Police interacting with the children at school

From WILX: No more high-fives to police officers at schools in Northampton, Massachusetts on Friday mornings. The police department has stopped its ‘High Five Friday’ program after complaints.

The idea for the program came after police in Northampton visited a law enforcement conference in San Diego where “High Five Fridays” were done as a way for the department to engage with young people.

Uniformed officers in Northampton traveled to the city’s four elementary schools each Friday to welcome children to school for the day. The program ran for two months before it was halted. Police Chief Jody Kasper says there were complaints from residents concerned about how a weekly police presence might impact children of color, or undocumented children in a negative way. The chief decided to just cancel ‘High Five Fridays’ altogether.

Some residents disagree with the decision. “It’s very important to take care of the kids’ emotions and be sensitive towards it, but I think that stopping it abruptly was not the best way to go forward,” Lisa Maharjan of Northampton said. Northampton police say they will still give out high fives and fist bumps to anyone on the street who asks for one.

4 times Bill Gates said vaccines would reduce world population

Bill Gates is the multibillionaire founder of Microsoft, whose net worth as of 2/19/2017 is estimated to be a mind-boggling $85.6 billion.

Via his eponymous foundation, Gates is also famous for his philanthropy, a word that the dictionary defines as “the desire to promote the welfare of others, expressed especially by the generous donation of money to good causes.”

One of the funding outlets of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation are vaccines for poor people in the Third World. From the Cambridge Dictionary:

Vaccine is a substance containing a virus or bacterium in a form that is not harmful, given to a person or animal to prevent them from getting the disease that the virus or bacterium causes.

Note that nowhere in the definition does it say vaccines are also a form of birth control or contraception.

So it’s most curious that in his speech on how to reduce global warming at the 2010 TED conference, Gates touted vaccines as a means to reduce the world’s population by as much as 10-15%. He said:

“The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s headed up to about 9 billion. Now if we do a REALLY great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health service, we could lower that by perhaps 10 to 15 percent.

I had thought that Gates’ vaccine remark was a Freudian slip or a slip of the tongue — a verbal mistake that reveals a repressed belief, thought, or emotion; something that you say that shows your true thoughts in a way that you do not intend.

But it turns out Bill Gates had made that remark of vaccines being a causal agent for population reduction at least FOUR times, as shown in this video:

Saying the same thing four times can no longer be called a mistake or a Freudian slip. It’s intentional.

NYC immigration raid netted a dozen sex offenders

de-blasio-and-immigrants

De Blasio hardest hit.

From NY Post: Federal sources on Friday shared details about the 41 illegal immigrants arrested during a raid in and around New York City last week — and they include 12 people convicted of rape or sex offenses.

Of the 41 people rounded up by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials, 38 had criminal convictions, according to sources. Seven of them had been previously departed from the US but sneaked back in.

One of the foreign nationals, a 49-year-old from Jamaica, had sexually assaulted a child under the age of 11. He was busted in the Bronx. Three others had rape convictions.

A 31-year-old from El Salvador was a “self-admitted MS-13 gang member” and had been convicted of assault with a dangerous weapon. He was arrested in New Hyde Park.

ICE announced last week that more than 680 people, mostly criminals, had been rounded up during operations in cities across the country.

Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly described the operations as “routine” in a statement released Monday.

“Of those arrested, approximately 75 percent were criminal aliens, convicted of crimes including, but not limited to, homicide, aggravated sexual abuse, sexual assault of a minor, lewd and lascivious acts with a child, indecent liberties with a minor, drug trafficking, battery, assault, DUI and weapons charges,” he wrote.

Seattle to offer employees 12 weeks of paid parental leave

murray

Progressive Seattle Mayor Ed Murray

Guess who is vying for re-election?

Update: This was unanimously approved by the council, of course.

From Seattle Times: The Seattle City Council is set to vote Monday on whether to offer city employees up to 12 weeks of paid parental leave, rather than the four weeks they are offered now.

Mayor Ed Murray is asking for the change. It was less than two years ago that the council approved the existing benefit for new parents, making Seattle the first city in the Pacific Northwest and one of the first cities in the country to offer paid parental leave.

Employees would become eligible for 12 weeks after working for the city for six months. The benefit would apply not only to births but also to placements of children into homes through adoption, foster care and legal guardianship.

When Councilmember Kshama Sawant proposed 12 weeks of paid parental leave last year, her proposal was voted down.

Monday’s legislation would also give city employees a new benefit — up to four weeks of paid leave to care for family members with serious health conditions. The four weeks would be available every 12 months and employees would need to first use some sick leave and vacation leave.

Extending the parental-leave benefit to 12 weeks would cost the city an additional $2.6 million per year, according to the legislation’s fiscal note. Offering the new family-care benefit would cost an additional $436,000 per year, for a total of about $3 million.

Rather than refer Murray’s legislation to a committee for review and discussion, the council has chosen to take action on it immediately. Seattle has more than 11,000 employees.

Syrian refugee charged after ‘multiple sexual assaults’ at West Edmonton Mall waterpark

honest-journalism

The actual headline of this article said “Man charged after…” His status as a Syrian refugee isn’t noted until almost the last paragraph. Even with multiple children being sexually attacked, the media cannot report the truth in their headlines.

From Global News: A 39-year-old man has been charged in connection with several sexual assaults that occurred at the West Edmonton Mall World Waterpark (Canada) over the weekend.

Police were called to the waterpark at around 10:30 p.m. Saturday. Officers allege a man followed and inappropriately touched six teenage girls while they were swimming at the waterpark. Pattison said all six girls were under the age of 16.

“The girls were very courageous in coming forward and talking to the lifeguard, that’s not always the case,” Pattison said. “It’s very traumatizing and I’m sure it made them feel extremely vulnerable so they deserve our support.” Police arrested a man on scene and took him into custody.

The waterpark was booked out by the Non-Academic Staff Association (NASA) at the time. The association represents non-academic staff working on the University of Alberta campus.

Nancy Furlong with NASA said the man was not a member of the association. She also said that while the organization had the waterpark booked, there were other people at the facility at the time who were not part of their group. Furlong said a note was sent out to everyone who purchased tickets through NASA informing them of what happened.

Pattison said police believe there are other complainants and he’s urging them to come forward.

The Zebra Child Protection Centre, which offers support to children who have experienced abuse, stressed the importance of reporting child abuse, believing that child and being there to support them.

“Child abuse is probably one of the most under-reported crimes in the community,” said Lauren Andrews, with the Zebra Child Protection Centre. “So it’s really up to us as the community, as a whole, to be the eyes and ears of the city of Edmonton to make sure that these children and these survivors of child abuse are getting the support that they need.”

Soleiman Hajj Soleiman, a Syrian refugee and father of six, has since been charged with six counts of sexual assault and six counts of sexual interference.

The Edmonton Police Service Zebra Child Protection Section has taken over the investigation. Anyone who may have witnessed anything unusual at the pool is asked to contact the EPS at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online.

Witches in pointy hats demonstrate in support of Planned Parenthood abortion

The Left don’t even bother to wear their masks anymore.

Last weekend, pro-lifers held rallies before some 200 Planned Parenthood clinics abortion mills across America.

At a Planned Parenthood in St. Paul, Minnesota, three pro-aborts demonstrated in support of killing innocent little human beings. Real witches who belong to a local coven, the ghoulish pro-aborts were in full witch’s garb, complete with black pointy hats.

planned-parenthood-witches

Kristan Hawkins reports for LifeNews, Feb. 13, 2017:

This weekend, there were pro-life #ProtestPP rallies scheduled at more than a quarter, over 200, of Planned Parenthoods across our nation. And the violence and hatred that our team saw at multiple locations was not only frightening but it was a clear warning sign to you and me.

In Portland, where our Northwest Coordinator (Katie) spoke, the abortion supporters were already at the Planned Parenthood by the time the pro-lifers arrived for their rally. They immediately started yelling obscenities, swinging long hard plastic jump-ropes around hitting the pro-lifers, pushing and shoving those who gathered, and had signs that said “abort everyone,” “p*ssy bites back,” “your kids an a**hole,” “thank God for abortions,” etc.

In Washington, D.C. where our Capitol Area Coordinator (Lori) spoke, police had to shove abortion supporters back as they blocked the streets the pro-lifers had gotten a permit to march down during their prayer walk. The police ended up escorting the pro-lifers all the way to their destination to protect them.

In St. Paul, where I spoke, there were witches that came out to support Planned Parenthood and only spoke to us to tell us the name of their coven. When streaming coverage of the event live on Facebook, we began to ask the abortion supporters about why they were there. One woman with a “keep your laws off of my body” sign tried to grab and steal my camera phone. How about, keep your hands off my phone!

Over the past few years, we’ve been lucky. We would hold rallies and protests and only a few abortion supporters would come out to heckle us.

But something has changed in our nation.

The other side knows that they are losing. We’ve pushed the pro-abortion lobby into a corner. They are desperate and now they feel like they have to push back harder than ever before…and they don’t fight fair.

And they don’t care about freedom of speech or who has a permit to rally or not. They don’t care that there are children present. They don’t care if someone on our side gets hurt.

This is important because we can’t let the radicals who advocate for taxpayer-funded abortions in all nine months drive the media narrative. Every time they rally, we need to be there in stark comparison, with smiling, youthful faces. We need to show our nation’s media and those politicians in Washington who pay attention to the media that this generation really is pro-life and we are expecting them to hold up to their promises.

When our team crashed the so-called “Women’s March” last month, I got a first-hand glimpse of what our nation would look like without faith. The people who had gathered in D.C. were angry, sad, and desperate. You see, the Left has said that believing in God is anti-intellectual, it’s passé, yet they have replaced their beliefs in sinners, fallen men and women like you and me. So when their candidate lost the presidential election this November, they lost all hope.

But the Pro-Life Generation is different. Even in the years when we knew President Obama and Congress were going to do everything possible to fund the abortion industry and push back against any life-saving legislation, when we gathered at the March for Life, there was still a sense of joy and hope…because we placed it in something else, someone else.

And this is what makes the other side so dangerous, they have lost their hope, and they have nothing left to lose.

This is Chiraq: Two girls, ages 11 and 12, shot in the south side over the weekend of violence

blacks protesting black-on-black crimes

Paging the good mayor, those who voted for him and #BLM. “Crickets.”

From MyFoxChicago: An 11-year-old girl was shot in the head Saturday night in the Parkway Gardens neighborhood on the South Side.

The girl was sitting in the rear seat of a vehicle about 7:40 p.m. in the 6500 block of South King Drive when gunfire was heard and she was discovered with a gunshot wound to her head, Chicago Police said. She was taken to Comer Children’s Hospital in critical condition, police said. No one was in custody as Area Central detectives investigate.

Also Saturday night, a 12-year-old girl was shot and critically wounded in West Englewood. She was playing with friends about 7:15 p.m. outside in the 1900 block of West 57th Street when gunfire erupted and she was shot in the head, according to Chicago Police.

The girl, who was not thought to be the intended target of the shooting, was taken in critical condition to Stroger Hospital. Police initially said the victim was a woman, between 35 and 40 years old. No one was in custody as Area South detectives investigate.

The girls were among 18 shot in Chicago over the weekend, including three fatally. During the second weekend of February 2016, which was Presidents Day weekend, six people were killed and 19 wounded in shootings.

So far in 2017, 313 people have been shot in Chicago, according to Sun-Times records. At least ten of the victims have been children under the age of 14.
