Africans Slaughter Missionary Father Of Eight Just After He Moved His Family There


Reported By K. Walker |

What a devastating tragedy.

Charles Trumann Wesco was a father of eight and a missionary to Cameroon. Just twelve days ago, he and his wife Stephanie moved the whole family to the city of Bamenda in the Northwest of Cameroon to become missionaries spreading the love of Christ. The Wescos had made several missionary trips to Africa in the past but decided to make Cameroon their permanent home after a missions trip in 2015. After raising enough money to support themselves for two years, they took the plunge. Not even two weeks later, tragedy struck.

Wesco was sitting in the passenger seat of a car being driven by another missionary for a shopping trip in town. He was shot in the head and taken to the local hospital where he was treated by Doctors Without Borders. Wesco died shortly after arrival. No one else in the car was injured.

Dave Halyman, assistant pastor at Believers Baptist Church in Warsaw, Indiana, where Stephanie Wesco’s father, Don Williams, is the senior pastor, said that Williams had spoken by phone with his daughter after the shooting.

Reporting Williams’ account, Halyman said the shooting happened as Charles and Stephanie Wesco were in a car being driven by another missionary to the town of Bamnui from the Bamenda suburb of Bambili, where the family has been living.

He said Charles Wesco was in the front seat, and two shots hit the windshield and struck him in the head. No one else was hurt, Halyman said.

There has been a rise in violent conflict between English-speaking separatists against the perceived oppression by the French-speaking government. In the last year, the conflict has claimed the lives of 420 civilians, 175 members of the security forces and an unknown number of separatists.

‘We’re shocked and grieving at what’s occurred. We’re trying to get over the shock of losing someone as wonderful as Charles was,’ Halyman said. ‘While we don’t like this, we understand that God has a great purpose.’

The missionary’s brother is Indiana state Rep Tim Wesco, who confirmed that his older brother had been killed.

‘He loved the Lord. He loved people. The Lord giveth. The Lord taketh away. Blessed be the name of the Lord,’ he said.

Timothy Wesco now says that the attack appears to have been intentional.

“It appears that he was targeted,” Timothy said, adding later it was “quite probable he was targeted because he was a white, English-speaking American.”

Cameroon has seen violence flare in recent months as English-speaking separatists have attacked schools in a revolt against the French-speaking government’s education system and perceived oppression of English speakers. A former French colony, Cameroon is largely French-speaking, except for the two provinces Northwest and Southwest where English is the major language.

The separatist movement has been met with a severe crackdown by government forces, with the violence bringing the country to the brink of “an emerging civil war,” according to Richard Moncrieff, the Central Africa project director at the International Crisis Group. At least 400 civilians have been killed in the last year since separatists declared independence in October 2017, reported ICG.

Local Cameroonian media reported that Wesco was shot by government forces, but his brother could not confirm that.

That is a huge concern with the rest of the family still there.

“We’re very concerned about the safety of the family,” Timothy Wesco said. While Stephanie and the eight children are still in the country right now, the family hopes to get them out soon, he added.

The family was aware of the risks in Cameroon, with Charles and Stephanie writing in a September-October newsletter about a curfew where “English section civilians are not allowed to safely leave their homes or operate their businesses without risking loss or death.”

“Keep praying earnestly for a return of peace to the English and French sections of Cameroon!” they added, noting their humility and excitement for their religious mission.

Wow.

How heartbreaking to lose someone in such a cold, calculating way. The government may have killed a missionary in order to push a political agenda that discriminates against its own people.

Let’s pray that the rest of the Wesco family remains safe until they can come home to Indiana.

It’s stories like this that remind us how good we have it here in America.

While the #Resist peeps shout that President Trump is some sort of totalitarian, worse than an ISIS recruiter, and ‘Literally Hitler’ for his words — they never mention that we don’t see things like this happening in the United States.

Maybe the Media (D) could report on that aspect of the story since they’re likely to ignore the death of a Christian Missionary on principle.

‘Refugee’ in California Suspected Murderer for ISIS


Reported By Clarion Project | Sunday, August 19, 2018

A mass execution by Islamic State jihadis

A man suspected of being a murderer for ISIS in Iraq was arrested in Sacramento, California by the FBI, reported The Daily Caller.

Omar Ameen, 45, has been in the U.S. since 2014 and faces extradition to Iraq for murdering an Iraqi policeman for ISIS.

The FBI began investigating Ameen in 2016 for fraud and misuse of visas. According to government documents, eight witnesses confirmed to the bureau that Ameen was a member of ISIS and al-Qaeda, and that the murder was on behalf of ISIS.

When applying for a visa and green card, Ameen hid his alleged terror memberships and actions.

Authorities also say that Ameen’s family facilitated the establishment of al-Qaeda in Iraq and, in addition to the murder, Ameen was responsible for planting explosives in Iraq.

Ameen left Iraq for Turkey in 2012 where he applied for refugee status in the U.S. Two years later, in June 2014, he was granted that status. The same month, prosecutors say he returned to Iraq and carried out the murder for ISIS. Five months later, he traveled to the U.S. and entered the country as a refugee.

According to government filings, Ameen said he worked in Salt Lake City as a truck loader and laborer beginning in January 2015. He then said he worked as an auto mechanic in Sacramento from February 2016 through February 2018.

An Obama ‘Dreamer’ Murders And Sets On Fire An American Teen With Dreams

The Democrats are pushing a pro-illegal immigrant anti-ICE agenda into the midterms. Is this a good plan?

Every now and then, we should remind ourselves of the horrific acts that were committed by a handful of Obama’s ‘Dreamers’. We all remember Kate Steinle, but here’s a reminder of the horrific murder of Josh Wilkerson 8 years ago.

Since 18-year-old Josh Wilkerson was killed by a Belize national in 2010, Pearland resident Laura Wilkerson has campaigned for more stringent immigration laws, even appearing in a Donald Trump ad on the topic during the 2016 presidential campaign.

“In 2010, one of the illegals slaughtered my son,” Wilkerson told Pelosi. “He tortured him; he beat him; he tied him up like an animal, and he set him on fire.”

Hermilo Moralez, who was 19 at the time of the murder, is serving a life sentence after he admitted to the killing and was convicted in February 2013.

During his trial, Moralez testified that he beat Wilkerson to death at Moralez’ home after the two had an argument.

Following his arrest, Moralez was first declared unfit to stand trial and was placed in a state mental hospital for schizophrenia. He was declared competent in 2012.

Watch Laura Wilkerson confront Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) about Sanctuary Cities:

Let me be clear: This isn’t to say that every person that crosses the border illegally is going to be a vile murderer like Hermilo Moralez. But isn’t one Hermilo Moralez enough? Yet, the Dems are running ‘Open Borders’ candidates.

That is their plan to #ResistTrump?

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.”

Huck’s Response to Emotional Anti-Gun Marchers Is Best We’ve Heard So Far


Reported By Benjamin Arie | March 25, 2018 at 2:56pm

Mike Huckabee is well known for his calm, warm approach to politics and life — and the former pastor and Arkansas governor just became the voice of reason during the “March For Our Lives” protests.

While appearing on “Fox and Friends,” the politician-turned-commentator addressed the recent demonstrations that are supposedly about stopping violence, but have become essentially anti-Second Amendment rallies where law-abiding gun owners are vilified for the actions of one criminal.

“I salute these students for their passion and their energy, and for their interest in helping to shape public policy,” Huckabee began, extending an olive branch to the young people protesting. “But I would say this to them: Emotion is a terrible substitute for truth.“  March 25, 2018

“It is a terrible substitute for facts,” Huck continued. “And they’ve been used, by believing that if they just ban a certain type of firearm, that things are going to be better.”

That wasn’t just the former governor’s opinion. A vast amount of evidence backs up the view that the left’s “solutions” — many of which have already been tried — would do nothing to actually stop criminals.

“Here’s the facts: Five times more people are killed in America by knives… than they are by rifles,” Huckabee explained.

The most recent FBI data shows that in 2016, there were 374 murders committed using rifles in the entire United States. That includes so-called “assault rifles.” However, a stunning 1,604 murders were committed using “knives or cutting weapons.”

Even hands, fists, and feet were used to kill more often than rifles: Criminals committed 656 murders using just their body.

“It’s also true that over 86 percent of the 20,000 police chiefs and sheriffs in America do not support repealing concealed carry, but rather rather support (gun ownership),” Mike Huckabee went on. “And they don’t support more gun control methods.” 

There’s a good reason for that: As concealed carry has become more common in America, the country has become more safe.

As we’ve previously reported, there was an amazing 215 percent increase in concealed carry permits between 2007 and 2015. During the same time period, there was a 14 percent decrease in the murder rate. In fact, violent crime has been cut in half since about 1990, yet the media constantly acts as if violence is spiraling out of control.

Mike Huckabee’s primary point is so good, it must be repeated: “Emotion is a terrible substitute for truth.” 

The left and the mainstream media seem to be purposely burying facts or even outright lying about statistics in order to promote an agenda.

American schools are actually some of the safest places in the country. Contrary to the narrative, mass shootings in schools have not be dramatically increasing in recent years. Students have a higher probability of being killed riding their bikes or walking to school than by a school shooter.

Huck’s line about emotion over truth is an apt summary of not only the current push against lawful gun ownership, but also almost all of liberalism. One of the hallmarks of being responsible adults is using logic and critical thinking over fear-based reaction and hysteria.

The next time you see a news headline or hear a statement from a protester, ask yourself: “Is this based on reasoned logic and truth, or all emotion?”  That’s an incredibly useful tool to decide which side of an issue to stand on… and in today’s world, detecting the truth is more important than ever.

MSM Won’t Push SC Mass Killing Story Because It’s So Destructive to Their Narrative


Reported By Ben Marquis | March 18, 2018 at 1:04pm

Whenever there is a shooting in which three or more people are murdered, the mainstream media devotes ample coverage to the horrific crime in order to perpetuate the liberal agenda and push a narrative that guns are evil and must be strictly regulated, if not totally confiscated. However, when an equally heinous mass murder occurs with a weapon other than a firearm, the media stays stunningly silent, largely because wall-to-wall coverage of the incident does nothing to further the gun control narrative, and may even work against it by revealing how a gun in the hands of a victim could have changed the terrible outcome.

Such is the case with a recent mass murder in South Carolina, in which WCSC reported that 22-year-old Lovequawn Scott has been charged with four counts of murder for the deaths of four family members in their home. Astonishingly, police caught him attempting to flee the scene covered in blood when they arrived to check out a report from another concerned family member of a suspicious death.

The victims, who according to the county coroner all died of blunt force trauma, were identified as 72-year-old Joseph Manigault, 69-year-old Rose Manigault, 42-year-old Kenya Manigault and 15-year-old Faith Manigault. The weapon believed to be used to slaughter them was not an “assault rifle” or shotgun or even a handgun, but a pair of dumbbells, which the suspect allegedly used to beat the four members of his family to death.

Nor is this the first time that the quadruple murder suspect has been in trouble with the law, as WMBF reported that Scott, who had been enrolled at Coastal Carolina University, was arrested by campus police in 2017 and charged with trespassing, possession of marijuana, unlawful possession of a handgun and carrying a weapon on school property.

But Scott’s rap sheet didn’t begin there, either. WPDE reported in Nov. 2016 that Scott had been arrested on a golf course and charged with a litany of crimes after an altercation with police. In that incident, the burgeoning career criminal was charged with possession of Schedule IV drugs — Xanax pills, MDMA powder and marijuana — other drug offenses, four counts of receiving stolen goods, resisting arrest with a deadly weapon, breaking into a vehicle and the unlawful sale, delivery or possession of a handgun by a prohibited person.

When confronted by police in that incident, he attempted to flee the scene, then attempted to pull a loaded handgun on the arresting officer in the scuffle. He was later found to be in possession of stolen goods believed to have come from at least eight separate breaking and entering of vehicles.

With regard to the murders, Bearing Arms took note of the lack of national coverage of this tragic and brutal crime. Writer Tom Knighton pointed out that the media was most likely avoiding this story because it decisively runs counter to their standard anti-gun narrative.

Indeed, a semi-automatic rifle, shotgun or handgun in the possession of any of the four victims — whether the elderly grandparents, the suspect’s aunt or his young niece — could have saved some or all of the victims from their horrific fate at the hands of the much stronger career criminal who bludgeoned them all to death at his leisure. Moreover, it proves that mass murder occurs whether or not the murder possesses or has access to a firearm.

Had the perpetrator of this atrocity used a gun in the murders, the media likely would have been all over it — though they probably would just as quickly have dropped it once the suspect’s lengthy rap sheet entered the conversation. However, since he didn’t use a gun and doesn’t fit the profile of an angry National Rifle Association member, they have avoided it at all costs.

Billy Graham Joins Stoneman Douglas HS Kids

As news of the death of Billy Graham broke, friends and family of the Stoneman Douglas high school shooting victims gathered at the White House. It was tough to watch but I thought the kids and parents did a great job. The president listened respectfully with no tweeting. But he did encourage teachers to pack heat.

Here’s an editorial tribute to Rev. Graham from the WSJ (you might need a subscription). And here’s a less admiring one by George Will. John Kass of the Chicago Tribune has a good one here about the politics of guns and abortion.
