The ABA's Jihad
by Pamela Geller - February 22nd, 2011 - The American Thinker
The American Bar Association (ABA) has decided to undertake the fight for Sharia law. The ABA's Executive Counsel "has organized a Task Force to review the legislation of 14 states -- ... in which anti-Sharia legislation has been introduced."The article goes on to identify the actions being undertaken by the ABA to implement Sharia finance, a convoluted system of banking designed to pretend that interest is not interest to meet religious dictates of tyrannical Mullahs. That is the finance system that has kept Islamic countries backward and sabotaged all efforts at free enterprise within Muslim countries for over a thousand years. What in the world would cause an American organization to promote such an ignorant concept?
The goal of the ABA's Task Force is to fight against these legislative initiatives by free people...
In reality, Islamic law is the most radical and intolerant system of governance on the face of the earth. It denies the freedom of speech, the freedom of conscience, and legal equality for women and non-Muslims. That's why so many states are trying to ban it.
An equally queer concept is the support by a free press in America for the suppression of criticism against anything Islamic. If you say anything, even something truthful about honor killings of raped women, beheading of infidels, the misogyny against women - absolutely anything that any Muslim finds offensive - you are guilty of Islamophobia and blasphemy. The article notes that Los Angeles is among many cities promoting the right of Muslims to take away the Constitutionally guaranteed rights of our citizens if they dare commit the "hate crime" of criticizing Islam.
A free press is glorifying the elimination of free speech. Local governments are backing this by making it the law of the land.
Has America gone insane? How can such idiocy be tolerated.
High Court Passes Up
Ten Commandments Return
by Lee Ross - February 22nd, 2011 - Fox News
Deciding not to revisit a controversial decision from 2005, the Supreme Court announced Tuesday it will not give another look at the attempt by local officials in Kentucky to hang a copy of the Ten Commandments inside their county courthouse.In reality the decision is a blatantly religious ruling by those who worship Atheism. Atheism has become a religion. It is waging war against Christianity with all the religious fervor practiced by Islam when it too attempted to wipe Christianity from the face of our planet. At this point, those who are too stupid to understand the dogmatic religious persecution of one religion by another are pretending that this is a war between the evil Christians and the morally superior Atheists. Such an ignorant position will not long prevail when Atheists use the power they are gaining to force their views on others.
The decision to bypass the case is a defeat for those who feel the document is of such great moral importance that a framed copy must be placed in the McCreary County Courthouse. Equally, it is a victory for those opposed to the placement of an inherently religious document in the public space, especially the ACLU.
The "Judicial Activism" Ploy
by Thomas Sowell - February 8th, 2011 - TownHall.com
Now that two different federal courts have declared ObamaCare unconstitutional, the administration's answer is to call the courts guilty of "judicial activism."The most frightening part of this issue is that it will be months before it is resolved, and in the meantime our future freedoms hang in the balance. This issue truly is the bright line between a nation of liberty and a nation of tyranny. As corrupt as our courts have become, nothing will stop the total erosion of liberty if the legislature can demand that anyone must do business as government bureaucrats direct.
Barack Obama has a rhetorical solution for every problem. Remember the repeated claims of "shovel-ready" projects that needed only federal stimulus money to get started? Last year the President quietly admitted that there were not many "shovel-ready" projects, after all.
But the phrase served its political purpose at the time-- and that was obviously all that mattered. Now, in the wake of rulings by two different courts that ObamaCare is unconstitutional, rhetoric is being mobilized again, without any fussy worries about facts.
