A War Criminal Next Door? 11 Counts

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

The trial was 3 weeks long and included witnesses and victims including child soldiers that described the most horrific crimes. His sentencing hearing is scheduled for October 15, 2018 and he faces 110 years in prison. Oh yeah, a $4 million fine in USD.

He was arrested in 2014 in Collingdale, Pennsylvania. The case was investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Homeland Security Investigations and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Liberian war criminal living in Delaware County convicted of immigration fraud and perjury

PHILADELPHIA – On July 3, 2018, a defendant in Collingdale, Pennsylvania was found guilty by a federal jury of immigration fraud and perjury charges, following a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) led investigation, with assistance from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Jucontee Thomas Woewiyu, 72, lied on his application for U.S. citizenship by denying that he advocated the overthrow of any government by force or violence and by denying that he ever persecuted any person because of membership in a social group or their political opinion.

Woewiyu is a founder and the former Minister of Defense, chief spokesperson, and negotiator for the National Patriotic Front of Liberia (NPFL), which was an armed rebel group led by Charles Taylor and committed to removing the Samuel Doe government forcibly from power in Liberia in the late 1980s and 1990s. On numerous occasions over the years, Woewiyu publicly confirmed his prominent position in the NPFL and advocated the overthrow of the Doe government by force or violence.

During the defendant’s tenure, the NPFL conducted a particularly heinous and brutal military campaign, characterized by torture, rape, forced sexual slavery, conscription of child soldiers, and murder. The jury heard evidence from almost twenty Liberians who lived through Liberia’s notoriously brutal first civil war, from 1989 through 1995. At trial, multiple individuals testified about being forced to become child soldiers under Woewiyu and the NPFL. Additionally, the jury heard testimony about NPFL soldiers cutting off victims’ body parts in front of Woewiyu, while others described checkpoints with skulls and severed heads on stakes (some still dripping with blood) and intestines for ropes, as well as the ethnically based massacre of a village at the hands of the NPFL.

“Today’s verdict clearly demonstrates that this nation will never be a safe haven for human rights violators and war criminals,” said Marlon V. Miller, Special Agent in Charge of HSI Philadelphia. “HSI will not allow our country to be a place where individuals seeking to distance themselves from their pasts can hide or evade detection.”

Since approximately Jan. 13, 1972, Woewiyu has had Lawful Permanent Resident status in the United States. On Jan. 23, 2006, Woewiyu applied for U.S. citizenship by submitting a Form N-400. On that form, and in his immigration in-person interview, Woewiyu swore and certified under the penalty of perjury that, among other things, he had never advocated (either directly or indirectly) the overthrow of any government by force or violence, and that he had never persecuted (either directly or indirectly) any person because of race, religion, national origin, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion.

After a three-week trial, the jury began its deliberations on Monday, July 2. The jury returned a verdict on July 3, finding the defendant guilty of two counts of fraudulently attempting to obtain citizenship, two counts of fraud in immigration documents, two counts of false statements in relation to naturalization, and five counts of perjury.

“The defendant’s tenure as Minister of Defense for the NPFL was marked by almost unimaginable violence and brutality,” said U.S. Attorney McSwain. “He attempted to evade all accountability for his gruesome and horrific crimes by fraudulently obtaining U.S. citizenship. Due to the hard work and perseverance of our prosecutors and law enforcement partners, he has nowhere left to hide. Finally, this defendant has been brought to justice. I hope the conviction today can provide some comfort, however belated, to all of his victims and their families.”

Since 2003, ICE has arrested more than 410 individuals for human rights-related violations of the law under various criminal and/or immigration statutes. During that same period, ICE obtained deportation orders against and physically removed 908 known or suspected human rights violators from the United States. Additionally, ICE has facilitated the departure of an additional 122 such individuals from the United States.

Currently, HSI has more than 135 active investigations into suspected human rights violators and is pursuing more than 1,750 leads and removals cases involving suspected human rights violators from 95 different countries. Since 2003, the HRVWCC has issued more than 75,000 lookouts for individuals from more than 110 countries and stopped over 260 human rights violators and war crimes suspects from entering the U.S.

ICE is committed to rooting out known or suspected human rights violators who seek a safe haven in the United States. ICE’s Human Rights Violators and War Crimes Center investigates human rights violators who try to evade justice by seeking shelter in the United States, including those who are known or suspected to have participated in persecution, war crimes, genocide, torture, extrajudicial killings, and the use or recruitment of child soldiers. These individuals may use fraudulent identities or falsified records to enter the country and attempt to blend into communities in the United States.


Only Uncle Tom Celebrating July 4th

By: Lloyd Marcus

American leftists cannot restrain themselves from throwing stink-bombs at all things wholesome and good. July 4th, my wife Mary read two articles in which black writers scolded blacks for celebrating Independence Day. They claim us blacks have nothing to celebrate because we we weren’t free in 1776.

Why are leftists so hellbent on instilling in me and my fellow blacks that America is not our country? America repented of her sins long ago. The Civil War was fought to liberate blacks from slavery. White abolitionists broke the law by teaching blacks to read. Affluent whites Etta Budd, Joseph Budd and Louis Pammel nurtured black American botanist and inventor George Washington Carver’s career. https://bit.ly/1NBBVtD

My point is American history is replete with Godly whites who helped blacks; sometimes risking everything. And yet, leftists have successfully sold blacks their lie that any success achieved by blacks is in spite of racist white America. Blacks are only 12% of the population. Much of black wealth in America is the result of white help and patronage.

White males have nurtured my career my entire life; such as Mr. Gomer, my 7th grade art teacher. Baltimore Mayor William Donald Schaefer met with me in his office for an hour and gave me a scholarship to the Maryland Institute College of Art. Ray Dell and Joe Canale owned sign companies where I worked during college. Barry Finglas of Park Sign Company hired me as the Art Director. After viewing my portfolio, John Holechek gave me free office space in his building to launch my own graphic design business. Chuck at Fred Kail Advertising mentored me, kicking my designer skills to a high professional level. Dick Weisberg hired me as the first black graphic designer on his team at WJZ-TV in Baltimore. All these allegedly “born-racist” successful white men were extremely good to me. https://nyp.st/2DBV1l8

Why can’t leftists allow us to get over all this divisiveness and live together as Americans? Racial harmony is the desire of most Americans as evidenced by the election of Barack Obama for two terms.

Myself and others have given history lessons in countless articles, confirming white American’s commitment to liberating blacks. The truth falls on deaf ears because leftists want to keep blacks hating whites and their country. Leftists believe if they can keep blacks believing white America seeks their demise, blacks will remain loyal Democrat voters.

Democrats in power will force leftists’ extreme radical, anti-Christian and anti-American ideas onto the masses with the government controlling every aspect of our lives. Democrats will make states affirm the LGBTQ agenda; force redistribution of wealth; repeal American’s right to bear arms; legalize abortion even on the date of birth and dish out healthcare dictating who lives or dies. https://bit.ly/2KCaQwi

July 4th, I released my music video, We Are Americans https://bit.ly/2KPas9M, honoring my God and my country. If angry bitter blacks choose to call me an Uncle Tom, I really do not care. America is the greatest land of opportunity on the planet for all who choose to go for it.

My late black dad was raised without his parents by his aunt. Beginning as a shoeshine boy at the Greyhound Bus Station in Baltimore, Dad rose to become Rev. Dr. Lloyd E. Marcus. From a black kid picking cotton, Clarence Thomas became a justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. That’s the greatness of America folks.

I am so weary of leftists relentlessly seeking to tear down my homeland. Attempting to educate leftists about the goodness of America is fruitless. They want to racially divide us. These evil people also seek to instill classy envy, entitlement mindsets and hatred for achievers. Leftists always appeal to our lower natures; our base instincts. Disgusting.

Rather than constantly rehashing distant historical wrongs, why aren’t leftists encouraging blacks to do what they can to help themselves today; stop murdering each other in record numbers https://bit.ly/2KTwATJ; stop dropping out of school; stop having babies out of wedlock and stop voting for Democrats.

African blacks sold blacks into the slave trade. https://cnn.it/2zhsFLR Therefore, blacks and white played roles in enslaving blacks in America. Insidiously, leftists portray slavery as a totally white thing.

Leftists impugn blacks who do not harbor cancerous resentments against white America. The American left seeks to con and guilt-trip white Americans into paying blacks reparations. My response to blacks demanding reparations is get off your lazy no-count derriere and get an education and a job. Nobody owes you anything!

True self-esteem, empowerment and dignity comes from earning one’s own way; not blaming or placing your success or failure in the hands of someone other than yourself. Leftists tell blacks whitey is responsible when you fail. This lie weakens rather than empowers blacks.

In the 1970’s, Joe was one of my fellow black students at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Raised by his grandmother, Joe was laser-focused on his studies. He became the first black art director at the prestigious W.B. Doner advertising agency in Baltimore. Dave was the most artistically gifted in our crew of black artists. Sadly, Dave frequently ranted about how whitey won’t give a black man a fair shake in this f****** country – you’ve got to steal as much as you can, when you can. Tragically, Dave never achieved his dreams and died young of a drug overdose.

Black Americans should kiss the ground they walk on in this country. Is there racism in America? Absolutely, along with every other sin under the sun. But the truth is there is not enough racism to stop anyone from achieving their American dream.

I feel a song coming on…

This is my country! Land of my birth!
This is my country! Grandest on earth!
I pledge thee my allegiance, America, the bold,
For this is my country to have and to hold.

I am a grateful black American who loves his country and proudly celebrated Independence Day. https://bit.ly/2KPas9M

Strong Jobs Data

By: Kent Engelke | Capitol Securities

In my view, June’s employment report was strong. Non-farm and private sector payrolls growth was greater than expected. Prior months’ gains were revised higher. Hiring in the manufacturing sector is at the fastest pace since 1998.

The unemployment rate rose to 4.0% from 3.8%, the result of more workers entering the work force. The increase in the labor participation rate to 62.9% from 62.7% is further evidence of workers reentering the workforce, the greatest participation since 2009. Historically, the LPR is around 66.5%-67%. This reentry of workers however is serving as a governor on wages as wage growth was slightly lower than expected.

I believe the data is the clearest indication the economy has finally reached the proverbial “escape velocity” inflection point or the juncture where growth is over a 3.0% sustainable rate.

Markets responded favorably to the data, ignoring the ongoing trade drama.

Radically changing topics, Bloomberg commented there is a massive slowdown of funds going into both mutual funds and ETFs. The newswire reported Vanguard — the world’s second largest money manager — collected 42% less money in both actively managed mutual funds and passive ETFs during the first six months of the year… $138 billion down from $237 billion. Wow!

Bloomberg further wrote total US funds flows — money going into exchange traded, active and passive mutual funds — fell by 50% [$200 billion versus $400 billion] as compared to the same period of 2017.

Wow! It is apparent the vast majority of funds — both new and existing — have gravitated to just four companies. Last week I referenced Goldman’s research stating four companies accounted for 88% of the S & P 500 gains. One company contributed 36% of these gains and another 18%. These companies are posting a 47% and 111% 2018 advance.

The companies referenced above are not explosive growth small capitalized companies. One is the third largest company in the S & P 500, while the other is the twenty-fifth largest entity. The increase in value of these two companies in 2018 is unfathomable… approximately $500 billion.

As noted above, total new 2018 funds in active and passive mutual funds was $200 billion. Wow! What myopicy!!!

Earnings season commences later this week with the release of several money center banks. How will the results be interpreted? Analysts are expecting a 20% increase in profits and a 9% gain in revenues.

Last night the foreign markets were up. London was up 0.28%, Paris was up 0.29% and Frankfurt was up 0.02%. China was up 2.47%, Japan was up 1.21% and Hang Sang was up 1.32%.

The Dow should open nominally higher as attention is now beginning to be focused upon earnings. The 10-year is off 8/32 to yield 2.86%.


WATCH: The truth behind the ‘Abolish ICE’ protest at the Statue of Liberty (video)

By: Renee Nal | New Zeal

Rise and Resist members at the Statue of Liberty on July 4 2018

On July 4 2018, members of a radical leftist group called “Rise and Resist” protested Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) at the Statue of Liberty. One of the Rise and Resist members, Patricia Okoumou, climbed the Statue of Liberty, which caused a major headache for park officials and police and made her an immediate star of the left.

“Rise and Resist” is an organization closely allied with another organization called “Gays Against Guns.” Jay W. Walker, wearing the pink shorts above, was interviewed with Patricia Okoumou by a gushing Joy Reid of MSNBC (see interview below). Jay Walker is also a “leader” of “Refuse Fascism,” a front group for an organization called the “Revolutionary Communist Party.” Incidentally, Refuse Fascism was initiated by a group of comrades which included Obama’s buddy Bill Ayers and radical professor Cornel West.

Joy Reid forgot to mention that part.

Jay W. Walker was a speaker at a REFUSE FASCISM event called “Fascism in America: Can It Happen Here? Is It Happening Here? What is the Danger the Trump/Pence Government Poses?” The event was held in New York City on April 27th, 2017 at the Church of The Village.

One of the more ridiculous articles was penned by Conor Friedersdorf of The Atlantic, who compared Patricia Okoumou to America’s founding fathers and called for charges to be dropped against her.

“Characterizing her expressive protest, Okoumou borrowed Michelle Obama’s bygone phrase, telling reporters Thursday, ‘When they go low, we go high.’ I went as high as I could.’ Right or wrong, she embodied the values of the place where she climbed, momentarily drawing the nation’s attention as if to a lit torch held high. A naturalized citizen who immigrated here from the Congo, she appears to be an exemplary fit for ‘the land of the free and the home of the brave.'”

The group “Rise and Resist” was created because initial founders were “astounded by the results of the 2016 presidential election” and so they formed “Rise and Resist” in order to “oust” President Trump among other vague communist-y objectives such as “equality” and “a wide variety of social justice issues.”

“Rise and Resist” was able to quickly receive 501 c(4) status.

Notably, Rise and Resist has teamed with the exceptionally radical and euphemistically-named “Democratic Socialists of America” for trainings like “Birddogging for Single Payer” and “Nonviolent Civil Disobedience Training.” The latter “training” was held at New York University’s Vanderbilt Hall. This author has a feeling NYU would not be cool with hosting a tea party meeting.

Rise and Resist has also held several rallies for uber “progressive candidates” such as Zellnor MyrieJessica Ramos, and Alessandra Biaggi just to name a few. Their candidates preferences are very specific – they are selecting radical progressives to oust democrats from New York’s Independent Democratic Conference (IDC), which they perceive as being too willing to work with Republicans.

Sporting her “White Supremacy is Terrorism” t-shirt, Patricia Okoumou fits right in with her comrades.

Watch Joy Reid gush all over Patricia Okoumou and her comrade Jay W. Walker.
