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

Three juveniles in Maryland are being charged as adults for the murder of a 14-year-old girl. According to police, she was killed with baseball bats and a machete before her body was dumped in a creek.

Josue Fuentes-Ponce, 16, Joel Escobar, 17, and Cynthia Hernandez-Nucamendi, 14, have been charged with the murder of Ariana Funes-Diaz. Police are also seeking a fourth suspect.

According to Fox News, the victim was likely going to report a crime the group had committed the day before she was murdered.

She and the three murder suspects on April 17 robbed a man who was snatched off the street in Washington and taken to an abandoned house, police said.

The next day, Funes-Diaz was driven to a wooded area and killed, Reilly said.

Opinion

It’s important to understand the context here. This isn’t violence being perpetrated between rival gangs. This is a murderous reaction to someone who was part of the MS-13 lifestyle, who allegedly participated in a crime the day before. This is important because those who say this type of violence is nothing new aren’t really paying attention.

Gang violence is becoming more gruesome and the criminals themselves are younger than the “good ol’ days” when much violence happened between rival gangs and was perpetrated mostly by adults. These children, the ones who are often being protected as DREAMers because of their age, are not represented by the feel-good leftist media for what they are. Does that mean all DREAMers are bad? Of course not. But hearing it from the press and the Democrats, one might believe all DREAMers are good.

The reality is this: many of the people coming across the border are doing so because they can live their lives of crime with less of a chance of being caught. In fact, many of them receive protection from Democrats in the form of sanctuary cities and welfare intended to help American citizens who need a break.

We, as a nation, are playing the fool in the face of such clear indicators about the nature of the problem at the southern border.

Quote

“Consistently what we’ve seen with cases involving MS-13 is violence that’s disturbing.” – Maj. Brian Reilly

Final Thoughts

As long as the left refuses to acknowledge the gang violence that is directly fueled by illegal immigration across our southern border, these heinous acts of violence will continue. This isn’t just about migrants. It’s about violence criminals.

Jeffrey Epstein’s ties to Bill Clinton

Jeffrey Epsteins ties to Bill Clinton

Powerful men across the country and around the world are sweating over child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein’s arrest. He may turn on them, cutting a deal to reveal all the dirty secrets the billionaire may hold. We don’t know a lot about who could be involved, but there’s someone who seems to be most closely attached to him: President Bill Clinton.

One wouldn’t know this based solely on the way mainstream media has been covering it. The loose associations between Epstein and President Trump have been more of the focus. Anything they can do to attach the President to the pedophile is fair game.

But don’t expect them to ignore Clinton if Epstein implicates him. They have no allegiance to the former president. If anything, they would love to roast Clinton to prove they’re fair and balanced. Nevertheless, the connections are worth noting.

This comprehensive look at Clinton’s ties to the criminal billionaire by Gina Shakespeare at The Epoch Times breaks down all the connections and comes to the only logical conclusion: Slick Willy is very nervous right now.

ICE raids should be unannounced, widespread, and ongoing

ICE raids should be unannounced widespread and ongoing

Today was ICE raid day in nine cities across the country. I shouldn’t know that. You shouldn’t either. Most importantly, illegal immigrants with active deportation orders shouldn’t know it, nor should the Democrats and progressive activists working to thwart the efforts of ICE.

When the dust settles, I can almost guarantee the “millions” of deportations promised by the President last month will not be achieved. In fact, it’s unlikely this batch of raids will even reach quadruple digits. I wouldn’t be shocked if the number of illegal immigrants captured on Sunday doesn’t break into triple digits.

Unless there’s some sort of political 4D chess being played here, this official and well-publicized beginning of ICE raids will prove to be fruitless. The reasons are obvious: You don’t announce when or where they’re going to happen. Moreover, you don’t declare when they stopped. In fact, they should never stop.

President Obama was able to deport three million illegal immigrants, all the while being a reluctant executive of the team tasked with enforcing the law. He half-heartedly went after illegal immigrants through ICE and deported more than any president in history. Why, then, is the Trump administration missing the mark so often? Because they’re playing politics, though I’m not sure what that particular game may be.

I’ve tried to read through the 4D chess explanations, most of which center around trying to either pressure Democrats to act (they won’t) or get the media to blame Democrats for failures (they won’t). The only conclusion I can come to is there are too many illogical voices chirping about in the President’s ear because I can’t imagine he would willingly play this extremely important hand the way it’s being played without bad advice pouring in.

Here’s how ICE raids should happen:

  1. Don’t announce them. When the last round of ICE raids were cancelled following a leak to the Washington Post of when and where they would take place, I assumed there was someone in the White House acting against the President’ wishes. But it seems that happened again, but this time there were no delays and all reports are saying the raids are underway with limited success.
  2. Don’t limit it to certain cities. Why are only nine cities being targeted? More importantly, how do we know about which cities are being hit? It’s clear there are many cities who have expressed an unwillingness to help, so including them on a list does nothing the benefit ICE. If we really want to enforce removal orders, we let the evidence of concentrations of illegal immigrants guide us, which is why these nine cities were picked.
  3. Don’t stop. When this batch of ICE raids are over, we can assume all illegal immigrants with removal orders have been caught, right? No, of course not. Forget setting timelines. The raids should continue until the job is done or resources have been depleted.

And therein lies the real problem here. The reason a particular date was selected along with the nine cities being targeted is because resources are not unlimited. It’s unfortunate that law enforcement agencies like ICE must pick and choose where and when to do raids based upon available budget, but this is the real world and government actions always come at a price.

It’s good that focus has been placed on removal of illegal immigrants set for deportation. It sends a message to Central America that we’re willing to enforce our laws. But next time, let’s not announce the raids. Just raid and deport. Done.

Let’s have that ‘conversation’ about guns and why we’re never giving them up

Lets have that conversation about guns and why were never giving them up

#GunPrideMonth is the perfect time for a calm, rational discussion about the true causes of violence.

Our friends on the national socialist Left love to bring up the issue of guns in the context of a ‘serious crisis’. Tying to make it seem as Corey Booker falsely claims that there is a mass shooting every day. Well, its been several days since one of those occurrences, so that is clearly a lie. Even the Washington Post has made it clear that gun homicides have dropped substantially over the past 25 years in this article: Most Americans incorrectly think gun-murder rates have become worse, not better.

However, for the Left they have convince themselves of the righteousness of their causes, so making something up here or lying there is perfectly acceptable to them, never mind that reality shows them to be complete frauds, ‘in the aggregate’.

At least it used to be that way. Now the Liberty Grabber Left has come out of the authoritarian closet with a full court press for socialism and gun confiscation [funny how those two things go hand in hand?]. At this point in time, it’s a case where they haven’t stopped complaining about guns, despite the violence rationale dropping out of the news.

It’s time for a calm and rational conversation about the basic human right of self-defense.

The Liberty grabbers are at a decided disadvantage in having these discussions in a relatively calm environment. It always seems to work best for them when emotions run high and they can run around with the hair on fire screaming ‘we have to do something –anything – about guns, now before we rationally think about it too much’. Well, they usually don’t add that last part, thinking is the last thing they want anyone to do.

The fact is a research study from Northeastern University demonstrated that: Schools are safer than they were in the 90s, and school shootings are not more common than they used to be.  Facts like that don’t help the Liberty Grabber Left in their gun confiscation quest, so such things are ignored. It’s better for them to engage in their usual routine of making things up and repeating them ad nauseam until they are believed as the truth, thanks to the admonitions of socialist luminaries Hitler a Lenin.

A discussion on the underlying causes of violence instead of inanimate objects.

We’ll begin with a video from a year ago from the Warrior Poet Society on Why Gun Control is NOT about GUNS:

[Note that even he mistakenly states that shootings are getting worse.]

He points out that the worse thing we could do is establish so-called ‘Gun-Free’ zones where mass murderers can have free reign. Most mass shootings since 1950 have taken place in ‘Gun-Free’ zones.

This leads to the larger point that even if the Liberty Grabbers got their wish and confiscated every gun from the innocent, the criminals and the government would still have them to prey on people.

Still further, making the point, even if those of evil intent didn’t have guns, they could use other means: explosives, poisons, edged weapons, vehicles..

He makes the last point that this is a recent phenomenon, unheard of 50 or so years ago. This is partly due to the glamorization of these killers in the media.

One change has been in the culture and in our society and the fact that many of these killers have grown up in fatherless homes. An article from last February pointed out that Of the 27 Deadliest Mass Shooters, 26 of Them Had One Thing in Common: fatherlessness.

The Takeaway.

The Liberty Grabber Left would like to have a ‘Conversation’ about gun confiscation. We of the Pro-Liberty Right want to Keep our freedom. Despite the lies of the Left, guns aren’t a growing epidemic. But they do stand in the way of the Socialist-Left attaining their desired authoritarian power. Thus they keep on bleating about the ‘problem’ even though its diminishing in intensity.

The intent here is to have that ‘conversation’ and prove that it’s NOT a question of guns, but of the breakdown in our culture induced by the Left. They would prefer it to be about guns, and how fast and how soon they will be confiscated.
