On Thursday, Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) told Acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan, during a hearing on the Border Crisis with McAleenan, that the reason why Democrats are not bringing “solutions” for a vote to solve the humanitarian and security crisis at the border is because Democrats “don’t give a damn about national security or the migrants coming here, and they prefer to use children as political props.”

Rep. Chip Roy Rebukes Democrats 

For Refusing to Secure the Border

Today on Capitol Hill, Representative Chip Roy rebuked Democrats like AOC for spreading misinformation about ICE detention facilities and refusing to secure the border.



Addressing the defense of religious freedom at the 2019 Western Conservative Summit in Colorado

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
Editors' note: Former Sen. John Andrews launched the annual Western Conservative Summit for Colorado Christian University in 2010 and chaired it for the next five years. Over 2,000 delegates from Colorado and across the country attended this year. As Sen. Andrews noted at BackboneAmerica.com: "It was my honor on Friday evening, July 12, to address the Western Conservative Summit in Denver, the tenth renewal of what has become the largest annual rally on the right outside Washington DC. In terms of the gravity of the subject matter, I regard this as the most important speech I’ve ever given in fifty years in public life. My prepared remarks were as follows."
I love the Summit theme for 2019: “Defending Religious Freedom and America’s First Amendment.”  
It challenges us to begin at the very beginning and realize that unless America is a nation under God, we’re not a nation at all.
Unless every American is free to honor God as conscience may guide— and to obey God in the public square as long as no one else is harmed—unless we are free in that precious way, we’re not free at all
Someone may say, Wait a minute, you’re going too far. What about political freedom? What about economic freedom? Even without religious freedom, you still have those. 
No, you don’t.  Not really.  If government can dictate your belief system, with earthly rulers standing between you and your Creator, government owns you.
If Caesar can enslave your soul, the enslavement of your body and the confiscation of your belongings are just a matter of time.
Thought Control
Political freedom and economic freedom are a mere illusion if government can dictate your belief system.
Because when thought control takes over, there is nothing to stop the government from expanding all its other forms of control more and more—always for your own good, of course—until the government becomes God.
At which point your humanity has been cancelled. You’re left with the brutish existence of those barnyard animals in Orwell’s Animal Farm—tyrannized over by swine.
There’s a reason the First Amendment is first in our Constitution’s magnificent Bill of Rights. 
To choose one’s own belief system and to live accordingly, so long as no one else is harmed, is the very essence of liberty and limited government.  Nothing matters more.
Revelation and Victimization
In the American experience, two and a half centuries and counting, threats to religious freedom have taken two forms—revelation in the earlier period—and victimization today.
By revelation I mean the command from above, the claim that one group has a pipeline to God and other groups don’t.
After Europe’s horrific religious wars, our Founders wisely made government stand back and stay neutral between those competing claims of revelation. Overall that has worked well.
But now in the 21st century we are engulfed in the culture of victimization—the wound from within—the tyranny of hurt feelings, the vengeful claims of group injustices and group paybacks, the identity grievance blame game.
Anyone’s wound from within now matters more than anyone else’s command from above.  So we’re told.
** If an order of nuns disagrees with those to whom abortion has become a virtual sacrament, haul them into court.
** If the cross on a roadside war memorial offends a passing atheist, have it bulldozed.
Fortunately, so far, our courts have invoked the First Amendment to protect those nuns -- that cross.  
But the identity grievances keep multiplying. The floodtide of victimization keeps rising.  How long will the dike hold?
Supreme Court appointments matter.  Elections matter.  The culture matters.  Moral and spiritual renewal matters—one family, one church, one community at a time.
We need to help our non-religious neighbors wake up and see that the tyrannous temptation of thought control will eventually endanger them—as much as it endangers any Christian or Jew or Hindu or Buddhist.
That’s what freedom of religion, freedom of belief, freedom of conscience actually means.
What Freedom of Religion is Not
Now let’s talk about what freedom of religion does NOT mean. I will speak with tough love. From the heart. With no animosity or ill will toward any person. Please hear me carefully.
Suppose somebody originated a belief system that claimed exclusive right to revelation, the command from above—and harnessed that aggressive claim to a burning sense of victimization, the wound from within. What a loose cannon that would be.
Suppose its claim of revelation included a totalitarian political and economic system, not subject to reformation, set forth in a holy book not subject to revision.
Suppose its legal scholars and clergy insisted the day is coming when that book must govern all mankind, on penalty of death to whoever would refuse to submit.
Suppose finally that this belief system had been around for over a thousand years— deepening its victim complex, its rage -- reinforcing its unbending absolutism and its dreams of global conquest— until today it commands the allegiance of a quarter of the earth’s population on every part of the earth’s surface.
I’m talking about the belief system called Islam.  
Submit or Die
It’s true we all know Muslims who are likable neighbors or capable co-workers.  Decent patriotic Americans who humbly love Allah. That’s not what I’m talking about. 
I’m talking about this absolutist totalitarian worldview and political doctrine that demands everyone, everyone, you and me included, ultimately submit or die.
So here’s the hard question for all of us as freedom-loving Americans. Put it in terms of that bumper sticker, the one that says “Coexist.”
How can aggressive dominant Islam and its supreme law, Sharia, coexist with friendly tolerant America and its supreme law, the Constitution? I don’t honestly see how it can. 
I don’t claim to know the way forward in this tremendous, tragic clash of civilizations.
But I do know this: The simplistic approach of just granting unconditional quote/unquote freedom of religion to a religion that doesn’t believe in freedom—and have no doubt, Islam does not—that approach is civilizational suicide.
Sharia vs. the Constitution
Don’t take it from me.  Read the Muslim Brotherhood’s takeover plan for an Islamic USA, already 50 years along, established as evidence in the Holy Land Foundation trial.  
The shockingly well-connected Brotherhood and its lying propaganda arm, CAIR, are waging civilizational jihad to take us down from within by our own good-hearted impulse to live and let live, our own sense of fair play.
The answer is not a witch hunt. Not persecution. Not some kind of ban.  Not interfering with anyone’s belief system—provided it doesn’t interfere with ours.
But the answer is certainly not to just keep doing what we’re doing—that’s a formula for defeat. There’s a better way, there has to be.  As Justice Robert Jackson famously said, “The Constitution is not a suicide pact.”
If we in this generation don’t rouse ourselves and defeat the Muslim Brotherhood, our children’s generation will be worse off than Europe is today—and I don’t even want to think about our grandchildren’s generation.
I’m sure some of you will disagree with me. So will some other speakers this weekend.  They will tell you that a good and faithful Muslim can also be a good and faithful American.
Sorry, but I don’t see how.  Not when one holds Sharia law supreme, the Koran, the command from above—and the other holds the Constitution supreme.  Something has to give.
Two Enemies
We can all look back across the ten years of summits and recognize some changes in ourselves.  For me, I didn’t realize then what has become chillingly clear to me now.  
America is in a war, a war to the death—and it’s not going well.
It’s largely a war of ideas right now, not violent, at least not yet.  Other than the occasional Antifa riot or jihadi massacre, the conflict so far is a battle for hearts and minds.
We can only win that battle if we summon the courage to name our enemies—two of them.  The name of one is Marx.  The name of the other is Mohammed.
Ideology of Perpetual War
Maybe their intentions were good. Who knows? But their legacy is not good. It’s a legacy of righteous ruthless violence, justified by an ideology of perpetual war.
** For the forces of Marx, that means a war of the oppressed against the oppressors, defined by the victim status of their identity or class.
** For the forces of Mohammed, that means a war of the believers against the infidels, demanding that everyone on earth must eventually either submit to Sharia law or die.
Does it give you a chill to hear me indict Mohammed for a millennium of immiseration, oppression, brutality, and slaughter?  Do you worry for my safety, blaspheming the Prophet this way?
I thank you for your concern, but you just proved my point. No one in the USA should have to fear violent reprisals for voicing his belief system.  That’s why we have a First Amendment. 
We Don’t Bow to That
So I ask you to join me in naming our enemies. Their followers will howl with indignation, but secretly they will respect us more.
We Americans, the land of the free, have already been targeted as their enemies, after all.  When we drop the pretense and get real, we merely return the compliment.
Join me in calling these deadly ideologies what they are, every time their victim rhetoric raises its hateful head.
“That’s Marx talking,” we should say. Or—“That’s Mohammed talking.”
Speak out and say, “We don’t buy that. We don’t bow to that. We don’t compromise with that.  We don’t split the difference with that.  We don’t make concessions to that.”
We don’t use that guilt-tripping vocabulary. So-called political correctness is Marxist brainwashing. We scorn it.
We don’t accept that accusatory premise, that lie. So-called Islamophobia is Mohammed’s intellectual bullying, emotional blackmail to silence us. We spurn it.
They Hate Religious Freedom
Again, don’t take my word for it.  Read the work of David Horowitz—Frank Gaffney—John Guandolo. The work of Robert Spencer or Pamela Geller. All good friends of CCU.
Do a web search for Ami Horowitz and his devastating new video about the Muslim Brotherhood.
Or simply look at a map of the world and notice which countries have the least religious freedom.  
It’s countries that follow Marx, such as China and North Korea and Cuba and Venezuela.
Or countries that follow Mohammed, such as Saudi Arabia or Pakistan, Egypt or Turkey.
The more that Marx’s ideas and Mohammed’s ideas take hold here, the more our religious freedom is endangered.
Those ideas simply do not mix with the ideas of Jefferson and Adams and Lincoln.  It’s oil and water.  There’s no meeting each other halfway.
** The forces of Marx want to make the government everyone’s God.
** The forces of Mohammed want to make their God everyone’s government.
Neither is in any way acceptable to the American way of life.
We Can Defeat Them
Can we meet and defeat the existential threat they pose to this sweet land of liberty?  Absolutely we can.
It has only been our softness, our sentimentality, our self-absorption that ever allowed them to make the inroads they have.
It’s time to rise up and say enough of that lethargy.  It’s time to rally to the flag whether Nike and Kaepernick like it not.
Let the rebirth begin right here, right now, at Western Conservative Summit 2019.  I couldn’t be more proud to be standing alongside each and every one of you in this fight.
God bless you, and God bless the United States of America.



Bill was in response to San Bernardino attack

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
Ilhan Omar voted against a bill that limited life insurance payments to beneficiaries of terrorists who died while committing acts of terror while she was a state representative in Minnesota.
Omar was only one of two “nay” votes of Minnesota bill HF1397 which “may limit payment to a beneficiary” of a life insurance policy “if the insured’s death occurs directly or indirectly as a result of the insured’s furtherance of terrorism.”
The bill ultimately passed in 2017 by a landslide 127-2 margin.
“The bill comes in response to Syed Farook’s shooting rampage in San Bernardino, Calif., in December 2015 that killed 14 people and injured 22,” stated a press release. “Authorities suggest Farook made sure his life insurance policies worth $275,000 were valid before the incident.”
“After Farook died in a shootout with police, his mother fought to remain the beneficiary of those life insurance policies [which were based out of Minnesota].”
The press release didn’t explain why Omar voted against the bill, although it did explain that the other “nay” voter felt the bill contained a technicality the way it was written.
Months prior, when she was first elected to the State House, Omar asked a judge “for compassion in ISIS recruit sentencing,” according to Fox 9 News of Minnesota.
The letter is posted below in full:
Honorable Judge Davis,
As you undoubtedly deliberate with great caution the sentencing of nine recently convicted Somali-American men, I bring to your attention the ramifications of sentencing young men who made a consequential mistake to decades in federal prison.
Incarcerating 20-year-old men for 30 or 40 years is essentially a life sentence.
Society will have no expectations of the to be 50 or 60-year-old released prisoners; it will view them with distrust and revulsion.
Such punitive measures not only lack efficacy, they inevitably create an environment in which extremism can flourish, aligning with the presupposition of terrorist recruitment: “Americans do not accept you and continue to trivialize your value. Instead of being a nobody, be a martyr.”
The best deterrent to fanaticism is a system of compassion.
We must alter our attitude and approach; if we truly want to affect change, we should refocus our efforts on inclusion and rehabilitation.
A long-term prison sentence for one who chose violence to combat direct marginalization is a statement that our justice system misunderstands the guilty.
A restorative approach to justice assesses the lure of criminality and addresses it.
The desire to commit violence is not inherent to people — it is the consequences of systematic alienation; people seek violent solutions when the process established for enacting change is inaccessible to them.
Fueled by disaffection turned to malice, if the guilty were willing to kill and be killed fighting perceived injustice, imagine the consequence of them hearing, “I believe you can be rehabilitated.
I want you to become part of my community, and together we will thrive.”
We use this form of distributive justice for patients with chemical dependencies; treatment and societal reintegration.
The most effective penance is making these men ambassadors of reform.
The restorative approach provides a long-term solution – though the self-declared Islamic State may soon suffer defeat, their radical approach to change-making will continue as it has throughout history – by criminalizing the undergirding construct rather than its predisposed victims.
Therein, this ruling can set a precedent and has the potential to be a landmark case in addressing extremism.
Thank you for your careful attention,
Ilhan Omar State Representative-Elect – MN 60B

Rep. Lee Zeldin: Shame On Ilhan Omar For Propping Up BDS Movement, Blaming Israel

A staunchly feminist magazine in Germany has defied the rules of mainstream journalism, penning a scathingly frank exposé on the destruction of European swimming culture by migrants.
Emma, a publication modeled on Ms. Magazine, has honed in on an explosive issue affecting much of Western Europe – sexual assaults and physical attacks by primarily Middle Eastern and African young males at once peaceful, family-friendly summer recreation spots – and also blasted those who refuse to properly identify the perpetrators.
"Harassed, insulted, grabbed: Women become fair game in outdoor swimming pools. The perpetrators? The vast majority are migrants," writes Annika Ross. "Swimming pool attendants complain: It has intensified since 2015."
"For a long time politicians and the media have not called the problem by its name for fear of the accusation of racism. But that only exacerbates it. Now the lifeguards are talking.”
Harkening to a healthier era in Germany when women and girls would grab their swimmers on a hot summer's day and head to the local pool or pond, Ross laments that those days are now over.
"Women are massively harassed by migrants. Lifeguards are abused," says Peter Harzheim, president of the Federal Association of German Lifeguards. "In addition there is a high degree of violence and the lack of any respect. An outdoor swimming pool should be a place of recreation and not a place of horror."
Ross cites police statistics for the North Rhine-Westphalia state, where pool attacks are the worst and predominantly perpetrated by "young men of North African, Arab and Turkish origin."
Ross offers a detailed list of disturbing incidents which closely aligns with a recent report by Infowars Europe, including an episode in which a family was surrounded and threatened by 400 mostly North African males and required some 70 police officers to disperse, as well as a slew of other physical and sexual attacks on bathers, lifeguards, and even children at facilities across Western Europe.
"Since 2015 there have been problems in our baths with young migrants. It was a creeping process," Harzheim says. "In the meantime, the impression prevails that only young men of Arab descent may dare to go to the outdoor pool."
"How these men deal with women is unacceptable."
German officials are now reportedly considering deploying armed patrols at pools and also imposing a knife ban.
"Is that what we want - an outdoor swimming pool in which uniforms make patrols?” Harzheim asks. “At the moment there is no other solution. We need more backing from the police and also from politicians. With these rioters, we have to be tougher. Those who do not call the problem by its name, only intensify it.”


MS-13 Gang Member "Lucipher" 1 of 22 Arrested for "Medieval-Style" Murders

Machetes and knives used to dismember, cut out hearts

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
Twenty-two MS-13 gang members in the sanctuary city of Los Angeles, California have been charged with seven murders committed with machetes in what the FBI called “medieval-style violence.”
On Monday, a 12-count indictment was handed down by Los Angeles prosecutors who say the gang is becoming more powerful thanks to the massive influx of illegal aliens coming from Central America.
Over the past two years, the gang members have killed members of rival gangs, people thought to be working with police and even a homeless man living on their “turf.”
Some of the MS-13 gangsters boast creepy nicknames such as “Desastre,” “Lucifer,” “Splinter” and “Dexter,” the latter of which could possibly be an homage to the serial killer television show.
The Assistant Director of the FBI’s Los Angeles office, Paul Delacourt, said, “Taking violent offenders off the street should send a message to MS-13 members and their associates that medieval-style violence and senseless murder will not be tolerated in Los Angeles.”
One of the rival gang members who was butchered had his limbs cut off and his heart cut out and thrown into a canyon.
In addition to the homicides, carried out with machetes, knives or baseball bats, the twenty-two criminals are being charged with racketeering and conspiracy.
MS-13 members continue to flood into the United States every day and Infowars will continue to expose this threat to the country.

The World Health Organization has declaredthe Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo an international health emergency.
The outbreak, which might have deadly consequences at the southwest border of the United States, has killed more than 2,500 people.
Hundreds of African migrants, some of them from the Congo, are crossing the border with Mexico. Any with Ebola might infect not only the illegal aliens tramping up from the Northern Triangle, but also the border agents and anyone else who must deal with them.
More than 30,000 Africans were headed for the border, The New American reported in early July, citing a report from the Center for Immigration Studies.
How many, if any, have the death-dealing virus is unknown, as is the number with Ebola who have crossed. We do know this: Ebola kills and kills fast.
WHO Report The declaration from WHO’s Emergency Committee for Ebola Virus Disease published yesterday.
“There are increased numbers of cases in Butembo and Mabalako; the epicentre has moved from Mabalako to Beni; and there is one imported case in Goma,” the committee reported.
Those cities are in the eastern part of the country, near Rwanda and Uganda.
The committee’s report describes the conditions that help spread the grim contagion, which sound similar to those in the detention facilities where federal immigration officials are housing the Africans and Central Americans.
“Factors affecting the outbreak include population movement in highly densely populated areas; weak infection and prevention control practices in many health facilities,” the committee reported.
Beni remains the epicentre of the outbreak, with 46% of the cases over the last 3 weeks. Mangina has 18% of the cases, and one new case in Goma came from Beni, with diagnosis confirmed within one hour of the patient’s arrival at a health facility. The patient, who was not known to be a contact, traveled to Goma with several other people in a bus. When the vehicle broke down, he went to a health facility via motorbike. He was transferred to an Ebola Treatment Centre, but later died. Response to the case in Goma took place within 72 hours. Contact tracing was performed, with 75 contacts vaccinated, as well as co-travellers, and family members are being monitored. Surveillance is being reinforced and readiness strengthened. 15,000 people cross the border from Goma to Rwanda every day, as Goma is an important centre of economic activities with Rwanda. Closing this border would strongly affect the population of Goma and have adverse implications for the response. There is a continuing need for increased awareness among the population on the outbreak situation and stronger engagement on health-seeking behaviours.
The committee reported that Ebola is infecting 80 people a week, and “the recent travel to and from Uganda of a local trader who later died of Ebola demonstrates that the risk remains high for bordering countries.”
In other words, border agents and other illegal aliens at the border are at risk of the deadly infection. State and federal health and immigration officials, along with local health, hospital, welfare, and public school authorities should consider themselves warned. Nosocomial transmission, or that occurring in a hospital, is a concern, the committee reported.
As of Tuesday, the committee confirmed 2,512 cases, including 136 health workers, 40 of whom died. The web page that tracks the outbreak put the figure at 2,522 cases, with 1698 deaths.
So more than 67 percent of those who have contracted the virus in the latest outbreak are dead.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, the seven-variety virus, which spreads in bodily fluids, causes a hemorrhagic fever that is often if not mostly fatal. The symptoms include fever, fatigue, vomiting, diarrhea, weakness, muscle pain, severe headache, stomach pain, and hemorrhaging.
Diseased Africans Headed to Your Town? As CIS explained in a startling report published July 1, 35,000 African “migrants” are traveling north through Panama and Central America. They hope, like the impoverished Central American “migrants” from the Northern Triangle, to cross the border, claim “asylum,” then stay in the United States.
The group includes Congolese, Ghanaians, and Cameroonians who might well carry the deadly virus. Like the Central American illegals, they know the radical leftists are stopping the president from closing the borders, and as well, the very long time required to assess an asylum claim.
The Africans also know what lies they must tell to make their asylum claims sound credible.


The Second Circuit Court of Appeals upholds the ruling that President Trump cannot block people from his Twitter account, and now Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is getting sued for doing the same thing. One America’s Ryan Girdusky sat down with former New York Assemblyman Dov Hikind and has the story.
