U.S. DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE SUES TO ENSURE “RELIGIOUS FREEDOM”

At least that’s what they say.  The U. S. Department of Justice, the renowned guardians of religious freedom, have filed a lawsuit against Rutherford County, Tennessee in an attempt to force them to issue an occupancy permit for a huge 53,000 square foot mosque recently built there despite a court ordering otherwise.  The U. S. DOJ wants it issued before the start of Ramadan which is either today or tomorrow, depending on which Muslim cleric you listen to.


Let’s start with a little background information.


The man behind its construction, Essam Fathy, told a whole series of lies about how long construction would take.  He claimed years, seemingly to garner sympathy to realize a dream, and that just getting the site leveled and the parking lot paved would take one or two years alone.  Instead, construction was very rapid.

 
In an ABC news ARTICLE from two years ago, Imam Ossama Bahloul said in response to community opposition, “It’s not a huge mosque as they are saying.”  Apparently, he didn’t consider 53,000 square feet huge.

There was a most definite conflict of interest in that Fathy had financial dealings with the Mayor of Murfreesboro, the county seat of Rutherford County.  The Mayor told the county commissioners they had to they had to vote “yes” on the proposed mosque construction or they would all get sued (SOURCE 1).
 
A stop work order was issued by a court stating construction work had to cease because the county had failed to give the public adequate notice of the plans.  With their usual contempt for American law and American authorities, construction was ramped up to a very rapid rate.  Did any of the authorities do anything to enforce the court’s order? No, of course not. Same thing happened in Brooklyn, New York when a mega-mosque was built on a quiet  residential street.  Court order to stop meant continue with construction.  When it comes to the Muslims, it’s the old unwritten “do not oppose” policy once again.
 
Now, a former FBI agent, John Guandolo, whose job was to brief the FBI on terrorism and radical Islamic terrorism provides this information:
 
“- the Murfreesboro Imam is a recognized leader and “jurist” in the Muslim Brotherhood worldwide. He taught “Dawah” in Europe, and was at the top of his class at Al Azhar University, Cairo (4 out of 200) – the most prestigious and authoritative school of Islamic Jurisprudence in the world, and the oldest.
 
–  The ICM Bylaws asserting primacy of Islamic law were copied from other “Islamic Centers.” Muslim Brotherhood Bylaws and the El Barasse Explanatory Memorandum define “Islamic Centers” or mosques as beehives for activities and supplies for “battalions,” and at some point the beginning and center of violence.
 
–  The ICM “reading list” of the Imam began with Yousef Qaradawi, who issued a “fatwah” calling for killing of U.S. troops and civilians in Iraq.
 
–  The Islamic Center of Murfreesboro is a “front” organization for the Muslim Brotherhood posing a security threat to Murfreesboro citizens, who are under- educated on the topic of the threat. Both they and the County Commission should have been informed of this threat to enable public participation in the ICM site plan approval meeting.”
 
 
There is also the question of who exactly is financing the building of this mosque or why the small town of Murfreesboro, Tennessee was chosen for the site.  There are only 200-300 Muslim families in the area, and only forty-five active paying members of the mosque, the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro.  No one seems to know from where the money is coming, nor does anyone know why an area with such a small Islamic constituency was chosen.(SOURCE 3)  You can be it is symbolic in some way.  Mosques are built on carefully chosen sites as a general rule to assert Islamic supremacy.  This particular mosque is built right next door to a Baptist church.

Back to the U. S. Department of Justice’s lawsuit.  Despite the imam being tied to the MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD, and other serious questions about the ICM, a department memo was quoted as saying the allegations accusing the ICM being connected to a terrorist organization are “unfounded.”  Really.  The Muslim Brotherhood is not a terrorist organization.  OK.  Glad we were able to clear that up. (SOURCE 4)


Statements from the U.S. DOJ get even more ludicrous. Assistant Attorney General Thomas E. Perez of their Civil Rights Division said, “Our nation was founded on bedrock principles of religious liberty.  The Department of Justice will continue to vigorously enforce civil rights laws that protect religious freedom.  The U. S. attorney for the Middle District of Tennessee, Jerry Martin, said, “The United States Attorney’s Office will zealously protect every citizen’s right to worship and assemble.” ”  If that’s the case Mr. Perez and Mr. Martin, why didn’t the U.S. Department of Justice rush to Phoenix, Arizona and file a lawsuit against the city where Michael Salman was prosecuted, convicted, sentenced to sixty days in jail, two years probation, and a $12,000 fine for a having a Bible study on his own property?


Mr. Martin and Mr. Perez apparently don’t understand their own doctrine of the mythical separation of church and state.  No matter how it’s justified, no matter how you look at it, the U.S. Department of Justice has filed a lawsuit on behalf of a religious organization.  Just where is the hue and cry of the liberal left wingnuts screaming about “separation of church and state?  Where is the Freedom from Religion Foundation and the ACLU?”  


One last thought:  If this were a Christian church, does anyone really so delusional to believe the U. S. Department of Justice would have raced in to file a lawsuit to force a local government to permit occupancy of the building in time for a religious observance or holiday?  Not a chance.

BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING . . . REALLY

Aerial covert surveillance of American citizens has started.  Who is conducting this covert surveillance?  The CIA? The NSA? Nope . . . the ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY.    It actually started almost ten years ago under the guise of looking for environmental violations by mid-Western cattle ranchers, but nobody knew about it until now.  According to the EPA, they fly over power plants and “other facilities” nationwide looking for EPA regulation violations.  Apparently, some regional EPA officials let it slip at a meeting with ranchers in West Point, Nebraska about three months ago.  Government planes are not used, so they can’t be spotted by just looking at the type of aircraft.  The EPA says it leases small planes from which photographs are taken.

Ranchers complained to their Congressmen and in turn all five of Nebraska’s Congressmen sent a letter to the EPA’s administrator, LISA JACKSON, demanding to know on what basis of legal authority the EPA was conducting the flyovers and taking pictures of private property which included private homes (SOURCE).  According to one of the ARTICLES, there were three flyovers in Iowa in 2010, five in 2011, and one so far this year.  There were six flights last year and three so far this year in Nebraska.  And guess what? The EPA has two more flights planned for this year in each state in spite of the wishes of  members of Congress representing American citizens.  Obviously, the EPA has been allowed to gain too much power and needs to be reigned in.  

So, the next time you see one of these flying over . . .


. . . just smile and wave.  It may just be your friendly neigbhorhood EPA secret agent.

MORE INTOLERANCE OF CHRISTIANITY

If you don’t think we are continuing to lose our freedoms in America, think again. Here is another prime example of the attacks on personal freedoms. Michael Salman, who is a pastor, had a weekly Bible study in his home. One neighbor complained. One. From there on, Pastor Salman accomodated the city’s constantly changing requirements.    Pastor Salman explains everything he went through to  cooperate, but in the end, to no avail.

If this were a backyard barbecue, would the CITY OF PHOENIX have considered it a restaurant?


I have another question and I think we all know the answer to this one: if the Salmans were Muslim, would the city have prosecuted this man for having a gathering of friends and family at his home that was not open to the public?


So now he goes to jail, must pay a $12,000 fine, and be on probation just like any street hoodlum. This is a gross violation of the freedoms guaranteed under the Constitution (what’s left of it) and its amendments.

ANOTHER OF OBAMA’S CLASSY FRIENDS

A victim of one the WEATHER UNDERGROUND‘s bombing attacks talks about it and President Obama’s relationship with WILLIAM “BILL” AYERS who ordered the attack on this man’s home.

Obama can deny his knowledge of Ayers’ activities in the past all he wants to, but he knows now and still maintains his association with this man.  Ayers to this day does not regret his terrorist activitieis.
If this had been Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich, or Ron Paul instead of Obama, we would have been hearing this non-stop twenty-four hours a day in 2008 and now.

DOWN THE COMMUNIST ROAD WE GO

Here is a video of a woman who was born during the time of Hitler, and grew up in East Germany under SOVIET rule.  She knows first hand the progression towards totalitarianism, and sees the parallel here in the U.S. that has been happening for decades, but has been accelerated by the Obama administration.  Listen very carefully to what she has to say.

Very interesting that Hitler provided state-run healthcare.  Obama said during his presidential campaign in 2008 that he wanted a single payer system (the government).  This administration has taken over a major automaker (GOVERNMENT MOTORS anyone?). 
Obama said he favored the redistribution of wealth during his 2008 campaign.  We’ve seen how well that has worked throughout history: Soviet Union, China, Cuba, etc., etc., and etc.  In our history books now, Communism is glossed over.  Missing are the pictures of the people in abject poverty, the bread lines, and the millions of people that have been murdered by Communist regimes.
During his campaign, Obama was very clear about what he wanted to do if elected.  As a matter of fact, he was one of the clearest candidates I have heard in years.  He was very clear about his Communist agenda.  Since he has been elected, he has followed that path exactly.  The only reason we are not closer to a Communist state than we are now is because Obama had a lot of trouble with support by his own party in a Congress that controlled both houses until the mid-term elections.  That should tell everyone something about just how radically left Obama is.

Remember in November . . . a vote for Obama is a vote for a continued move towards Communism.     

 

PRESCHOOLER CHARGED WITH POSSESSION OF ILLEGAL LUNCH

Well, no, not really.  But it seems we’re headed in that direction though.  In Raeford, North Carolina, a four-year-old had brought her lunch from home to school.  It just so happened government food police were on hand in the cafeteria inspecting the lunches of all the students.  When they spotted this little girl with a lunch from home, our tax dollars sprang into action. 



A state inspector ordered a full lunch for the little girl because her lunch from home did not contain a vegetable.  She was allowed to have both, but was too frightened to eat any of her lunch from home and ate only the chicken nuggets.


Let’s take a brief time-out here to compare the two.  The lunch from home had a turkey and cheese sandwich, a banana, potato chips, and apple juice.  The school lunch consisted of chicken nuggets, milk, a fruit, and vegetable.  Yes siree, that child’s mother sure doesn’t know what she’s doing for her own child.  She ought to know that the government always knows better.  Always.  If you don’t believe me, just ask them.


Now my question is this:  since when are chicken nuggets healthy?  If the government knows so much and can do such a superior job in feeding our children, then why do they not seem to know how unhealthy chicken nuggets are?  I saw a commenter on a Facebook post about this describe chicken nuggets as “deep fried floor sweepings”.  That is a fairly accurate description.  It’s made of chicken parts that can’t be used for anything else and it’s over-processed.  The unhealthy nature of processed foods is well documented.

The supposed justification was the home lunch did not contain a vegetable.  Why then was a complete lunch ordered?  The mother of the girl has apparently been fighting this battle for quite some time.  She has repeatedly told the school not to feed her child anything that does not come from the lunch she brings.  Yet, they keep doing it.  The mother has said that her child, being just four years old, does not like vegetables.  Her mother has also said that she feeds her child vegetables at home because the little girl will only eat them under close supervision.  Kinda normal for a four-year-old, but it still seems to tee off the government because she’s not eating the official, approved, calibrated, homogenized, certified government issue food.  After all, such rebellion could lead to anarchy.


And, did you notice something.  Whereas this little girl would have eaten all of her lunch – turkey, cheese, bread, banana, and apple juice – all of it went in the trash.  And all of the official, approved, calibrated, homogenized, certified government issue lunch, except for the chicken nuggets, all went in the trash.  So, before government intervention, child was eating food from most of the food groups.  After government intervention, one of the food groups.  Good job Big Brother!  This little girl will look back and thank you one day, I’m sure.

WHAT’S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?

This man should have mounted his mailbox on the basketball post.  That way, it would have all belonged to the U.S. Postal Service by Federal law and there would not have been anything the DELAWARE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION could have done about it.  

Did you notice the lie in which the DelDot official was caught?  She plainly said he could keep it if he wanted it, but they hauled it off anyway telling this man he could come pick it up later.  And there are those that wonder why so many distrust government?
