Religious Liberties Protected in FL Public Schools

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Governor Rick Scott recently signed SB 436, known as the “Florida Student and School Personnel Religious Liberties Act,” which prohibits public school districts from discrimination against students, parents, or personnel on basis of religious views or expression.

Sponsored by Sen. Dennis Baxley, SB 436 will take effect on July 1, 2017. Baxley said, “Part of what we’re protecting is those basic rights for religious expression - which are protected free speech - and we’re letting people know it doesn’t stop at the property line of the school site. We owe our educators some clarity on this so it can be applied uniformly across the state and in a way that respects all faiths and [people of] no faith.”

Trump signs VA reform bill, following through on campaign promise

President Trump on Friday signed Veterans Affairs reform legislation meant to protect whistleblowers while making it easier to fire problematic employees at the department.

The Department of Veterans Affairs Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act passed by Congress earlier this month streamlines the process to remove, demote, or suspend VA employees for poor performance or misconduct. In addition, it authorizes the VA secretary to recoup any bonuses awarded to employees who have acted improperly.—More..

Who’s Yehoodi?

On the old Bob Hope radio shows, Jerry Colona created a catch phrase, Who’s Yehoodi? The response was, “The little man who wasn’t there!”

Yehoodi has reappeared as, “The unnamed anonymous sources,” created by the desperate democrats and adapted as the darling of the mainstream media.

You can be sure he is going to be a mainstay for the 2018 congressional election and the 2020 presidential election, because of his vast repertoire of lies and innuendos that have been widely utilized today, to cripple the present administration from draining the swamp and passing any serious legislation, amending or eliminating programs that are costly and haven’t worked in the past.

God forbid, if the country ever reverts to a socialistic pattern again, you won’t have to ask, Who’s Yehoodi? You’ll know!

Elizabeth Warren: “People will die” under the Republican healthcare proposal

I listened to Elizabeth Warren, this morning,  emphatically stating “people will die” under the Republican healthcare proposal. 

Hmmm. I’m as sure as Ms. Warren that people are dying as a result of Obamacare and as a result of the VeteransAdministration. You will never
hear about those poor people.

Also, the average age of an American is getting older as a result of the Baby Boom of the late 1940s. More people are going to die. Not from anything except old age.

Senator Warren, is using an old Democratic tactic, try to scare people. Give them half truths in order to garner support. Her statements are about as truthful as her Native American heritage.

The Ice Is Melting! The Ice Is Melting! Run for Your Lives!

Chicken Little never takes a vacation when it comes to environmental scares. A spring without birds, overpopulation, mass famines, resource exhaustion, rainforest destruction, mass extinctions, global cooling, acid rain, ozone depletion, global warming … the list could go on and on.

Just on the topic of global warming Chicken Little touts a new alarm pretty much every day.

Chris Mooney, a Chicken Little eco-alarmist if ever there was one, trumpeted another last week in the Washington Post: “Scientists stunned by Antarctic rainfall and a melt area bigger than Texas” began with this shriek:—More…

THIRD FAST & FURIOUS REPORT SHOWS PATTERN OF OBSTRUCTION

BELLEVUE, WA – The third report on the House Oversight Committee’s investigation of the Operation Fast and Furious scandal strongly suggests that the Department of Justice under then-Attorney General Eric Holder engaged in obstruction of Congress, the Citizen’s Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.

“We took our time examining the 262-page report,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, “and we are appalled. It has taken six years since hearings were held in 2011 on that Obama administration scandal for this report to be released, and what this document shows is a pattern of deliberate stonewalling by an administration that claimed to be the most transparent in history.

New study: millions of non-citizens may have voted in 2012

Voter fraud and immigration are the third rails of Democrat politics. You can touch anything, but not those. We have a pretty good idea about the latter, but the effect of the former on our politics remains a mystery. Our system of elections is filled with irregularities. Fraud is routine, especially in political machines, and comes in many forms. There is little in the way of real enforcement.

So we’re in a political twilight zone and we can only grope about for the truth.

As many as 5.7 million noncitizens may have voted in the 2008 election, which put Barack Obama in the White House.

Stoners causing more auto accidents in idiot states that have legalized pot

Getting stoned affects your ability to drive safely. You wouldn’t think that would be a major revelation. For most people, it’s common sense. But in an age when we’re seeing a concerted propaganda campaign that claims marijuana is either a) not harmful at all, which is absurd; or b) “less harmful than alcohol,” which is meaningless. If you’re going to do something stupid, the proper comparison is not to what would have happened if you’d done some other stupid thing. It’s to if you’d not done anything stupid at all.

We already know that marijuana breeds irresponsibility, especially in younger users, and it’s long been understood that it affects both the depth perception and the reflexes of people behind the wheels of cars.

Anger Privilege

If you want to know who has privilege in a society and who doesn’t, follow the anger.

There are people in this country who can safely express their anger. And those who can’t. If you’re angry that Trump won, your anger is socially acceptable. If you were angry that Obama won, it wasn’t.

James Hodgkinson’s rage was socially acceptable. It continued to be socially acceptable until he crossed the line into murder. And he’s not alone. There’s Micah Xavier Johnson, the Black Lives Matter cop-killer in Dallas, and Gavin Long, the Black Lives Matter cop-killer in Baton Rouge. If you’re black and angry about the police, your anger is celebrated. If you’re white and angry about the Terror travel ban, the Paris Climate treaty, ObamaCare repeal or any leftist cause, you’re on the side of the angry angels.

California Reinvents Medical Tourism

Until very recently medical tourism was traveling from your home to find less expensive medical care, usually overseas. Medical tourists were leaving the warm embrace of the American Medical Association and the FDA to journey far from home. There were three motivations: Elective plastic surgery not covered by insurance, wanting to try an experimental procedure not covered or getting surgery done without benefit of any insurance at all.

That’s why breasts were being lifted in Brazil and hips replaced in India. Particularly courageous patients scheduled foreign heart transplants. I know all about this because I was almost a medical tourist myself. A few years ago we had what was laughingly called health insurance. Our deductible was so high you had to have been on life support for a week before coverage started.

Call your Democrat Congressmen and let them know you support Nancy Pelosi as House Minority Leader

In the wake of the Democrats’ costly, humiliating, loss in the Georgia special election, the knives are out for Nancy Pelosi. Rather than blame their platform, their rejected positions, or their radical-left-wing agenda, they’ve chosen to place responsibility for their current predicament on a scapegoat. Many in the Democratic Party have been questioning Pelosi’s leadership, and there are now calls for her to step down as House Minority Leader.

Why did the DNC refuse to let the FBI look at its servers?

The fact that last year the Democratic National Committee refused to allow the FBI to examine its servers after Democrats claimed Russia hacked into them during the election cycle has always bugged me.

It doesn’t seem like something the DNC would do if it really wanted justice to be done. Could this refusal to let the world’s most respected law enforcement agency examine its servers be part of some kind of cover-up? And what about the scandal surrounding Democrats hiring the Awan brothers? As the Daily Caller reported, “Hina Alvi, her husband Imran Awan, and his brothers Abid and Jamal were highly paid shared IT administrators working for multiple House Democrats until their access to congressional IT systems was terminated Feb. 2 as a result” of an investigation into “a major security breach on the House of Representatives computer network.”
