Three El Salvadorean MS-13 gang members have been arrested in Long Island for the brutal rape of a 16-year-old. MS-13 gang members were part of the invasion of illegal immigrants last year.
“This is one of the most brutal, heinous crimes that I have seen in a long, long time,” Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota said at a news conference following the suspects’ arraignments. “This poor young woman is so lucky that, quite frankly, that she is alive. These are vicious young men, vicious young men and what they did to her was absolutely terrible.” NBCNewsNewYork
Arrested were Jose Cornejo (18), Larios (17), Joel Escobar(17), all of Brentwood. Escobar was charged in April with robbing and beating a man. All three are from El Salvador and are MS-13 gang members. All three are being charged as adults.
George Soros, who funded the Ferguson agitators is now funding the Voter Rights lawsuits thru Hillary’s Super Pac American Bridge. The lawsuits are being led by attorney Marc Elias, who is the Clinton campaign’s general counsel.
A Democratic legal fight against restrictive voting laws enacted in recent years by Republican-controlled state governments is being largely paid for by a single liberal benefactor: the billionaire philanthropist George Soros.
Mr. Soros, the Hungarian-born investor whose first major involvement in American politics was a voter-mobilization drive in the 2004 presidential race, has yet to commit the many millions of dollars that Hillary Rodham Clinton’s allies hope he and other like-minded billionaires will pour into the “super PAC” directly aiding her campaign.
But it turns out that Mr. Soros has already agreed to put as much as $5 million into the litigation effort, which Democrats hope will erode restrictions on voter access that they say could otherwise prove decisive in a close election.
The lawsuits — which are being led by a lawyer whose clients include Mrs. Clinton’s campaign — are attacking a variety of measures, including voter-identification requirements that Democrats consider onerous, time restrictions imposed on early voting that they say could make it difficult to cast ballots the weekend before Election Day, and rules that could nullify ballots cast in the wrong precinct.

Not only was it the Mayor of Baltimore giving ‘space to destroy’, Baltimore Councilman Nick Mosby, husband of Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby , who is prosecuting the cops in the Freddie Gray case, admits he was involved in telling the police to stand down.
Update:Judge refuses to grant gag order after Mosby’s request was filed in the wrong court.
Once again Baltimore state’s attorney Marilyn Mosby is the center of controversy. Mosby has filed a protective order to block the release of Gray’s autopsy The medical reports could offer evidence contrary to Mosby’s account of events when she announced the arrest of six police officers.
Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby plans to seek a protective order that would block the release of Freddie Gray’s autopsy report and other “sensitive” documents as she prosecutes the six police officers involved in his arrest.
Mosby told The Baltimore Sun that prosecutors “have a duty to ensure a fair and impartial process for all parties involved” and “will not be baited into litigating this case through the media.”
But an attorney for one of the officers said the effort shows that “there is something in that autopsy report that they are trying to hide.”
“Mrs. Mosby is the one who did an announcement discussing what she said the evidence was in a nationally televised speech,” said Ivan Bates, who represents Sgt. Alicia White. “Now that it is time to turn over the evidence, to ask for a protective order is beyond disingenuous.
“It’s as if she wants to do everything to make sure our clients do not get a fair trial.” BaltimoreSun
Usaama Rahim, the 26-year-old Muslim man, who was shot and killed on a Boston street this week when he planned to attack and behead police officers
A terrorism suspect shot dead by law enforcement officers in Boston Tuesday morning had been planning to behead police officers, according to an affidavit filed by an unidentified FBI agent who was working on the case.
Court documents quote from recorded phone calls between the suspect, Usaama Rahim, 26, and an alleged conspirator, David Wright, of Everett, Massachusetts. The FBI also interviewed Wright. TheGuardian
Before targeting police officers Rahim had planned to beheld Pamela Geller police confirm.
A Boston man shot to death by the terror investigators who were surveilling him had talked about beheading blogger Pamela Geller before deciding to target police officers, Boston police said Thursday.
“There was some mention of that name,” said Police Commissioner William Evans, who dismissed it as “wishful thinking” while speaking on the “Today” show.
Geller wasn’t surprised that she may have been a target. She’s a combative personality known for provoking Muslims by campaigning against a mosque near the World Trade Center site in New York, sponsoring inflammatory advertisements and organizing Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest in Texas
“They want to make an example out of me to frighten the rest of the US into silence and submission,” Geller wrote in an e-mail to the AP on Thursday. “This is not about me. This is about whether the US will stand for freedom or submit and cower before violent intimidation.” CNSNews
The agency enforcing Oregon’s anti-discrimination law (Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries) “appears to be working working closely with a powerful gay rights advocacy group in its case against Aaron and Melissa Klein, owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa.”
Bias and conflict of interest?

Americans often say that we are not, or should not, be the policeman of the world. What is the alternative?

U.S. cities and states have been pushing back against the federal government’s refugee resettlement program partly due to the increase of Muslim refugees. In response the Obama administration has increased grants to organizations to educate the U.S. public to welcome the Muslim refugees.
Millions have been give to different organizations. One organization receiving grant funds is Welcoming America. “Welcoming America, which works to “educate” elected officials and the public in “receiving communities” before refugees arrive. Welcoming America was started in 2010 with seed money from George Soros’s Open Society Institute,” reports WND.
The increase in grant spending comes after a report published in 2013 by the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS), which cited “a notable rise in state and local anti-refugee sentiment and activity across the country.” These groups say they are nonprofit “charitable” organizations, while most of their money comes from government grants, reports WND.
The HIAS report stated, ” anti-immigrant groups have suggested that the program is a gateway for terrorists. ”
In October 2008, Shirwa Ahmed, also from Minneapolis, blew himself up in one of a string of Shabab attacks in northern Somalia. In May of this year, Farah Mohamed Beledi, 27, of St. Paul, tried to attack a government checkpoint in Mogadishu but was killed by African Union troops before he could detonate his explosives.

WND reported, “that 14 Democratic senators wrote a letter to Obama requesting that he “dramatically increase” the number of refugees allowed into the country from Syria.”
The cost of the Baltimore riots is staggering. The cost is an estimated $20 million and Baltimore is looking for outside help to pay the cost, a city that has been criticized for doing little to stop the mayhem.
This estimate is includes overtime for police and firefighters, damage to city-owned property and repaying other jurisdictions for police and other assistance. It does not include lost taxes, lost revenue, cost to businesses, or state and federal costs.
The estimated $20 million, the finance director said could be covered temporarily from the rainy day fund while seeking reimbursement for up to 75 percent from Federal Emergency Management Agency.
“Hogan has asked President Barack Obama to issue a disaster declaration so the city and state can be reimbursed for some expenses, officials said.” FEMA reimbursement is suppose to be used for disaster relief not failed democratic policies and leadership.

More federal spending can not fix a city government of broken social and economic policies. The liberal’s fix is more spending, more debt, more taxation, and more regulation.
In an interview with CBN News, Republican presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio (FL) touched on a ‘real and present danger” he sees for mainstream Christianity.
If you think about it, we are at the water’s edge of the argument that mainstream Christian teaching is hate speech. Because today we’ve reached the point in our society where if you do not support same-sex marriage you are labeled a homophobe and a hater. So what’s the next step after that? After they are done going after individuals, the next step is to argue that the teachings of mainstream Christianity, the catechism of the Catholic Church is hate speech and there’s a real and present danger.
He also touched on the importance of faith and family.
The family is the original cell of society,” Rubio told CBN News. “It is the first and most important government. It is the first church. The family is the singular most important institution in society. It existed before government. It existed before laws.”
