Biden Regime ARRESTS GOLD STAR DAD For Speaking Out During State of the Union Address

Fri, 03/08/2024 - 13:00

Among the other surreal moments during the Biden regimes State of the Union address (full coverage here), the one most illustrative of the vicious, corrupt  was the arrest of a Gold Star dad who spoke in memory of his dead son killed in Biden’s massive Afghanistan cock-up.

This isn’t two-tiereed justice. It’s no justice at all.

Just moments prior, pro-terror Jew haters protested and blocked Biden’s motorcade as it made it’s way to the  to the US Capitol to give his State of the Union address.

Welcome to Democrat America. The Democrats won’t arrest the Nazis that shut down cities, highways, attack federal buildings destroy statues, violently attack Jewish students, call for the death of the Jews but the President can arrest a Gold Star dad in mourning.

White House Announces There Will Be 2 “INTERMISSIONS” During Tonight’s State of the Union

Thu, 03/07/2024 - 21:08

You can’t make this stuff up.

Biden needs two intermissions to get through tonight’s State of the Union address. What for? A diaper change? A shot of formaldehyde?

America is falling off a cliff. But, no worries, the media incessantly reports that everything is just fabulous.

For the first time in history there’s an intermission during SOTU, treasonous Pedo Joe can’t walk can’t talk and the world is laughing at us

Judge Strikes Down Biden’s Discriminatory DEI Business Program

Thu, 03/07/2024 - 14:56

DEI is the very definition of discrimination, racism, and special rights for designated classes. Best described as “the lowest, most crudely primitive form of collectivism.” (Ayn Rand)

The judge wrote. “Yesterday is not ours to recover, but tomorrow is ours to win or lose.”

Rand had choice words:

Racial quotas have been one of the worst evils of racist regimes. There were racial quotas in the universities of Czarist Russia, in the population of Russia’s major cities, etc. One of the accusations against the racists in this country is that some schools practice a secret system of racial quotas. It was regarded as a victory for justice when employment questionnaires ceased to inquire about an applicant’s race or religion.

Today, it is not an oppressor, but an oppressed minority group that is demanding the establishment of racial quotas.

“Racism is the lowest, most crudely primitive form of collectivism. It is the notion of ascribing moral, social or political significance to a man’s genetic lineage—the notion that a man’s intellectual and characterological traits are produced and transmitted by his internal body chemistry. Which means, in practice, that a man is to be judged, not by his own character and actions, but by the characters and actions of a collective of ancestors.”

Judge Nukes Biden’s Discriminatory DEI Business Program

By: M.D. Kittle, The Federalist, March 07, 2024:

n a huge victory against the racist diversity, equity, and inclusion agenda, a federal judge has ruled the Biden administration’s Minority Business Development Agency has long violated the Constitution’s equal protection guarantees by punishing “disfavored” groups — in this case white small business owners.

In his ruling, U.S. District Court Judge Mark Pittman for the Northern District of Texas likened the agency’s use of race-based criteria in awarding taxpayer-funded assistance to the discriminatory actions of 19th-century American businesses that hung “Irish Need Not Apply” signs or “Blacks Need Not Apply” placards during the Jim Crow era.

“The MBDA advertises services exclusively for some races but not others,” the judge wrote in his decision. “While the Agency’s work may help alleviate opportunity gaps faced by MBEs [minority business enterprises], two wrongs do not make a right. And the MBDA’s racial presumption is a wrong.”

Pittman granted summary judgment for two of the three plaintiffs and issued a permanent injunction barring the federal government from using the agency to award benefits based on race.

The lawsuit was filed last year by the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty on behalf of three entrepreneurs from Florida, Texas, and Wisconsin who sought assistance from the Minority Business Development Agency.

Democrat Tool Nikki Haley Suspends Her Campaign

Wed, 03/06/2024 - 14:12

She never had a shred of a shot. Haley was a Democrat operative pulling funding and resources away from President Trump. More than that, the Trump ankle-biter was assured constant media promotion.

Trump Sweeps Super Tuesday

Nikki Haley Will Suspend Her Campaign, Leaving Donald Trump as the Last Major Republican Candidate

By: NY Sun, March 6, 2024:

Governor Haley will suspend her presidential campaign Wednesday after being soundly defeated across the country on Super Tuesday, according to people familiar with her decision, leaving President Trump as the last remaining major candidate for the 2024 Republican nomination.

Three people with direct knowledge who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to speak publicly confirmed Haley’s decision ahead of an announcement by her scheduled for Wednesday morning.

Mrs. Haley is not planning to endorse Mr. Trump in her announcement, according to the people with knowledge of her plans. Instead, she is expected to encourage him to earn the support of the coalition of moderate Republicans and independent voters who supported her.

Mrs. Haley, a former South Carolina governor and U.N. ambassador, was Mr. Trump’s first significant rival when she jumped into the race in February 2023. She spent the final phase of her campaign aggressively warning the GOP against embracing Mr. Trump, whom she argued was too consumed by chaos and personal grievance to defeat President Biden in the general election.

Her departure clears Mr. Trump to focus solely on his likely rematch in November with Mr. Biden. The former president is on track to reach the necessary 1,215 delegates to clinch the Republican nomination later this month.

Mrs. Haley’s defeat marks a painful, if predictable, blow to those voters, donors and Republican Party officials who opposed Mr. Trump and his fiery brand of “Make America Great Again” politics.

She was especially popular among moderates and college-educated voters, constituencies that will likely play a pivotal role in the general election. It’s unclear whether Mr. Trump, who recently declared that Mrs. Haley donors would be permanently banned from his movement, can ultimately unify a deeply divided party.

BRUTAL: Biden Regime Campaigns on Forcing Israel’s Immediate Surrender Pandering to the Jihad Vote

— Citizen Free Press (@CitizenFreePres) March 3, 2024

(JTA) — Vice President Kamala Harris called for an “immediate ceasefire” in Gaza and placed most of the onus on Israel for a shortfall in humanitarian aid entering the enclave.

The call for a cessation of fighting was not actually a change in the U.S. position on the war. In her speech, at a civil rights-focused event on Sunday in Birmingham, Alabama, Harris made clear that she was not referring to a permanent ceasefire, which progressive activists have advocated for months.

Rather, she was voicing support for the current Israeli-backed proposal, via negotiations, for a six-week truce. Harris placed the onus on Hamas to accept the terms of the deal, which would see the release of some of the Israeli hostages it is holding.

“Given the immense scale of suffering in Gaza, there must be an immediate ceasefire for at least the next six weeks, which is what is currently on the table,” Harris said. “Hamas claims it wants a ceasefire. Well, there is a deal on the table. And as we have said, Hamas needs to agree to that deal.”

But Harris’ use of the term “immediate ceasefire” marked a shift of sorts in the Biden administration’s language. Last week, President Joe Biden spoke of a “temporary ceasefire,” and National Security Council spokesman John Kirby told the New Yorker, “We still don’t support a general ceasefire that would leave Hamas in charge. What we do support is a temporary ceasefire, to get these hostages out and get the aid in.”

The administration has thus far staunchly supported the war, which began when Hamas invaded Israel on Oct. 7, killing some 1,200 and taking more than 250 hostages. But recently, the Biden administration has expressed increasing frustration with Israel. Biden has said that Israel’s conduct in Gaza was “over the top” and has pressed Israel to allow in more humanitarian aid.

Increasing U.S. disapproval of Israel is also evident in polling. Gallup reported on Monday that Israel’s favorability among Americans had dropped from 68% a year ago to 58% today, which the polling agency called “the lowest favorable rating for Israel in over two decades.” The phone poll of more than 1,000 adults, taken in February, has a margin of error of 4%.

Harris’ speech — at an event in Birmingham marking the 59th anniversary of Bloody Sunday, when state troopers on the Edmund Pettus Bridge violently repressed peaceful civil rights marchers — came following a campaign last week to protest Biden’s Israel police got 100,000 voters to vote “uncommitted” in the Michigan Democratic presidential primary.

How The Democrats Destroyed the American Legal System

How To Destroy the American Legal System

By either listening to testimonies or reading transcripts of the various 2024 Trump election-related court cases and testimonies, what we are left with is an epidemic of lies.

1) Hunter Biden’s current testimonies are contradicted by his own text messages, bank records, phone records, and testimonies of some of his associates. Anytime he is trapped in inconsistencies, he falls back on his addiction. Translated, that means we are sometimes supposed to believe he is a Yale-trained lawyer, experienced corporate grandee, and skilled negotiator, and thus carefully avoided involving his father in the family’s various schemes. And then again, sometimes when the evidence is damning and overwhelming, he simply cannot remember, or claims he was addled at the time in question due to his medical “addiction”.

2) In the Georgia Trump case, lawyers Terence Bradley, Nathan Wade, and Prosecutor Fani Willis all testified under oath to events that are contradicted by either prior other witness testimonies, or their own previous statements, or electronic phone records, and thus, to square the record, either have claimed amnesia, ignorance, or larger racist forces at work. Two of the three are leading the effort to indict a former president and current leading candidate for the presidency on a racketeering charge never before used in a Georgia election interference case, and to be tried by prosecutors who have either zero experience in felony criminal cases or no experience in racketeering cases or both.

3) Letitia James, the New York Attorney General, ran for office on promises to use her office to go after Donald Trump. She used an obscure consumer fraud law to claim Trump overvalued assets to obtain a loan that was paid back with interest and on time to a bank that audited his financial statement prior to the loan and had zero complaints about its profitable loan after it was paid off. Trump now is fined $355 million for a crime that has no victim, and has lost control of his New York businesses to a court-appointed judge. No one in New York history has ever been tried under this statute for allegedly exaggerating assets to get a loan that was paid back and over which the lending agency had no complaints.

4) Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg also boasted in his campaign for office he would go after Donald Trump. He is trying Trump on multiple felonies in a state court surrounding a supposed campaign finance violation over a nondisclosure agreement that the proper federal attorneys earlier felt did not merit prosecution.

5) Special Prosecutor Jack Smith is trying Trump for removing classified files to his estate at Mar-a-Lago. Note that twin special prosecutor Robert Hur found that President Biden also removed classified files to more and less secure residences for far longer (over 30 years) but as a senator and Vice President without Trump’s statutory presidential authority to declassify such documents. Biden admitted in 2017 he possessed such classified files and yet knowingly waited years to notify authorities. He did so only on the expectation that prosecutor Smith would soon indict Trump for the same alleged crime. Smith is also trying Trump on “insurrectionary” conduct despite Trump never having been charged in the prior three years by any federal or state authority for such an offense.

6) E. Jean Carrol (won $83.3 million in a “defamation” civil suit against Trump) won her case despite: 1) having no idea what year the alleged sexual assault took place some 30 years ago; 2) claiming she remembered the assault by the designer dress she wore that did not exist at the time; 3) advancing a narrative of events nearly identical to an episode of Law and Order that aired in 2012; 4) tweeting roughly two decades later that her supposed assailant’s TV show The Apprentice was one of her favorites; 5) her ELLE editor denying Carroll was fired from the magazine due to the Carroll-Trump dispute; 6) creating an app about how to break up couples through various machinations; 7) refiling her case beyond the statute of limitations, but only once a leftwing New York legislator strangely passed a bill allowing claimants of sexual abuse to have a one time, one year window to refile beyond the statute of limitations.

7) Blue or purple states such as Colorado, Illinois, and Maine are currently all attempting to remove Donald Trump from their presidential ballots on allegations of insurrectionary activity despite the fact he has never been convicted of any such charge and there is no precedent for such presidential disqualification.

8) Note the following: All the prosecutors, and litigants are either Democratic partisans or liberals. The trials have and will take place largely in Atlanta, New York, or Washington among leftwing prosecutors, judges, and jury pools. The majority of the charges and suits—the various states’ misuse of 14th Amendment, Bragg’s bootstrapping a state indictment onto a federal charge, James’s contortion of using a consumer fraud law to try Trump for a crime without a victim, Willis’s misuse of a racketeering statute to concoct an election interference charge, Carroll refiling once a leftwing jurist passed a special law that allowed her to do so postfacto, Smith’s effort to indict a president for insurrection and removing classified files—have either never been used before in these ways, or are in the wrong jurisdiction, or could equally apply to Democratic targets such as Joe Biden (found culpable by a special counsel but exempt by cognitive disability, named in various testimonies and texts as recipient of illicit foreign payments, accused of prior sexual assault), Hillary Clinton (fined for campaign finance violations), or Barack Obama (fined for campaign finance violations).

So what is the reason for all this lying, these legal contortions, and egregious prosecutor and judicial misbehavior?

Five simple facts alone:

1) The Left both fears and detests Donald Trump.

2) Donald Trump chose to run for the presidency in 2024.

3) Donald Trump is not a man of the Left.

4) Donald Trump is currently ahead of Joe Biden in both national polls and in the majority of swing state polls.

5) The Left feels barring Trump from the presidency is worth destroying 235 years of American jurisprudence.

VICTORY: Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Trump to Stay on Ballot, Reverses Colorado

Mon, 03/04/2024 - 15:05

One state, a rouge blue state, no less, cannot decide for the whole of country who we can vote for.

The U.S. Supreme Court issued their ruling on the case that sought to bar former President Donald Trump from appearing on primary and general election ballots for the 2024 presidential election.

The Supreme Court delivered a unanimous opinion on the Colorado ballot ruling.

The Supreme Court’s decision applies to ballots in all states. Several states had similar lawsuits challenging Trump’s eligibility to appear on their election ballots (NBC News)

  • The Supreme Court has ruled in former President Donald Trump’s favor, saying Colorado erred when he was removed from the ballot.
  • Colorado holds primary votes on Tuesday, but Trump’s name remained on the ballot while the case was being litigated.

Epoch Times: The Supreme Court, in an unusual Sunday update to its schedule, didn’t specify what ruling it would issue. However, the justices on Feb. 8 heard arguments in the former president’s appeal of a ruling in Colorado and are due to issue their own decision.

The March 3 announcement said the opinion would be posted online at 10 a.m. Washington time. “The court will not take the bench,” it only said on its website.

Late last year, the Colorado Supreme Court ruled that President Trump is disqualified from appearing on ballots in Colorado, citing an interpretation of the U.S. Constitution’s 14th Amendment provision that stipulates that candidates who engaged in an “insurrection or rebellion” against the United States should be prevented from holding office. Maine’s Democratic secretary of state made a similar decision days later, and a judge in Illinois recently issued a similar ruling to prevent his appearance on ballots.

The amendment was drafted more than 150 years ago, after the Civil War, and the court was the first to invoke it. However, that ruling and the two others are on hold pending the Supreme Court decision.

Update 10:30 am: Daily Caller:

he Supreme Court ruled Monday that former President Donald Trump cannot be removed from Colorado’s 2024 ballot.

The Colorado Supreme Court found Trump ineligible for the state’s ballot in December, ruling he was disqualified under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment. The Civil-war era provision bars individuals who took an oath to the Constitution and then “engaged in insurrection” from holding office.

“Because the Constitution makes Congress, rather than the States, responsible for enforcing Section 3 against federal officeholders and candidates, we reverse,” the court’s ruling stated.

A group of Colorado voters, backed by the left-wing group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, sued to remove Trump in September, arguing his role in “recruiting, inciting and encouraging a violent mob” on Jan. 6, 2021 was disqualifying. Maine and, just last week, Illinois, followed by also finding Trump ineligible.

Over 60 challenges have been filed in various states challenging Trump’s eligibility for the ballot, according to court documents.

Iran-Backed Houthis Sink British Cargo Vessel in Red Sea

Mon, 03/04/2024 - 15:00

The Islamic/leftwing axis cheers these barbarians.
Washington Post: A British cargo ship sank in the Red Sea after an attack by Houthi militants, taking some 21,000 metric tons of fertilizer down with it, posing a significant environmental risk to one of the world’s busiest waterways and the home of many coral reefs. The Rubymar was struck by an anti-ballistic missile fired by the Iranian-backed Houthis on Feb. 18 and sank early Saturday after “slowly taking on water” since the attack (Washington Post).

Times of Israel: The Houthis have held Yemen’s capital, Sana’a, since 2014, expelling the government. It has fought a Saudi-led coalition since 2015 in a stalemated war. Since November, the rebels have repeatedly targeted ships in the Red Sea and surrounding waters over the Israel-Hamas war. Those vessels have included at least one with cargo bound for Iran, the Houthis’ main benefactor, and an aid ship later bound for Houthi-controlled territory (Times of Israel).

MASSIVE BRAWL: 600 Teens Riot at Six Flags in Georgia

Police shoot 1 suspect in gunfight outside Six Flags Over Georgia after massive brawl breaks out on opening day

ByNicholas McEntyre, NY POst, March 3, 2024:

One person was shot during a gunfight with police outside of Six Flags Over Georgia, just after an “unruly” crowd of people sparked a massive brawl during the park’s opening day on Saturday.

Cobb County Police responded to the amusement park just outside of Atlanta around 6 p.m. — two hours before the park closed — to help deal with a crowd fighting and causing problems inside the gates.

“A sizeable unruly crowd” of approximately 500 to 600 guests were “running through the park and fighting,” the Cobb County Police said in a statement to WSB-TV.

Social media footage obtained by Fox 5 Atlanta captured nearly a dozen people kicking and punching a person on the ground before several ran away, leaving the beaten-up individual lying motionless.

An unknown number of suspects fired shots at police as security pushed the crowd out of the park.

The officers reportedly fired back, striking one person.

The individual, whose condition is not known, was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital in Downtown Atlanta, approximately 11 miles east of the shooting.

The park confirmed the shooting but said it did not occur on Six Flags property.

“There was police activity involving gunshots; we want to confirm there was no shooting at our property or parking lot,” the statement obtained by the outlet read. “This took place on South Service Road that is not owned or operated by Six Flags.”

“However, we join our community and the Atlanta region in our commitment to safety and security. We won’t put up with that type of activity here.”

Biden’s Border Invasion Will Inflate Democrats’ Electoral College Majority

Mon, 03/04/2024 - 14:00

The hostile invasion by illegals (or as the Democrats call them, ‘newcomers’) is by design. It’s about seizing and keeping pwoer absolutely.

Biden’s Border Invasion Will Bolster Democrats’ Electoral College Majority

By: Dawn Buckingham, The Federalist, March 04, 2024

Democrats don’t care about public safety. They only care about securing more Electoral College votes and amassing power.

At noon on Jan. 20, 2021, President Biden took the oath of office. What do you think he did in his first 12 hours? He signed an executive order titled “Executive Order on Ensuring a Lawful and Accurate Enumeration and Apportionment Pursuant to the Decennial Census.” That is government speak for directing the Census Bureau to count all illegal aliens when the census is taken.

Every 10 years, when the census is conducted, the population numbers are used to redraw congressional district lines so that they generally have the same amount of people in each district across the country. The more people counted, the more congressional seats a state receives. So if you are a state like California losing population, you lose seats in Congress. If you gain population, like Texas, you gain congressional seats. The number of congressional seats also directly relates to the number of electors each state can send to the Electoral College. More population equals more congressional seats. More congressional seats equal more votes in the Electoral College.

To the Democrats, this is simple math — sovereignty and public safety be damned. I’ve listened to many Texans ask in exasperation: When will enough be enough? When will there be enough illegal immigration, enough crime, and enough handouts of “free” phones, plane tickets, hotels, and cash for noncitizens who enter this country illegally? Is it 7 million more or maybe 20 million more? I believe the answer to that question is 270. That is the number of electoral votes required to win the presidency in the Electoral College.

The crisis at the border is not an accident, nor is it a confluence of outside factors resulting in unchecked illegal immigration. Instead, it is planned and facilitated by the Democrats in Washington, D.C., to bolster failing blue states, increase their representation in Congress, and cement a permanent majority in the Electoral College. Many reasonable Texans wonder why anyone would want a sanctuary city or sanctuary state. The logic becomes more obvious once you understand the end game: to create a welcoming enclave free from consequences, flaunt the law, refuse to cooperate with law enforcement, and swell a population dependent on the state. Then count everyone, citizen and noncitizen alike, to amass power.

Does this sound crazy? Is the government capable of executing such a plan, or are they simply incompetent? Usually, the simplest answer is the right one, so incompetence could be a reasonable answer. Still, there is no denying that Democrats are aware of the power of counting illegal aliens in the census.

Historic Business Remington Flees New York For Georgia After 200 Years

Mon, 03/04/2024 - 13:08

Remington is leaving Ilion, N.Y., ‘after two centuries, abandoning upstate for a gleaming new factory in Georgia. With it goes the village’s identity.’  so wrote the New York Times.

NY village ‘losing its soul’ as nation’s oldest gun manufacturer flees blue state for Georgia

Remington is the nation’s oldest gun manufacturer

“Two hundred and eight years of history. Gone, gone,” Ilion, New York, Mayor John P. Stephens told The New York Times. “Ilion is Remington. Remington is Ilion.”

“Two hundred and eight years of history. Gone, gone,” Ilion, New York, Mayor John P. Stephens told The New York Times. “Ilion is Remington. Remington is Ilion.”

Remington, the nation’s oldest gun manufacturer, told union officials late last year that company chiefs at RemArms, the current version of Remington Arms, made the decision to end its New York manufacturing come March. The remaining operations located in Ilion will move to Georgia, where company leaders say the firearms industry is supported and welcomed.

Residents of the New York village, which is located roughly 230 miles northwest of New York City, are bracing for the manufacturer to officially move, which some say will take part of the town’s identity with it.

“When Remington leaves, it’s not going to be like a facility leaving, it’s going to be like part of your family has moved off,” Jim Conover, a retired Remington employee who began his career there in 1964, told The Associated Press.

A furnace operator and technician at the factory, Frank “Rusty” Brown, told the outlet that he and generations of his family worked at the facility and noted he and his wife will be out of jobs.

“My mom worked there. My dad worked there. My wife works there with me now. My daughter works there with me now. My second daughter works there with me now. And my son-in-law works there,” Brown said. “So it’s a double-hit for me and my wife: two of us out of a job.”

The closure of the New York location will result in about 300 people losing their jobs in a town of roughly 7,600. The mayor of Ilion told the Daily Mail that the village is expected to lose $1 million in revenue due to the move, in addition to other local businesses taking a financial hit.

”It’s like the town is losing its soul. It’s almost like losing a family member. That’s the thing that people are struggling with, the nostalgia, the history. It feels like we are losing the identity of the town,” Stephens told the outlet.

A Showdown on the Freedom of Speech in Europe

Sun, 03/03/2024 - 18:00

Will Europe embrace and defend the freedom of expression or blasphemy laws? And once Europe makes its choice, what will the United States of America do in turn about the same issue? The showdown is coming in Europe, and it’s coming quickly. Sweden has ordered Salwan Momika, an Iraqi freedom fighter who has burned the Qur’an in protest against the violence does in its name and in accord with its teachings, and to stand for the freedom of expression. On Friday, he stated his case on X. Will he be heeded?

Morocco World News reported back on February 8 that “Sweden is set to deport Salwan Momika, the controversial man behind last year’s Quran-burning protests, as local reports indicate that a Swedish court has upheld the deportation order against the controversial man.” On Friday, Momika wrote: “My extradition to Iraq means that Sweden will participate in my execution, and that it will be the turn of the rest of those who stand against the Islamization of the West.” Exactly so. But does anyone Sweden or elsewhere in the West care?

Momika added: “The persecution I am subjected to in Sweden is tantamount to defending Islam and supporting the project of Islamizing Sweden and the West, granting asylum and protecting Islamists, and while those who criticize Islam are expelled and persecuted, this means that the law on freedom of expression is in real danger and Islamic values ​​may be imposed on Western societies and the application of Sharia law. Islamism will inevitably come to them unless we take action.” Well, it’s quite clear that the laws on freedom of expression are indeed in danger. If they weren’t, Momika wouldn’t be facing deportation; he would be being feted and lionized as a hero in Sweden.

If Momika is forced to return to Iraq, he will almost certainly be killed, as he himself explained: “I am in a humanitarian and moral struggle against the @Migrationsverk and Muslims, and I need your solidarity with me. If Sweden does not want me to stay here, then give me guarantees that your authorities will not demand me if I seek asylum in another country, and provide me with protection to reach another country because I cannot travel because Iraq has previously issued an international arrest warrant against me and distributed it to the international police.” He concluded: “How can the Swedes be so calm when Sweden is being Islamized before their eyes? What would you say to future generations? Will you tell them that one day an Assyrian came and told us about Islam and warned of its dangers while we handed him over to Iraq to be killed?

Swedes and other non-Muslims in the West can be so calm because they have no idea what’s at stake, or what’s coming. Momika has been trying to tell them. Back in June 2023, he explained why he wanted to burn the Qur’an in the first place: “I want to protest in front of the large mosque in Stockholm, and I want to express my opinion about the Quran… I will tear up and burn it.” He added: “This is democracy. It is in danger if they tell us we can’t do this.” Indeed. And now that danger has come to pass in the form of the deportation order against Momika. If a man can be expelled from Sweden for defending the freedom of expression, then the freedom of expression is no longer permitted in Sweden.

That’s what the 56-nation (plus the Palestinian Authority) Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) wants Sweden, and the West in general, to do: abandon the freedom of expression and adopt Sharia blasphemy restrictions. Reuters reported in early July 2023 that OIC Secretary-General Hissein Brahim Taha called for Western countries to ban Qur’an burning using laws against hate speech: “We must send constant reminders to the international community regarding the urgent application of international law, which clearly prohibits any advocacy of religious hatred.” This was an unmistakable indication of how “hate speech” laws can be weaponized to compel Western countries to abandon the freedom of expression and submit to Sharia blasphemy laws.

Salwan Momika is in serious danger, and so is the freedom of expression. Given the fact that the Western political and media elites already have a well-established admiration for authoritarianism and distaste for the freedom of speech, can the acceptance of the OIC’s demands be long in coming?

CDC Finally Admits COVID Is Basically Like Flu

They shut down our country, stole the election, and forced poisonous vaccines. and fired untold thousands from the private and public sectors, the military for exercising their individual right to personal liberty.

Covid: Treat it More Like the Flu, New CDC Guidance Suggests – Wall Street Journal

Fired Covid Nurse Goes Public, Exposes Mass Vaccine Deaths

Four Years Late, CDC Admits COVID Is Basically Like Flu

By: Catherine Salgado PJM, March 02, 2024:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) just quietly updated its Covid-19 guidance to tell Americans essentially to act as if the virus were the common flu. All of us “conspiracy theorists” who said the same thing back in February 2020 would like an apology.

Ironically, the CDC’s new guidance from March 1 not only recommends good hygiene and vaccination (despite evidence of the COVID vaccine’s serious risks), it recommends “cleaner air” and “gathering outdoors.” Do you remember how many people obediently stayed locked inside or took their walks with masks on during the height of COVID thanks to scare tactics from government agencies such as the CDC? Turns out the age-old tactic of getting fresh air and washing your hands really is the best protection against COVID-19. From the CDC:

CDC released today updated recommendations for how people can protect themselves and their communities from respiratory viruses, including COVID-19. The new guidance brings a unified approach to addressing risks from a range of common respiratory viral illnesses, such as COVID-19, flu, and RSV, which can cause significant health impacts and strain on hospitals and health care workers. CDC is making updates to the recommendations now because the U.S. is seeing far fewer hospitalizations and deaths associated with COVID-19 and because we have more tools than ever to combat flu, COVID, and RSV.

Other outlets also noticed the switch in rhetoric. “CDC ditches 5-day COVID isolation, argues COVID is becoming flu-like,” Ars Technica reported. “It’s Official: We Can Pretty Much Treat Covid Like the Flu Now. Here’s a Guide,” was Wall Street Journal’s headline. Thank goodness WSJ humbly waited for the CDC to tell them that.

As a brand-new journalist at the start of 2020, I was easily able to hunt down data indicating COVID-19 had about a 99% survival rate for most age groups. Other people did not even need to do research; they just used their powers of observation and common sense to know that COVID-19 basically operated like a bad case of the flu. Those of us who had access to therapeutics like ivermectin recovered more quickly from COVID-19 that we ever had from the flu. Yes, there were areas like nursing homes where many people died, but that is primarily because the proper care was not provided. Ultimately, COVID-19 was not dangerous because it was so deadly; it was dangerous because our political and health authorities made all of the wrong decisions at every step of the way.

When do we get apologies for all the people, especially young people, who committed suicide or did not receive lifesaving healthcare because of COVID restrictions? Where will be the recompense for the lost jobs, scholarships, internships, retirements, school years, graduations, vacations, and all the other necessary or otherwise important functions of life? Will individuals who hysterically drove people out of stores for not having masks or fired employees for not being vaccinated ever admit they were terribly wrong? Our economy was wrecked, our country divided, our rights blatantly violated, and people’s lives permanently damaged by foolish COVID-19 restrictions, which did far more harm than good.

Trump scores Saturday GOP caucus trifecta, with victory in Idaho after Michigan, Missouri wins

By Diana Glebova and Katherine Donlevy, NY Post, March 2, 2024:

Former President Donald Trump racked up a hat trick of Republican caucus wins, as he was declared the winner in the Idaho caucus Saturday night after winning similar victories in Michigan and Missouri earlier in the day.

The wins brough Trump one step closer to sweeping the map and securing the 2024 GOP nomination over his sole remaining challenger Nikki Haley — who has vowed to stay in at least through next week’s 15 Super Tuesday contests.

Trump has defeated Haley in every single primary and caucus thus far, with Haley failing to even get within single digits of her rival. After his wins he took a shot a the person who would likely be his general election foe, President Joe Biden.

“This is getting to be pretty wild and it’s a great honor. We have to let them know we’re coming for him. We’re coming on November 5 Joe, crooked, sleepy, Joe,” Trump said Friday at the “Get Out the Vote” rally at the Greater Richmond Convention Center in Richmond, Virginia.

Belgian MEP is Reprimanded for Mentioning the ‘Great Replacement’ of Europe’s Population

Sun, 03/03/2024 - 15:01

An MEP from Belgium, Tom Vandendriessche, has spoken out about the Muslim migrant menace: “Belgian MEP reprimanded by EU chiefs for calling mass migration policy ‘organized repopulation’ of native Europeans,” by Thomas Brooke, Remix News, February 20, 2024:

“These are [EU Commissioner Ylva Johansson]’s literal words: ‘We need migration’,” Vandendriessche said of the comments on Jan. 16.

“She wants to bring an additional 1 million migrants to Europe, on top of the many millions we already have.

“In doing so, she wants to combat the aging of Europe’s shrinking population. So she literally wants non-European peoples to replace shrinking European peoples.

“That is, by definition, replacement migration, a synonym for repopulation,” the Belgian MEP added.

Having noted the decline in Europe’s indigenous population, and the need to replace it by at least “one million immigrants” a year, Johansson says nothing about alternatives. For example, she failed to consider how the peoples of Europe could adopt pro-natalist policies to increase the indigenous populations in their countries. For example, European governments could provide much longer paid maternity and even paternity leaves, free creches for infants and toddlers, for infants, and provide great increases in family allowances for every child after the first two. These benefits would only be made available to families whose members have been citizens of the country for at least two generations. This would prevent recent immigrants — i.e. Muslims — from taking advantage of this government program meant only to raise the birth rate of the native population.

Vandendriessche’s interpretation of the commissioner’s remarks was met with scathing criticism from left-wing members of the European Parliament, including Dutch MEP Sophie in ‘t Veld, who accused him of using “Nazi terminology.”

There was not any “Nazi terminology” in what Vandendriessche said. He did not call for hurting, much less killing, anyone. He simply raised an objection to Johansson’s call for at least another one million migrants to be admitted to Europe every year, without her specifying which immigrants, from which places, would be more likely to fit in. After all, it should not be beyond the wit of European countries to put in place programs to attract immigrants who are able to integrate easily into their new homes. The most obvious source of such immigrants is Central and South America. For example, over the last few years millions of Venezuelans have been fleeing the collapsing economy that the Marxists Chavez and his successor Maduro created, turning one of the richest countries in South America into one of the poorest. These Venezuelans, who have been trying to cross into Texas could, all by themselves, provide the “one million migrants” whom Ylva Johansson said were needed in Europe. Another source of immigrants would be the Philippines; Filipinas are now to be found all over Italy, working as “badantes” — that is, caregivers for the elderly. More of them could be similarly employed elsewhere in Europe.

The Flemish politician was subsequently investigated by the parliament for alleged hate speech, an investigation that has now been concluded and resulted in a reprimand by Metsola, the parliament head.

“It is not the first time that your use of this expression has raised a point of order in a plenary session,” the European Parliament president wrote in a letter to Vandendriessche on Feb. 8. “The use of this kind of language, with its connotations of the darkest times in European history, is unacceptable.

“Members of the European Parliament must always take into account the impression their speeches make on citizens and the emotions they can stir. We bear a great responsibility when we take the floor, to preserve the reputation of the European Parliament.

We owe it to our citizens and to this House to behave in a respectful and dignified manner. Therefore, I ask you to refrain from making such statements in the future,” she concluded….

I don’t find Vandendriessche’s remark the least bit redolent of the Nazis. Nor do I find that it violates the need to speak, as Metsola, the head of the European Parliament said, “in a respectful and dignified manner.” There is a “Great Replacement” going on, and it will continue until enough people realize it is not inevitable, and that there are choices that Europeans can make to ensure that non-Muslim migrants are admitted while Muslim would-be migrants are kept out. This policy does not reflect a blind “islamophobia,” but is based on Europe’s unhappy experience with Muslim migrants since the beginning of the century. In another speech, an unchastened Vandendriessche should clear things up, explaining that he is not against all immigrants, that he welcomes those who have a reasonable chance of integrating into Europe, but he does not want Europeans to continue to admit into their midst those who are irredeemably hostile to non-Muslims, when there are many other sources of immigrants who do not bear such animus.

Berkeley’s Hitler Youth Accost Jewish Speaker, Attack Jewish Students, Administration Offers No Apology

Sat, 03/02/2024 - 16:00

University of California, Berkeley, administrators have offered no apology to Israeli lawyer Ran Bar-Yoshafat, whose speech to a campus Jewish group was abruptly canceled by the university after violent protesters choked a female student attendee, spit in another attendee’s face, and broke into the auditorium where Bar-Yoshafat waited onstage….more here.

Stephen Frank writes: 

The Berkeley schools have declared themselves a chapter of Hamas.  Teachers and Administrators openly and quietly are going after Jewish teaches and students.  This is reminiscent of Nazi Germany.

“The Berkeley Unified School District (BUSD) “knowingly allowed its K-12 campuses to become viciously hostile environments for Jewish and Israeli students,” according to a copy of the complaint, filed with the Education Department’s Office of Civil Rights and obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

Parents who have signed onto the complaint say anti-Semitic incidents in the schools have “positively surged” since Hamas conducted its unprecedented Oct. 7 terror attack on Israel.

“At BUSD, a virulent wave of anti-Semitism swept through its schools immediately following the massacre,” the complaint alleges. “Jewish and Israeli students have since been subjected to nonstop anti-Semitic bullying and harassment by their teachers and peers, in hallways, in classrooms, and in school yards.”

Reminder;  Like the Nazi’s, Communists, using Karl Marx principles are also Jew haters—so this should be no surprise that the Communist city of Berkeley promotes Jew hating.

Berkeley Public Schools Hit With Federal Complaint Over ‘Severe and Persistent’ Anti-Semitic Bullying

Complaint alleges hallway chants of ‘kill the Jews’ and anti-Semitic teacher rants in support of Hamas

Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon,  2/28/24  https://freebeacon.com/campus/berkeley-public-schools-hit-with-federal-complaint-over-severe-and-persistent-anti-semitic-bullying/

A public school district in Berkeley, California, was hit with a federal complaint on Wednesday alleging it has failed to stem an escalating series of anti-Semitic incidents that include hallway chants of “kill the Jews” and anti-Semitic teacher rants in support of the Hamas terror group.

The Berkeley Unified School District (BUSD) “knowingly allowed its K-12 campuses to become viciously hostile environments for Jewish and Israeli students,” according to a copy of the complaint, filed with the Education Department’s Office of Civil Rights and obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

Parents who have signed onto the complaint say anti-Semitic incidents in the schools have “positively surged” since Hamas conducted its unprecedented Oct. 7 terror attack on Israel.

“At BUSD, a virulent wave of anti-Semitism swept through its schools immediately following the massacre,” the complaint alleges. “Jewish and Israeli students have since been subjected to nonstop anti-Semitic bullying and harassment by their teachers and peers, in hallways, in classrooms, and in school yards.”

The complaint, filed by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and the Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law, follows a flurry of similar federal filings against many of America’s top universities, including Harvard, MIT, and University of Pennsylvania, among others. Like its college counterparts, the Berkeley school district stands accused of becoming a dangerous place for Jews and Israelis.

“Reported incidents of anti-Semitism include school ‘walkouts’ praising Hamas with students shouting ‘f— the Jews’ and ‘KKK,’” according to the complaint. “Teachers use class time to propagandize that the Hamas massacre was admirable ‘resistance.’ Following their teachers’ lead, students bully their Jewish peers and deride their physical appearance.”

Berkeley Unified did not respond to a request for comment.

Parents have reported this behavior to school administrators, the complaint says, but the district “has done nothing to address, much less curtail, the hostile environment that has plagued BUSD for over four months.”

The ADL and Brandeis Center are asking the federal government to open a formal probe into the school district to determine if the Jewish population’s civil rights are being violated.

Anti-Semitism is allegedly “normalized throughout BUSD. And teachers have responded with threats.”

In one case, a teacher approached a parent who had complained and said, “I know who you are, I know who your f—ing wife is and I know where you live,” according to testimony included in the federal filing.

Perhaps taking a cue from their instructors, students have harassed their Jewish classmates, telling them, “it is excellent what Hamas did to Israel” and “you have a big nose because you are a stupid Jew,” according to incidents relayed in the complaint.

“While Berkeley Unified School District plasters its buildings with ‘United Against Hate’ posters, Jewish hate is ignored,” said Berkeley Unified parent Ilana Pearlman.

In the wake of Hamas’s attack on Israel, Berkeley Unified teachers and administrators have allegedly staged walkouts “denigrating Israelis and calling for the elimination of Jews.”

“Teachers, staff, and administrators,” the complaint states, “have participated in and encouraged students to join walkouts, depriving Jewish and Israeli students of a safe place to learn and all students of instruction.” In some cases, these events have taken place during school hours.

In another case cited in the complaint, an unnamed art teacher “spent significant class time imposing his anti-Semitic views on students by showing them violent pro-Hamas videos, projecting anti-Israel and anti-Semitic images during class.” This includes an image of a fist holding a Palestinian flag punching through a Star of David.

The complaint outlines other similar incidents, including anti-Semitic harassment, that has left Jewish students shaken and scared about going to school each day.

“The Berkeley public school district is just one of many districts in California and other states that are experiencing an extreme wave of anti-Israel and anti-Semitic language and incidents in the classroom and the schoolyard,” said Rachel Lerman, vice chair and general counsel for the Brandeis Center. “Since October 7, there have been continual anti-Israel rallies, taking kids off campus without parent permission, where students are provided with signs and permitted to call for the extermination of Zionists and Jews. Students feel free to engage in anti-Semitic speech and bully their Jewish classmates because a number of their teachers tolerate and even encourage it. Meanwhile the administration does nothing in the face of widespread parent complaints.”

Appeals Court Overturns Jan. 6 Defendant’s Sentence, Impacting Dozens of Cases

Sat, 03/02/2024 - 15:00

Appeals Court Overturns Jan. 6 Defendant’s Sentence, Potentially Impacting Dozens of Cases

Dozens of Jan. 6 cases might be impacted after the court’s ruling on Friday.

By: Jack Phillips, Epoch Times, March 1, 2024;

An appeals court in Washington unanimously ruled that a Jan. 6 defendant’s sentence was improperly enhanced, a move that could impact numerous other Jan. 6 cases.

On Friday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruled that Larry Brock, who was convicted for a range of crimes related to Jan. 6, improperly had additional charges of “interference with the administration of justice.” The judge who wrote the court’s opinion wrote that the charge doesn’t apply to a sentencing enhancement, however, and struck it down.

“Brock challenges both the district court’s interpretation of Section 1512(c)(2)’s elements and the sufficiency of the evidence to support that conviction,” wrote the judge, Patricia Millett.

The judge, who was appointed by President Barack Obama, concluded that any interference with Congress’ certification of the 2020 electoral votes isn’t tantamount to a sentencing enhancement.

“Because Section 2J1.2’s text, commentary, and context establish that the ‘administration of justice’ does not extend to Congress’s counting and certification of electoral college votes, the district court erred in applying Section 2J1.2(b)(2)’s three-level sentencing enhancement to Brock’s Section 1512(c)(2) conviction,” the judge wrote.

The judges, in siding with Mr. Brock, wrote that Congress’ function on Jan. 6 was not judicial but was only a part of the 2020 presidential election process.

“Taken as a whole, the multi-step process of certifying electoral college votes—as important to our democratic system of government as it is—bears little resemblance to the traditional understanding of the administration of justice as the judicial or quasi-judicial investigation or determination of individual rights,” the panel concluded.

Law enforcement officials who were there at the Capitol on that day, they added, were “to protect the lawmakers and their process, not to investigate individuals’ rights or to enforce Congress’s certification decision.”

“After all,” the judges wrote, “law enforcement is present for security purposes for a broad variety of governmental proceedings that do not involve the ‘administration of justice’—presidential inaugurations, for example, and the pardoning of the Thanksgiving Turkey.”

Biden Regime Arrests Investigative Journalist

Biden Regime Ratchets Up Its Authoritarianism With Arrest Of Blaze Investigative Reporter

By: Shawn Fleetwood, The Federalist, March 01, 2024

Democrats’ targeting of political opponents entered its next phase Friday, when the FBI arrested Blaze Media investigative reporter Steve Baker over covering the Jan. 6, 2021, demonstrations at the U.S. Capitol.

“This is the most humiliated I’ve ever been in my life,” Baker told independent reporter Breanna Morello following his release. My arrest “is for things I said. … That’s what they’re after; they’re [trying] to suppress our speech.”

As The Federalist reported, federal authorities informed Baker and his legal team on Tuesday of a signed warrant for his arrest and instructed him to self-surrender for “alleged J6 crimes” in Dallas, Texas, on Friday morning. Baker has been at the forefront of reporting on the more questionable aspects of the Jan. 6 demonstrations.

While told he was being charged with “non-violent misdemeanors,” federal authorities declined to disclose to Baker or his lawyers what specific crimes underlie the arrest. According to Blaze News, the feds refused to reveal the charges ahead of Friday’s arrest because “they believe[d] Baker [would] post them on social media.” The Sixth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees individuals accused of a crime a right to “be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation.”

After being transported to the courthouse on Friday morning in shackles, Baker was charged on four counts related to reporting on the Jan. 6 demonstrations: Knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority; Disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building or grounds; Disorderly conduct in a capitol building; and Parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a capitol building.

While egregious, Baker’s arrest is sadly unsurprising. The Marxists running Biden’s Democrat administration have gone to extreme lengths to weaponize the powers of government to target and prosecute their political opponents.

Former President Donald Trump is facing 91 indictments from Democrat prosecutors across four different venues, two of which involve charges from the Biden DOJ. These efforts coincide with Democrat attempts to kick Trump — Biden’s primary political opponent — off the ballot ahead of the 2024 election.

The Biden regime has also targeted faithful Christians. Not only have federal authorities infiltrated Catholic churches to surveil Christians attending Latin Mass, they’ve also imprisoned pro-life Christians who peacefully protested outside of an abortion clinic.

Don’t forget the federal government’s censorship-industrial complex. This heavily funded system is strategically designed to censor and silence dissenting voices online — even if the information these users share is true.

Yes, Marwan Barghouti Could Serve As ‘Palestinian’ President From Prison

Sat, 03/02/2024 - 12:25

Meet Marwan Barghouti, Serial Killer and Possible Palestinian President

Marwan Barghouti is the most popular potential leader of a future Palestinian state. He is in an Israeli prison, and has been for decades. That makes him a hero in the eyes of most Palestinians. More on this serial killer so beloved of the Palestinians: “The Serial Killer Who Might Be the First President of Palestine,” by Moshe Phillips, JNS.org, February 22, 2024:

The various news columnists and others who have been building up Barghouti in recent weeks say that he is the only figure in the Palestinian Arab world who is popular enough to serve as head of the P.A., and then as the president of “Palestine.”…

Those Western journalists who claim that Marwan Barghouti is the most popular figure among the Palestinians are correct. In a free election, he would almost certainly be chosen by voters to replace Mahmoud Abbas — 80% of Palestinians want Abbas to resign — as president of the Palestinian Authority. After all, Israel’s fierce response to the Hamas atrocities has hardened Palestinian views. Now two-thirds of them are against a two-state solution; they want all of Israel, “from the river to the sea,” to be replaced by the twenty-third Arab state of Palestine, and believe they can achieve it only through “armed struggle” to end what they persist in calling the “occupation.” 72% of Palestinians support Hamas’ atrocities in Israel on October 7, 2023. 99% of Palestinians in Judea and Samaria (a/k/a the West Bank) do not agree that Hamas has been guilty of “war crimes.” 85% of Palestinians in Judea and Samaria “have a favorable view” of Hamas, despite — or rather, because — of the atrocities it inflicted on Israelis on October 7. These are the people who would vote, and vote enthusiastically, for Marwan Barghouti, not despite the fact that he is in an Israeli prison, but because of it.

Barghouti is a member of one of the largest and most powerful clans in the West Bank; there are Barghoutis everywhere. Some insisting that if Barghouti won an election for president of the Palestinian Authority, he could not govern from an Israeli prison. Israel refused to include him among the 1,027 prisoners exchanged for Gilad Shalit. It is highly unlikely that it would agree to free him even if he were elected president, given the many murders for which he has been held responsible. But it’s not necessarily the case that he could not perform the duties of president from prison. Politicians have been known in the past to govern from jail. Americans may remember James Michael Curley, who served as Mayor of Boston for two years from his prison cell. Barghouti could govern by employing his wife, and a group of male Barghoutis, along with Nasser al-Kidwa, as his proxies. They could be sent directives from his prison cell. He could even use the Internet to broadcast his messages to his people. It’s not crazy — Marwan Barghouti would be “working from home.”

Then, should a state of “Palestine” actually come into being, including Gaza and parts of the West Bank, he would be the most likely candidate to become its head. In the Western world, we see Barghouti as a murderer, deservedly serving five consecutive life sentences. Among the Palestinians, he is both a brave hero capable of deeds of derring-do — masterminding the murder of four Israelis (and a Greek priest mistaken for a Jew) — and incorruptible, which is merely a reflection of the fact that it’s hard to be corrupt when you are in an Israeli prison. Just wait till he’s given that chance on the outside, and then we’ll see how incorruptible he remains.

Of course, this building up Barghouti in the Western media shows how biased that media remains. None of those in the media now bruiting about the possibility of a “President Barghouti” has mentioned what Barghouti is in prison for. Perhaps they hope their audiences will assume that he is a political prisoner, in jail for speaking out against Israel’s settlement policy, or for having taken part in the “Great March of Return.” But he’s not. He’s in prison for masterminding five murders. Keep that in mind, the next time you read about what a swell choice — the people’s choice, as the mainstream media keeps insisting — Marwan Barghouti would make as President of Palestine.

Federal Judge Blocks New Texas Law to Arrest Illegal Immigrants

G-d help us.

Federal Judge Blocks New Texas Law to Arrest Illegal Immigrants

Federal Judge Blocks New Texas Law to Arrest Illegal Immigrants

A federal judge on Thursday temporarily blocked a Texas law that grants state police the capacity to arrest people who are suspected of illegally crossing the U.S.–Mexico border.

The measure, called Senate Bill 4 and signed by Gov. Greg Abbott in December, was slated to go into effect on March 5, but U.S. District Judge David Ezra ruled that it violated the U.S. Constitution’s Supremacy clause that grants the federal government sole authority over immigration matters. The judge also rejected Texas’s arguments that it was being invaded under the Constitution’s Article IV.

In his order, Judge Ezra, a Reagan appointee, said the law would run afoul federal immigration laws and claimed Texas would then be able to “permanently supersede federal directives” and would “amount to nullification of federal law and authority.” According to the judge, that’s a “notion that is antithetical to the Constitution and has been unequivocally rejected by federal courts since the Civil War.”

As a result, he argued, the federal government would “suffer grave irreparable harm” because other states would be inspired to pass similar measures. “SB 4 threatens the fundamental notion that the United States must regulate immigration with one voice,” he wrote.

At a Feb. 15 hearing, Judge Ezra expressed skepticism as the state pleaded its case for what is known as Senate Bill 4. He also said he was somewhat sympathetic to the concerns expressed by Mr. Abbott and other state officials about the unprecedented influx of illegal aliens. Judge Ezra then added that he feared the United States could become a confederation of states enforcing their own immigration laws.

“That is the same thing the Civil War said you can’t do,” he told the attorneys.

A lawyer for the state of Texas argued in court that due to the deluge of illegal immigrants, enabled by drug cartels and smugglers, it is tantamount to an invasion and that Texas has the right to defend itself under the Constitution.

But the judge said that while he is “sympathetic” to the state’s concerns, he appeared to be skeptical of the lawyer’s argument. “I haven’t seen, and the state of Texas can’t point me to any type of military invasion in Texas,” Judge Ezra said. “I don’t see evidence that Texas is at war.”
