FLORIDA GOVERNOR SIGNS BAN ON SANCTUARY CITIES; PRESIDENT TRUMP APPROVES

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said he was fulfilling a campaign promise on Friday when he signed into law a bill prohibiting local municipalities from adopting “sanctuary city” laws. The new law, which becomes effective next month, also requires law-enforcement officials in the state to “cooperate” with federal ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) officials when they present a “detainer request” on individuals being held on criminal charges in the state. The new law also provides sanctions for law-enforcement officials who don't comply.
Tweeted DeSantis: 
Earlier this year I made a promise that we would ban sanctuary cities in Florida and today we are delivering on that promise.
I am proud to sign the bill … to uphold the law and ensure that our communities are safe. 
Then the governor compared sanctuary cities to “gun-free zones”:
Sanctuary cities basically created law-free zones where people can come to our state illegally and our country illegally, commit criminal offenses and then just walk right out the door and continue to do it.
Upon learning about the action of DeSantis, President Trump tweeted: “Florida Governor Ron DeSantis just signed a bill banning Sanctuary Cities … & forcing all law enforcement agencies to cooperate with Federal Immigration authorities.”
Trump added: “More and more states want to do this but their governors and leaders don’t have the courage to do so. The politics will soon mandate, however, because people … are demanding that Sanctuary Cities be GONE.”
On the other hand, Thomas Kennedy, the political director at Florida Immigrant Coalition, called it “harsh” and “horrible” and is considering suing to keep the law from taking effect.
Florida joins nine other states with similar sanctuary laws, while 10 states have declared themselves to be sanctuary states.
At the moment no Florida municipality has declared itself to be a sanctuary city, but the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office (in central Florida) has declined ICE requests in the past unless they had a court order or a federal criminal warrant. As State Senator Joe Gruters, a sponsor of the bill, explained: “This is not about illegal aliens.… This is about criminal illegal aliens who have broken additional laws while they’re here.”
As a result, the impact in Florida will scarcely be noticeable, according to Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri: “It doesn’t change anything because we’ve been doing that [cooperating with ICE] for years,” he pointed out.
The debate in the Florida legislature was noisy and lengthy as both sides made their positions known. Those opposed claimed that if the bill were passed the state’s economy would be damaged, that its reputation would be tarnished, that visitor traffic would be diminished, that relations between local police and immigrant communities (one-fifth of Florida’s residents were born elsewhere) would be negatively impacted, and local law-enforcement efforts would become more difficult. The House passed the bill 68-45 and the Senate passed it 22-18.
Florida joins Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, Iowa, North Carolina, Mississippi, Missouri, Tennessee, and Texas in passing the law requiring law enforcement to cooperate with ICE officials.
At this writing no challenges to the new law have been filed. But if there are challenges, they would likely be based on the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures in the absence of a probable cause warrant. Since the Fourth Amendment originally applied only to the federal government, there is little case law to guide any court. It wasn’t until Mapp v. Ohio (1961) that the Supreme Court applied the due process clause of the 14th Amendment to the Fourth Amendment to the states.
As a result the issue divides the country and is far from settled.

PASTOR JAILED DURING “DRAG QUEEN STORY HOUR”~SWAT TEAM SNIPERS POSITIONED ATOP LIBRARY ROOF

PASTOR JAILED DURING “DRAG QUEEN STORY HOUR”~SWAT TEAM SNIPERS POSITIONED 
ATOP LIBRARY ROOF

SPOKANE, Wash. — A Baptist pastor was arrested and jailed on Saturday after refusing to move across the street from the Spokane, Washington Public Library while exercising his free speech against a “Drag Queen Story Hour.” The event had a significant militaristic police presence, including camouflaged snipers positioned atop the roof to oversee the large crowd that stood both for and against the men dressed like women reading stories to children.
Afhsin Yaghtin of New Covenant Baptist Church was arrested for obstructing an officer as he contended with police that the South Hill Library is public property and that he should be able to speak adjacent to the facility instead of being required to stand across the street.
Video footage posted to social media shows police telling Yaghtin that if he does not support the event, he needs to stand on the other side of the street, away from the library — though those defending the drag queens were permitted to be on the same side.
“So, I can stand right here,” Yaghtin states to one officer. “No, you are going to need to go across the street,” the officer replies.
Yaghtin then speaks to another officer, and is again told to stand across the street. He asserts that the library should be considered public property as the event is solely in one room.
“This is a public library. The only event that they’ve reserved is a private room,” Yaghtin argued. “The rest of the library is U.S. property. … I have the right to free speech wherever I want to speak.”
He was soon taken into custody and charged with obstructing the police, or as reports state, “trying to enter the non-designated protest area.” Yaghtin has since been released.
According to The Spokesman-Review, an estimated 40 police officers were stationed outside of the library. Those who supported the event — approximately 400 in all — stood adjacent to library property, and those opposed to the “Drag Queen Story Time” — about 200 concerned residents — were asked by police to stand on the other side of the street.
One photo posted to social media shows a man in camouflage standing atop the South Hill Library. The Charles Carroll Society also posted photos on its website of men on the roof holding binoculars. See here and here. Sgt. Terry Preuniger of the Spokane Police Department told reporters that the police had thought people were going to bring firearms to the library.
“From looking at online conversations, police expected to see people armed on both sides, which resulted in a strong police presence on Saturday, he said, but no civilians showed up openly carrying guns,” The Spokesman-Review states.
“The police presence was a little ridiculous. They had snipers on the roofs. They wouldn’t allow us into the library,” Anna Bohach of 500 Mom Strong told the outlet.
A law enforcement dispatcher supervisor through Spokane County 911 confirmed to Christian News Network that those atop the library roof were snipers “most likely” with the Spokane Police Department SWAT team as opposed to the county SWAT team.

Other photos of the event show three drag queen supporters dressed as “angels” with sheets for wings, appearing to do so to block out the opposition. Some present held signs such as “All hail the queens,” “God is love; why do you hate” and “Oh, look a guy in a dress reading to kids” with a drawing of Jesus surrounded by children.
“If Jesus was around today, He would be on this side,” one man who brought his son and daughter to the Story Hour claimed. His son wore a dress to the event.
One drag queen, who goes by the stage name Katie Rockswell, read a book to the children entitled “A Family Is a Family Is a Family.” The short story is about children having different parental situations, as some have a mom and a dad, some have two “dads,” some live with their grandmother, and some are split between both parents.
Those who opposed the event preached in the open air, held signs or sang songs. Signs included, “Teach your kids to love their DNA. Gender fluidity is a lie,” “Read the Bible,” “Drag = misogyny” and “Only Jesus saves sinners from Hell.”
According to reports, an estimated 50 children attended the event with their parents.
“May God use this for His glory and His glory alone,” Yaghtin said of his arrest on social media following his release. “God bless all my supporters and friends and those who inspire me to stand strong for the Lord Jesus by their godly example!”

PITTSBURGH MAYOR PRESENTS DICK’S AWARD FOR GUN CONTROL ADVOCACY

Goodbye, Dick's. And good riddance.
PITTSBURGH MAYOR PRESENTS DICK’S AWARD 
FOR GUN CONTROL ADVOCACY 
BY NRAHQ
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
Fairfax, VA  -(Ammoland.com)- On June 4-5, the annual Yale Mayors College & CEO Summit was held in New York City. The theme of this year’s CEO Summit was “Trumpeting the Issues without Becoming the Issue: Selective Use of CEO Voice.” Making clear that much of the event was about corporate virtue signaling strategy, “Session 2” on the June 4 agenda was titled, “The Courage to Stand Alone: CEO Voice & Virtue.”
With the promotion of virtue-signaling the goal, Yale secured its two finest practitioners in their respective fields. At the event, Pittsburgh Mayor William Peduto presented DICK’S Sporting Goods CEO Edward Stack with the “Maverick in Leadership Award.” According to a press release from Peduto’s office, the award was for Stack’s “work on behalf of common-sense gun safety measures.”
Peduto presented the award alongside Ethan Allen CEO Farooq Kathwari. History buffs will note the irony attendant to the CEO of a company that trades off the name of an American Revolutionary War patriot promoting gun control.
The choice of Peduto to present the award to Stack was inspired. In his pursuit of gun control, Peduto has breached his duty to the public by advocating for local anti-gun measures that are illegal under Pennsylvania law. It can be argued that Stack has deviated from his duty to shareholders in order to indulge his political predilections.
In December, Peduto’s office proposed a raft of local gun control ordinances in violation of Pennsylvania’s firearms preemption law. The relevant statute (18 Pa.C.S.A. § 6120) makes clear,
No county, municipality or township may in any manner regulate the lawful ownership, possession, transfer or transportation of firearms, ammunition or ammunition components when carried or transported for purposes not prohibited by the laws of this Commonwealth.
Moreover, the matter of local gun ordinances had already been settled by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. In a 1996 case involving a local ordinance that restricted commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms, Ortiz v. Pennsylvania, the court determined,
Because the ownership of firearms is constitutionally protected, its regulation is a matter of statewide concern. The constitution does not provide that the right to bear arms shall not be questioned in any part of the commonwealth except Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, where it may be abridged at will, but that it shall not be questioned in any part of the commonwealth. Thus, regulation of firearms is a matter of concern in all of Pennsylvania, not merely in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, and the General Assembly, not city councils, is the proper forum for the imposition of such regulation.
Despite the statute and clear precedent, in April Peduto signed legislation restricting the “use” of commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms and standard capacity magazines within the city. NRA immediately filed suit against Pittsburgh to vindicate city residents’ rights.
In February 2018, Stack announced that DICK’S and its affiliated Field & Stream stores (no relation to the publication of the same name) would stop selling commonly-owned semi-automatic rifles and would no longer sell any firearms to young adults ages 18-20. Stack also made clear that DICK’S would encourage lawmakers to pass a host of gun control measures, including a ban on commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms and standard capacity magazines, a ban on firearm sales to young adults ages 18-20, and the criminalization of private firearm transfers. The company went on to destroy its existing stock of commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms and hire corporate lobbyists to push its anti-gun agenda.
While Stack’s subsequent appearances in the national media might have boosted his ego, the CEO’s gun control push didn’t boost his company’s bottom line. In August 2018, DICK’S blamed sluggish sales partly on, “negative reactions to our policies related to the sale of firearms and accessories.” In December, DICK’S noted that it may close its hunting and fishing-focused Field & Stream stores. In March, DICK’S announced that it would stop selling firearms entirely in 125 of its stores. Later that month, Bloomberg reported that “Dick’s estimates the policy change cost the company about $150 million in lost sales…”
Given the acclamation Peduto’s anarchic behavior has received in the legacy press and gun control circles, look for the lawless mayor to receive some dubious “award” for his gun control advocacy in the coming months. Hopefully Stack will be on hand to present the award and complete the promise of this mutual admiration society. With their haphazard attack-gun-rights-at-all-costs approach, Peduto and Stack deserve each other. Sadly, their constituents and shareholders don’t deserve either.

MUSLIM MP SLAMS UK GOVERNMENT FOR SILENCE OVER TRUMP’S TWITTER ATTACK ON LONDON MUSLIM MAYOR, SADIQ KHAN

MUSLIM MP SLAMS UK GOVERNMENT FOR SILENCE OVER TRUMP’S TWITTER ATTACK ON LONDON MUSLIM MAYOR, SADIQ KHAN 
BY CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
UK Labour MP Naz Shah says that the government is “failing to stand with minority communities” and allowing “hatred and bigoted views to become legitimised”. Her accusation follows what she called “the government’s shameful silence after Donald Trump took to Twitter to attack London Mayor Sadiq Khan.” Trump had every reason to. Here’s a general recap of the state of affairs in Khan’s London:
A knife crime epidemic has struck London and has seen over 51 murders this year. A Muslim migrant “acid gang” was sentenced four months ago following violent, unprovoked attacks on gays. London gangs also include “the Mali Boys,” which are becoming “more ‘organised, ruthless and driven by drugs profits.” Mali is a Muslim country plagued by Islamic rebel groups aiming to impose strict Islamic law across the country. The groups include: Ansar Dine, Movement for Unity and Jihad in West Africa, al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, the Signed-in-Blood Battalion and the Islamic Movement for Azawad. Somali rape gangs have also victimized girls in London.
London has become a cesspool of crime where jihad preachers speak and recruit freely. An Islamic State jihadist “tried to create jihadist child army in east London,” and now, Somalian parents are sending their children back home to save them from knife attacks in Sadiq Khan’s London.
Naz Shah stated: “If Donald Trump can endorse the far-right that use racist tropes to attack the Mayor of London and that does not warrant a response from our Prime Minister or those planning to become Prime Minister, then it sets a dangerous and worrying precedence.”
Shah is nervous over so-called “islamophobe” , Boris Johnson, becoming the UK’s next Prime Minister. Days ago, a Conservative Muslim leader Mohammed Amin compared Johnson to “Hitler”, and vowed to quit if he becomes PM. Johnson once compared the image of  burqa-clad women to “letterboxes” and “bank robbers”, and refused to apologize. After an unleashing of criticism and a follow-up investigation, Johnson was cleared of any intentional wrongdoing.
What sets the “dangerous and worrying precedent” is not Trump’s open disapproval of Sadiq Khan, but Naz Shah’s trying to defend the indefensible. Shah’s own infamous retweet, that the young victims of Muslim rape gangs need to “shut up for the good of diversity” is far worse than anything Trump could tweet. Westerners are increasingly recognizing with horror that infidel victims are of no concern to the likes of Shah who bends over backwards to cover up the worst abuses by  Muslim perpetrators under covers of “islamophobia” and “racism”. The real aim is to protect the image of Islam and of Muslims.
Meantime Sadiq Khan defended the arrest of a Christian preacher for being “Islamophobic”.
“Muslim MP accuses government of ‘shameful silence’ over Trump’s attack on Sadiq Khan”, by Basit Mahmood, Metro UK, June 16, 2019:
The government is ‘failing to stand with minority communities’ and allowing ‘hatred and bigoted views to become legitimised’, a Labour MP has said.
Shadow minister of state for women and equalities, Naz Shah, made the remarks following what she calls the government’s shameful silence after Donald Trump took to Twitter to attack London Mayor Sadiq Khan.
He labelled Mr Khan a ‘national disgrace’ following further violence on the streets of the capital and said ‘London needs a new mayor ASAP.’
Two teenagers were murdered within minutes of each other in different parts of the capital on Friday, while a man was stabbed to death on Saturday afternoon.
Trump retweeted a post about the killings by Katie Hopkins, which called the capital ‘Stab-City’, alongside two screenshots of BBC News articles detailing the violence.
She added: ‘This is Khan’s Londonistan’. The term Londonistan has been widely condemned for being a highly racialised term that was used against Sadiq Khan because of his Pakistani and Muslim heritage. Ms Shah told Metro.co.uk: ‘If Donald Trump can endorse the far-right that use racist tropes to attack the Mayor of London and that does not warrant a response from our Prime Minister or those planning to become Prime Minister, then it sets a dangerous and worrying precedence.
‘Minority communities are directly impacted on when hatred and bigoted views are legitimised…..

DUELING SENATE RESOLUTIONS ON ANTI-SEMITISM CONDEMN OMAR, PROMOTE ISLAM

DUELING SENATE RESOLUTIONS ON ANTI-SEMITISM CONDEMN OMAR, PROMOTE ISLAM
BY DANIEL GREENFIELD
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
On Thursday, June 13, the Senate passed two resolutions on anti-Semitism by unanimous consent.
The two resolutions, passed back to back, offer an interesting contrast.
The first resolution, 189, sponsored by Ted Cruz is a brief summary and condemnation of anti-Semitism. The submitters lean Republican, but not that much so, they also include Senator Coons, Cortez Mateo and a few others.
Aside from a general summary, Resolution 189 zooms in on a number of areas. One of them obviously involves a reference to Rep. Omar.
Whereas, in the United States, Jews have faced, and continue to face, false accusations of divided loyalty between the United States and Israel, false claims that they purchase political power with money, and false accusations about control of the financial system, along with other negative stereotypes; and
Resolution 189 then concludes…
Whereas Jews are the targets of the majority of hate crimes committed in the United States against any religious group, including attacks on houses of worship and Jewish community centers: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved, That the United States Senate condemns and commits to combatting all forms of antisemitism.
Resolution 189 was then followed by Senator Kamala Harris’ intersectional Resolution 231 on the attack on Chabad of Poway.
Unlike, Cruz’s mainstream resolution, the only names on this one are that of Harris and her fellow Californian, Senator Dianne Feinstein.
Resolution 231 is good when it’s specifically dealing with the attack, and does mention, “Oscar Stewart, a veteran of the Army, and Jonathan Morales, a border patrol agent, bravely fought back, running toward the perpetrator of the attack.”
But its real agenda becomes a rant about white supremacism.
Nazis are obviously bad. And they’ve been responsible for a number of the violent attacks against Jews in recent years. But they’re not the only form of anti-Semitism around.
Whereas Cruz’s resolution condemned a spectrum of anti-Semitism, across political lines, and condemned principles of anti-Semitism, Harris’ resolution follows the lefty party line of reducing anti-Semitism to an issue of white supremacism.
Resolution 231 quickly switches over from a condemnation of anti-Semitism to emphasizing white supremacism while ignoring other forms of anti-Semitism, and then sidelining Jews in the intersectional rainbow, claiming.
“Whereas growing White supremacy and White nationalism is—
(1) a threat to the security of the United States; and
(2) antithetical to the American values of dignity and respect of all people, including Jewish, Muslim, Black, Latino, Asian American, immigrant, and LGBTQ peoples; and…”
White supremacy, like Black supremacy, is obviously bad.) Or less obviously bad to lefties who celebrate hate groups like Black Lives Matter), but unlike Islamic Supremacism, I wouldn’t describe it as a threat to the security of the United States.
Not at this stage.
The pairing of Muslims and Jews isn’t coincidental. This becomes the agenda in the Harris resolution.
The Harris resolution then… “reaffirms the commitment of the United States to condemn—
(A) anti-Semitism;
(B) White supremacy;
(C) White nationalism; and
(D) all forms of hatred.”
Why not mention the Islamic plots against synagogues, including some recent ones? The answer is all too obvious.
Neither resolution actually mentions this major problem.
But where the Cruz resolution at least defined the motives behind anti-Semitism, Harris attempts to erase any acknowledgement of anti-Semitism that doesn’t proceed from white supremacism.
And that implictly gives Rep. Omar and her own leftist allies a pass.

KOCH BROTHERS JOIN GEORGE SOROS’ CENSORSHIP REGIME

KOCH BROTHERS JOIN GEORGE SOROS’ 
CENSORSHIP REGIME 
Leftist advocacy groups like the ADL, Vox, and the Southern Poverty Law Center are pushing their anti-conservative standards on Facebook, Google, and Twitter to police political speech and thought. Now they won’t only have Soros money to help them carryout their censorship of conservatives, but also the collaboration of the Koch Brothers.
