    Australia: Muslim cleric warns that Allah will punish men who use urinals and getting โ€œsplash backโ€ on clothes
    February 5, 2019 by Robert Spencer

    Nassim Abdi is not some nut. He is teaching from standard, mainstream Islam. Islamic scholars classify this hadith as sahih, reliable.โ€It was narrated that Ibn โ€˜Abbas said: โ€˜The Messenger of Allah passed by two new graves, and he said: โ€œThey are being punished, but they are not being punished for anything major. One of them was heedless about preventing urine from getting on his clothes, and the other used to walk about spreading malicious gossip.โ€โ€˜โ€ (Ibn Majah 347)

    10 wonderful things about today.


    2 ) Legos

    3 ) All of the witty people are on our side ๐Ÿ™‚ .

    Virginia has an odd way of celebrating black history month.__Michael J. Morrison

    4 ) Dan Scavino Jr. has been with President Trump since the beginning of Trumpโ€™s campaign. He is a no frills, subtle slayer on the team. Always he has had President Trumpโ€™s back.

    5 ) “When I say something that you might think is a gaffe, itโ€™s on purpose; itโ€™s not a gaffe. When Biden says something dumb, itโ€™s because heโ€™s dumb.โ€ attributed to President Trump.

    I donโ€™t know if he really said this or not but it is hilarious.

    6 )

    7 ) President Trumpโ€™s State of the Union Address was watched by over 23 million viewers. The vast majority of Independents, the people who decide elections, had a very favorable option of our presidentโ€™s speech.

    8 ) โ€In light of recent news, Iโ€™m now confused. Was the #SOTU response delivered by @staceyabrams ? Or was it @RalphMortham or Virginiaโ€™s Attorney General playing dress up again? โ€œ __CJ Pearson

    9 ) Homemade cherry pie.

    10 ) Who knew? there was a proper way to watch the SOTUA.

      This State of the Union speech was positive, enthusiastic and targeted toward good things. People don’t want to feel badly about themselves and their country, always guilty about something, and SJWs and PC scolds keep finding ways to target Americans. Seems mixed-up to say “forgive felons” while attacking and ostracizing people who wore blackface or made ill-thought-out statements 30-50 years ago.

        The hypocrisy on the Dem side is nuts. No death penalty, but if you donโ€™t like your baby, you can k!ll your baby. President Trump completely pulled the curtains back and exposed them. And he had those crazy women in white clapping like seals for…. themselves.

              It’s doubtful we’ve seen the last of Ryan in politics. I can visualize him running against the mess who’s your governor next election for same. That way he can stay at home…isn’t that the reason he gave for choosing not to run for the House again?

              In a way I feel sorta sorry for such lukewarm folk. He has no courage and…1) couldn’t see his way to bucking the WDC system he’s been beholden to all these years, and 2) was such a NeverTrumper that he wouldn’t support the man of his own party who we elected as President.

        Didn’t Northam say that if he survives the outrage for at least five days he’ll be OK and stay in office? He’s not leaving…and that’s fine by me ’cause the Dems in line are jerks, too, and the Dr. Genocide can be aborted himself a tad easier than the others. And there’s enough time for the Repubs to get their act together, use the Dem lack of honor and decency against them and perhaps win the governor’s spot once again. Not holding my breath, though.

        I just looked it up and VA governors have seldom been Republicans…since the Civil War: 2010-2014…1994-2002…1970-1982…1865-1874.

        If you want to see the “official” claptrap given out about Virginia’s role in the Klan, see the blather at wherein they claim the KKK was a right-wing organization. Funny that, seeing as they were all Democrats.

        Yeah, my paternal granddaddy was a Dem and a Klansman. And as I may have mentioned before, my great-grandfather was a slaveowner….18 souls who got sold when War Between the States arose. The gold was used to buy Confederate bonds. A respected man in his community, he encouraged others to do the same. They all lost everything. Too bad, so sad!

          What Happens if Governor Northam & Lieutenant Governor Fairfax Both Resign?

          Keep in mind the governor, lieutenant governor and the AG in Virginia are all in deep political danger.

          And guess what ?

          Third in line, the speaker of the House of Delegates, happens to be a republican.

          Speaker Kirk Cox (R) issued the statement addressing the scandals that have plunged the Commonwealth’s leadership into turmoil in recent days while vowing that controversy surrounding Gov. Ralph Northam (D), Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax (D) and Attorney General Mark Herring (D) would not affect government operations.

          Many employers pay better than minimum as they don’t pay retirement or taxes, treating the employee as an independent contractor. That way they can ensure the worker’s silence and keep themselves out of hot water. It can be better than $15 I’m betting.

    During the debate, Democrats confirmed this is the โ€œstatus quoโ€ for abortion in New Mexico:

    Elective abortion is legal in the state up to the day of birth even when there isnโ€™t a medical necessity.
    A girl of 12 or 13 can receive an abortion without parental notification.
    Underage victims of sex trafficking can be coerced into abortion without parental notification.
    A procedure that is legal for late term abortion in New Mexico is illegal to use on animals because it is โ€œcruel and inhumane.โ€

    Milwaukee has lost another officer this year.

    While serving a warrant Milwaukee Police Officer Mathew Rittner was killed by a thug.

    Heart breaking.

    I have a question and I don’t want to ask it on the local TV station or Twitter as I’m sure it will be misconstrued. It is stated that Rittner is a 17 year Milwaukee Police Officer veteran, it is also being stated that Officer Rittner served 3 tours in Iraq. Yer he is only 35 years old. Anyone have anything that can enlighten me on how the math can work? I’m sure I’m missing something.

    There is a procession carrying his body to the funeral home right now, the hearse is now at Miller Park, he and his wife were married there less than 2 years ago.

        He sounds like an amazing young man.

        Sadly I knew without even looking that the perpetrator was white because the news anchors are actually expressing anger and not saying that “We have to repair the relationship between police officers and the community”. Just sadness and anger from local talking heads. Sad. Sad that I even thought of it as they were speaking.

          Just about all governments, from city to Federal, put you on leave for the time you’re deployed. Most give you two (sometimes more) weeks of paid military leave but you are allowed to accrue seniority and some other benefit times. It falls under the Federal USERRA law and most states have a rider that fine tune the law, frequently adding to it, but they can’t detract from it.
          Many PDs allow persons to join at 18, as it appeared he did, but in most cases won’t allow them to carry a gun or have arrest powers until they’re 21. There are plenty of jobs they can have in the PD until they become 21 and it counts for civil service retirement.

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
