NYT Tries To Fact Check Trump’s Tweet on Abortion, Immediately Ends Up Backfiring on Twitter


Reported By Ben Marquis | Published March 1, 2019 at 1:21am

In light of the recent fierce discussion over late-term and even post-birth abortions, Republican Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse introduced a bill called the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which would require doctors and medical personnel to make all efforts to save the life of a baby that survived an attempted abortion, rather than kill it or stand idly by while it died naturally.

Incredibly, that bill failed to achieve the necessary votes for passage on Monday, according to The Daily Wire, after only three Democrats joined with Republicans to vote in favor of saving an abortion survivor’s life, while 44 other Senate Democrats heartlessly voted against the measure.

In response to that grotesque and disheartening outcome, President Donald Trump excoriated Democrats in a pair of fiery tweets Monday evening, calling the left “extreme” for being in favor of “executing babies” after they had been born.

Trump tweeted, “Senate Democrats just voted against legislation to prevent the killing of newborn infant children. The Democrat position on abortion is now so extreme that they don’t mind executing babies AFTER birth.”

He added, “This will be remembered as one of the most shocking votes in the history of Congress. If there is one thing we should all agree on, it’s protecting the lives of innocent babies.”

As if on cue, The New York Times set about the next day with an attempt to “fact check” the president’s outraged tweets, but that effort failed in rather stunning fashion — at least on social media.

Just scroll down through the overwhelmingly negative comments on the tweet from The Times.

The article from The Times glossed over what the bill would actually do — “require doctors to use all means available to save the life of a child born alive after an attempted abortion” — while highlighting criticism from opponents who falsely claimed the measure was “aimed at discouraging doctors from performing legal abortions.”

The article also argued that the bill was redundant due to a 2002 law known as the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, though they failed to mention that prior law had no teeth for enforcement.

The Times article then quoted a couple doctors who insisted that babies surviving attempted abortions “hardly ever happens,” and provided various facts and figures about the age of infant viability to support the notion that late-term abortions are exceedingly rare — around 1 percent of all abortions — without mentioning that the 1 percent is still in the ballpark of around 10,000 such deadly procedures per year.

Yet, the Times admitted near the end of the article that aborted babies sometimes are born alive, and that doctors and patients will allow the baby to die naturally, all while being kept comfortable” — echoing what Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam said in early February.

The article also admitted in the eighth paragraph, “The bill would force doctors to resuscitate such an infant, even if the parents did not want those measures.”

The tweet-trackers at Twitchy compiled a couple dozen of the brutal responses they received from Twitter users to highlight just how enormously the “fact check” of Trump’s tweets had backfired on The Times.

Countless users wondered why Democrats would vote against the bill if the issue the bill addressed was truly so “rare” and uncommon, as if that were indeed the case, a vote in favor of it really wouldn’t matter.

One user referenced Gov. Northam’s despicable commentary, and tweeted, “How can you work for the NYTimes and not know what Northam said, which kicked all this off? He specifically talked about newborns being born and then a discussion on what to do with them. This is why you’re fake news.”

Still another user hinted at Northam’s remarks and noted, “‘rarely born alive’ I guess that’s okay then! As long as they’re just rarely murdered after they’re already born and alive! Hopefully they’re kept comfortable!”

There isn’t near enough room here to include all of the saddened or snarky replies to The Times, but suffice it to say, the effort to “fact check” the president’s righteous and justified anger while defending Democrats voting against saving the life of newborn infants did not go over well, at all.

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


Written by Wes Walker on December 28, 2018

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

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

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

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

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

Governor Jerry Brown issued a statement after the shooting.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Is this really so hard to understand?

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


Written by Wes Walker on December 18, 2018

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Watch the News report here:

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

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

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

But Democrats try to claim WE are the heartless ones?

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

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

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?
