 THE WOODLANDS, Texas — The governor of Texas has 
signed into law a bill that prevents the government from subpoenaing 
copies of sermons or questioning pastors about the content of their 
“Texas law now will be your strength and your sword and your shield,” Gov. Greg Abbott declared during a ceremony at Grace Church of the Woodlands. “You will be shielded by any effort by any other government official in any other part of the state of Texas from having subpoenas to try to pry into what you’re doing here in your churches.”
Senate Bill 24 was birthed following the 2014 controversy surrounding Houston Mayor Annise Parker, who had requested copies of sermons and other material from several area pastors as part of the discovery phase of a lawsuit over a petition seeking to repeal the city’s “bathroom bill.”
As previously reported, attorneys for Parker, an open lesbian, asked for “all speeches, presentations, or sermons related to [the bathroom bill], the petition, Mayor Annise Parker, homosexuality, or gender identity…”

A motion was soon filed in turn to stop the city from scrutinizing the speech of area pastors, which caused Parker’s attorneys to alter their demands.
The clergy members who were the subject of the city’s discovery requests then sued Parker for “trampl[ing] on the rights of one million Houston citizens” through the subpoena requests.
Uproar over the matter spurred lawmakers to present legislation that would prevent such situations in the future.

“A governmental unit may not, in any civil action or other civil or administrative proceeding to which the governmental unit is a party, compel the production or disclosure of a written copy or audio or video recording of a sermon delivered by a religious leader during religious worship of a religious organization or compel the religious leader to testify regarding the sermon,” read Senate Bill 24, presented by Sen. Joan Huffman, R-Houston.
While the bill was signed into law at the governor’s mansion on Friday, a special ceremony was also held at Grace Church on Sunday, with Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick also attending.
“We got in a situation we had never been in, didn’t want to be in,” Steve Riggle, the senior pastor, told the Houston Chronicle. “We got our sermons subpoenaed—which is a difficult position, because you’d sure like the mayor to read the sermons and to listen to them—but at the same time, we weren’t about to give them over because of a document that was given to us in subpoena form. We felt like that was wrong, so we said no.”
Patrick told those gathered that the bill didn’t arise from a Democratic or Republican issue, but “a right to keep men out of ladies’ rooms and to not allow boys and girls to shower together in the 10th grade.”
He further elaborated that the nation is “not split between Republicans and Democrats, but it’s split between those who believe in our Savior Jesus Christ and those who are lost like I was once and all of us were.”
A few residents protested Abbott and Patrick’s appearance at the church, claiming it violated the “separation of Church and State.”


Democrat Shill Brennan, Pushes WH Regime Change

The establishment has not slowed down with the “impeach Trump” rhetoric.

 Former CIA Director John Brennan testified to a House committee recently, continuing his innuendo, but never rising to allegations.

David Knight looks at the man who has become the first to openly use the intelligence community for political purposes.

"It is to be understood the actual “patriotic” worth of the CIA’s actions depend upon who sits at the helm (Obama) and the director of the CIA always is a reflection of the POTUS. Hence we have John Brennan who you should recall refused to release 28 pages of the 911 Report because HE claimed it contained inaccurate information”. Well, couldn’t they release the pages and mark what the CIA claimed was inaccurate?
Who is John O. Brennan? Most certainly a globalist, supporter of the Obama agenda and a man who has worked for the CIA in enough positions for the past 25 years to write a book. Brennan withdrew his name from consideration for Director of the CIA in the first Obama administration over concerns about his support for transferring terror suspects to countries where they may be tortured while serving under President George W. Bush. Instead, Obama appointed Brennan Deputy National Security Advisor for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism AND Assistant to the President, a new position which did not require Senate confirmation.
Placing Brennan in the position of Dir. of the CIA, has put one of Obama’s closet and most powerful aides in charge of an agency that has been transformed by more than a decade of secret wars. Working for Obama Brennan has:
Overseen the escalation of drone strikes in Pakistan in 2010.
Was the principal architect of the administration’s secret counter terrorism operations in Yemen.
Became a prominent public spokesman for the administration, appearing on television after foiled terrorist plots and giving speeches about the legality and morality of targeted killing.
Brennan denied his use of brutal interrogation methods and ended up with the prize job for Obama.
After Brennan was sworn into his office not on a Bible but on a copy of the Constitution rumors came out he had converted to Muslim while stationed in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Liberal leaning Snopes claims the rumor is not true. (This would explain his very close relationship with Obama).
The Beauty of Islam according to John Brennan of which is what Obama learned as a child in Jakarta.
Spoke forcefully for closing the prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, and colleagues say he has argued for greater openness and clearer rules for targeted killing.
His reporting of the supposed raid to kill Osama bin Laden was proved to be inaccurate.
After leaving government service in 2005, Brennan became CEO of The Analysis Corporation, a security consulting business, and served as chairman of the Intelligence and National Security Alliance, an association of intelligence professionals."

One would think that the Muslim migrant chaos and crime were enough for Germany, but still the leftist-jihadist alliance is tightening its stranglehold on the country, a country with debt in the tens of billions due to this migrant chaos.
The problems that many critics point out are the vague definitions of the term “hate speech” and the restrictions that the proposed law may have on freedom of speech
Leftists and Islamic supremacists have been at the center of the push for “hate speech” laws; they have been relentlessly attacking the freedom of speech, with the help of the aggressive socialist leftist lobbies. Criticizing Islam is defined by Leftists and Islamic supremacists as “hate speech” and “Islamophobia.”
The Social Democrats’ coalition partners, including Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union, argue that the law will result in censorship of legitimate speech.
And indeed, Germany began a crackdown on the freedom of speech nearly two years ago, so as not to offend Muslim migrants.
Other nations in Europe seem to be headed in the same direction as Germany, unless these authoritarian politicians are booted out at election time. This doesn’t look like an encouraging prospect after France’s elections.

Germany Considers Million Dollar Hate Speech Fines, by Jacob Bojesson, Daily Caller, May 19, 2017:
The German parliament is debating a proposal to force social media platforms to either delete hate speech quickly or risk hefty fines.
The problems that many critics point out are the vague definitions of the term “hate speech” and the restrictions that the proposed law may have on freedom of speech. Justice Minister Heiko Maas disagrees, arguing it will only help protect freedom of speech in Germany.
“The point of the proposed legislation is that statements that violate the law must be deleted,” Maas, a Social Democrat, said Friday, according to Deutsche Welle. “These are not examples of freedom of speech. They’re attacks on freedom of speech. The worst danger to freedom of speech is a situation where threats go unpunished.”
Flagrant violations need to be removed within 24 hours while more complex cases have to be removed within one week, according to the proposal. Failure to remove posts may result in fines of up to 50 million euros ($56 million dollars).
“Practice shows that not too much, but too little, gets deleted,” Maas said. “We’re at a crossroads. Should the digital revolution be allowed to continue to call our state, based on law and order, into question?”
The Social Democrats’ coalition partners, including Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union, argue that the law will result in censorship of legitimate speech.
“I cannot understand how Facebook, for example, is qualified to check whether content is illegal,”….

 Activist Pamela Geller comments on legislation which would ban 
major aspects of Islamic religious code
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
In a stunning victory in the war against radical Islam, state legislators in the Lone Star State passed a version of the much debated “American Law for American Courts” (ALAC) bill, banning Muslim Sharia law within Texas.
Sharia is the Islamic religious code governing all aspects life. It mandates death for nonbelievers, death for adulterers, death for homosexuals, crucifixion for highway robbers, amputation for petty theft, and more.
Muslim “honor killings” of women and young girls — also a Sharia practice — are occurring regularly in Texas. Read here, and here.

Both houses of the Texas legislature voted in favor of HB 45, the Texas Foreign Law Procedural Protection Act Monday, May 22, and the bill now heads to the governor’s desk for signature.
Infowars reached out to Pamela Geller of the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) for her thoughts on these new developments in Texas.
“The intention is to stop the aspects of Sharia that contradict American law from being applied here. This law should accomplish that,” Geller told Infowars.
“But, the court system is full of Leftist activist judges who disregard the law and run roughshod over the will of the people in the service of a globalist, socialist, internationalist agenda,” she said cautioning that the fight is not over.
Echoing the FBI and other law enforcement authorities, Geller suggested Texas also “require the mosques to institute programs teaching young Muslims to reject the al-Qaeda/ISIS view of Islam.”
“The mosques must be monitored,” Geller added.
Mirroring her comments on the gruesome Manchester attack, Geller pointed out that Sharia is observed not only during terrorist attacks, but also in the silence of countries hosting the Muslims who commit these atrocities.
“Sharia is always enforced after every jihad attack, as the mainstream media (or the enemedia, as I call it) whitewashes the jihadi motivations and connections of the perpetrator, and tries to portray him as a lone wolf. Texas is absolutely doing the right thing, but much more needs to be done,” Geller remarked.
Women are the main victims of Sharia’s harsh punishments, and allowing Sharia to coexist alongside Texas law (or any law) is not compassionate, Geller contends.
“It isn’t compassionate to women who are thereby subjected to Sharia’s discriminatory regulations regarding wife-beating, polygamy, divorce, inheritance, and testimony,” Geller stated.
Geller is not wrong. The Quran says:
4:34 . . . If you fear highhandedness from your wives, remind them [of the teaching of God], then ignore them when you go to bed, then hit them. If they obey you, you have no right to act against them. God is most high and great. (MAS Abdel Haleem, the Qur’an, Oxford UP, 2004)
The Hadith (the other Muslim holy book for which there are many versions) depicts Muhammad hitting his underage child bride, Aisha:
‘He [Muhammad] struck me [Aisha] on the chest which caused me pain.’
The UK is one of the first western European countries to openly allow Sharia “courts” to operate alongside British courts, and the consequences are alarming.
Shaykh Suhaib Hasan, the chief justice of London’s Sharia “court” made this chilling remark:
“If sharia law is implemented, then you can turn this country into a haven of peace because once a thief’s hand is cut off nobody is going to steal. Once, just only once, if an adulterer is stoned nobody is going to commit this crime at all. We want to offer it to the British society.”
ALAC In Texas: An Uphill Fight
Muslim activists vocally opposed ALAC legislation in the last two sessions, culminating in a giant protest on the steps of the state capitol building, where representatives from the terrorist-linked Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) declared they were “above” U.S. law.
“If we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land,” said Mustafa Carroll, executive director of the Dallas-Fort Worth CAIR branch, at the Austin protest.
Protest organizers cited “the recent House and Senate bill proposals involving the implementation of ‘anti-Sharia’ legislation, where the First Amendment rights and freedoms of Muslims would ultimately be hindered.”
CAIR has a call to action on its website urging people to oppose HB 45 (ALAC).
Carroll’s statements are similar to comments allegedly made by CAIR co-founder and former chairman Omar M. Ahmad:
“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant” and the Quran “should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”
The protesters admitted the purpose of their efforts was to defend Sharia. “We tried to downplay Sharia, because we didn’t want to give the other side any excitement for being here,” Carroll said.
The same CAIR operative is on record defending Hamas, still classified by the U.S. as a terrorist group.
“I think you can only blame Hamas for so long. It takes two to tango. And I think, you know, that what we’ve heard for a number of years is this terrorist, terrorist, terrorist, terrorist, Hamas, Hamas, Hamas, was not just Hamas,” Carroll said.
Rev. Ronnie C. Lister, a Nation of Islam radical, also spoke at Muslim Capitol Day:
“This country belongs to you. This state house is your state house. The police department is your police department,” he told the crowd. “This land is your land. … God is on your side … this is your house. [It] does not belong to the Republicans. It does not belong to the Democrats. It does not belong to just Americans. It belongs to all of us!
Quick History Of CAIR
CAIR denied Osama Bin Laden was behind 9/11, even though bin Laden acknowledged his role on camera.
CAIR demanded removal of a billboard in Los Angeles that described bin Laden as “the sworn enemy,” saying that the description was “offensive to Muslims.”
CAIR called the conviction of the 1993 World Trade Center bombers “a travesty of justice.”
CAIR board member Siraj Wahhaj — who President Barack Obama invited to give the “invocation” at the DNC — is an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Wihhaj once remarked, “It is my duty and our duty as Muslims to replace the U.S. Constitution with the Quran.”
CAIR boasts at least seven board members or staff who were arrested, denied entry to the US, or indicted/pled guilty to terrorist charges: Siraj Wahhaj, Bassem Khafagi, Randall (“Ismail”) Royer, Ghassan Elashi, Rabih Haddad, Muthanna Al-Hanooti, and Nabil Sadoun.

 Manchester Bomber's Father and Brothers Arrested 
And Linked To ISIS
 Libya arrests father, brother of alleged 
Manchester bomber 
 Published on May 24, 2017
Libya arrests father, brother of alleged Manchester bomber. Authorities in Tripoli detain the father and younger brother of Salem Abedi, who carried out a suicide attack in the UK, killing at least 22 people.
 Father, Ramadan Abedi, says:  
'I didn't expect that to happen'
 Published on May 24, 2017
Ramadan Abedi, the father of Salman who is accused of killing 22 concert-goers at Manchester Arena, told Reuters in Libya that 'everything was normal' when he last spoke to his son. Ramadan was detained by Tripoli counter terrrorism force during the interview.
 Manchester jihad mass murderer’s father and brothers arrested, linked to the Islamic State and al-Qaeda

Jihad: the family business.
Remember: “Salman and his brother Ismail worshipped at Didsbury mosque, where their father, who is known as Abu Ismail within the community, is a well-known figure. ‘He used to do the five and call the adhan. He has an absolutely beautiful voice. And his boys learned the Qur’an by heart.'”
His father, who has ties to al-Qaeda and the Islamic State, is a well-known figure at the Didsbury Mosque. Why didn’t the Vast Majority of Peaceful Muslims there rebuke him and his sons for their jihadist leanings?

“Manchester bomber Salman Abedi’s father and brothers arrested, linked to ISIS, Al Qaeda,” Fox News, May 24, 2017 (thanks to the Geller Report):
Manchester bomber Salman Abedi apparently wasn’t the only member of his family to harbor extremist views as Libyan officials arrested the suicide bomber’s father and two brothers, and uncovered what investigators called a plot for a new attack.
Hashim Abedi, who was born in 1997, was arrested in Tripoli on Wednesday evening by the Libyan counter-terrorism force Rada on suspicion of links to the Islamic State, and was planning a new attack on the Libyan capital, a government spokesman told Reuters on Wednesday.
The father of the bomber was arrested in Tripoli on Wednesday, a Libyan security spokesman told The Associated Press. The father, Ramadan Abedi, had said another brother of the bomber, Ismail, was arrested Tuesday.
Salman’s mother, Samia Tabbal, is belived to have returned to Libya, while the Facebook profile for his sister, Jomana, suggests that she still lives in Manchester. The mother was described in an article by the Guardian as a “very nice woman” who taught a friend’s daughter to read the Quran.
Earlier Abdel-Basit Haroun, a former security official in Libya, told The Associated Press Wednesday that he personally knew Ramadan Abedi, the father of Salman Abedi, and that the elder Abedi was a member of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group in the 1990s. The group had links to Al Qaeda.
Although the LIFG disbanded, Haroun said the father belongs to the Salafi Jihadi movement, the most extreme sect of Salafism and from which Al Qaeda and the Islamic State group hail. Haroun added that Abedi, also known as Abu Ismail, had returned to the Libyan capital of Tripoli.
The LIFG was founded in 1995, and was involved in attempts to assassinate then-Libyan leader Moammar Qaddafi as well as violent clashes with Benghazi police. In 2002, a senior LIFG commander, Anas al-Libi, who also was a companion of Al Qaeda founder Usama bin Laden, was detained by U.S. forces for his role in the 1998 bombings of the American Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, which killed more than 200 people.
The group also was involved in the bloody riots at Abu Salim prison near Benghazi in 1996 that killed more than 1,200 prisoners.
The LIFG reportedly teamed up with the Moroccan Islamic Combatant Group in planning the May 2003 bombings in Casablanca, Morocco, that killed more than 40 people and injured more than 100. The group also has been linked to the 2004 attacks in Madrid that killed 194 people.
Ramadan Abedi escaped Tripoli in 1993 after Qaddafi’s security authorities issued an arrest warrant and eventually sought political asylum in Britain. The elder Abedi first immigrated to London before settling in the Whalley Range area of south Manchester, where they had lived for at least a decade.
We don’t believe in killing innocents. This is not us.
– Ramadan Abedi, the father of Manchester bombing suspect Salman Abedi
The neighborhood is known to be home to a number of former LIFG members living in exile, including Abd al-Baset Azzouz – an expert bomb-maker who left Manchester to run a terrorist network in eastern Libya overseen by Ayman al-Zawahiri, Usama bin Laden’s successor as leader of Al Qaeda. Media in the United Kingdom reported in 2014 that Azzouz had 200 to 300 militants under his control.
In a telephone interview from Tripoli, Ramadan Abedi — who is now the administrative manager of the Central Security force in the Libyan capital — denied to The Associated Press that his son is linked to any militant group or the suicide bombing that killed 22 people.
The father of the alleged terrorist said that his family “aren’t the ones who blow up ourselves among innocents.”
“We don’t believe in killing innocents. This is not us,” he said….
Sure. But are non-Muslims innocent?

Revealed: How the Manchester bomber was a dope-smoking and vodka-drinking party boy nicknamed Dumbo who said he had anger issues
  • Bomber Salman Abedi described by school friends as being prone to lashing out
  • He confessed to ‘anger-management issues’ after he punched a girl in the face
  • Started going off the rails when his father moved back to Libya to join the rebels
  • Family’s connections included Abd al-Baset Azzouz, a master bomb-maker
Bomber Salman Abedi was teased at school and nicknamed Dumbo for his big ears

Abedi's younger brother Hashem (pictured) has also reportedly been arrested in Tripoli, Libya, on suspicion of having links to the ISIS, that claimed responsibility for the atrocity 
Hashem (pictured after his arrest in Libya this evening) was 'aware of all the details' of his plans, Libyan security forces said

Pop megastar Katy Perry made an impassioned plea for people to “co-exist” and said that “barriers” or “borders” could detract from that goal….Perry, said….“we’re just all loving on each other and we should just stay loving on each other….
Katy Perry has far more influence over young people than hard-working counter-jihadists do. She, like many other pop stars, wants everybody to love each other and get along. Most Westerners want the same things. But Islamic supremacists and jihadists don’t. They want a global caliphate and will use any means at their disposal to do it, including stealthily undermining us by means of the “Islamophobia” subterfuge.
Most pop stars cannot actually relate to the dangers and carnage of jihad attacks, notwithstanding their emotional outpourings after such attacks. They are surrounded by guards and live in near-fortresses, like Perry’s 19 million dollar gated mansion in Beverly Hills. She is unlikely ever to know the fear of a jihadi attack or experience the pain of what the innocent girls suffered in Manchester Monday night. She would accordingly do well not to speak of this massacre as if it were a two-sided coin. Only one side does not want to coexist in love.

“Katy Perry on Manchester Bombing: ‘No Barriers, No Borders, We All Just Need to Co-Exist’”, by Jerome Hudson, Breitbart, May 23, 2017:
Pop megastar Katy Perry made an impassioned plea for people to “co-exist” and said that “barriers” or “borders” could detract from that goal in an interview following the terrorist bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, U.K. on Monday night that claimed the lives of at least 22 people and injured dozens of others.
In an interview Tuesday on Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, the “Chained to the Rhythm” singer suggested that people “unite” following the tragedy, which occurred as young fans and their parents were leaving the 21,000-seat arena at around 10:35 p.m. local time.
A suspected suicide bomber, identified as Salman Abedi, detonated what is believed to be a nail bomb as concert-goers were exiting the Manchester Arena. The attack took the lives of at least 22 people, many of them children, and wounded at least 59 more.
Grande has reportedly suspended her tour, tweeting late Monday that the bombing has left her “broken.”
from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don’t have words.
— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) May 23, 2017
Perry, for her part, said Tuesday that “we’re just all loving on each other and we should just stay loving on each other.”
“If this gets out to anyone, I just want to say that I love all of you out there and I just know that some of our fan bases kind of go both ways. Ari’s fans are my fans, and my fans are Ari’s fans.” Perry added. “Tell everyone, ‘I love you’ today.”
Perry’s preference for no “borders” or “barriers” may come from her staunch opposition to President Donald Trump, who promised during the 2016 campaign to build a security wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. The singer was a vocal supporter of former Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton, and previously marched in the anti-Trump Women’s March on Washington shortly after Trump’s inauguration….

As part of President Trump’s visit to the Vatican, Pope Francis gave the President his encyclical on climate change. Trump politely said “I’ll read it.” Don’t bother. David Knight breaks down the people and the agenda behind it — depopulation, junk science, feudalism masked as socialism, all wrapped in pagan religion.

Pope Plays Nice During Trump's Vatican Visit 



republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
Major media touts a vast chasm between ideologies of the leader of the free world and the leader of the Catholic world. But in President Donald Trump's first meeting with Pope Francis at the Vatican on Wednesday, both leaders tempered their differences with rhetoric worthy of subtle UN diplomats. The pontiff wanted to talk about climate change; the president wanted to discuss combating terrorism. In the end, they settled on ambiguous "fundamental values" to "promote human rights, combat human suffering, and protect religious freedom," as relayed in a White House press release immediately following the half-hour private audience. Trump did appear to score a few Francis points with his pledge of $300 million of U.S. taxpayer dollars for "anti-famine" foreign aid in countries such as Yemen, South Sudan, Somalia and Nigeria.
Overall, the pope seemed reserved. He returned Trump's effusive greeting and friendly "It's an honor to meet you" with uncharacteristic detachment and a rather awkward welcome, prompting one reporter to comment that this somber Francis did not "exude his usual warmth and cheerfulness," and another to remark that the pontiff looked "for all the world like he'd rather be literally anywhere else but in that room with that man." Though the Holy See press office described discussions between Trump and the Holy Father as "cordial," Pope Francis certainly reserved his toothiest grins for First Lady Melania Trump, who wore a black lace mantilla and long-sleeved black dress, the traditional garb for women in private audience with the pontiff.

Perhaps Francis' conduct was influenced by the memory of his comments questioning Trump's Christianity during the presidential campaign, when he said (from inside the Vatican walls) that anyone who wants to build walls rather than bridges is "not Christian," referencing Trump's proposal to combat illegal immigration with a wall along the Mexican border. Then-candidate Trump, a Presbyterian, countered Francis' attack as "disgraceful." After the election, Francis compared Trump's victory to the rise of Nazism in Germany. The two men also disagree on proper ways to address the environment, poverty, and international relations.
However, a gentler manner accompanied the pope's face-to-face comments Wednesday as he addressed his pet issues of climate change and world peace, though Secretary of State Rex Tillerson later told reporters that "immigration itself did not come up." He said that instead, Francis presented Trump with a copy of his influential and controversial encyclical on the environment, which argues that humans are destroying the earth, and calls radical environmentalism a moral imperative. Vatican Secretary of State Pietro Parolin also urged Trump to maintain U.S. commitment to the Paris climate agreement, despite his campaign promise to pull out of that UN treaty. Tillerson said the president intends to make a final decision upon his return home after this nine day, multi-nation tour.
Francis also gave Trump copies of his encyclicals Evangelii Gaudium and Amoris Laetitia. The former denounces market-based capitalism, and the latter has caused consternation among Catholic Church officials and laity due to what critics call dangerous ambiguities on hot-button topics of divorce and homosexuality.
The president's gifts to Pope Francis were more tailored to the pontiff's tastes: five custom-bound books written by Martin Luther King, Jr., whom the pope praised on his visit to the United States in 2015. Trump also gave a piece of granite from the MLK memorial in Washington, D.C., and a bronze sculpture that the White House said represents "hope for a peaceful tomorrow." When Francis presented Trump with a large medallion of an olive branch and said, "I give this to you so that you can be an instrument of peace," Trump replied, "We can use peace."
Neither the White House nor the Vatican has issued statements detailing the private conversation between Francis and Trump, but both press offices expressed satisfaction "for the good existing bilateral relations between the Holy See and the United States of America." When the president left, he told the pope, "Thank you. I won't forget what you said." Afterwards, Trump wrote on Twitter: "Honor of a lifetime to meet His Holiness Pope Francis. I leave the Vatican more determined than ever to pursue PEACE in our world."
Does this mean that Trump has had a conversion to the socialistic aims Pope Francis seems to embrace? Probably not. Michele Dunne of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Washington told Catholic News Service that "while they are likely to differ again in the future, today's meeting poured balm on a wounded relationship."

The Egyptian president, al-Sisi, gave President Trump the ultimate compliment yesterday.   He said, “Mr. President, let me express our appreciation and respect. Let me say you have a unique personality that is capable of doing the impossible.” (Can you imagine the angst our American Socialist media is feeling?!)
In watching all the speeches and pomp and ceremony, I was very proud of our President, and proud for America.  For the first time in decades, I’m seeing foreign dignitaries respect America’s leader, and truly like him.  Maybe it’s just politics, but I don’t think so.  Despite all the hatred spewed by our media, the democrats and the neo-cons, this President can and will accomplish great things.
It is suffocating living in America where freedom of speech is oppressed in the name of hatred for our President because he won the election. The disrespect and sedition fomented by the media, by Hollywood, by commentators is a sign of the disintegration of decency in our culture. Is it even possible to get back to the basics of civility with each other? The societal decay is sadly so very evident, that I highly doubt it.  I’ve even experienced this lack of civility from a Hillary supporting neighbor we’ve been friends with for 30 years.
Egypt and Saudi Arabia
It refreshing to see the president away from home, where he is treated well. Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi led the way in confronting Islamic terrorism.  He exiled the Muslim Brotherhood and formed a coalition of Arab nations to confront the extremist elements promoting violence.  King Abdullah III of Jordan joined in 2014; and that eventually led to Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States uniting and forming an anti-extremism Arab coalition.

In 2015, King Salman of Saudi Arabia took up the cause for peace, and this has resulted in the Arab Islamic American Summit.
On Saturday, the 20th of May, Saudi Arabia’s King Salman placed the King Abdulaziz al Saud Collar around President Trump’s neck during a ceremony in the country’s capital. The gold medallion is considered the kingdom’s highest civilian honor.
 Trump received the medal during a ceremony at the Royal Court in Riyadh shortly after he arrived in Saudi Arabia for his first foreign trip as president.
Here is the full transcript of his speech where he lashes out at Iran, and says its own citizens are victims of its policies and that terror groups ISIS, Al-Qaida, Hezbollah and Hamas are responsible for generations of vanished dreams. He is right, my first son-in-law came out of Iran when the Shah was still in power, and they loved him and being westernized.  When his parents visited America, after the Shah had died, if I mentioned Khomeni’s name, they’d immediately say, “Morte, Morte,” meaning “death.”  They hated him.
The President didn’t mince words when he spoke about eliminating Islamic terrorism and murderous acts against Jews and Christians.
There is still much work to be done. That means honestly confronting the crisis of Islamic extremism and the Islamists and Islamic terror of all kinds. We must stop what they’re doing to inspire, because they do nothing to inspire but kill. Religious leaders must make this absolutely clear. Barbarism will deliver you no glory. Piety to evil will bring you no dignity. If you choose the path of terror, your life will be empty, your life will be brief, and your soul will be fully condemned. And political leaders must speak out to affirm the same idea. Heroes don’t kill innocents. They save them.
This is a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life, and decent people of all religions who seek to protect it.
This is a battle between Good and Evil.
Unfortunately, Saudi Arabia may well obtain a massive weapons arsenal and missile defense system in a $110 billion deal pushed by H.R. McMaster, Gary Cohn, and Dina Habib Powell. Under this arrangement, the Saudis will obtain technology to build civilian nuclear reactors.  President Trump has expressed strong skepticism of this deal.
The Grace of our First Lady Wins Israeli Fans

The very lovely and thoughtful first lady won many fans with her kindness to Nechama Rivlin, President Rivlin’s wife.
Here is the story from my dear friend in Israel:
The most memorable moment from this trip, to me, was that moment at the entrance to the house of President Rivlin.
Nechama Rivlin, President Rivlin’s wife, welcomed the First Lady Melania Trump at the door. As they were about to walk inside, Nechama whispered to Melania that she will do her best to catch up with the walking pace, but she might be a bit slower because of her medical condition which requires her to use an oxygen tank. Melania took her hand, looked at her and said, “We’ll walk at any pace you choose.” And so, they walked, slowly, gracefully and proudly, hand in hand.
That is the moment I choose to cherish. That silent gesture has neither any political significance nor any colorful tone to it, but it is everything.
It is the hope we yearn for when we speak of peace;
It is the kindness we wish to protect when we speak of defeating terror;
It is the dignity we want to teach when we speak of stopping hate;
It is the friendship we pray for when we speak of our unbreakable bond;
In other words, this gesture encompasses everything that is good, kind and human.
The Trumps and Netanyahus
It is quite obvious these two leaders and their wives are very affectionate friends.  Benjamin Netanyahu is a totally different man than he was with Barack Hussein Obama.
I don’t remember which trip it was that Netanyahu made to the Obama White House, but I do remember that Obama was rude, offensive, antagonistic and proper protocol, which we rarely saw from Hussein, was totally defunct.  The former President even made Netanyahu use the rear entrance to the White House…such poor taste was evident with an ally we desperately need in the Middle East. I was appalled and embarrassed and angry at what was done to our ally.
Remember when Netanyahu came to the United States and addressed the joint session of Congress on the danger of the American-Iran deal? That infuriated Obama. He tried to get that speech cancelled but he couldn’t because the Speaker of the House is who extends such invitations.  I loved that speech, it was phenomenal and I’m sure General Flynn can validate Netanyahu’s worries.
Limbaugh reminded us of another horrible slight by Obama to Prime Minister Netanyahu.  He told this story:
Obama and Netanyahu and their various aides were working on something, and abruptly Obama got up and said to Netanyahu, “I’m leaving. I have to go have dinner with my family. You stay here. You keep working on this, and I’ll come back afterwards and see where you are.” The White House was very proud of that. They made sure that news got out. Disrespecting the prime minister of Israel? That was a big plus for Obama with his buddies around the world and his lunatic Democrat base.
Obama may have felt big when he did this, but he made America small.  Now we have a President who we can once again be proud of as he travels the globe and represents the United States and her people.
President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivered remarks to the media prior to dinner together at the residence of Benjamin and Sara Netanyahu.
The protocol was one of ease and great friendship, and this is historic for our country as is the fact that our president was the first to make a trip to the Western wall, one of the holiest sites in Judaism.
Netanyahu said he would go with President Trump to the wall, but our President said he did not want it to be a media event, he wished to pay respects alone.
Our President also visited the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. This was a great day for these two countries who are such great allies.
President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu delivered remarks to the media prior to dinner together at the residence of Benjamin and Sara Netanyahu.  The Prime Minister’s comments were very interesting.
We want you to know how much we appreciate the change in American policy on Iran which you enunciated so clearly, just an hour ago.  I want you to know how much we appreciate your bold decision to act against the use of chemical weapons in Syria, and I want to tell you how much we appreciate the reassertion of American leadership in the Middle East….I look forward to working closely with you to confront the dangers we face together in this violent and volatile Middle East.
I believe that together we can roll back Iran’s march of aggression and terror in this region and we can thwart Iran’s unbridled ambition to become a nuclear weapon state.  I also look forward to working closely with you to advance peace in our region because you have noted so succinctly that common dangers and turning former enemies into partners, and that’s where we see something new and potentially something very promising. 
It won’t be simple, but for the first time in many years, and Mr. President, for the first time in my lifetime, I see a real hope for change, (not the change of former President Obama). The Arab leaders who you met yesterday could help change the atmosphere and they could help create the conditions for a realistic peace.  These are all great signs on your historic visit.  It’s a visit that I think has echoed down the ages because the great Abraham Lincoln is reported to have said that there was no city on earth that he so much desired to see as Jerusalem. Well, Mr. President, Donald, there’s no city on earth where you are more welcome than right here with us in Jerusalem.  Welcome to Jerusalem!  Welcome to Israel!
Our President and First Lady at Yad Vashem
Yad Vashem is Israel’s official memorial to the victims of the Holocaust. Established in 1953, Yad Vashem is on the western slope of Mount Herzl, also known as the Mount of Remembrance.
It is dedicated to preserving the memory of the dead; honoring Jews who fought against their Nazi oppressors and Gentiles who selflessly aided Jews in need; and researching the phenomenon of the Holocaust in particular and genocide in general, with the aim of avoiding such events in the future.
The American media has called our President incompetent, incapable, reckless and so dangerous and stupid and uninformed and ill-prepared that he could undo all of the great accomplishments of every president before him and do it in record time.  But that’s not what’s happening is it!?  Instead, the foreign leaders are singing President Trump’s praises.
The Donald Trump of the media would have you believe everything negative they spew about our President, but the man who is representing America is truly the epitome of a great leader.
We now have a president who is respected by foreign leaders, and I thank God for him, and would ask everyone to pray for our President, for guidance, wisdom, and protection.
 Critics of Islam Censored As World Braces 
For More Terror 
As the left covers up for Islamic terrorists, people who speak out are being silenced

Those who dare speak out against the incredibly evil carnage of the ISIS attacks against children are being silenced by the cabal that controls western media.
Also, those who encourage the slaughter of innocents are being given full reign to amplify their hateful message.

The left is continually pushing the narrative that if we just cater to the whims of every insane group it will appease them. History tells another story.

The director-general of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), “former” Communist Party operative Irina Bokova (shown), is facing what appears to be an internal rebellion among the controversial UN organ's own staff members. Among other concerns, more than 150 employees of UNESCO who spoke out portrayed Bokova as an out-of-control and deeply corrupt official who has been abusing the organization for her own personal benefit since she got there. And now, she is apparently working to install a friendly successor — preferably one loyal to a communist regime — to ensure that her alleged mismanagement and abuse of power are not exposed. But the truth is coming out anyway.      
In a May 5 letter to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, 159 current and former UNESCO staffers said that Bokova must either resign or be fired from her post. Blasting what they said were Bokova's many personal and professional failings — not to mention her well-known background with the mass-murdering Bulgarian Communist Party — the UN employees also said she must be prevented from continuing to travel around the globe wasting the organization's scarce resources, “creating chaos,” and appointing top managers who lack basic skills and qualifications. If she refuses to resign, “she should be dismissed immediately by the Governing bodies of UNESCO for major diplomatic and managerial errors,” said the letter, which was also sent to the prime minister and president of Bulgaria.

On top of that, the employees called for internal and external investigations of Bokova and dozens of her “collaborators.” “Taxpayers deserve to know where and how UNESCO money was used over the last 4 years,” explained the letter to UN chief Guterres, who sources say has received it. “We therefore appeal to the UNSG, to the internal and to the external UNESCO auditors for a rapid investigation of Bokova's decisions on using UNESCO funds over that period. The findings must be made public, then discussed by the Executive Board in order to trigger off the accountability and impeachment procedure.” The signatories also pointed to comments made by government ambassadors to UNESCO, including Arab and European officials, highlighting problems at the UN agency. 
The document, which was obtained by The New American and verified by sources inside the organization, also praised the current UN chief, a leading socialist, who triumphed over Bokova in the race to lead the UN. As this magazine reported, Bokova was being pushed by a wide array of powerful forces, ranging from the Kremlin and the Bulgarian Communist establishment to mega-banker Baron Eric de Rothschild of the unfathomably wealthy Rothschild banking dynasty. In the end, though, with her well-documented communist past and swirling accusations of corruption and scandal, even the army of former operatives for the Bulgarian “little KGB” that ran her campaign was unable to build enough support for her failed bid.         
UNESCO employees were obviously pleased with that. “Under the leadership of one of the contesters for the UNSG position, the former communist regime activist Ms. Irina Bokova, who luckily for the entire world did not get the job, our wonderful and deeply cherished Organization is totally agonizing,” they wrote. “Ms. Bokova is a disastrous Director-General, a mean human being and we are all happy that you won over her. After destroying UNESCO, she could have been in a position to dismantle the UN. The diplomatic battle over the UNSG position exposed the UNESCO Director General and transparently demonstrated her managerial ineptitude and total lack of moral values to lead UNESCO.”  
Among the many criticisms of Bokova outlined by the outraged UN agency staffers was her enabling of an anti-Israel resolution downplaying the Jewish people's links to the Temple Mount, the Western Wall, and other religious sites in Jerusalem. “By her absence from the usual diplomatic process organized inside UNESCO that all previous Directors Generals led themselves, by her time spent on campaigning instead of working at UNESCO, by her interest directed only towards her personal ambition, she greatly contributed to this outcome that legitimately raises Israel's and U.S. ire,” they wrote. “The Russian 'Red Princess' is the only DG that proved capable to rile up simultaneously both Arab countries and Israel and its supporters.”
Also sparking outrage among agency staffers was Bokova's personal role in admitting the “State of Palestine” to the UN agency as a full-fledged member state, an act that immediately triggered a statutory ban on U.S. funding of UNESCO. That blow resulted in a loss of about a fourth of UNESCO's budget. Next, in an apparent effort to please the mass-murdering Communist Chinese dictatorship — which held a key vote on the UN Security Council as she was seeking the UN's top job — Bokova alienated the Japanese government, another one of UNESCO's top financiers. According to the letter, Bokova's antics have resulted in governments refusing to hand over some $750 million that they otherwise would have paid to UNESCO.
Bokova's use and abuse of UNESCO resources to pursue her own ambitions — namely, the highest UN post — also came under fire from staffers. They noted that in seeking the appointment, she named UNESCO deputies from four of the five permanent members of the Security Council “in total disregard for normal practices and with no consideration for qualifications and competences.” They also accused Bokova of “stealing funds” from programs aimed at promoting girls' education, the safety of journalists, and free speech so she could travel around the world campaigning for the position of UN secretary-general. In all, they said, more than $3 million were “effectively stolen” from priority UNESCO activities. “Only for that proven deed she should be asked to resign immediately,” they said.  
Along with that, she “enhanced bad practices within the organization such as corruption and traffic of influence,” the staffers and their representatives wrote. “Bokova is neither respected nor appreciated by UNESCO's staff who considers her unfair, unreliable and selfish,” the more than 150 current and former UNESCO employees, under the banner of “Save UNESCO,” said in the letter. “Also, using the private jets of presidents for her travels is not passive but active corruption.” Other examples of malfeasance highlighted in the document include Bokova's refusal to disclose her financial declaration as other UN high officials do, preventing UNESCO's Ethics Office from investigating her financial situation, lying on her CV to inflate her credentials, and more.
In an exclusive story published in January, this magazine reported on insiders within the organization trying to blow the whistle on widespread internal corruption, nepotism, and more. Multiple governments, including many of UNESCO's top donors, were fleeing the organization, with several, including the United Kingdom, issuing scathing criticism of UNESCO and its leadership. Officials with UNESCO called for an investigation by an external auditor to sort out the facts. The Bulgarian watchdog group Bivol conducted an investigation and found that Bokova's luxury properties across multiple countries could not be accounted for with her taxpayer-funded salary, even when adding in her husband's tax-funded salary. 
On her way out the door, though, with her term ending later this year, UNESCO sources told The New American at the time that Chinese Communist agent Qian Tang, who leads UNESCO’s “education sector,” was seen as a good candidate for the job by Bokova. He is now among the finalists, along with a number of candidates from communist and Islamic governments such as Vietnam, Qatar, Egypt, Azerbaijan, and Iraq. Bokova is known to be close to the strongman ruling Azerbaijan, which has attracted scrutiny from members of the U.S. Congress. There is also said to be an effort to pack the agency's leadership — the top job, the executive board, and the president of the general conference — with Islamic officials. Either way, the goal is to ensure that no serious investigations occur after she leaves office. 
A well-informed senior UNESCO official who requested anonymity to speak freely — after all, the UN has a long and sordid history of persecuting whistleblowers — outlined the plot. “Bokova is desperately trying to push for a successor from a friendly country [government],” the source told The New American in an interview. “At least three of the candidates —  Egypt, Azerbaijan, and China — and possibly Vietnam, are said to have been thrown in the game by Bokova in order to get a successor who would not touch her dirt. Promises have been made to all those candidates. So she is playing these people, too, and in full knowledge that they are not suitable for the post she is nonetheless pushing for their candidacies. The Chinese candidate tops this game.”
The source also said that Guterres reacted to the letter by giving Bokova advice on how to avoid investigation. According to the source, Guterres is worried about doing anything that might be perceived as “revenge” against his leading competitor for the top UN post. However, he also is said to be concerned about allowing the scandals to pass without consequences — especially with the UN facing growing scrutiny in the media and among U.S. lawmakers for corruption, impunity, and more. Indeed, despite their differences, Guterres and Bokova share quite a bit in common. Bokova's renamed Bulgarian Communist Party, which murdered hundreds of thousands of innocent people over its history, is a member in good standing of the Socialist International, which Guterres led prior to taking his current job at the UN.
UNESCO has a long history of being under the control of communists, corruptocrats, mass murderers, tyrants, and other extremists. Indeed, the extremism was so outrageous that President Ronald Reagan withdrew from UNESCO entirely. The agency continues to push its radical ideological agenda on children worldwide, most recently issuing a report demanding more globalist and socialist indoctrination of children via textbooks. It remains unclear how the Trump administration intends to deal with UNESCO, which remains ineligible for U.S. funding under federal law.
Unless Bokova resigns or is removed from her post, she will remain on the job until November, at which point the next director-general will take over. The selection of the next leader is currently ongoing. Sources told The New American that the letter would likely be released publicly in the coming weeks, especially if no efforts are made to rein in Bokova's alleged reign of criminality and corruption. Bokova has refused to respond to repeated requests for comment from The New American magazine. Bulgarian officials who received the letter have not commented either. But one thing is certain: UNESCO and its leadership are far from unique within the increasingly corrupt and lawless UN.
