This month, we began the new decade the same way that we finished the old decade. Last year in Dallas, more than 200 people were murdered; sadly, most were African Americans. Though we march for justice and claim “Black Lives Matter,” they clearly don’t matter to us in Dallas, as most of the killings are committed by Black members of our society.
Our nation is at war with itself. If you are young, gifted and Black, chances are you will not get to be old enough to brag about it. Rory Norman, a 1-year-old, was killed last week. His family apparently was targeted in an ambush at their home.
How many children, how many babies, must die at our own hands before we realize we are our biggest enemy?
The city of Dallas and its police department are under political fire. This criticism is warranted as its leadership has the moral responsibility to provide security to its citizens. Whatever it takes to restore safety, sanctity, and sanity, the city must act.
The city acting means it must not police and occupy because of crime stats. This was done earlier in a ham-fisted manner, resulting in a Dallas citizen, Schaston Hodge, being shot 16 times by the Texas Rangers.
The mayor and the city manager are wringing their collective hands because this type of crime is bad for business. How can business interests bring corporate dollars to enrich Dallas further?
Now before we blame the Dallas Police Department on increased crimes of murders and assaults, let’s be real! These are often not random killings, but crimes which reflect our social ills. This crime upsurge cannot be solved by merely policing more or throwing money at the problem. This can only be changed if we change. We alone must Silence the Violence.
Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall has been given an ultimatum to reduce crime. If she is going to reduce crime — a tremendous task — Chief Hall needs help from the Black community. The community — our Black community — must police itself.
We must Silence the Violence.
The Black Lives Matter movement must immediately be an internal call for Dallas. We must stop the self-inflicted genocide that goes on yearly. If we do not, then 2020 will be just like 2019. If we do not, it will be another number, another death, and another hashtag.

After Brexit UK will seek trade talks first with the EU before commencing any serious talks with the USA.
“Getting Brexit Done” will mean very little if we cannot keep our promises to blue collar voters.
The result of the last general election wasn’t just a substantial victory for the Conservatives but a marker for a new era in British politics. It was as significant as Margaret Thatcher’s victory in 1979, where she gained a majority of 43, drawing hundreds of thousands of votes away from Labour’s traditional support base. The same happened again in 2019, as life-long Labour supporters voted Conservative for the first time.
For my party, “Getting Brexit Done” will mean very little if we cannot keep our promises to these voters, who have felt left behind for too long. Brexit exposed the reality that the UK has become a tale of two countries – of London and the South East vs the rest. In this divided nation, a metropolitan elite, inhabiting the ‘beltway’ in London over successive governments, has disproportionately benefitted from comfortable arrangements that suited them often to the detriment of the rest of the UK.
Whilst London and the South East have the highest productivity in the EU, other regions of the UK are lagging behind. It is from these regions that Boris Johnson gained votes for the first time and now we must deliver to them.
How can we achieve this? Staring us in the face as the next phase of the negotiations starts are some quick wins to support these blue collar Tories, who placed their trust in us.
First, once we officially leave, we must do a much better job than we have done so far in the next negotiating round. The EU have it all mapped out, they believe they have us over a barrel and are toughening their position. From what they understand in their conversations with civil servants, the UK will seek trade talks first with the EU before commencing any serious talks with the USA.
Senator Elizabeth Warren is a liar. Here is the evidence!
The Massachusetts Democrat lied about being an American Indian, lied when she promised to serve her full Senate term if reelected in 2018, lied when she said her children attended public schools, lied when she said her father worked as a janitor, lied when she said she was fired for being “visibly pregnant.”
But now Ms. Warren says she thinks it’s “disqualifying” if a presidential candidate doesn’t tell the truth.

Trump asks nation to pray over his impeachment, says he’s done nothing wrong
On the campaign trail on Sunday, Ms. Warren was asked by CBS News reporter Zak Hudak: “Is it disqualifying for a presidential candidate to lie to the American public about anything?”
“Uh, I would think that it, you know, how could the American people want someone who lies to them?” Ms. Warren stuttered, sealing almost inaudibly. “Um, I think that, that we just do our best out there every day, and I hope that’s what happens with everyone.”
She then quickly turned away from Mr. Hudak and took a question from a friendlier reporter.
Ms. Warren, who has been endorsed by The New York Times as one of the two best candidates running for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, has a very long history of telling flat-out, bald-faced lies.
Shortly before Ms. Warren entered the presidential race, she decided to get a DNA test to prove her longtime claim that she is American Indian. The test results were a disaster, showing she may have had an Indian ancestor — six to 10 generations ago. That means she’s anywhere from 1/64 to 1/1,024 American Indian.
To put those terms into percentages, that means she’s between 1.562% and .0924%. So that means she’s anywhere from 98.4% to 99.9% white. That’s white.
Ms. Warren benefited greatly from her longtime claim.
She listed herself as Native American in the Association of American Law School Directory, and according to The Boston Globe, she “had her ethnicity changed from white to Native American at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, where she taught from 1987 to 1995, and at Harvard University Law School, where she was a tenured faculty member starting in 1995.”
Some critics say she got her job at Harvard by claiming to be American Indian.
“Harvard Law School in the 1990s touted Warren, then a professor in Cambridge, as being Native American,’” CNN reported in November 2018. “They singled her out, Warren later acknowledged, because she had listed herself as a minority in an Association of American Law Schools directory.”
For the record, in just two years, 2010 and 2011, Ms. Warren — who taught one class at the prestigious Ivy League school — pulled in $429,981.
So much for her claim to American Indian heritage.
And Ms. Warren’s been caught in other lies as well. Last October, during a town hall in Nevada, she told the crowd she lost her teaching job in the early 1970s because she was “visibly pregnant.”
“By the end of the first year, I was visibly pregnant, and the principal did what principals did in those days — wish me luck and hire someone else for the job,” she told a crowd in Carson City.
But a YouTube clip posted in January 2008 shows Ms. Warren giving a completely different reason for why she left that school. Jeryl Bier, who pointed out her conflicting comments in a post on The Script, noted that the interview was conducted in 2007 at the University of California, Berkeley as part of a series called “Conversations with History.”
“My first year post-graduation, I worked — it was in a public school system but I worked with the children with disabilities. And I did that for a year, and then that summer I actually didn’t have the education courses, so I was on an ‘emergency certificate,’” Ms. Warren told interviewer Harry Kreisler.
So much for her #MeToo moment.
Ms. Warren was also outed lying about sending her children to public school. In November, she told a school-choice activist in Atlanta that her children didn’t go to private schools, but the next day her campaign told a different story.
That admission came after a yearbook obtained by The Washington Free Beacon showed that during the 1986-1987 school year, Ms. Warren’s son Alex attended Kirby Hall, which currently charges nearly $18,000 per year for tuition.
Trying to bolster her fake working-class bona fides in her phony populist campaign, the multi-millionaire who lives in a $2.5 million house claimed her father worked as a “janitor.” That made her brother “furious.” “My dad was never a janitor,” brother David Herring told The Boston Globe.
So Ms. Warren is a pathological — and prolific — liar. And she knows it.
She just doesn’t want you to know it. But now you do.
The U.S. Senate voted early on Wednesday on party lines to approve the rules for President Trump’s impeachment trial, rejecting Democratic efforts to obtain evidence and ensure witnesses are heard.
As the third presidential impeachment trial in U.S. history began in earnest, Trump’s chief legal defender argued the Democratic case was a baseless effort to overturn the 2016 election but a top Democratic lawmaker said there was “overwhelming” evidence of wrongdoing.
Trump was impeached last month by the House of Representatives on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress for pressuring Ukraine to investigate former Democratic Vice President Joe Biden, a political rival, and impeding the inquiry into the matter. The president denies any wrongdoing.
After U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts convened the proceedings, the two sides began more than 12 hours of squabbling that lasted into Wednesday morning over Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s proposed rules for the trial.
Senators voted along party lines, 53-47, to block four separate motions from Democratic leader Chuck Schumer to subpoena records and documents from the White House, the State Department, the Defense Department and the Office of Management and Budget related to Trump’s dealings with Ukraine.
Wildlife biologists recommended the urgent action to protect California Spotted Owls.
In the Pacific Northwest, the range expansion of Barred Owls has contributed to a conservation crisis for Northern Spotted Owls, which are being displaced from their old-growth forest habitat. How will this interaction between species play out in the Sierra Nevada, where Barred Owls are just starting to move into the range of the California Spotted Owl? New research published in The Condor: Ornithological Applications suggests that wildlife managers may still be able to head off similar problems in critical areas of the Golden State — if they act now.
The University of Wisconsin’s Connor Wood and his colleagues used passive acoustic monitoring to survey Barred Owl populations over two years, deploying audio recorders over an area spanning more than 6,000 square kilometers across two national forests in northern California. Locating owl calls in the audio data allowed them to determine which sites were and were not occupied by owls. They found a 2.6-fold increase in the amount of territory occupied by Barred Owls between 2017 and 2018, and the old forest habitat preferred by Spotted Owls was the most likely to be colonized.
Populations of invasive species typically remain at low densities for several generations before growing rapidly. Because intervening to control a potentially damaging invasive species requires many resources, land managers often wait for strong evidence that a species will pose a threat before taking action. But, by the time the “growth phase” has started, it’s often too late. Wood and his colleagues believe their results show that the growth phase of the Barred Owl population in the region is just beginning, meaning wildlife managers still have time to act. Only a narrow band of fairly unsuitable habitat connects the existing Pacific Northwest population of Barred Owls to the Sierra Nevada stronghold of California Spotted Owls, and the researchers recommend experimentally removing Barred Owls from the Sierra Nevada side of this pinch point to see if this can prevent them from becoming established further south.
“We suggested that managers act according to the Precautionary Principle: when there is a serious threat to human health or the environment, proactive responses are justified even if there is some uncertainty,” says Wood. “We feel that experimental Barred Owl removals in the Sierra Nevada are an important step in determining the best long-term management strategy. This is not something that anyone takes lightly, but we feel that it is warranted because of the very real possibility that continued Barred Owl population growth could seriously endanger the California Spotted Owl. By catching this invasion in the early stages, we have a unique but potentially fleeting opportunity to inform policies that could prevent the California Spotted Owl from being driven extinct in the core of its range.”

Air New Zealand looks to populate the cockpits of its turboprop fleet in 2020. Company has put a call out for budding pilots.
An ad posted on the airline’s website says entry into the career begins at first officer level and can be based in one of many regional towns around Aotearoa.
“Whether you are looking for a career flying props or a pathway to our jet fleet, this is a great point of entry,” the posting says.
“As a first officer flying a Dash 8 Q300 or an ATR, you will play a pivotal role in flying our customers to their destinations for work, business, family or pleasure.”

As well as holding a series of licenses and certificates, applicants must have level six english language proficiency, be entitled to work permanently in New Zealand, and be able to swim 50m in under two minutes.
Anyone with a foreign license which could potentially be converted to a New Zealand-approved licence can also apply.
Air NZ currently operates 23 ATR 72 – 600s, with six more on order, as well as six of the older ATR 72 – 500s and 23 Bombardier Q300s, often referred to as the ‘Dash-8’.
These turboprop aircraft carry between 50-70 passengers and operate to regional airports such as those in Tauranga, Rotorua, New Plymouth, Palmerston North and Napier.
The conditions at Mississippi’s Parchman prison makes it one of the worst detention facilities in the world, according to reform advocates and human rights organizations.
Death and violence are rampant, many inmates are without beds, and electricity, plumbing, and fundamental human rights are absent. At the same time, mold, roaches, mosquitos, and rodents far outnumber the more than 5,000 inmates.
On Tuesday, January 14, hip-hop superstar Jay-Z sued the head of the Mississippi Department of Corrections and the warden on behalf of 29 prisoners who have complained that officials have done nothing to stop the violence at Parchman.
In the suit filed in U.S. District Court in Greenville, Mississippi, Jay-Z addressed the recent deaths at the prison.
“These deaths are a direct result of Mississippi’s utter disregard for the people it has incarcerated and their constitutional rights,” the mogul said in the court filing.
The suit names Department of Corrections Commissioner Pelicia Hall and Mississippi State Penitentiary Superintendent Marshall Turner as defendants.
Earlier this month, hip-hop stars T.I. and Yo Gotti called on the governor to close the prison or to address the issues adequately.
“This is unacceptable,” T.I. wrote on his Instagram page.
“The conditions in the prisons operated by the Mississippi Department of Corrections are absolutely inhumane and unconstitutional,” Yo Gotti wrote in a letter to Gov. Phil Bryant, a Republican.
“To see this happen so close to my hometown of Memphis is truly devastating. That’s why we’re calling on Mississippi state leaders to take immediate action and rectify this issue. If they don’t right this wrong, we’re prepared to take legal action to provide relief for those that are incarcerated and their families,” Gotti said.
In an alarming 2019 report on Parchman and other Mississippi prisons, The Marshall Project found that gang activity isn’t limited to some of the people incarcerated. They discovered that some prison employees, including some high ranking officers and managers, are affiliated with one of two gangs, the Vice Lords or Gangster Disciples. The reasons vary.
“Some staffers said gang loyalty gives some officers a measure of protection; since gangs have a lot of control, they can prevent certain attacks,” The Marshall Project reported. “Others say gang affiliation began before employment; according to lawsuits, testimony, and interviews, gangs directly recruit women to apply for correctional officer jobs.”
In a tweet, Pro Publica officials said, “Understaffed and underfunded, Mississippi’s #ParchmanPrison recently received media attention for its grisly violence, gang control, and subhuman living conditions. Lawmakers have known about these issues for years — and have done nothing to fix it.”
Earlier this month, five inmates were killed after allegedly trying to escape.
Video captured by cellphones, which are routinely smuggled into the prison, surfaced online this month appearing to show inside Parchman and the conditions in which inmates live.
One shows individuals in orange and white prison uniforms walking through piles of trash and dirty water. Mold is apparent, and there’s no electricity, heat, plumbing, and many inmates sleep on concrete because there aren’t enough beds.
“We sleeping on straight concrete. There are no mats,” one person on the video states. The individuals than demonstrate that there’s no running water by trying to flush toilets and opening faucets and showers. In another video, two inmates also complain about the lack of running water. “Please get us some help,” they plead.
In still another video, an inmate appears to breakdown emotionally as he sits in an area where prisoners have disposed of their feces.
In the heart of the Mississippi Delta, the prison, once a plantation that was home to hundreds of slaves, has a long history that’s intertwined with Mississippi’s racist past.
In 1901, the state government of Mississippi established Parchman Penitentiary, taking advantage of an opportunity to continue to profit off of cheap Black labor, much like Whites had done for generations before, while also continuing to exercise violent control over the descendants of former slaves.
Historians at the University of North Carolina said Parchman was modeled after a traditional southern plantation, for-profit prison in Sunflower County was segregated until 1971. “While a small farm held White convicts, Black inmates labored on Parchman’s massive, twenty-thousand-acre plantation, where they picked cotton, chopped wood, and plowed fields under the control of armed guards,” the historians said.
Today, of the more than 5,000 inmates at Parchman, more than 60 percent are African American. The prison has an 11-to-1 inmate to guard ratio, and no one is safe.
“I will be requesting that the U.S. Attorney General launch an investigation into the ongoing failures in safety, security, health, and environmental standards within the Mississippi Department of Corrections,” said U.S. Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.). “This is unacceptable,” Thompson wrote on Twitter.
Once again, Open Doors, the nonprofit that tracks and reports religious persecution around the world, finds in its 2020 World Watch List that it’s increasingly dangerous — fatal, in many instances — to claim Christianity as a faith, particularly in North Korea and in Muslim-dominated countries.
Once again, of the top ten anti-Christian countries of the world, eight slots go to nations with predominantly Islam populations.
And once again, the news of Islam’s radical tendencies will very likely fall on deaf Democrat ears.
In 2017, Pew Research Center found this: “Republicans and Republican leaners … are more likely than Democrats and those who lean Democratic to say they are very concerned about extremism in the name of Islam, both around the world (67% vs. 40%) and in the U.S. (64% vs. 30%). In addition, a December 2016 survey found that more Republicans than Democrats say Islam is likelier than other religions to encourage violence among its believers (63% vs. 26% of Democrats).”
See no evil. Hear no evil. Speak no evil.
But that hardly takes away the evil. Or some politically uncomfortable truths.
Among those truths? Each and every day, and on average, eight Christians in the last year were killed; 23 raped or sexually harassed; 182 churches and 102 homes and businesses belonging to Christians attacked, burned or destroyed; and 309 Christians jailed — all of that simply for the crime of following Jesus, Open Doors reported.
Also among those truths: “Today,” Open Doors wrote, “more than 260 million [Christians] face persecution for their faith” — “an increase of 15 million” “in only one year.”
Also among those truths: Islam is to blame for a good chunk of the Christian persecution.
For the 19th consecutive year, North Korea is the world’s Number One persecutor of Christianity. Of course, atheist dictatorship North Korea persecutes all religions — save those that worship the communists’ dear leader as god.
The next biggest persecutors, though, do so because they’re Muslim and their religion cannot tolerate diversity.
In order, they’re Afghanistan, Somalia, Libya, Pakistan, Eritrea, Sudan, Yemen, Iran and India. In all, Islam is either the state religion or predominantly practiced religion — except for India. Hinduism dominates there, followed by Islam. Eritrea, meanwhile, has a large Christian population, but they’re increasingly subjected to attack from the Islamic regime.
“Christians who aren’t members of state-approved churches are considered agents of the West and threat to the state,” Open Doors reported. “From June to August 2019, more than 150 Christians were arrested in [two cities]. … This extreme pressure and state-sanctioned violence are forcing some Christians to flee Eritrea — often called ‘Africa’s North Korea.’”
News from the other anti-Christian hot spots of the world is similarly grim.
On Pakistan, Open Doors wrote: “An estimated 700 [Christian] girls and women abducted each year are raped and then forcefully married to Muslim men in the community, usually resulting in forced conversions.”
On Afghanistan: “An Islamic state by constitution, the country does not permit any faith other than Islam to exist. … Those who are discovered to be Christians may be sent to a mental hospital … beaten or even killed by family members, or members of Islamic extremist groups.”
On Libya: “Migrant Christians who have been arrested and detained while trying to reach Europe often end up in one of the overcrowded detention centers around Tripoli … [where] they are forced into heavy labor in the agricultural sector or pushed into prostitution.”
On Somalia: “Islamic militants have intensified their hunt for people who are Christian and in a position of leadership. … Christians in Somalia remained so vulnerable to attacks by Islamic militants that in the interests of security, Open Doors could publish no specific examples of persecution.”
Following Jesus shouldn’t be so dangerous — or fatal.
And maybe it wouldn’t be if so many in so many positions of power and influence didn’t turn blind eyes to the truths of the roots of the persecution. Yes, Democrats, that means you.
After all, it’s impossible to cure a problem without first acknowledging the source of the problem.

The last week’s news proves one thing: the Democrats started to lose credibility with the public. And the mainstream media show it.
On Thursday, the “bombshell” testimony of Lev Parnas proved to be little more than a Dollar General plastic popgun. Mr. Parnas is under indictment for fraud, and his own foreign minister, Vadym Prystaiko, says, “Frankly, I don’t trust any word he is now saying.” Can you spell Michael Avenatti, here?
Likewise, on Thursday, the GAO (that’s the Government Accountability Office. Google “oxymoron” for a further definition if you’re confused) reported that the Trump administration broke the law in delaying the disbursement of Ukrainian aid.
Our collective response should be, “So what!” Back in 2014, the same GAO ruled that Obama broke the law by swapping five detainees at Guantanamo Bay for the deserter Bowe Bergdahl. You remember the cries for impeachment, then don’t you? Oh, that’s right, the deafening sound of crickets must have drowned them out.
On Wednesday, Gov. Ralph “Blackface” Northam, the man who created a state emergency in Virginia by threatening to suspend the U.S. Constitution, declared a state of emergency. It appears, shocker of all shockers, that Virginians actually believe they are U.S. citizens who have the rights guaranteed to them by the U.S. Constitution. One wonders if the good governor ever took a freshman-level course in Socratic logic, self-fulfilling prophecies, and “begging the question.”
Meanwhile, back in Hollywood, Alec Baldwin, that paragon of virtue if there ever was one; a man who has been recorded verbally abusing his wife and children; a model citizen who has been convicted of physically assaulting strangers; a guy who routinely employs a vocabulary that even the U.S. Navy has officially labeled embarrassing; took to Twitter to audition publicly for a role as deranged hypocrite.
The “near moral collapse of this [entire] country,” spouted Mr. Baldwin, “falls squarely in the lap of Trump’s supporters.” If the emoji for “Hmm” is the first thing to come to mind, you’re not alone.
During Tuesday night’s Democratic debate, not to be outdone in this competition for crazy, Elizabeth Warren called Bernie Sanders a liar for pointing out that she is, well, a pathological liar. Sidebar: The word on the street is that Sen. Warren plans to announce, this coming week, that henceforth, she’ll be “identifying” as a white male because Mr. Sanders privately told “him” that a Cherokee woman can’t win the presidency.
Anyway, back to the party of economic “justice” and the” average man.”
On Friday, Jan. 10, Michael Bloomberg (whose net worth is estimated to be $60 billion) had a rally in Atlanta. He was so desperate for people to show up that he donated $5 million to Stacey Abrams so she would rally the troops and help draw a bigger crowd. One-hundred-fifty people came. That works out to about $33,000 per head, which is roughly the equivalent of what he plans to tax each and every one of us if we are stupid enough to elect him.
On Jan. 13, Spartacus became “Departacus,” as Sen. Cory Booker announced he was dropping out of the race.
On Jan. 15, several cameramen were trampled by the Squad and their obedient lemmings as they rushed to chambers to block a vote to support Iranian protesters. Yes, these “social justice Democrats” just blocked a vote supporting Iranians who are risking their lives marching for justice. George Orwell just called and wants his royalties.
Oh, and there’s this one. Rising in the polls to a virtual tie for the lead in Iowa is major Pete Buttigieg, a delusional man, who is the poster child for the Pauline “debased mind.” This is a man who not only defines himself by a practice that Moses, Paul, Peter, James and Jesus explicitly condemn, but he persists in calling himself a Christian. Did someone say something about crazy?
But the take-home for the week is this: On Tuesday, a Bernie Sanders staffer took the lead in this parade for the insane by going live on video saying, “The cops are gonna be the ones that are getting f**king beaten in Milwaukee [if Sen. Sanders loses the 2020 Democrat nomination].” Another staffer is heard in the background, saying that if Mr. Trump gets re-elected “cities burn.” He went on to argue for “reeducation camps” akin to those of Nazi Germany for dealing with Trump supporters once Sanders gains political power.
Dallas Willard’s 2006 book, “The Great Omission,” proves prophetic of our times: “[Thoreau’s] ‘life of quiet desperation’ is at present, becoming noticeably more desperate and less quiet. The sad litany of misdeeds and depraved characters that Paul listed in such places as Romans 1 and 3 … is as up to date as the latest … evening news … [Our world] staggers under the burden of human wickedness … All of [it] is so common that the normal person is almost blind to it, accepting it as ‘just the way things are.”

The famed Ultimate Fighting Championship fighter Conor McGregor praised President Trump who was celebrating his three-year anniversary since being sworn into office on Twitter this Monday.
“Phenomenal President,” McGregor said. He posted an image of a goat, which is widely known to mean “Greatest of All Time.”
“Most certainly one of them anyway, as he sits atop the shoulders of many amazing giants that came before him. No easy feet (sic). Early stages of term also. Incredible. Congrats and Happy Martin Luther King Jr. day America”
McGregor’s post was in response to Trump pointing out that it was his three-year anniversary in office on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
“It was exactly three years ago today, January 20, 2017, that I was sworn into office,” Trump wrote on Monday. “So appropriate that today is also MLK jr DAY. African-American Unemployment is the LOWEST in the history of our Country, by far. Also, best Poverty, Youth, and Employment numbers, ever. Great!”
Back in October, the Labor Department reported Black and Hispanic unemployment was at a record low, according to CNBC.
McGregor defeated Donald Cerrone in just 40 seconds at UFC 246 on Saturday night. His return to the octagon was marked with his first victory in mixed martial arts since 2016.
