Two men shoved him in front of a train and are already free again: Now the victim speaks

Dresden — When the S-Bahn rushed towards him, René J. (40) stood in the track bed as if paralyzed: “I thought, this is it.” — the Dresdener wound up his life. Only the engine driver’s quick reaction saved the family father — emergency braking!
The two attackers who nudged him onto the tracks were arrested — and let go again (TAG24 reported). Inconceivable for the victim: “In my eyes it was attempted murder!”

The S-Bahn stop Zschachwitz on Sunday. Two days after the stunning deed. René’s hand is shaking, he points to the spot one meter lower on the track bed: “They would not let me up again. I will never forget their faces…”
USAID Should Further U.S. Interests, Not ‘Safe Spaces’
The foreign-aid budget is vital. But it includes plenty that’s wasteful and counterproductive.
March 20, 2017
Mr. Moyar is author of “Aid for Elites: Building Partner Nations and Ending Poverty through Human Capital” (Cambridge University Press, 2016).
The Trump administration’s new budget outline calls for a 28% cut in funding for the State Department and the U.S. Agency for International Development. Defenders of USAID insist that foreign aid is vital to advancing U.S. interests. They’re right—but there’s also plenty of waste.
On its website, USAID explains that the “Purple My School” program, a joint venture with the United Nations, “encourages peers, teachers and parents to become allies of LGBTI students” in eight Asian countries. “Through teachers’ facilitation, students discuss issues surrounding homophobia, how to create safe spaces for LGBTI students, and are encouraged to wear, draw, or make something purple.” (The acronym stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex.)
To promote transgender rights in Central America, USAID has “helped Guatemala’s Election Tribunal update election manuals and provide trainings to electoral officials on how to be sensitive to people whose appearances are not congruent with the birth name on their personal identification card.”
Democrats Turn Against Israel
In 1972 ours was the first party to back moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.
Rep. Keith Ellison’s selection as deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee is the latest ratification of our party’s turn away from Israel. Mr. Ellison, who complained in 2010 that “United States foreign policy in the Middle East is governed by what is good or bad through a country of seven million people,” narrowly lost a bid for DNC chairman, then was chosen by acclamation as deputy.
The Democrats used to be the pro-Israel party. President Truman recognized the Jewish state within minutes of its independence in 1948. In 1972 the convention that nominated George McGovern ratified the first major-party platform to support moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. The Republicans didn’t follow until 1996.
A lot has changed for the Democrats in 45 years. President Obama created an atmosphere of outright hostility between the U.S. and Israel. He made a nuclear deal with Iran and refused to veto the United Nations Security Council resolution in December that condemned settlements in the disputed West Bank.
These are the promises that Trump ran and won on. Call or write to your representatives in congress if you agree that these cuts need to be made. Without those of us at the grassroots letting our voices be heard, congress won’t have the backbone to do this.

Congress Demands Investigation Into Obama Admin Meddling in
Obama admin gave taxpayer money to Soros to spark leftist political revolution
BY: Follow @Kredo0
A group of leading senators is calling on newly installed Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to immediately launch an investigation into efforts by the Obama administration to sway foreign elections by sending taxpayer funds to “extreme and sometimes violent political activists” that promote leftist causes, according to a copy of the letter.
The lawmakers disclosed multiple conversations with foreign diplomats who outlined active political meddling by the Obama administration’s State Department, including the use of taxpayer funds to support leftist causes in Macedonia, Albania, Latin America, and Africa.
A portion of this State Department funding appears to have gone to organizations supported by the controversial liberal billionaire George Soros, according to the letter, which was authored by Republican Sens. Mike Lee (Utah), Jim Inhofe (Okla.), Thom Tillis (N.C.), Ted Cruz (Texas), David Perdue (Ga.), and Bill Cassidy (La.).
The senators are asking Tillerson to launch a full-scale investigation into these funding efforts in order to determine how exactly the Obama administration sought to promote left-leaning causes and political parties across the globe.

Limbaugh: WikiLeaks Revelation That CIA Mimics Russian Hackers Changes Narrative
“Folks, we are in the midst of dangerous times…”
Packed away in the thousands of documents released by WikiLeaks Tuesday was one that fascinated talk show host Rush Limbaugh because it links to the narrative of alleged connections between Russia and President Donald Trump’s campaign.
“Folks, we are in the midst of dangerous times like you cannot believe, and Donald J. Trump is the target,” he said.
Limbaugh noted that in the documents showing how the CIA hacks a vast array of electronic devices was evidence that the CIA often mimics Russian hackers.
