  1. Remember this woman? I introduced you to her yesterday. She’s the anti’Semite who assaulted 3 Jews in NY, and then was released without bail do to DeBlasio and Cuomos’ latest failure at governance, bail reform.

    You’ll never guess what this woman did upon her release.

    She assaulted yet another woman. No word yet on whether this one is a Jew as well. Can you believe it? I mean what were the chances she’s do it a fourth time, right?

    It’s OK though, DeBlasio says it’s Trump’s fault.

    “A Brooklyn miscreant accused of slapping three Orthodox Jewish women last week struck again on Sunday and was busted for assaulting another woman.

    A day after she was released without bail on charges stemming from the Friday attack, Tiffany Harris was charged with assault for slugging a 35-year-old in the face on Eastern Parkway near Underhill Avenue in Prospect Heights at about 9:15 a.m., according to police.

    It’s unclear if Sunday’s victim is Jewish — and police weren’t treating the incident as a hate crime. The victim suffered swelling and bruising to her right eye from the pummeling, police said.”

  2. And these idiots aren’t just releasing them, they’re rewarding them for their criminal behavior.

    “De Blasio giving freed NYC inmates MetroCards and gift cards”

    “So sorry we had to lock you up — please accept these parting gifts as an expression of our hope, it won’t happen again!

    Mayor Bill de Blasio’s latest soft-on-crime initiative has workers stationed on Rikers Island presenting newly released jailbirds with free transit passes and two $25 debit cards each, The Post has learned.

    Plans even call for the addition of prepaid, “burner”-style cellphones and drawstring bags for the ex-inmates to carry their swag, a source familiar with the program said.

    The “crime pays” giveaways build on another de Blasio policy — revealed by The Post last month — that showers freebies including Mets tickets on prisoners being released under the state’s new bail-reform law.

    Those goodies are intended to serve as incentives so the defendants return to court as ordered, but the new program covers everyone who’s released from Department of Correction custody, the source said.

    That includes cons who have finished their jail terms or been sentenced to time served.

    Law enforcement officials were outraged over the swag bags.

    “It’s a sad state of affairs when the city bends over backward to reward criminals instead of protecting the victims of their crimes,” one source lamented. “What’s next? Free limo service back home?””

  3. At least one Democrat is willing to point out the elephant in the room and call out those who enable and ignore the anti-Semites, the rest of the Democrat party.

    “A Democrat Blames His Democratic Party For Upsurge In Antisemitism-He’s Right (Videos)”

    “Saturday night saw the seventh violent anti-Semitic attack in recent days. A machete-wielding attacker stabbed five people in the home of Rabbi Chaim Rottenberg during a Chanukah celebration in Monsey, New York. democratic blames party Antisemitism

    Perhaps the most honest reaction to the anti-Semitic attack came from a member of the Democratic Party. Former New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind said what most pundits are afraid to say, the Antisemitism originates with members of Mr. Hikind’s own party, the Democrats:

    Hikind is correct. Antisemitism is coming from the Democratic Party and the left. Even more than the Democrats and leftists who are anti-Semitic, feeding the hatred is the fact that Democrats and leftists who are not anti-Semitic cowardly refuse to expose and/or fight the Antisemitism rampant in their ranks.

    It started a long time ago, my first article warning that the Democratic party was becoming anti-Semitic was posted on January 29, 2007. Eleven years later, the party’s Antisemitism had metastasized and infected much of the party.”

    “Denver Sticking To Sanctuary Policy Following Arrest Of Hit-And-Run Suspect Who Was Already Deported Six Times”

    “Juan Sanchez, an illegal alien who was deported from the U.S. six times, was charged with vehicular homicide and fleeing the scene of an accident.

    Denver reiterated its intention to release Sanchez if he makes bond, and will not conduct a transfer of custody to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

    ICE criticized Denver for its position, noting that individuals with significant criminal histories are able to be released back into the community when local police don’t cooperate with the agency.

    Denver officials do not plan on fully cooperating with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) if they release an illegal alien who was deported six times before getting arrested for fleeing the scene of a deadly hit-and-run accident.

    Juan Sanchez, a Mexican national living in the U.S. illegally, is accused of striking a pedestrian in the Denver area with a vehicle and immediately fleeing the scene. If Sanchez — who lives in a state that largely limits cooperation with ICE — is able to make bond, his release back into the community could pose another showdown between local officials and federal immigration authorities.

    The City and County of Denver reiterated its position on transferring custody of illegal aliens when approached by the Daily Caller News Foundation about Sanchez’s case.

    A Colorado woman, Annette Conquering Bear, was running an errand Dec. 17 when an oncoming SUV struck her while she tried to cross an intersection. The vehicle drove away without stopping, according to the Denver Police Department. A witness to the accident flagged down a nearby ambulance, but Conquering Bear was pronounced dead at the scene.

    Law enforcement was able to locate the vehicle, a white GMC Sierra crew cab truck, and arrest its driver, Sanchez. The 39-year-old Mexican national was charged with vehicular homicide and fleeing the scene of an accident. Officials set his bond at $500,000.”

  5. Naming names.

    https://www.conservativereview.com/news/trump-administration-names-shames-worlds-9-worst-countries-religious-persecution/

    “Trump administration names and shames the world’s 9 worst countries for religious persecution”

    “Last week, largely under the radar amid the heavy focus on impeachment votes and subsequent House-Senate drama on Capitol Hill, the State Department issued designations of the world’s worst countries for religious liberty.

    Under the terms laid out in the International Religious Freedom Act of 1998, the State Department identifies various countries that engage in or tolerate “systematic, ongoing, and egregious violations of religious freedom” as “countries of particular concern” (CPCs). The law also stipulates that the administration put out an annual report documenting the state of religious freedom around the world. The State Department announced the latest report back in June.

    According to a statement from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo issued Friday, this year’s administration-designated CPCs are:

    Burma
    China
    Eritrea
    Iran
    North Korea
    Pakistan
    Saudi Arabia
    Tajikistan
    Turkmenistan
    A step below that, the statement adds, there is a lower-tier “special watch list” (SWL) for governments that have engaged in or allowed “severe violations of religious freedom.” Countries on that list:

    Comoros
    Russia
    Uzbekistan
    Cuba
    Nicaragua
    Nigeria
    Sudan
    One country that actually managed to make it off the CPC list this year was Sudan, a result of the removal of dictator Omar al-Bashir earlier this year. “Sudan was moved to the SWL due to significant steps taken by the civilian-led transitional government to address the previous regime’s ‘systematic, ongoing, and egregious violations of religious freedom,’” the administration’s statement explains.

    In 2016, the the international religious freedom statute was amended to create a designation for non-state religious freedom violators as “entities of particular concern.” This year’s non-state designations include multiple jihadist terror organizations, including ISIS, al Qaeda, Boko Haram, and the Taliban.

    “These designations underscore the United States’ commitment to protect those who seek to exercise their freedom of religion or belief,” Pompeo said in the statement.”

    “Families of Americans killed in Afghanistan sue contractors over alleged Taliban payments”

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/families-of-americans-killed-in-afghanistan-sue-contractors

    “Families of more than 140 U.S. service members and contractors killed or wounded in Afghanistan are suing U.S. and international contractors, alleging that those companies paid the Taliban for security services — giving the group money that later funded deadly attacks on U.S. troops.

    The lawsuit, filed Friday by families of 143 troops and contractors killed and wounded between 2009 and 2017, seeks damages under the federal Anti-Terrorism Act.

    “While these men and women worked to rebuild post-invasion Afghanistan, they were attacked by a Taliban-led terrorist insurgency that Defendants helped finance,” the lawsuit says.

    According to The Wall Street Journal, which first reported the lawsuit, the companies named in the lawsuit include a host of U.S. government contractors, including two top contractors for the U.S. Agency for International Developments. Companies are alleged to have often paid the Taliban through local subcontractors, who then in turn funneled payments or hired Taliban guards.

    The lawsuit says that the companies were all large Western companies with lucrative businesses in the country and so allegedly paid the Taliban in order to protect their interests from attacks.

    “Those protection payments aided and abetted terrorism by directly funding an al-Qaeda-backed Taliban insurgency that killed and injured thousands of Americans,” the lawsuit says.

    The filing says that the lawsuit is based on evidence including interviews with a number of confidential witnesses with direct and indirect knowledge, internal company documents, declassified government documents and congressional testimony and investigations.”

  7. Especially since this news broke today as well.

    “Taliban council agrees to cease-fire in Afghanistan”

    https://apnews.com/caa4c5aaf88e982ed0cdb4e132b0d89c?utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=AP&utm_campaign=SocialFlow

    “The Taliban’s ruling council agreed Sunday to a temporary cease-fire in Afghanistan, providing a window in which a peace agreement with the United States can be signed, officials from the insurgent group said. They didn’t say when it would begin.

    A cease-fire had been demanded by Washington before any peace agreement could be signed. A peace deal would allow the U.S. to bring home its troops from Afghanistan and end its 18-year military engagement there, America’s longest.

    The White House said it would have no comment.

    The U.S. wants any deal to include a promise from the Taliban that Afghanistan would not be used as a base by terrorist groups. The U.S. currently has an estimated 12,000 troops in Afghanistan.

    The Taliban chief must approve the cease-fire decision but that was expected. The duration of the cease-fire was not specified but it was suggested it would last for 10 days. It was also not specified when the cease-fire would begin.”

    “Gunman Kills Two at a Texas Church, Is Killed by Armed Churchgoers

    Gov. Greg Abbott: “I am grateful for the church members who acted quickly to take down the shooter and help prevent further loss of life”

    “A gunman opened fire at a church near Fort Worth, Texas and managed to kill two people before armed churchgoers intervened and doubtlessly saved many more lives. The gunman was killed at the scene.

    USA Today reports:

    A man pulled out a shotgun inside a North Texas church on Sunday and opened fire, killing two people, authorities said. It could have been far worse.

    Two congregants, both volunteer members of the church’s security team, drew their weapons and confronted the gunman, fatally shooting him and saving an “untold number of lives” at West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, a town of about 17,000 people near Fort Worth.

    Their actions, described as “heroic” by the Texas Department of Public Safety, brought a quick end to an attack that remained under investigation on Sunday night. Authorities have not provided information about a possible motive.

    Officials have not released the names of the victims or the gunman, whom FBI Special Agent in Charge Matthew DeSarno said had roots in the area but is “relatively transient.”

    “This team responded quickly and within six seconds, the shooting was over. Two of the parishioners who were volunteers of the security force drew their weapons and took out the killer immediately, saving untold number of lives,” said Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, who also hailed the state’s gun laws.

    “We lost two great men today,” Britt Farmer, the church’s senior minister said, “but it could have been a lot worse.””
