  1. E-mails have been going around about Gorsuch and Sharia in schools.
    This is from the Seattle Times:

    WASHINGTON — Newly sworn-in Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch didn’t cast the deciding vote in a case on Islam in public schools, despite the claims of several widely shared stories. The high court has issued no such opinion in the days since Gorsuch has joined its bench.

    The stories shared by several right-leaning viral content sites, including Conservative World Daily and We Conservative, say the nine justices met and voted 5-4 in favor of allowing schools to only teach the history of Islamic terrorism. It also says Gorsuch advocated that “standard Judeo-Christianity” should be the only religion taught.

    The court’s website shows no such opinion being released since Gorsuch joined the court.

    Gorsuch was sworn in as a justice on April 10.

    There is no place for Sharia in American schools.
    Most people don’t understand, Sharia is the Islamic law. The religious law is the law of the land.
    Like OT Judaism. God’s law was the law.

  2. I’m sorry. I didn’t block off somehow, what was from the Times and my comment. But I’m sure you can tell, It started with : “”There’s no place for Sharia”


  3. My how things have changed.


  4. Despite Democrats and the media wishing otherwise…..


    “In Devastating Blow to Democrat Talking Point, Tax Refunds Are Up This Year

    When math doesn’t square with your talking points”

    “Sorry, Democrats, but data recently released from the IRS indicates tax refunds haven’t dwindled following Trump’s tax reform, they’re actually up by a whole 1.3% (on average).

    Since its passage, Democrats have demonized the tax reform legislation, first claiming the increase in take-home pay was minimal, then suggesting companies would just keep the extra for themselves, greedy corporations and all. When large companies passed the saving to their employees, Democrats went back to the, well it’s just a one-time small gift, mantra.

    As tax season bloomed, Democrats then claimed (and the press marched behind in lock-step) tax refunds had shrunk this year. Never mind that if you’re getting a refund, it’s because you overpaid your taxes, not because a benevolent government is giving you back more of your money they’ve been withholding interest-free. But I digress.”


  5. She can’t help it, she’s just being what she is. An anti-Semitic bigot.



  6. Tell ’em Ben.



  7. Since his deputy secretary is covered under DACA, there’s no need to call ICE. But I’m sure they will come for her and then the communists and trade unionists that come for her. And as Roger Stone found out, ICE and militarization of police will come for old white guys like me.


  8. The two Muslim ladies arent antisemitic they are against Israel influence on American foreign policy. Given Israel’s pro Saudi policies and active destabilization of Syria/Iraq, the ladies are more pro American than pro Isreali Republicans. The latter do have divided loyalties. Its not in American or Western interests to support Israel’s middle east policies.


  9. Have I told you that I’ve changed my mind about running for President?
    I have decided that I can control the climate better than they can.
    I will make it snow on the ski slopes, but not on the highways.
    I will make it rain on the golf course every Saturday evening, but that’s all.
    Every hurricanes will pass far to the east of us.

    I know you don’t believe me. But my plan makes better sense than theirs.

  10. HRW,

    The top Dem on the Foreign Affairs Committee disagrees with you.


    “Top Democrat On Foreign Affairs Committee Condemns Ilhan Omar’s Latest Anti-Semitic Remarks”

    “It’s getting harder and harder for Democrats to ignore or defend Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) blatant anti-Semitism.

    On Friday, Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY), who is Jewish and the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, released a statement condemning Omar’s recent comments suggesting those that defend Israel have an “allegiance to a foreign country.” Engel requested Omar apologize for her “vile” remarks.

    I welcome debate in Congress based on the merits of policy, but it’s unacceptable and deeply offensive to call into question the loyalty of fellow American citizens because of their political views, including support for the U.S.-Israel relationship. We all take the same oath. Worse, Representative Omar’s comments leveled that charge by invoking a vile anti-Semitic slur. This episode is especially disappointing following so closely on another instance of Ms. Omar seeming to invoke an anti-Semitic stereotype. Her comments were outrageous and deeply hurtful, and I ask that she retract them, apologize, and commit to making her case on policy issues without resorting to attacks that have no place in the Foreign Affairs Committee or the House of Representatives.”


  11. The so called moderate Democrats can say what they want; she’s right.

    Its currently not in America’s interest to support Israel. Israel and Saudi Arabia support Sunni and Wahhabi extremists in Syria and Yemen. Obviously this campaign to destabilize Syria, Iraq and Yemen is not in American interest. The Europeans are correct. Iran unlike North Korean has not broken a treaty and needs to be supported as a counterbalance to Saudi suppprted extremism. I understand Israel middle east policy but I don’t know why anyone in the western alliance would support it. And anyone who supports it, one must question either their loyalty or intelligence.


  12. Prostitution should be legalized, regulated and taxed. As Chas alludes to there are less honorable professions that are legal.
