Congressman Eric Swalwell (D-CA) threatens to nuke gun-confiscation resisters

Rep. Eric Swalwell, 38, is a California Demonrat who represents east Alameda County in the San Francisco Bay Area.

In a May 3, 2018 USA Today op/ed entitled, “Ban assault weapons, buy them back, go after resisters,” Swalwell said he and other Democrats had been too deferential to Second Amendment activists and should follow the lead of teenage “survivors” of the Parkland school shooting who have been more strident.

Swalwell proposed outlawing and confiscating all “military-style semiautomatic assault weapons”. Existing owners of semiautomatic rfiles would be forced to sell their weapons or face prosecution because merely banning assault weapons would still “leave millions of assault weapons in our communities for decades to come.”

Townhall‘s Katie Pavlich points out that “assault rifle” is a politically loaded, misleading term used by the Left to demonize semi-automatic rifles, and that what Swalwell wants to confiscate is “In other words, every rifle in America.”

Responding to Swalwell’s gun ban and confiscation proposal, former InfoWars reporter Joe Biggs @Rambobiggs tweeted:

So basically @RepSwalwell wants a war. Because that’s what you would get. You’re outta your fucking mind if you think I’ll give up my rights and give the gov all the power.

To which Swalwell tweeted this threat:

And it would be a short war my friend. The government has nukes. Too many of them. But they’re legit. I’m sure if we talked we could find common ground to protect our families and communities.

Biggs tweeted back:

So our government would nuke its own country in order to take guns? Wow

So did others:

@KGamecock: “‘We can nuke you but hey, let’s find common ground’ – A sitting US Representative. That’s almost as laughable as your wikipedia photo. Stay in California Eric.”

@Elm 335: “You really just threatened to use nukes on our citizens and can’t understand why we don’t trust the government enough to give up our 2nd amendment rights?!”

Like other Demonrats who’ve issued threats, when confronted Swalwell calls his threat mere sarcasm:

it’s sarcasm. He said he’s going to war with America if gun legislation was passed. I told him his government has nukes. God forbid we use sarcasm

He then portrays himself as the innocent victim:

America’s gun debate in one thread.

1) I propose a buy-back of assault weapons

2) Gun owner says he’ll go to war with USA if that happens

3) I sarcastically point out USA isn’t losing to his assault weapon (it’s not the 18th Century)

4) I’m called a tyrant

Swalwell also calls Biggs and other pro-Second Amendment Americans “gun trolls” whom he’s bravely taken on “to protect kids from being slaughtered in class”.

Elected to the House of Representatives in November 2012, Swalwell is a strong supporter of abortion and LGBTs. He has been mentioned as a potential 2020 presidential candidate and has publicly expressed an interest in running.

Eric Swalwell is precisely the sort of politicians about whom Thomas Jefferson had warned.

UN: abortion & euthanasia should be universal human rights; one world government in 12 years

Inés San Martin reports for Crux, Nov. 15, 2018, that the United Nations Human Rights Committee wants to make abortion and “assisted suicide” — a euphemism for euthanasia — a univeral human right.

A “General Comment” is a UN agency’s interpretation of the provisions of the treaties to which it is a party.

According to a draft “General Comment” of the UN Human Rights Committee’s International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, UN member governments:

  • Must decriminalize abortion for women and abortionists.
  • Must guarantee “safe, legal and effective” access to abortion when the life of the pregnant woman is at risk, or when carrying the pregnancy to term could cause her “pain or suffering” as in the cases of rape or incest.
  • Must remove barriers that deny access to a safe abortion, “including barriers caused as a result of the exercise of conscientious objection by individual medical providers.” In other words, medical providers must be forced to perform abortion, regardless of their religious or moral objection.
  • Guarantee girls’ and women’s access to post-abortion health care “in all circumstances, and on a confidential basis.”
  • Guarantee access by “boys and girls” to a wide range of affordable contraceptive methods.
  • Allow medical professionals to “facilitate the termination of life of afflicted adults, such as those who are terminally ill, who experience severe physical or mental pain and suffering and who wish to die with dignity.”

An earlier version of the draft was read in July 2017, during the 120th session of the Human Rights Committee and made available online by the UN. “All interested stakeholders” were invited to comment on the draft. Although many pro-life groups submitted comments, their views are disregarded as the current version of the draft, as of October 31, shows that the language calling for governments to guarantee access to abortion and “assisted suicide” remains.

Meanwhhile, writing for American Thinker, Oct. 27, 2018, E. Jeffrey Ludwig reminds us that in 2015, the UN issued a program for world government, entitled Transforming Our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The 14,883-words document has 91 numbered sections addressing issues under the five headings of People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace, and Partnership; and contains 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to improve life on the planet.

The earlier UN ideas and ideals of rights, freedom, equality, and justice are now subsumed under “sustainability”. The UN World Commission on Environment and Development defines “sustainable development” as:

  • Development “that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs” — whatever that means.
  • “Environmentalism” — preventing the depletion of scarce planetary resources.
  • The Marxist axiom that society should be organized around the idea of “from each according to his ability to each according to his needs.”

Ludwig warns:

The entire “Transforming Our World” document is cast in a stream of consciousness of pious platitudes for a utopian future. It is an outsize utopian dream. Five of the 17 items pertain to the environment.  There are goals for the cities, for women, for the poor, and even for life under the water. Absolutely no sphere of human activity is exempt from control by the UN….

The one-worlders of the 1950s and early 1960s are now in the UN driver’s seat, and they have made their move. The overlay of Marxist talk about “meeting needs” has moved to center stage. The UN has assigned itself a time frame for moving forward in its plan for planetary hegemony.

This projected transformation detailing (yet without details) a new world order of environmental responsibility and a significant reduction of poverty and hunger never speaks to the practical dimension of vast manipulations of people by cynical leaders and ignorant bureaucrats who hold their positions through terrorism and bribery. They never discuss incompetence and corruption, twin brothers in the family of venality. The document portrays a sincere world where all those in power want to help humanity despite the daily evidence of the selfishness, corruption, murderous intents, devilish manipulations, thefts, personal immoralities, hatreds, and utter depravity of many governmental leaders in every country in the world, and among the leaders of business as well. Is not the Agenda for Sustainable Development itself one of those devilish manipulations?

The sustainability ideal is not wedded to a Christian worldview; instead, individual liberty is submerged in a scientifically determined collectivist mindset with final decisions in the hands of the devilish, all-knowing Big Brothers. The relevance of the individual is downplayed. It is being put forward by a UN that is no longer pro-western, a much larger body than existed in 1945. Will you accept it, or is it time, more than ever before, to begin rethinking our membership in that unsustainable body?

Deception: NGO coaches migrants how to pretend to be Christian refugees to gain political asylum

The European Asylum Support Office (EASO) is an European Union agency created in 2010 to improve protection for asylum seekers and to coordinate EU Member States on political asylum. The agency has a process to identify real refugees among the hordes trying to legally migrate to Europe.

Ariel Ricker is the founder and executive director of Advocates Abroad (AA), an NGO (non-governmental organization) founded in Febrary 2016 in Northern Greece. AA’s 380 advocates provide legal aid to refugees and migrants seeking political asylum in Europe, as well as prepare them for their asylum interviews. Recently, University of Cambridge students and 12 British MPs helped raise more than $60,000 for AA.

Lauren Southern is a remarkable 23-year-old Canadian woman and political activist who is the founder of the “Borderless” documentary project on the European migrant/refugee crisis.

George, a producer of “Borderless,” went undercover and took a video of Ricker describing how she and other “refugee advocates” coach migrants on how to pretend to be Christian refugees. Ricker reveals that her organisation, Advocates Abroad, has studied transcripts of asylum interviews so as to generate stock answers to key interview questions for asylum seekers to use. Advocates Abroad teaches applicants to simulate emotions like crying, in order to appear sympathetic, and to display certain refugee characteristics asylum officers are trained to look for, including how to pray as a Christian.

In the undercover video, beginning at around the 2:26 mark, Ricker describes how migrants are coached to fool EU asylum officers into thinking they are genuine refugees:

Ricker: “So we teach them how to, like, literally [feigns being emotionally overwraught; deep sigh], sometimes as simple as this, and then how to tell their story, how to frame it, how to literally explain it, and how to keep their private emotions and their private trauma private, because all this acting is a shield.”

George: “Do you have to coach people on, like, physicality?”

Ricker: “Yeah, I see it like, um, I tell them that this is, um, acting, all of this is acting, it’s all acting, as though this is theater. So, for them to get through, they must act their part in the theater, and that [their part] is the refugee in trauma, because these EASO (European Asylum Support Office) officers are so fucking stupid, all they know is what’s written on the paper EASO says this is refugee in trauma, they have these characteristics. So we coach people how to have these characteristics.”

Beg. at 3:44 mark:

Rickers: “There’s a formula we came up with, which is ironic because I suck at formulas. But it’s [the formula] like significant event, date, and location . . . answer all the questions the same way. [As an example, the migrant should say] in December 2017, in Izmir, Turkey, I was threatened for being a Christian because my boss and his friends jumped me when I was leaving my church. This is the Bible they tried to tear up. This is the crucifix I was wearing that they tried to tear, and it made me feel unsafe as a Christian in Turkey. Baboom. And that way you’ve had the event, the date and the location. So you’ve given them a very specific answer, and you’ve kept it in a tight, short answer as well, rather than rambling about . . . and it’s much harder to refute because you have all the elements in there. So like our narrative timeline format, like, has a fill-in-the-blanks section at this point, and then we have, like, two examples for home country being significant danger in that location, and then ditto for Turkey. So consistency is the most important thing, even if you find yourself in a position where you have to lie, because you suddenly remembered something else. It’s best just to stick with what you said.”

Beg. at 5:40 mark:

Ricker: “They put in the decision whether or not you were acting with emotion, so you have to be, like [feigns sighing and crying], or crying, or stopping, or throwing up, or asking for a break. So it’s, um, it’s becoming an actor.”

Man: “You have to tell people to ask to take a break?”

Ricker: “Oh, we do. We actually do role play. So we prepare them a folder. So, like, the first roleplaying activity we do is, like, us being them, and they’re the officer, and then we flip around after they’ve had some practice, to see how should I walk into the office, how should I introduce myself, how should I give them the folder, and then how do I sit down, and then when do I stand up, when do I show them how to pray.”

Man: “Why would you need to show them how you pray?”

Ricker: “Because it’s a good way to show honesty. This is done in other places too, like, uh, not good places, to see if you’re truly what you say you are. If you can’t show how you pray….”

Man: “If you’re actually a Christian?”

Ricker: “Mmm.”

Man: “Oh, so if you’re saying that you’re fleeing persecution….”

Ricker: “Then you should probably know how to be, you know, praying that way. They also ask, like, what’s your favorite holiday? So, like, some people just say, like, Christmas. But, like, we explain you can’t just say this because this is not a sufficient answer. You have to say, uh, and you have to say this a certain way, which is, like, December 25th, which is Christmas, which is the birthday of our Lord and Savior.

Lauren Southern says that some of the “migrants” whom Advocates Abroad is teaching how to pretend to be “refugees” are wealthy Muslims who are not being persecuted, as well as criminals and ISIS terrorists.

Watch the video on Bitchute.

According to Borderless:

In an official statement, UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) said it was ‘alarmed by these reports’ while the Sturm College of Law, a University of Denver school listed as a partner on the Advocates Abroad website, responded to say it was ‘shocked and repulsed’ by the comments made by Ms. Ricker and that the university has no official affiliation with the organisation and its students will not continue to work with Advocates Abroad.

Fellowship of the Minds under attack

Late yesterday afternoon, I published the post, “Parkland anomalies: David Hogg was at home during school shooting; interviewed girl before shooting,” then closed down my computer.

I awoke this morning to find a series of 16 successive emails from Jetpack Support, about FOTM doing down and then up throughout the night. Jetpack Support says it’s a connectivity problem.

Although FOTM now uses a non-U.S. host server, after our previous server WordPress burned down our blog on August 15, 2018, we still use WordPress’ Jetpack software because our readers and writers are familiar with the format and all the “bells-and-whistles” features.

I called our host server, and as we were talking on the phone, FOTM came back on. Minutes later, FOTM went down again: All you see is a blank page. I asked the server’s customer support if FOTM is under attack. He refuses to say, but said they’re “monitoring” FOTM and will call back.

He called back and informed me that the reason FOTM keeps going down is because we’re getting “a lot of hits with different IP addresses” — as many as 703,000 IP addresses — which led to periodic “system overload”. He promised that this now has the attention of the server’s “higher-ups” and that they’ll increase FOTM‘s “processing” to handle the extraordinary number of “hits”.

From Wikipedia:

A denial-of-service attack (DoS attack) is a cyber-attack in which the perpetrator seeks to make a machine or network resource unavailable to its intended users by temporarily or indefinitely disrupting services of a host connected to the Internet. Denial of service is typically accomplished by flooding the targeted machine or resource with superfluous requests in an attempt to overload systems and prevent some or all legitimate requests from being fulfilled.

In a distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS attack), the incoming traffic flooding the victim originates from many different sources. This effectively makes it impossible to stop the attack simply by blocking a single source.

A DoS or DDoS attack is analogous to a group of people crowding the entry door of a shop, making it hard for legitimate customers to enter, disrupting trade.

Clearly, Fellowship of the Minds is under malicious attack by “bots” pretending to be different IP addresses. The timing of the attacks suggests the attacks are due to the “Parkland anomalies” post. TPTB do not want you to read the post. But I’ve archived the post here, and reproduced it on Blogger. James Fetzer has also reproduced the post on his blog.

Please say a prayer for FOTM.

Parkland anomalies: David Hogg was at home during school shooting; interviewed girl before shooting

If one part of an event is a lie, the whole event is contrived.

According to the timeline of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting on Wednesday, February 14, 2018, in Parkland, Florida:

  • 2:19 p.m.: An Uber driver dropped off Nikolas Cruz, 19, at the high school.
  • 2:21 p.m.: Cruz entered Building 12, armed with an AR-15 style semi-automatic rifle and several magazines. He activated a fire alarm and began shooting indiscriminately at students and teachers, killing 17 and wounding another 17. The shooting lasted 6 minutes.
  • 2:28 p.m.: Cruz got out and ran in the direction of tennis courts before going south, according to the sheriff’s office. At 2:29 p.m., he crossed a field and ran west, blending in with fleeing students. He walked to a Walmart, where he purchased a soda, then to a McDonald’s, from which he departed on foot at 3:01 p.m.
  • At about 3:40 p.m., Cruz was stopped by police 2 miles from the school and arrested without incident.

In a CBS interview with David Hogg, the reporter made clear Hogg was in the school when the shooting began. He hid in a closet, from which he reported live on the shooting, as well as interviewed other students.

Below is a screenshot of the CBS News video. Note the words at the bottom of the screen: “STUDENT INTERVIEWED CLASSMATES AS SHOTS RANG OUT”.

The video begins with the reporter saying this about Hogg:

He was in school when the shooting started. His father is a photog, FBI agent, so he [David Hogg] recognized immediately this was a gun, this wasn’t a cracker, this wasn’t a drill. His teacher ushered him into a closet as the shooting was taking place. He thought to himself, if he and his classmates die in this closet, what would their story be, what would we know about them? Here’s what he did.”

What follows, beginning at the 0:26 mark, is a dark screen and Hogg’s voice, presumably reporting from inside the closet. He whispers:

“It’s…Douglas School. There’s an active shooter; it’s not a drill…. It’s 2:52 (p.m.). I hear a gun, I hear a gun shot. We thought it’s a drill, but the super does not.”

Then a girl’s face appears in the dark:

Hogg’s voice asks: “So what’s your message?”

The girl answers:

“Um, I really don’t think there’s anything new to say, but there shouldn’t have to be because if you looked around this closet and saw everyone just hiding together you would know that this shouldn’t be happening anymore, and that it doesn’t deserve to happen anymore.”

The video then cuts away from the girl, still talking, to the CBS reporter resuming his interview with David Hogg.

Who was the girl? And what more did she say?

The video below is the rest of the story that CBS did not air.

The video begins with Hogg asking the girl, “So what’s your message?”, and the girl’s answer:

“Um, I really don’t think there’s anything new to say, but there shouldn’t have to be because if you looked around this closet and saw everyone just hiding together you would know that this shouldn’t be happening anymore, and that it doesn’t deserve to happen anymore. Uhm, and that’s that.”

At the 0:45 mark, Hogg identifies the girl as Alex Vieux. He says:

“This is Alex Vieux. This recording was taken at 9:32, February 14, 2018. Alex, are you okay with me recording this?”

Vieux replies:

“Yes, I am okay with you recording this. I personally have rallied for gun rights and less control, not necessarily less control, but this experience has definitely changed my viewpoint. I wanted to be an NRA member. I wanted to learn how to hunt. I was always fascinated by guns as a young girl. But this experience was so traumatizing to me to the point where now I can’t even fathom the idea of a gun in my house or on my body. I did have plans to go to Nexus gun range to learn how to shoot, but at this point I don’t want to even be behind a gun. I don’t want to be the person behind a bullet because I don’t want to be the person to point a bullet at someone. And to have the bullet pointed at me, my school, my classmates, my teachers, my mentors, it’s just, it’s definitely eye opening to the fact that we need more gun control in our country, because for this to happen, and for people to be so neutralized to it. I even texted my sisters, ‘Shooting at my school. I am safe.’ They both responded with, ‘Omg, lol, you’re funny.’ And that’s a problem in society and a bigger problem in America, and it needs to be fixed and I believe the most definite way to fix it is by changing our laws when it comes to gun ownership.”

Recall that when Hogg, hiding in the closet, began reporting live on the shooting, he said “It’s 2:52.” But according to the timeline of the shooting, it was over by 2:28 p.m.

Then, right after Hogg said “It’s 2:52,” he interviewed Alex Vieux and said: “This interview was taken at 9:32, February 14, 2018.”

How did Hogg go from being in the closet at 2:52 p.m. to interviewing Alex Vieux at 9:32 p.m. — all while the shooting was going on? That makes no sense. Why would Hogg and Vieux still be hiding in the closet at 9:32 p.m., long after the shooting had ended and the shooter arrested?

Or was it actually 9:32 a.m. on February 14, 2018, which would be nearly 5 hours before Nikolaus Cruz started shooting?

That makes no sense either. Why would Hogg interview Vieux in a closet about a shooting that hadn’t yet occurred?

As Harold Saive points out:

“When you listen to the dialog it’s clear the interview is said to be held while ‘hiding in this closet’…. No case can be made that the interviews were recorded at 9:32 at night since the students were not still hiding from the shooter 7 hours after the last shot was fired. All students had been evacuated, the scene locked-down and the shooter had long been in custody by 9:32 PM.”

The only way that one can make sense of the two discrepancies — (1) Hogg reporting on a live shooting at 2:52 p.m., 24 minutes after the shooting had stopped; and (2) Hogg interviewing Vieux at 9:32 p.m. — is that Hogg’s dramatic video footage in the closet actually took place on the morning of February 14, hours before Cruz allegedly entered Building 12 and shot 17 people dead.

As a matter of fact, there was a fire drill earlier that day in M.S. Douglas High School!

According to NBC News on February 14, 2018:

Jim Gard has been a math teacher for 36 years….

Gard’s math class at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, was just finishing up a review for a test Wednesday when “the fire alarm went off, which I thought was unusual because we’d just had a fire drill.

It wasn’t another fire drill, or even a fire. It was far, far worse. Authorities said Nikolas Cruz, a 19-year-old man who’d recently been expelled from the school, had returned to campus and opened fire with an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle.

Not only was David Hogg not reporting live from the closet during the shooting, he wasn’t even in school at the time. This is his own testimony in a TV interview:

On the day of the shooting, I got my camera and got on my bike and ride as fast as I could three miles from my house to the school, to get as much video and get as many interviews as I could, ’cause I knew this could not be another mass shooting.”

The above video is a segment from the CBS News documentary, “39 Days“.

Hogg’s testimony that he was at home at the time of the shooting also raises this question: “Why was he at home on a school day?”

Maybe the answer is that David Hogg wasn’t/isn’t a student at M. S. Douglas High School.

What about Hogg’s interviewee, Alex Vieux?

Dr. James Tracy writes in his Memory Hole Blog post that when Hogg’s hiding-in-the-closet interview of Alex Vieux was aired later that day of the shooting, Vieux inexplicably became Isabelle Robinson:

This footage then oddly aired after the “live” Parkland incident that afternoon. To make matters more confusing, the individual goes by “Alex Vieux” in the morning, and “Isabelle Robinson” hours later as the same footage is widely broadcast in the aftermath of the event….

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel used a small part of the “Alex Vieux” interview footage in a February 15, 2018 video report (brief excerpt at 4:07 below), referring to the interview subject as “Isabelle Robinson.”

This is what Isabelle Robinson/Alex Vieux look like:

But wait!

There is another Isabelle Robinson, the daughter of a 9/11 survivor Jennifer Rothschild Robinson.

A heart-wrenching story, published in News.com.au on August 21, 2016, describes Australian photographer Nathan Edwards’ 15-year search for the woman and baby whose photograph he found in the rubble of the collapsed World Trade Center.

Jennifer Rothschild Robinson’s office at Ohrenstein & Brown was on the 86th floor of the North Tower. Luckily, she didn’t go to work that fateful day, September 11, 2001.

15 years later, photographer Nathan Edwards finally met the woman and baby in the photo. The baby, now 16, is named Isabelle Robinson. Below is a picture of Edwards’ happy reunion with Jennifer and her family in their home in Florida.

Doesn’t Isabelle Robinson, 16, look familiar?

Here’s a picture of Jennifer and Isabelle Robinson:

Let’s compare Isabelle Robinson/Alex Vieux with Isabelle Robinson, daughter of 9/11 survivor Jennifer Rothschild Robinson. If they’re the same person, Parkland Isabelle would be a 2-year older version of 9/11 Isabelle.

They sure look like the same person to me!

According to TruthFinder, Jennifer R. Robinson, 52, lives in Parkland, Florida. Her family members include husband Paul Robinson, 51; William Oliver Rothschild, 90; Elaine H. Rothschild, 86; William Edward Rothschild, 84; Ralph F. Rothschild, 74; and Andrew Bruce Rothschild, 55 — all of Parkland, Florida.

What a coinkidink! — A baby who survived 9/11 grew up to be a student who survived the school shooting in Parkland, Florida!

A big h/t to Tony Mead.

President Trump bars those entering U.S. illegally from seeking asylum

The New York Times reports that yesterday, invoking national security powers to protect the United States against threats from abroad, the Trump administration announced new immigration rules giving the President new authority to deny asylum to “migrants” who illegally cross the border.

Breitbart reports that the new policy covers the “migrants” in the three caravans that are moving northwards, and all other migrants who cross the border illegally.

Officials indicated that President Trump will issue a proclamation today, and that the new rules will overhaul longstanding asylum laws. Once Trump makes a proclamation identifying who is barred, the new rule would be immediately applied. Officials said “migrants” could apply for two other smaller programs that are much less likely to allow them to stay.

The denial of political asylum to those entering the U.S. illegally is sure to be challenged in court. Omar Jadwat, the director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Immigrants’ Rights Project, said:

“The law is clear: people can apply for asylum whether or not they’re at a port of entry, and regardless of their immigration status. The president doesn’t get to ignore that law, even if he dislikes it.”

This is what the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) website says about asylum and refugee status:

Refugee status or asylum may be granted to people who have been persecuted or fear they will be persecuted on account of race, religion, nationality, and/or membership in a particular social group or political opinion.

Refugees

Refugee status is a form of protection that may be granted to people who meet the definition of refugee and who are of special humanitarian concern to the United States. Refugees are generally people outside of their country who are unable or unwilling to return home because they fear serious harm. For a legal definition of refugee, see section 101(a)(42) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).

You may seek a referral for refugee status only from outside of the United States. For more information about refugees, see the Refugees section.

Asylum

Asylum status is a form of protection available to people who:

  • Meet the definition of refugee
  • Are already in the United States
  • Are seeking admission at a port of entry

USCIS’s webpage on “Asylum” says:

Every year people come to the United States seeking protection because they have suffered persecution or fear that they will suffer persecution due to:

  • Race
  • Religion
  • Nationality
  • Membership in a particular social group
  • Political opinion

If you are eligible for asylum you may be permitted to remain in the United States. To apply for Asylum, file a Form I-589, Application for Asylum and for Withholding of Removal, within one year of your arrival to the United States. There is no fee to apply for asylum.

You may include your spouse and children who are in the United States on your application at the time you file or at any time until a final decision is made on your case. To include your child on your application, the child must be under 21 and unmarried. For more information see our Form I-589, Application for Asylum and for Withholding of Removal page.

What ACLU lawyer Jadwat does not address is that President Trump is invoking national security as the justification for barring illegal border-crossers from seeking political asylum.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen M. Nielsen and Acting Attorney General Matthew G. Whitaker said in a statement yesterday:

Consistent with our immigration laws, the President has the broad authority to suspend or restrict the entry of aliens into the United States if he determines it to be in the national interest to do so. Today’s rule applies this important principle to aliens who violate such a suspension or restriction regarding the southern border imposed by the President by invoking an express authority provided by Congress to restrict eligibility for asylum. Our asylum system is overwhelmed with too many meritless asylum claims from aliens who place a tremendous burden on our resources, preventing us from being able to expeditiously grant asylum to those who truly deserve it.

Today, we are using the authority granted to us by Congress to bar aliens who violate a Presidential suspension of entry or other restriction from asylum eligibility.

According to new Department of Homeland Security (DHS) data, less than 10% of the migrants arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border from Central America have legitimate asylum claims. (Breitbart)

The thousands of “caravan migrants” relentlessly marching/bussing/trucking to America’s southern border have proven themselves to be violent and determined to crash national borders. The “caravan migrants” are invaders and a clear and present threat to U.S. national security. See:

Picture Perfect Gunman – To Disarm America

And so the next gun grab begins

For a long time the Left kept coming up with non-starters in their attempt to prove the danger posed by white ex-soldiers coming back into the country. Now they have their poster child.

And yet, nobody stops to ask how this would have turned out if the patrons of the country music club were armed and trained.

Any guesses how long before the truth leaks out, and we know what really happened? To me, this wreaks of false flag and street theater. There is even a report that some patrons were survivors of the Las Vegas shooting.

NY demorats push for social media review as part of firearm background check

From New York City Patch: Two Brooklyn politicians want cops to examine New Yorkers’ online activity to prevent more hate-fueled tragedies like the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre. State Sen. Kevin Parker and Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams proposed legislation Friday that would incorporate social media accounts into background checks for gun buyers.

They argue doing so would help law enforcement authorities spot dangerous people like Robert Bowers, who reportedly declared his hatred for Jewish people online before allegedly killing 11 people last Saturday.

“You would have thought this person was a model citizen until you examined his social media profile,” said Adams, a Democrat. “And you would have noticed he was not a model citizen, he was a broken citizen that was a time bomb that was waiting to explode.”

The pair of bills would empower the New York State Police and local departments like the NYPD to check three years of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat activity for anyone applying for a gun license in New York, Parker said.

Authorities would flag anything that is an “immediate threat to public safety,” he said. Gun buyers would also have to let police comb through a year’s worth of their search engine histories under the legislation.

The state’s SAFE Act — known as one of the nation’s toughest gun laws — requires instant federal background checks for all gun sales except those between immediate family members. But lawmakers have to do more in the wake of recent hate crimes such as the Pittsburgh shooting, Parker said.

“We certainly want to make sure that we’re adding to the protections that we need to make sure that people that we’re putting handguns and rifles and shotguns in the possession, that they in fact are the people that are using them in the right way,” Parker said.

The syngagogue massacre, in which 11 people died, came just a day after federal authorities arrested Cesar Sayoc, the Florida man accused of mailing bombs to high-profile Democratic figures. Sayoc had searched for his targets’ addresses online, federal prosecutors allege.

Lawmakers are still working out exactly how law-enforcement officials would go about accessing social media profiles that are not publicly viewable, Parker said, though he noted the legislation would require gun buyers to make their profiles available.

“We’re going look at what’s in the universe already and use that as one of the tools to determine the profile of a person who’s attempting to purchase a handgun,” Adams said.

The legislation also would not cover more obscure social media sites such as Gab, on which Bowers reportedly signaled that he was going to carry out violence. But Parker said officials wanted to go after the “low-hanging fruit.”

“How much is it going to cost in human lives if we don’t start checking people’s social media and trying to get a good sense of their understanding?” Parker said.

Facebook took down FOTM just in time for Nov. 6 mid-term election

What I had expected finally happened.

As of last night when I got offline and closed my laptop, Fellowship of the Minds‘ Facebook page was still up.

Ten minutes ago, I discovered that, like rats and cockroaches that come out cloaked in the darkness of night, the Demonrats of Facebook took down FOTM.

This is the message when I tried to access our page:

Recall that in the darkness of the early morning hours of August 15, 2018, our former hosting server WordPress burned down FOTM.

It took us eight days before we restored FOTM with a non-U.S. hosting server. See:

When WordPress took us down, I had asked our readers to send me their email addresses so that we could maintain contact before the restoration of FOTM. I compiled a list of hundreds of email addresses, many of which are those of our Facebook readers.

I expect Twitter will censor by banning FOTM as well.

So if you are a (former) Facebook reader or Twitter reader  of FOTM, please bookmark FOTM or subscribe to FOTM and leave Facebook and Twitter. Surely, you don’t really want to associate with a corporation that censors our U.S. Constitution First Amendment right to freedom of speech.

To subscribe for email notifications of new posts, just scroll down our page until you see “SUBSCRIBE TO BLOG VIA EMAIL” on the right. Then type your email address in the box, and click “Subscribe”.

‘Seinfeld’ actress hyperventilates Trump America is going Nazi, but ignores the Left’s 640 acts of violence & harassment

Actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus, 57, is best known for playing Elaine Benes in the “Seinfeld” TV sitcom.

Last weekend, Louis-Dreyfus starred in an apocalypic ad for the ‘Multiply Your Vote’ campaign, warning that the United States is heading toward a future like Nazi Germany unless President Trump’s power is restrained. She said:

“Donald Trump, you are the president of all citizens of this country, you should not inflame the hatred of some at the violent expense of others. We’ve seen Jews subjected to persecution, prejudice, and mass murder for thousands of years. We were all horrified by the horrific slaughter of 11 Jewish congregants at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. In memory of the 11 people who lost their lives at their place of worship we call on the President to unequivocally denounced fascism, neo-Nazism, and white nationalism. On November 6th, vote for unity, vote for decency, vote.”

The video also features two Holocaust survivors. Marta Lightner said, “Last two years, since Trump is in charge, it’s getting by day, worse and worse and worse”; another Holocaust survivor Tova Rotlevy-Cohen ominously said “this administration opened a Pandora’s Box.”

The ad then to shows footage from the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville last year, where neo-Nazi marchers chanted: “Jews will not replace us!”

Are you still wondering about the oh-so convenient (cough, cough) timing of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting?

See “Pittsburgh synagogue shooting was preceded by an active shooter drill; shooting used to silence AltMedia” and “The curious case of Pittsburgh synagogue shooter Robert G. Bowers

Louis-Dreyfus followed the ad with a tweet on Sunday, accusing President Trump of “spreading fear, encouraging racism and inciting violence.” (Breitbart)

President Trump is a Nazi who’s “spreading fear, encouraging racism and inciting violence”?

Once again, the Left are engaging in psychological projection. As John Nolte of Breitbart points out, it’s the Left who have perpetrated acts of media-approved violence and harassment against Trump and his supporters, numbering 640 in all (I updated Nolte’s list with one on October 30, 2018).
