Ilhan Omar HUMILIATED: Her Radical Push To Defund The Police Rejected By Voters In MN

Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN) has been railing against law enforcement ever since she won fellow Muslim Keith Ellison’s House seat in 2018.

100 Percent Fed Up reports – The immigrant who came to America from Somalia, one of the most violent and lawless nations in the world, used the death of George Floyd to ignite her base and encourage them to make their communities less safe by voting to defund the police.

This evening, only hours before the polls closed, Ilhan Omar pleaded with her radical followers to go to the polls and support proposal #2, a proposal to replace the police. If Omar is missing high crime and lax law enforcement, perhaps Rep. Omar should consider making a move back to Somalia?

Unfortunately, the ultimate grievance representative from Minnesota couldn’t have been more out of touch with her constituents, as the defund the police proposal that she pushed to the end failed in the liberal state of Minnesota.

MSN reports – Voters in Minnesota’s largest city have rejected what would have been an unprecedented move to dismantle the police department at the ballot box Tuesday following calls for reform following the death of George Floyd.

The measure asked voters if they favored amending the city’s charter to replace the Minneapolis Police Department with a Department of Public Safety. The initiative would have removed language from the charter related to the agency, including minimum funding requirements, and would have divided control of public safety between the mayor and City Council.

The measure asked voters if they favored amending the city’s charter to replace the Minneapolis Police Department with a Department of Public Safety. The initiative would have removed language from the charter related to the agency, including minimum funding requirements, and would have divided control of public safety between the mayor and City Council.

It would have essentially removed power from the mayor and police chief in an effort to re-imagine policing. Tuesday’s vote comes as Minneapolis is experiencing an uptick in violent crime similar to other cities.

According to the ballot language, the public safety department would have employed a “comprehensive public health approach” to policing, putting a greater emphasis on public health, specifically mental health.

The measure was spearheaded by Yes 4 Minneapolis, a coalition of businesses and other groups, which gathered 22,000 signatures to put it on the ballot, which was a battle in itself after it became the subject of legal challenges. The Minnesota Supreme Court ruled in September that voters could decide on the matter.

‘Worst Military Rule Better Than Buhari’s Government’, Nigerian Governor

GOVERNOR Samuel Ortom of Benue State has claimed that the worst military rule is better than Muhammadu Buhari-led government.

The governor told journalists in Makurdi, Benue State capital: “I have been privileged to read the history of Nigeria and that of those who have been destroying us, including the military. Usually, we say that the worst democratic government is better than the military government.

“That is what we used to say, but for the purpose of APC-led government, I want to say that the worst military government we have had in Nigeria is better than this particular government led by APC.”

Speaking further on the Buhari administration, he said the present government hated being told the truth.

“I have never seen anything like this, people who don’t want you to tell them the truth or advise them, try to twist things and tell the world that you are against them,” he said.

He praised the success of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) convention that took place over the weekend, boasting that the party was ready to take over leadership of the country again.

“We (PDP) are determined to take over leadership of this country, come 2023 because of the failure of APC led government. They are being deceitful and not being able to secure our land. They have rather succeeded in destroying our economy, our security, our social life and everything you can think of in this country.”

Sanger’s Pivot of Civilization

“There is every indication that feeble-mindedness in its protean forms is on the increase, that it has leaped the barriers, and that there is truly, as some of the scientific eugenists have pointed out, a feeble-minded peril to future generations—unless the feeble-minded are prevented from reproducing their kind. . . . Every feeble-minded girl or woman of the hereditary type, especially of the moron class, should be segregated during the reproductive period. Otherwise, she is almost certain to bear imbecile children, who in turn are just as certain to breed other defectives”.

Sanger’s concern is runaway “defectives” who will cripple the future. But what makes an individual “feeble-minded” or “defective”? Sanger speaks as if such people can be identified by established clinical benchmarks. But later in the same work, she writes:

Are we to check the infant mortality rate among the feeble-minded and aid the unfortunate offspring to grow up a menace to the civilized community even when not actually certifiable as mentally defective or not obviously imbecile?

Sanger’s subjectivism is dangerous. Who determines whether someone is “feeble-minded”? Who determines whether someone is a “menace to society”?

Eugenics is an international concern. In 1933, Sanger’s magazine reprints an article written for its English readers, titled “Eugenic Sterilization,” by Ernst Rudin, the chief architect of the Nazi sterilization program.

During the same year, the Nazi government passes the Law for the Prevention of Progeny with Hereditary Diseases. Its goal (and the goal of others like it) is to purge German society and its territories of undesirables to breed a pure Aryan society. It calls for the sterilization of all persons who suffer from mental illness, physical deformity, feeble-mindedness, learning disabilities, epilepsy, blindness, deafness, and severe alcoholism. All of these things, according to the science of the day, are hereditary diseases.

Happiness and the Lesson of the Martyrs

If you know why a priest would kiss the ladder and climb to an inhuman death with notable joy, you know what will make you happy

Father Nicholas Garlick and two other Catholic priests stood waiting for their executioners to prepare the fire that was to burn their entrails. It was 1588 in Elizabethan England, and Fr. Garlick had been arrested for preaching the Catholic faith and was sentenced to being hanged, drawn, and quartered. Under this most horrific punishment, the victim would be hanged until almost dead and then disemboweled, with his entrails tossed into a fire. Finally, the victim would have all four limbs severed and then suffer decapitation. Often, the limbs and head would be preserved and set in a public place as a warning to others.

As he awaited this butchery, Garlick found the fortitude to preach a sermon. He told all who were gathered about the one, true faith of Jesus Christ and that they should care for their souls. When the time came, it is said that Garlick perceived the priest in front of him starting to hesitate and, being worried that his brother priest may recant his faith, Garlick skipped him in line, kissed the ladder, and went up to his eternal reward. There exists a pious tradition that Garlick’s head received its due burial in a churchyard, but to this day, that final resting place has never been found.

Why would Fr. Garlick, now Bl. Nicholas Garlick, kiss the ladder and climb toward an inhuman death with notable joy?

In Greek, the word martyr means “witness.” To what is a martyr’s death witnessing? St. Thomas Aquinas tells us that martyrdom is the greatest sign of charity, the love that comes from knowing God (ST II-II.124.3). The martyr chooses to give witness to the reality of God over his own life.

The juxtaposition of a man who would skip in line to undergo a horrific death invites us to question our own priorities. We all pursue various goods in life. We seek health, pleasure, wealth; we enjoy good meals, friendships, family, and various things. Yet we naturally have to prioritize these goods. We seek some for the sake of others and prioritize one over another. A man may work fewer hours to spend more time with his family or eat foods he does not enjoy for the sake of his health. And what drives us to seek these goods and to arrange one over the other? It is happiness. The attainment of a good is happiness. When we have that first cup of coffee or a walk with a good friend, it makes us happy. We delight in the good we attain. All of us have a natural desire to be happy, and we move from one good to another seeking happiness.

Yet though we may all seek happiness, we do not all agree on what causes happiness. Sometimes what we perceive as a good is not truly good for us. We fall into the trap of what our tradition calls apparent goods. Most often, these apparent goods take the form of seeking pleasure. A man who engages in pornography and self-abuse is saying these “goods” are better for him than his own virtue or the good of his marriage. The perceived happiness they bring is more important to him than the happiness of virtue or the happiness of a holy marriage. Though, at times, our intellect may know that something is not truly good for us, our actions reveal how we have truly prioritized the goods that matter most to us.

Ultimately, in each person’s life, there is one final good over which he prioritizes all others—a single goal to which he orients his entire life. It is to this good, this final good, that all of our actions are arranged.

Martyrs are a witness to the greatest good for humanity: God. Fr. Garlick prioritized God, our ultimate good, over all others—even the good of living. He understood that God is unlike any created good in this life. A cup of coffee is good, but whatever happiness it brings eventually ends. The happiness that comes from knowing and loving God is different. God is the uncreated good. He is eternal, infinite; thus, unlike the cup of coffee that is exhaustible, the goodness of God is inexhaustible. The delight God brings can never end. Moreover, God is the universal good. Each particular good makes us happy in a particular way—the happiness that comes from drinking coffee is distinct from the happiness one has at the birth of a child. Yet God is the universal Good. He makes us happy in all ways.

In this life, we move from good to good, seeking happiness. It can cause in us a certain restlessness, as we ultimately feel unsatisfied and empty. Even in this life, however, we can come to know and love God. Grace can elevate our natural desire for happiness. Though the happiness we experience in God in this life is imperfect, it can help us cultivate rest and temper our desire to find happiness in created goods. A catechesis on happiness helps illuminate St. Augustine’s famous line: “You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you.” In the next life, we can experience perfect happiness. We can rest and delight in God for all eternity.

Martyrs are signs of authentic happiness. Bl. Nicholas Garlick, my ancestor, skipped in line to undergo a horrific death because he knew that it was the portal to his eternal happiness. The death of a martyr invites us to re-examine how we have prioritized the goods in our life and ask: would I be willing to sacrifice all that is good, even the good of living, for the sake of the Good, God?

Recall that Bl. Garlick, facing his own death, gave a sermon exhorting the people to care for their own souls. He had made his choice, and he desired that those gathered there would choose eternal happiness as well.

Feds Incited Jan. 6, Entrapped Citizens

Tucker Carlson documentary: ‘No decent person wants to believe it’s true, but increasingly there’s evidence it is’

Tucker Carlson’s three-part documentary on the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol drew vehement opposition even before it aired — with warnings the Fox News host was about to kill his career — and now viewers are able to see for themselves what all the furor is about.

In the first installment, aired Monday, Carlson began by noting that most Americans have assumed the chaos during the formal counting of the Electoral College vote was the result of intelligence failures or incompetence.

But that isn’t what his investigation has found. The evidence points to “incitement by federal agents” and the “intentional entrapment of American citizens,” he says in the documentary.

“No decent person wants to believe that’s true. But increasingly there’s evidence that it is true.”

Carlson is offering people who want to see the series three free months of the streaming service Fox Nation by going to TuckerCarlson.com and filling in an email address. (Choose between one of the plans, and in the checkout, a code will be automatically inserted granting three months for free, with the opportunity to cancel before payment become due in January).

Domestic War on Terror 2.0
The documentary opens with claims by leaders, including President Biden and his spokeswoman Jen Psaki, that the biggest threat America faces is from “white supremacists” they describe as “domestic terrorists.”

Many Democrats have called Jan. 6 a worse attack on America than 9/11, and Carlson shows how the government has linked the two, creating “Domestic War on Terror 2.0.”

The left, he says, is now using 1/6 “as a pretext to strip millions of Americans of their constitutional rights and defame them.”

On his Fox News show, Carlson has featured reporting on the mysterious Jan. 6 figure Ray Epps, who was highlighted during a House hearing earlier this month by Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky. The congressman showed to Attorney General Merrick Garland video footage of Epps urging Trump supporters to breach the Capitol while they boo and chant “fed, fed, fed,” suggesting they believed him to be an informant planted by the FBI.

An extensive investigation by Revolver News has led to three major findings concerning Epps that counter the official narrative and provide more evidence of proactive federal involvement in the Capitol riot.

In the documentary’s first episode, Carlson asks, “How much of what we were told about Jan. 6 is a lie?”

He examines the case of Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick. In a story repeated over and over by media, the New York Times reported Sicknick was killed by Trump supporters who bludgeoned him with a fire extinguisher.

That didn’t happen, and the Times quietly retracted its story. Later, the D.C medical examiner ruled the officer died of natural causes.

Nevertheless, the people who were at the Capitol that day continue to be characterized by media as a “murderous” or “deadly mob” of “insurrectionists.”

‘My life has been torn apart’

The first episode in the documentary includes the story of conservative activist Ali Alexander, a native of the United Arab Emirates who founded the group Stop the Steal.

Alexander, who describes himself as a black man, said he has been branded “a conspirator in a so-called white nationalist insurrection” after running 500 peaceful Stop the Steal events with no calls for police.

“My life has been torn apart,” he said. “I regularly receive violent death threats.”

And he can no longer conduct business online.

‘Political warfare operation’
Carlson interviewed J. Michael Waller, a senior analyst for strategy at the Center for Security Policy in Washington, D.C.

During the Cold War, Waller infiltrated Soviet front organizations, causing provocations to discredit the Soviet Union. One of his successes was provoking violence at a Soviet-sponsored World Peace Congress in Moscow.

Waller witnessed the events of Jan. 6, which he described, based on his experience, as “a political warfare operation.”

He pointed to specific places where he saw “agent provocateurs” who attacked the Capitol with “a military-like precision,” goading members of the crowd to cause trouble.

One person who fits the description of a provocateur is John Sullivan.

WND reported Sullivan’s arrest a little more than a week after Jan. 6. Sullivan was in the Capitol building at the scene of the death of Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt. He has insisted he was there merely as a passive observer to “document” the chaos. But Sullivan, the founder of a group called Insurgence USA, already was facing rioting and criminal mischief charges related to a Black Lives Matter protest in Provo, Utah. And he’s seen in a video at a late-August 2020 rally in Washington, D.C., leading a chant: “It’s time for a revolution.”

“We about to burn this sh*** down,” he said. “We got to rip Trump out of office.”

In a video by Sullivan that he posted on his Discord chat channel, showing him inside the Capitol, he can be heard declaring, “We did it!”

Independent journalist Taylor Hansen, who was assaulted by Sullivan’s group in Utah, said he saw “multiple agitators” on Jan. 6 changing from black bloc clothing into “Trump gear.”

‘We are not that type of people!’
Elijah Schaeffer, a reporter for TheBlaze who was on the scene, said it was not police, it was Trump supporters who held back people who had been stirred by the provocateurs.

Video captures someone yelling to the agitators: “Stop it! Stop! No!

In one video, an angry man is heard yelling: “We are not that type of people! That is not us!”

The tension resided and people “settled down,” Schaeffer said, but that was when it “just got weird.”

Police “fired tear-gas grenades at the crowd of people, who weren’t doing anything wrong,” he said. “It riled everyone up,” and the crowd pushed forward.

“And I’m going, ‘A situation that just got deescalated, why would you want to escalate?'” Schaeffer said.

Hansen said he witnessed a Capitol bike patrol officer pushing a man off a wall. And video shows someone on the scene making the same claim.

“It made the crowd angry enough to actually push up the stairs,” Hansen said.

Windows already were broken, he said, and he walked in the front door of the Capitol.

Waller commented that saying the Jan. 6 event at the Capitol was “worse than the 9/11 attack that killed thousands of people is just really irresponsible talk.”

He believes that essentially a peaceful protest was hijacked by several organized groups with various ideologies.

A video shows an apparent supporter of the president pleading with police officers as the violence escalates.

“Why haven’t you called for backup? Where is your backup? This is our dear Capitol building. And you all are letting it get destroyed on your watch!”

Another plot that ‘ensnared Americans’
Carlson makes considerable use of the reporting of Darren Beattie of Revolver News, who points out the long history of the government “ensnaring Americans in plots.”

Beattie sees a similarity between the plot to kidnap Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and Jan. 6. His reporting found that as many as 12 of the 18 conspirators involved in the Michigan plot were either FBI informants or undercover FBI agents.

And many have been associated with the same militia group that the government has tied to Jan. 6.

Beattie noted that the Whitmer kidnapping plot included a plan to storm the state capital. And Michigan state police stood down, letting protesters, including those in full tactical gear, enter the building unopposed.

He points to a suspicious move by the FBI.

The head of the bureau’s Detroit field office, who presumably oversaw the agents in Michigan plot, has been moved to the D.C. field office.
