The Pentagon caved in to (((Mikey Weinstein))) of the atheistic Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) again.
Caleb Parke reports for Fox News, Dec. 3, 2019, that for the past 20 years, U.S. military members have been able to wear dog tags with Bible verses on them, giving them light and hope in some of their darkest times. For some Gold Star families, this is one of their most cherished possessions to remember their loved one who gave the ultimate sacrifice.
Founded by Kenny Vaughan in 1998, Shields of Strength is a Texas-based company that makes Christian jewelry, beginning with a dog-tag with a Bible scripture which Vaughan had made for himself. The company now makes dog-tags with Bible verses for military members and their family, as well as other Christian-theme jewelry and apparel.
After Fox News reported on Shields of Strength last July, Weinstein complained to the Department of Defense (DOD), demanding the DOD ban the Bible verses dog-tags. “Soon after,” each military branch pulled or threatened to pull the trademark licenses that had been issued to Kenny Vaughan from Shields of Strength.
Berry, a Marine Corps combat veteran who served in Afghanistan, told Fox News: “Just when I didn’t think Mikey Weinstein could stoop any lower, he pulled a stunt like that. He’d rather take it away from them just to raise his own publicity than support our service members … that’s pretty cowardly and that’s cruel.”
Vaughan said he’s seen soldiers, who have to leave their Bible behind, carry their Shields of Strength dog-tags with them; oftentimes, the soldiers would stand in line for hours just to get one: “The love of Jesus changed my life forever. It’s the most valuable thing I have to offer anyone is God’s Word. No one needs it more than a young man or woman fighting for our freedom and we’re going to fight for them.”
An acquaintance of mine who’s a Constitutional Law attorney, says:
“While I would absolutely oppose the military issuing such tags (even with a request from the servicemember) it is outrageous that servicemembers can’t voluntarily inscribe their own tags. From a legal point of view, if the military allows any inscriptions at all (like “I Love Mom”) then banning religious ones is content discrimination.That triggers strict (constitutional) scrutiny.”
Prayer in School
Meanwhile, on January 16, 2020, President Trump followed through on his promise to the Evangelicals for Trump rally in Miami on January 3 to “safeguard students’ and teachers’ First Amendment rights to pray in our schools” through a directive from the Department of Education.
As reportedby the AP and Christianity Today, the Department of Education issued a guidance on school prayer, the first updated guidance since 2003. The directive orders states to verify that school districts have no policies limiting constitutionally protected prayer, refer violators to the Education Department, and provide ways for making complaints against schools.
From the Department of Education’s press releaseof January 16, 2020:
[F]or the first time since 2003, the Department will …issue today updated guidance on constitutionally protected prayer in public elementary and secondary schools. The Department is required by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act, to update this guidance every two years. The guidance explains the ESEA’s requirement that states report which local educational agencies have not certified that they do not have any policy that prevents, or otherwise denies participation in, constitutionally protected prayer. The ESEA also requires states to report complaints against a local educational agency that allegedly denies a person, including a student or employee, the right to engage in constitutionally protected prayer. The guidance clarifies that the ESEA requires states to provide a clear process for students, parents, and teachers to report violations of their right to pray. Under the ESEA, states must fulfill these reporting requirements by November 1 of each year.
Christianity Today reminds us that public schools have been barred from leading students in classroom prayer since 1962, when the Supreme Court said it violated a First Amendment clause forbidding the establishment of a government religion. Later decisions extended the ban to school graduation ceremonies and, under certain circumstances, school athletic games.
Civil liberties groups say the firewall protects religious minorities and ensures fair treatment of all faiths. But many Christians say courts and schools have pushed too far against the right to free religious expression. Surveys find that Americans remain largely in favor of prayer in public schools:
According to General Social Survey data analyzed by political scientist Ryan Burge, just 20–35% of Christians support a ban against requiring reading the Lord’s Prayer or the Bible in public schools, and the religiously unaffiliated are evenly divided on the question.
A 2019 Pew Research Center survey found 41% of teens in public schools, including 68% of evangelicals, said they view teacher-led prayer in class as appropriate. A majority of teens in general (82%) and evangelical teens (64%) say there are no religious support or prayer groups that meet in their school.
South Dakota’s Republican Governor Kristi Noem, 48, is also fighting back against the Left’s tyranny.
In March 2019, Noem signed a law requiring every public school throughout the state to display an “In God We Trust” sign on their premises beginning in the fall semester. The law went into effect last July.
Noem would make a great Vice President on Trump’s 2020 ticket!

Surely, I wait for the LORD; who bends down to me and hears my cry, Draws me up from the pit of destruction, out of the muddy clay, Sets my feet upon rock, steadies my steps, And puts a new song in my mouth, a hymn to our God. Many shall look on in fear and they shall trust in the LORD.
Blessed the man who sets his security in the LORD, who turns not to the arrogant or to those who stray after falsehood. You, yes you, O LORD, my God, have done many wondrous deeds! And in your plans for us there is none to equal you. Should I wish to declare or tell them, too many are they to recount.
Sacrifice and offering you do not want; you opened my ears. Holocaust and sin-offering you do not request; so I said, “See; I come with an inscribed scroll written upon me. I delight to do your will, my God; your law is in my inner being!”
When I sing of your righteousness in a great assembly, See, I do not restrain my lips; as you, LORD, know. I do not conceal your righteousness within my heart; I speak of your loyalty and your salvation. I do not hide your mercy or faithfulness from a great assembly.
LORD, may you not withhold your compassion from me; May your mercy and your faithfulness continually protect me. But evils surround me until they cannot be counted. My sins overtake me, so that I can no longer see. They are more numerous than the hairs of my head; my courage fails me. LORD, graciously rescue me! Come quickly to help me, LORD!
May those who seek to destroy my life be shamed and confounded. Turn back in disgrace those who desire my ruin. Let those who say to me “Aha!” Be made desolate on account of their shame. While those who seek you rejoice and be glad in you. May those who long for your salvation always say, “The LORD is great.”
Though I am afflicted and poor, my Lord keeps me in mind. You are my help and deliverer; my God, do not delay!
Sing along! Here’s the lyrics:
Sing unto the Lord a new song
Sing unto the Lord all the earth (x2)
For God is great and greatly to be praised (x2)
He put a new song in my mouth
A hymn of praise unto our God
Many will see and fear – And put their trust in the Lord (x2)
As we worship the Lord in spirit and in truth
Let the voice of the Lord be heard in all the earth
And may the peace and love of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you!
Since last November 6’s election that gave control of Virginia’s entire state government to Democrats, led by pro-abort Gov. Ralph Northam (D), Democrats have been on a tear to impose gun control. See:
Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL), a grassroots gun-rights organization, called for a rally next Monday, January 20, at the state capitol in Richmond, to lobby VA legislators not to vote away Virginians’ Second Amendment-guaranteed gun rights. VCDL President Phillip Van Cleave told Liberty Nation “the state is green with sanctuaries” and that he expects a massive turnout.
Monday, January 20, is Martin Luther King Jr. Day — a day known as “Lobby day” in Virginia politics as advocates for a number of causes use the holiday to try and buttonhole lawmakers. On that day, pro-gun and gun-control advocates would hold rallies. Jeff Katz, the host of a popular radio show on WRVA, saidthousands of citizens are expected at the gun-rights rally next Monday because “People are outraged. This is the tipping point.”
Democrat Ralph Northam had men in black face and a KKK hood in his 1984 medical school yearbook.
Reacting to the planned rally, Governor Northam declared a state of emergency banning guns and “weapons of all kinds” from the state capitol beginning tomorrow, January 17, through next Tuesday, January 21.
The Associated Press reports that on Jan. 15, 2020, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam declared a state of emergency over threats of “armed militia groups storming our Capitol” ahead of a gun-rights rally next Monday. The emergency order will ban weapons of all kinds, including firearms, helmets and shields, from the Capitol grounds starting Friday and continuing through Tuesday.
Northam said the emergency order was necessary to protect public safety because of potential violence from out-of-state groups at the Monday rally. Claiming that “law enforcement agencies” consider the rally to pose “credible, serious threats,” Northam said some of the rhetoric used by groups planning to attend Monday’s rally is similar to what was said in the lead-up to last year’s so-called “white nationalist” rally in Charlottesville, VA, and that “We will not allow that mayhem and violence to happen here.”
Virginia Republicans, who did not even field candidates in many precincts in last November’s election, thereby ceding victory to the Democrats, were mixed in their response:
VA House Minority Leader Del. Todd Gilbert lamented that “there are legitimate concerns of a few bad actors hijacking the rally.”
But Republican Party of Virginia Chairman Jack Wilson condemned Northam’s declaration in a statement: “Northam and the rest of the Virginia Democrats have made their session goal crystal clear: a disarmed, vulnerable, and subservient citizenry.”
Northam’s emergency announcement comes days after Democratic leaders used a special rules committee to ban guns inside the Capitol and a legislative office building. That ban did not include Capitol grounds, which are under the governor’s control.
InfoWars has an audio recording of an unnamed Virginia State police officer saying that Barack Obama is orchestrating (“running”) Northam’s state of emergency, and that “there are people in high places in [VA] government” who are “told to do…ignore Trump, pipe down, and the people are just scared and just frustrated.”
On the Todd Starnes radio show, Liberty University president, Jerry Falwell Jr. vows he will “call for civil disobedience if the Democrats go through with this [state of emergency]. You don’t mess with people’s guns in this part of the state. They [Democrats] don’t know what they’ve gotten into and they’re going to find out the hard way, I’m afraid.”
“MIAMI – A senior U.S. official confirmed to FOX News that the severed fingers of five Western hostages were delivered to U.S. government officials in Iraq, giving the men’s relatives hope that they are still alive.
The Austrian weekly magazine News first reported the delivery of the five fingers in Wednesday’s edition, citing unidentified authorities working on the case.
One of the kidnap victims in Iraq was a University of Florida student. The hostages have been missing for more than a year and U.S. authorities in Baghdad recently were sent their severed fingers.
Four of the men had been working as contractors when they were captured in a brazen ambush of their 43-truck supply convoy on Nov. 16, 2006.The men were working for Crescent Security Group, a Kuwait-based private security company.
They were kidnapped by men in Iraqi police uniforms who ambushed the convoy they were escorting near the southern city of Safwan.Patrick Reuben, a Minneapolis police officer whose twin brother, Paul Reuben, is among the missing, said late Wednesday the FBI told his family that “the fingers were confirmed to be those of the hostages.”
DNA samples had been identified 4 of the hostages. “John Young of Kansas City, who was seized with them. None of the fingers belonged to him”.
The story also informs us that the Western hostages appeared in two hostage videos released in December 2006 and January 2007 where demands were made for the United States to withdraw troops from Iraq and to free all Iraqi priosners.
“NEW YORK (AP) _ A kidnapped 12-year-old boy whose finger was cut off to persuade his drug- dealing brother to pay ransom was found dead in a pile of plastic bags just days after the brother was killed, police said Monday.”
In this case the family was able to identify the body without the need for DNA testing.
Hostages severed fingers or other body parts delivered with the kidnappers demands is not a new concept. The problem is that it doesn’t really prove the hostage is the person they say it is. The only way to know for sure it’s the person is through DNA testing. This is common knowledge. It’s the same procedure when it comes to identifying remains of mangled bodies in car accidents, fire victims or a foot found in the woods without a body attached to it. If the body is missing or destroyed beyond recognition the only way to get a positive identification is with a DNA test. In some cases the victim may have some form of identification on them but that is not a 100% guarantee.
“Okay, DNA, two stories from 1990 and 2008. What’s the point?”
These two stories are just 2 examples out of thousands of how body parts have been used to identify people. The severed fingers story is more relevant to what I am discussing today. There are 2 main points to keep in mind. DNA testing was required to identify the identity of the fingers owners. Second point just proof that people in Iraq completely understand how body parts can be used to prove identity when a complete body is not present. (Shiite Muslim militias alegedly were the kidnappers of the 4 men)
It’s not inconceivable that people in the Middle East could fake a persons death and leave a body part behind to to identify the body. Perhaps a hand with a ring on one it’s fingers.
“People have faked their own deaths”
TOM CAREW, author of “Jihad!” Carew was really Philip Sessarego. Served in the regular British army, not the SAS. Sessarego had faked his death in a car bombing in Croatia and reinvented himself as the dashing Carew in 1993.
DAVID FRIEDLAND, New Jersey state senator. Faked his death in a scuba-diving accident in the Bahamas.
JOHN STONEHOUSE, British Labour lawmaker. Faked his own death by leaving his clothes in a bundle on a Miami beach in 1974. (20 years after his death it was revealed that Stonehouse had been a Czech spy throughout the 1960s)
KEN KESEYK, published novel “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”. Parked on a cliff-side road in California. In his truck was suicide note. He wrote “Ocean, Ocean, I’ll beat you in the end” . A friend smuggled him into Mexico in the trunk of his car.
These are just a few examples of people that have faked their own deaths. Three of these examples were facing jail time. Each felt they had to escape in order to keep their freedom or to stay alive.
In 2011 Igor Vorotinov’s dead body was found. He turned up alive a couple of years later. He used someone elses body to fake his own death.
Could Iranian general Qassem Soleimani fake his death if someone gave him a hand?
There is no doubt in my mind that the the drone nailed the vehicles that it targeted. In case you missed it, below is a video of the airstrike and the aftermath.
As you can see in the video both vehicles are destroyed. Obviously, everyone in those vehicles were killed. So the question is “who were in the vehicles?”
There are mixed stories as to how many people were in the vehicles. My focus is on just one of the people that we are told was riding in one of the vehicles and is now dead. That would be Qassem Soleimani.
We are told the missle strike killed him. I found these 2 photos on Twitter along with the following message,
“Bad Death With One Hundred Virtues Do you, your father, be a martyr of anything? This fate awaits the rest of the IRGC commanders and those around them “
*second image is a link because the image is pretty gruesome
The tweet didn’t say if the body in the second image was Qassem Soleimani. To the best of my knowledge, the hand with the ring is all that’s left of him.
This is the part that where I see some problems. Besides being told Soleimani was in one of the cars, all we have is a hand with a Ring. They have confirmed they belonged to Soleimani simply because he wore a ring with a red stone.
For all we know that hand and ring could belong to this guy, He has a hand. He has a red ring,
I went ahead and found some images of Soleimani while he was wearing his rings. I tried to match them with the ring on the severed hand My results were that none of the images I found matched the severed hand. I’ve provided two images of my comparisons. You will notice the the setting of the severed hand is different the the rest. I found additional images and had the same results.
Here is a closer view.
Sorry, but a severed hand with a ring with a red stone is not enough to convince me. It’s disappointing that so many people do not question this. DNA?
I’m sure Trump and Pompeo think the evil general is dead. That was their mission. The airstrike was a perfect hit. Looks like a perfect kill. I would bet there were US assets on the ground to verify the hit. But there are some questions that should be asked.
It’s this not a perfect time to take advantage of Trump’s huge ego?
I Did anyone pay attention to the plane that Soleimani flew in on?
Did anyone see who got off the plane when the two cars departed?
Did anyone check the passenger log/crew log?
Where was the planes next destination and were it’s passengers?
Why did Iran respond with such a weak attack?
The US killed their most loved general. Iran responded by killing how many Americans? Zero. I really find that hard to believe?
In a head to head war, the US would crush Iran and bring it to it’s knees in a few days at the most. Why is Iran being made out as some huge threat to the USA?
The U.S. has pursued Soleimani for decades The State Department revealed last year that his operations within Iraq since 2003 killed more than 600 American personnel. He has been sneaking around organizing terrorist groups or years. As untounhable as Soleimani thinks he is, he’s not stupid. He has to know he is a target. So why was his trip to Iraq not kept in secret?
We are told Soleimani went to Iraq to meet with politicians and military allies. Trump had planned 8 months ago to take out Soleimani. Around June or July of 2019 Iran claimed to have captured 17 CIA agents. Is it not possible that some of those captured agents talked?
Is it possible Soleimani learned about the hit on him and took precautions. Maybe the two cars were decoys and he stayed on the plane. Did he fool the world?
Soleimani has been reported dead on several occasions in the past. It didn’t get much attention. Why all the attention now?
Where is the DNA proof?
These are all important questions that require answers.
What it gets down to is either you trust the information presented to you from the MSM, our government, Iran, Iraq or any other government or you don’t trust it.
Will you accept a severed hand wearing a ring with a red stone as unconditional truth? Keep in mind that no match was found for the ring.
Remember that In April ,1979, the current regime had taken control of Iran.
In November, 1979, Iranian students seized US embassy personnel. Fifty-two hostages were held for 444 days until January 1981. This was done right after they learned that the Shah of Iran(ex-leader and king of Iran) went to the United States for cancer treatment. The current regime has no love for the USA.
No matter how you look at it, this is something that should be discussed and investigated.
Additional General information on Iran.
This does not include any current spy vs spy, CIA, etc operations that may or may not exist. I like to think this is the minimun amount of knowledege a person should before they can make any sort of accurate analysis on Iran. Some will say more, some will say less.
FACTUAL KEY HISTORICAL INFORMATION ON IRAN
This is just review of what I felt were the key events. Many events were left out. The data is still accurate. And the end result the same.
The Nazis were in Iran in WWII. Iran didn’t kick them out. During its occupation by the Nazi’s Iran was controlled by monarch Rezā Shāh. At the Tehran Conference of 1943, the Allies(USA, USSR,GB, France,Australia, etc) issued the Tehran Declaration. It gave Iran independence and boundaries when war ended.(USSR didn’t leave until 1946). Mohammad Reza Pahlavas had taken his fathers place as Shah(King of Iran). In 1949 He was able to get the Senate of Iran formed. In 1951 Reza(the Shah) appointed Mohammad Mosaddegh as Prime Minister(PM) after he was approved by the Parliament.
Mosaddegh took control of the British built/owned oil refineries which caused problems for Iran. A British boycott of Iran’s oil had been iniated and enforced. . During Mosaddeh time as PM part of his land reform act was that land owners give 20% of their land to its tenants. During his time as PM Iran he implemented his socialist ideologies and was destroying Iran’s economy.
In 1951, Realizing that the opposition would take the vast majority of the provincial seats, Mosaddegh stopped the voting when it reached 79 deputies. Just enough to form a parliamentary quorum. He suspended the elections using Foreign influence as the reason.
In 1952. Mosaddeh made some requests to parliament that would have given him more power in the government, while weakening the Shah’s position. After being denied the request, he resigned.
Mosaddegh loyalist, the National Front, Islamist, Tudeh. socialist parties along with various Nationalist started protest and causing problems. They called for the assassinations of the Shah and other royalists. Major strikes broke out in all of Iran’s major towns, with the Bazaar closing in Tehran. Over 250 demonstrators in Tehran, Ramadan, Ahvaz, Isfahan, and Kermanshah were killed or suffered serious injuries. After 5 days the military quit trying to maintain order.
The shah put Mosaddegh back as PM. Mosaddegh then managed to get full control of the military. He then continued to work against the Shah until he was removed.
As his dictatorial powers grew, his political supporters were turning on him, By 1953 Mosaddeh had lost a lot of support from members of parliment and others throughout the government, including one of his key political allies, House Speaker Ayatollah AbolGhasem Kashani.
Iranians distrust in Mosaddeh grew. Largley because of the failing economy. Britain had been boycotting Iran after he took control of British refineries so no money had been coming in from oil.
In April, 1953 in America funds were appoved to be used to pay for activities, operations that could assist in the removal of PM Mosaddegh. Britain wanted its refineries back. America was worried about his close ties to communism(so we are told). Mosaddeh had supporters that were socialist and communist supporters. Part of the CIA’s plan was to make it appear like Mosaddegh he was a communist.
In August 1953, the Shah formally dismissed the prime minister in a written decree, an act that had been made part of the constitution during the Constitution Assembly of 1949. Mossadegh escaped and then turned himself in. He ended up getting 3 years solitary confinement in a military prison in December, 1953. He died under house arrest in 1967. They buried him in his living room. He wasn’t allowed to have a funeral.
Martial law ended in 1957. Iran began modernization economic growth at an unprecedented rate. The US paid for a large part of Irans reconstruction.
In early June 1963 several days of massive rioting occurred in support of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini following the cleric’s arrest for a speech attacking the shah.
In the early 70s region’s strongest military power. Iran had problems with leftist guerrilla groups such as Mujaheddin-e-Khalq (MEK)that attacked the regime along with foreign targets. We are told 1978 the first major demonstrations took place of the Islamic Revolution. The movement, itself, had started long before this date.
In January 1979 Mohammad Reza Pahlavi left the country after strikes and demonstrations paralyzed the country.
In February 1979 Ayatollah Khomeini returned to Tehran.
On February 11, 1979 Iran’s military gave up again declared itself “neutral” after guerrillas and rebel troops overwhelmed troops loyal to the Shah in armed street fighting.
In April 1979 officially became an Islamic Republic.
Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini became Supreme Leader of Iran until his death in 1989.
Mohammad Mosaddegh was removed because he abused his power. The Shah could have ruled with an Iron Fist, but he chose the route where his country prospers. When the Shah had regained control of the country. Iran had did exactly that, prosper. Mosaddegh desire for power held Iran back. He reduced the size of the army, Iran’s army couldn’t even keep control of country. Two times we witnessed this. Ultimately, this is how the Shah lost control of the country. Too small of an army. ( Exactly what Obama was trying to do with the military in the USA. Reduce our army so it could be overpowered.)
Attempting to overthrow a king of a country is usually a penalty of death. Mosaddegh got very lucky.
MORE OBVIOUS TRUTH THAT GET SKIPPED
People keep referring to Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi as a dictator. That simply isn’t true. From 1501 until 1979 Iran had been a monarchy ruled by an emperor almost without interruption. When Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlav replaced his father initially there were hopes that post-occupation Iran could become a constitutional monarchy.
The Shah willingly gave up some of his power and kept a” hands-off role” in government. allowing parliament to hold a lot of power.
“Some elections were held in the first shaky years, although they remained mired in corruption. “Parliament became chronically unstable, and from the 1947 to 1951 period Iran saw the rise and fall of six different prime ministers. Pahlavi increased his political power by convening the Iran Constituent Assembly, 1949, which finally formed the Senate of Iran, a legislative upper house allowed for in the 1906 constitution.”
“His father, Rezā Shāh was all about moderization. He encouraged women not to wear their hijabs. He wanted his people to wear the same type of clothing the people in the west were wearing. He wanted his people to evolve. His mistake was not kicking out the Germans in WWII. They had him convinced that they were going to win the war. His son Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlav gave Iranians even more freedom.”
The Shah was the one that was overthrown by a dictator, Say yid Ruhollah Khomeini(9 years as Supreme Leader of Iran).
The Supreme leader is above the president in Iran. The current one is Say yid Ali Djamena. Almost 31 years as Supreme Leader.
The Supreme Leader is elected and overseen by the Assembly of Experts. Candidates for membership at the Assembly of Experts (including the President and the parliament are appointed by the Guardian Council, whose members in turn, are appointed by the Supreme Leader.
All directly-elected members of the Assembly of Experts still require the Supreme Leader’s approval even after the Guardian Council’s vetting process.
The supreme leader is considered always right.
The Supreme leader is never questioned.
The Supreme Leader is the commander-in-chief of the armed forces and the provisional head of the three branches of the state the Judiciary, the Legislature, and the Executive
Elections in are currently for show in Iran.
The Supreme leader is a dictator.
People should be perfectly clear that from the years 501 to 1979 Iran had been controlled by a king or emperor. Much like Great Britain with an Islamic twist. The current form of government has only existed since 1979. They like to call it a theocracy and presidential democracy. The truth is the country is controlled by 1 man, the Ayatollah. He has final say and controll of everything. He cannot be questioned. How would you define him and his role?
The problem is not Iran in general. The problem is Islamic agression. Qassem Soleimani isn’t loved because of the country he is from. He’s not loved because he defends Iran. All Iranians don’t love him. He is only loved by Muslims. He is a soldier of Islam. He fights for Islam. That is why Muslims in other countries love him.
You will not find one christian in the Middle East that loves Soleimani. Not unless they are from America and are a liberal or democrat. Christian democrats and Christian liberals in America seem to love Soleimani. Actually, I’ll rephrase that. Satan worshipping democrats and Satan worshipping liberals love Soleimani. Iran’s army isn’t the army of Iran, to protect Iran. It’s the army of Islam, to protect Muslims.
Islam becomes the religion of peace only when every person on the planet is Muslim.
Always fact check and do your own research.

*CIA operation “Ajax” took place during the year of 1953
Judicial Watch (JW), the DC-based citizens’ watchdog group, is the national leader in enforcing the National Voters Registration Act, which requires states and counties to take reasonable steps to clean their voting rolls by removing ineligible registrations (voters who had died or moved). Below are some examples of JW’s success:
In 2018, the Supreme Court upheld a massive voter roll clean up that resulted from a Judicial Watch settlement of a federal lawsuit with Ohio.
In 2019, California also settled a similar lawsuit with Judicial Watch, and began removing up to 1.5 million “inactive” names from Los Angeles County voting rolls.
In 2019, Kentucky also began a cleanup of up to 250,00 names after it entered into a consent decree to end another Judicial Watch lawsuit.
According to Judicial Watch’s analysis of data released by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) this year:
There are 378 counties nationwide with registration rates of more than 100%. Altogether, those counties have 2.5 million more voter registrations than citizens living there and old enough to vote.
San Diego County has one of the highest registration rates in the U.S., with a registration rate of 117%, even after the county had removed 500,000 inactive names from voter rolls following Judicial Watch’s settlement with Los Angeles County.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton: “Dirty voting rolls can mean dirty elections and Judicial Watch will insist, in court if necessary, that states follow federal law to clean up their voting rolls. Previous Judicial Watch lawsuits have already led to major cleanups in California, Kentucky, Indiana, and Ohio – but more needs to be done. It is common sense that voters who die or move away be removed from the voting rolls.”
On Jan. 2, 2020, JW sentnotice-of-violation lettersto 19 large counties in five states that it will sue unless the jurisdictions take steps to comply with the law and remove ineligible voter registrations within 90 days.
In the letters, Judicial Watch explains that implausibly high registration rates raise legal concerns:
An unusually high registration rate suggests that a jurisdiction is not removing voters who have died or who have moved elsewhere, as required by [federal law].
Judicial Watch also considers how many registrations were ultimately removed from the voter rolls because a registrant [had moved]. If few or no voters were removed…the jurisdiction is obviously failing to comply . . . States must report the number of such removals to the EAC.
The following are the 19 counties with excessive registration rates which Judicial Watch is threatening to sue. I found that in every county, except Chester County, PA, Democrats outnumber Republicans in registered voters. But Chester County voted Democrat in 2008 (for Obama by 9%) and in 2016 (for Hillary Clinton by 9.4%):
Imperial County: Previously strongly Republican, Imperial County is now a Democratic stronghold in presidential, congressional and local elections. The last Republican to win a majority in the county was George H. W. Bush in 1988. Democrat registered voters now outnumber Republicans 47.1% to 18.2%.
Monterey County: Since 1992, the county has become a Democratic stronghold in Presidential and congressional elections, with George H.W. Bush in 1988 being the last Republican to win Monterey County. Democrat registered voters now outnumber Republicans 48.7% to 20.2%.
Orange County: In 2016, Hillary Clinton became the first Democrat since 1936 to carry Orange County in a presidential election and in the 2018 midterm elections the Democratic Party gained control of every Congressional seat in the county. The number of registered Democrats surpassed the number of registered Republicans in the county in August 2019.
Riverside County: Historically a Republican county in presidential and congressional elections, Riverside County voted for Bill Clinton in 1992; narrowly voted for Obama in 2008; then voted again by a plurality for Obama in 2012. Democrat registered voters now outnumber Republicans 36.8% to 32.1%.
San Diego County: Historically a Republican stronghold, San Diego County began voting Democrats in presidential elections — for Bill Clinton, Barack Obama twice, and Hillary Clinton in 2016. Democrat registered voters now outnumber Republicans 35.7% to 27.3%.
San Francisco County: Democrat registered voters overwhelmingly outnumber Republicans 56.8% to 6.4%.
San Mateo County: Democrat registered voters far outnumber Republicans 50% to 14.3%.
On January 18, 2019, a deceptively-edited video posted to social media ignited a media-driven public lynching of a group of teenage boys from the all-male Covington Catholic High School in Park Hills, Kentucky.
That day, the boys, wearing red Make America Great Again (MAGA) hats and sweatshirts, participated in the March for Life in Washington, DC. The video shows the boys surrounding, laughing and jeering at an elderly Native American man singing and playing a drum, who is identified as Nathan Phillips, an Omaha elder and Vietnam veteran.
Wiping away tears, Phillips said: “When I was there singing, I heard them [Covington boys] saying ‘Build that wall, build that wall’. This is indigenous lands. We’re not supposed to have walls here. We never did.” (WDBJ7.com)
The Covington boys were roundly denounced by media outlets and their hometown mayor. The Covington Catholic School, Diocese and Archdiocese issued abject apologies and condemnation of the students.
It turns out the full video of the incident shows an entirely different version of what happened.
Instead of the Covington boys harassing Phillips, it was Phillips and a group of fellow Native American activists who approached the boys who were doing school cheers. (The March for Life coincided with an Indigenous People’s Rally.)
As you can see in the video below, posted to YouTube on January 18, the day of the incident, Phillips tests several of the boys, then targets one of them (0:58 mark). Chanting, Phillips gets in the boy’s face with a metal drumstick and drum. Another Native American man tells one of the students, “White people go back to Europe. This is not your land.”
It got worse.
One of the Covington students told the Gateway Pundit that they were waiting for their school bus and doing school cheers when four Black Israelites got belligerent with them: “We were standing there when a group of four African Americans started calling us ‘crackers’ and ‘school shooters’” and told one of the Covington students, who is black, that “we will harvest his organs” when he gets older.
Although the full video of the incident was posted to Facebook on January 18, the truth didn’t stop the media lynching. Nor did the truth stop Jack Morrissey, a Hollywood producer of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and two Twilight Saga movies that romanticize blood-sucking soul-less vampires, from calling for the murder of the Covington boys in a tweet on January 19, 2019, saying the boys should be put “screaming, hats first, into the woodchipper.”
Unlike too many conservatives and Christians who don’t fight back against the media’s bullying and defamation, the parents of one of the Covington boys, Nick Sandmann, decided to do something.
Now, CNN has settled the lawsuit with Sandmann, which effectively is an admission of guilt from CNN.
Mike Brest reports for the Washington Examiner, Jan. 7, 2020, that the amount of CNN’s settlement remains unknown, but a CNN representative confirmed the suit’s resolution to the Washington Examiner.
The suit against CNN, which was filed last March, addressed four television broadcasts and nine articles specifically, claiming that they contain statements toward or about Sandmann that are defamatory. It sought $75 million for harm to Sandmann’s reputation and $200 million in punitive damages.
The suit read: “The CNN accusations are totally and unequivocally false and CNN would have known them to be untrue had it undertaken any reasonable efforts to verify their accuracy before publication of its false and defamatory accusations.”
Sandmann’s attorney, Lin Wood, told Fox News’s Mark Levin last year that CNN “was probably more vicious in its direct attacks on Nicholas than the Washington Post. And CNN goes into millions of individuals’ homes,” adding that the network “couldn’t resist the idea that here’s a guy with a young boy, that Make America Great Again cap on. So they go after him.”
I heard on Rush Limbaugh today that NBC and Washington Post will also settle their lawsuits.
To the growing list of Virginia Democrats’ tyranny and malice should be added a bill that will change the character of quiet suburbs by overriding local zoning officials to legalize multi-family housing in every neighborhood currently zoned for single-family homes.
On January 8, 2020, Virginia Assemblyman Ibraheem S. Samirah introduced House Bill no. 152 (HB-152), “A BILL to amend the Code of Virginia by adding a section numbered 15.2-2292.2, relating to zoning two-family development on single-family lots,” which will change the suburbs by overriding local zoning officials to permit multi-family housing in all neighborhoods now zoned for single-family housing.
Born in Chicago, IL, of Palestinian parents, Ibraheem Samirah is a Democrat who was elected in February 2019 in a special election to the Virginia House of Delegates for the 86th district, which includes parts of Fairfax and Loudoun Counties in suburban Washington, D.C. Samirah was re-elected to a full-term in November 2019.
According to the Chicago Tribune, the U.S. government had banned from the U.S. for a decade Samirah’s father, Jordanian refugee Sabri Samirah, in part because of his membership in the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist group. (Daily Caller)
Below is the available text of HB 152:
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of Virginia:
That the Code of Virginia is amended by adding a section numbered 15.2-2292.2 as follows:
12§ 15.2-2292.2. Two-family development allowed on lots zoned for single-family use.
All localities adopting a zoning ordinance under the provisions of this article shall allow development or redevelopment of middle housing residential units upon each lot zoned for single-family residential use.For purposes of this section, “middle housing” means a two-family residential unit, including duplexes, townhouses, cottages, and any similar structure by whatever name it may be known. Such structures shall not require a special use permit or be subjected to any other local requirements beyond those imposed upon other authorized residential uses. Localities may regulate the siting, design, and environmental standards of middle housing residential units, including setback requirements, provided that the regulations do not, individually or cumulatively, discourage the development of all middle housing types permitted through unreasonable costs or delay. Nothing in this section shall prohibit local governments from permitting (i) single-family dwellings in areas zoned to allow for single-family dwellings, or (ii) middle housing in areas not required under this section.
What HB 152 doesn’t say is that its definition of “middle housing” as any two-family residential unit, includes public housing. In a tweet on December 22, 2019, Samirah telegraphed his intention to put public housing units in single-family housing zones:
Important Q [question] about new social/public housing programs: where are we going to put the units?
Under current zoning, new low-income housing is relegated to underinvested neighborhoods, concentrating poverty more.
Ending exclusionary zoning has to be part of broader housing reform.
Samirah’s purpose for HB 152 is two-pronged:
(1) Retribution against “most white and wealthy” Virginians who are not aligned with the Democratic Party:
Samirah told the Daily Caller, “Single-family housing zones would become two-zoned. Areas that would be impacted most would be the suburbs that have not done their part in helping out…. Those are the areas that the state is having significant trouble dealing with. They’re living in a bubble.”
(2) Socialism — racial and class equality:
In response to a question about whether people who bought homes in spacious suburbs have valid, non-discriminaton reasons for preferring to live that way — including a love for nature and desire to preserve woods and streams — Samirah wrote on Facebook: “Caring about nature is very important, but the more dense a neighborhood is, the more energy efficient it is. Because middle housing is what’s most affordable for low-income people and people of color, banning that housing in well-off neighborhoods chalks up to modern-day redlining, locking folks out of areas with better access to schools, jobs, transit, and other services and amenities. I will certainly get pushback for this. Some will call it ‘state overreach.’ Some will express anxiety about neighborhood change. Some may even say that the supply issue doesn’t exist. But the research is clear: zoning is a barrier to more housing and integrated communities.”
Tim Hannigan, chairman of the Fairfax County Republican Committee, told the Daily Caller HB 152 “could completely change the character of suburban residential life, because of the urbanization that would develop. So much of the American dream is built upon this idea of finding a nice quiet place to raise your family, and that is under assault. This is a power-grab to take away the ability of local communities to establish their own zoning practices … literally trying to change the character of our communities.”
Other cities and states have passed bills similar to Virginia’s HB 152, including Oregon; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Austin, Texas; and Seattle, Washington.

When it comes to Iran there is something many people are not aware of. It is not a unified country. You have the Iranians and then you have the Islamic State (Islamic Republic of Iran, I call it the Islamic State) There are many Iranians in the Islamic State. But most of the Iranians don’t want the Islamic State there.
It’s illegal for citizens to carry guns. As you can imagine, that’s makes it next to impossible to take back their country. Too bad. Before 1978-1979 when the revolution happend and the Islamic State took over, Iran was just as modern as the USA. In some areas Iran was more advanced. Now look at the place. It’s a good example of how the Islamic State destroys everything they touch.
You rea can’t blame the citizens of Iran.(most of them) for the destruction of their country. The citizens of Iran want the Islamic State to take a long walk and give up control of the country. Most of the Iranians want to be friends with the rest of the world. Impossible, while the Islamic State has control
My headline claims that after killing Qasem Soleimani, Iranians like Trump while democrats and the MSM continue to hate him. I say this because after the death of the general, a contact of mine sent a message to Trump thanking him for taking out the their general. Meanwhile, here in America at the same time, the democrats along with the MSM were doing their thing. Attack Trump
My contact had more to say . Here is the message my contact sent me from Iran. I left his name out for his protection. This should give people a general idea of what’s going on In the head of some Iranians.
Hi. Most Iranians I know seek friendship with not only US, but also with all the other countries around the world. The islamic regime of Iran has been using the country’s resources to promote islamic ideologies and to support terrorist groups in the middle east. They’ve ruined the economy, Iranian culture and moralities just for their sick and radical thoughts. They want to keep the country isolated, so more people struggle with poverty and stay in the dark about what’s happening to them. However, thanks to social media and modern ways of communications the new generations cannot be controlled and brainwashed anymore. They all moved away from religion and extremism. They just want to live free and happy and get out of oppression.
You’re doing the right things, not listening to mainstream media. Even our government has invested a lot to push some fake journalist in famous American and British news agency to promote the Islamic regime and twist the truth. I always follow and support free Iranian journalists, but unfortunately they only have YouTube or radio channels in Persian.
The general was indeed an evil man, with heaps of terrorist activities outside and inside Iran. We do not hate Americans, most Iranians want regime change, and they have been fighting for it for years. Carrying firearms is banned in the country, so protestors always get killed and arrested in large numbers by the government. There’s no hope for reform, since the regime has now fully established itself as an absolute dictatorship. The last uprising was in November and the government shutdowned the internet for a week and killed 1500 Iranians in 3 days. Let me know if you have any other questions. Cheers
If you want the truth you have to go to the source. I’ll be posting updates as I receive them. If anyone had any questions they want to ask my contact, let me know and I forward them to him.
Respectfully, Deplorable Patriot
*This is a good example of why we should never give up our guns
Yesterday, Andrew Yang said something quite remarkable, akin to the child in the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale who alone said the truth — that the Emperor was not wearing any clothes,
On ABC This Week, Yang said no voters are asking him about the impeachment of President Trump, and that Americans are more worried about child and health care costs than they are about impeachment.
Then Yang said something even more remarkable — that the Democratic Party should ask themselves the “hard questions” of why Trump was elected, and that the primary reason why Trump was elected was the economy, specifically Trump’s “capitalizing” on the loss of manufacturing jobs in Midwest swing states.
“It’s clear the reason why Donald Trump is our president today is that we automated away 4 million manufacturing jobs that were primarily based in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Missouri and Iowa – the swing states he needed to win.
And what we did to those jobs we are now going to do to the retail jobs, the call center jobs, the fast food jobs and eventually the truck-driving jobs. We have to have a new way forward that works for all Americans independent of your political affiliation. These problems are technological and apply to us all….
And the Democratic Party, unfortunately, is acting like Donald Trump is the cause of all of our problems. He’s a symptom and we need to cure the underlying disease.
Democrats have still not asked themselves the hard questions about why Donald Trump won in 2016. Where, if you look around the country you see 30 percent of stores and malls closing, you see record-high levels of stress and financial insecurity, student loan debt, even suicides and drug overdoses — these are the problems that voters talk to me about when I’m out there every single day.”
Alas, Yang’s identification of his party’s failure will be to no effect because of this simple reason: the Democratic Party had long abandoned the American worker.
What neither Yang nor any of the other Democrat candidates would admit is that contrary to its traditional image and continuing pretense to be the party of the American worker, the Democratic Party actually had become the party of not just the rich, but the super-rich, and of the globalists. In contrast to the stereotype of the Republican Party being the party of the rich, the GOP is now the party of the middle class and the working poor.
Years before Donald Trump and the 2016 election, the transformation of the two parties was already underway. Over the course of Barack Obama’s two terms as president, the American middle class shifted their allegiance to the Republican Party, while the Democrats became the party of the globalist upper class and of the non-working welfare-dependent lower class, neither of whom are “America First” nationalists or patriots.
The Left in the U.K. are just like the Left in the United States.
On December 12, 2019, U.K. voters delivered a devastating defeat to the globalist Labour Party by voting for PM Boris Johnson’s pro-Brexit Conservative Party. Voters gave Johnson the largest Tory margin since the days of Margaret Thatcher. (The Economist)
And this is how the UK Left reacted to their resounding defeat, with riots, denial, and screaming.
And like the American Left, the contemptuous, elitist U.K. Left also dismiss their opponents, many of them are working class, by calling them stupid, uneducated, ignorant, racist and misogynist.
