Ukrainian Jews Told To Register Or Be Deported

Is history repeating itself?

Ukraine remembers Babi Yar massacreUkrainian Jews leaving Passover eve prayers were handed leaflets ordering them to either register with an interim government that is trying to make the eastern province of Donetsk Russian or face deportation.

Armed, masked men were waiting outside one synagogue, reports Ynet News, Israel’s largest news website, to hand worshipers the leaflets telling them to register with the forces who are trying to return the city to Russia.

The flyers said that all Jews in the province who are over the age of 16 must register, provide a list of property they own and pay a registration fee of about $50 or “else have their citizenship revoked, face deportation and see their assets confiscated.” (Bold type: mine)

The signature of Denis Pushilin, chairman of Donetsk’s temporary government, was on the leaflets. They were also distributed in other areas where pro-Russian activists have defied an ultimatum from Kiev to surrender, and asserted that Donetsk is an independent “people’s republic.”

Pushilin admitted the flyers came from his organization but disavowed the contents, which said that Jews were being ordered to register because of their support for the Bendery Junta, a reference to Stepan Bandera, the leader of the Ukrainian nationalist movement that fought for Ukrainian independence at the end of World War II.

The papers said the Jewish residents oppose Pushilin’s interim government, and they were told an “ID and passport are required to register your Jewish religion, religious documents of family members, as well as documents establishing the rights to all real estate property that belongs to you, including vehicles.”

Donetsk is home to some 4.3 million people, including an estimated 17,000 Jews, reports Ynet, and is home to much of Ukraine’s heavy industry, so it’s considered one of the biggest prizes of the region.  Read more at newsmax.com.

A Little ‘Happy’ Song for Your Tax Day

Here’s a little levity on Tax Day (if that’s possible).  You may rest assured, however, that every cent you pay will be put to good use.  And by the way, I’m sure all those folks out there with free cell phones are extending you their warm appreciation.  Whether or not you’ve heard Pharrell’s hit song “Happy,” you can appreciate this Tax Day parody by Reason’s Remy.

Company Tied to Reid’s Son Wants Land in Bundy Standoff

Bunndy Reid

Senator Harry Reid’s son, Rory, pictured with desert cattle and solar panels. A good mix?

As reported by godfatherpolitics.com:  Follow the money and you’ll inevitably find out what’s really going on.

In the case of Clark County, Nevada, rancher Cliven Bundy’s standoff with federal agents from the Bureau of Land Management, the leading explanation has been that he hasn’t paid grazing fees and his cattle threaten endangered desert tortoises in the Gold Butte area.

But the fact of the BLM bringing in hundreds of armed rangers with trucks and helicopters seemed over the top for protection of a tortoise that has clearly survived despite more than a century of ranching by the Bundy family, and which the BLM had previously been slaughtering with the excuse that it lacked funding to care for the animals.

As reported by the Associated Press in August, the Desert Tortoise Conservation Center in Southern Las Vegas, funded by the BLM, was looking at killing half of its 1,400 tortoises because it could not afford to keep its doors open since the housing collapse resulted in less income from developers.

35 ‘Acts of Love’

Face-Gash

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush insisted that many of the instances of illegal immigrants coming into the U.S. were “acts of love.” Though many of the human beings who enter the U.S. illegally or overstay their legally permitted time in the U.S. are doing so to earn more resources and provide for families, many of the illegal immigrants who come into the U.S. are doing so for highly criminal reasons–a fact often left out of the discussion or otherwise barely mentioned.

Breitbart Texas has provided 35 of these other “acts of love” for our readers.

1. Mexican Cartel Assassin Confirmed 11 Kills on US Soil, Confessed to More  Jose Manuel Martinez, a Mexican cartel assassin, had at least 11 confirmed kills. He is originally from Mexico but obtained legal status in the U.S.

2. Illegal Immigrant Allegedly Tried to Kill Texas Border Agent An illegal immigrant fought with a U.S. Border Patrol agent and allegedly attempted to take the agent’s gun and kill him. The illegal immigrant allegedly attempted to choke the agent as well.

3. Previously-Deported Illegal Alien Convicted of Child Human Trafficking An illegal immigrant operated a stash house in Houston, Texas containing two children and 24 others. The victims were held hostage in the underwear, occupying locked rooms with boards over the windows. Authorities described the living conditions in the home as ‘deplorable’.”  Read more at: breitbart.com.

Enemies of the State

Fox News:  Citizens put in the crosshairs of their own government – how could this be happening in America?

From the ATF to Homeland Security to environmental agencies, powerful forces are turning against Americans who thought the government was on their side.

The truth is, even in the representative democracy of the United States of America, if the government goes after you it can be a nightmare.

In this Fox News special, the Fox News Reporting team uncovers several alarming stories of government officials taking on private citizens who don’t believe they did anything wrong.

And that’s what makes it so scary – if it could happen to them, it could happen to anyone.

As you watch this presentation, please keep the following quote in mind:

“When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.” – Thomas Jefferson

Here is the complete Fox News Special broken down into six YouTube segments by the Mass Tea Party.  The documentary first aired on Saturday, March 5th, 2014.  Truth is stranger than fiction – and scarier:
