Births plunge to record lows in U.S.

By LEO HOHMANN

America has entered a demographic winter that should make every patriotic citizen shiver with concerns for their children’s future.

That is, if they have any children.

It’s a problem you won’t hear much about in the media but it’s been brewing for years. For many feminists, to even talk about it is tantamount to the unforgivable sin.

But all denials aside, this problem is as plain as the nose on little Johnnie’s face: The birth rate in these United States of America is imploding.

Somali gang members crash wedding party, terrify guests in New Hampshire

Uninvited guests drove from Columbus, Ohio

By LEO HOHMANN

Imagine going to the altar, say your vows, and just as you start to celebrate your big day, several members of a brutal street gang show up to your wedding party uninvited. Gunshots are fired, and fights break out.

That’s what police say happened recently in Concord, New Hampshire. When they responded they encountered rival Somali street gangs from another state, Ohio, resulting in sheer “chaos” that took two weeks to sort out.

First-ever Muslim candidate for Governor comes unhinged over question about Sharia

Abdul al-Sayed to GOP opponent: ‘You may not hate Muslims but Muslims definitely hate you!’

By LEO HOHMANN

Michigan’s first-ever Muslim candidate for governor, Dr. Abdul al-Sayed, took a shot at fellow gubernatorial candidate Patrick Colbeck on Thursday that some Republicans are saying went below the belt.

Colbeck, speaking at a candidate’s forum in East Lansing, expressed his concerns about Sharia law and the extremist Muslim Brotherhood’s tactic of civilization jihad. Colbeck took exception with an article he says was planted by Sayed supporters in the left-of-center website Buzzfeed,  which painted Colbeck as a fringe extremist using “unfounded conspiracy theories” against Sayed.

Rather than address Colbeck’s concerns, Sayed called Colbeck a racist Islamophobe whom Muslims “definitely hate.”

Sayed, 33, the former public-health director for the city of Detroit, was on stage Thursday at the Michigan Press Association with several other Democrat and Republican candidates for governor running in the Aug. 7 primary.

Sayed refused to answer a question from the moderator about the Islamic legal system known as Sharia, other than to say that, if elected, he would uphold the constitutions of the U.S. and State of Michigan.

“I take [the Constitution] particularly seriously because it guarantees me two things. A, the right to pray as I choose to pray, and for me that means I put my face on the ground 34 times a day,” Sayed said.  “Some people choose not to pray at all. Then in Article Six it also tells us that no religious test should be held over someone wishing to serve under this Constitution. It’s an incredible document.”

KENNESAW, Ga. — A suburban Atlanta shopping mall was the scene of a brazen attempt to kidnap a child Tuesday night, and one of the two suspects is behind bars, thanks to the quick action of the girl’s dad and a couple of Good Samaritans who happened to be in the right place at the right time.

An 11-year-old girl was ambushed inside the women’s bathroom by a man who held a knife to her throat, and police say she likely would have been kidnapped, or worse, if not for her loud screams and ability to escape the man’s clutches.

After that, her father and two other men made quick work of the suspect.

Danzell Mitchell, 26, is charged with attempted kidnapping, cruelty to children and other charges after he ambushed an 11-year-old girl in the women’s restroom at a popular mall in the suburban college town of Kennesaw Tuesday, May 8, 2018.

Cobb County police have 26-year-old Danzell Mitchell in custody but are still searching for a possible female accomplice, who is described as having dark hair and olive skin, possibly of Middle Eastern descent, said Sgt. Wayne Delk.

The woman is in her 30s, of thin build and wearing a pink shirt.

The incident happened about 6:30 p.m. at the Town Center Mall in Kennesaw, which is a college town about 25 miles northwest of Atlanta, the home of Kennesaw State University.

The girl was at the mall with her family, eating dinner in the bustling food court when she asked to go to the restroom. Her dad escorted her to the women’s restroom and waited outside the door. She told police she went into the bathroom, did not notice anyone else inside, and entered one of the stalls.

But when she came out of the stall, a black man grabbed her and held a knife to her throat.

“He told her not to scream, but of course she did scream and that startled him enough that she was able to get away from him,” Delk said.

She ran out to her father.

Less than a minute later, Mitchell exited the women’s restroom. The girl’s dad was waiting for him.

Walls and fences are not very popular with progressives when such structures are proposed by President Trump to keep drug dealers, terrorists, killers and human traffickers out of the U.S.

But when a fence is requested to protect an inner-city community of refugees and migrants, these same anti-Trumpers are all in.

How do we know that?

Perhaps the most perfect example of this double standard is playing out right now in Minneapolis’ Cedar Riverside area, otherwise known as “Little Mogadishu” for its high concentration of Somali refugees.

The Cedar High Apartments, a four-building complex comprised of 539 mostly one-bedroom units, will be getting a $825,000 security upgrade, compliments of the Democrat-run city Housing Authority, that involves building a 6-foot security fence around the public-housing property.
