The left said this would never happen. Confiscation was not what they were after. We all knew it was a lie and now it’s going to be a reality for some gun owners. When they came for the 18-20 year old’s right did you speak up, even though you were not one of them?
Conservative Tribune Reports: It happens every time there’s talk of gun control laws: The left predictably scoffs at gun owners, calling them paranoid for not trusting the state.
“Nobody wants to confiscate your guns,” liberals assure the rest of America. “Stop exaggerating.”
Flash forward to Thursday. Lawmakers in Democrat-controlled Illinois have passed a bill to — you guessed it — confiscate currently legal firearms from gun owners. So much for being paranoid.
According to Breitbart News, HB 1465 has moved to the state Senate after being passed in the House a week ago. The measure would require citizens between the ages of 18 and 20 to give up ownership of certain guns that they bought legally, or risk becoming seen as criminals.
“The guns and magazines remain legal for persons 21 and up, but persons under 21 would have 90 days to give up ownership,” Breitbart explained.
“The NRA-ILA described the weapons covered by HB 1465 as ‘commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms,’” continued that news outlet. “The bill also requires 18-20-year-olds to forfeit ownership of any magazines that hold more than ten rounds of ammunition.”
Semi-automatic rifles, contrary to the portrait painted by the mainstream media, are neither especially exotic or rare. They are actually the most common type of modern firearm owned by law-abiding citizens today, used for sport, hunting and personal defense. At the same time, rifles are used incredibly rarely in actual crimes. Read More @ Conservative Tribune
The beauty of American politics is that all we need is a majority to right a wrong. Sure, there are some loopholes and people who believe that the system is broken, but basically, the majority gets to decide things. This was set up for the purpose of keeping the government from scamming people. It’s easy to convince a few people that your idea is right, but it’s hard to convince the majority unless the idea is really good.
Unfortunately, the Democratic Party has had so very many bad ideas that they are starting to run out of voters will buy what they’re selling. That provides them with a problem: how do they get votes, while simultaneously frustrating the voters with their unsustainable policies.
Enter illegals. No really, illegals are entering, and the Democrats are helping them, basically buying their votes. Not only do they advocate for the rights of illegals to remain in the country, but allow those same non-citizens to live off of our welfare and other special programs. Now, as the plan progresses, we’re discovering that hundreds of thousands of illegals (that we know of) are being put on voter registries. American Conservative Heraldreports that these illegals names were found voting in Pennsylvania:
“We know that Democrats will do anything to win elections. Even violate the very ethics of our democratic republic.
In numerous states, people aren’t even required to show proof of identity before voting. They can pretend to be anyone, so long as the name is registered. You can’t tell me people aren’t exploiting that to steal elections.
We often hear of other forms of voting fraud, including using the names of registered deceased voters to sneak in another vote. But one state took it much too far. It has admitted to letting 100,000 non-citizens register to vote. This means that a large group of people have the power to sway elections, who aren’t even American citizens.
“More than 100,000 non-U.S. citizens are registered voters in Pennsylvania, according to testimony contained in a lawsuit demanding that the state admit its problems when it comes to non-citizen voting…
“For months, Pennsylvania bureaucrats have concealed facts about non-citizens registering and voting — that ends today,” PILF President and General Counsel J. Christian Adams said.
Of the more than 100,000 non-citizen voters in Pennsylvania, one city commissioner found in September that at least 90 of those non-citizens registered to vote cast ballots in Philadelphia. Hundreds more non-citizens who did not vote were also on the voter rolls.’
They are following a scheme used by other liberal states like California. They lowered the bar, allowing non-citizens who renew their driver’s licenses the right to register to vote. There’s just one big problem: being allowed to drive in the U.S. is not the same as legal citizenship.
This is an obvious attempt at voter fraud. No non-citizen, even a legal immigrant, should be allowed to vote in an U.S. election. Would I be able to vote in Canada, simply by getting a driver’s license there? Of course not. Why should it be any different in America?
News of this fraud comes after liberal, Pennsylvania judges re-created the congressional election map, which now gives Democrats a distinct advantage. Clearly, Democrats are doing anything to steal the state from legal, voting citizens. Whether inside the law or outside of it, they will violate our democracy to have their way.
News is spreading that other states are also joining in this ridiculous practice, including New Jersey, Virginia, and Texas.
So, when are we going to say we’ve had enough? The time is now to stop this before illegals take over our country for good.””
America is basically the frog in a pot of water that has been being heated slowly for decades. If we were to hear this story about any other country, where millions of people were migrating in, not integrating, and getting increasingly aggressive with their demands, we would call it for what it was; an invasion. America is slowly but surely agreeing with illegals that we’re totally OK with them taking our country over.
When a debate like this comes up, someone inevitably brings up the fact that America is a country of immigrants, and they’re right. However, we became a country of immigrants because of a desire to allow everyone to experience this amazing way of life. However, it’s not a right, it’s a privilege.
We have the right to say who enters and who doesn’t, and part of the path to citizenship requires that immigrants familiarize themselves with the framework of our government. Anyone who does that will be able to easily recognize that the Democrats’ platform is completely unsustainable, and shouldn’t be supported. That’s one of the reasons that illegals are vital for the continuation of the DNC’s agenda, and why we should fight to keep our right to vote sacred.
It is almost becoming laughable the number of Democrats that are being caught in scandals and crimes after years of pretending to take the moral high road. For years, we have heard the left claim how they are the paradigm of morality and that it is the Democrat party that stands for women right’s and so forth. Well, that is going to be a hard sell in the future for these faux do-gooder’s since most of their party now stands accused of sexual misconduct and corruption that can land many of them behind bars.
Over the last several months, the Democratic Party has faced one sex scandal after another, and it does not appear to be stopping anytime soon as these liberal politicians are being discovered for the perverts they are. Just in the last several months, two top Democrats Senator Al Franken and John Conyers were caught embroiled in disgusting sexual behavior that prompted them to resign from their political positions in power.
And, now just before the dust has settled another explosive sex scandal has emerged involving another Democrat that has the left reeling and another seat up for grabs after being expelled from office.
After Donald Trump won the election last November, the Democrat party has been in shambles as Democrat leaders desperately trying to pull itself back together again. With the 2018 midterm elections looming in not so far off distance, sexual misconduct scandals have rocked the Beltway resulting in numerous resignations, and now a stunning expulsion from office.
Rep. Steve Lebsock
Rep. Steve Lebsock from the ultra-liberal state of Colorado was just voted overwhelmingly to be expelled from office after numerous women have come forward with claims that this sleazy representative sexually assaulted them. The allegations are so horrible that it is entirely possible that Lebsock may serve jail time, and that is not all.
“The Colorado State House voted overwhelmingly Friday to expel a Democrat member accused of sexually assaulting at least five women.
Fellow Democrats led the charge in a 52-9 vote in favor of the expulsion of Rep. Steve Lebsock, marking the first expulsion to occur in over 100 years, KDVR reported.
“We, as a general assembly, have responsibility to police our own, to hold our own to high level of accountability,” Democratic Majority Leader KC Becker, who introduced the legislation to expel Lebsock, said previously.
Five women accused Lebsock of sexual harassment and making repeated unwanted sexual advances.
State Rep. Faith Winter alleged that Lebsock grabbed her arm while she tried to leave a bar two years ago, described various sexual acts and grew angry with her when she refused to go home with him.
Lebsock has denied all the allegations.
“The last months have been awful. I have taken public attack, after attack, after attack while I have patiently stood by waiting for due process to take its course,” Winter told her colleagues during the hearing.
“Today is not about sex. It is about power.”
Some Republicans voiced concerns about whether due process had been afforded to Lebsock during the allegations and hearings.
However, many believed Lebsock abused his power in an effort to prove his innocence and retaliated against the victims by handing out a document that detailed the sex life of one of his accusers and other personal information.
Right before he was expelled, he quickly changed parties, according to his tweet.”
I changed party affiliation at 3:02pm. As I walked down to speak for the last time, approx. 4pm, I handed the minority leader a document with affiliation change. Nothing was planned. He did not know about party change before. #copolitics
And, of course, the reactions on Twitter were priceless!
If @RepLebsock actually cared about the people of Colorado he would have just resigned rather than consume so much time and energy on his own expulsion. Can we find some elected officials who aren't lame narcissists? #copolitics
It is about time that these Democrat creeps hiding in power are exposed for their dirty deeds against women. For too long the left has claimed that they are the champions of women’s right, but that will be a hard sell for the upcoming midterm elections.
Now, this stunning revelation could prove to be good news for the Republicans who are running for office in the state of Colorado who may now just have a shot they need to slow the progressive liberal policies ruining the country on a daily basis.
It is about time that these sexual deviants in the Democrat party are exposed for their nasty behavior, but there is still one that needs to be held accountable for his actions, and that is Bill Clinton. The Democrats can continue to say they are sorry for their behavior and resign from office, but until Bill Clinton does it, the Democrat party will only stay mired in their own filth.
It has been almost a month since deranged gunman Nikolas Cruz walked into a Parkland, Florida high school, opened fire and killed 17 innocent people. Since that horrific day, the left has jumped on their soapbox demanding more gun control, blaming President Trump and the NRA for Cruz’s actions. As the gun debate continues to rage on social media platforms now, one state has just passed a controversial gun ban that has many people wondering if this is just the start of more infringement on our rights, while others applaud the stricter stance.
For years, the second amendment has been under fire by far-left extremists who are hell-bent on disarming the American people. Every time there is shooting in our country, the gun-grabbers latch onto the tragedy to push for more gun control by tugging at the heartstrings of the American people by using arguments that play on emotions rather than logic. Now, the state of Oregon has passed new legislation that would close the loop for unmarried men convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence.
Oregon Gov. Kate Brown (D) signed a new bill that would prohibit domestic violence misdemeanor offenders to own a firearm.
Now, in the past, as we all know it is typically felons that are barred from owning weapons, which makes this bill all that much more concerning. A misdemeanor is a crime, but it is not a felony and restricting someone’s God-given right to arm themselves appears to be a slippery slope. The question that many people could ask is what other crimes could be deemed dangerous enough to strip a person of their gun rights, and where does this all end?
“Despite two attempts from Republican lawmakers to send the bill back to committee, Oregon Democrats on Thursday passed the first gun control measure since the deadly shooting at a Florida High School—and advocates say the measure is a huge step forward for single women.
The legislation, which passed 16-13, is designed to close the so-called “boyfriend loophole,” a gap in the law that women’s advocacy groups have been trying to close for more than two decades. The legal blind spot, created by lax wording, allows unmarried men who live alone to slip through a federal law preventing convicted domestic abusers from purchasing guns.
“What the boyfriend loophole means is that someone who is convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence who only dated their victim, never lived with or had a child together, is legally able to continue to purchase and possess guns,” April Zeoli, a professor of criminal justice at Michigan State University, told Newsweek.
The loophole stems from the 1996 federal law referred to as the Lautenberg Amendment, which prohibits people convicted of certain domestic violence crimes from owning a firearm. The law also makes it illegal to knowingly sell or give a gun to a person who meets that criteria, but limitations abound.
“Practically speaking, if you have two people who committed the same act of violence against their intimate partners and were both convicted, but one was married to their victim and the other had been dating their victim, only the one who was married would be prohibited from having access to guns,” Zeoli said.
As written, Oregon’s bill expands the prohibitions to include stalkers and people under a restraining order. Although it was on the agenda prior to the February 14 shooting at a Florida high school, Governor Kate Brown credited the groundswell of recent activism with helping it pass through the legislative chambers.
The bill seeks to protect victims of all genders but advocacy groups said its passage is an especially important step to protect single women living in the U.S. A nationwide study from the University of Pennsylvania analyzed more than 31,000 police reports and found that about 82 percent of intimate partner violence incidents included current or former dating partners, while less than 15 percent involved spouses. A majority of the victims in those cases were women, a statistical trend that is consistent across the U.S.”
Now, do not get me wrong I fully believe that if someone commits a violent crime, they should not be allowed to own a firearm, but a misdemeanor is whole other issue, and where will this slippery slope end.
It is possible that other states could see this as an opening to impose more restrictions on those that they deem a potential threat. So, in the end, while this bill seems to be shrouded in good intentions, it could lead to a mess that our founding fathers would wholly disapprove of, and for a good reason.
The state of Florida has become the epicenter of the resurgence of the gun debate after suffering a second massive shooting. Liberals were not remotely satisfied with the lack of action to inhibit citizens’ Second Amendment rights after the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, blaming this as the reason why the Parkland high school massacre happened. After nearly two weeks since the most recent shooting resulting in a massive assault on Americans’ constitutional rights that immediately ensued, Florida lawmakers just made a huge move that nobody was expecting.
Other than the two mass shootings happening in the same state, the attacks had nothing else in common other than a gun used by the killers with completely different motives for killing innocent people. It’s the person who pulled the trigger that’s the problem, not what they used to enact their plan that they would have done with or without gun control. However, that’s a concept that the left refuses to understand in their endless pursuit for control, using every tragedy to strip people of their right to defend themselves against criminals and a corrupt government, should one ever be faced with either threat.
Florida’s Governor Rick Scott has announced last week that he planned to pursue some changes to gun laws in his state as a response to all those demanding it following the school shooting that killed 17 people. While he did just as he said he would and raised the legal age for purchasing a firearm from 18 to now 21, lawmakers in the state unexpectedly approved a huge new rule, making Florida the first in the nation since the Stoneman Douglas High School massacre to do so.
While lawmakers consented to the left’s demand to raise the age limit, Florida was far more in favor of conservatives by not only refusing to ban AR-15 style rifles, like that which Nikolas Cruz used to commit mass murder, but they also approved something else, enraging liberals which will inevitably lead to rioters retaliating against this big decision.
Florida’s Senate Rules Committee spent more than two hours debating the gun-control issues before eventually casting their votes, according to NBC.
Senators also agreed to confiscate guns from people with mental health issues, in addition to raising the legal buying age and giving teachers the right to carry.
A similar packaged set of reforms is scheduled to be taken up by the House Rules Committee on Tuesday.
The meetings come as more and more people continue to show their support for stricter gun-control laws, many of whom own weapons themselves.
Hundreds of activists and students turned out in Tallahassee last week — including survivors of the Parkland massacre — to call on lawmakers to act.
Many gathered at the Capitol on Monday to show their support for the assault weapons amendment, which was rejected by a 7-6 vote.
“Shame, shame, shame!” some of the activists shouted, according to News 13.
The fact that teachers could soon be allowed to carry firearms inside schools wasn’t sitting well with gun-control supporters, either.
“It bothers me to think as a father of two young boys to tell them to not be aggressive to your teacher,” said Sen. Oscar Branynon (D-Miami Gardens).
Of course, race was immediately brought up in the backlash of this move by the lawmaker who disagreed with this decision. Rather than articulating a rational response as to why he was disappointed with this new rule, Branynon made it sound that African-American children are now going to be targets of violence for their armed school teachers.
In a completely sensationalized statement, Branynon told the Sun Sentinel that “he and other black fathers across Florida will now have to include teachers when talking to their children about how to act around armed authority figures,” the Post reported.“Please don’t make it dangerous for children who look like my children to go to school,” he added, basically accusing pro-gun teachers who choose to be armed as being inherently racist and wanting to take advantage of their new right to carry by shooting black kids.
While Florida is not the first to allow teachers to legally carry a firearm in their classrooms, they are the only state since the shooting to approve this bill that’s been a huge debate in the days since the tragedy. However, they join just a very small group of states to grant this right, making them only the seventh in the stay to allow armed teachers in classrooms. According to the Giffords Law Center, only ten states in the nation allow concealed carry in schools. Also, there’s no proof that there’s ever been a case in any of these states where concealed carry has been allowed for a long time, that an armed teacher has intentionally shot at a black student or even brandished their weapon in a threatening manner for a racist, power-driven reason.
Voters in one of America’s biggest swing states will be able to decide on this November’s ballot whether convicted felons will regain the right to vote.
If 60 percent of voters in Florida approve the initiative, Amendment 4, voting rights would be returned to 1.5 million felons in the state once they compete their sentences, including parole or probation. The initiative would not include sex offenders or murderers.
“Floridians for Fair Democracy, led by Desmond Meade, of Orlando, successfully gathered more than 799,000 certified signatures in their years-long petition drive, just a week before the deadline to reach the required total of about 766,000,” The Orlando Sentinel reported on Tuesday.
“Because of that, the state on Tuesday certified the initiative for the Nov. 6 ballot.”
And the question could be crucial for future Florida elections.
“Voter approval could reshape the politics of the nation’s largest swing state, where the past two races for governor have been decided by about 1 percentage point and where the 2000 vote for president was decided by 537 votes,” the Miami Herald noted.
Meade was a former drug addict who was convicted of drug and firearm charges back in 2001. He went on to earn a law degree, but found himself unable to vote for his wife when she mounted an unsuccessful attempt at the Florida House of Representatives.
“As someone directly impacted, I cannot quantify the level of emotion moving through me right now,” Meade told the Sentinel.
Meade’s organization used paid solicitors to collect 1.1 million signatures, the vast majority of which came from only four Florida counties: Pinellas, Hillsborough, Miami-Dade and Broward.
Of the states that currently bar any voting by former felons without clemency, Florida is by far the largest. The current setup, which requires felons to wait five years to begin the clemency progress, was put into place by Gov. Rick Scott — who could be on the ballot for Senate this year.
The possible impact of Amendment 4 divided pundits. University of Florida political scientist Daniel Smith, who said the measure “flies in the face of the governor and his hostility to restoring voting rights,” said ballot initiatives can often bring out voters who aren’t interested in off-year elections.
“I think it’s going to bring some people out who otherwise wouldn’t be very enchanted with their candidates,” Smith said. “A million people signed the petition. This has been a long time coming for a lot of folks.”
However, Heritage Foundation member Darryl Paulson — who supports the initiative despite representing a conservative organization — predicts it won’t make too much difference in state politics, pointing out only one-third of felons would likely register and one-fifth would actually vote.
“It runs both ways,” said Paulson. “Democrats clearly support the issue because they believe they will benefit, and Republicans tend to oppose it because they believe they will be hurt.”
“My position is it’s not a good way to make public policy based on how it might impact an election sometime down the road,” the emeritus professor of government at the University of South Florida-St. Petersburg said. “Voting rights restoration is economically right, morally right and just the right thing to do.”
Two other alternative proposals have been floated by the Florida Constitution Revision Commission: one similar to Amendment 4 and one, proposed by Democrat state Sen. Darryl Rouson, which would exclude felons convicted of more serious crimes, including burglary and a dozen other offenses.
Scott, for his part, said he was merely concerned with felons paying their debt to society and successfully reintegrating into the community.
“This is a decision for each voter to decide on,” Scott spokeswoman Kelli Wyland told the Miami Herald.
“The governor has been clear that the most important thing to him is that felons can show that they can lead a life free of crime and be accountable to their victims and our communities.”
Vermont has become the first state in history to legalize recreational marijuana via the state legislature and the ninth state overall to legalize it.
Under the new measure signed into law Monday by Gov. Phil Scott (R), adults age 21 and older can now possess up to one ounce of marijuana and cultivate up to two mature and four immature cannabis plants.
The law also creates a committee to determine taxes and regulations.
Today’s news brings the number of states where recreational marijuana is legal to nine, including Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Alaska, Nevada, California, Massachusetts and Maine.
“This is a milestone in the evolving politics of marijuana,” said Tom Angell, a legalization advocate who writes the Marijuana Moment newsletter.
However, the law does not allow legal sales of marijuana.
Scott said he signed the bill “with mixed emotions.”
In a letter to legislators, Scott said his veto of the earlier bill made clear “my reservations about a commercial system which depends on profit motive and market-driven demand for its growth.”
Scott said he would veto any additional efforts to loosen restrictions or implement a legal retail market until legislators addressed highway safety, education efforts and prevention of youth consumption.
Kevin Sabet, who heads the anti-legalization group Smart Approaches to Marijuana, said the fact that the law does not allow a retail market represents a setback to the legalization movement.
“By signing this, the Governor essentially killed any chance of full legalization,” Sabet told The Hill in an email. “In so many ways, this is a big setback for the pot industry. Vermont will be off-limits to them for the foreseeable future.”
Early next year the Department of Homeland Security is actively planning to conduct chemical and biological tests near the border between Kansas and Oklahoma.
Homeland Security officials have said they plan to execute a “low-level outdoor release” of inert chemical and biological simulant materials during at two buildings within the Chilocco Indian Agricultural School (Chilocco campus) in Newkirk, Kay County Oklahoma. The tests have been confirmed to be taking place around January and February of 2018, and then again during June and July 2018.
According to DHS, this biological weapons test is designed to show how protected people would fair when staying inside if biological agents are used in a terror attack. Huh? Unless you live in a completely sealed environment doesn’t the outside and inside share the same air? And for the particle test, the government plans to release titanium dioxide, which it claims is a “white, odorless powder that is chemically insoluble in water, nonreactive, nonflammable and nonhazardous.” Umm, if it doesn’t do anything then why do we need to test what it does? Of course, despite our government’s claims that the chemical is harmless, according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer, Titanium dioxide dust, when inhaled, can be carcinogenic to humans and other animals.
And for the biological part of the test, our government plans to release genetic barcoded spores of an insecticide sold under the trade name of Dipel. Dipel is not considered hazardous by the Environmental Protection Agency when handled appropriately, according to the assessment. If it’s not hazardous unless it’s handled inappropriately, then it’s hazardous.
Homeland Security plans inert chemical tests near Kansas border
Congressman Ron Estes, R-Kansas, announced Thursday night that he has “numerous questions” about chemical and biological tests the Department of Homeland Security wants to conduct just across the state line in Oklahoma.
Homeland Security officials plan to execute a “low level outdoor release” of inert chemical and biological simulant materials at the old Chilocco Indian School campus north of Newkirk, Okla., after the first of the year and again next summer.
The campus is near the Kansas/Oklahoma border, about 6 miles south of Arkansas City and about 55 miles southeast of Wichita. Wind typically blows out of the south, which could carry airborne particles into Kansas.
Part of the test is to determine how much protection people would receive from being inside a house or an apartment if biological agents are used in a terrorist attack, according to a statement on the Homeland Security web site.
The tests are set for next year in January and February, when humidity is low, and again in June and July, when humidity is high.
The environmental assessment of the proposed chemical tests states low concentrations of particles will be released at two buildings on the now-abandoned Chilocco campus. The assessment says that the test will have no adverse impact on human health or the environment.
Estes, who represents the Fourth District in the U.S. House of Representatives, serves on the House Committee on Homeland Security. In a statement released late Thursday, he said he is “monitoring the situation closely.”
“I have numerous questions regarding this proposed test,” Estes said. “While it’s important for our federal agencies to test their abilities in response to threats, we need to be one hundred percent certain this test is safe for the residents of south central Kansas.”
The city of Arkansas City posted a statement on its Facebook page Thursday saying it was reviewing media reports of the chemical testing.
“This is the first time the city has been made aware of any testing to occur at Chilocco,” the statement said. “Inert means chemically inactive, which means by definition there should be no risk to the citizens. However, we are looking into the situation to gather more information for our citizens and their safety.”
For the particle test, the federal government plans to release titanium dioxide, which it describes as a “white odorless powder that is chemically insoluble in water, nonreactive, nonflammable, and nonhazardous.” It also plans to release urea powder mixed with a CL Fluorescent Brightener.
For the biological portion of the test, it plans to release genetic barcoded spores of a biological insecticide known as native Btk, which is sold under the trade name of Dipel. Dipel is not considered a hazard by the Environmental Protection Agency when handled appropriately, according to the assessment.
People have 30 days to submit comments on the environmental assessment to Homeland Security about the proposed tests by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to the Department of Homeland Security:
The deadline for comments is Dec. 8. Chilocco was one of five boarding schools authorized by Congress in 1882 for Native American children not on reservations. Haskell Indian Nations University in Lawrence is another. The 8,000-acre Chilocco Indian Agriculture School opened in 1884 and remained in operation until 1980.
The school is owned by the Council of Confederated Chilocco Tribes which include the Kaw Nation, the Otoe-Missouria Tribe, the Pawnee Nation, the Ponca Nation, and the Tonkawa Tribe.
In 1994, the Tonkawa Tribe briefly considered storing high-level nuclear waste on some of the land.
This is a very bad idea for information that is not really needed and can most certainly be estimated just by facts and figures. There is no need to do dangerous tests to prove what can easily be proven by math and common sense.
Please share if you are against chemical agent tests on our soil….
After continuous complaints from Muslim groups the state of Illinois is reportedly now telling DMV workers that anyone wearing a religious head covering does NOT have to take it off for a driver’s license or photo ID. How in the hell can we tell who it is? This is ridiculous!
Fusion news reports the Illinois Secretary of State’s office will begin mailing fliers reminding Department of Motor Vehicle employees that “articles of faith” are legally permissible. The Chicago chapter of designated terrorist group CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) complained that Muslim women also were being asked to remove head coverings for photos. (H/T Bare Naked Islam)
The flyer reads:
The Secretary of State’s office recognizes and respects the increasing diversity of religions practiced by Illinois residents. Members of many religions, such as Islam and Sikhism, wear religious head coverings, also known as articles of faith. While hats or head coverings are generally prohibited from being worn in photographs used on Illinois driver’s licenses and identification cards, customers may be photographed while wearing established religious head coverings. Photographs increase public safety. Examples of acceptable religious head coverings can be found in this flier.
Followers of the Islamic faith are called Muslims. Some Muslim women cover their head, based on religious belief and the Islamic injunction to dress modestly. They may wear a full-head covering or hijab, or a simple scarf over their hair. Some Muslim men wear a skullcap or kufi based on religious tradition.
It’s illegal to ask people to remove their head covering and the fliers will be a reminder for state employees to respect religious diversity, a spokesperson for Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White tells Fusion. (H/T Mad World News)
Elder Patriot – In response to the Freedom of Information Act request filed two and half years ago by Judicial Watch the F.B.I., now under new leadership, finally released to what amounts to a treasure trove of 2,800 previously undisclosed emailsfrom Hillary Clinton to Huma Abedin that she swore under oath, on three separate occasions, didn’t exist.
Had Hillary become president and Comey remained as head of the F.B.I. these emails would’ve remained buried for eternity.
But, they didn’t remain hidden and their contents have led Judge Andrew Napolitano to tell Stuart Varney that there’s enough here to demand that the Department of Justice re-open the case and that if they seek an indictment they will get one.
“The significance is an FBI acknowledgement that Huma Abedin, Mrs. Anthony Weiner, when she had a top security clearance as the number two assistant to Hillary Clinton when Hillary was Secretary of State, regularly sent copies of sensitive material to her own laptop so she could look at it at night, either knowing, or forgetting that her husband had access to it as well.”
“This yet against shows the culture in the Hillary Clinton State Department of a cavalier attitude about the handling of government secrets.It also shows the F.B.I. awareness of it.It also shows the president’s [referring to President Trump] frustration with it when in a tweet this morning he said, ‘There she goes again, crooked Hillary, Jim Comey let her off the hook again.’Something I [Napolitano] profoundly agree with him on!
“He should pick up the phone and call General Kelly and say, ‘I want you to call Jeff Sessions and Rod Rosenstein’ – Rosenstein’s the number two person in the Justice Department – ‘tell them to reopen this case and go wherever the evidence takes them. I’m not saying she should be indicted. Go where the evidence takes them.’
“The evidence will take them to an indictment.
“That’s the way the Justice Department works. They are not bound by the ill-advised, politically motivated decision that James Comey made in July of 2016 not to seek her indictment.”
President Trump will not get a day of peace from rabid Democrats’ attacks on him until they are freed from acting in defense of the nasty witch that controls them through extortions, bribery, and threats.
Indict her and then watch as she tears the entire corrupt Washington apparatus that her husband built, down in a fit of rage.
