By the way, if you don’t followNumbersUSA,you should because they do cover the often tedious goings-on on Capitol Hill. I’m posting this bit of news here because I want to refer to it in a post at RRW shortly.
Here is what Numbers reported in an e-mail last night. See why she pulled the funding measure.
Good news! House Democrats have pulled funding for the Department of Homeland Security from a spending bill. This is good news because Democrats on the House Appropriations Committee planned to use Homeland Security funding to impose extremist immigration provisions.
Reportedly, Democrats from vulnerable districts didn’t want to have to defend the extremist, immigration-related provisions contained in the bill.
I list those provisions below, so you can see just how extreme they are. These vulnerable Democrats from more moderate districts balked because they knew we would be hammering them if they went ahead!
…we saw that even she just might temper the radicalism of some of her more extreme colleagues.
Here are some of the worst provisions of the bill that was pulled from consideration:
1) Would have limited ICE detention beds to 10,000, compared to a recent high of 55,000.
2) Would have prohibited detention of families, all but guaranteeing their release and encouraging future surges of family units at the border.
3) Would have prohibited the removal of aliens who have been given Temporary Protected Status but have since lost it.
4) Would have exposed more blue-collar jobs to foreign worker competition and called for an increase in temporary work visas, despite the tens of millions of Americans looking for work.
5) Would have drastically cut funding for immigration enforcement, and prohibited reallocation of funding.
In essence, the bill would have made it take far longer to remove illegal aliens, but at the same time, it would gravely restrict holding them. In short, the bill would have required something close to open borders.
Politico, the Capitol Hill newspaper, quoted a congressional staffer explaining why the bill was pulled:
“Front-line members raised serious concerns that the Homeland bill was a tough vote in swing districts because of its progressive provisions. At the end of the day, front-liners are our majority makers and there is no reason to force them to take a tough vote.”
“I don’t want her remembered as the woman in the suitcase that was just thrown away.”
The other day I said I would post a few stories that have gone “down the memory hole” mostly because they don’t fit the media narrative when it comes to ‘new Americans.’
Do you remember this story from last summer when a former Tyson Foods meat plant worker, a Somali by the name of Mahamud Tooxoow Mahamed, was found to have kidnapped three little girls after their mother went missing?
I found only one story that was posted after the initial flurry of news about the discovery of Jessica McCormack’s body which had been crammed into a suitcase and flung into a ravine.
Mahamed is still a fugitive from justice.
If you read the whole long sad tale published in local media (it is over 2,400 words long), you will see that Jessica got mixed up with some scum who brought her life to an untimely end.
I’m posting the story, not so you can tsk! tsk! over her mixed up life, but because it goes against the narrative the politically correct want you to believe about refugees and other immigrants as supposedly salt-of-the-earth people just looking for a better life.
It is the kind of story that should be told as a warning to other young naive women, but it won’t be told in any big way because it depicts an African, a Muslim, as, frankly, a vile man that got through our supposed screening process coming in, and then got out of the country apparently just as easily.
Jessica McCormack’s murder doesn’t make any sense. The 25-year-old’s partially-clothed body was discovered in a suitcase near Noel in late July. She was identified through dental records. Since her murder three months ago, her friends continue to search for answers.
McCormack was a beautiful soul who brought people together, friends say. Life wasn’t easy for her, but she showed an unending love for all people, said her best friend, Megan Bailey.
“I don’t want her remembered as the woman in the suitcase that was just thrown away,” Bailey said, “but how she loved everyone. It didn’t matter what race, what religion, she freakin’ loved you.”
McCormack’s death has spurred her friends to fight for justice. They seek answers. They want to know why their beloved friend was taken, leaving behind three young daughters. Bailey said the pain of losing McCormack is still intense.
“It’s been three months that she’s been gone,” Bailey said. “It still hurts as much as the first day. I still wake up in the morning and think, ‘Maybe I’ll get a message from Jess today.'”
McCormack Goes Missing
Her best friend knew something was wrong right away. The two, who were soul sisters, had known each other for about three years. The two had no secrets.
McCormack and her children were over at Bailey’s house on July 14. McCormack played with Bailey’s children. When Bailey didn’t hear from McCormack on July 15, she became worried. “(But) murder wasn’t my first thought. I thought she needed to get away.”
McCormack had left for a few days in June, Bailey said. She was simply tired of all the fighting with Mahamud Tooxoow Mahamed, her husband, whom Bailey refers to as “Tito.”
Bailey said the two were not married by law but through their Muslim culture.
However, Bailey said McCormack and Ibraham Akfeen, who is the father of her youngest child, had planned to make a fresh start in St. Louis. [Honor killing?—ed]
Ongoing fighting and domestic disputes with Mahamed, however, colored McCormack’s world.
“She told me, ‘If I end up dead one day, Tito is going to be the reason,'” Bailey said.” She wanted to come visit. She was tired of all the fighting. It was an ongoing, everyday battle. Their relationship was very tumultuous. It was hardly ever good.”
Bailey encouraged her to break it off with Mahamed. The ups and downs of McCormack and Mahamed’s relationship took their toll.
Why didn’t she leave?
“She was scared,” Bailey said. “She wanted some sense of normalcy for her girls. She said, ‘I’m going to keep trying because there’s something good in him.'”
So far, charges have been filed against one man. Those charges only include kidnapping at this time.
Mahamed, 37, a Somali national, was charged in a criminal complaint filed Aug. 13 in the U.S. District Court in Springfield, Mo., according to information provided by the Justice Department. Mahamed is not in federal custody and is a fugitive from justice.
Mahamed is out of the country and was last known to be in the Mexico and Guatemala area, said McDonald County Sheriff Michael Hall. Mahamed recently posted on his Facebook account that he’s back in Somalia.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department have said they will not extradite a non-naturalized citizen, Hall said.
In September, Hall said Mahamed was a person of interest, due to the number of domestic violence calls involving the couple. In McDonald County, Mahamed also still faces two felony charges from 2017, against another woman in Noel. He is charged with one count of sodomy in the second degree and one charge of unlawful use of a weapon.
Lack of action by the Noel Marshal’s Office actually catapulted the situation into a completely different mode, Bailey said.
“The Noel Marshal’s Office did nothing,” Bailey said. “If they had been proactive, Jessica would still be here. I think they thought, ‘Jessica and Tito are fighting again.'”
Bailey said she believes Mahamed was helped by his family and his tribe.
“I think they all helped him get away.”
Her friends say that comments posted on social media tend to criticize McCormack for having multiple fathers for her three daughters. Others criticize her for being with a Somalian and being a Muslim.
“No matter what was going on in her life, she was always selfless and wanted to make sure others were OK before worrying about herself.”
Bailey said the young woman had planned to move on. The young Muslim woman, who had converted to that religion on her own accord, wanted to escape her own domestic situation.
“She was just done. She was starting to get her bearings. She was starting to ask questions about Christianity. She was trying to get her footing.”
In case you missed it, Tucker Carlson had a great opening monologue last night about how Google and Facebook are, more than ever, blocking your ability to see anything that goes against the Leftwing narrative about Donald Trump’s presidency and especially his handling of the Chinese Virus panic.
Normally I try not to post information that is widely available, but you need to see this (surprisingly as of this writing it has only 122 views).
I was especially interested in the discussion with Breitbart editor Alex Marlow that begins at the 9:40 mark where he explains how the tricky b******* at Google have limited Breibart’s reach.
And, I guess you have already seen how the Leftwing media has viciously attacked the African doctor speaking on the video that was taken down yesterday. Just a reminder that ALL Black Lives Do Not Matter! Clearly, she is one African immigrant the Left would love to deport!
And, one more thing. I have argued for years that you all should consider setting up blogs and websites of your own. You know if Biden wins that most alternative media will be wiped out, probably me too. But, I’m thinking if thousands of you are blogging, they might not be able to silence everyone.
How many stories have I posted here at Frauds and Crooksover the last year and a half about crooks, criminals and murderers that have completely disappeared from the news because the alleged criminal doesn’t fit the medias’ spin on who could possibly be a criminal and who can’t.
When Japanese-born (new American!) art professor Rie Hachiyanagi nearly beat to death a fellow female professor at the exclusive Massachusetts college Mt Holyoke, the story made an initial splash in local and state media (never made it to the big time that I ever saw). I reported it here in January.
But, when reader Cathy recently checked to see what ever happened to the story, she found only a piece at Town and Countrypublished in early April and now poof! the story is gone!
I’ve been thinking that I do need to go back and check on crimes I’ve previously posted and see just how many of those that do not fit the Left’s favorite propaganda have just disappeared as if they never happened.
Wikipedia has this description of the “memory hole,” a place where inconvenient or embarrassing information goes to die.
LOL! It is where Brennan, Clapper, Comey and Peter Strzok assumed their corrupt dealings would go once Hillary was elected.
A memory hole is any mechanism for the deliberate alteration or disappearance of inconvenient or embarrassing documents, photographs, transcripts or other records, such as from a website or other archive, particularly as part of an attempt to give the impression that something never happened. The concept was first popularized by George Orwell’s 1949 dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, where the Party’s Ministry of Truth systematically re-created all potentially embarrassing historical documents, in effect, re-writing all of history to match the often-changing state propaganda. These changes were complete and undetectable.
I’m making a new category entitled ‘Down the Memory Hole’ and this is my first installment….
Obsession and Assault: The Violent Crime That Rocked Mount Holyoke
In the early morning hours of Christmas Eve last year, the Massachusetts state police were dispatched to the home of a longtime professor at Mount Holyoke College. When the on-duty trooper arrived at the home in Leverett, not far from the college, he found a horrific scene: the professor alive but severely wounded, covered in her own blood. As details of the night began to leak out in the weeks that followed, students returned to campus, but without the feeling of lightness and possibility that normally accompanies a new semester at one of America’s prettiest and most prestigious schools.
Instead, there was an almost palpable feeling that something was not right here, and perhaps hasn’t been for some time. Because there was a single fact about the incident that was now widely known: The person charged with committing the violence was another one of their beloved professors.
By March, Rie Hachiyanagi, 48, had been sitting in a cell at the Franklin County House of Correction for months, having been denied bail in late February.
Mount Holyoke quickly distanced itself from Hachiyanagi, emphasizing that the attack occurred during winter recess and off campus, and that the alleged perpetrator has been placed on administrative leave and is banned from campus. The college produced no representatives to speak about Hachiyanagi. There seemed to be a hope that if no one uttered her name she would vanish that much sooner—a ghastly figment of the past.
Judge Mark D. Mason decided to hold Hachiyanagi without bail, and she will await trial from the county jail. Her next court date, a pretrial conference, is scheduled for April 22.
