The Washington Post’s Fact Checker Glenn Kessler has given four Pinocchios to President Barack Obama for his statement that the Keystone XL pipeline proposal “bypasses the United States.”WaPo Gives Obama's 'Keep Your Plan' Promise Four Pinocchios

After Obama had vetoed a bill in Congress last week to approve the construction of the oil pipeline from Canada, he made a deceptive statement to a North Dakota radio station defending his position, according to Kessler.

“I’ve already said I’m happy to look at how we can increase pipeline production for U.S. oil, but Keystone is for Canadian oil to send that down to the Gulf,” Obama said during the interview.

“It bypasses the United States and is estimated to create a little over 250, maybe 300 permanent jobs. We should be focusing more broadly on American infrastructure for American jobs and American producers, and that’s something that we very much support.”

But Kessler said that Obama had repeated false claims about Keystone and managed to make his statements “even more misleading than before” by suggesting that the pipeline would not benefit American producers “at all.”

“The Fact Checker … takes no position on the pipeline, and has repeatedly skewered both sides for overinflated rhetoric,” Kessler wrote. “Yet the president’s latest comments especially stand out.

“When the president says ‘it bypasses the United States,’ he leaves out a very important step. The crude oil would travel to the Gulf Coast, where it would be refined into products such as motor gasoline and diesel fuel.

“Current trends suggest that only about half of that refined product would be exported, and it could easily be lower.”

Kessler noted that a report released in February by IHS Energy, which consults for energy companies, said that “Canadian crude making its way to the USGC [Gulf Coast] will likely be refined there, and most of the refined products are likely to be consumed in the United States.”

Although environmentalists say IHS comments are self-serving, the findings are similar to those in the State Department’s environmental impact statements on the Keystone XL project.

“This is what is especially strange about Obama’s remarks, as he appears to be purposely ignoring the findings of the lead Cabinet agency on the issue,” Kessler wrote.

The Fact Checker also noted that although Obama claims that Keystone is just for Canadian oil, the pipeline would actually help U.S. oil producers in North Dakota and Montana.

“Moreover, U.S. companies control about 30 percent of the production in Canada’s oil sands region,” Kessler wrote. “Thus, contrary to Obama’s suggestion, it is not strictly Canadian.

“When Obama first started making the claim that the crude oil in the Keystone pipeline would bypass the United States, we wavered between Three and Four Pinocchios — and strongly suggested he take the time to review the State Department report. Clearly, the report remains unread.”

Kessler concluded by saying: “The president’s latest remarks pushes this assertion into the Four Pinocchios column. If he disagrees with the State Department’s findings, he should begin to make the case why it is wrong, rather than assert the opposite, without any factual basis.

“Moreover, by telling North Dakota listeners that the pipeline has no benefit for Americans, he is again being misleading, given that producers in the region have signed contracts to transport some of their production through the pipeline.”

WHO IS VALERIE JARRETT?

Here is the lead fox in the house. This one gets to whisper in the kings ear many times a day. I’d like to draw your attention to the small print next to Jarrett’s name….while attending Stanford University.

Ponder and re-ponder what she boldly stated way back in 1977 “…….using freedom of religion in America against itself.” AND guess what….that is exactly what she and her muslim czars have…and are doing….as we sleep.

Yes ladies and gentlemen, THIS is Obama’s top advisor.

Seems as if his promise to fundamentally change America is in full swing.

Had enough yet?

OBAMA – Converted Christian or Devout Muslim?

 

“Lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other
place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people
committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. In our home country,
slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.” –
President Obama at the National Prayer Breakfast today (February 5, 2015)
comparing Islamist militants to events in Western history.

Now You Decide: Obama = Muslim??????

The following essay was read by Mike Gallagher on his radio talk show. It
was effective. He had so many e-mail requests about where to find it that he
posted it on his Face Book fan page. Mike said that a listener had sent it
to him, so he could not vouch for all of the listings included in the essay.
Even if there may be one or two that could be amiss, the list is still very
long! It is incredible how many destructive actions he has taken since
becoming President.

Obama—“It was you”

President Obama: This is why you didn’t go to France.

It was you who told an Islamic dinner – “I am one of you.”

It was you who on ABC News referenced – “My Muslim faith.”

It was you who gave $100 million in U.S. taxpayer funds to re-build foreign
mosques.

It was you who wrote that in the event of a conflict -“I will stand with the
Muslims.”

It was you who assured the Egyptian Foreign Minister that – “I am a Muslim.”

It was you who bowed in submission before the Saudi King.

It was you who sat for 20 years in a Liberation Theology Church condemning
Christianity and professing Marxism.

It was you who exempted Muslims from penalties under Obamacare that the rest
of us have to pay.

It was you who purposefully omitted – “endowed by our Creator” – from your
recitation of The Declaration Of Independence.

It was you who mocked the Bible and Jesus Christ’s Sermon On The Mount while
repeatedly referring to the ‘HOLY’ Quran.

It was you who traveled the Islamic world denigrating the United States Of
America.

It was you who instantly threw the support of your administration behind the
building of the Ground Zero Victory mosque overlooking the hallowed crater
of the World Trade Center.

It was you who refused to attend the National Prayer Breakfast, but hastened
to host an Islamic prayer breakfast at the WH.
It was you who ordered both Georgetown Univ. and Notre Dame to shroud all
vestiges of Jesus Christ BEFORE you would agree to go there to speak, but in
contrast, you have NEVER requested that the mosques you have visited adjust
their decor.

It was you who appointed anti-Christian fanatics to your Czar Corps.

It was you who appointed rabid Islamists to Homeland Security.

It was you who said that NASA’s “foremost mission” was an outreach to Muslim
communities.

It was you who as an Illinois Senator were the ONLY individual who would
speak in favor of infanticide.

It was you who were the first President not to give a Christmas Greeting
from the WH, and went so far as to hang photos of Chairman Mao on the WH
tree.

It was you who curtailed the military tribunals of all Islamic terrorists.

It was you who refused to condemn the Ft. Hood killer as an Islamic
terrorist.

It is you who has refused to speak-out concerning the horrific executions of
women throughout the Muslim culture, but yet, have submitted Arizona to the
UN for investigation of hypothetical human-rights abuses.

It was you who when queried in India refused to acknowledge the true extent
of radical global Jihadists, and instead profusely praised Islam in a
country that is 82% Hindu and the victim of numerous Islamic terrorists
assaults.

It was you who funneled $900 Million in U.S. taxpayer dollars to Hamas.

It was you who ordered the USPS to honor the MUSLIM holiday with a new
commemorative stamp.

It was you who directed our UK Embassy to conduct outreach to help “empower”
the British Muslim community.

It was you who embraced the fanatical Muslim Brotherhood in your quest to
overthrow the Egyptian President, Hosni Mubarak.

It was you who funded mandatory Arabic language and culture studies in
Grammar schools across our country.

It is you who follows the Muslim custom of not wearing any form of jewelry
during Ramadan.

It is you who departs for Hawaii over the Christmas season so as to avoid
past criticism for NOT participating in seasonal WH religious events.

It was you who was un-characteristically quick to join the chorus of the
Muslim Brotherhood to depose Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak, formerly America’s
strongest ally in North Africa; but, remain muted in your non-response to
the Brotherhood led slaughter of Egyptian Christians.

It was you who appointed your chief adviser, Valerie Jarrett , who is a
member of the Muslim Sisterhood, an off-shoot of the Muslim Brotherhood.

WHO IS LORETTA LYNCH?

Who Exactly, Is Loretta Lynch?

Curious circumstances, if that? Hmmmm!

They have started investigating Loretta Lynch, Obama’s pick for Attorney-General and immediately they could see an interesting and unnerving connection. It appears that when Loretta Lynch started at Harvard, she co-founded an African-American only Sorority and there was only one other girl in this sorority, Sharon Malone.

The name rings a bell…

The name of the wife of the current, corrupt AG, Eric Holder, is Sharon Malone; and she is the sister of a known civil rights activist leader Vivien Malone -Jones (one of 2 black students who enrolled in the all white University of Alabama).

They checked the age: both were born in 1959 and both went to Harvard at the same time. There were very few African-American students in Harvard in 1977-1981, so it is rather certain that Loretta Lynch is an old college Friend of Sharon Malone, the wife of the current AG, Eric Holder!!

Why is this connection important? Holder will inevitably be investigated by Congress for totally lawless gun-trafficking to Mexican drug cartels in Fast And Furious, the IRS scandal, the VA scandal, the DOJ, NSA, EPA, FEC and other scandals. Most importantly, AG Holder covered up Obama’s use of a Stolen CT Social Security number (Harrison J. Bounel 042-68-4425) and Obama’s use of several different bogus IDs.

It seems that a long time college friend of Holder’s wife was picked up as a gate-keeper by Obama to continue all of the cover up actions by Holder and, MOST IMPORTANTLY, to shield Holder and Obama from criminal prosecution.

Remember — Loretta Lynch, Obama’s pick for Attorney-General.

Isn’t it amazing how all the pieces to the Obama Puzzle are out there and as we are now seeing after this length of time they are finally coming together………….

Questions for president barack obama…

IT TOOK JUST MINUTES AFTER THIS WAS POSTED TO RECEIVE A WIDE RANGE OF DENIALS FROM THE LIBERAL END OF THE SPECTRUM…IT IS INCREDIBLE THAT THEY HAVE BEEN POLLUTED WITH THE LIES THAT HAVE PERMEATED THE ENTIRE LIFETIME OF BARACK OBAMA…

Opinions please!!

QUESTION!

Here’s what I would like to know. If the TRUTH ever comes out , and it is decided that Obama was never eligible to be president, what happens to all the laws he signed into being and all the executive orders?
Would they all be null and void?

Here are 4 Simple questions from a reputable attorney . . .

This really should get your “gray matter” to churning, even if you are an Obama fan. I wouldn’t want my hero to be made out to be a liar, would you?

For all you “anti-Fox News” folks, none of this information came from Fox. All of it can be verified from legitimate sources (Wikipedia, the Kapiolani hospital website itself, and a good history book, as noted herein). It is very easy for someone to check out.

The Four Simple Questions:

1. Back in 1961 people of color were called ‘Negroes.’ So how can the Obama ‘birth certificate’ state he is “African-American” when the term wasn’t even used at that time?

2. The birth certificate that the White House released lists Obama’s birth as August 4, 1961 and Lists Barack Hussein Obama as his father.
No big deal, Right? At the time of Obama’s birth, it also shows that his father is aged 25 years old, and that Obama’s father was born in ” Kenya , East Africa “.

This wouldn’t seem like anything of concern, except the fact that Kenya did not even exist until 1963, two whole years after Obama’s birth, and 27 years after his father’s birth. How could Obama’s father have been born in a country that did not yet Exist? Up and until Kenya was formed in 1963, it was known as the “British East Africa Protectorate”.
(CHECK IT BELOW)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenya_%28http:/en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenya%29 > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenya_%28http:/en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenya%29

3. On the Birth Certificate released by the White House, the listed place of birth is “Kapi’olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital”.

This cannot be, because the hospital(s) in question in 1961 were called “KauiKeolani Children’s Hospital” and “Kapi’olani Maternity Home”, Respectively. The name did not change to Kapi’olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital until 1978, when these two hospitals merged.
How can this particular name of the hospital be on a birth certificate dated 1961 if this name had not yet been applied to it until 1978?
(CHECK IT BELOW)

http://www.kapiolani.org/women-and-children/about-us/default.aspx > http://www.kapiolani.org/women-and-children/about-us/default.aspx )

Why hasn’t this been discussed in the major media ?

4. Perhaps a clue comes from Obama’s book on his father. He states how proud he is of his father fighting in WW II. I’m not a math genius, so I may need some help from you. Barack Obama’s “birth certificate” says his father was 25 years old in 1961 when Obama was born. That should
have put his father’s date of birth approximately 1936-if my math holds (Honest! I did that without a calculator!!!) Now we need a non-revised history book-one that hasn’t been altered to satisfy the author’s goals-to verify that WW II was basically between 1939 and 1945. Just how many 3 year olds fight in Wars? Even in the latest stages of WW II his father wouldn’t have been more than 9 years old. Does that mean that Mr. Obama is a liar, or simply chooses to alter the facts to satisfy his imagination or political purposes?

Very truly yours, Rich

Japan – some things you may not know…

Japan – some interesting facts.

* Within just ten years after the fall of the atomic bomb, Hiroshima returned to what it was, economically vibrant, before the bomb.

* Japan prohibits the use of mobile phones in trains, restaurants and indoors.

* For the first to sixth primary year, Japanese students must learn ethics in dealing with people.

* Even though one of the richest people in the world, the Japanese do not have servants. The parents are responsible for the house and children.

* There is no examination from the first to the third primary level because the goal of educ ation is to instill concepts and character building.

* If you go to a buffet restaurant in Japan you will notice people only eat as much as they need without any waste because food must not be wasted.

* The rate of delayed trains in Japan is about 7 seconds per year.
The Japanese appreciate the value of time and are very punctual to minutes and seconds.

* Children in schools are taught to maintain their health from an early age. Children must brush and clean their teeth after every meal at school.

* Japanese students take half an hour to finish their meals to ensure proper digestion because these students are the future of Japan.

The Japanese focus on maintaining their culture. Therefore,

* No political leader or a prime minister from an Islamic nation has visited Japan not the Ayatollah of Iran, the King of Saudi Arabia or even a Saudi Prince.

* Japan is a country keeping Islam at bay by putting strict restrictions on Islam and ALL Muslims.

1) Japan is the only nation that does not give citizenship to Muslims.
2) In Japan permanent residency is not given to Muslims.
3) There is a strong ban on the propagation of Islam in Japan
4) In the University of Japan, Arabic or any Islamic language is not taught.
5) One cannot import a ‘Koran’ published in the Arabic language.
6) According to data published by the Japanese government, it has given temporary residency to only 2 lakhs, Muslims, who must follow the Japanese Law of the Land. These Muslims should speak Japanese and carry their religious rituals in only their homes.
7) Japan is the only country in the world that has a negligible number of embassies in Islamic countries.
8) Muslims residing in Japan are the employees of foreign companies.
9) Even today, visas are not granted to Muslim doctors, engineers or managers sent by foreign companies.
10) In the majority of companies it is stated in their regulations that no Muslims should apply for a job.
11) The Japanese government is of the opinion that Muslims are fundamentalist, and even in the era of globalization they are not willing to change their Muslim laws.
12) Muslims cannot even rent a house in Japan.
13) If anyone comes to know that his neighbor is a Muslim then the whole neighborhood stays alert.
14) No one can start an Islamic cell or Arabic ‘Madrasa’ in Japan .
15) There is no Sharia law in Japan.
16) If a Japanese woman marries a Muslim, she is considered an outcast forever.
17) According to Mr. Kumiko Yagi, Professor of Arab/Islamic Studies at Tokyo University of Foreign Studies, ” There is a mind frame in Japan that Islam is a very narrow minded religion and one should stay away from it.”

The Japanese might have lost the war, but they are in charge of their own country.
There are no bombs going off in crowded business centers, “Honour Killings”, nor killing of innocent children or anyone else.

Something to think about.

The Children’s Bible in a Nutshell

Originally posted on Conservative Critic's Blog:

Some grade school children were asked to provide a written summary of the Christian Bible….here is what one child wrote:

In the beginning, which occurred

near the start, there was nothing but God, darkness, and some gas. The

Bible says, ‘The Lord thy God is one,’ but I think He must be a lot

older than that.

Anyway, God said, ‘Give me a

light!’ and someone did.

Then God made the world.

He split the Adam and made Eve.

Adam and Eve were naked, but they weren’t embarrassed because mirrors

hadn’t been invented yet.

Adam and Eve disobeyed God by

eating one bad apple, so they were driven from the Garden of

Eden…..Not sure what they were driven in though, because they didn’t

have cars.

Adam and Eve had a son, Cain, who

hated his brother as long as he was Abel.

Pretty soon all of the early people

died…

Transgenderism: a thought experiment

A recent piece in The Federalist by Stella Morabito captures some of the political and statistical realities surrounding transgenderism. The ease with which societal elites in academia, medicine, and Hollywood sanction a child’s war against his own body and call it healthy, normal, or something to celebrate has its foundation in the contraceptive revolution of our culture.

Women were told that the very thing that most marks them as a woman, their wondrous reproductive systems, their fertility, is their enemy. If only they can break free from the tyranny of their own bodies, they will be free…free to engage in indiscriminate sex.

But we cannot break free from our bodies without further destruction. Hormonal contraception has brought us all kinds of “liberation” – cancer, unintended miscarriages, the masking of symptoms of reproductive disease until it may be too late to treat or mitigate, changes to our pheromone profile that attract and repel different types of sexual mates, the commodification of children and reproduction, which has led to designer babies, selective abortions and other eugenic trends, and a general disintegration of children’s rights as the foundation for the legal structure surrounding civil marriage.

This is just one example of the catastrophic effects of declaring war on our own bodies, not just for an individual who declares such a war, but for many others in the culture who suffer from the effects of this materialist philosophy.

We do violence against human dignity when we agree with someone who has decided that his own body is his enemy. We can not escape our bodies, no matter how aggressively we reject, medicate, poison, mutilate or even kill our bodies, as the sad teenager referred to in The Federalist piece did.

In the end, our personhood is an inextricable combination of soul and body. To damage one is to damage them both. To reject one is ultimately a rejection of both and the psychological carnage of this self-rejection can not be avoided. The idea that we can separate our true personhood from our body is an ancient heresy that raises its head in different forms in every age.

I wonder if these elites would be quite so indulgent of this materialist assault on human nature if there were a child or a teenager who demanded racial preferences and affirmative action treatment because he claimed that he was truly black, trapped in a white body. Walk with me through this thought experiment.

A white adolescent hails from a privileged family in a tony suburb, let’s say. He learns a little about history in school, and about Africa, and the Civil War, and he begins to experience overwhelming feelings of empathy with his black and African brothers throughout the ages. He thinks that this sympathy explains why he’s always felt different or isolated from his own family.

He begins to feel such unity with his black brothers that he delves more into traditionally black or African subcultures, including the hip-hop music scene, the nation of Islam, and adopts a fashion and hair style more traditionally associated with these subcultures.

His parents begin to worry about his alienation from them, and especially his increasing despondency, anger and depression. He feels isolated from his family, unfeeling paragons of white privilege that they are. They ask their pastor to meet with him. To no avail.

They take him to a Christian counseling practice, and his counselors try to talk to him about the healthy aspects of his sympathies and the perhaps unhealthy aspects in the form of his detachment from his cultural identity, his family and community connections.

He rejects their efforts as bigoted, racist, and hostile to his true identity as a black man. His friends at first think it’s funny and quirky, but as he gets angrier and more critical of them for not understanding him, or not wanting to play along with his “black” identity, they distance themselves from him and he grows more isolated and depressed.

As he ages, he wonders why people reject his claims of blackness, why black girls think he’s weird and won’t date him, and why the African American club at school thinks he’s just quaint and odd rather than fully embracing him.

As he applies for colleges, he lists his race as black, writes admission essays about his people’s persecuted past, applies for minority-only scholarships and demands to live in the all-black dorm.

When he is admitted to college, and his true race is obvious to his dorm mates, he grows aggrieved that his scholarship is rescinded and he is asked to move to a different dorm. He insists on rushing the black fraternities, and when they reject him, he sues them and the university for all their many expressions of bigotry.

What do we think about this man? Do we think that the problem is ours – our own intolerance? Are we the ones that need to change, and to resist the information being conveyed about this man by the biological facts of his skin color, ethnic history, and associated genes?

Or do we reach out to him in compassion and love and try to address his deep psychological distress without affirming his self-rejection?

Just asking.

Canadian border officials ban Russian film opposing homosexual agenda

Sodom, a hard-hitting, Russian-made documentary film claiming to expose a homosexual campaign to undermine Western morals, has been banned by Canada’s Border Services Agency.

American anti-homosexuality crusader Peter LaBarbera has just been notified personally of the decision by the CBSA, formerly Canada Customs, because his copy of the 2014, hour-long film was seized as he crossed the border this spring.

“It’s absurd for a democracy like Canada,” said LaBarbera, who is the founder and president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality. “I don’t endorse everything in this film. But I hate to see a great nation like Canada suppressing debate in the name of political correctness. It weakens a nation, it debilitates it. In a free society people evaluate information themselves. They don’t give the responsibility to a bureaucrat.”

Dr. Charles McVety, the founder of Toronto’s Canada Christian College and a prominent Evangelical leader, called the ban on Sodom “outrageous.” He said it was part of a trend that included his being kicked off TV for calling Toronto’s Gay Pride Parade a “sex parade,” and Trinity Western University’s law school project being threatened because of its adherence to Christian teaching.

“We are reaching the stage where a person who holds to traditional Christian values will have no standing in Canada. Eventually we won’t be able to even get a job in this country.”

LaBarbera said he loves Canada—“We went there on our honeymoon”—but may not return after getting stopped for several hours on two recent visits. “It is getting wearying.” LaBarbera was detained for several hours by Canadian border officers in the Spring and subjected to an immigration hearing to determine if he could be refused entry for committing hate crimes.

Sodom is the work of a celebrated Russian journalist and TV personality, Arkady Mamontov. He is best known in the West for a 2012 documentary on the occupation and desecration of a Russian cathedral by Pussy Riot, a dubious band of anti-religious, pro-gay young people. Mamontov accused the U.S. State Department of orchestrating their event.

The same conspiratorial theme runs through Sodom, reinforced by a State Department directive revealed by Wikileaks urging all American diplomats to push for homosexual and transgendered rights worldwide. The film alleges that the U.S. is promoting a “powerful wave” against traditional values with new footage of President Barack Obama making a congratulatory phone call to the first gay couple legally married in an unnamed U.S. state.

Interviews with worried conservatives are interspersed with obscene footage from Gay Pride parades, and interviews with homosexual parents asserting their superiority to heterosexual couples because they had to work so hard to conceive children artificially, whereas heterosexuals have children “accidentally.”

With a single example of an Australian gay couple jailed for prostituting their adopted son offered as evidence, the film hints that at best gays will raise children who are morally and psychologically confused, but at worst want them for pedophilia pursuits.

Extensively interviewed on Sodom is American Evangelical Scott Lively, who told LifeSiteNews he is “Public Enemy Number One” to the U.S. homosexual lobby. He lives up to the billing on film as he describes how the homosexual “five-step plan” is unfolding in the U.S., Canada, and the European Union.

First, homosexuals secure tolerance, then acceptance, then they demand they be celebrated, then the rest of society must participate (rainbow and crossdressing days and gay-straight alliances in schools), and finally dissenters are punished. To show that the final stage has arrived in the U.S., there is a lengthy segment about an American caterer, Baronella Stutzman, sued for refusing to work on a homosexual wedding.

A German Protestant, homosexual pastor is shown making the case that Jesus never mentioned homosexuality but did tell everyone to “love your neighbour as yourself,” which in his view trumped anything St. Paul or the Old Testament had to say on the subject. But a Russian Orthodox priest is then given the chance to rebut.

He and the film’s narrator contend that God’s will is clear from Scripture and from nature: sexual activity should be heterosexual. When whole societies abandon this, ruination follows. The film even suggests that resisting the homosexual onslaught will forestall the end of the world, based on Jesus identifying the end times, in Matthew 24:37-38, with the sexual immorality that presaged the Flood.

Scott Lively told LifeSiteNews the film speaks to the “sincere, powerful moral conservatism” he found when he toured Russia, successfully promoting the passage of the law that now bans homosexual propaganda. “I was stunned at how many people came forward after my talks to tell me, ‘This will never happen in Russia.’”

As for Canada, he is not surprised Sodom has been banned there. “Canada has always led the U.S.” in abandoning traditional moral and economic values, he said. Now Canada, the U.S., and the European Union are embracing socialism and homosexuality just as Russia is going in the other direction.

His comments were reinforced by Alexey Komov, head of the (Russian Orthodox) Patriarchs’ Commission on the Family and the Protection of Motherhood and Childhood in Moscow. “It [the ban] reminds me of Russia under the Soviet Union when some topics could never be brought up,” Komov told LifeSiteNews.

Komov, who helped the filmmaker distribute Sodom through pro-family and pro-life organizations world-wide, added, “Now Canada is practicing a softer form of that, where the people are not given the political freedom to decide for themselves how to protect their children. They don’t have the freedom to decide what information they can look at. Now the schools can indoctrinate their children about homosexuality using sex education.”

Komov said the filmmaker’s plan “was to make a shocking movie which gets all the facts about sodomy-homosexuality together in one convenient form, its history, its consequences for society and for health, to alarm the public about what is really happening behind the pure-sounding term human rights.”

The film has been shown in 18 different languages and, as far as Komov knows, Canada is the only country that has banned it.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., will appoint the first Muslim member to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, which deals with sensitive information on America’s war against terrorism.

pellosium

International Business Times reports that Rep. André Carson, D-Ind., the second Muslim elected to the House, following the election of Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., in 2006, will take a seat on the committee.

Politico reported that Carson’s nomination was announced by Pelosi in a closed-door weekly Democratic caucus meeting and would be announced publicly “in the coming days.”

Carson was first elected to the House in 2008 and converted to Islam 10 years before taking office, IBTimes reports.

In 2014, Carson came under fire for being scheduled to appear on a panel entitled, “Ferguson is Our Issue: We Can’t Breathe,” at a convention of the Muslim American Society/Islamic Circle of North America in Chicago, along with Mazen Mokhtar, a webmaster and fundraiser for al-Qaida, the Center for Security Policy reports.

However, after delivering a keynote speech, without explanation, Carson did not appear on the panel.

In 2011, Carson told the Congressional Black Caucus that “some of them in Congress right now of this tea party movement would love to see you and me hanging on a tree” and accused tea party members of creating “the effort that we’re seeing of Jim Crow,” Politico reports.

Politico noted his spokesman Jason Tomcsi later explained, “The congressman used strong language because the tea party agenda jeopardizes our most vulnerable and leaves them without the ability to improve their economic standing.

“The tea party is protecting its millionaire and oil company friends while gutting critical services that they know protect the livelihood of African-Americans, as well as Latinos and other disadvantaged minorities.”
News Update

In 2012, Carson caused another flap while speaking to the Islamic Circle of North America by saying that “America will never tap into educational innovation and ingenuity without looking at the model that we have in our madrassas, in our schools, where innovation is encouraged, where the foundation is the Quran,” the Huffington Post reported.

Carson later released a statement explaining, “While I do not believe that any particular faith should be the foundation of our public schools, it is important that we take note of the instructional tools these schools utilize to empower their young people. Christian, Jewish, and Islamic schools have experienced notable success by casting off a one-size-fits-all approach to education, and this is a model we must replicate. Having attended a parochial elementary school myself, I’ve seen these successes first hand.”

Pelosi’s action “would make Carson the first Muslim to serve on the committee that receives intelligence on the threat of Islamic militants in the Middle East,” WorldNetDaily reported.

“Now, he’s going to be privy to some of the nation’s most sensitive intelligence.”
