HR 3222: Freedom of religion in danger with Democrat House majority

On Nov. 16, 1993, then-President Bill Clinton, a Democrat, signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) that “ensures that interests in religious freedom are protected” into law, with an almost-unanimous approval by Congress. Every House member approved of the bill; only three senators voted no.

Incredibly, both the House and Senate versions of RFRA were sponsored by Democrats: Rep. Chuck Shumer (NY) and Sen. Ted Kennedy (MA).

Then is then, and now is now.

The Democrat Party that spearheaded RFRA has become the hate-America, hate-God Demonrat Party that now is bent on the all-but-in-name repeal of the same law it once championed.

In an op/ed for the Washington Examiner, November 14, 2018, former Rep. Ernest Istook (R-Okla.), who now teaches political science at Utah Valley University, reports that even before the Nov. 6 election, 50 House Democrats had co-sponsored H.R. 3222, a bill to gut the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA). With a majority of Demonrats now in control of the House of Representatives after the recent mid-term elections, there are now 172 House Democrats who support H.R. 3222, as their party takes control of the House.

H.R. 3222, sanctimoniously and deceptively titled the Do No Harm Act, is sponsored by Rep. Joseph Kennedy (D-Mass.) and co-sponsored by 170 other House members, all Demonrats, one of whom is the anticipated incoming chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), 71. That committee would be in charge of approving the undoing of RFRA.

H.R. 3222’s companion Senate bill (S. 2918) is authored by Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and co-sponsored by 28 other Demonrat senators.

Instead of a head-on repeal of RFRA, H.R. 3222 and S. 2918 take a sly approach by creating a long itemized list of exemptions from the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, thereby diminishing and undermining RFRA’s protection of religious freedom. The exemptions include sexual orientation, gender identity, and abortion. In effect, our Constitutional First Amendment right to freedom of religion would be declared less important than other claims never mentioned in the Constitution and often not even legislated by elected officials.

Groups endorsing HR 3222 and S 2918 are the usual leftwing suspects and promoters of evil: the ACLU, Americans United for Separation of Church and State, the Human Rights Campaign, Center for American Progress, Lambda Legal, NAACP, NARAL, National Center for Transgender Equality, National Organization of Women, and Planned Parenthood.

Istook writes:

H.R. 3222 would declare that religious freedoms must yield when they run counter to the LGBTQ agenda or to other progressive causes such as abortion rights. Pushing this are progressive groups which claim that religious beliefs are just a cover for discrimination, bigotry, and hate….

The turnaround [since RFRA] dramatizes how culture and politics have changed in 25 years. Secular values have been given priority and religious freedoms have been narrowed.

Istook warns that HR 3222 and S 2918 will also reverse the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby and Masterpiece Cakeshop decisions. State-level versions of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act are also being attacked. Those were enacted in 21 states after the U.S. Supreme Court in 1997 ruled that RFRA protects only against intrusive laws on the federal level.

And although the GOP-majority Senate is very unlikely to approve S. 2918 or any legislation gutting the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, those who oppose RFRA will be emboldened by HR 3222, and they will keep trying.

Hypocrite much? Singer Pink’s husband posts message saying looters will be shot

Carey Hart Instagram photo

Odd that in the past, Pink has posted social media messages advocating for “common sense gun legislation.”

Well maybe not considering it is Hollyweird folks. Guns for me but not for thee…

Also odd is that people are actually defending looters. Wonder if these people sleep with their front doors unlocked at night?

From Yahoo: As if the devastating fires taking lives and ruining homes in California weren’t enough, people are now dealing with looters capitalizing on evacuated or burned-down houses. That includes celebrities.

Singer Pink‘s husband Carey Hart‘s post — warning looters in Malibu, the location of the Woolsey Fire, that they “will be shot on” sight has gone viral. The photo, of armed men calling themselves the “PDC Posse,” some wearing bandanas or masks while waving guns, has been controversial. There are of course supporters (Second Amendment!), but many are rightly (nice bias there, Yahoo) questioning it.

“You’re willing to shoot to kill people over your material ‘valuables’?” one commenter wrote to the retired motocross star. You sound like you’re actually dumber than the looters! I could see if you were protecting lives, but you have a gang of masked men with guns ready to kill over your insured possessions?!”

Pink, Hart and their two children were evacuated from their beachside home, which was spared during the fire. Generally, many residents who fled haven’t returned — and security systems aren’t working because there are power outages — so looters are taking advantage of the many multimillion-dollar mansions that are easy to gain access to.

Being in the thick of it gives a different perspective though. Shannen Doherty — who has been in Malibu to protect her house, which was spared, and help neighbors who weren’t as lucky (her friend’s home, where she was married, was charred) — posted an image on social media that was either the same or along those lines as Hart’s. She later deleted it after a similar debate broke out in the comments and apologized for sending the wrong message with a gun picture.

“If I offended anyone with my last post, which I deleted, I apologize,” the Beverly Hills, 90210 and Charmed actress said on her Instagram Stories. “I’m overly tired. I’m exhausted. I may not of used the best judgement.”

She continued, “Let me be clear — I do not like guns. I don’t like the idea that a bunch of people have guns. I don’t like the idea of shootings. I don’t like mass shootings. I also don’t like looters. And I don’t think it’s OK to pick through the remains of someone’s house. But I would also appreciate this not being turned into anybody’s political agenda. And please don’t assume you know what my beliefs or my politics are because you don’t. I keep those very private. I will say that I’m extremely stressed. I’ve been in Malibu trying to protect my house and checking on my neighbors and seeing many of my friend’s homes just completely destroyed.”

10 reasons NOT to vote next Tuesday

From John Philip Sousa IV’s essay on Stars & Stripes Forever:

Given that just a 2 or 3 percentage point drop in turnout among Republicans mean Democrats take control of Congress next year, I thought I’d list a few reasons why Republicans might want to consider skipping this election. Here goes …

1. If you like higher taxes, and you hate the explosive growth, new jobs, and higher incomes, that have lifted every American family — especially the poor — then don’t vote.

2. If you enjoy the polarization, blame shifting, and finger pointing in Congress, don’t vote. It seems like the moment the results of the last election were announced Democrats have been doing everything they can to create chaos and stop any progress at all. Imagine the congressional investigations they’ll launch if they take control of Congress. With Democrats in charge, expect even more resist, disruption, and delay.

3. If you want more violence in the streets, stay home. Groups like ANTIFA attack regular Americans with Democrat encouragement. Black Lives Matter regularly advocates for violence against police. Put Democrats in control and voters will send a clear message to these groups that their approach works and they should step it up in time for the 2020 Presidential elections.

4. If you want to replace rule of law with rule by the mob, don’t go to the polls. We all watched while Democrats found now Justice Kavanaugh guilty by allegation without the slightest shred of proof. They sought not to prevent confirmation by appealing to reason or argument. They worked to destroy a man’s reputation, career, and life — along with his wife, 2 daughters, and distraught mother — without presenting even a hint of justification.

5. If you want to stop the confirmation of conservative judges and appointees, forget about voting. Democrats have successfully stopped or delayed more presidential appointments than any congress in the last hundred or so years. Put them in charge of Congress and the trickle of confirmations will grind to a total stop.

6. If you think open borders for anyone who cares to enter is a good idea, then do nothing on November 6th. If you hate the idea of a wall, border security, or immigration enforcement; then Democrat control is for you. Don’t vote, let Democrats win, and we’ll see millions of new migrants enter America scot free. Not only that, but we’ll also see many billions more in spending on things like welfare, health care, and education for immigrants who flock here.

7. If you want more sanctuary towns, cities, and states that protect criminal illegal immigrants, then ignore election day. Crimes committed by illegal immigrants include murder, assault, rape, robbery and many more. But in sanctuary states and municipalities, police are banned from cooperating with federal authorities responsible for prosecuting and deporting illegal immigrants who commit crimes. If you want more places where violent criminal immigrants are protected, vote Democrat in November!

8. If your heart’s desire is more government-controlled everything, then don’t vote. If you agree Obamacare doesn’t go far enough and that only a total takeover of healthcare by government is acceptable, then stay home on November 6th. Health care is only the beginning. Democrats now openly advocate socialism as a better approach than allowing free people, freely choosing, to decide our economic well-being.

9. If you’re ready to dispense with the Constitution and the freedoms it protects, forget about voting. If you agree with the left’s view that things like respect for personal freedom, individual dignity, and limited government are old-fashioned, then don’t vote. The Kavanaugh hearings were only a single shot in their assault on justice, rule of law, and freedom. They’ve been clear they also want to repeal the 2nd Amendment — by legislation or court decree. And it won’t stop there. With them in charge, our constitution and guaranteed rights will be little more than a memory.

10. If you like the idea of breaking the budget and running up even bigger deficits, don’t vote. Obama ran up our deficit by trillions of dollars — more than all the other presidents in America’s 200 year history COMBINED. More Democrats in Congress will make sure Trump and Republicans don’t return to the old-school idea of discipline and restraint in spending, that they can’t cut the size of government, make it more responsive, or bring new efficiencies.

These are just a few of the reasons you may want to stay home and let Democrats run rampant over the election this November.

Or, you can go to the polls and stop Democrat Socialist policies that will hurt our future, damage our economy, and destroy our freedom.

In this highly polarized, divided environment, every single vote counts, and with this election everything is on the line.

November 6th, it’s up to you.

Minnesota House race: Democrat Muslim Ilhan Omar is a bigamist who married her brother

Minnesota state legislator Ilhan Omar, a Democrat and a Somali Muslim, currently leads the race to fill the federal House seat being vacated by Rep. Keith Ellison, also a Democrat Muslim.

Immediately after being elected to her current seat in 2016, Omar faced allegations — soon backed by a remarkable amount of evidence — that she had married her own brother in 2009. (They officially divorced in December 2017.)

Omar said she had married “British citizen” Ahmed Nur Said Elmi in 2009, but that the allegation that he is her brother is “absurd and offensive.”

Now, David Steinberg of PJ Media has found “exclusive” new evidence — from official archived high school records and corroborating sources — that strongly supports the claim that Ahmed Nur Said Elmi is Ilhan Omar’s brother.

According to official student enrollment records archived by St. Paul Public Schools and the state of Minnesota, an “Ahmed N. Elmi” was enrolled as a senior in the Class of 2003 at Arlington Senior High School in St. Paul, MN, from September 6, 2002, until June 10, 2003. He graduated and received a diploma.

The enrollment record states that “Ahmed N. Elmi” was born on April 4, 1985 — the same date of birth for Omar’s husband, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, in both Omar’s 2009 marriage documents and her 2017 divorce proceedings.

Steinberg conducted an extensive background search, but did not find any other person named “Ahmed Nur Said Elmi,” “Ahmed N. Elmi,” or “Ahmed Elmi” with the birthdate April 4, 1985. Omar’s husband and the boy who attended Arlington Senior High School in St. Paul, MN are one and the same.

Steinberg contacted several members of the Class of 2003, and was told that Ahmed Elmi “was living with his father” while attending Arlington Senior High School. Elmi’s father was the same man Ilhan Omar has always publicly referred to as her own father: Nur Said Elmi Mohamed.

Here is Mohamed’s Facebook account, where he refers to himself as Nur Said.

Steinberg emailed Rep. Ilhan Omar, the MN Democratic Party (DFL) chairman, and the MN DFL CD-5 chairman, asking for their comment.

No one responded, but Omar intimated in a tweet that “the Republican/right-wing propaganda machines” are behind the allegations she had committed incest by marrying her brother.

Steinberg writes:

The motivation for the marriage [to her brother] remains unclear. However, the totality of the evidence points to possible immigration fraud and student loan fraud. As this implicates Rep. Omar in multiple state and federal felonies, I have contacted the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Minnesota to submit all other information uncovered during our investigation.

But Ilhan Omar didn’t just commit incest; she’s also a bigamist.

Back in August 2016, Scott Johnson of Powerline revealed that when Ilhan Omar married her brother Ahmed Nur Said Elmi in 2009, she was still married to Ahmed Hirsi, whom she’d married in 2002 and with whom she had three children. Johnson wrote:

Inputting the name Ilhan Omar, I have confirmed both marriages as noted in the Somalispot post via the online Minnesota Official Marriage System….

Minnesota law defines bigamy as “knowingly having a prior marriage that is not dissolved” while also “contract[ing] a marriage in this state.” Bigamy is a crime punishable by up to five years in prison or a fine up to $10,000. The definition and penalty provisions of the crime of bigamy are set forth in Minn. Stat. § 609.355.

Arizona Senate race: Democrat Kyrsten Sinema calls stay-at-home moms ‘leeches’

Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Arizona), 42, is the first openly-bisexual person to be elected to Congress. She is now running to replace RINO Sen. Jeff Flake (R) in the U.S. Senate.

Raised a Mormon, Sinema began her political career as a Green Party activist, but switched to the Democrat Party. After she was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in November 2012, she shifted toward the political center, crafting an image and record as a “conservative” center-left Democrat, despite the fact that in 2002 in a letter to The Arizona Republic, she trashed capitalism: “Until the average American realizes that capitalism damages her livelihood while augmenting the livelihoods of the wealthy, the Almighty Dollar will continue to rule.” (Source: Wall Street Journal)

According to The New York Times, Sinema has given “contradictory answers about her early life,” describing her childhood as one of great financial hardships, without “running water or electricity,” but the Times found that Sinema’s mother and stepfather made monthly payments on gas, electricity, and phone bills. Asked whether she had embellished details from her childhood, Sinema insisted, “I’ve shared what I remember from my childhood. I know what I lived through.”

The Times also observed that Sinema is running “one of the most moderate-sounding and cautious Senate campaigns this year, keeping the media at arms-length and avoiding controversial issues” and mentions of President Trump. Both Republicans and Democrats have said Sinema has “few major legislative accomplishments to her record” and is running “on a political image that she has shaped and reshaped over the years. And nothing is more central to it now than her childhood homelessness.”

Despite her contrived image as a “conservative” Democrat, Sinema is pro-abortion, with a 100% rating from Planned Parenthood, and committed to “advance” LBGT “rights”.

Writing for The Federalist on October 19, 2018, Bre Payton reminds Arizonans that:

  • In a 2006 interview with Scottsdale nightlife magazine 944, Sinema called stay-at-home moms “leeches”. She said: “These women who act like staying at home, leeching off their husbands or boyfriends, and just cashing the checks is some sort of feminism because they’re choosing to live that life. That’s bullshit. I mean, what the f*** are we really talking about here?”
  • In newly resurfaced videos, Sinema is seen calling conservatives “Neanderthals”.

In an email, Brian Burch, President of Catholic Vote, writes:

And this woman wants to represent Arizona in the United States Senate!?

Just imagine what ‘Senator Sinema’ would be like! She represents everything we oppose. She has a 100% pro-abortion voting record and will vote for Planned Parenthood every time. She favors a full government takeover of health care. She opposes religious freedom. And Chuck Schumer will be able to count on her to vote against every single judge Trump nominates…

Imagine if a Republican had called single mothers ‘leeches.’

This is the same crazy politician who referred to her home state of Arizona as the “meth lab of democracy.” And during her anti-war protest days, she depicted U.S. troops as skeletons inflicting “U.S. terror” in Iraq.

The Arizona Senate race is neck-and-neck in the polls. Some believe this race will decide who controls the Senate next.

Kyrsten Sinema is running against Republican Martha McSally in Arizona’s Senate race.

Like Sinema, Martha McSally, 52, is a Congresswoman in the U.S. House of Representatives. She is a retired military officer who served in the U. S. Air Force from 1988 to 2010, rising to the rank of colonel. One of the highest-ranking female pilots in the history of the Air Force, McSally was the first American woman to fly in combat after the 1991 lifting of the prohibition on female combat pilots.

As of October 19, 2018, Real Clear Politics‘ average of polling data has McSally narrowly ahead by just 0.7%, at 46% (McSally) vs. 45.4% (Sinema).

Update (Oct. 24):

Krysten Sinema is also a witch/satanist.

From Townhall.com:

Emails reported in the Washington Examiner reveal that she invited a feminist witches coven called Pagan Cluster to help celebrate International Women’s Day and protest the Iraq war in March of 2003. Later that year, she wrote about a Miami protest in which she was “singing and spiraling in the pagan’s circle only 5 rows back from the police line.”

Real environmentalism: Trump signs bill to save oceans from plastic trash

Touting themselves as environmentalists, Obama and the Democrats had eight years to do it, but they didn’t — leaving the problem to grow into truly monstrous proportions.

But the GOP-majority Congress is doing something about it, and President Trump, reviled and trashed by environmentalists, is championing it.

What is it?

It’s the Save Our Seas Act, an important bill to rally the world to reduce marine debris, especially the over 8 million tons of plastic garbage dumped into our oceans. As Jacquie Kubin of Communities Digital News puts it:

The problem of plastic in our oceans has been left to fester to unmanageable effect. Saying that over eight millions tons of garbage, plastic, is dumped into our oceans, the President says Save our Seas is an effort to clean the plastic out. No other political leader, not in the U.S. or any other country, is willing to stand up for the oceans.

Kubin describes the problem:

  • Oceans cover more than 70% of our planet. It is what gives us life and Earth’s moniker “The Blue Planet”.
  • But human beings are choking the oceans with our plastic garbage, resulting in gigantic floating patches of marine debris in the Pacific Ocean — the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
  • About 80% of the debris in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch comes from land-based activities in North America and Asia. Other sources of this trash are boaters, offshore oil rigs, and large cargo ships that dump or loose debris directly into the water.
  • 8 million metric tons of plastic find their ways into the oceans from just 10 rivers, 8 of them in Asia, according to a Scientific American article.
  • More than 2 million tons of single-use (use once and throw away) plastic soft drinks bottles are sold each year, only 6.6% of which are made from recycled materials. Those single-use plastic bottles are the most common type of plastic packaging found washed up on shorelines globally.
  • 79,000 tons of marine trash are fishing nets. Those nets and plastic caps and rings entrap marine life, like this duck and a humpback whale.

  • All those millions of tons of plastics swirling around in the oceans will take centuries to break down.
  • As the plastics break down, smaller particulates are ingested by sea and bird life, which in turn are ingested by humans. Scientists have collected up to 1.9 million bits of microplastic in one square mile of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Most of this debris comes from plastic bags, bottle caps, plastic water bottles, and Styrofoam cups.
  • According to the National Geographic, nearly every seabird on Earth is eating plastic or eating fish that have eaten plastic. A new study found that “So much plastic trash is flowing into the oceans that 90 percent of seabirds eat it now and virtually everyone will be consuming it by 2050.” Plastic found inside birds includes bags, bottle caps, synthetic fibers from clothing, and tiny rice-sized bits. The study’s lead author, Chris Wilcox, a research scientist with Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization, said that the number of species and number of individuals within species that you find plastic in is rapidly increasing by a couple percent every year.

The plastic garbage in oceans is an international problem, and cannot be solved by any one country.

S. 3508 – Save Our Seas Act of 2018 was introduced on Sept. 26, 2018 by a Republican, Sen. Dan Sullivan of Alaska, and co-sponsored by Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) and two Democrat senators Sheldon Whitehouse (RI) and Bill Nelson (FL). The bill:

  • Amends the Marine Debris Act to require the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to work with: (1) other agencies to address both land- and sea-based sources of marine debris, and (2) the Department of State and other agencies to promote international action to reduce the incidence of marine debris.
  • Allows NOAA to make sums available for assisting in the cleanup and response required by severe marine debris events.
  • Urges the President to:
    • support funding for research and development of bio-based and other alternatives or environmentally feasible improvements to materials that reduce municipal solid waste;
    • work with foreign countries [China] that contribute the most to the global marine debris problem in order to find a solution to the problem;
    • study issues related to marine debris, including the economic impacts of marine debris; and
    • encourage the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative to consider the impact of marine debris in relevant future trade agreements.
  • Reauthorizes for FY2018-FY2022: (1) the Marine Debris Program, (2) an information clearinghouse on marine debris, and (3) enforcement of laws about discarded marine debris from ships.

The Save Our Seas Act of 2018 was passed by the Senate on Sept. 26, 2018, and by the House of Representatives on September 27, 2018.

On October 11, 2018, President Donald John Trump signed the Save Our Seas Act into law.

Trump administration HHS dumps contract to buy aborted baby body parts

It is bad enough that taxpayers continue to be forced to “subsidize” Planned Parenthood — the largest abortion business in America, killing 320,000 unborn babies every year, 900 babies every dayto the tune of $400 million a year, thanks to these four senators. (See “Four senators blocked Senate from passing bill to defund Planned Parenthood,” Aug. 26, 2018.)

Did you know that taxpayers also pay for federal government agencies’ purchases of aborted baby body parts for medical research?

In response to pressure from Congress and pro-life groups, including Operation Rescue, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) finally terminated a contract with Advanced Biosciences, a company that procures aborted baby remains from abortion facilities and sells them.

Here’s the HHS’s press release of Sept. 24, 2018:

After a recent review of a contract between Advanced Bioscience Resources, Inc. and the Food and Drug Administration to provide human fetal tissue to develop testing protocols, HHS was not sufficiently assured that the contract included the appropriate protections applicable to fetal tissue research or met all other procurement requirements. As a result, that contract has been terminated, and HHS is now conducting an audit of all acquisitions involving human fetal tissue to ensure conformity with procurement and human fetal tissue research laws and regulations. In addition, HHS has initiated a comprehensive review of all research involving fetal tissue to ensure consistency with statutes and regulations governing such research, and to ensure the adequacy of procedures and oversight of this research in light of the serious regulatory, moral, and ethical considerations involved. Finally, HHS is continuing to review whether adequate alternatives exist to the use of human fetal tissue in HHS funded research and will ensure that efforts to develop such alternatives are funded and accelerated.

While that is good news, the Susan B. Anthony List, which spearheaded the effort to halt all such activity, points out that this means that fetal tissue experimentation may continue as long as it meets government “standards”. SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said in a written statement:

[HHS] Secretary Azar must put an immediate moratorium on funding for research using aborted baby organs and tissue purchased from the abortion industry. Further, Secretary Azar should instead devote tax dollars to ethical alternatives that – unlike experimentation on fetal tissue – produce successful therapies for patients. Canceling a single contract and conducting a review is a small step forward, but overall is completely inadequate.

Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue also points out that HHS is just one federal government agency that canceled its contract to procure aborted baby body part. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) currently funds experimentation using human fetal tissue and organs to the tune of $100 million U.S. taxpayer dollars. Much of the aborted baby tissue and organs goes to create human-mouse chimera — mice that are altered to more closely resemble human systems.

The President of Operation Rescue says:

“Ghoulish experiments that use humanized mice… have no business being funded by the American taxpayer, most of whom would be horrified to learn their tax money was being used in this way. All experimentation on aborted baby remains funded by the U.S. government must be terminated for the sake of human decency.”

Aborted baby tissue is also being used to produce vaccines. See:

Democrats, Party of Evil: Hillary Clinton & Eric Holder call for violence

Finally, a public figure is openly saying what so many of us have been thinking.

A week ago, in a discussion on Twitter on the despicable tactics deployed by the Left, Marjus Persson @notch, the 39-year-old Swedish self-made billionaire who created the Minecraft video game, tweeted his 3.7 million followers (h/t Infowars):

The latest example of the evil Left is a special-ed teacher in Rosemount, Minnesota who, as “Spooky Spam” on Twitter, urged that Justice Brett Kavanaugh be killed:

“So whose [sic] gonna take one for the team and kill Kavanaugh?”

As reported by LifeNews.com, the teacher, an instructor at the Intermediate School District 917’s Alliance Education Center, quickly deleted her tweet and even her Twitter account. But netizens captured her tweet and reported her to the FBI and U.S. Secret Service. The FBI in Minneapolis confirmed they are aware of her tweet (see below).

Intermediate School District 917, based in Rosemount, provides services to special education students in nine public school districts across the southeast metro area. The Alliance Education Center serves students ages 5 to 21 who have autism spectrum disorders, developmental disabilities, behavioral disorders and other disabilities.

The (Minnesota) StarTribune refuses to name the teacher “because she has not been charged with a crime.” Calls to a phone number listed for the teacher were not immediately returned.

On Oct. 8, two days after the homicidal tweet, in a statement on the school district’s website, ISD 917 Superintendent Mark Zuzek said that “Pursuant with the (Minnesota) Data Practices Act, we are limited to providing additional information regarding this matter,” but that the teacher did not make the post on Twitter while at school, and that she had been placed on paid administrative leave “pending the outcome of the investigation.”

The next day, StarTribune reported that the teacher had resigned.

Instead of chastising this teacher and the Democrat Party’s rank and file, leaders of the Party of Evil are openly calling for violence.

On Sunday, Oct. 7, speaking to a crowd of campaign volunteers at a rally in support of Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams in Stockbridge, Georgia, former Attorney General Eric Holder flatly rejected Michelle Obama’s call for civility. Holder instead urged Democrats to use violence against their political opponents:

“It is time for us, as Democrats, to be as tough as they are, to be as dedicated as they are, to be as committed as they are…. Michelle always says, ‘When they go low, we go high.’ No. When they go low, we kick ’em.”

Responding to Holder’s call to violence, the crowd cheered and chanted “Fight!”.

Two days later, on Tuesday, Oct. 9, in an interview with Fake News CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, Hillary Clinton, who during the 2016 presidential election called millions of Americans over whom she meant to rule “deplorables”, said:

You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about. That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”

Below is CNN’s tweet about the interview:

Here’s the link to the YouTube video of the interview, if you can stomach hearing Hillary’s grating voice and seeing her ever so self-satisfied face. It is noteworthy that the comments on YouTube are overwhelmingly anti-Hillary.

That same day, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky) — who was attacked and beaten by a Democrat neighbor last Fall, and chased and verbally harassed by anti-Kavanaugh activists at Washington’s Reagan National Airport just last week — said what many of us have thought. He told a Kentucky radio show that heated political rhetoric has the potential to turn deadly:

“I fear that there’s going to be an assassination. I really worry that somebody is going to be killed, and that those who are ratcheting up the conversation … they have to realize they bear some responsibility if this elevates to violence.

Senator Paul Paul was not being hyperbolic. He was at the congressional baseball practice last summer when a Bernie Sanders supporter, James T. Hodgkinson, opened fire, hitting House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La) in the hip and injuring two Capitol police officers and an aide.

Paul’s wife, Kelley, revealed in a Breitbart interview on Friday that she sleeps with a “loaded gun by my bed,” has updated their home’s security system and has “deadbolts all around my house.” Kelley also wrote an op-ed published by CNN in which she called on Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) to tone down his rhetoric. In June, Booker told his supporters “get up in the face of congresspeople.”
