12 GOP Senators who voted Against Pres Trump's National Emergency for protecting Americans and Border Security - IT JUST SO HAPPENS - These Senators are not up for election in 2020 except Susan Collins and Lamar Alexander who has already said he will not be running for re-election.
TRUMP TO VETO
“National Emergency” By Jon McNaughton
Every year hundreds of thousands of foreign nationals march to our southern border and cross into our country. Who are they? What right do they have to come here? Dangerous drug smugglers, human traffickers, and other criminals enter our country without permission, while many more wait in line legally hoping for the American dream. These law breakers cost the American taxpayer over 100 billion dollars a year and have a disproportionate level of crime in our population. President Trump only asks for 5.7 billion dollars to secure the border, so why won’t the politicians let him do it? In my new painting, the Democrat establishment declares victory against President Trump as he announces a national emergency to secure the border. They proudly hold the flags they represent and cherish. Our politicians have become traitors to this country, in most cases they are more loyal to whichever country, lobbyist, corporation, or special interest group that will keep them in office and line their bank accounts. I’m sick of how they trample our flag and do not seek America’s interests first.
Trump stands apart from them with his head bowed contemplating the state of our border situation. He sees a lost doll left behind by a little girl forced to make the dangerous journey. To not build the wall is to allow people on both sides of the border to suffer needlessly. “Tolerance for illegal immigration is “not compassionate,” but “cruel.” – President Trump The storm is rising and responsible Americans support President Trump as he declares a “National Emergency.”

The Dirty Dozen — The GOP Senators Who Opposed Trump’s Emergency Declaration
By Dick Morris on March 14, 2019
Twelve Republican senators did not think the massive flow of more than 65,000 illegal immigrants over our southern border each month was enough of a problem to declare a national emergency!They put their focus on maintaining the power of the Senate ahead of our interest in keeping our jobs and controlling our borders.Remember the names. When they come to us for support or for our votes, remember how they treated our priorities and needs when they were on the line and the stakes were high.
The dirty dozen are:
• Marco Rubio, Florida
• Lamar Alexander, Tennessee
• Susan Collins, Maine
• Mike Lee, Utah
• Lisa Murkowski, Alaska
• Roy Blunt, Missouri
• Rand Paul, Kentucky
• Pat Toomey, Pennsylvania
• Rob Portman, Ohio
• Jerry Moran, Kansas
• Roger Wicker, Mississippi
• Mitt Romney, Utah
With the exception of Collins, none of them are on the ballot in 2020, so they are playing the D.C. game of only voting against our will after we have re-elected them. They are cowards as well as traitors!
Collins, Murkowski and Paul are the usual dissenters. Elected as Republicans, they are never there when you need them.
Rubio is the big surprise. In the debates, he vied with Ted Cruz over immigration, insisting he was tougher. He was lying. He failed to come through for us when the funding for the wall was on the line. Remember that and never, never, never again vote for him for president.
Lee is a principled conservative, his vote likely motivated by his perception of constitutional niceties.
Wicker spent his recent re-election campaign hugging Donald Trump close. Now we see what a hypocrite he is. Romney is hoping Trump stumbles and is building a record to run against him.
Alexander is retiring, so he doesn’t care anymore and will vote how he always wanted to — often against the views he professed to the Tennessee electorate.
Portman, Toomey, Blunt and Moran are surprises, but let’s remember their names.
China tools of war include economic and military power. Economically they are using U.S. capital against America. Militarily, forget about the great wall of China, learn about the great tunnel of China, it include 3000 miles of tunnels full of nuclear war heads pointed at you!
ROBERT SPENCER: SO LONG, EVERYBODY
If I'm shut out of all platforms over the next few days, you’ll know why.
March 18, 2019
My friends, it could be time for me to be saying goodbye. Leftist and Islamic groups have been trying for years to silence all criticism of jihad terror and Sharia oppression of women and others, and in the New Zealand massacre they see the best chance in a long time to move in for the kill. I (along with other foes of jihad terror) could be banned from everything and rendered a non-person, a la Alex Jones, any day now.
This is no exaggeration. Meeting in Istanbul, the International Union for Muslim Scholars (IUMS) has called on non-Muslim countries to ban “Islamophobia,” which means criticism of Islam, including analysis of the motivating ideology fueling jihad terror. IUMS President Ahmed al-Raisouni said Friday: “IUMS calls on non-Muslim countries to ban the spread of hatred against Islam and Muslims.”
Since analysis of the motivating ideology behind jihad terror is routinely smeared as “hatred of Islam and Muslims,” this will likely outlaw all such analysis and make opposition to jihad terror effectively impossible.
And these bans are very likely coming. In America, they won’t take the form of actual laws forbidding criticism of Islam (although remember that Tom Perez, the current head of the Democratic National Committee, refused to rule out the implementation of such laws a few years ago, when he was Assistant Attorney General in the Obama administration). They’re more likely to take the form of a complete deplatforming. We will be able to speak, but no one will be able to hear us, as we won’t be allowed on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and the rest.
IUMS was not alone. Saudi King Salman tweeted: “The heinous massacre that targeted worshippers in the mosque in New Zealand is a terrorist act, and it reaffirms the responsibility of the international community in combating hate speech and terrorism that is not condoned by religions or the values of tolerance.” Apparently terrorism that is condoned by religions is fine with him, as in “strike terror in the enemies of Allah” (Qur’an 8:60). But by “hate speech” he almost certainly means honest discussion of how Islamic jihadis use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence.
Domestically, the call for censorship came from the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which has for years been trying to shut down all opposition to jihad violence and Sharia oppression of women, gays, and others. They have succeeded in fooling many people into thinking that it is “bigotry” and “racism” to oppose jihad terror, and have made those who discuss the motivating ideology behind jihad terror toxic in the public square. Now Hamas-linked CAIR is attempting to use the New Zealand massacre to achieve total victory: the complete closure of all media platforms to foes of jihad terror and Sharia oppression.
In its press conference on the New Zealand mosque shootings, CAIR top dog Nihad Awad (pictured above) named Donald Trump as responsible for the massacre, despite the fact that in the murderer’s insane “manifesto,” he asks himself: “Were/are you a supporter of Donald Trump?,” and answers: “As a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose? Sure. As a policy maker and leader? Dear god no.” The “symbol of renewed white identity” part is all that the media is quoting. He never says he was incited to violence by Trump, or says anything about Trump and Muslims at all.
Awad also named Pamela Geller and me: “Years ago when another terrorist attacked in Norway he quoted islamophobes like Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller.” Yes, he also quoted Barack Obama and John F. Kennedy and Charles Darwin and a host of others. He said he was inspired to violent actions by al-Qaeda. Awad does not, of course, say anything about that.
Anyway, CAIR’s press conference was a full-court press for censorship, and it painted, yet again, a large target on our backs for increasingly unhinged and violent Leftists, as well as jihadis. CAIR calls for a total silencing on all platforms of so-called “hate groups,” i.e., those who dare to note that jihad terrorists are inspired by Islamic texts and teachings. It is likely that the social media giants will comply; it will not be at all surprising if they succeed in getting us completely silenced.
Not surprisingly, it was in Britain that police moved most swiftly on this. The BBC reported Saturday that “a 24-year old from Oldham” was arrested for a social media post “making reference and support for the terrible events” in New Zealand. Approving of a massacre is disgusting, and if he was calling for or approving of violence then there is no justification for that. At the same time, the BBC report says: “Social media firms and some news outlets have been criticised for sharing livestream footage of the attack and failing to address far-right extremism on their platforms.”
Calling for or justifying a massacre of innocent people is one thing. But that "failing to address far-right extremism on their platforms" is quite another. For years now, Leftists and Islamic supremacists have insisted that opposing jihad mass murder and Sharia oppression of women and others constitutes "far-right extremism." So it is likely that those who will be shut down will not be limited solely to people such as this “24-year-old from Oldham” who was “making reference and support for the terrible events.” It will include foes of jihad terror.
If and when we are all silenced, however, the jihad will not stop. The multicultural paradise will not dawn on the planet; in fact, there will be more jihad violence and strife than ever. There just won’t be anyone around who dares to oppose it.

ABOUT ROBERT SPENCER
In March of 2019 from the 1st to the 19th, there were 18 separate terror attack around the world. Almost all were by Muslim groups against non-Muslims. It is in this context that we need to understand the tragic New Zealand attack upon Muslims by a self described Eco-Fascist. This singular event has become an opportunity for the global Muslim community to demand outlawing of Islamophobia, and outlawing all speech deemed prejudicial to the Muslim community. They are not seeking to outlaw Muslim verbal assaults upon Jews and Christians, and they are not interested in curbing Islamic act of terror. What they are arguing for is Islamic Supremacy over all others, as Sharia Law demands. This cannot be if we are to remain a free Democratic Republic. Freedom of Speech is OUR American Birthright and we must never give it up! And that includes speech critical of Islamic Supremacy.

To Senator Rubio
I am so furious with you and the other 11 Senators who voted against Pres Trump’s National Emergency— you have dropped to the blackest of all list in my book. You think you are safe from the voters until 2022 but we the people have long memories .. you screwed us on the border issue years ago when you were part of the gang of 8 .. we gave you a small pass because you were young.. your chances of forgiveness and opportunities are over. you did not listen then and recently .. we want our borders protected and we want the wall. NOW.
YOU have disrespected the American and Florida voters for the very last time.
You are a coward and traitor to the American people.
The only reason you got reelected in 2016 for 6 years is we the people understood we needed the numbers to control the majority in the Senate and provide support for the Pres We The People elected.
You have failed miserably in your duty to the American people .. Don’t give me any hog wash about what a future Democrats President might do with the National Emergency Power. Congress has the power to change that law. We have a National Emergency on our borders today.
The GOP allowed the Democrats to gain control of the House and we busted our buns to keep the senate from also flipping back to the Dems and you have personally hurt the future 2020 election. but you decided to be a part of a select group of Trump haters & stoppers. Shame on you.
Don’t talk to me about what is happening in Venezuela when you refuse to protect the borders and the people in our country.
THE GOP CAN”T UNITE and the Democrats loosing control of their party to far Left Socialist-Communism & Terrorist, Anti-Semitic - and baby killers

Boy, just 16 years old, stabbed to death and set on fire by MS-13 in DC suburb
Stabbed over 100 times by at least five gang members, police say
Paul J. Richards/AFP/Getty Images
CALEB HOWEA 16-year-old boy was stabbed over 100 times, and his body set on fire. He was murdered in a neighborhood in Maryland, a suburb of D.C. His body was dumped in Fairfax, Virginia. Another D.C. satellite. The killers were members of violent drug gang MS-13. The boy's offense?
He wanted to leave the gang, his mother says.
Police announced on Friday that they have arrested five male MS-13 members in connection with the slaying.
Kevin Rodriguez-Flores, Jonathan Castillo-Rivera, and Jose Hernandez-Garcia are in custody in Virginia. They are adults, and are under arrest for first-degree murder, among other charges. Christian Martinez-Ramirez is also under arrest on the same charges. He is 16 but charged as an adult. Jose Ordonez-Zometa, the fifth accomplice, is under arrest in Maryland, and police say he is the gang leader.
The victim, Jacson Chicas, fled El Salvador with his family to escape MS-13's clutches. That's according to his mother, who spoke with an NBC affiliate station.
Chicas' mother said that they came to the United States from El Salvador to escape the gang, but were not able to do so. As the White House has stressed, MS-13 is active all across the United States. According to police investigating this murder, the "clique" of MS-13 involved operates in Fairfax, Virginia. That's right outside Washington, D.C. The murder took place at the gang leader's home in a Maryland suburb of D.C.
The brutality of the slaying is the gang's calling card. President Donald Trump was raked over the coals in 2018 by the press and Democrats for referring to members of this gang as "animals." He was accused of "dehumanizing" these killers. But this list of inhuman acts of grotesque brutality by MS-13 this writer's op-ed for USA Today show the madness of that backlash.
That brutality includes reprisal not just for attempting to leave the gang, as the mother of the victim in this case alleges her son was attempting, but even for refusing to join the gang in the first place, which is the reason for one of several machete hacking and stabbing murders by MS-13 that have been in court in just the last week.
Maj. Brian Reilly of the Prince George's County Police told the Washington Post that the slaying was the gang "sending a message."
"He was stabbed around 100 times," Reilly said. "That goes to how violent this attack was and how it wasn't just one person who did this. The group turned on their own."
Illegal immigrant stabs California woman to death after 'sanctuary' laws protected suspect from ICE 9 times
Posted on March 13, 2019 by Breck Dumas in News
An illegal immigrant with prior convictions and multiple arrests for offenses such as false imprisonment and battery has been taken into custody in the stabbing death of a woman in San Jose, California.
Law enforcement officials decried the state’s sanctuary law as they revealed that before the murder, Santa Clara County officials ignored no less than nine U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainer requests for the self-professed gang member.
What are the details?Police say Carlos Eduardo Arevalo Carranza, 24, stalked 59-year-old Bambi Larson before breaking into her home and killing her in her bedroom last month. Larson’s body was discovered by her son on Feb. 28, when he checked in on her after she failed to show up for work.
Carranza was arrested Monday after investigators linked him to the crime using DNA evidence from Larson’s home. He was also seen on security footage “stalking” the area near Larson’s home on the day of her murder and well as leaving the residence after the crime was committed.
The transient’s lengthy rap sheet goes back to 2013 when he was arrested for crossing into the U.S. at the southern border. He was deported back to Mexico but returned only to be arrested another 10 times with at least three convictions prior to Larson’s murder, according to the Daily Mail.
At the time of his arrest, Carranza was on probation for false imprisonment, burglary, and possession of methamphetamine.
How could this happen?San Jose Police Chief Eddie Garcia revealed at a news conference that ICE had applied nine times for a detainer on Carranza, which would have allowed for the suspect to be held longer than his jail term in order to allow federal authorities time to investigate his immigration status.
But county officials ignored the repeated requests due to Santa Clara’s sanctuary status, allowing Carranza to be released and commit further crimes. Garcia slammed the practice of freeing immigrant offenders rather than assisting ICE, saying, “This isn’t about politics, this is about public safety.”
“We are here to protect and embrace our otherwise law-abiding, undocumented residents,” Garcia added. “We are not here nor should we be here to shield admitted gangsters or violent criminals regardless of immigration status.”
ICE field director Erik Bonnar also spoke out against sanctuary policies, asking in a statement, “How many more people have to be killed or injured before California lawmakers will open discussions to revise the state policy prohibiting local law enforcement agencies from working with ICE to apprehend dangerous criminal aliens?
“It’s unfortunate that our communities face dangerous consequences because of inflexible state laws that protect criminal aliens,” Bonnar said in the statement. “These sanctuary policies have unintended, but very real, and often tragic consequences to public safety.”
EVANGELICAL LEADER TAKES CAMPAIGN TO WASHINGTON, D.C. TO REMOVE ILHAN OMAR FROM CONGRESS AND PERSONALLY DELIVERS LETTER OF PETITION TO NANCY PELOSI AND ATTORNEY GENERAL CALLING ON JUSTICE DEPARTMENT TO INVESTIGATE ILHAN OMAR’S CONNECTIONS TO MUSLIM BROTHERHOODLAURIE CARDOZA-MOORE: “IS ILHAN OMAR IN VIOLATION OF FEDERAL STATUTE FOR FUNDRAISING FOR MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD CHARITIES WHICH SEEK TO DESTROY AMERICA?”
WASHINGTON DC (3/14/2019) Evangelical leader Laurie Cardoza-Moore took her battle to remove Ilhan Omar from Congress to Capitol Hill this week where she personally delivered letters and a petition with tens of thousands of signatures to the offices of Nancy Pelosi and Attorney General William Barr. The letters demand a full and thorough investigation into Omar’s connections with the Muslim Brotherhood, an organization that seeks the destruction of America. Laurie Cardoza-Moore, president of Proclaiming Justice to The Nations (PJTN) and host of the highly acclaimed Christian television program Focus On Israel which reaches an audience of over two billion viewers in 200 nations, has led the charge against Omar and has pledged to not stop until action is taken to remove her from Congress.
“Ilhan Omar is a self-professed anti-Semite and a danger to our great country. She is making a mockery of all Americans by sitting in the House of Representatives while publicly raising money for organizations that seek the destruction of our republic. We the people demand that a thorough investigation is carried out to ascertain her connections to the Muslim Brotherhood and its American affiliates. Until such time, it would only be appropriate that she stand down from office,” remarked Laurie Cardoza-Moore.
Cardoza-Moore was in Washington this week to meet with a number of key lawmakers to push for action against Ilhan Omar. She has vowed to continue with her national campaign and petition, which has already garnered tens-of-thousands of signatures, until Omar is removed from Congress.
“Omar has gotten a free pass from the leadership of her party, but we the people will not be silent until she is removed from Congress. We are calling on each and every American to join this initiative by visiting our website at PJTN.org to sign the petition as well,” added Cardoza-Moore.
The recent revelation of Omar’s participation as a keynote speaker at events for the Muslim Brotherhood affiliated groups IRUSA and CAIR demonstrates her support for subversive factions aligned to destroy America and Western civilization itself.
“While she has already established her credentials as a vehement anti-Semite, Ilhan Omar is far worse than that. Omar may be in violation of a federal statute for fundraising for two Muslim Brotherhood charities that seek to destroy America. Omar’s anti-Semitic comments do not reflect the values of Americans,” said Laurie Cardoza-Moore. “How can a representative of the United States raise money for terrorist groups that seek our demise and equally serve on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, or for that matter, as a member of Congress?”
Ilhan Omar and Yousef Abdallah were keynote speakers at an Islamic Relief USA (IRUSA) fundraising event on February 23, 2019 in Tampa last month to raise money for Yemen. Abdallah, who promotes violent anti-Semitism, is also known for lauding a "resistance hero who helped kill more than 20 Jews" and "fired rockets at Tel Aviv" (Hillyer, Washington Examiner, 2/12 with credit to Middle East Forum, Clarion Project, and Investigative Project on Terrorism). After the Washington Examiner and the Jerusalem Post released a statement exposing Omar's anticipated appearance with Abdallah, Abdallah's name was removed from the program (Hillyer, Washington Examiner, 2/13).
IRUSA is a known subsidiary of Islamic Relief (IR), the largest Muslim fundraising group which has documented ties to the terrorist organizations Hamas, Hezbollah, and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Israel severed ties with Islamic Relief and financial organizations Credit Suisse, UBS, and HSBC have all closed down the accounts with IR because of their terror financing.
According to a 36-page report from the Middle East Forum, the founder of Islamic Relief, Hany El-Banna, has been involved with several organizations with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, including once serving as the trustee of the Muslim Aid charity that has funneled money to Hamas. (MiddleEastForum/media/MEFLibrary/pdf/Islamic-Relief)As a student, El-Banna was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood organization Federation of Student Islamic Societies. El-Banna has also praised the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, Hassan Al Bana for being “held in so much awe and respect.” (jewishjournal.com/news/nation/235411/)
Is IRUSA hiding behind the same “humanitarian-aide” cloak the Holy Land Foundation did? Is Ilhan Omar helping to advocate the support of the Muslim Brotherhood’s overthrow of our Government? These are questions American citizens demand an answer to!
Additionally, Omar wil keynote at an upcoming Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) fundraiser in Los Angeles. CAIR is the American arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, in addition to close ties to Hamas and Hezbollah. CAIR was designated as a terrorist group by the UAE and in 2009, CAIR was listed as an “unindicted co-conspirator” in the Holy Land Foundation Trial, the largest terrorist fundraising operation in the history of the United States. During the Holy Land Foundation investigation, the FBI uncovered an internal Muslim Brotherhood memo, “An Explanatory Memorandum On the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America 5/22/1991," which mapped out the organization’s plan to infiltrate and destroy America. The memorandum stated: “The Ikhwan [brothers] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and "sabotaging" its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions.”
At the conclusion of the trial, David Kris, then Assistant Attorney General for National Security stated, "These sentences should serve as a strong warning to anyone who knowingly provides financial support to terrorists under the guise of humanitarian relief."
Following the Holy Land Foundation trial, the FBI severed its once-close ties with CAIR amid mounting evidence that it has links to a support network for Hamas. On September 19, 2013, the Department of Justice slammed the FBI for its ties with CAIR (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org/2013/doj-ties-with-cair-muslim brotherhood/).
Under 18 U.S. Code § 2385. Advocating overthrow of Government; “Whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society, group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or violence; or becomes or is a member of, or affiliates with, any such society, group, or assembly of persons, knowing the purposes thereof-Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned…"
And as if matters couldn’t get worse for Omar, as a state representative in Minnesota, she pleaded for light sentences, mercy, and compassion for nine Somali ISIS fighters, apprehended before they could leave the U.S. (FOX 9, Minn.-St. Paul, 1/26). In fact, the FBI has stated that the 5th Congressional district Omar represents in Minnesota has been called “the terrorist recruitment capital of the U.S.”
“Omar recently accused Jewish lawmakers of dual loyalty to Israel… my question to Omar, is where do your loyalties lie? Do they lie with the jihadi groups you’re raising money for or to the Constitution you swore to protect? Americans demand a response!” concluded Cardoza-Moore.
Proclaiming Justice to The Nations (PJTN), a 501c3 non-profit organization, was established to educate Christians about their Biblical responsibility to stand with their Jewish brethren and Israel against the rise of global anti-Semitism. Utilizing powerful film and video presentations, a variety of grassroots rallies, events and speaking engagements to facilitate dialogue between the Christian and Jewish communities in support of the State of Israel and against global genocidal anti-Semitism. In recent months the organization has led the struggle against BDS in America with a wave of state resolutions and as exposed textbooks used in U.S. schools that are indoctrinating our children with inaccurate historical information, bias and values that do not reflect our nation. Laurie Cardoza-Moore, president of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations is the show host of the award-winning Evangelical docu-style program Focus On Israel that reaches a weekly global audience of over 2 billion in 200 nations through our 20 global media partners.

Pro-life ‘Unplanned’ movie receives R-rating… likely for violence of abortion
By Nancy Flanders |
February 22, 2019 , 05:46pm
Unplanned, the movie of the life story of Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood worker turned pro-life activist, has unexpectedly received an R-rating from the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA). The MPAA cites the reasoning for the rating as “some disturbing/bloody images” but Ben Kayser of Movie Guide has stated that other 2019 films that include killing, murder, and death have only received a rating of PG-13.
While Unplanned features simulated abortion scenes that include blood, it doesn’t contain any of the MPAA cautions for profanity, nudity, or sex. Therefore, the MPAA decision to give the film an R-rating is quite possibly because of the abortion scenes — and the MPAA’s opinion that these scenes depict violence. The rating essentially means that the MPAA is (perhaps unintentionally) supporting the pro-life community’s long-held argument that abortion is an act of violence against innocent human life — one pro-lifers believe should be illegal.
READ: ‘Unplanned’ star shocked by mother’s revelation: ‘I was going to abort you’
In addition to stating the obvious – that abortion is an act of violence – the R-rating sets up quite a hypocritical situation for pro-abortion organizations and leaders. The bizarre situation is that teens in many states can legally undergo an abortion without a parent’s permission, but won’t be able to see a movie about abortion without a parent’s permission: ‘Dear teenage girls, you are mature enough to have this violent act done to you and your child and your parents don’t need to know, but you can’t see a movie about it without your parents saying it’s okay.’
Planned Parenthood works overtime to fight and overturn laws concerning parental notification for abortion, so it’s ironic that teenage girls can’t enter a movie about Planned Parenthood without parental notification.
The writers/directors of Unplanned — Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman — aren’t worried about the R-rating, although it may stop teenage girls who should see the movie from seeing the movie. In their opinion, it’s a film teens should see with their parents.
“But, maybe it’s all for the best: As the wife of our lead film attorney put it: ‘This is a movie that every mother of a teenage girl needs to take her daughter by the hand and go see with her.’ So as far as we’re concerned, ‘R’ means ‘Recommended,'” they said as reported by Movie Guide. They say they don’t plan on fighting the R-rating.
Unplanned is scheduled to be released in theaters on March 29, 2019.
