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.

Portrait of Texas School Shooter Emerges in Wake of Tragedy

Authorities still have plenty of explaining left to do.

Published

on

While some in American politics continue to obsess over the instruments of tragedy, there are others who are looking to the impetus for these actions, in hopes that we can discover the reason for the uptick in violence in America.

Mass shootings are a problem in America, and no one is denying that.  The political fracas we face today is not so much about declaring our disgust as it is about discovering the reason for these tragedies, as we already understand how they are committed.

And in that pursuit, we must examine deeply the background of those who commit such atrocities.

Authorities identified Salvador Ramos as the shooter who opened fire in Robb Elementary in Uvalde, Texas, on Tuesday. The 18-year-old shot and killed at least 19 students and two teachers, Fox News confirmed.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott identified Ramos as the shooter and said the Uvalde local entered the school grounds and proceeded to open fire. Abbott also said the shooter is dead and is believed to have acted alone.

There were some clues online, it seems.

Ramos allegedly posted disturbing images online before the shooting, and apparently messaged a woman about his plans before he carried out the deadly attack.

An Instagram account allegedly connected to Ramos featured disturbing photos, including one showing a high-capacity magazine. The Instagram account has since been taken down.

The same account allegedly sent alarming messages to a woman before the deadly attack. The first message, sent on May 12, asked, “You gonna repost my gun pics?” The woman was tagged in photos showing guns.

Authorities have yet to declare a motive in the case, leaving many to wonder what could have driven Ramos to such horrid behavior.
