We The Subjects of Deep State Tyranny

Mat Staver has sent a combo email/fund raising alert to petition members of Congress to posthaste demand the Department of Justice investigate Obama Administration nefarious election practices and the Crooked Hillary Russian Collusion campaign before and after the election to take down President Trump.

 

There are three Fax petition links that require funding to send the faxes. And at the very end is a free petition link that Staver says will be delivered to Congress. If faxing is not exactly in your budget, HERE is the petition link up front. To sign the free petition you have to click link, but here is wording to which you are signing:

 

Tell Congress to INVESTIGATE CLINTON-FBI ANTI-TRUMP COLLUSION

 

YES!! I’m taking a stand to expose the FBI-Clinton corruption!

The Issue:

 

The FBI, the Clinton campaign, the Obama White House, and Democrat members of Congress appear to have been caught red-handed weaponizing federal agencies to attack the Trump campaign and presidency.

 

We are calling on officials of the United States Congress to investigate and initiate prosecution, if the evidence is clear. This is within their congressional responsibility.

 

Take Action…

 

If you AGREE that we must get to the bottom of this Clinton-FBI-Obama-DNC witch hunt against President Trump, then take TWO MINUTES right now to sign our “Investigate Clinton-FBI Anti-Trump Collusion” petition.

 

No one is above the law! We demand accountability at every level of government, including holding Barack Obama and his inner circle accountable for their actions during and after their tenure in office.

 

Our Petition States:

 

As a concerned citizen, I am signing this petition calling on Congress and/or the Justice Department to establish an Independent Investigation into the actions of the FBI, the Obama White House, the Democratic National Committee (DNC), and the Hillary Clinton campaign related to collusion and corruption surrounding the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and campaign officials.

There is now a direct paper trail linking the DNC and the Clinton campaign to the so-called Steele dossier. Also, the release of the Nunes memo makes it clear that the FBI both operated in conjunction with Clinton/DNC operatives and withheld key information from the FISA court. This amounts to gross political corruption and the weaponizing of our government against Hillary Clinton’s and Barack Obama’s political opponents. An Independent Investigation must be launched!

THEN YOU SIGN IT!

 

In all honesty, an inundation of faxes to your Representative and Senators will draw attention because in November 2018 an election is coming up. Keep in mind the lying Dem machine will be in full swing to deflect from their criminal activities. Realize the deflection is a lie and get angry. Write letters to the Editor expressing displeasure. Inundate your social media platforms with your displeasure. And, if or when, is blocked or ignored, WRITE AGAIN!

 

Ultimately you are a voting citizen if you are eighteen or above by the November 2018 election. Show the propagandists you will NOT BE SILENCED at the ballot box.

 

Here is the reason the Mat Staver email should be acted upon from this quote:

 

The FBI, the Clinton campaign, the Obama White House, and certain Democrat members of Congress appear to have been caught red-handed weaponizing federal agencies to attack the Trump campaign and presidency.

 

If any of these unconstitutional treasonous deeds go unanswered or President Trump somehow unconstitutionally removed, then it not only a coup against the Trump Administration but also a coup against the United States Constitution!

 

A Constitutional Coup renders this Preamble to an interesting footnote to history:

 

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

 

A Constitutional coup renders “We the People of the United States” to We the Subjects of a tyrannical government.

In case you missed my important weekend update… Hillary Clinton should go to jail for what we have recently learned. Barack Obama should be put under oath to find out “what he knew and when he knew it.” And the FBI swamp must be drained! Please see below and take action with me — Mat.

 

John [That is I, your Blog Editor],

I need your help to blow the lid off one of the biggest political scandals in our nation’s history. [Fund Raising Fax Link]

The FBI, the Clinton campaign, the Obama White House, and certain Democrat members of Congress appear to have been caught red-handed weaponizing federal agencies to attack the Trump campaign and presidency.

 

+ + How The Obama FBI Was “Weaponized” Against Trump

The recently released House GOP memo on the FBI confirms what we have been learning over several months: the FBI was “weaponized” against then-candidate Trump.

In summary, the memo confirms that the FBI and the DOJ abused their powers to obtain a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance (FISA) warrant against former Trump campaign adviser, Carter Page.

+ + Barack Obama Now Connected To FBI Cover-Up

Text messages between senior FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page are blowing the lid off of a DOJ/FBI cover-up that likely extends to the Obama White House.

At the time, Strzok was heading up the Clinton email probe and Page was an FBI lawyer. Just two months prior to the election, Page wrote to Strzok about prepping then-FBI Director James Comey because…

 

“potus [President of the United States] wants to know everything we’re doing.”

 

By referencing President Obama, Page’s text raises the critical question: What did the President know and when did he know it? And here’s another question… Why was President Obama even in the loop?

+ + Paid For By Hillary, Implemented By Obama’s FBI

Michael Goodwin, writing in the New York Post, sums up the situation well:

 

“It increasingly appears that the [Hillary] Clinton machine was the secret, original source of virtually all the allegations about Trump and Russia that led to the FBI investigation…. [Clinton’s machine] paid for and created allegations against her Republican opponent, gave them to law enforcement, then tipped friendly media to the investigation…. In fact, the Clinton connections are so fundamental that there probably would not have been an FBI investigation without her involvement.”

 

One would expect this level of corruption to occur in a Banana Republic. Sad to say, it happened in America.

+ + Tell Congress to INVESTIGATE THE CLINTON-FBI ANTI-TRUMP COLLUSION [Fund Raising Fax Link]
I have instructed my Liberty Counsel Action team to spearhead efforts calling for an Independent Investigation into this entire sordid FBI campaign against President Trump.

If you AGREE that we must get to the bottom of this Clinton-FBI-Obama-DNC witch hunt against President Trump, then click here right now to automatically sign our “Investigate the Clinton-FBI Anti-Trump Collusion” petition. [Fund Raising Fax Link]

This is one of the worst political scandals in American history. We have a presidential candidate (Hillary Clinton) FUNDING fabricated unsubstantiated research against her opponent, which became the basis of an FBI investigation against President Trump. And President Obama wanted “to know everything,” according to an FBI staffer. But if we do not take action, there will be no accountability!

Please… click here to automatically sign the “Investigate Clinton-FBI Anti-Trump Collusion” petition so my representatives in D.C. can personally take these petitions to key leaders on Capitol Hill. [Fund Raising Fax Link]

Thank you for joining us in this bold initiative!

Miracle Cure or Scam?

I am on the free subscription of many Online Conservative websites. I am a Conservative. Well, DUH, right?

 

I understand completely these websites have budget needs. As such, those websites distribute paid 3rd party ads to their subscribers. Since the ad comes from a Conservative website, you might have the predilection to trust what the advertiser is selling.

 

When these ads promote miracle health cures or benefits, YOU should be wary. If a true health cure existed for a chronic disease, even the Leftist MSM would be publishing the results of “independent” studies for an excited and willing public.

 

I ran into one of these “Too good to be true” ads distributed by ConservativeFWD.com. Here is the email-ad sent to me:

 

Florida MD defies FDA gag order

By Dr. Al Sears

Sent 2/16/18

 

Friend,

 

As an MD, I could get into serious trouble just for writing this… But I won’t stop because this message has the power to save millions of lives.

 

You see, the FDA has a standing gag order forbidding doctors from telling patients about a new, revolutionary cure discovered by Harvard scientists.

 

This study should have made front page news around the world. It’s the kind of news that would have most Americans falling off their sofas… if they ever heard it.

 

The Harvard researchers behind this study discovered a way to “flip a switch” inside your cells that makes it virtually impossible for any chronic disease to exist in that cell…

…and if you already have diseased cells, you can make them disappear as if they never existed at all.

 

This hushed-up, breakthrough technology provides a possible CURE for everything from cancer and heart disease, to diabetes and Alzheimer’s.

 

And it’s available RIGHT NOWBut it never sees the light of day.

 

Today, I’m blowing the whistle on the FDA because you and your family have a right to know.

 

Please click HERE and read my special report.

 

To Your Good Health,

 

 

 

Al Sears, MD, CNS

 

 

Hmm … I am a bit suspicious when it is claimed the FDA suppressed a miracle cure from a Harvard medical study. And, I have diabetes. So, I checked it out.

The links in the email take you to one of those videos that dominate the entire website – no pausing, fast forward or reverse. When it appears you are thinking of leaving the website, a pop-up shows asking if you would read the transcript to the video. I did that.

 

The transcript is every bit as long as the video (roughly 35 minutes). Here are some selected excerpts from the transcript:

 

PIONEERING MD DEFIES THE FDA TO REVEAL:

 

THE OUTLAWED CURE FOR ALL DISEASE

 

THIS HUSHED-UP CURE FOR HEART DISEASE, DIABETES, ALZHEIMER’S AND CANCER HAS BEEN CENSORED, BANNED, AND BLACKLISTED…
UNTIL NOW!

 

You won’t see any front-page headlines or ticker tape parades. No lead stories on NBC Nightly News or a single mention even hinting at the magnitude of this discovery.

 

You would think a cure for all disease that won the Nobel Prize in Medicine would make national headline news.

 

So why didn’t you hear about it?

 

Because it’s being actively suppressed by the very department of government that’s supposed to be looking out for your health —the FDA.

 

They’ve made it illegal for me to tell you about it.

 

But today I’m challenging the FDA.

 

I’m going to tell you how to use this breakthrough cure RIGHT NOW.

 

A group of molecular biologists discovered a way to “flip on a switch” inside your cells that makes it virtually impossible for any chronic disease to exist in that cell…

 

…and if you already have diseased cells, you can make them disappear as if they never existed at all.

 

This discovery won the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 2009. But thanks to the FDA and drug companies it never saw the light of day.

 

But there is good news.

 

I pioneered a safe and proven way to “turn on” these disease-killing genes in your body right now… without expensive therapies, doctor visits or interference from the FDA.

 

 

HOW DOES THIS WORK?

 

You are born with, and still have, a dormant ability in a sleeping gene so astonishingly powerful that it would appear to perform miracles.

 

What do I mean by that?

 

Inside every one of your cells, there are hibernating bits of DNA that can replace old, diseased cells with new, healthy cells.

 

Simply stated, that ability allows you to reverse virtually all chronic diseases like cancer, or allow you to reach 100-years-old without showing any signs of aging.

 

There is only one major obstacle. These genes get “turned off” while you’re still in your mother’s womb. But today we have overcome this.

 

We now have safe, proven and inexpensive technology to turn on these disease-cleansing genes… and that’s the REAL story the FDA is trying to stop me from telling you.

 

 

Why is the FDA so afraid of this information?

 

 

HARVARD “MIRACLE STUDY” MAKES OLD MICE YOUNG AGAIN

 

At the beginning of this Harvard experiment, the mice subjects were old in every measurable feature.

 

They had lost their intelligence. Every one of them had performed poorly on the standard memory tests. And, they all had atrophied or shrunken brains.

 

They had lost their desire for sexual activity and had become infertile. …

 

Not surprising considering the mice were the equivalent of humans in their 80s and 90s.

 

THEN, AS IF BY MIRACLE, EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THESE SIGNS OF AGING WAS COMPLETELY REVERSED.

 

Not only did their intelligence and memory come back, their shrunken brains actually grew back to normal size and structure.

 

They became sexually potent again and the females actually became fertile and produced healthy offspring again — at the equivalent of a very elder age. The males also produced new sperm cells, and their mates gave birth to larger litters.

 

 

And now I want YOU to have the option of using this technology to heal, re-charge and re-vitalize yourself and your family…

 

Here’s how it works.

 

THE “SWITCH” DR. DEPINHO TURNED ON, IS A GENE INSIDE YOUR CELL’S DNA

 

At the end of each strand of DNA is a little bit of genetic material called a telomere. The length of these telomeres determines how old or young your cells act.

 

As your cells divide, the telomeres get shorter, and your body produces cells that are older, weaker, and more decrepit.

 

It’s programmed old age, and everything that comes with it.

 

The shorter your telomeres, the “older” your cells and your body act, regardless of your actual age.

 

And wipe out disease in the process.

 

 

This switch is an enzyme called telomerase, and it programs your telomeres to get longer. As I mentioned, this “switch” is turned to the off position before you are born. But what we’ve discovered is a way to turn it back on and make your telomeres longer.

 

And when your telomeres get longer, you reactivate all the characteristics of youth.

 

NOW YOU HAVE A WAY OF REACTIVATING THIS MIRACLE ENZYME IN YOUR CELLS

 

 

During the course of their treatment, we saw remarkable changes. Changes like:

 

  • Incredibly fast and longer-lasting fat loss…

 

  • Sharper eyesight and improved vision…

 

  • Thin, graying hair turning black and lustrous…

 

  • Increased muscle mass and increased testosterone…

 

  • Bigger lung volume, with increased endurance and oxygen delivery…

 

  • Elimination of joint pain and improved flexibility…

 

  • Easing depression with a brighter, more positive mood, and an overwhelming sense of optimism…

 

 

That’s why I want to put these 5 FREE reports in your hands RIGHT NOW.

 

 

So when you begin your Gold Membership in Confidential Cures today, you’ll immediately save 21% off the regular price of $49.95.

READ ENTIRETY if you believe in “it’s too good to be true”.

 

There are several reviews of Dr. Sears’ handiwork. The reviews are crafted in such a way as to not being judgmentally harsh but leaves little doubt there is a big risk to using Dr. Sears’ alternative health products.

 

I’m going to excerpt SupplementPolice.com utilizing the bio intro. This SupplementPolice.com examines many of Dr. Sears’ best-selling products which I am going to skip. I am going to focus on the “Teloessence” category which examines Dr. Sears’ claims on telomeres. Telomeres is the selling emphasis in the Dr. Al Sears pitch to sell his remarkable cure-all with 5-free gifts for a simple discounted $39 buck annual subscription fee.

 

Then I’ll list the other reviews which all deliver it’s a risk attitude but a little different info with each review.

 

Al Sears MD Review

 

Al Sears MD is a medical doctor who calls himself “America’s Number One Board-certified Anti-Aging Pioneer.” His new subscription book series is called Confidential Cures and promises to help you cure diseases like cancer.

 

Who is Dr. Al Sears?

 

Dr. Al Sears MD is a naturopathic doctor who focuses on using alternative medicine and holistic remedies to help his patients live longer, happier, and healthier lives.

 

Dr. Sears currently runs a practice called the Center for Health and Wellness in Royal Palm Beach, Florida, where he claims to have helped over 25,000 patients. He conducts in-person consultations and recommends a holistic approach to health that is unavailable with modern medicine.

 

Over the years, Dr. Sears has written 15 books on health and wellness. He also created a lineup of nutritional supplements called Primal Force.

 

Dr. Sears claims to have appeared on ABC News, CNN, The History Chanel, National Geographic, Discovery Channel, and even ESPN for some reason.

 

In any case, Dr. Sears appears to be a legitimate doctor who runs a legitimate medical practice. …

 

 

At AlSearsMD.com, Dr. Sears wants to convince you to subscribe to his newsletter called Confidential Cures, which costs $39 per year. He also sells a lineup of supplements and dozens of other eBooks that promise various cures for aging.

 

What is AlSearsMD.com?

 

AlSearsMD.com is the online home of Dr. Al Sears MD. The website features a lengthy story about how President Ronald Reagan found a secret cure for cancer during his presidency.

 

 

Instead of dying from cancer, obviously, Reagan took a different approach. Dr. Sears claims he used something called the “8th Element Protocol”.

 

The 8th Element Protocol cured Reagan’s cancer without any visible signs of cancer treatment. He experienced no hair loss, no nausea, and no disfigurement from surgeries.

 

 

TeloEssence

 

Much of Dr. Sears’ work centers around telomeres, which are genes in your body that may be deactivated as you age. By eating the right foods and ingredients, you may be able to reactivate these genes and live a healthier life.

 

TeloEssence is a supplement specifically designed to activate your telomeres. It includes all of the following ingredients:

 

— Vitamin and Herb Blend: Vitamin D3, Vitamin C, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Folic Acid, Selenium, Magnesium Citrate, Trimethylglycine, Asian Ginseng, Kudzu, Milk Thistle Extract, Horny Goat Weed, Bacopa, Green Tea Extract, Cat’s Claw, Natural d-Mixed Tocotrienols, Resveratrol, pTerostilbene, Fenugreek, Citrulline, Mixed Tocotrienols, Gingko Extract, Gotu Kola, and Ashwaghanda.

 

— Amino Acid Proprietary Blend: Alpha-Ketoglutarate, Arginine, Acetyl L-Carnitine, Carnosine.

 

 

Final Thoughts: Should You Listen To Dr. Sears MD?

 

Dr. Sears MD is an interesting character: he claims to have helped over 25,000 people fight back against aging at his clinic in Royal Palm Beach, Florida. However, there’s very little information about Dr. Sears available online – including only a handful of reviews for his clinic.

 

The reviews that do appear online are not overly positive. Some reviews compliment the friendly staff and effective programs, while others claim they were disappointed by treatments that failed to work, were not covered by insurance, or were extremely expensive.

 

Dr. Sears also claims to have appeared on major news networks, including everything from The History Channel to ESPN, and yet none of this appears to be online. You would think there would be at least an online newspaper article about him.

 

But perhaps the biggest red flag about Dr. Sears MD is that he wholeheartedly promises his patients that he can cure their cancer:

 

“…6,100 independent studies confirm that my 8th Element Protocol: can cure ALL 213 types of cancer – at any stage.”

 

There’s no known cure for cancer. If there was a cure that singlehandedly cured every type of cancer in the world today, it certainly wouldn’t be sold in a $40 eBook online.

 

If you feel comfortable trusting alternative medical treatments, then Dr. Sears MD certainly has a lot of those treatments available. If you would rather trust modern medicine and scientific testing, however, then Dr. Sears MD may not be the right choice for you. READ ENTIRETY (Al Sears MD; SupplementPolice.com)

Sharia CANNOT Coexist in Western Law


John R. Houk

© February 9, 2018

An email sent by Maryam Namazie via the organization One Law for All addresses how the British government is handling the existence of Sharia courts in the United Kingdom (UK). As of this writing I’m have difficulty connecting with the website. Either http://onelawforall.org.uk/ is having server problems or there might be some kind of IP blocking involved. But the organization’s Facebook page is still up and here is some info from their Facebook About Page:

 

No Religious Laws
One Secular Law for All
Rights are for People not Beliefs

One Law for All was launched in 2008 to campaign against Sharia and religious laws in Britain and around the world. Sharia law is arbitrary and discriminatory against women and children in particular and works against equality, citizenship and secularism.

Under its family code, Sharia law treats the testimony of women as being worth half of that of a man, child custody is decided in favour of fathers regardless of the circumstances, women do not have the unilateral right to divorce as men do and violence against women is endorsed. Under its criminal code, there are over 100 offences punishable by death, including apostasy, homosexuality and adultery. Sharia courts in Britain decide on both civil and criminal matters.

Proponents argue Sharia law is a matter of choice; however, many women are pressured into using these courts. Moreover, violence and discrimination are not legitimate choices.

Whilst the far-Right blames ‘Muslim immigration’ for the implementation of Sharia law, it is READ THE REST

 

One Law for All’s apparent primary purpose is fighting the legitimization of Sharia Law in the UK as a tacit coexistent rule of law. In reality though the organization is Left Wing and is not friendly to any religious faith. This means they would not promote a Christian heritage in the UK.

 

Namazie politically is a Communist. As to religion she is an ex-Muslim atheist from Iran living in the UK. Since I am Christian, I don’t have a problem with Namazie’s virulent anti-Islam stand, BUT she is a militant atheist in which Christianity is on her hate-list too.

 

Nonetheless, Namazie and I are on the same page when it comes to Islam.

 

Namazie is concerned that the UK Home Secretary Amber Rudd has not gone far enough pertaining to rejecting Sharia courts as equal to the British rule of law. As an American, accepting anti-Western (and in the case of the USA – anti-Constitution) Sharia is in my belief must be anathema in our society and rule of law.

 

Here is the Executive Summary Home Secretary Rudd presented to Parliament (the whole pdf is 48 pages):

 

The independent review into the application of sharia law in England and Wales

Presented to Parliament by the Secretary of State for the Home Department by Command of Her Majesty

February 2018

 

Executive summary

 

In May 2016 the independent review into the application of sharia law in England and Wales was tasked with understanding whether, and the extent to which, sharia law is being misused or applied in a way that is incompatible with the law within sharia councils.

 

Sharia is an all encompassing term which includes not only law in the western sense of the word but religious observances such as fasting and prayer, ritual practices such as halal slaughter, and worship in general. Sharia is written jurisprudence and law developed on the basis of a diversity of opinions among jurists in the classical period of Islam. While many aspects of sharia have been modified or modernised in most Muslim countries, in the area of personal law, especially marriage and divorce, many Muslim societies still observe rulings of classical jurisprudence. The word sharia is used in diverse ways by Muslims and this leads to varying degrees of understanding and application.

 

This review was set up to focus exclusively on the work of sharia councils in England and Wales and not to look at sharia practices in general. These councils call themselves sharia councils because they deal with aspects of Islamic law. The review has collected written and oral evidence from a wide range of sources. These include a public call for evidence issued by the review Chair Professor Mona Siddiqui, and oral evidence sessions with users of sharia councils, women’s rights groups, academics and lawyers, as well as other key stakeholders.

 

There is no clear definition of what constitutes a sharia council. Sharia councils vary in size and make up. There is also no accurate statistic on the number of sharia councils, with estimates in England and Wales varying from 30 to 85. To the best of our knowledge, there are no sharia councils in Scotland. For the purposes of this review we are defining sharia councils as a voluntary local association of scholars who see themselves or are seen by their communities as authorised to offer advice to Muslims principally in the field of religious marriage and divorce.

 

Sharia councils have no legal status and no legal binding authority under civil law. Whilst sharia is a source of guidance for many Muslims, sharia councils have no legal jurisdiction in England and Wales. Thus if any decisions or recommendations are made by a sharia council that are inconsistent with domestic law (including equality policies such as the Equality Act 2010) domestic law will prevail. Sharia councils will be acting illegally should they seek to exclude domestic law. Although they claim no binding legal authority, they do in fact act in a decision-making capacity when dealing with Islamic divorce.

 

Common misconceptions around sharia councils often perpetuate owing to the use of incorrect terms such as referring to them as ‘courts’ rather than councils or to their members as ‘judges’.

 

These terms are used both in media articles but also on occasion by the sharia councils themselves. It is important to note that sharia councils are not courts and they should not refer to their members as judges. It is this misrepresentation of sharia councils as courts that leads to public misconceptions over the primacy of sharia over domestic law and concerns of a parallel legal system. The recommendations included in this report, such as changes to marriage law, are designed to promote equality between religions in ways that should challenge misconceptions of a parallel legal system and encourage integration.

 

In collecting its evidence the review looked to examine why sharia councils exist, who uses them and for what reasons. The evidence heard by this review indicates that the vast majority, in fact nearly all people using sharia councils, are women. In most of these cases (our evidence indicates over 90%) the women are visiting the council seeking an Islamic divorce. In attempting to understand what motivates women to use sharia councils the review found that there are many reasons why Muslim women seek an Islamic divorce. A key finding was that a significant number of Muslim couples fail to civilly register their religious marriages and therefore some Muslim women have no option of obtaining a civil divorce.

 

The review sought to understand what occurs at the sharia council and whether and to what extent the practices are discriminatory. The evidence collected by the review indicated a range of practices occurring in the sharia councils. The review found evidence of good practice but also clear evidence of bad practice. Furthermore, there is unanimous agreement among the sharia councils themselves that discriminatory practices do occur in some instances within the councils in England and Wales.

 

From the very beginning, the review panel established the principle that recommendations would be based collectively on the evidence it received rather than the personal opinions of the panel members. While there was broad and respectful consensus on most issues, this report also reflects the particular area where there was a level of disagreement.

 

It should also be noted at the outset that those proposing a ban on sharia councils provide no counter proposal or any solution for anyone seeking a religious divorce. It is clear from all the evidence that sharia councils are fulfilling a need in some Muslim communities. There is a demand for religious divorce and this is currently being answered by the sharia councils.

 

This demand will not end if the sharia councils are banned and closed down and could lead to councils going ‘underground’, making it even harder to ensure good practice and the prospect of discriminatory practices and greater financial costs more likely and harder to detect. It could also result in women needing to travel overseas to obtain divorces, putting themselves at further risk.

 

We consider the closure of sharia councils is not a viable option. However, given the recommendations also proposed in this report include the registration of all Islamic marriages as well as awareness campaigns it is hoped that the demand for religious divorces from sharia councils will gradually reduce over time. These key recommendations address the issue of current discriminatory practices identified within the sharia councils.

 

Here is One Law for All’s response.

As black and minority women and human rights campaigners, we voice our dismay at the outcome of the independent review on Sharia laws commissioned by the government in 2016. Although the government has rejected formal recognition (through regulation), the way has been left open for the Sharia courts to continue to exist in a no-man’s land where they continue to produce discriminatory parallel laws while posing as an acceptable alternative dispute mechanism. Now they will be strengthened by a review that has endorsed their existence.

 

At the outset, we feared a whitewash but what we have seen is worse. The review is superficial, narrow and secretive; and completely lacks credibility. We protested when the Home Office appointed a theologian to lead the review and two Imams as advisers. How absurd that the Home Office now claims that the review ‘was not tasked with considering theological issues, for example whether Islam and Sharia law treat women in an unequal way’. Why then appoint three people whose only qualification for the job was their status as religious scholars?

 

Any review that is based on interviewing only eight women and a handful of organisations; and that provoked a boycott from most of the organisations that deal with women adversely affected by religious laws, cannot be considered legitimate. Demands for the acceptance of Sharia laws to govern family matters are part of a wider fundamentalist and ultra conservative goal to normalise profoundly misogynist values in the law and other public spaces. Our front-line experience has found clear evidence that both the intent and the process of the Sharia courts is abusive and discriminatory; that the Sharia bodies are run by organisations with links to extremist organisations; and promote the full range of fundamentalist goals such as strict gender segregation, imposition of hijabs and other dress codes, homophobia, bigotry and discrimination against non-Muslims and Muslim dissenters, blasphemy laws and attacks on apostates.

 

Our research also shows that they do refer to ‘courts’ and ‘Judges’, because of a clear intention of establishing themselves as a parallel law which ‘good Muslims’ must adhere to. The review suggests that that they are ‘Councils’ only and thus sanitises them.

 

In order to arrive at its conclusions, the reviewers conducted no investigation and ignored evidence that would have undermined their conclusions. They ignored the wider political fundamentalist drive to undermine human rights. They also ignored a considerable body of evidence submitted to the Home Affairs Select Committee in Parliament by members of our coalition and others. For instance, Maryam Namazie submitted two statements in evidence which contained details of statements made by Islamic law ‘Judges’, that exposed their wider political agenda. Knowing that hate speech and discriminatory speech is regularly erased from websites once it has been exposed, she had taken screenshots of their statements. She stated in conclusion, ‘despite all efforts to package Sharia’s civil code as mundane, its imposition represents a concerted attempt by Islamists to gain further influence in Britain’. If the reviewers did not wish to draw on our submissions, they could have applied some diligence and researched it themselves. Why did they not do so?

 

The coalition also gathered detailed testimony from many women. Unlike the reviewers, we did not ask for evidence solely from women who had experience of sharia courts, although we met and interviewed many who had tried to get a divorce under ‘sharia law’, were deeply traumatised by the experience and experienced further violence and abuse of their rights. We also published and put in evidence to parliament, a devastating letter signed by over 300 abused and marginalised women from all religious backgrounds expressing their fear of being controlled by religious laws.

 

Sweeping statements are made about the “choice” that Muslim women make to approach such councils without giving any consideration to the highly constrained religious context in which that “choice” is made. The review is utterly silent on the crucial concept of ‘zina’ (sex outside marriage), the grave sin punishable by death in many Muslim countries. It is fear of ‘zina’ which compels many women, even those with civil divorces to seek an Islamic divorce. Procedural changes in sharia councils will not diminish their role in spreading this concept; to which they provide the only ‘solution’. That is why use of Sharia bodies is increasing. Evidence before the Home Affairs Select Committee makes clear that fundamentalists insist that a civil divorce cannot be final. Yet earlier generations of women had civil marriage (as well as a Muslim marriage contract) and were satisfied with a civil divorce. Increased religious bullying is a major reason for women’s recourse to sharia, not simply their ‘conscience’. Indeed, the form of Sharia which the theologians of the panel have failed to challenge is much more regressive than Muslim personal laws in Muslim majority countries.

 

Unlike the review, we have shown that women cannot engage with Sharia Councils or the Muslim Arbitration Tribunal in relation to their divorce without this also impacting on their rights and freedoms in other areas. Our research shows that Sharia Courts/ Councils deal with more than divorce – they impose ‘mediation’, promote polygamy and child marriage, and interfere with child custody and criminal proceedings in relation to domestic violence. The review made no serious attempt to investigate these issues.

 

The review stands in direct contrast to the devastating observations made by Dame Louise Casey in her report in 2016 “women in some communities are facing a double onslaught of gender inequality, combined with religious, cultural and social barriers preventing them from accessing even their basic rights as British residents.”

 

A forensic examination of the operation of Sharia in Britain lays bare what fundamentalists do to achieve their goals, not merely what they think. We do not accuse them simply of ‘thought crimes’ but of promoting crimes and human rights violations.

 

The review is a botched attempt at consultation established with flawed terms of reference and an explicit disregard for gender discrimination. The government and the reviewers have failed the women most affected and ignored the concerns of rights advocates.

 

We will be providing a more detailed submission. Meanwhile, we call on you, as Home Secretary, to ensure that none of the recommendations contained in the review are implemented without consultation with those advocates who are able to make clear connections with extremism, fundamentalism and inequality. The government has, so far, failed in its duty to make an equality impact assessment, which it needs to do with the full weight of evidence before it. Continued indifference to the government’s duty to respect, protect and fulfil human rights will leave us in no doubt that there is no change to the social contract in which women’s rights are traded off as part of a process of appeasement of fundamentalists and extremists.

 

We look forward to your response.

Black Robed Regiment: ARISE!

SPRINGFIELD, Mass., Jan. 30, 2018 /Christian Newswire/ — In the Revolutionary War, pastors who joined the Continental Army were called the Black Robed Regiment, and there were many because they understood the need for Godly Leadership to defeat tyranny. Without them we would not have become the first and greatest Constitutional Republic in the history of the world: a nation founded upon the Bible and a Covenental Oath called the Declaration of Independence.

Today, America faces a comparable test. President Trump’s miraculous victory in 2016 saved us from subjection to the Clinton Crime Family and provided a window of reprieve in which to take back our country from the predatory leftist elites of the deep state, an adversary far more insidious than King George.

Under the banner of “Resistance,” all the powers and principalities of the hard left, deploying all their fascist tactics, are waging a massive political offensive and massing for the Great Election War of 2018. Their goal is to crush our rebellion, oust our president, and finish their task of subsuming Christian America under global socialist control.

Today we face a critical test of Christian courage and resolve. The Black Robed Regiment MUST rise again and provide Godly leadership on America’s political battlefield.

As a proud member of that regiment, I issue a challenge to every Bible-believing pastor: ARISE BROTHERS! Enter the fray at this critical juncture! Run for political office wherever you are, but especially in places where the Godless Left has the tightest stranglehold. Run to win! But even where that end is unlikely, run sacrificially, willing to govern if God grants the victory, but forcing the adversary to expend resources defending ground they thought was secure. Shun political “norms” and expectations, using your platform to boldly shine the light of the Gospel and Biblical truth into the darkness of the political realm. Bravely defy media mockery and intimidation to give hope and encouragement to every believer, seeker and conservative ally under the yoke of liberal oppression.

In this I am leading by example, running aggressively as a pro-life, pro-constitution conservative against the most popular governor in America (a pro-abortion, anti-family, pork-shoveling Republican) – in ultra-liberal Massachusetts.

In God’s eyes we win just by standing up to speak plain truth without apology or equivocation. So, for the Love of God, our Families, and our Fellow Americans, BLACK ROBED REGIMENT: ARISE!

Dr. Scott Lively is a pastor and constitutional law attorney running as a Republican for Governor of Massachusetts who may be reached by email at sdllaw@gmail.com or at 413-250-0984. He will formally issue this challenge on behalf of the national Christian activist group Reclaiming America for Christ on February 6th, 6:30PM at Fairview Baptist Church Fellowship Hall, 1230 N Sooner Rd, Edmond, Oklahoma. He will be joined by Pastor Dan Fisher, Candidate for Governor of Oklahoma and author of Bringing Back the Black Robed Regiment (2013).

Dems Want Social Platform Censorship by Blaming Russians – AGAIN


John R. Houk

© January 25, 2018

Yesterday I stumbled upon a Fox News story in which Dems Senator Feinstein and Rep. Schiff have publicly called for Twitter, Facebook and now I read – Google, to investigate Russian bots spreading the meme #ReleaseTheMemo. My least favorite Fox host Shepherd Smith seemed to move story to agree with the Dems. Here’s the 4:30 minute segment on Youtube:

 

VIDEO: Top Democrats claim Russian bots are pushing #ReleaseTheMemo

 

Posted by Fox News

Published on Jan 24, 2018

 

Rep. Schiff and Sen. Feinstein say the classified memo prepared by staffers working for Devin Nunes is misleading and is being pushed online as part of a smear campaign against law enforcement officials investigating Team Trump; insight from Axios reporter Alayna Treene.

 

FOX News Channel (FNC) is a 24-hour all-encompassing news service dedicated to delivering breaking news as well as READ THE REST

 

In essence my first reaction the Dems were trying to get off the hook about corruption among Obama/Hillary cadres in the FBI and DOJ. Indeed, after Googling “Russian Bots,” I found MSM after MSM site pushing the Dem meme of Russian Bots. Just like loyal Leftist Pravda spreading Communist propaganda, the MSM pushed the Dem assertion Russia was involved in the American legal system to taint the FBI and the Mueller investigation purportedly investigating the Trump Campaign for President colluded with Russia to win said Campaign.

 

I felt the Dems were pulling the Russia-Russia-Russia load of crap to deflect from the real collusion story of Dems and Dem-favoring FBI and DOJ trying to discredit President Trump for an idiotic excuse to impeach him on FALSE evidence.

 

It turns out I am CORRECT! The Daily Caller picked up on a story from the Left-leaning Daily Beast which substantiates that an overwhelming majority of the viral message of “#ReleaseTheMail” was driven by red-blooded Americans rather than Russian Bots:

 

DC VIDEO: No Russian Bots …

http://dailycaller.com/2018/01/23/no-russian-bots-note-behind-releasethememo/

 

 

According to The Beast:

 

A knowledgeable source says that Twitter’s internal analysis has thus far found that authentic American accounts, and not Russian imposters or automated bots, are driving #ReleaseTheMemo. There are no preliminary indications that the Twitter activity either driving the hashtag or engaging with it is either predominantly Russian.

 

In short, according to this source, who would not speak to The Daily Beast for attribution, the retweets are coming from inside the country. (No, Russian Bots Weren’t Behind The #ReleaseTheMemo Hashtag; By Chuck Ross; Daily Caller; 1/23/18 6:27 PM)

 

Now you realize that Twitter management is not exactly a Right-leaning Social Platform, right? Ergo, you must understand that the Dems – particularly Senator Feinstein and Rep. Schiff – are calling for Twitter, Facebook and Google to censor Conservative dialog on the Social Platforms used by Americans.

 

The best details I have found pertaining to the Dem Fake News propaganda trying to Censor my fellow Conservatives is at The Federalist.

The Russia ‘Fake News’ Scare Is All About Chilling Speech

UNITED STATES – JUNE 16: Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., speaks during a news conference in the Capitol on Democratic on gun control measures, June 16, 2016. (Photo By Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call)

Last week Republicans began to call for the release of a memo authored by House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes that purports to lay out a series of abuses connected to the FBI surveillance of Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. As often happens these days, a Twitter hashtag evolved around the effort, #ReleaseTheMemo, and was widely retweeted by Republicans and elected officials.

 

It didn’t take long for a report to emerge claiming that Russian-sponsored Twitter accounts and bots were the real driving force behind the viral call for the release of the memo. Without worrying about the veracity of this convenient claim, all the usual suspects giddily spread the story across social media — probably because they have such a deep reverence for truth in the Era of Trump.

 

The report also prompted Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Rep. Adam Schiff, both Democrats, to pull out every fearmongering catchphrase available to demand that Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg perform an “in-depth forensic examination” on the “ongoing attack by the Russian government through Kremlin-linked social media actors directly acting to intervene and influence our democratic process.”

 

It’s difficult, it seems, for some people to embrace neutral principles nowadays. But if you genuinely believe that Donald Trump’s distasteful tweets are attacks on the foundations of free expression, how can you not be alarmed by a pair of powerful elected officials demanding social media companies hand over information about their users? What would they say if the president had sent a letter to Google insisting they give the executive branch an “in-depth forensic examination” of his political opponent’s searches?

 

As it turns out, reports today say that Twitter’s internal analysis found that it was mostly Americans, not creepy Slavic mind-control robots, who were behind the hashtags. Not that it really matters, anyway. If a group of Americans have a legitimate issue to rally around, how are they supposed to control what outsiders do? It’s not as if #ReleaseTheMemo was a secret or illegal. Republican politicians were openly using it.

 

Yet, if Feinstein and Schiff had their way, Twitter and Facebook would have moved to quash the #ReleaseTheMemo hashtag for what turned out to be apparently solely partisan reasons. Sounds like a power that can be abused. Even if the two had been genuinely troubled by Russian hashtags — yes, suspend your disbelief — the source of fake news is not always easily discernible. Sometimes it comes to you from an anonymous Russian bot, and sometimes it’s retweeted by a prominent journalist.

 

Democrats have manufactured panic over amateurish Russian propaganda to not only claim that Vlad Putin was “meddling” in the election, but also to argue that interference had the power to turn the election to Trump. With this risible idea in hand, they have created paranoia about social media interactions and rationalized infringements on expression.

 

Not long before demanding forensic investigations into hashtags, Feinstein was demanding Twitter, Facebook, and Google more tightly restrict its content, threatening, “Do something about it — or we will.” Democrats have attempted to control interactions through Fairness Doctrines or the IRS, and now the Russia scare. Part of living in a free country is dealing with messy, ugly misinformation.

 

 

Lots of people in the United States seem pretty impressed by how they do things in Europe. In Britain, Prime Minister Theresa May is launching “a rapid response unit” run by the state to “battle the proliferation of ‘fake news’ online.” A “National Security Communications Unit” will be tasked to combat misinformation — as if it has either the power or ability to do so. In France, President Emmanuel Macron is working on a plan to combat “fake news,” which includes the power to “emergency block” websites during elections. What could possibly go wrong.

 

Me? I’d rather we live with Russian troll bots feeding us nonsense than authoritarian senators dictating how we consume news. I mean, has anyone yet produced a single voter who lost his or her free will during the 2016 election because he had a Twitter interaction with an employee of a St. Petersburg troll farm? Or do voters tend to seek out the stories that back their own worldviews?

 

If your argument is that American are uninformed and easily misled, I’m with you. Just look at all the people who believe that a $46,000 buy on Facebook by the Russians was enough to destroy the pillars of our democracy. But if you want to live in a free and vibrant nation, you have to live with the externalities of that freedom.

Release FISA Memo to American Public


John R. Houk

© January 21, 2018

 

As of the moment I’m typing this, Schumer and Pelosi have been leading the Dems in a government shutdown in extortion for absolute amnesty for Illegal Aliens while giving ZERO that the Republican majority has electorally promised.

 

I see this as deflection for two things the Dems fear:

 

1. The Dem promised Armageddon over Trump tax-cuts NEVER came; indeed, a booming economy has arisen in the stock market and for middle class employees pay raises and/or bonuses have mushroomed to benefit family living.

 

2. The worst Dem fear is news that will undoubtedly affect the 2018 mid-term election to the benefit of the GOP. The basis of Dem fear is a 4-page mem exposing criminal corruption by FBI/DOJ Dem-favoring agents planning a fake evidence against President Trump.

In the first instance, even after lying Dem propaganda, the evidence economic prosperity is too huge for the MSM to cover-up from the public.

 

In the second instance, the lying Dem propaganda machine is being fired up to discredit the 4-page FISA Memo as either distorted or based on mitigating other evidence making to the Memo much too difficult for the stupid public (Dem thinking – NOT GOP!) to comprehend correctly.

 

ERGO, if you are stupid join the Dems in preventing the public from knowing how corrupt the American Left has made agencies created to keep harm from the public. IF you a part of the brilliant public of WE THE PEOPLE and desire a voice on how government is operated, then DEMAND your Congressman to release the FISA Memo and make the appropriate vote in November 2018.

 

How to locate Congressman of your District: Use this link – https://www.house.gov/representatives/find-your-representative – enter your Zip Code. (H/T Matt Forney)

 

Your Zip will take your Congressman providing snail mail address and phone number. If you look for the envelope symbol and click it you will be taken to an electronic method of contacting your Representative (either a contact form or email. Matt Forney provides a sample script for speaking to your Congressman or the Congressman’s phone gatekeeper.

 

Below is a Facebook post that inspired my thoughts. Below that is a couple of Gateway Pundit posts. The Gateway Pundit is following the FISA Memo issue closely. I suggest you visit often.

Tick..Tock..Tick..Tock. America, are you ready for a great shock?? No. It’s not about the expected Schumer Shutdown. I speak of the FISA Memo that will in short time be released to the public who have a right to know. It’s called transparency. Those on the Intel Committee who have read are shocked by the abuse of power that they did see. No one in the TYRANT’S regime ever thought that this four page document would ever see the light of day. Apparently those who were part of this criminal conspiracy never heard that CRIME DOES NOT PAY.

 

In the criminal syndicate that is run by Bill and Dastardly Hillary they always seem to get away with any and all accountability. This time it will be a tad different. They and those in the FBI will not get away free. You can comprise your list of those who will be tainted. Never since the days of Watergate has there been a scandal like this. We are told that the scope of this is far and wide. Before long we will have a picture before us that is fully painted. It is said that assumptions should not be made for when you do it can lead to trouble. In the DEEP STATE everyone thought Hillary would surely win. That was the prevailing view in the environs that is the DC bubble.

 

In a Clinton Presidency everything would have been hidden. But she didn’t win and now a whole of disgusting characters can very well wind up in prison. How ironic it is to find that everyone who boasted about their being not a whiff of scandal in the previous regime will now see exposed one that shows the scope of criminality heretofore never seen. You and I are certainly not surprised to find the eight years of Trump’s predecessor was far from clean and pristine.

 

It is unfathomable to think that in the days ahead as more and more details are released that this story can be ignored. I am confident that justice will be done. A lack of it we, as a country, can ill afford. My only concern is this Attorney General That we have in place is so weak and hesitant. If he dares to be intimidated by the Democrats from pursuing these alleged criminals we would all find it utterly abhorrent. Can we trust his assistant AG. I certainly doubt he can be trusted. One more thing. If this Mueller Investigation is not ended post haste you will have an America in a fit of rage and thoroughly disgusted!!

Sara Carter: Explosive FISA Memo Could Be Released to the Public THIS WEEK! (VIDEO)

On Saturday Rep. Dave Joyce announced Saturday that the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSIC) had launched the process to release the explosive FBI-FISA-Russia classified memo.

 

 

 

The 4 page memo contains evidence that the Obama administration used FISA warrants to spy on both the Trump campaign and transition team — charges Obama officials have long denied.

 

On Sunday morning investigative reporter Sara Carter told FOX and Friends Weekend that the memo could be released to the public this week.

 

Sara Carter on Fox News-FISA Memo

 

Sara Carter: The House Intelligence Committee is going to hold another vote. This vote will be made for the public… They’re sure it’s going to pass because Republicans are going to pass on the party line to make this available to the public. Then the memo will go to the president where the president will have five days to decide whether or not to declassify the memo. And what I’m being told from my sources he will declassify that memo for the public. They’re actually hoping the memo gets declassified very soon, the latest I’ve heard is the end of the month but the soonest could be anytime this week.

 

It ought to be an exciting week then!

[Blog Editor: The following is a transcript of the video that appears originally at Youtube post but is copy & pasted at the Gateway Pundit. I’m using the GP version because I like the emphasis.]

 

Partial transcript provided by Grabien:

 

CABRERA: “Let me ask you about the Russia investigation. I can’t have you here and not. Especially given how much we talked about it in the first year of the presidency. And now if you turn on any conservative media, they keep talking about this Nunez memo, the chairman of the house intelligence committee, that he’s put out there and many Republicans have taken a look at it and they want it made public. Can you tell us what exactly is it?”

 

SCHIFF: “It is essentially a set of talking points that the Republican Intel staff drafted. Based on the highly classified materials which most of the Republican members were forced to acknowledge. They’ve not even read. So they don’t know how distorted these talking points are. But as part of the narrative they want to push out. Interestingly enough, they’ve made common cause once again with Russian bots because Russian bots are pushing their narrative out there. It’s in a redux of the campaign. We have Assange and Wikileaks and Russian trolls and bots saying, you know, hash tag whatever the GOP narrative is. That ought to tell you a lot about what’s driving this. And that is –”

 

CABRERA: “Why not allow peel to look at it and let Americans make the decision for themselves about whether it’s useful information or not?”

 

SCHIFF: “Well, because the American people unfortunately don’t have the underlying materials and therefore they can’t see how distorted and misleading this document is.The Republicans are not saying make the underlying materials available to the public. They just want to make this spin available to the public. I think that spin, which is a attack on the FBI, is just designed to attack the FBI and Bob Mueller to circle the wagons for the White House. And that’s a terrible disservice to the people, hard working people at the bureau, but more than that, it’s a disservice to the country.”

 

In other words, Schiff believes Americans are too stupid to understand the memo.

 

As The Gateway Pundit‘s Cristina Laila reported, Schiff is in full blown panic mode as release of the memo looms. The Democrat lawmaker is fiercely working to block Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes from exposing “shocking” FISA abuses that took place during the 2016 presidential election.

The Great Negotiator


Justin Smith and many Conservatives looking at President Trump’s willingness to negotiate on allowing illegal aliens to remain in America is viewed as a betrayal of one his campaign promises.

 

In my humble opinion some kind of give and take is necessary to end legislative gridlock. So, if illegals are proven working individuals that pay taxes, I don’t have a problem with amnesty. HOWEVER, if illegal aliens are living on taxpayer social programs, those illegal aliens need to receive the boot.

 

ALSO, if the Dems will not negotiate on effective border control – e.g. A WALL – Then blame the Dems and give all illegal aliens the boot. If illegal aliens cry racism, they should direct their anger toward recalcitrant Dems.

 

Thus, I am not totally on board with Justin, but in some ways, I am willing to be harsher with the blame falling squarely on the Dems.

The Great Negotiator

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 1/13/2018 4:28 PM

 

The negotiations on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), opened under a false sense of urgency by President Trump, the “stable genius” and “great negotiator”, and sixteen senators and seven House members, on Tuesday January 9, 2018 in an ineffectual move to protect 800,000 DACA recipients from potential deportation, once DACA ends on March 5th. These negotiations represent the lowest moment of the Trump presidency, nothing more and nothing less than another amnesty for illegal aliens and the Democrats’ first step towards a full amnesty for nearly forty million illegal aliens (government stats 11 to 12 million), a betrayal of America.

 

If the proposed Dream Act of 2017, the replacement bill of choice, introduced by Senators Dick Durbin (D-ILL) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is any indication of the legislative “solution”, America will be forced to give 3.3 million illegal aliens a conditional lawful permanent resident status. Roughly 1.8 million would certainly become naturalized citizens over the next decade, if not sooner, with voting rights.

 

What happened to President Trump’s 2016 campaign promise to deport all illegal aliens?

 

The switch came after his advisors told him that this DACA amnesty is popular with both Democrats and liberal Republicans. He probably also noted left-leaning polls, like in Politico, that show 54 percent of Americans want to give the “Dreamers” a path to citizenship.

 

I stated in October 2015, that “Trump’s values shift like the changing of one’s underwear from day to day, depending on his personal agenda and who had his ear at the moment”. Ann Coulter, a conservative journalist, seemed to concur, as she recently stated, “The president cares only about his press, has no grasp of details of policy, and simply agrees with the last person to speak.”

 

Under no illusions, one might wish to see our leaders vote to deport all illegal aliens, but the reality of the matter suggests some form of amnesty will be passed eventually, unless there is a loud and massive opposition immediately voiced. While House Republicans are forcefully pushing President Trump’s demands on the wall and heightened security, along with the addition of thousands of federal immigration enforcement officers and judges and E-Verify, through the Goodlatte-McCaul bill, the Senate is prepared to give amnesty in exchange for nothing.

 

The Goodlatte-McCaul bill also ends chain migration and the diversity visa lottery, which allowed the last two Islamic terrorists into the country and the attacks on New York City. It allows the Justice Department to withhold grants from sanctuary cities too.

 

It should also be noted, that after the Department of Homeland Security detained a DACA recipient with gang ties, early in 2017, it acknowledged revoking the DACA status of over 1500 recipients, due to criminal conviction or gang affiliation. How many other criminals have evaded the department’s scrutiny?

 

To his credit, President Trump stated: “It has to be a bill where we’re able to secure our border. Drugs are pouring into our country at a record pace. A lot of people coming in that we can’t have.”

 

Congress could accomplish the same things, without granting a blanket amnesty, if they really wanted to do so, couldn’t they? But the liberals of both parties aren’t working for America, are they?

 

Curiously, the Great Negotiator’s negotiating skills are less than impressive, given Republicans hold the House, the Senate and the presidency. It is the Democrats, not the president, who are driving a hard bargain.

 

The Dreamers have no right to be here in the first place, since they or their parents broke U.S. law, and they deserve that right even less, when they display 1794 maps of Mexico and wave the Mexican flag in our streets. They have no say over anything America chooses to grant them; and yet, these Dreamers beseech our Congress for America’s solicitude and benevolent care, while standing on the steps of our state houses and at the Capital in D.C. and demand that any DACA replacement legislation be a “clean” bill.

 

During the meeting, when Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) asked President Trump if he would “be agreeable” to a “clean” bill, it was obvious that he didn’t understand that meant leaving out his demands, like more border security and the wall, because he replied: “Yeah … I would like to do that. Go ahead. I think a lot of people would like to see that, but I think we have to do DACA first.”

 

Representative Kevin McCarthy, a liberal Republican, interceded, fortunately. He clarified for the President that he was, in fact, acquiescing to an amnesty bill absent any border security provisions.

 

Later, flanked by Senator Dick Durbin (D-ILL) and Representative Steny Hoyer (D-MD), President Trump said: “We’ll do DACA and we can certainly start comprehensive immigration reform the following afternoon. Okay? We’ll take an hour off and then we’ll start.” Whether the president understood it or not, “comprehensive immigration reform” stands for amnesty.

 

To be clear, Congress has no moral or legal obligation or responsibility to grant amnesty to anyone who violated our immigration laws or knowingly put their children in an awful legal predicament. Let the March 5th deadline pass, let deportations proceed, and let the Dreamers sort it out, case by case, in immigration court, like they should have done over all these years.

 

Complicating negotiations further is a decision by a liberal activist judge in San Francisco on Tuesday evening, January 9th, that temporarily banned the Trump administration from ending DACA. Until Congress takes immigration policy matters out of the Courts’ jurisdiction, invoking that right under Article III of the Constitution, our borders will never be fully secured and illegals will continue to arrive at our borders en masse.

 

This DACA bill and any general amnesty for the total millions of other illegal aliens helps and benefits the illegal alien population and the Democratic Party only. Within a year of being granted residency or a path to citizenship, activist judges will grant full citizenship, and the bulk of these illegals will expand the Democratic voter base, setting aside all of Trump’s “wins” and border security gains; and Democratic Socialists will get to take permanent control of U.S. elections, laws and governments, for decades to come.

 

A recently leaked memo from the Center For American Progress reads, in part: “The fight to protect Dreamers is not only a moral imperative, it is also  a critical component to the Democratic Party’s electoral success … “.

 

An attempt to destroy our borders forever more is still underway as “elite” liberals from both parties, backed by U.S. and global billionaires, seek to force American citizens towards a regional and then global governance. They present America a false solution, in these DACA proposals, on the pretext it serves America’s interests and does not harm our society at large, for their own self-interest, and these members of Congress, who are supposed to represent Americans, not illegal aliens, are eroding and undermining the sanctity of the entire legal system and, by extension, our Republic.
