Australia: Girls as young as 9 trafficked into forced marriages

More than 50 girls in New South Wales were trafficked into forced marriages to older men, with some ‘brides’ being as young as nine years old.

These girls are children in need of protection, but the “Islamophobia” ploy has become yet another weapon to terrorize infidels into immobility. The West in effect is being turned into a two-tier system: one law for Westerners and another for Muslims.

Denmark has been forced to allow ‘wives’ as young as 14 to be reunited with their ‘husbands’ after authorities deciding that upholding child protection laws breached migrants’ human rights.

The West has been forced into silence through lawfare, through false accusations about “Islamophobia,” while the most sinister abuses continue to be perpetrated against human beings, whose human rights are apparently trumped by those of their abusers.

Family and Community Services Minister Pru Goward…. said ‘the community’ does know that child brides do exist, but they choose to turn the other cheek, and ignore it

Back in June, Muslim cleric Ibrahim Omerdic was “convicted for marrying a child bride to a much older man under laws prohibiting forced marriage in Melbourne, Australia”; but that was only one case prosecuted. The Islamic Council of Victoria conceded that “marriage at a younger age is permitted in other countries and cultures,” but not in Australia, while “the Victorian Board of Imams disowned Omerdic” for not observing the laws of Australia.

Does anyone spot a problem with the mainstream Islamic Council and Victorian Board of Imams? Rather than condemn the abhorrent abuse of young girls, the primary concern they expressed was about the laws of Australia. They didn’t say it was warped or wrong to marry these young girls to older men, as it is in accordance with the Hadith and Islamic tradition.

The number of girls seeking help from the UK’s National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) for fear of being trafficked into a forced marriage is at a record high

These cases constitute the rape of underage, defenseless, voiceless girls. Yet few care enough about these innocent girls to intervene on their behalf, for fear of bring branded racist. Instead, last December, the South Australia state government actually blocked a bill to prevent forced child marriages, presumably so as not to offend Muslims who support this Islamic tradition.

“Girls as Young as Nine Are Trafficked into Forced Marriages in Australia”, by Victoria Friedman, Breitbart, September 13, 2017:

More than 50 girls in New South Wales were trafficked into forced marriages to older men, with some ‘brides’ being as young as nine years old.

Australia’s Seven News obtained documents from the Australian Federal Police on child marriage in the country. In just two years, a total of 57 children were victims of forced marriage in Australia, with almost all, 51, being from the Sydney area.

The AFP documents included: references to an email from a girl who wrote she was being held against her will and being forced to marry; a situation report with allegations of a forced marriage at the end of the school year; and a human trafficking referral of a girl who was forced to travel outside of Australia and then exploited.

Family and Community Services Minister Pru Goward said that children were under “enormous pressure” from their parents to marry. The minister said ‘the community’ “does know” that child brides do exist, but they choose to “turn the other cheek”, and ignore it.

Ms. Goward urged friends and relatives of children at risk of being trafficked or forced into marriage to come forward and to tell the children they do not have to marry, otherwise “we’ll end up with a continuation of forced marriages”.

Officials are left helpless to save the children once they leave the country, with documents noting the case of two young sisters from the Sydney suburb of Liverpool who were trafficked overseas for marriage. The AFP admitted all they could do was wait to see if the girls came back to Australia…..

A video of the ceremony shows the cleric instructing the girl that “as a wife, you have a duty to obey your husband”. The groom, meanwhile, is advised of his obligation to provide the minor with a “sexual education”.

The number of girls seeking help from the UK’s National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) for fear of being trafficked into a forced marriage is at a record high, with figures showing that as of the end of 2016, there has been just one conviction for child marriage in Britain.

Following the migrant crisis on the continent, the number of Muslim child brides in Germany’s capital, Berlin, is on the rise, and in Scandinavia, child ‘wives’ are being ‘tolerated‘ in migrant centres in Norway, Denmark, and Sweden.

Denmark has been forced to allow ‘wives’ as young as 14 to be reunited with their ‘husbands’ after authorities deciding that upholding child protection laws breached migrants’ human rights.

Man Raped His 15-Year-Old Stepdaughter and Took Her to Planned Parenthood for an Abortion

Yet more proof that abortion often is not a woman’s choice, a Utah man recently was accused of raping his step-daughter and taking her to Planned Parenthood for an abortion to cover up his abuse.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports the man, 34, of Salt Lake City, Utah, allegedly raped his 15-year-old step-daughter numerous times beginning in September 2016. The man’s name is not listed in reports, likely to protect his alleged victim’s identity.

Police said the man sent messages to the girl on Facebook to demand that she meet him. According to police, he would tell the girl to tell her mother that she was going to the library, and then he would take her to his home and rape her.

Here’s more from the report:

The teen told police that if she didn’t agree to have sex with the man, he would threaten to hurt her or her family. When he found out the girl was pregnant, the man took the girl to three Planned Parenthood locations to get an abortion, the teen said.

Utah law requires a biological parent or guardian sign off on abortions for minors, and when the centers denied him, the teen said he gave her a drink to induce a miscarriage.

The girl’s mother found a plastic bottle of the liquid mixture in the teen’s room and contacted police, telling them she suspected her daughter had been raped, according to court documents.

Police said the man admitted to having sex with the girl “once or twice a month for a year,” and giving her an abortion-inducing concoction. Reports do not indicate what was in the concoction or if it succeeded in killing her unborn baby.

According to police, the man “provided false information” to them to try to hide his actions.

He is charged with 12 counts of rape.

Most Americans probably do not realize how frequently women, especially victims of sexual abuse, are pressured to abort their unborn babies. Many face threats and sometimes physical violence if they refuse to give into their abuser’s demands.

Last week, LifeNews reported a New Zealand man also faces charges after he allegedly physically and sexually abused his daughter with special needs for nearly a decade. Police discovered the alleged abuse when the daughter went to a local hospital for an abortion.

In the spring, authorities also charged a Wisconsin man on numerous counts after he allegedly raped a young girl and then tried to abort her unborn baby himself.

These are just a small sample of the cases LifeNews has reported recently involving abuse and abortion.

Sexual abuse and abortion often are connected. A 2014 study published in PLOS Medicine found that 25 percent of women who had abortions faced some sort of abuse beforehand, either physical, sexual or emotional.

Sometimes abusers use abortions to cover up their crimes, making unborn babies second victims in a number of sexual abuse cases.

In an Ohio case, a 22-year-old soccer coach was convicted of sexual assault of a 14-year-old girl on his team, LifeNews reported. According to reports, he statutorily raped the girl; and when she became pregnant, he took her to Planned Parenthood to abort their unborn baby and cover up what he had done. The Ohio Planned Parenthood also faced a lawsuit for failing to report the sexual abuse of the young girl.

In an Arizona case, officials said another Planned Parenthood center failed to provide the proper report to authorities about a victim of a young man accused of being a serial rapist. Not only did Planned Parenthood fail to report the rape but, in so doing, it allowed the rapist to rape 18 or more teenage girls, authorities said, making it so the abortion company is partially responsible for victimizing them as well.

Research indicates human trafficking victims often are forced or coerced into aborting their unborn babies. A survey by the U.S. Department of State found that 55 percent of sex trafficking victims had at least one abortion, with 30 percent having multiple abortions. More than half said they did not choose to abort their unborn child; their traffickers ordered them to, according to the survey.

Many sexual abuse victims who become pregnant say the abortion only added to their trauma, according to research by the Elliot Institute.

In 2015, a sexual abuse victim told a British court that her abuser forced her to abort her unborn baby. While the woman admitted that she had no desire to be a mother, she said she would not have aborted her baby – “because I didn’t want to go through all that.”

Racism And Guns: Why The Left Keeps Painting Gun Owners As Racist

Gun owners get an awful rap in the modern media. While it’s fine for a Hollywood action hero to be loaded down with guns, the average citizen who does so is a ticking time bomb in their world. It’s worse with the news media, which routinely paints gun owners as being every kind of bigot imaginable. Recently, Bearing Arms has run two stories where this has come up. The first one, anti-gunners were trying to paint pro-gun folks as racists. The second, run just this weekend, liberal gun folks talked about the NRA’s supposedly “racist” policies.

Now, we all know this isn’t true. Gun owners are incredibly open to new folks, regardless of ethnicity. We love seeing new people shoot. Race is irrelevant for the vast majority of us.

I’m not saying there are no racist gun owners because we’re not some monolithic group, but you’ll have a far easier time finding racists at the Democratic National Convention than at the NRA’s annual meeting.

And that, my friends, is why the left tries to paint gun owners as the racists.

By now, many pro-Second Amendment advocates and activists understand the racist roots of gun control in this country. Even the more mainstream political site, The Hill, understands it.

One month after the Confederate surrender in 1865, Frederick Douglass urged federal action to stop state and local infringement of the right to arms. Until this was accomplished, Douglass argued, “the work of the abolitionists is not finished.”

Indeed, it was not. As the Special Report of the Paris Anti-Slavery Conference of 1867 found, freedmen in some southern states “were forbidden to own or bear firearms, and thus were rendered defenseless against assault.” Thus, white supremacists could continue to control freedmen through threat of violence.

Congress demolished these racist laws. The Freedmen’s Bureau Bill of 1865Civil Rights Act of 1866, and Civil Rights Act of 1870 each guaranteed all persons equal rights of self-defense. Most importantly, the 14th Amendment, ratified in 1868, made the Second Amendment applicable to the states.

Because of the 14th Amendment, gun control laws now had to be racially neutral. But states quickly learned to draft neutrally-worded laws for discriminatory application. Tennessee and Arkansas prohibited handguns that freedmen could afford, while allowing expensive “Army & Navy” handguns, which ex-Confederate officers already owned.

The South Carolina law against concealed carry put blacks in chain gangs, but whites only paid a small fine, if anything. In the early 20th century, such laws began to spread beyond the ex-Confederacy. An Ohio Supreme Court Justice acknowledged that such statutes reflected “a decisive purpose to entirely disarm the Negro.”

 

The anti-gun left paints gun owners in general, and the NRA in particular, as racist because they don’t want anyone to see their own racist past. They’re the mean kid in school who picks on everyone so nobody will look too closely at their own flaws.

Unfortunately, most folks who don’t know the gun culture don’t realize that no, we’re not a bunch of racist rednecks. They don’t understand that we’re just good folks who want to protect ourselves and our families.

They might know an individual gun owner or two who they don’t think of a racist, but the media paints a picture that makes it easy for the average American to believe those are the exception, not the rule. The anti-gun left likes it that way because it makes it easier to disarm law-abiding gun owners if the rank and file voter thinks we’re all hood-wearing Klansmen.

Meanwhile, they hide the racism in their past all while stilltrying to keep inner city blacks from obtaining weapons to protect themselves.

They’ll paint us a racist because they don’t want anyone to see their own hoods.

What You Can’t Say Anymore: In US Gov’t

A top official at the National Security Council (NSC) was fired for a memo he wrote warning about the dangers of radical Islam and its alliance with the radical left.

Rich Higgins, who was formerly with the Pentagon, worked as the director of strategic planning for the NSC until his untimely departure.

Part of his lengthy memo stated:

“Globalists and Islamists recognize that for their visions to succeed, America, both as an ideal and as a national and political identity, must be destroyed…Islamists ally with cultural Marxists…[but] Islamists will co-opt the movement in its entirety…

“Because the left is aligned with Islamist organizations at local, national, and international levels, recognition should be given to the fact that they seamlessly interoperate through coordinated synchronized interactive narratives…

“These attack narratives are pervasive, full spectrum, and institutionalized at all levels. They operate in social media, television, the 24-hour news cycle in all media and are entrenched at the upper levels of the bureaucracies.”

The Atlantic reported Higgins also “pushed for declassification of documents having to do with radical Islam and Iran,” citing a source close to the White House.

One such document, called the “Presidential Study Directive,” allegedly warned in 2010 about the upcoming Arab Spring and detailed the Obama Administration’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist organizations.

Lamenting the lack of education given to government officials about radical Islam, Higgins previously wrote, “National Security officials are prohibited from developing a factual understanding of Islamic threat doctrines, preferring instead to depend upon 5th column Muslim Brotherhood cultural advisors.”

Higgins’ firing is consistent with the beliefs espoused by General H.R. McMaster, who replaced Trump’s original appointee, General Mike Flynn, as head of the NSC.

McMaster believes the “Islamic State is not Islamic,” going so far as to describe jihadists as “really irreligious organizations.” As did former president Obama, he opposes use of any language that connects Islam to terrorism.

McMaster also rejects the notion that jihadists are motivated by religious ideology. Instead, he says they are motivated by “fear,” a “sense of honor” and their “interests,” which he describes as the roots of human conflict for thousands of years. He believes U.S. policy must be based on “understanding those human dimensions.”

McMaster’s influence can be seen in recent speeches by the president, vice president and secretary of defense on the anniversary of 9/11. In a reversal from his campaign rhetoric, none of those addresses mentioned radical Islam.

Yet, in his acceptance speech at the Republican convention, Trump mentioned the Islamic basis of the jihadist threat four times. Similarly, during the campaign itself, Trump regularly attacked Hillary Clinton for declining to use the term “radical Islam.”

Senators Diane Feinstein and Dick Durbin

On September 6, 2017, two radical Leftist Democratic senators established a religious test for the confirmation of a Circuit Court of Appeals Judge nominee in absolute violation of the Constitution of the United States, Article VI, Clause 3. This passage explicitly states, “…no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.” 

 

 

 

Where is the outrage?

How would these radical Leftist Democrats react if President John F. Kennedy was subjected to such a religious test?

These two senators violated their oath of office “..to support and defend the Constitution…” They must be held accountable for their actions and at the very least be censured.

Court Stops Planned Parenthood From Opening Three New Abortion Centers

Late Friday, the full Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals stayed a preliminary injunction issued by a lower court that had blocked enforcement of existing Missouri abortion safety laws requiring abortionists to maintain hospital privileges within 30 miles of the place where they conduct abortions.

It is now expected that no facility license will be issued to three Missouri Planned Parenthood offices that applied for licensing to conduct abortions under the injunction. Those offices are in Columbia, Springfield, and Joplin.

“I applaud the Eighth Circuit’s decision,” Attorney General Josh Hawley stated in an e-mail to news outlets. “The health and safety of Missouri women will now be protected while the court considers the merit of our appeal.”

Friday’s stay is a temporary one pending the outcome of the state’s appeal of the preliminary injunction, which will now be heard before the full Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals. It came just days after another ruling that allowed the state to seek the stay.

Missouri pro-life activists were equally thrilled about the ruling that will keep abortions out of the three communities, which they consider an answer to prayers.

The new ruling came just days before the Planned Parenthood office in Columbia was expected to be licensed for surgical and medication abortions.

None of the three Planned Parenthood facilities are in compliance with the hospital privilege rule or the facility requirements of the existing law.

“We are very grateful for the last-minute reprieve from the Eighth Circuit that allows the Department of Health to fulfill its duty to protect the public,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “Licensing these substandard facilities for abortions would have been a grave mistake that would have cost the lives of babies, and endangered their mothers.”

However, the stay does not affect the newly licensed Planned Parenthood facility in Kansas City, which plans to dispense abortion pills as early as next week.

“Missouri also has a 72 hour waiting period, so even though Planned Parenthood says they will begin abortions on Monday, I believe they can really only begin the process of informed consent on Monday,” said Newman. “I encourage pro-life supporters in the Kansas City area to maintain a steady presence at that facility starting early Monday. There will still be time to save lives.”

9/11 jihadi to US in just-released footage: “Your blood is delicious for us and your meat cheap”

with one comment

Jihad Watch
September 11, 2017

“We have resolved to tread upon your lands and embrace the maidens of paradise on your soil.”

That means that al-Qaeda was planning to mount jihad suicide attacks on U.S. soil, to gain the Qur’an’s promise of Paradise to those who “kill and are killed” for Allah (Qur’an 9:111). That was not an empty boast, as al-Qaeda has been involved in some of the jihad plots we have seen in the U.S. since 9/11.

“Previously Unseen 9/11 Hijacker Warning: ‘Your Blood is Delicious for Us and Your Meat Cheap,’” by Bridget Johnson, PJ Media, September 11, 2017:

Al-Qaeda marked the 16th anniversary of 9/11 by releasing previously unseen footage of Mohand al-Shehri, one of the hijackers aboard United Airlines Flight 175 that crashed into the South Tower of the World Trade Center, noting that the terrorists have “longed for your beautiful lands” and find the blood of Americans “delicious.”

Al-Shehri, 22, was a Saudi who trained in Chechnya and Afghanistan months before being granted a student visa to the United States. He arrived in the U.S. four months before the attacks and trained on a flight simulator in Vero Beach, Fla.

According to the video, al-Shehri shot the statement April 17, 2001, before he arrived in the United States that May….

It begins with a few minutes of archive footage of late al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden before moving on to al-Shehri reading his statement. “The tyrants have led the ummah [Muslim community] to this abyss. Filth and immorality have become widespread and has deprived the hearts of sobriety and filled them with lowliness,” he said.

“So accompany me in this last will as I address you from the deck of my ship as to guide you to the shores of salvation. Perhaps your boat will hear my words of inspiration and rock with enthusiasm and you would stop in your way and change course to head for the gardens of eternity. Allah will surely replace those who have chosen to sit back and refrain from the obligation of jihad with others who will rise and act on the basis of the Islamic creed, be willing to pay the price of honor and overcome the enemies of Allah,” he continued. “Those who have chosen to sit back will then be left worthless, and their reckoning will neither be delayed nor hastened, for Allah is all-powerful and nothing can stop him from replacing you with another people.”…

Al-Shehri vowed that “this ummah has been molded by the Quran and the sword, and neither of them can be separated from the other,” and decried the “Judaization of Palestine.”

“If we abandon this cause, do not wake up from our slumber and do not dedicate to this cause except for the little spare time that we have, the Arabian Peninsula itself will become a killing ground of Muslims, just like Palestine,” he said, stressing that jihadists need to “defeat America and the Cross.”

“America, where shall you escape? The sea is behind you, we are in front of you, and there is no way out. If you accept Islam, you shall be safe and Allah will give you your reward and the reward of those after you, or else just wait for us. With the permission of Allah, we are coming to sever your heads, rip apart your bellies and make you fall over yourselves. You will be looking for rescue and there will be no way out. There will be no solution for you except death and then even more death,” he continued.

“We have longed for your beautiful lands, for its streams and trees, palaces and lakes. We have resolved to tread upon your lands and embrace the maidens of paradise on your soil. Your blood is delicious for us and your meat cheap. We are thirsty and nothing shall quench this thirst except your blood, nothing shall satiate our hunger except your meat. There is no stopping what has been decreed by Allah.”

Al-Shehri warned that terrorists would be sending America “the most expensive of gifts,” consisting of “coffins followed by coffins, bodies followed by bodies.”…

Pro-Life Speaker Ben Shapiro Answers Pro-Abortion Student’s Question With an “Epic Takedown”

Popular conservative author and speaker Ben Shapiro continued to impress his audience Thursday at UC Berkeley when he rapidly refuted a young man’s abortion arguments.

Shapiro’s speech at the liberal California university drew massive media attention because of the violent protests that have broken out on campus during past conservative speakers’ talks. The university and local police increased security, and several people were arrested Thursday.

Inside the sold-out auditorium, Shapiro received a huge applause when he quickly destroyed a young man’s arguments in favor of first-trimester abortions. A video of the exchange received a lot of attention Friday, and some described Shapiro’s argument as an “epic takedown” of abortion.

During the question and answer period Thursday, a young man asked Shapiro why he believes abortion is wrong.

“Why do you think a first-trimester fetus has human value?” the young man asked, explaining that he believes sentience is what makes humans valuable.

“Ok, so when you’re asleep, can I stab you?” Shapiro asked. The young man said no.

“Ok, if you are in a coma from which you may awake, can I stab you?” Shapiro continued.

Again, the young man said no. “But that’s still potential sentience!” he added.

“Do you know what else has potential sentience? Being a fetus,” Shapiro said, followed by a massive applause.

 

 

NRA Takes WaPo Writer to the Woodshed Over ‘Fake News’ Story on the SHARE Act

with one comment

If you just so happen to find yourself perusing through the Washington Post’s opinion section, you might stumble upon this gem: “The NRA’s idea of recreation: Assault rifles, armor-piercing bullets and silencers.”

As you’d expect based on the snide headline, the piece tears into the NRA for supporting sport-shooting. More specifically, the author takes issues with the NRA’s backing of the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act of 2017, also known as the SHARE Act, which was recently revived by the House.

In fact, the (bipartisan) bill was advanced by the House Committee on Natural Resources on Wednesday. According to the committee, the act “expands opportunities for hunting, fishing, and recreational shooting; increases safety and hearing protection for sportsmen and women; and protects Second Amendment rights.”

Upon passage out of the committee, Chairman Rob Bishop (R-UT) said, “The SHARE Act removes bureaucratic roadblocks that inhibit Americans’ access to outdoor sporting activities on federal lands and reigns in federal encroachment on Second Amendment rights. Members also adopted important amendments that improve upon this package, including provisions to address cumbersome permitting processes for guides and outfitters, which will result in more jobs and more Americans recreating outdoors. I look forward to advancing this package through the House and working with our Senate colleagues on a final bill that can be signed into law.”  

However, in the eyes of the Washington Post, if the bill is passed, it means  hunters will soon be able to “load their automatic weapons with armor-piercing bullets, strap on silencers, head off to the picnic grounds on nearby public lakes — and start shooting.”

Thankfully, the NRA wasn’t going to let this one go. It decided the best way to address this poorly-researched, fear-mongering article would be with, well, facts (via the NRA Blog):

Washington Post Fake News:

Under the Share Act, hunters “will load their automatic weapons with armor-piercing bullets, strap on silencers, head off to the picnic grounds on nearby public lakes — and start shooting.”

The Facts:

Automatic Weapons

It is against the law in every state to hunt with fully automatic firearms. Such weapons are highly restricted and very rare due to the 1986 ban on their manufacture or importation.  The SHARE Act doesn’t change this.

“Armor piercing bullets”

All shotgun and rifle ammunition is so-called armor piercing. Congress never intended to place restrictions on all shotgun and rifle ammunition. The SHARE Act simply clarifies congressional intent and limits interpretations that are contrary to that.

Picnic grounds and public lakes

Laws restrict hunting and shooting to designated areas on public lands. You can’t just go to any casual “picnic ground” and “start shooting.”

Washington Post Fake News:

The SHARE Act would allow people to “bring assault guns and other weapons through jurisdictions where they are banned.”

The Facts:

Since 1986, federal law has allowed a person in lawful possession of any firearm to transport it from any place where they can lawfully possess a firearm to any other place where they can lawfully possess the firearm. But prosecutors in anti-gun states such as New York and New Jersey have ignored this federal law, and arrested individuals who were lawfully travelling with firearms.  The SHARE Act would put a stop to that.

Washington Post Fake News:

The SHARE Act would “[r]oll back decades-old regulations on the use of silencers.
The Facts:

The SHARE Act would simply make it easier for law-abiding gun owners to protect their hearing with suppressors, sometimes called silencers in Hollywood movies. Current federal law requires registration, the paying of a $200 tax, and up to a 12 month wait to acquire a firearm suppressor. The SHARE Act would replace that antiquated 1934 system with the modern NICS system used for acquiring firearms in the United States.

According to the Center for Disease Control,“The only potentially effective noise control method to reduce students’ or instructors’ noise exposure from gunfire is through the use of noise suppressors that can be attached to the end of the gun barrel.”  The SHARE Act recognizes that we must give law-abiding sportsmen and women greater options for protecting their hearing.

Washington Post Fake News:

The SHARE Act would: “Eas[e] importation of foreign-made assault rifles.”

The Facts:

Due to a quirk in federal firearms import law, firearms that are perfectly legal to manufacture, acquire, and possess in the United States are nonetheless prohibited from importation.  The SHARE Act would simply allow for the importation of firearms that are already legal within the United States.

Washington Post Fake News:

The SHARE Act would “[protect] the practice of baiting birds with grain as they migrate and then [mow] them down.

The Facts:

Currently, if a person happens to hunt migratory game birds near a cornfield, they could be cited for “baiting” the animals.  This law leaves hunters open to fines whenever hunting near any agricultural operations. The SHARE Act would clarify that such activities are only unlawful where the agricultural operations are manipulated in some way to entice the game birds into the area.

Well done, NRA, for putting this WaPo columnist in his place.
