Jury in Sanctuary City of San Francisco Finds Illegal Who Murdered Kate Steinle “Not Guilty”. What About Kate’s Right to Live?

The last bipartisan U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform wrangled with the hot topic of Illegal Immigration for six years. President Clinton appointed former congresswoman and Democratic icon Barbara Jordan as its chair. Jordan came from humble beginnings to become a lawyer and the first Southern black woman elected to the House of Representatives.

A DEMOCRAT, she was a leader in the civil rights movement, a professor of ethics, a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and a world-class orator (two of her speeches are considered among the greatest of the 20th century). Her appointment gave the commission instant credibility. According to Jordan, she believed her responsibility as the head of the commission was to restore credibility to the U.S. immigration system. On the issue of illegal immigration, Jordan was very clear and succinct:

Unlawful immigration is unacceptable. Those who should not be here will be required to leave.

I wonder what Rep. Jordan would think of her beloved Democratic Party, now that they have embraced and are welcoming the same illegality, which she was so clear about ?

And, how would she feel about the fact that innocent Americans, like Kate Steinle, are being murdered with impunity by these uninvited guests?

FoxNews.com reports that

Jose Ines Garcia Zarate was found not guilty Thursday of murdering Kate Steinle on Pier 14 in San Francisco in July 2015 in a case that sparked a heated national debate over illegal immigration and so-called sanctuary cities.

Zarate was acquitted of first and second degree murder and involuntary manslaughter. He also was found not guilty of assault with a semi-automatic weapon. He was found guilty of possessing a firearm by a felon. The jury had deliberated for six days.

Steinle was walking with her father and a family friend in July 2015 when she was shot, collapsing into her father’s arms. Zarate had been released from a San Francisco jail about three months before the shooting, despite a request by federal immigration authorities to detain him for deportation.

San Francisco is a sanctuary city, with local law enforcement officials barred from cooperating with federal immigration authorities. President Trump has threatened to withhold federal funding to cities with similar immigration policies, but a federal judge in California permanently blocked his executive order last week.

In a response to the verdict, Attorney General Jeff Sessions released a statement saying that despite California’s attempt at a murder conviction, Zarate was able to walk away with only a firearm possession conviction because he was not turned over by San Francisco to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

“When jurisdictions choose to return criminal aliens to the streets rather than turning them over to federal immigration authorities, they put the public’s safety at risk,” the statement said. “San Francisco’s decision to protect criminal aliens led to the preventable and heartbreaking death of Kate Steinle.”

“San Francisco’s policy of refusing to honor ICE detainers is a blatant threat to public safety and undermines the rule of law. This tragedy could have been prevented if San Francisco had turned the alien over to ICE, as we requested, instead of releasing him back onto the streets,” ICE Deputy Director Tom Homan reacted.

Upon leaving the courtroom, representatives from both sides spoke to reporters. Defense Attorney Matt Gonzalez offered his condolences to the Steinle family and said the outcome of the case did not make what happened in 2015 any less terrible. 

Public Defender Jeff Adachi also released a statement saying Zarate was “extremely relieved” by the outcome and that while Steinle’s death “was a horrible tragedy,” it was used as “political fodder for then candidate Donald Trump’s anti-immigration agenda.”

Adachi added, “Despite the unfairly politicized atmosphere surrounding this case, jurors focused on the evidence, which was clear and convincing, and rendered a just verdict.”

A spokesperson for the district attorney’s office said the verdict was not the one prosecutors were seeking but at the end of the day, the jury ultimately makes the decision. Prosecutors also said the Steinle family was “incredible” and that their hearts went out to them.

While Zarate’s immigration status brought the case into the national spotlight, jurors did not hear evidence about that, and it was not a factor in the trial.

After 12 days of testimony, dozens of witnesses and two days of closing arguments, the jury had to decide whether Steinle’s death was the result of an act of murder or a tragic accident.

Reporters in the room said the jurors looked very somber as they entered. When the judge was handed the verdict, the courtroom was completely silent. During the reading of the not guilty verdict of involuntary manslaughter, the defense team nodded in approval but didn’t show any emotion. Zarate sat stoically in his seat.

Earlier in the day, the bailiff and court clerk were seen entering the jury room with a small yellow evidence bag before retreating with it a few minutes later. 

A source inside the courtroom confirmed that the jury asked to see the gun used to shoot Steinle. Zarate and his defense team maintained the argument that the suspect found the stolen weapon on the pier that day and it “just fired.”

The gun belonged to a federal Bureau of Land Management ranger and was stolen from his parked car a week earlier.

The bullet ricocheted on the pier’s concrete walkway before it struck Steinle, killing her. Zarate has admitted to shooting Steinle, but says it was an accident.

However, the prosecution painted a very different picture, telling jurors that Zarate deliberately shot the gun towards Steinle while “playing his own secret version of Russian roulette.”

Following Steinle’s death, Congress took action to pass new legislation called Kate’s Law. The law — passed by the House of Representatives in June — increases the penalties for deported aliens who try to return to the United States and are caught.

Unbelievable.

An individual who has entered our Sovereign Nation illegally and murdered one of our citizens is found “innocent” in a city which ignores the laws of our land and harbors these fugitives, giving them the ability to prey upon American Citizens.

Have you noticed that the Liberal Main Stream Media always leave out the word “illegal” to describe these lawbreakers, here in our Sovereign Nation without our permission, whom these Democratic Mayors of “Sanctuary Cities” are so hell-bent on protecting?

These Democrats are also ignoring that while these “guests” (as Arizona’s Famous Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s successor has called them) are in our country illegally, they are committing other crimes as well…including MURDER.

On April 24, 2010, I wrote a Blog titled simply, “For Mr. Krentz”, detailing the murder of Arizona Rancher Robert Krentz by an illegal alien…

Police say Robert Krentz, whose family has been ranching in southern Arizona since 1907, was gunned down early Saturday morning, March 27th, 2010, by an illegal immigrant while out on his ATV tending to fences and water lines on the family’s 34,000-acre cattle ranch.

Reached by phone early Tuesday at his family’s ranch, Andy Krentz, Krentz’s oldest son, said his father was a churchgoing man who routinely went out of his way to help those in need.

“My father was a very good family man,” Krentz told FoxNews.com. “He supported his kids, supported his family. He went out of his way to help anybody we could without regarding to who they were.  It didn’t matter who they were.”

Sue Krentz, Krentz’s wife, said she was “pretty overwhelmed” by her husband’s death, which coincided with her parents’ deteriorating health.

“This is icing on the cake,” Krentz said.

On May 14, 2014, on the occasion of then-President Barack Hussein Obama releasing 36,000 illegal aliens, who had committed additional crimes on our shores, back in to the populace, I posted the following information…

Per usillegalaliens.com,

  • In Los Angeles, 95% of some 1,500 outstanding warrants for homicides are for illegal aliens. About 67% of the 17,000 outstanding fugitive felony warrants are for illegal aliens.

  • There are currently over 400,000 unaccounted for illegal alien criminals with outstanding deportation orders. At least one-fourth of these are hard-core criminals.

  • 80,000 to 100,000 illegal aliens who have been convicted of serious crimes are walking the streets. Based on studies they will commit an average of 13 serious crimes per perpetrator.

  • Illegal aliens are involved in criminal activities at a rate that is 2-5 times their representative proportion of the population.

  • In 1980, our Federal and state facilities held fewer than 9,000 criminal aliens but at the end of 2003, approximately 267,000 illegal aliens were incarcerated in U.S. correctional facilities at a cost of about $6.8 billion per year.

  • At least 4.5 million pounds of cocaine with a street value of at least $72 billion is smuggled across the southern border every year. ..

  • 56% of illegal aliens charged with a reentry offense had previously been convicted on at least 5 prior occasions.

  • Illegal aliens charged with unlawful reentry had the most extensive criminal histories. 90% had been previously arrested. Of those with a prior arrest, 50% had been arrested for violent or drug-related felonies.

  • Illegal aliens commit between 700,000 to 1,289,000 or more crimes per year.

  • Illegal aliens commit at least 2,158 murders each year – a number that represents three times greater participation than their proportion of the population.

  • Illegal alien sexual predators commit an estimated 130,909 sexual crimes each year.

  • There may be as many as 240,000 illegal alien sex offenders circulating throughout America. Based on studies, they will commit an average of 8 sex crimes per perpetrator before being caught.

  • Nearly 63% of illegal alien sex offenders had been deported on another offense prior to committing the sex crime.

  • Only 2% of the illegal alien sex offenders in one study had no history of criminal behavior, beyond crossing the border illegally.

  • In Operation Predator, ICE arrested and deported 6,085 illegal alien pedophiles. Some studies suggest each pedophile molests average of 148 children. If so, that could be as many as 900,580 victims.

  • Nobody knows how big the Sex Slave problem is but it is enormous.

  • The very brutal MS-13 gang has over 15,000 members and associates in at least 115 different cliques in 33 states.

  • The overall financial impact of illegal alien crimes is estimated at between $14.4 and $81 billion or more per year. Factor in the crime as a result of the cocaine and other drugs being smuggled in and the number may reach $150 billion per year.

That was in 2014. Can you imagine how the numbers have grown exponentially?

And, the kicker is, the clownish excuses for city officials running these “Sanctuary Cities” are not only harboring fugitives, they are allowing them to vote!

Voting is an American Constitutional Right of self-determination.

Non-citizens have no such right.

I gave the following answer to a comment made by “Benito”, who submitted a rather lengthy comment to a blog I wrote about Illegal Immigration on May 19, 2010.

Benito, I approved your comment to ask you a few questions. First, you write very well. Next, a few questions. What part of the word “illegal” do you not understand? What makes the current influx of illegal immigrants exempt from the rules and regulations that every other generation of immigrants to this country had to abide by in order to become legal citizens of the greatest nation in the world? By being here illegally, you are not entitled to the same rights as natural-born or naturalized American citizens. You are no better than someone who breaks into someone’s home, does their dishes, cuts their yard, cleans their house, and then helps themselves to their food and drives their car without asking. This is in no way a human rights issue. Freedom is God-given. And with freedom comes responsibility. With citizenship comes responsibility, like paying taxes and making your own way. Illegal immigration reminds me of the amorous boyfriend who wants everything a young woman will give him, but will leave her at the first mention of marriage. I wish you no ill, amigo, but understand this: This is not a civil rights issue. Illegals do not have the same rights as American Citizens. With our rights, come the responsibilities of being an American citizen. The Mexican flag, by protocol, will always be flown in a subordinate position to the American Flag in this country. And, the American Dialect of the English language is the language spoken in this country.

Vaya con Dios.

Our Federal Taxes are being used to pay “Sanctuary Cities” to ignore our laws and house murderers, who, if our Immigration Laws were being properly enforced, would not be here killing innocent Americans. Compassion is one thing. Sanctuary Cities are an exercise in blatant, law-breaking stupidity.

All Government Grants to these cities, who are breaking the law, must be stopped now.

I understand that people want a better life for themselves and their children. We are all immigrants in this land, except for American Indians, and they got here by crossing the Bering Straight. But there is a huge difference between immigrating here legally and sneaking in illegally, between assimilating into an existing culture, and insisting on replacing a country’s existing culture with that of the country you left.

I’m all for assisting anyone in becoming a legal citizen of the United States, if that is their wish. But, it must be done the right way, and they must accept responsibility for their illegal entry, show a willingness to learn our language, and embrace our American way of life, including respecting the American Flag.

Criminals are criminals, whether they are here legally or illegally.

They deserve no sanctuary.

Neither Kate Steinle nor Mr. Krentz deserved to be murdered by barbarians who had already broken our laws once by trespassing into our Sovereign Nation.

OUR FOUNDERS ESTABLISHED AMERICA AS ONE NATION UNDER GOD, INDIVISIBLE.

NOT THE TOWER OF BABEL OR SOME THIRD WORLD LAWLESS HELLHOLE WHERE LAWLESSNESS RULES.

Build the wall, Secure our borders. Enforce the existing anti-illegal immigration laws.

Kate Steinle and the other American Citizens who have been killed by illegal immigrants deserve no less.

Until He Comes,

Jessica Chambers Trial Ends in Mistrial. Suspect Still Faces Another Murder Trial in Louisiana. Will Justice Be Served?

jessica-chambers-quinton-tellis

At his best, man is the noblest of all animals; separated from law and justice he is the worst. – Aristotle

The Jackson (MS) Clarion-Ledger reported yesterday that

A mistrial was declared Monday in the murder case surrounding the 2014 burning death of 19-year-old Jessica Chambers after the jury came back with a not guilty verdict before deciding they were hopelessly deadlocked. Quinton Tellis, the man accused of burning the Panola County resident to death, will likely face a new trial following the decision, continuing what has been an emotional roller coaster for everyone involved for almost three years.

Tellis, 29, who pleaded not guilty to capital murder in the Dec. 6, 2014, burning death of Chambers, did not take the stand during the trial that started Oct. 9. He could have faced life in prison without parole if convicted.

Circuit Judge Gerald Chatham declared a mistrial Monday afternoon. District Attorney John Champion said the prosecution will try the case again, but at this point a timeframe is not clear, nor is from where the jury will be drawn. The jury in this trial was drawn from Pike County after extensive media coverage of the case.

Meanwhile, Chambers’ family filled up the center rows of the courtroom, where they have been every day since the case began. Family and friends of Tellis filled the right side.

The deadlock came from a misunderstanding of the jury instructions, officials said. The instructions said that a guilty verdict had to be unanimous, but didn’t directly say that about a not guilty verdict. It appeared the jury thought since they couldn’t unanimously decide that Tellis was guilty, that made him not guilty.

“You take the range of emotions that occurred in that short amount of time,” Champion said. “We felt like it was probably a misinterpretation of a jury instruction, so we added to one of the jury instructions to make it more simplistic.”

The emotional toll was felt strongly by both sides. 

“I can’t say what Quinton felt but the moment you’re in the midst of a week trial and the jury comes back and says, ‘We find the defendant not guilty,’ and there’s a great sense of relief there,” said defense attorney Alton Peterson. “Then, you find out that’s not valid and is the result of confusion in the jury box. I don’t know how to describe that.”

Among Judge Gerald Chatham, prosecutors Champion and Jay Hale, and defense attorneys Peterson and Darla Palmer, there are more than 100 years of legal experience. They’d never seen anything like a jury that tried to return a verdict twice before deadlocking.

The prosecution felt throughout the week that they had a strong case even in the face of the fact that first responders said that Chambers told them someone named Eric set her on fire. Their last two witnesses, Mississippi Bureau of Investigations Detective Tim Douglas and U.S. Attorney’s office Intelligence Analyst Paul Rowlett, were able to add visuals to the prosecution’s presentation that turned the tide in the opinion of many watching the case. 

Jury deliberations began around 4 p.m. Sunday and continued until about 8:30 p.m. in the capital murder trial. The jury reconvened at 9 a.m. Monday to continue deliberations. The court was told the jury came up with the verdict around 1:30 p.m. after nearly eight hours of deliberations.

However, when Chatham brought the jury back into court and asked them if they all agreed with the decision, one juror said he did not. The judge then went into chambers with the attorneys. A few minutes later, the judge came back to court and read the specific jury instruction that states all 12 members must be unanimous in the verdict. Then the jury was sent back to continue deliberations at 1:50 p.m. 

After that, the jury came back saying they had reached a verdict. However, the decision wasn’t unanimous. The verdict they reached was not guilty but after Chatham polled the jurors, it was clear the decision was split. The jury was sent back again to continue deliberations around 2:15 p.m. or so.

They came back with the deadlock around 4 p.m. 

The Chambers family quickly exited the courtroom, without comment.

Rebecca Tellis, Quinton Tellis’ mother, said she’s just happy he wasn’t convicted and that she’s leaning on her faith.

“They won’t let me talk to him, but my son is fine. He’s fine I could see it in his eyes. If he’s fine, I’m fine,” she said. “No matter what’s going on, God’s still going to have the say so at the last end.”

Rebecca Tellis also had a message for Chambers’ family. She said she still wants Jessica’s killer found and brought to justice.

“My heart goes out for them, too,” she said. “I don’t want my son guilty for a crime I know he didn’t do. But my heart goes out to them.”

At this point it’s unclear if Tellis goes back to Louisiana, where he’s serving time for a conviction of using the credit cards of a woman in whose death he also faces murder charges. Authorities said it’s too early to know what the timeline will look like between Mississippi and Louisiana as the two cases move forward.

So, justice has been delayed.

“Confusion in the jury box”, Huh?

Forgive my bluntness, but I am betting that it was purposeful confusion and that the deadlock was due to a disagreement along racial lines.

As I wrote recently, Mississippi has had a problem for several years now with an influx of gangs from up north, such as the Gangster Disciples, coming into both the Metropolitan Areas, such as Jackson, and the smaller cities, such as Clarksdale.

Just as it is with every other area that these parasites infest, crime begins to take over, ranging from drug dealing to violent crimes like the murder of Jessica Chambers.

Poor young Jessica, from all reports, was a known Marijuana dealer.

However, that was no excuse for the horrible tortuous death that she endured at the hands of a monster.

From what we know about Tellis, the career criminal accused of her murder, this is not his first rodeo.

He still faces a separate trial in Louisiana for murder, as well, where he is already presently serving time.

Per the local Fox Affiliate in Memphis in a story posted on February 25, 2016…

Monroe police told FOX13 Tellis is the only suspect in the killing of Ming-Chen Hsiao, an exchange student at the University of Louisiana Monroe.

On the school’s campus, friends called the 34-year-old murder victim ‘Mandy’ for short.  She had just graduated with a master’s in education and was seeking employment.

“She was very active on campus. She was very vocal in her beliefs and she would let people know about that. She enjoyed life,” a university administrator told FOX13.

“The people who know her say she was a nice person,” student Darrius Jones added. “She was a sweet girl. She never really bothered anybody.”

When police found her stabbed to death in July, investigators caught Quinton Tellis with her debit card. Witnesses had placed him at her apartment just days before her murder.

“We can place him at the apartment shortly before the murder. And with the victim, a day or two before the murder,” Detective Duane Cookson of the Monroe Police Department said.

Louisiana investigators said Mandy rode her bike and was friendly to the local children. One of the kids was the seven-year-old stepson of Quinton Tellis.

“Mandy would ride up and down the street. She invited the children in to get some candy one time, and he became acquainted with in that manner,” Detective Cookson said.

Tellis is a suspect in the murder, but he not charged because police need more physical evidence.

“It’s a circumstantial evidence case, and Mississippi I understand has DNA and more physical evidence,” Veteran criminal prosecutor Neil Johnson told FOX13.

Batesville District Attorney John Champion told FOX13 he would not deny what Johnson said about DNA.

Panola County will have to wait until after Tellis’ trial in May before they can extradite him back to Mississippi.  The Police Chief told FOX13 if Tellis is convicted in either state, he could face life in prison.

“Quinten Tellis will not harm to any citizen outside of prison again,” Monroe Police Chief Quinten Holmes.

Since then, Tellis was charged with that young girls murder, also, as referred to earlier in this post.

I hope that trial procedes swiftly and smoothly in the case of “Mandy” and I hope that Mississippi retries Tellis for the murder of Jessica, as well.

Animals like this “suspected” murderer are not just a burden on society, they are a plague upon it.

Neither of these young women deserved the fate bestowed upon them.

It remains up to the citizens of Louisiana and Mississippi, if they decide on a retrial, to make sure that justice is served.

Until He Comes,

Of Jessica Chambers, NFL Protests, and the Dissolving Family Unit – A KJ Op Ed

jessica-chambers-1 (2)

It is no secret to anyone who has read my posts for a while that I was originally born in Memphis, Tennessee and current reside in Northwest Mississippi, right across the state line.

The most talked about murder case down here in years in finally coming to trial.

FoxNews.com reports that…

Jury selection began Monday in the trial of a man accused of dousing a 19-year-old former high school cheerleader with a flammable liquid, setting her ablaze and leaving her to die along a north Mississippi back road. 
 
Quinton Tellis, 29, has been charged with the murder of Jessica Chambers on Dec. 6, 2014, and faces life in prison without parole if convicted. Tellis has pleaded not guilty.

Opening arguments and testimony are expected to begin Tuesday morning, with prosecutors expecting to call more than 40 witnesses in a trial that could last up to two weeks, the Commercial-Appeal reported. 

Firefighters in Courtland, Miss., found Chambers beside her burning car on a remote road near a tree farm. Chambers was quickly taken to a Memphis hospital, about 60 miles to the north, with burns over 98 percent of her body. She died hours later.

District Attorney John Champion of Panola County said that he believed it was a “personal crime” as Tellis and Chambers knew each other, and not related to drug or gang activity, even though 17 suspected gang members were arrested as a result of the investigation. The prosecutor has not revealed to reporters what Chambers told firefighters when they found her.

Investigators were stymied early on because they received no information from “street sources,” leading them to theorize that the killing was committed by one person who told no one what happened, Champion had said.

Authorities have said about 20,000 telephone numbers were analyzed as part of the investigation, more than 150 people were questioned and investigators traveled to Iowa and Chattanooga, Tenn.

Relatives have described Chambers as friendly and outgoing. She had been a cheerleader and softball player at South Panola High School.

Chambers’ mother, Lisa, has said her daughter liked to smile and playfully stick out her tongue at people. She was trusting of others, making her mother wonder if her outgoing personality had gotten her into trouble.

“She didn’t think anybody could harm her or would want to,” Lisa Chambers has said.

But as the trial approached, Lisa Chambers declined to discuss the case. She has told reporters she spoke with her daughter by phone about an hour before she was found.

When Tellis was indicted, Champion said, investigators worked to figure out where the victim was between 6:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. the day she was burned and they had “absolutely filled that hour in.” The 19-year-old was found shortly after 8 p.m. that night.

Tellis has prior convictions for burglary and fleeing police. He was released from prison in October 2014 — two months before Chambers’ killing.

Tellis faces another murder indictment in Louisiana, where he’s accused in the torture death of Meing-Chen Hsiao, a 34-year-old Taiwanese graduate student at the University of Louisiana at Monroe. That indictment alleges that Tellis probably stabbed Hsiao more than 30 times in her face and body with a knife to get her to reveal her debit card’s PIN number before killing her on July 29, 2015. He was extradited to Mississippi from Louisiana in June after pleading guilty to fraudulent use of Hsiao’s card.

Area resident Beth Brasher, 40, said she knows Tellis and says he “comes from a good family.” Asked about the Chambers case, she said she believes Tellis is wrongly accused, but acknowledged the crime “tore up” the community.

“That girl died a horrible, horrendous death that she didn’t deserve,” Brasher said.

As I write this post, the jury has now been seated.

I had a stepson who played football for one of the local high school teams down here. Every year they played South Panola and every year they got run off the field. It’s not that the team my stepson played on was a bad team. They weren’t. It was just that South Panola was always a very good team.

What I can remember about them was the fact that they were huge. They all appeared to be young black men in their 20s and their dominance on the field reminded me of the old Grambling State Tiger Football Games that I used to watch at 10:30 p.m. on Saturday nights on the local NBC Affiliate, WMCTV 5, as a kid in the 70s, before Saturday Night Live took over that time slot.

I absolutely loved the halftime shows.

But, I digress…

I was thinking about poor young Jessica and the worthless waste of oxygen who took her life and the monstrous way in which he did it and I thought about another story which I have written several posts about recently.

As you no doubt noticed, Fox News reported that 17 suspected gang members were questioned during the murder investigation.

Gangs are big in that area, with some of them even sending “scouts” into the middle schools up where I live, to recruit young thug wannabes.

Gangs have become so successful around the country due to the dissolution of the Black Family Unit.

And that, boys and girls, is a stone cold fact.

As I wrote last week,

“Back in July of 2013, CNN Reporter Don Lemon (who happens to be black) caught a bunch of grief for saying,

Just because you can have a baby, it doesn’t mean you should. Especially without planning for one or getting married first. More than 72 percent of children in the African-American community are born out of wedlock. That means absent fathers. And the studies show that lack of a male role model is an express train right to prison and the cycle continues.

Politifact.com researched the statement and found out that Lemon was correct. As of the 2010 Census, Black American Babies were experiencing a 73% illegitimacy rate.

If the NFL and its players, Modern American Liberals, both black and white, Democrat and Republican, in Municipal, State, and National Leadership Positions, would focus their angst and “concern” on the society-altering, continuing dissolution of the Black Family Unit and work instead toward the restoration of the Black Family Unit, instead of attempting to blame our city’s police officers for the violence in our streets, perhaps the stifling defeatism of the cycle of Generational Poverty and Crime, and the violence it brings, would eventually be a thing of the past, or greatly diminished, anyway.

Then, I wouldn’t be awakened every morning, by the Local News in Memphis, to stories about Black Americans killing each other, or mobs of Black Teenagers beating up innocent people, such as seen in the story from Denver featured earlier in this post.

And American Families could actually watch an enjoyable Sunday Afternoon of professional football again, without the players’ public displays of their private political ideology spoiling it for everybody.

But, then again…that would make too much sense.

And, if someone would have provided a male role model in that young murder’s life, pretty young Jessica Chambers might still be alive.

Actions have consequences.

Whether it be having a baby out of wedlock just because you can,

Disrespecting our flag, our nation, and the people who pay you money to play a game,

or

Dousing a beautiful young woman in gasoline and lighter fluid and setting her ablaze,

It all has to do with being “raised in the way in which you should go”.

If the National Football League Players really want to “kneel in solidarity with the community”, they need to go kneel in the middle of Clarksdale, Mississippi…or Inner City Chicago…or North and South Memphis.

Kneeling in the middle of beautiful football Arenas on national television when you are supposed to be doing your job is not accomplishing anything, except lost revenue.

But, then again, it is a lot easier than actually trying to make a difference.

Jessica Chambers would agree. If she could.

Until He Comes,

KJ

 

 

 

 

Why Congress MUST Pass Kate’s Law and the No Sanctuary for Criminals Act

untitled (153)

The last bipartisan U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform wrangled with the hot topic of Illegal Immigration for six years. President Clinton appointed former congresswoman and Democratic icon Barbara Jordan as its chair. Jordan came from humble beginnings to become a lawyer and the first Southern black woman elected to the House of Representatives. A DEMOCRAT, she was a leader in the civil rights movement, a professor of ethics, a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and a world-class orator (two of her speeches are considered among the greatest of the 20th century). Her appointment gave the commission instant credibility. According to Jordan, she believed her responsibility as the head of the commission was to restore credibility to the U.S. immigration system. On the issue of illegal immigration, Jordan was very clear and succinct:

Unlawful immigration is unacceptable. Those who should not be here will be required to leave.

I wonder what Rep. Jordan would think of her beloved Democratic Party, now that they have embraced and are welcoming the same illegality, which she was so clear about ?

And, how would she feel about the fact that innocent Americans are being murdered by these uninvited guests?

I believe that she would stand with our current President.

The Washington Times reported yesterday that

Surrounded by family members of people killed by illegal immigrants, President Trump urged Congress on Wednesday to pass two bills that would crack down on illegal-immigrant criminals and sanctuary cities.

Championing the victims of illegal-immigrant crime was a hallmark of Mr. Trump’s presidential run, and he vowed Wednesday follow through by quickly signing the bills when they reach his desk.

“You lost the people that you love because our government refused to enforce our nation’s immigration laws and that’s including the existing immigration laws,” he said at the roundtable meeting in the White House.

More than a dozen victims joined Mr. Trump to push the legislation, which faces opposition from Democrats.

“For years the pundits, journalists, politicians in Washington refused to hear your voices, but on Election Day 2016 your voices were heard all across the entire world. No one died in vain I can tell you that,” said the president.

Julie Golvach, whose 25-year-old son Spencer was gunned down in 2015 by an illegal immigrant during a mass shooting, demanded action.

“I want some action. If this was done years ago, my son would still be here,” said Mrs. Golvach, one of several family members who told their story at the meeting with the president.

Her son, who owned a guitar shop in Houston, was shot in the head as he sat in his car at a traffic light. The shooter, Victor Reyes, was a Mexican illegal immigrant who had been deported four times and had a criminal rap sheet stretching back 15 years.

“We lost everything. He was my only child,” she said, her voice cracking. “I want some action so nobody else has to go through the loss that we feel.”

Mr. Trump called on all members of Congress to “honor grieving American families by passing these life-saving measures.”

One of the bills scheduled for a vote this week is Kate’s Law, named after Kate Steinle, who was fatally shot in San Francisco while walking along the waterfront with her father in July 2015.

Her slaying came just days after Mr. Trump announced his presidential campaign, and he quickly seized on her death as a symbol of the problems in U.S. immigration policy.

Kate’s Law would impose strict penalties on illegal immigrant criminals who return to the U.S. after deportation.

The other bill is the No Sanctuary for Criminals Act, which would penalize jurisdictions that do not cooperate with federal immigration enforcement.

“It’s time to support our police to protect our families and to save American lives and also to start getting smart,” Mr. Trump said.

The White House also brought acting ICE Director Thomas D. Homan to advocate for the two bills at a briefing with reporters.

Mr. Homan gave an impassioned pitch, fighting back tears as he recalled finding a dead 5-year-old boy in the back of a tractor trailer smuggling in illegal immigrants. The boy who died of suffocation in his father’s arms could have been spared under the pending legislation, he said.

“How do you think that 5-year-old felt his last 10 minutes of his life looking at his father that couldn’t help him, or his father looking at his child that’s dying in his arms [and] can’t help him?” he said. “These organizations are callous.”

Pressed by reporters claiming that enforcing immigration laws was “cold,” could break up families, or spread fear, Mr. Homan defended ICE’s mission.

“People think I’m standing up here and I’m the devil. Let me make something clear: Why am I so strong about this? I’ve been doing 33 years,” he said. “If you saw what I saw the last 33 years, I wouldn’t get half the bad media that we get.”

Have you noticed that the Liberal Main Stream Media always leave out the word “illegal” to describe these lawbreakers, here in our Sovereign Nation without our permission, whom these Democratic Mayors of “Sanctuary Cities” are so hell-bent on protecting?

These Democrats are also ignoring that while these “guests” (as Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s successor has called them) are in our country illegally, they are committing other crimes as well…including MURDER.

On April 24, 2010, I wrote a Blog titled simply, “For Mr. Krentz”, detailing the murder of Arizona Rancher Robert Krentz by an illegal alien…

Police say Robert Krentz, whose family has been ranching in southern Arizona since 1907, was gunned down early Saturday morning, March 27th, 2010, by an illegal immigrant while out on his ATV tending to fences and water lines on the family’s 34,000-acre cattle ranch.

Reached by phone early Tuesday at his family’s ranch, Andy Krentz, Krentz’s oldest son, said his father was a churchgoing man who routinely went out of his way to help those in need.

“My father was a very good family man,” Krentz told FoxNews.com. “He supported his kids, supported his family. He went out of his way to help anybody we could without regarding to who they were.  It didn’t matter who they were.”

Sue Krentz, Krentz’s wife, said she was “pretty overwhelmed” by her husband’s death, which coincided with her parents’ deteriorating health.

“This is icing on the cake,” Krentz said.

On May 14, 2014, on the occasion of President Barack Hussein Obama releasing 36,000 illegal aliens, who had committed additional crimes on our shores, back in to the populace, I posted the following information…

Per usillegalaliens.com,

  • In Los Angeles, 95% of some 1,500 outstanding warrants for homicides are for illegal aliens. About 67% of the 17,000 outstanding fugitive felony warrants are for illegal aliens.

  • There are currently over 400,000 unaccounted for illegal alien criminals with outstanding deportation orders. At least one fourth of these are hard core criminals.

  • 80,000 to 100,000 illegal aliens who have been convicted of serious crimes are walking the streets. Based on studies they will commit an average of 13 serious crimes per perpetrator.

  • Illegal aliens are involved in criminal activities at a rate that is 2-5 times their representative proportion of the population.

  • In 1980, our Federal and state facilities held fewer than 9,000 criminal aliens but at the end of 2003, approximately 267,000 illegal aliens were incarcerated in U.S. correctional facilities at a cost of about $6.8 billion per year.

  • At least 4.5 million pounds of cocaine with a street value of at least $72 billion is smuggled across the southern border every year. ..

  • 56% of illegal aliens charged with a reentry offense had previously been convicted on at least 5 prior occasions.

  • Illegal aliens charged with unlawful reentry had the most extensive criminal histories. 90% had been previously arrested. Of those with a prior arrest, 50% had been arrested for violent or drug-related felonies.

  • Illegal aliens commit between 700,000 to 1,289,000 or more crimes per year.

  • Illegal aliens commit at least 2,158 murders each year – a number that represents three times greater participation than their proportion of the population.

  • Illegal alien sexual predators commit an estimated 130,909 sexual crimes each year.

  • There may be as many as 240,000 illegal alien sex offenders circulating throughout America. Based on studies, they will commit an average of 8 sex crimes per perpetrator before being caught.

  • Nearly 63% of illegal alien sex offenders had been deported on another offense prior to committing the sex crime.

  • Only 2% of the illegal alien sex offenders in one study had no history of criminal behavior, beyond crossing the border illegally.

  • In Operation Predator, ICE arrested and deported 6,085 illegal alien pedophiles. Some studies suggest each pedophile molests average of 148 children. If so, that could be as many as 900,580 victims.

  • Nobody knows how big the Sex Slave problem is but it is enormous.

  • The very brutal MS-13 gang has over 15,000 members and associates in at least 115 different cliques in 33 states.

  • The overall financial impact of illegal alien crimes is estimated at between $14.4 and $81 billion or more per year. Factor in the crime as a result of the cocaine and other drugs being smuggled in and the number may reach $150 billion per year.

That was in 2014. Can you imagine how the numbers have grown exponentially?

And, the kicker is, the clownish excuses for city officials running these “Sanctuary Cities” are not only harboring fugitives, they are allowing them to vote!

Voting is an American Constitutional Right of self-determination.

Non-citizens have no such right.

I gave the following answer to a comment made by “Benito”, who submitted a rather lengthy comment to a blog I wrote about Illegal Immigration on May 19, 2010.

Benito, I approved your comment to ask you a few questions. First, you write very well. Next, a few questions. What part of the word “illegal” do you not understand? What makes the current influx of illegal immigrants exempt from the rules and regulations that every other generation of immigrants to this country had to abide by in order to become legal citizens of the greatest nation in the world? By being here illegally, you are not entitled to the same rights as natural-born or naturalized American citizens. You are no better than someone who breaks into someone’s home, does their dishes, cuts their yard, cleans their house, and then helps themselves to their food and drives their car without asking. This is in no way a human rights issue. Freedom is God-given. And with freedom comes responsibility. With citizenship comes responsibility, like paying taxes and making your own way. Illegal immigration reminds me of the amorous boyfriend who wants everything a young woman will give him, but will leave her at the first mention of marriage. I wish you no ill, amigo, but understand this: This is not a civil rights issue. Illegals do not have the same rights as American Citizens. With our rights, come the responsibilities of being an American citizen. The Mexican flag, by protocol, will always be flown in a subordinate position to the American Flag in this country. And, the American Dialect of the English language is the language spoken in this country.

Vaya con Dios.

Criminals are criminals, whether they are here legally or illegally.

They deserve no sanctuary.

Neither Kate Steinle nor Mr. Krentz deserved to be murdered by barbarians who had already broken our laws once by trespassing into our Sovereign Nation.

OUR FOUNDERS ESTABLISHED AMERICA AS ONE NATION UNDER GOD, INDIVISIBLE.

NOT THE TOWER OF BABEL OR SOME THIRD WORLD LAWLESS HELLHOLE WHERE LAWLESSNESS RULES.

Pass the laws.

Protect America and her citizens.

CONGRESS…DO YOUR JOB.

The Poltical/Cultural War against America’s Law Enforcement Officers Has Claimed Another Victim

th (25)Another one of America’s Law Enforcement Officers has reached “The End of Watch”, savagely murdered by a coward, who shot him from behind.

USA Today reports that

Harris County authorities in Texas have a man in custody in Friday’s shooting death of a sheriff’s deputy, Sheriff Ron Hickman said at a press conference Saturday. The suspect, Shannon J. Miles, has a previous criminal history including resisting arrest and disorderly conduct with a firearm. He is being charged with capital murder.

Hickman says the shooting was “unprovoked” and the department is still looking for a motive for the “cold-blooded assassination” of the officer at a Houston-area gas station.

Deputy Darren Goforth, 47, was fatally shot in the back late Friday while filling his patrol car in northwest Harris County. Hickman said ballistics tests showed a match between the weapon used to kill Goforth and a weapon in Miles’ possession.

Hickman, in discussing the shooting with reporters at an earlier press conference, condemned the “very dangerous national rhetoric” about police officers that he said was out of control.

Officials said Miles is the individual captured on surveillance video. He was apprehended, Hickman said, by locating the red Ford pick-up scene on the surveillance video, which was parked near where Miles resided.
On the video, the dark-skinned man is shown approaching Goforth from behind and shooting him several times in the back. The shooter continued to fire even after the officer had fallen to the ground. 

Hickman said Goforth was apparently singled out only because he was wearing the uniform of a law enforcement officer. The sheriff made it clear he felt the shooting was tied to a national backlash over several recent killings of unarmed black people by police officers.

“When rhetoric ramps up to the point where cold-blooded assassination has happened, this rhetoric has gotten out of control,” he said. “We heard ‘black lives matter.’ All lives matter. Well, cops’ lives matter too, so why don’t we drop the qualifier and say ‘lives matter’ and take that to the bank.”

Black Lives Matter is a decentralized national movement that gained momentum after recent shootings by police officers.

His remarks echoed comments in the same new conference by Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson, who said the criticism of police had gotten out of hand.

“It is time for the silent majority in this country to support law enforcement,” she told reporters at a news conference. “There are a few bad apples in every profession, that does not mean there should be open warfare on law enforcement.” 
 
Goforth was a 10-year veteran with the sheriff’s office, working the west district patrol division. He leaves behind a wife and two children.

The Great American Broadcaster, the late Paul Harvey, was the son of a policeman who died in the line of duty. He wrote the following tribute for one of his daily updates…

“What is a policeman?

“A policeman is a composite of what all men are, I guess, a mingling of saint and sinner, dust and deity. What that really means is that they are exceptional, they are unusual. They are not commonplace. Buried under the froth is the fact, the fact is that less than one half of one percent of policeman misfit that uniform, and that is a better average than you’d find among clergymen.

“He of all men is at once the most needed, and the most wanted, a strangely nameless creature who is sir to his face and pig or worse behind his back. He must be such a diplomat that he can settle differences between individuals so that each will think he won, but, if a policeman is neat, he’s conceited, if he’s careless he’s a bum, if he’s pleasant, he’s a flirt, if he’s not, he’s a grouch.

“He must make instant decisions that would require months for a lawyer but if he hurries he’s careless, if he’s deliberate, he’s lazy. He must be first to an accident, infallible with diagnoses. He must be able to start breathing, stop bleeding, tie splints and above all, be sure the victim goes home without a limp.

“The police officer must know every gun, draw on the run and hit where it doesn’t hurt.

“He must be able to whip two men twice his size and half his age without damaging his uniform, and without being brutal. If you hit him he’s a coward, if he hits you, he’s a bully. The policeman from a single human hair must be able to describe the crime, the weapon the criminal, and tell you where the criminal is hiding but, if he catches the criminal he’s lucky, if he doesn’t he’s a dunce.

“He runs files and writes reports until his eyes ache to build a case against some felon who will get dealt out by some shameless shamus. The policeman must be a minister, a social worker, a diplomat, a tough guy, and a gentle man. And of course, he’ll have to be a genius, because he’ll have to feed a family on a policeman’s salary.”

So, why do we have so many out there who are calling for “dead cops”, while protesting over the deaths of criminals?

By the time President Johnson came into office, after the assassination of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the majority of Americans totally believed that our government always had our best interest at heart.

President Johnson came into office and immediately started his push for the Great Society. These programs were designed to make Americans even more dependent on the Federal Government for their very survival.

As the Vietnam War grew more and more and unpopular, Americans’ trust in the government became more and more compromised.  Protests against the Federal Government became more and more common and it became cool to be a rebel or “hippie”.

Time passed, and while rebellious Americans calmed down, Americans’ dependence upon government programs became generational, as multiple family members from one generation to the next, relied on Uncle Sugar for their daily existence.

Meanwhile, the rebels of the 1960’s got older and began to work within the system, taking jobs within the private and public sectors.

Eventually, they moved into positions of power, becoming heads of corporations and local and national politicians.

It is not really necessary to tell you what the political ideology of these rebels was, is it?

As the last century ended and the new one began, these hippies and their offspring, solidly in place in the halls of power, began to pass more more legislation designed to keep generations of Americans enslaved to Uncle Sugar.

In this present situation, what we are seeing is the result of anti-establishment rhetoric, spewed forth by those who are now actually “the Establishment”, taking hold, and spreading Class Envy and Racial Animus in such a way as to inspire violent retaliation for perceived “grievances”, by a fictional “White Establishment”, which is actually no longer in power, and the Police, who are seen as the emissaries of “The Man”.

It’s reminiscent of Lenin and the Bolsheviks.

Look it up, y’all.

Memphis: #BlueLivesMatter

11705359_10204866260559105_7158163699480644935_nPolice know that, every time they leave their loved ones to go on their shift, it may be the last time that they see them.

Saturday Night was the “End of Watch” for Memphis Police Officer Sean Bolton.

And now, there is a murderous coward on the loose in the Memphis Area.

Foxnews.com reports that

A suspect has been identified in the search for a gunman who shot and killed a Memphis police officer during a traffic stop, the city’s police director said Sunday night.

A warrant for first-degree murder has been issued for 29-year-old Tremaine Wilbourn, who is believed to be the shooter, Police Director Toney Armstrong said at a Sunday evening press conference.

Wilbourn is currently on supervised release for a 121 month sentence for robbery of a banking institution, Armstrong said.

Officer Sean Bolton, 33, may have interrupted an illicit drug transaction when he encountered a Mercedes-Benz illegally parked on a Memphis street Saturday night, according to Armstrong.

After Bolton illuminated the Mercedes with his spotlight, he approached the vehicle and was confronted by its passenger, who allegedly shot Bolton multiple times after a struggle, the director said.

Armstrong told reporters that 1.7 grams of marijuana was found inside the vehicle.

“He’s a coward,” Armstrong said of the suspect, Wilbourn, “you gun down a police officer for less than two grams of marijuana.”

“Last night we lost an officer and a great man, a dedicated servant and family member,” Armstrong said.

The police director said that the White House has contacted the department and is aware of the incident.

The United States Marshals Service has offered a $10,000 reward for Wilbourn’s capture.

The driver of the vehicle turned himself in to authorities Sunday morning, and has since been released without charge, Armstrong said at the press conference.

Police were initially alerted about 9:18 p.m. Saturday that an officer had been shot multiple times. Armstrong said the officer was transported in critical condition to a hospital, where he died.

In a statement Sunday morning, Memphis Police said that a civilian had used Bolton’s radio to notify police about the shooting.

Armstrong said police are using all available resources to find the shooter and that officers are grieving, adding that “this is just a reminder of how dangerous” the job is. 

“Sadly to say, we’ve been here before,” he said.

Bolton is the third Memphis officer to be fatally shot in slightly more than four years. Officer Tim Warren was killed while responding to a shooting at a downtown Memphis hotel in July 2011. In December 2012, Officer Martoiya Lang was killed while serving a warrant.

Memphis Mayor A.C. Wharton Jr. said Bolton’s death “speaks volumes about the inherent danger of police work” and asked others to “pray for the family and pray for our city.”

“The men and women in blue have certain rules of engagement that they have to follow, but at any given minute in a 24-hour day they’re dealing with folks who have no rules of engagement.

As I have mentioned before, I am a lifelong residence of the Memphis area.

I am also a member of a family who have had police officers in our ranks.

This cold-blooded murder took place in the area of Memphis, known as Parkway Village, an area which, in the 70s and 80s, was a strong middle-class neighborhood.

I know. I spent my high school and college years there, from 1972-1980.

My Mother and Daddy lived there, until they passed in 1995 and 1997, respectively.

In fact, when I was in college, and living at home, I received a speeding ticket on Cottonwood at Perkins, where this heinous murder took place.

I was doing 45 mph in a 35 mph, in my 1967 Plymouth Fury III, which had a 383 4-Barrel in it.

But, I digress…

I find it interesting that the White House is involved, considering the national racial animus against Police Officers has been cheered on by the occupants of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Every race-baiter, local & national, who have fanned the flames of racial hatred, has the blood of brave police officers, like Sean Bolton, on their hands.

The Great American Broadcaster, the late Paul Harvey, was the son of a policeman who died in the line of duty. He wrote the following tribute for one of his daily updates…

“What is a policeman?

“A policeman is a composite of what all men are, I guess, a mingling of saint and sinner, dust and deity. What that really means is that they are exceptional, they are unusual. They are not commonplace.

The policeman must be a minister, a social worker, a diplomat, a tough guy, and a gentle man. And of course, he’ll have to be a genius, because he’ll have to feed a family on a policeman’s salary.”

After Officer Bolton was murdered, Memphis Police Director Toney Armstrong (who happens to be black) said,

As a community we say so often as a theme — black lives matter. And at the end of the day, we have to ask ourselves, do all lives matter?  Regardless of race, creed, color, economic status, what profession that person holds. All lives matter. And this is just a reminder of how dangerous this job is.

…One life is too many, but how do you put a value on somebody’s life? How do you say one life is more important than another. So, again, what we need more than anything right now is just your prayers again for this MPD family as well as this officer’s family.

Without respect for our legal system, and for those in authority, whose job it is to enforce our system of laws, a civilized society can quickly evolve into a scene from The Lord of the Flies, where the most barbaric will have the most power and privilege. In other words, they will rule by intimidation.

The overwhelming majority of America’s Municipal Policemen become a part of the Thin Blue Line out of a sense of service to humanity.

Lord knows they don’t do it for the money.

Patrolman Bolton was one of those selfless Civil Servants.

He died in service to humanity…you and me.

Godspeed, Office Bolton.

May God hold your Loved Ones in the hollow of His hand.

The Charleston Church Massacre: Of “Princes and Principalities”

th (14)As the nation continues to reel from the savage attack by a lunatic with, evidently, a racial axe to grind, who murdered 9 innocent Christians in Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina, I have a question to ask you this morning :

Do you believe in Evil?

According to Gallup. Com, 92% of us in this country believe in a Supreme Being.

Therefore, if you believe in a benevolent God, logic dictates that you also believe in the Prince of the air, Lucifer, now known as Satan, once God’s most beautiful angel, known as the Lightbringer, who was cast down from heaven after rebelling against God.

By now, “the smartest people in the room”, are groaning, saying to themselves,

Surely, this stupid old cracker is not going to suggest that “the Devil made him do it”?

Well, boys and girls, Biblical Experts, including our Christian Leaders, whom we listen to every Sunday morning, tell us that while Satan is not allowed to physically harm us, as all of these popular Horror Movies “preach”, he is the Master of Deception and will continuously whisper in our ear, until he convinces us that wrong is right in right is wrong.

As Adam said to Eve,

I’ll bite.

I have spent the last couple of days, when I wasn’t working at my job, watching in fascination, as the Left side of the Political Aisle, as we euphemistically call Modern American Liberals, have inundated Facebook with articles and ignorant memes, attempting to make the murderer, Dylann Roof, out to be a Conservative White Supremacist.

This has turned out to be a completely false accusation, as his friends have related that the young man was not even interested in politics, whatsoever.

So, why did this young man turn into a murderous sociopath?

Somewhere, somehow, this 9th grade dropout, became convinced, through watching the news, and listening to the voices in his head, demons, imps, call them what you will, that America’s black population was somehow taking over this country and ruining it.

He became convinced. in his troubled mind, that it was up to him to do something about it. So, he went to Wednesday Night Bible Study at Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina.

Of course, all of the theories put for by the before-mentioned Liberals, that I heard all day yesterday, were a continuance of the speech made by President Barack Hussein Obama from the previous day, in which he said, basically, that this wouldn’t have  happened, if America had stricter “Gun Laws”, i.e., Gun Control.

Of course, the answer given back to these Liberals on Facebook and everywhere else the last couple of days, has been, if somebody in that congregation had actually been armed, through their First Amendment Right, Dylann Roof would not have been successful.

Over the next several weeks, perhaps months, every person seeking attention and believing themselves to be a pundit, whether political, sociological, or psychological, will spout forth all sorts of theories as to the motives of this sociopath.

They will probably claim that he wasn’t given enough attention as a child. Or, maybe they’ll put forth that he was hanging around the wrong crowd. And, of course the political pundits on the Left side of the Political Aisle, will testify that it is because he is of the Conservative Political Ideology.

My theory, as to his motivation, is much more simple than that.

Dylann Roof is evil.

Make no mistake about it, boys and girls, EVIL EXISTS.

We see it everyday around us.

It inundates the cable news channels, 24 hours a day. Heck, you can even see it on Facebook.

Since Cain slew Able with a rock, mankind, because we are all fallen creatures, has had to deal with the presence of evil in our lives.

From the legendary massacres, perpetrated by Vlad the Impaler, to the horrific scenes of Hitler’s Concentration Camps, to the killing fields of Pol Pot, to the massacre of innocent Middle Eastern Christians by Islamic State, to the murders by Chicago Street Gangs every night, the Forces of Evil continue to flourish across the globe.

So, while Wednesday night’s massacre in Charleston is a single act of violence and pure evil in a sea of many, the reaction by Christian Americans  to it has been remarkable.

The outpouring of Christian Compassion and the act of forgiveness by the families of those slain by this madman, given to Dylann Roof, has made this Christian American take a step back for a moment and praise the Righteousness and Amazing Grace of the One Who made him.

Yes, my friends. We are still fighting a war against “princes and principalities”. Evil is still alive and well and flourishing in a world in which relative morality and situational ethics have seemingly become the norm, instead of the exception.

However, the reaction to the events in Charleston have renewed my hope.

It is not a political hope, like we have heard spoken of, in the empty promises of man, for the last 7 years, Rather, mine is a hope, a belief, in the Divine Spark which is in each and every one of us. A Spark, which, if given the chance, glows brightly enough to not only to dispel, but to defeat the darkness around us.

So, as you go about your day today, remember, that we have an Advocate, in Jesus Christ the Righteous, and, He is in our corner.

So, take that “little light” of yours, and let it shine.

Until He Comes,

Hattiesburg, Baltimore, and Subway

AFBrancoFallen12272014Those of us living here in the State of Mississippi are mourning the deaths of two of our Finest.

The New York Times reports that

Law enforcement officials in Mississippi said Sunday that they had arrested four people after the fatal shooting of two police officers in Hattiesburg, and that two of the suspects had been charged with capital murder.

The officers were shot about 8 p.m. Saturday during a traffic stop, the police said. They were taken to Forrest General Hospital, where they died shortly after their arrival.

The Forrest County coroner, Butch Benedict, identified the officers as Benjamin Deen, 34, a K-9 officer, and Liquori Tate, 25, a 2014 graduate of the police academy. One of their police cars was stolen after the shooting and was found abandoned a few blocks away, investigators said.

The Mississippi Department of Public Safety announced on Sunday that Marvin Banks, 29, and Joanie Calloway, 22, had each been charged with two counts of capital murder, and that Mr. Banks’s brother, Curtis Banks, 26, had been charged with two counts of accessory after the fact of capital murder. At a news conference on Sunday afternoon, the mayor of Hattiesburg, Johnny L. DuPree, said a fourth suspect had been arrested. He was identified as Cornelius Clark, 28. Officials said Mr. Clark, who was charged with obstruction of justice, had been a passenger in the vehicle at the time of the shooting.

“We were able to catch these individuals and keep our promise to the officers’ families with the public’s help,” Mr. DuPree said at the news conference. “No parent wants to bury their child before them,” the mayor added. “And here we are on Mother’s Day. It’s a tragedy for all America. It’s a tragedy for our community.”

A spokesman for the Hattiesburg Police Department, Lt. Jon Traxler, said that both brothers are residents of Hattiesburg, and that each had been convicted of felony drug and weapons charges.

The shooting was still being investigated Sunday, and the authorities could provide only limited details. The fatal encounter began in an industrial area when Officer Deen pulled over a motorist for speeding, officials said. Ms. Calloway was in the driver’s seat and that Marvin Banks was a passenger, said Warren Strain, a spokesman for the Mississippi Department of Public Safety.

Officer Tate arrived after Officer Deen radioed for backup, and they put a call out for more help just before shots were fired from the stopped vehicle, Mr. DuPree said.

The suspects fled after the shooting, Mr. Strain said — Ms. Calloway in the vehicle that was stopped and Mr. Banks in one of the police cruisers.

In addition to the capital murder charges, Marvin Banks was charged with one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm and with grand theft.

The New York Post reports that

A suspected Subway sandwich store employee has sparked outrage with tasteless social media posts celebrating Saturday’s killing of two Mississippi cops.

“2 police officers was shot in hattiesburg tonight.!” cheered Sierra “C-Babi” Mccurdy, in a message posted overnight.

“We can turn this bxtch into Baltimore real quick,” she posted on Facebook. “Police take away innocent people lives everyday now & get away w/ it, fxck them…[no mercy].”

Twitter users expressed outrage at her remarks — and that the sandwich giant would have a person like that working for them.

“Wow. This piece of trash was celebrating the death of two policeman in Hattiesburg. Your [employee], @Subway,” one person tweeted.

Hattiesburg police officers Benjamin Deen, 34, and Liquori Tate, 25, were gunned down in the line of duty during a routine traffic stop Saturday night.

The Washington Post published the following paragraphs in an article posted on August 29, 2014.

An average person cannot comprehend the risks and has no true understanding of a cop’s job. Hollywood and television stereotypes of the police are cartoons in which fearless super cops singlehandedly defeat dozens of thugs, shooting guns out of their hands. Real life is different. An average cop is always concerned with his or her safety and tries to control every encounter. That is how we are trained. While most citizens are courteous and law abiding, the subset of people we generally interact with everyday are not the genteel types. You don’t know what is in my mind when I stop you. Did I just get a radio call of a shooting moments ago? Am I looking for a murderer or an armed fugitive? For you, this might be a “simple” traffic stop, for me each traffic stop is a potentially dangerous encounter. Show some empathy for an officer’s safety concerns. Don’t make our job more difficult than it already is.

Community members deserve courtesy, respect and professionalism from their officers. Every person stopped by a cop should feel safe instead of feeling that their wellbeing is in jeopardy. Shouldn’t the community members extend the same courtesy to their officers and project that the officer’s safety is not threatened by their actions? – Sunil Dutta, Ph.D., is a 17-year-veteran police officer in Los Angeles. His book, “Blood Lines: the Imperial Roots of Terrorism in South Asia,” was released in February, 2015.

Somehow, America’s Professional Race-Baiters, from the Community Organizer-in-Chief, Barack Hussein Obama, on down, have twisted the the facts and jumped to conclusions, refusing America’s Law Enforcement Officers’ their Due Process and, instead, immediately assuming that it was their fault that three thugs got themselves killed in altercations with police officers.

And, now. at least one person with no hope training is actually cheering the fact to two innocent Police Officers in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, were gunned down in cold blood.

What ever happened to personal responsibility?

President Ronald Reagan once said,

There are no constraints on the human mind, no walls around the human spirit, no barriers to our progress except those we ourselves erect.

Compare it to these words:

It’s not to make excuses for that fact — although black folks do interpret the reasons for that in a historical context. They understand that some of the violence that takes place in poor black neighborhoods around the country is born out of a very violent past in this country, and that the poverty and dysfunction that we see in those communities can be traced to a very difficult history. – President Barack Hussein Obama, 7/19/2014

President Obama, for his own political reasons, reinforces, at every opportunity, the self-fulfilling prophecy that the Black Community is still shackled and limited in their freedom.

Which is an ironic statement, considering, as a Black man, that he presently holds the position of President of the most powerful country on the face of the Earth.

On November 25th,2014, The Daily Caller reported that

Retired neurosurgeon and potential GOP 2016 candidate Ben Carson believes race relations in America, as a whole, have “gotten worse” under President Barack Obama’s leadership, saying he should take a ”balanced, objective look at things” instead of invoking the race card.

Carson made the comments to conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt Tuesday night.

“I actually believe that things were better before this president was elected,” Carson told Hewitt, “and I think that things have gotten worse because of his unusual emphasis on race.”

“Can you explain more? What do you mean by that?” asked Hewitt. “How did they get worse, and how did he contribute to it?”

“Well, for instance, in the incident with Henry Louis Gates, Skip Gates and him calling out the police, and you know, how they always do this kind of thing, and the Trayvon Martin case, you know, if I had a son, this is what he would look like, rather than trying to take the balanced, objective look at things, and then, you know, what’s happened here,” responded Carson.

“And then the way, which really irritates me to some degree, the way he and a bunch of progressives manipulate, particularly minority communities, to make them feel that they are victims. And of course if you think you’re a victim, you are a victim,” Carson continued.

Back in High School, during the 1974-1975 school year, I was a Sophomore Commissioner on the Student Council with a fellow named James. James was one of those students who were bused to our school. He went on to play football and run track. More importantly, James went on to have a 4.5 GPA, make a 32 on his ACT, and receive a full scholarship to Harvard, and later, went on to Johns Hopkins Medical School. James worked hard and he achieved.

Millions of other Black Americans have, as well.

The current race-baiting and racially-based pandering by the President, his Administration, and all those who profit from it, locally and nationally, dishonors those who have achieved and has constrained those who might otherwise achieve.

The ignorant young Subway Worker in Mississippi, who, by the way, was fired for her stupidity, is just one example.

It needs to stop. Now.

Reaping the Whirlwind of Race-Baiting: Two Dead New York City Policemen

AFBrancoBlackLeadereship12114I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. – Dr. Martin Kuther King, Jr.

The innocent families of two New York City Policemen will be in mourning this Christmas, instead of celebrating the birth of the Prince of Peace.

The New York Post has the story…

Two uniformed NYPD officers were shot dead Saturday afternoon as they sat in their marked police car on a Brooklyn street corner — in what investigators believe was a crazed gunman’s ­assassination-style mission to avenge Eric Garner and Michael Brown.

“No warning, no provocation — they were quite simply assassinated, targeted for their uniform,” Police Commissioner William Bratton said.

Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos were working overtime as part of an anti-terrorism drill in Bedford-Stuyvesant just before 3 p.m. when they were shot point-blank in the head by lone gunman Ismaaiyl Brinsley, 28, who had addresses in Georgia, Maryland and Brooklyn.

Moments after killing the two officers, Brinsley, too, was dead, having turned his gun on himself on a nearby subway platform as cops closed in.

Liu, 32, a newlywed of only two months, had seven years on the force; Ramos, 40, dad to two sons, had two years on the job.

Brinsley was already a fugitive, suspected of putting a bullet in his ex-girlfriend’s abdomen at her residence in Baltimore at 5:45 a.m. Saturday, Bratton said.

By early Saturday afternoon — just three hours before shooting Liu and Ramos — vile anti-police threats were posted to Brinsley’s Instagram page. The threats referenced the ­recent police-involved killings of Garner and Brown.

“I’m Putting Wings on Pigs Today,” a person believed to be the gunman wrote. “They Take 1 Of Ours . . . Let’s Take 2 of Theirs,” the post continued, ending with, “This May Be My Final Post.”

The Instagram page included an image of a silver automatic handgun with a wooden handle.

That gun matches the Taurus semiautomatic that police recovered from Brinsley. Another ­image showed the same camouflage pants and distinctive blue sneakers worn by the gunman as his body was carried from the scene on a stretcher. 

“I Rather Die a Gangster Then Go To Sleep A Coward,” read ­another post.

The sickening missives used the hashtag #ShootThePolice, along with two other hashtags referencing Garner and Brown.

Police in Baltimore had reached out via a “warning flier” to alert NYPD that Brinsley might be en route to Brooklyn, but the fax tragically arrived at 2:45 p.m. — five minutes before the shooting, Bratton said. “The tragedy here was that just as the warning was coming in, the murder was occurring,” Bratton said.

The execution of the cops follows nearly three weeks of powder-keg tensions in the wake of a Staten Island grand jury’s decision not to indict a police officer for the chokehold that contributed to Garner’s death.

Four officers have suffered minor injuries in scuffles with protesters, including two lieutenants attacked on the Brooklyn Bridge a week ago Saturday.

Brinsley walked up to the cops’ patrol car at the corner of Myrtle and Tompkins avenues, approaching from the sidewalk.

“They were siting in a marked NYPD car, in full uniform,” Bratton said of Liu and Ramos.

Brinsley “took a shooting stance on the passenger side and fired his weapon several times through the front passenger window, striking both officers in the head,” Bratton told reporters.

“Officer Liu and Officer Ramos never had the opportunity to draw weapons,” he said. “They may never actually have even seen their assailant — their murderer,” he said. Witnesses also said Brins­ley opened fire without ­uttering a word, a law-enforcement source told The Post.

Brinsley stood stock still for a few moments, fleeing into the subway when he heard the sirens of a second police car.

“The cops were struggling to get out of the vehicle,” eyewitness Courtney Felix, 23, of Bed-Stuy, told The Post. “They were hanging onto their wounds.

“One was clutching at his neck and the other was holding onto his collarbone. One cop stumbled out of the driver’s side and he leaned over to fall down,” the witness added. “He was trying to catch himself. He was mostly on the floor and he was fading out.”

Brinsley fled south on Tompkins to the subway where “they engaged the guy and he ‘did’ himself,” an NYPD investigator said.

Every race-baiter, local & national, who have fanned the flames of racial hatred, has the blood of these two police officers on their hands.

Recently, one half of the “Justice Brothers, the “Reverend Al Sharpton, led a march in New York City, capitalizing on the deaths of Michael Brown and Earl Garner. During the march, the protesters chanted

What do we want? Dead Cops!

Somehow, America’s Professional Race-Baiters, from the Community Organizer-in-Chief, Barack Hussein Obama, on down, have twisted the facts to make it America’s Law Enforcement Officers’ Fault that two thugs got themselves killed in altercations with police officers.

America Fights Back: Texas Shuts Down 13 Abortion Clinics

Abortion punishment 1052014Life begins at the moment of conception, and an abortion stops a beating heart.

There is no way around that.

However, I realize that referring to the act of abortion as “killing a baby” makes pro abortion advocates lose their feeble minds.

Ask me if I care.

They have spent years and years trying to convince the gullible among us, that it is not really a human being growing inside the mothers womb. And, even if it is, it is a punishment or, at least, that’s what the President of the United States referred to an unwanted baby as.

In our “One Nation Under God” today, President Obama and his Adminstration continue their fight for the “right” to allow women to kill their babies in the womb. It is as simple as that.

However, boys and girls, there are other options for unwed mothers. For instance, there’s this wonderful thing called adoption, through which of woman who does not want to be a single mother, can give her unwanted baby to a couple who will love and cherish that human life, and raise it in the way in which it should go.

Have you ever thought about why the Obama administration does not focus on that option, but instead advocates for the disposal of human life?

There is a simple and chilling exclamation: Couples who want to adopt are responsible loving people who are less likely to run to Uncle sugar for help in raising their child.

While women who seek abortions, tend to be of a lower economic strata and a more government- dependent lifestyle.

Like the purpose for passing the  national nightmare known as Obamacare, it all boils down to State Control of the populace.

In a State-Controlled Nation, there will be, by necessity, no room for Religious Freedom. For in a state-controlled nation, the Central Government itself is god.

The good news is that Americans are fighting back.

The Christian Post reports that

Some 13 abortion clinics in Texas will reportedly close after a federal appeals court ruled in favor of the state Thursday to fully enforce a new law that requires abortion facilities to meet the same health and safety standards as ambulatory surgical centers.

In a 38-page decision published Thursday, a three-judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in New Orleans, granted in part, a motion filed by the state of Texas to stay a district court’s injunction against the law, and finds that the law is constitutional and does not place an undue burden on abortionists and women seeking abortions.

The decision overrides District Judge Lee Yeakel’s August ruling, which stated that requiring abortion clinic owners to meet the same standards as ambulatory surgical centers, such as widening doorways to enable paramedics to bring stretchers into the clinic to transport patients to the hospital, is too costly and, therefore, “imposes an undue burden on women seeking an abortion,” and was “unconstitutional.”

Abortion clinic owners had one year to upgrade their facilities to meet the basic requirements of the law, which includes having adequate plumbing, heating, lighting and ventilation, and equipment that can properly sterilize surgical instruments; ensuring that the doors to the facilities can accommodate stretchers for emergencies; and to maintain a sanitary facility to ensure the health and safety of patients.

In allowing the injunction against Texas’ abortion law, Yeakel ruled that requiring abortion clinics to meet the same standards as ambulatory surgical centers, along with requiring abortionists to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of their clinics, would “create a brutally effective system of abortion regulation.”

On Thursday, however, the three-judge panel for the Fifth Circuit sided with Texas state lawyers in agreeing that claiming that a “large fraction” of women seeking abortions would face an unconstitutional burden because of the safety upgrades and the hospital admitting privileges requirement, is insufficient grounds for blocking the law.

The judges granted the stay pending a full appeal from state lawyers but highlighted that based on the evidence presented by the state they believe Texas is likely to prevail over challengers of the law.

If the state wins, abortion clinic owners will be required to upgrade the facilities that are not in compliance with the law (if they choose to remain open), at a combined estimated cost of $1.5 million, or only $45,000 to $115,000 per clinic.

Clinic owners were given one year to meet the Sept. 1 deadline. Many, however, said they would close their clinics instead of paying to upgrade their facilities to meet safety standards for the 60,000 to 72,000 women who have abortions in Texas each year.

Have you ever tried to have a discussion with an ardent  pro-abortion supporter, either on Facebook or face-to-face? You won’t hear these “Champions of Tolerance” call those innocent lives, babies, human beings, a life, a soul, a gift from God, or anything remotely resembling something that they should feel remorse about killing.

Heck, Pro-Abortionists are opposed to the taking of sonograms of the woman’s womb, before she has a abortion. They’re afraid that the “seed-carrier” will realize that IS a HUMAN BEING inside her, and will decide not to kill that baby.

Here are some thoughts from The Book provided by The Author of Life:

Did not He who made me in the womb make him, And the same one fashion us in the womb? (Job 31:15)

Yet Thou art He who didst bring me forth from the womb; Thou didst make me trust when upon my mother’s breasts. Upon Thee I was cast from birth; Thou hast been my God from my mother’s womb. (Psalm 22:9-10)

For Thou didst form my inward parts; Thou didst weave me in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to Thee, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Thy works, And my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from Thee, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth. Thine eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Thy book they were all written, The days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them. (Psalm 139:13-16)

Thus says the LORD who made you And formed you from the womb, who will help you, `Do not fear, O Jacob My servant; And you Jeshurun whom I have chosen. (Isaiah 44:2)

Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, and the one who formed you from the womb, “I, the LORD, am the maker of all things, Stretching out the heavens by Myself, And spreading out the earth all alone, (Isaiah 44:24)

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, And before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5)

Why,  even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not;  you are of more value than many sparrows.”(Luke 12:7 )

From the scientific perspective, Dr. Carlo Bellieni, in his book “Dawn of the I: Pain, Memory, Desire, Dream of the Fetus,” writes:

As soon as it is born, the child shows in a scientifically demonstrable way that it recognizes its mother’s voice and distinguishes it from that of a stranger. Where has he learned that voice other than in the maternal womb?

There are also direct proofs. For example, we register how the movements and cardiac frequency of the fetus vary if we transmit unexpected sounds through the uterine wall. And we see that at first the fetus is startled, then it gets used to it, just like we do when we hear something that does not interest us.

In fact, the scientific evidence is immense. We cannot understand how it can be thought that it becomes a person at a certain point, perhaps when coming out of the uterus.

From the physical point of view, at the birth very little really changes: Air enters the lungs, the arrival of blood from the placenta is interrupted, the type of circulation of blood in the heart changes, and not much more.

As I often say, only blind faith in magic arts or some strange divinity can lead one to think that there is a “human” quality leap at a given moment — certainly not science.

I know that there are some of you that read my blog that are non-believers.  For you and for my Christian brothers and sisters, I offer the following closing thoughts:

There is a curious unique enzyme found in the human body.   Laminin is defined by the Webster Medical Dictionary as a “glycoprotein that is a component of connective tissue basement membrane and that promotes cell adhesion.”  In other words, a glue within the body.

Colossians 1:15-17 tells us:

15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. 17And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

I believe that our nation and our leaders should realize that you cannot mock God. With actions come consequences. You know, that “cause and effect” thingy that “the Smartest people in the Room” are so found of bringing up.

Each and every life is precious to The Creator. That baby growing in her womb, is not the property of the mother. Each and every one of us belong to the One who made us. He is our Sovereign Lord.

All those who believe that “it is a woman’s right to choose”…think too highly of themselves.

For every life is a Gift from The Creator to be loved and cherished, as He first loved us.

Until He Comes,
