(Drudge) HUNDREDS DEAD… as Sri Lanka Points to Islamic Militants in Easter Attacks… (WSJ) At least 24 people in custody after 8 EXPLOSIONS… mostly around Colombo. (The Guardian) The bodycount has risen to at least 290 and 500 injured, in different churches and hotels on Easter Sunday, there were an initial six, followed by 2 more. One hotel manager said a suicide bomber got in line at a buffet and then unleashed devastation… blowing himself up he was called Mohamed Azzam Mohamed. Authorities said that another country had warned them on April 4th of potential attacks by the group National Throwheed Jamath, but the details were vague.
The GOVT SHUT down SOCIAL MEDIA… including FB and WhatsApp, which seems ridiculous IMO, supposedly to prevent misinformation and rumors… and communication among innocent people, smh. They also imposed a curfew.
(Reuters) This was the first major attack on the Indian Ocean Island since the end of their long civil war 10 years ago.
(Daily Mail) A six-foot pipe bomb was found at Sri Lanka’s main airport hours after the attacks.
Trump mistakenly tweeted 138 million were killed (an earlier bodycount was 138, but now that’s 290 or more). Several of those killed were Americans, some Chinese and others. Obama and Hillary called Christians “Easter worshippers” and never mentioned that they were Christians who were killed.
(Drudge) FBI ARRESTS LEADER OF GROUP STOPPING ILLEGALS IN NEW MEXICO (Reuters) The FBI on Saturday said it had arrested Larry Hopkins, the leader of an armed group that is stopping undocumented migrants after they cross the U.S.-Mexico border into New Mexico. This came days after the far-left American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) accused the group of illegally detaining migrants and New Mexico’s Democratic Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham ordered an investigation. A federal complaint charged 69yo Hopkins, also known as Johnny Horton, with being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition. “We’re not worried about it, he’s going to be cleared,” said Jim Benvie, a spokesman for the United Constitutional Patriots (UCP), blaming his arrest on political pressure from Lujan Grisham. A small group of about 6 have camped out in rotating shifts since late February, supposedly helping U.S. Border Patrol detain over 5,600 migrants in the last two months!
Crowdfunding sites PayPal and GoFundMe on Friday barred the group, citing policies not to promote hate or violence, after the ACLU called the UCP a “fascist militia.”
“Today’s arrest by the FBI indicates clearly that the rule of law should be in the hands of trained law enforcement officials, not armed vigilantes,” New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas said in a statement of Hopkins’s arrest.
Hopkins was previously arrested in Oregon in 2006 on suspicion of impersonating a police officer and being a felon in possession of a firearm, according to the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said in a statement it did not support citizens taking law enforcement into their own hands and instead encouraged the public to be its eyes and ears on the border, which Benvie says is exactly what they did. They said they’ve never pointed guns at migrants, as they’ve been accused of doing, and that they only carry for self-defense.
(Fox News) ACLU’s letter to the governor says, QUOTE: “The Trump Administration’s vile racism has emboldened white nationalists and fascists to flagrantly violate the law…. We cannot allow racist and armed vigilantes to kidnap and detain people seeking asylum.”
The New Mexico’s female governor said: “If migrant families are made to feel threatened, that’s completely unacceptable, and...regular citizens have no authority to arrest or detain anyone.” (That’s a lie.)

(Drudge) REPORTS: Mexican troops disarmed American soldiers on US side of border… (Wash. Examiner) Armed Mexican troops disarmed two United States soldiers while they were on the American side of the border, according to US Defense officials. U.S. Northern Command said in a statement that "five to six Mexican military personnel questioned two U.S. Army soldiers who were conducting border support operations" this month. The U.S. soldiers were in an unmarked Customs and Border Protection [CBP] vehicle near the southwest border near Clint, Texas. Mexican troops raised their rifles and took a pistol from one of the soldiers and put it in the US Border Patrol vehicle — the two Americans complied "in an attempt to de-escalate a potential volatile situation." The Mexicans beleived they were in Mexico, but it was north of the Rio Grande, so it was in America. "Though they were south of the border fence, U.S. soldiers remained in U.S. territory, north of the actual border."
(Reuters) Mexico warns of 'Deep concern'... over armed groups at the border, supposedly intimidating and extorting migrants at the border (sound like Mexican cops and cab drivers!). The ACLU and Democratic senators called for a probe into such citizen efforts to block migrants from crossing. “These types of practices can drive human rights abuses of people who migrate or request asylum or refuge in the United States,” Mexico’s Foreign Relations Ministry said in a statement, referring to “militia groups” in New Mexico. That’s rich, they have no place to talk!
(Drudge) Frustration grows among caravan migrants in Mexico as support fades… (AP) There are 5,000 to 8,000 migrants in the southern state of Chiapas. One 22-year-old Honduran mother is complaining because her aunt said that Mexicans would help her get to the U.S. She has a two-year-old. Back in October caravans got all kinds of help from “churches,” town governments, and passers-by. Truck drivers stopped to give them a lift. But local support has dried up with complaints of crime and insecurity, and migrants have become too aggressive, say some. One dumb priest is blaming a “campaign of discrimination and xenophobia.” The migrants no longer want to talk to reporters, because they’re “tired and angry.” Mexico is under pressure from the Trump administration to stop them.
(Drudge) Yellow vest anger burns in France, fueled by Notre Dame fire… (Yahoo) French police said they arrested more than 200 "yellow vest" rioter in Paris on Saturday as clashes broke out with demonstrators turning out for a 23rd week of so-called anti-government protests (going on 6 months!)… protesters threw bottles and other objects at police and set fire to vehicles, safety barriers and bins…. more than 60,000 police officers and paramilitary were on the street to prevent another violent riot as happened March 16th. Protestors are jealous that the rich donated to rebuild Notre Dame Cathedral but not help them.
There’s Outrage after protesters urge police suicides… (Yahoo) some demonstrators chanted "commit suicide, commit suicide!" at the police forces on Saturday. France's national police force has been troubled by a worrying increase in suicides within its numbers this year, with 28 officers taking their lives so far in 2019. In 2018 as a whole, 35 police committed suicide nationwide.
(Drudge) STUDY: Physician Burnout Jumps Dramatically; Half Frustrated… (StudyFinds) ‘Doctors Became Overworked Robots’: Physician Burnout spikes in a 3-Year Study. According to researchers at the University of California, Riverside School of Medicine, physician burnout increased from 45.5% to 54.4% between 2011 and 2014. Three major factors:
The traditional doctor-patient relationship has been dwarfed by the relationship between health insurance providers and patients, with companies standing in the way of fast and appropriate treatments ordered by physicians.
Doctors are feeling more cynical as a whole, because patients don’t expect continuity of care anymore and routinely change doctors.
General lack of enthusiasm for their work.
I say: OBAMACARE... Thanks, Obama!

(CBS Dallas-Fort Worth) North Texas Mr. Jim’s Restaurant Temporarily Shuts Down After Employees Allegedly Put Miralax On Pizza — pizza that was eaten by another employee though! Next to Goshen, northwest of Fort Worth, a resident told Springtown police that an employee had posted on social media that they were putting the laxative on the food. Police said 3 employees put it on at least one pizza, and the employee who unknowingly ate the tainted pizza is now sick.

Police are investigating and have not said if the employees in question will face any charges.
(Drudge) Buttigieg steals Beto thunder… JESSE PREDICTED THIS! The gay guy is more exciting to the liberal media than the white wannabe Hispanic man who’s maybe not as socialist. (The Hill) O’Rourke, the former Texas congressman who became a media phenomenon when he nearly toppled Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) last year, has been eclipsed in recent weeks by Buttigieg who’s gotten all kinds of hype from late night and other MSM. As white men and two of the youngest candidates in the field, Buttigieg, 37, and O’Rourke, 46, are natural competitors…. But he’s been in 3rd place behind Biden and Bernie in some polls. Five former Obama administration diplomats told The Hill on Friday they’d raise money for Buttigieg’s campaign.
Homosexual Mayor Pete Compares Bernie fans to MAGA supporters… (NY Post) Buttigieg claims that both camps include disaffected citizens who seek to change the status quo — so he’s trying to appeal to them, even though he’s alienated all conservative Christians by pretending he has God on his side. He was allowed to talk to high school students in Nashua, N.H. He implied that he admired Bernie in the past but claim not to agree with him on everything he does.
(Drudge) Warren Proposes Student-Debt Cancellation… (WSJ) Her proposal calls for $1.25 trillion in relief over 10 years, funded by taxes on so-called high-wealth households — as a way to wipe out hundreds of billions of dollars in student-loan debt as a way to control rising college costs. Gov’t subsidies raise the price of college through affordability inflation, just as subsidized housing raises the cost of homes! College is useless anyway in many cases! Stupid!
(Daily Wire) Charlize Theron says: My seven-year-old son is really a girl. Two weeks ago she told men to “grow a pair” and ask her out, because she’s quote “shockingly available,” unquote. The pro-abortion actress been raising her adopted 7yo son as a girl since he was just age 3, letting him wear dresses and referring to him as “she.” “Yes, I thought she [he] was a boy, too,” Charlize told Daily Mail. “Until she [he] looked at me when she [he] was three years old and said: ‘I am not a boy!’ So there you go! I have two beautiful daughters who, just like any parent, I want to protect… They were born who they are and... get to find themselves as they grow up, and who they want to be, is not for me to decide.” (What an idiot.) “My job as a parent is to celebrate them and love them and to make sure that they have everything they need in order to be what they want to be. And I will do everything in my power for my kids to have that right and to be protected within that.”
She said her mother killed her father in front of her in supposed self-defense, because he was allegedly abusive and alcoholic. That was on a remote farm outside Johannesburg, South Africa.
