Teacher Says Parents Shouldn’t Have Any Say in School Drag Queen Event

According to news reports, Willis High School English teacher Anthony Lane took to Facebook to scold parents who were outraged that a drag queen performer had been invited to the school to instruct students how to apply make-up in a cosmetology class. In a post that has since been removed, Lane allegedly said the school’s parents were beholden to “misguided, bigoted views” that were driven by their “archaic beliefs.” . . .

The controversy began when a teacher invited a drag queen named Lynn Adonis-Deveaux to address a cosmetology class at Willis High School, according to Community Impact Newspaper.

The school district, which is approximately 40 minutes north of downtown Houston, told parents they were unaware the performer would be appearing in full drag. “School administrators learned at the end of the day that the man was wearing jeans but also wore heels and makeup,” a statement said. “However, the speaker did as asked, which was to talk to students about makeup application. The guest speaker did not discuss sexual orientation, lifestyle or anything else other than makeup application.” . . .

At least one local school administrator and several parents were angered by the school’s decision to invite Adonis-Deveaux to campus. “I put numerous calls into the administrator’s office, which of course they made it abundantly clear they will not talk about it,” said Dale Inman.

“I’ve got a problem when somebody with a false name enters a school and has advertised himself as an adult exotic dancer for men … Nobody would be allowed in a school under those circumstances,” Inman added, while noting Adonis-Deveaux is free to do what he wants in his personal life. “As a parent, I have a right to know who’s in that school building,” he said.

Journalists Who Exposed Planned Parenthood’s ‘Baby Body Parts’ Trade Found Guilty

The jury in the “Baby Body Parts” trial of activist and journalist David Daleiden has delivered a blow to undercover journalism, declaring that secret filming is now illegal and can leave journalists open to massive damages.

Planned Parenthood was awarded almost $2 million for the filming after alleging activist journalist David Daleiden secretly recorded executives negotiating to sell baby body parts.

Peter Breen, a lawyer for Mr. Daleiden, said the judgement is a direct threat to undercover journalism in California and across the country. . .

Judge Orrick told the jury in advance of their verdict that he has decided to find Daleiden guilty of trespass during his undercover journalism. Daleiden previously lost an attempt to have Judge Orrick removed from the case, alleging he was biased against the defendants.

Planned Parenthood sued Daleiden and his colleagues after they released secretly recorded videos of Planned Parenthood executives haggling over the sale and price of baby body parts from abortions in their facilities. Planned Parenthood made a series of claims – stating they had caused damages because of their invasion of privacy with the undercover filming, fraud because they set up a false buying company, and RICO conspiracy because a number of people worked together in the project. RICO charges are more normally associated with criminal mafia cases. The jury found for Planned Parenthood in all their claims.

After Losing Bet, Man Offers His Wife as Payment

An Indian man is being investigated for gambling his wife away before assaulting her when she refused to go with the winner.

The incident took place in the district of Banka in the north-eastern Indian state of Bihar when Binod Kumar Shah lost a bet who could not afford to pay, according to local media. . .

When he returned home later that evening, he woke up his wife and told her to pack her bags because he lost the bet and the winner was arriving in the morning to collect his ‘winnings’.

Devi told local media: ‘My husband told me the winner was coming to the house in the morning so I should get ready to leave with him because he lost the bet.’

That morning, Shah allegedly assaulted Devi when she refused to go with the winner. (Read more from “After Losing Bet, Man Offers His Wife as Payment” HERE)

Suspect in Disappearance of UFC Star’s Daughter Was out on Bail Despite Prior Charge of Attempted Murder

In the alternate universe of the elites, too many people are locked up both before trial and after conviction. That is why a House Judiciary subcommittee held a hearing yesterday essentially advocating for lowering and abolishing bail. In the real world, as I’ve reported here over and over again, even many of the worst repeat violent offenders are released, often with atrocious consequences. The case of Ibraheem Yazeed, 29, is a sickening example of how the voices of victims are being drowned out.

On October 24, the UFC community was rocked by the news that Aniah Blanchard, the 19-year-old stepdaughter of UFC heavyweight star Walt Harris, was reported missing under suspicious circumstances after she was last seen at a convenience store in Auburn, Alabama. After much public outpouring and investigating, police named Ibraheem Yazeed of Montgomery, Alabama, who was seen at the store with Blanchard, as a person of interest on November 7. He was captured by U.S. Marshals the following day in Escambia County, Florida, and held without bond on behalf of both Alabama and federal officials.

The charging affidavit cites a witness who saw Yazeed near the convenience store in Auburn “forcing Blanchard into a vehicle against her will and then leaving with her in the vehicle.” It also cites that blood “indicative of someone suffering a life-threatening injury” was discovered in the passenger’s side of Aniah Blanchard’s vehicle, which was later tested and confirmed to be hers.

As awful as this story is, it’s even worse if Yazeed is proven to be the culprit, because he should never have been out on the streets. In January, Yazeed and a female suspect were arrested in Montgomery on two counts of kidnapping, two counts of robbery, attempted murder, and possession of marijuana after he allegedly beat two elderly men. One victim was found “unconscious, unresponsive, severely injured and near death,” according to court records.

Yet he was released on $280,000 bond the very next day. It’s unclear whether he had to pay the entire sum or just 10 percent, but either way, someone like this should never have been released on bond after such charges and given his rap sheet. His record includes:

—A July 2017 arrest in Missouri for aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer, fleeing police, and drug charges. He wound up serving seven months in jail before trial, but was released on time served shortly after the disposition of the case.

—A 2015 felony drug conviction and a gun charge. There were multiple traffic and drug arrests that year, including fleeing from police, but according to the Montgomery Advertiser, he barely served time and wound up with six months of probation.

—A January 2012 attempted murder charge after authorities said he rammed his car into a Montgomery police car at a gas station when two deputies were exiting the vehicle.

—An April 2011 arrest on two counts of first-degree robbery.

The sad reality is that there are people like Yazeed all over the country who barely serve time in prison but are constantly engaging in violent crime. They wind up avoiding conviction due to endless loopholes and are let out on bond even after being charged with the worst crimes. Yet rather than pushing to close these loopholes, the bipartisan “abolish prison” movement keeps perpetuating the lie that too many people are locked up unjustly. No, too many people are victimized unjustly.

It took something like this for Yazeed to finally be held without bond. He was arraigned in Lee County court on Sunday following his extradition from Florida. There is a $105,000 reward for anyone with information about Blanchard, as family members still hope she is alive. The Auburn police chief indicated that more arrests are likely.

Unfortunately, extremely dangerous people arrested for high-level crimes are released every day, despite their massive rap sheets. Here’s another Florida case I’ve never written about. Yousuf Hasan, 25, of Orlando, Florida, is out on bail today, despite being charged with killing University of Central Florida student London Harrell in a vehicular manslaughter while driving drunk in June. After initially fleeing from police, Hasan confessed to the crime and apologized. Harrell was walking well within the grassy area of the campus when Hasan plowed into her. She died of her injuries several days later. Blood and hair were found on Hasan’s windshield that matched Harrell. According to WFTV, Highway Patrol said Hasan “had bloodshot, glassy eyes, slurred speech and was stumbling” and failed a sobriety test.

Upon his arrest, I’m sure the police and the local judge were aware of his massive rap sheet of dozens of charges dating back to 2010 – when Hasan was still a minor. Orange County, Florida, court records show Hasan had arrests for theft, shoplifting, trespassing, traffic violations, drugs, and numerous firearms violations. He barely served a night in jail. You would think he’d finally be held after this incident. But despite his record and despite being a member of the violent Nine Trey Gangster Bloods, he was initially released on $11,500 bond. After Harrell died several days later, bail was upped to $75,000, which he later posted. In September, he violated the terms of his release by tampering with his ankle bracelet, but the judge, in the growing reluctance to incarcerate criminals, refused to revoke his bail.

“His choices killed our daughter,” said Paula Cobb, Harrell’s mother. “He is a proven danger to our community with a deadly, violent drug- and gun-related past.”

Now, despite Hasan’s previous confession, he plead not guilty in court two weeks ago.

Who will be the voice for Aniah Blanchard and London Harrell and for the people every day who will die as a result of criminals released thanks to the cruel “compassion” of the political and legal elites? Just remember, the next time you hear the phrases “bail reform” or “criminal justice reform,” they mean bail elimination and jail elimination for people like Ibraheem Yazeed and Yousuf Hasan.

Vietnam War Vet Allegedly Killed by Drunk-Driving Illegal Alien Hours Before Veterans Day

Add 67-year-old Vietnam veteran Samuel W. Jackson to the endless list of thousands of Americans killed by illegal alien drunk drivers who will never have their memories evoked in Congress.

According to Norristown, Pennsylvania, police, Jackson was exiting his car on Sunday night when a speeding car driven by Nemias Perez-Severiano, 31, plowed into him and dragged his body for 55 feet. The driver fled the scene, but police used camera footage of the car to apprehend Severiano. The suspect later admitted to being “a little drunk” after consuming seven or eight beers at the La Poblanita Mexican Bar a few blocks away.

Local media reported Severiano as a “Norristown man,” but according to an ICE spokeswoman, “ICE lodged an immigration detainer Nov. 12 with the Norristown Police Department on Nemia Perez-Severiano, an illegally present Mexican national, following his Nov. 10 arrest by local law enforcement.”

As far as I can see, not a single news story on this high-profile tragedy has mentioned the ICE detainer, even though the fact that Severiano was driving without a license was an obvious indication that he might be in the country illegally.

Jackson’s death gained prominence in the media when the family of this Marine veteran was looking for a uniform for his military funeral. Richard Dunn, a retired Marine from a nearby community, donated his uniform for the burial, which will take place on Saturday, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Jackson was killed Sunday night, just hours before Veterans Day and on the 244th anniversary of the Marine Corps.

It’s enormously tragic that American veterans who are sent overseas to fight for us are killed back at home by illegal aliens who should never be in this country. Drunk driving is pervasive and is one of the most underreported epidemics in this country. Thousands of these drunk-driving incidents that result in serious damage, injury, or death are completely avoidable. This is especially true given that drunk driving is a habitual crime. Given that most American drunk drivers are barely punished, they will likely be out on the streets in short order doing it again. But when it comes to illegal alien drunk drivers, of which there are many, the first time they are caught driving drunk should be the last day they are in this country.

According to Montgomery County court records, Severiano was arrested on May 26 for “public drunkenness and similar misconduct.” While “public drunkenness” is considered low-level and would not result in jail time for Americans, an illegal alien caught for any crime should immediately be turned over to ICE.

There is no record in this case of a prior ICE detainer request, so this case is not a sanctuary issue, but it does reveal a broader absurdity in criminal justice, namely that the citizenship of an offender is not automatically tracked. Law-abiding citizens are asked whether they are U.S. citizens on a daily basis during many interactions with private and public officials. Why is it not standard procedure to ask anyone who is arrested, “What is your country of citizenship?” That is more important than any other arrest information because that will determine whether the individual can be removed from the country, thereby avoiding unnecessary costs and possible future lives taken by more crime.

This point was tragically evident in Wayne County, New York, last week. On Sunday, the same day Jackson was killed by an illegal alien in Pennsylvania, Mark Knapp was killed when he was ejected from his tractor parked on the shoulder of Route 31 in Weedsport after Heriberto Perez-Velasquez, an illegal alien allegedly driving drunk, plowed into the back of the tractor. He was charged with DUI manslaughter, driving without a license, and fleeing from police.

Knapp’s death was 100 percent avoidable. Perez-Velasquez is an illegal alien from Guatemala. Just three weeks before, on the night of October 18, Wayne County police caught him parked in the middle of a road and found that he was drunk. When they attempted to handcuff him, he took off running. He was eventually caught and charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated because he had a blood alcohol level of .22.

According to the Times of Wayne County, police actually contacted ICE after Perez-Velasquez couldn’t produce a driver’s license or any legal documentation. ICE requested that he be held and found he has previously been deported. But here’s the kicker: This is where jailbreak, aka weak-on-on-crime policies, merges with immigration law. It appears that the suspect was released without any bond because of the new law in New York abolishing bail for many criminal offenses. As I’ve reported extensively, even though the law doesn’t take effect until January, the state has gotten a head-start on abolishing bail. Thus, in the rush to comply with this insane law governing American criminals, somehow Perez-Velasquez wound up being released, and later went on to allegedly kill Mark Knapp.

Jailbreak and thwarting immigration law are a toxic mix of anarchy that leave American victims of crime with no recourse against totally avoidable deaths and sex offenses. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton expressed concern that Houston’s plan to abolish bail would lead to the reckless release of criminal aliens. The death of Mark Knapp in New York stands as a tragic testament to that premonition.

Sadly, there is utter silence from Congress on both the crime wave and illegal alien drunk drivers. How hard is it for them to run for office on the proposition that the first crime an illegal alien commits in this country should be the last? Some lives are just more equal than others to the politicians, and it’s not those of law-abiding Americans.

Judge: U.S. Born Woman Who Joined ISIS Is Not an American Citizen

A federal judge ruled Thursday that an American-born woman who traveled to Syria to join the Islamic State (ISIS) group and now wants to return to her family in Alabama is not a U.S. citizen.

U.S. District Court Judge Reggie Walton dismissed a lawsuit brought by the family of Hoda Muthana to force the federal government to let her in the country.

Muthana, 25, currently lives with her 2-year-old son in a refugee camp in Syria and has since repudiated the terrorist group. A court motion said she and child, identified only as John Doe, were moved from the Roj refugee camp after receiving death threats from ISIS supporters and that their lives are in danger, The New York Times reported.

“The citizenship status of minor John Doe depends upon the status of Ms. Muthana; accordingly, regardless of the choices made by his mother, the health and survival of a young U.S. citizen depends upon the expeditious resolution of Ms. Muthana’s civil case,” the claim said.

In addition to dismissing a lawsuit, Walton also ruled that Muthana’s father, Ahmed Ali Muthana, could not provide financial support to his daughter or grandson without being subject to charges of providing material support of terrorism.

‘South Park’ Episode Brutally Mocks Transgender Athletes Competing in Women’s Sports

The creators of “South Park” mocked the notion of transgender athletes competing in women’s sports for the seventh episode of their twenty-third season on Wednesday night.

The episode, titled “Board Girls,” featured a transgender character that closely resembles late wrestling icon Randy Savage, who played a leading role in the episode.

The Savage-like character — called Heather Swanson — is featured alongside Strong Woman, an elementary school principal teacher who enters a Strongwoman Competition. During the competition, a newscaster asks Strong Woman her thoughts about transgender people competing in women’s sports. She responds by saying that she’s in favor of the inclusive movement.

Swanson, who says she began identifying as female just two weeks prior to the competition, told the newscaster that she was at the competition to dominate. . .

Swanson, naturally, wins all of the Strongwoman competitions and goes on to pick fights with characters who don’t support his transition or his choice to compete in women’s sports. Swanson goes on to call the principal of the elementary school a “transphobe,” and it’s later revealed that Swanson is actually one of Strong Woman’s ex-boyfriends who has sworn revenge on the woman who embarrassed him years back.

Report: High School Teacher Arrested for Threatening to Shoot Students

A high school geometry teacher in Washington state has been arrested and booked on several charges, after allegedly threatening to shoot students at Emerald Ridge High School in Puyallup. . .

The Pierce County Sheriff’s Office said Julie Hillend-Jones, 58, was arrested at her home Wednesday morning, when law enforcement questioned her about alleged threats she made the night before while speaking to another adult.

PCSD Detective Ed Troyer told KING-TV that Hillend-Jones “didn’t back off” from the threats she made when investigators pressed her on the claims.

“Everybody knows you don’t talk about guns or make any threats in school,” Troyer said. “If the student does it, they’re going to jail. Now we have a teacher doing it. They’re also going to jail, so she’s been booked into the Pierce County Jail.”

Hillend-Jones was immediately placed on administrative leave Tuesday evening, after her alleged threats were reported to school officials. Now, she faces at least one felony charge of threatening to bomb or injure property. (Read more from “Report: High School Teacher Arrested for Threatening to Shoot Students” HERE)

State Health Department Allows Illegal Abortion Clinic to Continue Killing Babies up to Birth

A late-term abortion facility in Ohio will remain open despite repeatedly failing to comply with the law.

Back in 2016, the Ohio Department of Health revoked the license of the Women’s Med Center in Kettering, near Dayton, for failing to have a written transfer agreement with a hospital for patient emergencies. Since then, the abortion facility and health officials have been battling in court over its license.

On Wednesday, however, Ohio Right to Life learned that the department granted a new license to the abortion facility.

“Women’s Med Center has struggled for years to meet the same requirements that all other ambulatory surgical facilities are required to meet. These laws were put in place to protect women,” said Stephanie Ranade Krider, vice president of Ohio Right to Life. “The fact that Martin Haskell continues to seek exceptions to basic health and safety rules shows where his true priorities lie: protecting his abortion business.”

Earlier this month, LifeNews reported the Ohio Supreme Court denied a request for appeal from Haskell in a court battle over its license. The news brought hope to pro-life advocates that the abortion facility would close soon.

Twins Born at 23 Weeks Were Given Just 1 Percent Chance to Survive, but They Defied the Odds

Twins Joe and Ashley Keates entered the world on April 16 weighing less than 1 pound each and fitting in their mother’s hand.

Doctors gave them just a 1 percent chance of survival, but today they are thriving at home with their family, the Daily Mail reports. . .

The baby boys are believed to be the smallest premature twins ever to survive in England after they were born at just 23 weeks of pregnancy, according to the reports.

Earlier this year, their mother said Joe’s amniotic sac burst, prompting the twins’ early delivery. Joe weighed 15.1 ounces (0.95 pounds), and Ashley weighed 14.2 ounces (0.9 pounds), according to the report. . .

The boys surprised everyone with their fighting spirit, and, after 129 days in intensive care, they grew well enough to go home with their parents and older siblings, the report states. Ashley now can wear newborn clothes and his brother is wearing clothes for 0-3-month-old babies, their mother said.
