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.

Hundreds of Woke Corporations Sign Letter Opposing Election Reform Laws

Hundreds of anti-American, woke corporations have signed onto a letter opposing the election reform laws

Hundreds of anti-American, woke corporations have signed onto a letter opposing the election reform laws being crafted and passed in red states. Big companies including Amazon, BlackRock, Google, and Warren Buffett claim to be standing against “discriminatory legislation” that makes it “harder for people to vote.” This, of course, is a flat out lie pushed by extreme leftists. Not one red state is looking to make it harder for anyone to vote. According to the New York Times, “It was the biggest show of solidarity so far by the business community as companies around the country try to navigate the partisan uproar over Republican efforts to enact new election rules.” The Times added: The statement was organized in recent days by Kenneth Chenault, a former chief executive of American Express, and Kenneth Frazier, the chief executive of Merck. A copy appeared on Wednesday in advertisements in The New York Times and The Washington Post. Last month, with only a few big companies voicing opposition to a restrictive new voting law in Georgia, Mr. Chenault and Mr. Frazier led a group of Black executives in calling on companies to get more involved in opposing similar legislation around the country. This is just another example of these anti-American, left-wing corporations working to make an end-run around the U.S. Constitution to force a hardcore, leftist philosophy onto this country. https://twitter.com/dgelles/status/1382293992705028100 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.

POLL: Most Americans Still Believe Democrats and Biden Cheated in 2020 Election

2020 election

A new poll finds that the majority of Americans still think that Joe Biden did not legally win the 2020 election despite the crack down by Big Tech and the drumbeat from the left-wing media trying to force Americans into believing that Biden won. A new Rasmussen poll finds that most Americans still believe that fraud played a big part in Joe Biden’s “win” last year. Per Rasmussen: Most voters say it’s more important to prevent cheating in elections than to make it easier to vote and, by more than a two-to-one margin, they reject claims that voter ID laws are discriminatory. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 29% of Likely U.S. Voters say laws requiring photo identification at the polls discriminate against some voters. Sixty-two percent (62%) say voter ID laws don’t discriminate. The pill adds: “A majority (51%) of voters believe it is likely that cheating affected the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, including 35% who say it’s Very Likely cheating affected the election.” And… Seventy-four percent (74%) of Republicans believe it is likely last year’s presidential election was affected by cheating, a view shared by 30% of Democrats and 51% of voters not affiliated with either major party. The poll was taken of 1,000 respondents on April 11 and 12. Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
