Somali Muslim militants kill 3, injure others on 2 Kenyan buses
They killed three and injured several others. Among the dead were two security officers of the escort team guarding the convoy who were shot as they approached to rescue the passengers.
No doubt the Muslim militants attacked in an area where there was no cell phone coverage.
Nathan Johnson, ICC’s Regional Manager for Africa, said, “This recent attack comes just two months after five passengers were killed and dozens were severely injured” in another bus along the same route.
Psalm 34:16 says, “The face of the Lord is against evildoers, to cut off the memory of them from the earth.”
G7 leaders urged to build countries back in more “feminine way”
Last Friday, the Group of 7 world leaders converged on Carbis Bay, a seaside resort and village in Cornwall, England, for talks about fighting the coronavirus and global poverty as well as advancing the Green Agenda. The G7 countries include Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, the host, mapped out his vision.
JOHNSON: “As G7, we are united in our vision for a cleaner, greener world, a solution to the problems of climate change. I think that is what the people of our countries now want us to focus on. They want to be sure that we’re beating the pandemic together, but also that we’re building back better together and building back greener and building back fairer, and building back more equal, actually in a more gender-neutral and, perhaps, more feminine way — how about that? — apart from anything else. So, those are some of the objectives that we have before us at Carbis Bay.”
Downing Street insisted the bizarre plea referred to $606 million of funding that the British government pledged toward girls education in poor nations.
No doubt Prime Minister Johnson’s opening vision statement is reflective, in part, of his new bride, the former Carrie Symonds, who is known for her environmentalist activism through Oceana and other liberal issues. They just got married on May 29, 2021 after brazenly living in sin.
VP Harris snaps at Latina Univision anchor & Lester Holt over border
Vice President Kamala Harris snapped at a Latina Univision anchor last Wednesday, when pressed to answer when she would be visiting the southern border.
HARRIS: “I said I’m gonna go to the border. And …”
REPORTER: “When are you going to the border Vice President?”
HARRIS: “The administration has asked. I’m not finished. (chuckles) I said I’m going to the border. And also, if we are going to deal with the problems at the border, we have to deal with the problems that cause people to flee to the border.”
President Biden ripped up former President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy which was wildly successful at dramatically disincentivizing people from trying to illegally gain entry into the U.S.
Vice President Harris was equally condescending with NBC anchor Lester Holt as he interviewed her in Guatemala. It aired last Tuesday on the Today show.
HOLT: “Why not visit the border? Why not see what Americans are seeing in this crisis?”
HARRIS: “Well, we are going to the border. We have to deal with what’s happening at the border. There’s no question about that. That’s not a debatable point.”
HOLT: “Do you have any plans to visit the border?”
HARRIS: “At some point, you know, we are going to the border. We’ve been to the border. So, this whole, this whole, this whole thing about the border. We’ve been to the border. We’ve been to the border.”
HOLT: “You haven’t been to the border!”
HARRIS: “And I haven’t been to Europe. I mean, I don’t know, I don’t understand the point that you’re making. I’m not discounting the importance of the border.”
HOLT: “I know Republicans have certainly come at you on this. But Democratic Congressman [Henry] Cuellar has a border district, has said to you and the president, ‘Come. You need to see this!’”
HARRIS: “I care about what’s happening at the border. I’m in Guatemala because my focus is dealing with the root causes of migration.”
Proverbs 29:2 declares, “When the godly are in authority, the people rejoice. But when the wicked are in power, they groan.”

TX Governor: I’ll build border wall on Texas/Mexico border
In a related story, because the Biden-Harris administration refuses to secure our southern border, Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott said the State will immediately begin building border barriers in areas where migrants can easily cross the Rio Grande border with Mexico. The barriers will, in part, enable state law enforcement to arrest migrants for violations of state law, reports Breitbart.com.
The governor picked Del Rio, Texas as the location for his announcement due to the massive increases in illegal border crossings in this region.
ABBOTT: “Change is needed to fix the border crisis problem. (applause) These challenges that we’re talking about are a direct result of the open border policies in place right now. Look at the numbers to see it. If you compare last April to this April, you see that last April there were about 17,000 people who were apprehended. This April, more than 170,000. That’s a 1,000% increase.”
The governor explained that the barriers serve two functions in the battle against illegal border crossings. The first is physical deterrence. The second, “If the [migrants] move or interfere with that barrier, they have committed several crimes.” Those crimes include criminal mischief, vandalism of state property, and criminal trespass. The punishment? Up to 180 days in jail.
Abbott said, “You’re not going to get a free pass to the U.S. They’re getting a straight pass to a jail cell.”

Rep. Chip Roy: Ban Communist Chinese from buying U.S. land
Roy stated, “In their quest for global domination, China has been buying up land and strategic infrastructure all over the world and in the United States. Direct Chinese investment in the U.S. economy is a major threat to the American way of life and requires that we take serious action to thwart the Chinese Communist party from ever seizing control of strategically valuable domestic assets in the U.S.”
