Mexican Marines Executed Three U.S. Citizens

January 27th, 2018

Via: Newsweek:

Three U.S. siblings found dead in Mexico in 2014 were executed by Mexican marines and a border mayor’s paramilitary security team, the country’s National Human Rights Commission said Thursday.

Erica Alvarado Salinas, 26, Alex Alvarado, 22, and Jose Angel Alvarado, 21, all American citizens, disappeared on October 13, 2014, while visiting their father in El Control, a small town near Matamoros, a Mexican city in the dangerous state of Tamaulipas, across the border from Brownsville, Texas.

The siblings were en route to their mother’s home in Progreso, Texas, but they never made it across the border.

Three Pennsylvania teens charged with purposely exposing classmate to pineapple

Three teenage girls are facing multiple felony charges after reportedly devising a plan to expose their classmate, who is allergic to pineapples, to pineapple juice.

According to Pittsburgh police, the girls had knowledge of their classmate’s allergy when they came up with the idea, WBUT reported. 

“It’s well-known at the school,” Lt. Matt Pearson, an officer in Butler township, told the local station. “They don’t even serve pineapple during this specific lunch period because of the severe allergy.”

But that didn’t stop three girls from exposing the 14-year-old student to the tropical fruit during lunch on Dec. 14. And according to local authorities, the girls used a high-five to trigger their classmate’s allergic reaction.

“The suspect got the pineapple from another student, put the pineapple residue all over her hand, and got the victim to give her a ‘high-five’,” Pearson said.

After the victim began to experience an allergic reaction from the residue, she was rushed to the school’s nurse to be administered an epinephrine pen, the Butler Eagle reported. Shortly after receiving the injection she was taken to a  hospital nearby via ambulance. Fortunately, she was released from the hospital later that evening.

According to WPXI, the 14-year-old girl who intentionally exposed her classmate to the residue has been charged with criminal conspiracy, aggravated assault, simple assault, reckless endangerment, harassment and disorderly conduct.

And police say the other two girls, ages 13 and 14, have also been charged with criminal conspiracy, disorderly conduct, and reckless endangerment after helping their friend plan the assault.

Evening News Cover Women’s March Three Times More Than March for Life

For a second year, the networks are favoring a march supporting abortion and other lefty causes over a march for life.

During their Saturday news shows the first evening of the Women’s March, ABC, CBS and NBC spent a total of 6 minutes, 43 seconds highlighting the event. In comparison, following Friday’s March for Life, the three broadcast networks spent just 2 minutes, 6 seconds on the pro-life rally.



On Saturday, Jan. 20, several cities, including Washington, D.C. and New York City, hosted their second annual Women’s March calling for “Power to the Polls.”

The first Women’s March, held the day after President Trump’s inauguration, aimed to mobilize women to tell the new administration that “women’s rights are human rights.” Except, according the march’s pro-abortion platform and its behavior towards pro-life organizations, “women” doesn’t include all women. That became even clearer when organizers removed pro-life group New Wave Feminists from its partner list last year.

And in the case, when it comes to time, the networks prioritized abortion supporters.

According to organizers, more than 100,000 Americans attended the 45th March for Life on Jan. 19. The rally condemns abortion around the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, which legalized abortion in the U.S. But while the largest annual march in Washington, D.C. regularly attracts massive crowds, the networks refuse to give them – and the unborn they march for – the coverage they deserve.



Before the main Women’s March event even happened (scheduled for Sunday in Las Vegas), the news shows already covered the Women’s March three times more than the 2018 March for Life.

During Saturday’s Nightly News, NBC dedicated a whopping 2 minutes, 42 seconds to the Women’s March – more than the total the March for Life received Friday night. Anchor José Díaz-Balart remarked how women “took to the streets today, as they did a year ago, to demand equality, justice and social and political change.”



Form there, correspondent Morgan Radford reported on the “army of marchers” in “hundreds of cities” to demand “change in Washington.” She went on to interview Whoopi Goldberg, the founders of the Women’s March and Virginia delegate Kelly Fowler, who ran for office after last year’s march. NBC even played a clip of her young daughter wearing a sign reading, “Trump is mean.”

“An inspiration for millions of women hoping to change the face of politics,” Radford said of Fowler.

CBS followed NBC timewise, with a 2 minute, 2 second segment on the Women’s March during Evening News. Anchor Reena Ninan brought up the “thousands” of marchers who focused on “having their voices heard in November midterm elections.”

Reporter Paula Reid described them as a “sea of pink hats” who, in Washington, D.C., chanted, “Lock him up” of the president. She interviewed Emily’s List president Stephanie Schriock on how her organization, which trains “democratic, pro-choice” women to run for office.

Reid also gave assurance to critics – by interviewing one marcher who claimed everyone was welcome.

“The Women’s March has been criticized for only representing women on one side of the aisle, opposing a Republican president and then pushing for only Democratic candidates,” Reid admitted.

For World News Tonight, ABC spent 1 minutes 59 seconds. Following anchor Tom Llamas’ introduction, correspondent Eva Pilgrim reported on the “hundreds of thousands” of women with “crowds significantly larger this year” with 200,000 in New York. (Though there were certainly fewer in Washington, D.C. – something she didn’t say.)

“This crowd stretches for as far as the eye can see in both directions,” she stressed. “Everyone here marching for change.”



She concluded by saying that the crowd presented “lessons from the past and hope for the future,” and interviewed a marcher who compared the Women’s March to her mother marching in the ‘60s for “abortion rights.”

During their morning and evening news shows for the past five years (2013 – 2017, the broadcast networks have offered fewer than 24 minutes to the March for Life. To put that in perspective, ABC, CBS and NBC spent more than three times that on the Women’s March in 2017 alone, with 1 hour, 15 minutes, 18 seconds.

With their evening shows immediately following the 2018 March for Life on Friday, the networks combined spent a mere 2 minutes, 6 seconds on the pro-life rally. The networks that follow President Trump’s every move couldn’t devote more time to the event making history: for the first time ever, the president addressed the March for Life live via satellite.

Methodology: MRC Culture watched the evening news shows from the three broadcast networks (ABC, CBS and NBC) directly following the March for Life on January 19, 2018. MRCC also watched those same evening news shows from ABC and NBC directly following the Women’s March on January 20, 2018. For CBS, MRCC watched the Women’s March Evening News segment online (only local news aired on east coast). Teasers to segments were not included in the time tally.

Re: France remembers Charlie Hebdo victims three years after attacks

French President Emmanuel Macron led a sombre tribute on Sunday to the 17 victims of attacks in Paris three years ago that marked the first of a wave of deadly militant assaults in France.

During a three-day killing spree in January 2015, gunmen killed reporters and illustrators at satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, police officers and shoppers at a Jewish supermarket.

Sunday’s commemoration started at the former premises of Charlie Hebdo, where two brothers armed with assault rifles shot and killed 11, including most of the notoriously irreverent publication’s cartoonists and writers.

The names of the victims were read out before wreathes were laid in front of the office building, including one by Macron and Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo.

Homage was then paid at the nearby site where a policeman was shot dead at point-blank range by one of the gunmen.

Opinion: The victims of the ‘Je suis Charlie’ era

A similar tribute was later held at the kosher store where a third gunman killed four people.

The Charlie Hebdo attack was carried out by brothers Said and Cherif Kouachi, who died in a police assault two days later.

The perpetrator of the attack on the Jewish store, Amedy Coulibaly, also shot dead a policewoman in a separate incident. Coulbaly was also killed by police
