Christian Cop Loses Appeal – Must Attend Mosque and More Stories

a12iggymom's Blog

Niemöller is perhaps best remembered for the quotation:

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out–
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out–
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out–
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me–and there was no one left to speak for me.

Christian Cop Loses Appeal – Must Attend Mosque

A panel of federal judges in Denver, in an opinion written by Judge Harris Hartz, found that it is perfectly appropriate for a police chief to order subordinates to attend an Islamic mosque where Muslims “discussed Islamic beliefs, Muhammad, Mecca, and why and how Muslims pray” in addition to encouraging officers “to buy” Islamic books and pamphlets that were for…

From Climate Depot: Fired for ‘Diverging’ on Climate: Progressive Professor’s fellowship ‘terminated’ after WSJ OpEd calling global warming ‘unproved science’

Professor’s fellowship ‘terminated’ after WSJ OpEd declaring ‘the left wants to stop industrialization—even if the hypothesis of catastrophic, man-made global warming is false’. Prof. Caleb Rossiter: ‘Just two days after I published a piece in the Wall Street Journal calling for Africa to be allowed the ‘all of the above’ energy strategy we have in the U.S., the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS) terminated my 23-year relationship with them…because my analysis and theirs ‘diverge.’

Canada’s boreal forest is a key nursery for migratory birds, but tar sands development is destroying habitat and killing the birds that depend on it, according to a new report.

The report, published by the National Wildlife Federation and Natural Resources Council of Maine, outlines the risks Canadian tar sands development poses to migratory birds. More than 292 species of protected birds rely on the boreal forest for breeding habitat, including the endangered whooping crane, and at least 130 of those are threatened by tar sands development.

The Terrorist Conquest of IRAQ

Let me see if I remember correctly.  Back in 2001-2002 when POTUS George Bush Jr launched his “war on terrorism” he sent US forces to invade Iraq and oust the madman Saddam Hussein.  The idea was not to just weed out terrorists in that country but also to transform Iraq into a “beacon of democracy” in the Mid East, to use his words.  Time went on and a decade later US forces were withdrawn, for the most part, and Iraq was left to stand on its own and be the beaming light of democracy for the Muslim Arab world.  But, sadly, that has NOT turned out to be the case at all.

Mosul is Iraq’s second largest city and it has now been taken over along with large swaths of the country by terrorists.  We all knew…

We come to assure you that all proceeds well, but for reasons of security we cannot always reveal what is taking place. As we have done for some considerable time we work mainly in the background, to fulfil our responsibilities to ensure that the Light spreads as intended. This means that we closely monitor the activities of the dark Ones, so as to ensure that their activities are not allowed to interfere with the positive changes that are taking place. At present your world is going through a testing period of changes that are going to see an end of the dominance of the dark Ones. Some are taking place on a level that is obvious to you, but they also occur out of your sight and without your knowledge. Since time immemorial we have accompanied you through your travels, although we have never interfered with…

The Common Core Chuztpah of Bill Gates & CCSSO #stopcommoncore

Stop Common Core Illinois

Missouri Education Watchdog –

During the Washington Post’s March 2014 interview with Bill Gates, reporter Lyndsey Layton asked him what he thought about being called “the unelected superintendent of the country”.  Gates did not appreciate such a question and insisted Layton was making the interview political vs substantive.  Perhaps he had second thoughts about that title.  Has he now decided being the nation’s superintendent would be an appropriate job for him since he has invested heavily in the adoption and implementation of the Common Core State Standards Initiative?  The NY Times writes that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has decreed:

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, one of the country’s largest donors to educational causes and a strong backer of the academic guidelines known as the Common Core, has called for a two-year moratorium on states or school districts making any high-stakes decisions based on tests aligned with…
