  • Actions of the California State Lawmakers are Loud and Clear: They Hate the Police

    09/10/2019 10:47:53 AM PDT · by jazusamo · 25 replies ^ | September 10, 2019 | Sheriff David Clarke, Ret.
    With the recent passage of two anti-cop pieces of legislation, lawmakers in California proved their utter contempt for the men and women who risk their lives to protect and serve in the Golden State. Cop-hating California Governor Gavin Newsom signed into law AB 392, placing even more restrictions on when an officer can use deadly force unless it is “necessary.” It’s as if there are already not enough restrictions codified in law. The standard previously was that of “reasonable” fear of imminent danger to themselves or others, just like currently held in Supreme Court decisions on use of force by...

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Authorities say two men opened fire at a crowded west Philadelphia playground, wounding seven people. Police say several hundred people were at Baker Playground in the city’s Overbrook neighborhood, where a cookout and basketball games were taking place, when the gunfire began just before 9 p.m. Saturday. One person was shot several times, while others were wounded in the arms or legs or had graze wounds to the face or head. All were reported in stable condition. Philadelphia’s police commissioner, Richard Ross, said the 18- to 25-year-old shooters weren’t firing at each other, but into the crowd....

    Today's eerie early morning calm is bound to turn into an all-out melée as immigration activists take to the streets, knowing that any violence that results can always be blamed on the Trump administration ICE deportation raids to arrest as many as 2000 illegal immigrants sheltering in the U.S. are set set to begin today in an environment where some lawmakers are now potential lawbreakers. “A recent report from National Review quoted Nancy Pelosi giving advice to illegal immigrants on how to avoid arrest and deportation.

  • TSA allowing illegal migrants to fly without proper documents

    The federal agency tasked with overseeing security at transportation hubs has been violating its own policy by allowing migrants who have been released from federal custody onto flights despite not having required documents, according to several Department of Homeland Security officials. For the past six months, the Transportation Security Administration has allowed migrants released from the custody of other Homeland Security agencies to board flights to other parts of the country despite the passengers lacking any of the 15 documents it states are the only acceptable forms of identification. Since early December, the agency has avoided temporarily changing federal policy...

    White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Wednesday that House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) is asking Attorney General Bill Barr to "break the law" by asking for documents they have no legal authority to. Sanders said Nadler is acting absurd and should be "embarrassed" for his behavior.

    A Chicago alderman believes “soft on crime” policies by Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx helped embolden hundreds of teens who took part in a massive "wilding" in downtown Chicago Wednesday night. Chicago police say more than 30 teens were arrested, and it has merchants on the Mag Mile jittery. Police estimate about 500 teens, spurred on by social media, flooded into the downtown area, many intending to create havoc. Hundreds of police responded, arresting 31 people on charges ranging from mob action to battery -- most later released to family members. "If there's no consequences to criminal acts you're...

    President Trump’s attorneys and the White House are moving to resist a growing number of congressional requests for information, increasing the likelihood of a protracted legal fight that could test the power of congressional subpoenas. The building battle will shape how much material House Democrats will be able to obtain about Trump’s policies and personal finances through multiple investigations launched by various congressional committees.

    Leftist policies are reaching new levels of insanity in Massachusetts, as Suffolk County DA Rachael Rollins pushes her highly contested “no-prosecute” list into action. The “list” gives a green light to a number of arrest-worthy offenses — including trespassing, shoplifting, disorderly conduct, and “wanton or malicious destruction of property.” In other words, local law enforcement is being directed by the district attorney to stand idly by while miscreants steal and destroy property. The directive from Rollins also orders police to refuse to cooperate with ICE in the arresting of illegal immigrants at the courthouse — no matter the severity of...

    NY Post ^ | 3/31/19
    New York woke Sunday to learn that state lawmakers had agreed to a budget that aims to spend a whopping $175 billion in the next fiscal year, while imposing a boatload of new taxes and fees in the name of funding the MTA. More hits to your pocket, and more spending, are still to come: The budget also sets up “independent” commissions to settle the details of both public funding of state political campaigns and “congestion” tolls in Manhattan. Plus, lawmakers this year may yet legalize online sports betting and the sale of pot, each of which will come with...

    The Democrats, themselves, are domestic enemies that concerned the founders, that they could some day destroy the Republic from within. The 2018 Midterm results have revealed a deeper crisis in America that threatens the fabric of our nation. The integrity of our electoral process is now in question. There are political candidates and leaders from both major political parties who are willing and able to subvert the vote in any number of ways. However, there is a powerful perception that the leaders of the “Democratic” Party are more often guilty than those of the GOP with regard to the mutilation...

    One can sum up today's Democratic party in one word, LAWLESSNESS! Lawlessness is the promotion and application of the rejection of sound moral absolutes; which were instilled into the creation by its ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator (Gen. 1:1-31, Rom. 1:18-32). The Democratic leadership of today has fully embraced lawlessness and the base things of this fallen world (Rom. 1:18-32, 2 Tim. 3:1-7, 2 Thes. 2:10-12, Jude 1:7). These godless reprobates - in their godless rebellion - have sought to rename lawless and evil tendencies with euphemistic feel-good titles, while slandering and branding all those who uphold morality as evil!

    Trailed by protesters shouting “shame” and denouncing “vigilantism,” Long Beach citizen patrols marched before dawn Friday through the Belmont Shore neighborhood, protesting what participants called a “criminal element” in the oceanfront community’s growing homeless encampments. While Long Beach police were supportive, city officials had discouraged the event. “The city has an extensive response to address homelessness,” said Teresa Chandler, Long Beach Community Services Bureau manager. “We don’t recommend [patrols] as the best method of education.” National homeless advocates warned that Long Beach social media posts to “take back the neighborhood” and make “a show of force” could trigger harassment and...

    She was eager to tout a drop in the Cook County Jail population, down from more than 10,000 in 2013 to about 6,000 today. Preckwinkle and Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx have crusaded for reforms that encourage judges to release non-violent suspects on their own recognizance, rather than require them to post cash bonds. That is saving taxpayer dollars and getting people back home to go to work and support their families. But, I noted, “there’s a perception that you and Kim Foxx are too lenient …” “Soft on crime?” she interjected. “It’s the term Republicans use to beat...

    An FBI agent joked about how a witness who lied in the Hillary Clinton email investigation would never be charged, according to a Justice Department inspector general report released Thursday. The witness had obviously lied to the FBI about handling sensitive information, the agent told one of his colleagues, but it didn’t matter, because regardless of what the Clinton associate said, the FBI wasn’t going to do “sh-t” about it. Here’s the exchange: FBI Employee: “boom…how did the [witness] go” Agent 1: “Awesome. Lied his -ss off. Went from never inside the scif [sensitive compartmented information facility] at res, to...

In summary, we are living in "The Age of Insecurity" where many moving parts, which appear to be unrelated, are actually interconnected and working behind the scenes to set the stage for the finale. Yet even during this apparent worldwide peril, God's spirit is moving in amazing ways that John will share at the end of this update. John does not trust the suddenly popular leader...
