Condoleezza Rice’s Powerful Story 
Of Why She Supports Second Amendment
by Rusty Weiss
{ lidblog.com } ~ Condoleezza Rice, secretary of state during the Bush administration, was a guest on “The View” last week... sharing a story of how the Second Amendment helped save black Americans, and her family in particular, in the late fifties and early sixties. “Let me tell you why I’m a defender of the Second Amendment,” Rice began. “I was a little girl growing up in Birmingham, Alabama, in the late fifties, early sixties. There was no way that Bull Connor and the Birmingham Police were going to protect you.” Connor, an Alabama Democrat, used attack dogs and turned fire hoses on black civil rights demonstrators in the early 1960s, and who took other nefarious actions to counter the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Rice’s father knew they were getting no help from Connor when it came to white supremacists rolling through the neighborhood...  https://lidblog.com/condi-rice-second-amendment/

Fla. Senate Passes Bill to Arm 
Some Teachers, Restrict Gun Sales
by Mark Wallheiser 
{ newsmax.com } ~ In response to a deadly Florida school shooting last month, the state's Senate narrowly passed a bill Monday that would create new restrictions on rifle sales and allow some teachers to carry guns in schools... The 20-18 vote came after three hours of often emotional debate. Support and opposition crossed party lines, and it was clear many of those who voted for the bill weren't entirely happy with it. "Do I think this bill goes far enough? No! No, I don't!" said Democratic Sen. Lauren Book, who tearfully described visiting Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School after 17 people were fatally shot on Valentine's Day. She also would have liked a ban on assault-style rifles, like many of the students who traveled to the state Capitol to ask lawmakers to go even further to stop future mass shootings. But Book said she couldn't let the legislative session end Friday without doing something...  https://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/school-shooting-florida-guns/2018...

US: Muslim Calls for Murder Increasing
by Judith Bergman
{ gatestoneinstitute.org } ~ In December 2017, four imams -- at mosques in North Carolina, New Jersey and Texas -- called for killing Jews... Two of the imams quoted from a hadith that says: "The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him". Two other imams, respectively, asked Allah "to destroy the Zionists and their allies, and those who assist them" and "to wreak vengeance upon the plundering oppressors". Prior to these December calls, in July 2017, two imams in California Riverside and Davis also called for killing Jews. One imam  quoted the hadith above. He later apologized, claiming that "The last thing that I would do is intentionally hurt anyone, Muslim, Jewish or otherwise. It is not in my heart"... Why are these imam spreading hated to kill in America, they should be jailed or deported.  https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/11987/us-mosques-muslims-incitement

Americans Shut Down Democrats’ Global
Warming Obsession With Bombshell Stats
by Michael Bastasch
{ westernjournal.com } ~ If Democrats take control of Congress and the White House in 2020... only six percent of likely voters think they should focus on fighting global warming, according to a new poll. A poll of likely voters found “31 percent said they would want Democrats to focus on health care,” Vox reported of a new poll by Civis Analytics, which was formed by former liar-nObama campaign staffers. “Guns were the second most cited issue, at 15 percent, followed by immigration 14 percent, deficit reduction 11 percent, and climate change only 6 percent,” Vox reported of the poll...   https://www.westernjournal.com/americans-shut-democrats-obsession-g...

FBI agent Peter Strzok Informed of 
liar-Clinton Server Breach – Did Not Follow Up 
by Jim E.
{ thepoliticalinsider.com } ~ Well, now, isn’t this interesting? Anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok, the agent initially in charge of investigating liar-Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server during the 2016 campaign... may have been responsible for a major screw-up toward the end of his investigation. Fox News has the details: During the final months of the liar-Clinton email investigation, FBI agent Peter Strzok was advised of an irregularity in the metadata of liar-Hillary Clinton’s server that suggested a possible breach, but there was no significant follow up, according to two sources with knowledge of the matter. Sources told Fox News that Strzok, who sent anti-Trump text messages that got him removed from the ongoing Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, was told about the metadata anomaly in 2016, but Strzok did not support a formal damage assessment. One source said: “Nothing happened.”... If Strzok didn't follow up, Mueller should.   https://thepoliticalinsider.com/peter-strzok-clinton-breach/?utm_me...

Why Low Oil Prices Help America Strategically 
by Harold Hutchison:  We’re sure you all have heard Vladimir Putin talking real big and tough about his new nukes. Don’t believe that hype. Two of those “invincible” weapons, that nuclear-powered cruise missile and the hypersonic weapon, will be easily handled by the lasers America is working on.

          That is, if the Russians can even get their super-weapons fielded. One reason they may have trouble is the price of oil and natural gas, and President Donald Trump’s policies are sending those prices down. This should sound familiar. In the book Victory, Peter Schweizer described how Ronald Reagan defeated the Soviet Union with low oil prices. Back then, Reagan secured it by getting the Saudis to ramp up production. Trump, though, wants to promote American oil and gas, some of which is exported to countries like Poland.
          In other words, not only is Putin getting a smaller pie, he is losing part of that smaller pie to the United States. It’s kind of hard to fund a new military and pay off the oligarchs and other shady figures when the price of the stuff you are selling drops and you’re not the only person selling it. In short, Putin may boast about the wonder weapons, but a shortage of funds means they will take longer to develop and field. By which point, the United States has counters in place.
          Iran will also take a hit. Like Moscow, Tehran needs the oil money to pay for advanced weapons. China is a likely customer for that oil, but the supertankers carrying said oil have to pass through the Andaman Sea, and the increasingly powerful Indian Navy. It’s kind of hard for the ayatollahs to buy new weapons in large quantities when the product they sell for the necessary funds isn’t selling for as much.
          When we talk energy policy, we’re not just talking about how cheap it is to fill up your gas tank. We are also talking about a powerful tool to advance America’s strategic interests. Or put a crimp in the plans of America’s enemies. ~The Patriot Post

ALERT ALERT

Schumer Refusing To Help Border Kids
Wants To Hurt Trump Instead

The controversy over how underage illegal aliens are handled at the border is heating up — but Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer just rejected a good-faith proposal to fix the problem.

A growing number of people on both sides of the political aisle have expressed concern for border separations, which occur when migrants are caught breaking the law along the border while they have children with them, or when the often exploitative relationship between adults and minors at the border cannot be established.

A vast amount of mis-information and outright lying about the situation has muddied the water, making it tough to understand the situation in its entirety.

Both liberals and conservatives, however, have voiced their support for a better system that results in fewer family separations, and even President Donald Trump has indicated that he is willing to stand with Congress if they change the law.

Shockingly, however, it looks like one of the most well-known faces of the Democratic party isn’t willing to take action, and is instead playing politics in order to attack Trump.

On Tuesday, Schumer openly rejected a Republican proposal to fix the immigrant separation problem at the legislative level, and instead whined about the president.

“There are so many obstacles to legislation and when the president can do it with his own pen, it makes no sense,” Schumer stated, according to The Hill.

“Legislation is not the way to go here when it’s so easy for the president to sign it,” he complained.

Democrats Reject Bill To Keep Families Together At Border – Schumer Says He “Wants To Keep Focus On Trump”

Think about that for a second: The president’s job is to execute existing laws. The legislature’s job is to change or enact new laws when needed.

A senator elected to the legislature for exactly that purpose is now refusing to do his job and pass legislation, while simultaneously blaming the president for enforcing the existing laws, as he is sworn to do.

If there was any doubt that Schumer and the Democrats are playing politics instead of trying to actually help migrant families, the senator made his intentions clear: Obstruct and point fingers at Trump.

“Asked if that meant Democrats would not support a bill backed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to keep immigrant families together while seeking asylum on the U.S. border, Schumer said they want to keep the focus on Trump,” The Hill explained.

Make no mistake: The Democrats dragging their feet and refusing to back legislation already drafted by Republicans will prolong the problems at the border.

“Schumer’s opposition to a legislative fix means there likely won’t be a quick end to the emotional images of immigrant children being separated from their families unless Trump backs down,” The Hill reported.

“Democrats want to keep the pressure on Trump instead of having Congress assume responsibility for the growing crisis,” the news outlet continued.

Again: There’s a solution ready to go, with Republicans including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell ready to support it. Yet Democrats like Schumer apparently believe that scoring political points against Trump is more important than helping broken families on the border, even as their own liberal voters demand action.

“Congress alone can fix it,” stated Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Monday.

“I support, and all of the senators of the Republican conference support, a plan that keeps families together,” McConnell agreed.

“We need to fix the problem and it requires a legislative solution,” he said.

Yet Democrats refuse to budge.

This “do nothing but blame Trump” response from the left should prove beyond a doubt that all the tears and hand-wringing from liberals are disingenuous. They’re for show. If it was truly about helping innocent kids at the border, Schumer and his fellow Democrats could act right now.

If their priority was actually to solve the problem and help broken families, scoring points against Trump shouldn’t even be a concern. Even if they believed he was being stubborn on the issue, they could take the high road by doing their jobs and supporting bipartisan legislation.

They don’t, because solving the problem was never their goal. They are playing political games and using devastated children as pawns, while pretending that the president is the monster.

That’s sick… and the American people need to see exactly who is doing the obstruction.

SLAVEHOLDER??

Washington Post Compares
Jeff Sessions To Slaveholder’

The Washington Post compared Attorney General Jeff Sessions to “slaveholders” after he quoted the Bible on Thursday while discussing his department’s policy of prosecuting all illegal immigrants who cross the border.

Sessions made the statement during a speech to law enforcement officers in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

WaPo ran a story entitled “Sessions cites Bible passage used to defend slavery in defense of separating immigrant families” by general assignment editor Keith McMillan and religion reporter Julie Zauzmer on Friday.

Rather than detailing the statistics Sessions cited in the speech that explain the immigration policy, the story quoted John Fea, a history professor at Messiah College in Pennsylvania.

“This is the same argument that Southern slaveholders and the advocates of a Southern way of life made,” Fea said.

Sessions spent much of the speech discussing the numbers behind current immigration policy, including separating families at the Southwest border.

“I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained the government for his purposes,” Sessions said.

“Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves. Consistent and fair application of the law is in itself a good and moral thing, and that protects the weak and protects the lawful.”

“The previous administration wouldn’t prosecute aliens if they came with children,” Sessions said.

“It was de-facto open borders if you came with children. The results were unsurprising. More and more illegal aliens started showing up at the border with children.”

Sessions laid out the numbers in the speech.

“In 2013, fewer than 15,000 family units were apprehended crossing our border illegally between ports of entry in dangerous areas of the country,” he said.

“Five years later, it was more than 75,000, a five-fold increase in five years. It didn’t even have to be their child that was brought, it could be anyone. You can imagine that this created a lot of danger.”

The U.S. has the “opportunity” to fix its broken immigration system now, Sessions said.

“I believe that’s it’s moral, right, just and decent that we have a lawful system of immigration,” he said. “The American people have been asking for it.”
