Suspect In Jersey City Anti-Semitic Attacks Allegedly Listened Repeatedly To Louis Farrakhan

Via NY Times:

An assailant involved in the prolonged firefight in Jersey City, N.J., that left six people dead, including one police officer, was linked on Wednesday to the Black Hebrew Israelite movement, and had published anti-Semitic posts online, a law enforcement official said.

The violent rampage on Tuesday took place largely at a kosher supermarket where three bystanders were killed. The authorities now believe that the store was specifically targeted by the assailants, whom they identified as David N. Anderson, 47, and Francine Graham, 50.

Mr. Anderson appeared to have a connection to the Black Hebrew Israelite movement, though the extent of his involvement in that group remains unclear, the law enforcement official said.

The Black Hebrew Israelites, which has no connection with mainstream Judaism, has been described as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, a legal advocacy group that tracks such movements.

Hunter Biden Scheduled To Be Deposed Before Christmas About Money Made, From Burisma, Other Foreign Companies

They’ll likely try to postpone, but because they’ve already stalled so much, let’s see if the court holds to this date.

Via Daily Mail:

Lunden Roberts, the mother of Hunter Biden’s baby, will get to grill Joe Biden’s scandal-ridden son under oath about his finances while he was on the board of an Ukrainian oil company, according to court papers obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com.

Biden, 49, is expected to bring all his financial records as Robert’s legal team plans to question him about his monthly earnings serving as a board member for Burisma.

The two are currently engaged in a high-profile paternity case after Roberts, 28, filed suit against Biden in May, seeking child support for their 16-month-old child.

The deposition will take place a few days before Christmas, on December 23, at 9am in Little Rock, Arkansas, according to court documents filed on Wednesday.

Exit Polls: Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party Projected To Win UK Election, Clearing Path For Brexit

Via USA Today:

LONDON – Britain’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson secured a comfortable majority in Parliament, a BBC exit poll showed Thursday, after an election that pitted Johnson’s plan to “get Brexit done” against opposition parties who wanted to delay Britain’s departure from the European Union or even cancel it altogether.

The result, if confirmed, likely paves the way forJohnson to push through Brexit on Jan. 31. It will also put to bed three years of divisive and acrimonious debate by lawmakers over whether Britain should leave a bloc it joined more than four decades ago.

An overall result is expected in the early hours of Friday morning.

The Conservatives were predicted to win 368 out of a possible 650 seats, which would be the party’s best performance in an election since Margaret Thatcher in 1987. The result, if it holds, marks a terrible day for the Labour Party led by Jeremy Corbyn and those hoping to delay or overturn Brexit. For Johnson, it will be a triumph.

U.S. Reaches In-Principle China Deal, Awaits Trump Signoff

Via Bloomberg:

U.S. negotiators have reached the terms of a phase-one trade deal with China that now awaits President Donald Trump’s approval, according to people briefed on the plans.

Trade advisers were set to meet with the president at 2:30 p.m. to discuss the agreement. An announcement could come by day’s end, the people said. A White House spokesperson declined to comment.

The terms have been agreed but the legal text has not yet been finalized, according to the people. The administration has reached out to allies on Capitol Hill and in the business community to issue statements of support once the announcement is made, they said.

U.S. stocks rose and Treasury yields spiked on the news. Earlier Thursday, Trump tweeted that the U.S. and China are “VERY close” to signing a “BIG” trade deal, also sending equities higher.

Nadler on Impeachment: ‘What Is Central Here Is Do We Want a Dictator’

WTF is he talking about?

NADLER: “What is central here is, do we want a dictator? No matter how popular he may be, no matter how good or bad the results of his policies may be, no president is supposed to be a dictator in the United States. When I hear colleagues of mine arguing that Congress is unpopular and therefore obstruction of Congress is a good thing, this shows terrible ignorance or lack of care for our institutions, for our democracy, for our form of government, for our liberties. I, for one, will protect our liberties, will do everything I can to protect our liberties, our democracy, our free and fair elections, and the separation of powers that says Congress and the president and the judiciary check each other and nobody can be a dictator. I yield back.”

Pro-Abortion Group’s Christmas Message: ‘Abortions Are Magical’…

Revolting to say the least.

Via Newsbusters:

A pro-abortion group called the Texas Equal Access (TEA) Fund has a rather sick message at Christmastime.

On December 4, the TEA Fund posted a photo (right) of votive candles with the words “Abortions Are Magical,” along with the image of a unicorn. It was captioned, “Getting our holiday party favors ready! Every year we honor our volunteers and make sure they get a token of appreciation at our annual holiday party.”

No, the magic of Christmas is NOT about abortion. In fact, it’s the very opposite: it’s about the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

And yet, in another post the following day explaining “why we use the language we use,” the TEA Fund wrote “Abortions are magical for most people who have them and refuting that just increases stigma around abortion. They are health care, self care,[sic] and community care.”

Tlaib Blames ‘White Supremacy’ for Anti-Semitic Murders Carried Out by Black Assailants

Neat trick.

Via Free Beacon:

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) blamed “white supremacy” Thursday for a mass killing in New Jersey carried out by two black assailants, one of whom had ties to a nationalist hate group.

Tlaib linked to a tweet from IfNotNow naming three of the victims of Wednesday’s rampage in Jersey City, two of whom were Orthodox Jews. She wrote, “This is heartbreaking. White supremacy kills.”

Tlaib, who represents a majority African-American district in Detroit, deleted her tweet after respondents pointed out the race of the suspects. She didn’t send any follow-up tweet acknowledging her error, condemning the perpetrators, or expressing condolences for the victims.

The shooters were identified as David Anderson and Francine Graham. Anderson had ties to the Black Hebrew Israelites, a black separatist movement that was labeled a hate group by the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center. Known for its members who engage in provocative street preaching, the group harbors black supremacists and has no association with Judaism.

Budget Office Releases New Legal Memo Indicating Delay In Ukraine Aid Was Routine

Oh. Paging Democrats…

Via Daily Wire:

The White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) released a new legal memo on Wednesday indicating that the Trump administration’s decision to temporarily hold military assistance to Ukraine was a “routine” practice and that the administration was reviewing whether Ukraine complied with U.S. policy.

The memo indicated that the decision to withhold the aid was not a political action to block Congress’ spending decisions.

“The office first began discussing the aid on June 19, the day President Trump learned of the aid from an article in the Washington Examiner and questioned the wisdom of the spending,” The Washington Post reported. “That move sent aides scrambling, according to a senior administration official who spoke on the condition of anonymity to share internal conversations.”

Louie Gohmert Drops The Name Of The Whistleblower


Via NY Post:

Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert dropped the name of the alleged whistleblower whose complaint sparked the Trump impeachment probe in a nationally televised House Judiciary Committee hearing Wednesday night.

The Texas lawmaker said the name during his opening statement in day one of the committee’s two-day marathon session to debate possible “markups,” or amendments to the two articles of impeachment brought against President Trump.

Gohmert incorporated the alleged whistleblower’s name into a grouping of “fact witnesses” he claimed House Democrats have blocked from testifying in front of the committees carrying out the impeachment probe.

“They don’t want fact witnesses,” said Gohmert. “Let’s hear from professors who hate Donald Trump,” he said, referring to last week’s House Judiciary Committee hearing that featured a panel of four constitutional scholars.
