Twelve Republicans cross the floor to vote with open-borders Democrats

SEE: below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
As outrage spread over the latest American to be murdered by an illegal alien, the U.S. Senate voted Thursday to overturn President Trump’s commonsense emergency declaration to free up federal funds to build a wall that may have kept that murderer back in Mexico.
By a vote of 59 to 41, the Republican-dominated Senate approved a resolution disapproving of Trump’s emergency declaration as 12 GOP senators joined Democrats in what amounts to an official scolding of the president. On Feb. 26 the Democrat-controlled House approved the disapproval resolution introduced by leftist Congressman Joaquin Castro (D-Texas) on a vote of 245 to 182.
Trump has promised to veto the resolution when it arrives on his desk and it seems unlikely that opponents will be able to gather the two-thirds supermajority in both chambers of Congress needed to overturn the veto.
After the Senate vote, Trump tweeted, “VETO!” followed by “I look forward to VETOING the just passed Democrat inspired Resolution which would OPEN BORDERS while increasing Crime, Drugs, and Trafficking in our Country. I thank all of the Strong Republicans who voted to support Border Security and our desperately needed WALL!”
President Donald Trump invoked the National Emergencies Act of 1976 on Feb. 15 as Congress gave final approval to the $333 billion omnibus spending bill that funds the U.S. government through the federal fiscal year-end of Sept. 30. The fiscal measure provides $1.375 billion for 55 miles of border barriers in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, well below the $5.7 billion Trump and the $25 billion he originally said was needed. The emergency declaration moves around $6.7 billion in funding that was previously appropriated for other projects. In his new budgetary blueprint provided to Congress days ago, the president is seeking another $8.6 billion to build the border wall.
Those Republicans who bucked the president generally offered an unconvincing excuse why they did so. They claimed that it was unconstitutional for Trump to redirect existing funds appropriated by Congress for the wall because lawmakers turned down most of the wall funding he requested.
But this specious argument ignores the existence of the National Emergencies Act, a statute frequently invoked by presidents ever since it was enacted. In federal law, statutes are presumed to be constitutional and no one appears to have challenged this act before Trump became president. Contrary to the defectors’ lame line of thinking, Trump didn’t go against the will of Congress – in fact, he acted in accordance with the express will of Congress which, when Gerald Ford was in the White House, gave presidents the power to declare emergencies within certain parameters. If lawmakers are uncomfortable with the president possessing the power to move appropriated monies around, they should repeal the law that Congress passed instead of hiding behind dishonest, dumb reasoning.
Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) said he was voting for the resolution despite wanting the wall to be built. “To make clear, a border fence, a border barrier is a policy that I support, wholeheartedly, unequivocally.”
Declaring a national emergency to use funds already appropriated “sets a dangerous, new precedent,” Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) said on the Senate floor.
“No president has ever used what’s called the National Emergencies Act in this way. As a result, it opens the door for future presidents to implement just about any policy they want and to take funding from other areas Congress has already decided on without Congress’ approval.”
Except that Democrat presidents already act recklessly without regard to the Constitution and the rule of law, even without the National Emergencies Act. President Obama informally amended the Obamacare statute multiple times to suit his purposes, ignoring the language of the law or inventing passages that didn’t exist. Obama created the blatantly unconstitutional Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy with the stroke of a pen after admitting no president could create such a program by executive fiat.
In other words, that ship sailed long ago.
Apart from Lee and Portman, the other misguided Republicans voting to disapprove the emergency declaration were Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, Roy Blunt of Missouri, Susan Collins of Maine, Jerry Moran of Kansas, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Mitt Romney of Utah, Marco Rubio of Florida, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, Roger Wicker of Mississippi, and Rand Paul of Kentucky.
The same day the Senate was voting, nationally syndicated radio host Dana Loesch denounced sanctuary policies after illegal alien and gang member Carlos Eduardo Arevalo Carranza, 24, was arrested this week in the brutal stabbing death of San Jose, California resident Bambi Larson, 59, whose dead body was discovered in her home Feb. 28. Carranza’s criminal record included battery of an officer, burglary, and methamphetamine possession. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) had issued nine detainer requests asking jailers to hold him so ICE could investigate his immigration status before he was let loose on society.
Carranza was first arrested in the U.S. in 2013 for unlawfully sneaking into Texas. He was deported to Mexico. He was subsequently arrested 10 times and convicted of various offenses, including drug possession, battery, false imprisonment, and burglary. At the time of his arrest, Carranza was on probation.
“Why are sanctuary city advocates making excuses for thugs like these?” she said on “Fox and Friends.”
“Innocent people are paying in blood for the sanctuary city policies that Democrats – including all of the 2020 Democrat presidential primary contenders— are supporting.”
California’s unprecedented sanctuary laws keep Carranza on the streets committing crimes. Those laws obstruct federal immigration laws by shielding its 2.4 million illegal aliens from ICE. Federal prosecutors are considering filing criminal charges against elected officials harboring illegal aliens in sanctuary jurisdictions, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen told the Senate Judiciary Committee a year ago.
The sanctuary movement gave illegal aliens permission to rob, rape, and murder Americans by, among other things, stigmatizing immigration enforcement and characterizing it as somehow racist. Some left-wingers use the dreadful euphemism “civil liberties safe zones” to describe sanctuary jurisdictions. The phrase deliberately blurs the distinction between citizens and non-citizens by implying illegal aliens somehow possess a civil right to be present in the U.S.
The Trump administration is suing California over its “sanctuary state” laws that punish compliance with federal immigration laws and provide legal cover for corrupt officials to continue brazenly flouting immigration laws and interfering with federal agents trying to enforce them.
The federal lawsuit targets three statutes curbing the power of California’s state and local law enforcement to hold, question, and transfer detainees at the request of immigration authorities, and punish employers for cooperating with those authorities. The laws also impose draconian restrictions on communication between local police and federal immigration enforcement, including information regarding when criminal aliens are scheduled to be released from local jails.
And if the congressional disapproval of President Trump’s long overdue emergency declaration is sustained, plenty more illegal aliens will invade our country and seek sanctuary in California and other lawless Democrat strongholds.


New Zealand PM condemns Christchurch mosque attacks

SEE:;  republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
The Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and its allies have for years been trying to shut down all opposition to jihad violence and Sharia oppression of women, gays, and others. They have succeeded in fooling many people into thinking that it is “bigotry” and “racism” to oppose jihad terror, and have made those who discuss the motivating ideology behind jihad terror toxic in the public square. Now Hamas-linked CAIR is attempting to use the New Zealand massacre to achieve total victory: the complete closure of all media platforms to foes of jihad terror and Sharia oppression.
In its press conference on the New Zealand mosque shootings, CAIR top dog Nihad Awad named Donald Trump as responsible for the massacre, despite the fact that in the murderer’s insane “manifesto,” he asks himself: “Were/are you a supporter of Donald Trump?,” and answers: “As a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose? Sure. As a policymaker and leader? Dear god no.” The “symbol of renewed white identity” part is all that the media is quoting. He never says he was incited to violence by Trump, or says anything about Trump and Muslims at all. Awad also named Pamela Geller and me: “Years ago when another terrorist attacked in Norway he quoted islamophobes like Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller.” Yes, he also quoted Barack Obama and John F. Kennedy and Charles Darwin and a host of others. He said he was inspired to violent actions by al-Qaeda. Awad does not, of course, say anything about that.
Anyway, CAIR’s press conference was a full-court press for censorship, and it painted, yet again, a large target on our backs for increasingly unhinged and violent Leftists, as well as jihadis. CAIR calls for a total silencing on all platforms of so-called “hate groups,” i.e., those who dare to note that jihad terrorists are inspired by Islamic texts and teachings. And it will not be at all surprising if they succeed in getting us completely silenced. If and when we are, however, the jihad will not stop. There just won’t be anyone around who dares to oppose it.

They were also charged with kidnapping. This group was planning to train children to become school shooters, all in the cause of jihad.
“Feds charge 5 from New Mexico compound, where 11 children were found, with terror, kidnapping offenses,” by Kathleen Joyce, Fox News, March 14, 2019:
The residents of a makeshift New Mexico compound — where 11 emaciated children were found during an August raid — were charged by federal authorities Wednesday with terror, kidnapping and firearms offenses.
“The indictment alleges that the defendants conspired to provide material support in preparation for violent attacks against federal law enforcement officers and members of the military,” Assistant Attorney General John C. Demers for the Department of Justice’s National Security Division said.
Jany Leveille, 36, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 40, Hurjah Wahhaj, 38, Subhanah Wahhaj, 36, and Lucas Morton, 41, were charged “with federal offenses related to terrorism, kidnapping and firearms violations,” the Department of Justice said in a press release. In the original indictment, Leveille was also charged with “possessing firearms and ammunition as an alien illegally and unlawfully in the United States.”
The suspects were previously charged by indictment on Sept. 11 “with a conspiracy relating to the possession of firearms and ammunition by an alien illegally and unlawfully in the United States,” the DOJ said.
“The superseding indictment alleges a conspiracy to stage deadly attacks on American soil,” U.S. Attorney John C. Anderson said in a statement. “These allegations remind us of the dangers of terrorism that continue to confront our nation, and the allegation concerning the death of a young child only underscores the importance of prompt and effective intervention by law enforcement. I commend our law enforcement partners for their ongoing diligence and outstanding work in identifying and disabling imminent threats of targeted violence.”…
The defendants allegedly conspired to “provide material support in preparation for violent attacks against officers and employees” of the U.S. Siraj Ibn Wahhaj and Hujrah Wahhaj “gathered firearms and ammunition” and transported people across state lines “and constructed a training compound where they stored firearms and ammunition.” Leveille and Morton were accused of trying to recruit others.
The superseding indictment charged Leveille, Hurjah Wahhaj, Subhanah Wahhaj and Morton with “kidnapping and conspiracy to commit kidnapping.” They allegedly kidnapped a child under the age of 18 in Georgia and took him to New Mexico “where they concealed and held the child, resulting in the child’s death,” the press release stated.
Leveille, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj and Morton were charged with “conspiring to attack and kill officers and employees of the United States,” the statement read….



A tribute to my father who passed 21 years ago on March 15 —for his courageous battle against the Soviet Empire.

Jamie Glazov
SEE: below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
One day, when I was nine years old, my father and I were on our way to Church. As we neared the entrance, I spat on the ground. Reflexively, my dad’s arm shot out across my chest like a railway barrier, blocking my motion forward. We stood there, frozen in time, for some three seconds until my father uttered, in a very serious but patient way: “It is ok to spit outside of KGB headquarters, but never in front of a place such as this.” I registered the message and indicated my understanding — and we proceeded on our way.
That was my dad’s moral clarity and sharp, quick-witted way with words; and the sacred values that spawned those words made a profound impression on me from the moment of my birth. I was born into a family of Russian dissidents who put their clenched fists up and went toe-to-toe with the Evil Empire.
Throughout my youth, my dad shared many stories with me, which included how he had always been aware, even in his youth, that he existed in a slave camp masquerading as a country and that he perpetually dreamed of escaping it. He spent his young years studying maps, trying to decipher which body of water he could swim across to escape the communist paradise he languished in. But his life ended up going a different way: he confronted the slave masters, rather than escaping the prison they had built.
My father was a scholar at the Soviet Academy of Sciences and a professor at Moscow State University. His main field of study concerned Oriental languages and cultures, with a specialty in the Chinese, Sanskrit and Tamil areas. Despite his rewarding career, my dad put everything on the line and began to attend human rights demonstrations in Moscow on behalf of political prisoners. He also started to sign letters of protest against the political repressions that were heightening in the country in the 1960sconnected as they were to the re-Stalinization of the Soviet Union after the Khrushchev thaw. The activities my dad engaged in could land a Soviet citizen in the gulag or a psychiatric hospital for decades.
On February 24, 1968, my father signed the Letter of Twelve, a letter written and signed by twelve Soviet dissidents to the Supreme Congress of Communist Parties in Budapest denouncing Soviet human rights abuses. He was immediately fired from his work for being “unprofessional” in his scholarly studies (even though he previously had received high praise for his academic studies).
The picture of my dad, shown above, was taken by a friend who had come to visit him the evening of the day he was expelled from the Academy. My father had been at a meeting at the closed section of the Supreme Soviet of Scholars. Before the committee announced his expulsion, he had delivered a strong speech about political repressions in the country and finished by talking about his hope that the days of freedom would one day come to his beloved Russia.
After his expulsion, my father received a labor card with a special secret code that meant that he was blacklisted and could not receive employment anywhere in the country. He even tried to get a job cleaning streets, but was refused once an employer saw the poisoned markings. In a Soviet Catch-22, because of his “unemployment,” the KGB began to persecute my father for “parasitism” — a law in the Soviet Union that criminalized unemployed people and subsequently shipped them off to labor camps in Siberia.
Under these circumstances, my dad’s health broke down. He became very sick, came down with sepsis (blood poisoning) and was hospitalized. The Communist Party was as cold and unforgiving as the Siberian winter, and the KGB sharks waited for him to either die or to arrive home from his sickbed, upon which they would continue their persecution of him. Because of very brave friends like Dr. Anna Marshak who provided Western medication to my father, he survived. His sickness and several other developments threw the unfolding narrative down a different path.
During this time, a friend of our family’s told my dad that, under vicious harassment by the KGB (they had discovered an affair she was having and threatened to tell her husband), she had agreed to be a witness for them in a trial against my father that would charge (and convict) him of selling foreign currency and drugs on the black market (which she would place in our apartment). Upon hearing this, my dad knew the KGB was going for the jugular and that he only had one hand left to play. He immediately sent a letter to the Department for Exit Visas in which he said: give me a job or let me out of the country. Shortly afterwards, in April 1972, before Nixon’s visit to Moscow — and perhaps because of that visit — my father received the Exit Visa to emigrate from the Soviet Union. In escaping the Soviet hell, he was able to bring his family to the West.
[My family, after my father was expelled from the Academy. I’m the youngest, with my older brother and sister behind me. My mom is above my brother to dad’s right.]
My father never stopped fighting the Soviet system and the murderous, anti-human ideology that spawned it. He never fell into silence about the genocide and monstrous oppression communism engendered everywhere it set foot. He was always outspoken on behalf of political prisoners that languished in communist gulags around the world. I grew up in this spirit that my dad (and mom) nurtured in our family, and my heart and mind, from a young age, were preoccupied with the fate and sufferings of political dissidents fighting and suffering under totalitarian regimes.
I am eternally grateful to my father, and to my mother, for having instilled in me one of the highest values in life, which we find in Hebrews 13:3: Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.
And that is precisely that value that explains why I am at Frontpage Magazine today, fighting on the front lines alongside a noble warrior like David Horowitz on behalf of freedom fighters everywhere, and in particular the brave Christians, Jews, Muslim dissidents and all other minorities and peoples who are being viciously persecuted under Islamist tyranny.
When my dad arrived in the U.S. via Italy, he first taught at New York University and then at Boston College as Professor of Russian Studies. He then moved to Canada in 1975 to teach at the Department of Russian Studies at Dalhousie University. He loved to teach Fyodor Dostoevsky and the history of Russian ideas.
[My mom and dad in Italy in 1972 when we first left the Soviet Union.]
In 1992, the Soviet Academy of Sciences apologized to my father for persecuting him earlier, and now invited him to re-establish scholarly contacts. In the mid-1990s, after the collapse of the Soviet Union, my father received a document from the Sakharov Archives located in Boston. Dated February 19, 1971, it was a top secret letter written by Yuri Andropov, leader of the KGB at the time, to the Central Committee of the Communist Party. Filled with obscene lies and clear self-induced lies, it accused my dad of terrorism and espionage, indicating the kind of trial the KGB was preparing for my dad in those horrifying years. This document proves how much the KGB hated dissidents and spread the most vicious lies about them (being CIA agents etc.).
Bugging the regular conversations of my father with Sakharov, mostly in Sakharov’s apartment, the KGB deliberately distorted the discussions, parts of which dealt with the history of terrorism in Russia. The so-called “espionage” of my father was based on his correspondence with international scholars in his field, which my father dared to conduct in those dangerous years. Naturally, his letters were perlustrated and listed in the KGB files.
My father published numerous books and articles in both Russian and English. The two books that became best known were, The Russian Mind Since Stalin’s Death and To Be or Not to Be in the Party: Communist Party Membership in the USSR.
My dad died of cancer, 21 years ago today, on March 15, 1998. It was before the Vladimir Putin period, but my father already gauged, with great disappointment, what was happening in his beloved homeland. He understood the disaster and tragedy concerning the future moral health of his country when Nuremberg-style trials did not follow the collapse of the Soviet Union. The crimes and atrocities of Soviet communism – and the ideology that engendered the mass murder of 60 million people – were all supposed to be revealed and condemned. The secret KGB archives were supposed to be opened. The exposure and judgment of high ranking KGB officers and communist officials were supposed to take place in front of the whole world. Instead, these criminals and mafia figures remained in power — just in new clothing and using new language.
New school textbooks were supposed to be introduced – like those in post-war Germany that dealt honestly with the crimes of the Nazi era. It is impossible to imagine Hitler being praised in today’s German school texts or his glorified portrait being hung high in the streets of Germany. But in Russia, the mirror image of that horror happened and still continues today.
So, today, with Putin and his KGB thugs and murderers still in power, we witnessed, a few years back, the preparation for the 65th anniversary celebration of the Soviet victory in WWII marked with portraits of Joseph Stalin as the country’s victorious war-time leader. This is no surprise, of course, since Putin has overseen a strong pining for Stalin in Russia, which manifested itself in a beverage plant in Volgograd releasing a series of soft drinks picturing the dictator on its labels and in the introduction of new textbooks in schools speaking of the mass murderer as, among other things, an “effective manager.”
What would my father have thought of all of these developments if he were alive today? So many dissidents sacrificed their lives fighting for freedom in the Soviet Union. For what? Russia was given the window of opportunity to choose freedom in the early 1990s, but it chose to turn its back on this historic opportunity. My father shared the same fate as many of his friends and other dissidents: if you avoided being murdered, you passed away early from cancer or other illnesses. One can only imagine what terrible stress these freedom fighters endured for the sake of bringing liberty to their nation. Was it all in vain?
I don’t think it was. What my father and the other courageous warriors did was meaningful in its own right. Moreover, the struggle my father’s life valiantly represented lives on. Today, each of us can help keep the flame for Russian freedom alive and to help the brave Russian people fighting for justice and liberty.
Each of us can also take a stand against the threat of Islamic Supremacism, which has replaced the threat of communism to western civilization today, and we can also resist the leftist agenda, which we know is bent on aiding and abetting Jihad and stealth Jihad.
From a young age, I set out to carry the torch for my dad in terms of everything he stood and fought for. I make that effort today as the editor of David Horowitz’s magazine Frontpagemag.comwhich is on the front-lines in exposing our enemies, at home and abroad, and in devising the best strategies to defend our civilization and freedom from them.
I also honor my dad’s memory and continue his cause by hosting the web-tv show, The Glazov Gang (with the help of my producer Anni Cyrus), which dares to tell the truth about the Left and Islamic Supremacism that our media and culture simply won’t dare discuss. And I have detailed the romance between these two totalitarian entities in my new book, Jihadist Psychopath: How He Is Charming, Seducing, and Devouring Us.
I would like to thank everyone who has taken the time here to read about my father. And I am most grateful to all of you who will help, in your own personal way, to try to make sure that my dad’s battle – and the battle of so many freedom fighters and martyrs who rose and fell fighting totalitarian systems — will not be forgotten. Thank you.

AFL-CIO says job-destroying scheme makes unachievable, unrealistic promises
SEE: below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
The nation’s largest federation of labor unions eviscerated the ‘Green New Deal’ in a letter to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.)
The AFL-CIO Energy Committee delivered a letter dated March 8 directly to the offices of Ocasio-Cortez and Markey, the proposal’s sponsors, agreeing with them that “climate change must be addressed,” but denouncing the scheme as an economic disaster.
“We welcome the call for labor rights and dialogue with labor, but the Green New Deal resolution is far too short on specific solutions that speak to the jobs of our members and the critical sectors of our economy,” the letter reads. “It is not rooted in an engineering-based approach and makes promises that are not achievable or realistic.”
“We will not accept proposals that could cause immediate harm to millions of our members and their families. We will not stand by and allow threats to our members’ jobs and their families’ standard of living go unanswered.”
Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) posted the letter on Twitter.
“The AFL-CIO, which represents 12.5 million workers & includes 55 labor unions, slams the Green New Deal in a letter to Sen. Markey and AOC,” Barrasso wrote. “I agree with the AFL-CIO.”
Greenpeace founder Patrick Moore recently directed a scathing tweet at Ocasio-Cortez, ridiculing the Deal and asserting it would bring about “mass death.”
“Pompous little twit,” Moore wrote. You don’t have a plan to grow food for 8 billion people without fossil fuels, or get food into the cities. Horses?”
“If fossil fuels were banned every tree in the world would be cut down for fuel for cooking and heating. You would bring about mass death.”
The American Action Forum, run by former Congressional Budget Office director Douglas Holtz-Eakin, estimates the Green New Deal would cost between $51 and $93 trillion dollars over the course of ten years.
A compilation by Grabien reveals the intellectual capacity of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez perfectly.

Yet another convert to Islam somehow gets the idea that her new religion requires her to commit treason and mass murder. Authorities, as always, remain resolutely incurious about this recurring phenomenon.
“Georgia woman accused of helping build ‘kill lists’ of servicemembers for ISIS-linked group,” by Jeremy Redmon, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, March 12, 2019 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
ATLANTA Ga. (Tribune News Service) — Authorities arrested a 20-year-old woman south of Augusta on Tuesday for allegedly supporting an Islamic State-linked group that has called for killing thousands of people in the New York City area, including U.S. troops.
Three years ago, Kim Anh Vo — who also goes by “Zozo,” “Miss.Bones” and “Kitty Lee” — allegedly joined the United Cyber Caliphate, an online group that has pledged allegiance to the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, the U.S. Justice Department announced in a news release. The organization, according to the federal agency, is “committed to carrying out online attacks and cyber intrusions against Americans.”
Since Vo joined the group, Justice Department officials said, it and its subgroups have disseminated online “kill lists,” identifying U.S. servicemembers and U.S. State Department workers. One such list from April 2016 identified about 3,600 people in the New York City area, declaring “We Want them #Dead.”
Two years ago, the group posted another kill list with the names of more than 8,000 people and links to a video that said: “We have a message to the people of the U.S., and, most important, your President Trump: Know that we continue to wage war against you.” The video contained what appeared to be a graphic depiction of a man being decapitated.
Vo has also sought to recruit others to join the group and assist it with its hacking efforts, according to the Justice Department. Among them is a minor living in Norway. Vo allegedly recruited that person to create an online video threatening a New York City-based nonprofit group that fights the promotion of extremist ideologies….
