Sri Lanka attacks committed by ‘religious extremists’

Sri Lanka attacks committed by religious extremists

Update 9 – The level of obfuscation by mainstream media is too much. Our EIC posted a new article declaring who committed this terrorist attack and who it was committed against.

Update 8 – It’s been half a day since the blasts and still most major news outlets are failing to report this as an act of radical Islamic terrorism. The handful that mention the words “Muslim” or “Islam” do so with every nuanced disclaimer they can come up with. This is beyond the normal silliness of mainstream media.

Update 7 – Social media has been blocked in the country to stop the spreading of “fake news.”

The government has decided to temporarily block social media sites including Facebook and Instagram.Presidential Secretariat said in a statement that the decision to block social media was taken as false news reports were spreading through social media.The statement added that security forces were conducting comprehensive investigations into the incidents of explosions and that the blockage would be effective until investigations were concluded.

Update 6 – Iranian officials offer condolences. Iran is the largest state sponsor of radical Islamic terrorism worldwide.

Update 5 – At least three police officers have been killed in another blast that happened during a raid of the suspects’ homes.

Update 4 – The death toll numbers have risen over 200.

Update 3 – Seven arrests made so far.

Update 2 – President Trump offered assistance.

Update 1 – Two suspects arrested.

Original Story

Terrorism rocked Sri Lanka as six explosions were reported, three in churches and three in high-end hotels. At least two of the churches were hit by suicide bombers. The other four bombing techniques have not been identified.

Though nobody has publicly claimed responsibility for the attacks, Minister of Defence Ruwan Wijewardene said the culprits have been identified as “religious extremists.”

No other information has been given, but the style and targets indicate a high likelihood the attacks were perpetrated by radical Islamic terrorists.

Nearly 200 people have been reported killed and another 600 have been reported as injured. A mandatory curfew was put in place as fears of further attacks and the ongoing investigation require limited movement within the region.

Opinion

It is always good to wait for the facts to emerge before offering opinions outside of the obvious, but I’m going to jump the gun on this one. I’d be shocked if it turned out this was not perpetrated by Islamic extremists. The choice of targets on Easter Sunday, the presence of suicide bombers which are almost always associated with radical Islamic terrorists, and the history of the region can make the conclusion a fairly safe leap.

Regardless of who did it or why, the motive was crystal clear – to strike fear in the hearts of Christians in the region and around the world by committing a heinous and effective attack on one of the holiest days of the year.

While most of western media refuse to acknowledge Christian persecution, it continues to spread and become more intense.

Quote

“We have taken all the necessary precautions to keep this country safe and the people safe. We believe that all the culprits who have been involved in this unfortunate terrorist incident will be taken into custody as soon as possible. They have been identified, and they will be taken into custody as soon as possible.” – Ruwan Wijewardene

Sanctuary policies fail 14-year-old Ariana Funes-Diaz again as her suspected MS-13 murderers released a second time

Published

Three juvenile MS-13 gang members charged for brutal murder of 14-year-old Ariana Funes-Diaz

The story of Ariana Funes-Diaz’s death is saddening because it was completely preventable. Our initial report failed to determine her alleged murderers had already been detained and released a year before she was killed.

MS-13 gang members Josue Rafael Fuentes-Ponce and Joel Ernesto Escobar were in the custody of Prince George County in Maryland with ICE detainer orders on them, but the sanctuary rules in the jurisdiction allowed their release. They allegedly claimed another victim less than a year later, had another detainer put on them following their arrest, and have again been released so they could avoid deportation.

Let that sink in. Murder suspects have been released by law enforcement because of sanctuary rules in place. There is absolutely no way for Democrats to spin this, but in their minds they’re doing the right thing because the rights of gang member illegal immigrants are higher than the rights of American citizens.

ICE has rightly condemned the rules that allowed this and the law enforcement agencies that are failing to protect Americans.

ICE seeks custody of teen murder suspects for a second time

Following the recent arrest of two unlawfully present teens suspected in the violent murder of a young girl in Maryland, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) officers in Baltimore are again seeking to take custody of the illegal aliens through the ICE detainer process following the Prince George’s County Detention Center’s (PGCDC) failure to cooperate.

Josue Rafael Fuentes-Ponce and Joel Ernesto Escobar, both Salvadoran nationals, were previously arrested on May 11, 2018 when they were arrested by Prince George’s County Police Department (PGCPD) for attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, participation in gang activity, conspiracy to commit murder, attempted robbery, and other related charges. ICE officers lodged a detainer with PGCDC, however both were released on an unknown date and time without notification to ICE.

Sanctuary rules give the freedom of criminal illegal aliens higher priority than the safety of American citizens. Ariana Funes-Diaz would be alive today if her MS-13 gang member murderers weren’t protected by Democrats. It’s infuriating.

Shannon Grove on high speed rail The more we look at this project the more uncertainties come to lig

SACRAMENTO – Senate Republican Leader Shannon Grove (R-Bakersfield) issued the following statement after the Assembly Transportation Committee held an extensive hearing on the California High-Speed Rail project today.

“The more we look at this project, the more uncertainties come to light. Whether it is the loss of federal funds, the looming deadlines, or the failure to comply with the requirements of Proposition 1A, these hearings have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that the California High-Speed Rail Authority is incapable of building anything that resembles what they promised the voters.

“Sacramento Democrats can no longer pretend they don’t know this project is off the rails. It is a shameful waste of taxpayers’ dollars and we must stop throwing our hard-earned money down the drain. It is time to kill the big rail fail,” said Senate Republican Leader Shannon Grove.

California Senate approves bill to provide business licensing fee relief for disaster victims

California Senate approves bill to provide business licensing fee relief for disaster victims

SACRAMENTO – The state senate has unanimously passed SB 601, by Senator Mike Morrell (R-Rancho Cucamonga), to waive or reduce government licensing fees for businesses recovering after a disaster.

After events like wildfires, floods, and earthquakes, victims face many challenges including increasing expenses. For small businesses, recovery can also include having to replace paperwork such as state licenses needed to operate in California.

“State licensing fees can often be a hurdle as entrepreneurs begin their careers,” said Morrell. “For businesses that have already played by the rules and contributed to our economy, SB 601 helps them get back on their feet after a disaster. While we need licensing reforms and relief across the board, I am grateful to my senate colleagues for their support of this good government measure.”

In recent years, California has seen several of the most damaging and costly natural disasters in its history. The 2017 Tubbs Fire, Southern California mudslides, and 2018 Camp Fire combined have claimed over 100 lives, destroyed more than 25,000 structures, and impacted an estimated 381,784 businesses.

Morrell has led past efforts on licensing reform in California, including the authoring of SB 999 (2018) to repeal certain licensing requirements in the fields of barbering and cosmetology as well as the authoring of SB 1155 (2017) to waive initial licensing fees for veterans entering the civilian workforce.

The bill unanimously passed the senate and will next be considered in the State Assembly.
