New York City has been ordered by a court to pay out $180,000 to three Muslim women after requiring them to take off their hijabs for mugshots, thanks to a lawsuit filed by a lawyer affiliated with radical Sharia-activist Linda Sarsour.
Three lawsuits were settled Monday in Brooklyn federal court stemming from the NYPD policy of photographing people wearing religious head scarves, the New York Daily News reported. The three women settled for $60,000 each.
A very disturbing story appeared in the European press this week that should concern all of us on this side of the Atlantic.
Stick with me while I explain why.
According to the Times of London, concerns have been raised about an “ethically dubious deal” between the government and national newspapers that involves journalists writing positive pieces about the Ireland 2040 plan.
The government’s “strategic communications unit” arranged for sponsored content to appear in local, regional and national newspapers including the Irish Independent and The Irish Times.
What is the Ireland 2040 plan, you ask?
It’s a €116 billion national development plan to prepare for an estimated population growth of one million people over the next two decades.
And where is this population growth going to come from, since Irish women have stopped having babies, as evidenced by their paltry 1.7 children per woman fertility rate?
How’d you guess? The projected growth Ireland’s technocrat leaders have planned is in the form of mass migration from the Third World.
“It is understood that a number of journalists at Independent News and Media were asked to write positive news pieces, which could not include negative or critical content. The double-page advertorials stated they were done “in partnership with the government.”
Robert Spencer, director of Jihad Watch, noted: “As absurd as it sounds for the Irish government to be paying journalists to sell out Ireland, it appears to be a more widespread practice than most people realize.”
I am here to tell you, from first-hand experience, we would be naïve to believe this type of unethical prostituting of the media only happens in Ireland, the UK or Europe.
Editor’s note: This is the second in a three-part series on South Dakota’s pocket of resistance and what it is up against. Read part one here.
As I walked through the state Capitol in Pierre, S.D., last week, I was struck by the magnificent beauty of the building, especially the murals that cover the interior walls and ceilings.
Many of the murals have a Christian theme. The one right over the main Senate chamber depicts the settlers of this great state as they reached out to the Native Americans with the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Capitol was completed in 1910, and the vast majority of South Dakotans were, at that point, still proud of their Christian heritage and how they shared their faith with a culture as yet unfamiliar with Jesus Christ, his life, ministry and message of salvation.
My, my, how much has changed in 100 years.
Many of the Lutherans here seem only interested in bringing the Muslims in from Somalia and caring for their initial physical needs, then abandoning them to the state and federal welfare agencies. Their spiritual needs are ignored pretty much from day one.
Many of you have noticed I’ve been quiet this week, posting only one article about the efforts of Kansas Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins to win amnesty for an illegal-alien Muslim professor with ties to a terror-stained mosque.
Rest assured I haven’t been slacking. I was traveling on special assignment, so let me fill you in.
Refugee resettlement has over the past couple of years become a controversial subject in many state capitals as more Americans educate themselves on the dark underbelly of a program that has been transforming U.S. cities and towns for 35 years.
South Dakota — like Idaho, Ohio, Michigan, Texas, Tennessee, West Virginia and Minnesota — is a state where patriotic Americans have formed pockets of resistance to the resettlements. They’ve seen the fraud and greed upon which the program — run by the United Nations in cooperation with the U.S. State Department and its federal contractors affiliated with private agencies like Catholic Charities and Lutheran Social Services — is based.
Every White House since Jimmy Carter has been on board with the program. To be fair, the refugee program in the early days did serve to rescue victims of communist oppression from Vietnam, Cambodia and Russia. But it morphed over the years into a totally different beast. It now serves as a population redistribution program whereby Third Worlders from jihadist strongholds like Iraq, Syria, Somalia, Sudan and Afghanistan, find their way to unsuspecting U.S. cities and towns.
The globalist program came up against an enemy in President Trump, however. He has cut refugee arrivals to a relative trickle, although they are still arriving from some of the most dangerous parts of the world.
My task Wednesday was to testify before the South Dakota Senate’s Committee on State Affairs in support of a bill introduced by Sen. Neal Tapio that would place a moratorium on refugees entering that state from any country that has been placed on a federal travel ban.
The Trump administration came oh-so-close last week to deporting a Muslim professor from Bangladesh who’s been living in the U.S. illegally for nearly a decade – but a Republican congresswoman has intervened to stop the deportation in its tracks.
