Michigan takes female genital mutilators to court

On July 19, U.S. District Court Judge Bernard Friedman denied bail for Dr. Jumana Nagarwala, a physician, as the Detroit Free Press reported, “accused of cutting the genitals of two Minnesota girls as part of a religious procedure.”  According to the court, Nagarwala may have subjected as many as 100 girls to the procedure over the last 12 years.

Prosecutors also accuse co-defendant Dr. Fakhruddin Attar of letting Nagarwala use his clinic for the genital mutilation, with his wife Farida Attar “holding the girls’ hands during the procedures.”

Mazen Malik: Oregon state official has terrorist-supporting background

Most Oregonians know Mazen Malik, a senior economist at the Oregon State Legislature, from his occasional appearances touting the alleged tax revenue bonanza that marijuana sales have brought to Oregon. But many likely do not realize that in the 1980s, Mazen Malik was an active supporter of Yasser Arafat’s Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), an anti-Israel organization whose horrific terrorist acts have resulted in the deaths of thousands of innocent people.

It is important to understand that communists worked with radical Islamic organizations just as they do today. This unholy alliance has been described as the Red Green Axis and is discussed in the film, the Enemies Within.

The Truth is a Battle of Perception

“In the Name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit…” 

Blessing myself, with these words and signs in Christian prayer, I began my speech at a Tea Party Rally in Jackson, New Jersey in the summer of 2009. On an interesting note, not knowing whether or not I was Preacher up on that stage, nearly half of the 3,000 or so patriots in that open field, blessed themselves along with me.

I went on in prayer saying, “Dearly Beloved! We are gathered here today to remember the United Sta…tes…Oh Wait! What is this I’m reading? We seem to be having technical difficulties with my teleprompter…excuse me…Ah! Ah!...”

Turns out police find a way to charge those awful kids who mocked the drowning man after all

You can’t watch this and not feel rage and indignation at what you’re seeing and hearing. It’s horrible beyond words:

And it was only natural once people saw the video that they wanted the teens arrested and charged with . . . something. They certainly deserve it. The problem, though, was that it wasn’t clear they actually broke any laws. There’s no law against being a jerk, and there’s also no law requiring you to try to rescue someone when they’re in trouble (except perhaps in Latham, Massachusetts). You’re not even required to call 911. It’s the right thing to do, obviously, but it’s not against the law not to.

Politico Writer’s Beef with Trump: Hess Too Fat to be President. Seriously…

Liberal television host and author Touré Neblett seized on a Politico article published Tuesday. The 2,500-word Politico article focused not on anything policy related, but instead centered entirely around President Donald Trump’s weight.

“Politico says Trumpy is the least athletic president in decades which is a nice & polite way of saying he’s a fat slob like Jabba the Hut,” Neblett tweeted Wednesday.

Yes, you read that right. Of all the issues facing the country right now, Ben Strauss, the author of the piece, elected to weigh in on Trump’s physical fitness to be president. What’s worse, Neblett used the story to basically fat shame the president, which liberals usually oppose.

Muslim Leaders Criticize Israel’s Metal Detectors at the Temple Mount

Last Friday, three Arabs killed two Israeli police officers who were guarding an entrance to Jerusalem’s holy compound, known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary. The police officers were shot with arms that had evidently been smuggled into the compound and stashed there. This latest attack was another in an unending series of terrorist murders of Israelis, but this time the attack took place at Old Jerusalem’s sacred site itself. It also may have been orchestrated by a Hezbollah-run cell, acting on orders from Iran, according to a Debkafile report based on its intelligence and counterterrorism sources. 

“The pro-Iranian terror group has long been suspected of recruiting networks in some Israeli Arab communities,” the Debkafile report stated. “By striking Temple Mount, Iran and Hizballah targeted both Israel and Jordan, which claims religious custodianship of its mosques.”

FOR DEMOCRATS, THERE’S NO FOOL LIKE AN OLD FOOL

Despite the continual drama surrounding President Trump and his administration, it is comforting to know that his political opposition is in total chaos. Since the 2008 presidential election of Barack Obama, Democrats have lost over 1,000 state legislative seats across the country. While Democrats have total control of the Governorship and state legislatures in only five states, today Republicans have the most legislative seats in the history of the party.

With 33 GOP Governors, control of the U.S. House, Senate and White House, the Republican Party dominates the national political scene today. Unfortunately for the President, Democrats still maintain control over the liberal media and the “deep state,” the mammoth and powerful federal bureaucracy. Thus, the President has to endure an unfair, biased and ever expanding investigation by a Special Prosecutor, who should have never been appointed.

Can One Be Good Without God?

Atheists have always resented Christians binding goodness to God although we insist that there is a necessary connection. In fact, atheists adamantly insist that they are as decent, kind, good, and altruistic as Christians are. I don’t believe that for a minute. Some atheists may be fairly good people, but generally, one cannot be good without God!

While anyone may choose to be kind, decent, and gracious, there is no compelling reason for him to choose to do so if there is no God. With God, there is obligation. If there is no God then how one treats others is inconsequential. His mistreatment of the innocent and weak will not be faced in eternity since there is no eternity–according to their perverted view.

But there is a God and eternity is in the future of every person on earth.

Immigrants in Trump’s America Now Deported for Running a Red Light

Just before 7 a.m. on May 11, Jonatan Palacios quietly closed the door to his apartment in Haverford, Pennsylvania, to avoid waking his wife. In the parking lot, he got into his car to drive to the restaurant where he works as the head cook. But as he pulled out of his parking space, Palacios saw two law enforcement officers in his rearview mirror walking toward his car. As they got closer, Palacios, who is an undocumented immigrant, could see the small logo on the upper left side of their chests—and knew they were from immigration. He checked the door handles, and felt a moment of relief when he realized the doors had locked automatically.

The immigration agents knocked on the window and asked him to get out of his car. Palacios froze. After a few seconds, he told the agents through the glass that he needed to make some phone calls. He called his boss to tell him he wouldn’t make it to work, his lawyer, and his wife, an American citizen, who was still asleep in the apartment. She came to the parking lot to ask the agents if they had a warrant to arrest her husband.—More…

Scaramucci vows to ‘create a more positive mojo,’ cut White House staff to stop leaks

U.S. President Donald Trump’s new communications director says he will take “dramatic action,” including cutting staff, if leaks originating from the administration don’t stop.

In his first round of cable TV news interviews since being named to one of the top jobs in Washington, D.C., Friday, Anthony Scaramucci told Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace that he plans to tackle head-on the “high level of unprofessionalism” at the White House.—More…

Ivy League Puffery–Very Fake News: CNN’s Jake Tapper Caught Misstating His Background on

Jake Tapper, a CNN anchor, has been caught misstating his background on live television on Sunday.

During an interview with President Donald J. Trump’s new White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, Tapper inflated his background to make it seem as though he was more in touch with people with working- and middle-class beginnings than he really is. At one point late in the lengthy and testy interview—where Scaramucci even offered to bring CNN some Kleenex to wipe away its tears after what he says will be President Trump’s re-election victory in 2020—Scaramucci was discussing how he stands with the “people I grew up with.”—More…

Canadian Senior: I’m impecunious and in need of financial aid

Most Honourable Prime Minister and Premiers,

I am 81 years young, retired and live in Kelowna, BC, a caucasian having been born, raised and bred in Alberta to hard-working caucasian parents.  I didn’t think that I would come to this but my income from OAS, CPP and a small RRSP is insufficient for my living.  And there are millions of Canadians in the same position.  I have been working since the age of six at harvest time or picking and packing vegetables in farmers fields.  I’ve worked for the CNR as a call boy and crew dispatcher, in the residential heating business, in the oilfields in Drayton Valley and in the mines in Flin Flon, Manitoba.

NO TRESPASSING ON ISLAM!

As some are speculating, I will also guess that Officer Mohamed Noor, after hearing what might have sounded like a shot, may have believed Justine Damon had a gun in her hand as she leaned toward the squad car in her pajamas. If that was the case, his allegedly firing the shots that killed the unarmed Australian woman was simply the worst of judgments in the presence of panic. In saying all that, I’m straining - times 10 - to give him some benefit of the doubt though obviously none is deserved.

Since this whole nightmare has transpired I have noticed that Minneapolis’ politically correct mayor - who had formerly been so vocal about her “equal opportunity” police force - is now not quite so instant in donning her hijab to do press interviews. And I have to agree with the recent words of the chief of police she scapegoated when she rightly noted that Justine’s death simply, “should not have happened.” In the meantime the Somalian Muslim officer who apparently fired the shots across the chest of his partner/driver, through the driver’s window (a move that counters every bit of training a police officer receives) is not saying a word to a world that is demanding some explanation.

Jihadi Johns crossing over to Jihadi Janes to escape Mosul

The progressive lib-left’s growing obsession with coddling the transgendered is giving big ideas to ISIS terrorists.

The latest ‘minority’, granted sweeping special favors by uber politically correct governments, trannies are no longer just cropping up in school bathrooms and locker rooms, their props are now copied by terrorists on the run.

So far ISIS fighters dress as women and wear makeup to avoid capture but fail miserably. (The Mirror, July 22, 2017.)

Trump should muster an international rescue of Venezuela

WASHINGTON, D.C. — There are not enough teargas canisters or bullets in Venezuela to keep dictator Nicolás Maduro in power—precisely because his regime does not have the cash available to support its repressive apparatus and import food. 

Although Maduro’s Cuban and Russian masters are willing to see hungry Venezuelans beaten into submission, the international community is not.

There is an emerging consensus among key nations in the region and among bipartisan leaders in Congress that Venezuelans can resolve this crisis if they are able to choose a new government that will end violent repression, respect democratic institutions, and rebuild a free market economy.  Urgent action by the Trump administration can ensure this outcome.

Flip California, says Travis Allen, Candidate for Governor

California Governor Jerry Brown’s heir-apparent, extremely progressive left-wing Gavin Newsom, may not be a shoe-in, after all, when it comes to California’s 2018 race for Governor.  While Democrats say Gavin Newsom is a sure thing, we must remember they thought the same of Hillary Clinton.  Newsom has competition in Travis Allen, an energizing figure cut from a cloth similar to the one Donald Trump came from. . . at least in terms of attitude and fortitude.

In Southern California, major political candidates often forget about the Inland Empire, an area that is comprised largely of the heavily populated San Bernardino and Riverside metropolitan areas.  They instead tend to focus on Los Angeles, San Diego, a number of coastal communities, the Bay Area, and Sacramento.  Travis Allen, who has announced he’s running for Governor of the State of California, broke that tendency, and came out to Riverside on Thursday Night to address the area’s politically active movers and shakers at the Riverside County Republican Party Central Committee Meeting.

Islamic Terrorist Threat From Canada Higher Than That coming from Mexico

Montana ranchers who live and work within feet of the longest international border on earth, the Canada-US border, had it right in November of 2015: the unsecured border the U.S. shares with Canada should be a bigger worry than the Mexican one.

...“In Montana, which shares a 500-mile (800-km) border with Canada, border agents and some residents say they are concerned about Ottawa’s plan to bring in 25,000 Syrians by year-end, even though the government there insists its screening will be thorough and there are limited indications that militants may be seeking to use refugee status to cross borders.

U.S. Health Care Is World’s Best, Regardless of What The Left Says

This is the second in a three-part series.

In Part 1 of this series, we discussed the content and tone of the political rhetoric leftist propagandists use to criticize the proposed GOP health care plans vis-à-vis ObamaCare. In part 2, we will describe the propaganda efforts used by progressives to cite dubious statistics to tar and misrepresent the U.S. health care system.

A recent commentary illustrates this propaganda. An article in The British Medical Journal entitled, “Medical error — the third leading cause of death in the U.S,” compares our “broken system” to those of other industrialized nations that purportedly are cheaper and better.

Tesla battery, subsidy and sustainability fantasies

The first justification was that internal combustion engines polluted too much. But emissions steadily declined, and today’s cars emit about 3% of what their predecessors did. Then it was oil imports: electric vehicles (EVs) would reduce foreign dependency and balance of trade deficits. Bountiful oil and natural gas supplies from America’s hydraulic fracturing revolution finally eliminated that as an argument.

Now the focus is on climate change. Every EV sale will help prevent assumed and asserted manmade temperature, climate and weather disasters, we’re told—even if their total sales represented less than 1% of all U.S. car and light truck sales in 2016 (Tesla sold 47,184 of the 17,557,955 vehicles sold nationwide last year), and plug-in EVs account for barely 0.15% of 1.4 billion vehicles on the road worldwide.
