Migrants Who Lie About Identity And Lie About Being Refugees Can Now Stay in the UK, Court Rules

That judge did a lot of twisting to come up with that ruling.

Thousands more could be allowed to stay in the UK, even if they have committed serious crimes.  Now it is known that lying makes no difference more will come and do this.

A Supreme Court judgment has revealed a “loophole in the law” that could prevent asylum seekers being deported if they are found to have lied about their real identities to get citizenship.

Two Albanians who pretended to be Kosovan refugees to stay in Britain have won a legal test case to prevent their fraud resulting in them being thrown out of the country. The men’s victory is expected to cost the taxpayer up to £1 million in legal fees.

More than 80,000 refugees from Kosovo fled the war in the Balkans in the 1990’s to claim asylum here. However, thousands of Albanians used that crisis to pretend they were from Kosovo fleeing war to claim Britain citizenship.

Among them was Dinjan Hysaj, who aged 21 pretended to be a child refugee from Kosovo and was given British citizenship. Agron Bakijasi, also from Albania, used a false name, pretended to be from Kosovo and lied about his age to secure citizenship.

However, 40-year-old Hysaj’s lies came to light in 2011 when he was jailed for five years for glassing a man in a Hertfordshire pub. Bakijasi’s fraud emerged after his partner returned to Kosovo, revealing his true identity.

After the Home Office applied to deport them, the men’s lawyers argued that lying to obtain such citizenship was not enough to strip them of it.

In a complex legal judgment, the Supreme Court judges last week concluded that issues surrounding those claiming citizenship using a made up identity of someone who does not exist results in “such uncertainty meaning that the law is difficult to apply in practice”.

The judges add: “It also has a number of illogical and unsatisfactory consequences. Thus it is not clear when the use of a false identity to obtain citizenship by one person will lead to the nullification of the grant of citizenship to those making a derivative claim.”

In effect, because they had not stolen a person’s identity but instead made up a fictional character, “neither appellant pretended to be someone he was not”.

The judges said the judgement was given in “unusual circumstances” because Amber Rudd, the Home Secretary who wants them deported, now accepts that British courts have not properly clarified what types of identify fraud should see such migrants stripped of their citizenship. The judgement was analysing  points of law” arising from Mrs. Rudd allow the men’s appeals “by consent”. However, the Home Office is to now pursue other avenues to deport the men.

Andrew Bridgen, the Conservative MP, said this judgment exposed a loophole that needed new British legislation to ensure criminals could not abuse the British legal system.

“We need to tighten up the law so people who make up identities and lie to get British citizenship can be stripped of it and be deported. These are not the sorts of people we want to have in our country.  Telegraph

President Trump To Dems: No DACA Without Wall And End To Chain Migration

This beats the usual Republican way of giving the Democrats what they want in exchange for a vague “take a look” at Republican demands later after the bill is passed and signed.

Check their ages:  The DACA program was implemented by the Obama administration in 2012.  To be eligible for the DACA program a person had to be under 16.  That would mean that the oldest of these individuals would be 20 – 21 years old.

President Donald Trump will not sign a bill de-facto legalizing illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children unless it contains provisions for a wall on the southern border, he declared in a tweet Friday.

Trump ended the Obama-era executive action, otherwise known as DACA, in September telling Congress it had six months to codify the program into law before protections expired. Obama’s DACA program issued work permits to illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children and granted them certain protections from deportation. There are approximately 700,000 DACA recipients in the U.S.

Democrats have been reluctant to give any concessions whatsoever on DACA, saying the program should be passed through both chambers without any concessions on Republican immigration priorities. Trump’s tweet indicates he will not allow a “clean DACA” bill and will insist that provisions to fund his southern border wall and reform the legal immigration system must be included. DailyCaller

Swarthmore College Offers Courses In ‘queering God’ and “queering The Bible”

Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania should be discouraging Cultural Marxism –  destroying all traditions, capitalism, tradition family, Christianity, individuality, liberty… to create a socialist utopia.

One of the nation’s most prestigious liberal arts colleges is advancing a “queer theology” agenda with hopes of destabilizing traditional beliefs about what the Bible says about gender and sexuality…

“Queering the Bible” is a one-credit class that surveys “queer and trans readings of biblical texts.”

“By reading the Bible with the methods of queer and trans theoretical approaches, this class destabilizes long held assumptions about what the Bible – and religion – says about gender and sexuality,” the course description reads.

The school’s religion department is also teaching a class that questions the sexuality of the Almighty called, “Queering God: Feminist and Queer Theology.”

“The God of the Bible and later Jewish and Christian literature is distinctively masculine, definitely male. Or is He?” the course description reads. “If we can point out places in traditional writings where God is nurturing, forgiving, and loving, does that mean that God is feminine, or female?”

Key themes of that particular class include exploring the “tensions between feminist and queer theology” and examines “feminist and queer writings about God.”

Anti-Christian

Critics blasted the college’s religion courses and suggested they were meant to undermine Christianity.

“This is about sanitizing and neutralizing the prohibitions on homosexual acts that Scripture unequivocally condemns,” one observer noted online.

The president of Truett-McConnell University, a conservative Christian school in Georgia, accused Swarthmore of prostituting the Bible.

“If there were a list entitled, “Best Snowflake Colleges in America,” I am quite certain that Swarthmore College would be near the top of the list,” Dr. Emir Caner told the Todd Starnes Radio Show. “Keep in mind, this is an institution of higher learning that has produced such ‘accomplished’ politicians as failed presidential candidate Michael Dukakis.”…

Dr. Robert Jeffress, the pastor of the First Baptist Church in Dallas and a spiritual advisor to President Trump, warned about the spiritual dangers of twisting God’s word.

“In suggesting that God is ‘queer’ Swarthmore College is guilty of nothing short of modern day idolatry,” Jeffress told the Todd Starnes Radio Show.

“When you read the Bible you will discover that God reserved His harshest condemnation for individuals and nations that practiced idolatry – creating an imaginary god who conformed to a culture’s immorality,” Jeffress said.  FoxNews

In Germany Record Number Of Migrants Living Off Welfare

Reality.

It is time to bury the Progressive myth that migrants swarming into Europe are going to replace the continent’s shrinking workforce. Hundreds of thousands of migrants, mostly fighting-age men from Arab and Muslim countries, are now living off welfare instead of seeking gainful employment, German media reports say.

Municipalities and town councils across Germany face severe financial constraints as an ever-increasing number of young migrants go on welfare. An estimated 600,000 of the newly-arrived ‘refugees’ are currently living on the dole despite being young and apparently employable, German newspaper Die Welt writes.

The number of migrants living on the dole is growing at an alarming rate. In 2017, their figure rose by 70 percent compared to that of last year. Die Welt reported the story:

Municipalities warn of the failing labor market integration of the refugees. Around 600,000 refugees are receiving basic income support payment (the Hartz IV benefits), Gerd Landsberg, the Managing Director of Association of Towns and Municipalities, told the newspapers belonging to Funke Mediengruppe. That is an increase of 250.000 individuals compared to the figure of 2016.

Less than 200,000 refugees have taken up occupations that were subjected to social security deductions. “The numbers show that massive efforts must to be undertaken to successfully integrate refugees into the labor market,” Landsberg added.  TruthRevolt

Federal Agents Found Four Preserved Fetuses In Their Second Trimester During Detroit Raid Of Body Broker’s Warehouse

Horror!

Rathburn operated International Biological Inc.

Federal agents discovered four preserved fetuses in the Detroit warehouse of a man who sold human body parts, confidential photographs reviewed by Reuters show.

The fetuses were found during a December 2013 raid of businessman Arthur Rathburn´s warehouse. The fetuses, which appear to have been in their second trimester, were submerged in a liquid that included human brain tissue.

Rathburn, a former body broker, is accused of defrauding customers by sending them diseased body parts. He has pleaded not guilty and his trial is set for January.

How Rathburn acquired the fetuses and what he intended to do with them is unclear. Rathburn´s lawyers did not respond to requests for comment, and neither the indictment nor other documents made public in his case mention the fetuses.

Indictment

The indictment states IBI would get the bodies and then dismember them to rent out for training. Both Arthur and Elizabeth knew the bodies died from infectious disease, and sometimes “obtained diseased remains from their suppliers at a reduced cost,” according to the documents.

The documents also show IBI would sell to its customers, “falsely representing to those customers that the remains were free from certain infectious diseases” because the customers would not accept some infected remains.

“The scheme included (1) directly profiting from infectious remains supplied to unwitting customers in violation of contractual agreements and (2) not disclosing to customers that IBI failed to take industry standard precautions to prevent potential cross-contamination between infections and non-infectious remains,” the indictment read.

IBI is accused of selling the body parts from January 2007 through December 2013.

The company also failed to take industry-standard precautions when it came to dismembering the body parts, according to the indictment.

Arthur “used a chainsaw, band saw, and reciprocating saw to dismember bodies without taking sanitary precautions,” and “stored human heads by stacking them directly on top of each other without any protective barrier.” WXYZ

U.S. Representatives Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Bob Goodlatte (R-VA)

‘This needs to be reviewed,’ said U.S. Representative Marsha Blackburn, a Republican from Tennessee who recently chaired a special U.S. House committee on the use of fetal tissue.

Blackburn recoiled when a Reuters reporter showed her some of the photographs, taken by government officials involved in the raid.

In four of the photos, a crime scene investigator in a hazmat suit uses forceps to lift a different fetus from the brownish liquid. In three other photos, a marker that includes a government evidence identification number lies beside a fetus.

‘The actions depicted in these photos are an insult to human dignity,’ said U.S. Representative Bob Goodlatte, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee.

A Republican from Virginia, Goodlatte said that if individuals ‘violate federal laws and traffic in body parts of unborn children for monetary gain,’ they should be ‘held accountable.’  DailyMail

Legal and virtually unregulated 

Reuters’ report noted that in the United States it is legal to buy and sell cadavers and other body parts except for organs used in transplants and certain fetal tissue. However, the multimillion dollar a year body parts industry operates with minimal regulation, which means that “in most states, including Michigan, public health authorities are not required to regularly inspect body broker facilities.”

For example, a reporter for Reuters was able to purchase two human heads and a cervical spine from Restore Life USA after sending just a couple of emails and paying “$900 plus shipping.”  DailyWire

PM Justin Trudeau On Returning ISIS Fighters: They’ll Be An ‘Extraordinarily Powerful Voice’ For Canada

Delusional.

In a year-end interview with CTV, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau claimed that he believes returning Jihadists can be rehabilitated into “powerful” voices against radicalism within Canada.

Video:  Justin Trudeau on Returning ISIS Fighters: They’ll Be A ‘Extraordinarily Powerful Voice’ For Canada

They are returning to Canada because ISIS has lost, not because they became disillusioned and rejected the ideology.

ISIS has lost 98 percent of the territory it once held — with half of that terror group’s so-called “caliphate” having been recaptured since President Trump took office less than a year ago, U.S. military officials said Tuesday…

The latest American intelligence assessment says fewer than 1,000 ISIS fighters now remain in Iraq and Syria, down from a peak of nearly 45,000 just two years ago. U.S. officials credit nearly 30,000 U.S.-led coalition airstrikes and regional partners on the ground for killing more than 70,000 jihadists. Meanwhile, only a few thousand have returned home.

The remaining ISIS strongholds are concentrated in a small area along the border of Syria and Iraq. ISIS, at one point, controlled an area the size of Ohio.  FoxNews

Chance of reintegrating Canadian ISIS fighters ‘pretty remote’: Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale.

The likelihood of successfully reintegrating ISIS fighters with ties to Canada who have returned home is “pretty remote,” admits Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale.

After days of questioning over Canada’s plan to rehabilitate returning ISIS fighters, the federal government’s point man on national security says it might be too late for some.

“If you want to have a good solid hope of some kind of successful intervention, it has to be at a much earlier stage. You have to prevent the problem before it exists,” said Goodale in an interview with Evan Solomon, host of CTV’s Question Period.

“Once a person has been in a war zone, once they’ve been actively engaged in terrorist-related activities, the capacity to turn them around is pretty remote. That’s why you have to use the other tools, including collecting the evidence and prosecuting wherever and whenever you can,” he said. CTVNews

U.S. Slashes UN Budget

Good.

The Trump administration has negotiated big cuts in the United Nations budget.

According to reports, UN spending will be reduced more than $285 million in 2018 and 2019.

There’s no word on how big the overall budget is for those years and what, if any, impact this will have on the US contribution to the UN

US ambassador Nikki Haley cited the organization’s ” inefficiency and overspending” in announcing the funding cuts and she would not let “the generosity of the American people be taken advantage of.”  CBN

The Prophetic Purpose Of Jesus’ Birth in Bethlehem

Interesting.

In this article, let’s explore why God strategically chose Bethlehem.

Why Bethlehem?

Bethlehem was previously known as the city David was from and where he was crowned king of Israel. The humble town is approximately six miles south of Jerusalem, where Jesus would later be crucified. Because of a prophecy foretold by Micah, for some 700 years, God’s people looked to Bethlehem as the birthplace of their long-awaited Messiah.

“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, although you are small among the tribes of Judah, from you will come forth for Me one who will be ruler over Israel” (Mic. 5:2).

The Bible assures God orders the steps of His people (see Ps. 37:23). Perhaps there is no better example of this promise than how Mary and Joseph found themselves delivering our Messiah in the place that was foretold.

As Luke recorded in his Gospel, while Mary was pregnant with baby Jesus, the Roman emperor decreed that a census be taken (see Luke 2:1). Consequently, because Joseph was a descendant of David’s royal line, the census required he make the several-day journey from his residence in Nazareth to report to his ancestral home—Bethlehem. And the story is sure to note that Mary makes the journey, too. (One can imagine Mary’s accompaniment was not by choice for a woman in her condition, but likely out of obligation to enroll as the new wife of Joseph.)

Consider the precise timing of these events. Just a little longer in Nazareth, and the prophecy of the Messiah’s birth in Bethlehem would have failed. Yet by no planning on Mary’s part, nor any intention on the part of the emperor to fulfill any prophecy, Mary and Joseph are brought to Bethlehem. And at just that moment, Mary goes into labor to deliver Jesus.

What Bethlehem Reveals

Bethlehem’s selection by God as the birthplace of the Messiah was no happenstance. Nor was it chosen only because Joseph’s lineage happened to originate there. No, Bethlehem was strategically picked to be part of God’s redemption plan from the beginning—that Jesus would come to earth as the final, once-for-all, sacrificial lamb of God (see 1 Pet. 1:19–20).

As only God could know, events were orchestrated throughout the centuries, so that by the time of Jesus’ birth, Bethlehem was the city where lambs purchased for sacrifice in the temple were born and raised. In fact, in those days, every firstborn male lamb in Bethlehem was set aside to later be delivered to Jerusalem. And without coincidence, so was the lamb of God. Charisma

Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night.  And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid.  Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.  For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.   And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”  Luke 2:8-12

 So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds said to one another, “Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us.” And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger.  Luke 2:15-16

How did the shepherds know where to go?

Many do not realize that Micah further prophesied that kingship would come to the “Daughter of Jerusalem” at Migdal Eder: Micah 4:8 “As for you, O watchtower of the flock [Hebrew Migdal Eder], O stronghold of the Daughter of Zion, the former dominion will be restored to you; kingship will come to the Daughter of Jerusalem.” Migdal Eder was a watchtower located in the northern part of Bethlehem built to protect the Temple flocks.

“During lambing season the sheep were brought there from the fields, as the lower level functioned as the birthing room for sacrificial lambs.”

Priestly shepherds “would wrap the newborn lambs in swaddling clothes” and place them in a manger “until they calmed down” to keep them “without defect”, suitable to be sacrificial lambs for the sin of the Israelites. Bethlehem was special because the shepherds in the fields of Bethlehem raised lambs for the Jewish temple in Jerusalem. The shepherds who heard the angelic choir and came to see the baby Jesus were certainly familiar with the technique to birth a sacrificial lamb, and were likely puzzled by why a baby was birthed in the manner and location of a sacrificial lamb.

In fact, the angels did not have to tell the shepherds precisely where to go in Bethlehem to find Jesus, because there was only one manger where sacrificial lambs were birthed, the cave under the watchtower of Migdal Edar.  Rochester Edu

Communist Antifa Protester Hit By Truck While Opposing Christian Demonstration

The “March for Jesus” was organized by Patriot Prayer.

An activist who identified as part of the Antifa movement was hit by a truck while protesting against an event called “March for Jesus” on Saturday, RT reports.

Video from the scene captured by Ruptly shows Antifa protesters shouting pro-Communist slogans into a megaphone while demonstrating against a Christian event in Portland, Oregon.

The protester who was eventually hit by the vehicle is seen referring to a Christian flag with a cross on it as a “white supremacist symbol.”

The protester is hit by the truck at the 1:30 mark. DailyCaller
