Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf warned residents/Illegals of potential ICE raids NOW she has a bill named after her
Rep. Steve King, a conservative Republican from Iowa, announced what he’s calling the “Mayor Libby Schaaf Act of 2018” on Monday, in an attempt to make it illegal for public officials to warn of upcoming immigration sweeps.
The Trump administration has made no secrete they want to rein in illegal immigration. The King bill will target state and local government officials who purposefully “broadcast” information relating to “any imminent action by a federal law enforcement officer or agent” would be guilty of obstruction of justice and could face up to five years in prison, as well as a fine.
In February Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf warned residents over the weekend of potential ICE raids. Schaff said she learned of the raids from “multiple credible sources” and she felt it was her “duty and moral obligation as Mayor to give those families fair warning when that threat appears imminent.”
Schaaf, who is seeking reelection, said in January that she’d be willing to go to jail (the Federal Government should grant her wish) to defend the city’s sanctuary city status, and has openly opposed the Trump administration’s crackdown on illegal immigration.
“It is no surprise that the bully in chief is continuing to try to intimidate our most vulnerable residents,” Schaaf said at the time. “We’re very clear that our values are to protect all of our residents regardless of where we come from. We want to protect families, not tear them apart.”

Mayor Schaaf Encourages Residents to Consult Immigration Resources Due to Potential ICE Activity
Oakland, CA – Earlier today, I learned from multiple credible sources that the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is preparing to conduct an operation in the Bay Area, including Oakland, starting as soon as within the next 24 hours.
As Mayor of Oakland, I am sharing this information publicly not to panic our residents but to protect them.
My priority is for the well-being and safety of all residents — particularly our most vulnerable — and I know that Oakland is safer when we share information, encourage community awareness, and care for our neighbors.
Interested residents should consult the website http://www.centrolegal.org/acilep/ to understand their legal rights and options in the event they face detention or know someone who needs legal representation.
In Oakland, OUSD public schools have strict protocols in place to protect our students and families. Oakland police officers are prohibited from participating in ICE activities.
Additionally, California state law prohibits business owners from assisting ICE agents in immigration enforcement and bars federal agents from accessing employee-only areas.
I have reached out to local leaders and partners in our immigrant communities to share this information. Our shared message is clear: We want residents to prepare, not panic. We understand ICE has used activity rumors in the past as a tactic to create fear; our intent is for our community to go about their daily lives without fear, but resiliency and awareness.
I am not aware of any further details of the ICE operation, such as precise locations.
I know that Oakland is a city of law-abiding immigrants and families who deserve to live free from the constant threat of arrest and deportation.
I believe it is my duty and moral obligation as Mayor to give those families fair warning when that threat appears imminent.
President Trump indicated Friday that he was “thinking about” pulling ICE out of California. And just letting the illegals take over and California would come back begging in a few months for Federal Protection. I think this is the wrong approach. It is time to begin arresting these officials that will not enforce Federal Immigration laws for obstruction of justice.
President Trump triggers liberals 5 days before election, dares to point out Central America criminals in timely ad
President Trump triggers liberals 5 days before the mid-term elections. What did he do this time? He dared to point out that the illegal caravan liberals choose to call migrants has some Central America criminals included among the women and children the mainstream press show.
Trump is different from any Republican the libtards have ever encountered. He speaks the truth and calls a spade a spade. And Trump has said since his campaign that he is not opposed to immigration he just wants the best of the best from other countries not their criminals and thugs.
The video ad produced for the Trump campaign features Central America criminal Luis Bracamontes, a man who had previously been deported but returned to the United States and was convicted in February in the slaying of two California deputies.
“I’m going to kill more cops soon,” a grinning Bracamontes is shown saying in court as captions flash across the screen reading “Democrats let him into our country. Democrats let him stay.”
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 31, 2018
President Trump has been clear about protecting the United States from Central America criminals. He is sending as many as 15,000 additional troops to the Southern border to deter the illegal invaders.
Democrats got the memo and all major liberal news sites and liberal politicians are comparing the ad to Willy Horton. Another thug that George H.W. Bush used in 1988 to point out that Michael Dukakis was weak on crime.
Horton was a convicted murderer who committed rape while furloughed under a program in Massachusetts where Democratic nominee Michael Dukakis was governor. Because the Bush ad had a mug shot of Horton that showed he was black Democrats lost their minds and said Bush was a racist.
Democrats simply do not want to enforce the law. They have been AWOL on comprehensive immigration reform. In May Democrats including Nancy Pelosi lost their minds for calling savage Central America criminals MS13 animals. Nancy Pelosi defended the gang saying they were all God’s children.
It is pretty easy to understand Democrats. If you want to fight crime, you’re a racist. If you want to stop 5-7,000 illegal invaders from entering our country, your racist. If you want to stop Central America criminals, your racist. Get out and vote for Republicans. These people cannot be allowed to regain power.
Recently I posted that 58% of Americans are afraid to share their political views. I am not so here are my 30 facts of life. At some point I may add to the list. There are a couple of opinions that I will not share. My hope is that my readers will become more open with their political and religious views.

This is not a comprehensive list of my 30 facts of life. I reserve the right to add to the list. Stay posted for revisions.
Environmentalist are using the California wildfires to push their liberal agenda of banning fossil fuels. The environmentalists are using the wildfires raging across northern California to push the governor and state lawmakers to ban oil and natural gas drilling, fight Trump administration regulatory rollbacks and mandate the use of more green energy.
The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), one of the most prominent activist groups, tweeted Thursday the record-breaking Carr Fire should convince California “to double down on our convictions on climate” and “fight” the Trump administration rolling back greenhouse gas rules for cars.
Fossil fuels are public enemy number one to environmentalist because at the grass roots level they are in fact Socialist. The real enemy of environmentalist is Capitalism. Former Presidents Obama and Bush before him both bowed to environmentalist in their own way staging campaigns against fossil fuels.
Former President Obama described the oil industry as a “tyranny.” Allegedly “pro-oil” former president Bush coined the expression “America’s addiction to oil.” There is far more public hostility to the fossil fuel industry than to the tobacco industry. And it is accused of being far more damaging. As Keystone pipeline opposition leader Bill McKibben put it to widespread acclaim, the fossil fuel industry is “Public Enemy Number One to the survival of our planetary civilization.”
California environmentalist are looking to eliminate fossil fuels and go to complete clean energy which means they will go deeper and deeper in debt. Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune used the wildfires as a chance to push California Gov. Jerry Brown to stop issuing oil and natural gas drilling permits in the state.
“San Diego has committed to go to 100 percent clean energy. San Jose, San Francisco, Oakland, large parts of the state at the city level have committed to move to 100 percent clean energy,” Brune said. “We’re looking to see the whole state get off of all coal, all gas, all fossil fuels and move to 100 percent clean energy as quickly as possible over the coming years.”
There is only one way to defeat the environmentalists’ moral case against fossil fuels—refute its central idea that fossil fuels destroy the planet. Because if we don’t refute that idea, we accept it, and if we accept that fossil fuels are destroying the planet, the only logical conclusion is to cease new development and slow down existing development as much as possible.
Deportation bus tour coming soon in Georgia. A Republican candidate for Governor in Georgia is bringing what he calls a “Deportation Bus Tour’ to the state’s “sanctuary cities” to tout his support for expediting deportation for immigrants in the United States illegally.
State Sen. Michael Williams’s campaign said in a press release that the tour will “expose how dangerous illegal aliens ruin local economies, cost American jobs, increase healthcare costs and lower education standards.”
Williams says in a commercial for the tour that his deportation plan will “fill this bus with illegals to send them back to where they came from.”
“We’re not just going to track them and watch them roam around our state,” Williams says. “We’re going to put them on this bus and send ‘em home.”
Williams, a former co-chair of President Trump’s campaign in Georgia, is a staunch supporter of the federal 287(g) immigration program, in which state and local law-enforcement agencies work closely with Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to hand over immigrants without legal status who were arrested on crimes unrelated to immigration.
In the press release, Williams’s campaign praises him as “the most outspoken anti-illegal candidate in Georgia’s history.”
Sanctuary cities have been in the news with President Trump vowing to do something about illegal immigration. Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf said she is willing to go to jail to protect her sanctuary city. Interim San Francisco mayor Mark Farrell joined the insanity and said that he also is willing to go to jail to protect his sanctuary city status.
Williams is one of seven GOP candidates vying to replace Gov. Nathan Deal (R), who is approaching the end of his second term. A recent University of Georgia poll found that only about 3 percent of voters say they support Williams.
CNN was shocked by the answer they received from Cindy Garcia the wife of deported man says the President was just enforcing laws. Garcia’s husband Jorge is not a criminal says Garcia. He came to the country as a 10 year old illegally but has not broken any laws.
CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin started the segment by criticizing the Trump administration for separating children from their families and played a clip of the Garcia family crying as their father was being picked up for deportation.
Baldwin asked Garcia if she was upset with President Trump over her husband being deported. Her answer shocked the CNN anchor.
“I am not upset at our government due to the fact that I am a U.S. citizen and that our laws come first,” Garcia said. “Our laws are just broken and need to be fixed.”
“I can’t be mad at Trump for doing his job because that is his job to protect us as U.S. citizens from criminals,” she added, before explaining that her husband is not a criminal and suggesting immigration law be reformed to focus only on criminal illegal immigrants.
“For the criminals that have come here illegally, they need to go back,” Garcia concluded.
The facts are that the deported man broke the law. The laws are written to be enforced. The fact that he was here 30 years or more illegally are irrelevant. It is absolutely not fair to immigrants who enter the country legally and wait and go through the citizenship process.
Horrible images of ICE detainees in cages emerge over weekend to embarrass Trump, only problem the photos are from 2014
Horrible images of ICE detainees in cages emerged over the weekend the left hoping to use them to embarrass President Trump. The only problem the pictures were taken in 2014 when the oh so ever compassionate Barack Hussein Obama was President.
Former Obama speechwriter John Favreau and several others posted the pictures on Twitter but quickly erased them after discovering they did not fit their narrative and in fact implicated their former boss. The man the left likes to paint as the most compassionate individual ever to walk the earth.
Favreau warned that ‘the only debate that matters’, after seeing those photos, was ‘how we force our government to get these kids back to their families as fast as humanly possible.’
While activist and Intercept columnist Shaun King tweeted that it was an ‘abomination’ adding that children were ‘being held in cages, like dogs.’
The photos showed pictures of young children, separated from their parents, and forced to sleep on mats on the floor at two separate detention centers in Brownsville and Nogales, Texas.
Favreau’s tweet stated ” Look at these pictures, this is happening right now, and the only debate that matters is how we force our government to get these kids back to their families as fast as humanly possible.”
I repeat, abolish ICE.

— Tonia (@Tonia8675309) May 28, 2018
Twitter quickly responded to the mistreatment of ICE detainees. But again these are not pictures of ICE detainees under President Trump. They are from Barack Hussein Obama. President Trump has tried multiple times to work with Congress on DACA reform and securing the border. This congress has only one mission, embarrassing and obstructing President Trump in any way possible.
Jerry Brown says low life politicians exploiting illegals, “I think it’s time to just chill, recognize the fact that they’re here”
Jerry Brown says low life politicians are exploiting illegals in his state.Brown speaking Tuesday blamed Republicans for the country’s dysfunctional immigration system. “I think it’s time to just chill, recognize the fact that they’re here,” Brown said of the country’s undocumented immigrants.
“With all the other talk and noise about the border, the fact is America has 10 to 11 million people that are here,” he continued. “And they’re human beings, they have families, it’s very important that they be integrated in a humane, intelligent way.”
Speaking to reporters at the National Press Club, part of a brief visit to the nation’s capital, Brown wined how the immigration debate has become “an inflammatory football that very low-life politicians like to exploit. And I think it’s shocking, it’s despicable and it’s harmful to California, mostly to the people.”
There is a Revolution going on in California. Soooo many Sanctuary areas want OUT of this ridiculous, crime infested & breeding concept. Jerry Brown is trying to back out of the National Guard at the Border, but the people of the State are not happy. Want Security & Safety NOW!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 18, 2018
Jerry Brown is continuing his war of words with President Trump on the problem with illegals in his state. The President tweeted that there is a revolution going on in California and it is ridiculous. Jerry Brown is trying to back out of the National Guard at the border, but the people of the State are not happy.
Brown responded “If Trump wants to round ‘em up like some totalitarian government and ship them out, then say that,” the governor said. “But he doesn’t say that because the American people will repudiate him and the party.”
President Trump has said nothing about rounding them all up and his administration is no where near the totalitarian government we had under Barack Hussein Obama. The President has offered a path to citizenship for nearly 2 million illegals but he also wants protections such as the wall, end to chain migration. The administration has also filed suit against the California sanctuary state policy.
There are no low life politicians behind the California crisis. Jerry Brown, Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf who President Trump has called a disgrace and California Attorney General Xavier Becerra are the “low life politicans.”
Orange County California the birthplace of Richard Nixon is hopefully becoming the centerpiece for resistance to the states Sanctuary status. While Oakland’s mayor Libby Schaaf has said she is willing to go to jail for illegals and California Attorney General Xavier Becerra has filed suit against the Trump administration requiring citizenship proof on the 2020 census.
There is a voice of reason in Orange County. The county has proven that there is a conservative faction still alive in California. On Tuesday the Orange County Board of Supervisors joined the backlash against California’s pro-immigrant policies when it voted to fight the state’s so-called sanctuary laws.
In doing so the Orange County Board of Supervisors has become the voice of reason in California. The centerpiece leading the fight against the Trump haters that will do anything including giving their state over to illegals to oppose Trump.
My Administration stands in solidarity with the brave citizens in Orange County defending their rights against California's illegal and unconstitutional Sanctuary policies. California's Sanctuary laws….
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 28, 2018
….release known dangerous criminals into communities across the State. All citizens have the right to be protected by Federal law and strong borders.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 28, 2018
The stance against efforts to protect people in this country illegally comes a generation after Orange County became the birthplace of Proposition 187, the divisive 1994 ballot measure meant to cut public benefits — such as schooling and healthcare — for such residents.
“There’s no question that the demographics and politics of Orange County are changing,” said Dan Schnur, a political communications professor at USC. “But there’s an important difference between changing and changed. … A [place] of more than 3 million people doesn’t come with an on-off switch.”
Fred Smoller, a political science professor at Chapman University in Orange County, agreed, that the suburban region has changed from a region of “old white dudes” that are being replaced by “far more tolerant young people and Latinos.”
“It’s no doubt that Orange County is no longer a red county…it’s violet he added. ”
President Trump approves of the resistance against California Sanctuary madness tweeting. “My administration stands in solidarity with the brave citizens of Orange County defending their rights against California’s illegal and unconstitutional Sanctuary laws… Release known dangerous criminals into communities across the state. All citizens have the right to be protected by Federal law and strong borders.
Add San Diego County to the list of California cities fed up with the sanctuary state law and joining the federal lawsuit against the state. San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted 3-1 Tuesday to support the Trump administration’s lawsuit against California over so-called sanctuary laws that the state passed last year to limit its role in immigration enforcement.
The county will file an amicus brief at the first available opportunity, likely if and when the case moves to a higher court on appeal, said Supervisor Kristin Gaspar, chairwoman of the board.
Margaret Baker, who lives near the border, told the board that backing the lawsuit will discourage immigrants from reporting crime.
“We see this lawsuit as an attack on our safety and the well-being of our community,” she said.
David Garcias, president of the San Diego chapter of the union that represents county government employees, told the supervisors, “I believe you’re on the wrong side of history. This will affect your legacy.”
There is a Revolution going on in California. Soooo many Sanctuary areas want OUT of this ridiculous, crime infested & breeding concept. Jerry Brown is trying to back out of the National Guard at the Border, but the people of the State are not happy. Want Security & Safety NOW!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 18, 2018
The three supervisors who voted to support the lawsuit said it was about public safety.
“We’re talking about people who are crossing the border illegally, coming into this county and committing a crime and them being let loose probably to commit another crime,” said Dianne Jacob, supervisor for the district that covers East County. “That creates a public-safety issue and creates a problem in our neighborhoods.”
She worried about terrorists crossing the border illegally, she said.
“This is a different day than it was 20, 30, 40 years ago,” Jacob said. “That’s why it was important for us to stand up, as controversial as it was.”
San Diego county is the biggest county to join the federal lawsuit. President Trump tweeted this morning that “there is a revolution going on in California”. It appears that many are not as eager as Governor moonbeam who says people need to just “chill” and realize that illegals are here to stay.
Tearing down monuments is becoming popular again, now Native Americans want a former President to come down
Arcata California one of the most liberal places in the country (that is saying a lot). Native Americans in Arcata are offended by a statue of former President William McKinley. You knew the monument debate had to come back. Liberals are at heart history revisionist. They will not stop until all real history is gone and they can replace it with their Socialist America.
No city so far has removed a statue of a former President but Arcata is poised to do just that. The object of the Native Americans offence is an 8 1/2 foot statue of William McKinley. McKinley stands accused of the slaughter of Native people in the US and abroad. Of course he is not alive to defend himself.
” Put a rope around his neck and tear it down,” Chris Peters shouted at a rally held at the statue, which has been located in the town square for a quarter of a century, with no one previously offended.
Peters, heads the Arcata based Seventh Generation fund for Indigenous people , called McKinley a proponent of “settler colonialism” that “savaged, raped and killed.”
One Arcata resident ” is so upset over the McKinley statue he protested for 26 straight days at the statue. He held a sign “This Christmas, give the gift of not supporting racism and murder. Remove the statue.”
Once again I say how do people live in California? And at what point do we tell these small groups that are offended by statues to piss off?
President Trump continued his battle with sanctuary cities this week on a campaign stop in Pennsylvania. Trump is calling on Congress to immediately stop funding American cities breaking federal law.
Trump ordered Congress to stop giving money to cities that insist on going against federal immigration law. Trump said Congress has to put the lives of American citizens before those breaking the law.
Just this past week Attorney General Jeff Sessions filed suit against the state of California. This prompted the nutty California Governor Jerry Brown to state that the Trump administration had declared war on his state.
California must be full of nuts because Oakland mayor Libby Schaff has said that she is willing to go to jail to protect Oakland’s illegals. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials announced this week that the four-day raid led to the arrest of 232 illegal immigrants in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Trump: "I'm calling on Congress to stop funding sanctuary cities so we can save American lives." pic.twitter.com/nTvUG3He80
— Washington Examiner (@dcexaminer) March 11, 2018
Of those 232, 180 “were either convicted criminals, had been issued a final order of removal and failed to depart the United States, or had been previously removed” from the country and had come back illegally.
The arrests included 115 who “had prior felony convictions for serious or violent offenses, such as child sex crimes, weapons charges and assault, or had past convictions for significant or multiple misdemeanors.”
Trump said “I’m calling on Congress to stop funding sanctuary cities so we can save American lives. The massive funding bill should not give precious an massive tax payer grants to citied aiding and abetting criminals,” Trump said at a Republican rally for Representative Rick Saccone. “It’s what they do.”
Democrats have made it clear that they put illegals before the lives of American citizens. If 115 violent criminals were arrested in Oakland with their mayor warning the illegals ICE was coming imagine the trash they could have gotten off the street if they had no warning. Trump called Schaff “a disgrace.”
California Governor Jerry Brown struck back at Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Wednesday after the Federal Government filed suit against California’s stance on immigration laws.
In a press conference in Sacramento Brown said that Sessions was catering to Trump and his conservative base.
“This is really unprecedented for the chief law enforcement officer of the United States to come out to California and act more like Fox News than a law enforcement officer. This is a political stunt,” Brown said. “We know the Trump administration is full of liars. They’ve pled guilty already to the special counsel.”
“This is basically going to war against the state of California, the engine of the American economy. It’s not wise, it’s not right, and it will not stand,” Brown said.
The lawsuit targets three California laws protecting illegals. The first one employers to give employees notice of ICE raids, absurd. The second allows California’s Department of Justice to inspect federal detention facilities where illegals are held. The third prevents state and local law enforcement from cooperating with federal officials in the transfer of illegals to detention facilities again absurd.
In court documents filed in the Eastern District of California, the Department of Justice says those three laws “have the purpose and effect of making it more difficult for federal immigration officers to carry out their responsibilities in California.”
“California is using every power it has, and some it doesn’t, to frustrate federal law enforcement,” Sessions told the gathering of officers in Sacramento. “So you can be sure I’m going to use every power I have to stop them.”
Jeff Sessions suggested California was trying to nullify federal law much the same as Chicago, New Orleans and other Sanctuary cities.
“There is no nullification. There is no secession. Federal law is the supreme law of the land. I would invite any doubters to go to Gettysburg, to the tombstones of John C. Calhoun and Abraham Lincoln. This matter has been settled,” Sessions said.
Brown said that Sessions speech was “unbecoming” of the nations chief law enforcement officer and that Sessions was trying to get back in the good graces of President Trump.
“I assume, and this is pure speculation, that Jeff thinks that Donald will be happy with him,” Brown said. “Let’s face it, the Trump White House is under siege. [Special counsel Robert] Mueller is closing in. There are more indictments to come.”
The California Governor added a parting shot saying he felt the lawsuit “would last longer than the Trump presidency.”
Mark Farrell Interim mayor of San Francisco says he is willing to go to jail to ensure San Francisco remains a “sanctuary city” . In other words Farrell is willing to go to jail to keep San Francisco a shithole city that people are leaving so fast UHaul cannot keep trucks in town.
Farrell speaking to the Democrat base illegals as amnesty activist were protesting in front of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) building said that San Francisco will forever be a “sanctuary city.” He also said according to ABC7 he is willing to get arrested if that’s what it takes to defend sanctuary city policies,” echoing comments that Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf made last week.
It is time for the Federal Government to grant the wish of Mark Farrell and Libby Schaaf. If mayors and the Governor of California Jerry Brown are unwilling to uphold federal immigration laws they should be arrested. In the case of Schaaf last week warning illegals that ICE was coming for him she put the lives of ICE agents in danger. She should be arrested today.
The activist in San Francisco had gathered to protest the arrest of over 200 illegals, nearly half of them with criminal records.The activists had signs that read “ICE, go melt yourself,” “ICE out of CA,” “Stop Racist Deportations,” and “Sanctuary for All.” They also chanted “Shut down ICE.”
ICE said sanctuary cities like “San Francisco and Oakland force” the agency to “focus additional resources to conduct at-large arrests in the community, putting officers, the general public and aliens at greater risk and increasing the incidents of collateral arrests.”
In 2015, an illegal immigrant who had been previously deported multiple times told authorities after he murdered Kate Steinle that he came to San Francisco because he knew it was a “sanctuary city.” Steinle’s tragic death allowed Donald Trump to make illegal immigration a national issue, which enabled him to surge to the front of the GOP field and never look back.
ICE also singled out two illegal immigrants currently believed to be living in Oakland who were not detained possibly because of Schaaf’s “irresponsible” alert:
a Honduran citizen who was previously arrested in San Francisco County multiple times for cocaine possession and transport, probation violations and sex with a minor under 16, and;a citizen of Mexico who was previously arrested and convicted for carrying a loaded firearm, transportation and sale of narcotics and DUI.
San Francisco recently had to spend 30 million dollars cleaning up hypodermic needles, feces and trash in the streets of San Francisco. It is no wonder that San Franciscans are leaving so fast UHaul cannot keep moving trucks. Who would want to live in a literal shithole city that the leadership puts illegals before their citizens.
As fun as it is to ridicule the FBI for devoting massive resources to chasing down Hillary Clinton’s oppo research while blowing off repeated, specific warnings about school shooter Nikolas Cruz, we’ve put a lot on the agency’s plate.
We’re hauling in nearly 2 million manifestly unvetted Third World immigrants every year, leading to a slew of FBI “Watch Lists” with a million names apiece. In 2015, Director James Comey said that there were ISIS investigations in all 50 states — even Idaho and Alaska! And that’s just one terrorist organization.
Maybe the FBI brass would still be a bunch of incompetent, PC nincompoops if we weren’t dumping millions of psychotic and terrorist foreigners on the country. But even the most efficient organization would have trouble keeping track of the Nikolas Cruzes when our immigration policies require approximately one-third of the country to be constantly watching another third of the country.
Thanks to our Second Amendment, the United States has fewer mass shootings per capita than many other developed countries, including Norway, France, Switzerland, Finland, Belgium and the Czech Republic. (And 98 percent of our mass shootings occur in “gun-free zones.”)
But imagine if we could cut our mass shootings in half?
There have been about 34 mass shootings since 2000. Forty-seven percent — 16 — were committed by first- and second-generation immigrants, i.e. people who never would have been here but for Teddy Kennedy’s 1965 immigration act.
And the immigrant mass shootings have been some of the most spectacular ones, such as Fort Hood and San Bernardino. Two of the deadliest mass shootings in U.S. history, at Virginia Tech in 2007 and at the Pulse Nightclub in 2016, were committed by first- and second-generation immigrants, i.e., people who were in this country because Teddy was pouting in his room and refused to come out until he got his own legacy.
(Excluded from both lists: the Las Vegas shooting, because law enforcement has released nothing but lies about it, so that shooting remains unclassifiable; family dispute shootings; targeted assassinations of police officers; and shootings on Indian reservations.)
Here’s the list of immigrant mass shootings, defined as a shooting at the same general time and location, not during the commission of another crime, that leaves at least four people dead — i.e. no gangland shootings, no “man kills family, then self” and no drug deals gone bad.
On account of the Rule of Journalism that permits the word “immigrant” to be used only in sentences with the word “valedictorian,” you may not have heard of some of these mass shootings at all.
1) Omar Mateen, son of Afghan immigrants, killed 49 people at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando on June 12, 2016.
2) First- and second-generation Pakistani immigrants Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik opened fire at a community center Christmas party in San Bernardino, California, on Dec. 2, 2015, killing 14 people.
3) English immigrant Christopher Harper-Mercer killed 9 people at Umpqua Community College in southwest Oregon on Oct. 1, 2015.
4) Kuwaiti immigrant Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez shot and killed five people in attacks on two military installations in Chattanooga, Tennessee, on July 16, 2015.
5) Second-generation Malaysian immigrant Elliot Rodger killed six people on May 23, 2014, around the campus of the University of California, Santa Barbara.
6) Second-generation immigrant John Zawahri opened fire at his Southern California home and later at the campus of Santa Monica College on June 7, 2013, killing five in all. (The New York Times never mentioned that he was the child of Lebanese immigrants. The Times didn’t even mention that his father used to beat up his mother, despite that paper’s usual heightened interest in stories about men being mean to women.)

If you missed your favorite immigrant mass shooting, please note that I excluded Jamaican immigrant Colin Ferguson (Long Island Railroad massacre in 1993); Nigerian immigrant Peter Odighizuwa (Appalachian School of Law shooting in 2002); Haitian illegal immigrant Kesler Dufrene (North Miami shooting in 2012); and Nigerian immigrant Henry Williams Obotetukudo (Bronx-Lebanon Hospital shooting in 2017). We are only counting mass shootings since 2000 that left at least four people dead.
First- and second-generation immigrants have committed more than 40 percent of all mass shootings since 2000. I know we’ve been admitting Third World immigrants at a breakneck pace, but I don’t think immigrants make up nearly half the population yet.
Once we exclude the immigrant mass shooters, a clearer pattern emerges. The typical American perpetrator is a young man with paranoid schizophrenia — or, as we’re now euphemistically calling it, “autism” — probably exacerbated by pot, a deadly combo platter.
An immigration moratorium and widespread deportations would not only cut mass shootings in half, but it would also free up the FBI’s time to focus on these delusional young men with the terrifying stare, who hear voices no one else hears.
Young men like Nikolas Cruz.
The Oakland Raiders and Denver Broncos game today featured a bench clearing brawl. Aqib Talib and Michael Crabtree apparently have some history and Crabtree sought out Talib for a personal fight. Coaches must have been negligent in telling Crabtree to keep his helmet on in a football fight.
Sunday’s fight started when Talib snatched Crabtree’s chain right off of his neck. That’s exactly where this beef began last season. In the Broncos’ 24-6 win over the Raiders in Week 17 last season, Talib went over to Crabtree on the sideline and yanked his chain, breaking it. Cameras then spotted Talib later laughing about it.

Why would Talib rip off Crabtree’s chain in the first place?
Talib said he did it because Crabtree’s chain annoyed him more and more as the season went on.
“He just been wearing that chain all year, man, it’s just been growing on me,” he said after the Week 17 game. And then he decided he’d had enough. Ant the bench clearing brawl focused on Talib and Crabtree.
“I said if he wears that chain in front of me, I’m going to snatch it off,” Talib said. “He wore it in front of me, so I had to snatch it off. He started crying to the ref. He didn’t say nothing to me though.”
“I really don’t like No. 21, though. I think he’s fake … You aren’t tough,” Crabtree said. “You aren’t defending anybody up like that. You’re acting. You’re snatching chains up on the field. What do you accomplish? Are you hard? Are you tough? Does that make you tough? You’re snatching chains in front of the police and take off running. That was childish, man.”
Crabtree didn’t retaliate against Talib at the time. But he did speak to the refs about it.
“The refs are talking to me like I was playing dirty,” Crabtree said. “A guy snatches my chain. He’s hitting me after the play. But, if I react, they’ll kick me out of the game.
“It was too much. You see the dude and what he’s doing in front of me. What do you want me to do? I can’t react, or they kick me out of the game and I’m the bad guy. I made a business decision for my team.”
Crabtree said he wanted to hit Talib, but he controlled himself.
The bench clearing brawl cannot help NFL sagging ratings. The NFL is a physical violent sport. But the type of activity that Crabtree and Talib were involved in is just two thugs being thugs.
Is current NFL protest deja vu of The University of Missouri? Freshman enrollment is down over 30% since the football team and students forced the resignation of then president Tim Wolfe in November of 2015.
Columbia Missouri is a beautiful college town and not far from Ferguson, where the Michael Brown shooting caused riots and racial strife in 2014. Since the Brown incident Missouri students have been organizing and protesting the administration’s slow response to racial tensions.
The tensions escalated when the undergraduate student body president was called the n-word, which having played college football myself I know black athletes refer in that way to each other every day. The other alleged incident was a swastika drawn in human feces. This was apparently the last straw.
The legion of black collegians and others (including football players published a list of demands for the board of regents including the removal of Wolfe as president. Students organized a hunger strike and the football team threatened to sit out the rest of its games. The University leadership relented to the demands of the mob and Wolfe was fired.
Not only is enrollment way down at the University but the football program has suffered. Prior to 2015 the tigers football program had enjoyed quite a few years of success. They are 10-15 since 2015 and a shell of their former selves.
Earlier this month, UM System President Mun Choi announced $10 million in budget cuts at Missouri’s four campuses, resulting in the loss of 474 jobs.
The NFL had opportunities to end the current nonsense that culminated in 3 teams staying in the tunnel for the national anthem Sunday. And apparently the Oakland/Los Angeles/Las Vegas/NFL whore Raiders would have been the 4th team but they would have forfeited rights to the coin toss. And the end result could be deja vu to the University of Missouri results.
Because Roger Goodell is a weak leader and owners are afraid to confront their overpaid players NFL viewership is down significantly and you will see fewer and fewer crowd shots because the stadiums are half full at some games. With the mass protest of this Past Sunday the bleeding will continue as long as weak leadership prevails.
