    Mosque In Christchurch Shootings Tied To Radical Islamic Terrorists

    New evidence is emerging that several people may have been converted to radical Islam at the Al Noor mosque in New Zealand.

    One America’s Pearson Sharp has more on how several members of the mosque went on to join the terror group Al-Qaeda.

    Patrick Henry weighs-in today, March 21, 2019. The statement at the conclusion of this piece has been posted here previously. I find this larger pronouncement to reveal even more, the timelessness of his wisdom, his comprehension of human nature, and the perils that constantly threaten liberty.

    “It is natural for man to indulge in the illusions of hope and pride. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.”

        Is he still? The article says US District.

        “U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras in Washington appeared to go a step further than other judges in his order issued late Tuesday.

        Previous rulings focused on individual lease sales or permits. But Contreras said that when the U.S. Bureau of Land Management auctions public lands for oil and gas leasing, officials must consider emissions from past, present and foreseeable future oil and gas leases nationwide.”

        So, in order to drill for oil, we now need to know what the emissions will be from the traction? What if I wanted to use the oil for cake frosting? What type of machine will the oil be used on?

        This whole argument is stupid, IMHO.

        Texian: do you have any evidence of this? How does / would this work?

        The Bundy deal was supposed to work like this: politicians make a deal with a foreign nation to use land that has great mineral potential but is not yet managed by BLM; declare land to be BLM-managed land because the government can; get land under mgmt of BLM including by kicking off long-time land users such as Bundys; develop a contract (which had been the plan all along) with a company from a foreign country to use that land; get paid handsomely but secretly; get re-elected.

        Oil and gas land leases are already under fed govt management. The lease-with-drilling-rights get auctioned off, and these plots are typically leased for a ten year period. At extremely low costs.

        The auction process means that the land cannot be set aside by some superficial government act with the hidden intent to use it for mineral wealth.

        Anyone drilling on the land has to pay royalties to the fed government; this money gets divided partly between fed and the state where drilled.

        Everybody can see the accounting and the leases. This seems very different from the Bundy story.

      The Golan, which was captured by Syria during the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, and then captured from Syria by Israel during the Six-Day War, is, according to International Law concerning territories captured from the enemy during a war, the rightful territory of Israel.

Best policy for POTUS is to let sleeping dogs lie. This has got nothing to do with burying mosques, Nigeria, Brazil etc. There is no central control for the media.

Trump is “attacking” a dead “war hero” former Republican POTUS candidate, and the dossier was credible enough for it to be forwarded to the FBI for investigation by a former Republican POTUS candidate “war hero”. Kind of provides cover to all the other promoters of the dossier, don’t it? I hope the POTUS realizes this was not a smart thing to do. I want him to win in 2020.

        Korrupt Kongress Klowns and everyone else in the gov’t that has a need to know classified information should have to go through the full background information process and evaluation that civilian contractors must complete . . . no exceptions . . . commensurate with the level of classified information that they will be given access to.

    FOX was one of the last media voices for the general public that was for the most part reported fairly on Pres. Trump. IMO the vast majority of the general public will not really know to seek out a conservative news outlet like OANN. They will think FOX too has turned against Pres. Trump too. The left take over of FOX I find disheartening due to the fact that our Pres. Trump supported a lot of the shows on there i.e. Fox and Friends, Hannity and Tucker. The left is strategizing for 2020 by snuffing out conservative media ahead of the game. The propaganda ministry and the reich press chamber part deux begins. It is outrageous to me that they hired Biden’s aide, Donna Brazile and Paul Ryan.

Responding to Trump’s renewed attacks on the late Sen. John McCain, Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) went so far as to resurface his previous comparison of the president’s actions to those of Hitler.
    In an interview with NBC News, Clyburn noted that he had once been asked if he has ever seen a toxic political climate like today’s, and that while he hadn’t, he has studied ones like it. ~~~> “Adolf Hitler was elected chancellor of Germany.<~~~ And he went about the business of discrediting institutions to the point that people bought into it,” he said.' – from Communist News Net, CNN

    The historically challenged Clyburn (and the geniuses at CNN who went along with him) claims to have studied German history. He must have failed that class because old Dolph Schikelgruber never got elected to anything. He was appointed Chancellor by the elected President Hindenberg.

    FIRE statement on campus free speech executive order
    by FIRE

    March 21, 2019
    Since 1999, FIRE has defended freedom of expression on our nation’s campuses by fighting for public universities to honor the First Amendment and for private universities to fulfill their voluntary promises of free speech and academic freedom. Today’s executive order directs federal agencies to “take appropriate steps” to “promote free inquiry” at institutions that receive federal research and education grants, including through compliance with the First Amendment or fulfillment of their institutional promises. To the extent that today’s executive order asks colleges and universities to meet their existing legal obligations, it should be uncontroversial.

    FIRE will watch closely to see if today’s action furthers the meaningful, lasting policy changes that FIRE has secured over two decades — or results in unintended consequences that threaten free expression and academic freedom. We note that the order does not specify how or by what standard federal agencies will ensure compliance, the order’s most consequential component. FIRE has long opposed federal agency requirements that conflict with well-settled First Amendment jurisprudence. We will continue to do so.

    FIRE knows from years of experience that censorship silences students and faculty from across the ideological and political spectrum. Any principled and effective defense of freedom of expression must protect student and faculty expressive rights without regard to viewpoint. To secure the benefits of the “marketplace of ideas” for campus communities and for our nation as a whole, all students and faculty must be free to peacefully speak their minds.

    As our work demonstrates, campus censorship is a real and continuing problem. We appreciate the executive branch’s attention to this issue. As a proudly nonpartisan organization, FIRE will continue to lead the fight for campus speech rights and academic freedom regardless of the political party in power or the popularity of the speech at issue. The First Amendment and freedom of expression require no less.

    U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras blocks oil-drilling in Wyoming because of climate change
    By Rick Moran

    An outrageous ruling from a federal judge will halt hundreds of oil and gas drilling projects across 500 square miles in Wyoming because he says the government did not adequately take into account climate change when granting the leases on public lands.

    Talk about out-of-control Judiciary.

    http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2019/03/judge_blocks_oil_drilling_in_wyoming_because_of_climate_change.html

    A federal judge temporarily blocked new oil lease auctions in Wyoming on Tuesday after finding the Department of the Interior “did not sufficiently consider climate change” when proposing the lease sales, The Washington Post reports.

    Washington D.C. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras ruled the government violated federal law and did not fully study the environmental impact of oil development on 300,000 acres of federal land. (RELATED: Federal Oil And Gas Lease Sales Break $1 Billion In 2018, Nearly Triple Previous Record)

    Contreras did not void leases already sold, but he ordered the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to redo the environmental reviews used to approve the leases. The BLM must include in the redone reviews the effects
    of each new oil well on overall emissions in the U.S., including the pumped oil’s downstream effects, Contreras’s ruling said.

    “Given the national, cumulative nature of climate change, considering each individual drilling project in a vacuum deprives the agency and the public of the context necessary to evaluate oil and gas drilling on federal land before irretrievably committing to that drilling,” he wrote, according to WaPo.

    Former President Barack Obama appointed Contreras to the federal bench in March 2012.

      ——————————————————————————————————-
      As I pointed out yesterday, the above is an impossibility. It is IMPOSSIBLE to evaluate EACH NEW WELL on those proposed leases, because the wells haven’t yet been drilled. So their outputs – and hence downstream emission footprints – cannot be determined in advance.

      The judge isn’t stupid, he knows he’s asking for an impossiblity. But the point is to tie up the leases in court until a Dem president can simply ban the sale of the leases.

      Be prepared to see the Feds targeting Wyoming. They are defying the Feds the most. The latest….the Feds took Grizzlies off the endangered list so Wyoming planned to issue a limited hunt…a Fed judge ruled they couldn’t…so Wyoming passed legislation (On Governors desk to sign) to defy the judge and have the hunt anyway.

      Wyoming is also taking steps to allow gold and silver as currency in their State. They passed legislation to take over management of National parks if the Feds throw another hissy-fit again and shut down the government.

      Wyoming is my hero in telling an out-of-control central government to F_CK OFF!

            Colorado and Montana have both slid toward the blue shade as well, because of outsiders moving in. (CO is probably at the bottom of the slide.) Just part of the plan and they’re working on WY next.

            Oh, and for the few of you that might be Ayn Rand fans, Afton, WY is where the airport that John Galt flew into on his way to Atlantis is. I’ve been to Afton more than a few times – excellent mule deer and elk hunting around there – but have never run into Mr. Galt.

    Natural News Guy has issued an Alert about his Brighteon platform being under assault

    (Natural News) This is an emergency alert concerning Brighteon.com, the free speech video platform alternative to YouTube.

    I’m writing this at 12:45 am, March 21st. The Brighteon platform is now under extreme threat by upstream infrastructure providers over users posting footage of the New Zealand Christchurch shooting. We are being threatened to remove all the videos or face complete annihilation online, starting with being de-platformed from infrastructure providers, followed by legal action from none other than the nation of Australia (not even New Zealand itself, but Australia and it’s “Office of the eSafety Commissioner.”)

    We anticipated this exact scenario many months ago, and we have been feverishly building alternative internal infrastructure to eliminate any dependencies on upstream infrastructure providers, to the extent that such a configuration is possible. However, we are still several months away from completion of that build out phase. Sadly, over the next few hours we are being forced — essential “at gunpoint” (the irony being completely lost of the fascists who now control the ‘net) — to delete all videos containing footage of the New Zealand shooting.

    If we refuse to take this action, then ALL the videos on Brighteon will essentially be de-platformed, and none of them will be viewable by the public. The entire website will be annihilated.

    Make no mistake: We are facing extreme online fascism, censorship and authoritarian speech police who are exploiting the New Zealand operation to roll out a totalitarian police state across the ‘net. The excuse we are being given is that hosting or sharing the videos is “promoting violence” — an absurd claim on its face. If videos that depict violence are so harmful to the public, then why did the entire mainstream media play the 9/11 twin towers attack videos a million times over, burning the imagery into the minds of the American people? In that attack, over 3,500 Americans died, yet no one claimed that showing the video was promoting violence.

    If violent action sequences are “promoting violence,” then why isn’t every Hollywood action movie banned? Why aren’t the million other violent YouTube videos banned? Why is it perfectly acceptable to show video footage of Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich torturing and killing Jews in concentration camps? Have we really reached the point where videos that show Jews being mass murdered are perfectly okay, but videos that show followers of Islam being murdered are criminalized? I thought all genocide was evil, and burying it through censorship is not going to make the hatred go away. If we are to recognize the source of these conflicts and acts of violence, we must be willing to see what actually took place. But today, even viewing certain particular videos is now essentially considered a multi-national crime.

    Somehow, this New Zealand shooting video — in which rifle brass disappears mid-air, by the way, like magical ammo — is being invoked to justify the ultimate free speech crackdown across the ‘net. Anyone who dares examine the forensic video evidence, ask intelligent questions about the shooting or question the official narrative is now being threatened with internet-wide de-platforming and possible legal action.

    We have reached the state of “total censorship” on the ‘net. This is the beginning of the end of humanity, since no voices, views or opinions that contradict “official narratives” are going to be allowed anywhere online.

    As InfoWars also covered earlier today, the next escalation of censorship will involve banning URLs from browsers, meaning Chrome, FireFox, etc. will not even allow you type in “Brighteon.com” or “Infowars.com” or any other site the globalist controllers don’t want you to see. They will use another false flag shooting as justification to ban any URL they want, always in the name of “public safety.”

    In truth, globalists believe that anyone who thinks for themselves is a threat to public safety. Therefore, all non-conformists, dissenters, independent thinkers or outspoken voices of truth must be systematically silenced by all the tech giants, including: Google, Apple, Twitter, Amazon, YouTube, Snapchat, Pinterest and others. Together, they now operate a global cabal — an online mafia — that demands absolute obedience to irrational demands.

    Sadly, unless either the Trump administration or We the People rise up and overthrow these techno-fascist monstrosities, humanity is now enslaved under absolute online tyranny. No independent thought is allowed from this day forward.

    In terms of practical actions, we have been building an “underground” information hub for many months — a new solution that will make content available to human eyes but invisible to all search engines and computer algorithms. Sadly, human truth is going to have to move to “underground” status to evade de-platforming efforts by totalitarian fascists.

    I will record a strong video follow-up message in the coming days and post it on Brighteon, unless the internet tyrants annihilate it first. We are working hard to protect free speech, but the globalists are now holding loaded guns at our head and saying they will pull the trigger if we do not comply. For the moment, we are forced to comply in order to save all the other videos on the platform. However, in the long run, we have no intention whatsoever to comply with tyranny and authoritarianism.

      The fact is that Fox is really no better than any other network and everyone that was smart would turn them off so their income and ratings would go down. That’s the only way to send them a message that they will hear. I deplore that she was suspended, but I’m not surprised at all that she was nor that she is still of the air given that it’s still within the 2 week timeframe of the suspension.

      Don’t be surprised if they end up forcing her out or firing her at some point. Fox doesn’t want trouble from CAIR and are very susceptible to the threats that are being made. This is about the cowardice of the left who run Fox and nothing else.

Louis Susman, former U.S. ambassador to the U.K. and a lead bundler for Barack Obama’s 2008 White House run, has publicly acknowledged that he will be helping O’Rourke, the three-term former congressman from Texas. Susman told CNBC he’s been speaking with “family and friends” about backing him for president.

    Mark Gallogly, the co-founder of investment firm Centerbridge Partners and another Obama fundraiser, has been indicating to friends that he’s likely to support O’Rourke as well, CNBC reported Thursday. ( Obama isn’t backing him either.)

    In September 2, 2010, email exchange marked classified, longtime Clinton confidante Lanny Davis tells Secretary Clinton that he could serve as a private channel for her to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, saying he had a “private and highly trusted communication line, unofficial and personal, to PM N[etanyahu].” Davis goes on to say “[N]o one on the planet (other than your wonderful husband) can get this done as well as you.…\
    ” Secretary Clinton responds with classified information, saying “I will reach out to you directly and hope you will continue to do the same w me. The most important issue now is [Redacted B1].”

    In a September 18, 2010, email, Davis emails Clinton to tell her that “As soon as I wrote last email, I reverted to my old role as your crisis manager and worrier about you, read the word ‘optics’ I suddenly felt – oops. I am registered under FARA for one or more foreign governments or businesses. I don’t think it would look right. I want to avoid any even slight chance of misperception.” Clinton replies, “Thx for looking out for me, my friend. I’ll tell Cheryl to stand down.” Davis replied, “100% off-the-record.”
