RRW weekly roundup for week ending September 15th…

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 16, 2017

I haven’t posted a weekly roundup for awhile but I am this week so I can tell you for the umpteenth time to exercise your free speech rights while we have them.

Prompting me to nag you again was the news from Oakland, Iowa I posted here minutes ago.

But, before I get to the nagging part, and since this is a round-up for the week, here are the top three most-read posts of the week (top posts of the last day are in right hand side bar):

Catholic Bishop Dolan says that the USCCB is not after more money when defending DACA kids, I beg to differ

White House could announce refugee ceiling for FY18 this week

Consider the optics Mr. President! Thousands of impoverished people arriving in the US when Americans are homeless

On that second post above, I’m looking for an announcement any hour (or any day). It was expected yesterday.  I’m reserving judgement on Trump until I hear what he decides on the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program.

Let the nagging begin….

Come on people, stop being passive news readers!  Find a way to become informed (yes, read the news, but do some research too) and then get that information and your opinions out there through social media, letters-to-the-editor or by writing your own blog.  Believe me, getting your ideas and information out to others is very satisfying!

Or, if it is comfortable for you, put on local informational meetings like the one in Iowa this week.

If you sit in your house alone reading news and stressing over the future of America, you do no one any good (and you hurt yourself!).

The mainstream media is not going to report on certain issues, so you have to do it.

Honestly, the most important thing we must preserve to save America is our freedom of speech, and the more of you fearlessly exercising it, the harder it will be for those trying to kill those rights.

They will call you a few names! Who cares!

Endnote: You can see my facebook feed in the left hand side bar here at RRW, and my twitter feed is in the right hand side bar.  I recommend that you visit RRW from time to time rather than depending on that e-mail notification controlled by wordpress that somehow seems to mysteriously drop people on a regular basis.

Dems join CAIR to silence speech in Iowa small town

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 16, 2017

This didn’t happen in Berkeley, CA or St. Louis, MO but in a small Iowa town’s community center.

I’m just going to give you the opening paragraphs of the story, but everyone of you concerned about the future of  our country should read the jaw-dropping account of a public meeting where Democrat protesters and Council on American Islamic Relations representatives teamed up to disrupt a presentation organized by a former Muslim, a convert to Christianity.

This is America?

From Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily:

While all eyes were on the University of California, Berkeley, Thursday night to see if radical leftists could control their anger over the mere presence of a conservative speaker on campus, it was a gathering in a tiny Iowa town that attracted the attention of one of the left’s key allies – the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Hurst, running for local elected office, was the leader (along with CAIR) of the infiltrators who disrupted the meeting requiring police presence so that speakers could continue. “He posted on Facebook suggestions that Guandolo, Christian and Gaubatz did not qualify for free speech rights under the First Amendment.”

CAIR, which was named an unindicted co-conspirator in a massive terror-financing trial held in 2008, crashed a meeting in Oakland, Iowa – population 1,500 in rural Pottawattamie County.

Why such concern for what’s going on in a place so far off the beaten path?

Actually, it’s not unusual, not in post-Trump America.

CAIR has made it a top priority in the wake of President Trump’s surprising election victory to show up, challenge and cause confusion wherever the truth about Islam is being taught, say experts on the organization. CAIR is worried that a nation under the spell of Barack Obama for eight years may start to wake up to some startling facts and discover that Islam has become the government-favored religion, the only religion Americans are not allowed to criticize.

This is all part of CAIR’s nationwide campaign against “Islamophobia” which coincides with the United Nations’ anti-Islamophobia campaign being carried out on a global scale. Cities such as Boston, Minneapolis, San Fransisco and Nashville have all taken up the cause of defending Islam against verbal attacks increasing referred to as “hate crimes.”

The speakers who had CAIR worked up into a tizzy were John Guandolo and Chris Gaubatz, partners in Understanding the Threat…..

Click here and read about what happened in Oakland, Iowa, a bigger deal then Berkeley where we have come to expect massive intimidation efforts to silence speech.

When is the last time you heard about Dems/Muslims holding public meetings crashed by people trying to silence their speech?  That’s right, you haven’t!

And, one more thing, if you have people like Hurst running for public office where you live, you better get out and oppose them!
