The Life and Death of Mollie Tibbetts



Symbol of fundamental change, including DACA: Mexican flag at an immigration rally in an American city. (Possible treason? Sanctuary cities? Drivers licenses?) Mollie Tibbetts died in its name. So did a California police officer, murdered by one of many illegal immigrants. This represents another humanitarian hoax on the American people, and the deracination of America as well. It is also a signal to pass the new RAISE Act that would minimize episode of this kind. The latest: exploiting illegal immigrant children to try to facilitate open borders.

Hello this is Darrell Castle with today’s Castle Report. Today I will be talking about the life and death of Mollie Tibbetts.

How Mollie Tibbetts died…

Mollie Tibbetts was a 20 year old sophomore at the University of Iowa who went out for a jog on July 18 of this year, and was never seen alive again. Local authorities aided by the concern of local Iowa people searched high and low for her with nothing to show for it. A reward of almost $400,000 was raised and offered for information about where she might be.

Finally, authorities located a farmer with a farm about an hour from the small community of Brooklyn, Iowa where Mollie lived. For some reason he had set up surveillance video cameras around his farm amid the thousands of acres of cornfields and along the roads. It didn’t take long to spot Mollie on camera running down an Iowa road with a strange car following her. The driver stopped and forced her into the trunk of his car. Her body was found in a field a short time later, so she was kidnapped and murdered and who knows what else. A preliminary autopsy revealed that she was stabbed to death.

Cristhian Bahena-Rivera, an illegal alien from Mexico, has been charged with her murder. Mr. Rivera confessed to the murder and took authorities to Mollie’s body but he said he “blacked out” and didn’t remember anything about it. We know then who stabbed Mollie, but is anyone else responsible for her death?

…and why

Richard Viguerie in his publication Conservative HQ said it best.

The brutal murder of Brooklyn, Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts casts a harsh and inescapable light on exactly who is responsible for this senseless killing, and from our perspective Ceisthian Bahena Rivera whom the Iowa division of Criminal Investigation has named as her alleged murderer was only the means of her death, the real killers are the politicians who keep our borders open and who continue protecting illegal aliens, especially those with criminal histories.

Mollie Tibbetts was killed so that somebody in Iowa could have cheap labor, and she was killed so that the Business Roundtable, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and the rest of Washington—Wall Street—Silicon Valley Axis could hit this quarter’s earnings target., and most shamefully, she was killed so that virtue signaling liberal politicians could get reelected and because their bootlickers in the media and their urban elite supporters in the gated communities and the security-doored co-ops and condos feel superior to her, and the other victims like her, and don’t think their lives are worth protecting.

Whatever the reason, Mollie is still dead, and her death gives us a chance to look at several aspects of the immigration system that passes laws against illegal entry into the United States and then welcomes the violators with open arms.

The details of the Mollie Tibbetts case

Mollie’s town of Brooklyn, Iowa was surrounded by sanctuary cities and counties but on July 1st, just two weeks before her disappearance, the Iowa state legislature passed a law revoking state funding for sanctuary cities and counties in the state. Two weeks too late and too little for Mollie Tibbetts.

Mr. Rivera apparently used a fake or stolen photo ID and a fraudulent Social Security card to get a job at a local dairy farm. The dairy farm owner admits he did not use E-Verify to check Mr. Rivera’s eligibility for employment. Mr. Rivera, illegally in the United States for 7 years, actually fathered his own anchor baby by one of Mollie’s former classmates. Since the baby was born in the U.S., according to our current bizarre interpretation of the 14th amendment, the baby is a U.S. citizen.

The arrest of Mr. Rivera caused him to be separated from his child and if convicted he will be separated from the child for many years, perhaps permanently, although Iowa, unfortunately, does not have the death penalty. This subject of children of illegal aliens separated from parents is a cause of great concern to some Democrat politicians such as Elizabeth Warren Democrat Senator of Massachusetts who expressed the opinion that what we should really be concerned about is separation of children from parents at the border.

Who separated whom?

Mr. Rivera permanently separated Mollie from her parents, not to mention his own baby separated permanently, perhaps, from its father. Many others have also been permanently separated from their parents and children by illegal alien murderers. Mollie is but one in a long line of murder victims killed unnecessarily by illegal aliens who were allowed to enter, and remain in this country. His “I blacked out” defense may allow his lawyer to portray him as the victim as, to a certain extent, did Kate Steinle’s killer’s lawyer.

The wall along our southern border, if it is ever built, can now be a memorial wall. Kate Steinle, Mollie Tibbetts, Edrick Smith, Jurgen Cheston, Catherine Ann Webb Flores, Natalie Chidlaw, Justin Troy Holland, Adam James Kempf, Teresa Ann Pierce Harrelson, Kimberly Hoyle, Amber Reed, Patsy Eason-Barefoot. Ronald “Ronnie” Dale Viehweger, Charles C. Clements, Jr. William D’Ari Perry, Tony J. Gabriel, Jamiel Shaw Jr., Josh Wilkerson, Christy Sue Pina, Grant Ronnebeck, Sarah Root, Drew Rosenberg, Sergeant Brandon Mendoza and Timothy J. Minor. These people were all killed by illegal aliens, but I offer my apologies to the long list of those I left off because I don’t know their names. These are just the ones I currently know of but there are hundreds, perhaps thousands of others.

Did Mollie Tibbetts contribute to her own murder?

When I first heard about this case I wondered how Mollie felt about illegal immigration before she was kidnapped and stabbed to death by an illegal alien. I said that I would bet that since she was a college student that she was down with the cause, and guess what. On her twitter account she had tweeted the mandatory phrase for those who are “woke” now; “I hate white people”. That’s what she said publicly for anyone to see, I hate white people.

I wonder if she was so ethno masochistic that she actually hated herself. I wonder if she hated her parents, her friends at college, the kids who work at Starbucks, the professors who were woke like her? I doubt if she actually hated any of those people in the classic definition of the word hate. That phrase is like a rite of passage today into the liberal world. That’s what you say if you want to be a good person, to be liked, to be oh so virtuous, and to be accepted by all the right people.

The way Mollie was killed matters and Mollie matters. The person who killed her is not a statistic but a real person who committed a real crime and now she is dead 100% of the time. Mollie’s murder sheds an inescapable light on the circumstances of her death. One sanctioned and indulged crime—illegal entry into the United States, led to a much worse and much more violent crime. If we allow those in the media or in politics to write that out of the equation then we have cheated any sense of honesty out of our investigation into Mollie’s death.

Self-insulating politicians

Politicians who let in illegal aliens and who let them stay here kill people like those names on my list that I just recited. Politicians such as Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Marco Rubio, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, have traded the lives of ordinary Americans for cheap labor contributions and political power. They have as well, invited the violent crime and violent criminals of Mexico and Central America into the heartland towns and communities of America. I wonder if those politicians ever have just a little pricking of their conscience for Mollie Tibbetts running through a cornfield in Iowa, or Kate Steinle walking along a pier in San Francisco.

I doubt if they do, because they appear in public with armed guards and armored limousines. They live behind walls in guarded mansions and they dictate terms for the rest of us. I hope this woman’s death creates enough outrage in people that they remember it this November. If I were a Republican Candidate for any state or federal office I’d remember it, and Senator Warren’s comments would play during every one of my rallies, especially Iowa in 2020.

Why ICE exists

This case makes me wish that we had a special federal law enforcement agency responsible for identifying, and apprehending violent illegal alien criminals. Perhaps we could call the agency Immigration and Customs Enforcement or “ICE”. Wait a minute, we do have such an Agency and every day the men and women of ICE are out there trying their best to catch the Cristhian Riveras before they encounter the Mollie Tibbetts of America. There is a movement now, however, whose fo0llowers want to abolish ICE, in fact, that’s the name of their organization. It’s quite virtuous now to advocate for the abolish ICE movement and just about all Democrat politicians are willing to do it if it keeps them on board with the new Democrat Party.

Finally folks, would it be fair to say that abolish ICE and its enabling politicians helped Christian Rivera abolish Mollie Tibbetts, perhaps it would.

At least that’s the way I see it.

Until next time folks,

This is Darrell Castle.
