On Wednesday, American Greatness Fund, a pro-Trump nonprofit group, will officially launch the Election Integrity Alliance, which will “unite groups and efforts across the nation focused on combating election fraud and will build solutions and provide resources to state legislators and the public on challenges to free and fair elections.” The organization will be a “centralized hub that gives tools to enact meaningful change for the American people.”

“The Election Integrity Alliance’s National Board is comprised of individuals who have fought for election integrity at great personal risk and who are champions for free and fair elections,” the organization said in a statement.

Jenna Ellis, attorney and former counsel to President Trump, will serve as chairwoman of the board. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and former Trump adviser Peter Navarro will serve as honorary co-chairmen. National board members include retired New York police commissioner Bernie Kerik, former deputy assistant for strategy to President Trump Sebastian Gorka, attorney and constitutional law professor Michael Donnelly, and former Trump legal team special assistant Mirna Tarraf.

Jenna Ellis recently challenged embattled congresswoman Liz Cheney to a debate on election integrity. “Election officials in at least six states violated the law in the administration of the 2020 election. That’s called cheating,” she said.

In March, a Michigan judge ruled that Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, a Democrat, broke state law when she unilaterally changed election rules concerning absentee balloting in the 2020 election—legitimizing a key claim made by the Trump legal team in its challenges to the 2020 election. An audit of the vote in Maricopa County, Ariz., is currently underway.

“Free and fair elections are the foundation of a civil government that has power only by consent of the governed,” the group says on its website. “In our system, We The People select and prefer individuals from among ourselves to govern us at all levels, and no individual or party has the right by conquest, heritage, corruption, or fraud to assume power.”

“Only through election integrity can our American government operate according to its limited and legitimate role in civil society,” the statement continued. “America is built on the recognition that our individual rights are God-given and pre-political. The only legitimate purpose of civil government is to preserve and protect those rights which are essential to liberty and justice for all.”

Election integrity, they say, “should be a non-partisan, wholly American value.” The Election Integrity Alliance hopes to “support Congress, the state legislatures, and the voters and together, continue building a more perfect Union.”

President Trump Launches New Communications Platform

President Trump Launches New Communications Platform

BY RAVEN CLABOUGH

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump launched a new communications platform that will allow him to communicate with followers after being banned from social media platforms Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. The rollout came one day before Facebook’s so-called Oversight Board upheld the suspension of Trump’s Facebook account, citing the January 6 Capitol protests.

Supported by Campaign Nucleus, Trump’s communications platform is called “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump.” The Washington Times reports that the new site allows Trump to post comments, images, and videos but does not allow users to comment, though it allows users to share Trump’s content to their own social media pages.

“This is just a one-way communication,” a source said. “This system allows Trump to communicate with his followers.”

According to Fox News, Campaign Nucleus is a “digital ecosystem made for efficiently managing political campaigns and organizations” and is the creation of former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale.

Trump spokesman Jason Miller clarified that the newly launched communications platform is separate from Trump’s long-awaited social-media platform, which, like the communications platform, was also teased several months ago.

“President Trump’s website is a great resource to find his latest statements and highlights from his first term in office, but this is not a new social media platform,” he tweeted. “We’ll have additional information coming on that front in the very near future.”

The communications platform rollout came just in time as Facebook’s quasi-independent Oversight Board announced on Wednesday morning that the ban on the former president from Facebook and Instagram was appropriate. However, the board added that it was “not appropriate for Facebook to impose the indeterminate and standardless penalty of indefinite suspension,” CBS News reported. The board determined Facebook must create “clear, necessary, and proportionate policies that promote public safety and respect freedom of expression.”

The board said Facebook should take the next six months to review the case and decide whether its ban will be permanent or last a specific length of time, MSN reported.

Facebook was reportedly “pleased” with the board’s decision.

“We will now consider the board’s decision and determine an action that is clear and proportionate. In the meantime, Mr. Trump’s accounts remain suspended,” Facebook said in a statement.

It was unclear how the Oversight Board would rule in Trump’s case, with HuffPost claiming the panel has a history of favoring free speech over content restriction, based on its nine previous decisions.

Still, Facebook critics contend the Oversight Board is merely smoke-and-mirrors.

“Facebook set the rules, are judge, jury, and executioner and control their own appeals court and their own Supreme Court. The decisions they make have an impact on our democracies, national security, and biosecurity and cannot be left to their own in-house theatre of the absurd,” said Imran Ahmed, CEO of Center for Countering Digital Hate, a nonprofit critical of Facebook. “Whatever the judgement tomorrow, this whole fiasco shows why we need democratic regulation of Big Tech.”

Gautam Hans, a technology law and free-speech expert and professor at Vanderbilt University, said he finds the Oversight Board structure to be “frustrating and a bit of a sideshow from the larger policy and social questions that we have about these companies.”

“To some degree, Facebook is trying to create an accountability mechanism that I think undermines efforts to have government regulation and legislation,” Hans said. “If any other company decided, well, we’re just going to outsource our decision-making to some quasi-independent body, that would be thought of as ridiculous.”

Meanwhile, Twitter’s ban of Trump’s account in the aftermath of the largely peaceful Capitol protests on January 6 was permanent, with Twitter claiming the account posed a risk of “further incitement of violence.”

“After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them — specifically how they are being received and interpreted on and off Twitter — we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” Twitter said in a statement. “In the context of horrific events this week, we made it clear on Wednesday that additional violations of the Twitter Rules would potentially result in this very course of action. Our public interest framework exists to enable the public to hear from elected officials and world leaders directly. It is built on a principle that the people have a right to hold power to account in the open.”

The platform also permanently deleted the accounts of Trump loyalists, attorney Sidney Powell and former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.

The treatment of President Trump by social media platforms highlights Big Tech’s hypocrisy. Social-media companies made no such efforts to crack down on any of the accounts of Democrats such as then-Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Senator Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), or ex-NFL player Colin Kapernick, all of whom applauded and encouraged the Antifa/BLM violence last summer. So-called comedienne Kathy Griffin tweeted out a photo of herself holding a fake decapitated head intended to look like that of President Trump. She is still on Twitter.

In fact, Twitter’s hypocrisy is particularly glaring. As noted by Voice of America, Ayatollah Ali Khamanei of Iran continues to enjoy virtually unfettered access to the media giant, despite his account’s frequent anti-Semitic, anti-Israel tweets and Iran’s ban against Twitter for ordinary citizens. Even left-wing Slate.com questioned why President Trump’s account would be banned while the Chinese embassy was allowed to continue using the platform to tweet controversial claims such as ones claiming the Uighur women in the country’s Xinjiang region were “liberated” by the Chinese government’s policies and were no longer “baby-making machines.” In these cases, Twitter removes the tweets but allows the accounts to remain.

Biden Speech Frames Jan. 6 as “Worst Attack on Democracy Since the Civil War”; Twitter Explodes

Nearly 100 days into his presidency, Biden made his first address to a joint session of Congress on Wednesday. His speech — apparently so rousing his words lulled Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) to sleep — drew an estimated 26.9 million viewers, according to Deadline, citing Nielsen figures. These numbers reflect a sharp decline from the 47.7 million who watched President Trump’s first speech to a joint session on February 28, 2017.

Biden’s opening remarks revolved around themes of “crisis and opportunity,” both of which he and his administration are extremely familiar. He would go on to discuss the coronavirus crisis, his new infrastructure plan, and the blight of America’s systemic racism, ending on a hopeful note that “Today, America is rising anew.”

“Tonight, I come to talk about crisis and opportunity. About rebuilding a nation, revitalizing our democracy, and winning the future for America,” stated Biden.

Rebuilding America, Biden-style, is really about reimagining her 244-year history and tearing down her monumental achievements of freedom and justice for all. His trillion-dollar “infrastructure plan,” dubbed the American Jobs Plan, is more accurately a complete reinvention of the U.S. economic system, placing the political elite in positions of power and incredible wealth, while relegating the rest of Americans into abject poverty.

Mere minutes into the hour-plus-long address (after a sappy recollection of taking the oath of office and placing his hand on the family Bible) came Biden’s first lie. In the president’s own words:

One hundred days since I took the oath of office and lifted my hand on to our family Bible, and inherited a nation, we all did, that was in crisis. The worst pandemic in a century, the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, the worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War.

First, Biden did not “inherit a nation in crisis.” Moreover, “attack,” “siege,” “insurrection,” these are the labels the establishment media has applied to the breach of the U.S. Capitol on January 6, though the majority of “heinous” crimes committed that day were trespassing and disorderly conduct. Biden’s comparison of selfie-taking Trump supporters with a war that took half a million lives to preserve the Union is appalling. And the reality of January 6 tells another story entirely. Currently, dozens of defenders of liberty, now known as “insurrectionists,” are deteriorating in solitary confinement and denied due process, treated as terrorists yet convicted of no crime. Such actions seem to be fully endorsed by the words of the president.

Second, America is not a democracy but a Constitutional Republic. Major contributions to the floundering economy are catastrophic Democrat-led policy responses to a highly survivable and treatable virus, which have decimated livelihoods in lockdown states such as California, New York, and Oregon.

Biden’s comments sparked outrage on Twitter, as lovers of America took to the social-media platform to respond to the propaganda-laden remarks:

“January 6 was worse than 9/11? Or Pearl Harbor?” tweeted journalist Glenn Greenwald.

He continued, “Or the Oklahoma City bombing? Or the dismantling of civil liberties in the name of the Cold War and War on Terror? Or the mass surveillance program secretly and illegally implemented by NSA aimed at US citizens?”

tweet from the Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway read: “Biden asserts riot was a worse attack than various bombings and deadly attacks on the Capitol, deadly Summer of Rage with its attacks on the WH and federal court buildings, four presidential assassinations, another five assassination attempts, Pearl Harbor, and 9/11. OK.”

One wonders if leftists have any understanding of what really took place on 9/11 or at Pearl Harbor, as Biden’s comments insinuate such atrocities were akin to people milling around, taking selfies in the Capitol building. Among the more than 400 arrested for their participation in the protests, none have been charged with sedition, but not for a lack of trying on the part of the DOJ and FBI.

Author and radio talk-show host Eric Metaxas posted this tweet: “FACT: The ‘worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War’ was when Democrats STOLE an ELECTION from #WeThePeople—and then dared to pretend WE were the threat to democracy. Shame on them. They will not get away with this. Many are praying. God sees.”

Psalm 52. Yes, God sees. Still, Biden and many on the progressive left have accused Trump of incitement and believe that the “cult of Trumpsters” can turn violent at the least provocation. By this provoking, the people may rise up, and as the socialist regimes of the Soviet Union, China, Cambodia, and Cuba, the American leftist government believes they indeed could squash such a revolution. It is what they are waiting for. Conservatives must not be fooled.

House passes bill stopping any future president from imposing ‘travel ban on the basis of religion’

BY CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

The list of countries of concern that the Trump administration outlined in an executive order was based on the document devised by the former Obama administration. Despite the fact that it was Obama who set the foundation, it is Trump who is persistently criticized as being discriminatory against Muslims. Obama restricted visa waivers for seven Muslim-majority countries: Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya and Yemen. The restriction was based on security issues. But we didn’t hear any Leftist outcry about Obama being “racist” against Muslims or discriminatory.

This new bill is nothing but virtue-signaling, and wouldn’t even have stopped Trump’s bans, for they were not based on religion, but on security.

It just happens to be the case that among the world’s most egregious violators of human rights and hotbeds of terrorism are many Muslim countries. Does this new bill now mean that such countries when they are Muslim-majority are no longer dangerous? Does it mean that America should permit open immigration from any country, no matter how violent, as to not offend Muslims and the woke crowd?

As absurd as all this is, it is the premise of the irrational policies that are being instituted by the Biden administration. The administration is willing to put national security at risk as to not offend Islam. America continues a rapid descent downwards; Sharia tenets are being institutionalized, while the strictures and policies of Communism are being increasingly normalized.

“US House passes bill to prevent another ‘Muslim ban,’” by William Roberts, Al Jazeera, April 21, 2021:

The US House of Representatives has passed a bill that would limit the ability of any United States president to impose a travel ban on the basis of religion, a move that was welcomed by civil rights advocates as “a major step forward”.

The legislation, known informally as the NO BAN Act, comes in response to former President Donald Trump’s controversial “Muslim ban” that barred travel to the US from several Muslim-majority countries.

The bill, which must also pass in the US Senate to become law, was approved by a 218-208 vote in the House on Wednesday.

“The Muslim ban tore families apart, put lives on hold for years and labelled Muslims, Africans and other targeted people as threatening outsiders,” said Madihha Ahussain, counsel to Muslim Advocates, a US civil rights group.

“We must ensure that no president can enact discriminatory bans like this ever again and with the passage of the NO BAN Act in the House, we are taking a major step forward to ensuring that they won’t,” Ahussain said in a statement as the bill was passed…

Tennessee lawyer files free speech lawsuit after being fired for ‘anti-Islam’ and pro-Trump tweets

Jerry Morgan gave the details of this case in an exclusive Jihad Watch article HERE. Get more background on this case HERE, where Robert Spencer stated:

What disparaging remarks did Morgan make? Did he say that Muslims were “the most vile of created beings”? No, that’s what the Islamic holy book, the Qur’an, calls non-Muslims (98:6). Did he call Muslims “apes and pigs”? No, that’s what the Qur’an calls Jews (2:63-65, 5:59-60, 7:166). Did he say Muslims were “unclean”? No, that’s what the Qur’an says of non-Muslims (9:28).

So what egregious statements did Morgan actually make?

As it turned out, he has been forced to resign for “praising President Donald Trump for ‘stopping Muslims’ and ‘talking big against Muslims,’” and “said Islam was not a peaceful religion and made comments linking the faith with violence and ‘Muslim terrorists.’”

To our dhimmi overlords, however, all that matters is that anything offensive to Islam/Muslims, even if it is true, must be shut down in accordance with Sharia blasphemy laws, which are well on the way to becoming mainstream in American society, despite the First Amendment. Jerry Morgan is one of the few who have had the courage to fight back, and we wish him well.

“Tennessee: State Lawyer Fired for ‘Anti-Islam’ Tweets Files Speech Suit,” Bloomberg Law, April 6, 2021:

An attorney alleges the Tennessee Supreme Court’s board of professional responsibility unlawfully fired him for posting Tweets that an opposing party said displayed anti-Muslim bias, arguing his social media posts were constitutionally protected political speech similar to that of former president Donald Trump.

The board of professional responsibility regulates licensed Tennessee attorneys. Jerry Morgan handled appeals to the state supreme court regarding attorney discipline, according to his complaint filed Monday at the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee.

Attorney Brian Manookian, who was undergoing disciplinary proceedings, filed a motion to disqualify Morgan, claiming he was an anti-Muslim bigot. Manookian cited multiple Tweets Morgan had posted that, among other things, praised then-candidate Trump for “talking about the #1 issue of our time—stopping Muslims” and disparaged Muslims and Democrats.

Manookian claimed Morgan had an anti-Islam bias that could prejudice him, because his wife was Muslim and his children were being raised in a Muslim household.

Morgan says his posts were “indisputably political in nature,” concerning matters that were controversial but part of the national debate. “Many were views publicly expressed by Trump” and agreed to by the Tennessee voters who “overwhelmingly” voted for him in 2016, Morgan says. There were no accusations against him of biased conduct in the Manookian case or any other, Morgan claims.

Morgan was fired in December. He sued the board and chief disciplinary counsel Sandra Garrett, alleging he was unconstitutionally punished for Tweets that were made in his private capacity and were about matters of public importance.

Cause of Action: First Amendment.

Relief Requested: Damages, injunctive relief….

China takes initiative in Middle East peace negotiations amid void left by Trump’s departure

Biden has already made a catastrophic mess of foreign affairs. The lack of mainstream media coverage and analysis about it doesn’t mean that America’s enemies are not observing. While woke blokes remain with their heads firmly in the sand, avowed enemies such as Iran are emboldened. And now China has entered the Middle East fray: the worst possible player to fill the void left by the Trump Administration.

In August 2020,  a “25-year comprehensive strategic partnership agreement between Iran and China” was reportedly formed, but now China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi has visited Saudi Arabia and is expressing “support for the Saudi initiative to resolve the conflict in Yemen.”

Wang Yi also discussed the Palestinian and Israeli issue and called for a two-state solution, stressing that his country would send invitations to Palestinian and Israeli personalities for a dialogue in China.

A weak Biden administration has left a gaping hole in negotiating stability in the Middle East. To Iran, Biden is a laughing stock. To Saudi Arabia, Biden is a provocation, going so far as to remove the terrorist designation from the Houthi jihadis (who are Iranian proxies) in Yemen. In a few short months, Biden has managed to stymie the historic progress made by Trump. As was well stated by the American Spectator, right from the start Biden began “unraveling Middle East peace.” Now the Middle East is headed along a path to war, with malign powers including China lining up to exploit the situation.

“Chinese FM reveals initiative to protect MidEast: Al Arabiya”, Arab News, March 24, 2021:

DUBAI: Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Wednesday unveiled a five-point initiative for security and stability in the Middle East to Al Arabiya.

The minister, who is visiting Saudi Arabia, told the channel that China called for “mutual respect among the countries of the Middle East.”

Yi stressed the importance of supporting the efforts the regional states regarding the Syria and Yemen files.

The minister expressed China’s support for the Saudi initiative to resolve the conflict in Yemen, stressing that it reflects Riyadh’s resolve to address the Yemeni crisis. He also hoped to implement that initiative as soon as possible.

The Saudi peace initiative includes a nationwide ceasefire and the reopening of air and sea links with the territories held by the Houthi group in Yemen.

The Chinese minister also discussed the Palestinian and Israeli issue, and called for a two-state solution, stressing that his country would send invitations to Palestinian and Israeli personalities for a dialogue in China.

He also stressed that China called for the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons in the Middle East, adding, “the efforts of the countries of the region must be supported to ensure that they are free of nuclear weapons.”

During his visit to Saudi Arabia, the Chinese minister is expected to meet his Saudi counterpart, Prince Faisal bin Farhan and Nayef Al-Hajraf, the Secretary-General of the Gulf Cooperation Council…..

GOP Legislators: Biden Broke Law in Stopping Wall Construction

GOP Legislators: Biden Broke Law in Stopping Wall Construction

BY R. CORT KIRKWOOD

SEE: https://thenewamerican.com/gop-legislators-biden-broke-law-in-stopping-wall-construction/;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

More than 100 Republican congressmen and senators have asked the Government Accountability Office to render an opinion on President Biden’s order to halt border wall construction.

Forty senators wrote to Gene Dodaro last week, and more than 60 congressmen joined that effort on Tuesday.

Biden’s proclamation on January 20 usurped Congress’ authority to control spending, they claim, and that he cannot simply refuse to spend funds for a project that Congress approved. Congress OK’d border wall funding in December.

They base their case on GAO’s ruling that President Trump broke the law when he tried to cut military funding for Ukraine.

Biden’s Order

Biden invited the GOP action when he declared that he would stop building a wall on the southern border with Mexico. Trump promised to build a wall to stop the illegal-alien invasion that has gone on for years and peaked in 2019. Biden’s border wall proclamation can be found here.

Biden’s goal: Import as many illegals as possible, turn them into citizens so they vote for Democrats, then achieve permanent one-party rule.

Declaring an end to the national emergency at the border that Trump rightly saw, Biden simply stopped construction. He also ordered the redirection of $1.4 billion Congress OK’d for the wall in December. “Building a massive wall that spans the entire southern border is not a serious policy solution,” Biden proclaimed. “It is a waste of money that diverts attention from genuine threats to our homeland security.” 

Not so fast, the 40 GOP senators wrote on March 17. “We understand from DHS that it has suspended its border wall projects, that the continued obligation of funds for those purposes has been halted, and that both are a direct consequence of the Proclamation,” they wrote:

As these unlawful pauses have proceeded, the rate of illegal crossings has surged, creating a crisis across our southern border, at times with tragic consequences. Meanwhile, billions in lawfully appropriated dollars, which were provided by Congress to address precisely this issue, sit unused by the Biden Administration. 

Biden’s proclamation includes not only Trump’s redirected defense appropriations for the wall, which the U.S. Supreme Court approved, but also “projects funded by direct appropriations, which we understand to refer to appropriations provided directly to DHS specifically for border wall construction.”

The latter is what concerns the 40 GOP senators; that is, whether Biden violated the Impoundment Control Act of 1974. The senators’ letter explained:

The Constitution specifically vests Congress with the power of the purse, providing that “No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law.” The President is not vested with the power to ignore or amend a duly enacted law. Instead, he must “faithfully execute” the law as Congress enacts it. 

An appropriations act is a law like any other; therefore, the President must take care to ensure that appropriations are prudently obligated in the manner they were provided by Congress. The Constitution grants the President no unilateral authority to withhold funds from obligation. Instead, Congress has vested the President with strictly circumscribed authority to impound, or withhold, budget authority only in limited circumstances. These circumstances are expressly provided in the ICA.

The president can also delay funding when “an agency is taking necessary steps to implement a program, but because of factors external to the program, funds temporarily go unobligated,” the senators wrote. “This presumes, of course, that the agency is making reasonable efforts to obligate.”

The senators observed that the GAO declared that Trump violated the ICA by not providing appropriated funds to Ukraine.

Because Congress appropriated wall funding, and Trump signed it, Biden “must prudently obligate and execute those funds for the purposes for which they were provided. The President now in office is charged with faithfully executing these laws, notwithstanding any policy or political disagreements with his predecessor who signed them.”

Congressman Sign On

This week, more than five dozen congressmen signed a letter adding their names to the request.

Biden’s rash orders that undid Trump’s progress in securing the border have led to another illegal-alien invasion. During February, border agents apprehended more than 100,000 illegals, about 3,000 per day.

Biden has packed illegals and their “children” into cages at the border, and has spent more than $100 million to bring them into the country and stop the border wall.

Boulder Shooter is ISIS Sympathizer, Leftists Hardest Hit

Another opportunity to shore up their sagging “white terror threat” narrative is lost.

BY ROBERT SPENCER

SEE: https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2021/03/boulder-shooter-isis-sympathizer-leftists-hardest-robert-spencer/;

A man murdered ten people in a Boulder, Colorado supermarket Monday. No details were immediately released about the shooter, but Leftist “journalists,” working from a photo of the shooter, seized upon the shooting to shore up their sagging narrative of “white supremacist terrorism.” There was just one problem: the massacre was actually, after a four-year hiatus, a new incidence of Islamic jihad on American soil.

Even after the shooter’s name was revealed as Ahmad Al Issa (which is how he himself wrote it on his Facebook and Twitter accounts), establishment media reports continued to give his name as  “Alissa,” which of course is a common first name for women in the U.S., and thus gives the impression that he is an American non-Muslim. Were “journalists” trying to obscure the fact that he is a Muslim migrant ISIS sympathizer? Of course, they were.

And that was after they had already decided that he was one of those “right-wing extremists” who are, according to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, the “most lethal and persistent” threat the U.S. faces today. Julie DiCaro, a senior writer and editor at Deadspin, tweeted: “Extremely tired of people’s lives depending on whether a white man with an AR-15 is having a good day or not.” As of this writing on Tuesday afternoon, DiCaro has not taken down the tweet, as some media hacks are still, like a captain going down with his sinking ship, insisting that Al Issa is white. Prominent race-baiter Tariq Nasheed tweeted: “White supremacists are trying their hardest to deflect from the fact the Boulder suspect is WHITE. Syrians in America are legally, politically & socially WHITE. Their white status is well documented in court cases Terms like ‘Muslim, ‘Arab’, ‘Islamic doesn’t change whiteness.”

Of course, Al Issa really is white, as he is an Arab Muslim migrant from Syria, and Arabs have been considered “white” ever since they began arriving in this country. Nasheed’s tweet, however, still pointed up the Left’s inconsistency and hypocrisy: up until this shooting, Leftists considered Arab Muslims to be “brown,” after the fashion of Linda Sarsour, who memorably identified as white until she put on a hijab and miraculously became a “person of color.” If the Boulder shooter had been a white non-Muslim American and his victims had been white Arab Muslims, Tariq Nasheed would be railing against the persecution of “brown” people in the United States.

But as it is, Nasheed is trying desperately to shore up a failing narrative. The reality is that Ahmad Al Issa is a deeply religious Muslim with pro-ISIS sympathies. He complained bitterly about “Islamophobia,” hated Donald Trump with passionate intensity, and had scouted out churches and Trump rallies as possible targets for his jihad massacre.

All this makes it abundantly clear that not only is Ahmad Al Issa not a “white supremacist,” but he is a living manifestation of the effects of Leftism in America today. After migrating from Syria as a child during the Obama administration, he, and many others like him, has been inundated with relentless propaganda about how he is a victim of a racist and “Islamophobic” society that will never give him a fair shake, and is institutionally determined to make sure he will never succeed. He has been told that Trump hated Muslims and that his followers were precisely the people who were keeping him down and denying him access to the privilege that they themselves enjoyed at the expense of the “brown” people they despised.

The Democratic Party has been stoking this kind of resentment and feeding it to young people in schools, colleges and universities for years. Ahmad Al Issa is a product of their indoctrination. That in itself may be one reason why Leftist “journalists” and professional agitators such as Tariq Nasheed are so intent on driving home the point that this was a “white” shooter acting out of the hatred that is intrinsic to American culture: to deflect attention away from the fact that he is not a product of American culture at all, but of the Left’s subculture of hatred and resentment. If we had a sane political environment in the country today, that is the hateful subculture the Justice Department would be concerned about. Instead, even as Antifa continues to make the Great Northwest into a radioactive wasteland, this hateful subculture isn’t even on the radar screen. And Ahmad Al Issa isn’t going to put it there.

White House: It’s Trump’s Fault That 4200 Children Are Now Sleeping On Floor Of Cages With No Sunlight

Even far-left outlets are demanding to know why on earth the Biden administration is fuelling a humanitarian disaster at the border

In a desperate attempt to avoid questioning about the worsening humanitarian crisis at the Southern border, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki claimed that it is President Trump’s fault that thousands of children are sleeping on concrete-floored cages without seeing the Sun for days.

As previously reported by CBS News, just under one month ago there were only NINE children being held in Border Patrol facilities, yet now there are over 4000.

Even journalists for far left outlets are appalled by what is unfolding.

PBS White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor asked Psaki to explain what on earth is going on.

“There were lawyers who interviewed some children that were in facilities,” Alcindor said, adding “The children described sleeping on the floor, being hungry, not seeing the sun for days.”

She continued “How is that acceptable for the Biden administration to keep children in those sorts of conditions, given the fact that you said you were an administration that was going to be more humane than the previous one?”

Psaki immediately blamed President Trump, stating “We are trying to work through what was a dismantled and unprepared system because of the role of the last administration.”

Watch:

Alcindor continued to ask for an explanation, stating “children being hungry, sleeping on the floor, not being allowed outside for days at a time, why is that acceptable to go on, even for one more day? Why is that something that’s not being outlawed right now? How is the administration not stopping that today?”

Again avoiding the question, Psaki responded “Well, Yamiche, it’s not acceptable. But I think the challenge here is that there are not that many options.”

How about the option not to completely reverse Trump’s policies which your own people admit were preventing this kind of hell from unfolding?

That was an option.

Meanwhile, it is a 100% certainty, not 99%, but 100%, that Berea College administrators and professors would recoil in horror at the prospect of hosting an event focusing on the threat of jihad violence and Sharia oppression. In the extraordinarily unlikely off-chance that such an event was scheduled, it would be inundated with charges of “Islamophobia” and “racism” to the extent that most students would not attend, for fear of the social stigma attached to going. But this? Demonizing and smearing half the American electorate? That’s just fine. And of course, it plays right into the agenda of the political and media elites, who have embarked upon a clear initiative to defame all supporters of the former president as “extremists,” as they did previously with foes of jihad terror and Sharia injustice, and destroy them accordingly. The U.S. is entering an extremely dark period, but it has been a long time in the offing.

“Kentucky college hosting event describing ‘white citizenship’ and ‘Trumpism’ as terrorism,” by Sam Dorman, Fox News, March 12, 2021:

A Kentucky college is scheduled to host an event critical of Donald Trump and associating the former president and “white citizenship” with terrorism.

A flyer obtained by Young America’s Foundation (YAF) describes the event as a way to “resituate Trumpism and white citizenship as forms of white terrorism enacted against the majority of people living within the borders of the U.S. and beyond.”

Titled “White citizenship as terrorism: Make America Great Again, Again,” the event is set to take place on March 17 via Zoom, according to a page on Berea College’s website. The Women’s and Non-Gender Non-Conforming Center is sponsoring the session with the Law, Ethics, and Society at the college.

YAF said it obtained the flyer through its Campus Bias Tip Line. It features images of protesters carrying tiki torches at the racially charged Charlottesville, Virginia, protests at the beginning of Trump’s presidency.

The flyer also takes a critical approach to the “Make America Great Again” slogan. “Despite calls for multiculturalism and color-blindness, segments of white America mourn their so-called loss of privilege, consistently begging to return to the nostalgic past in which their esteemed value as white citizens went unquestioned,” it reads.

“Trump’s ‘Make America Great Again’ appears to follow suit by offering a seemingly benign promise to return America to a previously ‘great’ past. But the offer to ‘Make America Great Again, Again,’ requires we refocus on how the last four years of daily tweets and administrative actions redefine whiteness. If terrorism is defined as the use of violence and threats to create a state of fear towards particular communities and identities, then this is what ‘Trumpism’ is at its core.”

Berea defended the event in a statement to Fox News Thursday.

“To some, the provocative title of the event implies that Berea is not a welcoming place for individuals with differing political views,” a statement from the college read….

More than “implies,” you fascists.

Iran says Biden’s handlers approve release of $3 billion in Iranian funds frozen in Iraq, Oman, and South Korea

BY ROBERT SPENCER

This is just the beginning. This money will prop up the Islamic Republic, which is so widely hated in Iran that it might otherwise have fallen, and enable the mullahs to step up their financing of jihad terror groups, as well as Leftist groups, worldwide. What could possibly go wrong? Good thing Trump isn’t still around tweeting mean things, right?

“Iran says US approved the release of $3 bln of Iran’s funds in Iraq, Oman, S. Korea,” by Yaghoub Fazeli, Al Arabiya, March 7, 2021:

The United States has agreed to the release of $3 billion in Iranian funds that have been frozen in Iraq, Oman and South Korea due to Washington’s sanctions, Iranian trade official Hamid Hosseini told the semi-official Fars news agency on Sunday.

Hosseini, board member of the Iran-Iraq Joint Chamber of Commerce, had tweeted on Friday that Washington approved the release of frozen Iranian assets at the Trade Bank of Iraq, without mentioning the value of the assets.

Hosseini on Sunday confirmed that the US agreed to the release of $3 billion in Iranian frozen assets in the three countries.

US sanctions imposed by former President Donald Trump have prevented Iran from accessing tens of billions of its assets in foreign banks.

Iranian frozen assets in Iraq amount to more than $6 billion, according to Iranian officials.

The head of the Iran-South Korea Chamber of Commerce said in October Iranian frozen funds in South Korea are worth $8.5 billion and added that their release depended on the outcome of the US presidential election.

Iranian officials have not commented on the value of Iran’s frozen assets in Oman.

Iran’s economy has been hit hard since 2018 when Trump withdrew from the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers and reimposed sweeping sanctions on the country.

Iran’s chances of gaining access to billions of dollars of its frozen assets abroad have risen significantly since Trump, who pursued a policy of “maximum pressure” against Tehran, left the White House….

Last month, South Korea said it reached an agreement with Iran over the release of Tehran’s frozen funds in its banks but signalled that the agreement was effectively subject to US approval.

Biden’s handlers say visa applicants denied under Trump’s ‘Muslim Ban’ can now reapply

What could possibly go wrong? Here’s a hint: Somali Muslim migrant Mohammad Barry in February 2016 stabbed multiple patrons at a restaurant owned by an Israeli Arab Christian; Ahmad Khan Rahami, an Afghan Muslim migrant, in September 2016 set off bombs in New York City and New Jersey; Arcan Cetin, a Turkish Muslim migrant, in September 2016 murdered five people in a mall in Burlington, Washington; Dahir Adan, another Somali Muslim migrant, in October 2016 stabbed mall shoppers in St. Cloud while screaming “Allahu akbar”; and Abdul Razak Artan, yet another Somali Muslim migrant, in November 2016 injured nine people with car and knife attacks at Ohio State University.

Seventy-two jihad terrorists had entered the U.S. from the countries listed in Trump’s initial immigration ban before it was instituted. But once the travel bans came into effect, suddenly we didn’t see as much of this as we had before. Yes, this was no coincidence.

There are warning signs from Europe as well. All of the jihadis who murdered 130 people in Paris in November 2015 had just entered Europe as refugees. Numerous other Muslim migrants since then have committed “lone wolf” jihad attacks on the streets of several European countries.

But to consider such matters is now officially “racist” and “Islamophobic.” The problem with virtue-signaling by our moral superiors in Washington, however, is that they never have to deal with the consequences of their actions; ordinary Americans do.

“U.S. says visa applicants denied due to Trump ‘Muslim ban’ can reapply,” Reuters, March 8, 2021:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Most U.S. visa applicants who were denied because of former President Donald Trump’s travel ban on 13 mostly Muslim-majority and African countries can seek new decisions or submit new applications, the State Department said on Monday.

President Joe Biden overturned Trump’s so-called Muslim ban on Jan. 20, his first day in office, calling it “a stain on our national conscience” in his proclamation.

State Department spokesman Ned Price said applicants who were refused visas prior to Jan. 20, 2020, must submit new applications and pay a new application fee. Those who were denied on or after Jan. 20, 2020, may seek reconsideration without re-submitting their applications and do not have to pay additional fees, Price said….

Since December 2017, after a revised version of the original travel ban was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court, some 40,000 people have been barred from entering the United States under the ban, according to State Department data.

During the Trump administration some countries were added and others dropped from the list. At the end of Trump’s presidency it comprised Myanmar, Eritrea, Iran, Kyrgyzstan, Libya, Nigeria, North Korea, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tanzania, Venezuela and Yemen.

Livid Trump Blasts “Our Country is Being Destroyed at the Southern Border”

Record number of kids in cages being held beyond legal limit. Migrants themselves refer to cells as "dog kennels" and "ice boxes"

A livid President Trump issued a statement Tuesday lamenting that the country is “being destroyed” by the Biden administration’s actions at the border, as the crisis further spirals out of control.

Border crossings have surged after Biden promised mass amnesty, began allowing unaccompanied migrant children into the US again, and reversed Trump’s ‘remain in Mexico’ policy.

Video is emerging every day of hundreds of migrants walking into the US, while cities in Arizona and Texas warn that they are becoming overwhelmed, and warning of the complete lack of effort to test for or prevent the spread of COVID:

Border patrol is reported to have arrested around 100,000 migrants attempting to illegally cross the border in February alone.

Trump’s statement read “When I was President, our Southern border was in great shape – stronger, safer, and more secure than ever before.”

“We ended Catch-and-Release, shut down asylum fraud, and crippled the vicious smugglers, drug dealers, and human traffickers,” Trump continued, adding “The Wall, despite horrendous Democratic delays, would have easily been finished by now.”

Commenting on the current situation, Trump proclaimed “Our country is being destroyed at the Southern border, a terrible thing to see!”

There are now a record number of migrant children being kept in Border Patrol ‘cages’, which the migrants themselves are calling “dog kennels” and “ice boxes” according to reports.

CBS News reports that there are more than 3,200 unaccompanied minors in the facilities, with almost half being held beyond the legal three-day limit.

Less than a month ago there were just NINE children being held, according to CBP documents cited in the CBS report.

There are a further 8,100 migrant children being held at the Office of Refugee Resettlement.

This is an unprecedented crisis caused directly by the undoing of Trump’s border policies and the Biden administration refuses to address it. Biden himself has not faced questions from the media for almost 50 days at this time.

In fact, they are putting out “leaks” that reveal their intentions to continue an open border policy, with the intention to integrate 117,000 migrant youths and children this year alone.

 

 

Meanwhile, Arizona and Montana are taking legal action to block the new immigration regulations, which also limit the ability of ICE to detain illegals.

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich said in a statement “If asked about the poorest policy choice I’ve ever seen in government, this would be a strong contender.”

“Blindly releasing thousands of people, including convicted criminals and those who may be spreading COVID-19 into our state, is both unconscionable and a violation of federal law,” Brnovich added, urging “This must be stopped now to avoid a dangerous humanitarian crisis for the immigrants and the people of Arizona.”

Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen has also warned that “Meth trafficked into Montana by Mexican drug cartels has wracked our state. The problem will only be made worse if the Biden administration continues to allow criminals to stay in the country.”

“Enforcing our immigration laws and helping to keep Americans safe is one of the federal government’s most important functions. The Biden administration is failing its basic responsibility to Americans,” Knudsen emphasized.

Trump Slams Biden on Immigration, Warns of COVID Spread – PJ Media

Trump EVISCERATES Biden's Immigration Policy, Warns Loose Border Spreads COVID

Texas governor blasts Biden's border crisis: 'End this scheme right now.'

Former President Donald Trump slammed President Joe Biden’s lax immigration policy in a powerful statement on Friday. Trump warned that Biden’s deportation moratorium, his return to catch-and-release, his stopping the construction of the border wall, and his rejection of multilateral border agreements with Mexico and other countries has helped unleash a “tsunami” at the border that, among other things, is helping spread the COVID-19 pandemic in the U.S.

“Our border is now totally out of control thanks to the disastrous leadership of Joe Biden,” Trump declared in a written statement. “Our great Border Patrol and ICE agents have been disrespected, demeaned, and mocked by the Biden Administration. A mass incursion into the country by people who should not be here is happening on an hourly basis, getting worse by the minute. Many have criminal records, and many others have and are spreading [COVID-19].”

Trump claimed that interior enforcement has been “shut down,” so that criminals that the Trump administration would have removed “are now being released back onto the street to commit heinous and violent crimes. ICE officers are desperate to remove these convicted criminals, but Biden won’t let them.”

Trump claimed that when he left office, “we had achieved the most secure border in our country’s history,” but he warned that “under Biden, it will soon be worse, more dangerous, and more out of control than ever before. He has violated his oath of office to uphold our Constitution and enforce our laws.”

“Now that Biden has implemented nationwide Catch-and-Release, illegal immigrants from every corner of the Earth will descend upon our border and never be returned. You can never have a secure border unless people who cross illegally are promptly removed,” Trump warned.

The former president excoriated Biden for abandoning the “remain in Mexico policy,” which required asylum seekers to wait in Mexico while their cases were adjudicated. Biden indeed dropped the policy shortly after his inauguration. “Likewise, our Safe Third Agreements in Central America were extraordinarily successful, so Biden foolishly ditched them too,” the former president noted.

Perhaps most egregiously, Biden dropped investigations into human trafficking. Trump noted, “We put in place powerful rules and procedures to stop the smuggling and trafficking, but the Biden Administration has abandoned these proven strategies and instead given the smugglers and traffickers effective control of our border.”

Trump also lamented Biden’s halt to construction of the border wall, even though the former president left it “almost finished” so that it “can be quickly completed.”

“Doing so will save thousands of lives,” the former president urged. While it remains unclear how many lives the wall would save — by discouraging migrants from seeking to cross the U.S. border and therefore endangering themselves —Biden apparently prefers the symbolism of dropping Trump’s policy over whatever good a wall would do.

Trump Eviscerates Biden’s Record in Blistering CPAC Speech

“The spiraling tsunami at the border is overwhelming local communities, depleting budgets, crowding hospitals, and taking jobs from legal American workers,” Trump warned. He also noted that illegal immigrants might carry the coronavirus with them. Indeed, Border Patrol recently released more than 100 illegal immigrants who tested positive for COVID-19 in Texas.

“The Biden Administration must act immediately to end the border nightmare that they have unleashed onto our Nation,” Trump concluded. “Keep illegal immigration, crime, and the China Virus out of our country!”

The statement included the usual Trump bluster, but the former president’s warning raised serious concerns about Biden’s immigration policy. It seems Biden has directed federal officials not to enforce the law, signaling that crossing the U.S. border illegally — which is still a crime — will not be penalized.

Just before Biden took office, a senior Biden transition official warned migrants hoping to cross the southern border that “now is not the time” to make the journey — suggesting that the opportunity would come soon. “There’s help on the way, but now is not the time to make the journey,” the official said, according to NBC News.

Customs and Border Patrol has briefed the White House on the grim prospect that as many as 13,000 unaccompanied alien children will arrive by May as caravans head north.

Biden’s near-total reversal of Trump’s immigration policy — which largely involved enforcing existing federal law — has sparked a likely crisis on the southern border. Trump was right to call him out on it, and Biden would be wise to listen. Unfortunately, the president is likely to double down on his lax policies and encourage yet more illegal immigration.
