Couple Bikes Through Middle East to Prove People Are Kind, ISIS Decided To Butcher Them

Published

on

People are not always what they seem to be and there is a lot of evil out in the world. It seems an increasingly dangerous place these days. My personal opinion is that evil is not a complexity of humans, but instead a state of being for which an individual is responsible for. Unfortunately, a young, idealistic American couple decided to bike through the Middle East to prove to people how kind others are and instead learned just how very wrong they were. There are some mistakes you don’t come back from.

Jay Austin and Lauren Geoghegan, both 29, decided last year that they had had it with the daily grind and they quit their office jobs in Washington, DC. They then decided on taking the trip of a lifetime; a cycling trip around the world. Austin was a vegan who worked for the US Department of Housing and Urban Development and Geoghegan was a vegetarian who worked in the Georgetown University admissions office. These young altruistic liberals decided that they were wasting their lives working.

“There’s magic out there, in this great big beautiful world,” wrote Jay Austin who, along with his partner, Lauren Geoghegan, gave his two weeks’ notice last year before shipping his bicycle to Africa.

“I’ve grown tired of spending the best hours of my day in front of a glowing rectangle, of coloring the best years of my life in swaths of grey and beige,” Austin wrote on his blog before he quit. “I’ve missed too many sunsets while my back was turned. Too many thunderstorms went unwatched, too many gentle breezes unnoticed.” Noble sentiments unfortunately not shared by those he would soon encounter.

The young couple kept records of their year-long foray on Instagram and on a blog. According to the New York Times, they shared “the openheartedness they wanted to embody and the acts of kindness reciprocated by strangers.”

“You read the papers and you’re led to believe that the world is a big, scary place,” Austin wrote. “People, the narrative goes, are not to be trusted. People are bad. People are evil. I don’t buy it,” he went on. “Evil is a make-believe concept we’ve invented to deal with the complexities of fellow humans holding values and beliefs and perspectives different than our own… By and large, humans are kind. Self-interested sometimes, myopic sometimes, but kind. Generous and wonderful and kind.”

I wish that were always true. This couple’s fatal mistake was to believe their own prose about the nature of some humans in parts of some of the darkest places on the planet.

The tragic end for these two liberal dreamers came after they arrived in Tajikistan. That country faces a threat of terrorism and is near northern Afghanistan, which has a significant ISIS presence. They weren’t biking directly through ISIS territory, but in the end, it didn’t matter. As they rode their bikes on July 29th, a car rammed them, according to CBS News. Five ISIS members jumped out of the car and then proceeded to stab the couple to death. They also killed two other cyclists, one from Switzerland and the other from the Netherlands.

Just two days later, ISIS claimed credit by releasing a video that showed these same men posing in front of the group’s black Jihadist flag. They stared into the camera and vowed to kill “disbelievers.” There is little doubt it was indeed ISIS that took their lives. This could have happened anywhere, but the Middle East is prone to such attacks. It is not a safe place as many mistakenly believe. But then again, neither is Chicago.

From the New York Times:

“In the video released by the Islamic State after the couple’s death, the men pledging allegiance to the group can be seen sitting on a stone slab, an aquamarine lake partly visible over their left shoulders. It’s the kind of panorama that the young couple might have stopped to capture and post on their blog.

“But in the clip, when these men point to the scenery around them, they vow to slaughter the “disbelievers” who have overrun their land.”

This is the result of a liberal mindset that cannot come to terms with violent reality. There are those that wish to hurt others and that have evil intentions. It falls to each of us to protect ourselves and each other.

This is why conservatives believe in the Second Amendment so strongly. It’s also why the left calling to abolish ICE, their stance against police and their wild swing into unfettered socialism is patently insane. This couple learned how wrong they were too late. Hopefully, America as a whole will learn to face reality before we face a similar fate as a nation.

Don’t get me wrong. There is a great good in the world. But there is also great evil. Unfortunately for this couple, the latter found them.

President Trump Announced How He Just Got Mexico To Pay For The Wall

When President Trump said he would have Mexico pay for the wall on our southern border, he meant it. He just announced how they are going to do it too… through the USMCA (the revision of NAFTA). Which I suspect was the plan all along.

Very early this morning at about 4:38 am, Trump tweeted: “I often stated, “One way or the other, Mexico is going to pay for the Wall.” This has never changed. Our new deal with Mexico (and Canada), the USMCA, is so much better than the old, very costly & anti-USA NAFTA deal, that just by the money we save, MEXICO IS PAYING FOR THE WALL!”

For those doubters on Twitter (and you will see some of them below), I highly doubt the plan was ever to have Mexico pay for the wall up front. We would fund the wall and recoup the funding from Mexico. I don’t see what is so hard to understand about that. But it seems to be a financial move many can’t seem to grasp and that is beyond their comprehension.

SIGN PETITION DEMANDING TRUMP BUILD THE WALL 75,000 HAVE SIGNED

I fully support that if Congress just won’t fund the wall, having the military build it through Pentagon funding and then reimbursing them for it. Why? Because it is a national security issue and always has been. That border is a clear and present danger.

Why shouldn’t Trump have Mexico pay through the USMCA? And why all the negativity from people who are obviously poorly informed and just politically biased? They let their hate for the president dictate all their thoughts and actions rather than looking at the mechanics of the move and the benefits from it. I just don’t get these people. They have not even given this a chance and already they are shooting it down. That’s a leftist for you.

Check out the moves on Twitter over this:

Most of these people don’t seem to get that a great deal of the funding for the wall was approved before Trump started all of this. I have never seen so many people so intent on leaving themselves open to attack. What a bunch of foolish, self-involved individuals. Just sad. Build the wall whatever it takes and do it fast before one of our many enemies gets a chance to severely cripple this nation once again.

Illegal Invader Collides With Major Karma After Leaving Church – Should’ve Listened!

Published

on

An illegal alien was busted in North Carolina last week after leaving a church to meet for a scheduled appointment with immigration officials. Samuel Oliver-Bruno, 47, was evidently living for almost a year in the basement of a Methodist church while trying to get his deportation to Mexico delayed. ICE doesn’t make arrests in churches so they waited until he left this one.

Oliver-Bruno was asked to provide his fingerprints to move his petition forward. He was promptly arrested in the USCIS office when he arrived. To be fair, this guy is a convicted criminal and is not some innocent victim here. Clergy from the church formed a human wall around the vehicle taking him to detention, singing “Amazing Grace” and chanting “Let him stay!” Several were arrested. The Hill has more on this misguided intervention:

An undocumented man was arrested in North Carolina on Friday after leaving a church to meet for a scheduled appointment with immigration officials, The News & Observer reported.

Samuel Oliver-Bruno, 47, was living in the basement of Durham’s CityWell United Methodist Church for nearly a year while he petitioned for his deportation to Mexico to be delayed. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement does not make arrests in churches.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services asked Oliver-Bruno to appear in person to provide his fingerprints in order for his petition to be processed. He was then arrested inside the USCIS office, the paper reported.

“Mr. Oliver-Bruno is a convicted criminal who has received all appropriate legal process under federal law, has no outstanding appeals, and has no legal basis to remain in the U.S.,” U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokesperson Bryan Cox told The News & Observer in a statement.

Faith leaders and church members who had accompanied Oliver-Bruno formed a human wall around the vehicle taking him to detention, singing “Amazing Grace” and chanting “Let him stay!” Several were arrested, according to CNN.

“It was presented as a legitimate appointment but ICE utilized due process as bait,” Cleve May, a pastor at the church, told CNN. “So we went to the appointment with him, to offer protection, knowing that ICE could not be trusted. We were thinking we would be in and out in 30 minutes.”

Reps. David Price (D-N.C.) and G.K. Butterfield (D-N.C.) released a joint statement following  Oliver-Bruno’s arrest, saying the man was “entrapped” and vowing to fight his arrest.

“Samuel’s sudden and inappropriate arrest in the middle of the Thanksgiving season reflects the callous and cruel approach we’ve come to expect from the Trump administration. As Members of Congress representing the Durham community, we will continue to do everything in our power to keep the Oliver-Bruno family together,” they said.

“In a call with us this afternoon, ICE has committed to allow Mr. Oliver-Bruno to remain in the U.S. in detention while his case is adjudicated. While this means he will not be immediately deported, we remain committed to fighting for his release.”

Oliver-Bruno was arrested in El Paso, Texas, in 2014 after using a Texas birth certificate to enter the U.S., according to CNN. He lived for 11 months in sanctuary at the Durham church, where he helped with renovations, including a bedroom and shower after CityWell agreed to take him in the facility.

Oliver-Bruno said he feared he will be deported, leaving behind his son and wife, who has lupus and depends on her husband financially, the News & Observer reported.
