DOJ Charges Venezuela’s Maduro With Narcoterrorism

Attorney General William Barr announced narcoterrorism charges against Venezuelan socialist leader Nicolas Maduro for his role in facilitating the global drug trade in coordination with the Colombia-based terrorist group known as the FARC.

Investigators said Maduro and his co-conspirators were being charged with conspiracy to commit narcoterrorism, conspiracy to import hundreds of tons of cocaine into the United States, and a variety of weapons charges.

U.S.-Born ISIS Bride’s Attempt to Get Back Into Country Crushed By Judge

Last week, NBC News offered another sympathetic interview to Hoda Muthana, the New Jersey-born daughter of a Yemeni diplomat who left Alabama in 2014 to join the Islamic State in Syria and subsequently married three terrorists. Though she helped the terrorist group carry on its barbaric campaign for years and infamously tweeted in 2015 to American-based jihadists, “Go on drive-bys and spill all of their blood,” she told NBC she deserves “a second chance” because she “regrets every single thing.”

On Thursday, a judge ruled against Muthana and in favor of the Trump administration, which contends that she is not in fact a U.S. citizen because she was born on American soil while her father still had diplomatic status in the U.S. Read more…

Reports Shed Light On China’s Organ Harvesting Practices

There’s a reason it’s so easy and quick to get an organ transplant in China – and it’s not because the nation has so many people. It’s because, according to multiple reports, the country uses its concentration camps as organ-harvesting farms, forcefully removing organs from prisoners, some of whom were still alive when the procedures took place.

Jennifer Zeng, a Falun Gong practitioner, told Fox News that she was arrested for her spirituality, and interrogated at one of China’s labor camps. While being questioned about her medical history, she told officers she had hepatitis C. She believes this is what kept the Chinese government from harvesting her organs. Read more…
