About a week ago I posted Justin Smith’s erudite essay called “Purging History”. This submission should be considered a part two because the theme is the same and it too is erudite.

 

One thing I am noticing in efforts to preserve Confederate history that too many people are trying to stick up for White Culture. I pray that all history needs to be preserved because it shows where we were, how we got to now AND HOPEFULLY how we can make better choices for an American future that not only is “In God We Trust,” but also is “E Pluribus Unum” – Out of many, ONE.

 

When Americans begin contrasting White America, Black America, Hispanic America, Native Americans and for that matter Protestant, Catholic, Jewish, Irish, Italian, Nordic, et al American; then we are falling for the Multiculturalist delusion over having ONE America out of many past heritages. Just my opinion.

Leftist Cultural Cleansing Rooted in Hate

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 6/17/2017 4:10 PM

 

Constitutional conservative minded Americans must stop the recently accelerated movement to remove Confederate Monuments, because it is a tool used by the racists of the regressive Democratic Communist Party and the Black Caucus to gain more power and destroy our Constitutional Republic. Their campaign uses "white supremacy" as an excuse to attack the Western and Judeo-Christian principles that built America; and in their zeal to create a sanitized fantasy world, where nothing bad ever happened in America's history, they are destroying both American and Black history and eliminating anyone, and anything, that they deem to be "racist", from the public square and the annals of history.

 

States like Mississippi, North Carolina and Tennessee already have laws protecting their historical monuments, while the monuments along Richmond's Monument Avenue rest in a protected historical park. Alabama recently extended such protection to its monuments on May 24th 2017 through the Alabama Monument Preservation Act.

 

Now Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh and former mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, who allowed Baltimore to be torn apart by riots, are leading the movement to remove the Roger B. Taney Monument, on Mt. Vernon Place, and the Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson Monuments in the Wymann Park Dell. The approximate $600,000 price-tag is the only thing that has stopped them so far, but they are considering auctioning them off.

 

In St. Louis, Mayor Lyda Krewson and city treasurer Tishuara Jones are leading the charge to remove a 32 feet tall monument in Forest Park, dedicated in 1914, that depicts a Confederate soldier leaving his family for the Civil War. An angel hovers above them, and the inscription reads, "in memory of the soldiers and sailors of the Confederate States By the United Daughters of the Confederacy of St. Louis".

 

Those people willing to eradicate the Confederacy from America's consciousness seem to forget many things. They forget that Jefferson Davis, although an advocate for slavery, was a hero of the Mexican-American War, a former U.S. Senator and Secretary of War for the United States. They forget that many Confederate Veterans fought with distinction in the Spanish-American War and they are American Veterans, who received pensions and benefits by an act of Congress.

 

As Senator Gerald Allen of Alabama recently noted: "... history itself ... it may be good, bad, or ugly -- you can't whitewash it ... When you start removing monuments and statues ... in a sense you lose history."

 

By and large, most Southerners really do wish to simply preserve the history of these Confederate heroes and their Southern heritage. They have long set aside their racial prejudice, on the whole, even if it was a struggle getting there.

 

However, America could destroy every Confederate monument and that would still not satisfy the Left, especially the Black Caucus and some black and Hispanic communities across America. They would continue this cultural cleansing aimed at white society. Behind their remorseless drive against white culture is an egalitarian extremism rooted in hate and envy.

 

Democrat Rep. Reginald of Arizona fumes over "six (Confederate) monuments ... using tax payer dollars to actually prop up ... terrorism of its day". He has yet to denounce the radicals and the Leftist terrorism that is surging and becoming increasingly more violent.

 

Last month, hundreds of illegal aliens tried to ban U.S. citizens from a city council meeting in Cudahy, CA. Shouts of "white supremacists back to Europe" were fired across the halls and outside. [Blog Editor: Check out Louder With Crowder & Canada Free Press]

 

In an August 2012 New Black Panther Broadcast, Samir Shabazz said, "You're going to have to kill some of these babies, just born three seconds ago ... go into the God damn nursery ... and just kill everything white in sight ...". His hate-filled rant called for bombing white churches and "[burning] up some cracker white supremacy", if blacks wanted to be free.

 

In January 2017, a Black Lives Matter activist in Seattle, a preschool teacher, calling for reparations and the confiscation of white property, said, "We need to start killing people ... F**k white supremacy, f**k the U.S. empire". [Blog Editor: See Occidental Dissent & Blue Lives Matter] And then on Flag Day, we were horrified to witness a Bernie Sanders Leftist gun down Representative Steve Scalise (R) and Matt Mitka, both in critical condition at this writing, along with Capitol Police Officer Crystal Griner.

 

I wonder if these Leftist and Democrats have forgotten that free black men owned slaves prior to the Civil War too?

 

Some free black men owned family members to protect them, but there were plenty like William Ellis***, one of South Carolina's largest land owners, who were in the slave breeding business for profit. Ellis even sold one of his own daughters into slavery.

 

***[Blog Editor: The name “William Ellis” mentioned here is an irony of similarities. By context of Justin’s paragraph I am certain Justin actually has William Ellison in mind, a Black man born to slavery that learned enterprising skills enabling him to buy his freedom and become a wealthy South Carolina slave owner. The irony is there is also a former slave from Texas that gained his freedom named William Ellis. After freedom, he moved to Mexico and changed his name to Guillermo Enrique Eliseo. The English version of his Hispanic name is William Henry Ellis. Eliseo became a Mexican millionaire.]

 

There were approximately 488,000 free black men in America -- ten percent of the black population -- according to federal census reports from June 1st 1860, and of these free black men, there were approximately 262,000 living in the South, with 10,700 or so living in New Orleans. And, according to Duke University Professor John Franklin, over three thousand free black men in New Orleans owned slaves, or about twenty-eight percent of freed blacks in New Orleans.

 

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice told Fox News on May 8th 2017: "I am a firm believer in 'keep your history before you' ... Confederate heroes should be viewed in the context of their time instead of through the prism of modern values.

 

Where does this end? Are we now expected to dynamite half of Mount Rushmore out of existence and topple the Washington Monument? Are we expected to rename Washington, D.C and other cities across America like Jefferson City, Missouri? The Left and the Democratic Party would tell us that "Yes, we expect you to do deconstruct America".

 

The dead stones of the Confederate monuments honoring noble men on the wrong side of history are cut from the virtues of their day and harmless, even if some say they symbolize the evil done by the real monsters from the Confederate and Jim Crow eras. Those monsters are a long time dead, long passed. The monsters of the regressive Democratic Party, those Communists [HERE & HERE], Black Lives Matter [HERE & HERE], the New Black Panther Party and LA RAZA [HERE & HERE] are here today, in the here and now, with us.

 

Some of these Leftists and Democrats are just as evil, if not more so, as the most evil slave traders in American history. They claim to be fighting against "white supremacy" and the racism it perpetrated, but in return, they offer black and brown supremacy, intolerance, racism and hate directed at white people in general. They embrace an anti-American ideology that leads to the abuses and slavery that they claim to despise -- the "re-education camps" and the gulags -- as they attempt to foist their fractured fairy tales upon all America. They are the very monsters they claim to fight.

 

The Long Road to Freedom is being deconstructed. The Road to Civil War is being paved. [Bold Text by Editor]

Christians concerned about speaking out publicly about a corrupt government NEED to read this post by Bob Livingston. Mr. Livingston very effectively contrasts and balances the concept of making a difference in government when the Bible also tells us to be subject to those in authority because earthly authority exists to thwart evil and protect community peace.

The Christian’s relationship to U.S. government

 

By Bob Livingston

Posted on June 19, 2017

Personal Liberty

 

U.S. Flag & Bible

 

“We must obey God rather than men

 

And thus spoke the Peter the apostle to the council, (Luke 5:29 NASB) in response to the high priest’s questioning about why he and the apostles were teaching Christ in the temple in defiance of the council’s instruction the day after an angel of the Lord released them from their prison.

 

And that’s the example the Christian must follow.

 

But in Romans 13, Paul tells us that we must be in subjection to the governing authorities.

 

Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God. Therefore whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves. For rulers are not a cause of fear for good behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same; for it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an avenger who brings wrath on the one who practices evil. Therefore it is necessary to be in subjection, not only because of wrath, but also for conscience’ sake. For because of this you also pay taxes, for rulers are servants of God, devoting themselves to this very thing. Render to all what is due them: tax to whom tax is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor. Romans 13:1-7 (NASB)

 

Some of our more conservative brethren would tell us that there is little we can or should do or say in response to an abusive government because it is “established by God.” In fact, I know many of our conservative brothers and sisters who don’t even bother to follow politics at all or even vote, preferring instead to be content with being “in subjection.”

 

I have even seen some claim that if we so much as question the authority of our “leaders” or point out the corruptions of the politicians and government institutions that we are engaging in a spirit of rebellion; and not just rebellion against earthly authorities but against God. But is it? If we write or speak about corrupt government institutions, politicians or bureaucrats, are we acting contrary to God’s word in Romans 13?

 

To be a Christian, we are to be like Christ. In Matthew 23, Christ told His disciples that the scribes and Pharisees had seated themselves in Moses’ chair (had taken for themselves Moses’ authority) and they (the disciples) were to do what the rulers told them to do, but not do as the scribes and Pharisees did, because they were hypocrites. The scribes and Pharisees claimed to follow the law and held the people to the law but did not follow it themselves.

 

That sounds very much like the political class of today who walking the halls of power in the District of Criminal and in most state capitols.

 

Then Jesus called out the scribes and Pharisees as hypocrites in the eight “woes” he uttered as recorded in verses 13 through 29, pointing out their wrongdoing.

 

The Apostle Paul was imprisoned, stoned, beaten and left for dead for obeying God rather than man. In Acts 22 we read that after Paul was seized in Jerusalem because he “preaches to all men everywhere against our people and the Law and this place; and besides he has even brought Greeks into the temple and has defiled this holy place (Acts 21:28 NASB),” he was taken away by Roman guards at the direction of the Jews and stretched out with thongs so as to be scourged. The text reads:

 

But when they stretched him out with thongs, Paul said to the centurion who was standing by, “Is it lawful for you to scourge a man who is a Roman and uncondemned?” When the centurion heard this, he went to the commander and told him, saying, “What are you about to do? For this man is a Roman.” The commander came and said to him, “Tell me, are you a Roman?” And he said, “Yes.” The commander answered, “I acquired this citizenship with a large sum of money.” And Paul said, “But I was actually born a citizen.” Therefore those who were about to examine him immediately let go of him; and the commander also was afraid when he found out that he was a Roman, and because he had put him in chains. Acts 22:25-29 (NASB)

 

What Paul did here was to invoke his rights as a citizen. He did so again in Acts 25:11 when he appealed to Caesar over his imprisonment, defying the Jewish ruling authorities, who he believed he had not wronged.

 

So clearly our example in Scripture is we can use the legal rights available to us under the laws.

 

Now back to Romans 13. America’s is designed as a citizen-oriented representative government, not a monarchy or dictatorship. The Constitution was created as chains to bind men’s powers. Every politician in America swears an oath to abide by it. The powers they have they get from the Constitution.

 

So understanding Romans 13 in context of American government we should read Romans 13 this way, as Chuck Baldwin has pointed out:

 

Every person is to be in subjection to the [U.S. Constitution]. For there is no [Constitution] except from God, and [it is] established by God. Therefore whoever resists [the Constitution] has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed [the Constitution] will receive condemnation upon themselves. For [the Constitution is] not a cause of fear for good behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of [the Constitution]? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same; for [the Constitution] is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for [the Constitution] does not bear the sword for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an avenger who brings wrath on the one who practices evil. Therefore [the Constitution] is necessary to be in subjection, not only because of wrath, but also for conscience’ sake. For because of this you also pay taxes, for [the Constitution is a servant] of God, devoting [itself] to this very thing. Render to all what is due them: tax to whom tax is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor. Romans 13:1-7 (NASB)

 

The 1st Amendment protects (to some extent) our freedom to engage in speech and to petition government for redress of grievances. When we point out in speech or writing the corrupt nature of politicians and government institutions, and how they have exceeded the authority granted them under the Constitution, we are doing no more than Christ did when he called out the scribes and Pharisees, and no more than Paul did when he invoked his rights as a Roman citizen under Roman law.

 

So we can be politically active and not be in violation of God’s law. Telling our friends and neighbors that our institutions and politicians are corrupt is not a violation of God’s law. Guaranteeing our ability to inform others of the government’s transgressions so they can petition their representatives intelligently is precisely one of the 1st Amendment’s purposes. Engaging in political discourse or pointing out corruption is neither a violation of man’s law nor God’s. And we are to obey the law whether the “leaders” do so or not, as Christ told his disciples.

 

But we should also remember Paul’s admonition in Titus 3:2-5.

 

to malign no one, to be peaceable, gentle, showing every consideration for all men. For we also once were foolish ourselves, disobedient, deceived, enslaved to various lusts and pleasures, spending our life in malice and envy, hateful, hating one another. But when the kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared, He saved us

I am grateful the Youtube channel RedPill News placed the entire last night Hannity broadcast (ad free) online already. The entire episode is worth watching, but the part I am most interested in is Sean Hannity’s opening monologue. The opening is an indictment of the Leftist Deep State pulling all stops to bring down President Trump AND all Trump supporters including Trump family members.

 

This is civil war kind of stuff! Eventually the Left will push Conservative Americans – AND I am not talking about the usual suspects of Right Wing Extremists – to take violent reprisals against the Left. American Conservatives – despite fake news accusations – have operated peaceful rallies for their causes. The ONLY hint of violence in Conservative rallies is when a Leftist anarchist OR anarchists openly tried to disrupt said Conservative rally.

Share the Hannity opening monologue and get angry with the American Left. You should almost view the episode as a prophetic warning of an attempted coup d’état to end President Trump and continue Obama’s unconstitutional agenda to fundamentally transform America into a Leftist despotic government and society.

While Dems blame Conservatives for inspiring Leftist assassin James T. Hodgkinson, Pamela Geller has a better guess. Geller believes years vitriolic hate spewed by the Left and reaching a zenith with hatred directed toward President Trump is the primary cause of an assassination attempt. Geller moves the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to the top of violence pushing list.

Pamela Geller Column: J’ACCUSE THE LEFT OF WAR!

 

HOW THE LEFT DESTROYS THE NATION

Go over to Jihad Watch and read my latest report on the left’s war on freedom and America.

 

Yesterday’s shooting by an SPLC (Southern Poverty Law Center) supporting, Bernie Sanders devotee is the obvious and logical consequence of the left’s treasonous war on America. This is but another assassination attempt by a left-lauded Southern Poverty Law center supporter. SPLC, a vicious hate and smear machine, is held up as some kind of authority by elite media and academic institutions. SPLC enthusiast Floyd Corkins shot up the Family Research Council with the hope of killing as many employees as possible in August 2012. But this is just the tip of the iceberg.

For years, the left and its media lapdogs have created narratives out of whole cloth about the impending violence from the right. President Obama, inciter-in-chief, regularly used violent rhetoric to gin up the Democrats: “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.” He has supported the most violent, seditious movements of 21st-century America (Black Lives Matter, Occupy Wall Street, Muslim Brotherhood groups, etc.) while directing the Department of Homeland Security to track “right wing extremists” — in other words, Americans like you and me.

 

Here are some choice and sparsely reported quotes from Barack Obama:

 

“My administration is the only thing between you and the pitchforks.” Obama to CEOs.
 

“Get in Their Faces!” Obama to his doorknockers.
 

“I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!” Obama to ACORN crowd.
 

“Punch back twice as hard!” Obama to his Obomunists.
 

“We talk to these folksso I know whose ass to kick.” Obama to the Left on the private sector.


“A Republican victory would mean hand to hand combat.” Obama to supporters.


“It’s time to Fight for it.” Obama in a speech to his supporters.


“Punish your enemies.” Obama to Latino supporters.


“I’m itching for a fight.” Obama to Democrats in a speech.

 

For years, the street thugs have been agitating, and for years the elites in the Democrat Party have egged them on, giving the violence their imprimatur, legitimacy and sanction. All the while, they blamed the right for unrelated violence. While there was no connection between what a Norway mass-murdering madman did and we what said, what we recommended for countering jihad terrorism and the brutal sharia, the left blew up and blood-libeled us almost to the point of extinction. When it came out in court that this Norwegian madman was inspired to violence by al Qaeda and Hamas, that was never widely reported. The left always blames us for violence, no matter how non-existent the ties. Even when I was the target of an assassination plot in Garland, Texas, for example, the left blamed me because I would not adhere to the blasphemy laws under the sharia.

 

Bernie Sanders fundraised by blaming Sarah Palin and conservatives in general for the 2011 shooting of Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-AZ). The Daily Caller reported that “there was never any actual evidence presented that Jared Loughner, a diagnosed schizophrenic who pleaded guilty to the shooting, was a Palin fan, a Tea Party supporter, or that he had ever seen Palin’s ‘crosshairs’ map” that was widely blamed for the shooting. In fact, according to the Caller, “one friend tweeted that ‘he was left wing, quite liberal.’”

 

Last week’s shooter in Portland was also a Bernie supporter; he ranted against Christians, Jews and Muslims, but the enemedia reported his shooting of two people as an “Islamophobic” “hate crime.”

 

I have been covering leftist and Islamic protests for years, and they are rife with hate and violence that never get reported in the mainstream media. My colleague, Pamela Hall, has been indefatigable in covering the rise of the left-wing totalitarians. Followers of my website, the Geller Report, know her work and what it proves: a systematic, organized movement to overthrow American freedoms and install an enemy regime.

 

At every pro-America, pro-Trump, anti-sharia, counter terrorism protest, leftists show up full of bloodlust and primed for battle. These primitives agitate, incite and attack our people whenever we peacefully assemble. And their stooges in the media, like clockwork, then report what happened as follows: “Violence breaks out at far-right rally” “Far-right” the media’s term for anyone who doesn’t submit to these goose-stepping, jackbooted thugs. At my rally against CUNY’s invitation to terror-inciter Linda Sarsour to give its commencement address, New York City Mayor “Red Bill” de Blasio directed the NYPD to put the violent leftists not three feet from our people. It was not pretty.

 

Conservative and pro-Israel speakers are attacked and silenced on the rare occasions they are even invited to speak. Trump supporters have been beaten at rallies and demos in support of the President. From Berkeley to Brooklyn, college campuses have become nothing short of war zones.

 

As the Daily Wire noted: “In recent years, under the tender tutelage of the Obama Department of Justice, mass violent action by leftists has become commonplace across the country, from the Occupy Wall Street movement to Black Lives Matter-inspired mob violence in Ferguson and Baltimore, from campus chaos at California State University of Los Angeles to this sort of violence at Trump rallies.”

 

This is not static. This situation on the ground is fluid. Do the leftists think freedom-lovers will continue to stand down? Does the left want war? They are going to get it. Because we know where this road leads. We saw this same kind of violent thuggery in the 1930s in Germany. And we have seen what happens when good people do nothing.

 

As for the “good people” in the Democrat Party, where are they? Where are the mass protests where Democrats proclaim, “Not My Party!” Why aren’t we seeing that the way we are seeing “Not My President!”

 

If you are a Democrat Party member, you are part of the problem.

Europeans face the same kind of propaganda of blaming the exposers of reality as Conservatives face in America from the Left on multiple issues, including gun control. After Leftist hater James Hodgkinson (See Also HERE) went to murder Republican members of Congress because he hated Trump, the Dem gun control rhetoric was amped up almost as viciously as the Hodgkinson shooter himself.

Fjordman (Peder Jensen) is the Counterjihad writer that European Multiculturalists love to hate. They would rather blame Fjordman (and other Counterjihad writers daring to risk EU hate-speech laws) for acts of Islamic terrorism rather than the Muslims devoted to the purist Islam of Muhammad and the revered writings of the Quran, Hadith and Sunnah.

 

Below is a Fjordman essay I found on the Internet European publication Snaphanen that takes a stark look at Muslim immigration to Europe and the troubles that immigration is causing.

 

JRH 6/15/17

****************

The EU, Islam and Radicalization

 

By Fjordman

June 13, 2017 [SENESTE OPDATERING – Danish for LATEST UPDATE] 1806 KL [I’m guessing Danish for “o’clock” – HERE & HERE]

Snaphanen

 

[Blog Editor: I must admit ignorance of European publications. Snaphanen has a “.dk” indicating Denmark but the news seems to focus on Sweden. And Fjordman is Norwegian. It’s all Nordic to me.]

 

One of the frustrating things about trying to warn against a gradually-developing threat is that many people choose to ignore the warnings until it is almost too late. Perhaps this is human nature. We prefer to ignore unpleasant realities as much as possible, and don’t believe a problem is real until we can see it with our own eyes. Some people will not believe it even then.

 

If seeing is believe, the time has now come to believe. The problems of mass migration and radical Islam have been developing for a long time. However, they have intensified recently and keep on escalating. 2015 may in hindsight be remembered as the year when illegal mass immigration was brought to the forefront of mass media attention. Migrants have been arriving illegally to the Western world for many years. Yet the flow of illegal migrants arriving in boats in the Mediterranean has drastically increased in 2015 compared to 2013 or 2014.

 

After some high-profile incidents in which migrants have drowned,[1] several European countries sent ships to pick up illegal immigrants in the Mediterranean and bring them to Europe. Critics argue that this is not a long-term solution. This sends out a signal to illegal immigrants and people smugglers that Europe is open to them. That will encourage even more of them to come. There is no reason to assume that the pressure of illegal immigration from the south will stop in the year 2016, 2017 or 2030. On the contrary, the ongoing population explosion in Africa and parts of the Middle East indicates that mass migration could further increase in scale in the coming years. The turmoil caused by militant Islam also continues.

 

Sometimes, bringing attention to a problem may trigger accusations that you caused the problem to exist in the first place. Jan Opsal is a Professor of Science of religion at the School of Mission and Theology (MHS) in Stavanger, Norway. He works with issues related to Christian-Muslim relations. In July 2015, Professor Opsal accused me personally of contributing to the rise of radical and militant Islam by spreading alleged “conspiracy theories” about Islam.[2] According to him, “Those who warn against Islam, through constant assertions that are not factual, will thereby contribute to increased radicalization of Islam.” Mr. Opsal further suggested that maybe one tenth of a percentage point of Muslims support the Islamic State (IS or ISIS).

 

With all due respect to the professor, the percentage of Muslims sympathizing with the militant Muslims of ISIS is a lot bigger than what he suggests. It could be 50 times as great, or even 100 to 200 times. Muslims supporting jihadists from groups such as ISIS or al-Qaida can now be found in cities and towns across the Western world. This is not a “conspiracy theory.” It is a fact. Just listen to the increasingly worried warnings of professional security services.

 

Furthermore, if you listen to the jihadists themselves, they legitimize their actions by referring to the Koran and other authoritative Islamic texts. Suggesting that critics of Islam helped cause the slave markets and massacres of ISIS is not merely wrong, it is absurd. This is like suggesting that critics of Communism caused the Gulag, or that critics of Nazism caused Auschwitz.

 

Next to Islamic theology, the primary cause of radicalization in Europe today is arguably the immigration policies promoted by Western political elites. EU governments have a duty to help the flood of migrants arriving in Europe and not cave in to “populist” demands to turn them back, European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker says.[3] In other words, EU leaders think native Europeans have a “duty” to settle large numbers of illegal immigrants from dysfunctional African and Muslim societies permanently in their nations. “Ministers, unlike citizens, have an obligation to act. We made proposals that went far, while still being modest given the scale of the problem,” Juncker said, referring to the proposals from the Commission, the executive arm or unelected “government” of the 28-nation EU. “We proposed a mandatory system to redistribute asylum seekers and people who need international protection, but the member states did not follow us,” he said. At a July 20, 2015 meeting in Brussels, EU justice and home affairs ministers agreed to relocate more than 32,250 Syrians, Eritreans, Iraqis and Somalis who had landed in Greece and Italy. The ministers also agreed to take in some 22,500 Syrian refugees currently living in camps outside the EU. Juncker said the EU would resume efforts to reach a higher target. “If we don’t get there on a voluntary basis, we will have to reconsider the Commission’s proposals,” the former Prime Minister of Luxembourg said. Mandatory distribution of asylum seekers among member states is still being seriously considered.

 

Illegal immigrants currently arrive on a daily basis, at a pace of hundreds of thousands annually. They use every trick imaginable to get into Europe, perceived as the promised land of milk and honey. Migrants hide in containers, storm trucks, occupy railway stations or use inflatable rubber dinghies. Some even try to swim to European-controlled territories,[4] or get smuggled in suitcases.[5] Meanwhile, there is rising opposition among ordinary Europeans to having their local communities forcibly changed by this influx.

 

It is interesting to note that some of the strongest opposition to mass immigration can be found in societies that have first-hand experience with Communist rule: Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Eastern Germany and Baltic nations. Nationalists protested in Riga, Latvia’s capital, against their country’s taking in a planned 250 migrants under an EU resettlement scheme. “I don’t feel that EU institutions are listening to our concerns about taking in refugees from very different cultures,” said MP Raivis Dzintars.[6] Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has repeatedly sounded the alarm. He warns that mass immigration constitutes a threat to European civilization.

 

EUSSR It has long been a joke to compare the European Union to the Soviet Union, an EUSSR. Some people wonder whether this is really a joke. The Russian intellectual and former Soviet dissident Vladimir Bukovksy believes the EU has certain structural similarities to the dictatorial Soviet Union.[7] The unelected and powerful European Commission resembles the Soviet Politburo, ruling hundreds of millions of people without their consent. While partly true, it should be mentioned that not even Communist states such as the Soviet Union championed mass immigration of Muslims and Africans on the scale which the EU is doing today. The USA does, however. The EU seems to have adopted harmful traits from both Cold War superpowers: The anti-democratic bureaucratic structure of the Soviet Union, and the mass immigration “diversity” policies of the USA.

 

It has become increasingly apparent that the EU in its present form is actively harmful to the long-term interests of native Europeans. The organization provides weak leadership. When it attempts any leadership at all, it usually leads Europe in the wrong direction. The handling of illegal immigration and radical Islam has been very poor, and dominated by Utopian ideas without basis in reality. Its handling of the euro crisis in Greece has not been impressive, either. With its increasingly authoritarian centralization, the EU robs national parliaments of their power and undermines its own popular legitimacy. The repeated attempts to force illegal immigrants on all of its member states trigger outright hostility. Its immigration policies contribute to the rising polarization of European societies.

Perhaps the EU will be remembered as the alleged “peace project” that once again plunged Europe into conflict.

What is collusion? Dictionary.com:

 

1. A secret agreement, especially for fraudulent or treacherous purposes; conspiracy: Some of his employees were in collusion to rob him.

 

2. Law. A secret understanding between two or more persons to gain something illegally, to defraud another of his or her rights, or to appear as adversaries through in agreement: collusion of husband and wife to obtain a divorce.   

 

Testimony after testimony from Intelligence heads and even disgraced Clinton-liar former Director James Comey have said there has been NO collusion between then candidate Donald Trump and Russia to steal the election from proven Crooked Hillary. The Dems have closed their ears so badly to the truth, they keep on propagandize American voters there is an act collusion by President Trump, the Dems just can’t prove it yet.

 

The more provable collusion is between former AG Loretta Lynch telling former FBI Director not to say Crooked Hillary was under investigation. That Lynch directive included using the words “a matter” rather than investigation and a steely stare against Comey when showing the former AG a yet undisclosed document suggesting Crooked Hillary wrong-doing.

 

It is the American Left that gets away with the criminality of collusion in the USA!

 

David Daleiden’s Center for Medical Progress (CMP) that released a series of undercover videos demonstrating that Planned Parenthood was killing live-birth babies to deliver the murdered babies intact for research purposes and monetary profit to private research labs.

 

AND YET Planned Parenthood nor the murderous perpetrators have been prosecuted for the crimes. BUT CMP, David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt are being criminally persecuted – err I mean prosecuted - for exposing Planned Parenthood crimes.

 

The collusion between Leftist prosecutors and Planned Parenthood has to be a crime, right? Who prosecutes the prosecutors?

 

EVEN WORSE!

 

Now there is ample evidence between a judge adjudicating the trial against Daleiden and Merritt by placing a gag order on showing past and future CMP videos exposing Planned Parenthood criminality! You see, U.S. District Judge William Orrick has been on the Board of Directors of a clinic housing Planned Parenthood operations. Friends this is MORE LEFTIST COLLUSION protecting a Leftist agenda to perpetuate Obama’s agenda to “fundamentally transform America”.

Judge who censored undercover Planned Parenthood videos was on pro-abortion group’s board

 

By Claire Chretien

June 9, 2017

Life Site News

 

U.S. District Judge William Orrick

 

CALIFORNIA, June 9, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) is seeking to disqualify the judge who censored its undercover footage of an abortion conference because of his ties to a pro-Planned Parenthood organization that lets the abortion company run a clinic on its premises.

 

When David Daleiden began releasing his now-famous exposé on the abortion industry's participation in the baby body parts trade, the National Abortion Federation (NAF) took him to court. Daleiden had undercover recordings of its abortion trade show. NAF succeeded in getting U.S. District Judge William Orrick to issue a gag order preventing the release of this footage.

 

Last month, Daleiden's attorneys released the footage. Some of the extended footage had already been leaked by Got News, but the video released by the CMP attorneys was more condensed and contained a compilation of the most shocking statements from abortionists at the conference.

 

Orrick then ordered Daleiden and his attorneys, Steve Cooley and Brentford J. Ferreira, to appear in court on June 14. They may face contempt of court charges for having released the video.

 

But CMP is arguing that Orrick should be disqualified from the case because he served on the board of an organization that houses a Planned Parenthood clinic. CMP's motion to remove Orrick from the case says that Orrick's affiliation with this organization shows "bias in favor of the plaintiff and prejudice against the defendants."

 

The organization is Good Samaritan Family Resource Center (GSFRC) in San Francisco. It describes its relationship with Planned Parenthood as a "key partnership." Orrick is a former GSFRC board member. He was GSRFC's secretary of the board in 2001 "when GSFRC entered 'key partnership' with PPSP [Planned Parenthood]," the motion states.

 

"The video recordings that are the subject of this case include recordings of PPSP/PPNC staff members," it says.

 

"At no time did Judge Orrick disclose to Defendants that he sat on the board of an organization that had as a 'key partner' an organization Defendants alleged, both in public statements and as part of their defense, was involved in violations of state and federal law," CMP's motion continues. "Judge Orrick did not disclose his close and long-standing relationship with an organization that houses a facility and hosts Planned Parenthood staff, whom NAF claims are in physical danger from 'anti-abortion extremists' incited by Defendants."

 

The motion goes on to detail Orrick's wife's support of abortion on Facebook. Mrs. Orrick "liked" a National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) Facebook post that criticized CMP as "a sham organization run by extremists."

 

In 2015, "Mrs. Orrick 'pinkified' her Facebook page and added 'I stand with Planned Parenthood' as a Facebook profile picture overlay."

 

CMP's attorneys explained:

 

Planned Parenthood urged its supporters to add these elements to their Facebook pages as part of a campaign orchestrated specifically in response to the release of videos by Mr. Daleiden and CMP. 'Pinkifying' showed one’s support for Planned Parenthood and one ’s belief that the videos were fraudulent.

 

Another cause for CMP's concern is Mrs. Orrick "liked a Facebook Post by 'Keep America Pro-Choice' that applauded Mr. Daleiden being indicted in Texas." It, and the "like" of the NARAL post, "were juxtaposed with a profile photo featuring Judge Orrick and Mrs. Orrick."

 

As The Federalist's Mollie Hemingway uncovered at the time Orrick issued the initial gag order on the video, he is a major financial backer of pro-abortion former President Obama.

 

"He raised at least $200,000 for Obama and donated $30,800 to committees supporting him, according to Public Citizen," she reported.

 

He also donated more than $5,000 to GSFRC.

It has always been my opinion that a Two-State Solution would NEVER be a harbinger for peace between Israel and the Arabs that call themselves Palestinians. A Palestinian State would merely be a launching ground for Islamic terrorist attacks against Israel. The result would be Israeli military incursions to punish an independent Palestine for allowing the terrorist launching pads. Or an independent Palestine might have the hutzpah claim the terrorism is military incursions for whatever fake/false reason given.

 

The only raison d'être for a Palestinian State existence would be to end Israel’s existence and to kill Jews. Because of Muslim animus against Israel, a One-State Solution is the best solution.

 

The best One-State Solution is to find a way to move Jew-hating Muslims out of any area that is a part of ancient Jewish heritage.

 

Dr. Martin Sherman has written a two-part essay touching on the logistics and feasibility of an ethical fashion to aid Jew-hating Muslims to emigrate to another Arab-Muslim nation. I found out about Dr. Sherman’s from the Facebook Group “No Palestinian State!” (If you are a Pro-Israel kind of person you should go there and request to be a member and add to the discussion.)

INTO THE FRAY: The Humanitarian Paradigm - Answering FAQs (Part 2)

 

Sequel to the dispelling of doubts regarding the feasibility - and morality - of largescale, financially incentivized emigration as the only non-kinetic approach for resolution of the Israel-Palestinian impasse.

 

By Dr. Martin Sherman

June 9, 2017 06:48

Israel National News – Arutz Sheva 7

 

The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty. -attributed to Winston Churchill

 

Readers will recall that last week I began a two part response to FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) relating to the practical feasibility/moral acceptability of my proposed Humanitarian Paradigm (HP), which prescribes, among other measures, large-scale financially incentivized emigration of the Palestinian-Arabs, living across the pre-1967 lines as the only route to attain long-term survivability for Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people.

 

To recap briefly

 

In last week’s column, I addressed the question of the overall cost of the funded emigration project, and showed that, given the political will to implement it, it would be eminently affordable – even if Israel had to shoulder the burden alone. If other industrial nations could be induced to participate, the total cost would be an imperceptible percentage of their GDP.

 

I then went on to demonstrate that there is ample evidence indicating a wide-spread desire in large sections of the Palestinian-Arab population to emigrate permanently in search of more secure and prosperous live elsewhere. This point was underscored by a recent Haaretz article, describing how thousands of Gazans had fled their home to Greece, undertaking perilous risk to extricate themselves from the harrowing hardships imposed on them by the ill-conceived endeavor to foist statehood on the Palestinian-Arabs. Significantly, according to the Haaretz report, none of them blamed Israel for their plight—but rather the ruling Hamas-regime, which, it will be recalled, was elected by popular vote to replace the rival Fatah faction, ousted because of its corruption and poor governance.

 

Finally, I dealt with the question of the prospective host nations, pointing out that the funded Palestinian-Arab émigrés would not arrive as an uncontrolled deluge of destitute humanity, but as an orderly regulated stream of relatively affluent immigrants spread over about a decade-and-a-half, whose absorption would entail significant capital inflows for the host nation’s economy. Moreover, given the fact that, globally, migrants total almost a quarter billion, Palestinian-Arab migration of several hundred thousand a year would comprise a small fraction of one percent of the overall number—hardly an inconceivable prospect.

 

Following this short summary of previously addressed FAQs, we can now move on to tackle several additional ones.

FAQ 4: Won’t fear of fratricide deter recipients?

 

One of the most commonly raised reservations as to the practical applicability of the HP is that potential recipients of the relocation/rehabilitation grants would be deterred from accepting them because of threats of retribution from their kin-folk who allegedly would view such action as perfidious betrayal of the Palestinian-Arabs’ national aspirations.

 

In contending with this question, it is necessary to distinguish between two possible scenarios, in which such internecine intimidation will be either a phenomenon whose scope is (a) limited; or (b) wide-spread and pervasive.

 

Clearly, if the former is true, it is unlikely to have any significant inhibiting impact on the conduct of prospective recipients of the relocation/rehabilitation grants.

 

If, however, the assumption is that the latter is the case, several points need to be made:


- If this objection to the HP is to have any credence, its proponents must present evidence (as opposed to unproven supposition) that potential violent opponents of the HP program have the ability not only to inflict harm on prospective recipients (as opposed to issuing empty threats), but that they can sustain such ability over time.

 

- In this regard, it should be kept in mind that implementation of the HP entails the disarming, dismantling and disbanding —if need be, coercively—of the ruling Palestinian regime, and reinstating Israeli governance over all territory under Palestinian-Arab control.


Inhibiting internecine intimidation

 

The HP is hardly unique with regard to this latter point. All other proffered policy alternatives for the failed, foolhardy two-state formula entail such measures—either by explicit stipulation, or implicit inference—since preserving the current Palestinian regime intact would clearly preclude their implementation. Indeed, they are even endorsed by some pundits who do not discount the eventual emergence of a Palestinian state, such as Middle East Forum president, Daniel Pipes.

 

Clearly, the dispersal of the central Palestinian governing body, together with the defanging of its armed organs and the deployment of Israeli forces in their stead, will greatly curtail (although not entirely eliminate) the scope for internecine intimidation and the capacity to dissuade potential recipients of the relocation/rehabilitation grants from availing themselves of the funds.

 

In addition, Israel should task its own formidable military and intelligence services to protect prospective recipients of these grants by identifying, intervening and thwarting attempts to intimidate those seeking to enhance their lives by extricating themselves from the control of the disastrously dysfunctional regime under which they live.

 

Moreover, the international community should be called upon to cooperate with and participate in this principled endeavor to prevent fratricidal elements within Palestinian society from depriving their brethren of the opportunity of better, safer lives. After all, violence against Palestinian-Arabs, who choose to reside within any given host nation, would comprise an intolerable violation of that country’s national sovereignty.

 

Appalling indictment of “Palestinian” society?

 

Of course invoking the specter of large-scale fratricide as an impediment to the acceptance of the HP is an appalling indictment of Palestinian-Arab society.

 

After all, the inescapable implication of such an objection to the HP’s practical applicability is that its acceptance by otherwise willing recipients, wishing to avail themselves of opportunity to seek security and prosperity elsewhere, can only be impeded by violent extortion of their kin-folk.

 

Accordingly, if the concern over large-scale fratricide is serious, it is in fact, at once, both the strongest argument in favor of the HP and against the establishment of a Palestinian state. After all, two unavoidable conclusions necessarily flow from it: (a) any predicted reluctance to accept the relocation/rehabilitating grants would not be a reflection of the free will of Palestinian-Arabs, but rather a coerced outcome that came about despite the fact that it is not; (b) Similarly, the endeavor for a Palestinian state is not one that manifests any authentic desire of the “Palestinian people” but rather one imposed on them, despite the fact that it does not.

 

As a result, any Palestinian-Arab state established under the pervasive threat of lethal retribution against any dissenter will not be an expression of genuine national aspirations but of extortion and coercion of large segments of Palestinian-Arab society, who would otherwise opt for an alternative outcome.

 

In summation then, if the fear of fratricide can be shown to be a tangible threat, it should not be considered a reason to abandon the HP formula. Quite the opposite! It should be considered an unacceptable phenomenon to be resolutely suppressed –by both Israel and the international community—in order to permit the Palestinian-Arab public the freedom of choice to determine their future.

 

FAQ 5: Would funded emigration not be considered unethical “ethnic cleansing”?

I have addressed the question of the moral merits of the HP extensively elsewhere (see “Palestine”: Who Has Moral High Ground?), where I demonstrate that the HP blueprint will be the most humane of all options if it succeeds, and the least inhumane if it does not.

 

I shall therefore refrain from repeating much of the arguments presented previously and focus on one crucial issue: The comparative moral merits of the widely endorsed two-state paradigm (TSS) and those of my proposed Humanitarian Paradigm (HP).

 

Since there is very little doubt (or dispute) as to the domestic nature of any prospective Palestinian state, anyone seeking to disqualify the HP because of its alleged moral shortcomings must be forced to contend with the following question: Who has the moral high-ground?

 

(a) The TSS-proponents, who advocate establishing (yet another) homophobic, misogynistic Muslim-majority tyranny, whose hallmarks would be: gender discrimination, gay persecution, religious intolerance, and political oppression of dissidents? ; or

 

(b) The HP-proponents who advocate providing non-belligerent Palestinian individuals with the opportunity of building a better life for themselves elsewhere, out of harm’s way, free from the recurring cycles of death, destruction and destitution, brought down on them by the cruel, corrupt cliques that have led them astray for decades.

 

Furthermore, TSS advocates should be compelled to clarify why they consider it morally acceptable to offer financial inducements to Jews in Judea-Samaria to evacuate their homes to facilitate the establishment of said homophobic, misogynistic tyranny, which, almost certainly, will become a bastion for Islamist terror; yet they consider it morally reprehensible to offer financial inducements to Arabs in Judea-Samaria to evacuate their homes to prevent the establishment of such an entity?

 

FAQ 6: What about those who remain?

 

This is, of course, a serious question and a detailed response would depend on, among other things, the size of the residual Palestinian-Arab population who refuse any material compensation as an inducement to emigrate.

 

The acuteness of the problem would undoubtedly be a function of its scale. Clearly, the smaller this residual population, the less pressing the need will be to deal with it. For example it seems plausible that if, say, only a hundred thousand Palestinians remain, consideration may well be given to the possibility of offering them Israeli citizenship – subject to stringent security vetting and sworn acceptance of Jewish sovereignty as the sole legitimate source of authority in the land – without endangering the Jewish character of the country.

 

However, it should be remembered that, unlike the two-state approach which advocates perilous concessions, and the one-state prescription which calls for incorporating the Palestinian-Arabs resident across the pre-1967 lines into Israel’s permanent population, the HP does not involve any cataclysmic irreversible measures.

 

At the heart of the HP program is a comprehensive system of material inducements to foster Palestinian emigration, which includes generous incentives for leaving and harsh disincentives for staying. As detailed elsewhere, such incentives would entail substantial monetary grants, up to 100 years GDP per capita per family in Palestinian terms; while the latter entail phased withdrawal of services (including provision of water, electricity, fuel, port facilities and so on) that Israel currently provides to the Palestinian-Arabs across the pre-1967 lines.

 

Accordingly, should it be found that the initial proposed inducements are ineffective, the former can be made more enticing, and/or the latter more daunting, until the proffered package is acceptable.

 

Seen in this context, it is difficult to envisage that many non-belligerent Palestinian-Arabs would prefer to endure the rigors of discontinued provision of services rather than avail themselves of the generous relocation/rehabilitation funds—especially given the dispersal of the Palestinian regime as an alternative source of such services.

 

FAQ 7 What if the same kind of offer were made to induce Jewish emigration?

 

In addressing this question several points should be borne in mind:

 

The offer would clearly not be made by an Israeli government. After all, the HP is intended as a measure to: (a) Ensure – not undermine – the survival of Israel as the nation-state of the Jews, and (b) Relieve the genuine humanitarian predicament of the Palestinian-Arabs—precipitated by the dysfunctional administration they have been subjected to since the 1993 Oslo process—not Jewish disgruntlement with the imperfect functioning of the Israeli government.

 

Of course, it would be impossible to prevent Arab elements from offering Jews financial inducement to emigrate from Israel, but in this regard it should be recalled that: (a) As a sovereign nation Israel can control the financial flows into the country and impede money from hostile sources reaching Israeli citizens, considerably complicating the transfer and receipt of funds. (b) Arab governments have been singularly reticent in providing large sums to advance the “Palestinian cause” and there is little chance (or evidence) that they would advance the hundreds of billions required to finance large scale Jewish emigration; (c) The overwhelming majority of Israelis enjoy living standards of an advanced post-industrial nation with a GDP per capita around 20 times higher than that in the Palestinian-administered territories; (d) Accordingly, it would be commensurately more difficult to tempt them to leave. Indeed, sums offered would have to be considerably higher to create a comparable incentive, running into millions rather than hundreds of thousands per family. (e) Moreover, a slew of recent polls show the large majority of Israelis are satisfied with their lives – thus the prospect of material incentives to induce large-scale emigration seems remote.

Urgent Zionist imperative.

 

The HP is the only Zionist-compliant policy prescription that can save Israel from the perilous dangers of the two-state formula and the specter of Lebanonization/Balkanization inherent in other proffered alternatives. Embarking on its implementation is a Zionist imperative that is both urgent and feasible.

Esam Omeish at Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center 9-18-15

 

I realize that the government situation in Libya is not exactly stable, yet I find it very amusing that a Libyan parliamentary procedure has placed Muslim Brotherhood linked Esam Omeish - who resides in America - on a terrorist watch list. Omeish has gone ballistic when a foreign government has exposed his trojan nature in the USA.

 

Here is an Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) article on the issue.

 

JRH 6/12/17

**************

Libyan Security Committee Calls U.S. Muslim Leader a Terrorist

 

By IPT News

June 12, 2017

Investigative Project on Terrorism

A prominent Muslim American political activist is included on a list of 75 terrorists issued by a Libyan parliamentary committee.

 

Esam Omeish is a former president of the Muslim American Society and remains a prominent figure at the Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Va. He is among 75 people the Libyan House of Representatives' Defense and National Security Committee labeled Friday as enemies.

 

Libya's government remains fragmented, with the House of Representatives based in a city called Tobruk. It is considered closely aligned with Egypt.

 

Omeish is the 29th name listed on the terror list and is described as an "international member of the Muslim Brotherhood." Another American, Aly Abuzaakouk, appears just after Omeish's, also identified as an international Muslim Brotherhood member.

 

Omeish blasted the move in a statement on his Facebook page, saying "my name had unjustly and falsely been placed on a so called list of supporters of terrorism." He protested Saturday to Virginia U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine, the 2016 Democratic vice presidential nominee, and plans to try meeting more members of Congress today.

 

Omeish wants the committee's leader "legally prosecuted for fraud, slander and defamation to obtain a judgement inhibiting their ability to travel to America..." He also wants penalties for committee members who approved the list, accusing them of "randomly charging American citizens who have no offense or crime, or involvement with any of the forms of terrorism, and who are major in the American landscape in the fight against terrorism and working with all security and legal agencies to preserve the country's security and the safety of the society and communities with transparency and integrity which everyone near and far knows."

 

Omeish formerly served as president of the Muslim American Society (MAS), which insiders have acknowledged is the Muslim Brotherhood's overt arm in the United States. In a December Facebook comment, Omeish wrote that Muslims "have not known of the people of Islam ... those more just in understanding, wider in approach and closer in application than the Muslim Brotherhood. We have not known of humane brotherliness and its people, (and we are affiliated with all men whom Allah has created a propensity for love, mercy, an upright disposition, good morals and honorable character) better in ethics, of gentler parts, deeper in adherence to duty, nobler in morals among all their sons, and every one of their actions than the Muslim Brotherhood."

 

Last year, he advocated that the U.S. support for a group known variably as the "Revolutionary Shura Council," or the "Mujahideen Shura of Derna," despite ties between its officials and al-Qaida. Egypt's air force bombed the group last month in retaliation for terror attacks against Coptic Christians in April.

 

Abuzaakouk also has deep Muslim Brotherhood connections. He has served as executive director of the American Muslim Council (AMC), and publications director for the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT). He became foreign minister of the Muslim Brotherhood-dominated Government of National Salvation based in Tripoli after dictator Muammar Gaddafi fell. That group opposes the internationally recognized government in Tobruk.

 

The AMC was founded in part by Mahmoud Abu Saud, who helped Hassan al-Banna create the Brotherhood in Egypt, the Washington Post reported in 2004. FBI officials have long suspected that the IIIT housed leading Brotherhood officials in the United States.

 

Despite his overt support for "the jihad way" and for the Brotherhood, Omeish has been close to Kaine for at least a decade. When Kaine was Virginia's governor in 2007, Omeish was forced to resign from a state immigration panel after Investigative Project on Terrorism video showed him praising Palestinians during a 2000 rally for knowing that "the jihad way is the way to liberate your land."

 

At a separate event two months earlier, Omeish similarly praised Palestinians "for their bravery, for their giving up their lives for the sake of Allah and for the sake of Al-Aqsa [Jerusalem]. They have spearheaded the effort to bring victory upon the believers in [Palestine]."

 

It was during a 2010 fundraiser for Omeish's state assembly campaign that U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison – now the Democratic National Committee's vice chair – complained that Israel unduly influence U.S. policy in the Middle East. "A region of 350 million all turns on a country of 7 million," Ellison said. "Does that make sense?"

 

Ellison added: "We can't allow another country to treat us like we're their ATM. Right? And so we ought to stand up as Americans. Now some of us have affinity for other places around the globe. Some of us are new Americans and adopted America as our home. But whether you're born here or whether you accepted America as your own voluntarily, this is our home. Right? All of our home equally, and we can't allow it to be disrespected because some, by a country that we're paying money to."

 

In this case, Kaine serves on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee's subcommittee for North Africa.

 

It is unclear what impact the Libyan House committee's terror list will have, especially among U.S. policy makers. There's no public information indicating Omeish was directly involved in any terror support. But he has openly advocated for "the jihad way" and lauds the Brotherhood, a movement which articulated a goal of creating a global Islamic state and serves as an inspiration for Sunni jihadist groups including al-Qaida, Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Ja'amat Islamiya.

 

"The common link here is the extremist Muslim Brotherhood – all of these organizations are descendants of the membership and ideology of the Muslim Brothers," former National Security and Counter-terrorism Coordinator Richard Clarke testified in 2004 before a U.S. Senate committee.

 

There are twin bills pending in Congress that would designate the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group. The United Arab Emirates has already done so.

When Rapugees Attack Americans

5-yr old victim of Muslim Boy Refugee rapists

 

In early June 2016 three immigrant Muslim boys aged 14, 10 and 7 brutally raped a then 5-year old girl in an apartment complex laundry room. Here is a somewhat abbreviated yet detailed description of the disgusting evidence of how Islamic Supremacist thinking played out for an Idaho child and her parents:

 

June 2, 2016, at Fawnbrook Apartments, was witnessed by Jolene Payne, an 89-year-old retired nurse who told WND she saw a 14-year-old boy from Sudan filming the assault in progress inside the laundry room. Two other boys, ages 7 and 10 from Iraq, were inside the room with the little girl, all three with their clothes off, while the older boy shot video.

 

I have constantly been behind the curve in finding out details because the Mainstream Media (MSM) has been complicit with the Leftist judicial system in this Idaho County protecting these Muslim boys from justice in the name of Multiculturalism. A Leftist Multiculturalism that wants to perpetuate the lie that is the duty of Americans to welcome anti-American Islamic values into our culture.

 

Here are three posts I posted largely due to the efforts of Ann Corcoran of the Refugee Resettlement Watch:

 

Even Muslim Kids are Rape Jihadists 11/23/16

 

Idaho: Pretrial hearing tomorrow in refugee sexual assault case 3/26/17

 

Muslim Boy Rapists get Wrist Slap in Idaho? 4/7/17

 

These juvenile delinquent brutal Muslim rapists may have received some kind of probation but that is a bit of guess work. WHY?

 

The presiding Judge Thomas Boressen put a gag order on all attending the court proceedings.

 

I can imagine hearing a Leftist Multiculturalist defending the Judge’s gag order because the Muslim rapist brats are children themselves. Well sure, seal the brats’ identity. But do you honestly believe these Muslims kids will be taught right from wrong according to American law above what Islam teaches is just fine and dandy to do to non-Muslims?

 

The court has a duty to both protect the good citizens of Idaho and to let Americans know these are children of Muslim immigrants or refugees. The reason is American voters need to be able understand the dangers of harboring massive Muslim refugees unwilling to renounce Islamic Supremacism. American Laws for all people residing in America must be administered regardless of culture or religion.

 

Americans must have the right at the voting both to throw the bums out (viz., Leftist Multiculturalist politicians) that desire to infest our nation with people not willing to comply with American law.

 

I don’t know how good it will do, but it made me feel good to sign an anti-gag order petition because Americans need to know why Muslim refugees get a pass from American justice.

 

Here is Ann Corcoran’s update on the brutalization of then 5-year old Jayla Peterson and the resulting gag order.

Idaho refugee sexual assault case: boys get probation

 

By Ann Corcoran

June 7, 2017

Refugee Resettlement Watch

 

And, adding insult to injury, the judge in the case placed an unlawful gag order on everyone in the court room, telling them they could not discuss what happened during the five hours when the boys were portrayed as victims and the little girl was forgotten. Obviously the judge’s order was ignored, read on..

 

Here is some of what happened, but I do want you to read the whole article by Leo Hohmann:

 

A judge sentenced three Muslim refugee boys in the sexual assault of a 5-year-old girl in Idaho, but nobody knows the length or terms of the sentence because the judge has barred everyone in the courtroom, including the victim’s own parents, from speaking about the case.

 

Judge Boressen was not the first member of the Idaho legal system to attempt to hide this case from the media because it doesn’t fit the Left’s narrative about refugees. Earlier on, Wendy Olson, then US Attorney for Idaho, created a firestorm of controversy by attempting to silence those who wanted to see justice in the Fawnbrooks Apt. alleged assault. See our report: https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2016/06/28/twin-falls-first-amendment-experts-responses-to-idaho-us-attorney-were-swift-and-severe/ Elections have consequences and Olson is now gone from her federal government post.

 

The three boys — two from Iraq ages 7 and 10, and one from Sudan aged 14 — pleaded guilty in juvenile court in April to multiple counts of sex crimes in an incident that occurred last June in Twin Falls. The assault occurred at Fawnbrook Apartments, when 5-year-old Jayla, who is developmentally disabled, was lured into a laundry room, stripped of her clothing and sexually assaulted while the oldest boy filmed the entire incident.

 

Now, following a sentencing hearing Monday at the Snake River Juvenile Detention Center in Twin Falls, Judge Thomas Borreson of Idaho’s 5th Judicial District issued a gag order preventing everyone in the courtroom from saying anything about the sentence received by the boys.

 

Borreson did allow the family to say they were unhappy with the sentencing, but threatened to jail them for contempt of court if they say why they are unhappy.

 

[.]

 

Mathew Staver, chairman and co-founder of the nonprofit legal assistance agency Liberty Counsel, told WND that Judge Borreson was completely out of line in issuing a gag order after the fact in a criminal case.

 

Blaming the female victim in a sexual assault case! In 21st century America!

 

Hohmann continues.

 

In an op-ed for WND, anti-Shariah activist Pamela Geller called the judge’s decision “a Travesty of Justice as Idaho Muslim Migrant Rapists Go Unpunished.”

 

Pamela Geller

 

“The travesty of justice in Idaho is now completeinstead of getting justice, the victim’s family has been abused by law enforcement and governing authorities as if they were the criminals – because what happened to their little girl contradicts the politically correct narrative about Muslim migrants,” Geller wrote. “On Monday, the perpetrators were sentenced, and the final injustice was done to this poor girl.”

 

Geller said there were 12 to 15 people in the courtroom for the sentencing hearing and one of them leaked the outcome to her anonymously.

 

“And the more I heard, the more I understood why this judge wanted to keep all the proceedings secret,” she said.

 

“Janice Kroeger, the senior deputy prosecuting attorney, who was supposed to be trying these boys for their crimes, defended the boys and repeatedly attacked Lacy, the victim’s mother. A therapist for the boys was present, as well as a parole officer and a detective. Everything that was said was designed to portray the perpetrators as victims. Throughout the proceedings, they were repeatedly called victims.”

 

[.]

 

She said Idaho officials were willing to sacrifice the wellbeing of a small girl in an effort to suppress negative information about the state’s growing refugee community.

Mark this date on your calendars and see if those boys end up (ten years from now) back in the criminal justice system.

I ran into a John B. Wells video on Youtube entitled “The spiraling rabbit hole of the Seth Rich Murder - With George Webb”. I am convinced that the murder of Seth Rich is a part of a huge Leftist cover-up to impugn President Donald Trump. And by impugning I don’t mean President Trump had anything to do with the Rich murder, but I do mean that Rich exposed the Democratic Party and the Crooked Hillary campaign to voter manipulation and political corruption.

 

And so, the Wells one-hour and twenty-four-minute video with Seth Rich caught my attention. I listened to 37-minutes of the quite fascinating video I didn’t really catch a lot of details on the Seth Rich murder, but I could tell George Webb was leading up to it. I had to quit listening because I moved on to other obligations.

 

The part I did listen to laid the foundation of a Deep State cabal of Clinton string pulling to perpetuate a Leftist agenda for America in the shadows of government operation.

 

Ergo, I highly recommend watching-listening to the Wells video even if you must go back a few times to complete just as I am going to do.
