This is what Saudi officials did to a young girl who professed “Jesus as her savior”

This is what Saudi officials did to a young girl who professed “Jesus as her savior”.

A recent report by a human rights organization in the Middle East stated that “..a young girl employed in Palmelkh, Saudi Arabia was barbarically punished because she had the audacity to say ‘..Jesus Christ, peace be upon him, is my personal Savior..’ “

The process utilized was not only inhumane but unsanitary.  The plastic thread that was used contained chemicals, for the sole purpose of intentionally causing infection.

This story has been confirmed through Human Rights Organizations that called this report: ‘..not only a reflection of the deadly Saudi Arabian Human Rights System, but a clearly flagrant violation of women’s rights.

The Muslim Brotherhood is set to launch its own political party in Barack Hussein Obama’s ‘Islamic States of America’

Designated by most of the world as a “terrorist organization,” the Muslim Brotherhood is set to launch its own political party in Barack Hussein Obama’s ‘Islamic States of America’

6a00d8341c5c3553ef0128759f1db2970c-320wiWith an eye toward the 2016 election, the radical Muslim Brotherhood has built the framework for a political party in America that seeks to turn Muslims into an Islamofascist voting bloc. ’Muslim voters have the potential to be swing voters in 2016,” said Nihad Awad, executive director of terror-linked CAIR, in launching the benign-sounding U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations, whose membership reads like a Who’s Who of Brotherhood front groups.

Investor’s Business Daily (h/t M Johnston)  “We are aiming to bring more participation from the Muslim community.” USCMO also aims to elect Islamists in Washington, with the ultimate objective of “institutionalizing policies” favorable to Islamists — that is, Sharia law.

MuslimBrotherhoodGoal-vi

This development bears careful monitoring in light of the U.S. Brotherhood’s recently exposed goal to wage a “civilization jihad” against America that explicitly calls for infiltrating the U.S. political system and “destroying (it) from within.”

The subversive plan was spelled out in hundreds of pages of founding archives that the FBI confiscated from a Brotherhood leader’s home in the Washington suburbs after 9/11. Translated from Arabic, the secret documents listed a number of Brotherhood front organizations, like CAIR, — some of which just happen to make up the newly formed USCMO.

c60bf53ef019affa177f8970d700wi-vi

Front and center is the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations, the catalyst behind this Trojan horse jihadist political party.

CAIR is linked in federal criminal court documents to the terrorist group Hamas, the Brotherhood’s Palestinian branch. CAIR’s chief Awad, who announced the USCMO at the National Press Club, is so radioactive, the FBI refuses to do outreach with him and his so-called Muslim-rights group until it can “resolve whether there continues to be a connection between its executives and Hamas.”

dojcair-vi

Equally troubling is the Muslim American Society, another founding member of the USCMO. MAS was formed as “the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States,” a 2007 Justice Department court filing states. A 2011 MAS press release praised Osama bin Laden as “a visionary who believed in an Islamic state in Afghanistan.”

The list of bad actors doesn’t end there. The chairman of America’s new Islamist party is none other than Oussama Jammal, who once headed the notorious Bridgeview Mosque in Chicago.

0000809402097_370459_2244313_n-vi

One of that mosque’s leaders was arrested and jailed for funneling millions to Hamas. And one of its most honored guests was bin Laden’s spiritual mentor, the late Palestinian cleric Abdullah Azzam. Some of Azzam’s relatives are Bridgeview members.

“The walls were covered with Hamas posters and recruiting literature showing masked gunmen brandishing automatic weapons. . . . You could see daggers plunged into Jewish hearts wrapped up in American flags,” said Steve Emerson, describing the mosque in his book “American Jihad.” “They even had a library filled with terrorist videos.”

As Bridgeview’s president, Jammal blasted the FBI for arresting terrorist members and even expressed doubts that al-Qaida was responsible for 9/11. Not to worry. As head of the USCMO, he’ll see to it that the council places “premium” importance “on defining the common good based on the Quran and the model of the prophet (Muhammad), and coordinating institutions to implement that common good in American society.”

Sign seen at protest of Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt

Jammal and his equally checkered Brothers have a 30-point “policy platform” for “promoting Islam’s core universal principles to benefit American society” — none of which includes combating radicalism within the Muslim community.

Can any Muslim join USCMO? Nope. First you must fill out a four-page application and pass Brotherhood inspection. Then you have to cough up $1,000 a year — $3,500 if you want a voting membership.

Islamic reformer Zuhdi Jasser says he won’t be accepted. That’s because, as he astutely observes, America’s first Muslim political party is made up “of the inner core of American Islamist organizations” trying to “deceive Americans as an innocent ‘Muslim coalition.’”

Beijing Hotel Workers Already ‘fed up’

Beijing hotel workers already ‘fed up’ with Obama entourage in 3400-square-foot, $8,350-per-night suite inconveniencing ‘pretty much everyone’ – and the first lady’s mother is ‘barking at the staff’

  • Michelle Obama, her daughters and her mother Marian Robinson are staying in a sumptuous presidential suite at a Beijing Westin hotel
  • Mrs. Robinson has been ‘barking at the staff since she arrived,’ a hotel staffer said, adding that ‘we can’t wait for this to be over’
  • Secret Service agents are monopolizing elevators and booting high-paying guests from their rooms to occupy a block of space near the first lady
  • Both front and back doors of the hotel are blocked off, with Chinese and U.S. security agents screening everyone who enters
  • Ordinary Chinese describe Mrs. Obama and her family as kind and gracious, but hotel staff are ‘fed up’

Michelle Obama and three of her family members are staying in a $8,350-per-night Beijing presidential suite, but despite a 24-hour butler and other perks that come with the lodging, her entourage has inconvenienced ‘pretty much everyone’ and made the hotel staff ‘fed up,’ a well-placed hotel staffer has told MailOnline.

The sumptuous pad at the Westin Beijing Chaoyang hotel – its website calls the room ‘an oasis of comfort – is a 3,400-square-foot masterpiece including a private steam room, ‘corner sofas with silk pillows,’ and in-room dining for six.

But the Obamas’ stay has already affected staff and guests at the hotel, with the Westin front-desk veteran alleging that Mrs. Obama’s mother Marian Robinson has been ‘barking at the staff since she arrived.’

Many of the agents in Mrs. Obama’s detail are Asian-American, helping them avoid standing out while they protect the first lady — but confusing some hotel guests who don’t understand why they can’t board some elevators

Government security forces from both China and the U.S. started Thursday to screen everyone who entered the building, including paying guests, setting up checkpoints that resemble those at airline concourse entrances.

The Secret Service’s monopoly on the hotel’s highest floors has meant the Westin had to boot guests with previous reservations out of their executive-level rooms.

Secret Service agents are also monopolizing hotel elevators long before the Obamas need them, added the staffer, who identified himself as a member of the concierge staff and spoke English during a phone call on Friday.

‘Many of them are Asian, too, or Americans who are Asian, so you know our guests don’t understand.’

‘We can’t wait for this to be over, to tell you the truth,’ he said in a sudden hush. ‘We entertain many important people here, but this has been, I think, very different.’

A spokesperson for Mrs. Obama declined to comment.

A U.S. Secret Service spokesperson promised answers to MailOnline’s questions but didn’t provide any in time for publication. The agency generally does not speak publicly about security arrangements for the officials it protects.

A spokesman for Starwood Hotels, which owns the Westin chain, referred questions to Secret Service.

Ordinary Chinese who have met the American first lady have described her in media reports as approachable and friendly, and the hotel staffer agreed.

‘The first lady is gracious, and the girls are lovely,’ he said.

The Westin employee and another colleague said Sasha and Malia Obama have been on their best behavior because Mrs. Robinson has kept them on a short leash.

They emphasized that they have had a disappointing experience with the protection detail that accompanies Mrs. Obama everywhere.

Wealthy hotel guests bumped from their reserved rooms into other less-luxurious accommodations have inundated the front desk with complaints.

As a condition of the first lady staying at the Westin, the Secret Service blocked off all the rooms near the presidential suite..

The Washington Times reported Thursday that an entourage of about 70 people is accompanying the guests of honor to China at taxpayer expense.

The White House has taken pains to frame Mrs. Obama’s trip as a cultural journey rather than a political one, but taxpayers are paying through the nose for it nonetheless.

China News Service described the first lady on Friday as ‘Mrs Diplomatic,’ and the Xinhua news agency dubbed the trip ‘an unprecedented and historical moment in the chapter of China–U.S. relations.’

The trip won’t come cheap.

Judicial Watch, a watchdog group in Washington, D.C., reports that it cost more than $11 million for President and Mrs. Obama to travel to Africa for Nelson Mandela’s memorial service in December.

The first couple were in Africa for less than 13 hours.

The Obamas’ 2013 visit to Africa, a longer affair, reportedly cost Americans more than $100 million.

Chris Christie’s internet sales tax by another name

Chris Christie’s internet sales tax by another name

Governor Christie wants to force out-of-state online businesses to collect and remit New Jersey sales tax. He claims that it’s only fair to the brick and mortar small businesses in New Jersey that already must collect sales tax from their customers.

Under current law, when a New Jersey resident makes a purchase from an out-of-state online business, they are required to calculate the New Jersey sales tax they owe and pay it when they file their income taxes. But most people don’t know they have to disclose their online purchases to the state, and so they don’t. Governor Christie and his supporters say that we need to “level the playing field,” among other jargon, to bring online businesses onto equal footing as brick and mortar businesses.

But what’s so irritating is that it’s not about fairness at all. It’s about filling up New Jersey’s coffers with new revenue.

When Amazon struck a deal with the state to build its warehouses in exchange for collecting NJ sales tax, the conversation was hardly about fairness. It was about the tax revenue that Amazon would bring in. It sure wasn’t about Amazon receiving tax incentives or millions of tax dollars in grants. And it certainly was not about the unfair advantage Amazon would then have over New Jersey small businesses who weren’t so fortunate to receive grant money from the state.

Christie’s newly claimed authority to tax beyond the boundaries of New Jersey is essentially the same as the Marketplace Fairness Act (MFA) legislation — the vaunted “internet sales tax” — pending in Congress that would allow states to require out-of-state online businesses to collect and remit their state’s. It’s supposed to take away the “unfair advantage” that out-of-state online businesses have on businesses with a physical presence in New Jersey.

But the MFA, and likewise Governor Christie’s agenda, is hardly fair, especially for small businesses. The next time the Governor touts “fairness” and the need to pass the MFA, remember these points:

1. The MFA allows states to levy taxes on individuals and businesses from other states. This is a clear violation of the Constitution, which provides that Congress shall regulate interstate commerce, not the states. It sets a dangerous precedent for states to tax other areas of interstate commerce.

2. The MFA will put upward pressure on sales taxes. If states are allowed to tax beyond their borders, it will destroy the barrier of competition among the states. States currently must compete with one another to entice businesses to set up shop in their state, primarily through offering low taxes. But if every state can tax individuals and businesses in every other state, there is no more incentive to keep taxes low. In fact, it would be in a state’s interest to raise sales taxes.

3. Small businesses will be crushed under the onerous MFA compliance regulations. Businesses with a physical presence only have to comply with the tax laws of their jurisdiction. Online businesses will be forced to comply with tax laws and regulations in up to 46 states and over 9,000 tax jurisdictions. That also means that online businesses can be audited by every state and tax jurisdiction they do business in. This is especially devastating for small businesses, who unlike Amazon and other big retailers, don’t have teams of corporate lawyers.

4. The MFA allows for regulation without representation. Because online businesses don’t have a physical presence in all the states they do business with, they will have no political recourse to protest unfair tax rates or enforcement. For example, if a New Jersey brick and mortar small businesses does just even a few online sales out of state, they will be subject to regulations and audits from those states. And if they wish to protest an unfair regulation or audit, too bad. They have no political rights outside of their state.

5. Customers could be improperly charged sales tax. This has already happened in New Jersey, where Amazon was mistakenly charging New Jersey customers tax on shipping when there is no state sales tax on shipping. If even a giant retailer like Amazon can’t keep straight the thousands of tax laws, a small business certainly can’t be expected to.

The internet sales tax and Governor Christie’s MFA-like policy are detrimental to small businesses and state sovereignty. If that still doesn’t convince you they’re a bad idea, just look at the support and opposition to the MFA. Big businesses like Amazon are in favor, and small businesses are opposed. That alone should raise a red flag.

It might not be worth mentioning if did not come on the heels of Best Buy’s controversial financial support of Muslim Brotherhood front group CAIR, not to mention previous campaigns which focused on Muslim holidays to exclusion of American holidays. Here we go again with a Best Buy employee named Mustafa.*

*Mustafa is the primary transliteration of the Arabic given name, Arabicمصطفى‎, Muṣṭafā. The name is an epithet of Muhammad that means, The Chosen One. It is a very common male given name, throughout the Muslim world.

An Obamacare Christmas

An Obamacare Christmas | The Daily Caller.

An Obamacare Christmas

The snowflakes were falling on Washington, D.C.
People were setting up their Christmas trees.
The chestnuts were roasting in Farragut Square,
With just a touch of magic in the silvery air.

But one man was unmoved by this Christmas drama.
Our 44th president, a grinch named Obama.
Looking out from the Oval Office, he took a grim view
As he surveyed the scene on Pennsylvania Avenue:

“Look at them out there,” he said to Sebelius.
“Ringing Christmas bells and singing old songs melodious.
But while they’re all caroling ‘O Holy Night,’
They’re badly neglecting my health care website.

“I gave them reform—they’ve been asking for years.
I pushed it through Congress, over Republicans’ fears.
They said ‘It’s a mistake. We are loath to begin it.’
But Pelosi said, ‘Pass it and then see what’s in it.’

“We Democrats passed it right down party lines.
They’ll all pay fair shares or else face hefty fines.
Republicans whined it’s ‘not how lawmaking’s done!’
To which we responded, ‘Get over it. We won.’

“The Supreme Court endorsed it, a ruling of note,
When Chief Justice Roberts cast the deciding vote.
I’m thankful his Commerce Clause interpretation was lax—
It isn’t a mandate, it’s only a tax!

“I had to make sure that the website worked well,
So I hired an old classmate of my wife, Michelle.
We spent $600 million and it took us three years,
But when the launch date came there was nothing but tears.

“Malfunctions were legion with crash after crash.
We were gonna need more of the taxpayers’ cash.
How much? We’re not telling! But no need to fret.
The law will be great, on that you can bet!

“In the meantime, with things all a tatter,
I held a press conference to quell all the chatter.
I gave a phone number, surely that would do,
But wouldn’t you know, they couldn’t get through.

“Now Congress and their staffs view the law with contempt,
But they’ll quiet down soon, ’cause they’ll all be exempt!
The gift of waivers I gave to businesses and friends.
With executive powers like mine, there’s really no end.

“Ted Cruz tried to stop it with all he could muster.
Why, he even held an old-fashioned talking filibuster.
He shouted ‘defund!’ for 21 hours,
But it didn’t take long for his fellow Republicans to cower.

“Still, signups were sluggish. They had to be faster,
Or else my new law would be a disaster.
I needed young people, the healthiest kind,
To pay for the rest. They’re politically blind!“

To subsidize old people across the nation,
We’re going to plunder the next generation.
It seemed so simple till the young folk got annoyed
They’re paying more taxes, but still unemployed.

“So, in an effort to make sure enrollments don’t plummet,
I decided it was high time to hold a youth summit.
‘You’re healthy right now, you young people,” I said.
‘But who knows? Tomorrow you all could be dead!

“‘To buy health insurance is your civic duty.
It’s a great deal, I promise. It’s really a beauty.’
But youngsters can tell when a salesman is lying.
They’re not signing up. They’re simply not buying.

“Affordable health care? It sure sounded nice.
Until people discovered the increase in price.
The premiums soared. There was something amiss.
Befuddled consumers cried “I can’t afford this!”

“People aren’t signing up and the website’s still broken.
The polling is in and the people have spoken.
They don’t like the law, and they’re upset with me.
They don’t like broken promises, apparently.”

Obama turned from the window with a sigh and a frown.
Kathleen shrugged her shoulders and said, “Don’t be down.
You got your law passed, with your trademark audacity.
Who cares if the website is filled to capacity?

“The law is in place, and they’ll have to submit.
So chin up! Shoulders back! We will win bit by bit.”

Matt Kibbe is the President and CEO of FreedomWorks and author of Hostile Takeover: Resisting Centralized Government’s Stranglehold on America.
