Secure American Culture

The Media Research Center (MRC) sent an email which I presume is a paid ad for the theme is the Secure Freedom survey which I believe was initially began in September 2015. The MRC alert email was sent on November 20, 2015. Secure Freedom is a project of Center for Security Policy (CSP) which is led by Frank Gaffney.

Since the MRC email is probably a paid ad I suspect the original goal was to lead readers to the Secure Freedom contribution webpage. I mention this only because I am not reposting the email as a part of the Secure Freedom fund raising project, but rather to promote support for what has been dubbed American Laws for American Courts (ALAC).

The function of ALAC is a constitutional method to ensure the supremacy of Constitutional Law over foreign laws from foreign lands. The aim is at Islam’s Sharia Law which is a rule of law observed by Muslims and many Muslim nations which is absolutely contrary to the rule of law embodied in the U.S. Constitution.

An ALAC website provides a very brief summary on its How ALAC Works page:

… (T)he American Laws for American Courts model legislation works to safeguard our individual constitutional liberties against the infiltration and creep of foreign legal systems, such as Shariah law.

As you will read in another ALAC website page – WHY AMERICAN LAWS FOR AMERICAN COURTS? – You will realize nearly zero Federal ALAC statutes are a part of America’s national rule of law because there are none. However you will discover that each State in the Union has the legal constitutional authority to pass laws guaranteeing that foreign laws DO NOT override the U.S. Constitution or the constitutional law of our American union of sovereign states.

Here’s the excerpt:

American constitutional rights must be preserved in order to preserve unique American values of liberty and freedom. State legislatures have a vital role to play in preserving those constitutional rights and American values of liberty and freedom.

America has unique values of liberty which do not exist in foreign legal systems, particularly Shariah Law. Included among, but not limited to, those values and rights are:

o Freedom of Religion

o Freedom of Speech

o Freedom of the Press

o Due Process

o Right to Privacy

o Right to Keep and Bear Arms

Civil and Criminal Law Serve as the Bedrock for American Values: We are a nation of laws.

Unfortunately, increasingly, foreign laws and legal doctrines, including Shariah law principles, are finding their way into US court cases.

Reviews of state laws provide extensive evidence that foreign laws and legal doctrines are introduced into US state court cases, including, notably, Islamic law known as Shariah, which is used in family courts and other courts in dozens of foreign Muslim-majority nations.

These foreign laws, frequently at odds with U.S. constitutional principles of equal protection and due process, typically enter the American court system through:

o Comity (mutual respect of each country’s legal system)

o Choice of law issues and

o Choice of forum or venue

Granting comity to a foreign judgment is a matter of state law, and most state and federal courts will grant comity unless the recognition of the foreign judgment would violate some important public policy of the state. This doctrine, the “Void as against Public Policy Rule,” has a long and pedigreed history.

Unfortunately, because state legislatures have generally not been explicit about what their public policy is relative to foreign laws, including as an example, Shariah, the courts and the parties litigating in those courts are left to their own devices – first to know what Shariah is, and second, to understand that granting comity to a Shariah judgment may be at odds with our state and federal constitutional principles in the specific matters at issue.

The goal of the American Laws for American Courts Act is a clear and unequivocal application of what should be the goal of all state courts: No U.S. citizen or resident should be denied the liberties, rights, and privileges guaranteed in our constitutional republic.

American Laws for American Courts is needed especially to READ ENTIRETY especially the sample legislation near the end

I live in the state of Oklahoma. Our state passed a pre-ALAC law by a people’s initiative that specifically targeted Sharia principles as incompatible with American laws. You probably won’t be surprised that a local Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) found a Federal Judge to rule that the State passed a law by a 70% margin of the voters as unconstitutional. Oklahoma was prepared for CAIR though, the state passed an ALAC version law on April 9, 2013 which was nearly three years after Oklahoma voters overwhelmingly passed an anti-Sharia law in 2010. The State House was 85 for and 7 against while the State Senate was 40 for and a mere 3 against.

Nine American States have successfully passed an ALAC version of legislation:

Nine states—Alabama, Arizona, Louisiana, Kansas, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Dakota and Tennessee—have enacted legislation regarding the application of foreign or religious law in state courts. Eight states did so via the legislature, and Alabama enacted a measure in 2013 to change the constitution. That measure was approved by the voters in 2014. Mississippi passed legislation in 2015. (STATE RESOURCES ON THE PROHIBITION OF THE USE OF FOREIGN OR RELIGIOUS LAW IN STATE COURTS; National Conference of State Legislatures; 4/13/2015)

Twenty American States have pending legislation of a version of ALAC:

Twenty states have introduced legislation in 2015 to restrict the use of foreign law in state courts, and Mississippi has enacted legislation on the topic in 2015. Currently eight states have laws prohibiting the use of foreign laws in state courts. For more information on those laws, please see NCSL’s resources on “Laws Regarding the Use of Foreign Law in State Courts.

2015 LEGISLATION … READ THE REST (2015 FOREIGN LAW LEGISLATION; National Conference of State Legislatures; 10/15/2015)

If you have been paying attention to the news lately you are aware of ISIS butchery in Syria/Iraq, ISIS terrorism on a Russian airliner, ISIS terrorism in Paris and al Qaeda related terrorism in Mali in West Africa. Immigration issues in Europe are beginning to be connected to Islamic terrorism. Also you should be aware that President Barack Hussein Obama has allowed a lot of Muslims termed as refugees who have already made the trek to ISIS. AND NOW Obama is forcing America to take on thousands of Muslim refugees from Syria – the Mordor of ISIS.

According to a 11/17/15 Newsmax story, Obama plans to bring Syrian refugees to the USA is highly skewed to 96% Muslims. ONLY about 3% are Christians. “Since 1991, it is estimated that over 100,000 Somali refugees have resettled to the United States.” These are some of the first Muslim refugees/immigrants to demonstrate a penchant for what politically correct pundits call radical Islam. So how does Barack Hussein Obama think that the paradigm of bringing Muslims from a radicalized area like Syria will be any different?

The Muslim-friendly Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies (ACRPS) polled 900 Syrian refugees spread around Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan in 2014 and found that 13% had a favorable opinion about ISIS (11/1/15 Clarion Project story by Ryan Mauro). Before the ISIS attack on November 13 in Paris, Obama announced in September a plan to bring 10,000 Syrian refugees in 2016. That means statistically over 1,000 may be supportive of Radical Islam. That is 1,000 potential future Islamic terrorists.

Check out this Obama idiocy:

That means that roughly 18 percent of Syria’s estimated 4 million refugees are Christians. So why have only less than 3 percent of the 2,184 Syrian refugees resettled in the United States from 2011 until now been Christians? (Why Are There Only 53 Christians Among America’s 2,184 Syrian Refugees? Morgan Lee; Christianity Today; 11/20/15)

At least 32 States are rejecting Obama Syrian refugee plan. This in spite of most Left Stream Media throwing support behind Obama’s resettlement program y propaganda by using Leftist social justice guilt on Americans that welcoming immigrants is part and parcel of American values as a melting pot.

Look at America’s history from colonial days through nationhood: From where do an overwhelming majority of our melting pot Americans come from? That would be some form of Christianity (Protestant, Catholic or Eastern Rite). And the minority of non-Christian immigrants: All conformed to Western ideals embodied in the U.S. Constitution via assimilation.

Do Muslims assimilate? MOST do not. Especially the less educated refugee type of Muslims devoted to Islamic Sharia Law.

So is it actually a travesty of American values if most Americans reject the concept of accommodating Muslim refugees? I say it is more of a travesty to bring non-conforming Muslims into an American culture that stands for everything Islam IS NOT.

During a press conference in Manila, President Obama chastises the GOP and their ensuing rhetoric over Syrian refugees as a “potent recruitment tool for ISIL”

Obama and his Leftist cadres have a closer affinity to self-destructive Leftist values than toward traditional American values.

Thank God Almighty for the Governors that know the difference between Leftist values and American values.

Map of States not wanting Syrian Refugees

Just like the existence of sanctuary cities as safe havens for illegal immigrants, there are American cities promoting the acceptance of Syrian Refugees even in States against refugee accommodation.

Map- Mayors favoring Syrian Refugees

As long as a Leftist agenda is successful in bringing counter-culture Muslims to America, Americans must protect and ensure that our American Constitutional Liberties are protected from Multicultural concepts of accommodating Muslims who desire Sharia even though it is contrary to the U.S. Constitution.

Shariah or the U.S. Constitution?

Please note that the following message reflects the opinions and representations of Secure Freedom alone, and not necessarily the opinion or editorial positions of the Media Research Center. (MRC)

Should Islam’s Supremacist Shariah Be Allowed to Transform America?

Fellow American,

Your answers are urgently needed on our National Citizen Opinion Survey about the growing foothold Islamic supremacists and their agenda for dominating the world known as Shariah are achieving in America.

Photo Sharia Law in USA

Alarmingly, those who believe Islam and its repressive anti-Constitutional Shariah must rule the whole world, are making serious inroads in towns and cities right here in America – sometimes with our own tax dollars!

What’s more, the followers of Islam’s Shariah are not simply believers in a “religion.” Instead, they are waging jihad (holy war) – in one form or another – to force the whole world to submit to their dictates, non-Muslim and Muslim alike . . .

. . . even coercing or forcing what we would consider to be “the good Muslims” to join them in conforming to Shariah.

And with illegal and legal Muslim immigration in America growing at record rates, Shariah-adherent immigrants are challenging the Judeo-Christian foundation of our U.S. Constitution, our culture and values – often in ways unknown to most Americans.

Worse yet, Islamic leaders are cleverly using our own 1st Amendment rights to establish and defend so-called “Islamic Centers” here in our country, that in reality are Shariah-adherent mosques that advance “Jihad” against America . . .

. . . often providing safe-havens for terrorist recruitment and indoctrination in their quest for world dominance and power.

That’s why it’s so vital for you to sign and return your National Citizen Opinion Survey in support of keeping U.S. courts and government agencies from enabling Shariah law to take hold here.

Whether or not this problem has affected your area yet, just think about this:

o An undercover investigation found that a staggering 80% of Islamic mosques or “cultural centers” in America are under the influence of the Shariah-promoting Saudi (Wahabbist) wing of Islam. Under Shariah, gender and religion determine specific “rights” in ways at odds with our Constitutional ones.

o And Shariah promotes “jihad” . . . violence and terrorism against all Islamic “non-believers.”

And unless thousands of freedom-loving citizens like you share their views with key community leaders and our legislators to stop the creeping political influence of supremacist Islam and Shariah in America, all we need to do is look to Europe to see where our country is headed.

Great Britain now has 85 Shariah courts. In Germany, Shariah law has been used to defend a husband’s right to beat his wife and practice polygamy. France has overhauled its domestic tax laws to accommodate “Islamic Finance.”

Just think about what is already happening in America:

Secure Freedom has identified 146 U.S. court cases in which an attempt was made to use Shariah to decide the dispute. In one in five instances, the judge agreed. We expect those numbers to grow. And recently, a group of Muslims in northern Texas tried to establish the first official “Islamic tribunal” to dispense Shariah law in the United States.

How can this be happening in our country?

It’s because of a clever technique used by a particularly dangerous Islamic supremacist group, the Muslim Brotherhood. They call it “civilization jihad,” a term that describes how the Brotherhood is aiming at, in their words, “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within.”

Here are some of the ways the civilization jihadist leaders are stealthily trying to take us down:

o Islamists are placing Muslim Brothers into positions as advisors to and, in some cases as employees of, our government – placements that facilitate their insidious influence operations.

o Islamists seek to prevent our free speech – particularly the kind that might allow us to understand and effectively counteract their secretive assaults on our country and its institutions.

o Islamists are trying to use the “Common Core” curriculum – our children’s textbooks – to promote Islamic supremacism in our academic institutions.

o Islamists are working to insinuate Shariah into U.S. courts and establish their own parallel “Islamic tribunals” to subvert our rule of law and Constitution.

o Islamists are using our immigration system – especially our refugee resettlement program – to engage in what the Islamic supremacists call the hijra, a Muslim colonization of America.

o Islamists enlist leaders of other faiths through so-called “interfaith dialogue” to obscure and enable what is fundamentally a subversive political, not a legitimate religious, agenda. And,

o Islamists use what is known as “Shariah-Compliant Finance” to penetrate and coopt our capitalist system.

While the Europeans are further down the tubes than we are at the moment, I think you’ll agree there is reason to believe we are catching up. For example:

o Many national food chains are selling unmarked Shariah-compliant “Halal” meat (the animal is ritually-slaughtered by a Muslim who sacrifices it to Allah), unbeknownst to most Americans who are buying and consuming it.

o Our own U.S. Treasury Dept. has hosted in its headquarters a course called “Islam Finance 101” to promote Shariah-compliant financial activities. And today, most of our major banks and financial institutions – including one-time government-owned and taxpayer-funded AIG – offer “Shariah-Compliant” products that are overseen by Muslim “scholars” to ensure they comply with Islamic law.

o Some public and taxpayer-funded university gyms are now providing separate hours for male and female swimming . . . to comply with Shariah laws for Islamic followers.

o Several years ago, at a Tyson’s chicken processing plant in Tennessee, the American Labor Day holiday was REPLACED with an Islamic religious holiday. A public outcry forced the company to reverse that decision, but it did so by making accommodations for both holidays.

o A New Jersey judge denied a protective order to a Moroccan-American woman being systematically beaten and tortured by her Muslim husband on the grounds that he was just practicing his faith according to Shariah. And in Virginia, an Islamic school operating under Shariah not only ignored the reports by a little girl that she was being molested by her father, but the principal sent her home for him to “handle it”.

o A Muslim father murdered his two daughters in Houston a few years ago in an act known as “honor killing” for dating American boys. Others are having their girls’ genitals mutilated – yes, here in the United States.

So you can see why it is so critical to the future of America to participate in this unprecedented national effort. We must shine the light of day on how supremacist Islam and Shariah are gaining ground. And we must get millions of our fellow citizens behind our effort to prevent Shariah from taking hold here and to counter the jihad of all kinds in America.

So I hope you will do your part by answering and submitting your National Citizen Opinion Survey and join in our fight to push back on the Islamic supremacists and their Shariah agenda.

I am emailing you and a few other key people in your area who I thought would be most likely to help us stop this growing threat.

My name is Frank Gaffney. I am the founder and President of Secure Freedom (also known as the Center for Security Policy). For twenty-seven years, we have forged partnerships between elected and other government officials, past and present military leaders, experts and citizens like you to safeguard our U.S. national security against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

Since before the attacks by jihadists on 9/11, we have been investigating and challenging Islamic supremacism, and the growing influence of Sharia in America.

Perhaps you’ve seen me as a guest on Fox News and other media outlets warning about Shariah. They call me or a member of my staff when they need an expert on how Islamic supremacism, its Shariah program and jihad are becoming problems for Americans, not just somewhere else, but here at home, as well.

Make no mistake. These threats will destroy America from within – unless we stop them.

That’s why we’ve launched a major national educational campaign to expose millions of Americans to the truth and mobilize them to turn this crisis around now . . . before it’s too late.

We hold strategic briefings and training programs for key community leaders, legislators, law enforcement and military personnel, pastors and others to warn them about the dangers of civilization jihad, as well as the violent kind, right here in our own country. We also equip these partners with strategies for defeating the jihadists.

We have modeled our strategic approach after the one my old boss, President Reagan, used to defeat the last totalitarian ideology that tried to take us down: Soviet communism. We call it the Secure Freedom Strategy.

If you would like to know what we are recommending to bring all instruments of national power to bear against today’s ideological counterpart to communism, Shariah, you can check out this strategy for free at

And if you want to learn more about the how the Muslim Brotherhood’s “civilization jihadist” techniques in our country, visit our free, online course at or download for free our publications at

You may have also heard me discuss this issue on my nationally syndicated show, Secure Freedom Radio. You can also catch our podcasts at any time at

I am anxious to see your response to the National Citizen Opinion Survey because I suspect it will confirm my experience . . .

. . . when Americans are exposed to the facts – without “politically correct,” but factually wrong, statements from our government or media lies and distortions – they will join in taking the steps needed NOW to help prevent Islamic supremacism from securing an ever-larger foothold here, and ensure that every person residing in this country, no matter their religious, ethnic or cultural background, lives by America’s Constitutional rule of law.

So, can I count on you to take just a few minutes right now to give me your opinions on the National Citizen Opinion Survey and help us show our leaders how powerfully the American people want us to counter jihad? I pray you will do so.

That’s because, incredible as it may seem – like many of their constituents – an awful lot of local, state and even federal legislators and officials are unaware of the progress being made by Islamic supremacists determined first to insinuate, then to impose, Shariah in our country. That’s why Secure Freedom must not only educate the public, but also our representatives, about the necessity of preventing this impending national crisis.

But we have a major obstacle facing us.

Muslim Brotherhood-associated organizations like the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) are trying to suppress the sort of information we need to get out. Their influence operations against our government, media and elites – in which they call truth-tellers “Islamophobes,” “racists” and “bigots” – all-too-often succeed in enforcing Shariah blasphemy restrictions on free expression.

This is all the more outrageous since, in a speech, a former Chairman of CAIR proclaimed:

“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth”.

Chilling words indeed!

The rise of the barbaric Islamic State (ISIS) and the resurgence of al Qaeda and its affiliates have begun to arouse many of our countrymen and women to the ever-expanding forces of Shariah-adherent Muslims and the clear and present danger their violent jihad increasingly poses to our homeland and citizens.

Now we need to ensure that our fellow Americans are aware as well of the other principal form of jihad – the Muslim Brotherhood’s civilization jihad.

With your help and the help of others today, I feel confident that we can effectively counter these stealthy Islamic supremacists and the agenda they share with the violent jihadists: imposing Shariah on America.

Currently, Secure Freedom’s “Counter Jihad Campaign” is working on 4 principal fronts. For our efforts to succeed we must:

1) Contact and educate at least 3 million key Americans like yourself, by exposing them to information about the Islamists’ insidious threat to America.

We want to do that by sharing with them informational letters and getting feedback in our National Citizens Opinion Survey. Funds permitting, we want to distribute our free mini-book with highlights of Shariah, The Threat to America – It contains all you need to know about Islamic supremacism and what its practitioners have in mind for you. Our goal is to do this within the next 60 days.

Then, we must communicate to state, local and federal leaders the results of our Survey to ensure there are, at a minimum, no more jihadists or additional jihadist mosques and organizations allowed to operate in this country and to begin effectively countering those already here.

2) Take out newspaper and radio advertisements, use the Internet – even produce TV ads – to expose the truth about Shariah to tens of millions of citizens and create even more public pressure to defeat jihad.

3) Ramp up our ongoing work to foster among key groups – law enforcement, veterans and other military personnel, pastors and community leaders – awareness of and what to do about the insidious, and growing, Islamic supremacist movement.

Such folks have, after all, an urgent need to know of this danger since in many cases, their towns, cities or states are being systematically subjected to the Islamists’ civilization jihad, colonization or other subversive operations.

4) And I must continue holding one-on-one strategy sessions with Members of Congress, presidential candidates, leading folks in the media and other influential figures in our effort to encourage the necessary course-correction for our country. We have to educate them about the true nature of Shariah and the imperative of preventing it from subverting our Constitution and way of life.

Simply put, Shariah is anti-Constitutional and incompatible with the rule of law in a republic such as ours.

That’s because our Constitution guarantees that every individual citizen is “endowed by our Creator” with an identical set of rights, no matter their gender or religion. But if the Islamic supremacists succeed in hiding their true agenda and the progress they are making towards realizing it, they will continue to erode our freedom of speech and other rights and continue to subvert our country.

By engaging our legislators, enlisting our community leaders and educating millions of concerned Americans around the county with information kits and critical alerts, I believe this is a battle we can win. But not without help like yours and others who we are asking to give us a hand.

And our first and most critical step is to get my email and this National Citizen Opinion Survey to at least 3 million like-minded citizens starting within the next 60 days. And that’s where your assistance is sorely needed.

Yes, we have our work cut out for us, but please know that the Secure Freedom team has the unique expertise needed for us to succeed on this critical task.

But because Secure Freedom is a non-profit organization, our funds are very limited. We must ensure that our financial resources are used to the greatest possible effect.

And today I was only able to afford to contact you and others who I felt would be most likely to help us.

In fact, you are among the first citizens to receive Secure Freedom’s National Citizen Opinion Survey on Islamic supremacism in America.

It was important to me that you be one of the first to be invited to help with this campaign. Along with your answers to our Survey today, will you also include a generous donation to our effort – $20 or $25, or even $50, $100, $200 or more if you can possibly afford it? Even $15 would be a blessing.

I know in these hard economic times, many people are tightening their belts and making financial contributions wisely. But an investment in the work of Secure Freedom is one of the wisest contributions you can make, as it is truly unique and urgently needed.

If you and I do not make the effort NOW to stop the Islamic supremacists and their jihad and Shariah from gaining more ground, I shudder to think what America will look like just a few short years from now – and how it will afflict our children and grandchildren.

Perhaps this problem has not directly affected you or your community, yet. But I can assure you, with Muslim immigration at record rates and the success of the Islamists’ civilization jihad, it soon will.

So please join us in working to counter jihad and secure freedom by completing the National Citizen Opinion Survey – a critical first step in helping us protect our Constitution and our country in these difficult and increasingly dangerous times.

With heartfelt thanks for your help,

Frank Gaffney
Founder and President, Secure Freedom

P.S. Remember, too many Americans are unaware of the tremendous inroads being achieved by the Islamic supremacists’ global effort to bring Shariah to towns and cities right here in America – often with our very own tax dollars and, in some cases, with the help of the United Nations.

They don’t yet know what you now do: Shariah makes Islam into much more than a “religion.” It is nothing less than a truly global political and military offensive against America and the West. With thousands of mosques in America advancing this program here via stealthy forms of jihad as well, occasionally, as violent ones, we must act now!

It’s vital for you to complete the National Citizen Opinion Survey right away to help us create the massive public pressure needed to counter this jihad and keep Shariah from subverting our Constitution and rights in our courts, media, churches, financial sector and government.

So, please let me hear back from you today. And I hope you’ll be as generous as you can to help us fund this unprecedented national educational and advocacy campaign. Thank you.

Islam Corrupts Public Education

Justin begins his first paragraph about the Public School systems across America ramming Islamic indoctrination or propaganda into non-Muslim students while slighting the Christian heritage of America’s history. Here are some examples I found corresponding to the States mentioned in Justin’s “Islam Corrupts Public Education”:

Islam Corrupts Public Education

By Justin O. Smith

Sent: 10/3/2015 1:54 PM

America’s children are being indoctrinated in U.S. public schools, from Florida to Minnesota and California to Tennessee, through Islamic propaganda in the school’s curriculum that is nothing less than political reeducation disguised as “sensitivity training”. They are being sensitized into viewing Islam sympathetically and as a “religion of peace”, despite all evidence to the contrary, through politically correct messages and base Islamic lies that are aimed at developing “cultural awareness” and “tolerance”, regarding Muslims and Islam, and defusing the fact that Islam is a violent ideology that regularly spawns religiously motivated terrorist attacks, such as 9/11 and the Boston Bombing.

The textbooks are “white-washing” the Islamic faith. Islam is characterized as the underdog suffering injustice, while Christians and Jews are suggested to be unwilling to transcend prejudice and ill-will in order to allow Islam to have equal expression. And yet, there is not any mention of the hundreds of thousands of Christians and Jews being slaughtered and beheaded by Islamofascists across the Middle East or that the 9/11 abattoir was committed by Muslims opposed to our free exercise of religion and our pluralism and tolerance of all.

In an education climate heavily controlled by anti-Christian Progressives, atheists and the ACLU, public schools barely allow Christians to even pray, display the Ten Commandments and read the Bible on their breaks __ their own time __ even though this is protected under the First Amendment. These anti-Christian elements would never teach Christianity in the same manner, as they now teach Islam in the public schools.

With hypocrisy and double-standards on full display, public schools across the U.S. have adopted programs, such as the Islam Project, and they are blatantly violating the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment, according to the Family Policy Network, the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) and millions of Americans. These programs promote an agenda that requires, among a long list of other inappropriate and unconstitutional items, that students learn the five pillars of Islam, recite Islamic prayers such as “all people must submit to Allah” and “there is no God but Allah” and learn that Muslims worship the same God as Christians and Jews, a base, outright lie.

In April of this year, Union Grove High school in Wisconsin gave a writing assignment “Pretend you are Muslim”, and not long afterwards, Carly Gammill, an ACLJ attorney, explained to their school district officials that Islam could not be presented in this manner without breaking the law: “By requiring the students to adopt the viewpoint of a Muslim, union Grove has gone well beyond teaching ‘about’ religion. In fact, this advancement of the Muslim viewpoint is specifically what the Supreme Court has deemed a direct violation of the First Amendment.”

In September 2015, parents in Rutherford, Williamson, Maury, Sumner and other Tennessee counties, were furious over the same sort of indoctrination tactics occurring in their schools; however, some administrators, like Rutherford County [one source 9/30/15] Superintendent Don Odom, claimed it was out of the School Board’s hands and blamed the textbook publishers and the state, while others, like Wilson County Director Donna Wright, claimed no wrong was committed. Some of these administrators are simply feckless and ill-informed, and others are knowingly supporting and advancing Islam and discriminating against Christianity and Judaism, in line with the theory that the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

In a deceptive and disingenuous statement, Paul Galloway, who is a Muslim and executive director for the American Center for Outreach, said: “To learn what the first pillar is has nothing to do with indoctrination. You can’t trick someone into being a Muslim.”

Galloway dismisses the fact that these are children in the 6th and 7th grades, who are in their most impressionable and formative years. Any seed of knowledge must be planted with care and full and honest discussion, and in regards to one’s worldview and religion, that responsibility must remain under the domain of the parents concerning the guidance of their children.

Just as Representative Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) stated on September 8th: “There is a big difference between education and indoctrination.”

Reported first by the ‘Columbia Daily Herald’, imagine the righteous anger that flowed from Maury County parents, such as Brandee Porterfield and Joy Ellis, when they discovered their twelve year old children were taught the Islamic conversion prayer and made to write the “Shahada” — “There is no God but Allah; Mohammed is the Messenger of Allah.” And next, they were told by Dr. Jan Hanvey that Christianity would not be covered at Spring Hill Middle School, “because Christianity is not in the school standards.”

Pastor Greg Locke of Mt Juliet, TN (Wilson Co) noted that there is only “a half page of watered-down Christianity” being taught in the sixth grade, while 28 pages of Islamic curriculum are being taught. Locke and many families are highly upset “over all this new Islamic indoctrination in our school system”, which they call “absolute brainwashing”. Adding insult to injury, the Wilson County school system exhibited incredible insensitivity by scheduling a test on Islamic curriculum on Sept. 11th, however, the ensuing uproar in the community forced its delay.

Predictably, Christian parents across the country are also upset to find that the study guide section of ‘Origins of Islam’ presents as fact statements such as, “Around the age of 40, the angel Gabriel told Mohammed that he was to be a prophet of Allah.”

Imagine the outcry we would hear from the soulless Progressives, atheists and Muslims, if students were told that they had to pray the Lord’s Prayer, memorize the Ten Commandments, state that “Jesus is the Messiah” and fast during Lent. Even if we cannot fully or completely explain why Islam is being favored by the U.S. Board of Education and many state and local education boards, the duplicity of the public education system is apparent in regards to Islam.

State Representative Andy Holt (R-Dresden/TN) wrote in his blog: “While I can certainly understand the desire for cultural knowledge, it must never be at the cost of our cultural identity. Many of our children are not being taught the Ten Commandments in school, but instead the Five Pillars of Islam and the ‘Prophet’ Mohammed as a sovereign to Jesus Christ.”

The pro-Islam bias and precepts towards conversion to Islam in public schools must be ended, and all those government officials, educators and superintendents responsible for this situation across America must be held accountable through more than just petitions and lawsuits. Textbook contracts can be voided on the basis of multiple factual errors. Teachers can introduce new curriculum that meets their communities’ approval, with little to zero added cost. And, superintendents unable or unwilling to cooperate can be fired, defeated in special elections and impeached, their contracts ended and damn the cost: America’s parents must join ranks forcefully to ensure that our children receive an honest and fact-based education — the best possible education — through a system built on integrity, incorrupt from exalting Islam above all other beliefs.

Govt. Temporarily Refunded – Baby Parts Keep Rolling

John R. Houk

© October 1, 2015

WARNING! – Graphic Video toward bottom – Children should not see this

Congress passed a Continuing Resolution (CR) yesterday to keep the government funded yesterday. The controversy in this 9/30/15 CR was it kept the baby killing and baby parts selling organization Planned Parenthood fully funded. Apparently ALL the Democrats made sure the baby killing and the trafficking in baby parts continued. Sadly the Republicans split on murdering babies and trafficking in live baby parts with the majority voting no for the CR.

The Senate easily approved the interim funding measure earlier Wednesday on a vote of 78-20.

While Congress has funded the government at least through December, the the [sic] funding of Planned Parenthood has angered conservative Republicans who argue GOP leadership has not fought hard enough for their values.

Indeed, the measure passed with a majority of Democratic votes — 186 Democrats voted in favor of the spending bill and 151 Republicans voted against it. Ninety-one Republicans voted for the short-term funding measure. President Obama is expected to sign it today, before funding expires at midnight. (SHUTDOWN AVERTED: HOUSE PASSES FUNDING BILL DESPITE MAJORITY OF GOP ‘NO’ VOTES; By CAROLINE MAY; Breitbart.comBig Government; 9/30/15)

I haven’t checked to see how many GOP Senators voted for the CR but it must have been a bunch for a 70-20 favorable vote. In the HOUSE NINETY-ONE Republicans voted for baby killing and marketing live baby parts in the name of keeping the government afloat.

On Wednesday September 16 on the CNN-GOP debate Carly Fiorina gave a vivid description of harvesting a live baby for body parts (which means a live birth then murdered and then dissected for internal organs). The Leftists cried boohoo and foul for the CMP video exposés implicating Planned Parenthood had no action of Fiorina’s description but only a description. THE THING IS Carly was talking about some video action that was not a part of CMP video releases. As a reminder, here’s what Carly Fiorina ACCURATELY described:

VIDEO: Carly Fiorina Response to Planned Parenthood on CNN Debate | The Blaze


I can’t assert this is the specific video that Presidential candidate for the GOP nomination viewed, but it is remarkably similar to her description. Due to the graphic nature I am beginning with the Youtube description first. Then I will show the roughly fifteen minute video.

Carly Fiorina was right

Published by AbortionNo

Published on Sep 29, 2015

Carly Fiorina, CNN Republican presidential debate, September 16, 2015:

“Watch a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking, while someone says, ‘We have to keep it alive to harvest its brain.’ This is about the character of our nation, and if we will not stand up and force President Obama to veto this [Planned Parenthood defunding] bill, shame on us.”

Ms. Fiorina was referring to a Center for Bio-Ethical Reform (CBR) video depicting a few seconds of a 17-½ week fetus, still alive and moving, following an intact-delivery abortion. Here we post the entire unedited video. The total running time is approximately 13 minutes and the video is in five segments as the camera operator turns the camera on and off.

CBR and the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), in whose undercover Planned Parenthood investigative video the CBR abortion footage appears, have been falsely accused of misrepresenting a miscarriage as an abortion. The first segment of the unedited video depicts the abortion itself, with the baby delivered alive and struggling in the abortionist’s gloved hand. Segments 2 and 3 depict the baby still moving in a stainless steel pan after repeatedly being handled abusively by the abortionist. Segments 4 and 5 are static gynecological shots of the baby’s mother.

This unedited version of the disputed footage proves incontestably that this termination is an abortion. Mothers at risk of miscarriage present at hospitals, not abortion clinics. Hospitals are in the business of sustaining pregnancies and saving babies. Abortion clinics are in the business of terminating pregnancies and killing babies. This video depicts a termination and the subsequent abuse and neglect of a preemie obviously delivered alive. No attempt is made to provide the neonatal intensive care a hospital would extend to a wanted baby. It is possible that the abortionists performing this termination violated both state and federal law by withholding care from a baby who survived an abortion.

Ms. Fiorina made reference to a baby’s heart still beating while its brain was being harvested (a process which Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services calls “digging”) and a former StemExpress “procurement technician” says, “I’m sitting here and I’m looking at this fetus and its heart is beating, and I don’t know what to think” (National Review, August 19, 2015). The article adds that “… her StemExpress supervisor instructed her to cut through the face of the fetus in order to get the brain.”

The unedited version of this abortion depicts an intact-delivery termination and Planned Parenthood partner StemExpress admits through its CEO (Cate Dyer), “Oh yeah, if you had intact cases, which we’ve done a lot, we sometimes ship those back to our lab in its entirety …” (The Daily Signal, August 21, 2015).

A World Magazine article, August 19, 2015, describes “… an aborted baby’s beating heart, a post-abortion occurrence that’s not uncommon, according to Ben Van Handel, executive director of Novogenix Laboratories.”

Ms. Fiorina’s characterizations are not hyperbole.

The terms of our abortion clinic access agreements explicitly forbid us from disclosing any information which could identify the abortion providers from whose clinics we obtain imagery. Dates, locations, affiliations and staff and patient information are confidential. Violating these prohibitions could subject CBR to legal liability and jeopardize clinic access for current and future projects. We are even obligated to delete the audio track on all of our videos.

The Grantham Collection is a component of the CBR abortion imagery archive. Questions related to this very disturbing video should be directed to Gregg Cunningham,, 949-206-0600.

Addendum: Medical malpractice lawsuits have become so common that OB/GYNs practice defensive medicine. They protect themselves by over-diagnosing, over-treating and over-prescribing. No doctor delivering this baby as a preemie in a hospital would fail to provide neonatal intensive care. Even if he had no compassion for the baby or his parents, he would provide care to avoid being sued for negligence. Warren Hern, in his book “Abortion Practice” warns of the difficulty in estimating fetal ages. A baby moving as vigorously as this one is presumptively entitled to care and would receive it — unless the attending physician is an abortionist, which is the case here.

Miscarried embryos and fetuses are virtually all still births involving a baby who expired in the uterus and was later born dead. A preemie in a hospital is born alive and given intensive care — not slapped around in a pan as happened here with a baby who survived the abortion depicted at the beginning of the video.

God have mercy on the voters that voted for Senators and Representatives who supported the Continued Resolution without defunding Planned Parenthood. The baby killing entrepreneurs of Planned Parenthood has made America complicit in the murder of children.

I am pleased my Oklahoma District One Representative Jim Bridenstine voted NO.

A Failure To Govern

Rep. Bridenstine Votes “No” on Continuing Resolution

By Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK 1)

Sent: 9/30/2015 8:30 PM

Jim’s Blog Website

Today I voted “No” on the Continuing Resolution (CR). Continuing Resolutions are a failure to govern, a failure to represent the people, and a failure to exercise the power of the purse.

The House passed the bills to fund the government in the proper process. The Senate failed to take up any of them due to Democrat filibusters. Accordingly, a CR was presented as the only option for funding the federal government.

Representatives should be able to appropriate funds for programs the people approve and withdraw funds from those they oppose. In Federalist 58, James Madison said, “The power over the purse may, in fact, be regarded as the most complete and effectual weapon with which any constitution can arm the immediate representatives of the people…”

I have never voted for a CR. Those who voted for the “clean” CR today, or any of the numerous CRs over the past 7 years, voted to fund Planned Parenthood, the President’s unconstitutional executive amnesty, sanctuary cities, Obamacare, and the Iran nuclear deal. There is nothing “clean” about this process. In passing a CR, Congress abandons its representative duty and fails to fulfill the role given to it by the Constitution.

Rep. Jim Bridenstine Votes to Stop the Iran Deal


On September 11th the House voted on three bills to stop President Obama’s atrocious Iran nuclear agreement. These bills make clear that the American people, acting through their elected representatives, reject the President’s capitulation to Iran. America’s next President can — and should — end the agreement on day one and restart the most effective sanctions regime ever created. The Iran deal will endanger the security of America and our closest allies and partners, as I have explained at length (here and here).

I’m with Dr. Carson on Constitution and Islam

John R. Houk

© September 22, 2015

I’m not exactly a proponent for Dr. Ben Carson for President. Like most Conservatives I think he is a real nice guy that took it to Obama at a Prayer Breakfast. But I have a sense Dr. Carson will be too easily manipulated by advisors who know their stuff about national or geopolitical issues. AND YET he made some recent comments on the compatibility of Islam and the Constitution that I hugely agree with and added some more respect for Dr. Carson’s beliefs. On Sunday’s Meet The Press Dr. Carson was interviewed. Toward the end of that interview a question arose from Chuck Todd:

“Let me ask you the question this way: Should a President’s faith matter? Should your faith matter to voters?”

And so the conversation proceeded as such:


Well, I guess it depends on what that faith is. If it’s inconsistent with the values and principles of America, then of course it should matter. But if it fits within the realm of America and consistent with the constitution, no problem.


So do you believe that Islam is consistent with the constitution?


No, I don’t, I do not.


So you—


I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that. (Meet the Press Transcript – September 20, 2015;; 9/20/15 12:23 PM ET)

VIDEO: Ben Carson Does ‘Not Advocate’ A Muslim As President (Full Interview) | Meet The Press | NBC News [Full video: 9:41. Carson/Muslim portion begins about 7:51]

As a rule these days I rarely watch the Lame Stream Media because it is too slanted to the Left. Indeed I heard of the Carson/Muslim controversy on Fox News. Now I wasn’t surprised that the Lame Stream Media, Leftist pundits and Muslim-American advocacy groups (groups that are actually Quran literalists) criticized Carson as a religious Islamophobe bigot. I wasn’t even surprised that RINOs joined the Left in criticizing Dr. Carson. BUT was surprised and disappointed that a significant amount of reputed Conservatives especially among those running for POTUS were critical of Dr. Carson’s stand.

Dr. Carson is absolutely correct! If a Muslim stands with the basic tenets of the Quran and Sharia Law, that Islam is totally INCOMPATIBLE with the U.S. Constitution. Such a Muslim SHOULD NOT be voted into any Office in the USA in which the Constitution is a part of the swearing in for service in any government institution rather it be Federal, State or Local.

AND such a belief does not contradict the Constitution in either Article VI of the Constitution or the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights.

Article VI (Pertaining to Religious Test for Office)

The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the members of the several state legislatures, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states, shall be bound by oath or affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States. (Bold Text MineU.S. ConstitutionArticle VI; Cornell Law School – Legal Information Institute)

First Amendment

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. (Bold Text from website – Amendment I; National Constitution Center)

I bring attention to these two portions of the Constitution because Dr. Carson’s critics use them as a gotcha to smear Dr. Carson’s opinion. Of note I ran into a post (Google surfing) in which former long-time Fox & Friends co-host Alisyn Camerota badgered Dr. Carson’s business manager Armstrong Williams over the stipulation that the tenets of Islam are not compatible to the Constitution and those Dr. Carson would not “advocate” for a Muslim President.

The now Lame Stream Media Left Wing Camerota said Carson’s opinion is only representative of the so-called minority of Islam and not mainstream Islam AND further Camerota proclaimed that Carson’s views violate the Constitution.

Pertaining to Islam: If a Muslim does not take the entirety of Quran as the uncreated words of Allah then you are a bad Muslim. This is why you will rarely hear so-called Moderate Muslims criticize the so-called Radical Muslim’s reasoning but maybe or perhaps criticize the so-called Radical’s actions. To criticize reasoning directly from the Quran is blasphemous. The Quran tells Muslims that blaspheming Islam is worthy of deaththis is not a metaphorical death. Look around Muslim majority nations. Muslims angry over some perceived blasphemy rioting oft times in violence are not representative of a minority opinion. Those rioting Muslims are representative of the majority and they are seriously and violently enraged against a perceived blasphemer.

ERGO Camerota’s finger pointing of dividing the majority from the minority within Islam is pure hogwash (pun intended).

THEN Camerota’s accusation that Dr. Carson is advocating an unconstitutional opinion is a load of Leftist bilge. Dr. Carson as much right to advocate NOT voting for a Muslim as a Muslim has a right to not vote for a Christian because they believe Jesus died on the Cross, arose bodily from the grave AND is the Son of God – all blasphemous notions in Islam (Pro-Islam website agreement: HERE and HERE). AND the tenets of the Quran and Sharia ARE diametrically opposed to that which the U.S. Constitution stands for. Should start calling all Muslims – even the alleged peaceful Muslims – Christophobes because their tenets say the centrality of Christianity is blasphemous hence deserving of death?

AGAIN – a bunch of Camerota Leftist-apologist hogwash.

A Heaven or Hell Decision

Intro to Smith ‘A Heaven or Hell Decision’

Intro by John R. Houk

Author: Justin O. Smith

Posted September 11, 2015

Kim Davis should contemplate changing her political affiliation from a Democrat to a Republican or Independent. Ms. Davis was recently incarcerated for being in contempt to a judicial order to issue same-sex Marriage Certificates to homosexual couples. She refused to violate the conscience of her Biblical faith. Ms. Davis’ Democrat political party’s platform is supportive of various Biblically ungodly stands including the Dem’s homosexual rights stand (1980 and 2012).

Justin Smith addresses the constitutional issues and judicial activism in relation to Kim Davis’ persecution for her Christian convictions. In relation to the Christian faith Justin looks at the majority opinion of Justice Hugo Black (examining Justice Black through the lens of Everson v. Board of Education – looks at consistency more than criticism) in the 1947 decision attached to Everson v. Board of Education. That SCOTUS case made words written by Thomas Jefferson to the Danbury Baptist Church pertaining the separation of Church and State as part of America’s rule of law over 150 after the U.S. Constitution was ratified. The thing is there is NO SUCH LANGUAGE in the U.S. Constitution including the first ten amendments known as the Bill of Rights.

Justice Hugo Black tossed out constitutional Original Intent in favor of the fallacious concept of a Living Constitution that can be judicially modified to fit any court’s concept of what is a valid right for the present. The Living Constitution concept essentially circumvents the Constitution’s paradigm for alterations to said Constitution. Understand this: The Constitution does not empower the Judicial Branch to create law on any level including the Supreme Court.

The Christian Answers Network takes a brief look at judicial case law that led up Justice Black’s 1947 decision in Everson v. Board of Education. If you at that web page you will notice how SCOTUS slowly began to assert Judicial Activism for creating law ex nihilo. Here is a great quote on SCOTUS judicial fiat/law ex nihilo:

In Federalist No. 78, Alexander Hamilton wrote that the Judiciary would be the weakest of the three branches of government, but over time and with the expansion of the power of judicial review it has arguably become the strongest. The problem with this is that justices now routinely substitute their own personal judgment for what is equitable rather than deferring to the Constitution. What has resulted is unelected, unaccountable judges making policy decisions for the country.

Far from the intent of the Founders, this is neither democracy nor representative government; it is five judges imposing their desire for social change on the country by judicial fiat. READ ENTIRETY (The Same-Sex Marriage Decision: Ruling by Judicial Fiat; By Zack Pruitt; Acton InstitutePower Blog; 6/26/15)

The Zack Pruitt quote above was inspired by five Justices forcing same-sex marriage upon the all the States of the Union by fabricating meanings from words in the Constitution that plain and simply DO NOT match the judicial logic of the SCOTUS majority; viz. Obergefell v. Hodges.

It is this Judicial Fiat by five Justices that another Judge in a lower court jailed Kim Davis for her Christian refusal to issue Marriage Licenses to homosexuals.

A Heaven or Hell Decision

By Justin O. Smith

Sent: 9/10/2015 12:12 PM

“To issue a marriage license which conflicts with God’s definition of marriage, with my name affixed to the certificate, would violate my conscience. It is not a light issue for me. It is a Heaven or Hell decision.” – Kim Davis

America was founded on religious freedom and the right to sustain and protect one’s beliefs and conscience, and yet, the American people were recently forced to bear witness to one of the most ignominious and unconscionable acts perpetrated by the third branch of government, the judiciary, in over 150 years, as a U.S. citizen was jailed for staying true to her own Christian belief and her conscience.

With the Ten Commandments still carved in stone above the entrance to the U.S. Supreme Court, Kim Davis, a Christian Democrat and Rowan County Clerk (Kentucky), was jailed by U.S. District Judge David Bunning on September 3, 2015 for contempt of court. He erroneously asserted that Mrs. Davis “arguably violated the First Amendment by openly adopting a policy that promotes her own religious convictions at the expense of others,” because she steadfastly has refused to issue marriage licenses to homosexuals.

Keeping in mind that religious liberty is protected by the First Amendment; that marriage is defined in the Kentucky Constitution as being between “one man and one woman”; and that over 75% of voters in Kentucky passed the Kentucky Religious Freedom restoration Act (2013), which provides for accommodations to be made for just such religious objections as Kim Davis holds, one must ask the following question: Aren’t the courts “adopting” their “policy” and agenda when they magically create “law” based on mythical “rights” that cannot be found and are not presented anywhere within the U.S. Constitution?

Instead of deciding an issue with any new law through the actual text of the U.S. Constitution and through logical and full consideration of all available historical evidence, the Supreme Court, the 6th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals and judge Bunning have perpetuated the same bad law and judicial activism that started with the abuse of the Constitution by Justice Hugo Black in Everson v Board of education (1947) and has not yet ended with Obergefell v Hodges (2015). Through their hubris and their ignorance or contempt of the U.S. Constitution, they have advanced a fallacious understanding of the Constitution and the First Amendment, which has resulted in judicial tyranny.

Before Everson, the states were not prohibited under the First Amendment from establishing religion, and nowhere in the debate on freedom of religion in the first Congress is there any mention of “separation of church and state.” Our Founders own writings clearly show that they never intended for public officials to check their convictions and beliefs at the door to their offices. They would have been shocked by the Court’s excessively broad interpretation of the First Amendment, given the language the Founders crafted with the belief it would protect open expression of religious beliefs in America. The Founders most certainly would have rebelled against the idea of an absolute “separation of church and state” and the use of the First and Fourteenth Amendments to eradicate all Judeo-Christian references to God from the public square, because these ideas are incompatible with the Original Intent and unalienable rights granted to each of us by our Creator, thus making them erroneous and historically unsupportable.

On New Year’s Day 1802, Thomas Jefferson wrote to the Danbury Baptists to assuage their fear that the federal government might one day attempt to condition religious freedom as a right granted by the state. Jefferson, an anti-Federalist, clearly stated his intention to keep government out of religious affairs rather than empower it to remove religion from the public arena: “Adhering to this expression of the supreme will of the nation in the behalf of the rights of conscience, I shall see with sincere satisfaction the progress of those sentiments which tend to restore to man all his natural rights, convinced he has no natural rights in opposition to his social duties.”

If anyone’s First Amendment rights have been violated, they were Kim Davis’s rights, as she was jailed illegally and denied habeas corpus, in order to coerce her to issue marriage licenses to homosexuals. This violated her right to freedom of religious conscience.

Kim Davis asked the perfect question before she was jailed in Carter County detention Center: “Under what law am I authorized to issue homosexual couples a marriage license?”

Only Congress can make law according to the U.S. Constitution, so exactly what “law” did the Supreme Court make with its ruling on Obergefell v Hodges? No law has been written and passed that allows same-sex couples to marry, although the Supreme Court and five black-robed tyrants are claiming this is “the law” after Justice Kennedy “found” this imaginary “right” to homosexual marriage in the 14th Amendment, which dealt with states’ rights, citizenship for freed slaves and ending the Civil war.

During her incarceration, Kim Davis’s lawyer, Mat Staver, Liberty Counsel founder, worked towards her release, since the Kentucky Religious Freedom Restoration Act already provided for accommodations that should have been immediately sought in order to save her from Bunning’s abusive order. Massive crowds of supporters arrived in Grayson, KY to protest her confinement, and presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Ted Cruz came to her aid, and they all stood by her side on the day of her release.

Bunning released Mrs. Davis, because her deputy clerks were signing marriage licenses with “Rowan County,” thus satisfying “the law”; however, Mat Staver’s comments before the crowd seemed to suggest that this fight may not be over until these “marriage” licenses for homosexuals are issued through a different office and someone else’s authority, which the Governor could handle by executive order. Both Staver and Davis reiterated her intent to do her job without violating her Christian beliefs and conscience.

On a larger front, this battle over the definition of “marriage” and against homosexual marriages is far from over, all across the nation. Millions of other Americans, such as Nick Williams – a probate judge in Washington County, Alabama and Molly Criner – a clerk in Irion County, Texas, are declaring that “natural marriage cannot be redefined by government,” and currently, numerous counties across America are following the example set by Kim Davis, including eleven counties from Alabama alone.

Judge Williams told the New York Times: “When you’re elected you don’t check your beliefs at the door. If you’re a true believer, you can’t separate that from who you are.” Judge Williams was evidently well versed, by someone in his youth, on the Founding Fathers’ beliefs.

Even though Kim Davis was released on September 8th, she never should have been arrested it the first place. She broke no Kentucky law. She broke no federal law in her efforts to uphold her Christian convictions. And never again, for all times hereafter, should any American be jailed simply for standing by their religious conscience.

With traditional Christian and Jewish faith and their civilizing principles under increasing attack by black-robed tyrants, who have shown a willingness now to jail people of deeply held religious beliefs, all God-loving Americans must stand in defense of religious liberty and the right to one’s freedom of conscience in the manner envisioned by our Founders, otherwise all Americans will suffer terrible consequences. we must refuse to obey unjust and unConstitutional “laws”, that seek to silence and punish religious speech and diminish the God-ordained institution of marriage and the family to a distant memory, just as prescribed by St. Augustine, rather than allow our society to be reduced to the shambles of a secular and humanist cesspool of sick, demented, twisted criminal and immoral perversion ___ Hell on Earth.

Islam, Elsa and I

Traditional Biblical Faith and Non-Traditional Thinking

John R. Houk

© September 7, 2015

I had cross posted an email from Elsa Schieder by some thoughts her email inspired. The title of that post is “My Thoughts on Same-Sex Marriage & Nobel for Pastor Mulinde”. The subject title of Elsa’s email was “Honor Umar Mulinde – we stand with this man”. If you don’t know, are uniformed or are multiculturally brainwashed here are some quotes on Islam from experts and Muslims alike – HERE and HERE.

The reason I added some personal thoughts on same-sex marriage is because after promoting Pastor Umar Mulinde for a nomination for a Nobel Peace Prize for being a Christian Pastor persecuted for his faith with a Muslim acid bath Elsa addressed some flak on her position on same-sex marriage. Evidently she lost a huge amount of subscribers who looked forward to her Counterjihad newsletters.

Here is an excerpt of the email addressing the cancelling subscribers:

And now I will come back to the response to my piece saying that I don’t see how permitting gay marriage threatens marriage. A few people wrote comments like, brilliant! They were in the minority. I also had a couple of thoughtful responses against gay marriage. Again, these were in the minority. I’ve never had so many people cancel – including people who have been getting the updates for 3 years, since I started the initial interview series. Several cancelled with comments like: “God says homosexuality is a sin. Just what don’t you understand?”

I could have answered that we don’t all believe in the same god. Quite a few of us don’t believe in any cosmic force.

But that would have been a response to the words, not to the emotion.

What I saw most was that my not being against gay marriage touched what I might call a hot button, often a hot anger button. Game over. Get out now. No more updates ever. (Found in post “My Thoughts on Same-Sex Marriage & Nobel for Pastor Mulinde”)

I have to admit I did not read Elsa’s supportive email for same-sex marriage. Nonetheless, if I had read it I would have gone through that inner search that weighs what I am acutely aware about Islam as anti-Western and anti-Christian (and numerous anti-this or that which should alarm the full scale of the political spectrum) in its revered writings measured against the Biblical principles that homosexuality is a sinful abomination. Here are a couple of blog posts that will give some insight into my stand on the Bible pertaining to homosexuality:

o Homosexual Sin and the Christian Approach

o Introductory portion to “This is Why we Call the Gay Lobby Fascist!

I responded to Elsa with surprise that subscribers left a Counterjihad subscription because of a stand that Conservative Americans (including myself) would disagree. I still believe in her role as a Counterjihad writer regardless of disagreeing with her stand on same-sex marriage. Here is an excerpt from what I wrote about same-sex marriage:

In the matter of same-sex marriage: For me there is no way around the fact that marriage is a religious oath of fidelity. As far as the Bible informs then, same-sex marriage should not be performed or accepted by Christians. However, a civil union as in a defined and binding contract is Constitutional according to even [Constitutional] Original Intent and a matter of choosing Life in Christ or death in the Last Judgment with Satan and his deceived minions. Christians should never give up on showing a person lost in sin the Light of Christ and the path to eternal redemption. (I added “Constitutional” for clarity – John R. Houk; My Thoughts on Same-Sex Marriage & Nobel for Pastor Mulinde)

I am fairly certain that some fellow believers will find the “civil union” concept as something still unacceptable. Nevertheless we do live in a nation of laws. The Constitution and the Bill of Rights are central to American culture. It is our Constitution that allows some sort of agreeing harmony among Leftists, Conservatives, religious adherents, Secular Humanists and atheists pertaining to the respect for law and order. Constitutional interpretation is becoming a wider gap in the American political spectrum. I have come to the conclusion that Multiculturalism and politically correct Left Wing thinking has eroded the American harmony into more and more conflict.

Elsa’s email response to my thoughts on same-sex marriage relate to the point that not all people have my perspective on the supremacy of a monotheist God from the Judeo-Christian Holy Bible. She wrote as follows:

Hello John,

Thank you for writing. I don’t see anyone as insignificant.

I have also noted your many efforts on google plus. Not insignificant.

Much more, I know we are not insignificant as ourselves, who we are.

Yes, we disagree on gay marriage – however, like you I want to do this respectfully.

On my side, as you must know, my spirituality, and also my beliefs about the more-than-5-sense-world, are different from yours. So what for you is sin and death, for me is fine – freedom unless you are hurting someone (hitting, insulting, etc.).

The most amazing thing for me: this experience with traditional Christians is something new for me – except for some encounters with Jehovah’s Witnesses as a mid-teen. Yours is an alien inner landscape for me.

My sense is we come to counter-jihad from different angles – for me Islam is against freedom, the right to flourish.

And now I want to tell you about a strength of the traditional Christians I have noticed (and you most likely know).

I’ve had to hold out against political correctness on my own – through thinking. Most people around me have gone the brain-wrecked route of political correctness.

Traditional Christians have more tools – starting with being encouraged to stand strongly for the truths they believe in, not caving in if someone else is offended.

And yet, like the non-religious politically correct people, so many of them have caved in as well.

Anyway, I find it vital that we can stand for our beliefs – and also learn – and discuss.

From my “experience” (meaning, one can’t verify as one can verify the experience of a sunset) of the “cosmic” (or however one might designate it), I don’t see that my view on gay marriage will ever coincide with yours.

By the way, re-marriage – I think you read my viewpoint: the different religions should have the option to marry (or not marry) in accordance with their beliefs, except when this violates the law (like marrying a child). I know, for instance, that the different branches of the Lutheran church have very different understandings of the biblical texts – re: women, gays, etc. (I am not going to mix into this argument – not mine.)

A big thing, for me: respecting each other, even when there is disagreement.

Again, thank you for writing,

All the best,


On 2015-09-01, at 2:18 PM

When I asked for permission to use Elsa’s permission to post her email, she gave permission and responded thus including a quote from my intro to her promotion of Pastor Umar Mulinde for the Nobel Peace Prize (“My Thoughts on Same-Sex Marriage & Nobel for Pastor Mulinde”):

I agree:

“(E)ven in disagreement there is still ground for agreement. Christians (of all Denominations), atheists, Secularists and other religions not Islamic should unite and agree that Islam is a threat to all of our lines of thought and beliefs.”

All the best to all of us on the side of life, love, freedom,


There is a time when political and social disagreements need to be set aside in Western Culture. The theopolitical tenets of the revered writings of Islam inspiring Sunni and Shia aspirations for a global Caliphate at the expense of the Liberties and Freedoms that have come to pass in West should/MUST unite a common goal to stop the un-Western concepts of Islam from finding any kind of ascendance. Since I am an American this unity must especially coalesce insuring the efficacy of the United State Constitution.

Get on Board with Anti-Iran Nuke Deal Rally in DC

© September 3, 2015


There is a Stop Obama’s Iran Nuke Deal rally scheduled for September 9 in Washington DC. The two main speakers will be Donald Trump and Senator Ted Cruz. According to the movements advertising photo-op Glen Beck and Mark Levin will be there as well. Here’s the quote:

Stop Iran Rally DC is a movement led by volunteers who believe America will be worse off living in a world where the Iranian regime has nuclear weapons capabilities to menace other nations and unfettered access to the world economy to earn more money to pay more terrorists.

The Iranian regime is the main financial sponsor of Lebanon’s Hezbollah and Gaza’s Hamas and is responsible for the chaos in Yemen. The Syrian regime, which used chemical weapons against its own people, is also funded by Iran.

The world agreed to sanction this dangerous regime because it refuse to play by our rules. Nothing has changed since 1979 when it came to power.

As Americans, we have read this deal and don’t like what our side has brought back from their bargaining.

If IAEA inspectors suspect wrongdoing, why must we wait up to 24 days to inspect? If (or, rather, when) Iran breaks its commitments, after two months of talking about it, the sanctions could be re-applied — but only for new business deals. In other words, after companies from around the world rush to sign deals with Iran in the coming months, there is no “snap back” for those deals. In other words, the threat of more sanctions is hollow.

If you agree that America deserves a better deal, please come to Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, September 9, to make our elected leaders hear your voice. (Stop Iran Rally, Washington, D.C.! Let’s March on the White House! September 9; By Editor; Stop Iran Rally; 9/3/15)

The organization Never Again is Now alerted me to this email via email. The authors of the email are the founders of the organization – Stanley Zir and Buddy Macy. Anytime one sees the words “Never Again” it is a reference to the Holocaust that killed nearly 6 MILLION Jews between 1939 and 1945. Out of the ravages of the Holocaust and WWII Israel was born in 1948 – not peacefully. Surrounding Arab nations sent in armies to destroy the nascent Israel and drive the Jews into the Mediterranean Sea. These Arabs were not talking about a leisurely swim, rather they were talk about another mass killing of Jews. One of the great miracles of the 20th century is that a group Jewish underground paramilitary groups managed their differences to unite and still outnumbered managed to hold off invading Arab armies to secure the Jewish State of Israel. There was not another Jewish Holocaust. Arab nations neighboring Israel fought a total of FOUR wars between 1948 and 1974 attempting another Jewish Holocaust.

If you look at map. Israel is a speck on a Middle Eastern map. You can’t tell me there wasn’t any Divine intervention in that Israel won every single war including liberating all of Jerusalem from the land thieves of Jordan in 1967 who destroyed anything of Jewish heritage between then East Jerusalem and what the rest of the world calls the West Bank and what Jews who understand their heritage call Judea and Samaria in 1948-49. Thousands of years of the Jewish Quarter in Jerusalem was destroyed by 1949 by Jordanian occupation.

TODAY! Iran still makes the threat of a Jewish holocaust against Israel and in their hubris also threaten the destruction of the USA and Americans. President Barack Hussein Obama has given Iran a road map to arm with nuclear WMDs with his so-called historic deal with the crazed Twelver-Shia Islamic nation.


This Zir and Macy email encourages ALL the Republican Candidates for POTUS (to date) to unite at this Washington DC rally against the Obama-Kerry Deal that essentially sells Western culture to an eventual nuclear with Iran. Call, write or email your Senator and Congressman to make sure they vote to OVERRIDE any Obama veto that secures his Executive Order (i.e. not a Treaty ratified by the Senate) enabling a nuclear armed Iran.

On two days’ notice, Mr. Trump was able to gather 30 thousand people in a football stadium in Alabama.

All of the Republican Presidential candidates must converge on our nation’s Capital on September 9, 2015 and join with frontrunner Donald Trump and Senator Ted Cruz to stop Obama’s veto. And, all Tea Party members, American Patriots and pro-Zionists must gather there in numbers unlike anything witnessed since Martin Luther King’s historic march on Washington, DC!

Op-Ed: National Emergency for America

By Stanley Zir

Israel National News – Arutz Sheva 7

If this deal goes forward, America relinquishes her crown as the leader of the free world. Clear talk of the threat facing America and the world.

The Constitution is the guideline I will never abandon.” – George Washington

The United States of America was born out of a resolve to protect the freedoms of the individual from the tyranny of the state. Its Constitution was written to safeguard those freedoms at all costs – ad infinitum. America’s Founding Fathers were excellent physicians who could fully detect the disease of tyranny in all its forms. They left the American people the Constitution as a preventive vaccine to eliminate this cancer.

Therefore, upholding the Constitution and its firm stance against tyranny or any government or enterprise, foreign or domestic that seeks to destroy the United States, its values, democracy, or “western ways” is a non-debatable issue.

There are no parties here, no sides, and no disparities to discuss. If you are an American, as I am, the Constitution is the law of your land and it is the premier reference guide that protects Americans from those who seek to tamper with our freedoms.

Either we stand with the Constitution’s sacred covenant of freedom, the basis upon which this republic rests, or our very foundation faces collapse.

Stopping the Iranian Nuclear Threat and removing the ultimate mass destructive weapon known to man from getting into the hands of a heinous, tyrannical nation, that openly threatens to destroy America, is then neither a Democratic nor a Republican issue; rather it’s a Constitutional mandate.

Our government must rule and abide by our Constitution whose stance against tyranny is its rule law. Congress must commit to stopping President Obama, who is acting as if he is Iran’s nuclear terrorist-enabling acolyte.

The Republican Debate

Let’s face it; the Republican debate was a side- show extravaganza. A lot of entertainment was provided with a juggling of theories and elixirs for the most common social and economic ailments. The one obvious omittance was a serious discussion about Iranian’s nuclear threat. Not one candidate made stopping President Obama’s veto a top priority.

With less than 20 days left to defeat Obama’s veto, it is obvious these candidates have already abandoned their pledge (if elected) to uphold the Constitution’s stance against tyranny. Instead they are treading lightly in shark-infested waters while Obama is waving the white flag of surrender to Iran.

Even though the election is still 15 months away, at which point the Iranian deal and its veto will be a moot point, these candidates are not displaying the sense of urgency necessary. No one is breaking from the pack as the conscientious leader and saying, “Let’s put our collective heads together and get this business done first for the good of the country and the world.” The first candidate to do that has my vote.

The Republican Party has never made stopping Iran their top priority, before or after the deal was made. Overriding President Obama’s veto might be their last chance to save our country. What will our future be if Iran gets access to the bomb a year before the elections in 2016?

Mr. Trump, as the front runner who is proposing to make America great again, you must realize that honoring a deal that cedes victory to Iran and Islamic fascism over our Constitution means we have relinquished what makes us great and exceptional among nations. It is only through the commitment against tyranny and enforcement of our Constitution that our country thrives with capitalism and free markets; not the other way around. As one of the most successful businessmen in our country, you know the importance of a good business plan. The Constitution is the preeminent business plan for a free nation.

The business of America is to establish, support, and defend the contents of its Constitution, at all costs. Obama’s deal with Iran is in direct conflict with our Constitution in that we are not only negotiating with a tyranny that consistently promotes its hatred of our freedoms, but we are aiding and abetting that tyranny in its quest to obtain a nuclear bomb.

If this deal goes forward, America relinquishes her crown as the leader of the free world. Can she ever be trusted again to keep the flame of liberty lit from those who are bent on extinguishing it?

Mr. Trump, if we have to wait 15 months to put your plan in action, how do you propose to make America great again if you don’t lead the charge to stop Obama’s veto?

For a dozen years, I have been writing the same screed over and over. “It’s Iran, you blind imbeciles!” It’s not Obamacare! It’s not Isis! It’s not the Muslim Brotherhood, Russia, or China! It’s not the ceiling debt or Hillary. Even the illegal immigration issue must take a back seat to the Iranian threat.

There will be time later to build Trump’s wall and seal the border, but if we don’t eliminate Iran’s ability to obtain nuclear weapons, we won’t have to worry about a wall, or immigrants, or anchor babies. The politicians are being diverted while Iran’s end game is to run out the clock. Congress wants to put out campfires as the whole forest is burning down around us.

President Obama confirmed Iran is, at most, six months away from enriching enough nuclear fuel for an atomic bomb and that walking away from the deal would render any sanctions useless. Overlooked is the fact that there is no repeal process unlike Obamacare, once Iran holds nuclear weapons.

Meanwhile Russia and China will have sufficiently armed Iran to protect their own oil interests and the European Union will have secured lucrative financial deals with Iran to guard its vital interests.

So, as all the other self-satisfying nations are bartering their economic and political securities with tyrannical madmen, America must remain the only sensible “voice of reason” as the leader of the free world; the court of last resort

Overriding Obama’s veto, however, is only half the story. Without coupling the veto with the destruction of Iran’s nuclear capabilities, it is only a piece of paper. Additionally crippling sanctions at that point would be useless.

What other assurance is there that the world is not threatened by an indiscriminate nuclear attack? If Iran crosses the nuclear threshold there will be no safe haven left in the free world. We will find ourselves at the mercy of Iranian madmen armed with nuclear devices.

For the sake of our Union, all Republican Party candidates must temporarily put their differences aside and unite to stop Obama’s veto, then call for the destruction of Iran’s nuclear capacity.

The successful candidate for the next position of Commander and Chief must be able to awaken the American people to the fact that the greatest threat to our nation, our economy and the future of the world is the Iranian Nuclear terrorist threat. Stopping Obama’s veto now must be their top priority.

“This summer is a call to action. If you’re like me and you’re not really ready, continue to prepare, because mark my words, never again is right now.” -Glenn Beck

This summer Mercury One helped launch the start of a new movement, Never Again Is Now. Asking “What will unite us?” Glenn Beck revealed his calling to act against the genocides in the Middle East and mobilize our nation towards the efforts to provide aid for the refugees, support for the suppressed, and to show the world that Americans will not stand idle to the terror.


The brutality and injustice happening in the Middle East is not something that is hidden from the world. It is posted daily to social media and strung across news headlines, yet as a country, we have averted our eyes, choosing to do nothing. But it is now that we are called to be brave, to face the atrocities and say NEVER AGAIN.



We want to encourage you to take action. These victims are crying out to God and looking to America for compassion. Now is the time we step out of our comfort zones and READ THE REST
