Bible ban lifted in FL´s Broward
County schools

Breitbart Big Government, by Ken Klukowski

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 5/19/2014 10:10:06 PM

Following Breitbart News’s May 5 story that Broward County Public Schools had banned students from reading the Bible and that lawyers from Liberty Institute were threatening to sue, and our May 14 update when the school changed its story but still maintained the ban, the school system has now capitulated and will allow Bibles into the classroom. In a letter dated Sunday, May 18, first obtained by Breitbart News, the school system has completely reversed course. The letter tells Liberty Institute Litigation Director Hiram Sasser that the school “does not ban the Bible” and specifies that students may read it

The idiots that put the initial ban in place and then defended it still need to be fired.

In the early days of the Republic, the President of the US used to be the Superintendent of the Washington DC school district. A role that Thomas Jefferson took quite seriously. The first book he ordered on the curriculum? St.James´ Bible. So much for seperation of Church and State.

It was not a “Hard Choice” for Hillary simply to have told the truth about the vast fortune she and Bill accumulated immediately upon leaving office. Hillary Clinton’s interview with Diane Sawyer is getting a lot of attention because Hillary explained the $100 million plus she and Bill have made giving speeches as necessitated by their near poverty upon leaving office: SAWYER: You’ve made five million making speeches? The president’s made more than a hundred million dollars? CLINTON: Well, you have no reason to remember, but we came out of the White House not only dead broke but in debt.

Harry Reid isn’t just moving to Las Vegas from his hometown of Searchlight, Nev., to be closer to his grandchildren — he’s also looking to give the economy a boost. Reid and his wife Landra sold their home in Searchlight for $1.7 million to Nevada Milling and Mining, a mining company, over the weekend. Reid said, according to KSNV, that the the expansion of the mine allowed by the sale will create about 60 jobs. He also cited his upcoming reelection campaign in 2016 and the constant travel required to Sin City as another reason for the relocation. Reid further

Robert Reilly is one of the more respected men in Washington, DC. As a very young man, he was a special adviser to President Reagan. He is a longtime music critic, specializing in teaching the emergence of amazing new orchestral music. He was a spokesman behind the green line during the Iraq war, reporting directly to Paul Bremer, head of the occupational authority. He led the Voice of America. Reilly´s new book cannot get a hearing; there is a media blackout, a stonewall even among the conservative press who, according to a high-ranking think tank scholar at the Hudson Institute,

Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton´s new memoir "Hard Choices" officially launches Tuesday morning, but it´s already being savaged by critics for being overly cautious and, as a result, uninteresting. "TRUTH BOMB 1: ´Hard Choices´ is a newsless snore," Politico´s Mike Allen wrote in his Monday-morning newsletter. He went on to describe the book "written so carefully not to offend that it will fuel the notion that politics infuses every part of her life." "In this book, like in ´The Lego Movie´ theme song, everyone is awesome!" Allen quipped. The New York Times´ book-review section seemed to agree with Allen´s assessment. "There

Senators Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), together with Representative Lois Capps (D-CA-Santa Barbara), are pushing legislation to allow families to petition a court to bar a "dangerous" individual from buying a gun and confiscate any guns said individual owns. The legislation is entitled, "The Pause for Safety Act." According to the Sacramento Bee, Feinstein said: "We must do everything in our power to keep firearms out of the hands of those who pose a serious risk of harm to themselves or others." Boxer said: "It is haunting to me that...[Rodger´s] family...was desperate to prevent an act of violence

For the second time in two years, Governor Bobby Jindal has vetoed a bill that would have legalized surrogacy contracts in Louisiana. “All Louisianians are at liberty today to engage in informal agreements regarding surrogacy - this is simply a question of whether we ought to codify and regulate such agreements,” the governor said in his May 30 veto letter. “My heart goes out to those who face the tragedies of miscarriage and infertility. The inability to conceive or bear children is a deep wound in our society, unnoticed by most, and suffered by too many,” Jindal wrote

Yesterday, a federal judge in Oklahoma granted a temporary health care mandate injunction to approximately 200 Catholic employers. According to the Preliminary Injunction, the employers do not have to provide coverage for contraceptives, including those that cause abortions, and are exempt from all fines and penalties. In March, the Catholic Benefits Association (CBA) filed a lawsuit stating the Affordable Care Act violated its stance against contraceptives. U.S. District Judge David Russell said, in regards to his decision, "The harm posed to these plaintiffs absent relief is quite tangible-they will either face severe monetary penalties or be required to violate their

The Meaning of Treason

The report on Fox News that Sergeant Bergdahl at one point during his captivity declared himself a “mujahid,” or warrior for Islam, and may even have been allowed to carry a weapon puts at a premium an understanding of treason. Sergeant Bergdahl hasn’t been accused of treason and would be considered innocent until proven otherwise. The burden is always and only on the accusers. But all the more reason to understand what treason is and why it is so special under American law. Treason is the only crime the Constitution pre-empts Congress from defining. It’s also the only crime to

In an act of unmitigated bipartisanship, all Republicans and all Democrats in the U.S. Senate joined together on Tuesday evening to unanimously approve a resolution demanding the “immediate and unconditional release” of Meriam Ibrahim and her two children from the Sudanese prison where they are being held because Meriam refuses to renounce her Christian faith. Ibrahim, the wife of U.S. citizen Daniel Wani, has been incarcerated at the Omdurman Federal Women’s Prison along with the couple’s 20-month-old son, Martin, and 1-week old daughter, Maya. She currently faces a death sentence. Meriam and Daniel, who is also a Christian, were married

HAILEY Idaho - The hometown of U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, feeling a backlash over allegations that he was a deserter, has canceled a rally planned for later this month celebrating his release from five years of Taliban captivity, officials said on Wednesday. Heather Dawson, the city administrator of Hailey, Idaho, told Reuters that town officials called off the June 28 event at the request of organizers because the town "will be unable to safely manage the number of people expected." The decision came as the community came under mounting pressure to cancel the rally in the face of rising

Sen. Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat, stumbled Tuesday over basic American history, crediting Thomas Jefferson for authorship of the Bill of Rights during a debate over the First Amendment and campaign finance. “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute,” Mr. Schumer said. While Jefferson is deemed the principal author of the Declaration of Independence, he was not intimately involved in the writing of the Constitution or the Bill of Rights, which is

Hillary Clinton, who recently raked in $5 million dollars in speaking fees in 15 months, recounted to Diane Sawyer the sad tale of her former destitution, telling her, “We came out of the White House not only dead broke but in debt.” According to Clinton, she and her husband, who has made over $100 million since leaving the White House, “struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages for houses, for Chelsea’s education, you know, it was not easy.” But, as Clinton’s story goes, the two hard-working, middle-class millionaires somehow managed to put food on the table in

The platoon was, an American military official would assert years later, “raggedy.”On their tiny, remote base, in a restive sector of eastern Afghanistan at an increasingly violent time of the war, they were known to wear bandannas and cutoff T-shirts. Their crude observation post was inadequately secured, a military review later found. Their first platoon leader, and then their first platoon sergeant, were replaced relatively early in the deployment because of problems. But the unit — Second Platoon, Blackfoot Company in the First Battalion, 501st Regiment — might well have remained indistinguishable from scores of other Army platoons

It’s no secret that the administration of President Barack Obama has encouraged cities and states not to pick up illegal aliens. They even took the state of Arizona to court to prevent them from doing what the federal government refuses to do. If it’s no secret to us, it’s entirely reasonable to assume it’s no secret to the millions in Mexico and Central America who would like nothing better than to come north and illegally cross the border in order to pay a visit to the folks — also illegal.

Texas State Sen. Wendy Davis suggested that the Republican stance on immigration is a racist one, and that conservatives simply don’t like “people who don’t look like them.” “You need look no further than what happened in Arizona with their anti-immigration bill and the withdrawal of tourism and the impact to their economy as a consequence of what ideological thinkers did to that state,” the Democrat said at a Human Rights Campaign PAC fundraiser in Austin, The Daily Caller reported. Miss Davis is running for governor against Republican Attorney General Greg Abbott, who is leading by double digits in most polls.

The Obama administration gave the parents of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl extraordinary insider access to the military’s hunt for their son by having them take part in a series of secure video conferences with senior commanders as well as White House and State Department officials. A former government official involved in American hostage issues said he had never heard of giving a family such access and questioned whether sensitive information could have been conveyed to Robert and Jani Bergdahl and somehow leaked out. A family spokesman said he knows of no such breach. Soon after Sgt. Bergdahl went missing in

Ted Cruz has not made himself a popular man in Washington, D.C. The Texas Republican would argue that’s the point. But even for a Senator—an elected office with the backing of an entire state—ticking off powerful people can have consequences. (Snip) A week after his election to the Senate in 2012, Cruz was named vice chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which works to elect Republicans to the Senate. But he subsequently refused to endorse incumbent senators, or help them in their races, a fact that many Tea Party insurgents have seized upon. He hasn’t set foot in the NRSC in more than a year, sources say.

Senator Dianne Feinstein sharply contradicted Obama administration claims about the details of the deal in which five Taliban detainees were exchanged for captured Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Feinstein, a California Democrat who chairs the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, joins a chorus of Republicans, veterans, families of deceased soldiers, and other critics of both the deal for Bergdahl’s release and the administration’s failure to give advance notice to Congress before releasing detainees from Guantanamo Bay, as required by a 2013 law. In an appearance on CBS’ Face the Nation, Feinstein noted that after the release of the five Taliban officials

Since its first introduction into our lexicon, the definition of the word metrosexual has changed several times. At first it was used to describe young, urban males who were more interested in fashion, grooming and appearance than the traditional masculine male. Sexuality ran the gamut from officially gay, straight or bisexual. Then an article in Salon.com by Mark Simpson narrowed it down to the following: "He might be officially gay, straight or bisexual, but this is utterly immaterial because he has clearly taken himself as his own love object and pleasure as his sexual preference." In his book Male Impersonators,

The last question asked at Monday night´s closed-door briefing of members of the House of Representatives was a simple one: Who made the decision to transfer five top Taliban officials held at Guantanamo Bay to Qatar in exchange for the return of the Taliban´s lone American POW, Army sergeant Bowe Bergdahl? According to Buck McKeon, the chairman of the House Armed Services committee, the Obama administration´s briefers told he gathered House members that the person responsible for the decision to make the deal was not President Obama but Chuck Hagel, the secretary of defense.

The first family has bought a house in Asheville, North Carolina, according to a financial media company that claims it has an iron-clad confirmation of the future move. And given Barack Obama´s frequent trips there before and during his presidency, the rumor mill is spinning. He visited Asheville last year, speaking at an auto parts plant owned by Linamar Corp. to advocate for a minimum wage hike the day after his State of the Union address. Obama has visited the trendy city of just 85,000 people three other times since his first presidential campaign. It was his debate-preparation retreat before going toe-to-toe
