AMERICA SHOULD LEAVE IRAN ALONE UNLESS CONGRESS APPROVES AN ATTACK.  THE SHIPS ATTACKED WERE JAPANESE AND NORWEGIAN.  IF WE ARE ACTING AS MERCENARIES FOR THE WORLD PAY OUR SOLDIERS SOME BIG BUCKS.   WE DON’T EVEN KNOW WHO THE ATTACKER WAS.    AMERICA  FIRST.

The Editor:  What is dangerous, LL ?

Lucy Cat:  There are many reasons to be fearful.  The first is airplane doors falling off, the second is smelly feet.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

From: Hank Ashmore

The Deplorable Infidel

 

Liberty is the hallmark of American society. It is an unalienable right that is specifically protected under the Constitution. This right to liberty includes freedom to believe, express, and practice one’s faith according to one’s own conscience. These liberties, however, are not absolute and must operate within the bounds of the law. Therefore, when disagreements and controversies arise in the United States, they are fought in the free marketplace of ideas or resolved in a court of law, governed by the laws enacted by Congress and state legislatures. Those laws indiscriminately govern people of all races, religions, and social classes present in the United States and must comply with the U.S. Constitution, which is “the Supreme Law of the Land.”

Historically, immigrants to the United States have quickly assimilated themselves into the population and, despite their different countries of origin, have proudly called themselves “Americans.” We are now seeing that some Muslims communities in the United States are seeking to be governed by Islamic Shariah, which is not only foreign to this country and not enacted by proper authorities, but also incompatible with the existing law of this land and, in many respects, contrary to natural justice.

Islamic Shariah, the divine law according to Muslims, arose in the Middle East fourteen hundred years ago. Shariah is an Arabic term literally meaning “law.” Al-Shariah is “the revealed, or canonical, law of Islam” or, simply, “the law of God [Allah].” According to Abdullah Yusuf Ali, the most widely accepted translator of and commentator on the Quran in the Muslim world, Shariah, which includes more than “mere formal rites and legal provisions,” is best translated as “the right Way of Religion.” Islamic Shariah is different from other religious law in that it covers not only the spiritual aspects of a Muslim’s life, but it is also a legal system, a comprehensive code of law governing the total social, political, and economic lives of all Muslims that must be enforced by the state. It encompasses all aspects of life, from crimes and punishments to personal family matters and mere greetings to passersby.

Indeed, the threat of political Islam in the United States is no longer abstract; it is now a reality. Islamists have already begun implementing their ideology (submission to Allah at all costs) in America and other parts of the Western World. The United States has documented evidence proving that Islamic extremist organizations have been planning to impose Shariah on North America. The Muslim Brotherhood said the following in a memorandum laying out its goals to dominate America:

The [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and [Allah’s] religion is made victorious over all other religions.

“… Virtue, morality, and religion. This is the armor, my friend, and this alone that renders us invincible. These are the tactics we should study. If we lose these, we are conquered, fallen indeed … so long as our manners and principles remain strong, there is no danger.”

Patrick Henry

 

“Avarice, ambition, revenge, and licentiousness would break the strongest cords of our Constitution, as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

John Adams

 

“Bad men cannot make good citizens. It is when a people forget God that tyrants forge their chains. A vitiated state of morals, a corrupted public conscience, is incompatible with freedom. No free government, or the blessings of liberty, can be preserved to any people but buy a firm adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, frugality, and virtue; and by a frequent recurrence to fundamental principles.”

Patrick Henry

 

WAKE UP AMERICA BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!

AN OPINION FROM THE DEPLORABLE INFIDEL

They are at it again. The moron Democrats want to introduce a bill in Congress for reparations for the descendants of slaves. Just think, if there had been no slavery, there would be no need for reparations. There would  be nobody to give the money too.

 

A SIMPLE THOUGHT FOR TODAY

A tax loop hole is something that benefits the other guy. If it benefits you, it is tax reform.

Unusual Mountain Ahuna Mons on Asteroid Ceres

Explanation: What created this unusual mountain? There is a new theory. Ahuna Mons is the largest mountain on the largest known asteroid in our Solar System, Ceres, which orbits our Sun in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. Ahuna Mons, though, is like nothing that humanity has ever seen before. For one thing, its slopes are garnished not with old craters but young vertical streaks. The new hypothesis, based on numerous gravity measurements, holds that a bubble of mud rose from deep within the dwarf planet and pushed through the icy surface at a weak point rich in reflective salt — and then froze. The bright streaks are thought to be similar to other recently surfaced material such as visible in Ceres’ famous bright spots. The featured double-height digital image was constructed from surface maps taken of Ceres in 2016 by the robotic Dawn mission. Successfully completing its mission in 2018, Dawn continues to orbit Ceres even though it has exhausted the fuel needed to keep its antennas pointed toward Earth.
