U.S.-born Taliban fighter
wins prison prayer lawsuit

Associated Press, by Charles Wilson

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/11/2013 9:03:52 PM

INDIANAPOLIS — An American convicted of fighting alongside the Taliban must be allowed to pray daily in a group with other Muslim inmates at his high-security prison in Indiana, a federal judge ruled Friday. Barring John Walker Lindh and his fellow Muslims from engaging in daily group ritual prayer violates a 1993 law that bans the government from curtailing religious speech without showing a compelling interest, U.S. District Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson ruled. The judge blocked the prison from enforcing its ban on daily group prayer, but she noted that her ruling does not prohibit the prison

Comments:
The world has gone mad! Magnus-Stinson was appointed by 0bama. What a horrific precedent this now sets. Look for this to spread across the country. Sickening.

Here´s a newsflash for Judgie-poo Jane, the rest of the judiciary, and the entire Obama administration: Lindh isn´t a criminal.

His acts fall outside the realm of judicially-adjudicable crime.

Yes, #2. He is a despicable, traitorous POS who should have been executed for his treason.

But prison officials said the same restrictions applied to all inmates, and that meeting Lindh’s demands would be dangerous, unaffordable and unfair. Government witnesses testified that Muslims, who make up the majority of inmates in the unit, have operated like a gang under the guise of religious activity.

During trial, the ACLU noted that games and some other group activities were not restricted.


If the prison was more restrictive in other ways, more consistent (no games, etc.), there wouldn´t be a problem.

And others are right. He is guilty of war crimes. Should have been executed by now.

The great untold secret is the number of prisoners being indoctrinated into the Muslim faith while in prison. The most violent and dangerous among us are being recruited/indoctrinated into this "Religion of Peace."

But at least their civil rights aren´t being violated. The hell with our civil rights!

There was no mention that he was captured during the same prison riot in which CIA officer and former United States Marine Capt. "Mike Spann" was killed. I´m thinking "Guilt by Associaton", but the US Gov´t didn´t see any correlation there. "Different Strokes for Different Folks".

The Coming Obamacare Shock
for 170 Million Americans
Financial Times, by Edward Morrissey    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/3/2014 11:51:56 AM     Post Reply
Barack Obama declared victory this week as the deadline to avoid the penalty for the individual mandate to carry health insurance passed on Monday. “The Affordable Care Act is here to stay,” the President insisted as he announced that 7.1 million people had enrolled in private insurance through Obamacare. “The debate over repealing this law is over.” Consider that presidential wish casting in a midterm cycle in which Democrats will have to constantly defend their support for the unpopular law. As Jimmy Fallon pointed out later the same evening, the numbers were neither impressive nor reliable. “It’s amazing what you

Miley Cyrus is few people´s idea of a role model, what with her overtly sexual stage show, infatuation with marijuana and willingness to take off her clothes when the mood--and camera--strikes. One reality show star thinks the erstwhile Hannah Montana sets a good example for today´s young women all the same. Kendra Wilkinson, who parlayed her romance with Playboy founder Hugh Hefner into a reality show career, told E! News that more young women should take a page out of Cyrus´s playbook.

The Environmental Protection Agency is under fire for exposing children to pollution as part of an experiment at the University of Southern California. This information is coming to light from the website junkscience.com after an investigation from the EPA´s Office of the Inspector General stated in a recent report that the EPA’s pollution experiments on older people, done at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, were more harmful to the subjects than what the EPA presented. The IG also said that while the experiment´s subjects did consent to exposure, the “risks were not always consistently represented.” “Further, the EPA did not

Two more key Democrats are questioning the Obama administration´s decision to cede some of America´s control over the Internet. Sen. Edward Markey (D-MA) told Breitbart News there should be a “high burden” for making such a change and that he´s reviewing the decision, while Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) said he´s inclined against the change. “I think it’s a high burden to overcome to cede authority, so I’m looking forward to the discussion about what this world would look like and again I’ll be open minded but I think the old system has a lot to say for itself,” Markey, who is a

Speaking at the University of Michigan University in Ann Arbor Wednesday, President Obama told students that Republicans don´t like them and don´t want to help them. Students greeted his remarks with applause and cheers. "I´m determined to do my part to lift wages, improve take-home pay any way I can," the president said in making his pitch for a higher minimum wage. "Here´s the problem," he continued. "You´ve got some Republicans saying we shouldn´t raise the minimum wage because -- (chuckles) -- they said this: Because, well, it just helps young people. Now, first of all, I think it´s pretty

Both CBS´s Bob Schieffer and NBC´s Brian Williams cried foul on Wednesday evening at the Supreme Court striking down the cap on overall political donations, showing sympathy for supporters of the law. Schieffer lamented that "More and more, the very rich are taking control of our politics" and that "this ruling is just one more sign that we no longer have any campaign laws that really matter." Brian Williams actually quoted liberal Justice Stephen Breyer and asked what opponents of the decision could do. [Video below the break.

Las Vegas (CBS LAS VEGAS) – Just days after the deadline to enroll for insurance coverage through Nevada Health Link, the first class-action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of residents who say they signed up and paid their premiums – but were never given coverage. Law firm Callister & Associates filed the lawsuit on behalf of Larry Basich, who signed up for state health insurance and paid premiums as far back as November, but then was not covered following a Jan. 3 triple bypass procedure that saw his $400,000 in medical expenses passed between the wrong insurance companies, the

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has escalated his war of words against the billionaire Koch brothers by publishing an anti-Koch hit piece on his Senate.gov page, despite official rules prohibiting the use of U.S. senators’ .gov websites for political purposes. The Senate.gov web page belonging to the Nevada Democrat currently features a list a list of “facts” about the Koch brothers, their limited government views and financial support for candidates that support these views. “The Kochs want to abolish Social Security,” reads the page. “The Kochs spent $400 million on misleading attack ads in the last election cycle.” The post

The Dartmouth students known as “Concerned Asian, Black, Latin@, Native, Undocumented, Queer, and Differently-Abled students” have followed through on their threat to take “physical action” if the College’s administrators don’t reply to their demands. Their physical action consists of occupying the office of Phil Hanlon, Dartmouth’s president. The demands of these activists are so absurd that when I first reported on them some very intelligent people told me that this was a hoax. Here are some of the demands: Incorporate into each department at least one queer studies class. Commit multi-millions of dollars to increase faculty and staff of color

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied.

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue.

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke.
