other advocates who “put everything on the line to defend human rights.”

“The City Council Are Raging Idiots – Ignore Actual Facts on Crime and Policing in Favor of Radical Leftist Fantasy” – Portland Police Go Off in Exit Interviews


Reported By Jim Hoft | Published April 5, 2021

The City of Portland, Oregon has lost 115 police officers since July 2020. 74 retired and 41 resigned.

The situation for police officers in Portland is so bad that nearby Spokane, Washington is advertising for cops in Portland in a very public billboard campaign.

And police officers are roasting city officials in their exit interviews.

One officer left this for city officials to stew over as he walked out the door, “The community shows zero support. The city council are raging idiots, in addition to being stupid. Additionally, the mayor and council ignore actual facts on crime and policing in favor of radical leftist and anarchists fantasy.”

Oregon Live reported:

They mocked city leaders.

They bemoaned the lack of true community-based policing.

And they were all Portland officers and supervisors who chose to leave the state’s largest police force in the last year.

In 31 exit interview statements, the employees who turned in their badges or retired were brutally frank about their reasons for getting out.

“The community shows zero support. The city council are raging idiots, in addition to being stupid. Additionally, the mayor and council ignore actual facts on crime and policing in favor of radical leftist and anarchists fantasy. What’s worse is ppb command (lt. and above) is arrogantly incompetent and cowardly,” one retiring detective wrote.

“The only differences between the Titanic and PPB?” he continued. “Deck chairs and a band.”

Since July 1, 115 officers have left the Police Bureau, including 74 who retired and 41 who resigned. Two more will resign by the end of this month and one more is retiring. They make up one of the biggest waves of departures in recent memory.

Hunter Biden Casts Doubt On Secret Service Involvement In Gun Incident, Contradicting His Own Text Messages From 2019


Reported by CHUCK ROSS, INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER | April 05, 2021

(YouTube screen capture/CBS This Morning)

Hunter Biden said he does not believe that the Secret Service got involved in a search for his handgun after his sister-in-law and then-girlfriend threw it in a trash can in October 2018. Biden’s comments in a CBS “This Morning” interview on Monday would appear to conflict with text messages he reportedly sent several months after the incident in which he referred to Secret Service involvement in the search for his gun.

“I don’t know whether the Secret Service were, or why they would be. I don’t think that’s true, to my knowledge,” Biden said in an interview with CBS News regarding reports that the Secret Service intervened in the Oct. 23, 2018 incident.

Politico reported last month that Hallie Biden, the sister-in-law to Hunter, reported his gun missing to police in Wilmington, Delaware. Hallie, who was also in a romantic relationship with Hunter at the time, said that she threw his gun in a trash can behind a supermarket after taking it from his vehicle, according to Politico. She reported the firearm missing after she went back to the store to try to retrieve it. Delaware state police, the FBI and Secret Service took part in the search for the gun, according to Politico.

Politico also reported that the owner of a gun store in Delaware said that Secret Service agents requested paperwork regarding the sale of the firearm to Biden. The store owner said that he refused to provide documents to the Secret Service, fearing that the agency would try to cover up the incident, according to Politico. He later sent paperwork to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).

The Secret Service and White House said last week that there were no records showing that Secret Service personnel were involved in the investigation, Politico reported. Senate Republicans noted in a letter to the Secret Service last week that the agency was not providing protection to the Biden family at the time of the incident. 

But Biden referred to the Secret Service in a text message he reportedly sent several months after the incident.

“She stole the gun out of my trunk lock box and threw it in a garbage can full to the top at Jansens [sic]. Then told me it was my problem to deal with,” Biden wrote in the text message, according to The New York Post, which obtained a trove of Biden’s communications before the 2020 election.

“Then when the police the FBI the secret service came on the scene she said she took it from me because she was scared I would harm myself due to my drug and alcohol problem and our volatile relationship and that she was afraid for the kids,” according to the Post.

Biden was not asked in the CBS interview about his text messages. His attorney did not respond to a request for comment. Biden said that Hallie took the gun out of “concern that I would hurt myself or do something.”

“In the moment we knew that the gun was lost, that Hallie had thrown it into a trashcan and I told her that she can’t do that,” he said.

Updated 4/5/2021, 3:45 p.m. ET: The Democratic mayor of Palm Beach County, Dave Kerner, on Monday said he felt “compelled” to issue a statement after watching the “60 Minutes” segment featuring Gov. Ron DeSantis and vaccination efforts in the county.POLL: What scares you the most?

“The reporting was not just based on bad information — it was intentionally false,” Kerner said. “I know this because I offered to provide my insight into Palm Beach County’s vaccination efforts and 60 minutes declined. They know that the Governor came to Palm Beach County and met with me and the County Administrator and we asked to expand the state’s partnership with Publix to Palm Beach County. We also discussed our own local plans to expand mass vaccination centers throughout the county, which the Governor has been incredibly supportive. We asked and he delivered. They had that information, and they left it out because it kneecaps their narrative.’

“We have confronted this pandemic for over a year. Our residents, like all Americans, are tired. And the media is making it worse. They are hellbent on dividing us for cheap views and clicks. 60 Minutes should be ashamed,” he continued.

Original story continues below …

CBS News’ “60 Minutes” was blasted on Sunday by a top Democratic official in Florida and the state’s largest grocery store chain after it aired a deceptively edited segment insinuating that Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) engaged in a “pay to play” scheme with COVID-19 vaccine distribution.

On Sunday evening, CBS News’ Sharyn Alfonsi reported that DeSantis received a $100,000 donation to his PAC from Publix grocery stores, which later partnered with the state to distribute COVID-19 vaccines. “60 Minutes” aired a clip of Alfonsi confronting DeSantis at a new conference south of Orlando, accusing the governor of “pay to play” by giving Publix exclusive rights to distribute the vaccine after he received that donation.

The governor said Alfonsi was “wrong” and spreading a “fake narrative” and proceeded to correct the record, but his long answer was cut out of the segment by CBS News’ editors.

The Daily Wire reported the transcript of the segment, highlighting in bold the parts of DeSantis’ answer that were edited out of the clip.

Sharyn Alfonsi: Publix, as you know, donated $100,000 to your campaign, and then you rewarded them with the exclusive rights to distribute the vaccination in Palm Beach—

Ron DeSantis: So, first of all, that — what you’re saying is wrong. That’s—

Sharyn Alfonsi: How is that not pay-to-play?

Ron DeSantis: —that, that’s a fake narrative. So, first of all, when we did, the first pharmacies that had it were CVS and Walgreens. And they had a long-term care mission. So they were going to the long-term care facilities. They got the vaccine in the middle of December, they started going to the long-term care facilities the third week of December to do LTCs. So that was their mission. That was very important. And we trusted them to do that. As we got into January, we wanted to expand the distribution points. So yes, you had the counties, you had some drive-through sites, you had hospitals that were doing a lot, but we wanted to get it into communities more. So we reached out to other retail pharmacies — Publix, Walmart — obviously CVS and Walgreens had to finish that mission. And we said, we’re going to use you as soon as you’re done with that. For Publix, they were the first one to raise their hand, say they were ready to go. And you know what, we did it on a trial basis. I had three counties. I actually showed up that weekend and talked to seniors across four different Publix. How was the experience? Is this good? Should you think this is a way to go? And it was 100% positive. So we expanded it, and then folks liked it. And I can tell you, if you look at a place like Palm Beach County, they were kind of struggling at first in terms of the senior numbers. I went, I met with the county mayor. I met with the administrator. I met with all the folks in Palm Beach County, and I said, “Here’s some of the options: we can do more drive-through sites, we can give more to hospitals, we can do the Publix, we can do this.” They calculated that 90% of their seniors live within a mile and a half of a Publix. And they said, “We think that would be the easiest thing for our residents.” So, we did that, and what ended up happening was, you had 65 Publix in Palm Beach. Palm Beach is one of the biggest counties, one of the most elderly counties, we’ve done almost 75% of the seniors in Palm Beach, and the reason is because you have the strong retail footprint. So our way has been multifaceted. It has worked. And we’re also now very much expanding CVS and Walgreens, now that they’ve completed the long-term care mission.

Sharyn Alfonsi: The criticism is that it’s pay-to-play, governor.

Ron DeSantis: And it’s wrong. It’s wrong. It’s a fake narrative. I just disabused you of the narrative. And you don’t care about the facts. Because, obviously, I laid it out for you in a way that is irrefutable.

Sharyn Alfonsi: Well, I— I was just—

Ron DeSantis: And, so, it’s clearly not.

Sharyn Alfonsi: Isn’t there the nearest Publix —

Ron DeSantis: No, no, no. You’re wrong.

Sharyn Alfonsi: —30 miles away.

Ron DeSantis: You’re wrong. You’re wrong. Yes, sir?

Sharyn Alfonsi: That’s actually a fact.

“The irresponsible suggestion that there was a connection between campaign contributions made to Governor DeSantis and our willingness to join other pharmacies in support of the state’s vaccine distribution efforts is absolutely false and offensive,” Publix said in a scathing statement provided to “60 Minutes.”

“We are proud of our pharmacy associates for administering more than 1.5 million doses of vaccine to date and for joining other retailers in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia to do our part to help our communities emerge from the pandemic,” the grocery store said.

Florida’s director of emergency management, Jared Moskowitz, the Democratic state official responsible for directing the response to the pandemic under Gov. DeSantis, came to the governor’s defense and called Alfonsi’s narrative “absolute malarkey.”

Soros Backed LA D.A., George Gascón, Reportedly Cutting the County’s “Hardcore Gang” Unit and Narcotics Units in Half


Reported By Joe Hoft | Published April 2, 2021 at 1:10pm

When they are needed the most, the George Soros-backed LA D.A., George Gascón, is cutting the county’s gang and narcotics units by half. It is very clear that George Soror wants to destroy the United States.  Seemingly every initiative he ever took in this country has this one core purpose.

We’ve previously reported on Creepy George Soros and his actions that have destroyed the inner cities in the US.

Anti American George Soros was interviewed by 60 Minutes years ago. In this infamous interview, Soros claimed to have no shame for turning in fellow Jews to the Nazis in World War II Hungary. The Nazis stole from the Jews and Soros claimed that if he didn’t do it, someone else would. This is the man many believe is behind today’s modern corrupt Democrat Party:

Soros was reportedly behind the airport protests after President Trump’s election in 2016. A week before that Soros was reportedly behind 50 Groups involved in the ‘Women’s Protests’ the day after the inauguration. Before that, Soros was connected to the groups demanding election recounts after the November 8th, 2016 election and Soros money was funding more protests during these efforts. And there was information showing that Soros funded Black Lives Matter protests across the country.

We also have reported that far-left billionaire George Soros has been systematically targeting district attorney races throughout the United States. Many of his backed candidates have won their races and are causing havoc across the country.  Soros-backed District Attorneys are causing mayhem across the US:

St. Louis–

Chicago–

St. Louis again–

Boston–

Another Soros-Linked District Attorney Blocks Boston Police from Making Arrests on Shoplifting, Destruction of Property, Resisting Arrest, Drug Offenses… No Deportation of Illegals

Philly–

Soros-Backed Anti-Cop Philadelphia DA Krasner Blasted by Trump Appointed US Attorney for Attack that Wounded Six Officers

And St. Louis again–

Soros-Funded St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner Refuses to Charge Killer of 7-Year-Old Child Despite Suspect’s Confession

Soros also backed the new District Attorney in San Francisco — Bill Ayers’ stepson Chesa Boudin.

And Soros backed the L.A. D.A. Garcon. 

Now Garcon is busy cutting police in the inner cities attempting to address crimes related to narcotics and gangs at a time when the Biden Administration is opening up the borders to drug cartels and anyone else that wants to come to America.

It is no wonder why Soros groups are banned from entire countries.

Lara Logan: Biden’s border crisis is enabling the ‘MOST POWERFUL criminal organizations’ on Earth


BLAZETV STAFF | April 02, 2021

Read more at https://www.theblaze.com/shows/the-glenn-beck-program/lara-logan-cartels-border-crisis?rebelltitem=1#rebelltitem1

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration’s border crisis is “enabling” drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it’s “not an overstatement” to call the cartels in Mexico “the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth.” And while they’re “at war with us, we’ve been asleep at the wheel.”

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

“There’s more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that’s just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?” Lara said. “There’s Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done.”

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

“That’s not unprosecuted, Glenn. That’s uninvestigated,” Lara emphasized. “[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They’ve got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves.”
