If you thought our immigrationist leaders would let a virus impede their demographic-change endeavors, think again. For while the San Francisco Bay area is under a shelter-in-place order, government-mandated curfews and business closings are increasingly common, and civilian life grinds to a halt, refugee resettlement has been continuing (at least as of last week) — this includes resettlement from Wuhan virus-stricken countries.
In Bellingham, Washington, last Saturday, a group of pro-life students were met with multiple incidents of harassment, which included the screaming of obscenities, public masturbation and even a shout out to the devil. What had they done to illicit such contemptible behavior from passers-by? They were praying.
With information supplied by the Centers for Disease Control, the New York Times reported last Saturday that, in the United States, 283 cases of people had tested positive for the coronavirus. As of the same date and the same source, there have been 14 deaths, all but one in the state of Washington.
Yet another effort to transfer power and authority away from the states and give it to the federal government is underway. Recently, Representative Hank Johnson of Georgia’s 4th congressional district introduced the Police Accountability Act to make it a federal crime for a police officer to kill someone. The bill would give the Department of Justice the legal authority to file criminal charges against a police officer should the state fail to file such charges.
Occupational licensure — requiring individuals seeking to engage in a profession to obtain the state’s permission to do so, often at a high cost — does little to enhance consumer safety but much to prevent those at the lowest rung of the economic ladder from improving their lot, according to a recent report from the Archbridge Institute, a Washington, D.C., think tank.
A recent joint report by the Washington Post and ZDF, a German public broadcaster, reveals that for decades leading up to 2018, a Swiss company that made encryption devices and software for more than 100 countries in the world “was secretly owned by the CIA in a highly classified partnership with West German intelligence.” The report also lays bare the well-kept secret that the CIA and West German intelligence “rigged the company’s devices so they could easily break the codes that countries used to send encrypted messages.”
Since President Trump is a builder by trade, it may not be surprising that he has his eye on federal buildings — not buying them, but beautifying them. At issue is an executive order that would “make the classical style — which originated in ancient Greece and Rome — the default design for federal buildings,” the Los Angeles Times reports.
Donald Trump made history January 24 when he attended and addressed the 46th annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., the first president ever to appear at the iconic pro-life gathering, which began in 1974, the year after the U.S. Supreme Court effectively legalized abortion in the United States with its infamous Roe v. Wade decision.
A high-profile anti-gun organization is funded principally by donations over six figures, as revealed in tax reports recently released. The March for Our Lives Action Fund, designated a “social welfare” organization by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), began its lobbying efforts in the days following the shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, in 2018. Documents filed with the IRS, as required of all 501(c)(4) organizations, reveal that the money paying for the group’s many attempts to disarm American civilians comes from donations in excess of $100,000, belying the image of a movement supported by a broad popular base.
