ISLAMIC TRIBUNAL CONFIRMED IN TEXAS; ATTORNEY CLAIMS ‘IT’S VOLUNTARY’

Free Republic

An Islamic Tribunal using Sharia law in Texas has been confirmed by Breitbart Texas. The tribunal is operating as a non-profit organization in Dallas. One of the attorneys for the tribunal said participation and acceptance of the tribunal’s decisions are “voluntary.”

Breitbart Texas spoke with one of the “judges,” Dr. Taher El-badawi. He said the tribunal operates under Sharia law as a form of “non-binding dispute resolution.” El-badawi said their organization is “a tribunal, not arbitration.” A tribunal is defined by Meriam-Webster’s Dictionary as “a court or forum of justice.” The four Islamic attorneys call themselves “judges” not “arbitrators.”

El-badawi said the tribunal follows Sharia law to resolve civil disputes in family and business matters. He said they also resolve workplace disputes.

Mississippi Legislation Declares All Federal Gun Control Unconstitutional

Tenth Amendment Center

Two bills filed in the Mississippi House and Senate would make it an express duty of the state government to protect the gun rights of Mississippians against federal gun control measures.

House Bill 1297 (HB1297) was filed by Rep. Staples last week. It declares “All federal acts, laws, orders, rules or regulations regarding firearms are a violation of the Second Amendment.”

In other words, as the Founders understood, the federal government has no authority over firearms, period.

The bill goes on to declare that all such federal acts are “invalid in this state, shall not be recognized by this state, are specifically rejected by this state, and shall be considered null and void and of no effect in this state.”

It continues with a requirement to stop federal gun control in the state:

Flopping Aces

It has been concluded that Bowe Bergdahl is a deserter:

The Army has decided to charge Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was released by Taliban-aligned militants last year in exchange for five Guantanamo prisoners, with desertion, according to a former military intelligence officer.

Retired Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer, who now works at the London Center for Policy Research, told Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor” Monday night that he’s learned of the military’s decision from two sources.

“The Army has come to its conclusion, and Bowe Bergdahl … will be charged with desertion,” he said.

Four-Star General Tells Congress: Al-Qaeda Has “Grown Four-Fold in Last Five Years”

Gateway Pundit

During the 2012 election cycle Barack Obama repeatedly claimed al-Qaeda was “on the path to defeat.”

On Tuesday four-star General Jack Keane told Congress that al-Qaeda has “grown fourfold in the last five years.”
Bridget Johnson at PJ Media reported:

The former vice chief of staff of the Army warned the Senate Armed Services Committee today that al-Qaeda has “grown fourfold in the last five years.”

“AQ and its affiliates exceeds Iran in beginning to dominate multiple countries,” retired four-star Gen. Jack Keane testified.

Using a term that the Obama administration now eschews, Keane called radical Islam “the major security challenge of our generation.”…

…”The Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, ISIS, is an outgrowth from Al-Qaeda in Iraq, which was defeated in Iraq by 2009.”

After U.S. troops pulled out of Iraq in 2011, ISIS reemerged as a terrorist organization in Iraq, moved into Syria in 2012, and began seizing towns and villages from the Syria-Iraq border all the way to the western Syria from Aleppo to Damascus,” he reminded the committee.

That leads to an “unmistakable” conclusion that “our policies have failed,” Keane added.

The Obama Admin Refuses to Release White House Benghazi Photos

Joe for America

The “Most Transparent Administration Ever” has repeatedly refused to release photos taken by White House photographers on the night of the Benghazi attack.  White House Press Secretary Joshua (oxymoron alert) Earnest will not even comment on the subject, let alone release the photos.

Why would those photos be classified?  Why couldn’t they be released?  Why SHOULDN’T they be released?

After all, this is the most transparent administration in history, right?

We wonder if those pictures show what the President was actually doing while our Ambassador was being raped and murdered.  Maybe he was fine tuning the fund raising speech he gave the next day in Las Vegas.

Report: Bergdahl to Be Charged with Desertion

Free Republic

On Monday’s broadcast of “The O’Reilly Factor” on the Fox News Channel, retired Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer of the London Center for Policy Research revealed to host Bill O’Reilly that sources tell him U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl will face charges for desertion.

 

Bergdahl was held captive by the Taliban-aligned Haqqani network in Afghanistan from June 2009 until his release in May 2014, which was part of a prisoner exchange for five Taliban members who were being held at the detention center at Guantanamo Bay.
