Congress introduces “Unmasking Antifa Act” modeled after 20th-century legislation designed to reveal members of the KKK

July 16, 2018

A Republican lawmaker has introduced legislation aimed at members of the violent domestic terrorist group Antifa that would make it a crime to cover your face while participating in protests and other activities in which American citizens are being threatened and intimidated.

Called “H. R. 6054 – Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018,” the legislation — which was introduced in early June — amends Title 18, United States Code, “to provide penalty enhancements for committing certain offenses while in disguise,” among other things.

The bill was introduced by Rep. Daniel Donovan Jr., R-N.Y., and was referred to the House Judiciary Committee June 8.

According to the text of the bill:

Whoever, whether or not acting under color of law, while in disguise, including while wearing a mask, injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same, shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 15 years, or both.

Antifa members tend to wear black scarves and other head-coverings when they show up at conservative pro-Trump political events to intimidate opponents, attack them, and destroy private property — which began during POTUS Trump’s 2016 campaign and has continued after he was elected.

Interestingly, similar anti-masking legislation swept the nation in the mid-20th century. After World War II, the rise of the KKK triggered state and federal laws that sought to punish Klan members who wore their head coverings in public.

Alabama passed anti-masking legislation aimed squarely at the Klan in 1949, in response largely to an incident in which KKK members raided and terrorized a bi-racial group of counselors at a Girl Scout camp, Camp Fletcher, located in Jefferson County, in June 1948.

Antifa are the real fascists

“The night raid on the camp came about when the Klan got word that two white counselors from Memphis were at Camp Fletcher conducting training for several leaders of the local black Girl Scout chapter,” said one history of the incident. “The local chapter had recently been founded by Mildred Johnson, whose husband, R.C. Johnson, was the longtime principal of Birmingham’s A.H. Parker High School, and whose daughter, Alma, would later become the wife of a young Army officer named Colin Powell” — the former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

What’s also interesting to note is that both pieces of legislation — the mid-20th-century unmasking laws and the current bill introduced by Donovan — mostly pertain supporters of Democratic Party.

Or maybe we shouldn’t be surprised about that, given the hypocrisy of the party then and now. While pretending to stand up for the American flag last century, Democrats flocked to the KKK, an organization that targeted blacks and minorities — something very unAmerican. Today’s Antifa thugs trend towards the Democratic party and use fascist tactics and violence while claiming to be anti-fascists. (Related: ‘Have a fist full of MAGA!’ Pro-Trump Patriot Prayer member COLD COCKS Antifa thug during Battle of Portland.)

Donovan’s bill does not have many co-sponsors — just Reps. Peter King, R-N.Y., Ted Budd, R-N.C., and Paul Gosar, R-Ariz. — but it’s relevance today is just as significant as unmasking KKK legislation was in the 1940s.

Just days ago, the legislation received new attention after independent investigative journalist Mike Cernovich tweeted about it, urging followers and others to contact their lawmaker and push for its passage.

“Let them know what you think about the Unmasking Antifa Act, which would hold far left-wing terrorist groups to the same standards as the KKK and other groups,” he wrote.

Antifa isn’t “anti-fascist,” because Trump supporters aren’t fascists, no matter how often they are called fascists and “Nazis.”

This legislation is needed.

Judge’s Rush Is Endangering 175 Migrant Children, Says Health Agency

July 16, 2018

A California judge is endangering 2,551 migrant children by rushing their reunification with migrants who claim to be their parents, says the Department of Health and Human Services.

The discovery of fraud and deception among the adults who brought the first batch young 103 children shows that the “truncated vetting for [2,551 children aged 5 to 17] would result in HHS placing up to approximately 175 children with adults who are not their parents in the next 13 days,” said a July 13 court statement signed by Chris Meekins, a senior official in the DHHS agency.

The statement flips the claim by progressives that President Donald Trump is endangering children by separating them from their migrant parents. Trump’s deputies are now pointing out that a rush reunification carries risks for the children which progressives are claiming to champion.

Judge Dana Sabraw has set a July 26 deadline for reunifying all of 2,551 children and youths with the migrant adults who brought them into the United States. To ensure the unification, the judge is requiring that the adults be released from detention via the catch-and-release loopholes which President Donald Trump is trying to close, even their claims for asylum have not been decided.

The fast-track reunification “process will likely result in the placing of children with adults who falsely claimed to be their parents or into potentially abusive environments,” Meekins said. ‘My opinion is that the court’s truncating of the vetting process for class membership — including the elimination of the critical requirements for sponsor care plans — materially increases the risk of harm to children.”

Because of the judge’s rush, HHS officials have stopped DNA testing of migrants and children to ensure their claims of parental relationship are correct. DNA testing would take months, said Meekins.

Officials are also unable to gather data about the people whom the children will be living with, likely because many of the households include other illegal immigrants who want to hide their identity from the federal government.

For example, one child from El Salvador was reunited with her mother in Houston without a full background check on the people in her expected household. A June Washington Post report reported that the mother’s mother’s sister had already migrated illegally from El Salvador to Houston.

The agency pushback follows weeks of emotional complaints by progressive activists and media that Trump’s deputies are endangering and harming the children brought into the United States by Central American migrants.

However, the resulting spotlight exposed large-scale fraud among the migrants who are described as victims by progressives.

The White House detailed criminal, identity, and disease problems with 21 of the migrants who brought the 102 under-5 children:

11 of the illegal aliens have criminal records: 

  1. Warrant for murder in Guatemala
  2. Child cruelty and narcotics convictions
  3. Suspected transnational criminal organization involvement and human trafficking
  4. Outstanding criminal warrant in El Salvador
  5. 2 DUI convictions
  6. Significant criminal history including assault conviction
  7. Outstanding warrant in Florida for DUI
  8. DUIs, assault, stolen vehicle
  9. Robbery conviction
  10. Wanted by El Salvador
  11. Criminal charges including assault

7 of the illegal aliens not the parents of the toddler:

  1. Adult said he is uncle, not father
  2. Negative DNA match, adult indicated he is not the child’s father
  3. Adult said she is grandmother, not mother
  4. During DNA testing, adult disclosed she is not the child’s mother
  5. Negative DNA match, still under investigation
  6. Adult disclosed that she is grandmother, not the parent
  7. Adult presented false birth certificate, still under investigation

2 of the illegal aliens present a danger to the toddler:

  1. Before court order, adult was required to submit information and fingerprints of other adults in household where she will live with the child; background check on adult male in household shows an active warrant for aggravated criminal sexual assault of a 10-year-old female.
  2. Child made allegations of abuse against adult

1 of the illegal aliens has a communicable disease:

21. Parent is being treated for communicable disease in ICE custody

Moreover, Meekins reported that eight of the 102 children were reunified with parents even though the parents have not provided the needed details — such as fingerprints –regarding the cohabitants in the houses where the children will be living.

Also, agency officials did not conduct DNA tests on 12 of the 47 adults who have been given custody of the remaining children among the group of 102.

“It is not, nor should it be, our objective to reunify all 2,551 minors with the adult whom they arrived here with, because some of those adults are not their parents or pose a clear danger to the children,” said a July 13 statement from DHHS. It continued:

As we saw with the minors covered by the court case who are under age 5, and as the court has acknowledged, there are many circumstances that preclude a minor from being reunited with a parent, including when a purported parent ends up not being the parent, a parent poses a threat to the child’s well-being, or a parent is in custody elsewhere due to criminal activity.

On July 11, Attorney General Jeff Sessions released new “credible fear” guidelines which could sharply reduce the number of migrants allowed into the United States to plead for asylum. The guidelines may prevent most migrants from using the various catch-and-release rules set by progressive judges, President Barack Obama’s deputies, political activists, and their allies.

 

Nearly 600 Pregnant Illegal Aliens Hoping to Have Anchor Babies in U.S. Detained in Five Months

July 16, 2018

Close to 600 pregnant illegal alien women have been detained by United States Border Patrol and immigration officials in the last five months, newly released numbers reveal.

In a critical Buzzfeed News report of President Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy at the border, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials revealed that between December 2017 and April 2018 there have been about 590 pregnant illegal alien women booked into detainment after crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.

The staggering numbers are buried in a long-form report where pregnant illegal aliens allege abuse at the detention facilities by the Border Patrol and ICE agency.

As Breitbart News has reported, illegal aliens often cross the southern border in hopes of having U.S.-born children to anchor them permanently in the country. In one recent case, a couple with four anchor babies living in Boston, Massachusetts, said they feared being deported.

For this reason, the U.S.-born children of illegal aliens are often referred to as “anchor babies,” as they are able to eventually bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the U.S. through the process known as “chain migration.” Every two new immigrants to the U.S. brings an estimated seven foreign relatives with them.

As Breitbart News reported, the U.S. is nearly alone in granting citizenship to the children of illegal aliens. For example, the U.S. and Canada are the only two developed nations with birthright citizenship.

There are at least 4.5 million anchor babies in the U.S. under the age of 18, Breitbart News noted. This estimate does not include the potential millions of anchor babies who are older than 18-years-old, nor does it include the anchor babies who are living overseas with their deported foreign parents.

The 4.5 million anchor babies estimate exceeds the four million American children born every year. In the next decade, the CBO estimates that there will be at least another 600,000 anchor babies born in the U.S., which would put the anchor baby population on track to exceed annual American births—should the U.S. birth rate not increase—by more than one million anchor babies.

Trump has blasted the country’s anchor baby policy—which rewards the children of illegal aliens with U.S. citizenship so long as they are born within the country’s borders.

“If you have a baby on our land, congratulations. That baby is a United States citizen,” Trump said months ago in an interview. “We’re the only one. Now Mexico has very tough policies. They can do whatever they want, which is the way it should be. You’re violating something very sacred. You’re violating a border.”

The birthright citizenship debate was not always partisan, as it currently is, with establishment Republicans and Democrats supporting anchor babies.

Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) once opposed birthright citizenship, saying in 1993 that “no sane country” would reward illegal aliens with U.S. citizenship for their children.

Proponents of birthright citizenship often claim the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution requires the policy. The Supreme Court, however, has never explicitly ruled that the children of illegal aliens must be granted automatic citizenship and many legal scholars dispute the idea.

Every year, the U.S. admits more than 1.5 foreign nationals, with the vast majority deriving from family-based chain migration. In 2016, the legal and illegal immigrant population reached a record high of 44 million. By 2023, the Center for Immigration Studies estimates that the legal and illegal immigrant population of the U.S. will make up nearly 15 percent of the entire U.S. population.

 

Democrats Don’t Fear Brett Kavanaugh; They Fear the Constitution

July 14, 2018

David Harsanyi

Sure, some of the anger aimed at Donald Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court is partisan bluster meant to placate the activist base. Still, most Democrats were going to get hysterical about any pick, because any conservative pick was going to take the Constitution far too literally for their liking. For those who rely on the administrative state and coercion as a policy tool — forcing people to join political organizations, forcing them to support abortion, forcing them to subsidize socially progressive sacraments, forcing them to create products that undermine their faith, and so on — that’s a big problem.

Some, such as former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, indulged in the histrionic rhetoric we’ve come to expect in the Trump era, claiming that Kavanaugh would “threaten the lives of millions of Americans for decades to come.” But almost none of the objections coming from leading Democrats have been even ostensibly about Kavanaugh’s qualifications as a jurist or, for that matter, his interpretation of the Constitution.

“Specifically,” prospective presidential candidate Kamala Harris argued, “as a replacement for Justice Anthony Kennedy, his nomination presents an existential threat to the health care of hundreds of millions of Americans.” Surely, the former attorney general of California comprehends that “health care” is not a constitutional right but rather a policy concern whose contours are still being debated by lawmakers — and probably will be for decades.

What Harris probably meant is that Kavanaugh is an existential threat to the practice of forcing Americans to buy products in the private marketplace against their will. Kavanaugh, incidentally, upheld Obamacare as an appellate judge for jurisdictional reasons even though it displeased him on policy grounds. (He wrote that the law is without “principled limit.”) He did this because he has far more reverence for the law than Harris does.

Leading presidential contender Bernie Sanders, whose collectivist doctrine clashes directly with the Constitution’s goal of restraining the state and empowering the individual, worries about “workers’ rights, health care, climate change, environmental protection and gun safety.” He should.

Kavanaugh, with Justice Neil Gorsuch, is a critic of Chevron deference, the practice that allows administrative agencies to ignore their legal charge and have free rein to interpret statutory authority in virtually any way they please. Few things undermine the socialist agenda more than limiting our regulatory agencies’ ability to lord over the economic decisions of Americans.

Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, another potential presidential hopeful, said Kavanaugh “can’t be trusted to safeguard rights for women, workers or to end the flow of corporate money to campaigns.” To “safeguard” the rights of women means keeping abortion legal on the federal level, without any genuine restrictions. For Gillibrand and others, invented rights are sacramental, whereas other precedents, such as stopping the “flow of corporate money” — which is to say, the right of free expression codified by the Citizens United decision — should be conveniently discarded. There is absolutely no guiding principle to any of this other than political preference.

It seems to me that with another originalist justice, we inch closer to a time when the majority of the Left will simply dismiss the court as an antiquated impediment to progress. We already see this happening — not only from progressives but from supposed moderates. It’s why flip-flopping partisans such as Ezra Klein are now lamenting the “anti-democratic” position of the court. By “anti-democratic,” he doesn’t mean the court legalized abortion or same-sex marriage without the consent of states; he means it has recently stopped the federal government from compelling individuals to act in ways he and many others approve of.

Normalizing the idea that the Constitution should be subservient to the fleeting will of politics and progressive conceptions of “justice” goes back to Barack Obama, who promised in 2008 to nominate justices sharing “one’s deepest values, one’s core concerns, one’s broader perspectives on how the world works and the depth and breadth of one’s empathy.” The Left hailed this position as proof of a thoughtful and moral temperament, when in reality it’s an ideological position that allows judges to arbitrarily create law and subordinate their constitutional duty to their personal worldview.

Of course, there are a number of legitimate debates about how we should interpret the Constitution. And all justices aren’t political on all issues. Nor are all conservatives pure. But it’s the Left that now embraces relativistic arguments about the intent and purpose of the Constitution.

I wish the Supreme Court were less important. But right now, it’s one of the only institutions preserving constitutional order. And that’s why the Left is about to go nuts again.

 

Feds: 1-in-5 Illegal Aliens Crossing with Toddlers Are Criminals, a Danger

July 14, 2018

7/13/2018

About 1-in-5 illegal alien adults crossing the United States-Mexico border with toddlers under the age of five are either criminals, not the child’s parent, or present some other danger to the child.

A new report released by the White House finds that of the 102 border crossing toddlers who were mandated by the courts to be reunited with the illegal alien adults they arrived with, 21 of the adults were found to be unfit to be reunited with the toddlers they crossed with.

This means that about 1-in-5 illegal alien adults arriving in the U.S. with toddlers are not eligible to have those children placed back in their care and custody after being separated at the border.

The White House outlined the cases of the 21 illegal alien adults who are unfit to be reunited with the toddlers they arrived with. Those cases include:

11 of the illegal aliens have criminal records: 

  1. Warrant for murder in Guatemala
  2. Child cruelty and narcotics convictions
  3. Suspected transnational criminal organization involvement and human trafficking
  4. Outstanding criminal warrant in El Salvador
  5. 2 DUI convictions
  6. Significant criminal history including assault conviction
  7. Outstanding warrant in Florida for DUI
  8. DUIs, assault, stolen vehicle
  9. Robbery conviction
  10. Wanted by El Salvador
  11. Criminal charges including assault

7 of the illegal aliens not the parents of the toddler:

  1. Adult said he is uncle, not father
  2. Negative DNA match, adult indicated he is not the child’s father
  3. Adult said she is grandmother, not mother
  4. During DNA testing, adult disclosed she is not the child’s mother
  5. Negative DNA match, still under investigation
  6. Adult disclosed that she is grandmother, not the parent
  7. Adult presented false birth certificate, still under investigation

2 of the illegal aliens present a danger to the toddler:

  1. Before court order, adult was required to submit information and fingerprints of other adults in household where she will live with the child; background check on adult male in household shows an active warrant for aggravated criminal sexual assault of a 10-year-old female.
  2. Child made allegations of abuse against adult

1 of the illegal aliens has a communicable disease:

21. Parent is being treated for communicable disease in ICE custody

The White House says that if the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) had not properly vetted each of the illegal alien adults that arrived with toddlers at the border, the cases would have resulted in seven of the 102 children being reunited with adults who are not their parents, four of which would not have even been related to the children.

As Breitbart News previously reported, the separation of illegal alien adults from the border crossing children they arrive in the U.S. with has been occurring since before 2001.

For months, the establishment media, Democrats, and the GOP establishment have falsely claimed that President Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy at the border — where all border crossers are criminally prosecuted — has spurred, for the first time ever, a result in which border crossing families are separated.

In 2014, Breitbart Texas broke the story of how child border crossers were being crammed into detention centers and facilities by the Obama administration, revealing a number of exclusive Breitbart News photos that went unmentioned by the establishment media.

Likewise, Breitbart News has exposed how child border crossers were detained without their illegal alien guardians under the Obama administration. The total number of border crossing children who were separated from the adults they arrived with at the border by the Obama administration is unknown, as the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) did not track those records at the time.

 

DAMNING EVIDENCE: Revealed documents prove that Monsanto deliberately sold banned chemicals for years despite knowing their health risks

July 12, 2018

7/12/2018

Monsanto’s atrocious acts were bound to catch up with them some time — and it is beginning to look like that time has finally come. Recently revealed documents prove that Monsanto knowingly sold banned toxic chemicals for years after confirming their catastrophic risks to the environment and human health. Bill Sherman, the assistant attorney general for Washington state, reviewed documents from The Poison Papers, uncovering yet another one of Monsanto’s wicked schemes of mass deception.

PCBs, or polychlorinated biphenyls, are highly toxic compounds known to cause a litany of health problems — and they’re prone to persisting and accumulating in the environment long-term. And even when Monsanto learned of these glaring issues, they continued to produce and sell toxic PCB products. Now Assistant Attorney General Sherman is looking to hold them accountable. Sherman is quoted as saying that the Poison Papers have provided previously unknown “damning evidence” of the company’s wrongdoing. The state of Washington is now suing Monsanto, along with several cities from along the Pacific coast.

The PCB Deception

Monsanto first began mass-producing PCBs in 1935. The chemicals were used for a variety of industrial uses, including as coolants and lubricants for heavy equipment, like transformers. The company reportedly stopped producing PCBs on their own in 1977 — two years ahead of national bans by the U.S. and other countries. In 1979, PCBs were widely banned due to overwhelming evidence of harm to both humans and the environment.

Now, Sherman’s digging has revealed a sordid truth: Monsanto had confirmed the toxic effects of PCBs in 1969. A pollution abatement plan from the company’s archive describes the hazards of PCBs as virtually unquestionable.

The archived document’s section on “damage to the ecological system by contamination from PCBs,” declares:

The evidence proving the persistence of these compounds and their universal presence in the environment is beyond questioning.

“Direct lawsuits are possible” the section explained, because “customers using the products have not been officially notified about known effects nor [do] our labels carry this information.”

Three modes of recourse were described, each with its own “profit and liability” flow chart. The options were:  “Do nothing”, “discontinue manufacture of all PCBs” or “respond responsibly,” which would have meant fessing up to environmental contamination and pursuing corrective action. You can guess which option they chose.

“At the same time that Monsanto was telling the public that that PCBs were safe, they were literally graphing their potential legal liability against the lost profits and public image boost that might accompany being responsible and honest. At the end of the day, Monsanto went for the profits instead of for public health and environmental safety,” Sherman contended.

In September 1969, another memo reveals that Monsanto was responsible for PCBs spilling into the Gulf Coast, Great Lakes and San Francisco Bay areas — and again decided the best course of action was to do nothing and “let govt prove its case on a case by case basis.” Another memo from November 1969 shows that Monsanto scientists had determined PCBs were “highly toxic” to reproductive health in birds.

The evidence of PCBs harm to humans goes back even further. In 1937, autopsies confirmed three Monsanto employees died from severe liver damage after handling PCBs. Later, Monsanto would privately state that PCBs “can have permanent effects on the human body.”

Will Monsanto be held accountable?

In spite of all this, Monsanto continued to publicly deny the toxicity of PCBs for years. But with the evidence in hand, perhaps states and cities will finally be able to hold Monsanto accountable for their unsavory business practices. In addition to the lawsuit from Washington state, the “world’s most evil company” is also being sued by city authorities in Seattle, Spokane, Long Beach, Portland, San Diego, San Jose, Oakland and Berkeley, for PCB contamination.

Now that the company is set to merge, Bayer (another evil company) might be on the hook for their misdeeds, too. Monsanto can try to change their name, but they can’t outrun their past.

Left-Wing Antifa Terrorists ‘Freaking Out’ over Proposed ‘Unmasking’ Law

July 12, 2018

John Nolte

7/11/2018

The left-wing terrorist organization that calls itself Antifa is “freaking out” over a proposed law that would enhance penalties for anyone who “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person” while wearing a disguise or mask.

Throughout our country, and for a number of years now — and primarily because the establishment media fantasizes about,  promotes, enflames and  approves of the violence committed against the right (naturally, HuffPo opposes the unmasking law) — Antifa has been allowed to run rampant, committing countless acts of violence against everyday, peaceful supporters of President Donald Trump.

Antifa has also been responsible for untold amounts of vandalism and property damage, and targets the alt-right.

The  Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018 can mean additional fines and prison terms of up to 15 years. The Hill reports the “bill was introduced by Republican Rep. Dan Donovan (N.Y.) and is co-sponsored by GOP Reps. Pete King (R-NY), Paul Gosar (R-AZ) and Ted Budd (R-NC).”

Ironically, this proposed law is similar to laws passed decades ago in states like Georgia and Alabama to stop another terrorist group formed by far-left Democrats, the Ku Klux Klan. According to the far-left New York Times, Ohio and West Virginia already have similar laws on the books.

Unless it is Halloween, Mardi Gras, or some other kind of celebration, there is no legitimate reason to disguise who you are in public, unless you intend to do something illegal and do not wish to be identified.

And since our establishment media choose to encourage, stoke, dismiss, foment, downplay, and excuse harassment, violence and property damage against Trump supporters; since the media are normalizing and even making heroes of violent, left-wing thugs, it is important that law enforcement have all the tools necessary to stop this epidemic of lawlessness.

Nevertheless, people are still freaking out. Carmichael Monaco, a member of the Metropolitan Anarchist Coordinating Council, a New York City-based activist group, told Vice Tuesday:

[The unmasking law] takes a pro-fascist stance in its very name, and doubtlessly in its enforcement. In the current political climate, antifascists who speak out against fascism, racism, xenophobia, etc. are routinely harassed, threatened, and attacked by the far right, often supported by the police, who are notably exempted here. Families and friends of antifascists also become targets of far right violence. The wearing of a mask is an act of self-defense often necessary to ensure one’s right to free speech.

“It’s a law that threatens to clamp down on direct action politics more broadly. I think it sets a disturbing precedent,” Mark Bray, a professor at Dartmouth who studies human rights and radical politics told Vice.

No examples of Antifa being victims or targets are cited anywhere in the Vice piece. But…

Here are 352 (and counting) verified acts of violence and harassment against Trump supporters, much of it committed by Antifa terrorists wearing masks.

 

24 Alleged MS-13 Members Indicted in Md. – Drugs, Murder, Bodies Dismembered

July 11, 2018

Twenty-four alleged MS-13 members were indicted by a federal grand jury in Baltimore, Md., for allegedly committing five murders, conspiring to murder eight people, engaging in kidnappings, extortion, drug trafficking and money laundering.

In the murders, three bodies were dismembered. Another victim was assaulted with a machete. MS-13, the La Mara Salvatrucha, is an international gang notorious for its brutality and violence. President Donald Trump has described MS-13 gang members as “animals.”

According to a press release from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the June 26 indictment  was unsealed on July 2. The charges in indictment span from 2015 to 2017.

“MS-13 is ravaging communities throughout the United States with brutal violence, recruiting children to their murderous ranks, destroying families, and leaving behind countless victims,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Cronan in the ICE statement.

“This indictment — which charges two dozen alleged MS-13 members with senseless acts of violence — is the latest example of the Department of Justice’s unwavering commitment to combatting violent gangs that prey on communities, whether in Maryland or elsewhere in our country,” said Cronan.

“We will not allow MS-13 and its members or their affiliates to bring their nefarious and deadly activities into our neighborhoods,” said Acting Special Agent in Charge Cardell T. Morant. “I am proud of the dedicated agents who have duly executed their duties in our collective pursuit of law, order and justice.”

According to ICE, 21 of the defendants are charged with “conspiracy to participate in a racketeering enterprise known as the La Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13.” The indictment says the defendants allegedly murdered five people in Frederick, Anne Arundel and Montgomery Counties in Maryland.

“In addition, the defendants allegedly conspired to murder eight individuals, maiming and assaulting one of the individuals with a machete, shooting one individual in the head, and kidnapping and threatening another individual with a firearm to extract payment for extortion,” said ICE.

The grand jury indictment is a charge; it is not a finding of guilt. The defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in court.

The maximum sentence the defendants could face, if found guilty, is 20 years in prison for the racketeering conspiracy or up to life if special circumstances are proven; 10 years in prison for conspiracy to commit murder in aid of racketeering; and 20 years in prison for money laundering conspiracy.

United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Robert K. Hur stated, “MS-13 is one of the most violent and ruthless gangs on the streets today. Working with our state and local partners, and using the tools of our Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces, we are determined to dismantle this organization to make our communities in Maryland safer.”

Some of the defendants who are charged with conspiracy to participate in the racketeering enterprise are,

  • Jorge Raul Guerra Castillo, a/k/a “Pelon,” age 36;
  • Carlos Hernandez Diaz, a/k/a “Positivo,” age 25;
  • Milton Portillo Rodriguez, a/k/a “Little Gangster,” and “Seco,” age 23;
  • Juan Carlos Sandoval Rodriguez, a/k/a “Picaro,” age 19;
  • Francisco Ramirez Pena, a/k/a “Tepo,” and “Advertencia,” age 24;
  • Jose Alberto Sibrian Garcia, a/k/a “Chango,” age 26;
  • Darwin Arias Mejia, a/k/a “City,” and “City Boy,” age 25;
  • Miguel Lopez Abrego, a/k/a “Timido,” age 30;
  • Albaro Rosa Moreno, a/k/a “Slow,” age 23;
  • Ervin Arrue Figureoa, a/k/a “Tricky,” age 19;
  • Ronald Mendez Sosa, age 20;
  • Edwin Ruiz Urrutia, a/k/a “Sylvestre,” age 19;
  • Brenda Argueta Argueta, a/k/a “Prima,” age 19;
  • Carlos Ventura Morales, a/k/a “Pantaya,” age 30; and
  • Danny Hernandez Solorzano, a/k/a “Titre,” age 20.

Asylum-Seeking Central American Discovered to Be MS-13 Gang Member

A migrant from Central America made a “credible fear” claim for asylum after being caught illegally crossing the border from Mexico by Border Patrol agents. During processing, the agents discovered the Honduran national is actually a member of MS-13.

Agents assigned to the Weslaco Station came across an illegal immigrant who crossed the Rio Grande River near Hidalgo, Texas, on July 5. The agents arrested the man who then made a “claim of fear of being deported back to his native country,” Rio Grande Sector Border Patrol officials said in a statement obtained by Breitbart Texas.

The agents transported the man to the Weslaco Station for processing. All illegal immigrants are put through a biometric background check to look for criminal history, gang membership, and previous deportations by immigration officers.

In this case, the agents learned the illegal immigrant from Honduras is actually a member of the violent transnational criminal gang known as MS-13.

While not referencing this case in particular, Border Patrol officials told Breitbart Texas that any immigrant who makes a credible fear claim has to be processed by an asylum officer with U.S. Customs and Immigration Services. The person making the claim is generally turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers for detention while the asylum claim is evaluated.

These claims do not exempt the migrant from prosecution for illegal entry, an official stated.

Officials said the MS-13 gang member arrested on July 5 had no history of prior deportation or crimes in the U.S. The background check only revealed the man’s membership with MS-13.

 

Glenn Greenwald warns: MSNBC a deep state propaganda extension of the corrupt CIA

When people think of fake news, CNN is often the first name that comes to mind. But Glenn Greenwald from The Intercept warns that MSNBC is equally as fake – if not more fake – than CNN, as evidenced by its shameless hiring of “experts” who are merely paid shills for the Democratic Party.

In a recent piece on the subject, Greenwald offers up a history lesson in what MSNBC did to Green Party candidate Jill Stein, who ran third-party against Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.

During a segment on Joy Reid’s show, Malcolm Nance, a former Navy intelligence officer turned MSNBC “intelligence analyst,” made the claim that Stein is on Russia’s payroll, and that she “has a show on Russia Today,” an English-language news outlet that describes itself as bringing “the Russian view on global news.”

Not only has Stein never had a show on Russia Today as Nance claimed, but she also has no known ties to Russia. But neither MSNBC nor Reid has ever corrected the record, despite having been called out in multiple instances for lying to the cable network’s viewers in order to steer more votes toward Clinton.

Nance wasn’t reprimanded or punished, either, and was instead given a promotion that advanced his career within the MSNBC hierarchy. He now continues to spew lies on MSNBC on a regular basis, as viewers are encouraged to believe everything he says because he’s an “expert” – not to mention the many other “experts” that MSNBC has hired over the years with ties to the corrupt CIA.

“On MSNBC, lies are not corrected; they are rewarded, provided the lies are designed to smear the reputations of Democratic Party critics,” Greenwald writes. “Is this not definitive and conclusive proof of that: that this is not a news outlet but a political arm of the Democratic Party? What else could possibly explain, let alone justify, behavior like this? I’m asking that earnestly.”

MSNBC is proud to spread fake news lies

More recently, Nance actually misrepresented Greenwald himself to MSNBC‘s viewership. Following a recent trip to Russia to meet with Edward Snowden, as well as sit in on a panel moderated by Russia Today Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan, Greenwald discovered that Nance had retold the same lie about himself that he did about Jill Stein.

Simply for attending the panel – for which he wasn’t even paid, by the way – Greenwald was accused by Nance of being “an agent of Moscow,” and being ” deep in the Kremlin pocket” – a lie that Nance shamelessly “tweeted” to his roughly 420,000 Twitter followers.

“Obviously, anyone is free to criticize people who decide to visit Russia,” Greenwald writes.

“Anyone is free to denounce those who speak with RT … And, needless to say, anyone is free to attack or dispute any statements or views that I, or anyone else, express as part of such discussions. Nance did none of that.”

In truth, part of the reason why Greenwald was even in Russia in the first place was to combat what he describes as a “toxic, dangerous, and xenophobic perception” that many people on the left have about Russia – which has driven many of them to regard even the mere act of visiting Russia as being somehow treasonous.

And this is exactly what Nance did to Greenwald, right down to his insinuation that Greenwald has “masters” in Russia to whom he has to report.

“None of Nance’s statements here is opinion,” Greenwald emphasizes.

“These claims – especially that I am an ‘agent of Moscow’ and ‘deep in the Kremlin pocket’ – are intended to be factual statements: that I work for, and am paid by, Russia and the Kremlin, and that I aided Snowden in ‘defecting’ to Moscow. They are all outright lies. There is no other way to describe them.”
