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.


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.     

 

JUST THE BEGINNING OF ELECTION YEAR LIES FROM THE LEFT

This is a tactic we are seeing from the Democrats because it’s election year.  Recycling old news.  Since Newt Gingrich has a chance at winning the Republican nomination, the Democrats are bringing up his past marital troubles.  Interestingly enough, that disqualifies Gingrich from being President, but not Bill Clinton.  One more prime example of the left wingnuts’ double standard.  Excuse me, since I said something negative about a Democrat, albeit the truth, that’s “hate speech.”  What the Democrats are doing, “free speech”.  Okay, I have it straight now.

Anyway, REPRESENTATIVE DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ (her Facebook page HERE), chairman of the DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE, is recycling old accusations.  Representative Schultz, on January 11, 2012, blamed the Tea Party movement for the shooting of Representative Gabrielle Giffords last year by nut-job Jared Lee Loughner last year.  Apparently she turned a blind eye, as the left routinely does, to the facts about Loughner that came out later.  He has no political affiliation whatsoever.  His best friend Zach Osler, said, “(Loughner) did not watch TV; he disliked the news; he didn’t listen to political radio; he didn’t take sides; he wasn’t on the Left; he wasn’t on the Right.” (SOURCE: I know Wikipedia can be a flawed source, but this entry is well source and footnoted.  That’s why I used it this time).  Loughner is an atheist.  Loughner’s list of favorite books ranged from Mein Kampf to the Communist Manifesto.  Loughner is drawn to unorthodox political ideologies, but due to his mental problems, is not able to “reasonably sustain any of them” (SOURCE).  Loughner is a diagnosed schizophrenic (SOURCE).


Following is a video so you can hear for yourself what she said:
 
 
There’s a couple of things to remember here.  The majority of the “lack of civility” she refers to have actually been liberals attending town hall meetings and Tea Party events, posing as Tea Party members.  I have posted several times in this blog documenting these leftist tactics. 

If we want to talk about a “lack of civility”, let’s talk about the Occupy movement and compare it with the Tea Party.  The number of Occupy arrests as of October 31, 2011 according to the DAILY KOS was approaching 3,000.  Others claim as many 5,535 as of December 12, 2011 (SOURCE).  There have been many incidents of vandalism, thefts, sexual assaults, you name it.  But, it seems all of that is OK.  Tea Party arrests? Can’t find any.  

I don’t think, though, you will hear Representative Wasserman-Schultz or any other leftists making such comparisons.  As we get closer to this fall’s Presidential election, look for the attacks from the left to get much uglier and dirtier.

BEYOND “CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE”

This is still yet another example of the Occupy movement at its finest.  News reports abound of such criminal acts, but the liberal left in this country is OK with it.  Regardless of political ideology, this goes far beyond First Amendment protection and is 100% wrong.  Period.

REPORT: ‘OCCUPIERS’ BLOCKED AMBULANCE TRYING TO TRANSPORT STABBED POLICE OFFICER


As reported earlier, the Occupy Wall Street movement’s New Years Eve effort to retake Zuccotti Park was blocked by the NYPD. However, something else reportedly happened when an ambulance tried to take a stabbed police officer to the hospital.
According to the New York Post, at least one officer was injured in the clash with the swarm of protesters. The unidentified member of the NYPD was slashed on the hand with a pair of scissors and required medical treatment. However, the ambulance carrying the officer experienced some difficulty in getting the wounded man to the hospital.
The Post reports:
Hundreds in the crowd of occupiers then surrounded the ambulance as it tried to leave with the wounded officer, the source said.
The ambulance was eventually allowed to take the police officer to Bellevue Hospital where he is said to be in stable condition.
Earlier in the evening a group of 100 NYPD were on hand to deal with the OWS efforts on 12/31, additional police in riot gear were required to clear the park of protesters around 1:30am on January 1st.

EVEN MORE OCCUPY LUNACY

The liberal left wingnuts have tried over and over to label Tea Party members and supporters as racists and extremists.  Yet no documentation or video footage can be produced.  Just the usual drivel.
Following is a real example of  “extreme.”  Extreme lunatic.
This lame-brained young woman, who should not have a parakeet in her care, much less a child, put her four year old child on railroad tracks in Portland, Oregon apparently as part of the port shutdown protest.  Despite her “faith in humanity”, is she absolutely clueless about how long it takes a train to stop even at low speeds?  Any mother in the true since of the word would have been going berserk if her child had wandered on to railroad tracks with an approaching train.  But this is just someone who reproduced.  “Mother” and “parent” are verbs, not nouns.
 Oregon’s child welfare agency, the DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES, should take immediate custody of this child, and her mother arrested.  You have a voluntary free-will statement on video here, so MIRANDA does not apply.

And the liberal left talks about how crazy Tea Party members are?  No Tea Party members put their children on railroad tracks with a train coming, or nothing even close.

MORE OKKEYPIE CIVILITY

LIBERAL DEMOCRATS WANT SOCIALIST AMERICA-ONE OF THEM SAID SO!

We have here just one more bit of proof of how the liberal Democrats want to turn America into a socialist country with the government running private enterprise.  Here’s more proof using my favorite method, straight from the proverbial horse’s mouth.
