The Age of Orwell: Religious Liberty is Being Phased Out of America

religious liberty

The federal and local government(s) have no problem appeasing Islam by refusing to acknowledge singular terror strikes/attacks as “Islamic” terrorism, choosing instead to call them “workplace violence” or “senseless violence”. By the way, considering democrats and the liberals/left refuse to see any war as a good war, exactly when/what is there ‘sensible violence’ to these people … and do we want to know (see Mao)? Anyhow, just as long as Muslim/Islam is not judged or held accountable for the behavior of its followers, it’s all good. But you can bet your house, kids, and everything you own that were these “lone wolves” Christians they would be roundly connected to the Christian church/faith/doctrine, and there would be an outcry from this administration/government and its sycophant MSM to say they represented the Christian religion. Some are already discounting Islam’s threat on us, and saying just that … That Christianity is more violent and dangerous to us than Islam. And they are saying it with straight faces.

Yet, if this administration isn’t sticking its middle digit in the eye of Israel, it is now beginning to go all fascist communist dictator “Big Brother” on our Christian institutions and churches. Least we forget the HHS mandate on them to provide objectionable contraception to female employees via ObamaCare.

Now, after decades of democrats and democrat/liberal endorsing churches and pastors politically pontificating from the pulpit with no scrutiny and/or ramifications, the Obama administration and its satellite henchmen at the state and local government levels are going after any/all churches and pastors/priests that dare oppose the agenda of this administration and/or government that goes against church teachings/beliefs/doctrine. But, you know, just so long as we do not insult Islam by confirming that their “lone wolf” terrorists are indeed representative of Islam’s doctrine and teachings in killing non-believers and ONLY installing peace after everyone of that non-Islamic ilk are either enslaved or dead, according to their primary and purist beliefs in their most holy books.

The IRS and Holder’s DOJ are looking to silence religious dissent to the growing overreach of the government into the core beliefs and values of Christian/Catholic churches as outline in our doctrines. Last month RedState covered this IRS intimidation, amid the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups charges being investigated…

IRS Has 99 Problems But the Church Ain’t One

It’s unsurprising that DOJ would be running interference for the IRS on this matter. Last week it was revealed that Attorney General Holder’s staff has been attempting to conspire with liberal members of Congress to spin and deflect attention away from the IRS targeting scandal.

Yet, despite the attempt to deflect attention from the matter the IRS admitted something in this letter that is chilling in and of itself. Commissioner Koskinen wrote:

Over a period of time, we identified the 99 churches as having potential impermissible political campaign intervention activities based on referrals received by our Exempt Organizations (EO) Examination function. The Political Activity Referral Committee (PARC), which consists of career civil service managers, reviews each referral and determines whether the case should be selected for further compliance review.

The IRS Commissioner also stated that PARC reviews began in 2012 after the initial referrals from the IRS division then run by Lois Lerner.

This means that at the same time the IRS was targeting conservative groups, it also was identifying churches as political targets.

The Orwellian sounding Political Activity Referral Committee has since been culling through these 99 churches for further review.

In addition, the IRS has given unknown assurances to an angry atheist group which was demanding that the IRS target churches.

What did the IRS tell FFRF, which induced them to drop their lawsuit in a settlement, that it refuses to tell the American people?

When viewed against the IRS targeting scandal backdrop the IRS’s admission that it is has targeted at least 99 churches for the same kind of scrutiny it was giving to the Tea Party and pro-life groups is disturbing to say the least. And the fact that the IRS refuses to release the details of its settlement with FFRF further exacerbates the concern.

The IRS has proven it can’t be trusted time and time again.

The federal government, under the current highly political agenda-driven Holder DOJ and the IRS being run from the White House as a weapon, insist Christian churches have no right to refuse a sacrament … yes, marriage is a ‘sacrament’ in most Christian/Catholic sects … and are on the verge of being forced to go against Christian doctrine.

Government to Ordained Ministers: Celebrate Same-Sex Wedding or Go to Jail

Already the mayor and city council of Houston, Texas are trying to set legal precedence in overseeing the content of religious preachings and sermons in Christian churches. Not satisfied with the left’s/Progressive’s indoctrination control over this nation’s public schools, we could very well next see them coming into our private religious schools (something the feds would never do to Muslim schools in this country) as they are in the UK…

Is the next step for those who oppose religious liberty to try to inspect religious schools?

Don’t dismiss that as crazy–it’s already happening in the United Kingdom..

In the name of tolerance, religious schools (to date, Christian and Jewish schools) in the UK are being “inspected” and in the case of one school, “downgraded,” for violating new education department guidelines the government there refers to as “British values.”

A government spokesman described the goal of such inspections as “ensuring that schools provide a broad and balanced education for their pupils” and that inspectors are there to evaluate “the effectiveness of the school’s provision for pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and how the school’s leadership and management ensure that the curriculum actively promotes British values.”

Never mind that the concern about what values their children are being taught is one of the main reasons parents choose to send their children to a religious school, instead of a government-run one, in the first place. In the UK, as is often the case here, the government thinks it knows better.

According to an article in The Telegraph, orthodox Jewish schools have filed complaints that its female students “from strict traditional backgrounds were allegedly asked whether they were being taught enough about lesbianism, whether they had boyfriends and if they knew where babies came from.”

At least one Christian school has been downgraded from a “good” school to an “adequate” school because it would not invite a leader of another religion, such as an imam, to lead its assembly.

You see, teaching about other cultures and other religions is apparently no longer enough–you must fully accept them. And as we’re seeing with the issue of same-sex marriage in this country, acceptance no longer means live and let live, the “tolerance” police want you to embrace and endorse.

Is religious freedom our most important right? Without question, promoting and defending it is one of our most important battles.

Do not take this lightly. Do not think just because you are, perhaps, not overly religious or don’t attend church that this fascist movement against our First Amendment rights in the Christian churches will not reach out and grab you by the neck soon enough. You will be held to silence soon enough.

Venezuela is Rationing Food and Importing Oil

venezuela food

With the Castro/Cuba hand firmly planted up the backside of the Maduro government, a country that could well-be a shining economic jewel of prosperity in South America Venezuela is drowning in its own failed Chavez legacy socialism/communism…

(WLRN) – Venezuela’s economic woes just won’t quit. Its currency recently hit an all-time low with black market traders. Now the South American country has to ration food – and, believe it or not, import oil.

Venezuela has the world’s largest oil reserves. But it produces mostly thick, heavy crude that has to be mixed with lighter oil to make it usable. Problem is, Venezuela’s seriously mismanaged state-run oil industry isn’t pumping enough light crude. So this weekend the country will receive its first ever shipment of foreign oil: two million barrels from Algeria.

“It’s a sad commentary,” says Russell Dallen, head of the Venezuela-based securities firm Caracas Capital Markets. “You’ve got a country that has more oil than Saudi Arabia. And Saudi Arabia can easily produce 11 million barrels a day. Venezuela can’t even produce 3 million barrels a day.”

That’s also bad news for Venezuela’s economic crisis. The country relies heavily on oil revenues. As global oil prices drop, shortages of basic goods are getting worse – and this week Venezuela even started a food-rationing program more reminiscent of Cuba. Possible debt default is another concern.

Obama’s E.P. Over 15,000 “Fast and Furious” Documents Exposed Included the Emails of AG Holder’s Wife and Mother

eric-holder-fast-and-furious

Well now…

(Judicial Watch) – Judicial Watch announced today that it received from the Obama Department of Justice (DOJ) a “Vaughn index” detailing records about the Operation Fast and Furious scandal. The index was forced out of the Obama administration thanks to JW’s June 2012 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request and subsequent September 2012 FOIA lawsuit (Judicial Watch v. Department of Justice (No. 1:12-cv-01510)). A federal court had ordered the production over the objections of the Obama Justice Department.

The document details the Attorney General Holder’s personal involvement in managing the Justice Department’s strategy on media and Congressional investigations into the Fast and Furious scandal. Notably, the document discloses that emails between Attorney General Holder and his wife Sharon Malone – as well as his mother – are being withheld under an extraordinary claim of executive privilege as well as a dubious claim of deliberative process privilege under the Freedom of Information Act. The “First Lady of the Justice Department” is a physician and not a government employee.

This is the first time that the Obama administration has provided a detailed listing of all records being withheld from Congress and the American people about the deadly Fast and Furious gun running scandal. The 1307-page “draft” Vaughn index was emailed to Judicial Watch at 8:34 p.m. last night, a few hours before a federal court-ordered deadline. In its cover letter, the Department of Justice asserts that all of the responsive records described in the index are “subject to the assertion of executive privilege.”

The Vaughn index explains 15,662 documents. Typically, a Vaughn index must: (1) identify each record withheld; (2) state the statutory exemption claimed; and (3) explain how disclosure would damage the interests protected by the claimed exemption. The Vaughn index arguably fails to provide all of this required information but does provide plenty of interesting information for a public kept in the dark for years about the Fast and Furious scandal.

Based on a preliminary review of the massive document, Judicial Watch can disclose that the Vaughn index reveals:

  • Numerous emails that detail Attorney General Holder’s direct involvement in crafting talking points, the timing of public disclosures, and handling Congressional inquiries in the Fast and Furious matter.
  • President Obama has asserted executive privilege over nearly 20 email communications between Holder and his spouse Sharon Malone. The administration also claims that the records are also subject to withholding under the “deliberative process” exemption. This exemption ordinarily exempts from public disclosure records that could chill internal government deliberations.
  • Numerous entries detail DOJ’s communications (including those of Eric Holder) concerning the White House about Fast and Furious.
  • The scandal required the attention of virtually every top official of the DOJ and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF). Communications to and from the United States Ambassador to Mexico about the Fast and Furious matter are also described.
  • Many of the records are already publicly available such as letters from Congress, press clips, and typical agency communications. Ordinarily, these records would, in whole or part, be subject to disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act. Few of the records seem to even implicate presidential decision-making and advice that might be subject to President Obama’s broad and unprecedented executive privilege claim.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton criticized President Obama and his disgraced Attorney General in a statement today:

This document provides key information about the cover-up of Fast and Furious by Attorney General Eric Holder and other high-level officials of the Obama administration. Obama’s executive privilege claims over these records are a fraud and an abuse of his office. There is no precedent for President Obama’s Nixonian assertion of executive privilege over these ordinary government agency records. Americans will be astonished that Obama asserted executive privilege over Eric Holder’s emails to his wife about Fast and Furious.

Once again, Judicial Watch has proven itself more effective than Congress and the establishment media in providing basic oversight of this out-of-control Administration. This Fast and Furious document provides dozens of leads for further congressional, media, and even criminal investigations.

Juveniles in Charge of Ebola: “Self-Isolated” Infected Doctor Goes Bowling with Friends in NYC…

dr ebola

A doctor that had just returned from treating Ebola patients in West Africa who was supposed to be self-isolating for the next 20-odd days to be certain he had not been infected went bowling in NYC…

italian ebola meme

(FOX News) – Health and New York City officials were trying Friday morning to follow the trail of a young emergency room doctor who traveled about the city for three days before being hospitalized for the Ebola virus.

The doctor, Craig Spencer, a member of Doctors Without Borders who had been working in Guinea, returned six days ago and reported Thursday morning coming down with a 100.3-degree fever and diarrhea. He was being treated in an isolation ward at Manhattan’s Bellevue Hospital, a designated Ebola center.

In the days before Spencer fell ill, he went on a 3-mile jog, went to the High Line park, rode the subway and, on Wednesday night, got a taxi to a Brooklyn bowling alley. Bassett said he felt fatigued Wednesday but not feverish until Thursday morning.

The bowling alley was shuttered Thursday night, and issued a statement saying, “We’ve been in constant contact with the Health Department and they have determined that there was no risk to our customers.”

Spencer rode the subway in the past five days, traveling on the A, L and 1 lines, a law-enforcement source told The New York Post.

Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Thursday urged residents not to be alarmed by the doctor’s Ebola diagnosis, even as they described him riding the subway, taking a cab and bowling. De Blasio said all city officials followed “clear and strong” protocols in their handling and treatment of him.

“We want to state at the outset that New Yorkers have no reason to be alarmed,” de Blasio said. “New Yorkers who have not been exposed are not at all at risk.”

Health officials say the chances of the average New Yorker contracting Ebola, which is spread through direct contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person, are slim. Someone can’t be infected just by being near someone who is sick with Ebola. Someone isn’t contagious unless he is sick.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which will do a further test to confirm the initial results, has dispatched an Ebola response team to New York. President Barack Obama spoke to Cuomo and de Blasio Thursday night and offered the federal government’s support. He asked them to stay in close touch with Ron Klain, his “Ebola czar,” and public health officials in Washington.

The city’s disease detectives have been tracing Spencer’s contacts to identify anyone who may be at risk. The city’s health commissioner, Mary Bassett, said Spencer’s fiancee and two friends had been quarantined but showed no symptoms.

Bassett said the probability was “close to nil” that Spencer’s subway ride would pose a risk. Still, the bowling alley was closed as a precaution, and Spencer’s Harlem apartment was cordoned off. The Department of Health was on site across the street from the apartment building Thursday night, giving out information to area residents.

[...]

According to a rough timeline provided by city officials, Spencer felt fatigue Wednesday and when he felt worse Thursday he and his fiancee made a joint call to authorities to detail his symptoms and his travels. EMTs in full Ebola gear arrived and took him to Bellevue in an ambulance surrounded by police squad cars.
