When It Comes to the Persecuted Church, Pence Is Determined to Keep Promises

If there is one humanitarian issue the US should be concerned with, it’s this one

As Americans debate amnesty for Mexican and Central American migrants in the US, there is a group of people across the globe that have been largely forgotten–or perhaps, ignored–by the international community: the persecuted Christians and Yadizi in the Middle East who have suffered severely under the terrible reign of ISIS in the region.

Mike Pence, however, upon discovering that a promise he made to ensure aid to these persecuted and displaced groups in Iraq has been stuck for months in a bureaucratic c gridlock, demanded results from the U.S. Agency for International Development, or USAID.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

“President Trump and Vice President Pence made restoring the rights and property of Iraq’s Christian and Yazidi communities, who were nearly wiped out by ISIS’s genocidal campaign against them, a top and unceasing priority of this administration,” Pence spokeswoman Alyssa Farah said in a statement Friday afternoon.

“The vice president will not tolerate bureaucratic delays in implementing the administration’s vision to deliver the assistance we promised to the people we pledged to help,” she added.

The Vice President, she said, has directed USAID Administrator Mark Green to travel to Iraq in the coming weeks to report back with an “immediate comprehensive assessment addressing issues that could delay the process of aid distribution.”

Green, in a statement also issued late Friday afternoon, said the organization has already channeled “tens of millions to the region, but we know the need is far greater, and that we must do more to meet the urge needs of the endangered populations—and we will.”

He promised to follow Pence’s orders to go to Iraq and report back with a “plan of action to accelerate aide to those in greatest need.”

A source familiar with the controversy over State Department, USAID, and UN hurdles that prevented these communities from receiving funding told the Free Beacon that Pence was “irate” to discover “the lack of progress in getting aid to Christian and Yazidi communities” and reports of “bureaucratic gridlock keeping much-needed aid from helpless Christian communities.”

These communities indeed were helpless as ISIS ravaged the region, decimating their populations and destroying their homes in a brutal campaign of unimaginable terror.

“ISIS’s campaign of murder, kidnapping, and enslavement radically reduced the Christian population in Iraq, which numbered between 1.4 million in 2002 and is now below 250,000, according to human rights groups who worked to chronicle the ISIS genocide in Iraq,” the Free Beacon says.

If there is one humanitarian issue the US should be concerned with, it’s this one. Good on Pence for seeing through his promise to lend sorely needed aid to the persecuted church and the victims of Islamic terror.

A very sick and twisted individual is sending out letters to those who are supporters of President Trump in the state of New Hampshire, threatening to burn their homes to the ground if he happens to lose the election but doesn’t concede. Local news outlets reported that the letter has been sent to various homes in the the town that have been displaying support for Trump. Here’s what the letter said via Daily Wire: Dear neighbor. You have been identified by our group as being a Trump supporter. Your address has been added to our database as a target when we attack should Trump not concede the election. We recommend that you check your home insurance policy and make sure that it is current and that it has adequate coverage for fire damage. You have been given “Fair Warning.” Always remember, it was “you” that started this Civil War. Be prepared to face the severe consequences of your pre-emptive actions against democracy. Brookline police Chief Bill Quigley confirmed two Trump supporters in his town also received the letter. “”I was kind of quite shocked that anyone would send a letter out with that type of threat,” he admitted. Quigley said he alerted the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, adding that the perpetrator could be charged with a serious crime. He explained, “Not only with us, with criminal threatening. It’s on a felony level, because of the threat of burning homes down and causing injury, but it could also be with the postal inspectors, something on the federal level.” “I was very taken aback. This is my home. You’re not supposed to threaten my home. I’m very worried in the sense that this is going on in my town,” Milford resident Kelly told the press. Milford is a small town with a…

Matthew McConaughey Tells Americans To ‘Embrace’ Results Of 2020 Election ‘Whichever Way It Goes’

Published

Actor Matthew McConaughey has a message for Americans ahead of the 2020 presidential election and to be honest, it’s one you probably wouldn’t have guessed would come from someone with his amount of Hollywood clout. We’re all so used to raging liberals just hating on the president for no logical reason that when someone from the entertainment industry actually offers some sort of reasonable response to the political madness of our time it takes you off guard. According to McConaughey, regardless of which way the election works out, Americans should “embrace” it. via Fox News: McConaughey, 50, promoted his new book “Greenlights” on “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday and spoke about his motto: “When faced with the inevitable, get relative.” Applying that motto to the race between President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, he said, “It’s not inevitable who’s going to win.” “After that happens, whether it’s an incumbent or whether it’s Biden, after it happens is when it’s time to get constructive and not be in denial,” McConaughey stated. “It’s time to get constructive and not deny the fact of whatever’s happened and embrace the situation,” he said speaking about the future president. “Whoever is going to be commander in chief and president of the United States of America, that’s not something, hopefully, that we’re going to deny or be able to argue,” the actor told the “Fox & Friends” crew. “I hope it’s a clean election,” McConaughey went on. “Whichever way it goes I hope it’s clean and that there’s no debate.” Now, embracing it doesn’t mean just going with the flow completely and not holding whoever wins up to the standards of morality and the Constitution. But it does mean not being a crybaby and throwing a fit, burning neighborhoods to the ground and looting…
