    Fox News ^ | July 22, 2017
    A Mexican folk religion involving human sacrifice and devoted to "Holy Death" is growing in popularity among drug traffickers and violent criminals, prompting Texas officials and the Catholic Church to warn about honoring the so-called "Saint Death." Authorities are speaking out about the religion devoted to La Santa Muerte, which translates to “Holy Death” and "Saint Death," that has gained popularity steadily since the late 1980s among Mexican-American Catholics. “She’s not a saint. There is nothing good that can come out of praying to her,” Sante Fe Archbiship John Wester said in February. “We have a lot of saints who...

    Host of Fox News' "Specialists" Eric Bolling commented Wednesday during his "Wake Up America" segment that Chicago is a "warzone" because of liberal Democrats - he’s not wrong. [Snip] The facts are: Afghanistan’s population of 32.5 million was hit with 5.9 violent deaths per every 100,000 people. Chicago, with 2.72 million citizens, saw 13.5 violent deaths per every 100,000 people. Bolling poses the question: "What's happening?" Bolling goes on to say: "Liberal Democrats are happening. Mayor Rahm Emanuel is a complete failure, Rahm was in over his head from the get-go ... At the beginning of his term, Emanuel eliminated...
  • Women and Minorities Bear Arms: They are fueling growth in concealed handgun permits

    Wall Street Journal ^ | July 19, 2017 | John R Lott Jr
    Each year brings a new record increase in the number of concealed handgun permits. The rate of growth in permits among women and minorities has far outpaced growth among white men. The data paint a picture of incredibly law-abiding permit holders, the vast majority living outside America’s insular media capitals. A new report from the Crime Prevention Research Center shows that there are now more than 16.3 million concealed handgun permits in the U.S., up 1.83 million since last July. Far more people carry guns today than in 2007, when there were only 4.6 million permits. Thirteen states now no...
  • Creepy New “Smart Toys” Allow Pedophiles to Track & Talk Directly to Kids

    A particularly ominous warning was put out by the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center this week alerting people to the potential dangers internet-connected toys pose to adults and children alike. Not only do these ‘spy toys’ have the potential to record kids’ conversations, track their movements, reveal their location — they even allow perverts to TALK to children directly. The alert, titled: CONSUMER NOTICE: INTERNET-CONNECTED TOYS COULD PRESENT PRIVACY AND CONTACT CONCERNS FOR CHILDREN, warns users of the security risks and vulnerabilities posed by this new line of smart toys that connect via wifi or Bluetooth to your home network....

    It was only two days ago that I told you that “assimilation” is a dirty word in the lexicon of the Open Borders/Refugee industry. I also told you that we have admitted over 40,000 ‘refugees’ from the DR Congo (so far) with a UN agreed upon goal of taking 50,000. (DR Congolese refugees are the largest ethnic group coming in under the Trump Administration. Only 3.8% are Muslim, if you are wondering.) Now both posts serve as background for this stunner from Manchester, NH about a refugee from DR Congo who beat a woman (no mention if it was his...

    A prominent Black Lives Matter activist accused of punching a police horse will remain behind bars for at least two more days after being arrested on her way to court earlier this month. Shere Dore, 41, was a passenger in a car pulled over for an expired inspection sticker in her Fort Bend County neighborhood on July 6, her attorney said Tuesday. That led to her continued confinement without bail in Harris County. "I think they're trying to wear her down," attorney Jolanda Jones said. "I think her First Amendment rights are being criminalized." Dore was arrested July 6 for...

    Cook County judges will soon be explicitly required to set affordable bond amounts for defendants who do not pose a danger to the public. Beginning Sept. 18, judges will be prohibited from setting a higher bond than felony defendants can afford to pay. The same rule will apply to misdemeanor cases starting in January. Advocates of bond reform, including Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx, applauded the decision. "There is often no clear relationship between the posting of a cash bond and securing the safety of the community or the appearance of a defendant," Foxx said in a statement Monday....

    The disintegration of Europe continues… Islamic refugees in Germany flooded a festival and started raping young women and attacking police. This is all thanks to Angela Merkel, who’s opened her country to unvetted migrants, putting her own citizens in grave danger. What is it going to take for Europe to stop allowing this influx of Islamic refugees and start putting their citizens first? The so-called “asylum seekers” invaded the Volksfest in Baden-Wuerttemberg over the weekend, committing three sexual assaults on Friday alone and more throughout the festivities. One of the victims was a 17-year-old girl who was held down by...

    A recent Lincoln Park High School graduate was ordered held on $150,000 bail Saturday in connection to a recent string of strongarm robberies in the Lakeview neighborhood. Bryce K. McGill, 18, faces multiple counts of robbery and one count of aggravated robbery for several street robberies, at least three taking place on July 6 in the Boystown enclave in Lakeview, prosecutors said at the Leighton Criminal Court Building. In all of the attacks, McGill and an unnamed accomplice approached men and women on the street, and McGill would punch the victim in the face, prosecutors said. The pair then grabbed...

    There is a running conspiracy regarding the astonishing number of people who have mysteriously ended up dead — either through odd accidents or “suicide” — after becoming involved with or threatening to expose the alleged misdeeds of former President Bill Clinton and his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Another seemingly suspicious death can now be added to that already extensive list, as a former Haitian government official reportedly killed himself just prior to delivering testimony that was expected to be highly critical of the Clinton Foundation and the disbursement of the funds raised in the aftermath of the...

    A woman shot and killed by Minneapolis police had called 911 to report a possible crime near her home, a source who knew her said. Justine Ruszczyk called 911 on Saturday night because she thought a sexual assault might be taking place in a back alley near her home, the source said. But, after Minneapolis police arrived, an officer shot and killed Ruszczyk. Police still haven’t explained how, or why. “Working to learn more” The shooting happened as two Minneapolis police officers responded to a 911 call reporting a possible assault shortly before 11 p.m., Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges said....

    Two former Capitol Hill staffers were indicted this week in connection with the alleged sharing of "private, nude images and videos" swiped from a congresswoman's cellphone. The congresswoman is Virgin Islands Del. Stacey Plaskett, her office confirmed Thursday evening. The footage depicts Plaskett, identified in court documents as "Delegate S.P.," and her husband. In March 2016, Plaskett entrusted her iPhone and its password to staffer Juan McCullum, who, the indictment alleges, copied the nude images and videos after offering to take the phone to an Apple store for repairs. In July 2016, McCullum, who had left Plaskett's office, allegedly created...

The attorney, Paul Lang, said his DiNardo, 20, confessed to "the four murders" and was prepared to plead guilty to four counts of first-degree murder. Prosecutors agreed to take the death penalty off the table, Lang said.

    Toward the end Dave gets into the warning shot theory of Representative Scalise. Scalise introduced a bill to stop human/child trafficking. Dave believes that the shooting was meant as a warning to other congressmen to keep to themselves. He suspects there will be no more human/child trafficking legislation after the near death of Scalise. I found this interesting. I believe our children are starting to be hunted down by these Godless predators. Please pray for their destruction, and the dismantling of this industry and it's players. ( Please don't listen to this if this is not interesting to you or...

    A 15-year-old girl is accused of stealing a pickup truck on Tuesday and promptly leading Ada County deputies on a chase that exceeded 100 mph. Four other girls, ranging in age from 9 to 15, were also in the pickup at the time of the pursuit, police said. The incident began around 4 a.m. Tuesday when an Ada County sheriff’s deputy saw a Ford F-150 going 65 mph in a 40 mph zone on Overland Road, by the Maple Grove Road intersection. The deputy turned on his emergency lights and attempted to pull the truck over when it took off...

    What has really happened since Donald Trump Jr. released his email chain setting up a meeting last June with a Russian lawyer? Are Democrats and their allies in the media any closer to having their high crime or misdemeanor? Answer: No. As Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz stated yesterday, “it is unlikely that attendance at the meeting violated any criminal statute.” Well said, Mr. Dershowitz. And yet, the media would have you believe that the meeting Trump Jr. described as “literally just a wasted 20 minutes” is a smoking gun that will inevitably take President Trump, his administration and his...

    About 70 percent of the people reported were black. Which, according to the East Bay Express, is proof positive the app was racist, because how could anyone imagine black people break the law more than white people or Asian people? Surely anyone who has seen the movie Fruitvale Station, based on the killing of Oscar Grant at a BART station, knows that white cops are always picking on black people for no reason what so ever; and that is also why so many black people are arrested, convicted, sent to prison, released and from prison, and return to prison in...
