JUSTICE! Trump Administration reopens Emmett Till murder case that helped inspire civil rights movement

EMMETT TILL

The federal government has reopened the murder case of Emmett Till, a black teen whose grisly murder in Mississippi more than 60 years ago after being accused of grabbing a white woman shocked the nation and helped prompt the civil rights movement.

The Justice Department, in a report to Congress in March, said it was reopening the investigation into the 1955 murder due to “new information” it did not detail, the Associated Press reports.

Till was 14 years old when Carolyn Donham, a 21-year-old shopkeeper in the town of Money, said the youth grabbed and whistled at her. Three days later, the battered body of Till, nicknamed “Bobo,” was found in the Tallahatchie River.

Till’s mother, Mamie Till Mobley, requested her son’s casket be left open for the funeral so the public could see how badly he had been beaten. More than 100,000 African-Americans paid their respects.

“In memory of #EmmettTill and thousands of other black men, women & children lynched, we must finally pass anti-lynching law,” the Rev. Jesse Jackson tweeted Thursday.

The Justice Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Donham’s then-husband, Roy Bryant, and his brother J.W. Milam were charged with murder but acquitted a few weeks later. Look magazine later published an account of the killing they said they obtained from Bryant and Milam. In the article, the men admit beating Till and tossing him in the river, weighed down with a 74-pound cotton gin fan.

Bryant died in 1994. The federal government reopened the case in 2004 but closed it in 2007 with no further charges being filed.

But Till’s death made news again last year with publication of “The Blood of Emmett Till.” The book, written by Timothy B. Tyson, quotes Donham admitting in 2008 that she wasn’t telling the truth when she made the claims. Donham, now 84, lives in North Carolina.

Simeon Wright, who said he was an eyewitness to Till’s abduction, died in September. He said he was present when Till wolf-whistled at Bryant’s wife at the store.

Wright, in his book “Simeon’s Story,” says that days later, on Aug. 28, 1955, Wright and Till were sleeping when Milam and Bryant entered with guns. He said his mother begged the men not to take Till, even offering them money.

“They had come for Bobo,” Wright wrote. “No begging, pleading or payment was going to stop them.”

The men took Till away, and Wright never saw him again.

“I must have stayed in the bed for hours, petrified,” Wright wrote.

U.S. Gov Tossing Immigrants From The U.S. Military? Get The Facts

Immigrants and the Military

We also know that just because you sign up to the military doesn’t mean you get in. So what appears to be happening here is that some people who signed up aren’t being taken because the DoD hasn’t finished their background checks or has spotted red flags.

The media have botched a series of important immigration stories. First, it was the separation of children from their parents at the border, a policy that began under the Obama administration and was mandated by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals; now, it’s booting unvetted immigrants from the military.

On Thursday, the Associated Press ran with this stunning headline: “US Army quietly discharging immigrant recruits.” Now, you might think from that headline that the U.S. Army was quietly discharging immigrant recruits . . . for the sin of being immigrants.

But that’s not true. In paragraph 4 of the article, we learn that some of those discharged were told “they’d been labeled as security risks because they have relatives abroad or because the Defense Department had not completed background checks on them.” Both of which seem like pretty good reasons to discharge potential members of the military.

So, is the Trump administration seriously cracking down on good, solid immigrants wanting to join the military? Thus far, no evidence has been presented that suggests the story is true.

PETA Defends Extremist Group’s Illegal Activity

PETA Terrorism

If you thought PETA had moderated itself since PETA provided money to an Animal Liberation Front member who burned down a university lab—think again. PETA seems to be heading into a full-fledged romance with Direct Action Everywhere (DxE), a zealous group of young activists with the urge to yell and scream at people enjoying meat in restaurants.

DxE, with the goal of “total animal liberation,” was founded by Wayne Hsiung, who is now facing felony charges after allegedly trespassing on a farm and stealing a baby goat. PETA President Ingrid Newkirk swiftly jumped to Hsiung’s defense saying he shouldn’t have to go to jail and saying that actions like his are “necessary” for a successful movement.

And that’s not the only time PETA has defended members of DxE. In May, six DxE operatives (including Hsiung) were charged with felonies for burglary and theft after reportedly breaking into a farm in Utah. Following this incident, the official PETA Twitter account posted a message saying the activists “shouldn’t be punished.”

PETA’s connections to DxE don’t end there. Last October, Newkirk spoke at a DxE event where Hsiung also spoke, showing that PETA is willing to share the stage with someone willing to break the law. And in San Francisco, DxE hosted a rally with city supervisor Katy Tang, who later received an award from PETA.

We’ve known that PETA is a radical organization for some time, and its links to DxE only offer additional proof, especially when considering that other animal rights activists have taken steps to distance themselves from DxE.

Consider noted feminist and animal rights advocate Carol J. Adams, who has called DxE a “counterproductive organization” and a “cult.” Adams writes that DxE’s practices have “led to secret keeping, sexual abuse, and enable[d] an undemocratic decision making process.”

Sensible people wouldn’t touch DxE with a ten-foot pole, so why does PETA cozy up to these extremists? It might be because sensible people don’t kidnap and kill pets like PETA does. PETA’s support of and association with DxE shows what PETA really is—a radical organization willing to support criminals and dangerous groups.

Thugs And Oppressors Hiding In The U.S. Why Are They Not Being Arrested?

Criminal In Plain Sight

For years, we have known more than just a few Castro regime State Security thugs have left Cuba and are now living in the U.S. In Cuba, these thugs harassed and violently assaulted dissidents and regular Cubans in the service of the apartheid Castro regime. But upon their arrival here in the U.S., they leave out any mention of their past activities as agents of the regime in their asylum applications and hope no one here recognizes them.

Occasionally, one or two are found out and they scurry into hiding like a cockroaches do when you turn on the lights. However, many of them have been living in the U.S. and even in Miami for years in complete anonymity with no one knowing about their sordid past and crimes against humanity.

Their days of hiding among their victims may be numbered, though. The Foundation for Human Rights in Cuba is working to expose these criminals hiding among us.

Nora Gamez Torres reports in The Miami Herald:

Exile group targets alleged human-rights abusers in Cuba living in South Florida

A Cuban exile group is forwarding complaints to federal authorities about alleged human-rights violators in Cuba who now live in the United States, with the goal of deporting people who participated in acts of violence and harassment on the island.

The idea behind the project is not to launch “a witch hunt” but “to change the focus of the victims” to those who are guilty of repression, and to give a response to those who have said they have seen people in South Florida who harassed or mistreated them in Cuba, Juan Antonio Blanco, director of the Foundation for Human Rights in Cuba, told el Nuevo Herald.

Blanco said he had given information about several cases to an investigations unit in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Since it was created in 2004, ICE has deported more than 590 people who committed human-rights violations in other countries or who are suspected of having done so.

According to Blanco, members of the ICE unit “are willing to expand the range and take a look at these cases. It is not that they are going to investigate crimes committed in other countries, but they can review the immigration files of these people, who would not have been accepted into the country if they had told the truth.”

“People who have lied to the authorities have committed a federal crime,” which could end in jail sentences, fines or deportation, Blanco said.

During a press conference on Thursday, the group released the names of two alleged human-rights violators who now live in Tampa and Gainesville and who were identified by several people in affidavits in Mexico, Chile and the United States.

According to a copy of the affidavits obtained by el Nuevo Herald, one of the accused men was a police officer in Cárdenas, in the province of Matanzas, and allegedly sexually harassed one of the complainants and fabricated charges to imprison her.

Two other people accuse the same man of being “one of the most repressive officers of the mid-80s to the ’90s” and of carrying out “hundreds of arbitrary detentions, [and] beatings.”

America Is In A New Civil War. Are You To Blame?

The 2nd U.S. Civil War

America is in a new Civil War.

Many Americans have become emotional, illogical and violent. Who is to blame?

The nation as I see it is divided into four groups:

  1. The Left – Pseudo and full blown socialist and neo Marxist who despise Western civilization and liberal democracy.
  2. The Right – Hardline to moderates with a distinct hatred for big government and its supporters.
  3. Moderates ‘The Logical’ – This group sees balance between the two extremes but has a its voice drowned out by the NGOs and manufactured media blitz of the others.
  4. The people who don’t care, don’t vote and don’t give a damn about politics until it affects them of their children.

But the Left in my opinion bears most of blame.

  • Through its organized protests which have condoned violence.
  • The cabal of psychology which has promoted ideas contrary to science. What you feel is who you are.
  • The use of NGOs and government insiders to manipulate media and legislators.

All civility has been lost!

A recent piece in the New York Post give the backstory.

Some pundits have been asking if America is on the brink of another civil war, but Glenn Harlan Reynolds at USA Today argues that it “seems to be well under way.”

Hollywood, after all, “has basically turned its products, and its award shows, into showcases for ‘the resistance.’ ” Meanwhile, Americans increasingly are “sorting themselves into communities that are predominantly red or blue.”

Consider last week’s restaurant incidents involving White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen: Such incidents “would have been largely unthinkable a generation ago.”

Says Reynolds: “For many people, politics seems to have become a substitute for religion or fraternal organizations. If you find your identity in your politics, you’re not going to identify with people who don’t share them.”

UNREAL! UK school official who said ISIS does not exist is given anti-terror role

Safia Akhtar Noor
A Labour councillor who was forced to resign as a school governor after claiming that Isis did not exist has been appointed to a council committee dealing with radicalisation.
Safia Akhtar Noor was suspended by Yew Tree Community School in Birmingham after several Facebook posts in which she questioned whether Isis was to blame for terror attacks became public.
Although the school suspended her and she later resigned, she was allowed to stand for Labour in May’s local elections and won a seat in the Small Heath ward with more than 3,000 votes.
She has since been appointed to the children’s social care overview and scrutiny committee, which examines initiatives to prevent radicalisation and has given guidance on the Prevent strategy, intended to halt terrorism.

German Government – BDS Movement is Racist

Jbds-swastikaThe anti-Israel boycott movement is a “new variation of anti-Semitism: anti-Zionist anti-Semitism,” a German intelligence agency concluded.

By: Max Gelber

A German intelligence agency has deemed the anti- Israel BDS movement (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) anti-Semitic, saying it is a “new variation of anti-Semitism: anti-Zionist anti-Semitism.”

The Jerusalem Post reported on Thursday that the state of Baden-Württemberg’s intelligence agency, in its May report, wrote that propaganda by the neo-Nazi party Der Dritte Weg (The Third Way) urging boycotts of Israeli products “roughly recalls similar measures against German Jews by the National Socialists, for example, on April 1 1933” when the Nazis used the slogan “Germans! Defend yourselves! Don’t buy from Jews!”

The neo-Nazi organization called Israel a “terror state” and the “Zionist abscess.” The report showed a graphic used by the Third Way showing a Palestinian flag with the words “Freedom for Palestine” over a person whose mouth is covered with an Israeli flag.

Another graphic read “Boycott products from Israel: 729 = Made in Israel,” which refers to the bar code number “729,” an identifier of Israeli-made goods.

Established in 2013 with the participation of former officials of the far-right National Democratic Party and activists affiliated with the Freies Netz Süd (Free Network South), which was banned in 2014, Der Dritte Weg is comprised of radical ethnic nationalists.

The party describes its members as the “conscious neo-Nazi elite,” with the majority classified as very violent.

Party members traveled to Lebanon in March 2017 and lauded Hezbollah’s 2006 war against Israel.

The Third Way’s web page calls for support of convicted Holocaust-denier Horst Mahler.

Labeling BDS as anti-Semitic could have far-reaching consequences for German politicians and organizations that engage in pro-BDS activity, the Jerusalem Post reported.

This is believed to be the first time that a German domestic intelligence agency has labeled BDS as anti-Semitic and a security threat, while German political bodies and politicians at various levels have already recognized BDS for what it really is.

In August, Frankfurt became the first German city to pass a bill outlawing municipal funding for the BDS movement’s activities.

In May 2017, Germany’s Social Democratic Party (SPD) passed a resolution in support of Israel, condemning BDS as anti-Semitic.

In December 2016, German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservative Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party announced the passing of a resolution declaring BDS anti-Semitic.

The BDS movement promotes financial, academic and cultural boycotts against Israel, ostensibly as a nonviolent struggle against the so-called “Israeli occupation.”

Critics say its activities are a modern form of anti-Semitism and that its true objective is to destroy the State of Israel.

Women’s March Leaders Say Jews Are A ‘Human Rights Crime’

Mallory Sarsour Antisemitism

On Friday, Women’s March leader Tamika Mallory – she of the Louis Farrakhan fandom – explained that she believes Israel ought not exist.

Taly Krupkin@TalyKrupkin

Following her trip to Israel and Palestine, and days before the big Israeli event @CelebrateIsrael , TamikaDMallory answered critics and supporters who asked her if she believes Israel has a right to exist during

She telecommuted in to explain to an event titled “Palestine Is Everywhere” at the Center for Constitutional Rights and Justice Delegation:

My soul would not rest, standing by and doing nothing about it, to know that the US government – my taxpayer’s money, $10 million a day – is going to a government, a military, that takes the lives of people who were there first. There are a lot of people who will say, “Do you believe that Israel has the right to exist?” I believe we all have a right to exist, I want to see all of us live in a free society, where we are all able to raise our families and to be fruitful and have occupations. This is not about stopping one side. This is about ensuring that the native people are able to enjoy their land. They shouldn’t ask anybody for their land! This is their land! When you go to someone’s home and you need a place to stay, you ask “Can I come into your home and can I stay here, and can we peacefully coexist?” You don’t walk into someone else’s home, needing a place. It’s clear you needed a place to go – cool, we got that! I hear that! But you don’t show up to somebody’s home, needing a place to stay, and decide that you’re going to throw them out and hurt the people who are on that land. And to kill, steal, and do whatever it is you’re gonna do to take that land! That to me is unfair. It’s a human rights crime.

Linda Sarsour, another Women’s March leader, then said that Israel was an “apartheid” state and compared Israel to North Korea.

This is historically ignorant stuff. Jewish presence in the land of Israel has been unbroken for thousands of years. The only independent states in the history of the region have all been Jewish. Israel openly invited Arabs living in Israel to stay during the 1947-1948 war for independence, even as Arab regimes informed Arabs living in the area to flee their oncoming armies.

This isn’t shocking stuff coming from Mallory, a devotee of anti-Semite Farrakhan’s. But it’s once again demonstrative of the fact that for intersectional Leftists, Muslim identity outranks Jewish identity – and that anti-Semitism is just fine so long as you hold the correct intersectional credentials.

The Crimes Against Women And Girls The #MeToo Movement Is Ignoring

female genital mutilation

The anti-woman violence feminists are afraid to confront

By Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Virtually every issue has become a partisan football in America’s politicized age of anti-Trump hysteria.

Except one.

The debate that has bucked this trend is the #MeToo campaign, which has successfully cut across party lines, wealth divides, race and religion. This powerful campaign has focused on taking down anyone who has exploited power and fame for sex, not just stereotypical members of the patriarchy in the form of rich, white males.

We’ve seen Bill Cosby, John Conyers, R. Kelly, Tavis Smiley, Tony Mendoza and Tariq Ramadan publicly shamed along with bastions of liberal values like Eric Schneiderman.

The #MeToo campaign has shown that sexual exploitation is not the purview of only some ethnicities or political parties.

Unfortunately, liberal feminists pick and choose which types of violence against women are worthy of this studiously nonpartisan approach. For example, female genital mutilation, forced marriage and honor violence seem not to be considered egregious enough to be taken up by the broader women’s movement. Instead, these barbaric violations of human rights don’t make it onto progressives’ radar. Rather, they’re excused or ignored by feminists because the perpetrators inflicting the violence tend to have brown skin.

If it were a tradition among white men to remove the genitals of girls and sew their vaginas shut, we can assume the women’s movement would suddenly take an interest. FGM is intended to make sex less pleasurable for women and to impose patriarchal norms about purity and virginity on their bodies. If we can call out the patriarchy in the influential, high-paid, glamorous world of media and entertainment, why on earth aren’t we calling it out when it is being violently imposed between the legs of little girls?

The right of women and girls to be free of abuse has been sacrificed at the altar of political correctness.

Analysis done by my organization, the AHA Foundation, shows that legislators in 24 states hesitate to ban FGM despite evidence of girls at risk in their state. Just recently bills to outlaw FGM and child marriage in Massachusetts were thwarted despite support from both parties. Legislators feared appearing anti-immigrant in a policy debate overshadowed by President Trump’s ham-fisted “Muslim ban.” Despite being one of the bluest of blue states, Massachusetts failed to put the rights of women and girls before political sensitivities.

Similarly, partisan politics turned FGM into a political bargaining chip in Maine and the state still has no protections for girls. Whereas Michigan, where legislators were focused on putting women’s rights above political expediency, ushered in comprehensive anti-FGM legislation at lightning speed.

We do a disservice to women by hijacking their voices to score political points. The campaign for women’s rights has morphed into an anti-Trump crusade. This year the Women’s March is focused on enrolling voters in swing states and promoting progressive candidates. The majority of its anointed candidates are in the Democratic Party and a few are independents. The movement doesn’t bother to give a nod to women’s issues requiring bipartisan support or representation.

If it were serious about advancing women’s rights, the Women’s March movement would work to put those who can deliver for women into office, not just those that tick identity-politics boxes. As a woman of color in politics, I was used as an icon for the issues that matched my gender and skin color. The same will happen to the “identity politicians” being pushed into office today.

Ironically, the women’s movement’s preoccupation with intersectionality will see core women’s issues pushed further down the list of priorities. This cruel ideology asks women of color to remain subjected and abused until we achieve some mythical moment of equality on every score.

Intersectionality entrenches victimhood and prevents men of color from being held accountable for patriarchal attitudes and behaviors, laying the blame entirely on white men.

We must depoliticize women’s rights. We don’t have to agree with each other’s political views but protecting individual human rights must be a given. In a world where half of American women are marginalized, we all lose.

FBI Releases 2nd Amendment Statement, States the Importance of Armed Citizens in America

2nd Amendment FBI

Active shooter incidents are defined as any incident involving one or more individuals who are actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill those within a populated area — gang or drug-related shootings notwithstanding.

There were 50 active shooter incidents in 2016 and 2017 combined, leaving many to question if America is, in fact, safer when armed.

However, a recent investigation by the FBI in April showed that, in numerous incidents involving active shooters, there were people who stopped them by use of a weapon.

“Armed and unarmed citizens engaged the shooter in 10 incidents. They safely and successfully ended the shootings in eight of those incidents,” read the report. “Their selfless actions likely saved many lives.

“The enhanced threat posed by active shooters and the swiftness with which active shooter incidents unfold support the importance of preparation by law enforcement officers and citizens alike.”

Ten active shooters had been confronted by citizens, and eight of them ended successfully, according to The Daily Caller. Four of those eight shooters were stopped by a lawfully armed citizen.

“In one incident, a citizen possessing a valid firearms permit exchanged gunfire with the shooter, causing the shooter to flee to another scene and continue shooting,” the report read.

Yet, in the wake of so many gun shootings and violence, the call for disarming American citizens remains.

According to Timothy Hsiao for The Federalist, it is not a matter of if guns increase violence, but if they are a good means of self-defense.

“What matters is not the risk (or lack thereof) that guns pose to society, but simply whether guns are a reasonable means of self-defense,” wrote Hsiao, adding that to defend one’s life is a basic dignity that cannot be taken away in the name of “social utility.”

“Rights function as moral ‘trump cards’ that override appeals to utility,” he said. “Like our right to life, our right to defend ourselves is a basic dignity that can’t be defeated just because it might produce a net benefit.”

In nearly all national survey estimates, the result saw that defensive gun uses by victims were nearly as common as offensive uses by criminals.

Though millions of Americans are legally permitted to carry firearms every day, most of them cite self-defense as the first and foremost reason to do so.

“The overwhelming majority of the time, those guns are never drawn in anger,” wrote Paul Hsieh for Forbes. “But innocent civilians can and do sometimes use their guns in self-defense.”

Any conversation, Hsieh added, that centers around firearm policy needs to acknowledge those that are saved by the legal use of guns and self-defense, such as those in the active shooter incidents.

“The value of firearms in the hands of law-abiding citizens should be measured in terms of lives saved or crimes prevented,” he said, “Not criminals killed.”
