BUSH DAUGHTER SET TO HEADLINE PLANNED PARENTHOOD FUNDRAISER

Rachel Stoltzfoos | Daily Caller

Former President George W. Bush’s daughter is set to headline a Planned Parenthood fundraiser in Texas Wednesday.

Barbara Pierce Bush will give the keynote address for the abortion giant at an annual luncheon in Fort Worth. Proceeds will go to providing funds for abortions and other services provided by Planned Parenthood clinics in Texas. Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas said the organization is “thrilled” to have Barbara speak announcing the address, and touted her accomplishments as the CEO and co-founder of Global Health Corps, where she has worked on projects with the Bill and Hillary Clinton Foundation in Africa. Her support for the organization stands out, given her father’s strong pro-life stance as president, although not a surprise given her past work and statements. Barbara is cozy with Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards. At a previous lunch with Richards, reported by The New York Times, she referred to Planned Parenthood as an “exceptional organization.” Barbara also attended a fundraiser for then-presidential candidate Hillary Clintonin Paris in October. Tickets to the luncheon start at $150 a pop, and go as high as $20,000 for a group of 10.




THE DAY I WAS ACCUSED OF BEING RACIST, I KNEW POLITICAL CORRECTNESS HAD GONE MAD
The recognition of diversity has grown into a cancerous cultural tyranny that blocks open debate

Trevor Phillips | Daily Mail

A few weeks ago, I observed that Barack Obama’s iconic status as the first African-American U.S. President should not obscure his mixed political record.

For that, I was accused by one Radio 4 commentator of peddling a ‘racist narrative’. As a black man and former chairman of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, you might think I would be surprised to face a charge of racism — but I was not. For at a time when this country is crying out for frank discussion on issues such as race and sexuality, debate is being closed down because those who find offence in every-thing cry ‘racist’ or ‘sexist’. The result — as I argue tonight in a TV programme — is that our political and cultural elite seem unable to speak plainly about things that concern many citizens. While our rulers seem to have all the time in the world to debate who should use which lavatory (in deference to the transgender lobby), they dismiss anxieties about overcrowded schools or doctors’ surgeries as merely a bigoted dislike of migrants. How has this come about? Forty years ago, ‘identity’ politics was about trying to end discrimination. It led to revolutionary legislation on gender, disability and race. But recently the recognition of diversity has grown into a cancerous cultural tyranny that blocks open debate. In higher education, it has spread like wildfire.

ACLU DEMANDS PORTLAND POLICE OFFICERS STOP WEARING RIOT GEAR
Activists seek to strip officers of protection from violent agitators

Blue Lives Matter

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has now demanded that the Portland Police Department stop using riot gear in response to protests and potential riots.

Sarah Armstrong, spokeswoman for the ACLU of Oregon, said that when police show up in riot gear, it escalates the situation and that police policies should aim for de-escalation, according to KGW. These comments come on the tail end of when police showed up in riot helmets to the illegal Portland Resistance protest on Monday. That protest was partially sponsored by Black Lives Matter PDX.On Monday, 13 people were arrested by Portland Police Officers after blocking traffic during a “Not My President’s Day” rally, which was held in front of the downtown Federal building. Six activists were arrested for Disorderly Conduct, three teenagers received traffic citations, and one protester was arrested for Second-Degree Disorderly Conduct, Resisting Arrest and Furnishing False Information to Police. The protesters did not get a required permit and that activists blocked traffic at two highways that ran through the city as well as SW 3rd Avenue and Madison Street, according to KOIN.

At Monday’s protest, Portland Police Officers first rode bicycles into the area and asked protesters to clear the streets. Those verbal warnings were given for about 20 minutes. When the criminals refused to stop impeding traffic, Portland Police Officers in riot helmets moved in to disperse them.

HUFFINGTON POST DELETES ARTICLE ADMITTING TRUMP RIGHT ABOUT SWEDEN
Author says article published 'is nothing but the truth'

Adan Salazar

Ultra-liberal website Huffington Post removed an article from their website yesterday which admitted Donald Trump was right about Sweden’s immigration problem.

A Wednesday article written by Norwegian author and HuffPost contributor Rene Zografos entitled, “Trump is Absolutely Right About Sweden,” outlined the nation’s “huge problems because of liberal immigration policy.” “It’s well known for Scandinavians and other Europeans that liberal immigration comes with drugs, rapes, gang wars, robbery and violence,” wrote Zografos in the now-deleted article. “Additional to that we see the respective nations cultures fading away, for good and for bad.” Zografos documented that mere hours after Trump made his comments on Sweden, “there was a riot of violence and destructions by immigrants in the capitol of Sweden, Stockholm.”The journalist further called out the European press for ignoring, or attempting to downplay the “enormous problems that comes from liberal immigration policies.” “There is this fear for journalists to not report the basic truth – which is that Europe has enormous problems that comes from liberal immigration politics, and as we also now can see in Sweden, but also here in Norway.” Asked why the site pulled his article, Zografos said he’d inquired but had yet to receive a response. He asserted it was possibly because he wrote “the truth” about the European migrant epidemic. It's nothing but the truth: go to my Facebook site for sources. I'm not pro Trump, I'm pro truth.

President Donald Trump at a rally in Florida commented on the immigration problem facing Sweden. President Trump said, Sweden! Who would ever believe this could happen to Sweden? They took in large numbers and now they’re having problems like they never thought possible. The president said, later clarifying that he was referring to a story he’d seen the previous night on Fox News.



AUSTRIA: FAMILY OF IRAQI ASYLUM SEEKERS ‘GANG RAPED DRUNK WOMAN’
Nine men accused of raping woman, 28, on New Year's Eve 2015

Nine asylum seekers from the same family have gone on trial in the Austrian capital Vienna accused of the New Year’s Eve 2015 gang rape of a 28-year-old German teacher.

Prosecutors charged the Iraqi men with ‘abuse of a defenceless person and rape in a very humiliating and agonising way for the victim.’At the opening of the trial on Tuesday the court heard how the woman, identified only as Sabine K., was ‘blind drunk’ when she went with the men to an apartment. Most of the men deny the charges but DNA from six of them was found in or on her body.

DHS TO EXPEDITE DEPORTATION PROCEEDINGS BY BYPASSING COURT SYSTEM
Secretary Kelly laying groundwork for fluid deportation protocols

Immigration courts have reached a record backlog since 2016. Secretary of Homeland Security, Mr Kelly ordered that illegal immigrants who have been in the U.S. for less than two years should be allowed to be deported without a court hearing. Kelly signed two memos on Monday that made significant changes to the nation’s immigration policy. They ordered the immediate construction of a border wall, expanded the amount of local police who will enforce immigration law, and put every illegal immigrant — excluding those protected under President Obama’s executive amnesty — at risk of deportation. Condemnation of the plan by pro-immigration activists and Democratic politicians was swift. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a statement Tuesday, “By targeting those without serious convictions, those who have merely been charged with offenses, or those recent arrivals — including unaccompanied children — who have posed no safety threat to our neighborhoods, the President has chosen the politics of division over our nation’s safety.”

The policy director of the Center for Immigration Studies Jessica Vaughan, who advocates for reduced immigration, on the other hand told Newsweek the memos are a “welcome move.”

DEMS ORGANIZING ANTI-TRUMP PROTESTS IN MEXICO
Protest organized in response to Trump's policies on immigration, NAFTA

The overseas arm of the Democratic Party is responsible for organizing a protest in Mexico as a pair of U.S. cabinet secretaries visit the country.

Democrats Abroad, “the official Democratic Party arm for the millions of Americans living outside the United States,” has organized a protest outside the American embassy in Mexico City in response to a visit by Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson and Secretary of Homeland Security, John Kelly. “Democrats Abroad, Mexico and other progressive organizations like, the Women’s March and Bridges to Understanding, have created a petition” that Mr Tillerson “meet with U.S. citizens who hold opposing views while he visits Mexico City to talk with Mexican government officials,” The Action Network, a left-wing website for activists posts information on protests and rallies. The petition stated that “If we are not given a meeting with Secretary Rex Tillerson we will deliver a letter to the U. S. Embassy at 2 pm on Thursday, February 23, and will hold a quiet and respectful demonstration on the public space in front of the embassy. Mark your calendar and be ready to to attend on a moment’s notice.”Doug Hall, listed as both the organizer of the protest and the creator of the petition, wrote, “As no one else, those of us Americans who are concerned about these policies, and who also make our homes in Mexico, are in a unique position to provide the Secretary of State a viewpoint that he might not receive in Washington, D.C.” the petition said. “We call on Secretary Tillerson to meet with us at a time and place of his convenience during his visit.”

Doug Hall an employee with Democrats Abroad in Mexico is chaired by Jodie Quinnell, who served as a delegate for Hillary Clinton at the Democratic National Convention. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders handedly defeated Clinton in the Democrats Abroad primary, including in Mexico where he earned 848 votes compared to Clinton’s 535.

The Republican Party’s formal organization dedicated to outreach among Americans living abroad, Republicans Abroad, dissolved in 2013, leaving individual country chapters to fend for themselves as independent entities.




ANTI-WHITE ATTACKER WHO SPAT AT BABY AVOIDS JAIL
No outrage from SJWs

A racist attacker who spat in a baby’s face and shouted “white people shouldn’t breed” has avoided jail despite the attack being unprovoked.

Rebecca Telford, 25, was walking her baby, Layla-Jean, in England last January when Rezzas Abdulla, 33, approached her. He leant into the pushchair and spat in the face of her daughter. Prosecutor Emma Dowling told the Newcastle Crown Court. “As he did so he shouted ‘white people shouldn’t breed.’ ”When the baby’s shocked mother confronted Abdulla, he told her to ‘shut the f**k up’ and walked off, Dowling told the court that Abdulla’s spit was “sprayed around” the baby’s face, and that her mother had to get a tissue from a passer-by to wipe it off.

Abdulla, who has two previous convictions for racial attacks on white women, was caught by CCTV as he fled the scene. Telford had told police: “I am completely disgusted and distressed that a grown man, regardless of race or religion, would spit on a defenseless baby in a completely unprovoked attack.” “I believe he spit on her purely because we are white, I was a lone female and an easy target,” she added. Abdulla was sentenced to eight months’ imprisonment, suspended for 18 months, with mental rehabilitation treatments being required. The judge in the case told Abdulla he had “a problem, it seems to me, with white women,” but added that Abdulla’s unstable mental health “contributed” to the offense, and said “society in general” would be better off if Abdulla continued to receive psychiatric treatment. “I am glad he has been brought to justice, but I think he has got off lightly,” Telford said. “I am not racist at all but I honestly think if it was the other way around and I had been abusive towards him, then I would have been treated differently.”

The United Kingdom has experienced a dramatic spike in hate crimes in the months following Brexit, according to regional police figures released last week.



ANTI-POLICE RIOTS EXPLODE AFTER OFF-DUTY LAPD OFFICER CLASHES WITH TEENS
Altercation results in discharged weapon, violent protests

A confrontation between an off-duty LAPD officer and Southern California teenagers ended in ugly fashion with the officer discharging his firearm, prompting anti-police protests that devolved into violence and rioting.

The original incident took place in the officer’s Anaheim neighborhood, where it is reported that he has an on-going feud with bands of teens trespassing on his property.A press release from the Anaheim Police Department describes the circumstances of the altercation –“The confrontation began over ongoing issues with juveniles walking across the officer’s property. During the confrontation, a 13 year old male is alleged to have threatened to shoot the off-duty officer, at which time the officer attempted to detain the male until APD arrived. This led to a physical confrontation between the off-duty officer and several other juveniles. During the confrontation the officer discharged his firearm one time.”

While attempting to detain 13-year-old Christian Dorscht until police arrived on the scene, the officer was assaulted by other youths, at which time he drew his firearm, appearing to fire it into the ground. No one was struck by the round. The video clip which was recorded on a cell phone is not shown here due to the extensive obscenities used by the young hoodlum and the voracious crowd. Dorscht can be heard threatening to “shoot” the officer and that he is going to “sue” him between numerous crude and vulgar obscenities also claiming that his own father is a police officer.


‘Paris On Brink Of Civil War’ Warns Le Pen – Media Blackout

Marine Le Pen has warned that Paris is on the brink of a total civil war, as media outlets across Europe refuse to report on the situation. 

[YNW] Paris has been under martial law for around 2 years with riots, rape and murder filling the suburban streets. With French police routinely fleeing from armed rioters, Marine Le Pen has urged President Hollande to address the growing concern that Paris is about to fall into complete civil war as rioters close in on the city center.

9 MINUTE VIDEO: BREAKING : Paris Burning : A City Bleeding - Special Report


EP reports:

The Front National leader said the Government has been quick to “rush to the bedside of the very few victims of police violence without even waiting for… justice” – but are unable to quash the risk of a “real civil war” on the streets of Paris. In a ruthless rant, Le Pen wrote: “In a state of emergency, it is completely irresponsible to let a protest against the police and alleged police violence take place. “This government has remained unresponsive for years to scoundrels who make their laws in certain districts and do not hesitate to unleash their violence as soon as a demonstration gives them the opportunity. “Is it necessary to say that the magistrates need a strong and effective police force in order to do their work? “Must we remind them that this same police force, as well as the gendarmerie, now needs to be permanently changed?”

BB reports:

According to Le Figaro, the destruction is getting worse. At the beginning of the week, on the nights of the 12th and 13th, 32 vehicles were burnt out. On the 14th and 15th, some 47 cars were destroyed by fire as well as 59 bins. Police appeared to have completely lost control at times, with unverified videos surfacing on Twitter of officers being chased out of certain neighbourhoods by rioters. An officer at the scene said: “Windows have been smashed and officers attacked. Small groups of protesters wearing hoods to hide their identities are causing trouble and then running away. “Everything is being done to try and disperse the crowds, but this could go on for a long time yet.”

LE PEN REFUSES ISLAMIC VEIL, CANCELS MEETING WITH LEBANESE MUFTI
French leader rejects demand to cover herself

Leading French presidential candidate, Marine Le Pen, rejected demands that she don an Islamic veil for her scheduled meeting with the Lebanese grand mufti.

1 MINUTE VIDEO: France's Marine Le Pen refuses to wear headscarf for meeting with Lebanon's Grand Mufti


After arriving at the offices of Abdel-Latif Derian, an aide of the sheikh held up the oppressive female headdress as photographers snapped the moment eagerly. Le Pen flatly refused the ultimatum and exited the room. “You can pass on my respects to the grand mufti, but I will not veil myself,”she told the press outside. She noted that during her meeting with Egypt’s Grand Imam Ahmed al-Tayeb, considered by many as the ranking leader of Sunni Muslims worldwide, she was not expected to cover herself. “The highest Sunni authority in the world had not had this requirement, so I have no reason to,”she said.

Le Pen is pulling further ahead in the French polls in the midst of chaos and riots in Paris, as Third World migrants continue to pour into France, ravaging its resources and hurting her people.



HOLLAND’S WILDERS SLAMS “MOROCCAN SCUM” AS PARIS OVER-RUN BY ANTIFA
"There is a lot of Moroccan scum in Holland who makes the streets unsafe"

Following the under-reported chaos in Paris this week, as muslims and Antifa took over the streets following allegations of police brutality,Holland’s outspoken anti-immigrant, anti-EU party leader Geert Wilders promised to crack down on “Moroccan scum” who he said were making the streets unsafe and urged the Dutch to “regain” their country as he launched his election campaign on Saturday.

Wilders was, as Reuters reports, surrounded by police and security guards during a walkabout in Spijkenisse, part of the ethnically diverse industrial area surrounding the vast port of Rotterdam and a stronghold of his Freedom Party. “Not all are scum, but there is a lot of Moroccan scum in Holland who makes the streets unsafe,” he told reporters, speaking in English. “If you want to regain your country, if you want to make the Netherlands for the people of the Netherlands, your own home, again, then you can only vote for one party.” Crime by young Moroccans was not being taken seriously, added Wilders, who in December was convicted of inciting discrimination for leading supporters in a chant that they wanted “Fewer! Fewer! Fewer!” Moroccans in the country.

9 MINUTE VIDEO: Muslims and Antifa Have Taken Paris



Wilders – who has lived in hiding since an Islamist murdered Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh in 2004 – pledges to ban Muslim immigration, close all mosques and take the Netherlands out of the European Union.While muslims, Black Lives Matter (France), and ANTIFA have been waging a continuous battle on the streets of Paris for several years now, Wilders’ comments this past week come after the riots have escalated, and many areas, particularly the 18th Arrondissement, have become no-go zones for citizens, police, and medical professionals. The excuse this time was the false allegation that a Muslim Youth had been gang raped by Police.

Wilders hopes a global upsurge in anti-establishment feeling that has already helped to propel Donald Trump to the U.S. presidency and to persuade Britons to vote to quit the European Union will propel him to power in the March 15 parliamentary election. A win for Wilders would boost French far-right leader Marine Le Pen and the Alternative for Germany party, both hoping to transform European politics in elections this year. “Despite all the hate and fear-mongering of the so-called elite both in Britain and Brussels, people took their fate in their own hands,” he said. “I think that will happen in Holland, in France, Austria and in Germany.”

Wilders’ party leads in opinion polls with 17 percent, a whisker ahead of the pro-business Liberals of Prime Minister Mark Rutte.


LA churches ready underground network of safe houses for illegals

"Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's; and to God the things that are God's." (Romans 13:1)

Apparently, that well known piece of advice from the Bible is falling on deaf ears in southern California.

A network of churches is organizing resistance to the new immigration enforcement policies of the federal government by developing a network of "safe houses" to shelter illegal alien families from deportation.

The Hill:

Religious leaders in Los Angeles are forming an underground network of homes as part of an effort to provide shelter for families facing deportation, CNN reported Thursday.

According to CNN, the "Rapid Response Team" network could shelter hundreds and potentially thousands of illegal immigrants across Southern California.

"That's what we need to do as a community to keep families together," said Pastor Ada Valiente, after showing CNN a house that is ready to host three families.

Similar services for immigrant families are already being provided by numerous churches and religious buildings in the area.

According to CNN, this Rapid Response Team seeks to go beyond the existing measures.

Another participant who did not want to be identified told CNN he will do everything in his power to protect his guests if immigration authorities come knocking on his door.

"I definitely won't let them in. That's our legal right," he said. "If they have a warrant, then they can come in. I can imagine that could be scary, but I feel the consequences of being passive in this moment is a little scary."

Under President Obama, the authority of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials was limited at various religious locations.

Members of the new underground network have voiced skepticism that the policy will last under President Trump.

The compassion showed by the churchmen is admirable. I just wish they had similar compassion for those suffering the consequences of untrammeled illegal immigration. To make believe we are not paying the price for millions of illegal aliens crossing our borders is ignorant. And that price is unnecessary when you consider that orderly, legal immigration would weed out most of the criminals and unemployable aliens making our streets less safe and putting an enormous and needless strain on the social service resources in our communities.

Creating illegal alien sanctuaries will not stop the deportations and is probably unnecessary anyway. Unless the government begins a mass round-up of illegals, law-abiding aliens who reside in the U.S. are probably safe from immediate deportation. Those illegals whose actions result in them coming in contact with the authorities because of criminal activity are most likely to be deported first. Are these good Christian churches going to harbor criminals to keep them from being deported?

That's what it will eventually come down to.

Antarctica penguin population declining as glacier recedes and ice disappears 

ANTARCTICA -- The U.S. Antarctic research base at Palmer Station has been clinging to a rocky shore since the 1960s.

There because the Adelie species of penguin has nested nearby, numbering in the tens of thousands. They are the penguins that were the model for the movie “Happy Feet.” They’re apparently not so happy any more. They call Shawn Farry the Bird Man here, but lately he’s had a lot fewer birds to count. “These local islands where we’ve been censusing for, it’s 43 years now ... have declined by about 85 percent,” he said.  The numbers on this island at their peak were almost 9,000, and this year it was about 1,200. At first it was though that, as the weather warmed here, the penguins might have moved further south, looking for the sea ice they need to hunt from. But they hadn’t. “We do work other places down the peninsula, looking for them,” Farry said. “We’re not finding them.”

Not just the sea ice is retreating. There’s a spectacular glacier next to the base that gets less spectacular every year. They keep a photo showing how it retreated from 1975 to 2013. Then a funny thing happened -- quickly. Normally in places like this, you talk about things moving at glacial speed, taking their time. Not here. And they’ve got photos of the moment the island emerged, when the glacier connecting it to the mainland collapsed along with the population of penguins.

 

 

Astronomers discover 7 Earth-sized planets orbiting nearby star

·         Seven Earth-sized planets have been found orbiting an ultracool dwarf star 40 light-years away,

·         The planets are temperate, meaning they could have liquid water.

·         The researchers believe this is the best place outside of our solar system to look for life.

Astronomers have found at least seven Earth-sized planets orbiting the same star 40 light-years away, according to astudy published Wednesday in the journal Nature. The findings were also announced at a news conference at NASA Headquarters in Washington.  This discovery outside of our solar system is rare because the planets have the winning combination of being similar in size to Earth and being all temperate, meaning they could have water on their surfaces and potentially support life.  This is the first time that so many planets of this kind are found around the same star," said Michael Gillon, lead study author and astronomer at the University of Liege in Belgium. The seven exoplanets were all found in tight formation around an ultracool dwarf star called TRAPPIST-1. Estimates of their mass also indicate that they are rocky planets, rather than being gaseous like Jupiter. Three planets are in the habitable zone of the star, known as TRAPPIST-1e, f and g, and may even have oceans on the surface. 

The TRAPPIST-1 star, an ultracool dwarf, has seven Earth-size planets orbiting it. The researchers believe that TRAPPIST-1f in particular is the best candidate for supporting life. It's a bit cooler than Earth, but could be suitable with the right atmosphere and enough greenhouse gases. If TRAPPIST-1 sounds familiar, that's because these researchers announced the discovery of three initial planets orbiting the same star in May. The new research increased that number to seven planets total. Three Earth-like planets discovered orbiting dwarf star

"I think we've made a crucial step towards finding if there is life out there," said Amaury Triaud, one of the study authors and an astronomer at the University of Cambridge. "I don't think any time before we had the right planets to discover and find out if there was (life). Here, if life managed to thrive and releases gases similar to what we have on Earth, we will know."

Life may begin and evolve differently on other planets, so finding the gases that indicate life is key, the researchers added. This discovery could be a significant piece in the puzzle of finding habitable environments, places that are conducive to life," said Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator of NASA's Science Mission Directorate. "Answering the question 'are we alone?' is a top science priority, and finding so many these for the first time in the habitable zone is a remarkable step forward toward that goal."

And as we've learned from studying and discovering exoplanets before, where there is one, there are more, said Sara Seager, professor of planetary science and physics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Seager and other researchers are encouraged by the discovery of this system because it improves our chances of finding another habitable planet, like Earth, in the future, by knowing where to look.

What we know: The planets are so close to each other and the star that there are seven of them within a space five times smaller than the distance from Mercury to our sun. This proximity allows the researchers to study the planets in depth as well, gaining insight about planetary systems other than our own.

The seven planets of TRAPPIST-1 compared with Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars.

Starting closest to the star and moving out, the planets have respective orbits from one and a half to nearly 13 Earth days. The orbit of the farthest planet is still unknown. Standing on the surface of one of the planets, you would receive 200 times less light than you get from the sun, but you would still receive just as much energy to keep you warm since the star is so close. It would also afford some picturesque views, as the other planets would appear in the sky as big as the moon (or even twice as big).

On TRAPPIST-1f, the star would appear three times as big as the sun in our sky. And because of the red nature of the star, the light would be a salmon hue, the researchers speculate.

The researchers believe the planets formed together further from the star. Then, they moved into their current lineup. This is incredibly similar Jupiter and its Galilean moons. Like the moon, the researchers believe the planets closest to the star are tidally locked. This means that the planets always face one way to the star. One side of the planet is perpetually night, while the other is always day. Based on preliminary climate modeling, the researchers believe that the three planets closest to the star may be too warm to support liquid water, while the outermost planet, TRAPPIST-1h, is probably too distant and cold to support water on the surface. But further observation is needed to know for sure.

How the discovery was made: TRAPPIST-1 barely classifies as a star at half the temperature and a tenth the mass of the sun. It is red, dim and just a bit larger than Jupiter. But these tiny ultracool dwarf stars are common in our galaxy.

PREVIOUSLY-DEPORTED ILLEGAL BEATS DESERT STORM VETERAN TO DEATH
15-year US Navy veteran beaten outside of his home during carjacking

Adan Salazar

Charges are expected to be upgraded for a Honduran national who beat a Desert Storm veteran to death in South Texas.

Earlier this month, 32-year-old Andres Roberto Ortiz was taken into custody in McAllen more than a week after fleeing a roll-over accident he’d had in a stolen vehicle.


1 MINUTE VIDEO: Valley Veteran Dies, Charges Against Suspect May Be Upgraded


Law enforcement had located the owner of the vehicle, 56-year-old Jose Luis Oveido, brutally beaten outside of his home in late January. “Ten days after the incident, police said they connected Ortiz to the crime,” reports KRGV.

Breitbart News has details on the assault: “The victim was at his home when the Honduran illegal immigrant arrived and assaulted him to steal the vehicle. Authorities have been able to determine that Andres Roberto Ortiz had been deported multiple times before being connected to the robbery.”

A set up before Oveido’s death sheds more light on the deadly attack. Tragedy struck on Sunday 1/29/2017. He was home alone when he heard a noise in his backyard. He found himself confronted by thieves trying to steal his vehicle. He was beaten unconscious. A few hours later, Local Law Enforcement came to his home after finding his truck abandoned in a ditch. They found him still unconscious in his backyard. Jose Luis has not woken up since. His family is asking for prayers and help for medical expenses.

The Monitor reports Ortiz was almost deported after being pulled over in another traffic stop following the rollover accident: Days after the Honduran fled the scene of the alleged SUV theft, an undocumented man was pulled over and per McAllen police protocol, was then transferred to Border Patrol because he was undocumented. Then, the man, from Honduras, was transferred to Immigration and Customs Enforcement, officials said, for deportation. About an hour before the flight was scheduled to leave last week, McAllen police called, asking ICE to hold the Honduran man. McAllen police believed it may have been the same Honduran man who allegedly committed the assault and robbery. ICE honored the request, officials said.

Oveido was in a coma for nearly a month and finally passed away Friday morning.The victim was a 15-year US Navy veteran and served in Operation Desert Storm, according to his son. Jose Luis served in the Navy for 9 years (1981 to 1990) in the VA72 Bluehawks Squadron stationed out of Jacksonville, Florida. He served time on three different aircraft carriers, [CV66 USS America, USS Independence, and USS Saratoga]. After leaving active duty, he continued to serve in the US Naval Reserves from 1990 to 1996 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

After Oveido’s death Friday, McAllen police said they would be consulting the Hidalgo County District Attorney’s Office to see if charges would be upgraded from aggravated assault and robbery to capital murder. While the victim’s son said he hadn’t really thought about the nation’s immigration crisis, he has a different outlook now that his father is gone. "I had no real opinion as far as the immigration stance goes, but now I believe that something like this could have been prevented had the right steps been taken,” he said.

The Hidalgo County District Attorney’s office did not return Infowars’ request for comment at the time of publishing.

It has been nearly 100 years since the February Revolution in Russia, which was used by Vladimir Lenin’s Bolsheviks to launch a coup in 1917, beginning a century of communist rule around the world marked by social decay, famine, and genocide.

The New York Times is commemorating this coming anniversary with a new series of articles on communism, the first of which on Feb. 24 omits any mention of the crimes against humanity committed under communist rule. Instead, it writes glowingly about the ideals of communism and asks whether we will see the “phoenix rise from the ash heap of history.”

Most of the world agrees Adolf Hitler was a monster whose totalitarian regime systematically murdered 6 million Jews, among other victims. All told, 11 million people died in the Holocaust.

Yet, in a similar light, why do so many academics who oppose fascism seem to support communism, which has killed in various estimates between 100 million and 150 million people? That’s many times more than died under Hitler.

A Light To The Nations
A Light To The Nations - Book

This book includes the astonishing prophetic metaphor where Jonah, symbolizing Old Covenant Israel, resists the call to prophesy to the Gentiles, and sails to Europe to escape the LORD's will. Swallowed up in symbolic Death – and then deposited back onto the land, where the Christ rejecting state re-emerges in 1948 as an involuntary witness, Jonah is an important figure in prophecy. Meanwhile, true Spiritual Israel is seen passing through the sea, walking in the will of the LORD, at the Exodus, even as the earthdwellers (the Egyptian host in the text) are destroyed.

Rise And Fall Of The Romerican Empire
The Rise And Fall Of The Romerican Empire - Book

In this amazing book, James brings together all the components of prophecy, including the Prophetic Parallels, the 6, 7, 8 Cycle, the Beast That Was sequence, the Little Horn, and the Twin Timelines of Bible Prophecy. Integrating these modularized phenomena into a seamless whole, The Rise and Fall Of The Romerican Empire deciphers Bible Prophecy in an unprecedented fashion.

The identity of Antichrist is again revealed in this work, as well as clearly showing where we are now in the prophesied sequence of events. His largest book in 20 years, the Rise and Fall Of The Romerican Empire is the definitive work which systematically presents the truth of Remnant theology.

The Collective
The Collective - Book


This book details how the Spiritual entity is essentially the opposite of the body of Christ. Symbolically articulated in the book of Revelation as the Image of the Beast, the Spiritual formation could also be described as the body of Antichrist. This polarity places the body of Christ on one end of the Spiritual spectrum, and the body of Antichrist on the other.

The Culting Of Christianity
The Culting Of Christianity - Book

The Culting Of Christianity links Egyptian mysticism to leaders in the early church, as well as Jewish opponents of Christianity.

An incendiary breakthrough, James conclusively shows the idea of a pre-tribulational evacuation was written in religious documents before Jesus was born. And it doesn't stop there, as James tracks how Occultic writings influenced the development of early Christian doctrine.

The Counterfeit Antichrist
The Counterfeit Antichrist

The first new DVD from James Lloyd in several years, this 2 hour TV program examines the rapidly growing idea the appearance of "the" Antichrist will be tied to the prophesied Moslem saviour figure known as The Mahdi.

Many Christian preachers and prophecy authors are now embracing a variation on the ancient "revived Roman Empire" lie with a scenario in which the end times "Antichrist" arrives as a powerful leader from the Islamic world. Leaning on Islamic prophecy itself, in the process of presenting their case in books, television programs, and speaking engagements, these false prophets are pitching another gospel (II Corinthians 11:4) which fails to recognize the truth about the Spiritual entities – commonly identified as Antichrist and The False Prophet -- found in Revelation.
