Pro-Israel Groups Expose Rand Paul 
as Blocking U.S. Aid to Israel
by Adam Kredo
{} ~ Top pro-Israel groups in America are mobilizing against Sen. Rand Paul (R., Ky.) for blocking the continuation of U.S. aid to Israel... the renewal of which comes at a critical time for the Jewish state as it continues to combat ongoing terror attacks from Hamas loyalists along its border. The American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC, the nation's foremost pro-Israel lobby group, has been purchasing advertisements on Facebook outing Paul as the primary Senate force blocking the reauthorization of the U.S.-Israel security pact, according to sources close to the effort. Other prominent pro-Israel organizations, such as Christians United for Israel, or CUFI, also have undertaken efforts to expose Paul's hold on U.S. security assistance to Israel, recently organizing an email blitz aimed at pressuring the isolationist senator to remove his hold on the critical funding bill. CUFI is said to have invested heavily in ads based in Kentucky to target the senator's constituents directly on the issue... What are you doing Rand Paul.
Corsi: dirty cop-Mueller Offered Deal, 
But 'I Will Not Lie'
by Sandy Fitzgerald
{} ~ Conservative writer Jerome Corsi, an associate of Roger Stone, has been offered a plea deal in connection with special counsel dirty cop-Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia collusion... according to several news outlets, but he is swearing he will not accept it. "Corsi tells me he's been offered plea deal on one count of perjury," NBC News Senior Producer Anna Schecter tweeted Monday, quoting him as telling her: "'They want me to say I willfully lied. I'm not going to agree that I lied. I did not. I will not lie to save my life. I'd rather sit in prison and rot for as long as these thugs want me to.'"Corsi also told CNN on Monday he will not accept a plea deal, commenting during a telephone interview "They can put me in prison the rest of my life. I am not going to sign a lie."He also said he does not know what will happen if he refuses the deal. Corsi also confirmed to CNN he has been offered a deal to plead guilty to one count of perjury. He's under investigation for being a possible intermediary between WikiLeaks and Stone. During an interview with One America News Network on Monday, Corsi proclaimed his innocence and accused late Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich of "stealing" emails from the DNC's computer network — not the Russians...
scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton on reports of 
tear gassing at border: 'This is wrong'
{} ~ Former Secretary of State scumbag/liar-Hillary Clintondecried the use of tear gas against migrants attempting to cross the border illegally on Sunday... "This is wrong," scumbag/liar-Clinton wrote Monday in a tweet that linked to a story about the incident. It included a photo of a mother struggling to pull her children to safety. The tweet from scumbag/liar-Clinton decrying the use of tear gas at the border comes days after she came under some criticism for a tweet that said Europe needs to "get a handle" on immigration as a means of thwarting right-wing populism. "I think Europe needs to get a handle on migration because that is what lit the flame of right-wing populism," scumbag/liar-Clinton told The Guardian in an interview published last Thursday... Yet she also forgot her admin she was in did the same thing 5 years ago. Was it right then? 
sick-Pulosi: Dems Will Prioritize Amnesty 
for ‘Patriotic’ Dreamers
by Tony Lee
{} ~ House Minority Leader sick-Nancy Pulosi (D-CA) said on Sunday that Democrats will prioritize amnesty for “patriotic” Dreamers... and “take the first step” toward a broader comprehensive amnesty bill in the next Congress. sick-Pulosi and Rep. John Sarbanes (D-MD) co-wrote a Sunday Washington Post op-ed in which they outlined their party’s priorities for the upcoming Congress, and they vowed to “pass the Dream Act to protect the patriotic young undocumented immigrants who came here as children, and take the first step toward comprehensive immigration reform.” They discussed plans to restore democracy by reforming ethics laws, reining in “dark money,” pushing more campaign finance reform, and strengthening voting rights legislation. sick-Pulosi and Sarbanes revealed that Democrats also intend to lower “health-care costs and out-of-control prices for prescription drugs,” raise the minimum wage, pass the Equality Act, and push more gun control. sick-Pulosi, who will win her party’s nomination later this week to be the next Speaker, has been working feverishly behind the scenes to lock up the 218 votes she needs on the House floor to get back her Speakership by championing issues—like amnesty—that are important to the party’s various constituencies... Aren't those some of what Trump action were but stopped by dems in congress?
Border Patrol’s Use Of Tear Gas Is Not Against 
The Chemical Weapons Convention  
by Jon Brown 
{} ~ Border Patrol’s deployment of non-lethal tear gas on an unruly mob Sunday is not against the 1993 Chemical Weapons Convention... that governs bio-chemical warfare, according to a review of the international laws. Several prominent media and political figures called the crowd-control measures excessive, and even implied that they violated international treaties. U.S. Customs and Border Protection released a statement Sunday, justifying the use of tear gas to subdue a group shown on video hurling rocks and other projectiles at Border Patrol agents. Border Patrol Chief Carla Provost claimed Monday on Fox News that migrants were assaulting law enforcement, throwing rocks and bottles. Domestic use of non-lethal irritant chemicals is addressed specifically in the Chemical Weapons Convention of 1993, which has been agreed to by 193 member states. There is nothing in the arms treaty that prohibits it. Tear gas is used routinely by police to disperse riots, like those that erupted in Ferguson, Missouri, following the shooting of Michael Brown in 2014. The FBI also used it in 1993 during the stand-off with the Branch Davidians in Waco, Texas...Prominent media and political figures are just lying.
The Feds Can't Prosecute Multicultural-Based Mutilation?
by Arnold Ahlert:  In a decision that expands the idea of states’ rights to the point of absurdity, U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman ruled that the female genital mutilation (FGM) law passed by Congress in 1996 was unconstitutional, thereby  dismissing charges against two Michigan doctors and six others accused of subjecting nine minor girls to a ritual best described as barbaric.

             The Federal Prohibition of Female Genital Mutilation Act was passed on Sept. 30, 1996 under the Commerce Clause of the Constitution. It states that “whoever knowingly circumcises, excises, or infibulates the whole or any part of the labia majora or labia minora or clitoris of another person who has not attained the age of 18 years shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both.” An exception is made for health or medical reasons, but Congress also made it clear that anyone who transports a person to or from the United States or its territories for the purpose subjecting that person to FGM can also be fined or imprisoned, or both.
               At the time, former Senator Harry Reid explained Congress’s rationale, stating, “There is no medical reason for this procedure. … It is used as a method to keep girls chaste and to ensure their virginity until marriage, and to ensure that after marriage they do not engage in extramarital sex.
               Friedman, a Ronald Reagan appointee, wasn’t buying it, and his ruling cited the Commerce Clause as the primary reason why. “That clause permits Congress to regulate activity that is commercial or economic in nature and that substantially affects interstate commerce either directly or as part of an interstate market that has such an effect,” Friedman wrote. “The government has not shown that either prong is met. … Nor has the government shown that FGM itself has any effect on interstate commerce or that a market exists for FGM beyond the mothers of the nine victims alleged in the third superseding indictment.”
               Friedman also questioned the federal government’s motive. “If there is an interstate market for FGM, why is this the first time the government has ever brought charges under this 1996 statute?” he asked.
               The judge is certainly correct regarding the latter assertion. The law wasn’t enforced once in 22 years prior to former Attorney General Jeff Sessions deciding to prosecute Dr. Jumana Nagarwala for performing the procedure, Dr. Fakhuruddin Attar for letting Nagarwala use his clinic to do so, Attar’s wife, Farida, for assisting Nagarwala in the examination room, and the parents for having their children’s genitals cut.
               Yet Friedman’s assertion that there was no market rings exceedingly hollow. Despite citing only nine specific victims in their case, prosecutors alleged that Nagarwala had performed the procedure on as many as 100 girls over a 12-year period.
               Moreover, five of the nine girls were transported from Minnesota and Illinois, both of which are among the 27 states that have enacted anti-FGM statutes of varying degrees. The other four girls were from Michigan, which passed its own anti-FGM statute last year because of this case, and while those accused could be prosecuted going forward, the law cannot be applied retroactively.
               And finally, the Centers for Disease Control estimate that up to 500,000 U.S. women and girls are at risk of being mutilated in the name of religion.
               In another line of attack, the feds asserted that FGM is an “illegal form of healthcare” that could thus be deregulated by Congress. Friedman countered that FGM is “a form of physical assault, not anything approaching a healthcare service.”
               The ruling should surprise no one attuned to a nation besieged by moral ambiguity and infatuated with multiculturalism. It is our moral ambiguity that abides the ultimate form of physical assault known as abortion, which is not only defined — and subsidized — as a “healthcare service,” but wholly immunized from states’ rights, courtesy of the Supreme Court’s 1973’s Roe v. Wade ruling. It is our infatuation with multiculturalism that abides the partial or full removal of a child’s clitoris under auspices of religious freedom. The defendants are all members of an Indian Muslim sect known as the Dawoodi Bohra, a group that insists FGM is a “benign” procedure in keeping with their religious rituals.
               Benign? Court records indicate some of the victims cried, screamed, and bled during the procedure, and one was given Valium ground in liquid Tylenol to calm her down. Records also show that two of the victims — both seven years of age — were tricked by their mothers into thinking they were being taken to Detroit for a girls’ weekend, not a life-altering surgical procedure.
               One of Nagarwala’s attorneys was extremely pleased by the ruling. Shannon Smith, who also believes she will win on appeal if the feds take the next step, declared, “Dr. Nagarwala is just a wonderful human being. She was always known as a doctor with an excellent reputation. The whole community was shocked when this happened. She’s always been known to be a stellar doctor, mother, [and] person.”
               Regardless, this “stellar person” remains under indictment for conspiracy for traveling with the intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct. The charge carries a maximum sentence of 30 years. She and the Attars are also facing obstruction of justice charges for allegedly telling members of their community not to cooperate with investigators. That charge carries a maximum sentence of 20 years. The case is slated for trial in April 2019.
               In the meantime, one might assume the passage of anti-FGM laws in the 23 states where none currently exist would be a slam dunk. Think again. In 2017, when Maine attempted to create several new felonies attached to the procedure, the ACLU of Maine opposed it as “nothing more than an attempt to single out behavior that is commonly attributed to certain religious and ethnic communities as different from other forms of abuse.”
               The bill ultimately failed despite the presence of 10,000 Somali refugees in that state, who come from a nation that embraced the procedure when it adopted Sharia Law as the nation’s legal code in 2009. The ACLU opposes FGM, but further insisted it preferred working with Maine’s immigrant communities to find “evidence-based solutions that will truly protect these vulnerable populations.
               Attorney Jerome Sabbota, who defended one of the women who abetted the procedure involving the Minnesota children, also defended her exoneration, saying, “These are deeply religious people, and a lot of people don’t understand that.”
               So were the Aztecs, who embraced human sacrifice, and Hindis, who, though it is outlawed, still engage in the practice of “sati,” which is the ritual burning of a widow on her husband’s funeral pyre.
               Dr. Phyllis Chesler, fellow at the Middle East Forum and Emerita Professor of Psychology and Women’s Studies insists that FGM “has no place in the West.”
               Unless Friedman’s ruling is overturned on appeal, and/or Congress fixes the law, it apparently does.  ~The Patriot Post

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
