Bernie Sanders

USA – -( Presidential contender U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders is either 
straight out lying, ignorant or seriously uninformed about gun laws in the United States. 
None of these is a viable qualification to set policy on America’s right to keep and bear 
arms. Sen. Sanders (I-Vt.) answered questions at a CNN town hall event just prior to the South Carolina debate and primary about how his proposed administration would tackle the criminal misuse of firearms. He immediately pivoted to gun control talking points that have no foundational truth. Sen. Sanders laid out his attack on Second Amendment rights in a five-part plan.

Criminals Already Prohibited
“Number one, we need universal background checks,” Sen. Sanders said. “People who have a violent past, including domestic violence should not be owning guns.”
The Vermont senator clearly glosses over what is already standing law. Individuals who have been convicted of violent felonies and domestic violence crimes are already prohibited individuals. The background check Form 4473, which is required to the purchase of a firearm at retail, asks the individual if they are under indictment or have been convicted of a felony for which a judge could imprison that person for more than a year. It’s Question 11 (b) and (c). Answering yes to either of these questions is an automatic disqualifier.
If someone lies on that answer, it’s also a federal crime and if they are indicted or convicted, the background check runs through the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) will come back with a denial to the federal firearms licensee, which immediately halts the sale.
Nonexistent Gun Show Loopholes
“Number two, we have got to end the so-called gun show loophole which allows people to legally purchase guns while avoiding a background check,” Sen. Sanders said.
This is a fallacy. The “gun show loophole” is a gun control talking point that has no basis in fact. Licensed firearms retailers that sell guns at gun shows are required to run background checks the same way it happens in a store. The person buying the firearm must complete the background check form, then the firearms retailer verifies with the FBI’s NICS that the individual is not prohibited. “Unlicensed dealers” selling is a euphemism for criminals. If someone is “engaged in the business” of selling firearms, they must be licensed and regulated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. That means maintaining detailed records, abiding by all applicable federal and state laws and regulations and being prepared for ATF inspection. If someone is selling firearms for a living without doing this, they are criminals, plain and simple.
NSSF’s Don’t Lie
Don't Lie For The Other GuyDon't Lie For The Other Guy
“Number three, we’ve got to end the so-called strawman provision which allows you to legally walk in, buy as many guns as you want and sell them to gangs and criminal elements,” Sen. Sanders added.
This one is out of left field, where apparently the senator gathers his gun control ideas. Someone who attempts to buy a firearm for another who is unable to pass the required federal background check, or does not want his or her full name associated with the purchase, is committing a crime. This is a felony, punishable by 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. NSSF, as the firearms and ammunition industry’s trade association, partnered with the ATF to combat this and funds retailer education seminars to identify the signs of a potential straw purchase and stop it in its tracks. NSSF also funds its Don’t Lie for the Other GuyTM campaigns with retailers and law enforcement to remind the public of the dangers and consequences of this crime.
Aside from the crime of buying a firearm for someone who isn’t the true recipient, anyone passing along a gun to a known criminal is committing another felony. Sen. Sanders said he wants this to be against the law, but he should know, as a federal lawmaker, that this is already the case.
Ban MSRs
“Number four, what we have got to do and something I have supported for like 30 years, is ban the sale and distribution of assault weapons in this country,” Sen Sanders said.
Again, this is already against the law. Any automatic firearm made after 1986 cannot be sold to the general public, as outlined in the Firearms Owners Protection Act of 1986. Those made prior to 1986 are available but require extensive additional background checks, including fingerprinting and registration with the ATF. They are also prohibitively expensive because they’re so rare.
What Sen. Sanders is really calling for is a ban on the sale of modern sporting rifles, which are semiautomatic rifles. They’re the most popular selling centerfire rifle on the market today. More than 17.7 million of these rifles are in circulation, making them commonly owned. Sen. Sanders wants a ban on technology that is more than 100 years old and would jeopardize the Second Amendment rights of all Americans to purchase the firearms of their choosing to self-defense, hunting and recreational shooting.
Wait, there’s more. Sen. Sanders also told South Carolinians that he’s not above abandoning his principals to appeal to the radical base of his supporters. Sen. Sanders voted for the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act in 2005, the law that prevents frivolous lawsuits against the firearms industry for the crimes committed by individuals. This law was in response to gun control groups and activists abusing the legal system to bankrupt gun businesses through continuous litigation for the criminal acts of individuals. It’s akin to suing General Motors or Ford over and over for deaths caused by DUIs. It’s nonsensical and an abuse of the judicial system.
Now, Sen. Sanders added his name to repeal these protections. Buckle up, It’s going to prove to be a bumpy ride.

Long overdue and commonsensical.

“Trump administration launches new unit to strip US citizenship from foreign-born terrorists, criminals,” by Adam Shaw, Fox News, February 26, 2020:
The Trump administration is establishing a new section within the Justice Department to deal with the process of removing citizenship from foreign-born individuals who fraudulently obtained citizenship by failing to disclose past convictions for serious crimes — including terrorism and war crimes.
The section, which will be within the DOJ’s Office of Immigration Litigation, will be dedicated to denaturalizing those who had failed to disclose they had been involved in criminal activity on their N-400 form for naturalization. It requires the government to show that citizenship was obtained illegally or “procured by concealment of a material fact or by willful misrepresentation.”
That form includes questions asking whether an applicant has been involved in genocide and torture among other serious crimes, if they have ever been part of a terrorist or totalitarian organization, if they had been associated with the Nazi government in Germany, and if they have been charged or convicted with a crime or served prison time. Targets for denaturalization are those who have made material breaches of those questions.
“When a terrorist or sex offender becomes a U.S. citizen under false pretenses, it is an affront to our system — and it is especially offensive to those who fall victim to these criminals,” Assistant Attorney General Jody Hunt said. “The new Denaturalization Section will further the Department’s efforts to pursue those who unlawfully obtained citizenship status and ensure that they are held accountable for their fraudulent conduct.”…


Trump DEMOLISHES Dems’ Open Borders Policy as HEALTH THREAT to ALL AMERICANS!!!

President Trump declares war on the Democrats’ attempt to blame him for the spread of the coronavirus by reminding all of us that the Democrats’ policy of open borders is a direct threat to the health of all Americans. We’re going to take a look at Trump’s brilliant political strategy in all of this, and contrast it with the political disaster that the Democrats have created for themselves, and why President Trump will come out on top of all of this better and stronger than ever!

HHS Secretary Azar: 

Number one priority is getting more testing kits from CDC
Dr. John Bergman: 
“I Am Not Afraid of the Coronavirus”
Democrats Demand Open Borders for the Coronavirus
Their only hope for victory is infecting America

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism.
Over 90 Chinese migrants were caught by the Border Patrol trying to enter the United States this year.
According to Brandon Judd, the president of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC), on February 10, three Chinese nationals were apprehended illegally entering Texas with flu-like symptoms, and had to be quarantined. "Luckily they did not have the coronavirus," he said. "But this is a wake-up call."
Border Patrol personnel have been handed respirators and told to isolate the large number of Chinese migrants who are continuing to illegally enter the United States.
According to Todd Bensman of the Middle East Forum, his source in the Border Patrol told him that, “What we cannot ascertain is if they are isolated until they come back negative. A lot of that is 'medical' and some managers treat it like it's personal information. So we are not privy to the results of where they go after."
We know that some of the CDC test kits meant to detect the coronavirus were flawed. It’s possible that migrants carrying the coronavirus have not been properly detected and may be spreading it even now.
Illegal migration from China through the Mexican border rose significantly toward the end of last year, increasing fivefold from October to the end of January, compared to the entire previous fiscal year.
And those are the migrants that the Border Patrol had successfully intercepted. There’s no way to know how many got through. The human smugglers are clever and determined. And anyone who is infected might be desperate enough to try to enter the United States in search of superior medical care.
A few months ago, Border Patrol officers intercepted eleven Chinese migrants at the border hiding inside a washing machine, and a dresser, along with other pieces of furniture inside a moving truck. A month earlier, six Chinese migrants had been caught hiding inside the fake wall of another truck.
And it’s not just by land. In December, a boat tried to smuggle two Chinese nationals into California.
It’s also not just China. As the coronavirus spreads to other countries, outbreaks are popping up in South Korea and Iran. The expansion of the scope of the outbreak means that migrants from more countries pose a potentially deadly risk. The first coronavirus case has just emerged in Latin America.
It’s unlikely that it will be the last.
California is already monitoring 8,400 people for the coronavirus, with 33 known cases, including one that occurred among the general public, resulting in the quarantine of 100 health care workers.
The last thing that the border states need are infected illegal aliens coming through, blending into the population, and spreading the disease to health care workers, and in poor neighborhoods.
But that’s exactly what the Democrats seem to want.
Senator Elizabeth Warren announced that she was introducing a plan to redirect money from the border wall to fighting the coronavirus. Rarely has there been so literal an example of drilling a hole in the boat and then bailing water faster. And while Warren is an extreme case, every Democrat 2020 candidate wants to dismantle border security and enable the rapid entry of migrants into the United States.
That means putting Americans at risk, not just at the border, but also at airports and seaports.
Warren had called for replacing ICE with "something that reflects our values” and infects us with their diseases.  Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and Mayor Bill de Blasio have called for abolishing ICE. Senator Bernie Sanders, as the most radical candidate, wants to abolish ICE, CBP, and stop deportations.
Bernie’s call to abolish the Border Patrol would create open borders for drug cartels, smugglers, murderers, rapists, and any migrants infected with the coronavirus, not to mention other diseases.
Sanders, Steyer, Bloomberg, and Warren all oppose any further border fencing. But Sanders has gone the furthest by essentially calling for an end to immigration enforcement. “Immigration is not a threat to national security,” he insists. The coronavirus once again demonstrates that’s a dangerous delusion.
Imagining a world without borders is also envisioning a world of defenseless nations and peoples. Borders are the immune system of nations. Without an immune system, the body cannot survive. And without borders, a nation cannot exist. Illegal migration is a disease attacking our national body. The Democrats who champion open borders and attack CBP are the disease destroying our immunity.
Border security is the cure.
As nations around the world rally to secure their borders against coronavirus migrants, the Democrats still insist on chanting the mantra of open borders. At the Democrat debate in South Carolina, Senator Amy Klobuchar refused to say that she would close the border to stop the spread of the virus.
None of the CBS moderators asked the candidates about using border security to stop infected aliens.
And none of the Democrats mentioned border security, instead pivoting to calls for more funding. Like Warren, they want to drill a bunch of holes in the boat, and then spend money to bail out the water.
President Trump had asked for $2.5 billion in coronavirus funding. The Democrats want as much as $8.5 billion, with Senator Schumer demanding a $2 billion piggy bank for the states and cities to raid.
Meanwhile those same politicians are determined to starve CBP of the funds it desperately needs. They would rather plow endless billions into an emergency that their own dereliction of duty created than spend a lot less to prevent the spread of the coronavirus to the United States in the first place.
The cynical truth behind this gambit is that funneling money into health organizations builds up the political organizations and infrastructure of the Democrats, while border security is Republican.
The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), which represents NIH personnel, among many others in the gargantuan portfolio of the country's largest federal union, endorsed Hillary Clinton. Meanwhile the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC), which is a subsidiary of the mega-union, endorsed Donald J. Trump. As did the ICE Council.
When replying to AFGE’s questionnaire about overtime pay for ICE and Border Patrol personnel, Senator Elizabeth Warren instead ranted that she would destroy ICE and CPB and focus on stopping counterfeit goods. Democrats, like Warren, care more about protecting fashion brands than stopping a pandemic.
They care more about protecting their political power through open borders than protecting Americans.
Even as the Democrats and their media allies whip up a panic and attempt to blame the coronavirus on President Trump, they continue undermining our front line of defense and our national security.
The Democrats want open borders for drug cartels, human traffickers, and the coronavirus. And if the outbreak and its financial repercussions improves their political prospects, then it’s a win-win situation.
When the coronavirus spreads, when our economy shakes, then the Democrats win.
And that’s how the Democrats became the party of the coronavirus. Their political future is tied to the disease. They’re attacking our immune system because their only hope for victory is infecting America.
“Catastrophic”: Iranian Whistleblower Claims Government Hiding True Number of Coronavirus Victims
Says 17 people died in her hospital in one day alone
SEE: below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
A whistleblower who works at a hospital in Iran claims that authorities are hiding the true scale of the coronavirus outbreak and that the real numbers are “catastrophic.”
Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet highlights the case of an anonymous female employee at Shohadaye Yaftabad Hospital in Tehran who posted an audio file to Telegram in which she claimed that 17 people had already died at her hospital.
“Now I risk my life and leave this voicemail. What I have seen with my own eyes is that the situation is much more catastrophic than our state media says. When I worked at the hospital yesterday, 17 people died of the coronavirus,” she said.
Officials in Iran have confirmed 388 confirmed Covid-19 cases and 34 related deaths. However, at the time of the whistleblower’s warning on Monday, authorities said that just 3 people had died across the entire country.
According to the woman, the true coronavirus situation in Iran is “catastrophic” and 50-60 per cent of people infected are dying.
“One reason for the high Iranian death toll may be that the number of coronas infected is under-reported,” reports Aftonbladet. “In the rest of the world, two percent of those infected are estimated to have died.”
While there is no way to verify the woman’s claims, similar assertions have been made in China with many suggesting that the true scale of the outbreak is being significantly under-reported in order to prevent mass panic.
Islamic Republic is Now Ground Zero for Deadly Coronavirus
Iran’s Vice President for Women and Family Affairs becomes latest victim of COVID-19 pandemic.
SEE: below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
On Thursday, Iran’s Ministry of Health announced that thus far, 26 people infected with the coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, have died and that there were an additional 245 confirmed cases. The latest victim of the disease is Masoumeh Ebtekar, Iran’s Vice President for Women and Family Affairs. In 1979, she was the spokeswoman for radical Islamic fundamentalists who invaded the American embassy in Tehran and took 52 American diplomats and citizens hostage for 444 days. On Tuesday, Iran’s Deputy Health Minister was quarantined due to infection. Several other Iranian parliamentarians have become infected as well.  
Globally, the coronavirus has a fatality rate of between 2 and 3 percent. In Iran, if official figures are to be believed, more than 1 in 10 die from the disease. Clearly, Iranian officials are lying about the extent of the disease and its rapid spread throughout the country. The Islamic Republic has also been the source of dozens of cases outside Iran. Countries including Afghanistan, UAE, Lebanon, Bahrain, Iraq, Kuwait, Oman, Pakistan and even Canada, have all traced infected travelers to Iran.
Radio Farda, citing reports by Canadian researchers, reports that the levels of those infected in Iran is much higher than government officials are willing to admit. According to the researchers, it is statistically possible that as many as 18,000 people are infected in the county. That figure is only expected to grow exponentially given the level of obfuscation by the government and the decrepit state of Iran’s healthcare facilities.
Given the dire state of affairs in Iran, one would think that Iranian authorities would take drastic measures, similar to those undertaken by the Chinese Communist government in Wuhan, to contain the spread of the virus. Like China, Iran is an authoritarian state that routinely deprives its citizens of due process. For example, during a two-week period beginning in late November 2019, the Iranian Basij militia, an auxiliary arm of the Iranians Revolutionary Guard Corps, was responsible for murdering 1,500 peaceful Iranian protestors demanding transparency and accountability. Thousands more were jailed without trial.
Yet shockingly, Iran’s president, Hassan Rouhani, informed members of his cabinet that cities impacted by the coronavirus, like Qom, would not be quarantined. Only individuals with confirmed cases would be quarantined. Even more astounding, authorities have yet to shut a shrine in the city of Qom that attracts millions of Shia pilgrims. The pilgrims often kiss and touch the shrine and it is believed that a number of infections spread in this manner.
Rouhani, and the Iranian theocracy he represents is framing the coronavirus health crisis as an American conspiracy to undermine the regime and negatively impact morale. “We must not let the United States attach a new virus to the coronavirus by stopping our social activities through tremendous fear. This is a conspiracy we see today and you see in foreign propaganda,” Rouhani said at a cabinet meeting. He added, “They are also suffering from coronavirus. Influenza has killed 16,000 people in the United States, but they are not speaking about themselves. Americans better take care of thousands of flu casualties in their own country.”
The Islamic Republic, once a modern, forward-looking nation prior to the 1979 Islamic takeover, is now a third world backwater that sees enemies and conspiracies wherever it turns, and the coronavirus is no exception. Iran's Cyber Police reported that it arrested 24 people for “spreading rumors” about the virus on the internet and warned 118 others that they would be subject to arrest for passing along information. Apparently, in Iran, the only people permitted to disseminate information on the virus are those whose deceit and incompetence led to the outbreak in the first place.
Instead of treating the epidemic as a grave health crisis, the regime is addressing it as coup attempt, provoked and engineered by the “Great Satan.” As a result, the virus continues to run rampant in Iran, infecting common citizens and government officials alike.
The people of Iran have watched as their government isolated itself from the international community by recklessly pursuing a rogue ballistic missile program and weapons of mass destruction. They’ve watched as their government squanders their nation’s wealth on fighting endless proxy wars in Syria, Iraq, Gaza, Lebanon, Afghanistan and Yemen. According to US Treasury under-secretary for terrorism and financial intelligence, Sigal Mandelker, the Lebanese Hezbollah terror group alone receives $700 million in aid from Iran. Hundreds of millions of dollars are squandered elsewhere. This is money that could be used to treat those infected with the coronavirus and prevent its spread.
With its continued mendacity and reckless foreign and domestic policies, which border on the paranoid, Iran has dug its own grave. Now it must deal with the consequences.

“Al Jazeera Spied on American Jews to Make an Anti-Israel Film. Congress Just Got Invited to the Premiere,” by Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, February 26, 2020:
Multiple congressional offices have received an invitation to the screening of a never-before-seen anti-Israel documentary produced by Al Jazeera that relies heavily on footage obtained by an undercover Qatari spy.
The event will feature a screening of The Lobby: USA, a previously unreleased documentary produced by Qatar’s Al Jazeera network, according to a copy of the invitation obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. The documentary never aired because it was revealed that much of the footage was obtained during a 2018 undercover surveillance operation on American Jews and pro-Israel groups in Washington, D.C.
Revelations of the spy effort sent shockwaves through the pro-Israel community—members of which were caught on film purportedly trying to extend Jewish influence in American politics. Concerns over the film’s reliance on undercover footage prompted members of Congress to call for Al Jazeera to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), which requires state-backed actors to disclose their ties to foreign governments.
The documentary will finally see the light of day on Friday at an event for congressional staffers.
Two progressive foreign policy think tanks—the Center for International Policy (CIP) and the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS)—are slated to screen the documentary later this week during an event on “the pro-Israel lobby in the United States,” according to a copy of the invitation addressed to congressional staffers. It is unclear how many offices received invitations.
At the event, a “panel of experts will discuss domestic groups that are working with the government of Israel to stifle critics and Palestinian rights advocacy in the U.S., but have not registered under FARA,” according to the invitation.
The organizers maintain that pro-Israel organizations in the United States should be subject to FARA disclosure laws because of their work to foster an alliance with the Jewish state. Liberal critics of the pro-Israel movement insist these groups are beholden to the state of Israel, thus necessitating FARA disclosure.
Al Jazeera—which is funded and controlled by the state of Qatar, a nation known for funding anti-Israel movements and taking a permissive attitude towards terrorism financing—has not registered as a foreign agent under FARA.
The panel discussion “will be preceded by a screening of a 24-minute segment from the never-shown 2018 Al Jazeera documentary The Lobby: USA on the pro-Israel lobby in the U.S. This four-part documentary never aired following the Qatari government’s decision to ‘postpone’ its release,” the event invitation says.
The panel discussion on the Al Jazeera film will feature several anti-Israel activists, including James Kleinfeld, the individual identified as conducting the 2018 spy operation on the Jewish and pro-Israel communities in the United States. After his identity was discovered, Kleinfeld fled the United States, but has now returned to promote the Al Jazeera documentary….

SAN FRANCISCO — David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), along with his co-worker Sandra Merritt, pleaded not guilty on Friday to criminal counts surrounding an undercover investigation they conducted into Planned Parenthood and its business partners over the extraction, transferal and sale of the body parts of aborted babies. Daleiden and Merritt potentially face up to 10 years behind bars if convicted, but their defense states that the two did “an incredible public service” and should not be punished.
“David is being charged as a criminal for using the same investigative reporting techniques regularly exercised by other journalists,” Daleiden defense attorney Peter Breen, senior counsel at the Illinois-based Thomas More Society, said in a statement.
“These industry practices are often lauded and rewarded, but here in California, Mr. Daleiden is being charged as a criminal and threatened with years in prison for shining his investigative light on the dark secrets of the abortion industry.”
California Attorney General Xavier Becerra charged Daleiden and Merritt in December with:
eight counts of eavesdropping and recording “confidential communication” by secretly taping their discussions,
one count of creating a “deceptive identification document” used for “fraudulent purposes” by registering under a fake business name to conduct their undercover investigation,
and one count of conspiracy to record confidential information by posing as BioMax employees to gain access to abortion-related exhibitions and speak with Planned Parenthood representatives and its business partners.
Daleiden and Merritt pleaded not guilty to nine of the ten counts on Friday, and a demurer was filed for the tenth count, which is similar to requesting a dismissal. Breen notes that the recordings were all made in public restaurants and at public events, and so there was no expectation of privacy in the discussions.
A preliminary hearing was held in September before Judge Christopher Hite, during which time a number of abortionists took the stand to discuss their practices, as well as a fetal remains broker who acknowledged that the body parts of aborted babies were being sold. The sale of “fetal tissue” for profit is illegal under federal law.
Breen is already filing an appeal of the decision to allow the criminal counts against Daleiden and Merritt to move forward in the first place as he believes Hite “didn’t at all address our critical argument that they had clear evidence that violent felonies were occurring inside of Planned Parenthood and otherwise.”
“David and Susan face 10 years — a decade — in San Quentin penitentiary if those felony counts were to be upheld,” he lamented in a video update posted online. “Outrageous. The first time and the only time undercover journalists have been charged with … the illegal taping law [in California].”

As previously reported, Daleiden and Merritt attended abortion industry conferences from 2013 to 2015 under the names Robert Sarkis and Susan Tennenbaum and with the impression that they were representatives of a company they called BioMax Procurement Services. They recorded their conversations as they sought to learn about Planned Parenthood’s abortion practices and harvesting partnerships.
CMP then publicly released video footage of the undercover investigation, showing various Planned Parenthood leaders and representatives of biomedical companies callously discussing extracting unborn children from the womb so that their body parts can be collected and sold for research.
“We’ve been using them for over 10 years, really a long time, [and we] just kind of renegotiated the contract,” Katherine Sheehan, the medical director for Planned Parenthood Pacific Southwest, said of Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR) in one video. “They’re doing the big collections for government-level collections and things like that.”
As previously reported, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has outlined publicly that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had purchased the body parts of aborted babies from ABR for intramural projects to test drug efficacy, and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) similarly purchased organs — specifically livers and thymuses — in seeking a cure for HIV.
Cost per each liver and thymus was $680, but increased in May 2018 to $750. See the documentation here as obtained by Judicial Watch following a lawsuit against HHS.
The government has also issued grants for extramural projects at universities — such as the University of San Francisco — that use the remains of unborn children in testing via “humanized mice.”
“[M]ost of the time, it is not intact,” Parrin Larton of ABR stated in one of the videos recorded by Daleiden. “The abdomen is always ripped open.. … Everything will just get ripped up, you know. Whenever we have a smooth portion of liver, we think that’s good, because most of the time, just the instruments they go in to pull and it’s just whatever presents first.”
Click to enlarge.
In another video, Planned Parenthood Medical Director Deborah Nucatola nonchalantly munches on salad and sips wine as she talks about adjusting the child so as not to crush certain organs due to the demand for the body part.
“I’d say a lot of people want liver. And for that reason, most providers will do this case under ultrasound guidance, so they’ll know where they’re putting their forceps,” she explained. “[Y]ou’re just kind of cognizant where you put your graspers. You try to intentionally go above and below the thorax, so that — you know.”
“We’ve been very good at getting the heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so ‘I’m not gonna crush that part. I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.’”
Another video showed Mary Gatter, the president of Planned Parenthood’s Medical Directors Council, haggling with undercover investigators about the compensation for the fetal organs, laughing, “I want a Lamborghini.” Other footage showed an actual aborted baby being dissected in a dish, with an assistant declaring, “Another boy!” and one video showed an abortionist laughing about how harvesting an intact baby head would be “something to strive for.”
Planned Parenthood and ABR, as well as other business partners, are reportedly under investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice following a referral from Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Charles Grassley, R-Iowa.
“[I]n June of 2014, an ABR technician obtained a 20-week-old fetus at a Planned Parenthood clinic, for which it paid $60,” the Committee outlined in a report. “From that one fetus, ABR sold its brain to one customer for $325, both of its eyes for $325 each ($650 total) to a second customer, a portion of its liver for $325 to a third customer, its thymus for $325 and another portion of its liver for $325 to a fourth customer, and its lung for $325 to a fifth customer.”
In addition to making over $2,200 from just one baby, ABR also allegedly charged shipping and disease screening fees, making over $6,000 from a single child. A technician from ABR would go to Planned Parenthood and personally collect the aborted baby body parts on site the day of the procedures, the committee found.
Planned Parenthood had claimed following the release of Daleiden’s videos, which were first posted online in 2015, that the footage had been deceptively edited, but Daleiden had also publicly released the hours-long recordings in their entirety in addition to his concise video highlights. All the videos may be viewed in their entirety on the Center for Medical Progress YouTube page.
The federal Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals also noted in January 2019 in a case surrounding Texas’ decision to terminate its Medicaid contract with Planned Parenthood that the state Office of the Inspector General (OIG) “submitted a report from a forensic firm concluding that the video was authentic and not deceptively edited. And the plaintiffs (Planned Parenthood) did not identify any particular omission or addition in the video footage.”
“[T]here is no question that the OIG here made factual findings after viewing the videos and related evidence,” outlined Judge Edith Jones, nominated to the bench by then-President Ronald Reagan.
“The OIG further concluded, based on the videos, that the provider plaintiffs at a minimum violated federal standards regarding fetal tissue research and standards of medical ethics by allowing doctors to alter abortion procedures to retrieve tissue for research purposes or allowing the researchers themselves to perform the procedures,” she wrote.
“What Sandra and I both did is no different from what local news sources and local news outlets do every single day here in the state of California when they go undercover and publish undercover hidden camera news stories,” Daleiden, a Roman Catholic who appears to be favorable toward homosexuals, said of his investigation in 2017.
“The only difference is that we went after and we recorded and we exposed the sacred cows of the California political establishment: Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation and their allies and proxies in the abortion industry — the political backers of the organs of power in the state of California,” he stated.
In addition to the criminal charges, Daliden and Merritt are facing several civil lawsuits. In November, a jury awarded Planned Parenthood over $2 million after finding that Daleiden and CMP caused “substantial harm” to the organization through the expose’ videos.
“Planned Parenthood wants a permanent injunction against David Daleiden from ever going undercover against Planned Parenthood — for the rest of his life,” Breen explained.
The National Abortion Federation (NAF) has also obtained an injunction preventing Daleiden from releasing any more videos he recorded undercover at the organization’s conferences. One video Daleiden released in defiance of the injunction featured clips of various Planned Parenthood officials and other abortion advocates making nonchalant statements about the abortion process, including that the baby’s eyeballs fell into their lap or that they had to tear off a leg to avoid technically performing a partial-birth abortion.
“Really high stakes here, both for the public, for the pro-life movement [and] just for the future of the country,” Breen said.

Turkey to FLOOD Europe with Migrants, Awakening SUPPORT for the Nationalist Populist Right!!!


republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research 
Turkey has announced it is suspending border controls for foreign migrants hoping to cross into Europe, according to reports.
Millions of migrants currently being ‘hosted’ in Turkey are now invited to journey onwards to the European Union.
“We have decided, effectively immediately, not to stop Syrian refugees from reaching Europe by land or sea,” an unnamed Turkish official told Reuters.
“All refugees, including Syrians, are now welcome to cross into the European Union.”
The move reportedly comes in retaliation for an airstrike by Russian-backed Syrian forces that killed 33 Turkish soldiers in Idlib.
“In anticipation of the imminent arrival of refugees from Idlib, Turkish police, coastguard and border security officials have been ordered to stand down on refugees’ land and sea crossings towards Europe,” Reuters reports, citing the Turkish official.
Videos and photos purporting to show masses of mostly-male migrants moving towards Turkey's western border and into Europe have flooded social media.
Turkey has been threatening to "open the gates" to Europe and unleash many of the roughly 3.7 million 'refugees' being held there, many of whom arrived since the 2016 migrant crisis.

Senate Democrats have blocked a bill by Republicans that would stop infanticide and require medical care and treatment for babies born alive after failed abortions, despite the bill’s support among even those who classify themselves as pro-abortion.
The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act would require doctors to provide medical care for infants who survive attempted abortions. Anyone who violates the act would be subject to a fine or imprisonment up to five years. The bill is one of two abortion-related bills that were voted on in the Senate on Tuesday.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell filed for a procedural motion earlier this month that would set up votes on the Pain Capable Unborn Child Act and Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act after the Senate’s Presidents’ Day recess. The votes required a 60-vote threshold to end Democratic filibuster, but both votes fell short. The Senate voted 56-41 on the anti-infanticide bill, with just three Democrats — Doug Jones of Alabama, Bob Casey of Pennsylvania, and Joe Manchin of West Virginia — breaking from their party to vote in support of the legislation, CNN reports.
With Republicans holding just 53 seats in the Senate, the votes were expected to fail, but Republicans are hopeful they will serve to highlight the radicalism of the Democrats, particularly of the Democratic presidential candidates — Senators Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Amy Klobuchar — who have now been forced to go on record on the issues.
“Having these two votes come back to back absolutely puts pro-abortion Democrats on the defense,” said Mallory Quigley, spokeswoman for Susan B. Anthony List, the Washington Examiner reports. “We are asking them to support popular legislation, compassionate legislation to save babies and to stop late-term abortion. If they can’t do that, can they then take a stand for born children who have survived abortions?”
National polling has shown a large majority of Americans, including those who describe themselves as pro-choice, oppose infanticide, as well as late-term abortions. The Democratic filibuster of the bills underscores just how far removed they are from their constituents.
Predictably, pro-abortion advocates such as Jacqueline Ayers, Planned Parenthood’s vice president of government relations and public policy, contend the Born-Alive bill would somehow target abortion access. She said in a statement Monday that “these bills push misinformation meant to end access to abortion, and serve no other purpose than to shame patients and deny people the ability to make the best medical decisions for themselves and their families.”
But Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska, the Republican sponsor of the bill, pushed back on that sentiment, noting the bill has nothing to do with abortion access. Instead, he asserted the bill was about “making sure that every newborn baby has a fighting chance — whether she’s born in a labor and delivery ward or whether she’s born in an abortion clinic.”
Senator Sasse sought to bring the issue underlying the bill to the forefront of the debate: “I urge my colleagues to picture a baby that’s already been born, that’s outside the womb gasping for air. That’s the only thing that today’s vote is actually about. We’re talking about babies that have already been born. Nothing in this bill touches abortion access.”
And while the Democrats claim the Born-Alive bill is unnecessary, statistics and personal testimonies prove otherwise.
During a recent congressional hearing titled “The Infant Patient: Ensuring Appropriate Medical Care for Children Born Alive,” for example, Family Research Council staffer Patricia Mosley told the Senate that existing law is failing to protect babies born alive during botched abortions.
“There have been no cases involving prosecutions under the [2002] Born-Alive Infants Protection Act that we know of. Why? Because there is currently no federal criminal statute specifically prohibiting taking the lives of born-alive infants,” she said.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that between 2003 and 2014, at least 143 babies were born after botched abortions and lived anywhere from minutes to days. The CDC admits that number could be significantly understated, a likely possibility according to Family Research Council’s Arina Grossu, who observed, “[Kermit] Gosnell is only one abortionist who was responsible for ‘hundreds of snippings’ of born-alive babies, yet he did not report even one.” She added, “His numbers alone exceed the ‘definitive’ numbers of the CDC.”
The American Center for Law and Justice believes the number could be as high as 362 babies born alive between 2001 and 2010.
The numbers are particularly hard to determine, as most states do not require such data to be maintained.
Registered nurse Jill Stanek provided personal testimony about her experience with infants born alive during failed abortions during 2019 congressional testimony on the Born Alive bill. Her disturbing testimony revealed the protocol at the hospital at which she worked was to leave the infants in a “soiled utility room” to die.

The New York Times has added another lawsuit to the workload of its legal team.
In addition to fighting a defamation claim from former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, the Times must defend itself from the Trump campaign, which filed a defamation lawsuit yesterday.
The Times and former editor Max Frankel smeared the campaign in an opinion piece, the lawsuit alleges, which said the campaign hatched a “deal” with the Russian government in 2016 to defeat the Times’s preferred candidate, Hillary Clinton.
The Times knew Frankel’s absurd claim was false, the lawsuit alleges, because the Times itself debunked it in multiple stories.
Whether the campaign will prevail is another. A public figure such as the campaign rarely succeeds in such a lawsuit.
The Lawsuit
The Times’s latest legal trouble began on March 27 last year, the day it published Frankel’s hit piece, “The Real Trump-Russia Quid Pro Quo.”
Wrote Frankel, who calls himself a “Democrat with a vengeance”:
There was no need for detailed electoral collusion between the Trump campaign and Vladimir Putin’s oligarchy because they had an overarching deal: the quid of help in the campaign against Hillary Clinton for the quo of a new pro-Russian foreign policy, starting with relief from the Obama administration’s burdensome economic sanctions. The Trumpites knew about the quid and held out the prospect of the quo.
Yet Frankel’s piece “does not allege or refer to any proof of its claims of a ‘quid pro quo’ or ‘deal’ between the Campaign and Russia,” the lawsuit alleges, but instead “selectively” included “previously-reported contacts between a Russian lawyer and persons connected with the Campaign.” Previous reporting in the Times showed “that the meetings and contacts ... did not result in any quid pro quo or deal.”
The report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of the collusion hoax showed the story to be false weeks after the story was published, but the Times knew that long before Frankel’s smear appeared, the lawsuit alleges.
Thus, the lawsuit alleges, the Times’s “own reporting, had already confirmed what Robert Mueller would eventually conclude: that there was no ‘deal’ or ‘quid pro quo’ between the Campaign and Russia. The Times and its writer, Mr. Frankel, consciously disregarded all such information.” That reporting appeared in three stories, two of them published nearly two years before Frankel went off half-cocked.
As well, the lawsuit alleges, the Times “decided to publish the Defamatory Article when it did, in advance of the Mueller Report, knowing that the Mueller Report was likely to exonerate the Campaign from allegations of collusion with Russia regarding the 2016 election”:
Once the Mueller Report was released, The Times knew that any claims of conspiracy would not be credible. Thus, by publishing the Defamatory Article in March 2019, The Times sought to damage the Campaign before the Mueller Report would be released debunking the conspiracy claims.
The Times published Frankel’s claims because of its “systematic pattern of bias against the Campaign, designed to maliciously interfere with and damage its reputation and seek to cause the organization to fail,” the lawsuit alleges.
If true, the campaign has a case for malice and reckless disregard of the truth, proof of which is required for a public figure to successfully sue.
Can the Campaign Win? “A publisher cannot be held liable for commentary based on public facts,” a lawyer for the American Civil Liberties Union told the Times.
Frankel’s claim, of course, was not a “fact,” but a falsehood, but the campaign must still prove the newspaper “knew it was false before publishing, or had actual suspicion of falsity and went ahead anyway,” which is “virtually impossible,” a law professor told the Times. The U.S. Supreme Court invented that standard in 1964’s New York Times vs. Sullivan decision.
The lawsuit’s allegations would seem self-evidently true given that the Times’s own reporting showed Frankel’s factual claim to be false, but again, proving that is problematic.
The campaign’s attorney is Charles Harder, the man who put Gawker out of business on behalf of professional wrestler Hulk Hogan, and, more importantly, defeated Michael Avenatti, the crooked lawyer convicted of extortion, when he sued Trump for defamation on behalf of porn queen Stormy Daniels.
Palin sued the Times over an editorial, subsequently corrected, that linked her to the shooting of Representative Gabrielle Giffords.


(Friday Church News Notes, August 24, 2018,, 866-295-4143) – 

The Roman Catholic diocese of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, has filed for bankruptcy in the face of millions of dollars in liabilities over child sex abuse by priests. The diocese has settled 111 cases, but there are an estimated 200 more. It claims liabilities of between $50 million and $100 million, with assets of less than $10 million. The announcement comes after the disclosure that the diocese paid $12 million to people abused as children. In 2018, a grand jury concluded that more than 1,000 children were abused by Roman Catholic priests in six Pennsylvania dioceses alone over the last several decades. The report, the product of a two-year investigation, identified 300 abusing priests and lay “brothers” and found evidence of a systematic cover-up by senior church leaders in Pennsylvania and at the Vatican in Rome (“Report Identifies More Than 1,000,” Associated Press, Aug. 14, 2018). At a news conference, Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro said, “The cover-up was sophisticated. And all the while, shockingly, church leadership kept records of the abuse and the cover-up. These documents, from the dioceses’ own ‘Secret Archives,’ formed the backbone of this investigation.” The six dioceses represent only half of the Catholic churches in Pennsylvania. Most of the victims were boys. The Roman Catholic Church in America has paid over $2 billion to settle lawsuits against immoral priests. The Bishop Accountability organization said that more than 4,000 priests have been accused of abusing children (“US Church to Pay 12.6 Million,” AFP, Aug. 11, 2008). A conservative Catholic organization documented this wretched business in the fall/winter 2002 issue of the magazine Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam, observing: “… the overwhelming majority of sexual abuse cases in the Catholic Church–about 90%–involve homosexual priests preying on teenage boys. The major media and the U.S. culture at large want to deny or spin the homosexual factor out of the scandal.” So far, at least 22 Catholic dioceses and religious orders in the U.S. have filed for bankruptcy.

Tech industry bros and trust-fund hipsters are buying the nomination for Bernie.
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research 
Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism.
In Los Angeles, it’s not unusual to see a Beemer streak by with a Bernie 2020 sticker on the back bumper. There’s no such thing as a poor socialist and Bernie’s backers tend to have lots of cash.
While Bernie Sanders accuses Bloomberg of trying to buy his way to the nomination, the socialist bought his surge with $50 million in spending. He raised $25 million just in January. There’s more buying to do.
And while he boasts of backing from small donors, the wealth of his donors is anything but small.
Google, Amazon, and Microsoft. Their employees are three of the top 4 Bernie donors. Apple is in fifth place. These dot coms are not exactly organizations known to employ members of the proletariat. Google software engineers have sent thousands of dollars, individually, to Bernie.
Google’s senior engineers, like the ones who have backed Bernie, make $250,000 a year.
Geographically, Bernie's top dollar zip code is 94110 in San Francisco. The average household income in this part of the Mission District, specifically the Inner Mission, the Bernal Heights area, is $166,302. The median home value is around $1.5 million and the median rent is almost $5,000 a month.
There are no poor socialists in what was dubbed as “the hottest neighborhood in San Francisco.”
This was the area that Salon founder David Talbot blasted as the "hottest zip code in the country" overrun by "Silicon Valley movers and shakers" in "new-model Teslas, BMWs and Uber limousines". It’s only fitting that it should also be the spigot through which so much of Bernie’s tech bros dollars flow.
The second top dollar Bernie zip code in San Francisco, 94117 or Haight-Ashbury, seems like a better fit for Bernie. But the Summer of Love has long since given way to the Winter of Trust Fund Hipsters in the Haight where the average income is $201,503 and average home values top $1.6 million.
The media has made much of Bernie’s flow of donations from Brooklyn. But the money isn’t coming from the working-class Brooklynites of Bernie’s old neighborhood, but the gentrifying areas of the borough. 11215 or Park Slope is the second biggest top dollar zip code of Bernie donors.
The neighborhood, formerly urban, known as the home of Mayor Bill de Blasio, and the Park Slope Food Co-Op and its anti-Semitic push to boycott Israel, is filled with renovated brownstones filled with wealthy hipsters. It’s a place where a three-bedroom apartment can go for $2.9 million.
To New Yorkers, Park Slope has become a curse word embodying everything wrong with the new elite.
In third place on Bernie’s donor list is 10025 or the Upper West Side of Manhattan. With an average rental price of $4,695, it’s not exactly an inexpensive place to live. The UWS is the 8th richest neighborhood with a $190,281 mean household income. And this is where Bernie’s cash comes from.
11238 or Prospect Heights, in fourth place, is a newly gentrified neighborhood in Brooklyn where the median sales price passed $1 million, and you can expect to spend $800,000 for a one-bedroom co-op. The formerly urban neighborhood has been colonized by wealthy hipsters from Park Slope, and much of what goes for Park Slope also goes for Prospect Heights. They’re the gentrifiers funding Bernie Sanders.
In fifth place is 98103, the Seattle neighborhood of Wallingford. With an average household income of $124,504, the University of Washington neighborhood with its $800,000 homes isn’t working class. Among the cheapest housing options is a $400,000 one-bedroom condo that’s a mere 757 square feet. The area is so expensive because it’s home to tech employees, including Microsoft engineers.
Microsoft employees are among Bernie’s top dollar donors.
And in seventh place is 90026. The Echo Park neighborhood in Los Angeles is a hipster haven which boasts the most expensive pizza in the city where the median price for housing is $813,000, and rents can hit $6,700 a month. Like Park Slope and Haight-Ashbury, Echo Park is full of wealthy hipsters.
That’s Bernie’s core demographic.
In eight place is the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago at zip code 60647. Logan Square is among the most expensive neighborhoods in the Windy City. A condo will set you back over half a million dollars. The rush got so bad that a garage transformed into a home was going for $2.85 million. With its hipster bars and a farmers market, it’s the perfect area for Bernie’s upscale and trendy base.
Ninth and tenth on the list of Bernie’s money neighborhoods are two expensive Manhattan areas.
10003, Union Square and Greenwich Village in downtown Manhattan, is home to NYU, once a hive of angry radicals, now stuffed full of luxury co-ops with wealthy radicals, where condos cost millions of dollars. Greenwich Village has been listed as the ninth most expensive neighborhood in New York City. So, it’s only fitting that it’s the ninth on the list of areas funding the Sanders 2020 presidential campaign.
In tenth place is 10011 or Chelsea and the West Village of Manhattan. It’s also the single most expensive zip code in New York City. Not only is it the most expensive area in New York, but it’s the 23rd most expensive area in the country with a median sale price approaching $2 million. And with average monthly rents of over $4,000, it’s the 19th most expensive rental area in the entire United States.
It’s also home to New York’s Silicon Alley, the city’s tech industry ghetto of dot com and fintech startups.
What do Bernie’s top donor zip codes have in common? Beyond wealth, Bernie’s cash flow is coming from a handful of very blue cities, almost all of them in California and New York City. Only two of the top ten zip codes are located outside San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York City. That alone conveys the insular and unrepresentative nature of Bernie’s funding base compared to the rest of the country.
Bernie’s campaign is powered by the very concentrations of power and wealth that he condemns.
The unrepresentative nature of Bernie’s backers isn’t just a matter of geography, but of culture. Some of Bernie’s top dollar zip codes overlap with the tech industry. His candidacy represents another example of how the tech industry has not only distorted our economy, but also warped our politics.
Much of Bernie’s money comes from hipster hubs where wealthy young white people in major urban areas have made old neighborhoods, including Bernie’s Brooklyn, unaffordable to the working class and middle-class people who once used to live there. Bernie’s donors, especially in places like Prospect Heights and Echo Park have also played a significant role in displacing minorities and the poor.
Follow Bernie’s money and it’s easy to see his campaign for the hypocritical farce that it is.
Tech industry bros and trust fund hipsters are buying the nomination for Bernie, while displacing minority candidates, the way they bought up brownstones in Brooklyn and displaced black people.
He’s the candidate of class warfare, not on behalf of the poor, but of young wealthy people seeking more power and influence at the expense of the more established wealth of an older generation. It’s tech industry bros warring for influence with fossil fuel titans, not for the poor, but for themselves.
Bernie’s base is much less than 1%. Call it the 0.001%. A wealthy and influential young lefty elite with disproportionate influence over the internet is setting the nation’s agenda using digital media, tech dominance, and the Weekend at Bernie’s campaign of a senile socialist who barely knows where he is and won’t release his medical records after a heart attack because they will show he’s barely there.
 "Not me. Us."
That’s Bernie’s slogan. It’s true, just not how people are meant to perceive it. Bernie is little more than a puppet of the campaign pros who made him a household name in 2016 and are trying to make him more than that now. The “Us” are not Americans or even Democrats. It’s the elites of these zip codes.
0.001% of the country is using a confused elderly socialist as a proxy for imposing their will on America.
The 2020 election will be a test of wills between Americans and the 0.001% living in Park Slope, Echo Park, the Mission District, and Haight-Ashbury. After eight years of hipster rule under Obama, is the country ready to bow it heads and let a handful of wealthy young radicals run their lives again?

Whenever this kind of thing comes up, there is no discussion of what the Qur’an actually says. It calls for warfare against and the subjugation of unbelievers, second-class status for women, hatred of Jews, and more. So a case can be made that this was not the best course of action for Paterson officials to take. At very least, a public discussion should take place. The idea that one cannot even raise questions about the wisdom of oath-taking on the Qur’an is in line with the Left’s sinister and increasingly open authoritarianism, but it is not in line with the American principle of free inquiry.
“First Muslim Police Chief in US City Sworn in with Hand on Quran,” by Safaa Kasraoui, Morocco World News, February 16, 2020 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
Rabat – US has appointed a Muslim police chief for the city of Paterson, New Jersey, earlier this month.
Ibrahim “Mike” Baycora is the city of Paterson’s first Turkish-American and Muslim police chief, Anadolu Agency reported.
A video shows the security personnel putting his left hand on Quran to swear in during a ceremony at city hall has gone viral.
The 60-year old chief has been serving at Paterson’s police department for over three decades.
Proud of the promotion, Baycora said he considers Paterson as his home “for the better part of a half a century.”
“Paterson has been in my blood my whole life, and now to be its police chief after a 32-year career — what an honor!”
He said he does not think that his religio [sic] will make a difference….

So what did Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders do after days of criticism for his kind words about Cuban communist tyrant Fidel Castro, whose mass murders by firing squad were so frequent that vultures gathered at the sound of the gunfire?
He raised the bet and said the same thing in Tuesday’s debate on CBS. And the day before, he added Red China to the list of countries to be admired for their strides in combating human misery.
Understandably, Democrats are in full panic mode over the thought of Sanders in a contest against President Trump because Americans will reject the Democrat candidate’s pie-in-the-sky socialist programs that will bankrupt the country.
Now, they must contend with his defense of communist mass murderers.
The Latest Americans heard Sanders’ latest defense of Castro’s dictatorship last night.
“Of course you have a dictatorship in Cuba,” Sanders confessed. But “what I said is what Barack Obama said.... That Cuba made progress on education.”
The crowd booed.
“Really?! Really?!” Sanders harrumphed.
“What Barack Obama said is they made great progress on education and health care,” the elderly Bolshevik continued. “Occasionally, it might be a good idea to be honest about American foreign policy” because the U.S. government has overthrown governments “all over the world.”
But “when dictatorships, whether it is the Chinese or the Cubans, do something good,” he added, “you acknowledge that, but you don’t have to trade love letters to them.”
The Cuba controversy began when CBS’ 60 Minutes aired Sanders’ comments about Castro. Said Sanders:
We’re very opposed to the authoritarian nature of Cuba, but, you know, it’s unfair to simply say everything is bad, you know? When Fidel Castro came into office, you know what he did? He had a massive literacy program. Is that a bad thing? Even though Fidel Castro did it?
The comment didn't go over well.
Tweeted Michael Bloomberg, “Fidel Castro left a dark legacy of forced labor camps, religious repression, widespread poverty, firing squads, and the murder of thousands of his own people. But sure, Bernie, let’s talk about his literacy program.”
The next night at CNN’s Town Hall, Sanders repeated his praise of the Cuban mass murderer.
When Fidel Castro first came to power ... you know what he did? He initiated a major literacy program. There was a lot of folks in Cuba at that point who were illiterate. And he formed a literacy brigade. He went out and they helped people learn to read and write. You know what, I think teaching people to read and write is a good thing.
After bragging that he opposed dictatorships everywhere, he added kudos for the Chinese Reds:
I happen to believe in democracy, not authoritarianism. But you know, you can take China as another example. China is an authoritarian country becoming more and more authoritarian. But can anyone deny, I mean the facts are clear, that they have taken more people out of extreme poverty than any country in history. Do I get criticized because I say that? That’s the truth. So that is a fact. End of discussion.
Some Chinese might say 65 million dead thanks to Mao’s communist tyranny is the “end of the discussion,” but anyway, Sanders went on.
“Truth is truth,” he insisted when moderator Chris Cuomo observed that Sanders’ fellow party members believe Castro should never be praised.
One of them was Pete Buttigieg: “Why are we spotlighting the literacy programs of a brutal dictator, instead of being unambiguous in our condemnation about the way he has treated his own people?” he asked.
Kiss Florida Goodbye? No wonder Democrats are scared. They think praising Castro might help reelect Donald Trump.
María Teresa Kumar, chief of Voto Latino, said the party will lose Florida if Sanders wins the nomination.
“You can kiss Florida goodbye,” she said on MSNBC. “Floridians — Latinos that have fled socialism, they have fled and they are in Florida, and they have sensibilities that are different from the rest of the Latino community.”
Representative Donna Shalala, who represents Florida’s 27th district, said likewise.
“I’m hoping that in the future, Senator Sanders will take time to speak to some of my constituents before he decides to sing the praises of a murderous tyrant like Fidel Castro,” she tweeted.
As The New American reported last week, party veterans who remember what happened when the party chose a hard-left candidate in 1972 believe another disaster is forthcoming if Sanders becomes the nominee.



US working ‘aggressively’ to mitigate coronavirus in America: Alex Azar

U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Resources Alex Azar says our country is prepared to handle the coronavirus if it spreads.


VP Pence has meeting with HHS

The coroner’s office of the Amador County Sheriff’s Department in California has done a near 180-degree turnaround on the death of Department of Homeland Security whistleblower Philip Haney. After initially stating Haney’s death appeared to be “self-inflicted,” the department has subsequently stated that news reports attributing his death to suicide were dispensing “misinformation.” It said further that the sheriff’s office is “currently in the beginning phase of our investigation and any final determination as to the cause and manner of Mr. Haney’s death would be extremely premature and inappropriate.”

Haney was found dead of a gunshot wound on the morning of Friday, February 21, California. The author of See Something, Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government's Submission to Jihad, Haney was an outspoken critic of the Obama administration’s systematic destruction of crucial data in the DHS database concerning Islamist terrorist organizations and hundreds of individuals in the United States involved in Islamic radicalism. This scrubbing of the data, he charged, greatly crippled the ability of intelligence and law enforcement to protect America, denying them information that “could have prevented subsequent domestic Islamist attacks.” Haney, a founding member of the Department of Homeland Security following the 9/11 terror attacks, testified before the U.S. Senate, and appeared on numerous radio, television, and Internet programs. 
(A C-SPAN video of his 2016 Senate testimony on terrorism and violent extremism can be viewed here.)
Relatives, friends, and colleagues were quick to voice doubt about the initial finding that the cause of Haney’s death was a “self-inflicted” gunshot, and began posting social-media statements challenging the rush to designate his death as a suicide. This writer reached out to a number of friends and colleagues who had worked with him and spoken with him recently, including Trevor Loudon, Brannon Howse, Representative Matt Shea, Clare Lopez, Kip Webster, and others. 
The key points that were reiterated by one person after another were that:
1) Phil Haney was a devout Christian who considered suicide a sin, and therefore forbidden;
2) He was happy and upbeat, making plans for his forthcoming book and his book-speaking tours;
3) After grieving for his wife, who died of cancer, he had found love again and was looking forward to an upcoming marriage to his fiancé;
4) He had stated to many people that if he is ever found dead of a supposed “suicide” to “never believe it for a minute”;
5) He was looking forward to returning to work in the DHS under President Trump;
6) He said he has massive digitally archived files from DHS with damning evidence;
7) He stated that his new book would be naming names and would blow the lid off the ongoing corruption in the DHS and the intelligence community;
8) There are many Deep State operatives of the “DC swamp” — both active and retired — who would have motive for stopping him.
One of the first persons The New American talked to about Haney’s death is Brannon Howse, one of Haney’s closest friends and colleagues. Haney had appeared as a guest on Howse’s radio and television programs and conferences many times and had launched his own program, National Security Meltdown, on Howse’s World View Weekend TV (WVWTV). According to Howse, Haney was planning to use National Security Meltdown as the title for his new book. On February 24, Howse posted clips of Haney from his documentary Sabotage, and asked in the title of the posting, “Is This Why Deep State Was Afraid of Phil Haney?”
When this writer asked Howse if he believed that Phil Haney had committed suicide, he immediately responded, “Nobody that knows him believes it.”
“When I talked to him two weeks ago he was excited, happy,” said Howse. “He was happy about his new fiancé, his upcoming wedding, he was taking bookings for speaking engagements, he was looking forward to the release of his book, to filming more TV shows, and to a planned trip to Israel. This was not a man contemplating suicide. And he had told me, as he had told others, that if he were ever murdered it would be made to look like a suicide.”
Howse says he was tipped off about the death by a mutual friend, Reverend Brandon Halthaus, Haney’s pastor, who was one of the first to know that Haney had died. Howse immediately called the Amador County Sheriff’s Department Friday evening, before any news accounts had been published. “I asked them, ‘Do you know who this man [Haney] is,” he recounted. “I told them, ‘He has many friends and enemies in high places and has received many threats. If you put it out that this is a suicide you better be able to prove it because he has many friends in government, in intelligence, in law enforcement and many friends with media platforms that are going to be all over this.’ And I strongly emphasized that they should not rush to label this a suicide before proper forensics had been done.”
What was the response? The department spokesman said they were currently working on a statement and curtly dismissed Howse’s concerns with the comment, “We’re professionals!” Howse requested that the department send him an e-mail of any press statement concerning Haney’s death as soon as one was available. “Within an hour they e-mailed me the press release stating it appeared to be a ‘self-inflicted gunshot wound,’ which to me says suicide, since it is even more unlikely that he would have accidentally shot himself.”
Below is the full text of the Amador County Sheriff-Coroner Office’s statement of Friday, February 21 (which is no longer on the county’s website):
On February 21, 2020 at approximately 1012 hours, deputies and detectives responded to the area of Highway 124 and Highway 16 in Plymouth to the report of a male subject on the ground with a gunshot wound. Upon their arrival, they located and identified 66 year old Philip Haney, who was deceased and appeared to have suffered a single, self-inflicted gunshot wound. A firearm was located next to Haney and his vehicle. This investigation is active and ongoing. No further details will be released at this time.
However, after a weekend of being besieged by members of the public and alternative media journalists, the coroner’s office changed its tune. On Monday, February 24, Amador County Sheriff Martin A. Ryan, who also doubles as coroner, issued a new press release indicating the Haney death is not now an open-and-shut “self-inflicted” case, but is an investigation that “is still active and will be ongoing.” The press statement says Haney was found deceased “in a park and ride open area adjacent to State Highway 16 near State Highway 124 ... less than three miles from where he was living,” in a Plymouth, California, RV park.
"Unfortunately, there was misinformation immediately being put out that we have determined Mr. Haney’s death to be a suicide. That is not the case," Ryan’s statement says. According to the release, a forensic autopsy will be performed by pathologists from the Sacramento County Coroner's Office, and the FBI has been asked to assist. "We are currently in possession of his vehicle, the firearm located at the scene, and his RV and we will be requesting evidence processing assistance from the FBI on those items as well," the press release states. “No determination will be made until all evidence is examined and analyzed," it continues.
In a second interview subsequent to the revised release, Brannon Howse told The New American that this abrupt about-face by the sheriff-coroner was almost certainly the result of public pressure, as well as “high-level pressure” from a number of people in government who recognized Haney’s value to national security. “What was so incredible,” he says, “was that he says ‘unfortunately, there was misinformation,’ as if someone other than he had put it out! If there was misinformation, it’s because the sheriff-coroner office put it out!”
Author-researcher and national security expert Trevor Loudon has worked closely with Phil Haney, and featured interviews with Haney in his documentary, The Enemies Within. While saying he doesn’t categorically reject the suicide verdict as a possibility, Loudon (who has written articles for this magazine) told The New American that there are several factors that are hard to overcome in order to support that finding in Haney’s case: “First of all, he’s a very devout Christian and would know that suicide is wrong; secondly, he told many people that if he ever turns up a dead, don’t believe it’s a ‘suicide’; third, when I talked with him a month ago, he was happy and upbeat, which is what everyone else close to him reports; and fourth, he was an expert in firearms, making it highly unlikely he would have accidentally shot himself; and fifth, if he wanted to commit suicide, it's unlikely he would have shot himself in the chest.”
Washington State Representative Matt Shea, who hosts a radio show on the American Christian Network (CAN) out of Spokane, has featured Haney as a guest and was scheduling a speaking tour of the Pacific Northwest with Haney for this coming April. “I had him on my program by phone three weeks ago,” he told The New American. “After the show, we prayed together and he was very happy, looking forward to getting married, looking forward to our ‘Reach Out Northwest’ speaking tour together.... I can’t believe that he would ever commit suicide.”
Kip Webster, a professional field coordinator for The John Birch Society, sponsored Haney for speaking engagements in 2018 in Connecticut and New Jersey. He told this writer that Haney, a member of the Society, was “a very impressive man, extremely intelligent and obviously very brave,” because he not only put his career on the line but also risked his life with the terrorists and high-level government types he was exposing. “We played phone tag a couple weeks ago but didn’t connect,” he said, “But I had no indication he was depressed, suicidal, or anything out of the ordinary.”
This seems to be the response from virtually everybody who knew him, including members of his family. “No one in the family believes this is a suicide,” Judith Haney, Phil’s stepmother, told True Pundit. “I mean he was enjoying doing talk radio and was working on another book and was excited about that,” she said. “With his history with the government and everything, it is very, very suspicious but with this kind of situation we realize we may never know the truth about what happened. That’s something we all know and live with but it is still early.”
Many others who knew Haney have weighed in on the matter to express suspicion or disbelief concerning the instant suicide verdict, including:
Leo Hohmann, journalist, author, blogger;
Sara A. Carter, investigative journalist and Fox News commentator;
Paul Sperry, investigative journalist, author of Infiltration;
Clare Lopez, former CIA operations officer;
Brigitte Gabriel, survivor of terrorism, Islamic terrorism expert;
David Baldovin, former FBI agent;
John Guandolo, author, speaker, and former FBI counterterrorism expert;
Jan Markell, author, radio show host, speaker;
Shahram Hadian, Christian pastor, former Muslim, and former police officer;
Pastor Greg Young, radio show host; and
Tom Trento, radio talk-show host.
Where’s Phil Haney’s Data?
Of great concern to many of Haney’s friends and admirers is the fate of his vast trove of data, as well as the status of his much-anticipated forthcoming book. On February 22, Kerry Picket of the Washington Examiner reported that Haney had sent the Examiner a text on November 11, 2019 concerning plans for his new book and speaking tours in the months ahead. "I have a severely hyper-organized archive of everything that's happened since See Something, Say Nothing (SSSN) was published in May of 2016,” Haney’s text said. “The National Security Meltdown sequel will pick up right where SSSN left off. My intention is to have it ready by early-to mid-Spring of 2020 (just before the political sound wave hits), then ride that wave all the way to the Nov. elections."
Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) made reference to Haney’s archive “insurance” in a February 23 tweet, in which he also discounted the early reports of suicide: “Phil Haney was a friend & patriot. He was a target because of all he knew of Islamic terrorist coverups. He insured his life by archiving data that incriminated the highest levels of the Obama administration. Phil Haney didn’t kill himself. RIP, Phil.”
Several of Haney’s friends told this reporter they are confident that he got copies of his documents and hard drives to key members of Congress and other friends who will make sure that his information will be put to good use. However, the death of Phil Haney leaves a tragic hole that will be difficult to fill in any future attempts to bring the criminals of the Deep State to Justice.

The upcoming film “The Eternals”, based on the fictional characters depicted in Marvel Comics books, will include a homosexual superhero and his “spouse,” who will kiss on screen, the actor who plays his partner has revealed.
“I just shot a Marvel film with the first openly gay superhero: ‘The Eternals.’ I’m married to the gay superhero Phastos, played by Atlanta’s Brian Tyree Henry, and we represent a gay family and have a child,” actor Haaz Sleiman told NewNowNext.
When asked if there would be kissing in the film, he replied, “Oh yeah, absolutely, and it’s a beautiful, very moving kiss. Everyone cried on set.”
“For me, it’s very important to show how loving and beautiful a queer family can be,” Sleiman added. “Henry is such a tremendous actor and brought so much beauty into this part, and at one point I saw a child in his eyes, and I think it’s important for the world to be reminded that we in the queer community were all children at one point. We forget that because we’re always depicted as sexual or rebellious. We forget to connect on that human part.”
The film is scheduled to open in theaters in November and will be distributed by Walt Disney Studios.
Sleiman, who was raised Muslim but now simply identifies as “spiritual,” had previously played Jesus in the 2015 National Geographic film based on the Bill O’Reilly book “Killing Jesus.” He told reporters at that time that the role made him less judgmental of others as he came to view Jesus as inclusive.
“[H]ow could you not fall in love with Jesus and what He stood for? It’s that simple for me. It’s like one of the most beautiful things that you can apply to your life. And I’m still trying to, cause it’s not easy,” he said, according to CBN News. “Love your enemy. Judge not so that you not be judged. Forgive them so that you [can] be forgiven. If you do that, it’s freedom and it’s the truth. For me, it is at least.”
“I think what was magnificent about this story and Him, and how He handled it, was that He really saw the bigger picture and the truth of things. He was not caught up in the games that were being played. He didn’t judge the games, because He didn’t judge humanity,” Sleiman claimed. “He actually saw beauty in all of it. He saw even beauty in the chaos.”
“He had only love for the people, even if they were the ones who were acting out of ignorance or because they couldn’t see. … Jesus saw the truth. He was in that place of knowing the truth. He also came from a place of love and not judgment, even with those who came at Him and treated Him badly.”
Jesus said in Matthew 7:13-14, the same chapter from which many singly lift the “judge not” teaching, “Enter ye in at the straight gate, for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat. Because strait is the gate and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
He also said in verse 21, “Not every one that saith unto me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter into the kingdom of Heaven, but he that doeth the will of My Father which is in Heaven.”
In Luke 11:3-5, He declared, “Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things? I tell you, Nay, but except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem? I tell you, Nay, but except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.”
Jesus taught in John 3 that men must be regenerated by the second birth — a working of the Holy Spirit — or they cannot see the kingdom of God.
“He that believeth on Him is not condemned, but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God,” He outlined in John 3:18-20. “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.”


“Perry says she has been in a “committed relationship” with Susan Harlow for 32 years. Her partner, the Rev. Dr. Susan Harlow, is senior pastor at The Peoples Church of Chicago, a United Church of Christ and Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations.”
“She also met her partner, Susan Harlow, a doctoral candidate at Columbia University who also took courses at Union. Perry graduated in 1988 and was seen as an up-and-comer. In 1990, she was ordained by now-retired Newark Bishop John Shelby Spong, an outspoken liberal leader who recruited rising stars and still champions the ordination of openly gay clergy.”

DETROIT, Mich. — The Michigan Diocese of the Episcopal Church has ordained its first lesbian as bishop.
Bonnie Perry was consecrated during a ceremony on Feb. 8 at the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center in Dearborn, followed by a seating at The Cathedral of St. Paul in Detroit. The ceremony was led by Presiding Episcopal Bishop Michael Curry, who had been chosen to deliver the message during the 2018 royal wedding in the United Kingdom.
“I think that this is a wonderful day, not just for the Episcopal church, but for the faith of Christianity, as a face that smiles, and that really is loving, and really is welcoming,” he told Michigan Public Radio. “Bishop-elect Bonnie Perry represents that faith.”
“For me, it’s about full inclusion for all people — straight, gay, bi, trans, gender fluid. This is about everyone; all are welcome,” Perry also stated, according to CNN. “Every time you exclude someone, you exclude the possibility of change and transformation.”
Perry “married” Susan Harlow in December 2012 and has led All Saints Episcopal Church in Chicago since 1992. She was ordained a deacon and priest in New Jersey 30 years ago.
“If you look at Scripture, Jesus said absolutely nothing about homosexuality,” Perry claimed during a press conference on Friday, according to ABC News. “And over and over and over again, we see Jesus always being with people who were perceived by other folks to be on the margin, to be outsiders or less than or not worthy.”
In pointing back to Genesis, Jesus said in Mark 10:7-8, “For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife, and they twain shall be one flesh.” Jesus, who is God and who thus wrote the moral law of God as given to Moses, said in Matthew 5:17, “Think not that I am come to destroy the law or the prophets. I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.”
“For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law till all be fulfilled,” he declared. “Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of Heaven. But whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of Heaven.”
Perry now succeeds Wendell Gibbs, who retired at the end of last year. While she is the first lesbian leader for the Michigan diocese, she is not the first homosexual nationwide to be ordained as bishop. In 2010, the Los Angeles, California diocese elected Mary Douglas Glasspool, a lesbian. In 2003, Gene Robinson was elected to be bishop of the diocese of New Hampshire. He delivered an invocation at the 2009 inauguration of Barack Obama.
The Bible says of the qualifications for a bishop in 1 Timothy 3:1-5 that Church leaders are to be men and the “husband of one wife.”
“A bishop must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behavior, given to hospitality, apt to teach, not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre, but patient, not a brawler, not covetous,” it states. “One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity. For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?”

Easter preparations
A United Methodist Church in Twin Falls, Idaho has been sponsoring drag queen events at a local nightclub in the area which features one the church’s very own parishioners. Twin Falls United Methodist Church hosted the Drag Queen Theology gathering at the local Yellow Brick Café.
Of course, what men dressed up as women and gyrating on stage has to do with theology, salvation, or the mission of the Church is still up in the air, but at least one parishioner of the church made a name for himself as he — who recently moved to town with his husband — answered questions from the audience and performs as a drag queen named Chaise Manhattan.
“For us, this is the most progressive church in town,” Smith told the denomination’s local conference news outlet. “This is the first church that felt like home; like family.”
Apparently, in a denomination that is currently facing the judgment of God as He mercifully gives people one last chance to repent as He calls His people out of her as it moves closer to a split, sexually confused men who can’t figure out that God hates perversion and His wrath abides on them as they put on a disturbing display of Romans 1 is just par for the course.
Apparently they held a “panel discussion” too and fielded “tough questions” from the audience as they joked. But God is not laughing — He will not be mocked (Galatians 6:7).

A New Way to be Catholic with Women Priests

The Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests ordains women in apostolic succession for public ministry in the Church as a prophetic act of justice to foster women’s equality in inclusive Catholic communities. All are invited to receive Eucharist in our inclusive Catholic faith communities. The Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests is a renewed model of priestly ministry that is non-clerical and non-hierarchical in a community of equals. We treasure the mystical, prophetic and sacramental traditions of Roman Catholicism. Our church history demonstrates that women were apostles, prophets, preachers, deacons, priests and bishops in the early Church. We are reclaiming our rightful place as spiritual equals. Visit our ARCWP website: https//

“We women are no longer asking for permission to be priests. Instead, we have taken back our rightful God-given place ministering to Catholics as inclusive and welcoming priests.

Yes, we have challenged and broken the Church’s Canon Law 1024, an unjust law that discriminates against women. Despite what some bishops may lead the faithful to believe, our ordinations are valid because we are ordained in apostolic succession within the Roman Catholic Church.”

It’s difficult to make much sense of what actually just happened here and it’s also unclear just by looking as to whether this “non-binary transgender” person is actually a male or a female, but at least one report says she was born as a woman. One thing is clear, however, is that this “non-binary transgender” person is the first in the U.S. to be ordained as a priestess in the Catholic Church by the Roman Catholic Womenpriests.
Kori Pacyniak was recently ordained as a “priestess” at the Mary Magdeline Apostle Catholic Community — a Catholic Church in San Diego, CA. She has been a member of the “pastoral” team since January of 2017 and according to her bio, received her Master of Divinity at Harvard Divinity School and is also currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Religious Studies at the University of California at Riverside, focusing on Queer and Trans Studies in Religion
And now, apparently, she’s the priestess of the town.
According to one report, she’s wanted to be a priest since she was 8 years old and around 100 people gathered to witness this act,
“I never dared to think that it would be possible to manage in a movement, the RCWP, and with the support of a community, Mary Magdalene, which completely affirms my identity,” Kori told the Union-Tribune, “I am very excited about future opportunities to be a pastor at the intersection of faith, sexuality, and gender.”
Now, one might wonder, doesn’t this go against the Roman Catholic faith? Well, officially it does. But look at what the Roman Catholic Church has allowed people to get away with since the current pope took office. Homosexuality is rampant and Catholic idolatry and paganism has been taken to new heights. However, this event certainly marks a first. It is unclear whether this will be allowed to officially stand, but it did certainly happen.
