GOP donor: Gays must be
protected from Islamic
shariah law in U.S.

Washington Times, by Seth McLaughlin

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/25/2013 12:20:17 PM

An influential GOP donor said Friday that Republicans should do more to make sure that gay men and lesbian women do not fall victim to the sort of Shariah law practiced by hard-line Islamists. Foster Friess, the the multimillionaire who helped keep Rick Santorum´s presidential dreams afloat in the GOP primary last year, told reporters at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor that he wants to make sure that gay people are not killed in foreign nations because of their sexual preference. Asked whether the Republican Party should embrace gay marriage, the 72-year-old investment manager said,

Comments:
Uhh, what about everyone else?? Why is it that Republicans always manage to step in it. It´s really very tiresome.

Too late.
Christopher Stevens (according to Hillary) was the face of the State Dept´s new guidelines about hiring homosexuals for security work at embassies in the Middle East.
He even went to Abu Dabi to tout these new standards to ALL the Muslims in the Arab world.
Shortly thereafter he is dead.
(Yes, he was a homosexual himself, but that hardly seems important compared with shoving this PC policy down all the throats of Muslims in their own homelands.)

This is the wrong approach, completely. The left wants sharia and thinks it is so great. Let them suffer the consequences. If the muzzies ever got their way in America, they would start on high profile deviates and blasphemers, which would include most of the movie, tv, music, and internet porn industries.

How about we work to protect ALL people from Sharia Law??? Not just people in the LGBT community, but also women,children, Christians, Jews, and basically anyone with a pulse and breath in their lungs.

How about THAT???

You are also going to have to protect those vaunted "reproductive rights" from sharia law. According the imams and mullahs, women have the right to submit to men selected for them, get pregnant, have the baby, and shut the heck up. After all women are mere beasts with only half a soul.

This is the right way to approach the issue. Conservative Americans have ALWAYS stood up for the downtrodden.
IMHO, the way to approach the issue is:
Marriage is a sacrement of the Church. I do believe that you deserve the same rights as I as a married man, and as long as you are willing to accept the SAME RIGHTS via Civil Union-and anyone who ever had a Mayor or Judge perform the ceremony is considered married, they did not FORCE the Church to acknowledge their Union- we should demand the same rights be granted them. What two people do in the privacy of their homes is NOT my business.
Do I support gay ssex? No. DO I recognize their existence and accept that they have rights? Yes.
I really object to the forcing of Churches to accept without judgement and welcome with open arms.
Read this guys comments. They are tough to disagree with.

Being not muslim is against Shariah law. Shariah is not a U.S. law, by the way. The influential donor, whose name I suppose might be mentioned somewhere, might acknowledge facts. No U.S. legislature has passed any such law, nor has any such legislation been introduced, unless done so by Keith Ellison, that scholar of unconstitutionality. I would support gun control, knife control, and bomb control for islamists. Perhaps Biden or Dianne Feinstein will beoome outraged and propose a law.

Acting like the White House press office, Tuesday´s CBS This Morning devoted a 3-minute report to President Obama´s habit of binge watching his favorite TV shows, with correspondent Bill Plante gushing: "He may be the leader of the free world, but when it comes to unwinding, President Obama – well, he´s a lot like us....The President tunes in to tune out. And when he needs his television, step aside."

Reid: Obama should look

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said he hopes President Obama will review possible administrative actions to halt the deportations of illegal immigrants now that reform legislation has stalled in Congress. “I would hope that administratively, the president will do what he can to take a look at deportations, but he is being burdened by the law as it exists and we need to change it,” Reid told the Las Vegas Review Journal. In 2012, Obama announced that the administration would halt the deportation of undocumented young adults who met certain criteria through prosecutorial prioritization. Immigration activists and some Democrats have suggested

Food Prices Skyrocketing Since
2011 While Wages Stagnant
Breitbart´s Big Government, by William Bigelow    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/18/2014 11:25:41 AM     Post Reply
CBS News reports that the combination of food prices being inflated and the stagnation of wages is threatening the middle class. The report noted that staples such as chicken, ground beef, and bacon have skyrocketed in price since 2011: the price of chicken is 18.4% more than it was; ground beef is up 16.8%; and bacon saw a huge increase of 22.8% in price. These price hikes came despite the federal government’s sunny assertion that prices in general have only increased 6.4% in that period. Meanwhile, median income has only risen 1% each year, while the cost of college tuition has climbed

The Girl Scouts of the USA has sent threatening letters to at least two small pro-life groups that have been critical of Girl Scout collaborations with Planned Parenthood and other abortion advocacy groups. Since the beginning of the Girl Scout cookie boycott, exclusively announced at Breitbart News late last month, LifeNews has extensively reported on the connection between Planned Parenthood and the Girl Scouts. LifeNews editor Steve Ertelt announced Monday that he had received a letter threatening legal action. In it, Girl Scout executive Brian Crawford complained about “articles that outline alleged ties to Planned Parenthood” and that “GSUSA has

As homeowners around the nation protest skyrocketing premiums for federal flood insurance, the Federal Emergency Management Agency has quietly moved the lines on its flood maps to benefit hundreds of oceanfront condo buildings and million-dollar homes, according to an analysis of federal records by NBC News. The changes shift the financial burden for the next destructive hurricane, tsunami or tropical storm onto the neighbors of these wealthy beach-dwellers — and ultimately onto all American taxpayers. In more than 500 instances from the Gulf of Alaska to Bar Harbor, Maine, FEMA has remapped waterfront properties from the highest-risk flood zone, saving

It´s about time. That somebody called out the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, that is. As the Washington Examiner´s Richard Pollock reported Friday, the Federal Reserve´s inspector general has opened an investigation into why what started out as a $55 million renovation of the new bureau´s central headquarters has ballooned to $145 million in less than two years. The investigation was requested by Rep.

Poll: 71% of Obama supporters

Over seven in 10 Obama voters, and 55 percent of Democrats, regret voting for President Obama´s reelection in 2012, according to a new Economist/YouGov.com poll. Conducted to test the media hype about a comeback by 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, the new poll found voters still uninspired by Romney, but also deeply dissatisfied with Obama who has so far failed to capitalize on his victory over 15 months ago. The poll asked those who voted for Obama´s reelection a simple question: “Do you regret voting for Barack Obama?” — Overall, 71 percent said yes, 26 percent no. — 80

DHS Building National License

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is seeking to build a national license plate reader database, according to a recent job posting for government contractors. The posting, first reported by Ars Technica, seeks a contractor to build a national license plate recognition database for DHS and Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents. Automated license plate recognition (ALPR) technology uses cameras to identify cars, alert police departments if they match a license plate on a “hot list,” and track their movements. “In support of its public safety focus, ICE, consistent with other law enforcement agency practice, is exploring the ability to obtain access to

President Obama will unveil the next phase of fuel economy and greenhouse gas standards for heavy-duty vehicles on Tuesday. During his visit to a Safeway distribution center in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, Obama will announce the new standards, which build upon the first standards the administration finalized for big rigs, semi trucks, buses and other heavy-duty vehicles in 2011. The new standards continue Obama´s promised "year of action," a White House official said on Monday. In the last five days, including the new fuel economy standards, the administration has set a stricter tone on the president´s climate policies. On Friday, Obama

Former Rep. Mel Reynolds (D-Ill.) has been arrested in Zimbabwe by immigration officers, according to multiple reports. News outlet AllAfrica reports Reynolds was arrested on Monday on charges of violating immigration laws by carrying expired travel documents and possessing pornographic material. "He has been picked up. Investigations are still underway and revealing information will jeopardize investigations that are underway," Assistant Regional Immigration Officer Francis Mabika told AllAfrica. Reynolds resigned from Congress in 1995 after being charged with 12 counts of statutory rape, solicitation of child porn and obstruction of justice. The former congressman arrived to Zimbabwe in November, and was given a two-week visa,

South Carolina Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy promised his party is “going to respond” to President Obama’s pledge to use executive orders to work around congressional opposition, saying they would use the “power of the purse” to cut funding for the White House’s pet projects. Gowdy spoke with Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro about the president’s use of executive orders to change and delay parts of Obamacare and otherwise change legislation without congressional input. The congressman expressed an unwillingness to wait around for judges to rule in Congress’ favor. “We have appropriations bills that are going to be coming through the House this spring,”

Chicago - For many older Americans who lost jobs during the recession, the quest for health care has been one obstacle after another. They're unwanted by employers, rejected by insurers, struggling to cover rising medical costs and praying to reach Medicare age before a health crisis. These luckless people, most in their 50s and 60s, have emerged this month as early winners under the nation's new health insurance system. Along with their peers who are self-employed or whose jobs do not offer insurance, they have been signing up for coverage in large numbers, submitting new-patient forms at doctor's offices and filling prescriptions

Pelosi explained why the law is “very sound policy” during a press conference Friday: To go to back to our founders once again, they sacrificed it all for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Kerry’s visit to the modern Istiqlal Mosque in central Jakarta, said to be the largest mosque in Southeast Asia with a capacity of 130,000, was designed to demonstrate his respect for Islam as he visited the world’s largest Muslim-majority nation. — Having removed his shoes in keeping with Islamic custom, Kerry at one point was shown a gigantic, skin-covered drum which rests sideways

There´s a debate going on about Hillary Clinton´s past. If she runs for president in 2016, should Republicans reach back to the scandals of her years as First Lady? Or should they focus on more recent times, especially her tenure as Secretary of State, to build a case against her? The GOP doesn´t have to choose. Of course Clinton´s recent experiences are relevant to a presidential run. But so are her actions in the 90s, the 80s and even the 70s. It´s not ancient history; it reveals something about who Clinton was and still is. And re-examining her past is entirely consistent with practices in recent campaigns. In the 2012 presidential race,

Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Sunday warned his party not to highlight the Monica Lewinsky scandal when attacking possible Democratic White House frontrunner Hillary Clinton, saying to keep attention instead on Clinton´s record.

WASHINGTON — Politics is sometimes the art of choosing the lesser of evils. For Sen. John Cornyn and other GOP leaders, it was better to let Democrats raise the debt ceiling last week than to dig in and risk a federal default. But tamping down a filibuster from Sen. Ted Cruz invited the wrath of the tea party. We’ll find out soon enough whether Cornyn pays a price — or, possibly, emerges stronger and more independent after the March 4 primary.(Snip)To many Republicans, the fight Cruz had picked was the wrong one. Default would have dire implications for the world economy. Even toying

The weirdest thing about John Kerry´s weekend speech on climate-change—other than the fact that this is the same guy who in 1997 voted to forbid the U.S. from signing the Kyoto Protocol—is that it begins by quoting something Maurice Strong said at the U.N.´s 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro: "Every bit of evidence I´ve seen persuades me that we are on a course leading to tragedy." Maurice who? Mr. Strong, a former oil executive from Canada (he was Pierre Trudeau´s pick to run state-owned Petro-Canada in the mid-1970s), was for many years the U.N.´s ultimate mandarin.

A new poll puts Obama’s false promise, “if you like your healthcare plan you can keep it,” in perspective: 64% of Americans say ObamaCare would’ve never passed if Americans had known the truth in 2009. Moreover, the Fox news poll found the sentiment to be spread across all party lines, with 74% of Republicans, 68% of Independents and 54% of Democrats saying Obama’s unpopular healthcare program would never have passed. Even more troubling, 56% of Americans said ObamaCare was more about the government seizing control of citizens’ lives, versus just 40% who felt Obama’s plan was about improving healthcare.

An extensive collection of papers related to Bill and Hillary Clinton’s years in the Arkansas governor’s mansion remains under tight control at a public library in Little Rock, with access restricted by the Clinton Foundation. President Bill Clinton donated his papers from his tenure as Arkansas governor to the Central Arkansas Library System (CALS) in 2003, and they are housed at the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies in Little Rock. The documents could provide new insight into the early chapter of the Clintons’ political careers, as reporters take a second look at Hillary Clinton’s past in light of the information contained in
