What in the world is going on with the Broward County Sheriff’s Department?


While the Leftist are exploiting the Parkland Massacre in a Broward County Florida high school for gun control, more and more indications the Broward County Sheriff Department (BCSD) was so derelict in procedural management that this police department is quite probably responsible for 17 murdered individuals and some wounded.




Legal Insurrection shares what it knows to date. I am guessing more details are forthcoming.

What in the world is going on with the Broward County Sheriff’s Department?

February 27, 2018 9:14pm

The more we find out, the worse this gets


The latest Florida school shooting is not just tragic, but as one reader pointed out, atrocious. Atrocious because every law enforcement agency involved ignored eleventy billion (approximately) red flags.

As more information becomes available, it’s looking more and more like there are some serious problems within the Broward County Sherrif’s [sic] department. We’ve chronicled several of those herehere, and here.

The failure of the designated school officer to engage the shooter (he’s now defending himself, saying he believed the shooting was happening outside of the school), then the revelation that four officers sat outside during the bloodbath, EMT’s who weren’t allowed to enter the school and begin working to save the wounded, and that’s just the beginning of what’s turning into an all-out scandal.

Most recently, Buzzfeed reported, based on dispatch records they obtained, that the number of calls to the Cruz home was double that disclosed by the BCSD. Most of the calls not mentioned by the BCSD were for domestic disturbance issues, fights between Cruz and his brother, or the like. Nonetheless, they were not included in reports and records released by Broward County.

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel refuses to resign and blames the officer on duty for his failure to engage the shooter:

  
As heat on the department has intensified, the Broward County Sheriff’s office strongly encouraged all employees to “stand as one” against a “flurry of media allegations.”


For several days, a story suggesting Broward County softened policies against juveniles has made its way around the internet. This story alleges the Broward County Sheriff’s Department was in cahoots with the Broward County School District. An arrangement of some kind was made wherein BCSD would go easy on minors in order to artificially inflate crime statistics, helping both the department and the school district to obtain grant money.

The nagging question here: why didn’t Broward County officials take repeated warnings about Cruz seriously? This theory may provide some context.

Whether or not this theory is true, we don’t know. What we do know is that according to a handful of experts, Cruz could have faced charges well before he went on a murder rampage had Broward County handled his case differently or even handled his case like other departments in the area.

From the Miami Herald:

His troubling behavior gave law enforcement plenty of opportunities to investigate and arrest him — and even take away his guns — long before he shot up Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland last week, according to interviews with former South Florida prosecutors and legal experts.

In recent years, South Florida police detectives have arrested a slew of young men in unrelated cases who exhibited similar, troubling behavior on a variety of charges. Cops took them seriously.

It never happened with Cruz.

“There’s no doubt there was a failure,” former Miami-Dade prosecutor Marshall Dore Louis said of how law enforcement handled tips about Cruz. “The idea that they were aware of it and could do nothing is absurd. … We can’t let this happen again.”

…“The standard isn’t whether that information itself was ‘arrestable’ but whether law enforcement had an obligation to investigate a violation of the law,” said John Priovolos, a former Miami prosecutor. “A detective should have been assigned. Subpoenas should have been sent to Instagram to locate the IP address and verify it was Cruz.

“Cruz could have been arrested — maybe he would have been diverted to a mental-health court, but he would have been under some sort of supervision.”

Even if a case couldn’t have been made, the teen might have been placed squarely on the radar of police analysts who monitor potentially dangerous people who post online, Priovolos said.

“At the very least, the most capable intelligence detectives should have been monitoring him,” Priovolos said.

But none of that happened. And now 17 people are dead.

Obama’s Genie


Joan Swirsky writing for the Canada Free Press takes a historical rundown of Barack Hussein Obama’s quest for power. She begins with his childhood by exposing all the lack of documentation that should be available for the public to view -- but are not.

Swirsky runs through the political dirty tricks running unopposed from the State level including U.S. Senator. She homes in the lies and his eventual Deep State connections attempting to get Crooked Hillary elected. After the election failure, old Barry collJoan Swudes with his Deep State comrades (including the Leftist MSM) to make up lying-dirt for the impeachment of President Donald J. Trump.

Despite all the lies against a sitting President, it is all beginning to unravel. I am with Swirsky wondering if justice will catch up to the kingpin of the Deep State – Barack Hussein Obama (aka Barry Soetoro).

Told as through the eyes of unwitting genie in the lamp.

President Trump not only wiped out any shred of Mr. Obama's so-called legacy, he effectively destroyed the fantasy of a magical genie that has guided the former community organizer's lifelong obsessive mission to destroy America

Obama’s Genie

February 27, 2018


Imagine a guy in his mid-thirties walking on a beach in Hawaii and seeing an object that actually looked like the genie lamp he read about in his childhood—the kind of lamp he could rub until a genie popped out and granted his most fervent wish.

Being a pretty ordinary guy—you know, the kind who hung out smoking pot, who slacked off in school, who didn’t get the girl and actually hated and was jealous of the guys who did—he asked for power.

Poof—the Genie granted him his wish, power beyond his wildest dreams.

To be sure, the Genie certainly didn’t know that this ordinary guy didn’t want merely to embarrass the guys he was jealous of, he wanted to destroy them. And not through the ordinary methods—knives, guns, poison, et al, although all of them might play a part one day—but through politics!

The most important thing the Genie didn’t know was that all those cool, get-the-girl guys were only symbols for the thing Mr. Ordinary hated most—America!

But too late—the Genie had given him the power to mobilize the entire world against the country he claimed was the place of his birth.

ONE LUCKY GUY

Who was this ordinary guy?

He said his name was Barack Obama and that he was born in 1961 to a white mother and black father from Kenya, Africa, who met at the University of Hawaii. Reporters had no interest in finding a marriage certificate, but—as leftists are so fond of saying—it’s only a piece of paper!

Two years later, the boy’s parents divorced and young Obama’s mother met and married another U. of Hawaii student, Lolo Soetoro, a native of Indonesia. In 1966, the couple moved to Jakarta, Indonesia, with five-year-old Barack, who was adopted by his new father, which according to Indonesian law would automatically make him an Indonesian citizen. His student ID card carried the name of Barry Soetoro. Four years later, Mrs. Soetoro gave birth to a daughter named Maya and sent 10-year-old Barack back to Hawaii to be raised by her parents.

In Indonesia, the reporting grows fuzzy, some saying that Barack attended a Christian school, others saying a Madrassa where he studied the Koran. The latter seems more probable as Mr. Obama himself described the Muslim call to prayer as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.‚”

After high school, Mr. Obama studied at Occidental College in Los Angeles. But again, the media weren’t curious enough to ask for the transcripts and so none were ever produced. Was this to conceal Mr. Obama’s status as a foreign student? Mmmmm.

Then, he transferred to Columbia University in NY City. But strangely, no first-person reports ever emerged of any associations, sightings, relationships or dating of the Ivy League student—and, again, no transcripts.

Mr. Obama moved to Chicago in 1985 and became a community organizer—entering the profession of his own and Hillary Clinton’s idol, Saul Alinsky, the America-loathing Marxist whose book, “Rules for Radicals,‚” provided a blueprint for “fundamentally changing‚” the United States of America from a capitalist, free-market, U.S. Constitution-respecting, freedom-loving country into either a Communist paradise or an Islamic caliphate.

In 1988, our One Lucky Guy entered Harvard Law School where he became the first African-American editor of the Harvard Law Review....quite amazingly, seeing that he wrote not one article to earn this honor and that—ta da—no transcripts of his years in the law school ever materialized! The media once again demonstrated a remarkable lack of curiosity about who paid Mr. Obama’s immensely expensive tuition.

They also had no interest in asking Mr. Obama why Simon & Schuster cancelled the contract on the book they gave him a pricey advance for—Dreams from My Father—which was finally published in 1995 by Times Books (a division of Random House). Or how on earth his publisher, editor, and the professionals employed by the literary agency, Acton & Dystel, could all have gotten it wrong when they distributed a publicity brochure for the book that featured the author’s picture and a blurb that read: “Barack Obama, the first African American president of the Harvard Law Review, was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii”—a description future candidate and then Oval Office occupant Barack Obama would spend approximately two-million dollars on denying!

After Harvard, the new graduate joined a Chicago law firm where his supervisor was another Harvard Law School graduate, Michelle Robinson. They dated, then married. But surprise, surprise, there is no record of their marriage certificate, just as no photos of Michelle being pregnant with their two daughters and no birth certificates of their daughters exist in the public domain.

AFFIRMATIVE ACTION

No, not the policy of favoring members of a minority group in job hiring, college admissions, etc., but rather the concrete steps a number of shakers and movers took when they began to think that Mr. Obama would be the perfect fit for Chicago “machine‚” politics.

In 1995, Mr. Obama’s mentor, the Communist Alice Palmer, announced that she was giving up her seat in the state senate to run for the U.S. Congress and anointed Mr. Obama her successor. She had personally introduced Mr. Obama to Bill Ayersthe anti-war founder of the terrorist group the Weather Underground Organization (WUO) who advocated killing 25-million Americans to actualize his goal of overthrowing America—and to Ayers’ partner in crime, his wife Bernardine Dohrn. According to writer Aaron Klein, a 1995 meeting in the Ayers’ living room “was said to have launched Obama’s political career.‚”

Mr. Obama’s political career was launched in the Ayers’ living room.

But after Mrs. Palmer suffered an unexpected defeat in the special congressional election, she decided she wanted her state senate seat back and asked Mr. Obama not to run. He not only refused to step aside but said he was going to pose a legal challenge to the legitimacy of the signatures she had amassed to qualify for the ballot. Using the same tactic, he got all four challengers—including Mrs. Palmer—knocked off the ballot so he could run unchallenged.

Mr. Obama spent three terms in the Illinois state senate—from 1997 to 2004—when he decided to run for the U.S. Senate. And whaddaya know! Trailing in third place, Mr. Obama magically—or you can blame it on the Genie—got some hack from The Chicago Tribune to publish salacious dirt on both rivals, which destroyed their candidacies and gave the nomination to, again, the unchallenged state senator.

That was in March. The following July, Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) pushed for Senate-nominee Obama to give the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention. It was a masterful presentation in which the extreme leftwing radicalism—which defined his years in community organizing and in state office and would go on to define his eight years in the Oval Office—was camouflaged to perfection.

“There’s not a liberal America and a conservative America,‚” he intoned to the audience, “there’s the United States of America. There’s not a black America and white America and Latino America and Asian America; there’s the United States of America. The pundits like to slice-and-dice our country into Red States and Blue States…we are one people, all of us pledging allegiance to the stars and stripes, all of us defending the United States of America.‚”

Yeah, right.

DEFINITION OF CHUTZPAH

On February 10, 2007, only three years into his first term, Senator Obama announced his intention to seek the presidency of the United States of America. Just as his three terms in the Illinois state senate had yielded a remarkably unremarkable record of boilerplate liberal “accomplishments‚”—with abortion, especially late-term abortion, and also killing legislation to protect born-alive survivors of abortions at the top of his list—so had his first three years in Washington, D.C.

But on August 28, 2008, the fledgling senator was nominated for president, defeating the perennial glass-ceiling candidate, Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY), and going on to defeat the Republican-in-Name-Only (RINO), Arizona Sen. John McCain.

Who, indeed, could manage to mobilize leftwing politics worldwide? Which included:

§  The entire spectrum of the American Democrat Party,

§  The worldwide America-loathing Muslim Brotherhood,

§  The bought-and-paid-for American media whores,

§  The impotent socialists of the European Union,

§  The impotent socialists and Communists of Venezuela, Cuba, and other utterly failed regimes,

§  The Muslim terrorist regime of Iran,

§  The dictator-populated United Nations,

§  The mal-educated millennials raised on leftist propaganda,

§  The bitter abortion-loving, man-hating feminists,

§  The pathological jealousy of all things successful,

§  On and on and on and on….all negative. [Bold text added by Blog Editor]

Of course, that ordinary guy was Barack Obama—a member of the infamous Choom drug-inhaling gang.

But his fans yearned to believe that Mr. Obama was not half-white but instead the Great Black Hope that would redeem Big Bad America from its racist past, and also that he was a successful author—but author Jack Cashill made a slam-dunk case in his blockbuster book, Deconstructing Obama: The Life, Loves, and Letters of America’s First Postmodern President, that it was Mr. Obama’s close pal, the unrepentant terrorist William Ayers, who actually wrote the book.

And they wanted to believe that Mr. Obama was a very honest guy, which is why they nodded their heads affirmatively when he said that in over 20 years of sitting in the pews of the “Reverend‚” Jeremiah Wright’s church, he never ever heard the preacher’s anti-American, anti-Semitic rants.

Throughout the campaign (and well into his occupation of the Oval Office), a group of 400 leftist, ahem, journalists decided that they didn’t like authentic journalists questioning Mr. Obama on everything from the Constitutional eligibility of his candidacy to his longtime relationships with radicals like William Ayers and anti-American, anti-Semitic bigwigs like Rev. Louis Farrakhan. To prop up their candidate of choice, and to go after any of his critics and questioners with a vengeance, they formed JournOlist.

Sure enough, this overwhelmingly leftwing and deeply corrupt group refused to ask even one question about why Mr. Obama used a state of Connecticut Social Security number when he hadn’t lived one day of his life in that state, why he lost his law license in 2002 (or if, in fact, he ever took the Bar exam), why Michelle’s law license was inactivated by court order, why Mr. Obama never released more than a one-page medical report…the list of unasked questions goes on and on.

And when any moderate or conservative journalist asked him about saying during his campaign that he had traveled to all 57 states—I think one left to go” (did he mean the 57 states of the Organization of the Islamic Conference?), or in office when he stated that the people in Austria speak Austrian, or referred to military corpsmen as corpse men, or described his grandmother as “a typical white person‚”—you get the picture—the media whores immediately pounced, accusing any critic of being a “racist.‚”

How clueless they were and are to this day of their own rank racism, in essence telling Americans that they’re not allowed to criticize a black man because he’s not smart enough or strong enough to take it…but they are and so they’ll defend him by insulting his critics. Cannot make this up!

THE COUP D’├ëTAT CABAL

America has had unlikely presidents before Mr. Obama, but none quite as unlikely. How did this happen?

For almost an entire century, and certainly since the tumultuous ‘60s when Bill and Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin and other far-leftists reared their seditious heads, the left has been looking for the one defining figure to get them over the goal line, that being literally overthrowing the United States of America—the land they loathe.

Jimmy Carter was a start, but the Dolly Parton fantasizer lasted only one term before America came to its senses and elected the genuine conservative Ronald Reagan. After enjoying two terms of peace and prosperity, Americans once again voted for Republican George H.W. Bush, only to boot him out in favor of the charming southerner Bill Clinton, whose victory, political pundits claimed, was helped immeasurably by the phony third-party candidacy of Texas billionaire business mogul Ross Perot, who bowed out of the race at the last minute, de facto throwing his votes to the man who would become known forever as “slick Willy.‚”

Clinton’s eight long years lasted largely because of a strong economy, job growth, a surge in homeownership, and Family & Medical Leave for 20-million Americans, et al—in spite of non-stop scandals, impeachment, perjury and the loss of the his law license, the accusation of rape, the stained blue dress, the pathetic wife, the mishandling of terror attacks, the proliferation of corporate scandals (numbering 86), allowing a floodgate of un-vetted immigrants into the country, the massacre at Waco, Texas, the colossal failure of Hillarycare, betraying America by selling advanced U.S. missile technology to our enemy, the People’s Republic of China, and threatening little Elian Gonzales at gunpoint.

Once again, America came to its senses and elected #43, the former two-term Governor of Texas George W. Bush, the son of #41. The affable junior enjoyed two terms until the coup d’├ętat cabal was ready for their full-on assault on America. But “W‚” facilitated that assault by joining the left in their fantasy that Islam was “the religion of peace‚” and acknowledged himself that his “Mission Accomplished‚” banner was a bad idea, and that he failed to push for immigration reform. Others cite a skyrocketing deficit and that he waged two costly and ineffective wars (in Afghanistan and Iraq).

Over all these years, leftist heavy hitters were developing their takeover. Armed with multibillions of dollars from a handful of powerful America-detesting progressives, they covered every base, starting with the media whores who proved to be the easiest to buy and control. Next they bought every member of the Democrat Party, instructing them to sing one tune and one tune only throughout the candidate’s presidential campaign and his entire tenure…and that they, the real brains behind the coup, would provide both the tune and the lyrics.

Next, they recruited Valerie Jarrett, a longtime Chicago pal of Mr. Obama, as his consigliere to basically run the presidency, and speech writers to formulate every single solitary word that Mr. Obama spoke, even demanding that he use a Teleprompter to address a kindergarten class!

Within weeks or months, the honchos-in-chief delivered to their hand-picked puppet—that would be the guy who rubbed the genie lamp—the massive to-do list they had been working on for decades:

§  11,000 pages of the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare, aka socialized medicine),

§  Mountains of Environmental Protection Agency regulations that effectively killed the coal industry and other domestic energy sources, among other Draconian rules.

§  A blueprint for Common Core, aka socialized education (read, leftist propaganda),

§  An elaborate plan to destroy the military, as Matt Barber¬† spells out here, by, among other things, purging military commanders, enacting Rules of Engagement that militate against our success in combat, cutting military pay and benefits, cutting missile defense, et al.

§  The introduction of members of the Islamic supremacist group, the Muslim Brotherhood, into the highest reaches of the American government.

§  Weaponized the Internal Revenue Service and, we now learn, the FBI, the DOJ, the DHS, and other agencies of the U.S. Government, a function, Tom Basile writes in Forbes, of Obama’s “dangerous arrogance of power.‚”

§  On and on and on and on.

ENTER THE GENIE SLAYER

The Obama regime, as Americans have now learned, was steeped, indeed marinating, in illegality and corruption. There was virtually no dirty trick they believed was beyond the pale, no department (FBI, anyone?) and no operative (Seth Rich, anyone?) beyond exploitable or dispensable.

They believed this because every single poll told them (and told America) that Barack Obama’s successor would be his former Sec. of State, Hillary Clinton, a woman who had elevated corruption, dishonesty, and malfeasance to a virtual art form.

In other words, with Hillary’s election, their dirty secrets would remain with them.

They welcomed the seventeen Republican candidates who ran against Hillary for president in 2016, especially the mega-mogul Donald J. Trump whose inexperience in the political world and colorful, tabloid-rich background made him the perfect target for their oppo-research team to skewer.

But as candidate Trump systematically leveled every opponent and Hillary was left to face the guy who labeled her “crooked Hillary‚”—inspiring the huge crowds he attracted to chant “Lock Her Up! Lock Her Up!‚”—Ms. Glass Ceiling began to devolve, relying on Democrat operatives like Donna Brazile to give her questions to upcoming debates and forcing her to commit unforced errors like calling Trump supporters, a month before the election, “a basket of deplorables.‚”

When the Obama/Hillary crew finally smelled the coffee of possible defeat, they hatched a plan to destroy a President Trump if, in fact, that eventuality came to pass. And it did. And they launched their plan—to produce a phony dossier and to accuse President Trump of colluding with Russia in order to win the election. Relevant to mention here that it was over a million dollars from Hillary’s campaign coffers that paid for MI6 agent Christopher Steele to compile the dossier.

Just as their moneybags donors had directed them during the Obama years, both the media whores and the Democrats stuck to the script—Trump-Russia, Trump-Russia, Trump-Russia. Former FBI Director Robert Mueller was anointed by another former Obama operative, Ron Rosenstein, to conduct the investigation.

Mr. Mueller hired—exclusively, with not one exception—Democrat prosecutors and lawyers, most of them contributors to Hillary’s campaign, to help destroy the newly inaugurated President Trump. They labored for over a year, with the oleaginous top dog on the intelligence committee, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), leading the charge.

The result: The stunning revelations of widespread, massive, endemic corruption and collusion with Russia—by the Democrats themselves! But not one scintilla of evidence against President Trump.

Yesterday, February 24, 2018, reporter Gabby Morrongiello of The Washington Examiner quoted former White House advisor Sebastian Gorka, who commented on the four-page memo released a few weeks ago by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA), which accused FBI and Justice Department officials of abusing their power and deliberately misleading the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) to gain permission to surveil former Trump adviser Carter Page because of his contacts in Moscow.


“Remember,‚” Gorka announced at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, “we’re only at the beginning of FISA-gate, which eventually will be Obama-gate.

“It’s not the Ben Rhodes of the world, it’s not the John Brennans, it’s not the Susan Rices, who are only culpable for the criminal regime we had that spied on Americans illegally,” Gorka said, citing several senior Obama administration officials. “Guess what—somebody had to let them.”

“And guess what?” Gorka continued. “It’s the last president of the United States.”

Rep. Nunes apparently agrees, as he identifies Mr. Obama to WorldNetDaily.com as being the person who was really in collusion with Russia “for eight years and setting the stage for orchestrating a conspiracy theory of collusion between Moscow and Donald Trump during the 2016 election.‚”

Daniel Greenfield writes that “the Obama era is over. It was wiped from the pages of history in one night that left Congress and the White House in Republican hands. Obama’s…frantic efforts to campaign for Hillary did no good. The public…made it clear that he did not matter. Obama once thought that he belonged to the ages. Now he belongs in the rubbish bin.‚”

Maybe… but maybe not. President Trump not only wiped out any shred of Mr. Obama’s so-called legacy, he effectively destroyed the fantasy of a magical genie that has guided the former community organizer’s lifelong obsessive mission to destroy America.

Is it too much for the rest of us to fantasize that the man who once chanted “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for‚” will have a prosecutor replace the G in genie with a G for Gitmo?

We Knew Morality



Once upon a time long ago, men of valor who credited God Almighty as the source Natural Rights that no man has the authority to dissolve; won independence from an oppressive government. Those men of valor set out to find the best government for its citizens in which the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness would be ordained to ‘We the People’ and protected by a good government that operated on behalf and behest of the People under the Judeo-Christian principles of the Almighty Creator.

Then the evil virus - Secular Humanism - infected the good government diluting the morals of We the American People of the United States of America.

Government gridlock ensued after Secular Humanist morality has been slowly overpowering the People who still stand behind the Natural Rights endued by our Creator as opposed to elite-men (and women) who stand behind the dictates of a tyrannical government dictating to the People what is right and wrong.

We Knew Morality

By Justin O. Smith
Sent: 2/24/18 12:20 AM

Nothing in U.S. history has ever happened that can legitimately justify restricting Americans' natural and God-granted right to self-defense, in any manner, and to arm themselves towards that purpose, including mass shootings at our schools. To the contrary, these atrocious and horrible events show precisely the reason America must reject the far-left Democrats' and liberal Christians' insistence on "gun free" zones and more gun control, since the real problem is found in a society that has embraced every immoral act imaginable as normal, rejected Our Founders as "racist" conquerors and rejected God in our schools.

One can make any argument one chooses, but guns are only the means of these murderous rampages, not the cause. There is something deeper and diseased in the soul of our society, and it transcends the gun debate.

As usual, the opportunists and gun control apologists wasted not one second to exploit the tragedy of seventeen murdered students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, on February 14th, to pursue stronger gun control measures for political gain; and for all their denials and lies, make no mistake, the anti-gun coalition's goal is to rid the country of firearms and erode and eventually eradicate the Second Amendment, come hell or high water, through new laws, outright bans, and ultimately the confiscation of firearms in America.

George Skelton, an LA Times journalist, opined shortly after the Parkland, Florida shooting that "mass shootings will continue in this country until we finally ban mass shooting weapons". This simplistic view fails to note criminals will still acquire these weapons, and it ignores any personal responsibility of the perpetrators.

Despite Chicago's strict gun laws and its attempts to outlaw firearms in the city altogether, there were more than 4,000 shooting victims in Chicago in 2016, according to NPR. Still to this day, Chicago continues to suffer from a massive number of firearm related crimes.


Most of these murderers are the product of atheistic, secular humanist homes and public schools, which have generally not allowed Judeo-Christian morality any real voice or advocate, and our overly permissive society has enabled them, through moral relativism and Marxist cultural garbage, by blaming society for their troubles. This indoctrination blinds the weak-minded to their own bad choices, to the point that they see nothing wrong with taking a human life, for whatever the reason in their twisted and evil hearts and minds.


Dr. Erwin Lutzer, pastor emeritus of the Moody Memorial Church in Chicago wrote in 1986: "We have not yet seen the final result of humanism in the United States. We are still coasting on the values derived from our Judeo-Christian heritage." Unfortunately, the immoral philosophy of socialists and their atheistic logic has put the brakes on morality in our country, since 1962, and America is witnessing the tragic results.

The anger and anguish of those who lost family and friends at Parkland, Florida and through other gun violence is understandable, but passion and demands, for the violation of decent law-abiding citizens' rights and the erosion of individual liberty, are not a substitute for cogent thought and critical analysis. Whether these psychopaths use guns, cars, planes, knives, axes or hammers, murderers will always find something to use as a weapon, as seen across America's history.

In 1927, a disgruntled teacher detonated over five-hundred pounds of TNT at Bath Consolidated School, in Bath, Michigan, killing 44 people. This wasn't the first bombing in America's history either; there was the 1886 Haymarket Square bombing in Chicago, that killed eight, and there was also the 1920 Manhattan bombing that killed thirty people.

Recently, Reverend Paul Blair, a Baptist minister with Reclaiming America for Christ, made the following pointed observation: "In the school parking lot, every fourth car was a pickup truck, most of which had a rifle rack in the back window, a deer rifle hung on the rack and the windows rolled down. We never heard of such a thing as a school shooting. We knew right from wrong. We knew morality. Most of the students went to church as did most of our teachers."

On February 22nd, Wayne LaPierre, executive vice-president of the National Rifle Association, spoke before the Conservative Political Action Conference, stating: "Evil walks among us, and God help us if we don't arm our schools and protect our kids ... To stop a bad guy with a gun, it takes a good guy with a gun."

At the same American Conservative Union CPAC meeting, Dana Loesch stated: "The government can't keep you safe, and some people want us to give up our firearms and rely solely upon the protection of the same government that's already failed us numerous times ... ".

No matter one's position on firearms, if communities really want to protect their children, they must place trained and fully capable, proven, armed guards in our schools, not spectators and cowards such as Scot Peterson [PoliceOne.com sums up plusses & minuses], a guard at Stoneman Douglas, who stood outside the school for four minutes and did nothing. We must make certain any potential mass murderer understands that schools are no longer "gun free" zones, and hard righteous men and women stand prepared to end their life with extreme prejudice.

I Timothy 5:8 says a man who "does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household" has "denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever". How much worse is the man who would allow his family to be violated and murdered in his presence? Or stand outside a school as a slaughter ensues?

Commanded by Jesus to love our neighbor as ourselves, if we fail to do everything we possibly can to protect the innocent, are we truly seeking to obey these red-letter words?

Aside from all the aforementioned, our right to stand against any tyrannical government, foreign and domestic, presents the foremost reason Americans' must retain our right to own high capacity semi-automatic weapons. While Christians are not to engage in vengeance, the right to self-defense is as ingrained in the history of God's people as it is in that of humanity, from America's War for Independence to resistance and revolts against Nazi Socialism and Communism. And, if not for good people using arms to defend themselves against evil people and especially evil governments, no freedom would exist on earth today.

Mass murders won't be stopped in America by banning guns, but they might be slowed or halted by ensuring all children reach adulthood with substantive hope, meaning and purpose in their lives, beyond immediate and material satisfaction. We can no longer allow our children to be dragged under by the ongoing nihilistic currents in our society, that hold nothing matters, nothing is good, and nothing is evil, and all is centered on self.

The solution lies in advancing absolute truths in our schools once again, and God's truth, too.

Warner Email an Anthology about Kafir


John R. Houk, Editor
Posted February 24, 2018


The theme of Bill Warner’s to his email subscribers is about Islam’s terminology for non-Muslims and how the Islamic revered writings tell Muslims how to treat them. The “them” being “kafir”.

Rape is Sunna, Not a Sin

In Islam, Kafir women taken as slaves in jihad were raped with Mohammed’s approval.  Koran: 4:24 -  "And all married women (are forbidden unto you) save those whom your right hands (sword hand) possess.”

According to Islamic doctrine, rape & sex slavery is not a sin. Rape of the Kafir is permitted by Mohammed and Allah in the Koran, enshrined in Sharia law. Under Sharia, Kafir women can be raped and there is no penalty. Islam is the only political system in the world that includes rules for rape and war. Rape is a tactic of jihad.

Apologists like to argue that Koran 4:24 only applies to times of war. In Islam, the natural state between Islam and Kafir world is war, dar al harb, not peace. Peace, dar al Islam, comes only after Sharia is implemented and there is 100% submission.

Amount of Islamic Text Devoted to Kafir



More Islamic reasons condoning rape--Islam divides the world into two camps:

1) the believers in Allah and Mohammed his prophet, who are the best of all people and 2) their enemies, the rest of humanity, or Kafirs. Islam is so concerned with Kafirs (non-Muslims) that the Koran describes in detail their treatment. Kafir is considered the lowliest of all beings, filthy, defiled and hated by Allah. They can be deceived, robbed, beat, raped, and murdered by Muslims. 

There are constant ongoing rapes by Muslims against Kafirs around the world. This is another example of the continuous 1400 year history of jihad. These crimes are political statements with ramifications for all other cultures, especially Western civilization. The most disturbing aspect of the Islamic rapes of Kafirs is not the act itself, but the Kafir dhimmi response of cowardly submission by ignoring those rapes.

Political Islam essay:  Kafir with a Capital "K"

[Email intro to essay:]

The worst word in any language is not the "n" word, it's the "K" word. In Islam, the Kafir (non-muslim) is a political class subjected to negative political consequences. I use Kafir with a capital 'K' to denote its importance.

[The email places the video at this point. However, both the essay and the video description have similar but different texts. At this point I am placing the essay which in not in the email.]

Kafir with a Capital “K”

Feb 21, 2018 | by Bill Warner

I came to my study of Islam late in life, but I had studied religious text all of my life starting being a teenager. I’ve studied Torah through Orthodox Synagogue. I’ve studied the New Testament a fair amount. I’ve studied Buddhist Sutras, I’ve studied the Bhagavad Gita, I’ve studied a lot of religious texts, and then I came to Islam. Islam was very different, because it was so concerned with the non-Muslim. You see, when you read Buddha’s Sutras, it’s concerned with how to be a Buddhist. It doesn’t concern itself with non-Buddhist.

Now here’s the problem – not only did Islamic doctrine concern itself with the Non-Muslim, the treatment of the Non-Muslin was terrible. There were two treatments of the Non-Muslim – one is religious in that they went to hell, but the other is political, what happened to them in life today. So we need a special name for the non-Muslim, because non-Muslim is a neutral term, and yet the non-Muslim is not treated neutrally. They can be enslaved, tortured, raped, lied to, deceived, plotted against. These are not neutral things, these are political terms and they’re very harmful.

Now the Koran has a word for the non-Muslim. It’s called Kafir. K-A-F-I-R. Now, like everything else in the Koran, the meaning slightly shifts over time. At first the word Kafir just means someone who is not grateful, or who covers the truth. But as time goes on, finally the non-Muslim, the Kafir, can be destroyed in Jihad. So there’s a progression of different meanings the Kafir but in the end the Kafir can be harmed. And that’s the reason I don’t like being a Kafir. Now you all know I like to measure things, and so one of the things I measured was how much of the Koran, the Sira and the Hadith are about the non-Muslim. The answer – fifty one percent.

That is, most of Islamic doctrine concerns itself with the Kafir, which is a political problem, not just a religious problem. Now then, the Koran uses lot of different words for the non-Muslim that are religious. People of the book, pagan, polytheist, Jew, Christian apostate, infidel, but all of those who did not submit to the Sharia suffered a political consequence, which was some form of harm – death, torture, execution, assassination. These were political ends.

Now, Muslims like to tell us, we’ve seen, the people of the book, Christians and Jews, they’re not really Kafirs. They’re brothers in the family of Abraham. Let’s see how these brothers in the family of Abraham are treated. Do you think the Jews that they were executed, as people of the book, felt any different than the pagan who was executed? No.

The political consequence is the same. Submission of some form or another. There are different classes of Kafirs in the Koran. We have atheist, polytheist, deist, idolaters, and then Jews who believe in revelation but don’t believe in Mohammed’s revelation. But in the end, everyone’s a Kafir who does not believe in the Shahada. The Shahada is ‘There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is his prophet.’

I view Islam as a political system, and the Sharia extends to all other religions, which is a political thing. They must all submit and run their lives according to the Sharia. The Kafir is a political class. Unfortunately, historically, their victims stand and suffer alone. That is, the Buddhists suffer and who knows about it? The suffering of the Africans under Jihad involved in slavery, who knows about that? The Hindus know about their own suffering, but they don’t really know about the suffering of the Christians who were in what was originally called Asia Minor, or what is called Turkey today. So, although the people suffer, they suffer alone. And I want to use the word Kafir to show that they all are the same political class.

Now I’m coming to one of my main points. Any time I make a video about religion that includes Christians and Jews, I get hate mail about that. People hate the Jews, they hate the Christians, they hate the Jesuits, they hate the Catholics, they hate the Protestants. Here’s the thing, go ahead and hate ’em, but know this, you, the hater, you’re going to suffer the same political result as the Jew, the Christian and everyone else.

Get the picture. You may not like other religions, but in the end, whether you’re an atheist or not, you’re going to suffer the same political consequences. This is the reason I want to use the word Kafir – to unite us politically. We’re all the same in a political class. Now then, how do you know that if you use Kafir as the right word?

And by the way, I use Kafir with a capital K, because I use it to mean a special meaning – all those who suffer under Islam. Here’s how you know you’re using the right word. You know who doesn’t want you to use that word? Muslims. You see, it’s their little dirty word that’s a secret. Now, we have a word in the English language that we can’t use and we call it the N-word. Well, Kafir is the K-word in Islam. So, Muslims hate it, which is the proof that we need to use it.

In the Arabic, the plural of Kafir is Kuffar, K-U-F-F-A-R. But I don’t use that. I want to use the English plural Kafirs, plural with an S, because I want the word to become adapted and used. We must understand that all Kafirs are the same in the end. So, therefore, we need to use the same word for each other. Thank you.

Years ago when the al Shabaab jihadi group from Somalia attacked the mall in Kenya, they gathered the crowd together and asked who were Muslims and let them go. According to the media, they then started killing the non-Muslims who were left. But non-Muslims is not the word what the terrorists would have used. No, they would have called them Kafirs (actually they would have called them the Arabic plural of kafir, kuffar. Kafirs is the standard English plural form).
