      Will not say his name, because name recognition is one of the things he wants, but the Australian involved has been nick-named the Grafton Ghoul. Grafton, where he comes from, is a regional area in Northern New South Wales. Australians are expressing their condolences with the victims and innocents, and disgust at this pre-meditated murderer.

      Pray that our Lord God will send a deceiving spirit into the midst of Trump’s enemies. That He will confuse, cause disarray, expose their plans, and that their names, organizations, etc., will be revealed to those that support the President. That the simple minded hordes who support his enemies, and ours, will have their hearts, minds, eyes and ears opened to see themselves as being used, expose their crimes,seek repentance and divine justice be done.

      Pray the Lord put a hedge around the President, his family, and those who are truly loyal to him

      — For those of you who pray this daily and are on other boards; please place this prayer on those daily so that this petition to our Lord will spread, grow fervour and be heard

        The Obama Administration and their media collaborators promoted this evil chapter in American History. The media are propagandists throwing out false info, fake news. They can never be trusted. They are the contemporary version of Benedict Arnold.

      They’re blaming post 9/11 Islamaphobia, but let’s not forget it was Islamic Terrorists who did 9/11. And let’s not forget that many of them cheered when the towers fell.

        Just so happens, I did some research on such claims about islamophobia (the made-up phobia), including claims of it spiking post 9-11. Unfortunately for the narrative makers, assaults against Muslims, due to affiliation with Islam, actually dropped lower than its already very low percentage in the aftermath of 9-11.

        It’s also important to remember that different Islamic factions attack each other and have since Islam split over who would be Mo’s successor. Since the contributing percentage of inner-Islamic violence isn’t broken down within the stats, but includes such assaults, every case of “islamophobia” can’t be blamed on non-Muslims of any kind. Jews, on the other hand, still hold first place for being attacked because of religion. 

        We also need to remember that Islamic Prevaricators prevaricate. It’s Islamic Doctrine. Sixty-four percentage of Islamic Doctrine is political. Only 36% deals with any semblance of religion and it exists to compel support of the political. Islam is what it is.

        We won’t get any condemnation from Muslims against other Muslims for acts of violence, because the jihadists are shariah compliant. Infidels are guilty because they’re infidels. The chick at NYU and the Jihad Sisters in Congress are what they are. Shariah-compliant liars.

        The tarmac meeting was only a few days before Comey’s “she aint done nuthin’ ” speech.
        According the Lisa Page’s testimony, the DOJ was not allowing subpoena’s of HRC’s servers, and claiming “gross negligence” was “constitutionally vague” much earlier in the investigation. In other words, the fix was in well in advance.

        I would guess the tarmac meeting was to seal a deal… perhaps how Lynch would be rewarded, perhaps to discuss the follow-up insurance plan against DJT.

      You should resign from your position, if you have any honor.

        Yes and if it is a moslem or illegal that does the crime it takes forever to find this out. There is almost a blackout on info and it it is very slow coming. But let a white person and especially one that is not a liberal snowflake, be the perpetrator and the info is made available almost instantaneously And while I find this crime reprehensible and condone what this man did I have to say that I have never seen the world wide sympathy shown to other crime victims like these. And if the killer is moslem or illegal the news media is always questioning their motive in doing such a heinous crime but if he’s white,conservative or Christian then it’s a slam dunk and no debate and of course it’s the right and President Trump’s fault.

        The mosque shooting should be viewed with skepticism, since there is no clear evidence that it actually happened. Watch the video. It is comical. There may have been casualties, but I wouldn’t be surprised that nobody died.

        In the news reels, there is a guy with white pants on that has what looks like ketchup on his pants. Real blood gets dark fairly quickly. People that are shot are in extreme pain & scream and roll around on the ground in agony. There is immense amounts of blood that spews from people that aren’t killed instantly (in other words their lower brain is not destroyed, stopping the pumping of blood by the heart). None of this is present in the ultra low quality video of the alleged mosque massacre.

        The video is a frigging joke. I believe that is why the C_A companies, Google, Facebook, Youtube, etc want to delete the videos. They don’t want people to see the ridiculous farce of a false flag video that they produced. It is totally unbelievable.

        Somebody should check the local Craigslist ads in the prior month or two to see if crisis actors were being recruited for a first responder drill.

      On FOX there was so much talk about the Dossier and Steel and Page etc., but the pity of it was that none of the Talkers were putting the true facts together so they made an impact. Catherine Herridge, who I’ve always admired, did a monologue on Christopher Steele and she really missed the whole import of his part in the coup. She sounded like a Democrat reporter downplaying the whole thing. For instance, she said the Democrats paid for the dossier instead of saying the Hillary Clinton campaign AND the DNC spent millions on the fake dossier. She’s obviously a Democrat, which surprised me. Or maybe she hasn’t got a grasp on the facts of the coup. Tucker, Laura, and Hannity know the scoop, but the way they presented shockers tonight was really lame, loike they had too much other stuff they wanted to discuss, except Hasnnity of course, who gives such an overload nobody wants to listen anymore.

      At least this explains why CNN has pushed all their chips into the center of the table to destroy the President. They have allowed this farce to play out without ever acknowledging the role of a CNN entity. Instead they chose to continue embellishing the CNN iReport materials with more out right lies and twisted false reporting (more lies).

      The interesting part of this whole saga is the past relationships of allot of reporters on Fox, NBC and ABC with CNN, as ex-employees. In the case of a few FBN personalities they were actually “original and founding members” of the CNN Business reporting pool. Now fast forward to the political stance of those same networks today.

      Also, consider the number of CNN, NBC and CBS executives who had relatives working in the Obama Administration.

    Delingpole: 1.5 Trillion Reasons Why the Kids’ Climate Strike Is Dishonest, Stupid, Pointless
    https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/03/15/the-kids-climate-strike-is-based-on-one-massive-lie/

    Excerpt:

    In 2015, using the United Nations’ own calculations, Bjørn “Skeptical Environmentalist” Lomborg found that if every country in the world sticks to the “decarbonisation” promises it made at the Paris Climate Summit – unlikely by the way because the agreements are non-binding – then the resultant reduction, by the end of the century, in global warming may be 0.048°C (0.086°F).

    For kids who can understand fractions – again, unlikely these days – that’s less than one twentieth of one degree centigrade.

    The kids’ climate strike is stupid, dishonest and pointless. If only their teachers were clever enough to help them understand this.

      Ah, but grades are not necessarily an even measurement. Grading scales vary by state and in some cases by district or in CA by individual teacher🙄 Grade weighting for advanced classes varies too.

      Unfortunately colleges makes no adjustment for these wild differences in grading scales. ***The University of Washington has a computer program that does adjust so the playing field is level. 3 other schools adjust the GPA based on a standard weighting scale (example CA weights 6 for advanced classes most states weight 5). Yep that’s right 1 school in the whole country takes the varying scales into account and 4 total make some attempt. NONE of the Ivy league schools adjust anything.

      Result you have student A in California on a 90-100 or lower scale. Let’s say they had a couple of teachers that lowered their scale, seems to be most common in advanced math and science. So student A is smart, took mostly advanced classes and got lucky that an 85 was an A in calculus and chemistry thanks to benevolent teachers. Although student A had some B’s and a couple of C’s thanks to CA weighting student A still finishes with a 5.0.

      Student B is in a state with a 93-100 = an A or worse 95-100 = an A grading scale. Add to that their state may or may not weight grades. So student B slipped up and made a B by one point in a class or two. Now student B has a 4.8 or a 3.8 with no weighting. If student B had been in a different state student B would have had all A’s and weighted grades.

      Student A’s actual numerical is far lower than student B’s but the differences in the grading scale and weighting makes student A appear to be the better candidate.

      I did an in depth study on this years ago. It took me almost a year to get all the scales and even at that California was a big *, as was NV. In both states I covered the most populous districts ensuring the majority of the student population, easy in NV 2 districts gets almost 90%, but CA took forever 🙄

      You will find tougher grading scales and tougher graduation requirements in southern and some Midwestern states, which puts their students at a distinct disadvantage. Next time you see a low graduation rate, check out the state’s requirements and then look at the ones with high graduation rates and their requirements.

      Moral to the story, there lies, damn lies and then there are statistics.

      ***Sorry for the long post, just a topic I know a lot about.

    Why are the news services blurring the face of the new Zealand shooter?

    This is a total multi-national false flag. This whole shooting likely never happened. It was fabricated to give the MSM something to report on other than the beginnings of the prosecution of the criminals in the US government.

    I would like to show just how dishonest media is, by displaying two (#5/11 and #10/11) photos with their captions. One will show a barrier and say that the WALL replaced it, Technically not NEW, Technically a barrier and wall are not the SAME. The other shows just the WALL, which looks new and the road looks new. Does not show a pic of the prior wall which the article claims it replaced.
