Pope Francis compares President Trump to homicidal tyrant King Herod, and anti-LGBT to Hitler

I thought the Catholic Church, like other religions, have tax-exempt status so long as the clergy refrain from politics and making political pronouncements.

Not only do some priests and deacons violate that rule, Pope Francis clearly exempts himself from that rule as well.

Not only has Jorge Bergoglio, his real name, made comments that are political in nature, he calls people who are critical of homosexuals “Hitler”. Pope Francis also compares President Trump to the homicidal tyrant King Herod who, in an attempt to kill baby Jesus, gave orders to kill all 2-year-old and younger male babies in Bethlehem and its vicinity (the Massacre of the Innocents in the New Testament). But Bergoglio doesn’t have the integrity or guts to actually name Trump, although it is obvious his target is Trump.

According to BreakingIsraelNews, La Civilta Cattolica reported on Dec. 6, 2019 that while visiting Thailand, in an oblique reference to President Trump’s policies on the southern border, Pope Francis compared the policy of building border walls and refugee detention centers to the acts of King Herod. The pope said: “In other parts, there are walls that even separate children from parents. Herod comes to mind. Yet for drugs, there’s no wall to keep them out.”

Earlier, on Nov. 15, 2019 at the 20th World Congress of the International Association of Criminal Law in Rome, Pope Francis called “goverment leaders” who oppose homosexuality Hitler-like.

Calvin Freiburger reports for LifeSiteNews that Pope Francis said (the Vatican has published the original Italian here):

“It is not coincidental that at times there is a resurgence of symbols typical of Nazism. And I must confess to you that when I hear a speech (by) someone responsible for order or for a government, I think of speeches by Hitler in 1934, 1936. With the persecution of Jews, gypsies, and people with homosexual tendencies, today these actions are typical (and) represent ‘par excellence’ a culture of waste and hate. That is what was done in those days and today it is happening again.”

Although the Pope made his remarks in his “typically ambiguous” way “without specifying any particular politicians, movements, or regions,” the news media understood those remarks as a broad criticism of politicians who oppose the homosexual agenda. As an example, Reuters ran the headline, “Pope compares politicians who rage against gays to Hitler,” and cites as an example Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, who told an interviewer he would rather have a dead son than a gay son.

LifeSiteNews‘ Freiburger points out that “While left-wing activists often compare conservatives and Christians to Nazis for their views on issues such as homosexuality, the Nazi regime in fact sought to supplant Christianity, and its persecution of homosexuals came from its views on Aryan population growth, not out of any Christian understanding of the nature of sex and sin.”

Freiburger also notes that “given the pope’s broader record on LGBT issues, his remarks may extend to world leaders who merely express disapproval of homosexuality and oppose the LGBT agenda.” Freiburger cites the following as pointing to Pope Francis’ partiality toward homosexuals:

  • He met with various LGBT individuals and pro-LGBT groups, including the notorious Jesuit priest James Martin, who has touted the meeting as an endorsement of his “ministering with LGBT Catholics.”
  • This summer, Pope Francis appointed Newark archbishop Cardinal Joseph Tobin, who has vocally dissented from Catholic teaching on homosexuality, to the Congregation for Catholic Education.
  • The pope has sent mixed messages on the permissibility of same-sex relationships. In an interview six months into his pontificate that began in 2013, he recommended that the Church pull back from her perceived emphasis on “abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptive methods,” saying it is “not necessary to talk about these issues all the time.”

ICE arrests Mexican national with pending manslaughter & gang assault charges; released despite active detainer

ICE press release dated 12/02/19:

“NEW YORK — U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) deportation officers arrested Feliciano Perez-Bautista, 32, on Tuesday, Nov. 26. Perez-Bautista, a twice removed Mexican national who has pending manslaughter and gang assault charges, was released from local law enforcement custody with an active detainer due to Westchester County’s Immigrant Protection Act.

“When law enforcement agencies decide to not honor ICE detainers and release violent criminals back onto the streets, they are putting their city at serious risk,” said ICE New York Field Office Director Thomas Decker.

“We want nothing more than to cooperate and work together with local law enforcement authorities in order to protect our communities and keep this nation secure. Unfortunately, more and more we are seeing politicians place their own political agenda above the safety of the citizens in which they serve. This leaves local law enforcement agencies handcuffed by these reckless policies which give them no choice but to release criminals, like this unlawfully present Mexican national charged with manslaughter, back onto the streets to further terrorize the community.”

On July 8, 2019, Perez-Bautista was arrested by the Yonkers Police Department (YPD) for the charge of gang assault 1st degree: cause serious physical injury. After the victim succumbed to his injuries, Perez-Bautista was additionally charged with manslaughter 1st: with intent to cause serious physical injury. On July 12, ERO deportation officers lodged a detainer with the YPD. On July 30, ERO deportation officers lodged a detainer with the Westchester Department of Corrections. Neither detainer was not honored, and Perez-Bautista was later released, without notification to ICE.

On Nov. 26, ERO deportation officers assigned to ERO-New York’s Newburgh Sub-Office arrested Perez-Bautista, who was previously removed by ICE in May 2013 and September 2014, in White Plains, New York. He is currently detained in ICE custody pending a removal to Mexico.”

Sanctuary King County: Man murdered in his sleep by illegal alien with previous felony

The price that Americans pay for living in demorat-run cities with sanctuary policies can be their life.

The family of a 56-year-old Seattle man found out the hard way that liberal policies kill loved ones.

According to MyNorthwest.com, the dead victim (identified as Sam Lam who was a legal imigrant) was apparently not the intended target of the illegal alien. The victim was shot while he slept in his bed.

The illegal alien, 25-year-old Julio Cruz-Velasquez, came to America as a child in 2000. He was ordered deported with a group of illegal aliens and they returned to Mexico. The illegal alien came back to America to no doubt “better his life.”

That included garnering a record of felony assault, reckless driving and vehicle prowling, according to KOMO News.

Bryan Wilcox, deputy acting field director for ICE’s Seattle office, told MyNorthwest.com that the illegal alien should have been in the custody of federal law enforcement long ago.

But criminal illegal aliens, unlike American citizens, receive a get-out-of-jail free card in sanctuary cities, counties and states.

Wilcox said, “Had [King] County called us and told us that they were getting ready to release this guy (from his previous convictions), we would have gone to the jail and picked him up, taken him into ICE custody,” Wilcox said. He added, “Had King County honored our detainer and just [given] us notification, made a phone call … he would not have been on the streets to commit this horrific crime.”

Finally: Montgomery County, MD reverses some anti-ICE policies after women sexually attacked by illegal aliens

County Executive Marc Elrich

Well, it only took nine arrests of illegal aliens for the County Executive, Marc Elrich, to finally decide he needs to protect the women living in his community.

Sorry Marc but it’s too little, too late for the past sexual assault victims. I hope they sue the county.

From Fox News: A controversial sanctuary policy barring Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents from accessing Montgomery County jails in Maryland has been partially rolled back following the arrests of several illegal aliens all charged with rape or sexual abuse in a new bid that will force cooperation between county law enforcement and federal immigration authorities.

Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich reversed portions of “the Promoting Community Trust Executive Order,” which he just signed in July, and will now allow ICE agents access to certain areas of the county jail in order to apprehend illegal aliens, according to reports by ABC7 News.

A county spokesperson confirmed to the local news outlet on Nov. 1 that correctional officers have been ordered to give ICE agents clearance to “identified areas” of the jail to “ensure that transfers are conducted in a safe environment.”

The move walks back an executive order which barred county police from asking individuals about their immigration status and largely prohibited local law enforcement from cooperating with ICE agents, as Elrich reasserted the blue region’s stance as a sanctuary city that strongly opposes the Trump administration’s hardline policies against illegal immigrants. The policy also banned ICE agents from entering any non-public county facilities.

Only a month after Elrich signed the order, at least nine illegal immigrants were charged with rape and sexual assault between August and September, causing the county executive’s office to reevaluate the policy and concede that it had received “numerous phone calls, as well as emails” in light of the arrests.

Ideology over child safety: ICE captures illegal alien released by Buncombe County despite conviction for child sex offense

Buncombe County Sheriff Miller

The sheriff of Buncombe County, Quentin Miller (democrat), has six children and nine grandchildren. Wonder how the good sheriff would have felt had this illegal alien committed indecent liberties against one of HIS children.

From ICE press release:

“10/30/2019; ASHEVILLE, N.C. – U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested unlawfully present Salvadoran national Marvin Ramirez Torres Wednesday afternoon during a targeted enforcement action in downtown Asheville, one day after the Buncombe County Sheriff’s Office refused to honor an ICE detainer, and instead released Mr. Ramirez Torres from local criminal custody following his conviction for indecent liberties against a child.

By releasing an illegal alien with a serious sex offense against a child, Buncombe County chose to release a serious public safety threat into the Asheville community where he was free to potentially harm others until his capture by ICE.

This is yet another example of a clear public safety threat being released into North Carolina communities rather than into ICE custody due to local sheriff policies on ICE non-cooperation,” said Acting ICE Director Matt Albence. “Continued decisions to refuse cooperation with ICE serve as an open invitation to aliens who commit criminal offenses that these counties are a safe haven for persons seeking to evade federal authorities, and residents of Buncombe County are less safe due to these misguided sanctuary policies.”

“It is my sincere desire to work with local partners to whatever extent they are willing to work with this agency in what should be our shared goal to ensure community safety,” said ICE Atlanta Interim Field Office Director John Tsoukaris. “Elected law enforcement officials who chose to ignore the ICE detainer, and the ICE warrant of arrest that accompanied the detainer, are placing politics above public safety and failing their most basic duty to protect their communities. Uncooperative jurisdictions such as Buncombe County should be on notice that as long as criminal offenders are being released, they should get used to seeing a lot more ICE at-large enforcement activity in their communities.”

Mr. Ramirez Torres was initially arrested in April 2017 in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, on an outstanding warrant for felony indecent liberties with a child. ICE lodged an immigration detainer against him with Buncombe County in May 2017. Along with the detainer form, ICE provided Buncombe County with an administrative arrest warrant.

Under the Immigration and Nationality Act as passed by Congress, ICE detainers, removal orders issued by federal immigration judges, and ICE immigration enforcement in general, is conducted under civil law The “judicial warrant” demanded by the sheriff only applies to criminal cases and does not exist for civil law matters.

However, for every detainer ICE issues the agency also provides an accompanying administrative warrant, or a warrant of removal along with the detainer, which is the warrant that does exist for matters governed under civil law. The Buncombe County sheriff’s claim that ICE did not provide a warrant is false.

Mr. Ramirez Torres was convicted of felony indecent liberties with a child in North Carolina Superior Court for Buncombe County on October 29, 2019, and ordered to register as a sex offender. He was sentenced to time served and set for release. The Buncombe County Sheriff’s Office then refused to honor the ICE detainer and instead released him back into the community.

ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) deportation officers along with special agents from Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) were able to locate and arrest Ramirez Torres outside the Buncombe County Courthouse at approximately 3:30 p.m. October 30 when he arrived to register as a sex offender.

This arrest is simply the latest in a continuing list of unlawfully present foreign nationals released from local custody in North Carolina this year despite serious criminal charges that pose a clear threat to public safety. Across North Carolina, local authorities refused to honor more than 500 detainers for foreign nationals during Fiscal Year 2019. All of these detainer refusals are of persons criminally arrested by a law enforcement agency for a criminal offense beyond their violation of federal immigration law.

These convictions include offenses for assaults, burglary, sex offenses, DUI, and homicide. All of these unlawfully present foreign nationals were sought by ICE, and yet instead were released onto the streets of North Carolina by local authorities.”

‘Apolitical’ Prince Harry and Meghan Markle support charity against US-Mexico wall

In the constitutional monarchy of the United Kingdom, royals (what an archaic concept!) are not supposed to be political by being partisan, or interfering in the affairs of government, or even venturing a political opinion.

But the oh-so-woke “Duke and Duchess of Sussex” Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle, the former D-list actress of whom no one had heard until news of their marriage, are not abiding by that unspoken but understood convention.

As an example, in August of this year, a barefoot Harry lectured the world on climate change at the Google Climate Summit in Sicily, never mind the fact that he flew to the summit in a gas-guzzling, CO2-spewing private jet and stayed in a gas-guzzling, CO2-spewing super-yacht while on the island.

That act of eco-hypocrisy was followed by even more, as Harry and Meghan took four gas-guzzling, CO2-spewing private jets in just 11 days for vacation.

Just recently, Harry again virtue-signaled when he announced he stood shoulder-to-shoulder with 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg, the Left’s darling-dujour whom a Swedish church blasphemously calls a “successor” to Jesus Christ.

The Toxic Couple’s latest violation of the no-politics royal protocol is their public support for a California “migrant” charity that opposes the construction of a US-Mexico border wall.

Victoria Ward reports for The Telegraph, October 7, 2019, that each month Harry and Meghan highlight a number of different charities on their sussexroyal Instagram page.

One of the accounts the couple “followed” is that of Border Kindness, a charity founded just last year in direct response to President Trump’s plan to build a wall on the Mexico border.

Before she married Harry, HillaryClinton-supporter Meghan was outspoken about Trump, calling him “misogynistic” and “divisive” during his 2016 presidential campaign.

Founded by Kelly Overton who has masters degrees from both Harvard and Columbia universities, Border Kindness has about 12 volunteers who work in the Mexicali area of Mexico providing clothes, transport, food and legal aid to “migrants” intent on gaining illegal entrance into the United States.

Overton called the “migrant” crisis at the Mexico border “one of the most inhumane and unfair” crises ever seen. He said: “I’m ashamed of this country I’m from. To treat people like this is just beyond belief and we see on the ground that it’s getting worse. Our response is in direct response to President Trump’s immigration policies. We work with women and children who are incredibly vulnerable, who have nothing when they arrive at this city in the desert.”

Overton then wielded Demonrats’ favorite go-to “racism” card. He said that if “white kids were taken from their parents and put somewhere” there would be international outrage.

Acting ICE director calls out jurisdictions with sanctuary policies for threatening public safety

Demorats have no objection to releasing illegal criminals back into our cities to continue to terrorize law-abiding citizens. Remember this when they want to come for your God-give right to protect yourself.

Excerpts from ICE press release dated 9/26/2019:

“U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Acting Director Matthew T. Albence held a White House press briefing Thursday to explain how sanctuary policies threaten public safety and called on the public to hold their local lawmakers accountable. The briefing made clear that local jurisdictions across the U.S. that refuse to cooperate with ICE are complicit in the crimes committed by aliens who ICE could have otherwise been arrested and removed.

Under federal law, ICE has the authority to lodge immigration detainers with law enforcement partners who have custody of individuals arrested on criminal charges and who ICE has probable cause to believe are removable aliens. The detainer form asks the other law enforcement agency to notify ICE in advance of release and to maintain custody of the alien for a brief period so that ICE can take custody of that person in a safe and secure setting upon release from that agency’s custody. Across the United States, several jurisdictions refuse to honor detainers and instead choose to willingly release criminal offenders back into their local communities where they are free to offend.

Acting Director Albence made clear that state and local jurisdictions that refuse to cooperate with immigration enforcement not only betray their duty to protect public safety, but force ICE to be more visible in those areas.

Below are some examples of the risks posed by laws and policies restricting cooperation with ICE:

In September 2019, ICE officers arrested Jose Alejandro Lopez-Gutierrez, 56, in Colorado. Lopez-Gutierrez, a Mexican national, was arrested and booked into the Boulder County (CO) Jail after an arrest for felony sex assault on a child. ICE lodged a detainer on Lopez-Gutierrez in May 2019, but the Boulder County Jail released him from custody three days later without notifying ICE. He has previously been removed on one prior occasion.

In January 2019, the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office (NC) arrested Angel Diaz-Vera, 40, a Mexican national, for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI). ICE lodged a detainer, but he was released from local custody. In June 2019, the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office again arrested Diaz-Vera for two counts of assault on a female, assault by strangulation, assault with a deadly weapon, and DWI. He again was released from Mecklenburg County despite ICE issuing another detainer and remains at large.

In July 2019, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office (OR) arrested Alejandro Maldonado-Hernandez, 30, of Mexico, for manslaughter, assault and reckless driving. ICE lodged a detainer with the Washington County Jail, but he was released in August 2019 and remains at-large.

While ICE conducts daily at-large arrests of criminal aliens, this week, officers also focused on people who had been released from uncooperative jurisdictions. Of the nearly 1,300 at-large arrests made this week, ICE officers apprehended 199 people who could have been arrested at a jail if the agency’s detainers had been honored. Of all the aliens taken into custody:

Three (3) had convictions for murder or manslaughter; 100 had convictions for sex crimes – nearly half (47) had convictions for sex crimes involving a minor; 70 had convictions for drug crimes; and 328 had convictions for driving under the influence.”

Sanctuary Montgomery County, MD: Eighth illegal alien charged with sex crime since July 25

Montgomery County, Maryland is a sanctuary county. And they are having a serious problem with illegal aliens and sex crimes.

Last week I told you about the seventh illegal alien who was arrested for sex crime in five weeks.

Details from that sexual assault: A Honduran national in the United States illegally was accused of raping his 15-year-old stepdaughter. The perp was previously deported in April 2017, but re-entered the United States “sometime thereafter.

Another illegal alien free to roam around in sanctuary Montgomery County and do his thing…

Now it’s been revealed by Kevin Lewis of ABC News that an eighth illegal alien has been charged with rape or sex abuse of a minor in Montgomery County since July 25. Details from Kevin’s tweets:

“Police say 26 year old Oluwakayode Adebusuyi raped an intoxicated woman in his car.

Last summer, Montgomery County Police charged Adebusuyi with 2nd-degree assault, 4th-degree sex offense and false imprisonment. Prosecutors dropped all counts in that case for unspecified reasons. Adebusuyi had been employed as a ride-share driver up until his most recent arrest.

A judge gave Adebusuyi a $250,000 bond. He remains in custody. Should Adebusuyi post bond, Montgomery County will give ICE a courtesy call, but it won’t hold the accused rapist beyond the normal jail release process. Montgomery County has also banned ICE from entering secure portions of the jail.

County Executive Marc Elrich

County Executive Marc Elrich takes no responsibility for the crimes committed by illegal aliens roaming around in his sanctuary haven. He blames the “court system” and says he’s just “simply continuing the practice of the prior administration.”

Six illegal aliens who stabbed a Maryland man to death are identified by ICE as members of MS-13

From Daily Mail: Six illegal immigrants aliens, who allegedly stabbed a Maryland man to death in July, have been identified as MS-13 gang members by the US and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Jonathan Escobar-Hernandez, 20, Marlon Fabian-Flores, 20, Edwin Edgardo Garcia-Martir, 18, Hugo Portillo-Chavez, 31, Jose Fausto Rivera-Coreas, 19, and 20-year-old Odaliz Rosas-Yanez were all arrested and charged with first-degree murder in connection with the murder of 21-year-old Daniel Alejandro Alvarado Cuellar.

Detectives from the Baltimore County Police Homicide Unit also said they arrested Leonel Alexander Velasquez-Hernadez, 16, who has been charged as an adult, over Cuellar’s murder. Cuellar’s body was found in the grass near an apartment building on Loch Raven Boulevard on July 31.

Authorities said they determined that Cuellar was the intended victim of a planned murder involving the seven suspects, who are being held without bail in the Baltimore County Detention Center following bail review hearings.

All of the six illegal immigrants aliens were identified as MS-13 members in an ICE gang database, an ICE spokeswoman told Fox News.

The spokeswoman said ICE issued six immigration detainers.

Officials said five of the suspects are Salvadoran and one is Mexican.

A motive for Cuellar’s murder remains under investigation but authorities believe the victim was killed due to a war between two rival Latino street gangs, the 18th Street and MS-13, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Cuellar had been seen making a hand gesture that was believed to be ‘indicative of an affiliation with the 18th Street,’ detectives said.

Sanctuary California: Illegal alien shoots deputy, sparks manhunt & chase

From Fox News: A California sheriff is calling for immigration reform in his state after he says sanctuary city policies freed a violent illegal immigrant who went on to shoot a police officer and lead cops on a wild, high-speed chase.

Guadalupe Lopez-Herrara, 51, was taken into custody Thursday, a day after the Merced County’s Sheriff’s Office says Lopez-Herrara shot a deputy attempting to arrest him for allegedly violating a restraining order, FOX26 reported.

“This person is not a legal citizen within the United States,” Merced Sheriff Van Warnke said at a press conference Thursday. “We had him in our custody in January of this year. And because of the folks in Sacramento limiting our ability to cooperate with ICE, we could not turn him over.

The deputy, a sergeant with the sheriff’s office, sustained non-life threatening injuries after police say Lopez-Herrara, described as a known violent criminal, shot him in the leg and vest Wednesday.

A shootout subsequently broke out between Lopez-Herrara and deputies — but Lopez-Herrara managed to hide behind shrubbery and open fire, pinning down cops long enough to allow his escape.

Several law enforcement agencies launched a manhunt but were unable to locate him until the following morning. A high-speed pursuit ensued after Lopez-Herrara was spotted in a stolen truck on Highway 46, FOX26 reported.

The chase — which reached speeds of 120 mph — ended when Lopez-Herrara hit a spike strip.

Police say Lopez-Herrera fired shots at them from inside the vehicle, but he was stopped by a K-9 and taken into custody.

“Bottom line is our immigration policies need to be revamped because we’re gonna continue to have more of this situation happen…We knew ahead of time this guy’s potential for violence was there,” Warnke said.

Sanctuary city laws in California have limited local law enforcement’s ability to convey information to federal agencies about illegal immigrants taken into their custody.

Warnke said Lopez-Herrara has a violent history that includes assault with a deadly weapon, felony assault, spousal abuse and possession of narcotics.

He is currently being held at the Merced County Jail.
