Given that a number of our embassies and consulates were going to be closed in accordance with local custom and practice for the bulk of the week for the Eid celebration at the end of Ramadan, and out of an abundance of caution, we’ve decided to extend the closure of several embassies and consulates including a small number of additional posts.
Ramadan is a Muslim holiday, during which terrorists are typically extraordinarily active, reinforcing Islam’s stellar image as a “religion of peace.” The State Department did not say whether or not additional security was being deployed at embassies. Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton withdrew security from the U.S. consulate at Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2011, leading to the death of four Americans, including the U.S. Ambassador.
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.
The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.
Arming al Qaeda, the Islamist terror network that attacked the United States on September 11, 2001, would amount to “adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.” Impeachment can’t be far off.
A mother in Concord, New Hampshire will no longer be allowed to pray on school property after district officials decided to end to the practice, following a complaint from an atheist activist organization.Lizarda Urena has been praying on the steps of the Concord High School auditorium every morning since February. She began the tradition after bullets were found in one of the school bathrooms, and at first, would read Scripture aloud and pray for the protection of the students – including her two teenage children, who attend the high school.For nearly four months, Urena’s practice of praying at the school continued without a complaint, and officials took no issue with her presence.
Sen. Lamar Alexander took part in what was billed as a “salute to state GOP county chairs” in Smyrna, Tennessee on July 20. Only a handful of people showed up, despite the event being held in air conditioned comfort.
Tennessee conservatives are serious about replacing Lamar Alexander with a Constitutional conservative. That would be good not only for the 6 million people of Tennessee, but for the entire United States.
