Three Muslim employees at an Amazon warehouse in Minneapolis say they "have experienced discriminatory treatment, hostile work environment, retaliation, and constructive discharge" at work, according to a letter written by Muslim Advocates. The advocacy group says the three women, identified only as Ms. A, Ms. B. and Ms. C., are all black women of Somali origin. They feel they are being discriminated agains on the basis of their race, religion, and national origin — and they say they are not alone. "The conditions described in their charges reflect a broader pattern and practice of unlawful employment discrimination against Muslim, Somali,


Ilhan Omar is now tweeting about this. It´s all about the praying, nothing more.

FTA: "Prayer breaks less than 20 minutes are paid, and associates are welcome to request an unpaid prayer break for over 20 minutes for which productivity expectations would be adjusted. We encourage anyone to compare Amazon´s pay, benefits, and workplace to other retailers, and to come take a tour and see firsthand."

Sounds to me that those three want to have "better" treatment than the rest of Amazon´s employees, they aren´t happy with the "rights" in the employee handbook that apply to all religious prayer requests.

Are people never going to learn that you will never satisfy these muslims. If you gave them time to pray, and then gave Christians the same amount of time to pray, the muzzles would claim that the Christian prayer upsets them, is hostile and would have to stop. I´m sure they´ve already complained and had pork products and non-halal meat removed from the cafeteria.

Someone needs to tell them to get a grip or go home. This is not Somalia. Ilhan is not a role model for them.

When inviting people to live in a residence shared with others it is prudent and polite to first ask the other residents if they approve of the new person moving in. If they are not asked before the new person takes up lodging it is inevitable that frictions and resentments will crop up and fester. Muslims from Somalia and other strange places were invited into places like Minneapolis and Lewiston, ME without the knowledge or prior approval of residents. The newcomers are backward, antagonistic, arrogant, violent and demanding but offer nothing of any real value in return. If they have complaints about having to conform to our customs, tough. Many Americans don´t want them here and don’t care if they disapprove of our ways. Elites keep insisting that white people achieve sainthood and be the ones to rise above the difficult situations which abound in human affairs. An impossible expectation, yes, but it keeps us in line while money keeps flowing to the elites themselves and their children.

Christians at work have a far better deal; we can pray in staff meetings, or in the file room, or anywhere else because we don´t have to make a big outward show of it. Look at it this way; at least you´ve GOT a job.

How many breaks do Amazon employees get besides lunch? Why do Muslims need 20 minutes to pray? Why do they need to pray three times at work? Usually an 8-hour work day includes 1/2 hour for lunch, not one hour. Why can´t they pray before they go to work, when they get home from work, and before they go to bed? That would leave two opportunities to pray at work, including at lunch time.

FTA: "The three employees allege Amazon does not offer an adequate space to pray"

But why should any employer provide spaces for prayer in the first place?

FTA: "The conditions described in their charges reflect a broader pattern and practice of unlawful employment discrimination against Muslim, Somali, and East African workers at Amazon,"

How many Somali and East African employees are not Muslim? I´d wager, not many.

Of all my jobs,...I never thought of asking if I could pray on company time. I also never thought of asking if I could watch TV, take a nap, pray, read a book, have a glass of wine or beer or have my wife or girlfriend in for a quickie also. I never asked if I could work on my car or give it a wash. My mean bosses told me that what they were paying me for was to work and that I could do all of those other things on my own time and money.

They were so mean and oppressive. Maybe I should file a law suit against them.

My parents were pretty mean too. They made me clean up my room, mow the lawn and walk and feed the dogs and cats too. It was horrible!! How did I survive such treatment?

Your employer (no matter who it is) has the right to expect you to actually WORK during the time that he is paying you for. Being religious does not give you the right to stop and take that time to pray or other activities.

President Trump never revoked former CIA Director John Brennan's security clearance. The president announced in August that Brennan's security clearance was being stripped due to "erratic behavior" that disqualified him from having access to sensitive information. But the White House never followed through with the complicated bureaucratic process of revocation, a source told the New York Times. A CIA spokesperson declined to comment, telling the Washington Examiner the agency does not discuss individual security clearances. The White House did not immediately return a request for comment.

The crime was so horrific that U.S. prosecutors charged the men under terrorism statutes, extracted them from Rwanda and then took

It is tempting for normal people to ignore our president when he starts ranting about treason and corruption at the FBI. I understand the temptation. I’m the object of many of his rants, and even I try to ignore him. But we shouldn’t, because millions of good people believe what a president of the United States says. In normal times, that’s healthy. But not now, when the president is a liar who doesn’t care what damage he does to vital institutions. We must call out his lies that the FBI was corrupt and committed treason, that we spied on the Trump campaign and tried to defeat Donald Trump.

Catholic priests in California would be legally obligated to report to police sexual abuse confessions brought to them by fellow priests and other church employees if a bill quickly moving through the state legislature becomes law. Religious liberty advocates, including representatives of Catholic dioceses in California, challenge the legislation, saying it would invade a sacred space and direct priests to violate the “seal of confession.” “Sometimes the best intentions can lead to bad legislation,” Los Angeles Archbishop Jose Gomez said in a statement on California’s Senate Bill 360, which was approved by wide margins last week and now heads to the state Assembly. Under Roman Catholic teachings,

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), one of Congress’s loudest and consistent voices advocating impeachment, is ratcheting up her criticism of President Donald Trump after he mocked former Vice President Joe Biden during a recent visit to Japan. Over Memorial Day weekend, President Trump insulted Biden after North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un referred to the leading 2020 Democratic presidential candidate as a “fool of low IQ.” “I have confidence that Chairman Kim will keep his promise to me, & also smiled when he called Swampman Joe Biden a low IQ individual, & worse,” the president wrote in a since-deleted tweet. On Tuesday, Waters fired off a trio of tweets denouncing

All of the same deep state actors/manipulators keep surfacing and resurfacing, like a game of whac-a-mole, as sunlight gets closer to revealing their corrupt behavior. In the most recent example the familiar Senate Intelligence Committee Vice-Chairman Mark Warner pops his head-up to write a letter to the intelligence community telling them to defy the executive branch declassification directive, and turn to democrats in the legislative branch to defend them: (Snip)Laughably, predictably, and certainly not coincidentally, former FBI Director James Comey jumps quick to the typeset and writes a supportive op-ed for the Washinton Post:

Former Vice President Joe Biden cozied up to a 10-year-old girl on Tuesday, despite his promise to control his personal interactions with women and children. “I’ll bet you’re as bright as you are good-looking,” Biden said to a girl who asked him a question at an American Federation of Teachers town hall in Houston, Texas. He exclaimed when the girl told him that she wanted to be a journalist, and led her over to meet the reporters in the room. As he introduced the child to the press, he leaned over and spoke in her ear, before finishing his speech. “By the way, as these guys will tell you,
