Should America kowtow to Sharia Law?
The Hutton Hotel in Nashville has abruptly canceled an event scheduled for November 11th hosted by the Sharia Awareness Action Network and the Tennessee Freedom Coalition. One of the scheduled speakers for the event is an ACT! for America chapter leader who will be addressing issues such as grassroots organizing.
According to a news article:
A Nashville hotel has canceled its contract with an anti-Shariah conference out of fear the event could attract protests and disrupt business.
This is the second hotel to take such outrageous action in the past week. It’s clear they are knuckling under to complaints and threats from organizations such as CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations. What’s more, the hotels are in effect capitulating to sharia law provisions that suppress free speech.
We cannot allow this unacceptable and outrageous action to go unchallenged. We urge you to contact the hotel, and respectfully but firmly, voice your disapproval. Let the hotel know you will never stay there unless it reverses this decision, and that you will pass the word to friends and family encouraging them to do the same.
We recommend you contact the hotel by phone. The reason is that it’s easier for them to ignore you if you email. A deluge of phone calls will make it abundantly clear to them that the decision they made will be costly to them.
Please phone the hotel at 615.340.9333 and ask to speak to Steven Andre, the hotel manager or, if that person is unavailable, ask to speak to someone who handles public relations. If the phone is busy, try again later.
If you absolutely can’t place a call, send a firm, but respectful, email Mr. Andre at email@example.com.
And if you haven’t yet signed the pledge of support to protect your state from sharia law, please add your name today!
I emailed Mr. Andre, and I hope thousands of others do so as well.
Revised from an article on the web….

No, I really don’t see a pattern here to justify profiling, do you?
So, to ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatics intent on killing us, airport security screeners will no longer be allowed to profile certain people…
Absolutely No Profiling!
They must conduct random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, secret agents who are members of the President’s security detail, 85-year old
Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winner and former Governor Joe Foss, but leave Muslim Males alone lest they be guilty of profiling.
Have the American People completely lost their Minds, or just their Power of Reason???
As the writer of the award winning story ‘Forrest Gump’ so aptly put it, ‘Stupid Is As Stupid Does’
Came to me via the web:
Did you notice who Obama threatened when he wasn’t getting his way on raising the debt ceiling?
He threatened to not pay:
Social Security Retirees, Military Retirees, Social
Security disability and Federal Retirees.
Now…Let this sink in really well -
He did not threaten to stop payments to illegal aliens.
He did not threaten to take frivolous benefits such as Internet access away from violent inmates.
He did not offer to fire some of the thousands of unnecessary federal employees that he hired .
He did not offer to cut down on his or his wife’s frivolous gallivanting around the country and the world.
He did not threaten to not pay the senators and representatives or any of their staff.
He did not threaten to take benefits away from welfare recipients.
He did not threaten the food stamp programs.
He did not threaten to not pay foreign aid.
He did not threaten to cut back on anything that involves his base of voters.
Obama Admin Removes References of Islam from Terror Training Materials
Before you read this I’d like to comment. Do you think it’s possible that the Federal Government hasn’t noticed who’s been attacking the U.S.A. for the past two dozen or more years? Did they forget 9/11, the Cole, Lockerbie, a dozen other attacks, and even, possibly, the recent attempt to embarrass the U.S. by assassinating the Saudi ambassador on U.S. soil? But I understand why they’d stop mentioning that fact in their training materials…after all a Muslim group complained. I find the ignorance of the Fed to be offensive, dangerous, and possibly culpable with the Muslim goal of destroying capitalism, freedom, and eventually America. I’m beginning to wonder if U.S. policy isn’t dictated by Mecca. If the following announcement, proclamation, insane rambling, by the Department of Justice doesn’t astound you then you must be Muslim or as stupid or calculatingly hostile to the U.S. as is our own present administration:
Deputy U.S. Attorney General James Cole confirmed on Wednesday that the Obama administration was pulling back all training materials used for the law enforcement and national security communities, in order to eliminate all references to Islam that some Muslim groups have claimed are offensive.
“I recently directed all components of the Department of Justice to re-evaluate their training efforts in a range of areas, from community outreach to national security,” Cole told a panel at the George Washington University law school.
The move comes after complaints from advocacy organizations including the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and others identified as Muslim Brotherhood front groups in the 2004 Holy Land Foundation terror fundraising trial.
In a Wednesday Los Angeles Times op-ed, Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) president Salam al-Marayati threatened the FBI with a total cutoff of cooperation between American Muslims and law enforcement if the agency failed to revise its law enforcement training materials.
Maintaining the training materials in their current state “will undermine the relationship between law enforcement and the Muslim American community,” al-Marayati wrote.
Multiple online sources detail MPAC’s close alignment with CAIR.
In his op-ed, Al-Marayati demanded that the Justice Department and the FBI “issue a clear and unequivocal apology to the Muslim American community” and “establish a thorough and transparent vetting process in selecting its trainers and materials.”
Specifically, al-Marayati called for a new “interagency task force” to review the training materials — a task force including representatives of the Islamist organizations the FBI is tasked with monitoring.
Some believe the Obama administration’s Justice Department will go even further.
“The Attorney General has announced what sounds like reprogramming if they find people who have actually received training” that Islamist groups find objectionable, Center for Security Policy president Frank Gaffney told The Daily Caller. Gaffney is co-author of a report, published by the Center, titled “Sharia: The Threat to America.”
Dwight C. Holton, the U.S. Attorney in Oregon said he had spoken with Holder directly about the issue of the terror training materials. Holton is the federal prosecutor who announced the arrest of so-called “Christmas tree bomber” Mohamed Osman Mohamud in 2010. That announcement made no mention of Mohamud’s Muslim faith.
“I want to be perfectly clear about this: training materials that portray Islam as a religion of violence or with a tendency towards violence are wrong, they are offensive, and they are contrary to everything that this president, this attorney general and Department of Justice stands for,” Holton said Wednesday. “They will not be tolerated.”
Such training materials “pose a significant threat to national security, because they play into the false narrative propagated by terrorists that the United States is at war with Islam,” he added.

Pardon me while I go upchuck.
And we give foreign aid to these guys?
When we look at America’s budget, there are so many facets that seem completely ridiculous. Just think about it… we borrow money, because our appetite for spending exceeds our income. Then, we take it a step further and spend that money on nonsensical programs. In particular, we have a foreign aid program. This means that even though we don’t have enough money to pay our own bills, we borrow money so that we can give it to other countries. Here’s the kicker… one of the countries which receives American foreign aid is China — the country that is loaning us our extra money.
You read it right. We borrow money from China, then send them foreign aid. This just goes beyond insanity. As Fox News reports, “China is one of the biggest economies in the world and grew at more than 9 percent over the last year. It also has loaned more than $1 trillion to the U.S. to fund its deficit-spending.”
“Why in the world would we be borrowing money and then turn around and giving it back to the countries that we’re borrowing it from?” Republican Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma said. “If they have enough of a surplus to loan us money, they have enough of a surplus to take care of their own needs.”
Democratic Sen. Jim Webb of Virginia asked the same question in a recent appearance on Fox News: “Hey, in the crisis that we’re in right now, should we really be continuing to send American taxpayer dollars over to China for these purposes?”
I’m sorry, no disrepect to Sen. Webb, but did he really need to phrase that in the form of a question? The answer is obvious: NO! The idea of China receiving foreign aid is like America receiving foreign aid. Oh wait… we do… but it’s in the form of loans.
“I think the Chinese are just laughing whenever they receive a check,” said Dan Ikenson, a trade economist at the CATO Institute. “How silly this is of the United States to be subsidizing the faster-growing, second-largest economy in the world.”
This astonishment over aid to China is not exactly new. A story published in September 2010 in The Economic Times notes that “China spent tens of billions of dollars on a dazzling 2008 Olympics. It has sent astronauts into space. It recently became the world’s second largest economy. Yet it gets more than $2.5 billion a year in foreign government aid.”
Compared to countries like Japan, Germany, France, and Great Britain, the U.S. doesn’t give much to China (a mere $65 million in 2008), but why are we giving ANY money at all?
It is said that the true sign of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Well, America keeps spending and spending and spending, yet our leaders in Washington just expect the debt to magically disappear. No, stopping foreign aid to China and other countries will not solve our debt crisis. We need BIG changes for that. But at least by doing so, maybe we can appear less stupid than we are now.
