U.S. Supreme Court restores normal Alabama election laws ahead of July 14 runoff

The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday evening moved to block an appointee of former President Barack Obama from making last-minute changes to Alabama election laws ahead of the state’s July 14 primary runoff.

As previously reported by Yellowhammer News, United States District Judge for the Northern District of Alabama Abdul K. Kallon issued a memorandum opinion striking down certain absentee balloting requirements for the runoff. Not only did he strike down the requirements only for certain demographics, but that aspect of the order only affects three of Alabama’s 67 counties: Jefferson, Mobile and Lee. The relevant requirements are viewed by many as safeguards against voter fraud.

Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill, as the chief elections official in the state, was named as the lead defendant in the case. He told Yellowhammer News that the Alabama Attorney General’s Office, on behalf of the State and the rest of the defendants in the case, would appeal Kallon’s order to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit.


Man shot dead in Bronx while walking with 6-year-old daughter

Harrowing surveillance footage captured the moment a man was fatally shot while crossing a Bronx street— hand-in-hand with his 4-year-old daughter.

The clip, tweeted by Rodney Harrison, the NYPD’s chief of detectives, opens with Anthony Robinson approaching the intersection of Sheridan Avenue and East 170th Street in Mount Eden around 5:50 p.m. Sunday.

Clasping his young daughter’s left hand in his right, Robinson, 29, stops at a crosswalk to eye a dark sedan slowing next to them, appearing to check whether the driver was turning into their path.

But the driver continues to roll along next to father and daughter as they cross Sheridan Avenue, the video shows.


Ice Cream Shop Announces It Changed Name of Jimmies Years Ago -- Just In Case 'Jimmies' Is Racist

An ice cream establishment in Salem, Massachusetts has announced a race-conscious change to the menu it quietly made a few years ago.

But it’s not clear the original name of the item has a racial connection.

Dairy Witch Ice Cream published a Facebook post on Sunday, July 5 explaining that the establishment no longer uses the term “jimmies” to describe sprinkles — oftentimes used for chocolate sprinkles in particular.

“Hey Dairy Witch Fam! We wanted to have a convo about something important,” the store wrote. “The term ‘jimmies’ has been used in New England for decades, and is believed to have racist roots. We had removed the term from our menu a couple years ago, and wanted to announce it formally. It is such a small change to use ‘sprinkles’ instead, but it’s a positive change, and we know you all will agree!”


Most Rhode Island Calamari Processed In China Then Sent Back Home

There is a thriving calamari industry in Rhode Island, but it could be more local.

Fishermen in the state catch more than 22 million pounds of squid each year, worth around $28 million annually. However, most of it is not eaten fresh. Rather, about 80 percent of the squid is frozen, loaded onto trucks and shipping containers, sent to China, processed when unfrozen, then frozen again and sent back to the Ocean State, as The Westerly Sun reports.

It’s done this way to cut labor costs, but Diane Lync, the chairman of the Rhode Island Food Policy Council, wants that to change. She wants the seafood industry in Rhode Island to be self-sufficient and environmentally sustainable — something she says wasn’t on the minds of most people 25 years ago but is prominent today.


Kamala Harris' Wikipedia Under Scrutiny After Numerous Edits

The Wikipedia entry of Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., a reported front runner as a potential vice presidential pick of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, has seen numerous edits the past two months, most of them by one editor, The Intercept is reporting.

The page has seen more than 500 revisions since May 9, which The Intercept characterized as "scrubbing controversial aspects" that "could prove unflattering to Harris." It also reported the editing has "elicited strong pushback" from the online encyclopedia's cadre of volunteer editors.

All of the activity and commentary has led Wikipedia to place the page under "discretionary sanctions," which include allowing one "revert" in a 24-hour period.

The practice apparently is not unprecedented. Virginia Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine's selection by Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton as her vice presidential choice in 2016 was preceded by a flurry of edits on his Wikipedia page in the weeks prior, more than any other potential candidate, according to The Atlantic.


Foreign Students On Visas Must Leave USA If Schools Go Online-Only: ICE

International students in the US whose colleges switch to online-only classes this fall will have to leave the country or transfer to another school, according to a Monday afternoon order by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Foreign nationals participating in the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) had previously been allowed to take their spring and summer 2020 courses online due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

If affected students don't transfer to in-person programs and remain in the US, they will be subject to "immigration consequences including, but not limited to, the initiation of removal proceedings."

ICE announces that foreign students attending colleges that go online-only either have to transfer to a school offering in-person instruction or leave the country...— Erica L. Green (@EricaLG) July 6, 2020

The move comes as colleges across the country - including Harvard, announce that undergraduate classes for the 2020-21 academic year will be held online.

"Students will learn remotely, whether or not they live on campus," wrote Harvard officials.

Earlier Monday, President Trump tweeted "SCHOOLS MUST OPEN IN THE FALL!!!" in an undoubtedly related statement.


Teachers "Scared" After All Florida Schools Ordered To Reopen In August

In what is sure to be discussed with some "blood on their hands" headline in the next 24 hour news cycle, Fox35 Orlando reports that Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran on Monday ordered public schools to reopen in August and offer “the full panoply of services” to students and families.

The full Emergency Order says that all public schools will be required to reopen in August for at least five days a week and to provide the full array of services required by law, including in-person instruction and services for students with special needs.

“Required services must be provided to students from low-income families, students of migrant workers, students who are homeless, students with disabilities, students in foster care, students who are English-language learners, and other vulnerable populations,” the order says.
Corcoran's order also instructs school districts to follow the advice of state and local health officials as well as executive orders issued by Gov. Ron DeSantis.

Black Man Who Sucker-Punched 12-Year-Old Street Dancer Charged with Two Felonies, But Cops Are Still Searching For Him – Family Not Cooperating

Two boys were street dancing Friday night in Cape Girardeau, MO with their instructor Michael ‘Crank’ Curry.

That’s when a car pulled over, a black man jumped out and he sucker-punched the 12-year-old child.

Then he jumped back in his car and sped off.

Police were able to ID Cedric Charles Moore Jr., the black man who punched the 12-year-old in the unprovoked attack, after viewing the video of the assault taken by Michael ‘Crank’ Curry.


US Senator Chuck Grassley Says Out Loud What We All Are Thinking: “Durham [Should] Be Producing Some Fruit of His Labor”

Americans are getting frustrated. For years the Deep State from the Obama Administration has been getting away with criminal acts while those connected to President Trump are set up, framed, lied to, indicted, harassed and imprisoned. Americans want action NOW.

It’s hard to believe that the Durham investigation could not up till today identify any crimes that the Obama and Mueller gangs committed over the past decade. Actually, it’s not possible.

Americans want action. The crimes of the Obama gang are so egregious and yet their coup attempt of the Trump Administration has gone without any prosecutions to date.

Today Senator Chuck Grassley shared what Americans fear:


Atlanta mayor Keisha Bottoms contracts COVID-19 after bloody weekend

Atlanta mayor and potential Democrat vice-president pick Keisha Lance Bottoms announced Monday that she had tested positive for COVID-19.

Bottoms revealed that she, her husband, and one of her four children have tested positive for the virus, but she hasn't suffered serious symptoms.

She told MSNBC that she decided her family members should get tested again because her husband 'literally has been sleeping since Thursday,' but she noted that his highest fever at this point has been around 99F.


Slavery Rampant In Africa, Middle East; The West Wrongly Accuses Itself

The United States abolished slavery 150 years ago, and has affirmative action for minorities. It is the country that elected a Black president, Barack Obama -- twice! Yet, a new movement is toppling one historic monument after another one, as if the US is still enslaving African-Americans. Activists in Washington DC even targeted an Emancipation Memorial, depicting President Abraham Lincoln, who paid with his life for freeing slaves.

Today slavery still exists in many parts of Africa and Middle East, but the self-flagellating Western public is obsessively focused only on the Western past of African slavery rather than on real, ongoing slavery, which is alive and well -- and ignored. For today's slaves, there are no demonstrations in the streets, no international political pressure, and virtually no articles in the media.

"We must not forget that Arab-Muslims have been champions in this field," Kamel Bencheikh, a Muslim poet, wrote in Le Matin d'Algerie.

"Emirs and sultans bought entire convoys of young black ephebes to make into eunuchs to guard their harems. And this continued with Ottoman emperors.... Even today, Mauritania and Saudi Arabia are still housing their own Ku Klux Klan. Slavery is still the order of the day in Nouakchott [Mauritania]. As for Riad, all you have to do is find out about young Asian girls that the potentates hire as maidservants".

An investigation by BBC Arabic found that domestic workers in Saudi Arabia are even being sold online in a slave market that is booming.


Grassley: ‘The Deep State Is so Deep Its People Get Away with Political Crimes’

In a series of tweets today, Sen.Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) described the depth of the “Deep State” as so great that its members “get away with political crimes.” In one tweet, Grassley referred to recent remarks by Attorney General Bill Barr asserting that President Donald Trump was indeed the target of an “organized effort” to remove him from office.

Grassley fears U.S .Attorney John Durham’s ongoing investigation into the origins of the Russia hoax may avoid making a final determination or bringing prosecutions, so as not to influence the upcoming election.

.@realDonaldTrump #CommonSense Barr recently said “this is the closest we have ever come to an organized effort to push a president out of office “ leads me to think Durham wont report any prosecutions til after election so as not influence vote. SAD SAD

— ChuckGrassley (@ChuckGrassley) July 6, 2020

Grassley was referring to comments Attorney General Bill Barr made in an interview aired yesterday on Fox News Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo:

Maria Bartiromo: A source said to me a couple of years ago, speaking of the Russia collusion story, that this was the closest the United States ever came to a coup to take down a president since the assassination of Lincoln. Is that an appropriate statement?

Barr: In this sense I think it is the closest we have come to an organized effort to push a president out of office, but I’m not reaching a judgment as to what the motivations there were.

Subsequently, Grassley wrote that “the deep state is so deep” that its members get away with political crimes.


Charles Hurt: Trump Should Tweet Less, Make Joe Biden Own ‘Mayhem,’ Rioting,’ ‘Lawlessness’

President Donald Trump’s reelection strategy should bind Joe Biden to recent lawlessness — including riots and the destruction and vandalism of statues and monuments — said Charles Hurt, Washington Times opinion editor, Breitbart News columnist, and author of Still Winning: Why America Went All In on Donald Trump- And Why We Must Do It Again. He offered his remarks on Monday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow.

Marlow asked what message Trump should be emphasizing as 2020’s election nears.

“I’ve never said this before,” replied Hurt. “I’ve never believed that Trump should dial it back or stop tweeting, or anything like that. I think he should blow up the world by — quote-unquote — ‘acting presidential.’ I think now is finally the time with all the mayhem going on — all of the rioting, the tearing down of statues, the lawlessness — all this stuff which is Joe Biden’s America.”

Hurt praised a recent Trump campaign message linking social unrest to Joe Biden:


$1.2 Million Bail For Man Who Struck Protesters Blocking Highway

The man who struck two protesters blocking a highway in Seattle saw his bail set at $1.2 million on Monday.

Dawit Kelete, a black man, was captured on video footage swerving around vehicles that protesters had angled across the highway before hitting two women, one of whom died.

Kelete was being held on suspicion of vehicular assault before the bail was set.

The King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office has yet to file charges against Kelete. It says it’s waiting for additional required information from the Washington State Patrol.

A charging decision is expected by Wednesday afternoon, spokesman Casey McNerthney said.

Kelete’s lawyer, John Henry Browne, said the crash was a “horrible, horrible accident” and was not intentional.


Never Trump Lincoln Project Caught Lying About President’s July 4 Speech

The Never Trump Lincoln Project, led by the likes of George Conway, Steve Schmidt, and Rick Wilson, has been flagged by Twitter for spreading “manipulated media” over its presentation of a portion of President Trump’s Salute to America July 4 speech.

“What’s wrong with the President?” the Lincoln Project tweeted alongside a video that attempted to make it sound as if Trump said operation Desert Storm took place in Vietnam:

What’s wrong with the President?

— The Lincoln Project (@ProjectLincoln) July 5, 2020

This video is grossly misleading.

President Trump did not say Operation Desert Storm is in the jungles of Vietnam.

All this person had to do was back-up the video some 15 seconds.

— Giancarlo Sopo (@GiancarloSopo) July 5, 2020

A look at the full context of the quote shows that Trump made no such claim. Even the left-wing fact-checker Snopes admitted such:

During a portion of his speech in which Trump was lauding the prowess of U.S. military aircraft, he stumbled over the word “sweeping” (either because the teleprompter displayed the wrong word, or he simply misread it), and thus the historical progression he was invoking at the time (from World War II to Korea to Vietnam to Desert Storm) got a bit lost in the shuffle. But a transcript of his words clearly shows his references to Vietnam and Desert Storm were two separate thoughts, not a declaration that the latter took place in the former.

"Swift and swip in" aside, it has been correctly pointed out that the preceding clip gives the misleading impression that Trump linked Desert Storm to Vietnam. He did not, as can be seen in the longer clip below:

— David Emery (@debunker) July 5, 2020

Trump said:

In a few moments, we will bear witness to awesome aircraft representing every major military conflict over the last 75 years. These planes once launched off massive aircraft carriers in the fiercest battles of World War II. They raced through the skies of Korea’s MiG Alley. They carried American warriors into the dense fields and jungles of Vietnam. They delivered a swift and swip- — and you know that sweeping — it was swift and it was sweeping like nobody has ever seen anything happen — a victory in Operation Desert Storm. A lot of you were involved in that. A lot of you were involved. That was a quick one. And they have gone on to dangerous missions around the world to take out enemy terrorists and bring our soldiers home safely.


Fitton: Judicial Watch Sues to Expose Full Truth Behind Obama Unmasking/Spy Abuses

The term “unmasking” refers to the practice of political appointees obtaining the identities of American citizens referenced in intelligence surveillance of foreign nationals.

Unmasking has a legitimate purpose, but in the final months of the Obama administration, his lieutenants were abusing the process as they frantically looked for dirt on the Trump campaign.

Reportedly, one of the worst abusers was Obama’s U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power. In 2017, it was reported that Power unmasked over 260 persons in her last year as Ambassador in an attempt to uncover associates of President Trump. She “was ‘unmasking’ at such a rapid pace in the final months of the Obama administration that she averaged more than one request for every working day in 2016,” even seeking “information in the days leading up to President Trump’s inauguration.”

We have now filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia against the State Department over requests by Power to unmask the identities of U.S. citizens whose names appear in intelligence reports concerning Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:20-cv-01729)).


Black Lives Matter Leader Toronto Believes White People are Subhuman, Calls Them ‘Genetic Defects’ – Begs ‘Allah’ to Help Her ‘Not Kill White Folks’

Old social media posts written by Black Lives Matter co-founder Toronto Yusra Khogali are making the rounds this week.

Yusra Khogali in 2016 wrote “white people are a genetic defect of blackness” in a since-deleted Facebook post.

“Whiteness is not humxness,” Khogali wrote in a Facebook post. “in fact, white skin is sub-humxn.”

“White ppl are recessive genetic defects. this is factual,” she said. “white ppl need white supremacy as a mechanism to protect their survival as a people because all they can do is produce themselves. black ppl simply through their dominant genes can literally wipe out the white race if we had the power to.”

Khogali asserted that white people have a ‘higher concentration of enzyme inhibitors which suppresses melanin production’ adding that ‘melanin is important for a number of things such as strong bones, intelligence, vision and hearing.’

Khogali also claimed, “melanin directly communicates with cosmic energy.”


Rep. Harris Issues Statement on Columbus Statue in Baltimore’s Little Italy

WASHINGTON, DC: Rep. Andy Harris, M.D. (MD-01) issued the following statement after rioters toppled the Christopher Columbus statue in Baltimore’s Little Italy on July 4th:

“The failure of Baltimore’s leadership on Saturday is just another clear example of the breakdown of law and order in our nation in recent weeks. I commend Governor Hogan’s stance on this incident which clearly crossed the line of peaceful protesting. Should Baltimore’s leadership have deemed they want to remove this statue, appropriate steps could be taken. Furthermore, should the leaders in Baltimore continue to stand idly by, I encourage Governor Hogan to quickly intervene and enforce law and order. ”

Judicial Watch Sues DC Government for First Amendment Access to Paint Message on DC Street

Asks NY Mayor to Paint ‘Because No One Is Above the Law’ on Fifth Ave.

(Washington, DC) Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a civil rights lawsuit against DC Mayor Muriel Bowser and other officials for First Amendment violations over their refusal to allow Judicial Watch to paint the message “Because No One Is Above the Law!” on a DC street. (Judicial Watch. v. Muriel Bowser, et al. (No. 1:20-cv-01789)).

On June 5, 2020, after days of protests and riots in Washington, DC, led by the Black Lives Matter organization, Mayor Bowser authorized the painting of “Black Lives Matter” on 16th Street NW, and later authorized or allowed “Defund the Police” to be painted alongside it.

On June 10, 2020, Judicial Watch sent a letter requesting permission to paint “Because No One is Above the Law!” in the identical size and coloring of the “Black Lives Matter” painting on another DC street near its headquarters near Capitol Hill. Judicial Watch offered to pay for the cost of the painting and, citing the timely nature of the issue, asked for a response in three days.


Illegal Immigrant Child Rapist Released from Jail by Maryland Sanctuary County Remains at Large

A Maryland county that offers illegal immigrants sanctuary keeps releasing dangerous criminals from jail to shield them from federal authorities, most recently a man from El Salvador who raped a seven-year-old girl multiple times. Rather than honor a detainer issued by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), officials in Montgomery County freed the child rapist on bond recently and he remains at large. Court documents obtained by a local media outlet say the 56-year-old, Rene Ramos-Hernandez, who reportedly lives illegally in Brentwood “forced unwanted sexual intercourse” with the girl “at least ten times.”

In a statement issued this week, ICE blasts Montgomery County officials for protecting illegal aliens who commit state crimes. “Montgomery County continues the practice of not honoring lawful ICE detainers and release potential public safety threats back into the community,” said acting Baltimore Field Office Director Francisco Madrigal. “When they refuse to give adequate notification of an impending release to allow a safe transfer of custody, it shows their actions are insincere. ICE believes the best way to protect public safety is for law enforcement to work together.” The agency’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) lodged a detainer with the Montgomery County Detention Center on June 19 and authorities blew it off, instead discharging Ramos-Hernandez on June 23. ICE was notified that the illegal immigrant rapist was let go, but officers at the Montgomery County jail refused to hold Ramos-Hernandez until ERO officers arrived at the facility, according to the agency.


Alleged Molotov cocktail tosser blamed attack on black people

Soon after allegedly hurling a flaming Molotov cocktail at an NYPD van full of cops at a George Floyd protest, a white upstate woman claimed a trio of “black” strangers made her do it, according to new court papers.

But the accused cop-hater, Samantha Shader, 27, of the Catskills, actually drove to Brooklyn with her sister in a car loaded with empty glass bottles, including the Bulleit whiskey bottle she is charged with throwing at the van on May 30, the court papers allege.

Caught on tape, Shader admitted to throwing the Molotov cocktail, but claimed “she was approached on the street and given ‘the bottle’ by a black male, who was in a group with one other black male and a black woman,” the papers say.

She even described the trio, saying the man who handed her the bottle was a “thicker guy” with hair in “skinny dreads” of different colors, the papers say.

The other man was smaller and wore a hat, and the woman was thin with “poofy” hair in a ponytail, Shader allegedly claimed.

“Shader stated that the man who handed her the bottle told her that they were going to prove a point, and [Shader] stated she felt important at the time she took the bottle because she was the only white person in the area,” the papers say.


Members of Previous Generations Now Seem Like Giants

We of the 21st century are beginning to look back at our own lost epic times and wonder about these now-nameless giants who left behind monuments that we cannot replicate, but instead merely use or even mock.

Does anyone believe that contemporary Americans could build another transcontinental railroad in six years?

Californians tried to build a high-speed rail line. But after more than a decade of government incompetence, lawsuits, cost overruns and constant bureaucratic squabbling, they have all but given up. The result is a half-built overpass over the skyline of Fresno and not yet a foot of track laid.

Who were those giants of the 1960s responsible for building our interstate highway system?

California's roads now are mostly the same as we inherited them, although the state population has tripled. We have added little to our freeway network, either because we forgot how to build good roads or would prefer to spend the money on redistributive entitlements.

When California had to replace a quarter section of the earthquake-damaged San Francisco Bay Bridge, it turned into a near-disaster, with 11 years of acrimony, fighting, cost overruns and a commentary on our decline into Dark Ages primitivism. Yet 82 years ago, our ancestors built four times the length of our singe replacement span in less than four years It took them just two years to design the entire Bay Bridge and award the contracts.

Our generation required five years just to plan to replace a single section. In inflation-adjusted dollars, we spent six times the money on one quarter of the length of the bridge and required 13 agencies to grant approval. In 1936, just one agency oversaw the entire bridge project.

California has not built a major dam in 40 years. Instead, officials squabble over the water stored and distributed by our ancestors, who designed the California State Water Project and Central Valley Project.

Contemporary Californians would have little food or water without these massive transfers, and yet they often ignore or damn the generation that built the very system that saves us.

America went to the moon in 1969 with supposedly primitive computers and backward engineering. Does anyone believe we could launch a similar moon shot today? No American has set foot on the moon in the last 47 years, and it may not happen in the next 50 years.

Hollywood once gave us blockbuster epics, brilliant Westerns, great film noirs, and classic comedies. Now it endlessly turns out comic-book superhero films or pathetic remakes of prior classics.

Our writers, directors and actors have lost the skills of their ancestors. But they are also cowardly, and in regimented fashion they simply parrot boring race, class and gender bromides that are neither interesting nor funny. Does anyone believe that the Oscar ceremonies are more engaging and dignified than in the past?

We have been fighting in Afghanistan without result for 18 years. Our forefathers helped to win World War II and defeat the Axis Powers in four years.

In terms of learning, does anyone believe that a college graduate in 2020 will know half the information of a 1950 graduate?

In the 1940s, young people read William Faulkner, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Pearl Buck and John Steinbeck. Are our current novelists turning out anything comparable? Could today's high- school graduate even finish "The Good Earth" or "The Grapes of Wrath"?

True, social media is impressive. The internet gives us instant access to global knowledge. We are a more tolerant society, at least in theory. But Facebook is not the Hoover Dam, and Twitter is not the Panama Canal

Our ancestors were builders and pioneers and mostly fearless. We are regulators, auditors, bureaucrats, adjudicators, censors, critics, plaintiffs, defendants, social media junkies and thin-skinned scolds. A distant generation created; we mostly delay, idle and gripe.

As we walk amid the refuse, needles and excrement of the sidewalks of our fetid cities; as we sit motionless on our jammed ancient freeways; and as we shout on Twitter and electronically whine in the porticos of our Ivy League campuses, will we ask: "Who were these people who left these strange monuments that we use but can neither emulate nor understand?"

Assessing the Trump Administration’s Immigration Policies

For centuries, the United States has welcomed millions of people from every corner of the globe to join the great mixing bowl of America. That open, welcoming attitude exists in the Trump Administration, as evidenced by the fact that the United States still lawfully admits over 1 million permanent resident immigrants per year, more than any other country.

Article I, Section 8, Clause 4 of the Constitution of the United States provides that Congress shall have the power to “establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization.” AsThe Heritage Guide to the Constitution explains, few powers are more fundamental to sovereignty than control over immigration and the vesting of citizenship in aliens.1

See David F. Forte and Matthew Spalding, eds., The Heritage Guide to the Constitution (Washington, DC: The Heritage Foundation, 2005), p. 139. Throughout this Special Report, when referring to those people who are here in the country illegally, we use the term that Congress and the U.S. Supreme Court use: illegal alien. See also Hans von Spakovsky, “‘Undocumented Immigrant’ Is a Made-Up Term That Ignores the Law,” The Daily Signal, July 30, 2018, (accessed May 27, 2020).

Over decades, Congress has passed dozens of immigration and immigration-related laws. Each was designed to address a specific set of policy goals and perceived issues. As new issues arise in the public debate about immigration policy, Congress is tempted to take legislative action to address the issue.


Nation’s Values Under Attack—We Must Do This to Stop the Left’s Socialist Agenda

Our country is under attack from radical leftists. Mobs rampage through our streets, monuments are being destroyed, and the very law and order that ensures our communities’ peace and security is being undermined.

In far too many instances, those bent on destruction have hijacked protests, creating violence and division and ultimately attacking the very foundation of our nation. For them, it’s not about resolving race issues; it’s about using racial discontent to forward their anarchist agenda.

One such group is Antifa. While it is widely recognized as a far-left fringe group, another organization—just as radical—has managed to drape itself in more mainstream clothes, gaining significant support with the public, politicians and the business community. While Americans of every color agree with the sentiment that black lives matter, Black Lives Matter (BLM) the organization actuallyadvocates an agenda that is completely out of step with American values.


Watch: Pro-Palestinian BLM Rallies in U.S. Call for ‘Death to Israel, Death to America’

At pro-Palestinian Black Lives Matter rallies in New York and Washington, chants were heard calling for “Death to Israel,” “Death to America” and “From Gaza to Minnesota, globalize the Intifada!”

Several hundred protesters attended the July 1 demonstration in Brooklyn dubbed as a “Day of Rage” event, set to coincide with the earliest date Israel could begin its plans to apply Israeli law over parts of the West Bank and the Jordan Valley.

Speakers issued inflammatory rallying cries that ran the gamut from anti-Semitic and anti-American to just plain absurd. One pro-North Korea activist called for the end of the United States of America and its “puppet governments,” the liberation of “Palestine,” and for Korea to “be one again.”

There were multiple attempts to connect the pro-Palestinian cause with Black Lives Matter.

Dequi Kioni Sadiki, the wife of former Black Panther Sekou Odinga, said: “The European Jews who occupy, slaughter and continue to force millions of Palestinians onto their killing fields called refugee and concentration camps, are the relatives of the Europeans… who kidnapped, slaughtered and forced millions of Africans and indigenous” into slavery.

Calls to “abolish the police” were joined with calls to eliminate “the Zionistic state of Israel.”


8 Fascinating Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Assateague Island In Maryland

In Maryland, when people hear the words Assateague Island, their minds instantly go to a beach filled with wild ponies. While that’s true, there are plenty of other things to do at the park. The history of this place is also quite interesting and just may surprise you. Read on to find out why this Maryland gem is so much more than it seems.
1. The island was originally going to be made into a private resort in the 1960s. However, due to a major nor'easter, development stopped, and was eventually put on a permanent halt.

Increase In Tipping Fees At The Wicomico Landfill

Due to the increasing costs in the Wicomico Landfill operations, the tipping fees for the Newland Park Landfill will increase from $60.00 per ton to $65.00 per ton. The brush fee will increase from $30.00 per ton to $32.50.

This increase will be effective July 1, 2020.

How the Heroes of Black Lives Matter Executed Blacks

“We are thankful that he (Fidel Castro) provided a space where the traditional spiritual work of African people could flourish,” reads the eulogy from the U.S.-based Black Lives Matter for the top jailer and torturer of black political prisoners in the Western Hemisphere whose lifelong obsession was the destruction of the U.S. “As Fidel ascends to the realm of the ancestors, we summon his guidance, strength, and power as we recommit ourselves to the struggle foruniversal freedom. Fidel Vive!”

“You’re from South Carolina, good!” whooped an agent of Castro and Che Guevara’s July 26th Movement who in 1958 was signing up an American volunteer named Neil Macaulay (later a professor Emeritus) for the KGB-mentored terror group. “I really like your treatment of negroes up there in the American south!” gushed Castro and Che’s recruiter. “ Down here in Cuba all negroes areBatistianos (supporters of Fulgencio Batista, the black Cuban leader Castro, and Che overthrew) and marijuaneros,” (marijuana smokers, dope-fiends.)

“The first firing squad victim was a tall handsome mulatto,” a beaming Professor Neil Macaulay later wrote in his memoirs. “He stood blindfolded before the paredon (firing squad wall), his hands bound in front of him. “Muchachos,” he said calmly, “The only crime you are going to commit is to kill me, because I am innocent.”
