Chick-Fil-A Barred From San Antonio Airport Over ‘Anti-LBGTQ Behavior’

If Mayor Pendejoberg and his band of Mexico firsters on “city council”, are for something, it is usually Anti-America, Anti-Texican, Anti-moral, and more than likely illegal.

If they are against something, it is usually Pro-American, Pro-Texican, Moral and Legal.

My family will be going to Chick fil-A to give them some business.

Ron Paul Ravages ‘The Green Bad Deal’

As The Senate gears up to vote, as soon as today, on a motion to proceed on the Green New Deal – AOC’s broad climate-change bill that has divided Democrats, and which Republicans hope to use as a wedge issue in 2020, Ron Paul sees it for what it is…

The recently-proposed Green New Deal is proof that climate change is for progressive Democrats what terrorism is for neoconservative Republicans: a ready-made excuse to expand government and curtail liberty. This radical plan would authorize the US government to seize control of major sectors of the US economy, phase out gasoline-fueled cars, make buildings “energy efficient,” and even replace air travel with rail travel.

Supporters of the Green New Deal claim that the science regarding the risk of climate change is “settled.” However, the science is far from settled. Many of the claims regarding climate change have been debunked.

Some supporters of policies like the Green New Deal have actually supported criminalizing dissent from the so-called “settled” science of climate change. This reveals the authoritarianism of some people demanding Americans give up real liberty and prosperity because of phantom fears of impending environmental disaster.

Like all forms of socialism, the Green New Deal suffers from what Ludwig von Mises identified as the “calculation problem.” Knowledge of the most efficient use of resources is conveyed by prices set in a free market. Prices reflect individuals’ subjective preferences regarding the best use of resources. When government uses force to remove resources from the marketplace, it makes it impossible for the price system to function, leaving government officials and private citizens unable to determine the most efficient use of resources. That is why every attempt at government management of the economy inevitably reduces the people’s standard of living.

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has dismissed concerns regarding the almost 100 trillion dollars ten-year cost of implementing the Green New Deal by suggesting that Congress simply make the Federal Reserve pay for it by creating new money. Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s claim is rooted in Modern Monetary Theory. This theory states that, when government controls the currency, it need not worry about running up large debt for welfare and war; it can have the central bank print more money to pay for more government.

Modern Monetary Theory is not modern. The Federal Reserve has facilitated the growth of government by printing money since its creation. It is no coincidence the birth of the Federal Reserve was immediately followed by the rise of the welfare-warfare state.

Whether done to monetize the federal debt or to jump-start economic growth, the Federal Reserve’s creation of new money harms the economy. In fact, Fed-induced distortions, caused by actions including money creation and interest rate manipulation, are the root cause of the boom-and-bust cycle that plagues the American economy. The Green New Deal would, in addition to its other negative impacts, hasten and deepen the inevitable Federal Reserve-caused economic crisis facing America. It would also increase the hidden and regressive inflation tax.

Ironically, the Green New Deal also would likely damage the environment. History shows that the most effective way to protect the environment is with a free-market economy that respects property rights. Therefore, those concerned with protecting the environment should support the free market, along with a legal system that holds private property owners accountable when their actions damage the environment or harm other individuals or their property.

Alan “Israel Did 9/11” Sabrosky: Most Censored Man in America-Unz Review

Zionism can not survive with the Light of Truth shown on it.

Zionist MUST lie, cheat, hide facts, character assassinate truth tellers.

Otherwise the truth of the pure evil of zionism would become apparent to even the slowest, most cowardly sheep.

Then, there’d be a world wide zionist hunt.

Loony Times! Pompeo claims Trump is ‘working with God’ to save Israel from Iran

Trump was interviewed by Chris Mitchell of the Christian Broadcasting Network, who asked if Trump might be like the Old Testament’s Queen Esther, whom God helped to save the Jews thousands of years ago.

“As a Christian I certainly believe that’s possible,” Pompeo replied.

Pompeo, who was in Jerusalem to visit the Western Wall, said he was able to see during his visit “the work that our administration’s done to make sure that this democracy in the Middle East, that this Jewish state, remains.”

“I am confident that the Lord is at work here,” Pompeo added.

The Old Testament’s book of Esther details how the queen, who was Jewish, implored and successfully persuaded her husband the king of Persia to spare the Jewish people from genocide. Pompeo’s interview occurred the same day as the Jewish holiday Purim, which remembers how the Jewish people were rescued by Esther.

The Trump administration announced in 2017 that the U.S. would officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and the U.S. embassy in Israel moved in 2018 from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

On Thursday, Trump tweeted that “it is time for the United States to fully recognize Israel’s Sovereignty over the Golan Heights,” a move that was praised by Netanyahu as a “miracle.”

The Winds of March

The winds of March blew into him again the breath of life-
This world full of mountain tops and deepest valleys, filled with strife-

The lessons to be learned, new wonders to see-
As each new adventure in life is met with glee-

The ups and downs of fails, falls and wins-
Causes a new new man where there was an old, as nature blends-

Lessons from long ago along with the last one today-
Helps to keep the darkness of ignorance at bay-

As the winds of wars and peace blew him about-
He met it all head-on, a spirit stout-

In the knowledge of his ancestors before him who stood against the darkness blight-
Who helped the master to focus and reflect the Illumination of the Light-

He travels on down the road of life, this trickster game-
Contend to do his duty till ole friend death, again calls him by name.

The Ole Dog!

Iranian Parliament Asks UN Chief to Stop US Relocation of Terrorists from Syria to Afghanistan-Fans News

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian parliamentarians in a letter to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned of attempts by the US and certain regional states to transfer terrorists from Syria and Iraq to Afghanistan, calling for immediate measures by the international body to stop the dangerous move.
“Based on real and impartial information, the US administration and certain governments in Western Asia, which have traditional relations with Salafi terrorism, are transferring the terrorists and specially their defeated leaders from Syria and Iraq to Afghanistan,” Chairman of the Iranian parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh wrote in a letter to Guterres on Tuesday.

Falahatpisheh explained that he has written the letter as the representative of members of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission.

He underlined that the UN is expected to adopt the move through the formation of a fact-finding committee or sending special envoys to probe into the case, warning that the political geography of Salafi terrorism is changing.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani had also last Tuesday warned of Washington’s new plots against the regional states by relocating terrorists to Afghanistan and Central Asia.

“The problem of terrorism has not terminated yet, of course, and it is possible that the terrorists create problems for the regional people in different forms because the Americans have hatched a new plot against the region and are transferring the terrorists to Afghanistan, Central Asia and the Caucasus,” President Rouhani said, addressing the Iraqi elites, tribal leaders and religious leaders in Baghdad.

He noted that the regional nations with their resistance showed to the world that the arrogant powers are the main sponsors of the terrorists providing them with money and arms, and that they plunder the regional countries’ historical monuments and antiques and sell them in the market.

“Everyone is aware that the western powers have not played a role in annihilation of the terrorists and have only conducted theatrical operations with their planes and helicopters,” President Rouhani said.

Also, earlier this month, Lieutenant Commander of the Iranian Army’s Air Force Brigadier General Ali Shadmani warned China, Russia and other regional states of the US attempts to relocate the ISIL terrorists to Afghanistan.

“The enemy is today attempting to continue the same ISIL plot implemented in Iraq and Syria in Afghanistan and this will harm China, Russia and all the regional states,” General Shadmani said.

He noted that certain Arab rulers were supporting the US financially and logistically to transfer the ISIL to Afghanistan, saying that they were making their last-ditch efforts to attain their goals but they would not because the ISIL’s body had collapsed.

Also, late in January, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei expressed deep regret over the massacre of the Afghan people in terrorist attacks, blaming the US for the tragedies by transferring the ISIL terrorists to Afghanistan to guarantee its presence in the region.

“The US goal of transferring the ISIL terrorists to Afghanistan is justification of its continued deployment in the region and establishment of security for the Zionist regime,” Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing the Iranian seminaries in Tehran.

“The same hands which used the ISIL as a tool to oppress and commit crimes against the people in Syria and Iraq by its creation, is today after transferring the ISIL to Afghanistan after sustaining defeat in those regions, and the recent massacres are actually the start of this plot,” he added.

Ayatollah Khamenei said that the US-backed terrorists don’t differentiate between the Shiites and Sunnis, and added, “The US wants this region not to see good days and wants the regional governments and nations to be busy with their own affairs so that they don’t think of opposing the evil agent of arrogant powers that is Zionism.”

He described the United States’ other goal of creation of insecurity as justification of its presence in the region, and said, “The Americans, themselves, are the main cause for insecurity in Afghanistan and the killings in this region since 20 years ago under the name of religion were carried out, directly or indirectly, by the US agents, and they are now after guaranteeing their presence by fomenting insecurity and attaining their political and economic objectives.”

Earlier on December 26, Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani warned President Ashraf Ghani of ISIL’s relocation to Afghanistan.

“Enemies of the security and tranquility of the region in an organized move are after fomenting insecurity at the shared borders to transfer the defeated ISIL terrorists to Afghanistan and support the spread of Takfiri terrorism in the country to ignite the flames of war, bloodshed and insecurity in the region once again,” Shamkhani said during a meeting with the Afghan president in Kabul.

He cautioned that ignoring the threat could end up in re-experiencing the bitter incidents which happened in Iraq and Syria.

Shamkhani also described the US forces’ withdrawal from Afghanistan as a golden opportunity to strengthen the Asian country’s defense and military capabilities, and said, “The regional nations are counting each moment for a full withdrawal of the US forces as their deployment has resulted in nothing, but war and insecurity.”

The Growing Epidemic Of Cops Shooting Family Dogs

 

“In too much of policing today, officer safety has become the highest priority. It trumps the rights and safety of suspects. It trumps the rights and safety of bystanders. It’s so important, in fact, that an officer’s subjective fear of a minor wound from a dog bite is enough to justify using potentially lethal force, in this case at the expense of a 4-year-old girl. And this isn’t the first time. In January, an Iowa cop shot and killed a woman by mistake while trying to kill her dog. Other cops have shot other kidsother bystanderstheir partnerstheir supervisors and even themselves while firing their guns at a dog. That mind-set is then, of course, all the more problematic when it comes to using force against people.”—Journalist Radley Balko

The absurd cruelties of the American police state keep reaching newer heights.

Consider that if you kill a police dog, you could face a longer prison sentence than if you’d murdered someone or abused a child.

If a cop kills your dog, however, there will be little to no consequences for that officer.

Not even a slap on the wrist.

In this, as in so many instances of official misconduct by government officials, the courts have ruled that the cops have qualified immunity, a legal doctrine that incentivizes government officials to engage in lawless behavior without fear of repercussions.

This is the heartless, heartbreaking, hypocritical injustice that passes for law and order in America today.

It is estimated that a dog is shot by a police officer “every 98 minutes.”

The Department of Justice estimates that at least 25 dogs are killed by police every day.

The Puppycide Database Project estimates the number of dogs being killed by police to be closer to 500 dogs a day (which translates to 182,000 dogs a year).

In 1 out of 5 cases involving police shooting a family pet, a child was either in the police line of fire or in the immediate area of a shooting. For instance, a 4-year-old girl was accidentally shot in the leg after a police officer opened fire on a dog running towards him, missed and hit the little girl instead.

At a time when police are increasingly inclined to shoot first and ask questions later, it doesn’t take much to provoke a cop into opening fire on an unarmed person guilty of doing nothing more than standing a certain way, or moving a certain way, or holding something—anything—that police could misinterpret to be a weapon.

All a cop has to do is cite an alleged “fear” for his safety.

According to the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, all it takes for dogs to pose a sufficient threat to police to justify them opening fire is for the dog to move or bark.

Even in the absence of an actual threat, the perception of a threat is enough for qualified immunity to kick in and for the cop to be let off the hook for behavior that would get the rest of us jailed for life.

As journalist Radley Balko points out, “In too much of policing today, officer safety has become the highest priority. It trumps the rights and safety of suspects. It trumps the rights and safety of bystanders. It’s so important, in fact, that an officer’s subjective fear of a minor wound from a dog bite is enough to justify using potentially lethal force.”

The epidemic of cops shooting dogs takes this shameful behavior to a whole new level, though.

It doesn’t take much for a cop to shoot a dog.

Dogs shot and killed by police have been “guilty” of nothing more menacing than wagging their tails, barking in greeting, or merely being in their own yard.

For instance, Spike, a 70-pound pit bull, was shot by NYPD police when they encountered him in the hallway of an apartment building in the Bronx. Surveillance footage shows the dog, tail wagging, right before an officer shot him in the head at pointblank range.

Arzy, a 14-month-old Newfoundland, Labrador and golden retriever mix, was shot between the eyes by a Louisiana police officer. The dog had been secured on a four-foot leash at the time he was shot. An independent witness testified that the dog never gave the officer any provocation to shoot him.

Seven, a St. Bernard, was shot repeatedly by Connecticut police in the presence of the dog’s 12-year-old owner. Police, investigating an erroneous tip, had entered the property—without a warrant—where the dog and her owner had been playing in the backyard, causing the dog to give chase.

Dutchess, a 2-year-old rescue dog, was shot three times in the head by Florida police as she ran out her front door. The officer had been approaching the house to inform the residents that their car door was open when the dog bounded out to greet him.

Yanna, a 10-year-old boxer, was shot three times by Georgia police after they mistakenly entered the wrong home and opened fire, killing the dog, shooting the homeowner in the leg and wounding an investigating officer.

Payton, a 7-year-old black Labrador retriever, and 4-year-old Chase, also a black Lab, were shot and killed after a SWAT team mistakenly raided the mayor’s home while searching for drugs. Police shot Payton four times. Chase was shot twice, once from behind as he ran away. “My government blew through my doors and killed my dogs. They thought we were drug dealers, and we were treated as such. I don’t think they really ever considered that we weren’t,” recalls Mayor Cheye Calvo, who described being handcuffed and interrogated for hours—wearing only underwear and socks—surrounded by the dogs’ carcasses and pools of the dogs’ blood.

In another instance, a Missouri SWAT team raided a family home, killing a 4-year-old pit bull Kiya. Believe it or not, this time the SWAT raid wasn’t in pursuit of drugs, mistaken or otherwise, but was intended “to check if [the] home had electricity and natural gas service.”

A dog doesn’t even have to be an aggressive breed to be shot by a cop.

Balko has documented countless “dog shootings in which a police officer said he felt ‘threatened’ and had no choice but to use lethal force, including the killing of a Dalmatian (more than once), a yellow Lab , a springer spaniel, a chocolate Lab, a boxer, an Australian cattle dog, a Wheaten terrier, an Akita… a Jack Russell terrier… a 12-pound miniature dachshund… [and] a five-pound chihuahua.”

Chihuahuas, among the smallest breed of dog (known as “purse” dogs), seem to really push cops over the edge.

In Arkansas, for example, a sheriff’s deputy shot an “aggressive” chihuahua for barking repeatedly. The dog, Reese’s, required surgery for a shattered jaw and a feeding tube to eat.

Same thing happened in Texas, except Trixie—who was on the other side of a fence from the officer—didn’t survive the shooting.

Let’s put this in perspective, shall we?

We’re being asked to believe that a police officer, fully armed, trained in combat and equipped to deal with the worst case scenario when it comes to violence, is so threatened by a yipping purse dog weighing less than 10 pounds that the only recourse is to shoot the dog?

If this is the temperament of police officers bred by the police state, we should all be worried.
