Family Security Matters

by ANDREW EICHER

 

Montana’s Senate Bill 97, which bans the application of foreign laws in Montana, passed the Republican-controlled House Judiciary along party lines and will now move to the House floor, Montana Public Radio reported on March 13.

While the legislation does not specifically mention Sharia law, both those in favor of and in opposition to the measure have referred to it in hearings as the “Sharia law bill.”  Sharia law is what governs Islamic societies, in the public square and in the home.

The bill’s sponsor, state Senator Keith Regier (R-Kalispell) insists that his intent is to protect the fundamental liberties of Montana citizens by forbidding the use of foreign laws in state courts.

“For these immigrants to retain their diverse rule of law would create a society in chaos,” said Regier, as reported by the Flathead Beacon.

Sandy Montgomery, a constituent of Regier’s, defended the measure, calling it “long overdue.”

“We have allowed legal immigrants, illegal immigrants, and now refugees to take advantage of our law and our culture and to take up their own agendas,” she said. “They have no intention to abide by our laws nor are they interested in assimilating into our culture.”

Sandy Bradford of Helena fears that the application of Sharia law in state courts would hurt women’s rights.

“It is my opinion that Islam is not a peaceful religion,” said Bradford. “In fact Islam is not a religion at all but rather an ideology. Islam in my opinion is an enemy to all. But especially to women.”

Rachel Carroll Rivas, co-director of the Montana Human Rights Network, decried the bill as “a direct reaction to Islamophobia” and an “underhanded effort to spread an alarmist message about Islam in order to keep Muslims in the United States on the margins.”

The legislation is “rooted in xenophobia that is unfounded and unfair,” she said.

The bill now advances to the House floor for debate. Should it pass, it will go to Governor Steve Bullock, a Democrat, for consideration.

DHS is on the Ground in Kalispell, Montana

The Daily Sheeple

As many who study the “war on terror” will agree, the apparatus implemented by the Federal Government to fight the phony war has been turned around on the American populace.  Almost all large cities, and many smaller ones, have beefed up their armaments to ridiculous levels.  Even the NY Times has noticed this phenomenon.  Even the sparsely populated Flathead Valley, Montana is not immune from DHS intervention.  With Kalispell, Montana being one of the hubs of the Liberty Movement, it comes as no surprise that DHS has set-up shop here.

In the interview below, I speak to an eyewitness who followed four of these vehicles through town.  At one point, they were flanked by air support with a .50 caliber machine-gunner on back.  Please take the time to comment on this article below if you live in the Flathead Valley and you have seen similar vehicles.

Proposed bill calls presidential birth records into question

KBZK

Montana could be one of a handful of states to join in a movement calling for presidential candidates to provide proof of their U.S. citizenship.

MT State Representative Bob Wagner (R-Harrison) is carrying a bill that would require presidential candidates and congressional candidates to file copies of their birth certificates with the Montana Secretary of State.

The issue has been in the spotlight in recent years as controversy has swirled around the birth certificate of President Obama.

White House land grab

Washington Times

By Sen. Jim DeMint

You’d think the Obama administration is busy enough controlling the banks, insurance companies and automakers, but thanks to whistleblowers at the Department of the Interior, we now learn they’re planning to increase their control over energy-rich land in the West.

A secret administration memo has surfaced revealing plans for the federal government to seize more than 10 million acres from Montana to New Mexico, halting job- creating activities like ranching, forestry, mining and energy development. Worse, this land grab would dry up tax revenue that’s essential for funding schools, firehouses and community centers.

President Obama could enact the plans in this memo with just the stroke of a pen, without any input from the communities affected by it.

At a time when our national unemployment rate is 9.7 percent, it is unbelievable anyone would be looking to stop job-creating energy enterprises, yet that’s exactly what’s happening?


The document lists 14 properties that, according to the document, “might be good candidates” for Mr. Obama to nab through presidential proclamation. Apparently, Washington bureaucrats believe it’s more important to preserve grass and rocks for birdwatchers and backpackers than to keep these local economies thriving.

Administration officials claim the document is merely the product of a brainstorming session, but anyone who reads this memo can see that it is a wish list for the environmentalist left. It discusses, in detail, what kinds of animal populations would benefit from limiting human activity in those areas.

The 21-page document, marked “Internal Draft-NOT FOR RELEASE,” names 14 different lands Mr. Obama could completely close for development by unilaterally designating them as “monuments” under the 1906 Antiquities Act.

It says all kinds of animals would be better off by doing so, like the coyotes, badgers, grouse, chickens and lizards. But giving the chickens more room to roost is no reason for the government to override states’ rights.

Rep. Robert Bishop, Utah Republican, made the memo public because he didn’t want another unilateral land grab by the White House, like what happened under former Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carte
