Sanctuary Sanctimony

More “mean”, “heartless” “racism” from “white privilege” ahead…After all the Border is more secure than ever and complaining about illegal immigration is blatantly racist.

Justice: Another murder of an American by an illegal, another shrug from our nation’s leaders. A local police chief was right to see a “trail of blood” from the latest killing and those who made the killer’s spree possible.

This has been increasing of late, but the media is too busy snorting a Trump-high to care.

Speaking to Fox News’ Greta van Susteren, Santa Maria, Calif., police chief Ralph Martin denounced the rape, torture and murder of Marilyn Pharis in her bed by an undeported illegal alien with a long record of violent crime, saying, “I am not remiss to say that, from Washington, D.C., to Sacramento, there is a blood trail into the bedroom of Marilyn Pharis.”

Santa Barbara County authorities say a man in the country illegally has been charged in the rape and fatal assault of a 64-year-old woman at her home in Santa Maria.

Prosecutors say Marilyn Pharis was attacked with a hammer and sexually assaulted in her home on the morning of July 24. She later died of her injuries.

Twenty-nine-year-old Victor Aureliano Martinez was arrested shortly after the attack.

Martin pointed out that the “brutal and vicious attack” of the 64-year-old Air Force veteran in her home was the result of federal and state governments that work almost as a tag team. Each uses the other’s laws as reasons for refusing to act against criminal illegals, and both sides write off the inevitable crimes that result as just a case of a criminal “falling through the cracks.”

And if you try to do anything, you’ll be sued by the DOJ and dragged through the mud as “racists” like Gov. Brewer and the State of Arizona.

If the Feds want to ignore the problem, you can’t do anything about you racists!

As a result, hundreds of Americans are being killed by hardened criminals who should not be in this country, with no effort to halt them. If the broad-daylight killing of 32-year-old Kate Steinle as she strolled with her father on a tourist pier in San Francisco wasn’t sickening enough, the alleged rape, torture and murder by Victor Aureliano Martinez-Ramirez may be more horrific.

But the Left doesn’t care. It won’t even dent their sanctimony.

Martinez-Ramirez had been let out of jail just a few days earlier on a drug and violence offense, with no detainer issued by the Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. He’d been arrested six times for similar offenses in the last 15 months in Santa Maria alone, and an unknown number of times elsewhere.

Martinez was arrested July 16, but ICE opted not to lodge an immigration detainer, citing his lack of felony convictions or deportations.

All those previous convictions and arrests just vanished in a puff of ideological smoke!

In a statement, ICE spokeswoman Virginia Kice said that ICE “is monitoring the case closely” and that the agency has asked to be notified if Martinez is transferred or released.

He was no “looking for a better life” liberal sob story. He was and is a harden criminal. But yet the Left has an Agenda and an ideology and they will NOT deviate from it even at the cost of YOUR life.

Sadly, he was protected by Santa Maria’s sanctuary city laws, shielded by state laws blocking the Feds. Like others, he was eligible for free education and college tuition, could get a driver’s license and subsidized health care, and no matter what he did, his immigration status provided protection.

And then there’s $15/hr! 🙂

Combine it with the White House’s refusal to enforce immigration laws, even against violent criminals — some 30,000 have been released in the U.S. to prey on citizens — and it’s no surprise he concluded that he could do what he wanted with total impunity.

Just like the Iranians! 🙂

“We can all point fingers locally at each other,” said Martin. “ICE can point the finger at the sheriff, they can point it everywhere else, but the reality is it starts at the very top, and it’s not going to get fixed until it gets started at the very top and reached the local levels.”

That’s where the trail of blood leads, and it’s time to hold the White House accountable.

But the holiest of holy men, Barack, is a saint and cannot be impugned by you low, grubby little hate-filled tea-bagging cracker RACISTS! 🙂

This guy was obvious just a poor, oppressed migrant who just wanted a better life…

A life of drugs, crime and death.

He got it.

We got him.

And Marilyn got an early retirement bonus courtesy of The US Government.

And everyone on the Left is joyous about their sanctimony. And the Feds are willing to push their Agenda to very last drop of YOUR blood.

Now that’s Progressive.

2001: A Christian Odyssey

Yesterday was my 2000th blog post. So now we move on into the future. 🙂

Yes, it’s April 1st, but I don’t do April Fools jokes. Liberals make real life hard enough for everyone as it is who needs pranksters. They are just april FOOLS.

Like the Leftist who are so engrossed in destroying Christians in this country over “religious freedom” (in true Orwellian fashion that means to them restricting it) when a lot of them aren’t even religious to begin with and are more prone to side with Muslims (as they are politically correct) anyhow.

There’s this little story. You won’t get any sympathy or “compassion” from the Left on this one. They probably don’t know and don’t really care.

Full Disclosure: I was raised a Christian, but I am not actually a Christian today.

Relatives of the Coptic Christians who were murdered by ISIS in Libya last month are now facing violent attacks of their own—all for wanting to build a church to honor their loved ones.

FoxNews.com reports:

An angry mob in the Upper Egyptian village of Al Our – the proposed site of the church because it was home to 13 of the 21 Christians murdered in the mass “beachfront” decapitation – descended on the community’s current church after the midday Islamic prayer Friday and chanted that they’d never allow construction of the new place of worship to begin, witnesses told Egyptian activists in the U.S.

Things turned far uglier after nightfall, the witnesses said, as a smaller number of individuals threw Molotov cocktails and stones at the church, injuring several people, and setting cars ablaze, including one that belonged to a relative of one of the victims of the Libyan massacre.

“The police came, but after the attack,” said Mina Abdelmalak, a Coptic Christian living in Washington who is in close contact with the witnesses to the events in Al Our. “There were already cars on fire. People had been bloodied. Stones and bricks had been thrown.”

The Coptic Christians from Al Our first sought permission from Egypt’s president, Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, to build the church, which until recently has been a customary requirement for the religious minority in the country. No such permission is required to build mosques, however.

Even with al-Sisi’s consent, however, local Muslims objected, particularly over its location near the entrance to the village.

“This is a classic issue in Egypt,” Abdelmalak said, reports Fox. “Even after you struggle to get permission from the president to build a church, you still have to face the mob, which rejects the idea of having a church built in their neighborhood.”

A new location outside the village is now eyed following a meeting between Muslim and Coptic residents that the regional governor brokered.

“This has been effectively imposed on the Coptic residents,” Abdelmalak said. “Dictates to the Christian community are always presented as agreements.”

While police did arrest some members of the mob who participated in the attacks, they were released a few hours later.

Egypt currently ranks No. 21 on Open Doors’ annual list of the most dangerous places in the world to be a Christian.

2014 proved to be a particularly bad year for Christians, who were already the most persecuted religious group in the world.

“Even Christian-majority states are experiencing unprecedented levels of exclusion, discrimination and violence,” David Curry, president and CEO of Open Doors USA, said in a press release.“The 2015 World Watch List reveals that a staggering number of Christians are becoming victims of intolerance and violence because of their faith. They are being forced to be more secretive about their faith.”

But don’t worry, after all, in this country they are just your run of the mill KKK Bigots according to the Leftists who just need to put in their place. That’s no threat. 🙂

Inspiring Dreams

Harrison Solow, National Post · Monday, Nov. 15, 2010

Everywhere you turn today, our children are urged to “follow your dream.” It seems like a harmless, even inspiring bromide to motivate children to achievement.

It isn’t.A lot of damage is being done to young minds by how this rampant (and particularly nauseating) philosophy is interpreted. There seems to be an air of entitlement in it, which encourages people to expect rewards for simply having a dream and not working toward it with blood, sweat and tears.Somewhere along the line, responsibility has been discarded in favour of infantilism. Scream loud enough from the cradle or the American Idol stage and mama/nanny/Simon Cowell will come running. And when in the latter case, this does not happen, many people are bewildered and angry.Wanting something, they have been told, is the only requirement needed to get it. This is, of course, absolute nonsense.The simple fact is that people who achieve excellence in their fields didn’t just have a dream. They got up at 4:00 a.m. to practice on parallel bars or had to forego other desirable activities and paths in order to get in six hours of violin practice a day, or stayed off the several million absurd writing advice blogs with their overheated little cliques that dispense useless regurgitated maxims and empty praise and decide to actually confront their thoughts on a page. Or they read Beowulf and Dante carefully and deeply when they didn’t see any point, since all they were interested in was Sylvia Plath, because someone of more experience and wisdom told them to do so. I don’t know whether we’re overly lazy, stupid, or childish these days. But the idea of preparing oneself for excellence has somehow disappeared.Case in point: I was Writer in Residence and an English professor at a British university some years ago. In my second year there, when one of my students actually lifted, word for word, two pages off a website and handed it in as his own work, I ended up being the one reprimanded!I had given him a zero for the paper, of course. But the policy then was that I wasn’t allowed to give him a zero. Instead, the entire English faculty met to go over his paper and give him credit for all the things he didn’t plagiarize. This, to me, is akin to a criminal breaking into your house and stealing your jewelry, silver and art, and when appearing in court for indictment after pleading guilty, being given credit by the judge for not stealing your television or computer.I was both disillusioned and livid at this so, contrary to university policy at that time, I called “Trevor” into my office and asked him why he had done this despicable thing. He responded that he had always had a dream to have a degree. ( “Have” not “earn”!) I said to him, “Trevor, you will never have a degree if you keep on doing this. Oh — someone may hand one to you one day, but you will always know that it isn’t yours. It will never be yours. It will always belong to all those from whom you stole it. Never you.” And he started to cry. I was glad to see those tears, which were, in the end, the only entity in the university acknowledging responsibility for such an unworthy act.My friend James Strauss, a talented novelist and writer for the television show, House, among other things, found a similar situation in his recent (and brief ) foray into teaching.”Our public almost never understands what it takes to put a production on, or the vital necessity of good writing,” he wrote to me. “Everybody thinks they can ‘at least’ write. I taught a screenwriting class last year and was amazed that almost all my students thought they had a screenplay in them. I assigned them a one-hour, fifty-page, screenplay by next week’s class. I said I’d do the same. The following week we met (only 11 of the 16 showed) and there was one screenplay written. Mine. Not one page of any other work was available, although the excuses were endless and complex.”This is worrying. Even our universities are filled with people who have dreams but no plans; desires but no talent; talent but no work ethic, and because the few people who could make a difference in their lives will not step up to the plate and say “You can’t have this until you earn it,” I am concerned that there is no end in sight.So — my advice to dreamers: Don’t just follow your dream. Do what it takes to earn it. To achieve it. To be worthy of it. Because if you don’t, it will never, ever, really be yours.

But don’t worry, you have the government and “compassionate” people like Rev Al Sharpton to guide you along the path of victimization where you can be taught that it’s not your fault, it’s cracker’s fault, or Corporations, Corporate America, “The Rich”, the Jews, anyone BUT YOU. They are all conspiring to hoard you out of your dreams and if you just follow these “wise men” blindly they and they alone will lead you to the Promised Land!!

Not having to work, being paid to sit on your ass, and being a victim all at the same time.

Liberal Nirvana!

It’s not your Fault! It’s “THEM!!!”

THEY are Evil. THEY ARE CORRUPT.

It’s Not your Fault!

Get the Point.
