THE HIGHLANDS TEA PARTY MEETING – August 27, 2019 – Vicki Pontius – Candidate for County Commission district 5

THE HIGHLANDS TEA PARTY

AND OUR NATION’S DESTINY

THE PUBLIC IS ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND ALL MEETINGS
PARTY AFFILIATION IS NOT AN ISSUE…

HOMERS SMORGASBORD

AUGUST 27th

Vicki Pontius
Candidate for County Commissioner District 5
Currently held by Commissioner Gregg Harris.

Pontius, a member of the Highlands County Republican Committee, will run as a Republican, naturally, and will face Harris in the August 2020 primary.  Among the policies she wants to see enacted are those that improve the county image to potential visitors and residents and improve the county infrastructure for those who do live here.  “I want to maintain and build great infrastructure and build amenities so families won’t move away,” Pontius said.
She and her husband, Rick Pontius, have two daughters – 30-year-old Jenna and 26-year-old Alexis, who both live in the county – and three grandchildren: two boys, ages 7 and 3 months, and a girl, age 2.  They are expecting another granddaughter in October.
The family enjoys a life in the country on land near Highlands Hammock State Park. They have a 120-pound bloodhound and a 300-pound pet sow, a tamed wild pig they keep in a pen and raised from a piglet.
Pontius grew up in Highlands County. Born in New Haven, Connecticut, she and her family moved to Hollywood, Florida, when she was 5 years old and then to Sebring when she was 10, in 1971.  She graduated Sebring High School in 1979 and South Florida State College in 2005 while she had a family and a full-time job.  She worked her first 15 years with the county in the Road and Bridge Department, starting as a parts expediter – providing logistics and supply for batteries, tires, nuts, bolts and anything else needed to repair vehicles and supply work crews.  She started that job at age 21.
She worked up to assistant director of operations for that department. The next 20 years, she would spend in as a director over Parks and Recreation and Leisure Services, which include natural resources, tourism, libraries, and such tasks as invasive plant control and the county’s carpentry shop.  Approximately four years ago, she earned her bachelor’s degree in interdisciplinary studies, with a focus on law, ethics, and strategic planning, from Hodges University. She graduated summa cum laude – with the highest distinction.
At retirement, as director of Leisure Services, she had 50 employees under her direction.
In addition to the TDC, she now serves on the Highlands County Health Insurance Committee, and has been a member of the Sebring Historical Society for years.  She likes to still stay involved in what’s going on in our government in some capacity.  She and her family have enjoyed this life in Highlands County.  She wants to make the county a place where young people can stay and thrive.
She points to her years of experience, her formal education and her “behind-the-curtain” knowledge of the internal workings of local government as skills she can bring to bear while serving the people of Highlands County.

Candace Owens – Opening Statement
9 April 2019
House Judiciary Committee Hearing on Hate Crimes


Opening statement  The House Judiciary Committee by
Candace Owens – Turning Point USA


Representative Ken  Buck (CO)  questions Candace Owens


Representative Steube (FL) gives the floor to Candace Ownes


Candace slaps down the negative lying comments from
Representative Lieu CA

The House Judiciary Committee held a hearing to examine and discuss how to combat white nationalism and hate crimes. A North Carolina father spoke about how his daughters and son in law were killed execution style, a tragedy he said sparked from bigotry and hate. Candace Owens, communications director for Turning Point USA and a conservative commentator, also testified criticizing Democrats for holding such a hearing. Democratic Chairman Nadler could not take anymore and cut her off!

THE TRUTH REALLY HURTS

COMMENTS:

— Thank you Candace for your tireless efforts to wake black America. You are a true American patriot. You crystallize the American from the un-American. There is nothing more tragic or sinister to behold than entire swaths of people in chains. The chains that restrain you through an oppressed victim mindset arresting any introspection, self critiscm, or self awareness.
— It’s wonderful having young Americans like Candace.  I am very proud of her
— This is a young lady that any mom or dad should be proud of.  I know that I am very proud of her and would love to be able to be one of those conservative groups that she speaks to 3 or 4 times a week.  When you see someone of her age it gives a lot of us older people hope that America will survive.

— This female African American, could well be a candidate for President? So few, have this insight, & integrity, honor, as well as patriotism! I salute you, Candace Owens!

— Why don’t politicians and special interest groups stop whining about “hate”. It’s an emotion, and that’s all it is. A persons actions are the only thing that matters, not emotions. Nobody cares what you love or what you hate, as long as your actions are in support of our Constitution, equal opportunity, and equal treatment under the law. Making laws against an emotion and calling them “hate crimes” is infantile at best and insane at worst. By the way, Candace is awesome.

— Democrats continue their insane lies and rants because all they want is power and nothing else. They don’t give a damn about America, about liberty, or about blacks. They simply lie and divide us for their own selfish ends. I pray that President Trump wins in a landslide as President Reagan did for his reelection.

 

CALL IT WHAT YOU WANT, THIS NOT SPREADING HATE IT IS TELLING THE FACTS,THERE ARE THOSE IN AMERICA WHO WANT TO PROMOTE RADICAL ISLAM – AMERICA NEEDS TO WAKE UP – THEY ARE NOT HERE TO BE OUR FRIEND!

We have today tow Muslim women in our congress they both follow the Qur’an and Sharia law, the hate the jews, want to destroy the Jewish State. The support CAIR, which in turn Supports terror organizations in the middle East like Hamas
Some people try to say what the Qur’an states, along with other Islamic versions about taking Christians and Jews as Friends, are misinterpretations of the 4 texts, I do not buy it, if this was fact why would all Internationally recognized version of Islam translate exactly the same way?

HERE ARE VERSES FROM EACH PRINTER AND TRANSLATED VERSION OF THE HOLY QUR’AN, TELLING MUSLIMS NOT TO TAKE CHRISTIANS AND JEWS AS FRIENDS.

Quranic Arabic Corpus, an annotated linguistic resource for the Holy Quran. This page shows seven parallel translations in English for the 51st verse of chapter 5 (sūrat l-māidah).

Chapter (5) sūrat l-māidah (The Table spread with Food)

Sahih International: O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies. They are [in fact] allies of one another. And whoever is an ally to them among you – then indeed, he is [one] of them. Indeed, Allah guides not the wrongdoing people.
Pickthall: O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for friends. They are friends one to another. He among you who taketh them for friends is (one) of them. Lo! Allah guideth not wrongdoing folk.
Yusuf Ali: O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust.
Shakir: O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.
Muhammad Sarwar: Believers, do not consider the Jews and Christians as your intimate friends for they are only friends with each other. Whoever does so will be considered as one of them. God does not guide the unjust people.
Mohsin Khan: O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians as Auliya’ (friends, protectors, helpers, etc.), they are but Auliya’ to one another. And if any amongst you takes them as Auliya’, then surely he is one of them. Verily, Allah guides not those people who are the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong­doers and unjust).
Arberry: O believers, take not Jews and Christians as friends; they are friends of each other. Whoso of you makes them his friends is one of them. God guides not the people of the evildoers.
We need to insure these two get voted out in 2020, and that no more Mulims are allowed in the Offices of the United States of America, they are not here to be our friends, this is grossly evident by these two attitudes and comments!




Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., wrote in 2017 that America was founded by genocide and our foreign policy smacks of “neocolonialism.”“We must confront that our nation was founded by the genocide of indigenous people and on the backs of slaves, that we maintain global power with the tenor of neocolonialism,

  • Rep. Rashida Tlaib attacked those in Congress that stood up against the anti-Israel BDS movement, claiming “they forgot what country they represent.” (BDS has a goal to destroy Israel through boycotts – this is not what the United States uses boycotts for)
  • Speaking at a liberal event in Washington, she accused Jews who have criticized her anti-Semitic statements as holding her to a different standard because she’s Muslim,  (Really you thinK so? they are raised to hate them, read the verses above, they feel the same way about American’s and will lets know in due time))
  • Rep. Ilhan Omar questioned the patriotism of Americans who support pro-Israel policies, asking why “it is okay to push for allegiance to a foreign country.” (Rep. Omar hates the Jews and the Jewish nation of Israel)
  • Omar has claimed that support for Israel is “all about the Benjamins.” ($100 Dollar Bills)
  • Omar once tweeted (May Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel,” came in reaction to Israel’s November 2012 operation against Hamas in Gaza.) (Omar apparently feels that HAMAS can launch thousands of rockets in to Israel, and that they have no right to retaliate)
  • Omar and Tlaib have both declared support for the BDS movement that demonizes Israel. (a week after her election,she told the Muslim Girl website that she “believes in and supports the BDS movement.”)

AMERICA OPEN YOUR EYEs!
THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS LEADING THIS NATION DOWN THE ROAD OF DESTRUCTION FROM WITHIN!

Listen to the rhetoric of the Democratic and Socialist Presidential candidates, if anyone of them ever got in office, this country would look like Venezuela in less that ten years!

 

Social Security: Which Political Party Drained it Dry? It Starts with “D”


We’re told Republicans wants to do away with Social Security but is that true? This video shows which political party consistently drained Social Security dry–and it wasn’t the Republican Party.
NOTE: Less than one day after we posted this video, we received an admonishment for allegedly advancing ‘urban myths’ about Social Security. We were giving the following links that supposedly debunk our video: http://www.socialsecurity.gov/history… http://www.socialsecurity.gov/history…
But from what we could tell, only item #3 seems to be 100% true.The other line items seem to be spin to defuse some of the punch of this video. So we added a note at the part of the video that claims Social Security payments were originally tax deductible. Our apology for our error in this one area but we are letting the video stand, and encouraging viewers to visit the link from Social Security Administration attempting to discredit the points made in this video. One final note: We didn’t write this video script. We merely are passing it along as requested in the original viral email we we received. We merely added graphics and narration. Thank you.

Fisher Border Wall El Paso, TX Extended Cut Version – You Need to watch this video

Published on Jun 25, 2019

On April 29th, 2019, Fisher Sand & Gravel Co. was contacted by We Build the Wall to construct a half mile of fence in Sunland Park, New Mexico. The location was deemed “Unbuildable” by government agencies due to the harsh construction conditions. In just over one month of being notified of this project, Fisher procured and fabricated the bollard fence panels and finished all construction within two weeks.

about border barriers

Published on Mar 20, 2019

Amid the roiling national debate about immigration and a border wall, construction crews in El Paso, Texas, are busy replacing 20 miles of wire mesh fencing with a bollard-style structure. Border Patrol says this kind of barrier is crucial for preventing people from crossing the border illegally. Special correspondent Angela Kocherga talks to El Paso residents about how it affects their community.

Red Flag” Gun Confiscation Laws Are Even Worse Than You Think

Red Flag” Gun Confiscation Laws Are
Even Worse Than You Think

By Chuck Baldwin
August 22, 2019

As I said in this column last week, Republicans Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio are joining forces with liberal Democrats to soon enact “red flag” gun confiscation laws. I also reported on the push for the enactment of other gun control measures such as universal background checks being promoted on Capitol Hill and by the White House here.
Yes, Donald Trump is calling for “red flag” gun confiscation laws and universal background checks. Trump said, “I have an appetite for background checks. We’re going to be doing background checks. We’re going to be filling in . . . the loopholes.”
I urge readers to watch my 8-minute video exposing Donald Trump’s betrayal of his promise to protect the 2nd Amendment and share it with as many of your friends as you can. If we don’t convince our U.S. senators to reject these egregious gun control measures, THEY WILL BE PASSED, AND TRUMP WILL SIGN THEM INTO LAW. We have about two or three weeks to convince our senators to reject these new gun control laws. That’s it.
Please watch the video and share it with everyone you can.
If law-abiding gun owners don’t call their U.S. senators en masse, and I mean posthaste, you are very likely to wake up one morning around 4am to the sound of a SWAT team breaking down your door to confiscate your guns, prepared to kill you or any member of your family who resists. Why? Perhaps because a gun-hating neighbor hates you having guns or a relative doesn’t like you and is looking for any way to “teach you a lesson” or your ex-spouse is looking for any way to “get even” with you or an anti-gun cop with a grudge wants to send a political message or a family doctor or school teacher overheard one of your children talk about how many guns daddy has and became alarmed, etc., ad infinitum.
Plus, the FBI has just recently stated that if you believe in “conspiracy theories,” you are a “domestic terrorist threat.” That statement is from an FBI intelligence bulletin from the bureau’s Phoenix field office, dated May 30, 2019. That FBI designation alone could very easily precipitate a “red flag” gun confiscation order being rendered against you.
And Donald Trump himself recently demonstrated how dangerous “red flag” laws are. In a tweet on August 13, President Trump said,
Would Chris Cuomo be given a Red Flag for his recent rant? Filthy language and a total loss of control. He shouldn’t be allowed to have any weapon. He’s nuts!
Are you paying attention? Donald Trump was threatening to use a “red flag” law to authorize police agencies to take away an American citizen’s Natural God-given right of self-defense simply because Trump didn’t like what the citizen said—about him.
Folks, don’t you see? Those in authority can use “red flag” gun confiscation laws against ANYONE they want and for ANY REASON they want.
In other words, there doesn’t have to be a reason. Under “red flag” laws, all it takes for police to come and seize your guns is for someone to make a “red flag” accusation against you. That’s it. And, yes, it really IS that easy.
“Red flag” laws not only eviscerate the 2nd Amendment, but the 1st Amendment, 4th Amendment, 5th Amendment, 6th Amendment, 7th Amendment and 8th Amendment.
The enforcement of “red flag” laws is actually much worse than you think, so says Donald Kilmer, an attorney who has litigated and defended against many state and federal gun charges.
Everyone is debating “red flag” laws like they’re some new thing, but California has had variations of them for decades. We call them domestic violence restraining orders, civil harassment restraining orders, workplace restraining orders, elder abuse restraining orders, mental health seizures and prohibition orders, and, more recently, gun violence restraining orders.
They’re all meant to disarm dangerous people — but they’re all fundamentally flawed.
None of these red flag laws would have prevented recent mass shootings. And in my 23 years practicing law in the heart of Silicon Valley, I have litigated dozens of these cases. I’ve seen firsthand the practical enforcement problems that emerge in real-life cases.
These kinds of court orders are usually obtained from a judge ex parte. That’s fancy Latin for: The judge only hears one side of the story, it is not your side, and you may not even know about it until after the fact. Then they immediately strip you of fundamental constitutional rights for the duration of the orders. You’ll get your “full due process” hearing, but not until later.
And any violation of these orders is separately punishable as a crime. So even if you are innocent of the underlying conduct that inspired the “red flag” order, if you violate the order pending your hearing, you can still face criminal charges.
That kind of situation is ripe for danger. In one situation in Baltimore, police ended up shooting [and killing] a man when they came to collect his guns under a “red flag” law.
In one case in Southern California, a client had to pay a $1,000 ransom, that was reduced from an initial “offer” of $4,000, to get his 50-gun collection back.
Experienced counsel to defend you in a “due process” hearing will run about $15,000 in fees. If you lose and want to appeal, expect to spend another $25,000 to $100,000 in fees and costs. And even with all of that, you might still lose.
To win these hearings, you have to refute an allegation that you pose a danger to yourself or others where a judge already issued a temporary ex parte order that concluded you were already a danger. Many judges will likely err on the side of caution, and against your rights.
As a practical matter, if the government’s interest is in separating a potentially-dangerous person from guns, it makes no sense to leave other guns that belong to family members in the home. So, if you live with someone that gets a red flag order issued against them, then you and others living in the same home risk losing your guns, too.
Even if you win, the judge isn’t going to just hand your guns back to you at the end of the hearing. It’s probably a good idea to “lawyer up” just to go through the process of recovering your guns, so you don’t go to jail or prison for accidentally breaking an obscure firearm law or regulation. You wouldn’t want to set off a red flag.
Law-abiding gun owners better get a big whiff of reality SOON and realize that if they are going to maintain the right to keep and bear arms much longer, THEY must step up to the plate and defend that right—and I mean RIGHT NOW.
The NRA is compromised and is in complete disarray and is offering NO HELP. Donald Trump has already proven he has ZERO fidelity to the 2nd Amendment (or to the rest of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, for that matter). Most Christians and conservatives are in a state of deep denial and hibernation, believing that their yellow-haired savior would never betray them, in spite of the fact that he has already betrayed them—repeatedly.
It is up to individual freedomists and gun owners who are willing to fight for their right to keep and bear arms to fend off this assault against our 2nd Amendment liberties. Reinforcements are not coming; it is up to YOU AND ME.
How much does the 2nd Amendment mean to you? Each of us will determine the answer to that question by what we do or do not do RIGHT NOW.
P.S. I, again, URGE readers to watch my 8-minute video regarding Trump’s betrayal of the 2nd Amendment and the push for the enactment of “red flag” gun confiscation laws and share it with everyone you can. In the video, I also include the phone numbers for both the White House and U.S. Senate, where you can call and voice your opposition.
P.P.S. Here is my video Open Letter To Our Legislator, Judges And Lawmen regarding “red flag” gun confiscation laws. Please watch it and share.

ILHAN OMAR MUST RESIGN FROM THE U.S. HOUSE SHE IS A DISGRACE TO REPRESENT THIS COUNTRY!

Ilhan Omar was just annihilated by the
last person she ever expected

The mainstream media loves Rep. Ilhan Omar.  She can say whatever horrible things she wants and the media will defend her. But Ilhan Omar was just annihilated by the last person she ever expected.
Rep. Ilhan Omar has been losing her mind since getting news that she is banned from visiting the Jewish state of Israel.
Israeli officials made clear that her denial is based on her support for the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which calls on businesses to boycott Israel.  The goal of the movement is to destroy Israel by cutting off trade, making it impossible for them to fund their ever-rising defense costs.  Omar is a major supporter of this movement, and gains sympathy from many in the Left over it.
But one person on the Left who isn’t buying the scheme is Bill Maher, the host of HBO’s “Real Time.”
He points out that those who support the movement “slept through history class,” and that the person who co-founded the movement doesn’t even want a Jewish state to exist.  “It’s a bulls**t purity test. BDS is a bulls**t purity test by people who want to appear woke but actually slept through history class,” Maher said. “It’s predicated on this notion — I think it’s very shallow thinking — that the Jews in Israel are mostly white and the Palestinians are browner, so they must be innocent and correct, and the Jews must be wrong.”
“As if the occupation came right out of the blue, that this completely peaceful people found themselves occupied,” Maher continued. “Forget about the intifadas and the suicide bombings and the rockets and how many wars.”  “Let me read Omar Barghouti, one of the co-founders of the movement,” Maher added. “His quote: ‘No rational Palestinian … would ever accept a Jewish state in Palestine.’ So that’s where that comes from, this movement, someone who doesn’t even want a Jewish state at all. Somehow this side never gets presented in the American media. It’s very odd.”
In response, Ilhan Omar — along with her pal Rashida Tlaib — lost her mind. They are encouraging a boycott of the show.
And in response, Jewish groups are firing back at the two Congresswomen.

I THINK HILLARY CLINTON MAY BE LOOKING AT A NEW PANTS SUIT!

INSIDE JW
Federal Court Hearing on Clinton Emails – Judicial Watch Asking for Deposition of Hillary Clinton
(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that a federal court ordered a hearing for Thursday, August 22, 2019, on the Clinton email issue. On December 6, 2018, U.S. District Court Judge Lamberth ordered Obama administration senior State Department officials, lawyers and Clinton aides to be deposed or answer written questions under oath. The court ruled that the Clinton email system was “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.”

The court ordered discovery into three specific areas: whether Secretary Clinton’s email use of a private email server was intended to stymie FOIA; whether the State Department’s intent to settle this case in late 2014 and early 2015 amounted to bad faith; and whether the State Department has adequately searched for records responsive to Judicial Watch’s request. Judicial Watch deposed nearly a dozen witnesses and will seek addition witnesses and documents from the court, including the deposition of Hillary Clinton and Cheryl Mills, her chief of staff at State and personal lawyer who directed the destruction of 33,000 State Department Clinton emails. Lawyers for Clinton and Mills are expected at the hearing Thursday.

The hearing and report were ordered in accordance with a July 2014 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit, which was filed after the U.S. Department of State failed to respond to a May 13, 2014, FOIA request (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:14-cv-01242)).

In initially granting Judicial Watch discovery, Judge Lamberth criticized the State and Justice Department for possible “bad faith” and “chicanery.”

“Judicial Watch’s has recently gathered troubling, new evidence about the Clinton email scandal and we hope the court will grant us additional discovery to get more facts,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “And it is outrageous that the Justice Department continues to try to shield Hillary Clinton on her email misconduct.”

Judicial Watch’s discovery over the last several months found many more details about the scope of the Clinton email scandal and cover-up:

  • John Hackett, the former director for Information Programs and Services (IPS), which handles records management at the State Department, testified under oath that he had raised concerns that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s staff may have “culled out 30,000” of the secretary’s “personal” emails without following strict National Archives standards. He also revealed that he believed there was interference with the formal FOIA review process related to the classification of Clinton’s Benghazi-related emails.
  • Heather Samuelson, Clinton’s White House liaison at the State Department, and later Clinton’s personal lawyer, admitted under oath that she was granted immunity by the Department of Justice in June 2016.
  • Justin Cooper, former aide to President Bill Clinton and Clinton Foundation employee who registered the domain name of the unsecure clintonemail.comserver that Clinton used while serving as Secretary of State, testified he worked with Huma Abedin, Clinton’s deputy chief of staff, to create the non-government email system.
  • In the interrogatory responses of E.W. (Bill) Priestap, assistant director of the FBI Counterintelligence Division, he stated that the agency found Clinton email records in the Obama White House, specifically, the Executive Office of the President.
  • Jacob “Jake” Sullivan, Clinton’s senior advisor and deputy chief of staff when she was secretary of state, testified that both he and Clinton used her unsecure non-government email system to conduct official State Department business.
  • Eric Boswell, former assistant secretary of state for diplomatic security during Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state, testified that Clinton was warned twice against using unsecure BlackBerrys and personal emails to transmit classified material.
The court hearing details are below:

John BIrch Society – The Epidemic of Illegal Immigration

The Epidemic of Illegal Immigration

Written by   Published in JBS News Monday, 19 August 2019 19:34
The Epidemic of Illegal Immigration
There is little doubt that illegal immigration has reached epidemic proportions, amounting to an invasion.  As bad as it had been, it has escalated recently as the political winds have shifted leftward. As hard-left Democrats and Deep State globalists become more militant in making illegal immigrants the poster of their political campaigns, the illegal migrant invasion has nearly doubled over the last year.
Contrary to what you see on the media, these migrants are not coming home because of violence or fear of persecution but rather to improve their lives. They are coming to America because of economic opportunities, reunification with family that have migrated previously, and the opportunity for better jobs and more money.  According to the cover story in the July 8th issue of The New American, 90 percent of asylum claims are phony while asylum claims have increased 2,000% in the last five years.
What’s missing in this debate is the conspiracy to flood America with enough migrants to change our governmental system from a Constitutional Republic to socialism to Communism. History has shown us that when large waves of migrants are introduced into a country, society changes, the electorate changes and then the government changes.
Globalists are doing all they can to flood America with migrants. Not to mention creating as many entangling alliances as it takes to surrender our sovereignty and get us to look to government (unconstitutional of course) for the answer, usually to problems they are creating.
Many in the media won’t report this side of the story and would much rather have open borders, much like the globalists have created in the EU.
To best protect our precious system of government that has afforded many generations of Americans with the very best opportunities, we must enforce the laws we now have and ask legal immigrants to assimilate.
A good refresher to our American system is our timeless video Overview of America. It depicts the unique system of government our founders gave us and why we should protect it. We also recommend incorporating into your education and recruiting efforts the giveaway of Overview of America DVDs as well as our slim jim, “Are you a Globalist or an Americanist?” Help us in protecting America from the globalist agenda so that we can preserve our sovereignty.

The heart, Mind and Soul of Islam.

The heart, Mind and Soul of Islam.

By those that practice it, it is called “Religion of peace”. There are those however, who would disagree with that statement.

Many people see the Muslims as an Angry violent people who use the two-fold method of Jihad and Fatah to further their geo-political plans and sadly, the vast majority of the people remain blissfully ignorant of ever swelling tide of Muslim cultural expansion.
A quick google images search of the words Islam will dominate gives quite the eyeful.
It shows very quickly photos from around the world of Muslims carrying signs of banners that proclaim things like “freedom can go to hell” Islam will dominate the world” and Sharia Law – the true solution” as well as many other rage tag lines.
My first take on that is that it does not seem overly friendly.
Is this the work of scattered ‘radical fringe groups’ or is it the view of the majority Muslims around the world? Well look at it like this’ someone has said that 1% of Muslims worldwide are jihadists.
Ok, even though that figure is so underrated, still that’s fine 1% is a small number until you realize that at last count there was 1.3Bn Muslims worldwide. For those of you who are math challenged, please note that, that is 13M Muslims that engage in passive or active Jihadists extremists’ activities.
An important question is that, where are those 13+ Million dangerous religious extremists? Are they confined in a certain location or scattered around the world?
The 13 million Muslim extremists are a far bigger number than the military personnel of the 5 leading largest armies in the world combined! United States has (1,281, 900), China has (2,183,000), Russia has (1,013,628), India has (1,362,500) and North Korea has (1,280,000) altogether the leading largest armies in the world have about 7,121,028 combined!
Since 9/11, there have been an estimated over 15000 deadly terror attacks carried out worldwide all by Muslims terrorists.
The Koran/Quran the Muslim Holy book is filled with words on how Muslims should live their lives and how they should interact with those around them.
The following is just a few quotes taken direct from the Quran.
On interacting with the Jews and Christians “oh you who believe! Do not take the Jews and Christians for friends, they are friends of each other and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend then surely is one of them. Surely Allah does not guide the unjust people. (Surat 5:51)
The Jews say Uzair is the son of Allah; and the Christians say that Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths. They imitate saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them. How they turned away! (Surah 9:30).
And the Jews will not be pleased with you nor the Christians until you follow their religion. Say surely Allah’s guidance that is the (true) guidance. And if you follow their desires after the knowledge that has come to you, you shall have no guardian from Allah nor any helper. (Surah 2:120)
According to Surat/Surah Bakar 2:193, the Islamic world empire is the primary goal of this religious society.
That is why today Islam is building a power of potential on all continents with its oil and financial weapons.
The dream and struggle of Muslims ideologists are ardent and lofty.
They would like Islam to become the world ruling power.
It should be understood that for a Muslim, there is no separation between religion and politics.
They are using all available means, politically, economically socially, forcefully etc. in order to subject anyone to Islam.
When seduction and money fail to convert nations to Islam then the Islamic sword is raised high and war chants fill the air.
For Islam, peace (Salaam) is not achieved until Islam has swallowed the land.
Peace in Islam means total eradication of all non-Muslims. It means subjugating killing or swallowing all non-conformists.
Nobody should therefore ever imagine giving peace a chance in a nation with a significant number of Muslims.
An Islamic world empire remains the unwavering goal of this religious society.
Muslims will not settle for just being another religion faith, for the very essence of Islam demands world dominance that they have to subdue everybody and bring the whole world under Sharia law.
Some people who are not acquitting with Arabic or those who get deceived, fail to differentiate between the Arabic word Salaam and Islam thus ending up with a wrong conclusion that Islam means peace. This is not true, Islam means to Submit, bow, give in, Succumb, surrender yet Salaam is the word that means peace, the equivalent of Shalom in Hebrew.

No recession it is another Panic button Item of the Far left DEMS, they are losing, trying to create situations to stand on.

Kudlow: ‘There’s no recession on the horizon’

BY ZACK BUDRYK – 
White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow on Sunday sought to allay fears of an economic downturn, saying, “I don’t see a recession at all.”
The White House adviser demurred when asked by “Fox News Sunday” guest host Dana Perino whether the Trump administration is considering concrete steps to stave off a potential recession after short-term U.S. Treasury bonds last week fell below yields for longer-term bonds. The development, which can signal a forthcoming recession, sparked the worst single-day losses for stocks of 2019.
“The Trump pro-growth program, which I believe has been succeeding, we’re going to stay with that,” Kudlow told Perino.
“There’s no recession on the horizon,” he added. “What’s wrong with a little optimism?”

Kudlow echoed the comments in an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
Host Chuck Todd noted, however, that Kudlow made similar remarks in 2007, shortly before the Great Recession began, and wrote, “There’s no recession coming. … The pessimistas were wrong.”
“I plead guilty to that,” Kudlow responded on NBC.
Fox’s Perino also asked Kudlow about President Trump’s frequent references ahead of the 2018 midterm elections to a 10 percent tax cut for middle-income earners that never materialized. Kudlow responded that the administration is “looking at it” and also touted a proposal by Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) to offset tariffs with additional tax cuts.  She also pressed Kudlow on the ongoing trade war between the U.S. and China. Last week, the administration announced several categories of tariffs on Chinese goods would be delayed until December.
“The goal here is very simple. We want to minimize any impact [of tariffs] on the American consumer. So far it’s been virtually zero,” Kudlow said, echoing comments by White House trade adviser Peter Navarro.

GUNS …VIOLENCE & THE AMERICAN MYTH!

GUNS …VIOLENCE & THE AMERICAN MYTH!

Let me start with..I DO NOT OWN A GUN..PERIOD..I most certainly know how to use one.. would not have one in  my home but I grew up with a shotgun in my home.
Now the rest of the story….
In 1900 almost anyone could get a gun in this country..there were practically NO GUN LAWS…anywhere…You could get them from a catalogue…a store..almost any place your heart desired…with almost no questions asked ….and in 2018 the suicide rate per 100,000 in this country is approx 6x the rate it was in 1900…YEP…give that a little thought!
…AND…READY…the change in the “homicide rate” is  approximately the same…the same  in both cases…Yep…And we have gun laws today that would fill a phone book…and very large phone book!…and the homicide and suicide rates per hundred citizens  are approximately 6x greater than they were more than 100 yrs ago…
And life was much tougher in 1900 than it is today…for just about anyone living in this country…no matter the color of your skin or  where you came from or how much money you made!…And the noise..from the media..from the democrats…from the left……we need more gun laws!…and so I ask…what for???..It most obviously has accomplished NOTHING in reducing gun deaths in this country  in more than 100yrs…So exactly  where does all this lead?
Maybe…just maybe the root cause of all these absolutely senseless and horrible slaughters, Dayton…El Paso, etc .. is not guns or even the ease with which we can obtain  guns…Maybe It is the society we now live in!..maybe it is the rules of the society we now live in!..maybe the violent language that is so common….maybe it has something to do with the desensitizing of young people with all the violence we all are subject to in the media everyday!..Anyone seen a movie lately?
Gratuitous violence is everywhere, you cannot avoid it…video games?…everything around us…DEAD PEOPLE are ….well..just another “screen shot”…If the line is…this doesn’t affect people’s thinking were true…then ‘advertising” any product would be simply a waste of money…and we all know that IS NOT TRUE!
I have been in the media business for 50 years and let me tell you something..ADVERTISING WORKS..it MAKES IMPRESSIONS…IT SELLS! ..and so do all those images that are all around us.
The media hate this line of thinking…but they bear more responsibility than any group…movies…violent video games..it all impacts young people who think nothing of shooting people when they get older..just another “screen shot”..what’s the big deal?
We are not the violent society that the media and the left make us..the biggest slaughter of innocent  people by a gun happened in New Zealand…51 people…#2…in a school in the UK. in 1996, with 18 killed and 15 wounded…Excuse me..those places are not exactly noted for violence!..
We need to be honest about guns…and who uses them and who kills with them…and we need to stop blaming GUNS.

GUNS DO NOT KILL PEOPLE….PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE...Lets start dealing with the real problem..and it is NOT GUNS.

THERE IS NO OUTRAGE FROM THE DEMS, IT IS THE RHETORIC OF THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES AND PARTY MEMBERS LIKE AOC, EGGING ON ALL THESE THREATS TO ICE- NO ELSE!

Americans have always argued about how our government should be run and what actions it should take. For the most part, we’ve settled our difference with ballots and not bullets – the Civil War being the worst exception, when irreconcilable differences over the immoral institution of slavery tore our nation in two and claimed the lives of an estimated 620,000 Americans.
Today it seems like we’re fighting a small-scale civil war. Some angry people are claiming they have the right to harm and even kill others because of differences over political and public policy issues – or because they believe people belonging to particular racial, religious, ethnic or other group are somehow evil or inferior and must be attacked.
This is a poisonous attitude that is dangerous and un-American. Terrorism, murder and acts of violence are wrong whether they come from the right or the left. They should be condemned by all Americans and all our institutions, including government, political parties, religious institutions, and the media.
TOM HOMAN: TRUMP’S ABILITY TO PROTECT AMERICA STRENGTHENED BY SUPREME COURT RULING ON BORDER WALL
The horrific mass murders that recently killed 31 people in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas have been widely and appropriately condemned. Sick cowards committed these evil acts and there is absolutely no justification for their crimes.

Some Democratic presidential candidates and others in their party have wrongly blamed President Trump for creating a climate of hatred that encouraged the El Paso killings.
But the truth is that President Trump is simply doing his job by securing our border and enforcing existing laws. Congress can change those laws if it wants, and if enough lawmakers support new laws they can even override a presidential veto.  But presidents don’t have the right to simply ignore laws. Imagine the justified uproar, for example, if the president said he wasn’t going to enforce civil rights and anti-discrimination laws.  And the same anti-Trump media and Democratic politicians who seek to portray our current president as a racist who hates immigrants seldom mention that President Barack Obama deported a lot more illegal immigrants.
In 2012, for example, Obama deported nearly 410,000 people – a record. Last year President Trump deported just over 256,000 immigrants. In his eight years as president, Obama departed nearly 3 million.
As the former acting director of ICE, I know firsthand what it’s like when federal law enforcement officers are targeted with threats of violence by the far left.
It’s particularly disturbing that many of the same Democratic politicians, news organizations and other groups that justifiably condemned the El Paso shooter for his hate-filled diatribe against Hispanic people and his murderous rampage have failed to condemn the hate-filled diatribes and violence generated by extremist on the left. There should not be a double-standard.
Just last month a man attacked an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention facility in Washington state with a firearm and tried to set the building on fire. If he had succeeded, he could gave killed as many as several hundred people – ICE employees and hundreds of immigrants being detained for hearings.

Before attacking the ICE facility, the man is accused of sending a letter to friends that he titled a “written manifesto,” which detailed his motivation to “take action against the forces of evil” – specifically “fascism” and “concentration camps.”  Sound familiar? Authorities say the El Paso killer sent the same sort of manifesto, except he was a right-wing extremist, while the ICE attacker was a left-wing extremist.
As the former acting director of ICE, I know firsthand what it’s like when federal law enforcement officers are targeted with threats of violence by the far left.
Border Patrol Agents – along with their spouses and children – have been bullied and harassed at schools, churches and elsewhere because someone in their family chose to serve his or her country by joining the ranks of the Border Patrol.  ICE facilities and employees across the country are being threatened. There have been numerous social media posts about hurting ICE officers.
When I was acting director of ICE I had to deal with numerous death threats against my family and myself. At one point I had round-the-clock armed protection around my home for weeks.
An ICE facility last year was attacked and shut down by Antifa.
Just this week, another ICE office was attacked in San Antonio when someone shot out windows with a firearm. There were ICE employees in the building at the time.
The GEO Office in San Antonio was also damaged by gunfire. GEO is one of the companies that partners with law enforcement and ICE in managing detention facilities.
In addition to the threats of violence, we see elected officials at the local, state and national level calling the Border Patrol, ICE and anyone that enforces our immigration law Nazis, racists, and obscene names.  Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., has even called federal detention facilities for illegal immigrants “concentration camps,” as if they were no different than the death camps where the Nazis tortured and murdered millions of Jews and others.  And what have employees of the Border Patrol and ICE done to deserve both threats of violent attacks and verbal attacks from Democrats in Congress and the media? Like President Trump, President Obama and presidents before them, they have enforced the laws that Congress enacted.
But where is the outrage from the nearly two dozen Democrats seeking their party’s presidential nomination regarding the attacks noted above coming from left-wing extremists?  Where is the outrage by the media and by the Democratic leadership in Congress?  Here’s the bottom line: Hate is hate, terrorism is terrorism, and murder is murder. Politicians who condemn attacks on themselves and institutions and policies they support have an obligation to condemn such attacks on their opponents just as vigorously.
We must not let political campaigns go from a war of words to a war where people are being killed and wounded. One civil war was enough.
Thomas Homan, the former Acting Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), joined Fox News Channel as a contributor in August 2018.

Immigration update

By Mike Huckabee

The Trump Administration plans to impose a new immigration rule starting October 15th that would allow applicants to be turned away if they are deemed likely never to become permanent US residents who aren’t drawing so many welfare benefits that they would be classified as “public charges.”
Ken Cuccinelli, acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, announced the rule Tuesday with a suggested update to the poem by the Statute of Liberty: “Give me your tired and your poor who can stand on their own two feet and who will not become a public charge.” Cuccinelli said it “doesn’t seem like too much to ask, as we open our doors currently to more than a million new people a year, that they not become a burden on an already, frankly, overburdened and bankrupt welfare system.”
https://www.westernjournal.com/trump-admin-immigration-boss-presents-new-version-statue-liberty-poem/
I can understand the logic, although I would hope exceptions would be made for elderly and disabled refugees who are fleeing genuine danger in other nations (the kind for which the concept of “asylum” was intended.)  I wouldn’t bet the farm, though, on meeting that October 15th deadline.  Not while America has huddled masses of ACLU lawyers and liberal federal judges who think they run the immigration system.

According to the Crime Prevention Research Institute, he’s (Barack Obama) incorrect on both counts (or as liberals would say if he were Trump, “He’s LYYYYING!!!!”)

BARACK OBAMA: INCORRECT ON BOTH COUNTS

This is a must-read article if you ever find yourself faced with someone pressing the liberal cliché that (as former President Barack Obama put it in a recent statement) “no other nation on Earth comes close to experiencing the frequency of mass shootings that we see in the United States. No other developed nation tolerates the levels of gun violence that we do.”
According to the Crime Prevention Research Institute, he’s incorrect on both counts (or as liberals would say if he were Trump, “He’s LYYYYING!!!!”)
According to the Crime Prevention Research Institute, “The U.S. is well below the world average in terms of the number of mass public shootings, and the global increase over time has been much bigger than for the United States.”
A study of 97 nations that suffered measurable incidents of mass shootings found that between 1998 and 2015, the US ranked 64th in per capita frequency of mass shootings and 65th in the murder rate.  As you might expect, the worst were nations notorious for violence and unrest, such as Iraq, Afghanistan, and Nigeria.  But the US also came in below nations often cited as liberal utopias, such as Norway, Finland, France, and Switzerland. Incidentally, the first three of those four nations have very strict gun laws while it’s easy to get a gun in Switzerland, but they all outranked the US in mass shootings, showing that gun laws have little effect either way.
In addition, the US’s share of mass shootings declined over that time, while the rate of increase in mass shootings in the other 96 nations as a bloc was over twice as high as ours.  I’m sure people will point to the recent spate of shootings to claim there has been a huge jump since 2015, which would be easy to believe because of all the media coverage.  But in fact, in all of 2019, there have been a total of 62 deaths in the US from mass shootings.  The mass shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, alone killed 51.
None of this is meant to downplay the seriousness of the problem or the tragedy of the deaths and injuries.  As the linked article notes, one senseless death is too many.  Instead of pointing fingers and laying blame, we should all be talking and working together to find ways to prevent this from happening ever again.
But it doesn’t help the situation to libel America as a violent, gun-crazed wasteland where mass shootings are happening on every corner.  The first step to solving a problem is to identify the problem accurately, not mischaracterize it just so you can apply your favorite one-size-fits-all “solution” (more gun control laws) that hasn’t worked anywhere it’s been tried.
And yes, I know that many people point to Japan, which has very strict gun laws and almost no gun deaths.  But that glosses over both the Japanese culture factor and the fact that eliminating guns did not eliminate deadly mass attacks.  In 2016, 19 people were killed and 26 injured in a knife attack in Sagamihara.  Last May, two people were killed and 16 injured (including over a dozen school children) in a knife attack at a bus stop in Kawasaki.
It all points to a sad but inescapable conclusion: you can’t fight evil acts by banning the tools people use to perpetrate evil acts, because they’ll always find new tools or ways around the laws.  You have to identify the real problem: addressing the evil.

Epstein’s Death Raises Questions About Media
Within the last two weeks, the media has reached a fever-pitch in its coverage of President Trump. Not content to merely portray him as a racist and white supremacist, some in big media are deeming him a conspiracy theorist.
While this could be easily dismissed as the media picking on President Trump, it points to a much deeper handling of the media’s rather shallow reporting of conspiracy.
We’ll talk about that today on this episode of Analysis Behind the News.

Preserving the Second Amendment and Eliminating Red Flag Laws

Preserving the Second Amendment and Eliminating Red Flag Laws
Written by   Monday, 12 August 2019 18:53

With the recent mass shootings that have taken place in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, the political push for red flag laws are rapidly increasing. A number of Republican lawmakers and self-described “pro-Second Amendment” advocacy groups, including President Trump, are calling for immediate enactment of red flag laws.
To clarify, a red flag law is a politically divided gun control law that permits police or family members to petition a state court to order the temporary removal of firearms from a person who may present a danger to others or themselves without due process and facing their accusers in a court of law.
These red flag laws are unconstitutional and are a direct shot at our Second Amendment rights to keep and bear arms. Restricting and taking away our gun rights will not prevent these tragedies from happening. Just last week a gang member in California stabbed and killed four people and wounded two more. We must recognize that we have laws in place that restrict gun ownership and laws against murder, yet we still see murders committed. Laws, by definition, will not deter those determined to break the law.
It is understandable for the public to want to eliminate these mass tragedies from happening but the solution is not gun restrictions. In light of what has been happening, we must also remain educated on the good that firearms do for us. Bob Adelmann, writer for The New American, wrote an articlerecently showing incidents where firearms saved lives. If we let our emotions cloud our judgement we lose sight of the facts at hand. When these mass shootings happen, it is important that we stay educated on the facts and don’t react to our emotions to sway us to believe that gun restrictions will help solve this violence. As a nation we have yet to find a solution to prevent these mass tragedies from happening, but we do know one thing. The solution is not to take away our guns and our right to bear arms.
Preserving the Second Amendment and our God-given freedoms starts with you. The federal government will continue to assume powers that are undelegated, but state legislatures can use nullification based on Article VI in the Constitution, to declare unconstitutional federal laws null and void. Help to educate your state, community and elected officials on the importance of supporting our Second Amendment rights. The right to keep and bear arms must be protected if we wish to stay a free nation.

Special Ops Combat Veteran Runs To Flip Ariz. House Seat For GOP

Special Ops Combat Veteran Runs To Flip Ariz. House Seat For GOP

Neil W. McCabe, OAN Investigative Reporter — Washington, D.C.
UPDATED 7:00 AM PT — Tuesday, August 13, 2019
The sixth generation Arizonan, who is a firefighter and city councilor in his community, is running for House seat representing Arizona’s First Congressional District.  He told One America News his Army service in Afghanistan motivates him.
“I was in Urozgan Province for about eight months and then for my second deployment I was in Heret and Badghis provinces,” said Chris Taylor, who is running against Democrat Rep. Thomas C. O’Halleran. O’Halleran first won the seat in 2016. “I saw an extensive amount of combat over the 16 months that I was there–over 250 missions. I was in firefights all the time.”
Taylor said he is a second generation paratrooper and that his father saw combat in Vietnam. After Taylor earned his jump wings at Fort Benning, Georgia, he reported to the John F. Kennedy Special Operations School and Warfare Center at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, where he was trained to become a psychological warfare specialist. After his assignment to Special Operations Command, the Arizonan said he deployed twice to Afghanistan, first with Green Berets and then with Marine special operators.
“Most of the time to seek close contact we would go out on reconnaissance patrols–basically to get outside the wire and see who would attack us,” he said.
“The ways the rules of engagement were it was hard to go and pick fights, so we’d have to wait until we were attacked. Then, we would use overwhelming force to put the enemy to sleep,” he said.
Jon Johnson, who covers politics for the Gila Herald, said Taylor’s campaign comes as the state’s Republican Party is unwinding from years of internal conflict. “The problem is there is kinda different factions that have been going at it for quite some time–hard, hard right versus more centrist Republicans.”
Despite the factions in the party, Taylor has a good shot at taking the seat from O’Halleran, whose support is concentrated in Flagstaff and the Indian reservations, he said.
“I said in an article I wrote about him, he’s right out of central casting to be a Republican–the look they would love to have, good looking, nice head on his shoulders, someone who could bridge between the hard right, who vote for you if you have an R next to your name no matter what and the centrist guys,” Johnson said.
“He might bring over a lot of independent voter would otherwise vote Democrat,” he said.
As he goes around the district, Taylor said he keeps hearing from voters, especially from veterans, that they are frustrated with the lack of services for veterans in the rural district.
It is a problem he knows firsthand, he said.
“The number one issue for me that people always talk to me about is the level of care that our veterans are getting, particularly in rural area,” he said. “Living where I live I still have to drive two hours.”
With more than 58,000 square miles, Arizona-1 is the largest district in the state and the tenth largest district in the country.
Taylor said the incumbent does not understand the challenges of rural Arizona.
“Congressman O’Halleran is hurting the people of our district, because he doesn’t really know what it is to be a rural Arizona,” he said. “He’s from Chicago. He’s come here and tries to say he has our best interests, but we don’t have real representation in Congress.”
Taylor might be facing a two-term incumbent, but he is not doing it alone. He is getting support from local activists who were part of both the presidential campaigns of former Texas congressman Ron Paul and his Sen. Rand Paul (R.-Ky.)
