    A court recently upheld New Jersey’s ban on firearm magazines that hold more than ten rounds, but state officials have steadfastly refused to inform the citizens just how they intend to enforce that law. But the fact that it was upheld and coupled with news in a growing list of other states — not to mention the noise from Washington DC proves that the Democrats intend to make 2019 the year of gun confiscation and ending the Second Amendment in every way without saying it openly. As to New Jersey, Governor Phil Murphy signed the ban on extended magazines in...

    Nineteen-year-old Maryury Elizabeth Serrano-Hernandez, a Hondruan woman who made the grueling 2,000-mile trek to the U.S. border with her husband and three-year-old in tow, wasn’t about to miss out on what she called the “big reward”: having a baby on American soil. But when the family reached Tijuana a month after they set out on their journey, they found that thousands of Central Americans had had the same idea before them. With U.S. inspectors processing only about 100 asylum claims daily, Serrano-Hernandez — who was eight months pregnant — wasn’t about to wait her turn. Somehow she managed to scale...

    The number of arrests yesterday in France was raised even higher today to nearly 2,000. 1,939 is the latest number from the government, which also says that 136,000 people participated in the protests yesterday. Lawyers groups denounced the arbitrary nature of arrests, many of which were described as preventive by the authorities. People were arrested because they looked dangerous or were carrying items considered dangerous. 500 people were reported to still be in custody as of Sunday evening.....

    As Paris exploded with further protests and riots this weekend over French President Emmanuel Macron's liberal policies, France's so-called leader was hiding behind the majestic walls of his presidential palace as the streets of the capital erupted in fury. As angry citizens battled with authorities over policies pushed by the Macron Administration, the president skulked inside the Elysee Palace, guarded by hundreds of riot police and surrounded by armored cars bearing machine guns and grenade launchers.

    The question above is often asked rhetorically in response to Twitter posts by the embattled freshman congressman, who has become something of an ideological lightning rod since her emergence on the political scene. ... So how did this utterly unspectacular creature, who previously worked as a bartender and a waitress in a taqueria, win a seat in Congress at the tender age of 28? A lot can be construed from census data on New York’s 14th congressional district, which she clutched away from a veteran Democratic congressman.

    The tactics resemble those used in 2016 in Oregon during the Oregon Standoff protest led by Ammon Bundy. Spread fear of "extremism" and "violence", target people for harassment or arrest and put people into the protest who claim to support it but who are there to disrupt it. An of course, militarize the police and create a "Red Dawn" occupation atmosphere. To underscore that armored vehicles are on the streets of Paris on Saturday. While the culture of protest is different in France, the tactics of the government are the same. On French television Friday night, the Prefect of Police...

    The French police forces including the special CRS riot police will be as fully mobilized as possible in Paris and other locations tomorrow as the "yellow vests" protests move into their next phase of mobilization swelled by new supporters. 125-thousand plus were estimated to have protested last Saturday and its quite possible that the protests may be even larger tomorrow. The Prime Minister of France's increasingly unpopular President Emmanuel Macron, Edouard Philippe, appeared on the evening television news Thursday to say 89-thousand police are mobilized for tomorrow's protests....

    Fearful rhetoric is coming from the highest levels of France's government as a source at the Presidential Elysee Palace told the "Le Figaro" newspaper that the 'yellow vests' are attempting a coup. That source was quoted by "Le Figaro": "They are putschists. We are in a putschist attempt." A "yellow vests" protester told a television program on BFM-TV Wednesday night that hoped to be in the Elysee Palace on Saturday. But that protester, Eric Drouet, set the record straight from his perspective in a "Facebook" video today (Thursday). Drouet said in part: "I do not call for hatred. I say...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden gave the strongest signal yet that he is considering a presidential campaign in 2020, describing himself as the “most qualified” person to fill the role. “I’ll be as straight with you as I can,” Biden told a Montana crowd as he promoted his memoir, Promise Me, Dad. “I think I’m the most qualified person in the country to be president.” It is an unmistakable shot across the bow, staking his claim to the Democrat party’s nomination.

    This is what our schools are teaching your children, folks: A new survey shows that 1 in 5 Millennials say the American flag is a “sign of intolerance and hatred.” Not only do many kids feel that Old Glory is evil, but two in five also say it is OK to burn the flag. ... This is disgusting, but it is a perfect example of the self-loathing that the Democrats and the liberals who are destroying our schools are teaching to our young people. The left is cultivating a society of Americans who hate this country. These liberals want a...

    In an unguarded moment during a promotional tour for her memoir, Becoming, Michelle Obama chastized a feminist technique to balance work and family life by saying “that s*** doesn’t work all the time.” Obama had been referencing a self-help technique for women to climb the corporate ladder while simultaneously balancing their marriage and raising children, known as ‘leaning in.’ The concept was popularized by Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg who authored a book titled, Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead. “That whole ‘so you can have it all,'” concept, Obama lamented. “Nope, not at the same...

    The sudden Monday meeting in Brussels between Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was widely interpreted as a signal for Israeli military action in Lebanon. Within hours Israeli media are reporting that "Operation Northern Shield" has been launched to destroy cross-border tunnels operated by the Iranian backed Hezbollah movement. Not a lot of information is being publicly released but it appears that the Israeli forces are operating on their side of the border to destroy parts of tunnels that are inside Israel's borders. Israeli farmers are being warned not to approach the border area....
  • SCOTUS Declines to Hear Environmental Challenge Blocking Construction of Border Wall

    Monday, the Supreme Court said it would not hear a challenge brought by environmental groups against the Trump administration concerning the construction of the border wall. The complaint alleged construction of the border wall would violate environmental laws and threaten endangered species. In 1996, President Clinton signed a law allowing the “the executive branch with authority to waive environmental laws if those laws impede construction of barriers and roads near the border,” according to CNBC.

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau refused to hold up a copy of the trade pact signed by him, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, and President Trump, at Friday’s ceremony, despite the latter urging him to do so. Trudeau appeared to be in a bit of a feisty mood despite the historic nature of the agreement, along with Trump’s insistence that the two have become ‘great friends.’ Aside from being the only one of the three North American leaders to not hold the document up for a photo op, Trudeau referred to the President as simply “Donald” during the meeting, and...

    Macron held a news conference in Buenos Aires where he said that there was no cause justified the looting of stores, attacking the security forces, or torching of property. Macron totally fails to comprehend that the violence is building frustration that historically is necessary to mature into a revolution. This is not a political movement. This is economically driven. The police said that violent far-right and far-left groups had infiltrated the yellow vests movement in a desperate effort to call them extremists. These protests began as a backlash against Macron’s fuel tax hikes, but have tapped into a growing resentment...

BAMN members have taken to social media to encourage other protesters and members of the migrant caravan along with posting the information on their website.
