Three More Border Patrol Agents Assaulted in South Texas


Illegal immigrants attempting to avoid capture assaulted three more Rio Grande Valley Sector Border Patrol agents over the weekend. One of the incidents involved alleged drug smugglers.

Border Patrol agents responded to a tip that a group of men were smuggling large bundles across the Rio Grande River border with Mexico near the town of Roma, Texas, on Sunday. When the agents arrived, the smugglers abandoned their cargo and attempted to flee back to Mexico, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

One of the agents intercepted a fleeing smuggler, officials stated. The smuggler began to fight the agent. He allegedly pushed and scratched the agent in an attempt to avoid arrest. A second agent assisted the struggling colleague and the two agents took the man into custody.

A records check on the man revealed he has previous arrests on drug charges. He also has a history of two deportations. 

The other smugglers escaped, but not before the agents were able to seize the bundles, weighing a total of 150 pounds. Officials estimated the value at $120,000.

Agents working near Rio Grande City came upon a man who crossed the border. As the agent attempted to arrest him, he became combative and struck the agent in the chest. The agent subdued the man and placed him under arrest. A background investigation revealed the man to be a Mexican national.

On Friday, an agent assigned to the Rio Grande City station came upon an illegal immigrant who attempted to enter the U.S. near Roma, officials said. As the agent attempted to take the man into custody, the illegal immigrant threw a handful of dirt in the agent’s face. After regaining his vision, the agent place the man under arrest. Agents then learned the illegal immigrant is from Honduras.

These assaults come on the heals of four others in the same sector, Breitbart Texas reported. The attacks all occurred during a one-week period.

More than 300 Border Patrol agents were assaulted in the first six months of Fiscal Year 2018, officials reported. This compares to 462 during the same period in FY 2017.

Khan’s London: Lead Surgeon Says Hospital Like Afghan War Zone, Two More Killed Overnight


Reported by Liam Deacon | 5 Apr 2018

Hospitals in Mayor Sadiq Khan’s London resemble those in a war zone, a senior surgeon working to save victims of the capital’s surging violent crime wave has said.

The shock comments made Thursday morning come after two more men were killed overnight, a couple of days after another night of violence saw a boy, 16, stabbed to death and a 17-year-old girl shot in a “drive by”.

Wednesday night’s killings, both in Hackney, East London, brought the death toll from suspected murder in the capital to 50 so far this year, pulling away from New York City, which London overtook at the weekend.

Dr. Mark Griffiths, the lead surgeon at Barts Health NHS Trust in East London, said that knife and gun wounds had moved from a “niche” part of his job to a daily chunk of his workload, and a growing number of victims were “children”.

“Some of my military colleagues have described their practice here as similar to being at [Camp] Bastion,” Dr Griffiths told the Today programme on BBC Radio 4.

“We used to look after people in their twenties. Now people are often in their mid to late teens and children in school uniforms are being admitted under our care with knife and gun wounds.”

He added: “Whereas a young boy being stabbed five or six years ago would have been a horror story, now it’s normal.

People expect to see people being killed on a daily basis. Members of the public who are not involved in gangs or violence let this pass without comment and you get the society you deserve if you ignore violence.”

On Wednesday, Mayor Khan responded to the crisis by blaming “Tory” cuts to the police, and claiming the crime was affecting other areas of the UK, too. Meanwhile, Amber Rudd, the Home Secretary, has demanded that social media firms censor online content in response to the crime wave, claiming that deleting videos will help save lives.

A Home Office spokesman said: “Gangs often post videos online that seek to incite violence or glamorise criminality to influence young people.

“The instant nature of social media also means that plans develop rapidly and disputes can escalate very quickly.”

Build the wall, pass Kate’s Law, and tell Democrats to go to hell

Kate Steinle Senate Judiciary Committee hearing | Mark Wilson | Getty Images

President Donald Trump is outraged at the outcome of the Kate Steinle murder trial, in which accused killer Jose Ines Garcia Zarate was found not guilty by a California jury on Thursday. His outrage is justified.

On July 1, 2015, the 32-year-old Steinle was shot in the back on Pier 14 in San Francisco while she was walking with her father. No one denies that Zarate shot her, but he claimed that he found a handgun wrapped in a T-shirt under a bench on the pier and that it fired accidentally as he tried to extract it.

Zarate was found not guilty of murder and not guilty of the lesser charges of involuntary manslaughter and assault with a deadly weapon. He was convicted of illegally possessing a firearm, a sentence that carries up to three years. Federal immigration officials have stated that Zarate will be deported for a sixth time after he serves jail time.

Before the shooting, Zarate, an illegal immigrant who was deported five times previously, had been released from jail where he was being held on drug charges. He was released because of San Francisco’s sanctuary city polices, contrary to the will of federal immigration authorities who wanted him detained. He then went on to kill Steinle. 

President Trump called the verdict in Zarate’s trial a “disgrace.” He accused the previous administration of failing to protect the U.S. border and the Democratic party of being weak on crime. He also repeated his call to build a wall on the southern border.

President Trump’s tweets reflect the anger felt among his voters at the injustice of Kate Steinle’s death.

The issue is not that illegal immigrants commit a disproportionate number of crimes compared to American citizens. It is that every crime committed by an illegal immigrant is preventable if the United States would enforce its immigration laws and secure the border.

On the campaign trail in 2016, Trump consistently brought up Kate Steinle’s murder during while giving his pitch to voters on why the U.S. needs stricter immigration laws, tougher border enforcement, and an end to sanctuary city policies. Trump strongly supported the passage of Kate’s Law, which would increase penalties for those who attempt to re-enter the country after deportation, as Zarate did.

Every American with common sense understands that cities do not have the right to lawlessly nullify immigration law and endanger Americans. And someone who enters the United States illegally and commits crimes should be deported and never allowed back.

But that is not the case on the ground today, and so far Congress has been unwilling to act. Kate’s Law remains stalled in the U.S Senate. Funding for border security is hotly contested, as Congress debates extending current government spending levels through Dec. 22 to avoid government shutdown. Meanwhile, some Republicans are instead working to include a deal for DACA amnesty in the spending bill to be passed before the end of this year.

The American people cry out for justice. They want to be protected. They want American borders to be respected. They want illegal immigrant criminals expelled from this country. And instead, Congress is looking for ways to jam an amnesty package into a last-minute spending bill after sitting on its hands all year long and breaking other promises to repeal Obamacare and cut taxes.

President Trump is right that Democrats will pay a big price in the 2018 elections if they continue to obstruct the enforcement of American immigration law, but he doesn’t go far enough. If Republicans fail to deliver on tougher immigration enforcement, if they pass amnesty first instead, they will pay a far greater price for betraying their promises and wasting their time in power.

There are several actions the government can take to address the injustice of this pathetic verdict and ensure that there will be no more deaths like Kate Steinle’s. First, Attorney General Jeff Sessions should indict Zarate as an illegal immigrant in possession of a firearm. This is the action Trump’s executive branch can immediately take.

Next, Congress should unilaterally defund sanctuary cities and tie Kate’s Law to next week’s spending resolution. If the Democrats object to enforcing federal immigration law, if they threaten a government shutdown to stop an effort to prevent another American death at the hands of a deported illegal immigrant, let them.

Let them attempt to defend their indefensible destruction of America.

Woman Ordered to Take Down Pro-Trump Signs Would Rather Go to Jail Than Remove Them


Posted by Katherine Rodriguez | 21 Sep 2017

A Maine woman says she would rather risk jail time than take down her yard signs in support of President Trump after city officials said she had to remove them.

Officials from the city of Rockland told Susan Reitman, 75, that she had to take down her signs or face fines because the signs violate a local ordinance, the Daily Mail reported.

“I was shocked,” she said. “This is my freedom of speech. People have a right to voice their opinion.”

The signs, which hang over her front gate, read “I Love Trump” and “He Won, Get Over It.”

A code enforcement officer from the city told Reitman that, under the city ordinance, residents could only display one sign attached to a structure no larger than two square feet or one free-standing sign no larger than four square feet. Reitman’s signs violate the ordinance because she has two signs that are just over three feet by two feet, according to the officer. 

Officials say that if she does not remove her signs by Friday, she faces fines of $100 to $1,000 per day. The code enforcement officer added that another resident complained about the size of the signs.

Reitman, however, is not backing down. She told New England Cable News that she would neither pay the fines nor take her signs down.

“If I have to sit in jail for the rest of eternity, that’s my choice,” she said. “I guess I’m being stubborn … but I’m not going to back down from what I believe.”

Town officials say that residents can apply for permits to display signs larger than what the ordinance allows.  Reitman added that she was not aware of the ordinance and thinks city officials should change it to allow for political speech.

Rockland Assistant Code Enforcement Officer William Butler argues that his directive had nothing to do with the content of the signs.

“I admire your passion for our president. Truly, I do,” Butler wrote in a Monday email to Reitman, according to the Press Herald. “However, we have received a complaint, and I have to do my due diligence, and I have determined your signs are not in compliance with the Rockland Code.”

“It is your business what you put on the signs. It is the city’s business regarding the size and number of signs,” he added.

Butler reportedly did not mention any threat of jail time in his email to Reitman. 

The Herald reports that Reitman would only face jail time if she refused to follow a court order from a judge asking her to remove the signs. For that to happen, the city would have to file a land-use complaint in court.

EXCLUSIVE: 5-Year-Old Victim’s Father Saw Video of Twin Falls Refugee Rape


waving flagby Lee Stranahan, 4 Aug 2016

Additionally, new allegations against a ten-year-old boy who was involved in the June 2 attack were revealed in court on Thursday afternoon, alleging the boy both anally and orally penetrated the five-year-old, in addition to urinating on her, as revealed by the father in the clip below. Previously, it had only been known that a seven-year-old boy had orally penetrated the girl and urinated on her.

The little girl’s parents, concerned about biased media coverage as well as their own personal safety and that of their daughter, have not been interviewed on videotape until this Thursday’s interview with Breitbart News.

The father told Breitbart News how he’d gotten a call at work saying his daughter had been raped and left to see what had happened:

Victim’s Father: “I finally got covered and I ran across the street, from my work to my home, and there was just a whole bunch of people outside my apartment, from all families, and I just walked into the apartment and, uh… our… they had, a phone sitting there, and they said yeah, they recorded this, you know. You need to look at this real quick, and I pushed play on that. I watched like thirty seconds.”

Stranahan: “You watched thirty seconds of what?”

Victim’s Father: “I watched thirty seconds of a recording that was recorded by the refugee boys of what they…”

Stranahan: “So you’ve seen that video?”

Victim’s Father: “Yes.”

Stranahan: “Wow, that’s… I… I hadn’t heard that.”

Victim’s Mother: “I haven’t seen it. I just can’t.”

Victim’s Father: “With her anxiety and with her condition I did not allow her to see that. I did not watch the whole thing, like I said, I watched about thirty seconds of it. There was a lot more on there that I did not see. But what I did see is… is horrific for a father to watch for their… for that thing. And so after I watched all that, I came outside, trying to keep my composure because that whole family was still outside my apartment, you know, they were trying to stop us from calling the police, pleading with us.”

Stranahan: “The refugee family was trying to stop you from calling the police?”

Victim’s Father: “Yes. They were pleading with us, saying everything was okay, they did nothing wrong, you know – ‘No police! No police!’ – because they did not speak… they speak Arabic, so they had very few words that they can actually…”

Stranahan: “And had they seen the video?”

Victim’s Mother: “No.”

Victim’s Father: “Um, when I watched what I watched, the older brother of the boy that filmed it, or, one of the brothers to the boys, he came in behind me and watched what I watched as well.”

Stranahan: “Now how old is he? He’s an adult, or?”

Victim’s Father: “He looked like he was in his late teens.”

Stranahan: “Okay.”

Victim’s Mother: “But the mother had not seen it, no.”

Victim’s Father: “Yeah, nobody else had seen it. From [the victim’s mother’s] point of view, when they brought the video, the boy that did do the recording, he came to her with this saying, you know, he did nothing wrong – ‘Oh, hey, I filmed it, here you go, I did nothing wrong’ – you know, he stood outside my apartment the whole time – ‘I didn’t do nothing wrong, I just filmed it, nothing wrong at all’.”

Stranahan: “So you watched thirty seconds of the video and it was clear to you from the thirty seconds that you saw what was – thirty seconds was enough for you to see what was going on?”

Victim’s Father: “Thirty seconds showed them in the laundry room, they pulled my daughter around, pushed her up against the wall, pulled her pants off, he dropped his pants, he was trying to get her from behind, you know, they only… no, for the boy that was trying to do it he was, you know, he was only seven to nine years old, so not a lot of… he didn’t know what he was really doing, as you’d expect. My daughter didn’t really, was trying to fight him a little bit, she finally got away, pulled her pants up, ran around to the side of a corner, ran inside a washing machine, hunched down, shaking in fear, while he danced around with his pants down, laughing at her, pointing at her, with all the other boys – you could hear them in the background, doing the same thing – and that’s all I watched. Because after that I was just… man, I don’t want to see any more of this. If I do, I’m gonna do something I shouldn’t do.”

Stranahan: “Could you tell how long the clip was? You only watched thirty seconds, but did you see how long it was?”

Victim’s Father: “I didn’t check. I know it was a couple minutes.”

Stranahan: “A couple minutes.”

Victim’s Father: “I know there was a lot more that happened that was told to me by the prosecutor who had watched the video. More after that, you know, he went back to her, tried doing the front, he, um… oral sex with, you know, oral with her, he shoved it in her mouth…”

Victim’s Mother: “Which is considered a rape.”

Victim’s Father: “He peed all over her in her mouth, all over her body, her face, head… you know, totally defiled her, I mean…”

Stranahan: “Yeah.”

Victim’s Father: “So I know it had to be more than a minute or two for that to happen. And after he was all done, like I was saying, um, before the lady walked in and stopped him, the next-older boy had gotten– removed his clothes, and was getting ready to…”

Stranahan: “Join?”

Victim’s Father: “Join. And that’s when she walked in and stopped it.RAPE American women respond

The case, which has largely been ignored or dismissed by the mainstream media, has created a political firestorm as pro- and anti-immigration proponents have clashed about the assault in an election year where the candidacy of Republican nominee Donald Trump has brought immigration and refugee issues to the forefront of national political discussion. Although the establishment press has given little time to the story that does not fit the Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s narrative on refugees and immigration, the story has caused a stir on right-leaning media through the work of activists like Pamela Geller.

Giuliani: Uniformed Police Officers Not Allowed on Democratic Convention Floor

Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” in an appearance from the site of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani called the convention “the most anti-police” and “the most anti-law enforcement” he had ever seen.

However, he also said that according to “high-ranking police officers” in Philadelphia, uniformed law enforcement was not allowed on the floor of the convention.

“This is the most anti-police, anti-law enforcement convention I’ve ever seen in my whole life. There was not a uniformed police officer allowed on the convention floor. I was told that by four high-ranking police officers, two of whom I’ve known for a very long time. And then I walked the floor for very long time and I couldn’t find a single officer. Go look at your footage.  You find me a uniform. Hillary Clinton didn’t want uniformed police officers on the convention floor.”

5 Devastating Facts About Black-on-Black Crime


waving flagby Jerome Hudson, 28 Nov 2015

URL of the original posting site: http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/11/28/5-devastating-facts-black-black-crime/

Where were these Black Lives Matter protesters after the slaying of Chicago’s little Tyshawn Lee, the 9-year-old lured into an alley and shot to death by a black man seeking gang-related vengeance against his father?

Did little Tyshawn’s murder at the hands of a black gangster–an all too common occurrence in Chicago–not warrant wall-to-wall news coverage or Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson-style calls for “justice”?

No.

Why?

Because the ugly truth behind #BlackLivesMatter is that black people killing other black people does nothing to advance its political power in the same way that one white cop killing a black criminal can.  Despite the media’s overindulgence on white cops killing blacks, there is still a far-larger amount of black bodies being sent to morgues by black killers. Here’s five devastating facts, liberals can’t deny, that prove it.qmeme_1468070305588_874

FACT 1. Over 1,400 more black Americans murdered other blacks in two years than were lynched from 1882 to 1968.

According to FBI data, 4,906 black people murdered other blacks in 2010 and 2011. That is 1,460 more black Americans killed by other blacks in two years than were lynched from 1882 to 1968, according to the Tuskegee Institute.

FACT 2. Black People (mostly men) commit a grossly disproportionate amount of crime.

In 2012, white males were 38 percent of the population and committed 4,582 murders. That same year, black males were just 6.6 percent of the population but committed a staggering 5,531 murders.

In other words: black people–at just a fifth of the size–committed almost 1,000 more murders than their white counterparts.

The figures above highlight a horrific truth that black racialists and white liberals routinely ignore: Lawbreaking black Americans, young black males particularly, put themselves in close proximity to (mostly white male) police officers at rates sometimes five to 10 times higher than whites. This is a recipe for disaster. Thusly….qmeme_1468071197158_427

FACT 3. Despite making up just 13% of the population, blacks committed half of homicides in the United States for nearly 30 years.

DOJ statistics show that between 1980 and 2008, black people committed 52% of homicides. In 2013, black criminals committed 38% of the murders. Whites accounted for just 31 percent. There are five times fewer black people than white people in America and, yet, they consistently carry out a larger share of the crimes? Given this rate, it’s no wonder that there aren’t more assistances where cops kill black criminals.

FACT 4. Chicago’s death toll is almost equal to that of both wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, combined.

There have been almost as many deaths in one American city as there have been in the two major wars carried out by the U.S. military this century.

Chicago’s death toll from 2001November, 26 2015 stands at 7,401. The combined total deaths during Operation Iraqi Freedom (2003-2015: 4,815) and Operation Enduring Freedom/Afghanistan (2001-2015: 3,506), total 8,321.Epidemic of racism

FACT 5. It would take cops 40 years to kill as many black men as have died at the hands of others black men in 2012 alone.

University of Toledo criminologist Dr. Richard R. Johnson examined the latest crime data from the FBI’s Supplementary Homicide Reports and Centers for Disease Control and found that an average of 4,472 black men were killed by other black men annually between Jan. 1, 2009, and Dec. 31, 2012.

Professor Johnson’s research further concluded that 112 black men died from both justified and unjustified police-involved killings annually during this same period.

The Next Phase: All of These Peaceful Protests are Soon Going to End


waving flagby Lee Stranahan 15 Apr 2016

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK – A frustrated protester told reporters at a union-sponsored Black Lives Matter event that he thinks “It is time for people to really rise up against this injustice that’s been going on for too long” and that “All of these peaceful protests are soon going to end. We are not going to continue these peaceful protests while you murder our children.”Leftist monster race

The protester is Nicholas Heyward, whose 13-year-old Nicholas Heyward, Jr. was killed by a Housing Authority officer in 1994 while playing with a toy guy at a housing project in Brooklyn.

In a 2014 interview, Heyward expressed his frustration over the system and “community leaders” like the Rev. Al Sharpton, saying:

I don’t look at someone like Al Sharpton as a civil rights leader anymore. His inner circle isn’t full of grassroots activists. He’s surrounded by flashy lawyers and a traveling circus. I’ve been around for 20 years. In all the cases Sharpton has been involved in, we’ve seen the same routine. I’ve never seen justice – in the sense that officers were truly held accountable. It was almost solely about money.core belief

In February, however, Hayward had expressed some hope at the case being of his son’s death being investigated and the news that police “would treat this as if it were a cold case” according to AMNY.com.

“It’s been a struggle for 22 years of injustice,” Heyward said, standing outside of the DA’s office, surrounded by signs with his son’s face on it and that of former-Brooklyn DA Charles Hynes. “I’m still feeling pain. I’m emotional about the whole situation.”

A spokesman for the DA’s office said the case is being reviewed.

“We are in the process of looking into this tragic case and will review the original investigation,” the spokesman said.Epidemic of racism

Mr. Heyward spoke at a protest in Brooklyn on Thursday morning that focused a variety of leftist issues, including higher wages for fast food workers.

Homicide Rate In Liberal, Gun Controlled Chicago Explodes


Chicago’s homicide numbers this year are the worst they has been since the 1990’s. Data recorded by the Chicago Police Department and The Chicago Tribune show that there have been at least 102 homicides this year, 95 of them murders. The incredible murder rate is the highest for this time of year in Chicago since 1997.

This time in 2015, there had only been 52 homicides, almost half the current total.

The Chicago Police Department told The Daily Caller News Foundation in early February that they were ramping up visibility in troubled parts of town, transferring more officers from foot patrol to vehicle patrol and shut down businesses that were fostering criminal activity.

“While we have much more work to do, the entire Chicago Police Department is determined to keep every Chicagoan safe,” CPD Director of Communications Anthony Guglielmi told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “We will continue to work tirelessly on ways to stop violence, and restore accountability and trust in communities throughout the city.”Picture3

The rise in homicides comes after a series of CPD scandals that have marred the department’s reputation. The Guardian reported in February of last year that the department was operating a secret site where detainees were allegedly beaten and illegally kept from their lawyers.

Since then, multiple questionable police shootings have drawn scrutiny, most notably, the death of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel tried to keep a video of McDonald’s death hidden from the public, but it was finally released late last year. The video shows McDonald, who is black, apparently moving away from police when he is shot 16 times.

Since the release of the tape, protesters have called for Emanuel’s resignation.

This Is What Happens When the Government Disarms You

This story enrages me. FOX 2 reports: Horrific playground gang rape has NYPD asking public for help.”

Another crime in a gun free zone.

New York police are looking for five men who forced a father at gunpoint to leave his daughter behind so they could take turns raping her, according to a press release.

The 18-year-old female was with her father at the Osborn Playground in Brooklyn around 9 p.m. Thursday when they were approached by five men, according to a press release from the NYPD. 

One of the men pulled a gun on the father and daughter and demanded that the father leave the area, the press release said.

Then each of the five suspects raped the teenager, according to the NYPD.

“The father returned a short time later with two uniformed police officers,” the press release said. The suspects then quickly fled the park and evaded police capture.Criminals and Dictators

So when people say they need more police protection do the mean they want the police to investigate after they have been killed, raped, or otherwise victimized?

I don’t think so.

The victim was taken to a nearby hospital where she was treated and released, according to the press release.

The article tells us that an NYPD spokesperson said she had cuts on “her arms, neck, and knees” from the attack.

What aggravates me about the reports is the many people telling us that parks need more police. The people of New York are already overtaxed. We need private solutions.

If you wonder why liberals tend to fear and oppose the private ownership of firearms, it is simply another aspect of their superstitious belief in socialism. Just like they believe the government is better at supplying healthcare, they think the government is the best provider of security. And just as happens in any other socialist economy, the resource in question gets misallocated. Some areas of a city get extra protection (in highly visible and politically significant areas) while other areas (poor neighborhoods at night) experience shortages.Disarmed Citizenry

Even apart from corruption and political favoritism, no bureaucracy can claim responsibility for the security of a city and efficiently calculate what amount of police presence and other resources each area needs. The larger the city the more difficult it is to guess what is needed.

Yet that is what New York State and New York City have done. They have assumed a burden they cannot possibly carry. And then they have criminalized the only efficient mechanism that society possesses for providing security wherever it is needed: privately-owned firearms. Every law-abiding father and mother is powerless to defend a child from an attack.

But the ruling class cares much more about protecting their stolen monopoly on power than they care about the people the pretend to care about. Barack Obama never weeps for the many people who die because they have been disarmed by their own government. He weeps in frustration that he can’t push more gun prohibition. He wants all the fathers in Dallas and other cities to also have no option but to run off and find the police while gangs molest their children.

Socialism is always about depriving society of its natural abilities to deal with the peoples’ needs on the basis of the empty promise that the government can do it better. Gun control is just part of the socialist vision.

Los Angeles Makes It Illegal to Own a Gun That Works


Posted on October 29, 2015 by

Tyranney Alert

The Los Angeles City Council — no collection of constitutional scholars cropped-george-washington-regarding-2nd-amandment.jpgthey — on Tuesday unanimously adopted an ordinance that requires any privately owned handgun to be kept at home, either locked or dismantled so that it does not function. Councilman  Paul Krekorian was behind the vote. Krekorian also recently pushed through an ordinance requiring all clips of more than 10-round capacity to be destroyed.

The Los Angeles Times quoted Krekorian as saying, “It’s unacceptable to live in a country where it’s more dangerous to be a preschooler than to be a police officer — and we can do something about that today.”

Gun Control Supporters croppedThe Times neglected to mention what country Krekorian thinks he’s living in.

Cuz that’s definitely a country you wanna stay away from.

Perhaps I’m just not enlightened, but I’m a bit confused what exactly Krekorian imagines is going on in Los Angeles homes.

I’m getting flashes of scenes involving toddlers out strolling the neighborhood, caps on askew, gold chains hanging from their necks, the theme from “The Sopranos” playing over their iPhones, when some punk from a rival block rolls up on his trike, hauls out a nine and goes to town.

It’s like a scene out of the comic strip “Boondocks.” 

Does Krekorian think that toddlers just spend all their time looking for Dad’s gun, then shooting their friends with it? Or is it that Krekorian foresees a day when the U.N. has banned meat animals and roving burger gangs hunt down the last meat available — little Timmy?Armed

That Krekorian is afraid of guns is assumed, but you would probably be correct to suspect that what he’s really afraid of is the people who elected him to office being able to defend themselves not against criminals but the government.Disarmed CitizenryHey Leftist

And the L.A. City Council might have reason to fear that, having invited illegal aliens of all stripes to rest their weary heads within their sanctuary city limits. So, people who are by definition criminals, who often bring crime with them or engage in crime once they get here, are OK. But people wanting to defend themselves against crime, that’s bad.Criminals and Dictators

Councilman Mitch Englander pitched in with Krekorian, saying, “This is less about gun control and simply more about controlling your gun. It’s really that simple.”

And then, to paraphrase the film “Idiocracy,” government will un-Nazi the world, forever.

‘Black Lives Matter’ Forces L.A. Mayor Garcetti to Flee Town Hall

Black Lives Matter disrupts Garcetti (Mark-Anthony Johnson / @FlyEgret / Twitter)

Mark-Anthony Johnson / @FlyEgret / Twitter

The organizers of the forum urged the protestors to have a “civil conversation.” Instead, they chanted “”Black lives, they matter here!” and forced Garcetti to leave under police guard. NBC Los Angeles recounted: “Garcetti initially came to answer questions from citizens regarding economic opportunity and community safety before protestors began chanting. But the event quickly turned to chaos as Black Lives Matter protesters rushed the podium.”Really with logo

Black Lives Matter organizer Dr. Melina Abdullah, a professor of Pan African Studies at Cal State L.A., posted a list of the protestors’ demands to Facebook, which includes a demand for the resignation of Los Angeles Police Department Chief Charlie Beck, as well as the payment of “reparations” to the community for police violence.

BLM LA Demands (Melina Abdullah / Facebook)

hateBlack Lives Matter protests have been staged sporadically throughout Los Angeles over the past year, in response to the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri as well as police shootings closer to home, such as the Ezell Ford shooting. Garcetti was criticized when he skipped the inquiry into Ford’s death for a fundraiser in Washington.

Since then, Garcetti has been doing damage control. On Monday, he attempted to show solidarity with the Black Lives Movement by explaining, as other Democrats have been forced to do, why it was wrong to say “all lives matter.” The Times quoted Garcetti:Black-lives-matter stop killing each other

“Let me say, you’re right, your analysis,” Garcetti said. “I hate this back-and-forth we hear nationally, where people say black lives matter and politicians say all lives matter. Black lives matter in a unique way, and you and I see eye to eye on this.”

He added: “If you just try to say all lives matter, you write people out of history. You write slavery out of history. You write oppression and violence out of history. You write racism and lynching out of history. So I get why it is important — just hear me out for one second — you’re right.”black-lives-matter-lol

That was not enough for the protestors, however, who turned their backs to the stage and booed repeatedly. Their cause of deathgoal was to stop Garcetti from speaking, not to listen to his explanations.

Garcetti later issued a statement:

Tonight, we had hundreds of South LA residents attend a community meeting – leaders, business owners, mothers and children, who took time out of their evening to discuss the critical issues that matter most to all of us. I am disappointed that our conversation was cut short when there is so much work for us to do together to make our neighborhoods stronger and safer. I believe in our City and my commitment to our shared concerns continues, stronger than ever.

 

Texas Governor Calls for Statewide ‘Stand with Law Enforcement’


waving flagby Bob Price and Lana Shadwick 2 Sep 2015

Texas Governor Greg Abbott called for police officers across the state of Texas to honor the funeral of slain Harris County Deputy Sheriff Darren Goforth on Friday. The Governor asks that all police officers across the state “stand with law enforcement” by turning on their emergency lights for one-minute to mark the beginning of the deputy’s funeral being held in Houston.

“Respect and pride in our law enforcement must be restored in this state and nation,” said Governor Abbott in a statement obtained by Breitbart Texas. “It is time to unite in solidarity to support the men and women who serve and protect our communities. I ask that communities across Texas support this cause for unity and remember the essential role that law enforcement plays in keeping Texas safe and strong.”

Abbott announced a procession of law enforcement patrol cars will gather at the north drive of the Texas Capitol on Friday morning as a show of unity.

The Governor’s statement calls for the following:

  • WHO: All Law Enforcement Officers
  • WHAT: Law Enforcement Patrol Cars Turn On Red And Blue Flashing Lights
  • WHEN: Friday, September 4th, 11:00AM CT

Civilian vehicles could also show a statement of support for Goforth’s family and all law enforcement officers by turning on their headlights and emergency flashers at the designated time.

Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick joined in Abbott’s call for honoring the fallen deputy. “I challenge all Texans to think about how underappreciated our officers must feel, how dangerous their jobs are, how they leave their families everyday not knowing if they are coming home and more importantly,” Patrick wrote in a statement obtained by Breitbart Texas, “if there is anything you can do to help make their job a little easier.”

The Lt. Governor suggested the following as a way for the public to show support for law enforcement:

  • Start calling our officers sir and ma’am all of the time. It’s a show of respect they deserve
  • Every time you see an officer anywhere, let them know you appreciate their service to our community and you stand with them
  • If you are financially able, when you see them in a restaurant on duty pick up their lunch check, send over a dessert, or simply stop by their table briefly and say thank you for their service
  • Put their charities on your giving list
  • If your local law enforcement has volunteer-citizen job opportunities, sign up

Patrick asked Texans to join him in prayer to support fallen law enforcement officers. He will be attending a special service at the First Baptist Church of Conroe Wednesday night at 5:15 p.m. The church is located at 600 North Main Street in Conroe.

This comes in the wake of Deputy Goforth’s brutal assassination, allegedly by a black man named Shannon Miles. The suspect is reported to have, for no other reason that Goforth was wearing a police uniform, fired fifteen rounds from a pistol into the head and back of the deputy.

Over 1,000 people turned out for an impromptu vigil Saturday night at the Chevron station where Goforth was murdered, as reported by Breitbart Texas.

The man accused of shooting Deputy Goforth, Shannon Miles, appeared in court in Houston on Monday morning surrounded by a dozen deputies, as reported by Breitbart Texas.  Miles has been charged with capital murder of a peace officer. The felony charge can include the death penalty.

As reported by Breitbart Texas, Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson said the suspect unloaded 15 rounds into the deputy.

Breitbart Texas has reported about the anti-peace officer rhetoric in Texas, and about graffiti images calling for violence against police have appeared on property around Houston, Texas. The emojis show a police officer with a gun pointed to his head.

Law enforcement officials have stated that this anti-police rhetoric must stop.

A Texas woman garnered an unexpected national spotlight on Tuesday after tweeting that a Harris County deputy deserved to be executed was arrested.  Monica Foy tweeted after Deputy Goforth’s death, “I can’t believe so many people care about a dead cop and NO ONE has thought to ask what he did to deserve it. He had creepy perv eyes…,” as reported by Breitbart Texas. Foy was arrested in her home county on an assault warrant out of Houston. The arrest stems from a 2011 incident where she allegedly punched a former co-worker in the face causing bodily injury.Never Argue Delusional

Breitbart Texas reported that funeral services for Deputy Darren Goforth has been set for Friday at 11:00 a.m. at Second Baptist Church in Houston, Texas. The mega-church is the fifth largest in the country and can accommodate thousands of people.

Islamic Terror Warnings Issued Ahead of July 4th Weekend


Authored by Katie Pavlich Katie Pavlich | Jun 29, 2015

Late last week there were three terror attacks carried out in three different countries after ISIS called for attacks on western targets during the Islamic holiday of Rahmadan. After the attacks, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson released a statement encouraging Americans to stay vigilant as the Independence Day, or July 4th, weekend approaches.

“Today’s terrorist attacks in France, Tunisia and Kuwait are a reminder of the evolving global terrorist threats. We stand in support of the people of those countries and mourn the loss of those killed. Particularly with the upcoming July 4th holiday, here in the United States the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI continue to communicate with state and local law enforcement about what we know and see. We are encouraging all law enforcement to be vigilant and prepared. We will also adjust security measures, seen and unseen, as necessary to protect the American people,” Johnson said. “We continue to encourage all Americans to attend public events and celebrate this country during this summer season, but always remain vigilant. ‘If You See Something Say Something™’ is more than a slogan. In our great country, acts of mass violence will never divert, discourage or frighten us. Today President Obama eulogizes the Reverend Clementa Pickney in Charleston. The alleged killer sought to divide us. Instead, his actions appear to have had the opposite effect in South Carolina, where people of different races have come together to denounce the tragedy and mourn those killed.”against America

The FBI and Department of Homeland Security have issued official warnings about the upcoming holiday weekend. 

Federal authorities have warned local law enforcement officials across the country about a heightened concern involving possible terror attacks targeting the July 4th holiday, a U.S. law enforcement official said.

While there was no specific or credible threat of attack, the official said the intelligence bulletin prepared by the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI alerted local colleagues to the ongoing threats posed by the Islamic State and other homegrown extremists. The official was not authorized to comment publicly.

The bulletins are frequently issued in advance of major U.S. holidays out of an abundance of caution and concern that operatives may exploit the timing to generate greater attention.

The warning comes as federal investigators have worked to disrupt a number of Islamic State-inspired plots, including a planned assault earlier this month on police officers in Boston. In that case, authorities fatally shot Usaamah Rahim as he allegedly planned to attack police with military-style knives.

“No credible threat” means nothing when it comes to lone-wolf attacks inspired by ISIS or other radical Islamic terror attacks. They can strike at anytime. There wasn’t a “credible” threat against the May 2015 Mohammed cartoon contest in Texas either when we saw two terrorists open fire on the event. Luckily, they were immediately killed by prepared police in the parking lot.

Two weeks ago House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes told CBS the United States faces its highest threat since after 9/11. Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee Michael McCaul has echoed that sentiment.

New black hashtag, #WeWillShootBack, urges retaliation: What could go wrong? (Video)

The hashtag #BlackLivesMatter has given way to a new, more proactive meme promising — to paraphrase a memorable line by Sean Connery’s character in “The Untouchables” — that for every one of ours they send to the morgue, we’ll send two of theirs. The hashtag — #WeWillShootBack — is reportedly intended as a coping mechanism for black Americans who feel under siege following the massacre in Charleston last week.

According to Mashable, Taurean Brown, the creator, explains that the age-old advice to Americans in trouble — call the police — is no longer an option for blacks. He is quoted as saying that police killings of unarmed minorities occur too often for conventional law enforcement to be trusted. Said Brown:

We’re often the first ones that are called upon to be nonviolent. I want to change the narrative to say that we have the right to defend ourselves, just like every human being.

The hashtag, which is borrowed from title of a recently published book by Georgia State University African studies professor Akinyele Umoja, has appeared in 25,000 tweets since Wednesday’s murders, including the following:

tweet01

War DrumsBrown is quick to point out that he isn’t advocating the random shooting of white people:

What I’m saying is we have a right to organize ourselves, and defend our humanity. We’re taking the power into our own hands, and not allowing another entity go do that for us.

One anticipates a negative reaction to this campaign from the left, which tends to be anti-gun. Addressing the Charleston massacre in particular, one representative of that camp, veteran Democratic strategist Bob Shrum, said Friday on MSNBC:

I cannot imagine the horror that could’ve occurred if people were sitting around with concealed weapons, this thing started and you had a full-scale gunfight. You might not even have three survivors.

A video of his remarks follows:

Obviously, blacks have the same Second Amendment right to bear arms as all other Americans, but the still-anecdotal premise on which this meme is based — that blacks are being singled out by law enforcement and/or whites in general — should give everyone pause.

Romans 13, Christian Resistance, and the Coming Tyranny


waving flagPosted on May 13, 2015 by

 

 

 

If the Wicked

 

If a nation is not guided by God

 

 

 

 

Good people who don't standIn a previous article I discussed the biblical principle of Christian resistance as it relates to the upcoming Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage. As was pointed out in that article, there are examples in the Bible of God’s people resisting direct commands by civil officials based on a very specific set of higher law principles.

Christian apologist Francis A. Schaeffer wrote, “Let us not forget why the Christians were killed. They were not killed because they worshipped Jesus… Nobody cared who worshipped whom as long as the worshipper did not disrupt the unity of the state, centered in the formal worship of Caesar. The reason Christians were killed was because they were rebels”1 and placed the God of the Bible over the claim that the State and its Caesars were gods. The proof?: “they all act contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, Jesus” (Acts 17:7).burke

This is an old story that has a modern history. King James of the King James Bible wanted a translation that countered the notes in the 1559 Geneva Bible, the Bible of the Puritans and Pilgrims. “For example, the margin notes for Daniel 6:22 imply that the commands of kings are to be disobeyed if they conflict with the law of God: ‘For he [Daniel] disobeyed the king’s wicked commandment in order to obey God, and so he did no injury to the king, who ought to command nothing by which God would be dishonored.’”2

 

“Embarkation of the Pilgrims.”

Alister McGrath comments:

“Notice also how the Genevan notes  regularly use the word ‘tyrant’ to refer to kings; the King James Bible never uses this word—a fact noted with approval as much as relief by many royalists at this point.”3

It’s no wonder that King James “authorized a fresh translation of the Bible to undermine the republican implications of the Geneva Bible.”4

Because of its no exception tone, Romans 13 is seen as prohibiting all resistance to the law of the State: “Let every person be in subjection to the governing authorities. . . (v. 1). The apostle lists no exceptions. Peter makes a similar statement: “Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether to a king as the one in authority, or to governors as sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and the praise of those who do right” (1 Peter 2:13-14). Again, no exceptions. This is the same Peter who declared, “We must obey God rather than men” (Acts 5:29; cf. 4:19-20). How do we reconcile the apparent contradiction?Picture1

Jonathan Mayhew (1720-1766) states the following in his 1750 sermon “Concerning Unlimited Submission and Non-Resistance to the Higher Powers”:

“Thus, upon a careful review of the apostle’s reasoning in this passage, it appears that his arguments to enforce submission, are of such a nature, as to conclude only in favor of submission to such rulers as he himself describes; i.e., such as rule for the good of society, which is the only end of their institution. Common tyrants, and public oppressors, are not entitled to obedience from their subjects, by virtue of anything here laid down by the inspired apostle.”There are a number of places in Scripture where one verse speaks in absolute terms and other verses offer exceptions. This is not unusual. If I tell my grandchildren to go outside and play until dinner is ready, I have spoken in absolute terms. They are not to come into the house until they are called. No exceptions are given. What if it rains? What if a large dog enters the yard? Can they enter the house without violating my absolute and no exception command?

They would not be violating my “no exception” command because there are unspoken exceptions. They are assumed to be operating without them having to be repeated each time a new command is given. They have been told on previous occasions to “come in when it’s raining” and “do not get near stray dogs that wander into the yard.”

The Bible operates in the same manner. In one place Jesus says, “All those who take up the sword shall perish by the sword” (Matt. 26:52). Does this include the civil magistrate? What about the person who strikes an assailant in self-defense? Is this not an exception to Jesus’ “no exception” statement? Since the Bible already discusses self-defense (Ex. 22:2-3; Deut. 19:21) and the role of the civil magistrate (e.g., Gen. 9:6), there is no need to repeat the exceptions since Jesus’ hearers knew He has anarchy and revolution in mind (e.g., Lev. 19:18), not the just use of the sword. Romans 13:4 explains that it is the duty of the civil magistrate to use the sword in certain specified cases. Is this a contradiction? No.Tree of Liberty 03

So then, when we read passages like Romans 13:1 and 1 Peter 2:13-14, we must not neglect the rest of the Bible that is equally authoritative and more fully explains and qualifies these passages.

“Many general statements of Scripture must be open to admitting exceptions even those qualifications are not immediately spelled out. Why are so many generalizations stated without qualification? Because the exact conditions restricting their applicability are not known, or because the “accidental” or providential circumstances that render them inapplicable occur so seldom as to be practically negligible, or because such qualification has already been stipulated in another inscripturated context.”5The Persecution has Begun

In summary, we must recognize that as the State becomes more tyrannical and non-Christian in its social and political policies, conflicts between church and State will multiply. That conflict may make it necessary for Christians to say no to statist laws that will force them to violate the laws of God.freedom

There is an additional reason why Christians must understand the limits of civil jurisdiction and the limits of resistance. Because of a desire to see the current corruption in our own nation reversed, some Christians may take it upon themselves to bring about change by revolutionary means. This is an unbiblical agenda to pursue. There is no warrant in Scripture for a revolutionary spirit.

How Christians go about resisting is a question that needs to be answered in exacting detail. The fact that we have lesser magistrates – state governments, governors, and state constitutions – that can serve as legitimate governing authorities as a means to rebuff civil and judicial tyranny is a viable governing avenue for Christians to take.

ISIS in America and the Importance of the Second Amendment


waving flagPosted on May 5, 2015 by

The push for gun control is a push for assured destruction. A well-armed American cropped-george-washington-regarding-2nd-amandment.jpgpopulation will stop any attempt by Islamic extremists to coordinate a planned domestic terror attack using conventional weapons. I’m reminded of an exchange between Rick, Humphrey Bogart’s character in the film Casablanca (1942), and Major Heinrik Strasser (Conrad Veidt). It has relevance to what happened in Garland, Texas, where two radical Muslims tried to kill people at a First Amendment freedom of speech event.

The Associated Press reports, “An audio statement on the extremist group’s Al Bayan radio station said that ‘two soldiers of the caliphate’ carried out Sunday’s attack and promised the group would deliver more attacks in the future.”

Major Strasser: Are you one of those people who cannot imagine the Germans in their beloved Paris?

Rick: It’s not particularly my beloved Paris.

Heinz: Can you imagine us in London?

Rick: When you get there, ask me!

Major Strasser: How about New York?

Rick: Well there are certain sections of New York, Major, that I wouldn’t advise you to try to invade.

There are a great many places in the United States that I would advise radical Muslims not to go. At the present time, the United States would be difficult to invade, but if gun-control advocates get their way, it would be Red Dawn (1984 and 2012) with a different ending.

Gotta-loveTexas-600-LI
“GOTTA LOVE TEXAS”

The man who is now leading the Islamic State of Syria and the Levant (ISIL), once held as a prisoner by the United States, told his captors upon his release, “I’ll see you guys in New York.” This is why the Second Amendment is so important. As long as Americans are armed, there is little chance that Islamists will try to take over America from the inside. They will be hopelessly out armed.

They would have a very hard time where I live since everybody is heavily armed. Often I can hear gunfire. People are practicing. An 83,000-square-foot indoor gun range is in the works down the road from where I live. It’s “expected to Gun clubinclude a 35,000 square-foot indoor sporting clay range, a 13,000 square-foot retail showroom and a 6,000 square-foot restaurant and lounge.”

Any discussion about the Second Amendment must take seriously the Islamic threat. The Second Amendment is not about hunting; it’s about defending ourselves from threats of force.

Consider the following from Breitbart. “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), sent a message to his fellow Sunni supporters to commemorate the Muslim holiday of Ramadan.

Baghdadi wrote:

“Soon, by Allah’s permission, a day will come when the Muslim will walk everywhere as a master, having honor, being revered, with his head raised high and his dignity preserved. Anyone who dares to offend him will be disciplined, and any hand that reaches out to harm him will be cut off.” 

He went on to say, “This is my advice to you. If you hold to it, you will conquer Rome and own the world, if Allah wills.”

Europe is vulnerable because gun rights are limited. People in the United States are heavily armed. And that’s a good thing.

police_stateBeing of the Boomer Generation, and one who survived the turbulent 60’s, never becoming a “hippie”, as far back as I can remember, I have always loved my country. (Don’t bother posting any hate comments about how you were deep in the hippie sub-culture yet simultaneously loved your country, because I beg to differ.)

With love of country being established, let me move on to say that supporting our nation’s law enforcement and it’s personnel was also considered to me as part in parcel with loving one’s country. Yet what we Americans are observing is a progressive police state with out-of-control enforcers who show a lack of concern for the citizens it serves. We are rarely informed via the evening news of such happenings, yet blog sites such as ClashDaily.com keep us abreast of Crazy Killer Cops, aka CKC stories around our nation. Reports are being told about killings of family pets, who in some cases were at-the -time secured in their own backyards…yet to their demise these beloved family members ended up at the wrong end of a CKC’s 9mm.

It seems that since the beginning of this year I have heard at least 10 or more of these stories, most with dash cam video recording for posterity the morphing of our once trusted law enforcement into something out of a Steven King scenario.

Police State 02Another recent incident captured on cell phone video was where a man was strangled to death by a rear, naked choke hold in broad daylight on a busy city street from one of those sworn to “protect and serve.” Now, I just saw a Youtube video where some kids were doing donuts in a parking lot and street, again in broad daylight. Out of frame you first hear and then see a police vehicle running-hot into the frame, coming head to head with the thrill seeking kids driving a bad-ass ’68 Chevy Chevelle (high school memories I remember fondly.)

Was what these kids did worth a ticket?..yes. But when the two in-frame vehicles came to a full and complete stop, should the cop have flown out of his patrol car with his weapon drawn?…No! Within four minutes the driver ended up in cuffs. Wow, good thing I never got caught back-in-the-day, I did a few donuts myself…cars were fun and fast back then.

Is all this CKC display of trigger-happy, gun-pulling, dog-executing and running-hot-for-petty-situations a result of government Svengalis?…Are they drinking Kool-Aid with mind-control drugs?…or maybe they don’t wear their tinfoil hats at home…and yes, I’m being sarcastic. Whatever law enforcement’s excuse is, they are out of control. With their us-against-them-mentality firmly in place, I fear things will be getting worse. Instead of a motto of “to protect and serve” maybe a more accurate police motto should be “to dominate and destroy”.

NDHSote: I wrote this article before the events in Ferguson Missouri where now pictures of heavily armored vehicles and military dressed “police” have swarmed this small American town. Again adding vindication to my point here. You may think that in the Ferguson case that the end justifies the means. Yet, let me suggest that these same police tactics will be used upon us, we the people, when we finally are mad as hell and get off the couch to righteously protest actions such as…Obama and his pen…or his illegal-possibly-3rd term, or our open borders. Sometimes the end does justify the means, yet just remember in Obama’s world we are the enemy and militarized martial law is his friend.

Clueless, Insane or Downright Evil? (Part 2)


Resist AmnestyEvents in the Middle East, and in Iraq specifically, seem to be erupting with a brutality that few in the West have the stomach, or balls, to comprehend. Many here in the United States decry any notion that we should get involved in Iraq again, saying that the conflict is between the Shiites and the Sunnis and does not concern us. Oh, if only that were true; but upon his release by Obama in 2009, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), warned his American jailers that he would see them in New York. Given the current immigration crisis we now face, wherein the doors have been flung open for all who wish to come in, it would not be surprising if the terrorists of ISIS plan to trek to New York by way of our southern border.

In an interview with Fox News, Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) stated that Texas currently has a record number of “other than Mexicans” coming across. Many of these are determined to do us harm, and Perry warned the Obama administration of this trend in 2012, saying:

“We have record high numbers of other than Mexicans being apprehended at the border. These are people that are coming from states like Syria that have substantial connections back to terrorist regimes and terrorist operations. So we’re seeing record, historic high numbers of these individuals being apprehended.”

“We flagged this issue in 2012 and have yet to even have a response as far as I know, from not just, not from the president, but not even from his administration.”

Even worse, the Mexican drug cartels are in cahoots with the terrorists and are helping to smuggle them across. Filmmaker, Chris Burgard, Trigger the Votedetailed the crisis 9 years ago in a documentary entitled BORDER. Burgard’s account:

A few years back, I was at a lunch with then Minority Leader Boehner. I had just spent several days with border law enforcement, staging on a remote East Texas ranch. The ranch wife had reported Middle Eastern men being smuggled across the river and through her ranch. The cartels sent a message to her sister on the Mexican side of the river: “Tell your sister to shut the f**k up, or we will cut her head off and take it back to Chihuahua.”

Some of the members of these drug cartels are arguably more brutal and barbaric than al-Baghdadi. It was recently reported that Mexican drug syndicate, Sinaloa, hired members of the gang, La Mara Salvatrucha (or “MS-13”), to travel from Los Angeles to recover 30 pounds of meth and $200,000 that had been stolen in St. Paul, Minnesota. Sinaloa’s drug trafficking into the Midwest has been quite lucrative and MS-13 is sadistically effective at extracting information. Two teenagers in the area found that out when they were fingered as the thieves, kidnapped, tortured and threatened

with death until the enforcers were satisfied that they were not the culprits. MS-13 presently boasts over 70,000 members all over the United States. The gang has become such an imposing force that even the pandering Obama administration classified it as an “international crime group” in 2012.

Incredibly, as Obama is enlisting law enforcement agencies to track down MS-13, he and his minions are knowingly allowing gang members to stream across the border in the current exodus. Many of them have direct ties to MS-13, but because they are teenagers they will not be deported. Instead they will be labeled as “DREAMers” and allowed to stay. In fact, the border patrol has been forbidden from enforcing the law, as they have been turned into nursemaids for thousands of illegal children. These children are receiving better care, at taxpayer expense, than even many who are homeless citizens and American kids in the U.S. foster care system.

Cloward PivenIt is clear that the Obama administration, with help from GOP enablers, has made this country increasingly more dangerous just within the last couple of weeks through their amnesty by proxy scheme. All the while, the ruling elite is trying to make it increasingly more difficult for law abiding citizens to defend themselves, as they double down in their efforts to restrict the purchase of firearms and ammunition.

The primary function of the United States government is to protect and defend American citizens. Not only is President Barack Obama failing to protect the citizenry of this country, he is knowingly, willfully and actively putting us at risk. This man should not just be impeached…he should be lead out of the White House in handcuffs!

When Obama drew a “red line” against Syria’s Bashir Assad for his (alleged) use of chemical weapons, the world witnessed proof that our paper tiger President is completely full of crap. Assad crossed that line and Obama did nothing. The message was sent loud and clear: America is a super-power no more. Thus, we have a world in absolute turmoil. Yet, the red line that is our border is being crossed on a daily basis and the ruling class is rolling out the red carpet for those who would love to destroy this country. But “what difference does it make” to a a lawless governmentlame duck socialist? He has a security detail. When is the next tee time?

It feels as if our beautiful America is like a wounded animal surrounded on all sides by wild dogs who are ready to rip her to shreds and feast on the remains. At the same time, we have a President who is responsible for inflicting many of those wounds himself, and now he’s content to observe the carnage for his own amusement.

Clueless, insane or downright evil? You decide.

Jesse Jackson: Get The UN Involved in the Zimmerman Case


by

 

The idea of getting the federal Department of Justice involved in what should have remained a local story is preposterous. But Eric Holder announced recently that his department would be opening an investigation and will possibly bring civil rights charges against Zimmerman. We’ll see. Holder may have bitten off more than he can chew, since there isn’t any real evidence that Zimmerman “profiled” Martin because he was black.

As over-the-top as it is, getting the DOJ involved just isn’t enough for some people. Take a look at what Jesse Jackson said:

 “Congress must act. And it’s time to call on the United Nations Human Rights Commission for an in-depth investigation of whether the U.S. is upholding its obligations under international human rights laws and treaties.”

All because a jury decided that Zimmerman was not guilty? Earlier, Jackson was complaining that there were no men or blacks on the jury. Only women. White women:

“Well, it was a stretch, trying to avoid the obvious. There was no–you speak of jury of your peers: there was no man on the jury—Trayvon was a black boy—there was no man, no black on the jury. So at least the idea of jury of your peers was a stretch all the while.”

The “jury of your peers” is something that applies to the person being accused of a crime. That would be George Zimmerman. And he was afforded a jury of his peers (except that they were women).

Jackson balks at an “unfair” jury composition, but then says we need to get an international body involved to determine whether or not we’re abiding by international human rights laws. But we are. Zimmerman was given a fair trial. Many argue that he shouldn’t have even been prosecuted in the first place because of a lack of evidence. That doesn’t mean that he was innocent; just that there wasn’t enough to prove one way or the other. That’s another one of those “human rights” that I’m sure Jesse Jackson doesn’t want to bring up in the context of this trial – the presumption of innocence until the accused is proven guilty. Even the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights acknowledges that one.

If the UN doesn’t deliver for Jesse Jackson, I’m sure he can call on the Galactic Republic.

Trayvon, The Lawyers, And The Doom Of Emotionalism


A editorial by or Political Outcast; http://politicaloutcast.com/2013/07/trayvon-the-lawyers-and-the-doom-of-emotionalism/#ixzz2ZFHd6XM9

The response from the Left, but more specifically from blacks, over the past 16 months since the shooting of 17-year-old malcontent Trayvon Martin has been one purely of emotion. I like what his shooter’s defense attorney, Mark O’Mara, had to say to the press after the reading of the verdict: “This ‘in your heart’ kind of stuff, that’s not what we’re supposed to do….”

All evidence and testimony, even that from Trayvon’s friend and “star” witness Rachel Jeantel, gave credence to the shooter’s, George Zimmerman’s, side of the story. It is that evidence and testimony that vindicated Zimmerman in the eyes of the jury of six women. Were the jury instructed by the judge before deliberations, “Okay, now disregard everything you’ve heard in this courtroom and just listen to your feelings,” then Zimmerman would have been found guilty and probably sentenced to being Mos Def’d at GITMO. The streets of Oakland, however, might not have been any less of an embarrassing sight; right now the blacks would be whoopin’ and hollerin’ in the streets, jumping up and down on cars, and, shirtless, grabbing their crotches as they shout into news cameras, “Dat’s right, whitey, you gon’ fry!” in blind racial pride and celebration as opposed to doing all of that in their current chosen state of blind rage.

Martin family attorney Ben Crump seemed to get misty-eyed in his response to the verdict. I understand that. He was demonstrating on a personal level the “we are one” feeling among blacks that was being demonstrated at large in the streets. He thought it prudent to invoke the name of—who else?—Martin Luther King, Jr. The Good Doctor’s daughter, Bernice King, tweeted Crump a message that, as usual, highjacked The Greatest Speech in the History of Mankind, “I Have a Dream.”

Emotion blinds and makes analytical thinking very difficult for those who allow it to escape from their hearts and seep into their brains. Natalie Jackson, another attorney for Trayvon’s family, said, “A seventeen-year-old child should be able to walk home from the store and not be shot.” Of course that’s true, but of course that’s not what happened, at least not so plainly. Her analysis is retarded by pure, thoughtless emotion.

Miss Jackson and Mr. Crump, and certainly all of Zimmerman’s detractors, truly do believe that Trayvon was merely a darker-skinned Opie Griffith who was walking home from the store and then simply gunned down out of racial hatred. Their case was doomed from the start, but not out of institutionalized anti-black-ism; it is rather because they decided to keep their arguments emotional rather than logical. Of course, to have been logical would have meant refraining from prosecuting Zimmerman at all since there was no logical basis for it, only an emotional one.
