Fake News Covers for Migrant Crimes

I’ve stolen the first part of a headline at Big League Politics for my headline because it can’t be said often enough!
Yesterday after I wrote the post about the gruesome murder of Mackenzie Lueck in Utah and said again that the media is (I believe purposefully) leaving out important facts when covering crime news so that they don’t step on their message that migrants*** are just good folks, just like us, looking for a better life.

Georgia illegals
The Georgian “choir-boys”, oops Guatemalans!

The great danger is that in so doing they have created a whole generation of Mackenzie Lueck’s, living in la-la land, who have no discernment and frankly cannot see that some migrants are monsters.
Thanks to reader Cathy for sending this news about a couple of those monsters being protected by the media in Georgia because it gives me an opportunity to once again repeat the message and give you more news items sent to me over the last week.
When I began writing ‘Frauds and Crooks’ in January, I told you that the Leftists (Progressives, or whatever you call them) will be telling heartwarming stories about migrants (LOL! their “new Americans”) in the run-up to the 2020 Presidential race, so it is very important that you tell the stories about the monsters in order to give some balance to their news!

Federal Trade Commission Reports Top Frauds for 2018

This isn’t a juicy frauds and crooks story like some I’ve reported lately, but it is a useful one sent to me by a reader.
FTC logo
The FTC last week reported a summary of what kinds of consumer frauds were trending and tells us which states are the most fraud-ridden (or at least the states where in 2018 people reported that they had been defrauded).
And get this…..

There was a 38% jump in the amount of money lost to fraud in 2018 over 2017, says the FTC!

Learn which states are the worst for consumer fraud and where to report this type of fraud!

Nevada Update: Murder charges filed against Wilber Ernesto Martinez-Guzman

Editor:  I actually started this post yesterday BEFORE the murder charges were filed, but never got it posted. 
This morning I see the charges have now been filed, and, believe it or not, CNN is running the story with this headline.  See here.  (Too funny, that they have to put Trump in the headline! What the heck will they do when he is no longer President!)

Undocumented immigrant cited by Trump charged with four murders

This is the post I wrote yesterday:
nevada killerI was planning to tell you about this news from last week where the Reno Gazette Journal interviewed Wilber (sometimes spelled Wilbur) Marinez-Guzman’s friends who painted a sympathetic picture of the 19-year-old illegal alien from El Salvador, when I saw this story about the murders at CNN.
Wow! CNN reported at least this much!  However, interesting that they bring the President in to the story in the headline as if his mention of the crime (related to the wall) is somehow a bad thing!

Undocumented immigrant admits killing couple in spree cited by Trump, police say

An undocumented immigrant has admitted to killing a Reno, Nevada, couple using a gun he stole from their home, police say in a probable cause document.
President Donald Trump recently cited the killings and two others in a tweet in support of building a wall on the southern US border.
“Four people in Nevada viciously robbed and killed by an illegal immigrant who should not have been in our Country,” the President tweeted Monday. “We need a powerful Wall!”

nevadans murdered
CNN doesn’t show a picture of the victims.

The four people referenced include the Reno couple, plus two women who police say were victims of homicide in nearby Douglas County.
Connie Koontz, 56, was found dead January 10 in her home, and Sophia Renken, 74, was discovered dead January 13, also in her home.
Jerry David, 81, and his wife, Sherri David, 80, were found killed January 16 in their Reno home.
Investigators also discovered that possessions, including firearms, were stolen from the victims’ homes.
Wilber Ernesto Martinez-Guzman, 19, was arrested January 19. He was arraigned Thursday on 36 charges of burglary, possession of stolen property and obtaining money by false pretenses.
Prosecutors said he was found with weapons and other items stolen from the homes of the four victims.

Some of the victims knew Martinez-Guzman which suggests he had possibly cased their homes in advance—-a lesson to the soft-hearted!

Update: See the shocking timeline of how he murdered all four. 


Martinez-Guzman told investigators he killed Jerry and Sherri David with a gun stolen from their home and said where he buried the firearm, according to the probable cause document. Ten additional guns were found at the same location.
In Martinez-Guzman’s home, police say they found an iWatch and Mac computer stolen from Koontz at the time she was killed.
There were no signs of forced entry at any of the crime scenes, and police have determined that Martinez-Guzman was familiar with all four victims, Douglas County Sheriff Dan Coverly said.

My previous posts on the case are here.

question markThe lesson to all of you:  Never permit a company (or an individual) to work at your home if workers are in the country illegally.
It is important for you to keep the story alive. According to CNN Martinez-Guzman will not be in court again until February 8th and by then the media will have moved along.  


Nevada Governor Announces his Desire for Office to Make "New Americans" Feel Welcome

“So, they will feel there is an office within the state that recognizes their contributions and that they are a part of our state and also of the country.”

Francisco Morales, a Sisolak spokesman

I would say the Governor’s timing stinks as Fox News reports this morning that the police in Carson City are about to file murder charges against an illegal alien from El Salvador.

Sisolak’s New American!

I don’t see the story posted yet, but a Fox & Friends reporter says that Wilbur Martinez-Guzman pawned jewelry belonging to two of those murdered earlier this month.
From the Nevada Independent (Emphasis is mine):

Sisolak Unveils Details of Proposed Governor’s Office for New Americans

This story has been edited for brevity and clarity and translated from Spanish.
In an inaugural State of the State address that touched on the economy, education, taxes and school security, Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak also announced a smaller but notable initiative — the creation of a center in Las Vegas that will help the immigrant community better adjust to American life.

Democrat Governor Steve Sisolak

Francisco Morales, a Sisolak spokesman, said that the Governor’s Office for New Americans is expected to open its doors in October if funding is approved. Sisolak’s budget calls for an administrator and one support staffer, at a cost of $184,000 in the 2020 fiscal year and $205,000 in the 2021 fiscal year.
Morales said the office will have its headquarters in Southern Nevada, within the governor’s office at Grant Sawyer State Office Building, located on Washington Avenue, near Las Vegas Boulevard.
“The focus will be on helping people blend in to our society more easily and learn about all the services and benefits our state offers,”  [Services of course is welfare!—ed] Morales said in an interview during the Cafecito with Luz and Michelle radio show. “So, they will feel there is an office within the state that recognizes their contributions and that they are a part of our state and also of the country.”
Morales said the plan is to combine efforts with non-profit organizations that provide assistance to the immigrant community, such as the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada, Casa del Immigrante Foundation, and the UNLV Immigration Clinic. [Joining forces means helping those non-profits get their hands in taxpayers’ wallets!—ed]
“The goal is to try to centralize services and to serve as a source of information people can trust. I think sometimes people are afraid, they’re shy when it comes to approaching their government and that’s why we want to create an office where they’ll feel comfortable,” he said. “And to have people who speak Spanish, people from the community.”

More here. The governor especially says they want to help the DACA kids get their benefits too.
Wouldn’t it be something if Wilbur Ernesto Martinez-Guzman was a DACA darling.

Pay attention to the vast increase in the number of times you see the phrase “new Americans.” 

That is what the Open Borders Left calls immigrants of all stripes (legal and illegal) and by controlling the language they control the narrative and wipe out any opportunity to make the distinction between legal and illegal entry in to our country.
The Left also uses the word “refugee” very loosely because they want you to think that anyone on the move anywhere in the world is a legitimate refugee.  An asylum seeker is not a refugee until they have been granted refugee status.
You, obviously should continue to use the phrase “illegal alien” if you know someone is here illegally. If the illegal alien is a criminal you might also tag them with the “new American” phrase to mock the Left.
I  generally use the word “migrant” when I don’t know the immigration status of someone or some group.

question markWant something to do?
Watch for it—the “new American” verbiage—and try to set the record straight whenever and wherever you can! Don’t let the Left control our language with their politically-correct mumbo-jumbo!

Update: Nevada Murder Spree, Police Expected to File Charges Against Illegal Alien from El Salvador

At least that is what the Associated Press reported earlier today.
As soon as it happens, I’ll let you know.  (See my post yesterday.)

In the meantime, AP tells us a little about the four victims murdered in their homes.
AP story headlined:

Salvadoran man to be charged in Nevada killing spree


LAS VEGAS, Nevada —
A man suspected of being in the U.S. illegally shot and killed four people in Nevada over the past two weeks, including an elderly Reno couple, authorities said, and the slayings added fuel to the immigration debate.
nevada killerWilbur Ernesto Martinez-Guzman, 19, from El Salvador, has been jailed in Carson City since Saturday on possession of stolen property, burglary and immigration charges.
Authorities said they expect to file murder charges against him in Reno in the shooting deaths of a Washoe County couple and in Douglas County in the slayings of two women in Gardnerville.
Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong said federal immigration authorities told his office that Martinez-Guzman was in the country illegally.

No details of how the four were killed has been released. All died within the same week.

The investigation began Jan. 10, when 56-year-old Connie Koontz was found dead in her home. Three days later, the body of 74-year-old Sophia Renken was discovered in her home about a mile (1.6 kilometers) from where Koontz lived, authorities said.

nevada murders
The Davids

On Jan. 16, the bodies of 81-year-old Gerald David and his 80-year-old wife, Sharon, were found in their home on the southern edge of Reno.
The two were remembered as “jovial” by Tom Cates, a longtime friend who knew the Davids through Reno’s rodeo and equestrian scene.
Cates said Gerald David used his time as the Reno Rodeo Association president in 2006 to promote a breast cancer awareness campaign by getting the group’s cowboys to show they were “tough enough to wear pink shirts.”
“You walk into a room and his presence will just command attention. He was a true leader,” Cates said.
Sharon David was “exuberant” and “bubbly” and “loved animals to the hills,” he said. She was a former director of the rodeo.

Continue reading here to learn more about the other two victims. Be sure to watch the video which gives some more information about why the investigation is taking time.
The President has tweeted about the case, but most of the coverage so far has been local.  I expect that will change when the Nevada authorities present their case.
If murder charges are brought against Martinez-Guzman it will be up to you to get the information out far and wide. There will be great reluctance on the part of the Leftwing media to mention the case in light of their desire to defeat the President on the wall security issue.
They will be furious if he is right again!
